Quincey and

Mikell win

trustee seats
By Amanda Huber
Nearly 800 members and guests
braved the slight drizzle to attend
Central Florida Electric Coopera-
tive's Annual Meeting this past Sat-
urday, Oct. 6, 2007. Despite a little
rain, the meeting was held as planned
in the Cooperative's Operation Cen-
ter just outside of Chiefland. Coop-
erative members,. the real honored
guests at this meeting, were both
entertained and informed, and if they
were lucky, went home with one of
the many door prizes given away at
the meeting's end.
Entertainment for the event was
provided by the Gospel singing
group, The Pickerings.
At 10 a.m., the business meeting
was called to order by CFEC Trustee
and current President Tony Weeks.
Rev. Greg Douglas, pastor of Pine
Grove Baptist Church, gave the in-
vocation. In the President's report,
Weeks said that CFEC is in sound
financial condition, and while they
are working hard to meet the needs
of the growing service area, they are
also trying to keep costs in line so
that members continue to have af-
fordable, as well as reliable, power.
SWeeks recognized several employ-
ees who retired this year after many
years of service to cooperative mem-
bers. Those retiring were as follows:
Freddie Hiers, Bill Ditter, James As-
bell and Herman Gentry.
The guest speaker for this year's

Randy Mikell, Alan Mikell and
district trustees.

annual meeting was Tim Woodbury,
Executive Vice President and Gener-
al Manager of Seminole Electric Co-
operative, the generation and trans-,
mission cooperative that supplies
CFEC's power. Woodbury said that
the culture of sensationalism in the
media about the environment and,
specifically, global warming is not
a good backdrop for creating sound
energy policy. Hysteria created by
Hollywood and others only serves to
confuse the issues, not solve them.
"It is more important than ever that
consumers stay armed with the facts
- that they understand the ramifica-
tions of what their policy makers and
elected officials in Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C. are doing with
regard to energy policy," Woodbury

Woodbury went on to say that pro-
viding reliable and affordable elec-
tricity requires a balance between
cost, reliability and the environment.
However, some of the policy being
espoused and created by Governor
Crist will tip that balance and the cost
to consumers will be "very high."
"We believe that the Governor's
plan to go cold turkey on clean coal
is a flawed policy," Woodbury said.

atile price swings, is already far more

ment of Seminole electric coopera-
tive to continue working in the best
interest of the members of CFEC.

4-H members from throughout
the county converged on the court-
house lawn Sunday afternoon to set
up scarecrows clad as gators, ghosts'
and game hunters to commemorate

Bell Council

wants ATV


By John M. Ayers
Bell Town Council members agreed
to take action following .Thursday
night's meeting to try to slow the traf-
fic of 4-wheelers on public roads in
and around the Bell community.
The board discussed in detail that
golf carts driving at a slow speed
with the necessary safety equipment
is different than 4-wheelers racing in
and around the community.
"I have been receiving a lot of com-
plaints involving 4-wheelers and golf
carts using the sidewalks and public
roads in the City of Bell," said Dan
Cavanah, city manager.
Bell attorney David M. Lang told
the council that 4-wheelers are not
authorized to operate on public roads
in the State of Florida. Golf carts on
the other hand are allowed if the cart
is equipped with the necessary safety
equipment. The attorney explained
that golf cart operators must be at
least 14 years old. The Town of Bell
has an ordinance in place to allow
the use of golf carts on public streets
when the guidelines are met.
The council determined that this is
an enforcement issue and the Town of
Bell would have the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office try to police the mu-
nicipality and cut down on 4-wheeler
use before a serious accident occurs.
The council pointed out that Sher-
iff's deputies and Florida Highway
Patrol troopers have been coming
through town more often issuing cita-
tions for speeding in the construction
zone north of Bell near the Gilchrist
and Suwannee county line.
Mrs. Iris Roberts, president of the
Council, pointed out that semitrucks
are also traveling too fast for safety
conditions through the Town of Bell.
Councilman Al Powers told the
board that he would like to see the
town resurface some streets in the
municipality. Powers put his request
in the form of a motion to take action
in the November meeting. Council-
man Ray Sanders agreed and gave a
second to the moti,.'ni be.e the the bid
,.oted 5-0 in faor.

