.... Manager almost over


YES OR NO: Supervisor of Elections Laura Dees and County Commissioner Ronnie
Morgan look on as Sheriff Harrell Reid announces the unofficial results of the special
election on Tuesday, March 8, concerning the approval or rejection of a cardroom addi-
tion to the Jai Alai fronton. The small but enthusiastic crowd dispersed quickly after the
results indicated that the cardroom had been approved. (Staff Photo)


Cardroom winning


hand at Jai Alai


During several public
meetings, the City Council
members of Jasper and the
Citizens' Advisory Commit-
tee created a short list of five
applicants for the position of
city manager. Of the original
five, one did not respond to a
request for an interview and
was replaced by another ap-
plicant.
The City Council members
interviewed the five candi-
dates on Feb. 28. Several key
areas were discussed, in-
cluding the potential city
managers' backgrounds, ex-
periences and management


styles.
On March 7, the city coun-
cil members and the Citi-
zens' Advisory Committee
met to discuss the intervie-
wees' answers. The candi-
dates were then ranked on a
scale of one to five.
According to Interim City
Manager Myron Holmes,
Mayor Matthew Hawkins
contacted the first person on
the list Kent Cichon of Win-
ter Springs with an offer for
the position. Cichon re-
sponded favorably but
asked for time to consider all
the aspects of the offer. The


mayor expects to hear from
Cichon with a definite an-
swer by the end of this week.
When questioned about a
possible arrival date for the
new city manager, Holmes
laughingly said, "I hope as
soon as possible; I'm ready
to return to retirement."
If Cichon declines the of-
fer, Mayor Hawkins will
then contact the second per-
son on the list Coy Donald-
son of Lee. The other three
candidates are Blake Proctor
of Fort Gaines, GA, Bob
Poor of Jasper, and Carrie
Collins of Avoca, MI.

USDA Tobacco Transition Payment


Program meeting on March 16


USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) will hold
an information meeting
for tobacco quota produc-
ers and quota holders to
discuss the new Tobacco
Transition Payment Pro-
gram (TTPP). The meet-
ing will be held at the
Suwannee County High
School Auditorium, 1314
SW Pine Ave., in Live
Oak, at 6:30 p.m. on
Wednesday, March 16.
Sign-up for the pro-
gram begins March 14


and ends June 17. Pro-
ducers who do not sign
up by June 17 will not re-
ceive a 2005 payment.
The meeting is for to-
bacco quota producers
who are owners, opera-
tors, landlords, tenants,
or sharecroppers who
shared in the risk of pro-
ducing tobacco anytime
between 2002 and 2004.
It is also for quota hold-
ers who owned a farm
with a 2004 basic mar-
keting quota as of Octo-


ber 22, 2004.
Who is eligible for the
TTPP (also called the To-
bacco Buyout), what
types of quota tobacco are
eligible and how quota
producers and quota
holders can obtain pay-
ments will be explained
at the meeting.
For more information
on the Tobacco Transition
Payment Program, visit
the website
www.fsa.usda.gov/to-
bacco.


FSA hurricane assistance

available for local farmers


Help is available for
farmers in Hamilton
County who suffered
agricultural losses as a rg-
sult of the 2004 hurricanes
that have struck Florida.
United States Department
of Agriculture programs
will provide special disas-
ter relief to producers
who suffered crop dam-
age and tree losses, and
must perform related
clean-up.
Applicants for the Flori-
da Nursery Crop Disaster
Program must certify the
number of nursery or fern-
ery acres available for


clean-up assistance.
Clean-up consists of de-
bris removal and associat-
ed activity. Eligible acres
are those in which a mini-
mum of $250 per acre in
expenses are needed to re-
store the area. The pay-
ment rate for producers
covered by insurance or
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program
(NAP) on any nursery or
fernery in the county is 25
percent of the actual dol-
lar value of inventory loss,
and a flat rate of $250 per
eligible acres for clean-up.
Producers must have suf-
fered a minimum of 50
percent loss to be eligible
for payments. The pro-
gram also includes plasti-
culture, which refers to
production practices for
fruit or vegetables where
the soil has been bedded,
fumigated, 'fertilized, irri-
gation installed, and cov-
ered with plastic mulch.
Applicants for the Flori-
da Vegetable, Fruit and
Tropical Fruit Disaster
Program must certify to a
minimum of 50 percent
loss in production or
plant population, as ap-


plicable. Eligible losses in-
clude plasticulture (fruit
and vegetable), tropical
fruit and vegetables other
than plasticulture. 'Pay-
ments for plasticulture
losses will be made in
three categories based on
the amount of investment
and require a minimum of
a 50 percent loss in plastic
or plant population.
Other FSA programs
that can provide assis-
tance to producers are the
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program, the
Disaster Debt Set-Aside
Program, the Emergency
Conservation Program,
and emergency loans.
Emergency Program Sum-
mary Fact Sheets are
available at FSA offices
and have been shared
with the Federal Emer-
gency Management
Agency (FEMA).
For more information
visit the local FSA office,
NW US Hwy 41, Jasper,
or call 792-1308. Informa-
tion is also available from
the Florida State Office
by calling 352-379-4500,

Free on-line help available for

Floridaians from librarians


Ask a Librarian combines
Web convenience with li-
brary expertise to form a po-
tent research tool for people
of all ages, and best of all,
the service is free to every-
one in Florida. The service
puts a librarian's help at the
fingertips of anyone who
has a question, regardless of
age or geographic location.
Students or senior citizens,
computer novices or pros
can use Ask a Librarian.
Some people specific ques-
tions they need answered,
while others just simply
don't know where to begin
looking for information on
the Web.
In order to handle the
thousands of questions Ask


a Librarian receives each
month, the service relies
upon the collective expertise
of librarians representing
over 80 public, academic
and special libraries
throughout Florida. The li-
brarians work together to
offer live chat reference ser-
vice Sundays through Fri-
days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
and on Saturdays from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. During peri-
ods when the live chat refer-
ence service is not available,
or at any other time, indi-
viduals can conveniently e-
mail their questions to Ask a
Librarian.
Ask a Librarian is a grant-
funded service designed to
extend the traditional reach


of libraries to make expert
reference service available
to everyone in Florida. Ask
a Librarian operates as a
free community resource,
just as a local library does.
Visit www.askalibrari-
an.org and follow the sim-
ple instructions for entering
a question. Ask a Librarian
uses unique software that
allows visitors to follow
along on the Web with the
librarian so they can see
how and where the librarian
is locating the information.
Chat sessions are totally in-
teractive and there is no spe-
cial software to download.
Transcripts of the entire ses-
sion are available for print
for future reference.


