that the children there can receive an edu-
cation in a safe, clean building.
Does that seem like a big goal for a pe-

sing her impressive voice makes a
huge impact on people no matter

Greta entertained the guests at the ."

government created this
certification program to
help small businesses in
these zones to grow
through the use of govern-
ment contracting. Hamil-

work to live animals, the
government buys it all.

are not using alcohol, but it
is a decision many face,"
said Grace McDonald,
Hamilton County Alcohol
and Other Drug Prevention
Coalition Project Director.
"Ten percent of nine- to 10-
year-olds say that they al-
ready have started drink-
ing alcohol. Far too many
children are beginning to
drink at a dangerously ear-
ly age. This Reach Out
Now Teach-In is an impor-
tant step in giving our kids
a clear and consistent mes-
sage at home and at school
that underage drinking is
dangerous, illegal, and un-
acceptable."
According to the Florida
Youth Substance Abuse
Survey, Hamilton County
Report of 2004, the average
age of the first use of alco-
hol was 12.6. The percent-
age of eighth grade youth
that reported alcohol use in
the past 30 days was 18.6.


Among the adult popula-
tion Hamilton County
records report 3.61/1000
adults were arrested for
DUI. That was higher the
state average of 3.21/1,000
(FDLE, 2003). Therefore,
we need to start educating
our youth at a very young
age about the dangers of
underage drinking.
Members of the Coalition
will lead the local Teach-Ins.
Community leaders who
will visit classes and teach a
lesson on the dangers of un-
derage alcohol use include:
Martha Butler (School
Board Chair), Greg Godwin
(Clerk of Circuit Court),
Mike Adams (County Com-
missioner), .Pastor Billy Si-
mon (School Board Mem-
ber), Mona Payne (R.N.,
Hamilton County Public
Heath Department), Angie
Tomlinson (R.N., Hamilton

partment), Pastor Jerry
Thomason (President of
Ministerial Alliance and


Ihe H-amilton Lounty .Alcohol and Uther L)rug Pre-
Sention Coalition will host a community outreach pro-
gram for youth at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, at the
Hamilton County High School (HCHS) auditorium.
The Citadel Gospel Choir from the military college in
South Carolina will make a special guest appearance at
the event. Approximately 30 cadets sing in the choir,
which performs at many community events.

grade class in America.

"What parents may not
realize," said SAMHSA
Administrator Charles G.
Curie, "is that children say
that their parents' disap-
proval of underage drink-
ing is the key reason they
have chosen not to drink."
SAMHSA reports that chil-


dren and teens are less like-
ly to abuse alcohol if their
parents are involved in
their children's lives, make
and enforce clear rules, and
are positive role models.

Vanessa Fultz
Special to the Jasper Nezos

Parents will soon have
the option to boost their
children's academic ability
through supplemental ed-
ucation.
Tom and Dana Lashley
of Mayo are in the process
of opening a Sylvan Learn-
ing Center (SLC) in Live
Oak. The couple have
bought the franchise rights
to a sizable geographical
area and the center will
serve Hamilton, Suwan-
nee, Lafayette, Columbia,
Madison, Taylor, Union
and Baker Counties. Cur-
rently, the closest centers
are in Gainesville and Val-
dosta, Ga.
Construction on the site.
began in November 2005
and is scheduled to be
complete mid April. The
Live Oak SLC, located on
US 129 N behind Lafayette
State Bank, will begin
serving students around
April 24. However, the call
center is already up and
running.
The Lashleys, who have
27 years of experience in
the education field be-
tween them, said they
were sold on the concept
behind SLC because of its
individualized education-
al plan for each student.
"We're seeing more and
more kids with individu-
alized needs," Tom Lash-
ley, who will serve as the
center's director, said.
"Many kids need special
assistance and SLC can tai-
lor a specialized program
for. each' child," Dana
Lashley, who will serve as
the center's education di-
rector, said.
The Lashleys agree that
public school education
provides a great educa-
tional overview to stu-
dents, but that often


