TRINITY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL


Records seized; hospital and clinic open


While Trinity Communi-
ty Hospital in Jasper re-
mains open, the citizens in
the county are unsure how
long it will remain.
On Thursday, March 8,
federal agents seized
records at the hospital and
the adjoining clinic, which
are owned by HC Health-
care, Inc. According to FBI
Agent Matt Pellegrino,
they were executing a
search warrant.
Agents from the FBI,
FDLE, IRS and the United
States Attorney's office
blocked off the doors to the
hospital and the clinic be-
fore 9 a.m. The emergency
room was open, but pa-
tients were turned away
from the clinic and visitors
were not allowed into the
hospital.
Throughout the day,
agents packed boxes with
hospital records., Around
2:30 p.m., an agent said
',' they had only about one-


third of the records packed
and they needed another
500 bankers boxes.
Agents also removed
boxes of records from the
Dedge Building on the cor-
ner of Hatley and 1st Av-
enue SW in Jasper, which
is also owned by the com-
pany and used for storage.
In the afternoon more
agents arrived from Live
Oak and Lake City, where
they had seized records at
two other clinics owned by
HC Healthcare, Inc. Ac-
cording to one agent, 300
agents were assigned to
carry out the search war-
rants.
HC Healthcare, Inc.
owns Trinity Community,
Hospital, Trinity Family
Clinic and TCH Clinical
Lab in Jasper, Trinity at
the Oaks in Live Oak, and
Quality First Care in Lake
City. Robert Krasnow is
the president of the com-
pany.


Jeff Westcott, FBI Media
Representative, said Thurs-
day the searches involved
multiple locations with
multiple agencies. He
would not name the loca-
tions or the agencies. He
said the warrants were the
result of an ongoing inves-
tigation, but he would not
give specifics of the
charges. Westcott said he
did not know when the in-
vestigation would be com-
plete. He also said the
search warrants would be
sealed and would not be
open to the public.
Major John Davis of the
Hamilton County Sheriff's
'Office notified., various
county officials early
Thursday morning about
the situation at the hospital
and clinic. Emergency
Management Services Di-
rector Roger Ehlert, Emer-
gency Medical Services,Di-
rector Edgar Lumpkin,
County Coordinator Bob


Poor and Board of County
Commissioners Chairman
Lewis Vaughn met that
morning to discuss how to
provide the best medical


care to the comm unityv
during the interruption of
service at the hospital.
Lumpkin contacted the
hospitals in Suwannee


County, Columbia County
and Lowndes County, Ga.
to request their assistance

Federal agents seized records of Trinity Community Hospital and three affiliated clinics

were executing search warrants, but would not specify what they were looking for.,

White Springs to host


As a newcomer to the journalism field, I knew I could depend
on Sue to help me in any way she could. Her guidance often
led me in the direction of a better story. As a fellow gardener,
I hope she enjoys this time in the sun (and the rain).

with any patient that
needed hospitalization.
According to Lumpkin all
the counties agreed to pro-
vide any help needed.
Community Health
Nursing Director Sharon
Gay said the Health De-
partment has seen an in-
crease in patients since
Thursday.
'We will try to accommo-
date all patients," Gay said.
"We will provide what care
we can but we are not set
up for emergency care or
as a hospital. We mainly
provide preventive care."
Vaughn called an emer-
gency meeting of the coun-
ty commissioners on Mon-
day, March 12, to address
concerns about the hospi-
tal. He said, "Although we
do not own the hospital,
we are trying to help the
community."
Lumpkin explained the
arrangement he had made
with Shands Live Oak,
Lake City Medical Center,
Shands Lake Shore (Lake
City) and South Georgia
Medical Center (Valdosta,.
Ga.).
McCormick suggested


contacting the Hamilton
County Memorial Hospital
Board of Trustees to see if
they could help. Commis-
sioner Leon McGauley
pointed out that the elected
officials do not control the
funds from the sale of the
hospital; the Trustees con-
trol the funds.
The Board of Trustees is
appointed by the governor
to administer funds from a
previous sale of the hospi-
tal, according to Angela
Miller, Chairman of the
Board. She said Tuesday
the funds are to be used to
provide healthcare needs
for the county.
Joyce Denham, vice-
president of Dominion
Management, was present
at the meeting. She said
her company was interest-
ed in buying the hospital
and the license. Dominion
Management builds and
purchases hospitals, nurs-
ing homes and assisted
living facilities, as well as
offers consulting and man-
agement services to health
care facilities.
Commissioner Mike
Adams.pointed out that "
the county doe. not'obwn'
the hospital or the license.


Commissioner Ronnie
Morgan suggested a repre-
sentative from the County
should contact Krasnow to
determine if he intends to
keep the hospital open.
Commissioner Randy
Ogburn concluded the
meeting by saying; "We are
working diligently with the
proper authorities to pro-
vide quality healthcare to
the community."
County Attorney John
McCormick met with Kras-
now Monday afternoon.
Krasnow said that he in-
tends to keep the hospital
open and operating, ac-
cording to McCormick.
Lumpkin said Tuesday
afternoon the administrator
of the hospital, Christina
Ortega, notified him the '
hospital and the clinic was
open for business and the
lab was in operation.
Ortega would not an-
swer any questions for The
Jasper News. Krasnowhad
not returned the newspa-
per's telephone calls by
press time.
Westcott said Tuesday
the investigation is still on-
going and he could not re-
lease any more informa-
tion.

community.
During her career she
has served as a correspon-
dent, reporter and editor
for several newspapers and
other publications. Lamb
served as the managing ed-
itor for the Suwannee De-
mocrat twice, including the
last 11 years.
Being a reporter wasn't
something Lamb set out to
do. It just happened. In
1978 when her son entered
kindergarten, she needed
something to do in the
mornings before picking
him up. One day Lamb
took a trip to the Suwannee
Democrat to visit her friend
Janie Murphy, then editor.
She asked her friend,
"Janie, I need something to
do in the morning. You got
anything?"
Murphy's response was
quick. "Yeah, I'll make a


reporter out of you," she
said.
Soon after, Lamb was
given her first writing as-
signment a feature story
about a man whose friends
were helping make his life-
long dream a reality. The
man, 70-something, was
sick and was not expected
to live long. His dream was
to float down the Suwan-
nee River on a raft, and his
friends were determined to
make that happen.
Lamb visited the man's
home and watched while
his friends built the raft in
his front yard. It was her
first chance to connect with
the community as a re-
porter. To touch a life she
may never'have been able
to know or reach.,
"I was hooked at that
point," she said of her first
few writing experiences.
After only three months
she received a phone call


from the editor of the Talla-
hassee Democrat with the of-
fer to be a correspondent.
The job as a freelancer
paid off in other ways by
giving Lamb the opportu-
nity to stay at home with
her four children.
Even as a young re-
porter, Lamb had learned
the art of developing the
trust of her sources. She '
quickly won tlme friendship
of law enforcement offi-
cials, attorneys and judges
and could often get the
scoop when many re-
porters were left searching
for answers.
Though the job forced
her to cover many stories
that seemed grim, Lamb
considered that an oppor-
tunity to make a difference
in the community. If it was
a court case or drug bust,
'she saw it as an opportuni-
ty to further justice or com-
fort those involved.


