impact fees in debate
between county city
Workshop to be held April 24
The Hamilton County /PCS Industrial Park, located at
the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 41 and CR 137, was designed
to attract new businesses to Hamilton County. Currently
there are four businesses located in the park and two more
want to relocate there.
G.A.P. Roofing has been planning to locate at the Indus-
trial Park for almost two years and has been working for
eight months to obtain the necessary permits for construc-
tion of a new facility. One reason the company chose this
area was that the County had told them there would be no
impact or connection fees for water and sewer services, ac-
cording to County Coordinator Bob Poor. But they were re-
cently notified by the. City of Jasper that they would have to
pay approximately $9,000 in sewer tap and impact fees.
Now they are considering moving to another state, Poor
In 2000, the County used more than one million dollars of
grant money frqm the U.S. Economic Development Admin-
istration to run water and sewer lines from Jasper to the In-
dustrial Park. When the project was completed, the County
deeded the water and sewer lines to the City of Jasper.

The Woman's Club of Jasper to celebrate 100 years
A grand celebration
By Verna Home, Woman's Club President
The Woman's Club of Jasper is planning a cel-

service to Hamilton County and surrounding
communities. A grand reception will be held at
the club house in October 2007. More on this at

In preparation for this celebration, we wanted

History of Jasper
From records of Past Club President
The year of 1905 saw the inception of a.move-.
ment in Jasper that was far-reaching in its influ-
ence and that was to contribute much to the en-
joyable and cultural life of the community.
Through all these years of fair weather and
foul, through prosperity and depression, an or-
ganization that has included the names of both
mothers and daughters, of our city through'

Several Hamilton County residents
were winners in the 2005 National
Corn Growers' Association's (NCGA)
Corn Yield Contest in Florida. The an-
nual contest is held nationally among
corn producers with the goal of pro-
ducing the highest yields. Growers
compete in a number of produc-
tion categories, including non-
irrigated, no-till/stri p- till
till / strip-till irrigated,
gated, ridge-till ir-
rigated and irri-
first in the Irri-
of the contest. He
harvested a yield
of 199.6 bushels per acre with Garst
brand 8288, a 116 general relative ma-
turity corn hybrid.
"We congratulate the growers for
their excellent seed selection and
management practices throughout the
growing season," said Scott Hart, corn
product manager for Garst Seed Com-
pany. "Our company remains dedicat-
ed to helping growers select hybrids .
with excellent genetics and traits, and
technologies that best fit their farm."
Michael Adams, of Jennings, placed
second in the Irrigated division of the
contest. He harvested a yield of 163.73
bushels per acre with Pioneer brand
Kevin Murphy, of Jennings, placed
first in the Ridge-till Irrigated divi-
sion. He harvested a yield of 162.24
bushels per acre.
Adams, of Jen-
first in the

Debra Adams of Jennings, placed
first in the state in the No Till/Strip
Till Irrigated Class. He harvested a
yield of 189.3595 bushels per acre
with the hybrid DEKALB DKC69-71.
"We're pleased to see the tremen-
dous results that growers achieved in
the NCGA contest this year with Pio-
neer products," said Bill Fleet, vice
president, North American Sales, Pio-
neer. "Corn growers are looking for
every opportunity to increase their re-
turn per acre. At Pioneer, we deliver
higher yielding products, trusted
technology, and personalized value to
help customers achieve success."

