County, City discussing


new interlocal agreement for


fire protection services


Jasper
City Man- "W D
ager Kent
Cichon and -
the Hamilton
County Corn- .
missioners met X
on Tuesday. --
Aug. 21, to id-
cuss the interlocal
agreement for tire
control services pro- "
vided by the City in unin-
corporated areas ot the
County. The current con-
tract expired on Aug. 12,
but the City granted the
County a 30-day extension.
The county is divided into
six districts with the Jasper
District being the largest.
The County pays a set
amount to each fire depart-
ment to answer calls in their
district and to assist other
districts as needed.
The County pays the City
of Jasper $30,000 annually,
in addition to $150 per call,
to provide fire services out-
side the municipality.
Hamilton County Clerk of


Court Greg Godwin said the
County paid. the City ap-
proximately $50,000 last
year.
According to Cichon, that
is not enough to pay for the
calls the City has made for
the County. He said that the
records show that of the 740
calls the City answered last
year, 387 or 66% of the calls
were outside the municipal-
ity. He noted that the total
expenses for the City for fire
services were $185,795 last
year, of which $122,625 was
for calls outside the munici-


pality.
Negotiations
began in July
when Cichon sent
a letter to the
Board of County
Commissioners
(BOCC) re-
questing ap-
proval of a
; new inter-
local agree-
ment, in
which the
County
would pay the City
$74,000 annually for up to
148 calls and pay $182 per
call for any extra calls.
The Board then asked for
a meeting with the Jasper
City Council to discuss the
services that the County and
the City provide for each
other. The City Council re-
fused to meet with the
Board, but Cichon agreed to
meet with them to continue
negotiations.
The County offered a

Randy Ogburn seeks re-election

for County Commissioner District 4


Randy Ogborn
Citizens and voters of
District 4, I wish to an-
nounce my candidacy
for re-election as your
County Commissioner
for the district. I have
had the honor of repre-
senting Hamilton Coun-
ty and this district for
the past 13 years.
As a member of our


community, and a busi-
. ness owner, I am aware
of the problems that
face our county, district
and region. During my
tenure as county com-
missioner, I have
worked with the other
board members to im-
prove conditions in
Hamilton County and
to plan for the future.
SI believe in a clean
environment. I have
worked to strengthen
the county position on
environmental issues by
strengthening Hamilton
County's regulatory or-
dinances on all aspects
of industry. I believe in
planned arid controlled
growth.
The Board of County
Commissioners has ac-
tively participated in the


visionary process with
the citizens and adopted
the approved vision. We
want Hamilton County
to be a vibrant rural
county with improved
housing and commerce.
I believe in a diversi-
fied economic base. I
feel that eco-tourism is
an important sector of
our economic base and
is critical to White
Springs. I also believe
that we must have well-
regulated industry in
some form. The right
mix will continue to cre-
ate jobs, add value to
the tax role and secure
the future of our com-
munity.
We have partnered
with other agencies to

White Springs man


arrested, charged with


sexual battery


A White Springs
man has been ar-
rested and charged
with sexual battery
in Suwannee Coun-
ty. The man, Danny
Wendell Cooks, 42,
10250 Jackson
Danny Cooks Street, White
Springs, was also
charged with aggravated battery
and violation of an injunction.
According to the Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office (SCSO),
Cooks was located and arrested by
Sheriff's Corporal Scott Senea Aug.
10.
Cpl. Senea was dispatched to
Shands at Live Oak emergency
room Aug. 8 in reference to a bat-
tery. According to the SCSO he was


met there by Hamilton County
Deputy Pamela Allen who told Se-
nea she brought a victim to the hos-
pital after finding out that she had
been assaulted.
The alleged crime actually took
place in the Wellborn area, accord-
ing to the SCSO, but the victim is a
resident of Hamilton County, ac-
cording to the SCSO.
An order of protection had been
issued to the victim in Hamilton
County, and it was still in effect
when the alleged crime took place,
the SCSO said.
Cooks had an open warrant from
Pinellas County for him on failure
to appear on charges of grand theft
auto, according to the SCSO. The
bond on his Suwannee County
charges has been set at $51,000.


Tracy Moody announces

candidacy for District 5


School Boar
Voters
of
Hamilton
County:
My name
is Tracy
Moody. I
have
been an
Sestab-
lished
S resident
of
Tracy Moody Hamilton
County most of my life. My father is
Larry Turner and my mother is Deb-
bie Prine Wilson. My grandparents
are the late HG Turner and Marion
Turner, and Margaret Crews and the
late Bobby Prine.
I have been married to Gordon
"Willie" Moody Jr for 15 years. He is
the son of the late Gordon Moody Sr
and Verline Moody. I have three chil-
dren in the school system, Gabrielle
(ninth grade), Jared (eighth grade),
and Courtney (fifth grade), who have
all attended school in Hamilton
County since Pre-K. Two of my chil-


d member
dren have played softball, volleyball,
and baseball for Hamilton County
.High School (HCHS). In addition all
three have played for manyyears at
the Hamilton County Recreation De-
partment.
I am first and foremost a parent
that knows that we need to improve
our children's education. My family's
education and safety have always
came first, and Hamilton County,
you are a part of my family.
As I drove up to HCHS on Aug. 8,
to meet with my children's teachers, I
saw a big beautiful banner with a
train on it, that said, "All aboard, no
one gets left behind." My kids said,
"Mom, look that's cool." I told them,.'
"Yes, it is."
However, the message that we
leave no one behind made me feel
sad. My daughter, Courtney, is in the
fifth grade and she reads on a third
grade level. She should be in the sev-
enth grade. She has been left behind.
Also, I know of several other children
that are below grade level in reading

I asked why we do not

has partnered with other

have received over 10

county. We also receive

functions and other volun-
teer committees for what-
ever the children were in-
volved in, including the
Hamilton County Recre-
ation Center, Cub Scouts,
Daisy Scouts, and ROTC.
I know that our current
commissioners have some
companies that are coming
to our community, but I
know there have been
many in the past few years
that have wanted to come
here, but for whatever rea-
son decided to locate in our
neighboring counties.


