Jennifer Zerbe, class valedictorian,

With the wind lifting his dark curls,
Zibe McKenzie hangs on with all his
19-month-old might as his father
steers a speeding 4-wheeler down the
beaten out lane leading up to their
home. With great admiration, Zibe
looks up at his father with a radiant
Watching him now, it seems hard
to believe that on the day of Zibe's
birth, Oct. 20, 2005 his parents,
Houston and Kim McKenzie were
devastated to discover that their son
had no thumbs.
Immediately, Houston and Kim
began discussing options with Zibe's
pediatrician who suggested the Shri-
ners Hospitals for Children in Tam-
"When Zibe was three months old
we met with a family in High Springs
who went through the same thing
with their daughter," Kim explained.
"It was good because we were able to
see what it would be like for Zibe."
The McKenzies began filling out
the necessary paperwork for Zibe
when he was three months old. He
would reed to undergo a polliciza-
tion procedure, which would make

where they met Zibe's physician, Dr.
Alfred Hess, and took a tour of the
"They were very warm. Everyone
working at the hospital seemed hap-
py to be there," Kim said. "They had
a popcorn maker and a club house.
The floors are all carpeted so it feels
more like an office complex than a

On their first visit to the hospital,
not only did Zibe receive a beanie
baby, but his big sister Railee, 3, was
presented with a Disney DVD.
Zibe's first procedure was sched-
uled for January 2007, but while
Houston and Kim were preparing
Zibe for surgery, a nurse noticed that
he had a slight cough. After explain-
ing that Zibe's draining sinuses would
most likely cause damage to his lungs

if they were to go ahead with the op-
eration, doctors opted to re-schedule
the surgery for March.
After undergoing the two-hour
long procedure on March 6, Zibe was
greeted in the recovery room by his
parents just as he was beginning to
wake up. Later, he was moved to a
single room, but according to Kim
he didn't stay there long. The hos-
pital provided the family with a red
wagon for Zibe who was anxious to
get outside. Houston and Kim spent
most of the afternoon outside walk-
ing through the extensive playground
"He didn't want to go back in,"
Kim said. "Ever since the surgery he
doesn't like to stay inside much."
The McKenzies were given good
news the day after the surgery. Zibe's
doctors told them that because he
was doing so well they would send
him home early.
On March 20 the McKenzies were
able to see Zibe's new thumb for
the first time since his cast was re-

tional," Kim said.

Ripe, Juicy and Delicious!

Grown and shipped fici from Gi4lkr' Couiit

By John M. Ayers
Shipments of juicy, sweet, ripe wa-
termelons from Florida's tri-county
area were picked up on Memorial
Day as many producers began to har-
The National Watermelon report
was not produced on Memorial Day
because it is a federal holiday.
However, the demand for red flesh
seedless and seeded melons was good
to steady as the harvesting of these
products increases, according to the
May 25 National Watermelon report.
As of Friday, May 25 seeded wa-
termelons being shipped in 24 inch
bins, 35s brought $19 to $20, mostly
$20. The seedless variety in like car-
tons of 35 brought $22 to $24 with
some bringing as much as $26 per
100 weight.
Farmers who planted their melon
crops on plastic with drip irrigation
are reporting having to supplement
their drip with overhead irrigation as
well. Some area farmers are report-
ing that the early yields are less than
in the past, due to cool nights experi-
enced in late April and early May.

they will see how well his hand is
healing. During that visit, Kim antici-
pates the doctors will want to sched-
ule Zibe's second pollicization pro-
cedure. This time it will be a thumb
for his right hand.
Described by his mother as a very

sweet little boy, Zibe tends to sit back
.and obser% e things. He doesn't talk a
lot, but that could be attributed to the
fact that he is constantly surrounded
by little girls. Not only does he have a
big sister, but Zibe also has two cous-
ins, both of whom are girls.

