School's out, summer is
here and the Alapaha River
is dry it's time to load up
your ATVs behind your
four-wheel drive truck and
ride the river! Not so fast!
In December 2005, The
Suwannee River Water
Management District (SR-
WMD) released a warning
that the use of off-road ve-
hicles (ORVs) in the banks
, of the Alapaha River was
banned and that violators
will be cited. The rule ban-
ning motorized vehicles
was adopted by the Dis-
trict governing board in
September 2004 and

Hamilton County 4th of July Celebration
The Hamilton County 4th of July Celebration, presented by the Hamilton
County Babe Ruth League, will be held on Tuesday, July 4, at the Hamil-
ton County Recreation Center in Jasper. Events will be begin at 4 p.m. Fire-
works will begin at dusk and will be launched at the Soccer Complex. Live
entertainment will be provided along with a bounce house, kid's games,
and lots of food and vendors.

ORV ban in Alapaha River affects

recreation and economy of county


friends and family.
One life-time resident
and land-owner in Hamil-
ton County doesn't agree
with the ban.
"I am disappointed that
the District made this deci-
sion without advertising
the public hearings in our
area. I enjoyed riding there
with my children and now
we can't do that."
The notices were posted
in the Florida Administra-
tive Weekly in Feb. /March
2005, but not in The Jasper
News or any other area
newspaper, according to
Dinges. The Florida Ad-
ministrative Weekly lists
proposed rules and regula-
tions, notices of public
meetings and bid an-
nouncements .
According to a
spokesperson at the Ad-
ministrative Code and
Weekly Unit in Tallahas-
see, the publication is
available at libraries, leg-
islative and state depart-
ments and by subscription.

Ensley Newsome Sr.

announces candidacy for

School Board District 4
Greetings, my name is Ensley Newsome Sr., and I am run-
ning for School Board District 4. First I would like to say that I
am a bus driver and I have been in the school system for 26
years. I am a 1972 graduate of Hamilton County High School
and a member of New Jerusalem Baptist Church.
My mission as a board member, if elected, is to work with
the community so that our children can have the best educa-
tion available, not the second best. As a bus driver, I see many
changes that can be made to correct the discipline plan.
If you decide to put me in your trust, I will be a full-time
member. With your support and trust in me, together we.can
reach a positive goal in improving the performance of all stu-
dents.
I am a part of transporting most of your children to school.
Now, I want to be the second step in being a part of the edu-
cation process.
I would like to thank God for enabling me to be a part of
the election process. Many blessings to every one of you for
your support.


Ensley Newsome Sr.


Protection report describ-
ing ecological damage as-
sociated with the use of ve-
hicles in the dry riverbed
and on its banks.
Damage cited in the re-
port includes destruction
of vegetation, significant
bank erosion and smother-
ing of habitats important
for fish and wildlife. The
report recommended that
motorized vehicles be kept
out of the entire river sys-
tem, including the flood-
plain, riverbanks, and
riverbed to prevent further
environmental damage.
Jon Dinges, SRWMD Di-
rector of Resource Manage-
ment, said warning signs
, .-lU.l be posted on SR-


WMD land at locations
known to be entrance
points for riders, such as
near the bridge at SR 6 and
US 41 in Hamilton Coun-
ty. A sign has been posted
on the south side of the riv-
er, but there is not one on
the north side where most
of the ORVs enter the river
bed.
' Shortly after the ban
went into effect, the wa-
ter level rose in the river
and until just recently,
the river has not been
navigable by ORVs. But
when the riverbed is dry,
local off-roaders as well
as those from all over

Bob Gonynor questions
the effectiveness of a notice
that is not posted locally.
Gonynor and his family
have tried to ride the Ala-
paha at least once a month
since 1993 when they
moved to Cherry Lake. He
has taken his two sons,
who are now in their twen-
ties, camping in the dry
riverbed many times. And
more recently, he has been
taking his grandson.
He is a member of the
Florida Explorer Club,
which is dedicated to the
preservation of forests and
campgrounds throughout
Florida. According to the
club website, the club is for
those who are interested in
"good, clean family fun,"


not those who "are looking
for a weekend of drinking
and blazing the trails."
In other words, Gonynor
and his fellow club mem-
bers just want somewhere
to enjoy a weekend of
camping and off-road rid-
ing with their families.
Another member of the
Florida Explorer Club,
Gabe Simpson from Mayo,
Fla., is very concerned
about the closing of the
Alapaha River. He and his
family have been riding the
river since 2000.
"It is one of my family's
favorite places to spend
time together away from
the hustle of the general
population and the 'grind'
of everyday life," Simpson
said.
The club has been host-
ing rides and camp-outs at
the river since 2001. As part
of the club's mission, they
have always enforced "pack


it in, pack it out" on all trail
rides and even pack in their
own firewood. Simpson
said that they make it a
practice to remove trash
that other, less considerate
riders leave behind. All
new trail riders are instruct-
ed to not ride on the banks
of the riverbed and to never
destroy vegetation.
Members of Gator 4x4 in
Gainesville, Fla., have rid-
den the Alapaha River on
several occasions. Accord-
ing to Lewis Nellinger, a
club member, as many as 18
vehicles and as few as sev-
en participated- in the rides.
"As a responsible club,
we do our best to impact
the river and the banks as
little as possible," Nellinger
said. "I have seen where
people ride on the banks,
but we do not condone that
behavior."
Nellinger added that the
club goes to ride and social-