Nearly 400 flu shots have been given in Gilchrist County

By Carrie Mizell
Amanda Seay believes the painful
pinch of a needle is worth avoiding
the flu.
The 21-year-old Trenton native has
never had a flu shot before, but plans
to get the vaccine this year after suf-
fering along with four other family
members with the flu last winter.
"We were pretty much quarantined
to the house for about seven days,"
Seay said. "My mom is a nurse and
she always told me go get a flu shot,
but I just ignored her. This year it will
be worth the needles."
Seay is not the only Gilchrist Coun-
ty resident considering a' flu shot.
According to Jana Land, nursing di-
rector at the Gilchrist County Health
Department, 200 flu shots have been
given over the last two weeks. On
Sqtdafnn Sen t "29 the health deonart-

ment hosted a flu shot clinic where
132 flu shots were given, Land ex-
"October through January are our
heavy months, but we can give the
shots throughout the flu season,"
Land said. "I personally get a flu shot
because I believe in immunizations. I
also encourage my family and friends
to get one."
The health department orders 800
doses of flu vaccine each year. The
vaccines arrive in partial shipments-
beginning in late September and run
throughout the winter. Cost of a flu
shot is $15 and the health department
will bill Medicare. Throughout the
fall and winter months, health depart-
ment officials will be doing outreach
flu clinics for county employees, lo-
cal dairy workers and possibly AARP
m bne.mhlrs

Trenton Medical Center, Bell Fam-
ily Healthcare and Trenton Pediatrics
are also currently offering flu shots.
Between the three health facilities
1100 adult flu shots and 300 pediatric
flu shots were ordered. One hundred
eighty shots have been given between
the three sites since Oct. 1. Flu shots
are provided at these locations for
$20 per shot.
Once vaccinated, the flu shot takes
up to two weeks to protect against
influenza. Vaccines are updated ev-
ery year so an annual vaccination is
recommended. Mild problems could
possibly result from getting a flu shot
including soreness, fever, aches and
redness or swelling where the shot
was given.
Flu shots are recommended for all
children from 6 months to 5 years
old anvnne over the are of 50 wonm-

en who will be pregnant during flu
season and anyone with long-term
health problems such as heart disease,
lung disease, asthma, kidney disease,
metabolic disease such as diabetes,
anemia or other blood disorders.
Anyone with certain muscle or nerve
disorders, such as seizure disorders
or severe cerebral palsy that can lead
to breathing or swallowing problems
should also get a flu shot, as well as
residents of nursing homes and other
chronic-care facilities.
The vaccine is also recommended
for anyone who lives with or cares
for people at high risk for flu-related
complications: heath care providers,
household contacts and caregivers of
children from birth to 5 years old and
people 50 years and older.
Vaccines are good for six months.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

: Meet Your Neighbor:

Fall is a magical time of year as
the temperatures cool and the days
become shorter, we look forward to
the opportunity to get out into the
outdoors. October is the time of year
when we start to feel an expression
or hint of the temperatures beginning
to drop below 70. The goldenrods
are in full bloom and the Iris stems
are green as mid October brings them
into full bloom. Their beautiful pur-
ple and light colored blooms really
dress up a wet roadside ditch and in
the sloughs.
This past weekend I loaded the old
tractor and headed to the woods to
do a little mowing in preparation for
the upcoming hunting season. The
weather was damp and the conditions
were sprinkling rain off and on dur-
ing the morning. The temperatures
were nice and the wildlife seemed to
enjoy it too as they were out feeding
and moving about.
There were several places where
the deer have begun to make scrapes
as the bucks prepare for the upcom-

Fall is in the air and we have lots
of things planned for the month of
October at the Post. They are, first
of all, a spaghetti dinner with all the
trimmings will take place on Thurs-
day night, October 11th at 4 p.m. for
a donation of five dollars.
Second is the Auxiliary's third An-
nual Sock Hop Dance which has been
a big hit in the past. There will be rock
and roll music from the 1950s and
60s by Jerry, good food, a raffle, door
prizes and much more starting at 2
p.m. on Sunday, October 21st, all for

ing rut. The cool temperatures around
the beginning of muzzle loading sea-
son have been around the same time
as the beginning of the deer's rut in
North Central Florida. If you are a
deer hunter, this is a special time of
year when deer often do some unbe-
lievable things.
It appears the number of deer in
this area are growing to a record
level. Often times when I am driving
throughout the county and in the ru-
ral areas, the deer can be seen on the
sides of the highway and out in the
A lot of people that call the Tri-
County area their home enjoy this
time of year because hunting season
is another occasion when we have the
opportunity to get out and experience
the outdoors. Whether it is hunting
doves, bow hunting or wading the
shallows for a redfish, the fall time
of year is simply beautiful and most
enjoyable. If you have the time to get
out in the elements, take someone
with you and enjoy this special time.

