A letter to the citizens of Gilchrist County from John Yencho, Republican Candidate for District 2 County Commissioner As a Gilchrist County Resident, I believe it is a common goal to provide a path for the next generation to lead a more prosperous life than the one before. Generation after generation has been given opportunities to succeed in fields that didnt exist previously. That opportunity rings true now more than ever. That simple desire to offer our children more opportunities than we had exist in small towns and communities all across our great Nation. Communities just like Gilchrist County I have been blessed with the opportunity to raise my family in Gilchrist County. Furthermore, I have taught the children of Gilchrist County for the last 24 years as a teacher and a coach at Trenton and Bell high schools. I remember a time when people stayed right here where they lived to enjoy all that Gilchrist County has to offer. Friday night would mean dinner at the pizza shop in downtown, maybe some ice cream after, before going to one of the football games in Trenton or Bell. Or maybe we would go to the skating rink for a few hours. All of these events centered on family. Thats what makes Gilchrist County so great. Its the people. Many of my students have come to me and expressed that they want to stay and raise their families here but they just dont see the opportunity to do so. The next generation feels that they dont have the same opportunities we had to lead a life of quality in the community that we all love. We have to show them that those opportunities do exist today. Our community has the promise of safety. A sheriffs department dedicated to protecting us and a school system that is consistently ranked among the top year after year. A community that pulls together, pushing aside all differences to support each other in a time of tragedy. I love this county. I will work arm in arm with the other commissioners to make the hard decisions it takes to work for you and keep our county not only the most beautiful but also the best place to live. Help me show the next generation that Gilchrist County is the best place in Florida to raise a family. I respectfully ask for your vote in the primary election on August 28.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters Have you noticed how every talk show host and the cover of every magazine promises THE ANSWER to every single problem we face? They pledge to solve our health problems, relationship problems, money problems, etc., with the results of the latest study, survey, or the newest information available. Now, I am not opposed to new information or studies. In fact, I think we are wise to stay in pursuit of knowledge and be lifelong learners. My angst comes from thinking that all the right answers have yet to be discovered; perhaps we just keep hoping someone will come up with an easier route to deal with our problems. Our pastor recently challenged us to read continuously through the book of Proverbs, reading the month, chapter two on the second, and so on. Since there are thirty-one chapters, there is an assigned chapter for any months Proverbs might seem to be just a collection of quaint, old-fashioned sayings. However, upon study and consideration, deep spiritual insights appear that focus on the character and works of God and prove to be anything but outdated. A proverb is a short, concise sentence that expresses a moral truth not just intended to present knowledge (having the facts), but to impart wisdom (applying those facts to life). Further, the Hebrew word for proverb means to rule or govern. Hence, the truths presented in the Proverbs provide profound advice for us to live by. Written by King Solomon, called the wisest man who ever lived, the book begins with a purpose statement: The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insights; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young. (Proverbs 1:1-4) A few things I noticed about this purpose statement: the priority is about attaining wisdom AND discipline. One without the other can prove dangerous. Wisdom without discipline will give way to temptation (Solomons accumulation of wives and concubines that led him away from the Lord is an obvious example) but discipline without wisdom can simply result in punishment or even abuse. Second, these verses dont argue basic spiritual and moral beliefs. They assume the reader desires to do what is right and just and fair, not split hairs or look for loopholes fact, agreeing with Gods Word is a prerequisite to comprehending Solomons proverbs. Finally, Solomon seeks to experience and words of wisdom. A young person who energetically seeks wisdom will have success, while those who mock and hate knowledge, calamity will overtake (Proverbs 1:26-27). This holds true whether we are young in years or at heart, so no matter what our age, I challenge you to take a deeper look at the wisdom and insight of Solomons proverbs, because every heart matters!

I wish the Commissioners would take it upon themselves to take a stand and protect the rivers and the people in this county by opposing this min ing development. The president of Our Santa Fe River had six Alachua county students individually address the Commission and ask the board to oppose the mining development in order to save the natural springs and the beautiful nature tourism that is being enjoyed by so many people that visit North Central Florida. Alachua County Commissioner, Ken Cornell asked the Commission to oppose the phosphate mining development in north central Florida. The Commis sioner explained that our sister coun ty is welcome to access and use in formation that has been accumulated and studies conducted by the Alachua County Environmental Resource de partment if they need information to base their decision on the proposed phosphate mining permits in Union and Bradford counties.
