National Board Certification

Jasper News
Amy Hendry, an English
teacher at Hamilton Coun-
ty High School, received
National Board Certifica-
tion from the National
Board for Professional
Teaching Standards
(NBPTS) in Nov., 2004. She
has since become a mentor
for other teachers seeking
National Board Certifica-
tion.
Hendry studied at the
University of Florida in


Gainesville and the Uni-
versity of South Florida in
Tampa. She holds a Bache-
lor of Arts degree in Eng-
lish: Professional and
Technical Writing. Hendry
has won many awards
during her teaching career
including the Mainstream
Teacher Award, HCHS
Star Teacher Award and
the Coca Cola HCHS
Teacher of the Month
Award.
The NBPTS is based on
five core propositions:
Teachers should be com-


mitted to their students
and learning. They should
know the subjects they
teach and how to teach
those subjects. Teachers
are responsible for manag-
ing and monitoring stu-
dent learning. They should
learn from experience and
they are members of learn-
ing communities.

cation measures a

Companies making prescription


medicine available to more people


New programs are avail-
able that make prescription
medicines available to more
lower and middle income
families and individuals
with no prescription insur-


ance. Programs are avail-
able for free or reduced
price medications for peo-
ple making over $30,000 for
a couple and $24,000 for a
single person.


Sign-up on-going for USDA assistance


Eligible producers may
sign up at the local USDA
Service Center for USDA's
Livestock Assistance Pro-
gram (LAP) and American
Indian Livestock Feed Pro-
gram (AILFP). Sign-up be-
gan March 14.
These programs will pro-
vide relief to livestock pro-
ducers who have suffered
grazing losses in 2003 and
2004 due to drought, severe
weather and related causes,
and have limited safety .net
and risk management tools
available.
The LAP and the AILFP
programs were authorized


by The Military Construc-
tion and Appropriations and
Emergency Hurricane Sup-
plemental Appropriations
Act, 2005 (2005 Act), to pro-
vide disaster assistance for
producers who suffered
losses in 2003 or 2004.
The 2005 Act provides that
producers who reduced the
number of livestock because
of a natural disaster shall not
be penalized for those re-
ductions. If, because of a nat-
ural disaster, a producer
sold eligible livestock that
were placed on grazing land
(LAP) or tribal governed
land (AILFP) on or after Jan.


31, 2003, the producers will
receive compensation for the
entire disaster payment peri-
od. Benefits will be based on
the number of livestock the
producer would have
owned if the disaster had
not occurred. For livestock
that were sold in the course
of routine business, produc-
ers will receive benefits for
those animals only up to the
date of sale.
A producer's grazing land
(LAP) or the tribal governed
land (AILFP) must be locat-
ed in a county designated as

Power wheelchairs


available for seniors


and the disabled


The Senior Wheels USA
Program is offering power
wheelchairs to senior citi-
zens and the permanently
disabled at no cost to the
recipient, if they qualify.
The wheelchairs are pro-
vided to those who can no
longer walk or self-propel
a manual wheelchair, and
who meet the additional
guidelines of the pro-
gram. No deposit is re-
quired.


The program's main
goal is to develop public
awareness that there are
assistance options that al-
low senior citizens and
the permanently disabled
to remain independent in
their own homes. With-
out this awareness and
assistance, the family
may make an unneces-
sary retail purchase on
power mobility equip-
ment or may prematurely


choose a nursing home
for their loved one.
If the patient does not
meet all the requirements
of the program, they may
still receive assistance
through the donation
program. This is made
available by people do-
nating power wheel-
chairs that are no longer
needed.

retarial disaster declaration
on or after Jan. 1, 2003, for a
disaster occurring through
Dec. 31, 2004. Assistance will
not be available in contigu-
ous counties.
A county may meet eligi-
bility requirements for both
2003 and 2004; however, a
producer in that county may
receive benefits for only one
of those calendar years. Pro-
ducers may receive benefits
under both LAP and AILFP
for the same year.
Producers of dairy and
beef cattle, bison, beefalo,
goats, swine, sheep and cer-
tain equine, elk and reindeer
are now eligible to partici-
pate in both programs.
The LAP is a grazing loss
program that will pay eligi-
ble livestock producers for
grazing losses on a per head
basis of eligible livestock. A
producer must have control
of adequate grazing land to
support the eligible livestock
and the producer must pos-
sess beneficial interest in eli-
gible livestock that have
been owned or leased for at
least three, months. During
2003 or 2004, a livestock pro-
ducer must have suffered a
40 percent or greater loss of
grazing production for three
or more consecutive, months,
due to natural disasters.
AILFP will provide reim-
bursement of expenses for
purchases of livestock feed
for producers whose live-
stock were on tribal-gov-
erned land at the time of a


