White Springs Town Council votes to suspend police chief


e:



Al.







Joseph.Subic

Melody Lee
Jasper News Manager
At a special meeting
Tuesday, Feb. 6, the W
Springs Town Counci
voted 3-2 to suspend
lice Chief Joseph Subi
til,the Council takes ft
their action. Vice-Mayo
Ralph Hardwick and
Council Member Will
Jefferson requested
special meeting after
Town Attorney Todd
Kennon notified them
the Florida Departme
Law Enforcement (FD
is investigating Subic
criminal act.
I Subic did not attend
meeting that would d
mine the status of his
ployment. Town Man
Robert Townsend state
that he had notified Si
of the meeting in fron
witnesses and Subic h
said he would not be


there.
"I couldn't attend the
meeting because I had to
take my children to their
soccer games," Subic said
Wednesday. "I couldn't
change my plans at such
short notice."
Vice-Mayor Hardwick
made the first motion to
terminate Subic due to the
information passed on to
the attorney. Council
Member Coretta UDell
Ford seconded the mo-
tion.
Kennon pointed out that
although someone is be-
ing investigated, that per-
son is innocent until
proven guilty. He said the
g on Council could vote to sus-
Vhite pend or dismiss Subic, or
1 wait and see what the re-
Po- suit of the investigation
c un- would be.
ur- When Council Member
or Tracy Woodward ques-
tioned Kennon, he said
ie the Town had not been of-
the ficially notified of the in-
vestigation, no charges
had been made against
that Subic and the FDLE had
nt of not made any recommen-
)LE) dations concerning Subic.
for a Mayor Joseph McKire
polled the audience for
I the their comments. Six peo-'
eter- ple were against terminat-
em- ing Subic, one supported
ager the motion and six were
:ed undecided at that time.
ubic Walter McKenzie, an
t'of audience member, said
iad White Springs has the
lowest crime rate in years


and the equipment and
training of the Police De-
partrnent were quantifi-
ably better than they have
ever been. "How can the
Town Council take away
the best we've been pro-
vided? I think you would
be derelict in your respon-
sibility."
After Kennon discussed
several relevant sections
of the charter with the
Council, Jefferson asked
Vice-Mayor Hardwick to
consider suspension for
Subic until the Council
could find out more about
the investigation.
Vice-Mayor Hardwick
and Ford withdrew the
motion and the second.
Vice-Mayor Hardwick
then moved to suspend
Subic without pay until
the Council takes further
action. Ford seconded the
motion. Kennon stated
that if the motion passed,
he would like the authori-
ty to hire an employment
law firm to review the.
charter and advise the
council on the way to pro-
ceed.
The audience was even-
ly divided on the motion -
four people supported the
motion and four were
against the motion. Six
people were undecided.
Woodward again spoke
in Subic's defense, "There
are no reasons; it's mostly
allegations. I think this is a
serious mistake. It is a
grossly inhumane way to


treat a person, especially
an employee."
The motion passed
with three in favor Vice-
Mayor Hardwick, Ford
and Jefferson and two


opposed Mayor McKire
and Woodward.
The Council next dis-
cussed the continuing op-
eration of the Police De-
partment. Jefferson


moved to retain the re-
maining two full-time of-
ficers and bring in sup-
port from the Hamilton

ber of the Florida
Association of City

the IIMC.
"I would like to

County Sheriffs Office
(HCSO) to supervise the
department. Woodward
pointed out that the Coun-
dl did not know if the
HCSO would be willing to
provide someone, what
their hours would be or
how much it would cost
the Town for their services.
Kennon recommended
that the Council authorize
someone to contact HCSO
and appoint one member of
the police force to act as a
temporary supervisor. The
motion and second on the
table was withdrawn and
Vice-Mayor Hardwick
made the motion to appoint
Officer Tracy Capallia as
temporary supervisor until
negotiations have been
completed with HCSO.
Ford seconded the motion.
When Mayor McKire
asked Officer Capallia if
she was willing to serve in
a supervisory capacity, she
answered that she would
be honored. The motion
was passed with four in fa-
vor and one opposed
(Woodward.)
Ford then made a motion
that Subic would have to
return all equipment that
belonged to the town to
Mayor McKire before 5
p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 7.
Jefferson seconded the
motion, which was passed
with four in favor and one
opposed (Woodward.)
Jefferson asked Mayor
McKire if he would be will-
ing to negotiate with HCSO
for someone to assist with
the Police Department.
"I will if all of you refuse
because I care'for this
town," Mayor McKire an-
swered. "But you made this
decision and I think you
should handle it."
Jefferson then made a
motion that Vice-Mayor
Hardwick and Townsend
would contact HCSO as
soon as possible to ask for
assistance. Ford seconded
the motion and it passed


unanimously.
When Officer Capallia
addressed the Council, she
said, "The Police Depart-
ment will remain status
quo. Police work is not only
protecting the public and
taking calls. There are ad-
ministrative duties and
training. I ask that you
bring someone back who is
aware of all of these re-
sponsibilities."
After the meeting, Officer
Capallia said she did not
expect the outcome of the
meeting. "I'm in limbo, like
I'm in a play and I have to
ad lib my lines." She
stressed again how impor-
tant it was to have someone
who understands all areas
of the department, not just
the parts the public sees.
Mayor McKire said the
Town's personnel policy
states that an employee
may be suspended without
pay except when an investi-
gation of allegations is re-
quired. Since Subic is being
investigated, Mayor McKire
feels that he should have
been suspended with pay.
He added it was "rather
harsh" to suspend someone
without pay based on sus-
picion of wrongdoing.
Heather Smith, FDLE
Public Relations, confirmed
that the Tallahassee Region-
al Operations Center is in-
vestigating Subic, but she
could not discuss the alle-
gations.
"This is a move by certain
elements in the community
to get rid of me and my of-
ficers so that the laws won't
be enforced," Subic said,
when contacted
Wednesday. "This all
started with us enforcing
the drug and DUI laws. It's
a matter of record that
crime has dropped by 36%
in less than six years.
'",This matter will be
cleared up shortly and then,
we will see what happens
in White Springs. The dam-
age is done, but I will have
to go back to clear my
name."


Subic is scheduled to talk
to the FDLE on Friday. He
said that some other city
managers have contacted
him about working in their
communities.

Springs resident, said that

Judge Scaff thinks that
crack cocaine is the biggest
crime issue in Hamilton
County. He intends to take a
strong stand against drug
users and dealers. He said
that crack cocaine leads to
other crimes, like burglary
and theft.
But he said that he is
ready for the job. "I love the
people, I love the job."


