Welcome Center welcomes in


new year with parking lot birth

A number of firsts
mark the occasion,
center christened
with surprise arrival

Melody Lee


Tallahassee coming to Hamilton


Governor, It. Governor to visit


Jasper News STAFF

It was a baby boom" of
sorts in Hamilton County,
as the first-stop in Florida
(via 1-75) recorded a first
during the first week of the
new year, along with regis-
tering a first for several em-
ployees and a FHP trooper
at the local Florida Wel-
come Center.
Selena Carter of Valdosta,
made it all happen last
week as she was traveling
on 1-75 from Georgia into
Florida. Selena was preg-
nant and due! The Welcome
Center became her materni-
ty ward and the parking-
lot, her delivery room.
When Selena decided to
run some errands on the af-
ternoon of Tuesday, Janu-
ary 4, she didn't know that
she wouldn't return home
until the morning of Janu-
ary 6. The nine-month preg-
nant mother of three, was
traveling south on 1-75
when she began having
contractions.
"It happened so fast and
the pain was bad that I did-
n't know what to do. I was
scared and I just kept dri-
ving," Carter said. She
stopped at the Florida Wel-
come Center in Hamilton
County to get help, but the
pain was so intense that she
couldn't walk and she lay
down on the pavement next
to her car.
Two of the Center's infor-
mation specialists, Doreen
Goolsby and Rosetta
Townsend, were leaving
work at 5 p.m. and noticed
several people trying to
help a woman lying in the
parking lot. Goolsby and
Townsend immediately
rushed to the scene.
When they heard that the
woman was in labor,
Townsend ran to the other
end of the parking lot,
where Florida Highway Pa-
trolman Cpl. Phil Sumner
was on safety duty. He ra-
dioed for an ambulance and
the pair returned to the
pregnant woman.
Cpl. Sumner wanted to


"Midwives" back to regular duty
DELIVERING INFO DELIVERING BABIES: Florida Wel-
come Center information specialists Rosetta Townsend (I)
and Doreen Goolsby returned to their normal job duties
last week after assisting in the birth of a 6 pound, 15 ounce
impatient baby boy in the parking lot of the center. Selena
Carter of Valdosta went into sudden labor on January 4
and had to make an emergency stop at the center where
the two women and FHP Cpl. Phil Sumner safely delivered


the baby. (Staff Photo)
where she could lie on the
back seat, but she told him
that the baby was coming.
In a matter of minutes,
Tyson Javon Carter was
born.
Goolsby wrapped the
baby in a jacket from
Carter's car and placed the
baby on the mother's chest.
When Hamilton County
Emergency Medical Service
paramedics arrived, they
examined both mother and
baby, and transported them
to South Georgia Medical
Center in Valdosta.
Goolsby is the mother of
three, one of which was de-
livered by "natural" child-
birth, and she was present
at the birth of two of her
grandchildren. Composed
and factual about the un-
usual birth, she said, "I'm


just glad that everything
went all right and that the
baby and mother are okay."
Townsend, on the other
hand, was wide-eyed with
wonder as she described
the birth. She has one child
but did not deliver by "nat-
ural" childbirth and had
never witnessed a birth.
She too expressed her plea-
sure that both mother and
baby were doing well.
A 78-year-old woman
who was traveling with her
daughter and son-in-law
said that January 4 was also
her birthday and that see-
ing the birth of a new baby
was the best present she
could have received.
According to mom, T. J.
weighed 6 pounds, 15

Hamilton earnings analyzed

in 2004 Out of Reach report

Housing costs continue to climb in county


A person in Hamilton
County has to earn $7.81
per hour to be able to af-
ford a modest, two-bed-
room rental unit, accord-
ing to the annual 2004 Out
of Reach, report prepared
by the Washington, DC-
based National Low In-
come Housing Coalition
(NLIHC).
The date compiled in the
report, analyzes the rela-
tionship between rental
housing costs and the
wages of workers and
their families in need of
affordable housing.
The Out of Reach report


breadth of the housing
shortage in Hamilton
County. "The gap be-
tween what people earn
and what their housing
costs is stark," said Glen-
da Parton, Homeless Co-
ordinator for the Home-
less Coalition of Suwan-
nee Valley. "The conse-
quences of ends that do
not meet needs are all too
real. Untenable financial
choices, doubled and


tripled-up families, evic-
tion and homelessness."
A review of the 2004
Out of Reach data reveals
that:
Rising housing prices
are especially acute for
families earning wages
that are typical for ser-
vice-sector jobs, which are
the backbone of Florida's
economy. The average in-

