State Rep. Kendrick presents $250,000 to county


Florida's "green" budget signed
by Gov. Jeb Bush included more
than $42 million to expand and
improve local parks across the
state a 100 percent increase from
2004. Funded through the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion's Florida Recreation Develop-
ment Assistance Program (FR-


DAP), 274 projects in 64 counties
will renovate local parks and en-
hance nearby communities by in-
creasing outdoor recreation and
improving public access to natural
Florida. State Representative Will
Kendrick (D-District 10) presented
three checks to community lead-
ers from the FRDAP to improve


areas in Hamilton County.
Gibson Park, also known as No-
ble's Ferry, in Hamilton County
will receive $50,000. The park is lo-
cated on CR 751 on the Suwannee
River and is a part of the Suwan-
nee River Wilderness Trail. This is
the second grant received from
FRDAP for the renovation of the


facilities at the park. The proposed
improvements will benefit single
day users and short term campers,
enhance the safety of campers and
promote handicapped accessibili-
ty of park facilities.
Another check for $50,000 was
presented for improvements in
the area of Bellville. This will in-


dude a playground area near the
Bellville Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment that will include a picnic
area, playground equipment, and
a basketball court.

ceived a check for $150,000 for the

WELCOME TO FLORIDA: The Hamilton County High School ROTC raised the colors at
the grand opening of the Joseph 0. Striska Florida Welcome Center on 1-75 south on
Aug. 5 (Staff Photo)


Dignitaries and the not-so-
dignified attended the Grand
Opening Celebration of the
Joseph 0. Striska Florida
Welcome Center on Aug. 5.
Guests included representa-
tives from VISIT FLORIDA
and the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT),
and local government offi-
cials as well as a pirate, a
spaceman and some South-
ern belles.
The new $13 million dollar
facility is the result of collab-
orative efforts between VISIT
FLORIDA and other part-
ners. The project, which was
funded by the FDOT, was
completed earlier this year.
Before and after the cere-
mony visitors to the wel-
come center located on 1-75
south were greeted by a pi-
rate from Pirate's Dinner Ad-
venture in Orlando, a space-
man from Kennedy Space
Center in Cape Canaveral
and Southern belles from
Cypress Gardens in Lake


Wales. Animal lovers could
hold a parrot or an alligator
from Gatorland in Orlando.
Representatives from VISIT
FLORIDA distributed pen-
cils, notepads, bracelets and
pins to children and adults.
VISIT FLORIDA CEO Bud
Nocera opened the ceremo-
ny with a welcome speech.
After the Hamilton County
High School ROTC raised
the colors, South Hamilton
Elementary Principal Johnny
Bullard sang "The National
Anthem."
Charles Baldwin, FDOT
District Two Secretary, ex-
pressed his appreciation of
the employees and contrac-
tors who worked on the wel-
come center. He said, "We
are proud that this project
was finished on time and on
budget. Although there were
four hurricanes last year, we
had no down time or loss of
service."
Jennings Vice-Mayor
Charles Barrett thanked the


welcome center employees
for their service to the com-
munity. Hamilton County
Commissioner Ronnie Mor-
gan also expressed his appre-
ciation of their hard work
and dedication. Jasper City
Manager Kent Cichon said,
"This is a great facility I
can't think of a better way to
welcome visitors to Florida."
Welcome center manager
Patrick Burke praised the
employees for their knowl-
edge of Florida tourism and
their willingness to help visi-
tors who stopped at the cen-
ter as he presented them
with a plaque of apprecia-
tion.
Nocera added, "The em-
ployees at this welcome cen-
ter are some of the best em-
ployees I have worked with
in over 30 years in the
tourism business."
Nocera then introduced

In preparation for the
2005 hurricane season, the
Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP)
published a notice of rule
development to increase
protection for Florida's nat-
ural resources and
strengthen environmental
management requirements
for phosphogypsum stack
systems. The proposed rule
requires operators of "gyp"
stack systems to better plan
for emergencies and take
actions to reduce on-site
water levels, avoid waste-
water spills, and provide
the State with timely infor-
mation.
The proposed rule
amendments include en-


during that "gyp" stack sys-
tems can operate in a man-
ner that avoids spills or dis-
charges of wastewater; re-
quiring on-site treatment
systems, or other water
consumption methods, are
sufficient to avoid spills of
process wastewater, during
or following periods of
chronic or catastrophic
rainfall; strengthening the
existing requirements for
emergency storage ponds
or containment areas; and
increasing the reporting re-
quirements of stack opera-
tors when on-site water lev-
els in the stacks begin to
reach high levels.

of PCS Phosphate in White


Inside Today

Inside this edition of the Jasper News we proudly present a
brand new publication called "Silver Pages." This new publi-
cation is a phone/service
directory put together
with senior readers in
mind. Because so many
directories are hard to
read, we have chosen to
make the listings larger
and more reader friend-
ly combined with many
ads detailing services
and discounts available
to senior readers, age
50 and better.


Springs, the "gyp" stacks
and the area around them
are continually maintained
in preparation of emer-
gency situations.
DEP has already imple-
mented a requirement for
hurricane preparedness
and emergency contin-
gency plans for each phos-
phate fertilizer plant and
associated mine and recla-
mation areas. As a result,
companies have improved
maintenance of dikes,
made provisions for back-
up power, increased inven-
tories of water treatment
chemicals, and created and
optimized use of emer-
gency process water hold-
ing or diversion areas.

er's ability to obtain a mar-
keting assistance loan

CCC-633EZ to the local
County FSA Office before
the loss of the beneficial in-
terest. File page two of the

Suwannee River Wayside
Park that is located on U.S.
Hwy. 41 on the Suwannee
River. The grant will go to-
ward improving the existing
picnic areas, bathrooms and
boat ramp. According to
City Manager Robert
Townsend there are also
plans to build a boardwalk
that will allow better access
to fishing and swimming.
"Providing funding for
parks allows local govern-
ments to preserve and pro-


tect Florida's natural areas
for families to enjoy," said
Gov. Bush. "Investing in
green space expands recre-
ational areas, connects com-
munities and improves our
quality of life."
"Florida's environment
should be preserved for the
enjoyment of its residents
and visitors," said Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection Secretary Colleen
Castille. "This funding pro-
vides local communities
with more Qpportunities to
grow their quality of life."


Administered by the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, the Florida Recre-
ation Development Assis-
tance Program is a competi-
tive grant program, provid-
ing funds to local communi-
ties for public outdoor recre-
ation. Over the last six years,
Florida has invested nearly
$161 million to improve local
park facilities through the
grant program a 50 percent
increase compared to the
previous five years fund-
ing more than 1,230 projects
statewide.


The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services, Division of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of
Forestry announced that it
will hold a sign-up for en-
rollment in the Forest Land
Recovery Program (FLRP)
through October 21.
This program, autho-
rized under the 2005 Mili-
tary Construction Appro-
priations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental
Appropriations Act, is
available to non-industrial
private forest landowners
on a 75-25 cost share basis.
Eligible practices include,
but are not limited to: site
preparation, tree planting,


and debris removal activi-
ties. Landowners who
own at least ten acres but
no more than 5,000 acres
of land in Florida and who
have a practice plan will
be eligible to receive fund-
ing assistance under FLRP.
A maximum of $25,000
will be available for each
qualifying landowner as
reimbursement for in-
curred expenses for ap-
proved practices. A total
of $6,000,000 will be avail-
able to forest landowners
statewide.
Almost half of the
state's 14 million acres of
forestland is owned by
private non-industrial for-
est landowners. After the


hurricane season of 2004,
many of these landowners
are in need of financial as-
sistance to help restore
their forestlands.
Landowners can obtain
application fornms from
their local Division' of
Forestry office and from
other cooperating agen-
cies. The Division of
Forestry's foresters will'

Helping small forest
landowners is the focus of
an upcoming workshop
for landowners in Hamil-
ton, Suwannee, and Co-
lumbia Counties.
"Growing trees is a very
solid enterprise with ex-
cellent investment poten-
tial on your land," said
Brian Cobble, Suwannee
County Forester. "How-
ever, many landowners
are not realizing the full
benefit from their land.
As a result, thousands of
acres are growing up in
underbrush that has little
or no value."

