Trinity Hospital
accepting donations
Trinity Community Hospital in
Jasper, is accepting donations for the
victims of Hurricane Katrina. Non-
perishable food, personal hygiene
items, wet wipes and diapers are need-
ed immediately. For more information .
contact Sandy Beal 792-7252 or Mar- .'
garet Hobby at 792-7207.
Hosts needed for 50 families ?|
Charlotte Green said that -she has
been in contact with FEMA and is ex-
pecting as many as 50 families to seek
refuge in Hamilton County. She is
seeking hosts with a spare room, an
empty camper or an available house. A Risin
spokesperson with FEMA told Green though
that host families would be reim- days,
bursed for food expenses.
If housing cannot be found for the **
families, Green will set tip tents, air
mattresses, etc., for them on her prop- *i
erty. She is accepting donations for the
families who are expected to arrive
soon and she will ship excess dona-
tions to the Gulf area.
For more information call 938-5303
or 792-1179. Donations may be

Gulf Coast. There have been several lo- huge.
cal families who have taken in family bein,
members and friends. Some of these State
families have already tried to return to
their homes or what is left of them.
Sharon Gay, Hamilton. County
Community Health Nursing Director,
said the initial health teams are set up
in the Gulf area and that it is probable r.
that a team from the Hamilton County
Health Department will be needed to
help later. She stated that the health
department has helped some evacuees
to get their prescriptions refilled at the
local pharmacies.
Sheriff's deputies help
out fellow officers
Deputy Tim McDaniel and Deputy
Marvin Page of the Hamilton County
Sheriffs Office joined deputies from
Putnam and Marion Counties in Gulf-
port, Miss., as part of the Florida Sher-
iff's Association Task Force. The
deputies left Friday, carrying their own
food, water, gas and other supplies.
While in Gulfport, the Florida
deputies will relieve the local law en-
forcement officers from their duties so
that they may take care of their fami-
lies and homes. Deputies McDaniel
and Page are patrolling the beaches to
deter looters. They are expected to re-
turn in seven to ten days, when they
will rotate out with another group of FLOI
deputies. hand

emphasizes traffic(


The Labor Day holiday
weekend signals the end of
summer and many people hit
the road for one last vacation.
There are more people living
and traveling in Florida than
ever before, and the holiday
generates even more traffic.
For some it may be a trip they
never return from. Last year
there were 23 traffic crash fa-
talities during the Labor Day
holiday.
Through the combined ef-
forts of law enforcement offi-
cers from six states Florida,
Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee,


South Carolina and North
Carolina the Hands Across
the Border campaign contin-
ues to strive to save lives
through education, communi-
ty awareness and enforce-
ment of laws.. The campaign
was created in 1991 to raise
public awareness of the dead-
ly consequences of speeding,
driving while drunk or
drugged, and the failure to
use safety belts or child re-
straints.

statewide

Investigation into

skyrocketing

fuel prices
Attorney General Charlie Crist re-
cently sent teams of investigators and
sworn law enforcement personnel
from his office to locations through-
out Florida. Crist said investigators
will be looking to determine whether
the rapid rise of gas prices meets the
legal definition of gouging, and
vowed to prosecute any violations of
the law.
* Al- As of 1 p.m., Friday, Sept. 2, the At-
few torney General's toll-free consumer
hotline (1-866-966-7226) had received
1,050 complaints about skyrocketing
gas prices in the days since Hurricane
Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast. The
investigation seeks to determine
whether the increases are caused by
legitimate market forces or are in-
stead the result of illegal price goug-
ing.
S "When we hear of 75- to 90-cent
price spikes within two days, or re-
ages ports that surcharges are being
sta- tacked onto consumers' fuel costs,
unty then it is our duty to investigate,"
ly of said Crist. "Floridians understood

New toll-free number and website connect

hurricane evacuees to people offering housing


Last week, MoveOn.org
Civic Action created a new
web site, www.hurricane-
housing.org, asking its 3.3
million members and the
public to post any available
housing for the thousands
of people left homeless by
Hurricane Katrina.
In just a few days, people
across the country opened
their homes and offered
nearly 100,000 beds, 30,000
of them in the southeastern
U.S. where housing is most
urgently needed.


A new toll-free number;
1-800-638-4559, has also
been created to directly con-
nect evacuees with housing
donors. Operators taking
calls will stay on the line to
guide evacuees through the
www.hurricanehousing.org
matching process.,
The 800 number will be
open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Central time and is current-
ly being funded by Califor-
nia philanthropists Andy
and Deborah Rappaport.
The Rappaports have


agreed to pay the costs of
the hotline until donations
are made available.
The public can post free
housing offers (a spare
room, extra bed, even a de-
cent couch), then evacuees
and aid workers can search
for available housing on-
line or call the hotline.
MoveOn is working to pro-
vide the housing informa-
tion to the Federal Emer-
gency Management
Agency (FEMA) and other
relief groups.

words of appreciation for
the cooperation between
the states in promoting safe
driving.
The officers then traveled
in a convoy of official cars,
trucks and motorcycles
with lights flashing north
on 1-75 to Lake Park and
circled back south to the
Florida Welcome Center.
After a few more words of
thanks from representa-
tives of the Hamilton
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, the Jasper Police De-
partment, the Live Oak Po-
lice Department and others,
the guests enjoyed a light
lunch provided by the staff
of the Welcome Center.


