$350,000 state funding for

Council on Aging annex
Your Capitol Bureau
By Kalifa Hickinson
A new annex may be constructed adjacent to the senior cen-
ter if the state gives Hamilton County $350,000. The current
senior center located at 1509 S.W. First St. in Jasper can ac-
commodate 40 people. The 2000 census reported that Hamil-
ton County had 1,493 residents 65 and older.
The senior center provides free congregate meals and
home-delivered meals to seniors on Tuesdays, Wednesdays
and Thursdays. Breakfast and lunch are served at the center.
Seniors living in Jennings, White Springs and Jasper can re-
ceive home-delivered frozen lunches. The center provides
more then 1,950 meals per month, according to a document
submitted to the Legislature by Hamilton County.

When Marsanne Petty of Jasper re-

Recently two students at
Hamilton County High
School were recognized for
their exceptional grades,
extra-curricular activities
and community involve-
ment.
Renee Taylor was select-
ed as the Governor's High
School All-Star representa-
tive for Hamilton County.
The program honors high
school juniors for their aca-
demic excellence, leader-


ship qualities and commu-
nity service.
"The Governor's High
School All-Stars are shining
examples of Florida's
bright future," Gov. Jeb
Bush said. "This program
recognizes students for a
job well done and for being
model citizens," added Lt.
Gov. Toni Jennings.
Renee is a member of the
BETA Club and the SGA
(Student Governor Associ-


ation). She is involved in
various community service
activities, especially with
the Westlake Church of
God. She is the grand-

daughter of Riley and Patri-
cia Taylor of Jasper.
The All-Stars visited the
Capitol in Tallahassee, par-
ticipated in a mock senate
session and had lunch at
the Governor's Mansion.
Renee said that the visit
was interesting and she en-


joyed the opportunity to
see the Capitol.
Melissa Daniels was se-
lected as the WCTV Stti-
dent of the Week for the

Hot tempers? Hot temperatures? Let's just play football!
.' .. SPRING TRAINING BEGINS:
""4~~ li Emotions still run high as people discuss
Superintendent of Schools Harry Penning-
ton's decision to relieve Hamilton County
High School football coach Mike APman
of his coaching duties for the remainder of
his contract term. At the school board
meeting on Monday May 9, Pennington
S- confirmed that the supplemental position
of football coach had been posted and
that he had rejected both applicants,
Pittman and Scott Anderson. He also stat-
ed that the position has been posted again
and he is accepting applications. But more
than 50 HCHS students, including one girl,
"" "just want to play football. So they showed
up at the old HCHS football field to begin
spring training after school on Monday. As-
sistant coaches worked with the young
,... .. .. players during the afternoon and will con-
tinue to do so until a new football coach is
:. hired. (Staff Photo}

Annex


Continued From Page 1A

The center provides activi-
ties such as bingo, quilting,
singing and crafts. Screen-
ings for mental and general
health concerns are also pro-
vided. The nine-room center
has six office spaces to ac-
commodate its six staff
members, three restrooms, a
kitchen, dining hall and tele-
vision room. The seniors are
cared for in a small area at
one end of the building ac-
cording to Kanoye Capps,
Center Director.
The center, which is open
Monday through Friday
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., has
been in operation at the same
location since 1989 and has
had no renovations with the
exception of new carpeting


four years ago. Previously
the senior center was housed
in a tobacco warehouse,
Capps said.
If the annex is funded, the
staff of the center said they
hope to be able to accommo-
date more senior citizens as
well as offer more services
and activities to the seniors.
Capps said construction of
the annex would allow the
center to provide seniors
with more classes and allow
space for caregiver training.
"We don't have any place to
do that type of thing," she
said. According to Capps the
space is so limited that al-
though there is a kiln for the
seniors' use, there is no place
to put it and it has to stay in
storage.
"The seniors like to dance,


and we don't have anywhere
to dance; we have no facili-
ties for distance learning;
[and] we don't have the
room or facilities to offer
support groups for care-
givers," Capps said.
Steve Larson, Legislative
aide to Sen. Nancy Argen-
ziano, R-Crystal River, said
that it is still too early to tell if
the request for the annex will
get funded, and the request
had to pass "several stops"
before a decision is made.
"This senior center is the only
outreach the senior citizens
have," Former County Coordi-
nator Mike Williams said.
The Legislature was
scheduled to complete the
state's 2005-2006 budget by
May 6, when its Regular Ses-
sion was set to end.

an unauthorized person

According to their web-

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER: The halls of the Hamilton County Courthouse became
hallowed ground last Thursday on the National Day of Prayer as people of different faiths
gathered to pray on behalf of the nation and those in leadership. The National Day of
Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United
States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The observance of
the National Day of Prayer is founded on the constitutional rights of freedom of speech
and freedom of religion and can be celebrated by all Americans. (Staff Photo)

