IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. Just two years ago, Trenton residents Katrina and Roberto Gomez welcomed their second son, Wyatt Gomez. Wyatt was born at 29 weeks and weighed just 2.9 pounds at birth. During Katrinas labor, Wyatt had severe hemorrhaging in his brain and miraculously survived with little oxygen. Severely injured and under developed, Wyatt was brought into the world and immediately placed in an incubator where he was kept for months. After struggling with the idea of their newborn childs fragile life, the Gomez family was greeted by dozens of kind-hearted individuals wanting to provide emotional support. Many of these incredible strangers were involved with the March of Dimes NICU Support of Gainesville, as well as the Florida Neonatal, Neurological Network. They provided the Gomez family with informative books, offered them dinners, provided entertainment for Wyatts older brother and even helped out of town families at the local Ronald McDonald house. During the toughest times of their lives, the Gomez family was shown endless support and nothing but the best healthcare. Three months, one blood transfusion, and one surgery later, his family. Against all odds, the blood clots and hemorrhaging had resolved and Wyatt had no traces of white matter. Doctors recommended physical therapy to help with muscular issues caused by his extended stay at the hospital, but soon enough Wyatt was living a normal life in his loving home. As the Gomez family transitioned back to life at home, they never forgot what they went through with Wyatt and how many people helped them through it. The family wanted to give back to the two organizations that gave and support by putting together a charity event. Living on a ranch, the outdoors loving family of four thought the perfect way to generate funds for such a special Lasso for Little Ones cause was by organizing a goat roping competition in their own community, uniting the county and the country for a day of rodeo competition, food and entertainment. The inaugural Lasso for Little Ones Goat Roping Competition will take place on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Gilchrist County Rodeo Arena located at 4050 South US Highway 129, Trenton. Roberto and Katrina Gomez are pictured with their sons, Wyatt and Theodore. A favorable vote from the Florida Joint Legislative Budget Commission in late September will enable the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Suwannee River Water Management District and the City of Fanning Springs to water quality improvement project, Fanning Springs is a second magnitude spring. This project will remove septic tanks preventing loading to groundwater of roughly 1,300 pounds of nitrogen per year. This funding is the catalyst needed to improve and protect the water quality using effective science, says Dr. Ann Shortelle, executive director of SRWMD. We genuinely appreciate Governor Scotts and the Legislatures leadership in making funding available to help protect the health of our springs. The project will expand the City of Fanning Springs existing wastewater collection and transmission system and eliminate the use of many older Fanning Springs wastewater collection to be expanded septic tanks near Fanning Springs State Park. Total project cost is $1,276,400 with a DEP grant of $492,960, a match of $121,440 from the District and the City of Fanning Springs contributing $662,000. The Fanning Springs Water Quality Improvement Project will reduce nutrient loading Fanning Springs Mayor, Cheryl Nekola said, The City of Fanning Springs is very thankful for the opportunity to help protect and improve the water quality for Fanning Springs State Park, Little Bell Springs and the Suwanee River. We treasure our river and springs you to the Florida State Legislature, Department of Environmental Protection and Suwanee River Water Management. DEP evaluated the proposed projects put forth by the District. As a result of this process, nine projects throughout the District are poised to move forward totaling nearly $15.2 million. The Fanning Springs Wastewater Treatment Facility went online in 2013. I am Whitney Smith and I am proud to be your district two Fanning Springs City Commissioner. I have been the Consistent, Conservative voice on the commission for over 10 years, with an excellent attendance record. During this period, we have seen a great deal of positive economic growth. Two new parks, to enjoy our beautiful Suwannee River and scenic exercise trails. The new livestock pavilion provides the entire tri county a place to use for meetings or graduations, as well as further establish the best Agriculture Youth Fair in the State. The attraction of the Jack Wilkerson Campus of Central Florida College will only keep our young minds local as they get valuable trade and college degrees. We have added the Sewer Treatment Facility that will keep our environment cleaner, especially the springs and river that we rely on. We continue to make equipment and noted recently by reduced ISO ratings and an excellent record in response times to all calls. I was appointed over 10 years ago, under the leadership of Jim White and John Waldron, and through their excellent experience, and goal to keep government smaller, we kept a business owner, job creator, and very accessible for all city concerns. My family has been in Levy County children six. I have served the greater community in many local Chamber of Commerces, Rotary, Vision groups, housing authority and planning councils, such as Vice Chair of the Withlacoochee Planning Council. I have strived to balance reasonable growth with our rural, small town character, avoiding incremental unplanned growth and mediocrity in a diverse housing and work or retirement lifestyle. My preference is for growth to preserve historical features, while maintaining the scenic quality of the rural corridors and major highways that bring tourists through our city daily. I have enjoyed the political process as it allows me to meet many people in the community. With your will continue to be your voice on the Commission. Please vote on October 7 at City Hall.