Dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) has is-
sued a warning about the
risks and dangers associat-
ed with carbon monoxide
(CO) exposure and poison-
ing.
"Carbon monoxide can
be fatal if the exposure is
severe enough," said DOH
Secretary M. Rony Fran-
cois. "The use of indoor
gas heaters and fire places
may lead to high exposures
if these devices are not di-
rectly vented to the outside
or if they malfunction.
Floridians should carefully
monitor themselves as well
as their loved ones when
using fuel-operated appli-
ances."
Invisible, odorless and
tasteless, CO is a highly
poisonous gas produced by
burning fuels such as gaso-
line, natural gas, kerosene,
charcoal and wood. Inside
a home, CO can come from
a gas-fueled furnace, gas
water heater, gas clothes
dryer, gas ranges, kerosene
space heaters, portable
generators, gas or charcoal
grills, fireplaces or wood
stoves.


At low concentrations,
CO causes fatigue in
healthy people and chest
pains for those with heart
disease. At higher concen-
trations, CO inhalation
causes impaired vision and
coordination, headaches,
dizziness, confusion, nau-
sea and death. The risk of
illness or death increases as
the concentration of CO in
the air and the duration of
exposure increase. Danger-
ous CO levels arise when
home appliances are used
incorrectly or are poorly
maintained.
Here are some very im-
portant precautions to help
prevent CO poisoning:
Be sure all combustion
appliances are installed
and used according to the
manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Have the heating
system inspected annually
by a qualified individual
such as an appropriately li-
censed contractor or a gas
utility representative. Have
exhaust ventilation sys-
tems, including chimneys,
flues and vents, checked
every year.
Never burn charcoal in-


Resurfacing on 1-10

in Suwannee County
Daytime lane closures began Monday, Jan. 22, on a
segment of Interstate 10 in western Suwannee County
that will be resurfaced, according to the Florida De-
partment of Transportation (FDOT).
The six-mile long segment begins at the Suwan-
nee/Madison County line and ends at the interchange
with US 90 west of Live Oak. Motorists are reminded
that the pavement will be uneven in areas since the fi-
nal layer of asphalt or friction course will not be reap-
plied until all lanes have been milled and resurfaced
with the structural course.
The entire project should be completed this summer.
For questions onthis project or others in the North
Florida area, contact the FDOT Public Information Of-
fice toll-free at 800-749-2967.


side a house, garage, vehi-
cle or tent not even in a
fireplace.
Avoid using unvented
gas or kerosene heaters in
enclosed spaces, especially
sleeping areas.
Never use a portable
generator indoors, includ-
ing in homes, garages,
basements, crawl spaces,
sheds and other enclosed
or partially enclosed areas.
Always locate portable


generators outdoors on a
dry surface, away from
doors, windows, vents and
air conditioning equipment
that could allow CO to
come indoors.
Never leave an automo-
bile running in a garage -
even with the garage door
open. Don't leave the rear
window or tailgate of a ve-
hicle open while driving.
CO from the exhaust can
be pulled inside the car,


van or camper.
Install CO alarms in your
home. Replace CO alarm
batteries once a year and
test alarms frequently.
Anyone who suspects
symptoms of CO poison-
ing should go outside im-
mediately. If possible, turn
off any operating combus-
tion appliances and leave
the doors open as you go
outside. If you have a poi-
soning emergency, call

er health costs, and high-
er achievement for this
upcoming generation of
Americans."
The study also shows
that while marijuana con-
tinues to be the most
commonly used illicit
drug among teens, cur-
rent use of marijuana has
dropped by 25 percent
over the past five years.
And for the single year
from 2005 to 2006, current
marijuana use dropped
by seven percent among
all three grades com-
bined.
Teen use of ampheta-
mines, particularly
methamphetamine,
dropped significantly.
The prevalence rates for
meth use in all categories,
for all three grades, is ei-
ther the lowest or among
the lowest recorded since
the question was first in-
cluded in the MTF sur-
vey.
"The Justice Depart-
ment is committed to pro-
tecting teens from the de-
structive effects of drug
use," said Attorney Gen-
eral, Alberto R.-Gozales.
"Since 2001, we have seen
the number of young peo-
ple using drugs, especial-


ly methamphetamine,
steadily decline. These
decreases are an encour-
aging sign that the Ad-
ministration's ongoing ef-
forts to combat drug
abuse are helping Ameri-
can's children stay away
from drugs."
Monitoring the Future
also noted reductions in
the following drug cate-
gories between 2001 and
2006, including: Marijua-
na use is down in all cate-
gories for all grades com-
bined. Use of cigarettes is
down since 2001 in all
four use categories (life-
time, past month, daily,
and more than one-half
pack per day) in all three
grades. Youth use of alco-
hol was also down across
the board in all five use
categories (lifetime, past
year, past month, daily,
and more than five drinks
in a row in the last
weeks) and in. all three
grades over five years.
The use of steroids was
down 40.2 percent, 36.8
percent, and 20.6 percent
for lifetime, past year,
and past month use, re-
spectively for all three
grades combined. De-
clines in the halludino-

matic, declining by as
much as 50 percent to
two-thirds.
An area of growing con-
cern is the use of prescrip--
tion drugs among eighth,'
10th, and 12th graders. In-
deed, this year's survey
shows that the use of
OxyContin is the only
drug that has seen an in-
crease among all three
grades combined: past
year use increased 30 per-
cent. In addition, lifetime
use of sedatives among
seniors increased 18 per-
cent since 2001, and past
year use of Vicodin re-
mained stable for all three
grades'.
"The Monitoring the Fu-
ture study certainly re-
veals great news today for
American's youth and for
the Media Campaign, but
we must not consider the
job done," said Robert W.
Denniston, Director of the
National Youth A n ti Drug
Media Campaign. "Teens
report that their parents
seldom stay current with
the threats posed by pro-
drug sources of misinfor-
mation, such as Internet
content that normalizes
and trivializes drug use.'
Parents need to keep talk-
ing to their kids about the
dangers of drug use and
stay on top of current
technologies that could
pose additional risks to
their teens' health and
safety."

