Porter indicted


on 1st degree


murder charge


By Carrie A. Mizell
, A grand jury of 21 was selected on
Tuesdaymorning to hear the murder
case against Michael Damell Porter.
Porter, 53, has been charged with
the murder of Bell resident Joyce
Burrow, who was attacked during a
home invasion on July 24.
The jurors were selected, just after
noon, from a pool of 100 potential ju-
rors who were summoned to the Gil-
christ County Courthouse.
After listening to State Attorney
Bill Cervone present evidence on the
case, the grand jury returned a true
bill. A true bill is a written decision
by the grand jury that it has heard
sufficient evidence from the prosecu-
tion to believe that an accused per-
son probably committed a crime and
should be indicted.
The true bill was returned on three
separate charges: first degree murder,
burglary of an occupied dwelling
with assault and battery, and sexual

battery by threat of violence likely to
cause serious injury;
At press time, Porter was expect-
ed to return to the Gilchrist County
Courthouse on Wednesday, Sept. 4
and enter a plea.


Sex offender


arrested, charged


with molesting a


Marsha, Eloise, Jackie and Mark Langford


anaed


local child
By Carrie A. Mizell
SLess than three weeks after mov-
ing to Gilchrist County, a known
sexual offender has been arrested
and charged with sex crimes against
a child.
SJeffery JohnAllen, 49, -was arrested
pn August 27 and charged with one
count of sexual battery, two counts
of unnatural and lascivious conduct,
nd three counts of lewd and lascivi-
ous molestation.
At the time of his arrest, Allen had
registered his home address as 7369
SE 85th Trail in Trenton. According
to the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement sexual offender database,
Allen had just 'registered Gilchrist
County as his residence, on August
8,2013.
Lt. Jeff Manning, public informa-
tion officer for the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, said that deputies re-
sponded to an undisclosed location in
the county last week in response to a
call for service.
"During the course of the inves-
tigation,; it was determined that the
offenses had been committed," Lt.


Jeffery John Allen
Manning said. "Allen was placed
into custody without incident and
later booked in the Gilchrist County
Jail on no bond."
No additional information is be-
ing released by the Gildhrist County
Sheriff's Office on the location of the
offense to avoid identification of the
juvenile victim.
In 1994, Allen was convicted, in
Pasco County, on two separate charg-
es of lewd and lascivious on a child
under the age of 16.

Jackie and Eloise Langford were
pleased to learn recently that their
family has been chosen Cattleman
of the Year, by the Gilchrist County
Cattleman's Association.
The Langfords will accept a plaque
during the Cattleman's meeting,
which will be held at 7 p.m., on Sep-
tember 12, at Otter Springs.
Jackie and his wife, Eloise, along
with their two children, Mark and
Marsha, operate Langford Farms
which is located in eastern Gilchrist
County off County Road 337.
Jackie and Eloise (Hunt) Langford
first met at a movie theater in New-
berry. Eloise was raised in Jones-
ville and Jackie grew up in Gilchrist.
Jackie and Eloise married soon after
her high school graduation some 52
years ago.
A few years later they purchased
their first piece of property and cat-
tie.
Today they live and farm on family
land that Jackie's father, Joel Lang-
ford homesteaded in 1919.
Joel and Lessie Mae Smith Lang-
ford raised 13 children including
Jackie in the same location where
Jackie and Eloise's farmhouse stands
today.
Jackie recalls that when his father
ran cattle on the place, it was before
the fence law and their cattle roamed


far from the h6me place. This made
cow hunting, branding and cropping
a yearly occurrence.
He also remembers as a boy his
father, with the help of his large fam-
ily, making cane syrup to sell, as well
as killing 'hogs and curing the meat.
Jackie's mother sold eggs and had a
large vegetable garden each year.
SThe Langford's herd is a cow/calf
operation which includes several
hundred head of, mostly Angus, cat-
tie. There are still a couple of cows
in the herd that are direct descendents
of Spanish cattle that Jackie's father
once owned.
Each year the Langfords add
around 10 heifers to their permanent
herd. They also fatten 10 or so steers
each year for slaughter. The herd is
mainly grass fed. The family also
grows corn, hay, millet and rye to use
as cattle feed.
"The' cattle business has always
been good to us," Jackie Langford
said.
Langford Farms is a diverse op-
eration, which according to Jackie, is
the only way you can stay in business
today. The Langford's son, Mark,
heads up the family farming opera-
tion, which is a year round job. He
grows hay, corn, peanuts, watermel-
ons, cantaloupes, rye and millet.
"Farming has been good the last
few years, but you know what goes


