Education Commissioner

John Winn visits HCHS


Promotes new Major Areas of
Interest for ninth graders,


Students entering the
ninth grade in the 2007-08
school year will be able to
select classes where they
can study subjects of spe-
cial interest to them. The
new program, called Major
Areas of Interest (MAI), is
part the A++ Plan for Edu-
cation.
Florida Education Com-
missioner John Winn visit-
ed Hamilton County High
School on Thursday, Feb.
1, to talk to eighth grade
students about the oppor-
tunity they have to take
charge of their education.
By selecting classes in their
major areas of interest, the
students can study a sub-
ject of special importance
to them or learn about a


profession or skill of their
choice.
"Students will become
more engaged in and ap-
preciate the relevance of
high school studies be-
cause they will be making
choices that allow them to
pursue their interests,"
said Commissioner Winn.
Students entering the
ninth grade in August will
have to earn four credits in
their major areas of interest
to graduate. To complete a
Major, four consecutive
courses must be completed
within the four years of
high school. Students do
not have to complete a ma-
jor to graduate but they
must be enrolled in a ma-
jor area of interest each


,year. They can change their
major each year.
Major areas of-interest
may include classes in ca-
reer and technical pro-
grams, fine and perform-
ing arts, or academic con-
tent areas. Students should
work with their
parents/ guardians, guid-
ance counselors and teach-
ers to identify major areas

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Lately I have been try-
ing to take note of signs
around Jasper. I have
been making attempts to
read them without too
much distraction so I can
keep up with Jasper
events, etc.
Come and enter, come
and eat, all are invited,
according to Cindy at
Chamber of Commerce.
This is a Chili Cookoff
sponsored by the Hamil-
ton County Chamber of
Commerce. This sounds
good to me. You may
know I have been inter-
ested in our good cooks,
especially the barbecue
chefs, in a cookoff, so we
are looking forward to
this event (still hoping for
barbecue some day).
Hope the weather will be
a little cool, that always
helps for a good turnout
for chili. The event will be


from 10 a.m. until around
1 p.m., or however long
the chili lasts. See you at
the JRE Lee Complex on
Saturday, Feb. 24.
TFirst, a good meal is ex-
pected on this Friday,
Feb. 16, when the Hamil-
ton County Sheriff's De-
partment and the Crime
Stoppers are going to be
serving chicken and rice
dinners. They will be
serving just back of the
Sheriff's Department, be-
ginning at 11 a.m., and
hopefully serving until 2
p.m. We hear from the
weather reports that it
will be cold this weekend
so it will be great to have
some good chicken and
rice for lunch. They will
be glad to prepare and
serve it for you.
You can tell by my
columns that food is an
important part of my


schedule. It is wonderful
to have someone else's
cooking. You will see me
at each of these feasts,
and I appreciate what
others are doing. The
chicken and rice dinners
will benefit the Cancer
Society Relay for Life, so
we will be helping a great
cause.
Mrs. Ruth Vann recent-
ly had a visit with her sis-
ter Jerri Brooke. Jerri
came down from Indiana,
her daughter and her
husband, Tom and Deb-
bie Schuemann, came
from West Palm Beach to
pick up Jerri and take her
back home with them for
a few months this winter.
While here, Jerri also got
to visit with her sister,
Martha Mitchell, and
Ruth's children, John T.
and Janie Vann. The
Schuemanns attended
church with the Vanns.
Hope to hear from you
this week. In the mean-
time, have a very happy
Valentine's Day.

The month of February will be over half gone
when this article appears in The Jasper News.
Time moves on. This coming weekend, there
will be big "doings" over in Lake City with
the Olustee Festival.
There is a whole schedule of activities taking place in
and around Lake City. The Festival always features some
great regional foods, as well as arts and crafts in the
downtown .area on Friday and Saturday. Go and enjoy
the Olustee Festival.
Rev. Ron and "Miss" Jeannie Thompson enjoyed cruis-
ing the Caribbean this past-week. Rev. Ron Thompson is
pastor of First Baptist Church, White Springs. In his ab-
sence, Waylon Bush led the Sunday morning worship
service on Feb. 11. The evening service was led by David
Brantley, choir director. The choir presented a program of
music and song. Amanda Bullard accompanied them.
I attended Sunday morning worship service on Sunday,
Feb. 11, at White Springs United Methodist Church. The
Methodist Church in White Springs is my home away
from home. I sang two solos for them on Sunday morn-
ing accompanied by Beverly Davis. The church is busy
raising money for their Children's Home up until Easter
time. The lighted cross in the Fellowship Hall, construct-
ed by Don Davis, is very beautiful. The lights will be illu-
minated on the cross until all are illuminated, and the
church reaches its goal.
I found out on Sunday morning that former White
Springs residents Emory and Linda Heidt, who reside
near Deland, lost their home, as it was destroyed in the
recent Central Florida tornado. Our prayers are with
Emory and Linda. Their son, Wesley, graduated Valedic-
torian of South Hamilton and Hamilton County High
School. He is a graduate of the University of Florida Col-
lege of Law, and is currently a lawyer in Volusia County.
They reside at Port Orange. Our prayers are with them.
I took a "mental health" day on Friday and went down
to visit my good friends, Lee and Meredith Lewis of Fer-
nandina Beach. We shared a nice visit. I bought some
shrimp at Atlantic Seafood, and came home during the
late afternoon. A change of scene is good for one's mental
framework. In my case, time spent with good friends in a
beautiful setting did the trick. Lee and Meredith are en-
joying a delayed honeymoon this week in Telluride, Col.,
on the ski slopes. They were married on Dec. 29, at Cum-
berland Island, Ga.

