Superintendent of Schools
Summer break is almost

school year is just around
the corner! These past
weeks have been fast
paced and filled with
much activity as we have
worked to prepare for the
upcoming school year.
This year, the first day of
school for our students

We look forward to their
return and know that the
upcoming year will pro-
vide many opportunities
for them to grow and excel.
I would like to encourage
parents and other members
of the community to join
our district's team by pro-
moting the programs we
offer, both academic and
extra-curricular. With vour


involvement as a positive
role model, we can greatly
impact the lives of the stu-
dents.
I am pleased to have this
opportunity to welcome
back our returning stu-
dents, and to extend a spe-
cial welcome to our new
ones. It is my hope that
2005-2006 will be a safe
and productive year for
vou.

the Hamilton County High
School JAFROTC. After
White Springs Mayor
McKire welcomed the
guests, Herbert Lumpkin
from the Veterans Service
Office offered an invoca-
tion.
Colonel Richard B. Davis
Jr., Florida National Guard
State Judge Advocate and
Hamilton County Judge, in-
troduced Maj. Gen.
Kennedy, who presented
the Bronze Star Medal to
Subic. Kennedy who began
her military career in 1963
as an enlisted officer, said
that she felt privileged to be
able to present the medal to
Subic before she retired in
10 days.
"Soldiers like Joe are not
compelled to serve, they
choose to serve," Maj. Gen.
Kennedy said. "It is no acci-
dent that America produces
soldiers like Joe with the
heart and courage to serve
their nation."
Maj. Gen. Kennedy. ex-
pressed her pleasure at
meeting Chief Subic's fami-
ly wife Valinda, daughter
Ashley, son Joey and father
Joseph Sr. and thanked
them for sharing him with
the US Army Reserve.
As guests and partici-
pants dried their tears, Maj.


Gen. Kennedy pinned the
Bronze Star Medal on Chief
Subic. The Bronze Star
Medal is awarded for hero-
ic or meritorious achieve-
ment or service in connec-
tion with military opera-
tions against an armed ene-
my. Subic as the Personal
Security Officer for the
Deputy Commanding Gen-
eral, Multi-National Force-
Iraq and the Commanding
General of Task Force 134
and his team came under
fire repeatedly during the
course of their duties in
Iraq.
At the conclusion of the
ceremony Amber Lee sang
"God Bless America," and
kev. Ron Thompson, pastor
of First Baptist Church in
White Springs, offered the
Benediction.
During the reception fol-
lowing the ceremony, Chief
Subic said, "Let's continue
our prayers for those over-
seas and get our troops
home." His wife, Valinda,
said, "Our family is very
proud of Joe and appreci-
ates all the prayers and help
of everyone. I don't know
how we would have made
it without their support."
As the guests departed,
the air was filled with the
peal of carillon bells play-
ing a selection of patriotic
songs.


Chief Subic joined the
Army in 1974. He was one
of 51 soldiers who was cap-
tured by Iranian Militants
at the US Embassy in
Tehran in Nov. 1979. Dur-
ing his 444 days of captivi-
ty, he was blindfolded and
beaten. He was released in
Jan. 1981 and he received
his discharge in June 1981.
In 1994, Chief Subic was
called to active duty for two
years in Haiti during Oper-
ation Restore Democracy.
In 1997, he joined the Flori-
da National Guard as a
member of the 20th Special
Forces Group based in
Camp Blanding. He then
transferred to the US Army
Reserve and served with
the 307th Military Police
Detachment (CID). He is
currently assigned to the
99th Military Regional

1981, Chief Subic has
worked as an administrator
in various sheriff's offices
throughout the south. He
moved to White Springs 10
years ago and has been

as the police of chief for as
long as possible."

Aug. 6 Nationwide walk to


benefit children with HIV/AIDS


On Saturday, August 6, in
big cities and small towns
across the Unifed States,
people will unite and walk
together to show their sup-
port for the fight against
HIV/AIDS in children
across the globe. The new
nationwide event, called
MannaWalk, will raise
funds to provide nutritional
programs 'for children,
mostly orphans, with this
epidemic disease. Thou-
sands of walkers are expect-
ed to participate in more
than 300 MannaWalk events
across the country.
MannaWalk is an effort of
MannaRelief, a not-for-prof-
it organization that brings
health and hope to the
world's medically fragile
children by providing them


with nutritional supplement
programs overseen by doc-
tors around the globe.
More than 2.2 million chil-
dren worldwide have
HIV/AIDS, and last year
more than half a million
children died from the dis-
ease. The number of chil-
dren with HIV/AIDS is ris-
ing at an epidemic rate in
every region of the world.
MannaWalk is an effort to
improve the quality of the
lives of these children. One
hundred percent of local do-
nations and sponsor contri-
butions will provide im-
mune-supporting nutrition-
al programs from
MannaRelief to orphans
with HIV / AIDS.
Since the organization's
inception in 1999,


MannaRelief has helped
thousands of children
around the world in more
than 50 countries.
MannaRelief programs,
which are overseen by med-
ical doctors, include the ad-
ministration of naturally
derived nutritional supple-
ments, called glyconutri-
ents, vitamins and minerals.
MannaRelief is headquar-
tered in Grand Prairie, Tex.
For more information on
MannaWalk and MannaRe-
lief, visit www.man-
nawalk.com.
More than 300 locations
across the country will be
sponsoring this event. To

Forestry has biggest economic


impact on Florida agriculture


In a new study that reveals
the changing face of Florida
agriculture, University of
Florida researchers say the
forestry industry now has
the biggest economic impact
on the state eclipsing citrus,
vegetables and ornamentals
in terms of output.
Annual output or sales im-
pacts in the forest products
industry exceed $16.6 billion,
creating 133,475 jobs, with
$7.5 billion in value-added
personal and business in-
come.
Citrus is the crop most
people associate with Flori-
da, and the state still leads
the nation in citrus produc-
tion, but the study indicates
forestry is now the economic
heavyweight in the state's
$67 billion agricultural and
natural resources industry.
While forestry has a bigger
economic impact on the state,
environmental horticulture
still generates more jobs than
forestry in Florida. Environ-
mental horticulture is the
fastest growing segment of
agriculture in the United
States, and Florida is ranked
as the second largest produc-
tion state in the nation.
The forestry industry is
concentrated mainly in
North and Central Florida,
with more than 16 -million
acres or 25,000 square miles
of.forests, representing near-
ly half of the state's land area.