Law enforcement officers
were out in force over the
Labor Day holiday week-
end delivering the mes-
sage, "You drink you dri-
ve you lose." The cost of
being caught, arrested and
prosecuted for driving after
using drugs or drinking al-
cohol can be in the thou-
sands of dollars. Impaired
drivers can lose their li-
cense and car. If charged
with vehicular homicide,
drivers can even lose their
liberty.
"Law enforcement agen-
cies joined forces to encour-
age all motor vehicle occu-
pants to use safety belts
and to drive sober during
the holiday," said Carla
Sims, Florida Department


of Transportation Traffic
Safety Administrator.
State troopers, Sheriff's
deputies and other police
officers set up sobriety
checkpoints along the high-
ways. Sober drivers re-
ceived pamphlets on im-
paired driving, seat belt
safety and child restraint
use. Drunk or drugged dri-
vers went to jail.
The Georgia Governor's
Office of Highway Safety
Director.Bob Dallas stated,
"This operation sends a
message to the motoring
public that traffic laws will
be strictly enforced from
state to state in a seamless
effort to save lives during
the deadly Labor Day holi-
day travel period."


Tens, maybe hundreds
of thousands of men,

Hurricane Katrina, hun-
dreds of production plat-
forms were evacuated,
shutting down 95% of the
United States' oil produc-
tion and 88% of its natural
,gas output.
The Gulf Coast is a major
area of energy production
for the U.S. the site of
production platforms, re-
fineries, storage tanks and
pipelines. Thirty percent of


the United States' total oil
production comes from the
Gulf area, as well as twen-
ty percent of the natural
gas products. Sixty percent
of oil imports arrive at
Gulf ports and almost half
of U.S. oil refineries are lo-
cated in the area.
After Hurricane Ivan in
2004, repairs to pipelines
took as long as six months
before full production was
resumed. Since Hurricane
Katrina, port officials have


been busy with search and
rescue missions and have
not been able to assess the
damage to the oil facilities
or to inspect the shipping
channels and docks.
President George Bush
has released crude oil from
the Strategic Petroleum Re-
serves to help alleviate the
situation. Even so, econo-
mists expect fuel prices -
including gas, home heat-
ing oil and natural gas to
rise 30% to 75%.

Our Sad

September

Snow
By Vincent Spada

Morning broke once more, with pure and simple trust
We believed the door was closed, and the lock free of rust.
But sadly, we were wrong. We were out there in the gale;
Our ship did toss in a sea of tears, with torn and tattered sail.
The planes, they came in low, streaking fast across the sky.
They whistled past the structures, caught in the public's eye.
First one, and then the next, but a few minutes apart,
and in those tragic moments, they broke our country's heart.
The explosion seemed like fiction. The fire and the smoke:
We all drew in the toxins, and gave a sickly choke.
The buildings soon fell down. That scene we all remember,
when ashes hit the air, and it snowed in our September.
Steel dropped like meteors. Glass like hot rain.
We heard our brother's screams, and felt our sister's pain.
Dear God, why did it happen? Dear God, what made it so?
Dear God, what brought our September this cruel and vi-
cious snow?
Lord, help us in our task. Lord, help us in our prayer.
Lord, guide us to our friends who need our gentle care.
Lord, take us by the hand, and tell us where to go.
Lord, lead us through the blizzard of our sad September
snow.
Our family members are gone. With grief we hang our head.
We place our hand to our heart, and mourn our coun-
try's dead.
But we owe them our pledge. They must see that we
still thrive.
We must show them and this world that justice is alive.
This country is not lost. Our flag is still up high.
Those things we love so dearly in truth can never die.
Let wisdom be our compass, and someday we will know
How and why we suffered this gray and dismal snow.
Time will not diminish it. The memory long will last.
The image will still be there in years yet to be passed,
And children in the future will read about this day
when it snowed in our September, and the world lost
it's way.

Spiritual

Guidance
By Pastor Doug Hilliard, First Presbyterian Church of Jasper


"The Future Belongs to God"


Many Christians and
non-believers make finan-
cial decisions that are moti-
vated by fear of the future
rather than by trust in God
and in his provision. Liter-
ally everything in the uni-
verse belongs to God, God
created it all, and God
wants us to trust his provi-
sion.
In 1 Chronicles 29, it re-
cites a final prayer of Is-
rael's King David, in which
David acknowledges in
verse 11, "Yours, 0 Lord, is
the greatness and the pow-
er and the glory and the
majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven
and earth is yours (NIV)."
David knew God is in con-
trol!
Faith is the opposite of
fear. In Hebrews 11:1, it de-
scribes faith as things that
we hope for and things that
we do not presently see or
have. "The fundamental
fact of existence is that this
trust in God, this faith, is
the firm foundation under
everything that makes life
worth living. It's our han-
dle on what we can't see
(Message)." God's plan is
that we have some pressing
needs in our lives in order
for us to develop our faith
in him. That is why it's vital
for us to see our financial
needs as opportunities to
exercise and develop our
faith.


AARP safe driving

course for Sept.


