Breakfast


with


Santa


Submitted by Tracy Woodward
Santa thrilled a roomful of kids at Breakfast With Santa
at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park on Sat-
urday, Dec. 9. About 116 people braved the cold morning
to eat pancakes and sausage prepared and donated by
Country Cafe owner Linda Petrillo.
The syrup was pouring slowly due to the near freezing
temperature, but the kids had a warm welcome for Santa.
The White Springs Police Youth Program provided Santa
with two large bags of toys that were won by two lucky
children in the crowd.
Wal-mart donated film so that each child received a pic-
ture of his special time with the jolly old elf. White
Springs Mayor Joseph McKire was also on hand to cele-
brate Santa's arrival.
Special thanks to the staff of Stephen Foster who decked
out Nelly Bly's with Christmas decor and to Florine
Roberts and Marlene Shaw who helped the breakfast line
go smoothly.

the future. You're looking

don't know what the out-

is no hope in sight. You start
your treatments. You're
nauseous and you have no
hair. You're exhausted from
caring for your child and
- from the agony of knowing
there's nothing you can do
to make him healthy again.
S ,. You couldn't possibly feel
any worse.
Until...
The sun starts to rise. The
tumor .is shrinking. Your
treatments are working.
You're getting your appetite
back. Your child feels well


enough
to go out and play for just a
few minutes. There is hope.
It is now daylight and
you're in remission. You
have your life back. You've
made it through the night
and the darkness. You cele-
brate life in the daylight
knowing that the darkness
of nighttime is behind you.

LEGAL NOTICE

Additional Homestead for Senior Citizens
Deadline, March 1, 2007
If your answer is yes to all of the following questions you may be eligible to
qualify for an additional $25,000 homestead.

1. Do you meet the eligibility requirements for the original $25,000
Homestead?
2. Are you 65 years of age as of January 1, 2007? .
3. Is your household income $22,693 or less? (2006 Figure, could change
for 2007)

In November 1998 voters approved an amendment to the Florida
constitution authorizing the state legislature to pass a law allowing counties and
municipalities to grant an additional homestead exemption of up to $25,000 to
persons at least 65 years of age and whose total household income does not
exceed $22,693. (This could change for 2007)
This additional homestead does not apply to all ad valorem taxes. A county
or municipality must enact an ordinance that sets the amount of an exemption,
not to exceed $25,000, and may specify whether or not the additional
exemption applies to all tax levies including dependent special districts and
municipal service taxing units.
Proof of age and income documentation is required. Income documentation
is required for everyone living in the household. The Hamilton County Property
Appraiser will start taking applications on January 2, 2007. Our office is located
inside the courthouse, room 108. Please feel free to give us a call if you have
any questions at 792-2791.

Hamilton County High School


Trojan Bas


aetball


Submitted by
Coach Patrick Murphy

The Hamilton County
High School varsity boys
basketball team participat-
ed in the prestigious First
Coast Classic in Macclenny
over the holidays.
The Trojans played 4A
Stanton Prep in their first
game and won with a dis-
ruptive defense and good
passing.
On Friday, HCHS trav-
eled back to Macclenny for
a semifinal battle with Fort
White. However, with re-
venge on their mind from
an earlier loss to the Tro-
jans, Fort White defeated
the Trojans 74-61.
HCHS also dropped the
final game to 5A Jax Wolf-
son, although the effort was
very good for the Trojans.
So, the Trojans left the clas-
sic with an 11-3 record.


Game 15'vs Taylor in
Jasper (Friday, Jan. 5)
HCHS 57 TAYLOR 66
In a tough district battle
against visiting Taylor
County, the Trojans fell 66-
57. It was an inspired effort
by the Bulldogs but the Tro-'
jans hung tough until the
end.
Josh Jones 22 points, 13
rebounds, five assists and
two steals. Vincent Bailey -
16 points, 12 rebounds, and
three blocked shots. Ti'Wan
Cooks 10 points, three re-
bounds, two steals and nine
deflections. Eric Jackson -
four points/, three rebounds
and six.' assists. Anthony
. .Stev'ens four points, four
rebounds. Jeremy Claridy -
one point, one rebound and
one steal. Glenn Sheppard -
five rebounds. Malcolm
Pollock four rebounds.
Josh Paul, Gareth Johnson,
and Robin McClain added a
rebound each with Johnson
adding a steal and Paul
adding an assist.


