High speed chase leads to arrest


Just before midnight on Wednesday, Aug. 8,
Jasper Police Officer Scott Burke clocked a red
Pontiac traveling 62 MPH in a 35 MPH zone on
US 41, according to a report from the Jasper Po-
lice Department. The driver was later identified,
as Harry Kyle Fletcher, age 38, of Jasper.
When Officer Burke attempted to stop Fletch-
er, he turned right on SW 5th Ave., sped up and
ran the stop sign at the intersection of 5th Ave.
and Martin Luther King Dr., the report states.
Fletcher continued south on 5th Ave, traveling
approximately 62 MPH in 25 MPH zone.
Fletcher turned right on SW 8th St.; then
turned left on SW 107th Ave. and accelerated to
approximately 85 MPH in 25 MPH zone ac-
cording to the report. About three-quarters of a
mile past where the pavement ends on 107th


Ave., Fletcher lost control of the car. The car hit
a tree and rolled two or three times.
Brandon Atwood, age 22, of Jasper, David
Williams, age 30,. of High Springs, and a juve-
nile were passengers in the car. Fletcher and the.
passengers were transported to Lake City Med-
ical Center with serious injuries, the report stat-
ed.
The juvenile told Officer Burke they were go-
ing to the store when Fletcher ran from the po-
lice, according to the report. He also stated
Fletche'r gave him beer and pot, according to the
report.
Williams said when Fletcher fled from the po-
lice, he grabbed the steering wheel in an at-

Submitted by Cecil Davis

In the space of just three short
months, Addie Mae Smith has
traveled around the world two
times.
In early April she accompanied
her son, Art Smith, to an interna-
tional cookbook exhibition in Bei-
jing, China, where he received his

will be attending college on scholar-
ship-. Four members of the Trojan team
will move on to play collegiate football
.with football scholarships. One member
of the team will be moving on to college
with an academic scholarship.
According to Athletic Director Carole
O'Cain this is the first time there have
been this many students to attend col-

Sowell have each worked
hard to achieve their goals
and will make Hamilton
County proud as they en-
ter the worked to begin a
new chapter in their lives.
"I am very proud of the
hard work of our student
athletes in the classroom,
on the field and in the
community," HCHS Prin-
cipal Gene Starr com-
mented. "They daily
make the hard and diffi-
cult choices to succeed. A'
great deal of gratitude
goes not only to their
parental support, but to
their teachers and coaches
as well."
Starr is not the only one
to express thanks to those
who have helped the
players achieve success.
Each of the boys specifi-
cally wish to thank those
who have inspired, en-
couraged or believed in
them.
Dominique Claridy,
who will attend Concordia
University in River Forest,
Ill., thanks "his grandpar-
ents, his mother and step-
father, and father for their
help along the way." He
also would like to thank
the teachers who helped
him prepare for college
during his Senior year.


When asked how he feels
about moving on to col-
lege in Illinois, Dominique
said, "I want to go and see
new places and explore
life outside Hamilton
County."
Kirkland Mitchell will
attend Valdosta State Uni-
versity in Valdosta, Ga.,
beginning in the fall. Kirk-
land said, "I would like to
thank God for helping me
be where I'm at right now.
I'd also like to thank my
parents and my brothers."
When asked how he feels
about moving on to col-
lege, Kirkland said, "I'm
nervous but excited at the
same time."
Bennie Morris, who will
attend Concordia College
in Selma, Ala., is already
participating in fall camp
in Alabama and was not in
town.
Will Snipes will attend
North Florida Community
College in Madison. Will
is excited about taking this
new step in his life and is
"looking forward to meet-
ing new friends." Will
would like to thank "my
mom and dad for pushing
me, my grandma for al-
ways being there, and my
friends for always believ-
ing in me." Will is the re-
cipient of an academic


scholarship to attend
NFCC.
Lathaniel Sowell will at-
tend Ferrum College in
Roanoke, Va. Lathaniel is
eager to get to school and
begin football practice. He
said, "I'm ready to make a
name for myself and show
everybody that I can
play." Lathaniel would
like to thank "God and
everyone who believed in
me, especially my mother
who has always been there
for me in every part of my
life. I know it wasn't easy
for her to be a single par-
ent, but she was always
there when I needed her."
All of the players would
like to thank the football
coaching staff for pushing
them to excel in life. When
asked how he feels about
the success of the football
team's Class of 2007 mem-
bers, Coach Corey Green
said, "All five of these
guys have had a goal to go
to college. I am proud that
they have individually put
in the work to reach their
goal. This past year's Se-
nior class was made up of
.some great individuals. I
hope the underclassmen
follow suit and see that
their dreams really can be-
come reality. All it takes is
hard work."


Election

questing a special referen--
dum. They collected the sig-
natures of more than one-
quarter of the registered
voters in Hamilton County
and presented it to the
County Commissioners in
June. The Commissioners
then voted 4-1 to set a date
for the election.
According to GO Hamil-
ton spokesmen Sammy Mc-
Coy and Richie McCoy, the
election is not about liquor
by the glass; but about eco-
nomic growth. They both
pointed out that alcohol was
already available in the
county, at liquor stores, gro-
cery stores and convenience
stores.
"If we can get decent ho-
tels and restaurants here,


then we can get other busi-
nesses here," Sammy Mc-
Coy said. "There is no where
for business people to eat or
stay or have meetings.
Thousands of cars travel on
1-75 every day, we should
give them a reason to stop
and spend their money
here."
"People from Hamilton
County go to Lake City and
Valdosta and spend their
money," Richie McCoy said.
"Why should we spend our
.money in other places and
help their kids? We should
spend it here to help our
kids."
The help he is referring to
is more jobs. They both think
if the liquor by the drink leg-
islation is passed, then
restaurants, hotels and other
businesses will locate in the


county. They say the busi-
nesses will provide jobs and
tax revenue for the county,
leading to improved schools
and community services.
Joe Friedman at the Flori-
da Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
said the number of liquor
permits that will be issued
will be based on the popula-
.tion of the county. Accord-
ing to the Division of Alco-
holic Beverages and Tobacco
website, one liquor license
can be issued per 7,500 resi-
dents in a county. The esti-
mated population of Hamil-
ton County in 2006 was
14,215, according to the US
Census Bureau. Other limi-
tations will also apply such
as minimum square footage
and seating capacity, accord-
ing to Friedman.

world attended the exhibi-
tion and displayed the
cookbooks they had writ-
ten.
Addie said the cherry
trees were blooming, and it
was a lovely sight. In Bei-
jing they toured the colorful
Forbidden City. She was
amazed at how poor the
people were, how they
squatted on the street to sell
their wares.
Other than Art's recogni-
tion at the awards banquet,
Addie stated the thing that
impressed her the most was
the Great Wall of China and
its history. She and Art took
a cable car to the top of the
Great Wall and walked
along it. Constructed with
slave labor over a period of
2,000 years, the wall is built
on the tops of mountains,
spanning 6,600 miles across
China. It is the only man-
made structure visible from
outer space, Addie noted.
Addie lost weight while
in China because so much
of the food was inedible to
her.