Congratulations to Amber Robinson, daughter of Fred-
erick and Wadie Robinson, White Springs, on her recent
academic accomplishments at the University of Florida.
We are very proud of this young lady.
A phone call from longtime friend Doris Weaver, Mil-
ton, was most welcomed on Friday. We chatted for a
long while about this and that. One of Doris' grand-
daughters, Michelle Fountain, is about to embark upon a
two-year stint somewhere in Southeast Asia on the mis-
sion field with the Southern Baptist Association. She
graduated Magna Cum Laude with an undergraduate ac-
counting degree from the University of Central Florida.
She trained for eight weeks at the International Mission
Outreach Center in Richmond, Va. May God bless
Michelle and keep her in his care. She is the daughter Dr.
and Mrs. Jonathan (nee Beulah Weaver), Milton.
Congratulations to our newly invested County Judge -
the Honorable Kenneth "Sonny" Scaff Jr. I wish Sonny
much success in his role, as he serves the citizens of our
beloved Hamilton County.
Our sympathy is extended to the family of Weggie
Lawrence, Lake City. Weggie had many friends in the
White Springs area where he was well and favorably
known. The family has the prayers of our community.
It is always good sharing a visit with Michael and
Colvin Carter at the White Springs United Methodist
Church. They spend a lot of time at their hunting reserve
- Carter's Pasture on US 441 North in Columbia County.
In fact, they don't live too far from my house just across
the river. I am always glad to share a visit with them.

District 3-3A Tournament Game vs Florida
High (Tuesday, Feb. 6)
HCHS 72 FL HIGH 59
The Hamilton County High boys' varsity basketball
team played FSU High in the first round of the district
tournament in Perry, Tuesday Feb. 6. Florida High
came into the game as a dangerous club who, although
were seeded last in the district, had not lost by more
than 7 points in any of their district losses. The Trojans
knew they would be in for a battle.
HCHS came out strong to start the game, using defen-
sive pressure to score the first 7 points of the game. The
lead went up to 8 at halftime although the Trojans had
to fight through some early foul trouble.
The Seminoles didn't go away but, at the same time,
never got closer than 5 points from the Trojans. The
Trojans made 18 out of 23 free throws in the fourth
quarter to help seal the victory down the stretch, 72-59.
Hamilton had four players scoring in double figures,
led by sophomore Josh Jones' 22 points. Senior Eric
Jackson scored 12 points. Sophomore Ti'Wan Cooks
added 11 and freshman Vincent Bailey scored 10 points.
Other scorers included: junior Anthony Stevens (8);
freshman Evan Locke (5 all 5 on free throws in the fi-
nal few minutes of the game); and junior Malcolm Pol-
lock (4).
Bailey was the leading rebounder for the Trojans as
he had 9 boards on the night. Jones added 8 rebounds.
Cooks and Stevens had 7 rebounds each.
Other players with rebounds included: Jackson (5); ju-

Jones led the team in steals with 2. Cooks, Jackson,

It was a total team effort by Hamilton and the win
clinched a playoff spot for the Trojans as they prepared
for Saturday's district tournament championship
against the home team Taylor County Bulldogs and im-
proved their record to 19-7 overall.
District 3-3A Tournament
Championship vs Taylor (Saturday, Feb. 10)
HCHS 90 TAYLOR 81 (OT)
The HCHS Trojans traveled back to Perry for the dis-
trict championship game Saturday night. Hamilton had
very good fan support as many Trojan fans drove to
Perry to help cheer on the guys. They knew it would be
tough facing Taylor in their home gym.
Taylor made a statement early on that it was going to
be battle, taking an early lead. Josh Jones's putback
gave the Trojans their first lead at 6-5 and then took
their second lead of the game at 12-10 after a pretty
pass from Anthony Stevens to Vincent Bailey. However,
Taylor made two consecutive three-pointers (their 3rd
and 4th three-pointer in the quarter) giving the Bull-
dogs a 16-12 lead. Taylor would lead after the first
quarter.
Freshman Vincent Bailey had two strong dunks in the
half court, to make the score 26-21 Taylor. After a
Stevens' putback, Taylor County made their fifth three-
pointer of the half, giving them an 8 point lead. The
Trojans were able to keep it close, going into the half
trailing 41-35.
The Taylor Bulldogs outscored HCHS 11-4 to start the
second half, giving them a 13 point lead. After an Eric
Jackson three-pointer, Taylor scored 2 baskets in a row
to give the Bulldogs their biggest lead of the game, 56-

