THE JASPER NEWS. Jasper. FL


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2007


Hamilton


crew arrived at CHE on
Thursday, Feb. 15, to shoot
a segment for an upcoming
feature on the Today Show
about how Hamilton
County is using TutorVista
to help their students. The
date of the show will be
announced later.
The filming included a
presentation by Superin-
tendent of Schools Harry
Pennington and John Stup-
py, president of Tu-
torVista. The group also
visited the computer lab,
Autumn's class (teacher
Rachel Haynes) and anoth-
er fourth grade class
(teacher Charles Claridy).
Marjorie Cooks, CHE
Principal, said the visitors
were very impressed with
the school.
"We are decorated for the
FCAT and they liked that,"
Cooks said. "Mr. Stuppy
knows the FCAT standards
and that's a plus. I think
Central has the most stu-
dents participating at this
time, but more students
should take advantage of it
(TutorVista).".
Sanders said that the
teachers and staff at CHE
were very friendly and
open.


"The teachers are sold on
the concept (of TutorVista)
but they think the proof's
in pudding," Sanders said.
"They think it will help but
they don't know. They like
the fact the tutors are
trained, so they know it
won't hurt."
That afternoon Sanders
and the crew joined Au-
tumn during her tutoring
session and talked to
Joseph in India. Then they
filmed Autumn as she
worked the lessons Joseph
gave her.
When Autumn logs into
the program at her sched-
uled time (5 p.m. here, 4:30
a.m. the next morning in
India) Joseph greets her
and asks her about her
day. They communicate
verbally with microphones
and headphones. They can
also chat (instant message)
to each other or write on a
virtual whiteboard that
both can see.
Joseph gives Autumn as-
signments to work on the
whiteboard, such as multi-
plication problems. Joseph
tells Autumn if the prob-
lem is correct or not. If Au-
tumn needs help, Joseph
works with her to complete

guided hike along the
Suwannee River through
Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park at 1
p.m.
Hikers can set up a base
camp or plan a recreation
stop at Gateway Commu-
nities. They can enjoy a
hot meal in a restaurant,
buy supplies in a selection
of stores, or wash their
clothes at a Laundromat.
For those who are tired of
roughing it, hotels and
bed and breakfasts offer
co6ifortable beds and hot
showers.
White Springs, a focal
point in Florida folk cul-
ture, has been a destina-


tion for Florida Trail hik-
ers for nearly 40 years.
Both the Florida Trail and
the Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail pass
through the town. The
Suwannee Bicycle Associ-
ation has an expanded
network of trails in the
area. Hikers stop at Amer-
ican Canoe Adventures to
sign the trail register and
to pose for a Polaroid pic-
ture that is posted on the
wall.

Florida Trail Association,,

gram Director, FIA, at 877-

the problem correctly.
Autumn's mother, Sheila
Cole, said that in the begin-
ning Autumn did not want
to work with a tutor. Now
she is eager to log on and
learn more about math and
reading.
Sanders said that other
counties can afford tutors
after school hours, but
Hamilton County is "not
flush with money." There
are also transportation is-
sues no after school bus-
ing is available and many
of the parents work, so the
children have no way to
get home.
"We are focusing on how
the county is using this
unique way to meet the
goals of the No Child Left
Behind Act," Sanders said.

-Is-..


Some people might think
that a child from the South
United States and a woman
from India might have
trouble understanding each
other. But Autumn and
Joseph communicate very
well. The tutors are trained
to speak in a neutral accent
so that students anywhere
in the world can under-

stand them. If they do have
a problem with oral com-
munication, then they can
chat to each other.
Joseph said she likes
American students because
they are smart and keen to
learn. She added that they
have a wealth of communi-
cation skills and are com-
puter savvy.
Mitchell said the pro-
gram is available free to all

Currently the division is
responsible for inspecting
over 14,000 state buildings
.with only 37 fire inspec-
tors.
The Florida Fire Preven-
tion Code is applicable to
all buildings and structures
that are open to the public,
as well as some other non-
public occupancies, such as
office buildings and high-
rise structures, according to
Banister. The Code applies
to government and private-
ly owned buildings. Office
buildings, banks, grocery
stores, specialty shops and
other buildings will need
to be inspected.
At this time the County
nor the municipalities have


a fire safety inspector.
There will be a series of
workshops to determine
how the County and mu-
nicipalities will comply
with the Fire Prevention
code.
The first meeting will be
held at 1 p.m. on Thursday,
March 1, in the Courthouse
Annex located at 1153 US
41 NW in Jasper. Gabe
Mazzeo, Supervisor, In-
spections and Investiga-
tions, Bureau of Fire Pre-
vention, and John Holley
from the State Fire Mar-
shal's office will discuss the
statutes and rules regard-
ing the fire safety inspec-
tions.