Forests in Florida are man-
aged to produce a variety of
wood and fiber products,
with about 650 million cubic
feet of wood harvested annu-
ally.
The growth of the Florida
forestry industry mirrors that
of other states in the south-
eastern United States, where
forestry is now the leading
agricultural commodity.
The success of the industry
in Florida and the Southeast.
is also driven by the fact that
large tracts of forest land are
privately owned, while
forests in the western part of
the nation are largely on pub-
lic lands. In many cases, state
and federal restrictions on
publicly owned lands govern
the amount of logging that
can take place, particularly in
old-growth forests, which ac-
counts for the decline of the
industry in the West.
While tourism is the
largest and most well known
sector of the Florida econo-
my, forested landscapes pro-
vide environmental ameni-
ties that support this indus-
try, particularly for the
growing eco-tourism mar-
ket. Visitors spend about $47
billion annually, which
translates into an overall
economic impact of $117 bil-
lion.
Various surveys indicate
that more than half of Flori-
da visitors engage in some


type of nature-based activity
during their visit. U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service data
show that wildlife-related
recreational activities in-
cluding hunting, fishing and
wildlife viewing account
for total expenditures in
Florida of an estimated $6.05
billion. That figure includes
money spent on fuel, lodg-
ing, and meals as well as
recreational equipment such
as boats and guns.
In addition to these com-
mercial and recreational use
values associated with
forests in Florida, there is an
array of non-market envi-
ronmental services that are
important to recognize, al-
though they may be difficult
to measure.
These non-market envi-
ronmental services include
surface and ground water
storage, purification of air
and water, mitigation of
droughts and floods, stabi-
lization of movement of nu-
trients, provision of wildlife
habitat and maintenance of
bio-diversity.
Florida forests absorb or
"sequester" about 5.8 mil-
lion tons of carbon from the
atmosphere -every year,
which helps reduce the ef-
fects of global warming. Us-
ing the figure of $5 per ton,
this positive environmental
impact is worth about $29
million annually.

The Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram has been open in
Jasper since February 2004
and is currently serving
many White Springs resi-
dents. To make it more ac-
cessible to people in the im-
mediate area of White
Springs, the program will
conduct initial interviews
to determine what assis-
tance a person may be able
to receive. The program
works with medicine man-
ufacturer's programs to
provide prescription medi-
cine at no or low cost.
The SHINE program is a
State of Florida program

Dear Editor,
Recently you printed a letter from
me proposing meaningful vocational
education in our high school. Since
then I have talked, at great length,
with the superintendent and repre-
sentatives of Governor Bush's educa-
tion department. They agree that the
current educational path is not leading
to success for most students. Here in
Hamilton County we have a dropout
rate over 20% (incoming freshmen ver-
sus graduation) and the school loses
many of its best and brightest to sur-
rounding counties. There are some mi-
nor one period (40 minute) vocational
classes available to students that quali-
fy. This is not enough to teach a trade in
any meaningful way.
I would like to suggest that everyone
able to read this write to Governor Bush
and make him aware that the FCAT sys-
tem needs to be paralleled by a vroca-
tional education system. The FCAT is
great for about 40% of students, it hurts


to the
.ito ,


the other 60% and is responsible, at least
in part, for a two out of ten drop out
rate. That means that out of two hun-
dred incoming freshmen, less then one
hundred sixty will make it for the re-
quired four years to graduate. That also
means that we will add at least forty
people to the list of unemployed every
year here in Hamilton County. The cost
of welfare, law enforcement, incarcera-
tion and the like is way beyond what it
would have cost to teach them a trade
when we could have. However, be-
cause of restrictions and constraints,
along with the "every child must go to
college" philosophy that pervades edu-
cation today, the local school board and
system can do nothing but teach to the
FCAT. No vocational training, no


meaningful dropout prevention,
nothing.
Hamilton County has a crisis in
that there are NO skilled trades peo-
ple within the county. Any plumber,
electrician, carpenter, mechanic,
nurse or whatever, other then a few
aging ones, comes from someplace else
when a job needs to be done here. Em-
ployers have help wanted signs in al-
most every window. There is no one
with any trade skills to take the jobs.
Even convenience stores have trouble
finding employees.
I would request that you, and all oth-
ers in the choir, let Governor Bush know
that the current system is not working.
Try vocational education, as an option,
here in Hamilton County and see how
well it does. It will not cost as much as
we spend now on futile programs and
remedial education. It may also work
and have some positive results.

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Tom Durrance Jasper Church of God


"Then Jesus went about
all the cities and villages,
teaching in their syna-
gogues, preaching the
gospel of the kingdom, and
healing every sickness and
every disease among the
people. But when He saw
the multitudes, He was
moved with compassion
for them, because they
were weary and scattered,
like sheep having no shep-
herd. Then He said to His
disciples, "The harvest tru-
ly is plentiful, but the la-
borers are few. Therefore
pray the Lord of the har-
vest to send out laborers
into His harvest." Matthew
9:35-38 (NKJV)
At times, many in our
churches forget the Biblical
principles that have been
laid out before us as to the
true mission of the church.
The church was never
meant to be a social club,
nor a place of segregation
or isolation. In fact, Jesus
said in Matthew 16:18, "I
will build my church,"
therefore we must con-
clude that the actual church
belongs to Jesus and He is
the builder while we are
the field workers that will


be used to accomplish this
goal.
Unfortunately, most
pastors would agree that
the latter part of the above
scripture text is the reality
in the church when it
comes to kingdom build-
ing: "The harvest truly is
plentiful, but the laborers
are few."
We must ask the ques-
tions: Where are the labor-
ers? What has happened to
.the laborers? Jesus knew
several thousand years ago
that we today would face
the dilemma of few labor-
ers building the kingdom
of God. It has been said
that 20% of the members of
any given church will do
80% of the work. That is a
sad statistic for the church
in America.
The following is an at-
tempt by the author to dis-
close to you, the reader, the
commandments of our God
regarding the ministry of
the church.
"The mission of the
church, the mission of
CARE before us..."
The church is responsi-
ble for taking care of the
poor: "For the poor shall

you, inasmuch as you did
it to one of the least of
these My brethren, you did
it to Me.' "Then He will
also say to those on the left
hand, 'Depart from Me,
you cursed, into the ever-
lasting fire prepared for
the devil and his angels:
for I was hungry and you
gave Me no food; I was
thirsty and you gave Me
no drink; I was a stranger
and you did not take Me
in, naked and you did not
clothe Me, sick and in
prison and you did not vis-
it Me. "Then they also will
answer Him, saying, 'Lord,


when did we see You hun-
gry or thirsty or a stranger
or naked or sick or in
prison, and did not minis-
ter to You?' .Then He will
answer them, saying, 'As-
suredly, I say to you, inas-
much as you did not do it
to one of the least of these,
you did not do it to Me.'
And these will go away
into everlasting punish-
ment, but the righteous
into eternal life." (Matt.
25:37-46) (NKJV)
We should minister care
to the widows: "Pure reli-
gion and undefiled before
God and the Father is this,
to visit the fatherless and
widows in their affliction,


and to keep himself
unspotted from the
world." (James 1:27)(KJV)
We should be minister-
ing to the children: "But
when Jesus saw it, he was
much displeased, and said
unto them, 'Suffer the little
children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of
such is the kingdom of
God.'" (Mark 10:14)(KJV)
Finally we are to spread
the Gospel message: "And
Jesus came and spake unto
them, saying, 'All power is
given unto me in heaven
and in earth. Go ye there-
fore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of


the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost: Teaching them to
observe all things whatso-
ever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with you
always, even unto the end
of the world. Amen.'"
(Matt. 28:18-20)(KJV)
As you read this brief
article, please pray and ask
the Holy Spirit to guide
you into the harvest. The
ministry is not just the re-
sponsibility of the pastor
or evangelist. It is the re-
sponsibility of every born
again believer to work in
the harvest.
"The harvest truly is
plentiful, but the laborers
are few."