42. After the teams traded baskets, Josh Jones made a
three point shot, cutting the Taylor lead to 11.
However, the Bulldogs scored another basket to
stretch the lead to 13 again at 60-47 and that's when
things got interesting. Hamilton scored the next 15
points of the game, starting with a pretty pass from
Malcolm Pollock to Gareth Johnson for a layup. After
baskets by Ti'Wan Cooks and Josh Jones, Malcolm Pol-
lock made a critical three-pointer at the end of the third
quarter to cut the Bulldog lead to 4 at 60-56.
Cooks began the fourth quarter with a layup after a
rebound. Then, Jones passed to Gareth Johnson, who
made a layup to tie the game at 60. The fans were excit-
ed and rooted the Trojans on. Hamilton kept up the mo-
mentum with a Jones' jumper giving the Trojans their
first lead since the first quarter, 62-60.
At that point, the game went back and forth. Taylor
County's Marquis Ellis converted on an old-fashioned
three-point play giving the Bulldogs a momentary 1
point lead. However, the Trojans' Vincent Bailey con-
nected on two free throws to give Hamilton a 1 point
lead. The "yo-yo" game continued with alternating bas-
kets by Taylor's Ellis, Hamilton's Jones, Ellis again, and
then Jones scored again.
After Marquis Ellis made two free throws for Taylor,
the Bulldogs lead 69-68. Ti'Wan Cooks made two free
throws of his own for the Trojans but the lead was
short-lived as Taylor's Jabaree Williams made a baseline
jumper giving Taylor a 71-70 lead. Taylor would add to
the lead when Chad Ellis made a running jump shot,
making the score 73-70 Taylor County High.
HCHS scored the next 6 points as senior Eric Jackson
made a driving layup and consecutive assists to Josh
Jones. After Jones' second straight basket, the Trojans
had a 76-73 lead. After a Taylor basket, Anthony
Stevens grabbed a big offensive rebound after a missed
free throw, passed to Jones, who whipped it to Vincent
Bailey for the layup.and a 3 point Trojan lead. Unfortu-
nately, Taylor made 1 out of 2 free throws and then
scored on putback with about 10 seconds left in the
game, tying the game at 78.
After a questionable Trojan turnover, Taylor attempt-
ed a long three-point shot at the buzzer that was not
close and the game headed into overtime.
The Trojans scored the first nine points in the quarter
on a Bailey free throw, a Jones jumper, a Bailey putback
after a diving hustle play by Cooks, a Cooks' layup, and
two Bailey free throws. Taylor's Marquis Ellis sank a
three-pointer for the Bulldogs only points in overtime.
Josh Jones ended the scoring with three free throws,
making the final score: Hamilton 90 Taylor 81.
It was a total team win and the Trojans celebrated by
accepting the District Tournament Championship tro-
phy, handled first by Hamilton's two seniors and cap-
tains, Glenn Sheppard and Eric Jackson.
Hamilton was led by Josh Jones' 26 points, 9 re-
bounds, 8 assists and 4 steals. Vincent Bailey and An-
thony Stevens both recorded double-doubles. Bailey
had 23 points, 11 rebounds, 2 blocked shots, and 3 steals
while Stevens had 12 points and a team-high 13 re-
bounds. Eric Jackson scored 11 points to go along with 8
rebounds and 6 assists. Ti'Wan Cooks was the fifth Tro-
jan scoring in double figures with 11 points to go along
4 rebounds and 3 assists.
Gareth Johnson added 3 points and 2 rebounds and
Malcolm Pollock scored 3 points with 2 assists. Glenn
Sheppard and Jeremy Claridy each added a rebound for
the Trojans.
The Trojans improved their record to 20-7 and will
now advance to the Regional Quarterfinals where they
will play Jacksonville Episcopal at home Thursday, Feb.
15, at 7 p.m..
Come out and support the 3A-District 3 Champion

HCHS student's poem


selected for publication
A poem written by
Jonathan Fultz, a se-
nior at Hamilton
County High
School, has
been selected
for publication
in A Celebra-
tion of Young
Poets.
Only the
best poems
that were sub- :-'
mitted to Cre-
ative Commu- .
nication, Inc.,
are selected for '.
publication. Each
selected poem repre-
sents talent, hard work
and dedication on the part of Jonathan Fultz
the student and his or her
teacher.
A Celebration of Young Poets creates a record of
the fears, hopes and dreams of today's students, ac-
cording to Thomas Worthen, Editor. Without this
publication, the entries that reflect the unique in-
sight and perspective of the youth today would be
lost forever.
Jonathan is the son of Charles and Martha Fultz.


