Workshop begins


planning for


influenza pandemic
What do a hurricane and an influenza pandemic have
in common? Both can disrupt normal daily routines and
cause loss of income and even loss of life. And both re-
quire preparation and training by medical personnel, law
enforcement officials, government entities, schools and
business owners as well as the general public.
The federal government, state governments, communi-
ties and businesses are now making plans to prepare for
and respond to an influenza pandemic. Due to Florida's
encounters with hurricanes, the state is one of the few
that is experienced in dealing with a major crises.
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) hosted a
Pandemic Influenza Workshop on Thursday, March 2, at
the Hamilton County Health Department in Jasper to
'discuss the impact of a flu pandemic on the health care

Independent consultant.- Frank Anderson and his wife, Jacque, feel
that Trinity Community Hospital (TCH) serves an important need in
the commiinit\. That is why they came to Jasper in 2000 to oversee the
S medical laboratory at TCH. And that is why they have returned sever-
al htmes to help improve and upgrade the lab, which is fully licensed
and state and federally accredited.
"Our goal is to achieve more efficient and better patient care,"
Jacque Anderson said.
'\Ve are part of the long term commitment the hospital is making
for future grow\ th." Frank Anderson said. "Growth is the key ele-
ment."
As part ct that gro\w'th, in the past year the Andersons have
J added two new testing systems to the lab. The coagulation
studies instrument is used to test the clotting time of blood
for post-cardiac patients and those on anti-coagulants.

approximately 50 different
tests on a blood sample.
About two years ago, the
lab acquired a blood gas
analysis instrument, which
measures the acidity, oxy-
gen content and carbon
dioxide content of a pa-
tient's blood. These mea-
surements test the effec-
tiveness of oxygen therapy
and are useful in the care of
patients with respiratory
and lung conditions.
The certified medical
technicians can also per-
form Complete Blood
Counts (CBCs),' diabetic
testing and urinalysis.
They also have to calibrate
and run quality controls
every day on the equip-
ment, except for the coagu-
lation studies instrument.
It automatically runs a
quality control test every
eight hours. ..

system and the community as a whole.
Representatives from local medical facili-
ties, governments, law enforcement,
schools and businesses reviewed the ade-
quacy of current plans to cope with antic-
ipated events and identified gaps in coor-
dination among community partners.
The group began developing plans on
how to educate the public and healthcare
providers, how to deal with overbur-
dened hospitals and clinics, and how to
deal with closed businesses, schools and
government offices.

WHAT IS IT?
Pandemic flu is a global disease out-
break that occurs when a new influenza
virus appears that causes a serious illness.
People have little or no immunity to a
new virus and it can spread easily from
person to person. Currently there is no
pandemic flu.
Health care officials are concerned that
the Asian H5N1 avian virus, also known
as the avian influenza or the bird flu,
could mutate into a form that could be
spread from person to person. If this hap-
pens, the flu could develop into a pan-
demic that could disrupt businesses,
schools and the government.
Bird flu is caused by viruses that occur
naturally in wild birds. It is deadly to do-
mestic fowl and can be transmitted from
birds to humans. There is no indication
that the flu can be passed from person to
person. There is no human immunity and
no vaccine available.
There are three requirements needed to
create an influenza pandemic virus (1) a
new human influenza A subtype that (2)
causes serious illness and (3) spreads
rapidly from human to human. The first
two requirements have been met but not
the third, but each new human infection
is an opportunity for the virus to change.
Since 2003, the bird flu has been report-
ed in Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Indone-
sia, Japan, Laos, South Korea, Thailand,


Turkey and Iraq. In 2005 and 2006, wild
birds have carried the disease into south-
ern Europe and southwest Asia. There
are no known cases in the United States.
As of February 20, there have been 170
cases of bird flu in humans. Over half of
those 92 died as a result of the bird
flu. Most handled poultry and lived in a
country where there were outbreaks of
the flu in poultry.
There is no evidence so far that wild
birds have been the source of human in-
fection in Asia. The most common wild
bird hosts are waterfowl (ducks, geese
and swans) and shorebirds (wading
birds), gulls and terns. Unlike poultry,
wild birds generally do not get ill from
avian influenza viruses the Asian
avian virus is an exception. Mortality
has been reported in more than 60
species.