teacher's hands are tied
because they can't always
zero in on each child.
"We serve as a helpmate
for the schools and are not
a competitive service,"
Dana Lashley said.
She said the center
works in conjunction with
teachers and schools and
often receives referrals
from educators.
At SLC all teachers are
certified, and enforced is a
three to one student-
teacher ratio.
Dana Lashley said when
students come in she will
assess them based on a
double area to determine
strengths and weaknesses
and locate underlying
problems.
"This tells us the why
and the how," she said. "If
a child is having difficul-
ties in algebra we may
find it is a reading prob-
lem. He/she may not be
comprehending the mater-
ial."
During the assessment
she will determine the
child's learning style, and
learning will be based on
the particular style.
"However, we will also
expose children to other
learning styles to strength-
en their weaknesses," she
said.
Dana Lashley said she.
will develop an individu-
alized educational plan for
each child and the parent
will help develop the plan.
Parents will be asked what
their goals are for their
,children. Plans will be
based on goals to help
.children catch up, keep up
or get ahead.
Starting out the center
will have-a. capacity to;
serve 24 plus students per
learning hour, with room"
to expand. Students, will
receive service ia one to
two hour intervals.

Four tips for financial

responsibility for teens


The teenage years are filled
with fun and responsibility.
It's about first dates, the first
time behind the wheel and
first jobs. However, all of
these "firsts" are accompa-
nied by one thing, money.
That's why it is important for
teens to learn how to save
money, use credit wisely,
and yes, pay dues to Uncle
Sam.
Mike Sullivan, director of
education for Take Charge
America, a non-profit credit
counseling company, says
parents should not only
teach their children how to
pay'taxes, but explain why it
is necessary.


"Paying taxes is a part of
proper money management.
It is a life skill carried well
into adulthood," said Sulli-
van. "Teens need to know
that taxes pay for govern-
ment services, including
highways, parks and law en-
forcement"
If your teen receives W-2's,
1099's or other statements of
income, he or she might have
to file, but even if filing isn't
required, it is usually a good
idea to file if wages have
been withheld. A refund
may be due.
"It's important for
teenagers to become ac-
quainted with taxes while

their income, is low because
as income increases, the tax
laws become increasingly
complicated," said Sullivan.
"Staying out of debt is a year-
round effort. It includes be-
ing responsible for every as-
pect for your finances, in-
cluding taxes, no matter how
minor or complicated they
appear."
Sullivan says.there are four
things working teens need to
know about income taxes:
After landing a job, you
need to fill out a W-4 form
with your employer. At the
beginning of the following
year, you will receive a W-2
form from each job held. In
addition, taxes are taken out
of each paycheck throughout
the year.
Many teens find jobs wait-
ing tables or delivering food.
These jobs are often low pay-
ing because the majority of
income will come from tips.
If you make more than $20 a
month, you must tell your
boss so he/she can withhold
the appropriate taxes from
your regular wages. ,
Federal taxes are taken out
of pay checks throughout the
year. If you file a tax return, a
portion, if not all, of the fed-
eral income tax money can be
returned. Teaching your teen
how to use tax refunds wise-
ly is another money manage-
ment skill needed later in life.
If you have too little money
taken out of your check
throughout the year, you'll
owe the government money
when it is time to file your
taxes. On the other hand, if
too much money is withheld,
you'll get a larger refund.
While this sort of "forced sav-
ing" may seem a good idea,
that's money you could have
made better use of through-
out the year, such as saving in
an in [ter est-bearing account..
Financial experts say you
should adjust your withhold-
ing so your tax payments
match your tax liability.


Cancer survivors


invited to participate


in Relay For Life


The American Cancer
Society is extending an in-
vitation to all cancer sur-
vivors and their families
to participate in Relay For
Life. This unique commu-
nity event allows individ-
uals from all walks of life
to join in the fight against
cancer. Last year, more
than three million Ameri-
cans participated in Relay
For Life and more than
500,000 cancer survivors
walked the opening laps.
"This event is about cel-
ebrating life and honoring
all cancer survivors and
their families who've sup-
ported them through their
illness," said Sue Allen,
co-chair of the Relay For
Life of Hamilton County.
At the event, cancer sur-
vivors will kick off the Re-
lay by walking the Sur-
vivors' Victory Lap
around the track and then
the survivor and a guest
are invited to attend a din-
ner reception in the cafete-
ria at Central Hamilton El-
ementary. Jean Eatmon, a
nine year cancer survivor
from Jasper, has attended
the survivor celebration in
Hamilton County for the
last two years.
"The survivor lap is re-
ally uplifting, being
cheered on by all the
teams and attendees. It's
nice to know that the com-
munity supports the battle
we've all fought and is do-
ing something so that oth-
ers don't have to fight the
same one. I hope we'll
have even more survivors
attend this year," says Eat-
mon.
After dark, a Luminaria
Ceremony is held in mem-
ory of thosd"6Who've lbst
their battle with cancer
and in honor of those


