Alex Brown is on his way to the Super ,Bowl


After 21 years, the Chicago Bears are returning to the Super
Bowl and taking defensive end Alex Brown of White Springs
with them.
Alex, the son of James and Essie Brown, has dreamed of being
an NFL player since he was a child. That dream was fulfilled in
2002 when the Bears drafted him as a fourth round selection.
On Sunday, Alex and his teammates will face the Indianapolis
Colts in the ultimate game of the season at Dolphins Stadium in
Miami.
Essie Brown said she never expected her son to become a fa-
mous football player.
"I am excited for him but to me, he's just my son, Alex, not a
football superstar," she said.
The Browns lived in White Springs while Alex was a child. He
went to school at South Hamilton Elementary and graduated from
Hamilton County High School (HCHS).
Alex and his four brothers were active in sports. After Essie
worked all day, she took the boys to practice and games.
When Alex was about five years old, he began playing flag foot-
ball. His parents have followed his football career ever since as a
Trojan, a Gator and now as a Bear. They have attended several
NFL games and will be in Miami on Sunday to support Alex and
his team.
Alex and his brothers had to earn good grades in school too, Essie Alex Brown


said.
"Sports are no good, if you don't have good grades too," Essie
added.
One time when Alex made a D in Spanish, his parents would not
let him play in a basketball game against Live Oak. (The Trojans
lost.) Alex learned a lesson and learned to speak Spanish. He
passed the class, and being able to speak Spanish probably comes
in handy sometimes now, because his wife, Karimar, is from Puerto
Rico.
While playing for the Trojans, Alex was selected as a district
MVP on both defense and offense. He was a first-team All-State
(3A) selection and a Florida's Super Seniors Team selection. .
PrepStar named Alex to the All-America Dream Team and '
ranked him among the nation's top five linebackers. He received
All-America honors from National Recruiting Advisor, which
ranked him among the country's top three weakside linebackers.
Alex was also selected as the district MVP in basketball and he
was the 1996 state 3A champion in the discuss while he was in higl
school.
Alex began playing for the Univ\ersity of Florida Gators in 1997,'!
where he earned numerous awards and honors. He was selected
several times as a semi-finalist or a finalist for the Lombardi Award
and the

What people are saying


about Alex Brown
This is amazing that we have someone from our
area representing us in the Super Bowl.
Harold Lumpkin, Veterans
Administration Representative

He's gonna win the championship.
Ed Mannheim,
PCS Phosphate employee

Although I didn't coach Alex, I could see his talent.
He always worked hard and believed that he would
be an NTL player. Alex is a phenomenal young man
Jeff Burnam, Principal,
North Hamilton Elementary

We are extremely proud of Alex this is quite an ac-
complishment.
Lana Wisenbaker

Alex was probably the most competitive young man
that I ever coached. He always gave his best and he al-
ways wanted to win. Even the games where his play
was outstanding and the team did not win he would
not find any satisfaction. I always knew what to ex-
pect out of Alex on the court and used him as an ex-
ample for other players.
It does not surprise me that he has reached this lev-
el in his career. I was very fortunate to have coached
many great athletes and people in my career. It is dif-
ficult to rate players over a period of time. However,
Alex would definitely be at the top of the list for being
a hard worker and a person driven to succeed.
Rex Mitchell, Assistant Superintendent,
Teaching and Learning Services,
Hamilton School District

Alex was always the most respectful and best man-
nered young man. He was never too busy for children
during his Gator career. I am very proud of Alex and
proud to have known him during his high school and
college career. I wish him the best, and remember:
Peyton Manning never beat Alex and UF in four years
during college. Go, Gators and Bears.
County Judge Sonny Scaff


