Educational Foundation "Wild Beast

Feast" draws big crowd in support

of higher education

By Carrie A. Mizell
Early estimates indicate that 1300
people filed into a line that snaked
out of the covered arena, through the
gates and down the lane. With baited
breath and growling stomachs the
masses waited patiently for the start
of the 14th annual Wild Beast Feast
on Friday evening.

I- mE





Despite a lull in early ticket sales
for the event, held at DeChamplain's
Heaven's Gate Farm, the air radiated
with excitement as the arena filled
with people from throughout North
Tables laden with gator tail, frog
legs, quail, mountain goat, water buf-
falo, mountain oysters, pork, corn
on the cob, swamp cabbage, authen-
tic gumbo, beef, barbecue goat and
homemade desserts were stormed by
anxious eaters.
"I think the Beast Feast was better
than ever this year!" Julie Thomas,
president of the Education Founda-
tion of Gilchrist County said. "It
is one night when the community
comes together to generate money
for the students."
Though a total of monies raised
at the Beast Feast had not been de-
termined at press time, the annual
event has traditionally served as the
primary fundraiser for the Educa-
tion Foundation of Gilchrist County.
A monetary total for the Beast Feast
should be determined by Friday.
Monies from the sale of entry and
door prize tickets will fund scholar-
ships for graduating seniors at Bell
High School and Trenton Middle-Se-
nior High School.

Lake City Community
College graduation to be
held May 4th
by Charles W. Hall,
LCCC President
SAs hard as it is to believe, Lake
City Community College's (LCCC)
graduation ceremonies will be held
next Friday, May 4, 2007 in the Con-
ference Center (Howard Gymna-
sium) on the Lake City Community
College campus.
While this is a time for celebrat-
ing the accomplishments of our stu-
dents, it is also an important time to
reflect on our students and the paths
pursued to reach their goals. There-
fore, I contacted Logan Cross, Lake
City Community College director of
research, to obtain statistics to share
in this article.
To begin with, it is important to
point out that last year the college
served over 7,500 students. These
statistics include students taking
credit and noncredit courses on either
a full or part-time basis. Though the
largest percentage of our students is
female there is a consistent increase
in the number of males entering the
college. Survey results indicate that
most students enter the college be-
cause of its convenient location, aca-
demic reputation, and its affordabil-

Fourth and tenth grade students in
Gilchrist County scored above the
state mean on the writing portion of
the Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT), while eighth grade
scores fell below the state average.
Last Wednesday, the state released
FCAT writing scores.
Fourth, eighth and tenth grade
students were tested on their ability
to write a narrative story and an ex-
pository essay. Mean scores, which
combine the results of bdth sections
of the test, indicated that Gilchrist
County fourth graders scored 310,
while eighth graders scored 276 and
tenth graders scored 302.
Statewide mean scores were 302
for fourth grade, 291 for eighth grade
and 296 for tenth grade.
After reviewing the FCAT scores,
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Jim Surrency said, "The scores will
not ever be where we want them to
be until every child is writing ator
above the, state average. The eighth
grade continues to be a challenge. We
know we still have work to do."
The fourth grade expository
prompt directed students to think
about something that is special to
them and explain why it is special,
while the narrative prompt directed
students to write a story about a field
trip to a special place. Fourth grade
students at Bell Elementary School
scored a 3.9 average on the writing
portion of the FCAT test, while Tren-
ton Elementary School fourth graders
scored a 4.0 average. The state aver-
age for fourth grade was a 3.9.
The eighth grade expository
prompt directed students to think
about the way they like to learn and
explain why they like to learn this
way, while the persuasive prompt di-

ity. While at Lake City Community
College most of our students pursue
associate in arts degrees that transfer
to other colleges and universities, a
sizeable percentage of students pur-
sue an associate in science degree
which focuses on technical training
for a specific occupation. An equally
important segment of our students
choose to pursue a certificate that
equips them to enter a particular
profession. Though the remainder of
our students may be undecided about
a career path, they do see the value
in obtaining a college education.

rected students to persuade the prin-
cipal that having candy and soda ma-
chines in school is a good idea for the
school. Eighth grade students at Bell
Middle School scored a 3.9 average
on the writing portion of the FCAT
test, while Trenton Middle School
eighth graders scored a 3.7 average.
The state average for eighth grade
was a 4.1.
The tenth grade expository
prompt directed students to explain
what good work habits people should
have, while the persuasive prompt
directed students to persuade a news-
paper editor that high school athletes
should be paid to play sports for their
schools. Tenth grade students at Tren-
ton High School scored a 3.9 average,
while Bell High School tenth graders
scored a 4.0 average. The state aver-
age for tenth grade was a 3.9.
The 2006-2007 school year marks
the third year for elementary school
teachers, and the second year middle
and high school teachers in Gilchrist
County have participated in Writers
in Control, according to Janet Lang-
ford, director of elementary educa-
tion. This writing program, which
builds gradually from one school year
to the next, teaches different writing
methods, while emphasizing the use
of structure in writing through details
and anecdotes.
During the summer months,
Langford and Siurrency explained
that the school district will look at
new personnel and changes in per-
sonnel, while making arrangements
for future workshops, all in prepara-
tion for 2007-2008 FCAT testing.
"We will analyze which teachers
need training and we will look at the
areas we can strengthen," Langford
Tendencies in how students are
doing will also be looked at, as well
as variables or gaps that may come
into play, Surrency explained.
Whereas other parts of the FCAT
test are multiple choice, the writing
portion is always up for interpreta-
tion, according to Langford. Also, the
writing portion of the test is not given
each year, only to fourth, eighth and
tenth grade students.
"It's difficult because you can't
look back at the student's fifth, sixth
and seventh grade scores on the writ-
ing section and pinpoint what needs
improvement," Langford said. "It's a
FCAT scores are used by the state

to grade schools, therefore an accept-
able level of performance is a score
of 3.5 or higher. In Gilchrist County,
83 percent of fourth graders met or
exceeded 3.5, while 75 percent of
eighth graders met or exceeded a 3.5
and 80 percent of tenth graders met
or exceeded the accepted 3.5.
With the writing portion of the
FCAT test scores in, school district
officials are now anxiously awaiting
scores of third grade re-takes, and all
remaining FCAT test scores.

