A splendid season to scallop

By Carrie A. Mizell
The 2008 scallop season will mark
one of the best years in recent history,
according to experts from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
An abundance of bay scallops were
found off the Steinhatchee coast, ex-
plained Bill Arnold, an FWC research
scientist, who concluded a, four-day
scallop survey in, the area last Thurs-
There will be four times the num-
ber of scallops this year as there were
last year, Arnold said. "We are seeing
recovery of scallop populations along
the.west coast of Florida rela.tie to
their status in the early 1990s."
Harvesters should work the deeper
waters, Arnold said; focusing on five
to six feet of water where scallops
up to two inches in diameter were
"Last year was decent with 37
scallops per transect, but this year we
found an average of over 140 scallops
per transect," Arnold said. "The best
season was 1996 where we found an
average of 250 scallops."
According to Arnold, divers swim
along a 100-foot line and pick up
and count all scallops within a 6-foot
wide area of the line to determine a
scallop average over the course of 20

of scallop populations from the Pas-
co-Hernando county line to the Mex-
ico Beach Canal in Bay County.
Early surveys indicate that num-
bers are down in the St. Andrew's

Bay and St. Joe Bay areas in 2008.
The population of scallops along
Florida's west coast was greatly de-
pleted years ago due to lack of proper
management and habitat loss, but

restoration efforts in recent years
have helped replenish the population.
Efforts range from restoring the scal-
lops' natural sea grass habitat to no
longer allowing year-round harvest-
ing of scallops.
The scallop season. which official-
ly opened on Tuesday, July 1, will
run through September 10. Bay scal-
lops may be taken only within the al-
lowable harvest areas, which extend
.along Florida's Gulf Coast from the
west bank of the Mexico Beach Ca-
nal in Bay County to the Pasco-Her,
nando county line near Aripeka.
According to FWC officials, it is
illegal to possess bay scallops while
one is in or on state waters outside
the open harvest areas, or to land bay
scallops outside the open areas.
There is'a daily limit of two gal-
lons of whole bay scallops in the
shell or one pint of bay scallop meat
per person during the open season.
In addition, no more than 10 gallons
of whole bay scallops in the shell or
one-half gallon of bay scallop meat
may be possessed aboard any boat at
any time.
Harvesters are only allowed to'
pick up bay scallops by hand or with
a landing or dip net and bay scallops
may not be harvested for commercial
"Harvesters should adhere to scal-
lop-fishing regulations, especially the
daily bag limit," Arnold said. "You
also should collect only the amount
of bay scallops you are willing to

Elected officials step up

to plan for the future

By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County commissioners,
school board members and staff met
together on Monday, June 30 in a
public workshop to take a closer look
at Gilchrist County's future and the
best way to strive to reach their goals.
The meeting was held in the school
district boardroom on the Trenton
High School campus.
School District Vice Chairman
Cloud Haley opened the meeting in
the absence of the school board chair-
man and welcomed each one of the
participating individuals. The meet-
ing was held to further discuss the
proposed planning of the Lake City
Community College satellite campus
just off SW 10th Street in Gilchrist
County and other related infrastruc-
ture considerations.
School Superintendent Buddy
Vickers explained some concerns he
has involving development possibili-
ties in and around the community. He
said that Bell Elementary School is
losing students because their par-
ents have to leave the county to find
work and affordable housing. Vick-
ers pointed out that our high school
graduates are being forced to leave
the county because they are having
to purchase a 5-acre tract of land to
build a house and the expense is just
too great. The group discussed con-
sidering high densities in and around
the municipalities where water and
sewer systems are currently in place.
The Gilchrist County Commission
agreed to revisit the residential den-
sity issue around the municipalities
in the county to consider expanding
growth and keep the higher densities
in these areas.
The group learned that Alachua
County has just recently been permit-
ted through the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District to extract up
to 27 million gallons of water a day
to provide to the City of Gainesville.
This permitted resource involves a
regional well field that is located in
the northwest portion of Alacliua
County that is in the edge of SRW-
MD region.
The group of leaders discussed the



