a storm with strong winds and severe lightning moved through the area. Although a number of homes were

though wildfires can occur
throughout the year in
Florida, the most active
time for wildfires is from
March to June. Because of
the higher wildfire danger,


Bronson is asking all Florid-
ians to be extremely careful
with outdoor burning.
"People are the major
cause of wildfires in Flori-
da, whether it is the crime
of arson, escaped fire from


land-clearing, chl-lren e',-
perimenting with matches
or an unattended yard fire,"
Bronson said. "People are
responsible for about 85
percent of all Florida wild-
fires."
For many people, dispos-
ing of yard waste (leaves,
grass clippings, tree limbs,
palm fronds, etc.) with a
small fire is a routine part
of spring cleaning. This ac-
tivity is permitted in most
Florida counties without
any specific authorization.
But Bronson emphasized
that the fire must be attend-
ed at all times and be in a
pile no greater than eight
feet in diameter, or in a
non-cumbustible container.
In addition, the fire must be

Daylight Saving Time is

arriving early (and staying longer)


Set clocks one hour ahead
on Sunday, March 11
Starting this year, daylight savLmg time
hasbeen changed from its traditional calen-
dar dates to a start three weeks earlier -
Sunday, March 11 and a inish one
week later Sunday, Nov. 4. Day- "
light saving time is practiced in *
order to gain an e\tra hour otf
daylight during the earl -
evening, resulting in the conservation
of energy by substituting natural sun-
light for electrical lighting.
According to The Old Farmer's
Almanac, Daylight Saving Time
first began in 1918 during World


War I to allow for more evening light and
save fuel for the war effort. Since then, Day-
light Saving Time has been used on and off.
with different start and end dates.
Benjamm Franklin first suggested the
idea in 1784. It was later revived
in 1907, %when William W'illett
A proposed a similar system in
the pamphlet The Waste of Day-
light. The Germans were the first
to officially adopt the light-ex-
tending system in 1915, fol-
lowed by the British, and in
1918 the United States. when
Congress passed the Standard
Time Act, establishing our

open to the public. Al-
though the law has been in
effect for more than 20
years, the Division has not
enforced the law until re-
cently.
Gabe Mazzeo, Supervisor,
Inspections and Investiga-
tions, Bureau of Fire Preven-
tion, and John Holley, Su-
pervisor, Jacksonville Field
Office of the Division of
State Fire Marshall, an-
swered questions about the
inspections from county and
municipal officials, as well
as from the general public.
Holley said the Division
does not expect the county


or the municipalities to in-
spect every public building
within a year.. The govern-
ing officials will need time
to gather information, pre-
pare the records and find
someone to conduct the in-
spections. Mazzeo added
that there was no set dead-
line and they were trying to
work with everyone to get
things in place.
Currently there are only
seven counties in Florida, in-
cluding Hamilton, that do
not conduct fire safety in-
spections. The Division has
been inspecting assisted liv-
ing facilities and daycares
for those counties, but they
have never had the man-


power to inspect all public
buildings. Because of the in-
crease in the number of state
buildings, the Division can-
not continue doing inspec-
tions for buildings not
owned by the state.
Mazzeo said that as a gen-
eral rule, any place the pub-
lic goes into would have to
be inspected. Most buildings
will have to be inspected
every two years. High haz-
ard facilities that contain
chemicals or flammable ma-
terials will have to be in-
spected every year. Schools
have to be inspected twice a
year once by the county
and once by a company con-
tracted by the school.


What is a public building?


The following is a par-
tial list- of public build-
ings. Soine buildings have
to meet occupancy codes
or other requirements to
be considered a public
building. If you have any
questions call County Co-
ordinator Bob Poor at 792-
6639. -

According to Florida
Statute 633.081, a county or
a municipality can set fees
to cover only the costs of in-
spections and administra-
tive expenses.
"We are not doing this to
make money. We are doing
this to protect the lives and
the property of our citizens,"
Poor said.
Henry Land, Coordinator
for Hamilton County Fire
Departments, agreed. 'We
are not trying to make busi-
nesses spend money. We
are trying to protect the
public. We have been work-
ing to improve our ISO rat-
ings and fire safety inspec-
tions should help. Better rat-
ings may result in lower in-
surance premiums."
An ISO rating is based on
a fire department's protec-
tion and suppression efforts.
Many insurance companies
use ISO ratings to determine
the rates for fire insurance in

at least 25 feet from the home of the
person burning or any wooded area,
at least 50 feet from any paved road-
way and at least 150 feet from other
occupied buildings.
If the wildfire threat becomes severe,
counties, municipalities or the Florida
, department pf Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services could enact a bum ban
that prohibits all outdoor burning until
weather conditions improve. Residents
should check with their local office of
the Florida Division of Forestry or the
nearest fire department to learn if a
burn ban is in effect and how to bum


legally and safely.
"We all need to be sure that our
carelessness does not create a wildfire
that endangers the property of others,"
Bronson said.
Inadequate or widely scattered pre-
cipitation typically means an increased
wildfire danger and is monitored by
the Keetch-Byram Index (KBDI),
which estimates the dryness of the soil
and duff layers. The index increases
for each day without'rain (the amount
of increase depends on the daily high
temperature) and decreases when it
rains. The scale ranges from 0 (no
moisture deficit) to 800 (desert-like
conditions).

a municipality or county. A
lower rating may lower in-
surance premiums signifi-
cantly.
"The hardest part of this
will be getting everything
organized," Land said.
One difficulty will be
identifying the location of
all the businesses in the
county. Businesses are not
required to have a license to
operate in the county. All
the municipalities require
businesses to buy occupa-
tional licenses. The County
will probably set up a li-
censing system for business-
es, according to Poor.
At this time, neither the
county nor the municipali-
ties have anyone qualified
for the position of fire safety
inspector. An inspector has
to meet the inspection train-
ing requirements set by the
State Fire Marshal and com-
plete a training program of
no less than 200 hours.


