Philman's patriotic spirit was shaped during Vietnam service

By Carrie A. Mizell
Though he wouldn't want to go
through Vietnam again, County Judge
Ed Philman said he wouldn't take
anything for the experience which
allows him to relate to American sol-
diers currently serving in Iraq.
Shortly after finishing forest ranger
school at Lake City Community Col-
lege, Philman was drafted into the
service in 1965 at the age of 20. At
the time, the 1963 Bell School gradu-
ate was working for a timber com-
pany out of state.
"A lot of people didn't want to go
to Vietnam," Philman said. "I felt
honored to go, but I was certainly a
little apprehensive."
He was initially sent to boot camp
at Fort Gordon, Georgia before at-
tending advanced infantry training

at Fort Pope, Louisiana. From there,
a 21-year-old Philman was, sent to
While serving with the First Infan-
try Division, Philman was given an
M16 rifle.
"We would go on search and de-
stroy missions out in the jungles;"
Philman said. "We would be out in
the jungle anywhere from two weeks
to a month and then we would go
back to base camp for two or three
days before going back out into the
During his year spent serving in
Vietnam, Philman said some days
nothing would happen, but other days
were plagued with difficult times.
"Each week 200 to 500 men lost
their lives in Vietnam and that's not
counting the ones who were wound-

ed," Philman said. "I never thought
about a fear of being killed, though
I served in danger ... I've got a good
relationship with God."
It was while on his first mission in
the jungle that Philman said he real-
ized he was really in the middle of
a war. Each soldier was given two
canteens to take on the mission and
Philman said he ran out of water by
noon one day. A sergeant gave Phil-
man some of his water, but advised
him not to run out again.
On Easter Sunday 1967, Philman
returned to Gilchrist County. Though
he didn't make it home in time for
church, he said he did get to enjoy a
strawberry milkshake within days of
arriving home. The milkshake was
the one treat he desperately craved
while in Vietnam.

Philman no longer sees any of the
men he served with in Vietnam be- .it-
cause everyone is scattered across -
the country, but that doesn't mean he
no longer thinks about his service to ..
the country. Memories fade over the
years as Philman lives each day, try-
ing not to dwell on Vietnam.
"I was in physical danger in Viet-
nam, but my parents really suffered
a lack of peace of mind," Philman
said. "I think Veteran's Day is about
Americans honoring us and what we *
did, but also about our families and
their sacrifice."

Bell Library celebrates 11-year history

By Carrie A. Mizell
Hearty laughter and pleasant con-
versation could be heard at Bell Li-
brary on Friday afternoon as volun-,
teers' shared fond memories of their
time spent manning the front desk,
shelving books and assisting readers
during the library's 11-year history.
Numerous finger foods, pink punch
and a large cake commemorating the
anniversary of the library, were en-
joyed by the stream of well wishers"
who stopped by the library to cel-
ebrate its milestone.
The Bell Library opened on Nov.
2, 1996 in what Iris Roberts calls, a
dream realized. A group of ladies who
were all former educators, including
Roberts, Jean daCosta and Shirley

Frey, recognized that children and
students living in Bell did not have
access to books. At -he time, if a fam-
ily lived in north Gilchrist County
and wanted to visit a library they had
to drive 15 to 20 miles to the Trenton
Library. At the start, the goal was to
establish a children's library. The for-
mer town council office, "shich was
adjacent to the Bell Post Office, was
made available. Within a few weeks
enough adult arid children's books
were donated by the community to
fill the shelves of the small library.
Once the new post office
was built on the north end of Bell,
the Town of Bell gave the library
permission to use the space the post
office vacated. Local businesses and

1200 people attend Down
By Carrie A. Mizell
From bluegrass music to fried oys-
ters and beauty queens, the 23rd an- -- '-
nual Down Home Days festival was .' .-
considered a hit by the nearly 1200 '5A
people who examined the multitude '
of arts and crafts while walking the '
rows of booths on Saturday.
Hosted by the Community Church -
of the Nazarene, the 2007 event fea-
tured 84 booths, various foods, live

individuals in the community happily
donated building supplies and labor.
Once the renovations were com-
plete a grand opening was held and a
plaque was mounted on the wall rec-
ognizing those who made donations
and had given of their time and ef-
fort. A representative from Wal-Mart
presented the library with two new
computers and e-mail became avail-
able to patrons of the library.
Over the years the donations have
continued. Sections were designated
for large print books and another for
classic editions. Other areas include:
fiction, videos, DVDs, books on tape,
non fiction, westerns, inspirational
and biographies. Also there is a sepa-

on Down Home Days," Pastor Merle
Goodrich said on Monday. "We are

everything went off and the compli-

Despite a delay in planning the an-
nual event, Goodrich said, the church
was able to play catch up. Unlike
years past when the event was hosted

by the Gilchrist County Chamber of
Commerce, the church volunteered
to host this year's Down Home Days
after it was announced that the event
would be cancelled for lack of an ad-
equate location.
Saturday's event was held on the
church's 10-acres located on SR 26
two miles west of Trenton. Despite
early concerns, the parking area out

The past six years, I have faithfully
served in the office of Trenton May-
or. It is a task that I have enjoyed, (for
the most part.) Many decisions have
had to be made, some pleasant some
unpleasant. While striving to reach
the correct decision, I would do my
homework, study and yes! pray for
guidance to make the right decision.
The Mayor has a sworn duty as an
elected official to insure the health,
welfare, and safety of the city he/she
represents. I have done this to the
best of my ability and if re-elected I
will continue to do the same.
I was and still am sincere when, I
had this motto printed on my busi-
ness cards, "Looking Forward to the
Future and Remember Our Past."

