Pr Ir I lv-or growth, waI v-.-.er ....s business lead-



Prepare for growth, water managers tell business leaders


SRWMD Deputy Director
Joe Flanagan discusses the
economic challenges
caused by population and
visitor growth. Photo Submitted

An increase of residents
and visitors over the next
several decades will create
greater economic opportu-
nities and environmental
challenges for Hamilton
County, local business
leaders were told recently.
"Priorities, partnerships
and passion" will be the
keys to successfully meet-
ing those challenges,
Deputy Director Joe Flana-
gan of the Suwannee River
Water Management Dis-
trict told an audience of 40
Hamilton County Cham-
ber of Commerce members
and other invited guests at
a luncheon at the Telford
Hotel in White Springs on
Thursday.
The north-central Flori-
da region, which includes
Hamilton County, is ex-
pected to experience a sig-
nificant spike in popula-
tion growth through 2030,
according to the latest fig-
ures from the University
of Florida's Bureau of Eco-


nomic and Business Re-
search (BEBR). And
though current projec-
tions for Hamilton are
lower than those for some
neighboring counties,
towns such as Jasper, Jen-
nings and White Springs
still must prepare for fu-
ture growth, Flanagan
said.
"Balancing the environ-
ment and the economy
will be especially impor-
tant in a region where the
two are so closely tied,"
Flanagan explained, cit-
ing the Suwannee River


Wilderness Trail, state
parks, local springs, and
District lands as examples
of valuable resource-
based economic develop-
ment opportunities.
Growth will present
other challenges to infra-
structure, transportation
and regulations, said
Flanagan, adding the Dis-
trict wants to form part-
nerships with cities and
counties to address them
together.
A streamlined permit-
ting process, and financial
and technical assistance


with water supply,
stormwater and waste-
water projects are exam-
ples of the District's ef-
forts to assist communi-
ties. Another example is
the District's assistance
with updating FEMA
flood maps and helping to
create online versions for
the worldwide web.
This was the second in a
series of presentations the
District plans to make to
chambers 'of commerce
throughout the region in
2006. The next presenta-
tion will be on March 21


in Madison.County.
The District also will
host a meeting from 6
a.m. until 8 p.m., tonight,
March 9, for city officials
within the District to
learn more about the GIS
(geographic information
systems) mapping pro-
gram. The meeting will be
held at the District, corner
of US 90 and CR 49 in
Live Oak.

Working families


encouraged to take


advantage of tax credits


Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation and'
Workforce Florida, Inc., in
partnership with the HR
Florida State Council, urges
Florida employers to help
their employees take advan-
tage of the Earned Income
Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC
is a refundable federal in-
come tax credit for low to
moderate income working
individuals. and families.
Taxpayers who qualify and
claim the credit can pay less
federal tax, pay no tax, or
even get a tax refund of up
to $4,400.
Based on information
from the IRS it is projected/
that as much as $635 million
goes unclaimed by the esti-
mated ,350,000 working
families and individuals in
Florida who are not taking
advantage of the EITC. Lo-
cal workforce and HR pro-
fessionals, in partnership
with other key community
organizations around the
state will work together to
help working Floridians ap-
ply for available tax credits.
Employers can learn how
the EITC can help their em-
ployees boost their wages at
no additional cost to the
business. With the tax re-
fund, an, individual with a
$7 hourly wage can realize
the equivalent of about $9
an hour. The impact goes
beyond the individual and
their family as local commu-
nities benefit from addition-
al consumer activity.
Congress' originally ap-


proved the tax credit legis-
lation in 1975. The maxi-
mum benefit at that time
was $400 per year and has
grown to $4,400 for tax year
2005. Income and family
size determine the amount
of the EITC. Allowable
earnings cap also varies
with family size, but can be
as high as $37,000. When the
EITC exceeds the amount of
taxes owed, it results in a
tax refund to those who.
claim and qualify for the
credit.
According to the Center
on Budget and Policy Prior-
ities 1.4 million Florida
workers received the EITC
in 2003 (the most recent year
with complete data) bring-
ing into the state economy
an additional $2.7 billion.
Many working families will
qualify for both the EITC
and the Child Tax Credit
(CTC). The EITC will be
larger, but the CTC can also
provide a significant in-
come boost.
In addition to an end-of-
year lump sum refund,
most individuals who quali-
fy for the EITC can also get a
weekly or periodic pay sup-
plement at no cost to their
employers by filing a W-5
"EIC Advance Payment
Certificate" with HR/pay-
roll, .thereby increasing net
pay and usually.j6b reten-
tion and satisfaction.
Some Florida employers
provide a W-5 to all their
new hires enabling those
who qualify to take home a

Spiritual

Guidance

First Presbyterian Church of Jasper ....


