Stolen vehicle recovered




after high speed chase


A call from a concerned
citizen led to the recovery
of a stolen 1994 Ford pick-
up truck and the arrest of
Robert Wade Mathis, age
40, of Rt. 1, Box 66, Lake-
land, Ga., according to
Jennings Police Chief Fer-
ron Gantous.
On Wednesday, Jan. 4, a
caller informed the
'Hamilton County Sher-
iff's Office (HCSO) that a
pick-up truck was travel-
ing at a high rate of speed
on US Hwy. 41 north to-
wards Jennings, accord-
ing to the Jennings Police


Department (JPD) arrest
report. Chief Gantous
said he responded to the
call and left Jennings,
traveling south on US
Hwy. 41.
Chief Gantous stated
that he sighted the truck
and clocked it at 89 m.p.h.
in a 60 m.p.h. zone. When
he turned around to pur-
sue the 'truck, Mathis
slowed down but contin-
ued traveling north, ac-
cording to Chief Gantous.
Mathis then turned on
NW 20th Ave. and
stopped approximately


200 feet from US Hwy. 41,
Chief Gantous said.
According to Chief
Gantous, he got out of his
patrol car and ordered
Mathis out of the truck.
Mathis responded by
speaking unintelligibly
and motioning him to-
wards the truck, Chief
Gantous said.
After he told Mathis
three times to get out of
the truck, Mathis sped'
away down NW 20th
Ave., Chief Gantous stat-

Park's commemoration of
National Stephen Foster Day
on January 15.

changing society in the years
before the Civil War. "Oh!
Susanna" was wildly popu-
lar during the California gold
rush. Two of his songs, "My
Old Kentucky Home" and
"Old Folks At Home" were
chosen as official state songs

ministrator
Andy Castellano, although
there were a few minor ci-
tations in the Dietary De-
partment the hospital did
very well on 'the inspec-
tions.
"Everything was in
place," Castellano said,
''and we did phenomenall"
The hospital hired a new
dietitian, Lydia Allen, who
implemented a new. pro-
gram to correct the defi-
ciencies. When the Agency
returned for another in-
spection on Dec. 29, they
were very impressed with
the new program, accord-
ing to Castellano.
Castellano, who has
been the hospital adminis-
trator since June of last


as a whole.
One small change can be
found in the emergency
room. Often when a child
receives a cut, it is difficult
for hospital staff to suture
the wound without re-
straining the child. Now,
they can use a type of
"glue" to hold the wound
together and not have to
suture it. This provides a
less traumatizing experi-
ence for the child and the
parents.
Because "health care is
by driven by technology,"
as Castellano said, he also
wants to bring more tech-
nology to the hospital,
such as equipment to test,
diagnose and treat dis-

Medicare Drug Benefit causing problems


Submitted
The Medicare Prescrip-
Stion Drug.Benefit program,
called Part D, had a rocky
start. People who had
signed .up and received
their identification cards
before Christmas experi-
enced very few problems
with getting their medicine,
but that was not the case
with many others.
Those on some state as-
sistance, like the Silver
Saver program, who were
not on Medicaid, had been
told by numerous sources
that they did not have to
sign up for a part D plan,
since they would receive it
automatically. This was not
the case.
Those on full Medicaid
that accepted the company


to which they were' as-
signed were usually able to
get their medicine. Those
who opted to change com-
panies experienced several
problems, such as incorrect
co-pays and having to pay
full price for their medica-
tions.
Most companies will not
start coverage urtil Feb. 1,
for those who enroll in Jan-
uary. This means that many
people will not have any
prescription coverage dur-
ing January. Some compa-
nies will enroll eligible per-
sons with an effective date
of the next business day.
There is also some other as-
sistance available through
various agencies.
All seniors are warned
not to sign anything or give


out any important iriforma-
tion over the phone or ir
stores. An important dis-
tinctioni between plans is
what percentage of the
Medicare drug list they cov-
er. Some companies cover
95% and some only covel
73%. It is very important tc