The Trojans won the re-
bounding battle 48-33 but
turnovers and poor shoot-
ing contributed to the
tough loss. HCHS hustled
and battled but it wasn't
enough on this night.

Game 16 vs Madison in
Madison (Saturday, Jan. 6)
HCHS 73 MADISON 61
With no time to worry
about the previous night's
first district loss of the sea-
son, the Trojans traveled to
Madison to battle district
foe and rival Madison
High. Madison came into
the game, having earned
fourth place out of 16 teams
in the Freeport Christmas
Tournament. The Cowboys
had also just defeated their
rival Jefferson County High
by 15 points the night be-
fore.
The Cowboys jumped out
and scored the first nine
points of the game on the
Trojans, putting them
in a quick hole. Jackson
made the first two Tro-
jan baskets on two
jumpers and, by the
end of the first quarter
the Trojans had cut the
Cowboy lead to two,
19-17.
With a strong defen-
sive effort that caused a lot
of turnovers, HCHS battled
back to take a 38-30 lead at
the half.
That lead increased to
nine by the end of the third
quarter and ballooned to 21
early in the fourth, high-
lighted by an exciting dunk
by Jones. The bench provid-
ed solid minutes as the Tro-
jans cruised to a 73-61 victo-
ry.
It was a complete and to-
tal team effort with every
player contributing. Head
coach Patrick Murphy was
very proud of the entire
team's effort and attitude,
especially after losing three
straight games.
Jones 23 points, nine
steals, four rebounds and
six assists. Cooks 14
points, four assists, and two
rebounds. Bailey 13
points, four rebounds, and
five blocked shots. Jackson -
10 points, three rebounds,
two steals, seven assists.
Paul five points, six re-


bounds and two steals. Pol-
lock three points, three re-
bounds, and two steals.
Claridy two points, three
rebounds and two assists.
Sheppard two points, one
rebound and an assist.
Johnson one point, two re-
bounds and a steal. Stevens
- three rebounds and a
steal. McClain two deflec-
tions.
All in all, it was a solid
road victory against a dis-
trict opponent. The win
raised the Trojans record to
12-4 overall while they
moved to 3-1 in the district,

Game 19 at FSU High,
(Saturday, Jan. 13)
HCHS 41 FL HIGH 36
The HCHS Trojans, trav-
eled to Tallahassee to take
on district foe Florida High
Saturday with a chance to
clinch the #1 seed for the
district tournament.
The Trojans scored first to
make it 2-0 but that would
be the only time they would
lead in the first half. Both
teams got off to a slow start
shooting-wise. The Semi-
noles took an 18-8 lead with
two minutes left in the first
half. Hamilton ended the
half on a 7-1 run, highlight-
ed by a three-pointer by
sophomore Cooks, to make
the score 19-15 at halftime
with Florida High in the
lead.
The Trojans started the


second half with a three-
pointer by Jackson, cutting
the FSU High lead to one
point. Later in the third
quarter, Jones scored on a
drive to tie the score at 22
with 4:50 remaining.
' Florida High made a
three-pointer to give the
Seminoles a three-point
lead but the Trojans came
right back. Jackson passed
to Jones for a layup. Jones
was fouled on the play and
made the free throw to tie
the score again at 25. Jones
scored again at the end of
the quarter to give the Tro-
jans their first lead since 2-
0. The score entering the
fourth quarter was HCHS
27 FL HIGH 26.
The Seminoles started the
final quarter with two free
throws to regain the lead.
However, Jackson came
back and sank a tough
jumper on the baseline, giv-
ing the Trojans a 29-28 lead
with .-\n minutes left in the
game.
Once again, the game
went back and forth as FSU
took a 30-29 lead. Cooks
made a running jumper in
the lane to give the Trojans
a one point lead, however.
Then, after gathering the re-
bound on a missed shot,
Johnson made a huge put-
back layup, giving the Tro-
jans their biggest lead of the
game, 33-30, with four min-
utes left.
Shortly after, Bailey
grabbed a rebound, on the
defensive end of the court,
passed ahead to Jones, who
made a terrific pass to a
streaking Cooks, who had
beaten everyone down: the
floor for a layup and a five


point Trojan lead. After a
Florida High free throw,
Jones passed to Sheppard ,
who made a layup in heavy
traffic to give the Trojans a
37-31 lead with 1:41 left in
the game and providing
enough cushion for Hamil-
ton grab the victory in Tal-
lahassee, 41-36.
It was a tough defensive
battle and it took a lot of
heart for the Trojans to
overcome a poor shooting
night in a hostile environ-
ment to win a big district
contest.
The win raised Hamil-
ton's overall record to 15-4
on the year. Most impor-
tantly, the win clinched the
#1 seed for the district tour-
nament, to be held Feb. 6 in
Perry. HCHS is 4-1 in dis-
trict play with one district
game left against Madison
at home on Saturday the
20th.