Tips to ease the tension of tax time


For taxpayers who
promptly file their taxes as
soon as they receive their
forms in the mailbox, April
15 may be just another ordi-
nary day. However, for oth-
ers who are dreading the
tax deadline because they
haven't yet begun to pre-
pare or file, the following
tips make filing taxes easier.
Electronically filed trans-
actions can be completed
more quickly and refunds
can be received sooner than
if filed through the US
Postal system. By choosing
direct deposit, refunds may
be received in two weeks or
less. In addition, refund
checks are not susceptible
to getting lost or stolen
through the mail.
Taxpayers should also de-
termine if they qualify for
"Free File" provided by
companies that are mem-
bers of the Free File Al-
liance. A list is posted on
the IRS web site with infor-
mation on which compa-
nies provide the service.
Fees charged by lenders
who offer Refund Anticipa-
tion Loans (RALs) are ex-


tremely high. When com-
bined with tax preparer
fees and electronic filing
fees that are normally a part
of the deal with the lender,
taxpayers may pay 10% or
more of their refund to re-
ceive it seven to ten days
sooner than would by sim-
ply filing electronically us-
ing Free File. By taking
loans against their return,
they are paying interest to
borrow their own money.
Taxpayers may be eligi-
ble for a tax credit for de-
pendent college students as
a result of the Hope Schol-
arship Credit or the Life-
time Learning Credit. Other
possible education-related
deductions may be avail-
able for those who have
paid tuition and fees, stu-
dent loans and other ex-
penses.
Elementary and sec-
ondary school teachers, as
well as principals, instruc-
tors, counselors and aides
can still deduct up to $250
in school supplies without
itemization through 2005.
The Working Families
Tax Relief Act has been ex-
tended to allow some par-
ents to claim $1,000 per
child under the age of 17.
Taxpayers of states with-
out state income taxes, in-
cluding Florida, can claim


state sales tax deductions,
which can be calculated
from receipts or IRS state
tables.
Monetary donations
made by Jan. 31 to tsunami
relief funds can be included
in charitable deductions on
2004 tax returns. All dona-
tions must be itemized.
Other types of donations ,
such as food or clothing,
can be deducted as 2005
contributions.
The deadline for tradi-
tional or Roth IRA contri-
butions to be considered for
the 2004 tax year is April 15.
The maximum amount that
people under the age of 50
can contribute to IRA ac-
counts is $3,000. The maxi-
mum for people ages 50
and higher is $3,500. These
amounts will increase in
the next two years.
Visit www.irs.gov for ad-
ditional resources, publica-
tions on specific topics and
a list of free tax preparation
resources. These free ser-
vices include the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance Pro-
gram (VITA) for those earn-
ing $35,000 or less, Tax
Counseling for the Elderly
(TCE) and the Armed
Forces Tax Council (AFTC),

So, why renew a low-yield CD and pay taxes
on the interest.

When your CD comes up for renewal, transfer
it into a secure, tax-deferred annuity- a
savings that can grow until you retire and
then pay you a monthly income.

White Springs is a child unfriendly town


Dear Editor:
As a five year resident of White Springs, I have ob-
served many concerns regarding the safety of children in
White Springs. I have spoken to the town manager re-
garding these concerns but none of the problems have
been addressed. It has been several years since I brought
this to the town manager's attention.
First, there are numerous mobile homes that are va-
cant and left standing with broken windows and pieces
of the walls pulled out which would allow children to
enter these mobile homes and possible confront dangers
within. Also, I have seen many refrigerators left in yards
with the doors not removed or secured with a chain and
we all know that these are dangerous for children. Many
old automobiles are sitting around in yards and children
have been known to suffocate in the trunks of aban-
doned automobiles. Trash everywhere allows for infes-
tations of rats.
The town has a playground that is on the opposite side
of US 41 from where most of the children live and we
have a problem with speeding in the town. The play-
ground is on a curve and this creates a danger for chil-





Avm Cf0 ovrpol


dren crossing the street. Our children also have to cross
the street to their school and their library. White Springs
has simply got to get control of their speeding problem.
There are approximately 110 semi-trucks a day going
through town, often over the speed limit. Almost every-
one within two blocks of US 41 has lost a pet to a speed-
er. It is only a matter of time before we lose a child.
The town has children living in substandard housing.
When I inquired about improving the housing in town, I
was told by a city council person (unnamed) that it was
more important to get the infrastructure in place and that
they weren't going to repair any houses for anyone.
The town also has the issue of stray animals and sever-
al pitbulls have been known to roam the town. My own
mother was chased by a pitbull as she was walking her 10
pound dog on Bridge Street recently.
White Springs is a tragedy waiting to happen as far as
children are concerned. I sincerely hope that the town
will not wait for the death of a child before they start to
make the town "child friendly."

Fear factor


What is Christianity real-
ly all about? Recently, I
was involved in a discus-
sion when the following
question/ comment was
presented: It seems Chris-
tianity is based on a conse-
quence. What I mean is
people live their lives a cer-
tain way to get into heaven
or to avoid going to hell.
It's a fear thing. Would all
these people live their lives
differently if not faced with
a consequence?
This, I am afraid, is a
widely held notion con-
cerning Christianity that
the prime motivation for
being a Christian is the as-
surance that one will avoid
hell and make it to heaven
when they die. But is this
really what Christianity is
all about? Do Christians
serve God, primarily, be-
cause they fear what will
happen if they don't?
In resolving this dilem-


ma, we must understand
that the natural state of all
mankind before conver-
sion to Christ is selfishness.
Selfishness is placing your-
self and your happiness
above the rights of every-
one else, including God.
The Bible calls this sin. It is
a wrong purpose of life -
the "what's in it for me"
syndrome.
Now, a person may see
the reality of eternity and
take up Christianity as a
way to find happiness
there, because they believe
this is what they must do
to escape Hell and get to
Heaven. However, such a
person is deceived, be-
cause though they may
change their outward ac-
tion, they are still living for
the same purpose their
own happiness. They are
attempting to serve God
from a selfish (or sinful)
motive.


The most important de-
cision in a person's life is
the eternal choice each
person must make. Some-
times that choice is not
easy as seen in the musi-
cal drama "The Choice."
In the play "The
Choice," which takes
place in Capernaum, a
young Roman centurion
named Marcus falls in
love with Hannah, a
beautiful Jewish girl and
a follower of Jesus. Mar-
cus becomes intertwined
in the life of Hannah and
the execution of Jesus. He
is forced to make an eter-


nal decision: a choice for a
life with Christ and Han-
nah or a life of wealth and
power of the world. In the
balance hangs "The
Choice."
"The Choice" will be
performed at First Baptist
Church in Jasper, 207 NE
Second Street located be-
hind the courthouse, at 7
p.m. Saturday and Sun-
day March 19 and 20.
characters will be dressed
in costumes similar to
that time, and there will
be dramatic light and
sound effects. Admission
is free.


But true Christianity is to
change the ultimate pur-
pose for which you are liv-
ing a change of heart that
results in a change of ac-
tions. It is a change so radi-
cal that the Bible refers to it
as being "born again." It is
to stop living for your own
happiness and to start liv-
ing for God's. Also, it is to
give your neighbor's hap-
piness the same considera-
tion as you give your own.
True Christianity is not
about where we will go
when we die; it's about giv-
ing God the love and honor
He deserves, because of
who He is. He created us
and He is the reason we are
here. He is the one who is
holding everything togeth-
er. He is the wisest and
most loving Person there
is. And that's why we
should love and worship
Him, not because we are
afraid we will go to hell if
we don't.
There's only one reason
for becoming a Christian
and that's because Jesus
Christ deserves the love
and obedience that He can
get out of our lives. I once
heard a wise old mission-


ary put it like this, and I
couldn't agree more: I be-
lieve the only people who
are real Christians are
those who come to Jesus
and say something like
this, 'Lord Jesus, I'm going
to obey you, and love you,
and serve you, and do
what you want me to do, as
long as I live even if I go to
hell at the end of the road,
simply because you are
worthy to be loved and
obeyed and served, and
I'm not trying to make a
deal with you!'"
The idea of Christianity

being based upon a conse-
quence is a misconception
that has probably turned
more "thinking" people
away from God than any-
thing else. The notion that
fear is the motivation for
loving God just doesn't
make sense. Fear can never
produce love. In reality, ac-
cording to the Bible, it actu-
ally works just the oppo-
site: "There is no fear in
love; but perfect love cast
out all fear: because fear
has torment. The one who
fears has not been made
perfect in love" (1 John
4:18).

