Anne Hall and Sara McDaniel eagerly wait for the
plane to land carrying Angela Howell, who after more
than seven months in several hospitals across the
country, has returned "home" to the Rehabilitation Cen-
ter at South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta, Ga.
Howell has a rare disease called tracheomalacia that
cases the tissue of the trachea to soften. On July 26,
doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston,
Mass., rebuilt her trachea with a type of mesh in an ex-
perimental surgery. A month later, on Aug. 23, Howell
and her parents, Wayne and Shirley Smith, got off a
plane at the airport in Valdosta amidst a flurry of hugs
and tears from the group of family and friends who.
were awaiting her arrival. See more photos on page

Guidance

Why me Lord?


One day a teacher asked
her students to list the
names of the other students
in the room on two sheets of
paper, leaving a space be-
tween each name. Then she
told them to. think of the
nicest thing they could say
about each of their class-
mates and write it down. It
took the remainder of the
class period to finish their
assignment, and as the stu-
dents left the room, each
one.handed in the papers.
That Saturday, the
teacher wrote down the
name of each student on a
separate sheet of paper, and
listed what everyone else
had said about that indi'id-
ual. On Monday! she gave
each student his or her list.
Before long, the entire class
was smiling.
"Really?" she heard whis-
pered. "I never knew that I
meant anything to anyone!"
and, "I didn't know others
liked me so much," were


most of the comments. .
No ond ever mentioned
those papers in class again.
She never knew if they dis-
cussed them after class or
with their parents, but it
didn't matter. The exercise
had accomplished its pur-
pose. The students were
happy with themselves and
one another.
That group of students
moved on. Several years lat-
er, one of the students was
killed in Viet Nam arid his
teacher attended the funeral
of that special student. She
had never seen a service-
man.in a military coffin be-
fore. He looked -o ;hapch -
some, so- mature. The
church was'packed with his
friends. One by one those
who loved him took a last,
walk by the coffin. The
teacher was the last one to
stop at the'. coffin. As she
stood there, one of the sol-
* diers who, acted as pallbear-,
er came up to her.


"Were you Mark's math
teacher?" he asked. She
nodded: "yes." Then he
said: "Mark talked about
you a lot."
After the funeral, most
of Mark's former class-
mates went together to a
luncheon. Mark's mother
and father were there, ob-
viously waiting to. speak
with his teacher.
"We want to' show you
something," his father said,
taking a wallet out of his
pocket."They found this on
Mark when. he was killed.
We thought you might rec-
ognize it."
Opening the billfold, he
carefully removed two
worn pieces of notebook pa-
per that had obviously been
taped, folded and refolded
many times. The teacher
knew without looking that
the papers were the ones on
which she had listed all the
good things each of Mark's
classmates had -said- about.
him.
"Thank you so much for
doing that," Mark's mother
said."A' you can see, Mark
treasured it."
'All of Mark's former
clas.inates, started to gather
around. Chartlie smiled
rather sheepishly and said,


Going to the Polls by Herbert Lumpkin


I'm going to the polls and vote.

When I can go to the polls and ensure my

"I still have my list. It's in
the top drawer of my desk
at home."
Chuck's wife said,
"Chuck asked me to put his
in our wedding album.
"I have mine. too," Mari-
lyn said. "It's in my diary."
Then Vicki, another class-
mate, reached into her pock-
etbook, took out her wallet
and showed her worn and
frazzled list to the group. "I
.carry this with -me at all
times," Vicki said and with-
out batting an eyelash, she
continued, "I think we all
saved our lists."
That's when the teacher
finally sat down and dried.
She cried for Mark and for
all his friends who would
never see him, again. The
density of people in society,
is so thick that we forget
that life will end one day.
And we don't know when-
that day will be.
So please, tell the people
..you love and .care for, that-
they are special and impor-
tant. Tell them, before it is
too late. Remember, we reap
what we sow. What we put
into the lives of others
comes back into our own.
Pray for our "teachers and
School Board personnel it's
an investment in our future.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


This is the week for early
voting. If you think there is
any chance that you might
not get to the polls on next
Tuesday, go vote now, or
vote absentee. It is your right
and privilege to cast a ballot -
then if your favorite candi-
date wins you can say you
helped make this possible; if
your favorite candidate does
not win, you tried. We are so
fortunate to have a chance to
express our desire for the
person of our choice. Take
advantage of that right by
voting early, if you think
there is any chance you
might not be able to go to. the
polls.
So far the campaigning
seems to be going very
smoothly. We have noticed
only one instance of sign de-
struction, and hope that is an
isolated event and that who-
ever did this will be caught
and punished. If it is just mis-
chief, that is a terrible way to
have fun. We hope, pray and
feel that no candidate would
approve of such action.

