HANDS UP SPECIAL ELECTION: Hamilton County commission chairman calls for a show of hands from the audience
(after voting down the Jai Alai card room), "Do you want a special election to vote on the card room issue?" Public response,
overwhelming "Yes!" Date for special election, March 8. The battle lines are drawn the voters will decide. (Staff Photo)


Referendum on table 3 votes later March 8 Card Room on ballot


Leonard Dramesi
Jasper News EDITOR
Concern about jobs,
progress, religion and
morals, development and
growth, along with a mix-
ture of emotions, feelings
and personalities, were all
present in the Hamilton
County courthouse last
week relative the issue of
gaming in Hamilton Coun-
ty.
At the behest of Rich-
mond Entertainment CEO
Glenn Richards, the matter
was put on the agenda of
the regular county com-
mission meeting "ap-
proval of Card Room for
new Jai Alai fronton," -
slated to be addressed ap-
proximately 7 p.m. in the
court room on Tuesday,
January 18.
The date, time, place and
issue, did not go unrecog-
nized by a wealth of
Hamilton County resi-
dents approximately 200
strong.
Richards is the develop-
er of the Jai Alai fronton,
for Hamilton County at I-
75 and US 129S, approved
by the voters in October of
2003. Accordingly, Rich-
mond Entertainment had
been issued a pari-mutuel
permit by the Florida De-
partment of Business and
Professional Regulation
subsequent to the outcome
of the election. The voters
said "yes" and in accor-
dance with state statute
and said permit, the autho-
rization to conduct wager-
ing on Jai Alai perfor-
mances in Hamilton Coun-
ty was granted.
Throughout the initial
election process, in prelim-
inary presentations, public
forums and discussions,
the inclusion of a Card
Room at the fronton was
broached. However, the
decision for approval of
the gaming room, was set
by state statute and left to
the discretion of the local
county governing body.
In November of last
year, Richards' request for
approval of the entity
within the fronton as con-


struction progressed on
the facility, was denied by
the commission 3-2. At
that time, commissioners
Ronny Morgan, Mike
Adams and Randy Ogburn
voted against the request,
with commissioners Lewis
Vaughn and Leon Mc-
Gauley opting for ap-
proval.
Last week, an overflow
crowd of pro Card Room
supporters, witnessed a re-
peat performance by the
commission. McGauley
and Vaughn for, and
Adams, Ogburn and Mor-
gan against. The card
room application was de-
nied a second time by the
Hamilton County board of
county commissioners.
The results were devas-
tating to the crowd and ob-
viously disappointing to
the developer. Although
the crowd was boisterous
in a non-belligerent man-
ner, it took a alternate sug-
gestion as a course of ac-
tion to command their at-
tention. Pacification came
only after the chairman
put the issue of a possible
public referendum on the
table for consideration.
Morgan called for a
show of hands from the
audience, for those in fa-
vor of a special election to
put the issue (card room at
Jai Alai) to bed. A sea of
hands reached for the ceil-
ing and overwhelming ap-
proval for a special elec-
tion was obvious from the
over-flow crowd in atten-
dance at the meeting. As
required by law, the board
had to vote for approval to
hold a public referendum
relative a card room at the
fronton.
Another 3-2 vote this
time for approval to hold a
special election and put
the matter up for public
consideration. It was a
slight deviation from pre-
vious card room votes by
the commissioners, that
now allowed the matter to
go to a special election -
McGauley, Morgan and
Adams voted for a public
referendum to settle the
card room controversy,


while Ogburn was stead-
fast in his opposition and
was joined by Vaughn
with a negative vote.
Commissioner Vaughn
was given an opportunity
by the chair to qualify his
'nay' vote to the public.
"The people already voted
in favor of this, and I see
no reason why we have to
go to another special elec-
tion on something that was
already approved," noted
Vaughn.
Commission chairman
Morgan made it clearly
understood to his fellow
members and the public,
what was in accordance
with state statute specifi-
cations regarding the spe-
cial election. The outcome
would be binding on the
board. "Yes" or "No" the
board would accept the
will of the people as man-
dated through the ballot
explained Morgan.
The commission then
adjourned from the
packed courtroom meeting
and reconvened in the reg-
ular board meeting room
across the hall at the cour-
thouse. Everyone was in
accord for a referendum -


the people, the .commis-
sioners, the developer -
and a vote to set a date for
a special election was fi-
nalized....March 8. It was
three votes later in one
night on one issue before a
consensus was 'reached.
The vote designating the
date (March 8) went
Adams, McGauley and
Morgan for, with Vaughn
and Ogburn against.
The initial Jai Alai elec-
tion in October of '03
brought 3,119 voters to the
polls 1,990 voted "yes"
and 1,124 voted "no" on
the subject of ratification
of the permit issued for
pari-mutual wagering in
Hamilton County by the
state of Florida. The" issue
this time around, has far
greater implications and is
expected to amplify voter
turn-out considerably
when the final tally is tak-
en March 8.
Although emotions and
spirits ran high at the
meeting last week, civility
prevailed throughout a
hotly debated issue be-
tween the public and its
government here in
Hamilton County.

Technical assistance pays


long-term benefits to


agricultural producers


While the promise of finan-
cial aid in the form of cash
benefits is often the major at-
traction of the US Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Trade
Adjustment Assistance Pro-
gram (TAA), in the end, it is
the technical training ele-
ments that provide the great-
est overall benefits, users say.
Farmers, fishermen and
other producers of raw agri-
cultural and seafood com-
modities impacted by foreign
imports of competing prod-
ucts have until January 31 to
petition the USDA if they
hope to take advantage of the
technical training benefits
and even potentially qualify
for financial relief.
The technical training ben-
efits available through TAA
are designed to help produc-
ers and fishermen improve
productivity and explore ad-
ditional commodities, mar-
keting opportunities, and al-
Sternative enterprises. The
program is designed to pro-
vide financial relief, technical
support, retraining services
and even a potential out-
reach strategy for producers
who suffered from a 20 per-
cent or greater decline in pro-
ducer prices due to compet-
Sing imports. All eligible pro-
j ducers receive technical
Straining and may receive
cash benefits up to $10,000,
depending on the amount of
e production marketed and if
-they meet certain income cri-