portant grades. In addi-
tion, the School Board did
not put summer school for
other grades in the budget
for this year.
* Therefore, as I see it, the
only children that matter
are the ones that have to
pass the FCAT; all others
are being left behind.
However, I feel if we


would work on these stu-
dents at all the grade lev-
els, the entire time be-
tween the third and the
tenth grade, then maybe
we would not have to wor-
ry whether or they can
pass the tenth grade
FCAT.
I have many ideas to
help improve our schools:


reassigning summer school
for all. the grades; reward-
ing our students for im-
provement of their FCAT
scores and having perfect
attendance in school; and
giving the teachers back
the power to control the
kids in their classrooms.
My ideas may seem to
be simple; however, we


have to start somewhere.
When all the parents and
members of this communi-
ty come together and work
on all of our problems then
we will be able to get the
answers and find the solu-
tions to help our children.
So, on Sept. 5, when you
go to vote, think about that
train, and your child's ed-


ucation. Vote for Tracy
Moody for the office of
School Board Member Dis-
trict 5. So on Wednesday
morning, Sept. 6, we can
all look our children
straight in the eye and
proudly say, "All aboard,
all aboard."
Thank you, Tracy
Moody

counter proposal of
$40,000 annually in addi-
tion to $150 per call and
asked for a 90-day exten-
sion if the proposal was
not accepted.
During a meeting of the
County Commissioners on
Aug. 17, Henry Land,
Hamilton County Fire De-
partments Coordinator, re-
ported on his meeting with
Cichon the previous day.
According to Land, Cichon
agreed to a 30-day exten-
sion of the current agree-
ment. Land said they dis-
cussed the annual pay-
ment, the per call pay-
ments and the yearly cap
on how much the pay-
ments could increase each
year.
Land said they discussed
reducing the size of the.
Jasper District and divid-
ing the excess areas be-
tween other fire depart-
ments. He noted that he
did not feel that was in the
best interest of the people
because it would increase
the response time of the
fire departments for cer-
tain areas of the county.
During the meeting on
Tuesday, BOCC Chairman
Mike Adams offered the

City a new proposal on be-
half of the County of a flat
fee of $64,000 per year
with no per call fee.
Adams noted that it would
require less man hours and
paperwork, because Land
would not have to deter-
mine which calls are out-
side the municipality and
bill the County for them.
Cichon indicated that he
felt $64,000 was too low
and that an amount be-
tween $81,000 and $90,000
was more appropriate. He
expressed concerns that
during a stormy year, the
-expenses for the City could
be well over the $64,000.
County Commissioner
Lewis Vaughn said that if
the City presented the
Board with documentation
of such expenses, the
County would help them.
Adams agreed that he
would feel obligated to
help the City in that case.
He added that the Board
would discuss adding a
clause to the agreement
that the County would pay
for calls if they.exceeded a
certain number each year.
County Commissioner
Leon McGauley reminded
Cichon that the County
has provided and contin-
ues to provide other pay-
ments and services to the
City. He gave Cichon a list
of the payments and ser-
vices that have been pro-
vided overithe last five ',
years, including assistance
With road pax ing projects,
patching existing road-
ways and grading un-
paved roads.
The County obtained a
grant for a water tank, and
water and sewer lines to
the Industrial Park and the
1-75 / US 129 interchange.
After construction was
completed, the County
deeded the tank and lines
to the City, who now re-
ceives monthly payments
from customers who use.


the water and sewer. The
City also receives pay-
ments from customers
who live in the southwest
part of Vaughn's district
because the County used a
CDBG grant to provide
water and sewer in that
area.
The City pays the Coun-
ty $1,200 a year for dis-
patch services provided by
the County that are valued
at $77,000 for just the la-
bor. The County provides
IRC radio communications
to law enforcement officers
in the city, which cost
$12,745 in 2005. The Coun-
ty also provides housing
for City prisoners at no
charge.
Adams said that the
County might have to start
charging the City more for
dispatch and other ser-
vices. Cichon then indicat-
ed that the City might
charge the County more
for fire services.
Vice-Mayor Edna Bum-
ham stated that she was
not there to represent the
City Council, but to ob-
serve and report to the
Council. She said the in-
creased payments were
not being imposed by Ci-
chon or the Council, but
by the taxpayers because'
the people of Jasper have
said that the City is not
charging the County
enough for fire services.
"- "I ant to protect the cit-
izen. of Jasper and Hamil-
ton County," Burnham.
said. "I would feel bad if
someone's house burns
down. I don't want to see
that happen. "
County Commissioner
Randy Ogburn said that
the problem was not ,
caused by theCommis-
sioners and they were try-
ing to work it out.
"You need us and we
need you," Ogbumrn said.
"We should try to provide
the best services for both."
Adams asked Cichon if
the City would let the
County take over the fire .
services. Cichon said he
was not opposed to the
idea, but the Council
would have to vote on it.
Adams than asked if Ci-
chon would agree to a one
.or hto-year agreement. Ci-
chon replied that a four-
year agreement was the
shortest he would consider
and, if the County did es-
tablish a fire department
before the end of the
agreement, the agreement
could be amended.
The County Commis-
sioners will discuss the in-
terlocal agreement during
the Budget Meeting at 6
p.m. on Monday, Aug. 28,
in the Board Room at the
Hamilton County Court-
house in Jasper.
The City Council will
hold, their regular meeting

Dear Editor,;'~
I am constantly reading
and hearing about the acri-
mony and bickering be-
tween the Jasper City
Council and the Hamilton
County Commission. I can
not see how this can be
good for either the city or
the county. -The latest dis-
pute, over fire protection
services, could easily leave
some citizens (taxpayers)
without a fire truck when
-they need-it. What will be
next, no ambulance service
within the city because it's
a county service? Or will it
be no sheriffs' assistance for
the city police? .
As a taxpayer in both the
city and the county, I am
very concerned about the
threats of loss of service in
either area. I am also con-:

cemrned that apparently nei-
ther the. city nor the county
elected officials -have the in-
terests. of the citizens, first,
where they belong. All I
hear from either board is
excuses, not solutions. The
city has no tax base because
the county owns too much
property in the city limits..
The county has no money
even as property values
and tax assessments tripled
in the last year. Yet they
still fight constantly.
The business of govern-
ment, especially at the local
level, is supposed to be to
ensure services for its citi-
zens. Services such as fire
and police protection, wa-
ter, sewer, trash removal,
animal control, roads,
bridges and the like. That is
what we taxpayers thought
we paid for and certainly
what we expect. What we
seem to be getting is two
sets of elected officials act-
ing like little spoiled chil-
dren. If they can not have it
their, way then they will
take their services and
-leave the other to fend for
itself.
It fs past time for the
county and city to solve
their problems with each
other and start working to-
gether. Both say they want
growth and jobs. Who do
they expect will come in to
the county in the present at-
mosphere?
There is an election loom-
ing; While not all of the
commissioners are up for
election, enough are to
make a change if it is need-
ed. Maybe the time has
come to find people who
can get along with others. If
it is not who we have now
then maybe the citizens,
taxpaying ones who want
and need the services,
should take note and make
a change. In the meantime,
I for one, am tired of hear-
ing about fighting. Can't
the two commissions at
least try to work for the
good of all the citizens????
Robert Clark,
Jasper