Jocal fruitcakes baked to the glory of God

By Carrie A. Mizell
The sweet smell of holiday baking
wafts through the air at Bell Church

prepare batches of'flavorful fruitcake
to sell to the public.
Sixteen church members meet to
prepare fruitcake on seven different
Saturday, beginning the first Satur-
day in October and concluding, on
the first Saturday in December. The
fellowship hall's kitchen is a bevy of
activity by 7 a.m. as baking begins.
By 5:30 p.m. the group winds down
for the day, having baked 320 pounds
of fruitcake.'A total of 2100 pounds
of fruitcake are made each year in
what Pastor Dale Thigpen refers to as
a church ministry/fundraiser.
"I didn't eat fruitcake until I got
here," Thigpen said, referring to his
two years as pastor of Bell Church of
Sandra Chesser. and Flora Brock

ents include Gold Medal flour and
Blue Bonnet margarine, according to
The ingredients are not % hat makes
the fruitcakes so popular. Chesser

said, it's the prayer that goes into
each baking.
"We're very consistent every year,"
Chesser said.
Over the years, the church has
funded various re-modeling projects
with fruitcake funds, including new
carpet, pews, air conditioning and
other general improvements.
"Our project naw is to extend the
fellowship hall," Thigpen said. "We
will purchase another oven if we raise
enough money for the expansion."
The fruitcakes are the only fund-
raiser the church, which averages 25
to 30 members on Sunday mornings,
has held in eight years.
Fruitcakes are sold on a first come
first serve basis until after the last
cooking on Dec. 1. Three different

sizes: small $6, medium $11 and
large $25 are sold each year.
Church members sell fruitcakes
in front of Wal-Mart in Chiefland on
three Saturdays in November and the
Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
Many of the church's customers are
repeat customers who live in the tri-
county area, but fruitcakes have also
been sold to families to be shipped to
troops in Iraq.
"Through these fruitcakes we make
contact with people and sometimes
we're able to pray with people,"
Thigpen said. "If this was not a min-
istry for the church, we wouldn't be
doing it."

The town council was addressed
by Sidney Philpot about a develop-
ment that would provide property for

term endeavor that would benefit the
residents of Gilchrist County as well
as students in neighboring counties.
The town council had a lengthy
discussion before a motion was pre-
sented to support the college. The
motion included the Town of Bell
committing its total and continuing
support toward the establishment and
operation of a new community col-
lege campus in Gilchrist County and

ing parties determine should be an-
nexed in order to create a desirable

amendment of any comprehensive
plan based on plans designed by a
qualified engineer, surveyor or land
use planner approved by the land-
owner or owners.

the community college in the fu-
ture in every way possible and, at
the community college's request, by
applying for and seeking any grants
available for infrastructure, includ-

Chamber of Commerce officials and
told them the church would be inter-
ested in hosting the event each year.
"I told them that if they want us to
do this then give it to us and we will
take it and run with it, but if we're
just going, to be filling in here and
there for them, then we're not inter-
ested," Goodrich said.
Maureen Gentry, executive direc-
tor of the Gilchrist County Chamber
of Commerce, confirmed that several
people in the community have said to

host the event then they would have
asked to host it, but at this time no
other local business, community or-
ganization, or church has specifical-
ly turned in a request to host Down

Goodrich believes it would be a
mistake for the Chamber of Com-
merce to move Down Home Days

people that there is no consistency,"
Goodrich said.
A decision on the future of Down

"We are very appreciative of our.
customer support over the last six
and a half years that has allowed us
to move into this new facility," said
Vice President Scott Guthrie.
The bank is patterned after the Gil-
christ County Courthouse, former
Trenton Church of God and various
homes around town, all of which

epitomized the aits and crafts move-
ment that swept America between
1898 and the 1930s.
"The arts and crafts architecture of
Trenton is remarkable in that no other
town in Florida, that we know of for
its size and location, displays so many
houses and commercial buildings in
this sta le. that are still in existence,"
said Tito Comas, a graphic designer
who worked on the new bank.

ton has so many structures of arts and
crafts style."
The community is invited to an

day, Nov. 8 from 4:30 to 6 p.m..