teria.
Once a particular industry
has qualified for TAA assis-
tance, the technical training
program is mandatory be-
fore they become eligible for
cash benefits. After complet-
ing the training, applicants
who receive a cash benefit
are eligible to apply for bene-
fits through the US Depart-
ment of Labor's Employment
and Training Administration
program. Department of La-
bor benefits, according to
USDA personnel, may also
include education grants and
training designed to facilitate
a producer's departure from
farming or fishing.
Petitions must be filed by a
group of three or more pro-
ducers or an authorized rep-
resentative, and they may be
made on behalf of a state, re-
gion or the nation as a whole.
Producers interested in for-
mally petitioning to USDA's
Trade Adjustment Assis-'::
tance program must com-
plete their paperwork and
fax to the USDA headquar-
ters in Washington at 202-
720-0876 before January 31.
They may also be sent
through e-mail.
Petition forms are available
online at
www.fas.usda.gov/itp/taa/

be requested by phone at

KidCare sign-up


ends Sunday


% .4
w2 If) I!
'34w


January 30 is the deadline
for enrollment for the Florida
KidCare program, a state
funded program that provides
health care coverage for those
children whose families do
not qualify for Medicaid. This
is the first open enrollment in
18 months. The enrollment
period ends Sunday, January
30. Since the end date is Sun-
day, applications must be
mailed on Saturday, January
29 to be postmarked within
the deadline.
The projected number of
children to be covered this
year is 398,000. So far over
284,000 children were en-
rolled at the first of the year.
Applicants must attach their
most recent income tax forms,
generally 2003, at this time. A
family of four with an income
of less then $37,000 qualifies
and the limit increases with
more children.
It is important to get signed-
up. KidCare costs $15 or $20
a month in premiums. Many
private, employer sponsored
plans cost over $100 per week
and are unaffordable to many
people. This is an opportunity
for parents to insure their chil-
dren at an affordable price.
Applications are available
at the Hamilton County Phar-
macy Assistance Program of-
fices, the Hamilton County
Health Department, Depart-
ment of Children and Families
offices and on the Internet at
http://www.healthykids.org.
Applications in Spanish are


available and assistance com-
pleting them in Spanish is
available at the Health De-
partment.
For many families, free or
lower cost prescription medi-
cine is available in Hamilton
County. Anyone taking any
medicine for over a few
months may be eligible to 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 Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance 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 Ave. It is
open daily from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. The telephone number is
792-2143.

Meticulous referendum review


Florida Arbor Day
emphasizes the
importance of native trees


In recognition of Florida's
Arbor Day, the Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) is encouraging Floridi-
ans to protect the State's nat-
ural woodlands, hardwood
hammocks and mangrove
forests by planting native
trees and preventing the
spread of invasive plants. In
Florida, late winter is an ideal
time for planting native trees,
including the sabal palm,
Florida's State tree, making
Florida's Arbor Day several
weeks earlier than the nation-
al observance.
Arbor Day, the creation of
Julius Sterling Morton, first
took place in 1872 in Nebras-
ka. Throughout his career,
Morton worked to improve
agricultural techniques
throughout the United States,
serving as President Grover
Cleveland's Secretary of Agri-
culture.
In 1970, President Richard
Nixon proclaimed the last Fri-
day in April as National Arbor
Day. Since then, every state in
the nation and many countries



adp tos


around the world have desig-
nated their own Arbor Day.
Florida celebrates the third
Friday in January as Arbor
Day.
Trees play a primary role in
environmental protection by
conserving energy, reducing
soil erosion, cleaning and re-
plenishing the air and protect-
ing rivers and streams. Planti-
ng native trees will provide
habitat for wildlife and beauti-
fy communities.

As I See It..


Inaugural Observation
Did you hear or have an oppor-
tunity to witness any segment of
last week's inauguration of Presi-
dent Bush in Washington?
I did and I must admit I was
comfortable with and related to
most of what he had to say. One
S statement in particular resonated
well with me, because as I see it
it had a local implication.
By Leonard Dramesi In his inauguration speech,
Jasper News EDITOR President Bush intoned, "It is hu-
man choices that moves events."
Of course he was referring to our nation the United States of
America and in particular the international community as-a
whole.
But in my mind, I imagined he was also conscious of hap-
penings in Hamilton. Yes, our community! And his state-
ment, "it is human choices that move events," was most ap-
propriate and applicable to current events swirling around
Jennings, Jasper and White Springs.
Pause and reflect for a moment, as we traverse the often
treacherous shoals of a special election on March 8. It is in-
herently accurate to understand that "human choices" will
indeed "move events" here in Hamilton County within the
very near future. George Bush is on the verge of four more
years. Hamilton County is on the verge of its very own fu-
ture.
It may sound like a stretch to you a remark and a refer-
ence from Washington to Hamilton but not to me. He was
right on the mark. "Human choices" certainly will "move
events."
Thanks for the thought and insight Mr. President.

A Visionary Course

Jasper News Editor:
October 7, 2003,.was supposed to be the start of a new
day for Hamilton County, when the people, not politi-
cians, decided to bring much-needed change to the eco-
nomic future of this area. That was the day Hamilton
County voters overwhelmingly approved pari-mutuel
wagering.
Fast forward 15 months ... and here we are again. A
few county commissioners are still digging in their heels
and not listening to the majority of their constituents.
Three county commissioners would not vote to approve
a low-stakes card room to be operated at the Jai-Alai
fronton, a business that would create approximately an
additional 100 jobs. Once again the commissioners are
putting the matter in the voters' hands.
This set-back is upsetting to myself and many others,
especially since the money which will now have to be
spent to fund the election could have been used towards
my charitable organization, "Hamilton Housing for Hu-
manity." The turn-out of my supporters at the board
meeting last Tuesday proved to me that the people of
this county do want positive growth, investments, a
larger tax base, and of course, jobs!
Once again, you, the people of Hamilton County, have
the power to vote and do what some of your elected of-
ficials will not. You can vote YES and make the decision
to bring more jobs and financial prosperity to the area.
All around the county you can already see the oppor-
tunities being generated since you last voted YES for
economic success 15 months ago, and there is so much
more prosperity ahead for the county.
I am not a quitter. This set-back will not stop me from
keeping the promises we made to the residents of this
county.
I need your help, though. Please vote YES on March 8.
Thank you.

President, Richmond Entertainment, Inc.

