String of


burglaries in


City of Trenton

Gilchrist County Sheriff's investigators are searching for the persons)
responsible for burglarizing The Cracker Box Cafe and Hobo's restaurants
in downtown Trenton.
The Cracker Box Cafe was initially burglarized a week ago and property
was taken, explained Lt. Jeff Manning of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office. A second attempt to burglarize the Cracker Box occurred early Monday
morning around 2:30 a.m. The would-be burglar(s) reportedly threw a brick
through one of the restaurant windows to gain entry. An alarm sounded when
the window was broken, so the culprit opted not to enter the building.
However, Hobo's Restaurant was also broken into and burglarized. A 100-
year-old window was reportedly shattered by a brick as burglars sought to
gain entry into the restaurant. Vital equipment was reportedly damaged in
the break-in and a notice on the restaurant doors said the eatery would not
re-open until Friday, May 31.
A brick also went through a window at Gray Construction, though nothing
was reportedly stolen, Lt. Manning explained on Tuesday morning.
At this time, investigators at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office are
reviewing security video footage.
Anyone with information on the crimes is asked to call the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office at 463-3181. A reward is being offered.

Gilchrist County residents
gathered on Memorial Day to
honor those who made the ultimate
sacrifice to ensure freedom for all
American citizens.
On Monday morning, local Boy
Scout and Cub Scout members
helped Veterans place wreaths on'
the monuments set up at Gilchrist
County Memorial Park. After the
wreaths were placed the scouts
and veterans turned to the citizens
gathered and collectively said the
Pledge of Allegiance.
It was a special moment for many
in attendance, including Lindsey
Hutson, a Cub Scout, who led the
march into the Memorial Park
alongside his grandfather Clement
Lindsey, commander of the John
Hance Osteen Camp of the Sons of
Confederate Soliders.
Later in the morning, citizens
gathered once again to honor
service men and women who gave
their lives. The Memorial Day
Remembrance ceremony was held
at the Gilchrist County Agricultural
Complex.
The Bell High School Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps
presented the colors and Lucy
Lacy sang the National Anthem.
Jesse Crews led the Pledge of
Allegiance.
Jim Mash, Gilchrist County
veterans service officer, shared with
the crowd the history of Memorial
Day.
"Memorial Day, originally
called Decoration Day, is a time of
remembrance for those who have
died in our nation's service," Mash
said. "It was originally observed on
May 30 as a day of reconciliation
and a coming together to honor
those brave members of the military
who gave their all."
In 1971, Mash explained that
Congress passed the National
Holiday Act, which changed
Memorial Day to the last Monday
in May to ensure a three-day
weekend. As a result, the traditional
observance has diminished, and

many Americans have forgotten the
meaning and traditions of Memorial
Day, Mash said.
"On this Memorial Day-one of our
nation's most revered holidays-we all
pause to reflect upon the principles
that have made our nation great,"
Mash said. "We pause to remember


the true cost of freedom and to
honor those who made the ultimate
sacrifice to protect it. The brave men
and women we honor today selflessly
gave of themselves to defend a way
of life that we so cherish."
The veterans service officer said
that while Memorial Day is intended


to honor our fallen, we should not
forget those who have pledged to
make the same sacrifice if called
upon-the young men and women
still serving in Iraq, Afghanistan
and the United States and in more
than 130 foreign lands.

THS continues to write history in 2013


By John M Ayers
It was a celebration for three
outstanding Trenton High School
young men that just won their first
Class 1A state baseball title. On
Wednesday, May 22, they each signed
letters to continue their education and
play football at the next level. Cedric
Stokes will attend Adrian College in
Adrian, Michigan. Jonathan Smith
will attend the United States Military
Academy in New York. Hunter
Parrish will attend Maryville College
in Maryville, Tennessee.
Cedric Stokes will become a
Bulldog at Adrian College in Adrian,
Michigan. Coach Thomas explained
that Cedric is special. "This is
a young man that two years ago
decided that he wanted to be a player,
to work hard, do the right things and
be a building block in this program.
He became the 2012 Florida Dairy
Farmers Class lA Player of the Year
as he rushed for 2014 yards.
Coach Todd Bryant, the head
baseball coach for the State Champion
Tigers explained, you will forever
be addressed as "state champ" in
Trenton. I have known Cedric since
he was 5 years old where I met him
at a Suwannee Valley League T-Ball
tryout. Cedric is a great young man,
very respectful and loved by his
teammates. He has handled adversity
with flying colors. He has had some
great mentors, his football coaches,
Shannon and Christine Smith, his
aunts Pat and Jeryl. Cedric has
become a leader, in his own way,
to some of the younger kids. I have
seen his personal growth expand
tremendously in the past 12 months.
Like Jonathan and Hunter, Cedric has
helped to put Trenton football and
baseball back on the map. Cedric's
2014 rushing yards is a tremendous
accomplishment, one that takes
serious commitment and hard work.
We expect great things out of Cedric.
Adrain College is getting a great