Important fire safety basics


Cold weather drives peo-
ple indoors in their effort to
keep warm. With added time
in the house, the risk of a fire
increases during winter
months. This risk is com-
pounded by the fact that ris-
ing fuel costs are putting
homeowners in the. position
of finding less expensive
means of heating their
homes, like wood-burning
stoves and fireplaces. As a re-
sult, unsafe practices may be
employed inadvertently,
leading to the potential of a
fire.
Follow these guidelines to
prevent a fire:
The kitchen is the room of
the house in which a fire is
most likely to start.. Don't
leave cooking food unattend-
ed. Regularly inspect cooking
appliances to make sure they
are in good working condi-
tion. Toasters or toaster ovens
should be free of excessive
crumbs and have a power
cord that is intact. Make sure
ovens are dean inside and not
full of food drippings or
grease. Keep items that could
catch on fire away from the
range top.
Keep a fire extinguisher in
the kitchen. In the event of a
grease fire, do not try to
douse flames with water it
will only spread the fire. Place
a pot cover over the flames,
and turn off the burner. If a
fire ever gets out of control,
call 911 and escape to safety.
Never use an oven to heat
the home. Not only is it a safe-
ty hazard, it can be a source of
potentially toxic fumes.
The utility room or base-
ment also houses equipment
with fire-hazard potential.
Keep combustible materials


away from the furnace. Be
sure all furnace controls and
emergency shutoffs are in
proper working condition.
Leave furnace repairs to qual-
ified specialists. Check the
fuel pipes and pipe seams
that exhaust heat from the
furnace to the outdoors. Are
they well supported and free
of holes and cracks? Soot
along or around seams may
indicate a leak. Leaks from a
furnace can be an added haz-
ard carbon monoxide is an
odorless gas that slowly suf-
focates a person. Installing
carbon monoxide detectors
throughout the home, in ad-
dition to fire detectors, is a
wise investment.
Wood stoves and fireplaces
can provide a good deal of
warmth, but open flames
have the potential of spread-
ing if proper safety precau-
tions are not'taken.
Be sure the stove or fire-
place is installed properly.
Wood stoves should have ad-
equate clearance '(36 inches)
from combustible surfaces,
and'proper floor support and
protection.
Have the chimney inspect-
.ed annually and cleaned if
necessary, especially if it has
not been used for some time.
Do not use flammable liq-
uids to start or accelerate any
fire.
Keep a glass or metal
screen in front of the fireplace
opening, to prevent embers
or sparks from jumping out,
unwanted material from go-
ing in, and help prevent the
possibility of anyone getting
burned.
The -stove should be
burned hot twice a day for 15
to 30 minutes to reduce the

amount of creosote buildup.
Creosote is a very flammable
byproduct of combustion that
can build up within the
smoke pipe and chimney and
then ignite, causing a chim-
ney fire.
Don't use excessive
amounts of paper to build'
roaring fires in fireplaces. It is
possible to ignite creosote in
the chimney by over building
the fire.
Keep flammable materials
away from the mantel. A
spark from the fireplace
could easily ignite these ma-
terials.
Before going to sleep, be
sure the fireplace fire is out.
Never dose the damper with
hot ashes in the fireplace. A
dosed damper will help the
fire to heat up again and will
force toxic carbon monoxide
into the house. If synthetic
logs are used, follow the di-
rections on the package. Nev-
er break a synthetic log apart
to quicken the fire or use
more than one log at a time.
They often bur unevenly, re-
leasing, higher levels of car-
bon monoxide.
Candles can provide light,
and a subtle scent-for rooms
in the home. They also can be
potentially dangerous. Never
leave candles lit while not
home or leave them burning
through the night. Keep can-
dles away from curtains,
tablecoths,or other loose fab-
rics. Don't place candles
where they can be knocked
over. Rely on candleholders
so that hot wax'will not spill
and damage furnishings.
'And always double-check
that candles and the matches
that were used to light them
are fully extinguished.

