Country music star Jeff Cook returns HO one home when


for firefighter's bass tournament


Jeff Cook, country mu-
sic star, and his friend,
Randy Kelly, will be
helping the Jasper Fire
Rescue Department
again this year with
their annual Bass Tour-
nament at Bienville
Plantation Saturday,
April 28. Shown at the

eff Cook, of the former
country music group
Alabama, said he is.
very excited to be part
of the. Jasper Volunteer
Fire Fighters Bass Tournament again
this year. Cook and his best friend,
Randy Kelly, who used to live in
Jasper, attended the tournament two
years ago, but a conflict in schedul-
ing prevented them from coming
last year. Cook had to be in
Nashtille to receive an award.
"We did everything possible last
year to come. We even entertained
the idea of trying to change the date
of the award show just to be here,"
Kelly laughed "But it worked:out
this year and we are happy to be

coming."
Cook agrees they were very disap-
pointed to miss the tournament last
year. "We're glad to help out this
year," he added. ;
Cook and Kelly were here for the
Suwannee River Jam last weekend.
After Alabama's farewell tour, Cook
wanted to expand his music styles.
He is now part of another great
band, Cook & Glenn featuring the
All-Star Good time Band, who plays
all types of music.
Cook and the band performed Sat-
urday night and Cook did a walk-on
Friday night with TG Sheppard and
was well received both times.
Their first album is appropriately
titled "Country, Soul & Rock 'n'


mobile home burns


A mobile home
owned by Gary
Gramtham completely
burned and was a total
loss, according to a re-
port from Crossroads
Fire Rescue Depart-
ment. When firefight-
ers arrived at 5425 SW
40th Ave. on Sunday,
April 15, they found
the home fully en-
gulfed in flames.
There was no one
home at the time of the
fire, according to Chief


Roll." Their first single from the al-
bum, Shining Star, will be released
on May 14.
Although Cook's talents include
playing the guitar, bass, fiddle, ban-
jo, piano and other instruments, he is
also an avid fisherman. After five
governors appointed Cook as Alaba-
ma's State Fishing Ambassador,
Governor Bob Riley made it a life-
time appointment. Cook uses his
fishing skills in many tournaments
to benefit children's charities.
After the Jam, they returned to
Fort Payne, Alabama, to take the
equipment trailer back and to bring
the bass boat here for the touma-

Crossroads Depart-
ment was assisted by
Jasper Fire Rescue De-
partment, the report
states. Two sheds were
saved, although there
was minor damage to
the vinyl siding. The
home and contents
were valued at $75,000,
according to the report.
The cause is still un-

cording to Chief Lad-

Stephanie's gift shop closes;




after more than 30 years
e I,. *K^ M


When Willene Drury was a small
child, she helped her grand-daddy,
Charles Edward Smith, in his grocery
store. She decided then she would
have her own store one day.
That day came in 1974, when she
opened a small boutique in Jasper, of-
fering a bridal registry, home acces- .
series and jewelry. Stephanie's,
named after Drury's daughter, was
located in the vacant law office of her
husband, Arvel, who had recently
been elected circuit court judge.


The store was a success and attract-
ed customers from Jasper, as well as
surrounding areas. They came for.
gifts for others and treats for them-
selves silver accent pieces, decora-
tive figurines and beautiful crystal.
As the business grew, so did the
need for more space. In 1980, Drury
bought the Tompkins-Smith Building
on 107 SW Central Ave. in Jasper,
where Stephanie's is now located.
The building was built in 1910 and
was used as a hardware store and


doctor's office. The Suwannee River
Regional Library was housed in the
building for several years, before the
owner, Charlie Lewin, began using it
for storage.
When Drury renovated the build-
ing, she kept the original tin ceiling
squares. The ornate design of the ceil-
ing enhances the elegance of the mer-
chandise she offers.
"Good merchandise, personal at-

Willene Drury is closing the doors of Stephanie's after al-
most 33 years in business. "It has been a wonderful expe-
rience," she said. "Without my loyal customers I could not
have done it."Staff Photo

ment. The two friends en-
joyed their stay at Bienville
Plantation last year and are
looking forward to their
hospitality again.
"Beauchamp and Jeff
Blanton were extraordinari-
ly nice and we want to
thank them for everything
they done when we were
there," Kelly said. "We
couldn't have asked for any
better care. We were treated
like royalty. The plantation
is wonderful. I would high-
ly recommend it to anyone
who enjoys fishing or hunt-
ing."
Kelly said Chris Hughes,
volunteer firefighter and

Manager


Hamilton County Sheriffs
deputy, was instrumental in
bringing Kelly and Cook to
the tournament.
"All this wouldn't have
happened if it had not been
for Chris," Kelly said. "He
made it work."
When Kelly visited with
Hughes last weekend, they
rode around the county.
"It brought back good
memories," Kelly said.
"When we came here two
years ago, I got to see a lot
of old friends and that
meant a lot to me. It felt like
home, and then I realized I
was home."
Kelly said he hopes the
good weather holds and
lots of boats enter the tour- .

much more natural area of the state and en-
joy the beautiful history, culture and natur-
al resources that North Florida has to of-
fer," Faure said. "The Suwannee River and
the people in town make it a good place to
live."
Faure is also manager of two other state
parks Big Shoals State Park and Olustee
Battlefield Historic State park, as well as
portions of the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail.

forward to seeing every-
body again and meeting
some new friends."

ing the tournament this Sat-
urday, April 28, call 386-
792-2181 or 386-792-2211.

of over $7.8 million per year, increases state'
sales tax revenues by more than $550,000
and creates an additional 158 jobs.
"I have never been at.a park where there
is so much support and compassion from
the local citizens and I look forward to
working with each of you in building on
the success and making Stephen Foster
even better," Faure said.

children, Janie and Corey.

tention to service and a gen-
uine appreciation for our
customers, I believe is the
reason I have been success-
ful in this, a business I truly
enjoy," Drury said in an in-
terview with the Jasper New,%
in January 2000.
Drury is now hosting a
store closing event with the
help of a marketing compa-
ny.
Dorothy Milton, who has
been an employee of
Drury's for 32 years and a
long-time friend, said, "It's
hard, but it's time for her to


retire. When I started work-
ing for her, I never thought I
would be here this long.
Each year we have grown
closer."
"Dorothy is a precious
friend," Drury said. "I
thought she and I would al-
ways be here. But it's time
for a new chapter in my life."
Drury does not have any
definite long-term plans for
her retirement, Stephanie
Carter, her daughter, has
planned a summer agenda
for their family, she said, but
after that "I will just' do
whatever relax, travel, play
bridge."

Helping to save lives
The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) recently
announced the availability of a new 811 "Call Before You
Dig" number to help save lives and protect Florida's un-
derground infrastructure. This will prevent homeowners
and professional excavators from damaging underground
utility lines while digging and causing injury or service out-
ages.
Under state and federal law, anyone planning a dig is re-
quired to notify the owners of underground facilities and
pipelines in the area of the dig at least two days in advance.
The PSC approved a plan to implement the nationally des-
ignated 811 number, designed to eliminate the confusion of
multiple "Call Before You Dig" numbers across the coun-
try. The quick and efficient service connects callers with
Sunshine State One Call of Florida, a non-profit corporation
specializing in services to prevent damage to underground
utilities. Sunshine State One Call of Florida then notifies the
appropriate local utilities, who send crews to the requested
site to mark the location of underground lines for free.
A lack of knowledge by the public about the importance
of having utility lines marked before digging can result in
injury or death, costly damages to underground infrastruc-
ture, and utility service disruptions to thousands of people
at a time. For additional information, visit www.floridap-
sc.com

THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL


PAGFE RA










I FluflY APl 2 2007 THE JASPE NEWS, Jas, F PE 7


Many of the events of this
past week, including the ter-
rible tragedy in Blacksburg,
Va., remind us of scripture
in the Gospel according to
St. Matthew (King James) -
"Take therefore no thought
for the morrow. For the mor-
row shall take no thought
for the things of itself. Suffi-
cient unto each day is the
evil thereof." The New
American Standard Bible,
1995 edition, has this version
in language that is, for some,
a little more understandable
"So don't worry about to-
morrow. For tomorrow will
take care of itself. Each day
has enough trouble of its
own."
Please keep the families
and friends of those who lost
their lives in your prayers
and the family of the one
who committed this crime in
your prayers too. We should
be sensitive to the trouble
that everyone experiences
and hold them up in prayer.
Give thanks when God
gives you a blessed day, free
from most of this pain, as we
should give thanks, and not
to be a prophet of doom, but
hope that someone will hold
you up in prayer and offer
you a comforting ear or
shoulder, because as sure as
the sun rises in the morning
- your day and mine is com-
ing.
I am thankful that we
have a friend in the one who
rose triumphant over death,
hell, and the grave, who, de-
spite, our troubles, goes with
us all the way. All these
many troubles around us -
the fire up mn Georgia, the,
family of the Nay pilot'
who died, those military
personnel in the middle East
who are risking their lives
and dying for this nation
each day and many others -
hold these up in your
prayers and tell someone to-
day that you love them and
that you are praying for
them. We all need encour-
agement.
White Springs will be
filled with many wonderful
visual artists on Saturday,
April 28, -as a number of
artists including my good
friend and co-worker Eileen
Sims, will be painting vari-
ous scenes .around White
Springs, as well as selling
them. For more information,
call Robert Townsend at
397-2310.
I am so pleased that the


choral group from South
Hamilton under the direc-
tion of Delores Howell, will
be singing at the 55th annual
Florida Folk Festival. She
does an outstanding job co-
ordinating these perfor-
mances, as well as many
other musical programs. We
appreciate Mrs. Howell,
Waylon Bush, principal,
staff members at SHE who
support these efforts, and
the students, parents and
community members for
their continued support. I
will be at the festival on Fri-
day, May 25, around 10 a.m.
at the Main Stage to hear this
great group.
I am sorry I did not have
the opportunity to attend
the concert given by. Amber
Rowe Jones at New Hope
.Baptist Church. Amber is a
talented vocalist, and I have
been blessed-many times by
the beauty of her songs. I am
thankful Amber is planning
on being even more gener-
ous with her God-given tal-
ents, and I am sure many
will receive-numerous bless-
ings. God bless you, Amber,
for giving to the Lord. I
know Amber's parents, Ce-
cil and Marla Rowe, are very
proud of her, as well as hus-
band Chris Jones and son,
Fisher.
A co-worker, Kristy Dye,
who teaches at Central
Hamilton Elementary, left a
magazine in my chair, a very
beautifully done periodical
called "Virtuous One." It is
published in Jacksonville by
White Springs native and
former student, LeaVonda
Robnmson Battle, Jack-
son -ille. She is the daughter
of Sherree Williams, White
Springs, and has a big fami-
ly connection. The periodi-
cal features faith based-con-
temporary women's issues
and presently has over
90,000 monthly readers. I
wish LeaVonda well for the
future. God bless you.
Captain Bud and "Miss"
Carol held their grand open-
ing of Bud's Sud's on Satur-
day, April 21. A number of
friends and community sup-
porters, as well as those who
came to do laundry stopped
in on Saturday. This is a
wonderful laundry, and I
love all the sailfish mounted
on the wall a testament to
Captain Bud's talents as a
man of the sea. We wish
them all the best at Bud's
Sud's.


