ELAYED HONOR: Warren "Tom" Morgan of Jasper was awarded a

Then Private First Class Morgan, US Army hit a land mine while do-
ing hisjob driving a five-ton dump truck and was wounded with injuries

Purple Heart award is

a high military honor


The Purple Heart was
established by General
George Washington at
Newburgh, New York, on
Aug. 7, 1782, during the
Revolutionary War. It was
reestablished by the Presi-
dent of the United States
per War Department Gen-
eral Orders in 1932.
The Purple Heart is
awarded in the name of
the President of the Unit-
ed States to any member
of an Armed Force or any
civilian national of the
United States who, while
serving under competent
authority in any capacity
with one of the U.S.
Armed Services after


April 5, 1917, has been
wounded or killed, or
who has died or may
hereafter die after being
wounded in any action
against an enemy of the
United States.
After March 28, 1973,
the Purple Heart is
awarded for injuries or
death caused by an inter-
national terrorist attack
against the United States
or as a result of military
operations while serving
outside the territory of the
United States as part of a
peacekeeping force.
While the Purple Heart
is an individual decora-
tion, it differs from all


other decorations in that
an individual is not "rec-
ommended" for the deco-
ration; rather he or she is
entitled to it upon meet-
ing specific criteria.
A Purple Heart is au-
thorized for the first
wound suffered under
qualifying conditions and
for each subsequent
award an Oak Leaf Clus-
ter will be awarded to be
worn on the medal or rib-
bon. Not more than one
award will be made for
more than one wound or
injury received at the
same instant or from the
same missile, force, explo-
sion, or agent.


FEMA assistance available;

registration deadline February 28


Community residents
whose property was dam-
aged as a result of last
fall's hurricanes must ap-
ply to FEMA by Feb. 28.
Residents whose claims
have been denied or who
received assistance inade-
quate to meet repair needs
must submit an appeal by
Feb. 28. Residents who
registered with FEMA and
received a Small Business
Administration (SBA) ap-
plication must submit the
application to receive as-
sistance, whether the resi-
dent is eligible for a grant
or for a loan.
Representatives of Unit-
ed Way, American Red


Cross, Catholic Charities,
Three Rivers Legal Ser-
vices, Florida Crown and
Suwannee Valley 4Cs re-
ceived application train-
ing from FEMA Voluntary
Agency Liaison (VAL)
Joan Lewin to assist those
who still need to complete
their SBA applications.
Residents eligible for as-
sistance must complete
and submit the SBA appli-
cation. Those who are de-
nied a loan are eligible to
be considered for the
FEMA Other Needs Assis-
tance (ONA), which is a
grant the recipient does
not have to pay back. In
the Suwannee Valley only


17% of those who applied
for FEMA assistance have
returned their SBA appli-
cations.
Receipt of FEMA assis-
tance will not have an ef-
fect on residents' Social
Security or disability ben-
efits. Those with insur-
ance may also apply.
If a residents' SBA pa-
perwork is outdated or
misplaced, call the SBA at
1-800-359-2227 to receive a
replacement application.
Applicants then have 60
days to return the applica-
tion. If assistance is need-
ed to complete the appli-
cation call the United Way
office at 386-752-5604.

anyone, regardless of age
and AARP membership is

Anyone who has their

of dollars by forgoing the
"instant refund" (loan) of


the commercial preparers
and waiting seven to
eleven days for their re-
fund to be direct deposited
in their bank. "Paper" tax
return preparation and an-
swers to tax questions will
be available.
The office will be open
this Saturday, Feb. 26,

I'm grateful for Hamilton
County, a place where
benches aren't chained
down and the water is still
good. Where I'm from, leave
early. It's total gridlock
from 6-9:30; thereafter it's
'just gridlock so bring some
patience and a doctor for the
smash and grabs. Fuel costs
are higher so is crime, al-
ways prepay. Here, I choose
my own parking space, take
two when no one's looking.
Back home land sells by the
foot. Here I bought land by


the acre.
Insurance, especially car
insurance is cheaper in our
county. Now I have more
than one car, jobs are hard to
find in Hamilton, but much
harder where I'm from I
don't know Spanish. Every-
thing looks the same where I
lived, but not here.
A friend actually called to
tell me she had one of the
best times ever when we
visited the Old Jail and the
historic Telford. I can even
talk to my commissioners

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Doug Hilliard Jasper Presbyterian

Discovering faith and purpose
Read John 3:1-17


In this gospel story from
John we meet a man just be-
ginning a journey of faith.
Nicodemus began his jour-
ney with a shallow, superfi-
cial faith, based on weighing
the evidence. His belief is
based initially on his life in
the flesh, his personal expe-
riences. Yet Nicodemus was
aware that he needed some-
thing more, so he began his
journey toward discovering
faith and purpose. It was in
his encounter with Jesus
that Nicodemus discovered
the spiritual side of life, dis-
covered that he needed to
turn from his dull existence,
a life of ignoring the renew-
ing power of God, and begin
his quest for faith and pur-
pose.


Something in the voice of
Jesus struck a chord in
Nicodemus, and he began to
discover his purpose in life.
As we look further into the
gospel story, we discover
that Nicodemus remained
faithful. Before Christ's cru-
cifixion, Nicodemus defend-
ed Jesus at trial, and it was
he who came to help pre-
pare Jesus' body for burial.
His faith grew, deepened,
and strengthened along the
way toward discovering his
faith and purpose.
Once we begin our own
journey toward discovering
faith and purpose, and com-
mit to taking that first step,
there is no turning back, for
the dull life we left will nev-
er be the same again. It is


one of God's paradoxes that
the more willing we are to
leave the familiar and secure
and place our trust and faith
in God, the nearer we come
to the security of our eternal
home and to fulfilling the
purpose for which God cre-
ated us.
Perhaps you have been
singing too tightly to the fa-
miliar, too timid to begin the
journey toward discovering
faith and purpose. I chal-
lenge you to risk, stepping
out of the darkness and into
the light like Nicodemus,
and begin the journey, or
perhaps recommit to the
journey you once began. Be-
gin the journey today. Eter-
nal life awaits us at our jour-
ney's end.
If God is speaking to your
heart, I invite you to begin
your journey toward dis-
covering faith and purpose
today, at this moment! Com-
mit your life to the only one
who is worthy of our wor-
ship and praise!
Worship this week in the
church of your choice.


DEAR FRIENDS:


My family and I sincerely

appreciate and thank you for your

thoughtful and kind expressions of

love, friendship & sympathy

In loving memory of

Mother Viola Atwood


:~


better

known

as

"Bama"


Mother Viola Atwood
Mother Viola Atwood was a loving mother of five
children: two deceased, Marion Atwood and Oliver At-
wood; three surviving, Sister Betty Johnson of Jasper,
Estell McCloud of Gainesville, and Willie Atwood of
Lake City. She was a grandmother and a great-grand-
mother. She was a loyal and devoted member of the
Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church, where she was
the oldest member. George Francis was her pastor.
To be absent from the body is to be present with the
Lord. To live a long life as "Bama" did, she had to do
something pleasing in God's sight.
Servant of God, well done.
Thank You
The family wishes to thank everyone for their kind
acts during the passing of their loved one.
May God bless you all.

