has been received.
A check for $15,000 to
cover the cost of the election
has been accepted by the
clerk from Richmond En-
tertainment and deposited
in an escrow account. The
funding requirement is in
conjunction with the public
referendum concerning the
card room proposed for Jai
Alai fronton presently un-
der construction in Hamil-
ton County.
An 'order for election'
has been set with county)
Supervisor of Elections
Laura Dee,. The cost factor

termined at the completion
of the elecnon on lMarch 8.

ment will be made to Dees'
office from the escrow\ ac-

The ta\pa.er will not in-
cur any expense whatsoev-
er associated with a card
room referendum special
election. The entire cost will
be borne by Richmond En-

responsibility is a carbon
for procedure (Florida state
statute) of the initial special

gering for the Jai Alai facih-
ty in October of '03.
The March 8 ballot ques-
tion will call for a simple

lots are expected to be de-
livered next week and
thereafter will be available

tee ballots, to call and re-
quest same as soon as pos-
sible.

mailed to the 7,731 regis-
tered voter- in the county,

sponded. After concluding official business at the courthouse in Jasper last Friday Gov. Bush paid an unscheduled, sur-
prise visit to Central Hamilton Elementary. He was greeted at the door by sixth-grade teacher Leigh Ann Norris and stu-
dent Jonathan Banks, along with Title 1 Coordinator Vivian Scott, and the rest is history. Truly a memorable occasion
as the students presented the Governor with a card supporting 500 signatures, proclaiming "We want you! Governor

STORMING WASHINGTON: HCAODPC delegates (I-
r) Grace McDonald, Brenda Carter and Verna Home
attended the National Leadership Forum in Washing-
ton. DC. in January to present their concerns about
drug use in Hamilton County. (Photo Submitted)
HCAODPC attend National
Leadership Forum
The Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America met
for the National Leadership Forum XV in January at the
Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Rep-
resenting Hamilton County were retired educator Brenda
Carter, retired Public Health Nurse Verna Home, and
Hamilton County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention
Partnership Coalition Project Director Grace McDonald.
The delegates met with 2,400 participants from all areas
of the United States to discuss increasing alcohol and drug
use among pre-teens, teens and young adults. They also
met with aides of Senators and Representatives to present
the statistics for Hamilton County and plans for requested
dollar allocations.
Communities are demanding that law enforcement and
judges create a ZERO Tolerance nation. This change will
require the efforts of communities to be successful in
changing society's acceptance of teen age drinking and
other drug usage. Part of the Coalition's job is to mobilize
public and private partnerships to achieve major social ob-
jectives.
For more information or to join the Coalition, contact
Grace McDonald at 938-4911.

COMMENTARY


A Tallahassee visit warms Hamilton County

Governor and Lt. Governor temper the weather


Undeniably it was a wintry day
in Hamilton County last Friday -
cold and windy. In meteorological
terms, a real nor' easter. Temps
didn't rise above 50 throughout
the day.
But the weather prognosticators ,f
for the local area, didn't factor in a -
tempering "warm front" coming
in from Tallahassee a Jasper visit
by Governor Jeb Bush and Lt. Gov. BY LEONA]
Toni Jennings.
The pair came to Hamilton County in conjunction with
their on-going Citizens Hour concept implemented state
wide. You could have fooled the array of residents respond-
ing to the visit that chilly morning however. State wide pro-
gram? Instead it appeared to the local folks in attendance,
like a one-of-a-kind exclusive visit to a select community.
The Governor and Lt. Governor, with their accommodat-
ing demeanor warm and friendly, sincere and legitimate -
made everyone feel that they were, and the community was,
something special.
Citizens were lined-up in the early morning chill to sign-
up for an informal five minute chit-chat with either Gov.
Bush or Lt. Gov. Jennings. It was a healthy sign-up, a smooth
flow in and out of the meeting rooms and an overall well or-
ganized program. Certainly indicative of the advance prepa-
ration effort and communication between the governor's
staff members and county personnel charged with orches-
trating the visit.
The prevailing atmosphere throughout the visit was
warm and friendly. Jeb and Toni openly embraced the peo-
ple of the community. The people of the community openly
embraced Jeb and Toni.
There were many topics of discussion covered in the pri-
vate meetings with the Governor and Lt. Governor. Very
personal and sensitive matters, along with general topics,
educational interests, traffic concerns, and often a family that
simply wanted to reach out and make contact with the lead-
ers of our state.
I was able to sit in on several of the sessions that were with
the Governor. I observed no one leave the meetings feeling
disenfranchised. He wasn't making political connections as
he listened and responded, he was always making in my
opinion personal and lasting connections.
One concern in particular brought to his attention early on
and mentioned intermittently throughout his visit, was a

traffic safety concern on 129S at the
entrance of the new high school. I'd
venture to say, that concern will
bear fruition in the very near future.
My guess is, it will be due to Mr.
Bush's personal intervention with
the DOT.
When the Governor openly and
privately gave advice to youngsters
who queried him about the future,
education was always the focal
point of his answer. He is un-


abashed on education.
On the lighter side, unexpectedly and in true Art Linklet-
ter TV fashion, came the question, "What are you going to
do about global warming?" I suspect Jeb will pass that one
on to a particular family member in D.C. Also at the end of
the student Q&A session, from the back of the room and
hardly audible, came the youthful urging, "Come back Gov-
ernor!"
I think that youngster echoed the sentiments of the major-
ity of citizens in attendance at the courthouse in Jasper last
Friday, when the Governor paid a visit to Hamilton County.
I particularly related to a statement oft times repeated by
Jeb Bush throughout his visit, "Like so many others, I ini-
tially came to Florida by personal choice." That was most
satisfying to hear. And what is even more satisfying to note,
is that the present Governor of Florida who came to the
Sunshine State by personal choice also chose to lend some
sunshine on Hamilton County with a personal visit on a
cold, windy day in January.

