SBoating conditions still dangerous


RISING AND FALLING: Although the rivers in Hamilton County have crested and are now falling, low-ly-
ing areas will hold water for several weeks continuing to make access to some homerns ...I. (Staff Photo)


Local river levels now falling


Although there was more rain-
fall over the North Florida and
South Georgia area last week, the
Suwannee River and Alapaha
River in Hamilton County have
crested. If no more rain falls, the
Suwannee River is predicted to
fall below floodstage (77') by
Sunday, April 17. The Alapaha is
predicted to fall below floodstage
(101') by Monday, April 18.
Boaters are reminded that the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) is en-


forcing a no-wake/idle speed
rule on the Suwannee River from
Branford to Fowlers Bluff, and on
the lower Santa Fe River.
Persons operating all forms of
water craft on all local rivers and
lakes are urged to show consider-
ation for property owners by vol-
untarily maintaining reasonable
speeds, whether no-wake signs
are posted or not.-
Rain-swollen rivers create dan-
gerous conditions for navigation
and for property owners. Wholly


or partially submerged objects
such as trees and stumps, tele-
phone and electrical wires,
docks, and dwellings pose a haz-
ard to boaters.
Vessels traveling above idle
speed pose a threat to private
property along the riverfront and
local lakes. The no-wake rule is
meant to protect homes, docks
and seawalls on or near the river
from additional flood damage.

the disturbing scene on
NW 27th Boulevard in
Jennings off CR 141.
Reid said he immediate-
ly contacted the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement and asked for
the FDLE Crime Lab to be
brought to the scene. "She
told me the vehicle, which
belonged to the family
and stayed at her parent's
house about 100 yards
away, was missing," Reid
said of the boys' mother.
At this point the Sheriff is-
sued an all points bulletin
for Bruce Sanders and the
vehicle. Reid said at about
6 p.m. he received a call
from the Madison County
Sheriff's Office saying
they had found the boy
and the car. Reid said
both were located on Bel-
lville Road in Madison
County where the car had
experienced mechanical
trouble. Bruce Sanders


was taken to the Madison
County Sheriff's Office
where Reid said he went
and interviewed him and
then arrested him on a
second degree murder
charge. Bruce Sanders
was transported to the
Hamilton County Jail
(HCJ) where he was
booked and then trans-
ferred to juvenile deten-
tion in Gainesville be-
cause HCJ cannot hold ju-
veniles, Reid said.
A thorough investiga-
tion was conducted at the
scene by FDLE and the
Hamilton County Sher-
iff's Office before the vic-
tim's body was transport-
ed to the medical examin-
er's office in Jacksonville.
Reid said the medical
examiner has confirmed
that the cause of Billy
Sanders' death was a sin-
gle gunshot wound to the
head. Reid said he be-
lieves his office has recov-
ered the weapon used in

or neglected.
Abuse and neglect are
far more reaching than
many people might imag-
ine. No socioeconomic
group is immune; chil-
dren of all races and eth-
nicity are victims of child
abuse.
The Child Abuse Pre-
vention Project at the Uni-
versity of Florida has been
diligently working in
North Central Florida to
prevent child abuse and
neglect through an effec-
tive home visitation pro-
gram for ,oyer twenty
'j!yearsf"The Project has also
helped .establish Chiid'
Abuse Prevention Task
Forces throughout North


Central Florida. Their pri-
mary goal is to develop
strategies within the com-
munity to prevent child
abuse and neglect by im-
pacting parents and their
parenting practices.
The dream of safe and
stable families can only be
realized by society and in-
dividuals coming togeth-
er, and taking responsibil-
ity. Last year local citi-
zens, parents and profes-


sionals formed a Child
Abuse Prevention Task
Force in Hamilton Coun-
ty. The next meeting of
the Task Force is at noon
on Tuesday, May 10, at
the Hamilton County
Health Department.
During the month of
April, people are encour-
aged to wear or display
blue ribbons in recogni-
tion of the dangers of
child abuse and neglect.

March of Dimes WalkAmerica
Dear Editor:
On Tuesday, April 12, we celebrated a historic milestone
- the 50th anniversary of the announcement that the Salk
polio vaccine was "safe, potent and effective," putting an
end to a disease that crippled and killed generations. The
March of Dimes initiated a partnership between volun-
teers and scientists to battle this disease and put polio be-
hind us.
Following the success of the polio vaccine, the March of
Dimes turned its attention to birth defects and other infant
health problems, including premature birth. Premature
birth is a common, serious and costly problem. Nearly half
a million babies are born prematurely each year. Some
don't survive; many who do have lifelong health prob-
lems.
The March of Dimes major fundraiser, WalkAmerica,
will take place in over 1,100 communities nationwide in
April and May. In Suwannee Valley, WalkAmerica is this
Saturday, April 16, in Lake City. Since it was first held 35
years ago, WalkAmerica has raised more than $1 billion
nationwide to fund innovative programs and cutting-edge
research that have saved millions of babies from death and
disability.
Join WalkAmerica now and be part of the fight against

Homeless drop-in center

now open in Lake City


Catholic Charities an-
notinced the expansion of
their services to include a
homeless drop-in center that
opened March 28. The cen-
ter, named A Hand Up Cen-
ter, is funded by a grant the
charity recently received and
will assist homeless individ-
uals with numerous services.
In addition to the services
Catholic Charities currently
provides, such as assistance
with food and eviction is-
sues, clients who use the
center will have access to a
shower and laundry facility.
The center will have staff on
hand to provide case man-
agement and to assist home-
less individuals with the
completion of paperwork for
benefits for which they are el-
igible. They will be able to
use a telephone and fax for
contact with potential em-
ployers and family members.
Homeless individuals can
also use the address of the
center to receive mail.
According to Suzanne Ed-
wards, director of Catholic
Charities of Columbia Coun-
ty, "We are thrilled to bring
A Hand Up Center to the
Suwannee Valley region to
expand our agency's services
to those who are homeless.