paign, working closely
with the Partnership for a.
Drug-Free America, has
made great strides in its
efforts to alert teens and
parents about the dangers
and harms of drug use,
including marijuana. The
Media Campaign's new
youth campaign, Above
the Influence, encourages
teens to reject negative in-
fluences in their lives; not
only drugs themselves,
but also pro-drug influ-
ences from peers, pop cul-
ture, and technology
sources.
However, budget cuts
in recent years have.
forced the Media Cam-
paign to substantially
scale back on its advertis-
ing and public education
budgets. Due to the limit-
ed funds the most recent
parent television advertis-
ing campaign that was
launched in early Febru-
ary 2006 was the only one
that targeted parents last
year. There is concern that
ongoing budget restric-
tions are starting to pro-
duce a flattening" out in
the "perception of harm"
indicator among teens,
which is widely under-
stood as the best predictor
, of future drug use.

Free registration for Weight Watchers meetings in Madison until March 10


As 2007 rolls in, a new
national survey conducted
on behalf of Weight Watch-
ers reveals that over 55.
percent of adults in Ameri-
ca will look in the mirror to
see an overweight "before"
rather than the healthy pic-


Energy assistance is im-
portant to all that receive
it, but it is critical for the
elderly who are more at
risk for life threatening ill-
ness or death if their home
is too cold in the winter.
Older adults are vulner-
able to hypothermia or ab-
normally low body tem-
perature. The drop in
body temperature can be a
result of staying in a cold
place for too long. Accord-
ing to the National Insti-
tutes of Health, hypother-
mia kills about 600 Ameri-
cans every year and half
of those are 65 years old
or older.
As the body ages, its
ability to endure long pe-
riods of exposure to cold
is lowered. Older people
are at an increased risk for
hypothermia because cer-
tain illnesses, such as dia-
betes and medicines, affect
the body's response to
cold. In addition to dress-
ing appropriately for the
outdoor climate, older
adults must make sure
their home is warm.
Hypothermia affects the
brain, making the victim
unable to think clearly or
move well. Signs to look
for that indicate hypother-
mia include confusion,
drowsiness, slowed or
slurred speech, shivering

sire, which will lead to a
New Year's resolution to
lose weight. In order to
help people lose weight in
a healthy way, Weight

al new locations, including


or stiffness in the arms
and legs, weak pulse, low
blood pressure, or poor
control over body move-
ments or slow reactions. If
you suspect that someone
is suffering from the cold
and you have a ther-
mometer available, take
the temperature and if it's
96 degrees or lower call
911 for emergency help.
.Energy assistance is
available for those 60 and
older who are having
problems keeping their
home warm. The Emer-
gency Home Energy As-
sistance for the Elderly
Program (EHEAEP) is
available for people who
meet income guidelines
and are experiencing an
energy-related crisis. A
crisis may be an impend-
ing cut-off of electricity, a
broken heating system, 'or
lack of fuel, wood, blan-
kets or heating unit.
Individuals interested in
applying for EHEAEP as-
sistance should call the El-

nearly two in five adult
Americans say that they
have "cheated" or given up
on a weight-loss program
in the past.
That is something that
Debbie Pharr, the meeting
leader in Madison, can re-
late to. Pharr understands
first-hand the challenges
involved in losing weight,
because she lost weight fol-
lowing Weight Watchers.
She also knows what it
takes to succeed arnd wants
to share the skills that she
used.
When people come to
Weight Watchers they will
see that the program is not
just a diet, it's a lifestyle
that offers tools, support,
food and activity plans
that are livable and effec-


tive. Meetings are an im-
portant part of how
Weight Watchers helps
members reach their goals;
in fact, people who attend
meetings lose three times
more weight than those
who try to lose weight on
their own.
Weight Watchers meet-
ings last approximately 35
minutes., Members should
attend one meeting each
week to learn about
healthy eating, gain moti-
vation and have their confi-
dential weigh-in to track

neglect or abandonment


and neglect at the hands of
their parents. Sometimes it is
necessary for children to be
removed from their homes
for the child's protection
and best interest. When this
happens the child becomes
part of a court case and is
dependent upon the court
and social service agencies
to make informed decisions
about their future.
The .Guardian ad Litem
Program trains caring adults
in our community to advo-
cate for the best interests of
these special children. The
Guardian ad Litem volun-
teer visits with a child regu-
larly, becomes the child's
spokesperson and ensures
social service agencies are
meeting the child's needs.
The mission of the program
is to help every child find a
safe, permanent home as
quickly as possible.
The Guardian ad Litem
volunteer participates in a
training program, which in-
cludes court observations,
classroom sessions, online
computer programs and
field training. Training top-
ics include how abuse af-
fects children mentally,
physically and emotionally,
along with methods of ad-
vocating for an abused


child's best interests.
To participate in the
Guardian ad Litem training
program, a volunteer must
be at least 19 years of age
and have a desire to help a
child. Adults- interested in
the volunteer program usu-
ally give between five to 10
hours monthly and do not
need any previous special-
ized training. You can vol-
unteer to help a child in
many different ways: moni-
toring a child assisting with
fundraisers, tforing a child
or providing office support.
Guardian ad Litem also
provides Christmas for chil-
dren in foster care, where no
child should go unnoticed
or wake With nothing under
the tree. Guardian ad Litem
arranges for Christmas food
baskets for the caretakers of
these children. The
Guardian ad Litem program
will assist a child in special
needs during their time in
foster care.
Please consider giving a
small amount of your time
to help change a child's fu-
ture; your time will make a
difference in the life of a
child.
For more information, call