up will come down," Jackie said.
Langford Farms is truly a fam-
ily operation as Jackie and Eloise's
daughter, Marsha, is also very in-
volved on the farm, working with the
cow operation, as well as the fencing
supply and lumber business which is
also run from the home place.
Jackie and Eloise have been in the
cattle hauling business, for many
years as well. They also sell Goose
Neck and Circle W stock trailers.
Eloise stays very busy on the farm
as the head bookkeeper for the fami-
ly's multi-faceted business. She also
cooks a large farm style dinner each


day for her family and the farm em-
ployees.
"We are so lucky to have our chil-
dren on the farm working with us,"
Eloise said.
Year in and year out, the Langford
family pulls together to keep their
cattle and farming operation, as well
as several retail businesses going
strong.
Gilchrist County Extension Agent
Marvin Weaver .said, "Their strong
family ties, as well as their work eth-
ic make the Langford family a good
choice for the 2013 Cattleman of the
Year Award."

Spring Ridge pancake breakfast


By Carrie A. Mizell
Dress in red, white and blue on
Saturday, Sept. 7 and enjoy a pan-
cake breakfast with neighbors, while
supporting men and women serving
in the United States military and their
families.
Members of the Spring Ridge Vol-
unteer Fire Department will be serv-
ing pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.,
at the fire department, which is locat-
ed at 5600 NE County Road 340, in
north Gilchrist County.
All proceeds from the pancake
breakfast will go to the Malcom Ran-
dall VA Medical Center Fisher House.
Built by generous public donations,
the Fisher House is a private-public
partnership that supports America's


military personnel and their fami-
lies during their time of need. While
providing a comfortable living situ-
ation during treatment for traumatic,


war-related medical crises, the Fisher
House meets a humanitarian need be-
yond that which is normally provided
by the Department of Defense and
Department of Veterans Affairs.
In most cases, the service members
are being treated far from home and
their stays are lengthy due to the.se-
verity of injury or illness.
There is at least one, of the 57 total
Fisher Houses, at every major mili-
tary medical center to assist families
in need and to ensure that they are
provided with the comforts of home
in a supportive environment.
The Fisher House's Gainesville
location provides a home away from
home with 20 accessible suites.
Each year, the Fisher House serves


as a refuge to more than 17,000 vet-
erans, military members and their
families, and has made available over
four million days of lodging to family
members since its inception in 1990.
No family pays to stay at any Fish-
er House, it is through generous do-
nations of grateful Americans that the
Fisher House is available to veterans,
active military and their families.
On Saturday, Sept. 7, Gilchrist
County citizens will have a chance
to take pride in their country, and
say thank you to the young men and
women who go bravely into battle for
the freedoms we enjoy, by attending
the Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire De-
partment's Pancake Breakfast.
Hope to see you there!

Gilchrist County native Easton Corbin has partnered with FFA and
RAM Trucks.


FFA members from Levy County had a chance to talk with Easton
Corbin on Friday, while he was in Tampafor a performance.


Corbin partners with

FFA, RAM Trucks


FFA members from Levy County
had'a unique opportunity on Friday
to meet with Gilchrist Counimty na-
tive Easton Corbin before an "Un-
plugged" performance in Tampa.
Due to a scheduling conflict, Gil-
christ County was not able to send
FFA members to the Ampitheatre at
the Florida State Fairgrounds for an
agriculture question and answer fo-
rum and performance by Corbin.
The opportunity to meet with
Corbin was a special opportunity pro-
vided to up to 500 Florida FFA mem-
bers, through a partnership Corbin
has with RAM Trucks ,, ,
RAM Trucks partnered with FFA,
and sponsored the "So God Made a
Farmer" commercial during the Su-
per Bowl. That promotion kicked off
a year-long celebration of the Ameri-
can Farmer, sponsored by RAM.
With that in mind, Corbin agreed to
be the singer/songwriter spokesman
for RAM and the American Farmer
promotion.
Corbin kicked off a tour of 12 cit-
ies with Blake Shelton on Friday, and
in each of those 12 cities, he agreed
to do a private "Unplugged" perfor-
mance highlighted by an agriculture
question and answer forum with FFA
members/chapters in the local area.
The first performance in Tampa
drew Bronson and Chiefland FFA
members to the private FFA event.
It wasn't a typical concert by any


means, the event did feature songs by
Corbin, but the highlight was just the
opportunity, for students to interact
with a former Trenton FFA member
regarding agriculture, the American
Farmer celebration sponsored by
RAM Trucks, and success beyond
high school.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ONi


