Last year, Woodin added a little pulled pork to her entry and placed third, the year before she won second. I told my husband if I won this year, it would be the start of a great birthday, Woodin said. Sure enough, just one day before her birthday, Woodins chili, dubbed Meat the Winner was unanimously chosen #1 by judges Sharon Langford, Michael McElroy and Robert Willis. A great big smile spread across Woodins face as Sheriff Bobby Schultz presented her with a trophy and $50. With red, hot chili pepper beads around their necks, and with clipboards and bottled waters in hand, the judges set about sampling all 20 entries, just after 11 a.m. color and thickness. The chili ranged in style from traditional to gourmet varieties. Some featured multiple meats, like the EnticN BisN or Chili of the Sea while other entries offered a little heat, prompting the judges to uncap their waters. They were all as different as night and day, explained judge Michael McElroy. The judges selected Julie Thomas white chicken chili, named The Bomb Digity Chili Most Unique. Thomas was awarded a trophy and $50, which she donated back to the Sheriffs Relay For Life team. After the judging and the winners of the Chili Cook Off were announced, the door was thrown open to the public. At a cost of $5, citizens enjoyed a cup of chili with all the Kelly Danaher won the 50/50 drawing and took home $215.

GILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOSTERS Dear Gilchrist County Fair Exhibitor & Parents: In the past, Gilchrist County Fair Boosters have tried extremely hard to cover each and every child down at the Suwannee River Fair on the day of the sale. Due to the current economic conditions, we are asking for your help and support to ensure no child is left standing in the sale ring hearing RESALE. We are diligently soliciting any and all funds available through our local businesses and generous residents of Gilchrist County. Please see the following breakdown for this years show: Gilchrist Exhibitors Feeders: 28 Fat Steers: 48 Hogs: 85 As you can see, there is a major obligation to Gilchrist County to provide Buyers on behalf of our children. Over the past several years, two or three individuals have gone around door to door, doing mail-outs and making phone calls on behalf of our children. Their dedication to this community and our children is much appreciated. It has always been the philosophy of the Boosters to try to support ANY and ALL children in need from Gilchrist County. This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching. For Gilchrist County Fair Boosters to be able to move forward and continue to aid each child in need, we feel the need to employ your help. This year, again, due to the current state of the economy, we are requiring exhibitors and/or family members to assist the Booster Club in raising money. For you (or your child) to have the Booster Club consider bidding on your animal, you must raise at least the minimum amount as follows: Fat Steer: $ 100.00 Feeder Steer: $ 75.00 Hog: $ 50.00 Please understand the Booster Club is in no way trying to exclude anyone from receiving assistance, but your help is needed to enable us to continue to purchase animals for Gilchrist County exhibitors. If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collec tion. Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.

Not only will the Suwannee River Fair be in full swing, but the annual quilt fes tival will be held Saturday in down town Trenton. Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival is now in its 7th year and has become a pretty big deal with quilters coming from throughout the state to attend the event. Trentons Main Street will be closed again this year to make room for quilts to be hung on the front of downtown build ings. Numerous craft vendors will be set up in the center of the street to sell their hand-crafted items. The festival committee has plans, not only to have beautiful quilts on display, but also a little something for everyone. Antique cars will be on display near Capital City Bank, while a group of vintage tractor owners plan to bring tractors to town for the crowd to enjoy. The tractors will be displayed on the north end of Main Street. Also, if you have children there will be several kid friendly activities this year, including pony rides and a scavenger hunt. Children will also have the opportunity to learn about quilting at the festival. Many quilt guilds will be participat ing in the festival as well as our local guild the Springhouse Quilt Guild. Members of Springhouse have been working on handmade items to sell in their gift shop which will be located on the platform of the old railroad de pot on the north end of Main. One of my favorite things to do at the festival is to plunder through the antiques dealers treasures. Funny thing about antiques, they bring back great memories and sometimes Ill come home with me. By the way, Saturday is National Quilt Day so attending the festival in downtown Trenton is a great way to celebrate this wonderful art form for not only our generation, but the many generations of American women who came before us. While looking through a 1969 Ala bama cookbook that a friend sent me I found several recipes that I wanted to try. I love old cookbooks that were written back when we didnt know much about our diet. Back in the day things like bacon, butter and cheese were common ingredients in recipes. Back when the only kind of milk we had was whole milk. In 1969 people did know what margarine was, but one or two percent milk was unheard of at that time. Needless to say when thumbing through this 40 year old cookbook I stopped on the Bacon and Cheese Pie recipe; thinking I really should try this one. Bacon and Cheese Pie 10 strips of thin or 5 strips of thick bacon 1 9-inch pie crust 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste 3 eggs, room temperature, beaten 1 1/3 cup whole milk, room tempera ture Fry bacon, drain, crumble. Bake pie crust until slightly brown. Sprin kle bacon in bottom of pie crust then top with cheese. Melt butter in bottom of frying pan and cook onions until tender. Pour onions and butter into eggs and add well with whisk. Pour egg mixture over the bacon and cheese. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Makes 8 servings. Enjoy! Now & Then By Carrie A.