possibilities of an 80-acre regional
well field just northeast of Bell that
could serve the communities of Bell
and Trenton. The Suwannee River
Water Management District is on
board working with a concept of a
regional well field on this proposed
area. The community leaders felt this
project should be a priority to pre-
serve future waters for the communi-
ties in Gilchrist County.
The group discussed the contin-
ued work that is being done through
a committee of county leaders and
staff working to develop a long range
plan and infrastructure that is being
proposed to involve a 50-acre satel-
lite Lake City Community College
campus, a 50-acre high school cam-
pus and 10 acres that would give the
county room for future growth south
of Bell. The committee is working
with the Philpot family, who are
considering donating this portion of
property as a part of a large scale
development south of Bell. Ron Mc-
Queen, Gilchrist County Administra-
tor told the leaders that the Philpot
family will be presenting a conceptu-
al plan to the committee in their next
meeting in July.
The Gilchrist County Commission
will be meeting with Synergy Solu-
tions for Florida on Monday, July 7
to have the grant writing organization
submit an application for a $6 million
Florida Communities Trust grant to
give the county property for planned
development near Bell. This pro-
posed site involves several land own-
ers totaling 350 acres for a regional
well field as well as a recreational
park and other expanded programs.
The leaders are striving for the
municipalities of Trenton and Bell
to become involved in the regional
planned program that would give
Gilchrist County a unified support in
Tallahassee when they plan to meet
with state leaders for additional sup-
port of the expanded educational op-
portunities in Gilchrist County.
The group will be meeting with the
elected city councils in Trenton and
Bell in August to present a proposal
for the municipalities' consideration.

Pht Iman attends Rotary International Law Office of

Convention in Los Angeles

By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Judge Ed Phil-
man just returned from the 99th An-
nual Rotary International Convention
in Los Angeles, California.
Joined by some 19,000 Rotarians
from all over the world, Philman act-
ed as a voting delegate representing
the Trenton Rotary Club at the four-
day convention.
On Monday, Philman shared with
Trenton Rotarians several highlights
from the trip including the conven-'
tion's opening ceremony,, which
boasted over 200 flags representing
different countries from around, the
world. According to Philman, each
flag was carried into the opening cer-
emony by a child involved in Rotary
Philman also touched on the House
of Friendship, which was set up at the

convention to provide 300 booths for
global networking groups, club and
district projects and commercial and
non-conmmercial businesses. Every
House of Friendship featured a spe-
cial theme and d6cor while incorpo-
rating regional cuisine and local arts
and crafts exhibits.
A Rotary project dedicated to col-
lecting surplus crutches and deliver-
ing them to Africa for distribution
caught Philman's attention.
While at the convention, Philman
said he had the opportunity to sit
close to the stage while incoming
Rotary International President D. K.
Lee addressed Rotarians. A highlight
of Philman's trip was speaking with
a couple from Nigeria while eating

dinner one night. He said the couple
spoke fluent English and shared with
him that in Nigeria nine different lan-
guages are commonly spoken.
Philman also spoke of hearing
Dr. Margaret Chan, director general
of the World Health Organization
(WHO) announce plans to make po-
lio eradication the organization's top
operational commitment on a most
urgent basis.
While speaking to Rotarians, Chan
praised Rotary's conviction and big-
'thinking attitude for the season polio
eradication is now within reach.
At the convention, a commitment
of $60 million from the Canadian
government was also obtained and
will go toward polio eradication.

John's Comments
By: John M. Ayers

On Monday evening I had the
opportunity to sit in on a Gilchrist
County Planning Commission meet-
ing beginning at 6 p.m. When I
looked at the agenda I felt confident
the meeting would be short and with-
out controversial issues.
I should have known better, but af-
ter this meeting was finished, I will
think twice before I read an agenda
and think a meeting will be without
This meeting had two applications
that were seeking Special Use Per-
mits to open commercial businesses
in the county. I think both of these
uses would be assets in their area.
An application from a Spring Hill
couple requested part-time use of
their Recreational Vehicle to spend up
to four days over a weekend and up
to 180 days a year on their 5 acre tract
of A-2 zoned property in Gilchrist
County. The applicant admitted to
the board that he and his wife intend
to build a house in Gilchrist County
within two years.
A fourth application identified a
Plant City resident seeking a Spe-
cial Use Permit for use of her RV on
27.8 acres of property in northwest
Gilchrist County. I was amused when
the woman told the board that she had
dealt with a local contractor who told
her the metal building she wanted
to have built on her property would
be designated as an Agriculture Use
structure and therefore did not need
to have a permit for construction.
She told the board that she went on to
have the structure built on the prop-
erty, along with a concrete floor and
had two extensions off of the sides of
the barn to park a tractor under that
she wanted to buy.
After listening to lengthy discus-

sion involving non-permitted uses
on her property, the attorney told the
board they could only act on the ap-
plication that was placed before them
at this time.
The applicant had discussed with
building department staff that she
wanted to have a 400-amp service
connected to the metal building. The
guidelines involving a Special Use
Permit for a RV restrict the service to
60 amps, which is a stand-alone pole.
A Special Use Permit allows the ap-
plicant to live in the RV during a re-
stricted number of days each year. If
the RV is to be stored in a closed in
structure, the unit cannot be connect-
ed to an outside power source.
Gilchrist County is growing and
changing daily. The county estab-
lishes rules, guidelines and permit
fees to cover the expenses that are
generated by new construction and
existing structures being renovated in
the county.
I have looked back on the State of
Florida for years involving guide-
lines and restrictions that are placed
on both residential and commercial
growth. I don't agree with all of the
restrictions and requirements that
people have to comply with, but in
the long term I can see why some of
these restrictions are put in place.
My biggest issue with growth is
that some people think we that have
lived in this county for many years.
are so naive -that we will believe
whatever we are told. My response
to that point is a statement that my
father J. Min Ayers would respond
with, "Your actions speak louder than
your words." In this statement he was
so right again. If you lie to me and I
discover it, why should I believe any-
thing you say in the future.

