Bristol home gutted by blaze
A three-bedroom wood frame home was gutted by fire Friday
night in Bristol. No one was injured and the cause has yet to
be determined, according to Bristol Fire Chief Dale Hobby.
The rental home was occupied by the Dishong family: two
teens were home at the time. Their mother, Norma Dishong,
had just left to pick up her husband at work and when the
couple returned minutes later, they found the house on fire,
according to Hobby. "It was all over in about ten minutes," he
said. The state fire marshal's office is investing the cause.
The home located on Hwy. 12 North at the corner of
Faircloth Road and across from Duggar's Barber Shop on
Hwy. 12 North is owned by Hinton Johnson of Bristol.

Jackson Co. men arrested after deer killed on posted property

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Two men were arrested after a
Calhoun County landowner who
was hunting on his own posted
property went to investigate when
he heard a shot being fired.
Bennett Eubanks was on his
property Feb. 2 in the Ocheesee
area off State' Road 69 North
around 4:30 p.m. when he heard.
a gun go off, according to a re-
port from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department.
The report gave the following
Eubanks walked out to State
Road 69 where he noticed a truck
drive past slowly a couple of
times before pulling off the road.
As he approached the vehicle, he
realized no one was inside.
He waited at the truck for the
driver to return. After a few min-
utes, he heard two men talking
as they walked in his direction,
coming from behind the eight-
foot fence that surrounds the

property. '
Eubanks recognized one of
the men as Michael Allen Mon-
eyham, 44, of Grand Ridge.
Moneyham walked up and put his
rifle in the front seat of the truck.
When Eubanks confronted him,
Moneyham .ran to the front of
the vehicle and tried to hide. He
came out when Eubanks called
him by name.
As the. two talked, Eubanks
noticed a second man later
identified as Charles Kehneth
Folsom, 36, of Sneads hiding
in the ditch.
Folsom then walked up to join
the other men. He was carrying
a set of antlers from a nine-point
whitetail-deer. The report noted
that the antlers were not from a
freshly killed deer.
The two men told Eubanks
they were driving by and saw the
antlers through the fence and had
to stop and retrieve them, but did
not explain why they had taken a

gun in with them.
After stating that he was going
to call the sheriff's department,
Folsom told Eubanks he had been
hunting on his land and had Mon-
eyham drop him off. He added
that he hadn't killed anything.
Eubanks said he had to get
some antlers from his tree stand
and would meet back at that site
with the men in a short while.
When he returned, they were
Around 7:30 that evening, In-
vestigator Michael Bryant went

to the scene after talking with
Mbneyham, who gave a different
account of the incident.
Soon after Bryant arrived at
the site he found a large eight-
point whitetail buck that had
been killed in the past few hours.
The deer had been hidden in the
bushes outside the fence. A hole
was found in the fence, which
is believed to have been used
by the two suspects to enter the
Bryant was joined at the scene
by Investigator E.J. Castaneda of

the Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion. The deer was seized and
the area photographed.
The officers later interviewed
Moneyham in Jackson County.
Although he was evasive and
contradicted Eubanks' statement,
he did admit that he dropped off
Folsom and took the antlers from
inside the fence. He claimed to
have no knowledge of the deer.
Moneyham was charged with
armed trespassing. Folsom was
charged with trespassing.

face serious health issues, they

are willing to pay the price. We
all do our best to avoid the un-
dertaker and the final trip in the
long, black limousine.
If you are rich, then health care
is. not a problem. The rich can
pay for health and long-term care
insurance. But most people are,
one payday away from poverty.
Lose the job, and they can't pay
the rent much less the cost-of
medical insurance.
Politicians offer medical sav-
ings accounts and-tax credits to
offset the cost of health insur-
ance, but these programs mean
nothing for a person without a
job, or minimum wage workers
who need every dime to pay the
rent and buy groceries.
To save money, Governor Jeb
Bush has a plan to privatize the
state Medicaid program. I'm not
opposed to privatizing govern-.
-ment operations. Private com-
panies can guard the entrances
to military bases just as well as
a military policeman can, but
privatizing healthcare is a bit
more complicated than hiring
gate guards.
Governor Bush's plan to priva-
tize Medicaid is a windfall to the'
healthcare and insurance indus-
tries just as President Bush's
plan ,to privatize part of Social
Security is a boom to the finan-
cial services industcl. It must run
in the family..
If the governor's Medicaid
plan passes, which it will with
a willing Republican state leg-
islature, then poor people will
receive basic care and not much
more. The state will pay a set pre-
mium to insurance companies for
each Medicaid client, the amount
to be determined by individual
health risk. Smokers might want
to watch out for that clause in
their contract.
The the.oryuis that the indi-

