IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell A Bell Elementary School coach is on paid administrative leave following an investigation into a September 9 physical altercation with a fellow teacher. Aaron Halter, a 16-year employee of the Gilchrist County School District, has not returned to school following the incident, pending further administrative action. Information on the incident was made public on Thursday, Oct. 9. That included detailed accounts by 5th grade teachers Sandra Carawan and Erin Sanders as to what happened on September 9. Carawan stated that her class was walking to the PE area around 8:25 a.m. after putting backpacks in the cubby and saying the Pledge and Bulldog Pride Promise. Coach Halter told the class that they had to go back to class because they were late. I walked over to the PE area and asked, Whats the problem? Carawan said. Coach Halter told me that he could not have the class coming in after he already started the other class. He said if the class cannot show up on time they need to go back to class and stay in class. I tried to explain that we are supposed to listen to the news BUT Coach Halter stuck his hand out toward my face. So, I turned around and told my class that we would go back to our classroom. Erin Sanders, a fellow 5th grade teacher stated that she and the other 5th grade teachers were getting ready to meet with administration in Sandra Carawans room when Carawan came in from taking her students to wheel. Sandra came into the classroom crying after having her students sit quietly in the hallway, Sanders recalled. When fellow teacher, Rani Rhodes asked what was wrong, Carawan said that Halter had just refused her class, yelled at her for being late and put his hand up when she went to explain. Sanders explained that the news comes on between 8:15 and 8:20 each morning and the classes MUST watch until the Pledge of Allegiance and Bulldog Pride Promise is said by the kids, making the classes a couple minutes late to wheel each day. Carawan went into the bathroom to collect herself, Sanders said, while she and Mrs. Rhodes watched the kids in the hallway while waiting on BES coach remains on paid leave following investigation the meeting with administration to begin. Since we knew that Mrs. Mathe might be a while, I went over to explain to the P.E. coach, Aaron Halter, the situation with the news each morning and why we were late to wheel class, Sanders stated. He was asking what class was present when the kids yelled, Mrs. Rhodes! By away and said that Mrs. Carawans class would be on their way soon. Sanders said that Halter began yelling They will not be! They will not be! To which she responded, Coach, we have to watch the news He started coming toward me and (like bowing up his chest, like trying to chest bump) I said, No, this is not how we are going to talk about this, Sanders recalled. He then yelled, Go back to your classroom! as he shoved me in the other direction. I said, Do not put your hands on me. Sanders said Halter continued shoving her across the court in front of the students. I then said that Mrs. Mathe and yelled, Well see about that! In telling her account of what happened that Tuesday morning, Sanders said she then went up to the about what had happened. On the day the incident occurred, Schauble was never contacted by BES administration about what had transpired. In telling his version of what occurred, Halter said that students in Sandra Carawans class were sent back to class, and then came back with their teacher. The teacher came at her leisure, she was not told, nor requested to come back, Halter stated. Carawan acted as if she wanted to have a Halter recalled telling her to take her class and leave if she couldnt have them at P.E. on time. He then said thats exactly what happened, Apparently Carawan ran her mouth to Sanders, Halter stated. Erin Sanders, who is a 5th grade a heated discussion. I was not having any of that and told her to leave and go back to her classroom. She kept getting closer to me, so I stopped her by putting my hands out, she complained about me touching her and threatened me with the law, I told her, Fine, no problem. Halter recalled. director of human resources for the Gilchrist County School District, and has worked at Bell Middle-High School and Bell Elementary School during his 16 years with the District. Over the course of his employment, Halter has had at least two other issues working at Bell High School when he took a student by the arm and turned him around to go back to his seat. Following the incident Buddy time told Halter, Be aware that at no time should you place your hands on a student unless it is to protect yourself or another student. You must refrain from any physical contact with any student unless it meets the standards set forth by the state board of education as authorized by Florida Statute 232.273. Any further action may result in disciplinary action against you. Later, on February 4, 2009, Halter was working at Bell Elementary School when Michelle Smith, who was principal at the time, reported that he exhibited unsafe behavior in the school parking lot. The principal said that when she arrived at the school at 7 a.m. she heard a vehicle near Bell Elementary with a loud engine. She turned to see it and recognized Halters white truck. Smith said he was driving east on Bell Avenue turning into the front of the BES parking lot. Initially, she said she thought he was pulling in to park, but he continued to drive through the parking lot and circle back to Bell Avenue. Smith said the cycle occurred at least three times and on one occasion, he blew the horn at her as she was waiting for him to stop so that she could speak with him. Out of concern for unusual behavior and safety for students and after he didnt stop and attempted to call him on the cell phone, Smith stated. He did not answer. The principal said she continued to hear a truck engine in the area and she asked Carolyn Thomas to call answer, so she called the Gilchrist Sandra Carawan was also involved in the 2009 incident with Halter. At that time, she said she was turning onto Bell Avenue at the same time Halter was coming across the front of the Bell High School parking lot. I waved to Aaron as I passed by him, Carawan stated. As I passed Aaron, he revved his engine and squealed his tires. I thought he was going to hit me as he came onto the road. He stayed real close behind me until we passed the last portable building. He then backed off and proceeded to Bell Elementary Schools parking lot. Within approximately 5-10 minutes, Halter returned to the BES campus and parked in front of the school. [Assistant Principal] Sherry Lindsey, who