MAJOR JUDGE: Major Kenneth Lee, a deputy staff judge advocate
in the Marine Corps, was promoted to the rank of major during an op-
eration in the Philippines, where he and approximately 150 Sailors
and Marines provided assistance to a village in the Tawi Tawi province.
Major Lee is the son of Kenneth and Sophia Lee of Jennings.

Jasper Police Dept.



enhances its response



rate to child abductions


By Lieutenant Ron Flanders
ESG-1 Public Affairs
At sea aboard USS Tarawa in the Indian Ocean -
Most of us would love it if our son or daughter grew
up to be a lawyer, as the profession of law is one of the
most high-paying fields there is. And yet, cynics will
turn right around and decry
lawyers as money-grubbing M a/a
fiends, filing frivolous lawsuits
and billing clients hundreds of dol- differ
lars per hour. It might not have
been so funny for attorneys to see
the movie the Devil's Advocate, in m y pa'
which Satan (played by a devilish Marine JAG M
Al Pacino) is the head of a large Marine JAG M
law firm. Of course, as with all
stereotypes there are notable exceptions to the rule.
Meet Marine Corps Major Kenneth Lee, one lawyer
who gets paid less than many of his civilian counter-
parts.
"It's about service to my country," said Lee, who
graduated from St. Petersburg High in 1988, and
whose parents Kenneth and Sophia Lee live in Jen-
nings. "None of us in uniform does it for the money.
It's about a sense of duty; it is rewarding because it
makes a difference in-some way. That's the paycheck
that I'm interested in."
While his former classmates in law school practice
real estate law, probate or even criminal law, Maj. Lee
lives in another world. As the deputy staff judge ad-

When a child is reported miss-
ing, time is one of law enforce-
ment's greatest enemies. Every
hour a child is missing, decreases
the likelihood of a safe recovery.
There are many challenges facing
law enforcement personnel in a
missing child case. One is collect-
ing and disseminating the child's
descriptive information quickly to
other law enforcement agencies,
the media and the public. With
that goal in mind, LOCATER (Lost
Child Alert Technology Resource)
was created to provide the com-
puter hardware and software
needed to rapidly distribute infor-
mation on missing children.
In order to ensure a high level of
preparedness for child abduction
cases, the Jasper Police *Depart-
ment has implemented the LO-
CATER program. By using the
program, the police department
can quickly create their own miss-


ing-person posters that can be dis-
tributed to the community. Posters
can also be electronically transmit-
ted to other agencies, the media,
and the public via the Internet.
When a law-enforcement
agency receives a missing-child re-
port, they can obtain the child's
film or digital photograph from a
parent or legal guardian. After en-
tering the missing child's informa-
tion into the National Crime Infor-
mation Center (NCIC), the investi-
gating officer can generate a poster
through the LOCATER secure
web site. A poster can be created
in English and Spanish.
All LOCATER posters are avail-
able to other participating law-en-
forcement agencies in a secure
database, where they can search
for the most recent posters by
child's name, agency name, file

Volunteers and financial

contributions urgently needed as

Red Cross relief efforts continue


As Hurricane Katrina continues
its devastating march inland, the
American Red Cross has
launched the largest mobilization
for a single natural disaster in the
agency's 124 year history. Emer-
gency Response Vehicles from 48
states, and three mobile kitchens,
are converging on staging areas
across the Gulf Coast. Hundreds
of thousands of meals are ready to
be moved to where they are most
needed, and through their part-
nership with the Southern Bap-
tists, the Red Cross will be able to
prepare and deliver 500,000 meals
a day. Volunteers are staffing
shelters in Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, Florida, and Texas. De-
spite the chaotic circumstances,
the American Red Cross was im-
mediately on the scene providing
shelter, meals and first aid. The
Red Cross has also begun the


process of meeting other needs of
individuals and families affected
by this massive disaster.
While the Red Cross is able to
accept bulk, corporate in-kind do-
nations when they meet an estab-
lished programmatic need, the
Red Cross cannot accept individ-
ual in-kind donations or collec-
tions of in-kind items due to logis-
tical challenges and the number of
personnel needed to sort and dis-
tribute individual donations. The
Red Cross, in partnership with
other agencies, suggests that the
best use for those types of dona-
tions is to support other agencies
within the local community.

Chapter has staffed several shel-
ters in the outlying coastal coun-
ties served by the Chapter, and

Mosquito-borne disease alert


issued for Suwannee County


Human Case of
EEE Confirmed
Suwannee County Health De-
partment Administrator Nancy
McCullers, Ph.D., announced
that Florida Department of
Health (DOH) Secretary John 0.
Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.
M.P.H., has issued a medical
alert for Suwannee County after
a human case of Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) was con-
firmed in a resident.
It takes from four to ten days
after the bite of an infected mos-
quito for an individual to devel-
op symptoms of EEE. The symp-
toms begin with a sudden onset
of fever, general muscle pains,
and a headache of increasing
severity. Many individuals will
progress to more severe symp-
toms such as seizures and coma.
Approximately one-third of all
people with clinical encephalitis
caused by EEE will die from the
disease; of those who recover,
many will suffer permanent
brain damage requiring long-
term medical care.
Physicians should contact
their county health department


if they suspect an individual has
acquired a mosquito-borne ill-
ness. DOH laboratories provide
testing services for physicians
treating patients with clinical
signs of mosquito-borne illness-
es. DOH continues to advise the
public to remain diligent in their
personal mosquito protection ef-
forts.
Follow these tips for protec-
tion from mosquitoes: Avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosquitoes
are seeking blood. For many
species, this is during the dusk
and dawn hours. Wear clothing
that covers most of the skin.
When the potential exists for ex-
posure to mosquitoes, repellents
containing DEET (N,N-diethyl-

meta-toluamide, or N,N-diethyl-
3-methylbenzamide) are recom-
mended. Check around the
home to rid the area of standing
water, which is where mosqui-
toes breed.
Always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage
before using a repellent. Some
repellents are not suitable for
children. Products with concen-
trations of up to 30 percent
DEET are generally recommend-
ed. Other effective mosquito re-
pellents, as reported by the CDC
in April 2005, contain Picaridin
or oil of lemon eucalyptus.

eth Lee enjoys the job
vocate for the forward-deployed 13th Marine Expedi-
tionary Unit (MEU), he has many responsibilities,
which typically fall outside of traditional civilian law.
First, Maj. Lee provides legal assistance to more
than 2,000 Marines, helping them in cases of divorce,
child custody issues, and a variety of things that can
trouble a deployed Marine. Sec-
ingO a ond, he advises the unit comman-
der on handling cases involving
:.nce is Marines and Sailors accused of vi-
olating the Uniform Code of Mili-
1 ,, y tary Justice. In some cases, Maj.

|or Kenneth Lee Finally, and perhaps most im-
portantly in today's wartime envi-
ronment, Maj. Lee is responsible for advising the
Marines on the ground on issues pertaining the rules
of engagement (ROE). In other words, Lee advises the
troops on when they can legally fire on the enemy. In
past wars, this wasn't much of an issue, but today
there is a lot of gray area, and opening fire at the
wrong time can be disastrous.
"Things aren't black-and-white any more. In previ-
ous wars, there has been a defined enemy who wore a
uniform, and when they surrendered, they put their
hands up, and it was done," Maj. Lee explains. "To-
day, we're dealing with terrorists who don't wear uni-

