Miss Florida Teen USA Victoria


Ratliff to compete
Victoria Ratliff, 2005 Miss Florida
Teen USA, was excited but composed as
she greeted guests during her Sending
Off Party on Tuesday, July 19. To the de-
light of the guests, she modeled several
outfits that she planned to wear at the
23rd Annual Miss Teen USA competi-
tion. Victoria and her family left for Ba-
ton Rouge, La., on Wednesday, July 20,
for the preliminary events of the
pageant.
As Florida's representative, she will
join other delegates from each of the 50
United States and the District of Colum-
bia. The pageant will be broadcast live
on NBC at 9 pm ET on Monday, Aug. 8.
The contestants will enjoy a schedule
of fun filled events in the days before
the pageant. Ratliff enjoys water parks
and hopes they go to the Blue Bayou
Water Park in Baton Rouge.
According to Ratliff this is the largest
pageant in which she has competed, but
she is not nervous ... yet. She enjoys the
challenge of the competition but admits


in Miss Teen USA
that the on-stage question causes her a
few tense moments. Although each con-
testant submits a question, only the fi-
nalists' questions will be used. The fi-
nalists won't learn which question they
will have to answer until the night of the
pageant.
Ratliff said that winning the Miss
Teen USA competition would open
more doors to her in the entertainment
field, so that she can pursue a career
writing and recording her own songs.
Cover Girl is offering fans an oppor-
tunity to help select the winner of the
Miss Teen USA pageant. Visit their web-
site, www.covergirl.com, between Fri-
day, July 29, and Wednesday, Aug. 3, to

DEP receives grant to assist water

facilities during hurricane season


Following the unprece-
dented 2004 hurricane sea-
son, the Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) secured $180,000 in
funding to help Florida's
drinking water and waste-
water facilities prepare for
and recover from disasters.
A web-based information
network established with
the federal grant is already
assisting utilities.
"Using the lessons learned
during the 2004 hurricanes,
water facilities are now bet-
ter prepared for storm con-
ditions," said DEP's Divi-
sion of Water Resource
Management Director Mimi


Drew. "Thorough and
thoughtful planning, along
with the sharing of re-
sources, can minimize prob-
lems and ensure an expedit-
ed recovery."
With the $180,000 federal
grant, DEP established the
Florida Water/Wastewater
Agency Response Network
(Florida WARN) at
www.flawarn.org. The vir-
tual clearinghouse for water
utilities facilitates the shar-
ing of emergency prepared-
ness and response equip-
ment like backup generators
along with information on
mutual aid.
In the wake of last year's

hurricanes, water facilities
across the state took monu-
mental strides to restore ser-
vices. Most affected drinking
water and wastewater facili-
ties in Florida were opera-
tional, serving customers and
protecting public health and
water resources in a matter of
hours or, at most, a few days.
Last year, widespread
power outages led to shut
downs of water utilities in
storm affected areas. Resi-
dents used alternative
sources of water until service
was restored. Altogether, 386
drinking water systems and
31 domestic wastewater facil-
ities were affected during the
2004 hurricane season.
DEP oversees more than
10,000 drinking water and
wastewater facilities in Flori-
da. The Florida WARN web-
site is managed by the
TREEO Center of the Univer-
sity of Florida under contract
from the DEP. For more in-

As we enter August, the
sights and sounds of sum-
mer are all around us. The
smell of the back yard bar-
b-cue, hazy mornings and
steamy afternoons, dotted
with the occasional toad
strangling summer thun-
der storm. I have noticed
that the "ole swimming
hole" at the 136 bridge is
getting a lot of use this
summer. Someone has re-
placed the rope in the old
cypress tree, and every af-
ternoon on my way home I
see many people enjoying
the waters. Somewhere I
have a photo of friends
and myself swinging from
the same tree in the late
sixties.
You have probably no-
ticed the construction
along US 41 throughout
town. This is the side walk
project sponsored by the
Department of Transporta-
tion, and is scheduled for
completion sometime in
early 2006. At the last
Council Meeting the Coun-
cil voted to sign the
$150,000 non-match Flori-
da Recreation Develop-
ment Assistance Grant for
the Suwannee River Way-
side Park on US 41 at the
bridge. The improvements
will include improving ex-
isting picnic facilities,
bathrooms, potable water,
and improvements to the
boat ramp. There are plans
to build a boardwalk down


to the river for fishing and
swimming. The official
ceremonial check signing
will be at 11 a.m., on Aug.
2, at Hamilton County
Court House.
Vice Mayor Ralph Hard-
wick invited a guest speak-
er to the meeting from, the
Hamilton County Pharma-
cy Assistance Program.
Robert Clark informed the
Council and audience of
the benefit of the Pharma-
cy Assistance Program in
helping with prescription
costs. Information can be
obtained at Town Hall,
and Robert plans to hold
workshops at the White
Springs Library soon.
Robert also informed the
Council that funding cuts
will require that all munic-
ipalities and Hamilton
County needs to consider a
$600 contribution to the
program to fund next year.
White Springs will be con-
sidering this contribution
in our budget this year and
I hope that all citizens will
work with their govern-
ments to also budget for
this important program.
Speaking of budgets the
Town Council will begin
holding workshops in Au-
gust to plan this year's op-
erating budget. I am sure
rumors will abound. If you

