Body found in field


Identified as
Valdosta man
By Melody Lee, Manager
A partially decomposed body of a
black male has been identified as An-
thony Paul Henry of Valdosta, Ga., ac-
cording to Hamilton County Sheriff
Harrell Reid.
A farmer found the body in a field,
located between CR 146 and 1-75, while


he was fertilizing it on Wednesday,
Sept. 6, Sheriff Reid said. Investigators
from the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) said the man had
been dead at least a week and probably
closer to two weeks, according to Sher-
iff Reid., .
After the Sheriff's Office received a
report from the Valdosta Police Depart-
ment (VPD) about a missing black
male, they matched a palm print from
the body to a print from the missing
man. The man was positively identified


as Anthony Paul Henry, age 36, with a
last know address of 1620 N Ashley St.
in Valdosta, according to Sheriff Reid.
"I can't give out specifics, but it is def-
initely a homicide," Sheriff Reid said.
The case is still under investigation by
the Hamilton County Shenff'-. Office,
FDLE and VPD.
Anyone who has
i 'CMw O.should

No, charges


filed in fatal


shooting
By Melody Lee, Manager
A grand jury did not find sufficient evi-
'dence to file criminal charges against John.
R. Black, age 48, of Jasper, according to
Sheriff Harrell Reid. Black was inv olved in
the fatal shooting of his brother, David L.
Black, age 47 of Jasper, on March 20.
John Black also suffered non-life threat-
ening injuries in the incident. The shooting
occurred at David Black's residence on NW
25th Dr., off US 129 north of Jasper.

According to Buescher,
the parks will not close,
even for a day, during the
process, and the employ-
ees and guests will be tak-
en care of. "There is no
risk that these parks will
close. They are worth a lot
of money running, but
worth very little in
pieces," referring to ru-
mors that the parks will
be purchased; closed and
the rides, animals, etc.,
sold off to other entities.
Two entities have al-
ready been identified as
being interested in pur-
chasing each park, he
said. "The agreement es-
tablishes a minimum
floor, a minimal amount
that somebody that is in-
terested in buying a park
would have to pay."
The minimum price for
Wild Adventures has
been set at $35,850,000,
and $17,400,000 for Cy-
press Gardens. The three
consecutive hurricanes
that wreaked havoc on -
Cypress Gardens in 2004
were the catalysts that
started the company
down the bankruptcy
path. The insurance claim
remains unresolved and is
still in litigation.
The hurricanes hit
shortly after APG ac-
quired Cypress Gardens,
the 70-year-old attraction
in central Florida, while
they were in the midst of
updating and adding at-
tractions to save the
closed park. APG bor-
rowed money from Falcon


Partners, LP., in addition
to General Electric Capital
Corporation, and filed for
reorganization under
Chapter 11 in September
2006 in order to give the
company time to settle the
insurance claims. The
claims are not settled, and
Falcon has blocked sever-
al attempts by buyers to
purchase the park. The
sale on Sept. 25 was or-
dered by the court to re-
solve the ongoing issues,
and Buescher said the
procedure is rigidly deter-
mined.by law, with no,
one able to block a sale.
Potential buyers must
be pre-qualified to attend
the auction sale, and must
bring cash or a cashier's
check for 10 percent of the
minimum with them. For
Wild Adventures, that
equates to $3.5 million
and for Cypress Gardens,
$1.7 million. Buescher
said they also must have
demonstrated the ability
to pay the balance of the
funds by Oct. 8. "No more
than a handful will show
up. This is a real straight-
forward process created
as part of the bankruptcy
code to allow a clean
transaction."
The two potential buy-
ers have first right to bid,
and then can counter an-
other offer made. "It's an
official process to make
certain that we get the _
highest possible price."
Buescher is both a
shareholder in the group,
along with approximately
40 other individuals and
entities, and a creditor,


and he is waiting along
with everyone else to see
what happens as a result
of the sale.
"There are still many
options for the company. I
can't tell you for certain
what's going to happen,
but I expect to have new
financial backers. I would
like to still be involved in
the company, but all is to
be determined.
"My job is to take care
of our guests," he said.
"We are managing
through the process, and
are looking forward to the
day that both of these
parks emerge from these
clouds, which will happen
in early October, one way
or another. Both parks
have an extremely bright
future."
Buescher said it's busi-
ness as usual and he ex-
pects both Wild Adven-
tures and Cypress Gar-
dens to be around for sev-
eral more generations to
enjoy.
Among those listed as
creditors in the notice
mailed Thursday are the
Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation Trust, David
and Jane Motley, First
State Bank and Trust, the
Valdosta-Lowndes Air-
port Authority, Veolia,
Kent and Dawn Buescher,
Lowndes County Tax
Commissioner, the State
of Florida, Georgia De-
partment of Revenue and.