A water tower was to be located at the Industrial Park,
but the City requested that a water tower be built on U.S.
Hwy. 129 to provide adequate water pressure for the city
to meet fire suppression standards. The City paid $64,000
of the additional $140,000 needed for the construction of
the tower. According to Resolution 2000-02-01, dated Feb.
7, 2000, the City Council determined that the project
would initially contribute more than $700,000 of direct
economic benefit to the City's utility system.
Although the County built the water and sewer lines
and the water tower, the City operates and maintains the
system and receives all service fees.
According to Poor and City Manager Kent Cichon the
City made an agreement in 2000 that they would give new
businesses in that industrial park $350,000 credit for water
tap fees. Since there was no sewer or impact fees at that
time, those issues were not addressed in the agreement.
In a letter dated Feb. 4, 2002, Ralph Bowers, who was
city manager at that time, stated in a letter to former
County Coordinator Mike Williams, "The County's contri-
bution (the construction of the water and sewer lines and
the water tower) will more than offset any contemplated
According to Cichon charging tap fees and impact fees
is standard practice in most communities. Tap fees are
used to reimburse the City for the costs associated with
connecting a new customer to the utilities.
Impact fees are used to upgrade old systems or build
new systems as the use of the utilities increases due to
new customers. Cichon explains that a system has a limit-
ed capacity to pump out water and to take in sewage. As
new customers are added, the system has to be enlarged
or a new system has to be built.
"An impact fee takes the burden off current taxpayers
who have been here for years. Those who are moving into
the community should have to pay their fair share and not
take advantage of what is already in place."
The county commissioners requested a slot on the City's
agenda during their regular meeting on April 10. The City
did not agree, but the commissioners appeared before the
city council as a non-agenda group.
Commissioner Mike Adams acted as the spokesperson
for group and requested that the city council waive or
lower the fee for G.A.P. Roofing. The city council refused
but agreed to schedule a workshop on the issue.
The county commissioners, the city council members
and Nancy Oliver of the Hamilton County Development
Authority will hold a workshop at 7 p.m. on April 24, at
the Civic Center in Jasper.
"We are hopeful that the meeting will be fruitful," Oliv-
According to Cichon impact fees do not deter develop-
ment, they help allow for the capacity for future growth.
"Once there is no more capacity, economic development
stops in its tracks," Cichon said. "Other communitiky have
impact fees and they are booming."
"The County is trying to attract new businesses to he-'
area by offering ad 'alorem tax abatement: and otl, "i-
centives," Pr'bri said'hBitit appear the 'City is rdt, cooper-
ating. We realize that the City has to charge fees, but we

that were then available,
Mrs. R.D. Tompkins, more
affectionately called "Miss
Bessie" by her friends, was
the pioneer personage,
who, by personal canvass-
ing and much encourage-
ment, persuaded about 20
of the enterprising matrons
of the town to invest in the
name of a club a small li-
brary of books, fictional, his-
torical, and biographical. It
is said, with no special de-
gree of pride, that the works
of fiction predominated.
This club was organized
and operated under the
nom-de-plume of the
Tabard in Library Club. The
books were renewed at cer-
tain intervals and were
stored in a vacant building
in the center of town with
Jasper Pressing Club dis-
played all too vividly on its
windows. Some of the wags
of the town wished to know,
"Who did the pressing?" An
acceptable member was
elected as librarian and kept
account of the books that
were in circulation. This sys-
tem worked well and
proved the outlet and con-
nection with the outside
world, when transportation
was much more difficult
than it is today.
Mrs. Agnes Cone McRae,
a charming matron, former-
ly a teacher in the public
schools,'was the first presi-
dent. She handled the office
gracefully and well and dis-
played the innate ability she
possessed in guiding
Jasper's first club through its
infancy. The infant grew in
leaps and bounds. The
membership increased. A
social viewpoint developed,
the meetings devoted to the
social life of the club work
were held in the homes of
the members. Each meeting
of this kind was the signal

nity. Those were the days,
believe it or not, when the
bovine animals roamed
heart and fancy free over the
thoroughfare of the town,
chickens, hogs and other
predatory animals. Much
opposition to their removal
was met form the city fa-
thers, but committees work-
ing overtime, City Council
aid, etc., accomplished a
much desired end. Mrs.
Tompkins again deserves
much praise and recogni-
tion for her untiring effort.