White Springs


rT w. r


By Johnny Bullard


The month of January is
now "half flown" and is
moving at a steady pace.
This has been a very mild
winter thus far, and we can
be thankful that we live in a
state where we enjoy most-
ly mild weather. Looking at
the weather reports this
past weekend in the Mid-
west, where folks were
snowed in or roads were so
slick with ice that it was
hazardous for folks to drive
makes me happy that I live
right here in the Sunshine
State.
Speaking of the Sunshine
State, several folks from
White Springs traveled
down to Gainesville on Sat-
urday and attended the cel-
ebration honoring the Uni-
versity of Florida Gators
Football Team on their re-
cent national champi-
onship. Approximately
70,000 people gathered at
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to
cheer on the Orange and
Blue. I know all those who
attended had a great time.
The Stephen Foster Day
Celebration was held at the
Tower Auditorium on
Monday, Jan. 15. I under-
stand that it was a good
program and well attend-
ed. Martha Nelson does a
good job organizing this
program that celebrates the
composer of Florida's State
Song "Old Folks At
Home" better known to
many as "Way Down Upon
the Suwannee River."
I had a nice chat with
Lynnis Mincey, Winter
Haven, on Mondai, Tan 15.
Lynnis;i along v.itv-.-hus-
band, Jerry, ,ire major 4up-
porters of our Florida Folk
Festival and many other
programs at the Foster


Center. Jerry is a Florida
singer and songwriter and
has appeared for the past
several years at the Florida
Folk Festival. Lynnis stated
she would be .returning be-
fore too much longer to
their mountain home near
Canton, N.C. We appreci-
ate them.
Stephen Foster State Folk
Culture Center will be wel-
coming a new park manag-
er around the middle of
February. Benjamin Faure
and family will be coming
to White Springs from the
Florida Panhandle where
he has been park manager
of Henderson Beach State
Park, near Destin, and a
couple of other parks in
that general area. We are
very excited about the ar-
rival of this new family. I
am sure White Springs will
welcome them with open
arms, as we welcome all
those who arrive to lead
our beloved Stephen Fos-
ter. It is our hope they will
become an integral part of
our community, as the park
and community work hand
in hand on so many, pro-
jects.
The month of February
always reminds us of the
Olustee Festival in Lake
City. There will be "big do-
ings" the weekend of Feb.
16-18.
There is always a big
downtown Festival, re-en-
actment, etc. Lake City and
Columbia County goes all
out for this event. Our
Stephen Foster staff is very
involved with the Olustee
festivall, since tHe parkk
manager is also the Olustee
park manger. We hope the
weather will be great and
the festival, a great success.

Lillian Norris' article
about the late Harvey
Oehlert this past week was
very nice. I can remember,
for years, he would sing a
version of the "Miss Amer-
ica" song at the Miss
Hamilton County High
School pageant and I al-
ways loved to hear him
sing, "There she is, our
Miss Hamilton." Mr.
Oehlert contributed a great
deal to our community,
and we miss him very
much.
On Saturday morning,
Steve Crapps, Live Oak,
and I had breakfast at the
Country Cafe. While there,
I shared a visit with a num-
ber of home folks. I was
sorry to hear that Mrs. LF
"Kitty" Carver Jr., has been
a patient at Lake Shore
Hospital, where she has
been hospitalized for pneu-
monia. Please keep her in
your prayers. She is my
neighbor and a life long
friend.
Mr. and Mrs. Tom
Moore, Miami, recently
moved to their home, the
old JW and Ruby Shaw
home, located on Bridge
Street, White Springs. We
welcome the Moores, and
we wish them all the best.
A note from Norman and
Rochelle Morris, San Anto-
nio, Fla., was most wel-
comed. They own the lot
next to Mike Harris' prop-
erty where Janet Moses'
shop was located before
she moved it to Madison.
They recently took a trip to
Egypt and sent me a photo
of them in front of a pyra-
mid. Rochelle has been
singing for a number of
years at the Florida Folk
Festival. She sang for years
with the New Sand Moun-
tain Wildcats, and now
does solo work and sings
with them from time to
time. They are dear friends,
and it is always good to
hear from them.

laws, vehicle maintenance and inspec-
tion, liability, first aid, and fire suppres-
sion. James and PSA coordinator William

hone their road skills.