who've survived.
Relay For Life began as
one man's battle against
cancer and a journey to
raise funds to support the
American Cancer Society.
In May 1985, Dr. Gordy
Klatt walked, jogged, and
ran for 24 hours around a
track in Tacoma, Wash.
His run alone raised
$27,000. All the 'money
raised goes to our mission


of saving lives through re-
search, advocacy, patient
services and education
The American Cancer
Society is still recruiting
teams to participate in this
event. For more informa-
tion or if you are interest-
ed in volunteering, or to
request a Luminaria on
behalf of a loved one, call
Maureen Germain at 888-
295-6787 extension 117.

Preparing for Easter
who took your place?


You've likely heard the fol-
lowing story. Think about it
in terms of your personal
preparation for Easter just a
few weeks away:
One day, a man went to
visit a church. He got there
early, parked his car, and got
out. Another car pulled up
near and the driver got out
and said, "I always park
there! You took my place!"
The visitor went inside for
Sunday school, found an
empty seat and sat down. A
young lady from the church
approached him and stated,
"That's my seat! You took
my place!" The visitor was
somewhat distressed by this
rude welcome, but said noth-
ing.
After Sunday school, the
visitor went into the sanctu-
ary and sat down. Another
member walked up to him
and said, "That's where I al-
ways sit! You took my


place!" The visitor was even
more troubled by this treat-
ment, but still he said noth-
ing.
Later, as the congregation
was praying for Christ to
dwell among them, the visi-
tor stood up and his appear-
ance began to change. Horri-
ble scars became visible on
his hands and his sandaled
feet.
Someone from the congre-
gation noticed him and
called out, "What happened
to you?"
The visitor replied, as' his
hat became a crown of thorns
and a tear fell from his eye, "I
took your place."
Easter Sunday will soon be
upon us. Let the words of
this story speak to you dur-
ing the final weeks of Lent as
you prepare for the great cel-
ebration of Easter.
Worship this week in the
church of your choice.

port is greatly appreciated.

Hamilton County News


Submitted by Helen Udell

Hamilton Stompers
Special Olympics Hamil-
ton County traveled to Or-
lando for state basketball
competition on March 10
and March 11. The Hamil-
ton Stompers defeated the
Orange County West Bail-
ers in overtime for the Mas-
ters Division One gold
medal, making them state
champions in that division
four years in a row. Team
members Antony Paul,
Travis Jackson, Alan Pierce
and Coach Mike Cohen
were interviewed by Sun-
shine Network Television.
Other team members are
Jeremiah Jones, Cedric
Claridy, Adevius Lanier,
Dan Johnson, Derrick Her-
riot and Stevie Simmons.
Hamilton Fighters
The Hamilton Fighters
coached by Anith Dye got
gold medal fever also. This
year the team defeated the
Pinellas County Patriots for
the first place gold medal
in the Senior Division Two,
State Champs. Team mem-
bers who showed their tal-
ent, joy, team unity, and de-
termination to win are
Randy Davis, Cedric John-
son, Albert Pierce,
Desmond Kiser, Patrick
Pender, and Moses Morris.
The team is already making
plans to win next year.
Great job and keep up the
spirit.
Hamilton Shakers
The Hamilton Shakers
started victoriously in Pen-
sacola, at Eglin A.F.B. in
February with a win over
the Walton Warriors. While
at Eglin Air Force Base, the
Hamilton team was escort-
ed to games, meals, and
ceremonies by the 33AMXS
Deploy and Fight Division.
It was very helpful to the
athletes, coaches and chap-