"Some of it wiggled when
I touched it with my fork,"
she said, grimacing and
pointing to a photo of some-
thing named "sea puppies."
They ate only the local
food except for one coffee at
a Beijing Starbuck's. Addie
said a typical Chinese
breakfast Was steamed veg-
etables and hot tea. There
were few desserts and little
sugar. If there was dessert,
it was fruit.
"The diet must work,"
she commented, "because I
never saw any overweight
people."
Addie had just gotten
over her jet-lag and gotten
back into her routine when
it was time to pack her suit-
case again. Art was invited
to teach Southern cooking
at the Oprah Winfrey Lead-
ership Academy for Girls
near Johannesburg, South
Africa, and Addie went as
his assistant. This was not a
random selection: Art had
worked as Oprah's chef for
ten years, and currently he
is the chef for any special
functions she hosts. He is
also a contributing editor to


0 and to 0 at Home maga-
zines. Art and Addie taught
Southern cooking.
Teaching three classes per
day, Art and Addie's day
began at 5:30 each morning
with preparations for class
and ended twelve hours lat-
er as they finished the clean
up. Addie said although it
was really tiring, she just
loved being with the stu-
dents.
"They are the most pre-
cious girls," she exclaimed,
a big smile lighting up her
face. Having the foresight to
take a gift of a friendship
bracelet to each girl, Addie
was rewarded by the girls'
reactions. They quickly took
to her, calling her "Grand-
ma Addie."
Before she and Art left,
many of the girls wrote col-
orful notes of thanks to her
on a chef's apron. She has
decided not to put it in a
display case but to wear the
apron, remembering'the
girls when she cooks meals
at home.
Besides the girls, Addie
was very impressed with
the campus. "Everything


was just beautiful," Addie
exclaimed, "with colorful
African art everywhere."
She said all the girls dress
alike in uniforms and jog-
ging suits.
At the end of the week, a
dosing ceremony was held
for all the visiting instruc-
tors. As they left the cam-
pus, the guests walked be-
tween two long rows of
singing girls who then fol-
lowed them to the cars. Ad-
die said, "My entire shirt
was wet from my tears and
the tears of the girls who
came up to hug me." She
was moved with emotion as
she remembered the girls
and their expressions of
love and appreciation.
When they left the Acade-
my, they spent a few days
at the Tshukudu Bush
Lodge in a game preserve
where each bedroom had a
fireplace. Because it was,
wintertime in South Africa,
the guests were given fire-
wood to make their own


fires. Addie's died out in
the middle of the night,
"and I woke up just freez-
ing!" Because she was so
cold, she wore "three pair of
'pants and five sweaters,"
she said in amazement,
counting them on her fin-
gers.
"Wild animals were
everywhere," she reported.
They saw hippos in a river
near their windows in the
lodge and rhinos walked
across a nearby road. When
she was able to view the
photos she had taken, Ad-
die was surprised to see a
male lion, strolling in front
of her in a shot she had tak-
en of the front of the lodge,
which is on the side of a
mountain. "I was focusing
on getting the best angle of
the lodge and didn't even
see him," she said in amaze-
ment.
There was an abundance
of monkeys right outside
their windows that every-
one enjoyed watching. On


one occasion Art inadver-
tently left his bedroom door
open, and when he re-
turned, he and Addie were
faced with a monkey-occu-
pied room. The monkeys
had taken all the sugar
packets, which were the
size and shape of slender
cones. One monkey was sit-
ting outside the bedroom
window with a sugar pack-
et in each corner of his
mouth. "He looked like he
had whiskers," Addie
laughed.
When asked which trip
was her favorite, Addie
thought for a moment and
responded, "The one to
South Africa because of the
girls. They were just so pre-
cious."
Addie Mae is glad to be
back in Jasper. Her two
trips have given her a lot of
precious memories. She has
already made a photo al-
bum of the trip to China
and plans to start one for
the South African trip soon.

Addie brought home several beautiful souvenirs from Africa. Some, like the small bas-
kets, were made by the girls W't the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

SLiquor by the Drink.

* Don't be fooled, we are not trying to bring alcohol to the *
* county. With our four liquor stores and countless *
* convenience stores selling beer and wine, we are NOT a dry *
*county. *


* The Go Hamilton Committee was formed in hopes of *
* bringing economic growth to the County. We feel that if you *
bring upscale.hotels and restaurants to the county,. other high *
paying companies will follow. Our county has become a *
* welfare county with the highest rate of poverty in the state of *
Florida. This was no accident. Lots of hard work went into *

* causing this type of economic disaster with three *
* interchanges off 1-75. We should be prosperous. not desolate. *
In order to start progress "we must bring in the tourist dollars x
from 1-75. County Officials need to upgrade roads, utilities, *
and even recreation centers in Jasper, Jennings, and White *
Springs. These tax dollars are the tools they need.

*^ *
Most of all, we are losing our most precious commodity--
our young people. The need for jobs and opportunities drive *
them to other towns and cities. So before you vote no, think *
about it--the same restaurants and hotels that you travel to *
dine at or stay in, are the same hotels and restaurants we are *
trying to bring here. Not only will we bring tourists dollars to x
Hamilton County but we can spend our own dollars at home
will providing jobs for our young people. So go to the polls *
and vote YES on August 21st. The GO Hamilton Committee *
hopes you will see that this is much bigger and than "Liquor
by the drink." *

Environmentalists, with
the help of politicians and
other government officials,
have an agenda that has cost
thousands of American lives.
In the wake of Hurricane
Betsy, which struck New Or-
leans in 1965, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers pro-
posed building flood gates
on Lake Pontchartrain, like
those in the Netherlands that

To the Editor:


house told the court that not
building the gates could kill
thousands of New Orleani-
ans. Judge Charles Schwartz
issued the injunction despite
the evidence refuting claims
of environmental damage.
We're told that DDT is
harmful to humans and ani-
mals. Berlau, a research fel-
low at the Washington, D.C-
based Competitive Enter-
prise Institute, says, "Not a
single study linking DDT ex-
posure to human toxicity has
ever been replicated." In one
long-term study, volunteers
ate 32 ounces of DDT for a
year and a half, and 16 years
later, they suffered no in-
creased risk of adverse
health effects.
Despite evidence that,
properly used, DDT is nei-
ther harmful to humans nor,
animals, environmental ex-
tremists fight for a continued
ban. This has led to millions
of illnesses and deaths from
malaria, especially in Africa.
After WWII, DDT saved mil-
lions upon millions of lives-
in India, Southeast Asia and
South America. In some cas-
es, malaria deaths fell to near

zero. With bans on DDT,
malaria deaths and illnesses
have skyrocketed.
Environmental extremists
see DDT in a different light.
Alexander King, co-founder
of the Club of Rome, said,
"In Guyana, within almost
two years, it had .almost
eliminated malaria, but at
the same time, the birth rate
had doubled. So my chief
quarrel with DDT in hind-
sight is that it greatly added
to the population problem."
Jeff Hoffman, .environmental
attorney, wrote on grist.org,
"Malaria was actually a nat-
ural population control, and
DDT has caused a massive
population explosion in
some places where it has
eradicated malaria. More
fundamentally, why should
humans get priority over
other forms of life?... I don't


see any respect for mosqui-
toes in these posts." Berlau's
book cites many other exam-
ples of contempt for human
life by environmentalists and
how they've made politi-
cians their useful idiots.
In 2001, thousands of
Americans perished in the
terrorist attack on the World
Trade Center. In the early
1970s, when the World
Trade Center complex was
built, the asbestos scare had
just begun. The builders
planned to use As-
bestoSpray, a flame retar-
dant that adhered to steel.
The New York Port of Au-
thority caved in to the envi-
ronmentalists' asbestos scare
and denied its use. An inferi-
or substitute was used as
fireproofing.
After the attack, the Na-
tional Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) con-
firmed other experts' con-
cerns about asbestos substi-
tutes, concluding, "Even
with the airplane impact and
jet-fuel-ignited multi-floor
fires, which were not normal
building fires, the building
would likely not have col-
lapsed had it not been for the
fireproofing."
Through restrictions on as-
bestos use, our naval vessels
are more vulnerable to our
enemies, a disaster waiting
in the wings. The Columbia
spaceship disaster was a re-
sult of the EPA's demand
that NASA not use freon in
its thermal insulating foam.
Congress mandates auto
fuel mileage standards Cor-
porate Average Fuel Econo-
my, or CAFE, standards re-
sulting in lighter, less crash-
worthy cars. In 2002, the Na-
tional Academy of Sciences
calculated that CAFE stan-
dards caused 2,000 addition-
al traffic deaths each year. In'
1999, a USA Today analysis
of government and Insur-
ance Institute data found
that since the'1970s CAFE
standards went into effect,
46,000 people died in crashes
which they would have like-
ly survived had they been
riding in heavier cars.
None of this is news to
politicians. It's just that envi-
ronmental extremists have
the ears of politicians, and
potential victims don't.