vidual can select a plan of choice,
but as I read the information from
the governor's Web page, the
individual will go to the doctor
or HMO of the insurance compa-
ny's choice. There is maximum
benefit for catastrophic illnesses.
So. don't getreal sfek, or if you
do, then die soon. No lingering
illnesses that result in big medi-
cal bills..
My mother died recently at
the age of 95. She was one of
the millions of widowed women
in America that live on a below
poverty level income. Before
moving to a nursing home, she
was spending about a third of her
monthly income on a Medicare
health insurance supplement and
prescription drugs.
She spent the last four years
of her life in a nursing home with
the cost paid by Medicaid. She
paid her part of the bill, which
was all of her monthly Social
Security and her small pension,
except for $35. I paid all of her
other monthly costs.
The monthly fee for the nurs-
ing home was about $4,300. Most
nursing homes charge $4,000 to
$5,000 per month. How many
people can afford to pay the full
cost of long-term health care?
Only the rich.
The Republicans will never
explain to people that they have
to pay taxes if they want Medi-
care and Medicaid benefits.
Republicans will continue to cut
taxes and reduce benefits causing
programs like Medicaid to die a
slow death..
Privatizing Medicaid with the
intent of providing better health-
care is a good thing. Privatizing
Medicaid just to reduce costs
while at the same time reducing
taxes read that as reducing
cash flow is a bad thidge.

Fulfilling our obligation to Americans

from US. Senator Bill Nelson
Congress has a moral ob-
ligation to protect its citizens
- whether that protection comes
as a guaranteed source of retire-
ment income or a xlell-equipped
military. Right now we have oc-
casion to better protect Ameri-
cans by strengthening Socral Se-
curity for future generations and
bolstering military capabilities.
The president recently has
proposed diverting money from
the Social Security Trust Fund
to risk in the stock market. But
privatizing the program won't
fix it. Linking benefits to %ola-

tile stock prices would shift risk
to retirees, disabled Americans
and their survivors.
We can't fulfill our obligation
to protect Americans by weak-
ening the safety net of a secure,
guaranteed benefit. But we need
to strengthen it like we've done
. time. and again in the past. I
look forward to working with
the president and other members
of Congress to fix the system
In addition to addressing fu-
ture shortfalls in the program,
I'm drafting legislation that
w would give Americans tax breaks

to save for retirement above
and beyond Social Security. As
a member of the Senate Special
Committee on Aging, I intend to
play a key role in any debate on
changes to Social Security and
separate retirement saving pro-
I'm also working on another
major issue facing us today: pro-
tectingAmericans from future ter-
ror attacks by strengthening our
nation's defenses. For example,
I filed legislation in the Senate
this Januar) that would require
the Na\N to maintain a fleet of at
least 12 aircraft carriers.

I offered the bill after the
Pentagon proposed reducing the
Navy's carrier force from 12 to
11 by retiring the Jacksonville-
based USS John F. Kennedy ear-
ly as part of a Defense Depart-
ment cost-cutting plan. I don't
think it makes sense to weaken
our nation's defenses like this
when the country is fighting a
global war on terrorism.
I'm also working to protect
Americans-from another pos-
sible Pearl Harbor-like disaster.
Last month, I launched an effort

to move one of the Navy's four
nuclear aircraft carriers, based
in Norfolk, Virginia, to Jack-
sonville's Mayport Naval Sta-
tion. Right now% nearly half the
country's nuclear carrier fleet is
based in one location. History
tells us this poses a great secu-
rity threat. Mo' ing a nuclear
aircraft carrier to NIMa port is yet
another way we in Congress can
fulfill our obligation to protect
U.S. citizens.

O A AM O 3OOF "--B.