natural disaster. Payments
are made directly to the live-
stock owners and based on
the smaller of either 30 per-
cent of basic feed needs, stat-
ed as the Animal Unit Day
(AUD) for eligible livestock,
or the actual dollar amount
of livestock feed purchases
recorded on receipts.
As in the past, tribal gov-
ernments will request to en-
ter into a government-to-
government contract for ar-
eas meeting the loss criteria.
In addition to meeting other
loss criteria, the tribal gov-
erned land must have had a
loss of grazing production
in excess of 35 percent.
Livestock owners will re-
ceive benefits for the actual
number of livestock that
were present on tribal-gov-
erned land during the disas-
ter payment period in
which supplemental feed
was provided.
Producers may sign up
for these programs at the
USDA Service Center locat-
ed at 1628 NW US Hwy 41
in Jasper. Beginning in
April sign-up may be done
online. To sign up online,
producers must first estab-
lish an e-authentication
identity at the local USDA
, Service .Center.,, ,CuSretly,,
*producers also may sign up
online for USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) Loan
Deficiency Payment Pro-
gram and the Direct and
Counter-cyclical Payment
Program.

NWTF funds prescribed


This spring, deer, wild
turkey and other wildlife
will have a nicer, greener
home on 5,000 acres in
Starke, after Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission fire crews use
helicopters to complete a
controlled bum. The Flori-
da State Chapter of the Na-
tional Wild Turkey Federa-
tion donated more than
$2,150 to fund a controlled
burn project on Camp
Blanding, the Florida Na-
tional Guard's primary
training facility.
During the project, a FWC
helicopter crew will drop
aerial ignition devices, or
plastic spheres the size of
pingpong balls, filled with
flammable chemicals. After


the balls leave the heli-
copter they fall to the
ground and 20 to 30 sec-
onds later start to burn un-
wanted waste vegetation
that chokes out new
growth.
According to Larry Per-
rin, FWC wild turkey pro-
grams coordinator, tradi-
tional methods of pre-
scribed burning, such as
drip torches and ground
crews, are cost prohibitive
on large burns. With the
help of a helicopter a large
burn can be completed in a
short period of time.
Before technicians can
start a prescribed burn con-
ditions have to be near per-
fect. Prescribed burning is
most effective during late


March and early April
when shrubs and saplings
start to bloom. These
months are also the prime
time for spring turkey hunt-
ing and when turkeys are
starting to nest.
A common misconcep-
tion is that prescribed burns
are detrimental to wild
turkey populations because
they burn many wild
turkey nests. However, re-
search shows that most
hens nest somewhere less
brushy than areas selected
for burning. Hens prefer to
nest in grassy, open areas
where they can blend in and
feel safe. They really like to
nest in prescribed burns
that are two or three years
old.

standards. The process in-
volves an extensive series
of performance-based as-
sessments, including stu-
dent work samples, teach-
ing portfolios and thor-
ough analyses of the can-
didates' classroom' teach-
ing and student learning.
It assesses the knowledge
teachers possess and the
actual demonstration of
their skills and profession-
al judgment as applied
daily in the classroom.
National Board Certifi-
cation is voluntary and
open to all people who
have a baccalaureate de-
gree and three years of
classroom experience in
either a public or private
school. It is valid for 10
years, after which a
teacher must seek renew-
al.
Hendry believes that she
is a better teacher because
of her experiences in ap-
plying for certification.


She plans to earn a mas-
ter's degree in literature.
Her desire is to improve
her teaching and her
school. She feels that she
has learned effective
teaching strategies by at-
tending conferences and
training sessions. Accord-
ing to Hendry, if a teacher
is properly educated,
maintains a positive learn-
ing environment and em-
ploys proper strategies to
teach the required stan-
dards of her subject area, it
is inevitable that students
will show learning gains.
Hendry feels that all stu-
dents can learn and that all
students benefit from be-
ing pushed to aim higher.
She thinks that students
should also be held ac-
countable and be active
participants in their own
education teachers
should not be held respon-
sible for those students
who refuse to work. She
believes that positive con-
tact with parents is essen-


tial to building a strong
network between the
home and school it im-
pacts student learning by
helping to foster a rela-
tionship between parent,
student and teacher.
Catherine Akins, ESE
Consultant at HCHS, said
that no child is left behind
in Hendry's class, includ-
ing mainstream special ed-
ucation students. She

doesn't see those students
as a burden but as a chal-
lenge to facilitate them in
the learning atmosphere
as well as teaching her
other students about dif-
ferences.
According to HCHS
Principal Gene Starr,
Hendry's training is hav-
ing a positive impact on
her students and they are
benefiting from the certifi-
cation she has received.
Suezette Wiggins, HCHS
Media Specialist, believes
that Hendry exemplifies
the characteristics that de-
fine a "master teacher."