TECH AWARD: (I-r) NFCC networking instructor John Sirmons, Cisco CEO John Cham-
bers and Tom Moffses, Jr. recipient of the FACC Technology Award. (Photo submitted)


Tom Moffses, Jr. receives FACC's


Excellence in Technology Award


Tom Moffses Jr., direc-
tor of the Cisco Academy
Training Center located at
North Florida Community
College, received the
Florida Association of
Community Colleges Ex-
cellence in Technology
Award for 2005.
The Cisco Academy
Training Center trains 50
Cisco regional academies
in five southern states,
Puerto Rico, Jamaica,
Trinidad and Tobago in
the Caribbean. The sites
are located at univei sitie..,
community colleges and
technical centers with
1500 instructors teaching
Cisco Certified Network
Associate curriculum to
students.
Moffses retooled the de-
livery ofithe networking
curriculum that trains and.
certifies instructor-. By
using new technology,.
MIoffses developed an on-
line training capability
that.- saves instructors
travel .time and money,
and increases access and
convenience. A recent
study showed that 85% of
eligible instructors *com-.
pleted training, in the new


distance learning setting
resulting in savings of
$120,000 in travel expens-
es for schools sending in-
structors to training.
President Morris G.
Steen Jr. said, "[He) repre-
sents the best and bright-
est of North Florida's fac-
ulty and staff, and his 'can
do' approach is evident in
all he does."
John Sirmons, Network-
ing Technology instruc-
tor, who nominated Moff-
ses for the award, com-
mented, "Working with
Tom is always exciting as
he continually finds new
opportunities.for NFCC to
expand its scope of influ-.
ence as, well as provide
new options for learning
to the people of our six
county service area'.
The NFCC model is. be-
ing replicated at other
academies in the United
States for distance learn-
ing students in network-
ing classes.
Outside the classroom,
Moffses and NFCC net-
working instructor John
Sirmon- have shared their,
expertise with schools
and agencies throughout


the NFCC service district.
They set up a classroom at
the NFCC Center ,of
Hamilton County High
School, assisted a local se-
nior center with computer
stations, and helped re-es-
tablish the network of a
local school district after a
major electrical storm
damaged its infrastruc-
ture. Moffses has traveled
extensively in the
Caribbean establishing
training programs, for,
computer educators. Re-
cently he has been work-
ingwith the University of.
the West Indies in
Trinidad.
A 1983 graduate of
NFCC, Moffses was in the,
Navy for ten years, earned
a M.Ed., and returned, to
North Florida in 1997.

Children who are avid
readers obtain many ben-
efits from their literary
prowess. Through read-
ing, vocabulary is ex-
panded and an under-
standing of grammar and
word usage is learned,
among other educational
lessons. Reading also
opens children's minds to
imagination, travel, dif-
ferent cultures, and a va-
riety of ideas beyond
their own little worlds.
Experts encourage par-
ents and caregivers to
read to their children as
early as possible to foster
a love a literature at an
early age. It is not uncom-
mon for a mother-to-be to
read to her child while
the baby is in utero and
continue to do so as her
baby ages from infant to
toddler to early student.
The more exposure a
child has to books and
reading, the more likely
he or she will develop an
affinity for enjoying a
good book and continue
devouring literature
throughout life.
By reading aloud to


their young children, par-
ents can help them ac-
quire the prerequisite
skills they will need to
learn to read in school.
Being read to has been
identified as a source of
children's early literacy
development, including
knowledge about the al-
phabet, print and charac-
teristics of written lan-
guage. In addition,
shared parent-dhild book
reading during* children's
preschool years leads to
higher reading achieve-
ment in elementary
school, according to the
published study, Review
of Educational Research.
Part of encouraging
children to read involves
exposing them to a v'ari-
ety of books. Here's a list
of just a few popular chil-
dren's books good for
young readers age four
and up (although you can
enjoy them with younger
or much older children as
well).
Where the Wild Things
Are, by Maurice Sendak.
This Caldecott Medal-
winning picture book is
about a boy who becomes
angry and goes to "where
the wild things are."


