Grant funding sought for Gilchrist County Senior Citizens Center

By Carrie A. Mizell
A newly constructed 42,000 square
foot senior citizens center could be
in Gilchrist County's future if the
executive director of the Suwannee
River Economic Council and the Gil-
christ County Board of County Com-
missioners have their grant request
Frances Terry, executive director
. of the Suwannee River Economic
Council asked the Gilchrist County

Board of County Commissioners for
a commitment pledging support for
the proposed facility which would
include four offices and a large open
area where senior citizens would be
served meals.
Dixie, Gilchrist and Union Coun-
ties currently do not have senior
centers, according to Terry. She ex-
plained that grant applications are
being submitted to the state in the
amount of $290,000 per facility.

Terry asked the county commis-
sioners for $82,800 to be used for
in-kind, labor, or site prep funding of
the project.
"These grant funds for senior cen-
ters are highly competitive and we
are just getting started in the pro-
cess," Terry said.
The Suwannee River Economic
Council is currently looking for a one
to two acre parcel of property, Terry
told the commissioners, who in-turn

said that property the county owns
along CR 307A could be a possible
"We have a big population of se-
nior citizens in Gilchrist County,"
Randy Durden, county commission
chairman said. "I think we average
50 to 60 people at AARP meetings
each month and no permanent facil-
ity in the county other than the old
Woman's Club building in.Trenton.
There is a great need for this facil-

County Administrator Ronnie Mc-
Queen explained to Terry and the
commissioners that the county has no
access to skilled inmate labor at this
time, because the county primarily
works with Lancaster Correctional
The county commissioners sug-
gested Terr contact the warden at
the Cross Cit. Correctional Institu-
tion about using skilled inmate labor

on the facility.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a'motion and Commissioner
Sharon Langford seconded the mo-
tion, before a unanimous vote was
made approving a commitment to the
proposed facility.

ers that the Suwannee River Eco-

Trenton High School recognizes area Veterans

High school teacher/veteran speaks to students during Veterans Day service on Friday

ByAnna Wild and Carrie A. Mizell
On Friday, Nov. 9 Trenton High
School honored area veterans by
hosting a Veterans Day program for
students, which included a speech by
a TMS seventh grade social studies
teacher who served 22 years in the
Navy before retiring last year.
Lt. John Price, U. S. Navy retired,
was among several area veterans who
attended 'the crowded service last
A former Trenton High School
student, Price moved from Trenton
to Fort Meade, Fla. just eight weeks
before his Class of 1984 graduated
from Trenton High School.
"I knew I wanted to return to Gil-
christ County and raise my children
here one da\." Price said. "Military
life is hard on a family."
After retiring in September 2006,
Price. his '.% ife Di. Heather Price and
their four children ended their suc-
cession of moves from bases in Jack-
sonville, San Francisco, California,
Newport, Rhode Island and various
ships that Price was stationed on, in-
cluding the USS Gettysburg and the
USS Excel. The family built a home
on the north end of Gilchrist County
and he soon began teaching at Tren-
ton Middle School.
"We love being back in Gilchrist
County, it has changed a lot. There
are more homes in the country than
there used to be, but it is still the
small town I remember," Price said.
During his speech to Trenton stu-
dents, Price said, "We observe Vet-

Thank you to John and Paulette Vickers of Trenton for reveling in the
Thanksgiving holiday by decorating your front yard with fall foliage.

Just Southern
I am so excited I can hardly stand
it, my favorite holiday is just around
the comer. Wouldn't you know it..;I
would love the biggest food holiday
the very best. Granted, Christmas
which celebrates the birth of Christ is
without any doubt the most important
holiday of all. But when it comes to
cooking and eating how can you resist
Thanksgiving. Juicy turkey, dressing,
giblet gravy, congealed cranberry
salad, fresh string beans, pumpkin
pie; oh,.better yet, how about pecan
pie, this holiday was made for me.
Seriously, how blessed are we. Our
nation is 231 years old, and for the
most part we all enjoy way more
than we really need. We have been
blessed, blessed and blessed some
more, If those pilgrims in 1621 could
have a three day celebration we sure-
ly should set aside one entire day,
once a year, to thank the good Lord
for His blessings.
So girls, lets give our menus a little
thought and make out our two page
shopping list. Because the big day
is fast approaching and those turkey
birds are just a calling our names.
The recipes that follow are on the
simpler side. After all Thanksgiving
dinner doesn't have to be compli-
cated to be good. A diabetic pumpkin
pie has been included in this year's
recipe collection because we realize
that more and more people are find-
ing out they are-diabetic,

Letter to the Editor
I do not feel committed to support
anything sponsored by Sheriff David

personal reasons. I share this opinion
with many persons living in this area

have owned property in Wilcox over
40 years and this has been my home
for more than 35 years.
Approximately two years ago I
met with the Gilchrist County Com-

I live. It was unanimously passed

personally by Sheriff Turner who

Bell proudly boasts about its golf
cart ordinance and a golf cart cross-

areas without ordinances. Exercis-
ing control and stopping people from
using their golf carts does not seem
high priority for deputies in. these ar-

In my area, I have been stopped,
reprimanded, and was threatened
with a written citation. My road is
utilized by bicycles, horses, tractors,
and school buses, just like the roads
in other areas that operate golf carts.

