As Hurricane Dennis
passed through Hamilton
County on Sunday, July 10,
the rainfall created unsafe
driving conditions on several
roads, including 1-75.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol traffic re-
port, Trooper Brian Creech
was completing a traffic
crash investigation report
while sitting in his patrol car
at 5:39 p.m. on Sunday. The
patrol car was parked in the
emergency lane of north-
bound 1-75, just south of the
Alapaha River, with the
emergency blue lights flash-

Drug Court to open

in Hamilton County


HURRICANE DENNIS BRINGS RAIN, WIND AND A TORNADO
Hurricane Dennis passed well to the west of Hamilton County on Sunday, July 10, bringing wet and windy weath-
er. Only minor damage was reported although a tornado touched down close to Noble's Ferry on CR 751. The tor-
nado was sighted in Suwannee County and crossed the Suwannee River into Hamilton County. This tree was blown
into the pool at Judi Sharpsteen's home on Suwannee Trails. The tornado also tore the roof off her carport and
caused some damage to the roof of her home. The only other report of damage caused by the tornado was that
the roof was blown off a hay barn in the same area. More pictures on 2A. (Photo Submitted)


Red Cross needs volunteers for hurricanes


County Court Judge R.B. Davis


By County Court Judge
R.B. Davis
The Department of Cor-
rections has recently ear-
marked $25,000 of Meridian
Health Care contracted ser-
vices to provide .a Drug
Court to participants in
Hamilton County. It is to
their credit that the Hamil-
ton County Commission re-
cently agreed to serve as the
grant requester and grant
money handler for a grant
applied for by the Third Ju-
dicial Circuit Court Admin-
istrator's Office. Both groups
want to fund the establish-
ment and maintenance of a
Drug Court in Hamilton
County. It will make a big
difference in the lives of the
residents of Hamilton Coun-
ty.
Drug Court is a special
type of court for drug of-
fenders. They must meet
certain criteria, may not be
traffickers or have a history
of violence, and must admit


and commit to overcome
their addiction. It has a suc-
cess rate of over 80%. Suc-
cess is measured by whether
the participants are still drug
free one year after successful
completion of the program.
This four-phased system,
which is designed to take
approximately a year, is dif-
ferent from other types of
Court programs in that it an-
ticipates a'relapse or setback.
It provides a way for that
person to continue in' the
program and actually work
oneself back to the level they
had achieved. I call that a
"grace provision", an "un-
deserved favor" that allows
them to remain in the pro-
gram. All other programs of
this nature have a "strike
one and you're out" provi-
sion.
Since drug addicted peo-
ple have a tremendous
struggle to overcome their

Food pantries now available each


week in Jasper for those in need


Due to a large increase in
the number of clients in
need of food over the last
year, the United Way of
Suwannee Valley opened
the Food Bank of Suwan-
nee Valley to give agencies
and church food pantries
better access to food to fill
their food pantries. The
Food Bank is a local sub-
sidiary distribution organi-
zation of Lutheran Social

Jasper City Manager seeking irIauniation on river rock roads around courthouse, post office


Jasper City Manager
Kent Cichon wants to pre-
serve part of Hamilton
County's unique histori-
cal heritage. The roads
around the Hamilton
'County Courthouse and
the Jasper Post Office
were once paved with riv-


er rock. The paving pro-
ject was part of the Works
Progress Administration
(WPA) established by
President Franklin Delano
Roosevelt. The WPA pro-
vided jobs for millions of
unemployed Americans
from 1935 through 1943.


On July 5, Cichon ex-
plained the significance of
the river rock roads to the
Hamilton County Board
of County Commission-
ers. He advised the board
that he would like to ap-
ply for a grant to restore
the roads in two phases -


around the courthouse
first and then around the
post office.
According to Cichon
many families in the
county have lived here
for generations and this a
good opportunity to pre-
serve part of their histo-


ry. He feels that restoring
the roads, instead of
paving over the river
rocks, will add to the ap-
peal of the downtown
area and help to bring it
back to life.
Cichon is trying to col-
lect as much information


as possible for the appli-
cation process about the
river rock paving project
and when it was complet-
ed. Anyone with any in-
formation concerning the
road paving may contact
him at the Jasper City
Hall or call 792-1212.

Spirit of the Suwannee provided

free camping to hurricane evacuees


More than a thousand peo-
ple from the Panhandle, as
well as central and south
Florida, sought refuge from
Hurricane Dennis at the Spir-
it of the Suwannee Music
Park, a 700 acre camping and
music resort near Live Oak.
The park offered free camp-
ing to evacuees seeking safe-
ty and respite from possible
hurricane damage.
Spirit of the Suwannee Mu-
sic Park owner and CEO
James Comett said, "This is
the second year we have of-
fered free camping to hurri-
cane evacuees. Our staff is
wholeheartedly behind this
effort and is making our
neighbors from throughout
the state feel welcome here at
the Park." Comett noted that
following the response to last
year's free camping offer to
hurricane evacuees, "we are
very blessed to again be in a
position to offer this service
to our neighbors. My staff
and I are hopeful that in a
small way this gesture will
make this trying time for
these folks a little less stress-
ful."
The scene of people enjoy-
ing themselves under a
peaceful canopy of North
Florida oaks and pines was
very different from the con-
gested interstates most peo-
ple traveled to get to the park.
Many people expressed grat-
itude for the Park's offer and
that they were in a safe place.
One lady from Panama City
said that she and her friend
had headed east in their RV
with no idea where to go oth-


er than away from the threat
of the season's first hurri-
cane. "We couldn't believe it
when we called the Park and
they told us camping was
free for hurricane evacuees.
When everyone else is rais-
ing prices to take advantage
of the situation, it's incredible
that the Park would do this."
She said that she lives right
on the beach in Panama City
and was thankful to wait out
the storm at the Park.
Several couples from west
Florida were here last year
and said they knew right
away that they would head
back to the Park to seek safe-
ty. One lady from Escambia


