IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell Parker Yates was 11-years-old when his dad died of cancer. He didnt know his dad was going to die. Even now, four years later, the Trenton High School freshman says it with a shake of his head, like its a horrible dream. Parker remembers the summer day he learned that his dad had cancer. He was suspicious because his dad hadnt been home in two days and he didnt think he was on a business trip. But even as his mother said the word leukemia Parker remembers thinking that his dad would undergo treatment and recover. After all, his cousin Matt had the same type of cancer and he survived, surely his dad would as well. He was only in his 30s, who dies of cancer in their 30s? Parker said. You never really move on, you just learn to accept the fact that hes not here and hes not coming back. When DeWayne Yates died at the age of 37, after a courageous battle with leukemia, he left a void not only in the community, but also in the hearts of his loved ones. A 1990 graduate of Trenton High School, DeWayne was an accomplished businessman, working as the C.E.O. of the Family Medical and Dental Centers and Trenton Medical Center, Inc. prior to his death. He was an avid Gator fan and often took his son Parker to football games. DeWayne was also a proud democrat and an accomplished cook. Even more than his personal accomplishments and interests, DeWayne was a family man. He was a husband, a father of four, a son, a grandson and a brother, and he sure loved Gilchrist County. The citizens of this community loved him in return, and crowded into First Baptist Church of on February 27, 2010. Tears were shed as Parker sang along with a recording of Conway Twitty singing Thats My Job. Im not a very good singer, but my dad loved to hear me sing and he really liked that song, Parker said. Its ironic that the song is about a boy losing his father. --- I woke up cryin late at night when I was very young I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone My world revolved around him, I couldnt lie there anymore So I made my way down the mirrored hall And tapped upon his door And I said, Daddy, Im so afraid How will I go on, with you gone that way? Dont wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you? And he said, Thats my job, thats what I do Everything I do is because of you To keep you safe with me, thats my job, you see --- My MeMe says all the time that I look and act like my dad, Parker said. He was loving. He was hardworking. He was diligent and strong. He was brave. DeWayne fought leukemia for months before his battle came to an end. During that time he was hospitalized at Shands in Gainesville and later at MD Anderson Cancer an airplane was a trip to Houston to visit his dad while he was hospitalized at MD Anderson. I never knew that my dads cancer was that severe, Parker said. My Aunt Dana told me later that my dad didnt want me to know because I was the only one who treated him like everything was normalI just wish I had known that he was going to die. Four years after his death, Parker said he knows his dad is in heaven and that he will see him again one day My youngest sister was just a baby when my dad died, so I dont think she even knows what a father is, and that really bothers me, Parker said. My brother and sisters were so little when he diedtheyve moved on now, but I think one day when their older they will want me to tell them about our dad. Parker hasnt missed a Relay For Life in Gilchrist County since he was 2-years-old, and since his dad died of cancer, the fundraiser for cancer research has taken on new meaning to him. It was always important to me, it was just about other people and their losses, Parker said. Now I know how they feel and its terrible.

Mizell Two Gilchrist County employees are being credited as heroes after rescuing According to Gilchrist County Administrator Bobby Crosby, Billy Cannon, Sun Springs boat ramp at 9:25 p.m. A husband and wife were reportedly walking back from their home on SW who was wearing rubber boots at the time and could not swim, was swept out life vests, when they were reportedly wading to their home to check on things and retrieve some clothing. The wife was able to call 911 and tell a dispatcher that her husband was in trouble and that he could not swim. She reportedly told dispatch that she didnt think her husband would be able to hang on much longer. Dispatch called in all emergency personnel and Billy Cannon, as road department superintendent, to the scene. of the situation, the two men made the choice not to wait for additional rescue personnel. They drove as far as they could and then began swimming, holding on to trees to rest, as they made their way out to the stranded couple in the dark. I was scared, I would be lying if I said I wasnt scared, we didnt have life jackets to put on, Cannon said on Tuesday, recalling the rescue. When I got out of my truck a three foot gator swam by. Im just thankful we could get to the people in time. The good Lord was there with us. Cannon and Kitlen were able to get the man into the raft and save the couple. A local resident with a boat was able to help with the rescue effort. Billy and Kitlen saved the couples lives, said Sheriff Bobby Schultz. The county administrator said on Monday that he is thankful no lives were lost and hes also thankful for Cannon and Kitlen who were willing to risk their own lives to save the life of another.