students of the Hamilton
County School District,
who have a computer and
Internet access. At this time
the school computer labs
are being used for other
programs. If the District is
allowed to keep the tutor-
ing service past the end of
this year, he said the Dis-


trict might be able to pro-
vide computer access after
school if the funding be-
comes available.
Anyone who is interested
in enrolling their child in
the TutorVista program
should contact the guid-

with the assistance of the
Hamilton County Sheriffs
Office, since the Council
voted to suspend former
Police Chief Subic on Feb.
6., because he .is being in-
vestigated by the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE). Subic
then turned in a letter of
retirement on Feb. 13.
Town Manager Robert
Townsend pointed out that
Officer Capallia deserves
some type of remuneration
because she has assumed
enormous responsibility
and liability. He noted the
money for the increase in
her salary would come
from the budgeted amount
for the police chief's salary.
Officer Capallia assured
the Council and the audi-
ence she was open to di-
rection fronT all concerned
parties as to how to best
serve the community and
its law enforcement needs..
"It is my intention as; ap-:
pointed Officer-In-Charge
of the White Springs Police
Department to maintain a
positive relationship with


the community while pro-
viding a seamless transi-
tion of police administra-
tion and law enforcement
services to the citizens of
White Springs," she said.
The council also voted
unanimously to accept
Subic's letter of retirement.
Robert Dezendorf, a for-
mer council member,
asked if Subic would be
entitled to the money in.
his retirement fund if he
was found guilty of crimi-
nal charges. Townsend ex-
plained that the town
matched an employee's
contributions for the retire-
ment fund and an employ-
ee could withdraw the
money at any time. Town
Attorney Todd Kennon
said he did not know the
rules governing the retire-
ment fund and he would
have to research the issue.
The Council did not ad-
dress the issue of hiring
another Chief of Police.
Heather Smflith, FDLE
, Public Relations, said there
is no new information to
be released at this time, al-
though the investigation is
still active.

LEGAL NOTICE

Additional Homestead for Senior Citizens

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

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

constitution authorizing the state legislature to pass a law allowing counties and
municipalities to grant an additional homestead exemption of up to $25,000 to
persons at least 65 years of age and whose total household income does not
exceed $22,693. (This could change for 2007)
This additional homestead does not apply to all ad valorem taxes. A county
or municipality must enact an ordinance that sets the amount of an exemption,
not to exceed $25,000, and may specify whether or not the additional
exemption applies to all tax levies including dependent special districts and
municipal service taxing units.
Proof of age and income documentation is required. Income documentation
is required for everyone living in the household. The Hamilton County Property
Appraiser will start taking applications on January 2, 2007. Our office is located

Varsity boys basketball team moves to semifinals


The Hamilton County
High School varsity boy's
basketball team took on the
Jacksonville Episcopal Ea-
gles in the regional quarter-
finals in Jasper on Thurs-
day, Feb. 15. Episcopal
came into the game with an
overall 18-6 record and was
runner up in District 4-3A
to Ribault High. The Eagles
featured "twin tower" big
guys with heights of 6'9"
and 6'7" and a very patient
offense that can cause de-
fenses fits. Hamilton en-
tered the game with an
overall 20-7 record and
came in as the District 3-3A
Champs. The style and size
of the Eagles would pre-
sent a tough challenge to
the Trojans.
Episcopal came out
strong, scoring the first
four points in the game but
Hamilton was able to get
back into the game quickly
with baskets by sophomore
Josh Jones and freshman
Vincent Bailey. The first
quarter ended with Hamil-
ton leading 11-10 in a close
one.
In Hamilton's first pos-
session of the second quar-
ter, Jones dribbled baseline,
drew the defenders to him,


and passed off to Bailey for
a thunderous dunk, which
greatly pleased the home
crowd. After a defensive
stop, Jones' sunk a three-
pointer, giving the Trojans
their biggest lead of the
game at six, 16-10. The
game would go back and
forth for the rest of the half,
ending with a 24-20 half
time lead for HCHS.
The third quarter was
close throughout and, after
a three-pointer by Episco-
pal, the Trojan lead was cut
to one point. HCHS hung
onto a one-point lead while
Episcopal had possession
of the ball with a chance to
take the lead to end the
quarter. However, junior
Jeremy Claridy made a big
steal, passed to Bailey, who
passed ahead to Jones for a
lay up and a three-point
lead to end the quarter..
With four minutes re-
maining in the game and
the Trojans still clinging to
a three-point lead, junior
Anthony Stevens found
sophomore Ti'Wan Cooks
underneath the basket for a
layup and a 40-35 HCHS
lead. After Episcopal's
Davis scored and the Tro-
jans failed to score, the Ea-