County said-that many peo-
ple in state government
were warning about price
gouging during this time.
She was stunned that the
Park, on the other hand, was
actually offering camping at
no charge for hurricane
evacuees.
The Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park and Camp-
ground is located between I-
75, Exit 451, and 1-10, Exit
283, on Hwy. 129, near Live
Oak. The Park has over 800
improved campsites and lit-
erally thousands of primi-
tive sites. In addition, the
Park has over 15,000 square
feet of newly constructed


enclosed shelter space, built
to withstand winds of ap-
proximately 100 mph. The
Park is situated on some of
the highest land near the
Suwannee River and is ap-
proximately 100 miles in-
land. Pets, including horses,
are welcome.
The regularly scheduled
Saturday on the Suwannee
series, featuring the Sun
Country Jamboree, is certain
to offer stress-relieving en-
tertainment for evacuees,
season ticket holders and
area residents. For addition-
al information, call 386-364-
1683 or www.musi-
cliveshere.com.

struck the left rear comer of
the patrol car. As her vehicle
continued its rotation, the
left front side sideswiped the
left rear side of the patrol car.
Tolbert's vehicle then disen-
gaged from the patrol car
and continued its clockwise
rotation coming to a final
rest in the center lane of 1-75
facing southeast.
Several other vehicles be-
gan sliding after the initial
crash resulting in two more
crashes.
During this time, Trooper
Creech ran from his patrol
car to Tolbert's car and


found that she had suffered
injuries to her face and foot.
She was unable to exit from
her vehicle, so Trooper
Creech removed her from
the vehicle and carried her
across the guardrail to safe-
ty. He continued first aid un-

Trooper Creech and Tol-

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the

bad to the defendants and to
maintain judicial oversight
necessary under our system
of justice.
The great thing about
Drug Court is that very
rarely is there a disagree-
ment on how to proceed. It
can impose sanctions from
additional community ser-
vice up to serving time in jail
and ejection from the pro-
gram. Sometimes a person
cannot stay in the program
for one reason or another
and they are returned to cir-
cuit court for sentencing.
Since they must plead guilty
in order to gain entrance into
Drug Court it is merely a
matter of determining their
sentence once they leave.
Meridian Healthcare
counselors will begin by pro-
viding services in Columbia
and Suwannee Counties and
they plan to ultimately pro-
vide the services in Hamil-
ton County, probably in
Jasper at the Virgie Cone
Center. This will provide the
additional benefit to the
county of having qualified
personnel in the county who
can provide other types of
counseling now.required by
law, such as anger manage-
ment, batterers interven-
tions, marriage and individ-
ual counseling.
What is needed immedi-
ately are-people and places
to establish and conduct Al-
coholic Anonymous and
Narcotic Anonymous meet-
ings within Hamilton
County. Attendance at AA
and NA meetings are re-
quired and are crucial to the
participants' success. If
your church or meeting
place has space for a small
number (5-10-20) of people
to meet and deal with their
problems please call my of-
fice (386-792-1220) and pro-
vide us with the contact in-
formation.
Drug Court is not a cure
all. The best medicine is the
preventative medicine of
good positive programs in
the schools and pre-schools
warning of the dangers of
drug use together with the
de-glamorization of drugs.
The deadliness of drug ad-
diction is well documented.
It will take prevention, pun-
ishment and rehabilitation
to successfully rid our com-
munity of the many detri-
.mental effects of drug addic-
tion. Drug Courts are an im-
portant part of the entire ille-
gal drug battle plan.

Tips on how to stay

safe during a tornado


In an average year, 1,000
tornadoes are reported in the
United States, resulting in 80
deaths and more than 1,500
injuries. The National
Weather Service (NWS) de-
fines tornadoes as violently
rotating columns of air ex-
tending from a thunderstorm
to the ground.
During the spring and
summer months, tornadoes,
mild or severe, are a fairly.
common occurrence in Flori-
da. A recent twister north of
Tampa caused damage to
dozens of homes and busi-
nesses. Although tornadoes
can develop at any time of
the year, the peak season is
March through August.


Tornadoes are unpre-
dictable. They can move er-
ratically and suddenly
change directions. While
most tornadoes have winds
of less than 100 miles an
hour, they can be much
stronger. Violent tornadoes
account for only two percent
of all tornadoes, but cause
seventy percent of all torna-
do deaths.
To help create a tornado
safety plan, the Allstate In-
surance Company offers
some critical points to re-
member. Know the differ-
ence between a warning and
a watch.
A tornado watch is a NWS
alert of the possibility of a


tornado. A warning is issued
when an actual tornado is oc-
curring.
Seek shelter. Basements
and storm cellars are best but
if not available find a small
room in center of building
such as a Closet or bathroom.
Stay clear of windows.
Don't try to outrun a torna-
do in a car. If in a car get out
and seek shelter. If in an open
area, lie face down and cover
head for protection of debris.
Keep a radio and flash-
lights ready. Whatever hap-
pens, stay calm.
For more information on
this and other safety topics,
visit an Allstate agent or go
online to www.allstate.com.

President orders disaster aid


for Florida hurricane victims


The head of the U.S. De-
partment of Homeland Se-
curity's Federal Emergency
Management Agency
(FEMA) announced that
President Bush has ordered
the release of federal disas-
ter funds and emergency re-
sources for Florida to aid
people ravaged by Hurri-
cane Dennis.
According to Michael
Brown, Under Secretary of
Homeland Security for
Emergency Preparedness
and Response, emergency
assistance triggered by the
declaration can range from
the use of federal personnel,
equipment and lifesaving
systems to the delivery of
heavy-duty generators,
plastic sheeting, tents, cots,
food, water, medical aid
and other essential supplies
and materials for sustaining
human life.
Along with emergency


aid, the declaration makes
federal funds available for
the long-term recovery of
storm-stricken residents
and business owners in the
hard-hit counties of Escam-
bia and Santa Rosa.
The assistance, to be coor-
dinated by FEMA, can in-
clude grants to help pay for
temporary housing, home
repairs and other serious
disaster-related expenses.
Low-interest loans from the
U.S. Small Business Admin-
istration also will be avail-
able to cover residential and
business losses not fully
compensated by insurance.
Additionally, the state
and affected local govern-
ments and certain private
non-profit organizations in
13 counties are eligible to
apply for federal funds to
pay 75 percent of the ap-
proved costs for debris re-
moval and emergency pro-


tective services related to
the hurricane, including re-
quested emergency work
undertaken by the federal
government.
The 13 counties designat-
ed for the assistance include
Bay, Calhoun, Escambia,
Franklin, Gulf, Holmes,
Jackson, Monroe, Okaloosa,
Santa Rosa, Wakulla, Wal-
ton and Washington
FEMA prepares the na-
tion for all hazards and
manages federal response
and recovery efforts follow-
ing any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitiga-
tion activities, trains first re-
sponders, works with state
and local emergency man-
agers, and manages the Na-
tional Flood Insurance Pro-
gram and the U.S. Fire Ad-
ministration. FEMA became
part of the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security on
March 1, 2003.


