White Springs man charged



with attempted murder


Shenner Mack Webb Jr.
Shenner Mack Webb Jr.,
age 25, of 15390 SE CR
25A in White Springs, was
charged with attempted
felony murder, shooting
into an occupied vehicle
and two counts of aggra-
vated assault last Sunday
after firing a 12-gauge
pump shotgun at one car
and threatening the occu-
pants of another, accord-
ing to the White Springs
Police Department


(WSPD).
Earlier in the day Webb
had a confrontation with
Bryan Johnson of 14931
CR 25A in White Springs,
and Keisha Hill, of the
same address, at a resi-
dence in Pine Manor Trail-
er Park in White Springs,
according to a WSPD re-
port. Hill is the estranged
girlfriend of Webb and
has a restraining order,
against him, the report
said.
According to the White
Springs Police Depart-
ment arrest report, John-
son and Hill were travel-
ing along Mill St. in White
Springs at approximately
4 a.m. when they saw
Webb walking with a
shotgun in his hand near
Tom's Place. Due to the
earlier confrontation,
Johnson stopped his car'
and his sister, Candice
Shanelle Cooks, also of the


same address, went
around him in her car.
According to the report,
Cooks stated that Webb
opened the driver's door
and tried to put the barrel
of the shotgun inside the
car while she was driving.
She was able to close the
door before he fired two
shots at her car with a 12-
gauge pump shotgun, the
report said. The shotgun
blast punctured the rear of
the car. and the rear win-
dow in almost 20 places,
according to the report.
Immediately after-
wards, Webb aimed the
shotgun at Johnson and
Hill, the report said. John-
son escaped by reversing
his car and leaving the
area at a high rate of
speed. The report states
that both Johnson and Hill
said they feared for their

Altercation between


deputy and Jennings


man ends violently

"The officer had no choice under
the circumstances he rescued the
woman and the child and there
were no other injuries." j l ,


When Hamiltori County
Sheriff's Deputy Bobby
Boatwright responded to
a 9-1-1 call early on the
morning of Dec. 11, he
didn't expect to have to
pull his weapon nor to use
it. But a violent altercation
between the deputy and a
man in a motel room end-
ed in the death of Antonio
Javar Whetstone, age 27,
of Jennings.
According to Sheriff
Harrell Reid, Whetstone
and an unidentified
woman were staying in
Room 115 of the North
Florida Inn in Jennings.
Lavita Daniels of Jen-
nings, Whetstone's girl-


Sheriff Harrell Reid
friend, went to the motel
room, pushed the air con-
ditioning unit into the
room, crawled through
the hole and began argu-
ing with the other
woman.
Sheriff Reid said that
when Deputy Boatwright
arrived at the motel, he
saw a one-year-old child
in the parking lot heading
toward the road. The offi-
cer picked up the child
and asked a woman who
was standing outside the
open door of Room 115 if
the child was hers. She
pointed inside the room.
The officer tried to give
the child to the woman,


but the child would not
go to her. So he entered
the room, still carrying
the child.
Deputy Boatwright
heard loud voices in the
bathroom, according to
Sheriff Reid. When he
went to the door of the
bathroom, the child saw
Daniels, who was its
mother, and went to her.

Birders reveal new bird

secrets in the 106th annual

Christmas bird count


The Four Rivers
Audubon Society is look-
ing for volunteers in North
Florida and South Georgia
to join birders across the
western hemisphere and
participate in Audubon's
longest-running winter-
time tradition, the annual
Christmas Bird Count
(CBC), held on Saturday,
Dec. 17, in Hamilton
County. Counts are open
to birders of all skill levels.
This year, over 2,000 indi-
vidual counts are sched-
uled to take place through-
out the Americas from
Dec. 14, to Jan. 5, 2006.
"Having fun while bird-
ing can ield important re-
sults that affect bird con-
servation," said Geoff
LeBaron, National
Audubon's Christmas
Bird Count director.
"Audubon and our part-
ners at the Patuent
Wildlife Research Center


and the Boreal Species Ini-
tiative are analyzing data
from the overall CBC data-
base, and using the results
they find to develop
Audubon's 'State of the
Birds' report. These results
will be reflected in 2006 in
our 'State of the Birds' wa-
terbirds report, and in-
form the Audubon Watch-
List, which is used to pri-
oritize Audubon's bird
conservabton activities."
The CBC began over a
century ago when 27 con-
servationists in 25 locali-
ties, led by scientist and
writer Frank Chapman,
changed the course of or-
nithological history. On
Christmas Day in 1900, the
small group posed an al-
ternative to the 'side hunt,'
a Christmas day activity in
which teams competed to
see who could shoot the

At this point, Sheriff Reid
said Whetstone came from
behind the bathroom door
and grabbed Daniels in a
choke hold.
Sheriff Reid stated that
Deputy Boatwright drew
his weapon and repeated-
ly told Whetstone, "Let
them go! Let them go!"
Daniels was still holding
the child, but Whetstone
refused and reached be-
tween his body and that of
the woman's as)f he were
grabbing a weal n.
According to the sheriff,
at that time, Deputy
Boatwright holstered his
weapon and pulled the
taser and fired at Whet-
stone with the taser. Al-
though Whetstone was hit
by the taser, he did not re-
lease Daniels and the child.
Instead he pulled a
weapon and fired at the of-
ficer over Daniels' shoul-
der, Sheriff Reid said.
In spite of the danger to
himself, Deputy
Boatwright grabbed
Daniels and the child from
Whetstone, while drawing
his weapon and firing sev-
eral times at Whetstone,
Sheriff Reid said. As the of-
ficer fired at Whetstone, he
pulled the woman and the
child outside the bathroom
to safety, Sheriff Reid
added. Neither Daniels nor
the child were injured.
According to Sheriff


Charged


Reid, a tape of the con-
frontation confirms that
Deputy Boatwright told
Whetstone fifty to sixty
times to release Daniels
and the child. Sheriff Reid
stated that Daniels con-
firmed that Whetstone
fired first.
"This a terrible tragedy,"
Sheriff Reid commented.
"I'm sorry for the family of
the young man, but he
fired first. The officer had
no choice under the cir-
cumstances he rescued
the woman and the child
and there were no other in-
juries."
The case is under investi-
gation by the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment and the State Attor-
ney and will go to the
grand jury. According to
Sheriff Reid, the investiga-
tors feel that Deputy
Boatwright was totally jus-
tified in his actions.
Whetstone had previ-
ously been arrested on nu-
merous drug charges and
was a convicted felon,
Sheriff Reid noted. At the
time of the incident, he
was out on bond on
charges of possession and
sale of cocaine, possession
of a firearm by a convicted
felon and possession of a
firearm with an altered se-
rial number.
According to Sheriff
Reid, the weapon used by
Whetstone during the al-
tercation was stolen.