Tax tips for Florida families


As families statewide tear
open their W-2 forms this tax
season, many may not be
aware of the tax savings
made available by recent
changes in the federal tax
code. Because many families
cannot afford the services of
private tax advisors, Florida's
Child Care Resource and Re-
ferral (CCR&R) Network is
providing tax tips to ensure
families take advantage of the
new laws.
Filing taxes can be an in-
timidating process and with
tax laws changing every year,
families may not be aware of
the current tax credits avail-
able. For working families
with children, the federal
Earned Income Tax Credit
alone could be worth as
much as $4,300. Families
should check to see if they are
eligible for any of these tax
credits or refunds.
If a family spent money on
work related child or depen-
dent care expenses last year,
they may be able to lower
their taxes or increase their
refund on their return if they
paid for child care or depen-
dent care so that they could
work or look for work; and
the care was for a child that is
claimed as a dependent
(younger than age 13), a dis-
abled individual that is a de-
pendent, or a disabled
spouse.
In 2004 the federal Earned
Income Credit increased. In
general, the lower their in-
come and the larger their
family, the larger their credit
will be. Even if they don't
owe income taxes, they could
get their credit as a substan-
tial tax refund.
They may be eligible for a
federal Child Tax Credit of as
much as $1,000 per child if
they have a child (grandchild,
great-grandchild, etc.) or
stepchild who was younger
than age 17 by Dec. 31, 2004,
who is a U.S. citizen or resi-
dent alien, and who they are
claiming as a dependent on
their federal income tax re-
turn; and they had income of
$94,000 or less, if single, or
$129,000 or less, together
with their spouse, if married.
Even if they owe little or
nothing in federal income
taxes, they may be able to get
a refund of some or all the
their federal Child Tax Credit
if they earned at least $10,750
in 2004. There are special
rules for siblings, nieces and
nephews, and married,
adopted, and foster children.
The CCR&R Network is a
statewide service that assists


families in finding informa-
tion about child care, locating
child care and early educa-
tion services, as well as other
valuable information such as
saving money on taxes. Fam-


ilies should check to see if
they are eligible for any of
these tax credits or refunds.

Pet immunizations

available in March


March is always round-up
immunization time for pets in
Hamilton County. This year is
especially important for immu-
nizing pets due to the increased
incidence of human and ani-
mal contact with rabid animals.
Everyone should make a
special effort to immunize their
pets and control their activity
toward minimizing an en-
counter with rabies and insur-
ing resistance to rabies if bitten
by a rabid animal.
The Health Department and
local communities of Hamilton
County have scheduled rabies
immunization clinics for pets


a


on the following days: the clin-
ic will be held at Dr. Huston's
veterinary clinic in Jasper from
9 a.m. until 12 p.m., and 1 p.m.
until 3 p.m. on Saturday,
March 5.
On Saturday March 12, Dr.
Huston will be at the Jennings
Fire Station from 9 a.m. until 12
noon and then at the White
Springs veterinary clinic from 1
p.m. until 3 p.m.
The pet immunizations clin-
ics have been established as a
convenience to pet owners in
Hamilton County. There will
be a reduced price of $6 per pet
for rabies shots at each clinic.

Mrs. Edwards and Mrs. Er-
ixton's PK class welcomes
home Mrs. Martia Wooten.
She is La'Tia Wooten's mom.
She has been in Korea serving
in the United States Army for
a long time. She visited our
class. She is home for a while.
So, our PK Class and all of
South Hamilton "says" "Wel-
come Home, Mrs. Wooten."
Get well soon, Josh!!!!! Josh
Meyers is a member of Mrs.
Linda Erixton's family. He
lives in Jacksonville. A few
days ago, Josh's truck was hit
by a train. Josh is recovering in
the hospital. We want him to
get well soon!!!!
Reaching Out is part of our
Pre-K Socialization Skills. We
invite our parents to share
their expert experiences with
us.
In Kindergarten, Ms. Runy-
on and Ms. Johnson are con-
tinuing practice for our Stan-
ford 10 test. We are working
on letter sounds and matching
lower case with upper case let-
ters. We read a story about
Miss Alice and her special
shoes. We found out about
people taking care of younger
children, and we also talked
about introducing our friends
to our parents and other peo-
ple. We are continuing to learn
about our birthdays and using
guidelines to help us write cor-
rectly. We are learning the
concepts "greater than" and
"less than" in math and trying
to learn about place value. We
need to work on continuing
writing our numbers in the
correct order. We are also
learning to write sentences us-
ing capital letters. 'The stu-
dents also have time to work
on Leap Pad to help reinforce
skills we have done in our


class.
Mrs. Mickler's first grade
class would like to welcome
Christopher Lucas to our class*
this week. It is a pleasure hav-
ing Christopher join us. Dur-
ing this week, we have been
discussing good dental habits
we need to know and should
be using. February is Dental
Health Month, and it is very
important for children to
know the correct way to keep
their teeth healthy and strong.
Parents, it is very important
for you to take your child to
the dentist every six months to
have their teeth cleaned and
checked by a professional.
Keeping baby teeth healthy
will help grow stronger per-
manent teeth. If permanent
teeth are neglected and lost,
they won't grow back. Please
encourage your child to brush,
floss, and eat healthy foods
everyday.
In Mrs. Schmid's second
grade class, everyone enjoyed
the Valentine's Day party. Stu-
dents exchanged Valentines.
We had enough refreshments
for two afternoons. Parents,
thank you for providing the
cupcakes, brownies, chips,
and drinks. This week, the
class welcomed a new student,
April Ratliff. April transferred
from Suwannee County
schools. Students are busy
preparing for the Stanford 10
test!!!!!
Students in Mrs. Adams'
third grade enjoyed Mr. Hicks
and Mr. Allen Tyree's visit on
Friday. We discussed Earth
Day, environmental issues
and planting a tree. We appre-
ciate everything that Mr.
Hicks and Mr. Tyree do to
help us become better citizens
of our community and Earth.
We've been reading lots of
good books, taking lots of tests
on Accelerated Reader, and
some students are reaching
some high numbers. We are
also very excited about all the
new books in the library.
Thank you very much, Ms.
Broadnax, for all your hard
work.
Mrs. Howell's fourth grade
class and Mr. Daniels' fifth
grade class enjoyed a trip to


the Olustee Festival in Lake
City on Friday, Feb. 18. Stu-
dents learned a lot about Civil
War History and saw some
wonderful demonstrations.
Thank you to Mrs. Broadnax
for driving us on the trip.
Many thanks to Stephen Fos-
ter CSO for funding this trip.
Mr. Corbett's sixth grade
has enjoyed reading a story
about cowboys and cattle dri-
ves. Everyone also enjoyed
our study of Africa. This week
we learned about the slave
trade and how it affected
Africa and the United States.
Happy President's Day week-
end and enjoy the long week-
end.
Ms. Scaff and Ms. Thomas'
ESE class would like to wel-
come April Ratliff to our class.
She is a new student at South
H-iii.II.... She is in the second
grade. April is the sister of
Nick Lucas. Welcome,
April!!!!! We continue to pre-
pare for the FCAT!
It will soon be here. We are
doing our best to "skin the
cat."
News from Reading Coach -
Hello again from your friendly
neighborhood reading coach!!
Well, DIBELS testing is com-
pleted for K-3 students. Scor-
ing and recording has not
been completed, but it ap-
pears, from observation, that
the teachers here at South
Hamilton, have, once again,
brought their students
through with flying colors. We
have excellent teachers here at
South Hamilton, and the stu-
dents have worked hard to
learn the necessary materials
and information. Most of the
children showed considerable
growth and improvement.
Give your child a pat on the
back and tell him/her you
love them.
Larry and Libby Carver pro-
vided all the students at South
Hamilton with Valentine's
Day treats. Thank you, Larry
and Libby, we appreciate you
so very much!!!!!!!