Letter to the Editor
This Thanksgiving, as we gather
with family and friends to count
our blessings, let's give thanks 'for
the bounty we enjoy not just on this,
holiday, but every day. The safe,'
plentiful food that is available to us,
and the products used to produce
the clothing, housing, medicines,
fuel. and other products we use on
a daily basis, didn't just appear in a
store. They got there thanks to a tre-
mendous partnership of farmers and
ranchers, processors, brokers, truck-
ers, shippers, advertisers, wholesal-
ers, and retailers.-
On the seven days leading to and
including Thanksgiving Day,-Farm-
City Week is celebrated nationwide.
What are we celebrating? The Amer-
ican economy is strong thanks to the,
interdependence of farms and cities.
As the president of the Gilchrist
County. Farm Bureau, I would like
to encourage local residents to take
a moment this holiday season to ap-
preciate the partnership that makes
our food supply safe, affordable, and'
abundant. Rural and urban residents

duce the products, consume the prod-
ucts, and make them readily avail-
able through an efficient production.

The Law Of Marriage
(Kent Heaton)

"But for Adam there was not found a helper
comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep
sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of
his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib
which the LORD God had taken from man He made into
a woman, and He brought her to the man.." (Genesis
From the blessing of Eden until now, man has 'been
given the highest blessing of all creatures. The
companionship of woman is the crowning blessing God
bestowed on the new world. The Son of God reflected
upon this creation while in the flesh, "He who made them
at the beginning made them male and female, and said,
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one
flesh? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together, let not man
separate." (Matthew 19:4-6)
Declared before all men, the man and the woman were
joined together by the bonds of God. It was not the
creation of God that man and woman should leave one
another. Rather, they were to cleave unto one another and
become one. This union was one of commitment and
desire for each other. The relationship of the man and the
woman is established in Heaven by the authority of God.
For a lifetime they were to share their lives. For a lifetime
they were to be to one another as one, For a lifetime they
were to be bond by the vow made before His throne. "For
the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her
husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she
is released from the law of her husband." (Romans 7:2)
The law of marriage was established by God in the

garden of Eden. All men are subject to that law as we are
to the laws of creation. The law of marriage is established
by. the authority of God for a lifetime commitment.
Regardless of man's changing the law, it stands forever by
the power of God. When asked why divorce had been
granted previously, Jesus replied, "Moses, because of the
hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your
wives, but from the beginning it Was not so." (Matthew
.19:8) .
The law of marriage,still stands in its completeness and
finality before God. "From the beginning it was not so"
shows that God's law was unchanged even when Jesus was
on the earth. The Son of God affirms the authority of
marriage to be one man for one woman for life! He
further elaborates in Matthew 19 that if anyone divorces
for any reason other than sexual immorality, and marries
another, adultery is committed. The person who marries
this person has also committed adultery. Can one break
the law of marriage for any cause? God established His
law to be for life. Man cannot change that law -
"Therefore what God has joined together, let no man
The law of marriage is a wonderful law. It brings true
happiness to a strife torn world of divorce and abuse. The
reason marriages are failing today is not because of the
failing of the law. The reason marriages are failing today
is because of the lack for concern to the law God
established in the beginning, revealed in His Word. "For
the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce."
Malachi 2:16 "Marriage is honorable among all, and the
bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will
judge." Hebrews 13:4.

Bell improves record to 8-2 after senior night

victory over Bronson

By Joel Elliott
Bell would celebrate its senior
night by playing against Bronson
last Friday night. The Bulldog play-
ers were excited to get a chance to
improve their record to 8-2, and it
showed as the players were jumping
around and ushering the crowd into
the game even before the opening
Bell would receive the ball to open
the game, and the drive started quick-
ly. Bell would drive down the field
and Fowler would run to the 10-yard
line before Bell would turn it over on
downs. When Bronson received the
ball, they utilized their huge front five
to drive down the field. They would
score on a circus catch by Jeremiah
Brown, who would run twenty-one
yards for a score. Bronson would
try to get a deflection with the onside
kick, but Ty Smith would pounce
on it to end that notion. Bell would
complete a long pass as the first quar-
ter ended.
To start the second quarter, Justin

Fowler would find a wide open Lee
Carlisle for a touchdown to tie the
score at 7-7. Both teams gave the
ball back to each other for a large
portion of the second period, but, the
Bulldogs defense wouldn't play to
the best of their ability, and they gave
up a touchdown to Rodolfo Contreras
with twenty-four seconds left in the
quarter. The Bulldogs would go into
halftime trailing Branford 14-7.
The Bulldog offense would play
great in the third quarter, as they
added fourteen points to the score as
Robert Hankins caught a touchdown
pass and Lee Carlisle would run
in from five yards out. C.J. Harris
would convert a. two-point conver-
sion to make the lead even larger.
With the score 21-7, it was time to
play keep away. The Bulldogs offense
churned up. yards and mainly kept
the ball on the ground in the fourth
quarter. The offensive line made. up
for their size disadvantage by using
smarts and quick feet to keep the Ea-
gles defense off the football. Finally,

with twenty four seconds left to play,
Bell added a security touchdown
when Justin Fowler would find Rob-
ert Hankins for a touchdown, their
second hookup of the night. Time
expired, and the game was over. The
seniors had a win on senior night,
and the Bell Bulldogs had their bowl
game to look forward to the follow-
ing Thursday.
Lee Carlisle had a great day on of-
fense and defense. At the running
back position, he gained 166 yards on
18 carries, an astounding 9.2 yards
per carry. As the outside linebacker,
he would contribute eight tackles.
Mitchell Cannon would tally seven
tackles, including two for a loss. Jus-
tin Fowler completed 6 of 16 passes
for 75 yards and three touchdowns.
Currently, Fowler's touchdown to
interception ratio is 14 to 3, an ex-
tremely respectable statistic.
The Bulldogs play their postseason
bowl game against Aucilla Christian
Academy on Thursday night in Bell.
Kickoff is set for 7:30.

winning essays.
Third place went to Will George; he received $250. Second place went
to Sarah Bussard; she received $500. The winning essay was submitted by
Travis Sessions and he won $1,250.00.