Miss Nelson is Missing,
by Harry Allard. Miss
Nelson's class misbe-
haves constantly. That all
changes when a substi-
tute teacher, Ms. Viola
Swamp, scares them into
being model students.
Green Eggs and Ham, by
Dr. Seuss. While just
about all of Dr. Seuss'
whimsical rhymes can en-
tertain, this classic about
Sam-I-Am and his taste
for green eggs and ham is
definitely a winner.
Where the Sidewalk Ends,
by Shel Silverstein. Poet,
songwriter and artist, Sil-
verstein presents a collec-
tion of quirky observa-
tions and clever poetry
that will capture the
imaginations of little
readers everywhere.
Cloudy With a Chance of
Meatballs, by Judi Barrett.
Children will laugh out.
loud from this tale of a
tiny town called
Chewandswallow, where
it rains a variety of foods
three times a day.
The Velveteen Rabbit, by
Margery Williams Bianco.
An enchanting tale of the
love between a child and
his stuffed rabbit, who
magically comes to life.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


Dear Editor,
What a year 2005 was for me! Beginning with being
forced from my native New Orleans in the shadow of
Katrina. Thankfully with my life and Cajun spirit I re-
located to Port St. Lucie, Fla. to be with family.
Mother Nature then smacked me again with Wilma.
Go figure my luck to be that bad, but in all I can't com-
plain because out of all this distress I found two things
I've searched for all my thirty years.
In Port St. Lucie I found an amazing woman whom
I've grown greatly fond of and even better I found my
"quiet little house in the country." Shortly after Hurri-

cane Wilma I found Jasper as if by dumb luck.
I'm writing this letter tonight on the first day of Jan.
2006 because I've spent my day today thanking my new
Jasper neighbors and my new love for being part of my
life. For a guy who just a few months ago was left with
absolutely nothing to be proud of I now am confident-
ly seated in my new life here in Jasper.
I wanted to write this letter to extend my thanks to
this community for extending its love, Christian values,
and overall grace for making me feel so wanted in my
new surroundings. If anything was intended to be
learned for me by the last six months of trials, I've tak-
en away this notion: family, friends and your commu-
nity are, and always will be, stronger than one man
alone.
Thank you so much, Jasper, I am grateful to you for
the bright hopes I have for my future.
Bob Mitchell
Jasper

water walkers


Matthew 14:22 through 33
records a fascinating story
about Jesu.sinviting, Peter to,,
get out the boat and walk
with Him "on the water."
When Jesus came to the des-
perate disciples struggling
against the storm in the mid-
dle of the Sea of Galilee, His
intention was to help them
get to the other side but the
way He appeared to them,
walking on the water, star-
tled them and they were full
of fear because they could
not believe what they were
seeing. Jesus' first words to
them were, "Be of good
cheer! It is I, do not be
afraid."
Although full of fear Peter
answered Him and said,
"Lord, if it is You, command
me to come to You on the
water."
So He said, "Come," and
Peter stepped out of the boat
to take a stroll with Jesus.on
the water.
Almost immediately Peter
noticed the boisterous winds
and waves and lost faith in
the assurance of Jesus' invi-
tation, therefore he began to
sink. Many of you will say
that Peter was a failure be-
cause he began to sink but I
think Peter's walk with Jesus
on the water was a great suc-
cess. After all who else have
you ever heard about that
could walk on water. The
failure was the' other eleven
disciples who stayed in the
boat. Only Peter can boast of
the thrill and exhilaration of
walking on the water with
our Savior Jesus.
This story should be ap-
plied to our every day lives


as a Christian. For the most
part at least Si,. of. Chris-
Stians,.,are. 'sitting-..in ,the.
boat." Most cannot testify of.
any thrill or exhilarating ex-
periences like walking with
God. I believe God is look-
ing for people, like Peter,
who are .willing to take a
chance and see what will
happen when we respond to
the invitation as God says,
"Come."
There is something inside
each one of us that makes us
.want to be "water walkers"
but like the eleven disciples
who refused to get out of the;
boat, we, allow fear to stop
us. Fear of failure. Fear of
embarrassment. Fear that it
is us and not God. Feat we
are going to offend some-
one. That is why Jesus said,
"Be of good cheer! It is I; do
not be afraid." He wants us
to trust Him even if He asks
us to walk on water.
You can be assured that if
God asks you to do anything
He will also give you the
ability to do it. After all, it is
not you that would fail if it
didn't go right, it would be
God and God never fails, so
why fear.
It is time for comfortable
Christians to get out of
whatever boat they are sit-
ting fearfully in and start
walking with God. There is a
wonderful book titled If You
Want, To Walk On The Wa-
ter You Have To Get Out Of
The Boat. I highly recom-
mend it. I also recommend
becoming a "water walker."
Put your trust in God and do
something thrilling for the
Kingdom of God.