a donation of six dollars which goes
to benefit our children and youth in
the area. A basket of cheer will also
be raffled off at the dance.
Next is a Halloween Party for the
area children from 3:30 p.m. until
5:30 p.m. at the Post. We will have
costume contests, bobbing for apples,
candy, hot dogs and lots of fun for the
kids. Later that day beginning at 7:00
p.m., a Halloween Dance is planned
with our popular band, the Salt Water

Weatherization Day to
be October 30
October is National Energy Aware-
ness Month and Oct. 30 has been
designated as National Weatheriza-
tion Day. The State of Florida has
administered the Weatherization As-
sistance Program since its inception
in 1976, and nationwide over 5.5
million homes have been weather-
ized. This day has been designated
to provide recognition of the State
of Florida's Weatherization Program
which provides funds to low-income
families to help reduce energy bills
and to provide a more comfortable
and safe home.
Locally, the Suwannee River Eco-
nomic Council, Inc. Weatherization
Program provides home repairs to
homes in Bradford, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Mad-
ison, 'Suwannee, Taylor and Union
A few of the success stories include
a client's home that needed floor re-
pairs. Once completed, the floor re-
pairs not only reduced air infiltration,
but also made her home tighter and
safer. Another client reports that her
home was greatly improved by the
installation of new doors and win-
dows. She also really likes her new
hot water heater. Another client had
windows broken out, exterior doors
that were not closing and bathroom
floors that had fallen in thus caus-
ing air infiltration in the home. All of
these problems have been corrected
and the client is very happy with the

' Respecting Those In Authority
(Kent Heaton)

A nation that crumbles in the chaos of rion-conformity
is a people that have rejected all forms of authority.
Nature declares the need for authority as laws are
established that govern life. Disobeying these laws will
cause one to suffer consequences that Jehovah put into
place that are unchangeable. Man cannot fly without aid
and when he goes against this law he suffers physical
harm. As in the immutable laws of nature, authority is
established in government by God and to resist this
authority will bring serious consequences.
Paul writes, "Every person is to be in subjection to
the governing authorities. For there is no authority
except from God, and those which exist are established
by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has
opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have
opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves"
(Romans 13:1-2). In our world of freedom we must
remember that while we have opportunities to express
our freedom we cannot do so in a fashion that goes
against the government. The only time this is allowed is
when the law of the land declares law contrary to the law
of God (Acts 5:29).
Recent events such as the student TASERed at the
University of Florida and hours of COPS illustrate that
many people refuse to recognize authority and resist
every form of it. The lawless attitudes of those who rebel
against law enforcement officers, courts and government
remind us of the steep road we as a nation are traveling to
sure destruction. Schools no longer maintain levels of
authority as students are allowed to curse teachers, refuse
to obey staff and destroy the learning environment of

days gone by. Respect for authority is no longer
recognized by a vast majority of our nation.
The book of Judges concludes with this statement:
"In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone
did what was right in his own eyes" (Judges 21:25).
This sounds more like our time when everyone does
what they choose to do and what they feel is their
"right" to do. When men fail to recognize authority and
respect the authority that exists, there are no boundaries
or limits. The root of the problem stems from the
suppression of God in the lives of men. "The fool has
said in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt,
and have committed abominable injustice" (Psalms
Without God men seek to do what is right in their
own eyes. Authority is based upon selfish motives of the
individual. What is right and wrong is measured by the
desires of the moment. Through the prophet Isaiah
Jehovah God reminds us of the consequences of those
who seek to usurp authority. "Woe to those who call evil
good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light
and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their
own eyes and clever in their own sight" (Isaiah
There is only one clear truth the truth of God (John
17:17). Rejecting this truth is rejecting authority.
Refusing to obey authority is refusing to obey the Son of
God. Jesus said, "All authority has been given to Me in
heaven and on earth" (Matthew 28:18). Dare we reject
this authority?

