time, she told authorities,
she didn't realize anyone
was looking for her even
though she had disap-
peared from her family.
Sheriff Cameron said
the teen told them she
had parked her grandfa-
ther's pickup truck at
Wal-Mart Monday night,
Feb. 6, and walked south
to Live Oak "where she


just started hanging out
and doing whatever,"
Cameron said. "When she
saw all the activity
around the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment on North Ohio Av-
enue (US 129) Feb. 9, she
got scared, but then called
from the pay phone at CR
249 and Winderweedle,"
Sheriff Cameron said.
"Sheriff Reid and I were
outside the FDLE office
talking when dispatch
called, and we got into
my truck and went and
got her!" a very happy
Sheriff Cameron said.
When Rye called the
Sheriff's Office, she got

ty Sheriff's Office dis-
patcher Joyce Davis.
"She was crying," Davis
said. "She said she had
been sleeping in the
woods, and she was
scared," Davis comment-
ed. Davis said the teen
told her she didn't know


anyone was looking for
her. Davis, the teen on the
phone while her supervi-
sor, Sheila Knight, who
overheard the conversa-
tion and knew whom
Davis was talking with,
quickly called Sheriff
Cameron and directed
him to the teen. Both were
pleased with their team-
work and elated over the
safe recovery of the teen.
Both Sheriff Cameron
and Sheriff Reid inter-
viewed the teen initially.
Other officers were con-
ducting more inter-
views.
Hamilton County Sher-
iff Harrell Reid said Feb.
9, that FDLE had taken all
of Rye's cell -phone
records and her computer
to try and see if there
were any clues to her
whereabouts.

Adapted from a devotional by
Paula Adams, Cherry Lake, Fla.

A man named Rick told of
attending an evangelistic
conference at the Billy Gra-
ham Training Center at the
Cove near Asheville, N.C.
During that time he related
that God broke his heart as
He revealed some of the rea-
sons why he had not seen
any fruit in his life for years.
He said, "I wept as God
showed me how I had been
judgmental toward the very
people He wanted. me to
love into His kingdom. He
showed me once again that I
am a proud sinner who des-
perately needs to work on
my relationship with Jesus. It
felt like open-heart surgery
with the Holy Spirit."
During these meetings,
several people prayed that
the Lord would help Rick
share his faith. While he was
on his way back home to
California, renewed in spirit,
Rick went out and bought a,
Bible to give away.
On his flight back to San
Jose, he chatted with a col-
lege student from Tennessee.
After several minutes of
small talk, Rick asked,. "Do
you go to church?"
"Sometimes I go with a
friend," he answered.
Feeling a little bolder, Rick
asked, "Do you love Jesus?"
"I guess so," he respond-
ed.
Then Rick asked one of the
most important questions a
Christian could ever ask an-
other human being, "Have
you ever asked 'Jesus into
your heart?"
*"No. Never," came the stu-
dent's reply, and he went on
'to explain that he was visit-
ing a family in California
that follows a different reli-
gion. Then he asked Rick
about the difference between
that religion and Christiani-
ty. Rick told him the differ-
ence was between trying to
earn our way to God


through good works and
that of being saved by grace
through the blood of Jesus.
As Rick talked, his bold-
ness increased until he final-
ly asked, "Do you want to
become a Christian?"
"Yes," he replied. "Do you
want to do it right now?"
"Yes, I do," he responded.
Rick recalled later, "I was
amazed at how easy it was.
My awkward explanation of
the Gospel seemed to have
an impact on his heart, but I
couldn't understand why.
Obviously, the Holy Spirit
was doing something won-
derful in him, and I just
needed to relax and let God
do it!"
"All you have to do is
pray," I told him. "I will pray
a line, and then you can re-
peat it after me."
"Okay, let's do it," he
agreed. This was all so amaz-
ing to me that I had to simply
stop and ask him if he really
knew what he was doing.
"Asking Jesus into your
heart is a lifelong commit-
ment to live for God. Are
you ready to give your life
fully to Him, from now on?"
"Yes," he agreed, and right
there on that plane he asked
the Lord to forgive his sins
and come into his heart. I en-
couraged him and gave him
the Bible I had bought earlier
that morning, recommend-
ing that he start with the
Gospel of John.
All the way home, my
heart sang for joy! God had
used me to share the Gospel,
and He had used me to bear
fruit! Now I am determined
to ask God every day for op-
portunities and for boldness
to share the Gospel.
"Paul said, "I .am not
ashamed of the Gospel, be-
Scause' it 'is the, power' of God
for the salvation of everyone
who believes." Romans 1:16
(NIV). May God bless you
and me as we seek to serve
Him.

