Govmernor Rick Scott spoke at the Gilchrist County Republican
Executive Committee's Stars of Freedom Dinner last week.


By Carrie A.'Mizell
Veterans were honored on October
10 at the Gilchrist County Republican
Executive Committee's Stars of
Freedom Dinner.
"Americans are thankful for the
many .sacrifices, great and small,
which mark daily life in the United
States, yet know we must first
remember those who defend our
freedom by risking, and sometimes
sacrificing their lives," said Dan
Taylor. "In this grFeat land, there
are many who are called stars who
become famous and wealthy for their
talents. Tonight we want to celebrate
those we sometimes take for granted,
our stars of freedom. We celebrate
those stars who are far away at this
moment, perhaps facing danger in
the dark. We honor those who protect
us at home in a thousand thankless
tasks. We hope to be worthy of those
who have come home with wounds
to bear and those whose memories
we cherish. They serve a cause
greater than themselves; they serve
the cause of freedom. For that, we
hold them close in our grateful hearts
and prayers as we share this beautiful
Florida evening together."
Prior to Taylor's remarks, Christie
McElroy sang the "Star Spangled
Banner", as Katie Miller played
the trumpet. Lucy Coleman Lacy
followed with "GodBless America",
a medley.

Residents want


changes made to


gas pipeline route


By John MAyers
The Sabal Trail Transmission
Company held a landowner
informational meeting on Tuesday,
Oct. 8, in the Bell High School
cafeteria.
Andrea Grover, of Spectra Energy,
reported that 100 community
members from Gilchrist and
Suwannee counties attended the
meeting. The public was anticipating
a sit-down, lecture style meeting, but
instead were met with a question and
answer style meeting with the Sable
Trail Transmission Company's public
relations team hearing concerns. The
landowners and residents, affected
by the proposed gas line, attending
the meeting were asked to sign in
when they walked into the cafeteria
and they were given information
about natural gas pipelines and the
natural gas industry. A series of
proposed maps with colored lines
leading south through Gilchrist


County were on display, identifying
the different areas of the county
where the proposed pipeline is
presently identified to be constructed.
Many residents and property owners
from out of the county asked the
representatives if the proposed
pipeline construction route could
be altered to miss large residential
areas, like Suwannee Shores Estates,
a private residential subdivision
in northeast Gilchrist County. The
Sabal Trail representative indicated
to the people of Gilchrist County that
the energy company is still receiving
information, and a decision on the
final construction route has not been
made.
The residents and property
owners of Suwannee Shores Estates
subdivision spoke out against the
proposed route. They explained that
the gas pipeline is presently identified

"The love of a family is life's greatest
blessing"
The Ayers family had a wonderful
time at Allie Claire and Whitt's birth-
day party over the weekend. Their
birthdays are just a week apart so' a
joint birthday celebration works out
well.
For the past two years, Allie Claire
has put in for a Duck Dynasty birth-
day party. When she turned 4, she
requested a Duck Dynasty/princess
party, but her momma had her choose
one or the other and she opted for the
dress up princess party.
But, Allie was not to be put off for
long. After her 4th birthday party, Al-
lie Claire started asking for a Duck
Dynasty party for her next birthday,
Sso Allie's 5th and Whitt's 2nd birth-
day party was a Duck Dynasty party.
In the months leading up to the par-
ty Allie was so excited that she told
bur family who we should come to
her party as. John was assigned Un-
cle Si and Allie insisted that he grow
a beard. Uncle J. was told he would
be Jase and Allie asked him to also
grow a beard for her party. So John,
aka Pap, and Uncle J. got busy grow-
ing their beards. Only Allie could talk
those two into that.
I was lucky Allie Claire asked me'
to come to the party as Miss Kay. Al-
lie said, "MeMe you and Miss Kay
both like to cook so you can be Miss
Kay." About a month ago we were
in a fabric store and Allie picked out
apron fabric. She said, "Oh, MeMe
this is perfect fabric for a Miss Kay
apron for my party!"
The boys in the family are not the
only ones she has wrapped.
Who knew grandmotherhood
would be the best thing ever?
Needless to say the party was a big
hit with all the kids. It seems that they
all watch Duck Dynasty on TV and