How to bounce back


from adversity


By Bryan Golden
Adversity is an unavoid-
able part of life. Death of a
loved one, breakup of a re-
lationship, malicious action
by another, job loss, natural
disaster, or any other unde-
sirable event, are all cir-
cumstances people en-
counter. Events happen
that are beyond our control.
Successfully bouncing
back from adversity is es-
sential for a healthy life.
Overcoming adversity.
builds mental strength,
character, and endurance.
You develop in ways that
would not otherwise be
possible.
You have control over
your reaction to adversity.
You have been conditioned
by how others respond to
unpleasant circumstances.
However, most people
aren't a good role model for
effectively dealing with ad-
versity.
Channeling your energy
into positive action is one of
the best cures for being dis-
heartened. For example,. if.
you've lost a job, immedi-
ately begin the, process of
getting another one. No
matter how bad unemploy-
ment is,, the odds are al-
ways weighted heavily in
your favor. Even if the un-


employment rate was an as-
tronomical 15% you have
an 85% chance of finding a
job.
If a- relationship has end-
ed without any chance of'
reconciliation, take comfort
in the fact that there are nu-
merous people in the same
boat. Get out, circulate, and
meet people. If you've
made a bad decision and
are unhappy with your cir-
cumstances, resolve to
change direction. Effecting
a correction can be difficult,
but persisting in an unhap-
py state is torture.
- Everyone encounters ad-
versity. No one is ever sin-
gled out. No one knows
why some things happen,
they just do. Some decide to
regain their footing, catch
their breath, and keep

walking forward. Others
choose to give up. Each
time you bounce back from
adversity, you get stronger
and wiser and can teach
others by example how to
do it also. Adversity is
overcome by moving for-
ward.

velopment and motivation-
al expert, author, and ad-

Butler Family Reunion

The month of July was full of anticipation for many
as the countdown-began until everyone could convene
in Atlanta for the Butler Family Reunion. Hundreds
traveled from as far away as California, Michigan. and
as close as Jasper, to celebrate a common heritage and
a proud past.
The Akins family from Jasper made the journey to
share memories with those that were familiar to them
and to embrace newly acquainted farmly members.
Twin sisters Sarah and Mary Akins, younger sibling
Eva Akins-Davis, Alisa Paul, Lenora Akins, and Regi-
nald Akins were not in attendance.
All that gathered could feel the deep connection that
bound them together, and shared in the spiritual re-
vival of Mega Fest hosted by Bishop TD Jakes. The re-
uniruon culminated in a banquet that included accounts
of lineage within the Butler family and a historical
narrative by a local Atlanta writer, who spoke as Louis
Butler.
The Butler family can trace their roots back to the
docks of Savannah, Ga., and a slave ship named "The
Wanderer." On this ship were Tempe Butler (born Jan.
1834) and Louis Butler (born Jan. 1822), the great-
grandparents of Elnora Akins who was a lifelong res-
ident of Jasper until her death in 1993..
The Butler family made plans to meet in 2008 in Sa-
vannah, the city that began their history in the United
States.

Talk to your doctor before taking Tylenol Meet the Teacher at Central Hamilton


Submitted by Gayle
Bryan, Program Coordina-
tor Hamilton County Phar-
macy Assistance Program
In a recent clinical study,
the highest recommended
dose of Extra Strength
Tylenol sharply increased
liver enzymes, an early
sign of possible organ
damage in healthy adults.
Although overdoses of
Tylenol have been found to
harm the liver, the study
published in the Journal of
the American Medical As-
sociation is the first to spot
hints of trouble in healthy
people taking the pain re-
liever as directed.
"This study shows that
even taking the amount on
the package can be a prob-
lem for some people," said
Dr. William M. Lee of the
University Of Texas South-
western Medical Center,
who was not involved in
the research.
Tylenol is the leading
brand of acetaminophen,
which is found in more
than 200 types of pain re-
lievers and cold remedies.
An estimated 100 million
Americans take aceta-
minophen safely each year.
Still, the over-the-
counter drug is the leading.
cause of acute liver failure
in the US., and some re-
searchers have called for
increased regulation to
prevent overdoses. In Eng-
land, concerns about sui-
cide attempts with aceta-
minophen led to restric-
tions on how many pills


could be sold at a tinre.
Lee said the latest! study
showed the maximum
dose of Tylenol was too
high. The maximum dose
is four grams daily 6r two
500 milligram pills every
six hours. i
"I think this study re-
minds us of what we al-
ready know: that you
should stop at the four-
gram dose and not take
more than you need," Dr.
Paul B. Watkins of the Uni-
versity of North Carolina
Chapel Hill. He said he
was planning other studies
to see whether patients' liv-
ers became accustomed to
acetaminophen over time
and he noted that m4ny el-
derly arthritis patients took
high doses of Tylerol for
long periods without liver
injury.
McNeil ConSumer
Healthcare, the unit of
Johnson & Johnsor, that'
markets Tylenol, said
Tylenol was safe to 'use as
directed and that high en-
zyme levels did not indi-
cate liver damage in the ab-
sence of other symptoms.
The Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram coordinator advises
anyone that has anyihisto-
ry of kidney or livdr dis-
ease to talk to their doctor.
Do not take Tylenol if you
drink more than three alco-
holic beverages per day or
if you have had alcoholic
liver disease without talk-
ing to your doctor first. If
you are pregnant or l reast-


feeding talk to your doctor
before taking Tylenol.
The Hamilton County
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
gram's scheduled hours
are Monday, Wednesday
and Friday from 8:15 a.m.
until 3:30 p.m., closing
from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The program coordinator
will be at the Jennings Li-
brary on the second and
fourth Tuesday of the
month and at the White
Springs Library on the first
and third Thursday the
month. The library hours
are from 10 a.m. until 11:45
a.m.. No appointment is
needed during these hours.
Other hours are available;
however one must call for
an appointment.
The program is funded
by a grant from The Blue
Foundation for a Healthy
Florida, Inc., with addition-
al funding from Hamilton
County and the cities of
Jasper and Jennings. The
pharmacy program pro-
vides assistance with find-
ing programs for free or re-
duced price medication
and making application to
them. The assistance is free
of charge.
The program is located at
204 Northeast 1st Street, in
the Sandlin building. The
office telephone number is
792-2143. There is no
charge for the program's
services and it is open to all
Hamilton County resi-
dents. Donations to the
program are accepted.