Suwannee Bell Residence Because Im an old Southern woman and were supposed to wear funny looking hats and ugly clothes and grow vegetables in the dirt....I dont know why! I dont make up the rules! Ouiser, in Steel Magnolia Im feeling and looking a lot more like Ouiser these days. You see the sun is a little on the bright side for me straw hat has become a necessary part of my mismatched garden attire. Also noteworthy on the fashion front are my black rubber boots with colorful polka-dots. Fact is, it really does not matter what old faded shorts and baggy t-shirt I wear, between the band and black polka dot boots, I am, as my grandmother would have said, a sight while hoeing and pulling weeds in our garden. always look a bit rough this time of year but the fruits of my labor are well on the way. Through the years spent in the garden Ive learned a lot including how to tolerate nut grass. A few years ago I had several hissy nail in a spring vegetable garden. Needless to say the nut grass won. Now days I pull out and try to dig up the nut grass that really effects my pea rows, but the nut grass that grows in between the rows is pretty much left alone. Through the years I learned a lot about seeds, which seeds to plant and which ones were the best suited to our area of the state. Turns out, that when its all said and done the best seeds you can get are from friends. Seeds that are saved in some cases for many, many years and passed down. Seeds that have been handed down for generations are known as heirloom seeds. Now, at the end of the day I stand over the rows of peas I think, well, the Simpson peas look pretty good, but the Watson peas, aka RW-40s, have a few weeds that I need to pull. I have two new types of heirloom seeds for the garden that Im really excited about this Spring. One is a great old corn seed which came my way from a great old Gilchrist County family who are much loved and admired. The Townsend corn old seed I have this year came from a heirloom seed company up North. I found it at the County Living Fair in Atlanta last fall, its a Florida running speckled butter bean. The Florida seed came from the D. Landreth Seed Company which have been in Pennsylvania. Of course someone sent the seeds into this company and they started selling them. According to the company these butter beans are very heat resistant and were often planted between the corn rows years ago. Well, we will see what they do, who knows, in a few years I might be sharing these running butter bean seeds with my gardening friends. Floppy hat and all I have grown to really appreciate the legacy of being a farmer. --As the days grow hotter, as we all know they surely will, this simple English pea salad might just hit the spot. It would be really good if youve been out working in the garden or doing yard work. It is quick and easy and you can add cheddar cheese, boiled eggs or whatever you fancy to make the salad your own. Simply Springtime English Pea Salad3 cups frozen English peas, thawed 1/2 cup chopped celery 3 green onions or 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion 3 strips fried and crumbled bacon Dressing: 3 tablespoon mayo 2 tablespoons sour cream 1/4 teaspoon prepared mustard Salt and pepper to taste Any type of seasoning salt, to taste Rinse peas and drain really well. Add celery, onion and bacon to peas and stir. Stir dressing together and pour over pea mixture and stir. This salad is best when left to chill for two hours to overnight. Every year since President Dwight has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A retirement reception was held on Thursday, Apr. 24 in Judge Sheree Lancasters chambers inside the Gilchrist County Courthouse. Friends and co-workers gathered to enjoy cake and punch in Blankenships honor and wish him well in his retirement. Deputy Blankenship retires after 25 years with GCSO Now & ThenBy Carrie A. Mizell Poll of the WeekGo to gilchristcountyjournal.net to vote on this weeks poll question: or Santa Fe rivers? If yes, then tell us how so. Never did I dream last weeks poll question would prompt so much feedback. Many of you thought Trenton and Bell schools should hold prom right here in Gilchrist County, while others felt like students should continue getting a true night out in Gainesville. I asked the question because several local residents have suggested Trenton and Bell schools hold their proms at the new facility at the Suwannee River Fairgrounds, rather than traveling to Gainesville for prom. Seventy four people voted in favor of holding prom in Gilchrist County and 40 people felt like prom would be better held in Gainesville. Below are a few opinions we received on our website and Facebook page: Prom is about decorating and being together as a class. Other local counties transform their gym into a fabulous venue, there are possibilities. Julie --- If it is a school function, it should be held at the school. It would save money, but more importantly would be safer since there is less traveling involved. -Kim --- Yeah, when I was in school we had to have it in the old cafeteria. It was so sad! Melanie --fortunately, there is no comparable venue. Karen --- Gilchrist County has no nice event space to hold the proms. Jenny --- Let them go to Gainesville and enjoy an elegant night. Aubrey --- The fairgrounds, really? These kids work to raise money in fundraisers to help afford the event space and decorations let them hold it wherever theyd like. And children will party no matter where prom is held. It is the parents responsibility to know where their children are. Ashley ----- Gilchrist County School Board should make the students stay on the school campus for their proms, we did when we were in school. It is much safer there than allowing the children to drive far off. Besides, its a school function not a party elsewhere. -Johnnie --Thank you to everyone who voted. Spring Yard Sale and Bake Sale Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is having their annual Spring Yard a.m. until 2 p.m. We have cleaned out our closets, cabinets and garages, and have baked up some goodies.

Now, therefore, be it resolved, by the Commission of the City of Trenton that the month of May is proclaimed as Civility Month, and calls upon all citizens to exercise civility toward each other.

IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell Parker Yates was 11-years-old when his dad died of cancer. He didnt know his dad was going to die. Even now, four years later, the Trenton High School freshman says it with a shake of his head, like its a horrible dream. Parker remembers the summer day he learned that his dad had cancer. He was suspicious because his dad hadnt been home in two days and he didnt think he was on a business trip. But even as his mother said the word leukemia Parker remembers thinking that his dad would undergo treatment and recover. After all, his cousin Matt had the same type of cancer and he survived, surely his dad would as well. He was only in his 30s, who dies of cancer in their 30s? Parker said. You never really move on, you just learn to accept the fact that hes not here and hes not coming back. When DeWayne Yates died at the age of 37, after a courageous battle with leukemia, he left a void not only in the community, but also in the hearts of his loved ones. A 1990 graduate of Trenton High School, DeWayne was an accomplished businessman, working as the C.E.O. of the Family Medical and Dental Centers and Trenton Medical Center, Inc. prior to his death. He was an avid Gator fan and often took his son Parker to football games. DeWayne was also a proud democrat and an accomplished cook. Even more than his personal accomplishments and interests, DeWayne was a family man. He was a husband, a father of four, a son, a grandson and a brother, and he sure loved Gilchrist County. The citizens of this community loved him in return, and crowded into First Baptist Church of on February 27, 2010. Tears were shed as Parker sang along with a recording of Conway Twitty singing Thats My Job. Im not a very good singer, but my dad loved to hear me sing and he really liked that song, Parker said. Its ironic that the song is about a boy losing his father. --I woke up cryin late at night when I was very young I had dreamed my father had passed away and gone My world revolved around him, I couldnt lie there anymore So I made my way down the mirrored hall And tapped upon his door And I said, Daddy, Im so afraid How will I go on, with you gone that way? Dont wanna cry anymore so may I stay with you? And he said, Thats my job, thats what I do Everything I do is because of you To keep you safe with me, thats my job, you see --My MeMe says all the time that I look and act like my dad, Parker said. He was loving. He was hardworking. He was diligent and strong. He was brave. DeWayne fought leukemia for months before his battle came to an end. During that time he was hospitalized at Shands in Gainesville and later at MD Anderson Cancer an airplane was a trip to Houston to visit his dad while he was hospitalized at MD Anderson. I never knew that my dads cancer was that severe, Parker said. My Aunt Dana told me later that my dad didnt want me to know because I was the only one who treated him like everything was normalI just wish I had known that he was going to die. Four years after his death, Parker said he knows his dad is in heaven and that he will see him again one day. My youngest sister was just a baby when my dad died, so I dont think she even knows what a father is, and that really bothers me, Parker said. My brother and sisters were so little when he diedtheyve moved on now, but I think one day when their older they will want me to tell them about our dad. Parker hasnt missed a Relay For Life in Gilchrist County since he was 2-years-old, and since his dad died of cancer, the fundraiser for cancer research has taken on new meaning to him. It was always important to me, it was just about other people and their losses, Parker said. Now I know how they feel and its terrible.