"School's Open


By Dawn Landrum Wilson
As children are begin-
ning a new school year,
some are experiencing
"firsts" in their young
lives. A kindergartner's
first day of school, a young
boy or girl walking to
school for the first time, a
child transitioning from el-
ementary to middle school,
or maybe a newly licensed
high-school student dri-
ving to school. These first-
time experiences can be
daunting challenges for
children and parents.
During the summer,
we've become accustomed
to driving on roads without
school buses and we've all
but forgotten the school bus,
stops and crossing zones on
our daily commutes to and
from work. But now, school
bus stops and crossing
zones are booming with
hundreds of kids, and dri-


vers need to pay extra at-
tention over the next few
weeks to ensure a safe start
to the school year.
Children are at a disad-
vantage in most cases be-
cause they are less visible to
motorists. Children are also
less capable than adults of
judging where and when
it's safe to cross a street and
less likely to fully under-
stand the consequences of
their potential misjudg-
ments. Statistics show that
one-fifth of all children age
14 and under who die in


- Drive Carefully"


motor vehicle crashes are
pedestrians. Many of these
fatalities are children who
ran across the street while
not paying attention to on-
coming vehicles.
During the months of
August and September,
AAA Auto Club South will
be carrying out its annual
"School's Open Drive
Carefully" educational
campaign, and the AAA
School Safety Patrol mem-
bers will be on full alert for
dangerous situations. We
ask that all drivers be on


full alert too. The best pro-
tection to avoid a fatal mis-
take is for drivers to slow
down. Every mile per hour
you reduce your speed al-
lows for greater reaction
time. This could be the dif-
ference between life and
death for a child who unex-
pectedly darts across a
street. That child could be
yours!
Whether it's the begin-
ning, middle, or end of the
year, always remember,
"School's Open Drive
Carefully."


Letter
to ,f


To the Editor,. '
To remember the ac-
tions of people who
exceed all expectations
is something we must '
never forget to do. One
such person is Edna
Burnham. She did some-
thing remarkable at the city
council meeting of July 12,
2005. She presented our city
manager with a check in
the amount of, $3,956.22.
What may you ask, was this
for?
Mrs. Burnham is one of
five city councilmen. Short-


ly after she was elected to
the office of a little over a
year ago she noticed that
her salary was much more
than the city charter pro-
vides ($100 per month) to
the tune of about $500 per
month.
Mrs. Burnham, you did
the right thing and we are


proud of you.
Now if only the other
tour councilmen plus
t \-wo ex-councilmen will
follow her example and
do what is right. We are
not talking chump
change here. The grand to-
tal since 1993 could be up-
wards of $250,000 or more.
Politicians are to serve to
the betterment of their con-
stituents, not to deprive
them of tax dollars or prop-
er representation.

Medicaid, the system that

reduced the number of pre-

Many common drugs taken

been dropped from the
availability list. Some exam-
ples are Micardis, Protonix,
Zoloft, Ritalin LA,
Klonopin, Topomax Well-

change affecting their med-
ications. Some of the people
on de-listed medicines will
have a couple of months to
consult with their physician
and find a replacement.
Many will not be able to get
a refill when their current
supply is exhausted. They
will need to get a prescrip-
tion for a covered drug as a
replacement. A complete
list of the dropped and
added medicines is avail-
able on the Internet at the
www.myflorida.com web-
site, in the Medicaid sec-
tion. Any Florida pharmacy
should also be able to give
information about any spe-
cific medication.
For those who find their
medicine discontinued
and no suitable replace-
ment, help is available
through the Hamilton
County Pharmacy Assis-
tance Program (HCRX-
PAP). Some manufacturers
will supply the drugs that
are not on the list at no
charge to lower income
and Medicaid recipients.
Funded by a grant from
The Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida, Inc., the
pharmacy program pro-
vides assistance with find-
ing programs for free or re-
duced price medication and
applying for them. The as-
sistance is free of charge.


Information and applica-
tions for the Medicare Ap-
proved Drug Discount
Card and the upcoming
Medicare Part D are also
available.
Those coming to the
HCRXPAP should bring:
prescriptions; Medicare or
other insurance cards; iden-
tification and verification of
income. The application
process generally takes four
to six weeks before any
medicine is received so in-
dividuals should be pre-
pared to purchase a
month's supply at their
pharmacy. Their doctor can
help with samples during
this application period. The
applicant is usually able to
get a year's supply of the
medicine before reapplying.
The program is located at
204 Northeast 1st Street, in
the Sandlin building. It is
open Monday through
Wednesday and Friday
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and
Thursday from 1 p.m. to 4
p.m. A representative is in
the White Springs library
on the first and third Thurs-
day of the month from 9:30
a.m. to 11:30 p.m. in the
morning. Appointments
are not needed. The office
telephone number is 792-
2143. The program is free of
charge and it is open to all
Hamilton County residents.

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Tom Durrance, Jasper Church of God


"For I am now ready to
be offered, and the time of
my departure is at hand,"
reads 2 Timothy 4:6. From
this particular portion of
scripture, we observe that
Paul realizes that he is
soon to be martyred for
the cause of Christ. His
life is uncertain. As we
continue to read in this
particular chapter, Paul's
friends had forsaken him
and he was left alone. But,
even facing death, his
strength was with the
Lord Jesus Christ.
It is almost certain that
with his religious back-
ground and training, he
was considering Psalms
23:3-6, where David
wrote: "He restoreth my,
soul: he leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for
his name's sake. Yea,
though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of
death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy
rod and thy staff they
comfort me. Thou pre-


parest a table before me in
the presence of mine ene-
mies: thou anointest my
head with oil; my cup
runneth over. Surely
goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of
my life: and I will dwell in
the house of the LORD for
ever."
Even if we face certain
death or destruction we
must be comforted in
knowing that the Lord is
able to sustain us. I am
sure that there are times
when we feel broken and
battered. Life has a way of
knocking you down and
knocking the wind out of
your sails. But consider
this; we only lose the bat-
tle when we are willing to
give up the fight.
We may truly feel cast
down at times but we are
not conquered. No, never
conquered. We can never
be conquered when we
are in Christ Jesus.
Paul faced the very
same struggles that you

Cast down but not conquered


and I face. There were
times when he was dis-
couraged and times of
hurt and despair.
In 2 Corinthians 1:8-10,
it reads, "For we would
not, brethren, have you
ignorant of our trouble
which came to us in Asia,
that we were pressed out
of measure, above
strength, insomuch that
we despaired even of life:
But we had the sentence
of death in ourselves, that
we should not trust in


ourselves, but in God
which raises the dead:
Who delivered us from so
great a death, and doth
deliver: in whom we trust
that he will yet deliver
us."
Paul and his missionary
team faced such terrible
trouble that they de-
spaired even of living;
they did not even want to
continue on living. Just
like us, they were facing
extreme hardships and
they wanted to give up.


