How long has it been since youve visited with neighbors over a plate of Come out on Friday night to the Education Foundations all By Carrie A. Mizell God gave Tom and Kathy Fletcher a vision to plant a peach orchard and from it the Bell residents are donating the fruit of their labor to local food banks and churches. This summer, they plan to sell a portion of their peach harvest and give all the proceeds to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. After operating a horse rescue decided to plant a few fruit trees on their property north of Bell for family, friends and neighbors to enjoy. God had other plans, Kathy explained, and directed them to to feed not only their loved ones, but also the local community. God created an even grander orchard than we could have ever imagined, Kathy said. The Fletchers orchard consists acres. They have persimmons, plums, and nectarines, but the majority of the fruit trees, roughly 375 trees, are peaches. This year, Tom and Kathy expect half of their orchard to produce fruit. When the peaches are ripe this summer, Bread of the Mighty Food Bank in Gainesville will send a refrigerator truck and plenty of boxes to the Fletchers orchard. Eighty percent of the harvest will be given to Bread of the Mighty for distribution to local food banks Local peach growers give God the glory Bell residents Tom and Kathy Fletcher pledge proceeds to St. Jude In 2013, the Fanning Springs Easter Egg Hunt drew 300 children and this years event is expected to be just as big. Hop on over to Fanning Springs on Saturday, Apr. 12 and enjoy the fun! and churches. The remainder of the peaches will be picked and sold, with all proceeds going to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. Tom and Kathy expect the peaches to come in between mid May and mid June and plan to set up a stand at the Bell roadside park to sell their fruit. Were not looking to make a dime off of this, its our way of tithing, Tom explained. I think if we all helped each other out the world would be a more pleasant place. A Pennsylvania native, Tom said he was heavily involved in a lifestyle that included drugs and alcohol abuse, and he lost everything he had except for some wood working tools. When he moved to Gilchrist County, Tom said Charles and Netsie Lindsey let him live in a barn they have, and it was Charles who led him to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Charles had a peach tree that Tom admired, and from the discarded seeds of Charles peaches, Tom and Kathy got their own peach trees going, the variety they have since dubbed, Florida Netsie and Florida Charles. Tom pointed out Matthew 6:1921 which states, Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Kathy and I have put our savings in this, Tom said. This peach orchard would not be here today if it were not for God. All Anyone who needs peaches, or would like to volunteer to help with the picking and/or packaging of peaches for local food banks, or anyone who is St. Jude is asked to call Tom at (352) 278-2465. We can all be blessings to each other, Kathy stated. As Jesus said, love one another. We pray that God can bless others by this peach orchard, not just by the peaches as food to sustain us, but by Gods word that will sustain us forever. Old fashioned sh fry Friday night in Gilchrist Scholarships for a delicious meal and time of fellowship.

By Carrie A. Mizell The Gilchrist County Commissioners voted unanimously to raise the pay for paramedics on Monday, in an effort to attract more experienced applicants. Starting pay will go from $9.90 per hour to $10.50 per hour, with an increase of 60 cents per hour to current paramedics. According to Mitch Harrell, Gilchrist County Fire/ and taxes on ten current paramedic positions would be an estimated annual increase of $26,624. that the increase will put the county applicants during the hiring process, and help with retention of current employees. Harrell worked with County Administrator Bobby Crosby to compare Gilchrist Countys paramedic salary with that of surrounding counties, using the most current data available. While Gilchrist County will never be able to compete with Alachua County, where paramedics make $13.25 per hour, the pay increase will now be comparable to Hamilton and Union counties, both of which pay paramedics $10.50 per hour. Levy County pays paramedics $11.15 per hour and Dixie County is at $10 an hour with an added incentive of 10 cents per year of experience. Lafayette County pays paramedics $11.90 per hour. neighboring counties, but we want to be competitive, Crosby said. The Fire/EMS chief explained that Gilchrist County has lost a few paramedics to neighboring counties who pay more, but the real problem experience. package, if one of our goals is retention of quality paramedics, maybe we can consider some incentives to keep them here, Commissioner John work on this for budget time. Chief Harrell indicated that half of the funds required to cover the pay increase for paramedics would have to come out of the countys general reserve budget. The estimated cost of the pay increase for the remaining 2013-2014 budget year will be $13,312. The cost will be shared on some of the current paramedic personnel between EMS (85 percent) and Fire (15 percent). Paramedics get a pay increase to caution the Board about making salary changes like this in the middle of a budget year. Newton said funds are available to cover the pay increase. Ultimately, the county commissioners voted unanimously in favor of the paramedic pay increase, on a motion by Commissioner Kenrick Thomas and a second by Commissioner Sharon Akins Langford. --The Gilchrist County Commissioners approved a proposed lease agreement with ForVets, Inc. concerning Otter Springs Park. Under the 99 year lease, ForVets, Inc. will continue to open the park to the public seven days a week and operate under a mutually agreed upon, annual management plan. According to Dan Cavanah, ForVets, Inc. intends to provide rehabilitation services for veterans at Otter Springs. Cavanah expressed frustration on Monday during the Gilchrist County Commission meeting that it has taken eight months for Gilchrist County and the Suwannee River Water Management District to work out details of the lease with ForVets, Inc. The county administrator explained that the chairman of the board for the Suwannee River Water Management District, Don Quincey, has been out of the country and was not expected to sign the deed for Otter Springs over to Gilchrist County until Tuesday. After the deed has made its way to Gilchrist County, Clerk of Court Todd Newton and County Administrator Bobby Crosby planned to conduct take over Otter Springs. Commissioner Kenrick Thomas said there, it will be a blessing to Gilchrist County. --Sheriff Bobby Schultz and Lt. Sheryl Brown, corrections commander, addressed the county commissioners during the April 7 meeting about inmates medical expenses. Lt. Brown indicated that due to a rise in medical expenses this year, with three inmates in particular, tripling the budget cap of $10,000 for medical. Extended stays in the hospital and high prescription costs for these inmates were cited. Several county commissioners expressed disbelief that there is no Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement available to the county. Essentially, once they are arrested, the county is solely responsible for providing inmates with medical coverage. Clerk of Court Todd Newton explained that once the $10,000 deductible is met the countys catastrophic insurance will kick in to cover the inmates medical expenses. Jackie Johnson, Gilchrist County inmates medical expenses havent been too high over the last two or three years, and it seems that the rise in medical expenses at the jail comes in waves. --County Commissioner D. Ray Harrison Jr. told his fellow commissioners that he is very upset that Causseaux, Hewett & Walpole, a Gainesville-based engineering project, had not advertised for bids in the Gilchrist County Journal and that several local paving companies did not know about the project. The project, which is funded by a Community Development Block Grant, required the engineers advertise for bids in a regional newspaper and they did, in The Gainesville Sun However, county publicize the call for bids in Gilchrist Countys local newspaper. That was not done in March. Since then, Commissioner Harrison said he has learned that local paving contractors, Conintued to page 12 Peaches are growing quickly on the Fletchers trees north of Bell.

