House fire caused by trash fire


Maxie Kelley was burning trash behind his house on
3704 NW 107th Ave. in Jasper, when the fire spread to
the residence, according to a report from the Jasper
Fire Rescue Department.
When firefighters arrived on the scene about noon
on Monday, May 7, they found heavy smoke and
flames coming from the northeast comer of the house,
the report states. They entered the house through the
front door and found fire in the attic of the structure


and in the backyard.
The house was equipped with smoke detectors,
which alerted the occupants to the fire, according to
the report. Plecia D. Jones also lived in the house. No
one was injured in the fire.
The damage to the house and contents was estimat-
ed at $5,500, the report states.
The Division of Forestry cited Kelly with a warning
for illegal burning of trash, according to the report.


Janell Warfel
was recognized as
the local Teacher of
the Year by Wal-
Mart and Sam's
Club in their na- .
tional Teacher of
the Year program. -. : .,
Warfel is a Special -^ p i
Education teacher
for grades Kinder-
garten through six
at Central Hamil-
ton Elementary
(CHE). She has
taught school in
Hamilton County ........
for 12 years. Janell Warfel, Central Hamilton
Ginger Brown, the local Wal-Mart/Sam's Club T
assistant manager

sented CHE Prin-
cipal Marjorie
Cooks a $1,000
educational grant
for the school..
Warfel said
she was very
surprised to be
selected. She
plans to buy
some books, ed-
ucational games
and cooking


supplies, for her students.
"I'm happy that Mrs. Warfel was chosen," Cooks
said. "She is a very good teacher. She goes out of
her way to help all the students, not just the ones
in her class. They all know they can go to her for
help."
According to Brown, one of the reasons Warfel was
selected as Teacher of the Year, is her willingness to
help others and go beyond what is expected of her.

During Arson Aware-
ness Week, May 6 12,
Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink, who
also serves as State Fire
Marshal, is calling on
Floridians to take pre-
cautions with, their prop-
erty and promising ag-
gressive action against
anyone found responsi-
ble for arson. Floridians
should be aware that the
current extra-dry condi-
tions are serving as fuel
for wildfire across the
state.
"Our landscape is ex-
tremely dry and vulnera-
ble to forest fires," said
CFO Sink. "I am urging
Floridians to take pre-
cautions to protect their
families and homes, take
steps to ensure they are
practicing fire safety and
to immediately report
suspected arson."
Geography, fuel
sources, and weather all
influence the spread of
wildfires, but statistics
show that trimming arid
cleaning vegetation and
properly storing flamma-
ble materials as far as
possible from your home
can profoundly improve
your home's chances of


surviving a wildfire.
Floridians should take
the following precau-
tions if their home is
threatened by wildfire:
Keep a radio on for up-
dates. Remove com-
bustible items from
around your home, in-
cluding lawn and pool-
side furniture, umbrellas,
fabric awnings, tarp cov-
erings, firewood, fuel
tanks and fuel-powered
equipment. Place valu-
ables that will not be
damaged by water in a
pool or pond. Close all
doors and windows in-
side to prevent draft.
Take down flammable
drapes, curtains, and
close, Venetian blinds.
Close gas valves and
turn off all pilot lights.
Turn on a light in each
room for 'isibility in case
of heavy smoke. Leave
Sprinklers on roofs' or
anything that might be
damaged by fire, includ-
. ing fuel tanks. Be ready
to evacuate- family- and
pets when fire nears or
when instructed to do so
by local officials.
- Report suspected ar-
son by calling 1-877-662-
7766 (1-877-NOARSON).


Post Offices conduct

"Stamp Out Hunger"

food drive May 12
The employees of the Jasper, Jennings and White
Springs Post Offices will participate in the annual na-
tional "Stamp Out Hunger" Food Drive on Saturday,
May 12. For letter carriers in Hamilton County, this will
be the fifth year they and their customers have partici-
pated in this annual event.
Each year United Way of America partners with the
National Association of Letter Carriers and brings to-
gether national and local partners to address hunger by
providing food to those most in need. It is the largest
one-day effort to combat hunger in the United States
with millions of families participating and thousands of
letter carriers, postal employees and volunteers collect-
ing the donations. Locally, United Way of Suwannee
Valley coordinates the effort with the local post offices
and agencies that receive the contributed food.
The food received in Hamilton County is distributed
to the Food Bank of Suwannee Valley, which in turn
makes the food available to to assist those in need.
"Although non-perishable food items such as canned
soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice are always
welcome, there is a need for canned food products con-
taining protein," James Simpson, postmaster of the
Jasper Post Office, said. "These would include canned
tuna or salmon as well as canned stews. Please do not
include any glass or perishable items." Most people
make food donations around the holidays and tend to
donate less in the summer time.

