Leila Gaston


Leila Gaston will turn 100 years old on Jan. 12 but she
will celebrate her centennial birthday at 2 p.m. on Jan. 7 at
the Suwannee Valley Nursing Center in Jasper. All of her
family and friends are invited to commemorate this mo-
mentous occasion with her.
Mrs. Gaston was born Jan. 12, 1906, in Lowndes County,
Ga. She married Moval E. Parker, who is now deceased,
and they had three children: Lloyd Parker of Olive Branch,
Miss., Doris Tuten of Greenville, Fla., and Dorothy Jean
(Jeanie) Barnes of Valdosta, Ga. Mrs. Gaston has been
blessed with nine grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren
and 12 great-great grandchildren.
Early in life Mrs. Gaston mastered the art of sewing. She
did alterations for business and private clients, enabling
her to rear her children. She has been a great example and
inspiration for all her family and there are many examples
of her work among family and friends.
Later in life she married Walt Gaston, who is also de-
ceased. During this time, Mrs. Gaston managed a board-
ing house in Valdosta for many years. In the spring and
summer, her flower gardens were enjoyed by all. She also
had a great love of fishing and never turned down a fish-
ing trip.
In 1997, Mrs. Gaston moved to Hamilton County to live
with her daughter, Doris. There she had time to enjoy her
love of flowers and needlework.
Mrs. Gaston now lives a the Suwannee Valley Nursing
Center. She is a member of Francis Lake Baptist Church,
Lake Park, Ga.

DEP encourages

Christmas tree

recycling


The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion is encouraging Florid-
ians to recycle their tree af-
ter the holiday. Floridians
buy several hundred
thousand Christmas trees
each holiday season. Be-
fore recycling a Christmas
tree, remove all tinsel and
ornaments. Some other
suggestions include:
Place the tree in the yard
or garden for use by birds
and other wildlife.. The
branches provide shelter
from strong winds and
cold. Additionally, food
can be supplied by hang-
ing fruit slices, seed cakes,
or suet bags on its branch-
es or smearing peanut
butter and seeds in pine
cones and hang them, in
the tree.
Prune off the branch-
es and place the boughs
over perennials as win-


ter mulch.
Chip the tree and use as
mulch around trees,
shrubs, or in flower beds.
If you can't use the tree
yourself, contact local gov-
ernment offices or your
sanitation service. Most
communities have some
type of Christmas tree dis-
posal program. Some have
central collection areas,
while others collect the
trees at curbside.
Conservation groups
may provide other op-
tions. Some hunting and
fishing groups collect
trees and use them to pro-
vide habitat for fish and
wildlife.
For many, selecting and
decorating the Christmas
tree is one of the high-
lights of the holiday sea-
son. After the holidays, re-
cycle your tree and pro-
long its usefulness.


Use indoor-

propane heaters

for warmth

and safety


When winter storms
blow in, a great way to ride
out a potential power out-
age in warm safety is to use
a portable propane heater
approved for indoor use.
An indoor-safe heater,
which operates on small,
one pound disposable
propane cylinders, can help
* eliminate the threat of car-
bon monoxide poisoning.
However, be sure to read
all product packaging care-
fully to find out if it's safe
to use indoors. As an extra
precaution, it's best to fol-
low the manufacturer's
ventilation instructions.
Some products, such as
portable propane camp
stoves, heaters, lanterns
and grills, are designed to
be used outdoors, in freely
ventilated areas. These
should never be used in-
side, especially while sleep-
ing. They will burn and


consume oxygen for com-
bustion and give off carbon
monoxide (CO), reducing
the blood's ability to carry
oxygen, which could create
low oxygen levels. This
might lead to loss of con-
sciousness or even death.
Whether you use outdoor
portable propane products
outside, or indoor-safe
heaters inside to keep
warm during a winter
storm, always read all
packaging, operating in-
structions and safety guide-
lines carefully before oper-
ating.
For a free safety brochure
about the different types of
portable propane heaters
and other products, contact
the Coalition for Portable
Propane Product Safety at
1-888-226-7487 or visit
www.propaneproducts.org
or write to P.O. Box 45002,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor,
Following is a copy of a letter I sent to the Suwannee
River Water Management District (SRWMD):
I find it completely unbelievable that without public
hearing or substantiated research that you would close the
premier ORV (off-road vehicle) area in North Florida. This
is obviously due to special interests of a few local land
owners and with complete disregard to the public interest
and right to land use.
I have been using ORVs in the river bed for many years,
camping with my sons and now grandson. We have many
fond memories of the Alapaha. I feel that because a few
bad apples would ride up the river banks on to private
land and cause erosion coupled with SRWMD's inability
to enforce the rules, that this became a quick easy fix.
Unfortunately for those who respect the land such as the
many Off Road clubs around the state, you have now re-
moved the main source of our recreational hobby. Did you
even consider many of us carry out trash that others leave
there every time we visit the river, in order to hope to pre-
serve our right to use the area? Most areas of the country