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Three THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014 By Cindy Jo Ayers Now & Then By Carrie A. Mizell Letters to the Editor City manager is outstanding The Trenton City Commissions failure to recognize the outstanding performance of its City Manager, Taylor Brown, is disappointing. In late 2002 after Stephanie and I explored establishing the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe in Trenton with then Mayor Pete Randolph and City Manager Michael Lamar, hardly a week went by that Mayor Pete or the City Manager didnt stop by to see how things were going or to bring visitors to the Quilt Shoppe. Now its rare to see a City Commissioner in the Shop and I cant remember the last time our Mayor visited. After Taylor Brown was hired as City Manager he has continued to support controlled soft growth and development in Trenton with a vision towards creating a destination for quilters and old time craft enthusiasts. In addition to daily visitors from Orlando, the Villages, Clearwater, Tallahassee, the Florida Panhandle and Southern Georgia, Trenton now hosts Floridas largest annual outdoor Quilt and Craft Festival that attracts over 7,000 visitors to town and is responsible for the largest business day of the year for Trentons restaurants. Trenton Trail and is providing leadership to a number of surrounding communities to help them tap in to this 20,000 visitor a year tourist development opportunity. Taylors tenure has seen the establishment of a number of new businesses including McDonalds, Family Dollar and most recently the announcement of a Walmart Express. His budget management has been superb and his involvement in the community has been exemplary. Taylors reward for an outstanding year was for the Mayor to propose a Cost of Living Adjustment that maintains Taylors salary at the same economic value as the prior year. In essence, no economic recognition was provided for Taylors outstanding performance. This speaks more to the Mayors lack of exposure to the real business world and what it takes to attract and retain outstanding talent. I would prefer to see new leadership of the City Commission than to see a new City Manager. Paul Metts Co-Owner Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe Vote No on Amendment 2 Dear Editor, On September 22, 2014 I attended the Vote No on 2 informational session presented by Dr. Jessica Sessions at Bell High School. Vote No on 2 was developed to educate Florida residents about the medical marijuana Florida constitutional amendment which, if passed, would allow the use of marijuana for medical conditions. As the amendment is presented, many people would believe that marijuana could be useful in alleviating the pain of cancer patients, seizures in children, or other debilitating diseases, which could be a good thing, but that is not the case. I raised the question If this is a drug prescribed by a physician, why isnt the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) involved in the testing and approval process? Dr. Sessions answer was twofold. First of all, there are ALREADY FDA APPROVED MARIJUANA PLANT DERIVED DRUGS PRESCRIBED BY PHYSICIANS for patients who cannot tolerate other drugs to ease their symptoms and these drugs have been approved for years. According to Dr. Sessions, the THC levels are known and the drugs have been tested and found to be safe. Secondly, THERE ARE NO APPROVED DRUGS THAT HAVE TO BE SMOKED. Physicians would NOT prescribe medical marijuana, but only RECOMMEND that marijuana be used to relieve a condition. Those physicians would set up shop the same way they have set up the pill mills and recommend marijuana for anyone coming through the door, including children. We have anti-smoking organizations that are obviously silent on this topic. Why are they not speaking out against smoking marijuana? As we have already seen in Colorado and California, the medical to legalize the recreational use of the drug and the problems associated with its use. Gilchrist is a small county, but we can make a strong statement for a healthy environment by voting NO on Amendment 2. For more information regarding the Amendment and the loopholes contained therein, please visit the website www.VoteNo2.org Rosemary McDaniel Trenton Dear Editor Using documentary stamp revenue to purchase state lands is a solid way to acquire the funds. General revenue programs do not come from Doc stamps. Lets face it: we need lands protected from development. Sincerely, Jean Wosner Vote Yes on Amendment 1 Dear Editor, I want to commend Gilchrist County Schools Superintendent, Robert