My friend, James Comett,
had a huge crowd of folks at
Spirit of the Suwannee Mu-
sic Park, Live Oak, this past
weekend, as they celebrated
the Suwannee River Jam. We
appreciate James and all the
members of the Cornett
Family including "Miss"
Jean Comett "Big Jean" to
James and his brothers, and
"Uncle Charles," Mr.
Charles Carrithers, James'
maternal uncle, for all their
support.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to Sister Ruby Mar-
tin, Branford. Sister Martin,
along with her husband, the


late Rev. Charles Martin
served the Long Branch
Congregational Methodist
Church for many years and
were instrumental in help-
ing spearhead the efforts to
build the current sanctuary.
We wish her many happy
returns.
Many thanks to Melody
Lee of the Jasper News for the
great job she did on writing
the story a couple of weeks

appreciate you, Melody, and
I appreciate all the staff, too.

PFD's and safety stop switches


By Hank Parker

When out on the water
with family or friends, safe-
ty should never be left be-
hind on the dock. One of
the simplest and smartest
things that boaters can do'
is to wear a personal flota-
tion device (PFD) and use a
safety stop switch that is a
regular .feature on most
outboard boats. Research
continually shows that ac-
cidents are often pre-
ventable when priority is
given to common sense


and safety.
S I. ust- admit that earl\- in
my career I wasn't as pro-
safety as I should have
been. It wasn't until after I
met a former sales rep for
Ranger Boats, Blake Hun-
nicutt, that I began to clear-
ly see the unnecessary risks
I had been taking. With a
stem expression and em-'
phasis in his voice, Blake
said, "If you don't wear
.your life jacket and utilize
your safety stop switch,
there will be a time when
you will wish you had."


Since that time, I've had
several situations that
taught me to really appre-
ciate the value of being pre-
pared' before going on the
water. Today, I make it
standard practice to attach
the safety stop switch and
wear my life jacket when
the outboard is running.
The brilliance of a safety
stop switch is that it is a cir-
cuit breaker that stops the
motor when activated. The
switch is connected from
the ignition control to the
driver by a clip-on lanyard.


Many competitive tour-
naments state in their rules
:Life jackets must be worn
and securely fastened with
a safety stop switch at-
tached. anytime the out-
board motor is running." If
you unknowingly take
your boat off the trailer at
the start of a tournament
without wearing your life
jacket and someone no-
tices, it could cost you the
check you might have won.'
Even if you abide by the
rules at every tournament,
no tournament director can


bend the rules if you- are
caught.in, theror here
are many' peer_ -who
wouldn't mind seeing you
get disqualified for making
a simple mistake. Until you
have taken part in a tourna-
ment, it's best not to under-
estimate the intense level of
competition that takes
place. Once you're on the
water, friendships are put
to the side but they should
never be put at risk by fail-
ing to follow .-common
sense safety precautions.
In short although many


Boaters regard life jackets
4 safet .stopP s. ayithes
'as nuisAnced, it is the-right
thing to do, period. No
more discussion should be
required. So enjoy your
time on the water. Use a
good dose of common
sense and make boating
safety a priority.
For more information,
you can contact the U.S.
Coast Guard at 800-368-
5647 or the United States
Power Squadrons at 888-

By Hank Parker

Throughout history, sailors have used
plenty of things to help them find their
way around the water. Whether they nav-
igated by the stars or landmarks (if they
were within sight of land) or other primi-
tive instruments, they used these tools -
often 'to a great degree of success to en-
sure safer, quicker travel.
These days, with the. exception of some
of the country's bigger lakes, most fresh-
water anglers aren't out of sight of land.
Usually we find our way around the lake,
by recognizing coves, marinas, boat docks,
houses, etc. But' when it's dark, foggy or
the lake is too big or too strange to find"
your way around, what then?
Like the sailors of the past, we must be-
come proficient with the navigational
tools that are at our disposal. And in addi-
tion to being able to find your way back to
the boat launch in the dark, it can also help
your fishing.
Due to technological advances that have
brought about many affordable forms of
global positioning system (GPS), you can
pick one up at almost any sporting goods
store.
The GPS is guided by a series of satel-
lites that circle the earth, each with a dis-
tinctive signal. The signal is sent by the'
satellites to a receiver (the unit mounted
on your boat). The receiver will then be
able to tell you your location on earth with
up to 15 feet of accuracy.
The obvious reason for such a tool is
peace of mind. Whether your GPS unit
comes pre-loaded with maps of various
lakes or if you have to purchase the maps


separately,' once you launch your boat,
your GPS system will allow you to store
your current location as a waypoint. Most
models allow you to name the waypoints
with names like "launch" or "home." By
following your trail back to this waypoint
(remember in the dark to keep an eye on
your depth finder so that you do not run
aground or into obstacles in shallow wa-
ter), you can successfully navigate your
way back to the launch in darkness or in-
clement weather. Also, some detailed lake
maps will show you such things as mari-
nas and restaurants.
In addition to providing navigation
help, GPS systems can also be powerful
fishing aids. Detailed maps on some boat-
mounted GPS units also show water
depth and bottom contours. This informa-
tion is critical when searching for bottom
structure that holds fish. Also, you can set
a waypoint on your GPS to mark any spot
that you might want to return to fish at a
later time. This is perfect for marking
channels or other areas or even marking
things like shipwrecks, which can hold
lots of fish but can also hang up a lot of
rour tackle.
There's no limit to the things you can do
with a GPS on your boat. Whether it's nav-
igation, finding fish or structure, or accu-
rately measuring your speed, a GPS is
more than a luxury these days. If your
bass boat didn't come with one from the
factory, make getting one a priority and
learn all you can about it. Once you learn
all it is capable of, you find it as invaluable
as I do.
A two-time champion of the Bassmaster
Classic, Ranger Pro Hank Parker is the host of
"Hank Parker's Outdoor Magazine."

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


There has been so
much turmoil in
the newspapers
and on the TV in the past
week, since I last wrote. It
is hoped that some of the
news you will get from this
week will be at least some-
what uplifting. There are
good things happening
and while we pray for, and
grieve with, those who are
suffering, and know of the
concerns of our friends in
our midst, we rejoice and
are thankful for the bless-
ings we receive each day.
We know, and you know,
of friends locally who are
going through difficult
times, let them know that
we care for them.
Although you have suf-
fered with me through the
difficulties of dealing with
the computer sometimes,
however how very thank-
ful I am for this means of
communication. Thinking
back to times when we had
to get out a paper "in the
olden days," it is hard to
imagine how we did it. I
have been trying, and suc-
cessful mostly, with en-
couraging, the use of it in
my work, and in our
Church dealings.
Also, in recent times we
have learned in telephone
conversations, talking with
friends in other areas, that
there are telephone sys-
tems you can buy with
some companIies where
you can talk as long as you
want to on a monthly basis
fee. Having had two con-
versations in recent weeks
with two friends, in other
areas, one using Verizon
and one with AT&T, and
enjoying not having to cut'
the conversations short,
when friends have called.


remind-
ing me that we can talk as
long as we want.
They bring me news of
them and their families,
and events in their lives.
Mentioning this to Ben,
however, he did not think
we can have access to any
of these services in our
area. Oh, well, we will let
them call us!
As an insert I was in the
dental office, and learned
that Alltel did have some-
thing similar to this, and
maybe our new system
does. I think I will look into
this; it won't hurt to try.
Erin Hall, bride-elect of
Michael Hudd Jr., was hon-
ored at a miscellaneous
shower on Saturday morn-
ing, April 21, in the Fellow-
ship Hall of Jasper Presby-
terian Church. Hostesses
were friends of Erin and
her family.
Erin, will graduate from
the University of Florida
April 25. She will be mar-
ried Aug. 3, in Jamaica.
Mike is currently em-
ployed by the Middlesex
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment in Massachusetts. She
and her husband will live
in Stoneham, Mass. Erin in-
tends to work part-time
and pursue her Masters
Degree. Erin and Mike met
at junior college in Ocala
where he was on a baseball
scholarship.
Special guests at the
shower were Erin's moth-
er, Cathy M. Hall; Erin's
grandmother, Betty Jane
Mitchell; sister Beth Hall;
great aunts Abbie Wicker
and Estelle Reistad; and
Sandra Frier, Live Oak. '
Erin is the daughter .of
Jay and Cathy Hall. Mater-
Inal grandparents are Clin-


