Candice Pike
Jasper News
The Hamilton County
Housing for Humanity,
Inc. (HCHH) held its first
orientation at the Jasper
Civic Center on Tuesday,
June 28. The group is a
non-profit organization
that uses private funding
and volunteers to help in-
dividuals and families to
afford quality housing. The
orientation provided the
first step in educating the
public about the mission
and how they can apply for


this program. It was a suc-
cessful meeting fifty per-
cent of those who attended
applied for housing and
one third of the attendees
registered as a volunteer.
The mission of HCHH is
to eliminate poverty, sub-
standard housing condi-
tions, and homelessness in
Hamilton County, one
family, one step at a time.
With community volun-
teers and donations this
project can be successful.
Board members include
Margie Adcock, John Auer,
Linda Auer, Keith Hitson,
Ralph Hardwick, Pam


Tomlinson, Robert
Townsend, Vickey Udell
and Lewis Vaughn.
All applicants must at-
tend an orientation and fill

plicant must be a Hamilton
County Resident for three
years, prove ability to pay
taxes, insurance and mort-
gage payments, volunteer

Medicare Part D important

information about the new

prescription drug benefit


By Marie Smith
AARP National President
Change is on the hori-
zon for millions of Ameri-
cans struggling to pay for
the prescription medica-
tions they desperately
need. Thanks to updates
in Medicare, protection
from high-cost prescrip-
tions will soon be here.
Prescription drug cover-
age from Medicare, also
called Medicare Part D,
will begin on January 1,
2006.
What a way to bring in
the New Year. It's espe-
cially good news for peo-
ple. with extremely high
drug costs and for the
more than 15 million se-
niors with limited-in-
comes who are juggling
essentials. Hopefully, the
stories of splitting pills,
skipping refills, or choos-
ing to purchase prescrip-
tions rather than groceries
will become tales of the
past.
Medicare prescription
drug coverage is not auto-
matic, except for Medicare
participants who also re-
ceive Medicaid. It's also
not free, but well worth
the cost beneficiaries
will be protected from
high drug costs today and


in the future. The cover-
age is set up through pri-
vate health insurance
plans, but focused on pre-
scription drugs. Each
Medicare participant will
choose the plan that
works best for their needs.
Most plans will have an-
nual deductibles, co-pays,
and monthly premiums.
All Medicare beneficia-
ries have an important de-
cision to make whether
or not to enroll in a
Medicare prescription
plan during the first sign-
up period, November 15,
2005, to May 15, 2006. Par-
ticipation is not required;
however, there is a penal-
ty for late enrollment. Eli-
gible beneficiaries who
skip the first sign-up peri-
od will pay higher month-
ly premiums permanently
when they finally enroll.
Only beneficiaries cov-
ered under a qualifying
employer's plan, which
they choose to keep rather
than switching to a
Medicare plan, will not be
penalized. For beneficia-
ries without prescription
coverage, signing up for
the Medicare coverage is
an excellent choice.
Medicare Part D enroll-
ment information will be


mailed this fall from
Medicare and participat-
ing plan providers. But,
right now is an important
time for beneficiaries with
limited incomes. This
month, the Social Security
Administration, SSA, be-
gan mailing applications
to limited-income
Medicare recipients, invit-
ing them to apply for ex-
tra assistance with
Medicare's prescription
drug coverage. Watch for
a standard SSA envelope;
nothing will identify it as
your application for extra
help.
Fill out and return your
application to SSA; they
will determine whether or
not you qualify for extra
help. Eligibility is based
on income, so it's critical
that you, a family mem-
ber, or a caregiver com-
plete and return the appli-
cation as quickly as possi-
ble. Even partially com-
pleted written applica-
tions will be accepted.
SSA will contact these
beneficiaries to help them
complete their forms. ,
Complete applications
can be sent to SSA elec-
tronically through the In-

see Medicare, Page 2A

vealed crime volume, the
actual number of reported'
crimes, decreased 3.5%.
"Although we are experi-
encing the lowest crime
rate in 34 years, we cannot
let down our guard. Law
enforcement officers are at
work 24 hours a day, seven
days a week," Commis-
sioner Tunnell said. "We
must ensure that they con-
tinue to have the support
necessary to do their jobs.
With the leadership of the
Governor and the Legisla-
ture, as well as the active
assistance of the citizens of
Florida, we must continue
to focus our commitment
and resources on the safety
and security of the people
in our state."
In 1999, Governor Bush
signed the "10-20-LIFE"
crime bill into law, requir-.
ing a minimum 10-year
sentence for crimes com-
mitted with a gun, a 20-
year sentence for firing a
gun during the commis-
sion of a crime and 25 years
to life if the bullet fired
causes death or injury.


Since 1998, the volume of
crimes committed with
guns has decreased 18.6%,
while the rate of gun crime
has gone down 30.3% in
that same period.
The number of reported
domestic violence offenses
decreased 0.8%, and arrests
for these crimes decreased
1.5% from last year. Spous-
es and cohabitants contin-
ue to account for more than
half the victims of domestic
violence crimes. Domestic
violence offenses account-
ed for 26.3% of comparably
reported violent crimes.
Slightly less than one-fifth
(19.5%) of all murders were
domestic violence-related
incidents.
This year's report in-
cludes data submitted by
408 local, county and state
law enforcement agencies,
including all 67 sheriffs' of-
fices.

Operation Oak has

record planting year


This year, the National
Wild Turkey Federation's
Operation Oak program
distributed 45,700 select
oak seedlings to public and
private land managers
throughout the Southeast.
Through a Natural Re-
sources Conservation Ser-
vice grant, the NWTF dis-
tributed seedlings to 205
local NWTF chapters and
79 private landowners. As
part of the grant, 36,000
seedlings were distributed
to private landowners and
public land managers in
Alabama, Arkansas, Geor-
gia and Florida. The re-
maining seedlings were
distributed to chapters in
Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee,
Mississippi, Louisiana and


Texas.
"In the past, white oaks,
red oaks, hickory and
beech trees dominated
Southeastern forests, large-
ly because land clearing
and prescribed fire by
American Indians made
conditions perfect for these
trees," said Scott Vance,
NWTF's regional habitat
programs director. "Today,
different forest manage-
ment practices have caused
a decrease in oak and other
food-producing trees and
spurred an increase in trees
that provide limited habi-
tat for wildlife."
To help curb this trend,
the National Wild Turkey
Federation created a pro-
gram in 2000 called Opera-
tion Oak to distribute oak


seedlings each year to
NWTF chapters whose vol-
unteers plant the seedlings
on private and public prop-
erties to enhance wildlife
habitat.
"A lot of animals depend
heavily upon oak trees for
food and shelter, but resi-
dential development,
changing land uses and fire
suppression has really af-
fected Southeastern hard-
wood stands," said Vance.
"By planting these oaks,
we're providing a long-
term food source for
wildlife."

