David Goolsby,

association
of Florida,
suggested changing
how property is
assessed.

Vanessa Fultz
Special to the News
Area residents got to
speak their minds on Flori-
da's property tax crisis at a
public hearing at Suwannee
Elementary School in Live
Oak March 12. Several leg-
islators and members of the
Property Tax Reform Ad
Hoc Committee came to lis-
ten. Close to 300 people at-
tended the event and 42 res-
idents, business owners
and elected officials spoke.
The message to lawmak-
ers was to keep citizens in
mind and for them to take


their time making a deci-
sion about the issue this leg-
islative session.
Some speakers wanted to
know why their property
taxes went up when a
neighbor's did not. Richard
Rice, who recently moved
to Suwannee County from
West Palm Beach, said the
24-acre lot next to his was
appraised at $56,000 and his
6.6-acre lot was appraised
$51,000.
"Some of the laws need to
be changed to be fair to
everyone," he said. "Every-
one should pay their fair
share in axes based on the
size of their lots and the us-
age."
Rick Paul of Live Oak
said his property taxes have
escalated 120 percent in
three years.
"If this rate of increase
continues to go, within
eight years I will be paying
more in annual property

It looks like spring with bright it
green new growth on the i
bushes and trees. It smells
like spring with flowers
blooming along every
road. It even felt like
spring for a few days. But y e t
as the last "cold spell" reminds y e t
-us, it isn't spring yet. e
Spring officially started Tues-
day, March 20, but according to folklore, you can expect
.more cold weather before Easter. Traditionally, you
shouldn't plant vegetables or flowers until after Easter,
'which is on April 8 this year, to prevent the plants being
damaged by a late frost. So leave your trowels in the
shed a few more weeks.


Israelis visit Old Jail Museum
Shirley Smith, curator of the Old Jail Museum,
was surprised and pleased to have visitors from Is-
rael on Thursday, March 15. Rafael and Michal
Rozen, and Avi and Sara Carmeli had been vaca-
tioning in Miami and Orlando. They were on the.
way back to Atlanta, Ga., for their fight home,
when they saw a sign for the Old Jail.
The two couples said this was the first time they
had ever seen anything like the old jail and they
thought it was wonderful. Avi Carmeli found the
jail very interesting because he is a volunteer po-
liceman in their hometown, which is near Tel Aviv.

Friday, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more informa- Sara and Avi Carmeli, and Rafael and Michal Rozen from Israel

New website for insurance questions


Florida Chief Financial
Officer (CFO) Alex Sink
and General Bob Milligan,
Florida's new Insurance
Consumer Advocate, un-
veiled a new website de-
signed to educate Floridi-
ans, about their vision for
the position, as well as pro-
vide contact information
for consumers with insur-
ance-related questions.
Floridians can now go on-
line at
www.fldfs.com/ica/ to ac-
cess the Insurance Con-
sumer Advocate's office.
"I want the Insurance
Consumer Advocate to be-
come a household name in.


Florida," said CFO Sink.
"One of the first steps in
strengthening the Insur-
ance Consumer Advocate
is educating Floridians
about this position and
how it serves the people."
"As the Insurance Con-
sumer Advocate, it's my
goal to help educate and
help defend the rights of
Floridians when it comes to
insurance," said General
Milligan. "Together, the
CFO and I will also be
searching for new insur-
ance solutions that will in-
crease competition, stabi-
lize the insurance market
and offer consumers more


choices."
The Insurance Consumer
Advocate will be proactive
in finding insurance solu-
tions in other areas. An ex-
ample of a potential area
needing attention is the ac-
cess and affordability of
health insurance. While
property insurance has un-
derstandably been fore-
front on Floridians' minds,
Florida has a real health in-
surance crisis as well. More
than three million Floridi-
ans lack health insurance
and the state ranks among
the bottom when it comes
to insuring children.
The Department of Fi-
nancial Services runs a.
statewide consumer
helpline that receives ap-
proximately 500,000 finan-
cial and insurance-related
inquiries annually. A
stronger Insurance Coh-
sumer Advocate will iden-
tify negative trends and
bad business practices, and
will have the authority to

taxes than I paid for my,
lot," said Paul.
Paul suggested a 4-5 per-
cent increase across the
board.
Robert Williams of Lake
City agreed by suggesting a
set percentage increase
across 'the board based on
total dollar amount rather,
than on assessment.
"I would like to see (the
increase) be a certain set
percent ... that way you can
plan your life. That way I
know what I've got to come
up with," said Williams.
Others spoke about the
sales tax proposal.
Jim Fessler of Live Oak
addressed the proposal as a
business owner. He said
about 95 percent of his cus-
tomers come from out of
state and increasing the
sales tax would cause them
to go.to another state.
"If I provide them (cus-
tomers) with anything tax-
able including a drop of oil,

call attention to insurance
companies operating in bad
faith, using unfair trade
practices, or ..deceptive or
misleading sales tactics.'

Others were in favor of
raising the sales tax to elim-

"Eliminate property taxes

of increased property val-
ue." ,
Lynn Rutherford of Live.
Oak voiced concerns about
the lack of services.
"We still have dirt roads
and we pay an increase in
sales tax for gas and the
roads haven't, been im-'
proved," she said. "I think
there's been too much taxa-
tion without, representa-
tion."
Other residents echoed
her concerns. Despite taxa-
tion the city doesn't provide
services to them such as wa-
ter, sewer or sidewalks, they
said.
Clerk of Court Kenneth
Dasher said with the sales
tax proposal from the
House, Suwannee County
will probably lose $4 mil-
lion.
"An increase in taxes here
in a rural area is pretty dev-
astating," he said. "We
won't break down and fall
but services will be some-
what limited. The commis-
sioners will have to learn to
adjust to that if that does
come about."
David Goolsby, President
of Property Appraisers as-
sociation of Florida, sug-
gested changing how prop-Y
erty is assessed.
"In Florida we're assessed
at 100 percent of market val-
ue. If you decrease that to
50-60 percent, everyone's
level comes down," he said.
He said the difference
could' be made up through
sales tax.
Suwannee County Com-
missioner Ivie Fowler said
property taxes and home-
stead exemption being re-
placed with 41 percent sales
tax increase is unfair to low-
er income people..


"We're close to the' Geor-
gia line and people are go-
ing to Georgia everyday
buying their cigarettes anid
liquor and tobacco. Forty-
one percent increase and
they'll go and eat and shop,
too," he said.
Fowler noted if the sales
tax proposal is adopted,
Suwannee County sales tax
would be placed at 9 and
1/2 percent.
Goolsby suggested taking
school tax out of the ad val-
orem equation to fund edu-
cation from other sources.
The School Superinten-
dent in Taylor County
asked the committee to
make a commitment to ex-
empt education from any
tax reform.
The committee explained
they cared and share their
burden.
Many speakers expressed
their gratitude for the com-
mittee listening. One man
remarked, "I am 70 years
old and this is the first time
I have ever had ,a group
from the state come and ask
my opinion. I'm just thrilled
to death."
Lawmakers are proposing
several property tax reform
initiatives in the legislative
session. The committee said
they hope to come up with a
solution this legislative ses-
sion, which ends in May.
Members of the Prop-
erty Tax Reform Ad Hoc
Committee who came to
the meeting were Debbie
Boyd, Charles Chestnut,
Franklin Sands, .Steve Oel-
rich, Mike Haridopolos,
Will Kendrick and Dennis
Baxley.