lives when the shotgun
was pointed at them.
The report stated that
Webb waived his rights
and stated orally and in
writing that he had fired at
Cooks' car using a 12-
gauge pump shotgun, ac-
cording to the report. He
also stated he had been
drinking since Friday, had
smoked approximately
five joints and had taken
two or more lines of co-
caine, according to the re-


port. He said he did not
know why he fired at the
car, but he was mad and
upset about his relation-
ship with Hill. He also stat-
ed he had dropped the
shotgun near the scene
when he fled and that he
did not know where it was,
the report said.
Webb was arrested later
Sunday and bond was set
at $100,000. He had previ-
ously been arrested on
Dec. 7 for battery and was
subsequently released on
$1,000 bond.

most birds and small mam-
mals. Instead, Chapman
proposed to identify, count,
and record all the birds they
saw, founding what is now
considered to be the world's
most significant citizen-
based conservation effort
and a more than century-old
institution.
Today, in Audubon's cen-
tennial year (making the
CBC five years older than
Audubon!), over 55,000 vol-
unteers' from all 50 states,
every Canadian province,
parts of Central and South
America, Bermuda, the
West Indies, and Pacific Is-
lands, will count and record
every individual bird and
bird species seen in a speci-
fied area.
During the 105th season,
about 70 million birds were
counted. Thanks in part to
Bird Studies Canada, a lead-
ing not-for-profit conserva-
tion organization that is the
Canadian partner for the
CBC, last year saw a record
high yet again: 2,022 indi-
vidual counts. Each count
group completes a census of
the birds found during one
24-hour period between
Dec. 14 and Jan. 5 in a desig-
nated circle -15 miles in di-
ameter and about 177 square
miles.
Apart from its attraction
as a social and competitive

event, CBC reveals valuable
scientific data. The 106th
CBC is larger than ever, ex-
panding its geographical
range and accumulating in-
formation about the winter
distributions of various
birds. The CBC is vital in
monitoring the status of res-
ident and migratory birds
across the Western Hemi-
sphere, and the data, which
is 100% volunteer generated,
has become a crucial part of
the U.S. Government's nat-
ural history monitoring
database.
Count results from 1900 to
the present are available
through Audubon's website
www.audubon.org / bird / c
bc. CBC compilers enter
their count data via
Audubon's website or
through Bird Studies Cana-
da's homepage at www.bsc-
eoc.org, where the 106th
Count results will be view-
able in near real-time.
Audubon is celebrating its
centennial year of protecting
birds and other wildlife and
the habitat that supports
them. Our national network
of community-based nature
centers and chapters, scien-
tific and educational pro-
grams, and advocacy on be-
half of areas sustaining im-
portant bird populations,'
engage millions of people of
all ages and backgrounds in
positive conservation expe-.
riences.


Crist cautions


holiday shoppers


to prevent id theft


Attorney General Charlie
Crist recently advised
Floridians to be careful
when using credit and deb-
it cards to pay for gifts dur-
ing this holiday shopping
season to avoid becoming
victims of identity theft. He
also said the crowds and
turmoil at shopping centers
makes it vitally important
that parents also keep a
close eye on small children.
The Attorney General's
Fraud Hotline has received
some 3,400 calls concerning
identity theft since it was
instituted in 2003. Accord-
ing to the Federal Trade
Commission, a total of
38,325 Floridians filed
fraud or identity theft com-
plaints in 2004, and almost
one-third of the 16,062
identity theft complaints
concerned credit card
fraud.
Crist offered the follow-
ing suggestions for Floridi-
ans to avoid identity theft
while shopping: Don't take
out credit cards before you
get to the register. This will
allow you to control the
number of people who see
the information on your
cards and will reduce the
chance of misplacing them.
Protect your credit num-
bers from the people
around you.
Beware of others who
have cell phones in their
hands but are not making
calls. Clever thieves are us-
ifig cell phones to take pho-
tographs or videos of credit
cards or personal informa-
tion. Carry only the credit
or debit cards your plan to
use for holiday purchases.
If your wallet or purse is
stolen, fewer accounts will
be affected.
Make online purchases


through secure websites
from companies you trust.
If someone claiming to be a
representative of your bank
or lending institution, or a
business with which you
have an established ac-
count, asks you to provide
account information over
the Internet, do not do so.
This is not a legitimate re-
quest for information but is
instead a scam called
"phishing." Legitimate
banks and businesses al-
ready have that informa-
tion and do not need to ask
you for it.
Keep your billing infor-
mation private and avoid
sharing it via cell phone, es-
pecially in a location where
a stranger could overhear
and write down the infor-
mation. Take all receipts
with you so that no one else
picks them up. If you throw
away your receipts, tear
them up first. Look at cred-
it card statements carefully
to check for charges you
did not make. Contact the
credit card company right
away if you find any prob-
lems.
If you are a victim of
identity theft, report to the
police and then ask the na-
tional credit bureaus to
place a fraud alert on your
credit report. Tell banks
and creditors involved that
you question the charges or
accounts. Keep records of
telephone calls and follow
up in writing with credit
bureaus, banks and credi-
tors.
Victims may call the At-
torney General's Fraud
Hotline at, 1-866-966-7226
(1-866-9-NO-SCAM). They
may also visit the Attorney
General's website at

Last Monday, several deputies from the Leon County Sheriff's Office played Santa at the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch in Live Oak. They collected donations, bought presents and
delivered them to several youth ranches in Florida. Sergeant Steve Harrelson, who lived
in Jasper in the early eighties, began this project to provide special gifts to the families
who live at the ranches. Shown with him are appreciative cottage parents and excited
children who received some of the presents in Live Oak. The rest of the presents will be
delivered to other ranches in Florida. (staff Photo)


Lake City to receive $3.3

million for drinking water

facility improvements


The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) recently
awarded a $3.3 million
low-interest loan to the
City of Lake City for up-
grades to the city's drink-
ing water treatment plant.
The loan, part of DEP's
State Revolving Fund
Program, is the latest in-
stallment in a $12.5 mil-
lion project to renovate
the drinking water facili-
ty.
The original loan was
for planning and design-
ing drinking water sys-


tem improvements. The
new funding will be used
for construction.
The State Revolving
Fund Program was estab-
lished to provide low-in-
terest financing to plan,
design and build public
water, wastewater and
stormwater systems.
Funds can be used for
drinking water, waste-
water, stormwater, reuse,
water quality projects,
brownfields, estuary pro-
tection and other water
quality improvement pro-
jects. Funded by federal


capitalization grants,
state matching funds,
loan repayments and in-
terest earnings, State Re-
volving Fund Program
loans are offered at inter-
est rates as low as 32 per-
cent below current mar-
ket rates. Repayments
from earlier loans are
used to make new loans,
allowing the program to
operate in perpetuity.

