Over the last few weeks, Ive talk ed to several friends from up north who have told me that it has been ex tra cold year up north as well. Several families from up north reported that they came to Florida just to spend a week or two to get a break from the bitter northern winter. Though this might have seemed like a cold winter to a Florida native, it was nothing compared to the freez ing temperatures Florida experienced during the winter of 1894-1895. Back in the late 1800s north Florida shipped a lot of oranges north by rail. After the Great Freeze of 1894-95, which killed citrus as far south as just below Tampa, most of the grow ers left this part of the state to grow citrus elsewhere. There is a record of the temperature being 24 degrees in West Palm Beach in December of 1894. According to the recorded his tory the temperature warmed up and everything that was still alive sprout ed out and then in February of 1895 it dropped again to 27 degrees in West Palm Beach. I cant imagine it being that cold in West Palm, but years before in 1835 Jacksonville recorded a temperature of just 8 degrees. There are old 1890s newspaper accounts of large amounts of citrus being grown and shipped out of Levy County back then, but after the Great Freeze the trees were never replant ed. Citrus is very popular at our home, especially in the winter. This time of year almost anything made with good, fresh Florida citrus is really hard to beat. The following recipe is really easy to make and good. If you dont have homemade orange marmalade on the pantry shelf try the Smuckers brand its really good in this recipe. cious served at a brunch, ladies lun cheon, or shower. to the Journal they were gone before lunch!

The word resilient came to mind on Monday evening as I watched Lane Langford greet both frends and strangers at Beef O Bradys and thank them for their support. Hes a tough young man. There was no question of that in 2013, when we watched him take the championship winning season. We were proud of him then, and were just as proud of him now. When Lane was faced with paraly sis, after a Dec. 23 automobile acci dent, the Trenton High School junior continued to hold his head high and keep a warm smile on his face. You see, hes a winner, both on the Quitting is not in his vocabulary. With that resilient spirit, I have no doubt that he will go on to do great things in life, whether he ever walks again or not. Hes a winner. As proud as I was of Lane of Mon day night, I was also humbled by this community. When there is a need, people step up. That was evident by the large crowd who waited outside Beef O Bradys to get a table at the Team Up for Lane fundraiser. From ages 17 to 70, Gilchrist County showed up on Monday night and offered not only words of en cial support for expenses related to his injuries. Students and coaches from Bell, Lafayette County were also on-hand to show their support for Lane. The players and cheerleaders from the other schools proudly wore their jer seys and blended right in the sea of orange and black Tigers. Please join me in praying for Lane and his family. They need not only cial support, but also our continued prayers in the days ahead. 2014 Suwannee River Fair Kicks Off Saturday For more information on the Suwannee River Fair visit: SVP presents Annie Get Your Gun in March Annie Get Your Gun by Irving Berlin is coming to the Chief Theatre, home of The Suwannee Valley Players!

Murph Ev erett on Thursday, Feb. 20 during the Gilchrist County Commission meet ing. At the meeting, which was changed from Monday to Thursday in respect commissioners said they had heard a lot of residents speak both in favor of and against the naming of the arena in Everetts honor. Gilchrist County resident Joe Lander, who has been involved with the arena for years, presented the commissioners with information be fore asking them to consider arena naming. We are not asking to change the name of the complex, we want you to name the arena in honor of Mr. J. M. Murph Everett, Lander said. Lander told the Commission that Everett was 80-years-old when he passed away on January 10, 2011. A Gilchrist County native with roots in the Wilcox area, Everett was a very active resident for most of his life. After graduating from THS in 1949, he joined the U.S. Army and served in the Korean War, earning the Army Occupational Medal for Japan and the Korean Service Medal with four bronze stars. After completing his service in the Army, Everett contin ued his education at the University of Florida and earned a Bachelor of Sci ence degree in Agriculture. In 1986, Everett received his Master of Sci ence Degree in supervision and ad ministration from Nova University. Everett taught agriculture at Lafay ette County High School and Trenton High School from 1956 until 1992. He served on the Gilchrist County School Board from 1996 until 2004. Everett had a heart for serving the prompts workshop citizens of this county and served on many boards and foundations. He was a very active member of Bethel Baptist Church: chairman of the Bethel and Jennings Lake Cem eteries, a deacon, Sunday School di rector, church historian and Sunday School teacher. Everett had a great impact through the Future Farmers of America on the youth in Gilchrist County, Lander added. Supporters requested three signs or banners on the building identifying the arena as the J M Murph Ever ett Arena. A sign under the existing sign out by the highway on US 129. A sign over the announcers booth in the arena area. And a large sign that can be seen from US 129 at the top center of the west wall of the facility. Trip Lancaster told the Commis sion that he was the president of the Trenton Sr. FFA Chapter in 1990-91. Mr. Everett had a tremendous in better people today because of his in Erin Sanders said, I feel like in Gilchrist County that we try to teach and foster our young people to do right as they are being taught in school. Mr. Everett was in Gilchrist County to make a difference and he did. The commissioners agreed that Everett was a good man and reiter ated that they had heard from citizens both for and against the arena nam ing. Mr. Murph Everett was a good man, said Commissioner Todd Gray. I dont think if Mr. Everett were here today that he would be in favor of changing policy to name a county facility in honor of someone. Commissioner John Rance Thom as explained that Everett was a men tor, who taught agriculture at Trenton while he was teaching agriculture at Branford. Thomas went on to say that the agriculture complex and the arena are one in the same. I am in favor of honoring Mr. Ev erett, but not naming a facility after an individual, Thomas said. Commission Chairman D. Ray Harrison, Jr. pointed out that the City of Trenton currently has a Hall of Fame to honor outstanding residents for their contributions to the commu nity. He asked the capacity crowd if they were in favor of having a Hall of Fame in Gilchrist County to honor individuals for their service to the community. No comment was made by the public. The Commission took no action on the request to name the arena. They did agree to have a workshop during the March 3 meeting at 3:30 p.m. to review policy involving honoring in dividuals in Gilchrist County. Poll of the Week Go to to vote on this weeks poll question: Are you in favor of the County Commissioners naming the arena at the Agriculture Complex after J.M. Murph Everett?