No restrictions on

flu shots now


There is no longer a
shortage of flu vaccine
shots or restrictions on their
use. They are now available
at most area doctors' of-
fices. All restrictions re-
garding age that were in
place when the vaccine was
in short supply have been
lifted. Anyone who desires
to have one can now get
one.
The recent weather indi-
cates that winter is not com-
pletely over and neither is
flu season. Anyone who is
at risk or feels that they
should have the.vaccine is
eicbutkiged td g't 'it. The
"flu season" continues for
two more months so it
makes sense to get the shot
now that it is available. Pre-
venting the 'flu saves time
lost from work or school
and helps prevent others
from getting it.
Everyone should also
take all medicines that are
prescribed for them. Not
taking medicines pre-
scribed by a doctor can lead
to increased susceptibility


to the flu and colds, as well
as other, possible serious
complications. Help is
available for those who
cannot afford their medi-
cine.
Funded by a grant from
The Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida, the Hamil-
ton County Pharmacy As-
sistance Program can help
with the application
process for free or low cost
medicine. It is a local re-
source for residents to find
other sources for medi-
cines, from discount cards
for everyone, to free pro-
grams for those vho quali-
fy. The program has nu-
merous resources available
for all Hamilton County
residents. Program services
are completely free.
The program is located at
204 Northeast First Street in
the Sandlin building across
from the courthouse. The
entrance is on the side of
the building on First Av-
enue It is open daily from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m.,The tele-
phone number is 792-2143.

By Doug Hilliard, Pastor, Jasper Presbyterian K

Blessed are those who mourn


One of the greatest ser-
mons ever preached was the
Sermon on the Mount, be-
ginning with the Beatitudes:
The Beautiful Attitudes as
some have called them!
Isn't it awesome that Jesus
singled out such unlikely
groups of people for special
blessing, the poor in spirit,
those in mourning, the
meek, and the persecuted.
The world's values tell us it's
the wealthy, the spiritually
accomplished, the highly ed-
ucated, and the joyful that
have earned such rewards.
As I reflected on these
beatitudes I became cen-
tered on the second one,
"Blessed are those who
mourn, for they will be com-
forted." I thought about the
tragic losses this community
has faced in just the past
year. Death has come to sev-
eral families, and we have
lost some strong leaders. For
each of these there has been
great mourning: "Blessed
are those who mourn, for
they will be comforted."
There have been extended
family members and friends
who have died from our
next door neighbors to mili-
tary personnel fighting for
freedom from terrorism, and
for these too we have
mourned. Just recently thou-
sands have died tragic
deaths in tsunami activity in
Indonesia. "Blessed are
those who mourn, for they
will be comforted."
We mourn our losses, our
rejections, our disappoint-
ments, and even our person-
al failures. "Blessed are
those who mourn, for they
will be comforted."
Some people have the im-
pression that mourning is an
expression of weakness, that
it is unproductive, that we
should retreat from those is-
sues that are painful and
that cause us to mourn, but
Jesus calls us to mourn.
"Blessed are those who
mourn, for they will be com-
forted."
It is the Christian thing to


do. We are called to care for
one another, to care for
God's good creation, and
when we really care, we will
often find ourselves in
mourning. "Blessed are
those who mourn, for they
will be comforted."
Jesus also gave us the
command to love, and isn't
loving part of mourning?
The only way to avoid
mourning is to avoid loving,
they are inseparable one
from another. It is no sur-
prise then that Jesus would
say, "Blessed are those who
mourn." It's so much a part
of the command to love.
Those who mourn will be
comforted. The operative
word is comforted, not com-
fortable! The Greek word
translated as "comforted"
literally means to be called
to the side of someone who
gives comfort. "Blessed are
those who mourn, for they
will be called to the side of
God." When we allow our-
selves to mourn, to become
that vulnerable, to love that
deeply, we are brought ever
closer to God, right to his
side. God uses us, as a Chris-
tian community, to bear one
another's burdens, to love
one another so deeply that
we really mourn with one
another, that we really feel
one another's pain. And as
we comfort one another we
become the Body of Christ,
reaching out, drawing one
another closer to the side of
God. As we mourn, we are
privileged to participate
with God in comforting oth-
ers in pain around us.
I pray that you and I can
love enough to mourn.
Claim that special promise
of Christ, "Blessed are you
who mourn, for you will be
comforted, and you will be
drawn to the side of God."
There truly is Comfort in the
Mourning! That's great
Good News!
Worship this week in the
church of your choice.