As a former member of
the Town Council in
White Springs for six
years, I am no stranger to
controversy and spirited
discussion but I was flab-
bergasted at the remarks
attributed to Jennings'
Mayor Barrett!
"God is going to crucify
some of ya'll. You're
messing with the wrong
preacher now. Somebody
is going to pay. God done
showed me that some of
ya'll got remission of can-
cer it gonna come back."
Now I'm not going to at-
-tack anyone's faith but I


will say that when a mem-
ber of your government
calls on God to punish or
crucify people for speak-
ing their minds, it sounds
more like the Taliban than
the Town of Jennings! If
Mayor Barrett did indeed
say these things he should
resign ... immediately!!
The people of Jennings
deserve better but they
will have to get involved,
go to council meetings
and most importantly,
build community bridges,
not burn them.

Inspiration Point
by Rick Leland

When he touched my
hand, he touched my heart.
My destination was the-
prayer chapel that's
where my focus was.
Walking across the mis-
sionary compound, a small
hand found my hand; un-
expectedly I was holding
hands with one of the or-
phans who lived there.
I was thousands of miles
from home, just off the east
coast of Africa; the affec-
tion was welcome.
I stumbled through some
elementary conversation
that consisted more of ges-
tures and smiles than of the
Portuguese language.
Name and age are always
easy to interpret. My new
friend was ten-year-old
Fanuel.
I struggled to communi-
cate. "Father?" No. "Moth-
er?" No. With his answers,
sadness came over Fanuel's
face that pierced my heart.
He turned, looking away
from me.
Now what do I say?
What do I say to a child
whose parents are proba-

bly dead? A child who has
probably lived on the
streets and is hoping to
bury these unpleasant,
haunting memories.
I prayed silently, "God
help me."
"Fanuel" I said. He
looked at me. God let my
eyes communicate love:
"Fanuel, es muito bom."
Translation: Fanuel is very
good.
He almost started crying;
so did I.
The simple phrase -
"Fanuel is very good" im-
pacted him in a way I nev-
er could have imagined.
Later as I thought over his
reaction, I realized that I
may have been the only
person in his life to ever tell
him he was good.
The wisdom of the Bible
says, "Pleasant words are
as dripping honey, sweet
to the soul." "
Two-and-half weeks lat-
er, I hugged Fanuel and
gently rubbed his short,
bristly hair. I kneeled in the
sand, looking him in the
eyes for the last time:
"Fanuel es 'muito bom." I
smiled inside as I saw the
sweetness in his soul.

White Springs







._By Johnny Bullard


The eighteenth century
novelist Jane Austen wrote
in one of her novels "What
dreadful hot weather we
are having. It keeps me in a
continual state of inele-
gance."
I don't know that I've
ever thought of myself as
elegant, but if one has to re-
main trying to look fresh in
this kind of weather, as my
Daddy often said, "Luck to
you."!
I was reminiscing with
Leann Brewer Klinger,
Lake City, not too long ago.
Our memories of summer
included swimming and
socializing with our many
friends at the springhouse
in White Springs. When we
were young people, the
springs were said to dis-
charge several thousand
gallons ot waters per
minute. The springs no
longer run the way they did
when we were children.
Something has adversely
affected the aquifer, and
gone are days when the
springs ran with force into
the Suwannee. I am happy
that the state has preserved
this piece of nature for the
people of the state of Flori-
da.


have contributed much to
our local community. I ap-
preciate them and their
spirit of altruism. I still
want Nick and Cathy to
work on a deal with the lo-
cal farmer's market and
work on having more fresh
vegetables on their buffet. I
know people would appre-
ciate them and wouldn't
mind paying a little more
for good, fresh vegetables.
You know I love you, Nick
and Cathy, but I had to
throw that in.
It was good to see John
and Roberta Lacefield who
are, at times, neighbors of
mine. They have always
enjoyed our area and they,
along with Dottie and Den-
nis Price, own some prop-
erty north of us.
I am always happy to see
one of my former students
Stephanie Sistrunk (and
forgive me Stephanie I
don't recall your married
name). Stephanie is an inte-
gral part of the medical
practice of my physician,
Dr. Brent Hayden, in Lake
City. I am vern proud of
Stephanie and all her many
accomplishments, and I


know her parents, Sherril
and Lula Mae Sistrunk,
share the pride I have in
Stephanie.
Speaking of former stu-
dents, I was delighted to
see, just for a "short
minute," Patricia Brown, in
the post office at White
Springs, about a week ago.
Patricia is now a registered
nurse, and I remember
when her son started
kindergarten at South
Hamilton, and he's proba-
bly in middle or high
school now.
Doug and Catherine Lee
are good friends. They live
out near Facil, and Mama
and I shared a visit with
them on Friday, Aug. 10, at,
where else, Wal-Mart in
Live Oak. They expressed
their pride in granddaugh-
ter Amber who is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Chris Lee Amber will be
going to the Baptist Theo-
logical College over at
Graceville, Florida, where
she will pursue her studies
to be a minister of music.
Amber has a God given tal-
ent and a beautiful voice.
We wish this special young


lady well.
LT Ogburn will soon be
opening Taglione's old
restaurant in White
Springs. LT is a fine young
man, and I think a lot of
him. I wish him all the best
in his future business en-
deavors. I am also very
proud of Rev. Byron Og-
bum, son of Rev. and Mrs.
Randy Ogburn, and the late
Connie Ogburn. Byron has
certainly availed himself to
be an instrument and a ser-
vant for Jesus Christ, and
the church he founded at
Facil seems to be growing
and prospering.
Please don't forget to
vote on Aug. 21, regarding
the "Liquor by the Drink"
issue. This is a very impor-
tant issue, and I encourage
everyone to get out and
vote. If you want to vote
early, you may do so at the
Supervisor of Elections Of-
fice in Jasper. Polling places
will be opened on Tuesday,
Aug. 21, from 7 a.m. till 7
p.m. If you don't vote then
don't fuss about the out-
come. Your vote is your
voice.
Woody and Tracy


Woodard continue clearing
and cleaning their lot on US
41 across from the S&S
Food Store. Woody and
Tracy plan on building a
mini-storage unit in this
area in the next several
months. We wish Woody
and Tracy all the best with
this business endeavor.
Teachers, principals, and
district school staff are all
back at. work. They started
school on Monday, Aug. 13,
as this is,the beginning of
the 2007-08 school year.
. I will be working over in
Columbia County where
we start the school year
with nearly 10,000 students
district wide and nearly
1400 school employees.
This will be quite a change
for me, but I am looking
forward to it. I will always
appreciate the fact that they
hired me during my "hour
of need," and I never forget
a kindness just as I never
forget a slight. I may for-
give, but I don't forget -
God is still working on me
in that area, and I freely ad-
mit it. Still, when you've
been thrown out of your
home county like yester-


day's dirty dish water in a
place where your people
have paid huge amounts of
taxes since the early 1800's,
it is good to know that there
are those who may have an
appreciation for your dif-
ference in philosophy. I
wish everyone a great
school year.
I haven't been inside the
White Springs Community
Center, but I understand a
lot of good work has been
done on the building. I
hope those who use this fa-
cility will take care of it and
not abuse it. The. city needs
to monitor the use of this
historic facility and not let
folks tear it up.
There is one major eye-
sore in the historic district
of White Springs I am by
property like I am a lot of
other things if you can't
afford to keep it up, you
shouldn't purchase it, and
if you can't afford to keep. it
up, sell it to someone who
can. It makes me very sad
to see this property jtist let
'go.
Have a good week Hamil-
ton County
-I love you.

