Bell man points a gun at co-op meter reader By Carrie A. Mizell The threat of a dog bite was nothing compared to what one Central Florida Electric Cooperative meter reader encountered recently. The meter reader, whos identity is not being released, was attempting to enter a locked gate on property located at 960 NW 20th Avenue, in Bell, just before 9 a.m. on Wednesday, July 23. In an effort to perform maintenance on the meter, the meter reader used a pair of bolt cutters to unlock the gate and enter the property. Prior to using the bolt cutters, the meter reader reportedly honked the horn on the co-op vehicle and tried to let the homeowner know she was attempting to gain entry on to the property. Arnold James Pope, 62, reportedly came out of the house and told the meter reader she was trespassing. He also told her she was under arrest, while pointing a gun at her. He then asked where the bolt cutters she had used to enter the property were. The meter reader did not respond. Pope reportedly went searching through the meter readers vehicle looking for the bolt cutters. He also is said to have knocked the cell phone she was trying to use to call for help out of her hands. Once Pope found the bolt cutters he reportedly told the meter reader, You cut my chain, I should cut your tires. In the end it was Pope, who is said to be 6 and 300 pounds, who called 911 and reported a disturbance at his home. Pope was subsequently arrested by Deputy Kitlen of the Gilchrist County He was charged with Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon Without Intent to Kill, KidnapFalse Imprisonment Adult, Burglary Dwelling Structure or Conveyance Armed, and Obstructing Justice Harassing in 3rd Degree Felony Proceeding. By law, electric service providers must have access to a customers property to be able to maintain and read service meters for billing purposes, explained Lt. Jeff Manning of the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Local wins National Junior Angus Cook-off Gilchrist County resident Kristen Short is shown after winning the National Junior Angus Show Cook-off earlier this month. By Carrie A. Mizell Twenty-two year old Kristen Short knows her beef. The Gilchrist County native, who serves as junior advisor for the Florida Junior Angus Association, won a national cooking contest on July 8. Ive always loved to cook, Kristen said. There are a lot of good cooks in my family, so I grew up with a chair pulled up in the kitchen. The only child of JJ and Annette Short, Kristen said it wasnt until she showed a cow at the Alachua County Fair that she developed an interest in raising cattle. A love for FFA ensued, along with a fondness for all things Angus. In 2012, Kristen competed in her Cook-off in Louisville, Kentucky and her culotte steak brought home top prize in the junior division. The competition is similar to Chopped, a popular Food Network program, in which competitors are given a main ingredient with several mystery ingredients and asked to prepare a dish using everything they are given. After winning in 2012, Kristen was anxious to compete again earlier this month in the adult division of the National Junior Angus Show Cookoff in Indianapolis, Indiana. This time around, Kristen was given a tritip roast, two or three persimmons, fresh kale and fresh thyme. I had only eaten persimmons one time, and I had never cooked with them, Kristen said, prior to this competition. Despite her initial uncertainty, Kristen prepared a grand prize winning grilled tri-tip roast with warm kale salad and honey lemon dressing. Every time I win my mom says shes not cooking anymore! Kristen lives at home with her parents on County Road 341. When shes not cooking and working with the Florida Junior Angus Association, Kristen is working at North Florida Regional and pursuing a degree in Ag. Business Management from the College of Central Florida. Gilchrist County children got to pet a few exotic animals recently during the Trenton Librarys Summer Reading Program. Animals were brought in by Mystic Jungle Educational Facility. On average, the summer program has drawn 65 children to the Trenton Library once a week to hear stories, pet animals and take part in science experiments. The Summer Reading Program will end on Thursday, July 31 with Fizz, Boom, Splash! at 11 a.m. All children are welcome to attend. Goodness Snakes Alive! My fellow citizens of Gilchrist Coun ty, I love this county. I chose to make my roots here and raise my family in this county a long time ago. I spent the early years of my living in other areas of the country, both large com munities and small communities, and I can say without a doubt that this is the best place to live, work and play. I am constantly amazed at the re sources our county has at its disposal. Whether its a sunny Saturday spent at the springs or an afternoon helping one of our young and talented grow into themselves, I am constantly re minded that we are lucky to call this home. I believe that we need to do more to capitalize on these vital re sources and build this place that we all love into a community that thrives now and well into the future. I have been an educator for the last 20 years and I have consistently watched our best and our brightest leave Gilchrist County for more op portunity elsewhere. That cant hap pen. These are young individuals that have so much talent and love this area as much as you and I do. They want to start a family here and they want to work here. Are we doing enough