pate. Thisis the most ever at
SHE! Parents, if you missed
the screening date, you still
can enroll your child in
VPK. Screenings are very
helpful for your children
but they are not mandatory
for VPK enrollment. We
look forward to all of our
new students next year.
Second, our FTE count at
SHE is higher than it has
been since the 2000-2001
count. Perhaps one of the
reasons for tlfis increase is
the academics and instruc-
tional success of the school.
In 2005-2006, SHE was an
"A" school and while
school grades will be issued
later this year, SHE 'has al-
ready received good news
in their fourth grade writ-
ing and third grade FCAT

"On behalf of the Florida
Department of Education,
Office of Public Affairs, I
would like to applaud
South Hamilton Elemen-

third grade FCAT math

achievement is a great ac-
complishment and .some-
thing of which you can be
proud. Please pass along a
thank you to your teachers
and students for their con-
tinued hard work and de-
termination."
Parents, if you are not
aware or have not had time,
you may view your child's
scores on the Department
of Education website. You
received your user ID and

scores will be released later
in May. We pray those
scores will be just as posi-

requirements have .been,
dramatically raised. 'Re-.

our students and the staff at

Also, it is with deep ap-

Fred Richard McNeal and Mike Williams were sworn in as White Springs council mem-
bers on Thursday, April 26, by Town Clerk Shirley Heath. The two new council members
went into office unopposed. Tracy Woodard and Willie Jefferson did not seek re-election.
The council also held their organizational meeting. Joseph McKire was re-elected May-
or of White Springs and Ralph Hardwick was re-elected as Vice Mayor. (Photo Submitted)

Nancy Argenziano confirmed as

Florida Public Service Commissioner


On Mother's Day, we
celebrate the special
women in our lives -
mothers, sisters, daugh-
ters, and friends and all
that they do for us. But it
is also a time when
women should focus on
their health, for their ben-
efit and for those they
love.
Mother's Day kicks off
National Women's Health
Week (NWHW), an initia-
tive sponsored by the fed-
eral Office on Women's
Health that encourages
women to take simple
steps to improve their
health and longevity.
In recent years, new re-
search has advanced the
study of women's health
tremendously, and
women are living longer,
healthier lives because of


it. NWHW celebrates
these positive steps and
educates women about
what the research is teach-
ing us.
National Women's
Check-Up Day on May 14
highlights the importance
of regularly scheduled
doctor's visits. Most
women know that staying
current with routine and
preventive health screen-
ings is one of the best
ways that they can protect
their bodies now and in
the future.
Routine screenings,
such as Pap tests, clinical
breast exams and mam-
mograms, diabetes and
colon cancer screenings,
and blood pressure tests,
help doctors find prob-
lems early or prevent
them before they. occur.


Regular face-to-face visits
also strengthen the doc-
tor-patient relationship
and give women the op-
portunity to ask questions
and address health con-
cerns.
If you haven't been to
the doctor in the past year,
try to schedule an ap-
pointment soon. And re-.
mind your friends and rel-
atives to make an appoint-
ment. Taking an active in-
terest in safeguarding
your health and the health
of the other special
women in your life is the
first step in ensuring that
you'll be able to celebrate
Mother's Day for years to
come.