The Jasper Woman's Club
continued to grow. In 1910
it was federated with the
General Federation of
Women's Clubs, which
makes it one of the oldest
clubs in the state.
., Becoming, a national, oc-
'ganization, paying dues,
and executing the courses
of study were as follows:
Shakespearean plays, geo-
graphical studies, American
history, civil government,
and other courses.
Thirty years have passed
since its organization and it
is still progressing. Many ca-
pable and efficient women
have served as presidents of
the club, standing at the
helm, guiding it off the
rocks that seemed at times
would wreck it.
Three of our club women
were called to serve as sec-
tional vice-president that is
an honor to any club. Since
the club works thorough
several departments, name-
ly educational, civic, music
and art, it is indeed wide in
Until recently it worked in
the capacity of Parent-
Teachers Association giving
much aid to the school in
talent, time and money. The
civic department that has al-
ways been very active, is
largely responsible for mak-
ing Jasper the-beautiful and
attractive little city it is to-
day and the haven of rest in
which to live.
This chapter could not be
closed without honorable
mention of the men who
played a fundamental part
in the club's history. Mr. Jim
Corbett, a friend of the club
and a very civic minded,
prominent man gave to the
Woman's Club a beautiful
lot on which to build a long
hoped for clubhouse. Sever-
al years passed, the club
could not see their way clear
to begin building a club-
house but kept constantly
adding to the building fund.
Then came the Roosevelt
administration with all of its
possibilities. Mr. Graham
Black, another civic minded
man, who has always
worked untiringly for the
interests of the Woman's
Club, working in coopera-
tion with Mrs. M.W.
Wetherington, our beloved
president, succeeded in get-
ting a W.P.A. (ed. note -
Works Progress Admisin-
stration) project which
made it possible to get a
Civic Center. The club origi-
nally put up $1,000 towards
the building and on the club
lot today stands a beautiful
building constructed of
rocks from the famous
Suwannee River, costing
around $10,000, a building
which towns many times
the size of Jasper would be
proud to own. Another man
contributing to the club is
Mr. Stanley Adams, who
bought the club note for the
sum of $400 thus making it
possible to raise $1,000 in
cash in order to get the
building. Other men have
contributed generously on
numerous occasions. The
men as a whole are interest-
ed in the undertakings and.

Recognizing child abuse and neglect for next nationwide ACT test
Child abuse affects chil-
dren of every age, race, and
income level. It often takes
place in the home and
comes from a person the
child knows and trusts a
parent, relative, babysitter,
or friend of the family.
Often abusers are ordi-
nary people caught in
stressful situations such as
young mothers and fathers
unprepared for the respon-
sibilities of raising a child,
overwhelmed single par-
ents with no support sys-
tem, families placed under
great stress by poverty, di-
vorce, or sickness, and par-
ents with alcohol or drug
A first step in helping or
getting help for an abused
or neglected child is to
identify the signs 'and
symptoms of abuse. There
are four major types of
child maltreatment. They.
are neglect, physical abuse,
sexual abuse, and emotion-
, Neglect is failure to pro-
yide for a child's basic
needs such as food, cloth-
ing, shelter, medical care,
education, or proper super--
vision. Symptoms of ne-

there is no supervision at

er abuses drugs or alcohol
then neglect is taking place.
Physical abuse is inten-
tional injury inflicted upon
a child. It may include se-
vere shaking, beating, kick-

sexual act with a child by an
adult or older child. It in-
cludes fondling or rubbing
the child's genitals, pene-

Compassion of donors helps St. Jude
Children's Research Hospital save lives
Imagine hearing the
dreaded words, "Your
child has cancer." Only a
few decades ago there was
no escape from the grasp of
this terrible disease. But
one man had a dream that
"no child should die in the
dawn of life." And through
this steadfast belief, the late
entertainer Danny Thomas