The Women's Club of
Jasper, will be sponsoring
the AARP SAFE driving
course for motorists age 50
plus at their facility locat-
ed at 403 NW 6th Ave., on
Sept. 29 and Sept. 30, from
9 a.m. until 1 p.m. daily.
There is a $10 registra-
tion fee per applicant. To


register call 1-800-227-
7669 or visit
www.aarp.org / drive or
call Dave Bailey at 938-
2010.
An auto insurance dis-
count is given in most
states. Contact an insur-
ance agent for more infor-
mation.


If we are fearful of our fi-
nancial future, then we
aren't trusting in God's
grace or in his provision. In
effect, we are choosing to
serve the fear of financial
loss and imposing false lim-
itations on God, rather than
serving God who has con-
quered all fear and holds
the future in his hands.
We live in an extremely
materialistic society. Too
often, our priorities are
based on desires and
wants, our "Christmas
List," rather than on real
needs. Our perspective of
what is actually a need is
blurred by what our mate-
rialistic society promotes.
Although God has
promised that he will al-
ways supply our needs, he
has not promised that he
will supply all of our petty
wants and desires.
Prayer is the key that un-
locks God's blessings, pow-
er, and direction. 1 Thessa-
lonians 5:17-18 reads, "Be
joyful always; pray contin-
ually; give thanks in all cir-
cumstances, for this is
God's will for you in Jesus


Christ (NIV)." -
Be warned, God may ni.
choose to answer o+r
prayers the way that we
want or expect. His answer
very well may be "no," so
we can mature in our faith
and learn to rely totally on
him.
There could be different
reasons why God may nmyt
answer our prayers in the.
way we expect. We may
ask with the wrong mo-
tives. James 4:3 reads,
"When you ask, you do not
receive, because you ask
with wrong motives, that
you may spend what you
get on your pleasures
(NIV)." It may not be the
right time according to
God's will and purpose, ur
it may even be opposed to
God's overall plan.
Even though we are pres-
sured daily with doubts
concerning the financial ft-
ture of our nation's econo-
my and the economies of
the world, or the price of.-a
gallon of gasoline, we must
not doubt that God is in
complete control. Do not
panic and do not spuc'cumb
to the grip of fear of what
the future may hold. Keep
your commitments and
promises to God, pray
without ceasing, and trust
him without reservation. -,
Worship this week in the
church of your choice. .,

PAGE 6A THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 8. 2005


Labor day has passed us,
and I sincerely hope every-
one had a great weekend.
With gas being the price it
is, I stuck pretty close to
home. Filling up now al-
most requires a bank loan.
Daddy always told me
about gas being rationed
during World War II. At
this point in time,., it isn't
being rationed, we just
can't afford a lot of it.
I don't know the answer
to the energy dilemma,
and the energy dilemma is
a small dilemma compared
to the suffering of those in
New Orleans and along the
coastal areas. Our concerns
are small compared to
their problems. They are
our brothers and our sis-
ters our fellow Ameri-
cans. Let's continue to
keep them in our prayers
and help if we can.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Gilbert
McGhinn. Gilbert was a
longtime White Springs
resident who died sudden-
ly and tragically last week.
Our sympathy is extended
to his loving wife, Ethel,
his daughters Amy and
Karen, as well as the sons-
in-law, the grandchildren,
and all the other friends
and relatives. Gilbert was a
wonderful husband, fa-
ther, grandfather, and a
good friend. He will be
missed by many in our
area, including me. The
family has the prayers of
our White Springs commu-
nity.
I would like to personal-
ly thank Don Fenneman,
School Board member
from Jasper. Mr. Fenneman
was the sole elected official
who attended the Jim


Davis reception hosted by
members of our family at
the Telford Hotel on Aug.
31, at he Telford Hotel.
Thank you, Don. We also
appreciate the hard work
done by the staff the
Telford Hotel. The food
was delicious and well pre-
pared. Thank you Nick,
Kathy, and staff. The event
was well attended, and for
all of our many friends
who braved the rain to
come out God bless you
and we appreciate you.
I especially want to
thank one of our county's
most devoted Democrats,
"Aunt" Liz Avriett Barrett.
God bless your, "Miss Eliza-
beth". Truly, you are one
our county's treasures, and
you continue to hold the ti-
tle of "Mrs. Democrat."
My good friend and fel-
low Jasper News corre-
spondent, Lillian Norris,
is, truly, a delightful indi-
vidual. Though not born in
the palmettos and pines of
our region, Mrs. Norris, is
"one of us," as she has em-
braced this area with her
whole heart, and she, and
her late husband, Dr. Wade
B. Norris, Sr., through the
years, made many positive
contributions to our
beloved Hamilton County.
I appreciate Mrs. Norris
taking the time to write her
column. It means so much
to so many, including me.
I read, with interest, this
past week in the Suwannee
Democrat, about a lady
who is 90 years old and still
working as a hairdresser. I
am continually amazed at
the activity of many of our
90 plus residents in Hamil-
ton County including John
C. Camp, E.V. Stormant,


