Mizell Not only did he lead a team of Tigers to a state championship title in 2013, but now Gilchrist County native Todd Bryant has received after his family. Trenton High Schools baseball Field during a pregame dedication ceremony on Friday evening. Proposed by Reese Rowland, the re-naming of Trentons baseball committee be formed. Committee members W.W. Welch, Marjorie Henley, Reese Rowland, Gary Rexroat, Rob Rankin and Cloud Haley considered the merits of the proposal before recommending the Gilchrist County School Board proceed with the name change. The school board voted unanimously on December 10, 2013 to approve the change, so that Trentons baseball Bryant Field. This is a very special place to me, Todd Bryant said on Friday, now bears his last name. I have been coming here since it was built. Its a part of me. I didnt wear a coat or tie tonight because thats not who we are, were Tigers, we wear orange and black. By Carrie A. Mizell A convicted sex offender who moved to Gilchrist County and then molested his 12-year-old nephew was sentenced to 45 years in prison last week for his crimes. County Judge Sheree H. Lancaster Sex oender sentenced to 45 years handed down a maximum sentence for Jeffery John Allen, 49. A plea of no contest was entered by Allen, who faced three counts of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation on a person under 16, a second degree felony. Judge Lancaster sentenced Allen to 15 years per count. Allen was also sentenced to 60 days in the Gilchrist County Jail on two counts of Unnatu ral and Lascivious Acts, a second de gree misdemeanor. Allen served from March 1994 to December 1997 in a state prison for Lewd and Lascivious charges he was convicted of in Pasco County. After his release, Allen moved to Gilchrist County to live with his sis ter. He was arrested on August 23, 2013 and later admitted to investiga tors that his nephews accusations of molestation were true. Because Allens crimes in Gilchrist County are his second offense, his status has been changed from a reg istered sexual offender to a sexual predator. Trenton High School baseball eld re-named to honor Bryant family Bryant not only excelled in athletics at Trenton High School, where he played baseball under George Anderson and Perry Brown, but also academically, he was valedictorian of his senior class. After graduating from THS in 1984, Bryant went on to play college baseball at the University of North Florida. There, he was coached by Dusty Rhodes and Brad Weitzel. Bryant was a member of the inaugural team for University of North Florida baseball. The team years of the program, setting all kinds of records and later team members, including Bryant, were inducted into the colleges Hall of Fame. I graduated from college and had opportunities to go away to work for people who made big promises and offered lots of glitter, Bryant said. But I wanted to settle down in Gilchrist County, raise a family, and try to help some kids learn the game of baseball just a little bit better than I knew it growing up. After graduating from college and returning home, Reese Rowland gave Bryant a job at Nature Coast Insurance, where he has worked for the last 23 years. When he is not working as a successful businessman, Bryant is giving back to his high school alma mater and the community he calls home. Bryant has given of his many young people he has coached over the years. Not only has Bryant imparted his knowledge of the game, but he has also taught discipline, hard work and commitment. Todd has represented himself, his family, his school, and his community to the utmost degree, Gary Rexroat stated in remarks he had written out for the occasion. He and his family have certainly made our community a better place to live. The Bryant family, Paul and Susan Bryant, Thomas and Hazel Bryant, Dale Bryant Anderson and her husband George, were all honored along with Todd Bryant, and his wife Mae, for the contributions they have made and continue to make in the community. While standing near the pitchers Bryant family, Todd said, We are very humbled and thankful for this recognition. We are most thankful to God to live in a country and community that lets us play baseball and watch our kids grow up in peace. We want to thank the nominating committee, the school board, the administration and all those who have been a part of this. There are a lot of this program over the years and we want to thank each of them for their contributions. Bryant went on to thank the fans, dedication ceremony and the baseball game that followed, for supporting the youth. This is much more than I ever dreamed of, Bryant said. I will always be a Tiger. As the ceremony came to a close and the Bryant family walked off both teams jogged out. With one arm around his wife, Bryant turned back base and said, Go get