Hamilton County High School Trojan Basketball


Submitted by
Patrick Murphy
Boys Basketball Head Coach

HCHS at Fort White, (Tuesday, Jan. 16)
HCHS 56 FORT WHITE 71
The Trojans went to Fort White Tuesday
night to meet the Indians for the third time
this season. HCHS won the first game of
the year and Fort White won
the second game during the
Christmas tournament in
Macclenny.
Wel, this would not be
the Trojans' night.as they
would fall to the Indians by
15 points. The Trojans put
up a decent effort but it was-
n't enough.
Josh Jones 20 points and 11
rebounds. Vincent Bailey -
eight points, six rebounds and
six blocked shots. Robin Mc-
Clain seven points. Howard
Webb six points and three
steals. Anthony Stevens four
points, nine rebounds, and five
steals. Malcolm Pollock three
points with two steals. Jeremy
Claridy, Eric Jackson, Josh Paul,
and Glenn Sheppard two points
each. Gareth Johnson one assist
and two deflections. Ti'Wan Cooks -
three assists.
The loss dropped Hamilton's record
to 15-5 on the year as they prepared for
Saturday's big rivalry game with Madison
High.
HCHS vs Madison,
(Saturday, Jan. 20)
HCHS 62 MADISON 63
It was Senior Night Saturday night in
Jasper as the Trojans took on district foe
and rival Madison County High. The Cow-
boys came into the game riding a two
game district winning streak and the Tro-
jans came into the game wanting to put a
halt to a one game losing skid of their own.
The Cowboys came out strong with four
quick points, the last two coming off of a,
dunk by Xavier Tillman. However, the
Trojans quickly got right back into the
game with a jumper by Jackson and a
three-pointer by Cooks. At the end of the
first quarter, the score was 14-12 HCHS.


The game went back and forth in the
second quarter with both teams showing a
lot of hustle and effort in a packed house.
Towards the end of the half, HCHS made a
run to take an eight-point lead at 31-23 on
a Sheppard jumper in the lane. However,
Madison made a jump shot of their own to
end the half with the Trojans leading 31-25.
With the score 37-34 early in the third


quarter, HCHS went on a ,
10-0 run, giving them a 47- 7
34 lead with about four
minutes left in the quarter.
After an odd delay with no time outs be-
ing called, the Cowboys scored six points
in a row, cutting the lead to 47-40. Cooks
came back down the court and was fouled.
He made two free throws to give the Tro-
jans a nine-point lead at 49-40. Unfortu-
nately, Madison scored the final six points
of the period, closing the gap to 49-46 en-
tering the final quarter.
Once again, the fourth quarter was a
close battle as the teams went back and
forth, scoring points while also playing
good defense. With the score tied at 54,
Jones made a jumper. Madison came back
down and made a shot of their own. Then,
Bailey canned a baseline jumper, giving


the Trojans a two-point lead at 58-56 with
about two minutes left in the game.
As the game went on, the score was tied
at 60 with 25 seconds remaining. Madi-
son's McDaniel received a pass and was
headed for the basket when he crashed
into Cooks under the Cowboy's basket.
With the referees having to determine
whether or not it was an offensive charg-
ing foul or a defensive blocking foul
(which is one of the







most difficult'
S'. calls in the game of
basketball), the block-
inmg foul was called and
N IcDaniel went to the free
throw line with a chance to
giv e Nladis,-on the lead.
McDaniel made the first
tree throw. but missed the
second attempt. However,
Madison's Brown wrestled the
r ebouind awa\ from a Trojan
/ and put the ball back in, giving
the Cowboys a three-point lead.
Hamilton didn't quit, heading
4 right back down the court. Freshman
Bailey was fouled on a field goal at-
tempt. Bailey made both free throws,
cutting the lead to 63-62.
After a called time-out to set up the
defense, Madison was able to inbound the
ball and Tillman was fouled immediately
with 10 seconds remaining in the game.
Tillman missed the front end of a one and
one free throw situation and Jones for
HCHS grabbed the rebound. As he drib-
bled up court, he received some contact
from the Madison players but no fouls
were called. Coach Murphy was able to get
a timeout with 5.7 seconds remaining and
the Trojans trailing by a point.
After the timeout, the ball got knocked
around and, although there was contact,
the ball went out of bounds off of a Madi-
son player with 1.7 seconds left in the
game.
With the crowd on its feet, the Trojans'


inbound pass was unfortunately intercept-
ed and the Cowboys won a very emotional
game, 63-62.
Both teams played well and fought hard.
HCHS actually out-rebounded the Cow-
boys 45-35 while also having six less
turnovers than the Cowboys (14-20). What
eventually made the difference was shoot-
ing. HCHS ended up shooting 32 percent
from the field while Madison made nine
out of their last 12 attempts in the game
to help lead them to victory.
The loss dropped Hamil-
ton's overall record to
15-6. Hamilton finished
up their regular season district
schedule with a 4-2 record, making them
the #1 seed in February's district tourna-
ment, to be held in Perry. They will take
on Florida High in the first round while
Madison will take on Taylor.
Cooks 20 points and five rebounds.
Jones 15 points and 13 rebounds. Bailey -
10 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked
shots. Jackson seven points and three
steals. Sheppard four points and five as-
sists. Stevens, McClain, and Pollock two-
points each.