the boys pull out their fa-
vorite player's cleats,"
HCHS Head Football Coach
Corey Green said. "They are
thrilled to be able to say that
they are wearing something
that belonged to an NFL
player."
"A lot of athletes who
make it big forget about
their high school. Alex defi-
nitely hasn't," Coach Green
continued. "All the things he
has done for the high school
are greatly appreciated."
Coach Green has asked
Alex to be the guest speaker
at the football banquet. The
date and the time of the ban-
quet will be announced later.
Alex hasn't forgotten his
family either. He bought 40.
acres in Bellville and had a
house built for his parents so
they could live near her fam-
ily. Alex, Karimar and their
son, Antonio, frequently vis-
it them.
A group of fans in Jen-
nings, near Bellville, is plan-
ning to buy a banner in
recognition of Alex's contri-
butions to the community
and his achievements in his
football career. Lana Wisen-
baker, spokesperson for the
group, plans to ask the
County Commissioners for
permission to hang the ban-
ner across CR 143. She will
also ask the County to desig-
nate a day after the Super
Bowl as Alex Brown Day.
For more information call
938-5549.
D&S Signs is accepting or-
ders for jerseys with Alex's
number on them. Sizes small
to extra-large are $9.50; sizes
2-X and 3-X are 10.50. The
jerseys must be ordered by 3
p.m. today (Feb. 1) to be
available for pick-up before
the Super Bowl; If the Bears
win the game, the jerseys
can be returned and have
"Super Bowl Champ" added
to them. Jerseys can also be
ordered after the Super
Bowl., Call 792-1354 to order
jerseys. ,

TII Y FR R 1 2007 THE JASPER NEI ,1peFLPGI


I was working at town
hall today, Tuesday the
23rd of January when
we received a call from
Mr. Lawrence Udell. Mr.
Udell called to inform us that
he had observed snow flakes
falling in his yard on Second
Street. Well, we just had to
see for ourselves, so Shirley,
Pam and I ran out the back
door and looked skyward.
Shirley noticed that the
clouds looked like snow
clouds and it was certainly
the right temperature. In a
few minutes we also ob-
served a few flakes drifting
on the breeze, and were con-
vinced that Mr. Lawrence
was not seeing things. Thank
you, Mr. Udell, for thinking
of us and sharing your
miraculous sighting.
Items considered at the
Town Council meeting on
Tuesday, Jan. 16 included:
the agreement for solid
waste pick up with Waste
Pro. The agreement termi-
nates on April 14, and over
the next few months the
town will need to negotiate a
new agreement. As allowed
by the original agreement,
Waste Pro submitted their
proposed agreement with
the rate increases over the
next five years. After Council
review of the proposed
agreement the Town Council
set a public work shop to be'
held on Feb. 13, 6:30 p.m., at
Town Hall. Copies of the
proposed agreement be-
tween the town and Waste
Pro. are available at town hall
for public inspection.
The 2007 Community
Block Development Grant
application was discussed
and the Council will consid-
er projects at the Feb. 20, reg-
ular meeting. The CDBG ap-
plication deadline is in April.
Watch your local bulletin
boards for the advertisement
of the meetings.
The Town Council also
honored Vice Mayor Mr.
Ralph Hardwick for his re-
cent nomination to the Board
of Directors of the Suwannee
River League of Cities. Con-
gratulations to Vice Mayor


Hardwick on this prestigious
nomination; we are sure that
he will represent our com-
munity as well as all com-
munities in the Suwannee
River League of Cities Dis-
trict with distinction and
honor.
On a lighter note, if you
have noticed the blue reflec-
tors placed in the center line
of the streets of White
Springs, they were placed
there by the White Springs
Volunteer Fire Department.
The blue reflectors are a pro-
ject initiated by Fire Chief
Steve Stith and they are iden-
tifiers for fire hydrants. If
you find a blue reflector in
the street, look for a fire hy-
drant in near proximity. The
reflectors are a universal sign
that a fire hydrant is nearby,
and are designed to help as-
sisting agencies in locating
the town's fire hydrants.
A while back as I reviewed
the town code on Tree Regu-
lations I noticed the dassifi-
cation of Heritage Trees and
Champion Trees. I contacted
the local Forestry Depart-
ment and spoke with Hamil-
ton County Forester Mr. Tim
Wilkinson. Forester ,Wilkin-
son informed me that Cham-
pion Trees are considered
the largest of their species
and the only State Champion
Tree in White Springs was a
Catalpa tree, (Catalpa
Bignonioides) located just off
Hamilton Avenue at Bridge
Street on private property.
Forester Wilkinson further
explained that about ten
years ago he had registered
the Catalpa tree with the
State as a Champion tree,
and that in October of 2005
he had re-measured the cir-
cumference, height and
crown spread of our local
Catalpa.
What inspired this story is
that about a week ago an
artist from afar visited town
hall and inquired about the
location of the only State
Champion Catalpa tree lo-
cated in White Springs in or-
der to capture it on canvas.

