The members of the
Jasper Woman's Club are
making plans for remod-
eling, decorating and
landscaping the club
house in anticipation of
its 100th anniversary in
October 2007. The Club
was organized in 1907
and federated in 1910.
They meet the second Fri-
day of each month, Octo-
ber through May.
Several businesses and
other organizations have
already donated money
and labor to restore the
club house. Some of the
youths from Panther Suc-
cess Center recently
cleared the debris from
*around the foundation of
the building. PCS Phos-
.phate has offered the
equipment. and' workers
to pressure wash the exte-
S nor of the club house.
According Verna


Horne, President of the
Woman's Club, the fire-
place is unsafe because
the firebox is cracked. She
would like to have the
fireplace cleaned and
sealed so that no one can
use it. Other projects in-
dude repairing the plas-
ter, refinishing the solid
wood doors and updating
the plumbing.
The big sign outside the
'club house needs cleaning
and the smaller sign
needs to'be replaced. Mar-
ion Turner, a member of
the Club, said that the
yard. needs an irrigation
system and a low-mainte-
nance landscape.
Anyone who is interest-
ed in making a donatiorf
to the 'Woman's Club
Restoration Fund can con-
tact Verna Horne at 792-
15'55 oL MNarion Turner at
792-1550.

Haven Hospice Care Center to

provide a home away from home for

critically ill patients


Krista Cornell, Associate Director of
Development of Haven Hospice of North
Central Florida, addressed the members
of the Jasper Woman's Club during their
monthly meeting on Nov. 13. Cornell ex-
plained some of the services Haven Hos-
pice provides and talked about the new
16-bedroom care center that will open
soon on US 90, west of Lake City.
"Haven Hospice comes into a person's,
life during a difficult time," Cornell said.
"They do whatever is necessary for any
length of time, wherever the care is need-
ed at home, in the hospital or in a care
center. Doctors, nurses, social workers,
chaplains and \ volunteers administer sup-
port, counseling and health care."
The rooms and community areas of the
care center are designed to look and feel
like home. Visitors are welcome at any


time. The care center provides:.a home
away from home for patients during
times of critical care. It also provides
respite care' to allow caregivers a time of
rest.
.The residents and their guests can relax
in the living area, the community room
or the sunroom. They can stroll along the
Memorial Walkway in the gardens. Or
there are several patios and a gazebo that
provide outside sitting areas. There is
even a chapel for those who feel the need
for solitude and prayer.
Some areas of the care center still need
decorating. Individuals and civic groups
are welcome to provide drapes, quilts, art
and shelving to help provide a homey
feeling for the residents. You can also

How to avoid financial scams


According to Privacy Rights Clearing
House, 8.9 million people became victims
of identity fraud last year, costing each
victim an average of nearly $6,400. That
amounts to $56.6 billion a year in fraud
claims. Financial scams are getting more
sophisticated and costing smart con-
sumers more cash each year.
The Internet is riddled with "phishing"
scams. Phishing happens when crooks
send fake e-mails or use pop-ups to lure,
or "phish," financial information away
from a consumer. The consumer is for-
warded to a fake Web site that appears to
be legitimate, and is asked to enter their
personal financial information, such as a
credit card number or social security
number, allowing the crook to steal their
identity. Do not send any'personal infor-
mation over the Internet unless you are
positive you know who is receiving the
information and that the information is
secure.
Some scams guarantee consumers a
credit card in advance for a fee before

they even apply. These offers are illegal
and often target people with credit prob-
lems. The credit crook will typically take
off with your fee and the loan will never
materialize. Legitimate credit offers never
require up-front fees.
The Internal Revenue Service is in the
process of a new, private debt collection
effort, where a small segment of taxpayers
who owe back taxes will be contacted by
private sector debt collectors: Scamsters
try a variety of tricks to impersonate the
IRS in hopes of tricking taxpayers into di-
vulging personal or financial information,
or even conning people out of cash. In ad-
dition, all checks collected by debt collec-
tors should be made payable.to the US
Treasury, not companies or individuals. If
you suspect that someone is trying to
scam you, call the IRS at 800-829-1040.
If you or someone you know becomes
the victim of a financial scam, contact the
Federal Trade Commission's Consumer
Response Center at 877-FTC-HELP or vis-
it www.ftc.gov.

Farmers are encouraged to sign up on-
line for the 2007 Direct and Counter-
cyclical Payment Program (DCP) where
they can choose payment options, assign
crop shares, and sign and submit their
contracts. DCP participants can also
view and print out submitted contract
options at any time through the online
process.
The electronic DCP service saves pro-
ducers time, reduces paperwork and
speeds up contract processing at USDA


Residents of Florida may soon be able to
show their support for proper tree care by
purchasing a "Trees Are Cool" specialty li-
cense plate. Money raised by the proposed
plate will be used for tree care education
and research.
The new plate is being pursued on be-
half of the Florida Chapter of the Interna-
tional Society of Arboriculture (Florida
ISA). Michael Dobson, a Tallahassee busi-
nessman and president of Dobson, Craig
and Associates, is working to 'secure signa-
tures requesting a specialty license' plate
for Florida cars using tihe catch phrase
"Trees Are Cool." The Florida Department
'of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles re-
quire 30,000'signatures in order to create a
new specialty license plate.


Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices. It is
available to all producers who are eligi-
ble to participate in DCP and who obtain
Authentication accounts.
For 2007, eligible producers may re-
quest to receive direct advance payments
based on 22 percent of the direct pay-
ment rate for each commodity associated
with the farm. USDA will issue DCP di-
rect advance payments beginning Dec. 1.
For more information on DCP visit
www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA.