White Springs



^%,g


By Johnny Bullard


I wish to express my most
heartfelt and sincere thanks
on behalf of the entire
White Springs Bullard Fam-
ily for the concern, care,
and the many prayers
when we experienced a ter-
rible forest fire in the block
of woods on some of our
family property. We do ap-
preciate the Volunteer Fire
Departments from White
Springs, Jasper, and Genoa
and the alacrity with which
they responded. Each one
of the. members is to be
commended. God bless
you.
To the many friends who
responded with concern,
thank you. I appreciate the
response from the Florida
Highway Patrol, the Florida
Forestry Department and
other local and state law en-
forcement agencies.
Remember Smoky Bear
and heed his warning to
prevent forest fires.
I do hope if I receive a
graduation invitation from
any of my "former students
that it is sent from those
with whom I have main-
tained a friendly and con-
genial relationship through
the years. If someone is
kind enough to respond to
your invitation with a gift,
please write the individual
an appropriate expression
of appreciation and do
write with cursive writing,
complete sentences, and do
check your spelling, gram-
mar and punctuation. You
are now a high school grad-
uate.


I want to wish all the Se-
nior Class of 2007 all the
best for the future. Hamil-
ton County High School
will hold its Commence-
ment of Friday, May 25, 8
p.m., at the Veterans Stadi-
um, Hamilton County High
School, U.S. 129, Jasper.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to my first cousin,
Leann Brewer Klinger,
Lake City, who celebrated
the 13th anniversary of her
39th birthday on Monday,
May 7. Elizabeth Braswell
Taylor, Jasper, celebrated
her birthday on Tuesday,
May 8. Elizabeth has
reached the half-century
mark on her birthday, and I
will reach mine, if the Lord
wills, next year.
Gail Lindsey Matthews,
Lake City, will celebrate her
birthday on Friday, May 11.
She is an active member of
the White Springs Presby-
terian Church, and sup-
ports many organizations.
Gail's parents were the late
Frank and Betty Jo Lindsey,
lifetime White Springs resi-
dents.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of Leoma
Young, White Springs, and
to the family of Nancy
Dove Janousek, Live Oak.
The families have the
prayers of our community.
There were a number of
bicyclists in White Springs
over the weekend, and they
seemed to be enjoying
themselves immensely. We
appreciate our bicycling
friends, and we hope they


will continue to enjoy rid-
ing the beautiful country-
side in and around White
Springs.
Two of our good friends,
Lee and Meredith Lewis,
Fernandina Beach, joined
our family for Sunday
morning worship service at
. First Baptist Church, White
Springs. Following church,
we enjoyed lunch at the
Telford Hotel and shared a
visit with many friends in-
cluding Bertie Hester,
David and Laverna Shaw,
and Cathy Erixton, Connie
Little and Rev. Donald and
Frances Freeman. I compli-
mented Frances on her
beautiful books filled with
vintage photos of the Flori-
da Folk Festival entitled
Festival Vapors. You may
buy this keepsake book at
-the Stephen Foster Craft
Shop at less than $10.
I wish each of my readers
who is mother a Happy
Mother's Day. If your
mother or grandmother is
living contact them and
wish them a Happy Moth-
er's Day. If your mother has

Cattle ranching comes


to life at Folk Festival


By Elaine McGrath,
Events Coordinator

Cattle ranching is the
theme for the Florida Folk
Festival's 2007 Folklife
Area. Cattle ranching in
the present-day United
States began in Florida in
the 16th century. Today,


more than a million cattle
graze on five million
acres of Florida land and
the state ranks 12th na-
tionally in beef produc-
tion.
Learn about branding
and earmarking, or how
to make whips, spur and
saddles. See roping, and


saddle bronco riding
demonstrated. Learn how
to handle a rope and enter
a roping contest just for
fun.
Finely crafted ranch
gates and signs and a se-
lection of striking paint-
ings and drawings will be
on display. Savor swamp
cabbage and other unique
Florida foods. See Cracker
cows and horses animals
descended from the 16th
century Spanish stock -
and feisty cow dogs.
Two cowboy poets will
delight you with their
homespun and, often hi-
larious, verse drawn from
experience working on
the swampy range. Blue-
grass, country and west-
ern, and Mexican Ameri-
can .nortefio bands will
have your toes tapping.
And don't miss the night-
ly dance parties featuring
the classic country and
western swing sounds of
Country Gold, pulsing
nortefio accordion music
by Mestengo, and the in-
fectious Haitian Voodoo
pop beat of Papaloko and
Loray Mistik, back by
popular demand..
Advance tickets for the
Florida Folk Festival are
available for .$20 per day
or $40 for the weekend for
adults. Children under six
years of age are admitted
free of charge. Ticket
prices for children be-
tween. the ages of six and