Pet safety during hurricane season


Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Charles Bronson is
reminding residents to take
steps to protect their homes,
pets, and livestock now that
the 2005 hurricane season is
under way.
"After last year's horrific
hurricane season, people
are taking storm prepara-
tions very seriously," Bron-
son said. "But while people
are stocking up on batteries,
food and water, we want to
be sure other critical issues
are also addressed, includ-
ing their animals."
The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services includes the
Division of Animal Indus-
try, which assists citizens in
evacuating livestock, pro-
vides assistance to farmers
after a storm, and helps peo-
ple find pet-friendly shelters


and hotels.
Bronson is providing
some tips for residents to
use to prepare for the hurri-
cane season to protect their
pets. Keep ID tags and vac-
cinations up to date. Pre-
pare a pet survival kit that
includes food for two
weeks, a manual can open-
er, medications, a pet carri-
er, bedding, and vaccina-
tion records.
If planning to board a pet,
make written arrangements
in advance, well before a
storm threatens. Contact
hotels and motels along
evacuation route to check
policies on accepting pets
and keep the list handy.
Horses and livestock vac-
cinations and other health
requirements need to be
kept up to date. If possible,
arrange in advance for
evacuation of horses and


know where horses can be
placed for shelter along the
evacuation route. Keep
horse trailers in "ready to
go" mode or have other
transport arrangements
prepared well in advance.
Do not leave without vacci-
nation records and health
papers.
If not evacuating, make
sure animals have access to
high ground in case of
flooding. Check all gates,
fences and enclosures for
loose parts and overall stur-
diness. Secure equipment,
small sheds and other items
that may become flying de-
bris and injure animals.
The Humane Society of
the United States (HSUS)
has prepared a helpful
brochure "Disaster Pre-
paredness for Pets," that can
be accessed on the web at
www.hsus.org/ ace /18732.

PAGE 4A THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL THURSDAY JULY 14, 2005


Dear Editor;
Now that Dennis has passed and the clean-up begins
there is one thing startlingly obvious. There are almost no
skilled tradespeople to do the work that needs to be done.
This is not new, just more pronounced now. It has been
increasing for a number of years. There is a solution, a
very simple one at that.
Not every high school freshman will go on to college; in
fact, many will not graduate. Has anyone ever seriously
thought about teaching these' children the basics of a
trade? Instead of only FCAT and college prep courses,
why not also offer vocational training. Mechanics can
make over $50,000 a year, plumbers over $100,000. That's
more then most college grads will ever make a year. Yet
every day hundreds of potential plumbers, carpenters,
mechanics, electricians, nurses aides (very needed in
Florida) and the like drop out of school. Why? FCAT, col-
lege prep classes that are useless to them and they have no
other choice. Why not have vocational education and an
FVCAT (Florida Vocational Comprehensive Achieve-
ment Test) as well a- what we have now\? We would gain
in two ways. Fir-t x\ e d have tradespeople to do the work
we need done. second we could almost eliminate
dropouts. Kids would tealhze that they have a viable fu-
ture, not just fast tood job.. or selling drugs. They would
be able to make good money doing honest work. Society
would gain in that we W\\ouldn't have to support them (ei-
ther on welfare or in aill, the)' would have self-respect
and, most importantly, money to enjoy the American
dream with dignity.
Vocational education is not new. It worked very well in
the 1950's. But most of that era's tradespeople are retiring
now. Who will take their place? At the present rate, al-
most no one. Remember, hands on lobs like carpentry,
plumbing and such can't be outsourced. They have to be
done here. Let's be sure we have enough trained Ameri-
cans to do them.

Spiritual


Guidance
By Pastor Jerry Thomason
Harvest Fellowship Church


Hurricane force winds


It has always been inter-
esting to me to hear how
God punished or blessed
someone or someplace
through the forces of na-
ture. Insurance compa-
nies even call them "acts
of God". Now that hurri-
cane season is upon us I
can assure you that many
people will be praying to
God to divert the storms
away from them and their
property. But have you
ever thought about those
people that the storm hits.
What did they do to de-
serve such punishment? I
can also assure you that
there were Christians af-
fected by the storm who
were praying just as hard
for it to go some place
else. What about last
year's hurricane season,
was there any part of
Florida that wasn't affect-
ed by the storms and we
all were praying they
would go away?
I think we blame God
for much more than He is
responsible for. We blame
things like storms, earth-
quakes and fires on God
because we can't figure
out why such devastation
comes our way from time
to time. God said that we
should be keen to hear
Him and get His message
when He speaks to us but
that He isn't necessarily
trying to say something to
us every time a storm
comes along.
Elijah wanted to hear
God and thought he could
hear Him through nature


but God said: "Go out and
stand on the mountain be-
fore the Lord. And be-
hold, the Lord passed by,
and a great and strong
wind tore into the moun-
tains and broke the rocks
in pieces before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in
the wind; and after the
wind an earthquake, but
the Lord was not in the
earthquake; and after the
earthquake a fire, but the
Lord was not in the fire;
and after the fire a still
small voice." Suddenly a
voice came to him, and
said, "What doest thou
here, Elijah?" (1 Kings
19:11-14).
I think what God is try-
ing to tell us is that we are
looking for Him in the
wrong places and blaming
Him for things He is not
responsible for. Yes, God
can affect the weather but
He also says that we
Christians will experience
the same consequences
that are "common to
mankind" (1 Cor: 10:13).
Wind, earthquakes, and
fire are common on earth
and more common in
some areas of the earth
than others. Just because
we are Christian we can-
not expect to be exempt
from a hurricane if we
chose to live in an area
common to hurricanes.
God wants to talk to us
but it should not take hur-
ricane force winds to get
our attention. Listen for
His still small voice in
your every day life.

Follow the "5D's" for mosquito protection


The Department of
Health officials continue to
stress the "5 D's" for mos-
quito protection.
Dusk and dawn are to be
avoided. Being outdoors at
these times is when mos-
quitoes are seeking blood.
Dress in clothing that cov-
ers the skin.
Use DEET. Use mosquito
repellents that include
DEET on skin. For added


protection apply repellent
directly to clothing when
outside. DEET is not recom-
mended for children
younger than two months
old. Avoid exposing babies
to mosquitoes.
Draining water or stand-
ing water is a haven for
mosquitoes to lay eggs.
Check to see if this is occur-
ring so the water can be
drained.