WHAT IS FLORIDA DOING?
Education is a key element of the
preparation. Continuing education will
be provided to emergency management
services, hospital staff and physicians.
The public needs to be taught the differ-
ence between seasonal flu and pandemic
flu and how to treat flu symptoms at
home.
The DOH is using various early warn-
ing systems to detect if a new flu virus
appears in Florida. Special physicians,
known as "sentinel physicians, will re-
port any unusual occurrences to the DOH
and the Centers for Disease Control
(CDC). Plans are in place for a database
to track daily hospital admissions and in-
fluenza-related deaths.
DOH laboratory facilities and staff have
been increased to allow for quicker diag-
nosis of bird flu should a case occur.
While there is no vaccine for the bird flu,
the department is preparing to distribute
available vaccines and anti-viral medi-
cines.
The Florida DOH has a full-time CDC
representative assigned to the Headquar-
ters to ensure rapid response and clear


communications between organizations.
The CDC has also increased its personnel
at the Miami Quarantine Station to pro-
vide services to the international ports of
entry into the state.
The Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
are providing bird surveillance services.
Unlike West Nile Virus, the bird flu is not
likely to cause the death a single bird, but
is more likely to cause the death of a
group of birds. Do not touch a dead bird.
Report it to the FWC and they will inves-
tigate to determine the risk of bird flu.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Practice good hygiene and teach it to
your children. Proper hand washing is
one of the most effective methods of pre-
venting the spread of the flu. Cover your
mouth when you cough or sneeze.
Learn home health care basics hydra-
tion (drink plenty of water and/or
Gatorade), bed rest and ways to reduce
fever.


Encourage sick students and employees
to stay at home. Plan ways to continue
operating schools and businesses if a sig-
nificant number of students or employees
are absent.
Plan for a possible loss of income if you
are sick, if you have to care for a family
member who is sick or if your workplace
is closed due to many people being sick.
Store a supply of bottled water and
food that will keep for a long time and
that does not have to be cooked. Try to fill
prescriptions several days before you run
out.
Talk to local public health officials and
health care providers about the symptoms
of a specific flu outbreak. Follow their rec-
ommendations for the prevention and
control of the flu.
Stay informed. Check the chart for web-
sites with information about seasonal and
pandemic flu.
For more information call the Hamilton
County Health Department at 792-1414.
To report a dead bird call the FWC at 1-
888-404-3922.

HOW DOES SEASONAL

FLU DIFFER FROM

PANDEMIC FLU?


SEASONAL FLU
Outbreaks follow predictable seasonal
plterns; occur annually, usually in win-.
ter, in temperate climates.
People usually have some immunity
built up from previous exposure to virus-
es.
Healthy adults are usually not at risk
for serious complications; the very
young, the elderly and those with certain
underlying health conditions are at in-
creased risk for serious complications.
Health systems can usually meet pub-
lic and patient needs.
Vaccine is developed based on known
flu strains and is available for annual flu
season.
Adequate supplies of anti-viral med-
ications are usually available.
Average U.S. deaths are approximately
36,000 per year.
Symptoms include fever, cough, runny
nose, muscle pain. Death is often caused
by complications, such as pneumonia.
Generally causes a modest impact on
society some school closing, encourage-
ment of people who are sick to stay
home.
Manageable impact on domestic and


world economy.

PANDEMIC IFLU ,
Occurs rarely (three times in 20th cen-
tury last in 1968).
No previous exposure with little or no
pre-existing immunity.
Healthy people may be at increased
risk for serious complications.
Health systems may be overwhelmed.
Vaccine probably would not be avail-
able in the early stages of a pandemic.
Effective anti-viral medications may be
in limited supply.
Number of deaths could be quite high
(e.g., U.S. 1918 death toll approximately
500,000).
Symptoms may be more severe and
complications more frequent.
May cause major impact on society -
widespread restrictions on travel, clos-
ings of schools and businesses, cancella-
tion of large public gatherings.
Potential for severe impact on domes-
tic and world economy.

Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Relay for
Life team for the School
Board/Administrative Of-
fices, I would like to take
this opportunity to thank
everyone who stopped by
for lunch for our fund rais-
er on March 10. We were
well pleased with the
turnout. Monies collected
will benefit the American
Cancer Society in the battle
against this horrendous
disease.
On a personal note, I.
would like to extend my
appreciation to those who
donated their time, both in


preparing items for the sale
and working during this
activity. Special thanks go
to Mr. Harry Pennington
and Mrs. Martha Butler for
their assistance in this pro-
ject, as well as to The Jasper
News for its advertisement
of this event.
Hamilton County's Relay
for Life will be held April 7-
8 at the old high school
track. The event will pro-
vide the opportunity to en-
joy an evening of fun, as
well as learn more about
the ACSis fight against can-
cer. Each of us knows
someone who has either
survived or succumbed to


this illness. I encourage
everyone to be a part of the
fight to find the cure.
Please mark your calen-
dars and make plans to vis-
it our team's booth (look for
the sign for "Team Par-
adise"). Bring your ap-
petites; if you missed our
sausage dogs and home-
made baked items last
week, well have them
again the night of the relay!
Activities for the young
ones are also planned.
We look forward to .see-
ing you there again,
thanks for your support!