First Place Winner
Travis Sessions
11th Grade, Trenton High School
There are many ways people honor
veterans, some go to parades, and
others wear all red, white, and blue,
while some volunteer to help veter-
ans through their everyday tasks. I
believe every person who has served
in America's armed forces deserves
to be honored and appreciated full
heartedly. My family has a history of
service men and women, including
my grandmother and grandfather who
both served their country through the
armed forces, my grandfather served
in the army as an intelligence agent,
and my grandmother who was in
the navy served as a map maker. In
fact my grandmother helped make
the map the pilots used when they
bombed Hiroshima. I'm very proud
of both of my grandparents for their
sacrifices and their loyalty of service
they gave to this country.
What exactly are veterans? Well
to define a veteran requires quite a
list, First and foremost veterans are
heroes, they are patriotic, and they
are sacrificing, killing g to give up
their lives for the protection of their
fellow country men. Veterans are a
role model for today's youth. Veter-
ans have seen and done things you
and I can only dream about, whether
it's fighting abroad in unimaginable
conditions, or forming bonds through
battle with men they know little about
but consider closer than a brother.
Veterans are the epitome of the "in-
domitable American spirit," and they
deserve our utmost respect.
'Veterans are very important to this
country; in fact, they should be treat-

ed as national heroes. Now you may
be asking, what should I do to honor
veterans? I believe the best way to
show your appreciation to these men
and women is to exercise the rights
that they risked their-lives to protect.
For instance, everyone should vote,
this right is taken for granted by so
many Americans, and it is one of the
most valuable rights that we possess.
Look at countries where people have,
no vote, often times the majority is
unheard, and therefore the common
people are oppressed. Remember
that veterans helped protect rights
such as this and without them we
could've lost our rights to the multi-
tude of people who want to take them
away. We can't take the rights which
they have afforded us for granted. So
therefore the best thing you can do to
honor veterans is to use the freedoms
for.which they fought for.
Many people take our veterans
for granted, or simply choose to let
them fade away like forgotten memo-
ries of a long past era. This is such a
shame, especially when you consider
the stories and experiences that they
can share if only people would listen.
Our veterans are part of an anmazin'i
generation, these people are a spot-
light in American history and they
have much wisdom to offer today's
youth. Simply listening to these fas-
cinating people' and spending a little
bit of time with them is one of the,
best and often most neglected ways
to honor our veterans. My grand fa-
ther used. to tell me the most amaz-
ing stories, he was a photographer in
World War 2, and he told me how he
would fly over a potential bomb site
and" photograph it so the bomber pi-
lots could know their targets. He then
would fly over after the bomb had

been dropped and take more pictures
for his reports. We still have some of
his old pictures and they're amazing.
It's really cool to see before and af-
ter pictures of a bridge that was de-
stroyed, or him standing by his old
plane. I loved my grandpa and I miss
his stories, I think he liked telling me
those stories as much as I liked hear-
ing them. Many people do not realize
that although veterans have seen and
done much they still yearn for com-
panionship and sincere interest in
their lives, and experiences just like
everyone else. One thing you can do
this Veterans Day is go visit a vet-
eran, learn about them, if you have
a veteran in your family ask them
about their experiences, I guarantee
it will be time well spent.

Our Veteran's have given so much
for us and this wonderful country.
They've dedicated their time, their
service, and more importantly, their
lives towards the freedom of Ameri-
cans and the freedom of those in other
countries. In appreciation for all that
they've done, I honor them by keep-
ing them and our active troops in my
prayers every night, I honor them ev-
ery Memorial Day, and I help support
our men and women in war through
Every night, before I go to bed, I
pray for our country and our military
personnel, whether they are veterans
or active members. I thank God for
them and for their dedication to our
country. I pray for their safety and
their safe return. Without their loy-
alty, America would not be the free
country that it is today. Veterans have
given so much for this nation and the
least I can do for them is pray and
give thanks for them every day. I also
pray for our troops who will be the.
veterans of our future. Our men and
women fighting overseas need our
continual love and support, and the
best way to give that is through our
One of the most important dates in
my calendar is May 30th. This is our
country's set day to honor those who
have given to our nation through our
military. On this day I remember our
veterans. Every year on Memorial
Day you can find my family and me
honoring our veterans. Every year my
family cooks out at our local spring's
park and we celebrate this, worthy day.
Usually all of my aunts, uncles, cous-
ins, and grandparents, come. What
makes this day even more special to
me is the time that I get to pend :. ith
my cousin, Michael, who is a veteran
of the current war in the Middle East.
He has completed two tours of duty
and he makes me so proud by all that
he has done for this country. It makes
the meaning of this day all the more
special to me when I know that I am
celebrating a day for someone who
is close and dear to me. Celebrating
Memorial Day is one of the most
meaningful ways I honor veterans.
When my cousin was overseas, I
wrote to him regularly arid sent to
him pictures and letters children had