Holly Goodin participates in International Finals Youth Rodeo


Holly Goodin and Lady traveled to
Shawnee, Okla., to compete as a member of
the Georgia-Florida Youth Rodeo Associa-
tion (GFYRA) on the Gatordawg team, in
the International Finals Youth Rodeo in July.
There were 988 high school contestants
from all over the United States competing. It
was a fun-filled week of rodeo morning
and night performances Monday thru Fri-
day with finals on Saturday. You could win
a jackpot all night if you wanted to.
Holly had a great time and met some very
nice people. She placed in the top 40 out of
250 girls in pole bending. The Gatordawg
team came in 10th out of 32 teams. She had


four clean runs with no barrels or poles
down, so we were pleased. It was a great ex-
perience and she hopes to qualify again next
year.
Holly would like to thank her sponsors,
friends and family and her church family for
the prayers, money and support that they all
so generously gave her.
A special thanks goes out to Aunt Sylvia,
Nanny and Papa,, Uncle Trammel, Aunt
Laura,. Ron and Vickey, Ratliff and Associ-
ates, Lee and Associates, Janice, David
Goolsby, Greg Godwin, Doug Whitaker,
Hamilton County Riding Club, David

gate to the conference from the White Springs United Methodist congregation, gave sev-
eral of the bags to White Springs Police Chief Joe Subic to distribute at South Hamilton
Elementary School. Alley said that stuffing the backpacks is an annual activity during
conference that everyone enjoys because they know their efforts will benefit the school
children of Florida. Photo Submitted,

"Howdy, Partner!" When
you walk around our cam-
pus, you'll see an interest-
ing array of western items,.
since our AR theme this
year is "Rounding Up
Good Readers"! Western
hats, boots, bales of hay,
horses, ropes, and a life-
size poster of John Wayne
are. just a few of the, eye-
catching decorations.
New faces and familiar
faces in different places this
year include Mrs. Erica Mc-
Coy in third grade, Mrs.


Lisa Jarvis in fifth grade,
Mrs. Tammy Atkinson in
third grade, Mrs. Angela
Boatwright. in kinder-
garten, Mrs. Donna Dillard
in fourth grade, Ms. 'Trixie
Newsome in second grade,
Mrs. Beth Burnam as read-
ing coach, and Mrs. Lee
Wetherington-Zamora as
guidance counselor / ad-
ministrative assistant.
Kindergartners have got-
ten off to a great start with
two big books, "Mary Wore
Her Red Dress" and "The
Wheels on the Bus." They
j7


are busy learning letters,
numbers, colors, shapes,
and names.
Mrs. Driggers' second
graders did an author
study of Norman Bridwell,
who wrote the Clifford
books. They watched a
video about Mr. Bridwell,
read Clifford books, drew
Clifford pictures, and
wrote about this in their
journals.. They learned
some interesting facts, in-
cluding that the only rea-
son Clifford is red is be-
cause that was the color of
paint on Mr. Bridwell's
desk when it came time to
color him, that the name
"Clifford" came from his
wife's imaginary childhood
friend, and that Emily Eliz-
abeth (Clifford's owner) is
his daughter's name. At
North Hamilton Elemen-
tary, hands-on activities
like this are one way "we
are changing lives through
quality education."

By Johnny Bullard


It is hard to believe
that the month of August
will soon be behind us,
and, at this writing, in
exactly one month, we
will have our first official
day of fall. I saw some
goldenrod blooming on
Saturday which, is, for
many in our area, the
first herald of the ap-
proaching fall season. I
don't know about the
feelings of my readers
but, I, for one, am ready
for a little bit cooler
weather. I especially
love the evenings during
the fall when there is just
a little "nip" in the air.
Keep your fans and air
conditioners on for now,
though, as our hot
weather will be with us
for while.
Speaking of, fall, I
shared lunch with Janet
Moses and Gena Stone
on Friday at the Telford
Hotel. Janet is busily
preparing fall themes
Folk Art projects. She re-
lated to us that she
would be going to, a fall
open house in Mount
Dora, on Aug. 19, and
that she was very excited
about it. Fall is a magical
time in Janet's shop.
More magical to me,
since fall is my very fa-
vorite season of the year.
I love the colors, every-
thing about the fall of
year..
The Nature and. Her-
itage Tourism Center
and the Town of White
Springs will host their
annual Han-r\ eit .,. .ti\1l
on .Sattrday," Nov. 4.
Mark your calendars for
a weekend of arts, crafts,
regional foods, etc.. For
more information about
this event, call Mitzi Nel-
son at 397-2733.
The Hamilton County
Democratic Party hosted
a political speaking at
Crossroads Volunteer
Fire Department on, Sat-
urday, Aug. 19, begin-
ning at 6 p.m., and the
Hamilton County Re-
publican Party hosted a
political forum on Sun-
day, Aug. 20, at the Civic
Center. Both political
parties are to be com-
mended for making
,these forums available
for the voters. Don't for-
get that early voting be-
gan Aug. 21, at the Su-
pervisor of Elections Of-
fice and will extend
through .the time of the
Sept; 5 Primary.
Speaking of. the up-
coming election, I want
to take this opportunity
to express my apprecia-
tion to the following can-
didates for state-wide of-
fice. who took the time
from their -busy sched-
ulesto visit us and spend
a little time with us here
in Hamilton County -
United States Senator
Bill Nelson, one of his
Republican opponents,
Congresswoman Kather-
ine Harris, Democratic
Gubernatorial candidate,
Jim Davis, and Democra-
tic candidate Alex Sink,
candidate for Chief Fi-
nancial Officer for the
State of Florida. It means
Sa great deal when state-
wide candidates take
time from their busy
campaign schedules to
call on your county. At
least it lets 'you know
that they know where
you live and care enough
to visit.