P re-K had so
much fun at
the Butterfly
Garden in
Gainesville! They walked
to the White Springs Li-
brary to hear Valentine's
Day stories and have
been busy making crafts.
Precious! The class col-
lected money for the Can-
dy Gram fundraiser,
"Pennies For Patients"; 88
candy grams were
bought.
Kindergarten is busy
learning and reviewing
skills for the Stanford 10
test. We have been work-


ing on telling time, count-
ing money and learning
more about letters. We
will continue learning

-. --143nd

64,',.. .Anniversary of


Florida's Largest

'i EI. Civil War Battle

in the Civil War, from the
woman who worked as a
Union spy in the home of the Con-
federate president to the life of au-
thor and statesman Frederick Dou-
glass, will be featured in living his-
tory demonstrations at the Battle of
Olustee Reenactment on Friday-Sun-
day, Feb. 16-18.
Reenactors portray the lives of
such African American heroines as
Elizabeth Keckley, a seamstress who
was a lifelong friend of Mary Todd
Lincoln, and Mary Elizabeth Bows-
er, who worked as a spy for federal
forces while working as a domestic
servant in the home. of Jefferson
Davis. Reenactors from the Daytona
Beach area attend the Olustee Reen-
actment to present the contributions
of both freed and enslaved blacks to
the Union cause during the Civil
War. The reenactors are organized by
Mary Fears, a retired educator,
whose son portrays Frederick Dou-
glass at the event. Other living histo-
ry presentations include Harriet Tub-
man, the most famous "conductor"

tee Battlefield Historic State Park to
present historically accurate portray-
als of the war's toll on both civilian


and military life. Medical
demonstrations are planned

and Sunday. Period music
concerts, military camps
and drills, and the lives
of both soldiers and
. civilians during the
war are portrayed
by reenactors. The
living history week-
end features a Civil

the Battle of Olustee on Sunday. Sat-
urday's battle begins at 3:30 p.m.

on Feb. 20, 1864. Full-scale artillery,
mounted cavalry, and three African
American regiments, including the
54th Massachusetts took part in the
fighting that day. The Battle of Olus-
tee was Florida's largest Civil War

8 million multi-state settlement made with Bayer Company


TALLAHASSEE Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum
today announced that Florida and
29 additional states have reached an $8
million settlement with Bayer Corpora-
tion, resolving an investigation into the
marketing of a drug to lower cholesterol.
The settlement was part of a consumer
protection enforcement action initiated
over concerns that Bayer failed to ade-
quately disclose safety risks associated
with Baycol.
In May 1998, Bayer began marketing
Baycol, a type of cholesterol-lowering
drug known as a station. Statins carry a
known risk of myopathy, a weakening of
the muscles, as well as a more serious
muscular
disease. Through post-marketing stud-
ies of its product, Bayer learned that the
risk associated with Baycol was signifi-
cantly higher compared to other stations,
particularly at higher doses and when
combined with another particular choles-
terol-lowering drug. Baycol was with-
drawn from theprescription drug market
in August 2001. ,,
The investigation, initiated by the
states in 2004, alleged that while Bayer
informed the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration about these adverse effects,
the company failed to adequately warn
consumers.


"Manufacturers shouldn't be allowed
to hide medical information that doctors
rely on to prescribe the correct medicine
for their patients," McCollum said. "This
could potentially harm our citizens and
their safety is our priority."
Today's settlement requires Bayer to
pay a total of $8 million to the 30 partic-
ipating states. Florida's share of the set-
tlement funds is $200,000 and will reim-
burse taxpayers for the cost of the state's
investigation. The company must also
register most of its clinical studies and
then post the results at the end of each
study. Bayer is requited to fully comply
with the state laws regulating the mar-
keting, sale and
promotion of its pharmaceutical and
biological products. The company is fur-
ther prohibited from making false and
misleading claims relating to any such
product sold in.the United States. The
settlement, filed today in Broward Coun-
ty in the form of a consent judgment, is
awaiting approval from a circuit judge.
In addition to Florida, participating
states include Arizona, Arkansas, Cali-
fornia, Connecticut, Delaware, Kansas,
Kentucky, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan,
Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, North
Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania,
South Carolina, South Dakota, Ten-


nessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Wash-
ington and Wisconsin.

various Dr. Seuss stories

lieve," a dramatic and
highly visual new Shamu
show at SeaWorld Orlan-
do.

