According to Kyle Stone, execu-
.tive director of the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce, several .bus
loads of people from central Florida

whom are fourth generation Gilchrist
County natives, will be performing
live music at the Antique Road Show

Imagine a 75-acre field flourish-

Though they.may look a little
unusual, the plastic tunnels are per-

temperatures dip int6 the low 40s

on Monday.
Local watermelon grower Rantz
Smith and his partner Alto Straughn
are banking on the wind tunnels
pushing their harvest up by 10 to
14 days, which could possibly have
them picking as early as May 5.
"It's an experiment at best,"
Smith said. "They look good right
now, but we've got a long way to
It's an expensive venture that
will require Smith to get an extra

On Monday, Smith said he had
about 300 of the 400 total acres of
watermelons he will plant in Gil-
christ County this spring already
in the ground. Out of the 400 acres,
only 75 are under plastic tunnels.
Planting watermelons under wind
tunnels is a relatively new concept
in Gilchrist County, though Larry
Grant and Howard Bailey tried
planting watermelons under wind
tunnels in Gilchrist County several
years ago.
As the first farmer in North Flori-
da to grow and market seedless wa-
termelons on a large scale some 20
year ago, Straughn said'that earlier
efforts to use wind tunnels in Gil-
christ County were largely unsuc-
cessful because back when Grant
and Bailey tried the method, no one
knew that wind tunnels had to have

Straughn said. "Wind tunnels are

Using wind tunnels is very time
sensitive, Straughn explained. As
soon as the plants begin to flower,
which should be late March, then the
plastic tunnels will have to be ripped
off. Like other plants grown in a con-
trolled environment, the watermelon
plants will then have to stabilize and
adapt to growing in the elements.
"The tunnels will have to come off .

Bell man admits to firing a shot at tree trimmer

By Carrie A. Mizell
A sworn complaint has been filed
against a Bell man who reportedly
threatened to shoot a man in the head
who was hired to trim trees on his
According to the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, Edward Lamar
Bass, 56, of 4740 NW 27th Court in
Bell, was reportedly upset that tree
limbs were being cut on his property
by a sub-contractor hired by Central
Florida Electric.
Bass reportedly walked up to a tree
trimming machine being operated by
Christopher Lewis of Old Town and
told him to get off of his property.
'Bass then went to his truck and
came back with a shotgun, which he
aimed at Lewis' head, but apparently
pulled it up before firing a shot.
Bass then. re-loaded his gun and
told Lewis that the next shot would
be in his head.
Before Lewis could call 911, Bass
had left the scene, but was reportedly
pulled over in the Bell town limits by
a deputy from the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office.
While interviewing Bass, deputies
said that he spontaneously said that
he did fire a shot, which led to why he
is being charged with a felony charge
of aggravated assault.
According to Gilchrist County
Sheriff Daniel Slaughter, this incident
is not the first time Bass has threat-
ened someone with a firearm. He has
been banned from Bell Elementary
School after threatening a student
there, Sheriff Slaughter explained.
In that case, Slaughter said that his
office did not have enough evidence
to charge Bass.
Despite Bass' history, Sheriff
Slaughter said that he is more in-
clined to label Bass, who is on oxy-
gen, as an "omery, old man" than an

actual threat to the community.
When asked why Bass was not ar-
rested when he was stopped in Bell
after threatening Lewis with last
week, Sheriff Slaughter said that it
took an hour for his officers to deter-
mine if Bass had actually fired a shot
at Lewis or up in the air, which 'he
said is the difference between a mis-

demeanor and a felony.
Sheriff Slaughter went on to say
that the firearm Bass used to threaten
Lewis last week was located inside
Bass' home and been turned over to
a relative.
"I am not qualified to judge a per-
son's mental state," Slaughter said.
"But I know, I don't want him to have

contact with a firearm."
Investigators at the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office were still working
'on the case at press time Tuesday.
According to Sheriff Slaughter,
Christopher Lewis' employer Davey
Tree Service, wanted to see Bass ar-
rested for firing shots at one of their

