City and County continue negotiations
for fire protection services
The. Hamilton County Commissioners
and Jasper City Manager Kent Cichon
have been negotiating a new interlocal
agreement for fire protection services pro-
vided by the City in unincorporated areas
of the County since July. The original
agreement ended on Aug. 12, but the City
granted an extension that will end on Mon-
day, Sept. 11.
In a letter dated Aug. 1, the Board of
County Commissioners requested a public
meeting with the City Council "to discuss
services the City of Jasper provides to
Hamilton County and those Hamilton
County provides to the City of Jasper." Ci-
chon notified the Board that the members
of the Council directed him to meet with
the Commissioners and discuss the new
In response, the Board sent another letter

Pony found dead in White Springs
Possibly killed by a bear
On Wednesday, Aug.
23, when Milton Mizell
went out before daylight
to see what his dogs were
barking at, he didn't ex-
pect to find his pony half-
eaten. According to
Mizell, .something had at-
tacked the miniature
.pony, which weighed
about 600 pounds, and.
had eaten its stomach and
Mizell, who lives on 141
SE Blvd. off CR 25A out-
side of White Springs,
contacted the Fish and
Wildlife Commission who
sent Game Warden Jere-
my Dixon to investigate.
Although there were no
tracks on the hard-packed
ground, Dixon found claw
marks on a tree nearby
and signs of bear scat. The
pony was probably killed
quickly, Dixon said.
Although Dixon set
traps for the- bear three
nights, the bear did iot
return. He will continue
to monitor the area, but
he suspects that it has
Dixon said that bears
travel in the area near the
Suwannee River where
Mizell lives. Bears do not
usually go near houses or
people, according to
Dixon. He said that bears
usually look out for their
stomachs and he thinks
that it took advantage of
the tethered pony.
"It's kind of scary,"
Mizell said. "To think that
something would have a
enough nerve to tackle a
horse. It could do the
same to a person walking
around outside. It was re-
ally strong because it
dragged the horse almost
10 feet after killing it."

care in the event of a hurri-

of these questions is "yes,"
then you should .consider
now what extra steps, to

By Jeff Cordero Nerw Hope Baptist Church
Why me Lord?
After living what I felt
was a "decent" life, my
time on earth came to the
end. The first thing I re-
member is sitting on a
bench in the waiting room
of what I thought to be a
courthouse. The doors
opened and I was instruct-
ed to come in and have a
seat by the defense table.
As I looked around I saw
the "prosecutor." He was a
villainous looking gent
who snarled as he stared at
me. He definitely was the
most evil person I have
ever seen. I sat down and
looked to my left and there
sat my attorney, a kind and
gentle looking man whose
appearance seemed so fa-
miliar to me, I felt I knew
The corner door flew
open and there appeared
the Judge in full flowing
robes. He commanded an
awesome presence as He
moved across the room; I
couldn't take my eyes off
Him. As He took His seat
,behind the bench, He said,
"Let us begin."
The prosecutor rose and
said, "My name is Satan
and I am here to show you
why this man belongs in
hell." He proceeded to tell
of lies that I told, things
that I stole, and in the past
when I cheated others. Sa-
tan told of other horrible
perversions that were once
in my life and the more he
spoke, the further down in
my seat I sank. I was so em-
barrassed that I couldn't
look at anyone, even my
own attorney, as the Devil
told of sins that even I had
completely forgotten about.
As upset as I was at Satan
for telling all these things
about me, I was equally up-
set at my attorney who sat
there silently not offering
any form of defense at all. I
know I had been guilty of
those things, but I had done
some good in my life;
couldn't that at least equal
out part of the harm I'd
Satan finished with a fury
and said, "This man be-
longs in hell, he,is guilty of
all that I have charged and
there is not a person who
can prove otherwise."
When it was His turn, my
attorney first asked if He
might approach the bench.
The Judge allowed this
over the strong objection of
Satan, and beckoned Him
to come forward. As He got
up and started walking, I
was able to see Him in His
full splendor and majesty. I
, realized why He seemed so
familiar; this was Jesus rep-
resenting me, my Lord and
He stopped at the bench
and softly said to the Judge,
"Hi, Dad," and then He
-turned to address the court.
"Satan was correct in say-
ing that this man had
sinned; I won't deny any of
these allegations. And, yes,
the wage of sin is death,
and this man deserves to be
Jesus took a deep breath
and turned to his father
with outstretched arms and
proclaimed, "However, I
died on the cross so that
this person might have
eternal life and he has ac-
cepted Me as his Savior, so
he is Mine." My Lord con-
tinued with, "His name is
written in the book of life
and no one can snatch him
from Me. Satan still does
not understand yet. This
man is not to be given jus-
tice, but rather mercy."
As Jesus sat down, He
quietly paused, looked at
His Father and said, "There
is nothing else that needs to
be done. I've done it all."
, The Judge lifted His
mighty hand and slammed
the gavel down. The fol-
lowing words bellowed
from His lips, "This man is
free. The penalty for him
has already been paid in
full. Case dismissed."
As my Lord led me away,
I could hear Satan ranting,
and raving, "I won't give
up, I will win the next one."
I asked Jesus as He gave
me my instructions where
to go next, "Have You ever
lost a case?"
Christ lovingly smiled
and said, "Everyone that
has come to Me and asked
Me to represent them has
received the same verdict.
as you, 'paid in full.' "