would have posted and held hearings with the public to
form a team to find out the best use for all concerned and
still protect the environment. There is no room for dicta-
torship style of management in this country.
If in fact as Jon Dinges says that resource protection is of
highest priority then why within SRWMD lands are there
so many wetlands being filled in by construction of roads
. and parking lots? My guess would be because of the mon-
ey that would be generated from these types of .projects
outweighs, the need of protection of a swamp or:stream.
Where as the recreational ORV user is an easy opponent to
shut out without concern.
I ask you reconsider your moves and ask for public in-
put. Has any thought been given to perhaps issuing per-
mits and rules. Those who break the rules have their per-
mits suspended? I assure you there are many ORV users
. who respect the land and create as little impact as possi-
ble.

Dear Editor,
The property owners of Hamilton County should be
aware of the rules and regulations affecting unincorporat-
ed real property, which have been adopted by our county
commissioners. These rules and regulations were adopted
locally, but formulated outside our county.


It


If you own property which does not adjoin a county
road, then the value of your property is adversely affected
and the use of your land is limited. You can check for
yourself how many county commissioners, once elected,
fail to get a county road to their property or fail to pave
that road. Therefore, these rules and regulations that affect
some of us, you can bet do not apply to them.
I am an absentee property owner of a fourth generation
farm family, and until I decided to sell my property, was
never notified or had any knowledge of these regulations.
Regulations which drastically affect the use and value of
privately owned land should be decided by a majority and
not by a few, and certainly not by people who do not even
own property in our county.
I encourage you to investigate these rules especially if
you own property which does not adjoin a county road.
The regulations will only get tougher, not more relaxed.
You are affected and they apply to you, and some of them
are unreasonable. These regulations enhance the value of
property which adjoins a county road and adversely affect
the value of property which does not. They were formu-

What is Christmas?

What is Christmas? Is it endless shopping, a depleted
checking account or an overload on your credit card? Is
it a Christmas tree, candy canes, wreaths, bells or toys?
Is it. the Christmas music that you hear in the malls that
is supposed to put you in the mood to spend money? Is
it a picture with Santa, office parties or holiday breaks?
Is Christmas a family gathering around a Christmas
dinner? Is it a Christmas Cantata, carol singing or a tra-
ditional Christmas movie?
A Biblical and Christ-centered Christmas is about
mankind needing to be rescued and needing to be
saved. Christmas is God giving His Son to the world
and His Son. giving Himself for our sins, "For God so
loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but
have everlasting life."
For those seeking to know the true meaning of Christ-
mas, the Christ of Christmas stands ready to share the
true meaning of His birth, life, death and resurrection.
Have you really considered the reason for the season?
Is there room in Christmas for the real gift of Christ-
mas? When you know Christ as your savior, you can
say with the apostle Paul and all those who have re-
ceived Him, "Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable
gift;'" ,, 'i I':- : .. i, .p.. n ,

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Hello! When you read
this you will probably be
getting ready to celebrate
the beginning of a new
year. As I have told you
before, I do not make New
Year Resolutions. I just
promise you that I will try
to be faithful to bring you
good news as I can receive
it. My hope is that you
will continue to reach out
to me as I want to do to
you, so that you can re-
ceive the pleasure that
comes to me with the con-
tacts with the people I
care about. Thank you for
allowing me to come into
your homes in this way.
It has been a glorious
Christmas Season during
the past days. We have
been reminded through
the many worshipful oc-
casions of the "reason for