Forty heifers shown at Florida Junior Angus Show and

Field Day

By Carrie A. Mizell
The smell of heifers permeated the
air Saturday as members of the Flor-
ida Junior Angus Association con-
verged at Hines Cattle Company to
participate in a Show and Field Day.
Forty heifers were shown through-
out the morning in 21 classes by
Florida Junior Angus members, ages
8 to 21. Anxious parents sat amid
the live oaks watching with pride as
their children led heifers before show
judge Scott Vaughn.
"This gives the kids a chance to
show their animals," Don Bailey,
president of the Florida Angus As-
sociation said. "Besides the show
aspect we want the kids to learn to
hold meetings, handle accounts, and
do fundraising activities."
A silent auction, featuring items
including grilling utensils, John
Deere tractors and ladies gift bas-
kets were up for bids. Proceeds from
the silent auction will benefit the 50
members of the Florida Junior Angus.
Association. The money will be used
for traveling expenses to the Lead-
ers Engaged in Angus Development
(LEAD) Conference to be held Aug.
2-5 in Athens, Georgia and the Na-
tional Junior Angus Conference to be
held July 1-7 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, ac-
cording to Robert Demaree, Florida
Junior Angus Association advisor.
"I like the show and field day be-
cause it keeps the kids' momentum
up and because it gives them the
chance to meet friends from all over
the state. It's not just about winning,"
Jean Jones said.
Jones' daughter, Erin, was one of

Santa Fe River clean-up
May 5th
On Saturday, May 5, 2007 we will
conduct a clean-up centered around
the 27 Bridge area. Karst Environ-
mental/Karst Productions and Santa
Fe Canoe Outpost are co-sponsoring
this clean-up with us.
This will be a dive cleanup, but we
have plenty of work for land working
folks, too.. We need snorkelers to pull
up stuff from the bottom: We need:
people in canoes or kayaks to accom-
pany divers and to cullect trash from"'
them. We need people working on
the banks over on the state park prop-
erty. Also we need people weighing,
sorting and setting critters loose as
the trash is brought in. So, there's
a place for everyone, regardless of
their abilities.
We'd sure appreciate it if you can
help. We will start around 9:00 a.m.
and finish up by 1:00 p.m. The water
is warming up quickly, so it should
make for a pleasant day on and in the

let me know if you plan to attend,

Florida Museum
volunteers join hunt for
flightless "Terror Bird"
fossil skeleton in
Florida Museum of Natural His-
tory scientists continue to find com-
plete fossil animal skeletons in a 2-
million-year-old sinkhole in western
Alachua County and are desperately
seeking volunteers to help excavate
the site.
Located northeast ofNewberry, this
site has produced the largest number
of fossil animal skeletons ever found
at a single Florida location. With the
help of volunteers, scientists hope to
find the first skeleton of the 7-foot-tall
flightless Terror Bird, Titanis walleri,
that once roamed ancient Florida.
Florida Museum crews led by pro-
fessional paleontologists are digging
at the site every day until the end of
May and more volunteers are needed
most days. Volunteers must be at least
18 years old, physically fit enough to
work outside for a minimum of three
hours and provide their own trans-
portation to the site. No experience is
necessary and all needed training will
be provided on the first day of work.
Funded by a grant from the Nation-
al Science Foundation, Florida Mu-
seum paleontologists .Jonathan Bloch
and Richard Hulbert and many vol-
unteers have collected more than 250
skeletons from this site in less than
two years. Important new discoveries
include the first remains of two saber-
toothed cats, an extinct elephant with
strange-spiraled tusks, massive sloths
the size of a bull' elephant and arma-

Hulbert, said it is possible crews
may find a Terror Bird skeleton be-
cause fossils of the animal were first
discovered only 12 miles from New-
berry in the Santa Fe River.
"Titanis was a major predator in
Florida 2 million years ago," Hulbert
said. "But it is known from only a
few dozen, mostly incomplete bones.
A complete skeleton would be a ma-
jor find."
Those interested in volunteer-
ing for this unique opportunity
should visit www.flmnh.ufl.edu/
vertpaleo/2007 dig.htm or email
rhulbertiflmnh.ufl.edu for more in-
Volunteers also are needed in the

mi cuiim's paleontology collection on
Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays to
clean, repair and sort fossils from the
Newberry site.