KidCare health coverage sign-up ongoing


January 30 is the deadline
for open enrollment in the
Florida KidCare program, a
state funded program that
provides health care cover-
age for those children whose
families do not qualify for
Medicaid. As many as one in
two children in Hamilton
:County may qualify for the
program.
To qualify, the family must
have at least one uninsured
child and a household in-
come at or below double the
federal poverty level. Cur-
rently this is an annual in-
come of $24,980 for a two
person household and
$31,340 for three. The annual
income increases as family
size increases. A family of six
can have an income slightly
over $50,000 and still qualify.
Applications are available
at the Hamilton- County,
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram office, the Hamilton
County Health Department,
Department of Children and
Families office and on the In-


temet at
"http:/ /www.healthykids.o
rg". Applications in Spanish
and assistance completing
them in Spanish is available
at the Health Department
clinic.
This is the first enrollment
opportunity since 2003 and it
is important that qualified
applicants sign-up. KidCare
has a $15 or $20 a month pre-
mium. Many private, em-
ployer-sponsored plans cost
over $100 per week and are
not affordable to many peo-
ple. This is an opportunity
for parents to insure their
children at an affordable
price.
For many families, free or
lower cost prescription med-
icine is available in Hamilton
County. Anyone taking any
medicine for over a few
months'may be eligible td get
it for free from the manufac-
turer. Blood pressure medi-
cines, heart medicines and a
wide variety of other medi-
cines are covered by various


free programs. Some generic
medicines are available at a
very low cost. Applications
are free and readily available.
Funded by a grant from
The Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida, the Hamil-
ton County Pharmacy Assis-
tance Program can help with
the application process for
free or low cost medicine. It is
a local resource for residents
to find other sources for
medicines, from discount
cards for persons not on
Medicare, to free programs
for those who qualify. The
program has numerous re-
sources available for all
Hamilton County residents.
Program services are com-
pletely free.
The program is located at
204 Northeast First Street in
the Sandlin building across
from the courthouse. The en-
trance is on-the side of the
building on First Avenue. It
is open daily from 8 a.m to 5
p.m. For more information

come earned by families
with extremely low in-
comes (those at 30% or
below of their area's me-
dian income) statewide is
$7.55 an hour, yet there is
no county in which an ex-
tremely low income
household can afford the
fair market rent on a two-
bedroom home.
The weighted (pre-hur-
ricane)"housing wage"
for Florida in 2004 is
$15.37 an hour, meaning
that, on average across
the state, a worker must
earn two-and-one-half
times the newly increased
state minimum wage of
$6.15 per hour to be able
to afford a modest two-
bedroom apartment. The
housing wage in Florida
has continuously in-
creased each year.
The housing wage in
Hamilton County is $7.81
per hour. Even with. the
recent increase in the
state minimum wage to
$6.15, minimum wage
workers in Hamilton
County must work 51
hours per week to afford
a two-bedroom unit.
Among those impacted
by the affordable housing
crunch in Hamilton
County are thousands of
service sector employees,
such as housekeepers and
child care workers. With-
out them, Florida's econo-
my would grind to a halt.
Yet decentand affordable
housing frequently re-


mains elusive for these
workers and their fami-
lies, jeopardizing the
adults' ability to work as
well as the children's abil-
ity to succeed in school.
As a result of this crisis,
advocates are calling for
restoration of full appro-
priations for the State's
housing trust funds,
Florida's dedicated
source of revenue for af-
fordable housing. Hun-
dreds of millions of trust
fund dollars have been
diverted by the Legisla-
ture for unrelated purpos-
es over the past several
years. Along with restora-
tion of these funds must
come an increased em-
phasis on addressing the
housing needs of ex-
tremely low income fami-
lies, which are not well-
served by State-adminis-
tered housing programs.
Only 1% of the rental
units created in the histo-
ry of these State programs
are reserved for extreme-


ly low-income families,
even though they com-
prise at least 60% of the
unmet rental housing
need. The funding cuts
make it even, more diffi-
cult to address that need.
At the national level,
advocates are urging full
funding for all federal
housing programs such as
the Section 8 voucher pro-
gram as well as the estab-
lishment of a National
Housing Trust Fund,
which would provide
communities with funds
to build, rehabilitate and
preserve 1.5 million units
of truly affordable hous-
ing over the next 10 years.

