IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell the body of a man found Sunday afternoon off NW 72nd Court, as 72year-old Joachin Joe Albrecht. According to Lt. Jeff Manning, Medical examiner identies body found Sunday property caretaker was out looking for a missing cow when he came upon the body in a marsh area around 3 p.m. on Sunday. FDLE was called in to assist with the investigation. We have received the preliminary autopsy back, Sheriff Bobby Schultz said on Tuesday, and there is no appearance of foul play. Albrecht, who was known to ride his bicycle to Akins in Bell for breakfast almost every morning, was reported missing last week. The issued a missing person report for Albrecht on July 28, 2014. At that time, Albrecht had last been seen leaving his home outside of Bell on a rusty bicycle. According to Lt. Manning, Albrecht had been known to ride as far away as Lake City, Ocala, High Springs, Branford and Perry. It was not uncommon for Albrecht to become disoriented and not know where he was. This is an unfortunate situation, Sheriff Schultz said. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the victim. After Albrecht was reported missing, the Gilchrist County and searching everywhere they could think to search. Word of his disappearance spread throughout north central Florida as hospitals was found in a very remote area of the county. By Carrie A. Mizell Plans to build a 79,702-square-foot hospital to serve the residents of Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie counties is now back on track, according to a hospital administrator, who spoke before the Gilchrist County Commission on Monday. Frank Schupp, senior vice president at Ameris Health, acknowledged that it has been several years since a ground breaking was held for TriCounty Hospital, which was thought to be constructed on 20 acres located project, which initially called for a 60-bed facility, stalled due to the bad economy and a subsequent lack of available funding. This time we have secured the back, Schupp told the Gilchrist County Commissioners. We have had CBC Real Estate Development based in Kansas City, Missouri in the area twice over the past six weeks and they are committed to $30 million for construction and $15 million for equipment to successfully Financing secured for local hospital develop the project. The project has changed somewhat since its original launch in 2008. Now, Schupp explained the facility will be a 28-bed hospital, rather than 60-bed. The administrator said Tri-County Hospital will offer a wide range of care, from emergency services and surgery, to physical therapy. The only service the hospital will not provide is delivering babies. According to Schupp, Ameris Health and its partners are in the Need application with the Agency on Health Care Administration (AHCA) on August 29, 2014. As the term said, one of the most important items for inclusion are letters of support from area residents. AHCA looks more favorably on original and personal letters of support for any particular project, Schupp stated. For example, a letter of support could include a personal, family or friends experience about not having a convenient, safe, local hospital in the area. Unfortunately there may be stories where a local hospital could have been a lifesaving experience for a friend or loved one. When Tri-County Hospital was initially proposed, residents of the Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties sent in 5,470 letters in support of the project, which according to Schupp, now holds a state record. Schupp is now asking those same residents, and more to write another letter supporting the hospital, so that the project can become a reality. Citizens are asked to write letters on stationary if possible, otherwise include name, address and other contact information. Address the letter to: Frank G. Schupp, Vice President, Suwannee River Community Hospital, Inc., 193 Ventana Blvd., Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459. The Agency on Health Care Administration is expected to request additonal information after subsequently deem the application complete. The Agency will render a decision in December 2014. An approval would mean a late Spring 2015 ground breaking and an anticipated early Spring 2016 opening. The need for this hospital is still there, Schupp said. The timing just wasnt right before. Members of the Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners agreed and voted unanimously to send a letter of support for the project.