Lee Lewis, Fernandina
Beach, was a weekend
guest of the' Bullard
Family over the week-


reported that she is
getting along well.
Doris' daughter,
Beulah, is a guidance
counselor in Milton,
and Beulah's hus-
band, Dr. Jonathan
Fountain, has a fam-
ily medical practice.
Both of Beulah's
d au g ht e r s ,
Stephanie and
Michelle, are college
graduates. The Foun-
tains took both daugh-
ters on a two week vaca-
tion to Hawaii this past
summer to celebrate
their college graduations
and accomplishments. I
always enjoy hearing
from Doris. Both she and
Beulah were longtime
White Springs residents,
and we miss them.
Please remember the
following in prayer:
Wendell Wyhn, Glen-
wood Bennett, Virginia
Daniel, JM Morgan,
Franklin Fouraker, Mae
Tomlinson, Preston Stor-
mant, Jean Padgett,
Gladys "Granny" Ruh,
Lafayette McCall, Justin

Mae Johnson, Marie

Tommie Smith, Darlene

Live Oak, Melvin Shep-
pard, Lake City, our
state, our nation, and our
own Hamilton County.
Have a good week,
Hamilton County, I love
you.


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


The National Association
of County Office Employ-
ees, formerly ASCS, now
FSA, met in Cleveland,
Ohio the week of Aug. 10.
Billie Payne, Blair and
Mona Payne, and Jeff and
Kay Slocum were invited to
a presentation in memory of
Clyde Payne, who was in-
strumental in the formation
of the organization. Clyde's
life in NACOE, as well as
parts of life in the private
sector, was shown by way
of a CD. Blair Payne spoke
for the family and Fritz
Scarborough, former State
Director of ASCS in Geor-
gia, spoke as a friend. Much
was said by many of the ac-
complishments made be-
ginning with the year 1959.
This was a well-deserved
tribute to Clyde Payne, he
served his County as well
as others and we, too, are
thankful for his contribu-
tions in so many ways.
We have learned that
Mac's Repair and Towing
Inc. has been sold to JD
Daniels, who will be owner
and operator of the busi-
ness. Leon McGauley told
us that the name will re-
main the same, and the ser-
vice will continue. Gloria
said they haven't really re-
alized it yet, but are enjoy-
ing have a little time to re-
lax. He remains in the office
of County Commissioner
and we are sure he will be
busy.
Most people who retire
seem to get busier with oth-


T 0 WD
er things, sometimes having
trouble taking time to enjoy
the leisure that is supposed
to go along with retirement,
after so many years of
working. I am not sure how
long Mac's has been in busi-
ness and cannot find out at
this time (it is too late at
night) but it has been a
while; many of you may re-
member. We wish them a
happy retirement, and JD
success in his new business.
Of course the big thing
right now in Hamilton
County is the election. All
of a sudden it is here. I did
not know of the other fo-
rums, etc. (except the one I
attended at the VFW) in
time to get to them, but the
one Sunday afternoon at the
Civic Center, sponsored by
the Republican Party was
well attended and many of
the candidates turned out.
Jim Tompkins welcomed
the group, followed by the
invocation given by Rev.
Doug Hilliard, pastor of
First Presbyterian Church,
Jasper. Marsha Groll led the
Pledge of Allegiance to the
flag, following the posting
of the flags by members of
Boy Scouts Pack #153,
Jasper. Trey Norris sang the
Star Spangled Banner.
Jack Vinson served as
Master of Ceremonies. He
was introduced by Jim
Tompkins. Jack announced
that the Cub Scout Troop is
having a fund raiser auc-
tioning off cakes. made by
the Scouts and their Dads.


end of Aug. 18. Lee came
up for the seventh birth-
day celebration of his
daughter, Sarah Kather-
ine, in Lake City, held on
Saturday. As always, we
enjoy his visits with us
here "way down upon
the Suwannee River."
Bill, Laura, and Molly
K. Saunders, Dallas,
Tex., were all weekend
visitors at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Mark
Klinger (nee Leann
Brewer), Lake City, the
weekend of Aug. 18.
Folks were happy to
share a visit with Bill
and .Laura, but, in this
case, they took a "back-
seat" to the joy everyone
shared over seeing
young Molly K., their
daughter, born on April
14. I know everyone en-
joyed getting lots of
sweet "baby sugar".
Amber Robinson,
daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Frederick Robin-
son, White Springs, has
returned to the Universi-
ty of Florida,
Gainesville, for the fall
semester. We are all very
proud of Amber, and we
wish her well in her aca-
demic pursuits.
A very welcomed let-
ter from Doris Weaver,
Milton, this past week,

SReport T1o Parents
School Board Policy 4.01 establishes the Student Progress Plan for Hamilton District
Schools. The plan is comprehensive and in part relates to student performance standards,
promotion, retention and graduation requirements. The Student Progress Plan is avail-
able for review at the district office, on the school district web site
(www.firn.edu/schools/hamilton/hamilton), and at each school site. Student promo-
tion is based on evaluation of student achievement in terms of appropriate instructional
goals. Grade promotion is categorized K-6, 7-8, and 9-12:
K-6 Promotion: Shall include passing grades in at least four subjects to include read-
ing/language arts and mathematics. Mandatory retention is exercised at grade 3 if a stu-
dent's reading proficiency is not Level 2 or above. Students may be exempt from grade
3 retention with specified "good cause" reasons.
7-8 Promotion: Shall include passing grades in at least four subjects, two of which shall
be language arts and mathematics and one which shall be either science or social stud-
ies.
The final promotion decision for students in grades K-8 (with the exception of grade 3)
rests with the principal after evaluation of all pertinent educational records for the stu-
dent.
9-12 Promotion: Regular promotions occur at the end of the school year based on cred-
its earned and grade point averages (GPA):
Grade 8 to Grade 9: Promoted from grade 8 using criteria from above;
Grade 9 to Grade 10: Must have earned 5 credits and have a minimum GPA of 1.5;
Grade 10 to Grade 11: Must have earned 11 credits and have a minimum GPA of 1.75;
Grade 11 to Grade 12: Must have earned 17 credits and have a minimum GPA of 2.0
and a minimum of 2 credits in English, mathematics, science and social studies. The final
decision for promotion to grade 12 for those students who do not meet promotion crite-.
ria rests with the high school principal.