NHE students visit Deas farm


Over 50 kindergarten and
first grade students from
North Hamilton Elemen-
tary School invaded the
Deas Brothers Farm recent-
ly and got a first-hand view
of how syrup i- made and
what is used to make it.
They saw cane being
squeezed to get the juice,
and the juice being cooked
down to form the sticky
syrup.
. The children sampled the
home-made syrup as Da-
mon Deas' mother and oth-
er volunteers cooked bis-
cuits and pancakes. They
used the sweet-tasting
sticky substance that was


an important product on
most local farms about 100
years ago on their pan-
cakes.
The kids even experi-
enced an old-fashioned
method of travel the horse
and wagon, just like early
pioneers used to travel
around the county over 100
years ago.
The entire Deas family
was involved in the Farm
Tour. Staff members from
the Florida Farm Bureau
were also on hand, to show
the kids fruits and vegeta-
bles that are grown and
harvested in the state of
Florida.


More crops are grown in
Florida than any other state
in America, except for the
state of California. In all, al-
most 280 different agricul-
tural crops are grown in
Florida.
Damon Deas, who was
recently elected to the
Hamilton County School
Board, strongly feels that
we need to teach our chil-
dren about the importance
of: food production and
those who grow our safe,
affordable and abundant
food supply in America.
The Farm Tour is a part of
the Ag-In-The-Classroom
program.

The late Rev. Charles and
Sister Ruby Martin served
our community faithfully for
many years in their pastorate
at Long Branch Congrega-
tional Methodist Church.
I shared a nice visit with
Dorothy Bryant, longtime
educator, White Springs, on
Monday, in Jasper. Mrs.
Bryant came for the School
Board Workshop on the Stu-
dent Progression Plan. It was
great seeing and sharing a
visit with her. She was my
teacher at South Hamilton
Elementary and later, we
worked side by side in the
classroom at South. Then she
worked as guidance coun-
selor and administrative as-
sistant while I was principal
at South. I talked her into
coming out of retirement to
work as part-time guidance
counselor when I came back
as principal during the sum-
mer of 2003. She is probably
the only person who has
served as teacher, guidance
counselor and principal of
South, and I am the only per-
son, thus far, to serve as prin-
cipal there on two separate
occasions. She and I walked
the halls together many days
at South.

UNIQUgri VET TO BE

HOSTED BY LOCAL


CAR DEALER
Valdosta, Georgia


Valdosta will again
experience a "first" thanks
to a local business. Prince
Automotive in Valdosta
will be hosting a very
unique type of automotive
event called "Write Your,
Own Deal" starting the
Thursday This type of
event is brand new to this
area and is expected to
draw a significant number
of area residents during
it's four day run.
The event functions in a
manner very different
from typical automotive
events. Customers are
actually provided a sales
worksheet on which they
structure their own car
purchase. The worksheet
actually allows the
customer to appraise their
own trade in if they have
one, setting the value and
entering it on the form. the
customer is also asked to
set the price for the vehicle
they are interested in
purchasing on the same
worksheet. After
settingthese two amounts,
the customer is asked to
set the monthly payment
goal, the amount they
would prefer to pay as the
payment on the car they
are interested in
purchasing. Basically the
customer is allowed to set
the price on the vehicle
they want, assign a value
to any vehicle they wish to
trade and set a payment
goal so that financing can


be structured to suit their
budget.
According to used car
manager Mike Yates; "It is
an opportunity that we
had to take advantage of
for our customers.
Allowing them to take
control of all aspects of
the car purchase puts all
the power in their hands
and we couldn't wait to
bring this type of event to
Valdosta. We hope that
everyone in the immediate
area takes the time to
come in during these four
days and see how they like
this new way of buying a
preowned car, truck or suv.
We have over seventy
preowned and one
hundred new vehicles on
the lot and every single
one is approved for the
write your own deal
program."
Although currently
planned as a one time
event for four consecutive
days only, this Thursday
through Monday, Yates did
not rule out a return of the
special program if it's
success warranted it.
Special hours will be
offered for this event and
staff will remain on hand
until the last customer on
the lot has the opportunity
the "Write their own deal".
The Prince Automotive
Group is located at 4550
North Valdosta Road off
Interstate 75 at exit 22 in
Valdosta.