The second Pure Love
Conference promoting teen
abstinence and Godly puri-
ty will be held at the Mathis
Auditorium located at 2300
N Ashley St. in Valdosta,
Ga., on Saturday, Jan. 20.
Over 800 parents and mid-
and senior-high students at-
tended the conference last
year, and over 4,000 stu-
dents learned about absti-
nence in city and county
school assembly presenta-
tions.
This year the goal of the
Conference is to reach more
students and parents. Teen
abstinence is a radical idea
in our sex-saturated culture.
Parents must be proactive in
this area and talk with their
children about their choices.
This conference provides
parents with the informa-
tion they need to open the


dialogue, and provides stu-
dents with the tools and in-
formation they need to
make smart and Godly
choices for their life.
The conference is divided
into a morning session for
Middle- School (sixth -
eighth grade) students and
an afternoon session for Se-
nior High (ninth 12th
grade) students. Parents are
encouraged to attend with
their teen if possible.
There will be high-energy
musical entertainment and
break out sessions during
the day. Gary Brown, Amer-
ica's "Internet Pastor," will
talk about the dangers of the
Internet. Medical doctors
will discuss sexual risks.
Keynote speaker Keith
Deltano will present a pow-
erful abstinence message to
young people.


Deltano also spoke to stu-
dents this week at schools in
the Hamilton County
School District as well as
schools in the Valdosta
School System and the
Lowndes County School
System.
The Pure Love conference
is sponsored by the Valdos-
ta Pregnancy Support Clinic
and the Fellowship of Chris-
tian Athletes.

tration is available at

Live Oak Beverage Barn celebrates 4 years in business


Staff
Clyde and Cheryl Evans,
owners of the Live Oak Bever-
age Barn, are celebrating four
years in business. The Live Oak
Beverage Barn is a drive- thru
convenience store. Owners
Clyde and Cheryl were intro-
duced to the concept of a drive-
through convenience store from
other areas of the country. The
idea was to be the ultimate con-
venience store with true conve-
nience! Customers just drive
through and tell one of the
friendly employees what they
want from the large selection of
soft drinks, snacks and many
more treats and products.
After moving to Live Oak,
Clyde and Cheryl decided to
open up Live *Oak's very own
drive-through convenience
store. The Live Oak Beverage.
Barn has many products like:
milk, eggs, bread, chips, great
sweet tea, chili, soups and a
large variety of tobacco prod-
ucts at reasonable prices. What
Clyde and Cheryl enjoy most
about their business is meeting
new people, getting to know
their customers and learning
something new every day
about business.


They have been married
for 28 years and have two
children, Cameron and
Georgianna, and three
grandchildren. ..

thusiasts and enjoy spending
time with their friends on trips.
They also enjoy spending time
with their family.

CFO Sink announces nearly
$700,000 in homeland security
funds awarded to state bomb
team, laboratory
Alex Sink, the chief financial officer of Florida
and state fire marshal, announced today that the
Division of State Fire Marshal's Explosive Ordi-
nance Device (EOD) Unit and Forensic Labora-
tory have been awarded nearly $700,000 in
homeland security funds to buy equipment to
protect Florida communities.
"We can never let our guard down when it
comes to being prepared for a potential disaster,
whether natural or manmade," Sink said. "We
are committed to doing all we can to make sure
we are trained, equipped and ready, and I thank
the Department of Homeland Security for sup-
porting us in that."
The EOD unit, or bomb team, is part of the B ",
reau of Fire and Arson Investigations, and its"
members are trained to safely handle, transport,
dispose of and investigate explosive or incendi-
arv incidents. The members also educate hun-
dreds of state, local and civilian personnel ever)'
year. The bomb team is currently ranked num-
ber 12 in the nation for the number of calls re-
sponded to for all bomb teams and number two
in the nation for state government bomb teams.
The grant money will be used to buy a robot,
bomb suits and other equipment for the bomb
team as well as equipment for the division's Bu-
reau of Forensic Fire and Explosives Analysis,
which operates the state laboratory that sup-
ports fire and arson investigations.
The State Fire Marshal's Office has helped lo-
cal fire departments get more than $32 million in
homeland security funds for equipment and
training. The funds have helped local agencies
establish, train and equip 50 technical rescue
teams, seven urban search and rescue teams and
to better equip and train 28 existing regional
hazardous materials teams.
Homeland security funds also paid for the
placement of a permanent urban search and res-
cue training center at the Florida State Fire Col-
lege that is the only "post-blast" collapse simula-
tor providing fire and smoke conditions in the
United States.
As a statewide elected officer of the Florida
Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink over-
sees the Department of Financial Services, a mul-
ti-division state agency responsible for manage-
ment of state funds and unclaimed property, as-
sisting consumers who request information and
help related to financial services, and investigat-
ing financial fraud. Sink also serves as the State
Fire Marshal.

