Its that time of year when neigh borhoods, especially the old estab lished neighborhoods, are full of aza lea, dogwood and wisteria blooms. Recently after working for several hours straight on my computer, I took a break and walked through an old neighborhood in Northeast Trenton. It was all abloom with beautiful hot pink azaleas that were planted many years ago. Im not sure who the planters were, but their efforts have sure paid off and makes Trenton like a lot of other small towns throughout the South, mighty pretty this time of year. --I like eggs and the following recipe is extra good on a Saturday morning or maybe as a weeknight meal. Just add a salad and some garlic bread or a biscuit and you have a meal. Dont let the word Frittata stop you from trying this recipe. A Frittata is noth ing more than a baked egg dish, kin da like an omelet, but you dont have to try and turn the thing. Country Style Frittata 6 large eggs 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon salt 4 slices thick-cut smoked bacon 2 small potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 cup shredded cheese, such as ched dar or a mild pepper jack Heat the oven. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 350 degrees. Whisk the eggs, heavy cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a small bowl. Set aside. Cut the bacon into strips about 1/2 inch wide. Add the bacon to a 10 inch cast iron frying pan, Cook the bacon over medium high heat, stirring oc casionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 min utes. Remove the bacon with a slot ted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate and pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat. Return the pan to medium-heat, add the potatoes and sprinkle with the pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender. Just before potatoes are done add the bell pepper and onions cook until they are tender. Add the bacon back to the pan and stir to evenly distribute. Spread the vegetables into an even layer. Sprin kle the cheese on top and let it just start to melt. Pour the egg mixture over the veg etables and cheese. Tilt the pan to make sure the eggs settle evenly over all the vegetables. Cook for a minute or two until you see the eggs at the edges of the pan beginning to set. Put the pan in the oven and bake until the eggs are set, 10-12 minutes. To check, cut a small slit in the center of the frittata. If raw eggs run into the cut, bake for another few minutes; if the eggs are set, pull the frittata from the oven. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then slice into wedges and serve. If you have more frittata than you are serving immediately, remove the extra slices from the hot pan because it will continue to cook and become dried out. Mrs. Hutto and Mrs. Jones Class with tractors. Soldiers and Seminoles in the Swamp The third presentation of the Sem i nole Indian Wars will concentrate on the Third Seminole War: 1855 to 1858. Guest speaker will be author and historian, Dr. Joe Knetsch, one of the leading authorities on Flori das Seminole Wars. The reluctance of the Native Americans to give up their lands in the Everglades forced the Seminoles and Miccosukees into a war they did not want and could not possibly win.

Club House Rentals Available for Weddings and events Gilchrist County Womans Club 819 SW CR 339, Trenton Call Connie at 463-3194 Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters As I have watched the weather channel this winter, I am more thankful than ever to live in Florida! There were many days when our little state was the only ground not literally covered with snow and ice. And yet, my feet stay cold from November till April. Between that and my thick southern accent, I would have to stock up on wool survive up North! So, Im wondering if you have enjoyed the few warm afternoons lately teasing us toward spring as much as I have. I think spring is the season that yells NEW to us like nothing else. After months of everything looking dead, life begins to reappear. Miraculously, God is up to a new thing as He renews the earth! And yet, too often we take it for granted. Perhaps we just get used to the routine and stop really seeing it. Listen to the words of Isaiah 43:16-19: This is what the LORD saysHe who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: Forget the former things: do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wastelandI provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. For generations, the children of Israel had repeated the testimony of God delivering them from slavery in Egypt by way of the Red Sea. Indeed, He parted those mighty waters and they walked through on dry ground. He also closed those waters over Pharaohs army and sent the Israelites on their way (Exodus14). At the time of Isaiahs writing, the Israelites have once again found themselves enslaved. Not by Egypt this time, but by Babylon. No Red Sea, just a lot of sand. And God wants them to trust Him to deliver, but they cant see how He can. According to verse 22: Yet you have not called upon me they are just used to the routine. This is where we are, this is how it is. If we arent careful, we can make an idol out of our routine. We hold on to it so tight that we cant see God doing a new thing all around us, or IN us! What new thing does God want to do in your life? Renew your marriage? Make a new friend or heal a broken relationship? Is it time to get serious about taking care of your health, get your a bad habit? If you are honest, you already have an idea of what He wants to do; you just havent been willing to change. We settle with this is where I am, this is how it is because change is such a scary word and an even scarier thought. But what if the change is worth the change? What if you had help? This is what the LORD says-He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid (Isaiah 44:2). This may be where you are, but it doesnt have to be where you stay. Let Him do a new thing so that you may proclaim His praise! Because your heart really does matter! New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

Bells Terek Liles, Reese Rankin, and Anthony Yoder defend the basket against Wildwood last Thursday. By Matthew Harrell For the second year in a row, Bell had its season cut short by Wild wood. Just like last year, the Bulldogs got off to a quick start and took an early lead, but could not hold on for the rest of the game. Despite not shooting the ball well an early lead and withstood a couple Wildwood runs to hold a 12-10 lead But Bells shooting got worse in the second quarter as the Bulldogs managed just four points and, even though they held Wildwood to just nine points in the period, found them Wildwood defeats Bell in regional semifinal selves in a three-point hole going into the half. Both teams were able to increase their offensive output in the third quarter, as Wildwood outscored Bell 21-16 in the frame. Late in the third period, Bell began to cut into a seemingly evergrowing Wildwood lead. The Bulldogs had taken the Wildcats lead down to eight points and had the ball with less than 10 seconds to go in the third quarter. The Bulldogs forced a turnover and Yoder got open for a shot at the top of the arc that would have cut the lead going in to the fouth quarter, but it missed wide and Bell trailed by eight to start the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs made some runs in the fourth quarter, but they never re ally threatened to take the lead and Wildwood defeated the Bulldogs, 5945, to advance to the state playoffs.