Elizabeth Barrett, Granny
"Bessie" Burkett, and I
could go on and on. I ap-
preciate the wisdom and
example provided by these
fine individuals.
Among the out of town
visitors who came for the
Jim Davis event, hosted by
the Bullard Family of
White Springs was Lee
Lewis, Vice President and
Mortgage Loan Originator
at First Federal, Fernandi-
na Beach, Fla. Lewis was a
guest of the Bullard Family
and spent the night at the
Health Club, the Bullard
Family Hunting Camp.
Other out of town guests
included Deborah Tannen-
baum, daughter of Doug
and Donita Tannenbaum
of Lake City.
Deborah lives in Tampa,
Fla., and works for the De-
mocratic National Com-
mittee. Deborah's grand-
mother, Betty Tannen-
baum, now a resident of
Washington, D.C., owned
and operated the Lovely
Shop for many 'years in
Lake City.
Janet Moses has some
beautiful things in her
shop and will be conduct-
ing several workshops. On
Saturday, Sept. 10, she will
offer a fall wreath window
painting workshop. These
windows retail for $125,
but you will be able to cre-
ate your own to take home.
Janet will provide hands
on instructions, and then
Janet's mother, chef extra-
ordinaire, Judy Pruitt, will
share terrific cooking tips


with fall herbs. The cost of
this workshop is $65. Other
classes include making a

Quote for the week:
"Throw out the lifeline
across the dark wave;
There is a brother whom
someone should, save;
Somebody's brother! Oh,
who then will dare, To
throw out the lifeline, his
peril to share? Throw out
the lifeline! Throw out the
lifeline! Someone is drift-
ing away; Throw out the
lifeline! Throw out the life-
line! Someone is sinking
today. (Traditional hymn
by Edwin S. Ufford)
Have a good week,
Hamilton, County I love
you.

Trojans vs. Lanier action

Trojans Fall in Fort White


The Hamilton County Trojans varsity
football team fell to the Fort White Indi-
ans on Friday night by a score of 32-0.
The Trojans just could not get on
track and the Indians could do no
wrong. At one point in the game, a snap
went over the Indians punters' head,
but he still managed to get back to the
ball and get a monster punt off.
The Trojans outstanding. running-
back, Lathaniel Sowell had a beautiful
athletic run early in the game that bust-
ed for 25 yards, but was negated by a
penalty.
The entire first half was played on the
Jasper side of the field which resulted
in the Trojans going into the locker
room down 25-0.
The Indians defense scored on two
safety's, collected three fumbles, and
intercepted three passes.
The Trojans were not without some
outstanding efforts however. Ray
Gandy came into the game late in the
first quarter and intercepted a deflected
pass by Cameron Cohen and returned
the ball to the Indians 33. Windham
and Sowell would only be able to move
the ball to the 26 before an interception
stopped the drive.
Gandy and Sowell were both a force
on defense making a combined 10 tack-
les unofficially. Gandy made big plays
at the line while Sowell kept anything
from turning the corner and was out-
standing in coverage.


Whoe Roberson had a 'good defensive
game himself getting in on six tackles
and recovering a fumble.
The Trojans did force two fumbles
with Doc Hendry stopping a deep drive
following a Trojans turnover with a
strip and recovery of his own.
Trojans quarterback Eddie Battles
said it best following the game, "We
have to make things right." This Trojans
team knows they are a better team than
what produced a minus three rushing
attack and only 18 yards total offense.
The Trojans will have to regroup be-
fore this Friday night in Chiefland as
the task does not get any easier for this
group.
Chiefland will enter the game at 0-2
following a two point loss to Cross City,
and an overtime loss to Williston.
The Indians will bring a talented
group of seniors to the field. The offen-
sive line will put Jacob Douglas and
Keagon Weatherford to block for full-
back and outstanding linebacker Mike
Rome. Chiefland has a tradition of field-
ing ant outstanding linebacker crew, and
will do so again with Justin Hill joining
Rome. The Indians also have an out-
standing receiver and free safety Jamaal
Riley.
Jonas Randolph is off to a great start
this season, as he single handily kept the
Indians alive against Cross City scoring
both touchdowns, one rushing and one
on a 50 yard punt return for a TD.


JV Trojans impressive in

24-7 win over PK Young


Middle School learning rapidly


The Hamilton County Middle school
team dropped a contest to Lanier this past
week, but had some solid efforts from
Courtney McCloud with three catches. The
team played a great second half and de-
spite the loss, gave a total team effort/



afI


against Lanier.
The middle school football team will be
home tonight against Howard from Monti-
cello with a 5 p.m. kickoff with the junior
varsity team to follow at 7 p.m. against
West Nassau County from Callahan.


Jermaine Walker scored three touch-
downs and DD Deatris returned an inter-
ception for a TD to lead the JV Trojans to
an opening season win.
The young Trojans got outstanding play
from their linebackers, and also great play
by guard Adam Morman collecting five
sacks and did a great job of blocking.
Chad Billington was also able to get into
the Blue Wave backfield on several occa-


sions getting a couple of sacks and harass-
ing the offensive backfield of the Blue
Wave.
On .the offensive line, Tylor Morgan
and Martin Taylor did a great job of
blocking allowing the execution of the of-
fense leading to the big win.
Other key performers were Will Heirs
at the defensive end position, and Josh
McCoy after forcing a couple of fumbles.


Patrick Murphy, the new Athletic direc-
tor at HCHS, is eager to help all the
sports teams improve their games Battles looks for Mitchell down the field.


Mike Casey got quite a few snaps against the Indians. Here he pitches to Sowell.