Norris Notes


By Lillian Norris


At the final writing of this
column, it is President's Day,
and we have seen and heard
much about our former presi-
dents as well as our present
President. We have heard
them praised and criticized,
much of it has been remem-
bered. The first president I re-
ally remember much was
President Franklin D. Roo-
sevelt, and his "Fireside Chat"
on the radio, and World War
II, so many have come and
gone since that time, I guess
when he ran was the first time
of voting for me, I can't re-
member how old one had to
be to vote then. I do remember
that when I tried to get a social
security card in 1945 I was
told that I was not old enough
(back then you had to be 18
and I lacked a couple of
weeks). My, how times have
changed, now you can't leave
the hospital until your parents
apply for a card for you.
Back to the presidents, this
brought to mind a crossword
puzzle clue from last week
that asked for the 21st presi-
dent of the United States, as
usual I looked in the World
Almanac and there was not a
president's name about that
time whose letters would fit in
the squares. Thanks to Janice
at the Library, and they were
open on President's Day, she
found that Chester Arthur
was the 21st President, he was
not named in the list in the Al-
manac because he filled the
unexpired term of James A.
Garfield (who died in office)
and the list in the Almanac
was for Popular and Electoral
Vote for President, and he was
not elected. So much for a his-
tory lesson for this week. Any-
how, hope you had an enjoy-
able President's Day.
Betty Sue McMillan and
granddaughter, Callie Adams,
attended a reunion of Betty
Sue's mother's family, the
Browning family, in Berrien
County, GA, on Saturday and
got to visit with many family
members and friends. Callie's
parents, Becky and Jake
Adams, attended the Nascar
Busch Races on Saturday.


Jimmy and Dorothy De-
Vane joined the Madison
County Farm Bureau for an
annual tour last week. They
toured the Charleston, SC,
area sites including a tour of
the USS Yorktown in port.
Dan Buchanan was in charge
of the tour. One visit that was
interesting was to a peach tree
farm of thousands of acres,
where the farm does testing
for the protection of food pro-
cessing to assure that certain
foods are protected from cont-
amination. They had a busy
couple of days, enjoyed the
trip but were tired and ready
to get back home. I am sure
they will take another tour
next year, it sounds like it was
fun as well as educational.
The Youth Group, with
much assistance from the
adults and the Fellowship
Committee of the First Presby-
terian Church, Jasper, enter-
tained the adults at a steak
supper Sunday evening, with
steak, baked potatoes, salad
and a full table of desserts. It
was a belated Valentine din-
ner, and was a fun evening.
Did you see the picture
page in the Valdosta paper
Sunday? Two lovely ladies
who are former residents of
Jasper, and who we still daim
as Jasper folks, made the pa-
per. "Mother and Daughter,
Miriam Bullard speaks with
her daughter, Candy Thomas,
the director of the Sylvan
Learning Center, at the Val-
dosta Heart and Stroke Gala
Saturday night." It was a very
good picture and we are
pleased to learn of Candy's
position.
Another sadness in our
area, the death and funeral of
Col. C.B. Harrison, who was a
well-known and loved resi-
dent of Hamilton County. 1 re-
member talking with him sev-
eral years ago when I inter-
viewed a former member of
each of the armed forces for
Veterans Day, it was a very in-
teresting visit, he was most
gracious in talking with me.
Our sympathy to his family.
A number of years ago sev-
eral ladies from Jasper and


As more Americans
strive to live healthier
lifestyles, they are learning
and paying attention to a
lot of numbers. From blood
pressure to cholesterol lev-
els, people are taking notice
of the importance the
"numbers game" plays in
their health. This year, the
American Cancer Society
and Weight Watchers are
encouraging the public to
learn one more crucial
health number their body
mass index (BMI).
BMI is a calculation using
one's height and weight.
Knowing one's BMI helps
determine if one's weight
falls within a healthy range.
The higher one's weight,
the higher one's BMI, and
the greater one's risk for
developing many serious
health-related problems, in-
cluding cancer.
On March 2, for the third
consecutive year, the ACS,
along with founding spon-
sor Weight Watchers, Inter-
national, Inc., will join
forces to educate the nation
about BMI and the connec-
tion with cancer during the

ed that about one-third of
all cancer deaths that occur
each year in the United
States can be prevented
through a combination of
healthier eating habits, reg-
ular physical activity and
weight control.
The ACS Great American
Weigh In was established
in 2003 as a nationwide
public awareness cam-
paign. The campaign was
aimed at educating Ameri-
cans about the important
role that eating well, being

Jennings started driving to the
Holiday Inn in Jennings just to
get breakfast on Saturday
mornings, inviting friends to
go with them, this went on for
a while, later the ladies start-
ing going to Hardee's in
Jasper after they opened there,
and they later moved to H&F
in Jasper. This has become a
tradition, the ladies have a de-
votional, visit and have break-
fast. Only a very few of the
original members are still able
to take part. It is a special time,
ladies from different churches
gathering for fellowship. It
has been a special time for me
as I get to visit with people
who do not go to our church
and I do not get to see them of-
ten enough. Mrs. Waters
serves breakfast, with her as-
sistants, and we enjoy the
company.
One morning when the
group was meeting at Hard-
ee's several years ago, a lady
who was having breakfast
there, watched the group and
as she left, she stopped by the
table, leaving a paper and
handing it to the ladies. We
would like to print this and
share it with you.
THE LADIES
I saw these ten fine ladies
So young in spirit and love
And each one
encouraged the other
With blessings from above.
I noticed how they spoke
With manners
and with charm
And though I did
not know them
I wished them blessings
and no harm.
They sat in Hardee's diner
Discussing all the
weeks events
How they went to chapel
Or how time
came and went.
Oh, they were lovely ladies
Their hair all neatly done
Their dresses impeccable;
it seemed
The morning would
not be done
For they had time
for chatter
And they did not
make haste.
They enjoyed what
life has to offer
Good friends and
coffee's taste.
Have a good week.

In addition to the Great
American Weigh In on
March 2, the ACS and

What wonderful spring-
like weather we enjoyed
over the President's Day
Weekend. After a "rain out"
last year, the Olustee Festi-
val in Lake City was blessed
with "Chamber of Com-
merce" weather for their
27th annual event and what
an event it was!!!! There
were more people in Lake
City Saturday than you
could "stir with a stick",
and I am told the same was
true on Friday. I know it
was Friday afternoon, be-
cause I went downtown and
watched the "mock" battle
for the Monitor and Merri-
mack on Lake Desoto from
the deck of the Elk's Club
on Hillsboro Street, and I
enjoyed it very much.
Lake City-Columbia
County certainly goes all
out for this event, and I am
sure there are careful plan-
ning meetings held
throughout the year to pro-
duce such a first rate event,
from school children
singing to dancing groups,
to wonderful regional
foods, arts and crafts, his-
toric costumes, a parade, a
children's area, and the bat-
tle re-enactment itself.
There is something for
everyone. This year's festi-
val was a huge success.
While at the Festival, I
saw so many "home folks" -
Randy and Sue Heavrin
(nee Sue Bryner), Lake City.
Sue is a cousin to me on the
"Joyner" side of the house
and a cousin to Virginia
Daniel on the "McDonald"
side. She is very active in
the Blue-Gray Army and
has been for years. It is al-
ways a joy visiting with
Sue. She partially grew up
here in White Springs, in
the house, now owned by
Janet Moses, that Ray and
Cindy Waters lived in for
years on Wesson Avenue. I
also had a chance to visit
Ronnie and Tracy Brannon.
Ronnie is the new Tax Col-
lector for Columbia County
and Tracy also partially be-
longs to us here in White
Springs. Tracy's maternal
grandmother is Gussie Reg-
ister Cheshire, now a resi-
dent of the Suwannee Val-
ley Nursing Home, Jasper,
but who, for many years,
was a resident of White
Springs, employed by the
Stephen Foster Center, and
a member of First Baptist
Church, White Springs. It is
always so good to see Ron-
nie and Tracy.