dren's Research 'Hospital,

where pioneering research
and revolutionary discov-
eries happen continually.
Researchers are solving the
mysteries of cancer and
other catastrophic diseases,
including sickle cell dis-
ease, AIDS, tuberculosis
and influenza. Because St.
Jude freely shares its dis-
coveries, the accomplish-
ments made at St. Jude
have completely changed
how the world treats chil-
dren with cancer and other
The continued and gener-
ous support of donors has
helped St. Jude assure that
no family ever pays for
treatment that is not cov-
ered 'by insurance, and
families without insurance
are never asked to pay. Be-
cause of the compassion
and commitment of mil-
.lions of donors, St. Jude is
able to continue its ground
breaking researchh that inm-
pacts these families lives.
Among the many ways to
help the life-saving work at
St. Jude are gifts to honor a
friend or relative. St. Jude's
Gift Catalog includes a line
of e-cards, print-your-own
cards and mail cards to fit
many occasions, including
seasonal greetings, birth-
days, anniversaries, chris-
tenings, bar mitzvahs, first
communions and more.
A memorial donation to
St. Jude can remember a de-

County accepted Mike
Williams' letter of resigna-
tion from the position of
County Coordinator effec-
tive March 21. Williams,

White Springs computer
system The County ap-
proved a request from the
Town of White Springs for
the reimbursement of
$1,809.25 that was spent to
service the town's computer
network system. The net-
work is part of the Hamilton
County Initiative to comput-
erize the criminal justice
agencies and the clerks' of-
fices of the various govern-
ments in the county."
White Springs paving pro-
jects The Town of White
Springs requested that the
County consider two small
road paving projects in
White Springs for the 2007-
08 Small County Road As-
sistance Program (SCRAP).
The areas under considera-
tion include all or parts of
Jewett St., Kendrick St. and
Suwannee St. The streets are
used as an evacuation route
as well as a by-pass route
when flooding or accidents
close U.S. 41 at the Spring
House Curve. Many semi-
tractor trailers have to use
those routes and the damage
to the streets has created an
emergency situation because
the streets are losing the sup-
port beds. If the damage is
not corrected, the roads may
have to be closed in the fu-
ture. The SCRAP is designed
for larger projects but the
County will contact the De-
partment of Transportation
to find out if the roads can be
added to larger project.
White Springs Fire De-
partment The Town of
White Springs requested the
County's assistance to pur-
chase new extrication equip-
ment. The existing equip-
ment is an outdated military
surplus product that no one
will repair due to liability is-
sues. According to Fire Chief
Steve Stith, the White
Springs Fire Department is
the only one in the county
who does not have extrica-
tion equipment and they
cannot provide an adequate
give a gift to St. Jude in lieu
of a wedding gift. This is an
exceptional way for guests
to give something from. the
heart that will be meaning-
ful to the couple, their
guests and countless num-
bers of children.
At St. Jude, the future is
demanding. There are pro-
grams to be funded, discov-
eries to be made and treat-.
ments to advance. Fortu-
nately there are donors
who share Danny Thomas'
unstoppable desire and un-
quenchable passion to pro-
tect and nurture the health
of children everywhere.

To the Relay for Life team members (both "official"
and "volunteer") for the School Board & Administra-
tive Offices, and to everyone who contributed to the
American Cancer Society, I offer a resounding "thank
you" for your participation in this year's event. At the
time of this writing, "Team Paradise" had collected
more than $2,375 for this worthy cause, easily sur-
passing our team's initial goal of $1,500! I am ex-
tremely grateful to everyone for their donations (be it
money, items for our fund' raisers, or their time). Con-
gratulations, too, to the other teams on their success-
es and-thanks for a great evening!
Watching the survivors during their victory lap was
inspiring, and the luminaria ceremony was touching,
as we honored the survivors and remembered those
whose lives were lost to this disease. If you or some-
one you know has been affected by cancer, I challenge
you now to become involved in next year's Relay for
Life. True, your involvement will require a lot of time
and work, but the rewards are'immeasurable!
The loss of a loved one is never easy to under-
stand. We wonder why? But we accept that it's God
will. We know our loved one has gone to a better
place.. March 26, our dear loved one Phillip Dale
Franklin never made it home. For a week everyone
searched to. find him. He was found April 1. Phillip
had made it to his final home with our Dear Lord.
We would like to take this time to thank all who
helped in the search, who called with concern, who
prayed for our Phillip and his' family, who brought
food and those who stopped by with a hug. We
thank all of the. Madison County Deputies and
Sheriff Pete Bucher, the search teams with dogs, the
helicopter pilots, the Mounted Patrol, every friend
and neighbor, the local and T.V. stations, The Madi-
sonr Carrier, Pastor Hicks and Pastor Peck, all of
Grandma's quilting buddies and members of her
church, Cherry Lake Baptist. The whole Madison
Community just poured out their hearts to our fam-
ily. Words can never express the- love and thanks
we feel for each and everyone. Please forgive us if
we' have forgotten someone. There were so. many.
We will never forget your.outpouring of love. May
God bless, each of you.
With our love, thank you again,