House leaders said only
a few local project re-
quests will be funded in
2007-2008. House Speaker
Marco Rubio, R-Miami,
told House members in a
Feb. 19 memo that local
projects may be funded if
some other budget item is
eliminated.
Rep. Will Kendrick, R-
Carrabelle, said Hamilton

cerned with improve-

An experienced inspector
could complete an inspec-
tion of a restaurant in ap-
proximately 30 to 45 min-
utes, according to Holley.
He pointed out that was in-
spection time only and did
not include travel time, re-
search, or paperwork.
The County has suggest-
ed forming an inter-local
agreement with the munic-
ipalities to hire one inspec-
tor for all inspections. The
Town of Jennings and the
Town of White Springs
have responded favorably.
The City of Jasper is ex-
ploring its options, accord-
ing to Vice-Mayor Edna
Burnham.
More public workshops
will be scheduled and Poor
encourages every business
owner and manager of a

tem because this need in-
creases each year. He said
if these improvements
aren't funded by the
state, Jasper is not likely
to make the improve-
ment.
Jasper City Manager
Kent Cichon agrees the
water improvements are
top priority. However, if
the state doesn't fund
them, he said there's no
plan to make the water
improvements.

The United Way of
Suwannee Valley's 2006-
2007 campaign has been the
organization's most suc-
cessful effort in several
years. The campaign, which
benefits 23 local non-profit
agencies, is projected to to-
tal $669,113 exceeding the
goal of $660,000 set last
year.
"As I am every year, I am
in awe of the tremendous,
caring community for
which I am proud to serve
as your United Way execu-
tive director. It feels ab-
solutely impossible to ade-
quately thank all those who
contribute to the success of
our United Way," said
United Way of Suwannee
Valley Executive Director
Rita Dopp.
"United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley is identified with
the community fundraising
campaign in support of the
affiliated agency programs,-
but it also has other suc-
cesses. Resources convened
in addition to the communi-
ty fundraising campaign
yield significant communi-
ty impact," added Dopp.
Planning Committee
i member and lifetime board
member Tom Brown re-
ported on 2006 community
S impact results. Throughout
2006 the Planning Commit-

had begun in prior years.
-; ''. Brown said, "United Way
of Suwannee Valley contin-
ues to be recognized by the
state of Florida as the lead
agency. for our homeless
coalition, the Homeless Ser-
vices Network of Suwannee
Valley." He also addressed
local implementation of 2-
1-1 as the easy-to-remem-
ber number to seek infor-
mation or referral assis-
tance.
Brown told fellow volun-
:-Tl: teers about the response in
.. support of those at risk of
not recovering from the
2004 l4urricanes. "In re-
sponse to the impact of the
r''- 2004 hurricanes on our


community, our United
Way convened our tri-
county community's Long-
Term Recovery Committee.
While the work to provide
case management for local
residents impacted by the
2004 hurricanes became
coupled with assistance
provided to 2005 hurricane
evacuees, the final 2004 case
came to completion in Au-
gust 2006/' said Brown.
The Communications
Committee lead by Mike
McKee initiated a meeting
style that provided the op-
portunity to recognize the
many who do so much to
ensure the United Way is a
success by recognizing
committee members in a
video. Award certificates
were displayed at the tables
of each of those being rec-
ognized. McKee said, "Each
one of you is appreciated. If
you did not care for our
community and work iri
support of it, you would
not be here tonight."
PCS of White Springs
provides an outstanding
United Way campaign or-
ganized and conducted by
their own campaign team.

PCS employee campaign,
which the corporation
matched to achieve a total

insult and capitu-
lation of white
delegates to black
hustlers. Possibly,
the whites who
voted in support
of the declaration
were mau-maued
into it or they felt
guilt over our his-
tory of slavery. In
any case, they
should know that


their actions mean little in dealing with
the day-to-day plight of many black Vir-
ginians which has nothing to do with
slavery.
The US murder rate is 5.6 people per
100,000 of the population. In the Com-
monwealth of Virginia's capital, Rich-
mond, where the General Assembly
meets, the murder rate is 43 people per
100,000 of the population, making Rich-
mond the city with the third-highest
murder rate in the nation, according to a
2005 FBI report.
What about black education in Vir-
ginia? According to. the National Assess-
ment of Educational Progress (NAEP),
black education is a disgrace. In 2003, 51
percent of black eighth-graders scored
below basic; 49 percent at or above basic;
of these, only 11 percent scored profi-
cient. For black fourth-graders, the scores
were 34, 66 and 13 percent, respectively.
In 2002 in reading, 38 percent of black
eighth-graders scored below.basic, with


62 percent at or above basic and 15 per-
cent scoring proficient. For fourth-
graders, the scores were 53, 47 and 15
percent, respectively.
Below basic is the category the NAEP
uses for students unable to display even
partial mastery of knowledge and skills
fundamental for proficient work at their
grade level. Given this extreme academic
incompetence, one shouldn't be sur-
prised by the 2002 Virginia State Educa-
tion Profile showing that the median
combined SAT score for black students is
a disgraceful 848 out of 1600, 210 points
below the white median, and the white
median is nothing to write home about.
The next time the Virginia General As-
sembly gets into an apologetic mood and
wants to pass another resolution aimed
at its black citizens, here are my sugges-
tions: The Commonwealth of Virginia
apologizes to its black citizens for not
protecting them from criminals who prey
upon them and make their lives a daily
nightmare. The Commonwealth also
apologizes for our government-sanc-
tioned school system that delivers fraud-
ulent education, thereby consigning
many of its black citizens to the bottom
rungs of the economic ladder.