There is no cost for our Try A Day at camp; however, please call to reserve your spot if you and/or your child would like to Try A Day at Camp Cherry Lake. Just call (352) 463-3174 or email me at cdecube@ I try to spend some time reading my Bible every morning. I dont always, but I try because I really need to hear what God has to say. Also, it helps to get His insight before I start the day and decide to do things my own way. Proverbs 14:12 says There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Suddenly, getting up a little earlier seems like a good idea. Some mornings, the things I read are comforting. Other mornings, God challenges me to trust Him with a situation I am worrying about. A few days ago, He gave me some very me away. I cant stop thinking about it, so maybe it will help other parents too! I was reading in Ephesians 4:46 about Christians being called to one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Then I read John 10:4-5 which says, the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will the voice of strangers. As I read this, I started thinking about all the voices that compete for an audience in my own thoughts, and how I need discernment to identify which voice is Gods, and which ones are not. We are called to one God and Father, and that means one authority. Immediately God reminded me of the utmost importance of parents having a united voice when it comes to discipline and authority over their children. Having one parent set a rule or give instruction and then having the other parent undermine it by saying things like, Your Daddy didnt really mean or Just dont let your Mama a lifetime of struggle to identify the voice of God. This holds true within the home, and especially if the parents are divorced or separated. Sadly, our reasoning behind undermining the authority has nothing to do with our childs best interest, but rather we do it to feel like the favorite parent or to be their friend. When a child has two parents giving opposite instructions, they get to choose which one they obey, and it will almost always be the one that gives no protection or guidance. That is a high cost for your child to pay for you to get to be the favorite. Remember Satans voice in the garden? Did God actually say, You shall not eat of any tree in the garden? (Genesis 3:1) He was undermining Gods authority, trying to convince her to disobey. If we as parents undermine the other parents authority, our voice can sound remarkably like the Devils. Think about that and go back to John 4:5: a sheep will not follow a strangers voice because they do not know it. If your children are hearing a parents voice undermine authority, the devils voice will be very familiar to them when they try to follow the voice of God. This will make them much more vulnerable to temptation, and it will be easier for them to follow him instead of God. For parents, this is a bigger deal than just making sure your children brush their teeth, pick up their toys or honor their curfew. It is about taking the time to agree on rules and consequences and then setting authority in place. Then when a parents. When both familiar voices agree, any voice that contradicts this authority will be the voice of a stranger to your children and they their hearts really do matter. On Wednesday, Mar. 26 at 7 p.m., the Lighthouse Word Church will be hosting a dramatic presentation entitled, Facing Your Giants , with Evangelist and Christian Comedian, Barry McGee. This event will be for those of all ages. Barry has entertained at NHRA, IHRA, MRO and NASCAR events, and is a three time winner of comedian of the year with CCMA (Christian Country Music Association) in Nashville.