Postal Service makes change

of address process easier


Moving will never be easy
but the Postal Service has
now made it more conve-
nient by offering the 45 mil-
lion Americans who move
annually three methods of
forwarding their mail. Be-
sides submitting a hardcopy
form at the Post Office, or
submitting a change through
the website, usps.com, con-
sumers now have the added
convenience of changing
their address by telephone.
To file a change of address
by telephone, consumers can

Executive
Committee
meeting

ecutive Committee
meeting will be held
on Tuesday, Sept. 13,
at the Jasper Library at
7 p.m.


simply dial 1-800-275-8777
and select the change-of-ad-
dress option. Part of the
process uses interactive voice
response (IVR) and only
takes minutes. There is al-
ways the option to speak
with a customer service
agent regarding questions or
concerns.
Like Internet change of ad-
dress, customers will need to
have a valid credit card for
identity verification 'and se-
curity. A nominal fee is
charged.
The Postal Service is care-
ful to take steps to ensure the
change of address is autho-
rized, and to protect individ-
uals' privacy and security.
Once the application is re-
ceived by the Postal Service,
the customer will be notified
through the standard
change-of-address confirma-
tion process.
First, a move validation let-
ter will be sent to the old ad-
dress indicating the request
to forward mail. Then, a con-


firmation notification letter
will be sent to the new ad-
dress. In both cases, if the ad-
dress change is unauthorized
or incorrect, the consumer is
advised to call immediately.
The main benefit for con-
sumers is consistent, more ef-
ficient and speedier delivery.
Like usps.com, Telephone
Change of Address helps re-
duce the number of illegible
and incomplete change of
address forms that are sub-
mitted through the hard
copy option.
More than six million
Americans have changed
their address online at
www.usps.com. In a recent
survey, over 80 percent of re-
spondents said they would
definitely use the online
change of address service for
.their next move.
This is another example of
how the Postal Service is
making it quicker, easier and
more convenient than ever to
use postal products and ser-
vices.


The Jasper Police Department

now has a website for the public


The Jasper Police Depart-
ment now has a website,
w w w I a w -
enforcement.org/jasperpd
, with information on the
- month's arrests in the
city, contact information,


crime tips, safety alerts, and
new program information.
This tool is a great public
relations tool to keeping the
public informed about differ-
ent situations within the com-
munity.


Information, services


available with three


digit phone codes


Virtually every tele-
phone user knows that di-
aling the digits 800 to ini-
tiate a call insures a toll-
free phone call. Equally
recognizable are
the digits 911,
which when di- -
aled, give con-
sumers a direct
line to an emergency
services operator.
Other three-digit codes
are used in many commu-
nities in Florida to pro-
vide a range of services.
Community informa-
tion and referral services
can be accessed by dialing.
211 in some communities
in Florida. Potential users
can check
http:/ / flairs.org/flori-
da211networkplan.htm
for a listing of active 211
providers. In Hamilton
County, the United Way
provides free information
and referrals to health, so-
cial and human services.
The 311 code is reserved
for non-emergency police
and other governmental
services. In communities
where this code is in use,
it provides residents with
a simple way of gaining
access to local law en-
forcement in circum-
stances that lack urgency
or to local government
services deemed appro-


private by city or county
officials. In extreme cir-
cumstances, such as hurri-
canes, the 311 code may be
used when local 911 emer-
gency numbers are
overloaded. This
code is not avail-
able in Hamil-
ton County.
Most con-
4 1 lsumers
recog-
nize the
511411


code as 1 1
provid-

sistance. At
one time, 81
calls to 411 were
free. However,
customers should check
to determine what their
calling plan charges for ,
this service.
The Florida Department
of Transportation imple-
ments and administers
the 511 service in the
state, which, like the 211
code, is not in use
statewide. In parts of
Florida where the code is
in use mostly major mar-
kets callers can receive
travel information. This
code is not available in


Hamilton County.
The 611 code is as-
signed to local phone
companies to provide
customers access to tele-
phone repair services.
The 711 code is used to
gain access to the Florida
Tele-communications Re-
lay Service. This system,
created by the Legislature
in 1991, provides access
to the telecommunica-
tions network for individ-
uals with speech, hearing
or dual sensory disabili-
ties.
The 811 code currently
provides access to the
business offices of the
local service company,
but this may change in
the next few years.
SThrough the
Pipeline Safety Im-
provement
Act of 2002,
C I Congress
mandated
the establishment .of a
three digit nationwide
toll-free number for states
to use for a one call noti-
fication system. An advi-
sory group to the Federal
Communications Com-
mission has recommend-
ed the use of 811.
Probably the most rec-
ognized of the three-digit
codes, 911 is for emer-
gence services only.

number, date, and other key
factors. The program is used
in more than 4,500 law-en-
forcement agencies across
the United States.
Although the program is
designed for missing child
posters, the technology may
also be used for a number of
other purposes, such as
posters for missing adults,
wanted persons, and crime
alerts. If an agency partici-
pates in a voluntary partner-
ship with the media to send
out emergency alerts when a
child is abducted, such as the
AMBER Plan, LOCATER
has a template for that as
well.
"Florida has had a high


number of missing kid cas-
es," said Ptl. Martin Lee.
"The Jasper Police Depart-
ment is taking steps to pre-
pare for a missing child case
by using all the resources
available to ensure that if, in
the rare case, a child from
Jasper or Hamilton County
should go missing, the
agency will be able to do all
it can to ensure a safe recov-
ery."
Working in cooperation
with the US Department of
Justice's Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency Pre-
vention, the National Center
for Missing and Exploited
Children is the national re-
source center and clearing-
house for missing and ex-
ploited child cases.

forms that employ criminal
tactics when fighting. Keep-
ing our Marines and Sailors
educated on what is accept-
able conduct on the battle-
field is crucial, so they don't
commit war crimes, and
more importantly, we pro-
tect the innocent."
In this last role as a "com-
bat JAG," Maj. Lee accompa-
nies the Marines on the
ground, often carrying a
9mm pistol along with his le-
gal briefs. Recently, during
an operation to the Philip-
pines, Colonel James Lavine,
Commanding Officer of the
13th MEU, promoted Lee to
the rank of major, a huge
milestone for any Marine.
The ceremony occurred
while Maj. Lee and approxi-
mately 150 Sailors and


Marines provided humani-
tarian assistance to the im-
poverished village of Batu-
Batu in Tawi Tawi province.
"It meant a lot, getting pro-
moted ashore, conducting an
actual operation, it added
special significance to it," the
major said. "It brings home
all the reasons why you
joined."
There were many reasons
Maj. Lee chose to forsake a
more lucrative career in law
for the Marine Corps. The
primary reason was that his
father, Kenneth Sr., was a
Marine Sergeant.
"He never pushed me into
it, but the Marines were
what he was all about," the
major said. "Marines are dif-
ferent than any other service.
Being a Marine means doing
the right thing, and standing
up for the little guy."