from U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd


Social Securit provides income support to 46 million
retirees, including 111,000 in the 2nd district of Florida. as
well as surn i\ or.s, dependents and disabled workers. Keep-
ing this vital program intact, for those who depend on it to-
day and in the future, is a commitment I will not ignore. In
his State of the. Union Address, President Bush effectively
laid out the long term problems facing Social Security, and I
commend him for tackling the crucial task of reforming the
Social Security system. I have cosponsored the Bipartisan
Retirement Security Act ith Jim Kolbe (R-AZi to preserve
and sustain the Social Security program. and I ami pleased
the President has embraced manr of the principles of our
While modermnzing Social Securit) is absolutely essen-
tial, no plan should affect current retirees or those nearing
retirement. My plan, the Bipartisan Retirement Security
Act, does not affect anyone 55 years of age or older. The
Social Security program needs tobe reformed so that future
generations can enjoy the benefits of this invaluable pro-
gram, and therefore, only future generations should feel the
effects of reform. We have a moral obligation to protect the
benefits that have been promised to current retirees, and our
plan recognizes this responsibility\ and fulfills this promise.
Let me tell i ou n hat our plan does not do:
*Our plan does not reduce benefits for anyone near re-
tirement (55 or older) or currTent retirees.
*Our plan does not increase pas roll tax rates. -
Although we cannot ignore that structural reform of the
SocialSecurity program is-necessary, any changes to Social
Security must preserve the full benefits promised to current
retirees and near-retirees. The Kolbe-Boyd plan does not:
make any changes to the benefits, promised to current retir-
ees or those nearing the retirement age.
Now let me tell ou what our plan does do:
*Our plan preserves existing benefits for current and
*Our plan increases the rate of return' for all workers by
establishing the opportunity for all Americans to create
*Our plan strengthens the government safety\ net for low-
income w workers through a minimum benefit prot vision.
*Our plan provides individuals with ow nership of and
control over; part of their retirement assets-including the
freedom to invest in safe, risk-free Treasuiy securities.
I will not support any plan that alters, the benefits that
current retirees expect and are entitled to. The Kolbe-Boyd
Bipartisan Retirement Security Act is a plan to ensure that
tomorrow's retirees have a secure furuie. and in no wa\ af-
fects cunent retirees or those nearing retirement. Current
retirees and those nearing retirement should be guaranteed
every penny of their promised Social Security benefits. They
paid for their benefits and they should receive them. Current
retirees and near-retirees have spent a lifetime putting a part
of their income into Social Security with the belief that this
money will be returned to them upon retirement. We must
=honor this commitment

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Ediaor
When 93-year-old Jimmie
Kingry Waldorff took her place
in the rumbleseat of her son's
1930 Ford Model A Roadster
for Althlia's Homecoming Pa-
rade Friday, it brought back
some memories.
There was a time. she said.
"-\hen she could have easily
jumped in. But Frida., she
needed little help. "Igot t\\o

-give me a push on my behind."
she laughs.

It \\ as 1928 and she \\as 16 \ears old. The team
made the trip in tro cars. much like the one she
rode in during last w week's parade. "That \\ as before-

explaining that there were cox\s all along the road
and the cars had to stop often. "We bumped into

S weren't traveling \ery fast, the profusion of \%an-

The Altha team r\as staying at a private home
that night in Gaines\ille and their hosts had pre-
pared a big pre-game meal. complete \iith a des-.

meal before a game and no sweets.

When they returned to their hosts'home, they discovered
that dates had been arranged for them that evening. But

She said she still remembers the name of the boy she

good that strawberry shortcake was.
In 1928 .girls'basketball games were-abig event inAl-
Lha. "We had a wonderful time," said Miss Jimmie. "We
didn't lose a game that ear." If fact, she onl\ remembers
one loss from the previous year and it was to Bristol. The
games in those days were played outside and when the
Calhoun County girls crossed the river to play, they had
a difficult time in the Liberts Count\ sahd. she said.
She started playing basketball in the eighth grade, al-
though the team was comprised of high school students.'
Often, they \were short a player or two. In those days,
she explains, "Parents thought it was too rough a game
for their daughters and would keep them out." She \\as
more than happy to fill in when% er there was an oppor-
-tu itY to-pla'y. -.
i .t : .x ,i .- i '


She said if her father had
pulled her off the team, "I
think I'd have quit school."
The game was a lot differ-
ent back then for girls' bas-
ketball teams. Each team had
six players two centers,
two forwards and two guards,
explains Miss Jirmnie's son,
Maxie Waldorff. The court
was divided into three sec-
tions, and two players stayed
in each section. "The guards
would guard the opponents'
shooters and toss to their
centers at center court," he
explained. The centers would
pass it on down to the for-
wards. "They couldn't run
from one end to the other like
they do today," he said "I
guess they thought the girls-
were too dainty to be running
that much."
The team had plenty of
support. Waldorff noted
that when his mother's team
played in the state champion-

ship, "the\ had half of the county down there."
A Marianna man took an interest in the team and
made them a offer. "Judge Amos Lewis promised us
a banquet each time we won," Miss Jimmie said. In
1928, the girls enjoyed many fine meals throughout
their undefeated season.