not only echoed in the family house
but in the church house and the
school house.
"We wanted more for our children
than we ever had. We wanted our
girls to be able to take care of them-
selves and not have to depend on
anyone else," was the thought often
reflected by those interviewed.
In many households there was al-
ways the high expectation of children
attending college and that seed was
planted early. Fathers worked hard
and took care of the family. Mothers
encouraged and pushed the children
to do their best in school daily.
For example, Mrs. Willonese Till-
man-Adams stated, "My mother in-
sisted that we go to college. My dad
had promised her if she married him,
she would be able to finish school.
Well, she had one baby after the oth-
er and she was never able to finish.
She told our father that the children
would finish school and vowed that
she would not rest until all of them
had college degrees. As a result of
this promise and driven desire, the
late Mr. and Mrs. Ralph and Clara
Bell Tillman (White Springs) had sev-
en children to complete degrees:
Willonese T. Adams, Norma, Fannie,
Lana, Vanessa, Donald and Sonya
Tillman.
Mrs. Zeffie Lee Daniels said, "My
children needed to be in school every
day and I made it my business to see
to it that they got there and Sunday
school too. When they got to either
one of them, they knew to 'mind the
teacher and do their lesson and I


meant business. I'm looking at too
many children walking through my
yard today when they ought to be in
school. I remember times we had to
walk to school in the rain and cold
trying to read and write and now the
children take it for granted. I didn't
have foolishness and every one of my
children graduated from high school
and I thank God all of them are on
good jobs today except for those who
have retired." The late Mr. Willis
Daniels and Mrs. Zeffie Lee Daniels
(Jasper) had six children to complete
degrees: Bessie D. Outley, Rosa
Daniels, Betty D. Jackson, Sandra D.
Jacobson, JoAnn Whisenhunt and the
late Zannie D. Briazzo.
Ms. Catherine Allen (Jasper) had
five children to complete degrees at
FAMU: John Hale, Carolyn, Anthony,
Carlton and Reginald Allen.
The late Mr. and Mrs. Willis and
Minnie Lumpkin (White Springs) had
five children to complete degrees at
FAMU: Eleanor L. Bradley, Herbert,
Harold, Francenia and Ronald Lump-
kin.
A unique honor bestowed upon the
Allen and Lumpkin families was the
presidential award from Florida A &
M University, which was awarded to
them after the graduation of the fifth
family member from Florida Agricul-
ture and Mechanics University. These
families are the only two who hold
this distinction in Hamilton County.

"My Daddy was an example
for all of us,"said Adelle J.
Cobbs. "He was constantly
reading his bible that let us
know how important it was to

However, he had an even
greater desire for his girls to be

he stressed the importance of
his girls going to college. In our

Farm Bureau and Ronald McDonald

House celebrate Food Check-Out Day


Food in American is af-
fordable. In just five short
weeks, the average Ameri-
can earns enough dispos-
able income to pay for his
or her food supply for the
entire year. To put it blunt-
ly, food prices in America
are a bargain.
On average, Americans
spend just 9.5 percent of
their disposable income on
food, according to United
States Department of Agri-
culture statistics. This
means it takes only 35 days
for most Americans to earn
enough money to buy their
groceries for the entire
year.
As a result, all county
Farm Bureaus in rural
north Florida celebrated
Food Check-Out Week, Jan.
29 through Feb. 4. Local


County Farm Bureau's do-
nated over $800 worth of
fresh, Florida-produced
fruits, vegetables, meats
and dairy products to
Ronald McDonald House
in Tallahassee on Feb. 2.
Damon Deas, president
of Hamilton County Farm
Bureau, stated, "The boun-
ty of safe, affordable food
produced by America's
farmers and ranchers bene-
fits consumers, who pay
less for food than citizens
of any other country in the
world."
"Tax Freedom Day,
which is the total number
of days this same family
has to work in order to pay
for all the different taxes
that the average family in-
curs each year, doesn't hap-
pen until May," Deas


added.
"The recipient of the free
groceries was the Ronald
McDonald House, which is
a great charity," said Deas.
"We have worked with
Ronald McDonald House
for ten years to celebrate
Food Check-Out Day."
There were several mem-
bers of the Board of Direc-
tors of Ronald McDonald
House in Tallahassee pre-
sent to receive the gift. The
Farm Bureau prepared a
meal for all the directors as
well as several families
staying at the House, who
have children in local hos-
pitals in Tallahassee.
Deas went on to say, "We
need to tell our story at
every event we can. People
need to understand that
food in America is the


safest supply of any in the
world. They also need to be
told it is abundant as well
as affordable. We've got a
great story to tell: Food is a
bargain in America."
"When you consider the
average price increases that
Americans have absorbed
for vehicles, gasoline and
other consumer products
over the past 20 years, the
cost of food seems like a
real bargain. Our nation's
increasing standard of liv-
ing would certainly be re-
duced without out safe,
abundant and affordable
domestic food supply,"
said Deas.
Food in America remains
affordable any way you
slice it, thanks to the farm-
ers and ranchers who pro-
duce it.