Accident not an option

Dear Editor:
I am a mother here in Hamilton County that has two
teenage sons who drive to and from our new high school
located on Hwy 129. There is a potential danger for all of
our children and the adults that go in and out of that
school. During certain times of the day it is very difficult
to get in and out because of the oncoming traffic. This,
along with the age of a lot of the drivers, is a tragedy in
waiting!
I feel that we need a red light or at least some type of
flashing light to alert traffic that they are in a school
zone. I have been speaking with the DOT since October
2, 2004. I called and spoke with the supervisor, Tony,
who told me that we needed to have a survey to see if
that would warrant a light. The other thing that they
would consider was traffic accidents at the location. I ex-
plained to him that if we wait on an accident that it will
be a tragic one.
I received a call back this week from Jimmy with DOT,
who stated that the survey was done and no type of light
was warranted. I asked about a flashing light such as the
one on Hwy 41 that is used for Greenwood. He told me
that they do not use flashing lights for high schools, only
for elementary schools.
I have called County Commissioner Leon McGauley
and our Assistant Superintendent Ron Hobbs who both
are in agreement that we need a light. Mr. Hobbs stated
that they tried when the new school was being built to
get some type of light there but the DOT would not
budge. They are both willing to do what ever is neces-
sary to help the people of Hamilton County protect their
children!
I have started a petition to give to Governor Bush
when he comes to Jasper tomorrow.
Do we have to wait on a tragedy to get the DOT's at-
tention?

Feeling What's Right

To The Editor:
My heart goes out to the three county commissioners
who were brave enough to stick to their principles on
the January 18 meeting concerning card playing in our
county. I'm proud our leaders serve the Lord and are
100 % Christian first. That is what is best for the peo-
ple. Our commissioners deserve our thanks and appre-
ciation for enduring constant opposition and threats.
As for being a minority, I believe I recall someone in
the Bible who was, and we celebrate His birthday every
December. As for a phrase taken from the meeting,
"the will of the people," it was the will of the people to
crucify Him. It just proves democracy is only as good
as the people who represent it. It's time to vote from
our hearts, not our pocketbooks.

A "Life-long" Opinion

Dear Mr. Editor:
Please accept this letter as my public endorsement for
the proposed card room at Hamilton Downs Jai Alai.
As a lifelong resident of Hamilton County, I along
with my entire family, have watched past opportuni-
ties for growth, jobs and an improved tax base lost to
other communities, counties and even other states sim-
ply because our county commissioners would not work
with the new businesses and industries desiring to lo-
cate her. One that comes to mind was the cargo airport
eyeing the area and Spirit of the Suwannee lost to an-
other county, plus others.
Friends, let's not lose anymore businesses; instead,
let's say a grateful "thank you" and welcome to Mr.
Glenn Richards of Richmond Entertainment and allow
him to lead us into growth, jobs and a better tax base.
Let's vote "yes" for the card room on March 8.
I would further like to say "thank you" to the only
two seated county commissioners Leon McGauley and
Lewis Vaughn, who support growth, jobs, revenue and
an increased tax base in the county. These gentlemen
have shown they do have a positive vision for Hamil-
ton County. I salute you!
Folks, I have witnessed, researched and traveled at
my own expense to see the outcome of cities and coun-
ties and states with active card rooms. I've traveled to
Atlantic, NJ, up and down the Mississippi Delta and
the Mississippi Gulf coast.
Here's what I saw: five-star hotels, fine dining
restaurants, new establishments, new homes, and yes,
locals working and delighted for the growth they are
experiencing. I have seen the Mississippi changed from
one of the poorest states in the nation with very limit-
ed job opportunities to one of the most beautiful states
I have ever been to. I might add that Biloxi, MS has one
of the largest and nicest shopping malls in the country.
All came about because of the increased revenue and
the job opportunity they presently have. My dream is
for Hamilton County to experience the same gain. One
final thought: Why should we allow the revenue that
will be generated to pass through our area and end up
in Mississippi? Let's reap the money here in Hamilton
County.
Again, my family and I "thank" Mr. Richards. He is
the type of gentleman we want and need to invest in
our county. Again, we say "yes, yes" to the card room.
Mr. Editor, thank you for giving me this opportunity
to publicly support a noble cause.

Preparing the way of the Lord


John the Baptist is a very
interesting character of the
Bible not to mention the im-
portance of his ministry in the
relation to the coming of the
Messiah. His existence was
prophesied from the book of
Isaiah, and announced by the
Angle Gabriel in the New
Testament. His birth was a
miracle because his father
and mother had both lived be-
yond their child bearing age.
His linage on both his father's
side and mother's side was
from the priesthood of Israel.
He was filled with the Holy
Spirit in his mother's womb
when he met the Messiah


who was Himself in His
mother's womb.
John's ministry was a sim-
ple one: Prepare the way for
the coming of the Lord. He
did this by living a righteous
life preparing himself in the
Word of God until the age of
30. Most scholars believe that
he was raised in the wilder-
ness near the Dead Sea by the
same people who taught and
preserved the Dead Sea
Scrolls. When he was thirty
he started the ministry God
created him for by preaching
the same message Isaiah did
in the first 39 chapters of Isa-
iah; rebuking sin and warning


of the wrath of sin. John
preached that people could be
forgiven of their sins and
should be baptized in water to
confirm and make public their
forgiveness. Then John told
those people to go and live a
new lifestyle of righteousness
by sharing with others in
need, being fair in business,
by not intimidating others,
not accusing others falsely,
and not to be envious of oth-
ers.
Isn't the ministry of John
the Baptist the same ministry
Jesus left the church to do till
He comes back the second
time? Just like John, the
church was prophesied from
the Old Testament and an-
nounced by Jesus in the New.
Like John, the birth of the
church was a miracle; the way
Jesus was resurrected and as-
cended into heaven with Him
giving instruction to preach
the gospel. Like John, the

church was filled with the

And also like John we are to
preach the gospel to every
creature so he who believes
and is baptized will be saved.
Like John the church has
spent years in personal prepa-

church to come up out of the
wilderness and take a fore-
front in the world. This front
makes its way before all peo-
ple. Like John we will have to
confront political leaders as
he did Herod, religious lead-
ers as he did the Pharisees and
Sadducees, and mankind like
he did throughout the entire
region.
It is my belief and the belief
of many others in the church
that Jesus is coming back
soon. He has prepared us to
do this ministry; now he ex-
pects us, like John, to prepare
the Way of the coming of the
Lord.