Study shows women


once-monthly Oste(


medicine over a onf


A new study shows the majority of women with
postmenopausal osteoporosis prefer a once-monthly
dosing regimen compared to a once-weekly.
"In my practice, active women look for an -,
osteoporosis medication that disrupts their routine less
often one that fits their busy lifestyle," said Ronald
Emkey, M.D., lead investigator of the study and
medical director of Radiant Research in Reading, Pa.
"This makes a once-monthly regimen an important
dosing option."'
The study was presented at the 27th Annual Meeting
of the American Society for Bone and Mineral
Research and included 342 women with
postmenopausal osteoporosis who took once-monthly
oral Boniva (ibandronate sodium) and once-weekly
oral alendronate (70 mg) each for three consecutive
months. The efficacy of the two treatments was not
assessed in the study.
In March, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
approved Boniva 150 mg as the first and only once-a-
month prescription treatment for postmenopausal
osteoporosis. Boniva is co-promoted by Roche and
GlaxoSmithKline.
Osteoporosis and low bone mass (osteopenia) are
becoming more prevalent in the U.S. today, as the
number of postmenopausal women continues to rise.
In the U.S. today, 10 million individuals, eight million
of whom are women, are estimated to already have
osteoporosis, and almost 34 million more are'
estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at
increased risk for -the disease. By 2010, osteoporosis
and low bone mass are expected to affect an estimated
52 million Americans age 50 and older.

Madison County's John


wins&

On Tuesday evening, Aug.
1, the Florida Sheriffs Asso-
ciation presented one if its
highest awards and honors
given by Sheriffs in Florida-
the Deputy Sheriff of the
Year-to Madison County
Deputy John Sleigher Jr.
Deputy Sleigher is originally
from Pennsylvania.
This award is reserved for
outstanding individuals who
have distinguished them-
selves through exemplary
performance of their duties.
.The job of the committee
selecting an individual to re-
ceive the award is not an easy
one, as numerous nomina-
tions are submitted from the
67 Sheriffs' offices for con-
sideration. Committee mem-
bers, made up of veteran law
enforcement; look for those
who serve the office of Sher-
iff with dedication and devo-
tion.
After hearing the story
about the actions of Deputy
Sleigher, which led his Sher-
iff to nominate him, they
agreed he was worthy of
recognition.
At the awards banquet,
held at the Daytona Beach
Hilton, Deputy Sleigher and
his family watched a video
re-enactment of the incident
that led to his nomination.
Then, before the audience of
500 Sheriffs, spouses and law
enforcement elite, Deputy
Sleigher received a hand-
some plaque and check for,
$1,000.
Read on for more about
Deputy Sleigher's heroic ac-
tions.
Domestic incident esca-
'lates
On the night of Oct., 5,
2005, Deputy Sleigher was
dispatched, teo assist in what
viwas reported to be a verbal
domestic in a rural neighbor-
hood of Madison County.
While en route, Deputy
Sleigher learned that the call
had escalated and the suspect
was now holding; a knife to
his victim's neck.
As he arrived at the ad-
dress,. Deputy Sleigher saw a,
white female holding a baby
in her arms and standing at
the end of the drie\a\N. She
told the deputy that her moth-
er's. boyfriend was inside and
he had been threatening her
mother. The' boy friend was
holding a butcher knife to her
mother's throat and said, he
wouldd kill her if he saw any
police.
The woman in the drive-


S


eigher Jr.


Deputy Sheriff of the Year 2006


way said she had not heard
her mother's voice for some
time and assumed he had
stabbed her. Then she added,
"You're probably going to
have to shoot him."
Deputy Sleigher drew his
.40 caliber Beretta pistol and
prepared to enter a door on
the double wide home. He
said his thought was that if
the suspect had already killed
the victim, then the man
might be waiting inside to
ambush law enforcement.
What happened next took
place only in a matter of
about 20 seconds, but as any
deputy will tell you, these
types of confrontations feel
like they last much longer.
The door that Deputy
Sleigher entered opened to
the living room. As he
stepped in, he heard a faint
cry coming from another
room and moved toward it.
At the opening of the kitchen,.
he saw a white male strad-
dling a white female on the
floor, holding an 8-inch blade
on the left side of her neck.
The man's face was close to
hers, so they were chest-to-
chest.
Sleigher yelled for the man.
to drop the knife, but the sus-
pect held the knife closer and
indicated he planned to kill
the woman. Again, Sleigher
ordered him to put the knife
down, but the suspect made
eye contact with the deputy
and said, "Shoot me or she
dies."
Knowing he didn't have a
clear' shot, Sleigher moved
closer. and ordered the sus-
pect to put down the knife.
The man stared back at
Sleigher with a .crazed ex-
pression. He then let out a
type of war, cry and arched
back as if to get momentum
for a stabbing. motion. Now
with a clear shot, Deputy
Sleigher fired two rounds
into the suspect's right side,
below his armpit, but the bul-
lets didn't seem to faze the
man. Instead, he pulled back
more and kept the knife posi-
tioned in a stabbing motion.
Seeing that the suspect was
about to lash out, Deputy
Sleigher lunged forward to-
ward the knife, and grabbed
the victim's left bicep. He
pulled her out from under-
neath the suspect with one,
hand, while simultaneously
discharging another four
rounds ; into the suspect's
chest and upper torso. Incred-
ibly. all. the shots from