Elimination of breeding
sites is one of the keys to
prevention. To get rid of
such sites make sure to
clean out eaves, troughs
and gutters. Remove old
tires or drill holes in those
used in playground to
drain.
Turn over or remove
empty plastic pots. Pick up
all drink containers and
cups. Change water in plant


trays, including hanging
plants, at least once a week.
Check traps on boats or
other equipment that may
collect water. Pump out
bilges on boats.
Replace water in bird-
baths and pet or other ani-
mal feeding dishes at least
once a week. Remove vege-
tation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that pre-
vent the flow of water.

Summer sun safety


Precautions must be
taken to avoid sunburn
and skin injuries. Expo-
sure to the sun's ultra-vio-
let (UV) rays is the lead-
ing environmental factor
in the progression of skin
cancer. Liberal use of sun-
screen with a sun protec-
tion factor (SPF) of 15 or
greater is recommended
to prevent sunburn.
Other ways to be pro-
tected from sunburn are to


seek shade under shelter
such as a tree or umbrella,
covering up with light-
weight clothing, wearing a
hat to protect face, scalp,
neck and ears. Wear sun-
glasses that deter UV rays.
Individuals particularly
sensitive to the sun, may
want to avoid exposure
between the peak sun
hours of 10 a.m. until 3
p.m., even on cloudy
days.


Home inventory speeds

recovery after a storm


If a home is damaged or
destroyed in a storm, an ac-
curate and up-to-date home
inventory can help make the
possible recovery process
easier on everyone. There are
six steps to a home inventory.
Make sure the home inven-
tory list. includes pho-
tographs or video of belong-
ings. If a home video camera
is owned, take periodic
videos of each room in the


house. Focus on individual
items in each room, or take
additional video of smaller
items like jewelry, silver, and
related valuables or keep-
sakes. Be thorough when tak-
ing pictures of belongings.
Include with any picture
or video home inventory
list, a detailed, written ac-
count of what is owned. Be
very specific. Whenever
possible include make,


model, serial number, re-
ceipts, and date of purchase
for all items in the home in-
ventory.
If there are no pictures or
video, a written home in-
ventory list is better than no
inventory. Make sure it is as
detailed as possible.
Store the list away from
the home. If possible, put it
in a bank safety deposit box,
or ask a friend or relative to
keep it for you. Don't keep it
to far so that it can be acces-
sible but not so close the
storm will effect it too.
SUpdate the list after any
major purchase or gift. Do
this periodically anyway,
but take extra time at holi-
days and birthdays.
Share the list with the
company who insures the
house. Make sure that the
insurance meets the needs
that the home will need to
be covered for.


SIncludes Frame and Single Vision lenses. Offer only
good for Lake City Store. Some restrictions apply.
Coupon required. Regular price $49.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


As of this writing we
have weathered the storm
with no serious conse-
quences, thankful again
that we live in Hamilton
County. We are blessed
that there has not been any
serious damage right
around us. Others have
suffered so much. We feel
especially sad for those
who had not yet recuperat-
ed from Ivan's effect last
year. The past week has
been one in which televi-
sion has been centered
around London, Dennis,
missing children. It is all so
sad. Our prayers are with
those who have suffered
such losses.
My long weekend began
on Thursday morning,
leaving Jasper for
Charleston, SC, with Ben,
Leigh Ann, Trey and
Kaleigh for a Norris family
reunion. It is held each
year on the weekend after
the 4th of July, returning to
Charleston for the second
year. There is a rumor that
it may be back in Florida
next year. The weather had
been a concern as it seems
hurricanes usually hit
Charleston. We had a hard
rain for a little while Fri-
day afternoon. The reunion
was held in the hotel
where we were staying so
there wasn't a problem.
We had taken a trip down-
town to the SC Aquarium
earlier. There was unbe-
lievable displays of sea life
and growth. As usual we
look for good food, always
to be found in Charleston.
At my best estimate we
had about 40 at the family
dinner ages three months'
to 81 years. It was a great
weekend. After coming
around Jacksonville it
started to rain just before
we 'got home and were
thankful to get home safe
and sound.


There was no electricity
at my home when I got
here, so we continued to
Ben's but having made
calls to neighbors (aren't
they great) they notified us
soon that the power was
back on (thankful to have a
home to come back to).
Jim and Jo Coe, Nan
Hamm and Emily Carter
spent several days in Ken-
tucky visiting with Jo's
cousins on both sides of
her family. First they spent
one night at Dale Hollow
State Park and Inn then
went to stay a few days at
the home of Jo's sister,
Nancy Buchanan. They
then had gatherings in
Burkesville. They were
back in Jasper in time to
get to church on Sunday
morning. While there,
there was a dedication of a
window in a hotel in
Burkesville in honor of
Jim's father, Escar O. Coe,
for the part he played in
the history of Burkesville.
Mr. Escar, as he was affec-
tionately known, was a
riverboat captain before
becoming postmaster, I
think he was the last river-
boat captain in the area. He
was a special man and cer-
tainly deserved recogni-
tion. They did not realize
the dedication was taking
place, as it had been
planned for a different
date and they couldn't at-
tend, and they were disap-
pointed to miss the cere-
mony, but did get to see
the window.
In the pulpit Sunday
morning at Jasper Presby-
terian Church, in the ab-
sence of the pastor, was
Rev. Cecil Fenfrock, who
was a minister for 40 years,
retired and lives in Valdos-
ta. He pastored churches in
the Midwest, and was
probably considered to be
from Colorado, now lives


in the South. He is a friend
of Jim Coe's. As we were
out of town, we did not get
to hear him but under-
stand the congregation ap-
preciated his message. We
are always fortunate to re-
ceive blessings when it is
necessary to secure a guest
speaker.
Also in the absence of
the minister, the executive
secretary of the Pres-
bytery, Paul Hooker will
be the speaker on Sunday,
July 18.
The Pennington family
reunion was held over the
4th of July weekend with
the family gatherings at
the Pennington farm and
at Juda Pennington's
home in Jasper, they had
about as many as we did.
Juda said it was great and
busy, she said she slept for
about three days after it
was over.
'My sister, Martha and
her husband Mike Gibson
came by Wednesday morn-
ing on their way from
Crystal River to Franklin. I
told them if they had come
at any other time they
would have had a passen-
ger. It has been over a year
since I have been to
Franklin. That is the
longest time I have been
away since moving to