But if we continue to read
on Paul recognized some-
thing tremendous.
In 2 Corinthians 4:8-9,
"We are troubled on every
side, yet not distressed;
we are perplexed, but not
in despair; Persecuted,
but not forsaken; cast.
down, but not destroyed."
Here we see Paul has a
changed attitude between
chapter one and chapter
four. We may ask why?
In 2 Corinthians 1:20-22,
"For all the promises of


God in him are yea, and in
him Amen, unto the glory
of God by us. Now he
which established us with
you in Christ, and hath
anointed us, is God; who
hath also sealed us, and
given the earnest of' the
Spirit in our hearts."
We also find that he
says in 2 Corinthians 2:14-
15, "Now thanks be unto
God, which always

About half of all the en-
ergy used in a home goes
toward heating and cool-
ing. There are many simple
ways to keep cooling costs
down. One easy way to
save on energy bills is to
install a high-efficiency
heating and cooling sys-
tem that is the right size for
the home. Cooling systems
today, even at the lowest
efficiency rates allowed by
the government, will al-
most always cost less to
operate than one installed
ten years ago.
To maximize energy sav-
ings and reduce pollution,
look for the EPA Energy

tioners are about 20 per-
cent more efficient than
standard efficiency prod-
ucts and can save home-
owners hundreds of dol-
lars over the equipment
lifetime.
An air conditioner's Sea-


keeping cool


sonal Energy Efficiency
Ratio (SEER) measures
how efficiently the unit
cools. The higher the rat-
ing, the more efficiently the
unit performs, resulting in
a lower utility bill.
Many factors can affect
long-term savings. Here
are some ways to save:
Use programmable ther-
mostats to set back the
temperature when no one
is awake or at home.
Change filters frequently
and dean indoor and out-
door coils. Most dealers of-
fer a regular maintenance
service that can keep the
system operating correctly.
When an air conditioner
is sized and installed prop-
erly, there can be up to a 40
percent savings on heating
and cooling bills.
When a new central air
conditioning outdoor unit
is installed, include a new,
equally efficient
"matched" indoor unit.


Be sure the home is ade-
quately insulated.
In the spring and fall,
check the seals around
windows and doors and
then seal them with a qual-
ity caulk.
Make sure ductwork is
properly installed for
greater efficiency. Also
check for leaks, mold, dirt
and foreign matter in the
duct system.
When purchasing a new
system, select a brand
name with a reputation for
quality and dependability.
Prevent air loss by in-
stalling weather stripping
around drafty areas on
windows and doors.
Keep the thermostat
turned up. Each extra de-
gree can add four to five
percent to the cooling bill
depending on the age of
the air conditioner.

Fuel-efficient driving tips


With gas prices continu-
ing at high levels, it's impor-
tant to take advantage of
every possible option for im-
proving fuel economy.
There are a number of ways
to boost a vehicle's gas
mileage, most of which can
easily be worked into every-
day driving:
Driving between 55 and
65 mph offers the most fuel
efficiency on the highway.
Using cruise control when-
ever possible also will help
ensure maximum efficiency.
Increasing highway speed
from 55 to 75 mph increases
gas consumption by almost
20 percent.
Using the transmission's
overdrive gear slows engine
speed, which not only saves
fuel, but also reduces engine
wear.
Be sure to shut off and un-
plug all power-consuming


Check tire pressure at least once a month. Under-inflated
tires can cause a three percent increase in fuel consumption.


accessories, such as phone
chargers, air conditioning,
TVs and DVD players, be-
fore turning off the vehicle.
Doing so decreases the en-
gine load the next time you
start your vehicle.
A poorly tuned engine
can ruin fuel efficiency. Be
sure to follow a manufactur-


er's vehicle maintenance
and tune-up schedule.
Check the air filter regular-
ly. Make sure spark plugs
are firing properly and en-
gine timing is correct. Al-
though results vary based
on the kinds of repairs done,
fuel efficiency can be im-
proved by up to 40 percent.

causeth us to triumph in
Christ, and maketh mani-
fest the savour of his
knowledge by us in every
place. For we are unto
God a sweet savour of
Christ, in them that are
saved, and in them that
perish:"
We must accept and be-
lieve within our heart that
our God is a conquering
God and a consuming fire
of salvation. There is al-
ways a battle to fight and
lands to conquer and we
accomplish this not with-
in ourselves but with the
spirit of Christ that
dwells within us. In 2
Corinthians 11:24-28,
Paul gives a highlight of
his ministry: "Of the Jews
five times received I forty
stripes save one. Thrice
was I beaten with rods,
once was I stoned, thrice I
suffered shipwreck, a
night and a day I have
been in the deep; In jour-
neyings often, in perils of
waters, in perils of rob-
bers, in perils by mine
own countrymen, in per-
ils by the heathen, in per-
ils in the city, in perils in
the wilderness, in perils
in the sea, in perils
among false brethren; In
weariness and painful-
ness, in watching often,
in hunger and thirst, in
fastings often, in cold and
nakedness. Beside those
things that are without,
that which cometh upon
me daily, the care (bur-
den) of all the churches."
Paul had immense re-
f


sponsibilities and bur-
dens to bear. Yet he con-
tinued on for the prize of
Christ. No matter what
the circumstance he
fought on. Battle weary
and broken he continued
to fight.
We must be like Paul
today and fight on and
on. Though we are weary
and tired we must not
give up the fight. John
wrote in the Book of I
John 4:4, "Ye are of God,
little children, and have
overcome them: because
greater is he that is in
you, than he that is in the
world."
Paul wrote in Romans
8:28, "And we know that.
all things work together
for good to them that
love God, to them who
are the called according
to his purpose."
Finally we are remind-
ed of Paul writing to us in
2 Corinthians 4:16-18,
"For which cause we
faint not (we do not lose
heart); but though our
outward man perish, yet
the inward man is re-
newed day by day. For
our light affliction, which
is but for a moment, wor-
keth for us a far more ex-
ceeding and eternal
weight of glory; While we
look not at the things
which are seen, but at the
things which are not
seen: for the things which
are seen are temporal; but
the things which are not
seen are eternal. You
might feel cast down to-
day, but in Jesus we are
never conquered."

Ronald McDonald House: making a


difference for 30 years


Imagine a
three-year-old
little girl hap-
py and
healthy one
day, fighting
for her life
leukemia the
next. Her fain-
ily is there
with her every
moment -
sleeping in the
hospital on
waiting room
chairs, con-
stant stress
and concern,
nowhere to go
that could al-
low just a
short reprieve.
In 1974, that
was exactly
what hap-
pened to the '
Hill family. Ronald Mcdonald Hoi
Fred and. Fran seriously ill children.
Hill, parents
of daughter
Kim, heard of an idea offered by Dr.
Audrey Evans for a house where fam-
ilies could stay close to their hospital-
ized child. They, together with the
Philadelphia Eagles football team and.
many others, worked with McDon-
ald's to host a fundraiser that led to
the opening of the first Ronald Mc-
Donald House in Philadelphia a
home-away-from-home for families
whose seriously ill children are re-
ceiving medical treatment at nearby
hospitals.
Thirty years later, nearly 240
Ronald McDonald Houses exist
throughout the world with more than
150 Houses in the United States. The
Ronald McDonald House program is
the cornerstone of Ronald McDonald
House Charities (RMHC), whose core
programs also include the Ronald
McDonald Family Room, located in
hospitals, offering a homelike,, safe
haven where families can reflect,


use is a noteworthy charity that helps far

shower or rest; and the Ronald Mc-
Donald Care Mobile, a fleet of state-
of-the-art vehicles that deliver cost-ef-
fective medical, dental and health ed-
ucation services directly to under-
served children in their own neigh-
borhoods.
While these programs offer comfort
and care to millions of children and
families around the world, there is
still more to do. RMHC welcomes
everyone's help to continue its mis-
sion of creating, finding and support-
ing programs that directly improve
the health and well-being of children.
Each new volunteer or donation
means that one more child and family
can be helped.
Getting involved is as easy as R-M-
H-C.
R: Reach Out Contact a RMHC
Chapter and/or House to donate
items that make a Ronald McDonald
House a home. New toys, books and
games are always welcome additions,


you can, too
Sand are sure to
brighten a
child's day.
Canned goods
and non-per-
ishables are
also great do-
nations for
Houses, and
make it easy
bfor families to
fix quick
meals and
snacks.
M: Make a
Difference -
Celebrate 30
years of the
f h N Ronald Mc-
Donald House
program by
contacting a
RMHC Chap-
ter or Ronald
McDonald
House to find
out how to
mnilies stay close to their contribute by
donating time
and talent to
help children
and families in the community.
H: House Bring a group of friends
and/or family to a Ronald McDonald
House and cook a meal, play with the
children, help with the garden, read
books to the kids, knit blankets or
bake cookies with the families.
C: Charitable Donations Raise
funds to donate to RMHC or a nearby
RMHC Chapter and/or House. En-
courage co-workers, friends and fam-
ily to donate by putting spare change
in the RMHC collection canisters in
McDonald's restaurants. Take part in
World Children's Day the annual
fundraiser held November 20 in Mc-
Donald's restaurants around the
world.
These are only a few of the ways to
become involved in RMHC and cele-
brate 30 years of the Ronald McDon-
ald House program. To find out