erones from Hamilton.
Thanks to the 33AMXS Di-
vision for volunteering and
being cheerleaders for
Hamilton during the com-
petition. When the
33AMXS unit is not volun-
teering for Special
Olympics they are pa-
trolling the air space high
above the clouds around
the President's plane, the
Air Force One. They also
patrol for other dignitaries
while in the air. Special
Olympics Hamilton Coun-
ty thanks the team for their
*help and is looking forward
to next year.
After winning first place
in Pensacola, the Hamilton
Shakers advanced to State
competition in Orlando on
March 10 and March 11.
This was the first year a ju-
nior team from Hamilton
County made it to state
competition. 'They are a
very young team, but with
their determination and
with motivation from
Coach Peter Adams, they
appear to have been play-
ing together for years.
The Hamilton Shakers
played the Pasco Patriots in
the best two out of three
games. This year the team
received a silver medal for
their accomplishment.
Team members enjoying
the success are Laquita
Clay, Jesse Tompkins, Brit-
tany Davis, Lyntranell Har-
ris, Branquanya Griffin, Za-
farys Kennedy, Jasmine
King, and .team coach Peter
Adams. Great job, keep up
the good work. ."

Families will have more
a. opportunities to hunt to-
gether on public lands un-
a. der a rule passed by the
a. Florida Fish and Wildlife
a. Conservation Commission
a. (FWC).
Fla. Four additional wildlife
la. management areas have
added "family hunts" to
their list of hunting oppor-
tunities for next season.
Fla. Those areas are Andrews
and Devil's Hammock,
both in Levy County, in
3a. the North Central Region;
Dinner Island Ranch, in
Hendry County, in the
a. South Region; and
Lafayette Creek, a new
area in Walton County, in
Fla. the Northwest Region.
The family hunt format
is a weekend hunt, intend-


Fla.
Fla.


ed to provide mentoring
adults and youths with ex-
clusive opportunities to
hunt together on public
lands. One adult and up to
two youths can take part in
these opportunities by ob-
taining a no-cost family
quota hunt permit.
To participate, youths
must be between the ages
of 8 and 15, and adults
must be over 18 years old.
Youths must hunt under
the supervision of the
adult, and adults may only
hunt in the presence of at
least one youth.
There will be a total of
five wildlife management
areas offering family hunts'
next season, including
Matanzas, in St. Johns
County, in the Northeast


Region, which ran the suc-
cessful pilot program last
year.
"The Commission recog-
nizes the importance of
passing down the hunting
tradition," quota hunt co-
ordinator Eddie White
said. "We are making a
concerted effort to expand
and maximize these op-
portunities across the
state."
To apply for family
.hunts,, interested parties
must submit applications
June 20 through July 7 at
any license agent, county
tax collector's office, or on-
line at MyFWC.com/li-
cense. Family quota hunt
permit worksheets will be
available in early June at
MyFWC.com / hunting.


Florida Redfish OK, but still need care


FWC approves rules to clarify

total length fish measurement


The Florida Fish' and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) re-
cently approved a series
.of rules to clarify and
standardize how anglers
should measure the total
length of various saltwa-
ter finfish.
The new rules specify
that the "total length" of
saltwater fish, such as red
drum, spotted sea trout
and snook, should be
measured by determining
the straight line distance
.from the most forward
point of the head with the


mouth closed, to the far-
thest tip of the tail with
the tail compressed or
squeezed together, while
*the fish is lying on its
side.
However, there is no
change to the way the
"fork length" of saltwater
fish, such as Spanish
mackerel, pompano, and
cobia, should, be mea-
sured. Fork length mea-
surements are considered
to be easily understood
by fishermen and do not
need further clarification.
Another new rule


changes measurement for
gray triggerfish from total
length to fork length to be
consistent with the way
this species is measured
in federal waters.
The goal of these rules
is to provide a standard
measurement procedure
for the total length of salt-
water fish that is under-
stood by resident and vis-
iting anglers and that
may be uniformly en-
forced by officers in the
field.
These rules take effect
July 1, 2006.


Redfish stocks in Florida
are healthy, but increasing
fishing pressure could put
a damper on continued
abundance of this impor-
tant sport fish species, ac-
cording to Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. (FWC) biolo-
gists.
FWC's Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute recently
completed a stock assess-
ment for redfish (also
called red drum, channel
bass and red bass). The as-.
sessment includes data
collected through 2003 and
indicates redfish stocks are
meeting the Commission's
management goal.
Redfish stocks have been
recovering in Florida since
the late 1980s when offi-
cials launched substantial