2,000 years ago

By Vincent Spada
S 2,000 years ago, He was brought before the court
-. The charge was heresy, of a manner and a sort.
SSoon He was found guilty, and the sentence thus was made
And sadly, it was final, and in blood it must be paid.

He was dragged all through the streets. He was beaten and was whipped.
He staggered as He walked, and many times He tripped
Until finally they arrived, at the place of all the dead;
His eyes were wet and crimson, from the thorns around His head.

They drove nails into His wrists. They drove nails into His feet.
They placed Him in the air, this man so kind and sweet.
The sun beat down upon Him. He struggled just for air.
S The world was set to kill Him, for the world just wasn't fair.

At last His time drew near. At last His life ivas spent.
:At last His flame was snuffed, as 6ut His candle went.
He drew His final breath, and to the heavens He then sighed,
and upon that wooden cross, the man called Jesus died.

They brought His body down. They bundled Him in a sheet
And laid Him in a tomb, so quiet and discreet
And the men who called Him master, they wept as they had prayed
For their teacher now was gone, and their futures had so grayed.

But on that blessed Sunday, when Mary visited the tomb,
the rock was rolled away, like a child from awomb
And there, behold, was the splendor, of the Glory of the Lord.
He'd returned from death itself, and all such hearts then soared!

He instructed His apostles to spread His word to the many
So that all may find peace, for there :ere those that hadn't any;
To look each enemy in the eye, to look each stranger in the face,
and to see all men as brothers, to see all as one race.

And then, He thus departed. He rose up from the ground.
He went back to the Father, and in Heaven He was crowned
But He promised to return, one day in all His glory,
to end the grief and tears, and begin a better story.

What Killed Jesus?
(Part 1)


Without a doubt, one
of history's most sensi-
tive issues has been the
matter of who was actu-
ally responsible for the
death of Jesus Christ:
Who killed Jesus? Was it
the Jews? Was it the Ro-
mans? Who was really to
blame? You may recall,
this issue was resurrect-
ed recently when Mel
Gibson released his
blockbuster, "The Pas-
sion of the Christ".
Many Jewish groups
were concerned the
movie would generate
animosity toward Jews
because of its depiction
of certain Jewish reli-
gious leaders and their
role in Jesus' death.
But, it is my opinion
that the answer to the
question of who killed.
Jesus can only truly be
known and understood
when we know the an-
swer to another perti-
nent question, namely:
What killed Jesus? What
was the actual cause of
Jesus' death? Now, I'm
quite confident if we
were to take a survey
concerning this matter,
the consensus would be
that the cause of Jesus'
death was crucifixion.
But is this really what
killed Jesus Christ? Was
He indeed murdered by
being nailed to a cross?
Or, was His death the re-
sult of something far
more significant?
During the time of Je-
sus' life on earth, cruci-
fixion was a very com-
mon form of punishment
used by the Romans. The
certain death of crucifix-
ion was intended to be of
a very slow nature. Con-
trary to popular belief, a
man nailed to a cross did
not die quickly from loss
of blood; instead, most
of the agony associated
with crucifixion came
from the victim's inces-
sant effort for air.
You see, initially,
when the victim's hands
and feet were nailed to
the cross, the arms
would be in a ninety de-
gree angle, parallel with
the body. But as the
cross was hoisted into
the vertical position, the
K


victim's arms would sag
to the sixty-five degree
angle from the weight of
the body. As the victim
hung in this position, it
became very hard to
breath because of the
weight of the body
pulling down upon the
arms and the whole
chest cavity. In order to
remedy this situation,
the victim would use the
nail in his feet as a point
of leverage to push up-
ward, thus relieving the
pressure upon his arms
and chest, thereby en-
abling himself to get a
breath and temporarily
avert death by suffoca-
tion.
Depending upon the
physical strength of a
man, this gruesome
struggle could go on for
days with the victim
pushing up and down
until he finally ran out of
energy and suffocated to
death. Occasionally it
became necessary to
speed up the process. To
accomplish this, the vic-
tim's legs Would be bro-
ken using an iron club
called a crucifragium,
thus preventing the man
from being able to push
up to get air, thereby
hastening his death. It
was truly one of the
most horrible, cruel
forms of torture ever in-
vented by man.
Now, such being the
case, the Bible reveals
the fact that Jesus' death
was unusually rapid; in-
stead of the normal two
to three days, He died in
a matter of hours. Even
the Roman governor,
Pontius Pilate, who sen-
tenced Jesus to death by
crucifixion, was amazed
at how soon He had ex-
pired. Considering this,
it becomes rather obvi-
ous that Jesus' death was
not merely the result of
His being crucified; He
simply died too quickly
for that to be the case.
But if His death was not
the result of crucifixion,
then what caused it? In
next week's article, I'll
tell you. Until then, be
blessed.

next week.)