The program seeks to re-
move as many barriers as
possible for each person to be
able to provide for their own
family."
A Hand Up Center is locat-
ed at 262 NW Burk Ave..min
Lake City, directly behind
the Catholic Charities office.
The hours of operation for
the center are Monday
through Friday, 9 a.m. to
noon. The center can be
reached by phone at 386-758-
4263 or by fax at 386-758-
4221.
The Center was developed
as part of the Homeless
Coalition of Suwannee Val-
ley's Continuum of Care
Plan. Through the combined
efforts of United Way of
Suwannee Valley and
Catholic Charities, grant
funding was received
through the Florida Depart-
ment of Children and Fami-
lies.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley is a community im-
pact and fundraising organi-
zation that uses volunteers to
identify unmet community
needs and to alleviate those
needs through initiatives and
the funding of 23 affiliated
health and human service
agencies. United Way of

Harvest Fellowship

Church to start

new building in April


In July of 1992, Rev. Jerry
and Judy Thomason met
with a group of Christians
for Bible study and fellow-
ship. As the group grew,
they felt the need to estab-
lish a new church with Rev.
Thomason as pastor.
In February of 1993, the
group of believers rented
space and equipment in the
old Hamilton County High
School. Thirty-four people
signed the charter member
roll to officially establish
Harvest Fellowship church.
Harvest Fellowship rent-
ed space in the Chandler
Tobacco Warehouse located
at 407 E Hatley St. in Jasper,


in July of 1993. After exten-
sive renovation, they began
meeting in the new space.
During 2000, the church
bought the warehouse they
were using and the one ad-
jacent to it. As the church
grew, they built a new sanc-
tuary and classrooms with-
in the warehouses.
Last year Harvest Fellow-
ship made the decision to
move to a better location
and build a larger facility.
They sold the two ware-
houses to Roger Ratliff with
the understanding they
would be able to continue
to use the buildings until,
the new church was com-

pleted.
The church bought 10
acres on Hwy 129 south of
Jasper and began preparing
plans for the new building.
During services on Dec. 5,
2004, Rev. Thomason pre-
sented the plans for the new
church and the vision of the
church's future in the com-
munity to the congregation.
Following the service, the
congregation met at the
new site to dedicate it to
God and erected a sign des-
ignating it as the future
home of Harvest Fellowship
Church.
The construction draw-
ings will be complete this
month. Construction is
scheduled to start in April
with a tentative completion
date in October.
Harvest Fellowship is
currently located at 407 E.
Hatley St. Sunday morning
services are at 10:30 a.m.
Ministry Night services are
on the second Sunday of the
month at 6 p.m. Fellowship
Night is on the fourth Sun-
day of the month at 6 p.m.

night at 7 p.m. Intercessory
prayer is on Sunday at 10

Saturday at 7 p.m.

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Tom Durrance, Jasper Church of God


Prayer


In this week's article we
are going to focus on
prayer and why we should
pray. A topic so broad can-
not be discussed in totality
in this article. Yet it is antic-
ipated that you the reader
will be given a base to start
from in your consideration
of this most important mat-
ter.
Prayer is defined by Nel-
son's Illustrated Bible Dic-
tionary simply as "commu-
nication with God." Many
born again believers fail to
realize that it is vitally im-
portant to pray or simply
put, to "communicate with
God." It is my opinion that
many will fail or succeed in
their spiritual journey
based on their daily prayer
practice.
We must remember first
and foremost that God is
where we gain our
strength. Ps. 28:7 (KJV)
says "The Lord is my
strength and my shield; my
heart trusted in him, and I
am helped: therefore my
heart greatly rejoiceth; and
with my song will I praise
him."
The viewer of this article
should realize that we can-
not and must not replace
prayer with our good
works. We know from
scripture that service to
others is good; in fact com-
manded. However we
must not get so "busy"
with our service that we
miss spending time with
God. Many individuals
will allow themselves to
become so involved with
their church work, with
their jobs or with various
secular activities that they
will fail to spend quality
time with God.
It is sad to say that in
many homes, God has be-
come the "third wheel"
and no one has time for


Him any more. And we in
the church stand amazed
when we hear of homes we
thought were. Christian
homes breaking apart and
within these same homes
we hear of child abuse and
drug addiction to name
just a few problems. The
question must be asked,
should we as Christians re-
consider our priorities?
Why pray?
Prayer (communication
with God) is imperative be-
cause it is the only way to
receive from God. In Matt.
7:7 (KJV), Jesus said "Ask
and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock and it shall be
opened unto you." Prayer
is asking and receiving;
talking with God. It is talk-
ing to Him in faith and
making our requests and
petitions known to Him. It
is communing with the
only one who can truly de-
liver us from the times at
hand. Prayer places us be-
fore the throne where He
will meet with us to hear
our cries and concerns, a
place where He hears our
praise and worship.
We pray because there is
joy in praying; "Until now
you have asked nothing in
my name. Ask, and you
will receive, that your joy
may be full." (John 16:24
NKJV)
We pray because there is
deliverance when we pray;
"This poor man cried, and
the LORD heard him, and
saved him out of all his
troubles." (Ps. 34:6 KJV)
We pray because we re-
ceive the wealth of God's
wisdom: "If any of you lack
wisdom, let him ask of
God, that giveth to all men
liberally, and upbraideth
not; and it shall be given
him." (as. 1:5 KJV)
We pray because through


prayer God will give reve-
lation: "Call unto me, and I
will answer thee, and shew
thee great and mighty
things, which thou knowest
not." (Jer. 33:3 KJV)
We pray because by
prayer we are healed; "Is
any among you afflicted?
Let him pray. Is any merry?
Let him sing psalms. Is any
sick among you? Let him
call for the elders of the
church; and let them pray
over him, anointing him
with oil in the name of the
Lord: And the prayer of
faith shall save the sick, and
the Lord shall raise him up;
and if he have committed
sins, they shall be forgiven
him." (ames 5:13-15 KJV)
We pray because Paul in
his writings to the Thessa-
lonians instructs us to pray
without ceasing. (I Thes.
5:17 KJV)
Most importantly we
pray because prayer un-
locks the plan of salvation
in our lives: "For whosoev-
er shall call upon the name
of the Lord shall be saved."
(Rom. 10:13 KJV)
From just the few exam-
ples listed above you
should by now know the
significance of prayer and
the impact it can have on
your life. A Christian with-
out prayer is likened unto a
soldier without a gun. For
in the hands of a Christian
prayer is a weapon that is
limitless in power. Without
prayer, a person is likened
unto a buggy without a
horse. For without a horse
the buggy cannot move.
Without prayer you are
never going to move for-
ward in Christ.
It is encumbered upon us
to be a people of prayer
reaching into God's heart
and communicating with
Him daily.
"But rather seek ye the
kingdom of God; and all
these things shall be added
unto you. Fear not, little
flock; for it is your Father's
good pleasure to give you
the kingdom." (Luke 12:31-
32 KJV)
May God richly bless you
as you renew the spirit of
prayer in your life.