Deputy Sleigher's gun were
fired from an almost kneeling
position and all hit the sus-
pect.
The man collapsed and
rolled onto his back.
Now holding the victim
against his chest, Deputy
Sleigher pulled the woman
into the dining room and
checked her for injuries.
Amazingly, she had not been
stabbed or shot. He called
dispatch and advised, "shots
fired, suspect down, send
EMS."
Deputy Sleigher then es-
corted the victim out of the
house.
Violence, threats a pattern
Investigators following up
on the shooting were able to
paint a more complete pic-
ture of the incident. The vic-
tim and suspect had been dat-
ing for almost a year. A med-
ically diagnosed .paranoid
schizophrenic who refused' to
take his medication, the man
had a history of abuse in this
and previous relationships.
An ex girlfriend .reported
that, for a time, the suspect
'had been hard working and
supported their two children.
But he drank regularly and
threatened her. He had physi-
cally abused his own body by
cutting and burning himself.
And he once attempted sui-.
cide by cutting his wrist. He
-told his then-girlfriend that
he was afraid to commit sui-
cide because he thought he
would go to hell.
The relationship of the
suspect and his victim had
been rocky. The man had
been physically abusive to
the victim on numerous oc-
casions, convincing her to
quit her job of five years be-
cause of his paranoia that she
was cheating on him. They
moved frequently, following
his roofing jobs, but he be-
.came increasingly paranoid
and abusive. On several prior
occasions he had threatenedd
her with a knife to the throat.
She managed to get away
from him for two months,
but he eventually found her
and they moved in together.
The night of the incident,
the mother, daughter 'and
boyfriend had been drinking-
beer together and playing
cards. The suspect had con-
sumed about two. six packs
and the couple had started ar-
guing. He was accusing her
of infideliry and said he had
et idence that she had been
fooling around on him.

The woman was trying to
get her boyfriend to leave,
but the man's temper became
violent. He grabbed his vic-
tim by the back of the hair
and pinned her against the
counter, holding the knife to
her throat. The daughter tried
to intervene, but the suspect
pushed her out of the way
and said he would kill her
mother "as soon as the cops
get here." The 'daughter re-
trieved her infant from .the
bedroom and called 911. She
overheard the suspect saying


things. to her mother like,
"You are the last one I will
ever be with; there will be no
one else."
When the victim tried to
get away from her
boyfriend, they both landed
on the kitchen floor, .which
is when the suspect strad-
dled her and pinned her
down.
Training key to successful
response
It's clear from this story
that Madison County Sher-
iff's Deputy John Sleigher's


actions were the result of
training he's 'received in his
seven-year law enforcement
career-plus four years in the
military. Deputy Sleigher
credits this combination for
helping him prepare mental-
ly for the incident as well as
recover quickly following
the confrontation.
He says he is now using
what he's learned from this
and other critical incidents
to build a Sheriff's Office
Tactical Team in Madison
County.

VA receives 2006 Innovations in Government Award


The Department of Veterans
Affairs' (VA) model system of
electronic health records, de-
veloped with extensive in-
volvement of front-line
health-care providers, has won
the prestigious "Innovations
in American Government
Award." The annual award,
sponsored by Harvard Univer-
sity's Ash Institute for Demo-
cratic Governance and Inno-
vation at the Kennedy School
of Government and adminis-
tered in partnership with the
Council for Excellence in
Government, honors excel-
lence and creativity in the
public sector.
"This great honor is testi-
mony to the vision of health
care professionals throughout


VA," said the Honorable R.
James Nicholson, Secretary of
Veterans Affairs. "Our elec-
tronic health records are with-
out peer and ensure that our
nation's veterans receive the.
best care this country can pro-
vide."
While health-care costs in
the United States continue to
soar, VA is reducing costs and
errors while increasing safety
and efficiency.
Outside of VA, because pa-
tient records are not readily
available, -one out of seven
Americans ends up hospital-
ized when outpatient care is
all that's needed. For the same
reason,, one out of five lab
tests is needlessly repeated
outside the VA system. And


while the costs of health care
continue to soar for most
Americans, the VA is reducing
costs, reducing errors, and be-
coming the model for what
modem health care manage-
ment and delivery should look
like.
"The involvement of front-
line providers, use of perfor-
mance measures and universal
use of electronic health
records have enabled VA to set
the national benchmark in
quality of care" said Dr.
Jonathan Perlin, VA Under
Secretary for Health. "The
electronic records system is
called VistA, and it is an es-
sential part of VA's commit-
ment to giving every patient
safe, effective, efficient, com-


Forest Land Enhancement


Program sign-up underway


The Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services recently
announced a program that
will assist forest landowners
in the management of their
property. The department's
Division of Forestry will hold
a sign-up for enrollment in
the Forest Land Enhancement
Program (FLEP) through
Sept. 15.
The program, authorized
under the 2002 Farm Bill, is
available to non-industrial
private forest landowners on a
75-25 cost share basis for
most practices. Eligible prac-
tices include, but are not lim-
ited to: site preparation, tree
planting, and prescribed burn-
ing activities. Landowners
who own at least 10 acres but
no more that 10,000 acres of
land who have a multiple-re-
source practice plan will be
eligible to receive funding as-
sistance under FLEP. A maxi-


mum of $10,000 will be avail-
able for each qualifying
landowner over the life of the'
program as reimbursement
for incurred expenses for ap-
proved practices.
Almost half of the state's
14 million acres of forestland
is owned by private non-iin-
dustrial forest landowners.
According to national, re-
gional and statewide
landowner, surveys, most for-
est landowners don't have a
management plan for their
property. The state's alloca-
tion under the program will
be used for implementation of
forest practices prescribed in
existing or newly developed
management plans.
"It benefits everyone when
an approach stressing best
management practices is in
place for forested property,"
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commission-


er Charles H. Bronson
said. "The forests are a criti-
cal natural resource in Flori-
da, and it is important to pre-
serve them as well as mitigate
any 'potential wildfire dan-
ger."
Landowners can obtain ap-
plication forms from their lo-
cal Division of Forestry office
and from other cooperating
agencies. The Division of
Forestry's foresters will pro-
vide technical assistance to
landowners and will be the lo-
cal contact person for partici-
pating landowners. For more
information, contact David
Smith, Program Manager
850-414-9907 or Bonnie-
Stine, CFA Supervisor,s 850-
414-9912 both in Tallahassee,
or your local County Forester,

passionate health care."
VA's complete adoption of
electronic health records and
performance measures have
resulted in high-quality, low-
cost health care with high pa-
tient satisfaction. A recent
RAND study found that VA
outperforms all other sectors
of American health care across
a spectrum of 294 measures of
quality in disease prevention
and treatment. For six straight
years, VA has led private-sec-
tor health care in the indepen-,
dent American Customer Sat-
isfaction Index.
Electronic health records
also provide numerous other
benefits in cost, quality and
access to care. The cost of
maintaining the system is $80
per patient per year, less than
the cost of one unnecessarily
repeated lab test. In the last 10
years, VistA's efficiencies
have offset cost increases as-
sociated with a 100 percent in-
crease in the number of veter-
ans receiving VA care.