the Operation Oak pro-
gram, visit www.nwtf.org

Recognizing the benefits
of a day spent outdoors with
family and friends, Gov. Jeb
Bush signed a proclamation
highlighting July as Recre-
ation and Parks Month.
Celebrated by both the na-
tion and state, Recreation
and Parks Month recognizes
the benefits of recreational
and educational opportuni-
ties, including boosting the
economy, attracting new
businesses, strengthening
families and neighborhood
involvement.
"From the crystal clear wa-
ters of our freshwater
springs to the armaments
preserved in centuries-old
forts, Florida's award-win-
ning state parks offer some-
thing for everyone," said
Florida Park Service Director
Mike Bullock. "During
Recreation and Parks Month,
I invite all Floridians to enjoy
the historical resources,
recreational opportunities
and wildlife that make our
park system one of the best
in the nation."
Nominated as a finalist for
the Gold Medal award hon-
oring the Nation's Best State
Park Service, Florida's state
park system is one of the


largest in the country with
159 parks spanning more
than 730,000 acres and more
than 100 miles of sandy
white beach. From swim-
ming and diving in rivers
and springs to birding and
fishing or hiking and riding
on natural scenic trails, Flori-
da's state parks offer year-
around outdoor activities for
all ages. Battle reenactments
and Native American festi-
vals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art
shows, museums and light-
houses offer a window into
Florida's cultural heritage.
Activities during Recre-
ation and Parks Month in
North Florida include:
Little Talbot Island State
Park is hosting the Jack-
sonville Sprint Triathlon Se-
ries on Sunday, July 17,
which includes swimming
along Little Talbot's pristine
beach, bicycling through Big
Talbot Island State Park and
running on the newly con-
structed Timucuan Multi-
Use Trail. Registration re-
quired.
Due to recent high water
on the prairie basin, Paynes
Prairie Preserve State Park is
offering canoe or kayak


tours of the unique ecosys-
tem on Sunday, July 24. The
two-hour trip will follow the
La Chua trail around
Alachua Lake. Paddlers will
possibly see wading birds,
osprey, bald eagles, alliga-
tors and other area wildlife.
Rainbow Springs State
Park will hold a Summer Se-
ries of Musical Events, tak-
ing place once a month from
July through October. The
first musical event on Satur-
day, July 16, has been
dubbed "Kelly's Music" by
singer George Koper, one of
the park's volunteers. He
sings a wide variety of popu-
lar music, including Elvis,
Jimmy Buffet and many
more. Bring a chair and lis-
ten to music against the
backdrop of the sparkling
springs and Rainbow River.
Songs, stories, music or
poetry may be performed at
the First Friday Coffeehouse,
an open-stage night held in
the Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park audi-
torium on Thursday, July 7.
The entertainment is free,

AARP Florida


introduces


hurricane


recovery video


jua ow I


During one of the most
active and devastating hur-
ricane seasons in Florida's
history, almost every coun-
ty in the state was impacted
by Hurricanes Bonnie,
Charley, Frances, Ivan, and
Jeanne. Many counties will
be struggling to get things
back to normal for the next
few years. The American
Association of Retired Per-
sons (AARP) of Florida has
been busy working to pro-
vide a positive impact upon
those who have been ad-
versely affected and are still
recovering.
AARP Florida is offering
"After the Storm," a disaster
recovery video for residents
to better prepare for storms
in the future and help them
in the aftermath with tips on
safety, basic subsistence, ma-
jor home repairs, and recon-
struction. This video pro-
vides consumers with infor-
mation on how to contact lo-
cal and state authorities, re-
lief agencies, and repair ser-
vices.
The free video comes in
VHS and DVD format and is
available at AARP Florida


chapters, senior centers and
libraries across the state. For
more information and loca-
tions where "After the
Storm" can be found visit
AARP Florida's website at
www.aarp.org/fl.
AARP Florida has also de-
veloped a special publication
related to disaster recovery
which provides important
toll-free numbers for infor-
mation and assistance on is-
sues like price gouging, in-
surance problems, senior ser-
vices, consumer problems
and more. This publication
also provides fraud preven-
tion.advice so that those im-
pacted don't become victims
of disaster related scams.
This publication can be ac-
cessed by visiting the website
listed above or by calling the
State office at 866-595-7678.
With more than 2.7 million
members in Florida and 36
million nationwide AARP
is a nonprofit, nonpartisan
membership organization
that helps people 50+ have
independence, choice and
control in ways that are ben-
eficial and affordable to them
and society as a whole.

Dear Editor:
"Why doesn't she lust
leave him?' This is a ques-
tion we, as advocates for
victims and survivors of do-
mestic violence, hear every
day. Although we believe
we have a clear cut answer,
neither friends, family, law
enforcement, judges, nor the
victim herself, really believe
nor understand it. It's not a
real question that calls for
an answer, it makes a judg-
rment. It transforms a'soial
p rdBln"i'ii .t.t6" a"p'ertbital
transaction, and places re-
sponsibility on the victim.
Victims and survivors of
domestic violence look like
any one of us. We are pro-
fessionals or unemployed.
We are White, Black, His-
panic or any other ethnic
culture. We are literate, illit-
erate, wealthy or poor. In
short, we are you.
Well-intentioned friends,
family members, courts and
police may say things like:
"You seem like such a smart
person... just leave." Or my
personal favorite, "You
must like it or you would
get out." The truth is, those
statements make sense, un-
less you've been there.
The common thread
among victims and sur-
vivors of domestic violence
is that we are all caring and
nurturing people who mis-
takenly think we can take
care of, rescue, and fix
someone else.
Leaving an abusive part-
ner is a process. The ques-
tions that may arise are
many: Where does she go?


Howi will
-he pro-
vide for
her chil-
d r e n
T h e
shame of
a failed marriage, but most
prominently, fear holds a
victim of domestic violence
paralyzed. According to the
U.S. Department of Justice
Bureau of Justice Statistics,
one-third of all female
homicide i'ctiNfs ac 'l ,e
by ar' 'ritimate' partner,
many when they are at-
tempting to leave or have al-
ready moved from their
shared home.
Despite the achievements
of the battered women's
movement in the past thirty
years, those who work to
stop violence against
women those who answer
the hot-lines and staff shel-
ters, the legal service attor-
neys, those who lobby for
legislative reform, law en-
forcement and the judicial
system know that the next
time a woman is battered by
her husband or partner
(which is every 12 seconds)
few people will ask,
"What's wrong with him?"
"Will he be prosecuted?"
"Does she need any help?"
No, the first question will
be, "Why doesn't she just
leave?"
The right to be safe is fun-
damental, but for many,
that right is violated in their
own homes. Another Way,
Inc. believes those who live
in violent homes are entitled
to support and assistance