The North Hamilton El-

"Canned Food Drive" for
the Ronald McDonald
House in Tallahassee dur-
ing the week of March 12,
as a follow-up to the Farm
Bureau's Food Check Out
Day held in February. Ten
local County Farm Bu-
reau's donated nearly
$1,000 worth of food to
the Ronald McDonald
House for Food Check
Out Day on Feb. 7.
The food drive was
sponsored by the North
Hamilton Junior Beta

the school was encour-

their donation. Over .700
cans of food were deliv-
ered to the Ronald Mc-
Donald House in Talla-
hassee. This amounts to
nearly a half of a ton of
food!
According to Pam Hen-
drick, spokesperson at
NHE, each homeroom
planned to bring one can
per student.
"We had such amazing
participation that every
homeroom made their
goal, and also received a
special treat," Hendrick
said. During the Miss
NHE. Pageant, everyone
who brought in a canned
food was entered into a


drawing for special door
prizes.
The school would like to
thank Stichih' Sisters,
D&S Signs, SunSations,
The Lemon Tree and
North Hamilton Elemen-
tary for being sponsors for
this food drive.
The school decided to
hold a food drive after
some teachers learned
about Farm Bureau's food
drive. When the food was
collected, they called
Farm Bureau field man,
Dan Buchanan, for his as-
sistance in delivering the
groceries. The food was
delivered during the first
week of April.

Charity alive and well at Elvis gathering


By SERENA SERAFIN
CNHI News Service

PITTSBURGH, Pa. The
King may be dead, but his gen-
erous spirit lives on.
Members of the We Remem-
ber Elvis Fan Club can attest to
that.
Last weekend, the closely
knit group of devoted fans
gathered at the We Remember
Elvis 26th Annual Spring Festi-
val at the Holiday Inn in Green-
tree.
Not only did they have a ball,.
they raised $3,000 for the Elvis
Aaron Presley Visiting Fellow-
ship at the Western Pennsylva-
nia Hospital's bum/trauma unit
in Pittsburgh.
Priscilla A. Parker, the club's
president, said not many people
were in attendance on Friday '
but Saturday was more fruitful.
That's where I came in. I
dreaded waking up in the drea-
ry weather to drive an hour, but
my love for Elvis and my com-


mitment pushed me on. With
Eric as my co-pilot, we were
off.
I was definitely not prepared
for the welcome I received.
When we arrived, Sandi Pi-
chon, friend of Elvis and author
of."Raised on Elvis! Elvis!
Elvis!" was speaking.
The Louisiana resident re-
called her times in the presence
of the King, but didn't represent
herself as anything more than a
fan accepted in his inner circle.
'We're a family'
As she was speaking, I met
the traveling "Elvis On The Air
Disc Jockey," Stephen Christo-
pher, who has a plethora of
vinyl. He DJ'd the dance that
night, but I wasn't around for
the dinner or performance by
Randy Galioto, an acclaimed
Elvis tribute artist from Bloom-
field.
While Randy and I were
talking, Mary Rosati, a self-pro-
claimed Elvis three-star general
and 24-year member of the We


Remember Elvis Fan Club, in-
troduced herself. She was viva-
cious and welcoming; I was
starting to feel at home.
We walked into the lecture,
room and joined the crowd
again. The perimeter was filled
with tables of Elvis merchan-
dise and memorabilia. I was in
heaven.
As my senses.met a 1950s
inspired backdrop, I spotted a
white-haired Elvis impersonator
- or so I thought. It was Ed
"Gratton, club member and a
real chatiac-tiei He was nice
enough to pose with Eric and
me for some photos. As I ad-
mired his red jumpsuit, Mary
told me she had made it. She
has a gift for creating!
Apparently she made him a
black suit as well. I encouraged
Ed to model it for me. And be-
ing the sweet guy he is, he
agreed.
In the meantime, I met Ed's
long-time pal, Jim.Lupori. He's
from Hopewell, Va., but tray-

eled to the area for the festival
to visit with Ed and his wife,
Marge, also a club member.
Ed's sister, Edna Kuklis, an-
other member, wore a poodle
skirt made by Mary. She said
she has been hooked ever since
she saw Elvis on Ed Sullivan
and the club is an outlet for her
admiration.
"The Elvis collection bug hit
me when I met Ruth," he said.
Later I had the opportunity to