HCAODPC LUNCH WITH JUDGE DAVIS

Coalition quarterly meeting; Judge Davis

addresses Coalition during lunch meeting


The Hamilton County
Alcohol and Other Drug
Prevention Coalition
(HCAODPC) held its first
quarter meeting on Janu-
ary 26. The meeting was at-
tended by special guests
Dr. Mary Sutherland,
Florida State University
Anti-Drug Coalition Grant
Advisor, and Jackie Smith,
Aide to United States Rep-
resentative Anders Cren-
shaw.
Coalition members went
to Washington, D.C. earlier
in January and made a re-
quest to Rep. Crenshaw for
a $200,000 special appro-
priation from the legisla-
ture for an After School
Peer Tutoring Program.
The Coalition has re-
ceived letters of commit-
ment from the Hamilton
County School Board and
the Hamilton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners for conditional ap-
proval to use the old high
school gym and band room
for social and sports activi-


ties. The program would
be administered under the
direct supervision of paid
staff and volunteers.
The Coalition held their
Executive Board lunch
meeting at the Shamrock
Restaurant in Jasper on
Wednesday, March 2.
j' Guiet' spekr Jfudge R.B.
Davis presented informa-
tion on the benefits of us-
ing Drug Courts in the
community. There are now
more than 1,600 Drug
Courts across the country
that allow judges to place
non-violent drug offenders
in treatment programs
rather than sentencing
them to prison.
The incarceration of
drug using offenders costs
from $20,000 to $50,000 per
person per year. In con-
trast a comprehensive
drug court system typical-
ly costs from $2,500 to
$4,000 annually for each
offender.
The Drug Court in
Hamilton County would


probably be designed to
handle cases involving
non-violent drug-using of-
fenders through compre-
hensive supervision, drug
testing and treatment ser-
vices provided locally.
For more information or
to join the Coalition contact
Project Director Grace M&-
Donald at 792-9388 or 938-

Department of Health warns of risks to water supply due to storms


Flooding related to
storms can contaminate
the public water supply.
Drinking contaminated
water may cause illness.
People should not assume
that the water in a flood-
affected area is safe to
drink.
If a well has been flood-
ed, it needs to be tested
and disinfected after the
floodwaters recede. Ques-
tions about testing can be
directed to the Hamilton
County Health Depart-
ment in Jasper.
If there is a chance that a
well has been contaminat-
ed, use bottled, boiled or
treated water until the well
has been tested and found
safe.
Do not use, contaminated
water to wash dishes, to
wash and prepare food, to
make ice or while brushing
teeth.
Boiling water kills harm-
ful bacteria and parasites.
Bringing water to a rolling
boil for 1 minute will kill
most organisms.
Water may be treated
with chlorine or iodine
tablets or by mixing 1/8
teaspoon of unscented or-
dinary household chlorine
bleach (5.25 percent sodi-
um hypochlorite) per gal-
lon of water. Mix the solu-
tion thoroughly and let
stand for approximately 30
minutes. This treatment
will not kill parasitic or-
ganisms.
Containers for water
should be rinsed with a
bleach solution before
reusing them. Use water
storage tanks and other
types of containers with
caution. Do not rely on
untested devices for de-
contaminating water.
It is important to disin-
fect both the well and
plumbing with chlorine
bleach to insure that all in-
fectious agents are killed.
All membranes, cartridges
and filters in water treat-
ment devices should be re-
moved and replaced after
the chlorination process is
completed. A licensed well
driller can provide infor-
mation on how to disinfect'
a submersible pump.
Common unscented
laundry bleach can be used
as effectively as a chlorine
disinfectant. If the water is
discolored before chlorina-
tion, run the water until it
is clear for up to 10 min-
utes. Turn off and drain
the hot water heater -
chlorine is not effective in
water above 105 degrees.
Clean the work area
around the top of the well
to avoid adding contami-


nation to the well during
the disinfection process.
Remove grease and miner-
al deposits from the acces-
sible parts of the well head
and flush the outside sur-


faces with 1/2 cup of laun-
dry bleach in five gallons
of water.
Turn off the pump. Re-
move the cap or well plug
on the rubber seal.

low the water to run until
there is a noticeable smell
of chlorine. The toilets may
also be flushed. Water
from outside faucets
should be directed away
from sensitive plants. If
there is no chlorine odor,
re-chlorinate the well.
Turn off all the faucets
and allow the chlorine to
remain in the system for at
least eight hours.
Back wash water soften-
ers, sand filters and iron
removal filters with chlori-
nated water.
Again open all the
faucets and run the water
until there is no chlorine
smell for up to 15 min-
utes.
,The only way to verify
that the water is safe to
drink is to have it tested.
Although chlorine bleach
is effective against mi-
croorganisms, it will not
remove chemical contami-
nation that may have got-
ten into the well. Contact
the Health Department for
sampling instructions to
have the water tested.

On Earth Day teach children


to respect the environment


The problems facing
the planet seem over-
whelming at times. Pollu-
tion, environmental
degradation and disre-
spect for nature are prob-
lems that children
will inherit.
Take a walk
around the block on
Earth Day, Satur-
day, April 22, and
ask children to
search the area for
problems. They -!
might say that there
are too many free-
ways, not enough trees,
too much pollution or a
host of other issues.
After children have
identified problems in the
neighborhood, ask them


to think of laws that
would address the prob-
lems. Have them think
about what would hap-
pen if their laws were en-
acted. Ask them what


would happen if their
laws were ignored. This
will introduce a child to
the process by which so-
ciety functions and they
will learn to respect the