vided by Forester Tim

BY ROBERT TOWNSEND
WHITE SPRINGS
TOWN MANAGER


Wilkinson I was able to assist
the artist, and did request a
first chance at purchasing the
painting for the town.
And while I am on the
subject of the town code I
would like to express thanks
to Mrs. Linda Williams who
recently removed a dilapi-
dated structure from her
property located on Railroad
Avenue. Mrs. Williams then
cleaned the lot and moved
on a beautiful home for her
daughter Tara. Mrs.
Williams' efforts are a won-
derful improvement to her
neighborhood and I hope an
inspiration to us all.
If you enter town on Sun
Rise Drive you will notice
the new home of Potter's
House International Min-
istries of North Florida Inc.
just off US 41. Congratula-
tions to Pastor Dale Croft
and the congregation on
their new home and the
wonderful improvements
being made to the property.
My hope is that as the town
moves forward enforcing the
code that all citizens will
work together with the town
to improve our community.
I am sure that everyone in
town has observed the flocks
of hundreds of buzzards that
seem to circle about in the
twilight and roost on the old
water tower, in trees and on
TV antennas. Well, we have
learned from the University
of Florida (UF) that buzzards
are migratory birds and they
return every year to roost in
familiar places. Unfortunate-
ly, lately it has been White
Springs. With the assistance
of UF the town has pur-
chased pyrotechnic devices
to frighten the buzzards,
away and has implemented
a program where Mr. An-
drew Greene ever so careful-
ly goes out at twilight and
fires the devices into the air
in close proximity of the
roosting area. We affection-
ately refer to this as the "buz-

not real but a fake designed

away.
Mr. Jerry Lawrence
Bullard stopped by town hall
this week and dropped off
seedling trees donated by
Hamilton County Soil and
Water Conservation Pro-
gram. The variety of trees in-
clude Dog Wood, Cedar,
Red Bud, White Oak and
Chick-pea. There are twelve
to twenty-four inch
seedlings ready for planting.
The "free" trees are available
at Town Hall; just stop by
and pick them up. If you are
unable to come by please call
and we will try to assist you.
And in dosing, sometimes
in our busy schedule we
don't always say thank you
as we should. So I would like
to thank the Town Council,
Hamilton County Board of
County Commissioners, our
District Commissioner Mr.
Randy Ogbum, County Co-
ordinator Mr. Bob Poor, and
previous County Coordina-
tor Mr. Mike Williams for
working with me over the
last four years to assist the
town in paving Suwannee
Street and improving Jack-
son Street. It was the cooper-
ative effort between us all
that accomplished these pro-
jects using Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
funding. These type of pro-
jects don't just happen; it
takes good cooperation be-
tween local governments
and an understanding that
we must work together to ac-
complish good things for our
communities. Thank you all
for your efforts, cooperation
and dedication.

Groundhog Day Friday, Feb. 2

Groundhogs belong to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots.
While most marmots live in the mountains, groundhogs, also known as wood
chucks, are actually lowland creatures. Known for its cute and cuddly appearance,
the groundhog is actually quite strong. Exceptional burrowers, groundhogs are
said to move 700 pounds of dirt when digging a burrow.
Each year, in both the United States and Canada, Groundhog Day is celebrated.
Traditionally the day serves to determine how long winter will last. If the ground-
hog sees his shadow, that means there will be six more weeks of winter. If not, that
means winter will end shortly.
Different regions of the country boast different local prognosticating ground-
hogs, the most notable of which is Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil.
While the earliest American reference to Groundhog Day dates back to the mid-
nineteenth century, the holiday actually, extends back centuries into German and
French folklore.