and eight, and 25% for
years nine and ten. The
County will also pAy Gate
$1,000,000, which will
come from phosphate fees
received by the county.
Gate Ethanol has agreed to
provide an accounting of
the cash incentive to verify
that the money has been
used for infrastructure pur-
poses.
As part of the agreement,
Gate Ethanol will hold a
job fair in late summer or'
early fall 2007 to identify as
many qualified job appli-
cants that are Hamilton
County residents as possi-
ble.
Gate Ethanol has,re-
quested an expedited per-
mitting review by the Of-
fice of Tourism, Trade and
Economic Development of
all the departments in-
volved in the permitting

process for permits ca

ize, not to tear up their ve-
hicles or other people's
property.
According to Nellinger,
all ORVs should not be pro-
hibited, only those causing
the problems. Signs should
be posted and violators
should be fined. The fines
could be used to pay for
equipment and personnel to
patrol the river.
Many off-roaders feel that
the river itself causes as
much erosion and damage
as ORVs do. "The water in
the river itself is constantly
changing the banks. The
rocks that have been eroded
by the water over the years
are an indication of that,"
Nellinger said. "The impact
we or four-wheelers have is
minimal compared to what
the water itself does."
Nellinger wonders if the
district's ruling was based
on an actual process of dis-
covery or on the complaints
of a few property owners.


According to Dinges, the
Alapaha was closed based
on observations made by
SRWMD staff of the dam-
age to the riverbanks.
"District lands are open
for recreational opportuni-
ties such as hiking, biking
and fishing, and we even al-
low limited ATV use at
Mallory Swamp during
non-hunting season," said
Dinges. "But our highest
priority is the protection of
our natural resources and in
most cases, ATV use is not
compatible with that goal."
Jay Willingham has been
hunting and fishing here
since 1967 and now lives
here. He noted that some
erosion is natural but that
ORVs "tear the banks to
pieces."
According to Willingham,
ORV riders cut fences, tear
down signs and leave trash
everywhere. He added that
he can hear the engines
revving up as they climb


the bluffs near his home
.and he has even heard them
in the early hours of the
morning.
Another lifetime resident
and landowner who asked'
not to be identified said that
the he agrees with the Dis-
trict's decision. He said that
the people on ATVs would
drive up the banks and onto
private property. He added
that the banks were being
eroded and that natural ar-
eas were being destroyed.
He feels that the river is a
good area for hiking and
horseback riding when it is
dry and for canoeing and
fishing when the river is
running.
"It is bad that a few peo-
ple can ruin things for so
many others, but they won't
stay in the bottom," Willing-
ham said.

The Federal No Child Left Behind Act of
2001 requires states to evaluate the perfor-
mance of all students in all public schools
to determine whether schools, school dis-
tricts, and the state have made adequate
yearly progress (AYP). A Provisional AYP
is given to "A" and "B" schools who miss
one or more of the 39 AYP criteria.
Not making adequate yearly, progress
does not mean that a school is failing. It
means that the school has not met a certain
.F;* < ... .t!-i
standard for at least one group of students.
'""'SHE met 100 percent of dithe necessary
criteria to make AYP while NHE met 92
percent to make Provisional, AYP. CHE

those injuries occur around
the July Fourth holiday.
About 2,000 eye injuries are
reported each year, with near-
ly halt"f by bystanders, not the
people who set off the fire-
works.
Use only Florida state-al-
lowed firework'sandTo6ntact
'your local fire official to find
out what is legal in your city.
.A-s \\ith an)' purchase, check
the credibility of the, dealer to
make sure their fireworks are
reliable and that they come
from a licensed source.
Always read and follow the
directions on each package. If
lighting fireworks at home,
only adults should light
them. Children should not
stand close to them when
they are lighting fireworks.
'Do not consume alcoholic
beverages while lighting
sparklers.
Only use fireworks out-
doors, away from homes, dry
grass or. any flammable itefns.
Always light on a hard, flat
and level surface to prevent
anitem from spilling over.
View fireworks from at
least 500 feet away/and keep,
away from'lighted fireworks.
Many .injuries occur when
checking on fireworks that
have failed to ignite,.
Eyeglasses or sunglasses
can help protect the eyes from
smoke, falling- ash and stray
sparks.
Even sparklers can be dan-
gerous they are the number
neiauseof eye-injurytochil-
dren. Sparklers are not toys -
they consist of metal shrapnel
burning at about 1,800 de-
grees Fahrenheit. Never point
or throw sparklers at another
person.
Light only one at a time and
keep a safe distance. Have a
hose ready and put used
sparklers in a bucket of water.
Don't attempt to re-light a
"dud." If a sparkler fails to ig-
nite, let stand for at least five
minutes, then immerse in wa-
ter.
Animals are often fright-
ened by the sounds of fire-
works. To protect your "best
friends," keep them indoors -
away from the loud noise -
and secure.
If an accident does occur,
cover the injured eye. Doti't
a:.pply pressure to the eye por
rub it, as that can make the in-
jury worse and cause bleed-
ing. Don't eat or drink any-
thing until seen by a doctor.
Mostimportantly, seek.med-
ical help immediately.

When a coworker or
friend feels blue, your first
instinct may be to avoid
them like a crowded mall
during the holidays. Next
time, however, try reaching
out to that special someone
who looks a little low. You
may be surprised how easy
it can be, and how it will
benefit you too.
"It doesn't take much. to
help someone feel better,"
said Jacqueline Amos-Hol-
loway, author of "To Soar
with Eagles." She adds,
"Just offering a smile or a
hello can mean a lot to
someone who's feeling
down."
Holloway shares five
ways to encourage others
and, in turn, yourself.
Offer a kind word. A sim-
ple compliment or an ex-
pression of appreciation
can help. Offering some-
thing sincere like, "You
look nice today" or
"Thanks for your great
work on that project" can
provide powerful encour-
agement.