Letters to the Editor )

Good ole boys
Concerning the letter to the edi-
tor in the June 26th edition of the
Gilchrist County Journal, which was
written by Travis Willis, we are the
"good ole boys,"... I have lived in
Gilchrist County for 18 years and
we ain't never had no problems with
any disrespectful skateboarders until
about a year ago.
If you must know ya'll had a skate-
board park at the city park, and would
not take care of it or be respectful to
the neighbors...just ask them...they
will be glad to tell you about all the
filthy talking and destruction of prop-

erty that happened at the "city park."
I believe that Trenton IS A COM-
one am proud to call it home. Yes, we
have heard of Tony Hawk and didn't
really care. Have you ever heard of
the "Dukes of Hazzard?"
Personally, I believe that if these
kids want a skateboard park, they
should get a job and build something
at their own home, that is what the
rest of us do.
We, "good ole boys" like to play in
the mud, but we don't aggravate the
City of Trenton to make us a MUD

Put your money
where your'mouth is
Dear Editor,
We have been residents of Gilchiist
County with a Trenton address for
nearly 18 years.
Without pay, we have worked
in Christian ministry to youth for
nearly 30 years. When we moved to
Gilchrist from Hillsborough County
we began seeking the Lord's lead-
ing as to what we could do to-make
a difference in the lives of people in
our "adopted" county. So 7 1/2 years
ago we became coordinators for the
Character First! Initiative, which
has *since sponsored the Character
Council of Gilchrist County. Pres-
ently there are over 30 cooperative
and industrious adults in the Council
who make it their business to strive to
improve our county as servant/lead-
ers with positive character by being
involved in a number of events and
programs throughout the year. Some
of those people live right in the City
of Trenton.
Our hearts are such that we do
see needs in our county and desire
to make a difference, especially in
the lives of young people, in teach-
ing them how to be servant/leaders
rather than to be served all the time.
We have dreamed of and prayed for
and talked about how our wonderful
county could (and should) support
a youth center, with campuses in
Bell, Fanning Springs and Trenton.
A youth center that would accommo-
date varied interests youth have, with
a reading room, a gym, a skate park,
a game room, and arts & crafts room,
a conference room, sponsorship of
summer programs, while providing
transportation, adult volunteers and
other amenities, such as servant/
leadership classes.. Of course, if this
dream is ever to become a reality, it
will take a great deal of planning,

Freedom Can Only Be Found From God
(Kent Heaton)

Thomas Jefferson wrote, "And can the liberties of a
nation be thought secure, when we have removed their
only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people
that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not
to be violated but by his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my
country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice
cannot sleep forever" (Notes on Virginia, 1784). The
nature of freedom is relative to what men want to be free
from. Our country was founded upon the principles of the
knowledge of a Creator and from His hand life is
sustained. Belief in God was not ridiculed as in our day.
Prayer was not banished nor service to the one true God
abandoned. Freedom celebrated in this generation is
freedom from the restraints of a loving Creator.
The irony of our freedom is the enslaving power of
self. Karl Barth said, "What was called freedom in the
European age now past collapsed, and was bound to
collapse, because for a long time and at an amazingly
deep level it had degenerated into a freedom for
godlessness and .inhumanity" (Community, Church and
State, 1946). The Psalmist declared: "Blessed is the
nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalms 33:12). When a
nation turns away from the foundational belief that man is
to serve the Creator, society falls headlong into a godless,
immoral and self-serving avalanche of destruction.
Paul shows the course of man's enslavement to self in
Romans 1. First he shows how man chose not to glorify
the Creator. "For even though they knew God, they did
not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became
futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was
darkened" (Romans 1:21). In the darkness of their hearts,
men "exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and
worshiped and served the creature rather than the
Creator, who is blessed forever" (Romans 1:25). Falling