speak with Sandi. She had met
Priscilla at another convention
and was invited to speak at the
local event.
A southern gal, Sandi said
she has never been up North
before, and she was shocked by
how beautiful Pittsburgh is. Her
new book will be in stores in
six to eight weeks. "'Everyone
has an Elvis story," she said.
She was right. By the time,
the event was over, I had gotten


a glimpse into many stories. I
stood by listening in amaze-
ment to tales and victories of-
fered humbly.
In the end, Priscilla said,
more than 100 people attended
over the weekend, a smaller
group than last year, but still a
success.
"I was happy everyone had a
good time."

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 how hard 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, nor
should mascara or other cosmetic items.


Children who repeatedly battle bouts of conjunctivitis might-be due for an eye examination.
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.

Zoning Laws Can Dictate Improvements


When many people first
move into a new home,
visions of transforming
their new place into their
own personal castle begin
to form., But as exciting as
such transformations can
be, before you go mapping
out plans for a moat and
drawbridge, you'll want to
consider your town's
zoning laws, which can
greatly limit what you're
legally allowed to do with


your property.
Zoning laws are
designed to regulate what
a person can and can't do
with their property when it
comes to building. These
govern building issues
with respect to height, use,
bulk and density. Zoning
regulations can change
quite often, depending on
how much your
community is changing
and developing. Generally,


these laws won't prohibit
you from making
renovations that are
consistent with your
existing house. For
instance, if you live in a
residential neighborhood
and were hoping to add a
bedroom onto your house,
the zoning restrictions
with regards to use
shouldn't be a concern.
However, if you intend to
add a room onto your


house such as a shed or a
detached garage, there
could very well be existing
laws that prohibit such
add-ons.
Typically, the zoning
laws you'll want to pay
most attention to are those
addressing height and
bulk. If you're hoping to
raise the roof of your
home and add upwards,
this might be illegal, as it
could negatively affect the


property value of your
neighbors by making their
homes seem less valuable.
Should such laws exist but
you still harbor the desire,
to build up, you can apply
for a variance, which can
be a costly endeavor that
may or may not work out
in the long run. A variance
is essentially an exception
to the zoning regulations,
one that will allow you to
renovate as you choose

are typically conditions the
seller informs prospective
buyers of immediately.
While you might have
purchased your home with
visions of creating a
contemporary castle, it's
good to keep in mind just
how grandiose you can
make your new dig likely
relies less on your wallet
and more on your town's
zoning laws.

regardless of existing laws.
Getting your local zoning
board to grant you a
variance, however, is no
small task. If you're really
set on making a home
improvement that doesn't
comply with zoning
regulations, you'll likely
have to hire a lawyer and
possibly even an architect
or engineer to prove you
need the variance. But
even a lawyer and the
testimony of professionals
do not guarantee your
zoning board will grant
you a variance.
It's also. important to
note that you'll need a
variance should you decide
to change the use of your
home. For instance, if your
home is defined as solely
residential but you choose
to turn part of your home
into a doctor's office or
even a law office, you
won't be allowed to do so
without first being granted
a variance from the local
zoning board.
Before building onto
your property, it's also
beneficial to know the
setback distance, or the
mandated distance between
the building area and the
property line. Such
distances are established
for a number of reasons,
not the least of which is to
provide you and your
neighbors with privacy so
* all parties don't feel as
though they're sitting in
each other's laps when in
the privacy of their own
homes. Such regulations
also exist to address
accessibility and
ventilation concerns. The
setback distance should be
included on your
property's survey plat,
which you should have
received when you
purchased your home. It is
essential you know the
setback distance before
doing add-ons of any sort,
as violations of the.
distance can result in you
being forced-to remove
them entirely, a costly
mistake that can leave you
on the hook for several
thousands of dollars.
Another thing to
consider is whether or not
you have any easements or
deed restrictions on your
property, which can negate
your right to build any
add-ons. Again, if there are
any of these on your
property, they should be
listed on your survey plat.
An easement is essentially
a restriction on your
property that exists to
provide easy access to
utilities or other services.
Typically, an easement is
placed on a property by the
government, meaning they
are the lone people allowed
to build on a designated
area. This doesn't
necessarily mean they will
build on that designated
area, but they and only
they have the right to.
A deed restriction
essentially limits what you
can do with the property.
Typically, a deed
restriction is a condition of
sale set forth by the
previous homeowner in
order to protect certain
areas of the property such
as wetlands or wooded
areas. Your municipality
can also put a deed
restriction on your
property to prohibit further
development. Neither of
these should come as a
surprise, though, as they