Trojans make final


preparations for successful .


football campaign -


Terry Hedgespeth
Sports Reporter
Four Trojans recently
took a trip to Doak Camp-
bell Stadium, the home of
the Florida State University
Seminoles, for the purpose
of elevating their games on
the gridiron. The camp was
a one day event with three
sessions for the Trojans.
Trojans who made the
trip were sophomore quar-
terback Justin McCoy, se-
nior fullback/cornerback
Desmond Williams, senior
runningback Lathaniel
Sowell and former Trojan
Nevin Reyford. Reyford
will be starting practice
with Methodist College in
Fayetteville, North Carolina
soon.
McCoy was nothing short
of outstanding. He was put
through many drills to in-
clude footwork and passing
techniques. McCoy quickly
impressed the coaches on
hand at the camp showing
off his strong arm.
Lathaniel Sowell was
equally impressive. The
highlight of the day was the


finale when Sowell took the
challenge of the Daytona
Beach Mainland highly
touted senior, Tony Wilson.
The Mainland star is listed
as the number seven recruit
on most lists in the state.
Sowell took the youngster's
challenge in the forty yard
dash, and come out on top
in the much awaited race.
Sowell impressed every-
body with his ability as a re-
ceiver and learned quite a
few techniques at the run-
ningback position which
should help the Trojans this
year.
Also making the trip for
the Trojans was Desmond
Williams. Williams was es-
pecially impressive defen-
sively, but looked as good
as anybody as runningback.
He will be running out of
the fullback position for the
Trojans this year and ex-
pects a big year as the Tro-
jans take aim at the play-
offs.
Also making the trip and
getting some great experi-
ence was former Trojan
Nevin Reyford. Reyford
will be starting football
practice with Methodist


College very soon, but
showed the skills both of-
fensively and defensively
that Reyford brought to
Jasper in a very successful
high school career as a Tro-
jan.
The Trojans had a great
time meeting other athletes
from Mainland, Lakeland
and Fort White. All the
guys seem to have a great
time on and off the field.
Making the trip with the
, Trojans was assistant coach
Larue Lieupo. There was
no doubt how proud she
.was of her guys. This coach
works hard for the athletes
at Jasper and spent the en-
tire day making sure her
players knew she was there
for support. It really makes
a difference. A lot of the
other teams were trying to
pry her attention away,
however, but despite her
enjoyment of getting in-
volved with all the teams,
her .boys knew they were
the priority. Lieupo is very
much respected by her
peers and the athletes from
all over the state for her
dedication and respect for
the athletes.


COMMENTARY

Memo from a Trojan fan

Trojans making work fun
B, Ten, HedgespDetri ,pr..rti reporter


personally would like to
thank the Trojans for letting
me attend the FSU camp
with them. I certainly learned a
lot of history from Coach Lieupo
about former Trojans, and had a
really-great time with the guys. I
was very impressed with the
great attitude of each of the guys
and their hard work and dedica-

tion to the Jasper football pro-
gram.
I had a chance to spend some
time with Justin, Lathaniel and-
Desmond, and certainly want to
wish these young men and their
teammates much success in the-
upcoming football season. I hope
they are as excited about it as I
am. Go Trojans!


Justin McCoy lets it fly at the FSU camp.
He was very impressive in his three day
camp and would have quite a bit of suc-
cess in the finale where the teams split off
into squads for a little competition.

Justin McCoy finds his target.
t r:'


Justin McCoy learns that there is quite a bit more to the
quarterback position as he is pushed to the limit. He re-
sponded extremely well at the camp.


Lathaniel Sowell took time to pose with the Jim Thorpe tro-
phy. The guys were treated to a little tour of the athletic of-
fice and all the history of Seminole football. Desmond Williams takes part in a few drills.


Desmond Williams will be impressive for the Trojans at the
fullback spot. But on this day, he shined with his abilities as
a defensive back.

School is hard enough
without having to worry if
you will be safe on your
way or while you're there.
Follow this advice on how
to start the school year
safely.
Find an easy way to
walk to school or the bus
stop. Ask parents if there
is anything that should be
watched out for along the
way. Always walk with a
brother, sister, neighbor
or friend.
Don't talk to strangers,
go anywhere with them
or take anything from
them. Know your tele-
phone number and ad-
dress, even the area code
and zip code. If you have
trouble remembering


them, write them down
and keep them in a safe
place.
If staying at home alone
for a few hours after
school while parents are at
work, call and check in
with them as soon as you
get home. Ask parents
what the rules
are. Are you
allowed to
watch TV be-
fore you finish


your homework? Or have
ice cream as a snack?
Most teachers have their
own rules for what goes
on in their classroom but
there are a few other
things that should be re-
membered when in class.
If another kid, even a
friend, asks you
^ to do something
you don't want
to, don't do it. If
you get into an


argument, talk it out.
Fighting will hurt you
and will probably get you
in trouble. It may even
give you a reputation as a
bully.
Know that tattling is
very different from
telling. Tattling gets
someone into trouble and
telling gets someone out
of trouble. It's always
okay to tell.
If anything bothers you
or makes you feel weird,
like a fight with a friend,
a run-in with a bully, or
anything else, talk to an
adult you trust.
Study hard. You can be
anything you want to be
if you work hard and
don't give up.