Inn Business

Pension Fund Develops Upscale Hotels Across State


By Phillip Rawls
Associated Press Writer
Forget Hilton or Holiday Inn. With
half a billion dollars in investments,
Alabama's state pension fund has
become the largest hotel developer in
the state, with a string of upscale
destinations that are changing
Alabama's image as much as the Robert
Trent Jones Golf Trail did.
The eight hotels, stretching from the
Tennessee River to Mobile Bay, are next
to or a short drive from the golf trail.
Both were developed by the Retirement
Systems of Alabama for two purposes --
making money and ending Alabama's
image as a place to drive through on the
way to the beach.
"The golf courses give people a fresh
and compelling reason to come to the
state. Then the accommodations seal
the deal as far as the image of our
state," state tourism director Lee
Sentell said.
Retirement Systems CEO David
Bronner, a blunt-talking, cigar-
chomping Minnesota native, took over
Alabama's pension funds for public
employees in 1973.
For years, he made traditional
investments, but in the late 1980s, he
took an unusual path that raised plenty
of eyebrows.
Bronner decided to start building
golf courses and lured famed designer
Robert Trent Jones Sr. by promising to
make them his legacy.
By the time the construction ended
in 2005, there were 432 holes at 10
locations across the state. The courses
started off slow, but soon were drawing
praise from golf magazines throughout
the world. Today, they're a hit, drawing
about 500,000 visitors a year -- most
from outside Alabama,
But Bronner soon saw a problem
with the golf trail's success, particularly
among business executives using it to
entertain clients.
d "A lot of people liked the trail, but we
didn't have first-class housing to bring
in clients," Bronner said.
His answer: Buying historic hotels
and renovating them and building new
ones all on or near the golf courses in
Point Clear, Mobile, Prattville,
Montgomery, Opelika, Birmingham and
Florence.
The high-end hotels "catapult
Alabama to the next level as far as
being a tourism destination," said Liz
Bittner, executive director of the
tourism promotion group Travel South
USA.
The Retirement Systems' hotel arm,
PCH Hotels and Resorts, is currently
operating 1,464 rooms and will add 587
more next year when the restoration of
the historic Battle House Hotel is
complete in Mobile and construction
ends on the new Montgomery
Convention Center Hotel and Spa.
The hotels operate under the
Marriott brand or its more upscale
Renaissance label, and their prices can
approach $300 per night. But finding an
open room at some locations --
particularly the Renaissance Ross
Bridge Golf Resort and Spa in
Birmingham -- can be difficult at times.
"People want first-class facilities,"
Bronner said.
In the capital city of Montgomery,
Bronner has worked with local officials
to build a convention hotel and spa that
is part of a riverfront development
project including an expanded
convention center, a Broadway-style
theater, a minor league ballpark, an
amphitheater, and a riverside park.
"This is the linchpin," Mayor Bobby
Bright said as he stood inside the hotel
scheduled to open in late 2007.

entrance to the stunning Shoals Hotel in Florence, AL.


Sentell, whose office is a few blocks
away, said it's amazing to see the
change along Montgomery's riverfront.
"This will bring a lot of people to
Montgomery who've just driven down I-
65 to the beach," he said.
At the Florence-Lauderdale Tourism
Bureau, executive director Debbie
Wilson said the opening of the Marriott
Shoals Hotel and Spa on the Tennessee
River in 2005 made the northwest
corner of Alabama a destination for
regional conventions for the first time.
"We've never been able to host a
meeting of that size," she said. .
The success is proven by local
lodging tax collections, which were up
52 percent for the first nine months of
the year, she said.
The Retirement Systems' hotels and
a new office tower added to the Battle
House in Mobile represent more than
$500 million in investments.
The Retirement Systems uses other
investments in TV stations and
newspapers across the country to get
several million dollars in free
advertising each year to promote its golf
courses and hotels. It's a freebie other
resort developers can't match.
But not all has gone according to
Bronner's plan.
Hurricane Katrina in August 2005
closed the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort
in Point Clear for a year and delayed
renovation on the Battle House across
the bay in Mobile.
Because of that, the hotels lost $5
million in fiscal 2006 because of the
shutdown of the Grand Hotel and
skyrocketing insurance rates that
followed the hurricane. The pension
fund is forecasting a $5.5 million profit
this year.


Bronner said he never expected a
quick return. "A convention hotel runs
negative for two or three years until you
get in the convention cycle," he said.
Praise, however, has been quick for
Bronner.
"Dr. Bronner is the most significant
developer in Alabama's tourism
industry ever," Sentell said.

joyed our morning and came
away with some great pur-
chases and, more important-
ly, some wonderful memo-
ries.
Lori Gaskins Harding, Tal-
lahassee, one of my former
students, phoned me on
Monday. I taught Lori many
moons ago at South. She was
in the class with Joe Greene,
Amy McGhinn Greene, Polly
Davis Dunaway, and several
others. She is now a mother
of three and a second grade
teacher at Ruebiger Elemen-
tary School. Her mother
Brenda Dyal, lives just across
the street from Lori. It was so
good hearing from Lori after
all these years.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to Andy Cooper,
Jasper. Andy has reached
that half-century mark. We
wish Andy many, many
more happy birthdays. If
God spares me, Andy, I will
be joining you at 50 before
too much longer. I am close
enough to see the light now.
It was so wonderful hav-
ing JM Morgan come back to
his'rightful place in the choir
at First Baptist, White
Springs, this past Sunday. 11
health prevented him from
participating for some time,
but we are all so pleased that
he is much better and. able to
fully participate. May God
continue to bless JM, Martha,

Mickler of Jasper; she has a
brother, Joseph. She enjoyed
a birthday party on Satur-
day, Jan. 20, with nine of her
special friends joining her at
Michaels Arts and Crafts in
Valdosta, Ga., to celebrate.
While at Michaels the girls
enjoyed decorating tote bags
with bows and jewels
(sounds like a special girl
day to me). After the crafts
were completed, the girls
feasted on birthday cake,
decorated with the Fairy-
topic theme, cookies, chips
and juice. Abby enjoyed
opening her many wonder-
ful presents and thanked
everyone for coming and
celebrating this special
event with her. Happy
birthday, Abby!

