The G.A. R Roofing, of Florida plant began operation on Nov. 4 in the Hamilton Coun-
,tyPCS Industrial Park. The plant manufactures saturated organic felt roll roofing products
that are used as underlayment for shingles. Photo Submitted


, On Nov. 4, G.A.P Roof-
ing. [of Florida, began pro-
Sduction in its new facility lo-
cated in the Hamilton
County/PCS Industrial
)Park on US 41. G.A.P. man-
ufactures'a complete line of
saturated organic felt roll
roofing products that are
-wsed, as .'underlayment for
shingless.
\ The company, which was
estubhbhed .in 1990, has a
leime office and one plant in
Pr'vor, Okla. Another plant
is located in McGregor, Tex..
A partnership plant is locat-
ed in Shaffer, Calif:-
Inr the -past, G.A.PJl
shipped rolled roofing from
their plant in Oklahoma tp
Florida. After a customer
base! was established, the
company began to lookfor a
location in Florida for a new
plant'.'


According to Dave Swa-
roop, Plant Manager of
G.A.P. Roofing, of Florida,;
the company chose Hamil-
ton County for the plant be-
cause the Industrial Park
\was established and be-
cause of the encouragement
of the Economic Develop-
ment Authority.
Although G.A.P. has per-
mits from the Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion for two production
lines, only one line has been
constructed and is in opera-
tion. The system is fully au-
tomated,, so the employees
are trained to oversee the
operation, troubleshoot any
problems, perform routine
maintenance and follow all
safety proceed u res.
Once. enough employees
-have been trained, the plant
will operate 24 hours a day,


seven days a week, except
when it is down for mainte-
nance and repairs.
The process begins with
large rolls of felt minade of re-
cycled paper that are
shipped from Georgia, Al-
abama or Minnesota. Felt of
various densities is used to
produce different grades of
underlayment. According

Then they entered the

him. Neither Brooker nor
the officers were injured.
Brooker was booked into
the Hamilton County" Jail,
where he is being held on
$25,013 bond. He is a "per-
son of interest" in several
other commercial burglar-
ies in the City of Jasper and
additional 'charges are
pending, Chief McGuire
said. Anyone who has in-
formation about the bur-
glaries or any other crime
should contact the Jasper
Police Department (JAPD)
at 792-1130.
According to Chief
McGuire, the JPD is ex-
tremely proud of Officer
Williams. If it were not for
her diligent efforts and
professionalism the bur-
glaries may not have been
solved as quickly as they
were, he said.
The JAPD would also
like to recognize the efforts
of Deputy Griffin and
Deputy Boatwright of the
HCSO because they were
also instrumental in the
apprehension of the sus-
pect, Chief McGuire said.
This is just one of the many
examples in which the
JAPD and the HCSO work
together in an effort of co-
operation, he added.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


It's Beginning To Look A
Lot Like Christmas, Every-
where You Go!
The streets in and
around towns, in the coun-
ty, are bright at night. I
love the different designs,
all the clear lights; it adds a
calm and peaceful glow as
you drive through towrt.
The doors and windows of
the businesses are cheeer-
ful, filled with the joyful
feeling of the Christmas
Season. The churches are
preparing for a joyful sea-
son.
A trip to Suwannee Val-
ley Nursing Center is
enough to inspire a feeling
of what the season is all
about.. The residents are
enjoying the fireplace as
you enter, then throughout
the hallways, the rooms,
dining room, activities
room. Remember the
"Memory Tree;" the Pink
Ladies or someone will
take your contribution.
What a thoughtful way to
"give a gift of love."
We saw Johnny and Car-
ol Peterson at H&F Sunday
and did not know that
Johnny's mother, Doris, is
at SVNC recuperating
from hip surgery, and tak-
ing therapy. She is already
talking about getting back
to doing her service there.
GOOD NEWS! Straight,
from the lady's mouth,
H&F will not be closing the
first of the year, as rumor
has been heard. When I
saw Mrs. Waters at the


grocery store she gave me
permission to let it be
known that she is trying to
sell it, but will not walk
out and close if it does not
sell. Happy day!
It is my understanding
that the Woman's Club is
ready for entertaining. It
would be an easy way to
do it; the ladies have been
busy doing their thing. I
suppose if you want to see
for yourself, you can go to
the meeting on Friday and
make plans for your own
party. Also, I think the new
Woman's Club directories
will be available at that
time. Verna Home is the
president and can answer
your questions.
The parade will be later
in the day; you can make a
day of it. The parade will
start at 6 p.m., I think, and
there will be festivities in
the Park at the end of the
parade it can be a busy
day.
I do wish more of you
would do as Koby Adams
did. I received a nice email
from him this week. He
said he had visited with
Ben, Leigh Ann and my
grandchildren at the Co-
lumbia County Fair last
month, and enjoyed seeing
old friends. He said he arid
some friends had been able
to attend all the Florida
away games this year and
"it has been fun going to
different schools and
watching all the different
traditions that each school


has."
It is such a pleasure to
hear from friends this way,
and they will be glad to
hear from you. I would
love to help you keep in
touch, so let me pass on
your messages if you
would like to do it this
way. Thanks, Koby, it was
so good to hear from you.
Yes, I am back at home,
nice and cozy. Thankfully
the heat was out during a
"warm spell." With the aid
of a heater brought to me
by Larry and Gerri Hud-
dleston, I returned home
after a few days with the
Benjy Norris family, which
made it possible to stay
with them during the
Thanksgiving holidays.
Leigh Ann's parents,
Richard and Ann Shepard
also spent several days
with them during this
time.
If you see Ben's Camry
around town a little more
these days, it is because
my car is in the shop. Ben
is letting me drive the
faithful Camry. I also bor-
rowed Marybeth's trans-
portation and have been
able to get where I need to
go; hopefully will have
mine back soon.
What a blessing to have
family and friends come to
our rescue. The Coe family
has helped keep me sane,
fed and in good spirits;
how thankful to live where
people are so caring. While
away I purchased a sign
that says,"There's no Place
Like Home." How true. I
missed all of you.
Have a good week and
let me hear from you.