About a month ago I ran into a
gentleman in the hardware store who
asked me to find a recipe for gumbo,
so I've been thumbing through cook-
books reading gumbo recipes for the
past several weeks.
When this month's issue of South-
ern Living magazine arrived at my
door, I was pleased to see that it had a
recipe for their best Louisiana shrimp
and, sausage gumbo. The recipe
sounded good, until I read that it took
6 hours and 25 minutes to make in
a slow cooker. However, I did glean
information from the recipe about
browning flour in the oven, which let
me skip standing at the stove to stir
a roux for 30 minutes or so. Now, I
know all you Louisiana natives are
twitching about now, after reading
that I would consider making gumbo
without making a proper roux. I un-
derstand when people want to mess
with one of our time honored reci-
pes by taking short cuts and such, it
makes me just twitch all over. But the
fact is, I'm a Florida native and that
frees me from the traditional gumbo
making process. So, what follows is a
Floridian's, aka Cracker's, rendition
of gumbo.
If this recipe was doubled and a
couple pans of corn muffins were
baked, you would have a wonderful
football game day spread.
It is not a recipe that's hard to
make, it just takes a while for the prep
work. The gumbo can be made in the
morning and shrimp can be added
just before the dish is to be served at
game time. The shrimp are added at
the end of this recipe because if you
over cook the shrimp they become
tough and tasteless.

1 1/2 cups chicken broth, homemade
if you have it
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 to 2 pounds, fresh shrimp,
peeled, deveined
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, optional
3 green onions chopped
Cooked rice, warm
Sprinkle flour in large flat pan
(10x13) and bake it for 10 minutes in
a pre-heated 400 degree oven. Let the
browned flour cool.
While flour is cooling cut sausage
into V4 inch slices and fry until lightly
browned in frying pan. Drain sausage
slices and discard sausage grease.
In another pan brown cut up bacon.
To the browned bacon and bacon
drippings, or grease, add the onions,
bell pepper and celery and cook un-
til tender. Add the garlic and creole
seasoning and stir well. Next, add the
cooked sausage slices and chicken
broth. ,
Pour canned tomatoes and juice
into a two cup measuring cup. If
tAe tomatoes are whole cut them up.
Add tomatoes to gumbo and stir well.
Taste for salt and pepper and season
accordingly.
Cover with a lid and let the gumbo
simmer for 30 minutes. Add shrimp,
parsley and onions. Cook for about
5 minutes, or until- shrimp are just
done.
Spoon hot rice into bottom of bowl
and ladle gumbo over the top.
Note: Okra can be added to this
recipe. Cut up about 1 1/2 cups fresh
okra and stir fry it in a frying pan with
a little olive oil until just tender.
Then add the okra when the to-
matoes are added. Many people add
dried thyme to this recipe.If you wish
to add thyme, try about 1/4 teaspoon.
Also if you want a hotter gumbo, you
might add dried pepper flakes.
A word about the sausage, we like
to use the small size links and lately
I've been -using the Conecuh brand
sausage which is made in Evergreen,
Alabama.
Andouillie is usually used in gum-
bo, but our family prefers smoked
sausage. When making this recipe one
cup of raw rice was cooked, which r
seemed to make the right amount.