Embrace patriotism


on Presidents' Day


Annie Mae Claridy-Mitchell


Member of first graduating


class of JRE Lee passes away


Annie Mae Claridy-
Mitchell, one of two re-
maining students from
the first class that gradu-
ated from JRE Lee High
School in Jasper, passed
away on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Rosa Lee White is now the
last remaining graduate
of that class.
Mrs. Mitchell was 89
years old and a former
resident of Jasper. Her
parents were the late
Robert..and Pauline Clar-
idy.


Her home-going ser-
vice was 'held on Satur-
day, Feb. 11, at Greater
Bethel AME Church in
Gainesville, with the Rev.
George L. Champion Sr.,
officiating. Her husband,
Calvin Mitchell; her sis-
ter, Willie Blanche Clar-
idy; and local nieces and
nephews, Bobby Claridy,
Paula G.' Williams, Ron-
nea Williams-Weather-
spoon and Tara Williams-
Thomas thought the srr-
vice was beautiful.


Often, holidays that don't
involve turkey dinners or
exchanging gifts can get
lost in the mix. One that of-
ten falls victim to this is
Presidents' Day, a holiday
set aside for Americans to
honor two past Presidents,
George Washington and
Abraham Lincoln, whose
significant contributions to
our nation's history contin-
ue to be a source of inspira-
tion and pride. Celebrating
our heroes can be an adven-
ture of discovery into
America's past, present and
future.
Presidents' Day reminds
us that the goal of freedom
was not won without cost.
The patriots of long ago
had a vision of America
and through their courage
and sacrifice the United
States became the country it
is today. Though Presi-


dents Washington and Lin-
coln are two of America's
most famous patriots, there
.are many other notable
American patriots, past and
present.
Presidents' Day is intend-
ed to give Americans a time
to reflect on where America
is today and to consider the
role each of us plays in cre-
ating the nation's history
going forward.
Here are a few patriotic
suggestions for celebrating
this Presidents' Day holi-
day with your family:
Visit a museum or. his-
toric site in your local area.
Many times, a local muse-
um is a great place to learn
interesting facts or tidbits
about your town's place in
history.
Pop some popcorn and
Watch a mo\ie that tells an
American story. our local


library is a good source for
historical films and docu-
mentaries. America's Heart
and Soul (2004); the History
Channel's Founding Fa-
thers; and the A&E biogra-
phy of Abraham Lincoln
are all inspiring stories
about America and its peo-
ple. Also check the local
video store. Many popular
movies tell stories about
moments in history, such as
Gone With the Wind (1939),
The Red Badge of Courage
(1951), and The Little Patri-
ot (1994).
Gather the family around
the kitchen table and play
the award-winning Patriot
Challenge board game.
This is a fun game that will
have players laughing,
singing and feeling the
spirit of America. Knowl-
edge is important, but in
this game your experience


and opinions are also worth
points. Players travel a
timeline of American
events and compete to be
the first Patriot to pass the
year 2000 in this lively edu-
cational trivia game.
Activities such as these
bring people together to ex-
plore America's past and
promote involvement in
America's future. By shar-
ing personal stories agd
points of view, players
learn from each other about
the key issues of today,
sparking new ideas for get-
ting. family and friends
more involved in building
a better America.

Trojans basketball


season concludes


Terry Hedgespeth
Sports Reporter

he Hamilton Coun-
ty Trojans varsity
boys basketball sea-
son came to an unfortunate
close this past week drop-
ping a hard fought 73-63
decision against FSU at the
Madison County gym.
According to head coach
Patrick Murphy, it was a
tough loss in the first round
of the district tournament
but the players gave it all


they had the whole game
and he is extremely proud
of their teamwork. The
team provided 19 assists to
create 21 field goals against
FSU and their hustle was
incredible.
Unfortunately, a key to
the game was that the Tro-
jans had three starters foul
out, and had two players
finish, with four fouls each.
Coach Murphy really did
not want to say much more
than that on that particular
issue, but the guys played
,, : '-


hard and probably de-
served to win the game.
Coach Murphy was
quick to point out that the
Trojans have a very bright
future since there will only
be two players departing
for graduation. Cam Cohen
and Desmond Williams
will depart HCHS to begin
a fruitful adventure
through life. Coach Mur-
phy is excited about the fu-
ture and is also extremely

proud of the team this year
and the leadership that was


shown by the two seniors.
Cohen finished his Tro-
jan career, with a great
game scoring 20 points
while pulling down four
rebounds and hustling his


way to four steals. He also
deflected two passes andi
handed ouffrf6tirasits. i,
The, other senior,
Williams, did what he does
best team ball. Williams-