Mrs. Carter's first grade
class has been reading stories
About dinosaurs. Their Scott
:Foresman Readinig books in-
'troduced the dinosaur unit to
the class. They extended it
throughout their curriculum.
.They have been busy making
dinosaur projects. Some used
the internet to research their
-particular dinosaur. They
"used a variety of materials to
create their dinosaur environ-
inent, such as shoeboxes, play
dough, leaves, rocks, potting
soil, and construction paper.
;The students did an excellent
job. They'also created a col-
lage of "Stegosaurs" using tis-
sue paper. They enjoyed
viewing educational videos
provided by Ms. Zant, media
specialist. The videos were
very informative about the
different species. What an in-
teresting, productive week!

Some kids were pretty hap-
py this past Monday, when
report cards were released. I
personally couldn't wait to
Receive my report card, I was
pretty sure that my grades
stayed "OK" these nine
weeks. Then again, I can
guarantee that some parents
rand their children were not
ecstatic about what they saw
on the report cards. So good
luck to the all in the final nine
weeks in school.
SCHE has been pushing the
limit with the after school ac-
tivities. The school adminis-

Agriculture Literacy Day, re-
tired teachers, Mrs. Patricia
Tyree and Mrs. Sybil Allen,
visited the school to read re-
lated stories. Mrs. Tyree read
the delightful book, "How
Groundhog's Garden Grew",
which told Mrs. McCall's
kindergartners all about veg-
etable planting and growing.
This simple story with pic-
tures as bright as sunshine en-
tertained the children as they
learned how Squirrel .eaches
Little Groundhog the rich re-
wards of gardening all year
long. Students received nice
bookmarks.
Mrs. .Allen read to Mrs.
Driggers' second grade class.
Students were given lima
bean and pumpkin .seeds,
which they wrapped in wet
cotton balls and put in zi-
plock bags. The seeds are al-
ready sprouting! Students
are also studying the author,
Jan Brett. They have learned
that she has a real hedgehog

students, like the newspaper,
basketball, tennis, Junior
Beta, and lots more. I'd like to
thank the teachers for taking
the time out to sponsor these
programs and activities. I'm
also pretty sure that the stu-
dents are enjoying them-
selves too. I hope everything
turns out good for everyone
at Central.
I'm pretty sure everyone is
pleased with the caution light
outside of the Hamilton
County High School
6B gates. I sure hope that
the flashing light has
calmed a lot of people down
while driving. If not they
might want to meet one of the
officers on duty that day at
the school. Please, everyone,
keep it slow and safe.
Farewell to Ms. Claudia
Bailey who has taken a job at
the Suwannee County School
System. Mrs. Bailey was a
great 5th grade teacher at
Central Hamilton Elemen-

Bailey was a great teacher
and had lots of humor.
Everyone at Central will miss
her and wishes her good luck

been busy re-
searching "Fa-

viewed numerous on-line

As spring break draws
near, we are looking for-
ward to several upcoming
events at South Hamilton:
Friday, March 25 Good
Friday Holiday for all
Monday, March 28
through Friday, April 1 -
Spring Break
Monday, April 4 School
resumes
This week Mrs. Edwards
and Mrs. Erixton's PK class
had a visit with Mrs. Mc-
Clain from the Hamilton
County Library. Mrs. Mc-
Clain told us the story about
the leprechaun. After telling
the story, the class complet-
ed an art project. They
made little green lep-
rechaun headdresses. We
always enjoy Mrs. McClain.
We thank her for sharing
her knowledge and skills
with us.
The kindergarten class
welcomes Mrs. Ruby
Williams as their teacher for
the balance of the 2004-2005
school year. Mrs. Williams
taught kindergarten for
many years at South Hamil-
ton until her retirement at
the end of the 2002-2003
school year.
Kindergarten is looking
forward to spring break and
Easter. We have made some
"snappy" Easter baskets.
We wish our former kinder-
garten teacher, Miss Starr
Runyon, all the best in her
future endeavors, and we
wish her a Happy Easter.
Miss Mickler's first grade
has already begun to enjoy
Easter. We have been writ-
ing Easter stories and deco-
rating eggs. The children
have some of their stories to
share with parents. Parents,
I hope you are enjoying
your child's writings. In
reading, we have been re-
viewing long vowel sounds
and contractions.
In math, we have been
working on fractions. Next
week, we will begin a unit
on money. Parents, take the
change out of your pocket
each night and count it with
your child. This is good
practice.
Mrs. Schmid'.s second
grade enjoyed celebrating
St. Patrick's Day this past
Thursday. Our class deco-
rated our bulletin board
with leprechauns and
shamrocks. In reading, stu-
dents read about the Staten
Island Ferry. They learned
about a new way to com-
mute to work each day. In
Math, students worked
with fractions. They contin-
ued to subtract two-three
digit numbers with re-
grouping.
In Mrs. Adams' third
grade class, the leprechauns
have enjoyed a fun unit of