Speaking of the Olustee
Festival, I was happy to
speak with Donald For-
gione, who is the Division
Two Director, for the Flori-
da Department of
Parks and Recreation, out
of Gainesville. Donald
stayed in one of the nice
cabins at Stephen Foster for
part of the weekend and en-
joyed the Olustee Festival,
as the Park Director at
Stephen Foster is also in
charge of Olustee Battle-
field. The Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State
Park will have a new park
manager, effective March 1.
Barbara Roberts, longtime
park manager and park ser-
vice employee, will assume
the responsibilities of park
manager at Stephen Foster.
Welcome, Barbara. She will
be replacing Valinda Subic
who will be leaving to as-
sume job responsibilities in
the Orlando area.
Happy Belated Birthday
wishes to to Mr. Leon Scip-
pio, White Springs. Mr.
Scippio was honored by his
family members and friends
with a gala birthday cele-
bration at New Jerusalem
Baptist Church on Sunday,
Feb. 20. Mr. Scippio, a life-
long White Springs resi-
dent, is 75 years young. We
wish him many, many more
Happy Birthdays!!!!!!! My
association with the Scippio
family goes back as long as I
can remember. My late
great uncle and aunt, Chess
and Essie Sweat, owned the
Lowe Place, right in front of
the Scippio's farm, and I
would -ride, from time to
time, with Aunt Essie, over
to the Lowe Place to "see
about" her cows; that was
over forty years ago. Fre-
quently, we would stop and
visit with the Scippios and,
if we were feeding the cows,
a group of us would ride in
the back of Aunt Essie's
truck and have a wonderful
time laughing and talking.
Good memories--
Ben Register's mother,
Penny Register, requested
that I express the sincere ap-
preciation of the family for
the many prayers, messages
of concern, cards, and other
expressions that have meant
so much to. them during
Ben's long and difficult hos-
pital stay. Ben is still a pa-
tient at Shand's Gainesville,
and he has come a long,
long way. Please continue
to keep him and the entire
family in your prayers.

Happy Belated Birthday

Jasper. We wish Miss Bur-
kett many, many more Hap-

Don't forget to mark your
calendars for Saturday,
March 19, when White
Springs will celebrate with
its Wild Azalea Festival. I
believe, this will be the fifth
annual Wild Azalea Festi-
val, and I hope we will have
a big crowd and lots of nice
music, food, and fun. I also
hope the weather will coop-
erate as beautifully for us,
as it did for the Olustee Fes-
tival in Lake City. Come
down and enjoy the day at
White Springs for the Wild
Azalea Festival. For more
information regarding the
Wild Azalea Festival, call
397-4461, at the Nature and
Heritage Tourism Center.
Everyone in White
Springs is very excited
about the opening of our
new Dollar General Store. It
Sis a nice large store, and it is
beautifully landscaped.
This store will be a nice ad-
dition to our town.
I always enjoy my visits
with Melissa and Bob Thon,
and I have enjoyed my vis-
its with them, since they
moved to town several
years ago and purchased
my Grandma Bullard's old
house on Mill Street. Bob
and Melissa own and oper-
ate Taglione's, located next
to the Community Center
(old Woman's Club), on US
41. They serve up some
wonderful food, pizza,
subs, homemade calzone,
and some of the most won-
derful homemade desserts
you've ever eaten, also old
fashioned dip ice cream. Go
by, and share, a ,yisit. with
Bob and Melissa and, while
there, enjoy some tasty
treats, you'll be glad you
did.

lowing in prayer: Ben Regis-

Join us on Saturday, Feb.
26, at 6 p.m. for our annual
PTO beauty pageant. This
year's theme is "Winter
Nights." The cost at the door
is $3. Little Miss NHE (grades
K-second), Junior Miss NHE
(grades third-fourth) and Miss
NHE (grades fifth-sixth) will
be crowned. The PTO works
very hard to make this a well-
planned and well-attended
event, showcasing our lovely
young ladies.
Prior to Valentine's Day,
media specialist Ms. Zant, and
several of her library classes
took a virtual field trip (by
way of the internet) to the
Hershey Chocolate Factory in
Hershey, PA. They viewed the
process of making chocolate
candy, beginning with the
gathering of the bean from
trees, to the end product of
machines wrapping the can-
dy. An especially interesting
fact is that 80 million chocolate
kisses are produced daily!

Ernest Hairstyling of


Ernest was raised in Wash-
ington, D.C. He began his ca-
reer in his father's salon. His
father, a naval veteran of
World War I, and his mother
are both deceased and buried
in Arlington National Ceme-
tery.
After stints at the famous
Bruno Brothers of Toronto,
Canada and Robert Fiance of
New York, N.Y., Ernest
opened his first salon in the
most prestigious address
Washington, D.C., on the up-
per Connecticut Avenue, NW.
The salon was later pur-
chased by the well known
cosmetic firm of Mary Chess,
Inc. of New York, N.Y. His
next salon opened in north
Palm Beach. Here his
wealthy clientele


yachtswomen, while sailing
the Atlantic, would telephone
ahead for appointments upon
arriving at the dock. Other sa-
lons have included Miami,
Ft. Lauderdale, and Brevard
County, including Cocoa
Beach, Satellite Beach, Indi-
alantic and Melbourne. He
owned and operated a chain
of some eight salons in Bre-
vard County. He sold his last
salon in February 2003 after
many years of happy and suc-
cessful operation.
In 2004, Ernest moved to
Jasper in Hamilton County.
His life-long dream was be-
ginning to unfold. Remem-
bering as a young man how
he, his mother and father
loved Hamilton County. On
their winter vacations, they

spending time in Jasper and
White Springs. They loved
North Florida's natural beau-
ty and local culture along the
Suwannee River.
Ernest, as was his father, is
also a naval veteran of World
War II. He has two sons, both
career firemen. His older son
Greg is assistant fire chief of
Melbourne. His younger son
Jeff is with the Cocoa Beach
Fire Department. They both
have aspirations of moving to
Hamilton County in the fu-
ture.
Ernest, being a senior citi-
zen, feels that the aging of
America is the force behind
the growth of salons in Amer-
ica. He also has a better feel-
ing of what seniors really
want in their day-to-day liv-
ing, including their hair-
styles. With this thought in
mind, he invented a haircut
known as the "Swiss Carved
Cut." This cut gives great

Ernest expresses his grati-
tude to the late Charles Re-
hberg and his widow Jeanne
Rehberg Morgan, two of the
most dedicated people to the
advancement of the hair in-
dustry. The people of North
Florida were indeed fortunate
to have had the Rehberg

dedicated to the advancement
of young hairdressers and lo-
cated in Lake City.

basics for


new parents
There are many lessons
you'll need to learn in order to
care for your newborn. From
diapering to feeding to sleep
positions, there's much to
know about taking care of a
small human being. It's likely
your research and education
will begin long before your lit-
tle wonder is born.
Most new parents under-
stand that this early education
should include lessons on car-
seat safety. You will likely be
driving home from the hospital
with your newborn, making a
car seat a necessity right from
the initial days of his life. In
fact, most hospitals have strict
rules that a baby can only be
released if an infant car seat is
present to transport him.
Besides having a car seat,
you also have to know how to
use it. It's not as easy to use as
you may think. According to
the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHT-
SA), a new survey found that
nearly 73 percent of child re-
straints are misused. Because
the car seat is a vital safety tool
for your child, here is some in-
formation on the types avail-
able, what age they should be
used, and how the seats should
be positioned in the car.
TYPES OF CAR SEATS
Car seats come in three basic
types, with which you'll be-
come quite familiar with after
browsing through the aisles of
a baby-products store.
1. Infant seat/carriers --
These seats are a combination
of car seat and infant carrier.
They typically hold infants
who weigh up to 20 pounds.
What makes them convenient
is that they're used in conjunc-
tion with a car seat base that
remains in the car. You simply
snap the carrier into the base
when traveling, and then un-

Car seat


Continued From Page 1C

snap it to take the baby in it
outside. The carrier can also
work in conjunction with a
stroller. All those components
make it a "travel system."
Since you don't have to wake
up your child to move him
from place to place, these
types of seats are quite popu-
lar.
2. Convertible car seats --
These seats let you use the
same product from when your
baby is born through when he
is a toddler, weighing in at 40
pounds. They may feature re-
movable inserts that effective-
ly make the seat smaller to fit
an infant. So this car seat is in-
stalled once, and stays put. Al-
though it doesn't offer the
portable convenience of an in-
fant carrier, you won't be re-
quired to purchase new seats
as your child grows.
3. Booster seats -- These
seats transition with your
youngster through early child-
hood. They can be used until a
child is 8 years of age, and
when traditional seat belts
don't adequately secure your
child.