Internet safety

tips for parents


Internet usage continues
to increase among kids, but
many parents are not sure
how to keep pace with what
their children are doing on-
line and what simple steps
they should take to help en-
sure their child's Internet
safety.
According to Pew Internet
& American Life Project sur-
veys, 60 percent of America's
children, more than 43 mil-
lion under age 18, use the In-
ternet. However, 97 percent
of households with children
aren't using parental controls,
according to the National Cy-
ber Security Alliance.
Since kids now go online
for everything from school-
work to socializing, today's
parents can use a few easy
tools to ensure Internet safety
at home. The following secu-
rity tips can help:
Seek an Internet service
provider with parental con-
trols. Several providers in-
clude safety features that al-
low parents to create
boundaries that protect kids
from wandering into inap-
propriate "online territory.
For example, SBC Yahoo!
DSL and Dial
(http: //sbc.yahoo.com) of-
fer parental controls that al-
low parents to block unsuit-
able Web content and the
ability to control which indi-
viduals are able to send
their children e-mail and in-


stant messaging.
For added convenience
and flexibility, parents can
use any Web-connected
computer to manage control
settings, review their chil-
dren's Internet usage and act
upon their kids' requests to
gain access to specific sites.
For instance, if a child
wants to visit MTV.com
from the home computer
but the site is blocked, he or
she can e-mail a parent at
work to ask permission. The
parent can then either grant
or deny access.
Some parental controls
now allow for personalized
safety settings for each child,
from youngsters to teens, so
that families can use the In-
ternet with maximum flexi-
bility and security.
Go over the basics with
children to reinforce good
habits such as not opening
an e-mail from an unknown
source, avoiding giving per-
sonal information to
strangers and telling a par-
ent when unwanted content
comes their way.
Parents teach their kids
not to accept candy from
strangers and to look both
ways before crossing the
street. The Internet safety
and security tools available
today can help parents
make sure their children are
also safe when they go on-
line.

Here is a combination that will be bringing Trojan fans to their feet a lot this season. The
outstanding Trojans quarterback Eddie Battles hands the ball off to senior runningback
and team leader Chance Windham to run behind the block of Doc Henry All three look
very sharp in the early going and will be creating havoc on all their opponents both of-
fensively and defensively. There are not many that hit any harder than this trio, whether
they are running straight at the opponents or taking them down.

Coach Green has welcomed the student body at Jasper to participate in the football pro-
gram. That goes for the ladies too. Ashley Cribbs will be handling the extra points this
year. She is well respected by her peers and works very hard at preparing herself to be
a huge asset for the 2005 edition of the Trojans.


COMMENTARY

Memo from a Trojan fan

Trojans making work fun
B,.Terr,, Hedge.peth Sports Reporter


A new era begins


I was able to take in the Tro-
jans second day of practice in
pads this past week. It is al-
ways a pleasure to spend time
with the Trojans and I was able to
meet the new coaches and some
players such as Doc Hendry that I
was really wanting to meet.
I was not disappointed in the
practice. Hard hitting by Hendry,
Chance Windham and a new play-
er that has come to Jasper from Mi-
ami, Blake Daniels, certainly made
it a fun experience. Daniels is the
cousin of NBA star Marquis
Daniels from the Dallas Mavericks
and has several other outstanding
professional athletes in his family.
Something tells me that Blake is
going to be something special him-
self. He looked sharp.
I like this Trojan team for many
reasons. One special quality is how
much praise each of the pla.wers
gives to each other, and this is be-
hind their back. One player that
many of the Trojans have the ut-
most respect for is Mike Casen.
Casen will probably be coming in
as a backup, but many of the Tro-
jans are quick to tell me how much
heart this Trojan has and extra ef-
fort is never something you have


to ask for.
The Trojans senior leadership of
Windham, Hendry, Pablo Garcia,
Jonard Smith, Desmond Howard-
and Cam Cohen is impressive.
Coach Larue Lieupo certainly
has been doing her part as usual
for the Trojans. I had left the prac-
tice after the first session, but-
should have stuck around. Kyler
Hall a FSU player, made a surprise
visit to give the Trojans a motiva- -
tional talk and left the guys with a
lot to build on. Hall is the son of
Ron Hall, the current Suwannee-
County coach and a former Hamil-
ton County coach. Coach Lieupo-
has been working just as hard off
the field as on to make sure the
Trojans have every opportunity to -
take advantage of.
The Trojans are one week away
from preseason action in Mayo.-
Jasper will face off against Mayo
and a new entry into what is now
jamboree action, Perry. Each team -
will play two halves of football. It
should be fun.
Trojan fans need to make the trip -
and get the Trojans fired up right
from the start. This team deserves -
your support after the hard work_
and dedication they have made.

It was certainly great to see Doc Hendry on the practice
field and weightroom as a Trojan. Hendry plays hard and is
always looking for someone to hit. There was times that
Hendry was not able to move his opponent, but he kept
coming back for more with the purpose of reaching his goal.
This is going to be a huge hitter for the Trojans this year. He
plays with a lot of attitude and determination, and will be
depended on for his senior leadership. Trojan fans are go-
ing to be treated to a great defensive player and a key
blocker on the offensive line every time he takes the field.

The Tro-
jans hate
worked tard
over the summer and
are ready as a unit to take
on their tough schedule.


Desmond Howard is another one of those seniors that will
be coming out of the backfield for the Trojans this year.
Howard looked sharp at Doak Campbell Stadium and has
looked equally impressive on the practice field. The inten-
sity and the desire to compete and provide needed senior
leadership is another reason Trojan fans need to fill the
seats when Jasper takes the field this year. Trojans like
Howard will certainly make it worth the ticket price to come
out and cheer the Trojans on.


There is never too much attention given when the
groundskeepers prepare the fields, but this is always an ex-
citing moment. Getting the football fields in order for battle
is the beginning of the much awaited football season. Rus-
sell Fry gets the Trojans field ready for play here. Fry takes
a lot of pride in preparing the field and is very strict on the
use of the facility. It is those efforts that are going to make
the Trojans very proud to host opponents this year.


.. .. .












A new era begins at Jasper. The Trojans new head coach
Corey Green has the Jasper football team believing in
themselves. The Trojans have a tough schedule this year,
but this team is going to be exciting and a tough test for
any opponent in the state. Coach Green has not been get-
ting too much sleep these days. His hard work, enthusi-
asm and total dedication to the Trojans have filtered down
to the Trojans which is what will make this football season
special. Coach Green asked his team to give total com-
mitment right from the start to a successful season. He
does not want any Trojan to be happy with being
mediocre, nor to be satisfied with anything except being
the best.