study for third grade this
week. We have enjoyed lis-
tening to many different
stories of people seeking
their pot of gold. We have
written our stories of how
we might trick them into
giving us their pot and how
we would spend it. We also
had fun predicting, graph-
ing, and eating Lucky
Charms. This was a won-
derful way to end our week
of celebrating the Emerald
Isle and the "wee" folk. Our
student of the week is Jamie
Sweat. Jamie is a very
sweet young man, and we
have learned a lot from him
about space and the planets.
Jamie wants to be an astro-
naut or an illustrator when
he grows up. With his love
of these subjects, I have no
doubt he will reach his
goals. Good luck Jamie!!!

Thanks to the soft ground
next to our football field, we
were able to build some in-

ing, we learned many inter-
esting facts about the life of
sea turtles and the dangers
they face on land and in the
sea. Happy belated birth-
day to Brittany Cheshire on
Saturday, March 19. We
wish Brittany many, many
more happy birthdays!!!
In Mr. Daniels' fifth grade
class, students read a book
about a boy who was the
son of a school janitor. The
students really enjoyed the
surprises in this book.
In Mr. Corbett's sixth
grade class, we have been
working on making a sun-
dial for next week. We also
did an experiment that
helped the student under-
stand gravity. We are learn-

ing new concepts in math
that will help our students
next year at the high school.

Happenings 1

By Robert Townsend
White Springs Town Manager


The Wild Azalea Festival
this past Saturday was a
big success. From best esti-
mates the town had ap-
proximately 3,200 visitors.
The Lord gave us good
weather and everyone
seemed to be having a good
time.
I sampled the barbeque
prepared by Jason Thomas
and its was delicious. Mr.
Thomas informed me that
he and his father were in
negotiations to re-open the
Three B's restaurant at
CR136 and 1-75.
Next I tried Mrs. Zelda
Hutcherson's home-made
pound cake, as the old say-
ing goes,"it tastes so good
it would make you slap
your pappy down." What
can I say about Ms. Jeanette
Hutcherson's sweet potato
pies!!! Yum, I purchased
two! Thanks to all the vol-
unteers that worked be-
hind the scenes to make
this years event so success-
ful.
Town Clerk Shirley
Heath attended the Real
Time Community Change
work shop in Jasper on Fri-
day and reported to the
staff that the work shop
was a success.
The town projects are the
Nature Park honoring Mr.
John Graham and the town
wide clean up. I am so
proud that three other local
citizens participated with
projects of their own. Mr.
Lawrence Udell presented
a proposal that will assist
tee'I elderly, Mr. Bernard
Williams' proposal will
continue his work with our
youth providing after
school programs and Mrs.
Kerry Gavronsky's propos-
al will assist in developing
animal awareness. Mrs.
Heath reported that during
the work shop all the par-
ticipants realized that their
individual proposals over-
lap and each program can
benefit the other to accom-


plish success.
I hope these and other
neighborhood programs
help our community to un-
derstand that we all have
different views and opin-
ions that are important and
as a collective, working to-
gether, we can accomplish
miraculous goals. All these
projects will be calling
upon citizens to assist in
what ever manner they can
to make them work for the
betterment of our commu-
nity.
The Department of
Transportation will begin
the resurfacing on CR 136
soon. A part of the project
will include upgrading the
136 bridge over the Suwan-
nee River. Mr. Hutcherson
and I met with DOT repre-
sentatives this week and re-
viewed the plans. The DOT
will be upgrading the
bridge and adding railings
to protect the pedestrian
Walk way across the
bridge and at each en-
trance.
At this month's
Council Meeting the
Town Council re-
viewed and ap-
proved a site and
development plan
for the Potter's
House of Interde-
nominational Global
Ministries of North
Florida, Inc. The
new church will be
constructed on the
property at the inter-
section; of Second
St. and US 41 next 'WILD
to Country Cafe.
This weekend I attended
the grand opening of the
Woodpecker Trail at the
Big Shoals State Park. The
Woodpecker Trail is a 3.4
mile paved multi-use trail,
beginning at the Big Shoals
and ending at the Little
Shoals. The project was
funded by a Department of
Transportation ISTEA
grant which was awarded


to Hamilton County. The
partners of the project
were: the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection, Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry, Suwannee
River Water Management
District, and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, and is
a good example of what
partnerships can accom-
plish. Assistant Park Man-
ager Kevin Patten was the
master of ceremonies and
Commissioner Randy Og-
bur gave the invocation.
Commissioner Ogburn and
Mayor McKire were guest
speakers and told of days
gone by when as children
they played, hunted and
fished on the adjoining
lands. The paved multi-use
trail is within walking dis-
tance of the town and is a
wonderful outdoor experi-
ence.