Motorists to monitor teenagers driving


Thanks to "Tell My
Parents," a new South
Georgia business, parents
can now use the eyes of
thousands of motorists to
monitor their teenage son
or daughter's driving be-
havior. A bumper sticker
encourages motorists to
call a 24-hour, toll free
number and report un-
safe teenage driving. A
similar program has been
used very successfully by
large trucking companies
to monitor the drivers of
their fleet of vehicles and
it had been reported to
have reduced vehicle ac-
cidents by 60 percent.
Every year over 6,000
teenagers are killed the
equivalent of Sept. 11,
2001, terronst attacks
happening twice in one
year. Another 300,000
teens are seriously in-
jured.in.auto accidents. ..
Auto wrecks are- the
number one cause of
death for children 16


through 19 years old.
Tell My Parents ipro-
vides a bright colorful,
attention-getting bumper
sticker that is placed on
the teen's auto. The
bumper sticker reads: IF
I AM DRIVING DAN-
GEROUSLY TELL MY
PARENT, CALL 1-877-
S35-7273, AND GIVE MY
I.D. 40000. This discour-
ages risky, fast, unsafe
driving because the teen
is constantly aware of the
fact that his or her vehi-
cle is now a marked ve-
hicle.
The company also
gives the parents a spe-
cial copyrighted Par-
ent/Teen Safe Driving
Contract to be signed by
both the teen driver and
the parents. The teen dri-
ver makes a safe driving
pledge'that carries set'
. consequences.and.pun-
ishment if or when the
teen driver violates the
driving contract. For in-


stance, driving after us-
ing drugs or drinking al-
cohol, lying about where
they were going, receiv-
ing a ticket or a warning
for speeding, or for being
called in and reported to
'TELL MY PARENTS.'
The yearly member-
ship fee is $195 for one
teen family driver and
$150 for each additional
teen driver in the same
family. This potentially
life saving teen driver
protection and parental
peace of mind only cost
the parents about fifty
four cents ad day, less
than the cost of a can of
soda pop.
The company is look-
ing for part item workers
to sell memberships to
South Georgia and North
Florida parents. Anyone
that's interested in buy-
ing or selling the pro-
gram -in their local area.

Dark chocolate is a


great Valentine treat
If you are requesting chocolate for Valentine's Day you
may want to direct your sweetheart to purchase the dark
variety. That's because dark chocolate can actually be
good for you, in addition to tasting delicious. Dark choco-
late is high in antioxidants, those substances that can help
fend off diseases. It may also help to lower blood pres-
sure. However, milk may interfere with the proper ab-
sorption of antioxidants, so don't wash it down with a tall
glass or mix chocolates if you want the full health bene-
fits. Though there's no longer a need to feel guilty when
indulging in a piece, remember moderation is key.

Looking for a good employee? woodwinds to


The following is the
third installment in a se-
ries of articles on United
Way agencies that operate
in Hamilton County.
Comprehensive Com-
munity Services (CCS,
Inc.) with offices in Jasper,
Live Oak and Macclenny,
has provided advocacy
and services to individuals
with intellectual and phys-
ical disabilities in Hamil-
ton, Suwannee, Lafayette,
Columbia and Baker coun-
ties for more than 25 years.
This agency was recent-
ly selected to participate in
a State of Florida initiative
on improving employ-
ment opportunities for
adults with disabilities.
With the support of repre-
sentatives from Georgia
State University and the
University of Tennessee,
the staff will work with


area businesses to increase
employment opportunities
for the adults served in
Hamilton County and the
surrounding areas.
To increase the aware-
ness that a person with a
disability can be a good
employee, several individ-
uals from CCS were in-
volved with local busi-
nesses. Managers at Jasper
Hardware and Jasper
Foodway acted as mentors
for part of a day with CCS
members.
According to Sharon.
Richards, CCS Services
Manager For Supported
Employment, "It was a
great match! The owners
of these two companies
showed a very progressive
business attitude by giv-
ing our people a chance to
learn more about their
companies. At the same


time the employees at each
of the participating com-
panies were able to get a
glimpse of the benefits of
working with a person
with a disability. We hope
to partner with other area
businesses in the near fu-
ture on similar projects."
CCS, Inc. is a communi-
ty based and qualified
501(c)3 not-for-profit cor-
poration providing advo-
cacy and employment
training for persons with
developmental disabilities
including mental retarda-
tion, cerebral palsy, visual,
hearing,- physical and
emotional disabilities. If
your business would like
to partner with CCS on a
future work related pro-
ject, call Sharon Richards
at 386-362-7143.
CCS, like many other
United Way affiliated


agencies, relies on commu-
nity support, including
that received through
United Way of Suwannee
Valley, to provide match-
ing funds for grants that
enable the agency to se-
cure more funds.
United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley is a volunteer-
driven community impact
organization that strives to
address health and human
service needs in three fo-
cus areas: ensuring our
children's future; furnish-
ing food, shelter and safe-
ty; and promoting inde-
pendence and wellness.
Our local United Way ad-
dresses these focus areas
through 22 affiliated
health and human service
agencies, of which 17 pro-
vide services to Hamilton
County.

World Poverty

If you're looking for a map
of world poverty, check out
the "2007 Index of Econom-
ic Freedom" jointly pub-
lished by the Heritage
Foundation and The Wall
Street Journal. You might
think that's a strangely ti-
tled source for a poverty
map.
The 13th edition of the
"Index of Economic Free-
dom" examines 10 econom-
ic characteristics of 157
countries. Among those
characteristics are property
rights, monetary stability,
and freedom from govern-
ment, trade restrictions,
business regulations and
government corruption.
Using these measures of
economic freedom, coun-
tries are ranked.
Hong Kong and Singa-.
pore, as they have for 13
years, rank as the world's
two economically freest
countries, with freedom
scores of 89 and 86 percent
free. Rounding out the top
10 most free economies are