Mystery dinner theater debuts


March 30 at the Mansion


Read Matthew 4:1-11

The scripture passage is
the story of Jesus' 40 days
of temptation by the devil
in the wilderness. Contem-
porary culture takes temp-
tation far too lightly and
makes a joke out of the
presence of evil. What if
Jesus had submitted to the
temptations he faced
there? What if Jesus had
jumped from the temple
roof? What if Jesus had
taken a shortcut to glory,
bypassing the cross? Be-
cause, yielding to tempta-
tions was not God's way!
The devil doesn't exist
only in the comics, and
certainly isn't to be taken
lightly. The devil isn't just
a superstition. The devil
has been remarkably suc-
cessful in convincing us
that evil doesn't really ex-
ist.
But scripture insists that
evil does exist. Call it
whatever you wish, but it
is real. We battle with evil
daily. We are tested daily.
We are tempted daily.
Matthew's account of
the temptations of Jesus af-
firms that evil is a power-


ful reality in the world,
and testing comes to us in
many ways.
We, like Jesus, are
tempted through our sens-
es. When we are hungry
we are vulnerable. When
we are thirsty we are sus-
ceptible. We need the kind
of nourishment that comes
through prayer and study
of God's Word. "Man does
not live by bread alone,
but by every Word that
proceeds from the mouth
of God."
We, like Jesus, are
tempted through feelings
of doubt and fear. We
grieve and cry out to God,
"Why?" We suffer and we
cry out to God, "Why?" In-
stead of crying out to God,
"Why?" we should rather
proclaim, "God loves me,
and will do for me only
what is right."
We, like Jesus, are
tempted through our hu-
man ambitions. Jesus was
tempted to take a shortcut,
to skip the crucifixion and
take the easier way. Does it
really matter how you ac-
complish God's purpose in
your life? Yes! Is the way
we live not more impor-


tant than what we end up
with? Yes! Too often the
evil one convinces us that

possessions, position and
success are the true mea-
sure of our worth, yet that
notion is not scriptural.
The devil left Jesus when
he realized he'd lost the
battle. Jesus knew and de-
pended on God's word. Je-
sus knew and quoted
scriptures. Jesus used
scripture as his weapon
against evil. But the devil
came back again and again
to tempt Jesus, just like he
always comes back to
tempt us. There was never
complete freedom from
temptation for Jesus and
there will never be free-
dom from temptation for
us either. We must be con-
stantly alert forever vigi-
lant.
We do not always live
like the children of God we
are created to be, fulfilling
the purposes for which we
were created. Sometimes
we're given opportunities
to do God's work, but the
devil diverts us. The de-
ceiver makes us question
God. Yes, we are tempted
in many ways but like Je-
sus we have God's word.
Claim it! Stand on it! Our
hope and sure defense is
God's word. Read it, medi-
tate on it, study it, and live
it.
Worship this Sunday in
the church of your choice.

Top 10 best bets for bass


By Bob Wattendorf, Wes
Porak, Micala Radney and
Phil Chapman

With more than 7,500
lakes to choose from, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) fisheries biologists
have picked the top 10 bass
fishing hot spots for 2006
and offer these sugges-
tions.
Lake George is located
northwest of Deland.
Wade-fish in eelgrass with
plastic worms and top-wa-
ter artificial lures. Use live
golden shiners for bass
during the spring spawn-
ing season in winter and
early spring, use deep-div-
ing crankbaits near old
docks.
Stick Marsh/Farm 13
Reservoir is located west of
Vero Beach. Plastic worms,
spinner baits, crankbaits,
soft jerkbaits and top-wa-
ter stick baits with pro-
pellers work well here, and
live golden shiners are
great for bass. This is a
catch-and-release-only
.lake for bass.
West Lake Tohopekaliga
(Lake Toho) is located
south of Kissimmee. Fish
for bass using live golden
shiners during early spring
inshore near native vegeta-
tion or topped-out hy-
drilla. Plastic worms and
rattling crankbaits are
good during warmer
months. There are two fish-
ing piers for boatless an-
glers.
Lake Kissimmee is locat-
ed south of town. lip plas-
tic baits or slow-troll live
golden shiners in bulrush,
hydrilla and lily pads for
spawning bass during win-
ter and spring. Use rattling
crankbaits, soft jerkbaits
and plastic worms during
summer and fall in open-
water or along edges of