Florida.
A friend from Franklin
called Sunday evening af-
ter I got home to see if we
were OK here; she and her
husband are the only cou-
ple, both living, of our
group who were class
mates for get-togethers in
the past and they are the
only ones left in Franklin.
We keep in touch and they
call often to check on me.
She mentioned a brother of
hers who was moving from
NC to Stuckey, SC, it
brought to mind the Stuck-
eys Shops that were along
tourist roads in the past,
where you stopped to
shop, (I loved their pecan
rolls with a nougat center).
My friend said that Stuck-
ey, SC, is where the mem-
bers of the Stuckey fame
make their home. Just a lit-
tle tidbit I picked up from a
friend. Remember the dif-
ferent flavors of ice cream
at Howard Johnsons! Good
memories!
As I was getting ready to
send this to the Jasper
News, I could hear thun-
der and the wind starting,
guess it will be raining, I
was planning to put up my
flag but guess I will wait.
Hope all of you are hav-
ing a good and busy sum-
mer, call me at 792-2151.


Learn how to design

handmade knotted lace


Learn the art of making
delicate hand-knotted
lace using a needle in a
class on Saturday, July 23
at Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park
from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Lace-maker Nancy
Traver will instruct the
class covering the basic
stitch used in tatting, how
to determine the best nee-
dle to use with various
kinds of thread, and com-
pletion of one project.
The $20 fee includes all
materials and park ad-
mission.
Tatted lace typically


employs a small shuttle
carrying a needle and
thread to construct a se-
ries of knots and loops.
This class substitutes a
needle for the traditional
shuttle, and includes an
introduction to the vari-
ous threads and needles
that can be used in tat-
ting.
To register for the class,
call Craft Square at 397-
1920 or visit the web at
www.StephenFosterC-
SO.com. To learn more
about the park visit

rg / stephenfoster.


Tips for

conserving

water


A homeowner can save
water by using an auto-
matic irrigation system. If
the irrigation system is
correctly designed, in-
stalled and maintained, it
will help minimize the
amount of water needed
to keep a lawn and land-
scape looking healthy.
The experts at Rain Bird
Corporation, a world
leader in the irrigation in-
dustry, provide some
practical tips to provide a
lush, green landscape
while using less water.
The greatest waste of
water comes from apply-
ing too much, too often;
much of the water runs
off and is never absorbed.
Instead of watering for
one long continuous ses-
sion, try splitting the wa-
tering time into shorter
periods and take 15-
minute breaks in between
each session. This will al-
low water to soak in,
while minimizing runoff.
Water between 5 a.m.
and 10 a.m., when the sun
is low, winds are calm
and temperatures are
cool. Midday watering
tends to be less efficient
because of water loss due
to evaporation and windy
conditions during the
day. Watering in the
evening isn't a good idea
either because leaves can
remain wet overnight-an
open invitation for fun-
gus to grow. By watering
in the morning, leaves


have a chance to dry out
during the day.
Different plants need
different amounts of wa-
ter. Divide the yard and
landscape areas into sepa-
rate irrigation zones so
that grass can be watered
separately and more fre-
quently than groundcov-
ers, shrubs and trees.
Make sure the sprinkler
heads are adjusted prop-
erly to avoid watering
sidewalks and driveways.
A properly adjusted
sprinkler head should
spray large droplets of
water instead of a fine
mist to minimize evapo-
ration and wind drift.
When it comes to water-
ing individual trees,
flowerbeds, potted con-
tainers, or other non-
grassy areas, consider ap-
plying water directly to
the roots using low vol-
ume drip irrigation. This
will reduce water waste
through evaporation or
runoff, and will prevent
unwanted weeds from
growing.
Periodically check the
sprinklers to make sure
everything is working
properly. A clogged head
or a torn line can wreak
havoc on the landscape
and water bill.
Adjust the irrigation
system as the seasons and
weather change. Or better
yet, install a shut-off de-
vice that automatically
detects rain or moisture.

SBA loans available for real



estate, industrial equipment


'Sifall business owners in
Florida face a unique op-
portunity. The rare combi-
nation of a white-hot com-
merci al real estate market
witl- historically low inter-
est rates for one of the U.S.
Small Business Adminis-
trafion's (SBA) most popu-
lar;joan programs is creat-
irig a once-in-a-generation
?o rtunity for small busi-
rt neowners to buy their
owr 'real estate or industri-
al! equipment.
When small business
0-eFrs go to banks and
otier private-sector
le ers for financing, they
qoft have difficulties with
t ~f"criteria and down pay-
mieit requirements for
standard commercial real
estate and equipment
loans. As a result, they
make do with space and
rrnjztinery that does not
fully meet their needs,
which hinders their ability
trreach their fullest poten-
tial and advance the Flori-
d'i'economy.
-One of the SBA's largest
ard 'most appealing financ-
iig 'options for businesses
is the "504" loan program,
which in Florida is offered
edclisively by a handful of
SBA' Certified Develop-


ment Companies (CDC).
"These institutions work
with small business own-
ers and private-sector
lenders to create govern-
ment-backed financing
packages at terms that are
significantly better than
those that are available
through the private sector
alone," explains Todd Ko-
courek of Florida First
Capital Finance Corpora-
tion, the largest non-profit
CDC in the state. "The 504
loan program offered
through the state's CDCs is
extremely popular because
most small businesses in
Florida qualify, and the
loans are reserved exclu-
sively for two of the most
common business financ-
ing needs: real estate and
fixed assets, such as ma-
chinery and equipment."
504 borrowers must be a
for-profit business in Flori-
da with a tangible net
worth below $7 million
and average after-tax prof-
its below $2.5 million per
year for the previous two
years. Most types of busi-
nesses that meet these cri-
teria are able to qualify,
and most types of proper-
ties are eligible.
Aside from its low inter-


est rates, one of the loan's
most appealing features for
small businesses is its re-
quirement of only a 10 per-
cent down payment from
the borrower. Most con-
ventional lenders typically
require 20 percent or more,
which is often too large of a
sum for the business owner
to provide. They are typi-
cally combined with a stan-
dard loan from a private
lender for 50 percent of the
total project cost, along
with the contribution of 10
percent from the borrower.
The CDC underwriting the
504 portion provides the
remaining 40 percent at be-
low-market rates that are
only available through the
SBA. The loans are fixed-
rate for 10- and 20-year
terms.
504 loan interest rates
have fallen to 5.86 percent,
a 15-month low (and the
fourth lowest rate in histo-
ry), despite the Federal Re-
serve Board's recent rais-
ing of the federal funds
rate.
For more information on
SBA 504 loans in Northeast
Florida, call Kristen Tack-
ett at 904-334-0651, e-mail