Comments
By John M. Ayers
Now that September is here, I am
looking forward to pitching bait in
the marshes of the Big Bend tidal ar-
eas as soon as possible. As I looked at
the tides for this week, with the new
moon on Thursday, I started thinking
about the strong flowing tides, which
have always been good for redfish.
I enjoy catching the bronze colored
redfish, but I will be trying some-
thing new on my next trip. I will be
searching for areas that hold snook. I
am hoping between September 1 and
December 1, 2013 that I can catch a
slot size snook and of course taste
what the old timers used to call, a
soap fish.
Snook season opened in Florida 'on
September 1, and just thinking about
catching one of these in the 28-33"
slot limit makes me want to go this
afternoon.
I have never caught a keeper size
snook, but I have always heard it is an
experience much like catching a bass
on steroids. I have caught hundreds
of bass over the years, on all kinds of
lures, but I can honestly admit that I
am more excited about my first snook
run than I was when I caught my near
double digit size bass on the Suwan-
nee River years ago.
I have hopes that the Suwannee
River will soon return to its normal
levels. The fish should be in good
health as the river has been out of its
banks for months now.
The mullet in the saltwater marsh-
es should be nearing their prime as
they prepare for pre-spawn. This is
the best time of year to eat the oily
flesh mullet. Mullet is one of my fa-
vorite fish to eat, especially when it
has been smoked several hours over
a good woody smoke.
Writing this makes me, want to
catch mullet and prepare some
smoked spread. This too, is tasty.

Cadet Smith

completes -

basic training

at West Point

Submitted
Cadet Jonathan Daniel Smith, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Shannon Smith of
Trenton, FL, completed Cadet Basic
Training (CBT) at the U.S. Military
Academy.
Smith, who is the son of Shannon
and Christine Smith, entered West
Point on July 1, and has successfully
completed six weeks of CBT.
CBT is one of the most challenging
events a cadet will encounter over the
course of their four years at the acad-
emy.
The initial military training pro-
gram provides cadets with basic
skills to instill discipline, pride, co-
hesion, confidence and a high sense
of duty to prepare them for entry into
the Corps of Cadets. '
Areas of summer instruction in-
cluded first aid, mountaineering,
hand grenades, rifle marksmanship
and nuclear, biological, and chemical
training.
Smith began classes Aug. 19.
The West Point curriculum offers
37 majors balancing physical sci-
ences and engineering with humani-
ties and social sciences leading to a
Bachelor of Science degree.
Smith graduated from Trenton
High School in 2013.
He plans to graduate from West
Point in 2017 and be commissioned
as a second lieutenant in the U.S.
Army.

The fuel island canopy at the former Colt's filling station in downtown Trenton was torn down.


Hazardous building in


Trenton partially demolished


By Carrie A. Mizell
After being declared unsafe, the
fuel island canopy and the collapsed
remains of an addition, at what was
once Colt's filling station on, State
Road 26 in Trenton, were torn down
last week.
Earlier this year, the old gas sta-
tion-turned sub shop, was classified
as a hazard to the general health and
welfare of the public by the City of
Trenton's land development regula-
tion administrator. To say nothing of
the building's unsightly appearance
to travelers along State Road 26, who


drive thru Trenton going to and from
Gainesville each day.
The building's fuel island canopy
suffered from years of overexposure
to the elements of sun, rain and wind,
causing the wooden beams to rot and
the metal roof to mangle. Pieces of
the building's materials were fall-
ing or being blown off by wind and
onto neighboring properties, includ-
ing State Road 26. On the east side,
the building boasted the collapsed
remains of a corrugated metal addi-
tion. The roof of the structure had
completely caved-in, which resulted


in the complete detachment of all the
structure's walls.
Following the May 15,2013 report,
which was filed by Taylor Brown,
who was acting in the capacity of the
City of Trenton's land development
regulation administrator, demolition
permits were secured.
No one with any legal interest in
the property, which is owned by SCR
Trust/Wayne Butler Holliday, sought
to appeal the demolition, therefore
the elements deemed unsafe were re-
moved last week from 1022 E. Wade
Street.

