The Hamilton County


Veterans Stadium


Kayo McGhin

Kayo McGhin was a

small town pharmacist

but a big sports fan


A committee chosen by
members of the school board
named the Hamilton County
High School (HCHS) football
field for two men known for
their love of the county, the
schools and sports. The
name, The Kayo
McGhin/John Brown Foot-
ball Field, pays tribute to
Kayo who was a dedicated


supporter of Jasper High
School (JHS), and later
HCHS, athletic teams for
over 40 years.
As a member of the Hamil-
ton County Athletic Boost-
er's Club, Kayo sold season
tickets and raised funds for
many high school teams. He
see McGhin, Page 2A


Members of the school
board agreed that the name
of the football stadium at
Hamilton County High
School should reflect their
appreciation of all veterans
in the county, not just one
person. So they collectively
agreed on the name "The
Hamilton County Veterans
Stadium."
Superintendent of Schools
Harry J. Pennington stated,
"There is no greater satisfac-
tion than having the oppor-
tunity to participate in nam-
ing 'the stadium As was
pointed out at the board
meeting when this decision
was made, the name 'Hamil-
ton County Veterans Stadi-


um' will represent all veter-
ans: past, present, and fu-
ture."
With more than 1,000 vet-
erans and over 200 active
military personnel, Hamilton
County has more veterans
per capital than any other
county in the state, according
to Herbert Lumpkin, Hamil-
ton County Veterans Ser-
vices Administrator. "These
men and women deserve
some recognition for the sac-
rifices they have made," he
stated.
Those who served or are
serving in the military not
only protect our local com-

Coach John Brown


Coach John Brown

influenced generations

of young people


Members of the school
board selected a committee
to name the football field at
Hamilton County High
School (HCHS). They chose
the name, The Kayo McGh-
in/John Brown Field, to rec-
ognize a coach who has been
involved with school sports
for almost 40 years.
Athletic coaches often have


a significant influence on
young athletes and other stu-
dents who see them as role
models. Coaches teach
young people to try to do
their best, to accept responsi-
bility for their actions and
how to work together as a
team. Coach John Brown has

First Federal rallies community

support of hurricane evacuees


First Federal Savings
Bank has challenged the
community to raise funds
in support of local hurri-
cane evacuees. First Federal
agreed to match contribu-
tion funds up to $10,000.
This generous donation has
been made to the United
Way of Suwannee Valley to
support evacuees who are
now living in our local com-
munities.
First Federal President


and CEO, Keith Leibfried
stated, "Many hurricane
evacuees have settled in our
communities, enrolling
children in schools, and will
be living in our area for the
foreseeable future. Assis-
tance provided to hurricane
evacuees through Ameri-
can Red Cross, FEMA, as
well as other state and fed-
eral programs are impor-
tant; however, there are
many needs that fall be-


yond the scope of these pro-
grams."
First Federal has part-
nered with United Way of
Suwannee Valley to serve
as fiscal agent and facilitate
the use of the hurricane do-
nations by the various com-
munity agencies seeking to
provide assistance and
management to the evac-
uees.

Rural Folklife Days highlight

old-time activities, traditions


Robert Ezell, age 90, lost control of his motor home as he exited 1-75 south at US Hwy
129 last Friday. He and his wife, Alvema, age 86, were transported to Shands Hospital by
helicopter. (Staff Photo)


Accident ends couple's trip


30 miles from family's home


"I was afraid
we would
turn over."
Robert Ezell
Less than 30 miles from
their destination, Robert
and Alvema Ezell's trip to
visit their family ended
abruptly. The couple were
traveling from their home in
Asheville, N.C., to visit his
brother, Richard Ezell, who
lives in Live Oak.
According to Robert
Ezell's niece, Jennifer McIn-
tyre, he said that as he exit-


ed 1-75 south onto the off-
ramp at US Hwy. 129, the
accelerator stuck. He told
his niece, "I let off the cruise
and started braking, but it
didn't slow down. I was
afraid we would turn over."
Then just as he feared, the
motor home did turn over.
"The RV kept moving
over and then it flipped in
the median a couple of
times," said Heath Sellars,
who was traveling behind
the Ezells and saw the acci-
dent. "It just seemed to hap-
pen in slow motion."
Both of the Ezells were
transported by helicopter to


Shands Hospital in
Gainesville, McIntyre said.
Her aunt is in the Trauma
Unit at the hospital after un-
dergoing over seven hours
of surgery on both of her
legs, which were broken in
several places. She will be
transported by air to a hos-
pital in North Carolina as
soon as she is stable
enough, according to the
Ezell's sister-in-law, Betty
Ezell.
Betty Ezell also reported
that Robert Ezell had been
released from the hospital

Horse-drawn wagon
rides, homemade jams and
jellies, and making hand-
churned butter and lye
soap are among the old-
time traditions of Florida
that will be presented at
Rural Folklife Days in
White Springs on Thurs-
day, Nov. 3 and Friday,
Nov. 4.
The festival at Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park celebrates farm
and household traditions
that remain a part of'fami-
ly and community life.
Area residents demon-
strate how to preserve
fruits and vegetables with
home canning, how to plait
a cow whip by hand, and
how to make a hand-sewn
quilt.
This year's event in-
cludes storytellers Aunt
Peggy and Jay, a demon-
stration of hand-tied cast
nets by Florida Folk Her-
itage Award winner Stuart


Pacetti, and traditional
children's games. A cane
grinder operated by a don-
key will press juice from
sugar cane as Mary and
Ivey Harris boil the juice
down to the consistency of
dark syrup.
School groups are en-
couraged to attend for a
fun and educational day
revisiting how to make
homemade peanut brittle
or how a blacksmith forges
iron into tools. Among the
educational activities are
opportunities to try quilt-
ing, play horseshoes and
learn a local form of the
checkers board game
known as pool checkers.
Most of the demonstra-
tions throughout the day
are designed to allow chil-
dren to participate in the
activity. Schools may pre-
register by calling 397-
4478.
Senior citizens are en-
couraged to attend to enjoy

have served our county and
our country.
Lamar Royals, VFW
#8095 Post Commander,
said, "The stadium will rec-
ognize so many young indi-


viduals who are serving
our country and older ones
who have served our coun-
try."
A group of local residents
who were selected by the
school board members had
the difficult task of naming


the field after an individual.
But the ten people on the
committee couldn't narrow
it down to just one person.
They chose the name "The
Kayo McGhin/John Brown
Field" in recognition of the
contributions of two well-


known and well-loved men
who have supported many
football teams over the
years.
Superintendent of
Schools Harry J. Penning-.
ton said, "The name 'Kayo
McGhin/John Brown Field'


will serve to remind current
and future generations of
the many years that Mr.
Kayo and Coach Brown
worked to promote athlet-
ics in Hamilton County."
In their last game of the
season, the Trojans will


meet the Suwannee County
Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. All
veterans and active military
personnel with a military.
ID card will be admitted
free. Stickers and miniature
flags will be given to every-
one who attends the game.