Stay in tune. Ask some-
one how they are or what's
going on, and take time to
really listen instead of
glancing at your watch
every 30 seconds.
Be there. There is power
in physical presence. Some-
times just being around
someone who is hurting
can provide encouragement
to both parties.
Write a note or send an
encouraging e-mail. Let
them know you are there
for them.
Pray for them. If.you are a
spiritual person, remember
to pray for those who are
struggling, and ask God to
heal their hurts and provide
for their needs.
Amazingly, when you
take time to add sparkle to
a sinking spirit, you'll find
that not only does the other
person feel better, but you
feel a little lighter too.

As we celebrate Independence Day, we are once again
reminded that freedom is not free. Just as America
fought for independence in 1776, American troops
continue to defend freedom around the world today.
July Fourth is,a day to honor the men and women who
have sacrificed so much to protect our liberty.
It's a day to proudly celebrate our great country
and the ideals it represents.
Happy Birthday, America let freedom ring forever!

Here I am man', of miles from home
Quite a distance from where the buffalo roam
I am here in the dust treading in desert sand
Trying to bnng Freedom and Democracy to a brother man
It's tiresome and aggravating at times
But, % e keep on pushing to hear victory's chimes
We often think of \ ou back home safe in your bed
Here, we are luckN to find a rock to lay our weary head
We picture you in your big fine cars
We ha\e half-tracks. Hum% ees, jeeps and sleep under the stars
You kiss the kids good night and sleep with your wives
While v. e are fighting to protect and secure your lives
We don't ha\ e time for a good night's rest
We are up and about we, can't stand no mess
There are no trips to Burger King, China Garden or even the mall
We ha\ e no time for pleasures; duty calls
Each morning \%e awake, we check our feet
We ha% e no % after for bathing or to brush our teeth
We check our weapons, grenades and ammo clips
We rarely get a taste of coffee across our lips
Lip and at 'em we go on patrol
We do this to keep the insurgents in control
Whe\\!! A rocket just whistled d b\
Some people are mad at us, I don't kno%% wh\
We are here to help in any way we can
But the) seem to think we are after their land
We are here to do a special job
Their wealth, oil and land we will never rob
We believe in God and the words he said
We fight hard to keep our obituaries from being read
We'll keep on fighting until the end
We have your blessings and prayers to ensure us a win
Keep on praying for us in this danger zone
So that one day we all will be back home
This Fourth of July remember those who are so far from home.
Say a special prayer for them as we celebrate the birth of our nation.
God bless America.

Holly Goodin qualifies


for rodeo nationals


Holly Goodin, daughter
of Louis and Susan Good-
in of Jasper, won Reserve
Champion Barrel Racer at
the Georgia/Florida
Youth Rodeo Finals this
weekend at The Equestri-
an Center in Jacksonville.
This was a great accom-
plishment for Holly since
she broke her leg in No-
vember. She has missed
two rodeo's and had to


ride with a cast on her leg
in four rodeo's.
She has also been truly
blessed with a great little
horse, Lady, also known
as "that little mare," who
is the smallest horse on
the circuit.
Holly and Lady have
qualified to compete in
the International Finalist
Youth Rodeo Association
in Shawnee, Okla., as a


member of the
Gator/Dawg Team with
the Georgia/Florida
Youth Rodeo Association
from July 10 through July
15.
Holly's family thanks
God for 'her healing and
her determination to ride.
Even in pain, she kept go-
ing. They ask that you
keep them in your
prayers.

Teach kids to be good sports on

the field and in the game of life ,.. .


Whether your child
plays football, soccer, ten-
nis, baseball, or some other
sport, make sure they're
not just out there to win -
but to learn the lessons
they'll need to make it
through life: how to be
good sports and have re-
spect for themselves,
coaches,' teammates and
competitors.
Learning Through
Sports and Mountain West
Conference (MWC), one of
the top collegiate athletic
conferences composed of
nine Division I-A institu-
tions, have launched an
online program called
STAR Sportsmanship that
teaches positive behaviors
in an interactive learning
format.
The lessons 'from the
prograin can be used by
parents as they teach their
*o

children how to behave on
the sports field. The four-
step principle can also be
applied to a variety of situ-
ations on and off the play-
ing field. Researchers be-
hind STAR strongly em-
phasize that parents are
the key to keeping kids on
track.
The MWC advocates the
STAR principle of sports-
manship that teaches four
simple steps to evaluate
their behavior. When faced
with a conflict, children
should think through the
S-T-A-R:
Stop when it's time to
make a sportsmanship de-
cision.
Think how your actions
could affect you, your
team and, your opponents.
Act right away to show
good sportsmanship.
Replay your actions in


your mind and decide if
you showed good sports-
manship.
Parents are encouraged
to talk with their children
about the ranting and rav-
ings of professional ath-
letes they see on television.
Ask their child how the
athlete looks when being a
poor sport. Could his be-
havior hurt someone else
or make the game less en-
joyable? How should he or
she have acted? What
would you have done in
that situation and would
that be the right behavior?
Some of the same ques-
tions apply when talking
about steroid use.
For more information on
the, STAR Sportsmanship
program or the STAR prin-
ciples, visit www.learn-
ingthroughsports.com or