Forida Property Insurance Crisis
Three Questions
Why are insurance companies non-renewing your
homeowners policies?
1992 2006: Florida home insurers paid an estimated $10.4 billion
more in claims than they received in premium.
Florida remains a money-losing proposition for most home insurers.
2. If my insurance company cannot pay for my
hurricane loss, will I be paid?
The Florida Insurance Guaranty Association (FIGA) pays covered claims
up to a maximum amount of $300,000; and for homeowners claims FIGA will
pay an additional $200,000 for damage relating to structure and contents.
3. Is there a solution to the Florida property crisis?
Hawaii found the solution after Hurricane Iniki struck in 1992. Most
insurers were non-renewing business and were not writing new business.
The solution is a form of the Hawaii Hurricane Relief Fund, which only
wrote coverage for hurricanes as a separate policy.
All other coverages can be written by lie ind,&rr,, which will vigorously
compete for the business.
FLORIDA CANNOT AFFORD TO WAIT the time to act is now.
Call your state representative and state senator to urge them to support a Hawaii-type
plan for Florida TODAY!

with a laugh.
SDespite his love,of boyish hobbies
like playing ball and riding 4-wheel-
ers, Zibe will not be able to .fish in
the Shriners Gold Hook Award Kids
Fishing Tournament this weekend.
His presence is required at his sister's
birthday party.
"I don't know what we would have
done without the Shriners Hospital.
They provided childcare counselors
who would come in and give us a
break when we were worn out and
the Shriners covered all of our costs,"
Kim said. "Every person we met with
at the hospital gave us their work
phone number and their cell phone
number and told us to call anytime."
Though Kim and Houston have
visited the hospital numerous times,
she said that their reaction remains
the same every time they go.
"We both feel like saying, 'Why
are we here?' Therreare so many kids
here with more needs than we have,"
Kim said. "We're just so blessed."
On Saturday, June 2, the Suwannee
River Shrine Club will hosts its an-
nual Gold Hook Award Kids Fishing

ceeds raised at the adult-child fish-
ing tournament will benefit Shriners

Tampa where Zibe McKenize's pro-
cedure was performed. The Suwan-
nee River Shrine Club has set a goal
for this year to send over $10,000 to

from a lighter perspective as she told
the graduating seniors that each one
had left a memory with the school
"Ryan Hudson, I will never forget
your first day of middle school; you
were so upset. We walked round and
round the campus together all day
talking because you were too nervous
to go to class," Langford said.
Langford went down the class role
mentioning every senior and the last-
ing impression they had made on
Later, Langford hugged many of
the graduates as they approached the
stage in a single line to accept di-
plomas. Some were chewing bubble
gum, others were wearing sunglasses
and just a few were swinging their
graduation cords as Vickers turned

manship contest.
The State Show is intended to pro-
mote the Brahman breed as a whole

Greece and the story of' a people
from 1700 years ago from Germany.
The people from Athens were known
for their education, politics, science,
and sports; whereas the people of
Germany were known only as those
that destroyed civilization and were
extremely ruthless and violent. Su-
perintendent Vickers told the gradu-
ating class that both types of people
still exist today and he hopes they all
strive to be like the ancient people
from Athens and never see the path
of the ancient Germans people.

they were her "lucky penny." As the

Letter to the editor
Dear Editor:
The Florida Department of Trans-
portation, District Two joining
with the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration and local
law enforcement agencies is proud
to announce the "Click It or Ticket"
Florida campaign. The primary goal
for this campaign is to save lives by
getting motorists to buckle up. When
you are driving wear your safety belt
and make sure that your passengers
are buckled up.
Encourage everyone you know to
wear a safety belt. The cost of un-
buckled drivers and passengers goes
beyond those killed and the loss to
their families. We all pay for those
Vwho don't buckle up in higher
taxes, higher health care and higher
insurance costs.
The Click It or Ticket effort sur-
rounds one the nation's deadliest
holidays, Memorial Day weekend.