By Cindy Jo Ayers

Standing at the kitchen sink with
my hands buried in dish suds this
morning I began to ponder on my
favorite apron. It's a heavy blue den-
im one that one of my best friends
Wilma Jean Asbell gave me several
years ago. I started wearing aprons a
couple of years ago when my middle
aged tummy began to round out to
the point of my blouse becoming wet
at my once-upon-a-time waist line.
Needless to say, I love to piddle in
my kitchen and therefore the wearing
of my favorite apron has become a
daily habit.
While I was washing away on a
stack of dirty dishes I remembered a
box in my closet which contains my,
treasury of flour sack and feed sack
fabric. There is a special soft blue
piece with little flowers that would
make a wonderful apron. I keep hold-
ing on to my small stash of feed/flour
sack fabric hoping to one day make a
quilt from them.
The feed sacks themselves have an
interesting history. Between 1840 to
1890 cotton sacks gradually replaced
barrels as food shipping containers.
Most of the logos on the sacks were
circular and these round logos were
carry overs from when the logos had
fit on the top of a barrel. Women real-
ized, that this fabric could be used for
quilts and many other things.
A good friend of mine who is a
few years old thanI am once told me
that she was in high school before
she realized that-bed sheets could be
made out of anything other than feed
Between 1914 and 1929 the bot-
tom dropped out of the cotton mar-
ket. This occurred partly because of
new types 'of fabric being invented.
When cotton became so cheap even
more products were shipped in bags.
At one time all these bags were
plain unbleached cotton with product
brands printed on them. Housewives
used everything from kerosene io lard
to try to wash out the label. It took
av while for feed and flour _ack mak-
ers to realize how much women were
using their sacks. Around 1925 color-
ful prints began to appear in stores.
These sacks had paper labels which
were much easier to remove.
By the 1930s there was heated
competition to produce e most at-
tractive and therefore the most sought
after prints. Women picked out flour,
sugar, beans, rice, cornmeal and even
feed and fertilizer for the family farm
based on which fabrics they desired.

Some manufacturers even made bags
with applique and quilt -blocks pre-
printed on them.
It became common for women to
trade sacks in order to get patterns
that matched fabric they already had.
Feed sacks were a way women pro-
vided clothing and bed covering for
their family during the economic hard
times of the boll weevil depression in
the South in the 1920s and the great
depression that followed. Feed sacks
were used well after WWII. Back
then it was necessary to conserve
because of the need for war supplies
and using feed sacks was considered
My own mother speaks of it taking
three cow feed sacks to make a dress
back during the war. My father had
strict instructions to pick out three
sacks that matched. I can just see it
now, a bunch of grown men sorting
through the 100 pound bags of feed
trying to find three that matched. This
sorting occurred at Cotton Producers
Association or CPA located in an old
wooden barrack that was at one time
a part of a CCC camp. CPA was lo-
cated in the same area as the former
Western Auto Store in Chiefland.
You know that pretty blue feed
sack fabric may just stay in my fabric
stash for a little longer. To tell you the
truth, I just don't have the heart to cut
it up. Maybe I'll just take it out every
now and again and just admire it.

1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pack active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 large egg, beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour
Cook first 4 ingredients in a sauce-
pan over low heat, stirring until but-
ter is melted. Cool to 100 degrees to
110 degrees. .
Dissolve east in 1,4 cup waq.wa-
ter in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5
minutes. Stir in sour cream mixture
and egg. Gradually add flour to yeast
mixture, mixing well. Dough will be
wet. Cover and chill 8 hours.
Punch dough down. Shape into
36 1-inch balls. Place 3 balls in each
lightly greased muffin cup. Cover
and let rise in a warm place free from
drafts for 1 hour.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12
minutes or until golden brown.

Mr. Tommy Langford of Trenton shows the Lil' Famers 4-H club about taxi-

On October 1st the Lil' Farmers
4-H Club held a meeting. We had
many members in attendance to lis-
ten to our guest speaker Mr. Tommy
Langford of Trenton. He came and
told us about being a taxidermist. He
explained how he makes the mounts
and that it takes him about five hours.
Mr. Langford said he had been doing
this for 29 years and started because
he enjoys animals. He told us that the
hardest animal to work with is a bird.
Lil' Farmers would like to thank Mr.
Tommy for coming out and speaking
to us.
The club continued with business

and we got a group together to par-
ticipate in the scarecrow contest. Be
sure to look for the many 4-H scare-
crows on the front lawn of the court-
house in Trenton.
We also covered important dates
regarding the fair and we got our
judging teams together.