vegetation. Fly-fishermen
can wade-fish and catch
bass on popping bugs dur-
ing spring and summer.
Rodman Reservoir is lo-
cated east of Gainesville.
Largemouth bass here are
most active during cooler
months. Use live golden
shiners, floated under a
cork or free-lined in the
"stump fields" along the
river channel. Also, try the
area between Cypress Bay-
ou and Kenwood Landing
with deep-diving and lip-
less crankbaits, spinner
baits and soft plastics.
Lake Tarpon is located
near Tampa/St. Peters-
burg. Try flipping or pitch-
ing plastic worms along
canal and bulrush edges.
Offshore, fish around
ledges, humps, coontail
and eelgrass beds with
shad-imitating jigs,
crankbaits, jerkbaits and
top-water baits or fish with
live, wild shiners or live
shad.
Lake Weohyakapka
(Lake Walk-in-Water) is lo-
cated south of Orlando.
Drift live, wild shiners
over hydrilla beds in the
northern half of the lake,
and use soft jerkbaits, lip-
less rattling crankbaits and
plastic worms in offshore
hydrilla. Pitch live wild
shiners and flip soft plastic
baits or spinner baits in the
bulrush and cattails in the
northern and eastern areas.
Summer months offer the
best action. Don't keep
any bass within the 15- to
24-inch range, and only
one keeper can be 24 inch-
es or longer.
Lake Istokpoga is located
in Highlands County. Jan-
uary through April, go for
the spawning bass in vege-
tation over sandy lake bot-
tom and around the is-
lands. Flip dark-colored,
soft plastics in bulrush and


submerged vegetation this
time of year. In spring and
summer, work top-water
lures and jerkbaits over
vegetation in the south half
of the lake. Weedless
spoons tipped with grub
tails and spinner baits
fished over pondweed
south of Bumblebee Island
are deadly on bass during
early morning. Abide by
the no-harvest regulation
for 15- to 24-inch bass and
the three-fish daily bag
limit, of which only one
keeper may be 24 inches or
longer.
Deer Point Lake is locat-
ed near Panama City.
Largemouth bass fishing
here is red hot in April and
May. Fish in- the old creek
channels with plastic
worms, diving crankbaits
or rattletraps. Bayou
George and the flats area
are also good. Try target-
ing docks and boathouses
along the creek channels
and at the mouth of Bayou
George. Be careful. This
lake has lots of stumps and
snags.
In the Suwannee River
near the Georgia border to
the Gulf of Mexico, you can
catch plenty of quality-size
largemouth bass and the
smaller, but feisty, Suiwan-
nee bass. Use plastic
worms, lizards, and craw-
fish; jigs with orange skirts
.and pork rinds; and metal-
lic crankbaits. Live shiners
are good too, and small
bass, will hit a fly or a small
floater-diver along the
bank. During the fall when
shrimp migrate into in the
river, fishing can be out-
standing.
Everglades Water Con-
tservation Areas .two and
three in Soutth Florida. Best
fishing is in the spring;
April is the peak month.
Work canal edges' with
plastic worms, soft jerk-.


baits, and minnow imita-
tions or try flipping the
vegetation. During high
water, try the open slough
areas. Only one bass of the
five-bass daily bag limit
may be 14 inches or longer.
Crescent Lake East of
Crescent City. Fall and ear-
ly winter fishing is best
near deep-water structures.
Use plastic worms, spinner
baits and crankbaits or live
golden shiners.
Tenoroc Fish Manage-
ment Area Lakes near
Lakeland. Fish here from
mid-November through
March. Probe deeper wa-
'ters with chrome-colored
rattling lures and char-
treuse (firetiger-color) div-
ing crankbaits, or use plas-
tic worms. During spring,
flipping worms or soft
plastic baits in thick brush
work well. Harvest regula-
tions vary among the lakes;
call the Tenoroc Ieadquar-
ters at 863-499-2422 for
more information or to
make reservations. These
lakes are only open to the
public four days a week.
All anglers must check in
and out at the Tenoroc
Headquarters and pay $3
for a daily permit.
Mosaic Fish Management
Area near Ft. Meade. Use
top-water baits around
dawn and dusk or fish with
white or chartreuse spinner,
baits, plastic worms and
chrome or firetiger (char-
treuse) colored crankbaits.
Fish along shoreline brush
and vegetation in the
spring, and submersed is-
lands or sandbars off
points, during warmer
months. Harvest regula-
tions vary among the lakes,.
and the area is only open to
public fishing Friday
through Monday. Anglers
can't make reservations for
the first-come, first-served
permits. Call 863-499-2421
ext. 104, for more informa-
tion about fishing at Mosa-
ic Fish Management Area.
You can fish legally in
fresh water in Florida with-
out a license April 1 and 2,.

