Mizell Bryce Folds is just like many 6th grade boys at Trenton MiddleHigh School, he likes science and socializing, and dreams of playing trumpet in the Tiger Marching Band one day. Unlike his 11-year-old peers, Bryce has Cystic Fibrosis. He was diagnosed with the life-threatening genetic disease when he was just 3 years old. After years of being sick we Bryces mother explained. As heart breaking as the news was to hear that Bryce had a genetic disease that has no cure, we as his parents were Today, Bryces parents Tim and Heather Folds say they are blessed that Bryce currently only has to take six prescriptions each day, along with vest therapy, which requires that he spend an hour to an hour and a half in a vest each day. Bryce takes Creon 24000, three with each meal and two with snacks. This means he takes up to 18 pills a day just in one of his six prescriptions. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States have Cystic Fibrosis. Of those, 75 percent are diagnosed by the age of 2. Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that people inherit from their parents. In people with Cystic Fibrosis, a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down food and absorb vital nutrients. In the 1950s, few children with Cystic Fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Since then, tremendous progress in understanding and treating Cystic Fibrosis has led to dramatic improvements in the length and quality of life for those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Many people Local family works to nd a cure for Cystic Fibrosis with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. Shortly after Bryce was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis his family formed the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Since its inception, Bryces organization has raised $12,000 to help fund Fibrosis. A medication that treats Bryces form of CF is on its way to the said. This medication targets the Since learning that their son has a life-threatening disease, the Folds family has done a lot of praising God. Bryce has only been hospitalized once since his diagnosis and that is certainly cause for celebration. His pulmonary doctors want to know our secret to having a healthy CFer and our answer is always the same, prayers and lots of chocolate a testimony of prayers. He has people as far away as Hawaii and South Tim and Heather have three sons, Bryce, 11, Blake, 6, and Braden, 4. Blake is a carrier of Cystic Fibrosis just like Tim and Heather. When he out if she is a carrier of the Cystic Fibrosis gene as well. Braden is not a carrier of Cystic Fibrosis, nor does he have the genetic disease. With a little help from his mom, Bryce designed a great looking t-shirt that is now being sold online. All proceeds from the sale of this shirt will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Bryces honor. Buy a shirt and wear it to help raise awareness. Heres the website, http://teespring.com/teambryce How you can help Bryce Tim and Heather Folds are pictured with their sons, Bryce, Blake and Braden. Team Bryce is working toward their goal, that CF will no longer stand for Cystic Fibrosis, but rather Cure Found. By Carrie A.

By Cindy Jo Ayers The Trenton City Commissioners ity of the City during the August 28, regular meeting and budget work shop. City Manager Taylor Brown re viewed the upcoming budget, which goes into effect October 1. Brown reminded the commissioners of the very favorable audit report that they recently received. He also explained that an anticipated total of $280,439 will be returned to the budget because it was not used during the 2013-14 budget year. Seth Hastings, account adminis trator for the City of Trenton, made a proposal that the City of Trenton change City employees work-week hour work days each week. Hastings went through a Power Point presentation showing all the week bring. Hastings said the City could implement a computerized pay ment system and a drop box for wa ter-sewer and garbage bill payments, this would mean that city hall being closed every Friday would not incon venience city residents who pay their bills at city hall on Fridays. Hast ings went on to tell commissioners that electric power would be saved by shutting down city buildings an extra day each week and during the hiring process it would help recruit better employees if the candidates knew they would only be working four ten hour days. Hastings also said that there would less absenteeism and workers would be more productive on the job if the City Commission would vote to change the work week City considers 4-day work week to four 10 hour days. Commissioner Everitt Heaton stat ed that he would be in favor of a four day 10 hour work week. Commissioner Tim Kinsey asked about paid holidays on Mondays. He questioned whether City employees would still get Friday off on weeks when a Monday holiday is observed. Kinsey asked if the City would pay employees for a 10 hour holiday on Monday as well as give them Friday off. And would this mean that on weeks when there is a Monday holi day that Trenton City Hall would only be open three days, Kinsey asked. Mayor Glen Thigpen stopped the discussion of a four day work week before it proceeded further saying, I dont think this is the appropriate Thigpen said this matter can be brought back up at a later date and discussed then, rather than in the middle of a budget workshop. There was also some discussion of Trentons aged infrastructure and the need for new waterlines throughout the city as well as some sewer work that needs to be done involving lift stations.