ways a treat to visit with her
at our Saturday morning

on Aging. They especially
enjoyed playing on the play-
ground equipment at the
park (some of the same ones
their dad and uncle Hey-
ward played on so many
years ago) and going to the
library. Their favorite activi-
ty, though, was taking turns
riding on the tractor with

Erica McCoy, our new
third grade teacher, was a

As an introduction, Micah
Williams is the son of
Wendy (Grace) and Wade
Williams of Rome, and the
grandson of Mary Ann and

Wendy is a graduate of
Hamilton County High
School and is a teacher in the
school system in Rome.
Micah Williams, a student
at Rome high school, is
drumming all day, every
day. He spent the summer
performing and competing
across the country as a mem-
ber of the Memphis Sound
Drum and Bugle Corps. Mic-
ah plays the snare drum; he
is one of about 130 members
chosen.
Micah spent time in Mem-
phis since last Nov. prepar-
ing for the summer and
trained there before the first
performance. The first show,
he performed in front of hun-
dreds of people and really
got into it. Micah gets up
every morning at 7 a.m. for
physical workout, spends
the rest of the day, until 10:30
at night, in various sessions.
They have played in Mis-
souri, Tennessee, Kentucky,
Indiana, Washington, DC
and Illinois.
Micah had tomiss the first

mentary Education.
She is excited to be
back "home" at NHE
where she and her
children attended.
Trixie Newsome is
the daughter of Mar-
sha and Kenneth
Newsome of Jennings. She
graduated from FSU in 2004
and says she's happy to be
back teaching at NHE where
she was once a student. Her
second grade students are
happy too!
Mrs. McCall continued, a


days of school to finish the
circuit, but he said it was def-
initely worth it. "There's
nothing like the feeling of
walking off the field after a
really good performance."
Micah's dad is a middle
school band director, but the
Memphis Sound experience
is taking the drumming to
the next level. It's a lot more
competitive and a lot more
aggressive. Every step, every
move must be in perfect uni-
son.
It is such a huge commit-
ment that Micah doesn't
know yet whether he will
pursue another summer
with, Memphis Sound next
year, but he does intend to
continue drumming. "It's
something I've always done.
It's always fun. I just love
performing and showing
off."
This information was tak-
en from the Young Romans
of Rome News Tribune. It
was shared with us by Mic-
ah's grandmother, Mary
Ann Grace of Jasper. Anyone
who knows Wendy will re-
member her as just such a

young lady.
Hope to see you at the
polls this week or next.

Trojans win Jamboree games,

lost to Monticello 20-14


Submitted by Randy McCoy
After winning both Jamboree games,
10-14 over Mayo, and 21-6 over Perry,
we played Monticello, a very tough
team, this past Friday.
Our defense was incredible all night
long, holding Monticello to 100 yards to-
tal. However, our offense and receiving
teams just could not hang on to the ball.
We turned the ball over nine times on
fumbles. We had 22 penalties, although
half were highly questionable.
Even after all this, we were on the one-
and-a-half yard line; Eddie Battles, our
quarterback, sneaked into the end zone

only to have it called for an offsides
penalty. The next play, another offsides
penalty was called resulting in us turn-
ing over the ball on downs. We just
could not seem to get a break.
Two touchdowns were scored by
Lathaniel Sowell and by Amp Stephens
on a pass reception. The final score on
Friday was 20-14.
Special thanks go out to School Board
members Don Fenneman and Lynn
Roberson for all their help on and off the
field.
Come out and support the Trojans Fri-
day, Sept. 1, at home against Fort White.

but Indeterminate. Also, minor revenue
loss to state'government is probable, but in-
determinate.

DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE VARIANCE

The Department of Environmental Protection
(Department) gives notice of its intent to issue
a variance (File No. 0,144913-007) to PCS
Phosphate White Springs (PCS), Post'Office
Box 300, White Springs, Florida 32096 under
section 378.212, Florida Statutes (F.S.) from
the provisions of section 378.209(1), F.S. and
paragraph 62C-16.0051(12)(b), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code (F.A.C.) on 38 acres of
mined, contouring not completed lands within
the Hamilton County Mine. The variance is
from the time period for reclamation following
the completion of mining operations.
Section 378.209(1), F.S. requires that recla-
mation and restoration be .completed within
two years of the actual completion of mining
operations. As PCS plans to resume mining
in the mineind, contouring not completed areas,
and any reclamation performed oh the mined,
contouring not completed areas would be re-
disturbed by future mining operations, PCS
sought approval of a variance under section
378.212, F.S. to the time period for reclama-
tion required by section 378.209(1), F.S. and
paragraph 62C-16.0051(12)(b), F.A.C.
The Department has determined that since
Immediate reclamation performed oh the sub-
ject areas would likely be redisturbed by future
mining operations, there exists sufficient justi-
fication for allowing a temporary delay in the.
time period for reclamation of the 38 acres of
mined, contouring not completed lands within


reclamation programs SR-82(3)(A),
SR'8816(A), and SR'8715(A). The term of the
variance will be until January 1, 2013, unless a
later date is approved In writing by the Depart-
ment.
The Department's file on this matter is avail-
able for public inspection during normal busi-
ness hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at the
Florida Department of Environmental Protec-
tion, Bureau of Mine Reclamation, 2051 East
Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760,
Telephone: (850) 488-8217.

Under this intent to issue, this variance is here-
by granted subject to the applicants compli-
ance with any requirement in this intent to pub-
lish notice of this intent in a newspaper of gen-
eral circulation and to provide proof of such
publication in accordance with section 50.051,
F.S. This action is final and effective on the
date filed with the Clerk of the Department un-
less a sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed under sections 120.569
and 120.57, FS., as provided below. If a suffi-
cient petition for an administrative hearing is
timely filed, this intent to issue automatically
becomes only proposed agency action on the
application, subject to the result of the admin-
istrative review process. Therefore, on the fil-
ing of a timely and sufficient petition, this ac-
tion will not be final and effective until further
order of the Department. When proof of publi-
cation is provided, if required by this intent,
and if a sufficient petition is not timely filed, the
variance will be issued as a ministerial action.
Because an administrative hearing may result
in the reversal or substantial modification of
this action, the applicant is advised not to com-
mence construction or other activities until the
deadlines noted below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing or request for an ex-
tension of time have expired and until the vari-
ance has been executed and delivered. Medi-
ation Is not available.
A person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may petition
for an administrative proceeding (hearing) un-
der sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The pe-
tition must contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received by the clerk) in
the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), FA.C., a person
whose substantial Interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an ex-
tension of time to file a petition for an adminis-
trative hearing. The Department may, for good
cause shown, grant the request for an exten-
sion of time. Requests for extension of time
must be filed with the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flori-
da 32399-3000, before the applicable dead-
line. A timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running of the time period for filing
a petition until the request is acted upon. If a
request is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the deadline was the
result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an admin-
istrative hearing-is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by the out-
come of the administrative process have the
right to petition to intervene in the proceeding.
Intervention will be permitted only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer upop the filing of.
a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205,
F.A.C.


In accordance with section 378.212, F.S., peti-
tions for an administrative hearing by the ap-
plicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt
of this written notice. Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than the applicant, and other than
those entitled to written notice under section
120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of
publication of the notice or within 14 days of
receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs
first. Under section 120.60(3), F.S., however,
any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition with-
in 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition
to the applicant at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition for an administrative hearing
within the appropriate time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of that persons right to request
an administrative determination (hearing) un-
der sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.

A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agencies file or identification
number, if known; .
(b)The name, address, and telephone number
of the petitioner; the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioners representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the address for ser-
vice purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioners substantial Interests are or will be af-
fected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petition-
er received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;

alleged, Including the specific facts that the pe-
titioner contends warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the agencies proposed action;
,(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
that the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agencies proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action that the pe-
titioner wishes the agency to take with respect
to the agencies proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material
facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under paragraphs
120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S;, a petition for ad-
ministrative hearing must be dismissed by the
agency if the petition does not substantially
comply with the above requirements' or Is un-
timely filed.
This intent to issue a variance constitutes an
order of the Department. Subject to the provi-
sions of paragraph 120.68(7)(a), F.S., which
may require a remand for an administrative
hearing, the applicant has the right to seek ju-
dicial review of the order under section 120.68
FS., by the filing of a notice of appeal under
rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate

Wow! This year at Hamil-
ton County High School
(HCHS) has started out ter-
rifically! As we begin the
year, we need to extend a
special thanks to our teach-
ers. All of the teachers are
hard working and deter-
mined to be a great help to
the students.
This year at HCHS will be
extra special because of the
wonderful new teachers
that have joined our family.
Most have moved from dif-
ferent schools; others are
fresh out of college.. This
year as we learn new things,
all the teachers will be right
there alongside us.
Keith Wynn grew up at
HCHS 'and followed his
dream of earning a degree
in Agriculture at North
Florida Community College
(NFCC) and University of
Florida. Mr. Wynn has lived
in Gainesville, Suwannee,
and Holmes County. His
success brought him back to
Hamilton County to teach
Agriculture. He is looking
forward to a great year and
working with the students
to expand their minds.
Anyone who has Brooks
Culpepper is in for an awe-
some year. Mr. Culpepper
attended NFCC, Valdosta
State University and the
University of Georgia and
loves to tell stories. He loves
John Deere decor and has
decorated his attire and
room with it. Mr. Culpep-
per is motivated to teach his
students about English, life,
and common sense. English
certainly won't be boring
this year at HCHS!
Woodrow Lumpkin, an
algebra teacher at HCHS,
has been teaching for 38
years.. He, came back to
Hamilton County with en-
couragement from other
teachers. Mr. Lumpkin has
degrees from River Com-
munity College, Edward
Waters College, FL-Atlantic,
Prairie View University and,
Texas A&M. With' high
hopes for the school and the
community, Woodrow
Lumpkin is ready to prove
Hamilton isnot going to get
left behind.
Linda Linton is teaching
Intensive Reading. Mrs.
Linton attended NFCC,
University of North Florida

We are excited to have a
full basket of 18 apples (of
our eyes) enrolled in Pre-K
this year. We have many ac-
tivities and several field
trips planned for these fabu-
lous fours. We are working
hard to learn sounds, count-
ing, reading, colors, and so
much more. In addition, we
have gotten off to a great
start by exploring new
ideas. Right now, we are try-
ing to teach our parents that
school is really okay and we
are having fun while we
learn. We do not understand
why our older brothers and
sisters complain about such
a fun place. We are having a
great time.
Mrs. Selph's kindergarten
students have been really
busy this week. We are
working on letters, numbers
and colors. Our story for the
week was "Miss Mary Wore
Her Red Dress."
Mrs. Williams' kinder-
garten class had a very busy
week. In addition to their
daily classroom. activities
and morning routine the
students took assessment
tests in both reading and
math. Mrs. .Williams' class
theme for the week was ap-
ples. The class read and re-
read "The Apple Tree" and
"Three Friends and The Ap-
ple Tree." They also' learned
the song "The Apple Tree."
They learned that apples are
a fruit, and that they have
different colors red, yellow
and green. .
Mrs. Mickler's first grade
is off to a busy start. First
grade is implementing two
new programs this year.
They are Saxon Phonics and

Patience really pays off


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
Roger Cornelius had fished
with me before as part of a
crew from the Ted Nugget
Outdoor Adventure Club. Dur-
ing that first fish trip offshore,
we accidentally hung into and
landed a 125 pound sandbar
shark with Roger on the pole.
It became apparent that the
shark made an impression on
Roger because it wasn't long
afterwards he called and asked
if I did shark fishing trips.
Specifically, he wanted a
large shark. I told him it would
be a first for me and before we
could go I had to get a shark
permit for charter. Well, this
week was Roger's trip. For this
trip I had onboard a couple of
things that were unusual. One,
a bait cooler filled with two
boxes of chum, several boxes
of left over frozen sardines,
bags of freezer burned fish.
(spanish mackerel and amber-
jack) and one super sized blue
runner. Two, a shot gun. I also
brought three 9/0 reels loaded
with 200 lb test terminally
rigged with 8 foot of 330 lb
test stainless wire and 14/0
meat hook. The tackle was se-
rious looking compared to the
normal grouper gear of 4/0's


with 50 lb test. As for a 'hunt-
ing' location, I picked out a
large area of live bottom
around Lamb Spring.
We, first off, set up a chum
slick. In a few minutes,
schools of bait fish dimpled
the water around the boat. It
was not long after that the first
rod doubled over. Roger got on
the rod. A couple of pumps and
the line went limp. Whatever
took the bait had cut the wire
three feet above the hook! I
didn't say anything but I was
kinda glad it did. The second
hit did the same thing; the wire
was cut clean. Perhaps, we
may have bitten off more than
I cared to chew. The third hit,
we ended up taking a four foot
barracuda. That was strange
because the fish took a dead
bait off the bottom.
However, I was glad to have
it. I split it lengthwise and we
hung it over the side for fresh
chum. After that, there were
two quick hits that simply let
go. Then the big wait ... a few
hours filled up with light naps,
some good stories and me
"tennis ball'" thinking, "we
should leave/the. chum will
work; we should, try a new
spot/the chum will work; we
should tiy around a wreak/the