.REAR OR FRONT
..' FACING?
Depending upon the age of
your child, you'll need to
know where to position his car
seat for maximum safety.
Children up to 12 months:
Most experts agree that a child
should be positioned in the
center of the backseat in a
rear-facing position through
12 months. At a young age, a
baby's neck is fragile and un-
able to support the weight of
his head. A rear-facing seat al-
lows the seat to recline at a
45-degree angle, properly
supporting your child's neck.
Even as he grows and neck
strength increases, it is still a
good idea to keep the baby
rear facing, because a car ride
is full of bumps, swerves and
jerks that could damage your
child's sensitive neck. Consult
with your pediatrician to de-
termine when it's the best time
for your child to move to a
forward-facing seat.
There are many products
that make using rear-facing
seats easier. Most include
handy mirrors that can be
placed in the back of the car
so you can see your baby's


face and keep a watchful eye
on him while you are driving.
Children 1 to 4 years old:
As your child grows, he'll be
able to move on to a forward-
facing seat. The harness
straps/slots should be placed
at or above a child's shoulders.
However, still keep it posi-
tioned in the center of the
backseat for safety.
* Children 4 and up: Chil-
dren of this age should still
ride in the back of the car, but
it is not essential for them to
be centrally located. Booster
seats should be used with both
the lap and shoulder seat belts
securely fastened to keep your
child safely contained in them.
IMPORTANT
SAFETY TIPS
If they're properly installed
and used, car seats can do
wonders to keep your little
one safe and secure.
Remember to follow all
instructions when installing
your car seats. Most are at-


tached with seat belts or with
a LATCH system (LATCH
stands for Lower Anchors
and Tethers for Children), It
is a federally mandated Sys-
tem that aims to standardize
and simplify the installation
of child restraints without us-
ing the vehicle's seat belt sys-
tem. Cars manufactured from
September 2002 o'i. are
equipped with special anchor
points where the car seat can
attach.
Make sure that your child
isn't overly bundled beneath
car seat straps. If you can
pinch the edges of a strap to-
gether between your fingers,
the straps are too loose.
Never place a car seat in
front of an active air bag.
Many emergency-service
personnel such as firemen
and police officers are trained
in proper car-seat installation.
If you have any questions on
installation, consult with
them or your pediatrician.

Breast Cancer --

Early detection is the best prevention
Breast cancer has been a widespread disease for years. Its cause is unknown, and it knows no race or
age boundaries for attacking mostly women. The numbers are startling. According to
thebreastcancersite.com, a Web site that helps fund free mammograms for underprivileged women,
182,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (one every three minutes) and 43,300 women will die
(one every 12 minutes) of breast cancer this year. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimates that about
one in eight women in the United States
(approximately 13.3 percent) will develop breast
.- cancer during her lifetime.


. WHAT IS BREAST CANCER?
Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast
cells that may form a mass of extra tissue called a
tumor. Tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or
malignant (cancerous). The most common type of
breast cancer begins in the lining of the ducts -- the
tube-like part of the breast that milk passes through to
reach the nipple -- called ductal carcinoma. When it
spreads outside the ducts, it is called invasive breast
cancer (most breast cancers are invasive). Metastatic
- breast cancer is cancer that has spread from the site
of the initial cancer to other parts of the body.


RISK FACTORS
Certain factors can increase a woman's risk of
getting breast cancer, although 70 percent of women
with breast cancer have no known risk factors,
according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Educaling yourself These risk factors include heredity, early puberty, late
about tr -.s ca ncer childbearing, obesity and lifestyle factors such as
Sanl crealin an heavy alcohol consumption and smoking. Studies
.- i early deleciion plan, from the NCI have shown that alcohol consumption
: wa:rih Includes can cause a 40 to 70 percent increased risk of breast
.. gvingriq yourself a cancer with two drinks daily.
r.',per reasi However, the biggest risk factor of all is age. Most
'.ell-e-amr can breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50,
h-lp save yoir life. and women over 60 are at the highest risk, according
to breastcancer.org, a nonprofit organization for
breast cancer education. In addition, a woman's risk
for developing breast cancer increases if her mother, sister, daughter or two or more other close relatives,
such as cousins, have a history of.breast cancer, especially at a young age. Yet 85 percent of women who
develop breast cancer have no known family history of the disease.
SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER
The scariest part about breast cancer is that you can have it and not even know it. Early breast cancer
usually does not cause pain and there may even be no symptoms at all. However, as the cancer grows, it
can cause any of the following changes: a lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area;
a change in the size or shape of the breast; nipple discharge or tenderness; inverted nipples; ridges or
pitting of re breast (skin looks similar to an orange peel); and the way the skin of the breast, areola (area
surround the ripple) or nipple looks or feels (red, scaly, warm or swollen).
EARLY DETECTION
Studies show that regular breast self-exams, combined with an annual exam by a doctor, improve the
chances of detecting cancer early, which is the key to more treatment options and a greater chance of
survival.
One way women can take an active part in the early detection of breast cancer, according to
thebreastcancersite.com, is by following an early detection plan which means having:
-- breast examinations by your doctor every three years from ages 20 to 39 and every year thereafter
-- monthly breast self-examinations beginning at age 20 to look for any changes in your breasts
-- a baseline mammogram (the first one) by the age of 40
-- a mammogram every one to two years for women ages 40 to 49, depending on previous mammogram
findings
-- and a mammogram every year for women over age 50
Keeping a record of your self-exams and mammograms and marking your calendar with reminders will
help you follow your early detection plan.
PROPER BREAST SELF-EXAM
Get in the habit of doing a breast self-examination once a month to familiarize yourself with how your
breasts normally look and feel. Examine yourself several days after your period ends, when your breasts are
least likely to be swollen and tender. If you are no longer having periods, choose a day that's easy to
remember, such as the first or last day of the month.
Step 1 -- In the shower with fingers flat, move gently over every part of each breast. Use your right hand to


examine your left breast, and left hand for right breast.
Check for a lump, hard knot or thickening. Carefully
observe any changes in your breasts.
Step 2 -- In front of a mirror, put your arms at your
sides and inspect your breasts. Raise your arms high
overhead and look for any changes in the contour of
each breast, a swelling, a dimpling of skin or changes
in the nipple. Then rest your palms on your hips and
press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Note that few
women's left and right breasts match exactly.
Step 3 -- Lying down, place a pillow under your right
shoulder, with right arm behind your head. With
fingers of the left hand flat, press right breast gently in
small circular motions, moving vertically or in a
circular pattern, covering the entire breast. Use light,
medium and firm pressure. Squeeze nipple and check
for discharge and lumps. Repeat these steps for your
left breast.
Don't panic if you think you feel a lump. Most
women have some lumps or lumpy areas in their
breasts all the time, and eight out of 10 breast lumps
that are removed are benign. However, if you notice
any changes that last over a full month's cycle or
seem to get worse or more obvious over time, it's best
to bring them to the attention of your doctor.

