At just under 12,000 square feet, the Walmart Express will sell gas, grocceries, retail items and have a pharmacy. The store will be constructed along State Road 26, on 2.67 acres of a 10 acre tract, located across SR 26 from Wilson Mobile Homes. The worlds largest retailer is expected to offer 30 jobs at the new Walmart Express store. According to Walmarts website, Express stores began popping up in 2011 and there are currently 20 stores in the United States. As dollar stores have grown in popularity over the last several years, Walmart launched Walmart Express stores to bring everyday low prices in a smaller format store. Walmart Express typically shelves 11,000 to 13,000 items, which range from sausage, fresh produce and milk to DVDs, cosmetics and undershirts. A Walmart Express similar to the store planned for Trenton is currently being constructed in Interlachen. By Carrie A. Mizell As she lifted her shirt to show where her right breast used to be, Sherrie Jenkins called the cancer that ravaged her body a blessing. Diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 46, Mrs. Jenkins said her long, painful journey has brought peace and an attitude of thankfulness unlike anything she knew before. Ironically, it was during Breast Cancer Awareness Month two years ago that Mrs. Jenkins felt a knot high on her right breast. She was lying in bed with her husband reading one Saturday night when she reached her hand up to scratch and felt the dense knot. She asked her husband Steve to feel the knot and he immediately said, You need to call the doctor. On Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, Mrs. Jenkins called her doctor who immediately recommended a mammogram, even though she wasnt due for her annual mammogram until December. The mammogram showed nothing, but Mrs. Jenkins Breast cancer survivor calls her journey a blessing Newman, in this July 1, 2013 photo. was insistent that she felt a knot, so an ultrasound followed, and later a needle biopsy. At the time, Mrs. Jenkins was working at the front desk of Trenton Elementary School. On October 29, 2012, she remembers working all day at the school before going to Dr. Tina See BREAST CANCER on page 4 Fanning Springs Candidate Forum Oct. 23 Friends of Fanning will be hosting a Candidate Forum on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. Candidates for Fanning Springs mayor, Rodger Nogaki and Howell Trip Lancaster, as well as candidates for Council Seat 4, Whitney Stoney Smith and Ron Queen, are expected to speak.

Yencho Democrat For County Commissioner Dist. 2 Vote For County Commissioner District 2 JOHN YENCHO There is More We Can Do With The Resources We Have I have proudly had many opportunities to share with you my qualifications as a candidate for County Commissioner. I now would like to share with you what I want to accomplish if elected to the office I seek. The following are just three of the things I intend to work on once elected: I would like to reopen the discussion on bringing Broadband & High Speed internet to all areas of Gilchrist County making it available to all residents who want it. This is a priority because our students need it to further their education; our businesses need it to be able to compete in the 21st. century; our citizens need it to be able to access resources currently unavailable or difficult to get without it. I believe every citizen of Gilchrist County deserves to have their needs and concerns not only heard, but considered and evaluated. This does not mean that I will always agree with you, it does mean I will listen and consider what you have to say and make an informed decision on it. I believe our law enforcement and fire-emergency services need our full support. We must be able to provide the best possible services to all people who live in our county. This means working to make sure these departments have everything they need to do their jobs in our ever changing world.