KT


the season," and been
made aware of the "birth-
day celebration" and the
true meaning of this time
of the year. It is my hope
that it has been a mean-
ingful time of the year for
you. We know that sad-
ness has come to some,
making it a difficult time
for you, it is hoped that
you will feel the peace
that can come to you dur-
ing difficult times.
We had the privilege of
attending the service at
Harvest Fellowship on
Sunday, Dec. 18, for a pre-
sentation by various
members of their congre-
gation, along with music
presented by their talent-
ed choir and musical fam-
ily. It was a beautiful time
and it was good to see
Pastor Jerry Thomason


feeling better after having
a difficult time with surgi-
cal problems. They have a
wonderful congregation
and it was good to wor-
ship with them.
We missed the morning
worship service at our
First Presbyterian Church,
but have had glowing re-
ports of the Cantata pre-
sented by our choir, under
the direction of Harvey
Oehlert. Harvey has been
such an important part of
our church over the years,
being asked to "fill in" for
us shortly after he came to
Jasper as band director at
Jasper High School (we
remember because he and
Pat came the same year
we did). Shortly after he
came to Jasper, they were
at First Baptist, but some
of our school staff per-
suaded Harvey to "help
us out" when Ed and June
Montgomery left. He has
been faithful ever since,
and Pat later joined him in
the choir. The church .is
fortunate to have them,


SPELLING BEE WINNERS:


and to have Jo Coe as pi-
anist (she also started in
1959) and Peggy Mc-
Cormick was already ac-
tive as organist and is still
serving. They give gener-
ously of their time and tal-
ents with great dedica-
tion.
Pastor Doug Hilliard is
the preacher. Many in the
church give of themselves
without monetary com-
pensation and do it with
Christian love for which
the congregation is grate-
ful. I will take this oppor-
tunity to publicly thank
them and when you at-
tend our services, you will
understand. The Taylor
family has joined our con-
gregation and each of
them has added much to
the life of our Church.
Abbey is doing a super
job with our children and
if you haven't heard them
on the bells you have real-
ly missed a treat. Come
and hear them.
On Sunday evening, the
Presbyterian Church
youth presented the
Christmas Story (under
the talented direction of
Abbey Taylor) giving a
special rendition of the
story of the birth of Jesus.
Following this everyone
went to the Fellowship
Hall for "finger foods" all
manner of food prepared
by the faithful ones of the
church. Everyone eagerly
looking forward to the
specialties of the regular
contributors, certain deli-
cacies always expected,
and Jennie Hughes can al-
ways be counted on to do
her special punch. Follow-


ing the feast, Santa came
to distribute gifts to all the
children, and the day be-
gan to wind down.
We know that many
churches celebrated the
candlelight services on
Christmas Eve, as did the
Presbyterians, this is al-
ways the most special
time to turn our hearts to
the real meaning of
Christmas and this year
was no exception, with the
pastor serving commu-
nion and bringing a mes-
sage, and music by the
choir. Then wishing
friends a Merry Christ-
mas, and going their way
to be ready for Church
service the next morning.
Don't you think it is spe-
cial to attend church on
Christmas morning; I like
it when Christmas falls on
Sunday.
We had the privilege of
joining family and friends
at the home of Rex and
Karen Mitchell on Christ-
mas Eve before the church
service (some come for the
second shift after church.).
Ron and Pam Snyder
Mitchell and their- son
Brandon had been here
earlier but had left to re-
turn to their home in Sop-
erton to prepare for the
trip to North Carolina to
be with Ron's family.
Christmas Day I joined
my family, Marybeth,
Kaleb and Jordan, and
Leigh Ann's parents,
Richard and Ann Shep-
ard, to have Christmas
dinner at the home of Dr.
Ben and Leigh Ann, Trey
and Kaleigh, with all the
traditional foods. The


Shepards returned to
Sycamore, Ga. Ann had
been with them for a
week, during Trey's
surgery to have his tonsils
removed, and life has
been slowly returning to a
quieter time, with plans to
get ready to start back to
work and school. We hope
that it has been a special
time for you.
We are trying to get this
ready for the newspaper,
so the staff will have some
time to pull it together
and get ready to start
again. We hope to have
more to share with you
next week. In the mean-
time happy New Year to
each of you. Thank you
for your support during
the past year; help me to
make it an even better for
you in 2006.
We know you have been
busy, as all of us, but take
time to call and give me
your news, I want this to
be for you, although it is a
pleasure for me to have
this contact with you.
When someone tells me
they enjoy my column,
my answer is that I enjoy
doing this and am thank-
ful for the opportunity to
be in contact with friends
through this media. Thank
the newspaper for the op-
.portunity to be in contact
with you, allowing me to
do something that brings
me joy and you tell me to
give you joy.
Again, a happy New
Year, we will be with you
during the coming year,
keep in touch.

