Alex Brown honored during homecoming game


Alex Brown returned to his old stomping grounds for the Hamilton County Trojans' homecoming
game on Sept. 30. During the half-time show, the Trojans presented Brown with an oversize jersey
with his retired number, 3, in honor of his professional football career. Brown, who plays for the
Chicago Bears, continues to support his home team and school. ROTC Col. Davis presented
Brown with a poster-size picture of Brown in his cadet uniform in recognition of his involvement in
the program and his accomplishments in his career. (Photo by Susan Goodin)

Rabies Alert!


Rabid fox is


found in Jasper
The Hamilton County Health Department has issued a rabies alert. On
Sept. 27, Billy Tanner, the Animal Control Officer of the City of Jasper, deliv-
ered a dead fox to the health department. The fox had been found in the area
of Park Street in Jasper and was suspected of attacking a dog in the area. A
specimen from the fox tested

tory in Jacksonville.
The health department recommends that residents carefully observe their
pets, which may have come in contact with the rabid fox.
Animal contact, such as bites and scratches, with infected animals may lead
to exposure to rabies. Rabid animals can transmit the virus for a number of

EDUCATION

Johnny Bullard named


Director of Operations

Long-time educator

takes administrative role
When Ronald Hobbs retired in September, Hamilton County Superinten-
dent of Schools Harry Pennington knew that it would be hard to find some-
one with the vast amount of educational and administrational skills needed
to replace him. Hobbs had served as assistant superintendent of schools for
the last 12 years. During his 34 years with the school system, he also taught
agricultural education at the high school and
served as principal at Central Hamilton Ele-
mentary and North Hamilton Elementary.
But Penniington chose another veteran, of
the school system one that is familiar to
the whole county Johnny Bullard of White
Springs. Although the job title was changed
to Director of Operations, the position re-
quires someone who is dedicated to the

Johnny Bullard, former
principal of South
Hamilton Elementary,
is the new Director of
Operations for Hamilton
County schools. He
began his new
position on Sept. 29
and is enjoying his
new duties, which
include overseeing
personnel,
resources,
risk-
management
nd maintenance.

school system and who is ready
to shoulder many areas of responsibility.
With over 20 years of experience in both teaching and ad-
ministrative positions, Bullard seems to be the perfect replacement for
Hobbs.
Bullard began his career in 1981 as a kindergarten teacher at Central
Hamilton Elementary (CHE) in Jasper. The next year he transferred to South
Hamilton Elementary (SHE) in White Springs, where he taught seventh and
eighth grade math and science.
In 1987, Bullard became the principal of SHE. During his sixyears over the
school, he established the Juinior Beta Club and the Kiwanis Builders Club.
Because of his love of reading, he helped students improve their reading
scores through motivational programs and incentives.

Kendrick, Argenziano listen to Residents' concerns


Rep. Will Kendrickand Sen. Nancy Argenziano
met with local government officials and other citi-
zens during a public meeting on Sept. 28. As
members of the Hamilton County Legislative Del-
egation, they are committed to carrying the con-
cerns of the residents of the county to the legisla-
ture in Tallahassee.
(Staff Photo)


All of you are
always trying to
help yourself. Your
county does more
with less money
than any other
county in the
district. We can't
do our job without
your input.
Sen. Argenziano (R)

Hamilton
County is good to
work with and we
appreciate all the
support from the
businesses, the
agricultural field
and the
educational field.
Rep. Kendrick (D)


Several local government offi-
cials and concerned citizens ap-
peared at the Hamilton County
Legislative Delegation public
meeting on Sept. 29. Rep. Will S.
Kendrick (D) and Sen. Nancy Ar-
genziano (R) of the delegation
listened and made copious notes
as the attendees made various
requests for assistance and fund-
ing.
Bob Clark from the Pharmacy
Assistance office e\pre-ssed his
concern that the Department of
Children and Families (DCF)
had closed the office in Jasper.
With no DCF representative
available, the most needy citi-
zens of the county children and
seniors have to travel to Live
Oak to apply for the benefits to
which they are entitled.
A recurring theme throughout
the meeting was the request for a
Veterans' Memorial Park. Ac-
cording to Herbert Lumpkin,
Hamilton County Veteran's Ser-
vice Officer, the county is the
home of more servicemen per
capital than any other county in
Florida. He made the initial re-
quest for the park and submitted


a preliminary drawing of the
proposed design. The park
would be located at the old
Hamilton County High School,
which has been conveyed to the
county b\ the school system. He
requested a grant in the amount
of $25.0,000 for the park. Both the
representative and the senator
agreed to support the grant re-
que-t.
Lamar Royal, VFW Post Com-
mander, stated that Hamilton
County is one of the few counties
in Florida that has not given vet-
erans the recognition they de-
serve. He expressed the hope
that the park would not only
benefit the local community, but
that it would also attract tourists
traveling on 1-75. He suggested
that the POW (Prisoner Of War)
flag be flown at the new Florida
Welcome Center located on 1-75
south. He also asked that the
landscaping along 1-75 from the
Florida- Georgia state line to the
Welcome Center be extended to
the Jennings exit, and that the
section from the state line to Jen-

nings be designated as the
Veterans' Memorial High-
way. According to Rep.
Kendrick there should not
be a problem with the Wel-
come Center displaying
the POW flag. However,
the landscaping and subse-
quent naming of the high-
way would have to be fur-
ther investigated.
Clerk of Court Greg
Godwin presented several
concerns about the opera-
tion of his office, including
funding, simplifying the
budget and privacy issues.
He also expressed ap-
proval for the veterans'
park. He pointed out that
on Memorial Day or Veter-
ans' Day, the roads around
the courthouse had to be
closed to provide an area
for the ceremonies. The
representative and the sen-
ator both agreed to contin-
ue to support the county in
any way that they could.
Ronnie Morgan, chair-
man of the Hamilton


County Board of Commis-
sioners, requested funding
for the addition of sewer
and water capabilities in
the area of the 1-75 and
Hwy. 6 interchange. The
improvements would al-
low the current businesses
to expand and also induce
new businesses to locate in
the county. The board has
been considering three op-
tions for the project. If the
water and sewer lines are
connected to the City of
Jasper's system, the lines
will have to cross the Ala-
paha River, which could
cause environmental prob-
lems. The City of Jennings'
system would need up-
grading before any new
lines could be connected to
it. So at this time, it ap-
pears that the most feasible
and economical solution
would be to build a new
sewer and water facility at
the interchange. Morgan
added that without the
representative's and the
senator's help, a lot of the
services in the county


would be lacking.
Hamilton County Coor-
dinator Bob Poor ex-
pressed his appreciation to
Rep. Kendrick and Sen. Ar-
genziano for their assis-
tance with a Small Court-
house grant. The county
will receive $250,000 to be
used to make modifica-
tions that meet the Ameri-
can Disabilities Act and to
improve security at the
courthouse. The money
may also be used for reno-
vations at the old high
school, which will then be
used for government of-
fices and possibly drug
court counseling sessions.
Poor stated that the county
needed another $500,000 to
complete the needed im-
provements.
Superintendent of
Schools Harry Pennington
shared his concerns about
the teacher shortage as well
as the need for more fund-
ing and more flexibility in
spending those funds. He
informed the group that
the school system has ap-


plied for a grant for im- come to the area. She also

the water and sewer system
of White Springs had re-
cently been updated
through the cooperation of
the town, the county, the
Suwannee River Water
Management District and
the Community Develop-
ment Block Grant.
Townsend pointed out that
when south Florida is evac-
uated due to hurricanes,
many people stop in White
Springs because of its prox-
imity to 1-10 and 1-75. He
noted that the town has
considered using the gym-
nasium at South Hamilton
Elementary School as an
emergency shelter, but that
it would need extensive
renovations to provide ade-
quate and safe accommoda-
tions. He also pointed out
the need for more economic
development to stimulate
growth and income for the
town.
Ralph Hardwick, Vice-
Mayor of White Springs,
and Bullard updated the
representative and the sena-
tor on the grant request for
the renovation of SHE. The
monies would be used to
re-roof the building, repair
the auditorium and exterior
woodwork, replace win-
dows and paint the build-
ing. Bullard reminded them
that the school is actually
used by children, while oth-
er buildings that are eligible
for the grant are not being
used.
As the meeting ended,
Sen. Argenziano said, "All
of you are always trying to
help yourself. Your county
does more with less money