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Three THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 By Cindy Jo Ayers Now & Then By Carrie A. Mizell Poll of the Week Go to gilchristcountyjournal.net to vote on this weeks poll question: Do you think the City of Trenton should go to a four day work week? Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, Well this primary election is over, and I, and I am sure others are glad of it. I have never seen a nastier local campaign. I lost a lot of respect for people that I thought were intelligent and would not stoop to that sort of politics. We have another election coming up, and I want to offer some advice to the candidates. Let us see you involved in the com munity before you decide to run for election and expect us to believe you other person did wrong, tell us what us buzz words and slogans but facts and actual plans to make this a better community, and improve our quality of life. Show us where you are go ing to get the funding for these plans without raising taxes and fees which hurt the average citizen. Run your campaign honestly leaving out spite for which you have applied. Richard Esseck Bell Dear Editor, I moved to gorgeous magical Gilchrist County from a big city out west at the beginning of this year. I have met nothing but welcoming friendly people. Total strangers have helped me out. My neighbors are lovely. Everyone seems to agree that beautiful, quiet, ever-changing, and delightful in many ways. No one thinks it should be messier or less at tractive. And yet, somehow the roadside that fronts my property is constantly littered with trash! out of their vehicle, or allow their off the back, or out the windows Every few days I dress in my most tucked into the tops of my socks, and tennis shoes. I wear this to pick up trash along the roadside. The idea is if people are laughing, at least I know they SEE me and are less likely to run me over. The trash in Gilchrist County is found any used syringes or dispos able diapers or other less-mention able items, but there sure are a lot of food and drink containers, items of styrofoam, plastic, metal, cello phane and glass, especially. One day I found a stainless steel ladle and a quarter and an aluminum measuring cup, all nestled among the weeds. What is most astonishing, is the fact that the trash that ends up on my roadside often contains names and addresses and other information that maybe should not be public. Iris, I picked up your invoice for services rendered. Janis, your box from Avon ended up in front of my house. Jen No! They are going to kill some local businesses that can not compete with the selection and prices! More unemployment, more empty build chants, their prices will go up! Bad for Gilchrist County! Jill Johnson development for Gilchrist County is never a bad thing. Everyone in the county shops at Wal-Mart in that money here in Gilchrist. Bring them on in. David Biddle of Gilchrist County, it may be a good idea. Personally, I believe Walmart has become one of the biggest mo ally shop there when there are other alternatives. I prefer to buy products from the U.S.A. instead of China. Philip Fudge does. Dianna Bryant They need to consider what this town. I also understand Best Drugs is to town. Georgia Crosby about that because they are putting a Dollar General Market also in Tren ton...Really, why do we need a WalMart Express in Trenton? -Tisha Kyser Sears I am excited to be able to buy good milk in Trenton and it will shave Kelsie Aman I cannot stand Walmart. I am all for bringing in new businesses, but did it have to be Walmart? Ugh. -Stephanie White We heard a lot of feedback about Walmart Express this week. Heres what people are saying on our Facebook page: highly pleasing. This week I would like to share dar Key. Bake My Day, Bakery and Deli is a very neat little home-owned bakery, sandwich and salad shop. Brenda, the owner, is a Cedar Key girl and she whips up great cupcakes lime and mocha, not to mention all the cookies and bars that come out of her oven. If you have a sweet tooth be sure to stop by when visiting the island. My favorite thing on the menu is a BLT on whole wheat with a side of really good potato salad. The potato salad at Bake My Day reminds me of the wonderful old Heron Restau rant that used to make the best Greek salad years ago. I often think of Ms. Coupe and her amazing food. Also if you are a fan of iced coffee Bake My Day makes up a really rich mixture that is not too far from being I had an iced coffee the other day and we had lots of energy for sewing the rest of the morning. If you happen to spend the morn ing in Cedar Key anytime soon you can slip into Bake My Day for break fast or lunch. They stay open until 3 pm. I found this charming little restau rant while visiting the local Cedar Key quilt shop, known as the Salty Needle. Several friends and I went down last week to visit the quilt shop, which happens to be in the same a great, relaxing lunch on the porch. The weather was beautiful and as al to spend the day. Bake My Day is located at 434 2nd Street the main street of Cedar Key with all the quaint old two story buildings. For dessert at Bake My Day we chose Mexican Cheesecake and recipe but instead came home and looked online for it. This might not our crew really liked it. What I like most was that it was so easy to make. This recipe would be wonderful at a family get together, reunion, dinner on the grounds or even, as we like to say in the South, as funeral food. The recipe I found online and tested was called Sopapilla Cheese Cake, a sopapilla is a crispy Mexican The amounts given in this recipe are