Notes at

Greenwood

School








By Casi Ha
January was a busy
month for the students
and staff of Greenwood
School. On January 21, we
celebrated the 100th Day
of School! Everyone gath-
ered outside to hear me
read the book "The 100th
Day of School", and then
each student released a
green balloon to celebrate
the occasion. Inside each
balloon is a message ex-
plaining what the balloons
represent, and we are hop-
ing that whoever finds one
of our balloons will send
us a letter so that we can
track where our balloons
landed.
The Pre-K classes had a
very exciting January as
they participated in many
winter activities. To com-
plete their winter theme,
all three Pre-K classes en-
joyed a field trip to Wild
Adventures' Snow Days.
Everyone had fun playing
in the snow, sliding down
the Toboggan Run, ice-
skating, and attempting to
build snowmen!
The staff and students of
Greenwood School would
like to recognize and con-
gratulate our Teacher of
the Year and School-Relat-
ed Employee of the Year.
Mrs. Kristy James has
been voted our Teacher of
the Year. Mrs. James is the
Hamilton County School
Resource Teacher.
Our School-Related Em-
ployee of the Year is Mrs.
Suretta Bell. Mrs. Bell is a
paraprofessional at Green-
wood and drives the bus
for our Madison County
students. She has been on
staff at Greenwood for 13
years. We congratulate
these ladies and thank
them for their hard work
and' dedication to our stu-
dents.

benefits Florida

citizens and

Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation and
Workforce Florida, Inc.
urges Florida workers to
take advantage of the
Earned Income Tax Credit
(EITC), a refundable federal
income tax credit for low to
moderate income working
individuals and families.
The tax credit is a valuable
source of support for people
who work, but don't earn
high incomes. Taxpayers
who qualify and claim the
credit can pay less federal
tax, pay no tax or even get a
tax refund of up to $4,300.
The Earned Income Tax
Credit provides a substan-
tial incentive for low to
moderate income families to
participate in the workforce.
At the same time it imparts
to these families the dignity
of work and self-sufficiency.
There are far-reaching bene-
fits not only for the worker's
family, but for their commu-
nity as well, because these
refunds are used for family
essentials and the money is
spent locally.
In tax year 2003, a total of
1.5 million Florida taxpayers

filed for EITC refunds in the
total amount of $2.7 billion.
In a recent study of the eco-
nomic impacts of the EITC
refund, the Brookings Insti-
tute found that the spatial
distribution of EITC filers in
Florida was fairly evenly
dispersed with 21.6% from
large cities, 17.4% from large
suburbs, 16% from small
metros, and 22.1% from rur-
al areas. This distribution
shows that supporters of
large metros and rural areas
have a common interest in
promoting the EITC as a
critical economic tool for
their low to moderate in-
come working families.
Congress originally ap-
proved the tax credit legisla-
tion in 1975. The maximum
benefit then was $400 per
year and has grown to
$4,300 for tax year 2004. In-
come and family size deter-
mine the amount of the
EITC. When the EITC ex-
ceeds the amount of taxes
owed, it results in a tax re-
fund to those who claim and
qualify for the credit. To
qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements
and file a tax return. For
more information on claim
requirements for the EITC,
visit www.irs.gov/eitc or
call 1-800-TAX-1040.

Grouper: perfect

food back on


the store shelf


A southern seafood tradi-
tion and a staple of true
Florida cuisine has returned
to grocery stores and
seafood markets. Florida
grouper with its distinctive
flavor and pleasing texture
has been a preferred meal
choice for generations and
shows no signs of relin-
quishing its unofficial title
as "king of the southern wa-
ters."
For the past two years the
value of grouper to Florida's
economy has been approxi-
mately 23 million dollars
each year. It is a naturally
renewable and sustainable
resource that provides jobs
and stimulates the economy.
Population management
keeps grouper, and other
Florida species, from being
over-fished so consumers
can be certain they are en-
joying a sustainable re-
source. In November of


2004 Florida's Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission temporarily closed
grouper fishing when the an-
nual quota had been met. On
January 1, the fishery re-
opened and kicked off the
2005 grouper season.
Four ounces of uncooked
grouper has only 110 calo-
ries, two grams of fat none
of which are saturated and
only 55 grams of choles-
terol. Add the 23 grams of
protein plus calcium and
iron and grouper begins to
look like the perfect food.
The lean flaky meat can
be used in almost any
recipe. Because grouper
meat is so low.in fat, some
basting may be necessary
when grilling, broiling or
baking. Fresh grouper
should be stored in the cold-
est part of the refrigerator
and used within two days of
purchase.


Prescribed burning fitness standards ensure safety in resource management


Florida State Parks Direc-
tor Mike Bullock recently
completed the "Pack Test." a
two mile walk carrying a 25
pound weight, as part of a
new training standard for
Florida Park Service em-
ployees involved in pre-
scribed burning. The half


hour lest is the national stan-
dard for physical fitness es-
tablished by the National
Wildfire Coordinating
Group.
"This test helps to ensure
the safety of our Rangers
while they are administering
prescribed fire one of our


most effective resource man-
agement tools," said Bullock.
"The safety of park employ-
ees is our top priority and this
test is another tool to prepare
park rangers for the physical
demands of prescribed burn-
ing."
The Florida Park Service is


developing physical fitness
standards for the more than
350 employees involved in
the prescribed fire program.
The "Pack Test" \vill become
a statewide requirement for
all State Park Rangers begin-
ning sometime next year.
Working in partnership with


the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
Florida Division of Forestry.
local city and county envi-
ronmental resources divi-
sions and local fire depart-
ments, the Park Service
burned more than 56.000
acres last year.


Prescribed burning mimics
natural fire cycles to restore
natural communities, reduce
undergrowth that accumu-
lates over time and decrease
the potential for \\ildfire.
Burned areas experience an
increase in native wildflow-
ers. birds and other wildlife.