Medical techniques keep soldiers in battle


By Eric Reinagel
CNHI News Service

You hear the mortars going out, but
you don't know where they'll land. This
could be the last breath of your life.
Marine Lance Cpl. Bret McCauley of
Kokomo, Ind., recalls crouching close to
the ground, moving warily through a Sun-
ni rebel neighborhood in Fallujah just be-
fore dusk.
He'd been in Iraq two weeks, he says,
not enough time to fully absorb the
treacherous uncertainty of the landscape
and yet sufficient time to see the bloody
reality of war.
It is March 26, 2004, .and the sounds of
combat are loud in McCauley's ears as his
infantry unit moves from
house to house. Suddenly, a
rocket-propelled grenade
flies over his right shoul-
der, smashing into the -
building in front of him.
McCauley says he in- -
stinctively dived behind a
cinder block structure
cradling a propane tank and
starts shooting at insurgents j -i
perched on a rooftop.
Before he can find a
safer location, a bullet from .
an AK-47 rips through his
left thigh. Then the gunfire
stops.
"Who's hit?" someone
calls out. "Who's hit?"
McCauley says he re- .
sponds, "Dude, I'm hit!"
Blood drips from a
jagged hole in his camou-
flage pants. He tries to get '-.'
up but his left leg buckles. -
A corpsman tells him to Eric Reinagel
stay down on the ground, a reporter with
and administers a shot of
morphine.
McCauley says he is picked up and
moved to a Humvee. The limp body of.-a
fellow Marine who had bummed a ciga-
rette only an hour earlier rests next to
him. The Marine is dead, shot in the face,


"Primary medical train

during Vietnam was w

we called sticks and .

says McCauley, and "his blood covers
me."
They know where we are. This is where
I'll die. Not in this place. Not in this
stinking place.
But the 23-year-old McCauley won't

PATH TO RECOVERY
On Sept. 6, 2004, Lance Cpl. Bret McCauley was
severely injured by a car bomb that killed seven
Marines in Fallujah, Iraq. Three days and more than
6,000 air miles later, he awoke from a coma at
Bethesda Naval Hospital in Washington, D.C.


him to the main combat
hospital in Baghdad for
air transfer to the region-
al military hospital in
Landstuhl, Germany, and
more medical attention -
if that's what he wants.
He will then return home
to the United States
within a day or two.
Or he can stay and re-
join his 1st Marine Divi-
sion infantry unit in Fallujah when he's
feeling up to it. The choice is his. He will
get a Purple Heart either way.
McCauley, who enlisted in the Marine
Corps before graduating Kokomo's Taylor
High School in 2001, elects to remain in


Sam Houston, Texas, says
the military is returning
more woirnded soldiers to
combat and saving more
lives because of improved
medical knowledge and
faster response.
There are, he said, three
primary causes for death
in the first 10 minutes of a
battlefield injury: bleed-
ing, obstructed airways
and collapsed lungs. He said the military
teaches trauma skills to first responders so
they can treat these conditions rapidly and
effectively.
Combat medical packs, for example,
contain special tourniquets and emergency

the war zone. Marines are trained to be
tough, he says, and you do your job just
as long as you are able to do it.
McCauley thus becomes one of the
10,600-plus American soldiers in Iraq
who have suffered injuries and yet were
able to return to combat
since the U.S. invasion in
fning March of 2003.
6 "I just got here," he re-
Mhat calls saying. "I watched
my friend get killed. I'm
rags." not going to go home. I'm
out for blood."
His next encounter with
the wounds of war will not be so fortu-
nate. But McCauley says the swift, expert
medical treatment he received for the bul-
let through his thigh was an example of'
the military's new techniques for treating
battlefield injuries.
There's nothing to do but lay in bed, lis-

That's in addition to mor-
phine, oxygen, IV lines and
high-tech digital instruments
that measure heart rate,
blood pressure, respiration
and other telltale signs of
life or death. Some medics
even carry portable heart-

oxygen..
"Simple little things," said
Maj. Gen. George W.
Weightman, a medical doc-
tor and the center's comman-
der. "But they address 90
percent of all the reasons
people die in those first 10


minutes."
Lifesaving statistics tell the story. Med-
ical improvements have reduced to less
than 10 percent the number of wounded
American troops in Iraq who do not sur-
vive, according to the Pentagon.
That's the best survival rate of any U.S.
war. In the Gulf War, 22 percent of in-
jured U.S. soldiers died. The rate was 24
percent in the Vietnam War, and 30 per-
cent during the Korean War and World
War II.
Weightman, Cahill and others credit ad-
vances in combat casualty care to superior
medical research, technology and training
by the military. These factors, they said.
have led to corpsmen, medics, nurses,
doctors and the soldiers themselves pro-
viding critical medical as-

battlefield.
Iraq's compact geogra-
phy and flat landscape
also help. Rapid-response

gically located combat
hospitals in less than an

TESTS THAT CAN HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE


DISEASED CAROTID-ARTERY "

*- ,


I-


Jasper community helps promote health and wellness


Residents living in and
around the Jasper community
can be screened to reduce
their risk of having a stroke.
Life Line Screening will be at
the Woman's Club of Jasper,
403 NW 6th Ave., Jasper on
Wednesday, Jan. 31. Appoint-
ments will begin at 9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack," is ranked as
the third leading killer in the
world, and the second among
women. Through preventive


screenings, the risk of having
a stroke can be greatly re-.
duced.
Screenings are fast, pain-
less and low cost. They in-
volve the use of ultrasound
technology, and scan for po-
tential health problems relat-
ed to: blocked arteries which
can lead to a stroke, aortic
aneurysms which can lead to
a ruptured aorta, and harden-
ing of the arteries in the legs,
which are a strong predictor


of heart disease. Also offered
for men and women, is a
bone density screening to as-
sess their risk for osteoporo-
sis.
"It saved my husband from
having a major stroke."
,William and Harriett West,
Zephyrhills. ,
All four screenings take
less than an hour to complete.
A complete vascular screen-
ing package, including the
Stroke/Carotid Artery, Ab-
dominal Aortic
Aneurysm and Ankle
Brachial Index (harden-
ing of the arteries)
screenings is $ 109.
Sign-up for a complete
vascular package; in-
clude the osteoporosis'
screening and pay only
$129.
Life Line Screening
was established in 1993,
and has since become,
the nation's leading
provider of vascular
screenings. Over 85 ul-
trasound teams are on


staff to travel to your local
community, bringing the
screenings to you. These non-
invasive, inexpensive and
painless, ultrasound tests help
people identify their risk for
stroke, vascular diseases or
osteoporosis early enough for
their physician to begin pre-
ventive procedures.
For more information re-
garding the screenings or to
schedule an appointment, call