good financial shape; how-
ever just as your home op-
erating costs have in-
creased so has the towns.
I would like to commend
Glenn Richards and all the
members of the Hamilton
Housing for Humanity Or-
ganization for their hard
work. The Board has locat-
ed property in White
Springs for the first home
to be constructed. At the
first meeting we had over
fifty citizens from Hamil-
ton County. Clearly people
see the need for affordable
housing and are willing to
work to accomplish it.
If you have noticed two
new town employees
working around town,
they are Bryce Johnson and
Andrew Greene. Bryce and
Andrew needed summer
employment and the town
can always use the help,
and I must say they are
hard workers.
The John Graham Nature
Park will begin construc-
tion in August and the
town still needs volunteers
to help with the construc-
tion. If you can volunteer
to assist please contact
Kenny "Hpt" or town hall.
Thanks to Officer Steve
Bell and his inmate crew
for clearing the property
along US 41 for the Park.
Also thanks to Allen Tyre
for his assistance in identi-
fying the plants to be la-
beled in the park and his
personal cash donation.
When Tyre and I were lo-
cating the plants Allen
pointed out a type of tree
growing in the lot, that in
the past was used as a
tooth brush by people.
This promises to be an ex-
citing project, so please
volunteer and make this a
reality for all to enjoy.
More to come.

African honeybees invading Florida


African honeybees, also
known as killer bees, have en-
tered Florida, and a Universi-
ty of Florida researcher says
the aggressive insects may
eventually spread through-
out the state and move into
other areas of the southeast-
ern United States.
"The bees, which tend to
sting in large numbers, have
been found and stopped at
various Florida ports over the
past decade, but now it looks
like they're here to stay," said
Glenn Hall, an associate pro-
fessor of entomology at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. He said Flori-
*da's warm climate is ideal for
the bees, which could be bad
news for the state's $16 mil-
lion honeybee industry.
Although African and Eu-
ropean honeybees may look
the same to the untrained
eye, African bees are more
aggressive. African bees may
swarm as many as 16 times a
year while European bees
swarm about three times a
year.
Until recently, swarms en-
tering through ports such as
Jacksonville, Miami and
Tampa have been successful-


ly captured in bait hives
maintained by the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services.
"However, new finds in
the Tampa area suggest that
African bees are spreading
and becoming established in
the state, and they are being
found farther inland from the
ports," Hall said. "We did not
believe that enough bees
could arrive on ships to form
an established population,
but they did so in Puerto
Rico, and now appear to be
doing the same in Florida."
As isolated swarms enter
one by one through the ports,
daughter African queens
from the swarms have no
choice but to mate with the
resident European male
drones. Fortunately, the hy-
brid offspring are not as ag-
gressive as their African par-
ents.
Neither the European nor
African race of honeybee is
native to the Americas. The
European honeybee has been
managed by commercial and
hobby beekeepers world-
wide for many centuries, se-
lected for desirable traits such
as gentleness, honey produc-


tion, tendency not to swarm,
winter hardiness and disease
resistance.
On the other hand, the
African honeybee is adapted
for survival in Africa's harsh
environment where climate,
predation and other factors
have produced a hardy race.
Because of urbanization in
Florida and public fears over
African bees, coupled with
increasing liability, apiary
sites could be more difficult
to obtain in the future. These
concerns, along with the mar-
ginal income from beekeep-
ing, could discourage bee-
keepers in the future. That
would decrease the availabil-
ity of bees and increase the
price of renting bee colonies
that are essential for the polli-
nation of crops.
"Large populations of Eu-
ropean honeybees managed
by beekeepers are probably
our best defense against
African bees," Hall said. "The
European honeybees com-
pete with African bees for
food sources. When they in-
terbreed with the African
bees, defensive stinging be-
havior in their offspring is re-
duced."

Faculty and students
who need to use a comput-

passwords, Windham said.
She can request that FIRN
lift a block on a web site if
a teacher needs to access it,
but FIRN does not always
grant such requests.
According to Windham,
she and a Dell computer
service technician traced
the fault in the filters to "a
glitch in the system." NHE
was the first school in the
county to allow students
access to the Internet and
administrators were un-
aware there was a problem
with the filters, she said.
Pennington said he is
grateful that the parent
contacted the school about
the problem so it could be
corrected. According to
Windham, none of the
computers at the other
schools in the county were
affected by the problem
and it has been corrected at
NHE.
The student told his

According to Pennington,
the teacher felt it was easier
for the students if they did
not have to log in each time
they used a computer. Al-
though the practice was not
prohibited, it was discour-
aged, he said.
According to Windham,
the history record on the
computer used to obtain
the pictures indicates the

ing the teacher's lunch

was unaware of the stu-

Parents are issued the
"Acceptable Use Policy

They must also sign a

The release form states,

Manure happens livestock waste

testing lab helps farmers turn manure

into valuable resource for plant crops


By Chuck Woods
According to the "Poop
Scoop" newsletter pub-
lished by the University of
Florida(UF) to help farmers
manage waste from thou-
sands of dairy cows and mil-
lions of chickens manure
can be a good thing.
"We try to take a light-
hearted rear view of the prob-
lem, but managing all that
waste to protect the environ-
ment is no easy task," said
Cliff Starling, coordinator of
nutrient management pro-
grams at UF's Suwannee Val-
ley Livestock Waste Testing
Laboratory in Live Oak.
The lab, which is the first of
its kind in the nation, serves
livestock producers through-
out the state. In the environ-
mentally sensitive Suwannee
River basin of North Florida,
there are about 25,000 dairy
cows and 38 million chickens.
Statewide, there are about
142,000 dairy cows.
The price of fertilizer is in-
creasing rapidly, and the goal
of the lab is to help change an-
imal waste into a valuable re-
source by analyzing it for dif-
ferent nutrients.
The cow manure and
chicken litter which contain
valuable plant nutrients such
as nitrogen, phosphorus and
potassium can help farmers
save money by reusing and
recycling nutrients. Use of an-