against FSU, pulling down three boards, collecting five steals and deflecting four passes.
He would also pass the ball for assists on five occasions. He would hand out six more as-
sists against Georgia Christian.


Cohen tries to make things happen here. Cohen has been getting to the basket suc-
cessfully in 2006 scoring 34 points in two outings thus far.

blocked a shot, grabbed two rebounds and provided two assists. The ladies would also
get a great defensive effort by Geralyn Bristol who stole the ball four times, while grab-
bing two rebounds and giving an assist. LaFaye Alexander also provided much needed
rebounding for the Lady Trojans pulling down six while stealing the ball once and scoring
a basket.

The Trojans attack the glass with Jones going strong. He would score eight points while
pulling down four rebounds with two pass deflections, blocking a shot and collecting an

Bailey played a great game leading the team over FSU, especially in the second half
when the Trojans fell behind by six points. A three point basket by Josh Paul pulled the
Trojans within a point, and Clariday assisted Pallock for the tying basket at 49. Bailey
would block one of his five shots, two in the overtime period, and hand an assist to Hunter
for the go ahead basket. Hunter actually got the last regulation rebound and heaved a
shot that just bounced off the front of the rim. Bailey would finish the game with 16 points,
eight rebounds, an assist, and those, huge five blocks. One of those stopped a sure bas-
ket in the overtime period as FSU was trying to go ahead.

from today's young people
in my opinion. Just a
thought.
Speaking of creative, I al-
ways loved it when Ruby

plait the Maypole. I hope
that Anita Selph and Don-
na Scaff will ask Ruby to

Ruby for keeping this tra-

The National Arbor
Day Foundation has an-
nounced a special new
campaign to assist in
tree recovery efforts for.
the areas that were dev-
astated by Hurricane
Katrina. Through the
"Katrina Tree Recovery
Campaign," the Arbor
Day Foundation, in co-
operation with the Na-
tional Audubon Society,
is offering people across
America the opportunity
to support replanting
trees in coastal Missis-
sippi and Louisiana, and
begin the reforestation
of neighborhoods and
cities across the region.
For every $10 donated to
the campaign, the Foun-
dation will contribute 10
trees to be planted by
Katrina victims.

Protecting

trees from

diseases


Trees, shrubs and other
ornamental plantings rep-
resent a sizable investment
and asset to most home-
owners. Keeping trees,
shrubs and other woody
plants healthy is the job of
professional arborists. De-
ciding when to use fungi-
cides and other plant
health improvement tech-
niques should be left to
professionals with the
knowledge and training to
do the job safely and effec-
tively.
Diseases of trees and
shrubs may be caused by
harmful bacteria, fungi and
viruses. "Most often these
diseases attack trees that
have already been stressed
by other factors," notes Pe-
ter Gerstenberger, senior
advisor for safety and com-
pliance with the Tree Care


fPaidk


Industry Association. "It is
difficult to recognize tree
diseases, because the or-
ganisms responsible are
small and not easily detect-
ed in the early disease
stages. Once a problem is
recognized, the disease is
often in an advanced stage,
limiting an arborist's treat-
ment options."
Some diseases can kill
trees in a short period of
time; others are long-term
chronic diseases. Some dis-
eases do not usually cause
serious damage to trees,
while others can virtually
eliminate an entire tree
species. Harmful, parasitic
bacteria cause a number of
plant diseases. Damage
from bacteria can be limit-
ed to leaves or the bacteria
can infect and destroy the
vascular system of the tree,