Navy Seaman Recruit
Horacio G. Camacho
from Jennings, recently
completed recruitment
training in Recruit Train-
ing Command in Great
Lakes, IL. He will contin-
ue his training in the
Naval Medical Corps in
Great Lakes.
Training included
classroom study and
practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid,
firefighting, water safety
and survival, and ship-
board and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also
placed on physical fit-
ness.
The capstone event of
boot camp is "Battle Sta-

gives recruits the skills

Navy Seaman Recruit Horacio G. Camacho


need to succeed in the
fleet. "Battle Stations" is
designed to galvanize
the basic warrior attrib-
utes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and en-
durance in each recruit
through the practical ap-
plication of basic Navy
skills and the core values
of honor, courage and


commitment. Its distinct-
ly "Navy" flavor was de-
signed to take into ac-
count what it means to
be a Sailor.
Seaman Camacho
graduated from Hamil-
ton County High School
in 2004. He is the son of
John and Dora Bethen-
.court, Jennings.


R j recently John
Henry White
and Gerald Ford
came to town hall con-
cerned over rumors they
had heard regarding the
2005 CDBG Neighbor-
hood Revitalization pro-
ject in the First St. and
Second Ave. neighbor-
hood. Mr. White had
heard that the homeowner
would be responsible for
connecting to the new
sewer and the demolition
of their old septic tank.
During their visit I in-
formed them that the
CDGB project would fund
the homeowner's connec-
tion to the new sewer and
the town will demolish
the old septic tanks and
there would be no cost of
the construction to the
homeowner. Thank you,
Mr. White and Mr. Ford,
for your concern. I really
enjoyed your visit.
The Department of


Community Affairs held a
workshop offering Hamil-
ton County and its munic-
ipalities a chance to be the'
showcase of their 'new
project titled "Real Time
Community Change." The
project is a self-help initia-
tive in which the commu-
nities rally citizens to par-
ticipate in a variety of pro-
jects. The Department of
Community Affairs will
provide a grant of $2,000
as seed monies for these
projects.
The town will be sub-
mitting two projects a
memorial park for John
Graham on US Hwy 41
and a community-wide
clean up. The town is
seeking volunteers or
"sparkplugs" to attend a
workshop on Friday,
March 18. Anyone inter-
ested in being a leader on
the projects and attending
the free workshop, please
contact me at the town

hall. We need volunteer
leaders to make this work!
As I left the office for
lunch last week I observed
around 15 vintage Model
T vehicles parked at the
Nature and Heritage Cen-
ter downtown. Talking to
some of the owners, they
.explained that their club
~ias from Ohio. They were
staying in Live Oak and
had wanted to visit the
Stephen Foster Park and
White Springs so they
drove the wonderful old
cars over.
Standing amidst all the
beautifully restored vehi-
cles I observed Mildred
Floyd drive past in the di-
rection of her home. Just a
few minutes later, Mrs.
Floyd returned with
Charles Floyd and they
too reminisced about old
times. Mrs. Floyd ex-
plained that when she
went by and saw the cars
she rushed home and
grabbed Charles to come
and see. The entire group
enjoyed lunch at Wayne
and Rose Stormant's
Suwannee River Diner
and then toured our his-
toric district in their Mod-
el Ts. What a sight!
The town is preparing to
honor our veterans in May
with a special event. Town
Clerk Shirley Heath is
helping to coordinate the
event. We want to make
sure that we honor all the
veterans, those who have
served and those currently
serving. If you have a fam-
ily member or friend who
is a veteran, please contact
Mrs. Heath at 397-2310 to
make sure they are includ-
ed. As we finalize plans
for the event.the town will
issue public notices.
This week the staff at the
Nature and Heritage
Tourism Center honored
Minnie Burton with a sur-
prise birthday party at the
Telford Hotel. There was
good food and fellowship
with co-workers and
4rjendd Tke.,staff at the
Center gave TMr.r. Minnie a
lovely fruit tree for her
yard and the town staff
presented her with a
painted window from lo-
cal folk artist Janet Moses.
Mrs. Minnie is also a part-
time employee of the town
and we look forward to
the times she works with
us. I was taught that a
gentleman never asks a
lady her age, so, Mrs. Min-
nie, I'll just check your
personnel file!
As I am about the town
working and even at my
home on the Suwannee
River, I have noticed the
lonely silence due to the
absence of the Carillon
Tower Bells. It is such a
wonderful thing to hear
the bells playing through-
out the day that during
their absence I have felt
something was missing
from our community.
The Bell Tower was
damaged during the re-
cent hurricanes and major
repairs had to be made. It
is within the last few days
that I have heard the bells
striking the hours and
playing songs, such as
"Way Down Upon the
Suwannee River" again.
All this week I have
worked with my office
window open and enjoyed
the essence of White
Springs ringing through
the bells.
Don't forget the Wild
Azalea Festival on Satur-

The Banks



Perspective

By Jonathan Banks
^^~~~~~~~~ ."777" ^ **^^ ^fc'i:" ^^1


Hi, I'm Jonathon Banks,
but you can call me Banks -
all my frieAds do. I'm report-
ing for duty. I'm here to tell
you what is going on at Cen-
tral Hamilton Elementary; so
buckle up and get ready, be-
cause here we go.
During the past couple of
days every student in Florida
in grades three through ten
has been taking the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test, also called the FCAT.
This test measures the read-
ing, writing, mathematics
and science contents out-
lined by the Sunshine State
Standards. These standards
are taught by teachers
through out the school sys-
tem.
The FCAT is a very impor-
tant test for students because
it determines their privileges
and classes for the next
school year. Another impor-
tant aspect of the FCAT is
that the students' scores de-
termine the schools' grades.
The grade your school re-
ceives also determines the
special privileges the stu-
dents and the school re-
ceives.
The reading selections on
the test were interesting and
much easier to comprehend
this year. We were allowed


sixty minutes to complete the
test and I wish that I could
have had more time than an
hour; I almost didn't com-
plete the test. The aftermath
of all this has affected Central
in a positive way. Students
and teachers were coopera-
tive and respectful of each
other through out the testing
periods. Yes, the test is over!
A couple of weeks ago
Central had a visit from Gov.
Jeb Bush, which was much
appreciated. He offered en-
couraging words, telling the
students "to concentrate and
I hope you do a great job on
the FCAT."
I believe that Central stu-
dents and staff members had
a blast on our Mission Possi-
ble campaign to give the stu-
dents a little practice to pass
the FCAT. The program was
planned for students to take
a weekly pre-test and post-
test and make a 70 percent or
higher score on them. On Fri-
day, the students who
achieved that goal had their
names drawn from a bowl to
win a prize or jump for a cer-
tain amount of money.
All the students and staff
at Central are glad that Mrs.
Amber Jones is back from
her absence, ready to sing
and dance with the whole


community. My class, was
lucky enough to get to visit
her on her first day back.
Mrs. Jones assigned each of
us a song flute and we start-
ed learning to play them
while reading the notes.
Thank you, Mrs. Jones, we
are very glad to have you
back!
Sixth graders have been
planning a field trip in April
to visit Sea World in Orlan-
do. We are looking forward
to getting soaked by Shamu,
the killer whale. Even our
teacher, Mrs. Norris, plans
on getting wet and riding the
giant roller coaster, Kraken,
with a speed of 65 mph.
Let's not forget our fantas-
tic speller, Bria Davis. She
competed in the Regional