Every great coach has outstanding assistants. Trace Laing,
JT Clark and Travis McCullough will be a big boost to the
goal of a district title this year. McCullough graduated from
Madison County where he had a successful high school ca-
reer. He also served as an offensive coordinator for the
Quincey Shanks and was the defensive coordinator for the
Taylor County Middle School football program. This is a no-
non-sense type of coach that eyes the goal of getting the
most out of his players and pushes the players to be the
best they can be. Coach McCullough, an FSU graduate,
will be a huge asset to Coach Green to begin the new Tro-
jans era. Coach Clark is a volunteer coach that is looking to
gain experience. He graduated from Lake City High School
where he played under the tutelage of Danny Green, the fa-
ther of the current Trojans coach. He has the utmost respect
for both Corey and Danny and plans on a coaching career
after he graduates from North Florida Community College in
December. The Trojans are really appreciative of all the vol-
unteer time coach Clark takes in support of their team.

Top 10 precautions for


running in the heat


As outdoor temperatures
increase, so does the risk for
developing heat-related ill-
nesses such as heat cramps,
heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. That's why runners
need to take special precau-
tions when running in
warm weather. "Of all the
adversities that runners and
marathoners face," said
Mindy Solkin, owner and
head coach of The Running
CenterTM, "heat is the No. 1
offender because it can
bring on two conditions that
can negatively affect your
performance overheating
and dehydration." Because
running in the heat exacer-
bates both, Solkin recom-
mends taking the following
precautions:
It takes approximately
two weeks of consistent
running in the heat and hu-
midity to get acclimated to
warmer conditions.
Remember that thirst is
not an indicator of dehydra-
tion. Once you are thirsty,
you are already low on flu-
ids. Indicators of dehydra-
tion are an elevated heart
rate during and after your
run and dark, golden-col-
ored urine. After your run,
keep drinking fluids until
your urine is clear.
During your run, drink
about four to eight ounces of
water and/or sports drink
every 15 to 20 minutes.

Aaah, summer. The
sun, the surf, the thou-
sands of weeds invading
lawns and gardens like
ants at a picnic. When the
weather's warm, weeds
pop up so quickly, it is al-
most as if they are mock-
ing us and our well-tend-
ed grass. Thanks to clever
tips and innovative tools,
we no longer have to let
the ever-present little
buggers overrun the
backyard.
"When I was a kid, my
parents used to pay me a
penny a weed to pull
weeds from our yard,"
said Michael Miller, pres-
ident of backyard tool
company Hound Dog
Products. "I'd get down
in the dirt and use one of
those old fashioned, long
handled forks to pry
them loose. Boy, did I
hate that."
Those hours spent dig-
gin}g in the yard eventual-
IV paid off. Miller went
on to market the Weed
I loitml weeder, a long-
hantl led tool designed
imitcl like a miniature
'Irct r.tIde. With six steel
lit :t IItti go into the
,r tiiit( l and grab the


roots of the weed, lock on
and then pull the weed
out by its root, the Weed
Hound can extract more
than 100 weeds in just 15
minutes.
Having the right tool is-
n't the only path to a
weed-free yard. Accord-
ing to Miller, there are
plenty of tips to make
pulling weeds less of a
backbreaking, sweat-in-
ducing affair:
It's much easier to re-
move a weed when the
soil is moist. Wait until
after a light rain to mini-
mize effort.
Once a weed is pulled,
don't let it lay on the
grass, or it may spread its
seeds and sprout a whole
new generation of weeds.
Allowing the lawn to
grow a little taller than
usual helps crowd out
weeds. Dandelions and
other common broadleaf
weeds can't compete with
vigorously growing grass
plants.
Keep in mind that
many weeds grow when
soil becomes compacted,
such as on play areas or
lawns with regular foot
traffic.


Weigh yourself before
and after your run. Drink 16
ounces of fluid for every
pound of weight lost. *Im-
portant note do not use
this as a method of weight
loss!
Apply a sunscreen of at
least SPF 15. Make sure that
it is a non-drip formula that
won't run into your eyes.
Wear sunglasses that filter
UVA and UVB rays and/or
wear a cap with a visor.
Wear light-colored, mi-
cro-fiber clothing.
Run when your shadow is
taller than you are, and
when the sun is not high in
the sky. If you run in the
morning, you'll avoid the
heat, but may encounter a
higher humidity. The air
quality is also better in the
morning, since ozone levels
increase soon after dawn,
peak at midday, and then
again in the early evening.
Avoid running from noon
till 3 p.m.
Eat salty foods and drinks
such as pretzels and tomato
juice.
Check the Heat Index
Chart on therunningcen-
ter.com for apparent tem-
perature. This number cal-
culates the air temperature
with the relative humidity
to determine what the tem-
perature feels like and if
there is a risk of a heat-relat-
ed illness.


Tips for a


weed-free


backyard

Weeds move in when
grass is sparse. If shade
prevents grass growth,
consider laying shade-
tolerant groundcovers in-
stead, such as bark or
gravel over landscaping
fabric.
When looking for a
weed-pulling tool, pre-
vent stress on the back by
choosing one that doesn't
require bending or stoop-
ing.
If chemicals must be
used, be sure to follow all
directions carefully.
Overuse can be expen-
sive, and misuse can do
more harm than good.
Adding two inches of
peat moss to the top six
inches of dirt in a garden
makes pulling weeds eas-
ier because it loosens the
soil.
Try to avoid damaging
the turf or leaving a large
divot when removing
weeds. If the removal of a
large weed does leave a
gap in the lawn, borrow a
proven technique used by
golf courses: Level the
soil and sprinkle grass
seed into the bare spot
before another weed gets
a chance to germinate.

tection, Northeast District Office at 7825
Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200, Jacksonville,
Florida 32256-7590. Any written comments

lic Notice.
A person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statues. The petition must con-
tain the information set forth below and must
be filed (received) in the Office of General


Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida, 32399-3000. Petitions filed by the

teen days of receipt of this notice of intent,
whichever occurs first. Under section
120.60(3), however, any person who asked
the Department for notice of agency action
may file a petition within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the address in-
dicated above at the time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a petition within the ap-
propriate time period shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to request an administra-
tive determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 F.S., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent intervention will be only at the
approval of the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number
of the petitioner, the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioners representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the address for ser-
vice purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when petitioner re-
ceived notice of the agency action or pro-
posed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts the peti-
tioner contends warrant reversal or modific'-
tion of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action petitioner
wishes the agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material
facts upon which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the Department's
final action may be different from the position
taken by it in this notice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any such
final decision of the Department on the appli-
cation have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance with
the requirements set forth above.

Attorney General warns of phony car buyer scam


Attorney General Char-
lie Crist issued a con-
sumer alert warning
Floridians of an emerging
scam in which con artists
target individuals trying
to sell their vehicles' and
other items.
The Attorney General's
Office has received nu-
merous complaints from
consumers across the state
reporting the overpay-
ment scam. In this
scheme, a thief selects the
victim after browsing
through classified ads for
a car or other large-ticket
item offered for sale. The
thief pretends to be an in-
terested buyer from out of
town and sends payment
in the form of a cashier's
check, .money order or
personal check. The pay-
ment typically arrives in


an amount greater than
the purchase price.
, The ,con artist then ,asks
the seller to wire the over-
paid amount to another
party or back to the "pur-
chasers," sometimes ex-
plaining that the purchas-
er lives in another country
and the third party will
use the money to ship the
vehicle overseas. After the
money is wired, the origi-
nal check bounces or turns
out to be a high-quality
counterfeit, and the inno-
cent consumer loses the
money.
"This is yet another ex-
ample of crooks taking
advantage of people's
trusting nature," said
Crist. "Unfortunately,
Floridians must constant-
ly be on the alert for peo-
ple who might be looking


for a quick way to make
an easy buck. If con-
sumers are aware of these
scams, they can better
protect themselves from
becoming the next vic-
tims."
The Attorney General's
Office offers the following
tips to avoid falling prey
to this scam: Know who
you are dealing with. In-
dependently confirm the
buyer's name, address
and telephone number.
Keep in mind that most le-
gitimate buyers would
want to see a car before
buying it.
Never accept payment
for more than the' pur-
.chase price of the item, no
matter how tempting.