Easter Sunday morning,
March 27. The gates to the
park will open at 6:15 a.m.,
there will be a carillon con-
cert of Easter selections at
6:45 a.m., and the Easter ser-

To everyone who partici-
pated or helped with the or-
ganization of the fifth annual
Wild Azalea Festival held on
Saturday, March 19, in the
Town of White Springs -


"Here comes Peter Cotton-
tail. Hopping down the Bun-
ny Trail. Hippity, Hoppity,
Easter's on its way."
It is hard to believe that
Easter is here on us -There is
some kind of formula that
determines when Easter
Sunday "falls" on the calen-
dar, because unlike Christ-
mas and Thanksgiving, it is
not the same each year. I be-
lieve Easter "falls" on the
Sunday following the third
full moon after Christmas -
but I may be wrong and, if I
am, perhaps someone will
call me and correct me.
I do wish everyone in our
area a happy and blessed
Easter. In White Springs, we
will celebrate Easter with
our 38th annu-
al Easter
Sunrise
Ser-vice

t h e


thank you. The weather was newly crowned, Miss Aza-


picture perfect and everyone
seemed to have a good time.
One small suggestion for
nekt year move the carnival
and kiddie rides section
down to the recreation field
or somewhere away from
-the crafts area. We need
something for children to do
- but the area needs to re-lo-
cate. Just a suggestion.
Again, many thanks to
everyone who contributed
and participated. We appre-
ciate you.
The Suwannee River Val-
ley Birding Festival group
met at South Hamilton Ele-
mentary School on Saturday
afternoon. We appreciate the
participation of this group in
our Wild Azalea Festival.
Many thanks to Harvey
Campbell, Lake City, of the

Wendy Welch and hus-

from a trip to Scotland. The
-couple traveled to Scotland
to participate in a story-
telling and music festival in
Jack's native land. They re-
ported having a wonderful
time, but that the weather
was cold and gray compared
to north Florida. They

We welcome this couple

lea, for the Town of White
Springs. McKenna is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Je-
remy Thompson, White
Springs. Paternal grandpar-
ents are Rev. and Mrs. Ron
Thompson, White Springs.
Rev. Thompson is pastor of
the First Baptist Church,
White Springs. We are all so
proud of McKenna!!! She
was crowned at the Wild
Azalea Festival on Saturday,
March 19, at the fifth annual
Wild Azalea Festival.
Jace Johnson, son of Rhon-
da Johnson, and maternal
grandson of Earnestine
Johnson, White Springs, was
in town over the weekend
and visited with friends and
family members in the area.
Jace is enlisted in the United
States Air Force and. was
home on leave for a couple
of days. He is presently sta-
tioned at Eglin AFB near Ft.
Walton Beach, Fl. He has
been stationed in Russia for
the past several months
where the weather is really
cold most of the time. I know
that his mother, grandmoth-
er, and all the family mem-
bers were glad to see Jace.
I was glad to see so many
familiar faces in White
Springs for the Wild Azalea
Festival including Mr. and
Mrs. Jimmy Devane, Jen-
nings. Mrs. Devane gave me
a copy of a Brief History of
White Springs that was
printed in 1950. I was so
pleased she remembered me
with this historic treasure. I
know there are probably
several people in our area
who have one, but I didn't,
and I will treasure it.
I was pleased to share a
visit with Gyla Norris and
Cathy Jo Norris- Foster,
Jasper. Gyla and Cathy Jo
are treasured friends, and
my niece would rather visit
With Cathy Jo at Sunsations
in Jasper than "eat when she
is hungry". She loves Cathy
Jo, and we all appreciate her
generosity. She gave a com-
plimentary manicure and
pedicure as a door prize for
the Wild Azalea Festival.
Thank you, Cathy Jo. It is al-
ways great to share a visit
with homefolks, too. Even
though you live in the same
town, you don't often have
an opportunity to visit.
Mike Harris told me that
he and Mikki recently took a
trip to up to New York City
and really enjoyed them-
selves. Mike was enjoying a
visit with daughter, Xene,
Gainesville, and her three
children. I also shared a nice
visit with Walter and Merri
McKenzie and (dog) Haggis,
who doesn't know she is a
dog. It was a beautiful, won-
derful day.
Don't forget about the 17th
annual Tractor and Engine
Show that will take place at

