IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Bob Stone Jeff Beach skillfully fashions about two dozen custom saddles a year in the shop behind his home in rural Gilchrist County, near Tren ton. Strikingly beautiful examples of functional artistry, he decorates most of them with graceful, handtooled or carved designs. Al though Jeff will make any type of saddle, most he builds are used in the highly competitive rodeo event of tie-down calf roping. His im pressive list of clients includes Trevor Brazile (Decatur, Texas), winner of twenty-three PRCA World Championships, and consid ered by many as the greatest pro fessional rodeo cowboy ever; Cody Ohl (Hico, Texas), six time PRCA (Hockley, Texas), seven times PRCA World Champion calf roper; and Caleb Smidt (Bellville, Texas), 2015 PRCA World Champion calf roper. At this time, he has a wait ing list of more than three years. I lose a lot of orders because they dont want to wait, stated Jeff. I can understand that, but the saddles have got to be what I want them to be, or else Im not going to send them. Almost all of my customers want their saddles tooled, he add ed, And that takes a lot of time. Jeff is the third generation to live on the Beach family farm, which his grandfather, John Franklin Beach, Sr. (1892-1956), purchased in the 1930s. Jeff said his family originally came from South Caroli na, but did not know exactly where. According to the1830 U.S. Census, several members of the Beach fam ily were living in present-day Col leton County, on the South Caro lina coast. John Franklin Beach served in World War I; his draft registration card, completed when he was twenty-four, listed his oc cupation as steam shovel crane operator and his employer the W. G. Williams Company of Macon, Georgia. Jeff said his father, Forrest Beach (1923-2009), remembered clearing the land, picking up stacks of big pine trees and burning them. For rest Beach farmed for several years. Later, he was head of the Road Guard agricultural inspection stations for the North Florida region under Com missioner Doyle Conner. He retired from that position, never returning to farming. After he graduated from Trenton High School, Jeff attended the Uni versity of Florida, graduating with a degree in Agriculture Business. Af ter college, he returned to the family farm, growing row crops including corn, soybeans and wheat. He started calf roping as a young manand at was younger, he competed in rodeos throughout the Southeast. I never was that good, Jeff declared in his typically modest manner. I mean I paid my waybut I really liked do ing it. I still do. Jeff quit farming for a while during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when cult, and started training horses for a error. He enhanced his horse train ing skills considerably by attending a Ray Hunt clinic in natural horse manship held at Ham Browns ranch in Kissimmee. Jeff has always enjoyed making things with his hands. In 1982, he saw a how to book on saddle mak ing advertised in Western Horseman magazine, ordered it, and has been making saddles ever since. Jeff en joyed building saddles and strived to improve his work. Two renowned Florida artisans helped him achieve a high level of skill in tooling leather: Ocala saddle maker Blake Kral and Okeechobee master leather carver Bob Dellis. Blake helped me a lot, taught me how to tool. He helped me with style and design. In the late 1980s, I went to his shop and bugged him to death, and he was glad to help me. A little later, he met Bob Dellis, who enjoyed a national reputation. I visited him in Okeechobee a lot. He produced a series of video tapes that proved invaluable to advancing Jeffs skills. That changed the way I laid out my designs. His methods really helped me a lot, declared Jeff. Jeff married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Fletcher, in 1974. They had two children, Devon and Garrett. While Devon preferred girls team sports, Gar rett focused on calf and team rop ing and steer wrestling. Nurtur ing that interest, Jeff and Marilyn hauled Garrett and his horses to rodeos on the Florida High School Rodeo Association circuit on week ends. Garrett was a talented and focused competitor. He competed in four state and three national high national high school champion ship in calf roping. Garret attend ed Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, Oklahoma on a rodeo scholarship, where he com peted on the college rodeo team in National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association events and earned his Associate of Science degree in agri culture. When he returned home, he attended the University of Florida, earning a bachelors degree in Ag ricultural Business Management.

They also went on a night tour of the Washington Monument, World War II, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorials. After this, the students leaders. On the next day, they focused on our nations current leadership in the students toured the Capitol Building to meet with Representative Neal Dunn and Representative Ted Yoho, who challenged the members to never place limits on what they can do or achieve in life. In addition to this meeting, they were also privileged to attend a tour of the White House in Trenton FFA goes to Washington D.C. which many are denied access. They felt the experience as remarkable and surreal to walk through the rooms our Presidents lived in while serving our great nation. especially while visiting the museums in D.C.

While Garrett was attending col lege and competing in rodeos, Jeff made a saddle for one of his college rodeo teammates. While preparing to rope a calf at a big event, a man came out of the stands and asked him who made the handsome saddle, and the student told him Jeff Beach was the maker. The man was Tommy Guy, of Abilene, Texas, a roper who had qual back in the late 1980s. One day Jeff received a surprise call from Tommy Guy. Ive been looking everywhere called Tommy remarking. He said he had been hunting Jeff everywhere his phone number from someone. Tommy ordered a saddle and, From Tommy is friends with all the world The orders for custom calf roping saddles began to pour in. Jeff is modest when speaking about his saddles and his impressive list of clients. Why do so many champions prefer his saddles? Jeffs beautiful, masterfully rendered handtooled designs are certainly a factor.

They are stout and you are not trees made by Lewis Tree Company of Hereford, Texas and Sonny Felkins (Quality Manufacturing) of Monti cello, Utah. Interestingly, Jeff does not sell very many saddles to ropers living in Florida and the Southeast. He buys all his leather from Herman Oaks of St. Louis, Missouri. Jeff will make any type of saddle.