Make healthy eating a pregnancy priority


Once you find out you are
pregnant, there are many
changes that you must make
to your lifestyle. It is impor-
tant to make the care of
your growing baby a priori-
ty -- this small person is re-
lying on you as his lifeline.
This includes stopping the
consumption of harmful
substances, such as alcohol,
cigarettes and drugs (pre-
scription, over-the-counter
or illegal) during the dura-
tion of your pregnancy
term. It also means nourish-
ing your baby with healthy
foods, full of the vitamins
and nutrients he needs to
develop properly.
Healthy eating may seem
like a no-brainer to many
moms-to-be, but sometimes
it isn't as easy as it seems.
When contending with rag-
ing hormones, a waning ap-
petite or crazy cravings,
making sure you are eating
enough of the right foods
may not be high on your list
of priorities. But it should
be.
DIET ROADBLOCKS
Sure, you know you're
supposed eat your vegeta-
bles and adhere to a healthy
diet, but you can barely get
down dry crackers and wa-
ter, right? Don't worry, even
though your baby is grow-
ing quickly and requires a
variety of nourishment dur-
ing your pregnancy, some-
times its impossible to fol-
low a strict pregnancy diet.
Many factors affect what
and how you eat in the
weeks to come. Rest as-
sured that with the help of
prenatal vitamins and the
fact that often these symp-
toms come and go quickly,
it is possible to take in
enough healthy foods to
feed your growing wonder.
The following are some
healthy diet obstacles you
may face and how to over-


come them:
Morning sickness: Many
women experience morning
sickness during their preg-
nancy. Better termed "all-
day sickness," this feeling
of queasiness or vomiting
can occur any time of the
day or night, and usually
persists through the first
trimester of your pregnancy.
Morning sickness can defi-
nitely put a stop to your
best-laid plans of a well-
rounded diet. Even if you
are able to eat and enjoy
foods, they just may not
stay down very long!
Food aversions: Maybe
you loved a meal of chicken
parmigiana before you were
pregnaVnt, but now the
thought of the Italian de-
light has you running for the
bathroom. Pregnancy hor-
mones do strange things to a
woman, including affecting
her appetite and her choices
in foods. The foods you
once loved may no longer
seem appealing and vice
versa. If certain healthy
foods repulse you, look for
other tolerable options.
Food cravings: You've
heard of women eating
pickles and ice cream while
pregnant, right? No matter
how strange this food com-
bination may seem, crav-
ings are quite common dur-
ing pregnancy, but may not
always be this extreme. You
may feel a certain affinity to
a food and you need to eat it
over and over. Some experts
believe a woman craves the
foods her body needs most,
like citrus fruits, which are
good sources of vitamins
and antioxidants. Others be-
lieve that cravings lack ex-
planation, except to be once
again attributed to raging
hormones. Many cravings
are similar, including dairy
products, carbohydrates and
fruits. The key to conquer-


ing cravings is to try to sub-
stitute healthier versions.
Indulge in a low-fat frozen
yogurt instead of an ultra-
premium ice cream. Or just
eat the food you crave in
moderation.
Anything goes attitude:
Many moms-to-be adopt a
philosophy that they can eat
as much of whatever they
want when pregnant; hey,
they're going to gain weight
anyway. However, this atti-
tude can be dangerous to
you and your fetus. Preg-
nancy does not give you the
"free pass" to overeat. Gain-
ing excessive weight can
tax your heart, increase your
chances of getting diabetes
and put a strain on your fe-
tus as well as make it much
more difficult to give birth
in a natural and healthy
way. Plus, it will be that
much more difficult to shed
those extra pounds post-de-
livery. Although you're "eat-
ing for two," that extra per-
son is small and only re-
quires about an additional
300 calories per day. Do the
math -- that does not equal
an entire cheesecake!
SO WHAT SHOULD
I EAT?
Following the normal di-
etary guidelines you are ac-
customed to will help you
keep on track. Grain prod-
ucts, vegetables, fruits, pro-
tein foods, and milk and
milk products will give you
the nutrients you and your
baby need.
Grain products provide
carbohydrates, your body's
main source of energy.
Choose 6 to 11 servings of
whole-grain or fortified
products such as whole-
wheat bread, cereals, brown
rice or pasta.
Fruits and vegetables
provide important vitamins
and minerals, as well as
fiber to aid digestion.


Choose at least three veg-
etables and two fruits every
day, including a juice or
fruit rich in vitamin C, such
as an orange.
Protein foods, such as
meat, fish and dried beans,
are crucial for your baby's
growth. Choose 3 to 4 serv-
ings per day. One serving
equals 2 to 3 ounces of lean
meat, poultry or fish, or one
egg. If you are a vegetarian
and don't eat any animal
products, be sure to eat tofu
and other soy products,
dried beans and nuts, as
well as a variety of grains
daily.
Milk and milk products
help build your baby's
bones and teeth. Choose 3
to 4 servings a day of low-
fat milk, yogurt or cheese,
or calcium-fortified soy
milk and other soy-based
products if you are a vege-
tarian or are lactose intoler-
ant.
Sparingly eat sweets
and fats as they can accen-
tuate your growing waist-
line even further. Plus, limit
your salt intake, which can
cause water retention and
swelling in the body.
Also, be sure to check
with your doctor about the
foods that should be avoid-
ed at all costs. Many will
advise steering clear of
processed meats, like cold
cuts or hot dogs, which can
contain bacteria and preser-
vatives that can make you
ill. Many seafood products
are off limits because they
may contain mercury or
bacteria as well. Some nat-
ural foods and herbs are
also on the no-can-do list.
Your health-care provider
can tell you more.
With a little knowledge,
patience and appetite, you
can feel secure that you are
adequately feeding the new
life growing inside of you.


Safely store potential poisons in your home


According to the American
Association of Poison Con-
trol Centers, a child in the
United States is accidentally
poisoned every 30 seconds,
and about 60 percent of all
poisonings occur in children
under the age of six. Most
poisonings happen as a result
of children's curiosity with
their parents' medications, or
when they come in contact
with common household
products.
"Poisons" are really just
household products or med-
ications that seem harmless
but turn deadly when used in
the wrong way. Some of these
potentially dangerous prod-
ucts include:
prescription and over-the-
counter medications


vitamins
alcoholic beverages
shampoos and condition-
ers
deodorants
cosmetics, nail polish and
nail polish remover
mouthwash and tooth-
paste
baby oi
household cleaners
liquid and powder deter-
gents, bleaches and spot re-
movers
vinegar and ammonia
liquid drain openers
car-care products (de-
greasers, car wax, motor oil
and antifreeze
lighter fluid
caulking materials
turpentine and paint thin-
ner


Parents should remain as
cautious as possible to avoid
accidents in areas where poi-
sons are commonly found
such as the kitchen, bath-
room, laundry room and
garage.
To help prevent common
household poisonings, Bren-
da Schroeder, a safety man-
agement specialist at the Uni-
versity of Michigan Health
System, offers some advice
on keeping kids safe.
Lock up poisonous prod-
ucts in a cabinet or store them
up high and out of reach of
children.
Store products in their
original container or make
sure they are labeled proper-
ly. Original labels on the con-
tainer often give first-aid in-


formation.
Make sure household
cleaners or medications have
a child-resistant cap.
Don't leave hazardous
products or medicines out in
the open after they are used -
- return them immediately to
their safe storage spot.
Read the product labels
on all cleaning products so
you know how to safely use
them.
Have the telephone num-
ber of the Poison Control
Center posted near phones in
case of an emergency: 800-
222-1222.

Safety with style in the bath



Creating a stylish bath with universal design is easy Thanks to a few, simple tips


' .. 4


'"Aaaaah ..." That's the
sound we typically hear when
most people enter the bath tub.
Unfortunately, however, for
many Americans the utterance
is more like, "Ugh!" or
"Ouch!" That's because ac-
cording to the American Hous-
ing Survey, only about half of
elderly disabled households
have the home modifications
they need.

