Trojans


News

By Jonathan Banks


Trojan News is back
from its holiday break and
I hope you all are ready to
move those eyes and read.
This week in the Trojan
News we're going to be
discussing Thanksgiving
break, the school's staff
breakfast/birthday cele-
bration, and the Culinary
Arts Thanksgiving dinner
(brunch). I'm writing this
on a full stomach of turkey,
so please enjoy.
I hope everyone ate well
and had a turkey-lurkey,
happy Thanksgiving last
Thursday. I sure did and as
you already know I got full
of turkey dressing and the
whole traditional shebang.
Here's a little fact in history
for you if you don't already
know, but at the first
Thanksgiving day they
didn't have turkey like we
do now; the pilgrims and
Indians had mostly meat
from the sea, such as lob-
ster, shrimp and fish.
Before the Thanksgiving
break students and staff
had a little problem at
school, which was some-


what kind of exciting to
some students; however,
teachers had some of their
plans ruined. The power
went out! Having the great
staff and administration
we have, they got the
school back running again.
Some of you may know
and some may not know
about this but every month
on the second Tuesday at
8:15 a.m., something spe-
cial happens for the HCHS
staff. It's the monthly staff
meeting and after taking
care of business, Mr. Starr
recognizes all staff who cel-
ebrate birthdays during the
month.
One more shocker for
you all guess who bakes
the cakes? Surprise, our
very own Mr. Starr, the
school principal, heats hisi
oven and bakes the cakes
for the staff! This was a sur-
prise to me and probably to
you as well but, I'm sure
they all are delicious.
' In addition to the birth-
day celebration on Nov. 14,
the Student Government
organization and their.


sponsor, Ms. Clayton, took
out their aprons and
recipes and brought break-
fast dishes to school. This
awesome gathering took
place in the HCHS Media
Center before the staff
meeting. I'm sure all the
teachers and staff enjoyed
gathering together and eat-
ing a wonderfully pre-
pared meal and birthday
cake.
Also, the new Culinary
Arts teacher Mrs. Shauna
Adams-Farries gave her
students quite a surprise
last Monday. I myself be-
ing part of her first period
class was very astonished
when she announced we
were having a Thanksgiv-
ing dinner (brunch). We all
enjoyed turkey, ham,
dressing, croissants, green
beans, mac & cheese; and
for dessert we had cookies,
brownies, and sweet pota-
toes with marshmallows.
Not only did the students
enjoy it but obviously some
school board administra-
tors who stopped by had
the same feelings.
Well, that's all for Trojan
News this week. I hope
everyone had a safe and
great Thanksgiving last
week. I'm Jonathan Banks
and I'm wishing you all a
safe weekend and until
next time in Trojan News,
"go, Trojans!"


New Hope Baptist Church

Jack McGhin, John Bembry, Parke Dees,
Wallace Jack Dees, Dan McGhin, Howard

A lot more fun than video games


By Dwain Walden
Several times in the past
week I have received calls
from alleged investment
brokers who acted like we
played softball together on
the weekends. And I sup-
pose they thought I was
born last night or at least
right after lunch the day
before.
They began their conver-
sations by saying that my
name had been given to
them as an active investor,
and they had a hot tip just
for me. So sometimes
when people mess with
me I like to mess right
back. When the fourth one
called, I was ready.
It went like this:
"Hello, Dwain. I'm
Stephen and your name
was forwarded to me as an
active investor."
So I said, "Hi, Stephen.
What's this about?"
"Well," says Stephen,
"I've got ..." and I inter-
rupted him there.
"Stephen, I didn't catch
your last name," I said.
"It's Graham," he said.
And he began to contin-
ue 'his spiel when I inter-
rupted him again.,
"Graham? I was at Geor-
gia State with a Graham.
Larry Graham. You got. a
brother named Larry?"
"Uh, no," he said. "I
don't have any brothers,
just a sister. Now about
what I want to offer you
today ...."
I interrupted again.
"Hey, don't tell me you
are Cindy Graham's little
brother. She worked at a'
pub off Cheshire Bridge
Road in Atlanta called the
Hoffbraugh House. Boy,
they had a guy there who
picked a mean flat-top
Martin. Sounded like
James Taylor. It was just
him and a bass player. By
the way, did Cindy ever
get that mole taken off her'
forehead?"
At this point Stephen
sounded like an air-cooled


outboard motor with wa-
ter in the carburetor.
"Say, what kind of
stocks are you selling to-
day," I asked.
"Petroleum," he said.
"Would that be oil or jel-
ly," I asked. "I would
think oil because I'm not
aware of anything that
would cause Vaseline to
be a hot stock right now,
although there are quite a
number of politicians out
there who must feel
mighty chaffed after Nov.
7."
"It's oil," Mr. Walden.
He had abandoned my
given name. Folksy went
out the window.
"Oh, oil," I said. "I just
bought some today."
"You just bought oil to-
day?" he asked. "Do you
mind me asking which one
and what you paid per
share?"
I almost giggled at that
point.
"Oh, I didn't buy it in
shares. I bought it in
quarts," I said. "If I recall,
it was less than two dollars
a quart. It was 30-weight
Havoline. Let me recom-
mend it to you if you've
got something with a
small engine. I could prob-
ably have gotten it a little
.cheaper if I had shopped
around, but I figured what
I would save on oil, I
would lose on time and
gas.
I heard this sigh, the
kind you hear when you
think a lecture is about
over, but it's not.
"Mr. Walden, can I get
back to you? I've got two
lines blinking and my sec-
retary is on vacation."
So I said, "Just call me
Dwain, Stevaroo. And I
understand completely.
I'll be in most of the after-
noon. And Stevey, tell
!Cindv I said hello. But
do nt" mention that thing
about the mole. And re-
member, 30-weight Havo-
line if you've got a lawn


Dwain Walden


mower or a four-wheeler."
So Stephen didn't get
back with me that after-
noon. In fact, it's been five
days and not a word.
But today, Julie called.
"Hi Julie. I didn't get
your last name."
She paused. "It's Ness-
man."
"Hey," I said. "I knew a
Nessman when I was in
college. Paul Nessman. He
was the bass player at the
Hoffbraugh House off
Cheshire Bridge Road."
The phone clicked. I
guess her desk is right
next to old Stevaroony's.
And to think that people
spend thousands of dol-
lars on video games when
real life is much more fun.