Australia (83), United
States (82), New Zealand
(82), United Kingdom (82),
Ireland (81), Luxembourg
(79), Switzerland (79) and
Canada (79).
At the other end of the
list are the least free coun-
tries. Ranking 157th, North
Korea, with a freedom
score of 3 percent, is the
world's least free country.
Ranking 156th is Cuba, 30
percent free, and in ascend-
ing order are: Libya (34)
Zimbabwe (36), Burma
(40), Turkmenistan (42),
Congo (43), Iran (43), An-
gola (43), and Guinea-Bas-
sau (45).
The "2007 Index of Eco-
nomic Freedom" displays a
color-coded map showing
countries that are free,
mostly free, moderately
free, mostly unfree and re-
pressed. Guess where one
finds the world's most mis-
erably poor people? If you
guessed the mostly unfree
and repressed countries,
you guessed correctly.
Some people claim that
some countries are rich be-
cause of abundant natural
resources. That's nonsense!
Africa and South America
are probably the richest


grants now available


Parents and caretakers
across the country can ap-
ply for grants of up to
$5,000 for health care ser-
vices that will help .improve
their children's health and
quality of life. The United-
Healthcare Children's
Foundation (UHCCF) will
cover medical services such
as speech therapy, physical
therapy and psychotherapy
sessions; medical equip-
ment such as wheelchairs,
braces, hearing aids and
eyeglasses; and orthodontia
and dental treatments.
To be eligible for UHCCF
grants, children must be 16
years of age or younger.
Families must meet ecd-


continents in natural re-
sources, but are home to
some of the world's poorest
people. By contrast, coun-
tries like England, Japan
and Hong Kong are poor in
natural resources, but their
people are among the
world's wealthiest. Hong
Kong even has to import its
food and water. Some peo-
ple use the history of colo-
nialism as an excuse for
poverty. That's also non-
sense. The United States
was a colony. So were
Canada, Australia, New
Zealand and Hong Kong,
but they're rich countries.
The reason some coun-,
tries are rich while others
are poor is best explained
by the amount of economic
freedom its peoples enjoy
and the extent of govern-
ment control over econom-
ic matters. Don't make the
mistake of equating eco-
nomic freedom with
democracy. After all, India,
politically, is a democracy,
but economically it is most-
ly unfree and poor, ranking
104th in economic freedom.
There are countries on the
econonuc treedom'n mde\'
that do not have much of a
history of democracy, such
as Chile, ranking 11th, and
Taiwan, 26th, and yet these
countries are far wealthier
than some of their more de-
mocratic counterparts.
Why? It's because their eco-
nomic systems are free or
mostly free, which is not
guaranteed by a democrat-
ic political system.
The economic develop-
ment lesson is clear: Have a


nomic guidelines, reside in
the United States and be
covered by a commercial
health insurance plan.
The UHCCF is a public
charity that operates inde-
pendently from United-
Healthcare with its own
board of directors. While
UHCCF continues to be
supported principally by
UnitedHealth Group and
its employees, it also looks
for individual and corpo-
rate donations to help pro-
vide assistance. Donors can
designate funds to be used
in the region where they re-
side; otherwise unspecified
donations are divided
equally among the regions.


system of economic free-
dom and grow rich. Exten-
sive government control,
weak property rights and
government corruption al-
most guarantee poverty. A
country's institutional in-
frastructure is critical to its
economic" growth and the
well-being of' its citizens.
The most critical are pro-
tection of private property,
enforcement of contracts
and rule of law.
To help our fellow man
around the world, we must
convince him to create the
institutional infrastructure
for wealth creation. Foreign
aid, International Monetary
Fund bailouts and other
handouts are not substi-
tutes. They just make polit-
ical survival possible for
the elite whose self-serving
policies keep a nation poor.
Except for immediate dis-
aster relief, foreign aid is
probably the worst thing
the West can do for poor
countries. After all, how
much foreign aid is neces-
sary for a country to create
the foundations for growth:
rule of law, enforcement of
contracts and private prop-
erty rights protection?

10th Annual Open


Underwater tactics with Ken Cook Bass Tournament


Turning cold
weather into

hot fishing
If it's not snow or freez-
ing rain, it's bone-chilling
air temperatures and icy
winds that make a day on
the water nearly insuffer-
.able. But just because
you're uncomfortable, it
doesn't mean that the bass
are. Sure, it's cold outside
and I'm sure you still have
some holiday shopping to
do, btft bass are still in the
lake. If they want to make
it through the winter they
will have to eat.
As the water tempera-
ture drops, bass follow the
migrating shad out to
deeper water (deep being
anywhere from 30 to 40
feet in clear, deep lakes or
six to eight feet in murky,
shallow ones). Use your
electronics and find the
balls of shad. There's sure
to be some bass nearby,
holding up in vertical,
deep cover. Typically,
bass will be easier to find
down lake on outside
channel swings, bluff
faces and points with ver-
tical drops.


Since bass are cold
blooded, the colder water
has slowed them down -
so you should slow down,
too. This ties in directly to
your bait selection, the
most important aspect to
catching bass in the cold.
Just because the bass are
following migrating shad
that doesn't mean that's
all they will eat. Fish biol-
ogists have discovered
that a bass prefers a bait
about three inches long
and about an inch in di-
ameter. That jig that you
spent all summer pitching
into the bushes will do
just fine. But instead of re-
lying on the oldest known
fishing lure by itself, I like
to dress mine up with the
newest technological ad-
vancement in fishing bait.
On a 3/8-ounce jig, I
trim the skirt just past the
hook to keep it from hav-
ing too large a profile
since I want to put a large
trailer on it. I rig a Berkley
Gulp! Bat Wing Frog as
the trailer. These two baits
are meant to be fished
slow the perfect presen-
tation for a cold-blooded
bass in wintertime. I cut
the front of the bait off just


behind the eye and thread
it onto the jig hook. The
legs on the Bat Wing Frog
flutter like crazy on the
fall and with the slightest
movements.
The Gulp! trailer isn't
made of plastic so it actu-
ally breathes underwater
and disperses scent like
no other bait ever made.
And the slower you fish it,
the more scent builds up
in an area, expanding the
strike zone by drawing in
sluggish fish in search of
an easy meal that might
have not been interested
otherwise.
There's no secret to
catching bass in the mid-
dle of winter. Just like any
other time of year, you
have to figure out the
right pattern. And once
you figure out where they
are, slow down your pre-
sentation; The fishing can
be good enough to make
you forget all about the
plummeting tempera-
tures.

Bassmaster Classic cham-
pion and a*14-time Classic
qualifier. A former fish-
eries biologist, Cook lives
on a ranch in Meers, Okla.