Thank you, JROTC
Thank you to Lt. Col. Davis
and MSgt. Griggs, of the
Hamilton County Air Force
Junior ROTC program, for so
many reasons.
Four years ago, a young
man entered the program
unsure of what he wanted to
do with his life, no particular
goals in mind and a bit shy.
Thanks to the two of you he
has developed leadership
skills and self-discipline. He
was encouraged to do well
both in and out of school. He
traveled to Tallahassee last
summer to serve as Hamilton
County's delegate to the
American Legion Boys' State,
thanks to your nomination.
In October, at no expense
to him, you flew him to Texas
.because of your belief in him.
He was one of 6,000 students
out of 20,000 applicants to be
invited to participate in
Texas A&M's Corp of
Cadets, Junior Cadet
Achievement Program.
Two and a half years earli-
er, you sent another cadet to
South Carolina. Both of these
cadets came home excited,
motivated, and filled with
plans for the future. The
cadet sent to South Carolina
was Ferres Lumpkin, now
studying at the Citadel. The
cadet sent to Texas was Greg
Plemmons, who is now
preparing to attend Texas
A&M and be a member of
the Corps of Cadets next fall.
Congratulations to both!
And congratulations to the
two of you Lt.Col Davis and
MSgt. Griggs. Your dedica-
tion to directing and mentor-


ing our young people shows
their successes. Our appreci-
ation of your efforts too often
goes unspoken. You've had
to fight every step of the way
against those who don't fully
understand or appreciate the
value and importance of
AFJROTC. You may some-
times wonder if the uphill
battle is worth it. It is! More
than can be stated here.
We thank you for all your
efforts and time, for provid-
ing color guards for each and
every one of the county's
public events, from Veteran's
Day services, to parades, to
award ceremonies and for
giving up time with your
families to take our children
to out of town drill meets and
military base tours. And
most of all we thank you for
showing our children there's
a whole other world out
there, with endless opportu-
nities, if they'll only work
hard and show themselves
worthy.
To the residents of Hamil-
ton County, the next time
you hear about a school ad-

ministrator not supporting
this fine organization and the
two dedicated instructors,
speak up for them. Because
AFJROTC and its benefits are
available to any student who
is willing to work hard,
study, give of their time, and
do the right thing.
Thank you again to Lt. Col.
Davis and MSgt. Griggs. You
are an asset to both the school
and the community.
Barbara Plemmons and
family

The 2004 hurricane season
imposed a tremendous per-
sonal and economic burden
on Florida and its residents.
Although the 2004 season is
behind us, the 2005 hurricane
season will officially began
June 1 and extends through
November 30.
This past season, Florida's
electric, water, wastewater
and telecommunications
companies were challenged
to restore services to mil-
lions of residents as quickly
as possible which, in some
cases, meant rebuilding
large segments of their infra-
structure. There is no way to
predict what the 2005 hurri-
cane season will bring, but
history has taught us that
preparation is essential.
Some suggestions follow
that may ease the burden
somewhat should Florida
experience hurricane land-
fall this season:
In the event of a loss of
power call your electric utili-


ty to report the outage once.
Don't jam a utility's switch-
board with repeated calls,
every few minutes or hours
until service is restored.
Be patient. Each county's
emergency management
agency has established pri-
orities for restoration. Once
repairs to the electric system
are complete, critical com-
munity services such as po-
lice, fire, and rescue, and
hospitals usually are among
the first to have power re-
stored.
Be prepared. Have a sup-
ply of flashlights, batteries,
candles, oil lamps or what-
ever else you may need to
provide illumination.
Portable generators may be
an option for some.
In the event water and
wastewater service is com-
promised or disabled is
again, be prepared. Have
sufficient clean drinking wa-
ter on hand prior to the
storm season. Fill the bath-


tub when warnings of an ap-
proaching storm are broad-
cast. For drinking purposes,
assume one gallon per day
per person. In the aftermath
of a storm, listen for boil-wa-
ter alerts.
In the event phone service
is lost, try having a landline
phone with a cord handset
may continue to operate be-
cause the small amount of
electricity needed to power
the device travels down the
phone line.
Before a storm strikes, con-
tact an out-of-state relative
or friend to have them serve
as the "family contact" Pro-
vide the family contact with
a list of your friends and
family members..
In the event an evacuation
order is issued, the above
suggestions become moot
and residents should be pre-
pared to leave their homes.
Again, preparation is the
key.
Know the evacuation


route for your area and keep
your car fueled up in case an
evacuation is ordered. Board
up windows or protect them
with storm shutters or tape.
Have a ready supply of
cash on hand. Familiarize
yourself with your evacua-
tion zone and the nearest-
evacuation center.
If someone in your home
is dependent upon electric-
powered, life-sustaining
medical equipment, check
with your utility on backup
facilities well in advance.
Gather important papers
together. Make sure life,
health, flood and home in-
surance are up to date; keep
paperwork in a safe, water-
proof location.
Bring in outdoor objects
such as lawn furniture, toys
and garden tools; anchor ob-
jects that cannot be brought
inside.
Avoid flooded roads and
watch for washed-out
bridges.


Governor Bush signs new self-defense law


Gov. Jeb Bush recently
signed Florida's "Castle
Doctrine" (SB-436) into law.
Sponsored by Sen. Durell
Peaden and Rep. Dennis
Baxley, the bill unanimously
passed the Senate and over-
whelmingly passed in the
House, 94-20. Prior to sign-
ing the National Rifle Asso-
ciation (NRA) supported
bill, Gov. Bush stated, "It's a
good, commonsense, anti-
crime issue."