chum will work." Hours of
batting those thoughts around
in my head was giving me a
headache. In the meantime, the
grunts were steadily pecking
away our bait to the point of
getting thin on re-baits. Noth-
ing like adding a little pressure
to a hot boring event. "A fin,"
exclaimed Roger. My first
thought was dolphin. My first
sight was '0' my.' Well off the


the dog fight began. Reel up a
little to lose a lot changed to
reel up a little lose a little, then
to reel up a lot to lose a little. It
was going great until the shark
saw the boat. Start all over.
Roger was feeling the stress of
round seven. At times, he was
an upside down letter L lean-
ing on the gunnel. When will it
end, I thought. Roger thought.
when will it ever end. A half an


stem a large fin darted to and
fro coming toward the boat.
The baits were set right in the
path. When it came into view,
the fin was attached to a high-
ly activated ten foot hammer
head shark. The pectoral fins
pointed down, the hammer
swung back and forth and the
tail thrusting the monster at us
at a quick pace. I felt the boat'
get small. It stalled at the float-
ing bait. Then, for some un-
known reason, it swam off. We
tossed extra chum out as an in-
vitation for an encore but to no
avail. Little B said "let's cut
some of this barracuda up for
bait." Roger reeled in the free-
line pole and we replaced the
amberjack chunk with the bar-
racuda and re-set the bait.
Within five minutes that pole
went off.' Roger was hooked
up with something huge. Two
minutes into the fight, the fish
threw the bait. Disappointed
for the sixth hook up. We re-
set the line with more barracu-
da. Five minutes later, the pole
double over, the reel dumped
line off the tight drag and
Roger was locked into round
, seven. The shark ran dead off
the stern, then took to the port
itoard the bo. Little B re-
'leased the anchor rode from
the bow cleat. The bitter end of
the anchor line had a float
slipped on it so we could come
back to pick it up afterwards.".;
The shark cut under the anchor.
line as we drifted away. Roger
was on the bow with Little B
keepinglhim steady. The shark
ran starboard down the boat
off the stem. Back to the port'
for another merry-go-round
for Roger. The shark took
Roger three times around the
boat. An open uncluttered boat
'sure has advantages when tak-
ing on large fish. It is a great
option rather than having. to
jocke\ the boat around to keep
the fish to the stem. Anyway,
the dog race was over. Now,


hour into it, Little B got the 20
gauge out and put a shell in it.
The shark was showing signs
of fatigue, as was, Roger. Lit-
tle B handed me the gun and
said "I'm not going to be the
one to shoot a hole in your
boat." That gives one confi-
dence like a coach saying "I'm
putting you in because your
dad is my boss." I'm not the
best shot in the world so I was
waiting on a clean head shot.
One that didn't have the steel
leader in the cross hairs. Dur-
ing the time it took me to feel
good about squeezing the trig-
ger,: I know Roger was think-
ing."Good lord, captain Stevie
Wonder could have popped
him by now." It took two head
shots before the shark let us


get a rope around its tail. It
hung there for 20 minutes
while we collected ourselves.
Afterwards, we put two more
ropes around it. One around
the torso and the other near the
head. While putting on the tor-
so rope, the shark had it's last
gasp, thrashing up with it's
mouth close enough to Little B
that he had a religious experi-
ence; however, I don't think
the Lord approved the lan-
guage. It took all three of us to
heave the shark over the gun-
nel. It landed on the deck with
a solid thud. We pushed it
against the side and placed 20
pound bags of ice all over it,
then draped wet towels over
top of the shark. Next stop to
pick up the anchor then to the
dock for photos. At the dock
we measured the bull shark
just shy of eight foot and
guessed the weight to be a lit-
tle less. than two hundred
pounds. What an experience!
The next experience was get-
ting the meat out of the shark;
You see, one cleans fish but
butchers sharks. Just handling
that animal was tough. It end-
ed up to be a two hour ordeal.,
I liked the the catching part but
observed the butchering part to
more than I. care to do. I'ni a
fan of catch and release but
Roger was happy with a large
cooler of the shark meat. I.
hope so because he is now the
Bubbagump of shark. You
know, fried shark, grilled
shark, broiled shark, boiled