PUBLIC


NOTICE
The Town of White
Springs hereby gives no-
tice that effective Monday,
December. 4, 2006, the
Suwannee River Wayside.
Park and Boat ramp locat-
ed on US 41 will be closed

Over 50 million Americans provide emo-
tional, financial, nursing, social, homemak-
ing and other services to loved ones who
are frail, chronically ill or disabled. Family
caregivers can provide care as much as 24
hours a day, seven days per week.
Whether provided daily or intermittently,
the physical and emotional demands on
caregivers often take a toll on the caregiver
and can put caregivers at greater risk for
health problems, such as infectious dis-
ease, colds, flu and depression.
Public education and awareness are key
elements in providing assistance to those
who give so much by caring for their loved
ones at home. This year the Mid-Florida
Area Agency on Aging (MFAAA) is sup-
porting the collaborative efforts between
the Administration on Aging and the Na-


"rm



tional Family Caregivers Association in
recognizing November as National Family
Caregiver Month. This year's theme is "be-
lieve in yourself, protect your health, reach
out for help."
One resource available to provide assis-
tance to family caregivers is the National
Caregiver Support Program. The National
Caregiver Support Program provides in-
formation, education, support groups,
respite and other services for caregivers of
persons 60 years of age or older and grand-
parents 60 years of age or older raising a
grandchild.
For information about these and other
services available to assist family care-
givers in your area, contact the Elder
L Helpline at 800-96-Elder or 800-963-5337,
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


IRS announces standard amounts


for Telephone Tax Refunds


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS). has
announced the standard amounts that
most long-distance customers can use to
figure their telephone tax refund., These
amounts, which range from $30 to $60, will
enable millions of individual taxpayers to
request the telephone tax refund without
having to dig through old telephone bills.
In general, anyone who paid the 'long-
distance telephone tax will get the refund
on their 2006 federal income tax return.
This includes individuals, businesses and
non-profit organizations.
The standard amounts are based on the
total number of exemptions claimed on the,
2006 federal income tax return. The stan-
dard amounts are $30 for a personfiling a
return with one exemption, $40 for two ex-
emptions, $50 for three exemptions and
$60 for four or more exemptions. For,ex-
ample, a married couple filing a joint re-
turn with two dependent children (for a to-
tal of four exemptions) will be eligible for
the maximum standard amount of $60.
To get the standard amount, eligible tax-"


payers only need to fill out one additional
line on their regular 2006 return. The IRS is
creating a special short form (Form
1040EZ-T) for those who don't need to file
a regular return.
The standard amounts are based on ac-
tual telephone usage data, and the stan-
dard amount applicable to a family or oth-
er household reflects the. long-distance
phone tax paid by similarly sized family
households. Those who paid the long-dis-
tance tax on service billed after Feb. 28,
2003, and before Aug. 1, 2006, are eligible
for a refund.
Only individuals can use the standard
amounts. Alternatively, individual taxpay-
ers can choose to figure their refund using
the actual amount of tax paid.
Though businesses and non-profits must
base their telephone tax.refund on the ac-
tual amount of tax paid, the IRS is looJng
for ways to make the refund process easier
for these taxpayers. The IRS is considering
an estimation method businesses and non-
profits may use for figuring the tax paid.

The Deceniber WVhite prings..Tqivn,Counril Meeting,
has been changed to the 12th of December instead of the
19th. The date was changed by Resolution 06-12 at the
November 21, 2006, Council Meeting.

In Memory of Larry W. Smith,
November 29, 1914 November 29, 1994
God looked around his garden and found an empty place.
Then he looked down upon the earth and your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful. He always takes the best.
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough and hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyes and whispered "Peace be thine."
It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God called you home. ,"
Your loving daughter and grandson, Charlotte and George.

The Thanksgiving holi-
days are over, and I trust
everyone had a happy and
safe Thanksgiving. On our
end of the county, there
were a number of "get-to-
gethers" celebrating the
season. All of "Aunt" Nan-
cy Morgan's children,
grandchildren, and great-
grand children gathered at
her home on US 41, north
of White Springs to help
her celebrate Thanksgiving.
A former Florida Folk
Heritage Award winner
and author of her "autobi-
ography" "Out of the
Pocket," "Aunt" Nancy at
90 years old plus is an in-
spiration to many, includ-
ing me. I know all of the
family enjoyed this special
time with one of our re-
gion's special treasures -
"Aunt" Nancy Morgan.
Mrs. Virginia Daniel's
family all gathered in
White Springs for the
Thanksgiving holiday. It
was good to see Tom and
Anne Miller of Alpharetta,
Ga., along with many
members of the Daniel fam-
ily all here to help Mrs.
Daniel celebrate Thanks-
giving. Mrs. Daniel is a res-
ident at The Health Center
of Lake City. She taught
school here in White
Springs for many years and
was an excellent teacher.
Recently, she attended
the book signing for the
book, Those Were The Days -
narrated ,by. her and Mr.
John C. "Buddy" Camp,
and transcribed by -Mrs.
Barbara Beauchamp. I sure
hope' there will be some
more of these books avail-
able for folks to purchase
before the Christmas sea-
son, as I have heard a num-


ber of individuals say they
would like to have a copy.
The Stephen Foster Citi-
zens Support Organization
met on Monday, Nov. 20, at
7 p.m. in the park service
auditorium. CSO Vresident
Nora Lang presided over
the meeting, and there
were a number of items
discussed, including the
upcoming Festival of
Lights event that will be
held on Saturday, Dec. 9,'
with the White Springs
Christmas Parade begin-