Spiritual

Guidance


By Charles A. Pettis Jasper Assembly of God


We have been praying
and studying in the
church for almost a year
now, on Proverbs 18:21:
"Death and life are in the
power of the tongue: and
they that love it shall eat
the fruit there of." We
would invite you to study
on this scripture.
In Matthew 12:32-37,
Christ say's that a man's
words expose his heart,
the kind of man he is. A
man's words expose one


of these things about him;
that he has the heart of a
viper, that he has the
heart of an evil man; it
takes the tongue to speak
words; the idea is that
words come out of an
overflowing heart: "out of
the abundance of the heart
the mouth
speaketh".(KJV)
A person's words ex-
pose his mind, what he
thinks; pure or impure
thoughts, dirty or clean

Hello, it's Jonathan
Banks back again with the
Banks Perspective. This
week's topics were in-
spired by conversations
among my classmates and
my teacher. The interesting
conversation was about the
dangers of TV and would
they as parents let their
child watch some of the TV
shows in our time. Al-
though I didn't participate
in this debate, I did listen;
so let's see how interesting
these topics really are.
Today TV is very infor-
mal and sometimes very
dangerous too. TV shows*
are very graphic today and
can influence the mind of
kids and even adults some-
times. Numerous shows,
such as Law & Order and
ER, are very graphic. Most
of the shows on TV consist
of shooting, killing, blood,
and to be truthful, even
sex.
TV Channels that kids
watch include all these
things, such as MTV, BET,
FOX, NBC, ABC, and even
Cartoon Network. Cartoon
Network, a kids' channel,
shows graphic scenes, and
the characters speak pro-
fanity.
There is a show on ABC
called Desperate House-
wives that depicts affairs,
scandals, and numerous
occasions of intimate be-
havior. Also the show on
NBC, Law & Order, dis-
plays killing and sexual
abuse against adults and
children. These shows can
affect children and adults.
Watching these types of
shows as young adults can
seriously affect the mind.
Kids and teens today are
deeply influence by their
peers with crazy ideas;
their minds are maturing
fast, and in strange ways.
All TV does is makes the
ideas crazier and more re-
alistic.
I, as a preteen, know how
peers and TV can affect
your mind, how you feel,
what you think, and how
you think about things in
life.
Another thing TV does is
shows the human race how
to kill. TV shows the way
killers murder their vic-
tims, and their plans in the
killers mind, which are
sometimes successful. It
makes the person in the
real world think, "Okay,
maybe if I try this I won't
fail to kill whom ever I
choose to kill." It doesn't
leave a good impression in
the mind of a person
whether a child or an
adult.
Don't get me wrong, I as
an average child love TV.
To me it's great, the pro-
grams show me what to ex-
pect in life, but then again
some shows just go over
board and shouldn't be
displayed on certain chan-
nels. Although TV is very
informational, it may
sometimes inform us on


the wrong things.
Okay now the question,
"Would you as a parent let
your child watch such
shows?" Many parents in
the United States don't
pay attention to what their
kids watch and hear on TV


THE BANKS

PERSPECTIVE

By Jonathan Banks A -


or in the media. I've been
to many homes where kids
watch a kids' show and


turn to a channel where
their age is inappropriate
for the graphics and the


improper language used
by the characters.
If I were a parent, and
when I possibly become a
parent, I'd let my child
watch shows like the O.C.,
but they'd have to be a cer-
tain age. Even I get a little

scared by the fictional sto-
ries produced by Law &
Order, for example, if they
present a case on abduc-
tion or child molestation.
Those cases are scary, be-
cause I think, "Okay, this
could happen whether I
fight or not; it could hap-
pen anytime, any day." It
could also happen to any
child and some parents
don't prepare their chil-
dren for such things.
Some of my classmates
agree with me and some
disagree as well up to a
certain point. Some of
them think that as a parent
they wouldn't let their
child watch certain shows
that present graphics and
inappropriate material.
Then again, if I'm not mis-
taken some of my class-
mates think watching cer-
tain shows will prepare
their kids for what's in life
and give them an aware-
ness for what can happen
to them during their life.
Neither the parents, nor I
can put all the blame on the
TV, its channels, and the
shows.
We as children and the
parents have the power
and responsibility of what
TV shows the child views.
It's mainly the parent or
guardian who holds the
power of what the child
watches on television. The
parents blame the presen-
tation and its producers,
when they should be
putting the fault on them-
selves for not doing their
jobs as parents and moni-
toring what their children
watch.
In out time and with the
maturity of the kids in my
generation it is important
and vital that we monitor
our kids, listen to our kids,
and pay attention to what
they see, read, and hear.
For those who are parents,
you don't know everything
that happens in the world
and in your children's lives.
Well, that's it for today,
I'm Jonathan Banks, and
this was the Banks Per-
spective. I hope you en-
joyed my article but if you
didn't you can email me
your comments and sug-
gestions at jebanksl5@hot-
mail.com. Thanks and God
Bless you all.

Trojans advance

District Baseball Tournament

Zamora tosses two-hitter

Jasper 15 Bell 0


Terry Hedgespeth
Sports Reporter

Ignacio Zamora tossed a
two-hitter and struck out
10 batters leading Jasper to
a district quarterfinal win
over Bell 15-0.
Jasper only led 1-0 after
two innings with leadoff
hitter Pablo Garcia reach-
ing third base with a triple,
and would score on the RBI
hit by Jamie Garcia.
To begin the bottom of
the third inning, Coach Ea-
son pulled his players off to
the side to put a little fire in
them. It worked! The Tro-
jans sent 13 batters to the
plate with 12 of them scor-