Dear Classified Guys,
To this day I don't understand men
when it comes to tools. Take my
grandfather, for instance. He had a
tool for every job. When the battery
died in my watch, he had a jeweler's
. screwdriver to replace it. When I
needed to fix my front stoop, he had
a cement mixer in his shed. And
when I had to rotate my tires, he had
an impact wrench just like the tire
shops. So when he passed away, I
was left with a garage and house full
of tools. I kept a few and put the
rest, like a house jack, up for sale at
my yard sale. You can imagine my
surprised when two guys started
fighting over the house jack. How
many people really need to lift their
home? The same thing happened
over some rusty screwdrivers. In all
honesty, I thought most of it
was junk. You can buy
much nicer looking
tools at any store. Why ^--7-'
would anyone want an
old hammer set or a rusty ,
radial arm saw?

Carry: If you're trying to understand
men's obsession with tools, good luck.
Even my wife has given up.
Cash: although the marketing


Duane "Cash" Holze y
& Todd "Carry" Holze


05/06/07
@2007 The Classified Guys&


departments of the big home improve-
ment centers have sure figured it out!
Carry: While it may seem odd to
you that two guys would argue over a
tool like a'house jack, it's actually not
that surprising. You can imagine that if
you needed to move a house from its
foundation, a house jack would prove
to be very valuable.
Cash: Old tools, even rusty ones,
often preform that same valuable serv-
ice. While you can buy most tools new
at a retail store, new and shiny isn't nec-
essarily better. In fact, some old tools
are much more durable. They were
made from solid metal parts that just


won't break. Many of today's tools are
made from less expensive materials
like plastic.
Carry: Much like your grandfather,
many people have an appreciation for
these old tools. That's what makes
them one of the hottest selling items at
any garage sale. Even that old hammer
set or rusty radial arm saw can be quite
valuable to some.
Cash: Although you may not fully
understand men and their tools, there is
one thing you can take from your expe-
riences. The next time you see two
men fighting over a set of tools at your
garage sale, raise the price!


Tool Up
Open almost any toolbox and you're
likely to see name brands such as
Stanley, De Walt, Makita, or Craftsman,
to name a few. That's because these
companies have been around for many
decades. Frederick Stanley created
Stanley tools in 1843 as a bolt-and door
hardware company. Raymond De Walt
started his tool company in 1922, per-
fecting the radial arm machine to pro-
vide more versatility for woodworkers.
Makita was founded in 1915 as an elec-
tric motor sales company, arid Sears
launched its Craftsman brand in 1927.,
Tool Time
Many people wish they could be
great craftsmen. That's probably why
home improvement shows like This Old
House have made celebrities out of
everyday repairmen. The show began
in 1979, making host Bob Vila a house-
hold name. In 1989, Vila left the show
because of arising conflicts with com-
mercial endorsements. He started his
own show, Bob Vila's Home Again,
renaming it Bob Villa in 2005. His
notoriety also landed him guest appear-
ances on fictional handyman shows like
Tool Time with Tim Allen.

Answered Prayers
My church holds a fundraising yard
sale every year. As the minister, I find
it's a great way to meet with a part of
the congregation that I don't often see
on Sunday.
One of the parishioners, Mary,
brought her husband to the sale in
hopes he would find something to buy..j
While he was browsing the tables, I
took the opportunity to say hello.
As we made small talk, I mentioned
thatI haven't seen him in church for
several weeks. "I've been out playing
golf," he told me rather honestly.
As he saw my disappointment, he
found a way to justify his choice.
"But don't worry," he said. "My,
game is so bad, I pray every time I hit
the ball."