laws that form the foun-
dation of the country.
Encourage children to
take an active stand for
the environment. Help
them write a letter to
their congressman
or to an environ-
mental agency
about the situation
in their neighbor-
hood.
Maybe a child's
efforts won't pay off
'immediately, but it
will cause them to
think about the
planet and the lawmak-
ing process. In time, they
will learn that everyone is
responsible for the envi-
ronment and has the
power to preserve it.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Ah! Sun at last, the sun is
shining bright and we are
hoping for at least a few
days without rain, but
thankfully we do not live
in Denver, Colo. where
they are having so much
snow; we are thankful we
do not need to worry about
that. Enjoy this beautiful
weather.
We did get our streets
paved, 3rd St NW and 13th
Ave., and they are trying to
clean out the drainage
ditches from all the rain.
Thank you for what you
are doing.
Mrs Anson (Edith) John-
son attended the funereal
of her nephew, Perkins Bo-
gan, in Pensacola last
week. Also attending were
her sister and brother-in-
law, Dr. Maurice and Ruth
Lindauer of Valdosta, Ga.,/
and Mr. George and Mari-
on Shiver Hudson of Lake
City. Perkins was the son
of the late Perk and Chris-
tine Shiver Bogan of Pen-
sacola. Mrs. Johnson said
all of the family was able to
attend except one who was
ill.
Judi and Terry Fennell

week, after getting away
for a few days. They en-
joyed a trip to Gatlinburg,
Tenn., a vacation they love
to take when they can.
While there they visited Pi-
geon Forge, Tenn., saw
some shows, enjoyed good
gospel singing and good
food. They saw some snow
on the side of the road but
were glad it didn't snow
while they were there.
They visited with Judi's
cousin, Pam Stephens, in
Griffin, Ga. Pam has been
ill and they were glad to
get to see her.
There are so many sick


folks in our area who are
special to us. Billie Payne
is a patient at North Florida
Regional Hospital in
Gainesville; and Clyde has
had surgery and will be
taking treatments at
Shands in Gainesville.
Their family members have
been staying in Gainesville
to tend to their needs; we
pray that they will soon be
able to be back in Hamilton
County; they are truly
missed.
Our sympathy goes to
Ann Hiers and family in
the death of Mr. Jim Hiers
who has been ill for several
years. He was a long-time
resident of Hamilton
County and will be remem-
bered fondly by many of us
in the area. He was buried
at Sassers Landing.
Mary Lewis passed away
recently. Mary was well-
known and loved by the
community; she was a real
trooper in her fight against
cancer, we had hoped for
her to be with us this week
at the Relay, she has al-
ways been such an inspira-
tion to all of us, but we will
be remembering her. She
was in a wheel chair last
year but made it around
the track twice with her
family, her husband, son
Terry Bennett, her son John
Lewis and his fiancee.
Mary will be missed by all
who knew her.
Dan Johnson will be
missed at Suwannee Valley
Nursing Center. He passed
away last week after living
at the Nursing Center for a
short time, but was well-
known there as he visited
with his wife, who is still a
resident of SVNC.
Hamilton County Sister-
hood met at 7 pm Tuesday,
April 12, at First Baptist
Church, White Springs. Of


course we hope you attend-
ed, we will bring news of it
to you next week in case
you weren't able to attend.

Palm Sunday service, with
the children carrying the
palms, and special music.
Anna Cameron's daugh-
ter Leslie McCauley and
four children came from
Ladson, S.C., to spend East-

They had a good visit and
planned most of their
meals at the church where
they had enough room to
eat and visit.
Anna Cameron and Lin-
da Law spent several days
in different places in South

Fire ant facts


Fire ants are small red or
black ants up to 1/4 inch
long that build large, hard
nests in the ground that
are up to two feet high.
A fire ant colony can
grow to over 100,000
workers in the mound af-
ter just 12 months. The
queen can produce up to
800 eggs every day and
she may live for over sev-
en years.
They feed on vegetables,
bark, insects, seeds,
plants, household food,
nesting birds or small ani-


mals or even clothing. Fire
ants are found in lawns
and gardens, in houses, in
pasture land, in ditches or
anywhere they can build a
mound and have access to
food.
Fire ants will sting peo-
ple or pets who acciden-
tally disturb their nests.
They usually sting on the
feet or legs and the stings
can be very painful and
serious. People react dif-
ferently to the sting. In
rare cases, the sting can be
fatal.

The Banks



Perspective

By Jonathan Banks 4


Welcome back to the
"Banks Perspective." I'm
your host for today,
Jonathan Banks. This
week'Os topics will in-
clude the Late Pope John
Paul II and the late Terri
Schaivo, and the begin-
ning of Prince Charles and
Duchess Camilla. Also I
will present a new and an
old CHE school program. I
hope you are ready to be-
gin the show.
I know everyone has
heard about the death of
Pope John Paul II. He
touched many lives in
America and across the
world. The Pope struggled
during his last days and
suffered through bladder
infections, high fevers,
and loss of consciousness.
He was supported and
cared for by his friends,
personal doctor, and clos-
est church bishops and
cardinals. He died in Vati-
can City, Italy, on April 2,
between 3 and 4 o'clock
eastern time.
Pope John Paul II was
laid to rest at St. Peter's
Basilica. His funeral was
held in St. Peter's Square
on April 8 in Vatican City.
Many bishops and priests
from foreign countries vis-
ited their Pope and paid
their last respects to him
during the funeral.
Also attending the fu-
neral was President Bush
with his wife, First Lady
Laura Bush. Joining them
was former Presidents
George Bush and Bill Clin-
ton who accompanied Sec-
retary of State Condoleez-
za Rice. All of the U.S Rep-
resentatives spoke about
their experiences with the
pope before the funeral.
Pope John Paul II will al-


ways be remembered and
his legacy will live on
throughout the Catholic
Church and the world too.
I think everyone is looking
forward to the election of
the new pope.
The death of Terri Schai-
vo affected many people
in our country and world.
Terri suffered for more
than fifteen years. She was
not able to feed, dress, or
speak by herself.
Terri's parents have sup-
ported her and cared for
her through many ordeals,
but they lost the battle
when the judged ordered
the feeding tube to be re-
moved from their daugh-
ter's body. Terri's hus-
band, Michael Schaivo,
was very controlling about
this matter; but the par-
ents of Terri fought for her
life until the end.
On March 31, Terri
Schaivo died in Pinellas
Park. The parents of Terri
Schaivo suffered more
when the judge ordered
Terri's body to be buried
in a family cemetery in
Pennsylvania, another
wish of Michael Schaivo.
We all know where Terri is
now, God bless her and
may she rest in peace.
The world and the royal
family were shocked
about the engagement of
Prince Charles and Camil-
la Parker Bowles. This re-
lationship began at a party
when they engaged in
friendly talk.
Soon after Prince
Charles enlisted in the
English Navy. While he
was gone Camilla met and
married Andrew Parker
Bowles. Soon Camilla was
with child and Charles be-
came the Godfather.