Local National Guard units help high school


football team recover from Hurricane Katrina


By Spc. Edouard H.R. Gluck,
107th MPAD and
Staff Sgt. Bill Nicholls, 202nd
RED HORSE Squadron
The Florida National
Guard scored a touchdown
for local and troop morale
recently in southern Missis-
sippi. Soldiers and Airmen
didn't don helmets or pads
though, but were very
much a part of a high
school football game in an
area devastated by Hurri-
cane Katrina.
Members of the 146th Sig-
nal Battalion (Pensacola),
269th Engineers (Live Oak),
and 202nd RED HORSE
Squadron (Camp Blanding)
who were deployed to the
area in support of hurricane.
relief operations, helped the
Bay St. Louis High School
football team play a memo-
rable game. From clearing
debris from the field and
correcting the goalposts, to


providing a flag detail and
chain crew, the game was
going to happen and what
a game it would turn out
to be.
For the Bay St. Louis
High School Tigers return-
ing to the gridiron for the
first time since the devas-
tating effects of Hurricane
Katrina, the game was
about pride, resurrection,
and hope. Nearly half of
their varsity team's starting
roster was devastated be-
cause of students who lost
homes and left town. Be-
cause of this the Tigers
were forced to play offense
and defense with the same
players against the Long
Beach Bearcats, who had a
full roster of 53.
The evening started with
the raising of the flag by
the 146th, and National
Anthem. A deep strike ear-
ly on by Tigers Quarter-


back Tyler Brush to Wide
Receiver and Defensive
Back Robert Labat put
them on the board with
only three minutes ex-
pended of the first quarter.
That was only the begin-
ning of the excitement:
from blocked kicks, to
fumble recoveries, the
Tigers were in control of
their domain. In a nail bit-
ing fourth quarter stance,
reminiscent of the great
highlight reels of nightly
sports broadcasts, The Bay
High Tigers beat the Long
Beach Bearcats 21-19. Al-
though their scoreboard
was blown away by the
storm, the resilience of the
Tigers was not.
Senior Airman William
Powell of the 202nd was
one of the Guardsmen who
assisted school officials
during the game. "It was a
blast," he said. "We went


out there to the high school
and ran the chains for the
first down, and watched
the kids play ball. It was
awesome."
The eye of Hurricane Ka-
trina came ashore in Bay
St. Louis on Aug. 29. Bay
High School Principal
Marca Boyer said the Flori-
da National Guard played
a major role in getting her
school reopened.
"We're moving forward
with getting our district
back together," Boyer said.
"We are targeting going
back to school Nov. 1. It's
just amazing. The first time
I came by, there was a
tremendous amount of de-
bris that's all been
cleaned up. They've gone
in, -dried out our building,
they've worked and
cleaned everything up.
They've done just a re-
markable job."

Signs and symptoms of rabies


The rabies virus grows in
muscle tissue and may go un-
detected for several days or
months, during which the an-
imal appears healthy and
shows no sign of infection.
The : Virus migrates to the
nerves near the site of the in-
fection and spreads to the
spinal cord and brain (i.e., the
central nervous system). The
spread of the infection may
take from 12 to 180 days, but
then the disease progresses
rapidly, and the animal be-
gins to show the behavioral
signs of rabies.


The early symptoms of ra-
bies tend to be subtle, last two
to three days, and may in-
clude:
Change in tone of the dog's
bark;
Chewing at the bite site;
Fever; and
Loss of appetite.
Pet owners should be
aware that behavioral
changes can occur as a result
of many conditions, from di-
gestive disorders to poison-
ing.
Not all rabid animals expe-
rience the second phase of in-

days before the onset of
symptoms, as well as while
clinically ill.
Rabies is always fatal
when untreated. Humans
who have been bitten or
scratched by a rabid animal
must undergo a series of
shots to prevent infection
from rabies.
Unvaccinated animals
that come into contact with a
rabid animal must be quar-
antined for a period of six
months with no human or
animal contact or must be
destroyed.
Hamilton County Health
Department Environment
Health Director Ron Taylor
stated, "The Department of
Health State Health Pro-
gram Office urges every cat


and dog owner to have all of
their animals vaccinated and
to keep vaccinations up-to-
date. Vaccination of all cats
and dogs is now required by
state law and is the first line
of defense against human
infection."
"Anyone coming in con-
tact with an animal they sus-
pect to be rabid should
avoid it and don't try to be-
friend the animal," Taylor
warned. "Avoid touching
an injured animal with bare
hands, but always use
gloves or wrap the animal in
a towel or blanket, taking
care to avoid contact with
blood or saliva."
Anyone who finds an ani-
mal suspected of having ra-
bies should contact the
health department at 386-
792-1414.

two to four days. An infected
dog may viciously attack any
moving object, person, or ani-
mal; a caged rabid dog will
chew the wire, break their
teeth, and try to bite a hand;
moving in front of the cage.
Rabid cats will attack sudden-
ly, biting and scratching. Fox-
es will invade yards and at-
tack dogs, cows, and porcu-
pines.
Rabid animals may show
the following signs:
Craving to eat anything, in-
cluding inedible objects;
Constant growling and
barking;
Dilated pupils;
Disorientation;
Erratic behavior;
Irritability, episodes of ag-
gression;
Facial expression showing
anxiety and hyper-alertness;
No fear of natural enemies


(e.g., wild animals may not be
afraid of people)
Restlessness, roaming; and
Seizures, trembling and
muscle un-coordination.
The third and final phase of
infection usually lasts for two
to four days. Initial symptoms
include the following:
Appearance of choking;
Dropping of the lower jaw
(in dogs);
Inability to swallow, lead-
ing to drooling and foaming
of saliva (i.e., "foaming at the
mouth"); and
Paralysis of jaw, throat, and
chewing muscles.
Paralysis then spreads to
other parts of the body, the
animal becomes depressed,
rapidly enters a coma and
dies.
Once the animal shows
signs of paralysis, the disease
progresses very quickly and
the animal dies.

America Recycles Day contest
encourages students to recycle


In recognition of the 9th
America Recycles Day on
Nov. 15, the Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) and Creative Recy-
cling Systems, Inc., are an-
nouncing the start of the an-
nual Florida Schools Recy-
cling Pledge Card Contest.
The contest will reward one
class statewide at the elemen-
tary, middle and high school
levels who submit the great-
est number of recycling
pledge cards, to encourage
environmental stewardship
among sttidents and their
families.
"Recycling is vital to con-
serving our natural resources
and protecting our environ-
ment," said Allan Bedwell,
DEP Deputy Secretary for
Regulatory Programs and
Energy. "This contest encour-
ages Florida's youth to
demonstrate environmental
citizenship at school and at
home."