Bring identification when voting


As the Nov. 7, General Election ap-
proaches, Floridians should familiarize
themselves with the state's elections re-
quirements. Voters must present a photo
and signature identification at their
polling place to participate in any elec-
tion in Florida. If the photo identification
presented does not have the voter's sig-
nature, an additional piece of identifica-
tion with the voter's signature is re-
quired. Citizens who do not furnish the
required identification at the polling
place can only vote by a provisional bal-
lot.
Identification has been required to vote
in Florida since 1977. In 1998 the Florida
Legislature expanded the ID requirement


to include both a photo and signature.
Any combination of the following identi-
fications may be used to satisfy the signa-
ture and photo requirement:
Florida driver's license; Florida identi-
fication card issued by the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles;
United States passport; employee badge
or identification; buyer's club identifica-
tion; debit or credit card; military identi-
fication; student identification; retire-
ment center identification; neighborhood
association identification; and public as-
sistance identification.
For more information on this and oth-
er election laws visit
www.election.dos.state.fl.us.


"Our trees have always defined who we
are as a southern state. Supporting this li-
cense plate and the work of the Florida ISA
is a great way to support arboriculture in
Florida," said Don Winsett, of Stiles Land-
scape Co. and Chairman of the "Trees Are
Cool" license plate effort. "We are a state
that cares about nature and trees, and we
respect their place in our urban environ- -
ment as well as the aesthetics they provide
our great state."
Florida ISA is asking residents to visit
x-ww.tree-.arecool.conm to sign the 'elec-
tronic petition that has beeI generated to'
sec u re the required signatures.

Trojan heads! Spirit ban-
ners! Painted faces and pep
rallies! These are all parts of
our most important week at
Hamilton County High
School (HCHS). Homecom-
ing week is a week tradi-
tionally set aside for all
classes at the high school to
compete with one another
by showing their Trojan
pride and goofy personali-
ty. Unfortunately our
homecoming week lasted
for only three days, but our
three days were full of Tro-
jan pride and enthusiasm.
The enthusiasm and the
morale of the school was so
high our principal, Mr.
Gene Starr, and some mem-
bers of the staff participat-
ed in the week's events.
Tuesday, "Wacky Tacky
Day," was the beginning of
homecoming week.
"Wacky Tacky Day" was a
full day of costumes, tacky
clothing and mix-matched
colors. Several students
and teachers also got the
wacky bug and dressed for-

that day. Everywhere you
turned there were mixed
matched clothes, crazy
hairstyles, and unrecogniz-
able faces. All classes par-
ticipated and certain ones
competed.
Wednesday was set-aside
for "Class Theme Day." All
classes had to dress accord-
ing to their class theme. The
class themes were: 2012 -Pi-
rates of the Caribbean, 2011
- Crayola Crayons, 2010 -
"Grease," the movie, 2009 -
Farm Animals, 2008 Car-
toon Characters, and 2007 -

to dress up with the class of
2012 'Pirates of the

spirit, but it didn't .end
there; HCHS Trojans had

ing. The day started with a
walk in honor of the pre-
mature babies of the March
of Dimes. Followed by
competitions between
classes with volleyball for
boys and powder puff foot-
ball for the girls. Ending the
day, later that night was a
* pep rally and bonfire show-
ing our school spirit.
We can't forget the day of
all days Homecoming day
itself. It all started that
morning when sponsors,
teams, and classes were do-
ing the finishing touches on
their floats and hot rides to
participate in the parade
held that day. Although the
girls showed their competi-
tiveness and Trojan pride,
they traded it all in to get
dolled up and look elegant
for the Homecoming court.
As the parade began you
heard sirens, music, and
the sounds of hundreds of
people as they enjoyed, the
parade. The kids and par-
ents were cheering and
having so much fun they
were racing to the candy
being thrown out. Al-
though the parade ended,
the varsity football team
had a lot more waiting for
us later that night
Everyone knows all
Homecoming games al-
ways start with the pre-
Sgame presentation of the
Homecoming Court. After
the Court was announced
we all pledged our flag and
waited on the loud noise of
the officials whistle. Then
there was a big BOOoomm-
mm and everyone knew it
was kickoff and the game
begun. It was the Trojans
vs. Eagles! AlthoulLh our
opponents scored the Tro-
jans fought back and con-
;trolled the lead at half time.
At half time, the M \C in-
troduced the Homecoming
Queen candidates and the
.Homecoming Queen. Katie
Allen. Big .congratulations
to her! The Trojans then
came back controlling the
game of 12-10, along with a
successful week of home-
coming.
Hope .to see you next
year same time, same place
for the .2007 Homecoming
week. Go, Trojans!!

The Junior High Lady
Trojans volleyball team has
practiced and played hard
this season. They started
out with only one girl hav-
ing ever played team vol-
leyball and with each game
they have improved. They
have practiced with the Ju-
nior Varsity Team a few
times to learn more about
volleyball fundamentals.
On Oct. 3, they played the
middle school team from
Madison County. They lost
the first game 25-21, then
won the second game 28-
26, they lost the final game
15-10, in this close match.
Micalea Mitchell served for
seven points. No other stats
are kept at this level.
Several of the girls are al-
ready working on their.
overhand serves. Paige
Fenneman is already able to
do' this serve with good
success.
The Junior High Lady


Trojans also lost their final
match against Taylor Coun-
ty on Oct. 12.
These junior high girls-
only had eight games, so
the season was short. If
they had played more
games,' I know that wins
would have followed.
These girls were still suc-
cessful regardl41ess of the fi-
nal scores, in the level of

Really big fish tales


Anyone who goes fishing holds a secret dream that
maybe a once-in-a-lifetime fish awaits. Sometimes it does.,
Because yellow perch (Perca flavescens) are so abun-
dant in rivers, ponds, and lakes, they are one of the species
most often caught in North America, especially by young'
anglers. It is somewhat ironic that yellow perch is also the
category -for the longest-standing world record. In May
1865, Dr. C. Abb6tt landed a four-pound, three-ounce yel-
low perch'in Bordentown, NJ. It has never been topped.
David White landed the all-tackle record for sea-run


rainbow trout on June 22, 1970, on Bell Island, Alas. His
fish weighed 42 pounds and two ounces. He' was eight
years old..
hi Dec. 2005,. Dr. Mark Everard of Great Somerford,
England, set the British record for catching the largest
minnow. His four-and-a-half-inch long and one-half-
ounce monster bested the previous record holder by about'
one tenth of an ounce.
These stories are from The 2007 Old Farmer's Almanac.