Clark will spend
31 months in
prison for his role
in accepting state
Allen Clark, a Trenton native and
former regional director of the Flor-
ida Department of Corrections, was
sentenced last week to two years and
seven months in federal prison for his
role in accepting $130,000 in kick-
backs from a snack food contractor.
Inside a Jacksonville courtroom,
prosecutors 'argued for a lenient
sentence for Clark, 41, who could
have potentially received 10 years
in prison. Clark's lawyer, Stephen
S. Dobson III of Tallahassee, asked
U.S. District Judge Virginia Hernan-
dez Covington for a sentence of 15 to
20 months for his client. Ultimately,
Covington opted for a lenient sen-
tence because Clark worked under-
cover to. help investigators build a
case against his friend and mentor,
former Departm~ent of Corrections
Secretary James Crosby.
Just one day prior to Clark's sen-
tencing, Covington sentenced Crosby
,to eight years in prison and three years
of probation for his part in what Cov-
ington called, "public corruption."
In July 2006, both Crosby and
Clark pleaded guilty to a single
charge of accepting up to $12,000 a
month in cash from American Insti-
tutional Services in eKchange for the
company getting a contract to sell
snacks and drinks to prison visitors
on weekends.
Crosby and Clark have been or-
dered to pay the state back $130,000
and Clark reportedly has 30 days to
report to prison.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

The Educational Foundation of
Gilchrist County Inc. held their 14th
annual "Wild Beast Feast" this past
Friday night at DeChamplain's Heav-
en's Gate Farm.
The evening was once again a fes-
tival of good food and fellowship as
the educational foundation was again
trying to raise funds to provide schol-
arships to 95 graduating seniors from
Trenton and Bell High Schools.
This year I had the opportunity to
eat a little of everything as I tried to
assist in what needed to be done.
Someone asked me what I liked the
best, well everything I ate was good,
but maybe a few things stood out in
my mind.
I am going to start with the gum-
bo that was prepared by Donald
Thibodaux and his assistants. This
was not a new dish, but it is always
tasty and delicious. He served his
Louisiana specialty on a bed of rice
covered in gumbo with a scoop of
potato salad on top with his own sea-
soning to make it complete.
The fried quail that is prepared by
Damon Leggett, Andy Arrants and
his son Drew were as delicious as
they always are. This team of chefs
keep the quail consistently great.
The seafood chowder that was made
by Scott Osteen and his sister Fran-
ces Osteen was very good. As I told
Scott and Franbes the only way they
could have improved it was to have
made it available when the tempera-
ture dipped down to 19.
Len. Tillman and his assistants
cooked the grilled pork and whole
hogs. The pork was very good. But
then again, it always is.
The beef was seasoned and cooked
by Kenneth Matthews of Chiefland.
Kenneth has his own specialty sea-
soning that always brings out the best
in what he cooks.
This year "Big Jim Jones" and his
assistants prepared the alligator tail,
fish and other fried delicacies. Mr.
Jones is always working to assist
the youth of Gilchrist County strive

the shares had fallen to $33 and the
company closed out the year With
earnings of $1.47 per share. If you
add back a special one-time charge
of 6 cents per share the number rises
to $1.53 per share but is still shy of
my estimate.
Although St. Jude did not perform
up to its potential last year, it appears
that change is in the air. The shares
recently closed at $44, bringing them
near their 52-week high, an indication
that Wall Street's confidence in the
company is returning.
To see why, you only have to look
at the recently released first quarter
earnings report. Net sales increased
13.4 percent to $887 million, as
compared to $784.4 million a year
ago. Earnings increased 13.9 percent
to 41 cents per share, as compared to
36 cents per share a year ago. That
strong first quarter performance
resulted in St. Jude raising its earnings
guidance for the year to between
$1.72 and $1.77 per share.
The increase in earnings was riven
in part by a 15 percent increase in
implantable defibrillator sales and
a 12 percent increase in pacemaker
sales over the same period a year ago.
The division that encompasses those
products accounted for 62 percent of
St. Jude's total sales.
In other words, St. Jude seems to
be back on track to perform in the
manner that made it a darling of Wall
Street two years ago. The shares are
up 20 percent so far this year and the
momentum should be able to continue

When Our Enemy Falls
(Kent Heaton)

One of the most beautiful songs in scripture is found
in 2 Samuel 1 when David laments over the death of
Saul and Jonathan. The Philistines had killed Saul's
three sons. Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malchishua. Saul
was severely wounded by archers and before the
Philistines could come to kill him he took a sword and
fell on it (1 Samuel 31':1-13). The King of Israel hated
David and sought to kill him on numerous occasions.
David recognized that Saul was the "Lord's anointed"
(2 Samuel 1:14-16) and did not return that hatred.
In death, Saul was remembered by David as the
"beauty of Israel" (2 Samuel 1:19). What we find in
this song is the lesson Jesus taught about how we are to
treat those for whom we have hard feelings and may
even be our enemies. In the sermon on the mount the
Lord declared: "But I say unto you, Love .your
enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them
that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use
you, and persecute you" (Matthew 5:44). Our enemies
deserve our love because we were enemies of God and'
through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ we have life
(Romans 5:10).
People may curse us, hate us and do evil against us
but we are not to return in kind those things that are
displeasing to God. Our words are not in anger but
filled with the blessing of God's mercy upon those who
become our enemies and seek our harm. "Therefore if
thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him
drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals offire on
his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil
with good" (Romans 12:20-21).
The wise man took this matter even further when he

wrote, "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do
not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; or the
Lord will see it and be displeased, and turn His anger
away from him" (Proverbs 24:17-18). It is easy to
rejoice when something happens to our enemy. His
pride may bring him low and in those moments we'
may feel joy because he is suffering. The Lord forbids,
this in His children. To have a glad heart when a
brother has been brought low brings sin upon us and
the displeasing measure of God upon our own lives.
"He that is glad at calamities shall not be
unpunished" (Proverbs 17:5).
The character of love prohibits feelings of
satisfaction at the falling of our enemies. Love. "does
not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the
truth" (1 Corinthians 13:6). The ISV reads: Love "is
never glad with sin, but always glad to side with truth,
whenever the truth should win." When someone is
overtaken in a burden, those who are spiritual will help
those who are fallen (Galatians 6:1-5). Those who are
not spiritual will think himself to be something, when
he is nothing. Failing to help bear the burden of a
brother who bears a heavy burden denies the law of
May we follow the example of Jesus Christ who
saved us from our sins not because we were
deserving but because He loved us with unmerited
favor. Our relationship with one another determines
our relationship with Him. His footsteps are tempered
by His love for those who hated him and despised Him
and in those footsteps we must place our life (1 Peter

es that prised that it was not the version that
feast a I learned in lower elementary school

ilchrist We sang, "Way down upon the Su-

. Let's where my heart is turning ever, there's

is I never ever sang Fosters real lyr-

wha my heart is turn ebber, Dere's
'ill not wha de old folks stay."