Hobbies: Visiting the old people.
Fellowship with other Marines.
Watching football. I am a die-hard
Miami Dolphins fan just like I am a
die-hard Marine.
Future plans: Go back to Las Ve-
gas and Camp Lejeune. I haven't
been there since I left boot camp in
What is something not many
people know about you? A lot
of people don't know I'm 70. I've
been married 46 and a-half years. I
met my wife while on leave. It was
at a ballgame in Chiefland.
What important lesson did your
parents teach you? Treat others
the way I want to be treated. That is
a good motto.
Who is your hero? My mom.
When I went into the Marine Corp.
I already knew a lot of discipline
because my mom didn't spare the

During the 2006 Memorial Holiday
weekend, nearly three dozbn Flo-
ridians were killed in motor vehicle
crashes across our state.
Research has shown that buckling
up is the single most effective way to
protect motorists and reduce fatalities
in vehicle crashes. Motorists need to
understand that no matter the make
or model of your vehicle, you are not
protected in a crash unless you are
using your safety belt. Unrestrained
occupants often increase the sever-
ity of injuries to other passengers in
a crash.
Buckling up saves lives. Please
fasten your safety belt every trip,
every time, day or night.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

In early May of this year Cindy
Jo and I took advantage of the op-
portunity to enjoy the peaceful and
quite remote area of Franklin and
Gulf Counties when we stayed in a
beach house near Indian Pass. Sever-
al people who had previously visited
this area told me that this was a fish-
erman's paradise and a great place to
experience a portion of Florida that
is still a natural resort for the nature
lover to behold. I too, agree.
Sometime ago I met a man from
eastern Gulf County that has lived
in Highlands View since he left Bay
County as a teenager. Highlands
View is a small residential commu-
nity across the inter-coastal canal
from Port St. Joe. This gentleman
could be classified as an ole salt, but I
had rather point out that he has lived
and is successful because of his work
ethic. He chose to do what he loves
and remain in the coastal community.
James Kent is this man. He has made
a living gigging fish, frogs and catch-
ing an occasional alligator when a
problem or the need arises for a pro-
fessional to assist the Florida Wild-
life Conservation Commission. Yes, I
said Kent is a professional, licensed
reptile specialist in the areas of Gulf
and Franklin counties.
While we were staying near Indian
Pass, I talked to James Kent to ask if
he would tell me where some of the
best places to fish in the area from
the beach were. He showed me sev-
eral places that turned out to be good
spots, even, though the weather was
not warm and sunny.
On Monday evening I met him at
his home and he said, we'd be back
in and hour or so with enough fish for
me and my wife for lunch on Tues-
day. He was correct regarding the
amount of fish that he gigged, but we
spent more than just an hour or two
on the water.
Flounder fishing or gigging is not
something that I have had a lot of ex-
perience doing. I have always done
this on the front of an airboat, but

Moreover, for those of us who
saw Vietnam, Afghanistan or Iraq
regurgitate the remains of our
friends and classmates, the day holds
particular significance. Now I am sure
you are asking yourself how those
comments relate to investing on Wall
Street. They do not...except to point
out that we must occasionally turn
our focus away from what we cap get
and instead concentrate on what we
can give back.
Traditionally, this is also the time of
the year when I discuss the subject of
when and what to sell. For example,
simply holding unrealized profits is
never a reason to sell. Unfortunately,
the issue of when to sell is too often
treated in erroneously general terms
such as, "the market is too high, sell,"
or "the market is going down, sell."
Deciding when to sell is the single
most difficult decision any investor
has to make. Moreover, I would be
the first to agree that it often takes
super human strength to decide the
matter dispassionately.
Any time a stockyou hold plummets
in price there is an accompanying icy
panic brought on by the thought of
not only your profits evaporating, but
also your original capital.

ty, he always fished with his father,
gigging, netting, or whatever they
needed to do to put food on the table.
As a young boy they moved to Gulf
County and in this area around the
shallow flats of the Big Bend he cut
his teeth mastering the art of flounder
To say that he has the art of floun-
dering down to a science is an under-
statement. I have fished quite a bit in
my life, but never have I experienced
anything like I saw on that Monday
night in Port Saint Joe Bay.
James Kent would stand on the
very front of the bow of this 14-foot
wood boat with his outboard engine
tilted up to just slightly move hiri in
the direction he wanted to go with the
assistance of his gig handle as a pole.
He told me to keep a lookout on his
right side for the eyes and the out-
line, of a flounder in the sand. As he
poled through the shallows, when he
saw what he thought was a flounder,
12 inches or larger, within the blink
of an eye, he would gig the fish and
sweep the pole up over the side of the
boat and use the lip of the second seat
where I was standing to pull the fish
from the gig. This would all occur
within the blink of an eye. On several
occasions by the time he was raking
the fish off on the lip of the seat, he
would ask, didn't you see him, he was
laying right there next to his bed. *
James Kent is a master with a gig;
he gigged a lot of flounder that night,
up to 4 pounds. When we got back to
the truck and were pulling out of the
boat ramp, he told me why he asked
me to keep an eye on his right side.
He explained that he has a cataract
on his right eye that clouds his vi-
sion on that side. Honestly, I would
have never known that he didn't have
20/20 plus vision. This man is quite
an outdoorsman. He explained that
we were just playing around Monday
night, yes we got enough fish for a
meal. "When I use to do this for a liv-
ing, I would gig anywhere from 100
to 150 pounds a night," Kent added.
It was a pleasure to spend time in
the boat watching a craftsman at his