.' e! A Pictorial History of Suwannee, Hamilton and Lafayette Counties


would account for 10 as-
sists .and found time to
score six points and to steal
the ball once while deflect-
ing three passes.
Trojan fans have to be ex-
cited about the future at
HCHS with the return of
Josh Jones, next year. He
lead the team in scoring
against FSU with 25 points
and pulled down 12 re-
bounds. He also had two
steals and deflected two
passes while blocking two
shots and handing out one
assist.
Vinney Bailey turned in
another nice performance
scoring 11 points while


pulling down five boards
,and blocking ,a shot. ,,::
A nice effort was turned
in by Glenn Sheppard on
the boards, pulling down
four while stealing the ball
. once and having a deflec-
tion.
Gareth Johnson turned in
a nice game for the Trojans
also with a couple of re-
bounds, and defensively,
stealing 'the ball three
times. He also deflected
three passes and connected
for a point from the stripe.
Othet contributors to the
outstanding game against
FSU were Anthony Stevens
who deflected three passes


.while pulling down a re-
bound, and Ti-Wan Cooks
grabbed one eachon the
boards, a steal and a deflec-
tion. He also contributed
two assists to a great team
total of 19.
The Trojans again con-
trolled the boards in this
game and received one of
those by returning
Desmond Kiser. Eric Jack-
son contributed to an ag-
gressive Trojans defense
with a pass deflection.
Great job, Trojans. Good
luck to the departing se-
niors and look forward to
the return of a great crew
of returnees for next year.


Lady

hit for a single, as did
Morgan Asbell, Kendall
Newsome and Amanda
Zamora. Amanda also
came in for two of the five
runs.
Kristen Parks pitched
the entire game. She had
six strike outs and only
five walks. The Lady Tro-
jans were down 4-6 in the
top of the seventh inning.
Katy Burnam hit a single,
then was advanced to sec-
ond base by Brittany Alt-
man as she was thrown


out at first base.
Next came Kendall New-
some who was walked.
With runners on' first and
second, Robbielyn Rober-
son came up to bat. She hit
a single scoring Katy Bur-
nam. Kendall Newsome
tried to reach third base
and was thrown out. As
the Lady Hornets were get-
ting settled, Robbielyn
Roberson stole third base,
,her momentum carried her
across the base, at that
point the pitcher for
Lafayette was back at the
pitching circle. Robbielyn
was called out. The game
ended with the Lady Tro-


jans losing a heartbreaker
5-6.
The Lady Trojans play
again in their first district
game today, at Florida
High School in Tallahas-
see. The first home game
will be Friday, Feb. 17, at 5
p.m. and 7 p.m. (JV and
V), versus Aucilla Christ-
ian at the new
baseball/softball complex
at Hamilton County High
School. Come out and see
the new fields, and sup-
port your Lady Trojans.
The baseball field dedica-
tion ceremony, in honor of
Dr. Mikler, will be held at
the fields at 6 p.m.

I -T HA L -NWT. J


At this writing on Mon-
day morning, Feb. 13, it is
cold outside for our part
of the world. Driving to
work this morning, the
woods were white with
February frost. I saw some
lumbermen who were
working in the woods just
north of the house. They
had built a big bonfire,
and were warming
around it. I have seen the
month of March when it
was very chilly. During
the days when Daddy and
Uncle Warren grew tobac-
co, I have set (for those of
you not from here "set"
means transplant) tobacco
plants when the weather
would be so cool we
would build fires at either
end of the field to "thaw"
out our hands during the
process.
February, at this point,
is only about half over,
and the month of March is
a long month. As I wrote
last week, don't picture
yourself wearing shorts'
and summer attire on a
regular basis just yet. Stay
in out of the cold weather
and make sure during the
cold and flu season to
wash your hands on a reg-
ular basis, keep yourself
hydrated (drink plenty of
water), and try and get
enough rest.
Janet, Moses has done a
great job restoring the his-
toric home of Mr. and
Mrs. W.B. Feagle on the
corner of Hamilton and
Wesson Streets, behind
the Methodist Church in
,White Springs. Janet's
shop on Bridge Street is
full of all'kinds of sea-on-
al goodies. Go by and
"check. out" Janet's, shop


in White Springs; you'll be
glad you did.
Happy birthday wishes
are extended to Rev. Ron
Thompson, pastor of First
Baptist Church, White
Springs. We wish Rev.
Thompson many more
happy birthdays.
The Hamilton County
Democratic Committee
hosted an outstanding din-
ner celebration on Monday,
Feb. 13, at 6 p.m., at Sham-
rock's Restaurant in Jasper.
It honored all of our locally
elected Democratic County
Officials. Rhett Bullard,
State Committeeman, for
the Hamilton DEC, served
as emcee. Many thanks to
all the members of the
Hamilton DEC who
worked so hard on this
event.
Dr. Mickler will be hon-
ored on Friday, Feb. 17, at
the "new" baseball field at
the Hamilton County
High School when it will
be officially dedicated. Dr.
Mickler means so much to
so many in this county, in-
cluding me. In a day and
age when medicine and
the practice thereof, has
become more of a business
and less of a humanitarian
profession, Dr. Mickler,
for many years, kept the
"human touch" with our
beloved Hamilton Coufi-
ty. His patients were more
than just numbers, they
were his'friends and ac-
quaintances. He cared
about them and this com-

strated in ways too nu-

hittingg that the baseball.
field be named for one
who gave so much of him-
self to this community.