had been frozen by a
change in accounting
rules, won final approval
last month from the U.S.
Congress.
Moments before law-
makers adjourned for the
year, the Senate passed by
voice vote the bill earlier
approved by the House of
Representatives, which in-
cludes a package of
telecommunications mea-
sures. The bill now goes to
President Bush to be
signed into law.
One provision will tem-
porarily ease accounting
rules that forced the Feder-
al Communications Com-
mission earlier this year to
freeze funds from the so-
called E-Rate program.
The E-rate program, ad-
ministered by the Univer-
sal Service Administrative
Co. (USAC), is used to
subsidize Internet and oth-
er communications in
schools as well as rural
health care programs.
It is funded by compa-

tance telephone service,
like AT&T Corp. and Veri-
zon Communications .
They typically pass on
those charges to cus-
tomers.
In August the USAC
was forced to freeze hun-
dreds of millions of dollars
in funds for the E-rate pro-
gram in order to comply
with certain government
accounting standards.
Although popular, the
E-Rate program has also
been dogged by allega-
tions of waste, fraud and
abuse, prompting investi-
gations by federal prose-
cutors, the FCC and Con-
gress.
The bill also includes
provisions to create a fund
that would reimburse gov-
ernment agencies that
move from certain wire-
less airwaves to make way
for commercial services.
The money to fund the
program would come
from proceeds raised in
the auction of the air-
waves.

Patients' access to critical drugs

at risk, consumer group finds


Older and disabled
Americans, facing life-
threatening and debilitat-
ing illnesses such as can-
cer and multiple sclerosis,
are struggling to get
Medicare-covered drug
treatments because doc-
tors increasingly are refus-
ing to follow Medicare
coverage requirements, a
new report issued by a na-
tional consumer group,
the Medicare Rights Cen-
ter (MRC) found.
Under current policy,
Medicare does not allow
patients to be reimbursed
when they purchase cov-
ered medications, such as
chemotherapy drugs, for
themselves. Medicare re-
quires that the physician
who administers the med-
ication purchase the drug,
and Medicare then pays
the doctor the cost of the
drug. When a doctor de-
clines to purchase the
drug, Medicare declines to
pay for it even when the
patient buys the drug for
administration by a physi-
cian.
There is a quick fix ei-
ther reimburse patients
for medicines they pur-
chase for themselves, or
require physicians who
are paid by Medicare to
purchase the drugs," said


Robert Hayes, president
of MRC. "The Administra-
tion has the statutory au-
thority to do this today."
The MRC report found
that as more patients are
being asked by their doc-
tors to buy their drug
treatments themselves -
often chemotherapy drugs
and biological agents to be
infused or injected that
can cost thousands of dol-
lars per treatment they
either go without their
drugs or experience sig-
nificant financial hard-
ship.
The report, "Heightened
Anguish: Medicare Pay-
ments for Life-Saving
Drugs", explains that doc-
tors do not want to stock
the drugs because of the
overhead costs involved
or are uncertain that
Medicare will reimburse
them for administering
certain drugs. Additional-
ly, recent changes in
Medicare Part B drug re-
imbursement has led
some doctors to believe
that Medicare reimburse-
ment is not adequate to
cover all of their costs, de-
spite General Accoufit-
ability Offices reports to
the contrary.
The MRC has recom-
mended that the Centers


for Medicare and Medic-
aid Services either allow
patients to be reimbursed
for drugs they buy them-
selves and are adminis-
tered in doctors' offices, or
require doctors to pur-
chase medications if they
are seeking Medicare re-
imbursement for adminis-
tering them.
More than three-fourths
of Medicare's expendi-
tures for outpatient pre-
scription drugs under
Medicare Part B are drugs
administered in a doctor's
office. In 2002, Medicare
spent $8.5 billion on these
drug treatments.
When Medicare begins
covering outpatient pre-
scription drugs under
Medicare Part D in 2006,
drug treatments currently
covered under Medicare
Part B will not be affected
by the new drug benefit.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Jennings: Preservation and