Rankin for his spending many tireless hours and days helping the family of the victims of the recent senseless killing of a mother and her six children. Mr. Rankin put together the memorial service and the candlelight service for these. I and Christian love for this hurting family. I also want to commend Gilchrist County Sheriff Bobby Schultz for his tireless efforts to assist this family. I also saw his compassion, tears and Christian love shown to the family and the citizens of the county. Both of these men gave me great encouragement and their prayers which helped me conduct the memorial service and the graveside services of which were the hardest for me in 37 years of pastoring and conducting hundreds of funerals. Gilchrist County should be extremely proud of these men of Godly character with compassion and concern for the students, faculty and citizens of Gilchrist County. I also realize there were many other people who helped these men in assisting the families, faculty and students, and I commend them also. May God continue to bless these men as they serve in their elected positions. Pastor Jimmy Corbin Mt. Nebo Baptist Church Vote No on Amendment 2 October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During this time, we encourage members of our community to become familiar with how the Gilchrist County Clerks know. Unfortunately, one in four women and one in seven men in the United States suffer physical violence at the hands of their spouses, intimate partners or even family members. Additionally, three out of four Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. When applied to the State of Florida alone, these statistics are staggering and show what a tremendous impact domestic violence has on our local communities. Many victims of domestic violence suffer in silence, fearful to let others know. Gilchrist County has recently seen how domestic violence can and does happen in small towns like ours. However, it is vital that we recognize that this violence is not inevitable, nor is it somebody elses problem. In order to effectively make strides against this issue and improve these statistics within North Florida, we must not remain silent upon experiencing, witnessing or hearing about incidents of domestic violence. With this in mind, it is important to focus on what we can do to help victims and, ultimately, how we can put an end to domestic violence in Gilchrist County. The Gilchrist County clerks are keenly sensitive to the needs of domestic violence survivors and take these matters very seriously. We are committed to assisting victims, with complete throughout the entire process of with advocate programs like Another Way. As a local crisis center, Another Way provides domestic violence and sexual assault services in Gilchrist, Columbia, Dixie, Levy, Hamilton and Lafayette counties. They can be reached 24 hours a day, toll-free at 1866-875-7983. If you or someone you know is suffering from domestic violence, please contact the family law division of the Gilchrist County Clerks information on our website at www. GilchristClerk.com Domestic violence is a prominent issue and the Gilchrist County community members and lend a helping hand for those in need of domestic violence assistance. We work very closely with the Gilchrist both safety and justice are achieved for victims and their families in the event that a domestic violence incident occurs. Todd Newton Gilchrist County Clerk of Court Domestic Violence Awareness Month My Fellow Citizens, For the past 20 years I have had the great pleasure of serving you by teaching your children to have a strong work ethic, pride in themselves, their parents and their community and to become strong contributing citizens of this county we all love. Now I am asking for the opportunity to serve you as your county commissioner of district 2. My goal if elected will be to act as a good steward of your tax dollars; to always consider what is best for all the people of this county; to make no promise I cant keep and to never tell an untruth for any reason. I have, and will run my campaign based on what I plan and can do relying on my experience, my abilities, and my strong faith to guide me. On November 11th I will celebrate my 44th anniversary with my wife Diane. We have 6 children, 23 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. We have also had the honor of being foster parents to over 300 children and adopted 2. We have been members, and I am a past board member, of Trenton Community Church of The Nazarene for over 20 years. I am a conservative with strong moral values. As general manager of an architectural and engineering firm, my responsibilities included planning and direction of various projects. This included determining and maintaining budgets, scheduling, and decisions regarding personnel. I spent 30 years involved in the construction industry prior to becoming an educator and between the two professions have garnered a wealth of experience that I bring to the commission. If elected, I know I will have to make tough decisions based on many different factors. I will always have an open ear and give thought to your needs, when considering these decisions. That is the promise I will make. I think we can do more for this county with the resources we have. I respectfully ask that you honor me with your vote on November 4, 2014 when you go to the polls.