Information, services available


with three

Virtually every telephone
user knows that dialing the
digits 800 to initiate a call in-
sure, a toll-free phone call.
Equally recognizable are the
digits 911, which when di-
aled, give consumers a di-
r~Utine to an emergency
sievices operator. Other
three-digit codes are used in
many communities in Flori-
da to provide a range of ser-
vices.
Community information
and referral services can be
accessed by dialing 211 in
some communities in Flori-
da; Potential users can check
http:/ / flairs.org/ flori-
da211networkplan.htm for a
listing of active 211
providers. In Hamilton
County, the United Way
provides free information
and referrals to health, social
and human services.
'The 311 code is reserved
fSr non-emergency police
and other governmental ser-
vices. In communities where
this code is in use, it pro-
vides residents with a sim-
ple way of gaining access to


digit phone codes


local law enforcement in cir-
cumstances that lack ur-
gency or to local govern-
ment services deemed ap-
propriate by city or county
officials. In extreme circum-
stances, such as hurricanes,
the 311 code may be used
when local 911 emergency
numbers are overloaded.
This code is not available in
Hamilton County.
Most consumers recog-
nize the 411 code as provid-
ing local directory assis-
tance. At one time, calls to
411 were free. However,
customers should check to
determine what their calling
plan charges for this service.
The Florida Department
of Transportation imple-
ments and administers the
511 service in the state,
which, like the 211 code, is
not in use statewide. In parts
of Florida where the code is
in use mostly major mar-
kets callers can receive
travel information. This
code is not available in
Hamilton County.
The 611 code is assigned


to local phone companies to
provide customers access to
telephone repair services.
The 711 code is used to
gain access to the Florida
Tele-communications Relay
Service. This system, created
by the Legislature in 1991,
provides access to the
telecommunications net-
work for individuals with
speech, hearing or dual sen-
sory disabilities.
The 811 code currently
provides access to the busi-
ness offices of the local ser-
vice company, but this may
change in the next few years.
Through the Pipeline Safety
Improvement Act of 2002,
Congress mandated the es-
tablishment of a three digit
nationwide toll-free number
for states to use for a one -
call notification system. An
advisory group to the Feder-
al Communications Com-
mission has recommended
the use of 811.
Probably the most recog-
nized of the three-digit
codes, 911, is for emergency
services only.

, 1 By Johnny Bullard


We live in an uncertain,
unsettled world from the
winds of hurricane Dennis
pounding the west coast
of Florida to bombs of ter-
rorists exploding in Lon-
don and truthfully, there
is little we can do about it
except one major thing.
Pray. God hears the
prayers of His children,
but we must remember
that "God's will" and
"our will" may not be the
same "will" and being hu-
man we have a difficult
Time accepting anything
contrary to what we want.
Let's keep our fellow
Floridians who have suf-
fered much at the hands
of hurricane Dennis and
other hurricanes in our
Sprayers, and let's keep
those in London and
around the world who are
Victims of terrorism in our
prayers.
I am not a Bible scholar,
but the word of God
S plainly tells us, and I
don't mean to be a dooms-
S day predictor, that there
will be "wars and rumors
of wars" until the end of
time. Most wars have at
S their very base a very ugly
five-letter word called
"greed." The one we are
in at present is no excep-
tion. Let's keep our na-
tion's leaders and, indeed
our world leaders, in our
prayers, and let's keep our
men and women serving
in our nation's military in
our prayer. God bless
America!!!
I didn't make it up to
the Fourth of July fire-
works in Jasper, but I did
hear the friendly, reassur-
ing, and familiar voice 'of
our "own" Jack Vinson
pouring out over the radio
waves on Monday after-
noon as he extolled the
highlights of our Chamber
of Commerce, our Fourth
of July Celebration, and
our own "beloved"


Hamilton County.
I traveled down to St.
Augustine on Thursday,
July 7 and spent a couple
of days at the beach with
my brother, sister in law,
and niece. We shared
many visits with Jeff and
Brenda Kay Vinson and
family of Lake Park, Ga.;
Norma Jean Combass,
Kim Combass Steichen
and daughters,
Georgeann Sapp of Dou-
glas, Ga.; Mike and Jill
Adams and family, Jay
and April Bass with son
Anson, and Ronnie and
Tracy Brannon of Lake
City.
What a delightful time
we all shared. As I was sit-
ting by the pool on Friday
evening, I heard a familiar
voice from the past say
"Johnny Bullard." I imme-
diately responded "Nan-
cy." It was Nancy Gardner
of Jacksonville, who
worked with me at Cen-
tral for a number of years.
Nancy and her husband,
the late Coach Barry
Gardner and son Jarrod
lived in Jasper for a num-
ber of years. Nancy is still
living in Duval County
and teaching Hospital
Homebound Students.
Jarrod, she related to me,
lives in Atlanta and works
for a major telecommuni-
cations company there. It
was great sharing a short
visit with Nancy. Good
memories.

I wish someone in the

and the Town does a lot,
and I am proud of our
town, would start a fund
to erect a monument in
our little park, near the
water tower, in honor of
our Veterans, present,

monument would serve as
a reminder to all who
viewed it that our commu-
nity, always a patriotic
community was doing
something to honor those
who serve and are serving
the nation. As Virgie

The stately Mansion Wardlaw-Smith-Goza Conference Center in Madison is the set-
ting for many community and college events.