McQueen explained to the board
that he and Commission Chairman
Randy Durden had met with state of
Florida EOC officials and Gilchrist
County could file an appeal to seek
reimbursement funding to supple-
ment the grant revenues.
The county administrator told the
board that Gilchrist County had sub-
mitted an appeal for $193,000 to the
Bureau of Recovery and Mitigation
with the Federal Emergency Man-

I love pecans! Paying homage to.
the illustrious Bubba Gump: I have to
say that you can eat pecans in pecan
pie, divinity, pecan tassies, pralines,
pecan brittle and so on.
When I come into the office on
Tuesday and Fridays I have to stop
out in the parking lot before I even
come in the back door to pick up my
mid-morning snack, pecans. Begin-
ning in October, the ancient pecan
trees behind the office start dropping
the tasty treats. This year seems to
be a particularly good year for grow-
ing pecans due to the drought that
has gripped much of the southeast.
While there are no commercial pecan
growers in Gilchrist County, Marvin
Weaver told me that many residents,
like our family, still have pecan trees
producing nuts on their property.
Georgia is on pace to be the na-
tion's top pecan producer this year,
with sellers predicting more than
125 million pounds harvested, ac-
cording to the University of Georgia.
Forget 125 million, I just wish I
could say that I will be shelling 125
pecans this year, but that doesn't look
like its going to happen. Last week I
had to buy pecans at the grocery store
for $7.50 a pound to make a pecan
pie for Adam's family reunion.
I could have just picked up the pe-
cans in the parking lot, but unfortu-
nately the Gilchrist County Journal
is robbed daily of its pecans. That's
right, thieves are preying on our. pe-

cans in broad daylight despite our
Each day the Journal staff has to
run off at least one pecan thief brazen
enough to step onto private property
and steal. Over the last several weeks
we've heard some really amusing ex-
cuses from the thieves. One man said
that the pecans he was picking up in
our parking lot would be all he had to
eat that night. Not to be harsh, but I
can't imagine what the well-dressed
man eats the other 10 months of the
year when pecan trees are not pro-
Earlier this week my mom pulled
up at the office to find a man standing
under one of our pecan trees picking
up fallen limbs and throwing them up
into the trees in an attempt to make
the nuts fall. The funny thing is he
was throwing the limbs up so high
and with such momentum that he had
to jump out of the way so the limb
wouldn't fall back down and hit him
in the head. He had the audacity to
act offended when my mom asked
him to stop harassing our pecan trees
and leave the property before she
called the law.
Can you even imagine? The really
sad part is these are grown men not
mischievous teenagers out looking
for fun.
As my -great-grandmother Idell
Beauchamp used to say, "Ahhh bud-
,dy, times they are a changing.".

Do We Have Rules To Follow?
(Kent Heaton)

The feeling of most in the Protestant churches embrace
a doctrine of salvation that is based more on feeling than
expressions of works. Salvation solely by faith is the
foundation of most teaching in the denominations of our
community. The emphasis is the Calvinistic theory of
indwellingg of the Holy Spirit dismisses any need to be
saved by works. Billy Graham vrote, "We are saved
solely by our faith in Christ, not by our works."
[Gainesville Sun, October 27, 2007]. Are Christians
required to follow rules to be saved?
The Bible teaches that salvation is not by faith alone
nor by works alone. James 2 clearly testifies that
justification, is by faith AND works. God demands that
His children be obedient to Him which requires an action
of works. Jesus taught in Matthew 7:21 that salvation
cannot be accomplished without doing the will of the
Father. If we were saved by faith alone there would be
nothing else to do. The apostle Paul believed that
salvation was more than faith alone: "So then, my
beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my
presence only, but now much more in my absence, work
out your salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians
2:12). He does not contradict what he told the brethren at
Ephesus in Ephesians 2:4-10. The salvation of Ephesians
2 is the salvation that .can only come from the Lord and
his grace; the salvation of James 2 and Philippians 2 is
what man is required to act upon that grace.
If Christians do not have rules to follow then we are
without obligation to keep the law of God.. Failing to
keep the law of God would mean we do not love Jesus
Christ. "If you love Me, you will keep My
commandments" (John 14:15). "If you keep My

commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I
have kept My Father's commandments and abide in
His love" (John 15:10). Jesus said we must keep His
commandments. From the Law of Moses we find the
Lord telling the children of Israel to "diligently keep the
commandments of the LORD your God, and His
testimonies and His statutes which He has commanded
you. You shall do what is right and good in the sight of
the Lord" (Deuteronomy 6:17-18). The child of God
cannot do what is right and good without doing (works)
the will of the Father.
God has always had commandments, testimonies,
statutes, laws, rules and regulations for his people to
keep. The life of a Christian is not one of the drudgery
of law keeping but keeping the law because we love the
Lord. "By this we know that we love the children of
God, when we love. God and observe His
commandments. For this is the love of God, that we
keep His commandments; and His commandments are
not burdensome. For whatever is born of God
overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has
overcome the world--our faith" (1 John 5:2-4).
Salvation is by our faith working with our works, and as
a result of our works, faith is perfected (James 2:22).
Jesus said, "Blessed are they that hear the word of
God, and keep it ... If a man love me, he will keep my
word: and my Father will love him, and we will come
unto him, and make our abode with him" (Luke 11:28;
John 14:23). Without keeping the word of God, we will
never find the blessing of a full life here or the promise
,of eternal life.