had remained in front of the school, walked with me to his vehicle. I asked him if all was ok. He responded that it was none of our d--business. I replied that it was our business because our job was to keep students and staff safe at Bell Elementary and it appeared he was having a bad day. He again said we should not worry about him and that he walked past both Mrs. Lindsey Halter apologized for his behavior and left the campus a short time later. This incident was reported to the Department of Educations Services. After a careful review of Smith, commissioner of education, determined in 2010 that there was no probable cause to pursue disciplinary action against Halters Florida On September 26, 2014 Bible of Professional Practices Services letting them know of Halters latest possible violation of the Florida School Code or State Board of Education rules. In that letter, Bible stated, Mr. Halter has been accused of inappropriate interactions with a colleague including physical altercation. Halter has admitted to this accusation. Following the incident, Halter was immediately removed from his teaching position and placed on suspension during an administrative investigation that was held September 9-11. Halter was then observed by Superintendent Robert Rankin in his regular teaching position for one full day, September 12. Since then he has been on paid administrative leave, pending further administrative action. On September 26, 2014 Superintendent Robert Rankin wrote Halter a letter stating, This letter constitutes in writing the particulars of our discussion held at the district was explained to you the behavior you displayed on September 9, 2014 towards another teacher was unacceptable. The day after the incident Superintendent Rankin met with discussed with him conduct unbecoming, which is inappropriate interactions with a colleague, a physical altercation. When asked how long Aaron Halter will remain on paid leave before any administrative action is taken, whether that means his employment is terminated, or he returns to BES as a coach, School Board attorney Lindsey Lander would only say, This is a process that has to work itself out. Fanning Springs will have a new mayor By Carrie A. Mizell Voters want change in the Fanning Springs city government. That was made clear on Tuesday, Oct. 7 when the largest voter turnout in city history was reported. Incumbent Cheryl Nekola received just 37 votes in her bid for reelection as Fanning Springs mayor, a position she has held for eight years.

CALL 352-463-8448 Like us on Facebook TireWarehouse The girls and I got a little carried away last weekend for Allie Claires big birthday trip to Atlanta. We traveled to North Point Mall in Alpharetta, Georgia for the American Girl store in celebration of Allies 6th birthday. Carrie and Adam gave Allie the choice of a traditional party at home with little friends, or a trip to the American Girl store for a doll. Allie Claire has wanted one of the dolls for a long time, but her parents have been putting her off, waiting for her to get old enough to take good care of the doll. She chose the American Girl doll, so off we went on Friday morning. Our trip was a lot of fun and we all really enjoyed it. The American Girl people truly know how to do up a birthday party. Allies new doll was given a booster seat and a tea cup and saucer so she could have lunch with us at the stores bistro. It really was cute and a very special memory that no grandmother would want to miss. As you have likely guessed by now, the girls in our family get some kind of excited about a trip and what started out as an overnight trip to Atlanta turned into a weekend trip. After the party, we still had half a day for some fall fun, so we headed north to Blue Ridge, Georgia. We shopped the small shops down by the railroad tracks in the heart of town, which is located just on the edge of the Smoky Mountains. The leaves were just beginning to turn and we saw several trees in the quaint downtown area that were bursting with beautiful fall color. When you looked out across the mountains you could see orange and gold trees scattered amongst the green trees. Before we left town we made a quick trip to Mercier Orchards to bring back a bag or two of apples. If you have ever visited Mercier Orchards you know it is a really busy place in the fall. The apples are always so good, we dont mind on a fall visit. We left the mountains and headed toward home on Saturday afternoon. Our last night was spent in Woodstock, Georgia which is just a little north of Atlanta. We checked into our hotel and I suggested that we go look downtown for a locally owned restaurant. We try to eat local when we can and we have found that many Georgia towns have good locally-owned restaurants. We found Woodstock alive and well when we drove downtown about 7 p.m. The town had four or booming business. Several live bands were playing at restaurants scattered in the downtown area. It was a fun evening, as the music and nice people made for a wonderful atmosphere. After dining on really good pizza at Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza we walked slowly down the sidewalk toward our car, which was on the other end of the downtown area. We were looking in the windows of several cute shops and boutiques and started noticing that several were still open at 8 p.m. Wow, shopping at night, how fun! One of the sweet young women who was running a boutique we really liked called Be You...On Purpose, said that staying open late was part of their downtown revitalization program to bring business back to the area. So, we had a really good time shopping several downtown shops before heading to our hotel. We noticed a lot of children running around as their parents sat on benches and outside restaurants visiting with friends while enjoying the music. All in all, it was just a fun atmosphere, in a good way, with the music, friendly people, and cool fall weather. Sometimes when traveling its the unexpected things like spending the evening in Old Town Woodstock that make for a fun trip. The next morning we drove back downtown to see what we had missed in the dark. We noticed a tea room, cupcake shop, antiques shops, interior design shops, a book store, jewelry boutique, a quilt store, yarn store and much, much more. Carrie and I decided that next time we have some extra time near Atlanta we will go back to Woodstock in the daytime and explore the town, which seemed to have a lot to offer during the day as well as on Friday and Saturday nights when some shops are open until 9 in the evening. Oh, what fun we had on Allies special birthday trip, coming home with apples, pecans and Allies new baby doll, Kittredge.

Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in the United States of America when many friends and families sit down to a bountiful feast and give thanks for our freedoms and opportunities as developed by the wisdom of our Founders. While all citizens are guaranteed freedom, we have an opportunity to help those in need to celebrate our day of Thanksgiving. Thanks to the continued generous contributions of area businesses and residents, the GSV will be able, once again, to provide Thanksgiving turkeys and all the 18th. year. This year, the GSV will focus on families with school age or younger children. The four schools and service organizations provide lists of eligible families in order to ensure that the distribution is made to those most in need. Since the focus is on children, there will be an alternative to provide a Thanksgiving dinner to single individuals and couples. The Trenton Community Nazarene Church has offered to provide a Thanksgiving dinner at the Trenton Community Center for those in need, but without school age or younger children. You may call (352) 463-1057 and ask for Denise who will send you a ticket to the event. This is necessary in order to get a head count and the number of turkeys needed. Please do not wait until the last minute to call. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SHERIFFS OFFICE. This is a Sheriffs Volunteers program and if you have extenuating circumstances, have a special request, or questions, please call our Director, Milli Blalock, at (352) 463-6570. She will do her best to assist you. Turkey distribution dates and times will be announced at a later date. If any business or former contributor did not receive a letter of appeal, you may mail a check payable to the GSV Food Drive and mail it to P.O. Box 1235, Trenton, FL 32693.

Yencho REP DEM When someone is really important to us, we will go to great lengths to be with them, or even just to see them or hear their voice. A young man recently told me about how his girlfriend, who is not a morning person, came out at 7 a.m. to cheer him on in a 5K he was running. Going out of her way to be there was a loud and clear statement to him that he is valuable to her! A Samaritan Woman shared a similar experience as Jesus contradicted the cultural norm between the Jews and So He (Jesus) came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there, and Jesus, tired as He was from His journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, Will you give me a drink? (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to Him, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink? (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) John 4:5-9 As the writer of this gospel, John was inspired by the Holy Spirit to tell us of the prejudice between the Jews and Samaritans that we may see beyond the surface of what is taking place. One thing is certain; the Scriptures do not condone prejudice the condition that was present. Jesus went out of His way to pursue her despite this condition. means to pre-judge. This happens when we arrive at an opinion of a person, or group of people, without any input on their part. This being the case, the origins of prejudice can usually be traced to the past. In II records the Assyrian conquer and resettlement of the nation of Israel by bringing in people from many other countries. This mixture of people came to be known as Samaritans and was despised by the Jews, so much so that the typical travel routes involved going the long way around the region of Samaria, avoiding the area at all costs. to discuss, because it often evokes strong emotions. However, it is unlikely that any of us avoid stopping by the store for fear of bumping into a Samaritan, so this passage can help us look at prejudice a little more objectively. Here are a few truths we Prejudice is a waste of time and energy. Prejudice may not cause us to travel completely around an entire town, but it will never work for the building up of the kingdom of God. Sadly, we have all witnessed evidence of how it works against it. Prejudice never travels alone; pride and fear are constant companions. Consider why prejudice demands isolation. If we get to know someone personally, those pre-judged ideas become harder to justify. Walking with Christ will expose any prejudice in our thinking. In the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke issue of a Samaritan being the neighbor to the Jew. It is Gods desire that none should perish, but that all will have eternal lifeprejudice gets in the way by preventing the spread of the gospel to everyone. As we seek to walk with Christ, lets make sure we only go out of our way to pursue, not avoid, because every heart matters...