I have a big old fat sweet tooth, how
about you? Fresh coconut cake,
chocolate delight, pecan pie, and ba-
nana pudding are a few of my all time
When, John and I married back
nearly 30 years ago I was blessed to
make many new friends in the Tren-
ton area. I was lucky to have many
meals at longtime friends of the Ay-
ers family Hugh and Mae Hendrix's
home at Hart Springs. Although the
Hendrixs are no longer with us I still
remember Mrs. Mae' grace and won-
derful ability to play hostess at any
event. She just had a special way of
making everyone feel welcome. She
was also a wonderful cook, her fudge
was divine and she was known for
her Coca-Cola cake.
I'm pretty sure the Coke cake was
made so often because Mr. Hugh
worked for many years for the Coca-
Cola company. At one time he ran the
local Coke plant in Trenton. Come
to think about it, Mrs. Mae would
dearly love that the Trenton Coke
plant which was closed for many
years is now a gathering spot for
women. The once abandoned brick
building is home to the Suwannee
Valley Quilt Shoppe. Daily ladies
from all over visit the shop to discuss
their latest sewing project or to just
sit down for a meal and a nice visit
with a good friend. Most anytime you
walk through the door you can hear
the buzz of laughter and happy chat-
ter from any number of women who
have gathered there,
Yes, I do believe Mrs. Mae would
have been so pleased that the old
Coke building has found a new life. A

new life that centers around creativ-
ity and friendships.

P.O..Box 559

POST 149
P. O. Box I

Tlus week's article will be intentionally short in order for the newspapers to cover the
weekend Memorial Day services in the area. While a lot of activities included cranking
up the BBQ grill, catching up on some chores or enjoying a day fishing or boating,
many of us took the time set aside to honor those who died serving this country in the
name of freedom. For all of those who attended, thank you. For those who didn't, you
missed a very special event.
I'd like to start by saying that I had the honor of being a part of two services in our
area. On Sunday, May 27th a service was held at the Cedar Key Cemetery and on
Monday, May 28th a service was conducted at the Gilchrist County Courthouse in
Trenton. After attending these two services I must say that I am very proud to be a career
veteran as well as a member of the community. It is very rewarding to be a part of
services honoring our fallen soldiers for whom we owe so very much. On Saturday, May
26th, the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 visited the Tri-County and Ayers Nursing
Homes. Current President and President-elect lead the visits accompanied by the Unit
Chaplin and presented each veteran a small token of appreciation for their military
service consisting of a few candies, a flag, a poppy and a copy of the "In Flanders Field"
poem. This is what veterans organizations should be doing on these occasions; .taking
care of our disabled veterans. Congratulations, ladies, for a job well done!
Whether or not we agree on the current war, Memorial Day is set aside to honor our
fallen. I appreciate a community that understands that this day is set aside for this
purpose and not for politics.
Come out and support the largest veterans organization in America by attending a
meeting in your area.
American Legion Post 91 in Trenton meets the third Thursday of the month at 7 pm.
American Legion Post 149 in Newberry meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7
Please remember our troops who may be in harm's way and their families.

Service Officer Post 91

Although Memorial Day weekend
will have passed when you read this,
I hope you took the time to remember
and honor those who have given their
all in an effort to secure and maintain
our freedom, whether military or
It is regretful that the devastating
impact of armed conflicts has a way
of fading from memory. If nothing
else, the continual blqodshed in
Afghanistan and Iraq should remind
you that we have a Memorial Day
for reasons other than setting up the
barbecue grill.