ton and Betty Jane Mitchell.
Paternal grandparents are
the late JW and Gertrude
Hall, Jasper.
Hostesses for the shower
were friends of the family,
and as usual it was a festive
occasion. Erin was beauti-
ful in a white summer
dress, it was a fun time and
she received many lovely
gifts. The center table was
decorated with a beautiful
floral arrangement, punch
was served from a silver
punch bowl, and the table
was filled with delicious
foods, favorites provided
by the hostesses. Cathy,
mother of the bride-to-be,
said, "The shower was
beautiful, the food was ex-
cellent, and the fellowship
tremendous!" Our best
wishes go with Erin and
Mike as they start their life
together.
One of the special tele-
phone calls received was
from Terry Bennett. It is
wonderful to hear from
him. This is only a "tip .of
the iceberg" to what was
learned from him. I ex-
plained to him that I was
disappointed to learn that
he was leaving his work at
Hamilton County High
School, as he brought so
many good experiences to
our school and community,
but hearing of his activity
and experiences in his pre-
sent position, would not
deny him this experience.
As you may recall, he had
served in various capacities
before returning to Hamil-
ton County to teach during
his mother's illness, we
-were recipients of his ex-
pertise.
Terry is approaching the
.end of his second year on
the faculty of Calhoun
High School in Georgia. In
the last two years, he has
coached in the National
Ocean Sciences Bowl,
taught pre-International
Baccalaureate biology, gen-


eral biology and remedial
science. His NOSB team
achieved its highest rank-
ing this year with a finish
in the quarterfinals and an
eighth place award among
the 21 teams entered. He is
the academic team coach,
the National Science Bowl
coach, academic advisor
for athletes and the co-
sponsor of the Senior Beta
Club. His Beta quiz team
finished in sixth place out
of 56 teams entered.
Terry spent two weeks as
a faculty participant in the
Oak Ridge, Tenn., Associ-
ated Universities / Ap-
palachian Regional Com-
mission's Summer Math,
Science and Technology In-
stitute. One of his biology
students also studied in the
program and two Calhoun
High students have been
selected for the 2007 pro-
gram. In late July, he was
one of two Georgia Ocean
Sciences Bowl coaches. se-
lected to attend the first-
ever national coaching
workshop in Washington,
DC. They were housed in
Georgetown and treated to
a behind-the-scenes tour of
the upcoming Hall of
'Oceans that will open at
the Smithsonian in three
years.
Calhouri High has an au-
thorized an EFT tour of
Italy and Switzerland for
spring break 2008 and his
maternal aunt, Jean Griffey
from Chattanooga, Tenn.,
will travel with this
scholastic tour. Terry
taught at HCHS in 1984
through 1985 and 2004
through 2005. He is the son
of John Lewis Sr. and the
late Mary Lewis of Jen-
nings. He encourages his
Hamilton County friends
to -contact him at tben-

Let me hear from you.

CNHI News Service
If Cara Whitney hadn't gotten to the birth
certificate first, she might have a son named
"Got-R-Did."
But Cara, who married Larry the Cable
Guy in 2005, prevailed with the name Wyatt
for their son born in August. Cara doesn't go
by "Mrs. Cable Guy." She and Wyatt use the
name Whitney, Larry's real surname.
Larry's choice of baby names comes from
the catch phrase "Git-R-Done," which he
made famous as one of the most widely
quoted and marketed comedians today. His
other catch phrases include "That's funny,
right there; I don't care who you are," and
"Lord, I apologize."
Born Daniel Lawrence Whitney on Feb.
17, 1963, in Pawnee City, Neb., Larry
adopted his stage name from an early radio
show persona, which happened to be south-
ern.
Now known,as part of the Blue Collar
Comedy Tour with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill En-
gvall and Ron White, and a bonafide movie
actor, Larry is on tour. His latest projects in-
clude a new CD, "Morning Constitutions,"
which will also be released as a DVD in
June and air as a Comedy Channel special
June 3, and a film, "Delta Farce," will be in
theaters May 11.
He previously starred in "Larry the Cable
Guy: Health Inspector" and was the voice of
Mater in the animated film "Cars," both re-
leased in 2006.
Larry has also developed an animated
half-hour pilot for Comedy Central. He cre-
ated, wrote and will star in the show, which
will begin production this year.
In Larry's wordsLarry the Cable Guy may
have cultivated his reputation as a simple
guy, but the reasons behind his appeal are
complicated. -
Though his comedy has drawn thousands
of fans (his CD "The Right to Bare Arms"
was the first comedy album to hit No. 1 on


lat's funny


Larry the Cable Gu


,country charts), he also has detractors.
While much of his act focuses on his fiction-
al family and jokes about bodily functions,
he also makes jokes targeting the handi-
capped (including a running gag about a
deaf brother with Tourette's syndrome).
He refuses, however, to use four-letter
words in his act.
Still, his comedy reaches a broad enough
audience that "Git-R-Done" apparel, key
rings and baseball caps are hot sellers.
In a recent interview, Larry talked about
his career and his success:
:: What rating would you give your
shows?

A: PC-17 politically correct for 17
seconds. If you bring kids, you'll
have to cover their ears probably
five times. Actually, PG-14 is probably the
rating I would give my show.
Q: It would seem your biggest fan
base is in the South, or have you
been surprised to find a large fan
base outside the South?
A: Misconception. I have great fans
and play to packed venues all over
the country. My fans are awesome. By the
nway, I'm huge in Chinatown. Did you know
that "Git-R-Done" is spelled with the sym-
bol of an upside down house with a duck in
it?
:How do you sound so Southern
if you were raised in Nebraska?

: Another misconception. I have
relatives in Nebraska, Kansas and
Missouri. In some parts of South-
east Nebraska and Missouri, you hear some
Southern accents. I grew up and worked in a

cattle barn when I was a kid and a few of
them old farmers had a bit of a twang. Also,
my dad was a backwoods preacher and used
to have a drawl when he would get fired up
preachin'. I've always been a dialect
chameleon, so going into a Southern accent
was always really easy for me to do as a kid.
It wasn't until I moved to Florida and started
hanging out with Florida crackers that I real-
ly learned it. I went to college in Decatur,
Ga., and my roommate was from Dalton and
had the thickest southern accent I had heard.
I perfected it from him. It's almost impossi-
ble to live with a dude from Dalton and not
talk like him after four years. Later, when I
met Jeff Foxworthy we used to riff stories
off one another using Southern accents.
From that point on, it just kind of evolved.
'Now it's to the point when I'm with my
Florida buddies, it just comes out naturally
without even realizing.
: Talk about your new CD and,
movie.

:A : The new CD is called "Morning
Constitutions." This is my fourth
CD I have put out and can honest-
ly say I think it's my best. I don't stray too
far from what I know and do best, which is
one-liner type comedy and this CD is
packed with laughs from beginning to end. I
love doing this style of comedy and think
it's a style that's kind of been forgotten. My
new movie is call "Delta Farce," with Bill
Engvall and D.J. Qualls and it's kinda like
"The Three Stooges meets Platoon." When
we Blue Collar guys visited Walter Reed
Hospital, I got the idea from the troops
when they all said they loved our stuff and
that they had "Git-R-Done" written all over
the place in the Middle East. They said that
they liked "Health Inspector" and that I
should do a funny army movie kinda like
"Stripes," so we came up with a script called
"Delta Farce" about these three goofballs
that accidentally get called to go to Iraq and
on the way over the C-130 hits some bad
weather and dumps'a Humvee they are
sleeping' in out of the back and it parachutes
down to the desert and when they wake up
they think they're in Iraq but are really in
Mexico. I'm wiping off my mantle now for
the Oscar.
,: How does your family particu-
larly your sisters, if you really
have them, and grandmother feel
about your family jokes?
: They all have a great sense of hu-
mor and understand they are all
jokes. One time my overweight sis-
ter got mad because I said Cracker Barrel


Larry the Cable Guy. Courtesy photo
had a restraining order out on her, but she.
got over it real quick when she went there
and they said, "Hey, you're Larry's fat sis-
ter," and gave her extra biscuits so now
she's kind of a celebrity and wanted me to
write more jokes about her.
: Were you surprised when "Git-
R-Done" became a catch phrase?
Do you ever get tired of your fans
expecting to hear it?
: I never get sick of my fans
yelling, "Git-R-Done!" It's a fun
thing to say and funny and it's
what helped me get my name out. [love it
and loe when people say it. I'Fe named my
children Git-R-Done and Got-R-Did!
At what moment did you know
you were famous?

: When I signed an autograph at a
urinal.

:; What do you do with all your
shirt-less sleeves?

: l usually sign them and give them
aw ay to charities.


Q: What are the upcoming plans for
the Blue Collar bunch?

A: No plans as of now because we're
all doing other things. We are all
good friends and speak frequently.
We wanted to maybe do Blue Col-
lar on Ice, but it's hard enough for Ron to
walk on land "while he's dnnking, let alone
ice! That's funny. I don't care who ya are.
.Q : What is it like working with Jeff,
Bill and Ron"


A


I: t was the time of my life. I love
them like brothers and wouldn't
trade any of those experiences for
anything. Just a flat-out blast!


: What's the dumbest thing you
ever did?.