The Superintendent of
Schools, Mr. Harry J. Pen-
nington, as well as the
School Board, will be on
hand for this special event.
Happy birthday wishes
are extended to Ms. Sue
Burkett, Jasper. Ms. Bur-
kett, a longtime member of
our educational communi-
ty in Hamilton County will
celebrate an anniversary of
her 39th on Feb. 17. I'm not
saying which anniversary.
We wish Sue, many more!!!
Paula Williams, Jasper,
has done an outstanding
job featuring many of
Hamilton County's out-
standing African American
citizens in her articles this
month in The Jasper News.
The month of February is
"Black History" Month,
and it is good to read about
the accomplishments of
many of our fine local citi-
zens and those from local
Hamilton County families.
Well done, Paula!!! We ap-
preciate you.
Columbia County and
Lake City will come alive
this coming weekend with
the Olustee Battle Festival,
Friday through Saturday,
Feb. 17 through Feb. 19.
This is a huge event for our
area, and if you have never
attended, you really should.
Downtown Lake City will
be "alive" with vendors ga-
lore on Friday and Saturday
and, of course, a re-enact-
ment of the Battle of Olustee
is held at the Olustee Battle
Ground, east of Lake City.
Many thanks to those who
work so hard organizing
this event each year, espe-
cially our local park service
staff in White Springs at
Stephen Foster, who share
the responsibility of orga-
nizing the Olustee Festival.
If you haven't availed
yourself the opportunity
to use the White Springs
Public Library lately, you
really should. The library
hours are Monday through
Wednesday and on Fri-
days, from 1 p.m. till 6
p'm. and from 10 a.m. till 6 i
p.m. on Thursdays. Go by
the library, check out a


book and enjoy. Winter
time is a perfect time to
catch up on your leisure
reading. This past Satur-
day, when it rained all
day, was the perfect day
for the coffee pot and a
good book.

Kindergarten continues
to review for our Stan-
ford 10 test. We are
studying the letter Bb this
week. Parents, remember
to help your child study
for his/her spelling test
each week.
February is "Dental
Care" month. We had a
special visitor, Mrs.
Samantha Norris, from
Dr. Ben Norris' office in
Jasper. Mrs. Norris and
her friend, Al the alliga-
tor, talked to us about
how we can take care of
our teeth. She also gave
us toothbrushes, stickers,
and activity worksheets
to do. Thank you, Mrs.
Norris.
Mrs. Mickler's first
graders have been busy
as bees this week. We
have been working on
contractions and com-
pound words galore in
reading. We have also
been talking about taking
good care of ourselves
and using good hygiene.
A favorite story we have
read during this study is
Belly Button Beans. In this
story, a little boy did not
wash his belly button af-
ter playing in the dirt. He
woke''up: the next morn-
ing to find a plant grow-
ing from his belly button.
He tried every thing he
could to get it out, but
nothing would do except
to go to the doctor who
had the plant removed by
a gardener. The moral of
the story is to be sure to
bathe good when taking
care of yourself. Our class
had a good laugh when
reading this .story. Par-
ents, be sure to read
something with your
child everyday. The time
you spend together will
reap positive outcomes
tremendously.
The second grade is
preparing for the Stan-
ford 10 test that is given
this month. Please listen
to your child read every
night and ask them com-
prehension questions. In
Math we're reviewing the
concepts that we have in-
troduced this year. We
had a great time celebrat-
ing Valentine's Day on
Tuesday. This was special
day for our students.
February is a very busy
month for it to be so
short, .First, third grade
students worked hard to
find out who Punx-
sutawney Phil is and
what he does each Feb. 2.
Then we have been dis-
cussing black Americans
who have made a differ-
ence in the world. We've
also been learning about
several of our presidents.
Most excitedly, third
graders worked on mak-
ing valentines for all their
friends and then deliv-
ered them in their beauti-
fully decorated valentine
bags. We're also keeping
in mind that the FCAT
begins on Monday, Feb.
27. We wish fourth grade
best wishes on their
FCAT writes. We know
they'll do well. Birthdays
this month are Lance
Griner on the 6th, Gabe
Thomason on the 11th
and Trenton Stormant on