Jeffs daughter, Devon, is highly skilled at tooling leather. She plans to take a leave of absence from her job as a high school guidance coun selor to work with her father, tooling his custom saddles.

Commission approves up to $200K for Jail project plans While you are in grandmas kitch actually teaching you about love, life and family. Anonymous So last week I was in the SunStop in Trenton and just happened to catch a great life lesson in progress. A nice older gentleman and a young girl grade were in the produce area of the store. I would guess that she was his granddaughter. They were weighing fruits and veg etables and he was painstakingly ex plaining how the scales worked. Then he explained the per pound price and you would be paying for vegetables by multiplying the weight times the per pound price. I couldnt help but think how lucky she was to have a grandfather who would take the time to help her learn about scales. Sometimes it is those life lessons that mean so much to children and grandchildren. On the other hand, it was nice for the grand father to feel that he was needed. It just amazes me sometimes how God worked all that out long before we got here. Im pretty sure the love and attention that a grandparent gives their grandchildren is more important today than ever before in our history. I still remember that my grand mother Shannie would pull up a stool and let me play in her leftover biscuit dough. She would take the time to instruct me on how to roll out dump lings. All the while, telling me a story about her mother and how she made dumplings, and what life was like growing up one of seven children in a log cabin in New Town, Florida. National Grandparents Day is Sun day September 9, 2018, so grandpar ents, gather your grandchildren and make some memories. Speaking of children, since this is their last week of Summer before school starts back on August 13, I thought maybe a fun childrens recipe might be timely. When our children were young they made their own individual pizzas by rolling out canned biscuit dough for the crust. It was simple, quick and fun. Im sure with supervision children could make this entire recipe. Pizza Cups 1 pound ground beef 6 ounce can tomato paste 1 tablespoon minced onion 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1/2 teaspoon salt 10 ounce can biscuits 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese Brown the ground beef and drain off excess fat. Stir in tomato paste, onion and seasonings. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Place tins, pressing to cover bottoms and up sides. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture into each biscuit lined top. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 min utes or until crust is golden brown. go into place immediately. Mr. Cros by reported to the Commission that the dumping sites have cameras and this will assist the County in cleaning up these dumpster sites. Ray Raucher told the Commission that most people dont want to walk to the back of the dumpster contain ers to throw in their trash. He agreed that the Commission needs to get this done. Rosemary McDaniel told the Com mission that she lives in the Wac casassa area and many people still throw old tires and other trash on the roadsides and in places that are over grown. John Yencho told the Commission that he has seen construction crews pull up to the county dumping sites and throw construction debris onto the ground. Mr. Crosby explained that Gilchrist County has camera pictures of construction people dumping C & D debris on the County property. --Attorney Lindsey Lander ad dressed the Commission to present a settlement for a client, Cameron Wayne Haynes, that had a Civil lien placed on him from a 2008 incident when he was in the Gilchrist County Jail. Attorney Lander explained that the Civil penalty was for $9,100 and his client has moved on and would now like to settle and can pay Gilchrist County $5,000 today if the Commission is willing to accept this proposal. Clerk of Court Todd Newton told the Commission that the Civil lien was $9,100 back in 2008 but these that time. Commissioner Thomas made a motion to approve the $5,000 settle ment and remove the civil lien from the individuals history. Commis sioner Gray gave a second to the mo tion before the board approved of the settlement by a unanimous vote.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters When someone is important to us, we will go to great lengths to be with them, see them or just hear their voice. A young man recently told me his girlfriend, who is not a morning person, came out at 7:00 a.m. to cheer him on in a 5K he was running. Going out of her way to be there was a loud and clear statement to him that he is valuable to her! A Samaritan Woman shared a similar experience as Jesus contradicted the cultural norm between the the well: So He (Jesus) came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there, and Jesus, tired as He was from His journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, Will you give me a drink? His disciples had gone into the town to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to Him, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink? For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. John 4:5-9 As the writer of this gospel, John was inspired by the Holy Spirit to tell us of the prejudice between the Jews and Samaritans. Know that while the Scriptures do not condone prejudice in this passage, was present. Even still, Jesus went out of His way to pursue her. The word prejudice means to pre-judge. This happens when we arrive at an opinion of a person, or a group of people, without any input on their part. Instead, the origins of prejudice can usually be traced to the past. In II Kings 17:21-24, the Old Testament records the Assyrian conquer and resettlement of the nation of Israel by bringing in people from many other countries. This mixture of people came to be known as Samaritans and was despised by the Jews, so much so that the typical travel routes involved going the long way around the region of Samaria, avoiding the area at all costs. Prejudice often evokes such strong emotions that it can be very it is unlikely that any of us avoid stopping by the store for fear of bumping into a Samaritan, this passage can help us look at prejudice a little more objectively. Here are a few truths we can observe: Prejudice is a waste of time and energy. Prejudice may not cause us to travel completely around an entire town, but it will never work for the building up of the kingdom of God. Sadly, we have all witnessed evidence of how it works against it. Prejudice never travels alone; pride and fear are constant companions. Consider why prejudice demands segregation and isolation. If we get to know someone personally, those prejudged ideas become harder to justify. Walking with Christ will expose any prejudice in our thinking. In the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) Jesus pushed the issue of a Samaritan being the neighbor to the Jew. It is Gods desire that none should perish, but that all will have eternal life. Prejudice gets in the way by preventing the spread of the gospel to everyone. As we seek to walk with Christ, lets make sure if we go out of our way, it is to pursue, not avoid, because every heart matters... New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.