Bell demolishes
Maclay 39-7
By Joel Elliott
Last Friday night, the Bell Bull-
dogs made the lengthy trip to Talla-
hassee to face the Marauders of Ma-
clay School. 1 thought that perhaps
traveling north would rid us of the
rain that makes football difficult and
note-taking impossible. I was wrong.
However, the Bell Varsity Cheerlead-
ers, despite the rain, did a great job
pepping up the crowd all night. Once
again, the Bulldogs played under
rainy and wet conditions. And once
again, the conditions didn't have a
pronounced effect on how the Bull-
dogs were able to play.
The Bulldogs would kick off to
start the game, and the Maraud-
ers completed a few passes before
Mitchell Cannon jumped on a fumble
around midfield. Given excellent
field position, Lee Carlisle and Bub-
ba Joiner would pick up consecutive
first downs on the ground. Then, Jus-
tin Fowler would scramble his way
down to the 8-yard line. Finally, Lee
Carlisle would burst through the line
for a 1-yard TD run with 6:19 left
in the quarter. After the kickoff, the
Bell defense would get a great effort
from Robby Heck, who would sack
the quarterback on 3rd down, forcing
the Marauders to punt. The Bulldogs
would start the drive from their own
24-yard line. Lee Carlisle would take
it to the Marauder's 35-yard line froili
there. After that, Justin Fowler found
a streaking Robert Hankins for a 35-
yard touchdown with 1:43 left in the
quarter. The kick was unsuccessful,
and the score was 13-0. Once the
Marauders got the ball back, they
wouldn't keep it long. Paul Clark
would intercept a Maclay pass, and
return it to the 45-yard line. This
would conclude play in the opening
The Bulldogs couldn't convert af-
ter the Maclay turnover, bu iaftr -r ihe
punt, Maclay would give the Bull-
dogs another chance. They would
turn over the ball on a fumble, and
the Bulldogs would get the ball at
their own 37-yard line. To start the
drive off, Fowler would hit Robert-
Hankins on a 34-yard pass play that
would advance the ball all the way to
the Marauder's 39-yard line. Here,
the Bulldogs would utilize their great
running game. Picking up four. and
five yards every play, the Bulldogs
would take care of the football and
not let the conditions dictate who
would win the game. The drive cul-
minated with a Bubba Joiner 3-yard
touchdown run. With 5:27 left in the
half, the score was 19-0. After the
score, Maclay would make a drive,
but were forced to punt after a great
defensive stand. This would end the
second quarter.
The Bulldogs would receive, the
ball to start the second.half. After
starting from the 35-yard line, the
Bulldogs drove quickly down the
field. Bubba Joiner would punch it
in with 8:48 left in the quarter. Bell
would not have to wait long to get
the ball back. Bubba joiner would
make a great interception, and give
the Bulldogs the ball at the Maclay
35-yard line. This would set up a 30-
yard run by Lee Carlisle. After that,
the Bell defense would force Maclay


to punt, and Bell would get the ball at
the 30-yard line to end the 3rd quar-
The Bulldogs coaching staff was
then able to put in substitutes on of-
fense. Maclay couldn't even handle
the Bell freshmen and sophomores,
and the great drive ended with Garth
Frier rumbling 35 yards for a touch-
down. The Bulldogs would extend
their lead to 39-0. At this point, fresh-
men Garth Frier and Bradley Teck-
enbrock began showing their defen-
sive prowess, holding the Marauders
back. To add to the youngsters great
performance, junior Chris Wilker-
son jumped on a fumble and gave
the Bulldogs the ball at the 25-yard
line. The'drive would be cut short on
a fumble that the Marauders would
return for a score. Maclay would
roll the dice with an onside kick, but
junior Ty Smith alertly jumped on
it. The Bulldogs would run out the
clock and win the game 39-7.
The win boosted the Bulldogs re-
cord to 5-1, which is a good sign a
little more than halfway through the
season. Lee Carlisle had a great
game, carrying the ball 21 times for
167 yards and two touchdowns. Jus-
tin Fowler had 77 yards passing and
added a touchdown pass to Robert
Hankins. Bell's next game will be
away against Branford, with.the kick-
off set for 7:30 pm.