News


the 14th. Happy birthday.
Our student of the week
is McKenna Manning.
Conner Hall, Caitlin
Hester, Lance Griner, and
Mrs. Howell traveled to
Lake City last Friday for
free personal pizzas for
meeting the January Piz-
za Book It! Reading goals.
On Tuesday morning,
Mrs. Howell's fourth
graders enjoyed breakfast
at a local restaurant be-
fore taking the FCAT
Writes!
Laura and Marie Bryan,
Casey and Misty Davis,
and Caitlin and Regina
Hester attended South
Hamilton's FCAT Prep
Night on Monday, Feb. 7,
to receive math and read-
ing information before
the FCAT at the end of
February.
The fourth grade wel-
comes Melissa Wilson to
our classroom
Fifth grade students
have been studying the
women's suffrage. We
read a story called I want
to vote by Zibby O'Neill.
Levi Alford, Khadijah
Richburgh, Daniela Tru-
jillo, Brianna Register,
Cody Beadles, Whitley
Reeves, Savannah Pruitt,
Brittany -Cheshire, Nor-
man Snyder, Jose Cortez,
Johndarius Bryant, Da-'
mon Bryant, 'and": Mr. '
Daniels traveled to Lake
City last Friday for free
personal pizzas for meet-
ing the January Pizza

Sixth grade has been
working hard this week
preparing for FCAT. Last
week we made terrari-
ums to go along with our
reading lesson on Mars.
Thanks for all the support
during FCAT night.
Next week we will wel-
come a new school nurse.
Mrs. Thomason began on
Feb. 13. Welcome, Mrs.
Thomason!!
Remember FCAT Ex-
plorer can be accessed at
home by visiting
www.fcatexplorer.com. If
you need your child's
username or password
contact your child's
teacher or Mr.'Daniels at
daniels_102@firn.edu or
397-4004.
FCAT Testing Week be-
gins Feb. 28. Parents, if
you would like to exam-
ine the sample science
textbooks up for district
adoption, stop by the
computer lab before
March 8. We would like
parental input into the
materials to be evaluated
by our school.
Reminder to parents:
please remember to send
notes with your
child/children if there is
a change in where they
are to go in the after-
noons. The students need
to know in the morning
where they are to go in
the afternoon. By doing
this, we hope it will help
ensure the safety of our
students in getting to and
from school safely. Safety
should always be on our
minds. Also, the instruc-
tional school day begins
at 8 a.m. and the instruc-
tional day ends at 3 p.m.
It is very important that
children get to. school on
time and picked up in a


timely manner.

Gladys Corbett Davis celebrates 91st birthday


,.E- .'


Financial aid workshop for


college-bound students


North Florida Communi-
ty College is participating in
College Goal Sunday to help
high school students com-
plete financial aid forms for
college. NFCC and area vol-
unteers are holding finan-
cial aid sessions at Hamilton
and Jefferson County High
Schools from 2 p.m. until 5
p.m., Sunday Feb. 19, for
high school students and
their parents.
College Goal Sunday is a
statewide event focused on
helping high school seniors
complete federal financial


aid forms (the FAFSA). The
one day event targets stu-
dents who need financial
aid to attend college and
who need help applying for
that aid.
Students should attend
with a parent or guardian
and bring their parents'
completed 2005 IRS 1040
tax return or other 2005 in-
come and benefits informa-
tion. If parents are unable to
attend, students may attend
alone and bring their par-
ents' income information. If
families haven't completed


their taxes, financial aid
professionals will be able to
help fill out the rest of the
FAFSA form and give in-
structions for the financial
portion.
For more information
contact Nancy McClellan at
850-973-1661, email mcclel-
lann@nfcc.edu, or visit the
College Goal Sunday web-
site at www.floridacollege-

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Wow! It was cold when I
opened my back door this
morning. I do not have an
outside thermometer, so I
checked the temperature
inside the car and it read
380. I know it had to be
much colder than this. Lis-
tening to television, it was
colder in our area ard will
be even colder during the
week.
This reminded me when
we were trying to get set-
tled. This was when Wade
was getting ready to locate
after graduation from den-
tal school. My only request
was that we move south,
which we did, and are so
grateful we, landed in
Jasper. This temperature is
mild compared to some
places we have lived, and
the', people are warm,,
which is most important.
One can really appreciate it
here if you have ever lived
anywhere else. You have
often heard me say how
long it took me to feel at


home here, and I still feel
that way, about five min-
utes; we have never regret-
ted it a minute. Not only
the weather, but mostly the
warmth of the people.
A celebration was in order
recently in honor of. Mrs.
Gladys Corbett Davis' 91st
birthday! Mrs. Davis is the
widow of the late Harry
Davis, Sr. (who was special
to all of us) who passed
away in April, 1999. The cel-
ebration was held on Feb. 4
(her birthday was Feb. 3) at
the home of Cissy, Don and
Walt Pritchard. Cissy is one
of her grandchildren.
All six of Mrs. Davis' sis-
ters and brother were there:
James Corbett (Ruth); Mary
Tomlinson; Lucille Petty
(Leo); Myrtice Hale ,(His-
ton); Helenr Sears'-and Con-
nie Register. Her children:
Carolyn Burnham (Ray);
Harry Davis, Jr. (Evelyn);
Barbara Jaeger (Ralph); John
Davis (Sherrie) were there as
well as many of her grand-