for a 8x8 pan or Pyrex dish but you can double the ingredients and make a 9x13 size. The 8x8 size yield have to be too big. Sopapilla Cheese Cake Bar 1 8-ounce cream cheese, room tem perature 1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 package of Pillsbury crescent rolls (original or butter) 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 tablespoons sugar Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8 pan or baking dish. Open the crecent rolls and seal the perforated marks in one sheet of dough and place in the bottom of baking dish. Beat the cream cheese until light and beat until smooth and creamy. Spread cream cheese mixture over the dough. Open the second roll of dough and crimp the perforated marks closed ing. Pour melted butter over dough evenly. I used a brush to even out the butter. Mix cinnamon and sugar sprinkle over the butter. Bake at 350 from 30-40 minutes. Cool in dish un til room temperature. Chill in fridge for several hours before serving. This dessert is good the next day also. McElroy Thank you for your support on August 26.

Earlier this week a friend of mine sent me a link to a blog post titled face. My friend, who also has a daughter in kindergarten this year, You see, for some time now my heart has been burdened by the lack of decent clothing out there for little girls. Trashy clothes abound, but lared sweater for church without committing three weeks to the search effort. Kindergarten has been enlighten ing, with a passel of boy crazy little tribute it to our oversexualized media lebrities. Miley Cyrus being the fan tastic role model that she is...eek!

Having my baby girl dressed in a cot ton gown, wrapped in a soft light pink minky blanket and put into my arms know was possible. I pull the sweet bundle close to my face and breathe her in. I nuzzle her cheeks, I run my hair, and I am overwhelmed. I spend the next year of her life putting her in soft patterns, rose buds and pastels, whites, creams, and pinks. I spend a fortune on bows as big as her head. And even though she kicks them off socks onto her feet and work bal let slippers on. She wears smocked dresses with puffy sleeves and holi day scenes embroidered on her col lar. Gradually, she becomes bow trained as my sister puts it, and sits still while Mommy clips a light pink grosgrain bow into her hair, and leaves it there all day. She learns to enough to actually play outside-rid ing bikes, scrawling her name across the driveway in sidewalk chalk, and sisters, all three pretending to be fair daughters in particular-it could be any their lives were all nearly identical.

But now, she has reached mag mind boggling has happened. I walk into the Girls section to see what I can scrounge up, but as I make my into a rave. There is so much glitter, air brushing, neon colors, mesh, spa cropped tops that I have to actually look up at the sign above my head Yep, Girls. I stand there in com plete disbelief and denial. Maybe if I stand here long enough with my eyes and racks of cotton play dresses, ruf backside, and sweet little rosebud tee shirts. But no. I open my eyes again and attempt to focus. Okay, there has to be something here. Anything. I turn and immediately feel my throat tighten as I try to keep myself from dry heaving right there in the middle of the store. The bathing suit rack. I why are there leopard print and hot pink string bikinis in the Girls sec BUSINESS WEARING STRING BIKINIS. Okay, yeah, I said it. And I mean it. I turn around to see the most pink, mesh shirt on a hanger next to like a total Mommy psycho and walk away feeling defeated, and so so con fused. I feel rage crawling up from my stomach. I want to tell off whatever mean, do these designers have kids? Better question-Have they ever even seen a child? Do they know that they ups? If you have questionable taste as care. But we have an obligation to our daughters to dress them like little girls while they are still little. led anyone to believe that a child that wear? Is there some imaginary mile little girls, not tweens. Where are the ing dresses? My 5 year old still wears princess dresses nearly every day. fairy wings and tutus. So, I ask you, why would I dress her the same as a girl more than twice her age?! Why is she banished to a department that padded training bras?! I have a 5 year old that still wears pigtails, bows in her hair, and loves nothing more than a dress she can twirl in. My daugh ter, my sweet, innocent, little girl, is not a runway model. She is not a tiny adult and she is no where near being a tween. My solution? Well, I buy the least expensive and least trashy of the trash that is available. And I let her play in it. Usually its a t-shirt with some awful design on the front, covered in peace signs and glitter. And when she comes in and its covered in grass Instead of spending hundreds of dol lars on clothes from stores hell bent on making my 5 year old look 18, I have become enthralled in the world understand why people pay more money for clothes for their kids! I also understand why some people in vest in a sewing machine! It seems so old fashioned today to actually make your own clothes for your daughters, but guess what? I totally get it. The women that own these online shops? much of it is so expensive and why auction sites are so popular. If we stop buying the garbage being geared boutiques. We have to stop buying the lie. They will catch on. Its not okay to dress little girls like teenagers. Its not okay to train our daughters to use their bodies to get attention. We have to change the way we teachI want to use the clothes they wear to get anyone to look at them.