mentioned directly 104, or
more times in the New
Testament. A leading and
brilliant agnostic of Eng-'
land once said, "There is
no use wasting time dis-

tion is, 'Did Jesus Christ
rise from the dead?' If he
did, it is easy enough to
prove the other miracles;
but if not, the other mira-

as by instinct!

foolishness to those who

who are being saved it is
the power of God."

TI-lI IIQfnAV ApRII 9n 9nf0
By Lillian Norris
Sunday was a glorious
Easter day, the weather was
perfect, families and friends
gathered in churches and
together for a happy Easter.
My daughter Marybeth
Windham and her daugh-
ter Jordan, met for lunch
with Dr. Ben, Leigh Ann,
Trey and Kaleigh Norris at
their home for a delicious
lunch. Joining us were
friends Larry and Mary
Cail. The food Leigh Ann
had prepared was deli-
cious, so good, after lunch
the children (and adults)
had a fun time hiding and
Earlier (7 a.m.) I had at-
tended the Easter Sunrise
Service at First United
Methodist Church, which I
have been doing for several
years. Rev. Ames had a spe-
cial message and Suezette
Wiggins played the piano
for the singing. The ladies
had prepared a continental
breakfast (really a feast),
and the fellowship there is
always enjoyable, meeting
new friends and visiting
with old ones. A new friend
for me was sitting across
the table from Dorothy
Hilliard, who I learned is a
companion for Mrs. Pearl
Blair and Dorothy said she
was taking her (Mrs. Blair)
to Tallahassee to the doctor
I remembered her very
well. She is 93 and years-
ago we talked on the tele-
phone, we had mutual
friends. Truett and Gerry
Comer, -and she kept up
with them, later with Gerry.
It was good to hear from.
Mrs. Blair. Although she is
aging, she is doing well and
has a good friend in
Church service later at
First Presbyterian in Jasper
held communion service. A
good crowd was in atten-
dance with family visitors
and friends filling up the
church. The choir sang and
it was a worshipful service.
Later in the afternoon,
Ben and I attended the visi-
tation for a friend, Joe
Goodbread. Joe will be
missed greatly by family
and friends. On Saturday
morning at our ladies
breakfasts, Joe was there
when he was able to join his
friends. They will miss him
as will we all. I first met
him when the Jasper News
office was located in the
"old bank building" next-
door to Kayo's drug store.
That was where the men
met for their morning cof-
fee. That seems so long ago,
yet sometimes like only
yesterday. That was when I
first 'started working at the
paper, part-time in the of-
fice before moving further
into the operation.
Later the offices moved to
what is now Browns Flower
Shop (it was known as the
Curry Building then), and
we enjoyed visiting with
Marjorie Lee, the late
Dorothy Carter, Lynn
Lieupo Law and their cus-
tomers at Marjorie's Beauty
Shop. Something regarding
this time came to mind as I
was looking at Easter candy
for my favorite Brachs Jelly
Beans, which only seem to
be available around Easter.
At the office I always had
jelly beans on my desk and
Dorothy was the only per-
son I knew who loved
licorice, they were picked
out and saved for her when
a bag was opened. When I
bought them this year I de-
cided to try the licorice, and
they were good. Every time
I ate one, Dorothy was on