Norris Notes


By Lillian Norris


Can you believe one month
of 2005 has already past? And
February will soon be over, as
it is a short month. Maybe it is
because my life seems to be so
busy, suddenly it is time for an-
other column to be due. I spent
some time last week going
through some old issues of the
JASPER NEWS and it was in-
teresting to see how times have
changed, and people have
changed; "a picture is worth a
thousand words" seems so ap-
propriate. There was a picture
of Governor Jeb Bush taken
when he was secretary of the
Department of Commerce, and
he spoke at our annual Cham-
ber of Commerce dinner in
1988. I thought he looked so
young, and I realized how
much younger I looked, which
is to be expected; after all that
was almost 17 years ago. Do
you think you have changed in
17 years? Believe me, we all
have probably changed in more
ways than one.
This brought a thought to
mind that in some papers, I
think we did it for a while a few
years ago, papers ran facts that
had been printed five years ago,
10 years ago, etc.; Valdosta
Daily Times runs something
similar to this now, maybe we
can do this.
We are fortunate to have the
bound copies of the JASPER
NEWS here. I think this has
been mentioned before, that all
the bound copies of the other
LOP papers were destroyed in
the fire that occurred several
years ago.
In trying to locate Doug
Whitaker about an insurance
claim, we learned that he and
Trish, Rodney and Kathy
Strickland were spending the
weekend in Port St. Joe; they
had rented a cabin there and
planned to gg out in the boat
but ;the weather-id not allow
that. Kathy's parents have a
cabin there and they visited
with them, Al and Barbara
Mills, and the ladies went shop-


ping; we aren't sure if the men
went along on this part of the
trip.
The community was sad-
dened last week by the death of
Henry VIckers; he had been in
bad health for a number of
years and a resident of Suwan-
nee Valley Nursing Center. He
was preceded in death by his
wife of a number of years,
Louise Shepherd VIckers.
After the Vickers service we
were able to speak with Terry
Shepherd and Foster Shepherd
Jr. and his wife, Gamett (Hick-
man) Shepherd of Jacksonville,
FL. Terry and Foster Jr. are the
sons of the late Foster Shepherd'
Sr. and Evelyn Mitchell Shep-
herd. The Shepherd men are
both in business in Jacksonville
and will be remembered, as
well as their parents, by their
many friends in Jasper. Both
spent their elementary and high
schools in Hamilton County
prior to graduating from FSU.
Their Shepherd grandfather
was a former pastor of First
United Methodist Church,
Jasper, and grandmother Shep-
herd returned here to live in her
later years. Evelyn's parents
were the late Jesse and Nina
Mitchell, lifelong and well-
loved members of Hamilton
County and Jasper Presbyterian
Church. Terry's wife is the for-
mer Becky Pittman, daughter
of Dorothy Pittman and the late
Wayne Pittman. Gamett Shep-
herd was the daughter of the
late Jim and Erline Hickman.
Good news is that Dorothy
(well-known and loved as Dot)
Pittman is back in Jasper, living
in her mobile home next door
to her son, Coach Michael, his
wife Cindy and granddaughter
Beth. Dot was such a faithful
member of First United
Methodist Church, especially
working so well with the \ outh
of the church. She: was..also-
known for her cooking; her
huge cakes were a special treat.
Welcome home, Dot.
Craig and Carrie (Marvin)


Schuppe announce the arrival
of a son, Alexander Robert
Schuppe, in Chicago IL, weigh-
ing seven pounds, 11 ounces;
he joined brother Joshua, 6 and
sister Megan, 4. Maternal
grandparents are Phyllis Mar-
vin, Jasper, and the late Dr.
Robert Marvin; paternal grand-
parents are Donald and Elaine
Schuppe, Chicago.
Jimmy and Dot DeVane vis-
ited their daughter and her fam-
ily, DeeDee, Donny and Annie
Phillips in Jacksonville last
weekend and attended church
with the Phillips family at
Riverside Primitive Baptist
Church, Jacksonville. They
were joined at the Church by
Jimmy's sister, Ada DeVane
Rodgers, a special former
Hamilton County resident, who
is now living in Jacksonville to
be near her children, and the
families had a good visit to-
gether.
Each day as we see weather
reports from around the country
we can be so thankful that we
live in Jasper. In spite of a few
inconveniences we have expe-
rienced, we live in a place
where we can be thankful for
each day for whatever the
weather brings. If you have
ever lived anywhere else, you
know that the weather is more
consistent than most places and
a "saying" comes to my mind
that was said of some place else
(I do not think it was about our
area but could apply) if you do
like the weather just wait five
minutes and it will change; we
do experience favorable weath-
er most of the time.
Governor Jeb Bush and Lt.
Governor Toni Jennings were
given a "warm" welcome Fri-
day morning; although it was a
little brisk, it was a sincere wel-
come. Governor Bush was even
in his shirtsleeves when he ap-
peared at Central Hamilton El-
ementary School, and he was
so receptive to the greetings of
the school children.
Lost: my red quilted purse is
missing and I would like to ask
your assistance in. helping me
locate the pure. TJ.ere. wasn't
much money; the papers, etc.,
are difficult to get replaced, my
billfold was in it, and the purse
itself was a gift to me from my