McGhin

also provided the teams with
a medical kit for the treat-
ment of minor injuries.
"Dr.. (Frederick) Mickler
would fix the players up and
Dad would give them as-
pirin," Kayo's daughter,
Nancy Stewart laughed. "I
was in band and all three of
the boys played football. We
thought that when we left
school he would give it up
after a while, but he lived
and breathed sports."
"We are all so excited and
thrilled; we feel this is the
biggest honor," she. contin-
ued. "But Dad was very
humble he would say that
he doesn't deserve it."
Kayo was born to Walt


and Nodie McGhin in 1926.
He had three sisters Nina
Ruth McGhin, Merrill Shut-
tack and Jeannie Mayne
Garaghan and one brother -
Herman McGhin.
As a young boy, Kayo
cleaned and swept Mr. In-
gram's drug store for five
cents a week. While attend-
ing JHS, he played football
and marched in the band.
There were not enough peo-
ple for a football team and a
band, so Kayo would rush to
change from his football uni-
form into his band uniform
at halftime. After playing the
drums in the halftime show,
he would quickly change
back into his football uni-
form to'continue the game.
Kayo graduated in 1945


and joined the United States
Navy, serving on the USS
Titdon during World War II.
In 1947, Kayo left the Navy
and began studying at the
University of Florida in
Gainesville. He graduated in
1952 with a degree in Phar-
macy.
While in college, Kayo
married Inez Cumbess.
When Kayo returned to
Jasper, he worked at Wise's
Drugstore for eight years.
Then in 1960, he and his
wife bought the same drug-
store where Kayo had
worked as a boy from John
Thigpen. At that time, Dr.
J.R. Bruce still had an office
in the back of the store.
Many remember Kayo as a
friendly, helpful small-town

been that kind of role model
to generations of young peo-
ple.
Coach Brown's wife, Bet-
tye, said, "You always won-
der if people notice what you
do. This makes it all worth-
while. Some people wait a
lifetime and never get ac-
knowledged. We feel hon-
ored and blessed. The people
here are just as good to us as
we have been to them."
Although Mrs. Brown said
that he is modest and quiet,
Coach Brown was pleased
enough to admit, "I think
this is great." He added, "I
am humbled and grateful for
this honor and I want to
thank the all the people of
the county."


Brown was born July 27,
1939, in Tampa to Richard
and Minnie Brown. He at-
tended St. Peter Claver
Catholic School through the
eighth grade and then trans-
ferred to Howard S. Blake
High School to play running-
back for the Blake Yellow
Jackets. After graduation he
attended Florida A&M Uni-
versity in Tallahassee on a
full football scholarship,
where he played running-
back on their team.
In 1965, Brown moved to
Hamilton County for his first
full-time job as a physical ed-
ucation instructor at J.R.E.
Lee High School. He also
held the positions of head
football coach and assistant
basketball coach before
transferring to HCHS in


1969.
From then until 1983,
Brown filled many positions,
including assistant football
coach, head basketball coach,
physical education instruc-
tor, driver's education in-
structor and volunteer coor-
dinator.
Before retiring in 2002,
Brown also served as athletic
director and administrative
assistant at HCHS, and com-
munity education coordina-
tor and equity coordinator
for the county.
The coach married Bettye
Peters in 1963. One daughter
and a granddaughter, Karen
and Carle Renea Allen, live

munities, they protect all
Americans everywhere. Be-
cause of our servicemen and
women, we are able to live,
work, and play in safety.
Judge R.B. Davis said,
"The stadium honors those


Hamilton County graduates
who have fought and partic-
ipated in the military and
others from across the coun-
try who have played a role in
keeping our community safe
so that we can have a stadi-
um. It honors all the folks
who have given all or part of


their lives to keeping our na-
tion free."
"As a veteran of two wars
and several other incidents, it
touches me, I am humbled by
it," continued Davis, who is
retiring from the military af-
ter more than 20 years of ser-
vice. "It's a really exciting,
kind thing to do and I think it
is., a., wonderful, way ,for
Hamilton County tohonor its
veterans."
Lawrence Udell, American
Legion #215 Commander,
said, "I am from a military
family. Members of my fami-
ly have served in World War
II and Vietnam and I served
in Korea. At one time there
were five members of my
family serving overseas. I am
glad that the county will have
a memorial for them."
Lamar Royals, VFW #8095
Post Commander, comment-
ed, "I commend the school
board and the superinten-
dent for taking the bold stand
in naming it the 'The Hamil-
ton County Veterans Stadi-
um.' There are so many
young men and women who
have entered the armed ser-
vices and who have given the
supreme sacrifice. The stadi-
um will give veterans a won-
derful feeling to look at it and
know that it is for them. I am
very appreciative."

HCHS teachers attend

NFCC history summit .J -


It was an inspired set-
ting: a 145 year-old man-
sion, a porch with huge
columns, winding staircase
and a story for every room.
Amy Norris and Rachael
Selph, history instructors
from Hamilton County
High School, met with oth-
er area teachers at the
Wardlaw-Goza-Smith Con-
ference Center, known as
the Mansion, on Wednes-


day, Oct. 5, for the NFCC
History Summit. Annual
summits are an opportuni-
ty for college and K-12 in-
structors to exchange ideas
on improving the transi-
tion of students from K-12
to college.
"One purpose of the his-
tory summit this year was
to get area teachers interest-
ed in participating in a re-
gional history fair. It has


been several years since
NFCC held a history sum-
mit and it was exciting to
meet with area teachers
and discuss what is hap-
pening in their particular
schools and curriculum,"
said Enid Kozlowski, histo-
ry department chair.
Kozlowski and NFCC in-
structors, Andrea Oliver
and Jay Welch, coordinated
the event.

on Friday. He suffered sev-
eral cuts and bruises and is
very sore, but his major
concern is for his wife, she
noted. They were married
71 years ago, when she was
15 and he was 18.
McIntyre said that the
Ezells had sold their home
in Long Beach, Calif., about
a month ago to move to
Asheville to be near their


daughter. After they
shipped their belongings to
their new home, they trav-
eled across the country in
their new motor home.
The couple decided to
come to Florida to visit his
brother in Live Oak and his
sister in Clearwater, before
it began to snow in North
Carolina. According to
McIntyre, her aunt and un-
cle have owned several mo-
tor homes and have trav-


eled extensively, but he has
never had an accident. Bet-
ty Ezell agreed that he has
never had an accident al-
though the couple travels
from California to Florida
twice a year to visit family.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol accident
report, Ezell was charged
with failure to maintain his
lane. The estimated dam-
age to the motor home was
$80,000.

For the first time, prescrip-
tion drug coverage will be
available to everyone who is
eligible for Medicare. Since
enrollment in the program is
not automatic, consumers
will need to sign up between
Nov. 15, 2005, through May
15, 2006, or risk having to
paying more for coverage
later.
Medicare beneficiaries can
choose one of two ways to
receive prescription drugs.
The first is to sign, up for a
prescription-drug-only plan,
or PDP; the second is to
choose a Medicare Advan-
tage plan. Those with limit-
ed incomes will pay no pre-
mium or deductible, or a re-
duced cost with no gap in
coverage.
What are the differences
between these alternatives?
A PDP plan lets people with
Medicare add private drug
coverage to their existing
benefits. Those who opt for
Medicare Advantage select
one health plan in their area
that will cover all aspects of
care including traditional


health benefits should con-
sult their former employer
or union to address any
questions they have. People
with Medicaid will receive
targeted information about
their options.
Consumers should also
consider the quality of care
offered by the plans in their
area. The National Commit-
tee for Quality Assurance
and Medicare offer online
resources that allow people
to compare plans for them-
selves.
"It's important for people
with Medicare to get pre-
scription drugs," said Jack
Ebeler, president and CEO
of the Alliance of Communi-
ty Health Plans, whose
members participate in
Medicare Advantage. "The
best coverage options offer
comprehensive benefits,
high-quality, well-coordinat-
ed care and lots of experi-
ence in Medicare in their
communities."