my mind. A short visit with
Margie recently she was
talking about her years in
the shop. She was there
when I came to Jasper, and
plan to talk with her more
later. She told me she did
manicures in her mother's
shop when she was still in
school, that is a long career.
We have been missing
Frances Stevenson at our
breakfasts. I hope she will
soon be back, and she says
she will. She is recuperating
at her sister's home in Val-
dosta. She will have some
more procedures this week
and will be back with us
soon, we miss her. Frances
says she is doing good and
will be ready to get back
home, although it is nice to
be with her sister, visiting
with her and her family
when they are in from At-
I also attended the Good
Friday service at Harvest
Fellowship on Friday
evening. This was spon-
sored by the Ministerial Al-
liance of Hamilton County
with ministers from the
county Churches taking
part in the service. It was
very inspirational; the mu-
sic and programs were spe-
Good news! The good
news is of the birth of the
Hutto Baby, Luke John
Hutto, who we have all
been praying for the family,
was born to Roger and Lau-
ra Lynn Hutto on April 15.
He weighed three pounds,
11 ounces, was 16 inches
long, and is now at Shands
Hospital in Gainesville
where he will remain for a
short while until he weighs
as much as the doctors are
happy with. Mother and
Daddy are doing well also.
It is our understanding that
he will be called Luke. Our
congratulations and best
wishes, and love to Luke,
Roger and Laura Lynn, all
the family and friends.
Jennings Primitive Bap-
tist Church had spring
meeting at their Church on
Easter Sunday. It was a
good day. Jimmy and,
Dorothy DeVane had fami-
ly members for the week-
end, as well as other guests.
Mike and Maurie and their
children, Eli and Mary
Hannah from Waycross,
their son Joshua whom
plays at the Church he at-
tends in Statesboro where
he is in school and was un-
able to be there. DeeDee
and Donny Phillips and
their daughter Annie were
here from Middleburg, Ed-
ward and Ruth Farr, their
son Bob and is daughter
Kristen from Albany. Ga.
DeeDee Phillips is principal
of Thunder Bolt Elementary
School in Clay County.
Fred and Dorothy DeVane
were here from Dowling
Park. Ada Rodgers had
planned to be here, but was
not able to on Sunday.
We finally tagged up
with Brenda Carte, had to
chase her down at the den-
tal office. I learned that the
Methodist Church in Jen-
nings had a great day on
Sunday. She had traveled to
Tallahassee, making three
trips to get Gerrett here for
the services. She is one
busy lady, and she is re-
tired? We tried to get more
information regarding her
trip to Beliz, but she didn't
have time to stop, on her
way to somewhere else, she
is one who is enjoying re-
tirement. We wish her well.
A few weeks ago I made
a trip to the Supervisor of
Elections Office in the "old
high school," to see what
had happened out there. It
is worth a trip. I got a com-
plete tour of the offices that
have been renovated there
and it was great. Every-
thing was so bright and
cheerful, decorated very
tasteful. The ladies had
been busy and Mr. Lump-
kin was so proud of the
new offices. If ,you have
time stop by, they would all
be glad to "show off" their
new location. We are happy

