As one of the largest spring-fed swimming areas in the state, Hart Springs has long been a favorite destination. This summer, Hart Springs unveiled a new splash park to rave reviews. Gilchrist County utilized FRDAP grant funding to construct the splash park at a cost of $53,736. Construction began in July 2017 and the project was completed in April. Spring water is pumped into into the spring run. One local mother, Ashley Cook, said, This is the best thing the county has spent money on in a long time. She said her son, Holton, loves to play in the splash park while his older sister, Braley, and her friends swim in the springs. Hart Springs is a favorite spot for many to enjoy. Mitchell Gentry and his staff have worked tirelessly to make the park a wonderland for visitors. We are humbled by the enormous continued support of our local county citizens and from many people who visit our park from other counties, Gentry stated. Recently, we have noted that because of the overabundance of swimmers it would be in the best interest of all to monitor the capacity of the swimming area. Gentry explained that when management feels the park has reached full capacity of swimmers, the park will close for the day to any additional entries. The park will reopen during the day based on the We do not anticipate this to be a daily occurrence, but it might be an issue on the weekends, Gentry stated. We would appreciate your willingness to work with us as we attempt to not only operate a park thats famous for its beauty, but also operate a park where safety is a concern.

Fuller William (Bill) Martin John Yencho By Lauren Roberts Lake City native Helen Roberts, the daughter of Norman and Corine Witt, remembers riding over to visit her aunts farmhouse in Trenton as a young little girl. This fun-loving city girl absolutely hated the trip as the countryside was empty in her opinion, and she wouldve much rather spent her day at the skating rink with her sisters than visiting the farm. Yet she Roberts bringing her back to the area to build a home and family years later. The two met while both attending school at Lake City Community College and started dating shortly afterwards for two years. Helen graduated high school from Columbia and William from Trenton. While in high school, he enjoyed being in the FFA where he showed steers in the fair and participated in public speaking events under his advisor Herbert Brown. During their courtship, Helen worked as a secretary in the Animal Science Department at the University At Home with William and Helen Roberts of Florida and William served six months in the Army Reserve. After graduating with his AA degree, he went back to work on his parents, Carl and Amma Roberts, 160 acre farm which has remained in the family since his grandfather, Frank Roberts, received it in 1862 under Theodore Roosevelts Homestead Act. One operation of the farm was a feed grinding business known as GC Roberts & Son Feed Grinding in which a large grinder mounted to the back of a truck would produce cattle and swine feed from corn for other farmers in the area that was stored in burlap bags. William and his father Carl started this as a way to produce their own feed for their cattle. The business existed during the 1960s and was busiest during the winter months. Aside from cattle, the farm grew many crops including corn, soybeans, watermelon, and tobacco. When William was not planting or checking on cattle, he enjoyed exploring the beautiful springs in the area where he frequently cave dived at Hart and Otter springs or was out scalloping in the Gulf. On April 9,1966, William and Helen got married and later went on to have two sons, Wesley and Jason. While raising their family, Helen stayed at home to see her sons through school and William bought his fathers farm and continued to grow crops and raise beef cattle. Like every good cattle rancher, William had plenty of dogs to help round up cows but everyone around town knew his black-mouth cur dog Melvin particularly for his reputation of scaring away the UPS man and making house visitors jump on top of their vehicles! Helen remembers him as her favorite dog because he didnt let anyone in their yard that would harm them and kept the pesky vacuum salesmen from knocking on her front door! After Helen saw both her sons through high school, she decided to work as a volunteer coordinator at Ayers Nursing Home for nine years until she retired. Now she enjoys maintaining her beautiful yard, baking her famous sour cream pound cakes, hello dollies, and pecan pies for her loved ones, and spending time with her grandchildren, Lauren, Austin, and Macy. William also continues to own some beef cattle but is retired from farming and has turned most of his farmland over into timber production. He still enjoys working cows with his grandchildren and taking his dogs for a ride to feed the cows and check on the fences. When asked what the secret is to making their 52 year marriage last, Helen shared, its being considerate of one anothers feelings and making sure your marriage is centered around God. William went on to say that it is just learning how to put up with each others differences and having a good attitude even when that means mowing the lawn when she tells me to! Helen might not have imaged that she would grow up to live in the Trenton countryside as a little girl, but she and William have created a their love for each other, family, friends, and their small town they are blessed to call home. Helen and William Roberts have been married for 52 years. Helen and William Roberts are pictured with their two sons, Wesley and Jason. See additional pictures on page 4