it www.achp.org or

benefits like hospital and
doctor's office visits, as well
as the new drug benefit and
others.
Private companies spon-
soring PDP and Medicare
Advantage coverage will be
marketing many different
plans, so consumers should
weigh their options careful-
ly before making a decision.
Medicare recipients can
identify programs in their
area and compare offerings
online at
www.medicare.gov or by
calling 1-800-MEDICARE
(1-800-63342173). This will
allow them to. examine
monthly premiums for each
plan. Then, they should con-
sider the prescriptions they
take as well as other health
care needs and determine
which option provides the
right level of coverage at the
best cost.
Beneficiaries should ana-
lyze their current coverage
versus that offered under
the new plan to see if en-
rolling is the right choice for
them. Those with retiree

By Reverend Charles Pettis
Jasper Assembly of God


November is the month
for Thanksgiving. Too
many times as a society
we tend to go from Octo-
ber to December and for-
get about Thanksgiving. I
think we need to under-
stand what Thanksgiving

i y ,i ble dictionary
puts it this way Thanks-
giving is a duty of which
gratitude is the grace; this
obligation of Godliness is
acknowledged by the uni-
versal sentiment of
mankind but as a Christ-
ian grace has some
blessed peculiarities; it is
gratitude for all the bene-
fits of divine redemption,
which is the grace of God
in Christ, operating in the
soul of -the believer as a
principle and going back
to Him in gratitude. II
Corinthians 9:15 says,
"Thanks be to God for His
indescribable gifts." The
ethical gratitude of Chris-
tianity connects every
good gift and every per-
fect gift with the gift of
Christ.
Moreover, it is a
Thanksgiving that in the
Christian economy, and in
it a long redounds to God
for all things. Ephesians
5:20 says, "Giving thanks
always for all things unto
God and the Father in the


name of our Lord Jesus
Christ." This characteris-
tic flows from the former;
the rejoicing that we have
in the Lord, and the ever-
lasting consolation we
posses in him, makes ever
possible variety of divine
dispensation a token for
good. TI6e Christian privi-
lege is to find reason for.
gratitude in all things.
I Corinthians 10:13 says
"There hath no temptation
taken you but such as is
common to man; but God
is faithful who will not
suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able, but
will with the temptation
also make a way to es-
cape, that ye may be able
to bear it." When we have
trouble with temptation,
the word says there has
already been a way made
to escape, the first thing
we must do is turn away.
Philippians 4:6-7 says,
"Be careful for nothing,
but in every thing by
prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let
your request be made
known unto God and the
peace of God which pas-
seth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and
minds through Christ Je-
sus."
May you have a blessed
week.

see this Hospice Care Center
come to the Suwannee Val-

making this happen."
Haven Hospice is the
area's expert in end-of-life

cently, they were known as

so long. Thanks to some ma-
jor donors stepping up to the
plate we are seeing the
dream become a reality."

the capital campaign to raise
$3 million to construct the fa-
cility began in October of
2004. With one-third of the
funds pledged, Haven Hos-
pice is ready to open the
campaign to the public.
Generosity extended dur-
ing the leadership phase al-
lowed officials to progress to

THURSDAY, NOVEMBI


White Springs







By Johnny Bullard


This is the season of
onfires, hayrides, pump-
,ins, horns of plenty, tall
porn stalks, football
games, sweaters, and,
pecans. In Truman
Capote's "A Christmas
Memory," he states, that
bne morning, one wakes
'p, feels the crispness of
the autumn air and says -
"It's fruitcake season."
In today's world, if one
eats fruitcake, it is gener-
ally "store bought," but
when I was a child grow-
ing up in north Florida,
the making of fruitcakes
this time of the year and a
little later, was a major
event. I remember, with
fondness, my maternal


grandmother, the late An-
nie Taylor, of Live Oak,
including me in this
process and, as a small
child growing up in this
area, I was not unique to
this preparation, first
there was the picking up
of the pecans, then crack-
ing them, picking the
"meat" of the nuts from
the shells, then chopping
the pecans, the candied
fruit, the breaking of eggs,
the mixture of flour, the
smell of exotic spices that
went into each huge fruit-
cake, then after the cake
came from the oven, usu-
ally in a huge, enameled
dish pan, covering it with
an oil cloth to be seasoned


A Medicare urug program
seminar will be held on
Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m.,
at the Civic Center in Jasper.
All persons on Medicare
and their caregivers should
attend to learn the latest


Sine presents MeicarelF drug programs seminar

the Medicare Prescription

A question and answer
period will follow the pre-
sentation. The program is
being sponsored jointly by


with "good bourbon" un-
til it was cut on Thanks-
giving and Christmas.
Sometimes, two fruitcakes
would be made, one for
Thanksgiving and one for
Christmas.
Long before computers
and cell phones, and
VCR's and direct dialing,
my memories of Truman
Capote's expressions of
"Fruitcake Season" and
spending time with my
beloved Grandma Taylor
in that small kitchen in
Suwannee County many
years ago are one the jew-
els I have stored in my
treasure trove of memo-
ries good memories of a
north Florida that is no
more but fondly remem-
bered this time of the year.
Parents and grandparents

memories with those you
love and hold dear they

I am sure, many golden
memories that go back a
long way Mildred Shep-
pard, who is, without a
doubt, the quintessential
Southern lady from head
to toe, will celebrate her
"100th" birthday on Sun-
day, Nov. 6, from 2 p.m.
until 4 p.m., with a recep-
tion hosted by friends
from Jasper United
Methodist Church in the
church fellowship hall. A
longtime Jasper resident,
she taught third grade in
the public 'schools of
Florida for over 40 years.
She also attended La
Grange College in La
Grange, Ga., for one year,
then transferred to Talla-
hassee to Florida State
College for Women (now
FSU), where she complet-
ed her undergraduate de-
gree. We wish this special
lady a "shower of best
wishes" on her special
day. Happy "100th" birth-
day, Miss Mildred Shep-
pard. You are truly one of
Hamilton County's trea-
sures!
The huge yard sale host-
ed by the First Baptist
Church of White Springs
for the Ethiopian Ministry
of Kim Warner, as well as
the seminary education of
Kyle Graham, was a
tremendous success. Any
time you hear the ladies of
First Baptist are hosting a
yard sale to benefit some-
one, as Bob Barker says on
"Let's Make A Deal,"
you'd better "come on
down" to White Springs
and participate.
White Springs United
Methodist Church will
celebrate Homecoming
Services on Sunday, Nov.