HEALTH ADVISOR TIP
When you need a prescription filled, how do you decide where to go? Convenience and
price are the factors that drive most of us. I'd like to suggest that there are additional factors'
to consider. In fact, there are many reasons to think and act locally, not only to get you your
prescriptions filled quickly and at a fair price, but also to ensure that our community thrives.
While we see chain stores popping up everywhere, did you know that there are 24,000
independent community pharmacies in the US today? And that their local pharmacists fill!
44 percent of the retail prescriptions sold each year? These pharmacies do an excellent jobi
not only in filling prescriptions but helping customers understand how and when to take!
their prescriptions. A 2002 Consumer Reports survey of 32,000 readers .found that 85;
percent of surveyed Consumer Reports readers were very satisfied or completely satisfied
with their experience at independents compared with 58 percent of chain-drugstorej
customers.
These same Consumer Reports readers also reported that independent pharmacies;
were most likely to have fast service and helpful pharmacists. This may be partly due to thoj
entrepreneurial character of independents, which puts their owner-operators at least one;
step closer to their patients than other types of pharmacies. This often translates into fewer
delays in filling orders, shorter waits in line, and more personal attention from pharmacists.,
Consumer Reports readers found independent pharmacists to be accessible,
approachable, and especially knowledgeable about both prescription and non-prescriptio0
medications.
Local community pharmacies are often a good source of hard-to-find medications. The,
Consumer Reports survey found that when these local, pharmacies were out of Al
medication, they were able to get it for patients within one day 80 percent of the time. Other
types of pharmacies were only able to restock within a day about 55 percent of the time. ,
So, what about costs? Cost is less of an issue at independents today than it was in the;
past because most pharmacies accept insurance plans. Your co-payment will be the same
at all pharmacies. The Consumer Report's research found that the chains they evaluated
charged the highest prices, presumably for prescriptions not covered by insurance.
But beyond the personal attention, professional service, high standard of care, and lower
costs of independents, there are other reasons to shop locally at independent pharmacies.r
Economics is one. Local businesses tend to hire locally for positions that are ofteh
centralized in a chain's headquarters. Compared with the select inventory of chains
independents also carry local items in addition to national brand items. I'
And the profits from locally-owned businesses more often make their way back into them
community.- In fact, a 2003 Independent Business Alliance economic impact studs,
conducted in Texas found that more than three times as much money stayed in the
community when it was spent at local businesses than when it was spent at chains. Add tol
this the higher costs fortoad maintenance and public safety services of the chains, and you
have some strong financial arguments in favor of independent pharmacies. When you
spend your money with local independent businesses, too, you are having a critical say i(i
the look and feel of your town, and taking one step toward helping to preserve its.unique:
character.That's something that canit'be measured in dollars. '. '.

Mae Johnson honored for service


, The Hamilton County
Juvenile Justice Council
honored Mae Jackson on
Monday, Feb. 19, for her
service to the PASE after-
school program. Jackson
has served as a direct care
worker at the after-school
program since August
2006. She was recognized
for her dedication, hard
work and desire to help
the youth.
Tara da Silva, Program
Coordinator for the PASE
after school-program, said
that "Ms. Mae is such an
integral part of the pro-
gram. The kids really love
Jher and she sure loves
them. She is one in a mil-
lion and I would be lost


without her."
The PASE after school
program works with at
risk youth ages 9-13, who
are referred by the school
or their family. The pro-
gram offers a safe struc-
tured environment where
they can receive positive
adult interaction. PASE fo-
cuses on academics, struc-
tured athletic activities,
and violence and drug
prevention.
Da Silva said that 38
youths have been enrolled
since August of 2006. The
program.is in its second
and final year of funding
through the Department of
Juvenile Justice. The pro-
gram began as a founda-


tion for a long term after
school program such as
Boys/Girls Club or a PAL
program.
"Now that things have
been going for a couple
years, we're hoping some-
one in the community can
pick it up and run with it.
The kids and the commu-
nity seem to really benefit
from this program. We've
had a lot of positive feed-
back from teachers as well
as parents. Everyone at
the program can see im-
provement in the youth,"
da Silva said.
For more information on
the PASE Program contact
Tara da Silva, Program Co-
ordinator at 386-362-6483.

James W. McGlothlin,
chairman and CEO of The
United Company of Bristol,
Va., and a former member
of The College of William &
Mary's Board of Visitors
and a longtime donor, with-
held his pledge of $12 mil-
lion to the college. He made
his decision because of the
actions taken by Gene
Nichol, the college presi-
dent, who ordered the re-
moval of the cross from
Wren Chapel. The cross had


been displayed on the
chapel altar since around
1940. Nichol's justification
was that he wanted to make
the chapel welcoming to
non-Christians.
That's a lie. President
Nichol was a chapter presi-
dent of the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) for
North Florida, and an
ACLU board member in
North Carolina and Col-

Aromatherapy classes


ligious symbols for decades,
but usually through the
courts. President Nichol's
actions simply spared them
a costly court battle to re-
move the religious symbol
from William & Mary's
Wren Chapel.
Nichol's actions caused a
storm of controversy that
he probably didn't antici-
pate. Caving in to the pres-
sure, on March 6th, he
agreed to return the cross to
Wren Chapel. The ACLU
has enjoyed phenomenal
success in attacking our reli-
gious values. Unless they
are stopped, I guarantee
you they won't be satisfied
until they get some judge to
order the removal of crosses
from the graves at Arling-
ton and other military
cemeteries.
The College of William &
Mary's Wren Chapel cross
issue is simply the tip of a
much larger problem. For
decades, college administra-
tors and professors have
sanctioned or participated
in an attack on traditional
American values. They've
denied campus access to
military recruiters, promot-
ed socialism and attacked
capitalism, and instituted
race and sex quotas in ad-
missions and in the award-
ing of scholarships. They've
used their positions of trust
to indoctrinate students
with anti-Americanism. De-
spite this attack, taxpayers
and private donors have
been extremely generous,
pouring billions upon bil-
lions of dollars into institu-
tions that often hold a gen-
eralized contempt for their
values.
Mr. McGlothlin is to be
congratulated for his
courage in taking a stand
against this liberal attack on
American values. Other
wealthy donors ouglit to
emulate Mr. McGlothlin's
courage by withholding
their donations to colleges
that foster or sanction at-
tacks on traditional Ameri-
can values and decency.
While it's a bit more diffi-


cult, since their money is
taken from them, taxpayers
ought to rebel as well by
pressuring their legislators.
Many college benefactors
fondly recall their experi-
ences at their alma maters
some 20, 30 or 40 years ago.
Often, what they remember
bears little or no resem-
blance to what goes on at
campuses today. With rela-
tively little effort, benefac-
tors can become more in-
formed simply by visits to
the college's website to dis-
cover whether there are ac-
tivities offensive to their
values. If there's an office of
diversity, it strongly sug-
gests the college is practic-
ing some form of race or
sex discrimination.
The Foundation for Indi-
vidual Rights in Education
(FIRE) provides information
about colleges that have
"politically correct" speech
codes that suppress debate.
The Young America's Foun-
dation (YAF) publishes in-
formation about inane
courses at some of our col-
leges, such as UCLA's
"Queer Musicology" or
Johns Hopkins' "Mail Or-
der Brides."
Some colleges have
brazenly violated donor in-
tent. Princeton University
has been taken to court by
the Robertson family for
misuse of $207 million of a
gift estimated at $700 mil-
lion in today's prices. Be-
cause they violated donor
intent, Boston College, USC,
UCLA, Harvard and Yale
have been forced to return
multimillion-dollar gifts. It's
high time that donors large
and small summon some of
Mr. McGlothlin's courage
and hold colleges account-
able to standards of decen-
cy and honesty.