Fish Busters' Bulletin
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife
The 2006 Bassmaster Classic played
out in real time on ESPN's networks'and
thrilled nearly 22,000 fans during' live
weigh-ins at the Orange County- GCQn-
% eKViii'%IICenter. jn..thjsa163tl, si he
broke record after record. Preston Clark,
of Florida; claimed, the record for the'
heaviest bass %with an' 11-pound, 10-
ounce lunker that eclipsed a 30-year-old
record of eight pounds, nine ounces, and
several other fish broke the record as
well during the three-day tournament.
Luke Clausen bagged the heaviest sin-
gle-day catch of 29 pounds, six ounces
the first day.H:lis five-bass limit set the
all-time record for the Classic, even top-
ping the best previous seven-bass limit.
He went on to win the $500,000 grand
prize with a record-breaking, three-day
haul of 56 pounds, two ounces.
The Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) was a proud partici-
pant in the Classic, working behind the
scenes to help ensure the best possible
survival of the bass after the weigh-in.
Any club or organization that
complies with requirements
can apply for these permits at
MyFWC.com/permits. The i I
permit require- strnat-2 I
dling guidelines to ensure a
high percentage of caught
fish return to the water
tournament anglers to
keep more than one
bass over 22 inches long.
Research indicates there is no
reason to expect "tournaments like the
Classic to cause measurable harm to fish
populations. That has been the consis-
tent conclusion of researchers since 1983.
In the 1990s, the FWC launched a three-
year project to evaluate tournament
practices and help enhance anglers' live-
release skills and concluded they were
not more harmful than other recreation-
al angling practices.
A spawning bass typically produces
about 40,000 eggs at a time, and a female
can spawn multiple times per
V'AP year for 10 or more years. The
critical factor isn't the number
of egs but the habitat condi-
Sit t ?enable young fish to
survive and eventually
:.spawn. Each adult fish
/ only needs to replace itself
once to keep the popula-
S tion stable.
The FWC pioneered an in-
novative habitat improve-
ment tool that included drawing
the lakes down to expose the bot-
tom and simulate a more natural cycle of
droughts and wet years, thus allowing
the lake to purge itself. Subsequent re-
finements of the drawdown technique
yielded conditions more suitable for
bass, bream and crappie spawning, and
new regulations have helped these fish-
eries flourish. The string of Classic
records that were broken this February
reflects the success of these FWC conser-
Although tournaments have their';
share of critics, they generate a great
deal of attention and interest in recre-
ational fishing. Television coverage of

Bronson urges vaccinations as Equine
Encephalitis cases start early in Florida
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging horse
owners to vaccinate their
horses against Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
and West Nile Virus
(WNV) as mosquito season
gets under way. Four cases
of EEE have already been
confirmed in Florida since
January one as recently as
last week even though the
first cases are not usually
seen until May.
Bronson says the majori-
ty of cases can be prevent-
ed through proper vaccina-
tions and booster shots
against mosquito borne ill-
nesses and he is reminding
horse owners that' now is
the time to take action.
"Last year there were 150
reported cases of EEE
across 43 counties, triple
the number from the year
before when 48 cases of the
disease reported impacting
27 counties," Bronson said.
"Now that mosquito sea-
sonzis upon its, it is critical
that .horse .owners take:
steps to protect their ani-
mals. We have already
seen some EEE cases due
to the relatively warm win-
ter and'we need to ensure
that these cases are kept to
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous
system and is transmitted
to horses by infected mos-
quitoes. Signs of the virus
include fever, listlessness,
stumbling, circling, coma
and usually death. The dis-
ease is fatal in horses in 90
percent of the cases.
Bronson says he is
pleased that no cases of
WNV have been reported
so far this year, and WNV
cases have continued to_
drop over the years since a
vaccination against the dis-
ease became available in
"There was a lot of atten-
tion paid to WNV when it
was first discovered in
Florida in 2000. Horse
owners did a very good job
in protecting their animals
from this disea-se.' \e want'
to be sure they are just as
aggressive in protecting
horses against EEE," Bron-
The Department and the
state's numerous mosquito
control districts have
strengthened their surveil-
lance, control and preven-
tion measures in order to.
be better prepared for mos-
There are ongoing efforts'
to keep the mosquito pop-
ulations down but because.
there is no fool proof
method to prevent the dis-
eases, vaccinations are crit-
So far this year EEE has
been confirmed in horses
in Columbia, Duval, Mari-
on and Levy counties, all
of which were fatal.