Then Charles met Diana
and they married after a
number of years of dating.
Almost a year later,
Charles and Diana had a
son, William. A couple of
years later they had anoth-
er son, Henry.
Camilla and Andrew di-
vorced after several years.
The Prince's marriage was
failing as well. Soon after
he began seeing Camilla.
The affair of Camilla and
Prince Charles continued
until the prince and
princess separated.
Then Princess Diana
died in a car accident. The
royal family and the world
mourned her when she
died. Years later Camilla
and Charles announced
their engagement to the


public.
On April 9, friends and
the royal family witnessed
the marriage of Prince
Charles and Camilla Park-
er Bowles. As they said
their vows to God, every-
one clapped and bowed as
they proceeded out the
door of the chapel and
traveled for their honey-
moon. I hope everyone in
the royal family will enjoy
their new member of the
family and continue their
loyal duties.
CHE Junior Beta Club
has been established and
sponsored by teacher
David Law. I think the
Beta Club is a wonderful
opportunity and being a
member I think it is a great
idea that helps kids get in-


volved in the community.
The CHE Jr. Beta Club
president is Megan Snipes
who is a very intelligent
student, and vice presi-
dent Jeffrey Monds who is
a true leader among his
peers. Both officers enjoy
what they do and do a
great job at it. The Jr. Beta
Club members will be
sworn in at an invitation-
only Beta Club induction
on April 19. As we fulfill
our duties we hope every-
one will "let us lead by
leading others."
Central Hamilton Ele-
mentary has its own televi-
sion Morning Show,
"Good Morning CHE."
This show has been spon-
sored by Shelby Hender-
son, the media specialist,


for the past four years. The
show is directed, pro-
duced, and written by stu-
dents. Each student is as-
signed a job and they don't
stop until they complete
their job and the show.
"Good Morning CHE" be-
gins at 7:55 a.m. and ends
at 8:05 a.m. every morn-
ing. This is a great show
and I hope will become
greater every school year.
Okay, everyone that's all
for this week, I'm Jonathan
Banks and I hope you en-
joyed the "Banks Perspec-
tive."
If you have any com-
ments or suggestions
about the "Banks Perspec-
tive" contact me at
evin_05@yahoo.com. Al-
right, see ya next week!

News

As the month of April
rolls along, we are busy
at South Hamilton Ele-
mentary. We are delight-
ed that our students and
staff members had a
wonderful spring break
and came back happy
and healthy. We have six
more weeks of school,
and our regular 2004-
2005 school year will be
completed. We will be
working and busy right
up till the end.
Mrs. Edwards has a
number of Pre-Kinder-
garten students who are
doing some basic reading
and some good hand-
writing. Pre-Kinder-
garten took a trip before
spring break to Silver
Springs. Students, staff
members and parents
had a marvelous trip and
a good time. Many
thanks to Mrs. Darcy
Broadnax, our school me-
dia specialist for driving
the school bus for us.
In Mrs. Williams and
Mrs. Johnson's kinder-
garten class, we welcome
Patrick McCracken (J.J.)
to our class. We are re-
viewing letters and letter
sounds. We are also re-
viewing our numbers
and number concepts.
We are eagerly antici-
pating our wonderful
trip to the Jacksonville
Zoo on Friday, May 13.
Taylor Lee is Student of
the Month of March, who
will wear her honor
necklace through April.
Congratulations Taylor,
we are proud of you.
Taylor was awarded a
number of prizes by
White Springs Police Of-
ficer Tracy Capallia on


By Johnny Bullard
Thursday, April 7. We
are proud of you, Taylor!
First grade is refreshed
from spring break and
ready to gain some more
knowledge before sum-
mer vacation. This week,
we have been working
really hard counting
money. We still need
more practice. Parents,
empty your pockets and
let your child count your
change.
Mrs. Schmid's second
graders came back to
school after spring break
ready to work. The sec-
ond grade class has en-
joyed reading a story
about dinosaurs this
week. Students discussed
the different kinds of di-
nosaurs, and the tracks
they left behind. Each
week we enjoy singing
with Mrs. Jones, our mu-
sic teacher. It is lots of
fun in Music, and we
love it! Thank you, Mrs.
Jones.
Everyone had a won-
derful spring break in
third grade and was hap-
py to see all our friends
back in school. We're en-
joying our unit on Steps
in a Process for reading
and have learned all
about making pifiatas,
paper snakes, and paper
mache. We've also en-
joyed writing our own
directions for making our
favorite snack. One thing
we've learned is it is easy
to leave out steps if you
are not careful and then
your snack will not taste
very good.
Our student of the
week is Ryan Stormant.
Ryan came to our class
late in the year, but he


has fit in well with every-
one. We enjoy his smiling
face and great sense of
humor. Great job, Ryan!
Third grade also enjoyed
a wonderful trip to the
Museum of Natural His-
tory in Gainesville before
spring break. We had
several parents go with
us, and I appreciate their
help. We loved all the
exhibits and learned a lot
about Florida and our
history.
Mrs. Howell's reading
class enjoyed this week's
reading story "Children
of Clay" informing us of
the Pueblo Native Ameri-
can's techniques of mak'
ing pottery.
Happy Birthday to
Vireka Scippio!
Fourth grade welcomes
Khadijah Richburgh and
Vinisha Udell to our
class. We also bid
farewell to Brittany
Cheshire. Fourth grade
had completed our four
week process of compost-
ing planted sunflower
and marigold seeds in
our science study of
plant growth.
Mrs. Daniels' fifth
grade students are read-
ing "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory" this
Week. Next week in So-
cial Studies, we will be
studying World War I.
Sixth grade students in
Mr. Corbett's class had a
good week of working on
many new skills in math
and science. We are
studying the geography
of the earth and how
maps are made. We've
also begun a study on
southeast Asia. We all
enjoyed our spring break,
and we are looking for-
ward to the end of school
and summer vacation.
Congratulations to all
our students who made
the A and A-B Honor
Roll for the third nine
weeks. Students will be
honored with an Honor
Roll Party on Thursday,
April 14, at 1:30 p.m.
Mark your calendars!