Audubon invites birders and nature enthusiasts to

take part in the 107th Annual Christmas Bird Count


The Four Rivers Audubon Society is
looking for volunteers in North Florida
and South Georgia to join birders across
the western hemisphere and participate in
Audubon's longest-running wintertime
tradition, the annual Christmas Bird
Count (CBC). The count will be held on
Saturday, Dec. 16 in Hamilton County
and is open to birders of all skill levels.
This year, over 2,000 individual counts are
scheduled to take place throughout the
Americas from Dec. 14 to
Jan. 5, 2007.
"Having fun while bird- Vol U7
ing can yield important
results that affect bird
conservation," said Geoff nee
LeBaron, National
Audubon's CBC director. If you are

database, and using the '
results they find to devel-
op Audubon's State of the Birds report,.
These important results will be reflected.
in 2006 in our waterbirds report, and in-
form the Audubon WatchList, which is
used to prioritize Audubon's bird conser-
vation activities."
The CBC began over a century ago
when 27 conservationists in 25 localities,
led by scientist and writer Frank Chap-
man, changed the course of ornithological-
history. On Christmas Day in 1900,, the
small group posed an alternative to the
"side hunt," a Christmas day activity' in
which teams competed to see who could
shoot the most birds and small mammals.
Instead, Chapman proposed to identify,
count, and record all the birds they saw,
founding what is now considered to be
the world's most significant citizen-based
conservation effort and a more than cen-
tury-old institution.
Today, in Audubon's centennial year
(making the CBC five years older than
Audubon!), over 55,000 volunteers from
all 50 states, every Canadian province,
parts of Central and South America,
Bermuda, the West Indies, and Pacific Is-
lands, will count and record every indi-.
\idual bird and bird species seen in a
specified area.
During the 106th season, about 70 mil-
lion birds were counted. Thanks in part to
Bird Studies Canada, a leading not-for-
profit conservation organization that is
the Canadian partner for the CBC, last


year saw a record high yet again: 2,022 in-
dividual counts. Each count group com-
pletes a census of the birds found during
one 24-hour period between Dec. 14 and
Jan. 5 in a designated circle 15 miles in di-
ameter about 177 square miles.
Apart from its attraction as a social and
competitive event, CBC reveals valuable
scientific data. The 107th CBC is larger
than ever, expanding its geographical
range and accumulating information
about the winter distribu-
tions of various birds. The
,jtf.epp C CBC is vital in monitoring
the status of resident and
.ded migratory birds across the
Wed Western Hemisphere, and
the data, which is 100%
, interested in volunteer generated, have
t of the 107th become a crucial part of
lubon Christ- the U.S. Government's

n at 386-963- database. Articles pub-
ail jinjack@all- lished in the 105th and
106th CBC issues of Amer-
ican Birds define new
methods of analyses of
large citizen-science data sets, with rele-
vance to other programs beyond the CBC.
Count results from 1900 to the present
are available on Audubon's website,
www.audubon.org/bird/cbc.
"Over three human generations, the
CBC has evolved into a powerful and im-
portant tool, one probably inconceivable
to any of the 27 participants on the first
Christmas Bird. Count," said LeBaron.
"With, continually growing environmen-
tal pressures, the value of the current data
might even exceed the imagination of to-

Dear Editor:
Let this Christmas be
the last Christmas our
troops will spend in Iraq.
We can't make executive
decisions but we can pray.
God does not charge us
for praying. Thank good-
ness we don't have to
stand in public and we
don't have to be ashamed
either.
--. God answers prayers,


THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2006


and he doesn't care about
the monetary values of the
person praying.
God said, "We receive
not because we ask not."
This Christmas as a com-
munity, town, county,
state or nation, let us all
pray for our children, fa-
thers, uncles, aunts, etc.,
to return home safely.

WellFlorida: Working together for healthy communities,

working together for a healthy Hamilton County


Sn United Way of Suwan-
Snee Valley is a volunteer-
- driven community impact
organization that strives
to address health and hu-
man service needs in three
focus areas: ensuring our
children's future; furnish-
ing food, shelter and safe-
ty; and promoting inde-
pendence and wellness.
Our local United Way ad-
dresses these focus areas
through 22 affiliated
S- health and'human service
'" agencies, of which 17 pro-
vide services to Hamilton
-- County.
Local community im-
-- pact initiatives include the
- Homeless Services Net-
.. ~ work of Suwannee Valley,
the 2-1-1 program for in-
S* formation and referral ser-
- vices, the Success By 6 ear-
ly childhood development
initiative and the Commu-
nity Organizations Active
in Disaster (COAD). The
Long Term Recovery
Committee is now work-
ing toward long-term sus-
tainability 'by transition-
ing to a long-term recov-
4 ery organization.
This is the first install-
ment in a series of articles
about agencies that pro-
vide services in Hamilton
JU jCounty. WellFlorida, an
affiliated but non-funded
United Way agency, is cel-
ebrating its thirty-seventh
year of service to more
than 1.6 million residents
across 11,000 square miles
of 16 north central Florida
counties. Hamilton Coun-
ty is the northernmost
county in the region
served by WellFlorida.
The goal of WellFlorida
is to foster greater com-
munity health by provid-
ing communities the in-
sights, tools, programs
and services necessary to
meet their healthcare
needs and to improve
'' .health outcomes. Through
partnerships with individ-
uals, community-based
and non-profit organiza-