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with



lethal toxin, UF research shows


University of Florida re-
searchers have revealed
how the inhaled form of
anthrax paralyzes the
body's defenses and pre-
vents immune cells from
reaching the site of infec-
tion.
Anthrax killed five peo-
ple in 2001 when letters
containing the bacteria's
spores were sent through
the mail. The UF findings,
published last week in the
EMBO Journal, may lead
to quicker diagnoses for
anthrax victims.
The disease causes flu-
like symptoms that can
take weeks to develop, ac-
cording to the Centers for
Disease Control and Pre-
vention. But once the first
symptom appears, the dis-
ease progresses rapidly
and patients often die from
shock before they realize
they have more than a
common cold. The current
method of detecting an-
thrax relies on lab cultures
that can take days. to com-
plete.
"We're looking for ap-
proaches to detect anthrax
earlier in the blood," said
Russell During, Ph.D., a
postdoctoral fellow at
UF's College of Medicine.
"We're trying to develop a'
test that would allow de-
tection within two or three
hours of the bugs entering
the blood and secreting
toxins."
Once inhaled, anthrax
releases a lethal toxin that
immobilizes the white
blood cells that normally
seek and destroy invading
bacteria. Just traces of the


toxin can slow movement
of these cells, called neu-
trophils, by 50 percent, UF
researchers discovered.
"Neutrophils have to get
to the infection to kill any-
thing. If you paralyze
them so they don't move,
they can't protect you,"
said Fred Southwick,
M.D., division chief of in-
fectious diseases at the UF
College of Medicine and
the study's lead author.
But exactly how the an-
thrax toxin wards off neu-
trophils has puzzled scien-
tists for years. Immune
cells rely on rod-shaped
filaments called actin to
propel them toward an in-
fection. In a previous
study, Southwick found
that the toxin prevents
actin assembly, leaving
neutrophils stuck in the
mud.
"Actin is important be-
cause it's the motor that
causes neutrophils to
move," said Southwick.
"So it's like cutting the
gas to the motor."
Anthrax literally cuts the
gas line. The toxin works
like a pair of scissors,
snipping off the ends of a
key protein and preventing
the transmission of mes-
sages within the cell. As a
result, immune cells never
receive the green light to
assemble the actin motor,
Southwick's findings
demonstrate.
"Together, these studies
provide important clues
about how anthrax escapes
the immune system during
infection," said Nick
Duesbery, Ph.D. deputy di-

a. ;4934F,


rector for research opera-
tions and senior scientific
investigator at the Van An-
del Institute in Grand
Rapids, Mich.
In 1998, Duesbery dis-
covered that the toxin in-
terrupts the transmission
of signals within cells. But
Dr. Southwick's study is
the first to explain how
anthrax can short-circuit a
cell signal to block neu-
trophil movement, a real-
ization that has eluded sci-
entists for years. The find-
ing almost escaped South-
wick's research team as
well, which was looking
for proteins that interacted
directly with the toxin.
"I would say it's the sci-
entific equivalent of find-
ing a needle in a
haystack," Southwick said.
The team compared be-
fore and after snapshots of
neutrophils exposed to a
purified form-of the toxin,
as well as images showing
how protein expression
changed in cells. After
scrutinizing the images for
hours, During finally iden-
tified one protein that .
seemed to disappear upon
exposure to anthrax.
The protein turned out to
be responsible for gather-
ing the components of
actin. and shuttling them to
the center of the cell,
where they are assembled
into filaments.
"We've discovered that
through this pathway,
lethal toxin blocks the
function of a protein that
regulates how actin assem-
bles," said Southwick,
who believes his findings
may also explain how an-
thrax paralyzes other types
,of ce.ls, like the platelets, .
that normally help -blood
clot.
"We know that patients
with anthrax bleed,"
Southwick said, adding
that victims of inhalational
anthrax often suffer hem-
orrhages in their lungs and
lymph nodes. "No one un-
derstands why, and, it
could very well be due to
paralysis of platelets."
During and Southwick
are currently looking for
additional proteins target-
ed by anthrax. They hope
to develop a diagnostic
blood test that detects the
bacterium by checking for
telltale changes in protein
expression.
Southwick's team used
an unusual approach to
tease out the anthrax tox-
in's effects on cell migra-
tion: They allowed the im-
mune cells to be hijacked
by another bacterium, Lis-
teria monocytogenes. Lis-
teria is often used as a tool
to study actin because it
commandeers human cells
and induces them to form
the filaments, which the
bacteria use to navigate
around the body.
"We used one bacterium
to weed out another. I'm
not aware of anyone ever
doing that," Southwick
said. "In an individual
cell, you can't figure out
where the actin is assem-
bling and what's control-
ling it. But Listeria seems
to use the same pathways
that a cell uses to crawl.
So anything that blocks
Listeria we predict would
also block neutrophils
from crawling. And that's
what we found."