White Springs

^M^ S10AVM,


By Johnny Bullard


The school bells will be
ringing for another school
year on Monday, August
8, beginning at 8 a.m. I
hope all of our students
have enjoyed a good sum-
mer and are, to coin an old
expression "cock, primed
and ready" to return to
the halls of academe. I do
encourage all parents to
make a point of getting
their child/children to
school on time.
I wish all of our stu-
dents, staff members, par-
ents, and community sup-
porters of the Hamilton
County School System a
very good school year.
God Bless each one.
Laura Leigh Bullard of
White Springs, was hon-
ored by her parents, Jerry
and Amanda Bullard,
with a 10th birthday slum-
ber party at one of the riv-
er cabins at Stephen Foster
on July 30. Laura Leigh's
party theme was a "Pink
Party." Chaperones were
Amanda Bullard and
Georgeann Sapp. Laura
Leigh was -presented with
a beautiful birthday cake
made by her maternal
grandmother; Sybil Allen
of Jennings. Special guests
included Sybil Allen,
Mary Lou Bullard, Rhett


Bullard, Georgeann Sapp
of Douglas, Ga., and my-
self.
Happy birthday to Jerry
Lawrence Bullard on this
Thursday, Aug. 4, and a
happy belated birthday to
Kathy Combass. God bless
you both.
Verna Mae Johnson and
family held their annual
Jamboree at the "Huck-
abuck" on July 30. Many
friends, family members,
and elected officials
"dropped by" to pay Mrs.
Johnson and her family a
friendly visit and to enjoy
some wonderful barbeque
served with all the trim-
mings. I was sorry I could
not make it out to the
"Huckabuck" for Jam-
boree Day, but I did pay
Verna Mae a visit earlier
in the week. I am so
pleased this tradition con-
tinues on the southern end
of Hamilton County.
Janet Moses of White
Springs, held her Christ-
mas in July event over the
weekend. Janet has some
wonderful items available
in her shop. Drop by and
visit Janet at the shop. We
appreciate you so very
much.'

nounced plans for the cen-
ter's August Cracker Cof-
fee House on Saturday,
August 5, at 7 p.m. in the
Park Service Auditorium.
Featured artists for the
open forum performance
will be Jay and Linda Will-
ingham of Jasper. Admis-
sion is free of charge. To

Hoover, or call at 397-

I recently heard from
my cousin, Dr. Don A.
Thigpen of Daytona
Beach. Don Arlen, as he is
known locally, was reared
in Jasper by his parents,
the late John and Annie
Cason Thigpen. Don is ac-
tively involved with many
media projects including a
recent taping of the 53rd
annual Florida Folk Festi-
val with Florida Public
Television. He will, at
some time be coming to
White Springs to discuss a
preview of the Florida
Public Television "piece."
Congratulations to Mar-
jorie Cooks of Jasper, on
being named principal of
Central Hamilton Elemen-
tary. I hope everyone will
work with Mrs. Cooks and
give her an opportunity to
work with parents, staff
members, and most im-
portantly, students. Cen-
tral has a very special
place in my heart, as I
served as principal there
from 1993-1998. Keep Mrs.
Cooks and all the staff at
Central in your prayers.
First Baptist Church of
White Springs, hosted a
fifth Sunday "sing" fea-
turing the church choir
under the direction of
choir director David
Brantley and accompanied
by Amanda Bullard dur-
ing the Sunday evening
worship service on July
31. Soloists for the evening
included: Jeannie Thomp-
son, David Brantley, and
myself. Following the
evening worship service
was an ice cream social.
In thinking about those
who have been blessings


to our county, and there
are many, I think of Clyde
and Billie Payne. "Mr.
Clyde" as I have always
referred to him has helped
farmers, agri-businessmen
and women, and citizens
of Hamilton County, too
numerous to mention. Mr.
Clyde and I have shared
some good conversations
through the years and a
lot of laughter and some
trepidation too.
He was faithful in visit-
ing my Daddy during his
declining days. Clyde
Payne was awarded, justi-
fiably, the Lifetime
Achievement Award by
the Hamilton County
Chamber of Commerce a
couple of years ago. Billie
Bradshaw Payne taught
elementary school in
Jasper, along with her sis-
ter, the late "Miss" Nell
Rhoden.
In closing this column, I
thank God for individuals
like Clyde and Billie Payne,
and the late Nell Rhoden
and what they meant not
only to Jasper but to our
beloved Hamilton County.
They definitely did not
leave, in the words of
Longfellow "An all barren
path behind."
Please keep the follow-
ing in prayer: Virginia
Daniel, Sister Ruby Mar-
tin, Marie Hickson, J.M.
Morgan, Pearsall Fourak-
er, Amy Claxton, Sybil

HCHS Air Force JROTC attends


Cadet Officer Leadership School


By MSgt Scott Griggs
Nine Cadets from Hamil-
ton County High School
(HCHS) AFROTC FL- 938
attended the prestigious
Cadet Officer Leadership
School (COLS) in June at
The Citadel in Charleston,
S.C.
The Citadel is a national-
ly recognized university,
with a long tradition of de-
veloping outstanding lead-
ers for our country. The
Citadel was established by
the South Carolina Legisla-
ture in 1842, and many of
its alumni have distin-
guished themselves in poli-
tics, community service
and the military profession.
Air Force JROTC units
from S.C. organize and con-
duct the week long COLS.
There were 248 cadets from
23 schools representing
eight states in attendance.
HCHS Cadets attending
were Lafaye Alexander,
Jimmy Hamilton, Shadesia
Francis, Edmund Mitchell,
Geralyn Bristol, Kris Miller,
Kyle Altmix, Brian Buonvi-
no and Jahquan Ingram.


HCHS AFJROTC instruc-
tors Lt. Col. Darrell Davis
and I were assigned duties
as Flight Advisors.
JROTC Cadets experi-
enced a program designed
to bring out the best of each
Cadet in three major areas:
Physical Fitness, Drill and
Ceremony, and Academics.
The day started at 0530
hours with Reveille, physi-
cal training (PT) and a one
mile run. Drill and Ceremo-
ny instruction culminated
in Flight Drill Evaluation
and a formal military pa-
rade called a Pass In Re-
view. Classroom presenta-
tions were evaluated with a
final exam of 50 questions.
In addition to all of this,
Cadets were evaluated dai-
ly on dress and appearance
with uniform and room in-
spections.
Teamwork is the only
tool available if each cadet
and their assigned flight
are to be successful. Very
few kids were assigned to
flights with students from
their own units. This meant
that the kids had to learn


very quickly how to work
together if they were to be
successful as an individual
and as a flight.
"This is just the type of
environment we wanted
for our kids," said Lt. Col.
Darrell Davis. "Being re-
sponsible for your actions
and their impact on the
group is a very important
lesson for them to learn,
both MSgt Griggs and I are
very proud of our Cadets.
We are looking forward to
returning to COLS next
year."
Cadet Lafaye Alexander
earned the Leadership Rib-
bon and the Co-Curricular
Activities Leadership Rib-
bon for her accomplish-
ments as Commander, "A"
Flight. Excellence in the
Drill Evaluation earned
Cadet Jimmy Hamilton the
AFJROTC Drill Competi-
tion Ribbon. Attention to
detail garnered Cadet Ed-
mund Mitchell a score in
the top 10% on his personal
inspection earning him the
AFJROTC Superior Perfor-
mance Ribbon.