With "jumping" enthusiasm,


role models stress drug free


attitude in North Hamilton


Melody Lee
Jasper News Staff
NHE Coach Begue invited
his former teammate, Mark
Rothstein, and their former
coach, Kevin Meistickle, to
speak to the students at NHE
about staying drug-free, phys-
ically fit and getting a good"
education. Rothstein, world
record-holder rope jumper,
presented a program stressing
the importance of having good
manners and being honest, as
well as staying drug-free and
physically fit. Meistickle, for-
mer relief pitcher for several
major league baseball teams,
emphasized the importance of
a good education.
Rothstein's performance re-
sembled a dance routine as he
jumped and hopped to music
in a variety of movements and


maneuvers. He entertained the
audience with rope jumping
tricks while slipping in
lessons about manners, such
as saying "ma'am, sir,
please," and "thank you." His
expressive face reflected de-
light and amazement as he in-
teracted with audience.
After first-grader Demi
Munn gamely met Rothstein's
challenge to jump a very short
rope with her eyes closed, he
showed dismay when the au-
dience expected him to do the
same trick. But he complied
as the children cheered him
on.
Then Rothstein challenged
sixth-grader Eric McLaine to
jump a rope that weighed five
pounds. When the plucky lad
had completed 10 jumps,
Rothstein met the audience's
challenge 23 jumps with the
heavy rope on one foot with


one arm under the raised leg.
After the excitement of
Rothstein's show, the pace
slowed down as Meistickle,
talked to the fifth- and sixth-
graders about his career and
education. He was a relief
pitcher for the. Minnesota
Twins, New York Mets, At-
lanta Braves, and Pittsburgh
Pirates. He also played on
teams in Canada and Mexico.
He is currently coaching the
Atlanta Crackers.
Meistickle not only encour-
aged the children to stay drug-
free, but to stay alcohol-free
and steroid-free. According to
him, he is prouder of his de-
grees in sociology and psy-
chology than of his baseball
achievements. "The most im-
portant things are As and Bs;
forget the Cs," he told the
children. "Education will lead
you to a better path in life."

CITRUS TOURNAMENT: The sound of that little ball zinging off the wall this past weekend at the
Orlando Jai Alai fronton, can already be heard in Hamilton County. The season action which be-
gan in Orlando, moves on to Ocala and will coming to the local area in July. Hamilton Downs Jai
Alai developer Glenn Richards (center) is flanked by designated player-manager for the local fa-
cility, Carlos Pita (left) and Hamilton Downs consultant Santi Echanic. The annual Citrus Invita-
tional Tournament was held Saturday in Orlando. Jai Alai players pictured with individual
plaques and team trophy include front and back court winners Aldazabal and Rekalde, along
with the team winning pair of Goikoetxea and Elizegi. Many of the players competing at the in-
vitational will be moving on to Hamilton County in July when the local Jai Alai facility has its
grand-opening and begins its first competitive season joining the "fastest sport in the world."

Fast game on fast track


HAMILTON DOWNS JAI ALAI: An architectural rendering depicting a frontal view of the Jai Alai
fronton presently under construction on 129S at 1-75 exit 451 in Hamilton County, is slated for
circuit competition the beginning of July. According to developer Richmond Entertainment, steel
erection will be in place in February, followed by roof enclosure and interior finish in time to ac-
commodate Jai Alai play by July. North Florida circuit action, which includes Hamilton Downs,
is presently underway in Orlando, will move to Ocala next, and ultimately advance to Hamilton
completing the '05 season. (Rendering submitted)

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Here's hoping that by the
time this comes out, and you
are where it is warm, that
most of the cold weather is
behind us; even now we can
look at television and be
thankful we live where we do,
except for those of you who
may read the paper far away
from Hamilton County.
Wherever you are, stay warm,
stay out of the cold as much
as you can. My sister and her
husband were in N.C.
(Franklin, of course) and got
up Friday morning and decid-
ed they needed to be back
home in Crystal River; they
called Saturday morning to
let me know they were back
in warmer country; they did-
n't see any snow while they
were gone.
Reports from First Baptist
Church and Calvary Baptist
indicate that their January
Bible Study was "great."
Sorry I did not make it but am
thankful it was a blessing to
many who did attend.
We tried to follow up on a
note to First Baptist Church,
Jasper, from Jan Weber-
Baumgartner, who has been
having many health prob-
lems. She has had surgery re-
cently, been taking treat-
ments, and although she is
still having difficulties plans
to back at work soon. Jan
lives in Castleberry, FL, near


Orlando; she is the daughter
of Mary Weber and the late
Paul Weber. We were not able
to learn much about her sister
Cheryl (Cherry); Carol lives
in Tallahassee and the mother,
Mary, is in a nursing home in
Tallahassee. Mary Weber
taught piano to many young
people in the county, Paul
was with the Soil Conserva-
tion Service and the three
girls all attended school in
Hamilton County. Jan had
written a note to First Baptist
in Jasper, thanking them for
their prayers and concern.
News of Susan Clay,
daughter of Dr. George and
Mary Clay, after 30 years of
working in Washington, DC,
Susan has moved to Rhode
Island to make her home. Su-
san felt that 30 years was long
enough to stay in Washing-
ton, and having vacationed in
RI decided it would be a good
place to live. She loves it
there. Susan was home re-
cently for a short visit with
her parents, and her sister,
Debbie, Steve and their chil-
dren Christy and Clay. Deb-
bie and her family live in
Madison. Debbie is associat-
ed with North Fla. Jr. Col-
lege; Steve is head of quality
control, Smithfield (formerly
Winn-Dixie meat packing);
Christy married last summer
and is teaching at Central


School in Madison, Clay has
just finished at NFJC and will
be entering Florida State.
Guests of Judge R.B. and
Mrs. Cecil Davis during the
holidays were their daughter-
in-law Amy Davis and triplet
grandsons, Jeffry Jr., Mike
and Samuel, sons of their son,
the late Jeffry Davis Sr. With
them from Kansas City, MO,
were Amy's parents, Patricia
and Nathan David. Also visit-
ing them was their son and
daughter-in-law, Capt. David
and Jennifer Davis, who have
returned to Dallas, Texas.
County-wide brotherhood
will be this Thursday, January
27 at 7 p.m at First Baptist
Church, Jasper. Guest Speak-
er will be Jim Tatum. Mr
Tatum, who is a friend of Dr.
Bill Floyd, pastor of First
Baptist, is owner of Tatum's
Men's Shops, Jacksonville, he
is a member of First Baptist
Church, Jacksonville and is
on the Board of Missions for
the Florida Baptist Conven-
tion. Dr. Floyd said that Mr.
Tatum has a good Christian
ministry and encourages all
men in the County to attend.
The men are asked to bring a
covered dish.
It is hoped that Governor
Jeb Bush will receive a hearty
(and warm) welcome when he
comes to Jasper on Friday.
Gov. Bush was present for the
opening of the Farmer's Mar-
ket here but we think he was
with the Department of Com-
merce at that time. He also
was the speaker several years
ago at the annual Chamber of
Commerce meeting.