Lawns and plants can
turn brown for many rea-
sons. Heat, drought and
humidity are among the
most common. What many
lawn lovers don't realize,
however, is that browning
can also be caused by lawn
disease.
One of the worst things
that can be done to a dis-
eased lawn is to water it.
Water can actually help
spread the disease and in-
crease browning.
Lawn diseases are not
easy to diagnose, and it's.
,best to prevent diseases be-
fore .they occur. Using a
multipurpose fungicide
will help protect the lawn,
trees, shrubs and flowers
from damaging diseases,
and keep it looking its best.
One of the most common
lawn diseases is brown
patch, which is evident by
brown, water-soaked areas
that appear under condi-
tions of high humidity.
Other diseases include dol-
lar spot, which shows up
as dead spots on the indi-
vidual grass blades and
fusarium blight, which be-
comes severe during dry,

hot periods after wetness.
Pythium blight disease is
caused by high moisture
conditions.
The best way to cure a
diseased lawn is to apply a
fungicide. To determine
which fungicide is best,
consider lawn grass variety
and the climate. There are
three main forms of fungi-
cides and each has its ad-
vantages: granular, pow-
der and liquid concentrate.
The granular type is
spread over the lawn using
a broadcast spreader. It
takes a little longer to work
and some infestations
might require a longer act-
ing product. Fungicides
also come in powder or liq-
uid concentrate, which are
mixed with water and ap-
plied through a pump
sprayer.
Liquid fungicides are
also available in an aerosol
spray for treating diseased
shrubs or smaller areas of
your lawn. All three usual-
ly work for up to two
weeks before they need to
be reapplied.
All fungicides are either
contact or systemic. Con-
tact fungicides have to en-
counter the blades of grass
thoroughly, so it works
fairly fast. Systemic fungi-
cides are absorbed by the
plant either through the
root system or leaf and kill
the fungus from within.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Do we get tired of hear-
ing and thinking about the
weather? It is that time of
* year, and as usual there is
always some side of the
weather that seems worth
bringing up. About bed-
time Sunday night it
sounded good to me and
some others, but to some it
was not so nice.
Melody of the Jasper
News told me that they had
unfortunate situation at her
house. The lights went out
twice' Worse than that they
did have a large tool shed,
they do not have it now. It
was completely, destroyed
during the storm. Before
talking with her it was just
a "good rain" to me. I know
that is a matter of great
concern to her and her hus-
band and our concern goes
out to them. I did notice
later in my backyard a tree
that. had been hit before
had several limbs down.
When I looked up, it has
been almost stripped,
guess that means I had bet-
ter get busy and get it taken
down.
Thanks to all of you who
participated in the benefit
for Jody Selph last week. It.
must have been a big suc-


c e s s
considering the crowd and
that they ran out of food
EARLY. Many were work-
ing in preparing and serv-
ing; some of us just enjoyed
eating. I could not begin to
tell who all worked but
those who did, but every-
one did a great job. I
planned to go what I
thought was early, before
the noon hour crowd got
there. When I arrived
shortly after 11:30 a.m. they
had already sold out of
food, so we just enjoyed
visiting while waiting, it
was worth the wait.
The teachers and staff
members of all the schools,
as well as all the county of-
fices, are back in full force
getting ready to welcome
the 'students next week.
Some of whom will be ex-
cited, some reluctant and
some wondering what will
be happening. Don't forget
to be on the lookout for the
increase in traffic, especial-
ly school buses and chil-
dren, whether on buses or
walking. It always takes
time for everyone to get
back in the swing of things.
Sometimes there is confu-
sion, so be careful and re-


sponsible.
Congratulations to the
Hamilton Stompers basket-
ball team. What a wonder-
ful experience they have
had and what an honor,
well-earned, to be able to
compete in the 2007 Special
Olympics Summer World
Games in Shanghai, China
in October. They will repre-
sent the United States.*
More important to us, they
will proudly represent
Hamilton County. The best
of luck to all who will be in-
volved in this endeavor.
We will know more
about what the new Coun-
ty Manager plans for the


future after this paper
comes out. Danny Johnson
will be speaking at the
Jasper Lions Club on Tues-
day evening (it will already
have been when you read
this) at Rooster's, where
Michelle feeds the Lions
Club twice a month (the Ki-
wanis Club meets on
Wednesday at the former
Middle School cafeteria).
It looks as if Hardee's is
going to be opening soon.
we hear a lot of rumors and
know there will be more
news coming. They are
working down there now. I
remember years ago (I do
not remember when, I


know it was when our of-
fices (Jasper News) were lo-
cated where Margie's
Flower Shop is now) the
company was very interest-
ed and we had a lot of con-
tact with them. It is our un-
derstanding that "local
folks" are opening it and if
what we hear is true, it will
be in good hands. Mac's
place is booming, they are
offering food several nights
a week for those who just
do not want to prepare
meals at night. It is good to
have a nice place to go in
town the family and staff
are pleasant and welcome
their guests. On Sundays


families and those coming
from church visit at H&F.
If you call and can't get
me, leave a message. I am
going to Valdosta twice a
week for physical therapy
and usually have errands,
usually it is on Tuesday
and Thursday, but as soon
as I get in, I check my ma-
chine. I want to hear from
you.
Remember to vote!

Members of the Hamilton County SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) attended a mock funeral procession and
press conference in Tallahassee on May 31. (Photo Submitted)


'By Jonathan Banks


The students members of
Hamilton County SWAT
(Students Working Against
Tobacco) traveled to the
"Sunshine State" capitol,
Tallahassee, on Thursday,
May 31, to participate in a
mock funeral procession
and a SWAT press confer-


ence. About 50 students at-
tended the event and the
12-member group from
Hamilton County was the
largest present.
After arriving ,the stu-
dents -were greeted by the
Leon County SWAT chair
and organizer of the rally,
who explained the proce-
dure for the procession.
Each student took part in
the procession and two'of
our students were acting
coffin carriers. The proces-
sion started at the Westcott
Building on the FSU cam-
pus and ended at the steps
of the State Capitol where a-
press conference took place.


Five students from differ-
ent counties in the North
Florida region spoke on be-
half of SWAT.
The conference's main
point was how tobacco
companies are luring ingthe
youth with "spit tobacco"
by adding sweet substances
or candy flavorings. The
students defended their
points with testimony and
statistics from the state.
I The most exciting part of
the whole. day was the
singing of a chant or song,
"One we are 'the truth, two
protecting, youth, three I
still can't hear you, four
more, more, more." This


was sung three times and
after the third 'chorus we all
yelled "SWAT!" The day
ended with a group picture
and great experience.
I took home a new found
knowledge oft the truth that
SWAT and all its members
are trying to present, not
only to the youth but to the
American people. The
SWAT members of Hamil-
ton .County would like to
thank anyone who helped
organize or transport the
group to this wonderful
event and wants everyone
to .remember, "Truth is
Knowledge and Knowl-
edge .is Power."

Members of the team practice belaying on the new ropes course. (Photo Submitted)


North Florida Communi-
ty College (NFCC) gave its
new "ropes" course its first'
test run recently when a
group of NFCC faculty,
staff and friends maneu-
vered the above-ground
challenge for three days.
The group was training as
facilitators to guide others
through the course.'
"Awesome," said Vickie
Boss6 in describing the ex-
perience. "It was very chal-
lenging. I was scared to
death, but I learned a lot
about myself and my co-
workers," she said. Boss6 is
no novice to ropes courses
and has trained on similar
obstacles four or five times.
"It was very empowering."
Elizabeth Gonzales said,
"It was physically and
emotionally challenging."
A first timer on the ropes
.course, Gonzales said that
the team learned to set up
all the course elements and
make sure security proce-
dures were in place. "The
trust and team building ac-


tivities will really help me
in the NFCC tutoring pro-
grams," she said.
"The experience took me
totally out of my comfort
zone and challenged my
mental and physical
skills. I am better off for it
and convinced that the kids
I work with as well
as adults will benefit from
the experience," said Lon-
nie Ford,' CROP case man-'
ager.
Cathy Simcox, dean of
career and technical pro-
grams, said the ropes ob-*
stacle course helps build
teamwork.
The course allows partic-
ipants to take risks in an at-
mosphere of safety and fun
- not necessarily physical
risks, but emotional and
"perceived" risks where
the participant sees the nat-
ural consequences before
them. Elements of the
course are both low to the
ground and as high as 35 to
40 ft. high. Safety is key
and many safety features


are built in.
Studies reveal that learn-
ers remember 80% of what
they do, 50% of what they
see and 20% of what they
hear. ExeIrcises such as the
NFCC.rofes course forge
experiences to enhance
personal growth, confi-
dence building and critical
thinking skills.
According to Simcox,
"We will ,,be bringing in
NFCC adult and youth
leadership academy partic-
ipants to 'tackle the cht-
lenge course at the endr
the sumr 'r. After our in-
structors save logged plen-
ty of price themselves,
we will o en it for certain
NFCC cl ses, clubs and
outside, businesses and
nonprofit groups."'
After Sept. 15, communi-
ty groups, schools and
business organizations in-
terested in reserving the
course may contact Simcox
by telephone at 850-973-
1614 or email
simcoxC@nfcc.edu.