em Tigers! By John M Ayers Gilchrist County resident Grady Jones has asked the Gilchrist County Commision to name the arena on US 129 in honor of J. M. Murph Everett. Jones, who served on a committee to have the facility built in 2000, addressed the Commission during their February 3 meeting. He told the commissioners that the Gilchrist County Agriculture Complex, as the facility currently goes by, should have the arena named after the longtime agriculture teacher. It was because of Mr. Everetts hard work and his interest in working for the youth of our county that this facility is a reality today, Jones said. Everett died on January 10, 2011 at the age of 80. A Wilcox native, Everett was a proud veteran, who taught agriculture in Lafayette and Gilchrist county schools from 1956 to 1992. He also served on the Gilchrist County School Board from 1996 to 2004. Everett was known to have a huge heart for the community, having served on numerous boards and foundations. After hearing Jones speak, Commissioner John Rance Thomas asked the county attorney, David M. Lang, if the arena could be named in Citizen wants arena named in honor of Murph Everett honor of Everett. Lang explained to the commission that since the issue was not an agenda item, the board could not act on the name change during the February 3 meeting. Lang advised the Commission to wait until it had been advertised on the next meeting agenda to act. Ultimately, the Commission scheduled the arena discussion item for the February 20, 2014 meeting. The discussion is scheduled to begin at 4:45 p.m. Jones told the board that there will be several members of the original committee in attendance at the February 20 meeting. By John M. Ayers A Bronson woman died in a single vehicle accident on County Road 344 early Sunday morning. Barbara Sue Strickland, 36, was traveling south on County Road 334 in Levy County when she lost control of the 2000 GMC Sierra truck she was driving. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Strickland failed to negotiate a left curve at 12:40 a.m. Her vehicle left the roadway on the right shoulder. Strickland reportedly over-corrected while attempting to re-enter the highway. The two passengers in the truck were ejected and received minor injuries, reported Corporal Dillon of the Florida Highway Patrol. The truck rotated in a counter clockwise direction while crossing the roadway, Trooper Dillon stated. As the vehicle entered the east shoulder of the highway, it began to overturn. The truck landed on the east shoulder of the highway facing south. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, the three individuals involved in the wreck were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. Levy County EMS responded to the scene, and a paramedic pronounced the driver deceased. This accident is still under investigation, but excessive speed appears to have been a factor, reported Corporal Dillon of the Florida Highway Patrol. Bronson woman dies in early morning accident Eighteen-month-old Justin Edward Chewning Pierce, son of Travis Pierce and Courtney Chewning, drowned on Sunday evening while at the home of family members in Old Town. According to the Dixie County and other family members were at the home, which is located on NE 434th Street, when the accident occurred. While the group was outside, the toddler wondered away several feet from the adults undetected. When one of them realized that he was no longer standing with them they immediately began looking for him. Justin was found lying in the bottom Efforts to resuscitate the toddler were unsuccessful. At press time, a fund was being set up to assist the family at Drummond Community Bank. Justins obituary is printed on page 7.

She is, in fact a canner, known in our family and her circle of friends for her wonderful jellies and marmalade. I guess I will always think of mom ma when I see a Mason jar, because Im sure she has put up or canned more fruits and vegetables than any one I know. My childhood memories include picking blackberries in the fence rows and down lanes on our family farm with a group of the neighborhood la dies. Momma would take home the berries and turn them into the best blackberry jelly ever smeared on a slice of bread. To this day one of her granddaughters requests she bring her many layered jelly cake to fam ily events. She has peeled more hard pears for cobblers and pear salads than I care to count. When our son, J. was in high school he would come in from school, take a pint jar of gran nys pears out of the fridge and eat the entire jar. In fact, at 85, she is still going strong and canning or putting up any vegetables or fruit she comes across. Just last week she gave me a jelly jar lade she had just put up from oranges that came off a friends tree. Momma and I visited the new JoAnn