A : We went toilet papering houses
on Halloween when I was a kid

Keep 'Pink Eye' From Coming Back


Most parents are familiar with conjunctivitis. While the
official name likely won't ring a bell, its more common name,
"pink eye," surely will.
An inflammation of the membrane that covers the whites of
the eyes as well as the inner eyelid, pink eye seems to affect
every kid at least once. But some parents might not know that
conjunctivitis comes in different forms, each with different
symptoms and signs.
Bacterial conjunctivitis: this will be in both eyes and result
in a heavy, greenish discharge.
Viral conjunctivitis: this typically affects just one eye,
resulting in slight watering and a light discharge.
Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC): arguably the most
severe form of conjunctivitis, this affects both eyes and can
hinder a person's ability to wear contact lenses. It's also
characterized by itching, red bumps on the inside of the eyelids,
and heavy discharge and tearing.
Allergic conjunctivitis: this will also affect both eyes and
result in an itching sensation and redness. In some instances,
the nose will experience those symptoms as well. Excessive
tearing is also common.
Because there are different types of conjunctivitis, the causes
vary. GPC sufferers often find their contact lenses cause and
aggravate the symptoms, while people with allergic
conjunctivitis will find that allergens, such as dust or pollen,
trigger the problem.
The best thing a parent can do to help their child is have them
avoid anything that has caused or can cause conjunctivitis.
Because conjunctivitis is so contagious, keeping it under wraps
is essential for both your child and the people your child spends
time with. Some good tips for keeping the condition from
worsening or spreading include:
Wash your hands. Anyone who's had conjunctivitis, even a
mild case, knows howhard it is to avoid touching or rubbing
your eye. If your child does either of those things, wash their
hands immediately and remind them to do their best to keep
their hands away from the infected areas.
Don't share. While every parent wants to teach their
children to share, in this instance, not sharing should earn a
child brownie points. Wash cloths, towels and pillowcases
should not be shared. Once a wash cloth or towel has been
used, launder immediately. After your child wakes up in the
morning, change the pillowcases and wash those immediately
as well.
Not sharing extends beyond the linen closet as well. Eye care
products, such as drops or lens cleaners, should not be shared,


Children v. lho epeatedl bhanle bouts of conjunctivitis might be due for an eye examination.

nor should mascara or other cosmetic items.
Avoid close contact with others. While parents will want
to kiss their kids goodnight, do so with caution while not
alienating your child.
Seek a doctor's advice. If your child wears contact lenses
but conjunctivitis keeps coming back, it might be time to
revert to regular eyeglasses. If a child doesn't wear glasses but
has a history of conjunctivitis, bring that up with their eye
doctor, especially if the doctor feels it's time for glasses or
contact lenses.

Warm temperatures,


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson recently
warned of a higher wildfire threat this spring
due to warm temperatures and a lack of wide-
spread rainfall. Although wildfires can occur
throughout the year in Florida, the most active
time for wildfires is from March to June. Be-
cause of the higher wildfire danger, Bronson
is asking all Floridians to be extremely care-
ful with outdoor burning.
"People are the major cause of wildfires in
Florida whether it is the crime of arson, es-
caped fire from land-clearing, children exper-
imenting with matches or an unattended yard
fire," Bronson said. "People are responsible
for about 85 percent of all Florida wildfires."
For many people, disposing of yard waste

lack of rainfall increasing wildfire threat


(leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs, palm
fronds, etc.) with a small fire is a routine part
of spring cleaning. This activity is permitted
in most Florida counties without any specific
authorization.
But Bronson emphasized that the fire must
be attended at all times and be in a pile no
greater than 8 feet in diameter, or in a non-
combustible container. In addition, the fire
must be at least 25 feet from the home of the
person burning or any wooded area, at least
50 feet from any paved roadway and at least
150 feet from other occupied buildings.
If the wildfire threat becomes severe, coun-
ties, municipalities or the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services could
enact a burn ban that prohibits all outdoor

burning until weather conditions improve.
Residents should check with their local office
of the Florida Division of Forestry or the
nearest fire department to learn if a bum ban
is in effect and how to bum legally and safe-
ly.
"We all need to be sure that our careless-
ness does not create a wildfire that endangers
the property of others," Bronson said.
Inadequate or widely scattered precipitation
typically means an increased wildfire danger
and is monitored by the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index (KBDI). The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index measures the amount of mois-
ture in the upper three feet of soil on a scale


which ranges from 0 (flood conditions) to 800
(desert-like conditions). In recent weeks, the
KBDI has risen to a statewide average of 404,
with a simultaneous increase in the number of
wildfires. Twenty percent of the state is now
recording KBDI measurements of over 600.
The Division of Forestry maintains a toll-
free Arson Alert Hotline 800-342-5869 for
anonymous tips on arson in wooded or forest-
ed areas and offers a reward of up to $5,000
for information leading to the conviction of
an arsonist.
Since Jan. 1, the Division of Forestry has
responded to 516 wildfires that have burned
31,470 acres.

Salmon and tuna provide rich sources of

health-enhancing Omega-3 fatty acids


FAMILY FEATURES
I imagine a food low in carbohydrates, fat and calories but high in protein.
Imagine a food that improves heart health, reduces hyperterisio'n, boosts
the immune system, helps fight autoimmune disease, improves mental
health and cognitive performance and reduces the risk of certain cancers.
Sound fishy? It is!
Omega-3 powerhouse foods like tuna, salmon and sardines boast a lengthy
list of health benefits, as well as amazing versatility and ease in the kitchen.
"Salmon and albacore tuna are especially low in fat, contain high amounts
of protein and have a variety of essential vitamins and minerals," says regis-
tered dietitian Margo Kraus, a nutritional consultant for Bumble Bee Foods
and a champion of healthy eating habits.
Kraus notes that salmon, tuna and sardines are all excellent sources of
Omega-3 fatty acids, and the conveniently packed Bumble Bee canned
-and pouched seafoods lend themselves well to simple and flavorful food
preparations.
A colorful Mediterranean pasta featuring tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, red
bell pepper, olives and tuna makes short work of dinner. A quick saut6 in the
skillet turns out a zesty sauce, perfect for tossing over your favorite pasta.
Add a dash of aged grated parmesan, a pinch of hot pepper flakes or a sprink-
ling of minced parsley, and you have a dish elegant enough for company or
simple enough for weeknight family fare.
In the mood for a good sandwich? Try a tasty salmon burger spiked with
lemon zest and Dijon, married with crisp celery and green onions. Top it off
with a savory, creamy dill sauce. Add some chunky slaw and oven-baked
potato wedges to round out the nieal.
Whatever the preparation, the American Heart Association recommends
eating fish (particularly fish with Omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna
and sardines) at least two times a week as part of a healthy diet. Your doctor
will thank you ... and so will your taste buds.

Geocaching provides family entertainment


By Lindsay J. Spaulding
CNHI News Service

AVON, Ind. The Novreske fam-
ily recently discovered a new hobby
that they can all participate in -
Geocaching.
Geocaching is a sport or activity
that uses a GPS device to locate hid-
den "caches."
The Geocaching website describes
the basic idea as having individuals
and organizations set up caches all
over the world and share the loca-
tions of those caches on the Internet.
GPS users can then use the location
coordinates to find the caches. Once
found, a cache may provide the visi-
tor with a variety of rewards, and all
the visitor is asked to do is leave
something behind for the next per-
son.
Dan and Angel Novreske, along
with their 7-year-old son Jared and 5-
year-old twins Matthew and Ashley,
have been G'eocaching for about two
months now. They purchased a "mid-
dle-of-the-road" GPS device and
quickly became involved in the ac-
tivity.
Dan said the GPS devises cost any-
where from $80 to several hundred
dollars.,
"The kids think it's treasure hunt-
ing," Dan said. "They have a lot of
fun."
The family visited McCloud Na-
ture Park in North Salem over spring
break to hunt for caches.
Caches are often found in parks,
they said, but also cemeteries and
rest stops. They said there are a num-
ber of caches in Brown County, and
even one on Monument Circle in
downtown Indianapolis.
'Dan and Angel recently traveled to
Pennsylvania and searched for
caches along the way.
Several guidelines go along with
Geocaching to ensure it's fun for
everyone. Caches are to be hidden
above-ground only, and no shovels
are allowed on hunts.
The Novreskes currently have two
caches hidden in Washington Town-
ship Park. One is called "JAM's
Cache on the Sparrow." JAM, of
course, stands for "Jared, Ashley, and
Matthew," and Sparrow refers" to the


name of the trail that runs through
the park.
Most caches contain items for peo-
ple who find them to take and leave,
along with a notebook that logs who
has visited and where they're from.
Some caches have a "travel bug"
planted in them. A travel bug resem-
bles a dog tag necklace and has a pic-
ture of a bug on it with a unique
tracking number. When caches with
travel bugs are found, the finder
takes it, and places it in another
cache. Sometimes the travel bugs
have specific instructions as to where
the owner wants it to go next.
Angel explained that there are sev-
eral types of caches. The traditional
cache is placed in an ammo box or
Rubbermaid container, and has trin-
kets and small items in it. A micro
cache is a smaller version, and is
more difficult to find because it's
easier to hide. And a virtual cache is
an item or place that already exists,
such as a scenic view or a tombstone.
Caches are listed on the website
and visitors can search by zip code to
find ones nearby. Some GPS devices
have the capability to be plugged di-
rectly into the computer to allow the'
caches locations to download to the
device. They can be loaded manually
as well.
Each cache has a nickname, and
the person who hides it uses a screen
name. The date it was hidden is list-
ed, as well as each time it's found. If
it has a travel bug, the number on it is
entered, so the owner can track its
progress. The caches are rated from
one to five, depending on the degree
of difficulty to find and theterrain, as
well as whether they're kid-friendly.
"For some of the caches you have
to drive off-road to find them," Dan
said. "You'might have to drive all
day to get there."
Angel added, "We try to find two
or three a day. Jared has probably
found the most."
When Geocachers search for
caches, they have to be on the look-
out for "muggles," or people who
watch them find the cache, then go
and take everything out of it when
they leave.
"We were at thepark finding a
cache, atid Jatgd 'saw peopt'ctoming -

Pioneer women's lives chronicled


By Betty Smith
CNHI News Service
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. Pioneer
women scratched a living from the
earth because they had so little to
work with.
They watched family members
murdered by outlaws and endured the
hardships of the Civil War in eastern
Oklahoma.
These women and their descen-
dants told their stories to 112 partici-
pants in the Works Progress Adminis-
tration Writers' Project in 1936 and
1937. Many of their accounts will be
part of a book compiled by Dr. Terri
Baker and Connie Henshaw of North-
eastern State University. The book
goes to the publisher later this.
year.During the 1930s, the interviews
with the pioneer women were com-
piled by legendary Oklahoma histori-
an Grant Foreman. They consisted of
about 45,000 pages.
"The best interviews were gathered
by women," Baker said. "It apparent-
ly was easier for a pioneer woman to
relate to another woman, as they
rocked on the porch or performed
household tasks."Baker, chair of the
NSU Department of Languages and
Literature, and Henshaw, lecturer in
the Department of English, gave a
moving presentation of these .
'women's narratives Thursday during