The American Cancer Society is
looking for volunteers to enroll in a
research study called Cancer Preven-
tion Study-3. It's an opportunity, for
people to help the American Cancer
Society better understand how to pre-
vent cancer and save more lives.
Volunteers will help the American
Cancer Society better understand
how lifestyle, genetics and the envi-
roument affect cancer and how the
disease can be better prevented. Na-
Stionally, the American Cancer Society
is looking for 300,000 volunteers to
help them reach their ultimate goal-
to eliminate cancer as a major health
problem. Locally, 350 volunteers
are needed in North Central Florida.
Could you be one of those people? A
volunteer, who could prevent even
one family from hearing the words
"you have cancer."
The study is open to men and wom-


en in the United States and Puerto
Rico, who. are between the ages of
30 and 65, has never been diagnosed
with cancer, not including basal or
squamous cell skin cancer. Study par-
ticipants must be willing to commit
long-term, which means completing
periodic follow up surveys at home.
The enrollment process involves
two steps-one in person and one at
home. As part of the in-person en-
rollment, volunteers will be asked to
read and sign an informed consent
form, complete a- brief \written sur-
vey, provide some physical measure-
ments and give a small blood sample.
The blood sample will be similar to a
doctor's visit, -7 teaspoons total, and
will be taken by a certified, trained
phlebotomist. At home, volunteers
will complete a more comprehensive
baseline survey that asks for informa-
tion on lifestyle, behavioral and other
factors related to personal health.


Upon completion of the enrollment
steps, the American Cancer Society
will continue to mail follow-up sur-
veys every few years to update per-
sonal information.
Local enrollment is being made
possible in partnership with North
Florida Regional Medical Center and
Ocala Health. For more information,

ment, visit www.gainesvilleocalacp3.

As students in Gilchrist County,
and throughout the state of Florida,
transition to new Common Core
State Standards, critics question if
the more rigorous guidelines mean a
loss of control at the local level.
Janet Bradley, director of secondary
education for the Gilchrist County
School District, calls Common Core
"good, rigorous standards."
As an invited guest, Bradley spoke
last week at the Gilchrist County
Republican's meeting about Common
Core and what the new English
language arts and mathematics
standards will mean for Gilchrist
County students and teachers. Her
presentation on Common Core
prompted quite a firestorm from
critics on Common Core who were in
attendance.
Local opponents expressed
skepticism over the new standards.
A few vocal critics even insinuated
that Common Core was started in a
backroom meeting somewhere in
Washington, D.C. and is yet another
attempt by the federal government,
specifically President Barack Obama,
to take back the personal freedoms
Americans enjoy.
Bradley explained that standards in
Florida is not a new concept. Basic
Standards were initiated in the 1980's
and stayed in place until 1996 when
they were replaced by Sunshine State
Standards. In 2008, the legislature
passed Next Generation Sunshine
State Standards (NGSSS), which is
what Gilchrist County teachers are
currently teaching. Common Core
State Standards are being blended into
the Gilchrist County curriculum this
year and will be fully implemented in
2014-2015.
Contrary to the misinformation
that is currently circulating, the
nation's governors and education
commissioners, through their
respective organizations, the
National Governor's Association
(NGA) and the Council of Chief
State School Officers (CCSSO) led
the development of Common Core,
Bradley explained. Teachers, parents,
school administrators and experts
from across the United States worked
with state leaders'to provide input on
the development of Common Core.
"Teachers have been a critical voice
in the development of the standards,"
Bradley said.
The NationalEducationAssociation
(NEA), American Federation of
Teachers (AFi), National Council
of Teachers of Math (NCTM) and
National Council of Teachers of
English (NCTE) provided specific
feedback on the standards.
Bradley told Republicans that new
standards are needed for students
to be ready for college and careers,
technology and globalization. She
pointed out that the United States

lags behind other countries in'
student academic achievement and
in preparing students beyond the
classroom.
"Gains have been made on the
National Assessment of Educational
Progress (NAEP) reading and math
assessments, but high school students'
performance has remained flat for
decades," Bradley said. "Our students
trail students from other countries in
mathematics and science."
With all the technology being
developed in the world now, Bradley
said it's imperative that Gilchrist
County students are taught how to
use it before graduating from high
school, so they will be prepared to
enter the world, and excel. Most jobs
in America did not exist a decade
ago, Bradley explained. Standards
are designed to ensure that students
graduating from high school are
prepared to' enter college or enter the
workforce.
"We have to get our kids ready
across the board, regardless of what
they want to do," Bradley said.
A graduating senior, who doesn't
want to go to college, but maybe
wants to enter the field of auto
mechanics, for instance, will have
to know technology skills because
everything is computerized now.
Bradley stressed to Republicans
that Common Core State Standards
are goals, not curriculum. Standards
are expectations for what a student
should know by the end of the school
year. The standards are a clear set
of shared goals and expectations
for what knowledge and skills help
students succeed, Bradley explained.
Local teachers, principals and district
leaders will decide how the standards,
which stress critical thinking, are
met.
Some opponents of Common
Core have expressed concern over
reading lists that include books with
a focus on controversial subjects like
homosexuality. As a conservative,
Republican herself, Bradley said
the Common Core reading lists are
nothing more than guideposts for
teachers to look at and choose, based
on the lists, the type of complexity
appropriate for their students' grade
level.
According to Bradley, the Gilchrist
County School District currently has
a procedure in place that requires
teachers fill out a "novel request
form" if they wish to read novels to
their students. A review committee
determines if the requested novel is
appropriate for the classroom before
it is read to students or assigned for
students to read. The same screening
method would be utilized with