Garden Almanac
June/July

Remove declining flow-
ering annuals and plant
flowers that can weather
the summer. Think tropical
and install colorful foliage
plants like coleus, copper
plant (Acalypha), croton,
alternanthera, ornamental
sweet potato, and 'Magilla'
perilla. Flowers for summer
sun include melampodium,
pentas, bat-face cuphea
(Cuphea llavea), portulaca,
purslane, salvia, bush alla-
manda, and 'Profusion'
zinnia.
If you have enough
space, plant plumbago or
firebush (Hamelia patens).
A number of types of man-
devilla are wonderful flow-
ering vines for sunny areas.
For areas in morning sun
and afternoon shade you
can't beat 'Summer Wave'
torenia, a low-growing
bedding plant. For shadier
areas use impatiens, ja-
cobinia, caladium, Persian
shield, coleus, and butterfly
gingers.
Bulbs or tubers to plant
now include agapanthus,


blackberry lily, clivia, glo-
riosa lily, achimenes,
crinum (most folks in
Hamilton County call these
lilies), flag iris, Louisiana
iris, and Japanese iris.
Gladiolus bloom in only
nine weeks from planting
and make great cut flowers,
as do zinnias and cosmos
that can easily be grown
from seed.
Keep spent blooms on
roses and butterfly bushes
cut. Cutting flowers is good
for the plants and will give
you more flowers in the
long run.
Crape myrtles are bloom-
ing, so it's an excellent time
to select ones for your land-
scape. Choose cultivars
with the appropriate ma-
ture size for the site.
Mow the lawn at least
weekly. Fertilizing it now
will just encourage addi-
tional growth, but, if you
just planted plugs and are
trying to get them to
spread, fertilizing now is
okay.
Summer can bring lawn
pests. Spittlebugs damage
centipede lawns when pop-
ulations become excessive.
These small dark brown to
black insects, with two or-
ange stripes across the
back,, cause yellow or red-
dish streaks down grass,
blades, which eventually

turn brown. The whole
lawn takes on a brownish
cast. Spraying kills benefi-
cial predators, so, if dam-
age isn't significant, don't
spray. If you do spray, fol-
low label directions careful-
ly.
Chinch bug damage in St.
Augustine lawns appears
as straw-colored areas in
full sun. These tiny insects
are black with white wing
patches on their backs. If
you see significant damage
and insects, spray only the
affected areas and 10 to 15
feet around them. Also in
St. Augustine lawns, signif-
icant damage from gray
leaf spot fungus may re-
quire several applications
of a lawn fungicide labeled
for gray leaf spot.
Poison ivy is in full leaf
now. Glyphosate herbi-
cides will help consider-
ably. Follow label direc-
tions.
Solarize soil to reduce ne-
matode populations in veg-
etable gardens. First re-
move old plant debris, then
till the area thoroughly.
Moisten well and cover
with clear plastic film. Seal
the edges with soil. Leave
the cover on for six weeks.

White Springs l







i By Johnny Bullard


It is hard to believe that the
Fourth of July will be here
next Tuesday. I love the
Fourth of July. I always think
of the American Flags be-
decking the main streets in
our various towns and cities,
hot dogs, watermelon, fire-
works, and lots of family fun.
Amidst all the fun and frol-
ic, don't forget that we are
celebrating our nation's inde-
pendence. The Declaration of
Independence was signed on
July 4,1776, and declared we
were free from Great Britain,
but we had to fight and win
the Revolutionary War to
gain our independence.
Thousands gave their lives
defending that Declaration.
So as you are "chowing
down" on some great bar-
beque or homemade ice
cream, take some time to re-
flect on the price paid for our
Independence.
'A number of friends, fami-
ly, and fans, of "Spiritual
Rez" the wonderful reg-
gae/dance party band that
includes Toft Willingham,
son of Jay and Linda Willing-
ham, Jasper, boogiedd"
down at Spirit of the Suwan-
nee's Music Hall on Friday,
June 23.1 I am so happy I was
privileged to be among those
enjoying this "feel good"
music.
I know Jay and Linda were
very delighted to have their
son, James, White Plains, N.
Y., visiting with them for the
week. James works for a film
production company. He is a
graduate of the Ringling
School of Art, SarasoI:" '*
know Linda and Jay are'Very'
proud of both "boys."
I work in Jasper each day,


and the people and business-
es of Jasper have a special
place in my heart. I can tell
you that there are some good
cooks in Jasper: Myra's ham-
burger or cheeseburger, the
barbeque pork sandwich at
the A & B Barbeque, Mrs.
Waters' fried chicken and
okra and tomatoes at H&F,
the cold plate chicken and
tuna salad at Rooster's, the
barbeque chicken salad at
Cowboy's, the chef salad at
Shamrock's, and the maca-
roni and cheese, greens and
combread at the Foodway
Deli and, of course "Miss"
Dee's Almond Joy Cake (but
you'll have to special order
one. of those), and Lonnie's
fried chicken gizzards. I hope
I haven't missed anyone, but
I want all of these fine folks.
to know, that I appreciate
you.
Vacation Bible School will
be held at First Baptist
Church, White Springs, July
10 through 14. Supper will be
served in the fellowship hall
each night at 6 p.m. Bible
School will be held nightly
from 6:30 p.m. till 8:30 p.m.
Janet Moses will hold her

'house at her shop on Bridge
Street, White Springs from
July 6 through 9. With great
bargains on many items in
the store. Most store items