there were suitable ways to

that they were among the "Gator Faith-

hope that Hamilton County High School

Alex Brown to serve as Grand Marshall

S Parents, especially
those at the elementary
SII level, you need to moni-
tor your child's reading
progress and there is no
excuse for you not to
monitor. The educational
system, by law, gives
m more'reading diagnostic
tests than Carter has liv-
er pills, and you can
chart the progress of your child over a pe-
riod of time. Your child needs to be at
school, in class, and on time, to take ad-
vantage of this instruction. If your child is
experiencing difficulty, after school tuto-
rials are available; call your school and
find out. Let's all work together to im-
prove our schools today and each day.
Cindy Foreman, Hamilton County
Chamber of Commerce, phoned me on
Friday asking questions about the stained
glass windows at First Baptist Church,
White Springs. I gave her as much infor-
mation as I could. She related to me of a
lady who has a group interested in
stained glass who wanted to make a tour
of our area and was interested in some of
the stained glass in our local churches.
Hamilton County certainly has a treasure
trove of beautiful stained glass windows
in churches around the county.
I was very impressed by the fact that

UF/IFAS recommends fighting fire with fire
While wildfires pose a se-
rious threat to humans, ani-
Smals and plants, University
of Florida / Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
(UF/IFAS) experts say
fighting fire with fire is an
excellent way to help pre-
In the past half a century,
.changes in Florida's wild-
lands have led to the return
of using prescribed burning
to manage vegetation in the
forests. In Florida, fire is
prescribed for 1.5 to 2 mil-
lion acres of land each year.
There are several factors-
that can increase the spread
of wildfires and the amount
of damage that they do.
Fire requires oxygen, fuel,
and heat to sustain itself. In
wildfires, the fuel generally
is provided by plants and
shrubs, and if there is an
abundance *of fire-prone
plant life, the chances of a
wildfire increase greatly.
One of the advantages of
prescribed burning is the
controlled removal of the
fuel that would allow a
wildfire to spread.. Pre-
scribed burning is also one
of the most important and
cost-effective tools used to
manage Florida's forested
lands for wildlife.
However, as. useful as
prescribed burning is, there
are still some safety con-
cerns and regulations to
keep in mind when con-
ducting prescribed burning
such as the possibilities of
fire spreading to adjacent
properties and smoke in-
trtision in populated areas.
burning is not allowed by
the Division of Forestry or
DOF, the agency that regu-
lates prescribed burning.
permits, when hot, dry
weather conditions or an
abundance of fuel would
increase the' chances that
the fire could spread. In ad-
dition, state and local agen-
cies must monitor the air
for pollutants to ensure that
it meets the National Ambi-
ent Air Quality Standards,
as established by the 1970
Federal Clean Air Act.
The best times to burn are
from winter through'
spring. Colder weather,
dormant season burns are
often best for controlling
heavy .fuel loads, or for
burning vegetation that has
a low volatility and high
moisture content in spring.
Growing season bums are
best, for controlling hard-
wood underbrush, as long
as the fuel load is moderate.
In order to conduct a pre-
scribed bum in the state,
authorization -must be re-
ceived from DOF. Before
seeking authorization, a
burner must prepare a bum
plan, which includes perti-
nent information like loca-
tion, size and description of
area to be burned, amount
and type of vegetation, and
a weather analysis.
All prescribed fires must
have adequate fire breaks
around the burn area, have
adequate personnel and fire
control equipment, remain
within the authorized area,
have someone present until
the fire is completely extin-
guished and have permis-
sion from the landowner.

