IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell week to discover that a Bell man shot and killed his daughter and six young grandchildren, before turning the gun on himself. Don Spirit, 51, reportedly called 911 around 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18 and told a dispatcher that he had killed his family members and would scene, but it was too late. Don Spirit to arrive at his home, which is located at 2550 NW 29th Terrace, Bell. The body of Spirits daughter, Sarah Spirit, 28, and her children: Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11, Kylie Kuhlmann, 9, Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8, Destiny Stewart, 5, Brandon Stewart, 4, and Alanna Stewart, 3 months, were found. In his 23 years of law enforcement, Sheriff Bobby Schultz said he has found things that can be explained and things that cant. On many levels, Schultz said, this event cannot be explained. My heart breaks for them, Schultz said. But I know beyond a doubt that those children were met when they passed through the veil, by some loving people who passed before them; they probably brought them to the most beautiful playground you can imagine where they are playing on teeter totters and merry go rounds that are made of gold. The Gilchrist County Sheriffs home a number of times since the family moved to Gilchrist County. Community suffers great loss Bell man kills daughter and 6 grandchildren before committing suicide Don Spirit was a convicted felon. At the time of her death, Sarah Spirit was on probation. Her brother and the two fathers of her children are also in prison. In 1998, Don Spirit was convicted of felony possession of marijuana. In 2001, he served three years in prison after accidentally shooting and killing his 8-year-old son while on a hunting trip. As a convicted felon, it was illegal for Spirit to own a gun. His criminal record also includes a multiple arrests for domestic battery, and DUI. He has a lot of problems, but he would never hurt somebody intentionally, Sarah Spirit said of her father, Don Spirit. Sarah made the statement in a letter she wrote asking a judge to have mercy on her father, after he was arrested for domestic battery. She was 38 weeks pregnant with her second child Kylie when her father got violent with her after she told him she could not pay the taxes on his property north of Bell. Sarah stated, My father is in jail and I am the cause of that, me and my family does. According to Sarah, her father was a good person who just had a lot of emotional problems after accidentally killing his son in 2001. I love my father, he is the only family I have and he is a big part of mine and my childrens life, Sarah stated. Ever since my brother died my dad hasnt been emotionally or mentally stable. In the letter, which was written by Sarah Spirit in November 2008, she told a judge that she forgave her father for getting violent with her and planned to stand by his side to help him through his problems. The death of Sarah and her children brought tears to the eyes of many in the community, who banned together in the wake of such a tragedy. On Friday, Governor Rick Scott visited Gilchrist County to offer his condolences. And later in the day, members of the community dressed in white for the annual Bell/ Trenton football game. Not only did the wearing of white by the fans speak to unity in the community, but it also honored the innocence of the children who died much too early. Two thousand dollars was collected at the football game to assist the family with burial expenses. See BELL TRAGEDY page 12 Sarah Spirit and her children Kaleb, Kylie, Johnathon, Destiny, Brandon, and Alanna will be missed. Geiger is Cattleman of the Year By Cindy Jo Ayers Bart Geiger was named Gilchrist County Cattleman of the Year on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at a dinner held at Otter Springs. Bart and his wife, Gina, along with their three daughters Katie, Shelby and Madison moved from Homestead, Florida to Gilchrist County in 2004. The Geiger family lives on a small farm with about 60 head of cattle, the majority being Brangus. Bart enjoys working with his cows, along with making improvements to the herd by having Earl Jones a select few every year. Bart enjoys spending time outdoors and grew up spending many summers and weekends on his grandfathers cattle ranch in Yeehaw Junction that at one time consisted of over 5,000 acres. Today, the Geiger family is very active in 4-H and FFA. The girls have shown market steers every year that were born and raised on the family farm in Gilchrist County. John Rance Thomas presented a plaque to Bart Geiger and his family at the Cattlemans Dinner last week.