Friends of Ken Buchanan,
Loxahatchee, are glad to hear
that he is recovering and feel-
ing better., follop-ing his re-
fcent "i cardio'' ur.ger\.
Please' keep him, Nancy,
Ken's mother and daughter,
and all the family in your


prayers. Get well soon, Ken!
Tony and Joann Shotwell,
White Springs, longtime and
wonderful community sup-
porters and owners of the
Country Cafe, recently sold
the caf6 to Mark and Linda
Petrillo from Palm Beach
County. They love it here in
north Florida and hope to of-
fer the same "down home"
north Florida menu as was
offered by Tony and Joann.
They hope, a little later
down the line, to be opened
on Sundays for Sunday
lunch. We will miss Tony
and Joann and wish them
well. Thank you, for all your
generosity to so many in our
community, including SHE.
Welcome to White Springs,
Mark and Linda Petrillo.
I shared a visit with newly-
wed, Georgeann Sapp
Roland, on Saturday after-
noon, June 24, at Foodway,
Jasper. She was going out to
share a visit with Hugh and
Jan Hunter, and was being
joined there by husband,
Michael. Georgeann is the
daughter of George Sapp,
Douglas, Ga., and the late
Louann Sapp, Jasper. Pater-
nal grandparents were the
late Joe and Mildred Sapp,
Jasper. Georgeann was mar-
ried on June 5, in Hawaii.
Michael and Georgeann are
residing in Eastman, Ga. She
was feted with a wedding
shower at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. E.F. ( Mickey and
Linda) Shortt, Jasper, on Sat-
urday afternoon.
Laura Leigh and I drove by
the Camp Industrial Park, on
Friday, June 23, to peruse the
construction on the building
for the "roofing materials"
company, soon to locate here.
Taylor Industrial, Jasper,
Florida, is the contractor, and
the building, when complet-
ed, will be quite impressive.
Laura Leigh and I were hap-
py to wave to our cousin,
George Lamar Roberson,
who is employed by Taylor
Industrial.
Don't forget the various
Fourth of July events that are


taking place in our area.
Jasper and Lake City will
both host Fourth of July cele-
brations complete with fire-
works and all the "trim-
mings".
Happy birthday on July 4,
to Ms. Paula Williams,
Jasper. She means so much to
our community through her
good works with the Hamil-
ton County School System, as
well as her many civic en-
deavors, especially her faith-
fulness to Greater Poplar
Springs Baptist Church,
Jasper. We wish Paula many
more happy birthdays!
Mrs. Verna Mae Johnson,
longtime personal friend,
south county resident and
political activist, who lives at
the "Huckabuck", on the Riv-
er Road near White Springs,
will host her annual Jam-
boree on July 29th. This is a
huge barbeque and cookout
to which all are invited and
encouraged to attend. If you
want to enjoy some good
food, a cool drink, have some
spirited political conversa-
tion and discussions, and just
a good time with friends -
stop by on July 29th from
about 11 a.m. until and visit
with Mrs. Johnson.
Please remember the fol-
lowing in prayer: Preston

CSM Anthony Boles visits HCHS


Hamilton County High
School alumnus Anthony
Boles visited the Air Force
JROTC cadets on May 10.'
Anthony Boles is currently
on active duty with the
United States Army. Enlist-
ing after graduation 24
years ago, he has attained
the rank of Command
Sergeant Major, the highest
enlisted rank possible. CSM
Boles is assigned to the
264th Combat Support
Brigade, Fort Bragg, North
Carolina.
CSM Boles spent the day
talking to the Cadets about


growing up in Hamilton
County and his high school
experiences. He told them
about the value of a sound
education and about build-
ing on hfieir high school ed-
ucation, goal setting, find-
ing a career they like, and
having a backup plan.
The students asked CSM
Boles many questions
about life in the Army, his
travels around the world,
his experiences with differ-
ent cultures, his time in
Iraq, how he earned his de-
gree in the Army, and if he
will return to Hamilton


County.
"To have an individual
take time out from his busy
schedule, to return to his
alma mater and share these
important principles with
our students is outstand-
ing. We can not thank him
enough," says Lt. Col. Dar-
rell B. Davis, Senior Aero-
space Science Instructor at
FL-943.
CSM Boles will deploy to
Qatar this summer to take
over duties as the CSM for
a combat battalion with re-
sponsibilities from Iraq to
Afghanistan.

From the Administration
by Waylon Bush
Well, the good news in
White Springs, is that South
Hamilton Elementary is an
"A" school for the 2005-2006
year. Gov. Jeb Bush and Ed-
ucation Commissioner. John
L. Winn announced June 14,
that South Hamilton Ele-
mentary School had earned
the grade of an "A" for its
performance on the FCAT.
According to a spokesman
of the Department of Educa-
tion, "South Hamilton Ele-
mentary School is a shining
example of what happens
when you combine devoted
leadership, committed
teachers and determined
students."
'Not only did SHE receive
an "A," but the school also
achieved Adequate Yearly
Progress under No Child
Left Behind (NCLB). Under
the NCLB each State estab-
lishes a definition of "ade-
quate yearly progress"
(AYP) to use each year to de-
termine the achievement of
each school district and
school. The definition of
AYP is diagnostic in nature,
and intended to highlight
where schools need im-
provement and should focus
their resources. Under the
NCLB, schools are held ac-
countable for the achieve-
ment of all students, not just
average student perfor-