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Three THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 By Cindy Jo Ayers Johns Comments By John M. Ayers Cloud HALEY for School Board District 1 Re-Elect August 4, 2014 I write this letter in support of Cloud Haley, candidate for re-election in the Gilchrist County School Board elections. I have known Cloud and his family for many years. I taught both of his children, and as a teacher, I have never had any more supportive parents than the Haleys. They always backed me up as the educator and insisted that their children were respectful and did what was expected of them. As a school board member, I feel that Cloud has gone above and beyond what has been expected of him. He has been instrumental in seeing that many good things have been done for our children first, and our teachers. Cloud has strong Christian values, which, to me, is the beginning of bringing to our children the values and education that they deserve. He has proven leadership skills as Christ says, Put others first. Cloud has done this. Cloud has repeatedly seen that the safety of children comes first. He was instrumental in pushing the parking issues at Trenton Elementary School. He helped in adding additional parking at Bell Elementary School. Cloud also pushed for the new handicap seating for both Trenton and Bell football stands that was installed this summer. Cloud also wants teachers to be honored. He has been a server at the Teacher Appreciation lunches that are provided by the board. Cloud is always speaking to teachers, listening to their concerns and checking out every problem and situation that is brought to his attention. He truly listens to those in the school system, wanting to make Gilchrist County the best place for us to raise our children and grandchildren. I could continue to list important things that Cloud has accomplished and helped to accomplish in our school system. But what I feel is most important is that he is an honest, God-fearing man who wants the best for our children, our teachers and staff, and our community. He is doing a wonderful job as a member of the school board. Please consider keeping Cloud as a valuable member of our board. Lucy Coleman Lacey, Ed. S.

During the spring of our life we are in our youth, later we become parents and are raising our children, this is the summer of our lives. The fall of our life is the time that we begin to take care of our parents, this is the season that my brothers and I are in now. Later, like our mother, we will enter the winter of life, the time when someone needs to take care of us. My mother, who does not seem to realize that she is in the winter season of her life, still goes at life with a get it done attitude. Momma is as busy as anyone I know, working all the time at something. One morning, at the end of May, momma was putting up pickles when she turned wrong and broke her femur bone. Yes, momma, at age 85, still makes pickles, and jelly, and cans everything in sight. Off to the hospital she went to have a rod put in her leg. The rod stretches from her hip to her knee. As I sat by her side in the hospital emergency room that day, she was, of course, in a great deal of pain, but at some point she looked at me and said, Well, I guess this means Im going to miss the whole dang canning season. Thats my momma. After staying a week in the hospital we were blessed to get her in Ayers Health and Rehabilitation right here in Trenton. Oh, how I thank Gary Rexroat and the men of Trenton Rotary for working so hard to bring the nursing home to Trenton many years ago. Back in the day, Rotary was an all mens organization and those men worked tirelessly, with our local PA, Gary Rexroat, in the lead. When the nursing home opened in 1982, I was in the early summer of my life with very healthy parents and I did not give the winter of life much thought. I do remember meeting a young woman years ago, soon after Ayers opened. Her name was Jo Buckles. Jo, from the start, had such a winning personality that most every one who met her, remembered her. Jo worked her way right to the top and has been in the lead at Ayers for years now. God just creates some people for a certain job and Jo is just made to keep our communitys nursing home and rehabilitation center running smoothly. Jo is always there to help families as they handle the care of their loved ones. Momma came home this week after two months of rehabilitation. When she went in Ayers, I wondered if she would walk again, but after a great deal of rehabilitation she is up moving well with her walker. I know that she will miss many of the friends she made during her stay. The CNAs are so sweet and always seem to have a few minutes to talk. They stopped to listen to whatever momma had to say, be it a story from her youth or that her pillows need adjusting. The nursing staff was warm and wonderful, trying their best to make everyones stay pleasant. The group down at physical therapy were so upbeat that momma looked forward to going down and working out everyday. In fact, on Sundays there is no therapy and she was a little disappointed that she could not workout. They made rehab upbeat and fun while momma was steadily re-gaining her ability to walk again. staff made the paperwork and check in so easy, it seemed effortless on my part. Truthfully, at the time we were checking momma in I was worried about her and paperwork was not my so sweet answering all my questions and making me feel at ease with the whole process. Trenton should be proud of these two homegrown girls. As the weeks passed, momma began to recover and worked hard at rehabilitation. And then, she got the dream roommate, Mrs. Dorothy Hardee of Bronson. They hit it off and became best buddies. For several momma, with Mrs. Dorthy around to keep her laughing. I could often hear Mrs. Dorothy