low", and "glistening". We
have discussed, drawn, and
acted out many of our new
words. We have also been
working hard in our FCAT
"Blast Off' Books getting

Will the Groundhog see his
shadow next week? We really
wonder, don't we? Americans
have such wonderful "special
days" that are wrought with
various superstitions. Some
people might refer to these su-
perstitious practices as "pagan"
or "misdirected," but I really
find a lot of them just plain fun.
Superstitions such as the
"groundhog" or "eating black-
eyed peas, hog jowls, and
greens" on New Year's Day for
good luck, or getting wet in the
"first May rain," so you will
have good luck, or having a
man rather than a woman be
the first to walk through your
door on New Year's Day so you
will have good luck all year,
and I could go on, and on. Our
regional and national supersti-
tions do much to make us the
unique, wonderful nation and
region that we are, and "super-
stitions" add a little interest
and quirky fun to everyday life
and, in my opinion, we can al-
ways use a little more fun and a
little more laughter and fun in
life.
Our community received the
sad news this past week that
SValinda Subic, longtime park
manager of the Stephen Foster
SFolk Culture State Park, will be
leaving our community in the
very near future. Valinda is
Moving to the Apopka-Orlando
area where she is taking a job
as assistant district coordinator
for one of the park service dis-
tricts that runs from the Apopka
area down to San Sebastian.
She has been with us here in
White Springs for nearly ten
Years. We will miss all the
SSubic family here in our com-
munity. Valinda has meant
much to our park and our com-
munity. She will be assuming
Sher duties in central Florida, ef-
fective March 1. Our commu-


nity will bid a fond farewell to
Valinda Subic and wish her all
the best in her new position. We
will never forget her and all her
many contributions, and we
know she will always remem-
ber us with fondness "Way
Down Upon the Suwannee
River."
The sympathy of the White
Springs community is extended
to the family of Mr. Henry D.
Vickers, Jasper. A lifetime resi-
dent of Hamilton County, Mr.
Vickers lived a long life of over
92 years. He and his wife,
Louise, were "fixtures" in our
community, and Henry Vickers
was a "real character" impish
with a keen sense of humor. I
was honored to serve as an
honorary pallbearer at his fu-
neral services on Sunday, Janu-
ary 23, at First Baptist Church,
Jasper.
When I use the term "charac-
ter", I do mean it in the most
complimentary of terms.
Hamilton County, during my
childhood, was blessed with a
number of colorful "charac-
ters" who added a very unique
stamp to our community life
with some kind of uniqueness
that enriched our lives. In
White Springs, I think of the
late "Miss" Orrie Moore
Kendrick, longtime community
activist, piano teacher, and
property owner, as one of our
town's real "characters". Each
night she drove around White
Springs with her little Boston
Bulldog "Junie Bug" in the
back seat of her old White Fair-
lane, and people would say,
"There goes 'Miss Orrie'
putting the town to sleep." I can
also remember, with fondness,
the late Gus Pender, a wizened
old African American man who
was an expert:'plumber arid
handyman. He knew more
about the water works of the


Town of White Springs than
anyone, and people respected
his knowledge and ability. I can
still picture him, in my mind's
eye, with his wooden toolbox
full of tools on the way to some
job. He was a "character" and a
fixture in our community. Each
community had its own "char-
acters", and I could go on and
on. As the small town South
rapidly changes, and society,
for whatever reason, becomes
less homogenous and provin-
cial, we see a definite erosion of
what constitutes local charac-
ters. I am pleased I came along
during a time and era when true
characters made our small com-
munities a little more unique
and colorful. The cherished
memories I have of so many lo-
cal characters is another reason
I end my column each week
with "Have a good week
Hamilton County I love you."
The Dollar General Store in
White Springs is nearing com-
pletion, and I do thank Mr.
Glenn Richards of Richards
Entertainment, Inc., for being
one of the major investors and
backers of this project. This
business will provide jobs for
some of our local citizens, and I
do appreciate that so very
much.
The old Town Hall of White
Springs has been restored. I ap-
preciate the efforts of the Town
Council, the Mayor, and the
Town Manager in seeing to it
that the old Town Hall has been
lovingly restored. I really don't
know what the plans are for the
Town Hall, but if the town de-
cides to lease or rent it, I really
think it should be to a business
or organization who will do
something positive for the com-
munity and perhaps create ajob
that will add to the economic
base of the community. In my
opinion, it should not be rented,
leased or otherwise to some in-
dividual simply to utilize as that
person sees fit, because it may
or may not fit into the scheme
of their own "wells and wish-
es". Just an opinion.
Wendy Spencer and hus-
band, Jack, hosted a dinner on
.Saturday, January 22, at their
home on SE- 154th Ave. For
those of you who have lived her
a long time, that is the New


Jerusalem Church Road across
Swift Creek and not far from
Irene Morgan's and Richard
and Mattie Fouraker's resi-
dences.
I believe the Wendy and
Jack's home was built by the
Miles' when Rev. Miles was the
pastor at the Suwannee Church
of the Nazarene, Facil. Wendy
and Jack hosted a traditional
Scottish dinner for many
friends and acquaintances in the
area. Jack wore the traditional
kilt, and the evening included a
poem by the true Bard of Scot-
land Robert Bums. In fact,
everyone participated in read-
ing a poem by Burs about the
traditional Scottish dish "Hag-
gis" that was served at Wendy
and Jack's dinner. There were,
in addition, to a large number of
local guests, some of our ex-
tended Folk Festival family in-
cluding Ken and Nancy
Buchanan, Loxahatchee, who
were overnight guests of Nora
Lang, River Street, White
Springs, and Howard Pardue,
Tallahassee. Our thanks to
Wendy and Jack for being such
gracious hosts. Jack is a native
of Scotland, and I really en-
joyed hearing his stories of
Robert Bums and was enlight-
ened about Bums' many contri-
butions to the collection of tra-
ditional Scottish songs Burns
wrote many songs himself in-
cluding "Auld Lang Syne" the
traditional New Year's Eve
Song. Now that Wendy and,
Jack are living in our area, they
will have to paraphrase the
Scottish ditty and sing "You
take the high road, and I'll take
the low road, and I'll be at
Swift Creek afore ye."
In the words of the late
Maude Havener "A good time
was had by all."
Gloria Hunter, who is my
neighbor on the "Woodpecker
Route", CR 135, has obtained a
new pet a wonderful Golden
Retriever Dog, who is very well
kept and very well trained. Glo-
ria related to me that she knows
this dog is someone's pet, and if
anyone in our reading area has
knowledge of a lost Golden Re-
triever, please gvGploria a cal
at 397-2418. Thank you.
The Suwannee Bicycle Asso-
ciation hosted their annual "Idi-