Christmas is over and a
New Year looms ahead.
What resolutions will you
make for 2006? The New
Year will offer its share of
agony and ecstasy, as all
years do. Be sure and add
to your luck next Sunday
by eating your black-eyed
peas, rice and greens of
some kind. Make sure that
a man and not a woman is
the first to walk through
your door on New Year's

lifetime White Springs res-

vorably known by all who
knew her and were blessed
by her sweet, kind nature.
We will miss her, and our
prayers and sympathy are
extended to her family
during this their time of
sorrow.
I have enjoyed all the


lights in Patricia and Mari-
ah Harrington's yard this

lot of time decorating, and
I want them to know that
the fruits of their labors
have been appreciated. I
hope they all had a very
Merry Christmas and a
happy New Year!!!

let's keep them here and
give them our support and

County.

book, visit some Web sites,
join a support group, seek
counseling, take a course. All
these resources will give you
the support you need so you
don't have to go through it
alone.
Remind yourself. Visual
cues will help you stay fo-
cused. Wrap a loose rubber
band around your finger. Post
a picture on the refrigerator.
Creative reminders will help
keep you on target.
Stay positive. Negative
thinking will get you
nowhere. Don't beat yourself
up if you make a mistake or
are taking a little longer than
you thought to achieve your
goal. Instead, focus on your
success and happiness.
Don't overextend yourself.
In short, don't make too many
resolutions at one time. In-
stead, focus on one, maybe


two goals that you strongly
want to accomplish.
Plan. Think about how you
will achieve your goals, and
plan for them accordingly. If
you want to give up your
morning donut, keep cereal
on hand for breakfast instead.
Set realistic goals. Make
resolutions that you can really
attain. Break them down into
small steps, and assess what
steps can be taken to reach
those goals.
Achieve goals slowly. You
don't have to give up smok-
ing and coffee on the same
day. Take small steps over the
course of time.'
Remain flexible. Don't just
give up on a resolution if it is-
n't working. Modify it. If you
can't exercise five times a
week, try to exercise three
times a week. It's okay to
make adjustments to your res-
olution as long as you still
stick with it.

Drink and

sing to times

gone by
A tradition of New Year's
celebrations is sipping cham-
pagne at the start of the new
year. In addition, many join in
chorus to sing "Auld Lange
Syne," a song which has be-
come synonymous with the
holiday. And while the song is
quite famous and known
around the world, only a hand-
ful actually know the words,
(humming along and joining
in for the chorus), and far few-
er actually know the signifi-
cance of the song's message.
The song is actually a tran-
scription by poet Robert Bums
of an old Scottish ballad. The
lyrics are written in a classic
dialect and basically com-
memorate friendship, fellow-
ship and hope. The song is
sung at gatherings where the
past is remembered and a good
future is anticipated. Auld
Lang Syne roughly translates
to old long ago.
If you are interested in
singing along this year with
* the rest of the crowd, follow-
ing are the first few verses to
"Auld Lang Syne" from
Bums' version of the ballad.
AULD LANG
SYNE
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
: And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!
S or auld lang syne, my dear,
,or auld lang syne,

Baby Boomers:

Learn about Osteoporosis
Until recently no one gave much thought to the topic of bone health.
Occasionally you would hear of someone who broke a hip and was never
the same again. As more and more research is being conducted, doctors
are passing on the word to patients that it is vital to take preventative
measures to ensure bone health, to preserve quality of life and increase
life expectancy.

RECOGNIZING THE DISEASE


Osteoporosis affects both men and women and is not just a
"grandmother's disease." It is a condition characterized by a decrease in
bone mass and
density, causing
bones to become
fra gile. Those
suffering from
osteoporosis are
much more likely .
than othe s to break
bones following even
minor bumps and
falls. The disease can
limit mobility, and
lead to a downward
spiral in physical
health and the quality
of life. The ability to
walk, stand up or take a sr o
care of oneself may
be lost following an
osteoporotic fracture.
According to a
National Institute of
Health report, one in
five patients dies
within a year after
. -sustaining ... an ,
osteoporotic hip
. fracture. Therefore,
Detecting Exercise and healthy eating are preventative
osteoporosis and measures you can take to ensure bone health.
charting a course of
treatment is crucial.


PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

There are many steps you can take to ensure bone health. Here are a few
recommendations from the Surgeon General and Wallach Surgical, the
distributors of Sunlight Omnisense, an ultrasound-based osteoporosis
testing device:
Eat a diet high in calcium and Vitamin D. Calcium can be found in
dairy products like milk, cheeses, and yogurt and in green leafy
vegetables and soybeans. Vitamin D is produced in the skin by exposure
to the sun, but can also be found in fortified milk and other foods.
Supplements may also be beneficial to boost calcium and Vitamin D
intake.