imal waste may also lower
production costs by reducing
the need for commercial fer-
tilizer.
In North Florida, careful
application of manure to
crops also helps reduce the
movement of nutrients into
ground and surface waters in
the 13 counties that comprise
the Suwannee River Water
Management District. Be-
cause of the region's porous
soils and active hydrology,
every effort must be taken to
protect water resources from
pollution by animal wastes as
well as human wastes and
fertilizers.
John and Doug Carter, fa-
ther and son owners of C&C
Farms in McAIpin, Fla., said
they rely on the lab to test
chicken litter for various nu-
trients.
"By having the lab test our
poultry waste for nutrients,
we know what rates and
amounts to apply to crops
such as corn, hay, oats and
sorghum," John Carter said.
"As a result, we have been
able to reduce our fertilizer
costs by about 90 percent."
Starling said manure
should be sampled at the lab
before each field application
is made, or at least twice a
year, preferably in winter and
late summer to measure sea-
sonal nutrient variations in
the waste. The free lab service


is provided by UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
To use the lab's services,
farmers can contact their local
county extension agent to dis-
cuss their manure manage-
ment system and arrange for
waste samples to be ana-
lyzed. At the request of local
county extension agents, Star-
ling also educates individual
farmers about their waste
management programs.
In addition to coordinating
the lab's nutrient manage-
ment programs, Starling con-
ducts education programs,
workshops and tours for
farmers and other residents
who want to utilize organic
wastes on crops, pastures and
pine trees.
UF's North Florida Re-
search and Education Center
works closely with the
Suwannee River Partnership,
which includes local, state
and federal government
agencies that are helping
farmers develop strategies for
monitoring and managing
waste and fertilizer in the
basin.

Commonly overlooked


household hazards


Many parents and care-
givers know to install
safety gates and locks
around their home. They
know not to leave sharp
or harmful objects within
a child's reach, and to
cover all electrical out-
lets. Some other potential
hazards, however, aren't
as obvious.

Reunion

scheduled

for July 31
The annual Perry/Leigh
Reunion will be held at
the Quality Inn, Lake City,
Fla. (1-75 & US 90) on Sun-
day, July 31, from 9 a.m.
till 3 p.m., in the Desota
Room. Lunch will be
served by private buffet at
cost of $11 per person
($5.50 for children) and
will include drinks, buffet,
dessert, taxes and tips.
For those people who
can make it on Saturday,
July 30, there will be a
gathering of the clan late
Saturday afternoon
(around 6 p.m.) at the
Quality Inn, in the Sante
Fe Room, to share memo-
ries of the past. (Larry Per-
;ry says he is bringing a
bushel of boiled peanuts
for the Saturday afternoon
get together). All relatives
and friends of the family
are invited to attend both
gatherings.

English Ivy and Philo-

poisonous and can cause
skin reactions, diarrhea,

plants out of the reach of
children, and check with
local poison control cen-

When bathing a child,
make sure the shower

Sliding glass doors are
a risk to children and to

obvious and avoid colli-

The
Last Sunday I asked the
congregation at church
who could relate to being
in "The Pit". I was amazed
to see the majority of peo-
ple present respond to my
question. Many people
get in "The Pit" and get
down on themselves. It is
a place where you feel
you can not get out, a
place of no hope. I have
concluded that most peo-
ple must walk around in a
state of hopelessness a lot
of the time.
We can find some "Pit"
situations in the Bible.
The one I am excited
about is the one that in-
volves Joseph. Remember
in Genesis 37, how Joseph
told his family about his
dreams? According to the
dream, his family would
bow down to him some-
day. Of course, the family


pit:
did not take that news
very well. His brothers
hated him. Oneday
Joseph's father sent him
to check on his brothers
who were tending the
sheep. The sheep had to
be moved quite a ways
away from home to find
grass. As the brothers saw
Joseph coming, they fig-
ured this would be an op-
portune time to get rid of
their brother. He was
thrown into a pit and
there he waited wonder-
ing what would happen
to him. He must have
thought all hope was lost
because he could hear
them talking about how
they would kill him.
Joseph was in "the pit."
This is where many peo-
ple find themselves many
times. It is a place of no
hope.

"The pit" looks to be a
bad place to be until you
hear "the rest of the sto-
ry." There happened to be
a caravan of traders com-
ing by about that time so
Joseph's brothers decided
to sell him to them know-
ing that Joseph would be
enslaved to someone for
the rest of his life. After
years of slavery and even
imprisonment, Joseph
was rewarded for inter-
preting Pharaoh's dream
and saving Egypt and the
rest of the area from a ter-
rible famine. Joseph was
made second in charge of
the whole nation of
Egypt, the greatest nation
of the world at that time.
People bowed down to
him in honor. Eventually
his own brothers had to
come to him to ask for
food and they bowed
down to him just as the
dream said they would
years ago. "The pit" that
Joseph was thrown into
was just the right pit in
the right place just when
the caravan came by to
take him to his place of
promotion. God had giv-

en the dream, set the
goal, and now was pro-
viding a way for it to
come true.
If we could look at our
pit situations like they
were only temporary, just
an uncomfortable resting-
place until our caravan
comes along, then we
could keep a positive atti-
tude through the ordeal.
Then when we get in "the
pit" we could call it a pit
of promotion rather than
a pit of hopelessness.
Have you been in "the
pit" lately? Turn it around
to a pit of promotion.