Fabrics & Crafts that just opened in Gainesville a few days ago. Imagine our surprise when we spotted a display of Mason jars and accessories that were made to en hance the old reliable jars. These Transform Mason accessories made by Ball Canning, include such items as chalkboard labels, wooden tags that are made to hang around the jar necks, ornate metal label frames and even recipe cards with a jar graphic. I pointed out the display to momma and she said, Well, now Ive seen everything. A few months ago I came across yet another helpful kitchen use for a mason jar. This one turns a pint Mason jar into a kitchen salt-shaker. First, use the Mason jar lid to trace a circle on top of your large kitchen paper salt container. Next, cut out the circle which includes the salt pouring spout. Then pour the salt into the Ma son jar and put the paper lid on top of the jar and seal it, using the jar ring. Nowadays people are using the still made in USA Ball Mason jars for much more than grandmas buttons. Ive seen recipes for layered salads, cookie mix, mini pies, and soup all made in Mason jars. There is even an ad for a Mason jar chandelier made with 10 jars hanging at different lev els and selling for $349, like momma, now Ive seen everything. The following recipe is for baked oatmeal that is baked in wide mouth one cup jelly jars. It is also good us ing half regular oats and half quick oats, I like to pour a little whipping cream over the warm oatmeal. Maple Berry Baked Oatmeal in a Jelly Jar 4 8-ounce Mason jelly jars 1 cup fresh or frozen black berries or blue berries 5 tablespoons melted butter 1/4 to 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 egg 1 tablespoon maple syrup or cane syrup 1 cup milk 1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats (Do not use instant) 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place 1/4 cup berries in bottom of each un greased jelly jar, set aside. Whisk together melted butter, sug ar, egg, syrup, and milk in bowl. Add oats, baking powder and salt whisk until all is combined well. Pour about 1/2 cup oatmeal mix over berries into jelly jars and place jars on a baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Eat while still warm, or cool until room temperature and cover with lid and ring and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Take lid and ring off and microwave until warm and you have an almost instant breakfast for a busy week. The chilled baked oatmeal will last for three to four days in the fridge Submitted Keeping track of extra medical appointments, making sure administered on time, and making sure your loved one is supported at all times are just a handful of the responsibilities added on to a caregivers to do list. This chaotic juggle of responsibilities can sometimes take a toll on a caregivers emotions and cause them to forget about themselves. Relay For Life of The Tri Counties wants to take a moment to recognize caregivers for their labor of love and the compassion they show for their loved one. Community members of the tri counties are calling all caregivers, old or young, friend or family, to come to the Gilchrist County Agricultural Complex for the annual Relay For Life of The Tri Counties event on May 2, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. It doesnt matter if your loved one is still in treatment, out of treatment for years, or lost their battle; the members of the Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society would like to honor all caregivers for their compassion and commitment. Relay is a night for celebration and remembrance, a chance for all caregivers and survivors to put their responsibilities behind them for the night and simply celebrate life. There will be a lap honoring all caregivers and survivors at the event. Caregivers will be joined by hundreds of community members, American Cancer Society staff, volunteers, and organizations to walk the night away. The night will be highlighted by an emotional luminaria ceremony paying tribute to those still battle to cancer. Caregivers can reach out to other caregivers to trade stories and helpful advice so they no longer have to suffer in silence. Caregivers will be recognized at Relay For Life Happy Birthday wishes to Amber Stoner, Heidi Templeton, Robert Thompson, and Breanna Marie Akers on February 13th; Emma Joy Smith, Travis Thompson, Vance Thompson, Verna Mae Wilson, Buddy Vickers, Chucky Williams, and Sharon Schwi eterman on February 14th; Randy Loy, J Ayers, and Brent Joyner on February 15th; Darren Mikell, Daniel Perryman, Stephanie Archer, Adam Langford, Larry Rogers, and Tyler Beckham on February 16th; Leona Harris, Pete Belanger, Ronnie Smith, and Curtis Phillips on February 17th; Lyle Horne, Sr., on February 18th; Elizabeth Douglas, Jessica Davis, and Jean Troke on February 19th.