Bam, bam, bam goes the sound
of little bare feet pounding down the
weathered old dock. At the end of the
dock a frayed rope is bound to a rusty
and slightly dented trap. As the five-
year-old boy clad only in knee length
swimming shorts grabs the rope and
young muscles flex as his thin arms
tug mightily. The child is hoping to
pull up a much awaited treasure.
"Look, look, PePa I got six crabs,
big old crabs" the boy yells as he lifts
the tattered trap onto the dock. His
grandfather standing only a few feet
away gives a slight grin and chuckles,
"I see son, they are really fine ones.".
The youngsters chocolate brown eyes
a duplicate of his grandfathers twin-
kle as he proudy surveys his catch.
His grandfather patiently unhooks
the trap lid and helps the boy shake
the crabs into a tall white bucket.
This tradition of the grandfather
baiting hooks, helping bait crab traps
and generally keeping his grandchil-
dren safe as they swam, fished and
crabbed from the dock continued
through their entire childhood.
When their families arrived at the
fourth generation family fish camp in
Suwannee the race was on. Any one
of the four grandchildren would race
down the dock to its end. They passed
bent nails which were working their
way out of the thick slightly warped
boards. Wood that pounding' feet,
wind, rain and several hurricanes had
worn silk smooth from the passing of
time and'weather.
I'm not sure to this day what
brought on this inevitable race to the
end of the dock. Maybe they felt the
need to see if the brackish river water
was still rolling down to merge with
the salty gulf. It could have been the
need to just hear the pounding of their
own feet as they raced along. What-,
ever the. reasoning, in their young
minds the\ alas without fail re-
turned 'a alknig aloni slov.ly. looking
o\er the dock- edge into the rner to
see v.hat changes had occurred since
their last visit. They would leave
the dock with a satisfied smile past-
ed to the often sunburned cheeks. I
guess in their young minds if the old
weathered dock was still sitting upon
its leaning supports and the Suwan-
nee was still winding its way past the
camp then all must surely be right
with the world. '
Ah, precious memories of days gone

The old dock remains to this day
some fifteen or so years after those
little feet pounded down it. Although
those children's faithful grandfather
and often times fishing partner J. Min
Ayers is no longer with us the memo-
ries of these special times remain true
and strong.
If you asked any one of the family
members what his favorite food was
I'm sure we would all respond in one
accord, "blue crabs."
Mostly, the crabs that we ate at
Suwannee were simply boiled and
served atop newsprint with a small
bowl of melted butter. Our family
uses bagged crab boil, a couple of
lemons squeezed and then thrown
into the pot, and a little extra salt
when boiling crabs. We clean the
crabs before they are boiled, pop-,
ping the backs off, cutting away the
finger shaped gills and spraying out
the crab's insides with a hose. Hot
boiled blue crabs a crunchy piece of
garlic bread or some Captain's Wa-
fers and we are all set for what we
all consider a true feast.
Through the years we've eaten crabs
many ways and the recipe that fol-
lows is for blue crab salad. Its really
a simple dish, but oh so good. Fresh
blue crab meat is hard to find but re-
cently I found it at the Hitchcock's
store in Old Town. This crab meat
came from Panacea, Florida and it
was pretty good. If you buy crab from
a supermarket you will need to dump
it into a colander and run cold water
over it slowly. This will gently rinse
all the yellow stuff off the crab and
make it taste much fresher. Be sure to
drain it well. Also, if you cannot find
real blue crab then you can substitute
the imitation crab meat.

just enough mayonnaise to hold the

one hour before serving. We like to

Letter to the Editor

While walking on SE 68th Ter-
race on October 31st I came upon
the body of a dog that had apparently
been shot in the head some time be-
tween noon on October 30 and the
morning of October 31st. The dog, a
young intact male, appeared to have
been well cared for because he was
clean and well-fed, but was missing
a collar. He was mostly white with
black patches, short hair, and was
medium sized, weighing approxi-
mately 40-50 pounds. He appeared
to have been killed at the site because
there was a small amount of blood on
the road and then was moved onto the
bank. Several large boot prints were
visible at the scene.
If anyone is missing a pet that
matches the description, this may be
him. You have my condolences for
your loss.
This road in Waccasassa continues
to be dumping ground by uncaring

people. There are three deer skel-
etons (killed prior to the opening of
hunting season), bags of garbage,
pieces of carpeting, furniture, old
TV sets, and many bottles and cans,
and tires. With the transfer station
just two miles up the road I find it
amazing that people are too lazy to
take their trash there to dispose of it
rather than dumping it along side of
the road. Please be considerate of the
Waccasassa Lake residents.