Membership drive for Friends

of the Mansion gets underway


The Wardlaw-Smith-
Goza Conference Center
- known locally as the
Mansion is holding a
membership drive to ex-
pand the Friends of the
Mansion support group.
"The support of
Friends is essential for
the continued preserva-
tion of our beautiful his-
toric house," said Maria
Greene, center coordina-
tor, "and, just as impor-
tantly, Friends of the
Mansion assure the suc-
cess of the many pro-
grams and activities held
at the Mansion." Accord-
ing to Greene, the activi-


ty level at the Mansion
has increased, which
translates into an in-
creased need for more
Mansion Friends.
The Mansion is the site
of an annual Christmas
Open House, exhibits,
tours and events hosted
by North Florida Com-
munity College (NFCC).
It is also the setting for
weddings and receptions
throughout the year.
Built in 1860, the confer-
ence center is listed in the
National register of His-
toric Places and is repre-
sentative of the classical
revival architectural style


popular during the nine-
teenth century. The state-
,ly two-story columned

Wendy Knighton receives Doctorate


of Veterinary Medicine from UF


The Knighton family
would like to announce the
graduation of Wendy
Knighton from the Univer-
sity of Florida, College of
Veterinary Medicine
(UFCVM). She is the
daughter of Joann and the
late Wyatt Knighton of Jen-
nings.
Dr. Knighton was Vale-
dictorian and a Summa
Cum Laude graduate of the
Hamilton County High
School Class of 1998. She
was accepted to the
UFCVM as a college fresh-
man in the fall of 1998
through the Early Admis-
sions Program that allowed
her to complete a Bache-
lor's degree and a Doctor-
ate in seven years rather
than the standard eight
years. She graduated with
honors from the UF College
of Agriculture and Life Sci-
ences with a Bachelor's De-
gree in Animal Sciences
with an emphasis on Ani-
mal Biology in May 2002. In
May of this year she re-
ceived her Doctorate of
Veterinary Medicine as a
Cum Laude graduate from
the University of Florida,
College of Veterinary Med-
icine.
The Knightons are the
managers of the Reid Fami-
ly Partnership Farm in Jen-


nings. Growing up on a
farm and tending to the an-
imals was a big part of Dr.
Knighton's decision to be-
come a veterinarian. She
knew from a very early age
that veterinary medicine
was her true calling and
never even considered an-
other career path. She was
also inspired by her par-
ents' love of animals. Since
the death of her father Wy-
att, in October of 2002, the
farm has been managed
jointly by her mother,
Joann, and her brother, Ter-
ry. Her youngest brother,
A.J., also helps on the farm
in his spare time from .his
day job as a welder. Tend-
ing to the land and God's
creatures has definitely
been a family affair.
Dr. Knighton received
the Clyde and Laura Spears
Rural Animal Medicine
Proficiency Award at the
UFCVM Awards Banquet
in.May. This award is pre-
sented to the graduating se-
nior veterinary student
who excels in food, animal
medicine, surgery and re-
production, and who
demonstrates the greatest
proficiency in rural animal
medicine. She is eager to
expand her knowledge
base in both large and
small animal medicine and

put her skills to good use.
Dr. Knighton will return
to Valdosta Veterinary
Hospital in Valdosta, Ga.,
as an associate veterinari-
an. She has been working
as a veterinary technician
with Drs. J.B. and Joe Crane
at the practice for the past


six years while attending
school. Valdosta Veterinary
Hospital is a mixed animal
practice currently seeing
mostly small animals.
However, Dr. Knighton
would like to expand the
large animal side of the
business.


Local school system personnel attend NFCC Education Summit


School superintendents
and personnel from Hamil-
toin; Jefferson, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor
counties met at North Flori-
da Community College for
a district-wide Education
Summit in April. Hamilton
County School Superinten-
dent Harry Pennington
was. among those attend-
img:.
"I appreciate the College
keeping its surrounding
counties informed and I
look forward to grooming


and developing this part-
nership," said Pennington.
"It was an excellent confer-
ence, well organized and
very receptive. I appreciate
the College listening to our
input."
According to NFCC Vice
President Doug Brown, the
Education Summit was an
ideal venue for discussion
of issues common to the K-
12 and community college
school systems with the
hope of strengthening suc-
cessful partnerships be-


tween those institutions.
"The summit was very
beneficial," said Penning-
ton. "I was looking forward
to the opportunity to meet
with other superintendents
and to address concerns we
all have."
NFCC President Morris
G. Steen Jr. welcomed par-
ticipants to the summit.
NFCC grant consultant
Phillip Mantzanas and in-

structor Enid M/azzone
gave a presentation on the
Educator Preparation Insti-


tute while Vice President
Brown led discussions on
the K-12 and community
college system.
The one-day summit is
one of many outreach ef-
forts by NFCC to help im-
prove the education system
and build community and
personal partnerships that
will benefit students.

dent Doug Brown at (850)

One Dozen
Hurricane Season
Tips
1. Following a power out-
age, unplug all of your large
appliances and electronics to
prevent power surges when
electricity is restored, which
can often damage equipment
and create fire hazards.
2. Remember the "three
don't" when using genera-
Stors: don't run a generator in
the house; don't run a gener-
ator in the garage; and, don't
plug the generator directly
into your home's main elec-
trical system. The first two
can lead to asphyxiation and
the third can send an electri-
cal charge back into the pow-
er grid, posing an electrocu-
tion hazard to utility work-
ers.
3. If your home is flooded,
turn off your electrical power
until a professional inspects
it thoroughly.
4. If you smell gas, evacu-
ate immediately and contact
your gas company's emer-
gency number.
5. Make sure you have
current identification. You
may have to pass through
identification checkpoints
before being allowed access
to your home or neighbor-
hood.
6. After the storm, check
to see if your home's weath-
erhead is damaged it is lo-
cated above the electric me-
ter. Utility workers cannot
reconnect service if this
piece of equipment -. which
is the homeowner's responsi-
bility is damaged. If your
weatherhead needs repair,
please .contact a licensed
electrician.
7. Utilities often cannot
respond to customers with
special needs during or im-
mediately after a storm.
When warned of an incoming
Storm, make an early deci-
sion to evacuate people with
special needs. Know the lo-
cation of special needs shel-
ters in case you are unable to
evacuate. If you or someone
in your family has special
electrical medical equipment
needs, notify your electric
S utility prior to a storm's ar-
S rival.
8. Visit www.FloridaDis-
aster.org.to determine your
hurricane evacuation route.
f 9. Capture water in your
Water heater by turning off
power to the unit and closing
the water valves. If you lose
water pressure, you will have
about 40 gallons of fresh wa-
S ter stored in the tank. Store
additional water in your
bathtub and fill the washing
machine with water. This wa-
ter supply can be used for
E cleaning or to operate your
toilet.
r 10. Clear your patio and
yard of lawn furniture, toys,
potted plants, and other de-
bris that could blow around
* in high winds and cause
damage or injury..
5 11. Prior to the storm,
identify the places around
B your home where to shut off
"P your gas, water and electrici-
l| ty. In an emergency, you'll
want to be able to turn them
5 off quickly.
12. Create a hurricane sur-

during and after," said Barry
Moline, executive director
of FMEA. "We strongly en-
courage Floridians to use
these tips. They will help

How to be a

healthy

vegetarian
People become vegetarians for an array of reasons. Some are
against the use of animals for food. Some do it to lose weight.
Some cite health reasons, as studies show vegetarianism can
prevent some types of cancer, high blood pressure and heart
disease. Others adopt the lifestyle for religious reasons. And
some people who just don't like meat decide to give it up
altogether.