This time of year in the South, football takes center stage. Our two local high schools have teams playing every Friday night as well as lots of college games on Saturday. For a while now Mr. Doug Beach and I have been talking about hot wings recipes. Seems Mr. Doug is very fond of hot wings. Since our whole family and Journal staff is very fond of Mr. Doug I thought I would look for a hot wing recipe for him. I have fond memories of our downtown. Mr. Doug was the postmaster for many, many years. He was a wonderful postmaster and tried to do his best to make sure everyone got their mail timely. He always cared about our community and the service the good old days for sure. Game day would not be the same without a platter of hot wings, and Trenton would not be the same without Mr. Doug. The following recipe is the simplest recipe for homemade wings Ive tried. One sauce is hot and one is John, who is the wing lover in our home, gave both recipes the thumbs up. I really like the fact that you could make both sauces up ahead of time and chill till ready to use. Hot Wings and Soy Ginger Glazed Wings Chicken Wings 5 pounds of wings 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Cut the wing tips off and cut wing into 2 pieces. Salt and pepper wings and drizzle with oil and toss. Place on 2 wire racks that have been placed in 2 baking sheet pans. Spread out wings so they do not touch. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Hot Buffalo Sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1/3 cup hot sauce such as Franks (I found Franks at Hitchcock) let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Take half the baked wings and drizzle with hot wing sauce and toss. Serve immediately. Soy Ginger Glaze 1/3 cup honey 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce 3 large garlic cloves, chopped 1 piece of fresh ginger, peeled, sliced (Use a piece about 1x2 inches) If you want the glaze sweet and hot Bring all the ingredients and cup water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve honey. Reduce heat to low, simmer stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1/3 cup, this should take about 7 or 8 minutes. Let sit for 15 minutes so the sauce has time to thicken. Put other half of wings in bowl and pour sauce over and toss to cover well. Put glazed wings back on wire rack in sheet pan and bake 8 minutes at 400 degrees. Gilchrist County Journal Advertising Printing Fax Service 463-7393 463-7135 See LETTERS on page 4 My husband Adam and I enjoyed a quick trip to Savannah over the weekend. Late September is always tough for us because it marks the an niversary of the death of our baby. Inevitably, I walk around with a gi ant lump in my throat and a hole in my heart for a solid week. Thank the Lord I have a fantastic husband who feels the exact same sense of loss. That burden, coupled with all the sadness in our community lately, had my heart feeling especially heavy last week, so we opted to just get out of town. After Allie Claire got out of school on Friday I took the kids to Callahan and dropped them off with my in-laws for a spend the night party at Nonna and Papas house. Im not sure who was more excited, the kids or the grandparents. Adam met us at the farm and I jumped in the truck with him and off we went. In eight years of marriage, Ive learned not to ask my husband if he wants to go on an overnight trip. You see, he owns his own forestry site prep business and his cell phone rings constantly with one issue or an other. In other words, there is never a good time to go out of town. So I just tell him were going and wait un til the day we plan to leave to make the reservation, all the while praying a tractor doesnt break down, and no one gets stuck. Thank goodness we didnt have any issues on Friday night. We drove up US 1 to Folkston and ate supper at the Okefenokee Restaurant. The Oke has a good seafood buffet on Friday night, but my absolute favorite day to eat there is Thursday at lunch when people line up outside to eat their homemade chicken and dumplings. Folkston is a great little town, so if you ever drive through south Geor gia on your way up the coast, stop and look around. Be sure to buy gas at Hopkins-Gowen Oil Company, where youll be greeted by Nick and Arnold. They are true southern gen tlemen who pump gas and clean the windshield of your vehicle. We spent the night at the Eliza Thompson House in Savannah. Built in 1847, the historic home sits on Jones Street, which is lined with trees that are dripping with Spanish moss. Over the years, weve been to Sa vannah countless times, but it never gets old. I am always looking for new things to try while in the historic city. This time we visited Byrds Fa mous Cookies. A Savannah tradition since 1924, Byrds has been baking up fresh cookies for the massess for generations. Varieties include but ter, chocolate mint, jalapeno, and lowcountry cheddar biscuits. At the Byrds location we stopped at, there was a bar set up for cookie sampling. I felt like Cookie Monster on Sesame Street, sitting down at the bar and try ing not to blurt out, Me want cook ie! (This is when you know youre a momma, when you start speaking in character dialogue, Sesame Street characters no less). Perhaps I need another vacation!