tions, local governments,
healthcare providers and
businesses, WellFlorida
strives to create healthier
communities for all resi-
dents.
WellFlorida is an um-
brella organization that
covers a variety of in-
house community part-
ners, some of which pro.*
vide direct services in:
Hamilton County, and co-
ordinates regional riet-'
works for prenatal and in-
fant and HIV/AIDS care.
As the lead agency for the
Healthy Start of North
Central Florida coalition
and the North Central
Florida Ryan White CARE
Program, over the last five
years WellFlorida has as-
sured that more than 750
at-risk Hamilton County
residents received nearly
$450,000 of needed prepa-'
tal and infant and
HIV / AIDS care.
The organization also
develops and implements'
critically needed pro-
grams. An example is the
Self Managing Rural
Awareness Team
(SMART), a diabetes and
hypertension education
outreach program.
SMART provides disease
self-management skills to
lower income residents in
our most rural counties.
Diabetes-related hospital-
izations for clients in this
program have decreased
more than 90% since join-
ing the program.
Other programs that
provide services in Hamil-.
ton County are Central
Healthy Start, Rural
Health Partnership of
North Central Florida,
and Community Initia-
tives.
In Hamilton County,,
WellFlorida was instru-
mental in obtaining the
Blue Foundation for a
Healthy Florida grant,
which brought a volunteer
pharmaceutical assistance
program coordinator to


the community. This pro-
gram has brought hun-
dreds of thousands of free
and reduced price medica-
tions to low-income coun,
ty residents.
WellFlorida provides in-
sights and education or
healthcare issues through
needs assessments, health
plans and community
health profiles that help
inform local,. and :statt
health policy decision
makers. In 2005, Well-
Florida conducted a pro-
bono comprehensive
health needs assessment
for the Hamilton County
Strategic Health Care
Working Group.: This
needs assessment has
been the core of an evolv-
ing discussion on the fu-
ture of Hamilton County'E
healthcare system and
health outcomes.

Almighty God smiled down on you and shed a tear of *
grace.
A year ago...a light in our world was extinguished as your
fight came to an end and our hearts bore a hole that no
length of time will mend.
A year ago.."we came together and said farewell to a truly

By Cheryl McCall
Kindergarten and second
grade classes enjoyed a field
trip to the Deas' Old House
on Thursday, Nov. 30, for
an old-fashioned cane
grinding. Students were
welcomed by Damon and
Becky Deas, who explained
the grinding process.
Brenda Franklin took stu-
dents on a wagon ride with
her. beautiful horses, Dia-


mond and Music. Dean
Franklin cooked delicious
pancakes, which were
served with syrup and
sausage. "Kitchen helpers"
were Elizabeth Deas and
Dorothy DeVane.
Dan Buchanan showed
and explained farm prod-
ucts and encouraged all to
be appreciative of farmers.
Thanks to all the Deas fami-
ly and "assistants" who


made this such a special ex-
perience for students and
teachers!
On Nov. 30, NHE held an
induction ceremony for its
newly re-formed National
Junior Beta Club. The theme
for the ceremony was "Har-
vest" with each letter repre-
senting an attribute of a Jr.
Beta Member: H for hon-
esty, A for achievement, R
for responsibility, V for vi-
sion, E for enthusiasm, S for
sincerity, and T for toler-
ance.
Jr. Beta Club candidate,
Seth Adams, led the pledge
of allegiance; NHE princi-
pal, Jeffrey Burnam gave
the welcome and introduc-
tion. The Jr. Beta Club spon-
sors Pam Hendrick, Judy
Steedley, Faye Corbett, and
Lee Wetherington-Zamora -


spoke on each of the attrib-
utes of being a Beta mem-
ber. Each new member re-
cited the National Jr. Beta
Club pledge and then was
presented with member-
ship certificates by Mr. Bur-
nam.
The Beta Club members
were chosen on the basis of
academic achievement,
leadership skills, and moral
character. The club will be
involved in service activi-
ties throughout the year
starting with NHE's Opera-
tion ABC toy drive.
Congratulations to mem-
bers and their parents! We
are proud of your accom-
plishments and are pleased
that you are a part of NHE
where "we are changing
lives through quality educa-
tion."


Fifth grade students inducted into the Jr. Beta Club at North Hamilton Elementary are Seth Adams, James Barker, Crys-
tal Coleman, Leslie Goolsby, Nicholas Hill, Maggie Hughes, Johnathan Mathis and Dalton Norris. Sixth grade students
who were inducted are Jose Alvarez, Brooke Burnam, Bruce Culbreth, Justin Derocco, Danielle Hill, Amber Laffoon, Al-

By Waylon Bush
The big news from South
Hamilton Elementary is
our recovery from Rural
Life Folk Days, Wild Ad-
ventures, Veteran's Day,
Fall Festival, Thanksgiving
and the clickety clack of
roofing hammers. Christ-
mas is on the way and so is
FCAT. For the next three
weeks or so, the teachers at
SHE will be doing their
best to prepare their stu-
dents.
Each year the standards
become tougher and
tougher. To become an "A"
school again will require
better scores and more stu-
dent progress than ever be-
fore.
Also, science has been
added to the list of curricu-
la to be scored. With that in
mind, our work has to be
continuous, consistent, and
challenging. Even with
Christmas exciting the stu-
dents, we must buckle
down and stay the course.
After Christmas, we
again will renew our ef-
forts to get in that last in-
struction, give testing ad-
vice, and motivate the stu-
dents to do their very best.
My advice (for what it is
worth) to parents, is to help
the students any way that
you can, challenge them to
succeed, but above all


the club house call Vema
Home at 792-1556 or Mari-
on Turner at 792-1555.