Medicare making first major change in over 20 years

Brianna Bennett

Brianna Bennett


participates in Girls State


Brianna Bennett, daugh-
ter of Lisa and Richard
Bennett of White Springs,
represented Hamilton
County at Girls State in
Tallahassee last month
and was selected as the
Most Outstanding Senate
Page.
The purpose of Girls
State is to provide citizen-
ship training for young
women completing their
junior year in high school
within the State of Flori-
da, to afford them the op-
portunity to live together
as self-governing citizens,
and to inform them of the
duties, privileges, rights
and responsibilities of
American citizenship in
order that they may un-


derstand and participate
in the functioning of their
government.
Hamilton County's rep-
resentative is sponsored
each year by the Bryant
Phillips American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 215. Mrs.
Gene Chandler, Girl's
State Chair Person, would
like to express her thanks
to the Kiwanis Club for
their support this year
also.
Three hundred Girls
State participants attend-
ed the eight day program
where each one had to
give a speech, complete an
interview and propose a
bill on the federal, state or
local level they would like
to change or modify.

Beginning January 1,
Medicare's newest benefit,
prescription drug coverage
will begin. This is the
largest change and the first
additional major benefit
added to Medicare in over
two decades. It provides
drug coverage through pri-
vate companies at con-
trolled rates with mandated
minimum benefits. It is esti-
mated that 29.3 million peo-
ple will be enrolling in the
program. Of that number,
about 6.3 million will pay
nothing and another 4.6
million will get benefits at a
reduced cost.
Single people who make
up to $12,920 and couples
who make up to $17,321
will pay nothing for the
coverage and have co-pays
of $2 for generic and $5 for
brand name medicines.
People with incomes be-
tween $17,321 and $19,245
for a couple (lower for sin-
gles) will get varying subsi-
dies to help reduce the cost.


The amount increases
$3,180 for each additional
dependent.
There is a limit on the
amount of assets, other than
a home, personal items and
car, that a person can have
to be eligible for the assis-
tance. In 2005 the limit is
$11,500 for a single person
and $23,000 for a couple.
Currently the cost is esti-
mated to be $37 per month.
To get the reduced cost,
most people must apply
and both CMS and SSA will
be sending out information
on this. Neither enrollment
nor the subsidies will be au-
tomatic. Those on Medicaid
or who have the state pay-
ing their Medicare premi-
um will receive the pay-
ment assistance automati-
cally and will receive a let-
ter indicating that. This let-
ter should be kept if re-
ceived.
For those not receiving
the subsidy, there will be
different limits of coverage


and deductibles and co-
pays. These may vary by
sponsor and there are maxi-
mum deductibles and co-
pays that are mandated by
Medicare. It is still impor-
tant that everyone who is
eligible and will benefit
from Medicare Part D to
sign up for it when the
process starts in the fall.
To make sure everyone is
aware of the benefits they
may be entitled to, the
Hamilton County Pharma-
cy Assistance Program
(HCRXPAP) is available to
help. Funded by a grant
from The Blue Foundation
for a Healthy Florida, Inc.,
the service provides assis-
tance with finding pro-
grams for free or reduced
price medication and mak-
ing application to them. The
assistance is free of charge.
Information and applica-
tions are also available.

The Tallahassee Muse-
um Exhibition opens
"Wedding Gowns: Time-
less Elegance" on display

changing styles and even
colors of wedding gowns

It features a selection of


bridal dresses from the col-
lections of the Tallahassee
Museum, the Museum of
Florida History, Florida
State University's Depart-
ment of Textiles & Con-
sumer Science, and loans
from area families, includ-
ing the chantilly lace and
antique silk taffeta gown
purchased at Gibbs Loui in
downtown Orlando and
worn by Donna Lou Harp-
er at her 1956 wedding to
Reubin Askew.
Wedding gowns have
not always been elaborate,
as many are today. In the
eighteenth century, poor
brides dressed in simple
robes. This symbolized to
her future husband that
she brought nothing with
her into the marriage and
would therefore not bur-
den him with any debt. It
wasn't until the mid-nine-


teenth century that the all-
white .wedding dress be-
came fashionable. Up until
then, a bride simply wore
her best dress, regardless
of its color. In 1840, Queen
Victoria's pure white
gown started the trend
that many women follow
today.
The wedding dress is a
symbol of love, romance,
and marriage. Whether
silk, satin, or lace, pastel,
muted, or white, nine-
teenth or twentieth centu-
ry, each gown in this exhi-
bition represents the cele-
bration of promises and
pledges that transcend
fashion and time. "Wed-
ding Gowns: Timeless Ele-
gance" celebrates this
unique garment and its
place in history.
In conjunction with the
exhibition, wedding relat-


gowns
ed workshops are sched-
uled, including wedding
cake decorating, wedding
coordination, wedding
flower arranging, and
making reception favors
and decorations.
The Tallahassee Muse-
um is a 52-acre Museum
located in SW Tallahassee
on beautiful Lake Bradford
where history, nature, and
wildlife are intertwined to
tell an intriguing story
about Florida's natural
and cultural history. This
unique Museum, 1880s
farmstead, historical build-
ings, natural habitat zoo
and scenic grounds pro-
vides hands-on learning
and entertainment for all
ages.