to capture all the resources Gilchrist County has at its disposal to keep this untapped talent? I think we can do more. I have worked as a small business owner in this area for two decades and have witnessed individuals and fellow business owners alike strug gle to capture all that is available to them in this wonderful county. We must make it easier for people to live and do business here. We must uti lize all that is available to us to give people a fair opportunity to succeed. I think we can do more. Because I believe we can do more, do more. I am running for County Commissioner, District Two and I need your support. I am not advocat ing for changing Gilchrist County but preserving the local atmosphere and giving citizens and their families a place that they will continue to love to live, work and play in for a long time to come. I therefore respectfully ask you to support me with your vote for com missioner district two in the general John Yencho seeks County Commission, District 2 seat John Yencho See YENCHO, Page 12 Submitted This year we will have our Caring and Sharing Day on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, from 8 a.m. until noon.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Three THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 By Cindy Jo Ayers Dear Editor, My name is Mitchell Gentry, man ager of Hart Springs. Starting in 2009 I began in earnest to restore the park to its earlier glory that I experienced growing up. Five years later with tre mendous staff, and volunteers the res toration of Hart Springs has become a reality. No sooner was the restoration com pleted than allegations of improper use of a county vehicle, and critical customer complaints, were lodged against Theresa and me by a commis sioner at a public meeting, and then reported in the Gilchrist County Jour nal Without being present, or being asked prior to the meeting for my ac count of the events, unsubstantiated stories were presented. My wife and I not only felt betrayed, humiliated, and angry, but we feel robbed of the year project. No time to address each issue, but shop for the Hart Springs store. We stopped at Bar-B-Q Bills, not Pizza Hut, for a quick dinner before proceed ing to the Dollar Tree, and Walmart, the receipt showing a 9:02 pm check out. Going back to the store at Hart we stocked it, and got home after 10 pm. As for the woman at the pool, she didnt want to walk the trail as report ed and was staying with her child tak ing swimming lessons. She asked if a stepchild, nephew, and another child could walk the trail between the RV park and springs. My response was, We normally ask for an admission fee to use the park, but in your case I want to allow them access. I told her to instruct the children not to enter the springs area or staff would catch them without a wristband. Calling her after reading the article she was appalled, assured me she realized I said they could, wasnt mad, but felt I didnt really want her to. Like everyone, Theresa and I just want to be treated with respect, and be judged fairly for both what we have done well, and what we have not done well. Mitchell Gentry Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, My dad, Mitchell Gentry has been the manager at Hart Springs for a few years now. Anyone whos been there recently and remembers the way the park was before, knows there have The boardwalk has been repaired, the changes are beautiful, and the park is much more disabled accessible. go by and visit if you havent been Why has it been possible to make these changes now and not in the years prior? Just like everything in life, these changes and improve ments cost money. However, what many may not know is that my dad is a licensed contractor, hes also an incredible welder, and has LOTS of experience simply constructing. So, rather than hiring outside contrac tors, my dad did it and saved money. Rather than renting equipment, hir ing outside help, etc., he did it him self or with the other park employees and... thats right, saved money-for the park, for the county, for the tax payers. Thats the thing about my dad, his motivation is not money, its not for his own kudos or glory, its for his fellow man, for his county, and for the springs that he loves. Because my mother, Theresa Gentry, feels the same way-where has she spent the past few years summer holidays i.e. Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July? At Hart Springs Park, VOLUN get paid for the time she spends help ing out at the park, thats out of the fact unknown to many: Hart Springs merchandise and/or food is not or dered and delivered to the park. No, my mom and dad spend their OWN time to go shopping to make sure Hart Springs patrons have supplies, food, and merchandise. Anyone who knows my parents, knows that the information so pub licly aired was not complete. Some thing that has always been taught to me as a child and still rings true... A lie of omission is still a lie. Leah Gentry Myrick Dear Editor, I am writing in regards to the recent article about Mr. Mitchell Gentrys use of the park vehicle. I have to say I thing so much more important to the county, has made the front page, but to send a letter of response. I am no longer a citizen of the county, having moved to the Jack sonville area, but consider it my home and thus know Mr. Gentry. I have to express that in all the years I have been acquainted with him, he has been nothing but a loyal steward to the county and its residents. Even