eventually causing tree
death.
"In general, consumers
will first notice leaves in a
section of the crown show-
ing signs of wilting or
scorching," explains Ger-
stenberger.
Other symptoms to look
for include trees of the
same species that express
themselves differently,
wilting or scorching leaves,
leaves smaller than normal
in one section or the whole
tree, early fall color in one
section of the tree or the
whole tree, dieback of
twigs and limbs, reduced
shoot growth, leaf disco-
oration, stress-induced
production of numerous
small cones or fruit of poor
quality and heavy resin or
gum flows.
The best way to avoid
tree diseases is .to keep
trees healthy, making them
less susceptible. Insects
that spread diseases are at-
tracted to trees that are
stressed and have a weak-
ened defense .system.
Maintain the .landscape
and ensure proper soil fer-
tility and watering prac-
tices to promote plant
health and minimize the ef-
fects of stress on plants.

PUAk IIfA THE JASPER .NEWS, JasperLH D JNR20


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Good morning or what-
ever time you read this,
know that I will be think-
ing of those of you who
contact me during the
year. If I do not get back to
you in time, or fail to be in
touch, it is not because
your are not in my
thoughts. Sometimes there
get to be so many thoughts
going on in my head, it is
hard to get it all together. I
wonder what happened
before using the computer,
I need the speed of it to get
my thoughts down before
they go away. I can't write
as fast as typing into the
computer.
You know that many of
my thoughts go back in
time. Many of the
thoughts come from oth-
ers. You have heard me
say that a friend once said
our thoughts and words
usually come from some-
one else and are passed
on. Several months ago-
Edith Smith who wrote for
the Valdosta Daily Times
for many years, did book
reviews. The community
section of it on Sunday is
something to look forward
to each week. It is good to
read of social and commu-
nity events, recipes, puz-
zles, and the book reviews
that she gave each week
before her death. We still
miss her; many times it
gave me ideas what would
be a "good read."
Sandra Connell has a
column on page two
where we read Edith
Smith's column. She is me-
dia specialist at Valwood
School. Being a little be-
hind on catching up with
some of my reading, I had
saved the Jan. 1, issue to
enjoy at later dates. This
particular column,: "The
bother of making New
Year's resolutions," re-


minded me that I had said
your calls would be re-
turned; however, some-
times it is hard for me to
get back to you. I will try
to keep repeating your
calls until someone an-
swers. Back to resolutions,
this will be the last time to
mention them in this col-
umn this year.
Speaking of New Year,
there is a daily devotional
that has been shared with
me by my dear friend, Jo
Coe. It is New Every Morn-
ing, a Daily Touch of God's
Faithfulness, by Kate R.
Thomas. Jo knows some
members of her family,
and it is on my "to do" list
to order copies. I like to
mark in my books. I re-
member that Mamie Deas
would not let some people
read some of her books, as
she did not want them to
read her opinions or
thoughts in certain things.
Later Mamie's grandson
gave me a book that I had
given to Mamie. I had writ-
ten in it and so had she. As
our dear friend, Virgie
Cone says, "Think about it.
We will now move on into
a new day, week, month
and year, make each of
them a good one."
Sometimes my columns
come back to make me,
think more about what I
.'have written, and review
them, maybe even learn
from them. But when they
come to mind, I just sit
down at the computer and
let them flow. What you
see is what you get.
New Year's Eve was
spent with friends, howev-
er we did not last until 12
o'clock. I Wras home and
barely heard the firecrack-
ers at the heome of Bill and
Linda Taylor, Abbey Tay-
lor, and children John'and
Libby Taylor. They moved