ing.
Leading the hitters was
Pablo Garcia going 3-4
with a triple and three
RBIs, one RBI sac fly in the
third inning for the final
run, while scoring two
runs.
Other hitters for the
game: Kaleb Windham 1-3
with one RBI, scored a run
and stole two bases. Jaime
Garcia went 1-3 with an
RBI and a walk. Austin
Gaver was 1-3 with a stolen
base and scored a run. Kent
Scaff was 1-3 with an RBI
and scored two runs.
Patrick Mitchell was 1-2
with three RBIs and scored
a run.
The defensive gem of the


game came in the fourth in-
ning after the Bulldogs had
their second hit of the
game. Scaff threw a perfect
strike to home plate giving
senior catcher Garcia plen-
ty of time to get the ad-
vancing runner at home
and keep the shutout alive.
Other nice defensive
plays were turned in by
Daniel Deas in the second
inning fielding a grounder
deep in the hole to narrow-
ly get the runner at first,
and in the second inning,
Pablo Garcia made a great
play of a tough fly ball. To
end the game, Zamora took
care of business himself
striking out all three batters
he faced in the final inning.


The 2005 District Runner-ups, The Jasper Trojans. (not in order) Pablo Garcia, Kaleb Windham,
Jamie Garcia, Austin Gaver, Daniel Deas, Kent Scaff, Igmio Zamora, Eddie Battles, Patrick Mitchell,
Derrick Windham and Pablo Lacquavis.


Zamora took the first round win over Bell only allowing one hit.

Trojans Advance to Regionals

Gaver Shuts down Bucs 5-2


Jasper took on Branford
in the district semi-final
round after the Bucs ad-
vanced with a shocking 11-
4 win over Trenton. Jasper
knew they were facing a
very strong offensive team,
but was hoping the de-
fense would step it up a
notch, and indeed the de-
fense did just that turning


three key double plays,
and used outstanding one-
hit pitching from Gaver
that included four key
strikeouts to beat Branford
5-2.
Deas took the mound to
start the ballgame and did
a nice job of striking out
four Buccaneers over the
first two innings to keep


the Trojans tied at 2-2.
Jasper took a 2-1 lead af-
ter the first inning with
Windham and Jaimie Gar-
cia drawing walks before
Gaver loaded the bases
with a solid hit. Deas
would draw an RBI walk
before Zamora scored an
RBI sac fly for the second
run of the inning.


': ". ", .,' '- "' .- ,

Pablo Garcia has to be considered one of the best leadoff hitters in the area. He is hitting over 560
and always seems to find a way to help the Trojans.


Jasper would get six hits for
the game with Pablo Garcia
(double), Windahm with a
stolen base and a run, Gaver,


Deas with a double, scored a
run and an RBI, Zamora with
an RBI sac fly, and Lacquavis
with a run scored doing the


damage. The other run
scored belonged to Jaimie
Garcia after reaching on a
walk in the first inning.


-- --r F





Zamora has been getting key hits for the Trojans all year. Against Branford, he had a hit and a sac
fly for two huge RBls, and also scored a run.


Gaver came into the
game in the third inning
and completely shut the
door on the Bucs facing
the minimum batters with
his defense turning two
key double plays follow-
ing the Bucs' only hit and
the only walk issued by
lGbUver in the sixth inning.
Gaver would actually start


the double play in the
sixth.
The Trojans took the
lead in the second inning
after a hit by Lacquavis re-
sulted in a run following a
Bucs error.
Jasper would finish the
scoring in the fourth in-
ning with two runs after
Deas squeezed out a one-


out double, and scored af-
ter a RBI hit by Zamora. A
Bucs error allowed Zamo-
ra to score for a 5-2 Tro-
jans advantage.
The key inning was the
second inning with Bran-
ford loading the bases.
Gaver came into the game
and got a grounder result-
ing in a double play.


Gaver did a great job getting the Trojans into the district championship game shutting down Bran-
ford.

2005 District Runner-ups

Hamilton County Trojans


The Trojans were look-
ing at a district champi-
onship leading Mayo 2-0
until the sixth inning. Deas
tossed a five hitter with
only one walk for the game
striking out five batters,
but the walk and two of
those hits came in the sixth
inning with both being
homeruns for the differ-
ence in the ballgame.
The game was scoreless
until the fifth inning. Deas
would give up his first hit
in the third after his infield
of Gaver at third base,
Windham at second and


[ayo 3 Jasper
Pablo Garcia was sharp.
He would end the scoring
threat with a strikeout. An-
other threat was put down
after a great catch by first
baseman Zamora ended
the fourth inning.
Jasper scored both their
runs in the fifth inning fol-
lowing a leadoff walk to
Deas and a Hornets error
allowing Battles to reach,
scoring Zamora. Battles
would score as a result of a
passed ball and the Trojans
appeared ready to take the
crown with a 1-2-3 fifth in-
ning defensively.


The Trojans managed
only two hits for the game
with Battles and Scaff be-
ing credited with those
hits. Battles and Zamora
would score the only runs
of the game for the Trojans.
Despite the loss, the Tro-
jans will advance to the
first round of the regional
tournament in Ocala
against the third ranked
team in the state, Trinity
Catholic. The Celtics are
22-4 on the season after
winning their district
crown over PK Young 11-
4.