Welcome back to music
teacher, Mrs. Jones. She's
been spending precious time
with her new son, Fischer.
He's probably been hearing
some lovely lullabies!
Our NHE family extends
heartfelt sympathy to the
family of Mrs. Minnie Shiver.
Mrs. Shiver was a teacher in
the Hamilton School District
for many years. Many of the
middle-age/ older generation
had the privilege to learn in
her classroom. She was the
epitome of everything a
teacher should be. Her legacy
will long be felt and remem-
bered by the numerous lives
she touched in a very special
way.
Thanks to all parents who
encouraged their children to
do their best during testing.
Listening, following direc-
tions, and staying on task are
key issues in "test success".
We appreciate those who
sent treats during testing.
Please continue to support
your children and their
teachers as we work together
in "Changing Lives Through
Quality Education."

White Springs

~~~~ ~ec ~


SBy Johnny Bullard


It is that time of the year
"between seasons" when
it is not really winter and
not really spring. We have
some of nature's "heralds"
such as the blooming of the
wild yellow jasmine, the
redbud trees, and the wild
pear trees. For a space of
time, the old "sand pear"
tree in Preston Stormant's
pasture on the Woodpeck-
er Route was just beautiful
in full bloom. I love the
spring of the year and very
soon we will see it in its full
glory with azaleas, dog-
woods, and so many other
flowering plants and trees
giving us one of the most
blessed shows of the year -
wonderful spring in our
beloved Hamilton County.
Speaking of spring -
don't forget about two up-
coming and important
events that will soon be
taking place in our town.
First, our fifth annual Wild
Azalea Festival will be held
on Saturday, March 19, in
the Town of White Springs.
Come out and enjoy re-
gional crafts and foods,
marvelous musical enter-
tainment, the Miss Azalea
Contest, and the duck race.
The Wild Azalea Festival is
a wonderful day to spend
some quality time with the
entire family right here
"Way Down Upon the
Suwannee River."
Also, mark your calen-
dars for Sunday, March 27,
as our community will cel-
ebrate our 38th annual
Easter Sunrise Service at
the Stephen Foster Muse-
um That's right folks, ,this
year, because of all the re-


pairs being done at the
Tower, our Sunrise Service
will be held on the front
lawn of the Museum The
gates of the Memorial will
open at 6:15 a.m. There will
be a carillon concert at 6:45
a.m. and the Sunrise Ser-
vice will begin at 7 a.m.
Area ministers, choirs, and
soloists will participate in
this annual springtime
event of music and devo-
tional on the banks of the
Suwannee River. Everyone
is invited to attend. The ad-
mission to the park is free
for this event. There will be
a time of fellowship fol-
lowing the service inside
the Stephen Foster Muse-
um. A love offering will be
taken to fund next year's
event.
Speaking of music and
special events, I was de-
lighted that, after the First
Saturday Coffeehouse on
Saturday, March 5, that
Florida's Environmental
Troubador and good
friend, Dale Crider, Wind-
sor, who hosted the Coffee
House, as well as good
friends Jay and Linda
Willingham, Larry Hoover
and Cathy Aiken, all of
Jasper, joined Rhett
Bullard and me at the farm
for a great evening of mu-
sic, laughter, and stories -
Oh, what a time we had -
sweet music, laughter,
good food, good friends -
and enough pleasant mem-
ories to last till we meet
again.
The Stephen Foster Citi-
zens Support Organization
will meet in the auditorium
of the park service building


on Monday, March 21, be-
ginning at 6 p.m. Mark
your calendars and make
your plans to attend.
Amanda and I drove
down to Branford on Satur-
day for the funeral services
of the mother of our dear
friend and neighbor, Jim
Tompkins. I sang at the fu-
neral and Amanda accom-
panied me. The little
Methodist Church in Bran-
ford was very pretty and,
even though, we were trav-
eling for a sad occasion, I
enjoyed my visit to Bran-
ford. When I worked in
Suwannee County Schools,
I always enjoyed my trips
down to Branford the lit-
tle community reminds me
of White Springs without
all of White Springs' his-
toric charm you know I
have to remain true to
"home," but if I had to
choose a place in north
Florida that reminded me a
lot of White Springs it
would be Branford.
I have always been greet-
ed with friendliness and
warmth when I visited
there, and the members of
the Methodist Church, in-
cluding their pastor, were
so friendly, helpful, and
well organized for this
event, and Keith Daniels
and the group from
Daniels Funeral Home, as
always, did a marvelous
job. Our sincere sympathy
to Jim, Amelia, and all the
family.
The sympathy of the
White Springs community
is extended to the family of
Mrs. Minnie Shiver, Jen-
nings. Mrs. Shiver, a long-
time resident of Jennings,
and a respected and long-
time educator in the
Hamilton County School
system from which she re-
tired a number of years
ago, was known to be a
"top notch" teacher of
mathematics. Many of her
former students will attest
that she was a wonderful
arid dedicated teacher who


made a positive impact on
their lives. Flags at all of
Hamilton County's public
schools flew at "half mast"
in honor and tribute to
Mrs. Minnie Shiver on
Monday, March 7. Our
prayers go out to Mrs.
Shiver's family.
The sympathy of the
White Springs community
is extended to the families
of Charles "Trigger" Paf-
ford and Joe Corbett,
Jasper. The families have
the prayers of our commu-
nity.
The Grand Opening of
our Dollar General Store in
White Springs was held on
Saturday, March 5. We
wish the Dollar General
"all the best." We are so
happy to have this addition
to "our town." Please stop
by and patronize our Dol-
lar General Store, as well as
all of our town's local busi-
nesses. We appreciate each
and everyone.
I was so pleased to note
that our Town Manager,
Robert Townsend, wrote
an article about Town Hap-
penings for the Jasper News
this past week. We appreci-
ate Bobby keeping us "up
to speed" on the happen-
ings in town government
as they relate to us in White
Springs. Thank you so very
much. We appreciate our
Mayor, Town Council,
Town Manager, and all of
our town employees in the
Town of White Springs.
Laura Leigh and I shared
just a short visit with Rev.
and Mrs. Graham (Charles
and Brenda) in the Dollar
General Store on Sunday
afternoon. It was so good
to see Charles again. For a
long time he was pastor of
A.M.E. Churches away in
Jacksonville, Tampa, and
Daytona, but I understand,
he is now pastor in Live
Oak. I am so pleased he is
closer to home. It was good
to share a visit and ex-
change pleasantries and
feel the warmth of the ever


ready smiles of good
friends blessings not to be
taken for granted.
This is the time of year
when one is reminded of so
many spring events of long
ago For many years, the
Florida Folk Festival was
held the first weekend in
May and for many years,
even after the Folk Festival
was moved to Memorial
Day weekend, students
from South Hamilton Ele-
mentary danced and plait-
ed the Maypole. Ruby
Williams, longtime, now
retired, Hamilton County
educator, was "top notch"
on teaching students how
to plait the Maypole. Hap-
pily, Ruby still substitutes
a lot for us at White
Springs, and I am going to
persuade her to teach a
group at our school about
plaiting the Maypole again.
I am sure this skill is not a
benchmark, nor is it a Sun-
shine State Standard, but it
is an important piece of lo-
cal tradition that needs to
be preserved. Good memo-
ries.
Please remember the fol-
lowing in prayer: Kenneth
Shaw, Ben Register, Ralph
Hardwick, Ouida Hard-
wick, Malcolm

mie Smith, Ella Taylor,

Ouote for the week:
"Ah May the Red Rose
Live Always" -
(Words and Music
by Stephen C. Foster.)
"Ah! May the Red Rose
live always