I did not know what to think of the chal-

was intimidating at first. I followed the ad-
vice of Sgt. Griggs and Col. Davis and lis-
tened very closely to the instructions from
our flight leader. After the first day it wasn't
so bad. By the end
of the week I did
not want to come Cadet I
home. This leader- .


ship school was a
great experience
for me.


Cadet Lafaye Alexander
What I experienced at the Citadel was
nothing compared to last year as a basic
cadet. I discovered being a cadet is a lot
more work. It's very intense work but
worth it. I learned a lot about group lead-
ership. I personally would tell students
that if they want

we learned about many' skills that will help us in the

needs. It was a experience that I will not forget.


to work hard to
get ahead to con-
sider joining
AFJROTC so they
could experience
what I did.


Cadet Bryan Buonvino


When MSgt. Griggs and Lt. Col. Davis asked me to go to COLS at the Citadel I said "sure,
why not." I like to try new things and challenges. When we got there, the first day was not
so bad and I thought it would be a piece of cake. Boy, was I wrong when the second day we
woke up at 5:30 a.m. It was the hardest time of my experience there but I learned an im-
portant lesson; never underestimate things. It looked easy the first day but we were on our
feet 17 hours a day marching, doing physical training, inspections, and much more. But
everybody got through it. This experience was very good, it made me push myself to the
point that says I can do anything as long as I believe I can. I also learned that big things
come with big responsibilities. It was a great learning experience.

Safety rules for parents


to teach their children

Provided by the Hamilton County Sheriffs Office


School can be fun and
exciting with every day
bringing new experiences,
but it can also be difficult
and even frightening for
children. Kids today are
faced not only with the
challenges of learning new
material and interacting
with other students, but
also an increased threat of
bullying and physical vio-
lence in schools.
You can help prepare
your children for the expe-
riences they will face at
school each year and help
create safer school envi-
ronment. Follow these tips
for advice on how to pro-
tect your children, and
how to teach them to pro-
tect themselves.
Map out with your chil-
dren a safe way for them
to walk to school or to the
bus stop. Avoid busy
roads and intersections.
Do a trial run with them to
point out places they
should avoid along the
way, such as vacant lots,
construction areas, and
parks where there aren't
many people.
Teach children to follow
traffic signals and rules
when walking or biking.
Stress that they should
cross the street at cross-
walks or intersections.
Encourage children to
walk to school or the bus
stop with a sibling or
friend, and to wait at bus
stops with other children.
Teach children not to
talk to strangers, go any-
where with them, or ac-
cept gifts from them with-
out your permission. Tell
them that if they see a sus-
picious stranger hanging
around or in their school
they should tell an adult.


Help children memorize
their phone number and
full address, including area
code and zip code. Write
down other important
phone numbers such as
your work and cell phone
on a card for your children
to carry with them.
Have children arrive at
the bus stop at least five
minutes before the bus is
scheduled to pick them up.
Make sure children know
to stand on the sidewalk or
on the grass while waiting
for the bus.
Teach children to make
sure they can see the bus dri-
ver and the bus driver can
see them before crossing in
front of the bus. Tell them to
never walk behind the bus.
Be aware that often bul-
lying takes place on the
school bus. Ask children
about their bus who they
sit with, who they talk to,
and what the other kids
do. Let them know that if
they see someone being
bullied, or are bullied
themselves, they can talk
to you, the bus driver, or
another trusted adult.
Talk to your children
about their day. Some-
times children won't tell
you right away if they are
having problems at school.
Teach children to resolve
problems without fighting.
Explain that fighting could
lead to them getting hurt,
hurting someone else, or
earning a reputation as a
bully. Talk to them about
other ways they can work
out a problem, such as
talking it out, walking
away, sticking with
friends, or telling a trusted
adult.
Keep an eye on your
children's Internet use.

insurance tips for college-

bound students and parents


In a few weeks, nearly
40,000 high school gradu-
ates in Florida will head off
to college for the first time.
Between deciding where to
live and what classes to
take, one important aspect
of life after high school is
regularly overlooked by
college-bound students
and their parents: insur-
ance.
According to the Florida
Association of Insurance
Agents (FAIA), more than
80 percent of students who
rent during the school year
might not have enough in-
surance to protect their
personal property, such as


computers and stereos.
"Parents and students of-
ten don't think about get-
ting insurance until after
the first loss," said Scott
Johnson, executive vice
president of FAIA. "A
good computer and pe-
ripherals can costs thou-
sands of dollars, and for a
college student, that's an
investment worth insur-
ing."
The following tips will
help protect college-bound
students and their parents.
Consider renters insur-
ance. Contrary to popular
belief, renters insurance
can be very affordable. A


typical policy, providing
$15,000 in personal proper-
ty coverage and about
$100,000 in liability protec-
tion, costs about $100 to
$150 a year. The liability
coverage is for negligence
that injures someone else
and similar lawsuits
should someone get hurt in
the student's apartment.
Be sure to know what
health insurance covers.
Health insurance is a tricky
issue for college-bound stu-
dents and their parents.
Many parents and students
are not always aware that
once students are older than
age 18, they can often be


covered by a parent's health
insurance only if the stu-
dents are in school full-time.
And once a student reaches
age 23, that student will
usually lose coverage under
a parent's policy, regardless
of enrollment status.
Inventory belongings.
Students should make a list
of personal belongings
they are taking to school
and keep that list in a safe
place in case of theft or
damage. The list should in-
clude "insurable" items
such as electronics, jewelry
and other items of value.
Parents should have an off-
site copy of the list.


Website teaches children how to manage money


Designed to teach math
and personal financial
planning skills to students
in grades six through
eight, Moneyopolis is a
free Web site, created by
professional services firm
Ernst & Young LLP. The
site features a space alien
who navigates visitors
through the game in the
quest to fix his broken


spaceship and return
home. It can be used by in-
dividual schoolchildren at
home with their parents or
as part of an education
program with specially de-
signed tools for teachers to
further the cause of finan-
cial responsibility.
The comprehensive site
includes lesson plans for
teachers as well as offsite


activities, and a section for
parents to use to educate
their children about the ba-
sics of good money man-
agement. A pop-up glos-
sary helps kids master the
terms of mathematics and
finance, and a "Budget
Gadget" helps them with
their own financial plan.