African Americans who performed'

A Legionnaire leaves his mark
We are trained in the military to always look ahead and train our replacement. In an
organization such as the military, this was not only a goal but a way of life. It was very
often without warning that someone above you got promoted, replaced or just moved on
to another assignment. With that occurrence you found yourself the next in line and now
responsible to pass on the missions and orders of the day. It was once explained to me
by a crusty old Master Sergeant that this business of looking ahead and training our
replacements was much like a cup of hot coffee. Then he added, "Did you notice that
when you take out the spoon that it doesn't leave a hole?"
After serving a successful career in the military I have always tried to apply this
technique to whatever job br organization in which I participated. I noticed a unique
difference in this civilian life. Volunteer organizations work quite differently' than the
military. Sure, the American Legion as well as most of the other service organizations
has a structure or chain of command. But it is not about giving out orders and putting
.those on report who didn't comply. It is about getting others to volunteer for a job, task
or position and seeing it through. No one I know understood this better than our 4th
District Vice Commander, Wayne Gravely.
It is my sad duty to report to all that our friend, fellow legionnaire, mentor, trainer
and former creator and editor of the Legion Airs News has passed away. Wayne left us
suddenly and- quite unexpectedly. He recently had hip replacement surgery and was
planning to have knee replacement surgery in a few short weeks. He attended the Post
91 monthly dinner and meeting this month, barely a week after surgery. He looked great
and I even remarked to him that he hadn't looked this good in the past five years. While
the details of his departure haven't been released we do know that he was at home, busy
on his computer helping prepare his legion units for their annual elections. If you still
have last week's article, it deserves another reading. Wayne was making sure we all
know the importance of volunteering and doing our part by helping to run our own
posts. Wayne will be missed by those in the legion as well as others whose lives he has
touched. As of this writing, final arrangements were not yet confirmed. We do expect a
memorial service this weekend, most probably on Saturday. While Wayne didn't go for a
lot of fanfare, I am sure there will be many in attendance. His family and friends deserve
our support. I know that I plan to be there.
So, let me not make the article this week a eulogy. I just want to remind everyone
about the importance of volunteering and seeing our tasks through to the end. Please
come out to your post this month and help them prepare for another year.

When I was a child my late grand-
father referred to African Americans
he respected as colored; back then
it ,was okay to say colored, today
it's not. I'm pretty sure in the 1850s
that was a respectful way to refer to
the African American race. Oh well,
times change and what was okay just
a generation ago is not politically
correct today. I wonder what terms
we will be using in another 25 or 30
years from now because you can bet
that the terms we use now will not be
acceptable then.
Too bad old Stephen Foster just
didn't use' the words, "Oh cracker,
how my heart grows weary." The
truth is I am a Florida cracker. and
I'm not insulted at all by the phrase.
My ancestors also worked hard on
plantations and farms owned by other
people before and after the war, they
were known as "sharecroppers." The
one line that refers to missing the
"old plantation" in the song does not
offend me. They were in fact share-
croppers and I can't rewrite history
no matter how hard I try. Florida was
made up of only a few plantations and
a lot of small farms during the days
of slavery. Florida did not become a
state until 1845 and the War between
the States or Civil War began just 16
short years later.
Although I'm not big on change,
maybe it's time the song was re-
worded, but not changed to a new
song. Let's use the wording which
is used now days instead of Fosters
try at old-time black dialect which
was written to be sold as an 1800s
minstrel show. The Suwannee River
is a beautiful river that is near and
dear to all our hearts here in north
Florida. I say we update the words,
but still honor our beautiful historic
river. Let's use the words we learned
in school as children. Do you re-
member how we sang it? "Way down
upon the Suwannee: River, Far far
away, There'swhere my heart is turn-
ing ever, There's where the old folks
stay, All up and down the whole cre-
ation, Sadly I roam, Still longing for
the old plantation and the old folks at
I noticed while researching our
state song that Florida is not the
only, state with a song which is not
politically correct. Maryland state
song 'Maryland, My Maryland' lyr-
ics still refer to "Union scum" and
thinly veiled references to Abraham
Lincoln being a tyrant.

Doodle' has lyrics that some think are

Remember Our Troops
Gilchrist Military
"Pray always," so the Bible says,
as a command for those who believe
that the Creator of the universe does
listen and does answer the heart cries
of those who come to Him. We live in
peace and freedom here in America
because of those who serve, and de-
pend'on us here at home to consider
them, especially when we pray; as
we consider the multitudinous jobs
which have to be rendered for our
protection, as well as times of expe-
rienced loneliness for those who are
far away from the familiar and dear
objects of their affection: mainly
family. So please make it a daily
habit of taking the time, in a quiet
place, to lift up those in service to
our country, especially of those who
names are listed below, for they are
ones who are the parents, children or
grandchildren of where we all live;
right here in Gilchrist County. (If you
do not see a name of someone you
know that you would like listed, who
is from our County or who is a son or
daughter of a resident, please contact
one of the associates of the Journal
and let them know.)