shark, shark burgers, shark
gumbo, shark skampi, shark ...
I'm glad my indecision led to
the patience needed to let the
chum slick work. Seeing a
huge hammer head come in
hot and heavy was worth the
time on the anchor. The bull
shark was the icing on the
cake. Good job Roger! Red
grouper are hot right now. The
two red grouper per person
change has actually made
them somewhat of nuisance.
At this point, I'm tossing back
red grouper less tha k22 inches
though the. state minimum size
is 20 inches. Gag grouper are
biting well too; however, the
reds are so aggressive you
have catch numerous reds be-
fore icing down a good mess
of gags. It's a nice problem to
have. The grouper a taking
frozen baits, from 40 feet on
out to deeper water. The best
bet is to save the gas and fish
shallow hard bottom areas.
Trout fishing is 'pretty good
during the week: when 'there
aren't thousands of boats on
the flats doing the scallop
thing. Fishing the deeper grass
beds with live pinfish or c4t
bait on a jig head is produc-
tie. By' word of mouth, the
iedfish are a little hard to come
by. But those die-hard creek
fishers, your one fish limit is a
reasonable expectation. That's
it from. the Steinhatchee. Take
care of yourself and your tack-
le.

HPV and the link




to cervical cancer


Those who haven't been living under a shell for the
last several months have probably heard news of a
new vaccine that has been approved by the FDA for
the prevention of cervical cancer. During the course of
discussion about the drug Merck's Gardasil -
the terms "human papiloma virus (HPV)" and
"sexually transmitted disease" have been used,
spurring some controversy on the FDA's decision.
Safe to be given to women ages 9 to 26, the purpose
of the vaccine is to offer protection from infection and
diseases associated with "high- risk" HPV types that
cause approximately 70 percent of cervical cancers.
The vaccine also blocks the "low-risk" types Ilffi)Mddthe
with most cases of genital warts.
Human papilomavirus isthe name of a group of
viruses that infect the skin. Typically, HPV results in
warts that can occur on different areas of the body,
including the genitals. HPV has also been linked to
abnormal cell changes in the cervix and is thought to
be a contributing factor to some cervical cancer cases
that are diagnosed through Pap screenings by a
gynecologist.
In many cases, HPV is asymptomatic, meaning a
person does not even know he or she has it let alone
able to spread it. There are more than 100 types of
HPV and 30 types are transmitted sexually and result
in genital warts. It is considered the most common
sexually transmitted disease. Genital HPV is spread
through skin-on-skin-contact, not bodily fluids, so
condom use is not entirely effective in preventing
transmissions.
According to research, about 5.5 million new genital
HPV cases occur each year, and approximately 20

million people men and women are thought to have
an active HPV infection at any given time.
Being classified as an STD has made HPV a topic that
wasn't widely discussed. However, upon discovery of the
link to cervical cancer and treatment possibilities, HPV is
now being discussed by men and women.
According to the CDC, approximately 10 of the 30
identified genital HPV types can lead, in rare cases, to
development of cervical cancer. The American Cancer
Society estimates that. 10,000 women will develop
invasive cervical cancer and about 4,000 women will die
Linfjto Cervical Cancer
0m this disease each year.
While there was once no cure for HPV, new hope lies in
the Gardasil vaccine, which significantly reduced the
combined incidence of persistent HPV 6, 11,. 16, or 18
infection and related diseases, including new cervical
precancers and genital warts compared with a placebo in
a study published in "The Lancet Oncology." The vaccine
will be used as a prophylactic in women of the
determined age group, a notion that has caused
controversy among some religious groups.
Some conservative groups have billed the new drug as a
"promiscuity vaccine," saying it will give teens a reason
to think casual sex just got a little safer. But proponents
of the drug say that it is a viable option against cervical
cancer and that message should be put above all others.
After all, while tetanus shots are given to ward off
lockjaw, those who receive them do.not go seeking out
rushty nails. Perhaps the same will be said for those
recei\ ing Gardasil.
For more information on HPV and cervical cancer
testing and treatment, visit your local gynecologist.

FEMA RECOVERY N*WS


As Floridians prepare
themselves and their families
for another hurricane season,,
government and nonprofit of-
ficials are urging them also to
prepare to help others if a
storm should strike the state.
"Generous volunteers meet
essential needs. Their tireless
efforts help supplement what
government programs pro-
vide," said Scott R. Morris,
Florida long-term recovery
director for the Department of
Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA). "Volunteers
tackled the challenges of last
year's hurricane season head
on, and we encourage a re-
doubled volunteer effort this
year. And t'o make disaster
volunteerism more effective,
residents should consider
how and where to volunteer
now, before a storm strikes."
Close cooperation among
federal and state officials and
nonprofit organizations is
critical to successful disaster
relief and recovery efforts.
For its part; FEMA uses Vol-
untary Agency Liaisons to as-
sist voluntary agencies with
federal assistance programs,
coordination with other vol-
unteer organizations, dona-
tion management, and. identi-
fying special needs popula-
tions.