Alligators:


Monarchs of the


Okefenokee


Submitted by: Okefenokee
National Wildlife Refuge

People come from all
parts of the world to see
the beauty of the Okefeno-
kee, from its cypress forests
and lily-filled prairies, to
its upland pine forests. But
what really draws them to
the place known as the
"Land of The Trembling
Earth" are the monarchs of
the swamp, the American
alligator.
As evident by the signs
along nearby highways,
the American alligator is
the unofficial "mascot" of
the Okefenokee Swamp.
An animal of ancient de-
sign, in the water it has a
strong, slightly menacing
appearance that makes it
look dangerous, especially
to people who are not fa-
miliar with them.
When I first paddled in
the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge, I constant-
ly scanned the dark, tan-
nin-stained waters, search-
ing for the tell-tale signs
that would indicate the
presence of this powerful
creature the distinctive
shape of eyes and noses
lurking just at the surface
of the water. The primal
fear of being preyed on'by
creatures larger and more
ferocious than ourselves
seems deeply imbedded in
the human psyche. Some of
this can be attributed to
watching one too many
"nature documentaries,"-
which always show croco-
diles leaping in the air to
grab an unsuspecting
African wildebeest. Holly-
wood. hasn't helped either,
with its series of films de-
picting giant, boat-eating
alligators on the loose; it's a
wonder anybody still ven-
tures out in a canoe.
As I have learned over

time, alligators may be cu-
rious, they may even be
frightened, but they are
generally not aggressive. It
seems to me that they
know to fear humans more
than humans should fear
them. In fact, there has not
been a single case of any-
body being attacked, let
alone being killed by an al-
ligator in the Okefenokee
since it became a refuge in
1936.
The word "alligator" is
derived from the Spanish
word El Legarto, which
means "the lizard." A visi-
tor's first alligator sighting
is usually a memorable
event, and sometimes a de-
ceptive one as well. On
warm, sunny days, alliga-
tors tend to congregate be-
hind our visitor center,
where they haul them-
selves on shore to bask in
the sun and snooze the af-
ternoon away in relative
peace. This is the sight that
greets many thousands of
visitors every year at the
refuge, leading many to
comment that alligators
seem to be lazy reptiles-
that enjoy an easy life. This
is simply not the case.
In fact, the life of an alli-
gator is anything but easy.
Many alligators do not
make it out of their eggs,
and most do not make it to
adulthood. Research indi-
cates that over 65% of alli-
gator eggs in the Okefeno-
kee are eaten by raccoons
and other mammals, even
though a mother alligator
often guards her nest. If a
baby alligator successfully
hatches, then it has to
avoid being eaten by
herons and other preda-
tors. Once an alligator be-
comes an adult, then it may
take its place as a monarch
of the swamp.
While alligators have al-
ways been protected inside
the refuge, outside is a dif-
ferent story.' Due to over-
harvesting and poaching,
by the 1960's the popula-
tion of alligators in the
United States dropped so
low that they were listed as
endangered by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
Today the alligator saga is
a story of success, recover-
ing in numbers to over ten
thousand within the refuge
.and over one million in the.
southeastern United States.
Today, I enjoy watching
alligators as they sun them-
selves. on the canal bank or
on peat blow-ups in the
swamp. I look for baby alli-
gators on the move in the
borrow ditches along
Swamp Island Drive or
swimming near the boat
ramps, and I treasure the
moment. To quote Baba Di-
uom, a Senagalese poet, "In
the end, we conserve only
what we love. We will love
only what we understand."
By observing and learning
about these animals, I have
learned not to fear but to
respect these fascinatifig
creatures, these monarchs
of the Okefenokee Swamp.