For example, VistA has
helped VA save 6,000 lives by
improving rates of pneumonia
vaccination among veterans
with emphysema, cutting
pneumonia hospitalizations in
half and reducing costs by $40
million per year. Patient wait-
ing times have declined while
customer service improved,
and access to care has in-
creased because of on-line
availability of health informa-
tion.
In addition to saving money,
VistA saves lives and ensures
continuity of care even under
the most extreme circum-
stances. Many of the thou-
sands of residents who fled the
Gulf Coast because of Hurri-
cane Katrina left behind vital
health records. Records for the
40,000 veterans in the area
were almost immediately
available to clinicians across
the country, even though the
VA Medical Center in Gulf-
port, Miss. was destroyed and
the New Orleans VA Medical


Center was closed and evacu-
ated. Veterans were able to re-
sume their treatments, refill
their prescriptions and get the
care they needed because their
medical records were immedi-
ately accessible to providers at
other VA facilities.
VistA is one of seven gov-
ernment initiatives chosen
from 1,000 applications to re-
ceive this year's Innovations
awards. Because the programs
are models for government's
capacity to do good; and do it
well, the $100,000 grant
specifically supports sharing
of program information with
other organizations.
VA plans to disseminate in-
formation and provide demon-
strations of VistA at its med-
ical centers across the country,
Additional information is
available .by visiting the web-
site www.innovations.va.gov,
calling 202-208-2393, sending
an e-mail message to innova-
tions@va.gov or contacting a

If stroke attacks, act FAST


The nation's emergency
physicians want to remind
Americans to act FAST if
they think they are or some-
one near them is having a
stroke, otherwise known as
a brain attack. Time lost is
brain lost: A one-minute de-
lay could cost you two mil-
lion brain cells. Knowing


stroke's symptoms and act-
ing fast can make the differ-
ence between life and death,
for you or someone you
know.
Remember the acronym
FAST for the most common
stroke symptoms:
F for Face: Weakness or a
drooping, crooked smile;


sudden loss of vision in one
or both eyes
A for Arms: Weak or
drooping arm
S for Speech: Slurred
speech, or inability to un-
derstand or be understood,
inability to speak
T for Time: Time = Brain.
Call 9-1-1 immediately.

Almost half of all stroke
patients arrive at the ER by
their own means. Dr. Ed-
ward C. Jauch, Associate
Director of Research in the
Department of Emergency
Medicine at the University
of Cincinnati College of
Medicine, strongly advises
against it. He says, "If you
or someone near you is ex-
hibiting any sign of stroke,
call 911: Transport by an
ambulance is best for get-
ting. to the ER. Patients ar-
riving by ambulance receive
faster evaluation by ER staff
and physicians, and undergo
CAT scans faster upon ar-
rival at the ER. In addition,
the EMS personnel can mo-
bilize resources-such as
CAT scan and Stroke
Teams-at the hospital ahead
of the patient's arrival. If
you arrive on foot, you may
lose precious time waiting
to be seen. Remember:
time=brain. "
' Stroke afflicts 700,000
people per year in this coun-
try, killing 157,000 of them.


Stroke is also a leading
cause of long-term disabili-
ty, and the longer you wait
to get help, the higher your
risk of permanent disability.
Stroke does not discrimi-
nate, and although some
people are at higher risk
than others due to lifestyle
and family history, anyone
can have a stroke. Treatable
risk factors include: hyper-
tension, diabetes, high cho-
lesterol and heart problems.
People often wait to see if
their symptoms will: go
away and unwittingly put
themselves in greater dan-
ger. Symptoms that last for
only a few minutes and then
subside may indicate a tran-
sient ischemic attack (TIA).
TIAs are serious medical
events and require treat-
ment; they are also a poten-
tial warning sign of more
dangerous stroke in the fu-
ture. Seeking medical care
'during a TIA may help
physicians prevent future
stroke
If you are having a stroke,


you may not be able to com-
municate what is happening
in order to get help. There-
fore it is essential that
everyone recognize the
symptoms of stroke. If
someone near you is experi-
encing stroke symptoms,
call 9-1-1 or your local
Emergency Medical Ser-
vices number FAST. You
could just save a life.

ical specialty society repre-
senting emergency medicine

regarding possible fraudulent
activity and send a strong
message that such abuse of
our citizens will not be toler-
ated."
Jose Manuel Soler and
Ariel L. Fernandez, of Coast
to Coast Public Adjusters, al-
legedly submitted approxi-
mately 75 forged contractor
agreements, resulting in an
overpayment by Citizens In-
surance of approximately
$314,596.54. Detectives said
an additional 29 such docu-
ments were submitted to the
Tower Hill Group resulting in
a loss of approximately
$125,281.81.
Detectives said the forged


contractor agreements were
submitted in order to obtain
an additional 20 percent of
the estimated claim for over-
head and profit. The fraudu-
lent contractor agreements
stemmed from real claims for
water pipe damage. Follow-
ing each storm in 2004 and
2005, the Department of Fi-
nancial Services capped pub-
lic adjusters fees that could
be charged to storm victims
and implemented a 14-day
period for victims, to rescind
public adjuster contracts
without a penalty.
Both Soler and Fernandez
surrendered on the charges
recently and were incarcerat-


brings

ed in the Miami-Dade County
Jail. Each was charged with
104 counts of insurance fraud
(third degree), 104 counts of
grand theft (third degree) and
one count of organized
scheme to defraud (first de-
gree) each. Bail was expected
to be set at $1,050,000. Addi-
tional arrests are anticipated.
The Department of Finan-,
cial Services, Division of In-
surance Fraud, investigates
fraud in all types of insur-
ance, including health, life,
auto, property and workers'
compensation. To report in-
formation about this case or
any other possible insurance
fraud case, call the depart-


arrests
ment's Fraud Fighters hotline
toll-free at 800-378-0445. A
reward of up to $25,000 may
be offered for information
leading to a conviction.

cer of the Florida Cabinet,