According to these sources, money is the number one relationship killer. On one hand, I have to agree: family members quarrel over money and go years without speaking; friendships end over loans not given or not repaid, and marriages experience huge struggles when both sides arent working together toward other hand, lets be careful to see the real problem here: money itself is amoral: it can be a blessing or curse, depending on its use. It is the nature of the person using the money that determines its morality. The Bible speaks often to the issue of money because it is a fact of life: we need money to live. I Timothy 6:7-10 records some basic truths: For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil I once heard a joke about a greedy, miser of a man who hoarded money his entire life and was bound and determined to take it with him when he died. He instructed his wife to place his wealth in the casket when he passed away. He wanted no one, including her, to enjoy his money after he was gone. After his funeral, friends and family were curious to know whether she carried out his wishes; Of course, she replied, but instead of handling all that cash, it was much more convenient to write him a check! One thing is for sureyou cant take it with you! quietness of mind; satisfaction. issues, isnt quietness of mind the the case if our struggle includes other people! But notice the last part of this scripture: it tells us that the root of the problem is not money, but the love of money is where all kinds of problems begin: Constantly overextended on A workaholic with no time for your temptations and traps that plunge men into ruin. One of the biggest traps here is to think that more money will solve these problems. In Luke 16:10 the Bible says, Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much If the way we are handling the money we have been trusted with is damaging the relationships in our lives, there is a good chance that more of it wont help. In his book Money Answers, author Dave Ramsey agrees with Gods Word that contentment is the He writes, Happiness is sold to us as an event or thing, and consequently our bought with money, but happiness cannot. In other words, contentment is not found in gathering more stuff, but in our relationship with God and others. Changing our focus on how we pursue happiness will ultimately our life for the better. After all, in the end it will not be our checkbook, but our hearts that matter. 1/2 price plants at Mission in Action Community Character Education Forum By Geneva Cornwell Education was the theme chosen for the 9th annual Character Community Forum. Hosted by the Character Council of Gilchrist County, the event was held on Thursday, Aug. 28 at Otter Springs Lodge. Attendees heard presentations from Todd Bryant, who led the Trenton High School baseball team to a 2013 state championship victory. Bryant spoke on the need to relate to teens in such a way as to give them opportunities to display good character and teamwork. Mrs. Kathy Weaver, guidance counselor at Bell Elementary School, related her many years of experience in the school system. Mrs. Weaver spoke on the importance of children having good character as they mature and grow in relationships with each other. Dr. Geneva Cornwell, director of Victory Christian School, was assisted by retired Army Sgt. Maj. Major Stroupe. The two explained how animals in nature teach humankind of the different aspects of moral character. Door prizes were awarded to six lucky ticket holders. The color scheme for the event was red, black and white, and reminiscent of an old fashion classroom. Each table displayed an array of different items which represented the theme of good character. As a memento, attendees were urged to take home anything on the table they wished. Council Event Chair Suzi Wright served as coordinator of the event.