The Bell Junior Varsity High-Q team is pictured from left, Emily Zer-
be, Kyle Johnson, Captain Kristen Burke and Garrett Hudson.

By Jamie. Tucker
On Tuesday, October 2nd, Bell
High School's Junior Varsity and
Varsity High-Q teams knocked off
the academic teams from Trenton
High School. The day was dreary
and wet but the Bulldog teams didn't
let the rain dampen their spirits.
The Trenton teams traveled to,
Bell for the first competition of the
season. Coaches Ron Frigon and
Roberta Kreinbihl started the compe-
tition by getting their teams settled..
Dr. Frigon went over the rules and
introduced the moderator and judges.
The competition began and the stu-
dents, armed with pencils and pieces
of scrap paper, battled the clock and
each other to answer complex ques-
tions. Questions ranged from histori-
cal facts to current events and math-
ematical computations to classical
literature quotes.
The Junior Varsity team concluded
their third round match with their first
win. Their team consists of Captain
Kristen Burke, Garrett Hudson, Kyle
Johnson, Bobby Brito, Wyatt Rajer,
Larana Wingate, and Emily Zerbe.
The Varsity team, with Captain Joel

Elliot, consists of Jamie Tucker,
Bobby Wilson, Pete Camfferman,
Ray Duvall, and Thomas Peace. This
team took the competition into the
last round with only a 5- point lead
but kicked it into high gear to take the
Dr. Ron Frigon coaches the Bell
High School High-Q academic team.
He has been the coach for the past
four years. The High-Q team is open
to all students and consists of :stu-
dents that can commit their time to
the group. The group that participates
is very well prepared for the high de-
mands of the preparation and compe-
tition. Just to have the opportunity to
learn to work together as a team, to
travel to different places for competi-
tion, and to learn the real-life skills
of handling victory and coping with
defeat are sufficient incentive and re-
ward to invest time in High-Q.
These first victories will serve
to propel the teams into their future
matches. Bell High School High-Q
team would like to invite you to stop
in and watch, one of their competi-
tions during this school year. See the

FWC says not all black
powder guns are legal
for muzzle loading gun
The Florida Fishi and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
wants to make it clear to all muzzle
loader hunters not all muzzle loaders
are created equal. Some of the new
models do not meet the legal defini-
tion of guns authorized for use during
muzzle loading gun season.
The two issues which seem to be
generating the most questions are
whether muzzle loaders with an elec-
tronic ignition are legal and whether
the use of nitro-cellulose powder
is legal. Neither is legal for use in
Florida during muzzle loading gun
"In particular, the CVA Electra is
a new muzzle loader on the market
that doesn't qualify as a state-defined
muzzle loader," said Capt. John Mill-
er of FWC's Division of Law En-
forcement. "It is not a legal weapon
for muzzle loader season because it
uses an electronic ignition, fired by a'
The legal types of guns for use
during the muzzle loading gun sea-
son use black powder or a non-nitro-
cellulose substitute and are fired by
wheel lock, flintlock or percussion
cap ignition. They are not adaptable
to use of any self-contained cartridge
The CVA Electra muzzle loader is
legal to use during general gun sea-
son however.

Joyful Heart Quilter News

Ms. Lois Brown, a resident at Ayers, celebrated her birthday in September.
Among her gifts was the card carousel from the Joyful Heart Quilters and

Wednesday, October 3rd only 17
Joyful Hearts made it to our circle of
friendship to work on all their proj-
ects in progress.
Pat Luka, Ann Mangone, Cathy
Strom and Elaine Nemeth lovingly
stitched tiny neat quilting stitches on
our Joyful Hearts quilt.
Ann Taylor and Myrle Gilkey con-
tinued knitting while Ruth Wilkerson
and Heidi Kamp crocheted. Ann gave
up her knitting and joined Diana Lynn
who was working on another of our
group quilts. Of course, the Swedish
weavers, Alice Binns, Mary Lou Ry-
der,- Jackie Moore and Lu Rowland
were right on task. Bonnie Edwards
and I worked on a Bell Elementary
school project and Barbara Strom
and Barbara Myrick tried to figure
out and play a card game they once
had enjoyed.