best time at Sil-
ver Springs!
Thank you to all
the chaperones. Your help
is so appreciated. We are
learning about spring and
nature this month. Our
egg-hunt and Easter party
will be Thursday, April 5.
Mrs. Selph and Ms. Bell's
kindergarten classes are
busy learning more about
our alphabet. We are be-
coming experts on a differ-
ent letter each week and
our reading skills are im-
proving rapidly. We are
learning that practice
makes perfect with all we
do.
What a relief testing is
over! First grade worked
very hard on preparing for
the Stanford 10 and we
hope to see good results in
our scores. We now have
spring fever! We are getting
our room decorated for
spring and Easter; howev-
er, school is not over and
we still have lots to learn
before summer vacation.
Encourage your child not to
let spring fever slow down
their desire for learning.
Continue to practice read-
ing with your child a few
minutes each day. They can
never get enough of that!
Second grade is practic-


ing very hard for our sec-
ond grade program. Please
come out and give us your
support on March 21 at
12:45 p.m. Thank you for
your support.
Well, third grade did
their best to "STOMP the
FCAT!" We've worked
very hard and are so happy
to be done. We're also very
thankful to many people
who are always supporting
us in all our efforts. Rob
Wolfe and PCS gave us a
wonderful party to cele-
brate the completion of
FCAT. Everyone enjoyed
the pizza and sodas. They
are always willing to do
anything to help our
school. We'd also like to
thank Greg Hicks. Third
grade just loves seeing him
in our classroom. He is so
patient with all our ques-
tions and always has an an-
swer. We really enjoyed
our chicks. We still have


some Kindergarten stu-
dents peeking in wanting
to see how big they've got-
ten. We don't want to for-
get Nurse Shaun and Mrs:
Lee! They've both given us
all encouragement and sup-
port throughout the year.
Thank you everyone from
third grade.
Congratulations to fourth
graders Martayvius Burch,
Trenton Stormant, and
Danajia Williams for
WCTV Tallahassee Kid Pics
selecting their weather
drawings which viewers
saw on The Good Morning
Show this week
The fifth and sixth grade
are so glad that FCAT test-
ing is over. We are looking
forward to Spring Break the
last week in March.
FCAT and STANFORD
10 are over! The students
are more relaxed and so are
the teachers. We will begin
the last assessment of DI-

BELS around the 20th of
April, so have your child
read, read, read! The results
of this assessment are very
important to your child. If
you can, give them a page
to read and time it. Have
them read it again and try
to beat their time. Perhaps,
think of a small reward if
they can beat their own
time. Try it! You'll be sur-
prised at how much your
child will improve with fre-
quent use of timed read-
ings. (Tips from our read-
ing coach, Joan Radford.)
We wish to extend our
thanks to Dorothy Bryant
for all her help in coordi-
nating our testing, and we
also want to thank our cafe-
teria for providing our stu-
dents with a free breakfast
and snacks for us during
test time. If there is anyone
that has not been men-
tioned, just let me thank
everyone for your help dur-
ing our test time. We are
hopeful that all our hard
work and studying will pay
off with a good test score.
SHE would like to take
this time to express its grat-
itude and appreciation to
PCS for all the contribu-.
tions they have given us
this year, the most recent of
which the entire school was
treated to a post-FCAT piz-
za party on Friday,; March
9. PCS arranged for the piz-
zas to be delivered as well
as paid for them. The party
was certainly enjoyed by
all. The drinks for the party


were provided by Stor-
mant's Grocery of White
Springs. After all, what's a
pizza without a soda?


We at South Hamilton
send a special thanks to
PCS and Stormant's Gro-
cery for all their support.

I MAHuf lVIJvF1Z../I I .LJI ;H;: -- --- ---- ----. U


By Jonathan Banks


Hello, everyone,
and welcome to
this week's edi-
tion of the Trojan News.
There are several topics I
will be discussing this
week, so to get this done
in time, we should get
this show on the road. Do
enjoy!
Some lucky class this
last week had an amazing
experience with some lit-
tle amphibians. This class
happened to be Mr.
Thomas Jackson's seventh
and eighth grade science
class at Hamilton County
High School. For several
months now, he has been
planning for his classes to
dissect frogs. I had the
chance to interview Mr.
Jackson and I asked,
"How did the students re-
act with this being their
first time dissecting a
frog?"
Mr. Jackson replied, "I
think it was quite an ex-
perience for most of stu-
dents." He went on to say
some other things such as,
"I really had to make a
point to my students that
dissecting a frog was not
just cutting up a frog, but
correctly cutting the frog
with its organs intact and
undamaged." He also
said, "I was quite im-
pressed with the work the
students did on the lab
considering only about
one or two of my students
had experience in previ-
ous schools. I think all of
the students enjoyed the
experience." Mr. Jackson
teaches approximately
"150 students throughout
the day and all of them
enjoyed this lab experi-
ence.
Eighth grade students
in Mrs, Rachel Selph's US
History class have been
working on a History Fair
Project, which is on dis-
play in her class. As a stu-
dent of hers, I thought
this was one of the most
difficult projects I had
ever been assigned. The
students had many deci-
sions to make in the
process, such as were
they going to work alone
or in a group; were they
going to do a perfor-
mance, an exhibit, an es-
say, or a documentary,
just to name a few.
I decided to work alone
and chose to display an
exhibit on Franklin De-
lano Roosevelt. Besides
my own of course, there
were some outstanding
projects submitted, on
subjects such as Pearl
Harbor, The Everglades,
The Great Jacksonville
Fire of 1901, Rosewood,
Jackie Robinson, and
many more points.
Mrs. Selph, Mr. Starr,
and many other staff
members applauded the
great work exhibited by
the students. Some staff
members were quite sur-
prised at how great the
projects were. Mrs. Selph
tells us we will be as-
signed another project lat-
er in the year and I am
sure you will hear more
details on this later.
Seniors who are inter-
ested in scholarship appli-
cations are advised to see
Dr. Larry Bennett. Dr.
Bennett says it is impera-
tive you see him as soon
as possible so that the ap-
plications are completed
by the deadline. For fur-
ther information or ques-
tions contact him at 792-
6540.


The

Fort White. In addition, so
did the Varsity team on
last Tuesday. Although,
both teams were defeated,
they did well and like I
always say, "We'll get
them next time."
On May 18, a total of 92
students and their Choir
director Mrs. Jones will
represent HCHS in a Mu-


Trojan News


sic Festival Competition.
The 46 middle school stu-
dents will sing a 50s'
Rock-N-Roll medley and
the other 46 high school
students will be perform-
ing a Grease medley.
The students have been
working hard all year
with fund-raisers and re-
hearsals. Even with all of

recognized at Gator Nationals

(L-R) Tony Schumacher, the driver of the Army sponsored top fuel dragster, Sarge,
and Future Soldier, Brian Bonavino. (Photo Submitted)


A Hamilton County Future Soldier
was recognized at the recent Gator Na-
tionals Drag Races for providing his
Army recruiter with the names of friends
who later enlisted.
Brian Bonavino, 18, a student at
Hamilton County High School, and the
son of Patricia and Nick Bonavino of
Jasper, was named Honorary Pit Crew
Member for Tony Schumacher, who is
the driver of Sarge, the Army-sponsored
Top Fuel dragster. Brian received an
Army Race Team shirt and accompanied
Schumacher to the starting line at. Satur-
day's races.
"It is a real honor to be selected as Pit
Crew member for Tony Schumacher be-
cause not many get to do it," Brian said.
Brian earned the honor by providing
his recruiter with the names of six
friends, four of whom choose to enlist in


the Army. For his success in providing
the referrals, Brian earned $2,000 for each
who enlisted through the Sergeant Major
of the Army Recruiting Team (SMART)
program for a total of $8,000.
Brian enlisted in the Army for guaran-
teed training as a firefighter and ships
.out this summer. He used the Army's
split option training and completed his
Basic Training between his junior and se-
nior year at HCHS.
The Army's SMART referral program
is available to all current and retired
Army Soldiers, members of the Army's
Future Soldier Training Program, and
Department of Army Civilians. For more
information about guaranteed Army
training or the SMART referral program,
contact the Lake City Army Recruiting
Station in the Lake City Mall at 386-752-
9310.