Frederick Robinson
Principal
Parents, students and member of the community,
I am very excited about my appointment as Princi-
pal of Greenwood School. My goal is to work closely
with parents and teachers to ensure that the School Im-
provement Plan and the State Sunshine Standards are
followed.
Parents, I will have an open door policy. If you have
any concerns, please feel free to stop by or give me a
call.
"Meet Your Teacher Day" will be held on Wednes-
day, August 3, 2005 from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. for all
Greenwood School students. I am looking forward to
a wonderful school year and a great deal of support
from the community.

South Hamilton Elementary
Johnny Bullard
Principal
Dear Friends:
The 2005-2006 school year will begin on Monday, Au-
gust 8, 2005, at 8 a.m. This year, our school day will begin
at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. We are looking forward to a
good school year filled with many exciting and fun-filled
learning opportunities for our students.
Our highly qualified staff members are ready to provide
your child/children with a "top notch" educational pro-
gram in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. Par-
ents, we need your support to help your child achieve his
or her maximum potential. We know our school is "tops",
as we have "top notch" students, staff members, parents,
and community supporters.
The little acronym below "spells out" some aspects that
will "add value" to your child's school experience.
T: Take time to be involved in your child's educational
program.
O: Offer to help with your child's educational program -
help with PTO, field trips and other school related pro-
grams.
P: Plan ahead. Make your child's medical and dental ap-
pointments, when possible, during the afternoon hours.
N: Never let your child hear you criticize the school or
its programs you and the school need to be on the same
page.
O: Opportunities for involvement abound in your
school just ask.
T: Time is important. Your child needs to be to school on
time and needs to be in attendance every day he/she can.
C: Caring about your child's educational prograri in-
volves scheduling and keeping regular parent/teacher
conferences.
H: Helping the school involves being a "cheerleader"
about the positive aspects of your child's educational pro-
gram.
South Hamilton Elementary, as always, belongs to you,
the community, and our "welcome mat" is out for you. We
will have our "Meet the Teacher" event on Thursday, Au-
gust 4, from 1 p.m. till 3 p.m. We invite you to come to the
school and spend some time with your child's teacher, all
of our staff members and myself. As your child's principal,
'my basic philosophy of a child's educational experience
during the elementary years is simple: "Children may not
always remember what we taught them, but they will al-
ways remember how we made them feel."
Even though FCAT, Sunshine State Standards, and all
the academic expectations required by the state are
mandatory, it is the job of educators to make children "feel
good about learning" and "feel good about themselves."
The educational experience involves much more than the
three "R's". The education of the "whole child" encom-
passes academic, social, and emotional components that
complement each other to provide each child with a "well
rounded" education.
At South Hamilton, "Way Down Upon the Suwannee
River," we are "Changing Lives Through Quality Educa-
tion."

forts will be spent making
sense of a blurry world not
on the lesson or task at
hand.
Studies indicate vision is
the key element (almost 80
percent) of the learning
process during a child's first
12 years. For children who
have undetected vision
problems, the joy and dis-
covery of classroom learn-
ing can quickly become a
burden and something to
avoid.
The American Optometric
Association and the Vision
Council of America encour-
age parents to avoid possi-
ble future problems in the


classroom by taking their
children to the eye doctor.
An examination assesses
whether the eyes see clearly.
During an examination,
the eye doctor makes sure
the eyes are able to work to-
gether, to focus properly,
and to move together. These
eye functions are necessary
for activities such as moving
across a page of print or fol-
lowing a ball, and for
healthy, productive learn-
ing in the classroom.
Undetected vision prob-
lems are easily overlooked
by parents, teachers, and
children themselves. Chil-
dren assume that what they


ssroom by


see is what
everyone sees
even when it's
blurry. If a child
exhibits any of
the following be-
haviors, consider
making an ap-
pointment for a
comprehensive
eye exam: loses
place while read-
ing; avoids close
work; holds
reading material
closer than nor-
mal, brings it
closer while
reading, or shifts
it often; tends to


rub eyes; has
headaches; turns
or tilts head to use one eye
only; makes frequent rever-
sals when reading or writ-
ing; uses fingers to maintain
place when reading; omits
or confuses small words
when reading; and consis-
tently performs below po-
tential.
Ensure that children can
make the most of their five
senses in the classroom.
Make an appointment for an
eye examination now. Visit
the American Optometric
Association Web site at
www.aoa.org, or the Vision
Council of America Web site
at www.checkyearly.com
for more information.

Back to school is a season
of change. Your child
tightens the laces on his
new shoes and hoists up
his new backpack. He
climbs onto a bus with new
classmates, on his way to
meet a new teacher in a
new classroom. With lots
of adjustments to make,
parents are often left wor-
rying about their child's
resilience.
"The back-to-school sea-
son is full of change and
adjustment," said Vicky
Lansky, author of Practical
Parenting Tips. "There are
simple routines you can
add to your child's school
day that will create a
stress-free learning experi-


ence for your little one."
From her book, Lansky
shares the nine following
tips to simplify your
child's school day:
Prepare for school the
night before. Set the break-
fast table and select an out-
fit.
Set a timer to alert your
child when it's time to
gather belongings and
leave for school.
Sew name tags into
clothing, especially coats
or gym clothes.
Tape milk money to the
inside of your child's lunch
bag or box, so he or she
will not lose it.
Teach your child to wait
for the bus driver's signal
when crossing the street.