S The Nature Conservancy buys 611 acres in Panhandle


The Nature Conservancy bought 611 acres in Florida's
Panhandle from The St. Joe Company. The purchase is a
strategic connector between the Aucilla Wildlife Manage-
ment Area and the Upper St. Marks River Corridor Flori-,
da Forever project.
The Nature Conservancy plans to sell the tract to the
state. The tract is included in the Upper St. Marks River
Corridor an "A"-ranked Florida Forever project.
.Earlier this year, the state acquired 2,589 acres of forest-'
ed wetlands and upland hardwoods along the St. Marks
Ri ver as part of a potential protected greenway that Would


stretch from Florida's capital city to the St. Marks Nation-
al Wildlife Refuge at the Gulf of Mexico. The purchase is
part of this greenway and will further protect water qual-
ity in the St. Marks River and nearby waterways and pre-
serve .native habitat for. gopher tortoises, migrant bird
species and the threatened Florida black bear. St. Joe's on-
going partnership with the state, The Nature Conservan-
cy and the ,Florida Forever program has resulted in the
protection of' more, than 155,000 acres of prime Florida
forests once owned by the company.

CES-
Our weather should be quite nice now and
we don't need to worry about freezes until'
late November. Much of what we do this fall
prepares our gardens for spring.'
It often turns dry this year. When weekly
rainfall isn't received, younger shrubs and.
trees benefit from half to three-quarters inch
of water once a week and newly-installed
plants and beds will probably need watering
every other day. Keep lawns watered
through fall, too, or they may show the dam-
age next spring. Remember, moisture retains
heat. Dry soils do not.
It's time to plant cool-season annuals such
as petunias, dianthus, pansies, flowering
cabbage, kale and snapdragons. Plant in full
sun and. keep watered, especially right after
planting.
If you sow seeds of poppies, larkspur,
sweet peas and bachelor buttons in a sunny
spot, you'll be rewarded in March and April
with tons of flowers. Just work up the soil
and follow package .directions for sowing..
Don't plant the seeds too deep, and keep the,
young, emerging seedlings moist until they
get well established.
Many perennials can be planted now and
enjoyed -for many falls to come. Pineapple
sage has bright red flowers and pineapple
scented foliage. Mexican sage flowers heav-i-
ly with purple and white flowers. Hum-
mingbirds love fthemrn both, as w ell a-s


firespike, with its brilliant red flower spikes,
and cigar plant, which has striking orange
and yellow flowers. Philippine violet has an
incredible number of lavender-purple flow-
ers in autumn that blanket the ground as
they fall. Mexican mint marigold has bright
gold flowers and great tarragon-flavored fo-
liage.
Plant spring-flowering bulbs now, too.
The best repeat bloomers are the smaller-
flowered narcissus bulbs. Snowflakes or
snowdrops are also fairly reliable.
Cool-season vegetables to plant now in-
dude beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauli-
flower, Chinese cabbage, collards, kohlrabi,
mustard, bulbing onions, radishes, spinach,
strawberries, and turnips. Plant herbs such
as parsley, sage, thyme, and rosemary.
Fall is a much better time than spring to
plant shrubs that overwinter in North Flori-
da. They will have all winter to grow roots
'before theheat returns, and will give you a
spring show.
Select and plant new trees now; too.
Among the showiest trees for fall leaf colors
are Florida maple, crape myrtle, dogwood,
hickory, Japanese maple, black gum, Brad-
ford pear, red maple, sassafras. Shumard
oak, Southern red oaks, sourwvood, and
sweetgum.
Use fallen pine needles and leaves as
mulch around trees and shrubs. Or create
self-mulching areas, especially in shaded ar-
eas \\ here the grass doesn t grow well any-
way. Three great groundcovers to plant are
English i\-v. mondo grass, and liriope.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


The past week has been
an interesting one for me,
visiting with some friends
from other days through
the present. On Sunday I
had a special visit with
Ruth (Caldwell) Vann, a
great lady; she remembers
things of yester-years (I
don't know if that is in the
dictionary but I have heard
it as an expression). In 1970
she was a nurse at Baptist
Hospital in Jacksonville. As
a patient there, having had
surgery for a ruptured disc,
it was meaningful to me to
receive a visit from her, be-
ing far from home. Martha
Mitchell (her sister) had
told her I was there; she
checked on me; I am sure
she brought much cheer to
all the patients with whom
she came in contact. She
talked about the people she
worked with, namely a
doctor who she worked
with, who evidently was as
caring and compassionate
as Ruth.
We learned recently, that
Jeff Burnam had a recur-
rence of his former prob-
lem; he was rushed by heli-
copter to Jacksonville Mon-
day afternoon. Jeff had
been stabilized; all the fam-
ily other than Roxanne, had
returned to Jasper. We pray
for a quick recovery and
hope that he will be able to
return to North Hamilton.
He is greatly missed when
he's not around. The Bur-
nams are getting ready to
build a new home on 41
North. They're hoping to
get started with the con-
struction soon.
Ben Vann and wife, Don-