Our 24-

If you, or someone you
love, is not safe in their

In Honor and Memory of

Joshua Leon Scaff



















Joshua Leon Scaff
Dear Family, Friends, and Community,
It has been nearly one and one-half months since
Joshua's tragic death. Although we miss him greatly
our grief is eased by the knowledge that he is fully em-
braced in our Savior, Jesus Christ's arms. Each one of
you that have ministered to us through your calls,
cards, flowers, food, paper goods, monetary gifts, love
and prayers have helped to make this burden easier to
bear. You have showered us with such overwhelming
kindness and thoughtfulness that we cannot begin to
fully express the gratitude and Christian love we feel
to each of you.
We want to take a moment to say thank you from
the bottom of our hearts and souls. Jesus declared,
"Verily I say unto you, 'Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have
done it unto me.'" Matthew 25:40.
Thank you so much for all you have done for our
family during this difficult time. Please continue to
pray for us.
In Christ's Love,
The Mark Scaff Family

"In Congress, July 4,
1776, the unanimous Decla-
ration of the Thirteen Unit-
ed States of America" is
how our Declaration of In-
dependence starts out. Our
forefathers had been taken
advantage of, treated un-
fairly, abused, over taxed,
and bullied by Great
Britain. The riches of North
America were being
shipped back, t ,England
and the people of the Thir-
teen Colonies were sick
and tired of it. They came
together in unity to stand'
unanimously against the
tyranny of our mother
land. Because of the unity

and commitment of each
signer of the Declaration
and the people they repre-
sented, the United Stated of
America was established.
And even though at that
time they were much
smaller and weaker, they
were able to overcome
British rule and establish
freedom from Great
Britain.
. It is.amazing,what stand-
ing in unity with others can
do. God suggests that be-
ing in unity of the Spirit of
God with others will usher
in peace and maturity
among the Body of Christ

uroF m fo r g grandparents raising grandchildren


. .-..----%- I v v


Those grandparents
who are "off their rocker"
and serving as parents for
grandchildren may be
looking for a friendly
source of support. An all-
day forum for grandpar-
ents raising grandchil-
dren will be held at Ad-
vent Christian Village,
Dowling Park, on Friday,
July 15, from 8:30 a.m. to
3:30 p.m. The forum is


open to residents of
Hamilton, Suwannee,
Lafayette, Columbia, Tay-
lor and Madison Coun-
ties.
The forum offers infor-
mation, relaxation, and
support for grandparents.
ACV Department of
Youth and Family Ser-
vices will provide care for
the grandchildren.
The topics include un-


derstanding the different
relationships that occur
when a grandparent be-
comes the "parent." In
addition, experts will dis-
cuss where to get help
with legal, insurance, and
behavioral issues. Grand-
parents can suggest the
services that are most
needed by them.
A $5 per adult registra-
tion fee includes lunch


that we could pray that
God's Kingdom would
come and His will done on
earth as it is in heaven (Mt.
6:10). This sounds amazing
that it could happen but so
did the Declaration of Inde-
pendence in 1776. Just as it
happened then, everything
that God says can happen,
will happen when we get in
unity with Him.
Furthermore the Scrip-
tures tell us that "if you
confess with your mouth
the Lord Jesus and believe
in your heart that God has
raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved" (Rom.
10:9). And "For the law of
the Spirit of life in Christ Je-
sus has made me free from
the law of sin and death."
(Rom. 8:2). This is true in-
dependence from the pow-
er of the devil. This is true
freedom in Jesus Christ. But
it will not come to you until
you get sick and tired of the


and childcare. To reg
call Sonja Riley at 386-658-
5410. Pre-registration is
appreciated and will help
ACV plan for the day. The
meeting place is Copeland

vin Jones Blvd., on the
ACV campus.
The forum is a coopera-
tive effort between ACV
and the Suwannee County
Cooperative Service.


tyranny of the devil taking
advantage of you, treating
you unfairly, abusing you
and robbing you of what is
rightfully yours.
Spiritual freedom is
available to all of us if we
would just agree with God.
To be in unity with His
Spirit is to agree with and
do His will. Independence
from sin and spiritual death
is a wonderful thing but to
be independent of that we
must become totally depen-
dent upon God. Most of us
in the United States cele-
brate our independence so
much that it is hard for us
to submit and become de-
pendent upon God.
Now that we have cele-
brated the Day of Indepen-
dence of our nation we can
focus on being indepen-
dent of sin and spiritual
death by becoming depen-
dent on Jesus Christ to save
us and set us free.

COMMENTARY

Memo from a Trojan fan

Trojans making work fun
By Terry Hedgespeth, Sports Reporter


Over 30 miles of ATV trails are now open to the public in Mallory Swamp in Lafayette County.
(Photo Submitted)


SRWMD opens public ATV


trails at Mallory Swamp


A ll-terrain vehicle (ATV) trails are
now open in Mallory Swamp,
7 Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District SRWND officials have an-
nounced. Thirty-eight miles of trails have
been designated for public ATV use from
':now through September 17. The District
will close the property to ATV activities
beginning September 18, the start of hunt-
ing season.
Mallory Swamp is located in the south-
.central part of Lafayette County, and is
owned by the District. A major restoration
Project is underway there following the
massive 1991 wildfire that burned 60,000
acres.
The extensive road system on the prop-
Serty allowed managers to provide ATV
I riders with loop trails that can be used
without causing environmental harm. The
Mallory Swamp trail is the District's first
foray into opening up lands for ATV use,
Sand officials hope it will be a success.
After the September 17 closing of the
trail District staff will evaluate whether


the property has withstood the use and
ATV riders have complied with the condi-
tions authorized by the District's govern-
ing board. Among the conditions:
All persons operating an ATV at Mallo-
ry Swamp must carry a daily special-use
authorization (SUA), available at the ATV
parking area kiosk.
Riders 16 years old or younger must be
accompanied by a parent or legal
guardian, who is required to sign the
SUA. Riders must stay on designated
trails and obey posted speed limits. The
trails are open during daylight hours
only. No alcohol or firearms are allowed.
The use of helmets is not required but is
encouraged, along with other safety
guidelines. A complete list of SUA rules
and safety guidelines, and an ATV trails
map are available at www.mysuwan-
neeriver.com. Following the evaluation
this fall the District will decide whether to
continue ATV use on the property.
For more information call the District at
386-362-1001 or 800-266-1066.


i


I recently had the priviledge to
attend a Trojans workout. I
must admit, I was a little as-
-tonished.
The first order of business was to
meet the new coach that I had
heard so much about in Corey
Green. Trojan fans, if you have not
met your new coach yet, let me tell
you that you have a gem.
The Trojans were recently slated
to hit the weight room, but had to
take the field for a little fun time
with a game unique style of catch,
.and run football. Coach Green
pro ed he would not ask any thing
-of his players that he would not do.
It- was just a matter of time before
he would join the 40 plus players
on the field. I had to search hard to
-find him as the young coach blend-
ed in \\ell with the voungster-.
After a 30 minute workout on the
field, the team made their way to
the weight room. This is usually
the hardest and most grueling in
preparation for a tough season, but
the strange thing here was that the
team was giving the impression
-that they were having a great time,
and that included the coach.
- During the workout, the Trojans
had a special visitor. Columbia
-High Coach Danny Green made a
entrance during the workout. We
'all kind of stopped and could not
help but stare. Coach Green is well
respected in this area as the former
Lake City coach, and has just re-
turned to resume his coaching du-
ties there. Just a hunch, I do not
think it will take very long for fa-
ther and son to lock up on the grid-
iron in what should be a fun game
-for both schools. .- :, ... -.,
I was able to finally meet up with
-some special folks that I had heard a
lot about. One was LaRue Lieupo.