things, let them know that
you love them.
Once again, I would like
to thank Delores Howell
for her outstanding job on
coordinating the V-Day
luncheon, program, and
parade. And a thanks to all
who helped in so many
ways. A special thanks
goes out to Lamar Royals
and Roger Hutto. Mr. Roy-
als spoke to the veterans
during the luncheon and
Mr. Hutto directed the
HCHS band students in the
parade. The Hamilton
County High School ROTC
drill team and the HCHS
band students made the
day a rousing success.
They were fabulous! The
drill team brought respect
and dignity to the parade
and the band brought ex-
citement and just did a stu-
pendous job. I wish to
thank the team, band, their
sponsors, and Mr. Starr,
HCHS Principal, for their
cooperation and for a job
truly well done. We thank
you!
The PTA recently held
their Fall Festival that was
a great success and we ap-
preciate all who helped, all
who attended, and espe-
cially all those who spent
their money with us! Just
remember, it will be used-
to help the SHE students.
Thanks especially go to
Libby Carver and Anith
Dye and all of the volun-
teers who came to help us.
We appreciate those who
volunteer at SHE. and re-
mind those of you who'
would like to become, a
school volunteer on a regu-
lar basis to come by the of-
fice and we will fix you up..
with some paperwork.
When you take care. of that,
we will put. you to work.
My thanks also goes out
to all who are willing to
serve as substitute teach-
ers. These people do not
recognize their importance
in the day to day needs of
SHE. If you would like to
become a substitute, come
by the office and we will
fix you up.
We wish to congratulate'
Joyce Shaw who is now the
new District 5 School
Board member, represent-
ing White Springs and the
surrounding area. We look
forward to working with
her in this new role.
As we enter this Christ-
mas season, remember the
reason for the season and
remind your children why
we really celebrate during
thistime of the year. May
God bless you all.

Game 3 vs. Branford
High in Branford, Tues-

The Branford Buccaneers
led the HCHS Trojans 7-2
after the first five minutes
of the game. However, the
Trojans stormed back to
take a one-point lead after
the first quarter. From then
on, it was all Trojans as
they outscored Branford
61-32 over the last three
quarters for the decisive
victory.
The Trojans were led by
Vincent Bailey (14 points,
nine rebounds, five

Game 4 vs. Bradford
County High in Jasper, Fri-
day, Dec. 1: HCHS 81 -.
Bradford 69.
The Tornadoes of Brad-
ford County High School
came into Jasper to battle
the Trojans of Hamilton
County High in a battle of
unbeaten teams. BHS came
in 2-0 in Class 4A and the
Trojans came into the game
3-0 in Class 3A.
It was a tough competi-
tive battle throughout with
no team taking more than a
six-point lead through the
first three quarters. The
Trojans led the Tornadoes
37-33 at halftime but Brad-
ford came out strong in the
second half, scoring 12
points in a row. The Tro-
jans regrouped, however,
and kept it a three-point
deficit after three quarters
of play.
After BHS scored the
first two points in the
fourth quarter to take a
five point lead, the Trojans
went on a 12-7 run to tie
the game at 58 with 4:37
left.
From that point on, the
Trojans used strong de-
fense and clutch free throw
shooting from Eric Jackson


and TiWan Cooks alon
with good passing and o
fensive rebounding 4.y
Vincent Bailey, Josh Jon s,
and Anthony Stevens to
lead the Trojans to a 1 2
point victory over the T6r-
nadoes, 81-69. The gamine
was capped off with
buzzer-beating three point
shot by Anthony Steyens
that electrified the home
crowd. /
Vincent Bailey led the
team in points ,(21), re-
bounds (eight), blocked
shots (eight), and assists i
(seven). Josh Jones pitched
in 20 points, seven re-
bounds, six assists, and a
team-leading five steals.
Anthony Stevens had a sol-
id game with 16 points and
five deflections.
Other Trojan contribu-
tions included: TiWan
Cooks (nine points, four
assists); Eric Jackson (six
points, four assists, and a
team-leading 11 deflec-
tions); Malcolm Pollock
(five points); Josh Paul
(two points, three re-
bounds); Jeremy Claridy
(two points); Glenn Shep-
pard (four deflections,
three steals); and Gareth ,
Johnson (two rebounds).
.The Trojans moved to 4-0
in the regular season. They
have gotten off to a hot
start and are playing very
unselfish, hard-nosed bas-
ketball. The effort has been
tremendous and we are
very proud of the team.

Santa Claus will be com-
ing to town in White
Springs on Saturday, Dec.
9, at 5:30 p.m. when the an-
nual White Springs Christ-
mas Parade will kick off.
The parade will terminate'
inside the Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State
Park. The park will be
dressed from "stem to
stern" with thousands of
lights and other Christmas
finery. A hot dog supper
will be served inside Nelly
Bly's Kitchen, and Santa
Claus will be on hand to
greet holiday visitors. For
more information call 397-
2733. Ring in the Yuletide
-"way down upon the
Suwannee River."
Live. Oak outdid itself
with this year's Christmas
on the Square. Mama and I
went over to enjoy this an-
nual holiday extravaganza
on Saturday, Dec. 2, and it
was truly outstanding. The
Suwannee County Cham-
ber is to be commended for
a job well done on produc-
ing such a great event, and
it has grown each year. We
saw a lot of friends and rel-
atives, and, of course, visit-
ing and talking to those we
hold dear is a big part of
the holiday season.
No trip to Christmas on
the Square would be com-
plete without purchasing a
fruitcake from the Live Oak
Church of God. I am not a
fruitcake fan, but these 'are
wonderful. You can pur-
chase them at Cheek and
Scott Drug Stores in Live
Oak; Don't miss next year's
Christmas on the Square!!!
Another holiday event


that is sure to bring a smile
to faces young and old is
the Suwannee Lights dis-
play at Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park. The price
for this event is reasonable:
$8 per car load during the
week, and $12 on the week-
end. If you are a weekend
visitor, you may be able to
stop and have some hot
chocolate and a photo op-
portunity with Santa Claus.
Go over and "put yourself"
in the holiday mode at
Spirit of the Suwannee.
Jon and Mandy Kay were
visitors in White Springs
this past weekend. They
came down from Indiana,
as Jon was one of the in-
structors at the Stephen
Foster dulcimer retreat. If
you never heard Jon Kay
play the mandolin, you
missed a real treat. Jon,
Mandy, and son, Zelton,
lived for a number of years
on River Street in White
Springs when Jon was the
staff folklorist at Stephen
Foster. They now reside in
Indiana where he is the
staff folklorist at Indiana
State University. Jon did a
wonderful job in the com-
munity and for the park
when he lived here.
Bobby Hicks and son,
Dawson, Tampa, were
weekend guests of the
Bullard family this past
weekend. They came up to
do a little deer hunting and
to visit with us. Bobby and
Dawson stayed over at the
hunting camp, the "Health
Club." We are always
pleased to have them visit
with us here on the Suwan-
nee shore. Bobby Hicks is a