Start the newyear with new line


Fishing experiences can range from both
the pleasure that comes from catching a fish
to the pain and frustration that comes when
"the big one" gets away. For every success-
ful fish story you might hear at the boat
ramp, there are probably many more tales of
anglers left in disbelief as the fish of their
dreams breaks their line never to be seen
again.
For those of you fishing for fun, the heart-
break is usually temporary. For those of us
who fish for a living, that same heartbreak
can also break the bank. One missed fish can
be the difference between cashing a pay-
check and going broke.
That's why professionals- f- l d
myself included make
every effort to minimize the
chances of this happening ia ll
to us. First and foremost, we
start with our fishing line.
Your fishing line is the
only connection between
you and the fish. Fishing Ken C
line, as it ages, comes into
contact with many things
that all work to break it down and make it
weaker. The repeated stress and strain of
fighting big fish, rubbing on rocks and tim-
ber, sunlight, water, even a fish's' teeth can
cause your line to become weak and more
likely to break the next time you're fighting
that big fish.
Maybe your fishing gear spent the winter
confined to a lonely comer of the garage or
locked away in the rod locker of your boat.
If you are lucky, maybe you fish all through
the winter while others stay hunkered down'
in front of the fire trying to keep warm. Ei-
ther way, your fishing line has now been ex-
posed to repeated temperature changes -
from the sub-freezing cold on winter's
frostiest days to the sometimes 60- and 70-
degree highs that can still be had during
winter in some parts of the country. Those


extreme temperature changes weaken your
line. So before you begin your new year on
the water in search of big bass or any other
species of fish, take advantage of any off-
season tackle sales that might be going on or
cash in those gift cards you got for the holi-
days and stock up on fresh fishing line.
The best approach is a proactive ap-
proach. That's why I respool my reels after
each day of competition. It takes some time
and costs some money, but it's better to
spend a few dollars on fishing line than
those several thousand because I lost a fish.

:88k.


For those of you who aren't
fishing every day, the best thing
to do is carefully examine your
line before each trip and look for
cuts and abrasions. Whenever
your reels have been sitting in
the garage for a long time or if
they spend a lot of time in the
sun, take the time to respool
them. If you use colored line,
check the colorfastness. If the
color has faded, chances are
that it is time to respool.


I prefer to keep bulk spools for respooling
because it helps me save money and time. I
keep them closed in a cabinet in a cool, dry
place with the date of purchase written on
each spool. It is important to store the line
away from sunlight and moisture.
Today's technology has brought us su-
perior fluorocarbon line. These tools that
give anglers the strong, manageable line
they need to land big fish. But even the
best line can wear down after prolonged
use. Whether you fish for fun or for a pay-
check, it's better to be safe than sorry. Re-
spool often and avoid the heartbreak of a
lost fish.

Spring has finally sprung
here in our beloved Hamil-
ton County. The azaleas,
dogwood trees, wisteria,
wild plum trees, wild yel-
low jasmine, and wild azaleas, that bloom
this time of the year are all a feast for the
eyes. The beautiful, vibrant colors of the
spring flowers makes one feel better. If
you need a lift take a drive around our
county and enjoy the beauty of God's
world.
Spring break for the schools in Hamilton
County will be held next week, March 26
through 30. We wish all students and staff
members a safe, happy, and healthy spring
break.
The seventh annual Wild Azalea Festival
in White Springs held on Saturday, March
17, was a beautiful event. Our appreciation
is extended to the Special Events Planning
Committee, the Town of White Springs,
and the staff at the Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park. Each person
and organization who contributed to the
success of this event is worthy of much
praise. We appreciate you!
Approximately 2000 people attended


this event. Food vendors
sold everything from funnel
cakes to barbeque and
9 chicken pilau. The crafts
SII vendors offered everything
from tie-dye articles to wa-
tercolors.
To top off the day, Tom
Moore phoned me while I
was dozing, and he asked,
"Do you know how to pad-
dle a canoe?" To which I re-
sponded, "Yes, but I don't
want to paddle one today." He laughed
and told me I had won the canoe, paddles,
etc., donated by Wendell Hannum, White
Springs, about $800 worth of goodies. I
couldn't believe it. I bought four tickets for
the duck race and won first prize.
There was a nice group of visitors who
were part of Georgia Southern Railway
Systems who came into White Springs on
Saturday for the festival. I had the oppor-
tunity to tell them some about the history
of White Springs. They were a delightful
and very congenial group, and I thorough-
ly enjoyed spending time with them.
From White Springs, I traveled to the
northern end of the county to Jennings,
where I was honored to emcee the 17th an-
nual Miss North Hamilton Elementary
Pageant, sponsored each year by the NHE
PTO. What a beautiful, well-organized
pageant. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and
it was so good seeing so many friends. The
school, staff, the PTO, the parents, grand-
parents, and most importantly, all the con-'
testants, are to be commended.
The Easter Sunrise Planning Committee
will meet on Thursday, March 29, at 7 p.m.
at the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist
Church, White Springs. We encourage all


interested community members, pastors
and/or representatives of area churches to
be present at this planning meeting for our
40th annual Easter Sunrise Service to be
held, Sunday, April 8, at the Stephen Fos-
ter Park at 6:45 a.m.
Our sympathy is extended to the family
of Mr. Leon Musgrove, Jasper. The family
has the prayers of our White Springs Com-
munity. Mr. Musgrove worked for the
Hamilton County School Board for many
years as a school bus driver and school bus
mechanic. He was preceded in death by
his wife, the late Edna Musgrove.
Congratulations are extended to young
Miss Paige Carroll, Live Oak, who became
our sixth Little Miss Azalea at the annual
Wild Azalea Festival. Paige is the daughter
of April and Linton Carroll. A special, spe-
cial congratulations is extended to Paige
from Uncle Faron and "Nana" Joyce
Fillyaw. Faron and Joyce are two of my
very favorites in White Springs. They have
always been such wonderful and special
contributors to the White Springs commu-
nity.
My thanks are extended to Barbara Ed-
wards, White Springs, who helped orga-
nize a children's area. Barbara is retired
now, but she is still active with young peo-
ple, and we do appreciate her very much.
One of my very good friends, Lovely
Mae Williams, will celebrate her three
score plus fourteen this week. For those of
you who can't do the math that is 74. She
related to me that she felt very blessed.
Lovely Mae has blessed the lives of many
in our area including me. At the festival on
Saturday, she was sporting a pair of sassy
emerald green slippers and was in the
spirit of the festivities. God bless you,
Lovely Mae I love you.


It was great sharing a visit with a num-
ber of members of our extended Folk Festi-
val Family this past Saturday including
Bobby Hicks, Tampa; Whitey Markle,
Gainesville; Del Suggs, Tallahassee; Ken
and Nancy Buchanan, Loxahatchee; and
Carolyn Pardue, Tallahassee. We look for-
ward to them over Memorial Day Week-
end, at the 55th annual Florida Folk Festi-
val.
Joy Howell, president of the Hamilton
County Chamber of Commerce did a mar-
velous job of organizing the Chamber of
Commerce After Hours Event on Thurs-
day, March 15. This event was sponsored
by GTE Federal Credit Union. The Cham-
ber is working very hard to increase'its
membership and to work positively with
the businesses and citizens of Hamilton
County. We appreciate Joy so very much,
as well as all the members of the Chamber
Board!
Please remember the following in
prayer: JM Morgan, Barbara Thomas,
Tommie Smith, Claire Smith, Frank .
McPherson, Jean Padgett, Marie Hickson,
Mae Tomlinson, Franklin Fouraker, Wan-
da Stephens, "Aunt" Nancy Morgan,
Gussie Cheshire, Gaynelle Greene, Gladys

son, Ella Taylor, Hilda Lawrence, Jan

vian Scott, Isabel Freeman, Terry Lowe,

NEWS


The students in Mrs.
Driggers', Mrs. Tyre's, and
Ms. Newsome's second
grade classes at North
Hamilton Elementary
School have used their cre-
ative abilities to transform
old objects around their
homes into spacecrafts.
Everything from lamp-


shades, shovel handles,
and even table legs were
glued, taped, or tied to-
gether to form interesting
spacecrafts. The students
enjoyed sharing these with
their classes, but the most
fun was working with
their families to plan and
build them together.


While the crafts were be-
ing designed and con-
structed at home, there
was also work to do at
school. The classes were
busy studying the Solar
System. Each student re-
searched a planet, wrote a
report, painted a model of.
their planet, and presented


the report to their class.
These second graders have
enjoyed studying the Solar
System and they have
gained a lot of information
as teachers at North
Hamilton Elementary
School are "Changing
Lives Through Quality Ed-
ucation."

The "rocket men" of

NFCC science instructor
Terry Zimmerman and stu-

all of Jasper, were on hand .
to watch the launch of more
than 400 flights of rockets.