6, beginning at 10:45 a.m.,
in the church sanctuary. A
covered dish luncheon
will be served in the
church fellowship hall fol-
lowing the morning wor-
ship service. "Come on
down" to White Springs
and attend the homecom-
ing services.
Speaking of White
Springs United Methodist
Church, I was pleased as
punch to have dinner and
share a visit with Doris
Weaver, former church
member and longtime
White Springs resident,
now a resident of Milton,
Fla. Doris and I are good
friends, and we corre-
spond fairly often. Doris
Weaver is a wonderful
friend, mother, and
grandmother. We miss
her in White Springs, but
she loves her life in west
Florida, and Beulah,
Jonathan (Dr. Jonathan
Fountain, M.D.), and
Doris' granddaughters
keep her "hopping" and,
when they are not keep-
ing her busy. It is always
great sharing laughter,
memories, and making
more memories with my
good friend Doris
Weaver.

mentary School will host a

Floridians for Youth To-
bacco Education is a citi-
zens' initiative campaign
that is designed to protect
Floridians, especially
youth, from addiction,
disease and other health
hazards associated with
tobacco use.
Tobacco use is the lead-
ing cause of preventable
death in the U.S., account-
ing for more than 440,000
deaths each year. In Flori-
da, it causes nearly 29,000
deaths annually, and the
threat of tobacco is great-
est among youth. In fact,
more than 35,000 children
in Florida under the age
of 18 become new, daily
smokers each year (90% of
adult smokers start in
their teens), and about
one-third of those will
eventually losetheir lives
to this addiction. Current-


ly, 296,900 kids under the
age of 18 living in Florida
today will eventually die
prematurely from smok-
ing.
Several of Florida's
largest, voluntary public
health organizations, in-
cluding the American
Cancer Society, American
Heart Association, Ameri-
can Lung Association,
Campaign for Tobacco
Free Kids and NAACP,
have united to advocate
for a constitutional
amendment that would
increase statewide fund-
ing for youth tobacco edu-
cation and prevention
programs. These groups
agree that tobacco educa-
tion will save thousands
of lives and millions of
dollars in health care costs
by protecting youth from
tobacco use.


The proposed amend-
ment would require the
Florida Legislature to an-
nually fund a comprehen-
sive, statewide tobacco
education and prevention
program, using tobacco
settlement money. Annu-
al funding would be 15
percent of 2005 tobacco
settlement payments to
Florida, adjusted annually
for inflation, with one-
third of total annual fund-
ing being used for adver-
tising.
Florida receives more
than $360 million annual-
ly from the tobacco settle-
ment, yet only $1 million,
just a fraction of 1 percent,
is currently used to edu-
cate Florida's youth about
the dangers of tobacco
use. Nevertheless, mar-
keting by the tobacco in-
dustry is higher in Florida


than in any other state. In
2003, a staggering $968
million was spent by the
tobacco industry to mar-
ket their products to a
new generation of smok- ;
ers in Florida.
Floridians for Youth To-
bacco Education is con-
ducting a statewide grass-
roots campaign to collect
petitions and to advocate
passage of the youth to-
bacco education initiative.
To get involved, contact
the campaign office at

Trojans fall in


Tallahassee


Cameron goes high in the
warm-ups to make the
catch. He would have to do
the same against the
Seminoles making a great
catch for a 40-yard


touchdown reception in
double coverage. He would
catch two other passes for
39 yards, and made
three key tackles
defensively stopping big
Seminole plays.


~1


The Hamilton County
Trojans saw their playoff
hopes come to an end this
past Friday, dropping a
34-12 decision to the FSU
Seminoles.
The difference in this
game after looking at the
stats was third down con-
versions. FSU was able to
turn key third down and
long situations into big
plays, while the Trojans
were unable to sustain
drives.
There were many out-
standing efforts turned in
by the Trojans in the
game.
Doc Hendry played one
of his best games on the
line this year getting 10
tackles and assisted ,on a
huge sack on the quarter-
back. The Seminoles had
a hard time blocking the
Trojans lineman.
Naturally Whoe Rober-
son played another out-
standing game for the
Trojans as he has done all
year playing great on spe-
cial teams and making
key tackles on the line.
Eddie Battles was effec-
tive on both sides of the
ball making three tackles,
hurried the QB, and broke
up a pass. He also had key
first down runs that kept
the Trojans touchdown
drives alive.
Cohen made three key
stops on big Seminole dri-
ves preventing, further
damage, and made three
beautiful catches, one for
a 40-yard TD pass in dou-
ble coverage.


The second touchdown
drive for the Trojans was
a result of the efforts of
backup QB Mike Casey. It
would be his only posses-
sion of the game, but after
a 13-yard run by Sowell, a
17-yard burst by Mitchell,
and another great run by
Sowell for 13 yards, Casey
did not allow the sack the
play prior to get in his
way of launching a nice 40
yard strike to Cameron.
That is pretty good back-
up for the Trojans it
would seem considering
that Casey is only a
sophomore.
Lathaniel Sowell would
get the Trojans on the
scoreboard late in the first
half with an eight yard
run. He caught three pass-
es in the game for key first
downs, and had five first
down runs, gaining close
to 100 yards in the game.
Kirkland Mitchell did a
great job on special teams
with a great return of a
kickoff getting behind his
blockers, and was able to
bust a couple of first
down runs.
Chance Windham left it
all on the field making
nine tackles, with one for
a loss, and sacked the QB
once.
Another consistent Tro-
jan that played a great
game was Desmond
Williams. He was out-
standing in the secondary
against a very good pass-
ing team providing great
coverage that led to either
sacks or incomplete pass-


The game started out with the Trojans executing what they had to do with Gandy sack-
ing the QB early. Gandy also deflected a pass resulting in a Trojans interception deep in
their territory and also had two other tackles. Gandy was pretty impressive on his two car-
ries out of the backfield with one of those a big first down run for 11 yards.


es. He had seven tackles
for the game, and made a
great return on special
teams.
Joe Gandy made his
presence felt early getting
a sack on the Seminoles
first possession. Gandy
made four tackles, and
broke up a pass. He also
had two nice runs, with
one of those going 11
yards and a key first
down keeping a drive
alive.
The Trojans fell to 5-4
on the season, and will
now try to make this sea-
son one to remember next
week at the home stadium
when the Suwannee Bull-
dogs come to town in a
huge rivalry game.
The Trojans have been
looking to this game since
the start of the season.
This would certainly be a
great ending that would
give the Trojans a huge
boost going into the 2006
season.
Both the Trojans and
Bulldogs have had their
problems with consisten-
cy on the offensive side of
the ball, but both teams
bring a hard hitting de-
fensive unit with a lot of
speed. This game could be
a 3-0 contest. It should be
a good one with a ton of
intensity. Both teams
were eliminated last Fri-
day, but will make no dif-
ference to these two teams
as this will be considered
their playoff game. Kick-
off is slated for 7:30 p.m.
at the Trojans home field.

Coach Green attempts
to motivate his young
team in the pregame.
This has not been a
bad year for the young
coach. A win this week
over rival Suwannee
would sure make for
a great Trojans year.


It was certainly good to see the band show up for the game. They looked and sounded
great.


Sowell took advantage of great blocking here to score the Trojans first TD on an 8-yard run. #14 Cobb made the Seminole QB change his game plan more than once.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


As the time changed over
the weekend, so did the
weather. It really seemed
like fall. I understand it set
some records for lows in
our area. It has been good
for the fall festivals and
other events for Halloween,
and the end of October and
first of November.
On Sunday, Oct. 30, the
annual Fall Festival was
held at First Presbyterian
Church. A large crowd of
children and grown-ups
were having fun in activi-
ties such as pumpkin carv-
ing, hayride, horse rides. It
was topped off with hot
dogs (with all the trim-
mings) and fall desserts,
culminating with a marsh-
mallow roast that went on
and on, until the coals had
quit giving enough heat to
do the job of roasting. It
was a great fun evening,
there were some expert
carvings, adults as well as
children entered into the
artistic work.
The annual Community


Thanksgiving dinner and
worship service, sponsored
by the Hamilton County
Ministerial Alliance, is
planned for Sunday
evening, Nov. 20, at Jasper
First United Methodist
Church. Dinner begins at 6
p.m. in the fellowship hall,
followed by worship in the
sanctuary of the Church.
,Homecoming at Bright
Pond Baptist Church was
Sunday, Oct. 30, with Dr.
Fountain of Suwannee
County as visiting preach-
er. Guests of Wanda Robin-
son for homecoming were
her niece Eileen Maxwell;
great-niece Nikki Perkins
and her daughter Ella
Perkins, all of Douglas, Ga.
Dr. Irvin (Bo) Bembry and
Charlene were there with
his mother, Mrs. Lillian
Bembry.
William and Marty Jack-
son went to Ormand Beach
for the weekend to help
Nikki Jackson celebrate her
first birthday. Nikki is the
daughter of Bill and Tina