3) DEPARTMENT HEADS INFORMATION ITEMS:


Dr. Greene is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. Fred "Dell" (Iris)
Greene, White Springs. He
is an anesthesiologist and
practices in Jacksonville.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Mr.
Glenwood Bennett, Jen-
nings. The family has the
prayers and sympathy of
the White Springs commu-
nity.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to Mrs. Darcy Broadnax,
longtime Hamilton County
educator, on the death of
her father, Mr. Albert
Washington. Mrs. Broad-.
nax and all the Washington
family have the prayers of
our White Springs commu-
nity.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Mr.
Howard Tyre, Jennings.
The family has the prayers
of our White Springs com-
munity.
Captain Bud Williams is
continuing the construction
of the Laundromat to be lo-
cated on the comer of First
Street and US 41 next to the
Country Caf6. I spoke with
Captain Williams recently
at the Telford Hotel, .and he
related to me that they
were "coming along" with
the construction. We are all
looking forward to this
new business soon to be
opened in White Springs.
Morris Williams, Lake
City, is one of my very best
friends. He and I met for
breakfast on Saturday
morning at Shirley's
Restaurant in Lake City.
While there, I shared a visit
with Rev. and Mrs. Travis
(Josie) Kimbril. They came
in for breakfast, and it was
so good sharing a visit with
them. Travis and Josie Kim-
bril ministered at First Bap-
tist Church, White Springs,
for a number of years. They
are now pasturing Eastside
Baptist Church, Lake City.
The South Hamilton Ele-
mentary School has a new
"topper" roof. We are so
pleased to see that our
school is shining- like "new
money" on the top. This
roof was part of a historic'
preservation grant .the
School System received
from, the Florida Depart-
ment of State. There will be
more work done on the fas-
cia and woodwork in the


rear of the building.
Stormant's Grocery in
White Springs sells some of
the best smoked meats and
barbeque that I have eaten
in many a day. If you
haven't tried their ribs,
pork loin, or wings, you are
missing a delectable treat.
Their deli, in my opinion,
already received an A+ on
the great breakfast sand-
wiches, as well as ham-
burgers that are served
there, not to mention Mag-
dalene's special "Batman"
bars I know Jerry
Lawrence and I ate a ton of
these with Bryan, Jimmy,
Wayne, and Neal when we
were growing up on the
Woodpecker Route. Mag-


dalene was a good cook
then, and she still is today!
Stop by Stormant's Grocery
and enjoy some great
"down home" cooking -
you'll be glad you did.

lowing in prayer: Virginia

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Thank you for telling
me and The Jasper New,
that you missed my col-
umn. I have missed doing
it, too;, glad to be back!
Hope to hear more from
you, as I am sure a lot
more has happened since
our last communication.
Spending Thanksgiving
with Linda Law and Anna
Cameron were Terry Law
and Brittany Herndon,
Lake Park, Ga.; and Leslie
McCauley, Charleston,,
SC.
Karen and Robert Prine
have returned from an ex-
tended eight day trip to
San Diego and vicinity,
where Robert was in-
volved in a training ses-
sion for his work. While
there they visited with rel-
atives, Andy and Heather
Prine, and nieces and
nephews and families.
They were taken on' tours
of Rodeo Drive, and
viewed homes of the stars,
especially a tour of Hotel
del Coronado, from the
1920's, very elegant and
interesting. Karen's moth-
er, Linda Law, took care
of the children while their
parents were away.
William and Marty'
Jackson recently spent
twelve days leisurely
touring, the New England
states, enjoying a slow


pace on no special sched-
ule. Among the states vis-
ited were Virginia, Ver-
mont, New Hampshire
and Maine; very restful.
William and Marty
Jackson joined other fami-
ly members for Thanks-
giving with Bill and Tina
Jackson, their daughter
Nikki, and Tina's daugh-
ter, Samantha. Hazen
joined the. family from
Jacksonville, Suzanne and
friend from Valdosta, Bill
and Suzanne's mother,
Nina Hackworth from
Valdosta. William and'
Marty returned home in
time to watch the ball
game; no need to say who
William .was watching .
Many of you had al-
ready told me of the
changing ofi the colors of
the leaves in North Caroli-
na and North Georgia.
Many of them were gone
by the time I got there but
I had a nice trip, longer
than I had originally
planned. I did get to ha've
some great visits with old
friends.
I stayed. with a friend
(who we call our adopted
sister, who lived with my
mother and grandmother-
and went to school, after
my sister, Martha, and I
left home). Juanita' is a
great cook and loves to do