Lake Wales, Fla.- As the
world has grown more com-
plex and its pace more hurried,
there is one spot in the heart of
Central Florida where time
stands still and a sense of
peace and tranquility prevail.
for more than 75 years, His-'
toric Bok Sanctuary has of-
fered some of Florida's most
remarkable experiences.
Through its historic landscape
gardens, unique Singing Tow-
er and palatial 1930s winter
estate, the Sanctuary offers
visitors unparalleled opportu-
nities for artistic, cultural, per-
sonal and spiritual enrichment.
Located approximately 55
miles southwest of Orlando
and 60 miles east of Tampa
near Lake Wales, the nearly
250-acre Historic Bok Sanctu-
ary was originally one man's
gift to the world, and today is
the perfect gift for everyone to
give to themselves. When Ed-
ward Bok left Den Helder,
Netherlands at age six and im-
migrated to America, he did
not understand the language,
customs, or culture of his
adopted country. Through de-


termination and hard work,
Bok became a highly success-
ful publisher, Pulitzer Prize-
winning author, respected hu-
manitarian and an advocate of
world peace. His grandmother
told him to "make you the
world a bit better or more
beautiful because you have
lived in it," and he did that
throughout his lifetime.
During visits to his winter
retreat in Mountain Lake Es-
tates near Lake Wales, Bok be-
came enchanted with the beau-
ty, dramatic sunsets and vistas
at nearby Iron Mountain locat-
ed on peninsular Florida's
highest point.
Awed by the tranquility of
the area, Bok wanted to create
a special place that would
"touch the soul with its beauty
and quiet," and he believed it
would be the perfect setting
for a bird sanctuary. He pur-
chased multiple lots that were
destined to become residential
sites and commissioned the
world's most renowned arti-

round the flag
its campus and all five cen-
ters. That number grew when
the college decided to put
flags in instructional labs as
%\ell.
In the end, the Collegiate
Veterans Society bought 300
flags and metal wall brackets
for Santa Fe. Almost $1400
was donated by college stu-
dents, faculty and staff. Ad-
ditionat fut~difg carmfe
from the Alachua Coun-
t. ty Veterans Memorial
Committee which
helped the coun-
S ty's schools
meet the state
mandate.
T h e
SFCC Colle-
giate Veterans Society is
very proud of this initiative
and President Sasser's trust
in the society to raise the
needed funding," said Santa
Fe Veterans Advocate John
Gebhardt. Gebhardt attended
college on the GI Bill after
serving in the Army and is
now advisor to other veter-
ans completing their educa-
tion the same way.
Now that they have led
Santa Fe to meet the flag
deadline, the veterans are fo-
cused on another fund-rais-
ing project. They have thus
far raised $6,000 of $20,000
needed for two brigade size
(20 feet by 30 feet) U.S.
flags and a 92-foot flag pole.
Clements said that two
flags are needed because of
wear and tear-one flag is
flown while the other is be-
ing mended. The flag is to be
lighted and flown 24 hours a
day on the Interstate 75, or
west side of the campus.
"This is to honor all veter-
ans," said Clements. "There
are lots of memorials for
combat veterans, but this
flag would honor all those
who serve, including those in
the future." CVS members
hope to complete the project
with a dedication on Flag
Day, June 14, 2006.

Protect your child

against SIDS
SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, is the sudden death of an apparently healthy child
under one year of age. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), SIDS is the third
leading cause of infant mortality in the United States and the No. 1 cause of death among
infants under the age of one. While experts do not know exactly what causes SIDS, there are
steps that you can follow that have been shown to reduce the risk of it happening to your child.
SIDS RISK FACTORS
There are certain infants who are more predisposed to SIDS than others. Risk factors include
the following:
A baby who is born prematurely or at a low birth weight.
Infants who were exposed to cigarette smoke in the womb or those exposed to secondhand
smoke after they are born.
African-American
babies.
Male infants are.. _
more susceptible than .-_ ,
their female .
counterparts.
Infant care starts
even before your
baby is born. Visit an
obstetrician within .
the first three months
of your pregnancy, a
and follow with ".
regular checkups to
keep you and your
baby in good health.
Be a healthy mom-to-
be by not smoking or 'Am
drinking during
pregnancy, and avoid
other smokers. And
stay off the cigarettes /
after your baby is
born.
SLEEP POSITION When sleeping, all infants should be placed on their backs in a crib or
Your baby spends a bassinet that is free of blankets and stuffed animals.
lot of time asleep, and
how he sleeps can
affect his risk of SIDS. You, your caregiver and anyone else who watches your baby should
place your baby on his back when he is sleeping. In fact, since the "Back to Sleep" campaign
was initiated 10 years ago, sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the
SIDS Alliance, and the Association of SIDS and Infant Mortality Programs, the number of
SIDS cases around the world has steeply declined.
While doctors are still unsure, of why babies who sleep on their stomach are at a higher.risk,
for SIDS, most surmise that it has to do with these three reasons:
In the prone (stomach) position, babies achieve a deeper sleep and are less likely to awaken
themselves should they momentarily stop breathing (sleep apnea).
On the stomach, infants increase their likelihood of rebreathing exhaled air that is trapped
between the mattress and their face.
Infants who may not yet be able to lift their head steadily or turn over cannot roll
themselves if they've put themselves in a dangerous position (up against a crib bumper or
tangled in a blanket).
Infants who sleep on their sides are also at risk because they can roll over into the prone
position, but not to the extent that children who are put directly on their stomachs can.
SLEEPING ENVIRONMENT
Protect your little one by creating a safe sleeping environment. His crib or bassinet should
have a secure, tight-fitting mattress covered with a sheet. Don't put a baby to sleep on soft
surfaces like sofas, chairs, beanbags, pillows or waterbeds; he can suffocate on these surfaces.
Remove all loose bedding and stuffed toys, including comforters, quilts and blankets, which
can hinder breathing. And don't let your baby sleep in your bed or with other siblings. As
much as both of you may like it, a baby can suffocate in pillows and comforters, or if you
accidentally roll on top of him, or he may get stuck in between the bed frame and the wall
(look into a safe cosleeper bassinet if you prefer to keep your little one within arm's reach).
Overheating can also contribute to SIDS. According to the CDC, infants can overheat if they
are overdressed, are covered with blankets, or are in a room that's too hot. Set the baby's
nursery at room temperature between 68 and 72 degrees. Don't put him directly next to a
radiator or other heat source. If it's cold outside, don't overbundle him in heavy clothing or
blankets or pump up the heat. Instead, dress him in a sleeper or a "wearable blanket" known as
a sleep sack. During warm weather, dress your baby in lightweight sleepwear, and cool the
room with an air conditioner or fan.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Common questions about SIDS answered:
Many pediatricians have received calls from parents desperate for a night's sleep who have
said, "My baby doesn't like to sleep on his back. Can I put him on his stomach?" In most cases
the answer is an emphatic "no." A young child will learn to accept the back position over time
and should not be put at risk so his parents can get some shut-eye.
There are an array of sleep positioners that are designed to prevent infants from rolling over
onto their stomachs. These are not recommended for use and can actually ensnare an infant
who is strong enough to roll over.
Your infant can be placed on his stomach during supervised "belly time." This means when
you or a caregiver are watching him when he is playing. This strengthens neck muscles and
prepares your child for becoming mobile.
Some infants will develop a flat, bald spot on the back of their head from back sleeping. It
is not permanent and will likely clear up when your child gets older and spends more time in a
sitting position.
While there is no known cause for SIDS, you can indeed do everything in your power to
protect your baby from it.