This column this week
will begin with a true life
story. Although we have
heard about stories like this
happening, maybe some-
thing on television, or read
of it in other newspapers,
but not to someone we
know personally who has
experienced such a heart-
warming event and shared
it i tli us. I hope that it will
touch your heart as it did
mine.
Our friend, Charlene Zu-
l'.it%. whom many of you
know, has been in contact
with a grandson, whom she
has neither seen nor heard
o, in almost 26 \car-. Char-
lene's d.ihilhI.,r ga.ie birth
to a son 26 years ago. After
Charlene had cared for the
baby until he was seven'
months old, the daughter
gave him up for adoption,
gi\ ing; up all legal rights to
the point that no one could
try to contact him until he
was of legal age.
Seven years after this oc-
curred, the daughter was
brutally murdered. This
was a double tragedy for
Charlene. We cannot even
imagine the heartbreak she
has felt, to have the child
taken from her, then the
loss of a daughter in this

By Johnn:

The month of February
has officially arrived, and
next week we will celebrate
Valentine's Day, as well as
President's Day a joint cel-
ebration of the birthdays of
George Washington and
Abraham Lincoln. Express
your love and concern to
those who are dear to you,
not just on Valentine's Day
"but all year long.
As'an elementary school
student, I always loved
Valentine's Day. In those
days, many elementary
teachers made a huge
Valentine's Box and every-
one put their 'Valentines in-
side. You wrote the first
and last name of the person
to whom you were sending
the Valentine on the out-
side of the envelope, and
before your Valentine's
Day party, someone sorted
all them..
I well remember one
Valentine's Day, our school
secretary, Mrs. LP (Ozella)
Allison, told me she was


manner. She has had
to live with this for
26 years. N
In recent months,
Charlene has been
through cancer, is By Lill
still in treatment and
has been having to
take chemotherapy and
deal with all the traumas of
treatments, illness and ef-
fects of this terrible ordeal.
She has said that if she
could find and see this
grandson, it would all be
worth it and she could be
happy. It seems that she
had been able to learn the
name he had been given,
Geoffrey Sisco.
While two of Charlene's
brothers have been here
visiting their mother, other
children were busy trying
to locate Geoffrey. They
did locate him on Internet.
They have all been in touch
and planning a reunion in
Vermont, with the ap-
proval of his adoptive par-
ents. He lives in New Jer-
sey and the reunion will be
taking place in Vermont.
Charlene believes that
this is an answer to her
prayers. She believes that if
she could get a chance to be
with him again, she would
be able, to deal with what-

going to give me some
"Tulip Salve." She painted
her lips with bright red lip-
stick and gave me a big
smack on the cheek leaving
the lip print on my cheek
and said "There is your
'two lip' salve." I must
have been in third for
fourth grade, but I still re-
member that to this day.
Mrs. Allison is still living
in Sebring, and I hear from
friends of hers once in a
while. Her husband, the
late Mr. Lawrence P. Alli-
son, was the principal
when I entered school at
White Springs in 1964.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to Rhett Bullard and

these folks many more hap-

joyed a delicious "Low

trimmings.
A black, white, and silver
color scheme was used for
the evening's celebration.
Dining tables were overlaid
with black cloths and held
black and silver center-

number "50." Black, white,

were placed throughout

This was a wonderful

home of Tommy and Nan
Hamm on Sunday evening.
They had loads of good
food and fun before and
during the game. They
were joined by the youth of

good fellowship before and
during the game. They
spent part of the time di-

cheer for "their' favorite
team" but always in the
best of spirit'(we hope); It
was a good way to spend a

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.
"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.


Fooisite at the mag ficenm tKoss sBrage Gof tIesorr ana Spa in
Birmingham, 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.

Makim sense of arthritis treatments Assistance with Medicare questions available


Selecting the most cost-
effective way to treat os-
teoarthritis (OA), can be a
problem or dilemma for
many consumers. It is also
a concern for professionals
in the aging field.
Affecting more than 20.7
million Americans, OA has
a sizable impact on the na-
tion's economy, resulting
in seven million doctor's
visits a year. As a result, the
Arthritis Foundation re-
ports that treating OA and
other forms of arthritis
costs the economy almost
$125 billion a year, includ-
ing medical expenses and
lost productivity.
To lower these costs, the
American College of
Rheumatology and the
American Pain Society
have issued guidelines for
the treatment of OA, advis-
ing those with mild to
moderate OA to start with
inexpensive treatment op-
tions such as exercise and
an over-the-counter pain
reliever like aceta-
minophen.
These organizations con-
cluded that acetaminophen
provides the same relief of
symptoms as the more ex-
pensive prescription arthri-

fewer side effects like seri-
ous stomach irritation. Ac-
etaminophen will not inter-
fere with most over-the-
counter and prescription
medications consumers
may be taking for health
problems other than OA.
Despite these recommen-
dations, a new survey finds
that most consumers don't
know how to determine the
most cost-effective OA
treatments. Conducted by
Harris Interactive for the
Alliance for Aging Re-
search, this poll of 1,000
Americans aged 18 and
over finds that 68 percent
believe that deciding which
treatments are most cost-ef-
fective is difficult and as
many as 29 percent say that
making this decision is ex-
tremely difficult.
Because of this unease,
the survey finds that many
consumers are looking for
help in talking to their doc-
tor about managing their
OA symptoms. Specifical-
ly, three-quarters of the
public say they would be
willing to talk to their doc-
tor about the costs of differ-
ent medications if they had

Floridians are guessing
when it comes to estimating
their costs and responsibili-
ties in paying for long-term
care and mostly they are
guessing wrong, with po-
tentially disastrous financial
implications for themselves
and their heirs, a new
AARP survey of Floridians
45 and older shows.
In fact,' 54 percent of
Floridians assume that the
federal Medicare program
or their private Medicare-
supplement ("Medigap")
insurance will cover the cost
of extended nursing-home
care. Actually, Medicare ful-
ly covers the cost of skilled
nursing care for only 20
days. Sixty percent of Amer-
icans 65 and older will need


long-term care for three
months or more at some
point in their lives, accord-
ing to government studies.
Long-term care provides
ongoing help with daily ac-
tivities such as bathing,
dressing, or preparing
meals in your home, com-
munity, or nursing home
setting.
"This study shows how
important it is to begin plan-
ning and making future
health care choices sooner,
rather than later," said Lori
Parham, AARP Florida In-
terim State Director. "An es-
timated nine million people