Harrison opposes excessive

spending on an animal control


Gilchrist County Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison
Carrie A. Mizell
"I don't think Gilchrist County
needs an $87,500 animal control fa-
cility," County Commissioner D. Ray
Harrison, Jr. said last week.
Harrison missed the May 7 coun-
ty commission meeting due to health
problems. At the meeting the com-
missioners voted unanimously to au-
thorize the use of $87,500 to build an
animal control facility on three acres
at the 'solid waste facility.
Initially, the board had approved
$37,500 to be spent on land acquisi-
tion and $50,000 for the facility, but
since land acquisition is no longer
necessary the commissioners voted
to allocate all funds for construction
of the facility.
At the May 21 county coinmis-
sion meeting Harrison told his fellow
commissioners that he would have
opposed spending the entire $87,500
on construction of the facility.
Harrison pointed out that the
county is currently in a gas crunch
and that $37,500 would have been

put to better use had it been placed
in a rainy day fund. Also, Harrison
felt that the funds would have been
better used if they had been allocated
to purchase additional equipment for
the Gilchrist County Road Depart-
"How in one year's time, because
we are in the same budget year, could
the cost of the facility have escalat-
ed so much so that we would need
to spend all that .money?" Harrison
The state legislature is going to
cut the county's funds next year, ac-
cording to Harrison.
"If we know that going in then
it makes sense that we would hold
back as much rainy day money as we
could to help offset bur losses," Har-
rison said. "I want-all the citizens of
Gilchrist County to know that I am
not in favor of the board's action."

ty area's first recipient of a Habitat
for Humanity home.
Connie Brosam, matriarch of
the group that includes son, Jacob,
daughters Krista Shaver and April
Shaver and her son, Christopher, ex-
plained the family had put their trust
and faith in God three years ago when
they pulled up stakes in Iowa to come

to Florida.
Jacob was born with a rare ge-
netic disorder and as it turned out,
one of the best pediatric geneticists
in the country just happened to be at
Without hesitation the young
mother loaded her family and moved
bag and baggage in order to give her
son the best life possible.
Settling in Cross City, Connie, once
a nursing assistant, became full-time
moin and caregiver for Jacob.
Living in government housing, the
family prayed for more space and
safer living conditions.'

The criteria changed and the fam-

They completed all the forms,

The site for the home is located
near Highways 351 and 349 on 1.6
acres donated by Joe Anderson, Con-

late Woody Lovelace and according
to April, Lovelace went above and
beyond to enhance the site.
"The way he did it," April said,
"will allow us to build the house four
or five different ways."
The next step in getting the Bro-

amassing the necessary materials.
Financial contributions and donat-

Joyful Heart Quil
< {} "tII l

Diana Lynn showing off her col-
orful tropical tote bag she created.
Well, at last, the smoke, has more
or less cleared out and you can at
least breathe a little better...praise
God. Now we don't want to seem
ungrateful but a couple of really hard
gully washers would do us a world
of good. We don't need any hail,
Lord, or high winds and lightening
that could cause more fires but a few
days of good hard rain all over North
Central Florida would be a real bless-.
ing for us all...and all God's children
said, "amen."
However, there wasn't a cloud in
sight on Wednesday,* May 16th as
sixteen Joyful Hearts made their way
through the "smog," smoke plus fog,
to quilt, craft, chat, or whatever.
Diana Lynn dug deep into her bags
of unfinished projects and came out
with a counted cross-stitch on which
she's been working for umpteen
years. She worked on that while
embroidering on a dresser scarf I'd
started about six months ago...my,
how time flies.
Ann Mangone, Marvine Deer, Pat
Luka, and Elaine Nemeth all worked
on putting the binding on our club
quilt and making sure any little mis-
takes were taken care of.
Betty Hicks, who is recovering
nicely from cataract surgery...praise
God...was catching up on her Swed-
ish weaving now that she can see
once again. Alice Binns, Jane Boyd,
Cathy Strom, and Mary Lou Ryder
all worked on theirs as well.
Barbara Myrick embroidered and
kept Lera Townsend company as she
continued her crochet work. Myrle
Gilkey followed suit. Both Ann
Taylor and Barbara Strom took the
morning off and just chatted and had
fun, although, Barbara did bring in