The First Annual Trenton Rotary Pedal Paddle Run will have entrants bike from TES to Hart Springs then they will paddle a mile and a half up river and back to Hart Springs where they will run 3.2k through Gilchrist Countys jewel of a county park. We expect a good crowd and we know that everyone that participates and spectators will have a great time. But it may be wishful thinking to expect a whole lot of fund raising from an event thats never been done before and it may be wishful thinking to realize the goal of the benefactor of the event as well. The stated benefactor of the event is just an idea, a very worthy and desperately needed idea but just an idea nonetheless. There are about 30 Childrens Advocacy Centers in the state of Florida according to the Florida Network of Childrens Advocacy Centers (FNCAC). Thats 30 areas of the state where children are getting services desperately needed when they reportedly are the subject of abuse or neglect. Our kids locally, have to go to Gainesville often times with someone that they do not know at Childrens Advocacy Center: Is it just wishful thinking? a time when they are in the middle of a process that they do not understand for evaluations and treatment that they probably very desperately need. Ok, What is a Childrens Advocacy Center you ask?? I took this directly from the FNCAC website. A Childrens Advocacy Center is a child-focused, facility based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, child advocacy work together to conduct interviews, and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases. So a CAC is a place where children can go locally to get services during And the FNCAC is an organization that provides training, support, technical assistance and leadership on a statewide basis to local CACs. FNCAC also coordinate with the national organization. That means that FNCAC will help you once you get going but it takes a local group and fund administration. How great is the need for a CAC in the tri-county area? According to state records the kids in our area take advantage of only a small fraction of the services that are offered to them when they the subject of an abuse case because of the distance to Gainesville. Ask any teacher that you know or for that matter any law our local judges and they will tell you about the need. Go on U-Tube and search for Childrens Advocacy Centers and you will see what they might look like. Service providers would travel from Gainesville and there is no cost for them to provide those services to the children involved. No question a Childrens Advocacy Center would be a wonderful feather in our community cap. So what exactly is needed to begin a tri-county CAC: Name Board of Directors An appropriate facility of at least 2,500 sq. ft. An administrator to explore and write grants and coordinate fundraising So thats the wishful thinking of the Trenton Rotary Club, that the little bit of seed money that might be made from a family fun day at Hart Springs might just end up being a small part of something much bigger in the community. All of the local Valley, Trenton and Dixie County have expressed an interest in helping support a CAC and there has been a lot of interest from various other individuals and groups but there is no organization at this date. Wishful Thinking?? I am reminded of the fact that what is now Palms Medical Center in Trenton and Bell were once the wishful thinking of a number of local Rotarians including the late William Clifton and J. Min Ayers and many others. Those individuals would be amazed at what their wishful thinking brought about, so lets keep wishful thinking we can have a great time and maybe do great things. The Trenton Rotary Club and Host Dr. Robert Vaughn heard from Gilchrist County Administrator Bobby Crosby, at its regular Monday lunch meeting on March 3, 2014. Mr. Cosby told Rotarians about the progress Gilchrist County has made in the last year and what is to come. Many roads have been paved with more on tap. An update on the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline was discussed. Much more has been accomplished and a new website is being developed for the county. Trenton Rotary Club

GILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOSTERS Dear Gilchrist County Fair Exhibitor & Parents: In the past, Gilchrist County Fair Boosters have tried extremely hard to cover each and every child down at the Suwannee River Fair on the day of the sale. Due to the current economic conditions, we are asking for your help and support to ensure no child is left standing in the sale ring hearing RESALE. We are diligently soliciting any and all funds available through our local businesses and generous residents of Gilchrist County. Please see the following breakdown for this years show: Gilchrist Exhibitors Feeders: 28 Fat Steers: 48 Hogs: 85As you can see, there is a major obligation to Gilchrist County to provide Buyers on behalf of our children. Over the past several years, two or three individuals have gone around door to door, doing mail-outs and making phone calls on behalf of our children. Their dedication to this community and our children is much appreciated. It has always been the philosophy of the Boosters to try to support ANY and ALL children in need from Gilchrist County. This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching. For Gilchrist County Fair Boosters to be able to move forward and continue to aid each child in need, we feel the need to employ your help. This year, again, due to the current state of the economy, we are requiring exhibitors and/or family members to assist the Booster Club in raising money. For you (or your child) to have the Booster Club consider bidding on your animal, you must raise at least the minimum amount as follows: Fat Steer: $ 100.00 Feeder Steer: $ 75.00 Hog: $ 50.00Please understand the Booster Club is in no way trying to exclude anyone from receiving assistance, but your help is needed to enable us to continue to purchase animals for Gilchrist County exhibitors. If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collection. Thank you for your time and attention.