"There were times when
I walked to the back room
where the defendant was
and we hugged and cried
because it was a terrible
thing that this person was
going to prison," she said.
'I may have loved that per-
son very much and hated
to do it, yet I had to do my
job."
If it was a car crash in-
volving injury or death, she
saw it as an opportunity to
impact the lives of victims
and their families.
She said once the scanner,
sounded with news of a car
crash, "I immediately:
prayed for the people go-
ing to the accident, the peo-
ple at the accident and the
families of the people in the
accident ... that God might
spare the life of someone
who might die."
She would often say that
going to vehicle accidents
gave reporters a chance to
come in contact with those
they may never have met
otherwise to make a differ-
ence in a time of difficulty.
Lamb had many oppor-
tunities to cover positive
stories as well. There were
annual festivals, socials and
teas, high school gradua-
tions, parades and ball
games to name a few.
These gave her a chance tv


connect with the communi-
ty and assure them she
cared about Suwannee
County and its goings on.
She made sure civic and
other organizations were
well represented. Parades
and festivals always got a
prominent spot in the pa-
per. And Suwannee Coun-
ty athletes were highlight-
ed in the sport's section
each edition.
The job has given Lamb
the opportunity to meet
politicians, music stars and
locals who she considers
just as important. Among
the list of politicians are
Gov. Bob Graham, the late
State: Sen. Pete Skinner, the
late State Rep. Wayne
Hollingsworth, Gov. Char-
lie Crist and Congressman
Allen Boyd, to name a few.
The list of music stars she
has met is as long. Among
them are Toby Keith, John
Anderson, Dolly Parton,
John-Berry and Jerry Clow-
er.
Despite Lamb's numer-
ous list of VIPs she's had
the opportunity to meet,
she considers the average,
everyday people of Suwan-
nee County among her fa-
vorites to have known. To
her, covering pilau dinners
has been just as important
as covering politics.

She's constantly had her
finger on the pulse of the
community.
"Sue's been an asset to
this community," said
Mayor Sonny Nobles. "Not
only has she reported the
news, she has had a role in
influencing the direction
our community has taken
on many issues."
Lamb credited the people
of Suwannee County.and
God for her success.
"It was not about me but
about the community. But,
I couldn't have done it
Without the Lord," she
said.
"I'll miss all the wonder-
ful people I've worked
with. I appreciate all the
kindness people have
shared with me over the
years," she said.
Lamb is retiring to allow
time for family and garden-
ing. She will miss the
newspaper but will still be
around.
Lamb's last day on the
job was Friday, March 9,
when she was honored at a
retirement party at the Dix-
ie Grill in Live Oak. ,
The Democrat's new
managing editor is Robert
Bridges, who has been
working at Suwannee De-
mocrat since August.

Children's Home Society GPS celebrates Founders'Week


Dedicated to making


children's lives different


The following is the fifth
installment in a series of ar-
ticles on United Way agen-
des that operate in Hamil-
ton County.
Hope. Trust. Security.
Happiness. Stability. Op-
portunity. Children's Home
Society of Florida gives
these life-changing gifts to
children and families. Dedi-
cated to our mission of
"Embracing Children. In-
spiring Lives," Children's
Home Society makes a dif-
ference one life at a time:
redirecting a troubled teen
toward a future with real
possibilities; transforming
an addicted mother into a
productive parent; provid-
ing safe harbor for an
abused toddler; finding par-
ents for a neglected child; or
helping a family learn to
nurture one another.
Founded in 1902 to care
for orphans, Children's
Home Society is now
among the oldest, largest
and most respected private
nonprofits serving children
and families. Children's
Home Society now offers an
array of specialized services
designed to nurture chil-
dren and grow families.
Last year, they delivered
hope to more than 150,000
children and adults.
The Council on Accredi-
tation for Children and
Family Services has recog-
nized the Children's Home
Society's long, rich legacy
of changing lives for the
better for 26 years. Chil-
dren's Home Society is
committed to another cen-
tury of service thanks to a
caring and dedicated staff
of 2,300 who believe in chil-
dren, their promise and
their future.
In Hamilton County,
Children's Home Society
provides two very impor-


tant programs:
Adoption of foster chil-
dren: There are hundreds of
children in north central
Florida that are looking for
their forever families. The
Adoption Program pro-
vides specialized training
and preparation for parents
interested in adopting chil-
dren in foster care.
In-Home Family Support
Services (IHFSS) is a pro-
gram that provides in-home
counseling, parent educa-
tion and support services
for families where children
have been identified as be-
ing at risk for abuse or ne-
glect. Counselors actively
and passionately work with,
clients and follow up with
them well after their cases
are closed. The relation-
ships and trust that are de-
veloped throughout the
program leaves both em-
ployees and clients emo-
tionally touched for life.
For example, for more
than a year, David* was
fighting. Besides fighting
his drug addiction, he was
also involved in a custody
battle for his two-year-old
son, Christian*. David was
referred to Children's
Home Society's IHFSS pro-
gram to prevent the possi-
bility of abuse or neglect to-
wards Christian.
With the help of his IHF-
SS Counselor, David com-
pleted all the necessary
counseling and screening
required. He has remained
drug-free and is engaged to
a young lady who has al-
ready taken the steps to re-
quest parental guidance
counseling, since Christian
will be her first child.
During his time with
Children's Home Society,
David has not only devel-
oped a better understand-
ing of what healthy parent-


ing is all about, but he has
also learned about giving
back. Since the closing of
his case, David was granted
reunification with his son.
"I am so proud of David
and his accomplishments,"
said his counselor. "He
grew so much during his
time with us, and I am con-
fident that the knowledge
he and his fiance have
gained will result in not
only superior parenting,
but also in a higher degree
of satisfaction from life."
Although the Children's
Home Society provides a
variety of family support
programs to the communi-
ty, the agency uses the
funds it receives from the
United Way of Suwannee
Valley community
fundraising campaign to
support the family visita-
tion center.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley is a volunteer-driven
community impact organi-
zation that strives to ad-
dress health and human
service needs in three focus
areas: ensuring our chil-
dren's future; furnishing
food, shelter and safety;
and promoting indepen-
dence and wellness. Our lo-
cal United Way addresses
these focus areas through
22 affiliated health and hu-
man service agencies, of
which 17 provide services
to Hamilton County.

changed for privacy.