Save empty paper towel
tubes for carrying impor-
tant papers or paintings to
school.
With young children, pin
notes to the teacher onto
your child's clothing.
Have a parent who
works outside the home
drop off your child at
school or at the bus stop.
Your child will be accus-
tomed to saying good-bye
to that parent, so it won't
cause trauma.
Don't forget to ask your
child about school activi-
ties.
"Your efforts will save
you time, which you can
use to play with your child
or help with homework,"
Lansky says.

The troops are ready to be
loaded in the van...but
you're missing the cargo.
Back-to-school shopping for
your kids' supplies can seem
like survival of the fittest af-
ter a summer filled with bar-
becues and family vacations.
This year, parents' mis-
sions to fill their children's
backpacks begin with one
common goal -- organiza-
tion. According to a recent
Office Depot survey conduct-
id by Harris Interactive of
more than 500 parents, more
than one-third (35 percent) of
parents said they'd choose
"keep them organized glue"
for their child as the No. 1 su-
per-powered supply.
While this "super glue" is-
n't available just yet, Maria
Bailey, Office Depot's family
organization expert, an
,award-winning author, blue-
-suitmom.com founder and
working mother of four kids,
has tips to help parents get
their kid- in gear this school
year-. .. .
4Parents can start the
school year off on the right
foot by getting their kids and
homn ready for the back-to-
school season," says Bailey.
"It's as simple as following a
few survival tips to make
sure your child is ready with
the right tools to make the
grade."
Basic Tips to Guide Parents
Through the Back-to-School
Shopping Season
Prepare the Supplies: Be-
fore sending your troops off
to class, make sure they're
fully loaded with this year's
best supplies, such as Elmer's
Fun No Run Glue (under $1)
or Liquid Graphite Pencils
(under $3). Survival Tip: Buy
in bulk to save on items like
construction paper, poster
board, markers and glue. Not
only will these supplies fill
backpacks, but five percent of
your qualified supply pur-
chases at Office Depot will be
donated to the school of your
choice.
Balance Your Act: Back-

Backpack basics


Mission possible:

SIfh


shoulder straps. The bag should have two wide, padded
shoulder straps to distribute weight evenly. Narrow straps
can dig into shoulders, and backpacks with one shoulder
strap don't allow for even weight distribution. These straps
should rest equally on the shoulders, allowing the pack to sit
comfortably on the back. It's too low if it hangs down and
hits your rear, and it's too high if it rests on your neck. Use
shoulder straps to adjust the height to 2 inches above your
waist. If you can't adjust the height to this level, search for a
another backpack.
Also look for a bag with a waist belt, which can help dis-
tribute the weight of the load more evenly. It should buckle
and adjust like a regular belt. Make it snug enough to keep
the pack from moving but loose enough that you can breathe
comfortably.
The backpack should also have a padded back and be
lightweight. The padding makes it more comfortable and
protects you from the protruding sharp edges of any objects
inside. And a lightweight backpack ensures that you aren't
carrying unnecessary extra weight from the bag itself.
Pack it right. Overall, you should be comfortable and bal-
anced when you wear it. You shouldn't have to lean forward;
that means it's overloaded. According to Backpack Safety
America (www.backpacksafe.com), an online resource for
backpack safety, the maximum weigh of a loaded backpack
should not exceed 15 percent of your body weight. For ex-
ample, a child who weighs 100 pounds shouldn't wear a
loaded backpack heavier than 15 pounds. If the backpack ex-
ceeds 15 percent of your body weight, take some unneces-
sary items out and reorganize them, using all compartments
and placing heavier items near the center of the bag. Pack
items neatly so that they stay in place and don't slide around,
shifting weight from side to side.
The right backpack is not a surefire guarantee to bring you
to the head of the class, but it definitely can help bring your
supplies to class!

The Dog Days of Sum-
mer roll on, but they will
soon come to a close dur-
ing the first week in Au-
gust. However, we can ex-
pect it to continue to be
"He-O-T HOT" as my
Daddy used to say until
about the middle of Octo-
ber. School bells will be
ringing for all students in
Hamilton County Schools
on Monday, Aug. 8.
Please exercise caution
while driving, as there will
be many school buses on
the road, as well as a num-
ber of students who walk
to school each day.
To all of our staff mem-
bers in the Hamilton
County Schools, I wish
each of you a happy and
wonderful school year.
Students, parents, staff
members, and community
supporters, you are all in
our prayers. Good luck to
everyone for a positive
school year.
Long Branch Congrega-
tional Methodist Church
will celebrate their church
homecoming on Sunday,
Aug. 7. Long Branch is lo-
cated on CR 135, better
known as the Woodpecker
Rt., north of White
Springs.
Janet Moses continues to
do a lot of good, positive
work in our town. Janet
and Tom Pearson, recently
purchased the old W. B.
and Edna Feagle home, as
well as the home that Ray
and Cindy Waters lived in
for a number of years.
Janet and Tom are restor-
ing both homes, and many
of us in White Springs are
delighted about their good
work. Thank you, Janet
and Tom, for your inter-


est. We appreciate you.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the families of Mr.
Roy McDaniel and Ruthie
McPherson. The families
have the prayers of the
White Springs communi-
ty.
Rev. Veronica Thomas
of the White Springs Pen-
tecostal Holiness Church
informed me that the
church will have a school
supply give away at the
church site on the corner
of Kendrick and Suwan-
nee Streets on Saturday,
July 30, from 8 a.m. till 10
a.m. Please bring your
school aged students to
the church. Supplies will
be distributed until they
are gone. God Bless the
congregation of the White
Springs Pentecostal Holi-
ness Church for this good
work.
Mama and I shared a
visit on Thursday, July 19,
with Sister Ruby Martin
and Virginia J. Daniel,
both patients at the Health
Center in Lake City. Both
ladies were in good spir-
its, and we enjoyed our
visits with them. Please
keep these ladies in your
prayers.
I shared a nice visit with
Dorothy Bryant this past
week. Bryant related to me
that she and her sister
traveled to Las Vegas,