na, of Jacksonville came by
Jasper on their way home
from vacation in Ten-
nessee. Donna returned
home; Ben stayed to spend
the week with his mother,
Ruth Vann.
Tollbert and Janie Vann
and Joe Walter and Sally
Sapp spent last week in
Bronson, Mo. They went on
a tour with Madison Trav-
el, Fantasy Coach Line, and
had a busy and fun trip.
A fun trip was enjoyed
by the "Local Motorcycle
Gang," which included Jay
and Diane Papesca of
Jasper; Rodney and Kathy
Strickland of Statenville,
Ga; Ricky and Janice Jordan
of Lake City; Terry Mc-
Daniel, Clyde McGhin, Ken
Blanton and Sandy Ferrell,
all of Jasper. The "gang"
left at the crack of dawn on
Saturday, Oct. 7, and re-
turned on Saturday, Oct.
14. They rode the entire
Blue Ridge Parkway to
Lexington, Va., across into
West Va. The leaves in Vir-
ginia were "absolutely
breath-taking;" as one de-
scribed, "it was like swim-
ming in gold."
At one point on the Blue
Ridge Parkway,. the fog
was so thick the group
pulled off to ,stop for a
while in the parking lot of a
Walgreen's drug store. In
North Carolina, a lady
came up to them and want-
ed to wrap her arms
around them and pray for
them. This convinced them
that they should stop for
the day, which they did.
(Aren't people wonderful?)
They did have, a safe trip,

A great lady who will be
missed is being memorial-
ized. Frances Stevenson
passed away after a long
battle with cancer. Frances
and her husband, Buel
Stevenson, who passed
away shortly after they
moved to Jasper, had trav-
eled from Florida to Alaska
and many other places with
his work, and came back to
Jasper to make their home.
I never knew her husband,
but Frances was a most in-
teresting and lovable lady.
She will be greatly missed
by all who knew her.
Frances was a Hackle, and
many of you knew her in
her early years; I only knew
her for a short time. In the
time I knew her, I learned
much of the past of people
and places in Jasper and of
other places where she. had
lived.
Frances was true friend
and an inspiration to any-
one with whom she came
in contact, she will be
missed by all who had the
pleasure of her, acquain-
tance.
At a recent meeting at
First Presbyterian Church, I
realized how busy the next
weeks and months are go-
ing to be. It isn't even Hal-
loween as this is being writ-
ten, but as we go into the
stores, Christmas is already
showing up. Halloween,
Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas all seem to flow to-
gether. I hope we can at
least slow down enough to
enjoy each day, week,
month and year guess my
age is showing. We need to
take time to enjoy the mo-
ments, hours and days.
Hope you have a good day,

White Springs

^ttI C ^ rd


By Johnny Bullard


The autumnal season is
upon us. Leaves are turn-
ing and falling, the morn-
ings and the evenings have
a chill, pumpkins are bright
orange, and you can begin
to smell burning leaves and
the smoke from campfires.
Janet Moses entertained a
number of young people at
her historic home located
on the Woodpecker Route,
as she held her annual
pumpkin painting activity.
About ten .young folks
painted all kinds of humor-
ous and scary faces on their
big orange pumpkins and
then enjoyed a wide array
of holiday treats. Among
those in attendance were
Jesse Pearson, Laura Leigh
Bullard and Brittany
Beauchamp, all of White
Springs; Sarah Katherine
and Caroline Lewis, and
Emma Sambey of Lake
City. Later in the evening, a
whole host of Janet's
grandchildren came in
from Lake City. I don't


know who had a "bigger
time," the adults or the chil-
dren. It was a wonderful
way to celebrate fall.
.Speaking of Janet Moses,
she is one of a select group
of Florida artists who have
been chosen to display
their works at the "House
of Blues" for Walt Disney
World. This display will
take place in early Novem-
ber. We congratulate Janet
on this well-deserved hon-
or. I do so hate that her
shop is closed in White
Springs. I miss her presence
in our town so very much.
It is my fervent hope that
she will open something in
the WB Feagle House on
Wesson Avenue very soon.
Don't forget some impor-
tant dates that are coming
up very soon. The Town of
White Springs will cele-
brate Halloween and trick
or treating on Tuesday, Oct.
31, from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m.
Parents of small children
need to accompany them


on the Trick or Treat route.
Trick or Treaters need to
observe caution when
crossing streets and stay on
the sidewalks. If a porch
light is, not on, don't go up
to that house. Also, if you
are six axe handles high
and shaving, you don't
need to be holding a bucket
in your hand and trick or
treating. Trick or treating is
for young children (if
you're past sixth grade you
are too old). Trick or
treaters, be sure and say
"thank you" when some-
one gives you a treat, and,
above all, have a good time.
This is a special time in
your life, enjoy it. Happy
Halloween.
Other upcoming fall'
events in the Town of
White Springs include Rur-
al Folklife Days at Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park, Friday and Sat-
urday, Nov. 2 and 3, from
10 a.m. till 4 p.m.. and the
White Springs Harvest Fes-
tival on Saturday, Nov. 4,
from 9 a.m. till 5 -p.m.
around the Nature and
Heritage Tourism Center.
The Fall Festival at South
Hamilton Elementary will
be held on Friday, Nov. 3,
from 1 p.m. till dismissal.
On Sunday, Nov. 5,
Homecoming will be cele-
brated at White Springs
United Methodist Church.