love it. Cousin Gus was especially
cute with his Willie headband and his
little sister Mattie came in a pink one-
sie with a duck silhouette and "Hey
Jack, That's A Fact" printed on the
front. She also sported a hair band
with two camo rosettes in the center,
it was too cute.
Carrie, as usual had lots of fun
things for the children to do, such
as taking a hayride down to a pond
where they hunted for beaver. You
name it, she thought of it, right down
to cupcakes topped with little mallard
ducks.
I was amazed' that palmetto fans,
cattails, camo fabric, Spanish moss
and old duck decoys could look so
good.
I tell you, these young mothers sure
know how to throw some wonderful
parties. So creative and a whole lot
of fun. Everyone was Happy, Happy,
Happy.

This recipe came from one of my
longtime Cedar Key friends, Landa
Allen.
These muffins are soooo good
you can't eat just one. The topping
is much like sticky buns or a mon-
key bread topping. The. brown sugar
and butter cook into a caramel sauce
as the muffins bake. The topping is
actually on the bottom so when you
turn the muffin tin over the caramel
pecan topping comes out on top like
a pineapple upside down cake.








Topping
1 3/4- cups chopped pecans
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon light
corn syrup
Toast the pecans in the oven for about
8 minutes on 325, set aside. Melt the
butter and add the brown sugar, va-
nilla and corn syrup. Whisk until all
the ingredients are well mixed.
Grease muffin tins with butter. You
will need two 12-muffin cup tins as
the recipe makes 24.
Place about 1 teaspoon of butter
mixture in bottom of each muffin
cup. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of toasted
chopped pecans in each muffin cup.
Pumpkin Muffin Batter
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups cooked pumpkin or 1 15-
ounce can pumpkin
1/2 cup oil, canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup melted butter
2/3 cup milk
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
SPreheat oven to 350*. Sift flour and
measure. Then add brown sugar,
granulated sugar, pumpkin pie spice,
baking soda and salt, stir well.
In another bowl mix the pumpkin, oil,
butter, milk, eggs and vanilla. Whisk
together until all is blended well.
Pour the pumpkin mixture into the
flour mixture and stir until the ingre-
dients just come together do not over
mix. Spoon the batter into the muffin
tin cups, filling each cup about three -
quarters full. Bake for 25 to 3Q min-
utes until the muffins are done. Turn=
the muffins out on wire rack. Let cool
for about 5 minutes before serving.
Note: Some of the topping may
be left in the bottom of some muffin
cups. Spoon out any left over pecan
topping onto the muffins.

Now and


Then
By Carrie A. Mizell
Not long ago my little girl came
home from school feeling defeated
because the other little girls didn't
want to play with her on the play-
ground.
As she told me the story, I could
tell she was holding back tears and
my momma bear instincts kicked in.
My initial thoughts were, who are
these girls? And why would they be
mean to Allie Claire? She's a sweet-
heart (most of the time). '
SI beat down the urge to call Uip the
little 'girls' mommas and demand
some sort of satisfaction. As a Chris-
tian, I try to always keep my witness
in mind, though I've found that it's
tough sometimes, especially when
it comes t6 my children. I want to
protect them from heartache. I want
them to know they are loved, and that
they are special and in my eyes they
will always be winners.
But the reality of life is, they won't
always be the smartest kid in the
class, the most popular, or the kid
picked senior class president.
I used -that miserable day in Allie
Claire's little life to explain that life
is hard, but what's important is main-
taining a strong character. I told Allie
Claire that God has a plan for her life
and it's not always going to include
playing with the other girls, or be-
ing chosen line leader. The important
thing is how she handles those mo-
ments of defeat. Will she hold her
head high and walk off with grace
in hopes of finding 'other kids to play
with on the playground, or just sit
down and cry? Or worse still, throw
a tantrum the likes of which her play-
school has never seen?
I pray that. I am raising a child
who at the end of the day will always
choose to exercise good character
and sportsmanship.
On Tuesday I was reminded of this
teachable moment with Allie Claire
when I heard that Robert Roux decid-
ed to continue the appeals process in
his civil lawsuit against Sheriff Bob-
by Schultz, Supervisor of Elections
Connie- Sanchez, and the Gilchrist
County Canvassing Board.
You may recall that Circuit Judge
Toby Monaco dismissed the lawsuit
on January 3, 2013. Since that time,
the case has been working its way
through appeals and now apparently
will be reviewed by the Supreme
Court.
Gilchrist County Clerk Todd New-
ton told me on Tuesday that it has
cost the taxpayers of Gilchrist Coun-
ty $3,710 to date.
Not only is this lawsuit getting in
our pocketbooks, it's also hurting our
county as a whole. It's dividing fami-
lies and severing friendships and I
can't help thinking, to what end?
Robert Roux, I have absolutely
nothing against you personally, and
I understand that you really have
nothing to loose in continuing this
fight and from what I understand fil-
ing fees are cheap, but couldn't you
just run for sheriff again in 2016 if
you want the job so badly? Why not
let this lawsuit die once and for all
and start working on a campagin for
2016? If you win, so be it and if you
lose, shake hands with the winner
and go to the house, understanding
that's just life.