By taking the recycling
pledge, individuals promise
to protect the environment
through recycling efforts. The
class at each level with the
most number of pledges will
receive prizes for their efforts,
including a gently used desk-
top computer and monitor
courtesy of Creative Recy-
cling Systems, Inc. In addi-
tion, each individual that
completes a pledge card will


be entered into state and na-
tional drawings for further
prizes. Adults will have a
chance to win a new Ford Es-
cape Hybrid SUV and chil-
dren under age 18 will be eli-
gible to win one of five Trek
bicycles.
In 2004, more than 7,500
pledge cards were entered
through the Florida schools
contest. Overall, more than
50,000 pledges were re-


ceived statewide. National-
ly, nearly one million Amer-
icans took the America Recy-
cles Day pledge to prevent
pollution and reduce waste
in 2004.

test, prizes and official

Medicare drug plans information available


The new Medicare Pre-
scription Drug Benefit, Part
D, plans are now available.
Companies offering the
plans are now able to adver-
tise them. Many companies
are offering far more benefits
than those required by law.
Lower deductibles and co-
payments are among the fea-
tures being touted by the
companies.
Price is also a selling point.
The current lowest price for
Florida residents, as low as
$10.35 per month, makes it
affordable for everyone on
Medicare. Persons with in-
comes under $14,355 (single)
or $19,245 (couple) can re-
ceive help in paying the pre-
mium and qualify for lower
or no deductibles.
People with Medicare are
warned that they may be so-
licited on the telephone by
salespeople for Part D. They
are cautioned not to give the
caller any information, such
as social security numbers or


credit card numbers, over the
phone. Persons living in
Florida are also cautioned
that they should not buy Part
D in Georgia. It may not cov-
er drugs bought in Florida.
They should also be sure the
pharmacy that they use is
covered by the plan.
The Hamilton County
Pharmacy Program (HCRX-
PAP) is funded by a grant
from The Blue Foundation
for a Healthy Florida, Inc.
The program provides free
assistance with the applica-
tion process for reduced-
price or free prescription
medications.
Some pharmaceutical com-
panies will supply their
drugs that are not on the ap-
proved list to low-income
consumers and Medicaid re-
cipients. Discount cards and
low-cost pricing on generic
medicines through mail or-
der are also available.
To apply for assistance,
take prescriptions, Medicare


cards, other insurance cards,
identification and verifica-
tion of income to the office.
The application process usu-
ally takes four to six weeks
before the medication is re-
ceived. Those applying
should be prepared to buy
the medicine or ask their doc-
tor for samples until they be-
gin receiving it in the mail.
The program, in coordina-
tion with the SHINE pro-
gram, has the latest informa-
tion on the Medicare drug
program. Both programs are
located in the Sandlin Build-
ing at 204 NE 1st St. in Jasper.
They are open Monday,
Wednesday and Friday from
8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and
Thursday from 1 p.m until 4
p.m. A representative is in
the White Springs Library on
the first and third Thursday
each month from 9:30 a.m.
until 11:30 a.m.
Appointments are not
need. For more information
call 792-2143.

Bullard


Continued From Page 1A

Bullard then transferred
to CHE as principal in
1993. He established the
first full-service school fa-
cility and after-school pro-
gram for Hamilton County
in 1994. He served as prin-
cipal of CHE for five years
and then in 1998, he be-
came assistant principal
and curriculum coordina-
tor at Suwannee Elemen-
tary East School in Live
Oak.
In 1999, Bullard moved
up to principal of Suwan-
nee Elementary East
School. Again, he used mo-
tivational programs and in-
centives to help students
improve their reading
scores. He also implement-
ed the "Florida Reading
Initiative" in 2001.
Then in 2003, Bullard re-
turned to the ,Hamilton
County school system as
principal of SHE. During
his first year there, the
school received an "A"
grade and received the
Florida School Recognition
Award.
At the Hamilton County
Legislative Delegation
public meeting on Sept. 29,
Pennington introduced
Bullard to Rep. Will S.
Kendrick (D) and Sen.
Nancy Argenziano (R).


"This is Mr. Bullard's first
day on the job, but I know
he will be a definite asset to
the schools," he said.
Rep. Kendrick respond-
ed that he had known
Bullard for many years. "I
think he is a fine choice for
the job and it is a well-de-
served promotion," he
added.
According to Bullard he
is excited about his new
position. "It certainly is a
change from being a princi-
pal," he said. "This posi-
tion will enable me to learn
about education at the dis-
trict level."
As Director of Opera-
tions, Bullard oversees per-
sonnel, human resources,
risk-management and
maintenance. He said that
he is thankful for the
knowledgeable adminis-
trative -assistants who will
be helping him in his new
position Coretha Lump-
kin, Kim Fenneman and
Judy Cannady. He also ap-
preciates the maintenance
staff: Colin Brinkley, Jack
Alford and Dennis Norris.
Although he is still un-
packing boxes and getting
settled into his new office,
Bullard is already busy
with paperwork and meet-
ings. To contact him with
any questions or com-
ments, call 386-792-6572.

TOOTIN' THEIR HORNS














Friendly courteous helpful ... All these describe the staff of the Hamilton County Tax
Collectors Office. Now add "proud," and rightfully so. They have won their first award -
they demonstrated the second largest growth in agricultural tag sales in 2004. Alison
Creech attended the Florida Tax Collector's Fall Conference in Amelia Island, and re-
turned with a large gift basket filled with, appropriately enough, Florida agricultural
r,;',,&.ucts "I am so proud of my staff and we are all thrilled to win this award," Tax Col-
lector Norma Cook said. According to Cook, it is difficult for rural offices to compete with
)a .'cs in the volume of sales generated each year, so the agency added some new
-.'tces to allow the rural offices an opportunity to win awards. The proceeds from
the satle ofag tags are used to promote Florida agriculture in the classrooms. Ag tags
cost an e\tra $32 initially, and an extra $22 yearly thereafter. Shown I-r: Veronica Land,

AARP helps sort out the facts about new

Medicare prescription drug coverage


The most important task
for \i,.,:- ,.- lcn.Tii.iariet
this fall is the selection of a
Met'i, ai e D provider. Begin-
ning in January 2006,
Medicare Part D will begin to
pay part of the cost of pre-
scription drugs helping to
provide affordable and sus-
tainable access to medica-
tions for Medicare beneficia-
ries. The new benefit is vol-
untary; however, Medicare
beneficiaries must enroll in
order to participate in one of
the private plans approved
by Medicare.
It is important for con-
sumers to have the tools and
the right information to
make informed decisions. To
help the public navigate the
enrollment process, AARP is
providing a free guide, What
You Need to Know About
the New Medicare Prescrip-
tion Drug Coverage. The


publication will help educate
consumers about the
Medicare drug the Medicare
program and the decisions
they will need to make.
"One of the most impor-
tant roles AARP will play is
providing education to con-
sumers about the Medicare
prescription drug program.
The more informed you are,
the wiser your decision,"
said Florida AARP State
President, Judy Thames.
"Our role is to make sure our
members have accurate, un-
biased information to help
them make choices about this
new benefit."
Currently, 16 million
Medicare beneficiaries do
not have any prescription
drug coverage. Yet roughly
50 percent of older Ameri-
cans take four or more pre-
scription drugs per day.
ARRP believes the Medicare


prescription drug program is
an important step to provide
better access to affordable
prescription drugs for older
Americans and those with
disabilities. Individuals with
lower incomes, depending
upon the level of need, could
be eligible for reduced or
even zero premiums and de-
ductibles through this pro-
gram.
To obtain a copy of What
You Need to Know the New
Medicare Prescription Drug
Coverage contact AARP at 1-

website at www.aarp.org.

comprehensive information
to groups across the state. To

2B High School


Football


District 3
The Hamilton County
Trojans finished off
homecoming festivities
in grand style with a 25-
15 victory over the Bald-
win Indians.
Although the game
%was tiglt, on the scort-
board, the game was re-
ally never in doubt.
Lathaniel Sowell was
able to break loose on his
first couple of carries to
reach paydirt, and had it
not been for a couple of
untimely penalties,
would have had over 250
rushing yards. As it was,
he was able to produce
over 150 yards and
enough offense to lead
the Trojans to victory.
Coach Laing, the Tro-
jans defensive coordina-
tor, had a very impres-
sive game plan according
to head coach Corey
Green. The defense was
able to control the ball-
game behind the efforts
of Cam Cohen, who had
an interception, Chance
Windham and Desmond
Williams.

stats every week, you do

A note from the Hamilton County


Trojan Booster Club President:


Wow! Can you believe
it? The Trojans are 4 and 1
and ranked first in our dis-
trict. Coach Green must
not have gotten the mes-
sage that this was sup-
posed to be a rebuilding
year. We graduated a lot of
great athletes last year and
lost 2 good athletes to Live
Oak this year., At the start
of last season, we thought
we would have a chance to
have a state playoff year
which unfortunately we
had a disappointing year
of 5 and5, with no play off
opportunity. I can't believe
in just 10 weeks Coach
Green has taught our team


a new defense and offense.
But more important, he has
taught our kids to believe
in each other and his sys-
tem. I've been fortunate to
be on the side line with
Coach Green and his staff
to witness the intense calm
that Cory has with his
team when our guys make
mistakes. He corrects them
and moves on. He's the
kind of coach I think every
one would want their kid
to play for. The players tell
me they are working hard-
er than ever but its fun.
In closing, I would like
to thank the fans and our
booster club members. To


date this year we've spent
approximately $16,000 on
the team. We've taken 14
kids to FSU games and we
are planning on taking 10-
15 players to a Georgia
Tech game later this year.
And we plan on taking the
rest of the players to a Val-
dosta State game. I believe
these games give our kids
exposure to great players
and make them want to be
their best and possibly
even give them hope to go
on to the next level. In clos-
ing, if you would like to
join the booster club,
please call Randy McCoy
at 386-792-1685.