Mizell Elementary School slipped out the walked almost to State Road 26 before being spotted. The 6-year-olds mother attended Procedure change after 1st grader tries to walk off TES campus the Gilchrist County School Board meeting last week and listened intently as the incident was discussed. Apparently the student hurt his at Trenton Elementary School. A classmate walked the child to the buddy was sent back to class, while the injured child received treatment. The childs mother was called and after she spoke with the nurse and the child, it was determined that the child should return to class. The nurse sent the child back to class, but instead of walking through the main building and back to his classroom, the child turned right and walked out the front entrance doors to the school. The school receptionist had gotten up from her seat at the front desk and was putting messages inside teachers boxes when the child walked out. He reportedly walked down the sidewalk, through the front parking lot and was on the Greenway Trail almost to State Road 26 when he was found. A school employee was returning to campus when she noticed the boy standing on the side of the road. A vehicle was pulled over at the time and the driver was talking to the boy. Later, the boy told his mother the driver of that vehicle was trying to talk him into getting into the vehicle. When the school employee pulled in she took charge of the student and returned him to the school. The childs mother was immediately believed that the child was attempting to walk home from school. Members of the Gilchrist County School Board praised Lori Summers, the school employee who spotted the child and brought him back to the See TES STUDENT page 4 My name is Cheryl Nekola, and I have lived in Fanning Springs for 25 years.

Every time I hear the name Bear Bryant I think of daddy. I came along a little later than my two older brothers. In fact my oldest brother was a senior the year I started to school and just a couple of years later my other brother graduated from high school. Everyone left home soon after graduation and it left me to hang out with my dad who had retired from middle school. We followed Alabama because of Bear Bryant, and we watched the Miami Dolphins and were big fans of Larry Csonka. Daddy liked Csonka because he was so tough. One Christmas I got a Csonka jersey and thought it was about the best gift ever, at the time. Daddy thought the Bear was the best coach who ever lived. Its funny now looking back to age 14 and what I considered a great gift. Im thankful I had a father who spent a lot of time with me. Daddy loved us all unconditionally. At the time I thought every father in the world was just like mine. But as time passed I began to realize how special a good home-life was. I attended elementary and did not know a child who had divorced parents and everyone had a momma and a daddy. Come to think of it, we pretty much all attended church somewhere on Sunday. With local high school football and college football in full swing at this time, I looked for a quote or two from the Bear to start this column but found so many good quotes that I just decided to include several. Most of the quotes not only apply to football but also to life. Bear Bryant Quotes Mama wanted me to be a preacher. I told her coachin and preachin were a lot alike. Never quit. It is the easiest copout in the world. Set a goal and dont quit until you attain it, set another goal, and dont quit until you reach it, never quit. You must learn how to hold a team together. You must lift some men up, calm others down, until Then youve got yourself a team. teach these things, and my boys dont forget them when they leave. The biggest mistake coaches make is taking borderline cases and trying to save them. Im not talking about grades now, Im talking about character. I want to know before a boy enrolls about his home life, and what his parents want him to be. When you make a mistake, there are only three things you should ever do about it: 1. Admit it. 2. Learn from it. 3. Dont repeat it. This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is very important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not a loss good not evil. Success, not failure, in order that I shall not forget the price I paid for it. .......Preach on Bear. With football season underway I thought I would share a simple game day cheese spread or dip. Now cheese, bacon and cream cheese is hard to beat. Game Day Cheese Spread 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened 4 tablespoons mayonnaise 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 4 drops hot sauce, optional 2 cups grated Cheddar Cheese 3 tablespoon sliced green onion 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon Crackers of choice In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce until well combined. Stir in cheese, pecans and onions. Place spread in a small bowl and top with crumbled bacon. Chill for one hour. Let dip sit out of refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving with crackers. We like Captain Wafers. This last week has been heartbreak ing for so many in our community. My mind has been on Psalms 46:1, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. What a comfort it is to know the Lord person ally when the unthinkable happens. I would like to take the opportu nity to thank Sheriff Bobby Schultz, the Fire/Rescue personnel who re sponded to Don Spirits home last Thursday afternoon. I can only imagine the horrors you witnessed. My heart breaks for each one of you, as Im sure its a memory you will not be able to forget. Thank you for doing what you do day in and day out. I think working in law a calling, and I appreciate your will ingness to answer the calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You deal with situations not everyone can handle and you do it with a level of professionalism that makes this com munity proud. To the teachers and administra tors at Bell Elementary School and Kathys All Things, thank you for not only teaching, but also loving on children. I think if we knew the number of children in our community who wake up in homes that are just chaos ev ery single day, our minds would be blown. In so many cases, the teach ers and administrators at our schools provide the only stable environment these children know. And sometimes a teachers hug is the only one a child will receive all day long. Its hum bling to think about, but sadly its the cold reality of the world we live in. Ive been thinking about the pre cious people at Mt. Nebo Baptist Church who picked the children up for church almost every Sunday on the church van. Those babies met Je sus last week in heaven, but before that, they saw Jesus love in each and every one of you, who took the time to pray with them, or teach them at Vacation Bible School. As a mother, my mind has replayed the words to Jesus Loves Me over and over again. Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so; Little ones to Him belong; They are weak, but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so. Jesus loves me! This I know, As He loved so long ago, Taking children on His knee, Saying, Let them come to Me. Jesus loves me still today, Walking with me on my way, Wanting as a friend to give Light and love to all who live. Jesus loves me! He who died Heavens gate to open wide; He will wash away my sin, Let His little child come in. Dear Editor, There are certain moments in life when it seems I am awakened out of a self-created bubble. Life goes on for periods of time when everything seems to be going great or at least uneventful. I get comfortable, and though I recognize evil is around us, it almost doesnt seem truly real. Then events happen like that of September 18 at 4 p.m. in Bell. It is then I am mentally forced out of that bubble I created for myself and am reminded that were in the midst of a war zone. For we do not wrestle the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12) It is always in tragic events like these that people either draw closer to God or push away from God, in both cases because of the grief and pain that is felt for the victims and those affected by it. I couldnt help but think about the story of Job all week. If you think about it, we dont really know a lot about Job only that he had a faith that Satan found challenging I know how much I love my two children and can only imagine the amount of love he had for his ten children. I cant fathom receiving the news that one of my children has died much less both at the same time. Job not only lost his children but also his livelihood all at the same time Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. And he said, Naked I came from my mothers womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong. (Job 1:20-22) Paul told those in the Philippian letter not to be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Having that peace doesnt mean that we dont grieve or that we dont mourn. Having that peace doesnt mean that we dont feel broken or that we have the answers. Having that peace that surpasses all understanding means that we dont forget who is in ultimate control our God! The tragic events that took place in Bell leave us all seeking answers and tears our hearts apart as we think about what those children experienced. I have found comfort though in thinking about what they are experiencing now! They are experiencing joy and radiant glory that we can only try to imagine. I appreciate so much the focus that our community leaders have put on drawing closer together and seeking Gods comfort and peace. We will continue to pray for this family, for our community, for our children and for all those who responded to and case. Everritt Heaton Trenton Seek Gods comfort and peace Dear Editor, With the tragic news this week in Bell, I would like to spotlight something positive. The handling of this tragedy by the local leadership, Superintendent of Schools, and Bobby Schultz, Sheriff, makes me proud to be a citizen of Gilchrist County. Both of these gentlemen have been integrally involved in the aftermath last Thursday. Both have been thrown into the national spotlight and have handled themselves professionally and with genuine concern and compassion for both the community and the family. They, along with their wonderful support system in their respective departments, have exceptionally handled the crime scene, the investigation, the community, the schools and students, and the overwhelming media presence, along with countless other responsibilities that the rest of us will never know about. Lets all take time to pray for our school staff, the community and the families. Janie Moore Citizen of Gilchrist County Proud to be a citizen of Gilchrist Co. Dear Editor, In the past few months, our local tea party group has launched attacks on two of our county commissioners campaigns and our county administrator. This style of campaigning is simply distasteful and uncalled for. In a county of this size, where everyone knows everyone else, these attacks are absolutely unnecessary. The people of this county are plenty competent. We can make our minds up as to who we are voting for without the petty attacks. Our local tea party gives other Tea Party groups a bad name. Moreover, what do these attacks accomplish? What is our tea party REALLY trying to accomplish? Lee Deen Trenton Blatant lies from local Tea Party Group

Letters to the Editor Gossip and hearsay Dear Editor, When I picked up the Gilchrist County Journal last week, the headlines caught my eye. After reading the article I could see that the person reporting was not able to give the facts because that information was not yet made public. However, I did read that the teacher involved did not want to press charges. This made me know that this was not an incident where the students or school was in any danger. Then I came to page three of the newspaper. All I can say is, Shame on you Carrie Mizell. The article entitled Now and Then, in my opinion is journalism at its worst. Why try to put panic and fear into parents when the front page article clearly stated that the facts were not known? Why make it seem like students and the school were under attack? Why use words like accosted and threat when you were not there? Does the Gilchrist County Journal use gossip and heresay to report the news? I stand behind Mr. Rankin and Mrs. Mathe 100%. Neither person would ever put the Bell Elementary students or school in jeopardy and to refer to the Sandy Hook massacre was uncalled for. Again, Shame on you, Carrie Mizell. Bonnie Edwards Branford North Gilchrist County AMENDMENT 1 20 YEARS OF TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION Environmental groups complain dollars to buy conservation land have been drastically cut since 2009. But, to anyone paying attention, state revenues dropped drastically because of a horrible recession. Everyone did with less! Our legislators scrambled to cover the essential needs of schools, unemployment, Medicaid, and more. Land buying took a back Vote No! seat to human needs, as it should have. Amendment 1 limits the Legislatures ability to deal with crises by putting into our constitution the requirement to set aside approximately $500 million dollars per year from doc stamp tax revenues to buy conservation land. No matter what happens to the economy, no matter what the pressing human needs might be, that money will be untouchable. Never mind that there are 69,000 homeless children in our schools whose only meals are eaten at school. Never mind there are 20,000 on a waiting list for Medicaid subsidized elder care. Whats worse is the bonding authority in Amendment 1. Spokesmen for the environmental groups supporting Amendment 1 say openly that the real intent of Amendment 1 is to sell bonds and as they can as fast as they can, and pay for it with future tax revenues. That is debt that must be repaid to the bond holders. Florida citizens must say NO to Amendment 1. If not, We the People will be on the hook for that land-buying debt and the legislators will have no ability to change that. Charlie Perez, President Gilchrist County Tea Party As a former, recent Bell student, the rivalry is not healthy for the community. Its not logical to run two different schools that only produce approximately 100 graduates a year. Given the current busing situation to both schools, it would make much and for the teachers to merge the schools. How sound is it to just condemn yourselves to doing the same amount of time simply because it has been tradition? College Student ---In response to college student, the combining of the two schools will kill the business and economy in both towns. The high schools are the anchors of both of our towns. More than just a rivalry between two schools its the backbone of our local economy. Marc ---I think the rivalry is healthy for the community, as long as it doesnt get out of hand or violent. K. Slysofski ---It would not be a game if they did not rival up against each other. These kids love what they do and the alumni enjoy it as well. Dee Dee Benson-Gunnison ---Why should it end? When all is said and done both teams support the other against out of county rivals. We are all Gilchrist. Laura Petersen ---has been laid towards sports and extracurricular activities, and not what is best for the students. We shouldnt conform to traditions to appease the alumni or for the communitys entertainment. Gilchrist is too small of an area to not merge the schools soon. Tyler Cutts ---The joining of schools has been discussed since my mother attended Bell High School and she is now 71. Ivy Smith ---That would be like UF and FSU not being rivals...at least at the end of the game everyone can support one another. If no rivalry, then what is everyone going to talk about at Thanksgiving or the family reunion? Let the trash talk begin! Elizabeth Roberts Long ---Using UF and FSU as a comparison totally different entities. They are 150 miles apart, with totally different curricula and origins. Were talking about one county with two schools 10 miles apart, and the only reason that they are separate is sports? Tyler Cutts ---Heres what youre saying online... Voting is a privilege that millions of people in other parts of the world can only dream about. On Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, we have the opportunity for our voice to be heard concerning the direction and future of our country. Seeing it as much more than a privilege, Americas founding fathers encouraged their generation and the ones to come to think of it as a duty a solemn responsibility that comes with the sacred trust of being a citizen of the United States. As Christians, our faith in God and that includes the political arena. We shouldnt be bashful about holding up the Bibles standards of right and wrong. Gods standards are essential to a free society such as ours, to prevent it from sliding into chaos where everyone does People of faith, grounded in moral truth, must be prepared to determine those candidates best able to uphold Gods moral standard. As Christs representatives on earth, we are to be salt and light in our culture Familys founder, Dr. James Dobson wrote, We live in a representative form of government where we are its leaders. It means that every citizen has a responsibility to participate in the decisions that are made and that includes people of faith [using] his or just. A recent study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans say their faith has little to do with their voting decisions. In fact, many believers fail to consider their biblical values when voting, often choosing candidates whose positions are at odds with their own beliefs, convictions, and values. But Charles Colson, founder of the Prison Fellowship ministry, highlighted the need for something more than voting the party line when he wrote: Societies are tragically vulnerable when the men and women who compose them lack character. A nation or a culture cannot endure for long unless it is under-girded by common values such as valor, publicspiritedness, respect for others and for the law; it cannot stand unless it is populated by people who will a ct on motives superior to their own immediate interest. Keeping the law, respecting human life and property, loving national goals, helping the unfortunate, paying taxes all these depend on the individual virtues of courage, loyalty, charity, compassion, civility and duty. Acting on motives superior to their own immediate interests means that where a candidate stands on issues like abortion and protecting family should be more of a decision maker on who to vote for than what on the campaign trail. In Proverbs 29:2, the Bible is clear: When the righteous rule, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. Make it a priority to vote in the upcoming election. Lets use our voice to uphold Gods standard by voting values, because the hearts of this generation and the nextthey really do matter!