Dear Students and
Parents:
In just a few short days,
the 2007 summer break will
be over and our students
will return for 2007-2008.
We have, been busily
preparing for their first day
on Monday, Aug. 20, and
we trust they will be as ex-
cited to start the new
school year as we are to
have them with us! May it
be a safe and productive
year for everyone.
I would like to take this
opportunity to recognize
the most important people
in our school system: the
students. It is my pleasure


Back to


to welcome them and to en-
courage them to do their
very best. My staff and I
have worked throughout
the summer to make sure
the students have the tools
they will need to meet their
educational goals. It is our
hope they will take advan-
tage of the learning oppor-
tunities that await them.
To the parents and other
members of the comnmuni-
ty, I invite you to become a
part of the district's team
by promoting our school
system and supporting the
students in their education-
al and extra-curricular ac-
tivities. There is an expres-


o school


safety tips


With the start of the new
school year, students will,
be rushing to be on time,
parents will be getting
them on their way, and
drivers will be going about
their business all could
heed some advice on safe-
ty. "This is a critical time of
the year,".noted Ray Paler-
mo, director of public in-
formations for Teachers' In-
surance Plan. ,"Drivers
need to re-acclimate them-
selves to having children
on and near the road, par-
1 ticularlv at rush hours.
-And, both children and
their parents need to get
back into their good traffic
safety habits." He offered
several tips from their
.Safety Information Center.
Tips for Walking or
,< Biking to School

Walk with a friend.
Pay attention to all traffic
ignal.s and crossing
"* Guards. Never cross the
Street against a stop light.
': Cross only at crosswalks,
Street from between
'parked cars.
; Look left, right, and over
your shoulder for traffic
',before crossing a street,
and continue to check each
direction.
Make sure drivers see
.you by making eye contact
with them.
i~ Tips for School Bus Rid-


. L ers
Do not play in the street
while waiting for the bus.
Line up facing the bus,
not along side it.


,^ -_~~,^ -. -

After getting off the bus,
move out of traffic.
Wait for the bus driver to
signal you to cross the
street. Walk away from the
front of the bus so the dri-
ver can see you.
Tips for Parents and Dri-
vers
Everyone should wear a
seatbelt, and children'
should be in age and size:
appropriate tar seats,
Stay focused on driving
and don't be distracted by
kids in the car of with oth-
er activities. -
Slow down in school
zones. Driving just five
MPH over the speed limit
increases both the risk of
hitting a child and the
severity of any injuries.
.You never know if chil-
dren crossing the street are
paying attention, so re-
main stopped until the
child has crossed not only
your lane of traffic, but the
adjacent lane as well.
Never pass a vehicle that
has stopped at a crosswalk,
as they may be waiting for
someone to cross.
Do not pass a school bus
*when its red lights are
flashing, even if it is on the
other side of the street.
Use extra care in areas
where children the road from between
parked vehicles or other
things that block drivers'
view of the road. And,
watch out for bicycles.

ty visit

Our school district re-
mains committed to im-

ment. There have been
may great accomplish-

any endeavor, there is al-

more. As always, we ac-

SCHOOL WELCOMES


YOU BACK!


Come Monday morning,
Aug. 20, bells will be ring-
ing, and sounds of excite-
ment, confusion, and
maybe a little sadness will
fill the air at South Hamil-
ton. On behalf of the SHE
faculty and staff, wve WEL-
srh .COQM[E all pfpu.r, s tudents,;r
back for a new year. Our
student population contin-
ues to grow and we wel-
come our new students to
SHE. Parents, we will do
everything we can to help
your children) become
academically successful.
This should be an excit-
ing year for our students
because we have made
many changes. We have
made improvements in the
school's physical plant,
and staff and academic
changes have been made as
well. SUMS has expanded
from mathematics to in-
clude science, and we plan
to have our science lab and
mathematics lab. open for
business shortly after the
he beginning of school. We
fe- appreciate the efforts of
nd .PCS, especially employees
Mr. Mike Williams and Mr.
g- Rob Wolfe, in assisting us
)r- with preparing the science
,ar lab.
We also have some new
:es faces on, board. First, we
welcome Ms. Ellen Gay
back to SHE. Ms. Gay and I
taught together at SHE, a
few years ago. Mrs. Gay'
will be our ESE instructor
and will be assisting other
teachers with academics as
well. Mrs. Theresa
Cameron from Hillsbor-
ough County will be our
music instructor this year
and we welcome her. We
are excited to have Mrs.
Cameron and we believe
the children will "get moti-


vated" to the music.
Along with the sunshine,
there comes a little rain
sometimes and we are dis-
appointed because Mrs. Jan
.Hunter is no longer with
us; however, we wish her
the best at her new job,
iChnary Arts ,Instructor
for Hamilton County High
School. Ms. Jan, I will stop
by and see if you. are doing
your job! .(A little cake
might help, preferably
chocolate). Also, we will be
hiring a new teacher soon
and when that person is on
board, I will introduce him
or her to you.
Safety Day will begin at
1:15 p.m. on Aug. 20 in
front of SHE and we thank
Officer Tracy Capallia and
the Town. of White Springs
for sponsoring, the event.
We also thank Mayor
Joseph' McKire arid the
town council for .their sup-
port in keeping our school
zone safe. We appreciate
those that volunteer to be
school crossing guards.
Our afternoon loading
procedure will be the same
procedure as last year. Par-
ents, we encourage you to
not check your children)
out early for they are losing
valuable instructional time,
which hurts them academi-
cally, Also, we encourage
you to have you children in
school-on time. Reading is
the first block of the day
and it is protected time.
Tardies interrupt the in-
struction of other children
as well as cause your chil-
dren to fall behind the rest
of the class. ,
School will begin at 8
a.m., and dismiss at 2:55
p.m. Students, enjoy these
last days of summer and
we will see you on Aug. 20!

grade, 4th grade has been
moved to the kindergarten
pod and grades K-3 are lo-
cated inside of the main

cess will be the focus of this
school year and the follow-
ing years. Join Central as we

Tips for a winning


parent-teacher relationship


Behind every successful
public school student is a
great public school
teacher. And great teach-
ers make great public
schools. But teachers can't
do it alone..
The research is clear:
Students perform better in
school when their parents
are actively involved in
their education.
"Teachers help students
soar and make their hopes
and dreams come true,"
said Reg Weaver, presi-
dent of the National Edu-
cation Association. "And
when parents are involved
in their children's educa-
tion, they will go farther -
and the schools they at-
tend are better."
NEA offers five easy
ways for parents to get
more involved in educa-


tion year-round:
Check in with teachers
on a regular basis. Be
proactive and don't wait
for problems or challenges
to arise before taking ac-
tion.
Get to know the guid-
ance counselors and other
school employees. Educa-
tion support professionals
generally know all the stu-
dents in the school, and
their relationship with-
your children will' contin-
ue as they move from one
grade to the next.
Attend school events.
Open houses, parent-
teacher conferences,
dances or other school ac-
tivities provide good op-
portunities for parents to
connect with teachers and
school employees.
Volunteer at the school.


Make time in your sched-
ule to help with school
plays, act as a classroom
helper or to chaperone
field trips.
Keep the lines of com-
munication open. Whether
they are your children's
classmates, friends or
neighbors, get to know
others especially parents
who have children attend-
ing the same school. Form
support groups to work on
problems and issues of
mutual interest.
"The home is an exten-
sion of the learning that
takes place inside the
classroom," Weaver said.
"When parents get in-
volved in their child's edu-
cation, everyone wins."
For more tips and re-
sources for parents, visit
www.nea.org.