daride" event in White Springs
over the weekend of January
21. There were lots of bicycles
and bicyclists in and around our
town over the weekend. The
community extends its thanks
to Lys and David Burden for
hosting this event in our town.
The bicyclists are a valuable as-
set to our Nature and Heritage
concept here in White Springs,
and they have been faithful sup-
porters of our community for a
long time. Lys and David al-
ways give back to the commu-
nity, and we can always count
on them for a nice contribution
each year to our Stephen Foster
Citizens Support Organization
or other local clubs and organi-
zations. Dr. Jerry Smith, Jasper,
informed me on Sunday after-
noon at Henry Vickers' funeral,
that he was a participant in the
bicycle event held this past
weekend in White Springs. Hu-
morously, he related that he had
not seen me among the cyclists.
I have seriously considered rid-
ing one of the ten speeds, but,
really, I don't want to overpow-


er or dazzle anyone with the
great style of my spandex rid-
ing outfits, so I will pass. No
need in making others feel less
than they are when you have so
much "more" to share, as it
were (just kidding). I am glad
Dr. Smith did participate in the
event. There are people of all
ages who participate in the bi-
cycling events.
Please remember the follow-
ing in prayer: Ralph Hardwick,
J.M. Morgan, Pearsall Fourak-
er, Amy Claxton, Verna Mae
Johnson, Ella Taylor, Tommie
Smith, Jean Padgett, Ada Reg-
ister, Ben Register, Ceil Pound,

and career of Lou Gehrig in
our Scott Foresman series. We
are also working towards the
FCAT Writing Assessment of
February 8 and 9.
Mr. Daniels' fifth grade stu-
dents continue enjoying their
time in the computer lab. Stu-
dents enjoy working on a vari-

ing selection this week about a
native American boy, and his
struggles in the wilderness!


Mr. Corbett's sixth graders
are working hard this week in
preparation for the FCAT. In
math, we are studying trian-
gles and circles. We have also
been learning about the area of
triangles and circles, and we
have been learning about the
concept of "pi" (3.14). Violet
Williams, along with many of
our other students, has worked
hard to understand about the
area of a triangle.

Progress Energy Florida
recovered more than $2.8
million from customers
who stole electricity in
2004.
"Stealing electricity is
just like stealing any other
product," said Willette
Morman-Perry, director of
customer service for
Progress Energy Florida.
"While most of our cus-
tomers pay what they owe,
there are some who think
they can get away with
stealing energy."
Energy theft can be a
felony under state law de-
pending on the amount
stolen. Last year in Florida,
the company completed
4,353 investigations in
which theft was deter-


A I


mined to have occurred.
The amount recovered in
2004 was slightly up from
2003.
"We aggressively inves-
tigate cases of energy theft,
recover as much lost rev-
enue as possible, and when
appropriate press criminal
charges," Morman-Perry
added. "At the same time,
our energy theft program
benefits our customers by
identifying and removing
fraudulent and potentially
unsafe devices that are
used to steal electricity."
To report energy theft,
please call Progress Ener-
gy's toll-free customer ser-
vice line at 1-800-700-8744.

Everglades restoration

to be accelerated


Addressing a roomful of
scientists, environmental
advocates and government
leaders, Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) Secretary Colleen
Castille highlighted Flori-
da's progress to restore
America's Everglades at


the opening reception of
the 20th Annual Ever-
glades Coalition Confer-
ence. The largest environ-
mental restoration project
in the nation's history, the
30-year, $8 billion State-
federal partnership is re-
plenishing vast expanses
of wildlife habitat and re-
viving the famed River of
Grass.
"Florida is making un-
precedented progress to
restore America's Ever-
glades ahead of schedule
and under budget," said
Secretary Castille. "As a di-
rect result of our progress,
nature is making a vibrant
return to the River of Grass
and millions of Floridians
are benefiting from addi-
tional flood protection and
water supply."
Florida has acquired 51
percent of the land needed
for the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration
Plan, invested more than
$1 billion and committed
another $2.5 billion
through the end of the
decade to clean up and re-
store the River of Grass.
Florida's 41,000 acres of
stormwater treatment ar-
eas, which use plants to
clean pollution from water


entering the Everglades,
are performing better than
expected. The world's
largest constructed wet-
land, STA 3/4, removed 40
tons of phosphorus this
year while treating more
than 445,000 acre-feet of
water the equivalent of 6
million residential swim-
ming pools.
Last year was one of the
best breeding years in re-
cent record for wading
birds in South Florida.
With more than 45,000
nests recorded by scien-
tists, the year's nesting in-
creases by white ibises,
wood storks and snowy
egrets the three wading
bird species that have de-
clined the most in the last
half century are the best
recorded in decades.
Florida is stepping up
the pace of restoration to
complete eight key Ever-
glades projects over the
next seven years. Water
managers started the first
accelerated project the
Everglades Agricultural
Area Reservoir in Palm
Beach County which will
capture and store agricul-
tural runoff and freshwater
releases from Lake Okee-
chobee when complete.