IOo much Sense at Derby 133


Street Sense wins Kentucky Derby title


BY KEVIN HARRIS
CNHI News Service

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Prior
to the 133rd Kentucky Derby
at Churchill Downs, no
defending Breeders, Cup
Juvenile champion had won
the "Run for the Roses."
Until Saturday.
Betting favorite Street
Sense broke the "Juvenile
Jinx," defeating Hard Spun by
2 1/4 lengths to win the
Derby in a time of 2:02.17.
The dark bay colt took first
place in the Juvenile at
Churchill last November by
10 lengths.
"What do you think about
that jinx now?" Street Sense
trainer Carl Nafzger said.
"This horse has never run a-
-bad race. He took us here


to third at the mile marker.
Heading into the home
stretch, Borel guided Street
Sense on the outside and
passed Sedgefield for second
place. Then, the horse blew
past the leader, Hard Spun, at
the top of the stretch and
easily pulled away. Street
Sense paid $11.80 to win,
6.40 to place and 4.60 to
show.
"It was the shortest way
around the race track," Borel
said about the rail. "He's a
great horse. I truly don't
know how good he is."
Hard Spun led for the
majority of the race, but came
up short of posting his sixth
victory of his career. He paid
-$9.80 to place and $7 to show.

today, and he has taken us on'

Street Sense won for the
third time in his last four
races. His lone defeat was a
second-place finish to
Dominican by a nose in the
Blue Grass Stakes at
Keeneland on April 14.
"I've always dreamed about
winning this race. Winning
this race and winning the
Breeders' Cup is always a
jockey's dream," said jockey
Calvin Borel.
Nafzger became the 16th
trainer to win two Derbies.
His first came in 1990 with
Unbridled.
Nafzger, who is semi-,
retired from full-time
training, knew he had a
special horse when he started
working with Street Sense.
He was so confident that once
S he told Street Sense owner
James B. Tafel that the colt is
on his way to wearing the
garland of roses.
"Last year Carl said, 'Jim,
we're going to win the
Kentucky Derby,' And I said,
'Pardon,'" Tafel said. "He
made it come true. It's the
epitome of anybody in the
racing business or in their
horse racing career."
It was the first Derby
triumph for Borel, and he did
it by doing a great job of
putting Street Sense in
position in the last half of the
race. In the backstretch, Street
Sense was in 19th place. But
Borel moved the colt to the
rail and Street Sense passed
several horses to move into
contention. He ascended from
17th at the three-quarters pole


choice pick, fell short with. a
third-place finish, paying
$5.60 to show. The horse
came up short of becoming
the first Derby winner to not
run as a 2-year-old since
Apollo in 1882.
Imawildandcrazyguy was
fourth, while Sedgefield
ended up fifth.
Trainer Todd Pletcher had
five horses in the field, but
neither one of them cracked
the top five. Louisiana Derby
winner Circular Quay
finished sixth,
Any Given Saturday was
eighth and Sam P. placed
ninth. Scat Daddy wound up
18th and Cowtown Cat,
winner of the Illinois Derby,
finished 20th.
Former Derby-winning
trainers Barclay Tagg and
John Shirreffs each failed to
win their second Derby. Santa
Anita Derby victory Tiago,
trained by Shirreffs and
ridden by 2005 Derby-
winning jockey Mike Smith,
placed seventh. Tagg's horse,
Wood Memorial winner
Nobiz Like Shobiz, was 10th.
Finishing in positions 11-17
were Dominican, Zanjero,
Great Hunter, Liquidity,
Bwana Bull, Storm in May
and Teuflesberg. Stormello
finished 19th.
The $2 exacta paid $101.80
.and a winning $2 trifecta
wager went for $440. The $2
superfecta paid S29.046.40.
Saturday's attendance was
156,635, the third largest
crowd in Derby history.