Pack of dogs kill a child's

pet in Appaloosa Trails

By John M. Ayers
A group of Appaloosa Trails resi-
dents attended the March 7th Board
of County Commissioners meeting to
ask the board for help in dealing with
a pack of dogs that killed a child's
house pet.
Daneen Denny, a resident of the
northeast Gilchrist County subdivi-
sion, explained that the pack of dogs
has gotten, so bad that she fears for'
the safety of young children and
small pets as they play in their resi-
dential yards.
On February 26, while Mrs. Denny
was in her home, she reported hearing
a scary noise that sounded like dogs
attacking something, she explained.
She grabbed a stick and went to see
what the noise was.
When she arrived on a neighbor's
property, she saw that a pack of dogs
had attacked a neighbor's pet that
had gotten out of the house by mis-
take and the neighbor's small dog
was dead.
She told the board that she had
called the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office and Gilchrist County Animal
An animal control officer did come
and investigate the incident and
picked up two of the dogs that were
in the large pack, Mrs. Denny ex-
plained. She also told the board that
she lives on NE 43rd Avenue off SR
47. She estimated there being 14 or
15 dogs in the pack.
"Whatever we can do to help in this
issue..." Denny said. "We as residents
are willing to become involved."
Gilchrist County Attorney John
McPherson told the audience these

animals must be classified as danger-
ous dogs. He asked the residents to
provide as much information about
each of the dogs as possible, which
will be given to Gilchrist County An-
imal Control.
The Gilchrist County Commission
assured the ladies attending the meet-
ing that they would work together to
correct the problem.

ing as an appraiser at the Antique

of the Month

By Geneva Cornwell
Some have referred to common
sense as the least used of all senses.
People who 'find themselves in a di-
lemma usually get there because they
have not considered the cause-and-
effect patterns of behavior; therefore,
that consideration is known as dis-
cernment. In using discernment, one
needs to ask questions, not prejudge
hastily, learn from experience, not re-
peat mistakes, and trace problems to
their causes.
Discernment is the act of reveal-
ing insight and understanding, with
the quality of being able to grasp and
comprehend what cannot readily be
seen. Discernment requires accurate
perception of surface matters. Dis-
cernment goes beyond qualities to
search out underlying causes. While
it is easy to become bogged down in
too many details, discernment search-
es out and applies all the information
necessary to make wise decisions, for
lasting solutions usually start at both
the top and the bottom and meet in
the middle.
The object of interviewing citizens
of our wonderful county who demon-
strate a specific character quality is
to find those special people who are
rather hidden; those who go about
their daily lives and work like a good
soldier who simply performs a duty
with graciousness and honor, with
no fan fair or need to be recognized,
since they are comfortable in their
own skin and find joy in the tasks
which lay before them.
There is one such person, Mrs.
Nancy Rowe, who happens to be the
Reading Coach at Bell High School.
Her labor of love consists of students
from grade six to twelve. Mrs. Rowe
loves her job and has worked there
since 1986, some seven years after
she moved to Gilchrist County from
West Palm Beach.
Rowe believes that discernment is
a part of her life because of what she
was taught as a child; "to be in tune
with what is around you, and with
keenness, while sympathizing with
people who are hurting." She shared
that there surely "will be struggles in
life; and being available to support
and encourage people," while dis-
cerning their needs, "is a special gift,
not just for the discerner, but for the
person who wishes to have a listen-
ing ear" and a shoulder to lean on.
Mrs. Rowe stated, "Since we live
in a 'Me! Me!' generation, it is nec-
essary to help others, especially chil-
dren and youth, to understand that life
is filled with other people, and others
have needs also; and their needs may
be much more important at the mo-
ment." She attempts to teach all ages
of people that "when we help others,
while being sensitive to them, the
goodness will eventually come back
to us." Rowe reminds herself how
much we lack in our country of virtue
and that teaching character is a good
thing. She is glad that we have a
character program in our school sys-
tem. Rowe is a member of Trenton
First Baptist and believes that as one
seeks to be discerning, God's word
is a wonderful help, especially from
Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart, and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy
ways acknowledge Him, and He will
direct thy paths."
Yes, moral character crosses all
boundaries and is a life-long process.
After nine years, the Character Coun-
cil continues.on its mission of setting
forth examples of good standards. If