Volunteers have proven in-
dispensable in past disaster
response and recovery efforts
inr Florida. Last year's hurri-
cane season was met with a
wealth. of donations and vol-
unteerism from Florida indi-
viduals and organizations. In
2005, volunteers staffed
phone banks, distributed
emergency food and water,
and cleared debris in response
to Hurricane Wilma-and the
other hurricanes that tested
Florida residents during the
2005 season.
In many cases, volun-
teerism that was initially a re-
sponseto Hurricane Katrina-
both to the devastation along
the Gulf Coast and evacuees
who came to Florida after the
storm-dovetailed with Wilma
response and recovery initia-
tives. Volunteer efforts from
past hurricanes, and the net-
works developed to speed
those endeavors, proved vi-
tal-and were strengthened
even further by last year's re-
sponse.
"Given Florida's recent his-
tory of hurricane activity, we
are especially aware of the
value of neighbors helping
neighbors-those who volun-
teer their time and talents to
rebuild Florida communi-
ties," said Craig Fugate, di-
rector of the Florida Division


of Emergency Management.
"Volunteers are the unsung
heroes that truly help change
outcomes in the recovery
process. I urge all Floridians
to- get involved, volunteer,
and make a difference in their
hometowns."
According to statistics
compiled by Volunteer Flori-
da, the Governor's Commis-
sion on Volunteerism and
Community Service, during
the 2005 hurricane season,
some 112,600 volunteers con-
tributed 4.7 million hours of
service statewide. The total
volunteer contribution in re-
sponse to Florida's 2005,.hur-
ricane season, including in-
kind donations and total vol-
unteer hours, was valued at
$105.6 million (up from an
estimated volunteer contribu-
tion of $102 million in 2004).
Those participating in the
volunteer efforts included
faith-based groups, United
Way chapters, local volunteer
centers and hunger-relief or-
ganizations. Those affected
by the 2005 hurricanes re-
ceived 5.8 million meals pre-
pared or donated by volun-
teers.
Corporations, relief organi-
zations and private individu-
als donated 7.9 million bot-

"Given the unpredictable
nature of hurricanes, it is nev-
er certain who will be avail-
able to help out in the event
of Such a disaster," Fugate
said. "So if we all work to
foster a year-round, sense of
volunteerism, the potential
pool of volunteers during the
hurricane season will be
much larger."
.Nonprofit workers say that
volunteering offers people
the satisfaction that comes


with helping their fellow citi-
zens. They also point out that
volunteering can be conta-
gious: neighbors tell neigh-
bors, friends get more friends
involved. And emergency
management officials say that
regular volunteerism lays the
groundwork for a spirit of co-
operation and selfless sacri-
fice during times of natural
disaster.
"There are volunteer activ-
ities to suit every interest and
skill," Morris said. "The
sooner you get involved, the
sooner you can make a differ-
ence-and potentially receive
specialized training on topics
such as volunteering in a dis-
aster situation. Both emer-
gency and long-term volun-
teerism activities help to
build a stronger, more vibrant
Florida. We can all do our
part by volunteering today,
and by considering how we
can be of help if another hur-
ricane threatens Florida."
FEMA manages federal re-
sponse and recovery efforts
following any national inci-
dent. FEMA also initiates
mitigation activities, works
with state and local emer-
gency managers, and man-
ages the National Flood In-
surance Program (NFIP).
FEMA became part of the
U.S. Department of Home-
land Security on March 1,
2003.
SERT is a collaboration of
Florida's state agencies led