Brenda Carter entertained her
former faculty associates at
North Hamilton ES for lunch
last Friday at her home. It was
a teacher work day, a perfect time for
teachers to enjoy lunch and talk over old
times. They were joined by a very special
guest, Jeff Burnham, who had been their
principal for a number of years. Linda
Goolsby, employee of NHE, assisted her
sister, Brenda, in this special time.
Hope some of you got to see the "Today
Show" on Tuesday morning. I received a
call that Art Smith was going to be on the
show so I rushed to get there, and of
course had to wait, but it was worth wait-
ing for. It would have been worth it just to
get to see him, he looked great, but his pre-
-sentation was, as usual, most impressive,
made me wish he were here to treat us to a
special meal, and most important, it was a
healthy one. I do not know about the
dessert, but it looked delicious, and he
mentioned "Addie Mae's cake,"
I am assuming this is one Addie makes,
it was a coconut cake I think. I do not have
his cookbook with me as I am having to do


this at Dr. Ben's office, com-
S puter trouble again, and it
looks like it may be serious
this time. It is always good to
see Art and hear about what
he is doing. We will have
more news of him that will be
upcoming soon.
Did you Relay? If you did not you
missed some special moments. It was cold.
The wind got rather fierce at times, but the
feelings were warm. We missed having
more survivors. I know there are many
who we would have liked to have with us
and maybe next year. I am sure you will
see and hear more about this in other parts
of The asperr News.
We had good food at the VFW last week.
As usual, they had good workers and need
our support.
The Hamilton County Sisterhood will be
at White Springs Baptist Church in April.
There has been a change in date and time,
so watch for this change in next weeks is-

Shands puts decontamination team to the test


Staff
Months of training and
an investment in thousands
of dollars in equipment
have paid off for two north
Florida hospitals. Shands
Live Oak and Shands Lake
Shore in Lake City tested
their ability to respond to a
hazardous-material, mass-
casualty event by hosting a
disaster drill this week.
"This hospital did an ab-
solutely fabulous job," said
Jack Pittman, director of
Public Health Preparedness
for the North Florida Re-
gion and Domestic Security
Task Force member, during
a post-drill debriefing at
Shands Live Oak. "You are
very well trained and knew
what to do."
March 13, doctors, nurses
and other hospital staff re-
sponded to a simulated ac-
cident that involved a tour
bus traveling east on Inter-
state 10 with approximately
45 passengers on board. It
was reported that an explo-
sion occurred inside the
bus from an improvised ex-
plosive device. During the
drill, the Shands Lake
Shore team decontaminat-
ed, triaged and treated 26


patients while the Shands
Live Oak team worked with
19 patients.
"These types of events
show that it takes the
whole community to work
together for the quality of
patient care," said Pittman.
"Shands Live Oak, Suwan-
nee County EMS, Live Oak
Fire Department and the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office did an excellent job
supporting each other dur-
ing a taxing disaster
event."
Federal and state grants
enabled both hospitals to
purchase decontamination
equipment, including a de-
contamination shower,
trailer, truck, fire hoses and
a variety of personal-pro-
tective gear. All hospitals
are required to perform two
emergency preparedness
drills annually.
"Our staff was very pre-
pared. They knew our dis-
aster plan and never pan-
icked," said Alicia Layne,
Shands Live Oak director
of nursing. "'We are com-
mitted to providing patient
care in the safest way by
ensuring our staff is ade-
quately trained."

New help for diabetics struggling with weight loss


With no known cause and no current cure, diabetes is a mystery to many. But many
experts have discovered that obesity and lack of exercise may be connected with diabetes,
and reducing weight and dieting can be an important part of managing the disease and
living a much longer, normal life.
Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce insulin (Type 1) or is unable to
effectively use insulin (Type 2). Insulin is a hormone that converts sugars and starches into
energy that cells in the body use for energy and life. Roughly 7 percent of the U.S.
population has diabetes. Early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes can help prevent
complications associated with the disease, such as vision loss and nerve damage.
It is important to note that even though diabetes is serious and a diagnosis can seem
scary, most people who begin treatment early can live long, happy lives. Because type 2 is
the most common, treatment for this branch of the disease is discussed.
Common Conditions and Treatment
Type 2 diabetes brings with it a bevy of symptoms and subsequent remedies. It is
important to be consistent in monitoring blood glucose (sugar) levels and watch for signs
and symptoms of complications.
Hypoglycemia Also known as low blood sugar, this can occur even during the
strictest diabetes management. Symptoms include dizziness, shaking, hunger, headache,
mood changes, and difficulty paying attention. If blood glucose cannot be tested at the
time of symptoms, it's important to treat anyway. If not effectively addressed,
hypoglycemia can cause fainting. Treatment: Consuming glucose tablets or fruit juice can
help elevate sugar levels.
Hyperglycemia Also known as high blood sugar where the insulin production or
usage cannot control the amount of blood glucose. It is important to treat this as soon as a
problem is detected. Otherwise, a condition called ketoacidosis (diabetic coma) could
occur. When the body doesn't have enough insulin to use glucose for fuel it breaks down
fats to use for energy. During breakdown, waste products called ketones are produced,
which the body cannot get rid of in many cases and they build up.in the blood Signs of
hyperglycemia include fruity breath, nausea and vomiting, dry mouth, and shortness of
breath. Treatment: One of the ways to keep blood sugar in check is through exercise.
However, if your blood glucose is above 240 mg/dl, check your urine for ketones. If you
have ketones, do NOT exercise. Diet and weight management are also effective
treatments. A healthy meal plan for people with diabetes is the same as that for everyone
- low in fat (especially saturated and trans fat), moderate in salt and sugar, with meals
based on whole grain foods, vegetables and fruit.
How Supplements Can Help
Losing weight, even a few pounds, can help manage diabetes. And for those who do not
have diabetes, but may be at risk, eating healthily and maintaining a healthy body weight
are keys to avoiding diabetes down the line. But as most people know, losing weight is not
so easily achieved, especially when on a diabetic diet.
Carbonetics Block and Burn for Diabetics are products designed to be used together to
help people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes achieve their weight-loss goals. Carbonetics
Block is formulated with ingredients such as Banaba leaf, Gymnema, and Fenugreek,
which are being studied as a natural assist in stabilizing blood sugar in healthy adults.
When blood sugar is stable, cravings are reduced. It also includes White Kidney Bean
extracts or phaseolus vulgaris- the same base material that patented "Phase 2" products are
derived from. This combination of Banaba and Phaseolus extracts help support normal
blood sugar levels in healthy adults, a one-two punch for diabetics not found in other
Phase 2 products on the market.
Carbonetics Burn contains a patented new breakthrough ingredient called Carbogen.
This is a proprietary enzyme formulation composed of amylase, cellulase and
hemicellulase. Carbogen helps the body efficiently process carbohydrates consumed,
converting it to glycogen, which is then used by the cells and muscles as energy. There is

Maintaining a healthy weight is onestep in managing diabetes.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one step in managing diabetes.


an added bonus for people who include regular exercise as a part of their weight loss plan.
Carbogen helps supply the body with ready sources of energy helping to fuel workouts. A
study at the University of Dayton showed that cyclists consuming Carbogen and then
exercising had a lower rate of perceived exertion. They didn't feel as tired during the
workout and thus were able to continue the workout longer.
Carbonetics Block and Burn for Diabetics can be an important component of diabetes
treatment. Banaba leaf's blood-sugar regulating properties have been demonstrated in
various studies. In isolated cells, the active ingredient in banaba extract, corosolic acid, is
known to stimulate glucose uptake. In humans with type 2 diabetes, banaba extract, at a
dose of 16 to 48 mg per day for 4 to 8 weeks has been shown to be effective in reducing
blood sugar levels up to 30 percent and maintaining better control of blood sugar
fluctuations. A "side-effect" of Banaba is weight loss (2 to 4 pounds a month) without
significant dietary changes. Another key ingredient in the supplements, Phaseolus Extract,
helps block the absorpt ion of some carbs and fats in the diet. Eating smaller portions
combined \. ith iihis supplement can provide greater weight-loss benefits.
These. supplements are easy to include in a healthy lifestyle. Many products require up
to six pills before each meal, but with Carbonetics, only two pills per day before your
main meal are necessary. Remember, Carbonetics are only one component of a healthy
lifestyle and regimen for losing weight and promoting management of diabetes.