grandchildren at Christmas and
was special to me. If I could get
back the purse, important pa-
pers, etc, it would mean so
much to me. It could be re-
turned to me, or give me a call,
or call Dr. Norris' office or drop
by his office. I would appreci-
ate your help, no questions
would be asked. Thank you for
your consideration.
As many of you know read-
ing is very important to me, and
I read a variety of types of liter-
ature, some light and some
much deeper. Recently I came
across a paperback book by
Jessica Fletcher (of the televi-
sion show MURDER SHE
WROTE (which was a favorite
of mine several years ago and
still when I can come across a
re-run) and found these words
"people who don't spend their
working days just thinking
have trouble understanding
how tiring it can be. I always
know when a day at my word
processor has been successful.
If I don't come away from it
drained, it hasn't been. Some-
times after finishing this col-
umn, that is the way. But, do
not take my computer away
from me.
The loss of Bettye Sears will
be .felt by her family and
friends, Bettye had so many
health problems but we always
knew she was here, and we will
miss her, our sympathy and
prayers to her family and
friends.
When contacting Joyce
Croft, she said they are home
after spending a lot of time at
the hospital and in a nursing
home for rehabilitation in Val-
dosta. They did get a good re-
port, in that they did not find
any complications other than
gout, which he had already
been troubled with. He received
good care and was glad to hear
that there are no other serious
complications; they are just
glad to be back in Jasper.
As February is now here, I
understand it is National Heart
month. Do not forget Valen-
tine's Day on Feb, 14 and. by.
now we will know it is too Jate,
to check but maybe the ground-
hog did whatever he was sup-
posed to do, and hopefully we
will not be seeing six weeks of
bad weather.
Have a good weekend and
keep in touch.
Until next week,
Lillian Norris

the city of Jacksonville is

Quote for the week:
"You've got to know when to
hold em. Know when to fold
em. Know when to walk
away, and know when to run.
You never count your money
when you're sitting' at the
table. There'll be time enough
to count it, when the dealing's
done." From the "Gambler"
as sung by Kenny Rogers
Have a good week Hamil-
ton County ..... I love you.

them about blends such as
"br", "gr", "gl", "sh", "cl",
"st", and "sl". These are just a
few. Continue practicing "be-
ginning sounds" and words
that begin with the same
sound. Ms. Johnson has been
very ill for the past few days.
We are praying for her com-
plete recovery, and we send or
heartiest "GET WELL" wish-
es to her. Mrs. Ruby Williams
and Mrs. Mary A. Shake-
speare have been substituting
for Mrs. Johnson, and we
thank them very much. Re-
member parents, our upcom-
ing Stanford 10 Assessment is
VERY IMPORTANT, and we
all want to do our best. This
means having good atten-
dance at school each and
every day. Thank you for your
support.
Mrs. Mickler's first grade
has been working on long
vowels and compound words
in reading this week. We have
enjoyed talking.about differ-
ent kinds of weather and see-
ing photos on the computer of
the snow that has been falling
in the northern states, Our
Weekly Reader this week was
all about snowflakes. Did you
know that snowflakes have
eight sides? We are proud to
announce our student of the
week, Christian Whitmore.
Congratulations Christian!!!!!
Mrs. Schmid's second
grade read the story "Birthday
Joy" this week. Students
learned the different ways in
which birthdays are celeb-at-
ed around the world. Ir r-
many, a single candle is
burned. In Israel, the child
wears a beautiful crown of
flowers. In iMath, studits
skip counted and identified
fractional parts of a whole.
They continue to subtract


two-digit numbers.
In Mrs. Adams' third grade
class, "One Grain of Rice" by
Demi has been the story
we've been reading this week.
This is a mathematical story
with which we have had lots
of fun. It tells of a young girl
who asks for one grain of rice
the first day, then doubles that
amount for thirty days. We
had lots of fun using our cal-
culators to find out the
amounts each day. We were
shocked at how much she
would receive at the end of
thirty days. We've also used
calculators to explore times
tables. We really need to be
learning our times tables.
In Mrs. Howell's fourth
grade, we wish Jerome Wal-
lace a Happy Birthday on Jan-
uary 29. Congratulations to all
participants for a job "well
done" in Thursday's school
spelling bee: Levi Alford,
Jerome Wallace, Brandon
Patrick, and John Bryant en-
joyed this experience. In read-
ing, fourth graders finished
reading the true story of a
brave Korean mother who dis-
guised her daughter as a boy,
in order for her to go to school
and get an education! What
improvements in our educa-
tional system we could have if
all families were that dedicat-
ed to the education of our
children. In Florida History,
we are studying Florida's role
in the American Revolution.
Don't forget the upcoming
FCAT Writes Assessment on
February 8 and 9
Fifth grade students in Mr.
Louis Daniels' class are read-
ing a story about a Memory
Box. The story deals with a
boy named Zach finding out
his grandfather has
Alzheimer's and will never be
the same again. In Social
Studies, we are studying the
War Between the States, the
Civil War. In fifth grade, Tyler
Allen, placed third in the
school wide spelling bee. He
will represent our school in
the county wide spelling bee
next Friday, February 4, at 10
a.m., Central Haiilton Ele-
mentary!! Congratulations
Tyler!!!!!!!
In Mr. Corbett's sixth