Mrs. Mickler wishes to

porting South Hamilton's

ciety. South Hamilton's

tain. Thank you parents

Do you suffer

from a sleep

disorder?
Sleep: We all need it, want it,
crave it, but never seem to get
enough of it. Most sleep re-
searchers say that the average
number of hours a person
needs each day is between 71/2
to 81/2. Yet, most of us fall
short of that number and sur-
vive on much less, which can
make us tired, cranky and irri-
table. Other, more serious con-
sequences related to lack of
sleep include problems with
concentration and memory, be-
havioral, learning or social is-
sues, frequent infections,
blurred vision, and the inability
to tolerate stress.
What's the culprit for lack of
sleep? The most common and
obvious reason is living a hec-
tic lifestyle. Most of us are so
overworked and over-sched-
uled these days that there are
never enough hours in the day
for unwinding, much less
sleeping. Other reasons range
from bringing home a new
-baby, to getting in that last
workout before the gym closes,
to drinking caffeinated or alco-
holic beverages before bed-
time. And let's not forget about
the stressful events or crises we
endure in our lives -- the loss of
a job, the death of a loved one,
a divorce, etc. -- which are
common causes of insomnia, a
type of sleep disorder. Whatev-
er your reasons are for not get-
ting in your full eight hours, the
fact remains that you are sleep
deprived, and sleep deprivation
can cause both a mental and
physical drain on the body if
left unaddressed.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you feel you aren't getting
enough sleep and have any of
the aforementioned symptoms,
keep a log that contains signs
and symptoms and their dura-
tion, situations affecting your
sleep, medications you are tak-
ing, your diet, etc. See your
doctor if symptoms persist --
you may have a sleep disorder.
Sleep disorders are often over-
looked because they have com-
mon symptoms -- snoring,
waking up feeling groggy,
sweaty or with a headache --

that can easily be explained by
other possible factors. If left
unchecked and untreated,
sleep disorders can cause seri-
ous health problems. Treat-
ments for sleep disorders vary
but can include psychological
counseling as well as medica-
tion.
TYPES OF SLEEP
DISORDERS
To familiarize yourself with
what constitutes a sleep disor-
der, here is a rundown of the
more common ones and their
symptoms, courtesy of Sleep-
net.com, an online informa-
tional resource on sleeping.
Sleep Apnea: a breathing
disorder during sleep due to
lack of oxygen. Accompanied
by loud snoring, it consists of
brief periods throughout the
night when breathing actually
stops. There are two types:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (the
most common) is due to an ob-
struction in the throat during
sleep. Bed partners notice
pauses of approximately 10 to
60 seconds between loud
snores.
Central Sleep Apnea is
caused by a delay in the signal
from the brain to the lungs.
With both obstructive and cen-
tral sleep apnea, you must
wake up briefly to breathe,
sometimes hundreds of times
during the night. Usually, there
is no memory of these brief

awakenings.
Insomnia: having difficul-
ty falling asleep, having no
problem falling asleep but dif-
ficulty staying asleep, or wak-
ing up too early. There are
three basic types: Transient in-
somnia (lasting for a few
nights); Short-term insomnia
(two to four weeks of poor
sleep); and Chronic insomnia
(poor sleep that happens most
nights and last a month or
longer). Transient and short-
term insomnia generally occur
in people who are temporarily
experiencing stress, environ-
mental noise, extreme temper-
ature changes, sleep schedule
problems such as those due to
jet lag, and medication side ef-
fects.
Chronic insomnia is more
complex and often results from
a combination of factors, in-
cluding underlying physical or
mental disorders. One of the
most common causes of chron-
ic insomnia is depression.
However, chronic insomnia
may also be due to behavioral
factors, including the misuse of
caffeine, alcohol, or other sub-
stances; disrupted sleep/wake
cycles; and chronic stress.
Narcolepsy: a chronic dis-
order affecting the brain where

fulness takes place, causing an
irresistible need to sleep. Nar-
coleptics can fall asleep while
at work, talking, or driving a
car. These "sleep attacks" can
last from 30 seconds to more
than 30 minutes. Narcolepsy is
caused by hereditary along
with some environmental fac-
tors.
Sleep Bruxism (nocturnal
bruxism): a movement disor-
der characterized by grinding
or clenching of the teeth during
sleep which may cause abnor-
mal wear of the teeth.
Hypersomnia (excessive
sleepiness): an excessively
deep or prolonged major sleep
period that may be associated
with difficulty in waking be-
lieved to be caused by the cen-
tral nervous system. Symp-
toms include long sleep peri-
ods, excessive sleepiness or
excessively deep sleep.
Restless Legs Syndrome
(RLS): a discomfort (crawling,
tingling or prickling sensation)
of the legs, which is relieved
by movement or stimulation of
the legs. Symptoms occur
when riding in a car, watching
TV, reading, sitting (in a movie
theater for example), or by pe-
riods of inactivity -- like when
lying in bed trying to fall
asleep.

nizing the danger presented to
the public by defective vehi-
cle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated with
defects such as bad brakes,
worn tires and defective light-
ing equipment. In addition,
attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the
driver license laws of Florida.
The Patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equip-