and momma laughing and talking before I made it to the end of the hall where their room was located. They seemed to keep each others spirits up and have a little fun as they both worked to make it back home. I just wanted to say a big thank you to the wonderful caring people at Ayers Health & Rehabilitation Center. You are a blessing to our area and we are so thankful to have yall caring for our loved ones. I would also like to thank mommas many friends who came by to visit with her. There were a lot of kind Trenton people who just popped in to say hello while visiting their family members at Ayers and momma always enjoyed those visits. No, it is not good to fall and have a broken bone at my mothers age, but our family is so grateful for the care and rehabilitation she has received. Now that she is home Im sure that she will be back to quilting, canning and who knows what else shortly. --I know all the young mothers are beginning to think about school starting soon. The following recipe is good to have in the refrigerator anytime, but it could make an easy, hot homemade breakfast for a school morning. The biscuit mix recipe can be cut in half and it will store in a quart jar in the refrigerator for up to a month. Easy Homemade Biscuit Mix 1 tablespoon salt 3 tablespoon baking powder 1 cup or 2 sticks cold butter back to sifter and add salt and baking powder. Cut the butter into inch mixture until the mix looks like course sand. I used the knife blade in the food processor to do the work of cutting in. If you do not have a food processor, you can use two knives or just your hands to work the butter To make drop biscuits just add 3/4 cups milk to two cups biscuit mix. Drop by rounded tablespoons and brush with melted butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Note: you can add 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese to this recipe to make Cheese Biscuits. To make pancake batter add 1 egg, 1 cup of milk, 1 1/3 cup biscuit mix and 1 Tbsp. of sugar. A Guys Night Out! Saturday afternoon, July 26, turned into quite an evening as three genera tions of Ayers men along with Uncle Jr. slid off into the coastal shallows aboard the Cottonmouth searching for fat, gulf mullet. This was a big deal for us, as we always look for ward to an opportunity to get togeth er to enjoy the saltwater marshes. It is beautiful inshore this time of day and it gets more attractive as the orange sunset sinking from the blue clouds ing. We were a little bit early on our low tide, as we decided to slide around, look, and experience new scenery of this beautiful area of the Big Bend around Cedar Key. As we were leaving the No. 4 Channel boat ramp, Gus told his daddy that he saw a dolphin, (por poise) and he too was busy herding, and feeding on mullet. The water was shallow and the porpoise was quickly searching the deeper cuts in the mud. dropped out of site. We caught many his net, and while he was taking the her mouth and little ones began fall ing out on the deck of the boat. Gus just couldnt believe these 1 small picked up several of the minnows and showed them to the 5 year old before he released them into the water. Gus well as crabs and stingrays. J and Gus were the pilots for the evening as J is a lot more familiar with the Cedar Key marsh than Lloyd Jr. or myself. July 26th was New Moon, which pulled the water out to a minus condi conditions as the less water you have, and thus makes for larger schools of We were riding along as I was looking across to the left; a mullet sky rocketed up out of the water and hit me on the right arm. I must have jumped in shock as Gus and J both on the shoulder and fell into the boat. We always appreciate those free ones when they jump in the cooler. I pulled out a spotlight to give Gus some light as night was upon us. J would shine the shallows and along the waters edge. As he lit-up the dark ness in this one area, there was a large swirl up near the oyster bar before a believed this was a shark as it swam toward the deep water. Jr. and I both agreed the shark was between 5 and 6 feet in length. We were thankful that neither one of us threw our nets on this swirl, because the shark would have destroyed a good cast net. gray missiles of mullet would launch into the air when we would pass over a bar or shallow area. Gus and his daddy were sitting up above us driving the boat when the youngster yelled, Pap. I turned around to see a mullet had jumped and landed in a wire box under their seat. The small get back into the water. We had a good time, the weather was good and we caught a mess of mullet. This is the time of year when the mullet are delicious. Of course, Cin dy Jo and I both enjoy eating the giz puppies, carrot salad and of course sweet pickles. We both enjoyed this meal on Sunday. By Carrie A. Mizell Youve heard of trapping nuisance animals that get into your trash cans, but have you ever considered trap ping mosquitoes? Utilizing mosquito traps provided by the Florida Department of Agri culture, Gilchrist County will soon begin trapping mosquitoes in an ef fort to identify mosquito populations throughout the county. David Peaton, emergency man agement director, explained to the Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners on Monday that the county cannot receive state or federal funds to cover the costs of mosquito spraying without baseline data. As was the case in 2012 when Tropical Storm Debby soaked the gulf coast of Florida and brought with it a tremen dous spike in mosquitoes. The Board voted unanimously on Monday to enter into an agreement with the Florida Department of Ag riculture and begin trapping mosqui toes. Gilchrist County will conduct trapping operations with equipment provided by the Florida Department of Agriculture once a month, between April and September of each year in order to establish a base line mosqui to population for the county. A handful of traps will be set up in different areas throughout the county. According to Peaton, the traps will be set in an out of the way area over night. Each trap will have a container the dry ice gives off gasses it produc es carbon monoxide which attracts County will trap mosquitoes the mosquitoes. On the top of the trap there is a light and a small fan at tached to a one way valve and when the sun goes down the light comes on to attract the mosquitoes and ac tivate the fan. When the mosquitoes get close, the fan sucks them into the collection container, where they are unable to get out due to the one way valve. Once the mosquitoes are trapped, a county employee will pick up the trap the following morning. The mos quitoes will then be placed in a cooler Florida Department of Agriculture lab in Tallahassee. The lab will iden tify and count the mosquitoes, then provide the information back to the county. The only cost to the county will be the cost of dry ice and shipping fees. The Florida Department of Agricul ture will provide all costs associated cation at the Florida Medical Ento mological Lab. They will also train personnel on how to trap and ship the mosquitoes. Once the mosquitoes get to the lab, the Florida Department of Agriculture has two weeks to provide lab results back to Gilchrist County. I feel like this is an important pro gram as it will allow Gilchrist County the mosquito population throughout the county, Peaton said. It will also allow for a quicker and more effec tive reimbursement process during times of disaster when related to FEMA provided mosquito control. Collecting mosquitoes will give Gilchrist County baseline mosquito population data that will enable the county to get FEMA provided mosquito control.

For more information 463-1562 Wouldnt it be great if we could other people?? Since we are all prone to try this, you (just like me) have likely discovered that trying to change somebody is a lot like spitting in the wind: it doesnt work, and it can get real messy! In fact, we are even limited in our ability to produce lasting change in ourselves, so why on earth do we ever think we can change someone else? The boundary of power makes clear what we have power over and where we have no power. It is critical for us to understand that we have no power over the attitudes and actions of other people. No matter how much we want to, we cannot make them more mature or responsible. We also cannot change another persons character, or stop their bad habits, no matter how obvious it is to us that they need to. What we do have is the power to producing an effect without force or a things that we often do to try and get someone to change: repeat ourselves over and over (better known as nagging), criticize, scream and yell, bully, threaten, withdraw and give the silent treatment. Now think about someone doing these things make you want to listen and cooperate? Me neither. We all are more likely to respond to even if we know they dont approve of our choices or behavior. Instead we can draw a boundary by saying problems in our relationship. Is there some way I can help you? I love you, but if this behavior continues our and to understand the consequences if they continue their irresponsible behavior. This may mean not being included in certain activities or a distancing in the relationships. It also gives the freedom to choose to change reconnected to the relationship. The problem is that we spend so much time and effort trying to change someone with ways that hurt our lose what we did have power over to start with. The most important part of the boundary of power is gaining wisdom, so that we dont spend time and energy where we have no power The very familiar Serenity Prayer (calm and without worry, stress or disturbance) to accept the things I cannot change (have no power over), the courage (the ability to or pain without being overcome by fear or being detoured from a chosen course of action) to change the things I can (that I do have power over), and the wisdom to know the difference. (often the biggest issue!) The Bible tells us in James 1:5 that If anyone lacks wisdom, they should ask God, who gives generously to all given to him. This means that we can bring our problems to God and ask the question: Do I have power to change something in this situation, and if I do, where? When we do, He will generously give us wisdom Why would God do this? He wants us to have strong, healthy relationships. Because our hearts really do matter.