5 DYS

ONaLY!


the 35th annual Symposium on the
American Indian.
"They were living universal experi-
ences as women," Baker said. 'The
women thought their experiences
were worth recording, and this is an
important point."Some women quot-
ed related their own experiences,
while others spoke of their mothers
and grandmothers.
"We're not historians," Baker said.
"Rather, we're literary scholars with
an interest in history."
She commented on the narratives
while Henshaw read excerpts from
the interviews conducted with the
women during the Depression.
The stories they presented dated to
the Trail of Tears, when one woman
related an ancestor's tale of an officer
who killed a 4-day-old infant because
it wouldn't stop crying. He "dashed
its little head against a tree and killed
it."
Others date to the early part of the
20th century and the days surround-
ing statehood.Baker and Henshaw
have been asked many questions, es-
pecially by students and other
women, about their research and what
pioneer women's lives were like.
What did they wear? What were
their houses like? What did they
cook? Who helped them deliver their
babies? Did they work all the


time?"That answer was usually yes,"
Baker said.
Women also asked them about do-
mestic violence in pioneer days. Hen-
shaw recounted the story of a women
who supposedly had gone to another
city with other people. Her body later
was found in a creek. She supposedly
was killed by her husband, although
nothing was ever done about it.Baker
said the average person's lifespan
during pioneer days was 40 years.
Ages of the women interviewed range
from 40 to 104.
Henshaw told of a Chickasaw-
Cherokee woman who used to hoe
the garden with her grandmother,
who insisted on wearing her hoops
even for that task. The only time the
grandmother wouldn't wear her
hoops was during a thunderstorm, for
she was afraid the metal hoops would
attract lightning. So family members
crafted her some hoops of briarwood
for use during those days.
The woman who.told that story
also talked of building rail fences,
sawing timber, and working in the
fields.
"As women, would we have been
so brave, so stalwart?" Baker said.
"Did those women think they were
brave, or just that they were doing
what they thought they should have
been doing?"She said many people

Boyd works for north


Florida communities


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida), a mem-
ber of the House Budget
Committee, recently criti-
cized the Administration's
Fiscal Year 2008 Budget for
proposed cuts to programs
that are vital to our rural
communities. The Presi-.
dent's budget freezes fund-
ing for rural education, phas-
es out rural health grants,
and proposes another round
of cuts to Commnumty De-
velopment Block Grants
(CDBGs).
The Administration's bud-
get provides $2.6 billion for
CDBGs. which local com-
munities use to address chal-
lenges like affordable hous-
ing, job creation, and eco-
nomic development. This is
a cut of $1 I billion, or 29.4
percent, below the 2007 lev-
el.
"The Administration's
budget cuts back on pro-
grams that help our commu-
nities meet their most press-
ing needs," said Boyd. "'The
CDBG program is a signa-
ture program in North Flori-
da that helps to create jobs,
spur economic development
and small business opportu-
nities, and expand home-
ownership. CDBG is a pro-
gram that %% ork in our com-


munities, and this proposed
reduction undermines the
economic well-being of
Florida's communities."
The President's budget
also reduces the Clean Water
State Revolving Fund by
$396 million from the 2007
level, providing only $688
million for 2008. The Clean
Water State Revolving Fund
is used to enhance water
quality by helping local
communities improve drink-
ing water and sewage treat-
ment facilities. Many coun-
ties in North Florida, includ-
ing Leon. Jefferson, Taylor,
Jackson and Bay Counties,
have utilized this program in
the past.
"Throughout North Flori-
da, there is significant de-
mand for water and waste-
water treatment expansion
and modernization, but the
Administration's budget
does not recognize this
need." Boyd stated. "Ameri-
cans deserves a fiscally re-
sponsible budget that does
not shortchange our rural
communities. I will work
with my colleagues in the
House Budget Committee to
reject these proposals and
fight the Administration's at-
tempt to harm rural Ameri-
ca.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
After 15 years, my washing machine
finally quit. Just before the rinse
cycle it made a loud clanking sound
and never started again. It was clear
it was dead. It took me over an hour
to rinse the clothes by hand. And
that's not something I like to do with
my husband's dirty socks! When I
went to the appliance store, I was
surprised to find out that a good
washing machine was upwards of
$500 or more. And that price jumped
to over $10 O0 if you added the
matching dryer, I could live with the
new styles, but the cost was too
much for me, After all. it's a washing
machine, not a rocket ship. I see
them advertised In the classified all
the time, but I have a problem. It
seems very unhygienic to buy a used
washing machine. I mean, someone
else's dirty clothes were in it just like
my husbands socks. Who
knows what filth was left
behind? Tell me, should I
be concerned about the ._ _
germs? Please help, the
laundry is piling up quick.

Carry: Sounds like you're worried
.about ohier po'pl"', di r laundry. But if
you can ring out your husband's dirty


socks by hand, them buying a used
machine shouldn't be a big deal.
Cash: Viruses, bacteria and thousands
of other microorganisms are around us
everyday. You constantly come in con-
tact with them just by pressing an eleva-
tor button, turning a bathroom doorknob
or passing your credit card back and
forth to the cashier.
Carry: It's actually amazing that our
bodies fight off these germs on a daily
basis.
Cash: However, when buying a used
washing machine, you can relax. While
it is possible some residue was left
behind from a previous washing, it can
be cleaned and washed away. Today's
detergents, bleach and other disinfectants


are very good at removing germs from
clothing and the-washing machine.
Carry: Otherwise, laundromats would
have a difficult time staying in business.
Their washing machines are used daily
by many different people.
Cash: After you buy a used washing
machine, simply run it through its cycles
a few times without clothing. Set it to
use hot water and add a high concentra-
tion of bleach or other disinfectant. A
few washings should remove any
unwanted germs. When it's complete,
wipe down the inside of the washer and
you're all set to go.
Carry: Before you know it, your hus-
band's socks will smell lemony fresh.
That is, until he wears them again!


Germ War
Germs are everywhere. Most of us go
about our day without worrying about
them. However, for others, the fear of
germs can be debilitating. Mysophobia,
sometimes called "germ phobia", is an
anxiety disorder where people have a fear
of dirt or contamination. Even celebrities
such as Howie Mandel, host of the TV
show Deal or No Deal, suffer from the
disorder. But these people are not alone.
According to the National Instituite for
Mental Health, more than 26% of the
population suffers from some sort of
anxiety or diagnosable mental disorder.
Efficiency
Many of us take for granted that we
can wash an entire weeks worth of cloth-
ing with just a turn of a dial. That's all
thanks to the first rotary washing
machine, patented in 1858. Today we
have more choices than ever. If you're in
the market for a new machine, consider
this. While roughly 95% of the washers
sold are top loading, front-end loading
machines are typically more efficient.
They use 40% to 60% less water, 30% to
50% less energy, spin faster and use less
detergent.

New Fairfield. CT 06812.


Spin Cycle
While I was away on a business
trip, our washing machine broke.
My husband, who stayedhome with
the kids, is not a Mr. Fix-It kind of
guy. Instead, he called the local
appliance store and immediately
ordered a new one.
The day after I arrived home, the
new machine was dropped off and
hooked up. I was trying to catch up
on the laundry when my husband
came in and pleaded for me to wash
his favorite shirt.
Jokingly, I told him to just wear it
inside out for the day. While I
laughed, he stood there holding his
shirt and replied, "I can't wear it
inside'out."
To my surprise he continued, "I
already did that yesterday!""
(Thanks to Gina W.)



Sounds like a manly washing machine.

Plans underway for 'huge'



Civil War encampment


By Katie Farrell
CNHI News Service
AMESBURY, Mass. -
Last year's "Raise the Arm!"
Civil War Encampment was
barely over before Paul
Jancewicz began planning
this year's event: a two-day
festival that is expected to
draw thousands of people to
Amesbury over a summer
weekend.Though the event is
six weeks away | set for June
2 to 3, at Woodsom Farm [
Jancewicz called the months
of preparing to bring the
large-scale exhibit to Ames-
bury "intense." Jancewicz,
who is organizing the event
with Lars Johannessen and
Steve Klomps, said they are
preparing for as many as 500
re-enactors, and no fewer than
300, over the course of the
weekend. A camp will be set
up at Woodsom Farm with
tents where, the participants
will stay."
For this area, it's huge,".
Jancewicz said. "It's probably
the biggest (re-enactment) to
occur in this part of Massa-
chusetts. We haven't been do-
ing much Civil War re-enact-
ing up this \wa\ "
The theme this \ear ""NTwo"
Arns!" contmues last N ear's
effort to raise fundmg to re-
store the ll th MNassachuserts
Infantry monument in Gemt.s-
burg. Pa. The starme \%as \an-
dalized, toppled and pieces
\\ere stolen, including the
arm. The name is also meant
to paN tribute to .Anesbur\
being the birthplace of two
local abolitionists. William
Llo\d Gamson and John
Greenleaf Whittier. Jancew icz
said. The theme also relates to
the fact that it is the second


gathering and is meant as a
play on the "To Arms!" re-
cruitment call for volunteers
during the Civil War, he
added..
Proceeds from this year's
event will again go toward
"raising the arm" at Gettys-
burg and monument preserva-
tion, Jancewicz said. Last
year, the event raised $2,500
toward repairing the.broken
statue.
"For such a small commu-
nity, that's a great thing,"
Jancewicz said. "They' were
extremely grateful."
The re-enactment will be
held rain or shine and is free
to the public, but donations
will be accepted. Events be-
gin 'at 9 a.m. Jancewicz is still
planning the final schedule pf
events, but programs will in-
clude battle re-enactments,
drill and weapon demonstra-
tions, living history presenta-
tions and period-based song
and poetry ceremonies. Con-
cessions will be sold by the
Bartlett Museum.
Re-enactors will come from
all around New England,
Jancewicz said, including
Connecticut, Rhode Island,
Vermont and Maine. The New
England Brigade and The
LibertA Gie\s are among the
groups that \ ill attend to take
part in the battle re-enact-
ments Historical figures \ ill
likelN be portrayed b\ re-en-
actors,. including Robert E.
Lee. Ull sses S. Grant. and
perhaps exen Abe
Lincoln Booths will be set up
display\ ing and selling replicas
of items from the Civil War
era. Jance\xicz said Local or-
ganizations, including the
Girl Scouts and Bo\ Scouts,.