17-6


Boys' varsity basketball team

to play in district tournament


Flip flops may not be
desirable attire for school,
but this kind of flip-flop is
more than welcome.
Last year was Patrick
Murphy's first year as head
coach of the boys' varsity
basketball team. When he
was hired he had to set his
own schedule for the 2005-
2006 season. By then a lot
of smaller, more local
schools had no room on
their schedule, so the Tro-"
jans had to play a lot of big
schools.
The tough schedule, a
new coach, and only two
experienced players on the
team made last year's sea-
son into a true building
year.
"A lot of people didn't
understand why I played
so many people last year,"
said Coach Murphy, "but
with my young team I had
to get them some experi-
ence for their next year."
The highlight of last
year was beating Taylor
County, who was ranked
fifth in the state. The team
lost the first game in the


district tournament and
ended the season with a
record of 6-17.
Over the summer most
of the players played ball
on a summer league or an
AAU team. They had
workouts two days a week
at the old middle school
and attended camp at the
University of Florida.
"I knew we were in for a
great year this year when I
saw how good they (the
players on the team)
played at the UF camp,"
said Coach Murphy.
Try-outs for this year
were tough. At least 30
guys tried out for varsity,
but only twelve players
were selected for the team.
"We have such a great
group of guys. Our team's
average cumulative grade-
point-average is higher
than a 3.0 and they stay out
of trouble," stated Coach
Murphy. "And they like to
just hang out together."
The players' good
grades aren't the only ac-
complishment for this sea-
son. Other highlights in-


clude beating eighth
ranked Florida State High
at home, players Josh Jones
and Vincent Bailey being
named the Gainesville
Sun's Players of the Week,
and, of course, a winning
record for the regular sea-
son.
The Trojans are first
seed going into the district
tournament. They defeated
Suwannee for the third
time this year on Saturday,
making their season record
17-6.
"I am really proud of
my team and their efforts
this year," said Coach Mur-
phy. "It's a great blessing
to get to work with such a
great group of student ath-
letes."
It isn't over yet. The Tro-
jans have two more regular
season games Friday
night at home against
Lafayette County (Mayo)
and Saturday night at
Union County. The district
Tournament starts Tues-
day, Feb. 6, at Taylor Coun-
ty, where the Trojans will
play Florida State High.

White Springs









ZA By Johnny Bullard


Well, folks, "Old Man
Winter" is still here with us
for a while at least. We've
had some weather that
would, as my Daddy used
to say "Make you hunt
that coat you put up last
year." Despite the cold
snaps, they are mild com-
pared to other parts of our
nation.
We don't have endure
months of cold weather -
by the middle of March,
most of ours will be gone.
Wrap up, stay warm, make
yourself a hot drink, check
out a good book from the
library and enjoy these cold
days as best you can.
White Springs welcomes
Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin
Faure and family. Ben is
the new park manager for
Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park, Big
Shoals, and Olustee. The
Faure children are enrolled
at South Hamilton Elemen-
tary in White Springs. Ben
is a fifth grader and Eliza-
beth is in third grade. We
are very happy to have
them join us "way down
upon the Suwannee River."
Speaking of the Stephen
Foster, don't forget that the
First Saturday Coffeehouse
Concert will be held in the
Park Service Auditorium
on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 7
p.m. Mary Cox, local folk
musician, will serve as em-
cee. Larry and Pat Cromer,
our longtime Museum
Guide at Stephen Foster, do
a wonderful job coordinat-
ing the Coffee House.
I shared a short visit with
Tom and Mandy Moore on
Sunday. They were walk-
ing from their house to
church services at White
Springs United Methodist
Church. They have been
part-time White Springs
residents, but are now with
us full-time. Tom recently
retired from the medical
field down in Miami, and
they are residing in the res-
idence formerly occupied
by the late JW and Ruby
Shaw. I was pleased to
share a visit with them.
The Town of White
Springs is to be commend-
ed for pursuing grant funds
that completely refurbished
and restored the Roadside/
Riverside Park on the
Hamilton County Side. The
park looks great and is a
wonderful asset. Thank
you to everyone. We appre-
ciate you.
The other morning, I saw