Dear Editor:
Over one hundred years
ago, the town of Jennings
became a wealthy center
of cotton ginning. Boll
weevils, the Great De-
pression, and an Inter-
state have slowly drained
its wealth and much of its
vitality. Today, Jennings
is a sleepy little town
with few businesses, no
industry, and a rapidly
changing environment.
However, with the com-
bined resources of water
and inexpensive, open
land, its location as the
first town in Florida and


its proximity to Valdosta,
Jennings has much to of-
fer new residents, indus-
try, and tourists.
Visitors to Jennings im-
mediately notice the lack
of a formal downtown.
Most of the historic build-
ings were torn down long
ago and not replaced.
Manufactured housing is
being used for new busi-
nesses for one reason or
another. Empty lots out-
number buildings. The
most historic remaining
buildings are in severe
disrepair. There is a lack
of shade trees and pedes-


trian-friendly sidewalks.
These are not qualities
normally associated with
an inviting business dis-
trict. These are places that
draw neither visitors nor
new businesses.
Another issue facing
Jennings is its ability to
retain residents. Many of
the homes in town, once
vacant, are sold to non-
permanent residents. The
county around Jennings is
developing at a much
faster rate than the town
itself. Young people often
leave Jennings and do not
return. There is little


Joyc e M. Cortes, MD

planning
pride in the town itself
and a sense of hopeless-
ness is often expressed by
the long-term residents
there.
A proactive new organi-
zation is forming to ad-
dress these and other is-
sues in Jennings. We will
be primarily an organiza-
tion dedicated to the
preservation of heritage
and planning for the fu-
ture. Immediate action
will be initiated to reha-
bilitate the old Bank of
Jennings building.
Working with Hamilton
Main Street, we will carry
on the goals of historic
preservation and down-
town revitalization, but
with a focus on Jennings
resources.
We are seeking initial
members who will dedi-
.cate themselves to start-
ing up this exciting new
organization. Everyone is
invited, and we especially
need people with exper-
tise in law, accounting,
computers, non-profit
management, architec-
ture, engineering, and
government.
If this sounds exciting to
you, please contact Brent
Runyon at jefnningsher-
itage@yahoo.com, (803)
920-7756, or 264 Magnolia
Street, Athens, GA 30606.
Thank you. Brent Runy-
on
(Editor's Note: Brent
Runyon is a former resi-
dent of Jennings and a '91
graduate of Hamilton
County High School and
class Valedictorian. He is
currently in graduate
school at the University of
Georgia, seeking a Mas-
ter's Degree in Historic
Preservation).

Spiritual

Guidance

By Jerry Thomason, Pastor, Harvest Fellowship


The 10 Commandments


Upon visiting Washing-
ton DC, the thing that
caught my attention the
most was how the Bible
was quoted, pictured, or al-
luded to at just about every
monument and govern-
ment building I visited. It is
very evident that the
founders of the United
States government used the
Bible as a guide and quoted
it often in their writings
and speeches and even
chiseled it in stone so we all
could know where they
stood as our nation was
framed. It is evident that
our nation's judicial justice
system is based upon the.
10 Commandments of God
given. to Moses in the Old
Testament. I thought it
would be good to remind
ourselves what those com-
mandments are and see


just how many directly re-
late to the laws of the land
today.
Exodus 20:1-17:
And God spoke all these
words, saying,
"You shall have no other
gods before Me.
You shall not make for
yourself any carved image
(idol).
You shall not take the
name of the Lord your God
in vain (irreverently).
Remember the Sabbath
day, to keep it holy.
Honor your father and
your mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit
adultery (have sexual rela-
tions outside your own
marriage).
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false
witness against your neigh-


bor (do not lie).
You shall not covet your
neighbor's house, wife, ser-
vants, ox, donkey, or any-
thing that is your neigh-
bor's."
In today's society the
only Commandments you
can get arrested for break-
ing is number 6, murder;
number 8, stealing; and
sometimes number 9, lying
(only if you are under oath
in a court of law or filing an
official report). Keeping the
other commandments will
enhance your life and help
prevent you from commit-
ting 6, 8, and 9 but are not
on most books as law of the
land.
But if you keep the 10
commandments you will be
a good Christian, a good
son or daughter, a good
husband or wife, a good
neighbor, an honest person
and someone who is not
materialistic. You would be
the type of person that we
all would like to live next to
and have as a friend. So pay
more attention to the 10
Commandments and your
life will be better for it.

recently at the Florida
Welcome Center on 1-75
in Hamilton County,
when she stopped for
some rest and relaxation
during the trip from her
home in Potter's Springs,
GA, to her grandma's
house in Miami. Accord-
ing to her mom, the little
beauty would stay quiet
during the trip if she was
allowed to wear her
gown. Mom complied and
'Cinderella' complied and
no slippers were lost
along the way and the
story-book princess ar-
rived home before the
stroke of midnight.

