IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell The deadline to run by petition cards for the upcoming election has passed with several candidates coming out for the Gilchrist County Commission and few for the Gilchrist County School Board. Few candidates for 2014 electionIncumbent D. Ray Harrison, Jr. is seeking re-election to the Gilchrist County Commission, District 2 seat. As a registered Republican, Harrison, faces a challenge from fellow Republican Richard L. Fuller and Democrat John Yencho. Likewise, Democrat John Rance Thomas faces a challenge from Republican Marion C. Poitevint, for the County Commission, District 4 seat. School Board members Deen Lancaster, who represents District 5, and Michelle Walker-Crawford, of District 3 have turned in the required number of signature cards, but have not drawn opponents. Incumbent Cloud Haley faces an opponent, Christie L. McElroy, for the School Board District 1 seat he has held for the last seven years. According to the Supervisor of passed out petition cards to registered voters and gathered 112 signatures to run, rather than paying the qualifying fee which is six percent of the salary for county commission candidates and four percent of the salary for school board candidates. Qualifying for the 2014 election will run from noon on Monday, June 16 to noon on Friday, June 20. The primary election is August 26. When school begins in August, all students will be able to get breakfast and lunch at school without paying. The Gilchrist County School Board approved participation in the Community Eligibility Provision for the new school year. During the 201415 school year, parents will no longer have to be concerned about making sure their student has money at school to pay for meals. Only ala carte items will have a cost that will require money. With passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act was amended to provide an alternative to household eligibility applications for free and reduced-School meals will be free in 2014-15price meals in high-poverty districts. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) permits eligible schools to provide meals at no charge to all students, regardless of their economic status. Schools choosing to participate in the CEP are reimbursed at the appropriate federal free meal rate for that percentage of meals equal to 1.6 times the percentage of students found to be eligible for free meals through process (those who are receiving SNAP, TANF, or Medicaid), while the remaining meals are reimbursed at the appropriate federal paid meal rate. For example, if 50 percent of the students in a CEP school are found to be eligible for free meals through would be eligible for reimbursement at the federal free meal rate for (1.6 x 50 percent) = 80 percent of all the meals served at the schools. The remaining 20 percent of meals would be reimbursed at the federal paid meal rate. Community eligibility operated in 4,000 schools in 11 states this year, and will be available nationwide this coming school year. More than 22,000 schools around the country are now eligible to participate in community eligibility and have until June 30 to decide if they want to adopt it next year. years of implementation show the community eligibility improves participation in the school meal programs. It takes participation of the students to make this program work. in participation, results could be a service program. It is a win-win for students and schools. Feeding hungry children is one of the best investments our government can make. Studies show that students with reliable access to better nutrition tend to perform better academically. Community eligibility is a targeted, low-cost option that will go a long way to help hungry children, and now is the time for Gilchrist County to get ready for this exciting new way of offering meals.

My name is Cloud Haley, and it is my privilege and honor to announce my desire to continue to serve as your representative from District 1 on the Gilchrist County School Board.

It is an honorable undertaking, and I am grateful and humbled to have been given the opportunity to serve my community the past 7 years on the Gilchrist County School Board. I believe I have the education and experience that will allow me to continue to make a vital contribution to our school system. My wife, Jennie, and I have made Gilchrist County our home for over 30 years. Our children Brice and Breanna both graduated from Trenton High School, and Jennie has taught many of your children at Trenton Elementary as a teachers aide. One of my highest priorities is family, and our school system is like a big family. I value the friendships we have made over the years, and I am equally proud for the students that have received a strong educational experience in our schools.

Its quite surreal to see your little girl dressed in a cap and gown and accepting a diploma. And while I know preschool graduation has nothing on the pomp and circumstance of high school graduation, there was still a lump in my throat last week as my daughters name was called and I watched her walk across the stage. Oh, the places youll go! I thought, recalling the title of a favorite Dr. Seuss book. Held at the United Methodist Church in Folkston, Georgia, Allie Claires graduation ceremony was adorable. In typical south Georgia fashion, the ceremony was followed by a fried chicken supper, cake and punch. Allie Claire stood with pride alongside her classmates and recited the ABCs and 123s and a great many other things theyve learned this year, including how to tie their shoes and when to say please. Adam and I could not be more proud of our girl and all that she has learned over the last two years at playschool. As if graduation wasnt enough last week, I also took Allie Claire to my alma mater, Trenton Elementary School, for kindergarten registration on Tuesday. She was so delighted to be visiting the big school that cousin Gus attends. In typical Allie fashion, she started acting shy once we arrived at the school and rather than talking nonstop, as she usually does, she walked through the kindergarten classrooms just taking it all in, rather than talking with the teachers and students she didnt know. Look out kindergarten here she comes, whether this momma is ready for it or not.