Commentary


By Martha Hanna
The death and funeral
of Gerald R. Ford has
caused much reflection in
my life. I watched the fu-
neral with bittersweet
memories filling my
mind.
Gerald Ford was the
first presidential candi-
date I voted for. I smile
because voting for your
first presidential candi-
date is like that first
sweet kiss; you never for-
get. I was a freshman at
Abraham Baldwin Agri-
cultural College in Tifton,
Ga., and of course every-,
one at my school was vot-
ing for Georgia's favorite
son, Jimmy Carter.

If the old adage
about March holds
true then the
month should go
out "like a lamb," as it
certainly "came in" like a
lion on Thursday, March
1. When inclement weath-
er is severe enough that I
wake up then it is pretty
bad. The lightning and
thunder storms that oc-
curred late Thursday
night and early Friday
morning were, to say the
least, very severe.
About 3 a.m. on Friday
morning, one could have
read a newspaper by the
lightning at the house.
Thankfully, we were
spared the intense severi-
ty of the storm that was
borne by many others in
the neighboring states of
Alabama and Georgia.
Let us keep these situa-
tions in our prayers.
The Hamilton County
Democratic Party hosted
its second annual Appre-
ciation Dinner to a
"packed house" at the
Telford Hotel Restaurant
on Thursday, March 1.
There was such a big
crowd present that more
tables and chairs were
brought in to accommo-
date everyone in the
large, main dining room.
The evening began with a
welcome by Democratic
Party Chair, Rhett
Bullard, the blessing was
led by outgoing Democra-
tic Party Chair, Isaac
Chandler Sr., and the
pledge was led by Rhett
Bullard.
Following a delicious
dinner, awards were pre-
sented to Mrs. Elizabeth

ratic Executive Commit-

many years, state com-
mitteewoman for the local

ed happy birthday!
Mr. Isaac Chandler Sr.,
outgoing Democratic Ex-
ecutive Committee Chair,
was honored by the com-
mittee as being a long-
time supporter of the lo-
cal Democratic Party. Our
congratulations are ex-
tended to Mrs. Barrett
and Mr. Chandler.
Local elected officials
who were present for the
event included: County
Judge Sonny Scaff, Clerk
of the Court Greg God-

David Goolsby, School

missioner Ronnie Mor-
gan. The evening was de-
signed to honor all mem-
bers of the county com-
mission, but four out of
the five members were

They will be presented
their appreciation from
the Democratic Executive
Committee at a later time.
. Many thanks to the
Hamilton County Democ-

tee for all their hard work
in producing an outstand-
ing event. Our thanks are
extended to Nick and
Cathy Lyras and staff at
the Telford Hotel, and to
the Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park

for the use of their public
address system. We ap-
preciate the work of State
Park employee Larry
Hoover for all his hard
work in setting up the
system and taking it
down.
Our thanks are extend-
ed to South Hamilton Ele-

setting up the flags and
taking them down.
Many thanks to Avis

for the beautiful center-
pieces on the tables and
to Mr. Charles Blalock
and Mr. Ron Griffis for
donating the door prizes.
Don't forget to mark
your calendars for Satur-
day, March 17, the date
for the seventh annual
Wild Azalea Festival in
White Springs. The Festi-
val will feature regional
arts and crafts, foods, mu-

It's purple martin time in Florida


Because of its geographic
location, Florida leads the
nation in arrival of purple
martins from their winter-
ing grounds in South
America. Reports of
"scouts" are watched na-
tionally in an online data-
base at purplemartin.org -
maintained by the Purple
Martin Conservation Asso-
ciation (PMCA), a nonprof-
it conservation organiza-
tion.
The earliest arriving mar-
tin for two years running
has been reported from
Fort Pierce, Florida, on Dec.
11 in 2006 a very early
bird and on Dec. 28 in
2005.


The term "scout" is a
misnomer, according to the
PMCA. These earliest ar-
rivals are simply experi-
enced older martins that
have made the journey be-
fore and are eager to re-
claim their housing. Florid-
ians have a long tradition
of hosting purple martins,
which nest in colonies in
multi-compartment bird
houses and in gourds hung
from large racks placed in
open areas in yards and
parks statewide. This
largest member of the swal-
low species is totally de-
pendent on humans for
housing, and "landlords".
anxiously await their re-


turn each year.
Adult male purple mar-
tins are a glossy blue-black
in color, which they obtain
at two years of age. Fe-
males are a bit more drab,
with a gray breast. Most
older adults arrive in Flori-
da after Jan. 15 and well
into February, according to
a PMCA migration map.
One-year-old martins -
so called "sub adults" -
begin arriving 10 to 12
weeks after the older birds
in the Deep South. These
younger birds are more
easily attracted to new
housing locations.
As a species, purple mar-
tins are relatively common


throughout Florida, but
have experienced a decline
in the central part of the
state, based on data from
the North American Breed-
ing Bird survey. Reasons
are unclear, but probably
include a lack of suitable
housing.
Purple martins are swal-
lows of the open sky- and
prefer housing with at least
several open flyways. Place
housing in the most open
space available, but where
the colony can be enjoyed
and monitored.
For more information
contact the PMCA at 814-
833-7656 or visit purple-
martin.org.