On a trip to Alabama a month or so ago I picked up a new cookbook that from Mississippi who grew up there in the late 1940s. Lorraine Leggett Lott wrote in great detail in her self-published cookbook, Southern Homemade about her early years and how life was in her home state when she was growing up. She told of how her family lived in that era, including her account of picking cotton for $1 per 100 pounds. I found her life very interesting and her recipes about as Southern as can be. Ms. Lott was asked to describe what being Southern means and she described it as, We are geographically distinct, we love homemade food served with some regularity. We also share a close-knit community and family life. Being Southern in the old days meant knowing all your relatives and not hiding any of the crazy ones out in the smoke house when company came to visit. It also meant knowing all your neighbors, and their relatives as well. Being Southern meant if any of the above mentioned family or neighbors were sick or if someone died the community would spontaneously converge on the persons home with cakes, casseroles, snacks, and beverages. Being Southern meant Sunday Supper would be a special family time, that Fridays would be spent at the Fish Camp, and that despite our often company arrived from New Orleans or Birmingham, would be served on the sun peek through the roof of our what my mama would prepare for special occasions. I have fond memories of my grandmothers table loaded with bowls of wonderful vegetables, two meats, deviled eggs, sliced tomatoes, and her homemade pickles in a pretty relish dish. Her table was so loaded with wonderful food that as a child I wondered how the table legs could hold it up. True to her heritage my grandmother always spread her table with a pretty cloth. Ms. Lott also wrote about one of our most endearing traits, our unique language. Throughout the South our accents are different, but each wonderful in its own way. She expressed sadness that all the once common colloquialisms are disappearing. She wrote, Our language is part and more directly as being from the Ozarks, the Bayou, or the Delta. According to Ms. Lott, to achieve Southern style you must practice relaxed elegance. A Southern meal is a happening, not just an eat-and-run affair. That is if they are done right! Ms. Lott explained. This week, I looked back in my time favorite Fall soup recipes. This recipe is so good, and if you make a serve with this soup you will have a wonderful supper on a cool evening. Lofty Branch Sausage Soup 1 pound fresh sausage meat or link smoked sausage cut in 1/2 in pieces 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup diced onion 1 clove garlic, minced 1 cup sliced carrots 1 teaspoon dried basil 2 small zucchini, sliced 1 16-ounce can whole tomatoes chopped and undrained 2 cans beef broth 1 cup hot water salt and pepper to taste 1 16-ounce can great northern beans, undrained Brown sausage meat in oil in a deep heavy pot. Add onion, garlic, carrots medium heat stirring often. Add zucchini, tomatoes, broth, water, cabbage, salt and pepper. Bring soup to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Add beans and cook another 20 minutes. Recipe makes 8 servings. It saddened me to pick up the Journal to read the article on BES Coach remains on paid leave following investigation. First of all, people have bad days but telling a one sided story is not the answer. After reading this I felt like it was slander towards Aaron Halter. The more I read the more I felt like I would never buy another Journal again. I have known Aaron Halter for many years to know that all that was put in the Journal was not fair he is such a wonderful teacher. I have a lot of respectable things to say about him and I know I am not the only one. I also have four children who keep asking when will he come back hopefully soon! We are blessed at Bell Elementary School to have such wonderful people who are teachers as well as staff. What a hard job that is and what a wonderful job everybody does. Instead of kicking someone when they are down help them up!! Heidi Cannon McDowell Trenton students dressed in blue on Tuesday for Stomp Out Bullying day. When I heard this, I thought it seemed an unlikely choice for a homecoming theme day, but no less a good one. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, close to half of all children will deal with school bullying at some point in elementary, middle or high school. Last week, I happened to talk with a local mother whose daughter attends Trenton Middle-High School and has recently been the subject of bullying. My heart ached for the girl as her mother relayed some of the horrible things several of her classmates had said to her and about her. Then she told me about how a group of friends, some of whom the girl didnt even know were her friends, left sticky notes on her locker with encouraging words written on each note. Apparently, after they witnessed the girl being bullied they each took a few minutes to write down one thing they liked about her on a sticky note and the notes were then placed on the front of her locker. I cant even imagine how encouraged the girl must have felt, just to know that her classmates cared about her. Students who are being bullied often fear going to school. In many cases, their grades drop, they become withdrawn, get depressed and have a broken self-image. When we were kids, I remember kids picking on other kids, but it was nothing like it is today. Cyber bullying has taken these attacks to a whole new level. Now anyone can post rumors on sites like Facebook, share embarrassing pictures or videos As the Trenton mother told me, she reminded her daughter that the only reason a few of her classmates were picking on her was because she has something they want, or they think by bullying her they are better than her. Bullying is never ok. Please monitor what your children are posting on social media, read the text messages they are sending out and receiving and monitor their phone calls. There is a strong link between bullying and suicide. Though many adults still see bullying as just part of being a kid, it is a serious problem. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. And for every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. A recent study in Great Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying. Of those, 10 to 14 year old girls may be at an even higher risk. Remember at the end of the day, your childs only advocate is you. Its they just have so many other things going on, so you must be vigilant.