The morning worship ser-
vice will begin at 10:45 a.m.
with Reverend Bill Peeler
conducting the service. Fol-
lowing the morning wor-
ship service, a covered dish
luncheon will be served in
the church fellowship hall.
A nice addition is being
made on the Methodist Fel-
lowship Hall, and we are
all happy about this new
addition.
Pastor Appreciation Day
will be celebrated at First
Baptist Church in White
Springs, on Sunday, Oct.
29, during the morning
worship service. The
church will honor Rev. Ron
Thompson and his wonder-
ful wife, Jeanie, beginning
at 11 a.m. A covered dish
luncheon will be served in
the fellowship hall follow-
ing the morning worship
service.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Preston
Stormant of White Springs.
He was a lifetime resident
of the White Springs area
and was well known. Mr.
Stormant leaves to grieve
his passing a large host of
family members and
friends. He will be missed
by many in our area, in-
cluding me. He was a good
neighbor and a good
friend. The family has the
prayers of our community.
Happy belated birthday


wishes are extended to Vir-
ginia Daniel, Marlene
Shaw, and Phyllis H.
Hunter. Also, a happy
birthday goes to Delores
Howell and Bunnye
Browne. We wish all these
nice ladies many more hap-
py birthdays.
For those who don the
Orange and Blue or the Red
and Black, this is the Flori-
da vs. Georgia weekend in
Jacksonville. There is al-
ways a. tremendous
amount of excitement sur-
rounding this game, and I
have attended it many
times. Win or lose, it's al-
ways fun visiting with
friends before and after the
game. On this one, I won't
stay neutral, I'll simply say
"go, Gators."
I understand that the
Magnolia Fest at Spirit of
the Suwannee this past
weekend was' well attend-
ed. Mag Fest really isn't a
great venue for family en-
tertainment, but there are
so many events at Spirit of
the Suwannee that are. If
you want to find out more
about Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park, go on your
computer to www.musi-
cliveshere. James Cornett
does a fabulous job offering
entertainment for a large
cross section of music
lovers.

Pre-diabetes can be reversed with diet and lifestyle changes


Twenty-five percent of
Medicaid resources are
used to treat just one dis-
ease out of hundreds, and
the numbers keep rising, as
more and more people in all
age groups develop the dis-
ease. Considering that dia-
betes is a largely pre-
ventable disease, this infor-
mation is distressing.
Type II diabetes, general-
ly speaking, is a lifestyle
disease. It comes from how
people eat and what they
do. People do have a genet-
ic predisposition that makes
them more or less likely to
develop the disease, but. the
illness won't develop with-
out the right conditions.
Subtle and gradual
changes in the American
lifestyle over the last 50
years have set most people
up with circumstances that
put their lives in that rut:
they eat poorly and in
greater quantities.and their
lives are geared more, and
more toward 'sedentary
past-times. It's easy to slide
inexorably toward diabetes
without even noticing it,
and many people are doing
just that.
But with a little more
awareness among 'the pub-.
lic and medical profession-
als, the tide could turn on
this disease.
The term, "pre-diabetes,"
refers to a person who has
the complex of symptoms
that indicate they're on-their
way to developing diabetes.
When a person is in the pre-
diabetic state, they've got-

ten higher-than-normal in-
sulin levels because they've
become resistant to the hor-
mone that helps metabolize
energy.
Insulin levels can be test-
ed easily. When insulin lev-
els are elevated and the oth-
er conditions of pre-dia-
betes are present, they can
be treated and stop the dis-
ease from developing.
Insulin levels rise years
before abnormalities in
blood sugar develop. If a
patient is riot specifically
getting tested for it, that in-
sulin resistance and their
pre-diabetic condition may
not show up in an exam.
What can be done to idern-


tify the problem and possi-
bly forestall disaster? If
overweight, people should
ask their doctor to test their
insulin levels, especially if
there's a family history of
diabetes.
Anyone who has pre-dia-
betes and who is insulin re-
sistant, should know that
it's a reversible condition,
and most of the time, it can
be turned around without
the use of medication, just
through diet and exercise.
The most significant dif-
ferences will come from
changing the way they eat.
Replacing processed foods
and added dietary sugar
sources with whole grains,

proteins and fresh fruits
and vegetables will do more
to improve the condition
than cutting calorie count in
half. .
Many overweight people
reach a point where they
just accept that they're go-
ing to be heavy. As an aes-
thetic issue, they may not
like the way they look; but
they come to -accept that
their appearance doesn't
bother them enough that
they're willing to make .the
adjustments: necessary to
change that.
When it comes to how


they feel, that's another
matter. People often regard
their weight issue with in-
spired seriousness when
they see how it's affecting
their health, and many.
times, that's the impetus for
a patient starting to exer-
Scise, adjusting the diet. and
developing a real. aware-
ness about keeping disease
at bay.. ,
With simple conclusive-
testing possible for pre-dia-
bete., more people could
get started sooner on turn-,
ing the tide on this debilitat-
ing, and often fatal disease.

Bush, Principal
Nancy Kantro, our new
pre-k teacher, invites par-
ents to stop by and visit the
classroom.
Mrs. Selph's Kinder-
garteners are enjoying the
letters of the week. This
week the letter is Tt. We
have had Tt treats to eat,
activities and worksheets
to tackle. Next .week our
letter is Pp, and we will be
doing a mini unit on
pumpkins. We are study-
ing numbers six through
10. Parents, please read to
your child because it will
help them develop a love
for reading.
Mrs. Williams kinder-
garten class had a busy
week learning the letters
Tt.. We did learning activi-
ties, writing, letter identifi-
cation, copying, making
and coloring patterns, as
well as making a book
What Patterns Do You See?
First grade has been en-
joying using dominoes in,
SUMS math this week. We
have been busy practicing
basic addition and subtrac-
tion. In reading we have
been working on initial
blends.
Parents, we thank you so
much for letting us use the
scarecrows for decorations.
We have enjoyed them.
Please feel free .to take
them home now so you can
enjoy them.
Don't forget to send in
any spare, change for Relay
For Life. We are eagerly
awaiting to see Mr..Bush,
get creamed with' a pie.
IThe .big- day is Monday,
Oct. 30. Look out, Mr.
Bush.
Second grade's latest fo-
cus is on Scie'nce. We are
learning the parts of a
plant: leaves, 'stem, and
roots. We are building our
science vocabulary