This young lady is as hard a worker
as you are going to ever meet. The_
Trojans certainly had a ton of re-
spect for her as she did for them. -
I was also very fortunate to meet
assistant coaches John Paul Jr. and -
junior varsity coach Ryan Mitchell.
I had met Coach Mitchell on the-
baseball field, but he was now in the
role of working his junior varsity-
players very hard in the weight
room.
When the hard work, or fun, de-
pending on how you veiwed it, was
over, the players were treated to
some chow that was made possible
by the parents and coaches. The-
stunning part afterwards was the
players working themselves even-
harder without the coaches involve-
ment by challenging each other to"
competi~l e 40 meter sprints.
The players on this team has to be ~
the most pleasant that I have had
the priviledge of hanging out with.
They were all very receptive and to
be honest with you, I will be finding
every reason that I can to hang out _
with this team and venture through
the 2005 football season with them. -
Beware of the Trojans in 2005. I
honestly cannot see this team be- -
ing anything other than success-
ful. There is strong leadership in-
both the coaching and players lev-
els, and the youth on this team,-
particurily the sophomore class, is
very strong. The work ethic and
determination are very apparent
also. I keep hearing about the fu-
ture of this team. I personally be- _
lieve the future is now. The Tro-
jans know the hard work that is -
needed to get to the top and are
making that effort. The time may -
be no, and it couldn't happen to
a better group of deserving Tro--
jans.


Booster Club meeting Tuesday, July 12


The Booster Club will hold its first meet-
ing of the year on Tuesday, July 12, at the
new Hamilton County' High School at 7


p.m. There will be an opportunity for every-
one to meet the new head football coach.
For additional information call 792-1685.

Speaking of a hard worker, Coach LaRue Lieupo helps spot and encourage each of the
Trojans. Coach Lieupo will join John Paul for the next 10 weeks to achieve their coach-
ing certification.


It is mealtime for the players. The parents seem to be stepping it up this year. With this
group of guys, they deserve whatever the community of Jasper can give to them in sup-
port of the 2005 football campaign.

Hamilton County 4th of July celebration


t*-" Af -f


Troopers to enforce primary


The Florida Highway Pa-
trol hopes that all Florida
residents and visitors had a
happy and safe 4th of July
weekend. For most, the hol-
iday weekend brings pic-
nics and patriotic parades,
concerts, and fireworks.
However, each year far too
many individuals lose their
lives in automobile crashes.
Motorists in Florida are
reminded of the new Pri-


mary Seat Belt Law which
became effective July 1. The
new primary law, passed
by the 2005 Florida Legisla-
ture and signed by Gov. Jeb
Bush recently, requires that
occupants (including the
driver) of a motor vehicle
under the age of 18 buckle
up in their vehicle. Law en-
forcement officers can now
stop any vehicle when dri-
vers or occupants under the


age of 18 are seen not wear-
ing seat belts. Under the
new Primary Seat Belt
Law, drivers will be held
responsible for the failure
of any occupant under the
age of 18 who fails to buck-
le up.
Despite the increase in
the safety belt usage rate,
traffic crash fatalities re-
main the leading cause of
death for Florida's


teenagers, a cause of death
that is preventable in many
cases by simply buckling
up. In order to help de-
crease the teen rate, troop-
ers will strictly enforce the
new primary seat belt law.
"We applaud the Governor
and Legislature for passing
this -important -primary-
safety belt legislation,
adding strength to Florida's
Safety Belt Law," said


seat belt law
Colonel Knight. "Wearing a car trouble on the highway
seat belt is a life-saving or otherwise need assis-
habit and forming that tance from the FHP are also
habit will be the goal of encouraged to use *FHP.
strict enforcement of the
new law," Knight added.
Motorists are encouraged
to call *FHP (*347) on their
cellular phone to report
drtmnkaggressive; or other
dangerous drivers. Callers
can remain anonymous.
Motorists who experience

The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) joins the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention
(CDC) and urges swim-
mers to adopt healthy
swimming behaviors that
will protect oneself and
others from the spread of
illness.
"Recreational water ar-
eas provide a great op-
portunity for individuals
to increase their level of
physical activity while
enjoying their leisure
time," said DOH Secre-
tary John Agwunobi. "By
taking simple preventa-
tive steps, Floridians can
make this a safe and
healthy summer."
Recreational Water Ill-
nesses (RWIs) are spread
by swimming in water
contaminated as a result
of poorly maintained
recreational water areas,
the presence of chlorine
resistant germs or runoff-
related contamination of
lakes or marine beaches.
The public's awareness
of RWIs and appropriate
swimming behaviors play
a pivotal role in RWI
transmission. Swimmers

health risk for the healthy
swimmers in the pool.
In addition, high-risk
groups such as the young,
elderly, pregnant and im-
munosuppressed should
also be advised about RWI
prevention" and healthy
swimming behaviors.
A person should not
swim if he/she has diar-
rhea. Germs can spread in
the water and make other
people sick.
A person should not
swallow water or get it in
his/her mouth.
Practice good hygiene -
germs on the body can get
into the water. Shower be-
fore swimming and wash
hands after using the toi-
let or changing diapers.
Take children on bath-
room breaks or change di-
apers often. Change dia-
pers in a bathroom and
not at the poolside. Germs
can spread to the surfaces
and objects in and around
the pool.

Norris Notes 9S


By Lillian Norris


A telephone call from
Betty Daniels regarding a
proposed high school
class reunion in the fu-
ture, resulted in my mak-
ing a call to Sandra Dail
Tickel, as I hadn't talked
with her in a while.
For those of you who do
not know who Sandra is,
(only if you have moved
here in recent years), she
is the daughter of the late
Reddin and Helen Bryan
Dail. Reddin served at the
fire chief for a number of
years and later resided at
Suwannee Valley Nursing
Center. Helen retired as
finance officer for the
Hamilton County School
System for several years.
Sandra is a retired nurse
and volunteers in assist-
ing homebound people in
the Plant City area.
Robert, Sandra's husband,
is retired from the tele-
phone company. Know-
ing these two it is certain
that they are busy helping
others. They have sold
their home and live in a
condominium with some-
one else to care for
grounds, etc.
The Tickels have a son,
who is married and the
family was getting togeth-
er at his home the week-
end I talked with Sandra.
They have a daughter,
Carol, who is in real estate
in Naples and stays busy
and their daughter, Amy,
is married, has one son
and teaches in Jack-


sonville. I know I have
mentioned this family be-
fore but know they are
special to many of you.
They were so active in the
community and in the
Methodist Church.
Sandra's brother, Bill
Dail, is in the Navy Re-
serve and has just re-
turned from a tour of
duty, and is back in New
York, where he has made
his home for a number of
years. I believe Sandra
said he had been gone for
a year and will be retiring
again soon.
Carolyn Shaw has just
retired from the County
School Office and we re-
member when we were
neighbors with her fami-
ly, as we were with the
Dails. Carolyn went to
work with the school sys-
tem when Mrs. Dail was
there, and has worked
there ever since. Best
wishes on your retire-
ment, Carolyn. It is good
to know that Barbara.
Lewis is back in her office
at the School District Of-
fice after having been sick
for a while.
It is our understanding
that there were several
Bible Schools going on.
All were successful even
though they had so many
at the same time. All the
participants enjoyed it
thoroughly.
We were told that Billie
Payne was able to be back
to playing at the First