Faith takes ahlete-photographer through pain

3y Stephen Tait college years.
,NHI News Service But it was never just a ""-


moments. It was also a
way for him to share his
faith.
On each picture devel-
oped,


"I wish the Lord
would take me, but I
guess he has things


left for me


Surrounding him on the
walls of his living room
are hundreds of portraits:
of himself as a young ath-
lete; of Newburyport High
School students from the
recent past and those
who've already celebrated
20-year graduation re-
unions; and of cross coun-
try and basketball teams.
And of Jesus.
For almost three
decades, the 1968 gradu-
ate of Newburyport High
has helped to document
the cross country and bas-
ketball teams at his alma
mater. He estimates he's
.given away more than
100,000 prints and thou-
sands of framed pho-
tographs to athletes,
coaches, parents and
grandparents. He does this
all at his own expense.
But Scott said his time
as unofficial team, photog-
rapher is over, that he's al-
ready captured his last
high school event on film.
He said it's just getting
too difficult too much
pain, too niuch effort.
Just too much.
"It's so difficult to do
now," he said. "And I
don't even know if I'll be
around next fall."
Charlie Scott turned 57
years old Thusday and
doctors say it will be his
last birthday.

Dear Charlie:
I cannot tell you the
pleasure I experienced
when I received the beau-
tiful framed picture from
last year's sports night
awards.

Scott says giving the
pictures as gifts is an ex-
tension of God's love.
"It's just something I
love doing," Scott said.
"It's something God gave
me to do."
Using an old Pentax
film camera, he traveled
to cross' country meets and
basketball games to take
pictures of Newburyport's
young athletes. He said
it's always been a passion
of his, even before he was
diagnosed with progres-
sive spastic paraparesis
disease, which is attacking
the nerves in his spinal
column and brain.
The pictures have
helped document decades'
worth of the city's youth
as they made their way
through high school.ath-

to do." cludes a
small mes-
sage, a
biblical verse and some-
times a hand-drawn pic-
ture of a heart the kind
one would see on a Valen-
tine's note. The messages
used to go on the backs of
photographs, but about 10
years ago, Scott started
writing the messages on
the front to get more ex-
posure, he said.
He said it is a simple
gesture, but a powerful
message with depth that
might not be fully under-
stood by many youngsters.
"It's God's love, that's
the motivation," he said of
taking the photographs. f
For the past 24 years,
Neil Reardon has coached
the high school girls var-
sity basketball team, all
the while with Scott on
the sidelines for most
games.
In that time he said he's
received many pictures,
including when his daugh-
ter, Meghan, was on the
team.
Those pictures now
hang on the walls of his
house and serve as framed
reminders of two decades
of memories.
"I have many pictures of
her and myself and her
just pla'. ing the game,"
said Reardon, who's,
known Scott since he was
11 years old. "They are
framed in my cellar. He
has provided me with a lot
of memories over the
years."

You have become a leg-
end at N.H.S. both for
students and coaches be-
cause of your charismatic
way of creating pho-
tographs capturing unfor-
gettable moments.

Cross country began at
Newburyport High when
Scott was in eighth-grade.
"I couldn't wait to get
on the team," he said. To
this day, the sport remains
his favorite.
He ran for the team for
four years before gradua-
tion.
After high school, he
started running road races.
For 20 years, until 1985,
he ran in more than 800
races, ranging from 1-mile
road races to grueling
marathons. He also partic-
ipated as a member of the
North Medford Club and
organized his own local
road race.
Still, he said he wasn't

EAGER


FOR


EAGLES


Word is out: Birdwatchers flocking to river


By Steve Myrick
CNHI News Service


AMESBURY, Mass. -
Michael Lariviere rattles off a
long list of places he has trav-
eled hoping to see bald eagles.
"Yellowstone, all over the
Washington State area, Mount
Rainier, all through Montana,
Rocky Mountain National
Park, Yosemite. My wife and I
travel all over the country.
We've got pictures of elk,
moose, grizzly bears, all kinds
of hawks."
But they never managed to
see a bald eagle.
At Yosemite National Park,
rangers directed them to a
sure-fire spot where, the
rangers insisted, an eagle al-
ways sat in a tree. They
watched for two days. No ea-
gle.
Then Lariviere read a news-
paper account of the Merri-
mack River Eagle Festival, so
he came to Amesbury and
Newburyport, and found what
he was looking for.
Yesterday, standing on Ames-
bury's tiny Deer Island, just a
short drive from his Haverhill
home, he stood in ave of the
spectacle in the gray skies
above. Eagles were every-
where, gliding, playing and oc-
casionally snatching an unsus-
pecting fish from the river.
Lariviere recalls his first visit
to this spot, during the festival
last month.
"In five minutes, we saw 15
bald eagles," said Lariviere.
"You'step out of your car and
they're flying overhead."
Lariviere represents a fast-
growing interest in eagles, and
growing numbers of people
traveling to the region to see
them. Fueled by the publicity
surrounding the Eagle Festival,
Internet sites, e-mail lists, good
old-fashioned word of mouth,
and most importantly, an influx
of eagles, people are flocking
to viewing spots along the
Merrimack River hoping to
catch a close-up glimpse of the

News


nation's signature bird.
In recent weeks the Hynes
and Chain bridges, and particu-
larly the parking lot on Deer
Island between them, have
teemed with eager eagle-
watchers, virtually all of whom
are rewarded for their visit.
Several knowledgeable ob-.
servers estimate between 20
and 28 eagles have migrated
southward this year to find
open water where they can take
fish. Last year, they estimated
there were about 12 eagles
here.
Shock and awe
Many visitors come expect-
ing to peer through binoculars
at a tiny speck, in a distant tree.
They are shocked to see as
many as a dozen eagles in the
air at the same time.
When Sandy McMillan got


out of her car. after driving
down from Farmington, N.H.,
she said she and fellow pho-
tographer Russ Bunting from
Kittery, Maine, started "chimp-
ing."
"We just kept going 'ooh,
ooh, ooh,. ooh,'" like a chim-
panzee, said McMillan. "I've
never been this close to a bald
eagle."
Michele Westin heard about
the Deer Island viewing spot
from a patient in the
Portsmouth, N.H., doctor's of-
fice where she works. She had
just spread out her picnic blan-
ket on a dry patch of ground
when she heard an ear splitting
"caw" and saw a small mob of
bird watchers and photogra-
phers moving her way. A juve-'
nile eagle with a fish in its
talons had settled on the


branch of a tall pine tree, about
50 feet directly above her blan-
ket.
As she told the story, a
young eagle glided gracefully
from his perch on nearby Eagle
Island, and landed on a large
sheet of ice drifting down the
Merrimack. This caused a mi-
nor stampede of birders and
photographers dragging huge
lenses back through the muck
to the other side of the island.
Soon, another bird glided down
to join the first on the ice.
"This is a fantastic show,"
said Joe Malachowski, who
drove from Chelsea. "I've seen
at least nine (today). I was re-
ally shocked to see there are
that many hanging around this
year."
Further down the river, at the
Joppa Flats Education Center