Make healthy lunch choices for kids


Obesity rates are on the
rise, and many children eat
too much junk food, never
mind eating fruits and veg-
etables regularly.,Therefore
it becomes- essential that
parents take an active role
in helping children to make
healthy dietary choices.
There are plenty of ways to
do so without forcing kids
to load up on Brussels
sprouts and broccoli.
Fill the house with
healthy snacks. Make sure
that a well-balanced array
of fruits and vegetables are
part of the mix, as these
foods are rich in the nutri-
ents and vitamins bodies
need to maintain
health and fight ill-
nesses. Leave a bowl
of fresh fruit on
the counter so
'that apples,
pears or or-
anges can be
snacked on
after school or
when kids

O ,P
^^r ''


have the munchies.
While many people are
quick to blame snacks as
the main culprit in a
,healthy, diet,..some, fail to
recognize that beverages -
particularly soda and sug-
ary soft drinks can play a
major role. You may not be
aware that many juice
drinks on the market today
aren't any better. However,
kids heading off to school
with a boxed drink can en-
joy varieties that are
healthy if parents ensure
that the only juice boxes
that they send are made
from 100% pure fruit juice.
Lunch is one of the
biggest areas of concern for
'parents
when it
comes to
children's
diets. Par-
/ ents have
j the option
of packing
left-
^. ^ overs


from the previous night's
dinner for their children.
Leftover chicken cutlets,
for instance, can be made
into healthy and delicious
chicken wraps for the next
day's lunch.
While a well-rounded
diet is a start to a kid's
health plan, parents should
realize that exercise is also
an important component,
Encourage your kids to en-
gage in physical activity
each day, whether playing
with the dog in the yard,
starting a pick-up game of,
whiffle ball with the neigh-.
borhood kids or participat-
ing in a team sporting ac-
tivity sponsored by school.

At least 30 to 60 minutes of
sustained activity each day
can ensure a healthy
weight and peak physical
condition.


Staying

*6 Don't walk directly
in front of the bus. When
most children get off the
bus, they cross the street di-
rectly in front of the bus.
This makes it difficult for
the bus driver to see if any
children are still in front. In
general, parents should in-
struct children to take five
long paces in the direction
the bus is traveling before
crossing in front of the bus.
This will leave enough
room for the bus driver to
see, especially if kids drop
anything while crossing the
street.

safe on and off the bus


Look both ways
before getting off the bus.
Before stepping off the bus,
kids should always look
both ways. While buses
should always be in the
right lane, bikes or even
cars in. a hurry could at-
tempt to get around the bus
in the shoulder. Many mo-
torists disobey the laws
pertaining to stopping
when a bus stops, so kids
should be extra careful and
always keep their eyes
peeled for moving traffic.
Listen to crossing
guards. Urban neighbor-


hoods or those with a busy
intersection often have
crossing guards to help
keep children safe. Kids
should be instructed to
wait for crossing guards
before venturing across the
street. At stops where no
crossing guard is present,
encourage children to act
with extreme caution when

6.


crossing the street. Should
any books or supplies be
dropped in the middle of
the road, finish crossing the
street first. Once a child has
made it across the street,
check to see if it's safe t6 go
back and pick up the book.
If worse comes to worse, let
kids know the books or
supplies can always be re-
placed.

Risk factors for drug use


While it's impossible to
follow your children every-
where they go, especially
during impressionable and
rebellious teenage years,
there are several noticeable
risk factors for children and
drug abuse. According to
the National Institute on
Drug Abuse (NIDA), how
you and your children react
to these risk factors and
how well you can limit
your child's exposure to
such factors, can go a long
way in determining
whether your child can
avoid the pitfalls of drug
use.
Early aggressive behav-
ior is a risk factor that can
be noticed even in very
young children. Children
who are overaggressive can
be alienated from class-
mates and potential
friends, leading to poor
classroom behavior and
underdeveloped social
skills. As they grow older,
children might try to com-
pensate for these undevel-
oped social skills by caving
in to peer pressure,
whether they're trying to
impress classmates by
smoking cigarettes, drink-
ing alcohol or experiment-
ing with other drugs.
Instilling self-control in
your child is the best means
of protecting them from the
risk of aggressive behavior.
If your child learns to con-
trol himself at an early age,
he's more likely to excel in
social situations, which can
greatly lessen the risk of
drug use later.
Lack of parental supervi-
sion increases the risk of
children becoming in-


volved with drugs. Every
parent should understand
that parental monitoring,
involvement and interest in
your child's life greatly re-
duces their risk of drug use.
A strong bond with your
child will let them know
they always have someone
there for them even when
times get rough.
Peers' substance abuse is
perhaps the most immedi-
ate risk factor for children
and drug abuse. Children
who interact with drug
users are putting them-
selves in a dangerous posi-
tion, as they are far more
likely to experiment and
become users than those
children who are not in
contact with substance
abusers.
A good way to help your
child avoid this pitfall is to
emphasize productive and
fruitful activities, such as
working hard and perform-
ing in the classroom. While
it's important to not put too
much pressure on your
child to perform academi-
cally, letting them know
their best effort is sufficient
and that school is impor-
tant is a good way to gear
them toward students with
similar ideals. Such stu-
dents, in turn, are also less
likely to experiment with
drugs.
Unfortunately, many
teenagers and even under-
age college students will
tell you it's easier to buy
hard drugs than it is alco-
hol. This sets a dangerous
precedent, especially in the
current environment,
where children are exposed
to more and more drugs,


including prescription
drugs, than ever before.
Experimenting with
harder drugs at a young
age sets children up for sig-
nificant problems down the
road. Letting your children
know exactly how harmful
drugs can be to their bodies
is a good way, though cer-
tainly not foolproof, of
helping them avoid drug
use. In addition to educat-
ing them, letting your chil-
dren know you trust them
to make the right decision
now that they know the
negative consequences can
be an effective means of
protection as well.
Poverty can be a difficult
situation to overcome, but
your'financial situation and
where you live are also risk
factors, according to NIDA.
Poorer communities gener-
ally have drugs more read-
ily available, as underfund-
ed schools and- a resulting
lack of opportunity for chil-
dren when they grow up
increase the likelihood of
crime, including the selling
and using of illegal drugs.
A way to overcome this is
to establish strong attach-
ments with like-minded
people in your community.
Keeping an eye out for
your neighbor's children
will likely be reciprocated,
creating a sense of security
all children need, especially
those living in poorer
neighborhoods,
To learn more about the
risk factors associated with
children and drug abuse
and what you can do to
fight them, visit the NIDA

Getting back into the school swing


Three words have been
known to elicit very differ-
ent responses in house-
holds across the country
over the years depending
upon the audience: back to
school. While exhausted
parents no doubt greet
those words with much
excitement, trepidation is
most often the response of
children.
For children, the back-
to-school blues are associ-
ated with waking up ear-
ly, homework and struc-
ture, a far cry from the
sleep-in, stay-up-late,
carefree days of summer.
While readjusting to
school days can be tough
for parents and children
alike, there are ways to
make that inevitable re-
turn to school a little easi-
er on all parties.
Get a small head start.
Having children go to bed
earlier and wake up earli-
er in the days leading up
to the first day of school
will make it a lot easier to
do so once school starts.
Parents, too, should get in
on things, breaking from
their own sin:ummertime
t rounea 'e days betore
school starts.


For parents of children
who are new to a school or
new to school entirely,
make sure to learn bus
schedules or what traffic is
like if you're going to be
driving your child to
school every day. Estab-
lishing a morning routine
beforehand is important.
Also, at least for the first
day when things can be a
little too hectic, have your,
child prepare an outfit the
night before. Choosing
what to wear on the first
day of school can be a long
and drawn-out process for
some kids; it's better off
done the night before than
the morning of the first
day.
Many children have
anxiety about the first day
of school. That's especially
true of children who are
starting in a new school.
Parents should talk to
their kids beforehand, ask-
ing them what they're ex-
cited about and what they
might be anxious about. In
the days leading up to the
first day of school, talk to
children and let them
know hat they have to'
look' forward fo at their
new school. Focusing on


the positives as opposed
to any negatives will like-
ly make kids excited to go
to school and should make
the first day go a lot mrre
smoothly.
Getting kids to do
homework can be. one Iof
the more difficult back-to-
school adjustments to
make. Throughout sumin-
mer, children grow accus-
tomed to spending most of
their time at home pursu-
ing leisure, like watching
television, playing in the
yard or sitting by the pool.
Since during the first
month of school the
weather hasn't changed
dramatically, children can
find it hard to give up
such leisure time to do
homework instead. To
combat this problem and
make sure your kids start
off strong this school year,
give them some work be-
fore school starts, such as
reading a book or even
something like writing a
journal. Doing so when
the weather is nice will get
them acclimated to mak-
ing the same sacrifice once
the, work starts piling up
the firstew-Weeks of
school.