Not only will the Suwannee River Fair be in full swing, but the annual quilt festival will be held Saturday in downtown Trenton. Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival is now in its 7th year and has become a pretty big deal with quilters coming from throughout the state to attend the event. Trentons Main Street will be closed again this year to make room for quilts to be hung on the front of downtown buildings. Numerous craft vendors will be set up in the center of the street to sell their hand-crafted items. The festival committee has plans, not only to have beautiful quilts on display, but also a little something for everyone. Antique cars will be on display near Capital City Bank, while a group of vintage tractor owners plan to bring tractors to town for the crowd to enjoy. The tractors will be displayed on the north end of Main Street. Also, if you have children there will be several kid friendly activities this year, including pony rides and a scavenger hunt. Children will also have the opportunity to learn about quilting at the festival. Many quilt guilds will be participating in the festival as well as our local guild the Springhouse Quilt Guild. Members of Springhouse have been working on handmade items to sell in their gift shop which will be located on the platform of the old railroad depot on the north end of Main. One of my favorite things to do at the festival is to plunder through the antiques dealers treasures. Funny thing about antiques, they bring back great memories and sometimes Ill come home with me. By the way, Saturday is National Quilt Day so attending the festival in downtown Trenton is a great way to celebrate this wonderful art form for not only our generation, but the many generations of American women who came before us. While looking through a 1969 Alabama cookbook that a friend sent me I found several recipes that I wanted to try. I love old cookbooks that were written back when we didnt know much about our diet. Back in the day things like bacon, butter and cheese were common ingredients in recipes. Back when the only kind of milk we had was whole milk. In 1969 people did know what margarine was, but one or two percent milk was unheard of at that time. Needless to say when thumbing through this 40 year old cookbook I stopped on the Bacon and Cheese Pie recipe; thinking I really should try this one. Bacon and Cheese Pie10 strips of thin or 5 strips of thick bacon 1 9-inch pie crust 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste 3 eggs, room temperature, beaten 1 1/3 cup whole milk, room temperature Fry bacon, drain, crumble. Bake pie crust until slightly brown. Sprinkle bacon in bottom of pie crust then top with cheese. Melt butter in bottom of frying pan and cook onions until tender. Pour onions and butter into eggs and add well with whisk. Pour egg mixture over the bacon and cheese. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Makes 8 servings. Enjoy! Now & ThenBy Carrie A.

There is no cost for our Try A Day at camp; however, please call to reserve your spot if you and/or your child would like to Try A Day at Camp Cherry Lake. Just call (352) 463-3174 or email me at cdecube@ I try to spend some time reading my Bible every morning. I dont always, but I try because I really need to hear what God has to say. Also, it helps to get His insight before I start the day and decide to do things my own way. Proverbs 14:12 says There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Suddenly, getting up a little earlier seems like a good idea. Some mornings, the things I read are comforting. Other mornings, God challenges me to trust Him with a situation I am worrying about. A few days ago, He gave me some very me away. I cant stop thinking about it, so maybe it will help other parents too! I was reading in Ephesians 4:46 about Christians being called to one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Then I read John 10:4-5 which says, the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will the voice of strangers. As I read this, I started thinking about all the voices that compete for an audience in my own thoughts, and how I need discernment to identify which voice is Gods, and which ones are not. We are called to one God and Father, and that means one authority. Immediately God reminded me of the utmost importance of parents having a united voice when it comes to discipline and authority over their children. Having one parent set a rule or give instruction and then having the other parent undermine it by saying things like, Your Daddy didnt really mean or Just dont let your Mama a lifetime of struggle to identify the voice of God. This holds true within the home, and especially if the parents are divorced or separated. Sadly, our reasoning behind undermining the authority has nothing to do with our childs best interest, but rather we do it to feel like the favorite parent or to be their friend. When a child has two parents giving opposite instructions, they get to choose which one they obey, and it will almost always be the one that gives no protection or guidance. That is a high cost for your child to pay for you to get to be the favorite. Remember Satans voice in the garden? Did God actually say, You shall not eat of any tree in the garden? (Genesis 3:1) He was undermining Gods authority, trying to convince her to disobey. If we as parents undermine the other parents authority, our voice can sound remarkably like the Devils. Think about that and go back to John 4:5: a sheep will not follow a strangers voice because they do not know it. If your children are hearing a parents voice undermine authority, the devils voice will be very familiar to them when they try to follow the voice of God. This will make them much more vulnerable to temptation, and it will be easier for them to follow him instead of God. For parents, this is a bigger deal than just making sure your children brush their teeth, pick up their toys or honor their curfew. It is about taking the time to agree on rules and consequences and then setting authority in place. Then when a parents. When both familiar voices agree, any voice that contradicts this authority will be the voice of a stranger to your children and they their hearts really do matter. On Wednesday, Mar. 26 at 7 p.m., the Lighthouse Word Church will be hosting a dramatic presentation entitled, Facing Your Giants, with Evangelist and Christian Comedian, Barry McGee. This event will be for those of all ages. Barry has entertained at NHRA, IHRA, MRO and NASCAR events, and is a three time winner of comedian of the year with CCMA (Christian Country Music Association) in Nashville.