Economics and smoking


The most fundamental
principle of economics is
the law of demand, which
postulates that the higher
the cost of a behavior, the
less people will do of it,
while the lower the cost,
the more people will do of
it. The law of demand ap-
plies to any behavior, and
I'm going to apply it to
anti-smoking behavior.
First, let's get the health is-
sue out of the way because
it has no relevancy to the
particular principle under
examination, which is how
people respond to the cost
of something.
The cost to nonsmokers
to impose their will on
smokers, say, in a restau-
rant, bar or airplane, is

zero, or close to it. They
just have to get the legisla-
ture to do their bidding.
When the cost of some-
thing is zero, there's a ten-
dency for people to take
too much of it. You say,
"Williams, in my book,
there can never be too
much smoke-free air!"
Here's a little test. Say your

car's out of gas and stuck in
a blizzard. You wave me
down for assistance. I say,
"I'll be glad to give you a
lift to safety, but I'm smok-
ing in my car." How likely
is it that you'll turn down
my assistance in an effort
to avoid tobacco smoke?
You might be tempted to
argue, "That's different."
It's not different at all. The
cost of a smoke-free envi-
ronment is not what you're
willing to pay.
Say you don't permit
smoking in your house.
When I visit, I offer to pay
you $100 for each cigarette,
you permit me to smoke.
Instantaneously, I've raised
the cost of your maintain-
ing a smoke-free environ-
ment. Retaining smoke-
free air in your home costs
the sacrifice of $100. Of
course, I could offer you
higher amounts, and eco-
nomic theory predicts that
at some price, you'll con-
clude your 100 percent
srmoke-free air isn't worth
it.
Air that's either 100 per-
cent smoke-filled or 100
percent smoke-free is prob-
ably sub-optimal. At zero
prices there will either be
too much smoking or too
little smoking. The prob-
lem in our society is that
laws have created too
much smoke-free air. To a
large degree, it's the fault
of smokers, who haven't
created a cost to smoke-free
air.
You say, "What do you
mean, Williams?" Here's
an example: A number of
years ago, a congressman


(who shall remain name-
less) invited me to give a
lecture to some staffers. I
asked him if it was OK for
me to smoke during my
lecture, whereupon he told
me about Congress' no-
smoking rule. I told him
that if I weren't allowed to
smoke, I wouldn't give the
lecture. The congressman
promised he'd tell the
guard that I could smoke,
and I gave the lecture.
There have been other oc-
casions where I've attached
a price to smoke-free air. I
fully recognize that people
and organizations have
their rules, but I also have
mine.
My rule is by no means
absolute. There are in-
stances where I put up with
zero-priced smoke-free air,
and there are other in-
stances where I don't. It all
depends on the cost to me.
I think other smokers.
ought to adopt the same
agenda. Say you're asked
to do some volunteer work.
You might answer, "Yes, if
I'm allowed to -smoke."
This strategy might also be
a nice way to get out of do-
ing something without say-
ing no. Just ask whether
smoking is permitted.
The economic lesson to
extract from all of this is
that zero prices lead to sub-
optimal outcomes, and it
doesn't just apply to the
smoking issue. How would
you like zero prices at the
supermarket or clothing
store? If there were, what
do you think you'd see on
the shelves when you ar-
rived? If you said, "Noth-
ing, because people would
take too much," go to the
head of the class.

Mercie Lee

Solomon

Howell

On May 5, 1932, Mercie
Lee Solomon Howell's
birth in Blackshear, Geor-
gia, brought great joy to her
parents, Joe and Ivey
Solomon. She spent her
childhood in Jasper and
Sarasota and attended pub-
lic schools in both areas.
Mert, as she was affection-
ately called, developed a
great work ethic.that con-
tinued throughout her life-
time.
Her parents, a brother
Earnest Solomon; a sister
Lillie Mae Jenkins, and a
daughter Sonja Jean Bailey,
preceded her,in death.
She was married to Mert
(Bubba) Howell Jr., for 49
years and they reared eight
children. Their home was
always a safe haven for
grandchildren, nieces,
nephews, relatives and
friends of their children.
She was Mrs. Howell,
Ms. Mert, Merk, My Mama,
Mother, Granny, and Aunt
Mert but most of all, she
was a child of the King.
Recognizing she needed an


anchor, Sister Howell ac-
cepted Christ as her per-
sonal.Savior many years
ago. She was a devout
member of Williams Taber-
nacle Methodist Church
and served faithfully until
her death. She worked tire-
lessly for the church.
Sister Howell could
spend hours on the phone
talking to her children, sis-
ters and friends. The chil-
dren depended upon her to
provide the news updates
in Jasper.
Sister Howell's teachings
focused on love and devo-
tion to the .family. She
taught it was important for
her children to be obedient
and she did not spare the
rod. She called it tough
love and even quoted the
Bible while she punished
them.
Sister Howell instilled
her work ethic in her chil-
dren and she demanded
that they do their best in
school and life. She was so
thankful for God's bless-
ings, but her proudest mo-
ments were attending the
graduations of her children
and grandchildren. It
brought her great joy to
spend time with all of her
children and offspring. She
was so proud of them and
the opportunities they af-
forded her.
Mert was an enthusiastic
fisherman and she enjoyed
spending hours on a fish
creek with family and
friends. She had a genuine
green thumb and loved
gardening and taking pride
in her flowers and other
plants.
A few months ago, "her
house of clay" started to
decay but Sister Howell did
not fret. She simply placed
it in the .Master's care.1
There were good days and
bad days but she found
comfort in the love of her
children and friends who
took such good care of her.
After stays in and out of the
hospital, God moved and
allowed His child to return


-ram


to her beloved home. She
was so happy to be home
and so grateful to have her
children and friends visit-
ing back and forth. Still,
this faithful servant was
tired and God saw that she
needed rest. On Saturday
evening, February 24, 2007,
God called Sister Howell
home.
Her memory will always
remain in the hearts of her
husband: Mert Howell Jr.;
children: Ruthetta (Sandy
Sr.) Mitchell, JoAnne (C.C.)
Cunningham, Tallahassee,
Florida; Alonza (Sonia)
Solomon, Stone Mountain,
Georgia; Gloria Solomon,
Junction City, Kansas;
James (Arlene) Howell;
Mary (Fred) Pierce, Tampa,

grandchildren, fifteen

pily anticipated great-
grand due in March; a host
of nieces, nephews, rela-
tives, and friends, and spe-
cial friends of the family:

Jerry and Margaret Smith.
All were very precious to
her.

vices.

Girl Scouts celebrate 95 years


The Girl Scouts was offi-
cially started on March 12,
1912, by Juliette Gordon
Low in Savannah, Ga.,
with 18 girls. As of today
there are over 3.8 million
registered Girl Scouts 2.8
million girls and 936,000
adults, from ages five and
up. Our local Girl Scouts
made posters to be placed
in our local school to honor
Girl Scout week.
The girls worked very
hard on cookies sales this
year. They would like to
thank the community for
helping them achieve their
goal. They would also like
to thank Jamie Lessman for
allowing them to have
booth sales at Foodway.
The girls sold 2751 boxes of
cookies and earned enough


money go camping, bowl-
ing and take a trip to Sea
World.
The Girl Scouts of Jasper
needs adults to help. If you
have an interest in helping
mold our future leaders
contact Mary Check-Cason
at 1-866-231-8573.
The Girl Scout
Promise
On my honor, I will
try:
To serve God and my
country,
To help people at all
times,
And to live by the
Girl Scout Law.