At this writ- I i
ing, "the tem- W hi1
peratures dur-
irig the day-
time feel more
like the middle
of summer
than the begin-
ning of fall, .
but, in north
Florida, we
can expect
these kinds of tempera-
tures until after Thanks-
giving. In last week's col-
umn, I wrote about our
seasonal visitor from the
insect kingdom, the
"Love bug." In the Sun-
day, Oct. 2 edition of the
Lake City Reporter, there
was a big article about
them.
I was wrong in my
statement about birds not
liking the taste of the
"Love bug." According to
their article, and it was
done by some entomolo-
gist (that is a fancy name
for insect specialist),
quail, sparrows and other
foraging birds love the
taste of love bugs. No
matter what bird or birds
enjoy them, there are
more, love bugs than
birds. One other -thing,
the love bug is attracted
to gasoline and diesel
fumes an explanation
for why there are so many
on the grill and wind-
shield of your vehicle.
First Baptist Church of
White Springs, will cele-
brate its 107th Homecom-
ing on Sunday, Oct. 9, be-
ginning at 10:30 a.m. The
special speaker for the
morning is Rev.' Avery
Kelly. There will be no
Sunday School held on
this day. The special mu-
sic during the service will
be provided by the
church choir under the
direction of David Brant-
ley. A covered dish lun-
cheon will be served in
the fellowship hall fol-
lowing, the morning wor-
ship service. The public is
invited.
A reception celebrating
the premiere of a televi-
sion program about the
Florida Folk Festival will
be held at the park ser-
vice administration
building on Thursday,
Oct. 6, from 6 p.m. till 8
p.m. The reception is
sponsored by the Stephen
Foster Citizens Support
Organization of White
Springs. Co-sponsors in-
clude: Ronsonet Buick of
Lake City, First Federal
Savings Bank of Florida
in Lake City, Jerry and
Lynnis Mincey of Winter
Haven, Ken and Nancy
Buchanan of Loxahatch-
ee, Cone Distributing of
Tallahassee, the Bullard
Family, Tracy and Woody
Woodard and Janet
Moses all of White
Springs. Dr. Don A. Thig-


pen of Daytona Beach,
was the producer of this
documentary, and it will
be shown on all Public
Television Stations
through the state of Flori-
da later in the fall. The re-
ception will be catered by
Jan Hunter and Rheba
Lee.
We appreciate the work
done by Barbara Roberts,
park manager of the
Stephen Foster Center
and all her staff in help-
ing with this event.
Thank you, Barbara, we
appreciate you. Special
thanks to our own Janet
Moses, for decorating our
reception area in such
fine style. God bless you
and thank you, Janet.
This is an invitation only
reception.
Rev. and Mrs. Ron
Thompson of White
Springs, are visitors this
week in North Carolina.
Ron is conducting a re-
vival there and Jeanie is
helping. They will also at-
tend a family reunion
while there. I know they
will have a wonderful
time and, hopefully, en-
joy some cooler weather.
The 55th annual Jeanie
Ball and Auditions will
be held at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Cen-
ter State Park on Friday,
Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct.
8. Sponsored by the Flori-
da Federation of Music
Clubs, female vocalists
between the ages of 18 -
22 compete for the title of
Jeanie with the Light
Brown Hair. Vocalists
sing one Stephen Foster
selection and one by an
American composer. Each
contestant must wear an
1854 style ball gown, rem-
iniscent of the Foster era.
Over $3000 in scholar-
ships are given at this an-
nual event, as Jeanie and
four Jeanie maids are se-
lected. This is not a beau-
ty contest; talent is what
wins. The event is semi-
formal and is opened to
the public. Please make
plans to attend. Admis-
sion to the auditions will
be standard park admis-
sion.

I wish all of these fine
folks many more happy

I have written accolades
in the column before, but
will write them again,
about the fine job done by
the Town of White
Springs, in clearing the
area that will become a
nature walk area. It will
be named in the memory
of the late John Graham. I
know when the project is
complete, there will be a
nice dedication ceremo-
ny. Thank you to the
Town Manager, Robert
Townsend, and to all of
the employees of the
Town of White Springs.

Quote for the week:
"Go give to the needy,
sweet charity's bread for
giving is living," the an-
gel said. But must I keep
giving again and again?
My peevish and pitiless
curt answer ran. "Oh,
no," said the angel, pierc-
ing me through. "Just
give till the Master stops
giving to you."
Have a good week
Hamilton County I love
you.

NEWS


By Cheryl McCall
Fifth grade students had
a special speaker, Nurse
Martha Fultz, who gave a
demonstration on the
proper procedure for ad-
ministering the Heimlich
maneuver.
Her demonstration in-
cluded a safety video also.
This was a great supple-
ment to the weekly reading
skill lesson, "Steps in a
Process."
Mrs. Parks' first graders
have been reading about
frogs. They had two stories
about frogs, one real and
one make-believe. The stu-
dents learned many frog
facts, made creative frogs,
sung frog songs, and read
other supplemental books
about frogs and toads.
They learned about the life
cycle of a frog and com-
pared it to humans. They
also did a comparison of
frogs and toads. They were
amazed to learn not all
frogs are the same, nor do
they make the same
sounds. This was a fun and


educational activity for
them in reading. They have
also been busy learning
subtraction strategies and
reviewing addition facts.
On Monday, Sept. 26,
Mrs. Carter's first graders
celebrated Johnny Apple-
seed's birthday. They read
several books about his life
and created apple stories.
They also did a Johnny Ap-
pleseed figure. They end-
ed the study by enjoying
some juicy red apples!
Kindergartners have
been busy studying LI, Oo,
and Gg in phonics. They
read the big books, "Look-
ing for Crabs," "On the
Go," and "Honk, Honk."
They've enjoyed treats of
Lays potato chips, lol-
lipops, Oreos, orange can-
dy & juice, goldfish crack-
ers, and gummies. A spe-
cial thanks to Brad, Bran-
don, Berry, and Tyler in
Mrs. Combass' room and
to Victoria, Gracie, Austin,
Dallas, and Jackson in Mrs.
McCall's room for sharing
treats. Thanks also to Javy


and Zachary for sharing
"The Lion King" movie.
Recently second grade
teacher, Erin Driggers, and
kindergarten teacher,
Cheryl McCall, attended
the Florida Elementary Ed-
ucation Conference in Or-
lando. They participated in
sessions on such important
topics as learning centers,
phonics, career education,
journal writing, parent
communication, storybook
strategies, and learning
styles. They also enjoyed
make and take activities
with the "bag ladies" and
hearing a great motivation-
al speaker, Dr. William
Purkey from the University
of North Carolina. The
theme of the conference
was "Speak to us of Chil-
dren."
Remember, Monday,
Oct. 10, is a school holiday.
Friday, Oct. 14, is an early
dismissal day for students
at 1 p.m., and an afternoon
workday for teachers.
Thanks to all parents for
helping your children with
our fall fund-raiser. Stu-
dents will be receiving
prizes for their sales.
Teachers especially appre-
ciate the PTO and all who
participate in this effort be-
cause a large portion goes
directly for classroom ex-
penditures. Working to-
gether like this is one way
we, at NHE, are "changing
lives through quality edu-
cation."


Enjoy Florida Greenways

and Trails during October


Encouraging Floridians
and visitors to head out-
doors with family and
friends, Governor Jeb
Bush declared October
"Florida Greenways and
Trails Month." Greenways
and trails provide recre-
ational opportunities, pro-
tect Florida's natural re-
sources, preserve histori-
cal and cultural sites and
connect communities.
More than 150 events
around Florida are
planned to celebrate Flori-
da Greenways and Trails
Month this year.'


Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP)
Secretary Colleen M.
Castille said, "Protecting
greenways and trails pro-
vides recreational and
economic opportunities
for communities, and pre-
serves diverse natural
habitats."
"By celebrating Green-
ways and Trails Month,
Florida is encouraging
outdoor recreation and
environmental steward-
ship for our citizens," said
DEP Office of Greenways
and Trails Director Jena B.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS PAGES 4C-5C


This is somewhat of a sad
article for me, as this is the
last article I will be typing
and assembling for South
Hamilton Elementary. I am
now Director of Operations
for the Hamilton County
School District, and my of-
fice is located at the Super-
intendent's office in Jasper.
My phone number is 792-
6572. Please come by and
visit with me any time or
give me a call. My heart
will always be with the stu-
dents, staff members, and
community at South
Hamilton, since I am a
White Springs native, born
and bred.
During the next couple of
weeks, the school will be in
the very able hands of
Dorothy L. Bryant, former
principal and longtime
teacher and guidance coun-
selor at South. Mrs. Bryant
shares my love of South
and all that it is. I can go to
the District office satisfied
that South is in good
hands. It has been a joy
serving South as principal
on two separate occasions.
Please keep me in your
thoughts and prayers. I will
be seeing you often.
Kindergarten has en-
joyed a great week of work-
ing with patterns in math.
Our reading story, "All I
Am," has helped us discov-
er what we can do what we
would like to do when we
grow up. Our color of the
week is "blue," and our
nursery rhyme of the week
is "Mary, Mary, Quite Con-
trary."
First grade is working on
subtraction in math this
week. Don't forget to be
practicing the math fact fam-
ilies at home with your child.


Second grade read the
story, "Two Mice" this
week. It is an old story that
contrasts the lifestyles of
different mice. We've be-
gun making dioramas for
them. There are so many
new concepts to learn in
Math this year. This week
we studied plane shapes
and solid figures.
Third grade has been
reading about different
weather phenomenon. Our
reading selection "Tornado
Alert" has taught us many
interesting things. We've
compared and contrasted
tornadoes and hurricanes.
We've reviewed our safety
procedures for both and
we've shared many stories.
We've also been focusing
on our writing skills. Our
student of the week is
Camelia Jones. Camelia is a
very serious student. She
enjoys reading, her friends,
and anything about cats.
We enjoy having Camelia
as our friend. Keep up the
good work!
On Thursday afternoon,
Mrs. Howell, Laura Byran,
Conner Hall, Briana Guz-
man, Evlee Peeler, Lonnie
Freeman, Damon Bryant,
and Dezmond Byrd had a
good time at Pizza Hut.
These students met their
reading goals for Septem-
ber and were treated to piz-
za by their. teachers.
Mrs. Howell's science
class completed the planti-
ng of our butterfly garden.
We had a great, although
dirty, time. We planted a
fire bush, lantana, butterfly
weed, butterfly bush, pen-
tas, and salvia. We have al-
ready observed giant sWal-
lowtail and sulfur butter-
flies visiting our plants.


Two eye-popping,

world-class golf courses.


One new luxurious hotel and spa
overlooking the Tennessee River.

All of this adds up to one more reason to
visit Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
Take on the Fighting Joe and the new
Schoolmaster courses at The Robert Trent

Jones Golf Trail at The Shoals. Then spend
your evening relaxing at the Marriott Shoals
Hotel and Spa, part of the Resort Division of
the Trail.

Our fourth grade student
of the week is Evlee Peeler.
Evlee's favorite subject is
Florida History. Evlee,
even though very soft spo-
ken, hopes to become a
teacher.
Mr. Daniels' fifth grade
class has been busily pur-
suing our many areas of
computer assisted instruc-
tion at South. We love
working with Compass
Odyssey, FCAT Explorer,
Accelerated Reader and
Accelerated Math. We are
wild about these many ex-
citing programs at South
Hamilton.
Mr. Corbett's sixth grade
class enjoyed a wonderful
week at South. They have
especially enjoyed the units
on Greece and Rome. We
are finishing up a unit of
decimals in Math.
In ESE, Ellen Gay wishes
to extend her thanks to
everyone at South Hamil-
ton for all their support.
Miss Gay is transferring to
Jasper, and she will be
moving up there on Mon-
day, Oct. 3. Farewell Miss
Gay, we will miss you at
South Hamilton. Miss Gay
has worked at South for
over 30 years.
Our PTO and SAC met

I......A.. OCTOBER.. 2


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Most of you have proba-
bly read at least one of the
"Chicken. Soup for the
Soul" books, well, I found
one, "Chicken Soup for
the Writer's Soul." The
first thing that really
struck me was a sentence
that read "Writing is like
sending coded messages
into space. You never
know if someone is out
there receiving."
Those of us who try to
communicate with you
through our news and our
feelings, sometimes won-
der who is or is not receiv-
ing. When just one of you
tells us that you read our
columns, it is reassuring.
It is to me and knowing
the others, it surely is to
each of them, so keep it
up.
It was brought to our at-
tention Sunday morning
that a request had been
made that the Presbyter-
ian Women might like to
host the Sisterhood next
week. Before we left the
sanctuary, it was unani-
mously decided that we
would be the hostesses for
this wonderful get-togeth-
er of women from
throughout the county.
We will take this opportu-
nity to invite you to be
with us on Tuesday, Oct.
11, at First Presbyterian
Church of Jasper. Please
come and bring someone,
a salad, sandwich or
dessert to share. We will
look forward to being to-
gether. All plans are not
completed so we cannot
tell you for sure what the
program will be. We will
try to make it a good one.
We will have a good
evening with much Chris-
tian fellowship and food.
It seems that working
with friends. regarding one
story sometimes leads to
others. When talking with
Evelyn and Emmett Math-
is we learned that they are
members of a' Cushman
Motor Scooter club that
travels each year to gath-
erings. They had just re-
turned from a group tour
to Hiawassee, Ga. (They
do not ride the scooters up
there.) They had traveled
with George and Ann Pe-
terson of Lake Park, Ga.
We have known George
and Ann for many years;
they were patients of
Wade and continue to be
patients of Ben. Ben is al-
ways interested in their
talk of antique cars and it
was interesting to know
that we have mutual
friends. If all of the people
they met are like these two
couples, we know they
have a wonderful time.
They had traveled one day
over to Franklin, up to
Highlands, from High-
lands down into Georgia
into Dillard, back to Hi-
awassee. What a great trip
that must have been. That
route is familiar to us and
many of you. They said
the scenery was beautiful.
Sunday, Sept. 25, was a
"Blessed Day" for me. Lin-
da Taylor called me that
morning inviting me to go
with her to a country
church for homecoming,
near White Springs. For
years I had heard of Swift
Creek Methodist Church


Homecomings, but had
never had the pleasure of
attending. She did not
know the name of the
Church, but she said
David and Marsha Barker
had asked her if she
would like to go. Well, of
course it sounded good to
me; I did not know until
we turned off US 41 where
we were going, but imme-
diately said, "That's Swift
Creek."
Having heard of Swift
Creek homecomings
through Ulma Braswell
and her family over the
years it sounded like a
great day to me and it
was. It was truly a blessed
day as was printed at the
bottom of the bulletin. At
the time usually consid-
ered Sunday School time,
10 a.m., there was a song
service, singing of the old
songs remembered from
childhood, with Beverly
Davis at the piano, singing
led by Bertha Jackson.
Johnny Bullard helped
with the singing, sang a
verse to "The Old Country
Church." The verse had
been written by Linda
Bullard Biggs, daughter of
Beverly Davis, to be sung
by Johnny at Swift Creek
Homecoming. Linda had
hoped to be present but
was unable to get here.
Linda and her husband,
son Sgt; and Sue Biggs,