headlong into godless acts of homosexuality (yv26,27)
they "did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God
gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things
which are not proper" (Romans 1:28), When you take a
moment to read Romans 1:29-32 you will see the freedom
man has found in serving the creature (himself) rather than
the Creator (Jehovah God).
All nations exist by the power of the Creator. "Every
person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities.
For there is no authority except from God, and those
which exist are established by God" (Romans 13:1). In
Hannah's prayer of 1 Samuel 2, she declares the majesty
of God's power over all mankind: "The Lord kills and
makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. The
Lord makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also
exalts. He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the
needy from the ash heap to make them sit with nobles,
and inherit a seat of honor; for the pillars of the earth
are the Lord's, and He set the world on them. He keeps
the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are
silenced in darkness; for not by might shall a man
prevail. Those who contend with the Lord will be
shattered; against them He will thunder in.the heavens,
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth; and He will
give strength to His king, and will exalt the horn of His
anointed" (1 Samuel 2:6-10).
For man to enjoy freedom he must submit to the
Creator of the world. This submission is not oppressive (1
John 5:3) but filled with love and grace. The Lord protects
us and cares for us. The Creator of the world gave His
only begotten Son to give us freedom (Romans 6:23;
Galatians 5:1). Celebrate freedom in the willingness to
abide by His care and His rule. True freedom can only
come from Jehovah God.

With all that said, we set a chal-

lis. Sir, put your money where your
mouth is. Stop complaining and do
something good for our young peo-
ple, for if you try hard enough, while
demonstrating the character qualities
of tolerance, patience, and diligence,
without pre-judging others, you could
also make a difference.
Oh! and one more thing. You seem
to not yet know your Trenton neigh-
bors very well, for Trenton is a city
of good character, whether or not you
believe it or understand it. So we urge
you to keep in mind that good char-
acter determines success and success
requires servant/leadership.

Lake City

man dies in




By Carrie A. Mizell
A 30-year-old Lake City man died
in head-on collision on County Road
136 in Suwannee County early Satur-
day morning.
Joshua Franklin Votano of Lake
City was driving a 1993 Ford south
on County Road 136 when a 1997
Cadi driven by Donald Robert Davis
Jr., 29, of Branford crossed over the
center line of the highway. According
to the available on-scene evidence,
Davis' vehicle struck the left front
fender of Votano's vehicle. Davis'
vehicle rotated counter clockwise be-
fore coming to rest facing southwest
on the east shoulder of County Road
136. Votano's vehicle rotated clock-
wise and came to a final rest facing
According to a Florida Highway
Patrol report, neither driver was
wearing a seatbelt when the accident
occurred at 6:35 a.m. Votano was
ejected out the driver's window of
his vehicle. Davis sustained minor
injuries in the accident.

Karate skills earn Trenton police officer

gold, silver medals

By Carrie A. Mizell
A reserve police officer employed
by the City of Trenton won a gold
and silver medal while competing at
the Florida Police & Fire Games in
Sarasota. .
Andy Home of Bell competed
in the karate/kaia' :e'ent' on Jne
17 where he won'a gold medal for
forms, which is a pre-arranged pat-
tern of self defense moves against an
imaginary opponent. Home also won
a silver medal in the fighting compe-
tition, which is a series of two-minute
matches worth 5 points each.
"Karate keeps me very active and
sharpens my reflexes," Home said.
"Where under normal circumstances
an officer might have to draw a baton
or a Taser, I don't have to because of
my training."
Employed by the Trenton Police
Department since February 2008,
Home had retired from competition

A delightful little book written by
Robert Munsch especially for chil-
dren is "Alligator Baby."
Kristen's mother
woke one night
and told her hus-
band she was go-
ing to have a baby
and she needed to
go to the hospital.
But in his excite-
ment he took her
to the zoo. When '
they arrived home
and unwrapped the
baby, it was an alli-
gator baby who bit
the father on the
nose. On the next rip to the zoo they
received a baby seal that whopped
the father in the with its flipper.
Then on the next- trip, the baby was
a gorilla.

Read the book to find out if they
ever got a people baby.
For junior readers, I suggest the
Nancy Drew books
that have been ex-
citing to explore
as Nancy solves
mysteries like she
did in "Hotline to
Danger," written by
Carolyn Keene.
For the adults, I

Spencer is eleven years old and
loves her many 4-H projects, includ-
ing the rabbit project, garden project,
veterinary science, dog project, goat

where Spencer shines is in her 4-H
poultry project.
Spencer is in her third year of par-
ticipating in the Gilchrist County
4-H laying hen project. In the proj-
ect, 4-H'ers like Spencer purchase
15 brown-egg laying pullets. This
year Spencer chose Barred Plym-
outh Rocks, Black Australorps, Dela-
wares, and Ameraucanas.' Spencer
will raise these pullets into a flock
of brown-egg laying hens. Spencer
has quite a few hens from past years'
projects and with help from her dad
and grandpa probably has the fanci-
est chicken coop in Gilchrist Coun-
ty. Spencer has learned to market

her farm-fresh brown eggs and
this year participated on Gilchrist
County's poultry judging team.
Spencer shows her chickens at
the Suwannee River Youth Fair
and won second place in poultry
showmanship in her age category.
Spencer has added some fancy
bantams to her flock of layers to
diversify the chickens she brings
to poultry shows.
Spencer is very active in church,
enjoys acting in plays, and has a
fun-loving personality.
Spencer also has one duck and is
planning on raising a home-grown
steer and heifer from her daddy's
herd for next year's fair.