mance. The tough
task though is to
;( *" continue to meet
AYP which raises
its standards each
3 year.
A lot of people
need credit for this
accomplishment
and as we list them,
please understand
that we are not list-
ing them in any
kind of priority.
First, we must con-
gratulate the stu-
dents for their great effort,
attendance, and willingness
to face this challenge. The
fact that they stayed at the
task of learning day after day
with such a positive outlook
was just unbelievable.
The teachers at SHE de-

serve so much credit for their
hard work. Honestly, they
got eyeball to eyeball with
the students and challenged
them to do their absolute
best. The teachers really ded-
icated themselves to making
this happen. Enough cannot
be said about what they ac-
complished with all of their
students. Most of these
teachers have just completed
the Math Initiative training
in Gainesville, in an attempt
to help raise SHE math
scores even higher next year.
They seem to never rest; they
work throughout the sum-
mer. For these dedicated
teachers, teaching is not an
eight to three job anymore, if
it ever was.
Parents were in the act as
well, by assisting their chil-
dren at home with study,
homework, and practice.
They also motivated and in-
spifed their children in so
many ways. Probably their
greatest contribution, even
though they may not realize
it, was to make sure their
children were in school and
on. time.
Our paraprofessionals at
SHE did their part in helping


I-I

the children learn. They
worked diligently to help the
children learn. Their efforts
are so much appreciated for
they are so active in the
teaching process at SHE.
You know, I just cannot
leave anyone out: bus dri-
vers, secretaries, cafeteria
workers, everyone, made a
contribution to help the chil-
dren in one way or another.
It may have been through
encouragement, tutoring,
providing a good meal, a
clean environment, or per-
haps something that I have
not even considered at this,
point.
Here is what I do know; it
was a school community ef-;
fort to get to this grade. To
make an "A" is really a big
deal. It is difficult to achieve
and the next year you have
to do even better to stay
there. It takes a great effort
by all stakeholders. But you,
know what, I'll bet the effort
will be there next year and it
will be even more intense.
Rarely do you become
such' a winner overnight.
You reach that point through
extended periods of plan-,
,nig, practice, .slips, trips,
pains, and gains. Johnny
Bullard has been the princi-
pal here for a number of
years and he, too, is to be
congratulated for laying the
ground work .for this
achievement.
The district office staff
must be recognized for their
efforts. They have provided
curriculum support, technol-
ogy, professional develop-
ment, encouragement, and
loads of other "stuff" that
has helped the schools in this
county succeed.
I hope I have not missed
anyone but if I have, I'm sor-
ry, and I promise that I will
get you on the next round.
Now, go pat you kid on
the back and tell him/her,
"Great job, I'm proud of
you!"

Ben Wicker said.

in some areas and several im-
provements, cosmetically in-

painting the inside and also the
wood deck. Well-known local
artist Linda DellaPoali,famous
for her North Florida Nature

throughout the restaurant. New

The technology of the restau-

Roy's Restaurant is posi-

Hungry Howie's Pizza & Subs: Now open


Hungry Howie's Pizza &
Subs, owned and operated by
Food Management Concepts
Corporation, reached a mile-
stone in 2004 and 2005.
With four existing locations
in 2004, this franchise has
grown to seven locations and
eight additional slated to open
in late 2005.
Ryan Bell, a life-long resi-
dent of Chiefland and success-
ful restaurateur, decided to ex-
pand his business ventures at
the age of 25. He chose a piz-
za franchise to broaden his
horizon, Hungry Howie's Piz-

Bell built the first location
in Chiefland in 2000. Located
in the Winn-Dixie Plaza, this

and thought this small town
would be a great location for a
Hungry Howie's. "I've been
coming to Steinhatchee since I
was a kid and can't believe
how much it has grown," said
Bell. Scouting the area, he
found a perfect location right
on the water. How great it
would be to have a pizza place
you can come to by boat or car,
he thought. Renovations on a
historical building began when
Ryan worked with Jim Cot-

"Skydrifting"


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
The heat and humidity were
oppressing. After six hours of
enduring a hot Florida sum-
mer day on the water, we fi-
nally got to the 'heat' of the
day and the little wind that
was blowing vanished into the
thick wet air surrounding the
boat. There wasn't a breath of
air. All was still. The air did-
n't move. The water didn't
move. We didn't move. Qui-
etly we took the solar beating.
I looked off the boat to the
horizon to find there wasn't
one. There was a seamless
blend from water to air. The
Gulf was pacific, mirroring
cotton ball clouds with such
purity of definition that, with
eyes wide open, one would
easily think they were floating
with the clouds. An effortless
world with no gravity I called
'skydrifting.' Physical condi-
tions lined up in such an un-
usual manner, for a brief time,
that I was fortunate enough to
pay attention so to take a
metaphysical jellyfish ride in
the open atmosphere. It's fun
to let the mind wander' off
course at times. Some people
refer to it as heat stroke.
Whatever, it was cool'being a
jellyfish for a moment.