Miss Jimmie can sum up her philosophy of life in
two sentences: "I've always enjoyed life. No matter
what I do, I have a good time doing it." Much of
that attitude was developed as a young girl when
she was under the direction of Coach Katheryn
Bridges of Blountstown, who led Waldorff's team
on to the state championship. The team worked hard
and it paid off. Now, 77 years later, she credits her
coach's direction with giving her a good founda-
tion in life.
"We practiced every day," she said. Coach Bridg-
es "made us eat right and live right...she didn't want
us to eat sweet stuff." There were other rules, too.
, "We .couldn't stay up at night and she wouldn't al-
low any of the girls to date until after the game."
She explained, "We needed our rest and sleep to
be good players. And we were good."
Their coach was an important part of their lives.
"She was a good coach and we were all crazy

about her." she said, adding that she had hoped to one day
have a daughter that she could name Katherine. She had
three sons, but eventually "I got a daughter-in-lay, named

Not long after that championship game. she got married.
She and her husband. George Waldorff. had 75 years together
before he died three years ago at the age of 97. "I've had a
full life." she said. In 1940, she and her husband opened the
hardware store in Altha. which is now run by her grandsons,
Jim Waldorff and Scott Waldorff. After her \ youngest son left
home, she went to nursing school and \ as later employed at
Calhoun General Hospital for 14 \ears.
She and her husband shared a passion for fishing and she
still loves to drop a line in the river \ hen she can. Her sons
and grandsons take turns accompany ing her. Just last year
she bought a new .fishing boat and motor.
"The fishingest trip I ever had was at Ammonia Lake. It
was so low there was just a stream of water," she said. She
and her husband caught 50 bream each. "They were so big
you had to take them with both hands." The\ took the fish -
to the hospital and everyone enjoyed their catch the neX tda\,.
"I've had a lot of good fishing trips," she added. -
Today, she still keeps house and drives "but just to the
grocery store and the hairdresser's in Aliha."
She credits her good health and long\ iit to the fact that
she doesn't drink alcohol, never smoked and "I hate pills."
She takes onl\ one vitamin.a day. When she \as a little girl.

on the back porch, threw the pill a,%ay and drank the water.
I don't think she ever suspected." She added. "People today
take too man, pills. I don't abuse my body. drugs dull the
mind." The only exception she'd consider is "if they made
a smart pill...I might tr) that'. .

She is the only surviving member among her six sisters
and one brother. The family moved to Altha from Cotton-
wood. Malbama when she was six months old. Her 21-year-
old brother died the year she was born.
She recalls the first time she met her husband. They were
at AMtha School. She was 12. "I \\as reading a book. sitting
on a bench in front of the school when he came along and
sat beside me, know ing that m\ teacher \wouldn't let a bo\
and girl sit side by side." When the teacher made her get
up and move. "I hit him on the head with my book." Four
years later, the\ married.
She has man\ fond memories of her school da\ s. she w as
mischievous young girl. One time. a hallway chase got her
in trouble. "I had just rubbed an old cold biscuit on a boN's
face good and he didn't like it. We \were running 90) miles
an hour down that hall. like two y earnings." she said. They
made the mistake of running past the principal's office. "I
-guess you know I got to whip y'all," the principal said. "We
were pretty big to be w\\hipped." she said, but they went into
the office. The principal had his own w\a, of dealing ,with
them. "He took his belt off and banged it against the wall
about three times." she said. To keep up the charade; the
two wa.Nyward students "left out crying."

When her great-grandson accompanied her to the Alha
gym during homecoming and learned about her role in
the school's history, he said, "Grandma, I didn't know you
played basketball."
That comment got her attention and she thought of how
she wished she'd know n more about her o\\ n parents. After
her father died. her older sisters told her he had traveled
to Europe as a young man while making a living shooting
pool. "I'd give anything to know about that trip," she said.
She was only seven N\ hen her mother died. But thanks to
her involvement in last week's Homecoming festivities, her
great-grandchildren have gotten a glimpse into their own
family and community history.

Altha School Celebrates


Students from Altha School's past and
present gathered to celebrate homecoming
last week with a parade through town.
Along with numerous pageant winners, the
Homecoming King and Queen and their court
as well as some distinguished alumni from
1928 and 1932 took part. There were plenty
of furry friends along for the ride, too. The
Altha Wildcat mascot rode with the Junior
Class while McGruff the Crime Dog had his
own little bright red car. Smoky Bear greeted
parade watchers from the back of a pickup as
he made a slow trip along the parade route.
(There was plenty of school spirit in evidence
as everyone celebrated another year in the
school's long history.

Spring pictures to be taken Feb. 23

Last Week, as many people know,
was a huge week for Altla School.
The whole homecoming week at
Altha was a big success, because of
many activities the students partici-
pated in. One of the highlights of the
week was the woman-less beauty
pageant. Eight of the senior boys
took part, showing off their beauty
in various ways. Eight of the senior-
girls dressed up as boys to escort
the "girls" on the stage. Some of the
girls had way too much fun, dancing
and shaking in their hilarious cos-
tumes. Among these women were
Lloyd Williams, AKA Lucy Merle,
Homecoming King Brad Neel, AKA
Lafonda Ridinghood, Rex Hansford,
AKA Roxanne,-and T.J. Lewis, AKA
T-Lo. All of these ladies did a great
job in representing Altha School.
However, when everyone thought
all the contestants were finished, a
huge surprise broke out, and all the
students in the stands gasped.
The last contestant of the pag-
eant was the magnificent and beau-
tiful Coach Keene, AKA Private
First Class Gemstone, who was
absolutely breathtaking. Then, the
crowd decided who the most beau-
tiful woman-less woman was. The
lucky winner, and Miss AHS 2005,
just happened to be the gorgeous La-
fonda Ridinghood, also known to the
rest of the world as Brad Neel. He
did a great job portraying Little Red
Riding Hood % ith his escort. the Big
Bad Wolf. He really enjoyed sharing
his picnic "goodies" with everyone.
Still, some people would say Private
Gemstone is jealous of not getting-
the title. Who knows? Coach, there
is always next year!