Barb came in to help Midge and Clair with the long arm machine. They want to learn how it works. We hope the machine will help us complete more quilts to sell. Janet has started to quilt on the quilt in the frame. We always need more people to hand quilt for us. Derek and the guys from Lancaster were out. Warm weather must be coming as they cut the grass this week. The Blue Sky vine needed the lattice replaced as the shoots were already 3 foot high. Thanks to the guys, the lawn looks great. On Saturday a donation of several boxes of fabric and notions were brought in. There should be fabric from France and quilt books from Holland in some of the boxes. Cant for thinking of us. The Craft of Kimekomi Comes to the 2018 Quilt Festival Submitted Quilters love fabric and design. They often have bits and pieces left over from quilting projects or just hold onto fabric whenever it does to do? Well, quilters can use these scraps to make Japanese Kimekomi (pronounced kee may ko me). The word means a method of tacking something into a groove. Kimekomi is a fun craft for decorating smooth foam balls with fabric, ribbons, lace and net. They make beautiful decorator accents for the home, can symbolize and commemorate special events or holidays, or are lovely gifts for friends and family. Kimekomi evolved from a specialized doll making technique developed in the Kyoto area in the early 1700s that used willow tree wood and fabric scraps. The wood was carved with grooves so that the doll clothes could be tucked into them. This local craft waned, but a similar Japanese doll making technique originated in the 1800s for making larger, more elaborate dolls using pressed wood. These dolls with round faces and bodies are still popular in Japan today. Over time, just making decorated balls became a major interest, and was also called Kimekomi. Kimekomi is easy and fun. The skills can be learned with just a little practice. You do not have to buy expensive tools and materials. The three-step process is: 1) use a template to mark a design onto the ball as a guide for cutting grooves; 2) cut out fabric to cover the ball to with decorative trim. Bettie Rowe, who works at the Fabric Arts Shop in Lake City, will be at the quilt festival demonstrating the steps for making Kimekomi, and will have some of her completed Kimekomi creations available for sale at the Florida Quilt Museum. She is excited about telling festival learned about it from a quilt shop newsletter and ordered a book they were selling about it. Before she moved back to our area, she taught at fabric and quilt shops in the Pensacola area. She developed her sewing skills following in the footsteps of her mother, who was a professional seamstress. She has made these decorated balls for the last seven or eight years and estimates she has made several hundred of them. She does not know more precisely how many shes made because she gives many of them away. Bettie enjoys introducing others to the craft. Typically, she holds two Kimekomi classes each month at Fabric Arts; one during the week and another on Sundays. For March, Bettie will have one class in Trenton at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe on Thursday, March 22, from 10am to 3pm. She supplies the materials and tools (except for scissors). Students make a Kimekomi ball, executing will leave this class with a completed decorated Easter egg. Generally, classes cost $25-35 depending on the materials. Bettie will teach a second class on Sunday, March 25 from 11am-4pm at the Fabric Arts Shop in Lake City. The twelfth annual Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival, Floridas only outdoor quilt show and sale, will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the picturesque town of Trenton, Florida.

Page Eight THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL GILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOSTERS Dear Gilchrist County Fair Exhibitor & Parents: In the past, Gilchrist County Fair Boosters have tried extremely hard to cover each and every child down at the Suwannee River Fair on the day of the sale. Due to the current economic conditions, we are asking for your help and support to ensure no child is left standing in the sale ring hearing RESALE. We are diligently soliciting any and all funds available through our local businesses and generous residents of Gilchrist County. Please see the following breakdown for this years show: Gilchrist Exhibitors Feeders: 18 Fat Steers: 12 Swine: 74 Wethers: 7 As you can see, there is a major obligation to Gilchrist County to provide Buyers on behalf of our children. Over the past several years, two or three individuals have gone around door to door, doing mail-outs and making phone calls on behalf of our children. Their dedication to this community and our children is much appreciated. It has always been the philosophy of the Boosters to try to support ANY and ALL children in need from Gilchrist County. This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching. For Gilchrist County Fair Boosters to be able to move forward and continue to aid each child in need, we feel the need to employ your help. This year, again, due to the current state of the economy, we are requiring exhibitors and/or family members to assist the Booster Club in raising money. For you (or your child) to have the Booster Club consider bidding on your animal, you must raise at least the minimum amount as follows: Fat Steer: $ 100.00 Feeder Steer: $ 75.00 Swine: $ 50.00 Wethers: $ 50.00 Please understand the Booster Club is in no way trying to exclude anyone from receiving assistance, but your help is needed to enable us to continue to purchase animals for Gilchrist County exhibitors. If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collec tion. Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.