grade, this has been a good
week. We had three sixth
graders participate in the
school spelling bee, held on
Thursday, January 27. Tucker
Patrick, the reigning school
and county spelling champ,
placed first, and Jared Altmix,
placed second. This was a
very fine, long, and hard
fought spelling bee, and Tuck-
er and Jared, spelled and
spelled and spelled for close
to forty-five minutes. Con-
gratulations to Tucker and
Jared; they will represent our
school in the county spelling
bee.
Students in Miss Scaff's
and Ms. Thomas' ESE class
have been working very hard
in all subjects especially get-
ting ready for the FCAT!!!!!
Mrs. Scaff says she feels most
welcomed and very much a
part of the South Hamilton
family!!!! It is always a joy to
see smiling faces ready to
help in any way possible. We
are glad to have Miss Scaff
join our staff here.
During the month of Janu-
ary, Ms. Broadnax shared ex-
periences and used activities
to help students understand
and learn more about the life


of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. King devoted his life to a
non-violent crusade against
segregation and discrimina-
tion. He believed in freedom
and equal rights for all people.
Dr. King, an eloquent speaker,
riveted a nation in his "I Have
a Dream" speech from the
steps of the Lincoln Memorial
in 1964.
Mrs. Broadnax challenged
S.H.E. students to write about
a dream they have for improv-
ing the lives of children in the
world. Most students focused
their writings on making the
world more safe and secure
for children (free of alcohol,
drugs and violence).
Dr. King's dreams for a bet-
ter America live on in the
lives of our school students.
Each year, Americans cele-
brate Dr. King's Birthday,
now a national holiday, the
third Monday of January.
From the School Reading
Coach, Mrs. Joan Radford:
Well, parents and students,
it will soon be time to conduct'
DIBELS testing again for stu-
dents in grades K-3. This will
take place between February 7
and February 18. As your
child's Reading Coach, I am


looking forward to this time. I
have seen such progress on
other assessments and antici-
pate that there will be positive
results on these upcoming
tests. Be sure your child gets a
healthy breakfast (full of pro-
tein not sugar), and that
he/she gets lots of rest during
this time. Thank you, parents,
for your cooperation.
We were very happy to
have a visit at South from our
School Superintendent, Mr.
Harry Pennington, Tuesday,
January 25. Mr. Pennington's
visits mean a great deal to us
at South.

Square at Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State

Selby's expressive style

ed in paintings exhibiting
both realism and the sub-
ject's personality. She
likens her portraiture to the
softness of John Singer
Sargent, with inspiration
taken from the Dutch Mas-
ters and the strong Ameri-
can vision of Andrew
Wyeth.
Selby is a skilled oil and


watercolor artist who also
takes as her subjects the
wildlife of north central
Florida. She paints animals
and exotic plants and has
excelled in hand-painted
china.with a botanical mo-
tif. Original pieces are
commissioned by buyers
interested in custom colors
and designs, but retaining
Selby's unique style.
A resident of High
Springs, Selby studied with
Charles Holder from the
University of Florida. She
is a member of the Nation-
al Museum of Women in
the Arts, the only museum
dedicated exclusively to
celebrating the artistic

God's Call

In memory of Pastor Leland Strickland
Father, Let me thank You,
for the man You sent my way.
He told me of salvation,
and that You'd hear me if I prayed.
He told me of Your righteousness,
and promises I could hold.
If I asked Jesus into my heart,
I could walk the street of purest gold.
You know Lord; there were MANY
who came to know Your Son.
All because of the witness,
this faithful, man had done.
He often searched for strangers
who knew not Jesus Christ.
And sharing his heart's calling,
there was a great change in their lives.
That special man is with You now;
I remember how he'd shout GLORY.
He preached the truths of Jesus,
always telling the same "old precious story."
That You, Lord, would take a moment
to save a sinner who lived so wrong.
My only regret, dear Heavenly Father,
I never got to say so long.
We all loved you
Thank You, Lord

Cedar Key United Methodist Church to celebrate 150th anniversary


CEDAR KEY. FL -- The Cedar
Key United Methodist Church \will
mark the 150th Anniversary of its
founding at its annual homecoming,
Sunday, March 13, at the church. Rev.
Charles Weaver, assistant to the bish-
op, Florida Annual Conference, will
deliver the sermon.
Founded in 1855 on the island of At-
sena Otie, where the original city of
Cedar Key was located, the first
church building w\as built in 1857-
1858. according to a book written by


an early Methodist circuit rider. Rev.
Jeremiah Rast. His mission included
all of Levy County. and parts of Mari-
on and Alachua Counties. There were
about 27 preaching stops on the cir-
cuit. So weekly sen ices were not pos-
sible.
Later, when the city was moved back
one island to Way Key. due to hurri-
cane damage, the present church was
constructed in 1889. The church was
heavily damaged in the 1896 tidal
\a\e and was rebuilt. It was again


damaged in the hurricane of 1950
when it was moved off its foundation,
the parsonage destroyed, and most of
the church records were lost. Over 60
pastors have ministered to the congre-
gation since its founding. Its current
pastor is .ames Howes, formerly of
Live Oak.
In recent years the church has ex-
panded its fellowship hall, purchased
the adjacent building for Sunday
School space, a community food
pantry and a community teen center. In


2001 the church installed the I th and
last of a series of stained glass w\in-
doxvs designed b. local high school
students and handcrafted by local
artist Don Joyce. owner of Ha en Isle
Gift & Glass. Each window depicts a
biblical scene on top and a Cedar Key
scene in the bottom panel. The congre-
gation is also currently midway
through its "Growing Together With
God" capital campaign.
The public is invited to attend the
celebration.