Dear Fair Booster,
As you know, this year's Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show is just a couple
of weeks away. We are again working to raise funds to help buy animals that our FFA
and 4-H members will show in this year's fair. Our main goal is to help establish a
minimum sale price so the youth of our county are all supported equally. We also
support the FFA Chapters and 4-H Clubs of Gilchrist County by trying to purchase
their animals. With your gracious help, last year we were able to raise approximately.
$24,664 with which we bought 38 animals. The children that benefited from the
gracious donations all left this experience with a huge smile on their face.
Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund rais-
ing process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to
934 East Wade Street, Trenton, FL 32693. Please give Terry Parrish a call at (352)-

like to personally help with this project.
Again, we really appreciate your help and look forward to your participation this

down to me. After all, if the bowls, which were made in the 1950s, are worth
nearly $100 now, what in the world will they be worth 40 years from now?
Granny found the vintage mixing bowls in an old motel near the airport
in Cedar Key. The motel, which operated under the name of Seaton's Motel,
was on property that she and my grandfather built a home on in 1972.
As a kid I can remember sitting on the balcony at my grandparents' house
in Cedar Key and watching the 4th of July fireworks light up the sky. I can
also recall fishing off the dock behind their house with my papa, and writ-
ing with chalk on the sidewalk in front of the old motel, which of course,
intrigued me. It was in that same yard that my parents got married in July
The motel is long gone now and my grandparents sold their house in Cedar
Key years ago, but for me those mixing bowls hold special memories. Mem-
ories I am adding to with my own daughter as we stir up a batch of cookies
or serve up acre peas in the brightly colored bowls.
Friday night the citizens of Gilchrist County will have a unique opportu-
nity to have family heirlooms, or just treasures found at Goodwill (I have a
lot of those too!) appraised by experts during the 2nd Annual Antique Road
Show, which will be held at the Trenton Depot from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Not only is it a night full of interesting stories and surprises; it's also a perfect
time to catch up with neighbors from throughout the community.

L 6 O t o Or

Gilchrist County is known for its
natural beauty. People come from
- miles around to see, for just a small
portion of time', what you and I are
blessed to see everyday. Unfortu-
nately, we are not as beautiful as we
could be. I recently had a family visit
from the east coast of Florida. We
were driving around the area and one
member of the family said, "Wow,
what a lot of garbage all over the
side of the roads. It really looks ter-
rible." I was embarrassed, but I was
also saddened that some people don't
care or have enough pride to keep
their community clean. My road is a
perfect example of this lack of pride.
On.my daily walks, I can tell you that
the citizens of Gilchrist County love
McDonalds, Burger Spot, and Hitch-

cock's as their favorite places to get
drinks and food. I can tell that His-
panic people work in the pine trees
because I can't read the labels on
many of the pieces of garbage due to
being in Spanish. I can tell that citi-
zens of Gilchrist County love to kill
animals which is evident by the deer
carcasses and hog remains that are
frequently dumped, and I am scared
to imagine what are in the big black
lawn bags that someone felt the need
to hurl onto the sides of my road.
The point of this letter is to remind
you that you live in a place of amaz-
ing beauty, but it is not that pretty
when you have to sift through all the
garbage to see it.