Tips to cope with holiday stress


From decking the halls to
hitting the malls, preparing
for the holidays can leave
you .with no energy to
spare for celebrating. For-
tunately, there's plenty you
can do to fight off the fa-
tigue that follows prepar-
ing for the holidays. The
following tips will help
you remain stress-free:
Drink plenty of water.
Since dehydration can
make you tired, carry a
water bottle and sip the
water throughout the day.
Also, limit coffee and alco-
hol intake. These two
drinks can induce dehy-
dration.
Get a sufficient amount


of sleep. Sleep at least eight
hours a night. By being
well rested, you'll have
more energy to achieve a
productive day.
Don't turn to sweets for
energy. Candy is only a
quick fix that will cause
your energy level to crash
and burn. Instead, eat
healthy snacks throughout
the day, like fruits and veg-
etables.
Ask family members for
help. Preparing for the hol-
idays with the family will
not only take some strain
off you, it also can be a
great way to spread holi-
day cheer.
Take an all-natural sup-


plement. Including a sup-
plement in your diet will
help you get the nutrients
your body needs to func-
tion at its best.
Focus on progress, not
perfection. Instead of
stressing over holding a
flawless dinner party or
finding immaculate gifts,
remember that what really
counts is the time you
spend cherishing your
family and friends. In addi-
tion, holiday hiccups can
always make for great sto-
ries come next holiday sea-
son.

A Christmas note


By Vincent Spada
The season is cold, and the
days grow darker, so I
thought a few words were
appropriate. I don't know if
this note will help you with
your troubles, but if it does it
will have served its purpose.
Right now, things are diffi-
cult in the world. People die
in wars and perish in storms.
It seems these things will
never end, and in truth, they
will always be with us.
Life is a hard journey, and
seldom offers anyone an easy
route. We all know this as
human beings, because
we've all been through a
tragedy in our course. It


would be wrong of me to
simply tell you to cheer up,
since some have been
through too much hardship
for that.
Rather, I will try in my
meager way to explain what
I wish we could all accom-
plish. Perhaps it will be a
pointless endeavor, but then
again, it may help a few
souls.
If possible, this Christmas
Eve, I would like you to go
outside and look up at the
North Star. Not for any reli-
giou- purposes,. bit rather,
for mere thought and reflec-
tion. Look up at the North
Star, and all the other stars


One-stroke painting

classes Jan. 14


spinning in the heavens.
Gaze upon their brightness,
and try to think of all the
good things in your life.
Think about when you were
young, and how much this
season meant to you. Think
about softer moments, which
you spent in the arms of
someone you loved. Think
about happy times, when all
your relatives still lived and
were with you, and think of
what. is to come, better days
as yet unwrapped.
And maybe, if you can do
.thi, you'll 4eql better about
your place in the universe.
Maybe you will see that this
is your time, your link in the
great chain of events. Maybe
you will realize who you are,
and what you have that
makes your life meaningful.


In all the billions of years of
creation, that one night will
belong to you. Oh, others
may follow long after you are
gone, but not yet. Not quite
yet. Out there in the cold, it
will be your hour. Your mo-
ment, and your moment
alone. And if, in that one sim-
ple instant, you can finally
appreciate what you really
possess, then maybe your
sadness will ease just a bit.
Perhaps a broken heart will
heal just a little.
So that is my hope for this
holiday, and I wish you ,,a
happy one at that. Keep your
mind open to the best of
things, for if you do they may
very well find you.
Take care of yourself and
those around you, and have a
Merry Christmas.

use caution with them. An
important distinction be-
tween plans is what per-
centage of the Medicare
drug list they cover. Some
companies cover 95% and
some only cover 73%. It is


very important to be sure
the plan you pick covers
all of your medicine. Deal

you will have a local con-
tact to call if you have a
problem.

cines through mail order
are also available.

doctor for samples until
they begin receiving it in
the mail.

nation with the SHINE
-program, has the latest in-
formation on the Medicare
drug program. Both pro-
grams are located in the
Sandlin Building at 204 NE

Keep shopping trips to
three hours or less. Long
shopping sprees lead to
impulse buying and frus-
tration.

Limit the number of
presents per person. The
fewer presents you have
to buy, the less shopping

retail stores are gearing up
for the holidays at an earli-
er time than previous years.
Consumers may be shop-
ping earlier and possibly
spending more than ever
before. However, for those
who don't want to incur a
hefty bill at the end of the
season, the holiday spirit of
giving does not necessarily
need to include extravagant
gifts. Consider gifts from
the heart and create lasting
memories for Vour faTffilv
to -.ha1e.
Families in search of in-
expensive holiday gift .al-
ternatives and activities can
use the following tips and
ideas.
Plan a family fun day.
Check local newspapers for
holiday event listings and
visit event websites for dis-
counts and coupons. Many


events offer family savings
packages that may include
kids-get-in-free days. Look
for days that offer the best
deals.
Many non-profit organi-
zations and local shelters
are in need of volunteers,
especially during the holi-
day season. Helping others
in need by assisting at a
soup kitchen, wrapping
presents or making deliver-
ies to families can be a
heartwarming and life-
changing experience that
will'never be forgotten.
SCreate a bool of coupons.
Each family member can
create a book of coupons
that may include re-
deemable items involving
household chores such as,
"One prepared dinner for
the entire family," or "Walk
the dog for a week."
Coupons can be handwrit-
ten or designed on the com-
puter.
Visit senior centers. Pre-
pare baked goods and take