Kanoye Capps, in memory of
WW II Veteran and a Purple

United Methodist Church
of Jasper this past Sunday.
How happy everyone was
to have her there. Clyde
will be having more
surgery in the near future
but for now they are hap-
py to be back in Jasper
and at home.
Gail Trinder had a great
Mother's Day gift, a tele-
phone call from her son,
Senior Airman Will Har-
vey, saying he would be
leaving Iraq to come back
soon and would later be
going to Korea. She then
learned that he would be
leaving Iraq on July 15
and arriving back in the
States August 1. We are
grateful that he will be
coming home soon.
Richard and Ann Shep-
ard spent the July 4th hol-
iday weekend with their
daughter, Leigh Ann Nor-
ris and Ben, and their chil-
dren, Trey and Kaleigh.
Visiting Bill and Linda
Taylor and their family for
the 4th of July weekend
were long-time friends
from Middleburg, Fla.,
Charles and Marilyn Linn,
and their son, Austin. Lin-
da and daughter, Abby,
were busy preparing to be
vendors for a booth at the
festivities at the Recre-
ation Center. Guess we
won't be able to get news
in regarding the events, as
we will be sending news
in early, maybe we will be
able to get some in later.
Hope you all had a safe
and happy holiday. Re-
member our loved ones
and friends who are fight-
ing for us now in far away
places who are not able to
be at home with their fam-
ilies.

The "Dog Days" of
Summer are upon us. For
those of you who were not
"born and bred" in the
palmettos and pines of
Hamilton County, it is not
a special time for canines
to which I refer. Dog
Days encompasses that
time from July 3 through
August 11, the hottest,
most sultry part of the
summer, named after Sir-
ius, the Dog Star, that
shines extremely bright in
the constellation Canis
Major at this time of the
year.
The ancients believed
that the Dog Star added to
the heat of the sun during
"Dog Days." This isn't
true, but the ancients be-,
lieved it, and, so, from the
Dog Star "Sirius" we get
"Dog Days." All kinds of
regional lore associated
with "Dog Days' a lot of
it is true. Some of it is not
such as, "rattlesnakes are
blind" and will strike at
anything during dog
days. I don't know
whether this is true or not,
I don't care to be around a
rattlesnake whether or not
he/she is afflicted with
sight disorders. Another
belief associated with
"dog days" is that "sores"
or "wounds" won't heal
as quickly during dog
days this is probably due
to the fact that it is "hot-
ter."
I am sure if one is a "re-
alist" and affected by a
pure scientific thought,
one could find a rational
explanation for just about
anything, but there are
things I accept on "faith."
I love folklore, tradition,
and regional beliefs and
to coin a colloquialism "I
was raised on them,"
therefore, I accept them as
given. Enough about Dog
Days, on to the news!
Happy belated anniver-
sary wishes to Tony and
Joann Shotwell, owners of
the Country Caf6. Tony
and Joann recently cele-
brated their 35th wedding
anniversary. We appreci-
ate this special couple,
and we wish them many
more happy anniver-
saries.
Just across Second
Street, to the east, be-
tween Tony and Joann's
Restaurant and Malcolm
Greene's Barber Shop, is a
low, swampy, but beauti-
ful area that is about to
become a nature walk
area for the Town of
White Springs. The area is
being cleared of some de-
bris and underbrush now,
and the area will be
named after the late John
Graham, a White Springs
native, and the first
African American Mayor
of the Town of White
Springs.

am pleased that our town
will soon have this area of
natural beauty for all to
enjoy. It will be especially
accessible to our students
at South Hamilton Ele-
mentary. Many thanks to

Townsend and to all of
our city employees for all
their hard work in clean-
ing this area.
I would like to extend
my thanks to Larry
Hoover of Jasper, who is
the program assistant at
Stephen Foster Center.
Larry works hard making
many contributions to
Stephen Foster including
conducting the monthly
"Cracker Coffeehouses."
Thanks, Larry, you are ap-
preciated by many includ-
ing me. For those of you
who are not aware of the
Cracker Coffeehouse, it is
held once a month, the
first Saturday of the
month in the park service
auditorium at 7 p.m. If
you sing, or think you
can, or have a story to tell,
or a poem to read, the mi-
crophone is open, and you
may have your "fifteen
minutes" of fame "ten if
you are really lousy, just
kidding" at the Cracker
Coffeehouse.
The family members of
the late Mr. and Mrs. King
Henry Williams, will hold
their family reunion in
White Springs, July 8
through 10, with events
through the weekend. The
reunion will culminate
with worship services be-
ing held at the New Bethel
A.M.E. Church on Sun-
day, July 10, with worship
services beginning at 11
a.m. Members of this fam-
ily include many out-
standing individuals who
made and continue to
make contributions too
numerous to mention in
this column to our nation
as educators, medical doc-
tors, bankers, attorneys,
nurses, ministers. May


God continue to bless this
special family who has
meant so much to our
beloved White Springs,
Hamilton County, and to
our nation.
Beverly Davis of Lake
City, phoned me on
Thursday, June 30, and
"said" I have a surprise
for you and would like to
visit me at school before
11 a.m. I, of course, was
entranced. I am not good
at surprises. What a mar-
velous surprise! Beverly
was accompanied by my
cousins, Linda Bullard
Biggs, and Alek Biggs of
Honolulu, Haw., as well
as Beverly's "better half,"
my good friend, Don
Davis. We shared a de-
lightful visit. Visiting in
my office when they were
here was one of my oldest
and dearest friend, Irene
Morgan. Irene brought
granddaughters, Rachel
and Mallory to South for
the summer library pro-
gram. I invited her into
the office to share a visit
with me. The office where
she worked as school sec-
retary for many years. To
coin an old expression, it
was like "old home
week," and to coin anoth-
er expression used often
by the late Maude Haven-
er, "A good time was had
by all."

Summer is "flying" by.
While writing this, I am sit-

the peace and quiet of

Yesterday, the summer

preciation is extended first,

dents who were very faith-
ful in their attendance. Sec-
ond, to the parents and
grandparents who encour-
aged, cajoled, and used
whatever means was neces-
sary to insure your child's
attendance in our summer
school. The summer
months are "rough" when
it comes to early rising.
Many thanks to our dedi-
cated and devoted summer
school staff members.
Spence Corbett, who taught
third grade smmer read-
ing camp. Joan Radford,
reading coach, who helped
in ways too numerous to

grade summer school.