King James Version Is 400 Years Old
(Kent Heaton) ,

The year 2011 will mark the 400th birthday of the
King James Version Bible. Begun in 1604 the completed
version was printed in 1611. James I was king of England
in 1603 and at that time two translations of the Bible
were in use: the Geneva Bible was the most popular and
the Bishops' Bible would be found in most churches for
public reading. At the suggestion of John Reynolds (a
moderate Puritan scholar) King James set forth to bring
about a new translation of the scriptures. The result
would become known as the King James Version and in
40 years the King James Version would become more
popular than the Geneva Bible.
There is no doubt to the resilience of the poetic
simplicity of the KJV. It would take 250 years before the
first attempt would be made for a large scale revision of
the 1611 edition and others have followed. It would be
very difficult to read the 1611 edition of the KJV today in
our modern language. The King James Version today is
the result of two updated versions of the original 1611. In
1769 a revision was made of the KJV and then again in
1982. The opponents of using any translation other than
the KJV must decide which version is more authorized
than the other (1611? 1769? or 1982?).
While the KJV is a powerful translation of Holy Writ
it must also be understood that the KJV is not the
"authorized version" of the Lord. The use of the
"Authorized Version" did not come about at least until as
early as 1814 and does not suggest any special place in
the scheme of God's revealing word to man. Before the
KJV there were many translations of the Bible such as
the Vulgate (405), Wyclif (1382); Erasmus' NT (1516);
Tyndale (1526); Luther (1534); Coverdale (1535);
Matthew (1537); Great Bible (1539); Geneva Bible

(1560); Bishop's Bible (1568) and the Douay/Rheims
Bible (1609-1610)
A number of translation have followed the 1611 work
including the English Revised Version (1885); American
Standard Version (1901); Revised Standard Version
(1946); New American Standard (1964); New
International Version (1973); New King James Version
(1979) and the English Standard Version (2008).
It should be noted there are "translations that are not
translations and become nothing more than perverted
commentaries on specific doctrines. The New World
Translation, published by the Watchtower Bible and
Tract Society is an example of how the Bible can be
manipulated to teach the false doctrine of a specific
group. "The Living Bible" (1971) is a gross rendering of
Holy Scripture that becomes only a paraphrase of its
author Kenneth Taylor.
The Lord has always made His word available to the
common man in the common man language. English
was not the language of'the First Century disciples and
so we should not suppose the KJV was the language of
the Lord. From the days of Babel (Genesis 11) man has
been diverse in speech, and the revelation of God's mind
to man has been as diverse through "ach generation. The
power of the word of God is not the translation from
Hebrew/Greek to English (or what ever language) but
the translation of the Word (John 1) into the hearts of
men who will read and obey the words (2 Timothy
3:16-17) of the message of God. By the mercy of God
we can read and understand the will of God in simple
words of truth (John 17:17; Ephesians 3:1-5). The word
of God will endure until the Lord returns again the
second time (Hebrews 9:28).

Boy oh boy, I'm excited!
This weekend is the annual Quilt
and Old Time Craft Festival in Tren-
ton. The big event kicks off with
Gilchrist County's own version of
the Antique Road Show on Friday
evening from 5:30 until 7:00. So dig
around in the cupboard and pull out
grandma's old china platter or bring
in grandpa's old rocker that may have
been handed down through genera-
tions of his family and see what the
experts think they are worth. You just
never know how valuable your fam-
ily heirloom might be. I plan to dig
around through my stash and find a
treasure myself and head on down to
the old railroad depot for a fun night
From what I've heard the Gilchrist
County Chamber will be serving din-
ner as a fundraiser, and the Fanning
Springs Chamber is serving dessert.
Also, I believe the antique venders
will be set up on Friday evening so
we can all enjoy plundering through
their items before crowds arrive on
I've been a part of the Springhouse
Quilters Guild for several years now,
and the night group meets pretty
much every Tuesday night to sew
and fellowship. This year the Quilt
Festival will feature our group. This
means that the local quilt group will
have their quilts on display under the
depot on Saturday. The ladies have
been pulling out quilts and plan-
ning for the event for several months
They have also been sewing away
to make items for the Springhouse
gift shop which will be located next
door to the Gilchrist County Journal
office building in the former Trenton
Cafe building. Don't miss this gift

12. We will have a wide variety of
the sweetest, yummiest desserts
you could want. Make sure to stop
by and satisfy that sweet tooth and
plan on taking some home with you
too! There will brownies, cookies,
cakes, pies, candies and much more
to choose from. If you would like to
contribute your specialty, contact the
Chamber office at 463-9089 or 339-
2248 and let us know. This is one of
our fundraising events for the year
and it is always great to meet every-
Until next time, have a great

With only a few more cool evenings
in store for us, I tested and tweaked
this chili recipe and it's pretty good if
I must say so myself. Instead of serv-
ing chili with crackers, try making
cornbread or corn muffins.