Maj. Lee added that he en-
joys the responsibility, the
'travel, and helping people
like he and his fellow
Marines and Sailors did in
the Philippines. But life
aboard a ship (he lives on-
board the amphibious as-
sault ship USS Tarawa) can
be difficult. Being a Marine
essentially means deploying
at least every other year
halfway across the world,
sometimes going into harm's
way. Unlike most attorneys,
Maj. Lee shares a small room
with three other officers,
which would make a college
dorm seem spacious. He eats
every meal either in a cafete-
ria, or out of a plastic pouch.
"I wish I could have
some of mom's home
cooking, Maj. Lee chuck-
les. "As soon as my ship
pulls in; I'm heading back


to Florida that week."
For now, though, Maj.
Lee and his fellow Marines
are in the middle of the In-
dian Ocean, steaming west
toward possible action in
the Middle East. As for
how long he will remain a
Marine lawyer, Maj. Lee
said he's keeping his op-
tions open, but is very hap-
py being a Marine Corps
Judge Advocate General.
"I have the attitude that
if I really am enjoying what
I'm doing, I want to stick
with it," he said. "To me,
the main concern is job sat-
isfaction. Right now, I feel
like I'm doing something
that's worthwhile in the
world. It feels good to do
what I'm doing, to have at
least a small part in mak-
ing the world a better
place."

posed skin, or onto clothing,
but not under clothing. In
protecting children, read la-
bel instructions to be sure
the repellent is age-appro-
priate. According to the
CDC, mosquito repellents
containing oil of lemon eu-
calyptus should not be used
on children under the age of
three years. DEET is not rec-
ommended on children
younger than two months
old. Infants should be kept
indoors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are pre-
sent.
Avoid applying repellents
to the hands of children.
Adults should apply repel-
lent first to their own hands
and then transfer it to the
child's skin and clothing. If
additional protection is nec-
essary, apply a permethrin
repellent directly to clothing.
Again, always follow the
manufacturer's directions.

bia County Emergency Man-
agement, Columbia County
Senior Citizens, representa-
tives of the faith community
and representatives of ser-
vice organizations. Through

assist the 316 households in

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor,
Here we go again! The
City of Jasper is going to
have an election on Sept. 6,
to amend the city charter.
Of particular interest is
ARTICLE III, Section 302
paragraph (d), which caps
the salary at $100 per month.
The problem being that the
council may revisit this sec-
tion and by majority vote,
raise their salary at any time.
I believe the city council has
already demonstrated total
disregard to the city charter
concerning salaries and I for
one do not trust them.
Second item: ARTICLE
IV, Section 401, which


would allow the city manag-
er to live outside of the city.
The manager should live
within the city and be equal-
ly affected by any utility or
tax rate changes.
Ladies and gentleman, I
want to encourage you to
get out in mass and vote
"NO" to the new city char-


ter. It transfers more power
from the citizen into the
hands of the city council. I
also would suggest that if
we want to change the Char-
ter, appoint a citizens com-
mittee to assist in its prepa-
ration.

At this writing, Hurri-
cane Katrina is headed for
the "Big Easy." New Or-
leans will forever be al-
tered after this storm
"hits". How my heart
goes out to beautiful New
Orleans. My heart goes
out to those living in New
Orleans and other areas
along the Louisiana
Coast. Let's keep all of
these individuals in our
prayers, and, truly, we
should all work to be pre-
pared for a hurricane.
I always enjoy attend-
ing services at the White
Springs United Methodist
Church and Sunday was
no exception. Beverly
Davis asked me to come
and sing for the congrega-
tion, and I was truly
blessed, as I enjoyed the
song service and the in-


spring sermon delivered
by Rev. Bill Peeler. My
membership is at First
Baptist of White Springs,
but, about once a month, I
"moonlight" at the.
Methodist Church, and I
truly enjoy my fellowship
there.
Speaking of churches in
our region, it is the time of
year we begin to think
about "Homecoming Ser-
vices." A time for remem-
bering, reminiscing, en-
joying some of the finest
food ever prepared by hu-
man hands, and.just re-
joicing as we meet and
greet those we hold dear
to our hearts.
Historic Swift Creek
United Methodist Church
will hold its annual home-
coming services on Sun-
day, Sept. 25, at 10:45 a.m.


It was founded around
1827 and is the second
oldest Protestant Church
in the State of Florida.
Rev. Bill Peeler will bring
the homecoming message.
Dinner on the grounds
will be served. Tommy
and Mildred Pound and
Butch and Claire Smith al-
ways work very hard to
make this event a success.
We appreciate them.
First Baptist Church of
White Springs, will cele-
brate the 107th Home-
coming of the Church on
Sunday, Oct. 9. Rev. Av-
ery Kelly, will bring the
morning message. A cov-
ered dish luncheon will be
served.
White Springs United
Methodist Church will
celebrate Homecoming
Services on Sunday, Nov.
13, at 10:45 a.m. A cov-
ered dish luncheon will be
served.
The Bullard families of
White Springs hosted a re-
ception for Congressman
Jim Davis of Tampa, who
is a Democratic candidate
for Governor, at the his-
toric Telford Hotel on
Wednesday, Aug. 31, from
6 p.m. till 8 p.m. The event


was well coordinated and
well attended. Many
thanks to Nick and Cathy
Lyras of the Telford Hotel
in White Springs, for al-
ways providing such gra-
cious service. We appreci-
ate them so very much.
Cliff and Mary Ellen
Adams of Jasper, are
proud new grandparents,
as their son and daughter-
in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Lee
Adams of Jasper, Ga.,
were blessed with a new
son on Wednesday, Aug.
24. The young man
weighted 8 lbs. and was 20
inches in length. He is
named Clifford Leroy
Adams III and will be
called "Trippe". Our con-
gratulations to everyone.
The Stephen Foster Citi-

tion will meet on Monday,

In an article for Christian
Century, Dr. Walter
Brueggemann wrote, "The
Bible starts out with a litur-
gy of abundance. Genesis 1
is a song of praise for God's
generosity. It tells how well
the world is ordered. It
keeps saying, "It is good, it
is good, it is good, it is very
good." It declares that God
blesses (that is, endows
with vitality) the plants and
the animals and the fish and
the birds and humankind.
And it pictures the creator
as saying, "Be fruitful and


more calling, more savings.

multiply." In an orgy of
fruitfulness, everything in
its kind is to multiply the
overflowing goodness that
pours from God's creator
spirit. And as you know,
the creation ends in Sab-
bath.
Many other Old Testa-
ment scriptures celebrate
the abundance of God.
Psalm 104 pictures God as
the giver of abundance.
Psalm 150 is "an exuberant
expression of amazement at
God's goodness." Genesis 1
affirms generosity and de-
nies scarcity. Psalm 104 cel-
ebrates the goodness of cre-
ation and rejects anxiety.
Psalm 150 calls us to aban-
don ourselves to God and to
let go of our need to have
anything under our own
control.
As the Book of Genesis
continues, Pharaoh intro-
duces the principle of the
myth of scarcity to the
world. For the first time in
the Bible a world leader
says, "There's not enough."
From then on, Pharaoh in-
tends to get and control
everything.
The second book of the
Bible, Exodus, is a saga of
struggle between the abun-
dance of God and the myth
of scarcity, a struggle with
which, we still wrestle to-
day.
As slaves, the Hebrew
people never received
bread as a gift. In Egypt
bread was a tool of oppres-
sion, promoting the myth of
scarcity, but after escaping
from Pharaoh under the
leadership of a man named
Moses, God showed the He-
brew people his generosity.
After the miracle of the
Exodus, the people began to
grumble, buying into the
myth of scarcity, when they
were miraculously saved at
the Red Sea. Later the peo-
ple complained about the
bitter taste of the water, but
God, in his abundant good-
ness, sweetened the water.
Then they complained
about being hungry, and
God provided; then they
were moaning about being
thirsty again, and God met
their need again. The peo-
ple seemed to have memory
lapses, because it wasn't
long before they were com-
plaining about being hun-
gry again, so God rained
bread from heaven. Here
was a free and abundant
gift, not as a tool of oppres-
sion as it had been in Egypt,