Peaks and Valleys


Read Matthew 17:1-9


The passage from
Matthew is about the trans-
figuration of Jesus.
Matthew, Mark, and Luke
all tell about the transfigura-
tion; it is an event of
supreme importance.
Jesus took his three closest
friends, Peter, James, and
John, up a mountain to be
alone and to pray. It was on
this mountain that Jesus was
transfigured in the presence
of the three disciples. His
clothes became "dazzling
white," and then Elijah and
Moses' appeared with him.
The disciples were terri-
fied, trying to comprehend


this mystical moment. Peter
couldn't get his human
mind in spiritual gear and
said, "Rabbi, let us build
three shelters," meaning let
us preserve this moment for-
ever.
When we have special
peak experiences we, like
Peter, try to hold onto them
as long as we can. These are
the precious times we cling
to, not wanting them to pass
on and become another, of,
many. memories. The peak
experiences of life give life
its, sweetness, in contrast to
the daily crush of living life
in the valleys. But we can't
always live on the peaks.
As suddenly as the mo-


- -~DZSPRq~DI


ment had come, it was over.
Jesus. stood among them
alone again, just as he had
been before, once again the
sole focus of their faith. And
together they came back
down the mountain, into the
valley.
It had been a great mo-
ment, but life doesn't hap-
pen on the mountain peak. It
is through living in the val-
leys that we experience
growth. We grow as a result
of our wrestling with diffi-
culty, with those things we
wouldn't choose for our-
selves to deal with, like the
death of a loved one, physi-
cal illness or personal limita-
tion, separation or alienation
from a family member, or
even when we experience
failure or loss. When we face
them .and struggle with
them we grow, and occa-
sionally we get surprised
with a mountaintop mo-
ment, a peak moment that
encourages us for those long,
seasons in the valleys await-


Pat&


ing us.
Jesus and his friends came
back down from the moun-
tain peak into the valley
with choices to make. Jesus
made the choice to go on to
Jerusalem. There would be
more choices to make there.
The disciples made the
choice to take up their cross-
es and follow Jesus, even
though, they still couldn't
fully comprehend what that
meant. Our choices shape
who we are, and our choices
disclose our commitments.
We come down from the
mount of transfiguration
knowing, at least in part,
what the sacred limits are.
We come down with Elijah's
warning that manyy gods
will compete for our alle-
giance, but there's only one
worthy;, only one. It's your.
choice. The right choice will
help you enjoy the peaks,
and be prepared for the val-
leys, whenever they come.
Worship this Sunday in
the church of your choice.


The family of Alberta Mizell Cross wishes to express our
profound thanks to the community for your persistent
outpouring of prayers, love and .support during our
beloved's illness and upon her recent death.
The Alberta Mi i:il Cross Family



I wish to thank everyone who participated in my "Last
Day at Work."' The food was great! I appreciate all the
cards, gifts, calls but most of all the "hugs." I have many
happy memories and will never forget our friendship.
May God bless all of you.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


G ood morn-
ing! It is
good to be
bac k.
Thanks to
all of you who said you
missed me last week, hope
that will not happen again
anytime soon. There is
much sickness around and
we wish quick recovery to
all of you who have been
having difficulties.
If what the old adage
says about the month of
March is true, or maybe
this is just a "saying" from
where I have lived, .grow-
ing up it was said that if
March came in like a lamb
it would go out like a lion,
or just the opposite, If this
runs true we may be in for
some bad weather the lat-
ter part of March, but we
hope for the best. One
night the weather man
said at 11 o'clock that the
weather was nice and calm'
but by morning it would
be brisk, and it was. We
love the slow-changing of
the seasons, easing from
cold to warm to warmer,
and then reversing. We
learned many years ago to
dress in layers, being able
to add something or re-
move a layer as the weath-
er changed.
In a telephone conversa-
tion with Thelma Mathis I
learned that Thelma is re-
cuperating from a fall as.
she slipped in water out-
side her home, injuring
her shoulder. She has been
stayingat the home of her
sister, Evelyn Padgett.
People had asked about
her and we want to assure
friends that she is doing
better. I usually saw them
at the grocery store or up-
town and had assumed
that maybe they had gone
to Franklin, they love the
mountains. Thelma won-