are slated to help out during
the day. Jancewicz, a high
school history teacher, said
some of his current and for-
mer students will also be at-
tending the re-enactment. Of
course, as with any large out-
door event, one item of cloth-
ing is very important I
Jancewicz cautioned partici-
pants to wear a good pair of
shoes. "People should plan on
walking," he said.
Organizers are hoping to
bring in a shuttle to bring
people to the different battle
scenes, as well as around to
Amesbury's museums or his-
torical sites, but no definite
plans have been made.
The Newburyport Five
Cent Savings Bank, the Prov-
ident Bank. and SPS New
England are sponsoring the
Civil War Re-enactment. For
more information, e-mail His-
toricusrex@yahoo.com or vis-
it

So long, and

By Stit Hitson

It's potentially the
biggest mystery in natur-
al science today, and
finding answers means
more than saving our
honey supply.
Across the globe, hon-
eybee colonies are dying
in near-epidemic, num-
bers %with no known
cause. Guesses at what
may lie at the root of the
culling range from new
viruses to radiation from
cell phone towers. Ho%%-
ever, University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences
(UF'IFAS) researchers
say that the die-offs are
most likely a culmination
of man-made effects-and
potentially a potent warn-
ing for our own future.
"This is absolutely
bizarre in the fact that
such a widespread-and
potentially devastating-
event is taking place, and
we have yet to be able to
point out a likely cause,"
said Jamie Ellis, a UF as-
sistant professor of ento-
mology and bee .ecology
Expert. Ellis says the die-
off is most likely the re-
sult of several factors in-
cluding, but not limited
to: genetic weaknesses
inadvertently bred into
bees over time, parasite-
spread pathogens, side
effects of pesticides, and
environmental pollutants.
"'The fact that this is a
cumulative effect shows
that it's not just a prob-
lem with the bees." Ellis
said. "It's an environ-
mental issue as well-the
bees are just the ltip of the
iceberg."
Ellis is finishing an in-
formational document on
bee colony collapse dis-
order for honeybee pro-
fessionals, and is a\ail-
able for media inter-
views. For more informa-
tion on bees as "bioindi-
catots" ofl' human health,
you ma\ also contact
Gabriela Chavarria, sci-
ence director of the Nat-
ural Resource Defense
Council at

Cape May: America's oldest seaside resort


By Dave Zuchowski CNHI News
Service
NEW CASTLE, Pa. On our
trip through New Jersey to Cape
May, a friend and I drove right
into a nor'easter.
The cold, windy and wet storm
off the Atlantic meant an arduous
drive along rain-soaked roads in
the dark. After, our cozy suite in
the Montreal Inn was very wel-
coming. Through the plate glass
doors leading out to the balcony,
we could see the surf pounding
its way on shore, driven by 30
m.p.h. winds.
Famished after our travels, we
headed to the Pilot House
Restaurant, a seafood eatery in
the center of the town's historic
core, where we sat next to a gas
lit fireplace, sipped a Chocolatini
(a mix of Stoli vanilla vodka and
Godiva chocolate liqueur) and
made our menu selections. (I can
still almost taste my wonderful
tuna wasabi on soba noodles with
crispy, deep-fried spinach).
Fortunately, the next day the -
rain let up and the sun warmed
the picturesque beach community


to a comfortable mid-60s, afford-
ing us a perfect opportunity for
taking a walking tour of the his-
toric district offered by the Mid-
Atlantic Center for the Arts.
Founded by a Dutch explorer
named Cornelius Mey in 1620
(the British later anglicized the
spelling to Cape May when they
later took over the colony), the
town of approximately 4,035
year-round residents swells to
more than 100,000 in the summer
months.
Tourists have known about the
oceanfront town since the 1700s,
and, by the 19th century, Cape
May had built a reputation as one
of the nation's finest resorts.
By 1970, though, Cape May
was in such bad shape largely
because the automobile gave vis-
itors an entire gamut of new des-
tinations to choose from de-
velopers had plans to raze many
of the old homes to build tract
housing. Luckily, people of fore-
sight began restoring the old
buildings and, today, Cape May
has the nation's second-largest
collection of Victorian homes,


trailing only San Francisco.
By 1976, the town's entire cen-
tral core was designated a Na-
tional Historic District. Ever
since, tourists have been coming
to enjoy not only the town's ar-
chitectural splendors, but also its
thousands of acres of wetlands
and natural areas, sandy beaches
and fishing for the more than 40
salt water species that inhabit the
ocean and Delaware Bay.
The area is also considered one
of the top 10 birding hot spots in
North America, drawing birders
from all over the world during
migration season.
Following our walking tour, we
poked into the shops along Wash-
ington Street Mall, a pedestrian
street pleasantly devoid of traffic.
As if we hadn't already walked
enough that morning, we then
headed to the Cape May Light-
house.
Built in 1859, the still-operat-
ing structure is 157 feet, 6-inches
tall, and we were determined to-
climb to the top every one of the
199 steps in its cast iron spiral
staircase. The effort was worth it,


0 N


however, because the lofty view
of the town, beaches and ocean is
spectacular.
Almost as exhilarating was our
walk along the trails that lead out
into the marshes surrounding the
lighthouse. The tranquility and
beauty of the landscape with its
reeds, willows and grasses was
truly memorable.
We capped the day with
gourmet dinner in the Ebbitt
Room at the Virginia Hotel, a re-
stored 1879 landmark that's won
awards and kudos for its cuisine
and wine list. While listening to
the soft piano music of Steve
LaManna coming from the fire-
place lounge, we dined on execu-
tive chef Andrew Carthy's grilled
Gulf shrimp with white bean
puree, eggplant caponata and
oregano vinaigrette and bacon
wrapped halibut with artichoke
and squash barigoule, roasted
tomatoes and swiss chard.
It definitely made us forget
about the previous day's
nor'easter.

Treasured Anne Bradstreet manuscript returns to town


By Drake Lucas
CNHI News Service

NORTH ANDOVER
,Mass. A historical
document will make its way
home to North Andover for
the first time in more than 30
years.
The only surviving hand-
written Anne Bradstreet
manuscript will take a trip
out of its climate-controlled,
secure case at the Houghton
Library at Harvard
University and go on display
in the Lehman Art Center at
Brooks School.
"The Bradstreet
manuscript is tiny, but
irreplaceable," said Lehman
Art Center Director Michael
McCahill.
Bradstreet is considered
the first American female
poet to be published. She


came to America in 1630 and
eventually settled in North
Andover, then known as
Andover.
Her brother took her
poems to England, where
they were first published in
1650 as a collection titled
"The Tenth Muse." While
she was known for her
intellectual poetry in her
time, Library Trustee Mary
Ellen Osgood said it is
Bradstreet's poems about
daily life that people can
connect with now.
She wrote about her love
for her husband, a fire that
destroyed her house and her
thoughts on family.
Bradstreet is not as widely
knoivn as some other poets,
but interest in her was
reignited during the feminist
movement.
Bradstreet wrote about the


difficulty of pursuing art in
the Puritan community
where she lived: "I am


obnoxious to each carping
tongue,/ Who says, my
hand a needle better fits."
Stevens Memorial Library
Director Sue Ellen Holmes
described Bradstreet as a
woman who was ahead of
her time, writing and
publishing her work while
raising eight children, taking
care of her home and
supporting her husband, who
was in politics.


"The things she was able
to do are things that women
,weren't doing," she said.


The manuscript is a small,
leather-bound book, slightly
bigger than a paperback,
where Bradstreet wrote
thoughts, ideas and
observations.
Osgood said she is "awe-
struck" the book survived the
centuries, as it was passed
down through the family and
read often.
"This is an artifact from
our own town," she said. "It's


a way to touch the past."
McCahill offered to
display the manuscript in the
gallery after Osgood
mentioned the trustees
wanted to show the
manuscript as part of the
library's 100th anniversary
celebration.
Insurance costs in the
thousands of dollars and the
fragility of the pages had.
kept the library trustees from
bringing out the manuscript,,
which was put in their care
after 1951. The manuscript
was placed in safe-keeping at
the Houghton Library in
1972 and hasn't been on
display since.
Leslie Morris, curator of
modern books arind
manuscripts at the Houghton
Library, said the book is not
in great condition, but its
survival was still


remarkable.
"It is quite old, quite well-
thumbed over the years," she
said.
Because of its condition,
the book cannot be opened
and looked at-often. At the
Lehman Art Center, the
library is hiring a
conservator just to open the
book correctly so it displays
a page.
Morris is working with the
Stevens Library trustees on
plans to bring the manuscript
into the 21st century.! by
making color digital
photographs of the pages to
put online.

ARE MOSQUITOES


DRIVING YOU BATTY?