Trojans end great season as District Champions and Regional Runners-Up


For the second game in a row, the
HCHS Trojans found themselves facing a
17 point deficit in the second half. This
time, however, the outcome wasn't in fa-
vor of the Trojans wearing the red and
black.
The Hamilton County boys' basketball
team traveled to Jacksonville to take on
Ribault High School, who, ironically
enough, has the same mascot as HCHS -
the Trojans.
Sophomore Josh Jones scored the first
two points for HCHS on a putback. Later
in the quarter, fellow sophomore Ti'Wan
Cooks canned a 3-pointer to give Hamil-
ton an 11-8 lead. After Ribault's shooting
guard Ragland made consecutive 3-point-
ers, senior Eric Jackson came right back
down to make a trey of his own to tie the
score at 14. Ribault scored the last bucket
of the quarter, giving them a 16-14 lead.
The second quarter began with fresh-
man Vincent Bailey following his own
shot and then drilling a baseline jumper.
After junior Anthony Stevens made a free
throw, Ribault went on a 7-point run to
give them a 28-20 lead midway through
the quarter. Bailey ended the Hamilton
drought with two free throws and, after a
Ribault score, Bailey scored again to cut
the Ribault lead to 6.
A strange play ensued on the next pos-
session as Ribault scored and Hamilton
was called for a foul away from the ball,
putting Ribault's Chris Summers on the
line for two more free throws. Summers
made both for, essentially, a 4-point play
and a 10-point lead. A few minutes later,
Bailey made an old-fashioned 3-point play
to cut the Ribault lead back to 10. Jones
and junior Josh Paul made free throws to
cut the lead to 8, which is what the differ-
ence would be at the half, 40-32 Ribault.
HCHS started the third quarter strongly,
scoring the first 5 points in the half on a
layup and 3-pointer by Jones. After 3 free
throws by Ribault, junior Malcolm Pollock
hit a running jumper to cut the Ribault
lead to 43-39. That's when Ribault High
went on a big run, scoring the next 12
points in the game and giving them a 16-
point lead with 3:44 left in the quarter.
Jones ended the streak with a free throw
but the Ribault Trojans came right back
down and hit a shot to give them their
biggest lead of the game, 57-40 with about
., 3 minutes remaining in the quarter. Cooks
made two free throws for HCHS but Rib-
ault scored again to equal their biggest


Ip vi7.


with 1:22 remaining in the game, the score
stood at 71-68 Ribault.
Unfortunately, from that point, Ribault
made most of their free throws as the
Hamilton Trojans scrambled to either cre-
ate a turnover or make a foul. Ribault
made 8 out of their final 10 free throws,
making the final score 81-71.
Hamilton County was extremely well-
represented on that Saturday night as
they may have had more fans in the


e stands than Ribault did. Coach Murphy
was very pleased with the support of the.
fans and he was also extremely proud of'-
his team's effort.
HCHS ended their season as Regional
Runners-Up (one of the final 8 teams in
the state), District Champions, and had an
overall 22-8 record after a 6-17 record the
year before.
It was an unforgettable season for the
Trojans!

lead at 17 points with 2:30 left. Cooks
came right back and found junior Robin
McClain on an inbound play for a jumper,
cutting the lead to 15. But, again, Ribault
scored as Ragland made two free throws
for a 17 point lead again. However,
Hamilton responded with a 3-pointer by
Jones on another inbound play to make
the score 61-47 Ribault at the end of the
quarter.
Jones scored the first points for HCHS
in the final quarter with another 3-point
shot but after a Ribault free throw, the
score stood at 64-50 with 7:30 left in the
game. Bailey came down the court, made
a layup and was fouled on the play. Bailey
made his free throw to finish the 3-point
play and cut the Ribault Trojan lead to 11.
After free throws made by both teams,
senior Glenn Sheppard blocked a lay up
attempt by Ribault, passed to Jackson who
found Bailey for a layup. Bailey was
fouled once again on the attempt. He
made his free throw for his third 3-point
play of the game. The big play made the
score 66-58 with 4:10 remaining in the
game.
By this time, the Hamilton contingent of
fans were extremely loud and was really
into the game. It almost seemed like a
home game for Hamilton! Ribault's se-
nior-laden team began to make some mis-
takes and Hamilton kept fighting.
After causing another Ribault turnover
(HCHS would end up forcing 5 Ribault
turnovers in the quarter), Jackson passed
to Cooks, who made yet another old-fash-
ioned 3-point play as he was fouled on a
leaning jump shot. This cut the Ribault
lead to 5 at 66-61.
Ribault turned the ball over on their
next possession, giving Hamilton posses-
sion of the ball with under 3 minutes re-
maining in the game. On their possession,
HCHS found Eric Jackson open on the
wing for a deep two-pointer, which got
the Hamilton Trojans to within 3 points of
the Ribault Trojans, 66-63.
Unfortunately, senior Ragland of Rib-
ault answered with a 3-point play of his
own, spreading the Ribault lead back to 6
points with 2:30 left..Cooks cpuntered
with a jumper and Ribault came right
back down and made a free throw.
After a Hamilton timeout, Josh Jones
made a big jumper on the right wing to
once again draw HCHS to within 3 points
of Ribault High with 1:40 left. Ribault and
Ti'Wan Cooks both made free throws and

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Hello! Can you believe
that two months of the
year have already passed?
We are fast moving on into
the month of March. I can't
remember, how did it
come in; although we do
remember last week. There
is a saying that if March
comes in like a lion it goes
out like a lamb; maybe we
can hope for a calm end-
ing.
We have so much for
which to be thankful. The
news is full of tragedies of
what others have suffered
from the storms. A dear
friend and former class-
mate lives in an area of
Americus, Ga. and I was
unable to get in touch with
her directly for a few days.
I talked with her daughter-
in-law and learned that her
yards were destroyed and
a pool house, but she still
had a roof which many in
her area did not.
When she was finally
able to return my call with
her cell phone, there was
no phone or power. I
learned that her sons and
their families had cleaned
her yard, not a tree stand-
ing, but the call was inter-
rupted as the tree company
came to remove the one
damaged tree her family
could not handle. Other
homes in her neighbor-
hood received severe dam-
age, but she was able to
stay in her home.
I waited out the storm in
my hallway with no win-
dows, all doors closed, and
a box of Girl Scout cookies.
As I was looking
through the Florida Times
Union on Sunday, in the
Golden Years section, there