afternoon at THS. Standing from left, Shannon and Christine Smith, Jeryl Brown and Pat Lindsey, and Terry and Rhonda Parrish. The school
and community attended this reception as they watched these State Champs live a dream come true.


athlete and an even better person.
"Cedric, continue working on your
academics and don't give up, never
give up, you will go far," Coach
Bryant explained. "We are all proud
of our Ceddie, keep grinning, good
luck State Champ and Go Tigers".
Cedric being a young man of
few words stood before his family,
coaches, fellow student athletes and
other friends and joking, asked if
he could text everyone and tell each
of them thank you for their support


during his years of being a Trenton
Tiger. Cedric explained "I plan to play
at Adrain two years and maybe return
to play at FSU. I may play baseball at
Adrain, too. It has been great playing
with my friends this year and going
out on top with a state baseball title,"
explained Cedric Stokes.
Jonathan Smith, will continue his
family tradition and become a cadet at
the United States Military Academy.
Jonathan is "mean" explained Coach
Thomas. As safety on the Tigers'


defense, he was named the "Hit Man"
on the Tigers 2012 Champion runner
up team. Jonathan is aggressive, he
loves the game of football and will try
to inflict pain on every hit he applies
on this opponent," Coach Thomas
explained.
Jonathan will be attending West
Point, an elite program that will
provide him with great opportunities
for his future. Jonathan and his older
brother Caleb will be playing on
the Army Sprint football team. This


Sprint Team was the 175 pound
National Champion in 2012, coach
Thomas explained.
"My dad went to West point and
so did his brother and served in the
Army. I've always wanted to do the
same and felt it was the right thing
to do. "Not bad, going 40-2 (13-1 in
football, 27-1 in baseball) and playing
in two state championships. We have
been really close all season and it is

Popular news anchor speaks



at AARPmeeting

Paige Beck, news anchor for WCJB TV20, was the guest speaker at the May 21, 2013 AARP meeting. She spent a great deal of time giving us the hu-,
man side of her life that we don't experience by just seeing and hearing her on TV. She answered questions that ranged from when she got started in news,
broadcasting, to coming to Gainesville, to doing her hair and makeup, as well as talking about her real passions, cooking, gardening, and painting. The 80
attendees enjoyed talking with her so much that I don't think anyone wanted her to leave the meeting.

The Boy Scouts Have Lost Their Honor
(Kent Heaton)


"On my honor: I will do my best to do my duty to God and
nmy country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people
at all times; to keep *.,. '" physically strong, mentally
awake and morally straight" (Boy Scout oath). The futility
of the wisdom of man is always found in the ever changing
nature of the present age. Laws of men change with each
generation suggesting that law is fluid with the whims of'
popular opinion. It is no wonder that chaos reigns in the
affairs of men, as they can never quite understand the
necessity of absolute truth. The laws of' God are the only
laws that do not change.
Gravity is a law that has not changed since the beginning
of time. Speaking of time, it has never changed since the
words of God formed the world "in the beginning"
(Genesis 1:1). Life and death are constant in absolute, truth.
The four seasons have always been and will always be as
prescribed by the law of God (Genesis 8:22) until time is no
more. But the laws of man are not so. The Boys Scouts of
America have abandoned their honor, to bow to the
minority influence. Recently the BSA has accepted
homosexuality within their ranks.
The oath of the BSA was founded upon a "duty to God"
but this is now only relative to a desire of man. Jesus said in
Matthew 7:21, "Not everyone who says to 'Me, 'Lord,
Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does
the will of My Father in heaven." There is something Jesus
called the "will of My Father." This 'will' is a duty that all
men must live under before their Creator. Like the days ol
Noah, men have returned to the carnal desires of their own
fleshly passions. "Then the Lord saw that the wickedness
of man was great in the earth, and that eve'y intent of the