Hopefully, that was a hu-
morous end-run around the
point I wanted to make. The
point is... sometimes it is good
to physically or mentally take
a step back from where to find
yourself, a sweltering hot day
on a boat, for example, and
take a loose observation or
two. I took a few minutes to
skydrift, while at the same
time, others thought about the
heat issue. Sometimes it is
.healthy to step out to the bat-
ters box, take a couple prac-
tice swings on personal time
before resuming the grind of
the moment. Oops, I was,
somewhat, coloring outside of
the'lines of fishing.
Scallops don't seem to be a
problem based on chit chat
and watching folks shucking
out the booty at the dock. I'm
looking forward to going out
and collecting myself the
makings of a scallop pizza!
Just tiy it. My wife, Gina, slid
a couple of scallop pizzas
across the dinning room table
late (operative word being too
late) in the season last year
which were so extraordinarily
delicious that 1 had to excuse
my lack of manners, indecent
oinks and refrain from poach-
ing to get more scallop pizza.
Scallops are so mild in fla-


vor they can be used in a vari-
ety of recipes and make any
dish special. But you have to
shuck them to eat them. One
answer: Pay someone to do it
for you. Charge: $6/lb. The
women in Steinhatchee do a
wonderful, professional job to
provide you with the sweetest
little bay scallop you'll ever
put in your mouth. Answer
two: Gang tackle the shucking
detail but be aware someone
will blurt out "It was fun col-
lecting them but this part ain't
no fun." Answer to
that...'Shutup and shuck!'
Take time to notice what
your invited guests are doing
during the day. You will no-
tice some 'guest' throwing
themselves into the collecting
(fun), fading away from the
cleaning (work), and being
heavily evolved in the eating
(fun). Cancel the lazy peo-
ple's invite ticket to scallop
world and enjoy the friends
that participated in the whole
adventure with you. Wear a T-
shirt: "If you don't shuck you
suck" to get the point across.
I don't like to think of the
number of times I thought this
as someone meandered off:
"I could use a shower, too."
Or... "It's not rocket science to
clean a scallop or fish. What


better time to teach you than
now? Oh, I'm sorry, I took
what you said about wanting
to know how to do it sincere-
ly, now I realize it was just
verbal diarrhea said to make
you feel good about shirking
your responsibility off on me
and others so you can go to
comfort yourself while the rest
of us apparent grunts are ful-
filling the cleaning detail until
we can get cleaned up our-
selves. I guess you're special.
We're not. Am I bitter?' No.
I just realized there is more to
shuck .off than the scallop.
Pick people to go with that
will 'share' the entire day.
Many hands make... less
work.
Anyway, scalloping can be
so much fun. A fantastic day
on the water for all that take
the time to do it. My good-
ness, the things you see when
you stick your head below wa-
ter line. You come up with a
handful of scallops with a
head full of questions. What
was that? Plant or animal? I
determined a relationship be-
tween this and that. Did you
see...? I touched... It touched
me. You'll be touched with
the handy work of God if you
think while you stick your
head below water. Our grass


flats are a covered canvas dis-
playing a private art work far
more vivid and interactive
than any museum, global.
Grouper fishing in July is
great! We've caught keeper
grouper in 40' to 102' this
week. The bait... frozen bait is
just as good as anything. I've
had a tank full of live of pin-
fish and guys were just pin-
ning dead baits to whack
grouper as fast as we could
handle the up keep. It's a hard
bottom play land for the mo-
bile fishermen. With the sea
being calm during the sum-
mer, it is a good time to avoid
the anchor and do some float
time. Why work? Just fish.

about
Steinhatchee
Overview,
please contact
Joel Turner at th


Float and catch or float and
go. Take advantage of the
summer Florida high pressure
system and don't bother with
the anchor.
Trout fishing is best on the
deep grass flats popping shin-
er tails above the blades. Ear-
ly morning and late evening
are fantastic for topwater ac-
tion toward the banks. Expect
to encounter scallopers during
your inshore fishing adven-
ture. Be patient and exercise
good boat manners even dur-
ing times you don't want to.
Take care of yourself, fami-
ly and tackle.

Keep your eyes healthy with proper nutrition


Eating properly is not only good for your overall health; it's also
good for your eyes, especially as you age. It's a known fact that as you
grow older, your metabolism slows down and your body begins to
deteriorate at a faster pace. You notice that your skin isn't as firm and
tight as it used to be and you may lose muscle mass. Another
symptom of aging can be diminishing eyesight, such as macular
degeneration (AMD) the leading cause of vision loss and blindness
in Americans aged 65 and older, according to the American Dietetic
Association. (AMD is a degenerative condition of the macula, which is
the part of the retina responsible for the sharp, central vision needed
to read or drive.)
But just as you eat nutritious foods to stay healthy, and exercise to
keep fit and slow down the aging process, you can also consume
certain vitamins and nutrients that researchers have found to nourish
and protect the health of your eyes.
Following is a breakdown of some of those findings.
1. Antioxidants and zinc reduce the risk of AMD. High levels of
antioxidants (substances that inhibit oxidation and can guard the body
from the damaging effects of free radicals) and zinc play a role in
reducing the risk of developing AMD and its associated vision loss,
according to the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a major
clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute. Sources of zinc
include: oysters, hamburgers, wheat, and nuts.
2. Fruits reduce your risk of AMD. A study from the Channing
Laboratory at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's
Hospital (BWH) indicates that people who eat a daily diet that includes
several servings of fruit can reduce their risk of developing macular
degeneration as seniors. The study looked at a group of men and
women age 50 and older. It compared their intake of antioxidant
vitamins and carotenoids (like beta carotene) as well as fruits and
vegetables, and how these elements relate to the development of
macular degeneration. Researchers discovered that people who
consumed three or more servings of fruit per day over a period of 12
to 18 years reduced their risk of developing macular degeneration by
more than 30 percent, compared to people who ate 1.5 servings per
day or fewer.
3. Vitamin A reduces night blindness. A diet lacking in vitamin A
can cause night blindness, a deterioration of light sensitive-cells (rods)
essential for vision in low lighting. This deficiency also can extensively
damage the eye's cornea to create total blindness. Research
conducted by ophthalmologist Alfred Sommer, M.D., linked a vitamin
A (retinoll deficiency to the very high prevalence of night blindness in
children of developing countries such as India and Bangladesh.
Sommer found that night blindness decreased by one-third in children
who received vitamin A. Sources of vitamin A include: cod liver oil,
liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Note: while
vitamin A supplementation can be beneficial, it can also be toxic if
taken at abnormally high dosages. Consult with a doctor before using.