IT I lvnlA PR 20 21". THE... JP NEWS Jaser FPAE"
By Johnny Bullard
The weather for the Easter
weekend was "Chamber of
Commerce" of weather -
clear blue skies, warm, and
just glorious. I enjoyed
every moment of the Easter
weekend, and I sincerely
hope all of my readers en-
joyed theirs as well.
On Friday, good friends,
Ken and Nancy Buchanan,
Loxahatchee, along with
Ken's mother, and a large
group of assorted family
members traveled up to the
Suwannee shore and spent
the weekend at the cabins
over at Stephen Foster. On
Saturday evening, all of
family members, except me,
join the Buchanan's down in
White Springs for a chicken
pilau and lots of fun and
laughter. Ken and Nancy
are major contributors to
our annual Folk Festival as
well as many other events.'
We always enjoy our visits
with them. In addition to the
Bullard family, the
Buchanans were joined on
Saturday evening by Nora
Lang, White Springs. Nancy
and Nora worked together a*
number of years ago in Palm
Beach County small world.
Speaking of Stephen Fos-
ter, many thanks to all the
staff members at. Stephen
Foster and especially to Pat
Cromer, Museum Guide,
and Larry Hoover, special
program assistant, for all
their hard work in making
our 39th annual Easter Sun-
rise Service on Sunday,
April 16, a huge success. Ap-
proximately 200 worshipers
gathered on the East lawn of.
the carillon tower to hear the
joyous Easter message and
what a message it was.

on Easter Sunday is Lovely
Mae Williams. Lovely Mae,
like me, is a native of White
Springs, and we love the
sandy soil of our beloved
Hamilton County. Happy
belated birthday wishes to
Lovely Mae who recently
celebrated the 34th anniver-
sary of her 39th birthday.
She is one of the youngest
individuals for her age that I
know. I love her, and she is
a dear and cherished friend.
I wish her many, many
more happy birthdays!!!
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Mr. Joe
Lee Goodbread, Jasper.
Mrs. "Vi", Sheryl, and all
the family are in our
prayers. Mr. Goodbread
was a member of one of this
county's pioneer families.
The history of the Good-
bread family in north Flori-
da is a very interesting one.
Descended from a family
who came to Florida from
Cumberland Island, Ga., the
Goodbread's were promi-
nent, early citizens of this
section, owning and control-
ling vast amounts of land
and served in prominent
business and governmental
capacities during Florida's
early statehood and even
during territorial times.
Some members of this fami-
ly included: the late Lassie
Goodbread Black and Nettie
Black Ozaki, Lake City, Mrs.
Joe "Lizzie" McAlpin, White
Springs, as well as the late
Frank and Clyde Wiggins,
White Springs. Mr. Good-
bread meant a lot to the de-
velopment of the state, and
he loved Hamilton County.
He leaves a void in our com-
munity. Graveside services
were conducted for Mr.
Goodbread April 17, at
Evergreen Cemetery, Jasper.
Congratulations to all the
members of the Soccer
League in White Springs. I
have enjoyed reading about
your accomplishments and
seeing your photographs in
the newspaper. Kudos to
"CoAch" Brad Hall, as well
as all the other adults in our
community who help with
soccer. You, are appreciated.

Man's best friend can help
you fight arthritis
Did you know that the family dog
could be the best thing to happen to
your health? A brisk walk with your
canine companion can help keep you
and your dog fit and can relieve some
of the aches, pains and stiffness
associated with osteoarthritis.
More than 20 million Americans
have osteoarthritis, also known as OA.
OA is a degenerative joint disease that
is characterized by the breakdown of
joint cartilage, with bone eventually
meeting bone. Many of the disease
signs, symptoms and treatments are
similar in both pets and people.
"With proper diet, exercise and
medical treatment, mobility can be
maintained and arthritis pain reduced,"
says Dr. John H. Klippel, president
and CEO of the Arthritis Foundation.
"This means that your twice-daily
walks can help to keep both you and
your pet fit while alleviating pain and
Early morning stiffness is a common
sign of arthritis. While the temptation
to rest in order to avoid aggravating
the condition is strong, exercise
actually helps keeping joints
lubricated and strengthening muscles

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.