gles had the ball with a
chance to either tie the
game or close the Trojan
lead to a point. However,
Jones made a steal and lay
up with 3:20 left to give
HCHS a 42-37 lead.
With three minutes re-
maining in the game,
Stevens was called for a
foul, his fifth and final foul
of the night, and junior
Gareth Johnson was called
on to replace Stevens. After
Davis made a free throw,
Johnson made a nice pass
to Cooks for a basket and a
44-38 1 lead. The Eagles
came right back and scored
the next four points, cut-
ting the HCHS lead to 44-
42 with two minutes left in
the game.
After a Trojan timeout,
Bailey passed to Jones for a
basket, making the score
46-42 Hamilton with -1:45
remaining. Episcopal came
right back to score and cut
the lead to two when Jones
was called for a charging
foul, giving the Eagles pos-
session of the ball with a
chance to tie or take the
lead;
As they had done for
most of the night, Episco-
pal attempted to get the


ball down low. This time,
however, the pass was de-
flected by Johnson on a
nice hustle play and stolen
by senior Eric Jackson in
the corner with 44 seconds
left. After a missed free
throw on a one-and-one
opportunity, Episcopal
again had the ball with a
chance to tie or take the
lead. Bailey blocked the Ea-
gles' first attempt to tie the
game. The block sent the
ball out of bounds and the
Eagles maintained posses-
sion with 36 seconds left.
Again, Episcopal tried to
force the ball inside and
this time it was Jones who
made a big deflection, bat-
ting the ball away into the
hands of Jackson again. Af-
ter a Jones free throw gave
the Trojans a 47-44 lead, the
Eagles attempted a three-
pointer to try to tie' the
game but it was no good
and Jones gathered the re-
bound. Jones would then
seal the victory with a free
throw and the final point of
the game. Final score was
Hamilton 48-Episcopal 44.
The win improved
Hamilton's overall record
to 21-7 and advanced the
Trojans to the Regional


Semifinal Round with only
16 teams remaining in the
state. It was a great win for
the Trojans and head coach
Patrick Murphy was ex-
tremely proud of the


team's effort.
Hamilton hosted Chipley
High School Tuesday, Feb.
20, at 7 p.m. Please come
out and support the Tro-
jans!

PAI 2R THE JAPE NES Jar FL THRDY FERAY2,20


At this writing, "old man
winter" is still visiting us
here on the banks of the
Suwannee River.
We can expect cold
weather right up until East-
er time and this year, Easter
falls on April 8. Even with
what we consider cold
times, we can't complain
about our weather. We are
not upper state New York
digging out from several
feet of ice and cold. The
smart people from up there'
are the ones living down
here. I am very thankful to
live right here in the Sun-
shine State and in our
beloved Hamilton County.
Did you know that
Hamilton County is the
only county in the state of
Florida not joined to the
state of Florida by land? We
are surrounded on three
sides by rivers, and we are
joined to Georgia by land.
Many years ago, a writer
from the Miami Herald
wrote an article about our
part of the world and re-
ferred to Hamilton as being
part of "Florgia" a combina-
tion of Florida and Georgia.
That was his "tale," and I'll
sit on mine. I am a Floridian
today, tomorrow, always.
Congratulations to our
Hamilton County High
School Trojan boys basket-
ball team. They've enjoyed
an outstanding season, and
we wish them all the best
and continued success! Go
Trojans!
Jeanie Fitchen, renowned
folk singer / songwriter, per-
formed at the Telford Hotel
on Saturday, Feb. 17, and
did a superb job. Jeanie is a
former Florida Folk Her-
itage Award winner and
performs each year at the
annual Folk Festival. It is al-
ways good to share a visit
with Jeanie and her hus-
band, Ned.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the families of Jimmy
Odom and Horace Scarbor-
ough, Lake City. The fami-
lies have the prayers of our