We recently relocated here permanently after retirement. There have been several tragedies in the last few months. We were touched deeply as we stood with numerous others for the procession honoring enormous outpouring of residents funeral. We would like to commend Sheriff Schultz and his department for their professionalism, whether a loss of their own, or of a lifetime resident. Sheriff Schultz showed the integrity, compassion, and grace of a great leader, with his presence, and in the words of encouragement he shared. We are blessed to be a part of this community. Greg and Aletha Harden Our vegetable garden has about of the eggplant and okra. I do believe that our okra crop is the best we have ever grown. For years we struggled trying to grow okra because of the root knot in our soil. We had one fail ure after another. A few years ago we tried Longhorn okra seed and we had a successful crop. This year we put drip on our Longhorn okra and it has produced a bumper crop. Longhorn is a very old seed once grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monti cello. It produces well here and keeps bearing most of the summer, even in the heat. The okra pods have to be cut about 3 times a week. Recently I cooked a large pot of okra and to matoes. Adding celery, bell pepper, onion and garlic just to spice it up a bit. We ate it over rice and man it was so good. The tomatoes were from the garden also. Okra is very easy to put up in the freezer. I put it up just like Momma did of course. Start by washing the okra and spreading it out to dry. Af ter it has dried out cut off the top end and the tip end of each pod then slice up in 1/2 inch crosswise slices and spread out on a cookie sheet in layer thick. Bake okra at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from hot pan and put on cool pan and chill in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Remove chilled okra and place in a freezer bag and return to the freezer. In the fall and winter when mak ing beef and vegetable soup I add a handful or two of frozen okra to the soup. Gumbo is another wintertime dish that uses frozen okra. This is about the easiest okra rec ipe ever. Simple Okra Saute 1 pound okra or 4 1/2 cups, stems removed and sliced crosswise 1 tablespoon olive oil or bacon grease 1 cup onion, chopped 1 garlic clove, minced Salt and pepper to taste In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add all the in gredients including the salt and pep per and cook until okra is tender and no longer slimy. Letter to the Editor President Aaron Haynes shows the Rotary Coin with words to inspire!

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 Please attend the church of your choice on Sunday! By Angie Land Heart Matters Three years ago. I had a conversation recently with someone who shared with me the last time she could actually remember feeling content was three years ago. Our conversation took another direction, but later I couldnt help but wonder what was going on in her life during that time to cause it to stand out as a time of contentment. I have continued to roll this around in my mind and so I want to ask you: When is the last time you remember feeling content, a contentment that was tangible enough to make you say or at least think, I am really okay with life right now. My next question is this: what were the circumstances that surrounded your state of contentment? Was everything going well for that season? Bills all paid, kids all healthy, and no major catastrophes? Maybe you were even on vacation, sitting at the beach with a whole week ahead of you and thinking, Ah, now this is life. If I could just stay here, I would be content! If Im honest, this has been my experience, and Im willing to bet yours as well. However, the Bible offers a fresh perspective on the reality of true contentment. In Philippians 4:11-12, the Apostle Paul becomes our mentor in this lesson: for I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. If you investigate the context we realize is that Pauls contentment was not dependent on circumstances, at least not external ones. He was sitting in prison as he penned these words! As we scratch our heads over this detail, lets of contentment for a little insight. Websters dictionary says that content is an adjective meaning to appease the desires of; to limit oneself in requirements, desires and our assumption that contentment is only possible if everything is going well. It also stands in contrast to a passive stance of just deciding that nothing is worth opposing. Even a quick glimpse into Pauls life will tell us that was not his mentality! a Christian. In our determination to live within the will of God, we are called to limit ourselves, especially our desires and actions, to those things that are pleasing to God. (Desiring something is not a sign that it is okay with God. We need to consult His Word to see what He has to say!) Proverbs 3:5-6 explains: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Obedience to God will result in contentment, no matter the circumstances. Paul had this he mentions learning how to be content. Biblical contentment is not natural. In fact, left unchecked, our sin nature reeks of discontentment. Understand that limiting ourselves to Gods plan for our lives will not always be easy, but it will be worth it. And we can learn to be content with that, because our hearts really do matter. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.