drawn for him from the daycare that I
work at. It made him so delighted to
know of all the support he had back
home. He took the pictures and letters
the children had made for him and he
passed them around to the rest of the
guys he was stationed with. He wrote
back saying how precious the pic-
tures and letters were to him and the
other guys, and how loved and sup-
ported they felt. This really touched
my heart and I continue to send pic-
tures that I've had the children draw
to our soldiers in war. It means a lot
to them and its just one of the many
things I do to honor our veterans and
current soldiers.
Veterans honor the dead by helping
the living, and that is my goal when
I'm honoring my veterans. Praying
for our veterans and our troops, cel-
ebrating Memorial Day, and writing
letters to our troops are the best ways
I know of to honor those who have
given their lives for us. We can never
fully repay to a veteran what he has
given to us and it is just one of the
many reasons to honor these special
people. Veterans deserve the honor
and respect of this country and these
are just some of the ways that I'm
giving it to them.

Just think storming the beaches on
D-day, fighting through the steamy
jungles of Korea and Vietnam, and
trekking through the hot deserts
of the Middle East and then com-
ing home to find that no one in the
U.S. even acknowledges what you
did or how you did it. Fighting and
losing fellow soldiers along the way-
for the freedoms that are being taken
for granted. This is a soldier's worst
nightmare, to come home and find all
that you fought for is beirig taken for
granted and that not too many Ameri-
cans even know what was done for
those freedoms. I belie'.e that it is
every American's job to take part in
honoring our veterans through many
different things, not just by taking a
day out of the year to get out of work
or school and heading to the beach to
enjoy the day without thinking about
what was done for our freedoms but
by doing something that will make a
lasting impression on veterans. To
show them that we do care and ap-
preciate what they have done for this
One way that I honor American
veterans is to share time with my
grandfather, who fought in-the navy
'towards the end ofWWll. I think hl,'
1ha one oftlhie tn'st imp,.''rin( jobs.
which is not always thought of, but
was the way that all the soldiers got
back to their families; he was sta-
tioned on the USS Saratoga ferrying
troops back to the U.S. Even though
he did not do any of the fighting, I be-
lieve that it was an important job due
to the fact that he was part of bring-
ing countless troops back home. Just
spending time with them and telling
them that you appreciated the things
they did for the country is a good
way of honoring veterans. It reminds
them of the whole reason that they
fought in the first place. It shows
them that the people the\ kno"\ and
love, do see what they did and are
grateful for it.
I also honor my grandfather by
listening to the stories that he tells.
For some reason, I think that this
should be done so that in the future,
the next generation of Americans
will know of ithe struggles that took
place to keep our country safe and
ensure that we had freedom. One of
the most recounted stories that my
grandfather tells me is if the time he
brought back American GI's that had
not gotten their "sea legs" back yet.
So, the sailors always remember see-
ing some of the most battle-harden
soldiers lying in their bunks sick to
their stomachs. So, by recounting
stories such as these and many oth-
ers that my grandfather and other vet-
erans have told me, I not only gain
more respect in understanding what
they went through but I will someday
recount these stories to future genera-
tions, so for countless years we will
know the struggles it took to ensure
our freedom.
But above all, I think the most
important way for me and others to
honor the veterans is to pray for those
that have fought in past wars and are
still fighting in the current war, ask
God to give them strength and cour-
age and protection for each day. Ask-
ing God to bless them and to let them
know that what they have done will
not be unacknowledged.
In conclusion, I think that we need

to honor veterans that have returned
and some that have paid the ultimate
price with their lives to keep this
country free by praying, letting them
know that we do appreciate what they
have done for us and by understand-
ing what each one has sacrificed, by
doing this, it will be easier for future
generations to also pay their respects
for the veterans that have returned
and those that have not by honoring
them with their thoughts and prayers.
All Americans pledge allegiance, a
select few show it.
Duty, Honor, Country. Those three
hallowed words reverently dictate
what you ought to be.

Friends of the Lower
Suwannee and Cedar
Keys National Wildlife
The Friends of the Lower Suwan-
nee and Cedar Keys National Wild-
life Refuge are kicking off their pub-
lic programs for 2007 to 2008, this
Saturday, November 17th at 10:30
a.m. at the Cedar Key Library.
State archeologist, Jim Dunbar,
will present a program on the an-
cient mysteries of how human life
was affected by Florida's changing
shoreline and inland water table. As
the glaciers retreated, Florida's envi-
ronment and landscape dramatically
changed. Jim will describe how this
affected Paleo-Indian cultures dat-
ing back some 14,500 years before
Europeans arrived. He will give par-
ticular coverage to the pre-historical
development of the Big Bend and
Suwannee River Basin. Some of his
past research has actually been at
sites located underwater in the Gulf
of Mexico.
Come join us. Bring the whole
family and a friend. Learn more
about the Friends' activities as you
enjoy refreshments. Contact Jay
Bushnell for more information at
352- 493-1807.'