Submitted by Carolyn S. Saft
Suwannee River Partnership Education-
al Coordinator / Horticulture Agent
Suwannee County UF/IFAS Extension

Agghhhh,.. .The joys of spring and sum-
mer: shorts, sandals, cool rains, balmy
evenings and mosquito bites the size of a
mountain. Experts tell us to wear long-
sleeve shirts and pants, avoid going out after
dusk, or spray ourselves with chemicals..
These suggestions are effective, but not very
practical. We have another suggestion: in-
stall a bat house. These furry fellows enjoy
mosquito buffets and leafhoppers or beetles
for dessert,
An insect-eating bat. can consume .from
500 to 1,000 insects per hour or well over
3,000 a night. A moderate size colony of
300 bats can eat one million insects per
night. Most pf our Florida bats are effective
at controlling insect populations and can
save you money that might have been spent
on insect traps or chemicals, "No way" you
say, "I don't want bats sucking my blood,
giving me rabies or getting tangled in my
hair." Take a deep breath, put your fears
aside, and give these endangered critters a
chance. First, there are no vampire bats that
live in the United States, so your blood is
safe from bats. Second, bat rabies account
for only one human death per year in the
U.S. On the other hand, dogs, "man's best
friend" (I have three best friends), attack and
kill more humans annually than die from bat
rabies in a decade. Keep in mind that bicy-
cles, playground equipment and pools are
linked to more deaths than bats.
Rabies is almost always transmitted by a
bite, though non-bite exposures can result
from contact between infected saliva and
open wounds or the mucous membranes of
the eyes, mouth or nose. Careless handling
is the primary source of rabies exposure in
humans from bats. Tens of thousands of
people have closely observed the emergence
of 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats
(Tadarida brasiliensis) in Austin, Texas each
summer for 16 years without incident. What
can you do to help prevent the rare transmis-
sion of rabies to humans? Vaccinate dogs
and cats, and teach children to leave bats
alone, just as they are taught to leave bees
and unfamiliar dogs alone. Bats rank as
North America's most rapidly declining and
endangered land mammals. The largest
known cause of decline is exaggerated hu-


man fear and maltreatment.
We encourage bats to live in our neighbor-
hoods, but as with any wild animals, precau-
tions to exclude them from our living quar-
ters should be taken. Most bats that enter
homes are lost youngsters looking for a safe
environment. Exclusion of bats can be
achieved by sealing cracks or holes in walls,
keeping tight fitted screens on open win-
dows and avoiding loose fitting doors to the
outside or attic.
O.K., now you're willing to install a bat
house, but have no idea what one looks like.
General guidelines for bat houses include a
minimum height of r no feet. a diameter of
14 inches or more, a landing area extending
below the entrance at least three to six inch-
es and one to four roosting chambers. Roost
partitions should be spaced three-quarters to
one inch apart. All partitions and'the land-
ing area should have a rough surface. Air
vents are necessary in our warm climate.
Wooden houses should not be made out of
pressure treated lumber, but painted or
stained instead. The color of the outside de-
pends on high temperatures in July. Our
best bet is to use light colors or white for the
outside due to our high. summer tempera-
tures, However, the inside should be coated
with two applications Of black stain, not
paint (paint fills in the rough or grooved sur-
faces).
Site selection should be a place where
there is a minimum of six hours of direct
sunlight. Most nursery colonies choose
roosts within one-quarter mile of water.
Mounting of houses should be on poles or
buildings; this offers the best protection
from predators. The house should be 15 to
20 feed above the ground and away from
any bright lights. Even though you have in-
stalled the perfect bat house, it may take a
while for the bats to inhabit their new abode.
Patience is a virtue when working with
wildlife.
The University of Florida has one of the
largest occupied bat houses in North Ameri-
ca. Located next to Lake Alice, this house
hosts about 20,000 bats that consume 10 to
20 million insects each night. If you are vis-
iting Gainesville, plan a trip at dusk to see
the bats disperse; it is a very interesting
sight to see.
To receive a publication on how to build a
bat house, call the Suwannee County Exten-
sion office at 386-362-2771 or visit batcon-
servation.org or www.batcon.org.

SPRING CANNING


"The gardens are being tended
and the results are being harvest-
ed. We can tell by the questions
asked of the Family and Con-
sumer Sciences Department at
the Suwannee County Extension
Service" says Merry Taylor,
County Extension Director.
One of the most frequently
asked questions is how to can
green beans. "And the first part
of the answer is they cannot be
processed in a water bath can-
ner," states Taylor. All non-acid
foods, including green beans,
must be canned in a pressure can-
ner (either dial or weighted
gauge). Following are the recom-
mended USDA (United States
Department of Agriculture)


guidelines for canning green
beans.
An average of 14 pounds is
needed per canner load of 7
quarts. An average of 9 pounds is
needed per canner load of 9 pints.
Select tender, crisp pods. Re-
move and discard diseased and
rusty pods. Wash beans and trim
ends; break or cut into 1 to 2-
inch pieces.
Raw pack Pack beans into
clean hot jars. Gently tamp beans
into jars without pressing them
down. Leave 1-inch head space.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to pints; 1
teaspoon to quarts, if desired. Fill
jar to within 1-inch of top with
boiling water. Remove air bub-
bles. Wipe jar rims. Adjust lids.


Process in a pressure canner at 10
pounds pressure.

Pints 20 minutes

Quarts 25 minutes

MORE
Hot pack Cover beans with
boiling water; boil 5 minutes.
Pack hot beans into hot jars,
leaving 1/2-inch head space. Add
1/2 teaspoon salt to pints; 1 tea-
spoon to quarts, if desired. Fill
jar with boiling hot cooking liq-
uid, leaving 1-inch head space.
Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar
rims. Adjust lids. Process in a
pressure canner at 10 pounds
pressure.


Pints 20 minutes

Quarts 25 minutes

TIPS FROM UF/IFAS EXTENSION: BEAT THE HEAT WITH LANDSCAPING


By Carolyn S. Saft
Suwannee River Partnership Educational
Coordinator/Horticulture Agent
Suwannee County UF/IFAS Extension

The summer heat is beginning to arrive and our electric
bills are starting to escalate. April to November sunlight in-
tensities elevate air temperatures far above the human com-
fort level. In Florida, about 35 percent of our annual residen-
tial energy expense is for cooling homes during Florida's
five-to-seven-month long summer. Our unique climate pro-
vides many opportunities for using landscape materials to
moderate the home environment arid actually reduce monthly
utility bills by as much as 30 percent.
We all know that we can't change the weather, but we can
create landscapes to cast shade, channel winds and reduce
temperatures near our homes. Plants provide shade, insulate
the home from heat loss or heat gain and cool the air that sur-
rounds their leaves. We can begin by making a list of specific
problem areas we would like to correct. Does our house have
particular windows that need to be shaded? Glass w window s
and doors can account for between 30 and 60 percent of a
building's total heat gain by providing the most direct entry
for heat into our homes during the summer. Consequently,
special attention may need to be given to walls containing the
most windows and glass doors and especially those with west
or east exposures. Is humidity a problem around one side of
your home? Would you enjoy your backyard more if there
was more shade or wind movement? An area that is shaded
can create a dramatic effect by dropping ground temperatures
by 3-6 degrees in only five minutes. Let's take a look at some
planning ideas.
Shading with Trees
House walls are the most practical to shade because new
tree plantings take many years to cast an effective shadow on
the roof. Heat ttansmianed through the ioof is best reduced b\
using attic insulation and vennulahon This is because tree
limbs over the roof can present a nuisance from plant debris


clogging rain gutters, staining roof tiles, or even wearing of
roof surfaces from rubbing branches. In addition, there is a
risk of injury or damage if heavy limbs fall off in a storm. A
tree planted 15 feet from the west wall can shade an area four
times longer than a tree planted 25 feet from the wall. The
shape of the tree also influences the duration of the shade.
Spreading, round and vase-shaped tree canopies provide
shade longer than columnar, oval or pyramidal canopies.
Trees like Red Maple, Red Bucke\ e, Fringe Tree, Flowering
Dogwood, Loblolly Bay, Dahoon Holly, Crab Apple, Chap-
man Oak, Shumard Oak, Sweetleaf and Carolina Basswood.
Mature tree height should also be considered when select-
ing plants. Generally, small or medium sized trees (26 to 30
feet tall) are preferred for shading walls. If taller trees are se-
lected, they should be planted further away from the house so
they don't become a safety hazard. Be wary of fast growing
trees that increase in height by three feet or more per year.
Most fast growing trees are short-lived and weak-wooded,
two undesirable characteristics.
Channeling \Vinds
Managing breezes with landscaping is a very effective.
means of controlling indoor home temperatures. A common
mistake we make is channeling summer breezes toward our
homes. This technique was used years ago before the use of
central air conditioning. Today, inost people can't even imag-
ine life without central air conditioning. Steady wind move-
ment around the home during the cooling, season may actual-
ly increase your energy costs by allowing warm humid air
into your home. This humid air can enter'your home through
any structural cracks or gaps. Shrubs and trees should be po-
sitioned around the air-conditioned home to steer the summer
southern breezes away from the home. This practice is the
opposite of what early settlers and pioneers used to do when
they had no air conditioning.'
Reducing Temperatures
Heatrippling off of sunbaked paved surfaces is a familiar.
site in Florida during the summer. Asphalt and concrete sur-
faces absorb the sun's heat increasing surface temperature by


'.






15 to 25 degrees and radiate it back into the immediate envi-
ronment. Groundcover planted -around paved surfaces can
help reduce these temperatures. Turfgrass is undoubtedly the
most.commonly. used groundcover No other plant material
can %ith"tand as much foot traffic as rurfgrass. Ho"'eer. rur-
fgrass doesn't grow well in dense shade and im difficult to eis-


turf. In fact, evidence has s-hon that taller ground.coers


Holly Fern, Blue Daze,Society Garlic, iriope, Partridgeber-
ry and Junipers can provide a more beautiful profusion of
color, texture and contrast than turfgrass.
Creative landscape planning with trees, shrubs, vines and
groundcover can help alter the climate outside your home
and modify the temperatures on the inside.. This ariet .of
plant types also provides areas for wildlife, especialin birds

great outdoors during the summer while sirting under the
canopy of yourefavorite tree and watching the i eidlife novrki
the day away.