Like most Gilchrist County residents I have good memories of the Beast Feast, which was held for almost 20 years in our county. The funds raised at this annual event went to support our graduating seniors with scholarships as they headed off to college and also paid for teacher mini grants. After years of hard work the Education Foundation took a year off from the Beast Feast last year. I was very disappointed to hear that there would be no Beast Feast in 2013. What grew to become our big countywide reunion was not to be. Frankly, for me, it was never about the unusual game served at the Beast Feast year after year. It was always about having the opportunity to fellowship with all the residents I so looked forward to seeing each year. The Beast Feast gave Gilchrist County residents, and people from the surrounding counties a chance to support a very worth cause, as well as visit with friends and neighbors. The good news is, we have that chance again this year. On Friday night the Education Foundation will Agricultural Complex, or as we all know it, the rodeo arena between Bell and Trenton. Come out on Friday night and support our youth, while enjoying a lot of good old time fellowship and a cooks in the county will be on hand Its a fact, Gilchrist County has some of the best young people found anywhere and its nice to have the opportunity to come out and support them and their future education by attending this worthy event. We are truly blessed to have had an organization such as the Education Foundation to head up fundraising events for our youth and teachers for so many years in Gilchrist County. It seems like the least we can do is buy tickets and attend Friday nights event, which hopefully will return again next year. I hope to see you there! --This weeks recipe is kind of like a homemade hamburger helper dish that the children are sure to love.

Watermelon and dairy cows cer tainly, but olives Thats a common response to news that Piedmont plans to grow olives on property they own just north of Trenton. It could be next year before the olive trees go in, since employees are just now clearing the land, but ol ives it is. Personally, Im delighted at the news and look forward to the day when I can cook with olive oil made from olives grown in Gilchrist. My husband Adam and I stumbled duced olive oil from Georgia Ol ive Farms in 2012, and weve been hooked ever since. In 2011, Georgia Olive Farms har olives grown east of the Mississippi River from their orchards near Lake land, Georgia. Not since the 1800s had olives been grown in the state of Georgia. The Shaw family, owners of Georgia Olive Farms, produce a true extra virgin olive oil that goes from 24 hours. The family sells their olive oil online and in a number of small retail stores throughout the southeast. They also sell olive trees and natural ly grown, white corn ground grits. I have no idea how one family has time to grow olives, corn, cotton, peanuts and wheat, and also manages to make olive oil and grind grits. Clearly, I need to get up a little earlier each morning if Im going to catch up with these innovative farmers. They are Proverbs 31 kinda people! Georgia Olive Farms also sells ol ive trees and encourages the develop ment of the olive oil industry in the southeast by increasing their own orchards and supporting farmers and investors who have the same vision. Not long ago I had the opportunity to meet Jason Shaw, who works not only as a partner in his familys olive farm venture, but he also serves in the Georgia House of Representatives. It was a pleasure to shake his hand and thank him for the wonderful olive oil his family produces. When asked about the olive busi ness, Jason Shaw jokingly said, Im trying to cure our dependence on for eign oil. Amen to that!