here several years ago; it
seems they have been here
forever. They had been
such a great addition to our
community and to our
church. To me the house
was known as the Hart
House, others remember it
much further back as the
Addie Green home. They
have kept much of the for-
mer style and filled it with
their own family memora-
bilia.
New Years Day, Nancy
Cozart and Glenn Miller
held their annual "red
beans and rice" gathering.
I can't even begin to.name
all the goodies supplied
for a festive occasion,
-black-eyed peas and Lin-
da Robinson's wonderful
greens. It is fun to visit
with old friends and meet
new ones. Sandy Doss vis-
ited with the Coe family
on New Year's Day. She
came from Jacksonville to
be with friends and at-
tended the party at Nancy
and Glenn's home.
Our prayers today are
with, Harvey and Pat
Oehlert. Harvey was
scheduled for heart by-
pass surgery on Monday
morning and atthis writ-


ing they canceled the
surgery to give him more
time to help be better pre-
pared for the surgery. We
hope by this time he will
be recovering. He is so
missed by everyone, espe-
cially Jasper Presbyterian
Church friends.
John Harvey Taylor was
baptized during the morn-
ing worship service at
Jasper Presbyterian
Church, performed by
Pastor Doug Hilliard.
Standing with John were
his mother Abbey Taylor,
grandparents Bill and Lin-
da Taylor, and sister Lib-
by Taylor. Elders were in-
stalled during the service
also. All had previously
been ordained and were
installed to serve for three
years, Becky Longshore,
Rex Mitchell, Linda Taylor
and me.
Betty Sue McMillan and
her family, Becky, Jake
and Callie Adams from
Jasper, celebrated the oc-
ca'sion of Betty Sue's par-
ents 68th wedding an-
niversary. A wonderful
occasion. They met the
other members of the fam-
ily in Valdosta for a cele-
bration dinner. Best wish-


es to Mr. and Mrs. Vick-
ers; it seems like only yes-
terday that we went to
Georgia when they cele-
brated the 50 year an-
niversary.
A' special treat for a
group of ladies from
Jasper during the Christ-
mas holidays was a trip to
Douglas, Ga., for a visit to
the home of L. J. and Gina
Lewis Chambers and Ash-'
leigh McGauley. Gerrett
Lewis has been living
there with them, working
with L. J.'s family busi-
ness, Marcraft. He will be
leaving soon to work for
the company in California,
for a time at least.
The family'recently built
a lovely new home on a
lake, just outside of Dou-
glas, in a beautiful setting.
We had a tour of the
home, upstairs and down-
stairs. Many interesting
features of the families of
Gina and L. J. were used
in the planning of the
home and in the furnish-
ings. We could see things
that reminded us of our
dear friend Mary Frances
Lewis, and there were
signs of Margaret Davis
Lewis, Virginia Davis


MacFarlane and members
of the Chambers family.
Margaret Lewis and Vir-
ginia Davis MacFarlane
were our hostesses from
Jasper and organized our
road trip. Melanie Gay
was the driver of our car
and took good care of us
up there and back. There
are so many interesting
features of the home. I
found my favorite nook,
just off the kitchen, with a
lounge chair where one
could sit and read for
hours to heart's content. L.
J., Gina, Ashleigh, with
the assistance of Margaret,
Virginia and Melanie were
gracious host and host-
esses, making all feel so
welcome. We were treated
as honored guests, and.
each was given a crystal
angel ornament as a re-
membrance.
The schools will be out
and most public offices
closed I think on Monday
for the remembering of
Martin Luther, King's
birthday.
Have a good weekend
and next week.

