Since the Parkland incident, there has been an increased presence of law enforcement at each school cam pus. An additional armed School cer on each campus. After an email threat in February, the schools were closed as a safety precaution. Sher iff Schultz stated, I felt that was the best call, and I would recommend it again. To ensure the campuses are safe and to screen for possible needs, the Sheriffs Department walked through each school surveying the premises for any additional safety measures. A peer review of the cam puses, which consisted of law en forcement from another district, was also performed to ensure nothing had been missed. Sheriff Schultz stated several times, Safety of our schools is a number one priority. We want to keep our students safe. The use of radios, cameras, procedures for lock ing doors, and security of classrooms has also been reviewed and updated. Student discipline involving threats has also been discussed as part of the safety procedures. Next steps in maintaining safety will begin the week of March 19 and will include the Sheriffs Depart ment participating in Active Murder Training using the school campuses for the training. This will coincide with Spring Break and will not affect students. In April, the Florida Asso ciation of District School Superinten dents will host a Mental Health Sum mit, and in May safety training will proceed with teachers and staff. Some other considerations to keep the schools safe will be imple menting the State Marshall Program where designated school employees would be armed. Included in Senate Bill 7026 is implementation of the State Marshall Program to aid in the prevention or abatement of active as sailant incidents on school premises. Excluded from participating are in dividuals who exclusively perform classroom duties as classroom teach ers. This limitation does not apply to Training Corps programs, a current service member or current or former of the State Marshall Program, school employees who volunteer would hold a valid license to carry a concealed weapon, complete 132 hours of com ciency training, pass a psychological evaluation, pass initial, subsequent, and random drug tests, and complete recognized diversity training. ALICE Training is being consid ered, which provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to ensure their survival and minimize the loss of life in the event of an aggressive intruder. ALICE Training empowers individuals to participate in their own survival and lead others to safety. Other considerations would in clude using newly allocated safe school funding and the two million dollars that Trenton High School may receive to further secure the schools with such items as fences, gates, and cameras. The Gilchrist County School District will receive allocations of $502,589 to spend on the safety of the schools and to provide mental health services. The allocations are in two parts with $345,819 to be spent on school safety and $156,770 to be spent on mental health services. According to Senate Bill 7026, the mental health assistance allocation is created to provide funding to assist school districts in establishing or ex panding school-based mental health care. The district will be required to submit a plan that is focused on delivering evidence-based mental health care treatment to children. Each district will also designate a School Safety Specialist who must the School Safety Specialist Train Schools. This position will be re sponsible for the supervision and oversight of all school safety and se curity personnel, policies, and proce dures in the school district. The school district will also have the opportunity to apply for a grant which will provide additional funds to improve security of school build assessment.

Submitted Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival greeted visitors with a beautiful Florida spring day, and with fun and good spirits fostered by celebrating St. Patricks Day. In downtown historic Trenton, thousands crowded north Main Street and the charming old railroad depot. Seventy-two craft, six antique and thirteen food vendors displayed wares and offered fare, and seventeen participating quilt groups sold quilts, quilting materials and supplies, and demonstrated quilting techniques. Inside the Florida Quilt Museum, a visitor could enjoy meeting renowned quilting author Mary C. Kerr and master doll maker Charlie Patricolo, peruse antique quilts offered from Marie Millers collection, see feed sack materials displayed by Cecilia Reed, and enjoy expert quilt turning lectures by collectors Kathy Cray and Teddy Pruitt. Said Crafter Coordinator Pat Watson, We had a wonderful turnout, and I think our vendors had a good day. We had many vendors return who have been with us several years now, but we added 25 new vendors so that gave us a mix of the familiar and of new offerings to enjoy and explore. We are always pleased to hear from vendors that tell us that they view us as their favorite festival. Festival founder and Quilt Coordinator Stephanie Metts commented We explored some new things this year, like Hawaiian quilting by Elaine Nemeth and the Japanese craft of Kimekomi by Bettie Rowe. We continue to have many quilt groups who support us every year from around our area. We are grateful for their participation. Stephanie noted, This year not only did the festival coincide with St. Patricks Day, it was held on National Quilt Day as well. Dan Sierra, Director of Merchandising for Best Drugs of Trenton, was delighted