racAn Wilma, entire .otros hu-
racanes que retaron a los res-
identes de la Florida en la
temporada del 2005.
En muchos casos, el Vol-
untariado que se realize ini-
cialmente para la respuesta al
huracin Katrina, la dev-
astaci6n en la costa del Gol-
fo y las evacuaciones hacia
Florida, coincidieron con la
respuesta y de recuperaci6n
de Wilma. Los esfuerzos de
los voluntaries de los pasa-
dos huracanes-y la red Agil
que han desarrollado, prueba
lo vital que son y fueron for-
talecidos por las respuestas
del afio pasado. :
"Dado que la Florida ha
tenido una historic de hura-
canes recientes, estamos
claros en el valor de los veci-
nos ayudando a los vecinos,
aquellos que donaron su
tiempo y su talent para ire-
construir las comunidades de
la Florida" sefial6 Craig Fu-
gate, Director del Equipo Es-
tatal de Respuestas a Emer-
gencias del Estado de la
Florida. "Los voluntarios son
los heroes an6nimos que ver-
daderamente. ayudaron a
crear los resultados del pro-
ceso de la recuperaci6n. Yo
les exhorto a todos los flori-
danos a que se envuelvan,
sean voluntarios y hagan una
diferencia en sus comu-
nidades".
De acuerdo con las estadis-
ticas que se confeccionaron
por los Voluntarios de la
Florida, la Comisi6n del
Gobemador en Voluntariado
y Servicio Comunitario, du-
rante la temporada de hura-
canes del 2005 unos 112,600
voluntaries contribuyeron
con 4.7 millones de horas en
servicios en todo el estado.
El total de contribuci6n es de
voluntarios por respuesta a la
temporada de huracanes del
2005 incluyendo donaciones
y el total de horas de labor
fue valorado en $105.6 mil-
lones (esto es un estimado de
las contribuciones de volun-
tarios en el 2004 de unos
$102 millones). Aquellos
voluntaries que participaron
en los esfuerzos incluyendo a
los grupos religiosos, capitu-
los de United Way, centros
de voluntaries locales y or-
ganizaciones que ayudan a
combatir el hambre. Aquel-
los que fueron afectados por
los huracanes del 2005 reci-
bieron unas 5.8 millones de
comidas preparadas o don-
adas por los voluntarios.
Las corporaciohes, organi-
zaciones de alivio donaron
7.9 millones de agua em-
botellada y aproximada-
mente 257,000 bolsas de


hielo para alivio de hura-
canes. Adicional a estos es-
fuerzos el estado y muchos
voluntaries de la Florida via-
jaron a otras areas afectadas
del pais durante la temporada
de huracanes del 2005.
Voluntarios hacen la difer-
encia en y fuera de la tempo-
rada de huracanes
Las organizaciones volun-
tarias del estado de la Florida
necesitan voluntarios todo el
afio para un sin nmimero de
proyectos; limpiando par-
ques, organizando almacenes
de comidas, adopci6n de pro-
gramas de alfabeiizaci6n.
trabajando con nifios de-
saventajados, dando tutorias
a estudiantes, ayudando a
nifios con incapacidades y
brindindole ayuda a las per-
sonas sin hogar. Los capifu-
los de la Cruz Roja Ameri-
cana responded a los desas-
tres durante todo el afio, des-
de incendios en casas hasta
derrames de materials peli-
grosos, fuegos forestales y
accidenites de transportation.
Ellos proven ropa. alimen-
tos y alberge de emergencia a
victims de desastres y tam-
bi6n ayudan a darles comida
a los bomberos y a los traba-
jadores de emergencia.

"Dado a que la naruraleza
de los huracanes es impre-
decible, casi nunca estamos
seguros que quien estara
disponibles para ayvudar en la
eventualidad de un desastre".
indic6 Fugate. "Asi que si to-
dos podemos trabajar juntos
todo el afio y adoptar un sen-
tido de voluntariado, el po-
tencial de voluntaries que
podriambs acceder durante la
temporada de huracanes
seria uno much mis
grande".
Los empleados de las orga-
nizaciolnes sin fines de lucro
dicen que el voluntariado les
ofrece la satisfacci6n de ayu-
dar a sus compafieros ciu-
dadanos. Ellos tambien pun-
tualizaron que el voluniaria-
do puede ser contagioso, los


vecirios se lo dicen a otros
vecinos y amigos involucran.
Los funcionarios de la ad-
ministraci6n de manejo de
emiergencias dijeron que los
voluntarios regulares ponen
el fundamento del espiritu de
cooperaci6n y de sacrificio
abriegado durante un desas-
tre natural.
".Hay actividades para vol-
untarios para acomodar to-
dos los intereses y las habili-
dades" indic6 Morris.
"Mientras mis rapido usted

en temas tales como ser vol-
untario -en una situaci6n de

It's a fact that some potential home buyers and sellers try the
process on their own, then quickly turn to a professional.


There are many reasons involved. One key reason is the added
measure of safety that can come from a REALTOR escorting you to
homes for sale in unfamiliar neighborhoods or arranging to show
your home to prescreenecd potential buyers.


So x whether \you're buying, selling or leasing real estate, it makes
perfect sense to look for the sign of the REALTOR.