How safe is fluoride for my child?


Fluoride is found in everything from drinking water to toothpaste. The public has
long been told that fluoride is instrumental in preventing dental decay, but there are
detractors who believe that fluoride is an unsafe substance that should not be used -
especially for children's dental health.
Fluoride has been studied extensively for more than 50 years, from when the U.S.
decided its use should be part of a greater public health measure. It is one of the most
extensively studied health supplements in the history of science. Major health
organizations around the world have endorsed it as safe, including the American Dental
Association, the American Medical Association, the Environmental Protection Agency,
the World Health Organization, the National Research Council, and many others. So
why the doubts?


I've heard fluoride is toxic.


Just like many other chemicals and substances, fluoride gets a bad name because it
can be toxic in high doses. In fact, fluoride has been used in rat poisons and insecticides
because it is dangerous at extremely high levels, none of which are ever present in
dental health products. Many other seemingly mundane substances may also be
unhealthy if consumed in large amounts, such as salt, over-the-counter medications,
and even types of vitamins and minerals. Experts feel that there is no reason to
condemn the use of something because it can be dangerous in high doses. Properly
regulating use is more practical.
If fluoride is so safe, why shouldn't my young child use toothpaste containing
fluoride?
Fluoride occurs naturally or is supplemented in public water supplies in many areas.
Typically, the amount of fluoride present is 1 part per million. The sodium fluoride that
is added to drinking water is exactly the same level as what occurs naturally the ideal
level for optimum health.
Young children who are unable or do not know how to spit out excessive toothpaste
from brushing may end up consuming more than is healthy, especially for their small
size. As such, unless a child is able to spit out toothpaste while brushing, he or she
should not use a product that contains fluoride. There are many fluoride-free
toothpastes on the market that can teach toddlers how to brush to get them ready for
regular toothpaste.
Why can too much fluoride be bad?
Excessive consumption of fluoride can actually be detrimental to the very objects it is
supposed to protect the teeth. Enamel fluorosis is the name of the condition caused by
ingesting too much fluoride. In very minor cases it can result in white specs or
imperfections on the surface of the teeth. In serious cases the tooth enamel may be
rough, pitted, and hard to clean. Plus, defects can carry over to a child's permanent
teeth. Sometimes when a water supply% has a high le% el of fluoride naturally, children

suffer from fluorosis. The safest way to consume the right amount of fluoride is through
carefully monitored fluoridated water supplies or by drinking bottled fluoridated water.
When my child starts using fluoride toothpaste, how much is recommended?
A pea-sized amount or even smaller will provide enough cavity prevention and be
safe, even if the.child swallows a little toothpaste in the brushing process. Focus more
on technique when teaching a child to brush rather than excessively coating brush
bristles with toothpaste.
What else can I do to safeguard my child's dental health?
As soon as your child's first baby (or milk) teeth arrive, you should start practicing
oral health. To limit the amount of dental caries or decay, do not send a child to bed
with a bottle or sippy cup full of milk or juice. Additionally, do not dip pacifiers.in
honey or other sweet substances before administering to a child. This can cause
damaging substances to remain close to your child's teeth for a long time.
For very young children, wipe the gums and teeth with a wet rag or use a special
rubber finger brush that is sold to clean off any bacteria and food that may be on baby's
teeth. As children grow, explore the variety of soft-bristled toothbrushes and pastes that
are available to clean teeth. Make sure you help toddlers who aren't very dexterous to
brush properly.
Most dentists and pediatricians also recommended that habits such as thumb sucking
or pacifier use be discouraged after age 2 (many children give up this behavior naturally
around this time anyway). These habits may cause permanent teeth to later grow in
improperly.