Never wire money to the
buyer or a third party at
the buyer's request. If the
buyer insists that you
wire back funds, end the
transaction immediately -
legitimate buyers won't
pressure to send money.
If possible, accept only
cash. If you do accept a
check for payment, do not
turn over the car until you
verify that the check has
cleared the issuing bank.

a local bank or a bank

ing bank.

White Springs







By Johnny Bullard


The lyric from the old
B.J. Thomas song, "Rain-
drops keep falling' on my
head," seemed apropos
for this past weekend. In
the words of my Daddy,
we had "toad stranglers"
on Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday of last week out
our way. Some people
loathe rainy weather, but I
love it. Growing up on a
farm, I have seen the time
when a rain was such a
blessing. Even though it
was hard work, I have
wonderful memories of
those days in our beloved
Hamilton County in a time
and a way of life that is
now, for the most part,
"Gone with the Wind."
Sweet Home Baptist
Church celebrated the
113th anniversary this
past weekend with a series
of celebratory events.
Sweet Home, founded in
1892, located in Black Bay,
on 25-A, known as the
River Road, north of
White Springs, has served
as a Lighthouse for the
Faithful for over a century.
Many old family names
who have long been asso-
ciated with the church can
still be found on the
church rolls and actively
serving such as Udell,
Lumpkin, Williams,
Roberts, Mizell, New-
some, Webb, and I could
go on and on. Many
thanks to Jim Udell of
White Springs, for provid-
ing me with a printed his-
tory of the church. I will
share more about Sweet
Home and its history in
next week's column.
Rhett Bullard of White
Springs, attended a state
conference of "Blazing
Spear," in Fort Lauderdale
over the weekend. Blazing
Spear is an organization,
very much like the Uni-
versity of Florida's Blue
Key, but this is a Florida
State University organiza-
tion. Rhett stated that is
was great sharing visits
with old friends from
throughout the- state of
Florida.
The August Cracker
Coffeehouse was a suc-
cess. Many thanks to Larry
Hoover, Pat Cromer, and
all the staff at Stephen
Foster for all their help in
making this event a huge
success. Jerry Lawrence
and I were pleased to have
Ken Buchanan and his
grandson, from West Palm
Beach, visit with us. We
were delighted to hear Jay
and Linda Willingham
perform who were joined
on stage by Cliff Adams
and Jay Hall. I also had a
visit with Cathy Aiken.


Jerry Lawrence and I sang
one song with them. The
"Lamplighters," a musical
ensemble from First Unit-
ed Methodist Church of
Live Oak did a number,
and was delighted to see
Dr. Connie Steele per-
forming with them, along
with Linda Clardy Rush of
Live Oak. Linda is a
Hamilton County native.
As always, Larry Hoover
did a marvelous job coor-
dinating and hosting this
event and everyone did a
superb job.
Long Branch Congrega-
tional Methodist Church
celebrated their Home-
coming Service on Sun-
day. I know everyone had
a wonderful time celebrat-
ing. The pastor of the
church is Rev. Tommy
Lindsey. God Bless all of
the members of Long
Branch Congregational
Methodist Church. We ap-
preciate your faithfulness
to our community.
The official Grand
Opening for the Joseph 0.
Striska Welcome Center
was held on Friday, Au-
gust 5. I appreciation
everyone who worked to
make this event a success,
especially the staff at the
Welcome Center. I sang a
few songs while Delores
Howell accompanied me
on the piano. Delores al-
ways does a wonderful
job. Many thanks to Col.
Davis and our ROTC
Troop from Hamilton
County High School. I am
always so proud of this
group of young people.
Congratulations to
White Springs Police Chief
Joe Subic. The Town of
White Springs and the
Stephen Foster CSO host-
ed a very nice reception
for Subic at the Stephen
Foster Museum. The event
was expertly catered by
Rheba Lee and Jan Hunter.
We have been blessed in
Hamilton County with
many outstanding service
men and women, and I do
hope, at some time in the
future, we will have a Vet-
eran's Memorial located
somewhere in the Town of
White Springs.
The thanks of SHE is ex-
tended to PCS: White
Springs, for hosting a
wonderful beginning of
the year luncheon. We ap-
preciate Rob Wolfe from
PCS for joining us. Rob is
a great supporter of our
school, and he always
does a wonderful job.
Thanks Rob and PCS. God

er," we are "changing lives
through quality educa-
tion."
Speaking of Joe Subic, I
appreciate him being so
gracious in letting me
know about parking near a
fire hydrant this past Fri-
day on River Street. I did-
n't realize I was breaking
the law, and I won't park
there again. There are
some parking and motorist
visibility issues the Town
of White Springs needs to
address. In my opinion,
the Town should post a
sign near the fire hydrant
stating that it is illegal to
park there, in addition, the
city statutes should be
changed to allow only two
hour parking anywhere
along the parking areas on
US 41 including the area in
front of the White Springs
United Methodist Church
and any place downtown.
Thirdly, and I will be fin-
ished, there should be
some kind of "footage"
from a major right of way
like US.41 where motorists
should have to park. The
intersection of US 41 and
CR 135, the Woodpecker
Route, and the S&S Store
on the South end of town
is extremely dangerous be-
cause motorist visibility is
limited. I know some peo-
ple won't like me writing
This, and I am sorry if it of-
fends anyone, but it
should be addressed.
These are major safety is-
sues.
The Town of White
Springs deserves major
laurels for their support of
the school, and the im-
provements made in the
community with new side-
walks, etc.. but these traf-
fic issues need to be ad-
dressed. Nick and Cathy
Lyras depend on tourists
and patrons for their busi-
ness at the Telford. I
would hate for someone
who was visiting our town
to receive a traffic ticket,
because they were not
aware of parking laws. If a
violation is going to be en-
forced, then make certain
the area is posted with the
proper information. That
is all.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Nick
Buonvino, Jasper. The
family has the prayers of
our community.
Please remember the fol-
lowing in prayer: Virginia

Payne, Sister Ruby Martin,

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


First of all, sorry there
were computer problems
last week. I missed writing
the column and am thankful
that you told me you missed
getting to read it. Many of
you told me they read the
explanation of why it was
not in last week; it made me
even more concerned about
getting one ready for this
week. My thanks to the
Jasper News for explaining
the absence of the Notes.
Some of the material from
last week was lost "in
space." If you had given me
some information that did
not get in, please call and re-
mind me. I do not want to
miss anything you do for
me, this column would not
be possible were it not for all
of you. My contacts with
you are what keep me doing
this, my love for doing it and
my love for you. For in-
stance last week I met up
with a couple of friends at
the grocery store and when
we spoke they told me they
missed my column; that is
such an inspiration to me to
keep going.
As I looked out my
kitchen window this morn-
ing, getting ready for the
day, there was a reminder
that today is the first day the
students will be going back,
or starting school. The pic-
ture was clear as to what lies
ahead. There was one small
child, evidently going for
the first day of school and
there were two adults ac-
companying her and several
other children walking with
them. What an experience.
Some excited, some wonder-
ing and all facing new expe-
riences. We hope it will be a
good day for each and every
one, those away and those
left at home.
Last week I attended the
open house at Central, with
my last grandchild entering
the first grade, her brother
entering the fourth grade,
and their mother teaching
fifth grade. The other two