Reduce stress and go
gaga over Yoga
Jaime Blanda works long hours as an accountant in New York City. Instead of
vegging out in front of the tube or wolfing down a pint of ice cream to release
stress, she turns
to yoga.
"It's an opportunity to unwind and indulge your body and mind simultaneously,"
Blanda says.
Young and old, male and female, yoga has become the "it" workout. It makes
sense this physical and spiritual workout exercises tl body, clears the mind
and controls stress. Some styles of yoga focus on holding postures for a long time
and others link postures into one flow. Regardless, all styles combine physical
postures called "asanas," breathing exercises called "pranayamas," and meditation
to promote a calm mind and strong body.
Christina Hartman of Washington, D.C., has a stressful job at a nonprofit agency.
But, she finds that yoga relaxes her, even after the craziest of days. "Doing yoga
with a group of people lets me feed off the positive energy of others," Hartman
says. "The effects of that are amazing I feel so open and lifted inside and out."
It's easy to get started. Take a yoga class at your local gym or yoga center. When
choosing a class,
observe it and speak
to the instructor.
Make sure you like
the teacher, the class'
fits your personality
and it's a classroom
that you can get
comfortable in. Once
you've chosen one,
give it a dry run
before committing
since being a
spectator is different
than actually
participating in the
class.
Get gaga over yoga
by educating yourself
on its different styles.
Hatha yoga is a
general term
referring to all the
styles of yoga; each
style has a different
name and emphasis.
Styles vary in their
focus on body
alignment, breathing RELAX YOUR body and mind With one of the many styles of yoga.
rituals and breathing
coordination with postures. The style you choose depends on your psychological
needs and physical abilities.
Ananda A classical and gentle style that seeks to awaken, experience and
control the energies, ananda emphasize breathing and deep relaxation. Those
energies are then used to harmonize the body, mind and emotions.
Anusara This yoga is spiritually inspiring, but grounded in a knowledge of
outer and inner body alignment.
Ashtanga This athletic and intense style has participants jump from one posture
to another to build strength, flexibility and stamina.
Bikrams Show how much you can sweat in this style. The heat is turned up to
90 to 100 F to help soften muscles and ligaments. More than 25 asanas are done
twice, making for an intense workout.
Integral This style combines postures, breath control, prayer, chanting and
meditation into a single approach. It's a series of gentle postures followed by deep
relaxation, a breathing sequence and ending with meditation.
Iyengar Standing is so simple but requires more concentration than you think;
it's harder than you may imagine to keep your body on top of your legs. This style
emphasizes proper alignment of the spine and placement of the hips and feet and
focusing on the individual needs and physical limits of each person.
Kripalu Focus on breathing, alignment and coordinating the two with .this
"yoga of consciousness." Each style features different intensities of the poses,
ranging from gentle to moderate to vigorous.
Kundalini This highly spiritual style involves classic poses, breathing, chanting
and meditation and the
coordination of breath, movement and meditation. It seeks to unify mind and body
as students attain a higher sense of consciousness.
Power This vigorous and athletic style seeks to build energy from its
demanding poses.
Sivananda This style starts with a forceful beginning and offers an overall
moderate workout. It follows a set structure of pranayama, classic asanas and
relaxations.
Svaroopa Yoga Learn different ways of doing familiar poses by beginning at
the tailbone and progressing through each spinal area, promoting healing and
transformation of the body and mind.
Viniyoga The name literally means "an organized course of yoga." Postures are
customized to the physical needs and limits of these student. Seeking to offer a
deep respect to the individual and his body, postures focus on the spine and
breathing.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS APRIL 13-14, 2005, PAGE 11C



When it comes to keeping family connected, women take the lead


She's the granddame of the
family -- the family matri-
arch. Tradition paints her as
the dignified, commanding
and senior female head of the
family. She's the grandmoth-
er whose house we travel to
for roast turkey and pumpkin
pie. She's also the young
mom with a camera in hand
and a toddler slung on her hip
or the baby boomer sister
with a flair for fun and a high-
speed modem. When it comes
to crowning the family matri-
arch, only one quality is
clearly necessary an unde-
niable desire to preserve fam-
ily relationships and keep the
family connected.
Why women?
It would be an injustice to
men to say that they have no
interest in gathering and com-
municating with their extend-
ed family. Nevertheless, there
seems to be something to
those stereotypically female
multi-tasking, emotional
qualities that prompt more
women than men to be the
family relationship caretakers
and organizers. On average,
studies have shown that
women. communicate more
often with family. Women are
also more likely than men to
initiate gatherings.
"Generally, it is true that
women are more interested in
organizing family communi-
cations, reunions and gather-
ings," says Laurence Basiri-
co, Ph.D., professor of sociol-
ogy and interim dean of Inter-
national Programs for Elon
College in North Carolina.
"Despite the growing rate of
two-income households,
women still feel the emotien-
al responsibility of handling
the family stuff. And most
women enjoy it and are good
at it."
According to a poll con-
ducted by Harris Interactive
for Modern Woodmen of
America, a fraternal benefit
rocietv offering financial ser-
Vxies,, 'HtijPmijtm of men


and women at- ,: -.
tend holiday i .
events (93 per- :.
cent); howev- :
er, women are -
more inclined .,
than men to
gather with ex-
tended family
at other times
during the
year. -
"While men
and women
both agree that -
relationships
with extended
family mem- _
bers are im-
portant, the htia
survey shows
that women

She laughs, "He is the one

Their brood of 10 children
and 20 grandchildren gather
at least once a month at the
Kegelman's home to cele-

"These gatherings are real-

Kegelman. "They are very
important to us."
While Amy Anderson of
Boerne, Texas, is not the fam-
ily matriarch, she can see her-
self assuming a more active
role in planning family gath-
erings and communication
activities as the years go by.
The parents of 18-month-old
Benjamin, Anderson and her.
husband Nathan delved head
first into the family reunion
business this past fall. With
her husband's sister, they are
in charge of the 30th annual
reunion of her mother-in-
la',"'s'lanily'n I,,ch typically


- y attracts about
40 family
members and
will take place
in the summer
of 2005.
Anderson
relies on Web
sites such as
www.gather-
ings.info to
generate ideas
and organize
the details.
Rallying the
family
around the
matriarch(s)
Because
families are so
S busy, today's
Sg matriarchs
Must be flexi-
ble and strate-
gically utilize
the talents found among other
members of the family.
Rule 1: Have a plan and
delegate, delegate, delegate
"I couldn't do it alone,"
says Kegelman. "I do a lot of
the cooking, and we usually
host the event at our home,
but my husband, children and
grandchildren all contribute."
It helps to keep the details
simple and predictable. Some
family matriarchs generate a
schedule for rotating the re-
sponsibility of who hosts the
Christmas dinner or reunion
every year. Others create a
standard plan for who pro-
vides what, on the menu for
every gathering. Still others
designate family members as
official photographer or game
planner.
"Each person has one thing
they do best, whether it is a
special dish or game," stress-
es Kegelman. "We have a for-
mat that works well."
Rule 2: Make fun
the priority
Kegelman feels being the
matriarch doesn't mean she
has to be controlling. "I try
not to 'give orders or advice
until asked;" she says. "I got a


lot of that as a young mother
and I remember how I felt.
My children and grandchil-
dren make their own choices
in life. I need to respect that.
That is the key to being re-
spected in return."
Anderson and Kegelman
both acknowledge that while
organization, timelines and
delegation of responsibility is
important, they strive to keep
it all- in the context of fun.
For Anderson, planning the
next family function is the
opportunity to let the creative
juices flow.
The Modern Woodmen
survey indicated that women
are the great communicators
in the family. According to
the results, women are more
inclined to keep on top of
family news and use the
phone, letters and email more
often than men. In fact,
women are using technology
to their benefit for this pur-
pose. Eighty-one percent of
women see email, the Inter-
net, family bulletin boards or
Web sites as ways to stay in
touch with extended family
members as compared to 67
percent of men. Internet
providers' marketing strate-
gies corroborate this finding.
Women are their biggest tar-
get market group in promot-
ing the communication value
of the Internet. Even senior-
aged women have mastered
the technology to use it to
stay in touch with their fami-
lies.
A merry matriarchy
Whether you're the matri-
arch, a matriarch-in-training
or simply a family member
standing able and ready to as-
sist the woman (or women) in
charge, remember to keep the
ultimate goal in mind: Work
together to keep the family
together.
"The food and everything
else is important," concludes
Kegelman. "But the best part
is just having the opportunity
to talk and laugh together."