White Springs community.
Don't forget to mark your
calendars for the weekend
of March 17, as White
Springs will celebrate its
seventh annual Wild Azalea
Festival. To enter a young
lady in the Miss Wild Aza-
lea Festival Contest contact
Mary Lou Bullard at 307-
2205, and she will be glad to
assist you. There will be re-
gional foods, arts, crafts and
great music. Come on down
and celebrate the blooming
of the Wild Azaleas "Way
Down upon the Suwannee
River."
Happy belated birthday
wishes to one of my best
friends, Sue Burkett. I wish
Sue many more happy
birthdays.
Mary Lou Bullard shared
a visit with Sister Ruby
Martin, Branford, on Valen-
tine's Day. The ladies had a
great time having lunch and
visiting. Sister Martin was a
part of our White Springs
community here for years
and years.
The men of First Baptist
Church, White Springs, are
hosting a Men's Day Ex-
travaganza at the PCS Con-
ference Center on Saturday,
March 3. For more informa-
tion contact Jerry Bullard at

wonderful event.
The Hamilton County De-
mocratic Party is hosting a

March 1. Tickets are on sale
for $25 per plate. The speak-
er will be the chairman of

ty, Karen Thurman. For
more information call Kitty
Morgan, at 792-2365. She
will be happy to help you.
I am pleased to see that
our laundry in White
Springs is continuing to
S"rise." Thanks to Captain
Bud and to everyone who is
working so hard on this
new business. We wish
them all the best. Be sure
and support local business-
es in our county. They help


us pay the "till" folks. Sup-
port them when you can.
Many thanks to Mike
Williams and PCS, White
Springs for all their contin-
ued support of local
schools and organizations.
Mike and I grew up to-
gether in White Springs
and attended South
Hamilton together many
moons ago. I am proud of
him and his accomplish-
ments. I read, with interest,
that he and Karen's son, re-
cently went skydiving for
his 16th birthday. Through
the years, I did a lot to get
children to read, I sat on the
roof of the school, roller
skated in pajamas, kissed a
pig you name it the one
thing I would not do is
jump out of an airplane un-
less someone was holding a
big, loaded and cocked gun
on me. I admire this young
man's bravery.
Barbara Thomas has al-
ways been a contributor to
local events. Each year, I
could count on her to sing at
our local Easter Sunrise Ser-
vice and to participate in
other community events. I
was pleased to be a part of
the education of her chil-
dren I am sorry that Bar-
bara is not feeling well these
days, and I want her to
know that I am praying for
her and wishing her well -
as she is part of the reason
that I love living "Way

A belated happy birth-
day to Starr Ranyon, who
celebrated her birthday on
Jan. 20. Starr and Fave Cor-
bett were in Tallahassee,
where she was taking tests
connected with her ESE job
at Hamilton County High
School Starr said she is
loving her job. Of course
she and FaYe got in some
shopping while in Talla-
hassee. Starr appreciated
cards from Brent Runyon.
Vicki Wood and other fam-
ily and friends.
On Jan. 27, Starr and
friends, Crystal Widden
.and Mary Ellen of Panama
City attended the Eliis ILm-
personations at Spirit of
the Suwannee, which she
said was great. She highly
recommends making
preparations to attend
again, which .will be held
next year'on Jan. 25, 2008,
(having attended this pro-
gram last year. I also rec-
ommend it. as an evening
out).,
Thanks to NMariorie Lee, I
learned that Mary Lang
had died in Tampa on Dec.
2, of last year. Evidently
only a few had learned of
Mary's death and attended
a memorial service held on
Sunday. Feb. 18, at Old
Town. It is sad to think that
many did not know of this
loss.
What good memories we
have of Mary and Gene,
and Lang's Store. They
both were so much a part
of our community, church-
es and our lives. We have
already been saddened of
their absence in Jasper and
now sad to learn of Mary's
death,.
Margie and Henry (Nip)

service at Old Town on
Sunday, also Cindy and
Paul Myddleton of Valdos-
ta. We express sympathy,'

such lovely people. Wade
and I had the privilege of
meeting one of Gene's
brothers in St. Augustine
when we were there at
Ponce de Leon Motor
Lodge for a dental week-
end meeting. He was the
manager of that facility
and such a gracious host to
us while we were there. He
reminded us so much of
Gene.
Lang's was a great place
to meet and visit with
friends. It was one of the
first places I felt at home in
Jasper 47 years ago. My
Mother always felt she had
not been to Jasper until we
made a trip to Lang's.
Wade served on the City
Council with Gene and
they were members of the
Jasper Lions Club together.
\Ve waited too long, too
late to get some of the
chicken and rice at the
Sheriff's Department din-
ners last Friday. I heard it
was very good and they
sold out. Thanks to the De-
partment for their contri-
bution to the American
Cancer Society.
We hope to get to the
Chili Cookoff on time on
Saturday of this week. It
should be interesting and
good. We hear there will
be some good cooks doing
their thing at the Old Mid-
dle School. Go early to be
sure and get something
good to eat. I plan to go
early.
As of this writing the
students and staff of the
schools, and many others
are having a holiday for
Presidents Day. I guess this
started in Febitary as