Louis Daniels who was
busy with the technology
needs at South and, in addi-
tion, helped our summer
school students with won-
derful computer assisted
instructional programs.
Anith Dye and Linda
Thomas who worked with
the Title 1 Summer School
students. Joann Brown, our
cafeteria manager, who
diligently worked and
served our students their

Clementine Flournoy, our
custodial staff. Jan Hunter,
our data clerk, who spent
several days inputtingg"
needed data as it applies to
summer school. Dorothy
Bryant, our Guidance
Counselor for all her val-
ued help. I wish to extend


very special thanks to De-
lores Howell, our curricu-

brary Program being held
at our school site during the
summer months.
Many thanks to Tracy
Woodard and Marlene

Library, and Danny Hales,

extend my thanks to our
Board of County Commis-

were "treated" to a Pizza
Party on the last day of
summer school, compli-
ments of our good friends
Bob and Melissa Thon of
Taglione's. God bless them
for their generosity to our
students. Students enjoyed
delicious pizza, red-white-
and-blue popsicles and oth-
er summer goodies. We
wish all of our students a
happy and safe summer va-
cation.
Any number of parents
have come to South and in-
quired about the Pre-
Kindergarten Program for
the Fall. Folks, in many in-
stances, I am "in the dark"
about PK. What I- do know
is that there will be a major
registration for PK students
at Greenwood School in
Jasper on Thursday, July 7.
Students must be four years
of age on orbefore Septem-
ber 1. To this registration
you must bring proof of
your child's age (birth cer-
tificate) and driver's license
or utility bill verifying your
Florida address. Staff will be
available to answer ques-
tions about Voluntary PK so
I will be at Greenwood
along with many of you on

reassurance that school life
is "going on." Many

Olde Tyme Barbersho



celebrates 6 years


By Joel Turner
Advertising Representative
Don Wilson, owner of Olde Tyme
Barbershop recently celebrated six
years in business. He established Olde
Tyme Barbershop in March of 1999.
Wilson began his career working for
his father for seven years cutting hair
(Don's father has owned his own shop
for 50 years), then moved on to work
in Dowling Park as a barber part-time
for "The Hair Cropper" barbershop as
well as for shut-ins in a nursing home
while working at a local bank. He has
always enjoyed cutting hair and always
wanted to open his own business. He


thought up the name (The Olde Tyme
Barbershop) and what it would be like
years before his business began and in
1999 his dreams became a reality.
He enjoys many aspects of his work
but the thing he enjoys most he says is
"the customers, as their barber, you be-
come like one of the family."
"Olde Tyme Barbershop" was voted
best barbershop in 2004. They do a
wide variety of haircuts to include:
regular haircuts, flat tops, fades (taper
cuts), as well as hot lather neck shaves.
They also carry aftershave and other
haircare products including flat top
wax.


Wilson has been married for 26
years and has two children (now
grown). He is very involved in the
Faith-in-Christ Anglican Church in
Lake City where he also serves as an
ordained deacon. His hobbies and free
time include traveling, shopping in an-
tique stores or just grabbing a bite to
eat at a local restaurant.
Wilson would like to thank and sup-
port all those who have given of them-
selves for our freedom as well as the
community for its continued support of
Olde Tyme Barbershop. And would
like to say thank you for six great
years of business!

Steinhatchee

Landing

Resort
By Karen Cornelius
If your idea of a great get-
away includes the natural won-
ders of Florida while enjoying
upscale modem conveniences,
then Steinhatchee Landing Re-
sort is the place for you. Locat-
ed in Taylor County just three
miles upriver from the Gulf of
Mexico, the resort offers natur-
al scenic beauty and enticing
outdoor activities for every-
one.
"I wanted a family-oriented
destination," said owner Dean
Fowler, "and there's plenty to
do for active families." Best
known for its family vacations
and reunions, the resort at-
tracts a very upscale clientele.
Former President Jimmy
Carter and his family stayed
for four days during the Christ-
mas holidays. It was their sec-
ond visit with all four of their
children and their families.
Among other outdoor adven-
tures, the Carter went deep-sea
fishing, catching over 400
pounds of grouper, one of
Florida's favorite fish. Return-
ing from their fishing trip at 5

p.m., by 6:30 p.m. they were
having a fish fry out on the
lawn of their Victorian cot-
tage.
"The main thing to do here
Sis to fish and scallop," says
SFowler. The pristine shoreline
and shallow grass flats pro-
vide habitat for any number of
saltwater fish, making for
Great sport fishing. Beginning
in July and ending around
Sept. 10, vacationers can take
a small boat out to approxi-
Smately three feet of water to
collect the scallops. The shell-
fish are found by snorkeling.
"When they see you coming ,
they'll try to run!" Fowler ex-
Splains. "It's like an Easter egg
hunt underwater. It's interest-
ing because while you're do-
ing it you get to see a lot of
fish, sting rays, small sharks
and other small shell fish."
Kayaking, canoeing and
bird watching are other ways
people appreciate the natural
wonders of Steinhatchee.
"The river is what attracted
me," Mr. Fowler recalls as he
describes his inspiration for
creating the resort. "It's in-
credibly beautiful, natural and
undeveloped." And Fowler
makes every effort to preserve
the area's rustic surroundings.
"We try to preserve every tree
possible. Instead of running a
grid system for our streets,
we've chosen to run the roads
around the trees."
With an atmosphere as
peaceful as this, you may find
the Landing to be the ideal
place to do as little as possi-
ble. Many will appreciate
modem accommodations such
as Jacuzzis and private
screened porches for enjoying
a cool drink while taking in
the simple sights and sounds
of old Florida. But rest as-
sured, there are other alluring
alternatives, such as biking, a
petting zoo, tennis, volleyball,
shuffleboard, badminton, bas-
ketball and an expansive play-
ground.
People come to the resort
for a lot of different reasons.
Fowler feels that he has found
his niche with environment
groups, as well as those who
desire unique conference fa-
cilities, corporate meetings,
reunions, receptions and espe-
cially weddings. The site is
complete with both indoor and

AUNT 21

KID'S CORNER

Home sweet home


SHE


By Aunt Pam
How many of you kid's have
ever gone on a trip to some-
where far away or maybe camp-
ing for a few days? While you
were gone you probably had a
good time, but you were still
happy to get back home. Home
is usually a really nice place to
be and there is a saying I am
sure you have heard before
"Home Sweet Home." In Ameri-
ca July is the month we cele-
brate the birthday of our coun-
try. A few weeks ago I took
some of my puppets to another
country, Honduras, to tell some
really poor, orphan children
who Jesus loves and wants to
help. I saw lots of children and
adults who are very poor. They
did not have clothes, or food,
and lots of them don't even
have doors on their houses.
There are children not too far


away from you, and who don't
have all the blessings we have
in America. They don't have any
stores, food, places like McDon-
aids or Wal Mart. They really
have very little. Some have no
home at all, some have never
had a bed, many go to sleep at
night with no food and no love.
You live in a wonderful country,
America. God has blessed Amer-
ica greatly, America is Free! Our
money says "In God we Trust."
The Bible says "Blessed is the
man that maketh the Lord his
trust."Psalms 40:4 We need to
remember to pray for our coun-
try, America, that everyone will
remember to put their trust in
God so God will keep her free!
Remember this summer to put"
your trust in God, don't com-
plain, but be thankful that you
live in a great country. America,
our "Home Sweet Home."