Thanks so much for all the calls, cards, prayers and well wishes during my recent hip replacement. Also, a special thanks to the staff at the library, Lorrie Akin, Jennifer Geiger, Sylvia Hiers and Terri McIntyre for doing a great job in my absence. Anne CarawayThank you Momma kept a garden, which sounds romantic to people who have never held a hoe. Rick Bragg I truly love this time of year, the time of year when all the vegetables start coming in. We are feasting on new potatoes, squash, and cucumbers daily, while anticipating all the other fresh vegetables that will follow in the next couple of weeks. John and I spent Saturday morning hoeing out the peas and staking tomato plants. Yes, it is a lot of work, but there is a lot of satisfaction in nally dining on your very own homegrown vegetables. Truthfully, this is just a wonderful time of year to eat vegetables cooked in a wide variety of ways. It seems no matter how often I check the zucchini squash Ill miss one and it will be nearly as big as a bat before its picked, but thats OK because those big old zucs make wonderful zucchini bread. Just this last week I tried out a really good recipe for baked stuffed zucchini. I had a couple zucchini that were about 7 or 8 inches long, which was just the right size for this recipe. I hope you enjoy it!Baked Stuffed Zucchini2 medium zucchini 1/2 pound ground pork sausage 1 cup chopped onion Olive oil 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 egg beaten 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup soft bread crumbs 1/2 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese Cut Zucchini in half lengthwise, scoop pulp from center of zucchini, forming a boat shape. A melon baller works good to scoop out the centers. Reserve shells and chop the pulp that was removed. Saute meat and onions in a little olive oil. Drain excess oil. Add zucchini pulp and garlic, saute until tender. Add egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper, stir well. Arrange zucchini shells on buttered glass casserole dish. Fill tomato sauce with dried oregano and spoon over stuffing. Cover with lid or foil and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover and top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 25 to 35 minutes more. Test by sticking shells with fork. If the shells are tender the dish is done, if not cook a few minutes longer. Makes 4 servings. --This week I have a very simple cucumber recipe to share. In fact this is good with fresh tomatoes and bell peppers added also. This cucumber salad was really simple and extra good served alongside other fresh vegetables. Fresh Cucumber Salad3 medium size cucumbers 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion Dressing: 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons water 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Combine all dressing ingredients and bring to boil in a sauce pan. Cool the dressing to room temperature. Put dressing in Mason jar and shake until the dressing become emulsionion slices. Pour dressing over the cucumber and onion mixture. Chill for 2 hours or longer before serving. Makes 4 servings. Please note that the Hart Springs blood drive planned for May 26 will ternate location has not yet been determined.Blood Drive at Hart Springs cancelled My little graduate, Allie Claire.

The city commissioners, acting as the planning and zoning board, approved the 9,100 square foot store that will be built on 3.32 acres located next to Southern Tire. The property is currently owned by Buddy and Susan Joiner, but it will be Concept Development, LLC that will be developing the property. One of the concerns for the development is a sewer line which runs through the middle of the property. The developer, Matt Cason, has agreed to move the sewer line to the front of the property so it will run along the sidewalk at no cost to the city. The developer requested a waiver on the amount of parking spaces that the store will have. According to the Citys land development regulations a total of 54 parking spaces is required for a building this size in Trenton. The developer cited a 2011 trafdifferent Dollar General stores in north Florida and a store the size of Trentons new proposed Dollar General store only requires 32 parking spaces. Ultimately, the developer was told that 40 parking spaces would need to be provided for the new facility.

Cody Wetherington was sworn in by City Attorney David Miller Lang, Jr. during the meeting. Recently, the Trenton City Commission voted to withdraw from the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority. City Manager Taylor Brown who served on the board of the water authority told the city commissioners that the projects the water authority would be working on in the near future involved mainly Dixie County and he did not see the need for Trenton to be involved for years into the future. Brown also stated the City of Trenton could rejoin the authority at a later date if they choose. In a letter to Mike Cassidy, chairman of the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority, Brown stated, The decision to withdraw at this time has been made solely due to the very limited amount of resources that the City has available to deploy to all of it endeavors. Brown went on to say that the City of Trenton needs to use its resources to address the immediate needs of the Citys own aging infrastructure which has been exrecent months.