Well, you have cancer, Dr. Lam to meet with the Jenkins. Within seconds, Steve had passed out on the Hes a planner, and this was something we hadnt planned, for cancer? Recalling the day of her diagnosis, Mrs. Jenkins said she was comforted by the knowledge that her cancer was curable. On November 8, 2012, Mrs. Jenkins said she went into North Florida Regional Hospital to have radioactive dye injected into her body to see if the Stage 2 breast cancer had spread into her lymph nodes. It was a burning, painful process that brought tears to her eyes. Ultimately it was determined that Mrs. Jenkins cancer had spread into two of 18 possible lymph nodes surrounding the area. Mrs. Jenkins opted for a mastectomy, and because the cancer had spread into two lymph nodes, she also had to undergo chemotherapy and radiation. Satan overwhelmed Steve and Sherrie with fear the night before sat reading a large folder full of information about chemotherapy. We were so scared, just thinking about all the poison they were going to be putting in my body, Mrs. Jenkins said. I didnt know if chemo was going to kill me or if it was going to cure me. That night the phone rang and the Jenkins were called upon to help needed rescuing. It was such a blessing, Mrs. Jenkins said, with a shake of her head. God got our mind off the chemo. It was a blessing to be able to help someone else. treatments sent her to the emergency room with a high fever, Mrs. Jenkins knew she would not be able to return to her job at Trenton Elementary School. By her second chemo treatment, she was completely bald. to be born in the spring of 2013, Mrs. Jenkins worried that her last chemo treatment might keep her from the birth, but as God would have it, Harlee was born two days before her In May 2013, Mrs. Jenkins started underwent a total of 35 treatments. When Harlee was eight weeks old, her mother Lynsey Jenkins Parrish went back to work and Harlee started staying with her grandmother during the day and therefore went to most radiation treatments with her Meme. Once chemo and radiation ended, Mrs. Jenkins found herself in fullblown menopause. Never a fan of surgeries, she opted not to have reconstructive surgery, despite learning that implants were not an option because she had undergone radiation. Where her right breast once was, Mrs. Jenkins now has a small scar. So many women dont know that you dont have to have a 15 inch scar, Mrs. Jenkins said. Dr. Lam did such a good job with my surgery. Mrs. Jenkins, who had no close family history of breast cancer, underwent genetic testing to determine inherited cancer risk, and that test came back negative. I had to know for Lynsey and for Harlee, Mrs. Jenkins said. Today, simple things like needing a haircut are reasons to celebrate. Mrs. Jenkins days are spent keeping her sweet granddaughter Harlee. She also reaches out to encourage others who are diagnosed goes in for a checkup, and every other visit she has an ultrasound. After chemo, she can no longer stand the thought of eating the Big Mac sandwich she once loved, or drinking Coca-Cola. Her diet has changed and she is now eating healthier foods. Mrs. Jenkins said she thinks cancer feeds on sugar and stress. A week after I had my mastectomy, I got a letter in the mail from a girl I went to high school with. She said she hated that I was having to go through breast cancer, but she told me that her breast cancer journey had been one of the biggest blessings in her life. I thought she was crazy! Jenkins said. But now I understand. It has been a huge blessing for me, I would do it all again. Having cancer changed Mrs. Jenkins perspective on life. She learned to be quiet and be still and just enjoy days when she felt well enough to go out and sit on her porch. I longed for the day I had enough energy just to sweep my porch, Mrs. Jenkins said. It was a long time after radiation before I was able to, but I remember that day, I think it was this time last year, I swept the entire garage and my porches, while crying as the lyrics to The Happiest Girl In The Whole USA played in my head. Thats my song! Breast cancer survivor calls her journey a blessing Continued from page 1 Mrs. Sherrie Jenkins is shown second from right with her family.