Hebrews 11:1
When you accept Jesus Christ as
your savior, you make a commit-

You commit your life to something
you cannot see or feel, but you have
hope that drives lost men and women
to God because everyone needs to
have hope for something greater that
we can see here on earth. Hope is a
powerful force for a believer. Having
faith is being assured of your hope;
not simply crossing your fingers and
thinking hopeful thoughts. Hope in
Christ provides courage and strength
to help someone start a new life with
confidence and assurance. Keep your
hope in God strong today and rest in

4-Pets Sake

As winter is inching its way into our lives, we need to consider our pets
health, warmth, and comfort as well as our own. Check your pets shelters for
holes that should be patched to keep. out the wind and rain.
Puppies and shorthaired breeds such as dachshunds are more prone to cold
related problems like hypothermia (uncontrolled shivering); and should be
placed in a warm environment. Aging dogs and those with arthritis require
warmth because that soothes their achy joints. Put yourself in their position.
How would you like to be leftin the cold and rain?,
Royal Riding Academy is having a benefit yard sale Saturday, Novem-
ber 24th at the Gainesville,Equestrian Center in Newberry. They will have
a children's art contest----deadline is Nov. 20th. For more information call
352-463-0047 and log onto www.royalridingacademy.org
We were thinking of a way to celebrate the 500th spay or neuter performed
through our program. It was decided that the pet would receive a bag of food
and the pet parent is entitled to a $15 certificate for the Lighthouse. Remem-
ber our programs are available to the general public of any county.
Until next time be happy just for the love of them. Contact us at 386-935-

Let us deal with the importance of YOUR VOTE. In most cases when just 2 folks are
running for the same office, YOUR VOTE counts for 3. Allow me to explain. Someone
VOTES for Mr./Mrs. X, someone VOTES for Mr./Mrs. Y, it then takes a 3rd someone to
break the tie. I hope that now you can see the importance of YOUR VOTE.
In the case of the Mayor's race this year with 3 contenders seeking the same office and the
importance of YOUR VOTE, the count then jumps to (4) Remember this number (4) Make
a decision to VOTE either in person at the Trenton City Hall or by absentee ballot, and make
YOUR VOTE count.

(Continued from the November 8,
2007 edition)
I have fond memories of my child-
hood in Trenton and especially the
good men and women that worked
tirelessly to make it a habitable place
to live. Like any other southern
towns in the segregated South of the
1940s and 1950s, Trenton had "the
good, the bad, and the ugly." Among
"the good" were men like Dr. Ed Q.
May, Cecil Rowell, Willis White,
Frank Ellis, Lee Roberts, Jesse Ar-
rington, Benjamin Denny, Leonard
Bill Wilbert, Addy Jones, Sylvester
Davis, Sr., Odell Mikell, and John
Morris. Those -whom I consider as
"the bad and the ugly," their names
are not worthy of print.
In 1948, at the age of 10, I began
working for the late Dr. Ed Q. May.

Dr. May and his wife, Gaynell, were
kind-hearted, gentle people. I was
paid $5.00 a week when school was
in session and $10.00 a week when
school was out for the summer. They
gave me my first wrist watch. I
worked for Dr. May until he retired
and sold the drug store. At age 14,
the late Mrs. Bess (Bessie) Rowell,
Postmaster at the Trenton Post Of-
fice, hired me to work as a custodian.
Mrs. Bessie and her husband, the late
Cecil Rowell were good people. Mr.
Cecil owned the Ford Dealership,
Rowell Motors. Mrs. Cecil employed
2 black automotive mechanics. This
was unheard of in the South in the
1940s because some white people
did not want black mechanics work-
ing on their automobiles. I worked at
the Post Office until I graduated from