To smile upon
Earth and Sky -
Why should the
lbeatiful ever weep?
Why should the


beautiful die?
Lending a charm to
every ray
That falls on her
cheek of light,
Giving the zephyr
kiss for kiss,
And nursing the
dew-drop bright -
Ah! May the Red Rose
live always,
To smile upon Earth
and Sky!
Why should the
beautiful ever weep?
Why should the
beautiful die?
Long may the daisies
dance the field,
Frolicking far and near!
Why should the innocent
hide their heads?
Why should the
innocent fear?
Spreading their petals
in mute delight
When morn in its
radiance breaks,
Keeping a floral festival
Till the night loving
primrose wakes -
Ah! May the Red Rose
Live Always -
To smile Upon Earth
and Sky!
Why Should the Beautiful
ever weep?
Why should the
Beautiful Die?
Lulled be the dirge in
the cypress bough,
That tells of departed
flowers!
Ah! That the butterfly's
gilded wing -
Fluttered in
evergreen bowers!
Sad is my heart for the
blighted plants -
Its pleasures are
aye as brief-
They bloom at the young
year's joyful call,
And fade with the
autumn leaf.
Ah! May the red rose
live always -
To smile upon earth
and sky -
Why should the beautiful
ever weep?
Why should the .,
beautiful die?"

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Thanks to friends who
learn of news that would
be of interest to you and
they think to tell me so that
it can be passed on to you
through the paper.
At church through Irene
Morgan, we learned that
Gene Sandlin had been in
Jasper and in the area. He
and his wife, Mattie (who
was from Live Oak) have
been making their annual
trip to visit with family
and friends in the area.
Gene is the son of the late
Kirby and Jeptha Sandlin,
a brother to the late Jack
Sandlin. Gene and Mattie
have been with Mattie's
aunt, Laverne Bryan in
Live Oak. Gene was in
school with classmates Bil-
lie Bradshaw Payne and
Frances Hackle Stevenson;
these were the only ones
we were able to get in
touch with at the time and


they had been away at the
time of Gene's visit and
had not gotten to see him.
Willa Dean Sandlin, who
was married to Gene's
brother, the late Jack San-
dlin, had seen him and vis-
ited with him and his wife,
Mattie and the aunt, Lav-
erne, were coming to
Jasper this week so the
three ladies could visit and
have lunch together, Mat-
tie and Laverne were want-
ing to get a meal at H&F.
Gene returned to their
home in Artesia, NM, on
Sunday and Mattie will re-
main for a.few days.
While in the area, Gene
and Mattie, and Laverne
visited with Mr. Corbett
Deas and his daughter,
Margie, in Atlanta, GA.
Gene and Mattie have
lived in New Mexico for a
number of years where
Gene has been in the refin-


ery business; they always
like to come back to the
area to see family and
friends. Mattie planned to
meet her brother in Mari-
anna, to go to Ft. Walton,
for a visit with her brother
and his family.
We talked with Dean
Sandlin and learned that
Robert Sandlin has recently
been promoted with the
Sheriff's Department in
Marion County, he is now
Captain/Asst. Bureau
Chief Robert Sandlin. Capt.
Sandlin is the son of Willa
Dean and the late Jack San-
dlin. Robert and his wife,
the former Stephanie
Browne (daughter of Bun-
nie Browne, Jasper, and the
late Wayne Browne) and
their ten-year-old daugh-
ter, Kaley, live in Ocala,
Stephanie teaches pre-K at
St. John's Episcopal School
in Ocala.
In talking with Sandra
(Dail) Tickel we caught up
on their family. Sandra and
her husband, Robert, have
both retired, Sandra from
the nursing profession and
Robert with the telephone


company in Plant City,
have down-sized, sold
their home and moved into
a condominium so they do
not have to worry about
caring for yards, etc. and
they can spend their time
with their children and
grandchild. Jimmy recently
married; Carol is in the real
estate business in Naples,
and Amy is married. She
and her husband and son,
Robbie (for his grandfather
Robert) live in Jacksonville,
where Amy teaches fourth
grade at Mandarin Elemen-
tary School.
Sandra is the daughter of
the late Reddin and Helen
Dail, who were very spe-
cial residents of Jasper for
many years. Reddin will
best be remembered as the
Fire Chief and Helen was
finance officer for the coun-
ty school system, they were
both active members of the
First United. Methodist
Church, Lodge, and East-
ern Star. We lived next
door to the Dails for seven
years and they were very
special to our family for
many years, we felt they


were part of our family and
still miss them. When we
called to talk with the Tick-
els and left a message it
was just a few minutes be-
fore Sandra returned the
call. They were in Jack-
sonville, with Amy and her
family, had picked up their
messages, oh, the wonders
of modern technology.
A resurrection musical is
planned at First Baptist
Church, Jasper, for Satur-
day, March 19 and Sunday,
March 20. We will try to
have more information for
next week.
The community has been
saddened by the death of
Mrs. Minnie Shiver this
week; the funeral service
was held Monday at Reid
Funeral Home. Mrs. Shiver
is remembered.by her con-
tributions to the education
of so many of the county,
she was devoted to her
family and friends. For sev-
eral years she resided at
Suwannee Valley Nursing
Center and was a delight to
all who had the privilege of
visiting with her there. Our
sympathy to the family of


this lovely lady.
On Sunday, Mrs. Lillian
Bembry, Mrs. Mary Bem-
bry and Shelley and James
Head attended the funeral
of Mrs. Flora Bembry, wid-
ow of the late John Bem-
bry. The funeral was held
at the First Baptist Church
in Havana, FL She had
moved to Havana in recent
years to be near their sons;
John, who is a dentist in
Tallahassee, FL; Charles
who is a pharmacist in
Quincy, FL and Gary who
is a CPA in Tallahassee.
Also attending the funeral
were Jim and Karen Rock-
more who flew down from
Orangeburg, SC and at-
tended the funeral with Hi-
ram and Delores Bembry
from Tifton, GA.
Good Friday Service will
be at First Presbyteriarl
Church, sponsored by the
Ministerial Alliance on Fri-
day evening before Easter,
Other information will be
provided next week.
Looking forward to hear-
ing from you soon.

Hamilton



s V By Johnny Bullard


The month of March
definitely came in like a
"Lion" last Tuesday. It
would have been a won-
derful day for flying kites.
As Winnie the Pooh often
stated it was a "blustery"
day here at South Hamil-
ton.
We are still calling "Kit-
ty, Kitty, Kitty" here at
South Hamilton and we
hope the "Cat will be in
the Bag" next Friday,
March 11.
After that, we will all
hold our collective breaths
to see if our "Cat" is
judged at the big pet show
over at the Department of
Education as an "A, B, or
C" cat We are aiming for
an "A+" but no matter
what grade we receive, we
feel confident that our
staff members and stu-
dents have done their
very best, and we congrat-
ulate each one on their ef-
forts.
Mrs. Edwards and Mrs.
Erixton's Pre-Kinder-
garten class will be taking
their next field trip to Sil-
ver Springs near Ocala on
Wednesday, March 16.
Please mark your calen-
dars. Students will enjoy
traveling on the famous
glass bottomed boats.
Miss Runyon and Ms.
Johnson's kindergarten
class has finished their
Stanford 10 test. We want
to thank our parents for

sleep and giving us
snacks. We have a new

name is Dustin Anderson.

help us by reminding
your child which is the

the minute hand on the
clock. We can also tell
you about money. Have a
good weekend.
Mrs. Mickler's first
grade class is happy that
most of us have complet-
ed the Stanford 10 test.
We are looking forward to
flying kites, St. Patrick's
Day, the first day of
spring, and our spring
break. Our classroom is
decorated with shamrocks
for St. Patrick's Day and,
very soon, we will be dec-
orating with spring flow-
ers and Easter Eggs. East-
er is just around the cor-