Mission with a purpose


CHE challenges its students with

"Mission Possible: FCAT 2005"


Central Hamilton Elemen-
tary School staff and students
gathered on the tennis courts
last week to participate in a
kick-off rally for "Mission
Possible: FCAT 2005". CHE
staff originated the Mission
Possible theme, in order to
motivate and encourage stu-
dents to excel on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test and Stanford-10
Achievement test. These as-
sessments, which will be ad-
ministered in February and
March, evaluate student per-
formance on Sunshine State
Standards taught throughout
the school year. The objec-
tives of "Mission Possible"
are that each student main-
tain a level three or above on
the FCAT, jump a level, and
make one or more year's
growth on the assessment.
Each student and homeroom
teacher accepted a "top se-

cret" mission from principal,
Clifford Cooks, a.k.a. "CHE
Bureau Chief Cooks" during
the rally.
This week, Mission Possi-
ble began with each student
being administered a pre-test
on Monday morning. The
pre-test score from Monday
will be compared to a post-
test given on Friday. Students
making a gain between the
pre and post-tests, or who
scored 70 or above on the
test will be eligible to partic-
ipate in the drawing. The
CHE School Improvement
Committee provided prizes
and incentives for the pro-
gram. Prizes may include,
but are not limited to gift cer-
tificates, bicycles, televi-
sions, and stereos. Anyone
interested in donating a
prize, may contact Julie Gant
at 792-6538.
The program runs for five


weeks prior to the adminis-
tration of the FCAT and Stan-
ford-10. Incentives will also
be awarded when assessment
scores are received in May.
In other CHE news, second
graders enjoyed the program
"The Bone Zone". The pro-
gram was presented by
Suwannee River Area Health
Education Center. The stu-
dents learned how many
bones there are in the body,
what the bones looked like,
and what is required to have
strong bones.
Both staff and students at
CHE are very busy working
on FCAT skills. The hard
work and effort is expected to
garner high results at test time.

Families Peel the Pain

of Migraines
Like many of the 28 million Americans who experience migraines, Angle has
struggled for years to find relief from her pain.
"Since I was about 18 years old, I have had severe, incapacitating migraines
that interfered with almost everything I did," says Angle, a working mother in
her early thirties from St. Louis. "I took medication, but my headaches would
often come back, sometimes even worse than the first attack. Nothing seemed
to provide relief." The pain and debilitation that resulted affected both her
business and family relationships.
Migraine attacks are characterized by severe, even disabling pain, visual
disturbances such as bright flashing lights or blind spots, and sensitivity to light
and sound. Some people also experience feelings of exhaustion, muscle aches,
food cravings, mood swings, nausea and vomiting in addition to the pain.
Now, a new assessment tool called the Migraine Attack Profile (MAP) is
available from the National Headache Foundation (NHF) and allows migraine
sufferers to map the duration of each of the three phases of their migraine attack
-- from pre-headache to migraine to post-headache. Although attacks can
change over time, MAP can aid in the discovery of an overall migraine pattern,
which doctors analyze to select the most appropriate course of treatment. In
other words, MAP
helps patients
communicate .-
better with their
doctors who in
turn can develop a ,
more strategic
plan of attack
against migraine
pain.
"Over time, most '
people with H
migraine have
many different
types of attacks,"
says Timothy R.
Smith, M.D., WHEN A FAMILY MEMBER suffers from migraines, it can be a burden
R.Ph., a headache on everyone. A new tool from the National Headache Foundation helps
specialist at Ryan sufferers give doctors the information they need to develop the most
adache Ce r effective course of treatment and help ease the pain.
Headache Center
in St. Louis and
one of the researchers involved in the development of MAP. "The real challenge
is to choose a medication that's best suited to each particular attack. The
Migraine Attack Profile facilitates patient communication about their headaches
and subsequently simplifies the treatment decision."
Although many medications are available to treat migraines, finding the right
one isn't always easy.
"Each medication has advantages and disadvantages that need to be evaluated
based on the individual patient," says Smith. "For example, if the patient's
attacks tend to start slowly but progress throughout the day, a drug with longer-
lasting effects may be a more suitable option than one that begins to work faster
but stops working sooner."
For Angie, completing the profile made a big difference in her life. "Even
though I've had migraines for years, it wasn't until I started using MAP that I
realized how long the headaches lasted. My doctor noticed a recurring pattern
and determined that a long-lasting therapy would work best for me. Now I
finally have the relief I need."
According to Suzanne Simons, executive director of the NHF, tools such as
MAP play a crucial role in headache management. "Anytime patients can
actively partner with their healthcare providers, they improve their chances of
finding a successful treatment outcome," she says.
In addition to using MAP, the NHF offers the following migraine management
tips:
Seek expert help. Find out if your doctor has experience treating migraine, or
consider seeing a headache specialist or a neurologist.
Learn all you can about headaches. Take advantage of the free resources at the
NHF to help you better communicate with your healthcare provider.
Be open and honest. Tell your healthcare provider every detail of your
headaches, symptoms and how they impact your life.
Ask questions. Don't leave the office until you understand all your treatment
options so you and your doctor can agree on realistic treatment expectations.
Follow up regularly. Track your treatment progress with a headache calendar,
and be prepared to discuss it during your next visit.
Accept family support. Let family members pitch in with daily chores and
other responsibilities. Less stress may lead to fewer migraines.

Attack Profile, contact the National Headache Foundation at (888) NHF-5552

Don't forget to floss!


Your teeth are definitely
clean -- you brush them every
day. But do you floss? Floss-
ing daily is just as important
as brushing to prevent dental
decay and periodontal prob-
lems. Flossing helps clean be-
tween the teeth and under the
gumline, areas that brushing
alone can't reach.


There are many kinds of
dental floss, and one is no bet-
ter than another, so pick the
floss that works best for you.
There is waxed or unwaxed,
flavored or unflavored, and
regular or tape. Waxed floss
slides easily between the
teeth. Flavored floss leaves a
minty, fruity or other flavor in


your mouth. Tape floss is
thicker than regular floss,
making it popular among peo-
ple who have wide gaps be-
tween their teeth.
HOW TO FLOSS
Flossing won't be effective
unless you do it properly. Here
are some steps, courtesy of
floss.com:


1. Wrap 18 inches of dental
floss lightly around your mid-
dle fingers.
2. Firmly grasp the floss
with your index fingers.
3. Form a C shape, and slide
floss up and down the area be-
tween your tooth and gum
line.
4. Gently slide the floss in


between both sides of
your tooth. Repeat on all
teeth until finished. Don't
rush. or you will not reap
the benefits of flossing --
it should take two to
three minutes. For more
information on how to
floss, consult your den-
tist or hygienist.


These local businesses are here to take good care of you.