FREE ESTIMATES ON REPLACEMENT $55 First Time Client Service Call The city manager explained that Mittauer and Associates, Inc. are compiling information about the needed water system improvements in hopes that the city will receive grant funding for the projects. According to Mittauers estimates, the city needs over $6 million to fund the work that needs to be done to the water system including water line re placement and about $4 million for the sewer collection system rehabili tation. The city manager explained that he feels the waterlines are the most criti cal need at this time. Brown reported that about 65 percent of the water the city is pumping is being lost to leak ing water lines. Commissioner Randy Rutter also mentioned that the water meters in parts of the City need replacing. Rut ter suggested the older meters might not be accounting for the actual amount of water being used. The 2014-15 budget for water from last years budget. At this time, the water and sewer budget is set at $1,139,387. This budget amount in cludes a 2.1 percent rate increase planned for the 2014-15 budget year. In 2013-14, 17 percent of the Citys water and sewer fund budget was re turned, which equals $181,821. After the commissioners discussed the work that needed to be done, they instructed the city manager to come back with a budget for the water and sewer department that includes a 5 percent increase in rates at the next meeting, which will be held Septem ber 9. At that meeting the commissioners budget for the upcoming year. Com missioner Rutter said that he felt that increasing the water and sewer rates was the fairest way to spread the cost throughout the city so everyone pays a little and the larger burden will not be paid by the 30 percent of taxpay ers who actually pay property taxes in the city. Rutter went on to say he felt it was unfair to raise the ad valorem millage rate to obtain the extra funds needed for the infrastructure work because so few actually pay taxes. The work in progress budget for the citys general fund is based on 3.5 mills which would make the new budget about $1,018,393, up from last years budget of $977,615. Commis sioners did not seem to be in favor of raising the ad valorem tax rate from 3.1055 to 3.5 mills. So the commis sioners requested that Brown come back with a budget using the current ad valorem rate of 3.1055 at the Sep tember meeting. Brown announced during the meet ing that all employees of the City would be receiving 2.1 percent raise and several employees had received merit raises because of their job per formance. Mayor Glen Thigpen passed the gavel to Vice Mayor Randy Rutter during the meeting to make a motion to give Police Chief Tracy Taylor a $2,000 raise. Chief Taylors annual salary increased from $36,000 to $38,000. The mayor said he believed Chief Taylor had earned the raise and that he was pleased with his perfor mance in the position. It has been a good transition and our police department has a good working relationship with the county sheriffs department, Thigpen said. The raise for Chief Taylor was passed unanimously. The Commission also agreed to give City Manager Taylor Brown a three percent raise. Browns annual salary is currently $54,075. At the meeting, each commissioner assured the city manager that they are pleased with his management of the City of Trenton.

The Bulldogs made progress but still need improve ment as Head Coach Joey Whitting ton explained following a tough loss. I feel like we improved this game compared to last week but we still have a long way to go. We have to get in better shape so that we can play As the coach alluded to, condi tioning played a major role in a tight game in which the Bulldogs had a lead for a while. There may be a few more high knees and bear crawls at practice this week for the young Bulldogs squad. It wasnt all bad for Bell though, after all this is a team that has as many sophomores as seniors and a solid group of junior players that the Bulldogs just didnt show up until the 4th quarter. This week the Bull dogs started out strong, taking it right to the chin of a gritty Warriors team, but they faltered late and the Warriors were quick to seize the momentum in what was a tightly contested game. Although the game will be recorded in the loss column the Bulldogs have a lot of positive energy going to this weeks practices. A lot of the energy will be focused around #34 Cisco Lopez, a freshman linebacker that led the Bulldogs de fense with 13 tackles and whos play is an example of the value the young er players have on this Bulldog team. Other notable players on the defen sive side of the ball include #12 Zach Morgan a junior cornerback who snagged an interception in the second quarter at the Bulldogs 15 yard line which surely prevented Brookwood from putting points on the board. Also, #71 Austin Aderholt, a junior tackles and proved his toughness in the trenches. The offense this week was led by #4 Randy Oslager, WR/DB who spent most of his time at the RB po sition. Oslager broke loose for a 35 yard touchdown run and had a total and contributed 4 tackles on defense. performance Friday night. The offensive play of the game belongs to #15 Von Woodby a se nior running back who took a second quarter handoff 60 yards to put the Bulldogs in scoring position and then pounded the ball over the goal line moments later. The Bulldogs ground game was hampered by the rainy conditions but they found some room to run this week to the tune of 201 yards on the ground. The next test for this Bulldog team will come Friday Sept. 5th at 7:30 p.m. at the Bulldog Stadium in Bell. The Bulldogs will host the P.K. Yonge Blue Wave. (Gainesville) The Blue Wave are a 3A District 2 team, that are coming off a forfeit loss to Williston. Bulldogs fall to Warriors By John M.