sans to create a sweeping
landscape of gardens and a
spectacular belltower with a
carillon. Originally called
Mountain Lake Sanctuary and
Singing Tower, Bok presented
this extraordinary gift to Amer-
ica in 1929 as an enduring to-
ken of his appreciation for the
opportunities he had been giv-
en as an American. It was lat-
er named Bok Tower Gardens
and Historic Bok Sanctu-
ary.
Today, Historic Bok
Sanctuary is a sanctuary
for birds, animals and the
human spirit. It blends the
beauty of nature and the
intrigue of history with an
outstanding collection of ir
musical, artistic and archi-
tectural masterpieces that
enrich the hearts, minds
and souls of all who visit.
The Sanctuary features
beautifully landscaped
gardens, a majestic 60-bell
carillon housed in a co-
quina and marble belltow- "
er and a charming seven'
and a half-acre manor
called Pinewood Estate,
which showcases one of
the finest examples of
Mediterranean Revival ar- BE


chitecture in the state of
Florida.
The Sanctuary's award-
winning Education and Visi-
tor Center features permanent
exhibits that provide insight
and historical perspectives on
Edward Bok's life and influ-
ences, as well as the various
offerings of the Sanctuary. In
addition, an interesting and
informative film about Ed-
ward Bok, his impact on
American society and the


various elements of the Sanc-
tuary is shown every 15 min-
utes in the Orientation The-
ater. The Education and Vis-
itor Center also features ex-
hibits that showcase the

PEOPLE


By Pam Campbell
You and I are people, parents are people, children
are people, our neighbors are people, the postman,
the banker, our teachers, our pastors, the cashier, the
doctor, the people driving on the roads, we are all peo-
ple. People are made in the image of God. God says
"The Lord takes pleasure in His people." PsalmS
149:4a
As people, we have been given a wonderful opportu-
nity to reflect God's love in everything we do. As peo-
ple, our very words, and especially our actions, can
bring hope to someone feeling hopeless, peace to
those in turmoil, joy to the sad, lonely, or depressed,
nourishment to the hungry and love to those needing
love. We have been given a very unique position in the
world. Living as people, we have the opportunity to
live in the same world as all the other people, to un-
derstand how people feel, to experience the things
others experience. We have the chance to live as peo-
ple helping people, and at the same time have a per-

sonal relationship with the very God who created
us all.
God has given us animals to care for, a world
full of great beauty shown in mountains,
,; streams, rivers, beaches, oceans, lush green
grass, full tall trees, flowers in every color,
freshly fallen snow, blue skies, sunny days, a
spring rain shower, a rainbow, a little kitten,
a bunny hopping across the yard, a beautiful
bird in flight, a sunrise or sunset, so much
beauty around us, all for God's people to en-
joy! Have you ever thought about the differ-
ence in the things that are Godmade and the
things that are manmade? Only God, our cre-
ator, has the master plan or design. People can
try to make something great, but it pales in
., comparison to God's creations. In this world
. we are living in there are people who will tell
you God does not exist. There are people who
believe they will become a god someday. There
are people who think everything just happened.
I tell you when I look at the beauty of a new-
born baby or the birth of a new calf in the field,
or see the intricate details on a little humming-
bird, I believe. You see, God does not make things up
as He goes. He does not need to ask anyone for help,
He already has all things in creation planned before
they are in sight. He knows every person who lives, has
liied and all those yet to be born.
Nothing about you is an accident, God saw you be-
fore you were born. He knew what you would look like,
where you would live, what you will do in your life, and
he knows how long you will live. God has a reason for
everything. He creates each person to be a unique in-
dividual. There are many types of people, some who
live in fear, some who get angry, some who are only
happy when they get what they want. There are givers
and takers, some are loving, kind and full of joy, main-
taining a positive, upbeat attitude in all circum-
stances. Yes, the world is full of different people. What
kind of person are you? Do you live to serve God and
others, or do you live to be served? Revelation 4:11
says "You created everything, and it is for Your plea-
sure that they exist and were created."
You see, God created people to commune with Him.
He does take pleasure in His people, especially those
who are living for Him, and take time to know Him, to
worship Him, to seek His face, to find out what pur-
pose He has for their lives.
We have an awesome place in this world,living as
God's people, enjoying God's beautiful creation and
loving His animals and hopefully all of His people.

Wow, as people we have the awesome opportunity to
talk to, live for and worship the creator of the uni-
verse!
Now for some big questions concerning our lives as
people. What example do we set for the other people
in this same world? Do the people around you see Je-
sus in you? There is a song called "Can the World
See Jesus in You?." How about you, can the waitress
or waiter in the restaurant see Jesus in your words
and actions? When you are waiting in a long line at
the store, does your behavior to others in line and to
the cashier reflect the love of God? When your fami-
ly or friends don't do as you want them to, when
things are not going your way, can they still see Je-
sus in you? We are all people, but are we all people of
God?
Do we treat all people regardless of the color of
their skin, or how tall or short, overweight or thin,
rich or poor that they may be the same? God does
not see color. He is not affected by someone's height,
weight,or financial status. He created ALL people,
and He loves ALL people. God loves all people the
same,and He will always answer the prayers of all of
His people. This world is full of all kinds of people,
some are kind and loving, some are hateful and
mean, some are always pleasant to be around, and
some are not.
In this world there are people who are serving God
and there are people who are serving another master.
They are the ones who are lost and need to see Jesus
in our lives. They need the only hope available for
salvation, Jesus. As people, we can brighten some-
one's day with a simple smile, a hug or a sharing a
cheerful word of encouragement with someone.
Each day we live we have the opportunity to be hap-
py and determine to live a life full of joy, to go with
the flow, choose not to complain, but rather be
agreeable, be pleasant, be a joy to be around, or we
can choose to be sad, full of complaints, miserable
and make everyone around us feel miserable also. As
people, each of us has an affect on the people around
us. Whether it is positive or negative is up to us. I
know from experience thow I respond to situations.
How I approach different things that come my way
really does affect those around me.
Recently, I had the opportunity to see first hand how
much nicer a day can be when I just went with the
flow, let the worry go and determined to enjoy the day
and be a joy to all around me whatever came my way.
My family noticed the difference, and it was really
proof to me that we can change the way we deal with
things. We can smile and not complain. We really can
live each day with the joy that comes from Jesus. Yes,
I know sometimes we don't feel well, things may be
falling apart around us, we don't know the answers,
we are confused or hurting, but always remember that
as long as you have breath, you have life! Think about
it, does our complaining ever stop the rain? People
who are alive should always cherish each day they live
and make memories full of joy and happiness with all
those around them. "Do everything possible on your
part to live in peace with everybody," Romans 12:18.
We are living in a world where people are looking for
answers. Sometimes they find what they think is a an-
swer in the wrong places. Let us always be sure our
lives are lives that should someone follow our steps,
they will be following Christ. "The steps of a good man
are ordered by the Lord: and He delighted in His way."