thoughts of his heart was only evil continually" (Genesis
6:5).
Paul the apostle could be writing a letter to the United
States when he penned. "Therefore God also gave them 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. Amen. For
this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even
their women exchanged the natural use for what is against
nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of
the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with
men committing what is shameful, and receiving in
themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And
even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge,
God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things
which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness,
sexual immorality, wickedness ..." (Romans 1:24-29). So
much for Boy Scout honor, truth and duty to God.
Great men have been Scouts (Gerald Ford. James Lovell,
i....i.. ii i,, and Walter Cronkite). Greater men today will
stand against the cowardly action of the BSA as they destroy
one great bastion of honor and fidelity. To be "morally
straight" is now "immorally crooked" embracing one of the
greatest reasons our nation is being destroyed from within,
There is no more moral conscience in America. "Woe to
those who call evil good. and good evil; who put darkness
fino light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their
own eyes, and prudent in their own sight" (Isaiah 5:20-21).
God bless America?

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON Jared Douglas


Eating local has become a buzz
term for foodies in the past few
years. The idea is, that buying from
local farmers will give you fresh pro-
duce and the middle man will not be
making all the profit. Since we don't
have a farmers market close at hand,
about the best we can do is find a lo-
cal grown sign at the grocery store.
Last Saturday I was up on the north
end of the county, well Bell is actu-
ally about the center of the county,
doing a little shopping.
I found wonderful, fresh, locally
grown, string beans at Scaff's. After
buying a few groceries and a quick
trip to the Dollar General ', I stopped
off at Akins Barbecue restaurant for
some brisket, which was divine by
the way. Akins is our "go to" place
for many reasons. One is, I can stop
in and pick up a pound of meat and
bring it home and make sandwiches.
Have you ever stopped to think how
lucky we are to have Akins? '
Back in the day, after high school,
I worked in a restaurant in Cedar
Key for a few years. That experience
taught me how niuch work goes on
in the back to keep a place like Akins
open. Scott and Kim, along with
their wonderful staff, work so hard to
provide us all with good meals, year
after year. I think they are a blessing
to us all and we should probably tell
them, "thank you!"
I've been back in the garden again,
picking squash, string beans and cu-
cumbers. We have eaten so many of
each, that I'm trying to come up with
new ways to cook them. This is, in
fact, a good problem to have.
As I stood in the garden this week,
decked out in my standard gardening
gear, polk-a-dot rubber boots and a
big straw hat, oh yeah, I had on an
old ratty tee shirt and khaki shorts
also; lawsy, I don't want to scare the
neighbors anymore than I do already.
Anyway, back to standing in the
garden between the rows of Nellie
Simpson peas and the RW-40 peas
Watching the deep green sweet corn
rippling in the breeze. I stood there
for just a minute and thanked the
Good Lord for our abundant garden
and giving us the ability and time to
grow it. Do you ever stop to say thank
you for the simple things in life?
I have found that age brings wis-
dom and this wisdom makes me slow
down and be thankful for the simple
times, when everything is just fine in
rdy world, you know, the ordinary
days.
I tested two recipes this week and
could not decide which one to print,
so we are printing them both. Squash,
beans, and cucumbers are coming in
right now and these recipes use all
three.

Have you ever wondered how it
would be to catch and bring into the
boat a 10 foot alligator? Well, here's
your chance. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) has more than 5,000 permits
available to participate in the 11-week
alligator season, which runs August
15th through November 1st..
The application process is conduct-
ed in three phases and begins by sub-
mitting a no-cost application at any
tax collector's office, license agent
or through the Internet at http://Li-
cense.MyFWC.com myfwc.com/> During the Phase I
application period, alligator permits
are issued by random drawing. Phase
I ends May 12, and applicants are
limited to being drawn for only one
permit. If selected, applicants have
until June 3 to pay the cost of the
permit. Otherwise, the permit will be
placed back into the system, with the
other remaining permits, to be sold in
Phase II on a first-come, first-served
basis beginning at 10 a.m., June 7th,
and continuing through June 12th.
Those who received a permit in Phase
I and paid for it cannot apply during
Phase II.


