The search began after Trenton Police Chief Jim Raven gave his Citys search for a police chief continues 2013. City Manager Taylor Brown reported last week that the city has received nine applications for the police chief position. After a lengthy discussion between the city commissioners on how to handle the interview process, Commissioner Randy Rutter suggested that the city manager bring back his top choice for the board to review. City Attorney David Lang reminded commissioners that the city charter requires the city commissioners hire the police chief. Commissioner Rutter explained that he was not comfortable with the interview process the last time a police chief was hired. Commissioner Tim Kinsey stated that he would like to be involved with the interview process or at the very least have a chance to look over the applications. Mayor Glen Thigpen stated that they needed to set a time certain to stop accepting applications for the position after the city manager stated that at this time the application process did not have a deadline. A motion was made by Commissioner Rutter to let the city manager choose one person to bring back to the board as his recommendation for Trenton police chief. Commissioner Randy Rutter and Commissioner Marcia Hellams voted in favor of the motion while Commissioner Tim Kinsey and Mayor Glen Thigpen voted against the motion, therefore the motion failed. City Manager Taylor Brown said that he felt the instability of the position had cut down on the number of applicants for the position. At one point during the last year the commissioners talked about doing away with the City of Trenton Police Department. A vote was taken on a motion which stated that all the commissioners would review all the applications for the police chief position, the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion. street at this time, came before the commissioners to request that they suggested that after a new chief was be hired. After some discussion it not had enough training to be on his own while on duty. It will, in fact, be will be eligible to ride alone while on duty. Sheriff Bobby Schultz and several Sheriff Schultz came forward to address the City Commissioners and volunteered to help in any way he could. The sheriff explained that he has a reserve program that were completely trained and ready to patrol Trenton and could start immediately. He suggested that the together to provide a competent police force until a permanent city police chief can be found. The sheriff said that he would be willing to step in as temporary chief and oversee such things as scheduling, evidence, and generally run the Trenton Police police chief. Schultz suggested that a contract be worked out where the City reserve force. He said that if he was in charge of the scheduling, he could provide more and better coverage for the citizens of Trenton. We stand ready to do what we can to help, Sheriff Schultz said. The mayor thanked the sheriff for his generous offer and said that the City Commissioners would discuss the matter further at their December 10 meeting.

Est 1978 Chiefland, FL 352.493.0640 parduelandsurveying.com Have you started your Christmas card list? I guess we had all better get started, with Christmas just three weeks away. The way the holidays fall this year it seems like we havent put the turkey away before we need to be stringing lights on the trees. This year, when I sit down to address our Christmas cards, I plan to make up my list a little differently than usual. Sure there will be the usual longtime friends and family that we are very blessed to have, but this year I plan to look back a bit and send cards to people who have made a difference in our life or the lives of our children. By the time you have lived for 56 years there are a lot of people who have helped shape your life for the better. My list will begin with the teacher which most impacted me in high school, bless her heart, I was not much of a student but somehow she always made me feel important and that I could accomplish a lot if I tried hard enough. I plan to add the preacher who baptized our children to my Christmas card list. Although he and his wife no longer live here, I want them to know how important they are to our family, because if you are a Christian, there really is not a more important time in your life than when your children are saved. Im thinking well send a card to our favorite Sunday school teacher from years ago when we were a young married couple in our twenties. She put hours into each weeks lesson and made the Bible so interesting, we were truly blessed to have Mrs. us back when we were just beginning to decide what path our lives would take. Several cards will go out to people who Ive worked beside in the past because even though I dont see them often, they mean a great deal to me. Their kindness and friendship have made my life so much sweeter. You know, the kind of people who make you smile when you think of them. So this year when you are planning your list, I would like to suggest that you look back a ways and remember those who have helped you along the way. You might have a special aunt who always remembers to send you a birthday card or a good friend from high school that you havent seen for years. You might want to hand a card to the sweet lady at the grocery store who always greets you with a smile every time you check out. Im pretty sure if we just took a little more time we could round out our list this year by including, not only our current friends, but those from the past who have impacted our lives. Out of sight does not have to mean out of mind. ----easy to make, in fact they are the easiest dessert Ive made in a long ingredients and you dont even have would also make a wonderful gift packaged up in a Christmas tin or on a Christmas plate. Pecan Pie 1 cup light brown sugar 1 cup chopped pecans 2 large eggs, beaten 2/3 cup salted butter, melted 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl combine the before measuring), and pecans, then set aside. Whisk eggs until lightly beaten, then add butter and vanilla and whisk all until incorporated. Stir 20 to 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out pan and place on wire rack to cool. I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone that was involved in game this past Friday night. This game was North Florida high school over 3,500 people, a lot of planning and preparation made the event a memorable one. I would especially like to thank Sheriff Bobby Schultz and the Gilchrist County Sheriffs from the tri-county area to make sure our players, students and fans were safe during and after this game. Also, to the Trenton High School administration, coaches and district staff who assisted in getting the stadium ready for this event. It is great to live in a community where we can all work together, take pride in our schools and support our students. Good luck Tigers this Friday night. I know you will represent Gilchrist County well.