Coach Green never quit coaching in this one. He knew there would be good with the bad.
This was a game to help the Trojans to grow.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Of course the first thing on
everyone's mind this week is
the scene of horror we have
been watching for the past
week. We just can't seem to
keep from looking at it, hop-
ing that it will get better and
hoping that it may not be as
bad as it seems. It is, and
probably worse than we can
even imagine. This morning
as I stepped outside, it is
calm and peaceful, we are
safe, most grateful, even with
hurricanes near us, we
would not have the water
and flooding that has com-
pletely destroyed much of
the states affected, never to
be the same again.
We may never know how
many lives have been lost, or
how much of the lives of the
victims of destruction has
been lost. Their life as they
knew it can never be the
same. Our prayers are that
they may be able to pick up


the pieces, know that others
care and are praying for
them.
As the anniversary of 9/11
arrives we will remember
how horrible it was to turn
on the television and see the
destruction caused by the
terrorists in New York. It is
still a terrible vision in our
minds as this past week will
be, for years to come, and for-
ever for some people.
Relatives of the late A.L.
Young had to leave their
home in Metarie, near New
Orleans, in La. They were
leaving Jasper Monday
morning. They had been told
that they could get back into
their town, but have no idea
what they would find. Those
who were here were the fam-
ily of the late Norman Young
(who you may remember as
the brother of the late A.L.
Young). The family got to
Tallahassee where Norman's


brother lives and called
Joann Young from DeFuniak
Springs, they came on to
Jasper. With Norman, were
his wife and two children, his
wife's 83 year old aunt, his
wife's two sisters, their hus-
bands and two children.
While here Jennie and Elbert
Hughes invited them to stay
at their farm home off road 6,
we are sure that was good for
them, they could, all be to-
gether, maybe try to make
some plans, although not
knowing how to plan when
you do not know what you
will find, it must be hard to
do. Our prayers go with
them.
Joann spent the past week-
end with her son Alan and
his wife, April and their chil-
dren in Pembroke, GA.
This will be a big weekend
in Jasper, guess we had bet-
ter stay out of the way, as the
graduation class of 1955 of
Jasper High School will be
taking over the town and
county. They will be starting
with dinner at the Telford
House in White Springs on
Friday, breakfast at H&F Sat-
urday, the Woman's Club


will be open on Saturday for
visiting and reliving memo-
ries and a reunion dinner
that evening. Dr. Charles
Courtoy, a classmate, will be
delivering the message at
First United Methodist
Church on Sunday morning
and the class will be attend-
ing as a group. Dr. Courtoy's
wife, Mitty, was also a mem-
ber of the class and her father
was pastor of the Methodist
Church at that time. We
know of many who will be
coming, you will hear much
about it in the weeks to come.
Have a great weekend!
A special service com-
memorating the 9/11 attack
on New York will be held
Thursday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m. at
Calvary Baptist Church, ac-
cording to Rev. Wendell Hill.
The service will be honoring
law enforcement officials
who are all invited to attend.
The speaker will be a repre-
sentative of the Florida High-
way Patrol. The Youth
Group of Jasper Presbyterian
Church will be in charge of
the service at the Church on
Sunday morning, Sept. 11, in
memory of the 9/11 attack.
Miss Brandie Taylor, bride-


elect of James Hinton, Jr., was
honored at a miscellaneous
shower on Saturday, Aug. 20,
in the Fellowship Hall of the
Jasper Presbyterian Church.
Hostesses were friends of
Brandie and James. They
were Michelana Byrd, Erin
Driggers, Cheryl McCall,
Carol Harvey. Guests includ-
ed James' mother, Ann Hin-
ton; grandmothers, Sybil
Hinton and Rose Selph,
aunts, Gertrude Anderson
and Vonda Selph; James' sis-
ter, Lori Hinton, bridesmaids
and many relatives and
friends. Guests were invited
to view the many gifts from
friends and relatives, and to
the refreshment table where
they were offered a variety of
delicious finger foods, cake
and punch, served by the
hostesses. Brandie and James
will be married on Wednes-
day, Sept. 10, in Madison,
Fla.
Information from Sheriff
Harrell Reid is that two
members of the Drug Task
Force of the Hamilton Coun-
ty Sheriff's Department, Sgt.
Tim McDaniel and Deputy
Marvin Page, volunteered to
go last week with a group


made up of members of Sher-
iffs Departments in the State
of Florida, as members of a
staging force for the areas of
the disaster and they will be
assigned after their arrival.
Our Hamilton County fire-
fighters had a great day Sat-
urday, in their collection for
Jerry Lewis Telethon, they
raised $935. They were busy
and did a good job, the
young people were out in
force. The Firefighters are
also sending $200 to the Red
Cross relief fund, they are
sending it through a credit
union that will match it, giv-
ing a total donation of $400.
How fortunate we are to
have our firemen, our law
enforcement, they are all de-
voted, thank them when you
see them.
There are so many of our
family and friends who are ill
and sad at this time, remem-
ber all our loved ones as we
go about our daily tasks, you
know the ones who need you
most.
It is a beautiful day, the sun
is shining and we are most
grateful for this day.