Political advertisement paid for and approved by, Glen Thigpen for Mayor, City of Trenton, Florida.

by Rufus J.
My life began in Tallahassee, FL,
on April 11, 1938. I'm the "first
born" of the late Rufus and Veda
Washington of Trenton. Both were
bom and reared in Tallahassee. On
July 2, 1960, I married the oldest
daughter, Pearline (Pearl), of the late
Eli and Alteha Anderson of Wilm-
ington, North Carolina. We have
four children. I struck "pure gold"
when I met this shy, classy lady;
she had attributes I'd never seen in
a woman. She's still just as pretty
and classy as she was when I met her
48 years ago. I'm proud to say she's
been a steadfast supporter for almost
50 years. Although I was born in
Tallahassee, I was reared' in Trenton.
Dad worked for the Atlantic Coast
Railroad (ACL). He started work-
ing for the ACL at age 15. His ac-
tive service time did not begin until
he reached age 18. The ACL merged
with the Seaboard Coast Line (SCL)
sometime in- the early 1970s. Today,
it's a part of the CSX Corporation,
Jacksonville, Florida. In 1939, the
ACL ceased operating the "spur"
that serviced rural Leon County. The
foreman, Mr. Adell was transferred to
Cross City. He assured dad that he
would send for him when he had an
opening; and he did. I'm convinced
he created an opening. As a result,
mom and dad moved to Cross City in
1940. In 1943, Mr. Adell was trans-
ferred to Trenton. He said the same
thing to dad. "Don't worry, when
I get an opening I'll send for you;"
and he did. Anyone can be aver-
age; with little or no effort. It takes-
considerable effort to be excellent to
outstanding. My dad was outstand-
ing and earned the confidence of Mr.
Adell as not only a man of integrity
but a consistent, dependable worker.
He was also a talented gardener and
barber. They both worked in mom's
beauty shop for many years. Mom
was a professional beautician. She
went to cosmetology school in Tal-
lahassee from 1944 to 1945. After

Rufus J. Washington
graduating, she established'and op-
erated the "Stay Rite Beauty Shop"
from 1945 until the late 1970s. She
had customers from throughout the
tri-county area. Mrs. Bessie and
Mrs. Lancaster did not allow anyone
to tend their flower bed nor work in
their yard except dad. Mrs. Lancast-
er baked him a chocolate cake, deco-
rated with pecans every Christmas.

Mr. Washington's story will be
continued in the next edition of the
Gilchrist County Journal

since gone on to be successful. Var-
sity standings are 3 wins, 2 losses and'

Bell High School High-Q
Bell High-Q news
The BHS High-Q teams competed at home this week after being on the road the last two weeks. Dixie County
High School came to town for a little friendly local sparing. Don't let that fool you; the Bulldogs were friendly
but very ready for the game. Both junior varsity and varsity pulled off wins to add to their undefeated seasons.
There was a large crowd out to witness the continued success of the team. It is great to see the camaraderie that
goes on between the teams. Even though they are opponents, they are still able to maintain a fun and enjoyable
atmosphere. The teams ended the evening with celebration of refreshments and a little social activity.
Mrs. Rush presented each member with a pair of Groucho Marx glasses and as you can see in the photo, they
were highly amused by her generosity. Mrs. Rush has been an integral part of the team this year, buying dinner,
moderating, and just being very supportive. Continue to watch for further updates, you haven't heard the last
from these teams. Next week the teams will be traveling to Bronson, where our junior varsity team will face
the only other undefeated'team in the league. Thank you and please continue your support for the BHS High-Q.

Bell beats Florida School
for the Deaf and will
host bowl game
November 15
By Joel Elliott
The Bulldogs stayed home last
Thursday night, and hosted the Flor-
ida School for the Deaf, commonly
known as the F. D&B. Since the
game was played early, a select group
of Trenton Tiger football players
came out and supported the Bulldogs
in a true sense of county unity.
The Bulldogs would win the toss,
and defer to the second half. So, the
Dragons would start the game by
taking a gamble. After picking up a
first down, they decided to go for it
on 4th down and 3. Chris Wilkerson
would tackle the Dragon ball carrier
for a loss, forcing them to turn it over
on downs. Justin Fowler would hook
up with Robert Hankins on a 35-yard
TD reception to capitalize on the
Bulldogs great defense. After this,
the teams would trade punts, with
both teams being bogged down by
penalties. After another turnover on

downs by the Dragons, Bell would
drive down the field as the quarter
Fowler would be intercepted in
the end zone however, and the visi-
tors would get the ball at the 20-yard
line. But, the stingy Bulldogs de-
fense wouldn't yield and forced yet
another Dragon punt. Receiving the
ball just past midfield, the Bulldogs
would score quickly, with Mitchell
Cannon barreling his way in from 35
yards out. With 4:25 left in the half,
the Bulldogs were leading 14-0.
Bell would receive the ball at the
35 yard line to begin the third quarter,
and Lee Carlisle outran the Dragon
defense on the first play, sprinting
65 yards for a touchdown. Proving
to be as good on defense as he is
on offense, Lee Carlisle pounced
on a fumble to give the ball right
back to Bulldogs. But, the ball was
equally difficult to hang'oh to for the
Bulldogs, as they fumbled it right
back. But, the Dragons would suc-
cumb to the once again tenacious
Bulldogs defense.
After another Bulldogs punt, the
Dragons would score on a long TD