Jane Boyd showing off the great
purse she made under Barbara
Strom's watchful eye.
a great "show and tell" quilt. It was
so unique. She calls it her "dysfunc-
tional quilt" because it's a collection
of odds and ends and mismatched,
different shapes and sized squares...
Well not really squares. I love it...
it would make a great table cloth.
You'll see it soon in the paper.
We missed those not there., Bon-
nie Ed-wards was babysitting a grand-
son...Joey. Jackie Moore was home
taking care of her hubby, Lawrence,
and Ruth Wilkerson was having cata-
ract surgery. Our prayers are with
Jackie and Ruth and anyone else that
is going through a valley.
Before long everyone's tummys
were saying, "let's eat." So we laid
aside our work, Elaine said the grace
and we ate some of our left over tea
sandwiches and ice cream and cake.
Cathy is our ,only May birthday and
she requested a chocolate fudge cake
with chocolate icing. Sooo, that's
what she got with pecans on top,
no less. It was a new icing recipe I
found in a book. It was made with
sour cream and was sooo yummy.
We cleaned up and departed, tum-
mys full of goodies, and hearts full of
joy. Goodness knows we all need as
much joy as we can find these days.
It seems whichever way you turn
there is turmoil and strife; sickness,
hunger, war, killings, it never seems
to end but there is a place where we
can find everlasting peace and some
one who can help us to find joy in the
midst of chaos. Do you know who
He is and more importantly does He
know you?
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, May 30th. We hope that
everyone will be well, not too busy
and able to join us. If you come, I

promise to tell you a hilarious story
about Bonnie's pet chicken, Henretta,
and the mayonnaise jar. You won't
want to miss it.
Oh, and by the way, dare I write it,
think or say it, but...have you noticed
it's the end of May and so far there
have been very few if any love bugs?
Maybe it's the drought, maybe it's
the fires and smoke, maybe it's the
next winter we had, or maybe it's a
blessing. Whatever it is...Hallelujah.
'Til next time.,
A Joyful Heart,

Alina DeWein receives scholarship from

Levy-Gilchrist Retired Educators

By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Levy-Gilchrist Retired Edu-
cators came together on May 21 to
honor several seniors from the area
who will be pursuing a career in the
field of education.
One special senior from Trenton
High School was selected to receive
a $500 scholarship. Alina DeWein
received the scholarship from Mary
Jo Mansfield who chaired the schol-
arship selection committee presented
Alina with her scholarship. Mrs.
Mansfield is a retired music teacher
from Gilchrist County.


Alina said that she plans to attend
Lake City Community College and
then transfer to St. Leo. She hopes to
one day teach 2rd or 3nd grade stu-
dents. After thanking the retired edu-
cators for the scholarship she said,
"God has made it so perfectly clear
because all my scholarships are in the
field of teaching."
The selection process according
to Mrs. Mansfield was very difficult
because all the candidates were well
qualified to go on and make great
teachers. The field of possible recipi-
ents included Katie Hankins, Brittany

Peters, and Jeffrey Lee Williams Jr.
of Bell High School. Tiffany Long of
Williston High School was the only
candidate from Levy County. Alina
DeWein was the only applicant from
Trenton High School.
All the applicants will receive $100
to be used for books as they further
their education.
The meeting was held at the Light-
house Restaurant in Fanning Springs.
Anyone wishing to become part of
the Retired Educators Association
can contact Pam Johnson at 493-