both had birthdays this
month. I- remember in

ago) although I do not be-
lieve our schools were
closed, we studied on
those days about Lincoln
and Washington. How
many now know of the ac-
complishments and the
history of these two presi-
dents. Did you have to
learn the Gettysburg Ad-
dress?
\e are looking forward
to a big day at First Presby-
tenan Church, Jasper, on
Sunday, celebrating our
95th birthday. We hope to
have visitors from the past
and look forward to a big
celebration, with much
good food. (Do you notice
how much the mention of
food appears in this col-
umn)?
Are you ready to relay?
Is there any one of you
who has not in -Nome way
been affected by cancer? In
some way almost every
family has been touched
by the life of someone who
has had to deal with can-
cer. Penny Mickler has
been doing an excellent job
working to make this Re-
lav a success. She knows
the effects of this disease,
she has a sister-in-law who
has suffered in many ways
in the past months, fight-
ing for her life and her
health. Contact Penny and
let her know what you can
do; if you do not know, she
can help you find a place.
There is something for
everyone to do.
The Relay is March 16,
17, don't wait. Call today
792-3745 and show up at
the Relay that will be at the
football field at the old
high school track. See you

Shands begins construction




on $388-million cancer hospital

-I- S.


SHANDS AT UF CANCER CENTER: Shands HealthCare leaders break ground for a $388-million state-of-the-art cancer treatment center to serve North Central Florida. Pnoio: Suommnea


S hands HealthCare leaders re-
cently initiated a $388-million
investment to bring state-of-
the-art cancer treatments to
North Central Florida. Wield-
ing silver shovels, representatives from the
University of Florida (UF) and other sup-
porters joined them in breaking ground on
the Shands at UF Cancer Hospital.
The 500,000-square-foot facility will
house 192 private inpatient beds for a vari-
ety of patients, including those receiving
diagnostic and therapeutic oncology ser-
vices. It also will include a Critical Care
Center for emergency- and trauma-related
services.
"We are very excited about getting start-
ed on a cancer hospital that will provide the
latest treatments and the best available care
to patients," said UF President Bernie
Machen. "We believe this hospitalwill also
help us attract top physicians and research
faculty members to the University of Flori-
da. The result will benefit healthcare and
the economy, not only regionally and
statewide but also. nationally."
Shands designed the cancer hospital
complex to be a welcoming, family friend-
ly place. It will offer a 'healing garden, a

motels to adopt cost-sax ing 'green' prac-
tices that reduce waste and conserve nat-
ural resources.

issues such as cancer prevention and treat-

In 1998, Shands at UF Cancer Hospital
campaign co-Chair Jerry Davis donated $5
million matched by the state to endow the
JUF Shands .Cancer Center, which encom-
passes the oncology-related research and
clinical services located on the UF Health.
Science Center campuses at Shands at UF
and Shands Jacksonville medical centers.
That was before Davis knew what a direct
effect cancer would have on his life. Near-
ly a decade later, his wife, Judith, is a
breast cancer survivor, and he is in his
fourth battle with cancer. They are ardent
supporters of the Shands at UF Cancer Hos-
pital.
"We need a facility where those battling
cancer can find most of the services they
need under one roof in a patient-friendly
environment," Davis said. "This hospital
will allow medical teams to provide their
patients with a more targeted response and
develop improved technologies for diag-
nosing and treating cancer-related illness-

Davis M. Rembert, Jr., who co-chairs eh
hospital's fundraising campaign with
Davis, said he has.always had an interest in
Shands. He grew up next door to State Sen-
ator William A. Shands, who .was instru-
mental in funding the original teaching hos-
pital and for whom it is named. Rembert
said the new facility raises the hopes of
what Shands and UF can accomplish.
"I am proud to live in a community that
boasts such an. excellent healthcare system.
As the number of cancer patients coming to
Shands at UF has steadily increased, so has
the number and types of therapies we of-
fer," Rembert said. "I hope this latest ven-
ture will not only inspire better treatments,
but spearhead our drive toward finding a
cure for cancer."
The UF Shands Cancer Center team is in
pursuit of accreditation from the National
Cancer Institute. There are 65 NCI-accred-
ited cancer centers in the United States. The
UF and Shands HealthCare program would
be the second NCI-designated program in
Florida and make UF and Shands members
of an elite group of medical institutions in
the country.
"One of the advantages of a cancer cen-
ter is multi-disciplinary care. It brings
everything under one roof," said Edward
M. Copeland, MD, UF College of Medicine