through exploring word
meanings.
Third grade has been
very busy this. week.
We've been very excited
for Greg Hicks' visit. He is
conducting an Embryology
unit with our class. We
have 16. eggs in the incuba-
tor and we're learning a lot
about how the eggs are
made. We also had 30
caterpillars that have de-
veloped their cocoons. We
are waiting for them to
emerge. Such excitement!
We really are enjoying Sci-
ence.
We continue going to the
computer lab to work on
our reading and math
skills. Our student of the
week is Maelin Bass.
Maelin is really enjoying
working our math riddles.
She always has her hand
up with an answer. She
loves to color with her
friends. Keep working
hard, Maelin.
Mrs. Howell's fourth
graders discovered six
monarch caterpillars in our
school butterfly garden.
We carefully observed
each one forming its beau-
tiful green with golden
dots chrysalis then emerge
ten days later as orange
and black monarchs. The
class gathered around and
clapped as each regal but-
terfly fluttered off into, the'
Florida sunshine this past
Tuesday.,
Thanks to the following
moms for attending, PTO:
Jennifer Glover, Lori Stor-
mant, and Kim Steichen.
South Hamilton will
sponsor a parade in honor
of all veterans oni Wednies-
day, Nov. 8 at 1:30 p.m.
The parade will 'begin at
the Ogburn ball field and'
travel up Hwy 41 'to the
tourism center. If any vet-
erans or active 'military
would like to ride in our,
parade, contact the school


i~s~i


of Emergency Manage-.
ment, who critiqued the
drill. Through their assis-
tance and efforts, we were
able to recognize problems
that need to be corrected
before our next drill. We
appreciate them taking
their time to come to White


Springs. and lend their ex-
pertise for the safety of our
students.
Not long ago the Hamil-
ton County Public Health
Department (HCHPD) ad-
vised us that they would
be providing some more
playground equipment for


SHE. That equipment has
arrived and will be assem-
bled and installed by the
district maintenance. We
again thank them for their
generosity.
Have a great week. See
you at the parade (wear
some red, white, and blue).


at 397-4400 or 397-4403.
Also, South Hamilton
will host a Veteran's Day
Luncheon for our White
Springs veterans on
Wednesday, Nov. 8, at
11:45 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Veterans, call and make
your reservations to attend
this luncheon in your hon-
or.
The Veterans Day pro-
gram was spearheaded by
Delores Howell, fourth
grade teacher at SHE. She
has coordinated the activi-
ties and worked tirelessly
to honor the veterans
through this event. We ap-
preciate her patriotism and
concern for the veterans
and her dedication to teach
our students the sacrifice
of our military men and
women.
You know, there were
only two defining forces
who have ever offered to
die for us: Jesus Christ and
the American GI. Christ of-
fered himself as a sacrifice
for our sins and the Amer-
ican solider has offered
himself/herself to die for
our freedom.
I guess the most dis-
cussed issue at SHE this
week is our new loading
procedure in the after-
noon. While the parents
have been very willing and
very patient, I'm sure it has
been cause for some frus-
tration.. We recognize that
there are some wrinkles
that need to be ironed out
and we are working on it.
We greatly appreciate your
support and cooperation.
I try to recognize all the.
folks that work so hard to
support and help SHE.
One of those is Gary
Weaver and the GTE Cred-
it Union. Mr. Weaver has
called our school and of-
fered us all sorts of office
supply items to us on more
than one occasion. I'm not.
sure I. have adequately
thanked him and GTE. So,
Mr. Weaver, please forgive
mie and know that'$SHE
does appreciate GTECU's
support of SHE.
Recently, SHE conduct-
ed a bomb threat response
drill. I would especially
like to thank Roger Ehlert
and Joanna Griffin from
the Hamilton County Sher-
iff's Department Division

Shands, 93.7 K-Country


secure big names for



benefit concert series


When Country Music Award-winning,
Grammy-nominated artist Brad Paisley takes
the stage in Gainesville next spring, he will
be doing more than crooning "The World"
and other hit songs. He will be raising money
for kids in need. Paisley, along with singer,
songwriter Phil Vassar, has committed to per-
forming in the first annual 93.7 K COUN-
TRY Jamboree Hopes & Dreams Benefit
Concert for Shands Children's Hospitals.
93.7 K COUNTRY and Shands HealthCare
have partnered to bring the artists to the
Alachua County Fairgrounds on Saturday,
March 31, 2007. During the daylong event,


15,000 concertgoers will be treated to perfor-
mances from a total of five acts, three of
which will be announced at a later date.
"All of us at 93.7 K COUNTRY are very
excited about being part of this. We feel it
will be the biggest single-day music event in
the history of North Central Florida," said
93.7 K COUNTRY General Manager Jim
Robertson. "I think attendees will find the
ticket value is incredible, with the lineup pro-
viding one hit song after another."
All proceeds from the concert will benefit
Shands Children's Hospitals. Shands Health-
Care Director of Development Michael Jes-


