The baby stood nearby in a dirty playpen, chewing silently on a keychain and watching his older siblings antics. Once they reached the hammock, the children climbed up and began swinging to and fro, occasionally stopping to fuss amongst themselves, or steal a glance at their mother. She stood nearby, from the Gilchrist County Sheriffs As her children played, the 33-yearold mother stood behind her tan SUV had been making methamphetamine in her yard. The home she rents sits directly across the street from Bell Elementary School at 2730 NW 10th Street in Bell. Barr was arrested and charged with three counts of Sale of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine) (School). While executing the search amount of drug paraphernalia and controlled substances on the property, so additional charges are pending. Gilchrist County Judge Sheree Lancaster set Athena Marie Barrs bond at $300,000. Prior to her arrest, Barr had no criminal history. Her boyfriend, Osman David Mendoza Vasquez, 27, of Bell, was also handcuffed and standing in the yard. He was charged with Out of County Warrant (Levy County) for Failure to Appear (No Valid Drivers License). He is being held in the Levy County Jail on a $2,000 bond. Barrs four children were turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families. The search warrant at Athena Barrs home was executed on the last day of September as part of Operation Fair Warning, which is an ongoing effort to investigate and arrest individuals who sell, distribute or possess illegal narcotics in Gilchrist County. Today were going to put a big dent into the drug trade in Gilchrist County, Sheriff Bobby Schultz told from the Columbia County Drug Task Force, Levy County Sheriffs Police Department. In August, the sheriff issued a message to every drug dealer in Gilchrist County and that message was, not in our county. When I was running for sheriff, one of the biggest areas of concern that citizens had was the drug problem that plagued our county, Schultz said. During that time, I promised to do all I could to protect our citizens from those selling/providing illegal narcotics and the crimes that derive from that illegal activity. After a three month long investigation, Operation Fair Warning resulted in the arrest of 12 Gilchrist County residents on illegal narcotic violations and other outstanding warrants. Those arrested include: Carroll Dudley Barron, II, 36, of Bell, on charges of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of More than 20 grams Cannabis, and Cultivation of Cannabis x7. Judge Sheree Lancaster set bond at $42,500. Joseph Cannon, 35, of Bell, on charges of Sale of Amphetamine, Manufacture/Production of Amphetamine, Sale of Amphetamine, Manufacture/Production of Amphetamine. Gilchrist County Judge Sheree Lancaster set bond at $150,000. Christopher John Goldthorpe, II, 31, of Bell, on charges of Sale of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine), Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine), Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine) and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Gilchrist County Judge Sheree Lancaster set bond at $285,000. Tammy Diane Hazelwood, 45, of Wannee, on charges of Sale of a Controlled Substance (Roxicodone) (Park). Gilchrist County Judge Sheree Lancaster set bond at $100,000. Christopher Bernard Jackson, 41, of Trenton, on charges of Attempt to Sell Crack Cocaine, Tampering with Evidence, Burglary with Battery, Grand Theft and Petit Theft. Gilchrist Athena Barr Clayton App Carroll Barron By John M. Ayers An Ocala man died on Monday afternoon after crashing a Tidewater Trucking tractor trailer at the intersection of CR 307 and US 129. The Florida Highway Patrol reported the accident occurred at 2 p.m. when the truck crossed the southbound lane and continued north into a fence row on the west edge of the right-of-way of US 129. The 1998 Mack truck crashed into a line of oak trees. Ronnie Lancaster, 38, of Ocala, was driving the truck which transports powdered concrete in bulk form. Corporal W.G. Smith of the Florida Highway Patrol reported the cause of the crash is still under investigation. The truck ran into the heavily wooded fence row where it glanced off a tree during impact. A large tree caught and stopped the trailer from passing through the fence row. The cab portion was severely damaged as the impact removed a tire and other equipment from the steering mechanism of the truck. The rig was reported to have sustained an estimated $40,000 in damages. Gilchrist County EMS pronounced the driver deceased at the scene.