Doctor-patient communication vital to


dealing with rheumatoid arthritis


Nearly 70 percent of people being treated for rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, still experience
pain, stiffness or fatigue on a daily basis. Many patients don't realize that better
communication with their rheumatologist could lead to improved care. Studies have shown
that earlier management of RA can limit joint damage, which can limit loss of movement.
"Talking to your doctor and effectively communicating how RA affects your life are keys
to improving the management of your disease," said Dr. John H. Klippel, CEO of the
Arthritis Foundation. "Patients need to recognize that the rheumatologist has the very same
goal as they do to understand how RA affects their life and to develop a plan to manage
their disease."
RA is a serious form of arthritis that impacts more than two million people in the United
States alone. Chronic inflammation in the lining of joints can lead to decreased range of
motion, and permanent joint damage.
The Arthritis Foundation suggests RA patients do some homework before visiting their
doctor by "Taking P.A.R.T.":
PREPARE: You should keep a journal of symptoms and compile a list of questions for
your doctor. List all of your medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter
remedies, and even herbal supplements.
ASK QUESTIONS: You should ask questions whenever something doesn't seem clear.
This will help to ensure you understand what's going on and how to best manage your
condition. Keep it simple, specific and direct.
REPEAT: Take notes and repeat the instructions and information you receive from your
doctor to make sure you heard and understand it. Ask for written handouts and instructions.
TAKE ACTION: Be part of the solution. Let your doctor know about your lifestyle,
concerns, and preferences so a treatment plan can be customized to your specific needs.
This fall, the Arthritis Foundation launched a yearlong national campaign called "Let's
Talk RA" to educate RA patients on how to effectively communicate with their
rheumatologists and to highlight how important a doctor-patient relationship is to improving
patient care. Bristol-Myers Squibb has sponsored the Arthritis Foundation campaign.
A free Let's Talk RA communication guide that can help RA patients take a more active
role in their care is now available on the Arthritis Foundation Web site, www.arthritis.org, or
by calling 1-800-568-4045.

Wounds

bed in the United States, a speed unheard
of in previous wars.
"Primary medical training during Viet-
nam was what we called sticks and rags,"
said Cahill. "You put on a bandage or an
IV. It wasn't any advance trauma. The
training we give now is more directed at
trauma."
Like a mosquito or fly that won't go
away, mortars fall again. Somewhere they
are being launched. Somewhere they fall
to earth in a violent collision.
Lance Cpl. McCauley is back with the
1st Marine Expeditionary Force in Fallu-
jah in May of 2004, five weeks after he
was shot by a Sunni sniper.
"I picked infantry because that's what
my idea of a Marine was," he says. "You
know, with a rifle, sleeping in the mud."
Only Marines in this war sleep on
bunks in the desert and wear body armor
to shield their abdomen and upper chest,
and Kevlar helmets to protect against
head injuries. Arms, legs, armpits and
neck are about all that's exposed. That's
why the number of amputees in Iraq is
twice that of previous wars.
It is now Sept. 6, 2004, and McCauley
is assigned to a patrol in the heart of an
insurgency stronghold just north of Fallu-
jah. He mentally counts the days he has
left in Iraq "one month to go" before
jumping into the open bed of a supply
truck.


Then, he recalls, out of nowhere a car
loaded with explosives slams into the
convoy, blowing him like a rag doll
through the air. The car contained a 500-
pound bomb, 250-mm artillery shells and
makeshift shrapnel.
That's the last thing McCauley says he
remembers until awaking from a coma
two weeks later in Bethesda Naval Hospi-
tal back in the United States.
He is told that extraordinary medical
care saved his life in an attack that killed
seven fellow Marines and three members
of the Iraqi National Guard. McCauley is
one of four Marines who survived the at-
tack. He also learns that a Navy corpsman
found him unconscious, blood flowing
from his mouth, ears and nose. The corps-
man inserted a tube through McCauley's
nostril to prevent blockage of his airway,
and placed a tourniquet under McCauley's
left armpit to stop the bleeding.
Within minutes, McCauley says, he's
stabilized at a combat field hospital and
transferred to the Army's main medical
facility in Baghdad, where surgeons re-
move his spleen and a kidney. He's then
sent to the regional hospital in Germany
for recovery from the operation,, and a
few days later, airlifted to Bethesda for
treatment of these other injuries:
Bruised liver and pancreas.
Ruptured corneas in both eyes from
heat and pressure.
Deep lacerations in his right arm, but-
tocks and neck from shrapnel.


Nearly severed left arm.
Ruptured left ear drum; pinhole in
right ear drum.
Second-degree bums on most of his
face and right arm.
Tumor-like blood clot on his head that
resembles a basketball.
Chipped teeth.
McCauley says he never expected to
find himself among the critically wound-
ed and dependent on modern military
medicine to keep him alive when he vol-
unteered for deployment to Iraq in Janu-
ary of 2004.
He says he willingly gave up his as-
signment as a Marine security guard at
Camp David, the presidential retreat in
the Maryland woods outside Washington,
for the adventure of combat duty in one
of the most dangerous places in the
world.
Yet he doesn't regret his decision then
or now. Marines, he says, are taught to
sacrifice and to show courage and com-
mitment.
"Everybody wants the experience (of
war)," McCauley says. "I wanted to be
the best."

war's psychological scars.