ner.
Mrs. Schmid's second
grade class tested Monday
through today.
Students were given the
Stanford 10 test for the
first time. Each morning
they enjoyed snacks dur-
ing break time. In the af-
ternoons, students com-
pleted art activities or en-
joyed a movie. We hope
that all did well on the
test.
Mrs. Schmid has a new
granddaughter, named
Victoria Lorraine Schmid.
Victoria was born on
Tuesday, March 1, at 11:20

Third grade is very hap-
py that the biggest part of
the FCAT is over. We
worked very hard and re-
ally did our best to
"stomp the FCAT!"
Wednesday, March 9, we
had a reading and math
test to do. We've been
learning about birds this
week. Do you know what
makes a bird a bird? Ask
one of the third graders. It
has been lots of fun learn-
ing about them. We also
like to thank Mr Hicks
and Mr. Tyre for our Earth
Day presentation-and tree.
We will work very hard to
take care of our trees. The
student of the week this
week is Jeremy Wallace.
Jeremy is a very quiet stu-
dent. He enjoys math and

All of our students in

him this coming week. We
wish them all the best of
luck.

53rd year, the Florida Folk
Festival is one of America's
oldest folk festivals. Staged
alongside the legendary
Suwannee River, the event
showcases the cultural tradi-
tions of Florida's many com-
munities with music, dance,
crafts, food and storytelling.
Harris will be among more
than 300 Florida performers
taking the stage and offering
workshops throughout the 3-

career, Harris has recorded
with many of the luminaries
of traditional and country
music, including Johnny
Cash, Tammy Wynette, Roy
Orbison, The Chieftains, Dol-

Bill Monroe. She also has
recorded with innovators like
Neil Young, Bob Dylan,
Beck, Tracy Chapman and
Elvis Costello. Since 1975,
she has produced eight gold
or platinum albums, relying
upon country standards such
as the Louvin Brothers' "If I
Could Only Win Your Love"
and taking risks to perform
songs penned by writers who
were unknown at the time, in-
cluding Jesse Winchester,
Townes Van Zandt, Delbert

A gifted songwriter and in-

Harris was inducted into the

How loud is

too loud?


Experts say that toy cell
phones and portable stereos
may be damaging our chil-
dren's hearing by delivering
potentially deafening decibel
levels to their ears. Coupled
with loud blockbuster
movies and computer games
targeted to young people, our
youth may be at increased
risk for noise-induced hear-
ing loss (NIHL) -- a com-
mon, but preventable form of
injury.
More than 30 million
Americans are exposed to
hazardous sound levels on a
regular basis, and an estimat-
ed 10 million already have
hearing loss from noise. The
National Center for Environ-
mental Health conducted a
study of noise-induced hear-
ing threshold shifts (NITS)
among U.S. children and
found that 14.9 percent of
children between the ages of
6 and 19 ,carJ have hearing
loss in one or both ears. The
study suggests that children
are being exposed to exces-
sive amounts of hazardous
levels of noise. How loud is
too loud? According to
guidelines established by the

(NIOSH), regular or pro-
longed exposure to noises
over 85 dB (decibels) can
1:pose a hearing risk.
"In general, if you have to
-raise your voice to be heard,
:-the environment is too loud
-*for your ears," says re-
; searcher Sig Soli, Ph.D,
SHouse Ear Institute. "And
Sthe louder the sound, the less
4 time it takes before your
Shearing will be affected. Just

AOsound -- the maximum dura-

sound level. Cranking up the
volume too high on a stereo
or headset can pose a similar
risk."
In an increasingly noisy

gy is popular with teens and
pre-teens, making them
more vulnerable to noise-in-
duced hearing loss. Parents
can set a good example by
turning down the volume
levels of all household stere-
os and wearing hearing pro-
tection around other noise
sources like power tools and
vacuum cleaners, and should
encourage children to wear
hearing protection (ear plugs
or ear muffs) in noisy envi-
ronments.
Advise kids to follow
these tips for hearing con-
servation: avoid loud noises
in excess of 85 decibels,
lower volume levels on your
stereo and wear earplugs in
noisy environments. Here
are the sound output levels
of some activities that could
pose a risk for hearing:
Movies with super
sound systems can range
from 80 to 100 decibels
Concerts/Live Music

It's never too late

to get in shape
According to The National Institute on Aging, less than one-third of Americans
over 55 are physically active. But those who have-adopted a regular exercise
program are living longer and enjoying their years to the fullest.
In fact, regardless of age or state of health, older adults can significantly slow
the deterioration of both body and mind by engaging in regular cardiovascular
exercise and strength training. Research shows that older adults who exercise
have a lower risk of coronary heart disease; lower risk of hypertension;
decreased blood pressure; control of late-onset diabetes; relief for arthritis pain;
increased bone density;
reduced risk of fractured
bones; better balance; ability
to avoid accidental injuries;
maintenance of personal
independence; and can
engage in active activities
such as skiing, running and
Stcycling.
Trainer and track competitor
Bill Collins is proof that an
S"- active lifestyle promotes
S' good health throughout your
life. At age 53, Collins holds
the world age group record in


S200-meter record in three
different age groups. He's
won 10 World Masters titles
and more than 70 American
', .1*: 1.1 Masters crowns, and he
S1 hasn't been beaten in years!
S- ':. .' Cham i His world records in the 100,
S'-,^-^ ",^ ,.,200, and most recently, 400
;meter races, make him the
t' v '' fastest runner alive for his
S... 11' dag1e. No one in his age group
...... .. ^i anywhere in the world has
run as fast.
At age 53, trainer and track competitor Bill Collins Co s sho in re
proves that staying active is crucial for maintaining Collins should inspire
proper fitness and good health no matter how old you anyone who leads a
are. sedentary lifestyle, especially
older adults who, at 50, are
slowing down or feel it's too late to start an exercise program. Collins has no
intention of slowing down. Presently, he is only a 1/2 second off his best
running time achieved at age 18. In fact, he ran faster at age 50 than when he
was 40 -- thanks in part to a healthy exercise plan.
EXERCISE PROGRAM TIPS
For those who are older like Collins and want to get in shape, the American
Academy of Family Physicians offers these tips for starting an exercise
program:
* Wear comfortable, well-fitting clothing and sturdy shoes with good arch
support, and an elevated and cushioned heel to absorb shock. Collins friends call
him "X-man" for the
CW-X Performance Conditioning Wear.tights he wears. It's a new technology
that allows runners of all ages to maximize their performance because it
supports musjes and joints and reduces fatigue. Collins wears them while
running, biking'. and hiking. For more information, visit www.cw-x.com.
* Check with' your doctor first, then start slowly with exercises you are most
comfortable with. 'Yoi'll be less likely to injure yourself and you will prevent
soreness. Start within walking. As you become used to it, you can increase the
intensity of your workout.
* Engage in sonietypeof aerobic activity (walking, swimming or bicycling) for
at least 30 minutes every day, and resistance or strength training two days per
week.
* Warm up for five minutes before each exercise session by walking slowly or
stretching. Cool down with more stretching for five minutes (longer in warm
weather).
* Don't exercise if you feel under the weather, have a cold, the flu, or another
illness. Wait until you feel better. If more than two weeks pass, be sure to start