and Wildlife Refuge, Audubon
Society officials are seeing a
dramatic increase in visitors.
"Our weekend attendance has
been phenomenal," said Melis-
sa Vokey, office manager at the
Audubon facility, and chair-
woman of the Eagle Festival.
"We've had 400 people a
weekend, and we're usually
around 150. It's people looking
for eagles."
Charismatic megafauna
The lure'of the symbolic
birds reaches far beyond nature
watchers and photographers.
Wildlife biologists put eagles
in a group they call "charis-
matic megafauna," along with
animals like tigers, lions and
wolves. They are creatures that
attract unusual attention, be-
cause people attribute human
characteristics to them, like
courage, strength and nobility.
Which they don't have, said
Vokey., "They're carrion eaters,
but because of the way they
look, you just think, that's
'what I want to be like."
The expanding interest in ea-
gles leads to a greater aware-
ness of other parts of the natur-
al world, according to Vokey.
"Eagles are sort of like the
window," she said. "If you be-
come interested in eagles, then
you might start thinking about
why the eagles are here, you
start thinking about the river,
what fish are in the river. It's a
great way to get people intro-
duced to what's happening in
nature."
Unlike sudden interest in
other species, most notably
whales and polar bears, the'
crowds do not seem to affect
the eagles, or their habitat. The
birds appear utterly oblivious
to the people standing around
watching them.
"Human's don't have any ef-
fect on whether the river is
frozen or unfrozen," said
Vokey.
However, the growing
crowds, especially on week-

ends, have caught the at-
tention of local police.
"I know traffic has
been a mess," said Sgt.
Bill Sholtz of the Ames-
bury Police Department.
Some homeowners in the
area have posted signs
letting visitors know their


lawns and driveways are
off limits, but police say
they have not received an
abnormal number of
complaints.
Back at Deer Island,
birdwatcher Job Dekker
invites a visitor over.
"I have a mature (ea-
gle) right in the scope if
you take a look," says


Dekker, who came from
the central Massachusetts
town of Princeton. "See
the white head, white
tail? He was chasing the
other bird. I think he
likes that spot."
For Dekker, seeing ea-
gles is similar to the ex-
citement sports fans
might get watching a


great game.
"They are spectacular
birds," said Dekker. "To-
day, I really wanted to
see these eagles. It has
been a while since I've
seen them this close. You
can really study them and
see them hunting and in-
teract with each other.
It's kind of a thrill. It's


very nice to see these
birds have made this dra-
matic comeback. This
particular spot is one of
the few places I've been
where you can see them
this close."
A short distance down
the shore, a Great Blue
Heronsits in silent still-
ness as the eagles soar


overhead.
"He's sitting there won-
dering why no one is
watching him," said
Dekker. "Not today, bud-
dy."

rebounder and a good
jump shooter but was
cursed with horrible ball
handling skills, admitting
this downfall with a slight
shrug and smile. After his
college days he continued
playing in the Newbury-
port city league, where he
was involved for about
two decades as a.player,
organizer and scorekeeper.
His athletic prowess and
his dedication to high
school sports are the dri-
ving force behind a move-
ment in Newburyport to
create a scholarship in
Scott's name.
On June 23, Reardon
and others from Newbury-
port High are organizing
the Charlie Scott Scholar-
ship Run/Walk at Fuller
Field, which will help to
raise money for a scholar-
ship in Scott's name.
Reardon said all proceeds
will go to the scholarship,
which will be given to a
student-athlete who com-
petes in either basketball
or cross country.
Reardon said they will
also solicit donations from
community members,
specifically those with
personal knowledge of
Scott. .
"He's well koic n for


giving and he's certainly
provided a lot of families
with a lot of nice pictures
and keepsakes," Reardon
said. "Hopefully they will
like to give back to Char-
lie. Hopefully we can car-
ry on his legacy through
the scholarship."

Mostly, however, your
"heart-felt" note on the
backside of the frame
made such an impact on
me and will remain so
the rest of my life. For
that, I would like to thank
you, thank you and
again, thank you 'again.
Coach Steve Politis
12/12/2000

It was 1983 when Scott
first started to notice
problems.
He said he started to fall
often when he ran road
races, because his legs
kept stiffening. Scott said
he had noticed the feeling
before, when his legs
started to feel tight, espe-
cially during races. And in
hindsight it made sense:
he'd always been a "stiff"
runner, people told him.
Scott said he stopped
racing in 1985, unable to
move his legs properly.
Soon aftel. he needed


chair.
'"It started as a minor in-
convenience," he said.
"But it just kept getting
worse and worse."'
A self-described "stub-
born" Man, Scott said he
was hesitant to go to doc-
tors. Finally, he went to
see a chiropractor, who af-
ter an examination sug- .
gested a neurologist. Doc-
tors thought it first it was
multiple sclerosis, but
soon found out the true.
disease.
Progressive spastic
paraparesis disease attacks
the nerve tracks in the
spinal cord and those
leading into the brain,
causing difficulty in
.movement because of in- \
creased tone or tightness
- in the muscles, accord-
ing to Dr. Kevin Ryan, a
neurologist at Beverly,
Hospital. About three in
every 100,000 people in
the United States have the
disease.
Now the disease is a
constant source of pain
for Scott. He said it is ru-
ining his immune system,
causing him to fall ill with
infections constantly. ,
Scott says he is in and
out of hospitals.
His lees are completely

killing him and he said
doctors say he has just six
months to .live.
"Whether I have six
months to live is up to the
Lord," he said. "It could
be longer, and it could be
shorter, you never know."
Scott said it was his de-
cision 20 years ago to be-
.come a Christian that is
helping him through the
constant pain and it is
evident. Even in his cur-
rent state, he says he is, re-
minded daily that some
people living in Africa
and other places have no
beds, no food, no hope.
"I'm blessed when you
think about it," he says.
He says it's his faith
that helps him to stay
alive and fight depression.
A "I would probably com-
mit suicide if I didn't
have the, faith," he said.
Sitting in his wheelchair
in the middle of his living
room on a recent after-
noon, Scott is surrounded
by some of the few things
that still comfort him.
There are dozens of
notes fastened to the.
walls. "Thank you Char-
lie," is what.most of them
read. There are senior pic-
tures of hundreds of ath-


standing with coaches or
players at awards nights.
In one corner is a chair,
filled to capacity with
stuffed animals. On the,
chair's arm is a Bible, its
pages ripped, its words
highlighted, its message
stored in Scott's brain.
Across the room is an-
other ledge filled with soft
creatures.
"People know I like
them." Scott says ,of
stuffed animals
Along another wall is a
set of three shelves, each
heavy with trophies from.
years of running, shooting
and playing in sports.
There is a "No. 1 fan" tro-
phy he received from a
Clipper basketball team.
Above those trophies
are two large picture
frames filled with medals
and ribbons from races
and track meets.
A few feet away, hang-
ing on another wall are
collages of news clips,
photographs and other re-
minders from when Scott
played basketball at
Northern Essex; when he
still had use of his legs.
These are some of the
things that comfort Scott.
He says he has other


letes whom he's captured memories stored away,
on filtt'.'lT'ee artcj1!e' eoniiu to filh\\ o or three",.
of c I., .I
of Sco, still onil crutches. other loom i ':,

I .'


Mixed in, though, are
other reminders: bottles of
medicine containing pain
medication like morphine;
an 'electric bed that allows
tilt control at the touch of
a button; the dull hum of
a humidifier that helps
him breathe; the faint
medicine smell of a hospi-
tal i'oom.
Despite the love that's
been poured out through
notes and letters, .thank-
you dinners and awards
ceremonies, scholarships
and praise, Scott says the
disease that has robbed
him of his mobility and
much of his short-term
memory is often too diffi-
cult to handle.
He says he wants his
life to end, which is.the
only way he sees an end
to the suffering. But he
.has six months, a fact that '
he soa s is '"hard. but also
not so hard."
"I suffer so much, I
wish the Lord would take
me tonight," he said.
He adds quickly,
though: "I wish the Lord
would takeme, but I
guess he has things left
for me to do."

Tips for Sellers: Enhance your storage and utility space by removing all unnecessary accumulations.
Your closets and garage will then appear much larger than they actually are.

Tips for Buyers: After you have looked at so many homes, you will have an idea of the 2 or 3 that
appeal to you. Ask to go back and see them again. Trhis time, almost always, you will notice elements of
each place that you didn't see on the first pass through. Take your pen and paper take notes.