White Springs








By Johnny Bullard


It is the time of year in
the Suwannee River Valley
when we are on the "cusp"
of our summer. The esti-
mated highs by the end of
the week will be close to 90
degrees so get those fans
and summer clothes ready
cause hot weather "is a
coming We have been
blessed with enough rain
this spring that the wild-
flowers, phlox and brown-
eyed Susans, along the
roadsides and in fields are
absolutely beautiful.
Beginnings, commence-
ment, congratulations to
the 2005 Senior Class of
Hamilton County High
School. I wish all our Se-
niors the best for a happy
future. Commencement
will be held at the new
HCHS stadium, weather
permitting on Friday, May
13, at 8 p.m. Spray yourself
with insect repellent and
wear something cool.
Our deepest heartfelt
sympathy is extended to
Kathy Combass, secretary
at Central Hamilton Ele-
mentary, and her family on
the loss of her father, Rev.
Robert Austin Kelley Sr. of
Mayo. A decorated war
hero of the Korean Con-
flict, he was severely
wounded in Korea, where
he lost one leg and later, as
a result of his injuries, had
the other leg removed. His
physical loss was, to him,
in no way a disability. He
ministered faithfully to
thousands in our North
Florida area in Southern


Baptist churches and, later,
in over 18 nursing home
facilities. A humble man,
he was a servant of God
who was always lifting the
Savior "up" and not edify-
ing himself in any shape,
form or fashion. He was an
inspiration to many in our
area, including me. I know
that our loss here on earth
is truly heaven's gain. I
have no doubt that when
he entered the portals of
glory, he heard those
words from the lips of our
Savior that we, as follow-
ers of Christ, all long to
hear one day, "Well done,
good and faithful servant."
Happy belated birthday
wishes go out to the Hall
twins, Cooper and
Cameron, who celebrated
their eleventh birthday on
Friday, May 6. They are the
sons of Brad and Robin
Hall, White Springs, and
are honor roll students at
SHE. Their parents hosted
a "sleep over" for the boys
and Thomas Patton, also a
fifth grader at SHE, son of
Kevin and Tina Patton.
Thomas will be leaving
here soon, as his father, the
present assistant park
manager at the Foster Cen-
ter will be assuming the
management of a park in
west Florida. His birthday
is in June; since he won't
be here then, the twins
shared their birthday cele-
bration with him. The boys
are "down the road"
neighbors from each other,
classmates and close


friends.
The Telford Hotel was
"chock a block" on Sun-
day, May 9. We took our
mother there for lunch and
visited with area friends.
Gloria Hunter's family
were there to celebrate
Mother's Day. We also
shared a visit with Mr. and
Mrs. John Camp of Jasper,
and their daughter Betty
Conine of Kennesaw, GA.
Nick and Cathy Lyras al-
ways do a wonderful job
directing everyone at the
Telford, and, as usual, chef
Jim King, prepared a won-
derful spread.
, Rhett Bullard, White
Springs, represented
Hamilton County at the
state of Florida's election
for a Democratic Party
Chairperson. The state
meeting was held in Orlan-
do. While there, he attend-
ed a dinner hosted by the
Orange County Democrat-
ic Party. He had the oppor-
tunity to meet Jim Davis,
congressman from the
Tampa area, who is a De-
mocratic gubernatorial
candidate and will be "run-
ning" in the 2006 primary.
Parents, please don't for-
get the last day of school
will be Friday, May 20. We
have early dismissal at
12:30 p.m. and report cards
will go home.
Dorothy Bryant of White
Springs, reported that she
had a number of visitors on
Mother's Day including
her son Sam, and all her
grandchildren, and sister-
in-law, Yvonne Bryant. She
had a wonderful day, full
of good food, laughter, and
fellowship.
The 53rd annual Florida
Folk Festival will be held
over Memorial Day week-
end, May 27 through 29, at
the Stephen Foster Center.
This year's feature enter-
tainer will be Emmy Lou
Harris, who will perform


on Saturday, May 28,
around 7 p.m. For more in-
formation regarding the
Folk Festival, go "on-line"
to floridafolkfestival.com
or call the Nature and Her-
itage Tourism Center at
397-4461.
Betty Barnes held the
grand opening of her up-
holstery business, Betty's
Upholstery, on Saturday,
May 8. It is located in the
old Town Hall, Hamilton
Street. We wish Mrs.
Barnes all the best in her
new business located in
White Springs.
Aubrey Deen of Lake
City, former Hamilton
County resident and Su-
perintendent of the Hamil-
ton Correctional Center for
a number of years passed
away on Saturday, May 7.
He was a member of First
Baptist Church of White
Springs. To his wife
Shirley, and all the family,
we love you, and you are
in our prayers. A remark-
able gentleman with a
good personality and
"winning" way, he will be
missed by many in our
area, including me.
Perry is no longer with
us at the Munchie's Food
Store in White Springs. We
will miss him, as he did so
much for our school and
our community. We under-
stand that Perry is now
working at a store in
Jasper. He was married re-
cently in India, and we
wish he and his new wife
well.
Please remember the fol-
lowing in prayer: Ben Reg-

To all the mothers out
there, we dedicate this edi-
tion of our South Hamilton
News, and we wish you all
a very Happy Mother's
Day this past Sunday. Here
is a little poem written in
1915 by Howard Johnson,
and this is for all our spe-
cial mothers:
"M" is for the million
things she gave me, "O"
means only that she's
growing old, "T" is for the
tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of
purest gold; "E" is for her
eyes with love-light shin-
ing, "R" means right, and
right she'll always be, put
them all together, they spell
"MOTHER", a word that
means the world to me.
In Pre-K, our class recent-
ly received a new computer
from Mrs. Paula Williams,
our District Pre-K Coordi-
nator. We are enjoying
"Hooked on Phonics," and

ters and Numbers". There
are so many fun activities.
Pre-K is busy learning
more about letter sounds
and how they are put to-
gether to make words. We
are experiencing matters
with numbers and how
they relate to everyday life.

