Call Melissa Myers 352-278-2336 Seems like the cooler weather will never arrive this year. It sure does not seem like we are several weeks into Fall already. I have pulled out the fake pumpkins and fall colored silk leaves at out house in a effort to catch the Autumn spirit. But, so far the heat is keeping me indoors and dampen ing my Fall aspirations of cleaning out my much overgrown weed in Saturday, our grandson Whitt piled the weeds high on the grand kids red wagon and hauled them off for me. Now at least you can get to the front door without having beggar weeds attached to your clothing. I tell you it is becoming a jungle out there in our yard. On a better note we enjoyed some mix made in middle Georgia by Back to the Basics 101 company. This family run farm grows their own soft wheat and mills it themselves on a 100 year old family farm. Then they such as banana bread or pumpkin ingredients in their bread mixes. If you are ever traveling through middle Georgia, keep your eye out for the Back to Basic 101 mixes be cause they are well worth the price. Maybe some day soon we will have a little cooler weather so we can all catch the Fall spirit. In the mean time, I guess we can buy a few pump kins, scatter them around and fool ourselves into thinking Fall is really here at last. --This simple recipe is easy to make and is extra good in hot or cool weather. Super Easy Breakfast Casserole 8 ounces of sausage, cooked and drained 1 8-count package of original crescent rolls 4 eggs Salt and pepper to taste 2 tablespoons half and half or whole milk 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese Grease a 9x9 glass baking dish or pan.

Schools Present Improvement Plans to School Board By Janet Bradley At the September 25 School Board Meeting, all four schools presented their School Improvement Plans for the 2018-2019 school year. Each school completed their School Im provement Plan (SIP) with a team consisting of the Principal, Assistant Principal, selected teachers and sup port staff. The School Improvement Plan is presented to the School Board and submitted to the Florida Depart ment of Education. The purpose of SIP is for every school to review data, set goals, cre ate an action plan, and monitor prog ress of students. Schools conduct a needs analysis by reviewing data components in the areas of English Language Arts, math, science, so cial studies, graduation rate, middle school acceleration, and college and career acceleration. This data is used to determine where their students performed the lowest and what areas were most improved. Based on the needs analysis, each school devel schools highest-priority needs by identifying the most important areas of focus for the current year. Bell Elementary needs analysis indicated math instruction for their lowest performing students and math learning gains would be a target for their school. They will monitor this through math discourse professional development, tracking students, and using the i Ready program. They will also be focusing on writing and English Language Arts. Science had the most improvement at their school, but they still have plans for a science sessions with a science consultant for Trenton Elementary needs analy sis revealed a need to monitor their lowest performing students in Eng lish Language Arts and math. They also see a need for more students in state assessment. Science achieve ment showed the most improvement ment. They plan to reach their goals for 2018-2019 by providing more professional development for teach ers and monitoring student progress throughout the year. Bell High School needs analysis denoted the English Language Arts component of the lowest perform ing students was an area of concern, but this area did show an overall in crease from the previous year. Eng lish Language Arts will continue to be a focus area for the entire school. The social studies and science areas proved to be an area of strength for the school as the students performed extremely high compared to the rest of the state. They plan to provide more professional development for teachers, provide low performing students with more support, and align curriculum resource materials in high school English Language Arts so it Standards Assessment. Trenton High School needs assess ment suggests seventh grade English Language Arts and seventh grade civ ics were the lowest performing com ponents for 2017-2018.

Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2018 Please attend the church of your choice on Sunday! By Angie Land Heart Matters Have you noticed how one person can say something that makes you laugh while a different person can say the same thing and we take offense? Whats the deal? I think the primary difference is how we feel about that person. This week in our study of Esther, we land in Chapter 3 and meet the villain of this story, a man named Haman. For reasons that Scripture discover about Haman is that King Ahasuerus honors him higher than that of all the other nobles, and commanded them to kneel down and pay him honor. Sounds like a great day for Haman right? Until Esthers Uncle Mordecai refuses to obey this command. Verse 5 tells us when Haman saw that Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor, he was enraged. Scholars agree that the reason Mordecai refused to pay honor to Haman was because the Jews worshipped God alone and saw bowing down to a human being as elevating them to the position of a god. In addition, Hamans ancestors were ancient enemies of the Jews. (See Deuteronomy 25:17-19 and Exodus 17:16) Obviously, Haman also was aware of this history because when he discovered that Mordecai was a Jew, he looked for a way to destroy all Mordecais people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes. Haman of being offended to a whole new tax bracket! Mordecai refuses to bow the knee and Haman responds by plotting to take the life of every Jew. Lest we think Haman is just throwing a temper tantrum that will soon pass, he offers the King ten thousand talents of silver to be paid to the men who destroy the Jews. One commentary equates this amount to over 19 million dollars in todays currency. If you read this chapter closely, you will notice that Haman never fully discloses his motives to the King, nor does he give all the information about who it is that will be destroyed. The King plays right into Hamans plan, even going so far as to give him his signet ring, in essence a blank check to do whatever he needs to accomplish his goal, with the Kings blessing. While hopefully you havent been deeply offended to the point you start planning to destroy an entire race of people, there is still a very relevant lesson for us in this passage. If we spend our time making check marks by everyones name who offends us instead of forgiving them, when an opportunity arises to do them harm, we will be convinced they deserve what it coming to them. I dont know about you, but I like the deal Jesus offers instead: If I forgive them, He forgives me. Because every heart matters. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

A big Shout Out and Thanks to the people of Gilchrist County I want to take the time to recognize a few people in Gilchrist County that came to my rescue on Friday afternoon, September 28 at the Bell Homecoming Parade. I had a small freak accident when my chair back I was sitting in broke, and the entire back of my chair fell off, which threw me backwards. When my head hit I was knocked unconscientious for a short time. Thank you to my son who was there with me, the RN who came to my side, immediately took my vitals and assessed me, the woman sitting next to me, who called 911. Thanks also to the on and off duty police my son get me up off the ground, and the EMS ambulance team that took care of me as I took a trip to the hospital for evaluation. When I came to I was a bit confused and I felt like a train ran me over. Praise the Lord I did not have any broken bones or head trauma and was able to be released that night, sent home with lots of ice packs. I am sorry for anyone I may have missed, my family and I appreciate each one who was there helping me. Bless you all. It is nice to know we live in a county that cares. One that goes above and beyond to help someone that they may not even know.

Rankin as Superintendent And Secretary of the Board Publish October 4 thru Nov. 13, 2018b By: Danette Hyde Since both schools had homecoming parades last week we made sure that the residents that wanted to participate in the parades had a chance to do just that. The residents at Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center wanted to show their support of our local schools. On Thursday, September 27th we assisted our residents aboard the Wheels to the World bus and participated in the Trenton Homecoming Parade. Actually being in the parade was a thrill for everyone. It was an exciting opportunity due to the fact that the Trenton Tiger Marching Band warmed up for the parade right next to our bus as we waited. We reminisced about school days as the time passed waiting for the parade to start and watched as the colorful started The Rotary Interact Club was just ahead of the Wheels to the World throughout the entire parade, their youth spirit was present throughout as they passed out candy to children who lined the streets. Then Friday we took the residents to Bell so they would have a chance to watch the Bell Homecoming Parade. It was an exciting couple of days for everyone that was involved. Participating in these events was not only a lot of fun but it brought back many memories to the residents that attended. It is always nice when you you of times gone by and how they made you feel. While waiting for the parades to begin our residents took time to reminisce about their school days and parades they had attended in the past. Diana told us of the times she attended the University of Floridas Homecoming parades and how much she enjoyed them. We discussed how things have changed over the years with the parade and with the Gator Growl. Someone else shared with us how much their family members enjoyed it when people would throw candy out at the parade. And we found out a little known fact, one of our residents had played the drums in the marching band when he was in High School. I enjoy learning more about our residents, it helps me know and understand them a little better. No matter your age, it is fun to look back and remember things from your past and share them with others.

They would each bring a quilt to share, and since space was limited, they would lay them all out on a bed, stacked one on top of the other. Each woman would take a turn and her quilt would be held up for everyone to see and exclaim over while she told the story of the quilt. Feature quilts at the Dud ley show will include traditional, ap plique and vintage quilts. Our quilters would love for you to share our favorite old family heritage hear its story. Please feel free to bring your quilts, also including the Levy County Quilt Museum, quilt groups and quilts for sale.