slowly again.
* If your muscles or joints are sore the day after exercising, you may have
overexerted yourself. Next time, exercise at a lower intensity.
* If pain or discomfort persists; if you have chest pain or pressure; have trouble
breathing or have excessive shortness of breath; are light-headed or dizzy; have
difficulty with balance; or feel nauseous while exercising, talk to your doctor.

Optician,
Here's a quick test that's
Important to your health: do
Syou know which type of eye
care provider you visit for
Your eye glasses, disease test-
ing and treatment and
surgery? Do you see an opti-
cian, optometrist or ophthal-
mologist?
If you're like most Ameri-
cans, you're not quite sure,
but it does matter to you
,whether the person you are
"seeing" is educated and
trained to meet your eye
healthcare needs. A survey of
Americans, conducted by
StrategyOne Research,
showed that 30 percent of re-
spondents do not know which
kind of eye care professional
they visit. A total of 70 per-
cent are confused about or
Don't know which type of eye
care professional has a med-
ical degree, yet 96 percent
say they want a medical doc-
tor to carry out their complex
eye care needs, such as pre-
vention or treatment of eye
disease and eye surgery.
Here is a quick primer on
the differences between eye
care providers. All of these
professionals work together


optometrist, ophthalmologist


to ensure overall eye health.
Opticians (LDOs) fill pre-
scriptions, issued by ophthal-
mologists and optometrists,
for corrective eyewear. These
prescriptions may include
eyeglasses, contact lenses,
low vision aids and ocular
prostheses. Opticians have
two years of training at an ac-
credited college of oph-
thalmic dispensing.
Optometrists (ODs) must
have some undergraduate ed-
ucation and a four-year op-
tometry degree. They do not
have a medical degree or take
part in surgical internships or
residencies. In general, they
work with patients who have
"healthy" eyes. Optometrists
are trained to conduct prima-
ry eye care procedures such
as refraction and fitting of
contact lenses.
Ophthalmologists (MDs or
DOs) undergo 12 years of un-
dergraduate and medical or
osteopathic education and
residency. This specialized
education and training pre-
pares ophthalmologists to un-
derstand the relationship be-
tween your eyes and the rest
of your body, how certain


conditions -- like diabetes --
can affect your eyes.
"When I was an op-
tometrist, I learned how to
treat healthy eyes and correct
vision with glasses or con-
tacts," says Dr. Stephen
Waller, an ophthalmologist
and former optometrist from
San Antonio, Texas. "It was-
n't until medical school and
surgical residency to become
an ophthalmologist, though,
that I learned how to diag-
nose and treat diseased eyes
with medication, lasers and
scalpels."
He says this more exten-
sive training and education
enabled him to understand
the relationship between
these procedures, other dis-
eases and body systems. "It
concerns me that people who
haven't gone through this
further education and train-
ing may be inclined to try to
treat 'sick' eyes when they
haven't had any experience
in how to do this. Before I
was an ophthalmologist, I
didn't know what I didn't
know. But I had a feeling that
trying to stretch beyond my
limits could impact not just a


patient's eyes, but their over-
all health."
Bill Christofferson, a se-
nior citizen from Utah, en-
courages people to under-
stand who they are seeing for
their eye care. Several
months ago, a growth devel-
oped on Bill's eyelid. He got
a first opinion from an indi-
vidual in a "doctor's coat"
who recommended surgery
and offered to perform the
procedure. It was only when
he sought a second opinion --
this time with an ophthalmol-
ogist -- that he realized the
first opinion was offered by
an optometrist who was not
licensed under law to per-
form the surgery.
"I was shocked when
someone without a medical
degree tried to come near my
eye with a scalpel," says
Christofferson. The ophthal-
mologist offered a different,
correct diagnosis, performed
the surgery and Bill's story
had a happy ending.
If you do find yourself
faced with a complex eye
care need -- such as diagnosis
and the need for treatment

tions for an eye disease, or
any type of laser or scalpel
surgery -- remember to en-

sure that the person providing
your treatment is an ophthal-
mologist -- an "Eye MD."


Are yo
SNearly 40 percent of Ameri-
Scans are taking over-the-counter
supplements and vitamins, but
according to the National Insti-
,tutes of Health, some herbal
,'remedies have negative, even
dangerous, effects on their own
Sor when taken with other med-
Sications.
For instance, research has
'shown that the herb St. John's
wort, used by some people to
i treat depression, may cause cer-
2 tain drugs to become less effec-
Stive.
A Consumer Reports analysis
of 19 Echinacea pill supple-
ments found three products had
.less than the labeled amount;
Four products contained
'amounts of lead that exceeded
)California Prop 65 standards;
and over all, the amount ofEchi-
2 nacea varied substantially from
product to product, even within
Sthe same bottle.
The concerns about supple-
Sment safety coupled with the ex-
pansive amount of vitamin and
'supplement products available
make deciding which ones are
right for you and your needs a
Daunting task. Many people are
so overwhelmed by what they

they just decide not to bother.
This isn't always the best deci-
sion, considering nutritional
supplements can be used to fill
in gaps created by the standard
American diet.
"Even informed consumers
can feel inundated when trying
to shop for supplements," says
Jeremiah McElwee, a
spokesperson for Weil Nutri-
tional Supplements, a new line
of supplements developed by in-
tegrative medicine expert Dr.
Andrew Weil. According to
McElwee, there are a number of
steps you can and should take to
ensure you purchase the safest
and most effective supplements
possible.
"Make sure the supplements
that you purchase are made by a
manufacturer that is certified for
Good Manufacturing Practices
(GMPs) by a third party organi-
zation, such as the NNFA (Na-
tional Nutritional Foods Associ-
ation) or the NSF (National San-
itary Foundation)," says McEl-
wee. The best way to determine
if the brand you are considering
is GMP certified is to visit one of
the certifying bodies' Web sites,
as they will list which compa-
nies participate in their pro-
grams.


"Always be certain not to take
a higher dose of a supplement
than is listed on the label, unless
your health care practitioner ad-
vises you to do so," he contin-
ues. "And if you suffer any ad-
verse side effects from any sup-
plement, immediately stop tak-
ing it and notify your health care
practitioner."
According to McElwee, there
are some general safety guide-
lines to keep in mind when tak-
ing supplements.
Always consult a physician
before making any changes in
your daily health and nutrition
regimen, and that includes tak-
ing any dietary supplements
Always be very careful to
take supplements as indicated
on the'packaging
*Take vitamin supplements
with food, as this aids in diges-
tion
Finally, be sure to take sup-
plements consistently to achieve
the maximum health benefits

Clogged drain? You can fix it yourself without harmful chemicals


Why is it that drains get
clogged only at the most in-
opportune time? Typically,
you are hosting a party.
Everything is running
smoothly and then the rem-
nants of hors d'oeuvres back
up in your sink. Clean-up


comes to a screeching halt.
At the same time, belea-
guered by the unusually
high volume of use, the toi-
let clogs, and begins to over-
flow. Not only can this em-
barrass you and your guests,
it also puts a serious damper


on the festivities!
Until now, clearing your