several of our county 'Road
Maintenance employees
traveling south on SR 6. As
citizens, if we call on coun-
ty government or make a
comment, it is usually to
complain, but I want our
Clerk of the Court, County
Commissioners, and the
members of our county
"Road Crew" to know how
very much many of us ap-
preciate the good work
done in our county. It is hu-
man nature to express com-
plaints, but we have far
more accolades than com-
plaints. Again, thank you.
I will watch this week-
end's Super Bowl with spe-
cial interest, as one of my
former students, Alex
Brown, will be playing on
the .Chicago Bears Team.
We are all very proud of
Alex and his accomplish-
ments. We wish him all the
best in the Super Bowl!!!
Alex attended South and
graduated from Hamilton
County High School. He
later played at the Univer-
sity of Florida before going
on to play professional
football in Chicago. He is
the son of James and Essie
Brown.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to Gloria Hunter,
who celebrated her birth-
day on Jan. 31. We wish her
many more happy birth-
days.
My brother, Jerry
Lawrence, and I had quite a
lengthy conversation on
Sunday about the late Fred
P. Cone, who was governor
of the State of Florida from
1937-1941, and is buried at
Prospect Primitive Baptist
Cemetery in White Springs.
If one visits Prospect, one
will find that the original
Cone to live in this part of
Florida, William Cone, is
buried there. He was born
in 1777 and died in 1854, if
my memory serves me cor-
rectly. He fought in Flori-
da's Indian Wars, when the
Seminoles were swept from
the Suwannee River Valley
southward to Payne's
Prairie below Gainesville
and then to the Everglades.
In fact, the late Dr. Daniel
Newnan Cone, White
Springs, was named after
one of Florida's most fa-
mous Indian Fighters,
Colonel Dan Newnan..
Gainesville at one time,
was name "Newnansville"
before its name was
changed, and there is still a
Newnan's Lake near there.

Welcome back, everyone:
students, teachers, staff,
and fellow readers from the
Christmas holidays. I hope
all had a wonderful year in
2006 and an even better
welcoming in the new year
of 2007. This week's topics
are the HCHS Spelling Bee;
an introduction of the new
band director; and the
Artie the Aardvark mys-
tery.
The Hamilton County
High School Spelling Bee
took place on Jan. 18.
Judges were Sylvia Hous-
ton, Ann Hinton, and Ellen
Deas. The hostess for this
event was the school Media
Specialist, Suzette Wiggins,
and the word caller was
Nurse Tracie Cox. Mrs. Cox
is a great speller and com-
peted in her school and dis-
trict bee, along with the re-
gional and National Scripts
Spelling Bee in Washington
DC, her eighth grade year
in school.
The participants walked
in at 10 a.m: seventh
graders Jeread Bass,
Mikayla Byrd, Zach Deas,'
Michaela Mitchell, Jeda
Padgett and Jeffrey Stor-
mant; eighth graders -
Jared Altmix, Rosa Buonvi-
no, Michael Cox, Jessica
Deas, Sha'Kwanda Dye,
Cameron Hawkins, Tucker
Patrick, Shelby Wills and
Joel Zamora.
As the competition began


you could sense the ner-
vousness as the students
started to fiddle with ob-
jects. It was a fast tourna-
ment considering most stu-
dents started to be disqual-
ified after the second
round. Well, they all did a
great job battling it out but
the real war began when it
was down to three com-
petitors. They went on and
on, until there were two,
and along with two came a
misspelled word.
The players and. their
winning and losing words
were: Champion Tucker
Patrick (electioneer), Run-
ner-up Jared Altmix (ten-
dency), second Runner-Up
- Shelby Wills (immersed).
The alternate Jeda Padgett
who missed covenant will
replace any finalist who
can't fulfill their duties in
the District Spelling Bee.
All spelling bee finalists
will compete in the District
Spelling Bee on Tuesday,
Feb. 6, at HCHS's Media
Center along with other.
competitors from CHE,
SHE, and NHE.
The Hamilton County
High School finally has a
band director Dennis Wil-
son. Mr. Wilson is a talent-
ed, well-educated, profes-
sional musician. He has di-
rected many bands and has
passion for the art. Mr. Wil-
son is an excellent teacher
considering he teaches me
in one of his three classes.