Scarecrows for National 4-H Week The Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners passed a proclamation on Monday, Oct. 6 recognizing October 5-11 as National 4-H Week. As in years past, each 4-H club in the county was invited to take part in a 4H scarecrow contest this week. Dedicated 4-H members, along with parents and leaders braved the rain on Friday night to put up their scarecrows, while other scarecrows went up on the court house lawn on Saturday and Sunday. By Monday morning, a number of scarecrows dressed as everything from witches to farmers to Mr. Chris DeCubellis playing a guitar decorated the court house lawn. The scarecrows will be on display throughout the month of October. Judging will be held later this month and the winners will be announced in the newspaper. We really have some blue ribbon youth in Gilchrist County, DeCubellis told the county commissioners on Monday. The commissioners agreed and thanked the 4-H agent for all the time he has invested working with local youth over the last nine years.

Im not sure if its the decorations, the cooler weather or the busy schedule we all seem to have in October. It seems that from October to Christmas passes in a blink for me each year. We have some wonderful pumpkins this year out by the front door. Every time I pass by, those pumpkins make me smile. I guess those big orange pumpkins are just a sign of the changing season. My brother grew some real pretty blue Hubbard this summer. Bless his heart, he shared some with our family for Fall baking. I will make pumpkin pies just the front porch. Our grandchildren are busy planning their Halloween costumes, while Im trying to decide what kind of candy to buy. This time of year brings on changes in the kitchen also. Menu planning turns from summers cool salads to stews, roast and soups. Apples tarts or pumpkin pies with lots of cinnamon are wonderful desserts as we begin to get a few cooler days. I have a little tip about peeling pumpkins if you intend to cook pumpkin this year. Because the shells are so hard its better to soften the shell through baking for a little while before cutting in half to remove seeds. Wash and dry the pumpkin and place in a 300 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes. Take out and let cool. Now, the pumpkin can be cut in half and seeds removed. Also, you can peel it easily and cube up to use in fall soups or stews. Yep, pumpkin is good in stew just dont add it to the stew too early or it will cook to mush. Ok, I know it is much easier to buy pumpkin in the can, but it is amazing how much better fresh pumpkin is. The easiest way to make homemade pumpkin puree is cut a pumpkin in half and place cut side down on baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until pumpkin is tender when you insert a knife. After it cools, drain it well in a colander for several hours. You can also put it into a bowl and squeeze even more water out by pressing with a wooden spoon. It freezes well for several months in a zip top freezer bag. In case you have never purchased pumpkins to cook with, please do not try to cook with the big orange jack olantern pumpkins, they are not good for cooking. The best fall cooking pumpkins might just be the sugar pie pumpkin, its sweet and small. A 4 pound pumpkin yields only about 1 to 2 cups mashed cooked pumpkin. The following recipe is so simple to make and you dont even have to bake it. Easy Pumpkin Cheese Cake Ginger Snap cookies 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 8 ounce cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup sugar 1 cup pumpkin puree or cooked canned pumpkin 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup whipped topping Make one cup of ginger snap crumbs by putting about 10 cookies in a zip top bag and rolling with rolling pin or put cookies into bowl of food processor with knife blade and pulse until cookies become crumbs. Mix crumbs with melted butter. Place crumb mixture into bottom of 8 x 8 Pyrex dish or pan and press into a crust. Beat cream cheese and sugar until and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir or fold in the whipped topping. Spread pumpkin mixture over the ginger snap crust. Top pumpkin mixture with additional whipped topping and chill for two hours. When serving, dip out with a spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle a little pumpkin pie spice over the whipped topping to garnish. If you desire, drizzle with caramel sauce. Easy Caramel Sauce In a pot over medium heat place 12 unwrapped caramel candies and 3 tablespoons half and half or milk. Stir until caramel candy melts, remove from heat and let cool. Over the weekend I noticed a large bite on the arm of my almost 3-yearold. Whitt loves bugs and bugs love miles away just to feast on his fair skin. I knew this bite in particular didnt look much like a mosquito bite. It was raised and large in diameter with a red ring surrounding it. I kept an eye on it and by Sunday I started getting nervous, as red streaks were noticeably coming from the bite. I was worried a spider had bitten him and I had waited too long to take him to the ER. My nervous mama mind kicked into overdrive as I envi sioned his arm turning black and fall ing off. The state would deem me un off by DCF. In our defense, I have to say weve made that trip to the ER several times already and I wasnt in a hurry to re peat the experience. I tried in vain to talk to Whitt about what had bitten him. I asked, Whitt, did a spider bite your arm? He looked at me with his big blue eyes and in all seriousness told me that a lightning bug bit his arm while he was play ing in the woods one night. I tried not to laugh, and did really well, until he told me that he shot the lightning bug and buried it in our backyard. The