If both sides are evenly matched, the game becomes even always operates as a zero-sum game, in which one side wins and the other side loses. In our effort to learn how to become equipped peacemakers over the past several weeks, we have looked at the following strategies: accommodating, avoiding, collaborating and compromising. results in one winner and one loser. Competition is often not associated although it is probably the most used of all the strategies. We all like to win an argument, and getting the other side to concede to our rightness can feel like a resounding victory. is found in the book of Esther. Esther was the Jewish queen of a pagan Persian King. Esther was raised by her uncle Mordecai, a devout man with a strong faith in God. In the third chapter of Esther, the story is recorded of a man named Haman who was honored by the King. Because of this honor, (Vs. 2) The chapter spoke to Mordecai day after day but he refused to comply. Mordecai refused to bow down to Haman and acknowledge him as a god. His conviction was strong to only bow before the One True God. Standing up for our beliefs and convictions are an appropriate reason to engage in competition. However, we must be are based on the standard of God and not on our own preferences. Before spend time in prayer, asking God to help you clearly see the issue at hand. Likewise, getting spiritual counsel from those you trust in the faith can also be wise. Hamans and victory for the Jewish people because Mordecais motives were pure and Hamans were evil. God honored Mordecais stand. More often than not, even as Christians, we are more likely to make a stand based on our preference or wanting things our way than we are our religious convictions. It is here that we can create serious problems for ourselves, our families and our community. Within your marriage or family, winning this kind of battle may seem the goal, but remember that it leaves someone you love to be the loser. winning by demanding your own way results winning. Not a great recipe for a strong relationship. Make sure this strategy is only used when the is it a matter of truth or respect? Or is it a preference issue of clothing or hairstyles? Choose your battles. Stand when Gods standard is at stake. In every other circumstance, remember that two winners are better than one. Work it out together, because every heart matters.

Superintendent Rob Rankin is excited about the opportunity to continue the school districts strong focus on college and career readiness. The support that we have received from Duke Energy and CFEF has allowed not only to our students, but also to our community, states Mr. Rankin. The Superintendent is also grateful for the support of the FREE Board, for the purposes of these grants. This partnership has allowed the school district to access funds usually only accessible to 501(c)(3) agencies. The grant will match dollars provided by Duke Energy to expand a water quality Engineering project at Trenton High School. This project is being led by Mr. Don Barselou, Coordinator of the Construction and Engineering Academy. Mr. Barselou has been partnering with Mr. Bill Martin from Bell High Schools Academy of Agriscience and Natural Resources, as well as Mr. Don Bennick from North Florida Holstein Dairy. Students working on this project will be able to research, experiment, and learn how inorganic suspended solids, such as sand particles, can most effectively be removed from existing slurry of dairy animal waste while retaining the suspended organic materials for farming use. This project will produce a viable feed source for vermiculture or a slow release form of soil supplement. Students will design, engineer, and build a system capable of reaching these goals. These type of advanced STEM opportunities are vital for our students to be successful, explains grant writer Patricia Powers. Through the collaborative effort of its members, the CFEF successfully advocated for the creation of legislative matching funds in 2000 which has provided a dollar-fordollar incentive for local education foundations to raise private contributions for eligible projects. Ive seen the impact of the Matching County where I live, and I am happy to support this program statewide foundations and the students they serve, said Senator Bill Galvano, (R-26), Chair Appropriations Subcommittee on Education.

Crosby pointed out that reas signing duties rather than replacing Fischer will save the county $35,000 to $40,000 each year. Commissioner Sharon Langford said that in the future she would like decisions like this to come before the Board.

LiDAR data provide highly detailed ground elevation data which are used for a variety of planning and restoration efforts including setting mapping and modeling, water supply planning and natural systems management. Over the last several years, the District has partnered with the USGS, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Northwest Florida Water Management District, the Florida Department of Emergency Management, and Alachua County to gather data. After this winters work, approximately 90% of the Districts 7,640 square miles will have been surveyed by LiDAR. That is to say, at completion, teams will have collected data within District boundaries roughly the same size as New Jersey or three times the size of Delaware. The Districts partnership with the USGS continues to be mutually the public says Erich Marzolf, the Districts Director of the Water Resource Division. The USGS provide the staff and resources to manage the project and provide quality control for the data deliverables from the contractor.

I have worked hard to hold this position for many years and I believe that I have made a difference and want to see positive growth for our communities in Gilchrist County. I have lived here conservative out of necessity. I have been responsible for the management of two small businesses, family farms since 1997. This requires balancing budgets, managing people John Rance Thomas in the present and planning for the future.

To keep improving roads as they are the pipeline for commerce and to bring other infrastructure as needed to expand these businesses. As property values have fallen the need for services has not. Therefore adjustments of the millage has to be addressed. To maintain police, EMS with smaller ad valorem dollars. We need to encourage small business, as well as large to locate within the county as long as it doesnt deteriorate our way of life as a rural county with high quality schools. Name: Marion C.

I see some needs and opportunity for the county and I know I can make a difference. I have years of business the county. To make Gilchrist County attractive to business and pursue businesses to get them to locate here so we can increase our tax base such as more gas stations, agriculture equipment, etc. Graded roads are a big concern in the Marion C.