Dont be fooled, Amendment 2 is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Amendment 2 is being touted as the legalization of medical marijuana, but the fact is that it is the de facto legalization of recreational marijuana. At face value the amendment appears to be simple, we as Americans are compassionate people and if the very sick need it to survive then we want to help these people. However, the medical part is nothing more than a smokescreen. This amendment is ridden with loopholes that will cripple this state forever and could permanently destroy the moral fabric of our society. Voters are being led to believe that the amendment is for debilitating diseases, but the full text of the amendment allows the use of marijuana for virtually any condition at the discretion of the recommending caregiver. Amendment 2 would allow for conditions such as trouble sleeping or stress to merit medical pot. No actual prescription is required because a prescription would violate federal law. So patients would be written recommendations that they can then take to their local dispensary and get their medical pot. We are already seeing this happen in states that have adopted similar measures. Amendment 2 places no age restriction on pot smoking. This means that teenagers will be able to get their medical marijuana without their parents knowing. If you think as a parent that you will still have to approve of their use think again. This is a constitutional amendment meaning that the users now will have constitutional protections and a right to privacy that you as a parent cannot prevent. Children cannot take an aspirin to school but they can potentially have the ability to legally purchase pot. One of the most troubling aspects of Amendment 2 is the broad immunity that the amendment grants. The amendment clearly spells out that everyone in the chain are immune from lawsuits and liabilities. The recommending physician, the grower, the dispensary, and the user are all protected. It would be the only drug in Florida that has these protections. So, if my child receives a prescription for medical marijuana that I had no knowledge or consent of gets sick and dies, there is no recourse. Whether the product was bad or tainted, whether they took too much or the product was too strong for them to handle, it doesnt matter, everyone in the chain is protected from liability. Unlike any other medicine that has dosage and warnings on the label, there are not any dosage or warning labels on medical marijuana. The amendment creates the role of a caregiver. The caregiver is the one who will write the medical recommendation for the medical pot. The one and only requirement of a caregiver is to be 21 years of age or older. A caregiver can have the ability to provide marijuana for up to 5 people without any medical training or background checks. With no background checks, basically we could be legalizing and legitimizing drug dealers. The early estimates state that there will be over 250,000 caregivers in Florida if Amendment 2 passes. There has also been a long standing argument from some who say legalize, regulate it, and tax it so the state can make money. Well, in the State of Florida, there is no tax on medicine. So if we legalize medical marijuana, the state will not receive a single dime of tax revenue from the sale of marijuana. There is also no way to track it or regulate it since it is not sold at a typical pharmacy, it is sold at a pot dispensary that are run by the marijuana industry. Amendment 2 also creates no restriction on where these shops can locate. It is reasonable to conceive that a store could open within sight of a school or church. The last thing to remember is that it passed. Being that it is a constitutional amendment, constitutional law trumps all other laws. The legislature in Tallahassee cannot write laws is through another constitutional amendment which could take several years to accomplish. Many people disagree on whether or not marijuana has any true however does not belong in the Florida Constitution. Because of and loopholes, it is imperative that Floridians reject Amendment 2. David Biddle State Committeeman Gilchrist County Republican Party Trenton, FL Dear Editor, the September 18 issue of the Journal, my heart sank. armed gunman had managed to enter a classroom and had attacked students, teachers and staff. My thoughts raced, had anyone been killed or wounded? out the headlines had been vastly over-stated but I was troubled by the coverage of the incident. It should have been understandable that details of the situation could not be made public without further investigation. Why did the reporter feel it was necessary to belabor it making it seem something shady was going on? It would seem that the article was based on assumptions and hearsay rather than actual facts. Which brings to mind the commandment, Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor. I then read the article Then and Now written by the same reporter. It was obvious that her emotions had spilled over to the article on the front page and tainted them both. Each of us, in our own way, should be doing all we can in our community and society, as a