* sup said they hope to raise more
than $400,000 to enhance medical
programs that provide world-class
care for children who rely on Shands.
"Shands has a long tradition of providing
hope through outstanding pediatric health-
care," Jessup said. "We are recognized as a
leader in areas such as pediatric lung disease,
diabetes, cardiology, cancer, neurology, ge-
netics and organ transplantation. Revenues
from this concert will allow Shands to contin-
ue to offer a better quality of life to sick chil-
dren and their families."
The concert is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.,


evening. Tickets will be available for pur-
chase through Ticketmaster beginning Satur-
day, Dec. 2, at 10 a.m. A'dvance-purchase
tickets will be $55. Tickets purchased at the
door will cost $70.
More information about the 93.7 K COUN-
TRY Jamboree is available on-line at

DEP launches mercury switch recovery from scrap vehicles Paralounge


48 second removal process

can prevent pollution


The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
recently announced a
statewide initiative to remove
mercury switches from vehi-
cles during automotive recy-
cling. Part of a national pro-
gram approved by the US
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) in August
2006, the National Vehicle
Mercury Switch Recovery
Program (NVMSRP) is de-
signed to remove mercury-
containing light switches
from scrap vehicles before
they are flattened, shredded
and melted to make new
steel.
"Vehicle iec) cler- and dis-
mantlers in Florida can play


a critical role in reducing a
significant source of mercury
air emissions," said DEP
Deputy Secretary for Regula-
tory Programs and Energy
Mike Sole. "A potential envi-
ronmental hazard can be
avoided in the mere seconds
it takes to remove a conve-
nience lighting switch from
scrap vehicles prior to recy-
cling them."
This week, DEP sent letters
to Florida vehicle recyclers
and dismantlers encouraging
them to take part in this im-
portant environmental initia-
tive. As part of the recovery
pio'igim. (he End of Life Ve-
hicle Solutions Corporation
(ELVS), an organization cre-


ated by the auto industry, will
send collection buckets to
Florida vehicle recyclers and
dismantlers that participate in
the mercury switch collection
program. ELVS will arrange
for the mercury switches col-
lected at designated business-,
es to be shipped and recycled
at no cost.
Pellet-sized mercury
switches can be found in
convenience lights in trunks
and hoods, as well as some
anti-lock brakes of certain
pre-2002 vehicles. National-
ly, it is estimated that there
are 35 million automotive
mercury switches currently in
vehicles today.
Recognizing the environ-
mental and health hazards of
mercury, DEP has conducted
extensive research into the
sources of mercury emissions


and instituted advanced tech-
nology controls, leading to a
decrease in mercury emis-
sions from major emission
sources over the last ten
years. Removing mercury
switches from scrap vehicles
prior to recycling them can


further eliminate mercury
from the environment.

the mercury switch recovery
program, visit

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every woman
should be aware of certain risk factors for developing breast cancer
which include growing older, family history of breast cancer, early
menstruation age and late-onset menopause. You can control your risk
rate by limiting alcohol intake not to exceed one drink per day,
maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and undergoing
regular screenings like mammograms and breast exams.

Line would burn off the reels
at a rate and duration you'd
swear something would give
way or melt down. It took at
least 15 minutes to bring the
six to 10 pound fish to the
boat.
For Curtis, it sometimes
took 20 minutes or more. Mul-
tiple hooks were the norm
sometimes requiring us to do
the docy-doe dance to keep
the lines straight. It was an ex-
hausting pandemonium.
Our forearms
throbbed after se\-
eral hook-ups.
|et at the next
chance, te
would d do it all


over again. I was going to turn
us around back to the fish after
Curtis landed his forever-
fought Bonita. "Hey, ya'll look
at that!" I said before starting
the motors. There was a wall
of feeding Bonita, at least a
;quarter mile long, coming at
us sounding like a train.
"Let's go get us some of
that" said Curtis. And we did.
Charles, some how, caught a
huge blue runner amongst the
Bonita. I took it and free lined,
it off the'leeward side using a
4/0 grouper out fit as a what,
the heck bait. I'put the clicker
on. In less than three minutes
the clicker buzzed. I grabbed
the double over pole just as a
six foot shark came complete-
ly out of the wvater marlin
style. The line was cut instant-
ly. -
-"Did you see that'?" I asked
Charles;
Judging by Charles face and
him trimming up a whole lady'


fish bait, he was well aware of
what just happened and in-
tended to catch it.
Evan and Curtis were both
battling Bonita and loving
every moment.
I joined in the fun. It is
amazing how far and how fast
the fish would run with our
baits. We would fight them
back in only for it to happen
again, again and again until it
became ridiculous. When I fi-
nally got my fish in I took a
break.
I a as ha% ing fun

Charles as hold-
ing his grouper pole
intently.
"What's going
on?" I asked.
"I've been getting
a bite" he replied. "I
beer check my bait"

We could see the tat-.

up through the %water. As
it neared the surface an
eight-foot hammer, head
shark came after it. It
boiled' away a foot or little
more from the boat. It was so
close, I stepped back.
"What was it. what was it?""
Curtis questioned, while fight-;
ing Boita niumber umpteen.
Charles and I were explaining
as Charles let the bait back
.down, and I was hurriedly
twisting a wire leader out of.
No. 9 wire and cutting a Boni-
ta in half. I literally tossed the
bait in the water by hand. I
was hoping ... Charles said,
"He's after it,'! referring to his
bait. In a second, he. struck.
The thick grouper pole arched
under the strain and line
peeled off a firm drag. "Evarn!
Put on a fighting belt and
come here son," Charles de-
manded. .
I reeled in my gear, took the
bait off and stowed it away,
neat. Evan is thin compared to
the rest of us, shall we say plus
sized gentlemen. The transfer
of the pole came with a jerk-