Ayers In other news, Kyle Stone represented the Trenton Tiger football team and asked the Commission to support the Tigers by once again donating funds to help cover expenses related to playing in the state championship game. Commissioner Kenrick Thomas made a motion to give the Tigers $2,000 to support them in their championship endeavor. Commissioner Sharon Langford gave a second to the motion in support of this action. Commissioner John Rance Thomas asked Mrs. Stone, how much the Gilchrist County School Board gave to the Tigers in their championship endeavor. Stone reported the school district gave $200 in 2012 when the team participated in the 2012 1A title game. Commissioners responsibility to fund student trips? Commissioner Thomas asked. Thomas further explained that he didnt feel it was the responsibility of the Gilchrist County Commission to use funds from the general fund reserve to supplement the needs of student trips for school activities. Board should revise their budget and identify a line item to fund travel needs for students transportation, Thomas explained. The county commissioner said he has always supported the students individually and as a parent he will continue to do so, but for the Gilchrist County Commission to take reserve funds for this, he thinks the Commission is going in the wrong direction with this action. Chairman D. Ray Harrison, Jr called for a decision by the board. The Commission approved the donation by a 4-1 vote with Commissioner John Rance Thomas voting no. County Commissioners vote 4-1 to donate to Trenton Tigers

Stay here for the night and in the morning if he wants to redeem, good; let him redeem. But if he is not willing, as surely as the Lord lives I will do it. Lie here until morning. So she lay at his feet until morning, but got up before anyone could be recognized; and he said, Dont let it be known that a woman came to the He also said, Bring me the shawl you are wearing and hold it out. When she did so, he poured into it six measures of barley and put it on her. Then he went back to town. When Ruth came to her mother-inlaw, Naomi asked, How did it go, my daughter? Then she told her everything Boaz had done for her and added, He gave me these six measures of barley, saying, Dont go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed. Then Naomi said, Wait, my happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today. (Ruth 3:12-18) The plot thickens and at this point in the story, I wish I could temporarily erase the memory of every reader who knows how the story ends. Wondering adds to the excitement and anticipation, dont you think? So for the sake of our experience, lets forget the ending for a few minutes and concentrate on the tension in these moments. In his book, Shattered Dreams, author Larry Crabb describes it like this: of their little house, warming herself returns from her night with Boaz, still wearing her prettiest dress but no longer feeling beautiful. Naomi, what shall I do? I love Boaz and I think he loves me. But he said he cant marry me until some legal problem is cleared up. Oh, Naomi, I dont know anything about all those technicalities. All I know is that I want him. I dont want anyone else. I want him. Doesnt he want me? Naomi sits quietly. She knows What does Naomi know that Ruth doesnt? Remember that Ruth was a foreigner, new to the ways of God and His people. She was, at best, vaguely familiar with Jewish law, and really only understood that she had come to Boaz and although he was kind, he still sent her home. She must have worried that he really didnt want her. However, Naomi understood what needed to take place in order to secure the best for Ruth, and so she This is often a parallel to our relationship with Jesus. For reasons we often do not understand, He life with every kind of blessing. He can, without a doubt, do what we ask, answer our prayers and meet our needs. But when it seems like He is doing nothing in the midst of our suffering, we can rest assured that He will not rest until matters are settled. As mysterious as the reasons for our suffering can sometimes be, the deeper mystery is His restrained love for us. Crabb compares it, As a mother holds her baby still so the doctor can deliver the needed injection, so your Lord is allowing you to suffer for reasons you do not know. So for those of us struggling with unanswered prayers, unmet needs and shattered dreams, we must continue to listen for His voice. We will hear Him most clearly when suffering humbles us enough to want to hear Him, more than we want to be free of the suffering Lighthouse Word Church would like to invite the community to our special Christmas Program, on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 10:30 a.m., featuring Christmas Carols and special vocals.