Jackson. Nikki's birthday is
Nov. 1, but the party was
held early so family could
attend. Also there for the
weekend and party were
Bill's mother Nina Ha'ack-
worth and his sister,
Suzanne Jackson of Valdos-
ta, Ga.; Hazen Chandler,
Jacksonville, and Bill's
stepdaughter, Samantha.
Marty said that after strug-
gling through the Georgia-
Florida game on Saturday,
they rallied for the party on
Sunday and returned
home.
Sorry our Trojans lost the
game in Tallahassee Satur-
day night. I had been to
Crystal River for a couple
of days and tried to get the
game on the radio, think-
ing Hamilton was playing
Suwannee, but that will be
this Friday night, it is al-
ways an interesting game, I
thought I was missing it, so
maybe I will make it since
it is in Jasper. They have
done well this year .and we
are proud of the team.
Here's hoping there will
be a lot of news with the
holidays coming on, and
you will get in touch with
me.

Deer-dog season nears register


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2005


Hamilton Stompers to appear


now for hunting on private lands on Special Olympics Florida


This year, hunters using
dogs to pursue deer on pri-
vate lands in Florida must
register for the 2005-06
hunting season.
This new statewide, no-
cost registration program
is mandatory during any
open deer-hunting season
when taking deer with
dogs is permitted. The rule
also applies during the
deer-dog training season.
The deer-dog hunting
season (general gun) on
private lands opened Sat-
urday, Oct. 29 in the South
Hunting Zone and contin-
ues through Jan. 8. In the
Central Zone, the season
runs Nov. 12 through Jan.
22. In the Northwest Hunt-
ing Zone, it begins on
Thanksgiving Day and
continues until Nov. 27.
Two weeks later, the sea-
son reopens Dec. 10 and
runs through Feb. 15.
Hunting clubs,


landowners or anyone
wishing to hunt deer with
dogs on a particular tract
of land can register by
completing an application,
available from all regional
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) offices and at
MyFWC.com /hunting.
The applicant may be thq
landowner or a person
representing a group
(hunting club) leasing the
land for hunting
Proof of landowner per-
mission or a copy of the

sue deer on that registered
property. Where a group
or hunting club is hunting
the same tract of land, one
registration number will
be issued for all dogs used
on that property or hunt-
ing lease.
Any individual engaged
in hunting or training deer
dogs on private lands must
possess a copy of their reg-
istration while doing so
and must not allow their
dogs off the registered
property, whether inten-
tionally or negligently.
This new rule does not
apply for hunting or train-
ing deer dogs on public
lands and wildlife man-
agement areas.

how to register for deer-
dog hunting on private
lands or to follow up on
the registration process,

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3,2005








r~PAEH OD ....- --A.- N..E-- ,I


One week ago today, I
attended the Chamber of
Commerce's Annual Ap-
preciation Dinner. It was
well-attended and the
program was genuinely
memorable. Most remark-
able, however, was the
speaker, Mr. Jim Poole,
the executive director of
the Columbia County
Chamber of Commerce.
One particular portion of
his remarks really made
an impression on me:
Never take "No" for an
answer. So, I'm not going
to. Those of you on my
list, expect a call. For
everyone else, read this.
The last couple of
months have been diffi-
cult for MainStreet Hamil-
ton County, by which I
mean me, to say the least.
My goal was to recreate
an organization that
served the county for sev-
eral years.
Of course, I cannot do
this alone; working full
time as an algebra teacher
at the high school is tough.
Recruiting new board
members to guide the or-
ganization is essential.
This should be an easy
task, since everyone I've
talked to "on the street"
believes that MainStreet
can do a lot of good and
"we really need something


here."
But I have been sur-
prised by the lack of inter-
est in supporting this or-
ganization. "I am over
committed right now."
"I'd like to, but..." "I really
wouldn't be good at that."
"You need to' talk to so-
and-so. She'd be perfect."
All of these excuses are
fine and credible, if you
truly believe that someone
else is going to step up
and do it instead of you.
They aren't. I can tell you
right now that if you don't
do it, no one will. Thou-
sands of dollars in state
grants will be lost, com-
munity programming will
be lessened, and the
buildings in your down-
towns will continue to
crumble. It's not just a loss
to property owners; it's a
loss to everyone who has
ever lived in or loved
Hamilton County.
So, you aren't good at
fundraising? Neither am I.
You don't like calling peo-
ple you don't know? Me
either. You don't know
anything about economic
restructuring / promo-
tions/historic preserva-
tion? Neither do other
MainStreet volunteers
across the country, until
they are taught. Are you
willing to try? Like I tell


my students: trying is
what makes the differ-
ence.
Those who work with
the Chamber, the Econom-
ic Development Zone
Agency, the Tourist De-
velopment Council, and
county and municipal
governments: hats off to
you. You give a lot of your
time, often without
thanks.
Those of you who go
home after work, regular-
ly attend church, and limit
your community involve-
ment to watching parades,
shame on you. We are all
tired after work. We
would all rather stay
home and watch televi-
sion and unwind. We all
want other people to make
our city / town/ county
better. But if you aren't
willing to give up a mini-
mum of one night a month
(two hours?) to help make
your community a better
place for people to
live/visit/spend money,
you will get what you put
into it.
This has been my one
and only soap box for the
tenure of my position as
MainStreet Director. I'll
get off of it now and see
what kind of results it
gets. If you will help, I will
make sure you aren't over-
burdened, that you get the
kind of preparation you
need, and that what you
do is meaningful.
We need a Board of Di-
rectors in order to go for-
ward. Do you care enough
to help? I do. Call 938-
2273 or email brentruny-
on@gmail.com. We are
creating a new organiza-
tion. The past is behind us.
The future waits.


Pastor George Francis and his wife, Amerine, were honored for their 31 years of service
to the Mt. Olive Baptist Church on Oct. 16. Shown are the pastor and his wife (r) with Dea-
con Lewis and Janice Vaughn and others. (Photo Submitted)


On Sunday, Oct. 16, the
Mt. Olive Baptist Church
family honored Pastor
George Francis and, his
wife, Amerine, for 31 years
of service. The pastor re-
ceiyed accolades from
church members, family
and friends for a job well
done.
Bro. Octavius Johnson
gave a brief summary on
the purpose of the day. Sis.
Dena Daniels noted the
many achievements accom-
plished during Rev. Fran-
cis' leadership many souls
have been saved, and sever-
al modifications and addi-


tions have been made to the
sanctuary. The choir's mu-
sic was carefully chosen to
bless the service and the
music was a testimony
within itself.
The guest speaker, Rev.
Michael Warren of Apopka,
Fla., used the 23rd Psalm to
teach about "The Shepherd
and The Supply." He gave
the audience food for
thought concerning the
Shepherd and who He is
and reminded the group
that not only is God the
good Shepherd but He is
the supply.