Heads up, Neighbors
As the citizens of Suwannee
County were kept "in the dark" for
a long period of time regarding the
catalyst site in our county's northwest
comer, it is assumed that surrounding
counties may also be unaware of
what is going to be affecting their
health and quality of life, if current
proposals are realized.
The company seeking to locate
to this site, is a startup company,
Integrated Waste Management
Systems (IWMS), a medical, waste
incinerating facility. What exactly
are the by-products of such a facility
that bums body parts, plastic syringes,
IV bags and tubes, operating room
refuse, chemotherapy residue, and
all other contaminants in those red
bags found in hospitals, labs, doctors'
offices and abortion clinics?
If you do the research, you will
quickly find that these incinerators
do not destroy these contaminated
wastes, but merely reduce the
volume and emit a wide array of
toxic and carcinogenic chemicals,
including toxic heavy metals
(such as lead, cadmium, mercury,
chromium and arsenic),- dangerous
organic compounds (such as dioxins
and PCB's), acid and acid forming
compounds (such as nitrogen oxides
and sulfur dioxide), and carbon
monoxide. Where do these toxins
go?' The 80 to 100 foot smoke stacks
broadcast some of these pollutants
in the form of stack gases, high
into the atmosphere where they are
dispersed over a wide area. It seems
the greatest concentration is within
20 to 60 miles from the site, but they
can be broadcast over hundreds or
thousands of miles depending on
the prevailing winds. They become
"migratory contaminants" and can
be carried by air, water, oceans, and
streams. They can blanket our farms,
crpps, homes, lakes, streams, rivers,
soil and the nano particles can be
inhaled into our bodies and those of
our children, livestock, wildlife, and
pets. This is only part of the pollution

problem, as there are also, in addition
to stack gases, bottom ash, fly ash
and the effluent of pollution control
devices.
An average incinerator bums 30
tons of waste per day, and four are
proposed for this site. They will
be receiving thousands of truck-
loads of waste annually. They ,will
be coming from a 500 mile radius
to this site, through your county, on
your roads and highways! According
to the US Environmental Protection
Authority: "Fugitive emissions and
accidental spills may release as
much or even more toxic material
into the environment than direct
emissions' from incomplete waste
incinerations!" There is also the risk
of catastrophic waste releases in fires
and explosions as well.
Increased cancer rates, respiratory
ailments, reproductive abnormalities
and other health effects are noted
among people living near some
waste-burning facilities, .-according
to scientific studies, surveys by
community groups and local
physicians.
Cancer, birth defects, reproductive
dysfunction, neurological damage and
other health effects are also known to
occur at very low exposures to many
of the metals and other pollutants
released by these waste-burning
facilities.
Many states in the United
States have banned these types of
incinerators due to the known health
and environmental risk. Only 33
remain in the US today. I guess we
must ask the state of Florida and
Suwannee County exactly what is the
price of our health worth to them?
Do a few jobs and taxable income for
the county outweigh the long term
desecration of our beautiful county,
neighboring counties, and the health,
welfare and peace of mind of the
families of Florida? That certainly
seems a huge price to pay!!
Your neighbor in good faith,
Donna Ellis,
Suwannee County resident