RIVERSIDE BAPTIST CHURCH 10760 NW 5th Avenue Branford, FL 32008 Pastor Arnold OSteen Church Office: 386-935-3935 Sunday School 9:45 am Evening Worship 6:00 pm Morning Worship 11:00 am Wednesday Prayer 7:00 pm Happy Valentines Day! People all over the world will celebrate Valentines Day with many different or a special dinner at a favorite restaurant. In fact, the National Retail Federation estimates that Americans alone spent approximately 17 billion dollars last year on the Valentine holiday. Why do we go to so much trouble? According to Dr. Gary Chapman, love is an emotional need, not just another emotion. We all want to love and be loved, but often our expressions of love miss the mark! Perhaps what we most need to learn about love is how to express it in a language that our intended receiver will understand. In Chapmans book The Five Love Languages, he love: language includes words of sincere praise for efforts as well as words of affection expressing a positive thought toward someone. You are such a great friend, Your eyes are beautiful, or I know that didnt turn out like you hoped, but I am proud of how hard you tried. 2. Quality Time: giving a portion of time and your undivided attention is a powerful communicator of love to another person because our lives are so busy. This doesnt mean simply being in the same room at the same time, but has everything to do with togetherness. Make sure the other person is convinced they are the focus of your attention. 3. Receiving Gifts: gifts are visible evidence of emotional love. Perhaps this explains the billions spent on Valentines Day. The Greek word from which we get our English word gift is charis which means grace or undeserved; for no reason. The beauty of gifts is that they dont have to be fancy or expensive to be valuable. A gift says I care about you and I think you are important. That is the real treasure. 4. Acts of Service: Loving service is an internally motivated desire to give your energy for another. Just doing something for someone, especially something they want or need accomplished is a powerful way to communicate love. Like quality time, it requires a portion of our life set aside and donated for another, but acts of service also allows them to be free of a task or chore. This one is huge to me; nothing makes me feel more loved than my husband helping me get a chore crossed off the to-do list! 5. Physical Touch: There is a reason why parents are encouraged to hold and cuddle their newborns. Touching is an emotionally powerful way to communicate love. This is why we love to give and receive hugs and why we enjoy a shoulder massage or a good back scratch; touch makes us feel loved and accepted. languages sound great, every person has one or two of these that makes them feel more loved than the others, and by nature we speak that language to others. If we enjoy gifts, we will probably buy gifts for others. If we likely leave love notes and be very encouraging verbally. The problem comes when the other person doesnt speak our language, or we arent speaking theirs. We may be speaking gifts, but they want some quality time. Or they may be doing acts of service for us while we long to hear them say, I love you. We must learn to speak the language of the other person if we want them to feel loved by us. We can usually determine our own language by what we most often do for another when we want to show love to them. We can determine another persons language by asking their preference and watching what they do for others. (To learn more, check out Chapmans book, The Five Love Languages). These principles can be applied in friendships and parent-child/teenager as well as romantic relationships. What a great way to celebrate love-in the language of the recipient! Happy Heart Day! Because every heart matters! Come and join us at our Ice Cream Social and Chinese Auction, with door prizes, Sunday, Feb. 16, noon to 2 p.m., $2.00 tickets can be purchased at St. Albans Episcopal Church Parrish Hall, located 4 mi.

The Bell FFA Chapter got a generous gift this past week. Mr. Alvin Ellenburg, owner of Shadow Ridge Farm, donated a gooseneck, all aluminum, 20 foot, Four-star livestock trailer, to the Bell FFA Chapter. The value of the Bell FFA Chapter has had to borrow trailers for the past 23 or more years to move animals during tag-ins, weigh-ins, and hauling livestock to and from the market and fairs. The Bell FFA Chapter would like to thank Mr. Ellenburg for this generous donation. College of Central Florida to offer BS in Nursing The College of Central Florida plans to offer a bachelor degree in nursing beginning in August 2014 to help meet growing local and national demand for more nurses with higher degrees. CF estimates that tuition for upper division nursing courses at CF will cost $4,715, which is more than 40 percent less than a student would pay if they earned their degree at a fouryear public university such as the University of Florida. The new program will make CF part of a national movement to better educate nurses and meet the Institute of Medicines recommendation that the number of practicing nurses with baccalaureate degrees increase to 80 percent by 2020. Currently less than 40 percent of all registered nurses nationwide have a bachelors degree. The 120-credit hour degree, which will feature both classroom and online classes, is open to students who live in Marion, Citrus, and Levy counties. Interested students must attend an online information session before they can apply, and students must attain an active, unencumbered Florida RN license prior to the second semester of upper division nursing courses. Applications for the inaugural fall 2014 cohort must be submitted by April 15. For information about the programs, contact Laurie Saputo at (352) 854-2322, ext. 1586, or Nancy Cintron at (352) 854-2322, ext. 1433. Holy Spirit Infusion, 2.0 at Lighthouse Word Church Need A Sign?

PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT FOR VETERANS AGE 65 AND OLDER WITH COMBAT RELATED DISABILITY Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall receive a discount from the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related, and the veteran was honorably discharged upon separation from military service.

Our office is located in the Gilchrist County Courthouse. Damon C. Leggett Property Appraiser -Gilchrist County 112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693 (352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208 Additional Homestead Exemption How does the "double homestead" work? The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value of a property used as a primary residence by a Florida resident by $25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to $25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000). This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you have the Homestead Exemption already. "NEED A FENCE OF ANY KIND CALL DANNY ANYTIME."