BIBLE VERSE

For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16


(She Hangs Everywhere)
She hangs everywhere in silence, yet still reminds us of her power.
She's respected in the sun and rain, and in our nations blackest hour.
She's hanging in the courtroom, so justice may prevail.
She stands for liberty and freedom, her stars and stripes will never fail.
She travels with our soldiers, and encourages each one well.
She stands for all their triumph, and their darkest nights of hell.
She's proudest over gravesites, where her colors gleam the best.
As she comforts family members, when their loved one's laid to rest.
She's beauty to the farmer, as the sweat's wiped from his brow.
For he feeds and serves his country, day and night behind the plow.
She's wept over and cursed at, and patriots salute her free.
She hangs in perfect honor, for every eye to see.
God gave us this great country, His touch is everywhere.
He gave it to hopeful mankind, to see how we would care.
All we that stand for freedom, bow to God and give Him praise.
And thank Him for a nation, for unto Him our flag is raised.
Thank You Lord

In the good old


America, home sweet home


By Pam Campbell
The time has come
once again for us to cel-
ebrate the birthday of
our blessed nation,
America! One can really
understand the words
"Home Sweet Home" af-
ter being away from
SAmerica for awhile. I
don't believe that most
people who live in
America actually under-
stand how blessed they
Really are. Oh, we all see
Sthe people in the Middle
East, and other nations
on the news, and we are
glad that we don't have
to live like they do. We
are thankful we don't
live in a communist na-
tion, or a war torn na-
tion, but have any of us
actually realized just
how close the severe
poverty of third world
countries are to Ameri-
ca? My family and I just
returned from Central
America, where we went
to Belize and Honduras.
These countries are so
very poor and underde-
veloped. The entire na-
tion of Belize has only
four traffic lights, the
houses, the schools, the
churches, the stores,
everything shows the se-
vere poverty of these
people. Very few of the
homes we saw even had
doors, and this is a na-
tion with a severe mos-
quito problem. The
largest store in the en-
tire nation is what we
would compare to a Wal
Mart, the difference is
this store is not much
larger than a conve-
nience store here in
America. It has no doors
and does not have much
to purchase. Until eight
months ago there was
no American restaurant
in the country. They now
have a Subway, and they
are so proud! Here in
America we think noth-
ing of running to grab
some things at the store
and maybe grabbing
some fast food while we
are out. This is not the
way they live in Belize.
Most of the people of
Belize cannot afford to
eat at Subway, they have
a hard time having food
to eat at home. We trav-
eled through the whole
country and saw life the
way it really is in this
third world country. The


people we encountered
were very friendly, but
very much in need.
Isla Roatan, in Hon-
duras, showed more
third world poverty. On
this island, they have to
pay $9 a gallon for milk,
when they can even find
any, and it is usually al-
ready sour. The public
school on the island has
a dirt floor and no elec-
tricity. The people on
this island are some of
the friendliest, and
some of the poorest. You
will see no American
restaurants or stores on
this island. The best
thing on the whole is-
land of Roatan is by far
the Child Sponsorship
International Orphan-
age, where American
missionaries are work-
ing very hard to have a
home with a homelike
atmosphere for the chil-
dren. This is the only
part of the island which
there seems to be any
hope, and that hope is
from God! They are
reaching the other peo-
ple, especially the chil-
dren and youth of the is-
land with the Good
News of Jesus Christ.
Since returning to the
United States and shar-
ing some of our trip
with others, I have had
many remind me that,
we have really poor peo-
ple and poor neighbor-
hoods in our own coun-
try. I agree with them. In
every part of our coun-
try, every state, every
county, from the north,
south, east and west,
you will find the poor,
the homeless, the job-
less, the needy, people
that are living in pover-
ty. There is a difference
though, in America,
there are places that
people can get help,
there are homeless shel-
ters, charity organiza-
tions, food pantries,
church clothes closets,
soup kitchen's, places to
go to get help finding a
job or job training, fi-
nancial aid for educa-
tion, welfare, food
stamps, Social Security,
and so much more. In
Belize and Honduras
they just don't have the
resources of help that
we have in America. Yes,
it is very true there are
many needy Americans,

but there are more
Americans that are mid-
dle class or upper class,
people who have really
been blessed, people
who work hard, that can
run to the store and buy
some clothes, a DVD
player, CD's, a new car,
groceries, even food for
a picnic or party! We
have vehicles to drive,
jobs to work at, schools
to go to, lot's of stores
to shop at, even theme
parks to go to. People in
America, even the poor
have many more oppor-
tunities to strive for bet-
ter, than in a third world
nation.
Can you imagine a na-
tion where a mother
abandons her toddler
and the people who take
her in are so uneducated
that they lock the child
in a chicken coop and
feed her like a wild ani-
mal for two years, just
because she has Downs
Sydrome? They did not
know what to with her,
because they had no
knowledge of Down
Syndrome. Here in
America there is help
for families with a Down
Sydrome child, and even
education is available.
The number of aban-
dond children on the is-
land is way too high, ba-
sically because of lack
of education and ex-
treme poverty. The next
time you are real busy
and your child asks you
to spend some time
with them, take the
time. Remember, how
blessed you are to live in
America, to have a
home, and to have a
family to love. We really
do live in a great nation,
yes, there are areas hit
with poverty, yes, many
American's are poor,
but look around, we
have grocery stores


filled with food, we
have, restaurants with
"all you can eat" buf-
fets, homes that have
furniture, food, doors,
clothes, toys, and love.
We have vehicles to dri-
ve, schools, churches,
and jobs to go to, and
we are free to go. Milk
is available and not for
$9 a gallon! America is
free country, let's thank
God for her. Psalms
40:4 says "Blessed is
the man that maketh
the Lord his trust." Our
money here in America
reads "In God We
Trust." Be thankful al-

ways that you live in
America, and pray that
America will continue
to put her trust in God.
Times Americans
complain about the gov-
ernment, the schools,
the' laws, the roads,
their neighbors, their
jobs, just about every-
thing, it really is time to
stop complaining and
start being more thank-
ful. Life is not just
about ourselves, but it
is about serving others
and most of all about
serving God. We need to
read David's prayer in
Psalms 27:7-8 "Hear, O

plaining about how
you wish things could
be, be thankful for
the way things are
and seek God's face
and put your trust in
him. He is a faithful
God, He. loves you and
has blessed you with a
great "Home Sweet