whole, to help eliminate fear and mistrust not enabling it to creep into our every day lives through such emotional hysteria. It is a shame that Carrie Mizell felt it necessary to throw teachers, a school administrator and a school board member under the bus. Rob Rankin, in particular, has always had the safety, best interest and education all he says and does. And why would anyone call 911? This was not an emergency of the nature most of us would think it necessary to call for help since it appears no ones life was endangered. Besides, by the time others heard of the situation, it was over. To make matters worse, to bring up the tragic events that took place in Connecticut was not only adding fuel those reading the article that somehow the two events were related. This was thoughtless and unforgiveable. Of course, we all want our children to be safe at school as well as anywhere else. I personally believe that we are blessed to have such nurturing, concerned and caring educators and individuals in our school system. We are blessed to have them helping to put our fears to rest and promoting a positive learning environment in which our children can continue to thrive and feel safe, loved, and cared for. I have faith that the appropriate action will be taken in the handling of this unfortunate situation. I do agree with Ms. Mizell that politics should not play a part in our childrens welfare. So, if you have an axe to grind, grind it elsewhere. It seems there are certainly enough really tragic situations in the world. We dont have to make mountains out of mole hills. Marilyn Runde Branford Vote No Amendment 2 Assumptions and hearsay The members of Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire Department would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who came out to support The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation. With your generosity, we are proud to present them with a donation of over twentyfour hundred dollars, collected with the love of our friends and colleagues for such a needy cause. A special thank you to the Gilchrist County Journal for the front page coverage. Also, thank you to all of the volunteers at the breakfast and such a great success. Without you, we couldnt have done as well as we did. Don Alexander Spring Ridge ank you North Central Florida Fall is in the air, and ushering in all the excitement of this time of year. festivals and the upcoming holidays are just around the corner. On a more serious note, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Except for cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, about 240,000 women will be diagnosed with non-invasive and invasive breast cancer in the US each year. Men can also develop breast cancer, although it is much less common. Each year, an estimated 2,000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the US. Learning that someone you love has cancer is overwhelming. After ask ourself is What can I do? How well we answer that question makes a huge difference in the way we and our loved one faces the challenges ahead. In the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, the Bible records the practical and spiritual wisdom of the wisest of men, Solomon Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10,12) Life is designed for companionship, not isolation. We may never understand that more than when facing cancer. A few years ago, I received the news that a long time friend was facing this battle, and I asked the inevitable question: What could I do? Her family rallied close and tended to her most urgent and intimate needs, so would I do better to stay out of the way? She wasnt someone I saw or was in touch with on a daily or even weekly basis. In fact, the once-a-month prayer breakfast that she hosted at her home for a small group of us was about the only time we crossed paths at this point in our lives. As a group, we decided to continue the monthly breakfast meetings as long as she was up to it. We also decided to get informed and know what we were up against. We chose a book called Getting Better, Not Bitter: A Spiritual Prescription for Breast Cancer written by Brenda Ladun. Reading the book together and discussing it helped us understand what our friend was facing, how she might be feeling, and that it was okay for us to talk openly with her. We also learned that it was not only okay, but necessary to continue enjoying life. When our friend began to lose her hair from the chemo and was struggling to adjust to wig-wearing, we all showed up at her house for our breakfast meeting saw! She laughed until she cried (so did we!) and then commented that she felt much better about wearing her wig when she saw how bad we looked in ours! I have a picture of it never fails to make me laugh. Not only did our relationship with each other strengthen, but God used this struggle to increase our faith. We rejoice that our friend is now cancer free, and we treasure a wealth of memories from that time together. Remember, there is nothing you one expects you to. Just be honest. Let your loved one know that you arent sure what to do, but that you care and are available, because their heart matters to you!