EAT FROM THE RAINBOW


From Your Suwannee Extension Service

The National Cancer Institute currently recommends eat-
ing 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
Summer's bounty of fruits and vegetables can make eating
these foods more interesting. Colorful fruits and vegetables
reduce the risk of caficer. The colors themselves act as an-
tioxidants or anti-inflammatory agents.
The deeper the color, the more powerful the action. Here
are just a few of the colorful foods that help fight cancer and
heart disease.

Blue-Purple:
Red cabbage
Eggplant
Purple grapes
raisins
Dried plums
Plums, fresh in season
Blueberries, frozen

Suwannee River Partnership helps farmers


save money and protect our natural resources


Submitted by Carolyn S. Saft, Suwannee
River Partnership, educational
coordinator/horticulture agent
The cost of farming continues to rise as
fertilizer prices increase and transportation
costs soar. Through these difficult times,
there is good news and help for farmers
through the Suwannee River Partnership
(SRP). This group of government agencies,
educators, commodity organizations and
businesses are helping farmers lower their
costs by following Best Management Prac-
tices (BMPs). Even though the mission of
the SRP is to assess sources of nutrient
loading and optimize reductions in loading
to water of the Suwannee River basin em-
phasizing voluntary, incentive based pro-
grams for protecting public health and the
environment. The group is also helping,
farmers reduce .fertilizer and irrigation costs.
For example, a local corn grower reduced
nitrogen fertilizer inputs by 2,100 pounds
on a seventy acre field using BMP tools.


This was a fertilizer cost saving of over
three hundred dollars. On another farm, a
watermelon grower achieved record crop
yields using BMP irrigation and nutrient
management tools. This farmer reduced his
fertilizer use by 3,500 pounds and saved
over five hundred fifty dollars just in fertil-
izer costs. Both farmers using BMPs also
saved time and labor expenses.
To date, 50 of 55 (90 percent) area dairies
have conservation plans. Dairy farmers are
reducing nitrogen to groundwater by 25-55
percent.** Some of the BMPs being imple-7.
mented are replacing dirt lots with waste
collection facilities, adding liners or con-
crete to waste storage lagoons and separat-
ing solids from liquids. In addition, farmers
have free access to UF/IFAS, which oper-
ates a livestock waste analysis lab where
cow manure and chicken litter is analyzed
and application rate recommendations are
given. Soil test kits and tools are also avail-
able from the UF/IFAS County Extension


offices.
Along with dairies, poultry farmers are
also reducing nitrogen loads by following
BMPs. There is a nitrogen reduction of-
14,936,000 pounds resulting in up to an 80
percent reduction of nitrogen leaching.**,
Poultry farmers are covering litter stacks
and placing the litter on concrete pads to re-
duce nitrogen leaching. In addition, dead
birds are composted and recycled for animal
feed.
Row crop farmers are reducing nitrogen
application on 70,000 acres of farmland re-
sulting in a 35-50 percent decrease in nitro-
gen leaching.** Farmers are using GPS
equipment to pinpoint fertilizer applications
and to help reduce overlap during the
spreading process. This in turn allows the
fertilizer to be placed for better plant uptake
and reduces the amount of fertilizer. Farm-
ers are using plant sap meters to measure
nutrient content so they can adjust their fer-
tilizer applications and rates. Growers are,


also using soil moisture probes for better ir-
rigation scheduling. One less irrigation
event can save up tol.5 million gallons of
water per crop.** Growers have also up-
graded and retrofitted their irrigation sys-
tems to save a billion gallons of water in
2006.
Our Suwannee River Basin farmers are
making changes to reduce their farming
costs while at the same time helping protect
our precious water resources. Area farmers
provide food for us, provide habitat for
wildlife and preserve our rural heritage. The
Suwannee River Partnership is proud of our
famier's progress and look forward to con-
tinued success of protecting our natural re-
sources and helping the farmer's bottom-
line..

UF/IFAS researchers design folate-packed tomato


Stu Hutson
UF/IFAS
Leafy greens and beans now aren't the only
foods that pack a punch of folate, the vitamin
essential for a healthy start to pregnancy.
Researchers at the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
have developed a tomato with a full day's
worth of the nutrient in a single serving.
"This is a technology that could potentially
be beneficial worldwide," said Andrew Han-
son, the plant biochemist who developed the
tomato along with fellow folate expert Jesse
Gregory and doctoral degree student Rocio
Diaz de la Garza with funding from the Na-
tional Science Foundation.
"Now that we've shown it works in toma-
toes, we can work on applying it to cereals
and crops for less developed countries where
folate deficiencies are a very serious prob-
lem," said Hanson.
Folate is one of the most vital nutrients for
the human body's growth and development,
which is why folate-rich diets are typically
suggested for women who are planning a
pregnancy or pregnant.
Without it, cell division would not be possi-
ble because the nutrient plays an essential role
in both the production of nucleotides the
building blocks of DNA and many other es-
sential metabolic processes.
Deficiencies of the nutrient have been


linked to birth defects, slow growth rates and
other developmental problems in children, as
well as health issues in adults, such as anemia.
The vitamin is commonly found in leafy
green vegetables like spinach, but few people
eat enough of this type of produce to get the
suggested amount. So, in 1998, the Food and
Drug Administration mandated that many
grain products such as rice, flour and corn-
meal be enriched with a synthetic form of fo-
late known as folic acid.
However, folate deficiencies remain a prob-
lem in many underdeveloped countries where
adding folic acid is impractical or simply too
expensive.
"There are even folate deficiency issues in
Europe, where addition of folic acid to foods
has not been very widely practiced," Gregory
said. "Theoretically, you could bypass this
whole problem by ensuring that the folate is
already present in the food."
So, will doctors be recommending a serving
of tomato one half of a cup for would-be
pregnant women anytime soon? Probably not,
the researchers say.
"It can take years to get an engineered food
plant approved by the FDA," Hanson said.
"But before that is even a question, there are
many more studies to be done, including a
better look at how the overall product is af-
fected by this alteration."
And there is another hurdle the researchers

must clear. As the published paper notes,
boosting the production of folate in the toma-
toes involved increasing the level of naturally
occurring molecules in the plant, known as
pteridines. Little is known about these sub-
stances, which are found in all fruits and veg-
etables.,


Some vegetables contain many times more
pteridines than the biofortified tomatoes. For
example, the velvet bean used in traditional
Ayurvedic Indian medicine for centuries and
found in some body-building supplements -
contains 25 times the amount.,

These aggravations
have had ergononmics ex-

that are designed to eliminate the hassle of water-
ing, while making gardening what you want it to be
-- easier and enjoyable. Products like the No-Crank
Hose Reel, which will rewind your water hose with
the flip of a lever, accomplish that. Instead of using
muscle-power to wind up the hose, No-Crank uses
water pressure to power a three-piston engine that
automates the hose retraction, eliminating the stress
and frustration associated with manual hose
rewinding.
Don't confuse the new automated hose reels with
the you-crank reels of the past. With these, there is
absolutely no cranking involved, and no trying to
ensure that the hose rolls up evenly by manually-
pushing each row in place on the reel. Depending
on your needs, there are several No-Crank models
available with different features, including a swivel
base that lets you easily pull the hose in any direc-

Water smart to save money
NMlost homeowners over-water their yards, unwit-

hose. Adopting water-savvy habits not only helps
reduce thus waste, it saves money while promoting
a healtlher lawn and landscape. According to the Ir-
riganon Association, you should follow these tips to
ensure that you're lawn is getting the most out of
our % aternng schedule.
Water it right
\\atermng at the right time of day, when the sun is
lo\\, the \inds are calm and temperatures are cool,
will sa\e a lot of water -- as much as 30 percent --
by reducing evaporative losses. The best time to
water is late afternoon, evening and just before sun-
rise.
--Saturate the root zones. Roots are generally
within the top 6 inches of soil. Water roots, then let
the soil dry. Watering too frequently results in shal-
'low roots, weed growth, disease and fungus.
--Don't water too long. Water each zone several
times for short periods rather than in one long ses-
sion. This reduces run-off.
--Take careful aim. Be sure sprinklers are not wa-
tering driveways, sidewalks, patios or buildings.
That's all water down the drain.
Plan right and plant right,to save water
Conserving water doesn't have to involve a lot of
trenching and plumbing. These tips can be imple-
mented as part of your normal landscaping and gar-
dening routine.
--Aerate your lawn and around trees at least once
a year to ensure good water penetration. Turn and

--Mulch well around and backaches
plants, bushes and
trees. Using 2 to 4 inches of mulch reduces evapo-
ration, moderates soil temperatures, improves wa-
ter penetration and helps to control weeds that com-
pete for water.
--Landscape to suit your lot. Evaluate your yard
conditions (sun, shade, dry and. damp areas) and
purchase turf or plant species that have low water
requirements and are well suited to the area of the
yard where they will.be planted.
-Hydro-zone your yard. Group landscape plants
with similar moisture needs in the same area. Sep-
arate them from turf areas, which have different
water requirements.
-Plant in spring or fall when less water is need-
ed to establish new plants. Smaller plants require
-less water to become established.
--Create functional turf areas, for example, in
play areas. Avoid using turf where it's difficult to ir-
rigate properly, such as on steep slopes. Good alter-
natives for hard-to-irrigate areas include ground
covers, perimeter plants and mulch.
--Plant shade trees to lower the air and soil tem-
peratures. This will reduce soil moisture loss.
--Maintain your yard by mowing, weeding, prun-
ing and irrigating as needed. A well-maintained
yard requires less water.
Upgrade your watering tools
The key to sticking with any irrigation program
is to make it as efficient as possible. This means not
only using the amount of water you need, but also
streamlining the whole irrigation process. If. you
love caring for your lawn and garden but hate the
hassle of prepping watering equipment and
wrestling with the hose, consider using an automat-
ed hose reel, such as the No-Crank ,hose reel
(www.no-crank.com) that rewinds the hose with
the flip of a lever. It not only keeps you and your
yard cleaner, but can also help keep you on track
with irrigation.