so; I probably gained
some weight while in her
home. I attended several
church services with her
and was with her when
she learned that a girl she
is sponsoring from the
Honduras will be arriving
in Franklin on Dec. 4 in
order to graduate from
Franklin High School. She
has completed her high
school studies in Hon-
duras but in order to be a
graduate in the US she
must attend the next se-
mester in the states. She
will complete her studies
in the spring of 2007.
I was able to go to
Asheville with a former
neighbor, to meet a for-
mer neighbor for lunch.
We stayed all afternoon,
all three -of us having
grown up together, grad-
uated from FHS, married,
lost our husbands to
death (raised our chil-
dren), now being grand-
mothers and enjoying our
families. We agreed to
plan get-togethers and to
keep in touch. So many
good memories, neighbor-
hoods where we could
stroll up, and own the
streets without our fami-
lisk worrying about us,
our parents always knew
where to find us. There
were only two telephones
on our street, ours and the
plumber's, but someone
could always tell our folks
where we were and most
of the time they could see
us.
As of now, I am doing
this at Dr. Ben's office
while work is being done
at my house. I came home
to no heat and am having
a new heating system in-
stalled. I was without hot
water and a dryer for a
while, not knowing that I
could have it without the
furnace being in operation
and then was thrilled to
get hot water and. dryer,
after hearing from Vonnre
Wood that I could have
that without the heater.
That in itself was great. '"
The City was around to
my house on Monday
a.m. and took care of that
for me and hopefully by
the time you- read this I
will be back in my home,
thanks to Ben and Leigh
Ann hnd family, where, I
spent Thanksgiving, and
the nights; I did not suffer
too much. I was in tough
with the installers by cell
phone even while on a
trip back to North Caroli-
na for the funeral of a sis-
ter-in-law. Thanks again
to Ben for making the trip
with me.
Thank all of you for let-
ting me know you missed
my. column. Thanks to
Melody and staff of The
Jasper News and the folks
in Live Oak for allowing
me .the freedom and for
noting that my absence
was temporary.
I really miss getting in
touch with you. Let me.
hear from you. Hope you
had a great Thanksgiving
and are getting ready for
the Christmas season. Re-
member that Jesus is the
Reason for the Season.
Until next week! Let me
hear from you!

one who needs the love and
companionship of a four-
legged ball of love.
These animals are ready to


give you all the love that is in
their hearts just for the chance
to have a family to care and
love them. All they ask is for
the chance to be seen and to
show you how much they can
offer to you.

to see the variety of dog/pup-
pies, cat/kittens that are ready
to share unconditional love
that is in their hearts.

Treating back pain a difficult, evolving task


No one likes shoveling.snow. While the eyes of children light up at the sight of
snowfall, for men and women with driveways and sidewalks, that snowfall just means it's
time to dust off the snow shovel and get to work. Unfortunately, such a reality can often to
lead to aches and pains, as many a veteran snow shoveller can willingly attest. What's
important for back pain sufferers to know is they are certainly not alone. According to the
American Academy of Orthopaedic Suegeons, treating back pain costs nearly $100 billion
annually.
Such a figure is likely significantly higher than most people might expect. However, that
figure is indicative of the prevalence of back pain, whether it's afflicting people on an
interim basis thanks to a driveway full of snow or if the situation is chronic. The good
thing about so many people suffering from back pain is that much is being done to combat
it, offering those suffering from mild to more advanced stages a variety of options for
relieving their pain.
For those suffering from mild back pain as a result of too much shovelling or lifting
something too heavy, over-the-counter pain relievers have proven to help many times.
Ibuprophen, aspirin and acetaminophin are all available and have proven helpful for those
with just minor back pain. Minor back pain sufferers can also use a heating pad or a cold
bag, alone or in combination with over-the-counter drugs, to help relieve most, if not all,
of the pain.
For those suffering from more intense and lasting back pain, however, a couple of tablets
of aspirin and a heating pad will likely not do the trick. This is not to say your cause is
helpless, but it will just take more effort, and money, to treat your condition.
Unfortunately, back pain is chiefly characterized by variability, making a doctor's
diagnosis with respect to the effects of treatment and length of symptoms nowhere near as
concrete as diagnoses for other ailments might be. It's important to keep in mind for any
back pain sufferers that studies released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and
Quality (AHRQ) within the last 10 years have shown that even a month after treatment, 33
percent of sufferers have reported continuing pain while about a quarter of those surveyed
reported substantial limitations on their activities. This suggests that even the most
effective treatments will not eradicate pain entirely..
Perhaps the one treatment to be most wary of is spinal fusion surgery. Historically,
surgery was largely a condition-specific option not even considered for the majority of
back pain sufferers. However, in recent years spinal surgeries have increased greatly,
which is not necessarily a good thing, as many have pointed out that longterm effects of
surgery seem to be no more beneficial than other, less expensive treatments. This was first
pointed out. in a 2001 Swedish study that showed tremendous benefits in the first two years