The Criminal Justice Di-
vision at Lake City Com-
munity College is a certi-
fied training center
through the Criminal Jus-
tice Standards and Train-
ing Commission. It offers
the basic 532 hour correc-
tions and career develop-
ment courses as well as the
cross-over from correc-
tions to law enforcement.
Opportunities abound
for anyone at least 19 years
old with a high school
diploma or GED. They can
begin at an entry level po-
sition, with a starting
salary of over $30,000 per
year plus benefits, includ-
ing heath and life insur-
ance, and state housing if
qualified. Corrections offi-
cers can retire after 25
years of service as a mem-
ber of one the best retire-
ment systems in the na-
tion. However, there are a
few steps needed to get
qualified and trained as a
corrections officer.
First, applicants must
contact the institutional re-
cruiter of the prison in the
area where they would
-like to work. Then they
must take the Florida Basic
Abilities Test (FBAT)
which is given at the Olus-
tee campus of LCCC every
Tuesday. Call 386-754-
4303 for more information
and to sign up. Once the
FBAT test has been passed
and the applicants have
cleared the hiring process,


they can start academy
training.
The training is 14 weeks
long followed by a four-
week practicum inside the
prison. When the
practicum is completed
there is a week of review
and then a final exam giv-
en by the state of Florida.
Once the exam is passed,
the graduate is a certified
corrections officer. How-
ever, their education does
not have to stop there.
LCCC also offers an Asso-
ciate in Science (A.S.) de-
gree in Corrections that
can be transferred to sev-
eral state colleges that of-
fer a Bachelor of Science
(B.S.) degree program in
Corrections. A B.S. is need-
ed for employment in the
Federal Bureau of Investi-
gations (FBI), the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE), the U.S.
Customs Service, and
many other areas in law
enforcement and correc-
tions.
Graduates could also ad-
vance through the ranks to
the position of correctional
captain, colonel or war-
den. The possibilities and
opportunities in Correc-
tions are limitless. LCCC
encourages interested in-
dividuals to take the leap
and try something new -
maybe a job in corrections
is just the opportunity for
which they have been
searching.

Happy New Year!!!! It is
hard to believe that 2005 is
here. I hope you all ate your
black-eyed peas, hog jowls,
and greens (no matter what
variety they are all good)
on New Year's Day for good
luck. At South Hamilton, we
are off to a GOOD start.
Here are some upcoming
events:
Friday, January 14 Hon-
or Roll Reception 2 p.m. in
Cafeteria
Monday, January 17 -
Martin Luther King Holiday
Tuesday and Wednesday,
February 8 and 9 Fourth
Grade FCAT Writing As-
sessment
February 28-March 4 -
FCAT for Grades 3-6
March 7-11 FCAT for
Grades 3-6
*** I am quite sure that K-
2 Stanford 9 or Stanford 10
Testing will be held either
the week of February 28 or
the week of March 7.
Our Pre- K class is excited
with thier new experiences.
We are using our Leap Pads
for the first time this year.
Our Leap Pads help us with
our pre-reading skills, listen-
ing skills, skills in following
directions, and many other
skills that we need in order
to be ready for Kinder-
garten. Also, we miss Mrs.
Marlene Shaw, who has
been sharing reading with
us from the White Springs
Public Library. Her husband
is really ill and she has not
been with us for a while. We
sent him Get Well Cards.
Miss Runyon and Mrs.
Johnson's kindergarten class
welcomes everyone back
and wishes everyone a Hap-
py New Year!!!!! Students
are getting back into the
swing" of things with writ-
ing, math, and phonics. We
will be continuing letter
sounds and learning how
sentences begin and end.
We are learning about capi-
tal letters, question marks,
and periods. We are very
busy in Kindergarten.
Mrs. Mickler's first