.increase in the number of
Florida anglers fishing for
redfish has tempered re-
cent gains by the stock.
FWC biologists suggest
that, if fishing pressure
continues to rise, as ex-
pected, redfish may fall
short of management
goals by the next stock as-
sessment, scheduled for
2008.
Redfish stocks were
overfished and in danger
of collapse in 1986. This
resulted in three tempo-
rary closures of the fishery
and subsequent imple-
mentation of a manage-
ment plan. As redfish
stocks improved, a year-
round limited sport season
reopened in 1996.
The fishery has made
significant progress and is


much so that anglers in
some parts of Florida have
called for more liberal red-
fish regulations, including
an increase in the daily
bag limit.
The FWC recently con-
vened a stakeholder work-
group meeting to gather
input on the future of the
redfish fishery. After re-
viewing the latest data,
members were inclined to
suggest' a cautionary,
proactive management ap-
proach. The FWC will
schedule additional work-
group meetings to help de-
termine an appropriate
redfish management strat-
egy.

ment is available at

THE BANK'S

PERSPECTIVE -., *


By Jonathan Banks


Hello, welcome back to
the Banks Perspective. To-
day, I'm going to talk about
something very important;
something that has obvi-
ously not been discussed.
Many of you may know
there have been two car ac-
cidents in front of or near
the new high school, since
the beginning of the school
year. The 'traffic jams are
also a situation that needs
to be discussed. So, let's go
ahead and get down and
dirty with the details.
Traffic jams are aggravat-
ing, dangerous, and let's
not forget, time consuming.
I'm pretty sure many peo-
ple will agree with me
when I say no one wants to
wait ten minutes in a long
line of cars, trucks, and bus-
es. This is true, especially,
when some students are in
a rush for after-school
work, parents are late for
child pick-up, or even when
one has important errands
to run. This kind of rushing
causes car accidents as well
as frustrated drivers of all
ages.
The car accidents near the
school, in my opinion and


according to other people in
conversation, can be and
are preventable. These acci-
dents (so spoken) are
caused by thoughtlessness
and a habit of not paying at-
tention.
Most of the blame is shift-
ed towards the students,
but "who's to blame" is not
the issue. The main issue is
to find a resolution for the
problem and a matter of be-
ing careful and paying at-
tention. Paying attention
does not always mean stop-
ping at a stop sign or being
in the proper lane, but dri-
ving for yourself and every-
one else on the highway.
Some students are more
likely to be careless because
of the age factor and matu-
rity level; meaning the skid-
ding of the tires, fast dri-
ving, pulling out in front of
other vehicles and trying to
pass vehicles while traffic is
in the oncoming lane. Not
only do the students need
to be careful, but all drivers.
Anyone can be in danger
while driving (accidents are
not just for students).
I really can't understand
why someone would be so


. A free pre-school screen-
ing will be held in Hamil-
ton County for children
two years six months to
four years six months. Chil-
dren will be screened in the
areas of hearing/vision,
motor development,
speech/language develop-
ment, and concepts.
The first screening will be
on Monday, April 17, from
3 p.m. until 6 p.m. at South
Hamilton Elementary in


White Springs. The second
screening will be on Tues-
day, April 18, at North
Hamilton County from 1
p.m. until 6 p.m. The last
screening will be on
Wednesday, April 19, from
10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the
JRE Lee Complex in Jasper.
These screenings are, free
and are being conducted by
the Hamilton County
Schools and the Florida Di-
agnostic and Learning Re-


il :


sources (FDLRS/Gateway).
Each parent will have an
opportunity to discuss their
child's screening "results
with a member of the
FDLRS staff. Parents
should plan approximately
two hours for their child to
complete the screening.

Shelly Head, Hamilton
County ESE, 792-6515 or Jo
Ann Laseter, FDLRS / Gate-
way, 792-2877.


careless, knowing the risk
of danger in traffic. I say
this because there's a dif-
ference between having
fun and being irresponsi-
ble. You can cause a great
deal of confusion while do-
ing many things in or with
your car, so it's best to take
the safe way.
There are many ways to
prevent these terrible mis-
takes and problems. One
idea to stop traffic jams and
car accidents is to place a
traffic light in front of the
school. This suggestion
may or may not be expen-
sive, but is helpful, and is
worth keeping people and
students alive.
I'm pretty sure there are
some county or city council
members or school board
members that feel the same
way as I do. These are the
people we need to talk to.
Who knows, maybe these
issues can be discussed in
the school board meetings
and get approved. This idea
may not be as easy as it
sounds to get done, but the
work and difficulties that
we may face in the process
are worth saving lives. The
traffic light idea can be
helpful and safer, but your
suggestions as readers and
concerned citizens are
needed to make it happen.
Another idea would be to
have a school safety patrol.
It could be a small group of
students that are chosen for
the job. The students could