"I will continue to preach
the gospel as long as God

"Thank you, Sis. Francis
and my family, Mt. Olive,
Day Spring, First Central
and each of you who have
blessed me along the way.
God has been good, and is
good, and I know He has
brought me too far to leave
me."
"There is no doubt in my
mind, the Lord is blessing
me right now. Just see what
He has done and I am going
to continue to let my little
light shine," he continued.
"I am blessed always and
even more so by what has
taken place today. I am
humbled, I am grateful and
I am thankful. It is my
prayer that God will contin-
ue to bless and bless until
you no longer have room to
receive."
Rev. Francis is also pastor
of New Day Spring Baptist
Church in Lake City and the
moderator for First Central
Baptist Association.
Bro. Ray Camel, chairper-
son, and the Mt. Olive fam-
ily extend warm thanks to
those who assisted in mak-
ing the day a very special
one that will be long re-
membered.

Suwannee Health and Fit.ness going to be huge


That big building going up
next to Celebrations on
Eleventh Street is going to be
a fabulous new state-the-art
fitness center for Live Oak.
The brand new fitness center
will be called Suwannee
Health and Fitness and will of-
fer fitness options never be-
fore seen in Live Oak. Options
such as a pool, saunas, nutri-
tion center, a 75 percent bas-
ketball court, women's fitness
center, children's fitness cen-
ter and much, much more. The
target date for opening is Jan.
1, 2006.
New general manager Dan
Marsee said, "TNT Fitness
has grown so much the need to


expand was there."
TNT is Dan Marsee's gym
in downtown Live Oak.
Marsee, Suwannee High's
weightlifting coach for many
years, bought the business and
more than doubled the mem-
berships.
Barney Wainwright of
Wainwright's Construction
and his brother Brent decided
to buy TNT and build Suwan-
nee Health and Fitness.
"We wanted to build some-
thing for the community,"
Barney Wainwright said.
"Something that would be
there for our children and our
children's children. We didn't
want a facility that would be

obsolete in 20 years."
Marsee spent the summer
flying all over the country
learning about new state-of-
the-art fitness equipment. He
has incorporated what he
learned into the new facility
which will be packed with the
most modern, up-to-date
equipment money can buy.
"This equipment is all top-
of-the-line," Marsee said. "I
went to Atlanta, Los Angeles,
Ft. Lauderdale, all over look-
ing at equipment."
There are many new and fun
innovations planned for the
two-story facility. Upstairs
there will be a kid's fitness
center filled with kid-sized
equipment designed just for
them. There will also be a
women's fitness center for
women only. It will have
equipment especially designed
for women's needs. Marsee
said he wants everyone to be
comfortable in the facility. The
women's area was planned,
according to Marsee, because
sometimes women feel un-
comfortable in the masculine
atmosphere of a gym. There
will also be child-care facili-
ties for moms wishing to work
out.
Marsee said the facility will
provide a complete calendar of
group fitness classes. There
will be a "spin room," a room
filled with exercise bikes.
Group spin classes are also
planned.
Several businesses have
joined forces with the new fit-
ness center to make it truly a
health and fitness center.
Heartland Rehab will occupy
space as well as a hair salon by
Lisa Croft and Cheek's Gym-
nastics. Wainwright Construc-
tion, the company building the
center, will also have its of-
fices in the building.
Suwannee Health and Fit-
ness will employ 16-17 full-
and part-time employees when
it reaches capacity. With the
other businesses in the build-
ing, over 50 people could be
employed there.
Barney Wainwright said he
feels the center will be a first
step to major growth in Live
Oak.
"We hope the center will
bring the excitement of health
and fitness to the community,"
Marsee said.
Suwannee Health and Fit-
ness will still offer personal
training by Dan Marsee, an in-
ternationally certified personal
trainer. New assistant manager
Dedra Davis Stratton is also an
internationally certified per-
sonal trainer, as well being in-
ternationally certified as a nu-
tritional counselor. Marsee
said he plans to concentrate
more on sports-specific train-
ing.
Pre-sales have already start-
ed for the new center. There
will be family rates, individual
rates, couple's rates and corpo-
rate rates. The first 500 mem-
bers will be entered into a
drawing for a three-night
cruise. The first 500 will also
get special rates and other in-
centives along with their
chance to win the cruise.
"Suwannee Health and Fit-
ness is really about health and
fitness for every "body,'"
Stratton said. "It will 'be a
place to draw people to a posi-
tive social setting built around
fitness."

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 l
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-
reporting system. But customers may
experience busy signals and longer- V
than-normal waits during times of 4
high call volumes.

Here are a few tips to follow for your safety: d

requiring electricity, make arrangements in advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies. *To prepare for outages, it is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
* If rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home. If you have'a gasoline-powered electric generator, use it In well-
Have an electrician inspect your system before turning the power ventilated areas and only plug In individual appliances. Never

while standing on a wet or damp surface, 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.

A Delicate Balance
(ARA) As a new mother, what do you do if your infant suddenly develops what
looks like a case of teenage acne or a rash on his or her scalp? And while you're
worried about your child's skin, you may be worried about your own and the
changes it experienced during and after pregnancy. For a lifetime of healthier skin,
a dermatologist a doctor who
specializes in the care of the skin can
address both mother and baby skin
concerns.
"Psychosocial stressors, such as
hormonal changes, sleep deprivation,
Dietary changes and the new
a responsibility of caring for a baby can
have a significant effect on a mother's
skin," says dermatologist Andrea Lynn
Cambio, M.D., of New York City.
", Hormones that also can affect the
baby's skin pass from the mother to
child, leading to several common
conditions in baby that can be resolved
by consulting with a dermatologist."
Winter Skin Care for Baby
The change of season can be
challenging for the delicate skin of an
o / a infant and Dr. Cambio recommends the
following tips to prevent seasonal skin
conditions:

Use only fragrance-free baby soaps and lotions.
Apply generous amounts of moisturizing creams and ointments to areas of
baby's skin that appear dry.
Reduce the number of baths Avoid daily baths and spend no more than 10
minutes washing your child in lukewarm water.
Use a humidifier to boost moisture and ease your child's breathing overnight.
Don't bundle children up too tightly Heavy layers can make children sweat,
leading to skin irritation, while under-dressing can expose your child's skin to the
elements.
Infant Skin Conditions
Recurrent diaper rash is caused by persistent wet, soiled diapers and the use of
unnecessary baby products, such as powders, creams, lotions and oils. "When a
baby has diaper rash, parents should remember to change diapers frequently, use a
warm, wet washcloth instead of pre-moistened baby wipes on the bottom and apply
a barrier cream with zinc oxide to the affected area," recommends Dr. Cambio.
Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is an itchy, oozing, crusting rash that occurs mainly
on the face and scalp, but patches can appear anywhere. Eczema treatment can
include the use of an over-the-counter or prescription topical, steroid-free
antihistamine.
Baby acne, which can have the appearance of pimples and whiteheads along the
nose and cheeks, is quite common in newborns. This condition usually clears within
Three weeks without treatment.
Birthmarks, the two most common types of which are hemangiomas and port-
wine stains, may increase in size as a child grows. Port-wine stains are present at
birth, while hemangiomas may not immediately appear. Oral corticosteroids can be
prescribed or a pulsed-dye laser can be used to significantly improve the appearance
of these birthmarks.
Mother's Skin Changes
Dark patches on the face could be melasma, also known as the "mask of
pregnancy." This benign condition is attributed to an overproduction of melanin, a
natural substance in the body that gives color to the hair, skin and eyes. Dr. Cambio
recommends applying cosmetics to camouflage the condition and wearing a broad-
spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to prevent
further darkening of the skin. A dermatologist also can prescribe topical creams
with ingredients such as hydroquinone, retinoids, azeleic acid or hydroxyacids.
Stretch marks develop in more than 90 percent of women during pregnancy.
"There are no over-the-counter treatments to 'cure' stretch marks, but a moisturizer
may help improve their appearance and control itching," remarks Dr. Cambio.
"Women also may use a sunless tanning product which can help hide stretch marks,
or there are many successful treatment options available from a dermatologist, such
as a prescription tretinoin cream or laser treatments."
During pregnancy, itchy, red skin is common on the palms of the hands and the
soles of the feet. The best solution for this condition is to avoid long, hot showers
and switch to a fragrance-free non-soap cleanser. An over-the-counter mentholated
or oatmeal-based moisturizer stored in the refrigerator can provide added relief.
"For many new mothers, caring for their own skin after pregnancy is not at the
top of their list, while caring for their newborn's skin becomes the priority. A visit
to the dermatologist can put a mother at ease about her child's skin condition, while
finding solutions to her own skin concerns," says Dr. Cambio.

www.aad.org or contact the Academy toll-free at (888) 462-DERM (3376).