putting the band together,
and has high expectations
for his band members and
students by the end of the
school year and even high-
er expectations for them
both in the fall of 2007.
Some of you may know
of this, but if you don't I am
going to tell you the admin-
istration played a hoax on
HCHS students. One day
Mr. Starr announced the
middle school would be re-
ceiving its own mascot, an
Aardvark named Artie.
Artie supposedly went
missing and there was a big
thing on his abduction,
which was actually pretty
funny. Some of the stu-
dents did some investigat-
ing with a staff member
with the material given,
and kind of figured it was
all a joke long before itwas
revealed.
Pam Lake of FDLRS,
wrote a skit about Artie,
and Mr. Starr and HCHS
staff members, in conjunc-
tion with Ms. Lake, pre-
sented a program about
Artie, on Thursday, Jan. 18,
in the Auditorium. Some of
you who attended proba-
bly know that the program
turned out to be a skit per-
formed by members of
HCHS staff on "reading
strategies." The whole 'ex-
perience was kind of fun-
ny, although students did-
n't like the idea of changing
the mascot. I think we all
can look back on the whole
experience and laugh.
That's all for this week's
column and I'm glad the
Trojan News is back. I hope
all the readers enjoyed and
I wish you a great weekend
and year. This is Jonathan
Banks and until next time,
go Trojans!

Militar-N procedure calls for treating Post Traumatic


Surgeons at Bethesda Naval Hos-
-pital prepared to drill a hole in Lance
Cpl. Bret McCauley's badly swollen
head to relieve pressure on his brain
,when he unexpectedly awoke from a
-two-week coma.
"Hold up one finger for me," Mc-
,Cauley recalls someone saying.
He held up his middle finger ''and
.from that instant they knew I would be
,OK."
OK in the sense that he would sur-
vive severe wounds suffered when a suicide
:car bomber rammed his military convoy ou t-
-side Fallujah, Iraq, on Sept. 6, 2004, setting
Qoff 500 pounds of explosives and killing se\-
en fellow Marines.
But not all right when the trauma of tha:
ttragedy and other war scenes kept flashing
'back through McCauley's mind like a horror
Movie on rewind during his recovery.
" Nightmares, hallucinations, helplessness.
paranoia, depression and guilt about survi -
,ing when others didn't. McCauley said he ex-
'perienced all of these mental demons and
-more during his struggle to get back to nor-
-mal. Pfc. Heat
It is a condition known as Post Traumatic macrosir
.Stress Disorder, first recognized during the
'Vietnam War era and now diagnosed frequently.
-among troops returning from Iraq. Head in-
-juries, doctors say, can make the condition
;worse.
McCauley's life was saved by modem mil-
;itary medicine and a fast-responding team of
medics, nurses, doctors and pilots. They re-
moved his spleen and a kidney in Iraq before
airlifting him to a regional hospital in Ger-
many to stabilize his wounds, then to Bethes- i
da for additional treatment and recovery....
But the bomb blast had sent McCauley fly-
ing from the open back of a truck, striking
his head Jiard against the ground and causing
it to gradually inflate to the size of a basket-
ball.
A tumor-like blood clot known technical-
ly as a subdural hematoma formed inside
his head, putting intense pressure on his
brain and causing him to lose consciousness
Surgery removed the blood clot. It did not
fix the mental anguish the 23-year-old Mc-
Cauley, of Kokomo, Ind., said accompanied Pfc. Heat
his condition. Mental anguish that eventually. are briefe
moved him to wonder if the military even are being
cared about his recurrent thoughts of trauma
Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman, medical
director and commander of the U.S. Army Medical Cen-
ter and School at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, said Mc-
Cauley's state of mind was predictable. He said more
than one in three soldiers who come back from Iraq face
post-combat mental health issues.

Loved ones play major role in managing


rheumatoid arthritis


The stressful feeling of a visit to the doctor is familiar to many
rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. The help and support of
friends and family may be crucial to alleviating these fears.

"Arthritis is a chronic condition. Patients with a strong support
network tend to be inrr better control of the disease," said Dr. John
Klippel, CEO of the Arthritis Foundation.

The effects of RA are not always obvious to others, although
this common form of arthritis impacts more than two million
people in the U.S. alone. Chronic inflammation in the lining of
joints can lead to decreased range of motion, fatigue and
permanent joint damage.

While loved ones cannot reduce the painful symptoms of RA,
they can be important partners in managing the disease. Third
parties can help patients recall important information and
instructions, as well as help guide the discussion with healthcare
providers. In fact, studies have shown that 20 to 50 percent of
what is said in the doctor's office is forgotten.