My Life
by Rufus J. Washington

high school. In spite of the fact that
I steered clear of trouble, I'm con-
vinced that in both cases I was hired
because of the integrity of my mother
and father. They were two admirable
and dignified people; well respected
in the black and white community.
Displaying exemplary character, they
personified Christianity.
Except for farming, jobs in Tren-
ton were virtually non-existent for
African Americans. So, after gradu-
ating from high school on May 25,
1956, I moved to St. Petersburg. I
performed sundry jobs, including but
not limited to dish washing, land-
scaping, and driving a dump truck. I
don't know why, but trucking was an
aspiration. My last job was stacking
cement (split-face) blocks. Growing
weary of dead-end jobs, I enlisted in
the United States Marine Corps on
November 7, 1956. I've made many
decisions over the years, but enlist-
ing in the Marine Corps, and marry-
ing Pearl, are the two of the best ever.
Being a Marine is an honorable pro-
fession and I'm eternally grateful to
the Marine Corps for the opportunity
to enlist and serve my country for 20
years. I retired on December 1, 1976
with the rank of Captain.
Even though I'd graduated from
high school and had a diploma, I
could barely read and write. My
classmates (seven of us) are survi-
vors of a "dark period" in America's
history. That I did not have a high
school education was revealed to me
upon graduating from boot camp and
ascertaining that my General Classi-
fication Test (GCT) scores were well
below average. In fact, the aggregate
score was so low, I still wonder how
I ever passed the Armed Service Vo-
cational Aptitude Batter (ASVAB)
Test. Thus, while my well-educated
peers were enjoying their "off duty"
time, I spent mine reading and study-
ing, in the Base Library. Moreover, I
applied for and completed every Cor-
respondence Course that the Marine
Corps offered in my Military Occu-
pational Speciality (MOS). By 1966,
ten years after graduating from high
school, I'd gained a twelfth grade
reading level and improved my GCT
In 1978, twenty-two years after
graduating from high school, I grad-
uated from East Carolina University,
Greenville, NC, with a Bachelor of
Science Social Work (BSSW) Degree
with a GPA of 3.528. I'm completely
sold-out on the concepts of persever-
ance and hard work. There is abso-
lutely no substitute for either.
My MOS was Motor Transport
(trucking). In 1957, my first job as-
signment was Motor Vehicle Opera-
tor (Jeep Driver) for the Command-
ing Officer, Alpha Co'mpanii, 3rd
Engineer Battalion, 3id NIpiri ne Divi-
sion, Okinawa, Japan. The best job I
ever had. I kept my uniform spiffy,
and I shined my jeep with Simoniz
wax. I loved every minute of it. But
sooner or later all good things must
end. My next job in Okinawa was as
a 5-ton dump truck driver.
In, 1963, I was transferred to Ha-
waii. I was attached to the 4th Ma-
rine Regiment, 1st Marine Brigade..
In 19651 deployed with Headquarters
Company, 4th Marines and 3rd battal-
ion, 3rd Marines engaged in the first
major battle of the war in Vietnam,
code-named "Operation Starlite."
Near the end of 1965 I was trans-
ferred to the 2nd Marine Air Wing,
Cherry Point, NC. I'd been promoted
to Sergeant and was assigned as Au-
tomotive Mechanic, Section Leader.
At Cherry Point I attended several
Automotive Technician Schools and
was selected to attend Drill Instructor
School. In January, 1966,1 I attended
a "Factory School" in Dallas, Texas.
Albeit, I enjoyed life as a Marine,
working in my MOS and serving
my country; the most exciting be-
ing a Drill Instructor. Drill Instruc-
tor duty is unquestionably one of the
most challenging and demanding to
which a Marine can be assigned.. At
the same time, it is also one of the
most gratifying and rewarding du-
ties which a Marine can perform. A
truism that was self-evident in June
of this year. My first Aviation Of-
ficer Candidate Class (AOC) 11/67,
invited Pearl arid I to participate in
their 40th anniversary reunion. It
was comforting to hear them make
written comments such as: "To the
man that set the corner keystone of
an Officer and a Gentleman for life;"
"Thanks for making a difference in

my life;" "You were the very best;"
"You were an inspiration;" "Thank
you for your guidance;" "I will never
forget you;" "You will never know
how great an influence you've had
on my life." Several of them would
make a career of the United States
Navy, while others would separate
after their obligation and begin flying
for such companies as Continental
Air Lines and FEDEX. The re-union
was a celebration we will always re-
In 1966, the selection process for
Drill Instructor School was strenu-
ous. By the way, I did not volunteer
for the Drill Instructor School, I was
nominated (had no choice) and hated
the thought of it. Paris Island, South
Carolina (PI), is where my life as a
Marine began 10 years earlier. At
the time of the selection, my memory
of life at PI was less than pleasant.
Yet, as always, I accepted the as-
signment, determined to do my best.
Drill Instructor Class 1-67 began in
July 1966 and graduated on Septem-
ber 23, 1966. One hundred.sixty
five (165) students started the class,
thirty-two (32) graduated. Two days
before graduation, I was interviewed
by Captain G.W. Keiser, Director,
DI School, PI. He said to me,"the
Military Department, Naval Aviation
Officer Candidate School, Naval Air
Station, Pensacola, FL., is requesting
four Staff NCOs that're graduating in
the top 10% .of the class, to fill billets
as DIs." Staff NCOs are Staff Ser-
geants (E6) through Sergeant Major
and/or Master Gunnery Sergeants
(E9). There were plenty of Staff
NCOs graduating in the class,but not
in the top 10%. I was a Sergeant (E5),
graduating 4th place. Thus, the first
through the fourth place graduates
were transferred to NAS Pensacola.
This was the, watershed of my career.
We were a. team of 2 Gunnery
Sergeants (white); 1 Staff Sergeant
(black); 1 Sergeant (black). Even
though the Armed Forces were inte-
grated in 1948, the Staff Sergeant and
I were the first Black Marines ever
assigned to the Naval Aviation Offi-
cer Candidate School as DIs.
The orders directed that I report
to the Commanding Officer, Marine
Aviation Detachment, Naval Air Sta-
tion, Pensacola, not later than Octo-
ber 17, 1966. Upon reporting I was
assigned to the Indoctrination Battal-
ion. Sometime in early 1967 I was
transferred to the 3rd Marine Battal-
ion where I remained until June 1969.
, Now for a bit of trivia: the Command-
ing Officer, Marine Detachment, was
the late Colonel Donald Conroy.
Never heard of him? Colonel Conroy
is "The Great Santini." In the movie,
"The Great Santini," Robert Duvall
played therole of;5'rihe Great San- '
'tirni,' Colonel'Conroy is the father oft
Pat Conroy, the prolific writer of such
novels as "The Prince of Tides" and
"The Lords of Discipline." .
The Drill Instructor is responsible
for training and preparing college
graduates for the rigor of Naval Flight
Training and to become an Officer and
a Gentleman. The military portion of
their training schedule included, but
.not limited to: Close order drill with
the Ml rifle, physical fitness includ-
ing obstacle course, equipment and
room inspections, military order and
discipline, preparation of and wear-
ing the military uniform, military
courtesy, parade ceremonies, and the
Manual of Sword.
There have been many changes
in the Navy and the Marine Corps
since I left Pensacola in 1969. There
were no women in any of the classes
and few African Americans. Of the
15 classes I trained, there were only
two. However, there were some in
other classes. Also, there were no
African American Officers in the
Aviation Officer Candidate School or
NAS Pensacola that I recall seeing.
The same for women officers. All
that has changed; as it should have.
In fact, the Commanding Officer, Of-
ficer Training Command Pensacola,
Officer Candidate School, Naval
Air Station, Pensacola. is a black
male, with the rank of Commander.
Moreover, the Director of Training is
a black female, with the rank of Lt.
Commander. It should be noted that
the Officer Training Command, Of-
ficer Candidate School is relocating
to Newport, Rhode Island, in Sep-
tember 2007. The AOCs that went
through Pensacola during my tenure,
are the product of Good Order and
Discipline. Conspicuously displayed
above every portal were signs with
the caption: "I will not lie cheat or
steal nor will I tolerate it from those
among me." I was aghast when I dis-
covered that the signs were removed
years ago. It's obligatory that Navy
and Marine Corps Officers be highly
reliable and dependable in any situ-