Because loyalty involves service it also must demonstrate encouragement toward others in hard times, pointing out the good in others, and honoring ones country, as well. the quality or state of being faithful to a person or institution to whom ones a person to that to which he/she is loyal. The Character Council of Gilchrist County is pleased to introduce its choice as personality of the month. Mrs. Lorrie Akin has proven her loyalty in so many aspects of life as a wife, mother, community activist, and employee at the Trenton Library. Akin is committed to doing anything she is asked to do and sees it through until the end. Akin believes that everyone reaps what they have sown. During the interview, she shared, If loyalty is what I desire from others, then I must demonstrate it myself. She mentioned that recently she heard some negative talk about a leader of a civic organization, in which she volunteers. She felt that she needed to be loyal by being submissive to the leadership of this person, by defending that leadership. She mentioned, I believe that submitting to leadership is a test of loyalty. Akin added the following wise is a displacement of values to loyalty. The attitude is, when the going gets tough, move on. This current trend has caused the breakdown in marriages, in the family, in the church, and in all kinds of relationships. Loyalty is so important to Mrs. Akin that she added, When someone offends me, the best way to be loyal to my convictions is to forgive them, and then by not giving up on the offender, for there may be something good which can come out of the offence which has been forgiven. The Character Council holds its meeting every 4th Tuesday, 10 a.m. at the Trenton Library meeting room. Anyone interested in attending is cordially invited.

Yencho REP DEM Name: John Yencho Democrat I am a teacher at Trenton High School and have taught Architectural Design & Construction there for 20 years. My family and I moved to Gilchrist County from Ohio 21 years ago. I sincerely believe there is more we can do in this county with the resources we have. I believe my experience as a teacher in this county and general manager of a large engineering and construction experience in managing budgets, human resources, infrastructure maintenance and growth, and community development. I have years and have seen them have to leave their family and friends to we need to do more for them. I am energy into serving you and them. That is the reason I am running. the experience, the energy, the fortitude and the determination to facing in the future for the good of this county. It is time for new ideas, for fresh ideas, for ideas that will create a better future for Gilchrist County and all its people in the years and will help to create jobs for our people, to promote the right growth, to strengthen our infrastructure, and to support our law enforcement and emergency services as strongly as possible and feasible. I believe I am the best candidate to do this job at this time. hundreds of subdivisions in Gilchrist County that very few people are start the residential construction industry and get some homes built school district that has been in the top 5 school districts in our state for rural agricultural community to raise children in that we all call home; we have the Suwannee River and many springs to play in; we have low taxes, and most importantly we have a family oriented friendly, safe place many would love to call home. People are moving into our state every day; they are moving up from south Florida, they are leaving them into these subdivisions. In doing so we will create construction jobs for our citizens, bring much needed revenue to our county and create a need for more supportive businesses and increase the business to come to our county through our chamber of commerce and our Economic Development Committee. have the experience and the energy to go after bringing new business to our communities to support and attract people into our subdivisions. Those businesses will need employees to jobs for our people and taxes for our county budget. None of this will internet to attract those businesses and assist our existing businesses. The internet will also help our students to will help our businesses to compete more effectively and it will give our people access to resources they with the other commissioners, the Economic Development Committee and our Chamber of Commerce to develop a plan that will achieve these goals and create jobs for our people. I believe the most pressing needs for our infrastructure or capital projects is to realize what is essential and move forward on promoting the right growth in our county to help create sooner or later we will not have the money to do what is needed without raising taxes, therefore we must act need to support our infrastructure and capital projects today and tomorrow. However my head is not in the sand, I or any county. conservative wise judgment on not only where and how we spend your money, but better ways to do more with what we have. I am not in favor of cutting any services or positions of county personnel. I am in favor of getting the most out of every dollar create revenue without raising taxes and not just maintaining our current levels of service, but improving them wherever and however possible Of course we all realize that raising taxes may be necessary, but I would only support it after all other avenues have been exhausted. There will always be mandates coming down from Tallahassee that we have to meet, these will always cause burden to our budget. There will always be more to do than we have funds to do it with. Knowing this, we need to meet these challenges head on by allowing controlled growth in our county to increase our tax base, and help us to offset those mandated requirements. New construction means new taxes. must prepare in advance to meet those challenges with prudent, wise decisions on our budget now. No one all love it here so much. I believe we wise decisions while still providing meeting those challenges head on. I to do this. As I have already stated many times, controlled, with the other commissioners, the Economic Development Committee, the Chamber of Commerce, and the business people and citizens of our county, we can not only meet and resolve these challenges, but we can elected, do more with the resources we have.