rector ofthe UF Shands Cancer Center. "As
we've seen from other first-class facilities,
there is great.value in gathering all the peo-
ple together who share a common focus on
the same disease. This new institution, the
Shands at UF Cancer Hospital, is destined
to become one of the heavy-hitters in can-
cer care."
Shands is building the hospital in re-
sponse to increased demand for cancer ser-
vices. One out of every seven adults hospi-
talized at Shands at UF each year is treated
for cancer or cancer-related ailments. Ac-
cording to the American Cancer Society,
Florida had more than 99,000 new cases of
cancer in 2006. California was the only
state with a higher occurrence.
Shands awarded the construction contract
to Skanska USA Building, Inc. The Shands
at UF Cancer Hospital will be the largest
project Skanska is working on in Florida.
"Today represents a milestone in cancer
care, and we are honored to have the op-
portunity to contribute' to this important
healthcare facility," said Fred Hames, se-
nior vice president and account manager of
Skanska's Tampa office.
Construction on the hospital is scheduled
for completion in 2009.

Members of WAIT (Why Abstinence In-
formation Team) from Hamilton County
High School attended the Pure Love Con-
ference in Valdosta, Ga., on Saturday, Jan.
20.
Natasha Armstrong and Rosa Buonivino

even better. She brought her friend Brooke
Cantrell, who is in the 11th grade also.
Jasmine Daniels is a seventh grader who
attended the conference with her father.
She said she had a good time, while Mr.
Daniels expressed how happy it made him
that he didn't have to bring Jasmine to the

wanted to be here today," Mr. Daniels
said.

mon Deas, Tiffany Buonvino, and her sis-
ter Amy Norris also attended the confer-
ence this year.

their teens an opportunity to bridge the
communication gap, while discussing sen-
sitive issues such as sexuality, sexually
transmitted diseases, pregnancies and re-
lationships. Keith Deltano and Gary
Brown were guest speakers and Soular7
were the featured performers..

tion management, profitability, and op-
portunities for quality strategies. The 2007
Short Course kicks off on Wednesday,

May 4, at the Hilton UF Conference Cen-
ter in Gainesville.

Feb. 28 sales closing


date for Crop Insurance


USDA's Risk Manage-
ment Agency (RMA) re-
minds farmers that Feb. 28
is the sales closing date for
crop insurance. The sales
closing date is the last date
to buy a new policy, to
change the type of policy,
or to change the level of
coverage for an existing
policy for the following
spring-planted crops- in-
Florida: corn, cotton, grain"


sorghum, peanuts, soy-
beans, and tobacco.
The recent rise in some
commodity prices increases
the amount of protection
available under crop insur-
ance policies, but it also in-
creases the premium for
those policies. Local crop
insurance agents are the
best source for coverage,
'i-and the premium informa-
tion.


Crop insurance is sold
and delivered solely
through private crop insur-
ance agents. Contact a local
Multi-Peril Crop Insurance
(MPCI) agent to learn addi-
tional program details.
A list of crop insurance
agents is available at all .

Celebrates the 100th Day
of Kindergarten and I'll
Teach My Dog 100 Words.1
Some classes watched 101
Dalmatians the following
day.
Kindergartners had a
special "Bear Day" on Fri-
day, Feb. 2, to close out
their study of the letter
Bb. They shared their
bears, went on a "bear pa-I
rade" around the school,
read bear stories, ate bear
snacks, and did bear art.
They especially liked
watching Brother Bear on
the big TV in the auditori-
um.
On Feb. 14, our "sun-
shine" committee honored
Mr. Burnam, staff mem-
bers with January/Febru-
ary birthdays, recent
bride, Mrs. Dawn Adams
Combass, and new moth-
er, Angela Boatwright
(who was not present due
to the birth of her son,
Jonathon Thomas con-
gratulations)! Mr. Burnami
was presented with a
plaque of appreciation.
Delicious treats'were en-
joyed by all; the chocolate
fountain was a, favorite!
After school, many staff
members attended the ap-
preciation party at the Jen-
nings Library. Thanks to
Ms..Sandy, her staff, and
her after-school students
for making this such a
special occasion. Refresh-
ments were served and
"goody-bags" were dis-
tributed.
Everyone participated
in the statewide tornado
drill on Wednesday. We
also took spring/ class pic-'
tures, and many classes
enjoyed Valentine activi-
ties. What a busy day at
North Hamilton where
"we are changing lives
through quality educa-
tion."