The Suwannee River Early Ford club sponsors the show each year and dedicated this years event to the founder of the car show, Don Fales. Don was a great man that enjoyed gathering with others and sharing sentimental moments. The fantastic weather, picnic food and great music set the stage for an afternoon of fun and relaxation. Many of the registrants for the car show have been coming to this event because of the beautiful surroundings under the huge oak trees. They also are rewarded by the common interests that Ayers residents have with them and their cars. They own the cars, Ayers residents once drove! The stories that are shared and the memories rekindled by the beautiful cars are really what the day is treasured for.

Mizell The deadline to run by petition cards for the upcoming election has passed with several candidates coming out for the Gilchrist County Commission and few for the Gilchrist County School Board. Few candidates for 2014 election Incumbent D. Ray Harrison, Jr. is seeking re-election to the Gilchrist County Commission, District 2 seat. As a registered Republican, Harrison, faces a challenge from fellow Republican Richard L. Fuller and Democrat John Yencho. Likewise, Democrat John Rance Thomas faces a challenge from Republican Marion C. Poitevint, for the County Commission, District 4 seat. School Board members Deen Lancaster, who represents District 5, and Michelle Walker-Crawford, of District 3 have turned in the required number of signature cards, but have not drawn opponents. Incumbent Cloud Haley faces an opponent, Christie L. McElroy, for the School Board District 1 seat he has held for the last seven years. According to the Supervisor of passed out petition cards to registered voters and gathered 112 signatures to run, rather than paying the qualifying fee which is six percent of the salary for county commission candidates and four percent of the salary for school board candidates. Qualifying for the 2014 election will run from noon on Monday, June 16 to noon on Friday, June 20. The primary election is August 26. When school begins in August, all students will be able to get breakfast and lunch at school without paying. The Gilchrist County School Board approved participation in the Community Eligibility Provision for the new school year. During the 201415 school year, parents will no longer have to be concerned about making sure their student has money at school to pay for meals. Only ala carte items will have a cost that will require money. With passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act was amended to provide an alternative to household eligibility applications for free and reducedSchool meals will be free in 2014-15 price meals in high-poverty districts. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) permits eligible schools to provide meals at no charge to all students, regardless of their economic status. Schools choosing to participate in the CEP are reimbursed at the appropriate federal free meal rate for that percentage of meals equal to 1.6 times the percentage of students found to be eligible for free meals through process (those who are receiving SNAP, TANF, or Medicaid), while the remaining meals are reimbursed at the appropriate federal paid meal rate. For example, if 50 percent of the students in a CEP school are found to be eligible for free meals through would be eligible for reimbursement at the federal free meal rate for (1.6 x 50 percent) = 80 percent of all the meals served at the schools. The remaining 20 percent of meals would be reimbursed at the federal paid meal rate. Community eligibility operated in 4,000 schools in 11 states this year, and will be available nationwide this coming school year. More than 22,000 schools around the country are now eligible to participate in community eligibility and have until June 30 to decide if they want to adopt it next year. years of implementation show the community eligibility improves participation in the school meal programs. It takes participation of the students to make this program work. in participation, results could be a service program. It is a win-win for students and schools. Feeding hungry children is one of the best investments our government can make. Studies show that students with reliable access to better nutrition tend to perform better academically. Community eligibility is a targeted, low-cost option that will go a long way to help hungry children, and now is the time for Gilchrist County to get ready for this exciting new way of offering meals.

Its quite surreal to see your little girl dressed in a cap and gown and accepting a diploma. And while I know preschool graduation has noth ing on the pomp and circumstance of high school graduation, there was still a lump in my throat last week as my daughters name was called and I watched her walk across the stage. Oh, the places youll go! I thought, recalling the title of a favor ite Dr. Seuss book. Held at the United Methodist Church in Folkston, Georgia, Allie Claires graduation ceremony was adorable. In typical south Georgia fashion, the ceremony was followed by a fried chicken supper, cake and punch. Allie Claire stood with pride alongside her classmates and recited the ABCs and 123s and a great many other things theyve learned this year, including how to tie their shoes and when to say please. Adam and I could not be more proud of our girl and all that she has learned over the last two years at playschool. As if graduation wasnt enough last week, I also took Allie Claire to my alma mater, Trenton Elementary School, for kindergar ten registration on Tuesday. She was so delighted to be visiting the big school that cousin Gus attends. In typical Allie fashion, she start ed acting shy once we arrived at the school and rather than talking nonstop, as she usually does, she walked through the kindergarten classrooms just taking it all in, rather than talk ing with the teachers and students she didnt know.