Nev., earlier in the sum-
mer and had a marvelous
time. I am pleased Bryant
was able to make this trip
out west. Bryant continues
to serve SHE as our part-
time guidance counselor
and one of our number
one full time supporters.
Happy birthday wishes
are extended on July 28 to
Nora Lang of White
Springs, and to my
beloved niece, Laura Leigh
Bullard. Laura Leigh will
celebrate her tenth birth-
day and Ms. Lang will be
celebrating an anniversary
of her 29th but we're not
telling which one.
Many thanks to the
Stephen Foster State Folk
Culture Center for allow-
ing our administrators
from the Hamilton County
Schools to utilize Nelly
Bly's Kitchen, free of
charge, for our school sys-
tem's administrative re-
treat.
Thank you Barbara
Roberts, park manager,
and Sandra Caches, assis-
tant park manager, for all
their help. Many thanks to
Nick and Kathy Lyras and
all the staff at the Telford
Hotel for all their kindness
in accommodating us for
lunch. Many thanks to
Janet Moses for decorating
the mantel for us in Nelly
Bly's Kitchen and thanks
to my mother, Mary Lou
Bullard and to my friend
and our school secretary,
Mrs. Rheba Lee, for all
their help with 'refresh-
ments and breakfast for
everyone. God Bless each
one for all their help.

lowing in prayer: Virginia

Quote for the week: A
friend from South Caroli-
na e-mailed these to me,
and they are very thought
provoking. Meditate on
these regularly. Hate your
sin but never hate your-


self. Be quick to repent.
When God gives you light,
walk in it. Stop saying
negative things about
yourself. God loves you
and it's wrong to hate
what He loves. He has
great plans for you, so
you're in conflict with
Him when you speak neg-
atively about your future.
Never be afraid to admit
that you've made a mis-
take and don't always as-
sume that when things go
wrong, it must be "my
fault." Don't meditate ex-
cessively on what you've
done, right or wrong; both
of these activities keep
your mind on you! Center
your thoughts on Christ.
Take good care of yourself


physically. Make the best
of what God gave you to
work with, but don't be
obsessed with your ap-
pearance. Never stop
learning but don't allow
your education to become
a point of pride. God does-
n't use you because of
what's in your head. He
uses you because of what's
in your heart. Realize that
your talents are a gift, not
something you have man-
ufactured yourself; never
look down on people who
can't do what you do.
Don't despise your weak-
nesses, they keep you de-
pendent on God.
Have a good week
Hamilton County I love
you.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


It is that time of year
again, the beginning of a
new school year. There
will be many changes. It
seems that school just
turned out for the sum-
mer. Everyone will be on
a new schedule, school
activities will begin as
well as studies, even
those who are not directly
connected with the school
system will be subjected
to new routines. The dis-
trict offices will be back to
the five-day routine. All
will be affected in some
way, we pray that it will
be a good year.
The monthly birthday
party at the Suwannee
Valley Nursing Center
was hosted by First Pres-
byterian Church of Jasper
last week. A large beauti-
ful (delicious too) cake
was cut and served with
ice cream and punch. A
pound cake was provided
for those who did not
need to be eating too
much "sweet stuff." Each
resident celebrating a
birthday for this month
was given a "goodie bag."
Everyone sang happy
birthday to those who
had birthdays.
Entertainment was
provided by Rachel and
Mallory Morgan, and
Trey Norris. Rachel and
Mallory danced, clogging
several numbers, it was
noted between some of
the dances that the latter
ones were the "new clog-
ging." The girls were
great and are carrying on
the Morgan tradition, we
can remember the years
the "older" members of
the family entertained us,
we all enjoyed the fun
and fellowship with
them. .
"Aunt Nancy" reminds
us of a Greyhound bus
trip to NC which we en-


joyed. They had a group
going to Franklin to com-
pete in clogging competi-
tion and they included me
(I was not a participant,
but I did have a great
time). My mother met us
at the bus in Franklin and
while they stayed at a mo-
tel, it'was great for me to
enjoy a visit with Mother.
We attended the perfor-
mances. Our group from
Hamilton County won
first place, we were so
proud of them. Many
good times.
Trey Norris performed
several numbers in song
at the birthday party, one
of his favorites, "Shame,
Shame," and a couple of
patriotic numbers. He
sang the "Star Spangled
Banner," the first time he
had performed it in pub-
lic, and that is a hard song
to sing, but he did a great
job (forgive me if I brag a
little on my grandson) we
noticed that a few of the
residents sang the Nation-
al Anthem along with
Trey, which was special.
They enjoy being a part of
the singing when others
entertain with songs that
they know. It was a mean-
ingful day for all who at-
tended.
Hope you get your pa-
per in time to make plans
to attend the Hamilton
County Brotherhood at
Jasper Presbyterian
Church on Thursday
evening, July 28, at 7 p.m.
John Chick will be the
speaker, he is a counselor
at Lowndes Middle
School, Valdosta, Ga. and
has been in the pulpit at
the Presbyterian Church a
couple of times and has
brought such meaningful
messages that it was felt it
would be a blessing to all
who come to hear him.