dered about the weather
up there; they had snow,
sleet, rain and ice a few
days before but in check-
ing the weather through
the Franklin Press on line,
the temperature on that
date was 650, about what it
was here. We never know
about the weather any-
where.
On Sunday, March 5,
Katie and Cieria Bassett re-
ceived the sacrament of
Baptism at First Presbyter-
ian Church, Jasper. Rev-
erend Doug Hilliard, Pas-
tor, administered the
sacrament, assisted by Lin-
da Taylor, representing
the session of the church
and a friend of the family.
Friends and family joined
in adding their blessings
for the young ladies. The
family gathered at H&F
following the church ser-
vice.
Trey Norris celebrated
his 10th birthday last Fri-
day with a Treasure Hunt
birthday party at his home
with his parents, Ben arid
Leigh Ann, sister Kaleigh,
Grandmother Ann Shep-
ard and me, and a host of
friends who had a lovely
day to play outside. It was
a fun day. Other adults in-
cluded some parents and
David Law, his' teacher
and friend of the family.
His age is now in double
digits; they seem' to fly af-
ter this.
Pastor Doug and Ann
Hilliard attended a
"March Forth on March
Fourth" at Camp Mont-
gomery, the Presbyterian
Conference Center for our
area. They reported an ex-
citing day. Others had
planned to go, were un-
able to attend due to ill-
ness.
Last Sunday was Pastor
Appreciation Service at


First Baptist, Jasper, hon-
oring Pastor Bill Floyd and
Pastor Roger Hutto. It was
a great day of celebration
for all in attendance.
The March general meet-
ing of the Jasper Woman's
Club will be Friday, March
10, at the Club House (that
is this Friday). The hostess
committee is Fine Arts,
Willene Drury, Chair-
woman. It is our under-
standing that she has a
wonderful surprise pro-
gram. The Club is trying to
prepare a new cookbook
reprint and asks the mem-
bers to bring favorite
recipes. I am sure you
have some new ones and
old ones you would like to
see in the new cookbook. If
you are not a member or
do not plan to be there, get
them to a member to they
can be included.
I was a guest of Dorothy
Kish on Monday morning
at Dixie Grill for breakfast
(a group of friends meet
every morning there. That
is in Live Oak in case you
don't know). Among those
in the group are Ken and
Mary Woods. They are al-
ways interested to hear
about Hamilton County
folks.
Did you watch any of
the old Andy Griffith
shows'over the weekend, a
tribute to Don Knotts.
They were a bright spot
among some of the shows
offered now. I was not
feeling well, they brought
laughter and joy to me.
Relay for Life is off and
running in Jasper, for
April 7 and 8, if you want
information get in touch
with Sue Allen or Kim
Fenneman. It will be the
first' time for trying an
"into the night" program
and your cooperation is
greatly needed. Hope you

ow of Christopher Reeve.
Dana came public with the
fact that she had lung can-

died at the age of 44. She
has stated that she never
smoked but worked for
many years in clubs as an
entertainer, where there
was always much smoking
and felt that this may have
contributed to her prob-

The Lions Club of Jasper
held its annual Sweetheart
Dinner at the First Presby-
terian Church of Jasper on
Valentines Day, Feb. 14.
President Wayne
Mitchell welcomed the


members and guests and
Mr. Devane offered the in-
vocation. The delicious
dinner was prepared by
Lions member and owner
of Roosters restaurant,
Michelle Walls.
The highlight of the
evening was the entertain-


amazing performances of the


ment. During the meal,
William Mitchell treated
everyone to his renditions
of many standard songs on
the piano. His mastery of
the keyboard was enjoyed
by all.
Then. Greta Smidt,
daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
Renaldas Smidtas, sang a
variety of songs, mesmer-
izing everyone with her
ability and vocal range.
After a great 45 minute
concert she was given a
standing ovation' by the
guests. Greta states that
her role models include
Charlotte Church and
Sarah Brightman.
Anyone who has the op-
portunity to hear either
Greta or William is sure to
be in for a great perfor-
mance.
The Lions Club meets
the second and fourth
Tuesday of the month at 7
p.m., in Roosters restau-
rant across from the Jasper
Post Office. The Lions
Club, long known for as-
sistance .with eyeglasses,
also provides a scholarship
each year to a deserving
Hamilton County High
School student.
The Lions Club wel-
comes new members, both
men .and women, and
prospective members are
invited to attend any meet-
ing. Newer residents of the
area are especially encour-
aged to attend and join the
Lions. Fellowship, the op-
portunity to be of service
to the community and a
great chance to meet your
fellow residents are some
of the benefits to member-
ship. We hope to see you
soon.