scribed burning and photos

"Stand Still, and consider the won-
drous works of God." Job 37:14 God
wants, all of us to slow down, take time
to rest in Him, spend time reading His
word and really look at what it says.
He wants us to take time to think and
realize how amazing all His creations
really are. In this world we live in,
most people are so busy they no longer
have time to just rest and read the
word of God, to find out what God has
to say about their life and really hear
and know His voice.
I am sure you know of people who
never "stand still." They are running
around with so much to do, never con-
tent to wait for God to lead them. They
are good at running ahead of God and
trying to make their own path instead
of waiting for God to guide them. God
wants to be your guide and lead you in
the best path for you.
In this world there are all kinds of
guides, think about Indian scouts.
They would guide explorers through
mountain passes, they knew where to
find cool water and places to rest. A
forest ranger guides campers on hik-
ing trails and warns them to watch for
poisonous plants and snakes. A ship's
captain safely guides his ship to shore
even on a moonless night. In Psalms
48:14 God says "For this God is our
God for ever and ever: He will be our
guide even to the end" "We need to,
learn to let God be bur guide. everyday.
in every area of our lives. Many peo '
ple are so "antsy" they never seem
able to sit still and wait. There are-so
many people I meet who are never able
to wait. They run here and there, they
always are in a hurry, they always
seem to have to be doing something
even if they should be waiting or rest-
ing. I am sure you know people who,
can't sit still, they worry all the time,
they hate waiting and they don't have
any patience. God wants us to have pa-
tience. He tells us in Galatians 5:22,
that patience is a virtue. "But the fruit
of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, pa- ,
tience, kindness, goodness, faithful-
ness, gentleness and self-control."
How is your patience? When you
pray, do you get upset when you don't
get an answer soon? Have you ever
prayed about something for so long
that you began to wonder if God was
ever going to answer your prayers?
Maybe you finally gave up and quit
praying for that answer. Giving up is
never the answer. God will always an-
swer our prayers. We must keep ask-
ing. There is a great example of this in
Luke 11:5-10. "Then He said to them,.
"Suppose one of you has a friend, and
he goes to him at midnight and says,
'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
because a friend of mine on a journey
has come to me, and I have nothing to
set before him. "So I say to you: Ask
and it will be given to you; seek and
you will find; knock and the door will
be opened to you. For everyone who
asks receives', he who seeks finds; and
to him who knocks, the door will be
opened." We must be patient, continue
to pray for whatever the need is, and
wait patiently for the answer to come."
I waited patiently for the Lord; He
turned to me and heard my cry"
I know from experience that some-
times it seems the answer will never
come. I found the Lord as my Savior
when I was 15 and when I got home
that night, I shared the most wonder-
ful news with my parents. They were
not pleased, as they did not know Him
in that way, though we had been going
to church all my life. I began praying,
for God to save them and the years
kept going by I married Ken, a preach-
er, we kept praying for them. Our
daughter Jennifer was born dead, we
prayed and God raised her from the
dead! Many times God did miracles in
baby Jennifer's and my bodies, many
times they saw God's hand move, yet
they did not come to know the Lord.
We continued to pray, my daddy ended
up having serious heart problems and
was in the hospital for Christmas
when Jennifer was nine. We had
Christmas Eve with him on New
Year's Eve, and that night after 21
years of praying faithfully for my dad-
dy, God allowed me the privilege of
leading him to the Lord in prayer. Did
I wonder if he would ever get saved, if
God would answer my prayer?. Yes,
sometimes it was hard, but if what
you are asking God for is really worth
it, if it is really -important to you, you
will continue, you will wait on the
Lord, you will never give up, and God
will answer! Remember, God is always
on time, He is never late. My daddy
lived until spring and went to be with
Sometimes we just need to slow
down and stand still so we can hear
what God is saying, and so we can
find His path to follow. Psalm 130:5 "I
wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and
in His word I put my hope." Have you
put your hope in the Lord, are you
waiting on Him for the answer? We
need to learn to wait, which is some-
thing most people are not.very good
at anymore. We live in a world where
everyone wants everything now. So
many people, are living their lives as
if life was a fast food drive-thru or in-
stant coffee, instant everything, a
quick fix to a problem. People want it
now, and don't seem to have any pa-
tience to wait. We all need to learn to
Romans 8:25 says "But if we hope for
what we do not yet have, we wait for it
patiently." We also need to make sure
we did not miss the answer. Remem-
ber, sometimes the best answer for our
lives may be no. If that is the case, we
need to go on and continue to follow
our guide. He always knows what is
the very best for our lives.
God is always there wherever you
are and will never leave you or give up
on you. Yes, now is the time to seek
God for patience, to learn to wait, to
slow down and Stand Still.