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


ByAi
"'Don't call me
Naomi,' she told them.
'Call me Mara, because
the Almighty has made
my life very bitter. I
went away full, but the
Lord has brought me
back empty. Why call
me Naomi? The Lord
has afflicted me; ,.the
Almighty has brought
misfortune upon me.'
So.- Naomi"
returned from Moab
accompanied by Ruth the Moabitess,
her daughter-in-law, arriving in
Bethlehem as the barley harvest was
beginning." (Ruth 1:20-22)
Before we let Ruth and Naomi
unpack in Bethlehem, let's get one
LIast lesson from the details we find at
the end of chapter one. Last week we
'compiled a checklist from Naomi's
example in order to identify any
bitterness that might be present in our
own lives. On the other 'side of that
coin, let's consider what it might be
like to be in Ruth's shoes, or sandals.
What if life has called us to live with,
Iwork with, or walk along side of
'someone who could rightly be called
"bitter?" ,
4, While bitterness can be difficult to
Recognize in ourselves, it will usually
4be obvious in someone else, but we
|may not know how to respond in a
healthy way. Let's learn a few things
rom Ruth and Naomi:
t -Expect a bitter person to push you
away. (vs. 11, 15) Remember that
bintterness causes us to believe that
iwe have it worse than anyone else,
and a bitter person will often push
3ou away because they are convinced
.tbat you don't understand their right
.to be bitter. Notice that Ruth was firm,
but kind with Naomi in her response.
.'Do not uirge me to leave you or to
Hurn back'from you. Where you go, I
.will go... "(vs. 16)
S* Expose yourself to plenty of


ylf/attes
igie Land

other people. (vs. 16)
"Your people will be
my people..." When
dealing with "bitter"
in a close relationship,
make sure that you
never isolate yourself
with them. We need
to expose ourselves
to other healthy
relationships in border
to keep bitterness
from infecting us, it
is quite contagious.
What better reason to become bitter
than havinglto deal with someone
who isbitter? After some time apart,
you will have much more to give, and
'a better attitude in which to give it!
Let God be God. (vs 16) "Your
God will be my God." The absolute
worse thing that we can do for a bitter
person is to decide that we can fix
Stem! We can't be nice enough, do
enough, or say enough. Only God can
heal bitterness. Period. Notice that
after Naomi spews her bitterness on
the Bethlehem welcoming committee
in verses 20-21., the Bible doesn't
record a single word from Ruth. She
didn't apologize for her or make
excuses, nor did she chastise Naomi
for her wores. Just let God work, be
firm when needed, be encouraging
when needed, and then just be quiet.
In my opinion, the most encouraging
thing in chapter one is found at the
end of verse 22. Naomi and Ruth
arrived "in Bethlehem as the barley
harvest was beginning." Dealing with
a bitter person can seem endless, and
often hopeless, especially if we try to
be their salvation. After leaving town
because of a famine, returning home
at the beginning of the barley harvest
was perfect timing, God's timing.
When we let God work in their lives,
and ours, we can know that He is up
to producing a harvest in and through
us, and it will be exactly what is
needed.


YOU ARE APPRECIATED!

S Thanks, to each of you... for your willingness
to serve God, and the people of our community.

The Bell Bulldogs dominated the

Thomas led the Bulldogs as he scored
three times in the first half.
The Bulldogs held a 48-7 lead at
halftime. In the second half the teams
agreed to play with a running clock-
to speed up this game. The Bulldogs
rested their starters in the third andl ..
fourth periods as the younger players
experienced the action.