but as a reminder of God's
abundant provision to those
who placed their trust in
him. But of course some still
believed the myth of scarci-
ty and hoarded more than
they needed, and discov-
ered that it rotted before
they could use it.
The struggle continues:
the reality of God's abun-
dance versus the myth of
scarcity. Brueggemann
says, "Whether we are lib-
eral or conservative Chris-
tians, we must confess that
the central problem of our
lives is that we are torn
apart by the conflict be-
tween our attraction to the
good news of God's abun-
dance and the power of our
belief in scarcity."
Can the news of God's
abundance be trusted in the
face of the story of scarcity?
The story of scarcity ends in
death and despair. Joshua
made the right choice. "As
for me and my house, we
will serve the Lord." But
serving God and believing
in God's abundance is not
always the easy path.
Joshua warned his people
that following the Lord
would bring them trouble,
and they would have to get
rid of their foreign gods,
those nasty little gods of
scarcity.
The story finally reaches
into the New Testament,
and the battle continues:
scarcity or abundance,
scarcity or abundance,
scarcity or abundance. Read
Mark 6:30-44, the feeding of
the 5,000. This is a story of
God's abundance. It works
this way: Take, bless, break,
and give. Jesus took the
loaves and fish, asked God
to bless them, broke them,
and gave them. The scene is
filled with God's abun-
dance. It gives us a hint of
how blessed we would be if
we could only abandon that
myth of scarcity and really,
truly believe in the abun-
dance of God which is the
authentic truth and the in-
disputable good news of
the gospel. Jesus, in his
feeding of 5,000 is guaran-
teeing the truth of Genesis
1, Psalm 104, and Psalm
150, and all the other places
in the inspired Word of God
that scream out the abun-


dance of God!
To submit to the myth of
scarcity is to admit defeat,
to buy into the falsehood
that we will never have
enough. But practice abun-
dantly over and over again,
until it becomes our way of
life, and it will become the
way that leads to eternal
life! Put away the gods of
scarcity, and open your life
to the God of abundance.
Worship this week in the
church of your choice.

Do you believe school
stops in the summer? Not
so, if you ask our second
graders. At the end of first
grade, all future second
graders carry home an in-
formative and suggestive
packet of ideas to keep them
and parents knowledgeable
of expectations for second
grade. They are encouraged
to count money, review ad-
dition / subtraction facts,
keep a summer journal, and
most importantly, read a to-
tal of 30 books.
This is an endeavor well


worth the effort, because
those completing the sum-
mer assignments receive a
special recognition treat.
To the delight of their
teachers, 12 students were
rewarded with treat bags
full of unique items just for
second graders.
Congratulations second
grade students, teachers,
and parents for realizing
the importance of reading.
Second grade teachers are
Mrs. Erin Driggers, Mrs.
Barbara Tyre, and Mrs.
Pam Hendrick.


Parents, our PTO meet-
ing/open house has been
changed to Monday, Sept.
12, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Please make plans to at-
tend. Our PTO is a vital
part of our school pro-
gram.
Our NHE family bids a
fond farewell to technolo-
gy coordinator, Mrs. Don-
na Dillard, as she leaves us
to join the HCHS Mathe-
matics Department. Mrs.
Dillard is an excellent
teacher, and an even better
person. Good luck, Mrs.
Dillard, in all your future
endeavors.
Our Accelerated Reader
program has a space theme
this year. The halls and
classrooms are decorated
with spacecraft, astro-
nauts, planets, and other
space items. Reading is a
top priority here at NHE
where "we are changing
lives through quality edu-
cation."


The 2005-2006 school year
is off to a great start at CHE!
Recently, fall portraits were
taken. The proofs should be
coming home with students
within a month. CHE is
proud to welcome new staff
member, Teresa Black. Ms.
Black will be assisting CHE
as a paraprofessional. Make
plans now to attend "Open
House" on Thursday, Sept.
8, at 6 p.m. This will give
parents and family mem-
bers an opportunity to meet
staff members and visit with
your child's teacher.
First grade is having a ball
reading! They have been de-
coding new words using the
short vowel sounds and can
recognize 30 new sight
words. Reading is a favorite
pastime for this first grade
and has become very excit-
ing as they are beginning to
read independently.
Mrs. Mathis spoke ofher
class, "I have been very
proud of the progress in my
classroom. They have truly


shown so much growth in
just these first few weeks. I
think we are on the verge of
a great class of readers!"
First grade has also been
having a blast learning
about snakes and weather
in Science, transportation in
Social Studies, and have
been working with the hun-
dreds chart as well as addi-
tion in Math. These are real-
ly a great group of kids!
Second grade classes are
busy getting back into the
swing at school. We have
read the story of "Poppleton
and the Grapefruit" and we
agree with Poppleton that
your lips do turn" inside
out" when you eat grape-
fruit. In math we have been
reviewing place value, skip-
counting, and even and odd
numbers.
Mrs. Cail's class learned
the Science terms transpar-
ent, translucent, opaque,
and that light travels in a
straight line. We were able
to prove that by using a mir-


ror we could change the di-
rection of the light and even
played flashlight tag. Par-
ents please remember to
read with your child each
night.
Fourth grade students
read the story "Yingtao's
New Friend." The skill les-
son for this week was com-
pare and contrast. Fourth
graders have enjoyed work-
ing with Venn Diagrams, a
graphic organizer useful in
answering compare and
contrast questions. Students
have also enjoyed working
on place value and round-
ing.
Students in Mr. Law's
class have been working on
a narrative story entitled"
The Class Trip." Mrs. Bick-
ford's class is working hard
on expository writing,
learning how to brainstorm
and organize ideas into an
essay. Teachers continue to
encourage students to read
for at least 30 minutes each
night.
Mrs. Norris's fifth grade
class is learning the parts to
an animal and plant cell.
They made drawings of a
cell and labeled the parts.
Students are continuing to
work hard on Math and
Reading Strategies.

Trojans perfect



in 33-14 rout of



Jefferson County


f .. .-..
-. . ,, .

The young guys performed well also. Justin McCoy hands off to Chris Ravenel who had
some nice runs of his own. Casey, #9 is blocking here, but would have the longest run of
the night for 47 yards to end the game.


Trojans travel to Fort White


The Hamilton County
Trojans survived their first
test of the season with high
marks. Tomorrow night
the task gets just a little
more difficult against a
very talented Indians team.
Fort White lost their
quarterback/wide receiver
connection from last year,
but return 12 seniors that
produce one of the most
balanced and athletic
teams in quite awhile for


the Indians.
In the season opener, Fort
White muscled out a 10-6
win over West Nassau to
open the season on the
right foot. They have al-
ready matched their team
total of wins from last year
and certainly plan on mak-
ing this a great year just as
the Trojans do.
The Indians bring an ef-
fective passing game and
are not afraid of airing the


ball out with consistency.
They do struggle in the
short yardage situations
which is usually a result of
a smaller line. The Trojans
will have the advantage of
the line, but will need to be
sharp in open field situa-
tions against one of the
most athletic teams the Tro-
jans will face this year from
many positions.
Kickoff is slated for 7:30
p.m. on Friday night.