a scenic race through Madi-

Kelly Freedom Run on Sat-
urday, April 22. The race is
the early morning kick-off
for the Four Freedoms Fes-
tival. Events scheduled
April 18 through April 22,
highlight the small town
charm and southern hospi-
tality -found in this rural


north Florida community.
Races are open to begin-
ner and experienced run-
ners. The one mile Fun Run
is open to children and
youth up to age 16. It be-
gins at 8 a.m. and the entry
fee is $5. The more chal-
lenging 5K Run is open to
all ages and begins at 9 a.m.
The entry fee is $10. Orga-
nizers encourage runners to
pre-register for a free Four


Freedoms Festival t-shirt.
Registration will open 7:30
a.m. the day of the race.
The NFCC chapter of the
Florida Association of
Community Colleges is
sponsoring the races. The
event helps raise money for
a book scholarship pro-
gram for NFCC students.

get out of class early and ar-
rive early in the mornings
before the bell to get situat-
ed. This would give the stu-
dent's time to get set up,
and check in with their
sponsor. The safety patrol
could also help with other
safety issues before and af-
ter classes. This idea is just
not for the high school, but
can be used in other schools
throughout the county as
well.
The school could also
designate an employee or a
school resource officer to
supervise and direct traffic
before and after school. It
would be helpful to every-
one and most importantly,
to the bus drivers that the
school buses should go
first. The bus drivers are on
a tight schedule and need to
be on time. Having this sys-
tem will help the school
traffic and transportation
system run smoother and
safer in our schools. This
idea is maybe the easiest of
the suggestions that could
be initiated.
Well, I guess that's all for
this time. I hope you en-
joyed and will continue to
read my article on its
monthly basis..

or comments email the fol-
lowing jbanks_2011@ya-

thanks, have a nice week-
end and remember to al-
ways drive safely.


The Hamilton County
Farm Service Agency Of-
fice will be assisting the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services and USDA in im-
plementing a voluntary
program, the National Ani-
mal ID System (NAIS).
To track animals, animal
health officials must know
where they are born and
where they are moved.
Therefore, identifying loca-
tions that manage or hold
animals referred to as
premises is the -taitiri,
point of the NAIS. Each
premises will be identified
with a unique seven char-
acter identifier, or a


Premises Identification
Number (PIN).
Participation in this vol-
untary process is vital to
developing .a successful
program within the state.
Producers' and stakehold-
ers' participation in the de-
sign, development, and
testing of the system is crit-
ical to ensure practical so-
lutions. All producers that
own livestock of any class
can help by voluntarily
registering their premises.

Country Trash Collection


When we had a choice
of not taking the garbage
service in our rural area,
we purchased a garbage
compactor. With this, we
were able to compact the
garbage and then take a
pickup load to the landfill
only about once every six
months. We stored the
packages of waste in a


small shed set aside just
for that purpose so dogs
would not spread it all
over. All the wet, garbage
was composted for the
garden by rototilling it
into the soil between the
rows. The only problem
we had was that mice
liked to live in the shed
with the garbage. On


garbage hauling' day, the
cats had a real feast. Bill

Norris Notes

By Lillian Nocris


Hello there! I hope you
will be as glad to know I
am coming back, as I am to
be back. It has been a
rough week. It is too much
for me to have to stay in all
week. I am still somewhat
confined, and guess I will
be until next week when
going back for another x-
ray.
SFirst I want to thank all
of you who have said you
missed my column, and
have missed me. All of you
have been so good to care
*for me and pray for me,
you are the best! Again, as
I have often said, if you
-have to be sick or in trou-
ble, Jasper is the place to
be. The best people in
world are right here.
Thanks for everything you
did.
Now are you ready to
relay for the Relay for Life,
for the American Cancer
Society, arid for all who
have in some way been af-
fected by cancer. You are
needed and the time is
drawing near. You already
know how I feel about this,
now I and all concerned,
would like to hear from
you. The relay will start on
Friday, April 7, starting at
6 p.m. with a Survivor Lap.
If you are a survivor,
please contact Ida Daniels
by Wednesday, April 5, at
792-6523 and plan to come
to the track at the old high
school. There will be some-
one there to show you
where to go and what to,
do, and help in any way
needed.
The theme for the relay is
Hawaiian, dress, crazy
hats, conga line, jump rope,
PJ lap, doesn't that sound
like fun? We got to see
some of the committee
members tiy the. hula
hoop; you must see that.
Whether you are a partici-