When you read the title of this article
"Stand Still" what do you think of? Maybe
some of you think of a teacher telling
someone to stand still in line, or of your
mom or dad telling you to stand still
while they are showing you how to do
something. I am talking about a different
kind of standing still. I am talking about
slowing down, and listening to God. In
the Bible, which is God's word ,we read
these words in Job 37:14 "Stand Still, and
consider the wondrous works of God.".
God wants us to take time to stand still,
and pay attention to all of the wonderful
things that He has made and all the won-
derful things we have. Even kids can get
so busy they don't take time to read God's
word, to notice all the wonderful things
around them God has created, or even
take time to talk to God.
God wants to be your guide and lead
you in the best path for you. In this world
there are all kinds of guides. Think about
Indian scouts they would guide explor-
ers through the mountains, they knew
where to find cool water and places to
rest. A forest ranger guides campers on
hiking trails and warns them to watch for
poisonous plants and snakes. A ship's
captain safely guides his ship to shore
even on a dark night. In Psalms 48:14 God
says "For this God is our God for ever and
ever: He will be our guide even to the
end." We need to learn to let God be our
guide every day. Maybe you know people
who can't sit still, they hate waiting, and
they don't have any patience. God wants
us to have patience. He tells us in Gala-
tians 5:22 that patience is a virtue. "But
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control."
Do you have patience? When you pray
to God, do you get upset if you don't
think He answers your prayer fast
enough? God knows what you need and
- Stand still
when you need it. God is always on time.
We need to learn to wait for the answer to
our prayers. We need to follow our guide,
God knows what is best for us..
God is always there with you and will
never leave you or give up on you. Yes,.
now is the time to ask God for patience, to
learn to wait, to slow down and Stand
Still and talk to God.
A world without love,
Is like a tree with no leaves.
A flower wit no bloom,
the air with no breeze.
A world without love,
Can you imagein such a thing?
A child wiht no smile,
A bell with no ring.