NFIB praises
legislative
action


The National Federation of
Independent Business. Flori-
da's leading small-business
advocacy\ group. recently said
implementation of Florida's
minimum \\age will be signif-
icantly fairer to employers as
a result of action the state leg-
islature took in a ust-conclud-
ed special session. The legis-
latire appro\ ed SB 1 SB, a bill
sponsored by State Sen. ).D.
Alexander (R-Lake Wales),
and sent it to Gov Jeb Bush
yesterday.
Alexander's legislation,
once signed b. the governor,
puts into statute Florida's
munimuni wage constitutional
amendment passed by voters
in 2004. The legislation goes
beyond the constitutional
amendment that Florda
adopted in 2004 by:
Requiring the Agency for
Workforce Innovation and the
Department of Revenue to
publish the annually updated
nininimum \\age on their re,
spective Web sites:
Requiring employees to
first notiR- employers before
initianng a civil action to en-
force their right to receive the
state imnimunm age;
Allowing employers 1.5
calendar days to resolve any
claims for the unpaid wages
before a suit may be filed;
Limiting the damages
aw\aided to employees to only
unpaid wages if the court de-
ternines the employer acted
in good faith and had reason-
able grounds for believing
that their action was not in vi-
olation of the constitution
Restricting the court from
awarding punitive damages;
Imposing restrictions on
class-action lawsuits; and '.
SLimiting eligibility fo tblS
minimum %wage to worker,
who are currently entitled to
receive the federal miniitia
wage under the Fair Laboi
Standards Act (FLSA)annd iU
associated implementing reg-
ulations.
"These important reforms
provide a measure of comfort
and insulation to employers.
especially in the areas o.
class-action lawsuits and
damage awards beyond back
wages." NFlB.Florida Assis-
tant State Director Patrick Ar-
rington said. "'Other important
reforms in the special session
such as new ethics standard;
and a pilot program for Med:
icaid reform grabbed head-
lines across the state, but these
minimum wage implement.
tion reforms were very impor;
tant to small business. NFIE
thanks the legislature anc
governor for their efforts or
this important bill."
On May 2, the state's mini.
mtun wage was increased tt
$6.15 per hour with a yearly
increase tied to the Southeast.
ern CPI (Consumer Price In.
dex). The state's minimurn
wage will increase to $6.40 or
Jan. 1.

tion, attention will be directed to drivers who would violate
the driver license laws of Florida. The Patrol has found these'
checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing the equip-
ment and driver's license laws of Florida while ensuring the
protection of all motorists.

Despite its name, heart

failure can be fought
Though cancer is claiming more and more victims each year, heart disease remains the foremost
cause of death in Americans. According to the American Heart Association, 70.1 million Americans
suffer from some type of cardiovascular disease, with roughly 10 percent of those sufferers being
victims of a heart attack and nearly 5. million of those suffering from congestive heart failure.
Perhaps the most difficult obstacle to overcome with respect to heart failure is making people know
they have it. Despite the implied totality of its name, heart failure does not mean your heart just stops.
Rather, heart failure gradually develops and taxes your heart to the point where it needs to work
especially hard just to maintain normal function, such as pumping, your blood. It is typically the result
of a heart attack or an extended period of high blood pressure.
There are distinctive characteristics that act as indicators of heart failure. For instance, trouble
breathing when resting or lying down, and waking up breathless in the middle of the night can be
signs.
Another symptom not to take lightly is fatigue. Those who might be on the doorstep of heart failure
tire more easily than is normal for someone their age and might experience edema, a swelling of the
feet, ankles or legs. If you find yourself or a loved one to be tiring despite a lack of activity, consult a
physician and ask for a cardiovascular examination.
Excessive coughing is also a telltale sign of heart failure. A hacking cough when lying in bed or a
cough that produces ample and continuous mucus is a sign that heart failure might be setting in. While
each of these symptoms might seem commonplace in the elderly, they all imply something worse than
just "getting old," and further attention is necessary if you or someone you love is exhibiting these
symptoms.
Though heart failure is typically not recognized until its more advanced stages, there are a number of
precautions one can take to limit one's risk of heart failure.
One such precaution is exercising at a rate and frequency prescribed by your doctor. Consult with a
physician, as opposed to an athletic or personal trainer, and work with him or her to develop an
appropriate routine.
Another thing to do is watch your weight. Large fluctuations in body weight can be extremely taxing
on your heart, whether you're dropping pounds or gaining them. Maintaining a steady weight or, if
you're trying to lose weight, dropping pounds gradually allows your heart to tackle a more predictable
workload.
Limiting your intake of salt can also go a long way in reducing your risk for heart failure. Sodium
has long been linked to high blood pressure, something that is a direct cause of heart failure.
It is wise to remember the prevalence of heart failure Though its name might imply fatality, there are
a number of steps you can take to lower your risks of falling victim to heart failure. To learn more, visit
the Heart Failure Society of America Web site at www.abouthf.org.