Any permits remaining after June
12th will be issued during Phase III
on a first-come, first-served basis be-
ginning at 10 a.m., June 14th until
all are sold. Anyone can apply dur-
ing Phase III, despite having already
bought a permit in Phase I or Phase
II. Alligator trapping licenses and
two hide-validation tags costs $272
for Florida residents and $1,022 for
nonresidents. If you happen to buy
an additional permit during Phase
III, it will cost $62, regardless of
whether you are a resident or not. No
other hunting license or permits are
required to participate in the hunts.
Each permit enables you to take two
alligators from whichever county or
body of water you were awarded dur-
ing a specific harvest period. To pur-
chase a permit, you must be at least
18 years old by opening day, August
15th. If you don't have all the gear
necessary and you'd rather assist a
friend who purchased an alligator
trapping license, you can pay $52 for
an alligator trapping "agent" license.
You,don't even have to be 18 to buy
one. This license entitles you to take
alligators, but only when you're with
a licensed person.

You made it! Congratulations to
the graduating Class of 2013! Grad-
uation marks the celebration of a
long-awaited accomplishment, and
you now stand at one of the biggest
crossroads of your life. Graduation is
the end of a path that began years ago
as you left Mom and Dad to climb
onto the school bus and walk into
the classroom on your own. Now is
the time to celebrate the end of that
chapter, and begin a new one with a
new challenge: "What will I do with
my life?" Some of you have care-
fully mapped out plans, while others
are still struggling for answers. In
your search, consider the words of
Jeremiah 6:16:
"This is what the Lord says: "Stand
at the crossroads and look: ask for
the ancient paths, ask where the good
way is, and walk in it, and you will
find rest for your souls..."
Stand at this crossroad and look.
An intersection is a place where you
must make a decision about which
way to go based on where you want
to end up. Consider what you have
learned about life and about yourself,
and look for the good way that leads
to your future. The right path for
living is marked out by God, but it
requires a careful search to uncover.
Taking the "easy" path will always be
an option and it will often be tempt-
ing, but know that it leads to a dead-
end life...when we ignore God's
map, we lose our way.
Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse
of that good way, don't get frustrated
if you can't see the whole plan right
now.. .start with one step...it may be
that you find the directions for the
next step on the way. Get going... a
tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, but
only if it is moving. Be confident that
God has a plan for your life. In Ephe-


Angie Land
sians 2:10 the Bible tells us "For we
are God's workmanship, created in
Christ Jesus to do good works, which
God prepared in advance for us to
do." That word "workmanship"
also means "masterpiece"...one of a
kind! God created you uniquely for a
specific purpose, to do good works.
The kicker is that He has prepared
them "in advance" for you to do. All
we have to do is follow His map to
find them!
Find rest for your souls, of all the
things I could hope and pray for you,
this is it. In a world full of unrest,
strife and lack of peace, having rest
for your soul is priceless, and it only
comes from being in right standing
with the One who created you. No-
tice that this rest comes as a result of
standing, looking, asking, and walk-
ing, with Him. Your life consists of
the time between your appointed
birth and death, how will you spend
it? Choose carefully, because your
heart and your life matters!
Congratulations and blessings,
Angie

Eastside outlasts Trenton 21-17 Thursday


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers were at Citizens
Field in Gainesville Thursday night
to face the 5A Eastside Rams to see
what the spring drills accomplished
for both teams. This game was slow
to get underway, as both teams were
scoreless in the first period. Eastside
scored 21 points in the second period,
and Trenton came back in the second
half to score 17 points, in the loss.


The Tigers are redefining football
in Gilchrist County after experienc-

ous Simmons, who combined for 76
yards rushing, in the first half against
the Tigers. Simmons also had three
receptions for 45 yards and a touch-
down. Barry Johnson, a returning
first-team all-area defensive lineman,
had constant pressure on Trenton's
senior quarterback Stephen Smith.
The Tigers ran a limited offensive
scheme Thursday night and Eastside
was able to apply much pressure Ti-
ger's quarterback on Steven Smith.
Trenton coach Andrew Thomas re-
ported the Tigers will be doing more


things with their offense in the fall
than they showed in the spring. The
Tigers had 73 yards of offense in the
first half and ran for 175 yards in the
second half.
"We are going to be different in
2013, Thomas reported. "In 2012, we
were a high scoring team. We won't
be as high scoring this upcoming
season, and I think we will be lean-
ing more on our defense. I feel at our
level we are capable of getting back
to the state playoffs in 2013," Coach
Thomas added.

Alice Mae did a great job with the peg clothes pins. We're not always
about quilting, sometimes it's about fun and creating.