The Hamilton County
varsity football team
played perfect football in
the first half of the season
opener at the home field
building a 33-0 lead and
coasted to a 33-14 win over
rival Jefferson County.
The Trojans wasted little
time putting the game
away. Kirkland Mitchell
took the opening kickoff
and raced to his own 35 af-
ter a good return. The ball
would be advanced to
midfield after a nine yard
first down run by Chance
Windham. Windham
would take advantage of
great blocking by the of-
fensive line for another
eleven yards on the next
carry. Lathaniel Sowell
would get his second carry
of the game and break
loose for 21 yards, and fol-
lowing a face mask penal-
ty, gave the Trojans a first
down at the Tigers 14.
Desmond Williams would
make a tough run inside
for eight yards with Sowell
getting first down yardage
at the three. Junior quar-


terback Eddie Battles
would get the ball inside
the one with Sowell get-
ting the call on the next
play for a Trojans touch-
down at the 8:25 mark of
the first quarter.
The Tigers also met
Windham on the defensive
side of the ball for the first
two plays which resulted
in minus three yards. A
big play by the Tigers
brought up a fourth and
short, but another huge
tackle by Windham left the
Tigers inches short.
The Trojans would only
need seven plays on the
next drive starting at mid-
field with Battles finding
Sowell for a 34 yard touch-
down strike with 3:14 left
in Che first quarter and a
12-0 Trojans lead.
The defense came up
huge once again on the
Tigers next possession,
scoring a defensive touch-
down after a host of Tro-
jans stripped the ball caus-

the endzone where Battles
pounced on the ball for the


TD. Place kicker Raphael
Balleza split the uprights
and the Trojans were up
19-0 in the first quarter.
Only a fine open field'
tackle by the special teams
prevented the Tigers
speedster Lucius Wade
from scoring on another
kickoff return. The pos-
session would be short-
lived however after Battles
found his way into the
Tigers backfield for a loss,
and combined with Wind-
ham to shut the drive
down and force a punt.
Unfortunately for the
Tigers, Sowell fielded the
punt and sprinted to the
Tigers 14 yard line. Wind-
ham and Sowell advanced
the ball to the four before
Battles rolled to his right
and found paydirt for the
Trojans fourth touchdown
and Battles second of the
game. Balleza was true
once again and the lead
was 26-0 with 8:49 to go in

COMMENTARY

Memo from a Trojan fan

Trojans making work fun
By-Terry Hedgespeth, -Sports Reporter-- --. .....


Coach Green was very happy
with the support the Trojans re-
ceived this past week against Jef-
ferson County. This particular
sports writer was kind of stunned
-however that only half the stadi-
um was filled. This is a very good
football team. The people that did
.attend the home opener were
very vocal and well supportive of
the effort of. the Trojans. This
team, including the coaches, the
cheerleaders, the boosters and


'each of the athletes have worked -
very hard in preparation for the
2005 season to bring pride back to
the football program. This team is
outstanding and is filled with
personalities that make this team-
fun to be a part of. Trojans fans,
be a part of it and fill the stadium.
You will not be disappointed and
the team will respond in kind.
The Fort White Indians are guar-
anteed to have a house full. The
Trojan fans are needed.


The junior ROTC cadets did a great job of presenting the colors and the pledge of alle-
giance while youngster Trey Norris received a well deserved standing ovation for his de-
livery of the National Anthem.


The cheerleaders are ready to welcome the team into the 2005 season and looked great
all night.


.-. .. ","* .,


Jail Break! The defensive line just simply overpowered the Tigers. Mark Cooks leads the
way here and has company for the poor quarterback who was on the run all night.


Battles hands off to Williams. Williams is an intelligent ball player that takes advantage of
blocks lfe this one by Henry. Williams got key first down yardage on tough runs all night long.


Windham is on the chase. Unfortunately for the Tigers, he would find his target on this
night more often than not.

Running off some at the
computer for one year
k........... After waiting
seven long months, col-
lege football is finally
back. The Florida Gators
have their new coach in
Urban Meyer and they are
ready to win their first
SEC Championship since
the ole' ball coach left.
Considering the Gators
were 15-10 over the last
two seasons, they are
looking for some kind of
Urban Renewal. Speaking
of Spurrier, he will he be
running the fun-n-gun of-
fense of the South Caroli-
na Gamecocks. As for Bob-
by Bowden, he will be en-
tering his, 30th season as
Seminole head coach
........ If you are wonder-
ing how long it has been
since Florida State beat
Miami, it last happened on
Oct. 9, 1999, win FSU beat
Miami 31-21 in Tallahas-
see. If you are wondering
how many days it has
been, Seminole fans, try an
amazing 2,154 days. Will
this losing streak ever
come to an end to the Hur-
ricanes? ........ Sit back, re-
lax, .and get ready for an-
other exciting college foot-
ball season. By the way,
Give thanks unto to the
Lord; for he is good.
This Week's Games
Central Florida at South
Carolina
The ole' ball coach is
now roaming the sidelines
in Carolina without an ex-
perienced quarterback.
That's the only piece of the
puzzle that Spurrier has to
put together. It could take
a few years and a few hun-
dred visor' throws!
SOUTH CAROLINA 24 ...
CENTRAL FLORIDA 21
Wyoming at Florida
The Mighty Gators open
their season against the
Cowboys from Wyoming.
After all the hype of new
head coach Urban Meyer,
it is finally time to do what
he was hired to do ....... to
coach a college football
game. Trust me, the hon-
eymoon is officially over.
Look for the Gators to
struggle but win going
away! GATORS 35 ........

GAME OF THE WEEK
No. 9 Miami at No. 14
Florida State
Sept. 5
Time and Location: 8
p.m., Doak Campbell Sta-
dium, Tallahassee, Flori-
da.
Television: ABC
Line: Miami by 3
Why Miami will win:
The Canes own Bowden
and FSU, winning the last
six games, including last
year's 16-10 game in (OT)
in the Orange Bowl.
Why FSU will win: Af-
ter losing to the Canes for
six consecutive times, the
Noles are finally ready to
break that Hurricane jinx.
Look for RB Leon Wash-
ington and Lorenzo Book-
er to lead a strong Semi-
nole running game. Is the
Nole defense as good as
advertised?
Extra Points: FSU com-
piled a 70-2 record over
their first nine seasons
ACC seasons; but have
gone 26-6 in conference
games since. Miami leads
the all-time series against
FSU with 29 wins and 20
losses. Since 1983, Miami
is 15-8 against FSU, in-
cluding an 8-0 record in
games decided by three
points or less. FSU enters
this season ranked #14 in
the Associated Press Poll,
which is their lowest pre-
season ranking since 1985
Keys to the game: As in
any big game, the: team
that makes the big plays is
going to win. Turnovers
are crucial, and the team
that can hold on to the ball
could find itself on top at
the end of the game. The
Noles must shut down RB
Frank Gore and put a ton
of pressure on QB Kyle
Wright if they want to
have any chance of win-
.ning. As for Miami, they
need to score early to get
the crowd out of the game
and run the football by
pounding running back
Tyrone Moss. Look for
QB Kyle Wright to be real
conservative and only
throw short routes to the
UM receivers. Don't be
surprised if the game
comes down to a field
goal again, which is cer-
tainly not what Bobby
Bowden and Seminole na-
tion wants to happen. Get
ready for another chapter
in one of the best rivalries
in college football!
EndZone Prediction:
Miami 17 ......... FSU 16.