Common Core.
Also, when new textbooks are
selected, Bradley said all teachers
throughout the school district have
input on textbooks for their grade
level or content. Under Common
Core, school districts can choose the
instructional materials used to teach
Common Core. The standards do not
dictate how a state, district, school
system or teacher has to teach the
standards.
One advantage to Common Core
State Standards is that students will
have the same standards when they
move from state to state. Currently the
different states cover different topics
at, different grade levels therefore
students who move frequently,
specifically military families, may
risk falling behind. At press time, 45
states, and the District of Columbia
had approved Common Core State
Standards.
Though Common Core was
written for English language arts and
mathematics for grades kindergarten
to 12th grade, all subject areas will
require reading and writing under
the more in depth rigorous standards.
The shift in English language arts
instruction will mean ,that students
have to give text based answers, no
longer will they be able to answer
a question with, "This is what I
think..." Instead, they will have to
back up their answers with text.
Also, there will be an increase in
the. percentage of informational
texts students are reading. As for
mathematics instruction, the focus
will shift to narrow and deeper
understanding of concepts. Bradley
explained that students will be taught
fewer standards for each grade level,
but they will be expected to master
each standard before advancing to the
next grade level, because once they
reach the next grade level there will
be no review over concepts learned
the year before. Students will also
be taught a deeper understanding, in
other words, they will be expected to
learn the concept not just a trick to
get it right.
"The standards position students to
be independent learners and critical
thinkers," Bradley said. "Students
will learn to apply their knowledge
to real-world situations through
performance events."
Though some remain, skeptical
about Common Core, Bradley pointed
out that the Florida Legislature
approved the standards, therefore
the Gilchrist County School Distriqt
is required by law to implement
Common Core State Standards.

Core, visit corestandards.org

that it is neither the role of the United
States Federal government to do so,
nor the responsibility of the Ameri-
can taxpayer to fund such an uncon-
'stitutional act.
The Founding Fathers never in-
tended an act of war to be conducted
without the consent of Congress and
if we are to engage in military aid or
'action in Syria, we are engaging in an
act of war against a sovereign nation.
While I find the death and destruc-
"tion occurring in Syria on behalf of
both the Assad regime and the rebel
forces deplorable, I must listen to the
Countless Americans and constituents
'who have pleaded with both my Col-
-leagues and me in Congress to not
engage.
The situation we find ourselves in
today is due to several\ decades'of
'failed foreign policy and empty polit-
'ical bluffs that have placed an incred-
ible burden on the American people.
'Understanding that the President may
proceed independently of Congress
'under the War Powers Act, it is my
hope that he will consider more than
'just a consultation with Congress on
,these very serious actions. It is time,
'as evidenced more than ever, that we
restore the balance of power t6 the
branches of the Federal government.
'" Continuin-d6ho n shihs"'6th' f ui-
checked power by the President will
Result in grave consequences for both
'America's foreign policy and the Ad-
4inistration."