A race against time


As winter threatens earthquake survivors, Samaritan's Purse
responds with the largest airlift ever Oct. 24, 2005
A giant 747 cargo jet filled with 120 tons of relief goods from
Samaritan's Purse took off from Charlotte, N.C., to carry emer-
gency aid to earthquake survivors in Pakistan.
"The equipment and supplies loaded on this plane will help
save lives and alleviate suffering," said Samaritan's Purse Pres-
ident Franklin Graham. "Everything has been sent by Christians
in this country to show God's love to the people of Pakistan."
The 7,800-mile flight will bring enough rolls of plastic to
shelter up to 20,000 families, plus hospital equipment, medi-
cines, 350 wheelchairs, 10,000 blankets, and other urgently
needed supplies.
Shelter is the most critical need. The Oct. 8 earthquake left
about three million homeless, and about 800,000 of those still
have nowhere to live as winter looms.
"Bigger Than the Tsunami"
The humanitarian crisis following the Pakistan earthquake
could be even worse than the aftermath of the Indian Ocean
tsunami, according to a doctor who was among the first respon-
ders for Samaritan's -Purse in both disasters.
"I'm afraid the enormity here is being missed," said Dr. Geoff
Ibbotson, a Canadian surgeon who serves overseas. "This is big-
ger than the tsunami."
As estimates of the death toll continue to mount, the Oct. 8
earthquake already ranks with the tsunami last Dec. 26 as the
two deadliest disasters in the world in the last 25 years. Officials
estimate the earthquake killed at least 79,000 in Pakistan and
India. By comparison, the tsunami killed more than 176,000
people in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and other coun-
tries.
In both cases, millions were left homeless.
But the needs of the survivors are more desperate in northern
Pakistan, where winter is quickly descending on the Himalayan
slopes and isolated valleys where there are almost no buildings
left standing. The weather and terrain make relief efforts in Pak-
istan much more urgent and difficult than they were along the
tropical coasts hit by the tsunami. And the international re-
sponse in Pakistan has been only a fraction of what the tsunami
generated.
Much of the relief goods airlifted to Pakistan will be distrib-
uted in Btlakot aid' Muzaffarabad, the-cities closest'to the epi4-
center of the earthquake.
Ibbotson is among three doctors sent by Samaritan's Purse to
Pakistan in the days after the earthquake. In addition to caring
for the injured and assessing the medical needs, they have been
helping to set up the relief work in locations where few other or-
ganizations are working.
Samaritan's Purse and our church partners in Pakistan have
already provided hundreds of families with winterized tents and
basic household items. Other families are building makeshift
houses out of dirt, rocks, and rubble. Sheets of plastic will

By Franklin Graham
From North America to the far corners of the earth, Oper-
ation Christmas Child unites caring Christians to bring joy
and hope to millions of hurting children. Wilson, an 11-year-
old Panamanian boy, received more than a shoe box full of
gifts when Operation Christmas Child came to his rural com-
munity. The distribution team, consisting of local pastors and
Christian workers, told the boy about a gift of even greater
value eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. After hearing
about Jesus, Wilson prayed to receive Him as Savior.
"I am grateful for the gifts as well as the opportunity to ex-
perience the real gift, Jesus Christ, in my life," he said. "I am
now' attending church regularly and learning more about Je-
sus."
Each year, thousands of children like Wilson come to faith
in Christ through Operation Christmas Child, the Samaritans
Purse project that has brought joy and hope to more than 39
million boys and girls in over 120 countries. This global out-
reach would not be possible without the millions of caring
people in North America, Europe and Australia who pack
shoe boxes, volunteer, give financially, and pray.
Local churches not only distribute the gifts, but also share
the Good News of Jesus Christ with the children and their
families.
Operation Christmas Child also requires the efforts of a
worldwide network of National Leadership Teams, local
Christians who receive training, guidance, and encourage-

ment from our staff to help them carry out the project in their
own countries. Each National Leadership Team works with
churches throughout their country to plan distributions,
transport shoe box gifts, organize evangelistic activities and
enroll children in the follow-up Bible study course provided
by Operation Christmas Child. Local churches not only dis-
tribute the gifts, but also share the Good News of Jesus
Christ with the children and their families.
"In the book of Romans, it says we are all part of the body
of Jesus Christ," said Elizabeth Medina, the head of the lead-
ership team in Panama. "We have different functions, but we
have to work as one body. That is what the Lord wants from
us. These children need us to present Jesus Christ as the best
gift."
,A unique way to share the Gospel
Kondaiah had never celebrated Christmas before. The Hin-
du boy lives in Andhra Pradesh, a state in southeast India
with a population that is less than two percent Christian.
When he was invited to a nearby church for an Operation
Christmas Child distribution,. Kondaiah went there mostly
out of curiosity. But he had a great time and was thrilled with
the wonderful gifts. After church workers encouraged him to
come back for a 10-week Bible study course, he faithfully at-
tended every session.
"I took the lesson books home and finished the assign-
ments," Kondaiah said. "Then, my parents and 15-year-old
elder brother also started reading those books and asking me
questions."
His family obtained a Bible, and read and discussed the
Scriptures together for over a month.
"To my surprise, now all of my family has come to know
Jesus Christ," he said.
Shoe box gifts are a wonderful way to introduce children
to the story of God's greatest gift, Jesus Christ. During dis-
tributions, they are offered colorful storybooks that present
the Good News of Christ in over 70 languages. For those
who want to know more about Jesus, local churches offer a
follow-up Bible study course through our Operation Christ-
mas Child discipleship program.
Over 1.5 million children have now completed this 10-
week Bible study course, and hundreds of thousands have
made first-time commitments to Christ.
National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child
2005 is November 14-21. To learn more about this project,