I'm absolutely convinced that
companies like FEDEX owe much
of their success to the Naval Avia-
tors that dared endure Aviation Of-
ficer Candidate School' under the di-
rectorial of Marine Corps DIs. I'm
honored to have had the opportunity
to train some of this country's finest
and brightest. These are extraordi-
nary men. As I think about it, it's
no secret why the Navy elects to use
Marine DIs to train its Officer Can-
didates. Marines are this country's
premier fighting force. Furthermore,
Marines epitomize spirit de corps
and are imbued with such core values
as: brotherhood, persistence, pride,
respect, discipline, loyalty and cour-
age. These core values have defined
Marines since November 10, 1775.
These same core values, coupled
with inconceivable growth potential,
served me well .during my career.
,When my Marine Corps career end-
ed, they were an ever present guide
for me as a manager in the highly.
competitive small package delivery
As a DI, I took personal interest in
every AOC, endeavoring to instill in
them a strong sense of responsibility
to their service and country. I also
taught them respect, integrity, hon-.
esty, responsibility, accountability,
courage, tact, and decisiveness. I set
high standards for myself and those
that I trained. Likewise, they likely
heard me used the concept "attention
to detail" a thousand times. Though
I was a disciplinarian and tactician, I
trained with compassion, infusing a
sense of humor (not clowning), when
appropriate. I used many idioms.
In 1968, I was selected as the Out-
standing Enlisted Man, Naval Avia-
tion Officer Candidate School. In
June 1969, I was awarded the Navy
Achievement Medal for: superior per-
formance of duty as a Drill Instructor,
October 17, 1966 to June 17, 1969. A,
quote from the citation: "Displaying
exceptional skill and resourcefulness,
he contributed directly to the superb
quality and professionalism of over
500 Aviation Officer Candidates who
came under his direct tutelage. His
sound judgment, competitive spirit
and continual striving for perfection
in himself were highly infectious and
instrumental in his profound ability to
control, mold and develop candidates
into excellent military officers."
My tour of duty ended in June 1969,
and I was enjoined to the 3rd Marine
Air Wing, Japan. I was assigned to
the 3rd Marine Air Control Squadron-
8 (MACS-8), Okinawa, Japan. After
rejuvenating the moribund Motor
Transport Section from the Inspector
General's (IG), Combat Readiness ;
Grade of Unsatisfactory,. to Note-
,. orth,, the late Colonel G.G. 'Long,
Commanding Officer, recommended
me for the Warrant Officer Program.
It was superlative application. Colo-
nel Long was impressed with me, and
what. I had done. I was a Gunnery
Sergeant, filling a First Lieutenant's
billet. In addition to my responsibil-
ity as Motor Transport Chief, I was
also the Non Commissioned. Officer

in Charge (NCOIC), of MACS-8,
Non Commissioned Officer (NCO)
At the end of my "tour of duty" I
was presented a Meritorious Mast,for
Outstanding Performance of Duty.
The award asserts: "your outstanding
performance, daily personal example
of leadership, and sense of profes-
sional responsibility are a credit to
yourself, the Marine Corps, and the
United States Naval Service."
I was selected for the Warrant Of-
ficer Program in 1970. In 1970, there
were a total of 55 Warrant Officer
Candidates selected by the Marine
Corps Selection Board out of 5,000
applications. Warrant Officer Can-
didate Class 11 (WOCC-11) started
the six week course at Marine Corps
Base, Quantico, Virginia, on Janu-
ary 3, 1971. Upon completion of
the rigorous course, I was commis-
sioned a Warrant Officer-1 (W-l).
Graduating in first place, I received
the Marjorie Meriwether Post Award
of the National Society, Daughters of
the American Colonists. The award
was presented by Mrs. Richard W.
Buxton, National Vice Chairman for
National Awards. The late LtGeneral
Raymond G. Davis, Commanding
General, Marine Corps Education
Command, Quantico, Virginia, and
Korean War, Medal of Honor Winner,
pinned the bar on my left shoulder;
Pearline pinned the right. General
Davis would go on to earn a 4th star
and serve as Assistant Commandant
of the Marine Corps before retiring.
The ceremony was the culmination
of 15 years of self-sacrificing.
In addition to being a Motor Trans-
port Officer, in 1973, I attended the
Army Chemical and Ordinance
School, Aberdeen, Maryland. After
completing the course, I was both a
Motor Transport Officer and The Nu-
clear Biological Chemical Warfare
Officer (NBC); 8th Motor transport
Battalion, 2nd Force Service Support
Group, Camp Le Jeune, North Caro-
lina. I would serve as both Motor
Transport Officer and NBC Officer
until I retired