4. Omega 3 fats decrease dry eye symptoms. Dry eye syndrome
is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye.
According to a recent study conducted by BWH and Schepens Eye
Research Institute (SERI), women who consumed at least five
servings of tuna (which contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids)
weekly, reduced their dry eye symptoms by 68 percent, compared with
women who ate only one serving of tuna weekly. Decreased dry eye
symptoms appear related to the presence of omega 3 fatty acids
commonly found in certain fish and sources such as nuts. The study
also found that women with the highest levels of omega 3 fatty acids in
their diet had 20 percent fewer dry eye symptoms than women who
consumed the least amount of omega 3 fatty acids. Other fatty acid
sources include: cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, and trout.
5. Vitamins E and C slow cataract growth. Results from the
Nurses' Health Study conducted at the Tufts University USDA Human
Nutrition Research Center on Aging, demonstrate that
supplementation with vitamins E and C may offer significant protection
against the development of cataracts. Vitamin E sources include:
sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachio nuts,
avocados, peanuts, and nut products such as oils and butters, eggs
(one egg can provide almost 6 percent of the recommended daily
amounts of vitamin E), greens, tomatoes, asparagus, and sweet
potatoes. Sources of vitamin C include: fruits such as guava, oranges,
grapefruit, melons, grapes, berries, and fruit juices; vegetables such as
peppers, brussel sprouts, potatoes, broccoli, beans, onions, tomatoes,
and squash; meat such as liver and organ meats; and some seafood
and fish.
6. Choose carrots for healthier vision. Carrots contain beta-
carotene, a pre-cursor for making vitamin A. This form of vitamin A is
needed to boost the immune system function and also to improve
vision. Carrots also contain carotenoids, which are found in their
orange pigment. Some carotenoids like zeaxanthin and lutein are
important for preventing cataracts and macular degeneration. Besides
carrots, lutein and zeaxanthin sources include: spinach, kale and
collard greens.


7. Eggs aid eye health. A study conducted by the Tufts Universi)
Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston found th
extra lutein can be obtained from eggs. The study tracked and
compared the amount of lutein absorbed by 10 subjects who
consumed nutritional supplements, spinach, and enriched eggs froi
chickens fed diets high in lutein. The results showed that enriched e
increased the level of lutein in the subjects on average two times
greater than spinach, and three times greaterthan lutein suppleme
or lutein ester supplements. ...... -
The bottom line? If you want to keep your eyes in tip-top shape, i
general, you should eat plenty of green, leafy vegetables, two servi
of fish per week, some nuts and some yellow or orange fruits and
vegetables. That's a recommendation from AllAboutVision.com, an
online resource for eye health and vision correction options.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS JUNE 28-29, 2006, PAGE 11C


Students make


Students on summer break often
have more leisure time and less adult
supervision than they do during the
school year. Consequently, they will
choose many of their own meals and
snacks. If these snacks are low in nu-
trition and fiber-and high in salt, sug-
ar, and fats-they can contribute to the
growing problem of childhood obesi-
ty.
For the second year, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services conducted its "Xtreme
Cuisine Cooking School," teaching
Florida students how to make their
own healthy snacks using "Fresh from
'Florida" fruits and vegetables, whole
grains, lean meats, and other nourish-
ing recipe ingredients. Classes were
held during April and May-tradition-
ally the last months of the school
year-at middle schools in Naples, Mi-
ami, Orlando and Tallahassee.
Department Chef Tom Thomas, a
30-year foodservice veteran, taught
students the basics of food prepara-
tion and cooking procedures while
creating fruit parfaits, whole-wheat
pizzas, and other easy-to-prepare
snacks.
A sponsorship from the Florida De-
partment of Citrus provided "Xtreme
Cuisine" curriculum outlining nutri-
tion basics. Students learned how the
Florida fruit and vegetables used in
these recipes provide vitamins and
minerals that can help prevent heart
disease and other obesity-related ill-
nesses. In addition, students learned
the dangers caused by excessive
amounts of salt, sugar, anidfts in their
diet, and how fiber could eliminate
their desire for high-calorie, low-nu-
trition snack .foods. Each "Xtreme
Cuisine" curriculum packet contained
four original recipes with nutritional
breakdowns.
"Older children are frequently mak-
ing many of their own food choices,"
said Florida Agriculture Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson. "We want
these to be healthy choices that will
last these young Floridians through
adulthood."
By the end of each session, students
had" learned how many calories they
need each day. Each student received
a copy of the "Fresh from Florida
Kids' Kitchen" cookbook, which out-
lines many cooking basics. Students
also received "Xtreme Cuisine" cer-
tificates attesting to their skill in the
preparation of healthy snacks.
Teachers, parents, and children are,
encouraged to visit www.Fresh-From-
Florida.org for more information
about nutrition and fresh Florida fruits,
and vegetables. Below are the kid-


friendly recipes from the "Xtreme
Cuisine Cooking School."