graders had a Christmas
break with lots to tell about
when we returned on Mon-
day. It is now time to buckle
down and get serious about
our work once again. This
week we have been very
busy in math. We have been
working on odd/even num-
bers and counting by 2's, 5's,
and 10's. We are preparing
to take our first major first
grade test in late February -
the Stanford 10 Test. Par-
ents, remember to keep
reading with your child
every night for about 15
minutes. Mrs. Mickler is
stressing "the more students
practice, the better readers
they become."
The second grade class
started studying habitats in
Science this week. Students
identified the elements
needed for a habitat. Stu-
dents discussed the use of
camouflage to protect ani-
mals from danger.
In Math, we began two-
digit subtraction. This is a
challenging concept for stu-
dents. Parents, please prac-
tice with your child at home.
Mrs. Schmid will be sending
worksheets.
Students enjoyed solving
the mystery in "Young Cam
Jansen" in reading. The sto-
ry pointed out the impor-
tance of good character.
Third graders enjoyed a
wonderful winter holiday.
We were all filled with ex-
citement to share our stories
when we returned. Our
reading selection for this
week, "Ananse's Feast" is an
African folktale. We have
enjoyed reading many folk-
tales and discussing the
moral lessons that they
teach. "Look before you
leap; Treat others as you
would like to be treated; By
trying to get more, the
greedy sometimes lose all."
We have related these
lessons to our own lives and
how they can help us. In
math, we have been explor-
ing the concepts of time,
schedules, and calendars.


We are also continuing our
study of "space" in science.
Our student of the week is
Ny'Ira Alexender. Ny'Ira is
a great citizen to our school
and students. She is always
finding ways to help others
and their teacher. Keep up
the good work, Ny'Ira.
Mrs. Howell's fourth
grade is back in swing for
the New Year of 2005, and
we are gearing up for the
upcoming FCAT Writing
Assessment. The upcoming
FCAT Writing Assessment
is just around the comer on
February 8 and 9. If you
missed our 4th grade Christ-
mas musical on December
17, you missed a treat!! The
students did an outstanding
job singing and performing
the musical, "The Little
Christmas Tree's Christmas
Gift." Happy Birthday to
Austin Hughes on January
7. Parents, if any of you have
photos of the Christmas pro-
gram, please share them
with us we would like to
send a copy to the newspa-
per!!!!
Fifth grade students are
busy reviewing fractions in
mathematics and studying
about forces and motion in
math and learning about the
Jr. Iditarod race in Alaska.
We welcome Tyler Allen to
our class. Welcome Tyler!!!!!
Mr. Corbett's sixth grade
has been busy getting ready
for FCAT. Everyone is work-
ing very hard and wants to
do their best on the test.
South Hamilton extends
its sincere sympathy to sixth
grade student and Student
Council President, Mariah
Harrington, on the loss of
her father, Henry Harring-
ton. Mr. Harrington passed
away over the Christmas
holiday, and Mariah and her
family remain in our

mild spring like weather
for the past several days. I
was in Gainesville on Sat-

were enjoying picnics,
barbeques, and "cook
outs" in the many beauti-
ful parks in and around
Gainesville. The "snow-
birds" who fly South each
year for the warm weather
of Florida must truly be in

gan, White Springs. I will
always remember, with
fondness, Hilward Mor-
gan's laughter and his
"zest" for life He always
seemed to have a good
time, and if you were
around him, you had a
good time too. He loved
his family, his church,
Jasper Presbyterian, his
farm, outdoor activities -
hunting and fishing, and
he loved his many friends.
The large number of
friends who called on the
family on Thursday, Janu-
ary 6, at the Harry T. Reid
Funeral Home in Jasper,
as well as the large num-
ber in attendance at funer-
al services on Friday, Jan-

Nancy", as well as all the
Morgan family You are
in our prayers. We love
you.