The First Annual Trenton Rotary Pedal Paddle Run will have entrants bike from TES to Hart Springs then they will paddle a mile and a half up river and back to Hart Springs where they will run 3.2k through Gilchrist Countys jewel of a county park. We expect a good crowd and we know that everyone that participates and spectators will have a great time. But it may be wishful thinking to expect a whole lot of fund raising from an event thats never been done before and it may be wishful thinking to realize the goal of the benefactor of the event as well. The stated benefactor of the event is just an idea, a very worthy and desperately needed idea but just an idea nonetheless. There are about 30 Childrens Advocacy Centers in the state of Florida according to the Florida Network of Childrens Advocacy Centers (FNCAC). Thats 30 areas of the state where children are getting services desperately needed when they reportedly are the subject of abuse or neglect. Our kids locally, have to go to Gainesville often times with someone that they do not know at Childrens Advocacy Center: Is it just wishful thinking?a time when they are in the middle of a process that they do not understand for evaluations and treatment that they probably very desperately need. Ok, What is a Childrens Advocacy Center you ask?? I took this directly from the FNCAC website. A Childrens Advocacy Center is a child-focused, facility based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy, child advocacy work together to conduct interviews, and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases. So a CAC is a place where children can go locally to get services during And the FNCAC is an organization that provides training, support, technical assistance and leadership on a statewide basis to local CACs. FNCAC also coordinate with the national organization. That means that FNCAC will help you once you get going but it takes a local group and fund administration. How great is the need for a CAC in the tri-county area? According to state records the kids in our area take advantage of only a small fraction of the services that are offered to them when they the subject of an abuse case because of the distance to Gainesville. Ask any teacher that you know or for that matter any law our local judges and they will tell you about the need. Go on U-Tube and search for Childrens Advocacy Centers and you will see what they might look like. Service providers would travel from Gainesville and there is no cost for them to provide those services to the children involved. No question a Childrens Advocacy Center would be a wonderful feather in our community cap. So what exactly is needed to begin a tri-county CAC: Name Board of Directors An appropriate facility of at least 2,500 sq. ft. An administrator to explore and write grants and coordinate fundraising So thats the wishful thinking of the Trenton Rotary Club, that the little bit of seed money that might be made from a family fun day at Hart Springs might just end up being a small part of something much bigger in the community. All of the local Valley, Trenton and Dixie County have expressed an interest in helping support a CAC and there has been a lot of interest from various other individuals and groups but there is no organization at this date. Wishful Thinking?? I am reminded of the fact that what is now Palms Medical Center in Trenton and Bell were once the wishful thinking of a number of local Rotarians including the late William Clifton and J. Min Ayers and many others. Those individuals would be amazed at what their wishful thinking brought about, so lets keep wishful thinking we can have a great time and maybe do great things. The Trenton Rotary Club and Host Dr. Robert Vaughn heard from Gilchrist County Administrator Bobby Crosby, at its regular Monday lunch meeting on March 3, 2014. Mr. Cosby told Rotarians about the progress Gilchrist County has made in the last year and what is to come. Many roads have been paved with more on tap. An update on the Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline was discussed. Much more has been accomplished and a new website is being developed for the county.Trenton Rotary Club