Under a District Digital Classroom Plan that has been submitted to the Department of Education, District of nology into all aspects of the educa tional system to support higher-level learning, problem solving, critical thinking skills and collaboration. The ultimate goal is to improve student learning. The school district has already purchased iPads for kindergarten2nd grade, as well as laptop carts for 4th grade at TES and 5th grade at BES. And if the Districts Digital Classroom Plan receives the antici pated $270,000 in funding, Trenton and Bell students in grades 4-8 will have increased access to technology are also investigating the opportu nity to provide digital devices in a 1 to 1 ratio for students in 9th grade.

Training for teachers will be pro vided through a $75,000 Professional Development for Digital Learning grant. It is important not only that tech nology is available, but also that our teachers are experts in how best to use these types of tools to deliver and differentiate instruction for all types of learners, explained Superinten dent Robert Rankin. Currently, there is one computer for every four students in the District. According to the Digital Classroom Plan, schools in this District serve a population that is high in poverty. The national poverty average is 12.4 percent, according to the US Census Bureaus 2013 statistics, however the poverty rate in Gilchrist County is 20.4 percent. The Gilchrist County School Board approved the District Digital Classroom Plan unanimously and it was submitted to the state prior to the October 1 deadline, in hopes that ap proval will quickly follow. Wild Things in the Classroom! Report cards are coming out soon and it seems like classes just started. And does Nature Coast Middle School have the classes! After mornings of common core curriculum, the afternoon brings electives to expand students minds in a refreshing way. Most schools dont offer Wild Things, an exploration of our natural world and native creatures, nor do they offer karate in one classroom, tae-kwon-do in another, and guitar down the hall. Nature Coast Middle School draws students and parents who have heard of the nurturing atmosphere, very caring teachers, and the wide array of electives offered to the sixth through eighth grades. This school year, the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge has partnered with Wild Things instructor, John Lohde, so that the students might have the right tools for wildlife observation, nature journaling, and conservation study. Backpacks with youth binoculars, microscopes, and milkweed plants for the beginning. The Refuge Ranger will assist with the class once a week, donating more tools for nature study and introducing native wildlife to students. At the end of the semester, shell introduce the students to the wide variety of conservation careers available through county, state, and federal agencies. Meanwhile, Lohde, teaching about habitats takes the class outside to observe and sketch the critters that make their home on the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge will provide exposure to the marine habitat and the opportunity to see the wading birds like roseate spoonbills, herons, and ibis the students have been studying in the classroom. Our National Wildlife Refuge System works with partners to conserve our native species for now and for generations to come.

By Shawn Hutto On Monday, the Lady Bulldogs traveled to Mayo to take on the Lafayette Hornets. The last time these two teams met was last year Bell winning 3-1. The Bulldogs came in hoping to continue their string of sweeps against 1A opponents and would not disappoint. Behind a fast pace and power hitting from Raychel Thomas, Ashton Mathews and Shelbie Hutto, Bell pulled out to looked back, winning 25-11. In the second set the Lady Bulldogs again pulled out to a big lead. Mayo would battle back and with Bell stuck on point 20, errors by the Bulldogs allowed the Hornets to close the gap. After a timeout by Coach Barry, the Lady Dogs regrouped and closed out the set winning 25-19. The third set started much like the other two with hard hitting and Baylee Rollings game leading 25 assists, comfortably cruising to a 25-16 victory to complete the 3-0 sweep. With the win, the Lady Bulldogs improve to 11-2 overall and have now swept 11 out of 13 opponents this year. Leading Lady Bulldogs post big wins players for the Bulldogs were Baylee Rolling with 19 service points, 25 assists, 6 kills; Shelbie Hutto with 15 kills; Ashton Mathews with 8 kills, 3 blocks, 7 service points and Ashley Williams with 9 