RA can be especially humbling for people who want to be
independent, leaving them feeling embarrassed or reluctant to
engage those closest to them. By creating a network of friends
and family who can offer assistance, an RA patient doesn't have
to rely on any one individual for help. Following are some tips to
help create a successful support team:

Tell friends, coworkers and family precisely the help needed.

Develop a list of friends and family who are willing to help.

Keep a detailed calendar to schedule specific tasks.

Use professional services for physically challenging tasks like

The peace of mind that comes with knowing that someone is
always available to offer encouragement, companionship and

Continued From Page 1C

Later he was transferred
from Bethesda to the Indi-
anapolis Veterans Hospital
in his home state of Indiana,
allowing him to be closer to
family and friends. It was
here, he said, that he first
talked to a military doctor
about Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder. He did not con-
fide in anyone else.
Then, McCauley said, he
was sent to Camp Pendle-
ton, Calif., the home base of
his Marine unit, and given
the impression he was well
enough to recover on his
own. That's when his mis-
givings began to bubble up
about the military methods
of treating post-combat
stress. Yet, he admitted, he
still didn't say anything to
anybody.
"My unit didn't even
know I was coming back,"
said McCauley. "They stuck
me in a room by myself,
and pretty much just left me
there."
McCauley didn't recall
precisely how long his soli-
tary recovery went on "a
month, five or six weeks ...
staring at bare walls" but
he said during that.time he
became addicted to
painkillers, and continued to
suffer from terrifying flash-
backs.
Fellow Marines would
come by his room once or
twice a week, but McCauley
said he never asked them
for help.
"I didn't know if they
didn't know how bad of
shape I was in," he said.
"Some of that you could
construe as being my fault
because ... being a Marine
makes it a lot harder to ad-
mit that you can't handle
something."
Marines, McCauley said,
are "taught to suck it up,
suck it up, quit being a
blank blank blank blank
blank. That is drilled into
us; you keep going no mat-
ter what. A little pain is nor-
mal. So we don't say any-
thing."
Weightman, one of the
Army's top medical offi-.:
cers, said reluctance to ask
for assistance is due to the
stigma connected with psy-
chiatric recovery problems
in the macho culture of the
military.
"We are trying to take
that stigma away," said
Weightman. "If I had a
sprained ankle, I would go
seek care for it. So why not
seek help if I'm having
nightmares or I fly off the
handle a lot quicker than I
used to?"
The New England Journal
of Medicine studied the is-
sue two years ago, estimat-
ing that between 15 and 17
percent of U.S. soldiers who
served in Iraq suffered from
mental disorders but only
half of them sought care
upon returning home.
Brig. Gen. Michael J.
Kussman, a medical doctor
and a top official with the
Veterans Health Administra-
tion, said the military is
aware of the problem, and
has made psychological re-
habilitation of war-tested
soldiers a primary concern.
He said poly-trauma cen-
ters to treat veterans with
severe physical and mental
wounds have been strategi-
cally established in Min-
neapolis, Minn., Palo Alto,
Calif., Richmond, Va., and
Tampa, Fla. Additional cen-
ters will be built, he said, as
the need increases.
"We are quite prepared to


take care of any veteran
who comes to see us," said
Kussman.
Some of the best proven
therapy, both Weightman
and Kussman said, can
come from talking with' oth-
er soldiers who have been
through the trauma of war.
In McCauley's case, that
proved to be the right medi-
cine. P
The Indiana Marine said
he finally opened up to his


father, Greg McCauley,
about his post-combat
stress. His father, in turn,
called an officer he had met
at the Bethesda Naval Hos-
pital while visiting his son
there. And the next morn-
ing, two Marines from Mc-
Cauley's command post
were in his room to talk
about his nightmares and
misgivings.
"I told them I needed
help," said McCauley. "I
couldn't take it anymore."
At first, he underwent


Medics


special counseling. But Mc-
Cauley said he didn't like
talking to the Navy psychia-
trist because "he didn't go
through what I went
through." He said he felt
better after talking it out
with Marines who had been
in combat.
"That's how I found clo-
sure," he said. "It was tough
talking about it again, but it
eventually got easier. It got
easier and easier the more I
talked about it."
That's the lesson Mc-


Cauley would like to pass
on to other soldiers who
suffer from post-combat
stress tied to the trauma of
war: don't internalize frus-
tration and anger. Let it out.
"Whether they try to
swallow it, it's eventually
going to come out," he said.
"Whether it's a month later,
five years later, 10 years lat-
er. Everybody eventually
deals with it and the longer
you wait, the worse it is."