them to local senior center.
Many people volunteer
their time by reading holi-
day stories and spending
time with the adults.
Prepare care packages
for overseas troops. Check
with reputable organiza-
tions for more information
on how and where pack-
ages can be sent. Popular
items may include holiday
decorations, phone cards,
instant or canned foods
and drinks, and personal
hygiene items. Also, con-
sider companies that -hip
custom-ordered care pack-
ages.
Donate to an Angel or
Giving Tree. In most cases,
a children's age and gift
wish is written on a card,
which is then hung on an
Angel Tree. For those who
wish to donate, choose a
card and then buy and do-
nate the gift to the child in
need. Many local shopping
centers and department
stores have these trees.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Have you noticed that
many of the holiday fes-
tivities are happening ear-
ly, sometime before the ac-
tual Christmas Eve and
Christmas Day? Even
Christmas week. Of
course this is partly due to
school events and many of
our parties and programs
center around our schools.
It does make it easier to
enjoy some of the occa-
sions; anyhow it gives us
more time as the real
event comes nearer to
think on the meaning of
the Christmas season. Al-
though there is much con-
:i troversy over whether it
should be Merry Christ-
mas or Happy Holidays.
Although I do write a
column as such, I'm not
1 really as a columnist, as a
columnist is mostly con-
sidered to be making a
statement, regarding opin-
i ions. In fact, when I re-
ceive my payment it says
"stringer;" that is a new
phrase to me, a term not
familiar to me in the past,
it seems to be fitting. I do
feel that it is the privilege
of whatever your religious
beliefs, you celebrate as
you see fit.
However, if it is consid-
ered Christmas as the hol-
iday, it is the birth of Jesus
that we celebrate. If any-
one believes in the birth of
Christ, it would truly be a
"Merry Christmas;" how-
ever, if it is just a celebra-
tion to you, it is certainly
your privilege to celebrate
in whatever way you de-
sire. Okay, so much for
my "opinion," thank you
for allowing me to express
it; it is your privilege, too.
I guess this is as good a
time as any to say "thank
you" to the staff of the
newspaper folks who em-
ploy me. This is truly a
great opportunity for me


to do something I really
enjoy, so many good con-
tacts with so many good
folks. Last week at the res-
idents' party at Suwannee
Valley Nursing Center a
friend whispered to me "I
enjoy your column"; that
sort of thing makes my
day and makes me want
to do better at what. I do.
Thanks to all who take the
time to say "thank you" to
me; you are the reason I
do this. (Of course I love
to do it and it is nice to do
something I enjoy doing).
The celebration of the
Christmas at the OK Corral
at Central Harhilton Ele-
mentary last week was
truly a masterpiece, under
the direction of Amber
Rowe Jones. We have ob-
served many of the per-
formances during the past
years and wonder how
they can get better, but
this one was superb. It
was fun for everyone,
Amber, the participants
and all who attended.
One child was heard to
say "I wish Mrs. Jones
could be here with us all
of the time," what a trib-
ute. It seems she is at
Central two days a week
and at the other schools
on other days. We are
sure that each member of
the staff and the children
Small benefit from the mu-
sic department and for
Amber's dedication. She
has to love what she
does, and it shows. We
thank the school system
for allowing Amber to
carry on the music de-
partment with the love
that she has for the. stu-
dents and her profession.


Thank you, Amber.
Sorry we missed the pa-
rade on Friday; heard it
was a success. The news-
papers had invited us to
the Spirit of the Suwannee
on Friday evening for din-
ner and to enjoy the per-
formance of A Christmas
Carol. It was a great
evening and we express
our appreciation for treat-
ing us to an evening of
pleasure. It was very re-
laxing and great food, a
spirit of fun for everyone.
Family and friends of
residents of Suwannee
Valley Nursing Center
celebrated with fun, fel-
lowship and food at the
chapel and activities room
at SVNC on Friday after-
noon. Each resident re-
ceived gifts and it was
great to see families and
friends come together to
laugh and visit. Tables of
special foods prepared
and served by the loving
hands of the staff were en-
joyed by everyone, as usu-
al the staff "did them-
selves proud," another
show of their love and
caring for the work they
do at SVNC. Each one is
special, each member of
the staff and each resi-
dent, and their families.
The officers of the
Jasper Women's Club
served as hostesses for the
December meeting of the
Club, they served a deli-
cious meal of soups, sal-
ads and desserts." Christ-
mas decorations through-
out the club house made it
a most festive occasion.
By the way, we are not
sure, but think you could
probably still make
arrangements for the use
of the building for an
event, at a cost of $100.
The club house is festively
decorated, all you have to
do is go in (bring your
own food and clean up af-


terwards). A special treat
was a program of Christ-
mas music performed by
William Mitchell at the pi-
ano, as only William can
make the piano talk as he
can. Thank you, officers,
for the delightful lun-
cheon and William for the
entertainment. We will be
ready for an exciting new
year for the Club. It was
announced that members
are asked to present their
entries for the art show to
be held later for judging.
We have many talented
ladies in our midst and
Verna Horne, President,
said we need their entries
so we can bring back some
blue ribbons to Hamilton
County.
'The faculty and staff of
CHE held their annual
Christmas party at the
home of Leigh Ann and
Dr. Ben Norris, on Mon-
day, of this week. There
were familiar faces and
new ones, great to see all
together who do not have
much time during the
year to socialize with each
other. It was festive and
all were able to relax and
have a good time.
In whatever way you
choose to celebrate, have a
joyous season, relax and,
enjoy the days. Those of
you who are away from
your tasks at work and
school, take time to stop
and be thankful for a time
of peace.
While completing this
column, vivid pictures
came on television, of an
explosion in New Jersey
of an apartment complex;
we know from appear-
ances that there had to be
injuries, possible deaths
and certainly property
devastation. It seems that
every time we turn on the
TV there are some horror
pictures, making us
thankful for our blessings.


We know that at the
Presbyterian Church of
Jasper, there will be a
Christmas Cantata on
Sunday morning that will
be a treat, they have been
working steadily in
preparation for this and
they truly come through

Christmas eggnog
One of the most popular drinks around
the holiday season is eggnog. History of-
fers differing versions as to the origins of
the popular holiday drink's name, but it is
likely derived from combining one of its
main ingredients, eggs, with the term
"noggin," a reference to the small, wooden
mugs used to serve drinks in European
taverns. Another popular theory offers that
eggnog got its name by combining eggs
with "grog," the term used for rum in
Colonial America. Even George Washing-
ton was a big fan of eggnog and concocted
his own recipe, featuring rye whiskey, rum
and sherry.