Running off one last
time at the computer
.......... What in the world
happened to the Oklahoma
Sooners in the Orange
Bowl? That was down right
embarrassing. That Nation-
al Championship game re-
minded me of a game
about ten years ago involv-
ing a team from the state of
Florida and a team from
Nebraska. I wonder what
OU head coach Bob Stoops
would say if Florida and Je-
remy Foley called now?
.......... As for which con-
ference is tougher, the ACC
or SEC, we will have to
wait until next year. Both
conferences finished bowl
season with three wins and
three losses. With Atiburni
finishing the season at 13-0
and a Sugar Bowl victory
that should clearly give the
SEC the edge! ....... Begin-
ning next season, the ACC
will play football aligned
into two six-team divisions,
which will be called the At-
lantic and Coastal. Teams
will play all five opponents
in their division, plus one
primary crossover oppo-
nent every year and two ro-
tating opponents from the
opposite division. The divi-
sional champions will meet
in the league's inaugural


football championship
game, which is scheduled
to be held in Jacksonville,
Florida, on Saturday, De-
cember 3. Without a doubt,
FSU is in the easier divi-
sion, considering they will
only have to beat Boston
College and N.C. State to
make it to Jacksonville. On
the other hand, Miami will
have to beat Ga. Tech, Vir-
ginia, and Virginia Tech.
With Florida State being in
the Atlantic Division and
Miami being in the Coastal
Division, both teams could
now wind up playing two
times a season, which will
probably result in two
Seminole losses if Bobby
still lets his son call the


plays. Junior is an overall
0-5 against the Canes
......... After all those
mumblings before the
Peach Bowl about Miami
head coach Larry Coker,
Cane fans need to remem-
ber who is 8-0 against Flori-
da and FSU ......
Question of the week:
What head coach has won
the most college football
games since 1990? ..........
The "Urban Renewal" has
already begun in
Gainesville with the best
returning offensive and de-
fensive player turning pro.
LB Channing Crowder,
who could possibly be a
late first or early second
draft choice has declared'
himself eligible for the NFL
draft in April. Crowder is
the second Gator turn pro
along with running back
Ciatrick Fason ......... Mi-
ami may have beaten Flori-
da State this season, but the
Canes accomplished a feat
that FSU has yet to do. In
its first season in the ACC,
Miami lost three ACC


league games, including
two at home. Also, as for
official ACC standings, Va.
Tech finished first, FSU fin-
ished second, and Miami
finished third. It was a
tough season for all three
Florida teams considering
that for the first time since
1982, Florida, Miami, or
Florida State did not finish
the season ranked in the
A.P. Top 10.
Answer: FSU head coach
Bobby Bowden has won
155 games at Florida State.
This just in, USC has just
scored again! By the way,
may the God of hope fill
you with all joy and peace'
as you trust in him.
This will be the last arti-
cle for this season. A spe-
cial thanks to all the read-
ers.
May God continue to
bless each of you as he has
,blessed me! Catch you next
year in ........ The End-
Zone.

reached for comments/sugges-
tions at jaburnam@alltel.net


The Gatorade is not even dry on the Orange Bowln playing field, and al-
ready the talk is about next year. Here's a peek at my top 5 for the season.
USC Trojans Even without Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinard. the
Trojans have won 22 consecutive games and returns 16 of its 22 starters
next season.
Texas Longhorns Rumor has it Mack Brown will show the USC game
to his team plenty of times before the Horns face the Sooners in Dallas.
Oklahoma Sooners Even with the drubbing OU took in the Orange
Bowl, the Sooners will be back stronger than ever with Heisman running
back Adrian Peterson.
Florida Gators Even with losing Crowder and Fason. Meyer has a ton
of talent in Gainesville. especially in quarterback Chris Leak!
Miami Hurricanes The Canes could be better off by losing QB Brock
Berlin. The ACC might be a little tougher than the Canes anticipated.

"The Odid Farmer's Almanac Gardener's Companion All-Seasons Garden Guide"


Offering all-time favorites for all year long -


The editors of "The Old
Farmer's Almanac" have
chosen the cream of the crop
* from the archives of the
"Gardener's Companion" and
compiled them together to of-
fer the best of the best in gar-
dening guidance for all four
* seasons.
. Hitting store shelves on
: an. 18, "The Old Farmer's
Almanac Gardener's Com-
panion All-Seasons Garden
Guide" features a landscape
of useful tips, trends, and in-
formation to keep you in-
spired throughout spring,
summer, and autumn.
Inside this stunning, full-
color publication, discover