On Friday April 20, 2007 the letters
QandUwereblendedtogetherto make
the sound of/KW/. Students in Mrs.
Akins and Mrs. Adkins class blended
these two letters so that they could
be together in the English language.
SSome may be wondering WHY?
Well these students could tell you...

Mr. Q does not have a sound by him-
self; unless Miss U is by his side. Mr.
Q beside Miss U forever will give
Mr. Q a sound so that he can make
words like quilt, quarter, and queen.
Each child dressed up and played a
very important part in blending Q &
U together.
Following the wedding ceremo-

ny, Mr. Q and Miss U served cake,
punch, mints and nuts to the wedding
party and guests.
The wedding party- also had the
excitement in throwing bird seed at
these two letters as Mr. Q took Miss
U on a wagon ride around campus.
With this ceremony these students
will have a memory of a lifetime
and will always remember Q & U

the accomplishment of dozens of

From the first rehearsal on, students
have collaborated to explore how

important issues such as tradition,
tolerance, and faith that faced citizens
then and now.' We think they need a
standing ovation from the community
for all their efforts.

Several members of the Levy/
Gilchrist Retired Educators Associa-
tion visited the Butterfly Rainforest
at the University of Florida Museum
of Natural History in Gainensville
during its March/April meetings.
Members viewed various species
of butterflies and moths.

Springhouse Quilters
Members of Springhouse always
enjoy the workshops that the Program
Committee plans each month. The
March workshop was one example of
a fun-time for 15 ladies who partici-
pated in the workshop presented by
Jan Litzinger. They all made a con-
venient and useful thread holder to
store their many spools of thread.
The workshop for Aprilwas led
by Sandra Mount and she attempted
to help 1S ladies learn to tat. This is
a wonderful way to make beautiful
trim for an heirloom quilt. Sandra
was able to help the ladies learn the
basic stitches and gave them many
hints and ideas on how to make and
use the tatted pieces, She also showed
some of the beautiful tatted pieces
that she has made.

Most of the Springhouse work-
shops are usually quilting programs
so it is interesting to see what mem-
bers of the guild do when they are not
quilting. Even with these other inter-
ests, Springhouse members always
find time to make quilts to share with
.their family and friends.
The 2007 raffle quilt, a sampler
in shades of blue, is now being hand
quilted by members of Springhouse
Quilters. Tickets are available from
any member of Springhouse. The
quilt will be given away during the
October quilt show.
The next regular meeting of
Springhouse will be on May 8, 2007
beginning at 9:00 a.m.
For information on Springhouse
Quilters, please contact Jan Litzinger,
463-3971, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Alice Mae Haire makes so many quilts and this heart quilt is so
pretty. She always decorates her patterns and that makes them one of
a kind.

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
April 26, 2007 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Another Green Log
Cabin was put together and quilting
will be started. The pattern is Pine
Tree and this will be the second quilt
we have made using that pattern.
We would like to clear up the
date for the WWII Vets luncheon.
The day is Thursday and the date is
May 10, 2007. Sometimes we get
our dates mixed up and then before
the lunch someone calls and gets us
straightened out before it's too late.
We do have a,,lot of activities out
here and we do try to keep it right but

sometimes we mess up, but before
it's too late we get it right.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday
and they made up for missing last
week but everything got done that
was needed. Thanks Lancaster.
We have taken on the job of making
a king size quilt for a couple from
Dunnellon. It will be a Log Cabin
and we know it will take time.
Lunch was so good with chicken
and noodles, creamed corn, pot
salad, lots of deviled eggs, mustards
as well as collards and Lori's famous
chocolate yummy dessert.

Character Celebration
by Geneva Cornwell
The Fourth Annual "Character
Celebration," sponsored by the Char-
acter Council of Gilchrist County,
was held at the beautifully decorated
Trenton Community Center on Tues-
day, April 24, 2007.
With 20% more guests in atten-
dance than in 2006, the numbers con-
tinue to increase with each passing
The purpose of the special, event
is to celebrate moral character by
recognizing past personalities of the
month, award certificates to pres-
ent personalities, and to demonstrate
grateful appreciation to all the busi-
nesses, government entities, faith-
based organizations and individuals
who have contributed to the success
of Council projects and events during
the course of the previous year.
The entire membership of the
Character Council played a part in
the delightful evening, as every-
one who attended was surrounded
by an array of purple and white, the
Council's colors. There were eye
appealing silk flower sprays which
stretched themselves on each table
and along the windowsills. Even the
plates, napkins, flatware, drinking
cups and frosting flowers on the de-
licious cake served as dessert, were
purple. Everything was perfect for a
memorable time.
Those of the Council who serve
as committed officers and Commit-
tee Chairs are as follows: President,
Mary Dunn; Vice-President, Mitchell
Gentry; Secretary, Geneva Cornwell;
Treasurer, Major Stroupe; Advisory,
Pete Randolph; Community Out-
reach, Jessie Lee; Historian, Diane
Rondolet; Merit, Mary Ann Lee;
Telephone, Jim Scruggs; Ways and
Means, Carl Cornwell; and Web Site,
Stacey Brown.
Others who hold positions as con-
sultants with the Advisory Commit-
tee Chair are J. M. Everett, Tommy
Langford, Jim Surrency and David
The Character Council is looking
forward to future projects and events
as it begins the fifth year since its
founding and with one purpose, and
that is, to enhance all sectors of our
community by promoting good char-
acter and proving that a county of
character is a county that cares about
its people.