after surgery, but no lasting effects or differences when compared to patients who did not
have surgery. Soon thereafter, other studies offered similar results, including a 2003
Norwegian study that suggested aggressive regimens combined with cognitive behavior
therapy proved eqaully as effective at reducing pain as did fusion surgeries. Again, this is
important to note due to the escalating costs of spinal fusion surgeries and their apparently
minimallongterm effectiveness.
While American surgeons might scoff at the results of these studies, it's important to
consider these same surgeons do not make money by suggesting alternatives to surgery.
The best way to approach potential back surgery might be a return to the days when spinal
surgeries were condition-specific and not a uniform answer for everyone. Sufferers of
sciatica, for instance, where intense pain shoots down the leg as a result of a spinal injury,
will often find surgery to be their most viable option. Still, while the surgery-first mentality
shifted greatly in favor of surgeries over the last several years, other options have now
come into play that should decrease the prevalence of spinal surgeries.
One evolving branch of treating back pain is known as Spinal Arthroplasty, an option
that offers non-fusion techniques to treating back pain. The goal of spinal arthroplasty is to
restore or replace degenerative spinal joints through the use of minimally invasive
technology. While this branch is still in its infant stages, for those suffering from chronic
back pain it should come as some solace, as spinal arthroplasty is being geared toward
reducing pain via avenues other than costly spinal fusion surgeries.
Still, as the Norwegian study suggested in 2003, exercise might be the best option. At
first glance, the concept of exercise when suffering lower back pain might seem
incomprehensible. But too much rest only worsens back pain. Such is the reason most
exercise regimens for back pain sufferers are combined with cognitive behavioral therapy
aimed at re-programming one's brain into being less sensitive to pain. This theory suggests
back pain is not only physical,.but neurological as well, essentially saying acute back pain
causes a person's central nervous system to become hyperactive as a means to combatting
pain. This, as supporters of the exercise and-behavior therapy suggest, can be treated
through reprogramming that will gradually allow sufferers to feel less pain as they exercise
more and become less sensitive to pain. All the while, treatments such as accupuncture,
physical therapy and even chiropractic treatments can be incorporated into the regimen.
It is important to keep in mind if you come inside this winter with an aching back thanks
to a driveway full of snow that treating your back pain does not have to be as expensive as
you might think. Thanks to a handful of recent studies and an apparent paradigm shift in
the field of spinal medicine, numerous other options that offer eqaul, if not exceeding,
beneifts and minimal.costs are now available for back pain sufferers. .

What's a fish worth? Z.... d


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
Go to your local fish market
and they'll tell you, to the pen-
ny, what each fish there is
worth at that moment. They'll,
often times, have a price sign
stuck in the ice, right beside
the fish's head so you don't
even have to know what kind
of fish it is, but you'll know it's
worth $12.95 a pound.
If you look around, you'll
notice different types of fish
have different prices. Some
types of fish are priced higher
than others even though
they're lying right next to one
another in the ice bed. A fish is
not a fish, is not a fish? Aren't
all fish created equal? Come
back in a few days and some of
the prices will have changed.
The fish you saw three days
ago for $12.95 per pound is
now $9.95 per pound. Come
back the next day and the same
fish is $8.95 a pound. The
price of that fish is dropping
$1 per pound per day; I'll come
back in a week. A week later
you conclude that someone
else obviously bought that fish
the day before you returned
but you learned old fish aren't
as valuable as new fish.
. Ask commercial fish-
ermen the worth of
a fish and he'll
tell you the
current .

wholesale price and let you
know that price will be less by
the time he returns with his
catch. Furthermore, the de-
cline in wholesale fish price by
the pound appears to be direct-
ly correlated with the increase
in diesel cost by the gallon. I
asked a fellow in Panama City
how much a fish was worth.
We were at the yacht basin
standing beside his well pol-
ished 63 foot sport fishing
wagon with a triple decker fly
bridge trimmed with numerous
gold international fishing
reels. He said come aboard. I
did after wiping my feet off on
the section of carpet on the
dock with the name of the ves-
sel embroidered on it. The
cockpit was a large dance floor
with twin fighting lounge
chairs port and starboard; em-
broidered name on the back-
rest, of course. On the transom
was a hide-away sink, see-
through live-well, raw and
fresh water wash down and
tackle storage. Looking for-
ward there was a full size chest
freezer for fish food, a refrig-
erator for people food and
drink and a bait prep station
larger


than a drafting board table
with integrated tackle storage.
A stairwell leads to the prima-
ry helm station on the first tier
of the fly bridge. Gold plated
rod holders dot the brightwork.
A wrap around sofa framed the
captains' chair so guest could
have a great view of a bank of
electronics that would shame
NASA in the 1960's. The sofa
had a stocked baby refrigerator
so you wouldn't have to go up
and down the stairs to get a
fresh drink. Embroidered
name on the sofa? What do
you think? A stainless ladder
dropped from above and lead
to the secondary helm station.
Looking up the ladder, it
seemed to me to be the "stair-
way to heaven" judging by
how far it went up. I can't
imagine anyone climbing up
that thing in a rolling sea with-
out a safety harness. I suppose,
in the event of bad weather,
you could transfer helm con-
trol to the upper station so the
Lord could take the boat in.
Through the double doors was
an all mahogany salon. Walls,
sofa, chairs, table, hutch, gal-
ley/wet bar, etc. were all
trimmed in mahogany in such
detail that the grain of the
wood was seamless. The
floor was covered in a
rich burgundy car-
pet except for
behind the bar,

down and forward, we looked
at the queen sized guest quar-
ters and full sized bathroom.
The term 'head' doesn't apply
to me when the head was larg-
er than the bathroom I have in
my house. We peeked into the
king-sized captains' quarters.
"This is where I stay" he said
and closed the door. I assumed
it had its' own 'head.' You
know, one of those dank
mildew smelly cramped toilet
closets you find on party boats.
He didn't let me in his quarters
because he was a little embar-
rassed he couldn't afford a
showcase bathroom like the
guest were privy to, or so I
made myself believe.
After the tour, he offered me
a drink and we chatted some
more. I found out it cost $800
per month to have his boat
float at that slip. That fee in-
cludes two parking places next
to your slip. For $2,000 'a day
he'll have his captain take out
your party for a wonderful day
on the water. The mate's tip is

tion as to the worth of a fish.
Two hours of prep time on.