1 pound of ground beef
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 16-ounce cans of dark red kidney
1 16-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
3 tablespoons chili powder
teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
(use less if you don't like the heat)
1 small can sliced mushrooms, op-
Brown the meat, add garlic, onions,
pepper, salt and pepper. Cook stirring
until vegetables are tender. Drain the
beans and rinse them well, add the
beans and remaining ingredients plus
about 1 cup water. Cover and simmer
for about 1 to 1 hours. You may
need to add a little extra water as the
chili cooks.

Madison Hodge student recognized by

School Board for spelling success

TES celebrates Dr. Seuss' Birthday
On Wednesday, March 2, 2011, Mrs. April and Mrs. Ashley's TES Pre-K class celebrated Dr. Seuss'
birthday. Back row, left to right are Mrs. Ashley, Bryan, Aidan, Austin, Christopher, Lonnie, Gaven, Mrs.
April, and front row, kneeling, are Ryan, Sophia and Camaron. There were "green eggs and ham" for
breakfast along with dress up, art projects, and cupcakes to end the day. A great time was had by all.

On back row are School Board members Rob Rankin (Chairman), Superintendent Don Thomas, Bob Clem-
ons, Julie Thomas and Michelle Carter, and on front row are Sherry Lindsey (BES Principal), Madison
Hodge, Sylvia Hodge and Bryan Hodge.

Spelling is a skill everyone needs,
but not all of us excel at. In a world
where spell-check is essential for
most, Bell Elementary School stu-
dent Madison Hodge has become an
expert at this talent. She has not only
proven herself at the school level, but
also in bigger contests as well.
For the past two years, Madison,
daughter of Bryan and Sylvia Hodge,
has won the BES Spelling Bee. This
year the championship word was ne-
cessity. Madison went on to compete
in Districts where she again came out
victorious. The winning word there:
android. This sent Madison on to
the Big Bend Regional Spelling Bee
where she competed against 11 other
districts in Tallahassee. She placed

When asked what she enjoys most
about competing, Madison says, "I
just enjoy being on stage spelling the
words with the other contestants."
But does she get nervous? "While on
stage I get very nervous," Madison
admits, "but after the practice round,
and a few more rounds, it wears
The Gilchrist County School
Board is extremely proud of this
exceptional speller; so is the Bell
Elementary School. Madison was
recognized there on March 1 for her
impressive accomplishments. The
Gilchrist County School Board mem-
bers wish Madison the best of luck as
we're sure she'll be back in the race
next year.

Tigers take three wins
to remain undefeated in
District play
By John M. Ayers
The Bronson Eagles baseball team
came to Trenton with the intent of
knocking off the hometown Tigers.
Bronson, led by first year coach Allen
Strickland, had beaten Dixie County
prior to meeting the Tigers.
Trenton's Hunter Williams took
the mound for the Tigers and pitched
well. He struck out 8, walked one
and gave up 3 hits and one earned
run. He pitched all 5 innings for the
undefeated Tigers while only facing
19 batters.
The Tigers at the plate pounded out
13 hits, 5 of them doubles. Clif Bry-
ant went 4 for 4 with a double, Kane
Crosby was 2 for 2 with a double,
Chance Brooks was 2 for 3 with a
double, and Caleb Smith and Hunter
Williams both doubled. The Tigers
won the game 12-2 in 5 innings and
improved to 5-0 in District play.
On Friday afternoon Trenton trav-
eled to Bell to face the Bulldogs. Lit-
tle did anyone know before the game
began that this would be a pitchers'
Bell. started former Trenton base-
ball player Darren Skawienski on the
mound. Skawienski baffled the Tiger
hitters all night. He struck out 13 and
walked none while only giving up 5
hits and 2 runs, both of them earned.
Bell -played great defense and made