A big thank you to all the volunteers

The rain of late has been great, now

42 children to benefit from

Guardian ad Litem volunteers

By Carrie A. Mizell
Six new Guardian ad Litem Pro-
gram volunteers were sworn in by
Judge David A. Glant on Monday,
Oct. 1 during, a ceremony held at the
Levy County Courthouse.
Volunteers who were recently
recruited and trained through the
Guardian ad Litem program are: Da-
vid Kerney, Sharon Wolfe, Veleita
Lovelace, Debbie Junkin, Tammy
Hewett and Paul Champion.
Once sworn in, the volunteers be-
gan working with some of the 42 in-
nocent children in Gilchrist County
who have been removed from their
homes because ,of alleged abuse,
abandonment or neglect. Through no
fault of their own, these children are
placed into the dependency court sys-
tem with no voice of their own. Enter
the Guardian ad Litem Program. The
new volunteers will be court appoint-

ed to advocate for the best interests
of the child. The Guardian ad Litem
volunteer becomes familiar with the
child and the child's case and makes
recommendations to the court to help
ensure a safe, caring, stable and per-
manent environment.
"This graduation means that 12
to 15 children will not have to walk
through this nightmare alone," said
Michael Whiting, case coordinator
for the Guardian ad Litem program.
"It is important for the community to
know that we have many more chil-
dren than we have resources and vol-
unteers available in our area."
The Guardian ad Litem Program
is always in need of community sup-
port for abused and abandoned chil-
dren involved in the court process in
,Gilchrist and Levy counties.

,700 collected.

fundraiser; $6
By Cindy Jo Ayers
Gerald and Joanne Roberts
of Bell hosted the third an-
nual barbecue fundraiser to
benefit the Lupus Founda-
tion of America, Inc., Greater
Florida Chapter on Saturday,
Oct. 6 at Otter Springs Resort
near Wilcox.
The Roberts did not pull
off the feat alone, they had a
lot of help from members of
their large family and many *,.,
devoted friends. This year's
event was held in memory of
the late Jim Hodge of Tren-
ton and the late Dina Roberts
Wasson of Chiefland. Jim and
Dina were first cousins and
both passed away after fight-
ing long courageous battles
with lupus. As of Monday a
total of $6,700 had been col-
lected for this worthy cause
and Mrs. Roberts said that
more money may still arrive.
Of the past three lupus fund-raisers
this one was the most well supported
with around 300 people attending the
event. The last two fundraisers along
with the publishing of a cookbook
has earned a total of $14,500 which
was turned in for lupus research from
this area.
Julie Thomas of Bell who was a
classmate of Dina's was the master of
ceremony on Saturday evening. Julie
introduced the guest speakers for the
evening: Josh Wasson who is Dina's
son, Maggie McQueen of the Lupus
Foundation, Robert Pearce one of
Jim's many friends, and Rep. Debbie
Ms. McQueen told the crowd
about the current research efforts
being funded by the Greater Florida
This year's fund-raiser, as in
the past, featured wonderful home

cooked dishes which accompanied
barbecue cooked by Gerald Roberts
and Lloyd Whann of M.M. Parrish.
Also many wonderful homemade
desserts were enjoyed by those at-
tending the event.
Cracker Johnson volunteered
his time as an auctioneer. The auc-
tion started with a Gator basketball
signed by Billy Donc an.
The basketball was finally\
purchased by Arnold ind
Gerri Jackson, owners of
Otter Springs RV Resorn.
The basketball went for
$700. A beautiful throw
quilt made, by Connie
Hodge was purchased b\
Nancy Hodge Jim's wite.
The auction was fol-
lowed by a silent auction
which also raised quite a
bit of money. The silent
auction was organized by
Lisa Townsend Thomas
and Lori Townsend Kara-
biean, both of whom \ ere
Dina's cousins. Several
gift baskets along \ ith
many other nice items w ere
purchased. Selma McClarian made a
quilt wall hanging for the event. The
wall hanging raised the most money

of any item in the silent auction.
A very nice charcoal grill was also
given away in a raffle to Augie Ver-
zaro of Bell.
When the event was over Mrs. Rob-
' erts said, "I couldn't be more pleased
with the outcome of this year's fund-
raiser. This was our best one yet."

basketball to Arnold Jackson. .