Gilchrist County AARP Chapter
President Nancy Padgett is planning
an active month for the members
with several opportunities for volun-
The meetings are never dull as an
of the current members will tell you.
Thursday, May 10, 2007 will be
the AARP National Day of Service
and this year we hope to add up any
and all the hours members contribute
to try to establish a base line to which
we hope to add as the years go by.
Our main objective will be to land-
scape the grounds of the Bell Library.
Members of our Chapter were very
much involved in getting the library
in the first place and it will be a great
public service to the town if we help
to keep up an attractive exterior as
well as a well-stocked interior. We
plan to meet at the library at 10:00
a.m., be prepared to pull weeds. If
you have some small hardy outdoor
shrubs or plants perhaps you can do-
nate one or two. Nothing too big or
needing a lot of care unless you are
prepared to do the tending. Any other
way you serve will count, shopping,
or taking someone for an appoint-
ment, reading to a neighbor, you
know the idea.
The regular monthly meeting is
planned for May 15, 2007 and will be
a pre-memorial day picnic with sand-
wiches and finger foods and casual
dress. Entertainment will be provided
by the Don Martin Trio. Come pre-
pared to sing and have a relaxed and
enjoyable morning. Usual starting
time at 10:30 a.m. Bring a friend.

Bits And Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters and Crafters
of North Gilchrist
Well, I ve decided to give up try-
ing to figure out the weather...haven't
you? I believe mother nature is go-
ing through that delicate time of her
life where she's cool as a cucumber
one minute and having hot flashes the
And it's not just here, it's all over
the country. Blizzards, floods, winds,
drought...do you think God's trying
to tell us something? Maybe we need
to start paying attention and take
heed. But, I must say the rain we had
last Sunday and again on Wednesday
was truly a blessing. Like Brother

West said, "We don't want to sound
ungrateful or greedy but a bit more
wouldn't hurt at all." Praise God.
On Wednesday morning when 18
Joyful Hearts and one guest met at
the fire station there wasn't even a
hint of the shower of blessings that
would fall later in the day.
Paulene Martin was able to come
and we are so grateful that her hubby,
George, sees to it that she's with us
as often as she's able. Since Alberta
Swanner can't always make it and
Evelyn Wood is on, what we hope
is just a little hiatus, the Amen Cor-
ner is woefully lacking. Ann Taylor,

knitting and talking with Bonnie

Swedish weaving and Marvine Deer
who is starting to embroider some
pillowcases she just bought.

is what : do


her Swedish weaving and teaching
Jane Boyd how to do it as well. Jane
brought in a darling baby quilt she
had made for a great-granddaughter
who will be arriving soon. Jane asked
me for the icing recipe I had put in the
paper sometime ago and for the life
of me I could not remember the sugar
part. Others said they wanted it again
too so here it goes, even though it's
too late for Jane's cake. 1-16 ounce
tub cool whip, 1 large block cream
cheese, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, add
flavoring if desire.
I got the recipe from Mrs. Rogers
in the library at Bell Elementary...
Elaine Nemeth, Barbara Strom,
Olga Knott, Ann Mangone, Pat Luka
and Cathy Strom all worked on the
club quilt from time to time and
are really making headway. Olga
brought in five or six quilting tem-
plates to show us and bless her heart
she is willing to share them with any-
one who would like to use them. And
isn't that what it's all about, sharing
with and caring for one another?
Diana Lynn, who has been work-
ing on costumes for the upcoming
play "Mid-Summer Night's Dream"
at Bell High School, brought in the
finished vest her son Zach will be
wearing. She also brought in Zach's
evening attire coat complete with
tails on which she's still working.
Myrle Gilkey came to her aid and
gave her a hand with it...more caring
and sharing. And of course Alice is
always there teaching everyone the
fine art of Swedish weaving.
Myrle was also still working on
her lovely yellow afghan while Lera
Townsend, our only April birthday,
continued to knit items for her fam-
ily. She also shortened the sleeves on
the tunic that goes with the dress I'm
wearing to my son Michael's wed-
ding...more caring.
It was so good to have Heidi
Kamp with us. She's been under the
weather a good while and we have
really missed her. She brought it a
daily prayer rope to show us. It was
a braided yar rope that had seven
prayers, one for each day of the week.
The prayers, were Monday-wash
day, Tuesday-ironing day, Wednes-
day-mending day, Thursday-cleaning
day, Friday-shopping day, Saturday-
cooking day and Sunday-The Lords
Day. The prayers, for example were,
Saturday, cooking day: Lord, help me
brew a big kettle of brotherly love and
serve it with the clean sweet bread of
human kindness.
Each prayer is thoughtful and
heartfelt. This would make a great
gift for anyone, especially for a new
bride. If you would like, a copy of
all of them call me. And we want to
thank Heidi, again, for sharing this
project with us.
Barbara Myrick and I just kept
busy buzzing around like bees in
a field of flowers. And sometimes
that's all a body needs to do...chit
chat, laugh and just enjoy one anoth-
ers company...amen.
Well, before we knew it the clock
on the wall said time to lay aside
work and lay out eats, as my grand-
mother called 'em. Not too many
folks brought their lunch. Mostly
everyone just enjoyed singing happy
birthday to Lera and eating her cake
and ice cream.
Shortly after, everyone packed up,
said their goodbyes and left for home.
We reminded everyone that our next
meeting was a "make it and take it"
on Wednesday, April 25th. Our next
regular meeting will be Wednesday,
May 2nd...our tea.
Because it is our tea we are not
meeting until 10:00 a.m., which will
give the hostesses a chance to set up
and decorate their tables. Dress up...
wear a hat...whatever. If you choose.
to do nothing but come, that's okay
I cannot let the opportunity go by
without saying something about the
horrific killings that took place two
weeks ago. So many unfulfilled lives
and dreams wiped out in a matter of a
few minutes. Our hearts and prayers
go out to the families and friends of
both those killed and wounded as
well as the families and friends of the
terribly troubled young man respon-
sible for this tragedy.
And is he responsible entirely?
Maybe we all are. Maybe life is too
easy for some, too hard for others.
Maybe we don't have the guidelines
built into the system to help those so
desperately troubled. Maybe it's too
easy to own a gun. Maybe we don't
care enough or do enough. Maybe we
jut put our heads in the sand and hope
it will all go away.
We will never have the answers as
to why him, why them, why there.
We can never find the answers to