by Luis Pages to start the fourth
quarter. The Bell offense would punt
again, but The Bulldog "D" would
stop their third 4th down conversion
of the night. Then. the Bulldogs
offense would get started. Bubba
Joiner would gallop fifty yards, and
Lee Carlisle would score his sec-
ond touchdown of the night midway
through the fourth quarter. With the
Dragons driving. Jeremy Zimmer-
man jumped on a Bulldogs fumble to
seal a great game for the Bulldogs.
Justin Fowler had a great game. for
the Bulldogs, throwing for 109 yards
and two touchdowns. Lee Carlisle,
as reliable as ever, rushed for 174
yards on 11 carries with two touch-
downs. Bell is 7-2 and will play the
Bronson Eagles this Friday in Bell at
7:30. It will be senior night, so come
out and support the Bulldogs.
The Bell Bulldogs will be hosting
a bowl game Thursday, November
15th at 7p.m. We will be playing the
Aucilla Christian Warriors. Aucilla is
currently 6-3 and will host Oak Hall
in their final regular season game this

Bell Band Honors their Alumni
In an evening full of anticipation and emotion the Bell Band alumni gathered together to reminisce, laugh and
play a little music.
Band Director, Sara Gover and the Band Boosters hosted a reception prior to the football game for the alumni.
Some of the former band members wore their Senior year theme shirts, the Purple Powerhouse travel shirt or
their band letter jackets. They browsed the old scrapbooks and enjoyed the food and fellowship of old friends.
A pleasant surprise for many of the alumni was the arrival of former Band Director 1990-2003, Kelly Dorsey.
Ms. Dorsey is now the Band Director at Union County High School.

They provided some hisotry of the Band which began in 1954. Other band alumni with longevity attending were
Judge Ed Philman (1963), Joy Railey (1979), and Lisa Hudson (1980).
After a short practice with the Band, the alumni marched with the Band to the pre-game performance. Those
alumni with their instruments performed the Star-Spangled Banner along with the band and the National Anthem
has never sounded 'so beautiful. All the alumni joined the Band in the stands during the game to play and cheer
on the Bulldogs.
At halftime the alumni were introduced and recognized for their years of blood, sweat and tears with the band.
The alumni attending this special event were: Maxine Cummins (1959); Imogene McLeod (1960); Judge Ed
Philman (1963); Joy Railey (1979); Lisa Hudson (1980); Kristen Smith and Jamie Cruz (2000); Thomas Wit-

My second letter to express my concerns for the operational welfare
of Trenton's financial business.
Since announcing that I am a candidate for Mayor, you the people of Trenton have
given me 'much encouragement with your continued interest and help. I believe by
working together we can win this election. Thereby, giving me the privilege of working
with the other four commissioners and our citizens in a way to bring about a strong and
stable financial operation of our city and making it possible to accomplish much and
making improvements throughout the city.
Most of our citizens know that we have had a 3 mill real estate tax and an increase in
our water, garbage and sewer bill this year, which will make a financial burden on some
of our citizens. I pledge to you, our citizens, that I will work hard to bring some financial
help to this matter.
Lavaughn Sessions has worked hard and planned well, thereby making a reasonable
success of his own financial endeavors.
I say this to encourage our citizens to help elect a man with proven ability to help
handle your city business.
Thank you,

BHS Spanish
By: Sean Boutwell
Bell High Spanish classes share their class projects with the school.
The last few weeks Spanish students at Bell High School have been working on two big class projects.
Spanish teacher Maria Zelaya let the students put down the books for a little while and try their hands on learning in a different manner. Mrs. Zelaya's
Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 classes both were assigned the task of making pifiatas.
The pifiatas were made by using balloons. The students then covered the balloons with newspaper that was coated in a flour and water mixture that
provided the paper mache feel. The students came up with all kinds of different ideas for pifiatas, an octopus, a bowling pin,adifferent kinds of fish, and
a monkey are just a few of the pifiatas that were made. The students had a lot of fun.working on this project and their finished pifiatas are on display at
the Bell High School library.
The Spanish 2 class was given another project that counted as their mid term exam. The students had to make up short stories. The students part-
nered up in groups of three and each student had a different role to help make the project move along. The stories turned out great. They showed off the
student's creativity. Each story had pictures and most had a pretty funny story to go along with them.
The students took their finished stories to the ninth grade classes and read them the stories in Spanish. The ninth grade students helped out by reading
the stories back to them in English. Both projects were successful in helping the students have fun and learn some Spanish culture at the same time.
This week the Spanish students will be taking their pifiatas to middle school classes to give the students a gift and something to look forward to when
they get into Spanish.
The students would like to thank Mrs. Maria Zelaya for providing a very fun and educational couple of weeks.