BASKETBALL REPORT

Trojans shoot down


Cowboys in big district win


A loud capacity-filled
Trojans gym saw the Tro-
jans take care of business
Saturday night defeating
the Madison County Cow-
boys 66-61.
Coach Patrick Murphy
did not offer a lot of words
on the game because he felt
he would have never
stopped talking about this
one. He did say, however,
that he was extremely
proud of the guys and how
they remained focused in
the midst of a close and
tough game, and with the
crowd and all, hung in
' there to get the job done
I against a very good Madi-
son County team.
The stats did not lie in
this game. Defense was go-
ing to make the difference.
The Trojans would steal the
ball 19 times and had 24
pass deflections making it
difficult for the Cowboys to
execute their offense. Three
blocks underneath certain-
ly helped with the inside
play.
Leading the way defen-
sively was Desmond
Williams getting six of
those steals and deflecting
eight passes that led to easy
baskets after four assists
from those steals by
Williams. He would also
block a shot and scored six
points for the game along
with two rebounds.
The Cowboys attacked
the boards with aggression,
but Josh Jones was up to the


task battling the Cowboys,
pulling down 10 rebounds
that resulted in 15 points
shooting 50% from the field
and 3-4 from the line. Two
assists contributed to a nice
all around game that in-
cluded three steals and
three deflections.
This game was a total
team effort by the Trojans
that was exposed by the
game total of 14 assists. The
assist leader for the Trojans
was Cam Cohen with four,
and also hit 4-7 from down-
town to record 21 points for
the game. Defensively, Co-
hen pulled down four
boards, three steals and had
two pass deflections.
In crunch time, Anthony
Stevens certainly pulled
through for the Trojans and
scored nine points with an
assist. He would also pull
down five rebounds and
had a steal along with a
pass deflection.
Other Trojans scorching
the nets were Gareth John-
son with five points, Tyrell
Claridy with five, Glenn
Sheppard with four, and
Tiwan Cooks with one
point, but he produced
three of those 14 assists.

Trojans 62 -
West Nassau 58

The Hamilton County
Trojans basketball team is
having to battle in each
game with no easy games
scheduled. Against West


The boys C-team has been getting themselves in many
close games. They are fun to watch, especially with play-
ers like. Walter Jones. He may not be the biggest player on
the court, but he makes things happen with his shooting
ability and defensive intensity.


Nassau, the Trojans would
once again find a way to
pull it out in the end,
squeaking out a 62-58 win.
Cohen would once again
lead the scoring with 16
points, and was also re-
sponsible for four assists.
Defensively, Cohen stole
the ball six times and de-
flected two passes. Cohen
also helped the Trojans
win the rebounding war in
this game pulling down
five.
The other reason for the
dominance on the boards
was Jones with 11 re-
bounds. That would lead
to 14 points, and Jones
would also hand out a key
assist. Defensively, Jones
had four steals and deflect-
ed seven passes.
Williams would do a nice
job leading the team from
the guard position with
four assists, while team-
mate Tiwan Cooks would
have three assists and de-
fensively made it tough on
the opponents deflecting
five passes and stealing
one of those. He would fin-
ish with nine points.
Sheppard would add
nine points to the score-
board while grabbing four
rebounds and deflected
two passes.
Other Trojans scoring
were Stevens with four,
Eric Jackson with five,
Claridy with three and Je-
remy Cole with two points.

Trojans fall short in
opening district play

The Trojans fell behind
FSU by 17 points with six
minutes remaining, but
came back within five
points before falling 64-55
in a game that saw the en-
tire team leave it all on the
court with every Trojan
playing hard with a pur-
pose.
Jones would lead the
team with 18 points, while
grabbing six rebounds, and
blocked two shots.
Cohen would score 13 in
this game, and grabbed
three boards and stole the
ball three times.
Williams is normally the
assist man, but would find
the range in this game con-
necting on 5-9 from the
field to score 12 points. He
would have two assists,
and had seven steals and
eight deflections that was
instrumental in the Trojans
comeback.
Scoring for the Trojans
was Cooks six, Sheppard
three, Claridy two, and
Cole one.


Josh Jones sets his sights on the basket. Against Madison, Jones turned in a solid game
pulling down 10 boards, scored 15 points, handed out two assists, stole the ball three
times and deflected three passes.


Ladies C-team

basketball action


The Hamilton County
ladies C-team have been
producing some exciting
games as of late. Leading
the way for the Lady Tro-
jans has been Jasmine
Jackson.
This exciting youngster
scored 12 points in a
come-from-behind effort
against Mayo that fell
just short when the clock


ran out. She would tally
seven points against Ft.
White, and 10 against
Georgia Christian in
wins for this talented
team.
One of the most excit-
ing players to watch on
this team is Janelle Mc-
Grew. She was unstop-
pable in Mayo and
dropped in eight points.


She has been scoring
quite a few points as of
late with four against Ft.
White and seven against
the Georgia school.
Other ladies to look out
for is Shannon Shake-
speare. She would score
six points in Ft. White in
a nice effort, and certain-
ly gets to her share of re-
bounds.


#12 Shannon Shakespeare and #11 Janelle McGrew have been making life uneasy
for opponents on the hardwood in cteam action. The ladies are having a great year
to date as a result of the play of these two young ladies.

; .


Cohen sets up for the shot. The speedster has certainly been getting his shots from
downtown to fall as of late, but defensively has been causing the opponents a lot of anx-
iety in the back court stealing the ball continuously to set up easy basket for the Trojans.


Breyon Howes grabs the rebound while Ciara Solomon looks on. The ladies are still
searching for that first win with a very young and inexperienced team. The ladies have
improved dramatically since the opening game of the season however. A recent out-
ing against a very tough Oak Hall team found the ladies in front 26-25 after three
quarters. Scoring for the Trojans was Solomon and Harrington sharing high scoring
honors with seven, W Jones with six, J. Jones with four, Curry with three, and Dye
and Alexander, each with two points.

Kindergarten students
enjoyed a trip to the Deas
Old House on Tuesday,
Dec. 6. Mr. Damon Deas, of
Deas Brothers Farm, had a
special cane-grinding activ-
ity for them. Mr. Deas and
Mr. Dan Buchanan did a
great job explaining the
cane-grinding process, as
well as growing and har-
vesting of crops, such as
cane, peas, pumpkins and
corn. They talked about the
importance of the American
farmer, a lesson we all need
to be aware of. All three
classes were given a small

back to class.

process, rocking on the
swings and rocking chairs
on the porch, and trying to
see if there were any alliga-
tors in the pond!! Thanks
again to Mr. Deas for this en-
joyable learning experience.
On Thursday, kindergart-
ners had a special treat
when Ms. Smith, who comes
from the Suwannee Region-
al Library every week to
read to them, brought won-
derful guests, Mr. and Mrs.
Santa Claus! Each student,
and some of the teachers,
had a chance to sit on San-
ta's lap and tell him their
Christmas wish. Popular
items were bikes, four
wheelers, computers, video
games and dolls.
Remember early dis-
missal for the Christmas
holidays on Friday, Dec. 16,
at 1 p.m. Students will re-
turn from the Christmas
holiday break on Tuesday,
Jan. 3, 2006. The North
Hamilton Elementary fami-
ly wishes everyone a Merry
Christmas and a Happy
New Year.
The WPAW news team at
NHE also wishes everyone
a Merry Christmas. Led by
media specialist, Ms. Zant,
they are Dawson Adams,
Brooke Burnam, Mikayla
Byrd, Zach Deas, Angelica
Gallegos, Preanna McNeal,
Kyle Newsome, Alisann
Parks, Tayler Pittman and
Garret Stout. They produce
a morning news show that
provide announcements
and facts of the day, play
the National Anthem and
lead in the pledge. Also,
birthdays are recognized,
and the menu is announced.
They rotate a variety of po-
sitions including anchor,
flag helper, cameras, auto
technicians and video tech-
nicians. In addition to the
news team, a student is cho-
sen from a class each day to
be the flag holder. "Hands-
on" learning like this is just
one way "we are changing
lives thrpygh quaity educa-
tion.," n,-, '