' MainStreet Hamilton County News


By Brent Rumnyon, Director
My involvement with
MainStreet began in the
spring of 2005, when I
volunteered to help re-
store the Old Jennings
Bank. This is a gem of a
building for any small
town, but it had long been
neglected. I was happy to
learn that MainStreet had
secured funds from vari-
ous sources to put a new
roof on it, an essential
step in stabilizing the
building until more mon-
ey could be raised to com-
plete the restoration.
Since that initial contact
with MainStreet, I have
been a volunteer director,
working behind the
scenes.
Now that I am living
and working in Hamilton
County, I want to step up
to the plate and hit a
homerun for MainStreet.
The goals of the national
MainStreet organization


are mainly


to preserve


historic downtown build-
ings, help the economies
of downtown areas, and
generally create a better
downtown so that people
will enjoy spending time
there, rather than at a
strip mall near the inter-
state. It is these same
goals that we want to im-
plement in Hamilton
County.
I want to share with you
my background, so you'll
have a sense of who I am,
and my goals for Main-
Street, so you'll have a
sense of what I want to
help the organization
achieve. My family has
been business people,
farmers, and politicians in
North Hamilton for over
one hundred years. I grew
up in Jennings and at-
tended Georgia Tech,
earning an engineering
degree. I eventually real-
ized that my heart lay in
community planning and
historic preservation, so I


returned to school at UGA
to get a degree in Historic
Preservation.
Historic preservation
combines my interests:
environmentalism,
stronger communities,
better town planning, and
revitalized economies. I
believe that the Main-
Street organization is the
best to bring disparate
parts of the county to-
gether toward these com-
mon goals.
Over the next few
weeks, I hope to be able to
share how I think Main-
Street can bring about
positive change in all of
these ways. I also hope
that you will join me in
creating a brighter future
for Hamilton County,
Jasper, Jennings, and
White Springs.
These are some of my
goals for MainStreet
Hamilton County:
Develop restoration
plans for the historically


significant buildings in
each town. Create well-at-
tended festivals to raise
funds, bring people
downtown, and build
community spirit. Devel-
op Heritage Village into a
tourist attraction, a her-
itage education tool, and a
local gathering place.
Help create a business re-
cruitment plan for down-
town Jasper. Nominate
historic districts and
buildings in Jasper and
Jennings to the National
Register. Most important-
ly recruit a new board of
directors to replace those
who have served so well
and long, and build a
strong volunteer base.
Please share your ideas
and jump in and help in
every way that you can.
Call me at 938-2273 or 803-
920-7756 (cell) or email
brentrunyon@gmail.com
to volunteer or offer sug-
gestions. Together, we
will succeed!

Well folks, I can't have a
column unless you call
and give me your news.
Once again, call me at 938-
5516.
We're so glad to see Mr.
Howard Davine up and
around. He had heart
surgery Aug. 15, in
Gainesville. His children
came from different parts
of Florida to help him re-
cuperate. As I said, he
seems to be doing so
much better.
I left last week to head
south to visit friends in
Palatka. I stayed with Re-
nee Vaughn and checked
on her friends Nick and
Sheila Janette, of East
Palatka. Sheila had back
surgery and hasn't been
doing too well. My
prayers are with her. Then
I got up and headed for
Jacksonville where I
stayed at the beach and
visited with Shirley Peck,
the mother of a dear
friend who passed away. I
took her to dinner and we
had a very nice visit. I had
to leave because I had to
get back to work, but not
before enjoying the spa
and pool at the hotel. It
was very relaxing.
Sorry to hear that Eliza-
beth Johnson is in the hos-
pital in Gainesville. Her
son Danny reports that
they saw her and she
seems to be doing better
and may be out of the hos-
pital by the time you read
this. Let's keep her in our
prayers.
Andres Perez and wife,
Dede, from Tampa, came
to visit Mr. and Mis. Dan-
ny Johnson over the week-
end. Andres is the son of


Mrs. Susan Johnson.
Brother Stephen Haskell
and wife, Brenda, had the
youth class from Jennings
Missionary Baptist
Church at their home for a
cookout arid movies along
with games recently.
Those in attendance were
Stephen Haskell of Jasper,
Kaylan, Garrett and Gage
Stout, Haley Trouille of
Jennings, and Morgan
Mester of Statenville. They
said the food, fellowship
and games were great.
Mr. Vonne Prine and
Ms. Linda Law went on an
excursion with "The Old
Spokes Motorcycle Club"
from Valdosta, Ga. to
scenic places all over
Northwest Georgia. A
good time, was reported
by Ms. Law.
Ms. Law and her mom,
Anna Cameron are head-
ed to South Carolina to
visit relatives later this
month and to see the
changing of the leaves.
These relatives are Mom-
my Anna's sisters. Hope
you have a great time and
please have a safe trip.
Ms. Elizabeth Johnson
said all of her brothers
and sisters were in atten-
dance for the Homecom-
ing at Burnham Christian
Church last Sunday. Her
brothers, Kenneth Shiver
of Palatka, Ike Shiver of
Fernandina, Fla., Marion
Hudson of Lake City, Fla.
(mother of Becky Dea- of
Jennings), and
Ruth Lihdauer
of Valdosta, Ga. -
They reported the
service was excel- ,.j
lent and they had .
five baptisms.

The History of Goodwood
The history of Goodwood is a
history of the State of Florida.
From its initial construction in the
1840s, the gracious Main House
at Goodwood has had a succes-
sion of prominent owners signifi-
cant in Florida's political and so-
cial history. As vith many grand
homes, a touch of mystery and
some sadness have also been as-
sociated with Goodwood.
The estate known as Good-
wood was assembled in the early
1830s by Hardy Croom of North
Carolina. Hardy Croom had been
visiting Florida and developing
agricultural property as early as
the early 1820s. He was a widely
recognized figure in polite society
throughout the eastern seaboard
and was known for his special in-
terest in horticulture. He even dis-
covered at least two rare plants in
Florida-the Torreya Tree and
the Florida Yew.
Plans for a full-time Florida
residence were dashed when he,
his wife and all three of their chil-
dren perished in the sinking of the
steamship Home while en route
from New York to Charleston.
This shipwreck occurred when
the Home encountered one of the
first named hurricanes, Racer's
Storm, on Oct. 9, 1837, off the
coast of North Carolina at Cape
Hatteras. After learning of his
brother's death, Bryan Croom
immediately set about consolidat-
ing Hardy's finances and as-
sumed control of all of the Flori-
da property. Bryan rearranged his
own property holdings, moved to
the Goodwood estate, completed
the Main House and established it
as the centerpiece for his exten-
sive Florida landholdings.
The family of Bryan Croom's
deceased sister-in-law sued
Bryan for a portion of the estate
he inherited from his brother,
Hardy. A complicated case, it was
not settled for 20 years. In the fall
of 1857, Bryan Croom lost his
case and lost Goodwood. He and
his wife, Eveline, together with
her mother, Ann Hawks, moved

to Montgomery, Ala.
Immediately after settlement
of the lawsuit, Goodwood was
purchased by wealthy Arvah
Hopkins, who, together with his
family, made Goodwood a popu-
lar center for Tallahassee society
from the 1850s through the
1880s. Arvah Hopkins married
Susan Branch, the daughter of
John Branch. John Branch held a
number of prestigious offices in
Florida, North Carolina and in
Washington, D.C. His family
traveled in some of the finest so-
ciety of the mid-nineteenth cen-
tury and Susan was considered a
local belle. Through his marriage
and his acumen as a cotton factor,
Arvah became one of the wealth-
iest men in the state and by 1861
had the only telegraph line into
Tallahassee in his place of busi-
ness. According to local tradition,
the men of Tallahassee gathered
around the Hopkins telegraph set
for several days awaiting the
news of the firing on Fort
Sumter.
The Hopkins family lost one
young daughter to whooping
cough in 1863 and suffered the
losses of friends and family in the


war although none of their seven
sons were old enough to serve in
the military. Susan contributed to
the war effort by becoming an
active member of the Ladies Sol-
diers Friends Sewing Society and
military leaders were regularly
entertained at Goodwood. The
collapse of the Confederacy was
devastating to the Hopkins fami-
ly and Goodwood. Throughout
the 1860s and 1870s the Hopkins
worked to keep the plantation to-
gether. Ultimately, however, un-
able to keep her family's finances
afloat in the economic collapse
after the Civil War and after the
death of her husband, Mrs. Hop-
kins sold Goodwood in 1885 to a
mysterious Englishman, Dr.
'William Arrowsmith,. and his
wife. It is unknown how or why
the Arrowsmiths, with their Eu-
ropean background, selected
Goodwood. Dr. Arrowsmith died
within months of his relocation
to Goodwood, but Mrs. Eliza-
beth Arrowsmith remained on
the estate for another 25 years.
Like the Crooms and the Hop-
kins, the Arrowsmiths were
members of St. Johns Episcopal
Church and Mrs. Arrowsmith
was accepted into Tallahassee so-
ciety.