Choose varieties suited to the climate. When in doubt,
All-America Rose Selection winners are good bets.
SPlant roses where they will receive a minimum of five
to six hours of full sun per day. They would like even
more.
Diligently water roses. Soak the entire root zone at least
twice a week in dry summer weather. Avoid frequent
shallow sprinklings, which may encourage fungus.
Once a month, between April and July, apply a bal-
anced granular fertilizer (5-10-5 or 5-10-10). Allow three-
quarters to one cup for each bush, and sprinkle it around
the drip line, not against the stem. In May and June, add
an additional tablespoon of Epsom salts; the magnesium
sulfate will encourage new growth.
Have the soil tested and follow the recommendations
for adjusting its. pH,,pses prefer,-a near-neutral.soil pH,
somewhere between 6.5 and 7.
Deadhead (remove faded blooms) religiously and keep
beds clean.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Happy Easter! Since
Easter is so early this year,
it doesn't seem possible
that it will be Easter week-
end when you read this.
Our prayer is that you and
your friends and loved
ones will have a blessed
Easter. Christ is risen!
An Easter Sunrise service
will be held on the lawn of
First United Methodist
Church in Jasper at 7 a.m.
Easter Sunday, with Rev.
Dale Ames, pastor, deliver-
ing the sermon. A conti-
nental breakfast will be
served following the ser-
vice, in the fellowship hall
of the church. This is al-
ways a meaningful occa-
sion and all are invited to
attend. A great way to start
the celebration of Easter.
On Good Friday, the
"Good Friday Cross Walk"
will begin at noon, March
25, at City Hall, Jasper, and
proceed to the City Park
for a brief prayer service.
This "Walk" has been ob-
served in the past but not
in the past few years. The
Community Good Friday
worship service will be
held in the sanctuary of
First Presbyterian Church,
Jasper, on the evening of
March 25, service starting
at 7 p.m. This service as
well as the Cross Walk, are
sponsored by the Hamilton
County Ministerial Al-
liance; all are invited and
encouraged to attend these
services.
Pam Mitchell Snyder,
Soperton, GA, spent a re-
cent weekend with her par-
ents, Joe and Doris
Mitchell, and brother and
his family, Rex and Karen
Mitchell, Ryan and Patrick.
Having an extra day off


from school, Pam came es-
pecially to attend the base-
ball games. Ryan Mitchell
is JV Coach and Assisstant
Varsity Coach at HCHS.
Patrick Mitchell is on the
High School Varsity base-
ball team. Speaking of the
baseball games, the HCHS
teams, JV and V are play-
ing regularly at home and
away, it is encouraging to
see the great attendance
and support at the games.
Dr. Mickler is still an-
nouncing, does a great job,
and leads in singing "Take
Me Out to the Ball Game"
at stretch time. The fans
have been very supportive
of the teams, even though
it has been very cold at
most of the games, you can
read about the games in the
Jasper news. Pam, a gradu-
ate of HCHS, is a Guidance
Counselor at Treutlen High
School, Soperton; her hus-
band, Ron, is Assisstant
Principal at Montgomery
Middle School; their son,
Brandon is a graduate of
Treutlen High School, at-
tended Georgia Perimeter
School in Atlanta and is
now attending Ogeechee
Technical College. Brandon
will be coming to visit with
the family in Jasper during
spring break.
On Saturday evening
members of the First Unit-
ed Methodist Church,
Jasper, hosted a farewell
party at the home of Wilber
and Dianne Rye, honoring
Virgil and MariF te
Siders, who will be leaving
Jasper soon. This was a
cookout, with hot dogs,
marshmallows and all Lhe
goodies that go together.
The Siders, who have been
active in the community


since arriving in Jasper,
will be leaving Jasper soon,
and will be missed in many
areas of service. Virgil was
very active in the Food Ser-
vice through the Church,
did some carpenter work
(especially with their floats,
etc). Marianne has worked
in the office of the church
and doing the church bul-
letins. They will be missed
in Jasper.
Hiram Vann Mitchell
was here over the weekend
with his parents, Dr. Billy
and Martha Mitchell;
Dawn Mitchell came from
Tallahassee for a visit with
her father, William
Mitchell. They attended
church on Sunday at First
Presbyterian Church,
Jasper, with all the Mitchell
family.
Again let me say how
fortunate I feel to be in
Hamilton County. After a
fall, with a sprained ankle
that needed attention, the
injury caused from an old
problem, Dr. Bembry sent
me for x-rays, then I went
to Suwannee Valley Nurs-
ing Center for physical
therapy with Physical