MainStreet would like to
thank the following for their
sponsorship of and support
for our holiday activities:
Trinity Community Hospital
for the lights in the park;
SunSations for supplying
and downtown businesses
for buying and displaying
the beautiful cedar trees that
grace the doorways of many
downtown Jasper business-
es; D&S Signs for the sign in
the park; and volunteers Sal-
ly Dodge, Tom and Dixie
Haller, Christopher Wood,
Larry Huddleston and
Cathy Jo Foster for their help
with the float and'park deco-
rations.
Of course, none of this
would be possible without
the board members: Billy
Greene, Joyce Miller, Bob
Clark and Rob Wolfe.
Thanks to all of you. This
was.MainStreet's first effort
in a while and although
there were some hiccups, we
accomplished a lot with a lit-
tle. Look for bigger things
from MainStreet in the com-
ing year.
Speaking of the park and
parade, congratulations and
thank you, Chamber of
Commerce, for a beautiful
parade and a lively park. It
was encouraging to see so
many come out for the event.
It proves that Hamilton
County residents and visi-
tors alike will support events
if given the opportunity.
I cannot tell you how
many people I have talked to
who went to Live Oak for
their Christmas festival. Part
of MainStreet's mission is to
see that money comes into
and stays in Hamilton Coun-


ty, so we will be working
closely with the Chamber on
future events, hopefully
making them bigger and bet-
ter.
Sadly, even as we plan for
events to bring people into
the county, our history is be-
ing eroded away. I watched
last week as another impor-
tant part of Jennings' history
disappeared. The Jennings
Stables has been disassem-
bled and removed from its
location behind the old bank.
In my lifetime, I've wit-
nessed the destruction of at
least six historic buildings in
downtown Jennings. These
were all destroyed for one
reason or another, but ulti-
mately because the owner
failed to see that although
the buildings were privately
owned, they were a part of
the public realm as well.
They created a sense of Jen-
nings as a place. Today, Jen-
nings is largely defined by
empty sand lots and pine
trees. This is the downtown,
not back in the woods some-
where.
Due to serendipity, and lit-
tle more, there are a few of
the older buildings remain-
ing. You may wonder why I
consider these old buildings
more important than the
new ones. Well, look at
them. They possess a char-
acter that is unachievable in
Jennings today. The cost' of
replicating that character is
out of reach of folks who
would build in Jennings. It
just isn't economically feasi-
ble.
In Jasper, we are in danger
of losing a corner building
on Hatley Street. When most

look at it, they see a danger-
ous heap, ready to fall down
at any minute, an eyesore
that needs to be taken down.
It definitely does need to be
gutted and cleaned up. At
the same time, I see intricate
and beautiful brickwork on
the front, a building that
blends in and accents the
other typical brick buildings
around it, very intact walls
that need only minor repairs,
and a lot of potential. If we
could see under the facade of
the rest of that building, we
would see the same brick-
work, since it is part of the
same original building.
If the new owners are
planning to put a new build-
ing in its place, it would be
much cheaper to shore up
the walls and rebuild in the
interior. Using local labor, it
could be done at a fraction of
the cost of erecting a new
building of similar quality.
Of course, there are other
options available to the own-
er of the corner lot: a build-
ing of inferior quality (metal,
vinyl? Urg!);' a parking lot
(not appropriate for a corner
lot in downtown, especially
when we have so much
empty space already!); a
grassy lot or park (again, we
have enough empty space al-
ready!). Which of these op-
tions do you champion? If
you would like to see the
building preserved call the
building department and
register your concern at 792-
1060. If you would prefer it
be torn down, and hope that
someone will build some-
thing great there, then don't
hold your breath.
MainStreet believes that
this building and others like
it are key elements in draw-
ing people into Hamilton
County, in keeping alive tan-
gible memories of our her-
itage, and in maintaining
beautiful streetscapes. We
can't save them all, but with
your help, we can try. If you
are interested in being in-
volved call 938-2273 or email

White Springs


S By Johnn

An annual visitor to our
flat woods and along the
banks of the Alapaha,
Suwannee, and Withla-
coochee, paid us a visit
late Sunday night and
early Monday morning.
"Mr. Jack Frost," who
makes his visits in late
November or early to mid
December, was out for all
to see in "all his white
glory." He was clinging
to palmettos, pines, and
every rooftop in the area.
Driving up SR 6 on
Monday morning was a
beautiful white ride, as I
enjoyed the changing
landscape provided by
"Mr. Jack Frost." Each
season provided by our
Maker has beauty for us
to bless our hearts and
give thanks. You may ask,
"Why should I give
thanks for cold weather?"
Give thanks because you
can experience it. If you
can see it, feel it, touch it,
taste it or hear it give
praise to God. There are
many that cannot. Re-
member, "God is good all
the time."
The Festival of Lights
and Christmas Celebra-
tion held in White
Springs on Saturday, Dec.
10, was a huge success.
The town looked beauti-
ful all bedecked in Christ-
mas finery. Everal and
Sybil Allen, Jennings,
Amanda's parents and
Laura's maternal grand-
parents, graciously
loaned us their vintage
1965 Delta 88 Oldsmobile.
Our family entered it in
the parade for "Bullard
Farms" with Jerry
Lawrence driving, me
riding "shotgun," and
Laura Leigh, along with
our cousins, Kaylee and
Kamdyn Kvistad, daugh-
ters of John and Machon
Kvistad, riding on the
hood throwing out candy.
It was bedecked with
flashing white lights, sil-
ver tinsel garland and
three of the prettiest girls
east of the Mississippi,
throwing candy to the pa-
rade spectators and
shouting "Merry Christ-
mas!!! Keep Christ in
Christmas!"
Another notable parade
participant was 88-year-
old Mrs. Rosalie Fisher.
Rosalie was riding in the
New Bethel A.M.E. vehi-
cle. She has the distinc-
tion of being the oldest
living member of New
Bethel A.M.E. Merry
Christmas to Mrs. Fisher
and God bless you.