Orlando is packed with
annual festivals and spe-
cial events perfect for
families. From April 14-
21, Kidzpalooza at Cy-
press Gardens Adventure

How to avoid risk of hip fractures


from heartburn drugs


Though heartburn medications have long been friends to fans of food, recent studies have shown that the very
medications heartburn sufferers rely on could be doing significant, far-reaching damag.e.
In a recent study conducted in Great Britain, some of the more popular heartburn drugs, including Nexium and
Prilosec, were shown to enhance the risk of a broken hip in people over the age of 50 'who took the drugs for a year or
more. According to researchers, while the drugs are busy reducing acid in the stomach, they're simultaneously making
it more difficult for the body to absorb bone-building calcium, thereby increasing the risk for a broken hip.
For aging heartburn medication users, those findings are especially troubling, as statistics show that 20 percent of
senior citizens who suffer a hip fracture die within one year. For women,'who already face heightened chances of
osteoporosis, the study is an even greater cause for concern.
While the statistics can be frightening, there are steps men and women can take to both combat digestive problems
while not risking bone health in the process, says Dr. Michael Pinkus, who is an expert in alternative healthcare. He has
been a guest on over 500 radio and television shows, authored several books, and h:as worked with top athletes.
"We really do not have a true healthcare system in place in this country. We have; a sickness care system," says Dr.
Pinkus.
He feels that prescription medications may only treat the symptoms and not the cause of digestive problems. The best
approach to finding relief from digestive problems while not sacrificing bone heal' th just may be a two-pronged attack,
and supplementing with products that he has developed.
The first step gets at the root of digestive problems, which are often the result 6 fan enzyme imbalance. Enzymes are
necessary to break down fats, proteins, sugars, carbohydrates, fibers, starches and lactose into small particles that can
be digested and absorbed. When enzymes do not work effectively or are in short supply the result is often digestive
problems.
To combat enzyme ineffectiveness or deficiency, boosting the natural enzymes. in the digestive system is a good
course of action. Nu-ZymesTM is a dietary supplement that is taken before, after or between meals. Each all-natural
capsule is fortified with a unique blend of maylase, protease, lactase, lipase, cellhalase, acidophilus and CereCelaseTM,
a special blend of three enzymes. These plant- and fungi-derived enzymes perform specific functions to help the
digestive system work properly.
The second part of both solving digestive problems while not sacrificing bon, health is to heed the advice of the U.S.
Surgeon General. In his annual report on Bone Health and Osteoporosis, the Su. :geon General advised the use of
calcium supplements for individuals with calcium deficiency. Because women a ire naturally at a higher risk for
osteoporosis than men, heeding that advice takes on an even greater importance as both adequate calcium and vitamin
D are now known to be major contributors to bone health.
While most individuals naturally produce enough vitamin D, the same cannot t be said for calcium, hence the need to
calcium supplements. One such supplement is CalMaxTM, which includes hospital grade calcium gluconate,
magnesium and vitamin C, but does not provide your body with unnecessary extra amounts of vitamin D. The presence
of vitamin C helps to create an acidic environment, which allows your body to fully absorb calcium. In so doing,
CalMax is confirming what trials have continued to show, that natural levels of vitamin D when combined with
calcium supplementation both reduce bone loss and risk of fractures..


"Health is a whole other way of operating," says Dr. Pinkus. "It includes maodmizing your energy, longevity and
your ability to live life without pain or dysfunction. .... ....... ... ..

AREA VET ADVOCATES HONOR THEM: A number of people in North Florida are from time to time involved in area parades to honor veterans. Dur-
ing the parade those horsemen and women lead horses appropriately dressed out in the parade in memory of or in honor of selected veterans.
Pictured I to r, just prior to a parade in Lake City, are Mrs. Scott Lassiter leading Ace in memory of Sgt. Ricky Lord of Wilcox who was killed in
Iraq; Scott Lassiter honoring the late Lassie Borders of Branford with Casanova; Bruce Borders leading No Surrender in memory of Mike Suggs,
a Vietnam veteran of Branford; and an unidentified man whose horse was led in memory of Calvin Howard, a WWII veteran of Branford. The late
Nick Bonovino, former Jasper Police Chief, was also among those remembered. Photo: Submitted


IRS Announces


Long-Distance


Excise Tax Refund
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is of-
fering a one-time refund to all telephone
customers who paid excise tax on long-dis-
tance service after Feb. 28. 2003, and be-
fore Aug. 1, 2006. The refund is the result
of recent federal court rulings that the 3-
percent tax is no longer applicable to long-
distance service as it is billed today.
Individuals can request the refund on
their regular tax returns. If they don't have
to file a tax return, they can use a newly
created form to request their refunds. In ad-
dition, the IRS is providing a fast and sim-
ple option for any long-distance customer
by offering a standard refund amount, be-
tween $30 and $60, based on the number of
exemptions they claim. Refunds can be re-
quested using Forms 1040, 1040A, 1040 EZ
or 1040 NR. or by using new Form
1040EZ-T. These forms can be downloaded
at IRS.gov or can be obtained by calling 1-
800-TAX-FORM.
Long-distance telephone customers for
whom it is mote advantageous to request a
refund using the actual amount of tax paid
may do so by filling out Form 8913 and at-
taching it to their tax returns or Form
1040EZ-Ts. Many post offices and local li-
braries will also have these forms available.
For additional information about the tele-
phone excise tax refund, including Form
1040 EZ-T. ,isit IRS gov