National Kidney Month


March, National Kidney
Month, is a time to raise
awareness about the risks
of kidney disease and the
importance of high quality
treatment for dialysis pa-
tients. Chronic kidney dis-
ease (CKD) affects over 20
million Americans across
America. Efid Stage Renal
Disease the most ad-
vanced stage of CKD af-
fects over 400,000 Ameri-
cans, and 19,000 people in
Florida alone.
"Kidney disease pro-
foundly affects a large
number of Floridians," said
Stephanie Hutchinson, Ex-
ecutive Director of the Na-
tional Kidney Foundation
of Florida. "National Kid-
ney Month is an important
time for us to raise aware-
ness on preventing kidney
disease, especially ,s the,.
two le4d.ing, c.i ae of. - high blood pressure and
diabetes increase."
Healthy kidneys filter


and eliminate impurities
from the body, balance the
body's fluids, release hor-
mones that regulate .blood
pressure, and control the
production of red blood
cells. Chronic kidney dis-
ease can lead to heart dis-
ease, high blood pressure
and anemia and if left un-
treated, can lead to full kid-
ney failure (ESRD). ESRD
is irreversible, and unless
ESRD patients get a kidney
transplant, they require
four-hour dialysis treat-
ments, three times a week
for the rest of their lives.
Among the leading caus-
es of kidney disease are
high blood pressure and di-
abetes, two conditions that
can be easily treated. In
Florida, 32 percent of dialy-
sis patients diagnosed with
CKD have the disease as. a
resulta, p ,_rolled h~gh,.
blood pressure; 38 percent
have the disease as a result
of complications stemming


from poorly managed dia-
betes.
"Detecting chronic kid-
ney disease (CKD) at an
early stage is critical for ef-
fective treatment," said
Hutchinson.
The mission of the Na-
tional Kidney Foundation
of Florida is to prevent kid-
ney and urinary tract .dis-
eases, improve the health
and well-being of individu-
als and families affected by
these diseases, and increase
the availability of all organs
for transplantation. The
National Kidney Founda-
tion of Florida is a vital re-
source for kidney patients
and their families helping
them learn how to cope
with the physical and psy-
chological aspects of the
disease and providing
them with hope for the fu-
* ture ; n. .. .. ; e

the Florida Folk Festival,
as well as her assistant,
Larry Hoover. I know
Elaine and Larry enjoyed
meeting with old friends
and making some new
ones as well.
I always enjoy sharing
Y.isits with neighbors and
friends and, Friday morn-
ing was no exception. I
took Friday, March 10, off
to attend to some medical
and dental needs but, be-
fore, I left on my morning
rounds, I traveled down
to the Country Cafe and
had breakfast. I love the
cafe, and I always run into
someone with whom I can
talk. Friday I sat near Bob-
by Ray and Sybil Sistrunk
and thoroughly enjoyed
talking with them. If I live
to retirement and am able,
I hope I can spend more
.mornings visiting with
friends, right here "way
.down upon the Suwannee
River."
Speaking of "way down
upon the Suwaniee Riv-
er," don't forget the annu-
al Antique Tractor and
Engine Show at the
Stephen Foster, the week-
end of March 31. You will
enjoy a broad range of an-
tique .farm' machinery
and, see it in "action" at
this outstanding event.
The Erixton family of
White Springs always
does an outstanding job of
helping with this annual
event, and, too, we appre-
ciate all the work done by
the park staff at 'Stephen
Foster and, Martha Nel-
son, who is in charge of
helping coordinate this
event.
Lunatics, dog ticks, and
politics. I don't know
about the first two, but
the latter, is beginning, to
spark some interest here
in our county and in the
state of Florida as well.

county, in District 4, we
have our School Board
Seat, as well as our Coun-
ty Commission Seat, up
for grabs during this elec-
tion cycle, as well as the
.Governor's race, the Unit-
ed State Senate race, and,
some others in our area.
We will all be hearing
more about various and
sundry political races,
and, by mid summer, we
will hear more and more
stay tuned.
Among those perform-
ing for the Wild Azalea
Festival this coming
weekend, Jeanie Fitchen,
Cocoa Beach, Florida.
Jeanie is a longtime per-
former at the Florida Folk
Festival and former Flori-
da Folk Heritage Award
Winner. We look forward
to having Jeanie perform
for us. We also look for-
ward to seeing Jerry
Mincey, Winter Haven,
who will be performing
some of his outstanding
Florida songs for us. Each
time I think of the Azalea
Fest, I think about the late
"Bear" Marshall, and the
delicious grilled cabbage,
he would make each year.
I hope he has passed that
talent on to someone. It
was always delicious. I
also look forward to the
peach cobbler made by
the Claridy family, as well
as sweet potato pie. You
can tell what my mind
"runs -on" at these festi-
vals.
Jerry Lawrence and I
will be performing at 10
a.m. on Saturday morning
in front of the Nature and
Heritage Tourism Center.
The Little Miss Wild Aza-
lea Contest will be held at
2 p.m.
If you know where
some wild azaleas are or
might be, take the ladies
at the Nature and Her-
itage Tourism Center a
big bouquet on Saturday
morning. There are so
many people who come to
the event who have no
idea what they are. When
I was being "raised" on
the -Woodpecker Route,
we always called them
wild honeysuckles. I was
shaving before I knew
they were called wild aza-
leas. I remember the late
Jimmie Jacobs, longtime
educator at South Hamil-
ton. I always made a point
of picking her a big bou-
quet to take with her on
her spring break each
year. She always loved
them so. Leon and Jane
Cheshire have a beautiful
bush in their yard north of
White Springs near the
Five Mile Still.