II P R tTHE-ASPE NEWS, F THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER8,2


Welcome to the "Banks
Perspective." This week's
topic should be no sur-
prise, the hurricane. Not
just any hurricane, but the
fierce Hurricane Katrina.
Here we go.
Hurricane Katrina is
known as the most deadly
hurricane in world history.
The storm disappeared as
tropical depression 10, re-
born as tropical depression
12, and destroyed as Hurri-
cane Katrina. Hurricane
Katrina has been the talk of
the world for the past week
and a half. The talk of Kat-
rina started off fairly slow
with the assumption that
she had no intentions of
striking the United States.
On Friday, Aug. 26, it
built up to a category one
storm. Then Katrina
shocked the nation as she
turned and hit South Flori-
da. Leaving many dead and
wounded, Hurricane Katri-
na had not even been
scratched and was ready
for more. Not knowing
what was ahead, the USA,
the country of strength and
leadership, became its prey.
Saturday, Aug. 27, citi-
zens of New Orleans, La.,
Biloxi, Miss., and Mobile,
Ala., tried their best to
evacuate to safety, as Katri-
na fought her way across
the gulf claiming her own
path, with no hesitation.
With only 600 miles left un-
til she struck land once
again, we all sat for days
and watched. Thinking the
storm would hit later, Mon-
day morning, Aug. 29, Kat-
rina fooled the United
States as she started demol-
ishing those southern states
late Sunday night, leaving
many people un-evacuated


without necessities or aid.
The city of New Orleans,
famous for the "French
Quarters" and the tradi-
tional "Mardi Gras" had
been razed. The city had
been destroyed, but so had
the people of New Orleans.
Those who evacuated along
with those who stayed are
now homeless. No one ever
thought that Monday
would be the last time
Louisiana and Mississippi
would claim their fame and
fortune.
The people who did not
evacuate are homeless,
hungry, dirty, injured, sick,
heartbroken and trauma-
tized. They now live on the
streets in boxes or wherev-
er there is space to lay their
heads. The citizens of New
Orleans have lost trust and
faith in our country as we
have seen on TV. It is our
responsibility as stable and
caring people to help re-
store their faith. There are
children, women, men, old
and young fighting to sur-
vive the crazy streets of
what they once knew as
"home."
This storm has- lead to
killing of relatives, suicide,
theft and the formation of
gangs taking over a city
that is no longer there.
These two cities, once beau-
tiful and great places to vis-
it because of the immacu-
late scenery are now cities
of rubbish, waste and de-
spair. I speak of them both
with great sincerity because
that is where I visited dur-
ing my summer vacation.
I speak from experience
about evacuation because I
too was a victim of much
fright when Hurricane
Dennis came through not


THE BANK'S

PERSPECTIVE


By Jonathan Banks


long ago. Now all of us that
once knew those cities as
they once were can only re-
member and reminisce of
how they were and not
what they have become, a
place of disaster.
There were no hiding
places; she (Katrina). came
in like someone with au-
thority and pulled back all
the covers, leaving all of
her victims behind without
concern. Texas has opened
her arms and displayed
much empathy to her
neighboring state, allowing
many New Orleans citizens
to stay there.
Four days later, the de-
molished city and her de-
spaired residents were vis-
ited by President Bush in
his helicopter on' Friday,
Sept. 2. He pledged 10.5 bil-
lion dollars for the initia-
tion of rebuilding the cities.
Hopefully this will help the
process of evacuations and
aid of the city of New Or-
leans. That is a start for ma-
terialistic things, but what
about sentimental things
and lost lives, not only dur-
ing but after Katrina.
I once called this place
home this summer but I no
longer know what to call
the city of Biloxi, Miss. This
place was once an open
view of the beach in the day
and a lit-up city of casinos
at night. It has only been a'
month since I left Biloxi on
vacation where I found in-
terest and obsession in its
wonderful beaches, casi-
nos, and historic land
marks.
Most people in this state
said Camilla was nothing
compared to Katrina. I look
at pictures now as I write
this, and see my favorite
casino "Treasure Bay" as it
floats displaced with holes
and misplaced features.
Many people in Biloxi tried
to evacuate and most suc-
ceeded, but those who
stayed were either left
wounded or dead. The high
maintenance air force base


is now nothing but a land
full of civilians and brave
soldiers trying to find the
pieces to a puzzle and
struggling to figure out
how to fit the pieces back
together again. The city
that was once known to
have eight flags fly above
it now has none.
I have family and
friends helping restore the
city. The soldiers of

The hearts of all of us at
South Hamilton are sad-
dened by the tragedy
wrought by Hurricane Katri-
na in New Orleans, and,
along the coastal areas of
Mississippi and Alabama.
We watch, with disbelief, as
the terrible news from these
areas unfolds before our
eyes. Please keep our fellow
Americans in your thoughts
and prayers. Our students
and staff members will col-
lect money for the Red Cross
next week.
If you can send a dollar,
five dollars, a quarter, dime,
nickel or penny anything
will help alleviate the suffer-
ing of so many in the hurri-
cane area. We will give each
teacher a collection envelope
next week, and they will
record for one week, the
amount of money collected
by students at our school. We
will not give prizes for top
collector, etc., but we will
make sure that all of our stu-
dents are rewarded for their
efforts in helping with this
tragedy. God bless you all
and God bless America!!!
Mrs. Edwards and Mrs. Er-
ixton's PK Classes are getting