Is it just me or is anyone else having a tough time adapting to daylight savings time? I do love the extra daylight hours in the evening, but I cant seem to get enough sleep to make up for the hour we lost a few and was out the door in 20 minutes, even managing to get my daughter to school on time, but then spent the rest of the morning trying to get my brain in gear. Since I obviously didnt have time to get any wise counsel from my Bible this morning, I grabbed it and my devotional book on my way out the door. One of my absolute favorite things about Jesus is that He is always right on time-even when Im not. As I spent the morning being frustrated about being behind on my to-do list, I convinced myself that this day was doomed to be unproductive. By noon, I had barely crossed anything off my list. So I grabbed my Bible and book to at least get that done while I ate lunch. Through my devotion book, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, this is what Jesus had to say to me: A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me (Jesus), even if many things remain undone at the end of the day. Do not let your todo list become an idol directing your life. I am not even kidding. To be honest, I didnt really mean, surely God wants us to be productive, right? Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus friends Mary and Martha. Their story is found in Luke 10:38-42. To make a short story even shorter, Jesus and his disciples were visiting and Martha was serving them. Her younger sister Mary sat listening to Him teach, which put Martha behind schedule. I couldnt help but wonder if she overslept. Martha then complained to Jesus, to which He replied, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken from her. So maybe spending time with Him should be our priority over the to-do list. Even when we get behind schedule! The awesome thing about how His timing works is that if I had not overslept, I would have read this about 6 a.m. this morning over a great cup of coffee, nodded in agreement, and closed the book. Then I would have gone about my day, probably being very productive, checking things off my list and perhaps even a few things from tomorrows list as well. I would have totally missed the truth of that to-do list being an idol directing my life. Being frustrated over the events of the morning and my own limitations revealed that I was doing exactly this very thing. I think Jesus timing in Marthas life taught her a very similar lesson. Lets try to accept each day, HOWEVER of it. Submitted Spring Ridge Church, located on CR#340 (Poe Springs Road), 7 miles west of High Springs, announces its special Easter events schedule.

Log Cabin Quilters Submitted The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs day, Apr. 3 at the Levy County Quilt Museum at 11050 NW 10th Ave. Mary was in to sandwich a baby quilt. Donna brought in her completed lap blanket. Others brought in projects to work on. The ladies had a great time look ing at material that had been donated during the week. These donations of fabric and other craft related items help fund the Museums needs. A group of quilters and friends from the RV Resort in Williston were in for a visit to the area. We hope they will return next winter and join us. Ida Mae Watsons family donated the display cabinet that was in the beauty shop for years. Russell made this cabinet and weve found just the place for it. After Russell died, Ida Mae made replicas of her child hood home and the home that she and married. Her childhood home had the separate kitchen and eating area. My grandfather had a home like this with a wood cook stove and he prob ably had an ice box before Grandma got an electric refrigerator and stove. Thanks again Watson family for thinking of us. Come out and see the houses. Greg and the boys were out this week. The yard is looking great. The boys were able to put up more of the quilt blocks on the porch. Thanks Lancaster. Come out to see the changes. If youre in the swings or rocking chairs on the porch, you can listen to the birds singing. New chapter of American Military Retired Association River Basin. per year.

After a slow recession of water levels over the last few days, Peaton said the Santa Team Coordinator UF Child Protection Team April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the perfect time to remind and Levy counties that we are forming a Child Advocacy Center to serve the children and families from this area. There have been several presentations in the community to various organizations regarding this project. The child maltreatment statistics are startling. Nationally, a report of child abuse is made every ten seconds. The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect in the United States in 2008 was $124 billion. Child abuse occurs at every socio-economic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education. Some Tri-County area wants and needs a Child Advocacy Center studies indicate that 1 in 10 children suffer from child maltreatment. To put this in perspective there are 670 children currently enrolled in Trenton Elementary School; according to the national average that would be about 67 local children that suffer abuse and neglect. While we know that child abuse and neglect will never be completely eradicated, our response to the victims and their families can be improved Gilchrist and Levy counties travel to a child friendly facility in Gainesville. While the facility is accommodating, it is a bit of a distance. We can do better. A Child Advocacy Center is something the community wants and needs. It will be modeled after the centers throughout the state and nation. The Child Advocacy Center will provide a safe nurturing environment where child victims of abuse and neglect can be interviewed child maltreatment. Under the same roof, the family will be provided counseling, case management and victim advocacy to help navigate the challenging systems involved with the investigation of child maltreatment. We all have a role to play in ensuring the Child Advocacy Center serving the tri-county becomes a reality. Currently, we are looking for a building to be donated. We will also be developing a working board to oversee this project. You can be part of this project by donating, advocating or volunteering. 6806 if you are interested in learning more about this worthwhile project. meeting to speak for the company. --Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners will be Monday, Apr. 21 at 4 p.m. Meetings are held in the BOCC Meeting Facility, which is located at 210 South Main Street in Trenton.