Dear Classified Guys,
Last month I finally got my driver's
license. I'm very excited because
now I have independence from Momrn
and Dad, Since I've been doing well
in school (I recently made the honor
roll), my Dad said he would buy me a
car. How great is that? He's been
reading the classified section and
calling some ads. The problem is
that he only wants to spend about
$2000 and all of those cars are more
than five years old. Most of my
friends drive cars that are worth a lot
more than that! Some even drive
their parent's SUV's or sports cars to
school. I don't want to be the only
one pulling into the school parking
lot with a wrecker. How do I
convince my Dad that he
should be looking at higher .
priced ads? After all, my ."-V
grades are good and I've
seen his paycheck so I know .
he can afford it.

Carry: It sounds like someone might
be a little spoiled. Maybe your dad
doesn't realize that good grades are sup-
posed to translate to a BMW convert-
ible?
Cash: First of all, congratulations on
your good grades. It's very important to


S 03/18/07
2007 The Classified Guys


do well in school, not just for recogni-
tion, but for your future as well!
Carry: However, you should also be
grateful that your parents are willing to
help you out with your first car.
Regardless of your father's paycheck,
they do have reasons for their decisions.
Cash: If your Dad is circling ads in a
specific price range or type of car, he
probably has good reason. He may be
considering all of the expenses, not just
the initial cost of the car.
Carry: For example, older cars are
typically cheaper to insure, especially
for teenagers. If you are going to help
pay the insurance premium, you may be


very thankful for his decision.
Cash: With an older car, you and
your Dad may not be that upset over
minor dings or dents that "just happen"
in the school parking lot. However, if
you were driving a new car, the smallest
scratch could be a big issue.
Carry: Try sitting down and talking
with your Dad. If you're concerned
about his decision, discuss it with him
so you can better understand. Then
maybe you can work together on find-
ing a car you're both happy with.
Cash: After all, driving even a
"wrecker" to school beats riding in on
your bicycle!

Cruise Control
Before you hand your child a set of
car keys, ask yourself if they will be
driving safely. A recent survey of over
1000 people ages 15 to 17 was conduct-
ed by the Allstate Foundation. The .
results found that 56% use a cell phone
while driving. More than 69% speed to
keep up with traffic, 64% speed to go
through a yellow light and 47% admit
that their passengers sometimes distract
them while driving. With statistics like
that, it's no wonder teenage accidents
account for over $40 billion dollars a
year in damages.
Joy Ride
Do you know how your kids are driv-
ing? According to The Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the
leading public health problem for
teenagers is auto accidents. Fortunately,
technology offers some options for par-
ents. In addition to bumper sticker cam-
paigns that allow other drivers to report
erratic driving, there are now many GPS
systems and on-board video cameras
that allow you to track your'child's des-
tination and speed right from your PC.

Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.

Back Seat Driver
My daughter was exceptionally
nervous for her driving test so the
instructor allowed me to come along,
provided I sit quietly in the backseat.
My daughter did extremely well
throughout the test. However, the
instructor was overly critical.
On the last street my daughter was
directed to parallel park the car. At
the first opening, she pulled up, sig-
naled and backed in perfectly.
Looking out the window, the instruc-
tor again criticized her saying he
would have to deduct 15 points for
the parking.
I couldn't take it anymore and burst
out, "15 points? That parking was
perfect!"
The instructor calmly pointed out
the window and replied, "Yes, but
she parked in front of a fire hydrant."
(Thanks toRandy N.)



Maybe this "hitch" has a magic wand.

Bringing the outdoors in


By Tom Carr
CNHI News Service

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.
- The brass bass are
among the first things peo-
ple notice when they step
into Claudette and Keith
Johnson's home.
Original brass castings of
the popular northern
Michigan game fish are in
several places in the home:
as pulls'on the door of the
den and on kitchen and
bathroom cabinets.


"We do live on Bass
Lake," Claudette Johnson
said.
They chose to go with
the artisan's touch in that
and other aspects of their
home, as many in northern
Michigan do.
They opt for the extra
expense, because of the
lasting satisfaction of
something that can not be
mass produced.
"We won't duplicate that.
That's theirs," said Paul
Griggs, owner of Kamarca,


the contractor who enlisted
sculptor T.J. Carroll to de-
sign and cast them just for
the Johnsons.
Generally, Carroll creates
sculpture that is strictly
decorative, but here he had
to consider functional as-
pects, such as how the
pulls feel to the hand.
A lot of people want the
artisan's touch if they have
an older home and want to
remain true to its classic
style.
That was Sandy Taylor's


thinking when she remod-
eled an older house in Tra-
verse City. Other than that,
she didn't really know
what she wanted for the
home.
What she came up with
were clean, modern lines
on cabinets and the stair-
way, while maintaining the
timelessness of the home
by keeping the floors
wooden.
"I really didn't want car-
peting," she said. "I have
dogs so I knew I didn't

want that."
Sometimes, people go for
things that are strictly
northern, like a shower
Griggs tiled with a geolog-
ic-rainbow of Lake Superi-
or stones.
Sometimes, the best
northern materials are right,
outside the door.
That's where Brian May-
nard found the curvy cedar
branches and trunks for the
banisters and a ladder to a
reading loft in Whispering
Waters Bed and Breakfast
Retreat south of Traverse
City, which he co-owns
and manages.
He found them among
cedars he calls "sweepers"
those trees that grow a
curved trunk because they
started growing under a
dead tree or on the side of
a rise in the ground.
He doesn't use the
sweepers that grow on riv-
er banks because those
help control bank erosion
and shade the river.
"I get them from .the
swamp, not from the riv-
er," said Maynard, a stone-
mason by trade.
The cedar, debarked and
smoothed, is not finished.
It has a natural shine and
smoothness helped by the
oils of the hands that have
touched it.
He formed the cedars
into woven or sunburst de-
signs.
"The material determines
what the final effects will
be," he said. "The material
has to speak to you. You
can't force it or it'll look
forced."

Some homes have touch-
es that are different for rea-
sons other than the natural
shapes or properties of the
materials.
Not everyone's into ex-
clusively local touches.
Rare Earth Hardwoods
near Traverse City has
made a business of provid-
ing exotic woods to
builders and remodelers.
There's blond-and-red,
mountain-grade bloodwood
that can give a floor an al-
most tigerlike striping or
the aptly named purple-
heart, both of South Ameri-
ca; the honeylike Osage or-
ange of the central United
States; or the red-blond-
and-brown grains of
African Boire.
Rare Earth's Web site
states that the company is
committed to responsible
harvesting, wherever the
wood comes from.
Working in exotic woods,
stones, tiles and similar
materials can take some ex-
tra time. That includes re-
searching the availability
and properties of the mate-
rials and determining if the
providers are using envi-
ronmentally friendly forest
management and other
practices.
"You can spend a lot of
time looking when it's
something that's not com-
mon," Griggs said. "And if
you're working with tropi-
cal woods, you really have
to know who you're deal-
ing with."
Every once in a while, a
homeowner calls on an ar-
tisan to create something to
tell people just whose
house it is.
"I've done some oddball
things, like making 8-foot-
tall baseball bats for (for-
mer Detroit Tiger) Kirk
Gibson," said Tom De-
Jonge, a woodworker in
Harbor Springs.
He's also created log
staircases that appear to
have thick, supporting
beam logs that are curved.
In actuality, that curved-log
effect was achieved with
boards laminated together.
DeJonge has also build a
lot of circular staircases,
some with logs and others
with cut boards.
"Every circular staircase
we've done is different,"
he said. "I like to do things
differently every time any-
way. It keeps you fresh and
keeps you challenged."
Lee Ann Bullough, who
is having a home built in
Traverse City, had DeJonge
create a black-walnut-and-
iron staircase. Instead of a
typical, 90-degree turn, it
features a curve.
She's been impressed
with how his crew has
glued together a couple
hundred of thin pieces of
wood to make it look like a
curving beam.
"It's been a lot of work
for them, but it's been
worth it," she said. "I don't
like cookie-cutter things."
DeJonge and Griggs have
both worked with wooden-
boat builders in the past to
learn some complicated as-
pects of woodworking
where the lines are not all
square.
It's hard work, but De-
Jonge found out early in
his career that he would
prefer to' go in a creative
direction where every job
would be different.
"I was casing office win-


dows in a building for
three weeks," he said. "It
got a little bit boring."