Log eafln (Qui tev


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, May 23rd, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum, 11050 NW 10th Ave,
Chiefland.
During the week, some material
and yard had been donated, so we
had lots to look at. Ann had finished a
second sampler quilt top for us to see.
These tops may be a future quilt in a
frame for us. Work was done on both
quilts and other projects that were
brought in for the day.
Thursday lunch was enjoyed by
twelve ladies. We had chicken and
yellow rice, fresh beans, pasta salad,
sour cream pound cake, banana cake,
deviled eggs and more deviled eggs,
sauerkraut with sausage, cupcakes,
squash and beef goulash.
Last week, I had "challenged" Al-
ice Mae to do something with a hand-
ful of the old peg type clothes pins.
We remembered using them with
craft items. There was no pattern
so she spent a couple of days look-
ing at them before starting working
on them. She made an aigel and the
other pins became ladies with dresses
and matching hats.


More of the pictures can be found
on our webpage levycountyquiltmu-
seum.org.
Greg and the boys were out this
week. The painting is about half
completed. They put up some lat-
tice work for the beautiful vine in the
front yard. The vine seems to grow
while you're looking at it. Thanks
Lancaster.
Our monthly yard-craft sale will
be this Saturday. After you visit the
Watermelon Festival, stop by to see
us. We'll be on the porch, since rain
might be in the forecast.
To our unknown donor on Sunday,
thank you so much for your items.
We're looking forward to opening
everything on Tuesday. Your support
is very appreciated.
We're open Tuesday thru Satur-
day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We can
be reached at (352) 493-2801, or at

The rocking chairs are waiting and
hopefully soon we'll be watching
trucks loaded with tomatoes and wa-
termelons from the nearby fields.


Overstreet Mulching:

The Science of Mulch


By Randy Miller
and Adam Overstreet
The Bible says in Hosea "My peo-
ple perish for lack of knowledge".
Now, surely a person lacking in
knowledge of things pertaining to
horticulture and science might not be
at the brink of life and death, agreed,
but you could be missing out on some
facts and tips that could not only put
life into your gardens and flower pots
but also your wallet. Similarly, the
scriptures imply a like concept. You
could be saving yourself from many
negative circumstances and even
sickness simply by understanding the
power of the words you speak over
yourself and your life (James 3).
Practically, Science is showing
that the use of mulch in landscap-
ing and gardening can actually save
you money in water costs as well as
increase flower growth and crop pro-
duction.
Studies show that a large percent-
age of water is lost through Evapo-
transpiration (ET).
Evaporation which is when water
changes into vapor and transpiration
which is when the water in plants
changes to water vapor and escapes
through plant leaves. ET is the amount
of water that transpires through a
plants leaves combined with the
amount that evaporates through the
soil in which the plant grows. By
monitoring the ET you can predict
how much water a plant may need
by day, week, or even year. Scientists
use the Gravimetric method to mea-
sure ET which states that one gram
of water equals one milliliter of wa-
ter. A study conducted by a father and
son gardener team in Texas, in which
they planted twelve identical plants
in identical pots, left six plants con-
trolled and six plants they mulched
with ground bark mulch. They placed


all twelve plants in bright light out-
doors under a roofed patio. On day
one they filled each pot until water
was running out of the bottom of the
pots, and for one week at six p.m.
daily weighed the plants to determine
the ET. Their concluding results were
that the mulched plants had about a
25 percent decrease in average daily
ET compared to the plants with out
mulch.
Another way mulch can help econ-
omize your agro-life is by using a
colored mulch. A study conducted by
Penn State University Ag Department
concluded that the use of red colored
mulch can increase crop production
as well as flower and plant growth by
20 percent.
Plants have a way to detect each
other and a method to compete with
their surrounding neighbors.
Plants have a substance called phy-
tochrome that acts a sensor to detect
changes in the color of light that is
reflected from the surrounding envi-
ronment. Plants use light as a signal
that enables them to compete with
their surroundings. They however, do
not know if the signal is a neighbor-
ing plant, dead plants on the surface
of the ground, or even the color of the
soil.
The plant recognizes far-red light
as the signal. If the plant detects a lot
of far-red light, it thinks there must
be other plants growing nearby. The
phytochrome will then signal the
plant to put more energy or photosyn-
thate in the top of the plant instead of
in the bottom of the plant.
Mulch not only improves the beau-
ty of the yard but as you can see it
also improves the quality of life.
Now you have the knowledge,
we pray it helps you and finds you
blessed in life and garden.