Nature Coast Garden Notes

by Anthony Drew.
Levy County Extension Agent
To 'Hold' or 'Fold' the Warmn
Season Garden
Welcome July and the joys of sum-
mer! I trust you've had good success
with your garden and hope you've
enjoyed an abundant vegetable har-
vest. If planted in March-April,
there may be some vegetables that
are hanging on and still producing,
but most have done their job and are
'finished' for the season. With our
climate, it's understandable to desire
vegetable production throughout the
year. However, as a rule of thumb, I
use three primary factors; those being
plant disease, insects, and natural heat
tolerance of a particular vegetable to
determine whether to 'hold' or 'fold'
my garden production season.
Plant diseases become more com-
mon as high temperatures (70 degrees
or more at night) and high humidity
prevail. All garden plants are suscep-
tible to particular diseases. Certain
plant diseases are always present,
but disease occurrence is more wide-
spread during the summer because
disease has gradually built up during
the growing season.
Insects undergo an annual 'popu-
lation explosion' during the warm
and moist summer months. From the
perspective of seasonal cycles, our
garden vegetables are entering the
season of maximum risk of insect in-
Vegetables such as round variety
tomatoes, most leaf and 'root and
stem' vegetables, bell peppers and
snap beans naturally have a low tol-
erancq to highltelpgperature.s. ;

"do I 'hold' or 'fold' till the :i,:c ,I r.-
deming season?" If you decide to
'hold' recognize that the plants you're
nursing along from the spring garden
may develop diseases and you may
have to accept or fight insects for the
right to eat the fruits'of your labor.
If you decide to 'fold', use this as
an opportunity to regroup, resupply,
and prepare for the next garden sea-
son. There are several tasks that may
be accomplished during this time. Re-

move and compost the spent plants.
If you can't completely remove them,
mow them and till them in. If you are
rotating your garden spots (a practice
that I highly recommend), clean out
the garden and establish a good cover
crop. This is also the ideal time to
utilize soil solarization techniques
in order to help manage nematodes,
soil borne diseases and some weed
For more information on planting
warm and cool season vegetables,

ble Gardening Guide. There are also

SVL's 14U baseball team wins district I tournament

by Todd Bryant
On Friday, June 20th, SVL's 14U
baseball team traveled to Live Oak
to play in the District 1 tournament.
There were only three teams partici-
pating SVL, Mayo and Ft. White.
SVL drew Mayo for the first game
with Ft. White getting the bye in the
double elimination tournament.
SVL was the home team in the first
game. Darren Skawienski started on
the mound for SVL. In the first inning
Mayo scored two runs off Skawiens-
ki with four hits and two walks. In the
second inning Skawienski struggled,
giving up another run, and was re-
placed by Corbin Wiggins. Wiggins
pitched the remaining 2/3 inning in
the second, and then completed the
third, fourth, and fifth innings while
only giving up one run. In the fifth
inning, with one out and runners on
second and third, Wiggins picked off
an important run at second base. In
the sixth inning Wiggins got the first
batter to fly out to right field but was
wearing out in the heat. In four innings
work Wiggins gave up two walks and
seven hits, but only one run. Cedric
Stokes replaced Wiggins getting four
fly balls and a groundout to finish the
sixth and seventh innings. Offensive-
ly SVL had 12 hits. Cedric Stokes
had three hits, including a double and
scored a run. Jonathan Smith singled
and scored. Jonathan Rowe had a sin-
gle, a double, and a walk and scored
once. Darren Skawienski singled and
scored. Hunter Williams singled and
scored, Kane Crosby doubled and
scored, and Brandon Stone singled
and scored. SVL won 7-4 and ad-
vanced to the next game.
On Saturday morning SVL met Ft.
White at 10 a.m. SVL was the visit-
ing team and batted first. Ft. White
started Pendergrast on the mound, a
right hander with good control. In the
1st inning Stokes led off with a walk
and scored, Jonathan Smith singled
and later scored, Clif Bryant walked
and scored, and Rowe singled and
later scored. In the second inning
'Stokes singled again but was forced
out at second on a ground ball. Smith
walked and Bryant was hit by a pitch
and both later scored on a Rowe tri-
ple. In the 3rd and 4th innings Pen-
dergrast shut down the SVL offense,
giving up a single to Brandon Stone
in the 3rd and Hunter Parrish in the
4th. Ft. White replaced Pendergrast
with Sharpe on the mound in the top
of the fifth. Sharpe, a crafty lefthand-
er with a good curve ball, kept SVL
off balance in the fifth, sixth, and sev-
enth innings. Sharpe struck out three
and gave up no additional runs. SVL
started Kane Crosby on the mound.
Crosby is a hard throwing right hand-
er that had beat Ft. White earlier in
the summer. Crosby pitched six great