renowned Florida singer
and songwriter and is a
premiere performer each
year at the annual Florida
Folk Festival.
Karen Dees, Gainesville,
Carla Dees, White Springs,
and Angie Dees Altman,
Jasper, traveled to Atlanta
to attend the Florida-
Arkansas SEC Champi-
onship football game held
in the Georgia Dome on
Saturday, Dec. 2. The ladies
enjoyed themselves im-
mensely, especially since
they were able to come
back home as victors.
Beverly Davis and Bon-
nie Page, Lake City, were
lunching at the Country
Cafe on Saturday when
Mama and I stopped in.
These ladies are both active
members at White Springs
United Methodist Church
and were busy on a mission
to get the church and fel-
lowship hall decorated in
holiday style for Christmas
and for a Sunday WMU
meeting. I always enjoy my
visits and fellowship with
Beverly and Bonnie, and I
appreciate them, along
with all the Methodists in
always making me feel so
very welcomed when I vis-
it their church.
Dorothy Bryant, long-
time White Springs educa-
tor, taught us so much
about the spirit of altruism
and giving when we were
going through school.
When Mrs. Bryant and I
taught together at White
Springs during the early
80's, we began the practice
of remembering our area
senior citizens on special
holidays and occasions.
This led to the creation of a,
civic club, the Builders
Club that for a long time
was sponsored by the Ki-
wanis at Occidental.
Education, to Dorothy
Bryant, was more than the:
three R's and still is today.
She, along with many area.
educators like Delores
Howell, Penny Mickler,

and a host of others work
with our local school chil-
dren on various altruistic
and patriotic projects. We
appreciate these ladies and
many, many others who go
the "extra mile" to impart a
"total education" to today's
students. May God bless
each one in a very special
way.

lowing in prayer: JM Mor-

Cashing in on the last big bite

of the year


. by Larry Nixon
Shorter days, cool tem-,
peratures and buck fever
go a long ways toward
calming many an avid an-
gler's desire to put the boat
in the water and go fishing
for trophy bass. But for
everyone of you who al-
ready has the tarp over the
boat, the rods and reels in
the closet and the remote
control in your hand, know
this: autumn, especially
mid-November to mid-De-
cember, offers some terrific
opportunities to catch bass.,
In fact, it may be one of the
best times of the year.
The more the mercury
dips, the tighter the schools
of baitfish will be, and
when baitfish schools get
tight, bass feed like crazy,
gorging themselves for
winter. For this reason, the
last bite of the year can also
produce some of the year's
biggest fish. Also, cold-
weather bass fishing can be
a numbers game: where
you find one, there's
bound to be more.
Qn warm sunny days,
anglers can often find fish
relatively shallow, even in
December. Fish will often
gather on the first structure
element, the edge of a


weed line or a rock pile, off:
shore and they can be tak-.
en on all manner of motion:
lures such as crankbaits.
Vibrating, rattling baits'
like a Berkley Frenzy Rat-'
tl'r, are most productive
when water temperatures
are falling.
As the water tempera-
ture drops even more, the
fish generally head toward
deeper water and bottom
baits like Berkley Power
Jigs or a drop-shot rig are
in order. Around this time
fishing becomes more ver-
tical than horizontal as an-
glers fish the bottom. With
steadily dropping temper-
atures and steady winds
the norm this time of year,
look for channel drop-offs
where high banks give you
some refuge from the
wind, then work the bot-
tom structure.
There's plenty of time
left in the year for watch-
.ing football and deer hunt-
ing, so don't miss your
chance to cash in on the last
big bite of the year.
Berkley Pro Larry Nixon
is a former Bassmaster
Classic champion with
more than $1.5 million in
career earnings on the
BASS Tour.

High School Choir and Sigma Delta Drama

Club perform Christmas concert and plays


The Hamilton County
Choral Department will
hold its annual Christmas
Concert on Thursday, Dec.
14, at 7:30 p.m. in the
Hamilton County High
School auditorium. The
program will consist of two
choirs, and two plays per-
formed by members of the
Sigma Delta Drama Club.
Both choirs and Sigma
Delta are sponsored by
Anita E. Jones.
The High School Choir
has 71 members in grades
nine through 12. The Sigma
Delta Drama Club has 79
members in grades seven
through 12. They will per-
form two short plays. The
cast includes: Nash Hen-
derson, Morgan Belote,
Taylor Combass, Taylor
Parker, Caroline Walker,
Andrew Myers, Leslie
Sanders, Darra Pert, Linda
Mercer, Natericka Valen-
tine, Tiffany Hart, Ashley
Subic, Shelby Wills, Colby
Cribbs, Markus Hodges,
Brianna Hanlon, Brittany


Wheeler and others that
will be filling in as extras.
One student involved in
both chorus and drama
was responsible for raising
an extraordinary amount
of money for the chorus
competition. Darra Pert,
daughter of Sandra Pert of
Jasper, sold 111 tubs of
cookie dough and maga-
zine orders in the first
fundraiser of the year for
the choir. It took Darra and
her mother three days to
deliver all the cookie
dough. This was the most
money raised by any stu-
dent at HCHS in the past
11 years.
Darra raised nearly $600
in profit for the choir. This
was enough to pay for
three students to attend the
competition. Prizes were
given to students who
reached various goals dur-
ing the fundraiser. Darra's
prize was a check for $100
from Great American Op-
portunities.
Make plans now to at-


tend the performances and
support the students at
Hamilton County High
School. Tickets will be $3
each for ages five through
adult. All money collected


from the ticket sales will be
used for the chorus compe-
tition trip held at Universal
Studios in the spring. Six
hundred tickets will be
available for purchase.