By Jonathan Banks
Well, hello, everyone,
welcome to this weeks
"Trojan News." Limited
topics for this week; hope
you enjoy.
Hamilton County High
School had a wonderful vis-
it on Thursday, Feb. 1, by
the Commissioner of Edu-
cation, Mr. John Wynn.
Along with Commissioner
Wynn, came an entourage
of his advisors and col-
leagues, and Mr. Penning-
ton, the Superintendent. Mr.,
Wynn came to our school
especially to see the eighth
grade students. He wanted
to know what the students
were interested in and what
they liked to do during and
after school. Most impor-
tantly, he discussed the ma-
jor and minor areas of study
they will have to choose for
next year. I was very
pleased to meet Commis-
sioner Wynn, and in the
short period I was around


him, I would have enjoyed
discussing other issues re-
garding our school and our
school system.
The District Spelling Bee
was held at HCHS on
Thursday, Feb. 1, at 10 a.m.
in the Media Center. I guess
I'll go ahead and talk about
the facts, then the edgy de-
tails later. The hostess was
Suzette Wiggins, Media
Specialist at HCHS. The of-
ficial word caller was John-
ny Bullard from the District
School Board office. Judges
were the media specialists
from other schools in our
District: Shelby Henderson
of CHE; Betty Kelly of SHE;
and Betty Sue Zant of NHE.
All participants ranged
from the fifth to the eighth
grade.
Participants were Corinth
Christian Academy: Laura
Bontrager, Allison Parks
and Jared Ragans. CHE:
Ciera Bassett, Bethany
Leonard and Trey Norris.


HCHS: Jared Altmix, Tuck-
er Patrick and Shelby Wills.
NHE: Josh Blunt, Dalton
Norris and Emily Scaff.
SHE: Savannah Pruit, Brian-
na Register and Danielle
Tryjillo.
. The spelling- bee went
very quickly as the competi-
tors began to drop out like
bombs from the sky. The
clash wasn't until there
were two remaining
spellers, once again Jared
Altmix and Tucker Patrick.
These two caused the
judges to. select even more
difficult words, because
they were so quick and pre-
cise at the microphone.
Then it all came down to
one word; chandelier. Tuck-
er Patrick misspelled it and
Jared Altmix corrected it
and spelled his own, win-
ning word, quarantine. A
winner was crowned and
Tucker Patrick's consecu-
tive reign was demolished,
by the 2007 Hamilton Coun-

livered items.
Students are not allowed

Things to know about the Apple iPhone


were completely out-
side the realm of ac-
cepted thought.
What kind of fea-
tures?
The fact that the
iPhone can play
music, take and
display .pictures,
play videos,
make phone
calls, browse the
r Web and store
contact and cal-
endar informa-
tion is almost the
least-exciting as-
pect of the gad-
get. Other devices
like. the Blackber-
ry and Palm Treo
offer most, if not
all, of these func-
tions in their own
"smart phones."
What's really im-
pressing many observers
is how it does all that, and
how nice it looks while doing it.


By Kevin Purdy
CNHI News Service


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. What's so
great about a phone that it has every
tech reporter wearing out their keyboard
writing about it?
Part of the answer involves how many
rumors, speculations and fake Photo-
shopped'prototypes have been circulat-
ing among the Apple faithful for years.
Something kept a tight secret for two
years by one of the most-watched tech-
nology companies is bound to make
waves when it hits.
But the simplest explanation is that
Apple did what it has done with most of
its other big product launches intro-
duced a bunch of features and ideas that


connecting to iTunes on both Macs and
PCs, ambient light sensor.
That's cool, but is the phone function
any better than what I have now?
One would have to ask a local Cingu-
lar customer how pleased they are with
service to answer part of that question,
although Cingular is noted for having
some of the most vocal critics in the
tech world. As for actual phone func-
tion, there are a few nifty improve-
ments.
Rather than having to run through
voicemails sequentially by pressing a
key, the iPhone lets you look at all the
voicemails you have waiting and choose
to listen by caller.
The finger-scrolling and quick-find
methods used throughout the interface
are touted as offering an easier way to
find and call contacts.
When using the built-in Google
Maps function, a tap or two on a nearby
business or home pulled up in a search
makes the call, there.
How much will it cost?
Depends on how much storage space
you want for all those songs, pictures,
videos and personal data. The 4-giga-


The fact that the iPhone can play music, take and
display pictures, play videos, make phone calls, browse
the Web and store contact and calendar information
is almost the least-exciting aspect of the gadget.


There is only one real button on the
front of the device, and everything is
controlled on a roughly 3.5-inch by 2.4-
.inch screen that is noticeably sharp.
Every function is controlled by an "in-
telligent" touch-screen version of .the
Mac OS X software. When you hold the
device to your ear, it quickly changes to
calling mode. When you turn it side-
ways to look at landscape photos or
widescreen movies, it automatically
flips the image for you.
The quick hits of the other gee-whiz
stuff: full Bluetooth capabilities, wire-
less access, docking station included for


byte model is $499, while an 8-gigabyte
phone is $599.
Does ANYBODY have doubts about
this thing?
Yes they do. Here are a few com-
plaints raised on well-read blogs and
news sites covering Apple and gadgets:
The basic idea of paying $500 (or
$600) for a device with a big glass
screen that could be more susceptible to
scratches and breaking than the abuse
standard phones go through. Many first-
generation iPod Nano users can collec-
tively groan on this topic.
The unanimous complaint is tied to


Cingular's cellular Internet service,
EDGE, which is considerably slower
than the increasingly popular 3G stan-
dard. While the wirelessInternet func-
tion somewhat makes up for it, it could
make for slow e-mail and unbearably
long downloads outside access points
While Apple claims the device gets
eight hours of battery life under normal
use, reports clock the battery at just two
hours while videos are played. Watching
a few episodes of "The Office" on a
plane, therefore, could leave a user
without a powered phone.
At the .moment, only Apple software
can run on the iPhonie, so users can't
make up for anything Apple left out -
including support for Microsoft Office
documents and RSS readers.
When can I trade my phone in for
this?
The iPhone won't be out until June,
assuming the device doesn't run into
any manufacturing hold-ups.
Unless you're a Cingular Wireless
customer, however, switching to an
iPhone could require,paying hefty can-
cellation fees and signing a mandatory
two-year service contract. Cingular is
the exclusive service provider for the
device, and has what was described as a
"multi-year" agreement with Apple.
Didn't Apple already help make, a
phone that could play MP3s and iTuries
purchases?
Yes, but they'd probably appreciate it
if you didn't remember that. Cingular
and Apple released a Motorola phone
called the ROKR in 2005, but a basic
cell phone that could only hold 100
songs and required being plugged into a.
computer to buy or change them caused
only a momentary buzz before fizzling
out.
Aren't there other devices called
"iPhones"?
Indeed, and one of their makers, Cisco
Systems, filed a lawsuit against Apple
Inc. on Wednesday in federal court. Cis-
co claims that it has held a trademark on
the name "iPhone" since 2000 and used
it as a brand on 'standard phones that can
make calls over Internet lines.