Hey Kids! Back to school


Can you believe summer is al-
most over and school is starting
again? Some of you kids may be
happy you get to go back to
school. Some of you wish summer
would never end, and some of you
will go to school at home, but the
truth is school will start soon. Of
course, you can enjoy some of the
summer fun after school and dur-
ing weekends as the weather will
still be hot for a long time yet.
Also, you and your families can
still spend time together in the
evenings and on the weekends.
Now is the time to get serious
about school, do your very best,
and remember to ask for help if
you need it. If you have a prob-


lem, tell your mom, dad, or
teacher. Don't ever be afraid to
ask for help, and remember that
everywhere you go, even at school,
God is right there with you. He
will protect you, and He will be
your best friend. You can talk to
God at school. All you need to do
is talk to Him silently in your
mind; He will hear you, and He
will answer you.
If you don't like school, think:m -w
about this: there are children
in many other countries who
have never had the chance to
learn to read or write, or who
are without enough food to eat
and houses to go home to.
Learning is a privilege,


whether it is in a public, private or
home school setting, so be thank-
ful you have a place to learn and
books to read. You are very
blessed to live in America!
When you have to get up early to
go to school, be thankful you woke
up and ou can learn! Remember
to read God's Word. God promises
in Isaiah 54:13 "And all thy chil-
dren shall be taught of the Lord;


F i,


and great shall be the peace of thy
children." If you learn God's word,
you will have a wonderful life filled
with His peace. This peace will
help you succeed in school and in
every part of your life.
Treat your moms, dads, and
teachers with respect and love.
They are there for you, and God is
always there for you too. Have a
great school year!


Five Kids
It was late one restless night; I couldn't get to sleep.

I started dwelling on five kids, a memory in my heart to keep.

Five kids I went to church with, five kids I used to know.

Circumstances took their lives; too soon they all went home.

A reckless drunken driver, a disease that had no cure.

Unseen accidents up ahead, left families hurting and torn.

Donna had six children, Wendy she had three.
Laura had one boy, these kids meant a lot to me.

Josh was then in high school, doing very well.

Adam was in his 20s, loving Gators, all could tell.

They all have met the Savior, through the preaching of God's Word.

And many times they practiced the things they had learned.

When they ascended into heaven, their weary souls set free.

Being absent from the body, to live eternally with thee.

Remembering these five kids, there is reason for great joy.

For memory is one gift of God, that death cannot destroy.

Thank You Lord

Kathy Wilson

Dedicated to the loving memory of: Donna Barfus Johnson, Wendy Ivey
Cummings, Laura Fraddosio Tate, Josh Shepherd and Adam Wilson.

Dear Classified Guys,
I need your help. I advertised my
,-old car in the newspaper for $3000,
,and continued to drive it until my
[new car arrived. While going to
work, I accidentally spilled coffee
on my lap, swerved off the road
and crashed through some bush-
es. My car finally stopped when it
hit a Jesus statue on the front lawn
of someone's house. Aside from
having to pay for the bushes and a
new statue, I now have a car with
$1500 worth of damage. I don't
know what to do. Should I repair
the car and then sell it or just lower
the price and hope someone
buys it? Now that my new
car is here, I'm looking for
ideas. ~'


Cash: Have you considered
that running into a religious statue might
c. be a sign from above? Maybe you're
' meant to give up drinking coffee on the
-'way to work.
Carry: Whether you received a mes-
sage or not, your options really depend
.on the damage to your car and your insur-
ance coverage. From your circum-
stances, it seems you didn't have collision
insurance. In that case, repairs to the
property and your car come out of your
pocket.

@2005 The Classified Guys


Cash: The next question is how bad
was the damage to your car?
Considering the high cost of repairs, a
few scratches and a dent from a statue
could easily rack up $1500 worth of
repairs.
Carry: If the damage is simply cos-
metic, try selling the vehicle without hav-
ing the repair work done. Believe it or
not, there are a lot of people who will buy
a good running car with a dent or two,
especially if you adjust the price accord-
ingly.
Cash: I just bought a car last week-
end that has a dent in the passenger door.
It seems the owner's daughter sideswiped


a fencepost on her first driving lesson.
I'm just glad I bought it before she tried
parallel parking!
Carry: Since you already have your
new car and are probably looking for'a
headache-free conclusion to your situa-
tion, try selling your car without invest-
ing a lot of money. Even if you had all
the repairs done, your car may never
regain its full $3000 value. Although it
depends on the extent of your damage,
the most economical solution is to accept
the loss and sell the car as it is.
Cash: And even if you're not a reli-
gious person, you may want to take your
new car to church next weekend!


Staying Focused
It's one thing to see an accident while
driving on the highway. It's another to
think that turning to look could cause you
to have a collision of your own. Believe
it or not, rubbernecking at accidents,
people or other distractions is a leading
cause of the 6.3 million accidents every
year. Driver fatigue, cell phones, other
passengers and adjusting the radio also
rank among the leading causes of crash-
es. So the next time you're driving, be
safe and keep your eyes on the road.

One Stop Shopping
"It's just a quick trip to the store. I
don't need to wear my seatbelt." It's a
common excuse that could prove fatal.
Wearing a seat belt is not only the law,
but also a safe habit we should all have.
Surprising, only 68% of all drivers wear
their seat belts. While most of us never
plan on a collision close to home, three
out of four accidents happen within 25
miles of home. And approximately 40%
occur at less than 40 mph. That sounds
just about the speed and distance of a
quick trip to the store.

Soaked
There's a small pond on the comer
of my road that cars can accidentally
slide into when the road is wet and
slippery.
Last rainstorm one driver took the
turn too fast and skidded his new car
right into the water. Fortunately, the
pond is only a few feet deep so he
escaped unharmed and the police
quickly arrived at the scene.
As the gentleman watched a tow
truck pull his car out of the pond, the
officer explained how he would have
to write a citation.
"What for?" asked the gentleman
still in his dripping suit and tie.
Jokingly the officer replied, "For not
having any boat registration."