Dear Classified Guys,
In the past four years, I've had two
cars and six accidents. The first car,
a light brown sedan, was hit in the
passenger and driver's side twice.
After the fourth accident I bought a
white Volkswagen that was rear-
ended the first week I owned it. Then
last week I was in a car accident that
practically totaled the front passen-
ger side. My sister tries to tell me it's
my driving, but I'm convinced that it's
the lousy car colors that make the
difference. Maybe I need something
brighter so people can see me com-
ing. My sister drives a red sports car
and has never been in an accident
yet. She's not a great driver. So now
I'm shopping the classified
ads for yet another car. .
Can you tell me the best '----- )
color to get? Then maybe I -
can prove to my sister that car -
color does make a difference. 3.*L-
Cash: After six accidents, your
insurance agent must be on speed dial.
Carry: You may need more than a
bright colored car. Maybe you need
some flashing lights to go with it.
Cash: Regardless of your next car
color, try taking a defensive driving
course. With so many accidents, you


CINSIRED

GUYS

could certainly use the discount on your
car insurance.
Carry: As for the color, it might seem
that a brighter car would be easier to see
on the road. Dark colored cars tend to
blend into the background and white
may be hard to see on snowy days.
Cash: However despite numerous
studies, there is no solid conclusion on
how car color affects accidents. Since
there are so many variables such as
weather conditions, surrounding land-
scape and even experience of the driv-
er, it's difficult to relate color to
accidents.
Carry: It seems you'll have to prove
.your sister wrong in other ways. If you


think that color may affect your driv-
ing, then by all means, choose a color
that makes you feel safer. Anything
that may give you more confidence
behind the wheel could help you in the
future.
Cash: Also, if you're worried about
people seeing your car, remember to
drive withfyour headlights on. Even
during daylight hours, turning on your
lights can help other cars notice you on
the road. However, there's nothing that
can substitute for driving defensively to
avoid an accident.
Carry: And who knows, with a little
luck you won't have to talk to your
insurance agent anytime soon.


Big Yellow Bus
In 1939, the National Conference on
School Transportation was first formed
to decide on standards for transporting
children. It was there the group decid-
ed on the color for buses that is now
known as "National Glossy School Bus
'Yellow". The color formula is actually
on file with the National Bureau of
Standards. Despite the organization's
efforts to standardize school buses, it
wasn't nationally completed until 1974
when Minnesota finally adopted the
color, switching from Minnesota
Golden Orange.
Favorite Color
Sometimes the hardest decision about
buying a car isn't the make or model,
but the color. According to the 2006
Dupont Color Popularity Report, the
top selling car color for the sixth year in
a row is silver, accounting for 19% of
all cars sold in North America. It is fol-
lowed closely by white, gray and black.
Together these four colors account for
over 60% of the car market.

Being Defensive
I was so nervous when my daughter
turned 16. Not only was she starting
to date, but now she was getting her
driver's license.
Before I would allow her to drive on
her own, I insisted she take a defensive
driving course. I told her she had to
learn some techniques from a profes-
sional.
Like any teenager, she rolled her
eyes and complained the whole way to
the course. As we both sat in the class-
room waiting for the instructor, I again
tried to explain, "This guy is going to
show us how to be better drivers."
My comment fell on deaf ears when
the instructor entered, "Sorry I'm late,
but believe it or not, I was just in a car
accident!"

A winning party for spring sports fans


(Family Features) The
sports world is about to seize
spring once again. With
baseball teams in spring
training, cars firing up their
engines and hoops teams
working on their strategies
for the tourney, sports-lovin'
hosts are busy with their
sports party plans.
Sports parties are fun and
can be a breeze to pull off.
The on-screen action
provides the entertainment,
you simply provide the venue
and festive finger foods to
munch. So pick the event
date and invite your friends
over for some rousing fun
and good food.
If this is your first indoor
tailgating party, evaluate your
event-watching space. Be
sure there's a place to sit -
even if it's just a floor pillow
and a view of the screen
for everyone. You may have
more than one TV in the
house, but team spirit runs
highest when everyone is in
the same room.
Some hosts like to make
their parties an annual event.
To keep food for such a party
fresh and inviting, do what
top caterers do add a
fabulous new food to the
selection you've served in
past years. Keep some old
favorites like pizza and
nachos, while adding in some
new selections.
Consider serving up Jerk
Pork Sandwiches from exotic
Jamaica as a new addition.
The recipe calls for lively
jerk seasoning (a blend of
ground chiles, black pepper,
onions, garlic, thyme,
cinnamon and ginger) added
to shredded fully cooked pork
ro.it Jerk seasoning is
available at many
supermarkets.
Give your party tray an
Italian flair by serving an
olive, artichoke and sweet
pepper antipasto alongside
the meats and cheeses. It's a
nto-cook cinch! Place the
prepared party tray on the
able, then toss together the
bottled ingredients using the
recipe found at hormel.com.
Pizza is a party favorite
because the prep is so simple.
Use a refrigerated crust,
canned pizza sauce and your
choice of turkey pepperoni or
original pepperoni. It's so


good, you'll want to have an
extra crust on hand for a
second batch. For warp-
speed nachos, use canned
chili and spike it with
jalapefio peppers. Keep the
pizza and nachos warm on an
electric hot tray.
Be sure to stock plenty of