innings, giving up four walks, scatter-
ing five hits, striking out 3, and only
allowing one run. After 82 pitches
Crosby was replaced by Hunter Wil-
liams. Williams pitched the 7th in-
ning, giving up one walk, two singles
and two runs. Williams picked off
Sharpe at second base for the third
out, ending the game with SVL ahead
6-3. Ft. White and Mayo would meet
later in the day with Ft. White win-
ning 11-1, setting up another meeting
between SVL and Ft. White.
On Sunday, SVL faced Ft. White
for the Championship. Since SVL
was undefeated they would be the
home team. Wiggins would start
on the mound after a full day's rest.
Wiggins had beat Mayo on Friday
and had only thrown 45 pitches. Wig-
gins began the first inning by only
facing three batters. Ft. White started
Pendergrast on the mound again. He
had pitched six innings the day be-
fore against SVL and Mayo, throw-
ing close to 100 pitches. In the first
inning Pendergrast faced four batters,
giving up a single to Jonathan Smith.
Smith moved to 2nd base on a pass
ball but was left stranded. At the end
of the first inning the score was 0-0.
In the second inning Wiggins got into
some trouble. Gaskins led off with a
single, Conley doubled scoring Gas-
kins, and Morgan singled scoring
Conley. SVL only got one batter to
base in th second when Hunter Wil-
liams was hit by a pitch. At the end
of two innings, Ft. White led 2-0. In
the third Wiggins faced four batters,
walking one and getting three ground
balls. Pendergrast followed suit, giv-
ing up a single to Stone but got out of
the inning without giving up a run. At
the end of three innings the score was
2-0, Ft. White. In the fourth Wiggins
faced three batters, only throwing
three pitches. Pendergrast came in
for his last inning, giving up a single
to Jonathan Rowe but finished with-
out surrendering a run. At the end of
four innings, Ft. White still led 2-
0. In the fifth inning Wiggins again
faced only three batters. Morgan
was hit by a pitch, stole second and
moved to third on a fielder's choice.
With two outs Morgan tried to steal
home from third. Wiggins was in the
wind up, threw a strike and Bryant
dived in front of home plate just in
time to block Morgan off the base
and preserve the score at 2-0. Thru
five innings Wiggins had thrown 56
pitches. In the bottom of the fifth
Sharpe replaced Pendergrast. Sharpe
faced only three batters in the fifth.
In the top of the sixth Wiggins faced
four batters, giving up another single
to Gaskins. Wiggins had thrown 65
pitches thru the sixth inning and was
still strong. In the sixth inning SVL
finally got on the scoreboard. Smith

walked, moved over to second on a
fielder's choice and scored on a Rowe
single. Skawienski singled next but
the inning ended with Rowe trying to
stretch a base and was thrown out at
third. The score at the end of six in-
nings was 2-1, Ft. White. In the top
of the seventh Wiggins got Ft. White
to hit three fly balls and SVL went
into the bottom of the inning hoping
to score a run and tie the game. How-
ever, SVL could not get a runner in
scoring position and the game ended
2-1. Wiggins pitched all seven innings
for SVL, walking only two, giving up
four hits and only two runs.
After losing the first game SVL
lost its home advantage and would
be the visitor in the final game. Ft.
White was very confident after their
win and would continue with Sharpe
on the mound. SVL would go back to
Crosby to start the game. Crosby had
thrown 82 pitches the day before but
wanted the start and felt good. Sharpe
faced five batters in the first iftning,
giving up a single to Parrish and a
walk to Smith. Parrish and Smith
moved to second and third with two
outs but were stranded at the end of
the inning. Crosby struck out the first
batter but walked Wilkinson. Sharpe
then singled and Gaskins singled and

Within a few days we will cel-
ebrate America's birthday...a great
time to reflect on the freedom we
enjoy as citizens. Freedom is a pow-
erful thing, and like anything power-
ful, it brings with it a measure of risk
and uncertainty. Having freedom
means that no one makes our choices
for us...it also brings the liability of
those choices.., .whether they produce
blessing or suffering, the results are
ours to claim.
Given that the driving force be-
hind America's birth was religious
freedom, it is strange that while our
country is associated with indepen-
dence, Christians have long con-
vinced the world that we are anything
but free. It is the common perception
that Christians have a long list of im-
possible rules to live by, (hence their
sour dispositions.) In his book "A
Scandalous Freedom", author Steve
Brown tells the following story:
Abraham Lincoln went to a slave
market. There he noted a young,
beautiful African-American woman
being auctioned off to the highest of-
fer. He bid on her and won. He could
see the anger in her eyes and could
imagine what she was thinking, "An-
other white man who will buy me,
use me, and then discard me." As
Lincoln walked off with his "proper-
ty," he turned to the woman and said,
"You're free." "Yeah. What does that
mean?" she replied. "It means that
you're free." "Does that mean I can
say whatever I want to say?" "Yes,"
replied Lincoln, smiling, "it means
that you can,say whatever you want
to say." "Does it mean," she asked
incredulously, "that I can be what-
ever I want to be?" "Yes, you can
be whatever you want to be." "Does
it mean," the young woman asked
hesitantly "that I can go wherever I
want to go?" "Yes, it means you are
free and can go wherever you want to
go." "Then," said the young woman
with tears welling up in her eyes, "I