Local professor publishes

canoeing and camping guide

for historic Suwannee River


As a child, Rose Knox's imagina-
tion soared as she navigated Madison
County Florida's 600-acre Cherry
Lake by canoe. These early explo-
rations began a fascination with the
outdoors and canoeing that carried
over into adulthood. Knox, an edu-
cator and freelance writer, has now
spent decades exploring the historic
Suwannee River and area waterways.
In 2012 Knox's book Canoeing and
Camping on the Historic Suwannee
River: A Paddlers Guide was pub-
lished by the Florida Historical Soci-
ety. Knox co-authored the historical,
photographic guidebook with profes-
sional river guide Graham Schorb.
The 356 page work is a practical
guide to exploring the Suwannee Riv-
er for fun or historical value. It chron-
icles in meticulous detail how pad-
dlers can visit fascinating, significant
cultural and historical sites, including
pioneer cemeteries and former native
Indian villages. Schorb's "Outdoor
Kitchen" chapter even shares some
scrumptious outdoor cooking and
suggested camping locations along
the magnificent river. The book re-
lives the Suwannee River's compel-
ling history while offering practical
canoe camping information and in-
formative sectional maps to help pad-
dlers journey the 242 mile long river.
It also includes archival photographs,
noted Florida artists' renderings, and
wildlife and topography photographs
of the Okefenokee Swamp and the
Suwannee River Basin.
"I hope people will appreciate the
places as they paddle the legendary
Suwannee River," said Knox. "Know-
ing people lived, laughed, or suffered
and died here makes the river literal-
ly come to life. When I am paddling,
I can almost hear the whistle of a
steamship or hear laughter emanating
from the ruins of the old resorts. I can
imagine escaped plantation slaves,
running with the Seminoles. It is a
fascinating story and so many of the
tales have been lost to time. The story
of the Suwannee River is the story of
our entire country in some respects."
During her research and travels
down the Suwannee River, from the
Okefenokee Swamp to the Gulf of
Mexico, Knox has met many interest-
ing people historians, archeologists,
river people and artists including
noted artist Theodore Morris of Flor-
ida's Lost Tribes who contributed
some of his work.tp .the .manusript,,
"Meeting these talented people has
brought joy to my' life," said Knox"
But one aspect of canoeing that Knox
most enjoys is the natural beauty and
peacefulness she finds along the way.
"The serenity of the natural world
is like detoxification from the many
stresses of modem life," said Knox.
"All humans need silence. It is truly a
balm that soothes the soul."
Since publishing Canoeing and
Camping on the Historic Suwannee
River: A Paddlers Guide in 2012,
Knox and Schorb have been invited
to speak at several gatherings of civic
organizations and community groups

including the Florida Historical Soci-
ety meeting in Cocoa, Fla., the Na-I
tional Sierra Club at Suwannee River
State Park, the Teacher Honorary So-
ciety in' Madison, the Brotherhood at
the First United Methodist Church in
Madison, the Madison Historical So-'
ciety and Treasures Museum, as well
as other local organizations.
Knox and Schorb are currently;
working on their next compilation
which will chronicle the history of
the vast Okefenokee Swamp. Knox
credits many for encouraging her
creativity and love for literature
- "Many people have helped me in
my journey. Frances Sanders, my
fourth grade teacher, had a huge im-
pact on me. She was fascinated with
Robert Frost and with song birds. Her-
joy was contagious. Also, my NFCC
professor, the late Joe Akerman; he.
believed in the guidebook in its very
early stages. He said, 'Rosie, you've
got something there. That should be.
published.' I trusted his ideas because
he was a published writer." Knox also
credits her parents for helping her de-
velop an early love of reading and
research through weekly visits to the
library during her childhood "They
taught me that reading was fun. That
impacted me in a huge way, too."
Now as an instructor at North Flor-,
ida Community College, Knox hopes
to pass on a passion for reading and'
learning to her students "Students
must know how words can empow-,
er them. I try to make learning fun.'
If people are not having fun while,
learning, what is the point? I teach
students the power of their words,'.
and -how reading and -knowledge isI
actually free..All, youtihave to do 1is
to open up a book. Many of the soci-.
etal problems we face today stem di--
rectly from illiteracy and ignorance.'
Knowledge is Power I want them to
always know that."

When is Candy Dangerous?


When it is Used to Flavor Tobacco!


Tobacco companies are using candy and fruit flavors
to sweeten their products and make them
more attractive to our children and teenagers.