!


your favorite beverages, cold
and hot, as throats can get
parched from the enthusiastic
"commentary" reacting to the
on-screen action.
Dessert can be'a nod to the
event locale: Georgia
peanuts, Florida oranges,
Hawaiian pineapples, Indiana


sugar cream pie. Have fun
with it. You can find the
above and other great sports
celebration recipes at
hormel.com.

(Family Features) Have
you been searching for
fresh ideas and new ways
to show your partner just
how much you care? The
intense red of radicchio is
a brilliant choice for a
romantic salad for a
special dinner for two.
Just as in romance, this
salad mixes the bitter with
the sweet. The intense
flavor of radicchio is
partnered with baby
spinach, luscious fresh
pear slices and
caramelized pecans.
Gorgonzola cheese
balances radicchio's bite.
For a winter salad, a
fresh green or red Anjou
pear is a delicious choice.
The highly aromatic and
flavorful Bosc pear is also
available throughout the
winter months.
A staple on
Mediterranean and
European tables, a recently
published report reveals
that radicchio provides an
antioxidant content
rivaling that of blueberries
and spinach. With a
powerful flavor and color
profile, radicchio has taken
the American salad scene
by storm in the last ten
years, appearing
everywhere from
McDonald's to fine dining
restaurants.
Consumers can find
fresh Royal Rose radicchio
year-round because EVS
Farms is the only grower
in the world to harvest
fresh radicchio daily.
Based in the fertile Salinas
Valley, this grower
partners with growers in
southern Arizona and
Florida in order to deliver

fresher, bigger and better
radicchio to supermarkets
and produce markets
nationwide.
Royal Rose radicchio is
fresher because it is field-
packed and shipped
directly to distributors and
retailers. Foreign grown
radicchio often spends up
to four weeks in route to
local American distributors
and retailers. Because
domestically grown
radicchio spends less time
being shipped, the outer
layers stay firm, full and
healthy. A good, fresh head
of radicchio should weigh
at least half a pound, but if


radicchio is shipped from a
foreign location, it loses its
original size when it is
trimmed down to remove
the limp and wilted layers.

Radicchio, Spinach &
Pear Salad with
Gorgonzola and
Caramelized Pecans
8 servings

1 head Royal Rose
radicchio, cored
and chopped
1 10-oz. bag fresh
spinach leaves, chopped
3 ripe pears, cored and
sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly


sliced
3 tablespoons balsamic
vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 ounces crumbled
Gorgonzola
1/2 cup caramelized
pecans*

In small saucepan, heat
vinegar and oil gently over
medium heat until hot;
immediately pour dressing
over salad and toss until
evenly dressed. Season
with salt and pepper and
serve at once.

Caramelized Pecans:


1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 cup pecan halves,
lightly toasted*

Lightly grease a rimmed
cookie sheet. Set aside. In
a small saucepan bring
sugar and water to a boil.
Increase heat to medium-
high and cook syrup
without stirring until
mixture turns golden,
about 10 minutes. Remove
from heat. Stir in pecans,
then spread pecans in a
single layer on prepared
sheet. Let stand until cool,
then break into small
pieces. Makes 1 cup. Store

Northwest's

late muzzleloader

season has

new rules for

private lands
Sportsmen hunting on pri-
vate lands will notice some
changes this year to the season
that immediately follows the
general gun season ,in the
Northwest Hunting Zone.
What used to be called the
special archery/muzzleloading
gun season on private lands is
now part of that zone's muzzle-
loading gun season. Rules and
regulations for muzzleloading
season now apply to this sea-
son, which runs Feb. 15-25, but
only in the Northwest Hunting
Zone. Hunters need a $5 muz-
zleloading gun permit to hunt
during this period, when they
may use muzzleloaders, bows
or crossbows (new this year).
On wildlife management ar-
eas (WMAs) in the Northwest
Zone, this late season is still re-
ferred to as archery/muzzle-
loading gun season, with the
same rules applying as last
year. More than, half of the
Northwest Zone's WMAs offer
this opportunity, when hunters
can use bows or muzzleload-
ers, but no crossbows-unless
they possess a disabled person
crossbow permit. Along with a
hunting license and manage-
ment area permit, hunters who
choose to use a bow during this
period must have a $5 archery
permit. Those using a muzzle-
loader are required to have a $5
muzzleloading gun permit.
The most common game to
hunt during this season are deer
and wild hogs. Unless hunters
possess an antlerless deer per-
mit, only bucks may be taken,
and one antler must be at least
5 inches in length above the
hairline. On private lands, the
daily bag limit on deer is two.
Bag limits and antler size for
deer on WMAs can differ, and
hunters should consult the
WMA brochure before they
hunt.
There is no bag or size limits
on wild hogs when hunting pri-
vate lands and most WMAs.
On a few WMAs, specific bag
and size limits do apply when
hunting them, and hunters
should consult the WMA
brochure to be sure.
On private lands and
WMAs, hunters may not use
dogs to pursue deer or wild
hogs during this period and
may not take turkeys during
this season.