A world without love
Is like the sea with no waves.
Or as a soul without Jesus,
No chance tobe saved.
A world'without love
Would be a terrible loss.
A world with no Savior,
A hill with no cross.
A world without love, .
Oh it never could be.'
I'm so thankful my Lord,
Went to Calvary for me. Amen

Dieting tips for those
making lifestyle changes
Dieters often make three mistakes: they deprive themselves of
the foods they love, chip away their meals until there are too few
calories and, not to mention, they're on a "diet" in the first
Take such moves in overhauling your eating patterns and
you're bound to fail because your brain will sabotage your diet,
says Mary Boggiano, a University of Alabama at Birmingham
psychologist who studies abnormal eating patterns.
"A lot of Americans want a quick fix so they are lured by
crash diets," Boggiano says. These diets are often too low in
calories, cut out favorite foods and are monotonous in favoring
only certain type of foods, such as all-carb or protein diets.
However, the brain responds to extreme, low-calorie diets by
triggering the metabolic appetite the body's need for more
energy and calories that can leave you hungry and vulnerable
to overeating, Boggiano says. In turn, when dieters deprive
themselves of the foods they enjoy or rely on bland foods, their
hedonic appetite the brain's craving for yummy tasting foods -
kicks in. Hedonic appetites can especially be triggered when a
person is stressed and seeks out a reward food, such as potato
chips or chocolate.
Eventually, dieters succumb to fighting the two appetites and
end up unable to stay on their diet, which results in old eating
So if going on a "diet" is wrong, what can you do? Instead,
consider it a lifestyle change, not a short-term diet, nutritionists
say. And along with some physical activity to boost your
metabolism, satisfy a. healthy mixture of metabolic and hedonic
appetites to meet a 1,200- or 1,500-calorie diet.
Experts also offer the following tips:
Eat balanced meals: Boggiano recommends three meals a
day, and no skipping breakfast. Research has shown eating
breakfast and low-fat meals are two common characteristics of%
people who keep weight off long-term. Meet national dietary
guidelines 6o1 fruits and vegetables, dairy, carbohydrates and

Department of Agriculture MyPyramid Plan at
Go low fat and count calories: Maintain a low-fat diet, which can
help you feel more full, and limit how much saturated fat, trans fat
and cholesterol you eat. To reduce trans fat, cut back on foods
containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, such as
commercially baked and fried foods. The 2006 American Heart
Association Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations call for a goal of
less than 7 percent of saturated fat and trans fatty acids of less than 1
percent of total calories.
Boggiano says that adults who eat no. less than 1,200 calories a
day should be able to maintain steady weight loss of up to two
pounds a week. If you have trouble keeping track, some nutritionists
recommend maintaining a food journal to record what you eat and
the calories and fat content.
Watch portion size: Dinner plates have gotten larger and meals
have gone super-size. For example, a suitable portion size at a fast-
food restaurant is actually a children's meal. For quick portion-size
judgments, remember that three ounces of meat or protein is about
the size of the palm of your. hand, one ounce of cheese is about the
equivalent of your thumb size; and one cup of milk, yogurt and fresh'
vegetables is about the size of a tennis ball, according to the
American Diabetes Association.
Drink healthy: What you drink such as soft drinks, alcohol and
whole milk can also be adding calories to your diet. On the flip
side, drinking water may actually help' you lose weight and feel
more energetic throughout the day. That's because research has
.shown that being dehydrated makes you feel hungry and may cause
you to overeat.
Can't stand water? Try flavored water, without any added sugar, or.
unsweetened fruit juice, vegetable juices and fat-free milk instead of
whole milk, which can save you about 80 calories or eight grams of,
Making such lifestyle changes can be easier said than done. That's
why Boggiano recommends taking it "one meal at a time."
Eat a health\ breakfast and heln focus on a health, lunch and
dinner "Then' otu'\ e had a reallI healthy da\." Boguiano sa\s.