Courage Confidence Character


One of our local Girl Scouts, Dixie Boston, age nine, and
her mother Peggy Boston, both of Jasper, put together a
community wide clean up of Suwannee Springs, on Mar-
tin Luther King Day. Dixie Wanted not only to clean up her
community, but to honor a man who helped make the
world a better place for so many people. She sent out five
hundred fliers for this event. Twelve other community
members showed up to help her, including two other Girl
Scouts. Dixie provided trash bags and gloves for everyone
who came out to help. Thirteen industrial size bags of
trash were collected from the riverbeds, parking lot and
waking trails of Suwannee Springs. (Photo Submitted)

ther/daughter ball that was held in Live Oak in honor of
Juliette Low the founder of Girl Scouts. (Photo Submitted)

World Thinking Day is the birthday of Robert Baden-Pow-
ell. He and his sister started the first troop of Boy Scouts
and Girl Guides (what Girl Scouts are called in other
countries). On Thinking Day, Feb. 22, each troop learns
about the culture and foods of a country or state where
other Girl Scouts or,Girl Guides live. Each service unit
(our service unit includes 20 troops in Hamilton and
Suwannee county) set up. a booth on what they have
learned about their country/state and a type of food from
that country/state. The girls go to the different booths pur-
chasing the food at the booth for five cents and learn
something about that country/state. At the end of the day
all the money that is collected is put together to be given
to the Juliette Low's Foundation to help under privileged
Girl Scouts. This year our state was Tennessee. (Photo Sub-

Hunter safety grads get


free NWTF membership


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), the National
Wild Turkey Federation
(NWTF) and Bass Pro Shops
have a sweet deal for young
hunters who pass a hunter
safety course by June 20.
The first 2,000 hunter safe-
ty graduates under age 16
will receive a free subscrip-
tion to "JAKES/Xtreme" or
"JAKES" magazines. These
quarterly publications come
with membership in the
JAKES or Xtreme JAKES
program and are loaded
with entertaining and edu-
cational articles about
wildlife, conservation, the
shooting sports and the
great outdoors. The maga-
zine also includes informa-
tion about academic scholar-
ships, chances to win a con-
servation contest and prizes.
"This is a great way to en-
hance our Hunter Safety
program while encouraging
literacy and life-long activi-
ties in the great outdoors,"


said Bill Cline, FWC's
hunter safety section leader.
To sweeten the deal even
further, the Florida Chapter
of the NWTF is providing
one grand prize winner a
Florida turkey hunt. In addi-
tion, the grand prize winner
will receive a new turkey
shotgun and all the gear
needed to go turkey hunt-
ing, courtesy of Bass Pro
Shops in Orlando.
A hunter safety course is
required for everyone born
on or after June 1, 1975, be-
fore they can purchase a
Florida hunting license. The
free, 16-hour course does
more than teach how to han-
dle firearms. Topics include
outdoor ethics, wildlife
identification and manage-
ment, survival, field first
aid, firearm laws and the
Florida Wildlife Code. The
basics of archery and black
powder (muzzleloading
gun) hupting.also are part of
the course, and for those in-
terested in bow-hunting cer-


tification, a limited number
of advanced archery courses
also are available.

Saltwater anglers invited to enter photo contest


Remember to take your
camera the next time you
go saltwater fishing. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) invites you to par-
ticipate in the new Saltwa-
ter Ethical Angler Photo
Contest.
All you need to do is
send a picture of you or
someone else properly re-
leasing or handling a salt-
water fish, and you may be
featured in an upcoming
FWC publication. To be
considered, you must han-
dle your fish using recom-
mended catch-and-release
techniques.
An ethical angler handles
his catch with wet hands
only, is careful not to poke
fingers into gills, and fully
supports the body weight
of the fish by cradling it
horizontally. Large fish


should not be taken aboard
a boat, because removing it
from the water can injure
the fish.
Contest guidelines and a
catch-and-release brochure
that describes techniques


you can use to increase sur-
vival of released fish can be
found at
MyFWC.com / marine.
Submit your ethical an-
gling photographs to Ethi-
calAngler@MyFWC.com.

re you ready to re-
lay? We certainly
hope so. We are
looking forward to an
evening, starting early Fri-
day, at Central Hamilton
Elementary School/old
high school parking lot. It
is great to be able to have a
good time and at the same
time support a worthwhile
cause. Do you want to re-
member, with your pres-
ence (and your donations)
someone who has sur-
vived cancer, or who has
lost the battle? If so, be
there.
If you have not yet made
a contribution, it is not too
late. There will be lumi-
naries available to be light-
ed at dark, that may be
bought and placed around
the track in memory or
honor of someone. If not
making a contribution,
come and enter into the
festivities offered, to honor
those who have been
through treatments, suf-
ferings, and possibly not
survived the fight, or espe-
cially those who have sur-
vived. There will be some-
thing, for everyone. Your
presence will be an impor-
tant part of this event.
Come whenever, and stay


as long as you can. There
will even be some who
plan to stay all night.
Hope to see you there!
The VFW is offering
their special barbecue din-
ners this evening. We al-
ways look forward to their
good food, prepared by
members and their
helpers. A great time for
eating, fun and fellowship;
hope to see you there, also.
Again we are reminded
that there is always some-
thing happening in Hamil-
ton County.
We have been noticing
activity at the front of the
Hamilton County Court-
house Annex, in front of
the former Hamilton
County High School. I like
this better than saying the
old High School. I remem-
ber only too well when it
was built and opened. I do
not need to keep being re-
minded of how time is
passing.
So many changes, trying
to remember the good
things that have happened
in our cities and county.
Hope now to be able to
soon say that my family
has been in Jasper, Hamil-
ton County, for 50 years;
hope that doesn't make


you feel too old also. You
may have heard me say
this before, I do not think
there has been a moment
of regret, and we thank Dr.
Billy Mitchell and his fam-
ily for making this possi-
ble, as well as others, and
those of you who have
brought us into your lives,
families and church, as
well as other activities of
the community.
There is more news
about our people in the
county, but we cannot get.
them together at this time,
so 'will hopefully have
more personal news of
families next week. Thank
you for your remarks re-
garding your reading of
mine and Johnny's
columns.
I am trying to get togeth-
er some of the changes in
our area in the first 50
years, and will probably
be calling on you to help
me. That will be a mile-
stone for us and hopefully
will bring memories back
to you.
Call me, or write. I
promise to get caught up
on my telephone calls and
emails.

Kelley reunion held at Selph Farms


The children of the late Pennywell
and Ora Lee Kelley of Live Oak held
a family reunion on Saturday, Feb. 3,
2007 at the Selph Farms in Hamilton
County. The event was hosted by the
family of the late Cleveland Selph,
Sr. of Jennings.
Approximately 68 direct descen-
dants of the Pennywell-Kelley family
were in attendance and enjoyed a
day of reminisencing old times, food,
fun and fellowship. An outdoor bar-
beque consisting of roasted pork,


chicken and Selph farms sausage,
along with all the trimmings and
desserts, was served.
Despite the cold weather, it was an
exciting day for the young and
young at heart.
Grandchildren and great-grand-
children enjoyed meeting new
cousins, climbing and swinging from
the big oak trees playing tag around
the fish ponds, touring the Selph hog
farm, and holding the baby pigs. The
day ended with a bonfire, soccer


game, and shared memories of the
"good old days."
The sentiments of the family were
best expressed in Sunday School the
next day by Marlee and Logan Kel-
ley.
"We are thankful for the family re-
union and hope we can have one
every year," they said. Marlee and
Logan are the twin daughters of
Greg and Chris Kelley of Spring
Creek and granddaughters of Wes
and Janice Kelley of Madison.