This week at Altha Public School
was Spirit Week. Besides all of the
usual games and money raising that
is associated with Spirit Week there
were costumes; tons of them in ev-
ery color of the rainbow. The most
creative in my opinion, was Decade
Day. On this day students dressed
up as their favorite band member or
idol from the past. Students were not
the only ones who were in the spirit
teachers were involved just as much.

FWC announces top striper and hybrid bass honey holes

from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Bass anglers don't have to
hang up their fishing rods for the
winter just because Florida's leg-
endary largemouths pretty much
come down with lockjaw when
the weather gets too cool. Fall
and winter months offer the best
striped bass and hybrid bass fish-
ing here in the state that bills it-
self as the Fishing Capital of the
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has some tips for anglers
who would like to go after these
monster fish that scientists call
"morones" (because of their
scientific family name, "Moroni-
"In Florida, morones keep to
freshwater," said FWC fisheries
biologist Rick Long. "Atlantic
and Gulf saltwaters are too warm
for them."
Striped bass stripers for short,
can get enormous. The state re-
cord is a 42.25 pounder, bagged
in the Apalachicola River in
1993. Anglers catch stripers on
heavy bait-casting or open-faced
spinning tackle with 12- to 25-
pound test line. For big stripers,
live shad or small eels are the best
baits. For smaller stripers, yellow
or white 1/8- to 1 1/2-ounce jigs
are good baits, and so are plastic
twitch baits and poppers for sur-
face fishing and also spoons.
Sunshine bass a hybrid prod-
uct ofartificially crossing female
white bass with a male striper -
also are among the heavyweight
morones in Florida's waters. The
FWC stocks a million of them in
fish management areas and other
public waters every year. So far,
the state record is 16.31 pounds
That one came out of Lake Semi-
nole in 1985. Sunshine anglers
use lighter gear than striper fish-
ermen and many of them favor
lures that resemble shad. Other
popular baits include live min-
nows, live or dead shrimp and
chicken liver, fished on the bot-
tom. :
"White bass are smaller, but
they are scrappy fighters on light
tackle." Long said. "The\'l liii
flies, spinners, small plugs or.
minno 's.
The state record t hite bass is
4.69 pounds, and it came out of
(where else but?i the Apalachic-
ola River in 1982.
FWC fisheries biolo ist said
the most productive morone fish-
ing in Florida in 2005 will be:
1. The Apalachicola River/
Lake Seminole Thi s the
home of all three state record
morones. In, the lake. stripers
and sunshine .bass congregate
along tie old river channels and
near the dam in fall and winter.
: They migrate up Georgia's rivers
in the spring. In the river, stripes
a- nd sunshine bass range from
the dam to the coast during fall
and %winter around pilings. deep
channels and drop-offs. Larger
ones hang around the dam in the
jg ad cnoai9,h. htb,
jigs and crankbaits. -White bass

feed in schools, and they like live
crayfish and freshwater shrimp.
2. Lake Talquin/Ochlockonee
River This system produces
lots of 10- to 20-pound stripers
that take to live shad, jigs and
spoons. White bass, rebounding
from recent drought, historically
approach state record size. They
are all over the place in the fall
and winter and migrate to the
dam in the spring.
3. St. Johns River The FWC
doesn't stock the river with sun-
shine bass anymore, but it still
has a few. Stripers are a differ-
ent story with 8- to 12-pound fish
showing up regularly.. Striped
bass move throughout the river in
fall and winter. The best spots to
catch them are around jetties, the
bombing ranges in Lake George,
the lower Oklawaha River, Buf-
falo Bluff, Shands Bridge, Buck-
man and other bridges in Jackson-
ville. The big stripers congregate
in cool-water creeks in the sum-
mer. Live shad and shiners, jigs
and shad-imitating crankbaits are
the baits to use in this river.
4. .Blackwater/Yellow rivers
- In this northwest Florida area,
the. FWC stocks these waters
with stripers every year. The best
fishing is in the upper Blackwa-
ter Bay, near the river mouths in
the fall and winter and upstream
in the summer. Sometimes, the
best time to. go is at night. Be
prepared to bag 10-, 20- or even
30-pound striped bas Use live
mullet, menhaden or shrimp for
bait. Shad-imitating lures also
5. Choctawhatchee River- The
FWC stocks this river with strip-
ers and sunshine bass. -The main
fishery is between: SR 20 and
Choctawhatchee Bay in Walton
and Washington counties during
fall and winter. The baits to use
are live finger mullet, shad and
menhaden. During cold t weather,
anglers use shad-imitating lures
to bag fish from surface-feeding
schools. During summertime,
-the fish seek out cool-% after tribu-
6. Escambia Rii er The FWC,
has-begun -stocking this ri\er an-
nuall.. alternating stnped bass
and sunshine bass Anglers catch
both species in the lo% er 10 niiles
of the river during fall and inm-
ter. The fish migrate up-rier in
the spring. Da\nii and dusk are.