like to express their appreciation to

There were many fundraising
events held throughout the year and
the community was generous in their

to everyone that participated. Ron

these kinds of questions. We can
know that we need to follow God's
commandment to love one another
as He loves us. We can know that we
need to count our blessings, make
every day, every hour, every minute
count...for it may be our last...or the
last we spend with a loved one, friend
or fellow human being.
I believe that one of reasons we
grieve so for those who are called to
leave this life is the missed opportu-
nities to tell loved ones. and friends
how much we love them, things in
our hearts that are sometimes hard to
express. There are feelings that we
need to let go of, we need to forgive
old wounds and rejoice with one an-
other, not bicker, hold grudges and be
devoured by envy and greed.
We are blessed because we still
have the opportunity to learn from
this tragic event. Take every oppor-
tunity to let even strangers know
you love them and care about them.
Lift up, not only loved ones, but the
homeless, the helpless, the troubled,
the lonely, the -sick, the twisted in

Building projects are not for the faint-at-heart. The
culmination of hopes, dreams and ambitions into a finished

largest financial and emotional investments you will ever make.

According to Dan Cavanah, manager of the Town of Bell, an application and preliminary site plan' on
the project were submitted to the Town of Bell on April 10, 2007.
The proposal indicates that 41 homes will be constructed on the 20+ acre site in a proposed subdivision
named Peggy Station. The preliminary site plan has been sent to the North Central Florida Regional
Planning Council for review. Pending the Planning Council's recommendation, the Bell Town Council is
tentatively scheduled to review the application and preliminary site plan on June 7, 2007.

Easter. egg hunt
Peter Cottontail arrived for our
first annual Easter egg hunt in Bell
sponsored by the Relative Care.Giver
Foundation, Inc. It was quite an egg
hunting adventure with prize winning
wonders inside each egg. We gave
out over 45 burden bunnies and five
baskets, candy, egg holders, gloves,
and played games. Grand prize went
to Mrs. Jordan of TanningQBed, Bell,
who guessed the jelly bean count
contest. The library drawing was won
by Penny Kramer of Old Town. Both
of these ladies are relatives raising
children. Wesley Kalandyle of Bell
won the Easter basket drawing. We
were able to provide for 30 families
with some families having two or
more children. Everyone left with a
bunny or some other prize. Attending
families gave thanks for the event and
asked that we do it again next year.
We humbly appreciate the
businesses and their generosity in
supporting Relative Care Giver
Foundation, Inc., to help us reach the
needs of the community in scheduling
events. We thank Mr. Rankins and
Michelle Carter for the donation of
over 350 Easter eggs for the event.
We also want to thank those students'
who volunteered and who gained
community service by helping hide
the eggs. Our events assist students to
earn communityaservice-for college'
and through Teen Court. We support
our youth with love. We also want
to thank our team, Tom Williams,
Mary Prescott, Mrs. Rush, Melissa
Williams and Patricia DelloBuono
for their efforts in putting this event
together. Romans 5:8 tells us that
God demonstrates his own love for
us in this, that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us. I Peter
4:8 says that above all, love each
other deeply, because love covers a
multitude of sins. I John 3:15 says,
let us not love with words,...but with
actions in truth.
We were here to help if you are a
relative raising children in Gilchrist
County through temporary custody
or long-term. If you would like to be

Florida Springs
Protection Publication
wins National Planning
The Department of Community Af-
fairs and two of its planning partners
last week received one of the high-
est honors given by the American
Planning Association. A publication
produced by DCA, the Department
of Environmental Protection and the
growth management advocacy or-
ganization, 1000 Friends of Florida,
was. named the 2007 recipient of the
National Planning Excellence Award
for Best Practice, an honor that was
presented at the organization's an-
nual conference in Philadelphia.
The manual guides Florida plan-

ners as they work to protect Florida's
700-plus freshwater springs, which
are an invaluable source of clean wa-
ter and environmental diversity. The
manual, Protecting Florida's Springs:
Land Use Planning Strategies, and
Best Management Practices, is de-
signed to assist regional and local
planners as they formulate approach-
es to protect springs from the pres-
sures of growth and development.
"Florida's springs are a window
into the health of the natural resourc-
es that make our state such a special
place to live and work," said DCA
Secretary Tom Pelham. "We must
do everything we can to protect our
springs, and we are honored that one
of our publications can have such a
meaningful impact on these efforts."
DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole
added, "Florida's freshwater springs
provide a looking glass into the
quality and quantity of our under-
ground water resources. By working
with growing communities we can
protect the water quality of Flori-
da's more than 700 springs while
meeting the needs of the state's
residents, visitors and wildlife."
The Department of Community
Affairs played the lead role in de-
veloping the manual, which was
originally prepared in 2002 based
on recommendations from the Flor-
ida Springs Task Force. The manual
has grown in popularity as planners
throughout the state recognized its
usefulness and effectiveness, with
more than 8,000 copies distributed
to date. Publication of the manual
was funded by a grant from DEP.
The numerous .springs that dot
Florida's landscape in 39 different
counties are indicators of the quality
of the state's ground water. As Flori-
da's population grows, its springs and
ground water face increasing pressure
from development: Growth brings an