Protecting -
Your Trees
And Shrubs
f


By Lance Walheim
Bayer Advanced
Garden Expert

Planting new trees and
shrubs can enhance the
beauty and value of a
.home. The Lawn Institute
says homeowners may re-
alize a 15-percent increase
in property value from a
well-maintained land-
scape.
SAlso, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy says prop-
erly placed trees and
shrubs can dramatically
lower air conditioning and
heating bills.
Keeping trees and
shrubs healthy can save
homeowners hundreds or
even thousands of dollars
if the cost for a profession-
al tree service to cut down
even one tree is consid-
ered.
Here are some tips for
maintaining healthy trees
and shrubs:
Apply three to four inch-
es of organic mulch
around the base of shrubs
and young trees to cool the
soil, reduce weeds and
conserve moisture.
Water properly. If the


top three to six inches of
soil is dry, it's usually time
to water. Be sure to water
deeply.
Thin branches to en-
hance the natural shape.'
Do not cut major tree
limbs, leaving large stubs.
Control pests. Be aware
that damaged or discol-
ored leaves, dying, limbs
and oozing wounds could
be signs that the tree is un-


- -


der attack from insects or
disease..
Preventing insect dam-
age is better than dealing
with insect problems. A
product called Bayer Ad-
vanced Garden Tree and
Shrub Insect Control is
said to protect against
aphids, borers, Japanese
and leaf beetles, leafhop-
pers, leaf miners, scales,
thrips and others.
One application protects
for up to 12 months, which
is longer than many other
products. There is no need
for spraying. Just mix with
water and pour around the
base of the tree or shrub.

Trojan



II4News


By Jonathan Banks


IW welcome to this
week's edition of
the Trojan News.
The major emphasis this
week is on the fierce FCAT
that students have been
taking during the last two
weeks. I also want to ap-
plaud the great efforts of
our Boys' Varsity Basket-
ball team and. share addi-
tional events at HCHS. So,
keep reading. I hope you
enjoy.
Students from grades
three through ten through-
out the county and the state
began taking the Florida
Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test also known as
the FCAT. Students tested
on Feb. 26 and 27 and re-
sumed testing on March 5
and 7. Students who were
absent on the test dates
should plan to make-up the
test on the scheduled re-
take dates. Good luck to all
students and I hoped
everyone killed the
"FCAT."
Not to brag, but Hamil-
ton County High School
had an excellent varsity
basketball team this year.
With their mind blowing
record of 22-7, the Trojans
won District and took it all
the. way with a fight to Re-
gional finals. The team was
one of the most amazing
that I have seen in all my
years of Hamilton County
basketball.
Coach Patrick Murphy
was very proud of his team
and especially with the
boys having the opportuni-
ty and. experience of play-
ing in Regional competi-
tion. He felt they had an ex-
cellent season, and is look-
ing forward to another
great year of Trojan Basket-
ball in 2008!
Yearbooks, yearbooks
and more yearbooks are on
sale. This year's theme is
"Trojan Fever, 2007 De-
grees and Rising." The cost
of the yearbook is $35 and
to buy one, see Ms. Tara
Lowe in Room 218 at
HCHS.
I hope you all enjoyed
this edition on Trojan
News. Have a great week-
end, and until next time,
"Go, Trojans!"

Women's


day out


The local chapter of the Na-
tional Wild Turkey Federation
will host a Women in the Out-
doors event Friday-Saturday,
March 16-17 at The Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park and
Campground, US 129 North,
Live Oak.
"Our program is about en-
couraging women to try new
outdoor activities in a safe en-
vironment that makes them
feel at ease," said Rob Keck,
NWTF CEO. "This event is
also a chance for women of all
walks of life-singles, moms,
daughters, young and old-to
spend a weekend outdoors,
away from home, hanging out
and having fun."
Women in the Outdoors
uses expert instructors to teach
outdoor skills using a hands-
on approach. Events are held
across the country and often
include activities involving
fishing, recreational shooting,
camping and boating. By also
encouraging a greater aware-
ness of the country's natural
resources, events create out-
door convictions that are im-
portant to the future success of
wildlife conservation and the
preservation of North Ameri-
cais hunting traditions.
At this particular event we
will offer classes in the follow-
ing: archery, canoe/kayak,
skeet shooting, introduction to
handguns, dutch oven cooking,
outdoor crafts, birdwatching,
fishing, horseback riding and
self-defense for.women.
According to a recent study
commissioned by the NWTF'
and funded through a grant
from the US Fish and Wildlife
Service, program participants
have increased their involve-
ment by more than 40 percent
in fishing, hiking, backpack-
ing, camping, wildlife habitat,
hunting, shooting, birdwatch-
ing and outdoor photography.
(Checkout the study, news re-
lease and photos at
"http://www.nwtf.org/women_
inthe_outdo6rs_report.html)."
The combination of spon-
sorship and local chapter sup-
port allows the NWTF to offer
these programs at a low cost to
participants. The cost of at-


tending each event includes a
membership in the Women in
the Outdoors program and a
subscription to Women in the
Outdoors magazine, the Feder-
ation's full-color, quarterly
publication with articles and
information on various out-
door adventures and activities.
"The Women in the Outdoors
program allows the NWTF to
reach an entirely new audi-
ence, one that has the potential
to benefit conservation ef-
forts," said Keck. "It's an op-
portunity for women to find
great satisfaction and enjoy-
ment in the outdoors."

tact Patty Molinaro, 904-210-

About Women in the Out-
doors
Part of what has made the
NWTF such a successful hunt-
ing and conservation organi-
zation is its willingness to in-
volve family. In the late 1990s,
the'Federation began its
Women in the Outdoors pro-
gram. The intent was to pro-
vide interactive outdoor op-
portunities (including fishing,
hiking, mountain biking,
shooting, hunting and garden-
ing) for women nationwide.
That mission and much more
have been accomplished. To-
day, nearly 44,000 women are
members of this program, and
events are held in every U.S.
state and several Canadian
provinces.
About the NWTF
In 1973, when the National
Wild Turkey Federation was
founded, there were an esti-
mated 1.3 million wild turkeys
and 1.5 million turkey hunters.
Thanks to the work of wildlife
agencies and the NWTF's
many volunteers and partners,
today there are more than 7
million wild turkeys and nearly
3 million turkey hunters. Since
1985, the NWTF and its coop-
erators have spent more than
$230 million upholding hunt-
ing traditions and conserving


more than 11.3 million acres
of wildlife habiat.
The NiUTF is a nonprofit or-
aii:anioni with 545,000 mem-
bers in 50 states. Canada,
AMeuco and 14 other foreign
countries. It supports scientific
wildlife management on pub-
lic. private and corporate
lands as well as wild turkey
hunting as a traditional North
American sport.