children, nieces, nephews
and friends.
A delicious meal of grilled
chicken, pork and baked
ham, with many different
home-cooked vegetables and
desserts was served for
lunch and supper, and en-
joyed 'by all. We wish you
many more happy birth-
days, Mrs. Davis, and look
forward to writing about the
92nd.
Ulma Braswell is home af-
ter spending several days in
South Georgia Medical Cen-
ter, suffering with shingles,
and any of us who have en-
dured this discomfort can of-
fer our sympathies. Rest,
peace and quiet are my pre-'
scription for such discom-
fort.
We appreciate the emails
we have received from
friends in town and from
those of you who are away
from us, and our next week
will be devoted to you. We
would love to hear from
many more. I really appreci-
ate it aiid others tell me they
are glad to hear from other
friends. Hope all of you will
have had a great Valentine's
Day.

Critical dates are coming
and going,. and many
prospective college students
are completely unaware.
They are called the financial
aid priority deadlines. Prac-
tically every college has one,
and missing them can cost
college students' thousands
of dollars in available mon-
ey.
The financial aid priority
deadlines are the dates col-
leges want their prospective
students to have all their fi-
nancial information forms
filed by. These forms can in-
clude FAFSA forms, CSS
Profiles, and the school's
own forms. This can be con-
fusing to families because
many of these deadlines are
before they have their in-
come tax returns completed
or even have their W-2 forms
from their employers. Con-
sequently, the deadlines pass
and the forms are not filed
on time.

forms is certainly one of the
costliest mistakes parents
can make," said Scott Ander-
son, president of RealCol-
legeSavings.com, Parents
and students should not wait
for complete tax information
for two very important rea-
sons.
First these forms are de-
signed to be completed with
estimates for your 2005 in-
.come. The FAFSA can be
easily updated later, and the
profile only needs to be up-
dated if the colleges to which
your student applies request
updates.
SThen these priority dates
are the dates upon which the
colleges begin disbursing
money to students. Those
students that are at the be-
ginning of the line when the
buckets are full are in a far
better position to get gener-
ous financial offers from col-
leges. Those students who
do not get their forms in be-
fore the deadlines will be
scraping the bottom of the.
barrel and run the risk of los-
ing out on funds.

A few colleges have finan-
cial aid priority deadlines as
early as January, but most
colleges have deadlines in
February and March. Their
deadlines can be identified
by going to the financial aid
sections of the colleges' web-
sites, checking the college in-
formation sent to your stu-
dent in the mail, or checking
college guides from sources
such as collegeboard.com or
Barron's.
Making sure to get your fi-
nancial paperwork in by the
priority deadlines is just one
step parents and students
can take to minimize theii
costs for college. Other steps
to minimizing costs can in-
cude: lowering the expected
family contribution; identify-
ing the generous colleges
that are far more likely tc
give students money; posi-
tioning students with col-
leges to increase their appeal,
and using smart cash-flow
management techniques. Tc

techniques go to www.Real-

Battle of Olustee reenactment


Florida's largest
The Battle of Olustee was fought on Feb. 20, 1864. Full-
scale artillery, mounted cavalry, and three African American
regiments, including the 54th Massachusetts took part in the
fighting that day. The Battle of Olustee was Florida's largest
Civil War battle, resulting in 2,807 casualties and a Confed-
erate victory.
More than 2,000 living history enthusiasts gather each year
at Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park to present lifelike
and historically accurate portrayals of the war's toll on both
civilian and military life. The rigors of a poorly trained med-
ical corps working,in field hospitals lacking even basic sani-
tation during the American Civil War will be featured in liv-
ing history demonstrations at the Battle of Olustee Reenact-
ment this year on Friday through Sunday, Feb: 17 through
Feb. 19 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Medical demonstrations are planned twice daily on Satur-
day and Sunday. Period music concerts, military camps and
drills, and the lives of both white and black civilians during
the war are portrayed by reenactors. The living history
weekend features a Civil War-era battle reenactment on Sat-
urday, as well as the reenactment of the Battle of Olustee on
Sunday. Saturday's battle begins at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday's
battle is at 1:30 p.m.
Surgeons and medics treated more than 10 million cases of
disease aid injury during the four years of armed conflict.
Their experiences marked the birth of modem medicine in
the United States, bringing improvements in the tools and
delivery of medical care, and signaling the entry of women