Inactive individuals are at risk for osteoporosis because exercise is
important to maintain healthy bones. Exercise regularly about 30
minutes per day and include weight-bearing exercises in your fitness
routine to improve strength and balance.

OSTEOPOROSIS SCREENINGS

Your physician should regularly look for the warning signs of
osteoporosis, including low-trauma bone fractures and back pain from
undetected vertebral fractures. A bone-density test with a device approved
for bone monitoring should be performed regularly. It is not advisable to
wait until age 65 for such testing since every year left untreated increases
the risk.

Screenings can typically be done in the privacy of your doctor's office.
Diagnostic instruments such as the Omnisense bone sonometer are non-
invasive, involving only a small ultrasound device that sends a
soundwave across the bones in your wrist or finger. The speed of the
ultrasound wave indicates bone strength, and your osteoporosis status. No
radiation is present, and the procedure is painless. Your doctor will be
able to view a full-color report and share the results with you within 10
minutes at a cost of $40 to $50 for those under 65. If you are over 65, the
procedure is covered by Medicare in most cases. With the treatment
options available today, your doctor can set you on a path to improve your
bone strength. It's a small price to pay for adding years of healthy bones
to your life.

Omnisense technology, visit www.healthyboneinfo.com.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS DECEMBER 28-29, 2005, PAGE 3D


* CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA


Dear Classified Guys,
My boyfriend and I dated for several
years and we always found ourselves
sitting on the couch on New Year's
Eve watching the ball drop. This year
I took the initiative and bought tick-
ets for a great party well in advance.
It cost me over $500 for the pair, but
it was well worth it to know we
wouldn't haveto sit at home again.
Now for the problem. My boyfriend
and I broke up a few weeks ago. Now
I'm faced with a New Year's dilemma.
Should I try to sell the tickets in the
classified (they are worth $500) or
should I place a personal ad to find a
very happy first date? I need
some good gambling .1
advice. Which do you y
think has better odds of -
happening before New
Years?
*


Carry: With the party only a week
away, you really are the gambling type.
Cash: It's a tough call to say which
would be quicker. Tickets for a "sold
out" New Year's Eve party would be in
high demand. Then again, what guy
would pass up the chance to go on a
date where everything is already
planned?
Carry: Before you place all your


Gm Al

& Todd "Carry" Holze

@2005 The Classified Guys


chips on one bet, why not try both? If
you're truly not interested in going to
the party, place an ad to sell the tickets.
At this late hour, there's still a woman
trying to pry the remote out of her hus-
band's hand and get him to take her out
for the evening. I know my wife is try-
ing!
Cash: And if you're truly a gambler,
there's nothing like taking a chance on
a New Year's Eve first date. You just
never know who you will find. If
you're worried about the cost, you
could even ask him to split the ticket
price with you.
Carry: But before you place either
ad, decide what you would really like


to do on New Year's Eve. Since you
just broke up with your boyfriend,
maybe having the pressure of a first
date isn't your best alternative.
Likewise, selling the tickets and stay-
ing home to watch the ball drop could
be a lonely night.
Cash: Since you already paid for the
tickets, consider asking a friend to go
with you. Having someone there with-
out any pressure of a date may be your
perfect answer to the evening. And if
there are other single people at the
event, then who knows, you just might
meet someone new.
Carry: Besides, you can always stay
home to watch the ball drop next year!


Joining The Crowd
If you watched the ball drop in New
York City's Times Square last year,
you're not alone. Each year, an esti-
mated half-a-million people cram into
New York City to see the famous light-
ed ball fall 77 feet in 60 seconds atop
the building located at One Times
Square. More than 85% of thbse peo-
ple are believed to live outside of New
York City. It seems most of the New
Yorkers prefer to stay warm and watch
the ball drop on television like the rest
of us.

Fooled Ya
New Year's Day is one of the oldest
and most universal holidays of the year.
Historians believe that it dates back to
Romans who celebrated it in obser-
vance of the winter solstice. However,
many countries celebrated it on April
1st in recognition of the spring season.
In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII instituted
the Georgian Calendar making January
1st the official New Year. Many
believe that April Fool's Day originated
from this change as well.

Party On
Since my friends Natalie and Tim
had their son three years ago, they
don't get out of the house very often..
So they hired my 16-year-old to
babysit for them while they went out
for the evening.
When they arrived home that night,
Natalie called me and asked if I could
come pick up my daughter.
"I'm guessing Tim is in no condi-
tion to drive," I joked with her.
"I don't want to say he drank too
much," she said. "But when we got
home he put our son outside and tried
to tuck in our poodle!"