grandchildren are at HCHS,
one a 10th grader and one an
eighth grader. As I talked
with faculty and staff at Cen-
tral it came to my mind that
this is my 40th year for being
at school on opening day.
The first time was at Jasper
Elementary when it was lo-
cated in the back buildings
at the "old high school." We
have come a long way, seen
many changes, experienced
wonderful years, some con-
flicts, and have always sur-
vived and enjoyed each new
year, shared many joys and
sorrows with friends and
loved ones. There will be tri-
als and joys again this year,
we will survive and wish the
best for all who are in-
volved. This means every-
one in Hamilton County.
Dr. Benjamin Kennedy
spent the past few days with
his mother, Mrs. Pauline
Kennedy. They enjoyed a
pleasant family weekend.
Dr. Kennedy has just retired
and is enjoying spending
time with his family, his
wife, Sally, his children and
grandchildren. He will be
supporting his wife, Sally, in
her ministry. Sally is a song
writer and author. We have
a copy of her book 52 Little
Parables from IRELAND
(Ireland is her maiden
name). We had purchased
copies of the book a while
back and had evidently giv-
en them away. Mrs. Pauline
gave me another copy,
signed by Sally and auto-
graphed by Mrs. Pauline. It
is supposed to be a devo-
tionaJ book for 52 weeks,
one a week (hence the 52 Lit-
tle Parables), but I had to
read the entire book first,
then start over to do it week-
ly, each one with a blessing.
She now has another book
and we hope to be able to get
a copy of it also.
Betty Jean Knolla's son,
Peter, has been spending
some time with her. He is
having some surgery done
on his hand. We have been


privileged to have them at-
tending church at the Pres-
byterian Church. Peter is in
real estate. I believe he is
spending some time in Mari-
anna and in Lake City while
the surgery is being complet-
ed. Betty Jean has a daugh-
ter who is a doctor in Savan-
nah, another daughter Pe-
ter's twin sister, who lives in
Tahoe.
Ladies from First Baptist
Church and friends in White
Springs had a ladies day out
a few weeks ago, going to
Steinhatchee to enjoy deli-
cious seafood at Roy's and
stopping along the way to
shop and look. Those mak-
ing the trip were Shirley
Deen, Gloria Hunter, Bar-
bara Beauchamp, Irene Mor-
gan, Mildred Floyd, Mildred
Miller, Cheryl Skipper, Joyce
Norton (Valdosta), Ruby
Shaw, Juanita Dees and Car-
olyn Ogburn. They had a
previous trip to Pebble Plan-
tation, Thomasville. On this
trip they ate at the Farmers
Market; we understand the
food is great.
The class of Jasper High
School, 1955, is planning a 50
year class reunion, starting
on Friday night, Sept. 9. On
Saturday morning breakfast
will be at H&F and the re-
union dinner will be Satur-
day evening at the Jasper
Woman's Club, with Elvis
(Ted McMullen) entertain-
ing. Sunday morning the
group will attend church at
First United Methodist of
Jasper, where a classmate,
Dr. Charles Courtoy will be
bringing the message.
Sounds like a great week-
end. If anyone knows the
whereabouts of Don Cordell
or Bobby Jordan, get in
touch with Irene Morgan;
those are the only two that
have not been contacted. The
committee has really been at
work.
We just learned of the
death of Nick Buonvino and
express our sympathy to Pat
and the family.
Call and bring me up to
date, let me know if some of
your information has been
missed by not getting a col-
umn last week.
Let me hear from you.

Be prepared for the


dog days of summer


The North Central Flori-
da Chapter of the Ameri-
can Red Cross wants local
residents to be prepared
to handle the extreme heat
that occurs in our area
during the sweltering
days of August. Here are
some heat safety tips:
Dress for the heat. Wear
lightweight, light colored
clothing. Light colors re-
flect away from the sun's
energy. Also, it is a good
idea to wear hats or carry
umbrellas to block the
sun's rays.


Drink water. Carry wa-
ter or juice at all times and
drink continuously. Avoid
alcohol and caffeine
drinks which dehydrate
the body. Also avoid salt
tablets unless directed to
take them by a physician.
Eat small amounts and
eat more often. Avoid
high-protein foods, which
increase metabolic heat.
Slow down. Avoid
strenuous activity outside.
If participating in strenu-
ous activities, do it during
the coolest part of the day,


which is usually in the
morning between 4 a.m
and 7 a.m.
Stay indoors when pos-
sible. If air-conditioning is
not available, stay on the
lowest floor out of the
sunshine. Remember elec-
tric fans do not cool, they
simply circulate the air.
Be a good neighbor.
During heat waves, check
on elderly residents in the
neighborhood and those
who do not have air con-
ditioning.
Learn Red Cross First


Aid and CPR. While the
above tips can help pre-
vent emergencies, it is
crucial to know what to
do if an emergency arises.
For information about
CPR, First Aid and other
health and safety classes,
contact Jackie Lavinder at
the North Central Florida
Chapter of the American
Red Cross, at 352-376-
4669 x 17, or Glory
Cantrell at the Suwannee
Valley Branch of the
Chapter in Lake City at

Mothers Against Drunk Driving


Cadet Kyle Altmix was not pictured in last week's Jasper News. Here he is shown on the
drill pad preparing to drill the flight.


Mothers Against Drunk
Driving (MADD) wants to
remind the public that those
who drive drunk are not
only making roadways more
dangerous for other drivers -
they are endangering the
lives of children in their own


cars. From 1997 to 2002, more
than 1,500 children died in
crashes while riding with a
drinking driver and 68 per-
cent were unrestrained.
MADD recommends cre-
ating tougher child endan-
germent DUI/DWI laws and


increasing awareness in the
legal system. Too often
adults who drive drunk with
children are not charged
with child endangerment.
To support stronger child
endangerment laws, visit

Smitty's named 2005 Small Business of the Year


he Lake City/Columbia
County Chamber of Com-
merce presented the pres-
tigious Small Business of the Year
award to Bob and Andrea Smith of
Smitty's Western Store. The award
was presented at the Chamber of
Commerce's quarterly luncheon
which was held at Quality Inn and
Conference Center on May 10.
"We were honored to receive the
award and can't believe the calls,
cards, flowers and gift baskets that we
have received," said Andrea Smith.
As you walk around the store it is
very evident how involved the Smiths
are in the community, by the numer-

FWC uses

cutting-edge

technology in

Florida bear

road-kill

impact study


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has released the results
of an assessment of road im-
pacts using genetic analysis of
nearly 5,500 bear hair samples
snared from barbed wire amid
Florida's six major bear popula-
tions. FWC conducted the study
for the Florida Department of
Transportation to learn more
about the impacts of roads and
bear road kills on bear popula-
tions in the study areas.
While the study wasn't done
in Suwannee County, Suwannee
County has had sightings of
bears, including one several
years ago where a mother bear
and her cub were sighted around
town for several days and then
found in a tree across the street
from the Suwannee Democrat.
They were severely dehydrated,
but were safely extracted and re-
turned to Taylor County where
it is believed their habitat is.
The study examined six bear
populations (Apalachicola,
Ocala, Osceola, Big Cypress,
Eglin, and St. Johns River) from
February 2001 to June 2005.
Scientists set up 7,000 snare
sites made of barbed wire
strands encircling a lure. Barbs
snared clumps of hair from
bears as they climbed through
the wires to get to the lure.
Biologists then sent the hair
samples to an outside lab where
state-of-the-art genetic tech-
niques were used to determine
the sex of the bear and a DNA
profile. They used these data in
population models to generate
population estimates and to cal-
culate impact of road kills on
bear populations.