with their experience as featured sponsor this year. We met people visiting from as far away as Wisconsin and enjoyed chatting with long time customers. Our pharmacy experienced record breaking gift sales and the Life South Mobile Blood Collection unit in our parking lot exceeded their goal by more than 20%. All around it was a fabulous day for us said Dan. Festival visitor Stacy Clifton said, It was great! The creative craft ideas were exciting. My friend Teresa bought some beautiful fabric from the quilt shop, and my daughter Megann thought the selection of food vendors made-on-the-spot brick oven pizza, fresh off the grill barbecue, and deep fried seafood. Many others offered meals and baked goods, while the Suwannee Rose Cafe featured a back room Irish Pub experience. The thirteenth annual Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival will be held Saturday, March 16, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the picturesque town of Trenton, Florida, which is located in north central Florida just 20 miles west of Gainesville. For more information about the festival, visit us on Facebook, go to the Festival website www. TrentonQuiltFestival.com, or contact the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe, (352) 463-3842. Seems like this past week we have been so busy around the county. Spring break, the Suwannee River Fair, and a whole lot of softball and baseball games are keeping most of us pretty busy. So this week might be a good time to share a quick recipe for Creamy Tomato Soup. This recipe is fast to make and pairs wonderfully with grilled cheese sandwiches to round out a hearty meal. Creamy Tomato Soup 1 tablespoon olive oil or bacon drippings 2 green onions, chopped 1 small clove garlic, minced 1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes 1 10.5-ounce can chicken broth 1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon dry basil 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 3/4 cup heavy cream Add oil or drippings to bottom of a heavy pot over medium heat. When oil has warmed add the onions and garlic, then saute until tender. Next cut up the canned tomatoes into half inch size pieces and add to the pot along with chicken broth. Also add the juice from the tomato can. Add the basil, black pepper and half cup water. Continue to cook at a slow boil for 20 minutes. When soup is done add the heavy cream, stir and remove from heat. Taste for season ing and if salt is needed, add it. If you like smooth soup put tomatoes into a blender or food processor and pro cess until smooth before you make the soup. I think this soup would be extra good with a spoon full of crumbled fried bacon sprinkled over the top. Garden Club of Tri-Counties to meet March 27 The Garden Club of the Tri-Coun ties will meet Tuesday, on March 27th, at 7:00 PM at the Fanning Springs Community Church, Fan ning Springs.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters I seriously overslept this morning! Is it just me or is anyone else having a tough time adapting to daylight savings time? I do love the extra daylight hours in the evening, but I cant seem to get enough sleep to make up for the hour we lost a few weeks ago. So, I door in 20 minutes, but then spent the rest of the morning trying to get my brain in gear. Since I obviously didnt have time to get any wise counsel from my Bible this morning, I grabbed it and my devotional book on my way out the door. One of my absolute favorite things about Jesus is that He is always right on time-even when Im not. As I spent the morning being frustrated about being behind on my to-do list, I convinced myself that this day was doomed to be unproductive. By noon, I had barely crossed anything off my list. So I grabbed my Bible and book to at least get that done while I ate lunch. Through my devotion book, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, this is what Jesus had to say to me: A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me (Jesus), even if many things remain undone at the end of the day. Do not let your to-do list become an idol directing your life. I am not even kidding. To be honest, I didnt really mean, surely God wants us to be productive, right? Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus friends Mary and Martha. Their story is found in Luke 10:38-42. To make a short story even shorter, Jesus and his disciples were visiting and Martha was serving them. Her younger sister Mary sat listening to Him teach, which put Martha behind schedule. I couldnt help but wonder if she overslept too. Martha then complained to Jesus, to which He replied, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken from her. So maybe spending time with Him should be our priority over the todo list. Even when we get behind schedule! The awesome thing about how His timing works is that if I had not overslept, I would have read this about 6am this morning over a great cup of coffee, nodded in agreement, and closed the book. Then I would have gone about my day, probably being very productive, checking things off my list and perhaps even a few things from tomorrows list as well. I would have totally missed the truth of that to-do list being an idol directing my life. Being frustrated over the events of the morning and my own limitations revealed that I was doing exactly this very thing. I think Jesus timing in Marthas life taught her a very similar lesson. Lets try to accept each day, HOWEVER it of it. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.