But it's not just the aging
that require a safe bath -- bath-
rooms can present numerous
challenges, regardless of age.
From the expecting mother
whose center of balance may
be a bit off-kilter ... to the
"weekend warrior" who pulled
a hamstring playing football
with his old college buddies ...
to the six-year-old who is now
showering on her own and
needs extra support in the bath
.0. everyone can benefit from
universal design products. In
fact, at one time or another in
our lives, almost all of us will
experience a temporary or per-
manent disability.
What Is Universal Design?
So, what exactly is universal
design? And how do we go
about implementing it into our
homes? According to the ex-
perts, the definition of univer-
sal design is a home that is
user-friendly, regardless of a


person's age or limitations --
creating an environment that is
safer, more functional and
comfortable.
"The goal of universal de-
sign is to help people retain
their independent lifestyles,"
says Brian Grant, senior prod-
uct manager at Creative Spe-
cialties International, a divi-
sion of Moen Incorporated,
and a leading designer and
manufacturer of the new
Home Care line of bath safety
items. "It's finding products
that meet the perfect balance
of safety and function, but
with an appealing design. The
best universal designs are
those that blend seamlessly
into the home and become an
integral part of the room and
its d6cor."
To achieve a stylish ap-
proach with universal design,
some manufacturers, such as
Creative Specialties Interna-
tional, are working tirelessly to
create products with safety
features that fit into the overall
style of the room. New offer-
ings include items which are
both functional and aestheti-
cally pleasing.
And the best news? You
don't need to build a new
home to incorporate universal
design features and products.
Many new products can be in-
corporated into an existing


home plan -- making it easier
than ever before to begin mak-
ing your home a more com-
fortable place to live.
Where Should I Start?
While universal design ele-
ments can be implemented in
all areas of the home, the room
that should receive first priori-
ty is the bath. Slippery floors,
bursts of scalding water and
cramped quarters in a shower
or tub can be obstacles for any-
one -- and for a person with a
disability, these hazards are
magnified. In fact, for many,
the bathroom itself can be an
obstacle to independent living.
"Installing just a few ADA-
compliant products in the bath
can make the difference be-
tween an individual taking
care of themselves in their own
home or having to rely on oth-
ers," adds Grant.
While a minimal effort can
result in maximum results,
many homeowners are reluc-
tant to install universally de-
signed products for fear of
their "clinical" look with bulky
and obtrusive designs. Howev-
er, that is no longer the case.
Today's ADA-compliant prod-
ucts feature designs with stur-
dy construction and an appeal-
ing design.
Creative Specialties Interna-
tional placed a high priority on
style and function with its new
Home Care line of ADA-com-
pliant products for the bath.
These products combine safe,
solid construction with an at-
tractive, stylish design.
According to Grant, "We
spent hundreds of hours in
people's homes to allow them
to demonstrate their typical
bathing routine -- from step-
ping into the shower, to how
they steady themselves, to
where they grab their soap or
shampoo from, to even,, hw
they .pick up.the to ':l .lihen
exiting. The informAtion we
gained was priceless when we
designed the new line of prod-
ucts."


So, where should you start
when creating a universally
designed bath? The main con-
cern should be the bathtub or
shower, as this is the location
that causes the most slips and
falls. The following are a few
recommendations to incorpo-
rate universal design in this
area:
Shower
Because the risk of scalding
increases for the disabled or el-
derly, equip your home with a
pressure-balanced shower sys-
tem. Its valve maintains an
even water temperature so
shower users will not feel a hot
or cold surge in water (com-
monly referred to as "shower
shock"). Even when running a
dishwasher or flushing a toilet,
the valve ensures that the wa-
ter remains within two degrees
to keep the shower tempera-
ture consistent, comfortable
and safe.
ADA-Compliant Grab Bars
Grab bars give you some-
thing to grab onto when enter-
ing and exiting the tub. In ad-
dition, they provide added sta-
bility while you are in the
shower. Once institutional in
appearance, they now come in
a variety of stylish designs to
fit any bath d6cor, and some
even match faucet designs to
create a coordinated suite look
for the bath. Consumers can
typically choose from a variety
of sizes, from 12 to 42 inches
in length.
Dual Tub Grip
For those who have difficul-
ty stepping over the side of the
bathtub, there's now an ideal
solution. The new Home Care
Dual Tub Grip from Creative
Specialties International fea-
tures a sturdy, no-wobble de-
sign and two different heights
for grasping -- lending a won-
derful helping hand to step-
ping in and opt of the tub.; De-
signed with textured grab areas
shaped flat for better gripping,
the Dual Tub Grip slides easily
onto the tub wall and secures
into place by a unique system
that clamps into place with a
locking lever (requiring no
turning or twisting motion to
install). This design allows the
Grip to fit on various widths of
tubs and the non-skid pads
protect the tub walls from
scratches.
Adjustable Tub and
Shower Chair
A shower chair is perfect for


any individual who prefers, or
finds it necessary, to sit while
showering. Look for a product
with non-slip rubber feet, as
this feature will not only pro-
vide additional stability, but
also protect the tub from nicks
and scratches. Most shower
chair legs are adjustable and
should fit most,bathtubs.
Hand-Held Shower
A hand-held shower, such as
Moen's Revolution, is the per-
fect accessory to a shower
chair because the product al-
lows you to manipulate the
force, flow and direction of the
water without having to reach
the top of the shower. Be sure
the handheld shower you
choose has a large dial formed
from a non-slip material to
make it easy to hold and use in
a wet environment. A note of
caution regarding hand-held
showers: many of today's
hand-held showers, while con-
venient for seniors and others,
come attached to slide bars to
adjust their height. However,
these are not to be confused
with grab bars, as they do not
provide safe support.
Transfer Bench
Ideal for individuals who
have trouble stepping up and
over the side of a bathtub, a
transfer bench is a perfect op-
tion for those afflicted by
arthritis, a sports injury or re-
cent surgery -- as well as any-
one who cannot easily squat,
bend or lift and needs added
security when entering the tub.
A transfer bench.features two
legs that rest inside the bath
and two legs that rest on the
bathroom floor, so a person
can sit down outside the tub
and then move inside the tub
by sliding across the bench.
The product allows for a safe,
fluid motion into the shower.
Beyond the Bath
While the buhulib and show-
er area should receive top pri-
ority, the rest of the bathroom
should not be ignored when
implementing universal design
elements. Remember that the
goal is to create ease of use in

the bathroom. Following are a
few suggestions for outside the
tub area:
Paper Holder
Changing the toilet paper
roll is an act that most people
take for granted. However, for
individuals afflicted with
arthritis, the required dexterity
needed to handle this task can


make it extremely difficult.
Fortunately, Creative Special-
ties International recently in-
troduced a Pivoting Paper
Holder (available in five dif-
ferent style options) which is
spring-free and features a
unique easy-load format so the
paper roll can be easily
changed out with one hand.
Elevated Toilet Seat
For those who have trouble
bending or sitting, an elevated
toilet seat is an excellent addi-
tion to the bath. Typically, an
elevated toilet seat hooks onto
the bowl so it rests naturally on
the toilet rim and raises the
seat higher than the standard
14-15 inches off the floor.
When purchasing an elevated
toilet seat, look for products
that offer a locking mechanism
for added stability -- as well as
those that can be easily re-
moved for cleaning or when
company is visiting.
Faucets
A universally-designed
bathroom should feature a
faucet with lever handles. This
attribute makes them easy to
activate, especially for those
with a prosthetic device or per-
sons who may suffer from
arthritis. And today's lever
handle faucets are far from
dull looking -- many different
finishes and styles will help
create elegance in the bath
with dramatic designs while
still being universal in design.
Adding a Telephone
A final tip when incorporat-
ing universal design in your
bath is to install a telephone
with a cord that is easily reach-
able from the floor. If an acci-
dent occurs, rescue help is
only a phone call away.
Final Words of Advice
While the thought of incor-
.porating universal design into
your entire home may seem
,overwhelming, it's. simple, to
start with one room and work
from there. By following these
recommendations, you will
make your first step in achiev-
ing a safe, comfortable envi-
ronment -- all while keeping a
sense of style.