ready .to make their trip to
Red Lobster in Lake City.
This is always a great treat
for our students. Students
will learn all about different
fish and sea creatures.
. Come out and join us in
our PK adventure. Things for
us are going along "swim-
mingly."
Mrs. Anita Selph and Miss
Donna Scaff, kindergarten
teachers, are working very
hard on teaching those im-
portant "Sunshine State Stan-
dards" that are so important
to kindergarten students.
Students are enjoying stories,
rhymes, learning about col-
ors and numbers in kinder-
garten. Kindergarten is being
helped each day by Ms.
Anith Dye and Ms. Eames-
tine Johnson, paraprofession-
als who help our kinder-
garten students.
Mrs. Mickler's first graders
are really off to a good start,
and we are learning more
each day about becoming
more proficient readers. Par-
ents, grandparents, and com-
munity supporters, we need
your help and encourage-
ment. Students need to read
to you each night for a mini-


National Guard, and other
military soldiers are trying
to clean the city, rescue
lives, and clear out the
dead bodies in the city. Af-
ter these cities are com-
pletely evacuated of
refugees, it is said that it
will take many months to
restore the cities back to or-
der.

Mrs. Schmid's second

week. It reminded us of the
wonderful summer pastime -
bicycle riding. We continued
to work hard on two-digit
addition in Math. Students
learned about the different
landforms in Social Studies.
Mrs. Adams' third grade
has had a great week explor-
ing friends and friendships.
We read the story "Herbie
and Annabelle" by Suzie
Kline, and this story brought
up many stories about our
friends. We've made "get
well" cards for a sick friend,
and we have written stories
about what makes good
friends. We sure are happy to
have them. We've also been
learning about the plant
kingdom in science. It has
been a very fun week. Our
student of the week is Ricky
Brown. Ricky loves to read
and tell jokes. He is very
helpful to all his friends. He
loves his family and always
has a great story to tell.
Thanks for being such a good
friend, Ricky.

derstand all about these tests
of reading. The Reading
Coach at South Hamilton,
Mrs. Joan Radford, will be
happy to meet with you and

to hearing from you.

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up their sleeves and go to work to
restore power interrupted by the sorm's fury.

Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in additional employees %
to respond to customer calls during /
major storms, and it has dramatically .
increased the number of incoming
telephone lines for its outage- d
reporting system. But customers may 1 A
experience busy signals and longer- d j
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes. 4

Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
* If someone in your home is dependent on medical equipment
requiring electricity, make arrangements in advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines.
* Plug only individual appliances into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
electrical system.


*To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use It in well-
ventilated areas and only plug in individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home or building's
electrical system since that can cause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-threatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running it for only a few hours at a time.
* Prepare a list of essential items you would need In case you are
evacuated from your home and have them readily available. Some of
these items could Include medications, insulin, contact
lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs.
If your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting it to SVEC office In order to give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.


* If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation,
register in advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
Management in your county, weather updates and information from SVEC.

They say that knowledge is
power. Yet knowledge can
make your life better, or it can
make it worse.
That's what constantly goeson
through the mind of mother
Allison Moore who suffers
from the inherited neurological
disorder Charcot-Marie-Tooth
disease (CMT). This non-
contagious disease causes loss
of muscle strength in various
parts ofthe body. Her two
children 7-year-old
Christopher and 4-year-old
Thomas could be carriers of
the disease, which can be
diagnosed through a simple
genetic blood test. And since
CMT can be brought on by
certain medications and
antibiotics, knowing that her
children are carriers can help
prevent the onset of symptoms.
This knowledge could also
bring on consequences such as
concern for the future. So the
New York City resident had
resolved not to test her
children for the disease.
But, that decision changed
recently when Christopher was Bill Watson suffers from the disease CMT. His Helios
hospitalized for dehydration. braces have helped improve his quality of life.
Doctors were going to
administer a drug to
Christopher to help him get better, but Moore knew that some medications could trigger
symptoms of CMT (Moore's CMT was triggered by medication). She questioned the doctor.
about the medication and he said he didn't know if it would bring on the CMT. So Moore
told the doctor not to give Christopher the medicine.
Moore doesn't want to have to wonder or question whether every drug her child takes
Might bring on CMT. So, she has had her son tested for CMT and is awaiting the results.
CMT SYMPTOMS
CMT affects millions of people worldwide. It was discovered by three doctors, Jean
Charcot, Pierre Marie, and Howard Tooth, in the late 1800s hence its name. To date,
there is no known cure or treatment.
Symptoms of CMT vary, as do their levels of severity. The legs and feet are affected first,
causing difficulty in walking, which is why CMT sufferers usually wear AFOs (ankle-foot
orthosis) or braces. Without these devices, a person with CMT has difficulty walking and
often trips. To avoid tripping, one with CMT usually has to lift his foot by using his knee.
and has to walk very slow. But walking this way puts stress on the knee and ankle, causing
frequent ankle sprains. Over time, normal knee reflex motion is lost, and nerve damage
causes burning and/or stabbing pains and cramping in the legs. Walking, standing and
equilibrium things the average person takes for granted- are challenging for CMT
sufferers.
Those with CMT can find help through the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation (HNF),
which was founded by Moore. This nonprofit foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for
CMT, while providing support and services for those living with the disease and their
families.
BETTER ORTHOTICS
HNF also helps CMT patients find proper treatment and orthotics to make their walking
easier and more productive. They have consulted with Ortho Rehab Designs, a clinical and
orthotic prosthetic practice specializing in CMT treatments, which has designed the new
state-of-the-art brace called HeliosTM. Available only in Las Vegas, the brace is
comfortable and wearable, credited to its combination of carbon graphite with a custom-
designed footplate that seeks to correct deformities, restore balance and return energy to the
Wearer.
"The primary goal of any orthosis is to prevent any further deformity," says Mitch
Warner, president of Ortho Rehab Designs, and orthotics wearer since age one. "Once this is
achieved, new alignment can be put in place, and better balance develops, resulting in
increased walking speed."
And CMT sufferer Bill Watson of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, is living proof that the Helios
brace works wonders. Watson has had CMT since he was an adolescent but was raised as if
he never had the disability. As.such, he didn't wear orthotics until he was fitted with the
Helios brace this past January at age 43.
"What a difference this brace has made in my life!" Watson says. "I used to have to look
down when I walked because I .couldn't walk heel to toe. Now I can walk upright which has
greatly improved my posture." Since wearing the brace, Watson says he has the ability to
walk faster and stand on his'own, his balance has greatly improved, and his energy levels
have increased.
"I didn't realize how fatiguing it was to walk without these braces," Watson adds. "I
encourage anyone with CMT to get them." He says they are light, comfortable, and easy to
put on and take off. "They are a miracle," he says.
To get fitted properly for a brace, Warner suggests finding a board certified orthotics
specialist who frequently works with CMT patients. A good orthotist will work with your
physician or physical therapist to ascertain your muscle strengths and physical condition
which will help in the design of your orthosis, he says. With CMT cases ranging from mild
to severe, Warner says that you need to find a practitioner who approaches each case
individually. He or she should also be willing
and able to design an orthotic device for your
specific needs..