though Ive moved I still go to Hart Springs park. For a long time I avoid ed the park, remembering as a child and teen the park being rundown and ragged. In recent years the park has had a reemergence and has become quite lovely. Ive really become proud of it and so should the citizens. Since Mr. Gentry has taken over the care of the park, it is no longer an embarrassment but something I can tell my friends and family around the Jacksonville area and beyond about. Ive utilized not only the springs, but also the pavilion facilities, being invited multiple times to events and never had an issue. If someone did have an issue then possibly they were dealing with someone who may not have known better, new employees often make mistakes. The issue with the child taking swimming lessons should never have been brought up as an issue with Mr. Gentry, as this is the park rules and fees that are marked, the next thing youll have people wanting to pay for the springs but swim in the pool, foolish com plaining at best, someone must not have anything better to do? For every complaint Im sure you could also hear a dozen, if not more, praise the park, the staff and the management. As for driving the vehicle home, well is this really so much of an is sue? The park hired Mr. Gentry and he is on call to handle the issues of the park EVERY DAY and NIGHT, live on the property, but still needs to check the park facilities, handle emergencies and run errands for the park. Why not stop and pick up a slice of pizza for dinner when youve had a long day, police pick up food in county vehicles all the time, are we going to start regulating that? Person ally Id like to see Mr. Gentry riding around everywhere in that vehicle a waste of taxpayer time. I found the article one sided, ev eryone ganging up on a wonderful member of the county. I wish that the paper would, in future articles, choose to tell both sides of the story, and explore the full truth. It is impor tant that the paper remain an unbi ased voice of the community, letting the residents of Gilchrist fully under stand the issues. Rachel Pevey-Neeld Dear Editor, fault with bad service, bad attitudes, etc., I often forget or take for granted the good and even exceptional service and attitude I encounter daily. Hence this letter, to praise, not complain. I moved to the area seven months ago. I went to the Trenton library to get a card and go there often since I and I do mean always, pleasant and helpful. I always get the sense that their help and service is always genuine and caring. I know that some of the staff are healing from physical ailments and still are cheerful and accommodating. There is also a small, all volunteer library in Bell. The same friendly helpful attitude is encountered there also whenever I stop in. So, a heartfelt thank you and salute Maureen Burdick Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the Hart Springs park manager being questioned on his use of a county ve hicle. This is a witch hunt for someone who has done nothing wrong. If the commissioners would have inquired from Mr. Gentry why he was in they would have found out that he and his wife were shopping for sup plies for the upcoming holiday week end. This was done after hours, after they both had worked all day. Hon estly, you can look around Gilchrist County and see there are other things, that should be on the commissioners agendas. As far as the park goes, it hasnt looked this good in years. The up grades Mr. Gentry has done to the park are constant and his own per sonal equipment is used a lot of the time, saving the park money. He is not using the park home, that home is being rented out by tourists and is booked for the summer. That should say something about people being at tracted to the park. Mr. Gentry is a well educated, licensed contractor. The county should consider them selves lucky to have him, especially on a salary of $38,245.56 a year. He is on constant call for the RV park, his wife volunteers her summer holiday and weekends at the park too, which saves the county money as well. As far as park rules and fees go they are family friendly and the rules are there for our safety. It would be nice to see common sense used in this situation, lets let him use the vehicle and move on to more important mat ters. Lenore Pevey Dear Editor, I have read the recent news about the 2012 scalding death of one of our South Florida inmates. As the wife of a state legislator and a person who has spent countless hours volunteering directly with inmates in the prisons, I share the distress over the allegations surrounding this hor the rest of the story. There is an other face to Corrections that is never presented to the general public. Of the 22,398 employees in the Depart ment of Corrections the vast majority are honorable, caring men and wom en. Ive listened to many inmates tell us like he really cares about us. Ive watched Assistant Warden Jordan and his team as theyve gathered up discarded doors and other materi als to build a hydroponic garden for their inmates so they can learn a skill and have the satisfaction of working with growing plants inside the stark razor wire and hard concrete build ings. In the midst of this horrendous news could we also express appre ciation and respect for these unsung public servants, the correctional of daily for long hours and minimal pay while putting their whole hearts into a job, sincerely longing and working to send prisoners back out of prison as productive citizens?