Dear Classified Guys,
I slap mud onto walls for a living, not
real mud, but joint compound. I'm
one of those guys that finish drywall.
Yes it's messy, but the work is pretty
steady considering I work independ-
ently. Most of my clients are home-
owners who see my ad in the
classified and then want me to help
finish a room they started or hang
drywall in the addition they're build-
ing. The problem is that just about
every homeowner I meet complains
about money, their mortgage, the
cost of living, and oh yeah, my rate!
I'm priced less than all of my com-
petitors, but my clients still want me
to cut my price so they can save a
few bucks.To be honest, I'm not very
good at fielding complaints so I usu-
ally give them a break, even
though they live in a nicer
house than mine. Any
suggestions on how I .
should be handling these
customers?
Cash: No matter how much money
you have, it never seems lik1 1.'noudth.
And sadly. many homeowners tend to
overextend themselves. Although some
of your customers may simply be trying
to get the best price they can.
Carry: I can't blame them. I'm

always looking for the best deal as well.
Cash: Since you have your own busi-
ness, it's very important that you brush
up on your negotiating skills. After all,
your time and services do have a signifi-
cant value.
Carry: Without your help, the home-
owners would most likely be sitting in a
new addition of studs and insulation, not
quite the homey affect they would be
hoping for.
Cash: It seems like you already have
some good knowledge of your market
and competitors' pricing. Now you just
need to work on interacting with your
customers.
Carry: First, realize that if your


clients made the decision to add on to
their home or redo a few rooms, then
they already decided to spend the money
to do so. Your rate is simply a part of the
project costs.
Cash: It's considerate to lend a sym-
pathetic ear, but don't let it impact your
pricing. Point out the positives of your
work and let them know that they
received a great price. A professional
approach is always best.
Carry: Another option that may help
you in your business is to expand your
advertising. When you have more cus-
tomers looking to hire your services,
you can choose the jobs that fit your.
schedule and have the best value.


Drywall
Before World War II the interior walls.
of most houses were finished using a
process called lath and plaster. Not only
was the method a lot of work, but it often
took weeks to apply, longer if the weath-
er was damp. Although a type of drywall
was developed in 1916 by the United
States Gypsum Company, it didn't catch
on until the government needed a faster
and cheaper method to build military
structures. Today, drywall is the standard
in the home construction industry with
the average new home using over 7.3
metric tons.

Savings Education
If you feel like you're living paycheck
to paycheck, you're not alone. According
to some surveys, more than 50% of peo-
ple don't save their money. A recent test
given to 1000 individuals by the The
Consumer Literacy Consortium 'found
that most people have poor knowledge
when it comes to saving money and con-
sumer purchasing. In fact, the average
score was 53%. Only 38% were able to
choose the best life insurance policy and
a mere 9% knew how to find the best
price on funerals. Fortunately, about
75% understood that missing a credit
card payment could increase your annual
interest rate: .

Fast Food
As a real estate broker, I've learned
to size people up quickly. One couple
I met were complete opposites. The
husband was simply worried about.
the'price, while his wife was interest-
ed in finding the perfect home.
I took them to a few houses in their
price range, but each time the wife
complained that the homes were too
small.and the husband complained
that they were too expensive. Finally,
I brought them to a house that was
outside their price range to see what
they thought.
The wife immediately commented,
"I love it! Let's go see the kitchen."
"Why bother,",her husband com-
plained. "With the mortgage payment
on this place, there's no way we could
afford food."

Calcium the organic way


Old Fashioned mac and cheese


N CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA


(Family Features) Growing bodies
need calcium. Kids love macaroni and
cheese. See an equation here? It's is easy
to make this family pleasing entree with
organic ingredients. Plus, it features a
whopping dose of that bone building,
miraculous mineral: calcium.
"Little kids need about 500 mg (of
calcium) per day, bigger ones about 800
mg and teens need 1,300 mg to fuel
those growing bones," said Sara
Tedeschi, Organic Valley's community
nutrition educator. "There's no better
way to get calcium than from organic
dairy foods."
Milk drinkers will get 300 mg of
calcium for every cup. Not all kids are
milk drinkers, but most love cheese and
other dairy foods. Nurturing the strong
bones that are formed during the
growing years will help prevent
osteoporosis later in life. And, adults -
especially women need 1,000 mg of
calcium per day. ,
Macaroni and cheese come together
for a calcium-rich entr6e that pleases
the palate, the soul and the kid in all of
us.
Getting Calcium into Kids
Cheese, Please: A 1.5-ounce serving of
cheddar cheese has 300 mg of calcium.
Offer a snack of cheddar cubes or try
Organic Valley Stringles.
Juicy News: 1 cup of Organic Valley
Organic "With Calcium" Orange Juice
contains 300 mg of calcium.
Yummy Yogurt: An 8-ounce serving
of yogurt contains 300 mg of calcium.
Green Goddess: Dark green
vegetables like broccoli contain calcium.
Serve broccoli "trees" with a tangy dip
made with Organic Valley Lowfat Sour
Cream or Cottage Cheese.
Soup It Up: Make soups with milk for
a calcium boost.
Jump for Joy: Combine a calcium-rich


Enjoy the Fun All Year Long