Dear Classified Guys,
Would you want to know if your late
husband had received love letters from
another woman? I don't know if I
would. About a month ago I found
some letters in a cedar chest I bought
through the classified. The seller was
a charming older woman who told me
that the chest belonged to her late hus-
band. When I brought it home, I discov-
ered a hidden drawer in the bottom. I
assume she didn't know it was there
because neatly tucked inside was a
stack of love letters addressed to her
husband. I was all set to call her when I
realized the name on the
envelopes wasn't the woman .
I just bought the trunk from.
I've been agonizing over this 1 7'
for weeks and still don't know
what to do. What if she didn't
know about her husband's affair?
Would returning the letters be a tender
reminder of her husband or cause a lot
of unanswered questions?

Carry: That's quite a find you have. I
can honestly say that the only love letters I
receive from my wife usually have a "to
do" list enclosed.,
Cash: I have a feeling these letters are
a little more romantic than that. But your
question raises a great moral dilemma.


SimiE






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


WI 9/4/05
@2005 The Classified Guys


Do you return the letters and risk the
chance of raising questions or just throw
them away and move on.
Carry: You should first realize that you
have jumped to a lot of conclusions. By
finding a few letters in an old trunk, you
created an entire soap opera around this
woman's life. There could be many sce-
narios other than her husband having an
affair. The letters could be from a beloved
friend, previous marriage, or some other
harmless situation.
Cash: However, you may want to
refrain from reading the letters. I can only
imagine it would further confuse your
decision of what to do.


Carry: Cash and I have different per-
spectives on your find. Since the letters
were included with the sale, I may lean
toward just discarding them.
Cash: However, I would take the time
to mail them back to the seller with a little
note explaining where I found them.
They are of no real value to you, but they
could be significant memories for her.
Maybe she simply forgot the letters were
there.
Carry: As you can tell, there's really no
right or wrong answer to your question.
Regardless of what you decide, it could
make a great episode for "Days of Our
Lives."


The Lost Art
When is the last time you received a
personal letter in the mail? Today's cell
phones, email and text messaging make
the fine art of letter writing almost
extinct. It's much easier to pick up the
telephone or drop an email rather than
record your thoughts on paper. It was
only a few decades ago when letter writ-
ing was a primary method of communi-
cating with loved ones. Now the only
letters we receive are from our credit
card companies. However, there's noth-
ing tantalizing about a letter that starts,
"Dear Consumer".
Buried Treasure
Everyone loves to feel like a treasure
hunter whether it's finding some old let-
ters or combing the ocean for lost treas-
ure. But, you don't have to discover the
Titanic to be successful at it. A weekend
at a few yard sales has turned up valuable
lost paintings, jewelry and many other
items. Old battlefields of the civil war.
have been searched with metal detectors
looking for remnants of the past.
However you choose to do it, join the
millions who enjoy the thrill of treasure
hunting. .
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.


Go to Your Room
I know things have changed since
I was young, but I've tried to keep
one tradition alive.
If I broke a rule as a child, my
mother would make me write her a
one-page apology letter to make me
contemplate what I did wrong.
It worked so well that I tried it
with my son when he misused the
cell phone we gave him for emer-
gencies. I sent him to his room and
told him to not come out until he
wrote me an apology.
I realized how much things have
changed when my cell phone rang a
few minutes later. It was a text mes-
sage that said, "Sorry Mom!"
(Thanks to Regina 0.)