Suwannee Valley


Our help cometh from the Lord


I am sure many of you have watched in horror as
many cities and towns along the gulf coast turned into
what looks like a war zone, a place of mass destruction.
A major U.S. city, New Orleans, a place they called
"The Big Easy" become a watery grave for many, a city
of complete disaster, for this city to come back will be
anything but easy. So many people lost their lives, even
more lost their homes, businesses and all of their materi-
al possessions. They have gone through horrible days
and nights, many alone in the dark, maybe in an attic or
on a roof, or in a giant building with thousands of other
people still in the dark and heat with little or nothing to
eat or drink. I wonder how many of those people thought
to call on God to help them, to sustain them, to save
them from the horrible tragedy and hopefully to save
their very souls. I am sure their were quite a few people
pleading and begging God to help them, just as we saw
on the news there were many that got mad and yelled
and screamed in anger for help. Over and over I heard
the cries of people saying where' is our help, how are we
to survive, what do we do now, is there anyone to help
us? I say to them and to any of you who may be going
through your own storms, the "storms of life" your help
cometh from the Lord. The Bible tells us plainly in the
book of Psalms where our help comes from. Psalms
121:1-8 1 "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from
whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the
LORD, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suf-
fer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not
slumber. 4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep. 5 The LORD is thy keeper: the
LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall
not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The
LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall pre-
serve thy soul. 8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out
and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for
evermore."
You know what I mean by the "storms of life," sick-
ness, death, injury, financial troubles, family problems,
car trouble, depression, loneliness, frustration of too
much to do, days when nothing seems to go right, these
are some of the examples of storms we may encounter in
our lives. Do we remember where our help comes from
or do we'panic and let the enemy make things even
worse? As a Christian I would hope that we will remem-
ber to call on the Lord, to look up to Him, to trust in
Him to be our help, just as He promises. For someone
that is not a Christian, I would pray that they will realize
there is one God, the heavenly father, and He cares for
them, and call on Him to be their help in their time of
trouble. Ps 46:1 says "God is our refuge and strength, a
very present help in trouble."

During the first week of the news coverage of Hurri-
cane Katrina, I was blessed to be listening to the news
on CBN'S 700 Club. They had a lady named Greta as a
special guest from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands
giving advice and sharing her miraculous testimony to
people going through a horrible storm. She spoke of
how she had survived Hurricane Marilyn in 1995 on a
little island in her own home. Her restaurant and home
received no damage, while everything else around her
was destroyed. When asked how she was able to stay
there and survive such a storm she spoke very clearly
that she believes very firmly in the promises of God's
word, and as she always does, just trusted the Lord to
protect her, and she praised the Lord through the storm.
As Greta spoke, you knew she truly had a deep personal
relationship with the Lord. She told viewers that she be-
lieved God would spare her, but if He had not, it would
not have mattered, because if she had not lived, she
would receive her answer to prayer anyway, because if
she died she would be living with the father in heaven.
Greta really knows where her help comes from. God
chose to allow her to live, and that she does and does
well, her restaurant was the only one serving food to


anyone who was hungry right after the storm and stood
as a testimony to the miracle working hand of God
among the ruins around her.
You may not have been personally affected by Hurri-
cane Katrina, but all of us have storms in our life. Where
is your faith and trust? Do you remember that your help
cometh from the Lord? What would you do if you found
yourself in such a horrible circumstance? I say again,
would you remember that your help cometh from the
Lord? What will you do the next time a smaller, yet to
you just as important storm comes into your life? Where
will your help come from? Where is your help? Who is
your help? Do you remember to have faith no matter
how bad things may seem in your life at times? Remem-
ber, God will never forsake you. Talk to Him, ask Him
for his help, tell Him how you feel and what you need or
want. We will find Him Waiting for us to come to Him
in prayer. When we do, He will give us the very help we
need. We find that promise in God's Word in Hebrews
4:16 "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of
grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help
in time of need." Each and everyday remember where
your help comes from, your help cometh from the Lord!

their own to call home again.
In response to the desperate need to find temporary housing
for hurricane survivors like Jeanne, Samaritan's Purse is pro-
viding 100 new mobile homes to a network of 20 churches in
Shreveport, Louisiana. Several of these congregations already
have evacuee shelters set up in their church gymnasiums, and
these homes will enable them to transition displaced families
into accommodations with more space and privacy.
"This church has been great," Jeanne said. "We came here
with just the clothes on our backs, and they've made us feel
right at home."
Jeanne's family and several others from New Orleans arrived
at Shreveport's Morning Star Baptist Church two weeks ago.
They were warmly welcomed, clothed, fed and given a new air
mattress and bedding for their assigned spot on the gym floor.
Dr. Murphy Hunt is understandably proud of the congrega-
tion at Morning Star Baptist he has pastored for 23 years.
"We've taught on serving, and now we have a chance to actual-
ly get to work," declared Dr. Hunt.
"This church has been great," Jeanne said. "We came here
with just the clothes on our backs, and they've made us feel
right at home."
Doris Jones, another evacuee who found shelter at Morning
Star Baptist Church, will also take up residence in a mobile
home donated by Samaritan's Purse.
"We were evacuated from the roof of our home by a heli-
copter," Doris recalled of her family's harrowing escape from
New Orleans. "We were dropped off on a bridge and had to
sleep there that night. It was horrible."
After routing through Houston for a few nights, Doris and her
family arrived in Shreveport early one morning. "Pastor Hunt
was here to welcome us at 5 a.m.," Doris explained. "We would
be dead by now if no one had helped us. I thank them all for
helping."
Now the staff at Morning Star Baptist is preparing to move
Jeanne, Doris and their families into real homes-two of the
five new mobile homes Samaritan's Purse donated to the
church.
Last week they all accompanied Dr. Hunt and members of our
Samaritan's Purse team on a tour of a model of their new home.
After all they had been through the past two weeks, Jeanne
and Doris were visibly moved by the prospect of living in a real
home again.
Jeanne shared her excitement. "It's a beautiful home. I know
we'll feel at home here."

KIDS CORNER


By Aunt Pam
I am sure most of you kids have heard
about the horrible storm named Hurri-
cane Katrina, that killed so many people
and destroyed many of the cities and
towns on the gulf coast a few weeks ago.
There were people, even children who
lost their homes and everything they
owned. People were trapped in the dark,
with no food or drink, and flood water all
around them. I saw little children on the
news being rescued from roof tops, and
babies crying in their parent's arms as
they waited for help. I wonder how many
of the adults and how many of the chil-
dren thought to call on God for help dur-
ing such a horrible time? I think that
quite a few of them probably called out
to the Lord God to help them, to not let
them die, to save them. I pray they asked
Him to save their lives, but most of all
their souls. The Bible, God's Word tells
us where our help comes from in Psalms
121:1-2 1 "I will lift up mine eyes unto
the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD,
which made heaven and earth."
You probably were not in the storm but
at some time in your life you have gone
through storms, and you will go through
storms again. It may be a storm.of bad
weather, such as a thunderstorm or a hur-
ricane, or it may be the kind of storm that
happens much more often, "the storms of
life." You know, storms like a bad day at