Florida shines at American Farm Bureau



Federation annual meeting in Salt Lake City


Florida Farm Bureau Federation


P.O. Box 14 -11UCrt Fc.Ir-!e, 3lr2i6,1 426-"V3 j",c *P~one i 52,. Y'XlisJ


Florida Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF)
President John Hoblick of Volusia County
has been elected to the board of directors
for the American Farm Bureau Federation
(AFBF). He was elected during the AFBF
annual meeting last week in Salt Lake
City. AFBF is the nation's largest agricul-
tural membership organization, with over
six million family members.
Delegates adopted several polices in line
with Florida Farm Bureau's recommnenda-
tions. The 366 delegates from across the
United States voted overwhelmingly in
support of comprehensive immigration re-
form that improves farmers' timely access
to legal farm workers. Another Florida
Farm Bureau priority that was included
was the addition of specialty crops in the
2007 farm bill. Delegates were in favor
FFBF's resolution for the exclusion of
pests and disease through the implementa-
tion of better inspection of imports and
cooperation between the Department of
Homeland Security and USDA Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Service. AFBF
also adopted the citrus canker policy rec-
ommended by Farm Bureau members.
This policy supports the development and
implementation of a formal plan such as
the Florida Citrus Health Response Plan
that helps growers manage and control the
spread of citrus pests and diseases.
Florida Farm Bureau had more than 100
members attending this year's national
conference. Those attending witnessed
several accomplishments by individuals,
counties and the state organization.
Ginny Paarlberg of Lee was elected to
the Women's Leadership Committee of the
American Farm Bureau Federation. Paarl-
berg is chair of Florida Farm Bureau's


Women's Leadership Committee.
Steve and Andrea Johnson of Bowling
Green were named runners-up in the
American Farm Bureau Achievement
Award Competition, placing them among
the top five young farmers in the nation.
The Achievement Award recognizes young
farmers and ranchers who have excelled in
their farming or ranching operations and
exhibited superior leadership abilities.
Participants are evaluated on a combina-
tion of their agricultural operation's
growth and financial progress, Farm Bu-
reau leadership and leadership outside
Farm Bureau.
Florida Farm Bureau was also recog-
nized with four Awards for Excellence,
which are presented to state Farm Bureaus
that have demonstrated outstanding
achievements in meeting their members'
needs. Florida was recognized in the areas
of Education and Agricultural Promotion,
Leadership Development, Member Ser-
vices and Public Relations and Informa-
tion.
During the convention, Carl B. Loop,
Jr., who for 23 years was president of the
Florida Farm Bureau, was honored for his
service to national agriculture issues and
to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Loop was honored during the general ses-
sion on Jan. 7. He had served on the
AFBF board for two decades and was vice
president for six years.
Two County Farm Bureaus from Florida
were among 15 recognized by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Federation through the
County Activities of Excellence (CAE)
program for outstanding county Farm Bu-
reau programs and initiatives. Programs

Now that recycling is being
made easier for households, I
am more apt to recycle if at all
possible. Doing so has de-
creased the amount of trash 1
put out each week. I wasn't
completely filling my trash
bin. I made one phone call to
my trash hauling company and
found out a smaller bin was
available. They don't normally
offer it automatically, only if
you call and specifically re-
quest a smaller bin. This saves
me $8 per month. It doesn't
seem like much, but over the
course of a year, it amounts to
$96. I am a firm believer that
every "little bit" counts!

Suwannee Valley


By Pam Campbell


of two special days, my birthday
and Valentine's Day. When I
think of birthdays I think of cel-
ebrating with people that I love.
When I think of Valentine's Day, I think of a special
day to show love to people that I care about.
On Valentine's Day, many people give Valentine
cards, fancy boxes of candy, flowers, balloons and
other gifts to other people to remind them that they
love them or let them know that they care. Valen-
tine's Day is a wonderful time to show others that
you love them, but Valentine's Day should not be the
only time that we let people know that we care or re-
mind them that we love them. Life is too short to
wait until one certain day of the year; we need to
share love all year long.
On Valentine's Day and everyday we need to showy
genuine love to those around us. The word
"genuine" in the Merriam Webster's Dic-
tionary means "sincerely and honestly
felt or experienced; a deep and
genuine love." Genuine love is
the only real love, all others
have strings attached or "'
are just an act. God's
love for us is
genuine.
Have
you ever
gone to
visit a
child that
you have not-
seen for a
long time and
the first thing
they said to you
was "what did you bring me?" I can remember sev-
eral occasions when that is exactly how I was greet-
ed when visiting cousins in another state. We have
always taken them something from Florida just be-
cause we thought it would be a nice thing to do.
Children always love to receive a present and these
children are no exception. The thing that stands out
in my mind though is that the last few times that we
went to see them, it seemed like they expected us to
be bringing gifts, and were looking for more. I do
believe that they may have been just as happy had
we sent the gifts and not taken time to visit. You see,
that is an example of "gimme" love, not genuine
love. It is a sort of a selfishness, wanting gifts, but
not caring about the person giving the gifts with
love.
. When I was a child, I remember hearing a story
many times and it fits here today. It was about a lit-
tle boy who would try to show his mama how good

and loving he was, and anytime she would go some-
where without him, when she came home he was
expecting a surprise from her. If he did not get one,
he would cry, pout and get mad. If he went with his
mama to the store, he would scream and cry unless
she let him get a toy he wanted. He did not realize
that it was a privilege just to go to the store with his
mama. That is another example of "gimme" love,
and it is not genuine love. I remember that that
boy's mama ended up sick in a hospital and she
missed her little boy. When that mama finally got
well she was so excited about going home to her
son, when she got home just as she knew he would,
her little boy came running out to the car to her and
as she was reaching to hug him, she heard his
words. With an in-
credible sadness
in her heart, f
she -: '


",O.- : .. A ,e

walked
on into
the house,
realizing
that he only wanted
a present, not his own mama. In-
stead of telling her he loved her or that he was glad
,she was home from the hospital, he had asked her
what she had brought him for a present. That little
boy was being selfish and cruel to ask for presents.,
and not welcome his mama home with genuine love.
I seem to remember his mama telling him to love a
paper bag. He thought about it along time and he fi-
nally understood, at bedtime. He told his mama that
he really loved her more than presents, and was so
glad that she was home. They hugged each other and
felt that true genuine love that a mama and her child
have for each other. I am sure that all of us can think
of times that we remember or have heard about
where people, children and adults have had some of
that "gimme" love, and other times where we see
true genuine love.
You see in the Bible God tells us in 1 John 4:11