Dear Classified Guys,
I run a family owned business and
contrary to my first impression, I
hired my son-in-law as the Shipping
Manager for our company. It wasn't
long before his poor performance
started showing. Many of my cus-
tomers were calling to complain of
incorrect orders or late delivery. Now
I find myself in a dilemma. I placed an
ad in the newspaper for his replace-
ment and found a much better appli-
cant. I even had my son-in law
interview the guy hoping he would
get the idea, but that backfired. Now
he thinks he's being promoted. Any
lieas on how to let him know he
should start looking for
another job?
Cash: That depends.
How well is the marriage to your
daughter going?
Carry: To be honest, it sounds like
you took a risk with your son-in-law
from the beginning. Then, placing an
ad in the newspaper and hoping he'd
get the hint when interviewing the
applicant was not a very professional
way to handle the situation.
Cash: If your son-in-law doesn't
realize that he's about to be fired, he
probably has no idea that he's doing a
poor job at your company either.
Before you replace him, you may want

Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


I 4/10/05

to discuss his job performance so he
can understand what he is doing
wrong.
Carry: Considering he's part of your
family, he's certainly deserving of that.
Maybe he can correct his erroneous
shipping methods.
Cash: As the owner of the company,
it's important you set a good manage-
ment example. For starters, you should
be handling your son-in-law as you
would any other employee. Give him
specifics on what's going wrong and
how to improve. Let him know what
you expect from him in his position.
Carry: Put the expectations in writ-
ing so it is clearly understood. That


way if he still doesn't perform the job
functions, it is much easier to discuss in
the future.
Cash: And make sure what happens
at the office stays at the office. Avoid
bringing up his job performance at
home or over a dinner table.
Carry: You may also find from your
conversations that your son-in-law has
talents in departments other than ship-
ping. Find out what his goals are and
maybe you can have him work some-
where else in your company instead of
letting him go.
Cash: However, if he is truly prone
to making mistakes, certainly don't put
him in your accounting department.


Family Matters
Thinking of hiring family into the
business? It's done more often than you
think. You don't have to look far for
examples. Donald Trump hired his chil-
dren into the family real estate business.
Dr. Phil helped his son find ajob in
Hollywood. And names like the
Kennedy's or George Bush are self-
explanatory. Adding family employees
often results in stronger family bonds and
offers dedicated workers or successors.
Stock Up
Wal-Mart, Ford and Motorolla.
Combined they have annual sales
exceeding 400 billion dollars and are
traded daily on the NY Stock Exchange.
However, they have even more in com-
mon. All of them started out as family
owned and are still family run today.
Wal-Mart was started by Sam Walton
and is run today by his son Robson, age
59. Ford Motor Company is on its fourth
generation of family headed by William
Ford Jr. And Motorolla, founded by Paul
Galvin, is now run by his grandson,
Christopher, age 51.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Ship Shape
I work for a small manufacturing
company and for the past few weeks we
have been plagued with shipping prob-
lems. First we shipped a large order to
the wrong location. Then we missed an
important deadline for a brand new cus-
tomer. Worse, we accidentally shipped a
customer's product to his competitor.
So one Monday morning it was nice
to hear the president of the company get
on the PA system and say, "I'd like to
thank everyone. Last week, we shipped
all of our orders with absolutely no
errors."
As the employees cheered, the presi-
dent then added, "And to our Shipping;
Manager, Joe, I'd like to thank you for
being on vacation last week."
(Thanks to Chris H.)

A few tips for


drying up home


moisture problems


It's an enemy many
homeowners continuously
battle. An intruder that can't
be seen or heard but is felt
lurking throughout their
homes... moisture. Homes
with excessive moisture are
susceptible to musty odors,
peeling paint, stains on walls,
damp floors, and
condensation on windows and
cold surfaces. But more
importantly, the health of the
home's occupants is at risk
due to possible exposure to
allergens that can bring about
a variety of ailments.
One of the major causes of
excessive home moisture is a
lack of ventilation.
Homeowners are sealing and
insulating their houses so
tight the natural exchange of
air on each side of the wall is
being eliminated, trapping
any condensation that might
arise from temperature
changes and providing an
ideal breeding ground for
moisture related bacteria.
Consider taking the
following actions so you can
enjoy a well-ventilated, dry,
healthy living environment:
Open windows and doors
when possible to air out your
house.
Use fans and exhaust
vents to circulate air and
reduce condensation. Due to
high levels of water usage,
showers, kitchens and laundry
areas should all be equipped
with outwardly vented
exhaust fans.
Choose building or
remodeling products designed
to regulate moisture. One
such product is Crane
Performance Siding's
CraneBoard Solid Core


Siding. This alternative to
natural wood or fiber cement
exterior siding features the
company's new, patent-
pending SmartTrack
technology, an enhancement
to their time-tested Solid Core
backing. Crane's Solid Core
backing insulation is
breathable -- moisture
evaporates as it passes
through the panel. SmartTrack
channels now add an extra
level of assurance. This
diagonal series of grooves
guide any excess moisture
away through "release-holes"
at the bottom of the panel.
Check the condition of
your roof at least twice a year.
Look for the slightest
punctures, cracks or breaks
that may result in future
problems. Also inspect rain
gutters, downspouts and
extensions for leaks.
Regularly inspect
windows, doors and
foundations for excessive air
infiltration or any water
seepage. Be sure to repair or
replace damaged or worn
caulk, weather stripping,
glazing, window seals or door
seals.
Purchase a dependable
portable dehumidifier with
humidity control. Be sure to
clean the unit regularly to
prevent mold growth.
Taking these simple steps
can help protect your home
from cosmetic moisture
damage, and eliminate an
environment where allergens
can flourish.
For more information or to
find a Crane Performance
Siding Dealer call (800) 366-
8472 or visit