DROP get the facts

think I'll go with you."
Galatians 5:1 .says, "It is for free-
dom that Christ has set us free. Stand
firm then and do not let yourselves
be burdened again by a yoke of slav-
ery." God gives us freedom because
He wants us to choose Him. Picture
this newly freed young woman liv-
ing and perhaps even serving in Lin-
coln's home...not because she must,
but because she chooses, out of grati-
tude and for her own protection. In
her world, there would always be one
waiting to take her back to slavery...
she would not stay free on her own...
neither will we. Our culture and our
own desires will similarly entrap us,
so if we want to stay free, we too
must stay close under the protection
of the One who grants our freedom!
God is after a relationship with you
and me...not a list of rules. "Where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is free-
dom." (2 Corinthians 3:17) Healthy
relationships will always reflect free-
dom rather than bondage. Experience
real freedom...it's your choice...be-
cause your heart matters.

efforts should include the "5 D's" for
prevention: Dusk and Dawn -- Avoid
being outdoors when mosquitoes are
seeking blood. For many species, this
is during the dusk and dawn hours.
Dress -- Wear clothing that covers:
most of your skin. DEET -- When:
the potential exists for exposure to
mosquitoes, repellents containing:
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide,,
or N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide):
are recommended. Picaridin, oil of
lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are'
other repellent options. Drainage
-- Check around your home to rid
the area of standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
Elimination of breeding sites is one'
of the keys to prevention.
Tips on' Eliminating Mosquito
Breeding Sites
Clean out eaves, troughs and gut-
ters. Remove old tires or drill.holes
in those used in playgrounds to drain..
Turn over or remove empty plastic'
pots. Pick up all beverage contain-,
ers and cups. Check. tarps on boats
or other equipment that may collect,
water. Pump out bilges on boats. Re-
place water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes at least-.
once a week. Change water in plant.'
trays, including hanging plants, at':
least once a week. Remove vegeta-^
tion or obstructions in drainage ditch-;
es that prevent the flow of water.

Ayers Sewing Group visits Kids World

Knock-out roses
Knockout roses will make an eye-
catching addition to your home land-
scape. They come in blush, pink,
rainbow, red and double red. A new
edition in. the knockout rose collec-
tion is sunny yellow, which will be
on the market soon.
Knockout roses are fast growers
that don't need to be deadheaded.
Trim only if the plant gets too large
or odd shaped. Cutting off old blooms
will slow new bloom production.
Plant in full sun to partial shade

and use a prepared rose fertilizer.
Watering twice a week is sufficient.
Mulching your roses with pine bark
or straw is best.
Knockout roses are bred to be dis-
ease resistant but will sometimes .get

Streetwise By Lauren Rudd I OG CABIN Q I QUILTED

You could almost once again hear
the collective sigh of relief on the
part of the nation's consumers and
suppliers after the latest Energy In-
formation Administration (EIA) re-
port showed that crude oil inventories
rose by 800,000 barrels to 301.8 mil-
lion barrels for the week ended June
20. The news immediately sent the
futures contract for light, sweet crude
for August delivery down $4.86 to
$132.14 on the New York Mercantile
Exchange, although the contract end-
ed the day down only $2.45 to close
at $134.55.
There was only one small problem.
Exactly the same thing happened
during the last week of June one year
ago, only then the same news of an
increased supply for the week sent
the August futures contract for sweet
crude down $1.04 to $68.50. In ret-
rospect, the futures contract price for
August delivery has just about dou-
bled in one year.
The increase in crude supplies
came as gasoline demand, which has
fallen as rising prices force motorists
to adjust their driving habits, fell 2.1
percent over the past four weeks as

compared to year-ago levels. None-
theless, a year ago, the pump price
for gasoline was $2.998, according
to AAA, where as today it is right
around $4.00 per gallon, a 33 percent
Furthermore, according to the EIA,
world energy demand will increase
50 percent and oil prices could rise
to $186 per barrel over the next 20
years. Nuts, my projection is that
crude will exceed $150 per barrel
this year. And 20 years from now...
my calculator begins to overheat do-