I was promoted with
Dress Barn. The position I
found the most fulfilling
with Dress Barn was the
Training Store Manager in
which I was responsible
for training (teaching)
managers how to operate a
store. I have always en-
joyed working with other
people on teaching and
learning. It is a sincere
honor to be chosen by my
peers and my supervisors
as Teacher of the Year for
North Hamilton Elemen-
tary and to represent our
school district as District
Teacher of the Year."'
Representing our school
and district as School-Re-
lated Employee of the Year'
is Mrs. Lucille Seymore.
Mrs. Seymore has dedicat-
ed 28 years to our stu-
dents. She has worked
with students on every
level and "pulled" 'all
kinds of duty, like super-
vising at lunch, on the bus
ramp, and in the hallway.
She is well-loved by staff,
students, and parents. She
does a fantastic job of as- '
sisting with classroom in-
struction.
Several classes recently
celebrated the 100th day
of school. Ms. Zant's news
team featured a 100 day'
song. Kindergarten classes
enjoyed sharing and
counting 100 items, such
as pennies, candy, and

support
An estimated 234.460
new cases of prostate can-
cer occurred in the United
States last year, making
prostate cancer the most
frequently diagnosed can-
cer in men. Not only that,
but with an estimated
27,350 deaths in 2006,
prostate cancer is a leading
cause of cancer death in
men, second only to lung
cancer.
Inspired by these devas-
tating statistics, the Ameri-
can Cancer Society. devel-
oped a support program for
men and women with an in-
terest in prostate cancer to
discuss, learn and be sup-
ported throughout their ex-
perience with prostate can-
cer in a comfortable, com-
munity environment. This
program is called Man to
Man, which provides free
individual and group sup-
port, as well as the oppor-
tunity to educate and advo-
cate to their communities
about prostate cancer is-
sues. These meetings are
held every month in vari-
ous locations and refresh-
ments are generally provid-
ed. Both men and women
are invited to attend.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
There it was, right in the help wanted
section. A job I finally liked! It was
close to home and perfect for my
experience. I was sure to get it. I
brushed up my resume and mailed it
immediately. After a few days, I
called the HR Manager to make sure
he got it. That's when he told me
they were reviewing resumes and
would be scheduling interviews. All I
had to do was wait for a phone call.
After a week, I grew concerned. I
called the HR Manager again and left
a voice mail, but still no return call. A
few days later I even stopped by, but
the secretary told me I should wait to
hear from them. It's been over two
weeks and still nothing! I don't
understand why they don't call.
Don't they know I'm the right
person for the job? I can L.
start immediately. What's
wrong with these companies?

Carry: We're guessing the com-
pany hasn't realized you're the perfect
person for the job just yet!
Cash: You have to remember, there's a
fine line between being persistent and
being annoying. Although we commend
your tenacity, contacting the employer
three times in a row could have scared


TE

him off.
Carry: In this case, you need to let the
process take its course. Some companies
can take weeks or even months to fill a
job position. It's also possible they adver-
tised the job to collect resumes for the
future. Some companies use an ad to feel
out the job market and benchmark the
salaries they're paying their employees.
Cash: Since you took the time to
"brush up" your resume, let it speak on
your behalf. If your experience is truly
"perfect" for the position, then the com-
pany will recognize it.
Carry: One follow-up telephone call is
typically acceptable. In cases of smaller
companies, you may even be able to


have a telephone interview and leave a
lasting impression. However, badgering
the Human Resources Manager with
voice mail and personal visits is not
going to help you get the position.
Cash: You should also consider that
your resume may still need some work.
Before applying for other positions, have
someone review it to see if there are any
areas you can improve.
Carry: Although this job may have
seemed perfect, remember that there are
always more opportunities. It's always
best to apply to multiple jobs and expand
your possibilities. You never know, your
dream job may be just a classified ad
away.


rs


Resume 101
Ever wonder how employers sift
through a large pile of resumes? A recent
study by The Association of Job Search
Trainers may offer some insight. Their
survey found that 59% of employers
spend between 1 to 5 minutes initially
reviewing a resume. Almost 17% spend
less than one minute. In the study, less
than one-half of all the resumes received
fell into a "good" or "excellent" category.
The common mistakes were poor layout,
lack of a realistic career objective, skills
that didn't match the employer's needs or
being too wordy.
Touch Tone
Whether it's following up on a job
interview or just hearing from a friend,
most people appreciate a telephone call.
However, prior to October 1,2003, many
individuals were getting worn out from
telemarketers calling their home during
dinnertime. New legislation made it ille-
gal for most telemarketers to call a num-
ber listed on the national Do Not Call
Registry. However, some charities, polit-
ical organizations or telephone surveys
are exempt from the policy. To register
your telephone number, visit
www.donotcall.gov.