Submitted Superintendent Rob Rankin is happy to announce that the Trenton High School Engineering Academy has been awarded a grant through Duke Energy for a collaborative Water Quality Improvement project. The grant, in the amount of $9,500.00, will allow the academy students to work with and research information across multiple disciplines, including chemistry, math, mechanical science, and physics. The intent of the project will be to develop an enhanced understanding of how inorganic suspended solids, such as sand particles, could be effectively removed from existing slurry of dairy animal waste while retaining the suspended organic materials. The project will provide a challenging, hands-on learning environment for all of the students involved. The students will develop a simple, cost effective process to remove the suspended inorganic sand particles Duke Energy supports THS Engineering Academy through Water Quality Improvement Grant from the waste slurry and enable it to be processed into a viable feed source for (1) vermiculture or (2) processed further into an organic, slow release form of soil supplement. Academy Coordinator Mr. Don Barselou has collaborated with Mr. Don Bennick from the North Florida Holsteins Dairy and Mr. Bill Martin from the BHS Academy of Agriscience and Natural Resources. Duke Energys Mr. Denny George presented the Gilchrist County School District with a check in July, so students will be able to work on this project in the upcoming school year. In August, we will also be applying for matching funds to support this project through the Consortium of Floridas Education Foundations, explains the districts Director of Resource Development, Patricia Powers. It is anticipated that those funds will be awarded in the fall to expand this project even further. Superintendent Rob Rankin is appreciative of the continued support of Duke Energy. Advanced STEM opportunities for students are important to the overall education that we provide. Rigorous and relevant learning is vital for college and career readiness.

Page Twelve THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2014 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL PERSONALIZED SCHOOL SUPPLIES Pencil Boxes Folders Notepads More Gilchrist County Journal 352-463-7135 Submitted This summer, the THS cheer program has accomplished some amazing things. For starters, THS team. The team ranges from 6th grade all the way up to 12th grade. The team has worked hard with the time allowed before they have to stop for their off-season. Their practices will pick back up in October. The programs varsity and junior varsity spirit team just came back from UCA Embry Riddle camp in Daytona. The varsity team came back with a leadership award, a superior on their game day material, and the whole program also was presented the top banana spirit award the third night of camp. At the camp, they hold tryouts for an All-American cheer team. Thousands of cheerleaders and dancers try out for the team, but only 12% are chosen. This year at camp, Gabby Liddell and Kylie Johnson made the team. They have the opportunity to go to London to cheer in the New Years Parade. Another award UCA gives out is the pin it forward award. Before camp starts, each instructor is given camp, the camp instructors look for cheerleaders who show leadership, spirit, commitment, kindness, and/or motivation. At the end of day two, each instructor gives their two pins to the participants who meets one or more of the reasons why America needs cheerleaders. At the end of the third day, the pinned cheerleaders will give their extra pin to a cheerleader on a different team who also showed those values. The cheerleaders from the THS Varsity cheer team who got pinned were seniors; Morgan Johns, Kylie Johnson, and Briana Whatley. All the teams have been working very hard and will do great things throughout their cheer seasons! Trenton Cheerleaders Gabby Liddell and Kylie Johnson were All-American winners.