By Angle Land


SWouldn't it be great if we could
fix other people?? Since we are all
prone to try this, you (like me) have
discovered that trying to change
somebody is a lot like spitting in
the wind, it doesn't work, and it can
get real messy! In fact, we are even
limited in our own ability to produce
lasting change in ourselves, so why
on earth do we ever think we can
change someone else?
The boundary of, power makes
clear what we have .power over and
where we have no p6wer. It is critical
for us to understand that we have no
power over the attitudes and actions
of other people, we cannot make
them more mature or responsible. We
also cannot change another person's
character, or stop their bad habits, no
matter how obvious it is to us that
they need to., 1 ,
What we do have is the power to
influence others. Webster's diction-
ary defines "influence" as "power of
producing an effect without force or a
direct command." Think about some
things that we often do to try and get
someone to change: repeat ourselves
over and 6ver (better known as nag-
ging), criticize, scream and yell,'bully,
threaten, withdraw and give the silent
treatment: Now think about those
who influence you, Would someone
doing these things make you want to
listen and cooperate?" Me neither.
We all are more likely to respond
to someone who is not trying, to "fix
us" even if we know they don't ap-
prove of our choices or behavior.
Instead we cala draw a boundary by
saying something like, "Your irre-
sponsible behavior (be specific) is
causing problems in our relationship.
Is there 'some way I can help you? I
love you, but if this behavior contin-
ues our relationship will suffer (ex-
plain how). It is your choice." This
allows the "offender" to be aware of
the problem and to understand the
consequences if they continue their
irresponsible' behavior. This may
mean not being included in certain
activities or a distancing in the rela-
tionships. It also gives the freedormi
to choose to change the behavior
with the benefit of being reconnected -
to the relationship..
The problem is that we spend so


SAngie Land
much time and effort trying to change,
someone with ways-'that hurt our in-
fluence with them, that we actually
lose what we did have power over to
start with.
The most important part of the
boundary of power is gaining wis-
dom, so that we don't spend time and
energy where we have no power and
keep our influence where we do. The
very familiar "Serenity Prayer" of-
fers a great explanation:
"God, grant me the serenity (calm
and without worry, stress or distur-
bance) ,* '
to accept the things I cannotchange.
(have no power over),
the courage (the ability to face
danger, difficulty, uncertainty, or pain
without being overcome by fear or
being detoured from a chosen course
of action) '
to change the things -I can (that I
do have power over),
and the wisdom to know the dif-
ference.
The Bible tells us in James 1:5 that
"If anyone lacks wisdom, they should
ask God, who gives.generously to all
without finding fault, and it will be
given. to him." This means that we
can bring our problems to God and
ask the question: Do I have the power
to change something in this situation,
and if I do, where? When we do, He
will generously give us wisdom with-
out blaming and finding fault. Why
would God do this? He wants us to
have strong, healthy relationships,
Because our hearts do matter.'

JCLC Summer Camp


Trenton High School cheerleaders andfootball players read to kindergarten andfirst grade students at TES last week.


Athletes participate in TigeReader


Program at Trenton Elementary


Submitted
Last Wednesday, members of the
THS Varsity Football Team and Var-
sity Cheerleading Team participated
in the TigeReader program.
Eleven pairs of athletes surprised
Kindergarten and First grade students
at TES by coming in and reading to
them.
"THS athletes not only excel
on the game field, but also in the
classroom. It is "important to them
to share their excitement for reading
with the next generation of Tigers!,"
said Varsity Cheer Coach Christine
Smith.


Coach Smith, along with Varsity
Football Coach Andrew Thomas,
worked together to create this pro-
gram to allow the athletes to promote
literacy in the elementary school.
Although initially nervous at the
idea of reading aloud to the classes,
the athletes emerged with big grins!
Stories of rooms full of laughter, to
kids able to answer comprehension
questions, to receiving hand-drawn
pictures from the students began to
emerge.
Without exception, each reader has
already asked to be included in the
next round of TigeReader.

By Cadet Captain Darby Perry,
Public Affairs Officer
On June 10, 2013, seven cadets
from the Bulldog Battalion left for
Camp Shands in Melrose, Flori-
da. Those seven cadets were Ryan
Cumbie, Amber Hockenberry, Joseph
Miller, Charles Bargar, Dustin Har-
ton, Michael Bare, and Darby Perry.

tenth through the fifteenth. While

various activities to include compass
courses, rappelling towers, outdoor
skills, math and science classes,
swimming, a Raider Rope Bridge,
zip line, and a confidence course.
The outstanding cadet for this
year's JCLC, was Cadet Ryan Cumb-
ie of Bell High School. He was se-
lected over 300 JROTC cadets from
throughout Florida to be the Battal-
ion Commander for the graduation.
ceremony on the last day of JCLC.
When the cadets returned I inter-
viewed Ryan:
Why do you think you were select-
ed to be Battalion Commander?