kills, 7 digs and 9 service points. On Tuesday, the Lady Bulldogs hosted county rival Trenton. It would met this season. With the tragic events that happened in our community the week before fresh on everyones mind, Bell was needing something to help the healing process begin. Something to feel good about. Something to help bring a bit of normalcy back during a time of so much hurt. Sports have a way of doing that and this night would certainly help. The Lady Dogs entered the match fresh off a 30 sweep of District 5 rival Mayo the night before and were ready to play. As set one started it was obvious the Lady Tigers would not match up well against Bells hard hitting attack. Junior middle blocker/hitter Ashton Mathews took over from the start as Bell went on a 9-1 run with Ashton points off kills. Behind Mathews game high 17 kills and 4 solo blocks the Dogs pulled out to a big lead and went on to win the set 25-16. Set two started with the Tigers taking 3-0 lead to start the set. The Bulldogs settled down behind senior leadership and evened up the score. With the set close, senior setter/outside hitter Raychel Thomas time to serve came up. Behind Thomas game high 8 aces the senior went on a serving tear and blew set two wide open with the Bulldogs winning 25-10. As set three started, the Bell fans had the gym rocking. Again, attacking from every angle, the Bulldogs pulled away from the Tigers, cruising to a 25-7 win for the 3-0 sweep. With the win the Lady Bulldogs improve to 12-2 (4-0 district). Leading players for the Bulldogs were Ashton Mathews with 17 kills and 4 blocks; Raychel Thomas with 13 service points, 8 aces and 13 assists; Katarina Kresovic with 20 digs; Shelbie Hutto with 13 kills and Baylee Rolling with 15 service points and 24 assists. On Thursday, the Lady Bulldogs traveled to Hilliard for a district match up. The last time these two four was on the line. Hilliard won the battle that night in a 5 set thriller. But this is a new year this is a different Bulldog team. Lady Bulldogs on the attack, pulling out to a big lead and cruising to a 25-13 win.

Ray Harrison, Jr., Republican for County Commission Dist. 2 Trenton alumni ll cafeteria with memories By John M Ayers The Trenton High School Alumni Reunion brought alumni, friends and their spouses back to Trenton on Saturday as they celebrated 50 years since the Class of 1964 graduated. A noon affair, the reunion began with a social hour at 11 a.m. as an estimated 200 people gathered in the Trenton Elementary School cafeteria. Graduates came from as far as Arizona, Texas, Virginia, and Idaho to see old friends and renew acquaintances they had not seen in years. John Vickers, a 1968 Trenton High School graduate, former teacher and coach at THS welcomed the alumni. David Welch, a member of the 1953 class, had the honor of presenting a blessing for those attending, service members and the food prepared for the event. The Red Wagon Wheel Cookhouse, which was Prieston Jones, and several members of the elementary school cafeteria staff prepared an assortment of delicious sides to go with the meats The program began as members of the Classes of 1964 and 1965 were recognized. Dan Faircloth, Jr. spoke for the Class of 1964. He fondly spoke of Mrs. Johny Johnson, Mrs. Edna Turner, and Mrs. Louise Coleman as great teachers who really cared for their students and wanted to help them learn. Don Thomas spoke for the Class of 1965. He also spoke of the great teachers at Trenton High School in the 60s and pointed out that the high school basketball team came just two points shy of defeating Cedar Key in a regional championship game. The team became the Suwannee Valley Conference Champs. Mrs. Lizzie Mae Watson, a member of the class of 1941, was the youngest at heart attending. She had family members: son, Charles Watson, and daughters, Linda Pleus and Elsie Watson of Idaho also attending the reunion. She is also the eldest sister of Mrs. Charlene Jones Dalton. The classmates had an opportunity to stand and share stories and experiences they recalled from their days at Trenton High School. It was an opportunity that many enjoyed. Many alumni said they planned to return in two years for the next Trenton High School Alumni Reunion. Committee members who organized the reunion Jennie Lou Colson Sharp, Diana Webb Harrison, Wanda and Prieston Jones were thanked for all their hard work in organizing the event. Maxey Love, Frank Colson and Call Matthews were all members of the Class of 1951 and were members of several Tiger football teams. Dan Faircloth, Jr. is a 1964 graduate of Trenton High School.