But this is a dangerous bait-and-switch designed
to addict younger and younger kids to tobacco
creating life-long customers.



Don't Let Your Kids Fall for the Trap.

Redd given AGCO scholarship


AGCO, a worldwide distributor
and manufacturer of agricultural
equipment, is the sponsorof a National
FFA Collegiate Scholarship awarded
to Emma Kate Redd of Trenton High
School in Trenton. Redd is one of 18
outstanding FFA members to receive
a scholarship sponsored by AGCO
andAGCO Finance, says Jason Marx,
vice president of marketing, AGCO
North America. Scholarships were
provided through the 2012-2013 FFA
Collegiate Scholarship Program.
"These students are selected based
on the leadership they have shown in
their schools and communities and


for their academic excellence," says
Marx. "FFA played a major role in
helping them set and achieve their
goals. Now, AGCO is proud to help
support them in their continuing
efforts to excel."
For the 2012-2013 FFA scholarship
year, AGCO and more than 60 of the
company's dealers also provided 120
$1,000 scholarships to deserving
FFA members in each dealer's local
community. This endeavor began
in 2011 and involves financial
contributions from the local dealer
and AGCO. AGCO's support for the
National FFA Collegiate Scholarship


Program is just one way the company
and its employees express their
appreciation for FFA and today's
youth.
"The FFA Collegiate Scholarship
Program connects AGCO and
the next generation of leaders in
American agriculture," says Marx.
"Emma Kate Redd and the others who
receive this honor will soon take their
place among those leaders and in our
communities as teachers, engineers,
agronomists and farmers."
Emma Kate's parents are Paul
and Lacy Redd of Trenton. She will
graduate on Saturday evening.

like one
big family
with us,"
Jonathan
Smith
explained.
Coach
Todd
Bryant
explained, "
Jonathan,
you will also be forever addressed
as "State Champ" in Trenton. We are
very proud of your accomplishments.
We are excited about your West
point appointment and your decision
to serve your country. You have
certainly earned this honor, a
prestigious honor. We look forward
to your sprint football games and
the chance for you and Caleb to be
together again. You too, have helped.
put Trenton football and baseball
back on the map. I am certainly glad
that your family chose to call Trenton
its home and have enjoyed coaching
you these past six years. You have
matured into a young man that we
are all proud of. You are a positive
example to your younger brothers as
well as other students at THS. West
point gets the best of the best. Thirty:-
seven stolen bases is phenomenal.
I look forward to seeing what youii
become. Like Cedric and Hunter, we
will always have a bond. Good luck
State Champ and Go Tigers, added
Coach Bryant.
Hunter Parrish is a great young
man, a good football player and a
young man that was a leader in the
THS football and baseball programs,
explained Coach Thomas. "We will
miss his leadership in the future and
we wish him all of the best on the
Maryville College football team. ,
Coach Todd Bryant explained,
"I have known Hunter since he
was a baby. Your dad and I played
throughout high school together and
you and Clif have been able to do
the same. You have"nmatured into 'a
fine young "maril Our* community is
very proud of you. You have worked
very hard for your grades and your
athletic achievements. THS is lucky
to call you her own. You too have
helped Trenton High football and
baseball become not just contenders
but champions. Maryville College is
getting a gem, I can't wait to walk
up to your future college baseball
coach and thump him on the head
and say, "I told you so, I told you
he was all that". Like Cedric and
Jonathan, I expect great things from
you. I believe you are going to find
your stride at Maryville and do great
things. Hitting 500 in baseball was no
fluke. We will always have a bond,
no matter where you go. Good luck
State Champ and Go Tigers, added
Coach Bryant.
Hunter explained, "Maryville had
a better football team than LaGrange
College. I also liked them because
they are going to let me play outside
linebacker, where I played last
year. LaGrange wanted me to play
inside linebacker, which I wasn't
comfortable with. It has been a fun
ride this year, playing in two state
finals and ending my high school
career with a state championship.
I still can't believe high school is
almost over. I wouldn't change
anything about it," added Hunter
Parrish. Hunter thanked his parents
and family, the THS administration
and coaches for helping him achieve
what he accomplished at Trenton
High School.
Trenton High School held this
signing reception and invited the
community to come share in the
accomplishments of these young men
as they now begin a new chapter as
they strive to achieve their education
goals and continue to reach new
heights in their athletic competitions.
Congratulations State Champs.