how to:
Improve your landscape
Create miniature plots -
Tight on space? Grow up in-
stead of out with cucumbers,
pole beans, and squash on lat-
tices using just a square foot
of ground space.
Combine edibles and or-
namentals Fill border gar-
dens with brightly colored
fruit, herbs, and vegetables
such as blueberries, sage, and
peppers to add interesting
shades and flavor.
Buy dirt Soil is a pre-
cious commodity (it takes
500 years for nature to make
an inch of it!). Get top-notch
dirt by making sure you know


where the soil comes from
and what's in it. When you
bring your new topsoil home,
be sure to mix it with your ex-
isting soil rather than just
spread it on top.
Grow a garden room Se-
lect vines to create a "room"
by growing flowering parti-
tions or blooming walls. Fire-
works of color can continue
all season long by planting a
variety of climbing plants.
Enjoy color throughout the
season
Dazzle with dahlias -
Give your garden an extra
burst of color late in the sea-
son with dahlias. These in-
credible beauties, with some
varieties modeling hundreds
of petals on each flower, pre-
fer a slightly cooler tempera-
tures and do best in late Au-
gust to September.
Have fun with hydrangeas
- You'll find the tips and tech-
niques in this detailed article
a great help in adding the col-
or and charm of hydrangeas
to your garden space or in
improving the hydrangeas
you already have. These irre-
sistible blooms will catch
everyone's eye!
Plant foods you love to eat
Start seeds successfully -
Choose seeds carefully based
on your climate and plant
them indoors, keeping in
mind that they'll need to
slowly adapt to life outdoors
before being transplanted.
Before plopping seeds or
seedlings into the ground, test
your soil to see if it's ready
for planting. (Hint: When

Produce succulent straw-

area with direct sunlight and
enough space to stagger or
rotate plants (strawberry
plants yield only for two to
three years) so that you'll
have a bountiful harvest each
year. Deter pests by spread-

around plants and keep birds

Fast facts on farming today


Want to learn more about
farming and gain a better under-
standing and appreciation of
the vital role agriculture
plays in your daily life? The
following are some "fast
facts" to help you out. They
are taken from "Farm Facts," a
booklet produced by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Federation,
the world's largest voluntary or-
ganization of farmers and ranch-
ers.
There are 2.16 million farms
dotting America's rural land-
scape. About 99 percent of U.S.
farms are operated by individu-
als, family partnerships or fami-
ly corporations.
In 2001, $53 billion worth of
American agricultural products
were exported around the world.
The United States sells more


food
and fiber to world markets than
it imports.
More than half of America's
agricultural producers intention-
ally provide habitat for wildlife.
Deer, moose, fowl and other
species have shown significant
population increases during the
past several years.
Modem farming techniques
such as biotechnology, global
positioning satellites and conser-
vation tillage have enabled


America's farmers and ranchers
to produce more food on fewer
acres.
More than 24 million
American workers (17 per-
cent of the total U.S. work-
force) produce, process and
sell the nation's food and fiber.
Farmers and ranchers re-
ceive 19 cents of every dollar
spent on food at home and away
from home. The rest goes to
wages and materials for produc-
tion, processing, marketing,
transportation and distribution.
In 1980, farmers and ranchers
received 31 cents.
U.S. farm policy under the
2002 farm program costs each
American 4.4 cents per meal and
accounts for little more than
one-half of 1 percent of the U.S.
budget.
Ethanol and biodiesel fuels
made from corn, soybeans and
other crops benefit the environ-
ment by promoting energy secu-
rity.
America's farmers and
ranchers bring a variety of edu-
cational experiences to their
agriculture businesses. For ex-
ample, most farmers and ranch-
ers have been trained and certi-
fied in the use of agricultural
chemicals.
Technology is increasingly
used on today's farms and ranch-
es. USDA statistics show that 43
percent of U.S. farms have Inter-
net access and 55 percent have
general access to computers. A
survey of young farmers and
ranchers shows that nearly 87
percent use a computer and
more than three-quarters have
access to the Internet.

Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on ve-
hicles being operated with de-
fects such as bad brakes, worn
tires and defective lighting
equipment. In addition, atten-
tion will be directed to drivers
who would violate the driver li-
cense laws of Florida. The Pa-
trol has found these checkpoints
to be an effective means of en-
forcing the equipment and dri-
ver's license laws of Florida
while ensuring the protection of
all motorists.