most things are rigged and

much work in the: darkness of
the early morning, meaning
that your Honey Dumpling
didn't get any 'quality time' af-
ter the work week. Then an
hour and a half drive to the
crowded boat ramp where it
takes all your restraint not to
blow your top at the ill pre-
pared fellow ahead of you who
obviously shared quality time
with his Honey Dumpling the
night before. Then an hour or
so bumpy boat ride to the best
fishing spot in your GPS to
find out that three other boats
have stolen your secret num-

cide (o take a:snalckbreak, yoj.
ask your buddy, whose sole re-
sponsibility was to bring the
food and drinks, for a sand-
wich and soda. The look on his
face tells you he spent quality
time with his Honey Dumpling
last. night too and forgot the
groceries. You manage to put a
few fish in the boat before
hunger and thirst force abort-
ing the fishing mission. After
the mental anguish of loading
the boat back on the trailer at
the public boat ramp, you find
yourself at the Quickie Gas
Food Mart and Laundry Em-,
porium putting $25 worth of
gas in your truck, $50 worth of
gas in your boat, 2 quarts of
two-cycle oil ($5), a cold six
pack of liquid Prosac, bag of
stale chips and a peppercorn
hotdog ($11). (Definition:
Peppercorn hotdog-,what you
assume to be a spicy all beef
link with a sprinkling of pep-
percorns only to find out, after
first bite, that the 'peppercorns'
where just roasted flies that got
stuck on the wiener as it rolled
around for hours on the ma-
chine). The party continues
once you pull back ori the


road, after you donating the
chewed and unchewed portion
of the "peppercorn dog" to the
roadside raccoons. Your buddy
offers to help clean up the boat
and the fish but you're so
ticked off that for the sake of
the friendship you feel a little
time alone is best and tell him
you'll take care of it this time.
Soon you find yourself alone
in the backyard with a few
dead fish and a bomber
squadron of biting flies that
somehow heard what you did
with their kinfolk at the
QGFM. Still scratching the
whelps from the flies, you toss
the chunks of bagged fish parts
in the garage freezer, drag.
yourself to the shower, flop
down in that nasty over stuffed
chair she's been dying to have
hauled off to the dump, pop
the last'can of warm liquid
prosac and receive the silent
treatment from your Honey
Dumpling. "Honey, do you
want me to cook that fish for
dinner tomorrow night?" No
answer and she's sitting across
the room staring at you.
The worth of those fish? I
don't believe math applies. The
joyful screams and antics of.

'the boat at a rate that is only
curbed by the tinie it takes you
to remove the fish and put on
more bait. He is absorbed in
the moment like salt in.water.
He is the best fishermen the
world has ever known. Just ask
him. The satisfaction of dig-
ging a big grouper off the bot-
tom to the point of getting
inded brings the child out in a
grown man. You can tell by the
way he poses for a boat photo
and then sneaks a few peeks in
the cooler to marvel at the ac-
complishment. The roller
coaster facial expression
brought onby a submarine
missile strike from a five foot
plus barracuda on a trolled tube
lure. The aerial dance brings si-
lence till splash, down. "Did
you see that?" "Somebody get
the rod!" The naked flicker of a
redfish tail, bringing out the
,springer spaniel instinct in a
guide as she poles her client
within n casting range. "Fish
ON!"
Who's more excited? I vote
the fish, but I could be wrong.
Those 'four quick scenarios
are all, very different.but the
same.
You see, we can add up the


cost of equipment and so forth,
the value of our time and even
factor in what we could have
been doing if we weren't fish-
ing. But we can't put a price o
that single redfish, or one grunt
out of a hundred or more, or
that dancing barracuda that
most people would just release
anyway. The value of the fish
is in the moment.
The fish retailer and com-
mercial fishermen are painfully
aware of the cost of getting
fish. They know the value of
that fish declines from thetime
it is caught to the time it is sold.
They're simply trying to affix a
dollar figure on the fish.
They're in the fish business but
the value of the fish is in 'the
moment.
Sportfishermen look at fish a
bit different but there is a simi-
larity. The man with the 63
footer spent millions to be in
the lap of luxury the moment
the fish struck.
The other fellow endured
hurdles and hardship to have a
brief moment with a few fish.
The scenarios depicted the
high moments with a fish but
neglected all the time neces-
sary to be there when it hap-
pened. Will the little boyi re-

used. etc? Probably not. He
will remember the moinent

life.,
What is 'a fish not worth?
Your life and those lives with
you! The same person that
counts calories, cholesterol,
and/or carbs, doesn't smoke or
drink, drives the speed limit,
makes sure their child is in a
car safety seat, is worried when
a loved one is on the road late a
night, etc., can be the same per-
son that ignores the dark
clouds, turbulent seas, preven-
tative maintenance and 'expen-
sive' safety equipment and
takes a huge risk to catch a stu-
pid fish. If a little voice in your
head sounds off a warning
whisper; pay attention to it.
There is no fish swimming

and others. If conditions aren't
:,right, go golfing. I do,.

Families can


learn to sail


on any budget


New business opening



in Steinhatchee


For those who sit on shore,
longing to set sail every time a
white sail crosses the blue
horizon no more excuses.
Family sailing can bring
everyone together for an unin-
terrupted chance to slow
down, talk and enjoy each oth-
er. There are affordable learn-
to-sail programs that fit any
family and budget plus, you
don't even need to own a boat.
There are many ways for
families to learn together.
Sailing schools and charter
opportunities can teach the
necessary techniques and
skills in a few days. Here are
some tips for getting started:
Join a local sailing club
that provides access to a vari-
ety of club boats through an
affordable family member-
ship.
Take a sailing vacation
with a charter company that
provides instructional lessons
as you go. You'll enjoy a fun
family vacation and come
home with a bareboat cap-
tain's certification.
Vacation at a sailing
school in the beautiful
Caribbean or your favorite va-
cation city. Most schools offer
programs for kids.
Attend a local boat show
for more information on learn-
to-sail programs available in