Regardless of the reasons for becoming a vegetarian, it's
important to still maintain a healthy diet. Since many vegetarians
do not eat any meat, including chicken, beef, pork or fish (some
eat animal products like eggs, milk or bees' honey), it's crucial
for them to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains to get the right
amount of vitamins and nutrients. They should also avoid an
overload of eggs, cream, butter, cheese and other milk products
with high fat contents. Sources of protein like nuts and seeds are
also high in fat if consumed in large quantities. But by adhering
to some guidelines, it is possible to maintain a healthy vegetarian
lifestyle.

Milk: If you drink dairy products, choose fat-free milk. If you
use soy milk, drink a reduced fat, fortified version.

Cheese: Eat cheese sparingly, and when you do eat it, opt for
low-fat versions.

Fruits and vegetables: Eat as much food as possible in the raw
state since fruits and vegetables lose many nutrients during
cooking.


Protein: Since you aren't eating meat, you
protein in other ways. .Leguies,
tofu and tempeh will fill the
void. You can have nuts and
seeds like almonds, hazelnuts,
sesame seeds, sunflower seeds
and pumpkin seeds. Just don't
eat more than a handful a day.


have to get your


Snacks: Munch on snacks like
fruit, raw vegetables or dried
fruit. Avoid ones that are high
in fat or sugar. _

Condiments: Add
flavor with salsa, lemon
juice or vinegars instead
of mayonnaise, sour
cream, butter or
margarine.

Zinc: Whole grains,
fortified cereals, soy
foods and legumes
can give you this
vitamin, which
promotes growth and
a healthy immune
system.

Iron: Iron is good for
the blood. It is found in
beans, seeds, soy foods,
fortified breakfast
cereals and dark green
leafy vegetables like
spinach and kale.


Calcium: Calcium builds strong bones and helps the body
absorb iron. Look to citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits,
dairy products, dark green leafy vegetables and fortified soy
foods for calcium.

Vitamin D: Build strong bones from fortified dairy products and
soy milk.

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 an avid fan of the TV show,
Extreme Makeover Home Edition, but
building a house in seven days, let's
be real. If you want to call it a reality
show, feature a couple trying to build
it by themselves within seven years!
I've been staring at an unfinished
edition to our house since we started
it in 1998. We'd love to hire a general
contractor with a crew of 300 to fin-
ish it, but who can afford that?
Maybe if we opened a lemonade
stand on the corner, we could raise
$50,000 from the neighbors
to help out. Do you guys
have any realistic thoughts
on how to hire a contractor
to finish what we started?

Carry: That better be some really
good lemonade to raise $50,000.
Cash: I'm guessing that's why they
call the show "extreme". Where else
would someone be happy when 300
screaming people showed up on their
doorstep with sledgehammers?
Carry: As you've determined in the
past seven years, adding an addition can
be an overwhelming task, especially
when you take it on yourself.
Cash: There are a lot of options on
how to proceed with the construction,


TIE

CLASSIRm

GgYSG (



Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


1 ls7/10/05
@2005 The Classified Guys


but all of them depend on how you
budget for the project. The first thing
you might do is determine your finances
and cash flow for finishing the project.
Carry: Since you started the fenova-
tion yourself, we assume you have the
skills to finish it. However after seven
years, it's probably more difficult to find
the motivation. Once you've set a budg-
et for completing the project, your next
step may surface. If you find you have
enough money, you can hire a general
contractor to finish the entire job.
Cash: More likely though, your
budget may reveal your need to finish
the project using a combination of hired
services and your hard work. You can


do some of the work as time permits
and hire a professional to finish jobs
that are time consuming or overwhelm-
ing.
Carry: For instance, we both try to
avoid finishing sheetrock. We don't
mind hanging the wallboard, but when
it comes to spackling, we find it quicker
to hire the professionals.
Cash: As your own general contrac-
tor, you can organize the time line of
when projects need to be accomplished
and then hire the appropriate service for
each of the jobs.
Carry: And just think, when the job
is done, you'll have more time to enjoy
all that lemonade.

How'd They Do That?
According to Newsweek Magazine,
the producers of "Extreme Makeover
Home Edition" have added a twist to the
story to help homeowners with the tax
burden of receiving such a large prize.
The show leases the participants' homes,
paying $50,000 for 10 days' rental. Since
the IRS allows tax-free rentals of less
than 15 days, the homeowners avoid the
taxes on the $50,000. And by renting the
home, the producers believe the renova-
tions are tax-free under a "leaseholder
improvement" loophole that allows them
to make non-taxable renovations while
renting. So that's how they do that!
Think Big
According to the Guinness Book of
World Records, the most expensive house
ever built is called Hearst Castle in
California. William Randolph Hearst
started its construction in 1922 and fin-
ished in 1939, costing more than $30 mil-
lion. Today that's equivalent to over $276
million. The estate has over 90,000 sq. ft.
of living space including 56 bedrooms, 41
fireplaces, 61 bathrooms and 19 different
sitting rooms. And we thought it was dif-
ficult to keep our houses clean.

Living Large
I am a store clerk at one of those
huge home improvement centers and
I'm constantly amazed at how crazed
people are about fixing up their
homes.
Last weekend, I watched one couple
come in and pick out all sorts of high-
end items. The woman hunched over
the carriage as her husband went crazy
looking through the aisles.
"We can add crown molding," he
said. "Oh wow," he continued, "How
about hardwood floors?" Then I could
tell his wife had finally had enough.
As she reached into the carriage to
put stuff back, she corrected her hus-
band, "Honey what's wrong with you?
We're just building a tree house for
Bobby!"
Bobby!(Thanks to Jason P)