Make

toothbrushing

time fun
It can often be difficult for parents to get their children to
brush their teeth regularly. After all, kids see it as a chore,
not realizing that brushing and flossing is essential for a
healthy mouth. So how do you entice your kids to head
willingly to the bathroom to brush? Make it exciting, say the
oral experts who developed Fructodent(R) Gourmet
Toothpastes. Here are their tips for adding some "wow" to
your family's oral health routine:
Trendy toothbrushes -- Allow your kids to brush with an
electric toothbrush -- especially one emblazoned with their
favorite superhero or cartoon character. The vibrating action
will make the brushing experience a novelty. And what
youngster can pass up playing with a gadget ... even if it is a
toothbrush?
Deck out the bathroom -- Transform the bathroom into a
room of imagination. Let your kids dream up a theme for the
bathroom -- like an underwater adventure -- and then make it
come to life. Accessories like a ocean themed shower
curtain, wall mural, and toothbrush and soap holders will
really make a splash.
Flavor is "in" -- Why settle for mint toothpaste when each
member of the family can enjoy their own favorite flavor?
These days flavor variety is an exciting trend in toothpaste.
That's why Fructodent(R) Gourmet Toothpastes, offers eight
high-quality, distinctively flavored toothpastes. Your kids can
choose a new flavor every day, and you can add this
completely new experience to your own dental health
routine. Choose from these delicious flavors: Green Apple;
Orange & Lemon; Mint & Chocolate; Mint & Strawberry;
Eucalyptus, Aniseed and Licorice; Lemon and Sage; Mint &
Licorice; and Vanilla. For more information, call toll free at
(866) 4-PAGLIERI.
Be a role model -- Children are more likely to brush if
they see their parents practicing oral health care regularly ...
and willingly. Invite the kids into the bathroom and give
them a proper lesson on keeping teeth healthy. Make it a

family affair that's fun.
Turn on the tunes -- Allow the kids to brush along to their
favorite tunes. Songs typically last two to three minutes, the
ideal time needed for proper brushing. Plus, if they brush to a
favorite song, the enjoyment factor may make them more
likely to hit the bathroom to brush.
Clean competition -- Plan a family-friendly competition
once a week. Ask your dentist or pharmacy for little red pills
or tablets that you chew to see how clean teeth are after
brushing (known as disclosing tablets). Load up everyone's
toothbrushes with their favorite flavor of Fructodent
toothpaste, and brush away. After the allotted time, chew the
tablets and examine teeth. The one with the best results gets
a prize -- like a night out for pizza or a favorite toy.
Fructodent pastes are available at drug, food and discount
chains nationwide. Oral health was never this exciting!


Al~


Eliminate kicking and screaming at the bathroom sink. Show kids that brushing can be fun!

HEALTH NOTIFICATION



ARE YOU HARD OF HEARING?

A major name brand hearing aid provider wishes to field test a
remarkable new digital hearing instrument in the area. This offer is
free of charge and you are under no obligation.


These revolutionary 100% Digital instruments use the latest
technology to comfortably and almost invisibly help you hear more
clearly. This technology solves the "stopped up ears", and "head in a barrel"
sensation some people experience.


If you wish to participate, you will be required to have your hearing tested in
our office FREE OF CHARGE to determine candidacy and report your
results with the hearing instruments each week for a two week period.


At the end of this period, you may purchase your instrument, if you so desire, at a
reduced charge. Otherwise, there is no charge whatsoever for participating in

Lightning Season is here, and you need
our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This
program is aimed at helping to protect members
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
lightning strikes and other types of power surges and
spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful increases in
voltage which can damage or destroy household appliances and
electronics like computers, televisions, telephones, and more. Power
surges or spikes can be caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and
trees interfering with power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the base of
the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes 'and surges before they enter
the home. An additional level of protection is provided from surge
suppressers to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer a basic
level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific needs will
vary from family to family and members enrolled in this program can lease
additional surge protectors to suit their individual requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

Dear Classified Guys,
I'm divorced, remarried, and now I'm
thinking of starting a family with my
new husband. However, none of that
should matter when I go for a job
interview. I know that there are limits
as to what an interviewer can ask
me, but do they know that? On one
recent interview I was asked if start-
ing a family was important to me. I
couldn't tell whether it was just small
talk or an attempt to see if I was
going to be out on maternity leave.
What's the best way to handle that in
an interview? if I told him it
was illegal to ask, it would .'
probably put a stop to the
Whole interview. Do you -'.
guys have any suggestions?

Cash: You seem to be more
prepared than your future employer.
Maybe you should be applying for a job
in their HR department.
Carry: Today, there are many federal,
state and local laws in place that prevent
an employer from basing your employ-
ment on anything other than your work
experience or qualifications. However,
as you've experienced, people still make
mistakes that can leave you facing an
inappropriate question.
Cash: Like you mentioned, pointing
out the legalities may not be your best


option. If an interviewer asks a question
that seems inappropriate, you have many
responses that won't necessarily ruin the
interview.
Carry: Before you answer, take a
minute to collect your thoughts. If the
question doesn't bother you, you can
simply give a response. It's not illegal to
answer an inappropriate question. Just
realize that your answer could impact
their decision.
Cash: Another option is to inform the
interviewer that the question is inappro-
priate for the interview. However, a
response like this can be confrontational
and cause unnecessary tension, even if
done oolitelv.


Carry: Your best option may simply
be to sidestep the question. Quickly
assess what the interviewer is really ask-
ing you and divert the question back to
your commitment or qualifications for
dthejob.
Cash: For instance, if they asked you
about planning a family, you could
answer with something like, "It's always
a possibility, but right now I'm very
focused on my career."
Carry: It's important to remember that
many interviewers ask these questions
without realizing they are inappropriate.
If you can divert the question and contin-
ue a smooth discussion, you'll have a
much more successful interview.

The U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is
available to help fight discrimination. If
you believe that you have been discrimi-
nated against by an employer or during
the employment process based on your
race, color, sex, religion, national origin,
age, or disability, contact your nearest
EEOC office. To protect your rights,
there are very strict time frames in which
charges must be filed. For more infor-

Fruity Questions
"If you were a piece of fruit, which
fruit would you be?" If you think this
question is silly, you may be correct.
However, if faced with it during an inter-
view, avoid laughing. Although a ques-
tion like this may seem utterly ridiculous
to you, some interviewers find that it
offers some sort of insight into your per-
sonality. Take a minute to compose
yourself and give a ripe answer and a
good explanation. But be careful, it's
possible a poor choice in fruit could
squash your interview.

Sales Lead
On the day of my job interview, I
was well prepared. As the female
HR Manager asked the questions, I
answered every one with ease.
Toward the end of the interview
though, she started asking more per-
sonal questions like, "Do you like to
travel?" "How about cooking or
dancing?" When she finally came
out and asked if I was single, I had
enough.
I asked her flat out, "What does
this have to do with the job?"
"Oh you already have the job," she
replied. "But I thought we could dou-
ble date some of the single guys in
sales."
(Thanks to Melissa J.)