Respectable
After my last job interview, I real-
ized how difficult it can be to earn the
respect of your co-workers. On the
interview, I met a Human Resource
Director named Jim. As we walked
into his office, I noticed the engraved
sign on his door that read, "I'M THE
BOSS!"
Trying to make conversation, I
pointed it out. He joked that when
people start getting too relaxed around
the office, he likes to remind them
who's in charge.
After a few questions, we took a
tour of the company. Upon arriving
back at his office, we found a note
posted below his T'I'm the boss' sign.
To his surprise, it read, "Jim, your
wife called. She wants her sign back!"
(Thanks to Barry G)

Farmers battle weather


'. ,* T 'W. .*-; _. ,

-,---.- ,:+ ++,.--., ,.,'+* -.

Globe/Roger Nomer Jeff Richards puts down cattle feed Tuesday in an iced-over trough at his Neosho-area property as the weekend
ice storm continued to pose difficulties for area'farmers, and their cattle and poultry. THE JOPLIN GLOBE (JOPLIN, Mo.)


NEOSHO, Mo. If not
for all the destruction and
extra work, the ice would be
beautiful, said Neosho dairy
farmer Kathleen Reiboldt.
"When the sun comes out,
the trees sparkle like
diamonds," she said.
Even though their dairy
east of Neosho is equipped
with a 45,000-watt
generator, it is taking
Reiboldt's husband, Billy,
and son, Brian, three times
as long as normal to finish
chores that go with their 500
Holsteins.
"Just trying to keep the
cows fed and watered is a lot
of extra work," Kathleen
Reiboldt said. "Keeping
them clean is harder, too."
Power went out around 8


p.m. last Friday at the dairy
on Business Highway 60, as
it did for much of the area.
The single generator supplies
electricity for the barn lights,
milking machines and well
pump. As Reiboldt spoke, a
generator salesman from
Iowa discussed with her the
purchase of a backup
generator.
Going without electricity
for even half a day would
cause serious herd problems
that would last long after the
power is restored, she said.
"We don't even like to
think about that," she said.
Reiboldt said that if the
cows aren't milked on time,
they can develop mastitis, a
painful udder condition, or
they can go off their milk
production.
"It's really stressful on
them," Reiboldt said.


Just east of the Reiboldts'
dairy, cattleman Jeff
Richards said his biggest
obstacle has been traveling
to his herds of commercial
beef cattle. One herd about
two miles from his house
could be reached only by all-
terrain vehicle.
The cattle have creek
water to drink but no hay to
eat, Richards said. Even if
the roads hadn't been
blocked by limbs, the tractor
couldn't handle the icy hills,
he said.
"The only way to go was
by four-wheeler," he said.
"We had to saw our way
through to get there."
Richards said that because
there was no way to take big,
round bales to the livestock,
he and his father, Lee, 78,
are feeding the cattle square
bales that are at least 20


years old from an abandoned
barn.
"That hay has been in
there since when I was in
school in the 1980s,"
Richards said.
Richards said the cattle
also have a difficult time
maneuvering on the icy
ground. If the cattle lie down
on the ice, it is too slippery
for them to stand again,
Upon inspecting one cow
lying in the middle of a field
alone, Richards discovered
that she had found a small
patch of hay that had fallen
from a truck.
Richards' mother, Carol
Richards, said a gas-powered
generator on her son's
welding machine allows the
family to use some
household appliances during
the day, but the men come in
smelling like gasoline with


There are more
than 230,000 head
of cattle in

Newton, McDonald
and Lawrence
counties in Missouri.
no way to wash their clothes.
She said her 4- and 7-year-
old grandsons have been
trying to help haul gas to the
generator.
Carol Richards said the
generator is turned off at
night so no other disasters
happen while the family
sleeps. She said she and her
grandsons have been
sleeping on the living room
floor by the propane logs in
the fireplace while her 90-
year-old mother sleeps on
the couch.
"We curl up under the
covers, and it's quite cozy,"
Carol Richards said.
Poultry farmer Aaron
Wilson said one generator at
his house and another at his
turkey houses operate the
lights, well and feed lines,
but they burn $100 worth of
gasoline daily. He fills them
at 11 p.m., 5 a.m. and
midday.
Wilson, who lost one
turkey barn during an ice
st6rm last November, said
he has plenty of feed and
fuel to see him through until
conditions improve.

"I've heard of people
being out of feed since
Friday," he said. "There are
so many trees across the
road, they can't get feed
trucks in."
Linda Greer writes for The
Joplin (Mo.) Globe.