Trojans


Continued From Page 1 !5

kickoff return for the
Tigers after Derrick Wind-
ham made sure that he
was there to force 'the
Tigers to start deep in
their own territory.
t* he possession would
get no better for the Tigers
who would finish the first
half with a minus six total
yards. Battles would break
the first pass up, and
Pablo Garcia found the
Tigers backfield to force a
fumble back at the 15. The
Tigers would recover, but
would meet Garcia and
Mark Cooks for a five
yard loss.
The Trojans would start
in good field position at
the Tigers 34. Mitchell
showed his tough running
ability picking up a hard
earned ten yards before
Chance would break sev-
eral tackles on. a six yard
run. Williams would gain
the first down yardage to
the 12. The Tigers held the
Trojans out of the endzone
for the next three plays,


but on fourth down, Bat-
tles connected Ior his firl'1
TD pass with a strike to
Cameron Cohen. After the
Balleza PAT, the Trojans
led 33-0.
The defensive line of the
Trojans led by Doc
Ilendry and Whoe Rober-
son took control forcing a
punt. A high snap was
gathered by the Tigers
punter who raced down
the sideline for first down
yardage with Jermaine
Walker making a great
open field tackle to pre-
vent a score. Cooks and
Henry shut the door up
front on the Tigers to end
the half.
The Trojans would cost
in the second half allow-
ing many of the young-
sters in the game.
Chance, Hendry and
Roberson made sure the
door was still closed on
the Tigers to begin the sec-
ond half. The Tigers did
work the ball to a fourth
and inches, but a huge
play by Garcia that result-
ed in a ten yard loss gave


the Trojans the ball.
One Trojan that really
made an impact on both
sides of the ball in the sec-
ond half was Mike Casey.
The Tigers were threaten-
ing at the Trojans 20 yard
line and attempted a pass
inside the five, but Casey
made a great defensive
plav to give the Trojans
the ball back on downs.
Casey also had a big play
at the end of the ballgame
reaching the corner and
streaked down the right
sideline for the longest
run of the game for the
Trojans, a 46 yarder to the
Tigers 18 as the game
ended.
Offensively, what a job
by the junior lineman
George Moreno. Accord-
ing to Coach Green,
Moreno had a 82% effi-
ciency rating and opened
up huge holes which
Williams, Mitchell and
Windham took advantage
of all night. Morena earns
the lineman of the week
for his efforts.
The offensive player of


the week went to Battles.
He completed 2-4 passes,
for fifty yards and a touch-
down. He also scored a de-
fensive and rushing touch-
down.
Defensively, Windham
and Garcia shared the hon-
ors for the week with dom-
inating games. Windham
had 10 tackles with four of


those for losses, along with
a key fourth down stop.
Garcia forced a couple of
fumbles, had two tackles
for losses of 15 yards, and
a key fourth down stop.
Considering that Garcia
was just moved to the tigh-
tend spot on Thursday,
Coach Green had nothing
for praise for Garcia on his


performance on offense
also.
Coach Green was
pleased with the intensity
in the first half. He'
praised his younger play-
ers for their time on the
field and noticed that the
leadership on the team re-
ally enjoyed and support-
ed the young cast.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


When sitting down this
Monday morning to bring
this column together, I am
again reminded of how
fortunate we are to live in
Hamilton County. Don't
the inconveniences we
have endured in the past,
regarding the weather,
seem insignificant to what
others are trying to deal
with at this time. We do
not yet know, and may
never know, the sufferings
caused by Katrina, but our
hearts go out to them, and
we pray that they will be
able to come through this
trying time, able to pick up
with their lives and deal
with their difficulties.
As I opened my email
this morning, I received a

gave the charge to the can-
didate. Church members
from Joshua's church,
Pleasant Valley Baptist,
Ponce de Leon, Fla., at-
tended, as well as friends
from local churches.
Joshua attends Baptist Col-
lege of Florida in
Graceville. Relatives at-
tending the service were
grandparents, Mr. and
Mrs. Harlan Burnam, aunt
Cheryl McCall, and
cousins, Mindy and Corrin
Pulliam, Erin Driggers and
Patrick and Sally Murphy.
News is that new resi-
dents have moved into the
Clyde (Kayo) and Inez
McGhin home on 10th
street, we are sure we will
be learning more about
them soon, and that they
will be welcomed in
Jasper.
Many of you probably
have access to Southern
Living magazine when at
the beauty shop a few days
ago, we learned that Mrs.
Margaret Tuten's great-
granddaughter is pictured
on page 19 of the August
2005 magazine. It is al-
ways exciting to see some-
one we can identify with
on a national magazine or
paper. Ashley Ankarlo has
been employed at the Gay-
lor Texan near the Dallas-
Fort Worth airport. She is
the granddaughter of Mrs.
Tuten's daughter, Diann,
and Mrs. Tuten attended
Ashley's wedding in May
of this year. Ashley and
her husband, Rick, are
now living in Hawaii,
where Rick is stationed
with the Marines. When
she went for the wedding,
Mrs. Tuten stayed at the
Convention Center and
visited in this area, said it
is fascinating.
Hope to hear from you
soon, have a good week.

The South Hamilton
VPK/Pre-Kindergarten
Class is experiencing a great
year this year! We are all
four years old. We each
have a lot to offer. This
week we are exploring
"Our Five Senses."
We also went out explor-
ing our school and visited
Nurse Toni in her office,
Mrs. Hunter and Mrs. Lee
in their offices, and Mrs.
Brown in the Cafeteria. Mr.
Bullard was out of his office,
but he provided us with a
sweet treat. Way to go PK!
We have been working
very hard at South Hamil-
ton, and it is hard to believe
we have reached the end of
our third week of school.
We are pleased to welcome
Mrs. Anita Selph, our new
kindergarten teacher at
South Hamilton. Mrs. Selph
began teaching kinder-
garten on Monday, Aug. 29.
Her kindergarten class is lo-
cated in the main building
in Room 30 the old music
room.
We wish Mrs. Selph all
the best with our students.
Parents, we encourage you
to schedule an appointment
to meet with Mrs. Selph
and to talk to her about
your child. If you plan on
visiting the classroom,
please call and make an ap-
pointment through the of-
fice. Welcome, Mrs. Selph!
Kindergarten students
have been busy reading col-
or words in our reading
story. Our reading story
this week was "Mary Wore
the Red Dress." We also
have been practicing the
letters Mm, Jj, Aa, Dd. Par-
ents, please reinforce these
skills at home. We look for-
ward to Mrs. Selph joining


us next week.
Mrs. Mickler's first
graders have been very busy
this week. In reading, we
have been focusing on short
"a" words. I remind you to
go over your child's papers
everyday and practice read-
ing with them. Next week,
your child will be bringing
home a book to read to you.
There will be a paper for you
to sign when the book is
read. Send me the book and
paper back to school the next
day. We need lots and much
practice.
The second grade has be-
gun adding two-digit num-
bers in math. This is a new
hard concept for our stu-
dents. In reading, we discov-
ered the many different tools
used by people throughout
the world. We discussed the
cultures of those people.
Third grade is settling
down to a very busy year.
We are enjoying reading sto-
ries and looking forward to
getting library books to start
Accelerated Reader Tests.
We've been working hard in
math review concepts in the
first unit and getting back
into shape. Science has been
lots of fun, as we have been
learning about the Animal
Kingdom! Our student of
the week is Kristi Howard.
Kristi is a hard working stu-
dent. She is always looking
for ways to be helpful to the
teacher and her fellow stu-
dents. We appreciate Kristi!
Mrs. Howell's fourth
grade Florida History Class,
even though the tempera-
ture was hot, enjoyed our
walking tour to Falling
Creek last Friday. This is one
of the few natural waterfalls
in Florida. Our student of
the week is Casey Davis.