Anne Caraway Thank you Momma kept a gar den, which sounds romantic to people who have never held a hoe. Rick Bragg I truly love this time of year, the time of year when all the vegetables start coming in. We are feasting on new po tatoes, squash, and cucumbers daily, while anticipating all the other fresh vegetables that will follow in the next couple of weeks. John and I spent Saturday morn ing hoeing out the peas and staking tomato plants. Yes, it is a lot of work, but there is a lot of satisfaction in nally dining on your very own home grown vegetables. Truthfully, this is just a wonderful time of year to eat vegetables cooked in a wide variety of ways. It seems no matter how often I check the zucchini squash Ill miss one and it will be nearly as big as a bat before its picked, but thats OK because those big old zucs make wonderful zucchini bread. Just this last week I tried out a re ally good recipe for baked stuffed zucchini. I had a couple zucchini that were about 7 or 8 inches long, which was just the right size for this recipe. I hope you enjoy it! Baked Stuffed Zucchini 2 medium zucchini 1/2 pound ground pork sausage 1 cup chopped onion Olive oil 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 egg beaten 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup soft bread crumbs 1/2 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese Cut Zucchini in half lengthwise, scoop pulp from center of zucchini, forming a boat shape. A melon baller works good to scoop out the centers. Reserve shells and chop the pulp that was removed. Saute meat and onions in a little olive oil. Drain excess oil. Add zucchini pulp and garlic, saute until tender. Add egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pep per, stir well. Arrange zucchini shells on buttered glass casserole dish. Fill tomato sauce with dried oregano and spoon over stuff ing. Cover with lid or foil and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Un cover and top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 25 to 35 minutes more. Test by sticking shells with fork. If the shells are tender the dish is done, if not cook a few minutes lon ger. Makes 4 servings. --This week I have a very simple cucumber recipe to share. In fact this is good with fresh tomatoes and bell peppers added also. This cucumber salad was really simple and extra good served alongside other fresh vegetables. Fresh Cucumber Salad 3 medium size cucumbers 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion Dressing: 1/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons water 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Combine all dressing ingredients and bring to boil in a sauce pan. Cool the dressing to room temperature. Put dressing in Mason jar and shake until the dressing become emulsi onion slices. Pour dressing over the cucumber and onion mixture. Chill for 2 hours or longer before serving. Makes 4 servings. Please note that the Hart Springs blood drive planned for May 26 will ternate location has not yet been de termined.

By John M Ayers The Trenton Tigers were upset 95, Tuesday, May 13, by an energetic Lafayette Hornets team in Mayo.

The Suwannee River Early Ford club sponsors the show each year and dedicated this years event to the founder of the car show, Don Fales. Don was a great man that enjoyed gathering with others and sharing sentimental moments. The fantastic weather, picnic food and great music set the stage for an afternoon of fun and relaxation. Many of the registrants for the car show have been coming to this event because of the beautiful surroundings under the huge oak trees. They also are rewarded by the common interests that Ayers residents have with them and their cars. They own the cars, Ayers residents once drove! The stories that are shared and the memories rekindled by the beautiful cars are really what the day is treasured for. It is so much fun to hear which cars are the residents favorites and the reason why they are selected. The residents feel that this event is something that they can actively be involved in and it connects the community to their lives. We thank our neighbors for participating with us and helping Ayers partners create an exciting program for our residents. 21st Annual Car Show held at Ayers Health & Rehabilitation 1935 Lincoln Continental Chris, Karissa, Ruby and Kayden Roberts Ann Frost and Lizzie Stephens Vintage cars and oak trees By John M Ayers The Gilchrist County Commission has begun working to schedule a meeting to bring all the parties together to work out a solution to allow the Holiday Inn Express entrance, along the Greenway Trail north of US 19 in Fanning Springs, and still allow the inspection station room to have semi trucks park on the .7 acre of land for enforcement inspection.