CERTIFIED FIRM Tommy Parrish 352-317-2688 PAINTING Residential/Commercial Interior/Exterior Drywall Repair CARPET CLEANING Water Restoration Services Tile and Grout Cleaning Pressure Washing psnorthfla@bellsouth.net Dear Editor, Ive known Mitchell Gentry for 33 years, and I asked Mitchell about the allegations in last weeks paper. He said his boss gave him permission to drive the vehicle home. On the day he they were shopping for the Hart Springs store. Theresa spends a lot of time volunteering for the springs, and it galls me to see her generos ity slammed. As to the woman at the pool, Mitchell recounts a very differ ent conversation than the one alleged in the commission meeting. I know that paying for access to the pool does not confer access to the park, because Ive asked Mitchell the same question in the past, and gotten the same answer. I cant help but wonder if the complaint would have been just as loud if Mitchell had granted the woman access to the park. It seems to me that if a commissioner had an issue, he should have brought his unsubstantiated rumors before the commission, when Mitchell was not present to defend himself. More than once weve been visit ing Mitchell in the evening only to have the visit interrupted by a call requiring his presence at the park. Ive also had a ringside seat to his improvements to the park, and the lengths hes gone to in making those improvements cost-effective. I re member the sorry state that place was in before Mitchell arrived; his efforts saved the county boatloads of money, and the end result speaks for itself. Mitchell Gentry is the best thing thats happened to Hart Springs in my lifetime, and to have his name sullied behind his back by a politi cian who never bothered to seek him out before going public is shameful. Tom Wootton Love People. Cook them tasty food. -Penzeys Spices Last week I began the account of a short, three day girls trip to Birmingham, Alabama that our daughter, Carrie and granddaughter, Allie and I took recently. Girls trips are just plain fun, with lots of shopping, eating and driving through historic districts on our agenda. As we drove into Birmingham, I was immediately taken with all the trees. I thought Gainesville had a lot of trees, but nothing compared to Birmingham. The city is situated in a valley surrounded by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. To be honest, we only made it to Homewood, which is right on the edge of Birmingham. Homewood is loaded with lots of cute little shops. Both sides of 18th Street are lined with lovely shops. it was recommended by the owner of the bed and breakfast we had stayed at the night before. Penzeys Spices is a cooks dream shop, with over 250 spices and lots of spice combinations such as Creamy Peppercorn, which is a dressing base or salad spread. Just add the Creamy Peppercorn mix to sour cream and mayonnaise and you have a fresh dressing. The store provided large glass sample canisters with lids for customers to open and smell their spices. This was great marketing because some smelled so good that I just had to have a little jar. Each spice area also had free cards with a recipe using that spice. No kidding, Penzeys is a cooks heaven. Turns out we have a couple Penzeys right here in Florida. Jacksonville, Orlando and Sarasota all have Penzeys Spices. Just to give you a hint of what Penzeys is like, they have the freshest spices, the cinnamon display included cinnamon from China, Vietnam, and Indonesia. They had cinnamon chunks, both hard and soft sticks, cinnamon sugar and Penzeys Cinnamon, which was a blend of cinnamon from four countries. Yes, I could have spent all afternoon in this store. Another favorite store was Alabama Goods, where each and every item in the store was made by an Alabama resident. They had wonderful state shaped cutting boards, local cookbooks, jewelry, pottery, sweet tea dyed t-shirts with Birmingham logos, barbecue sauces, jams, jellies and much more. We walked down both sides of the street shopping the morning away. At lunch we stopped at Urban Cookhouse and had a great lunch. I enjoyed a cup of spicy corn chowder and half a turkey crunch salad sandwich. Their food was really good, but the kicker was their homemade strawberry lemonade. So good. After a fun afternoon shopping we headed south, spending the night in home on Sunday. One other stop I would like to make mention of was in Monticello, Florida just around the corner from the courthouse. In Monticello, you have to circle the courthouse, and the main part of town is located on the courthouse square. The Brick House Eatery is located at 190 N. Jefferson Street, just on the edge of the square and locally owned. Now this restaurant is nothing fancy on the inside, just a small cafe like hundreds of others located throughout the South. But I have to say the food, which mainly consisted of salads, wraps and sandwiches, was extra good. They make homemade ranch dressing, offered great fried green tomatoes, homemade chicken salad, hand-patted burgers and sweet potato fries. So if you are ever passing through Monticello during breakfast, or before 2 in the afternoon, stop by the Brick House Eatery and enjoy a good glass of sweet tea and a delicious meal. --Over the weekend I made the following carrot salad, which is nothing extra fancy, just a simple but good cold salad that is great on these hot summer days. The dressing is a combination of two recipes and its extra good. I think the lemon gives it a fresh taste. Carrot Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing Salad 4 cups grated carrots 2/3 cups raisins 1 cup well drained pineapple Dressing 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/3 cup honey 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons lemon juice Mix salad ingredients then mix or shake dressing ingredients in a glass jar, pour over carrot salad and toss. Chill and enjoy.