People dread the coming of
winter, not only because it
means beautiful back yards
will soon turn into barren
landscapes, but because to
stay warm, they'll have to
sacrifice comfort. Instead of
shorts, t-shirts and sandals,


it's cold outs

put all those layers on. They
protect you from what would
otherwise be bone-chilling
cold.
When it comes to the layer
of clothing closest to your
skin, not all long underwear
is created equal. Traditional
thermals make you sweat, es-
pecially if you've been exert-
ing yourself shoveling snow
or participating in sports ac-
tivities. The moisture is ab-
sorbed into the fabric and
stays there. The Cuddl Duds
company has the solution to
this problem with the intro-
duction of their newest prod-
uct, warm underwear made
of Comfortech, a new light-
weight stretch material made
of polyester and Spandex.
Comfortech, unlike chemi-
cally treated fabrics, pro-
vides temperature and mois-
ture management inherently.
"When you begin sweating
-- which you will definitely
do with all the extra layers on

mates will soon be bundling
up in layers before venturing

The typical.winter ensem-

items, and finally an exterior
or protection layer, your coat

warm," says Enid Katze, se-
nior vice president of mer-
chandising for Cuddl 'Duds.
She also points out that un-

cotton that can be thick and

Stop energy bills and home comfort from going through the roof


When winter sets in, home-
owners rush to close up their
homes -- the one thing they
think will keep them comfort-
able during an uncomfortable
season. Storm windows are
hammered in place, drafts are
sealed and the heating is
ranked up. What homeown-
ers don't realize is that this
can affect the ventilation in
your home and, as a result,
send your family right to the
doctor with sore throats, run-
ny noses and breathing prob-
lems.
But help is at hand. With
Americap standard's 3 Cs of
C ni mtolfr.- -t- can quickly
keep your energy costs and
your health in the comfort
zone all winter.


The 3 Cs of Comfort --
check, control and clean -- is
an easy way to remember the
critical steps needed to winter-
ize your home for your health
and your wallet. And by fol-
lowing these simple steps, you
can ensure optimum comfort
during the winter.
"Heating, ventilating and
air conditioning (HVAC) is
one of the most important
components of a home," ex-
plains Paul Trotter, vice presi-
dent of sales, American Stan-
dard. "But homeowners often
do not realize that HVAC is
the driving force in delivering

home comfort and clean aiii
Now, with the 3 Cs of Com-
fort, consumers have the in-
formation they need to pre-


pare their home and their fam-
ily for a comfortable, healthy
and money-saving winter."
Here is how to winterize
your home using the 3 Cs of
Comfort:
Check: Even;if you think
your HVAC unit is working
fine, it is important to sched-
ule proactive maintenance at
least twice a year. Typically, it
is a good idea to schedule an
appointment for an HVAC
professional to perform sys-
tem maintenance in the fall
and then again in the spring. If
you are shopping around for a
new HVAC unit, ask the in-
'staller to conduct a heat-loss
heat-gain calculation of your
home before making a pur-
chase. This will help ensure


your new air conditioning and
heating system is the proper
size for you and our home.
It is easy for winter winds to
creep inside your home and
for heated air to leak out, so
check for potential problem
areas. Your windows and
doors are prime suspects when
it comes to infiltration and
leakage. Check around every
frame for cracks, gaps and
poor-fitting fixtures to make
sure they are sealed properly.
If they are not, use caulking or
weatherstripping to seal the
cracks, gaps and poor-fitting
fixtures. You can pick up both
for just a feW dollars at any
hardware store.
Also make sure your home
is adequately insulated. This

Home comfort doesn't just come down to home furnishings. Most.;.
homeowners don't realize HVAC is a key factor in creating year-
round comfort for your family and there are some simple ways to
optimize your system before winter sets in.


will help keep the warm, com-
fortable air inside. American
Standard suggests the follow-
ing R-values, which represent
the thickness of insulation: R-
30 in the ceilings and R-13 in
the exterior walls.
Control: During the winter
months, when outdoor tem-
peratures drop, moisture in the
indoor air typically, escapes
through any crack or crevice
in the outside wall of your'
home, especially around win-
dows and doors. Moisture is
also exhausted outdoors
through bath and kitchen fans.
This makes the humidity level
of the indoor air increasingly
low. If this is a, problem in
your home, you may notice
static electric shocks and the
drying of nasal passages as
well as changes to your wood-
work, furniture and plants. Biiit
you can control this issue by
purchasing a whole-home hu-
midifier .\\th automatic con-
trol. .
Do you feel like. you are
constantly adjusting the tem-
perature of your home? Let
the Ohermostal do all of the
woik: for you. By program-
ming your thermostat, you
" ill be in control of your own
comfort. A lot oftoday's better
models can'be programmed to
run at different temperatures
throughout'th% day, depending
on your comn frt needs over a '
24-hour period. Most manu-
facturers recommend 70 de-
grees for cold winter climates.
Also, if you have ceiling fans
with reversible motors, the
overall comfort of your home
can be improved. When the
fan blades are reversed in the
winter, this pushes the com-
fortable, heated air down into
the room.
In the winter, the tempera-
ture in the home changes


rapidly because most furnaces,,,
heat the home with a single-
stage heating system, which' '
delivers a blast of warm air,
followed by an off cycle and.
then another full blast of warm';
air, causing very noticeable'
temperature swings. You can-.-
even out the temperature 1 4iti

stage heating system. The first
stage operates more than 8
percent of the time for continT
uous comfort and only switch-
es to the second stage when'
more heat is needed. Clean".
Believe it or not, the air inside'
your home can sometimes beCi
more polluted than what's out-c
side, causing potential probw
lems for your family's healtl4
Changing the air filter in your
.'
HVAC unit is one of the easi-, '
est -- and often most over-.
"looked -- steps you can take t
improve the air quality inside,
your home. It is a good rule of'
thumb to change the air filter.
every 30 days. To help save on
replacement filter costs, some
manufacturers, such as Ameri-
can Standard, have cleanable
filters that can be rinsed o
vacuumed. The company alsoct
helps manage air quality within
its Comfort-R technology2J
which is found in furnaces...
With this technology, fan
speeds are reduced, allowing;,-
more unwanted particles --i
dust, pollen, pet dander and&
the like -- to cling to the filter,
so cleaner air can flow into
your home. .

ments.: It will repel water
from snow, sleet or rain and
block wifd.
You should also take stepsi
to protect your head, face..
neck' and extremities from-.-
the elements. A hat of some- .
kind is critical because up to
60 percent of your body's"3
heat can escape from an un
covered head.. A scarf. o
fleece neck gaiter (like a col
lar) is also suggested; as are'.
insulated gloves or mitten
and light- or medium-weig
socks. Boots complete th
outfit.
Shopping for winter gea-
should be a breeze now that
you've gotten a refresher-
course. One last suggestion -
don't wait until your fa-
vorite style or size is sold.'
out! Shop early and be pre-'
pared.
You can find Cuddl Duds'
Comfortech warm underwear

partment stores across the