ing and pulling action.
"Keep him in the boat!"
Charles was right there be-
sides his son. I cleared the
clutter from the front of the
boat. Curtis was wrapped up
in the final minutes of his
Bonita number umpteen and
one. The shark may pull Evan'
all the way around the boat in,
the mean time.
When Curtis got his fish in,
I turned the motors on to. keep
the fight off the stem quarters.
Evan would pump and grind
to gain a few yards of line
only to have more line pull off
to his chagrin.
Curtis took over the coach-
ing for his nephew. His advice
was on track and helpful to
Evan, who was under duress.
It was after seven in the
evening. The sun was falling
out of the sky. The backdrop
was beautiful but darkness
was soon be upon us. I called
into any radio in Steinhatchee.
"Mule Kicker". responded. I
told him the situation and
asked if he could call my wife
to let her know we were fine
but would more than likely be
in after dark. He was happy to
make the call for me. I was
happy he was there.
Evan was holding up well
after the first 15 minutes, but
he was under a constant heavy
load.
Another 10 minutes passed.
The shark cruised just under
the surface from starboard to
port. It was as if he was check-
ing out what he was fighting.
The shark dove, taking line at
will. The rod shuttered up and
down violently in the next
minute. Evan stumbled back-
wards. The taunt line had part-
ed. Without a steel leader the
fight lasted longer than we all
expected. Evan had fought his
largest shark and fought it
ever very well.
.It was a 20 minute ride' to
"the first channel marker. We
re-lived the fight pla3 by play.
We were in the triVf0durifii
the last glimmer o0' light. We
finished cleaning fish around
9 p.m. It was decided the fish
fry was best suited for the next
Seeing.
I came in the house. "How
was your day?".' my wife,
Gina, asked.
"I found what I didn't know
I was looking for, the joy of
fishing" I said.
Thanks for taking your time
to read this: Take care of your-
self and your tackle.

The contentment which
fills the mind of the angler

wetsuit and drysuit is that with a
drysuit, the warmth and protec-
tion comes by staying totally dry,
whether in the water or out. A
wetsuit works on the principle
that even though wet, body heat
will not, escape, through neo-
prehe. Any water in the suit will
warm up. Overall, a wetsuit on its
own may be lighter and more
flexible, if you don't mind the ini-
tial cold feeling when falling in the
water.

Health to Heart





Knowing when an aging relative needs help


For many people, independence is something they fall in love with the
very'first time they experience it. Whether it's a teenager left home
alone for the first time or a college student finally leaving the nest, that
first taste of independence can be a wonderful thing, something, most
people want to maintain the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, as people
grow older, independence can often be a detriment to their well being,
leaving their loved ones in a difficult position with respect to their care.
Deciding to put a parent or an elderly relative in a care facility is
never an easy decision, as chances are that person will want to remain
independent. You may also feel guilty about the decision wondering if
the facility can provide the best care.
To help you make the correct call, here are some things to consider,
courtesy of AARP, that should help you rest easier with whatever you
decide:
Physical health. This is typically one of the more decisive factors in
whether or not a nursing home is the right move for your loved one.
Chronic disease, such as diabetes or arthritis, can greatly limit an
elderly person's independence, sometimes making it impossible for
them to live on their own. If you cannot care for them adequately.
enough, a nursing home or another facility might be your only option.
In addition, heart disease, stroke or cancer can also rob loved ones of
their independence, meaning a nursing home might be the best option
for sufferers of these diseases as well.
Mental health. Typically, Alzheimer's is a chief concern for
relatives of the elderly. If your loved one appears disoriented most of
the time or has regular feelings of confusion, professional help might be
the best decision. Also, bouts with depression or anxiety can be difficult
to deal with if you're not trained to do so. While these conditions do not
mandate you put your loved one in a home, it may be necessary if
someone cannot be available round-the-clock to provide care.
Medication use. Pay close attention to your loved one's medication
routine. If he's forgetting to take his medication or taking too much, or
i even failing to remember if he
Maimr gytook it or not, independence is no
longer a legitimate option. Too

elderly people can get up and go like they used to, exhibiting difficulty
with some of the more routine tasks a day presents could be a sign that
help is necessary. Struggles with bathing, dressing or even using the
toilet indicate a dwindling ability to live independently. Similarly, such
struggles might leave you worried about your loved one's ability to
cook and clean for themselves, which could lead to tragedy. Similar to
other areas of concern, this should be looked at subjectively. If your
loved one still has his mental health but might be struggling with some.
of the aforementioned tasks, perhaps having him move in with a
younger relative or hiring someone to help him can help you avoid the
nursing-home scenario. If no such support system is realistic, a home
could be your best move.
Home/community safety. Unfortunately, the elderly are often
targets of crime, and are therefore vulnerable. If your loved one's
neighborhood is not safe, moving them, be it to a home or a new place,
is a good idea. Also, if your loved one's home requires upkeep that they
are not able to physically do anymore, it could indicate they're not safe
living alone.
Support systems. No one should live in isolation, especially the
elderly. If your loved one has a strong support system of family and
friends that he regularly interacts with, that could be a sign that he's
capable of continuing to live independently. While those friends and
family should contact your loved one regularly and stop in to help out
whenever possible, if your loved one is maintaining an active social life
he could be all right staying where he is.
Finances. Finances often play a significant role in what to do with
an elderly loved one. If your loved one is capable of living on what he
has and isn't exhibiting any significant problems such as forgetting to
pay bills or regularly paying them late, finance concerns should provide
no reason to move him. However, if your loved one cannot live on his
current income or might have problems doing so down the road,
consider your options. One thing to note is that nursing home prices are
high, so consulting a financial advisor to help you is-a good road to
take.
While these areas are a good place to start, they should not dictate
what you do nor should you ignore other possible areas of concern. To
learn more about dealing with the elderly, visit the AARP Web site at