June 1 will signal the start of a very
active 2007 hurricane season, accord-
ing to experts at the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration Pre-
diction Center.
Already, experts are projecting a
75 percent chance that the hurricane
season will produce 13 to 17 named
storms, with seven to 10 becoming
hurricanes, of which three to five
could become major hurricanes of
Category 3 strength or higher.
While Floridians were still reel-
ing from an unusually active 2005
hurricane season, which included
Hurricane Katrina, meteorologists
predicted that the 2006 season would
bring 13 to 16 named storms, includ-
ing eight to 10 hurricanes, two to four
of which were projected to impact the
United States coastline.
Rest assured that NOAA officials
are not always right. In reality, there
were 10 storms in 2006. Five hur-
ricanes did form, but no hurricanes
actually reached the United States
The National Hurricane Center
points to climate patterns, warmer-
than-normal sea surface temperatures
in the Atlantic Ocean and the El Nino
cycle as responsible for the expected
above normal 2007 hurricane activ-
Hurricane names for 2007 are:
Andrea, Barry, Chantal, Dean, Erin,
Felix, Gabrielle, Humberto, Ingrid,
Jerry, Karen, Lorenzo, Melissa, Noel,
Olga, Pablo, Rebekah, Sebastien,
Tanya, Van and Wendy.
.Despite devastating hurricane sea-
sons in the last few years, a startling
-national survey recently showed that


#.'1 Ji



a dangerously high percentage of res-
idents in hurricane-vulnerable states
still are not adequately informed or
prepared to protect their families and
Emergency managers were con-
cerned when, of those surveyed: '56
percent don't feel vulnerable to a hur-
ricane or related tornado or flooding.
Sixty percent have no family disas-
ter plan. Sixty-eight percent have no
hurricane survival kit. Eighty-three
percent have taken no steps to make
their home stronger and 13 percent
said they might not or would not
evacuate even if ordered to leave-
leaving tens of thousands of residents
at grave risk. I
Residents are encouraged to have a
family disaster plan in place, as well
as, a disaster supply kit.
The kit should include:
Water (at least 1 gallon daily per
person for 3.to 7 days).
Food (at least enough for three to
seven days)
Clothing (seasonal/rain gear/
sturdy shoes)
First Aid Kit/Medicines/Prescrip-
tion Drugs
Special Items-for babies and the
Toiletries/Hygiene Items/Mois-
ture Wipes
Radio-Battery operated and
NOAA weather radio
Telephones (Fully charged cell
phone with an extra battery and a tra-
ditional, non-cordless phone)
Cash (with some small bills) and
Credit Cards
Toys, Books and Games
Important Documents-in a water-
proof container or watertight re-seal-
able plastic bag-insurance, medical
records, bank account numbers, so-
cial security card, etc.)
Tools-keep a set with you during
the storm
Vehicle Fuel Tanks Filled
Pet Care Items
Hurricane season runs June 1
through November 30, with peak ac-
tivity occurring August through Oc-

(Continued from Page Three)

Given that this is Memorial Day
weekend, I would suggest you once
again contemplate the words penned
over a century ago by Catherine
Lee Bates in the song, "America the
Beautiful." She wrote, "Confirm thy
soul in self control."
Never let others, especially those
who stand to make a commission,
make the decision for you. It is nearly
impossible to go wrong implementing
a buy and hold strategy. Known as
a low turnover portfolio, it is the
antithesis of the brokerage industry.
Remember that a portion of any
unrealized'profit belongs to Uncle
Sam. As long as you do not sell, you
can continue to use his money to
enhance your gains...interest free.
Investment guru Warren Buffett has
stated that he is quite content to hold
any security .indefinitely so long as
the return on equity of the underlying
business is satisfactory.
Does this mean you never sell a
stock? No, of course not, especially
if a company is suffering from
cost controls, questionable accounting
practices, a lack of innovation or
unfavorable industry trends.
Now I know what you are asking
yourself, are there any stocks I
recommend selling? Last year at this
time I mentioned the airlines and
the domestic auto manufacturers.
I still would not hold those stocks.
Although there are several companies
vying for the title, GM's management
is probably the most unenlightened of
any major company on the planet.
I continue to receive questions
asking if I have had a change of heart
with regard to selling off tobacco
stocks. The answer is no. Last year
I was in favor of selling Merck. I
rescind that decision now. Home
Depot and Lowe's should be on
your sell list if the housing market
continues to deteriorate, which I
believe will happen.
I would also sell Trex, which has
succumbed to poor management and
the housing slump, despite having
an excellent product. My final
sell candidate would be Eastman
Kodak, a sad story of incompetent
management that just could not read
the tea leaves.