Mizell Two Gilchrist County employees are being credited as heroes after rescuing According to Gilchrist County Administrator Bobby Crosby, Billy Cannon, Sun Springs boat ramp at 9:25 p.m. A husband and wife were reportedly walking back from their home on SW who was wearing rubber boots at the time and could not swim, was swept out life vests, when they were reportedly wading to their home to check on things and retrieve some clothing. The wife was able to call 911 and tell a dispatcher that her husband was in trouble and that he could not swim. She reportedly told dispatch that she didnt think her husband would be able to hang on much longer. Dispatch called in all emergency personnel and Billy Cannon, as road department superintendent, to the scene. of the situation, the two men made the choice not to wait for additional rescue personnel. They drove as far as they could and then began swimming, holding on to trees to rest, as they made their way out to the stranded couple in the dark. I was scared, I would be lying if I said I wasnt scared, we didnt have life jackets to put on, Cannon said on Tuesday, recalling the rescue. When I got out of my truck a three foot gator swam by. Im just thankful we could get to the people in time. The good Lord was there with us. Cannon and Kitlen were able to get the man into the raft and save the couple. A local resident with a boat was able to help with the rescue effort. Billy and Kitlen saved the couples lives, said Sheriff Bobby Schultz. The county administrator said on Monday that he is thankful no lives were lost and hes also thankful for Cannon and Kitlen who were willing to risk their own lives to save the life of another.

Ouiser, in Steel Magnolia Im feeling and looking a lot more like Ouiser these days. You see the sun is a little on the bright side for me straw hat has become a necessary part of my mismatched garden attire. Also noteworthy on the fashion front are my black rubber boots with colorful polka-dots. Fact is, it really does not matter what old faded shorts and baggy t-shirt I wear, between the band and black polka dot boots, I am, as my grandmother would have said, a sight while hoeing and pulling weeds in our garden. always look a bit rough this time of year but the fruits of my labor are well on the way. Through the years spent in the garden Ive learned a lot including how to tolerate nut grass. A few years ago I had several hissy nail in a spring vegetable garden. Needless to say the nut grass won. Now days I pull out and try to dig up the nut grass that really effects my pea rows, but the nut grass that grows in between the rows is pretty much left alone. Through the years I learned a lot about seeds, which seeds to plant and which ones were the best suited to our area of the state. Turns out, that when its all said and done the best seeds you can get are from friends. Seeds that are saved in some cases for many, many years and passed down. Seeds that have been handed down for generations are known as heirloom seeds. Now, at the end of the day I stand over the rows of peas I think, well, the Simpson peas look pretty good, but the Watson peas, aka RW-40s, have a few weeds that I need to pull. I have two new types of heirloom seeds for the garden that Im really excited about this Spring. One is a great old corn seed which came my way from a great old Gilchrist County family who are much loved and admired. The Townsend corn old seed I have this year came from a heirloom seed company up North. I found it at the County Living Fair in Atlanta last fall, its a Florida running speckled butter bean. The Florida seed came from the D. Landreth Seed Company which have been in Pennsylvania. Of course someone sent the seeds into this company and they started selling them. According to the company these butter beans are very heat resistant and were often planted between the corn rows years ago. Well, we will see what they do, who knows, in a few years I might be sharing these running butter bean seeds with my gardening friends. Floppy hat and all I have grown to really appreciate the legacy of being a farmer. --As the days grow hotter, as we all know they surely will, this simple English pea salad might just hit the spot. It would be really good if youve been out working in the garden or doing yard work. It is quick and easy and you can add cheddar cheese, boiled eggs or whatever you fancy to make the salad your own. Simply Springtime English Pea Salad 3 cups frozen