your area.
Contact the local sailboat
dealership. Many offer free in-
troduction to sailing seminars
and on-the-water events;
Charter a sailboat with
captain and crew Stateside or
in the Caribbean. Take advan-
tage of their knowledge and
experience to learn everything
you can.
Find sailing and yacht
clubs near you. Clubs are very
supportive of their hobby and
often host open houses to in-
troduce new sailors to the
sport.
I A comprehensive list of
sailing schools, boat shows
and charter opportunities is
available at www.discover-
sailing.com. Once you learn
the ropes and explore different
boats, you'll know how to buy
the perfect sailboat for your
family's needs.
"Our kids were always beg-
ging us to let them go off with
friends on weekends we had
to fight for family time. Now
they beg us to take the boat
out," said Sharon Poulton, a
mother of two. "We are now
doing our first family charter
in the spring."
Remember the journey, not
the destination, is the true re-
ward of sailing.

Though you might not know
what mal de mer is, chances
are strong you don't like it. A
French term for what is known
as seasickness or motion sick-
ness throughout most of North
America, mal de mer is an af-
fliction felt by many, challeng-
ing the human body's ability to
maintain its equilibrium at
sea.
Perhaps the worst thing
about seasickness, outside of
the internal feelings of unrest,
is that many people take to the
water for their vacations. This
means part, if not all. of their
deserved downtime will be
spent feeling the ill effects of a
condition they never saw com-
ing. If you're planning on hit-
ting the seas, whether it's for a
day trip or an extended vaca-
tion, understanding what sea-,
:sickness is and how you can
'avoid it can be a good first
step for an enjoyable vacation.

WHAT IS SEASICKNESS?
Seasickness is the result of
your brain feeling confused.
When you 'begin to feel sea-
sickness, that's because your
eyes, inner ears and much of
the rest of your body are send-
ing different signals to your
brain. Since your body, and


brain are used to being on
land, the signals your body
typically sends to your brain
get garbled when the."ground"
beneath you, in this case a
body of water, begins to move.
The feeling of queasiness you
get is largely due to your inner
ear throwing off your sensory
perception., This is similar to
what happens on an airplane,
as that familiar ground you've
grown so accustomed to hav-
ing beneath you begins to
move further -and further
away. your braidi grows con-
fused.
According to WebMD, an
online medical resource, as
your eyes send"these messages
along to your brain assuring
the brain that everything is
stable, your inner ears are do-
ing quite the,opppsite, telling
the brain that nothing is stable
and that everything, including
your entire body, is moving,
These dueling perceptions
cause confusion for your
brain, leading to feelings of
queasiness. ,
Eventually, your brain will"
begin to sort out these percep-
tions, and you should be able
to get your "sea legs" under
you and enjoy your trip. How-
ever, such sorting out can take


several days not a comforting,
reality for those on a .day trip
or an extended weekend.

WHY DO YOU GET
SEASICKNESS WHILE
OTHERS DON'T?'
If you're out to sea and
everyone else seems to be en-
joying themselves, you might
wonder why it is you're feeling
seasickness and not them. Fear
not. however, as this is not be-
cause you're any more or less
susceptible than anyone else to
the ill effects of seasickiiess. In
fact, if you begin to feel sick
the moment you get to sea,
that's an indicator that your in-
ner-ear balance is actually very
good.
Everyone is susceptible and
likely to feel a certain degree
of seasickness, and ,some of
those same people who seem,
to be feeling no effects what-
soever could in fact be experi-,
encing seasickness. right in,
front of your very eyes. A
common symptom of those
suffering from seasickness is
an immediate feeling of sleepi-
ness. Though some associate
nausea and vomiting with sea-
sickness (both of which are
side effects), sleepiness is a
common and more instanta-

neous side effect. Anyone who
prefers to take a nap the mo-
ment they get out to sea is
more than likely suffering
through some seasickness, just
minus the, stomach pains and
other less desirable side ef-
fects.
For others, the more nega-
tive side effects do rear their
-ugly head, but they don't have
to. Even the most accom-
plished sailor can suffer from
seasickness, the difference is
knowing how todeal vith it.

HOW DO I HANDLE
SEASICKNESS?
The best way to combat sea-
sickness is to prepare yourself
mentally before you go out to
sea. Stay busy and keep your
mind occupied. Sitting in one
place while doing nothing will
only let your brain focus more
on the conflicting messages it's
receiving, allowing it to dwell
on the swaying motions of the
sea despite other messages
telling it otherwise.
,Try to stay above-deck as
much as possible. This is par-
ticularly good if land is still in
sight and the horizon can be
seen. Focusing on the horizon
will give your brain a point of
reference, furthering its chance
of adjusting to the unstable en-
vironment. Focusing on the
Horizon is easiest if you can
find a stable spot with minimal
swaying on the deck of. the
boat If you do find a stable spot
and want to pass the time, read-
ing is not a good idea, as it will
further the garbled messages
being sent from your eyes to the
brain, acting as a false sense of
stability. This is akin to how
many people cannot read while
in a moving car. Your eyes
should be focusing on the hori-
zon, not words on a page.
While medications for sea-
sickness do exist, these need to
be taken before you get out to
sea to be effective taking
them at the, onset of symptoms
won't help. If you know you'll
be feeling seasick, another
method 'of prevention is to
choose the correct boat on
which to do your sailing. Those
with histories of motion sick-
ness, be it on a plane or in a car,
would be wise to avoid smaller
vessels, as such environments
are similar to the closed-in con-
fines of plane cabins or auto-
mobiles. Many cruise ships
now' have stabilizers that
negate much of the motion
most commonly associated
with seasickness. In general,
the bigger the boat, the less
likely you are to feel seasick-
ness, as bigger boats are less
likely to be considerably
swayed by the movements of
the sea.