was a
picture of Elva and Carl
Anderson who celebrated
their 50th wedding an-
niversary. They are the
parents of David Anderson
of Jasper. We talked with
Emily Anderson, David's
wife, who told us they
have been celebrating his
parents' anniversary and
David's birthday recently.
Emily's mother is back at
Suwannee Valley Nursing
Center after spending sev-
eral days at South Georgia
Medical Center. She is still
weak but I visited with her
for a few minutes. She was
up and was happy to be
out of the hospital.
It is great to get good
news of families who grew
up here and still have a
place in their hearts for
Jasper. Debbie Clay Bass is
married to Steve Bass; they
live and work in Madison.
Debbie continues to work
at NFCC as the coordinator
of a returning student
scholarship program and
as an advisor and retention
counselor. Steve is a
teacher at Madison County
High School, teaching biol-
ogy and chemistry. The
Bass' son, Clay, finished his
AA degree at NFCC and
will be entering the Navy
in June to train as a nuclear
electrician. He will be in
school for two years. Their
daughter, Christy, is mar-
ried to David Adams and
she is a teacher in Madison
County. She will be going
to the Ukraine in June for
two weeks to serve on a
team of teachers along with
a physical therapist. They
will help train Ukrainian
special education teachers.


Susan Clay lives in
Athens, Ga., where she
works as a massage thera-
pist at the University of
Georgia's Health Center.
She is a graduate of Uni-
versity of Georgia. She is
also employed at a local
spa, the Foundry Park Inn.
Debbie and Susan are
graduates of Hamilton
County High School; they
and Steve are graduates of
Valdosta College. Debbie
and Susan are the daugh-
ters of Dr. George and
Mary Clay of Jasper.
ARE YOU READY TO
RELAY? Read more about
it in The Jasper News, and
get in touch with Penny
Mickler, chairman. There is
much to be done for this
event and YOU can be a
part of it. There is some-
thing for everyone; it will
be so rewarding that you
will be glad you took part.
We know you have been
affected in some way by
cancer. May we offer any
help we can give to help
find a cure, and to care for
those who are in some state
of this dreadful and dread-
ed disease, and in memory
of those who have not sur-
vived. Hope to see you at
the relay. See you there.
Do not forget to set your
clocks up one hour this
weekend. I was not aware
of this being the time until
our minister announced it
in church on Sunday.
Clocks are to be set up this
year on the second Sunday
in March, he explained it
but I just remember that
this is what we are sup-
posed to do. Hope you
make it to Church or Sun-
day School at the correct
time; at least, I hope I do.
Until next week, take
care.

Pet immunization time is here
March is immunization time for pets schedued the following rabies immu-


in Hamilton County. This year it is es-
pecially important to immunize pets
due to the increased incidence of hu-
man and animal contact with rabid ani-
mals.
Everyone should make a special effort
to immunize their pets and control their
activity to minimize an encounter with
rabies and to ensure resistance to rabies
if bitten by a rabid animal. .
The Hamilton County Health Depart-
ment and the municipalities have


nization clinics for pets:
Saturday, March 13, Jennings Fire Sta-
tion, Hamilton St., Jennings 9 a.m. un-
til 12 p.m.
Saturday, March 13, White Springs
Veterinary Clinic, 10606 Bridge St.,
White Springs 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
The pet immunization clinics have
been established as a convenience to
pet owners in Hamilton County. There
will be a reduced price of $6 per pet for
rabies shots at each clinic.

Making the most out of electronics


To some anglers, electronics the type
you'll find at the console and on the bow
of any modern fishing boat can be a lit-
tle confusing. Why? Because of the mis-
nomer that is attached to them: "fish
finders." I, like most everyone else, have
heard this expression a million times and
it still seems funny toIme. If they found,,,.
fish, like the term suggests,'then why
aren't we all catching our limits of huge
fish every time we turn the thing on?
The truth is, electronics aren't necessar-
ily used to find fish but to find structural
breaks, rock piles or stumps that can help
you locate fish. These
high-tech electronics
give you a pair of s *
underwater eyes so Fishin
that you can tell
what the bottom of
the fishery is like. It's T h e
not just a bowled out
hole out there there With Mike
are humps, drops,
channel swings,
points and isolated pockets of cover and
that's what I am looking to find.
Often times, when I'm slowly motor
over a big flat area that is for example -
eight-feet deep, I am watching my elec-
tronics like a hawk waiting for the depth
to drop to 10 or 11 feet and rise back up
to eight feet. That tells me that there's a
change in structure and contour. After I
drop some marker buoys overboard to
mark the spot of the transition, I'll start
casting something like a Berkley Frenzy
crankbait, maybe a Carolina rig with a
Berkley Power Bait lizard or a heavy jig.
These baits will come into contact with
the bottom and let me know more about


I


1


E


it. Also, these baits cover a lot of water so
I can find out pretty quick whether or not
there's a fish in the area that I can catch.
When.the time comes that I am using
my electronics to find a fish, I'm still not
necessarily looking for a bass. Mostly, I
am looking for fish activity especially
baitfish that show up as dark clouds on
the electronics. If I see that the depth of
the water is, for example, 25 feet and the
bait fish are at 15 feet, then I know to fo-
cus my efforts in 15 feet of water since
that is the depth where the feeding is tak-
ing place. Knowing that, I can drop shot a
Gulp! sinking 'min-
now or swim a Clas-
Sn sic Power Jig at the
Lg On right depth.
This information is
d g especially important
Edge this time of year as
we approach winter
laconelli and colder tempera-
ture throughout most
of the country. In ,
winter, bass are more lethargic and are
most often found deep in the fishery's
warmest water. So, I look on my electron-
ics for deep water with vertical break ar-
eas, places where the channel swings to
create depth.
To catch more fish using your electron-
ics, it's important to disregard this "fish
finder" misnomer and not use it as a
crutch. By using the equipment actively
and searching for areas where fish should
be, most often you won't actually have to
see the fish to catch it.
Berkley Pro Staffer Mike Iaconelli is the
2006 BASS Angler of the Year and the
2003 Bassmaster Classic champion.

tice. Written comments should be provided to

agency action may file 'a petition within four-
teen days of receipt of that notice, regardless
of the date of publication. A petitioner shall
mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above, at the time of fil-
ing. The failure of any person to file a petition
within the applicable time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of that person's right to request
an administrative determination (hearing) un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and participate as
a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will

proposed action:

(d) A statement of all disputed issues of ma-
terial fact. If there are none, the petition must

action is based shall state that no such facts
are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as re-
quired by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.

Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the permit-
ting authority's final actiorfmay be different
from the position taken by it in this notice of

the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.

any permit revision. Any petition shall be
based only on objections to the permit revi-
sion that were raised with reasonable speci-
ficity during the 30 (thirty) day public com-
ment period provided in this notice, unless
the petitioner demonstrates to the Adminis-
trator of the EPA that it was impracticable to
raise such objections within the comment pe-
riod or unless the grounds for such objection
arose after the comment period. Filing of a
petition with the Administrator of the EPA
does not stay the effective date of any permit
properly issued pursuant to the provisions of

the Administrator of EPA must meet the re-
quirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2)

EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Wash-
ington, D.C. 20460.

Quilt preparation presentation
Many quilters enjoy making quilt tops, however, they are
not skilled at machine quilting and may not have the time or
skills to hand quilt. In this case, they may want to have
someone with a specialized quilting machine, called a long-
arm quilter, do the quilting for them. The long-arm quilter is
called that due to its unique shape designed to be able to
sew on the very large surfaces of quilts. On Tuesday, March
20, at 11 a.m., in the Extension office located at 1302
Eleventh St. SW, Live Oak, Glenda Jensen will teach how to
prepare a quilt top to be quilted on a long-arm quilting ma-
chine. The presentation is free to the public but you are
asked to call 386-362-2771 to register by Monday, March

\ Suwannee Valley


By Pam Campbell

f we open up our Bibles to Psalm 100,
f we will find just five verses. Howev-
er, those five verses have so very
much wisdom and so much promise!
It begins like this, "Shout for joy to
the Lord, all the earth." What are we supposed
to do? Shout for joy. Does it say to keep our joy
quiet? God simply tells us to shout for joy! He
says all the earth, that means every man,
woman, boy and girl is to shout for joy. As a
Christian, we should -never go around feeling
sad, depressed and lonely or feeling sorry for
ourselves. We are to shout for joy and we will re-
ceive the joy of the Lord.
Then it goes on to say, "Worship the Lord with
gladness; come before him with joyful songs."
We need to learn to take time in our busy lives to
worship the Lord gladly and have his joy and his
songs in our hearts and lives. Worship and
singing should not only be for church, but we
should make them a daily part of our lives. We
can worship the Lord and sing praise to him in
our homes, outside on a starry night, anytime,
anywhere; God loves it when his children take
time to come to him. We should take time to be
alone with the Lord and we should also make
time in our lives for family devotions. Be sure to
make time for worship along with your devo-
tions.
I love this next verse and I am sure that you
will, "Knovw thatthe Lord. is God. It is he who
ma-e us; and we' are the sheep of his pasture."
Wow, the Lord is God! Can you believe that
right there he gives us such a remarkable
promise! We are the sheep of his pasture! We are
the Lord's sheep! In Luke 12:32 God talks to his
sheep. "Fear not, little flock; for it is the Father's

good pleasure to give you the kingdom." God
wants to give us everything in his kingdom,
everything that we will ever need. We never
have to worry about any problem or need as
long as we are one of the Lord's sheep! If we
continue to live our lives for him and follow
him, we will have all that we need on this earth
and we will have a heavenly home with him in
his kingdom.
The fourth verse of Psalm 100 tells us the way
we need to live that we may always have the joy
of the Lord in our lives. "Enter his gates with
thanksgiving and his courts with praise: give
thanks to him and praise his name." When we
learn to go into church with our hearts already
full of praise, then our churches will become the
light that the Lord desires them to
be. They \will be a place full of -

things that are not full of joy? The church service
would be a very different kind of service. Think
about it, everyone full of Laanksgiving and
praise! How happy that would surely make our
Lord, everyone giving thanks to his name and
praising him!
As Christians, we should take that a step fur-
ther and go before the Lord everyday with that
same thanksgiving and praise in our own spe-
cial private time with our Lord. How often
should we do this? Philippians 4:4 answers that
question for us, "Rejoice in the Lord always, and

again I say rejoice." We should always be full of
joy and rejoice in the Lord, always.
Here, I am reminded of a story that is in vol-
ume one of the One Year Book of Family Devo-
tions. A young boy was supposed to be practic-
ing his trumpet, and he wanted to quit after just
five minutes. He told his mother that he never
gets any better at it. His mom told him that some
things take lots and lots of practice. That night
the family had devotions and they read in the
book of Philippians. The dad asked the kids'
what the main theme was in what they had read.
Sara knew the answer, joy and rejoice. The son
was not sure, so the mom had some good advice
that I will share with you. "Maybe joy is a bit like
trumpet playing, Peter." Mother suggested.
"Maybe it takes practice. We have to practice be-
ing joyful over and over, even though we may
not feel like being joyful. Some day in the future
rejoicing will get easier for us, just like your
trumpet playing will get easier for you. Let's all
start practicing joy in this house, okay?" I like
that mom's idea; we should all start practicing
joy everyday in our homes, on our jobs, at our
schools, and especially in our churches! God cer-
tainly tells us how to have his joy.
The last verse of this wonderful chapter of
Psalms gives us all promises that last forever!
"For the Lord is good and his love endures for-
ever, his faithfulness continues through all gen-
erations." Now that is an awesome promise
from God! He promises that the Lord is good
and that his love,,endures forever! Nl..1 Na
promise alone should make us joyful! God says
that his love endures forever! No matter what
may happen to you, or to anyone in this world,'
God's love will never end! The amazing thing is
that isnot all of this promise, he also says his'
faithfulness continues through all generations!,
That means he will be just as faithful to you now'
as he was to his children 100 years ago and he
will continue to be faithful to his children forev-
er.
You see God has written out in five short vers-
es the key to a happy life, giving thanks and hav-
ing his joy. Psalm 100 offers us so much wisdom
and so may promises. Next Sunday go into your
church full of thanksgiving and praise. Every-
day, take time to get alone with the Lord and fol-
low your shepherd with thanksgiving and give
him praise. He will fill you with more joy than
you have ever imagined! Remember, shout for:
joy!