Florida Park Service launches destination



maps of Suwannee River Wilderness Trail


National Geographic
Map provides physical
and recreational details
of the Trail

The Florida Park Services recently un-
veiled a multimedia map system providing
detailed information about the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail. The Park Service
contracted with National Geographic to
produce both print and electronic destina-
tion maps providing comprehensive infor-
mation on physical details and activities*
along the trail.
"The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is
an exceptional outdoor recreational experi-
ence that draws thousand of visitors to one
of Florida's most renowned rivers and
boost local economies," said Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection
(DEP) Secretary Colleen M. Castille. "The
detailed print and interactive electronic
maps will help promote one of the state's
most historic rivers, scenic state parks and
North Florida's rural cultural heritage."
Developed during the last two years, the
destination maps provide information
about the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail, including the multitude of recre-
ational opportunities offered along the
170-mile trail. The companion maps are a
part of the National Geographic geo-
tourism series and available both on-line


and by request.
"The destination map encourages veteran
adventurers and newcomers alike to come
explore the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail," said Florida Park Service Director
Mike Bullock. '"Visitors can plan and en-
hance their Suwannee River Wilderness
adventure by utilizing these comprehensive
resources."
Initiated by Governor Jeb Bush in 2002,
The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a
partnership program between DEP, the
Suwannee River Water Management Dis-
trict and businesses and communities along
the river. The trail provides visitors an op-
portunity to navigate the world-famous
Suwannee with convenient rest stops locat-
ed at one-day intervals. From tents and
cabins to motels, hotels and bed & break-
fast inns, eight regional 'hubs' with exist-
ing infrastructure and recreational opportu-
nities will offer various resting and lodging
choices along the way.
Florida's state park system is one of the
largest in the country with 159 parks span-
ning more than 725,000 acres and more
than 100 miles of sandy white beach. From
swimming and diving in rivers and springs
to birding and fishing or hiking and riding
on natural scenic trails, Florida's state
parks offer year-around outdoor activities
for all ages. Battle reenactments and Na-
tive American festivals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art shows, museums
and lighthouses offer a window into Flori-
da's cultural heritage.

Public Service Announcement No. 3


Dealing with


debt collectors


Once you have decided which
debts you are able to pay and
which will have to wait, the next
step is to deal with the collectors
that aren't being paid first.
How should I deal with debt
collectors?
Don't let them pressure you
into making the wrong choices
about what to pay first. For ex-
ample, explain to the debt collec-
tor, "I have to pay my rent and-
utility bills first I have been re-
cently laid-off; when I get a new
job I will do my best to meet my
debt"
What can a debt collector real-
ly do?
A debt collector collecting a
debt of the creditor can do little
more than demand payment. If
the creditor has not taken your
house, car, or other property as
collateral on a loan, then legally
the creditor can only do three
things:
1. Stop doing business with
you.
2. Report your default to a
credit bureau (which will be un-
avoidable when you cannot pay
most of your debts on time.)
3. Sue you in court. Although
the threat to sue you may be very
upsetting, it is not nearly as seri-
ous as you might think. Many
creditors do not follow through
on their threats. If they do sue
you, you can represent yourself,
and explain why you cannot or
should not pay. After a period of
time, the creditor may obtain a
court judgment, but his judgment
still does not force you to pay the
debt. It only give the creditor the
right to try to seize part of your
wages or particular property. If
you do not own very much or if
you do not earn very much, cred-
itors will not be able to seize any
of your property or wages even
though they have a court judg-
S I I


ment against you. Only if you are .
hiding assets can a creditor seize
wages or property before a judg-
ment; they cannot send the con-
sumer to jail or send the con-
sumer's children to foster care.
How can I stop being ha-
rassed?
Federal law prohibits harass-
ment by collection agencies or
attorneys. For example, they may
not contact you at unreasonable
hours: before 8 a.m. or after 9
p.m., unless you give your per-
mission. They also may not use
obscene or profane language or
call you constantly to annoy you.
Some states also have laws that
provide similar protections
against creditors.
Consumers being harassed by
debt collectors should follow
these eight steps:
1. Head off harassment before
it starts. When financial setbacks
prevent, you form paying all of.
your bills, call the creditor and
explain your situation. Explain
that you have to pay the landlord
and utilities first, and that you
will pay your other bills when
you can. Don't over promise: It's
better to be realistic about your
prospects for paying. By contact-
ing 'the creditor first, you may
avoid having the debt tumed over
to a collection agency, which will
usually be less flexible than the
creditor in working out a pay-
ment plan.
2. Write a cease letter. If ex-
plaining the situation doesn't
stop collection efforts, the sim-
plest way to stop contacts is to
write the collector a cease letter.
Federal law requires collection
agencies to stop dunning after
they receive a written request to
stop. It's a good idea to include in
the letter why you can't pay right
now and what your expectations
are for the furfire, though this is,


not necessary. You should also
note in the letter any billing er-
rors and/or abusive tactics debt
collectors have used in their con-
tacts with you. Be sure to keep a
copy of the letter. Following is a
sample letter-

Date
Name of collection agency
Address
Dear Sir:
I am writing to request that
you stop communication to me
about my account number __
with (name of creditor) as re-
quired by the Fair Debt Collec-
tion Practices Act U.S.C.
1692c(c):
I will take care of this matter
when I can. Your cooperation
will be appreciated.
Very truly yours,
Your name
Your address

3. Have a lawyer write a cease
letter. You don't need a lawyer to
write a cease letter, but if your
letter does niot stop the harass-
ment, a letter from a lawyer usu-
ally, will. Also, collection agen-
cies must stop contacting your
once they know you are repre-
sented by a lawyer.
4. Work out a payment plan, If
you decide to work out a pay-
ment plan, you should only agree
to a realistic plan, preferably one
that significantly reduces the
debt. In making any agreement,
keep in mind your priorities:
don't make even small payments
if the payments would prevent
you from paying your mortgage
or rent, food or utilities.
5. Complain about billing er-
rors. Collection letters are some-
times in error. If a letter contains
a mistake, you should write and
request a correction (and keep a
copy of your request.) If you dis-


pute the debt in writing within 30
days of your receiving notice of
the right to dispute, the collection
agency must stop collection ef-
forts while it investigates. If the
account is an open-end account,
like a credit card, you can dispute
a charge within 60 days of re-
ceiving the bill.
6. Complain to a government
agency. Mail any complaint you
have about a collector's conduct
to the Federal Trade Commis-
sion, Bureau of Consumer Pro-
tection, Washington, D.C. 20580,
to the consumer protection divi-
sion within your state attorney
general's office, and to any local
office of consumer protection.
You should be' able to obtain
these addresses from your local
Better Business Bureau or office
of consumer affairs. Send a copy
of theletter to the collector.
7. File bankruptcy. Filing
bankruptcy will instantly and ef-
fectively stop all debt collection
of any kind. Often simpler and
less expensive action will resolve
debt collection harassment, but
bankruptcy should not be a casu-
al decision, and a competent pro-
fession should be consulted be-
fore any bankruptcy case is initi-
ated. .
8. Sue the debt collector. The
federal Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act allows you to sue
.debt collectors which violate the
Act's provisions. Statutory dam-
ages up to $1,000, actual dam-
ages, costs and attorney's fees are
available to persons who bring
successful actions. Consult an at-
torney to discuss such litigation.
The foregoing advice is pro-
vided by lawyers at Three Rivers
Legal Services, Inc., a non-profit
corporation which receives funds
from various local agencies and
individuals, as well as from the
federal government through Le-'


gal Services Corporation (LSC).
For specific advice on your par-
ticular situation, they suggest that
you consult with a lawyer of your
choosing. If you cannot afford a


lawyer, you may call your local
legal services office at 386-752-
5960 in Lake City to find out if
you qualify for free legal assis-
tance.