pant or a spectator, be
there.
Different activities in-
clude: spoon relay, limbo
contest, hula hoop contest,
pass the coconut and ball
toss. Entertainment will be
provided by Dance Works
Studio, Trey Norris and
others to be announced
(hopefully, we will have
them listed by next week).
The Luminaria ceremony
will begin at dark; this will
be the lighting of candles in
honor/memory of those
who have survived cancer
or have lost their fight for a
cure of the disease. Surely
you know of some reason
to be at this ceremony,
honor a loved one, family
member or friend. Come
and celebrate the lives of
our loved ones with us.
Tommy Hamm II com-
pleted 12 weeks of basic
training in the United
States Army at Fort Ben-
ning, Ga. Tommy's family
joined him on Thursday,
March 23, for his "turning
Blue" ceremony. Tommy
received awards for expert
shooting and physical
training. Out of 199 gradu-
ates, Tommy was the only
one to receive both awards.
He also graduated near the
top of his class.
On Friday, March 24, the
graduation ceremony took
place. Attending the grad-
uation were Tommy's
grandparents, Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Hamm; his
mother, Cindy Hamm; his
father, Tommy Hamm;
stepmother, Nan Hamm;
sister, Lesley Hamm, and
stepsister, Emily Carater.
After graduation and lunch
with his family, Tommy
departed for Ft. Drum,
N.Y. He will be serving in
the 10th Mou.rntain Divi-
sion. Congratulations,
Tommy, our thoughts and


The Hamilton County Council on Aging expressed their appreciation of Ada Dean Curry, who has been the Title
3 Coordinator and Assistant Executive Director for over 28 years. She has seen trends come and go but her un-
wavering dedication has not changed. Curry started at the agency as a homemaker and throughout the years her
reliability has enabled her to be promoted to Assistant Executive Director. Without any regard for self, she has
.spent numerous years caring for the elderly, the staff, and the community with trust and dependability. "Devoted,"
"enduring," "strength," "perseverance," and "dear" are words used to describe Ada Curry. Picture I to r: Veronica

prayers go with you.
We had to miss the Tal-
ent Show put on by Central
Hamilton Elementary
School for the Cancer Soci-
ety Relay, at the Hamilton
County High School audi-
torium last Tuesday
evening. I understand it
was a great success and
raised a lot of money for
the Cancer Society. We will
hear more' about it when
the reports come in. Thank
all of you (we understand
the County School Office
Staff is running hard and
fast in competition); all of
this helps to raise funds
from Hamilton County.
There are others and we ex-
pect to hear big things from
you. Co-chair persons are
Sue Allen and Kim Fenne-
man, contact them for any
further information, and if
you. want to get in touch
with me I will send you to
whoever you need to con-
tact.
Don't forget .the VFW
barbecue next Thursday
night at. the VFW building.
Remember they -are trying
to "raise the roof" and we
want to help them. They


will be giving away a TV
set, asking for a possible
donation of $5. I do not re-
member the cost of the
meal, but if you have been
to their barbecue before
you will know it will be
worth the price. I hope to
see you there.

Thanks again for your
love and prayers, and all
you have done for me, it
has helped me and encour-
aged me to take care and
get well soon so I can be
"out and about" with you
again. I miss seeing every-
body.
I will see you soon, and
hope to hear from you.

according to findings published, in the
January issue of the journal Diabetes.
Having diabetes markedly raises the
risk of developing a host of other ail-
ments, from heart disease to stroke,
blindness and kidney failure. Many
arise after blood vessels suffer damage,
spurring the accumulation of fatty de-
posits in the arteries or the wild, blind-
ing growth of capillaries in the eye.
"We're interested in what happens in
the body at the molecular level to cause
these life-threatening problems," said
Mark S. Segal, Ph.D., an assistant pro-
fessor of nephrology, hypertension and
transplantation at UF's College of Med-
icine. "Our work is focused on under-
standing why diabetic patients -are at
increased.risk for these other diseases."
The problem is rooted' in the body's
response to vascular injury. The bone
marrow churns out cells crucial to re-
pairing the damaged lining of blood
vessels. But sometimes they fail to re-
,port for duty.,