Shout forjoy!


By 'a P Campbell
In the Bible there is a book called Psalms. One of the chapters in that
book has only five verses, it is Psalm 100. The five verses tell us how to
have lot's of joy and they promise us many things.
Psalm 100 starts out
like this, "Shout for
joy to the Lord, all the
earth." God is telling
us to shout for joy!
God means every-
body, man, woman,
boy and girl, the
whole earth should
shout for joy. Then he
tells us to worship the
Lord with gladness
and to sing joyful
songs. God is talking
about when we go to
Church, and all the
other days of our
lives too. We should
go to church and not
be worrying about
other things, or be
mad, or grouchy. We
are to worship the
Lord with gladness!
God also wants us to
take time everyday to
Worship himn at home''
or wherever we are.
Singing and worship
are : not only for
church; we can do
both everyday!
I love this next
verse and I am sure
that you will, "Know
that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are the sheep of his pas-
ture." Wow, the Lord is God! We are the Lord's sheep! If we live our lives
for him and follow him, we will have everything that we need.
The next verse says, "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts
with praise: give thanks to him and praise his name." Think about it,
everyone full of thanksgiving and praise at church! How happy that
would make the Lord.
I know a story about a boy that was supposed to be practicing his trum-
pet and he wanted to-stop. His mom told him that he would get better if
he practiced. That night they had family devotions after supper and the
dad read the Bible. The dad wanted to know if the kids saw a theme in the
verse they had just read. The boy's sister knew the answer, it was joy and

rejoice. The mom told her little boy that maybe
joy is just like practicing the trumpet. Maybe all
of us should practice being joyful and then we
will get better at it.
The last verse of this neat chapter of Psalms
gives us all promises that last forever! "For the
Lord is good and his love endures forever, his
faithfulness continues through all generations."
Now that is an awesome promise from God! He
promises that the Lord is good and that his love
endures forever! Now that promise should make
us joyful! God says that his love endures forever!
No matter what may happen to you or to anyone
in this world, God's love will never end! The
amazing thing is there is more to his promise. He
also says that his faithfulness continues through
all generations! That means that he will be just as
faithful to you now as he was to his children 100
years ago and he will continue to be faithful to
you forever.
You see God has given you the key to a happy
life, giving thanks and having his joy. Next Sun-
day go into your church full of thanksgiving and
praise. Everyday, take time to get alone with the
Lord, and follow your shepherd with thanksgiv-
ing and give him praise. He will fill you with
more joy than you have ever imagined! Remem-

Addiction to exercise unhealthy



Addiction to exercise unhealthy


Typically, the more a person tends to exercise, the more that person
realizes how much better exercise makes them not only look, but feel as
well. While many people admittedly start an exercise regimen to look
better as opposed to feel better, soon that positive feeling is as much a lure
as a shrinking waistline. If not careful, the exercise addiction can lead
newcomers or even veteran gym rats down a dangerous road.
Ask a few physicians
how much exercise is
enough and you might
SL hear different answers
i from each one. However,
with each response will
likely come a similar
A warning: don't overdo it.
That's because overdoing
it with respect to exercise
S' can be very damaging,
_,_ often negating the positive
effects you might get from
the exercise, in the first
a place.
What Is Exercise
Addiction?
lr1 "A .. 4 While it is not
recognized as a primary
disorder by the American
Psychiatric-Association,
exercise addiction should
.".. not be taken lightly.
Sometimes referred to as
exercise dependence,
''': obligatory exercise or
S..| compulsive athleticism,
exercise addiction is
Overdoing it in the gym can be very dangerous. considered a symptom of
bulimia nervosa, the eating disorder most commonly associated with
binging and purging. While not all exercise addicts are bulimics (and vice
ve.rsa'.-the two are typically connected when a Ierson exercises excessively
after bfiging,-partfcu-larly lien exercise replaces purging. *
What Are the Signs of Exercise Addiction?
As mentioned, exercise addiction is not a recognized disorder, so research
into it has been more of exercise addiction as a symptom of something else,