CONSUMER ALERT

Attorney General McCollum warns


consumers of tax
As Flondians prepare to file
their annual tax returns, Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum
recently warned consumers
about potential scams which
are prevalent during tax sea-
son.
Among the most common
of these is "phishing," which
occurs when individuals pose
as Internal Revenue Service
(lRS) employees and send
consumers e-mails seeking
personal information, alleged-
ly for the purpose of process-
ing refunds. E-mail headers
generally appear official, with
language such as "Refund No-
tice" or other innocuous sub-
ject lines. These communica-
tions seek to lure taxpayers
into supplying names, social
security numbers, credit card
information and other person-
al identification information.
The IRS does not send e-mails
asking for personal infomia-
non to process refunds. Con-
sumers can visit the agency's
Web site at
http:'//www.IRS.gov and click
on "Where's My Refund" to
check on the status of their re-
funds.
Another scheme which of-
ten surfaces during tax season
is an e-mail campaign from
counterfeit chanties seeking
contributions. The simulated
"charities" then claim the con-
tributions will reduce the con-
sumers' tax liability. Social
Security refund scams are also
common, which are based on
offers of social security tax re-
funds, even though no such
refund exists. In this scheme,
an offer is made to file the re-


time scams
find for a fee to the consumer
of which a percentage of the
anticipated refund is requested
up front.
Attorney General McCol-
lum offered the following rec-
ommendations to consumers
in order for them to avoid
falling prey to tax time scam-
mers:
Never give out personal
identification information to
anyone who is soliciting mon-
ey.
Do not respond to e-mails
asking for information relat-
ing to refunds. The IRS's Web
site is the legitimate source for
checking on refund status.
Do not give third parties
money for income taxes on
prizes. A legitimate prize dis-
tributor must send prize recip-
ients the IRS form 1099
which states the value of the
prize won and must be filed
with a consumer's tax return.
Research charities before
sending them money and do
not respond to e-mail solicita-
tions for money. The Better
Business Bureau has a charity
research page at
http://www.bbb.org which
helps identify legitimate char-
ities.
Do not let anyone purport-
ing to be an agent for the IRS
into your home unless he or
she has proper identification.
Consumers. who believe
they may be victims of fraud
may contact thei Attorney
General's fraud hotlhe toll-
free at 866-9-NO-SCAM
(866-966-7226) or file a com-
plaint on-line at
http://myfloridalegaLcom.

For many college students,
spring break at the beach is the
.reward for months of study dur-
ing the long, cold winter. As ir-
resistible as it may 'seem to
overindulge in sun and fun,
don't break up the party with a
trip to the emergency depart-
ment.
American College ,of Emer-
gency Physicians (ACEP) Presi-
dent Dr. Brian Keaton says
emergency physicians see many
serious injuries during spring
break, and advance planning
and common sense should be as
essential to a student's travel
plans as a bikini and a boogie
board.
"The fastest way to ruin a
good vacation is to overdo it,
whether that means excessive
sun exposure, sports injuries, or
overindulgence in alcohol," said
Dr. Keaton. "Every year, emer-
gency physicians treat college
students who have left good
judgment behind, along with
their textbooks."
So don't let the pleasure turn
into pain:
If you are under the legal
drinking age, don't drink alco-
hol.
If you are of legal drinking
age, drink responsibly, and nev-
er combine alcohol with driving,
boating or swimming.
Do not get into a car with a
driver who has been drinking.
Wear a life jacket at all times
when boating.
Wear sunscreen with the
maximum level of sun protec-
tion, and plan outdoor activities
for before 10 a.m. and after 3
p.m.
Drink plenty of water, espe-
cially when in the sun or per-
spiring heavily.
Take it easy with athletic ac-
tivities after an inactive winter
and get training from a profes-


sional, particularly for water
sports such as surfing and water-
skiing.
Swim with a buddy, even if
you -are very experienced; be
aware of any rip tides in your
area and learn how to swim out
of one should you get caught.
Get enough sleep, as many
bad decisions are the result of
sleep deprivation.
The best protection .against
sexually transmitted diseases
and unintended pregnancies is
-abstinence. If you do have sex,
use a condom.
If traveling with a group, re-
sist the urge to "go along to get
along" if risky activities are sug-
gested.
Don't visit unfamiliar areas
by yourself, especially at night.
Take medications and proof
of insurance with you.
Program your cell phone
with I-C-E -(in case of emer-
gency), and identify a person
and phone number that emer-
gency medical services can con-
tact just in case you do end up at
the hospital and cannot speak for
yourself.
"Emergency physicians were
all college students too at one
time," said Dr. Keaton. "We just
want you to enjoy your vacation
without a trip to the hospital."
ACEP is a national medical
specialty society representing
emergency medicine with more
than 25,000 members. ACEP is
committed to advancing emer-
gency care through continuing
education, research and public
education. Headquartered in
Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53
chapters representing each state,
as well as Puerto Rico and the
District of Columbia. A Govern-
ment Services Chapter repre-
sents emergency physicians em-
ployed by military branches and
other government agencies.

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 machine. The
presentation is free to the public but you are asked to call

Workout tips for busy people


The public knows that exercise is good for them. But despite service
announcements and words of wisdom from doctors, at least 60 percent
of adults in this country are not physically active. Many people argue
that they just don't have time for it with jobs, family, chores and other
time commitments often taking precedence over fitness routines.
Contrary to popular belief, even busy individuals can make time for
exercise if they think creatively. Remember, exercise doesn't necessarily
have to mean uninterrupted time at the local gym. By integrating tasks
and changing habits, one just may find he is challenging his body with
enough daily exercise. Exercise can offer the following: extended
longevity, improved mood and protection against the development of
coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, obesity, non-insulin-
dependent diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, colon cancer, and depression.
Regular physical activity improves the overall quality of life.
1. Take the stairs: Modem conveniences like elevators and escalators
are handy, but you don't exert any energy by using these devices. Make
a habit of using the stairs at malls, office buildings, apartment buildings,
and even take a few extra trips up and down your home staircase. If you
work on the 25th floor, don't worry. Take the elevator to the 20th and
walk up the remaining five flights. Just by doing this you can get your
heart pumping and work muscles in your calves and thighs.
2. Find excuses to walk: In an effort to save time, people often park as
close to store entrances as possible, or drive around neighborhoods
looking for the closest spot when visiting friends or family. Break this
habit and park further away. By doing so you'll be adding exercise to
your routine and it really won't take up much of your time. You can also
walk the track at an area high school or join a walking club. Seniors who
enjoy walking in a climate-controlled environment may find a few laps
around the mall (all the while window shopping) is an enjoyable way to
exert energy and pass the time.
3. Pump iron during commercials: Resistance and strength training is
an important component of fitness and doesn't require a lot of fancy
equipment. Simply store a set of dunibbells or resistance elastics by the,
sofa. During the commercials of your favorite show, do a few repetitions
of exercises that will work the major muscles of the body (you can find
charts of exercises online or consult with a fitness professional). During
one hour-long program you could put in 20 minutes of strength training.


Simply taking a walk with the family can be a way to integrate exercise into busy schedules.