In Panama City Beach on Feb.
2. the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved -t new rule that
will grant small-acreage farmers
the same latitude larger, growers
have in controlling nuisance deer
on their property during the hunt-
ing season.
Previously, only landow\ ners
with more than 640 acres could
get permits to take antlerless
deer during the hunting season.
Antlerless deer include does and
bucks w ith visible antlers less*
than five inches -lon.'

prime times for striper fishing,
especially on a falling tide. In the
lower tidal part of the river, points
of land extending into the river
are good fishing spots. The best
baits on this river are live mullet
and menhaden, shad- or mullet-
imitating lures, live shrimp and
twister-tail type jigs.
7. St. Marys River Striped
bass are the most popular sport
fish in the St. Marys River and
connected waterways. The FWC
stocks the St. Marys with strip-
ers, but it also gets some migrat-
ing fish from the St. Johns River.
Stripers tend to spend the winter
in the lower river and move north
above U.S. 17 in the spring. On
the St. Marys, anglers bag strip-
ers between 1-95 and the town
of St. Mlarn s near the mouths of
the larger tributaries, along deep
banks and around the 1-95 Bridge
Pilings. On the Nassau River,
which is connected to the St.
Marys, striped bass hang around
the confluence with Thomas
Creek to below U.S. 17 around
Pearson Island. In the summer,
stripers congregate in tributar-
ies with cool-water discharge.
Trolling along or casting to steep
banks with jigs or shad-imitating
lures is the way to go on this' riv-
er. Live shrimp work too.
8. Eagle Lake This is a 200-
acre reclaimed phosphate pit
in Hamilton County. It's a fish
management area that the FWC
stocks with 50-100 sunshine bass
per acre anniiall The lake's
abundance of shad nurtures sun-
shine bass to 6 or 7 pounds in two
years. Fall and winter are the best.
times to go. Rapidly retrieved
crankbaits fished deep and sus-
pending shad imitators work well
on this lake.
9. Edward Medard Lake The
FWC stocks 100 sunshine bass
per acre annually in this 700-acre
reclaimed phosphate .pit in Hill-
sborough County. Most of the
fish anglers catch in this lake are
1 or 2 pounds, but some 2-year-
old fish tip the scales at 6 pounds.
Fall and winter are the times for
fishing in Edward Medard. Lake,
and the, best techniques are.drift-
ing in open water with li e min-
nows or bottom-fishing with dead
sluimp or chic ken h\er. Trolling
with deep-diving crankbaits also
is effective in finding .sunshine
bass- schools that often cobnre-

The new rule will enable the
FWC to issue antlerless deer
permits to farmers w ho received
deer depredation permits for crop
damage within the previous 12
months regardless of the amount
of acreage owned.
Beginning July 1, persons pos-
sessing this permit and associated
tags can take antlerless deer dur-
ing the muzzleloading, archery
and general gun seasons while on
their property.

has a nice fishing pier with good
10. Lake Osborne Lake Os-
borne (356 acres) and Lake Ida
(159) acres, are the largest wa-
ter bodies in the Osborne Chain
of Lakes in Palm Beach County.
The FWC stocks Lake Osborne
with 28 sunshine bass per acre
annually. Most of the fish find
their way to the dinner table by
the time they reach 1 pound,
but some of them make it to 3
pounds. The lake has plenty of

shad that provide a source of food
for the bass and a source of bait
for anglers. Fishing is best in
winter and spring months, and the
baits to use are live minnows and
chicken liver, fished on the bot-
tom near the Sixth Avenue Bridge
and in deep holes throughout the
lake. Bank fishermen catch lots
of sunshines here at the southern
limit of the species' range.

rones and morone-fishing is

Video game encourages kids

to eat their fruit and veggies

by Sandy Miller:Hays,
Agricultural Research Service.
It's lunchtime at school: Do
you know what your kids are