J ;S1-5 -PU BL- !5 ED AIMO N G A LL N AT 10NS NA


By Pam
It seems hard to believe a whole
month of the year has passed Now, we
are in the month of February, the time
when most people seem to think about
Valentine's Day. I guess most people's
first thought when asked about Valen-
tine's Day would be about love, hearts,
flowers, candy, lots of red, pink, white
and purple decorations, gifts, cards, bal-
loons, heart shaped cakes and cookies,
sweethearts, and Valentine parties!
I enjoy that part of Valentine's Day
myself! It is always a blessing to share
love with someone else through gifts and
cards, and to let them know you really
care! It is also fun to receive gifts and
cards and realize someone cares about
you.
Yes, Valentine's Day is a special day to
show love to others; it is also the perfect
opportunity for us, as Christians, to share
the most important love of all, the love
of God!
Think for a moment about this ques-
tion: how many people do you know
who don't really know God? They may
know of Him, but they don't really know
Him and His love in a personal way, liv-
ing in a day-to-day relationship with
Him. Could you find a way to show them
God's love? The Bible says, "And we
have known and believed the love that
God hath to us. God is love; and he that
dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and
God in him" 1 John 4:16. When we real-
ly know God's loye, we will want to
spend time getting to know Him better. It
seems even a lot of Christians don't ful-
ly understand the vastness of God's love
for them.
If we take a look around at the beauty
of God's creations, how then can we ever
doubt God's love? There is beauty every-
where: in the trees, the flowers, a new-
born calf, a little puppy, a kitten, the
stars, the sky, the mountains, the oceans,
rivers and lakes, a bird in the flight, the
wonder of a newborn baby's cry. Don't
look at the negative, look at the positive,
and all of the beauty God has put around
us every day!
One very starry night not too long ago,
I sat outside in the field and looked up at
the amazing handiwork of our loving
Creator, God. God made all those stars
for us! In the natural, I was very cold, as
it was one of those nights when it was
going to freeze, but as I talked to the fa-
ther, God, I felt such warmth inside me
it made me know just how much He re-
ally loves me. Try it sometime, go out-
side all alone at night and look up into
the heavens, talk to your father, God, and


Campbell
He will meet you there. Then, the warm,
sweet love He has for you will wrap all
around you. He longs to hear from you,
and to answer you. God is everywhere,
all the time. His love is so great He tells
us He watches us and protects us any-
where we may go; God proves this in the
Bible in 2 Chronicles 16:9: "For the eyes
of the Lord run to and fro throughout the
whole earth." God shows His great love
to us in other ways, by keeping our bod-
ies working, our lights on in our house,
keeping our family free from danger,
providing us with food and clothes, and
answering our prayers. God knows
everything we need before we even
know we need it! In Matthew 6:8 it says,
"Your father knows what you need be-
fore you ask Him." Remember, God is a
lot bigger than most people think! He is
the creator of the whole Universe; He
doesn't need anything, everything is
God's.
The one thing our loving God desires
from us is for us to believe! You see,
God's love is so great He gave the ulti-
mate sacrifice to show His love for all
mankind! He gave His only son, Jesus, to
die a cruel and agonizing death on the
cross for all of our sins. We can read'
about it in John 3:16: "For God so loved
the world that He gave His only begot-
ten son, that whoever believes in Him
will not perish but have eternal life."
God's love is so great he was willing to
give His own son to die for us because
He knew we needed a perfect sacrifice in
order to ever live forever in heaven with
Him. Now, that is really an awesome,
kind of love! So you see, God already
owns the whole world, the universe,
everything, there is nothing He needs
from us, but for us to give Him our heart,
to ask Him to save our souls, to let Him
wrap us up in His precious and lasting
love, He wants our hearts full of praise!
Yes, Valentine's Day will come on
Feb. 14; whether you celebrate it or not
is your choice. In the long run, what we
do to celebrate this man-made holiday
doesn't really matter, but what we do
with the love of God will matter for all
eternity. So, enjoy Valentine's Day, and
take this opportunity to let family,
friends, and neighbors know you care by
giving them a gift, a card, balloons or
flowers or making them a cake or heart
shaped cookies. But as you do these
things, remember to show them your
love, and most of all show them the love
of God. Above all, remember the great-
est love there has ever been or ever will
be is the love of God.


Hey Kids!
Color this heart, cut
it out, sign your name
and give it to someone
you love to remind
them of God's
love for them!
I guess you know Valentine's Day is com-
ing Feb. 14! I know most kids are probably
already looking for Valentines to share with
their friends and family, and asking for their
favorite kind of Valentine's candy. Maybe
you are looking forward to a Valentine party
or expecting to get some really cool present!
Valentine's Day can be a lot of fun! I know
I' am looking forward to a Valentine Party,
and for the chance to give my family and
friends valentines to let them know I care
about them! I don't know what each of you
do for Valentine's Day or if you celebrate it
at all, but I do know Valentine's Day is a day
people think a lot about love!
I am sure you love somebody, \ whether it is
your mom, dad, maybe a grandma or grand-
pa, or other family and friends, and I am sure
they love you, but do you know about the
one who loves you and all of your family
and friends the most of all?
I want to share with you about the best
love of all, God's love! God loves you so
very much He was willing
to give His only son, Jesus,
to die a painful death on the
cross, just so you can find
Him and ask Him to save
your soul, so you can go to
heaven some day and live
forever with Him! The Bible
tells us in John 3:16: "For N[
God so loved the world that Business (
whoever believes in the Son Folders Fly
PayrollChe
of God will not die, but will Copies Full
have eternal life." Now, that typesetting -B
di
is really an awesome kind of
Texada & Connor
love! Live Oak, Florida
The same God who makes Remember, whe
the flowers, the trees, the an- Printing Compai