Gilchrist School

Greetings from your Gilchrist County School Nutrition Association.
It's been a very busy and exciting school year thus far. We had fun with
our Florida School Breakfast Week in September and National School
Lunch Week in October. The national theme this year was "Vote For
School Lunch." Students got to participate locally in their schools and
online for their favorite school lunch. The winner was Biff Burger. Kids
really had fun voting with a secret ballot, and receiving "I voted" stick-
ers and other prizes. This was a good way to show the fun and impor-
tance of voting, along with encouraging them to eat nutritional meals.
We also had visitors to our schools. We would like to thank Sheriff
Turner and School Board Members Cloud Haley, Robert Rankin and
Robert Clemmons for helping us serve lunch. It was great for our chil-
dren to see elected officials at our schools and we appreciate their sup-
October 20th, we hosted our Region's Annual Conference in Bell. We
had almost 200 food service workers attend for a day of fun, food, fel-
lowship & training classes. We would like to thank all that were involved
in making this a great success and put Gilchrist Schools on the map!!
Keep encouraging our children to participate in our school breakfast
and lunch programs! It's a great way to get a tasty, well-balanced, and
nutritional breakfast and lunch while at school. If you have any ques-
tions or comments, please feel free to contact us through our Direc-
tor, Danna Tucker, at the.school board office or locally through your
child's cafeteria manager. Thank you for letting us serve the children of
Gilchrist County.

School Resource Deputy. The pas-
sive alcohol sensor is used to check
,alcohol presence with or without a
person's direct participation. An in-
take air port on the unit "sniffs" the
air for alcohol. The P.A.S. can also
be used to detect open containers of
alcoholic beverages, or to detect low
levels of alcohol in enclosed spaces
such as vehicles, jail cells, or school
It is hoped that this device will
assist in stopping underage alcohol

Daily lunches, transportation

provided to area senior citizens

Senior Citizens arrive at the Trenton Senior Center to eat lunch and
play bingo.

By Carrie A. Mizell
Transportation to and from the grocery store, doctor's appointments and
meals are available each day to all senior citizens living in Gilchrist County
through the Suwannee River Economic Council.
Hot lunches are provided each day to senior citizens at the Trenton Senior
Center located at NE First and East Wade Street or the Bell Senior Center
located at NW 50th Street.
"For lunch we average eight to 10 people each day in Trenton and 13 to 14
in Bell," said Sally Browning, case manager. "You have to be 60 years old or
older to be a client, but if someone is 50 years old and they can volunteer to
wipe down tables or sweep the floor then they can eat for free."
Typically the bus pulls up outside the senior centers around 11 a.m. Once
the senior citizens get settled in at tables they talk amongst themselves or play
games like bingo while waiting on lunch to be served.
"The clients used to paint and quilt, but now all they want to do is play
bingo," Browning said.
Through the Suwannee River Economic Council, the senior centers also
provide in-home workers, personal care, bill paying assistance, an Alzheim-

"We used to be able to take them on day trips, but the funding has been cut
and we are no longer able to do that," Browning said.
In the future, Browning said the senior center will get several comput-

Santa Fe River Cleanup
Please come to the Santa Fe River
at the 47 Bridge this Saturday, Nov.
10 at 9:30 am. We need your help
with a cleanup on this part of the
river. People can help on land by
picking up in the, flood plain, setting
critters free from cans and bottles, or
weighing trash as it comes in. Then
we can use lots of snorkelers, but you
will have to bring your own equip-
ment, and I would suggest a wet
suit. Snorkelers are also encouraged
to bring catch bags and dive flags if

4-Pets Sake
This is the conclusion of canine
aggression; we have tried these tech-
niques and they do work for us. Ac-
cording to behaviorist Debra Horwitz
DVM, "a dog may use eye contact,
high tail carriage and or use a stiff-
legged approach. In a normal inter-
action, if one dog responded with
subordinate body posture or cues, the
encounter should end peacefully."
Dr. Dodman believes that fights
turn dangerous when owners use
punishment and or prevent dogs from
resolving early skirmishes on their
own. This turns type I into type II
aggression in which the wrong dog
receives support and encouragement
from the owner. Type II aggression is
most common between two females
who usually get along when alone,
but the minute the owner walks back
in the house, all heck breaks loose.
These dogs want to be in charge but
know they can't unless the owner
backs them up. Dogs who have pre-
viously inflicted injuries that require
stitches or antibiotics must be pre-
vented from fighting and separated
for their own safety.
So, the treatment consists of sup-
porting the true top dog. Dr. Dodman
continues "in 95 percent of cases, the
older and incumbent dog is the al-
pha. These dogs eat first, go through
doors first, act more independent,
exhibit confidence, and require less
attention from the owner. The needy
dog wants to spend all the time with
owner----that's a beta. The top dog
gets greeted first, gets toys firsthand
favored in everything. Privilege al-
ways goes to the alpha. Sometimes
a doctor will advise to medicate the
beta with Prozac and if the situation
is unbearable both the beta and alpha
may be medicated."
Here are several ways'to prevent
or break up fights safely. Dr. Barbara
Sherman says to tell one or both dogs
to sit or lay down as soon as you see
aggressive posturing or hear warn-
ing snarls. Do not pull collars, dogs:
will bite-you thinldking anotherzdog'ii
involved. Avoid yelling, as this can
escalate the arousal.
Dr. Dodman suggests that you bang
pots and pans to startle the dogs apart.
Spray them with a hose if outside; if
indoors, place a chair over top of a
small dog to distract him. Do not go
near the head or neck---you can grab
tails or wheelbarrow the beta. "once
you'-ve broken up the fight, crate the
beta, then make a fuss over the alpha,
so it's just not worth it to the beta."
Good Luck