If walls could talk, what would yours be saying to you?


Learning to choose colors in the bathroom that make a statement


Listen closely ... do you hear
what your walls are saying?
They might not actually talk, but
the colors you choose for your
bathroom do say something
about the space and how it
"feels." Are they lively and stim-
ulating, quietly neutral or calm-
ing and relaxing? The colors you
choose play a large part in the
overall statement your room
conveys.
In addition, color can have a
functional role in the bath, mak-
ing a small room look larger, a
low ceiling look higher, bringing
cohesiveness with an adjoining
room such as the master bed-
room or quickly adding a touch
of class to the showpiece pow-
der room. With a minimal in-
vestment and a few quick color
changes, a bath with a case of
the "blahs" can become your fa-
vorite retreat. And, with color
doing so much to affect the feel
of a room, the key is learning to
use color correctly.
"Because there are so many
home magazines and decorating
guidebooks on the market today,
people are more comfortable
with using color," said Jay de Si-
bour, president of the Color
Marketing Group and a sales
and marketing executive at Ma-
terial ConneXion in New York.
"Television and computers have
further empowered consumers
to make color decisions. In addi-
tion, traveling has exposed con-
sumers to other influences and
provided a wider color palette.
Hence we are seeing a broader
and more confident use of col-
or."
Great Bathroom Colors
What colors in particular are
well suited to the bathroom?
There is a wealth of information
dealing with color from the Col-
or Marketing Group, a nonprofit
Virginia-based association that
identifies and forecasts color
trends, and from many Internet
sites dealing with home decorat-
ing.
Because of its calming effect
and ties to water, blue is a top
color to consider for the bath-
room. Blue emphasizes the bath
as the room of relaxation and re-
treat. And blue comes in so
many shades, consumers can
create a whole different look de-
pending on whether they choose
a pastel or a more dramatic hue.
According to the Color Mar-
keting Group, blue is also the
dominant color for 2003, includ-
ing new tones such as "cinder
blue" (a gray or silver-type
blue), "blue aire" (a retro '60s
turquoise blue), "deep arctic"
(dusty navy) and "ocean cruise"
(a tropical pastel blue).
"Colors produce both physi-
cal and emotional responses,"


said de Sibour. "Blue is associat-
ed with the sky and sea, so it
evokes thoughts of the environ-
ment. Psychologically, it has a
calming effect. Because of these
attributes, it will continue to be
the most universally popular
color, though you will start see-
ing many mixtures of blue and
green becoming popular." In ad-
dition, blue is a color to use if
your goal is to make a bath ap-
pear larger.
According to information
compiled on the Better Homes
& Gardens web site at bhg.com,
peach is also a great color for the
bath because it provides good
reflection for the skin -- which is
important in a room where ap-
plying makeup and shaving are
everyday occurrences. Peach
and other warm colors such as
yellows, creams and apricots
also provide comfort. These col-
ors invite a person into the room
with warmth and coziness. The
only caution: the cozy feelings
these colors create can make a
small room look even smaller.
When using warm colors, be
sure to intersperse whites and
neutrals to tone down some of
their intensity.
For a quiet, restful space, the
experts at bhg.com suggest
green as a soothing background
color. Also found in the "cool"
family of colors, today's greens
are available in neutral tones that
are understated and can be used
as a colorful alternative to more
traditional neutrals.
"Neutrals today are no longer
the off-whites and beiges of just
a few years ago. Today con-
sumers are flocking to tinted
neutrals that have casts of rose,
blue or green," explained de Si-
bour. "It is not an elimination of
neutrals, but using toned neu-
trals."
The Color Marketing Group
predicts that natural colors such
as yellows, greens and browns
will dominate home d6cor in up-
coming months. "We see a trend
toward nature with less bright,
more sophisticated colors com-
ing into play as well as an over-
all softening of the palette," not-
ed de Sibour. "Also, people are
looking for ways to make color
more interesting by incorporat-
ing pearlescences, metallics, and
translucences that add a sense of
space and dimension."
The group also forecasts the
return of violet and mauve, the
latter taking on a dusty rose ap-
pearance. Other colors that we
will be seeing in the home in
coming months include berry
tones like raspberry, pink-reds
and "currant" (a brown violet).
Accent colors include peach, or-
ange and.lemon-golds.
How to Add Color


Once you've decided on the
colors that you want to add to
your bath, consumers must
know how to add these most ef-
fectively.
What mood do you want to
set? All neutrals in a room pro-
vide for a calm, quiet environ-
ment, while related colors make
for a relaxing effect. On the op-
posite end of the spectrum,
strong contrasting colors create
a lively, stimulating mood.
When decorating, use a mini-
mum of three and a maximum
of six colors. According to the
web site, homefumish.com, it is
best to choose a light color, a
medium color and an accent.
The accent color should be the
darkest or brightest of the colors
chosen and should be used in at
least three places within the
room. Two to three colors when
blended in a room properly can
really bring out a dramatic look,
but adding too many colors can
be overwhelming and change
the otherwise positive use of
color. .
But where do you place these
colors in the room? Here are
some suggestions:
Floors
To "ground" the room, you
will want to choose a flooring
color that is a bit darker than
walls and ceiling.
Cabinets and Vanity
Just like cool colors can make
a small room appear larger,
white cabinets can have this
same effect. Dark cabinets
should only be used in bath-
rooms that have plenty of light.
Countertops
Avoid using dark colored
countertops in the bath since
they tend to show marks. Lighter
countertops including neutral
colors usually work best.
Faucets
Once only available in chrome
and polished brass, today's
faucets are offering homeowners
a dramatic break from the ordi-
nary and a definite way to add a
colorful statement in the bath.
Moen's new Asceri Accents line
is composed of 10 designs in-
fused with color, including blues,
greens, purples, a black and
white combination as well as
neutrals. In addition to color,
these faucets offer interesting de-
signs such as an animal print (Sa-
fari), florals (Hawaii and Water-
color), the popular look of blue
glass (Chinois), a colorful mosa-
ic (Terrazzo), plus many others.
"These Accents were inspired
by a variety of style trends, nat-
ural materials and international
influences," said Linda Mayer,
Moen senior vice president mar-
keting and product development.
"These unique and very different
patterns allow consumers to tru-


ly express
themselves. We
consider them
jewelry for the
bath and anoth-
er area to apply
color."
Walls
Paint is the
perfect place to
start experi-
menting with
color. It's easy
to apply, inex-
pensive and can
easily be re-
painted if the
color is not
what you envi-
sioned. Bath-
room remodel-
ers shouldn't let
the fear factor
stop them from
using a color
they really like.
Start by paint-
ing a small strip
of a wall and a
piece of trim.
Live with those
colors in your
bath for a few
days to see if
you really like
them in the dif-
ferent lights be-
fore painting
the entire room.


Other Places to
Add Color
Use the secondary (or medi-
um) color chosen for your
palette for areas such as sink
skirts, window treatments, and
shower curtains. Then, choose
the darkest and most dramatic
color for towels, rugs and small
accessories to spice up the
room. "A good rule of thumb is
to decorate large surfaces with
softer, neutral colors and use
brighter, stronger colors for ac-
cents. You can also more easily
changethe look of the room by
just changing the accent colors,


plus neutrals are usually easier
to live with," said de Sibour.
Final Tips
Make sure as you shop for
different elements of the room
you bring fabric samples and
color swatches home. A color
under the fluorescent lighting in
a store may look very different
in your home's incandescents.
Although it requires some
work, one tip that may help you
in the design process is to create
a swatch board of all the fabrics
for the room and coordinate it
with your paint colors. This will
help you to see all the colors in
the room at a glance and be able


u -lR


to decide whether or not they
work together.
By following these tips and
color suggestions, you should
be able to use color to make a
style statement in your bath. So
if your walls can talk ... they
will convey the message that
you want!