White Sprint






By Johnny Bullard


Even though we have
two more weeks till the
"official" first day of spring
at this writing, all signs
here in our beloved Hamil-
ton County, with the ex-
ception of one or two, indi-
cate that our spring has
sprung. However, it is
those one or two indica-
tors, that to me, at least, be-
ing a native Florida Crack-
er that cause me to be a bit
more pragmatic than some
about whether or not, our
"true spring" has arrived
or whether, as was termed
by a lot our old timers we
are having a "fall spring;"
"false spring" for all of you
not from here.
I have not yet seen any
buds on the old fashioned
crepe myrtles, nor have I
noted any signs of budding
on old fashioned seedling
pecan trees. When I do, I
will feel a bit more confi-
dent that our danger of
frost is over. I will enjoy
and be blessed by every
wonderful, sunshine filled
day that the good Lord sees
fit to send. This is one of
my favorite seasons of the
entire year. Let's all enjoy
every glorious moment of
it!!!
Don't forget the Sixth
Annual Wild Azalea Festi-
val. White Springs will cel-
ebrate this annual event
with regional foods, arts
and crafts, music, and the
Little Miss Azalea Contest
on Saturday, March 18, be-
ginning at 10 a.m. For more.
information call the Nature
and Heritage Tourism Cen-
ter at 397-4461. /
As spring comes into her.
"full flower," we are also
reminded of the upcoming
Antique Tractor' and En-
gine Show, as well as East-
er Sunrise Service, both an-
nual events at the Stephen
Foster. The annual Antique
Tractor and Engine Show
will be held. at the Foster
Center on the Weekend of
March 31 and Easter Sun-
rise Service will be held on
Sunday, April 16. I will be
sending out letters to re-'
mind our Easter Sunrise
,Committee in the not too
distant future for planning
purposes. This will be our
39th, annual Easter Sunrise
Service. For more informa-


tion, call the park at 397-
2733.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Mrs.,
Jessie Newsome, White
Springs. A lifetime resident
of the White Springs area,
Mrs. Newsome was well
and favorably known
throughout our area. Our
sympathy is also extended
to the family of Mrs. Alber-
ta Cross, Jasper. The fami-
lies have the prayers of our
White Springs community.
Judy Pruitt and a group
of area ladies ,who are a
part of the Master Garden-
er's group are busy work-
ing on some beautification
projects around the White
Springs area. We appreci-
ate the work done by this
group. Our north Florida
has much to offer in the
way of natural beauty, and
I am pleased that many of
our tourist attractions are
"catching on."
Anne Daniel Miller, Al-
pharetta, Ga., was in White
Springs this past weekend
visiting her mother, Mrs.
Virginia J. Daniel who is a
patient at the Health Cen-
ter of Lake City.
I would like to alert my
readers that I am no longer
serving as President of the
Stephen Foster Citizens Sup-
port Organization. I served
as president of the organiza-
tion for fifteen years and
have thoroughly enjoyed
my time with the organiza-
tion. However, the time has
come for me to pass on the
baton. I am so happy that
Jean Davidoff is serving in
the capacity of president.
Jean will do a wonderful job,
and I wish her well.,
I will still be serving ac-
tively as a member of the
Stephen Foster Citizens
Support Organization and
will still support Stephen
Foster and its programs. I
simply want to apprise
area citizens of the fact that
SI will no longer be able to
sign you up as volunteers
or to procure Festival pass-
es for anyone. To volunteer
during the Festival or to
join the organization, call,
Elaine McGrath, Festival
Director, at 397-4461.
I made a mistake in last
week's column, I wrote
that Ken Crawford visited


at the farm weekend before
last. It was Ken Buchanan.
Sorry for the misprint. Ken
Buchanan, Loxahatchee,
was here for the weekend
of Feb. 24, along with
Frank Thomas, Lake
Wales, and Bobby Hicks,
Tampa.
Kudos to the Town of
White Springs for working
really hard tb clean up the
mess near the historic
Pritchard Tea House that
sets behind the White
Springs Motel. We appreci-
ate all your efforts. The
work on the Nature Area in
front of the White Springs
School is coming along,
and we do appreciate all
the leadership from the
town on this worthwhile
project.
Thank you to Robert
Townsend, Town Manag-
er, Honorable Joseph
McKire, Mayor of White
Springs, the White Springs
- Town Council, as well as
all of the Town's employ-
ees. We appreciate each
one and all the good work
they do for our town each
and every day.