English peas, thawed 1/2 cup chopped celery 3 green onions or 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion 3 strips fried and crumbled bacon Dressing: 3 tablespoon mayo 2 tablespoons sour cream 1/4 teaspoon prepared mustard Salt and pepper to taste Any type of seasoning salt, to taste Rinse peas and drain really well. Add celery, onion and bacon to peas and stir. Stir dressing together and pour over pea mixture and stir. This salad is best when left to chill for two hours to overnight. Every year since President Dwight has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A retirement reception was held on Thursday, Apr. 24 in Judge Sheree Lancasters chambers inside the Gilchrist County Courthouse. Friends and co-workers gathered to enjoy cake and punch in Blankenships honor and wish him well in his retirement. Deputy Blankenship retires after 25 years with GCSO Now & Then By Carrie A. Mizell Poll of the Week Go to gilchristcountyjournal.net to vote on this weeks poll question: or Santa Fe rivers? If yes, then tell us how so. Never did I dream last weeks poll question would prompt so much feedback. Many of you thought Tren ton and Bell schools should hold prom right here in Gilchrist County, while others felt like students should continue getting a true night out in Gainesville. I asked the question because several local residents have suggested Tren ton and Bell schools hold their proms at the new facility at the Suwannee River Fairgrounds, rather than travel ing to Gainesville for prom. Seventy four people voted in favor of holding prom in Gilchrist County and 40 people felt like prom would be better held in Gainesville. Below are a few opinions we re ceived on our website and Face book page: Prom is about decorating and be ing together as a class. Other local counties transform their gym into a fabulous venue, there are possibili ties. Julie --If it is a school function, it should be held at the school. It would save money, but more importantly would be safer since there is less traveling involved. -Kim --Yeah, when I was in school we had to have it in the old cafeteria. It was so sad! Melanie --fortunately, there is no comparable venue. Karen --Gilchrist County has no nice event space to hold the proms. Jenny --Let them go to Gainesville and enjoy an elegant night. Aubrey --The fairgrounds, really? These kids work to raise money in fundrais ers to help afford the event space and decorations let them hold it wherever theyd like. And children will party no matter where prom is held. It is the parents responsibility to know where their children are. Ashley ----Gilchrist County School Board should make the students stay on the school campus for their proms, we did when we were in school. It is much safer there than allowing the children to drive far off. Besides, its a school function not a party elsewhere. -Johnnie --Thank you to everyone who voted. Spring Yard Sale and Bake Sale Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is having their annual Spring Yard a.m. until 2 p.m. We have cleaned out our closets, cabinets and garages, and have baked up some goodies.

RAY HARRISON, JR., CHAIRMAN ATTEST: TODD NEWTON CLERK OF COURT Publish May 1, 2014 ______________ PROCLAMATION Whereas, the open exchange of public discourse is essential to the democratic system of government; and Whereas, as a cornerstone of democracy Americans have observed certain rules of behavior generally known as civility; Whereas, civility, derived from the Latin words civitas meaning city and civis meaning citizen, is behavior worthy of citizens living in a community or in common with others; and Whereas, displays of anger, rudeness, ridicule, impatience, and a lack of respect and personal attacks detract from the open exchange of ideas, prevent fair discussion of the issues, and can discourage individuals from participation in government; and Whereas, civility can assist in reaching consensus on diverse issues and allow for mutually respectful ongoing relationships; and Whereas, civility can uplift our daily life and make it more pleasant to live in an organized society; and Whereas, the City, County and Local Government Law Section of The Florida Bar urges the adoption of a pledge of civility by all citizens in the State of Florida. Now, therefore, be it resolved, by the Commission of the City of Trenton that the month of May is proclaimed as Civility Month, and calls upon all citizens to exercise civility toward each other.