How to proactively manage your asthma


Many women with asthma be-
come overwhelmed by it and let it
control the way they live their
lives. Dr. Monica Kraft, Director of
Duke University's Allergy, Asthma
and Airway Center, who will be
featured in an upcoming television
special entitled "Breathing Easy:
Women and Asthma" talks about
effective ways in which women
with asthma can accomplish goals
and live the life they want.
"One of my patients decided that
she wanted to start running at the
age of 48, but after a quarter mile
she was wheezing and coughing,"
says Dr. Kraft. "Together we
worked on ways to enable her to
run. She now has a goal of com-
pleting a 10 k running race."
In the show Dr. Kraft advises that
if you have asthma, it's important
to put yourself first and not let asth-
ma control your life. You have to
find the right doctor with whom
you can build a long-term relation-
ship because on-going follow up is
the key to managing your asthma.
Then you have to describe your
symptoms and how often you are
using your fast-acting inhaler. Tell
your doctor how these symptoms
keep you from doing what you
want or need to do.


Your doctor can help you set
goals- whether it's running or gar-
dening without getting out of
breath- and let you know that such
goals do not have to be out of
reach. You must learn to recognize
your symptoms and their triggers.
There are many ways that you
can help control your asthma. The
most important step is talking to
your doctor about ways to manage
asthma. If you believe your asthma
is starting to control your life, Dr.
Kraft offers the following tips on
how to help your doctor best serve
you:
Find out what you can about
asthma so you can identify the
symptoms and how it might be af-
fecting your life. There are many
great informational tools out there
including websites like www.asth-
maawarenessedu.com or the televi-
sion show "Breathing Easy:
Women and Asthma" that can help
women identify goals and find
ways to talk to their doctors about
asthma management.
Think about your rescue inhaler
use- do you use it more than twice
a week? Do you use it at particular
times?
Try to identify the specific envi-
ronments or situations that trigger


symptoms such as shortness of
breath, chest-tightening, lung burn-
ing, wheezing and coughing.
Identify what you feel if and/or
when you wake up at night
Identify what you feel when
you first wake up in the morning.
What medications have you
taken in the past that are or aren't
related to asthma?
What medications are you cur-
rently taking?
With the right tools and medica-
tions and the knowledge of how
and when to use those tools, you
can control your asthma.

video, audio, and blogging tools

alink.com/webnr. aspx?Sto-
ry=32954
Did You Know?
By becoming educated and
aware of what triggers their asthma
in conjunction with developing a
good relationship with their physi-
cian women can be in a position to
proactively manage their illness.
"Knowing how and when to use
the right tools and medications can
help women control their asthma,"
says Dr. Monica Kraft of Duke
University's Allergy, Asthma and
Airway Center.


FWC announces annual manatee

synoptic survey numbers


In the annual manatee synoptic
survey conducted Jan. 30-Feb. 1.
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) reported a preliminary
count of 2,812 manatees
statewide.
A team of 16 observers (14 by
air and two on the ground) from
eight organizations counted 1,412
on Florida's Atlantic Coast and
1,400 on the state's Gulf Coast.
A synoptic survey is a simulta-
neous count of manatees over a
broad area. The survey results are
not used directly to evaluate the
status of the manatee population.
Although the survey results are
not an estimate of population size.
this survey provides researchers
with a minimum number of man-
atees m Florida waters at the time
of the count. In addition, the sur-
veys provide a snapshot of mana-
tee distribution around the state.
State law requires an annual
count, weather permitting, of
manatees in Florida waters. The
synoptic survey meets this re-
quirement. The best conditions
for the synoptic survey occur dur-


ing the winter. FWC follows a
prescription for fa% orable weather
conditions for manatee survey s as
weather and manatee behavior af-
fect synoptic survey counts. This
year, warm winter conditions and
changing weather over the course
of the survey influenced the re-
sulting count
"Detenorating weather condi-
tions posed a challenge to ob-
ser\ers However, despite the
weather, we counted record num-
bers of manatees in Tampa Bay,
Blue Spring and Brevard Coun-
t,." said Dr. Holly Edwards, the
FWC biologist in charge of the
annual count.
Researchers at FWC's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute are de-
veloping new survey methods that
would make future aerial surveys
more accurate and less dependent
on weather conditions.
For more information about
manatees and synoptic surveys,

manatee. call toll-free, 888-404-