One resident explained that it would
take out the community's private
park and boat ramp on the Santa
Fe River. Many other concerned
property owners along the Santa
FeRiver don't want the gas line to
tunnel under the natural waterway.
They are concerned that the digging
and tunneling for the construction
will disrupt the natural limestone bed
that allows the natural spring water to
pass through the Florida aquifer.
The gas line is currently proposed
to come into Gilchrist County from
the northeast, crossing the Santa Fe
River from the Columbia County
area. The line is laid out to go east

Residents and property owners in
northeast Gilchrist County asked the
Sabal Trail Transmission company if
the line could be moved back west
and stay out of the heavier populated
residential areas on the east side of
the county. Gilchrist County residents
,living in the Spring Ridge community
would. like for the gas pipeline to run
south into the Waccasassa Flats where
very little residential development

Lady Bulldogs

triumph over

Mayo and

Hilliard for big

wins
Submitted
Back on September 3, 2013, the
Lady Bulldog varsity volleyball
traveled to Mayo for a highly
anticipated early season matchup
with the Lady Hornets.
The result, a 3 set loss to the
two-time state champions. Tuesday
night found the rematch back in
Bell with that loss still fresh on
the Lady Bulldogs mind. The first
set went to the Hornets as Bell fell
behind, battled and came back but
came up short, losing 25-22. The
second set was all Hornets as the
Bulldogs struggled to find a way to
score points before losing 25-14. In
between the second and third set
Coach Lisa Barry gathered her team
up and challenged them as some
times a coach has to, in order to fire
their team up. The result, 3 straight
set wins. In set 3 the Bulldogs jumped
out in front with a 5-1 lead and never
looked back, winning 25-18. Set
4 was all Bulldogs as they went on
the offensive and really attacked the
Hornets winning 25-14.

Melvin Adams
Offensive Player of the Week

By John M Ayers.
The Trenton Tigers were on their
game Friday night as their defense
kept things close and the offense
scored twice in the fourth quarter
to defeat the 3rd ranked Chiefland
Indians, 17-14, Friday night in The
Jungle.
This game was an all out battle
from the very first kick-off to the last
play from scrimmage. The Tigers
recovered a fumble and picked off an
Indian pass in the first half to stall the
Indians' offense. The Tigers took the
lead in the second period as they faced
a 4th and 13 from inside the 20-yard
line. Marcus Mannerstedt kicked the
33-yard field goal with time running
out in the second period.
The Indians came right back on
their next offensive possession as
Alfonse Timmons scored on a 4 yard
run to take a 7-3 lead. The Indians
score was set up by a halfback pass
to Patterson to put the Indians inside
the red zone.
The crowd was made aware of the


With momentum on their side the
Bulldogs went into set 5 pumped up
and ready to seal the win and did so
with a 15-8 victory. The Bulldogs
were led by Shelbie Hutto 18 kills,
10 service points; Ashton Matthews
11 kills, 5 blocks, 11 service
points; Baylee Rolling 23 assists,.
8 kills, 8 service points; Katarina
Kresovic 20 digs; Raychel Thomas
19 assists, 6 service points.
On Thursday night, Oct. 10, the
Lady Bulldogs hosted the Hilliard
Flashes for a double header. Going
into the match both teams were
undefeated in district play. This
turned into quite a baffle that started
at 5 and ended at 9:30. In the first set
the Bulldogs started out slow and fell
behind but battled back only to drop
the set 25-21. In the second and third
sets the Bulldogs got settled down

fight against Breast Cancer as the
THS Cheerleaders proudly sported
the, "We Cheer for a Cure", theme
by wearing black and pink uniforms..
The THS Band had pink signs
posting their theme, "Band together
for a Cure" along the Tigers' side of
the field. The pink, Breast Cancer
awareness ribbon was painted on the
field to make the estimated 3500 fans
attending this game aware that we all
are working together to fight for a
cure for this disease.
In the second half these two teams
battled in the trenches until midway
in the final period when the Tigers'
defense stopped the Indians on a
4th and 1 near mid-field. Trenton's
Steven Smith led the Tigers on an
offensive drive that pushed the
Indians down deep in the red zone.
Trenton's Jacquez Powell gave the
Tigers the momentum as he busted
through for a 4-yard touchdown run
with 9:43 left in the game to take a
10-7 lead.
The Indians executed another


and won 25-14, 25-18. The fourth
set again was a battle as the Flashes
did not go down easy but again the
Bulldogs came but on top 25-22 to
win game 1. Game 2 got started with
the Bulldogs attacking Hilliard and