inevitable increase in water use and
extensive land use changes, which
can alter water quality and quantity.
Charles Pattison, executive direc-
tor of 1000 Friends of Florida, said,
"We think this represents the best
kind of collaborative process, with
state agencies and a technical advi-
sory committee working together
to produce a user-friendly guide
that presents the best thinking on
springs and springshed protection."
The manual is designed to help
local governments, developers,
landowners and citizens learn about
innovative and sensible planning
strategies and tools they can use to
protect Florida's springs. It focuses
on how the local comprehensive plan
can be used as an effective vehicle to
help guide growth and development
of everything from urban areas to
farms to golf courses. The document
identifies specific best management
practices to help lessen the impacts
of development on the state's springs.
DCA helps Florida's communi-
ties meet the challenges of growth,
reduce the effects of disasters and
invest in the community. For more

Department of Community Affairs
and the springs protection program,

trict is taking the opportunity to get
out and talk to the realtors, bankers,
developers in each area according
to Scarborough, "The people who
are going to help this part of Florida
grow." He told the crowd of business
people that the water management
district will work with those who will
be doing the developments and sub-
divisions, which will take care of the
future growth.
According to Scarborough growth,
if it is done in the right way, will be
good for our economy here in this area
but the water and the environment
must be considered. He explained
that if the Water Management district
was contacted at the very beginning
of any plans for development that the
whole process could be more stream-
lined and should move through their
permitting process smoother.

Dinges explained the Minimum

This will establish and protect water
resources from significant harm re-
sulting from permitted water with-
drawals. He also spoke of the Suwan-

Best Management Practices by local
farms. The Partnership's mission is
to determine the sources of nutrient
loads to the Suwannee and Santa Fe
river basins and to work with local
land users to minimize future nutrient
loads. The CARES program was also

reviewed. CARES stands for County

LCCC Graduation
Friday, May 4th
(Continued from Page One)
Upon graduating from the col-
lege, many of our graduates are suc-
cessful in their subsequent academic
and/or career pursuits. More specifi-
cally, Lake City Community College
graduates who transfer to colleges or
universities tend to be very success-
ful. Their grade point average at the
receiving institutions compares very
favorably to the freshman and sopho-
mores who have already been attend-
ing that university. The job placement
percentage for occupational gradu-
ates typically exceeds 84 percent.
Also of interest to many students is
that the starting salary for occupa-
tional program graduates is approxi-
mately $30,000 with a certificate and
approximately $40,000 for graduates
receiving an associate in science or an
associate in applied science degree.
The foregoing underscores the im-
portance of the upcoming graduation
ceremony. At that time, we will be
honoring the students who success-
fully completed their degree program
since last year's ceremony. More
specifically, 488 students graduated
during the fall term and 331 students
applied for graduation this spring.
Thus, the number of students who
will graduate from the college this
year will probably exceed 800. This
is Lake City Community College's
largest graduating class to date.
Needless to say, Lake City Commu-
nity College is very proud of the su-
perior teaching and learning environ-
ment provided by its faculty and staff.
The success of our current and past
students provides evidence that Lake
City Community College is fulfilling
its mission of providing a high-qual-
ity education at an affordable price.
With all of this in mind, I encour-
age you to come to the graduation
ceremonies and congratulate our
If you plan on attending, it is impor-
tant that you be aware of changes in

the schedule of events. This year the
nurses' pinning and Lake City Com-
munity College commencement cer-
emonies will occur on the same day.
The nurses' pinning ceremony will
begin at 2 p.m. followed by the com'-
mencement ceremony at 5 p.m. Both
events will be held in the Conference
Center (Howard Gymnasium).
Between the two events, cookies
and lemonade will be served in the
Pine Square Pavilion. Consolidating
these two events into one afternoon
allows more nursing students to attend
the general commencement exercises
and conserves college resources. The
sequence of events; should provide
plenty of time for taking pictures
and socializing with fellow students,
friends, and families.
I hope you willjoin me in congratu-
lating these graduates and their fami-
lies for beginning a course of study and
seeing it through to completion. They
are to be commended for deciding to
better themselves, pursuing a higher
standard of living, and contributing
to the betterment of the community.
Congratulations Lake City Com-
munity College graduates and fami-
lies, we send you our best wishes.
Hall is the president of Lake City
Community College. He can be
reached via e-mail at hallc(,lake-
citycd.edu or by calling (386) 754-

are sexist. They have changed one
line in the song. Mississippi has 'Go
Mississippi' as their state song and
it is fairly noncontroversial, but has
faced several challenges because of
its attachment to a former segrega-
tionist governor. Virginia's 'Carry Me
Back to Old Virginia' has language in
it which includes words like "massa
and darkey." In 1997 the lawmakers
gave it "emeritus" status and they are
looking for a new song.
To end this column I recalled from
my memory a quote my grandmother
often said, "Ah buddy, the times are a
changing" and it could be our ol' state
song will be a changing too.

The first time that I ate the following
casserole I was amazed at how good
cheese and pineapple could be. Last
weekend we enjoyed a pineapple and
cheese casserole made by Ms. Mil-
dred Culpepper of Trenton and it was
so good that I looked up my recipe
which was made by Kari Wasson. If
you like pineapple and cheese you
will love this one.

1 20-ounce can pineapple chunks
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup Ritz@ cracker crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain
pineapple, reserve juice. Combine
sugar, flour and juice. Add cheese
and pineapple chunks, mix: Put mix-
ture into a greased casserole dish.
Mix cracker crumbs and butter and
sprinkle over the pineapple mixture
and bake 30 minutes.