brated Celtic folk group Leahy performing
in the historic Lucas Theatre for the Arts.
On the following evening, Friday, March
.16, a first-ever double-bill will pair four-
time Grammy winner and jazz great Di-
anne Reeves with rocking blues singer and
guitarist Susan Tedeschi, also at the Lucas
Theatre. On St. Patrick's Day itself, the ac-
claimed Irish ensemble Flook will give two
performances in the intimate American Le-
gion Hall located at the south end of
"This opening weekend is a snapshot of
what our festival offers throughout 18
days," said Rob Gibson, artistic and execu-
tive director of the Festival. "We remain
committed to presenting unique.and excit-
ing musical artists from around the word
within thehistoric district of our wonderful
city. We look forward to announcing our
entire lineup in October."
For the 2007 season, SMF will once
again produce an 18-day musical marathon
that includes symphonic music, blues, jazz,
gospel, chamber music, bluegrass, rock, a
wealth of international music and dance
styles, and its renowned American Tradi-
tions Competition. The artistic vision for
the festival includes a, commitment, to com-
missioned works, one-time only produc-
tions, and numerous freehand educational
concerts. Last year, more than 45,000 pa-
trons attended the production of 105 events
showcasing 500 artists from around the
world. It featured 59. ticketed events, 14
free midday concerts, 20 free youth educa-
tion concerts and several master classes
Savannahians began celebrating St.
Patrick's Day in 1813 with a private gath-
ering of the Hibernian Society, a group of
Irish Protestants. The first parade was five
years later. During the past 190 years, Sa-
vannah has attracted visitors from across
the globe to celebrate the great tradition of
this annual holiday. It is. now the third
largest in the world, behind New York and

Leahy is the Canadian powerhouse of
eight musical brothers and sisters who
mystify audiences whenever they play. The,
band is a whirlwind triple-threat of fiddle-
driven music, dance, and vocals augmented:
by keyboards and percussion. Their music
combines the influence of their Irish and
Scottish roots with their inherent desire to
widely travel the musical map. Their most
recent recording, In All Things, is marked
more than ever'by Leahy's willingness to.
range freely over musical boundaries and
shed conventions when necessary. This ap-.
proach earned them yet another Juno nom-
ination in 2005,. this time for Best Roots
and Traditional Album by a Group. Leal6y
includes Donnell, fiddle, Maria,. guitar;
Siobheann,, bass; Frank, drums; Agnes,'
ke) boards, Doug, fiddle; Erin. piano, and.
Angus, fiddle. For more on Leahy, visit

"One question I am always asked, 'Who
is the next Billie, Sarah, Ella, Carmen or
Lena?' I can now answer in two words:
'Dianne Reeves.' She sings and swings like
all of them put together. Sultry, savvy,
unique, adventurous, with a range that flies
off the Richter, she's the hottest thing in
jazz."-- Rex Reed, New York Observer
Dianne Reeves is perhaps the pre-emi-
nent jazz vocalist in the world today. As a
result of her virtuosity, improvisational
prowess and unique R&B and jazz stylings,
Reeves was awarded the Grammy for Best
Jazz Vocal Performance for her three con-
secutive recordings-a Grammy first in
any vocal category. Dianne Reeves brought
home her fourth Grammy for the sound-
track to the critically acclaimed film, Good
Night, Arid Good Luck in February 2006,
in which she also performed. Don't miss
this world-class vocalist the New York
Times recognizes as "a jazz singer of fre-
quently astonishing skill." For more infor-
mation on Ms. Reeves, visit www.dian-
"Tedeschi comes across with genuine
girlish charm and testifying Matriarchal
choir leader. No matter what your music
taste is, Tedeschi proves she's the real
deal.. .as her fiery music will move you -
heart, soul and body!" Pollstar
In the years since she captured the pub-
lic's musical imagination with her 1998
breakthrough album Just Won't Bum, the
multi-talented musician has established a
formidable reputation as a deeply expres-
sive singer, a prodigiously talented guitarist
and distinctive songwriter. She's won a
large and loyal audience for her ability to
craft elements of classic blues, rock, R&B,
folk and gospel into a distinctly individual
style that honors rootsy musical traditions
without being subservient to them. Hope
and Desire, Tedeschi's fourth album and
her first for Verve Forecast, marks a sub-
stantial departure for the versatile artist,
presenting Tedeschi in the role of interpre-
tive vocal stylist. For more information on