State completes first phase of



purchase to protect Silver Springs


TALLAHASSEE The state recently completed the
first phase of a 4,471-acre purchase near Silver
Springs as part of the Florida First Magnitude
Springs Florida Forever project. A partnership with
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Marion County,
the full 4,471 acres was purchased by TNC from
Avatar Properties and will be resold to the state in
two phases. With the first purchase of approximate-
ly 2,677 acres complete, the remaining 1,793 acres,
will be purchased next fiscal year.
"Silver Springs is a popular destination for visitors
and an important part of Florida's heritage," said
Governor Jeb Bush. "This purchase protects almost
4,500 acres near one of the largest artesian springs in
the world from development, and preserves the wa-
ter quality of the spring and wildlife habitat for fu-
ture generations."
This purchase protects habitat for rare and endan-
gered species, including the bald eagle, Florida black
bear and gopher tortoise. With 13 known sinkholes,
the area acts as a pristine recharge area for one of the
largest first magnitude springs in the nation. In ad-



Two year program

As the New Year begins, 26 agricultural produc-
ers from North, central and South Florida will em-
bark on a two-year program designed to position
them as future leaders of the state's agricultural
community. About six times a year they will inter-
act with Florida Farm Bureau staff and leaders,
legislators, regulators and other producers from
Florida and other parts of the nation, getting prac-
tical experience in leadership.
The group comprises the latest class in the Flori-
da Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmer and
Rancher Leadership Group, a program for rising
leaders between the ages of 18 and 35.
"Farm Bureau's success can be traced to the ex-
ceptional leadership found among its active
farmer members" said John Hoblick, who in Octo-
ber was elected president of the Federation. "In or-
der for the organization to maintain this heritage,
it is vital for new leaders to be developed to guide
the organization in the future."
Hoblick, a Volusia County fern producer, is him-
self a product of both the YF&R Young Farmer and
Rancher Program and the Wedgeworth Leader-
ship Group.
The new members of the YF&R Leadership
Group are: Chris and Kelly Lyons of Mayo,
Stephen and Tracie Fulford of Monticello, Bryan
and Wendi Jennings of White Springs, Charlie and
Kelli Hofer of Ocala, Justin and Kelly Mosley of
Middleburg, Clayton and Erin Archey of Oviedo,
Kyle Story of Babson Park, Maurice and Leslie
Turgeau of Lee, Josue Aponte of Ft. Myers, Jason
McKendree of Brandenton, Trey Whitehurst III of
Okeechobee, Ben and April Butler of Lorida,
Roland Yee of Port St. Lucie, Weston and Leslie
Pryor of Moore Haven, Lucas and Kendra Killam
of Jay and Ben and Jamie Ellison of Pace.
In addition to the Leadership Group, The Young
Farmer and Rancher program promotes three con-
tests designed to recognize leadership and in-
volvement. They are the Outstanding YF&R Con-


edition, Silver Springs has served as the setting for the
"Sea Hunt" television series starring Lloyd Bridges
and many feature films, including the film "Hoot"
released in 2005.
"This purchase is critical to the protection of one of
the largest springs in the nation and one of the state's
most famous natural resources," said Keith Foun-
tain, director of land acquisition for The Nature Con-
servancy. "Not only does this acquisition maintain
the integrity of Silver Springs, the site is primarily
rare sandhill habitat, which is home to many rare
species."
The Florida First Magnitude Springs Florida For-
ever project, which the acquisition is a part of, focus-
es on land near Florida's first magnitude springs that
discharge more than 100 cubic feet of water per sec-
ond. Florida's springs, scattered through northern
and central Florida, contribute to the Floridan
Aquifer and the drinking .water of Florida's resi-
dents. The springs, with clear, continuously flowing
waters, are among Florida's most important natural
resources and are famous tourist attractions.


"With phase one complete, we are even closer to
ensuring that Silver Springs, which pumps out
enough water every day to supply the entire city of
New York, is protected," said Florida Department of
Environmental Protection Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "This acquisition was essential to maintain
the health and wellbeing of the springs for many
years to come."
The Florida Springs Initiative, established by Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush in 2001, is the first comprehensive, co-
ordinated plan to restore and protect Florida's more
than 700 freshwater springs. Last year the Florida
Springs Initiative set aside more than $300,000. to
protect spring ecosystems, water quality and flowv
within Florida's award-winning state park system.
The 10-year, $3 billion Florida Forever program es-
tablished by Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida Leg-
islature conserves environmentally sensitive land,
restores waterways and preserves important cultur-
al and historical resources. For more information,