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love
one another." He tells us to love one another; he does
not say we must give presents. The greatest love of
all is God's love and God tells us to love each other,
not for what they will give us, or do for us, just love
them.
"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God;
he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love
to a thousand generations of those who love him and
keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:9. If you really
want to experience genuine love, receive the love of
God. It is faithful, it will last forever, God will al-
ways love you. On Valentine's Day, we should be
looking to the creator, the God of all love. Only
when we look at the love God has for us, will we
find out what genuine love really is. The greatest ex-
ample of genuine love is in a passage most of us
know by heart, John 3:16: "For God so loved the
world, that he gave his
only begotten son, that
& whoeverr believeth in
him should not perish,
but have everlasting
life." God gave us
the most important
gift that he could
ever give, his only
son whom he loved, be-
cause he knew that was the only
way that all of us would ever receive salva-
tion from our sins, the only way that we- can
ever get to heaven to be with him, and the only
way that we would ever know genuine love.
On Valentine's Day be sure to remember your
mom, your dad, grandparents, other relatives and
close friends, and especially remember your spouse,
your children or grandchildren, it will mean so much
to them that you remembered! Share love with
friends, neighbors, teachers; shut-ins, everyone you
can. A special thing that you can do that means so
much is to spend some time with them! Don't just
give gifts to those that you think will give you some-
thing, this is the time to show love with no strings at-
tached. Remember, it is better to give than to re-
ceive! Share genuine love, not the "gimme" kind.
Most important of all remember to let God know
how much you appreciate his love and desire to live
more and more for him. The greatest love of all is
not shown with a Valentine card or flowers or bal-
loons, it is how you show Jesus you love him by
giving him your heart. Matthew 22:37: "Jesus said
unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
mind."
Remember, Valentine's Day is a day to show gen-
uine love to others, and remember to show God the
Creator of love, that you love him. Have a very
Happy and Blessed Valentine's Day full of genuine
love!-Pam

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


Real Love


By Pam Campbell
When I think of the month of Febru-
ary, I think of two special days, my
birthday and Valentine's Day. When I
think of birthdays I think of celebrating
with people that I love. When I think
of Valentine's Day, I think of a special
day to show love to people that I care
about.
On Valentine's Day, many people
give cards, candy, balloons, flowers
and other presents to people that they
love. Valentine's Day is a real good
time to remind the people that you care
about, that you really love them. Re-
member though that you should show
your love to them everyday of the year,
not just on Valentine's Day.
Have you ever had someone act as if
they were your friend because they
wanted something that you had?
Maybe they pretended to be very
friendly to get you to give them your
candy bar and when you gave it to
them then they just left you alone.
Maybe some of you in school have had
another student act as if they were your
friend because they knew you made
good grades on the
last test. They
wanted you to
help them cheat
and give them the -.
answers for the
next test. When
you told them no,
that you did not
cheat and would
not help them
cheat, and then
they were not bud- .
dy-buddy any-
more. You see the
problem is that is


not real love, or
real friendship,
that is a "gimme" kind of love. They
are being selfish, only wanting things
to help themselves.
I heard a story about a little boy that
would always greet his mama whenev-
er she came home from shopping by
asking her what she had brought him.
If she did not bring him something ,
then he would cry, and get mad and
leave the room. If he went to the store
with his mama he would try to act real
sweet and good, then he would ask for
a new toy. If his mama said that he
could not get that toy that day, he
would scream and cry. That is an ex-
ample of "gimme" love, and it is not
real love. The little boy's mama got
sick and was away in a hospital and
she missed her little boy. When his
mama finally got well, she was so ex-
cited about going home to her little
boy. When she got home, her little boy
came running out to the car to her and
as she was reaching to hug him, she
heard his words. His words made her
very sad. Instead of telling her he
loved her or that he was glad she was
home from the hospital, he had asked
her what she had brought him for a
present. That little boy was being self-
ish to ask for presents and not welcome
his mama home with real love. His
mama told him to hug and love a bag
from a store. He thought about it along
time and he finally understood. Later
he told his mama that he really loved
her more than presents, and was so
glad that she was home. They hugged
each other and felt that true real love
that mamas and children have for each.


other
You see in the Bible God tells us in
1John 4:11, "Beloved, if God so loved
us, we ought also to love one another."
He tells us to love each other; he does
not say we must give presents. The
greatest love of all is God's love and
God tells us to love each other, not for
what they will give us, or do for us,
just love them.
The best place to. see what real love
is can be found right in your Biblein
John 3:16: "For God so loved the
world, that he gave his only begotten
son, that whosever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting
life." God gave us the most important
gift that he could ever give, because he
knew that was the only way that all of
us would ever receive salvation from
our sins, the only way that we can ever
get to heaven to be with him, and the
only way that we would ever know
real love.
On Valentine's Day, it is good to re-
member your mom, your dad, grand-
parents, brothers and sisters, other rela-
tives and close friends. Share love with
friends,
neighbors,


S.. and teach-
ers; some-
one that is
Sick, every-
one you can.
You can
make or buy
them a card
or present.
A special
w thing that
you can do
that is to
e lo' spend some
extra time
with them!
Don't just give gifts to those that
you think will give you something,
This is the time to show love and not
be looking for something for yourself.
Remember, it is better to give than to
receive! Share real love, not the
"gimme" kind.
The greatest love of all is how you
show Jesus you love him by giving
him your heart. Matthew 22;37: "Jesus
said unto


him, Thou
shalt love
the Lord
thy God
with all thy
heart, and
with all thy
soul, and
with all thy
mind."
Remem-
ber, Valen-
tine's Day
is a day to
show real
love to oth-
ers, and re-
member to
show God,
the Creator
of love,
that you
love Him.
Have a
very Hap-
py Valen-
tine's Day
full of real
love!