Casey's favorite subject is
science and when not work-
ing on school work, Casey
enjoys singing. Fourth
graders extend our congrat-
ulations to Mrs. Adams on
the birth of her first grand-
child and to C.J. Williams on
the arrival of a new baby sis-
ter.
Fifth grade students are
busy learning how to spell
their States and Capitals.
Congratulations to Levi Al-
ford, Cody Beadles, Savan-
nah Pruitt, and Norman
Snyder for making a perfect
score on their United States
and capitals last week.
Mr. Corbett's sixth graders
are working very hard this
week learning about many
ancient civilizations (Egypt,
Samarians, Greek, and He-
brews). We also continue to
work hard on math. We just
covered "mean," "medium,"
and "mode."
From the Reading Coach,
Mrs. Radford I would like
all parents to know that I am
working with several chil-
dren this year. If you are one
of the parents, you are cer-
tainly welcome to come in
check Qn your child's
progress. I am excited about
the new school year. We
have new materials and
methods. Please come and
sit down with me and let me
tell you how you can enrich
your child's education and
learning process at home.
In Miss Gay's ESE Class,
we extend congratulations
to our student of the week,
Keith Murray. This is the
second time this year that
Keith has received this
award. Good job, Keith! We
continue to review our basic
math skills. In language arts,
we are reviewing nouns and
learning new vocabulary
words.
At South Hamilton "way
down upon the Suwannee
River," "we are changing
lives through'quality educa-
tion."
Have a wonderful week-
end. Labor Day Holiday on
Monday, Sept. 5. No school
or students or staff mem-
bers!

I have a question for you kids! How many times do
you forget to thank God for all that he does for you?
Have you ever even thought about that? I know all of

church, sports, clubs, watching TV, homework, going

but what about God?
Have you ever prayed for God to help you with
something and then forgot about it. Did you think to
thank God when he answered your prayer?
You see God does so much more for us than we have

The greatest act of God
A monster is lurking in the sea, it's given different names.

No matter what they call it, the destruction is all the same.

EVACUATE is the word that's heeded, go find a place of shelter.

Before you're blown clean off the map,
as your worlds turned to helter-skelter.

It shows up red on the radar, while moving to the north.

There's frightened tears in many eyes, be prepared to trust your source.
Storms of this intensity, in three words "acts of God"

But they know not what they mean, as upon this land they trod.

For the "act of God" was made perfect, about two thousand years ago.

When he sent his blessed son, for everyone to know.

Jesus came to rescue all of us, certainly, not to destroy.

He came to bring salvation, to fill believer's hearts with joy.

Don't ever blame the father, for damage such as this,

Your thoughts go this direction, if God's only son you've missed.

The LORD might want to score the ground, to plant His precious seed.

So man may learn the way is Christ, to know He's all we'll ever need.

Still in all, the Master speaks: make ready the land for harvest.

Get battened down and hammered in, and trust the LORD to do His best.

Those that hold solid to their faith, and put their only trust in Him.

KNOW that God's the maker, the keeper of the wind.
Thank you Lord

How many times do we forget?


By Pam Campbell
I have a question for you today. How many
times do each of us forget all that God has done
for us. How many times have you prayed for a
need and God answered your prayer, but you nev-
er even remembered to say thank you? Think
about the times when he has provided for you fi-
nancially, or opened a door just in time for that
job that you desperately needed. How about all of
the times he has protected you from harm, on the
roads, while working, at school, or out at night,
things that we will never know about, yet he does
them just the same. I know that sometimes our
lives seem too rushed, we may have way too much
to do, so many places we are supposed to be,
many people depending on us, it may sometimes
seem like our life is out of control. But always re-
member that it is God who holds you together, he
helps you in every area of your life.
Have you given any thought to how much he
has helped you today or have you been so busy
that you forgot?
Think about your family and friends, the love
that you share, does that just come by accident?
No, it is God who brings all of you together with


his love, and blesses our lives with times together
that make us a family, and we make beautiful
memories for years to come. Have you thought to
take some extra time lately to thank God for your
family and friends, and maybe pray for them, too?
Don't take for granted anything in this life, life is
very precious and it goes by very quickly. Don't
put off time with your family and friends, take
time to enjoy them while you still have them.
Most of all, remember not to take God's love,
protection, grace, mercy, healing, and salvation
for granted. The Bible says in 1 Chronicles 16:11-
12 "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face
continually. Remember his marvelous works that
he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of
his mouth." Think about all of it, and remember
to thank God for it daily.
I am sure that most of us have been sick at some
point of our lives, a cold, a headache, a sore
throat, earache, migraines, the flu, a broken bone,
or maybe something more serious, such as dia-
betes, gout, a stroke, pneumonia, lung, heart, or
blood pressure problems, digestive disorders, can-
cer, whatever sickness or injury either you or
someone in your family has been through, or may


What is Praise and Worship?
In most churches today you will walk in, sit down in Think of it this way, if your children were to ask you
a large area of the building, and then proceed to sing a for something and were cold and unthankful about it,
few songs before the pastor or speaker stands to give a would you want to give them anything? Take those same
sermon or message. That is the typical Sunday morn- kids and let them say, "Daddy, I love you." or "Daddy,
ing routine that thousands of Christians do every Sun- I really appreciate you" you would break the bank to
day morning. The only problem is that in the routine give them whatever they needed. Jesus said in Mat 7:11
we have lost a great part of the power and presence of "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto
God that we so desperately need every day. That part your children, how much more shall your Father which
is praise and worship. is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" If
It does not matter if you sing hymns, Southern we want to give the best to our kids, how much more

purpose. The time for praise and worship is the time that you are not just singing a song, but you are giving

be going through, God is always there to help you
and all who need help. Remember, he is the healer,
the great physician, he heals so many times and in
so many ways that we don't realize, let us always
take time to thank God for his healing, for the
health that we have. God wants to uphold us and
help us, to heal us, to always be our strength.
Before we were ever born, God knew that we
would live, he knew about each one of us and
where would be right now while we are reading
this article. God's love is so amazing, his greatness,
the vastness of his universe is so awesome. How
long has it been since you took time to remember,
to stop all that you are doing, thinking, or worry-
ing about, and just said thank you God. Look up
at the sky, it really is an amazing sight, the multi-
tudes of stars on a beautiful moonlit night, the gor-
geous hues of every shade of blue along with many
amazing shapes of white puffy clouds on a sunny
afternoon. Yes, just look up at some of our God's
handiwork and realize just how much he really
cares!
Over and over, day after day, night after night,
God continues to answer our prayers for healing,
protection, finances, help in school, help to get
things done, we are always asking, always taking
for granted that God will be there for us, and he is.
Over and over and over again, God moves in bur
behalf, and we go on to the next thing in our busy
lives, and again we forget to say thank you. You
see God never fails us, he will always remain faith-
ful, even when we forget. He continuously forgives
us, he always loves us, though we may sometimes
take God for granted, he knows that people forget.
Take comfort in knowing that God never forgets!
I would like to close today with this scripture
from God's word, "Know therefore that the Lord
thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keep-
eth covenant and mercy with them that love him
and keep his commandments to a thousand genera-
tions:" Deuteronomy 7:9. You see God will never
forget us, let us try to remember to thank him.

Growing up versus

growing out

For parents, there is
nothing more
exciting than II 1
welcoming a new
baby into the world l
and watching your A.
little one grow as the '
weeks and months J '|
progress. From the
very first breath to
their first steps, new -
parents count every..,-
new inch of growth
or ounce of weight as
a sign that their little
ones are growing into V
healthy toddlers.
However, with more
than 15percent of all
children in the U.S. ,
overweight, parents
may be asking
themselves how
much growth is too
much in their fuu- weg .