y Bullard


Mrs. Rosalie's mother,
the late Queenie Fisher,
was famous for her own-
ership of the historic
"Bone Yard." It was a fa-
mous tourist attraction
for many years in White
Springs. This family has
been in White Springs,
since "Moby Dick was a
minnow."
Many thanks to the
Town of White Springs
for all their hard work
and to the staff of Stephen
Foster. Never have I seen
the park look any better
than it did on Saturday
night. Many thanks to
Martha Nelson for coordi-
nating the Christmas con-
cert. A marvelous job.
Performers included Lu-
cindagail Maynard and
me of White Springs,
Brent and Vickie Stake,
Jacksonville, and Amanda
Bullard. .In Nelly Bly's
Kitchen, volunteers
served enough hot dogs,
cookies and cokes to feed
"Pharaoh's army." Our
appreciation is extended
to all who made the entire
Christmas event a suc-
cess:
Speaking of success, I
would like to take this op-
portunity to congratulate
the Telford Hotel staff,
for their tremendous suc-
cess in providing great
holiday parties. Mama
and I lunched there on
Saturday, and a big group
of the Red Hat Society
ladies were lunching. Jim
King, the chef at the
Telford, related to us the
news of many holiday
gatherings. If anyone ever
wants to host a tea for
someone, the Telford is
the place, and Mrs. Lyras
is your lady. We are so
fortunate to have such a
nice hotel in our town.
We are doubly blessed to
have the wonderful pro-
prietors who are, in my
opinion among the "top."
They do so much to make
our little community -
"way down upon the
Suwannee River," a won-
derful place to live.
Happy birthday wishes
go out to Mrs. John C.
"Ercel" Camp, Jasper, on
Dec. 18. We wish Mrs.
Camp many more happy
birthdays. Even though
Mr. and Mrs. Camp reside
in Jasper, we know they
are now, and will always
be a part of our beloved
White Springs. The histo-
ry of the Camp Family in
Florida is synonymous
with our town especially
the First Baptist Church .


Rhett Bullard, local at-
torney who practices in
Live Oak but is a White
Springs native, was a del-
egate. to the Florida De-
mocratic Convention in
Orlando this past week-
end. Rhett is very active
in state Democratic poli-
tics, and I am proud he
was representing our
beloved Hamilton Coun-
ty.
The cement benches
placed all around the
Town of White Springs
look very nice. To
whomever is responsible
- thank you. These bench-
es are a very nice addition
to our lovely town.
Our sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of
Mr. Starling Daniels, Mar-
ion Station-Jasper and to
the family of Anthony
Whetstone of Jennings.
The families have the
prayers of our White
Springs community.
Bertha Yulee Johnson,
Midway-Jasper, is one of
my favorite individuals.
Bertha and I worked to-
gether for a number of
years at Central. She is
faithful in keeping me
supplied with Memorial
Day Poppies each year, as
she is an active member
of the Bryant-Phillips
American Legion Auxil-
iary. Bertha phoned to in-
quire as to my well-being.
Bertha's concern was gen-
uine and I do appreciate
her so very much. She is
one of the reasons each
week that I end my col-
umn with "have a good
week, Hamilton County -
I love you." I really do.
If you have an opportu-
nity, come to the Christ-
mas Musical presented by
the choir of First Baptist
Church, White Springs,
on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 11
a.m., or to the 6 p.m. ser-
vice and enjoy the Chil-
dren's Musical Program
or, if you would like to at-
tend a beautiful candle-
light service, that will be
held on Sunday, Dec. 18,
at 6 p.m., at White


Springs United Methodist
Church.
The Baptist Church in
White Springs will be
having services on Christ-
mas morning, Dec. 25, be-
ginning at 10:30 a.m.
Christmas is the birthday
of Jesus. It is the one day
each year, when churches
should be opened for a
service, regardless of the
day. We won't be having
Sunday School or evening
services. If any other
churches in the area
would like for me to post
their Christmas Day ser-
vice times, call me at 397-
2205 and, if I am not at
home, leave a message. I
will need this news by
Friday, Dec. 16, as I will
"go to press" on Monday,
Dec. 19, by noon.
Please remember the
following in prayer: Vir-
ginia Daniel, Virginia
Chandler, J.M. Morgan,
Frank McPherson, Ben
Register, Gladys

mie Smith, Franklin

Quote for the week: "I
saw Mama kissing Santa
Claus underneath the
mistletoe last night. She
didn't hear me creep.
Down the stairs to take a
peek. She thought that I
was tucked in -In my
bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw Mama tickle
Santa Claus underneath
his beard so snowy white.
What a sight it would
have been if Daddy had
only seen Mama kissing
Santa Claus last night."
Have a good week,
Hamilton County I love
you.


Ann Hilliard


achieves National


Board Certification


Ann Hilliard
Ann Hilliard of Jasper
has achieved National
Board for Professional
Teaching Standards
(NBPTS) Certification in
Early Adolescence Eng-
lish/Language Arts, an
honor earned by fewer
than 34% of professional
educators who complete
the program.
According to the NBPTS
website, "National Board
Certification measures a
teacher's practice against
high and rigorous stan-
dards through an exten-
sive series of perfor-
mance-based assess-
ments, which includes
teaching portfolios, stu-
dent work samples,
videotapes or DVDs and
thorough analyses of the
candidate's teaching and
the students' learning.
The process involves
written exercises that
probe the depth of a can-


didate's subject-matter
knowledge, as well as his
or her understanding of
how to teach those sub-
jects.
Teachers who have par-
ticipated in National
Board Certification have
overwhelmingly stated it
is the most powerful pro-
fessional development ex-
perience of their careers.
NBCTs are making posi-
tive changes in class-
rooms, school districts
and the larger education
community. The recogni-
tion, visibility, new roles
and growth of the num-
bers of NBCTs are affect-
ing not only their class-
rooms, but also the cul-
ture of their schools."
Hilliard teaches sixth
grade at Lowndes Middle
School near Valdosta. She
is married to Rev. Doug
Hilliard, pastor of Jasper
Presbyterian Church.