ing the calculation.
The EIA stated in its long-range
forecast that the steepest increases
in energy use will come from China
and other developing economies,
including some in the Middle East
and Africa where energy demand is
expected to be 85 percent greater in
2030 than it is today. Does anyone
want to guess what I will be writing
about one year from now?
Where is all this leading? Simply
put, despite small perturbations, the
demand, and subsequently the price,
for crude oil and its derivatives will
increase. Furthermore, the supply
is limited and bringing that supply
to market is becoming increasingly
difficult and expensive. Therefore,
higher prices at every point in the
supply line are inevitable. So, if you
would like a small piece of the pie,
you might want to continue to lbok at
energy companies as possible invest-
ment candidates.
One company that continually
pops out as an investment candidate
is Smith International, a company
that I wrote about a year ago for the
first time. Smith is a manufacturer of
premium drill bits, drilling fluids, and
related produces. Its Services Division
offers drilling-related services. M-I
SWACO, which is 60 percent owned
by Smith, sells fluids used to cool and
lubricate drill bits and prevent pipes
from clogging. The Wilson division
provides pipes and fittings, while its
Technologies division produces drill
bits and other drilling equipment.
More importantly, the company's.
share price has quadrupled over the
past ten years, while the S&P 500
index hasn't quite doubled. My tar-
get for the stock a year ago was $69
per share against a price back then of
$58. The stock recently closed at $79
per share, providing you with a capi-
tal appreciation of 35 percent.
On April 22, Smith reported first
quarter net income of $175 million,
or 87 cents per share, on revenues of
$2.37 billion. The Company's results
for the comparable prior year quar-
ter, net of a four-cent non-recurring
tax benefit, were $152.7 million, or
76 cents per share, on revenues of
$2.11 billion. The intrinsic value of
the shares, using a discounted earn-
ings model with a discount rate of 15
percent, is $183; where as a free cash
flow to the firm model yields an in-
trinsic value of $132.
My current earnings estimate for
2008 is $4.00 per share and $4.80
per share for 2009, with a current
12-month target price on the shares
of $90, for, an annual gain of about
15 percent. -Thre is-atso a dividend-
yield of 0.60 percent.

Quilters News
The first two sessions of the 4-H
Sewing Camp have just ended with
the third and final week for interme-
diate students planned for the third
week in July. Elaine Faison and vol-
unteers from Springhouse host the
camp each summer to help train and
teach young people sewing and quilt-
The first sessions was a group of
15 young people between the ages
of 8 and 13 with 4 boys and 11 girls.
These young people had never been
exposed to a sewing machine. Within
the first hour of the first day, all 15 of
these young people had the machines
.humming a wonderful tune. They
have to first learn the machine, the
name of each part and its function,
and the care of the machines. The 4-
H Council has sufficient sewing ma-
chines that each person had their own
machine. These young people were
able to complete all of the planned
projects during the 4-day camp.
The second session of the Sewing
Camp was a smaller group of very
advanced, older 4-H girls. These la-
dies were making quilt blocks for a
sampler quilt. There were curves,

points and seams that were all made
perfectly. Some of these advanced
students helped the beginners.
Summer is finally here but Spring-
house members are still very busy
with their quilting projects and meet-
ings. The next regular meeting for
Springhouse will be on July 8, begin-
ning at 9 a.m. for the day group and
at 6:45 p.m. for the night group. For
information, contact Lois Scott, 463-

This Log Cabin quilt has been made in many colors, this one is red

during a course that covers a vari-
ety of sections ranging from wildlife
identification and survival to black-
powder and ammunition.
Taught by volunteer hunter safety
and bowhunting instructors Terry and
Norma Neenan of Bell, the course
consists of 16 hours of class work,
a written test and field work on the
"We are volunteers and receive no
pay for putting on this course," Nor-
ma explained. "Our pay is hopefully
putting safe hunters into the field."
The course is open to the general
public and is the only traditional class
that the Neenans put on during the
year, Norma explained. The 16 hours
of class work is easier for younger
children to comprehend because they
are able to see and utilize touching as
well as listening to the content of the
Twelve different sections make up
-the course. Sections include: archer,
blackpowder, modem firearms and

agement of land resources, wildlife
identification, survival and first aid,
safety and field work on the .range
following the final test.
"We really enjoy doing the class
for the 4-H and hope to continue to
do it every year," Norma said.
The couple has been teaching the
course for over 25 years, mainly in
the Clearwater area prior to retir-
ing and moving to Gilchrist County.
Since moving to Bell, they have con-
tinued teaching the class not only
to local 4-H members over the last

five years, but also in other counties
throughout the state. According to.
Norma, all other classes are online
courses, which means that a person
studies the material on the computer
before answering questions at the end
of each section. The hunter safety
course requires students take a one-
day class, which consists 8f the phas-
es they were not able to complete,
on the computer. Every class ends
with a range day where students are
observed handling firearms safely,
Students must pass all sections of the
class to be a graduate of the course. >