own drains has involved
pouring not only dangerous
chemicals, but also your
money and energy, down the
drain. According to a recent
survey, the average Ameri-


can home gets a clogged toi-
let or drain between one and
three times each year, which
can add up to considerable
costs and inconvenience. It
is now possible to solve this
common household problem
quickly, safely, economical-
ly and all on your own with
new CLR Power Plumber --
a pressurized drain opener
that forces through build-
ups of hair, soap and grease.
Instead of relying on ex-
pensive plumbers, harsh
chemicals or the muscle
needed for plunging, a quick
blast of pressurized gas
blows through the clog, not
only clearing it away, but
also cleaning and deodoriz-
ing as it works -- with no
risk of damage to the plumb-
ing. And, unlike most chem-
ical drain openers, it can be
used on toilets as well as
sinks and drains.
A backed-up toilet can
lead to unsanitary and messy
situations in the bathroom.


Since most chemical drain
openers can't be used in toi-
lets, the typical solution is to
get "down and dirty" with a
plunger or sewer snake. The
Power Plumber is capable of
clearing stoppages in both
sinks and toilets, and is so
simple to use -- generally
one application will solve
the problem in seconds.
It is no longer necessary
to spend time and money on
a plumber. When asked, 54
percent of Americans who
have called a plumber to
come and clear a clogged
drain or toilet say they have
paid $50 or more for the
service (and 16 percent paid
over $100). That's pretty
expensive when compared
to the cost of using CLR
Power Plumber, which is
about $1 per application,
with up to 15 applications
in every can.
Monthly usage of CLR
Power Plumber can actually
prevent clogs. "Never be-


fore has one product made it
so simple and economical
for homeowners to take
charge of their own plumb-
ing needs," says Beth Mack-
ey, marketing director for
CLR. "And what's more, it
is safe for you and your fam-
ily, as well as the environ-
ment -- with no chemicals,
acids, lye or CFCs."
Harnessing the power of
pressure in a can provides an
effective economical solu-
tion that is safe for pipes,
the environment and the
family. So don't let your fes-
tivities be disrupted by a
clogged toilet or drain.
Reach for the CLR Power
Plumber and your guests
will never know there was a
problem!
For more household tips,
see what other CLR products
can do for you or to locate a
CLR Power Plumber retail-
er, log on to

(800) 323-5497.


Wallcovering of the future -- Hangs in minutes, removes in seconds


More than ever
before, we look to
our homes as a
haven and shelter
from the harsh re-
alities of life. This
sense of personal
refuge calls us
back at the end of
every day to a
place where we
can just relax and
enjoy our sur-
roundings. The
American dream
of home owner-
ship, establishing
and building a sol-
id base, is an im-
portant component
of this; and with
interest rates of
the past several
years being low,
more 'peFople are
realizing that
dream.

homeowner through the
process.
One timeless element of
decorating is the use of wall-
paper and today we are see-
ing it everywhere. The Hol-
lywood sets of movies, tele-
vision and commercials are
showing damasks and florals
in living rooms and bright
cherry red prints in the
kitchen. Glossy decorating
magazines abound with
showcase rooms done in
wallcoverings and fine fab-
rics. However this basic in-
strument of home d6cor is
all but absent on the decorat-
ing and the home improve-
ment shows. They do exhibit
the hours of steaming and
scraping in order to remove
old wallpaper, followed by
possible repair of the walls.
Hardly e% er do the producers
of such shows replace the
old wallpaper with new. It's
not the lack of designs, they
tell us; quite frankly, it's the
difficulty factor. The product
has been hard for the do-it-
yourself market to install
and even harder to remove.
Finally, in response to
homeowner's complaints,
wallcovering has evolved to
a product that is truly easy to
hang, and, more importantly,
easy to remove. The secret is
in the backing or sub layer,
called the substrate. Most
wallcoverings are made with
a paper base, coated or lami-
nated to PVC backings. But,
by processing very long syn-
thetic fibers, which provide
strength and easy removal,
the industry has created a
new substrate. This non-wo-
Sen .papetJs.i pre-pasted, and
no wall preparation is re-
quired. It can be applied
over a painted surface or
even a previously papered
surface with no extra treat-
ment. The new product is
non-vinyl, which means it
can breathe, eliminating the
common cause of mold,
moisture. It is easier to hang,
because no bubbles can be
trapped and the edges won't-
curl. In tests, this new prod-
uct removed so completely
that each strip could actually
be rolled up and hung again.
If a mistake is made, there is
no need to waste the sheet.
Samples were actually
crunched into a ball and
thrown into the corner, only
to be retrieved later and
hung with no wrinkles or
creases.
Lately, the solution to bare
walls has been faux finishes.
These messy professional
treatments often utilize sev-
eral complicated procedures,
usually over several days.
The hype has been that any-
one can do it. The truth is,
they can't. We have all seen
the results when friends so
proudly display their do-it-
yourself art. A more success-
ful solution is to hang a
wallpaper faux finish paint-
ed by an experienced artist.
With this new product, there


are many finishes available;
a room can be papered with
a suede look in an afternoon.
When the homeowner tires
of the faux suede, it removes
in a manner of minutes,
ready to be replaced by pa-
pering with a faux marble or
trendy design.
In children's rooms, a sim-
ple stripe can be hung on the
wall and the border changed
as the child grows. Styrt
with a baby animal border
along the walls at crib
height. As the child grows,
the baby border can be re-
moved quickly and easily,
even saved, and a new bir-
der hung along the lower
wall, close to the floor
where the toddler plays. In a
year or two, remove, aqd re-
place with a border halfway
up the wall, perhaps adding
a shelf above to help keep
some of the clutter at bay.
For a long time, the con-
sumer who rents has been a
neglected segment of the
decorating market. Most
property owners do not al-
low the walls to be papered.
Because the product re-
moves completely, leaving
no residue or backing on the
wall, it can be taken down,
leaving the wall with no
trace of residue or damage.
The renter can even take the
paper to the next residence,
if desired. It's a great way to
personalize a temporary
space.
Begin by going to one of
the manufacturers' Web sites
and look specifically for a
non-woven. These sites cate-
gorize patterns, styles and
the newly released books.
Searching on the Internet
helps to narrow down your
choices before going to the
store to look at the wallpaper
books. One of the better
sites is Chesapeake Wallcov-
erings at chesapeakewall-
coverings.com. This compa-
ny now has three books out
with the new non-woven
backing.
For those who have never
hung wallpaper, it is proba-
bly safer to start with a
small, easily manageable
area. Choose a straight wall,
with no windows or doors to
cut in..The local retailer who
is knowledgeable will direct
you to the new, non-woven
product. Ask for the wall-
covering that hangs in min-
utes and removes in seconds.
Create a refuge in a corner
by planting a comfortable
chair and a table with a read-
ing lamp. Surround the area
with a paper that gives the
look of soft suede or leather,
then anchor the space with a
rug. Decorating with wallpa-
per is an excellent way to in-
dividualize the home, bring-
ing in warmth and texture-to
either a casual, country
home or an elegant formal
home.