Civil War battle
in the medical profession.
More than 600,000 men perished during the Civil War
from disease and injury. Many of the wounded were hit by
the Minniee ball," a .58-caliber iron slug fired from a high-ve-
locity, muzzle-loading rifle. The minnie ball shattered bones
and usually proved fatal if it lodged in the head or abdomen.
Three-fourths of the wounds inflicted during the war af-
fected the body's limbs. Historians estimate that 75 percent
of all operations performed during the war were amputa-
tions, and 75 percent of those patients survived. Women vol-
unteered their time and energy to care for the wounded, in-
cidentally creating the nursing profession.
Educational programs are planned for Friday's School
Day when both public and private school students are invit-
ed to attend the reenactment, free of charge. School groups
may contact Mitzi Nelson at 397-4461 to register for the
event.
Admission on Saturday and Sunday is $4 for adults and $2
for students. Children age five and under are admitted free
of charge. Food concessions will be available. Pets are not al-
lowed at Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park during the
reenactment.
The park is located on US 90, 15 miles east of 1-75 and Lake
City, and 50 miles west of Jacksonville and 1-95.

toric State Park's web address at

eagerly anticipating FCAT
and Stanford-10 testing.
Testing will begin on Mon-
day, Feb. 27 and continue
through March 8 for some
grade levels. Fourth graders
recently completed the writ-
ing portion of the FCAT. If
you have questions pertain-
ing to the assessments that

untary uniform proposal. A
uniform committee is now
meeting to determine the
color scheme and guidelines
for the voluntary uniforms.
Many public schools have
implemented uniformity in
dress and have achieved
academic success, increased
student self-esteem, de-


creased disciplinary actions
and many more benefits.
CHE is anticipating the ben-
efits of voluntary uniforms
in the future!
Sixth grade is doing its
part to rock the FCAT at the

graders have also started to
work on a school newspa-
per. We are all looking for-
ward to the first edition.
Third graders recently
completed their embryology
unit with Mr. Greg Hicks,
Hamilton County 4-H
agent. Students in Ms. Sue
Burkett's and Mrs. Gwen
Howell's third grade classes
observed the incubated eggs
for several weeks, and anx-
iously awaited the chicks'
arrival, last week. After sev-
eral days, the chicks were
sent home with students
having parent permission.

All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
just a servant of.the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you
have ahy problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.

Seeing Is Enjoying:

Tips for Healthy Eyes
A telltale sign that you're not as young as you used to be is when your senses start to diminish. Whether you're
not hearing things as well as you once could or you've noticed your vision is no longer as sharp as it once was,
dealing with diminishing senses can be a difficult adjustment to make. While such changes are inevitable, there
are steps you can take to lessen the blow, especially if you've yet to reach an age where your senses have
begun to lose a step.
Since March is Save Your Vision Month, here are a few steps, courtesy of Prevent Blindness America, the
country's leading eye health and safety organization, that people of all ages can take to minimize how much their
vision diminishes.
Schedule regular visits to the eye doctor. Eye checkups are just as important as overall health checkups.
While not everyone needs to go every year, those 55 and older should go at least once every other year, or once
a year, if possible. It's also important not to wait until something bothers you to see your eye doctor. Even if you
feel as though your vision is fine, if you haven't visited an eye doctor in a while, it's still a good idea to get your
eyes checked. Many eye afflictions offer no noticeable symptoms in their early stages, requiring a trained eyecare
professional to recognize an illness.
Also, since vision changes frequently, getting your eyes examined on a regular basis is important to make sure
you're still wearing the most appropriate prescription.
Make some easy lifestyle changes. If you've never been one to wear sunglasses, you might want to start.
According to the Radiation Safety Committee at Australia's Charles Sturt University, sunglasses protect people
from solar ultraviolet radiation, something that can be very damaging. Ultraviolet-B radiation (UVB) can be
especially damaging and has even been implicated in inducing skin cancer in addition to being harmful to a
person's vision. While sunglasses should be worn year-round when it's light out, they should be particularly worn.
during summertime, when UVB radiation is three times as high as it is during winter..
Another easy lifestyle change is to improve lighting around your house. If you've always been fond of dimly lit
rooms, it's a good idea to add more lighting now, as better and more well-lit rooms are an aid to diminished
vision,
Take care of yourself. Proper healthcare is especially vital to maintaining strong vision. One of the most
damaging side effects of diabetes is visual impairment. Avoiding diabetes can be done with proper diet and
ample exercise. Monitoring your blood pressure regularly as well as your cholesterol level is good for overall
health and can help you avoid diseases such as diabetes that may ultimately affect your vision in a negative way.
Taking care of yourself is also essential even for those people who have already begun to experience
diminishing vision. Any medications you might be prescribed should not be taken lightly, and dosage
recommendations should be strictly followed. If you wear glasses, make sure you always have them with you or
wear them wherever you go if need be. Also, take note of any vision aids that might be helpful. These can include
a magnifying glass if you're reading something with smaller print, such as a newspaper or magazine, or high-
intensity reading lamps that will help you see the words on the page more clearly. Also, many bookstores now
carry large-print editions of popular books that can make reading a lot less stressful on your eyes. If a bookstore
doesn't carry such books, a visit to the store's Web site (il its a large chain) or even a phone call to the book's
publishing house will let you know if the book comes n large print