Raising awareness of college affordability


Higher education is the key to opening the
door of opportunity, and many Hispanic
Florida families are unlocking that door
through college enrollment. According to
the State of Florida, enrollment of Hispanic
students in Florida's public universities in
fall 2006 increased by 7.3 percent. To help
Hispanic families save for their children's
future college education, the Florida Prepaid
College Board and the Florida State Hispan-
ic Chamber of Commerce have partnered to
inform Chamber members about the state-
sponsored college savings plans: the Florida
Prepaid College Plan and the Florida Col-
lege Investment Plan.
"We realize the value of higher education
and will continue to support our Hispanic
community to progress in the right direc-
tion," says Florida State Hispanic Chamber
of Commerce President Julio Fuentes. "The
most important step is to educate Hispanic
families about college savings options, and
we are committed to doing so through our
partnership with the Florida Prepaid College
Board."
"We want to make sure that every family
in Florida knows that college can be made
affordable and attainable," states Florida
Prepaid College Board Chairman Ted Hoep-
ner. "For less than a dollar per day, parents
of newborns can open a Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan* and send their children to great


Florida institutions to help them reach their
dreams."
With the Florida Prepaid College. Plan,
families can lock in the cost of college tu-
ition, local fees and dormitory housing to-
day. Once enrolled, the plan payments are
fixed and never increase. When the child is
ready for college, the plan covers the actual
cost at any Florida public college, or the val-
ue of the plan may be transferred to most
private colleges in Florida, select technical
schools and most out-of-state colleges.
The Florida Prepaid College Plan is the
largest program of its kind in the country
with more than 1.1 million contracts
sold. The plan is financially guaranteed by
the State of Florida, making it a safe way
to save. To qualify, the child or the child's
parent/guardian must be a Florida
resident. Anyone, including parents, grand-
parents, .friends or even businesses, may
purchase a plan. Enrollment for the Florida
Prepaid College Plan started Monday, Oct.
16. To lock in this year's plan prices, you
must sign up by Jan. 31, 2007.
The Florida Prepaid College Board also
provides families with a second option to
save for college. The Florida College Invest-
ment Plan, ** which offers a range of in-
vestment options and flexibility, may be

graduate without the burden of serious stu-
dent loans; for that I'm sincerely grateful to
my parents."
The Florida Prepaid College Plan is fi-
nancially guaranteed by the State of Flori-
da, so it is a safe way to save. This year, tu-
ition plan prices start at less than $25 a
month for the two-year community college
plan and less than $82 a month for the four-
year university plan. The first payment is
not due until April 2007. Once enrolled, the
plan payments are fixed and will never in-
crease.
When your child is ready for college, the
Prepaid College Plan will cover the actual
cost of tuition, local fees and dormitory
housing at any Florida public university or
community college. And, if your child de-
cides to attend a private college, an out-of-
state college or a vocational/technical
school, the value of the plan may be trans-
ferred to any eligible institution. To qualify,
the child or the child's parent/guardian
must be a Florida resident. Anyone, includ-
ing parents, grandparents, friends or even
businesses, can purchase a plan.
Enrollment for the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan continues through Jan. 31, 2007.

The great papers debate: Which ones


should you keep and for how long?


CPA and attorney Jim Lange helps you get
organized by laying out which important
documents you should be keeping and how
long you should be keeping them.

Hoboken, NJ (November 2006)-Who doesn't feel like they
are drowning in paper? Receipts, bills, deeds, tax returns, pay
check stubs, the list goes on and on, we keep them because we
are too afraid to throw them away. You never know when you
might need them, and there is always the growing threat of
identity theft that makes you think twice before tossing them
in the garbage (invest in a shredder!). We may be keeping
these papers, but many of us aren't organizing them in a way
that they can be retrieved quickly when needed. If you're like
many Americans, any time you go to organize your pile of im-
portant papers, its size overwhelms you, and you decide to
tackle an easier task.
Don't worry, Jim Lange, CPA, attorney, and author of the
new book, Retire Secure! Pay Taxes Later: The Key to Mak-
ing Your Money Last as Long as You Do (Wiley, 2006, ISBN:
0-470-04354-7, $24.95), says there is a way to chip down that
paper pile so that organizing your important documents won't
seem like such an uphill battle. He wants to set you straight on
which documents you should keep and how long you should
keep them.
"Many people have no idea which important documents
they should keep and which they shouldn't," says Lange. "So
they end up either keeping everything or throwing away doc-
uments that they should have kept. Simply knowing the time
frame for keeping certain documents is the first step to getting
organized."
As for getting organized, Lange says now is as good a time
as any. In fact, it may be better than most.
"' think everyone should use this bit of down time before the
holiday crunch to get a leg up on the New Year...and even tax
season," suggests Lange. "April may seem like it's eons away,
but you will save yourself a lot of headaches with just a bit of
organization. The best way to get organized is to start going
through all of those important papers that have been piling up
all year."
Below Lange has compiled a summary of tax and account-
ing documents with rough guidelines of how long you should
keep them. Keep the list and post it 'somewhere, preferably
where it won't get buried:
Documents you never want to part with. There are some
documents e\ er one knows to keep for life: birth certificates,
marriage licenses, and wills, for example. And others that you
may know are very important, but aren't quite sure what their
shelf life should be, particularly those-tax related documents,
such as tax returns, the cost basis of investments, and records
of non-deductible IRA contributions. The bottom line, you
should keep them all. "These documents may not need to be
readily accessible, but you should definitely find a safe place
for them," says Lange. "You may want to keep-birth certifi-
cates, 'death, certificates, k ills, and insurance policy informa-
tion iL'asafet deposit .' boat 5ourLfocatlbnk."
Records that should go out with the old. This' category in-
volves documents such as house deeds and car titles. With
these documents, the general rule is that as long as you are re-
sponsible for the item related to the document you should keep.
its papers. What falls into this category? "These documents are
high on the list of important papers," says Lange. "But there is
no need for you to keep them forever. When you sell your
house, chances .are you will be buying a new one and will