FWC


Continued From Page 1C

The Wildlife Foundation of
Florida provided funding for
the genetic analysis component
of the study.
"The study showed that, on
average, road-kill mortality
rates for Florida black bear
populations are similar to those
for American black bears in
other eastern states," Tim
Breault, director of the FWC's
Division of Habitat and Species
Conservation, said. "The prin-
cipal conclusion of this study is
that while road-related mortali-
ty impacts the status of bear
populations, the current level of
road mortality appears to be
sustainable, and does not pose
an immediate threat to the sta-
tus of the population segments
studied."
Breault said similar mortality
rates don't necessarily mean
they have similar impacts on
bear populations, however.
Breault said the study enabled
FWC scientists to use cutting-
edge technology to generate the
best population assessment to
date for bears in these areas.
"It will be useful in assessing
the magnitude of the threat to
populations posed by motor ve-
hicles," he said. "The study
shows that, on average, road
kills do not pose a threat to
Florida's bear populations,
based on current population es-
timates. However, if habitat de-
creases and new roads lead to
increases in mortality rates, we
would need to re-evaluate these
conclusions."
The Florida black bear is on
the state's list of imperiled
species as threatened. It is not
listed on the federal endangered
or threatened species lists.
"The Florida black bear, a
unique sub-species that occurs


primarily in Florida, once was
widely distributed throughout
Florida. Bears require large
home ranges and need ample
habitat to ensure a healthy pop-
ulation. Several factors, such as
urban development and an in-
crease in human population,
have reduced bear habitat. The
bears that once roamed across
the entire state have been frag-
mented into isolated sub-popu-
lations," Breault said.
In Florida, the last bear hunt
was conducted in 1993. The
season was closed in 1994, and
FWC staff is not recommending
resumption.
This study focused on road
kills and did not directly address
issues such as nuisance bears
and bear hunting, Breault said.
"There is a wide range of opin-


ions regarding bear conserva-
tion. To gain a better under-
standing of public attitudes,
opinions, and perceptions re-
garding bears and bear manage-
ment, the FWC will begin a sur-
vey in Florida later this year."

FAQs on line, go to

ports.htm. For more informa-
tion about the Florida Black
Bear and living in bear country,

The estimated populations for
each studied area are:
Apalachicola: 438 695 bears
Big Cypress: 516 -878 bears
Eglin: 63 -101 bears
Ocala: 729 -1,056 bears
Osceola: 201 -315 bears
St. Johns: 100 -179 bears

Chickenpox vaccine may

be a good idea for many
It used to be that getting chickenpox was just a childhood rite of passage. The
disease is quite common in childhood with most cases occurring in children
before the age of 15. While chickenpox is usually a mild illness that causes itchy
sores that often clear up on their own after a few days, it can trigger problems
like brain swelling, pneumonia and skin infections, on rare occasions. Each case
of chickenpox is unique, meaning it could be more severe for some and less so
for others. The good news is, once you get chickenpox, it's unlikely you'll catch
it again.
WHAT IS
CHICKENPOX?
Chickenpox causes
Very contagious sores
that resemble water
blisters that develop
anywhere on the body -
even in the mouth or a
eyes. It can easily be
spread from one person
to another through .
direct contact with a
blister or the liquid .
from sha blister.
Chickenpox can also be .
acquired if a person
comes in contact with
the saliva of an infected
individual. In addition, 2
it can be spread through
the air from someone w
who is coughing or ,
sneezing. That's why it
is important for those .
who have a case of the .
chickenpox to stay ...,
home from school, ~,
daycare or work. In Chickenpox can now be prevented by the varicella vaccine.
addition, parents of
children suffering from chickenpox will have to stay home to care for their sick
children. A relatively minor illness has the potential to impact the family greatly
if the disease stretches on for its typical four- to five-day duration.
Chickenpox is an itchy nuisance. However, scratching or picking at blisters can
lead to scarring or infection. Calamine lotion can help relieve the itch, but the
only way to make the blisters go away is to let the outbreak run its course.
ILLNESS PREVENTION
Doctors now have a weapon in their arsenal against chickenpox: the varicella
vaccine. The vaccine is named for the varicella-zoster virus that causes the
disease. More than 20 states have passed requirements that children entering
child care and school must have a history of chickenpox, serological (blood)
evidence of immunity or evidence of receiving chickenpox vaccine. Many other
states are in the process of enacting such requirements.
Children typically receive the vaccination between the ages of 12 to 18
months. Adults who work with children (such as teachers, day-care workers, or
those in health care), should also obtain the shot as a preventative measure if
they have not yet had chickenpox.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
The vaccine is about 90 percent effective against chickenpox outbreaks, says
the American Academy of Pediatrics. However, some people will get a very mild
case of chickenpox one or two weeks after they get the vaccine. They will most
likely have fewer than 50 blisters, which can be treated with calamine lotion. As
with any vaccine, there may be some redness, swelling or pain at the place
where the needle enters the arm or leg.
There are some people who should not get the varicella vaccine. These include
pregnant women who could pass on the disease to their unborn children, those
with a compromised immune system, or those receiving high doses of steroids
for another problem.
If you have any questions or concerns about the varicella vaccine, consult your
family physician. You can also learn more about it at www.cdc.org.

Dear Classified Guys,
While planning my wedding, I quickly
learned that the guest list wasn't
about whom I wanted to invite. It was
more about my mom shaking the old
family tree and seeing who fell out.
When she asked me to invite her
long-lost rich cousins, I expected the
mystery relatives would at least
bring a nice gift. However, when we
unwrapped the gifts, we found a
shocker. Their gift was a beautiful
crystal punch bowl, but when I
turned it over, I found a bright green
$5 price tag that was obviously from
a yard sale. We paid $125 per plate,
and she gave me a $5 punch bowl.
My husband said I should let
it go, but don't you guys -'
think spending $5 on a -...
wedding gift from a yard
sale is ridiculous?

Cash: Of course spending $5 on a
crystal punch bowl is ridiculous. Your
relatives could have at least haggled it
down to $3!
Carry: Although I can understand
your frustration with your new-found
relatives, it seems you had the wrong
expectations. Regardless of whom your
Mom shook out of the family tree, you
should have been delighted that they


Duane "Cash" Holze \
& Todd "Carry" Hoize N


Ioo08/07/05
@2005 The Classified Guys


attended your wedding. Anticipating an
expensive gift in return was an error on
your part.
Cash: Now I have to agree that leav-
ing the price sticker on the punch bowl
was a major oversight and one that might
be offensive.
Carry: It seems the problem was not
the fact that your relatives purchased the
gift at a yard sale, but that they actually
got caught. By your own admission, the
crystal bowl was a beautiful gift.
Cash: It's difficult to say whether eti-
quette would discourage giving a wed-
ding gift from a yard sale. There are
many who would say that if the bowl


was still new and in the original box, the
gift is perfectly-fine. That is, if the price
sticker is first removed.
Carry: Personally, I wouldn't know
what to use a crystal punch bowl for
unless it's to change the oil in my car.
Yet other people may find it to be the
perfect wedding gift.
Cash: As a newlywed, you may want
to start considering your husband's
advice and let it go. Send your relatives
a nice thank you card for attending the
wedding and bringing a gift.
Carry: Besides, if it's like many wed-
ding gifts, you'll try selling it at your
next yard sale.


Wrapped Up
How much did you spend on the last
wedding gift you bought? Although the
relation of the bride or groom does play a
role in many people's decision, the aver-
age attendee spends $85 on a wedding
present according to The Association of
Bridal Consultants. To top off the occa-
sion, the association claims that a wed-
ding couples average 100 gifts from the
ceremony. Aside from hours of unwrap-
ping, that makes for a lot of handwritten
thank you cards.

Gift Giver
When is it okay to regift? Some may
respond, "Never!", but according to a
survey commissioned by ebay, 64% of
people admit to regifting, or secretly giv-
ing away unwanted gifts to others. That
means most are not alone in the process.
To avoid any embarrassment, it's advis-
able to make sure the item is actually
new and not from a company that went
out of business. If the idea of regifting
makes you uncomfortable, you can save
all those items for your next yard sale.

Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Keep Giving
I find all sorts of items at yard
sales, sometimes brand new and
never used.
At the last sale, I came across a
beautiful sterling silver picture frame
and thought it would be perfect for
an upcoming wedding I had to
attend.
When I went to pay for it, the
woman explained that it has been
passed around many times.
"Someone regifted it to me at my
wedding," she said.
"That's amazing," I replied. "But
how did you know?"
She laughed as she replied, "They
forgot to change the names on the
gift tag."