Florida receives $2.2 million for

OmniCare Medicaid Settlement


Attorney, General Charlie
Crist recently announced that
Florida will recover. $2.2 mil-
lion as part of a 43-state $49.5
million settlement with Omni-
Care, Inc. The agreement re-
solves allegations that the
company was unlawfully
switching patients' prescrip-
tions in order to increase prof-
its at the expense of the Med-
icaid program.
A national investigation,
led in part by Crist's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit, revealed
that OmniCare was allegedly
switching patients' prescrip-
tions to avoid federal price
ceilings. Price ceilings limit
the maximum amount of re-
imbursement that the govern-
ment would pay for the most
commonly prescribed forms
of certain medications. Omni-
Care allegedly switched its
patients to medications that
did not have a reimbursement
limit in order to circumvent
the government-mandated
price ceiling.
"Medicaid exists to help
the needy receive 'proper
health care," said Crist. "If
everyone plays by the rules,
both patients and taxpayers
benefit."
The agreement deals specif-
ically with allegations that pa-
tients taking Ranitidine, a,


popular antacid, were unlaw-
fully switched from tablets to
capsules, patients taking
Prozac capsules were unlaw-
fully switched to the generic
Fluoxetine tablet and patients .
taking Buspirone tablets, a
popular medication to treat
anxiety, were switched to,
Buspirone tablets of a differ-
ent dosage. The investigation
revealed no medically justifi-
ablereason for the switches
other than to inflate govern-
ment reimbursement and in-
crease OmniCare's profits.
As part of the settlement,
OmniCare has entered into a
Corporate Integrity Agree-
ment with the United States
Department ,of Health and
Human Services'. Inspector
General. The agreement will
ensure future Medicaid com-
pliance.
Crist'g Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit assisted the
prosecution of thecase, along
with the Department of Jus-
tice, the U.S. Attorney for the
Northern District of Illinois,
and other state attorneys gen-
eral,

settlement with OmniCare is

Automatic filing for medicare extra help


The National Council on Ag-
ing (NCOA) has added a new
feature to its Web-based Bene-
fitsCheckUp service that could
assist several million people
who are eligible for but have
not enrolled in the Extra Help
benefit available through
Medicare's Prescription Drug
Coverage (also known as Part
D). The new service, available
at www.benefitscheckup.org,
could be especially helpful to
the more than 630,000 who
were "deemed eligible" for the
Extra Help in 2006, but who
have recently lost their auto-
matic eligibility for this assis-
tance and must now apply for
it.


"If someone with Medicare
has limited income and re-
sources, there's no reason not to
apply for the Extra Help," said
NCOA President and CEO
James Firman. "And, now, any-
one, anytime can use the Web
to speed up this process and
find out if they can also get ex-
tra income or other help with
paying for their medicines or
health care expenses."
People must apply to the So-
cial Security Administration
(SSA) first to find out if they
qualify for Extra Help. If some-
one qualifies, they can save on
average $3,700 a year since
Medicare's Extra Help will pay
their cost sharing and they will


have no gap in coverage (the
donut hole). The deadline for
enrolhnent in a Medicare Part
D plan is Dec. 31.
People with Medicare, fami-
ly members or caregivers can
now use NCOA's Benefits
CheckUp (found at Bene-
fitsCheckUp.org) to submit
their applications for Extra
Help electronically and receive
immediate confirmation that
SSA received the application.
In addition, without filling out
any other questionnaire, the
BenefitsCheckUpRx-Extra
Help with Prescription Costs
feature will tell users if they
qualify for other federal or state
benefits programs. These in-


clude those programs that can
save them money on health
care (Medicare Savings Pro-
grams and Medicaid), provide
extra income (Supplemental
Security Income), find other
prescription savings (State
Pharmacy Assistance Pro-
grams) or help in paying for
food (Food Stamps).
"We added this new feature
to BenefitsCheckUp because
we received lots of requests
from individuals and feedback
from organizations involved in
finding and helping people with
Medicare that some other tool
was needed," said NCOA's
Benefits Access Group Stuart
Senior Vice President Spector.


"The new BenefitsCheckUp
Extra Help feature is free, it's
fast and it is confidential."
NCOA, which led far-reaching
outreach and enrollment efforts
during the initial Part D enroll-
ment period continues its work
in helping to find and enroll
those who may be eligible for
the Extra Help through its on-
going support of local Access
to Benefits Coalitions in 44 ar-
eas and the second phase of its
My Medicare Matters cam-
paign.

The Skywarn spotter pro-

Why Skywarn?
The NWS mission is to
protect lives and property.
When weather conditions are


favorable for severe thunder-,
storms or tornadoes are ex-
pected to develop, a severe
thunderstorm or tornado
WATCH is issued. A Severe
Thunderstorm or Tornado
WARNING is issued when
severe weather has been re-
ported by a Skywarn spotter
or indicated by Doppler radar.
Skywarn volunteers become
the NWS's eyes and ears,
helping to provide better
. weather watch and warning
services.


Who will activate Sky-
warn?
The NWS and/or the local
emergency management au-
thorities may activate the
Skywarn net whenever there
is a threat of severe weather
or the NWS issues a severe.
thunderstorm or tornado
watch. In this case, informa-
tion may be relayed through
amateur radio repeaters. Lo-
calized events may be phoned
direct to NWS and/or local
emergency management.

vations be taken?
Skywarn reports are re-
layed from on the road, while

ipating in Skywarn.

ested, please contact Suwan-
nee County Emergency Man-