4. Make mundane activities fitness-friendly: Just tackling chores
around the house can add up to a workout. Vigorous housecleaning,
including mopping and vacuuming can bum between 180 and 130
calories per 30 minutes depending upon weight and gender. Similarly,
gardening, playing with the kids or joining a sports team can be fun
ways to bum calories and won't seem like exercise at all.
5. Vary your routine: The same activities everyday can grow tedious
over time, causing you to slack off. Make a list of activities that you
enjoy (horseback riding, hiking, in-line skating) and integrate them into
your exercise routine. Not only will you be mentally recharged, but
you'll work different muscles and areas of the body depending upon the
activity.
6. Get others involved: Any exercise can be more enjoyable with a
friend or partner,, e\ en if it's just the loyal family dog. Paretts.kc.ani evjy
take young children out for walks or outings at a park, helping toufoster
a love of exercise at a young age. Industrious workers can broach the
topic of setting up a company-sponsored sports team or exercise club at
work on company time. This way, friendly coworkers can enjoy
exercising together and not have to cut into their own time.

Dear Classified Guys,
My co-worker and I worked along
side each other for three years. Over
that time, we became friends and I
got to know her quite well. Although
she is a very nice person, she has
always had a terrible work ethic,
commonly coming in late and mak-
ing mistakes throughout the'day.
Her track record finally caught up
with her. A few weeks ago she was
let go for poor job performance. Now
she is looking for a new job and is
answering ads in the classified. As
part of her job search, she asked if I
would be a reference for her. My
problem is I agree with her employer.
Although she's a nice person, she is
a terrible employee. If someone
should call, I'm not comfortable
with lying about her abilities.
However, I also know she -
needs the money and the >, __ y
job. Any suggestions on
what I should do if the phone
rings on this matter?

Cash: Let it go to voicemail! You're
in a tough position. Balancing friends
and business is always a difficult matter.
Carry: It sounds like you're strug-
gling with being honest with your
friend. However, if she does have some

bad habits that inhibit her job perform-
ance, maybe she needs someone to tell
her the truth so she can improve.
Cash: It's also possible that your
friend didn't enjoy her previous position
or it didn't match her strongest skills.
That is often enough to keep employees
from performing to the best of their
abilities. Maybe finding a new position
that she truly enjoys will improve her
proficiency.
Carry: As for being a reference for
your friend, you have to be honest. The
only thing worse than lying to your
friend would be giving a lousy recom-
mendation to her potential employer.
You'd be a much better friend by telling


her that you're not comfortable with
being a reference.
Cash: As an alternative, you could
still help her job search by offering a
letter of recommendation. Writing a let-
ter would allow you to collect your
thoughts and offer a brief summary of
her positive traits. If she was working
by your side for two years, you must
have noticed some positive points.
Carry: Putting your thoughts on'
paper allows you to avoid talking with
employers, yet still offers your friend
some assistance in finding a new job.
Cash: With any luck, your friend
will find a new job and take you out to
dinner as a thank you.


Referees
"References available upon request."
This is standard language at the bottom
of most resumes. However, if you're
going to use the phrase, be prepared with
quality references. In today's profes-
sional world, you need people who can
attest to your work ethic, offer examples
of your professional accomplishments
and present you in a positive light. Let
your references know about your goals
and who may contact them. Prepare
them by giving them a copy of your
resume and after you land that new job,
be sure to thank them for their efforts.
Terminated
Donald Trump has made a television
name for himself by firing his applicants.
However, being fired for the rest of us "
isn't so glamorous. If you're faced with
the harsh reality of being fired, remem-
ber to stay positive.' While it's easy to
dwell on the "woe is me", it's much more
important to focus on your future. Start
building your resume and applying for
new jobs immediately. Keep a positive
outlook about finding a new position..
Your confident attitude will come
through during your job interviews.

Screening Process
I own a local auto parts store and
am always in need of good counter,
help. Last time I advertised, one
gentleman named Jimmy applied.
He was very nice, had a great knowl-
edge of cars and seemed eager for a
full-time job.
As I ran through his application, I'
noticed his work experience had a
few gaps so I decided to call one of
his references. The gentleman told
me he remembered Jimmy from
years ago. "He was always on his
best behavior," he explained. "I
knew him for about two years and
three months."
* Rather surprised by his response, I
asked him how he could be so defini-
tive on.the time frame.
"That's easy," he replied. "I was his
warden."

The following is a list of helpful tips to follow when prepar-
ing to participate in a J.W. Hill and Associates Auction. We hope
th-y are helpful and make your participation in a J.W. Hill and
Associates auction successful and easy.
The professionals at J.W. Hill and Associates are prepared to
supply you with information, over the telephone 386-362-3300
or toll-free, 888-821-0894) or e-mail jwhillandassociates@ya-
hoo.com, concerning specific properties as well as the auction
process itself. Take a minute and contact us now.
Find out as much as you can about the property.
Take full advance of any inspections conducted by J.W. Hill
& Associates or schedule a private site viewing. This will allow
you or your representative to see first hand what you are bidding
on and help determine value and desirability. This allows you to
bid with confidence.
Increase your comfort level by knowing your mortgage
qualifications. Even before you decide on a property to buy, you
should prequalify yourself through your banker. There is never
a mortgage contingency in a real estate auction. It is best to
know you can pay for the property before you bid. Now you can
be able to bid with confidence!
Check the local newspapers or join our mailing list for auc-
tions in your area.
Attend and observe one or more auctions and familiarize
yourself with the process before you attend an auction as a bid-
der. The auction process happens quickly, so knowing what to
expect is important, when your time comes to buy. If you can't
find an auction, call 386-362-3300 or toll-free 888-821-0894.
Determine your bid limit after examination of the property
and all available information. Don't be afraid to bid early. Most
other bidders will be willing to pay just as much as you. The one
who bids the number first, wins that day.
On auction day, it is to your advantage to arrive at the auc-
tion site one hour before the auction. By doing so, you will have
more time to consult with on-site staff who are prepared to as-
sist you with your last minute questions regarding the property
and the auction process. Upon completion of registration you
will receive a bid number, terms of the sale, and other important
auction day information.
If you are the successful high bidder at an auction, you will
be required to affirm your bid with a signature and deposit. All
deposits must be in earnest money form, i.e. cash, certified or
bank check. Deposit requirements and amounts are clearly list-
ed in the "TERMS" section of all J.W. Hill & Associates adver-
tising.
Prior to the start of bidding, J.W. Hill & Associates auction-
eers conduct a question and answer period. This is an opportu-
nity for registered bidders to ask any last minute questions be-
fore the auction begins.
Until you have won or reached your limit. There can be only
one.

Simple Sides or






4t Entertain ina


FAMILY FEATURES


S seasonal celebrations provide a perfect opportunity to
entertain at home. Just remember, the key to a
successful and stress-free soir6e is to keep it
simple and think "side dishes."
Side dishes are a great way to show your versa-
tility and shine in the kitchen. Prepare a meal with
a simple roast or store-bought entr6e, such as a
glazed ham or roasted turkey, and you've got
a terrific spread that will keep your guests
coming back for more.
Broccoli 'n' Cheese Casserole is an easy
and delicious spin on a plain broccoli side
dish. Plus, it's a great way to get your
younger guests to eat their veggies. I
For a dish that is simple, but full of flavor,
try Broth Simmered Rice. Prepared with
Swanson Broth instead of water, it is easy to
customize to complement any main course.
For a tasty twist, make it "Florentine" by
adding Italian seasoning, spinach and N
Parmesan cheese.
Three-Cheese Pasta Bake is a creamy
pasta dish that is sure to satisfy. Made with
Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, this .
crowd-pleaser has only six ingredients and
can be ready in just 25 minutes.