Records with a seven year itch.
These are documents that you can get
rid of after seven years. When filing
these you may want to file them by .
date to ensure you don't keep them /.i
longer than necessary. Documents in___
this category include canceled '
checks/receipts with tax implications ,- '
(alimony, charitable contributions,
mortgage interest and retirement plan .
contributions) and credit card state- -
ments if tax related expenses are doc-
umented.
Records to toss after the ball drops.
Generally the fastest growing piles of
documents are those records that
should be purged at the end of every
year. These include quarterly state-
ments of retirement plans, bank statements and bills with no
long-term tax importance. "These documents generally make
up the bulk of those that are piled up in your home or office
because they are coming to you repeatedly throughout the
year," says Lange. It's silly to keep them indefinitely. After a
year, they become trash and that is where they should go." Just
remember, with the increasing threat of identity theft- shred-
ding, rather than tossing, is the way to go.
Even if you know which papers to keep and which you can
get rid of, there will still be a lot of important documents for
you to manage. What's the best way to keep everything orga-
nized? If you have access to a computer and a scanner, you can
make electronic back-up copies of all paper documents by
scanning them into your computer and saving the file to one of
those handy-dandy portable memory sticks.
"Then in the event of an emergency you can simply grab
that little memory stick and know that you will have numbers
and records at your disposal," says Lange. "The sticks are also
a great place to store your information for online accounts.
Some of the larger capacity memory sticks also come with
password protection so you don't have to worry about other
people getting access to your information. It may be one of the
best little investments of your time and money."
"As for the hard copies of these important documents, be
sure to keep them in a fire proof storage box," continues
Lange. "The best case scenario would have you saving your
information both electronically and in hard copy form. Either
way, be sure to develop a filing system that is easy to use. If
your system is, too complicated, you won't keep it up. Once
you're organized, you will be thrilled with the peace of mind
that comes with knowing you have all of your important doc-
uments organized and at they are ready any time you need
them."

Documents to Keep for Life:
Tax related
Copies of 1040 tax returns with W-2 stapled to the form

earnings if mistakes are made)

Diabetes monitoring can save lives


Like many diabetes patients, Rachel Mayover has trouble routinely checking her blood glucose
levels. When she forgets to check, she doesn't know when to take her medication which can be
dangerous and even deadly.


I,


"It's just something I don't think about doing," says Mayover. "When I'm in the middle of /
dinner with someone, I don't want to ruin the mood and waste a lot of time checking my glucose -.,
levels."
Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure and can be a silent killer. According to the
American Diabetes Association, 20.8 million Americans have diabetes more than 6.2 million of .
whom don't even know they have it. Doctors say monitoring and managing the care of diabetes is
the key to slowing the onset and progression of the eye, kidney, and nerve problems often
associated with the disease.
A study of more than 3,000 people, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, showed that
those who began self-monitoring their blood glucose took their medication more regularly and ',' '
had lower, healthier long-term blood glucose levels than those who did not. "
Blood glucose meters that require only a drop of blood from a patient are the most popular
method of self-testing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved the Sidekick,
the world's smallest diabetes testing system. The Sidekick is about the size of a roll of film,
requires no time-consuming coding like other testing meters, and takes less than ten seconds to
give results.
"Its small size makes it easy to carry discretely and may encourage people with diabetes to
analyze their blood glucose levels more frequently, thereby better managing their blood glucose

Aunt Pams KIDS CORNER


Christmas is sha


By Pam Campbell
Just think, it is almost Christmas
time again! I imagine you are really
looking forward to Christmas and all
the fun the holiday brings. I know most
kids are thinking about the presents
they hope they will get!
The stores have so many Christmas
decorations, Christmas music and
Christmas presents. It seems everyone,
kids and adults, get so busy with so
many Christmas parties, parades, shop-
ping, decorating, Christmas programs,
plays, caroling, baking and so many
other activities they forget this holiday
is actually a birthday celebration!
There is nothing wrong with all these
fun Christmas activities, I love them,
too! We just need to make sure we
don't forget the real reason we are cel-
ebrating Christmas. You see, Christmas
is a birthday celebration for Jesus
Christ, the Savior of the world!
God knew we all needed Jesus to
be born as a little baby in a manger so
someday He would grow up and pay
for our sins by dying on the cross. He
rose again, and He still lives today!


The Bible says in Matthew 1:21 "And
she shall bring forth a Son, and thou
shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall
save His people from their sins." You
see, Christmas all started when Jesus
was born. That is why the holiday is
called Christmas, it starts with the Je-
sus Christ's name, CHRISTmas, the
birthday of God's own Son born in a
manger.
When we give a gift to someone, it
should be done because we want to
give it, not because we hope they give
us a gift too. We should give it to show
we love them and to show Christ's
love. The greatest gift has ever been
given is the one God gave to you and
me, and to the whole world, the' gift of
His Son, Jesus!
So remember, as you are celebrating
the wonderful holiday CHRISTmas, do
as the wise men did when they fol-
lowed the star and it led them to Jesus
in the manger. They rejoiced with ex-
ceeding great joy!
Enjoy the Christmas holidays, re-
member the greatest gift that has ever
been given is Jesus, and that is why


ring Christ's love
Christmas is a time for sharing Christ's rating Jesus birthday!
love! kids in the New Year!
Have a wonderful Christmas cele-


God bless you
Love, Aunt Pam

COLLEGE & CAREER CORNER


Quality over quantity


Nose RenneKamp


By Rose Rennekamp,
Column No. 69
Any school counselor
has experience with the
Super Student.
This is the student
that has it all-perfect
grades, extracurricular
activities, and an im-
i pressive number com-
munity service hours.
They may be the cap-
tain of the football
team, president of the
student council, or
class valedictorian.
Their future seems
locked-up ,.-acceptance
to their college of
choice accompanied by
a hefty scholarship
Packagee"
Counselors will tell
you nothing is guaran-
teed.
College admission of-
fices want strong stu-
dents,. but they don't
expect every applicant
to have a 4.0 GPA and a
perfect 36 on the ACT.
Academics are definite-
ly important, but col-
leges also. want stu-
dents who have heart,
enthusiasm and a de-
sire to succeed, mean-
ing even the Super Stu-
dent might not make
the final cut. One way
students can demon-
strate their passion is
through extracurricular
activities.