Ideally, it would be a whole-
some meal of fruits, veggies and
all the right foods. But if there
are vending machines or a snack
bar around, the temptations of'
sugar and fat may .be too great
for your youngster to resist
That's not just pessimism
speaking. A study by Agricul-
tural Research Service scien-
tists at the Children's Nutrition
Research Center in Houston,
Texas, has shown that the lure
of the goodies' is frequendy too

powerful for children. CNRC is
operated by Baylor College of
Medicine in collaboration with
Texas Children's Hospital and
In that study, researchers
tracked the eating habits of 594
fourth- and fifth-graders over a:
two-year period to find out how
access to snack bars ..affects
children's diets. One disturb-
.ing finding:. As kids made the
transition from grade school to
middle school, their lunchtime
consumption of healthy foods
like fruit, vegetables and milk
dropped by 33 percent or more.
What's more, the students
switched to eating 68 .percent
more foods that were higher in
calories, such as fries and chips.
and drank 62 percent more
sweetened beverages, such as
soda and sweetened teas.
Prepare yourself for this next
one; More than a third of the
middle-school students said that
during the two-year study, they
ate exclusively at the snack bar--
where the top-selling items %were
pizza, chips, soda, french fries,
candy and ice cream. Mans times
the only vegetable available at
the snack bar was a pickle, and
the closest thing to "fruit" \'as
fruit-flatored candy.
But all is not lost. The re-
searchers say it is possible to
make healthful fare more ap-
pealing for youngsters, through
foods such as colorful sliced
fruit in see-through plastic cups,
fruit-and-yogurt parfaits, or car-
rot sticks with low-fat dip.
And more good news (we
could use some about now.
couldn't we?.): If ou go about it
the right way. you actually can
get kids excited about eating
more fruits and vegetables.
For another study at CNRC.
researchers de\ eloped a comput-
er game called "Squire's Quest."
aimed at encouraging young-
sters to eat fruits and vegetables .
Students who played the game
%wound up eating an extra serv-
ing of fruit per day.
In "Squire's Quest," the
Kingdom of Fivealot is invaded
by snakes and moles bent on de-
stroying the fruit and vegetable
crops. The King and Queen of
Fivealot enlist student*'squires,"

who face challenges related to
eating more fruits, juice and veg-
etables. The squires gain points
by preparing recipes in a virtual
At the end of each session of
"Squire's Quest," the students
set a goal of making that recipe
at home; eating another serving
of fruit, juice .or vegetables as a
snack or part of a meal; or ask-
ing for a fruit, vegetable or juice
to be more readily available at
home. If the student meets the
goal, he or she earns points in
the next session of "Squire's
The CNRC study tested
"Squire's Quest" on 1,578
fourth-graders in Houston. The
youngsters were divided into
[to groups--some playing the
game. others not participating.
The researchers assessed the stu-
dents' diets before and after the
start of the 10-session game.
After just five weeks of play-
ing, the students who were par-
ticipating in "Squire's Quest"
were eating an extra serving of
fruits or vegetables daily. That's
pretty impressive, con-sidering
that similar programs often take
up to t\%o years to prompt a real
change in eating habits.
And while you might think
the extra fruit-and-veggie con-
sumption was just a short-term
fad stimulated by the game,
consider this: Children who get
into the habit of eating higher
amounts of fruits, juice and
vegetables generally keep right
on eating those types of healthy
foods as they grow into adults.
Also, people who consume more
fruit, juices and vegetables have
some le\el of protection from
certain cancers, heart disease
and diabetes.
While "Squire's Quest" is not
available commercial) or on-
line. it did show us something
very important- It is possible to
steer youngsters down the right
dietary path, and make our chil-
dren a little more deaf to.the
siren call of those vending ma-
chines and snack bars.

New book sure to be a hit with

gardeners in the hurricane zone

Which plants held up best
during. Florida's four recent
hurricanes? What trees proved
to be the weakest? Why were
some plants destroyed, while
others displayed only minimal
These and other topics are
addressed in a timely book enti-
tled, Stormscaping Landscap-
ing to Minimize Wind Damage
in Florida. Just off.the press, it
was written by Pamela Craw-
ford with the assistance of Bar-
bara Hardsell. It is 168 pages of
down to earth information that
is provided in plain language.
Over one hundred'high qual-
ity photographs are provided
that help to explain the cause
and effect of trees that suc-
-cumbed to the storms. Some
will break your heart. The story
of the John Atkins. family of
Jay is included and reveals the
amount.of damage that a single
tree can do. That family's house
was completely destroyed by a
single tree and it could be three
years before it can be rebuilt.
Chapter titles include "Un-
derstanding Hurricane Basics,"
"Know Your Plant's Wind Tol-
erance," "Other Reason's Why
Trees Fall," "Designing to
Minimize Wind Damage" and
"Proper Storm Aftercare."
I like this book for several
reasons, mainly because a lot of
hard work went into' its prepa-
ration. Too often reference
books are written by someone
who provides most of the con-
tent themselves. That is not the
case here. The contributor list-
contains 54 names from all over