GILCHRIST COUNTY LIBRARY CLOSING The Gilchrist County Public Library will be closed on Friday, Mar. 7 for the Three Rivers Regional Library annual staff meeting in Mayo. We will reopen on Monday, Mar. 10 from 9:00 am 7:00 pm. As we end the month of February and our focus on Valentines month, I wonder if you have ever thought how spouse? I mean, wouldnt we be the logical one to do that since we have a running list of all that is wrong with them? Since we are all prone to try this, you (like me) have probably dis covered that changing our spouse is a lot like spitting in the wind: it doesnt work, and it can get real messy! If we stop to think about it, we are so limited in our own ability to produce lasting change in ourselves, 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 power. It is critical for us to understand that we have no power over the attitudes and actions of our spouse. We cannot make them more mature or responsible. We also cannot change their character or stop their bad habits, no matter how obvi ous it is to us that they need to. What we do have is the power to ducing an effect without force or a things that we often do to try and get our spouse to change: repeat our selves over and over (better known as nagging), criticize, scream and yell, bully, threaten, withdraw and give the silent treatment. Would someone doing these things make you want to listen and cooperate? Me neither. We all are more likely to respond prove of our choices or behavior. Instead we can draw a boundary by causing problems in our relationship. Is there some way I can help you? I love you, but if this behavior contin the problem and to understand the consequences if they continue their irresponsible behavior. This may mean not being included certain ac tivities or a distancing in the relation ships. It also gives the freedom to choose to change the behavior with the relationship. The problem is that we spend so much time and effort trying to change our spouse in ways that hurt our in lose what we did have power over to start with. The most important part of the boundary of power is gaining wisdom, so that we dont spend time and energy where we have no power Mt.

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. By Ashley Jones Last week marked the celebration of an important organization in our agricultural community: Future Farmers of America or FFA. The high school and middle school were busy celebrating the organization that prepares our students to become tomorrows agricultural leaders. Bell Elementary was proud to join in the festivities and teach our students about the importance of the farmer. The weeks events included farm themed dress-up days, a canned food Future Farmers of Bell Elementary School drive, FFA visitors on the school news, and much more. Krystal Philman Holley, 83 Farms, even brought tractors to campus, to let our students explore these mechanical wonders in real life! Some classes took the opportunity to work on math skills measuring the enormous crop sprayer. A petting zoo was planned, but had to be cancelled due to inclement weather. Thanks go to Sue Hurst and Sharla Smith for coordinating the petting zoo. This week is a favorite at BES. The students truly enjoy learning about crops, farm animals, and the hardworking farmer. While we live in an agricultural community, not all students get to witness the wonders of farm life. This gives us the perfect opportunity to teach them where their food comes from. This prompted many classes to write thank you notes to local farmers. BES would like to thank Kaye Rolling and Faye Smith for coordinating the events at our school. The students will not likely soon forget the fun and learning that happened during this years national FFA Week.

By Geneva Cornwell Thinking deeply, we stand in awe of the abundance of resources we have in our wonderful county, state, and nation. And just think of the personal resources we have, such as relationships, opportunities, and ideas, all of which give us full potential! Our present character study is resourcefulness. This quality recognizes the true value of what others overlook or discard. Resourcefulness recognizes the potential within available resources to practical use. So, then, how can the character trait of resourcefulness, be demonstrated? The following should be helpful: 1) Resourcefulness is starting with an available object or idea and discerning its value, or starting with 2) Resourcefulness assists people in seeing how ideas develop for one use could also be used in other areas; 3) it takes training to recognize value others overlook; 4) look for ways to reuse, repair, and donate beyond traditionally recyclable items; 5) each individual is his/ her most important resource, with personal skills, experiences, and talents to be exercised. where an individual can count their personal resources. 1) Time: learning to make good use of each 24 hours; 2) Relationships are among the most valuable resources a person can develop; 3) Resourcefulness is making full use of ones intellectual capacity; 4) Words: building ones vocabulary can equip a person with a valuable verbal resource to draw upon for productive communication; 5) Strong character equips a person with rich resources. Resourcefulness is a fundamental quality behind so many things. Resourcefulness stands in opposition to wastefulness. A resourceful person brings out new usefulness. Resourcefulness is critical to personal success. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, Do what you can, with what you have, where are you. Character Calling!