imals, the whole world, the whole universe,
the One who created everything and every-
body gave his only Son to show us His love
is the most amazing love of all!
He does not ask for us to give Him any-
thing but our heart, all He wants to do is help
us, take care of us, show us His love and He
would like us to talk to Him, to give Him a
heart full of praise! No one in the whole
world loves you like God does. Remember,
God is everywhere, so He is always with
you to help you, to hold you, to love you, al-
ways.
Yes, Valentine's Day will come on Feb.
14, but how you celebrate it is not what real-
ly matters. What you do %% ith God's love is
the thing that will always matter!
Enjoy Valentine's Day with your family
and friends, and use this day when everyone
is thinking about love as a chance to share
God's love with them. Always remember the
best love of all isGod's Love!
Happy Valentine's Day, Kids!

A BIT EDGY
If you are nearsighted with a strong minus
correction, you may be concerned about the
thick edges of conventional lenses. The
Thickness also lends bulk to the lens, which,
in turn, makes them heavier. In addition,
by Sherry A. conventional lenses with strong corrections
Cole, L.D.O. for nearsightedness make the eyes appear
Licensed Optician smaller. If, these factors are problematic, you
may want to ask about aspheric lenses. These
lenses were developed with a smart design of
constantly changing curves. Not only do they provide better
corrected vision (especially when looking to one side or the
other), but they also have thinner edges, are lighter in weight than
conventional lenses, and do not make the eyes look smaller.
Aspheric lenses are thin and light, which means that people who
are nearsighted don't need to worry about wearing thick lenses
that make their eyes look small. Call COLE OPTICS at (386)
754-6616 to schedule an eye exam. Keeping pace with eyewear
advances, we can fill prescriptions with aspheric lenses. Do you
want to change your.eyewear. We carry wire-thin titanium frames,
stainless steel frames, colored laminated plastic frames, and metal
frames. Brand names include, Nike, Calvin Klein and Donna
Karen. Visit us at 621 SW Baya Dr., Suite 101.
P.S. The thinnest possible edges for a strong nearsighted lenses
are produced when aspheric lenses are made of "high-index"
material.

ARE YOU SEEING THINGS?
So-called "floaters" are small semi-
transparent or cloudy specks or particles
within the jelly-like fluid (vitreous) that fills
the eye. The appear as specks of various
shapes and sizes, thread-like strands, or
cobwebs. These spots are caused by small
flecks of protein or other matter that is
trapped inside the eyes during their formation '"
before birth. They may also result from the by Reaves C.
deterioration of the vitreous fluid due to Cole, O.D.
aging, as well as from certain eye diseases Board Certified
Optometric
and injuries. Fortunately, most floaters are Physician
not harmful and rarely hamper vision. To be
sure that they are not symptomatic of more serious problems, a
comprehensive eye exam is recommended if you notice sudden
changes or an increase in floaters.
Although floaters are not harmful to vision, they could be a
symptom of an underlying problem. Remember, you have only
one pair of eyes. Protect your eyes and enjoy good vision
throughout your life by having routine eye health examinations
that include thorough examination of the internal and external
parts of'the eyes and screening for glaucoma and cataracts. Call
LAKE CITY EYE PHYSICIANS at (386) 754-6616 to schedule
an exam, or visit us at 621 SW Baya Dr., Suite 101.
PS. Floaters often seem to dart away as you try to look at them


directly.

Breast Cancer NewsT Early detection means less toxic treatment
t xvoe1ove r -- A O 1 -_O ne


Women who have breast
cancer detected by
mammography are about half
as likely to have toxic
treatments as those who have
cancer detected by physical
examination-regardless of their
age, a new study shows.
Overall, patients whose
cancer was detected at physical
examination were three times


more likely to be treated with
chemotherapy than those who
had their cancer detected by
screening mammography, said
the lead author of the study,
Richard J. Barth, Jr., MD,
Chief of the Division of
Surgical Oncology at
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical
Center.
Chemotherapy is commonly


recommended for patients with
tumors larger than a centimeter
in diameter or with cancer that
has spread into the lymph
nodes, Dr. Barth explained.
Cancers detected by
mammography were half as
large as those detected by
physical exam. In addition,
only 16 percent of those
patients whose tumors were


detected by mammography had
cancer spread to the lymph
nodes compared with 42
percent of those who had their
breast cancer detected on
physical examination, he said.
Overall. patients who had
their breast cancer detected on
physical examination were
more than twice as likely to be
treated with mastectomy rather


than breast conservation, he
added.
While there continues to be
debate on whether screening
mammography increases
survival of women ages 40 to
49 and 70 and older, there is no
doubt that mammography
detects cancer earlier, Dr. Barth
said. The study provides strong
supporting evidence that


women over 4U should oe
screened with mammography,
he said in the January 2005
issue of the "American Journal
of Roentgenology." The
journal is published by the
American Roentgen Ray
Society, the oldest radiology
society in the U.S.