Almost every high
school in the U.S. offers
extracurricular activi-
ties, such as music, aca-
demic clubs, and
sports. Extracurricular
activities play multiple
roles for students: they
promote teamwork, en-
courage individual re-
sponsibility,:and estab-
lish school and commu-
nity spirit. Extracurric-
ular activities also en-
hance college applica-
tions. According to a
2003 study by.. Child.
Trends researchers,
teens who consistently
participated in ex-
tracurricular activities
from .eighth- through
12th-grade were 70 per-
cent more likely to at-
tend college. This .in-
formation is similar to
a 1992 study from the
National Center for Ed-
uication Statistics,
where the. percentage
of extracurricular-in-
volved students plan-
ning to :earn a bache-
lor's degree or higher
outnumbered the stu-
dents who weren't in-
volved in activities -
68.2 percent compared
to .48.2 percent. Howev-
er, the research doesn't
suggest students run
out and join every club
and activity available
in their school 'and
community.
Admission officers
don't have a checklist
of requirements when
it comes to extracurric-
ulars and it isn't about
"doing it all." They'd
rather see a person's in-
dividuality and. com-
mitment. Still, students
need to explore the
possibilities before


they find something in
which they really excel
or ,.truly enjoy. y nd
that's fine. In fact, it's
encouraged. Colleges
won't look down on
someone who sampled
six activities his fresh-
men year of high
school and dropped
half- at the start of 10th-
grade. Likewise, they
won't raise the red flag
w1-hen the show choir
suddenly appears on,
an applicant's form
their senior year. Peo-
ple change. Interests,
change.
ACT'S college plan-
ning checklist suggests
students join or contin-
ue at least one ex-
tracurricular activity
each year of high
school. Again, this does
not mean the same ac-
tivity from year to year
as circumstances can,
change. I knew a young:
man who played bas-
ketball since he was 10.'
The autumn before his.
junior year, he broke
his leg, benching him
for riost of the basket-
ball season. Bored
without his regular af-
ter-school practices, he
sat in on a friend's im-
provisational acting
meeting. Intrigued
with the spontaneous
dialogue, he began par-
ticipating, eventually
performing in that
year's state high school
.improvisational com-
petition.
However, practices
for basketball and im-
provisational acting
overlapped one anoth-
er. He couldn't do both.
So he made the choice
his senior year to leave
f


basketball infavor of
the high school's the-
ater arts group. He said
it was the best decision.
He later studied theater
in college, helping form
an improvisational
comedy troupe that
toured throughout the
Midwest. He graduat-
ed last winter a theater-
arts major and several'
acting credits to his
name.
Extracurricular activ-
ities, open the door to
many possibilities.
Don't be afraid to ex-
plore them, but don't
take on to much, either.
At the end of the day,


when it comes to ex-
tracurricular activities
and college admis-
sions. choose quality
over quantity.

Haven Hospice named a Florida Pacesetter in promoting living wills


Aging with Dignity,
\\ / 7 a national advocate of
dignified care for the
Elderly and disabled,
has recognized
Haven Hospice as a
Florida Pacesetter
2006-one of eight or-
ganizations in the state selected for taking a lead-
ing role in promoting living wills.
Aging with Dignity Foundation Presideht Paul
Malley presented the award at a 10th anniversary
celebration recently in Tallahassee, attended by
Gov. Jeb and first lady Columba Bush.
Haven Hospice Executive Director Tim Bowen
said he was delighted to hear of the Florida Pace-
setter award. "As an organization whose mission
is to provide comprehensive, compassionate care
that respects each person's needs, beliefs and
wishes, we are committed to educating people
facing life-limiting illness and end-of-life deci-
sions," Bowen said.
Since 2003, Haven Hospice has distributed more
than 5,000 copies of Aging With Dignity's "Five
Wishes" advance directive as part of its commu-
nity outreach efforts. The document, which meets
legal requirements in 40 states including Florida,
enables people to express how they want to be
treated should they become seriously ill and un-
able to speak for themselves. The five wishes are:
1. Which person you want to make health care de-
cisions for you when you can't make them; 2. The
kind of medical treatment you want or don't
want; 3. How comfortable you want to be; 4. How
you want people to treat you; and 5. What you
want your loved ones to know.
"We see our role in distributing 'Five Wishes' as
an essential part of our service delivery approach,
which we call 'Commitment to Caring,'" Bowen
said. "The program is unique because it is based
on the importance of understanding and meeting
the diverse needs of all the people we serve."
'Commitment to Caring' is Haven Hospice's inno-
vative and multifaceted service delivery model
designed to enhance access to care, responsive-
ness and customer satisfaction. It recognizes and
addresses the multiple needs of all customer.
groups: patients.,and families, physicians, hospi-
tals and.-EoiitgJim care facilities.
The Aging with Dignity award is the newest
honor "for Haven Hospice-also selected by the
Centers 'for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS) as one of only two hospice organizations
nationwide to serve as a demonstration site for ex-
ploring new ways to increase access to hospice
care for patients in rural areas.
Haven Hospice is North. Central Florida's expert
in end-of-life and palliative care.. Licensed in
Florida since 1980 as a not-for-profit hospice,
Haven Hospice has served more than 30,000 pa-'
tients and families.
Haven pioneered the de- ....


velopment of stand-alone care centers working
to provide a home-like environment for patients
whose situation makes it impossible for them to
stay at home. The Haven mission is to serve peo-
ple and their communities affected by life-limit-

There's more to being a REALTOR than simply getting a real estate
license. It requires a strict commitment to a Code of Ethics. A strict
commitment to a high standard of conduct.

Not all license holders' make this commitment. They don't think
the time, money and effort are worthwhile. But a REALTOR makes
the investments it takes to serve you more professionally.


lether you're buying, selling or leasing real estate, it makes
ct sense to look for the sign of the REALTOR.