Learning disabilities can go undiagnosed


if parents don't pay close attention


As any parent of a school-aged child knows, kids can be cruel. Such cruelty is only further
magnified when children have a learning disability, one that noticeably comes to light in the
classroom. While this can make kids feel as if they're not as smart as the rest of the class, that's
typically not the case.
Children with learning disabilities can be of average or above-average intelligence. That's
evidenced by the nearly 3 million school-aged children with learning disabilities in the United
States alone. Such figures, reported by the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD),
indicate that children have a strong possibility of being diagnosed with a learning disability.
For parents, recognizing the different types and symptoms can be a great way to help kids
avoid having to struggle needlessly.
Dyslexia
Most people have heard of dyslexia and are probably aware it's a disability where the brain
has trouble processing information correctly. Children with undiagnosed dyslexia can be at a
major disadvantage, as classroom activity usually revolves around reading and writing. These
are areas where dyslexia typically causes its biggest problems. While dyslexia is not a
reflection of a child's intelligence, poor grades can result if the problem is undiagnosed.
Part of what makes dyslexia so difficult to diagnose is that children often don't exhibit signs
of the disorder early on. Early reading and writing, for instance, typically poses no problem.
However, as studies shift toward grammar, reading comprehension and more in-depth writing,
children with dyslexia begin to struggle.
Another symptom to look out for is trouble speaking and understanding others. Difficulty
with vocabulary as well as structuring thoughts are symptoms, as is difficulty comprehending
what others are saying. Perhaps the most damaging aspect of any of these symptoms is the
effect on a child's self-image. As mentioned, dyslexia is not a reflection of intelligence, but
children, especially those whose problem goes undiagnosed, can falsely assume that it is.
'Dyscalculia
One of the toughest subjects in school for most kids to grasp is mathematics. Sometimes that
difficulty can be the result-of dyscalculia, a learning disability involving math. While each
disability with math is different, there are certain early indicators parents should be on the
lookout for.
According to NCLD, among the earliest indicators are trouble understanding the meaning of
numbers; difficulty sorting objects by shape, size or color; trouble recognizing groups or
patterns; and trouble comparing and contrasting by using concepts such as bigger/smaller or
taller/shorter.
For school-aged children, problems might be less subtle. For example, children with
dyscalculia might struggle memorizing times tables. Math problems couldalso prove
exceedingly difficult, as children might not be capable of applying their knowledge and skills.
A problem with organizing ideas with respect to math could indicate dyscalculia as well.
This is known as a visual-spatial problem, wherein the child will understand the needed facts
to solve a problem but will struggle putting those facts and solutions down on paper. If any of
these problems go untreated or undiagnosed, older children, such as those in high school, will
exhibit difficulty moving on to higher level math courses.
Dysgraphia
Like dyscalculia, dysgraphia, which concerns problems. \\ iti writing, has the potential to be
written off by parents and educators alike. That's because it's common for parents to feel ihat
their children will struggle with math or writing as they did when they were kids. However,

Learning disabilities can go undiagnosed if parents don't pay close attention.

dysgraphia should be taken seriously, just like any other learning disability.
Symptoms of dysgraphia include poor handwriting, difficulty with spelling, and trouble
putting thoughts on paper. While not everyone's handwriting will be perfect nor will every
child qualify for the National Spelling Bee, it's important not to brush aside these symptoms.
Avoiding writing, having a tight and amwk ard grip on a pencil %hlile writing, and tiring
quickly while writing are indicative of the larger problem of dN sgraphia
Like dyslexia, dysgraphia is a processing disorder. As such, different degrees of the
disability exist, so not all children will have all of the aforementioned symptoms. Treatment is
often tailored to each individual's problems, ~vliethei finding a more suitable rntiming utensil or

Dear Classified Guys,
Two weeks ago I bought a massage
chair with a heater and massager
built into it. It's the kind you usually
see on demo at the mall. However, I
picked it up from the classified for
only $400. That's a steal since it sells
for almost $3,000 new. I know
because the person I bought it from
had the original receipt and paper-
work. I was so excited, I put it right in
front of our big screen TV. The prob-
lem is my rambunctious son broke
the massage mechanism within the
first month. Now it only massages
on the right side. While reading
through the paperwork, I discovered
that the previous owner bought an
extended warranty that may offer a
lifetime guarantee on the mecha-
nism. Does that mean I can
get the company to fix the -
part under warranty or am I ,'--.
out of luck because I
bought the chair used?

Cash: With a rambunctious son
around the house, you could probably
use a good massage. Although with
your dilemma, it looks like you'll only
be half relaxed.
Carry: It's always a good idea to get
the original paperwork or receipts when


e


UE

CLASHED,






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


-'o 02/04/07
@2007 The Classified Guys


you buy anything in the classified. In
your case, it not only told you the origi-
nal price, but it also offered valuable
information about the manufacturer and
warranty.
Cash: The first thing you should do is
read the warranty very carefully and
determine if the coverage applies to your
case. Many warranties limit their cover-
age to manufacturer defects and won't
cover problems resulting from consumer
abuse. However, some extended war-
ranties may offer additional coverage
with fewer limits.
Carry: It pays to read carefully.
After all, you don't want to ship the
product back only to find out the repair


isn't covered.
Cash: If you do think the warranty
applies, contact the manufacturer and try
to transfer the coverage into your name.
Many manufacturers allow warranties to
be transferred, however it is important to
file that paperwork before you attempt
to have it repaired.
Carry: If you find the damage isn't
covered under warranty, you can still
contact the manufacturer to find a local
dealer who can service the product.
Since you bought the chair at such a
great price, it may be worth the cost to
have it repaired.
Cash: Otherwise you'll have to sit in
it upside down to massage your left side.


Extended Warranties
Do you buy extended warranties on
new products? If so, you're not alone.
According to Consumer Reports, shop-
pers were expected to spend $1.6 billion
on extended warranties over the 2006
holiday season. However according to
their research, extended warranties are
rarely worth the cost. Most electronics
and appliances today are very reliable
which makes those unused warranties
very profitable for retailers and manufac-
turers. Most consumers also admit to
wanting a newer model with updated fea-
tures when their product finally breaks.
Pressure Cooker
Whether it's from commuting, dead-
lines, or long hours, many jobs bring
about a lot of stress. More and more
workers suffer from physical problems
like high blood pressure, headaches, achy
muscles, and loss of sleep because of the
stress experienced in their work environ-
ment. A recent report by the National
Institute for Occupational Safety and
Health, found that 40% of workers report
their job to be "very" or "extremely"
stressful. Nearly 550 million working
days are lost annually from stress relat-
ed absenteeism.

Stressing Out
Working at a Weekly magazine
makes my office very fast paced.
Most newly hired employees go
crazy trying to keep up with the mul-
tiple projects and deadlines.
That's exactly what happened to
my new assistant. When I walked
into the office one afternoon, I found
her struggling to answer the phones
while printing reports and swimming
through a sea of papers on her desk.
Noticing she was near a breakdown, I
went over to calm her down.
"The only way to do this," I said,
"is to concentrate on one task at a
time." After a few deep breathes I
continued, "Now what are you going
to do first?"
Surprisingly she replied, "I'm
going to lunch!"