Florida blueberry season A

is March through June


If you're eating plenty of
blueberries, you can bet your
body isn't singing the blues.
Those sweet, tangy little
berries are packed with an-
tioxidants to neutralize free
radicals unstable oxygen
molecules associated with
cancer, heart disease, and the
effects of aging.
"Blueberries are one of the
most healthful foods you can
eat," said Donna Miller, Vice
President of the Florida Blue-
berry Growers Association.
"Per cup, they are the highest
antioxidant fruit or vegetable
available. They are fat and
sodium free and are a good
source of fiber, potassium
and vitamins A and C."
Studies show that eating
blueberries can improve eye
health, lower cholesterol,
protect against urinary tract
infections, and reduce the
risk of certain cancers. In ad-
dition, researchers have
found that a diet rich in blue-
berries may help stop age-re-
lated memory loss. Blueber-
ries get their memory-en-
hancing punch from antho-
cyanins, reddish-blue pig-
ments; these powerful antiox-
idants are thought to increase
communication between ag-
ing brain cells.
The Florida blueberry sea-
son starts in mid to late
March and ends in June.
Most of the state's commer-
cial blueberry acreage can be
found in Hamilton, Suwan-
nee, Columbia, Alachua,
Marion, Lake, Polk, Hillsbor-

ough, Bay and Highland
counties. In 2004, Florida's
cash receipts for blueberries
totaled over $25 million.
There are two main types
of blueberries grown in Flori-
da southern highbush and
rabbiteye. Southern high-
bush blueberries are early
season blueberries, ripening,
on average, about four to six
weeks before rabbiteyes
grown in the same location.
Southern highbush blueber-
ries are not grown any place
else in the United States. In
the spring, the only fresh
blueberries are Florida blue-
berries, so they fetch high
prices and enjoy nationwide
demand.
Florida's southern high-
bush blueberries are shipped
fresh to supermarkets
around the country. Because
Florida's rabbiteye blueber-
ries ripen later, when there is
competition from other
states, their market is usually
limited to u-pick and local
sales. Rabbiteye cultivators
are well adapted from Ocala
north to the Georgia border
and west throughout the
Panhandle.
Florida's U-pick.blueberry
farms will soon be opening
their gates to the public.
Wear sunscreen and a hat,
dress comfortably, and bring
your own.container. Stay on
designated paths and try not
to step on the root mounds,
which could injure the
plants. Choose plump, even-
ly blue berries, and be gentle


when you pick. Try to get
your picked blueberries out
of sun as soon as possible
and into a cool, shady place.
"When you're selecting
blueberries, make sure they
have their natural white,
powdery bloom," Miller
said. "It's a natural food
starch and protects the berry.
Some people think it's a
spray and try to wash it off,
but it's a good thing and
helps the blueberry stay
fresher longer."
Blueberries don't ripen
once they've been harvested,
so make sure the berries you
choose are deep blue-gray
without any hint of red.
Shake the container gently to
check that the berries move
freely;. if they don't, they
might be mushy or moldy.
"Make sure the berries are
dry," Miller said, "and that
they look so good you can
hardly wait to have one. You
can really tell if the berries
have aged. They shouldn't be
wrinkled or shriveled."
Ripe blueberries should be
stored in a covered container
in the refrigerator, where
they will keep for up to a
week. Before refrigerating,
sort through the berries and
remove any that are moldy
or damaged. Berries should-
n't be washed until just be-
fore use.

Class Josh R. Briscoe


Navy Petty Officer 3rd
Class Josh R. Briscoe and his
fellow shipmates made a
five-day port visit to Bris-
bane, Australia, while as-
signed to the aircraft carrier
USS Ronald Reagan, home-
ported in San Diego, Calif.
In early January, USS
Ronald Reagan began its
maiden western Pacific de-
ployment in support of the
Global War on -Terrorism
and maritime security opera-
tions (MSO). The port visit
was an opportunity for
Sailors to participate in com-
munity service projects while
also visiting tourist attrac-
tions and experiencing the