I attend many meetings on behalf of the City, and I have traveled to Tallahassee and Washington promoting the interests of Fanning Springs. I have been dependable, reliable and have demonstrated that I can and will get the work done. Most residents know who I am and where I stand on issues, however, I welcome input from all concerned citizens. I am accessible to everyone. My experience, contacts and commitment to Fanning Springs make me an excellent choice for mayor. Thank you for your support. We have been incredibly successful; so lets keep going. Vote Cheryl Nekola, October 7 for Mayor of City of Fanning Springs. Nekola Continued from page 1 This cannot happen, School Board member Michelle Walker Crawford said, noting that the incident could have had a tragic outcome. Board members discussed possibly putting a buzzer on the front door of the school that would signal every time the door opened and closed, but nothing was ultimately decided on. Superintendent Robert Rankin said he had talked with Trenton Elementary School Principal Lynnette Langford about implementing new strategies to make sure this never happens again. Since the incident, Mrs. Langford said the school has initiated a threeperson buddy system for students walking to and from the nurses then sent back to class. If a child has to be treated for an extended period then the childs teacher is called to send two students back to the nurses class. If a student is just going somewhere on campus and coming right back then he or she is sent with just one buddy. Parents, please learn from this incident and take the opportunity to talk with your children about the importance of staying on the school campus at all times. TES Student Continued from page 1

Thank you for your consideration, Howell Trip Lancaster 352-463-1673 email@example.com Lancaster Continued from page 1 By Jason Burrow Friday night football is more than football is the smell of hamburgers on the grill, and the sounds of children playing behind the bleachers. Its the conversations, handshakes, and hugs shared amongst the friends in those bleachers. Sure football is rough, and the rivalries run deep but it also brings us together like few things can. This was evident more than ever Friday night in Bell. With the stadium every fan wearing white this wasnt just a game, it was much, much more than that. This was a way to honor the loss our community suffered this week, and a symbol of our togetherness as a community. The players on both these teams deserve a thank you from all of us. I thank them for giving us a feeling of normal when we most needed it. There was a game played on Friday night though, and the Trenton Tigers now hold a 44-23 record in the over all series against the Bell Bulldogs with a 56 13 win. #5 Hamp Cheevers wasted no time getting the action started when he in tercepted the Bulldog QB #1 River Lundys opening drive, 3rd down pass and took it back 30 yards for a Touchdown. Bell pulled a rabbit out of the hat on their next drive though, when River Lundy pitched the ball to #9 Ja cob Floyd who then threw a 33 yard touchdown pass back to the Bulldog quarterback. However, that was one of only a few plays of the night that went the Bulldogs way. By halftime Trenton held a 35 -13 lead to which they added 21 points in the 3rd quar ter. Hamp Cheevers made plays for the Tigers all night long. His second quarter 24 yard touchdown catch, in which he trapped a short throw against his helmet with one hand, and fought off a Bulldog defender with the other was truly spectacular. The play of the night for the Tigers defense came courtesy of #2 Brooks Martins 2nd quarter diving intercep tion at the Tiger 30 yard line. Im sure many who were in the stands are on to the ball. For the Bulldogs, #9 Jacob Floyd led the team with 124 of the teams 155 total yards, and #43 Jimmie Buckler led the defense with 10 tack les. Trenton will host Cedar Creek Christian out of Jacksonville this week. Cedar Creek is 1 2 on the season and coming off a 19-8 loss to Duval Charter, another Jacksonville team. The Bulldogs will travel to the The Villages Charter School (The Vil lages) who hold a record of 3-1 and are coming off a 28-0 victory over Bradford. Jacob Floyd played a solid game for the Bulldogs.