Buying a home is a
great way to build
long-term wealth.
There are some other
important dividends, too.
If you have been waiting for the
right time to buy a home, you
should know the facts about
homeownership., Right now,
interest rates are still at historic
lows, conventional financing is
available and FHA-insured
mortgage applications are on the
rise. The more you know, the
more you'll realize it's a decision
you shouldn't postpone any longer.
On average, the value of a home
nearly doubles every 10 years.
That is a return most
investments can't match. During
the past three decades, home
values have increased on average
of 6.6% per year. And because
most buyers invest only a small
part of their home's total value in a
down payment, their return on that
initial investment is much greater,
thanks to the power of leverage.
The average homeowner today
has 36 times the wealth of the
average renter.
Homeownership is key to climbing
up the economic ladder. When you
own a home, you are essentially
paying yourself and building up
equity. Not to mention the tax
deductions only owners can claim,
such as property taxes and
mortgage interest.
Sixty percent of the average
homeowner's wealth is their
home's equity.
Very few people look back
and regret their decision to
purchase a home.. Historically
speaking, homeowners that are in it
for the long haul will build equity. In
fact, home equity is the largest
single source. of household wealth
for most Americans. Of course, a
home is much more than a way to
accumulate wealth. It's a place to
enjoy your lifestyle and your loved
ones. What other investment can
claim that?
The best way to evaluate your
situation and options is to contact a
Realtor--a member of the national
and your local association of
Realtors. They can provide solid
advice on local market conditions
and can help you find the home you
have always wanted. Every market
is different. Contact
Deen Lancaster Realty, Inc.

that knows your local
Real Estate Market.

Active fire season predicted for spring 2008

By Carrie A. Mizell
Last week Division of Forestry of-,
ficials asked residents of north cen-
tral Florida to use extreme caution
while burning outside because of dry
conditions, heavy winds and low hu-
midity which increased the chance
for wildfires.
As of Monday morning conditions
had improved throughout North Flor-
ida, according to Lamar Loven, duty

officer with the Florida Division of
"We are only allowing pile burns
with heavy equipment onsite," Loven
said. "No acreage bums are being
permitted at this time."
Hurricane season will end on No-
vember 30 and although the impacts
this year have been minor, residents
still need to be prepared for any late
season storms that may develop,

Deborah Hanley, fire-weather fore-
caster, explained. The developing La
Nifia in the Pacific Ocean should keep
conditions drier than normal through
the winter season and increase dry-
ness across the state leading to high
potential for another active fire sea-
son in the spring.
"Florida entered 2007 with a 15 to
20 inch rain deficit. We had extreme
fire conditions followed by some
rainfall over the summer. Currently,
we are experiencing a drier than nor-
mal fall," Ludie Ehlers, wildfire miti-
gation specialist for the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry said. "In Gilchrist
County I know folks burn outside all
the time. I would urge them to use ex-
treme caution while burning because
fires will spread rapidly as dry as it
Normal rainfall is expected during
the summer months of 2008, accord-
ing to Hanley.

THS recognizes area veterans

(Continued from Page 1)
- or cease fire that began on the
11th hour of the llth day of the llth
month. It is not the anniversary of a
great battle or the beginning of a war,
but the day when a war ended and our
nation was again at peace."
'"Ever since the armistice this has
been a day to remember our debt to
all who have worn the uniform of
the United States and not break the
faith for those who died on Flanders
Field," Price said. "'There are more
than 23 million Americans that wear
the proud, title of veteran. Our great
state of Florida is home to almost 2
million veterans."
"Many of you have family mem-
bers that are veterans: grandfathers,
fathers, uncles, aunts, mothers,
brothers and sisters. Mrs. Colleen
Roberson's grandfather was a survi-
vor of the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor. Mr. Bachle's father, who
taught me and many others nath here
at Trenton High School, served in the
United States Navy during Vietnam.
And some of you have spent months
worrying about loved ones serving
our nation in some lonely 'corner of

the world," Price said. "Mrs. Reed's
son, Stephen, recently volunteered
to serve a tour of duty in Iraq. He
leaves later this month and his first
day in-country will be Thanksgiving,
I know she will spend many sleep-,
less nights worrying about him. But
it says something about her and her
husband to raise a son who is willing
to put his life on the line to protect his
country and our way of life. One day
many others here will also raise sons
and daughters who will answer their
nations call to duty. Veterans Day is
also a time to remember those who,
gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense
of their country ... We see soldiers
in our mind as old and wise. We see
them as something like the Founding
Fathers, grave and gray haired. But
most of them were just boys when
they died, and they gave up two lives
- the one they were living and the
one they would have lived. When
they died, they gave up their chance
to be husbands and fathers and grand-
fathers. They gave up their chance to
be revered old men. They gave up
e\er thing for our country, for us,
And all we can do is remember."