A day at the



springs


By Carlea J\im
UF/IFAS Master Gardener
volunteer

Our Florida springs are a refreshing place for
summer fun. With an average ear-round temper-
ature of 72 degrees, a leisurely dip in one of our
iiman% spriingi i, sure to cool you off on a hot sum-
mer day. North and Central Florida have the
largest network of springs anywhere else in the
world.
The water bubbling out of the springs looks
crystal clear and good enough to drink; but don't
be fooled by appearance. The water is sometimes
laden with excessive nutrients and toxins.
Springs can be contaminated by storm-water
runoff that carries pollutants like fertilizers, pesti-
cides, oils and antifreeze from our yards, parking
lots and roads. Contamination can also be caused
by dumping old batteries, appliances and trash
into sinkholes where leaching of pollutants af-
fects ground water that bubbles up through the
springs. Failing or improperly maintained septic
systems are also a source for nitrate, bacterial and


viral contaminants that end up in our ground wa-
ter which is where our drinking water comes
from.
For these reasons, as well as others, there is a
need to raise awareness and to educate our com-
munity about the unique geology of our Florida
springs. On Saturday, Aug. 4 a "Celebration of
Florida's Springs" was held at Poe Springs in
Alachua county. Suwannee County UF/IFAS Ex-
tension Agent Carolyn Saft and UF/IFAS Master
Gardener volunteer, Carolea Evans were there to
educate people on the Best Management Prac-
tices. farmers use on their farms. Residents were
made aware of how they can make their own
yards more "Florida Friendly" with the adoption
of the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods pro-
gram. A groundwater model was used to demon-
strate how pollutants move through the soils,
sinkholes and lakes into our groundwater. The
groundwater is then pumped for drinking water
or comes up through holes in the aquifer which
we know as springs. Saft and Evans handed out
information on fertilizing, irrigating, controlling
pests and mulching. Approximately 500 people


came to the event and most walked away with a
lot of useful information and possibly a new per-
spective of our spring's environment.
Many other agencies, non-profit organizations
and environmental groups were there to offer a
variety of advice on septic tanks, water conser-
vation, pollution prevention and wildlife that de-
pend on springs' ecosystems. A young boy about


10 years old told us how he had already picked
up a lot of trash around thespring that morning
and how he and his family conserve water. Many
other folks pledged to do their part for spring's
protection. What can you do in your own yard?
For more information, contact Carolyn Saft at
the Suwannee Counn' Extension Service, 386-
362-2771.

)rida % white shrimp is a popular delicacy
ed by all-chefs, locals and visitors 'alike.
s a sweet taste, firm bite and a distinctive,
ocean flavor that makes it any
shrimp lover's favorite. Al-
though classified as white, this
shrimp's shell is actually
green-gray or blue-gray in col-
or when raw but "pinks up"
when cooked. Brown shrimp,
named for its reddish-brown
shell, has a firmer meat tex-
ture and a stronger flavor than
the white shrimp due to higher
iodine content. It is often used
in spicy gumbos and re-
moulades where its flavor can
hold its own with the season-
ings. Shrimp is harvested
year-round off Florida's At-
lantic and Gulf coasts but the

white shrimp is October

Recognizing silent eye ailments
When it comes to their young children,
parents can often tell when a child is "
sick or not feeling his best. Be it
coughing, restlessness or crying,
typically one or two telltale signs arise
indicating that something's not right. .


However, in some cases signs aren't
that apparent. This is often problematic
when children are very young and aren't
able to relay problems to their parents
through language. This may be the case
with young children experiencing eye
problems. Vision problems aren't so
easy to detect. Which only emphasizes a
parent's need for diligence in looking for
certain indicators that a child could be
struggling with his vision.


Astigmatism: Astigmatism is
essentially a fancy word describing an
eye that is out of focus for both near and
distant vision. Focus is distorted because For some kids, eyeglasses arethe best way to combat common


the cornea, the clear dome covering the front of the eye, is
not perfectly round. Instead, the curvature is different in
one direction, creating a loss of focus in certain directions.
For example, a person with astigmatism might be able to
read a street sign horizontally, but would not be able to
read the same sign at equal distance if the sign was
vertical.

Headaches, eye strain and squinting are indicators of
astigmatism. In certain cases, astigmatism is not
problematic. However, when astigmatism is an issue,
children could begin to ignore the affected eye and rely
solely on the fully functioning eye. The degree of
astigmatism in infants often decreases in the first year or
two of life, so parents needn't worry too much. If detected
early, chances are children will be prescribed eyeglasses
that should alleviate the problem.

Blepharitis: Blepharitis refers to an inflammation of the
edge of the eyelid, resulting in a burning or stinging
sensation and possibly an itch. Parents often mistake
blepharitis with allergies because children typically rub
their eyes frequently and, in advanced cases, might have


redness on the internal edge of the eyelids.

Blepharitis typically proves very irritating to children
and, because rubbing their eyes is a common result, they
might develop, other inflammatory problems such as a stye.
If a child has blepharitis, gently clean the eyelids and
eyelashes to eliminate bacteria and debris. Also, apply a
warm washcloth to the eyes for 5 minutes, three times per
day. Heat will improve blood flow and help relieve the
inflammation.

Stye: A stye is a bacterial infection that occurs near the
edge of the eyelid. Styes are not common in adults because
adults are generally more inclined to clean their eyelids
and eyelashes and are therefore less susceptible to bacterial
infections. Children, however, are not always so diligent.
An external stye will infect an oil gland near the edge of
the eyelid, while an internal stye begins deep in the eyelid
and extends out to the edge. Antibiotics might be necessary
to treat a stye and, similar to treating blepharitis, parents
should apply a warm washclothwith soap specifically
designed for eyelids for 5 minutes 3 times per day.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
* Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions, as opposed to power normally supplied by SVEC. Transfer
switches isolate the circuits supplied by the generator and

Dear Classified Guys,
Every week when I pick up the news-
paper, I scan the employment sec-
tion. Not because I need work, but I
like to make sure I still have a good
job with competitive pay. When I see
one paying less, I feel better about
going to work the next day. During
my weekly scan, I've seen some pret-
ty strange ads. One was a flag com-
pany that needed someone to climb
flagpoles and install ornaments at
the top. Not quite the job for me
since I'm afraid of heights. Then last
week I saw an ad for someone to
consult as an "in-field mattress
inspector". I thought it was a joke
until I saw the salary. It's more than I
make. I figure I'm qualified since I
sleep on a mattress every night.
How hard can inspecting one be?
I'm considering answering this
ad, but before I apply, can ,'
you tell me what a mattress -
inspector really does? I'm ,.-2\!
hoping there are naps involved.

Carry: It would be nice to
have a job where napping is a require-
ment. I'm sure a lot of people would be
lining up to apply.
Cash: It's probably theonly inter-
view where you could show up with a


pillow and blanket.
Carry: Despite how the title sounds,
"mattress inspectors" don't get to lie
around all day. In fact, the job requires
quite a bit of travel.
Cash: In-field mattress inspectors are
more like investigators. Here's how it
works. Let's say you bought a mattress
from a major manufacturer. A few years
later, after several backaches, you think
your mattress is defective or sagging too
much. You contact the manufacturer
and request a replacement under the
warranty. The manufacturer hires an
independent company who then inspects
your mattress to determine if it is faulty.
Carry: That's where the mattress
inspector comes in. Their job is to travel


to your house and determine if the mat-
tress is defective. However, instead of
lying down and taking a nap, they make
a visual inspection of the mattress, box
spring and frame. They may also take
some basic.measurements and photo-
graphs as well.
Cash: The information is passed onto
the company to determine if the mat-
tress qualifies for replacement or repair
under the warranty. Regardless of the
outcome, the inspection company is
paid for their services.
Carry: If you like to travel and meet
with people, then it may be a good job
for you. But if your goal is to lie down
on the job, you probably need to look
elsewhere.