Medicare changes effective Jan. 1, 2006


Changes are coming to
Medicare and all eligible
persons will be affected,
Most people are already
aware that the cost and the
co-pay went up in 2004.
The biggest change starts
Jan. 1, 2006, when the
Medicare Prescription Drug
Benefit comes into effect.
This will be called Part D
and will be administered by


private companies. There
will be a cost for Part D, esti-
mated to be about $37 per
month. Part D will pay for
prescription medicine,
something that Medicare
has not paid for in the past.
Anyone having the
Medicare Approved Drug
Discount card will find that
the card ends Dec. 31, 2005.
Those having the $600 credit


should be sure to fill any
prescriptions using the bal-
ance remaining on the card.
It will be forfeited if not used
by Jan. 1.
The Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services
(CMS) and the Social Securi-
ty Administration (SSA) will
start mailings in May to in-
form people about the pro-
gram.


Persons on both Medicare
and Medicaid will be auto-
matically enrolled in Part D.
They must be extremely
watchful of the literature
and cards that come in the
mail. The current Medicaid
gold card will not work for
these people to buy medi-
cine after December. They
must use the Part D card.
For lower income persons
that do not qualify for Med-
icaid, there are subsidies
available but they must ap-
ply for them. Again, both
CMS and SSA will send out
mailings on this.
The Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram (HCRXPAP) is avail-
able to help with finding
programs for free or re-


duced price medication and
making applications to
them. Applications for the
MEDCO program are avail-
able through them, as well
as numerous other pro-
grams. The assistance is free
of charge. Information and
applications for the
Medicare Approved Drug
Discount Card and the up-
coming Medicare Part D are
also available.
The Hamilton County
SHINE (Serving Health In-
surance Needs of Elders)
representative is also located
in the program office.
Those coming to the
HCRXPAP should bring:
prescriptions; Medicare or
other insurance cards; iden-
tification and verification of


income. The application
process generally takes four
to six weeks before any
medicine is received so indi-
viduals should be prepared
to purchase a month's sup-
ply at their pharmacy. Their
doctor may be also be able to
help with samples during
this application period. The
person is usually able to get
a year's supply of the medi-
cine before reapplying.
The program is located at
204 Northeast 1st Street, in
the Sandlin building. It is
open daily from 8 a.m. until
5 p.m. and appointments are
not needed. The telephone
number is 792-2143. There is
no charge for the program's
services and it is open to all
Hamilton County residents.

HCI hosts 2005 Suwannee River Manhunt


Twenty teams of blood-
hounds and their han-
dlers gathered in Hamil-
ton County for one of the
largest manhunts ever
conducted in this area.
But they weren't tracking
an escaped prisoner or a
lost child they were par-
ticipating in a dog-track-
ing seminar.
Hamilton Correctional
Institution hosted the
Suwannee River Man-
hunt training session on
April 27 through 29, as-
sisted by Madison Cor-
rectional Institution who
prepared all the meals.
The event allows blood-
hounds and their han-
dlers to practice their
tracking skills in a new
environment.
Each team participated
in two tracking sessions,
one during the morning
and one at night. The
one-and-a-half mile


tracks were spaced sever-
al miles apart in several
areas of the county. As
hosts of the event, Hamil-
ton CI and Madison CI
did not participate in the
tracking sessions.
The goal of each team
was to reach their man
(who had laid the track)
in the quickest time pos-
sible. The fast pace of
bloodhounds and their
large size forces the han-
dler to go wherever the
dog goes through
woods and'briar patches,
swampy areas and
creeks. Many returned to
the Hamilton CI training
center with scrapes and
bruises and wet clothes.
All of the teams and
many Hamilton CI staff
gathered at the training
center for a celebration
lunch on Friday. Amid
many jokes and much
laughter, Warden Jack


Sapp and Lt. Stanley
Cribbs gave out door
prizes. Hamilton CI won
a prize as the team that
was best at throwing
horseshoes. A member of
the Union CI team won
the award for the best
turkey calling.
The four teams with the
least combined times for
the day track and the
night track received tro-
phies for their outstand-
ing performances. Tomo-
ka Correctional Institu-
tion placed fourth, while
Union Correctional Insti-
tution took third place.
Mayo Correctional Insti-
tution was awarded sec-
ond place. First place
winner was Calhoun Cor-
rectional Institution.
Hamilton CI has hosted
several manhunt training
seminars in the past and
plans to host another one
next year.