Sponsoring families
"Greatest Opportunity"
for church evangelism

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 14, 2005 --
Franklin Graham, president and CEO of
the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
(BGEA), has challenged churches across
the country to sponsor families affected by
Hurricane Katrina.
Graham says that while churches should
help meet the physical needs of those dis-
placed by the tragedy, he also believes this
is a wonderful opportunity to show
Christ's love.
"This is the greatest opportunity for
evangelism that I know of in our country
today and if we're not careful, churches
will sleep through this," said Graham in a
nationally televised interview. "By the
time they see the opportunity it's going to
be too late."
Graham suggests that churches follow
these key steps when sponsoring families:
Arrange rental housing for 90 days.
Help the head of the household find a

school, being sick, someone you love be-
ing sick, getting hurt, being lonely or
sad, maybe your favorite toy or your bike
is lost or broken, not getting picked for a
team, bad grades in school, trouble in
your family, or any other thing that has
gone wrong in your life. That kind of
thing is a "storm of life." We all have
these kinds of storms, and we all need
help. What do you do when things go
wrong? Where does your help come
from?
If you know the Lord, I would hope
you will always remember to call on Him
to be your help. If you don't know the
Lord, I hope you will realize there is one
God, the Heavenly Father, and He cares
so much for you. Call on Him to be your
help. In the Bible we read about His help.
Ps 46:1 says "God is our refuge and
strength, a very present help in trouble."
You see, you can take refuge in Him, he
will be your strength and your help!
I heard a lady on TV telling how God
had kept her and her home and restau-
rant safe through another hurricane 10
years ago. Her name is Greta, and she
lives on a island. She knew that God
would protect her from the storm. She
really believes in the promises in God's
Word. The storm destroyed everything
around Greta's home and restaurant,
but her place was not damaged. Her
restaurant was open right, after the
storm, the only one around, and she fed


all the people who were hungry. God
really was Greta's help!
All of us, adults and kids, have storms
in our lives sometimes. When we do,
where is our faith and trust? Will you re-
member your help comes from the
Lord? Next time something bad happens
to you or your family, remember, God


will never leave you, He will always
help you. Talk to Him, tell Him what
you need or want Him to do to help you.
He is waiting for you to pray to Him.
When you do He will give you the help
that you need. Everyday, remember
where your help comes' from, your help-
comes from the Lord.


Hey Kids! Can you find all

these words in this puzzle?

Our help comes from the Lord

is your mattress

making you sick?.
.- .
















Your mattress is probably comfortable, but is it safe? You
may be exposed to toxins every night in the form of flame
retardants from your mattress.
"For many years, unbeknownst to most of us, we have
been absorbing these highly toxic substances," says Walt
Bader, president of Lifekind Products. His company makes
organic mattresses. "Not only are mattresses made from
chemical components, but to make matters even worse,
they are then treated with chemical fire retardants that off
gas fumes that you breathe as you sleep."
Bader explains that the latest scientific evidence suggests
that amounts of polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) as
small as one part per million can cause long-term behavioral
alterations in experimental animals. PBDEs were commonly
used in mattress manufacturing until January 2005, so are
most likely part of the mattress you currently sleep on.
Although PBDEs are no longer used in mattress
manufacturing in the United States, Bader doesn't consider
the alternatives to PBDEs any better. "Considering that
PBDEs were supposedly the safer alternative to toxic
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated
biphenyls (PBBs), the odds are against the new chemicals
being any safer," says Bader.
These chemicals can be especially toxic to children.
"Researchers say the effects on children are likely to be
subtle," says Bader. "Not mental retardation or disability, but
measurable changes in a child's intelligence, memory,
hyperactivity and hearing."
In addition, over 90 percent of commercial mattresses use
polyurethane foam in their construction. "This foam is
created chemically from a number of carcinogenic chemicals
such as polyols and isocynates," explains Bader.
"Unfortunately, the labeling laws for mattresses require that
the manufacturer disclose what the mattress is made of, but
not what chemicals it was made from. This is a significant
distinction and a potentially important health hazard," Bader
continues.
His company makes mattresses that are entirely organic.
"Our products will never be exposed to chemically-based fire
retardants or synthetic materials. Your Lifekind mattress will
be handcrafted to the highest quality standards and will be
backed by a two-month comfort exchange policy and the
best 20-year warranty in the industry," says Bader.
Lifekind mattresses are made in the United States from
certified organic cotton and Naturally Safer wool supplied by
America's organic farmers. The company is the only organic
mattress manufacturer that uses an exclusive non-chemical
sterilization process to sanitize its raw materials. The
company's factory recently was certified as an organic
processing facility, the only mattress manufacturer in the
United States to attain that designation.
"Wool, by its inherent properties, will not burn, and Lifekind
mattresses have passed all standard flammability tests for
all states," explains Bader. "If you're concerned about your
exposure to toxic chemicals, the next mattress you buy
should be organic," he continues.
Lifekind also offers pillows, bedding, blankets and other
organic additions for the nontoxic bedroom. For more
information, visit www.lifekind.com or call (800) 284-4983.

Dear Classified Guys,
When my kids moved out a few years
ago, I was relieved that my days of
parenting were over so I adopted a
six-month-old dog from the pound.
She was frisky and more than
enough to care for. A few weeks ago
I got a surprise. Believe it or not, a
peacock showed up in my yard.
Since it hung around for a few days, I
put a lost and found ad in the news-
paper, but nobody claimed it. I felt so
bad that I gave it food and figured it
would eventually go home.
Now it just hangs around
all day with my dog. I
think they are actually
becoming friends. Will this
peacock go home?
Cash: I hate to be the one to break it
to you, but I think the peacock is home!
It seems you may have a new addition
to the family.
Carry: Just look at it this way. It's
less intrusive than the kids moving
back home with you.
Cash: Your new friend could have
come from almost anywhere. Peacocks
are popular at parks, zoos, and farms.
Many people even raise them as pets.
Some like to refer to them as living
lawn ornaments.

Carry: The "peacock" is the male
peafowl with beautiful long tail feath-
ers, up to 5 feet in length. The female
is called a peahenn" and does not have
the fan-like tail.
Cash: Both the male and female usu-
ally stay near their food source. Since
you took the initiative to feed him, he
may not see the need to move along.
However, you have to remember that it
\ is a wild bird that has wandered before
so anything is possible.
Carry: Come their mating season, it's
also possible that you could get more
company as well. The male birds can


sometimes attract 2 to 5 females to his
harem. So if there are other peahens in
the area, they may be drawn to him.
Cash: As you well imagine, the rela-
tionship between your dog and the pea-
cock is unique. Peafowl usually see
dogs as a predator and stay clear of
their areas. It seems your dog was
overly kind in welcoming the bird.
Carry: The good news is that
peafowl make great watch birds. When
startled, they make a noisy alarm call.
Since your dog seems overly friendly,
maybe the peacock can help watch over
your house.


Bird Calling
Peafowl are found almost anywhere in
the world, but are prized animals in one
country. In 1963, the peacock was
declared the national bird of India
because of its involvement in Indian tra-
ditions. Hindus consider the bird to be
sacred and believe that the god
"Kartikeya" rides on its back. Legend
also says that the peafowl are able to
charm snakes and addle their eggs. It's
common to see the birds running wild
and helping to control the Cobra popula-
tion by eating the young snakes.
Shake It
Visit almost any zoo and you can see
the majestic sight of a peacock raising his
beautiful tail features. But their tails are
designed for more than just entertaining
park guests. A peacock raises his tail as
part of the mating ritual. They shake it to
attract the attention of the females. In
fact, during a courtship, a peacock will
spend much of the time with his back to
the female to show off its feathers. And
the peacocks that have the most patterns
of "eyes" in their tail tend to get the most
attention. *

Sunrise
My best friend and I grew up in the
country where most of our hobbies
involved playing in the nearby farms
or hunting. As we grew older, we
kept in touch and often joked about
our backwoods upbringing.
While shopping one day, I found a
rooster alarm clock that crowed at
sunrise and decided it was the perfect
gift for my friend's birthday. I
thought he would get a laugh out of a
rooster crow every morning.
A few weeks later he called me to
say thanks for the gift, but that it
didn't work anymore.
"What happened?" I asked.
"It went off too early one morn-
ing," he replied. "So I shot it!"
(Thanks to Alexander G)