Lightning Season is here, and you need
our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This L" //
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.

Long-term

care options
Most people envision themselves as young and healthy. No one wants to think that
someday they may be unable to eat, bathe or get dressed on their own, or that they
could have a disease like Alzheimer's. Long-term care is what you'd need to help
you perform daily activities if you had an ongoing illness or disability. You may be in
your home, an assisted living facility or a nursing home. In fact, about 60 percent of
people who reach 65 will need long-term care at some point.
But of course, it comes with a price. According to the Federal Long-term Care
Insurance Program, the average nursing home stay is 2.6 years and the national annual
cost of a semi-private room is $52,000. Nursing home costs go up about 5 percent
each year. By the year 2030, they are estimated to reach nearly $200,000.
So who will pay for it? Your adult children may be financially unable. Medicare
covers only a limited amount of care after a hospital stay, and Medicaid will apply
only when your savings run out. Health insurance covers medical care for illness,
injuries or hospital stays. Disability insurance replaces only the income you lose if
you can't work after an accident or injury.
However, there is help available. Long-term care insurance can cover the cost of this
care and protect your assets. Once you qualify, you'll remain eligible as long as you
pay your premiums. Apply as soon as possible; the premium is based on your age
when you get the insurance, and it usually stays at that rate. In most cases, you cannot
qualify for long-term care insurance if you are already ill. Remember -- long-term
care insurance claims may be paid 10 or 20 years after the policy is written. That's
why it's a good idea to chose a stable insurance company with a history of writing
long-term care policies. Check with ratings services before making a choice. When
shopping around, look for a policy that you can customize with the right combination
of benefits for you such as:
Location of care: in your home, in a nursing home, in an adult day center or in an
assisted living facility
Type of care: skilled nursing care, custodial care, home health aides
Options for benefits (pay monthly or daily) and length of coverage
Flexibility in applying benefits
The number of days that you pay before your policy benefits begins, (ranging from
30 to 365 days)
Coverage of mental illness such as Alzheimer's
It's a difficult thing that you likely don't want to think about, but getting long-term
care insurance now will save you headaches and hassles when the time arrives later.

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

Dear Classified Guys,
I recently saw an ad for a pet skunk
in my newspaper? At first I thought
Sit was a joke. Then, I started thinking
about it and figured that a skunk
could make a great novelty pet. I
mean who wouldn't notice
when I took him for a walk ; "
down Main Street. The
question I have though, is
Sdo skunks make good pets?
How do I train him not to spray
everyone? My dog was sprayed
once and I don't think he's ever fully
Recovered!
Cash: If you think your dog will
have trouble adjusting to the skunk,
just wait until your family comes to
visit.
Carry: The question of whether a
skunk makes a good pet or not really
comes down to an individual's view.
There are some people who believe that
wild animals should not be domesticat-
ed. On the flip side, a domesticated
skunk can be a very gentle and affec-
tionate pet to own.
Cash: Before you rush out to get
Sone though, here are a few things to
consider. First, check to make sure that
pet skunks are legal in your state. If
they are allowed, your area may require


TE








Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


S7/24/05
02005 The Classified Guys@


a special permit.
Carry: Your next challenge will be
to find a reputable breeder. Skunks are
born in the spring, typically in the
month of May. And believe it or not,
many breeders have a waiting list of
customers. Since you already found an
ad, you have a good start on finding a
reputable source.
Cash: As for the skunk's scent or
concern about spraying, breeders have
the scent glands removed at about 4 to
6 weeks of age. Then, much like a
puppy, a skunk will be offered for
adoption when he is about 6 to 8 weeks


Carry: Skunks can be trained not to
bite and to use a litter box in the corer
of your house. However, you should be
aware that skunks are considered a
high-maintenance pet. They are very
playful, but demand a lot of attention.
As a newborn they need to be held as
much as possible to get acquainted with
you and your family. The more you
cuddle and play with the skunk as a
baby, the more docile it will be when he
grows up.
Cash: Of course, if you're looking
for a protector of the house, there's
almost nothing more deterring than a
"Beware of Skunk" sign.


Color Choices
When most people think of a skunk,
they picture a black animal with a white
stripe on it's back. But hold your nose,
because skunks come in a variety of col-
ors and patterns. Besides the traditional
black and white, skunks can be seen in
brown and white, gray and white, cream
and white or the occasional albino. Their
markings also vary from the classic white
strip as well. Many of them have pat-
terns such as spots or swirls. Regardless
of their coloring though, be sure to notice
which direction their tail is pointing!
Got Sprayed?
It's every dog owner's fear, having
their dogsprayed by a skunk. While the
traditional thought is to soak your pet in
tomato juice, that isn't the best remedy to
remove the smell. Instead, mix olre quart
of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup of bak-
ing soda and one teaspoon of dishwash-
ing detergent. Apply this to your dog,
taking precautions to protect their eyes
-and ears. After a few minutes, rinse with
normal tap water. Both you and your dog
will have some relief.

Stinking Party
When we moved into our new
house, a small skunk decided to move
in with us and took up residence under
the back deck. Since I knew he would
eventually pose a problem, I tried to
evict him several times, but with little
success.
On the night of our first house party,
my friend wandered outside after a
few too many drinks. He returned
smelling like the skunk.
As he stumbled by us in the living
room, my wife asked him, "What hap-
pened to you?"
Still holding his beer, he turned to us
and slurred, "That's the last time I try
to pet your cat."
(Thanks to Anthony P)



Too bad the dog
doesn't smell like his name.