would be an ideal setting to
hold a folk festival.
Saunders presented the idea
to the Stephen Foster Memor-
ial Commission and they ap-
proved. The Commission con-
tacted Sara Gertrude Knott of
Princeton, Kentucky, who at
that time was the most experi-
enced individual in the United
States on presenting folk festi-
vals. Sara Gertrude Knott,
founder of the National Folk
Festival, met with the Stephen
Foster Memorial Commission
and agreed to come back to
coordinate a festival the fol-
lowing year. She arrived in
late December 1952, and
worked long hours to bring to-
gether as many ethnic groups
in Florida as possible.
The Florida Folk Festival
Association was organized in
1953. The officers were: J. L.
McMullen of Live Oak, presi-
dent; Helen Bixler of Dowling
Park, secretary; and Cary A.
Hardee of Live Oak, treasurer.
McMullen served four years
as president and was succeed-
ed by Aubrey Fowler of Live
Oak. McMullen was active in
many state organizations in-
cluding president of the State
Association of Court Clerks
and president of the Florida
Jaycees. Helen Bixler was ex-
ecutive secretary of the
Suwannee Chamber of Com-
merce. Cary Hardee was own-
er and president of a Live Oak
bank and served as governor
of the Florida from 1920-
1 9 2 4
The Florida Folk Festival
was officially sponsored by
the Florida Folk Festival As-
sociation for more than 10
years beginning with the first
festival in 1953.
Four months after the festi-
val was organized, the ring of
the old school bell and the call
of a town crier opened the Fes-
tival against a backdrop of
huge pines and moss-draped
oaks and magnolias. By the
time the last program ended at
sunset, two and one-half days
later, the festival had present-
ed Minorcans, Seminole and
Miccosukee Indians, Greek-
Americans, Jewish-Ameri-
cans, Czech-Americans, Span-
ish-Americans, African-
Americans and Florida Crack-
ers.
School groups performed
singing games, square-danc-
ing, folk singing. Maypole

All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who knows help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She, settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false. She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is just
a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love, there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.

With the closing of the first
Florida Folk Festival May 10,
1953, Floridians had been in-
troduced to themselves and to
their visitors in a way they
had never known before.
When it was over, all agreed
that the first Florida Folk Fes-
tival was a success to be re-
peated annually. As Miss
Knott wrote for the 1969 pro-
gram, "Little did we dream
when the first two years of the
Florida Folk Festival had
passed, with the young Festi-
val roots in the soil of the
state, that a few years hence,
the Sunshine State would
have developed a real Florida
Folk Festival peculiar to that
state alone."
Knott directed the first two
Florida Folk Festivals, but
she asked after the second
that the commission begin
searching for her replace-
ment. The Florida Folk Festi-
val Association met with the
Stephen Foster Memorial
Commission and stressed that
they felt the Florida Folk Fes-
tival should be directed by a
Floridian and presented the
name of one of the perform-
ers, Miss Thelma A. Boltin of
Gainesville, director of pro-
grams for the Gainesville
Recreation Department.
Boltin had been a participant
in the first two festivals as a


storyteller relating her famous
Old Knocker family ghost
tales and The Legend of the
Spanish Moss.
Boltin was contracted in
1954 to direct the festival.
She moved to White Springs
in 1956 when she was em-
ployed full time as director of
special events at the Stephen
Foster Memorial and lived
there until the late 1970s.
Miss Boltin traveled count-
less thousands of miles, in-
state and out-of-state seeking
talent and ways to improve
the Festival. Boltin presented
her program called "Florida
Lore in Song and Story" to
hundreds of school children
and civic organizations
throughout Florida and South
Georgia. Over the years she
became the first lady of the
Florida Folk Festival, affec-
tionately known as 'Cousin
Thelma' to the thousands who
attended the festival from
1955 to 1986. It was evident
to all who attended that Thel-
ma Boltin was a legend at the
Florida Folk Festival, as she
introduced every act with
.homespun sincerity .for each
performer or group who ap-
peared on the stage. In 1986
Boltin began sharing her mis-
tress of ceremony duties with
other long-time festival per-
formers. In 2002, the Florida
Park Service assumed full re-
sponsibility for coordinating
and producing the Annual
Florida Folk Festival, begin-
ning with the 50th anniver-
sary presentation that year.

Time for a Promotion

Dear Time.

It ma,, be time to sit do\\ n %ith \.our boss in a for-
mal. honest meeting and discuss future career plans.
Before the meeting, do some research. Be specific
about %%here \ou \iant to go. Fimd out \hat the qual-
ifications are for that position, and then honestly
evaluate your competency level in terms of that job.
If \ou have skill deficits, develop a plan to close that
gap. When you talk \with your boss, ask ho\v he or
she would d rate you on those skills. If both of your as-
sessments are different, that provides a good starting
point to discuss 'our future and may explain why
you've been passed over for promotion. Jointly de-
.elop concrete actions that you can take to get you
read. for that future promotion. And don't forget to
keep your boss informed on your progress You'll be