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
After adding an addition to our
house, my wife is convinced I never
finish any project. I worked hard on
everything except for the outside. I
bought the vinyl siding, but never got
around to installing it. That was nine
years ago. Now we're looking to sell
the house. During this process, I
found a unique tax loophole. It
seems our town doesn't reassess an
addition until the construction is
complete. Now I have no motivation
to finish the siding. My wife thinks
the house would sell better if the sid-
ing were installed, but I'm thinking
people would like a "handyman spe-
cial", especially if it's a "For Sale By
Owner". The addition is almost com-
plete, so I assume buyers won't
expect much of a price break.
Would I be better off finish-
ing the job I started or just
selling the house as is? I'd
give the new homeowners
all the siding in the garage!

Carry: Ninq years to install siding?
That's some solid procrastination!
Cash: Whether you install the siding
or not, we think your wife won the argu-
ment about not finishing projects. After
nine years, completing the task now


Duane "Cash" Holze "
& Todd "Carry" Holze


ir Dn i


probably isn't going to convince her
otherwise.
Carry: As for your house, your wife is
correct again.. In most markets, potential
buyers like the idea of buying a finished
home and that includes the exterior. By
installing the siding, your house would
appear more attractive and be of interest
to more people. That would also allow
you to have a higher asking price.
Cash: Besides, your neighbors
would probably enjoy seeing your
house finished as well.
Carry: If you're having difficulty find-
ing the motivation to finish the job, con-
sider this. If you advertise your house
without the siding, as you predict, many


people may consider it a handyman spe-
cial that needs a little TLC. Those peo-
ple will also want a considerable price
break for the work of doing it them-
selves or hiring a contractor.
Cash: Leaving the job unfinished
can cause other problems as well. At
the time of sale, you may run into
issues with your town related to your
building permit or taxes. Both of these
have the potential to create difficulties
during the closing.
Carry: If you have the time before
the sale, it's best to complete the job
you started. Besides with the siding on
the house, imagine how roomy your
garage will be.


Choosing Sides
Believe it or.not, the U.S Census
Bureau tracks the choice of exterior
wall materials for new houses.
According to their information, the use
of brick on newly built homes declined
from 32% in 1975 to only 20% in 2005.
Wood exteriors have declined as well,
from 36% to a mere 7%. However, oth-
ers have taken their place. The choice
of stucco has jumped from 10% to 22%
in the same time frame. And although
vinyl siding wasn't tracked early on, its
,use has increased from 23% in 1992 to
34% in 2005. In the Northeast, vinyl
siding is used on.a whopping 83% of all
newly built homes.
It Can Be Taxing
The. Tax Foundation, a nonprofit
research group, estimated the 2006 tax
burden for residents in each state. Their
research accounts for state income tax,
local property tax, sales tax and many
others. According to the estimates
Alaska, New Hampshire, and Delaware
were the cheapest three states to live in
with less than 8.4% of your annual
salary allocated toward taxes. Maine
(13.5%), New York (12.9%) and Ohio
(12%) were.amongthe highest.
Got a question or funny story? Call (888) 242-
3644 or write: Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Final Notice
I'm the kind of guy who is very
organized. It came in handy when I
put an extension on my house. I was
able to subcontract most of the ork,
keep tabs on the schedule and track
all the bills. I'm always very prompt
in paying them on time.
Then I received one bill from the
electrician I hired that said, "Second
and F inal Notnce". I \ias horrified
since I never miss a payment and
needed his serx ices again in a few
weeks. I immediately called him up
and apologized for my delay.
"I'm so sorr)," I pleaded. "I just
ne% er recei ed the first notice."
"I didn't send one," he laughed. "I
find second notices are much more
*effective."