For aging adults, depression does

not need to be part of the picture
Depression does not go hand in hand with aging. In fact, older adults who are able to
stay engaged in day-to-day living and find simple joys to fill their days can go a long way
toward avoiding the debilitating effects of depression.
As .Dr. Kathie Bates, associate professor of psychology at Argosy University/Tampa
explains, "Positive activities and experiences for older adults should be a part of each day,
and they can be as simple as enjoying watching birds outside the window, to more
effortful pastimes such as finishing a craft or household project." The key, says Bates, is to
accomplish small tasks successfully and put aside more difficult ones until they no longer
seem so challenging.
The best way to find out what makes an older adult happy is to be a good listener.
"Listening to the person's concerns and providing support rather than advice or
ultimatums generally has a more positive influence," she says.
According to Bates, listening includes identifying what an older adult is concerned
about as well as what they would like to be doing to feel better, rather than imposing a
family member's ideas and values on the person. For example, an individual who has led a
rather solitary life is more likely
to respond to an offer to pick up
% a book on tape for them from
i '" '^ the library than an offer to take
^f ..''.^.s 'f i Bthem to a senior center for
bingo.
As adults age, they experience
a loss of roles (for example,
..Xbeing the Mom or Dad), loved
--- ones and sometimes physical
-- capabilities, and with these
.. ..ii losses there is often
understandable sadness. But,
says Dr. Lynn Horne-Moyer,
.,, ,**. director of clinical training and
....'.. associate professor, at Argosy
University/Atlanta, "most older
adults adjust to these difficulties relatively quickly."
When older adults do become depressed, they often express it differently than younger
adults. They may complain of fatigue or lack of interest in usual activities rather than
displaying tearfulness or crying. For these reasons, depression is often under-diagnosed
because its symptoms can overlap with those of other illnesses that become more common
in late life.
The most common signs of more serious depression, according to Horne-Moyer, are
sadness, irritability, hopelessness, worthlessness, dropping activities, pessimism or a
preoccupation with death. All of these, she explains, should be treated very seriously and
aggressively, with a mental health professional contacted immediately.
Unfortunately, many older adults feel that there i-, a sligima allached to seeking help --
eien through support groups. According to Bates, mental lheilh sern ices designed solely\
for older adults are rare, which may further discouiL.ic tielem ft "intI elkiLi' .k help Foi.i mld
levels of depression, psychotherapy, support groups. oi01 both tlc'i.cli. c. help ii .i. midini
the need for medication. Once the depression symptoms reach a severe level medication is
often needed.
There is some research to suggest, Bates adds, that the way in which older adults cope
with the challenges of aging may be best predictor of how susceptible they will be to
depression. Individuals who stay flexible and adapt to their changing needs fare better. In
fact, positive planning for retirement, which includes activities and interests to focus on,
as well as staying an active and involved member of the community, can be very
beneficial to healthy aging.
With the right support systems in place, most older adults can find considerable joy and
satisfaction in this new stage of life. Here are several expert recommendations for h.-lping
older adults live happier, healthier lives:
Family connections are most important for most adults, including a spouse, and
children and siblings. Extended family plays a more vital role in minority families, with
more help provided by elders and for elders within the family.
Physical activity/exercise has been shown to be helpful in combating depression for
those who are able to do so. A medical doctor should always be consulted before
beginning any exercise program.
Avoid excessive TV viewing.
Local area agencies on aging are a good source of information for older adults and
their families. They can provide lists of resources available for at-home care, food
delivery and companionship. In addition there are local senior centers, hospitals and
wellness centers.
Private case management services offered by social workers in many communities,
and counselors and therapists may be located through state psychological associations,
counselor associations and associations of social workers.

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
My brother-in-law always has to add
his two cents on everything. When
my 1982 Toyota Celica blew a head
gasket, he told me that I'd be lucky to
get someone to tow it away.
However, I heard that once a car
becomes 25 years old, it's consid-
ered a classic and worth a lot more
money. So I figure I should get it
fixed and then try to sell it for a prof-
it. My musclehead brother-in-law
says I'm just wasting my money and
that there's no such rule about
classic cars. I'd just love
to prove him wrong and
deflate his ego. Can you
guys explain to him that
my car will be a classic by
next year?

Cash: Unfortunately, the only things
you may be deflating are the tires on
your car.
Carry: There is no hard-set rule that a
car becomes a classic at 25 years old. If
that were the case, a lot of people would
be buying 24-year-old cars and waiting
to celebrate at New Years.
Cash: In fact, most people can't even
agree on how to define "classic". The
Classic Car Club of America only con-
siders cars from 1925 to 1948 to be clas-


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


2005 The Classified Guys


sics. Others consider cars like the 1957
Chevy or 1966 Corvette to be classics.
Carry: In your case, you're concerned
with the car's overall value. Most cars
depreciate the day after they are pur-
chased. Their age and normal everyday
wear and tear ultimately erode the car's
value. In rare cases when there is con-
sumer demand, the value of a car can
appreciate as it gets older.
Cash: It's difficult for most people to
predict which cars will become more
valuable over time. For instance, not
many expected the Ford "Edsel" to
become a classic. It flopped when it was
introduced in 1957, but is considered by


many today to be a collector's car.
Carry: Although possible, it's unlikely
that your 1982 Toyota Celica will ever
fall into the "classic" category. It cur-
rently has a blue book value of around
$1500 provided it's in excellent working
condition. Considering itneeds a new
head gasket and maybe a few other
repairs due to its age, it's probably not
worth spending money on the car, espe-
cially as an investment.
Cash: Now if you're still set on prov-
ing your brother-in-law wrong, you
could wait another 25 years to see if the
car appreciates in value. Although by
then, his ego may have deflated by itself.

Downsizing
If you thought your economy sedan
was small, you should try driving the
Peel P50. According to the Guinness
Book of World Records, it is the small-
est street legal car ever put into produc-
tion. At a length of only 53 inches long,
and a width of just over 3 feet, it's
smaller than the average bumper car at
a fair. Although manufactured from
1962 to 1965 in the United Kingdom, it
was not a big seller. Most drivers found
it to be too noisy, unstable and
cramped.
Modeled to a T
When the automobile was first pro-
duced in the 1890's by companies such
as Diamler Motors and Peugeot, it had
an unbelievable price of $2000 to
$3000, a small fortune for that time
period. It wasn't until the introduction
of the Ford Model T in 1908 that the car
became affordable to the masses.
Anyone could purchase a Ford for
around $950. As Ford honed his
assembly line techniques, the car's price
dipped as low as $280. Nearly
15,500,000 were sold in the United
States alone. .

Men in Blue
A few weeks ago, I met my new
neighbor, Ralph. It turns out he's a
nut for old cars and actually owns a
beautifully restored police cruiser
from the 1930's.
It was the most unique antique car
I had ever seen. How many people
do you know own a police cruiser,
aside from the police?
When I joked with him about the
rarity of the car, he told me he knows
quite a few people in the area who
own antique police cruisers. "That's
amazing," I said to him. "Do you
guys ever get together?"
"Every month," he laughed, "at the
donutshop!"