A few years ago I was teaching a pre-marital curriculum to a young engaged couple. As we began communication struggles, they shared with me the strategy they planned to use in order to have a successful marriage: Since we are Christians, instead of worrying about how to solve relationship problems, we are just going to pray and trust God that we wont have any! Did I mention this couple was very any of us who have lived more than a few years already know how this strategy will work, yet we may still struggle to understand the reason. The Bible records the words of Jesus on this matter in John 16:33, in this world, you will have trouble. No getting around it trouble is here. In the original Greek language of the New Testament, this word trouble means pressure. Daily we face the pressure to measure up to the worlds standards, pressure to achieve and accomplish and succeed. We also deal with pressure within our relationships: the pressure of wanting our own way, of living up to anothers expectations, and the pressure of getting our own needs met. These are real issues that we face in real relationships. James 1:2-4 speaks of this struggle from a new perspective: Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must mature and complete, not lacking anything. According to these verses, our struggles are actually opportunities for us to mature, for our character to be shaped, and for us to be transformed into the person that God intended us to be. Perseverance means to be steadfast, and in the New Testament it represents the characteristic of a man who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith by even the greatest trials and sufferings. This deliberate purpose in our lives and in our relationships should always be to honor God, and we accomplish this by being the proof that doing life His way works! When we can choose to give; when the way, we can opt what is best for the relationship. These are the tests that develop steadfastness. Rarely does God call us to passively sit by while He works in our life, but rather He gives us opportunities to participate with Him in the work He is doing. In order to respond well to these opportunities, we would all do well to develop some basic relationship skills! In response to the young couples strategy, of course we can pray that bad things wont happen, and sometimes God will answer yes, but when we see how God uses the struggles in our lives, we can better understand why He allows them. It is because our hearts matter! Riverside Baptist Church Homecoming Services Riverside Baptist Church will be having Homecoming Services on August 10, 11:00 a.m., dinner to fol low after.

Changes made to 2014 Farm Bill On Tuesday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack reminded producers that changes mandated through the 2014 Farm Bill require them to have servation and Wetland Conservation Bill relinked highly erodible land conservation and wetland conserva tion compliance with eligibility for premium support paid under the fed eral crop insurance program. Its important that farmers and ranchers taking the right steps to conserve valuable farm and natural sack. This will ensure they remain eligible for crop insurance support. For farmers to be eligible for pre mium support on their federal crop insurance, a completed and signed the FSA. Since many FSA and Natu ral Resource Conservation (NRCS) programs have this requirement, most producers should already have June 1, 2015. When a farmer completes the ADline any additional actions that may be required for compliance with the provisions The Risk Management Agency, through the Federal Crop In surance Corporation (FCIC), manag es the federal crop insurance program that provides the modern farm safety net for American farmers and ranch ers. Since enactment of the 1985 Farm Bill, eligibility for most commodity, disaster, and conservation programs has been linked to compliance with the highly erodible land conservation and wetland conservation provisions. The 2014 Farm Bill continues the re quirement that producers adhere to conservation compliance guidelines to be eligible for most programs ad ministered by FSA and NRCS. This includes the new price and revenue protection programs, the Conserva tion Reserve Program, the Livestock Disaster Assistance programs and Marketing Assistance Loans imple mented by FSA. It also includes the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, the Conservation Steward ship Program, and other conservation programs. FSA recently released a revised USDA Service Centers and online at: www.fsa.usda.gov. USDA will pub lish a rule later this year that will pro vide details outlining the connection of conservation compliance with crop insurance premium support. Produc ers can also contact their local USDA Service Center for information. A listing of service center locations is available at www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/ portal/nrcs/main/national/contact/lo cal/. Tuesdays announcement was made possible by the 2014 Farm Bill. The Farm Bill builds on historic eco nomic gains in rural America over meaningful reform and billions of dollars in savings for taxpayers. Since enactment, USDA has made sig provision of this critical legislation, including providing disaster relief to farmers and ranchers; strengthening risk management tools; expanding access to rural credit; funding criti cal research; establishing innovative public-private conservation partner ships; to help improve quality of life in rural America.