Here we are in November again, the month when Thanksgiv-
ing is celebrated. The air is a little bit cooler, we see the signs
of the soon coming holidays in the stores, people are decorat-
ing with scarecrows and pumpkins, yes it is finally fall.
This has been a fall most everyone will remember because
of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the devastation they
brought to the Gulf coast of Louisiana and Mississippi, along
with several other hurricanes, floods and earth quakes through-
out the country and world. As I am writing this article, every-
one's eyes was watching Hurricane Wilma to see where she
would strike. This has been an unusual year, with so many
storms we have run out of names. I know there are thousands
of people without homes who lost everything but their lives.
And then, there are those who lost loved ones. I realize there
were so many deaths from so many different tragedies this fall.
Knowing this I find it is even more important for us to count
our blessings.
Sometimes people take for granted their home, their family
and friends, all of their material possessions which they are
blessed with, their town, their health and their very lives. We
need to remember life is a precious gift, and every day we
wake up is a day we need to thank God for. We must take a
good look at our priorities and see if we have God in first place
in our lives and are letting Him guide us through each day.
God says in the Bible in Proverbs 3:6 "In all thy ways ac-
knowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." When we learn
to turn everything in our lives over to God he will show us
what we need to do in every situation that we may find our-
selves in. God gives us a wonderful promise in Philippians
4:19, "But my God shall supply all your needs according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
So you see if you do have a need, God will meet your need,
whatever it may be. It is very special to know God as your
very best friend and to realize He cares so very much for you.
Have you ever actually taken time to count your blessings? I
am sure if you will take the time to stop and start to name
them, you will find you could go on forever. God's blessings
are endless. He will always continue to bless His children.
Think about it, first of all the greatest blessing of all is God
and his Son, our Savior Jesus giving His life for our sins. Now,


Count Your Blessings
Wordsearch
Hey Kids! Try to find the word listed below in
this puzzle and circle them! You can get your,
mom or dad's help if you want to! Have Fun!


your


blessings


that is the most awesome blessing that can possibly be named!
But that is not all,. We must at least try to name some more.
One real obvious and wonderful is that we are alive! Then ,we
can go on and count our blessings with things like our fami-
lies and friends, good health, our community, schools, church-
es, a safe place to live, our jobs, recreation and fun times,
pets, books, toys, flowers, trees, clothes, shoes, tools, our
kitchens with dishes and pots and pans in them, electricity,
water, stores to shop in, money to shop with, finances to pay
the bills, maybe a vacation, or car or truck. Let's be sure to re-
member food, especially as we begin to think about holiday
dinners.
Don't take them for granted anymore. We have seen how
many people have lost it all these past few months. Be very
thankful God has blessed you with all He has and remember it
is a blessing, so count your blessings every day.
We should not be afraid that we may suffer losses as so
many have. We need to trust God as He says in John 14:27,
"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the
world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid." Instead of worrying about a storm
coming or any kind of tragedy touching our lives, we just
need to trust in God and the promises in His Word, and be
thankful for all we are blessed with.
Thanksgiving is a very special time of the year, a time for
family and friends to sit down and share a special meal, but
even more than the meal, it is a time for them to really fellow-
ship together, to show how much they care about each other,
to draw closer to one another. It needs to be a time to really be
thankful, a time to count our blessings!
I want to close with the words to the first verse and the
chorus of the wonderful song "Count Your Blessings" by
Johnson Oatman, Jr.
"When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings,
Name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one;
Count your blessings,

See what God hath done;
Count your blessings,
Name them one by one;
Count your many blessings,
See what God hath done."
I really hope you will take time to count your blessings this
Thanksgiving and enjoy the precious loved ones around you,.
Please be sure to count your blessings every day and never
take a day for granted. Have a very blessed Thanksgiving!


Hey Kids!

How many blessings

can you count?
By Aunt Pam
Hey Kids! I was just thinking now that it is November, it is
almost time to celebrate Thanksgiving! How many things do
you have to be thankful for'?
I am sure a lot of you kids know about the terrible hurricanes
which killed lots of people and destroyed peoples' homes and
towns. Maybe you have heard things about the storms that
scared you. We should not be afraid that some bad storm could
hurt us. We need to trust God as He says in John 14:27 "Peace
I leave with'you, My peace I give to you; not as the world
gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither
let it be afraid."
Instead of worrying about a storm or anything bad coming
into our lives, we need to trust in God and the promises in His
Word and be thankful for all we are blessed with. Maybe when
you think about it it makes you feel sad. You can pray for those
people and ask God to help them.
Something fun you really can do is start to count your bless-
ings! You probably have a home, a family, friends, pets, a
school, a church, food to eat, toys to play with, so many things
you can count as your blessings!
Maybe some of you kids would like to sing the chorus to a
really great song called "Count Your Blessings." You can sing
the song while you try to name all the blessings you have!
Here are the words to the song's chorus: "Count your blessings,
%*name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God
hath done; Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count
your many blessings, see what God hath done."
When you stop and think about it, God really has blessed
you with lots of blessings! Keep counting, see how many you
can name! Have a real blessed Thanksgiving, kids!.

Dear Classified Guys,
I used to think my brother Trevor was
a fool. Now I'm beginning to realize
that he's a genius in disguise. For
years he's been buying things in the
classified while would buy things
new in the store. But when he found
out my husband and I were having a
baby, he surprised us with every-
thing we needed for our nursery, all
in new condition and at a fraction of
the new cost. I was so amazed. The
only problem is, we found out we're
having twins! Since he found such
great deals, I want to buy
another set of everything '
like he did. But after razz-
ing him for so many years, I
figure I better do it myself. Can
you give me a few pointers on
finding & buying baby items so I
don't make too many mistakes?

Cash: It seems Uncle Trevor may
have a few things to teach your children
when they grow up.
Carry: And considering the cost of
children's items, his talents could be
very useful to you in upcoming years.
Cash: Fortunately, it doesn't take a
"genius" to follow in your brother's
footsteps. Shopping the classified is
like shopping any catalog. Once you

spot an item you need, call the seller
and ask more specifics.
Carry: The trick to finding a good
deal is knowing the value of an item. If
you've been shopping for children's
items recently, you may be well aware
of their cost.
Cash: Try to purchase from parents
who used things only once. Items that
are used through multiple children or
passed among family members tend to
see higher wear and tear.
Carry: If you're still nervous about
taking your first "baby steps" toward
buying in the classified, ask the future
Uncle Trevor for some assistance.

When he finds out you're having twins,
he'll probably be more than happy to
help. Although considering you've
razzed him for years, be prepared for a
little ribbing in return.
Cash: If you can't find everything
you need in your local classified sec-
tion, visit a few yard sales in your area.
Baby items are among the most popular
merchandise since items are rarely
worn out by the time children outgrow
them. It's also common to find toys and
games still in their original box.
Carry: Although if your twins are
like most kids, the box may be the best
toy of all.


Happy Birthday
Twins, triplets and quadruplets are
more common today than ever before.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention has tracked a steady rise in
twin and triplet births since 1980 and
the pace quickened throughout the
1990's. In 2003, there were 136,328
multiple births, 128,665 of them were
twins. The steady increase is attributed
to not only fertility drugs, but also to
the increased age of women bearing
children. Women in their thirties or
older are more likely to have a multiple
birth than women in their twenties.

Be Alert
When it comes to buying items for
children, nothing is more important
than safety. Whether you choose to
buy your items at a yard sale, through
the classified or directly off the
department store shelves, make sure
that the items you choose are safe.
Every year many toys, games or baby
items are given safety warnings or
recalled, yet they are still sold nation-
wide. Before your next purchase, visit
the Consumer Products Safety
Commission at www.cpsc.gov. A few
minutes online can go a long way for
your child's safety.

Diaper Genie
With a three-month-old child, I'm
always stopping at yard sales to see
what I can find to save a few dollars.
Last week I found a potty training
chair that was still brand new.
"I never needed it," the woman
explained. "At first my husband
wanted nothing to do with potty
training. Then I found a way to con-
vince him to take over the process.
He had my daughter trained in three
months."
"That's amazing," I told the
woman. "What did you say to moti-
vate your husband?"
"Nothing," she replied. "I just
showed him the price of diapers."
(Thanks to Cassandra J.)