New science
presented during the.
annual meeting of
The Endocrine
Society showed that a WO
rapid increase in a
child's rate of growth
during his or her first six months of life is associated with a higher body mass index
(BMI) at age two. BMI is a standard measure of weight in proportion to length/height
and an indicator of obesity. The results of this study suggest that a child's growth rate
may be an indicator for their future weight.
Because excessive weight gain in childhood is linked with an increased risk for
developing conditions like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, it is
important for parents to know they are not alone if they are concerned about their
child's weight.
"These findings show that rapid increases in a child's growth from birth through the
first six months of infancy may result in a higher BMI when he or she is a toddler,"
says Dr.' Andrea Dunaif, President of 'The Endocrine Society and Chief of
Endocrinology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. "Parents
can discuss with their pediatrician whether an infant's growth pattern is appropriate or
a cause for concern."
In addition, the study showed that the infants who were considered smallest in size
at birth had the highest increase in BMI at age two. This suggests that even for parents
with children who are small at birth, monitoring growth and tracking any rapid
increases with a doctor is useful. Parents who are concerned about their children's
growth rate or weight should ask the following questions of their doctors:
Talking to Your Doctor
Is my child's weight, length/height and growth rate appropriate based on standard
growth measurement percentiles?

Based on family history, is my child at risk for any conditions associated with
excessive weight gain?
When should I follow up with you to assess my child's growth again?
"Parents often come into my office asking whether or not their child's weight is
'normal.' This study seems to show that in addition to a comparing a child's weight to
that of their peers, we need to be assessing whether the rate of growth is appropriate,"
says Dr. Henry Anhalt, a pediatric endocrinologist with The Endocrine Society's
Obesity Advisory Board and Saint Barnabas Medical Center. "If you notice that your
infant is gaining weight rapidly, consult your pediatrician. They can assess the
situation, and if necessary, recommend a specialist who can provide guidance."
'Working together with a pediatrician,
parents can monitor their children's
growth through these early stages to
ensure that each new milestone is a *e
healthy one.

Shrimp

Continued From Page 1C light picnic or host a neighbor-
hood pool party, you can use
Florida ocean caught shrimp as
an appetizer, the main course or side dish. The Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer Services offers the following
tips for hosting a Labor Day gathering, including festive ways to
incorporate& a g-caught Florida shrimp.
I I Rel.ing and entertaining outdoors is a standard sum-
mertime activity so why not chill out with a picnic? Dinner out
in the open is perfect for those warm and lazy summer nights.
Shrimp and veggie quiche can be cut into convenient single
servings and easily toted along, with the rest of the traditional
picnic fare, such as fresh Florida fruit and cold beverages. Be
sure to bring a blanket (or two!) large enough to seat your entire
dinner crew. And don't forget to practice food safety. Thorough-
ly chill or warm the food before you leave and store it in appro-
priate containers a cooler with plenty of ice for the cold food
and an insulated container or bag for the warm food.
2) Summertime weather especially in Florida is often
unpredictable. Have a back-up plan in case you need to move
the gathering inside. Florida shrimp on the backyard grill can
easily be toted indoors and fried, sauteed, boiled, broiled or
baked in the kitchen.
3) Be the host with the most by preparing your dishes in
advance. Cold food like zesty shrimp gazpacho is always wel-
come in hot weather and best when prepared ahead of time.
4) If you're the host, relieve stress by letting your guests
help out. By making the grill a central aspect of your party, you
can allow your guests to take a turn rotating the shrimp on the
grill without taking away from their time to socialize. This is an
effective way to keep their interest and taste buds fully en-
gaged while decreasing your workload.
5) Take advantage of all the fresh ingredients available
this time of year. Get creative and mix seasonal specialties with
a universal favorite shrimp and sweet corn saute. This is one
example of mixing shrimp with the season's finest.
6) Themed parties are always fun why not try a
Caribbean theme? Give your guests a taste of the islands with
shrimp bigarrade with Caribbean ratatouille or coconut fried
shrimp.
This Labor Day, enjoy the warm weather and extra free time
that the holiday brings'by hosting a get-together with family and
friends. With your favorite people, these party tips and Ameri-
ca's favorite seafood, your gathering is sure to be a sizzling suc-
cess for the last big summer soiree. For more wild and wonder-
ful recipes using ocean-caught Florida shrimp, please visit

Dear Classified Guys,
I was on my way to work when a
house passed me on the highway.
I'm sure you know the ones I'm talk-
ing about. It's those prefabs that are
moved in halves to their new loca-
tion. As it pulled alongside and I
looked through the protective plastic
at the master bath, I realized it was a
nicer house than mine. When I had
my house built years ago, it took
more than 10 months. Now I'm won-
dering if prefabs are actually better
than building on-site. I see
builders advertising in my
newspaper to build them all
the time. Are there sub- .
stantial cost savings by
building with prefabs? .

Carry: No matter how many times I
see one, I still think it's strange to see a
house traveling down the highway.
Cash: But it would be stranger to see
a family eating dinner while it's moving.
Carry: Prefab houses have changed a
lot over the years and today are more
common than you may think. If fact,
many people have visited family or
friends who live in one and probably
never even realized it.
Cash: Years ago, prefab houses were
considered to be lesser quality and poor-


rE-H iiniI





Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


@2005 The Classified Guys@


ly constructed. It was common to see a
house with trim down the side where the
two halves joined together. However
today, many of the prefab builders have
incorporated improved engineering and
manufacturing procedures to create
excellent quality homes.
Carry: Most prefab homes are manu-
factured in factory conditions. Much of
the construction is automated or per-
formed in a controlled environment so
the weather conditions don't affect the
materials. This helps reduce the possi-
bility of mold, a recent concern in the
housing market.
Cash: The selection of prefab
designs has also grown over the years.


With so many design options, it's like
hiring a personal architect.
Carry: The largest benefit to prefabri-
cated houses is time and cost.
Depending on the design, a prefab house
can be completed in one third of the time
of on-site construction and can save you
up to 10% or more on the cost.
Cash: Much of the savings results
from the lack of delays due to bad
weather or coordinating the subcontrac-
tors. Since 80% to 90% of the construc-
tion is performed in the factory, very
little needs to be finished on site.
Carry: And who knows, maybe one
day the house will be shipped fully
furnished.


Modular Idea
Modular homes are not a new idea.
They have been built in the US since
1890. Around 1908 Sears started sell-
ing mail-order homes through catalogs
and shipped them around the country.
Between 1908 and 1940, they sold over
100,000 homes. The houses were typi-
cally mass-produced box type designs
ranging in price from $500 to $5,000.
The kits included everything you need-
ed like nails, paint, lumber, building
supplies and thankfully, a step-by-step
manual.
Half the Story
When prefabricated houses became
popular in the 1970's, some of them
gained the stereotype of cheap designs
and poor quality. However, today's pre-
fabricated houses are a whole new
design and stronger than ever. In fact,
most prefab designs incorporate more
lumber and supports than their on-site
counterparts. Since the houses must be
transported from the factory to the con-
struction site, additional lumber and
supports are added to secure a safe trip
and a quality finished product.

sitive about her weight.
One day, I began to notice the
change when we were traveling
down the highway. As the traffic
merged, we ended up driving direct-
ly behind a tractor-trailer carrying
one of those large modular homes.
My wife looked around and became
increasing nervous, slumping down
in her seat.
"Does the house in front of us
bother you?" I asked her.
"It's not the house," she replied.
"It's the big sign on the car behind
us that says, Wide Load Ahead"
(Thanks to Samuel K.)