they have them. Bring your kayak or
canoe and help clean out the strainers
along the river. We will have some
canoemarans and canoes for people
to use, or bring your own along if
you'd like. Or if you have a power
boat, we definitely need a few more
of them to make this cleanup go well.
Another thing we can use is recycle
bins. Of course, you need to remem-
ber to take it back home with you at
the end of the day.
Here's the best part. We'll have
lunch for all volunteers. There will
be soup, chili, burgers and vegie
burgers, hot dogs, etc. Thi s a fun
cleanup -- we had a great time last
November. So consider coming out
to help clean this trashed section that
has become way too popular or a
tubing run. The river needs our help
here. We will plan to work until 2:00
or 3:00 that afternoon.
One more thing. I do need a head
count for food buying purposes, so
please let me hear from you if at all

"Megalodon: Largest Shark that
Ever Lived" exhibit is here through
January 6, 2008. At 60 feet long,
Megalodon was the largest shark that
ever lived and a dominant marine
predator. Sharks are at risk today,
with recent population declines at-
tributed to humans. Though Mega-
lodon vanished 2 million years ago,
its fascinating story inspires lessons
for science and shark conservation.
This exhibit showcases both fossil
and modem shark specimens as well
as full-scale models. Visitors enter
a full-size sculpture of Megalodon
through massive jaws and learn about
when it lived, why it vanished and
shark conservation today.
"The Soul of Florida Landscapes:
paintings by Gary Borse" is an ex-
hibit that will be here through No-

and excitement that someone might
feel, more than see, when experienc-
ing a landscape."

Local farmers recognized for environmental stewardship

By Carrie A. Mizell
Three Gilchrist County farmers
were among 14 Santa Fe River Basin
farmers recognized by the state ag-
riculture commissioner and Florida
Farm Bureau for implementing best
management practices at a Suwan-
nee River Partnership CARES dinner
held last Tuesday.
Local producers Tommy Jones,
Larry Langford and William "Bill"
Douberly each received awards for
their exceptional environmental stew-
ardship at the fifth annual event, held
at Heaven's Gate Farm. These three
farmers join the nearly 300 other
CARES recipients who have already
earned the designation.
Other farmers recognized as
CARES award recipients were: Don
Green, Hugh Colson and Charles
Davis, all of Alachua County, Adam
Wainwright of Bradford County, Ja-
son Holifield of Dixie County, Vince
Dean, Damon Sandlin,- Murray Til-
lis, Mark Graham, David Benton and
Frank Prevatt, all of Levy County.
CARES, the County Alliance for
Responsible Environmental Steward-
ship, was initiated by Florida Farm
Bureau and the Suwannee River Part-
nership to highlight efforts by farm
owners to improve natural resource
management in the Suwannee River
Basin. The partnership includes more
than 60 local, regional, state and fed-
eral agencies, research institutions,
industry associations, businesses and
conservation groups.
Farm owners who have met veri-
fiable standards of excellence in
resource management receive a
CARES designation and earn the
privilege of posting a sign on their
properties identifying them as award
winners for their good work. The
farmers also received a gift basket
and a certificate.
One of the keys to the success of
the program involves site visits by

public officials who assess the imple-
mentation of state-of-the-art resource
management techniques, or Best
Management Practices, at the farm
"Farmers have long been good
stewards of the land," Andrew
Walmsley, environmental services
coordinator for Florida Farm Bureau
said. "Now with new information
and technology available, farmers are
able to be even more proactive when
it comes to protecting the environ-
While acting as emcee for the
evening, Walmsley said it is impor-
tant to recognize those involved in
the CARES program for their role
in maintaining Florida's natural re-
"It is a pleasure for the Department
of Agriculture and Consumer .Servic-
es to be a part of the CARES partner-
ship," said Charles Bronson, Florida
commissioner of agriculture. "Since
I have been in office the state's ag-
riculture industry has gone from $61
billion to $97 billion. Agriculture is
an economic engine for the State of
Bronson also said he believes that
Florida can be a leader in the effort
of producing energy from crops and
timber because of the vast amount of
farm acreage in the state and its mild
climate, which permits crops to be
grown virtually year round. In 2006,
the Farm to Fuel Initiative was cre-
ated to enhance the market for and
promote the production and distribu-
tion of renewable energy from Flor-
ida-grown crops, agricultural wastes
and residues and other biomass and
to enhance the value of agriculture
products while expanding agribusi-
ness in the state.
"During the next five years, if
county commissioners will permit
fuel-making plants that will produce
ethanol and bio-diesel we can take