lowing in prayer: Virginia

store in addition to the
first emergency homeless
shelters in Columbia
County.: Her vision is to
bring the church ministry
and outreach ministry
programs together with a
Christ centered curricu-
lum. Dr. Steele embraces
the fact that the Christian
approach to alcoholism
and drug treatment pro-
duces "the most meaning-
ful and productive re-
sults."

dlestick House for single
homeless men in 1993. The
house, located at 813 N.
Hernando St. in Lake City,

dren and families. It was

cated at 700 .N. Columbia
St. in Lake City. The house
also provides counseling.
Ezekiel's House, located
at 809 N. Hernando St. in
Lake City, was opened in
1998 for drug, and alcohol
addicted men. It has 32
beds and requires a mini-
mum of six months com-
mitment from the partici-
pant. During the program,
each individual completes
an intensive study in the
disease of alcoholism and.
drug addiction, the treat-
ment, recovery and after-
care. They also participate
in a process., emphasizing
the deeper commitment
and understanding of
"walking out," and re-


ceive training that inspires
men to continue to 'work
in regenerations programs
and local churches. All
participants learn how to
fill out a job application,
develop job and people
skills, and how to use
their skills and talents.
The SVRM also serves
two balanced meals seven
days a week at the Lad
Soup Kitchen, located at
20 Escambia Street in Lake

What you should know about menopause


(NAPSl)-According to a new survey of
female executives, menopause is moving
out of the shadows and into the boardroom.
The survey, conducted among members
of the National Association for Female
Executives (NAFE), found that half of the
respondents currently in menopause (45
percent) said it was worse than expected,
over one-fifth (22 percent) said it was much
worse than expected and three-quarters (75
percent) are concerned their menopausal
symptoms will occur at inconvenient times.
Menopause is the natural stage in a
woman's aging process when her ovaries
stop producing estrogens. Menopause can
occur naturally or may be induced by
surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Since
estrogens are largely responsible for
developing and maintaining the female
reproductive system, reduced levels can
cause uncomfortable symptoms.
The survey revealed that 88 percent of
NAFE members surveyed have had some
experience with menopause and two thirds
(67 percent) of this group have experienced
menopausal symptoms once a week or
more.
95 percent of this group experience
physical symptoms-most commonly, hot
flashes (80 percent) and night sweats (74
percent);
79 percent of this group experience
symptoms that are emotional or affect their
mental functioning, such as forgetfulness or
diminished concentration (57 percent),
irritability (53 percent) and mood changes
(53 percent).
According to the American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG),
the first wave of baby boomer women (born
1945-1960) are now entering meno-pause
and another 20 million will reach
menopause in the next decade. These
women must weigh the risks and benefits of
treating their menopausal symptoms with
hormone therapy.
, :A Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study,
sponsored by the National Institutes of
Health, found that there was potentially

increased health risk associated with use of
estrogens with progestin at higher doses or
for extended periods of time.
According to Diane DiLalla, age 56, "When
I turned 50 I started having hot flashes and
they were very uncomfortable, especially at
work. At first, my doctor suggested I try some
herbal remedies but they didn't work for me. I
was concerned about taking hormone
therapy but my doctor told me I could take
Cenestin, which is a plant based estrogen
therapy, to treat my menopausal symptoms."
Her doctor's viewpoint is echoed by several
professional organizations, including the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and
North American Menopause Society (NAMS),
which recommend hormone therapy for the
treatment of menopausal symptoms at the
lowest doses for the shortest duration.
According to James A. Simon, MD, clinical
professor of obstetrics and gynecology,
George Washington University, Washington
D.C., Medical Director, The Women's Health
Research Center@ in Laurel, Maryland, and
immediate past president of NAMS, whether
or not to use hormone therapy is a personal
decision. "A woman needs to weigh the
impact of her menopausal symptoms on her
personal and work life with her individual
health status and history."