Therapist, John Palamer, as
it was felt that I should
have therapy. It was decid-
ed that a brace was needed
(this from the previous
problem), and after check-
ing with Baya and learning
that they did not carry the
needed item, they told me
to check with Advantage
Home Medical Equipment
(Martha Butler) and she
was most accommodating.
She volunteered to talk
with Dr. Bembry; it was
necessary to get a prescrip-
tion from him. She took the
catalog by SVNC for John
to show her the brace need-
ed; she took care of getting
the prescription, ordering
and made everything easy
for me so I would not have
to do a lot of running
around. Can you imagine
what I would have had .to
go through had we lived in
a city, or even a larger com-
munity of any kind. Thank
you, everyone in Hamilton
County.
You are invited to attend
the Hamilton County Relay
for Life a unique commu-
nity event that allows indi-
viduals from all walks of


life to join in the fight
against cancer. If you are a
cancer survivor or know of
someone else who is a sur-
vivor, we would like to in-
vite you to begin the Relay
by walking the Survivors'
Victory Lap. Immediately
after the first lap, survivors
and their caregivers will be
given a reception in their
honor. To register in ad-
vance, please call Kim Fen-
neman, Relay Co-chair, at
792-2988. We look forward
to seeing you there -
Hamilton County Relay for
Life, Saturday, April 16, at
the Old High School track,
starting at 5 p.m.
Ralph and Sharon Gay
took Mrs. Lillian Bembry
and Mrs. Elvie Lee Gay to
the Azalea Festival in
White Springs last Satur-
day. Sharon said they all
had a great day, so many
lovely azaleas, streets were
blocked, there were
booths, food, etc. Sharon
came home with azalea
bushes and bird houses.
Mrs. Bembry left our Satur-
day morning breakfast at
H&F excited about the trip,
and Mrs. Gay was able to


go, having spent some time
at SVNC as a result of a fall
and she had been in thera-
py there. She is now stay-
ing with Ralph and Sharon
trying to get back on her
feet, still taking therapy at
SVNC.
A "rumor" has it that a
Super Dollar General Store
is in our future, where the
flea markets are held on the
weekends on US Hwy 41
across from the present
Dollar General. We will
anxiously wait to hear
more about this event. Al-
ways glad to hear of
progress. I am thankful for
the paving of 3rd Street
and 13th Avenue, what a
difference.
First Presbyterian
Church, Jasper, is having
the annual Easter Egg Hunt
at 11 a.m. Saturday, March
26 at the church. Bring
plastic filled Easter eggs
and desserts to share; hot
dogs will be provided;
come hunt and have a good
time.
Rejoice! God bless you all
at this Easter time.

Tips to help women establish
overall good health habits


(MS) Every spring, people revive their New Year's resolutions
long enough to get themselves in shape for summer sports and
swimwear. As national organizations recognize Stress Awareness
Month, we are also encouraged to focus on our bodies for reasons
other than the competitive or aesthetic. But, with so much noise
about improving yourself physically, it's often difficult to remember
that your main goal should be having good health.
Dr. Barbara North, medical director for Instead, Inc., a company
devoted to developing better alternatives for women's health, says
women have distinct
needs when it comes to
attaining and
maintaining good
Health. Dr. North says
S' feminine health is
_s often neglected, but
-AN that it is key to overall
good health. She offers

Oi help ensure it is not
overlooked.
Washing and
washes: Everyday
cleansing is crucial to
feminine hygiene, but
Certain feminine
washes can actually be
Harmful to your health.
Studies have shown
douching can increase
the risk of pelvic
inflammatory disease
and cervical cancer. In
fact, the American
College gof
Obstetricians and
FEMININE HEALTH is an essential part of overall good Gynecologists
health.- ... .. ..
recomniends women
avoid it because i't an hide symptobis of an infection or push the
infection farther up into their reproductive tract.
Preventing infections: Women can contract urinary tract
infections (UTIs) from seemingly harmless sources. Typical culprits
can be bubble baths, infrequent urination, tight clothing or improper
wiping. The best protective measures are drinking plenty of water
and cranberry juice, and keeping clean with mild soap and proper
wiping. It's also important to use the restroom as soon as you need
too waiting too long can be both harmful and painful to your
body.
Managing cycles: For some women, tampons and pads can cause
more problems than they solve. From
irritation caused by fibers or chemicals, to risks of Toxic Shock
Syndrome (TSS), the traditional choices are not always the best
solutions. One option is the Instead Softcup feminine hygiene
product, which eliminates the threat of TSS by collecting, rather
than
absorbing, flow, while also promoting comfort. It's available at
www.softcup.com.
Achieving balance: Taking antibiotics can alter the balance of a
woman's system, often resulting in a yeast infection. When killing
the body's "bad" bacteria, antibiotics suppress the naturally
occurring "good" bacteria that control yeast fungus. Women who
take oral antibiotics or steroids should consult their doctors to
determine the best course of action for continuing treatment.
Women need to know how to achieve and maintain good health
on a daily basis both through nutrition and with feminine
hygiene. Dr. North says that a thorough understanding of feminine
hygiene may be the key to helping more women achieve good health
this spring. ,

In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who
would violate the driver li-

tive means of enforcing the
equipment and driver's, li-
cense laws of Florida while
ensuring the protection of
all motorists.