A total of four horse cases County this calendar year. EEE is caused by a virus transmitted by mosquitoes that can also infect mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. The virus can be transmitted from birds to humans by mosquitoes. The virus causes severe illness in humans and horses. There is a vaccination available to protect horses against EEE. Only one of the horses had received EEEV vaccinations. Symptoms of EEE in humans may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness, weakness and confusion. Physicians should contact the local county health department if they suspect an individual may have a mosquito-borne illness. DOH-Levy continues surveillance and prevention efforts and encourages everyone to take basic precautions to help limit exposure to mosquitoes by following the Departments recommendations. DOH-Levy is also recommending horse and livestock owners contact their veterinarian about vaccinations against mosquitoborne diseases. To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you should remember Drain and Cover: DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER skin with clothing or repellent and long pants and longsleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET(N, N-Diethyl-m-toluamide), picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other EPA-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions. COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. DOH continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito virus infections, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, Malaria, and Dengue. Residents of Florida are encouraged to report dead birds via the web site www.myfwc. com/bird/.

Now & Then By Carrie A. Mizell As summer winds down, Allie Claire and I have been busy crossing items off her summer bucket list. Weve made homemade pizza, visited Hart Springs, and most recently we set up a lemonade stand in front of For months, my soon-to-bekindergartener has wanted to have a lemonade stand. I knew it was inevitable when she started bringing me pictures she had drawn with a color crayon of lemonade stands decorated to look like the one she planned to have. talked about her lemonade stand, I realized pretty quickly that Allie didnt care a thing about the money. She just wanted to serve cookies and lemonade to people. Being that mom whos always looking for a teachable moment, I talked to Allie Claire about how nice it would be if she donated the money she raised at her lemonade stand to a good cause. Adam and I were happy to hear that she was more than willing to do so. As kindergarten draws near, Allie Claires excitement grows daily. She was thrilled when stores started putting out school supplies earlier this month, so the Journals annual Back to School Supply Drive seemed the obvious cause. Like her momma, Allie Claire loves the smell of fresh color crayons and adores picking out school supplies, so she was excited over the prospect of taking the money she raised at her lemonade stand and using it to buy supplies for local boys and girls who need them, but cant afford them. Last week, my husband built Allie Claire a lemonade stand out of an old pallet, and on Thursday Allie and I passed out cards at the court house and a few local businesses, advertising her lemonade stand for the following day. MeMe squeezed lemons and made our lemonade and Chris at the Journal mixed us up some pink lemonade. I made chocolate chip cookies. Aunt Lyndsay baked chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies and sugar cookies. And our sweet friend, cherry almond and Kool Aid bars to the cause. I love living in a small town, because anytime you do something like this people really jump in and support you. Its beyond humbling to know how loved you are, and to see it over and over again. I pray my children feel that same love and sense of community growing up in my hometown. I think Allie Claire it melted my heart. (Oh wait, maybe that was just the July heat! Just kidding.) I was so proud of my daughter for braving the hot, humid weather. She sat out in the full sun in front of the Journal for almost two hours. There, she served a hundred glasses of lemonade and some delicious homemade goodies. When we closed up shop and counted the money, Allie Claire had raised $400! I couldnt believe it. I knew a lot of people had come by, from county employees and politicians to babies, and yes, even the FedEx man, who said in all his years of driving a truck he had never seen an actual lemonade stand. On Sunday afternoon we went shopping for all the school supplies, and you would have thought it was Allies birthday. She was so meticulous in picking out pencils, paper, backpacks and the like. She counted every single box of crayons that went in our buggy. I would just like to say thank you to everyone who stopped by Allies lemonade stand last week. Not only did you make my daughters lemonade stand dreams come true, but you also showed how much you care about the children in this community who attend Trenton and Bell schools and dont have the money to buy school supplies. God bless you!