as opposed to the recognizable symptoms of exercise addiction itself. Still,
there are some telltale signs that indicate an unhealthy attitude toward
exercise.
Viewing exercise as compulsory: Exercise, whether done to lose weight
or to maintain current health, should be fun. Granted, few people find
certain exercises, such as ab crunches, very fun at all..However, when
people who exercise heavily and regularly are doing so because they feel
they're obligated as opposed to doing so for fun, that's a sign of exercise
addiction.
Feeling down when you don't exercise: Chemically speaking, exercise
can be an exhilarating experience. That's because endorphins, peptides that.
have a pain-relieving effect on the brain, are released during exercise.
Upon release of those endorphins, the resulting feeling of elation can be
very addictive. On the flip side, if those endorphins aren't released (such as
when you miss a workout), exercise addicts will begin to have feelings of
depression and guilt and can even be very irritable to be around. Needing
that feeling of elation from exercise is potentially very damaging.
Priorities change: Any physician will admit physical health should be a
priority, and both diet and exercise play an integral role in reaching
optimal health. However, an exercise addict might begin to skip class,
work or put meaningful relationships on the back burner to spend more
time exercising..
Exercising in spite of a diminished physical condition: Sports
broadcasts are always enamored with athletes who "walk it off' and play
through seemingly harmful injuries. While finishing a set or even a
workout is one thing, to continue to workout despite injury, fatigue or
illness is not healthy. Working out while injured or sick is not a healthy
approach to fitness.
Ignoring advice of friends and loved ones: While exercise addiction is
not a recognized disorder, its characteristics do mirror those of many
recognized disorders. An exercise addict, for instance, will likely ignore
the advice of concerned friends and family who see a problem. This is
similar to most addictions, be it substance addiction or other behavioral
disorders.
What to Do?
Since it's not a recognized disorder, there's no set treatment for exercise
addiction. Perhaps the best thing an exercise addict can do is recognize that
their addiction to exercise is based in the brain. Lack of confidence and
poor body-nia'are,,\ o big concerns that-catalead to exercise addTifion.-
To combat thore, concentrate motre 'iigertiTg~and"feeling healthy as
opposed to looking healthy. In addition, take, days off and don't worry
about missing, a day or two at the gym, particularly if you are feeling
fatigued, sick or are injured.

Dear Classified Guys,
I don't get it. When I was younger, it
seemed rare when a house went up on
foreclosure. Usually the family that
lost it had a sense of embarrassment
for falling short on payments. To
some degree I think that fear was a
good thing. It encouraged people to
work hard and be responsible. But
today, it seems completely different.
My new neighbors, for example, are
living proof. When they moved in, we
went over to introduce ourselves.
They welcomed us and began sharing
their life story with my wife and kids. It
seems they let their old house go into
foreclosure because the value
dropped too low after a rezoning
issue. They just packed up and left.
Then they still found a bank to give
them a new mortgage for this house.
To them the foreclosure was no big
deal. They are really nice neighbors
and I'm glad they moved in, but at only
38-years-old I'm beginning to think I'm
already old-fashioned. And lately, I'm
seeing more and more classified ads
advertising foreclosures. Has the stig-
ma of losing your home really
changed?
Cash: The good part is that you have
new neighbors you like, regardless of


T


V 03/04/07
@2007 The Classified Guys


their financial situation. Hopefully
they'll stick with this house for a while.
Carry: You are correct in noticing that
things have changed when it comes to
foreclosures. With the escalating hous-
ing prices in most areas, the cost of own-
ing a home has risen dramatically.
Unfortunately with that, so has the rate
of foreclosures.
Cash: Unlike times in the past, many
people today carry some sort of debt. If
it is not a mortgage, then it's a car loan or
overextended credit cards. On average,
people are spending more than they can
afford.
Carry: Considering these circum-
stances, it's likely the stigma about
falling short on payments has changed.


Cash: Surprisingly in your neighbor's
case, their foreclosure could help their
financial distress. If the value of their
'home dropped well below the balance of
their mortgage, then walking away could
save them money in the long run. Their
new mortgage payment may be more
affordable to them. It's difficult to judge
without knowing all thedetails.
Carry: However, foreclosures do come
with consequences. They will damage
your credit rating and typically cause you
to pay higher interest rates on future loans.
Cash: At 38 years old, you probably
don't need to worry about being behind
the times quite yet, unless you ask your
children. To them, any parent is old-
fashioned.


Money Woes
For many people, it's a dream to own a
home. Unfortunately, that dream can get
cut short when financial disaster hits. If
you're a homeowner facing possible fore-
closure, you're not alone. In the past few
years, more properties have entered into
foreclosure than ever before. According
to RealtyTracT, there were almost
850,000 homes nationwide that entered
into foreclosure in 2005. In 2006 that
number increased 42% to just over 1.2
million properties. Today, the rate is
such that one in every 92 homes will end
up in foreclosure.
Metro
City living has its advantages, but for
some areas the cost can be high. Among
the 100 major metro areas, there are a
few that are seeing extremely high
amounts of foreclosures. Detroit, Fort
Lauderdale and Denver rank as the top
three cities with the highest foreclosure
rates. However, according to Coldwell
Banker's Annual Home Price Comparison
Index, MinotfND), Killen (TX) and
Arlington (TX) rank as the top three .
most affordable places to live. The aver-
age home prices are between $132,000 to
$141,000.

3644 or write: Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Cleaning House
When my wife and I put our house
up for sale, our teenage children were
not happy. Not because we were
moving, but because we told them
they had to keep their rooms clean for
prospective buyers.
For days they complained about
picking up clothes and making their
beds every morning. After a few
weeks, they eventually understood
how important it was to selling our
home.
We thought all was going well, until
one night at dinner % heen mi, son
spoke up, "I've been cleaning my,
room every day for six months. When
is this house going to sell?" My wife
and I looked at each other and decided
to be honest.
"Actually," she confessed, "We took
it off the market three months.ago!"
(Thanks to Peter N.)



This house sounds scary.

Its not about luck...

Secrets to great corned beef


The secret is simple: cook it long and slow,
tightly ,.,,. ,
* Corned beef brisket needs to gently sim-
mer. High temperatures can toughen the
meat. The steam created during simmer-
ing ensures fork-tender, moist and
flavorful beef.
* Do not boil. Boiling does not speed up
the cooking process; it only toughens
the beef. '
, No peeking! Be patient it cooks
unattended. Just check the meat at the
end of the suggested cooking time. .


a 'It's not necessary to turn a brisket during
cooking. Each lime the mo\er is lifted,
steam escapes and the tenderizing process
is interrupted. .
* To determine doneness, insert a utility
fork into the brisket; the beef is fork-;
tender when fork inserts w without resis-
tance and releases easily.
* Carve brisket across the grain into
thin slices for the most tender eating
experience.