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Six Paid by D. Ray Harrison, Jr., Republican for County Commission Dist. 2 I have been honored to serve as your County Commis sioner. Recently I have come under attack from the local Tea Party and they have said some misleading things about my term in office. I would like to clear the air and tell you the truth. They said I have a "spend attitude". As a county com missioner I have worked hard to balance our county's budget. I have never voted to raise county taxes, I have always voted for reduced millage rates. They say that we approved a 13% raise for the county administrator. That is not the whole story. When the county administrator was hired, he was placed on proba tion for one year to monitor his job performance. He was started at a rate below what we paid the previous administrator. His pay was increased after a probation period of almost 2 years instead of the one year proba tion period as was agreed upon between the county and administrator. They say we spent $25,000 on attorney fees. This is incorrect as we spent less than that amount however, it should be stressed that the Countys involvement in this matter was not due to any fault of the County and was created by the employee. The County utilized its exist ing labor attorney to defend itself in the face of a poten tial lawsuit threatened by the employee and the fact that the employee had retained several different attorneys to represent them in continuing employment proceedings with the County. My goal was and has always been to represent and protect the Countys financial interests. I did not block an upgrade to county infrastructure. When the North Florida Broadband authority came to the county, I voted to donate county tower space to them for the project. As the project progressed, the group refused to disclose their financial records. At that time I did vote against the broadband authority. Several other counties and cities pulled out also after their question able financial status and lack of transparency. They say I do not listen to public input, and do not uphold ordinances, rules, and regulations. These accusa tions are all just not true. I always listen to public input at the meetings. My phone is always available for citizens to call me. I have always followed the law. I am sorry that the citizens of Gilchrist County have to be subjected to this style of campaigning. A campaign against me based on untrue and false and incomplete statements. I have campaigned based on myself and my record. Sincerely, D. Ray Harrison, Jr. Gilchrist County Commissioner Dist. 2.

Ms. Kearney received $100 as the September Teacher of the Month. The parent who nominated Ms. Kearney for the honor had this to say about her, She is always there work ing with kids, with everything they need and she works with the kids one-on-one when they need it. She is an awesome teacher. I saw her just this morning, working hard cleaning the classroom and doing things out side of a teachers duties. I would say shes always friendly, nice, sweet, overall the best teacher I have come across in many... many... years. One other thing, MY child was having problems remembering her lunch number, until Ms. Kearney worked with my child every day, after only about three days, my child knows her lunch number all by herself, and she knows how to write her name on the sign-in board in the classroom in the morning. Before school started my child could not do as much as she can now. Please take this e-mail from the bottom of a fathers heart, and give this teacher the award.

A Fair Housing/Equal Opportunity/Handicap Accessible Jurisdiction. Pastor Jimmy Corbin, of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church, spoke at a memorial service held on Sunday evening at Bell High School. Sarah Spririts children caught a ride on the Mt. Nebo Baptist Church bus so they could attend church almost every Sunday, Corbin explained. Our small town has been touched, the whole county has been touched, the whole state and nation has been touched by this tragedy, Corbin said. Many of you have been praying for this family for a long time. I ask you, in the days ahead, not to forget the family. Pray for them and lift them up. The pastor said there is no question in his mind that Kaleb, Kylie, Johnathon, Destiny, Brandon, and Alanna are with the Lord in heaven. They are in heaven today and they will never suffer again, Corbin said. The good that could come out of this tragedy would be for you to come to know Jesus and be saved. Bell Tragedy: Community suffers great loss Continued from page 1 The Journal staff was smiling through tears earlier this week when we received Evan Cobbs drawing of Sarah Spirit and her children in heaven. Evan is a third grade student at Bell Elementary School and he murders. From what we understand, Evan had this to say about his picture, Theres a mama angel with all her babies. The children are playing tag with each other. They have their favorite toys like a teddy bear and train. There is a special angel who is the candy deliverer because in heaven all candy is healthy and you can eat as much as you want. You never have to sleep because the sun always shinesunless you want to take a nap, then thats ok. Oh, yeahheaven is called Kids Paradise. God bless you, Evan. One county united.