good news, my neighborhood is safe now. The bad news being that my boy apparently has a fondness for storytelling (or telling lies as his big sister told him, with a shake of her head). It was almost as if his little nose grew longer before our very eyes. Bless his heart, he doesnt know his momma is busy worrying about things like ISIS, Ebola, Enterovirus 68, and all the other horrors shown nightly on the national news. Its got ten so bad, I wont let my kids watch the news. I think 5 and 2 is just a little young for coverage of alleged sexual assaults by college athletes, drone attacks and ISIS beheadings. Call me old fashioned, but Im not sure I want my children to know whats go ing on in the world we live in. They wouldnt sleep at night. Speaking of Ebola, Wesley As bell, environmental manager for the Gilchrist County Health Department, sent me some information on Flori das preparedness for Ebola. At press time, Florida had no con man tested negative for Ebola on Sunday, Governor Rick Scott had the Department of Health order 30 ad ditional testing kits from the CDC and 100 units of additional high-level personal protective equipment. According to Asbell, the Florida Deparment of Health is working in consultation with the CDC to deter mine on a case-by-case basis whether testing for Ebola is necessary. Thank goodness no one in Gilchrist County has required Ebola testing. On Monday, Governor Rick Scott released the following statement, We know from our experience in re sponding to hurricanes that we must prepare for the worst even as we hope for the best. The faculty and staff of Bell Elementary School would like to thank all of those in our community and sur rounding communities for the outreach that we received during our recent time of need. We have received cards, food, support from various organizations, and many, many prayers. Trees have been planted on our campus that will memorialize the angels that we lost, and we are thankful for all of those who assisted us in our efforts to reach out to the family and friends of those who were gravely marked by such a great loss. It is wonderful to know that we are surrounded by the good people of Gilchrist County (and surrounding counties) who stand together in unity in a time of great need. May God bless you all! Thank You The Gilchrist County Economic Development Advisory Committee urges Gilchrist County residents to VOTE YES for jobs and growth when marking their ballots in the upcoming election. On that ballot, voters will see a provision entitled Referendum to Determine the Granting of Economic Development Ad Valorem Tax Exemptions It is the last question listed on the back of the ballot. The Committee advocates for passage because we think it may help bring jobs to our county, and improve the general business climate for economic development. If voters agree, the Board of County Commissioners will have the authority to set up guidelines for new or expanding businesses to apply for temporary tax breaks. The Commissioners are not required to Each application is considered on a case-by-case basis. To get temporary tax relief, these businesses have to add good paying full-time jobs. Granting this authority does not increase anyone elses taxes. It only affects county real estate and personal property taxes for improvements. It does not affect land or school taxes. If passed, temporary relief may be permitted for up to 10 years. The authority granted to the Commission by voters also expires in 10 years.

Their interest isnt to survey the damage, but devastation. For example, following the deadly tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004, engineers from the US and Canada examined structures and buildings that withstood this force of nature to better understand how to prevent such ruin in the future. Of particular interest was the foundation of any buildings that remained in comparison to those that were swept away. Anyone who has ever experienced building a home, even under normal conditions, understands the importance of a solid foundation. If the foundation is not adequate, Matthew 7:24-27, the Bible records Jesus similar warning: Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mind and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. This passage communicates a powerful message to believers whose foundation has become based more on curb appeal than the Word of God. Curb appeal has become our basis of what others can see matters more than the condition of our heart. Notice that both the wise and the foolish man hears these words of mine. It is possible to attend church every Sunday and hear Gods Word and not allow it to be the standard and support for our lives. Perhaps we are just attending church because the outside. The problem with curb appeal is Jesus was pretty straight forward in John 16:33 when He warned us, In this world you will have trouble hurricanes and tsunamis will come into our marriages and families. No amount of curb appeal will hold things together during these times, and if our foundation is insubstantial, our families will crash; if the foundation is solid, we will not fall. In Psalm 117:2, the Bible declares, For great is his love towards us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. It is interesting to note that the Hebrew word for faithfulness has the same root word as a foundational pillar. The implication is something that cannot that endures forever. Lets build the foundation for our marriages, homes, and relationships on the faithfulness curb appeal that will be swept away, because your heart matters! Branford Presbyterian Church to celebrate 128th anniversary Branford Presbyterian congregation will joyfully celebrate their 128th Anniversary of the founding of the church on Sunday, Oct. 12.