Cadet Cumbie: "I had worked ex-
tremely hard through out JCLC to be
the very best I could be. I also had
experience with promotion boards
before."
How did you feel when First Ser-
geant Kelly told you that you were
going to be Battalion Commander?
"I was very stunned and surprised
when he told me and my company
that I had been promoted to Battalion
Commander."
Was that your goal to be Battalion
Commander?
"It was my goal to be the best I
could. It was my goal to be at least
in the top two percent, but it was a
surprise to be the highest; it was an
,extreme honor."
What put you ahead of other ca-
dets?
"I had been to JCLC before dnd I
paid attention to all of the orders and
regulations."
Congratulations to Cadet Ryan
Cumbie for his outstanding perfor-
mance of leadership skills and team
work at JCLC.

Springhouse

Quilters' News
By Lois Scott, publicity
Springhouse, Quilter's held their
regular monthly meeting on August
13, with the Springhouse, building
full of quilters for both the day and
the night group.
With summer winding down,
members are thinking up new things
for the upcoming holidays.
Members are busy finishing up
their community projects; donations
of quilts to several organizations
within the community who serve
needy children.
Kathy Beaulieu was in charge of
the meeting and she presented a chal-
lenge to the members to make Christ-
mas quilt blocks for a drawing in
early December. Each member makes
as many blocks as desired and then a
drawing is held to see who wins all
of the blocks.
Mary Rawlins, who went to visit
her daughter in Tennessee, gave a
short demonstration on the fabric and
thread painting class she took at the
John C. Campbell Art School while
in Tennessee.
Cheryl Watson presented the final
plans for the day camp to be held at
the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe.
Approximately 35 members will be
participating in the camp learning
new fabric and thread techniques.
To finish off the year, Donna Hayes
and Chris Schreiber are planning a
yard sale to help members get rid of
some of their extra unused items. The
yard sale is planned for September 21
on Main Street in Trenton.
Show and tell is always interesting
with so many quilts, wall hangings
and other fabric items. It is always
amazing to see what can be complet-
ed in such a short time.

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.

Trenton and Mayo


tie


7-7


By John M Ayers
The season opener for Trenton
and Mayo was spoiled Friday night
as large scale thunderstorms passing
through north central Florida stopped
the action on several high school
football games.
The Tigers and the Hornets were
able to play the first and second
quarters, but the second half was
called due to strobes of lightning that
lit up the sky. The teams were knotted
at 7 at halftime.
The second half was not played
because of weather conditions. This
was not a District game for either
team, so the remaining half will not
be rescheduled.
In this game, the first quarter
resulted in neither team being able to
score. Lafayette scored early in the
second period whenBrycen Lee threw
to Tim Flemming, a 13-yard pass for
a touchdown. The Tigers came right


back in their next possession to tie the
score. Steven Smith connected with
Hamp Cheevers and the sophomore
receiver ran away from the defense,
on a 68-yard completion, for the
score. Marcus Mannerstedt added the
PAT to tie the score at 7-7.
These two teams, if they are
successful in their respective districts
this season, could have another
chance for a victory in post season
to move further in the state playoffs.
Both of these teams would like to
have the opportunity to defeat the
opponent at the end of the season.
The Tigers will have their home
opener Friday night as they welcome
the Branford Buccaneers. The Bucs
were unable to complete their game
against Aucilla Christian Friday
night due to lightning in Branford.
The Tigers home opener will kickoff
Friday night in the Jungle at 7:30
p.m.


Trenton JV beats Bell 14-8


The Trenton High School 2013 State Championship Baseball Team had an
informal gathering on August 29 to receive their long awaited championship
rings. Each player and coach was presented a ring purchased with proceeds
from fund raising by the team members. All of last year's underclassmen
were able to be present at the meeting but last year's seniors and former
trainer were not able to attend. The players were extremely pleased with
the large rings that included an orange stone with a baseball field setting on
the top of the stone. Each player's name, position and jersey number were
inscribed on the ring. The rings are similar in size to an SEC Championship
ring. The seniors from last year will receive their rings from their families
when time permits. The Tiger baseball team would once again like to
thank the community for all the support they have received. The rings are
outstanding and cap off an outstanding season. Go Tigers.