ring in diabetic patients is these cells do
not carry out appropriate, repair, and
therefore these patients are at higher
risk for cardiovascular disease and oth-
er complications," Segal said.
The inability of the cells to repair the
peripheral vasculature, the large ves-
sels of the body, is similar to their in-
ability to repair the small vessels with-
in the eye, he added.
"In the vasculature it leads to athero-
sclerosis, and within the eye it leads to
diabetic retinopathy," he said. "So the
link is' we have one defect in these cells
that can lead to both of these prob-
lems."
UF researchers isolated these repair
cells from blood samples drawn from
patients with diabetes and chronic kid-
ney disease and studied them in the
laboratory. The cells were unable to
move about normally. But when nitric
oxide gas was added, Segal said, the
cells lost their rigidity, becoming sup-
pler, and their ability to move dramati-
cally improved.
In the 'body, nitric oxide occurs natu-
rally. It helps the repair cells move out
of the bone marrow 'where they are
made, and it opens blood vessels and
improves the uptake of oxygen. Patients
with diabetes, however, commonly
have low levels of nitric oxide.
"We went on, to show that actually
what's happening is nitric oxide is af-
fecting the skeleton, or scaffold of the
cell, and by adding nitric oxide we're
able to rearrange the scaffold," Segal
said. "When we rearrange the scaffold,
the cells are. able to migrate. The benefit
of this is that when cells have improved
movement they are able to repair the
endothelium (the lining of the blood,
vessels) better and perhaps prevent ath-
erosclerosi." ...
UF scientists suspect that in the cells
taken from diabetic patients, nitric oxide-
interacts with a protein that steers the
protein to the cell surface instead of in-
serting it into the cell as it -would in
healthy people. That causes the cell to
stiffen. *
The finding raises the possibility that
nitric oxide could someday be used to

Not too long ago, chiropractic
medicine was a relatively new
practice, with few people realizing
the positive impact chiropractic care
could have on their health. Over the
years, the healing effects of
chiropractic medicine have done a
great deal to lift the stigma that
chiropractic care is not equivalent to
traditional forms of medical
treatment, so much so that insurance
companies are now beginning to
offer plans that cover alternative and
complementary treatments, which
include trips to your chiropractor.

If such is the case with your
insurance provider, determining the
right time to go to a chiropractor can
be a tough call. The following
symptoms, courtesy of the Ontario
Chiropractic Association, are all
strong indicators that you might be
suffering from back problems that
could prove damaging in the near or
distant future and may require
chiropractic care:

Numbness in your legs. A tingling
and/or weakness in your legs,
especially after periods of inactivity
or when not doing something
strenuous, could be signs of
something bigger:

* Pain while coughing or sneezing. A
simple cough or a sneeze should not
normally be accompanied by back or
leg pain. A violent sneeze or cough.
is one thing, but persistent pain in
your back and legs whenever you
sneeze or cough is indicative of.
possible back problems.
* Difficulty standing up. Problems
getting up after sitting for any period
of time are not healthy. While
everyone experiences difficulty.

standing up from certain seats (i.e.,
deep and setback couches, extra soft
easy chairs, etc.), difficulty standing
up after sitting on a dinner table chair
or other chairs not too soft or low to
the ground could be a sign of back
problems.

Morning stiffness. If each morning
you awaken you feel stiff, and the
stiffness does not decrease until
you've moved around, an
examination is necessary.

* Consistent pain in other areas of the
body. Knee and foot problems as well
as pain in your hips, buttocks or
thighs could be indicative of back
pain. Oftentimes, an aching back will
cause you to subconsciously adjust
to ease the pain. This can cause you
to adjust the way you walk, which can
result in problems in other parts of
your body.

Unbalanced posture. If your
shoulder is higher on one side than
the other or you notice your head or
neck favoring one side, you could be
overcompensating for back pain.

Problems sleeping. Insomnia can be
caused by many things. However, if
you're otherwise healthy but still
experiencing pain and difficulty
getting comfortable, back pain is
likely the culprit and it might be time
to seek professional help.

Trouble turning or bending.
Problems with flexibility to each side
are often indicative of back pain.

Mrs. Coffins SpiUuaist
Heafler eader, A fvisor
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 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.