Florida. Pamela and Barbara
traveled the state consulting
with Extension agents, forest-

and other affected citizens.
During several conversations
with the author it became ob-
vious that she was seeking as
much objective information as
possible.. She is quick to point
out that the content of the book
is anecdotal mostly informa-
tion that is passed from person
to person. However the bibli-
ography also has 54 entries, and
scanning the list I see many of
the experts that I also rely on for
this kind of information.

photographs that I sent and four
pages are dedicated to showing
and explaining how Santa Rosa
County has dealt with debris
cleanup since Hurricane Ivan.
I am not in the book business,
and rarely comment on com-
mercial references unless asked.
This one however is a keeper. It
is amazing that so much infor-
mation and high quality photo-
graphs could be gathered and
published in such a short period
of time following the storms.

Question of the Week: I
would like to grow garlic in my
garden. Can you tell me how to
do this?
Answer: Garlic is a fun and
relatively easy crop to grow in
Northwest Florida. It is best
established in the fall, grown
as a winter crop and harvested
in early May. Plant individual
cloves six inches apart and one
to three inches deep, with the
pointed end up. On sandy soil,
lightly. fertilize twice during the
winter and early spring to keep
plants vigorous.
A University of Georgia pub-
lication is available that pro-
vides some essential details. I
recommend that you download
and review this information
before getting started next fall.
You can easily find this docu-
ment using a good search en-
gine and typing in "UGA Garlic
Production for the Gardener."

Scientific society seeks minority students for scholarships

The American Chemical Soci-
ety, the world's largest scientific
society, is accepting applications
for its Scholars Program, a fi-
nancial support effort for under-
represented minority students in
the chemical sciences. The ap-
plications are for the 2005-2006
academic year.
African American, Hispanic/
Latino and Native American re-
cipients are eligible to receive uip
. to $3,000 and awards are renew-
able. High school seniors and
students in chemistry, chemical
engineering, biochemistry, en-
vironmental science and related
disciplines at two- and four-year
colleges may apply for scholar-
ships. Financial support is based
on a mix of. academic achieve-

ment and financial need.
The goal of the American
Chemical Society Scholars Pro-
gram is to diversify the chemical
sciences, both in academe and
the workforce, by helping under-
represented minority groups ob-
tain undergraduate degrees, and
to encourage them to advance in
chemistry or a chemically relat-
ed field. The Society expects to
award approximately $850,000
-this academic year to current and
new scholars.
The deadline to apply for the
2005-2006 program is March 1.
For more details about the ACS
Scholars Program and an online
application form, visit www.
chemistry.org/scholars or call 1-
800-227-5558, extension 6222.

Relatively few minorities pur-
sue chemistry-related careers,
according to a report prepared
-by the Society. In 2000, for ex-
ample, Hispanics/Latinos, who
make up 14 percent of the U.S.
population, represented less
than 3 percent of the chemistry
workforce; African Americans,
at almost 12 percent of the popu-
lation, comprised less than 2 per-
cent of the chemical workforce;
and Native Americans, repre-
senting 1 percent of the popula-
tion, made up less than 1 percent
of the chemical workforce.
Since the Scholars Program
was launched with a $5 mil-
lion grant in 1995, nearly 1,500
students have received finan-
cial support from the ACS. The

program is a winner of the 2001
President's Award for Excel-
lence in Science, Mathematics
and Engineering Mentoring, and
the 1997 Award of Excellence
from the American Society of
Association Executives.
Several collaborating part-
ners, including AstraZeneca,
Bayer,- the Dreyfus Founda-
tion, Dupont, GlaxoSmithKline,
Schering-Plough and Xerox,
have contributed $100,000 or
more to the Scholars Program.
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus
Foundation and the Procter &
Gamble Company are sustaining
partners that have contributed
more than $200,000 to support
student scholarships. PPG Indus-
tries Foundation, Inc. a found-

ing partner of the program has
contributed more than $500,000.
Many companies also offer men-
toring and paid internships to se-
lected program participants as
part of a student's academic and
career development plan.
The American Chemical So-
ciety is a nonprofit organization,
chartered by the U.S. Congress,
with a multidisciplinary mem-
bership of more than 159,000
chemists and chemical engi-
neers. It publishes numerous
scientific journals and databases,
convenes major research confer-
ences and provides educational,
science policy and career pro-
grams in chemistry. Its main of-
fices are in Washington, D.C.,
and Columbus, Ohio.