no errors on the night. However,
Bell's bats were cold against Tren-
ton's senior pitcher Caleb Smith.
Smith threw the first no hitter of the
year for Trenton. He pitched all 7 in-
nings and struck out 8 while walking
one and hitting 3 batters.
Bell's Matthew Harrell scored the
only run for the Bulldogs and was
driven in by Skawienski. Both Har-
rell and Skawienski each had a stolen
The Tigers' Hunter Parrish had 2
hits, stole a base and scored a run.
Clif Bryant had one hit, stole 3 bases
and drove in both of the Trenton runs.
The Tigers improved their record to
6-0 and Bell fell to 0-9.
On Saturday, March 5, Trenton
hosted the Oak Hall Eagles at Tiger
Field. After playing Bell the night be-
fore in a very close game, the Tigers
seemed tired. Kane Crosby started
on the mound for the Tigers and was
relieved by Corbin Wiggins after 1
1/3 innings. Wiggins only faced four
batters before being relieved by Ste-
phen Smith. Smith pitched 2 outs in
the second, the third and fourth in-
nings, and was relieved by Chance
Brooks before getting an out in the
fifth inning. Brooks entered the game

with the score 7-8 and by the end of
the fifth inning the Eagles were ahead
10-8. In the bottom of the fifth the
Tigers rallied for 7 runs to go ahead
,15-8. But in the sixth inning the Ea-
gles scored 2 more runs on two Tren-
ton errors and an Eagle home run. In
the sixth inning, the Tigers added one
more to make the score 16-12 but
the Eagles weren't done. In the top
of the seventh, Oak Hall scored two
more runs to make the score 16-14.
With 2 outs and bases loaded, Brooks
faced Eagles' hitter McKinney, the
Eagle batter that homered in the sixth
inning. On a.full count, with runners
moving, Brooks got a swinging strike
out to end the inning.
The Tigers beat out sixteen hits.
Sophomore Hunter Parrish was 4 for
4 with a triple and 3 RBI's. Chance
Brooks was 3 for 5 with a home run
and 2 RBI's, Caleb Smith was 2 for 3
with a double and 2 stolen bases and
Ozie Parrish was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI's.
Hunter Williams was hit 3 times by 3
different Oak Hall pitchers. The Ti-
gers won 16-14 and improved their
record to 7-0.
The Tigers faced Hawthorne at
home on Tuesday and will travel to
Chiefland on Friday. Come out and
support the Tigers.

Kyle Perkins Tyrod Adams

Undercover drug buy

leads to arrests

By Carrie A. Mizell
A Gilchrist County Sheriff's inves-
tigator went undercover last week to
buy marijuana from two local men,
who have since been arrested and
charged with sale and delivery of a
controlled substance.
Deputy Wayne Dasher of the Gil-
christ County Sheriff's Office aided
in the arrest of Tyrod D. Adams, 24,
of 1107 SE 1st Street in Chiefland,
and Kyle A. Perkins, 22, of 1130 NE
15th Avenue in Trenton on Thursday,
March 3.
According to a press release is-
sued by Lt. David Aderholt of the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
Adams and Perkins drove in a vehi-
cle to an address in Trenton, so that
Perkins could sell marijuana.' At the
address, Perkins sold 27.8 grams of
marijuana to an undercover deputy.
After the transaction was completed,
Adams and Perkins left the Trenton
neighborhood. A traffic stop was
conducted by investigators from the
Sheriff's Office who subsequently ar-
rested both men.
Adams was charged with sale and
delivery of a controlled substance,
possession of more than 20 grams of
cannabis and principal in the first de-
gree. Perkins was also charged with
sale and delivery of a controlled sub-
stance and possession of more than
20 grams of cannabis. The following
day, additional charges were added to

Perkins' list of charges, including a
charge of sale and delivery of a con-
trolled substance and possession of
more than 20 grams of cannabis for a
transaction that occurred on Feb. 23,
Both Perkins and Adams appeared
before Levy County Judge James T.
Browning for first appearance. Ad-
ams was given a $30,000 bond and
Perkins bond was set at $55,000. At
press time, Adams was still being
held at the Gilchrist County Jail and
Perkins had bonded out of jail.