Australian culture.
During the visit, Sailors
volunteered at the local chil-
dren's and women's hospi-
tals, helped restore an Aus-
tralian World War II frigate
at the Queensland Maritime
Museum and cleaned a train-
ing facility for emergency
medical technicians.
MSO sets the conditions
for security and stability in
the maritime environment,
and supports the counter-ter-
rorism and security efforts of
regional nations. MSO denies

Nobles Greenhouse began in the 1970s
as a result of Carter and Stewart Nobles'
passion for African violets and flowering
plants. Chris and Kim Carter purchased
the nursery in 1986. Chris began garden-
ing with his grandfather when he was
three years old, so he, too, had.a passion
for plants and gardening.
Through the years the nursery has
grown with the addition of new and un-
usual varieties of plants, trees and
shrubs. In the 1990s, a gift shop was
added, which has grown to include an
amazing selection of outdoor d6cor prod-
ucts. As the new millennium approached,
Chris and Kim had the desire to create a
whole new shopping experience for their New arrival of colorful pottery
customers.
They knew they needed a total renova-
tion of the garden center, and they want-
ed every aspect of the design to be done
with their customers' convenience and
enjoyment in mind. In spring of 2005
they introduced customers to a whole
new facility. One shining example of
their goal to create a unique shopping
experience is the new high tech green-
house. Three walls of the building and a
roof vent automatically roll up and down
as temperatures warm up or cool off,
thus allowing their customers to shop for
beautiful plants in total comfort.
"We want to keep improving and offer- Nobles picks only the best plants for you
ing our customers new and exciting
plants and products, so for this spring we've created a new pottery shopping area with
pottery from all over the world," Kim explained. "Our customers have a desire to do
more container garden-
ing, so we've brought to-
gether an amazing selec-
tion of pots which will
allow our customers' to
find the perfect color and
styl e for their home."

is so much niore than

tomers with all their gar-

Cutting Down on Caffeine?

Know Hidden Sources


Many people are under the impression that
caffeine is a horrible monster that should be
avoided at all costs. In actuality, when
consumed in moderation, caffeine can actually
offer a number of benefits. It can keep you
alert and awake when making a long car trip, it
has been shown to reduce headache and
migraine pain, and it may alleviate asthma and
allergy symptoms. What gives caffeine a bad
rap are the negative side effects from overuse.
This includes a fast heart rate which is
dangerous for anyone with a heart condition,
diuresis (excessive urination that results in
dehydration), restlessness and trouble
sleeping, anxiety and panic attacks. As a
result, many doctors advise their patients to
limit caffeine consumption. In addition,
pregnant women are usually told to avoid
caffeine in most instances because of its
potentially negative affect on a fetus.
If you need to watch caffeine intake, you
should become educated on the foods and
products that contain it. While some are
obvious, others are lesser-known and
surprising.
Brewed coffee contains more caffeine (50 to
200 mg depending upon cup size) and is likely
widely known among consumers (drip pots
produce-coffee with a higher caffeine content
than percolator pots). However, the popular
headache pill Excedrin contains 130 mg of
caffeine almost the same amount as a cup of
joe.
For those who want a refreshing caffeine-
free soft drink, steering clear of cola products
is a no-brainer. But don't reach for just any
other variety. Sunkist orange soda, .for'
example, has 40 mg per 12-ounce serving and
Mountain Dew* has 55 mg (in comparison,
Pepsi only has 37 mg). Consider root beer or
a lemon-lime variety like Sprite or 7-Up,
neither of which contains caffeine.
Chocoholics can sleep soundly knowing that
most chocolate products are low in caffeine a

1-oz. piece of milk chocolate only has around 5
mg. But when chocolate is mixed with coffee in
yogurt or ice cream, caffeine levels can be
considerably elevated. Case in point: Ben &
Jerry's Coffee Fudge Frozen Yogurt has 85 mg.
Tea is another questionable area of concern.
Brewed teas contain about half the amount of
caffeine as a cup of coffee. Iced tea measures
in at the highest level with 70 mg per 12-ounce
serving.
Also be careful of sports drinks and vitamin
waters. Some are caffeine-free, but others have
caffeine hidden within.
Some may find it surprising that the USDA
does not mandate companies to ';4 caffeine
levels on their product labeling. Tiierefure, if the
label is unclear, doing some research on the
Internet or calling the company may be in order.
When limiting caffeine consumption after
.prior heavy use (such as drinking multiple-cups
of coffee a day), do so gradually. Caffeine can
be an addictive substance, and withdrawal
symptoms such as irritability, headaches and
nausea may result when caffeine consumption
is stopped too quickly.

Mrs. Coffins, Spirituafist
Heatr, Rea4?r, Advisor
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 locale, 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 any 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.