Routine healthcare checkups can help doctors spot problems early on so they can be treated
before they become more serious.
Many women feel that they can't give a man directions. Maybe it's the stubborn
tendency of males, or maybe it's that they don't like to be told what to do. It comes as no
surprise, then, that it's difficult to get most men to go to the doctor. Maybe they don't want
to talk about their health problems. Perhaps they feel normal and don't see a need to make
an appointment. Or it could be because they don't want to hear that anything is wrong with
them. Whatever the case may be, it's important that men get regular health screening tests.
Catching problems early on, can often help prevent them from turning into something
more serious down the road.
Below are some guidelines on men's screening tests. If you are a man reading this, talk
to your doctor about when he thinks you should schedule these exams, as test frequency
varies based on your age, your health history and your family's health history.
BODY MEASUREMENTS
Taking your height, weight and body-mass index (BMI) helps determine whether your
are overweight. Overweight people are more likely to have high blood pressure, heart
disease or diabetes. BMI is assessed using a mathematical form of weight and height.
BLOOD PRESSURE
A blood-pressure test is the only way to determine if you have high blood pressure. If
undetected and untreated, it can.increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure and
kidney failure. According to the American Heart Association, you should get it checked at
least once every two years and more often if your doctor says it's high.
CHOLESTEROL TEST
A blood test is used to determine your good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterol levels.
According'to the AHA, cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found among the lipids (fats)
in the bloodstream and in all your body's cells. Humans need cholesterol, but a high level
increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. Men age 20 years or older should have their
cholesterol checked every five years and more frequently as they age or if they have high
cholesterol levels.
COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING
This screening uses various tests to examine the colon for polyps that may become
cancerous or to find colon cancer before symptoms occur. Men 50 or older should talk to
their doctor about which tests are right for them and when to have them done.
PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING TEST
Prostate cancer is detected through a blood test that determines the amount of prostate-
specific antigen (PDA) in your blood, or through a digital rectal exam (DRE) where a
doctor inserts his lubricated, gloved finger into the rectum to examine the prostate gland
for any irregularities. The American Cancer Society suggests that men get tested for
prostate cancer every year, starting at age 50.
TESTICULAR EXAM
This test examines the testicles for enlargement, swelling or a lump. Doctors usually
check for this at your physical exam, especially if you tell them that you've noticed a
change in your testicles or are between the ages of 15 and 40.
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE TESTS
These tests determine if you have a sexually transmitted disease (STDs) like syphilis,
chlamydia or HIV/AIDS. Your doctor will determined which tests you should get based on
risk factors and sexual history.
DENTAL EXAM
During this exam, a dentist will examine your teeth and gums for cavities or oral cancer.
The American Dental Association recommends that you go once or twice a year for a
checkup and cleaning.
EYE EXAM
Eye exams assess if you need your vision corrected by either wearing prescription
eyeglasses or contact lenses. They also identify existing vision problems like glaucoma or
cataracts. Eye experts suggest that you get your eyes checked by an eye-care professional
every year.
HEARING TEST
A hearing test gauges your speech and sound recognition at various levels. Ask your
doctor how often you should get your hearing tested.

Dear Classified Guys,
Help! My son turned sixteen and just
passed his driver's test. Now he's
begging for the keys to my BMW.
Yeah right! He needs to start out in an
old car like I did. My father bought
me a car that looked like a Mary Kay
Cosmetics reject complete with the
pink paint job and permanent perfume
smell. Try driving one of those to
high school everyday! It definitely
builds your character when you pull
up in the hot pink sedan. I need some
help in determining a good car
for my son that isn't my new /.
BMW. Any thoughts on how I_--
to pick a car for my new dri- T
ver?


Carry: It seems the only way to be
completely safe on the roads these days is
to drive a tank. I just don't think you
want him to try parallel parking that next
to your BMW.
Cash: And I'm not sure that they come
in pink either!
Carry: Now other than looking for the
perfect color to embarrass your son at
school, there are other things to consider.
It's probably best to find a good running
used car with some safety features like air
bags and anti-lock brakes.
Cash: The appearance probably isn't


TE

that important since teenagers are notori-
ous for minor mishaps. They often open
doors into telephone poles, back up into
curbs, or somehow get dings and scratch-
es without even knowing it. Exactly the
reasons you don't want him driving your
new BMW.
Carry: Now it's difficult for us to give
you exact models to look for since we
know that everyone's personal prefer-
ences are very different.
Cash: While your son may encourage
you to buy him a nice sports car, be sure
to focus on safety first. Many think that
SUV's are the safe because of their size,
but giving a teenager a car of that size


could be risky. In fact, the National
Safety Council determined that some of
the safest cars on the road are the four-
door sedans. And those probably won't
break your budget.
Carry: Before you buy anything, call
your insurance company and inquire
about the rates for each of the cars you
are considering. You may find consider-
able variations in premiums for different
models.
Cash: And if you want your son to be
responsible with his new car, have him
contribute to the purchase. The more
money he invests, the more responsible
he will be while driving.


Lead By Example
Teaching your teenager proper driving
skills may be a good opportunity to
sharpen yours as well. Consider
enrolling all the drivers in your family in
a defensive driving course. These cours-
es can teach everyone in the family how
to recognize conditions that avoid acci-
dents. Not only will you benefit from the
knowledge, but your insurance company
may offer discounts on your insurance
premiums as well. Check with your
motor vehicle department or insurance
company about courses near you.
Pink Cadillac
It may not be the optimum ride for a
teenage boy, but the pink Cadillac is a
symbol of success if you work for Mary
Kay Cosmetics. Since 1969, Mary Kay
has awarded more than 80,000 pink cars
to its sales representatives. And it's no
easy task to acquire one. A sales repre-
sentative must sell more than $96,000
worth of cosmetics to be offered one of
those Caddy's for a two-year period.
However, if your sales just don't quite
make the grade, selling $1.8,000 in four
months gets you the use of a pink Pontiac
Vibe instead.
Got a question or funny story? Let us hear it.
Leave a message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or
send to: P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Road Trip
Since my co-worker and I are just
out of college, we have become really
good friends. The only problem is that
we come from very different back-
grounds.
For example, my family likes to
"rough it" and go camping. To her,
"roughing it" means a hotel without
room service and a pool.
So when we carpooled for a recent
conference, we decided to take my car.
Along the way we got lost and I told
her we needed a map. "No problem,"
she said as she looked at the dashboard
and pressed a button. "We'll just use
your On-Star."
"I don't have On-Star," I replied try-
ing to hold back my laughter. "That's
the rear defroster."
(Thanks to Angelina K.)