In&


zzz
Most of us never get enough sleep,
which can make for a long tiring day at
work. That growing number of weary
workers is gaining the attention of com-
panies as it impacts the bottom line.
Reduced productivity due to sleep dep-
rivation is estimated to cost businesses
about 18 billion dollars a year accord-
ing to Psychology Today. Considering.
the potential losses, more and more
companies are encouraging break times
or offering napping rooms for employ-
ees to refresh themselves. The only
thing better would be to have someone
else do your job while you're resting.
All Tucked In
"Sleep tight" is one of those phrases
many parents use when they tuck their
children into bed for the evening. Yet
it's origin is believed to date back far
beyond our grandparents generation.
Back in the 16th and 17th centuries, a
mattress was typically made from straw
or down. It was then placed on a lattice
of ropes suspended from a wood frame.
The ropes often required regular tight-
eniing, which in turn created the phrase
"sleep tight".

The Softer Side
Thereiai'l orld of selling mattress-,
es can be \ er' competition e. The owner
of the store here I %%ork has a policy
that anm matr-ess can be returned '% ith-
in 20 days for a full refund: To behon-
est, most people ne\er ha\e a problem.
Last week, however, I received one of
those rare calls for a return.
Awoman named Rhonda told me,
that she loved the bedroom set she,
bought, but Henr. couldn't stand the
soft mattress. "He's been restless
e\ery night." she complained. "We' e
tried s itching sides and flipping the
mattress. but he finally gave up and
slet on the floor."
"That's.hornble." I replied. "Does
your husband hbae a bad back1"
"Oh. Henr)'s not m:, husband," she
said. "He's mi basset hound!"

$50,000 awaits man


--but where is he?


By Adam H. Beasley
The Miami Herald (MCT)
Randy Chapman is oft-ar-
rested, possibly homeless and
-- court records show -- has a
habit of showing up drunk on
public property.
He's also in line for a small
fortune. Somebody needs to
tell him.
Chapman, 51, is due at
least $50,000 left to him by
aunt Pearl Hauenstein, who
died in 2000, his family said.
If Chapman doesn't claim the
money in the next two years,
it goes to the state of Indiana.
Mae Lou Howard figures
her cousin Chapman needs it
more. The problem is that she
can't find him.
The family hasn't heard
from him in 19 years.
After a difficult childhood,
he moved at 17 to Kentucky,
then to South Florida in the
late 1970s. He has been ar-
rested seven times since,1981
-- including once two weeks
ago -- and gives police a dif-
ferent address nearly every
time. Howard fears he has no
address at all.
"I would-hate to think that,
his future was mine, that I
had no hope, no dreams, no
future," Howard said from
Mitchell, Ind. ""Whatever he
gets today might be his last
meal:"'
And so, for the second time
in two decades, the search is
on for Chapman.
Back in the late 1980s,


Chapman's family made a
push to find him. Chapman's
brother Steve had leukemia
and needed a bone marrow
transplant. They thought
Randy might be a match.
HEADLINE NEWS
The family located Chap-
man in South Florida. But
Chapman wanted $,1,000 to
take the test, a demand that
spawned a memorable Indi-
anapolis Star headline --
Randy Chapman earns his
blood money -` as well as
some scornful coverage in
the National Enquirer (I can't
believe my own brother is
being so cold, blared the
headline).
In the end, the test showed
he wasn't a suitable match..
That's the last time anyone
back home has heard from
him.
Now, Howard is trying
again, with the help of a fam-
ily friend, private ihvestiga-
tor Lanny Williams.
"He doesn't-want to be
found," Williams said. "She
felt sorry for him in the past,.
and there wasn't anything the
family could do for him.
Now they can."
ARREST RECORD,
It appears the only indeli-
ble mark Chapman has made
in South Florida has been on
a police blotter. There's a
high likelihood he's alive,
considering he was arrested
just two weeks ago on,
charges he trespassed at a


city of Miami school.
He has given the same ad-
dress to police after the last
several arrests but has .alter-
nated his hometown between
Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
The Fort Lauderdale ad-
dress Chapman, gives is an
apartment complex called
Community Acres, but man-
ager Nancy Vickas says no
one by that name has lived
there at least in the past 18
years. The Miami version
does not exist on the map.
Howard fears her cousin's
true home is on the streets.
And she knows $50,000 can
quickly be misspent.
"It does worry me," she
said. "If it isn't stolen from
him, it might be wasted. But
he deserves a life. He hasn't
had anything up to now."

Erika Beras and Monika Z.
Leal contributed to this re-
port.

Man saves driver


in sinking car


By Jose Iglesias, Gina Pace
The Miami Herald
(MCT)
As soon as he saw the Nis-
san sedan veer off the Turn-
pike and into a canal Thurs-
day night, 'Jose Nishijima's
instincts kicked in.
He jerked his car to a stop
on the highway's shoulder,
jumped out and leapt into the
cold, muddy water. The Nis-
san was sinking fast, hardly
visible from the surface. All
he could hear was a woman
screaming for help.
Nishijima tried breaking
the driver's window with a,
rock, but that didn't work. He
yelled for the woman inside
to roll down her window.
When' she did, the car.
plunged even farther into the
12-foot deep canal.
"I reached in and grabbed
whatever I could' .hair,-
hands, anything," 14ishijima-
said in Spanish from his
Southwest Miami-Dade
home late Thursday.
He pulled the woman out
through her w indow open-
ing, and other passersby
helped drag her to the canal
bank. They kept her warm
and alert until paramedics ar-
rived.,
"When I got there, Jose
had tears' in his e3es," said
i Miami-Dade fire rescue Lt.
Eddy Ballester. "All I could
do w as give him a hug and
tell him he saved' that
woman's life."


The woman, whose name
was not released but was said
to be in her 40s, was taken to
Kendall Regional Medical
Center, where she was recov-
ering from scrapes and bruis-
es, Ballester said.
The woman was driving
southbound on Florida's
Turnpike just before 7 p.m.
when her vehicle was hift
from behind, Ballester said.
It slid down the embankment
and into .a canal near the
Southwest Eighth Street exit.
It is unknown if the other dri-
ver was cited in the accident.
After Nishijima pulled her
to safety and realized no one,
else was trapped in the car,
he told the woman she would
be all right. He did not take'
credit for the rescue.
"I told her God had saved
her," Nishijima said.
Nishijima, 39, was on his
way home from his ware-
house job with his 30-year-
old future stepson and anoth-
er man when he saw the car
go off the road.
THE RESCUE
He pulled off his blue polo
shirt, kicked off his shoes
and dropped his cellphone to,
the ground before jumping
in. He doesn't remember
what the water felt like.
"I didn't feel anything," he
said. "I just wanted to get as
many people out as I could."'
But Ballester said the wa-
ter, was pitch black and cold -
and filled with weeds and


muck.
Miami-Dade rescue divers
searched the submerged car
for other victims, but the
woman was the only one
who had been inside.
The effort left Nishijima
exhausted, he said. As res-
cuers arrived, Nishijima was
resting on the canal bank
while his son and others
tended to the woman.
"The man is a hero,"
Ballester said. "A true Good
Samaritan."
Nishijima moved to South
Florida in March after about
seven years in New Jersey.
He's set to marry his fiancee
next Friday.
It wasn't the first' time
Nishijima has been a hero in
the water.
'GOD IS WITH ME'
About eight years ago, he
saved a boy from drowning
off the beach in his native
Peru. More recently, he
brought his fiancee to safety
after a boat they were in cap-
sized in Pennsylvania.
After Thursday's incident,
Nishijima said he was re-
lieved to know the woman
would be all right.
Medics 'had to bandage
Nishijima's hand, which he
injured trying to break the
car's window. He didn't mind
the injury, and he said he
wouldn't hesitate to do it
again.
"I never think something
like this is going to happen,"
he said. "But I believe God is
with me.".