Company.

faced the crowd was Town
Clerk Sharron Wethering-
ton, who doesn't have to

speak very often during a
meeting.
Lana Wisenbaker, former
spokesperson for the Con-
cerned Citizens For the Bet-,
terment of Jennings, said
she asked Mayor Charles
Barrett at a previous meet-
ing to turn the table
around so the council
members would face the
audience, but he refused.
"When I asked him for a
reason, he told me, 'I don't
have to (move the table),'"
said Wisenbaker. '!We want
the council members to
talk to us not to each other
and we don't want to talk
to their backs. It is:clear
and obvious the concerns
of the citizens do not mat-


ter to the council."
Doug Lang, current
spokesperson for the Con-
cerned Citizens, requested
the council appoint a board
to review the charter and
ordinances for revision and
updating. Lang suggested
the board should consist of
two business people, htwo
.ordinary citizens and two
council members, who
would present their recom-
mendations to 'the council.
"The Town of Jennings
has a problem with apa-
thy," Lang said. "The char-
ter was established in 1981:
and a lot of things should
be addressed. A review
board would make a good-
first step toward making
changes.",
Mayor Barrett said the
council would talk to the
town attorney, who was
not present, and the issue


was tabled until the next
meeting.
Horace .Bates, objected to
the idea of a board, using
profanity. Mayor Barrett
warned Bates if he used
profanity again, he would.
have to leave. Several min-
utes later, Bates used pro-
fanity again.
Mayor Barrett did not
tellBates to leave the meet-
ing until the other audience
members complained.
Then he said, "I'm above
this yot0 want to make
this a circus. This is not a ,,
place for arguing."
. Other issues addressed at
the meeting included the
possibility of applying for a
grant for park improve-
ments, a sign on US 41 for .
the businesses located on
Hamilton Avenue, and rust
in the water caused by old
pipes.

United Way celebrates 40th anniversary tonight


Submitted
Thursday, Sept. 13, Unit-
ed Way of Suwannee Valley
will celebrate its 40th an-
niversary as it kicks off its
40th annual community
fundraising campaign. The
event will be conducted at
Lake City Community Col-
lege Pine Square, an out-
door pavilion, which lends
an appropriate atmosphere
for the family-friendly cele-
bration.
"United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley is all about fami-
lies," said John Kasak, pres-
ident of the United Way of
Suwannee Valley Board of
Directors. "Our United Way
community impact initia-
tives and affiliated agencies
focus on services to resi-
dents ranging from our
youngest citizens to our se-
niors. And all are invited
and encouraged to join our
community in celebrating
our local United Way and in
supporting our annual com-
munity fundraising cam-
paign."
The local United Way was
incorporated Oct. 9,
1968. Local attorney S.
Austin Peele served as the
1968-1969 president during
the first year when the cam-
paign team set a goal just
short of $40,000 and raised
slightly more than
$29,000. The list of past pres-
idents and former campaign
chairs mirrors the list any
long-time resident would
recognize as community
leaders. Each received a spe-
cial letter of invitation to the
40th birthday celebration. In'
cases where past leaders are
now deceased, family mem-
bers received these letters of
invitation.
"Our local United Way
has progressed over these
past 40 years from a com-
pletely volunteer run orga-
nization providing a com-
munity-wide fundraising


campaign on behalf of the
affiliated agencies to a pro-
fessionally staffed commu-
nity impact organization,
which looks beyond the im-
mediate need of supporting
funding of community hu-
man service agencies to ad-
dressing root causes of com-
munity needs," said another
local attorney, Tom Brown,
who was a signer of the lo-
cal United Ways articles of
incorporation in 1968 and
remains an active volun-
teer. "We sincerely hope
many of our community
members who have con-
tributed to the success of
our United Way will join in
our 40th anniversary cele-
bration."
Brown served as presi-
dent of United Way six one-
year terms between 1974
and 1990. He currently
serves as chair of the Plan-
ning Committee, an Execu-
tive Committee level posi-
tion on the Board of Direc-
tors. Due to Brown's long-
standing commitment of
service to the community
through United Way, he
wa's honored with a lifetime
board membership. He will
be among the founding fa-
thers featured on a video to
be shown at the campaign
kick-off and birthday cele-
bration.
The video, produced by
Lake City Community Col-
lege and sponsored by PCS
Phosphate White Springs,
provides glimpses into the
history of our local United
Way from the perspective, of
the first agency director,
Phyllis Whitaker; and the
first full-time executive di-
rector, Earline Parker. Both
Peele and Brown, along
with past presidents Ozell
Graham, Susan Summers
and Vern and Maureen
Lloyd, cite in the video their
views on the history of our
United Way, its role in the


Un-fted


homeless coalition contin-
ues as does its Success By 6
early childhood initiative,
which had to be sidelined
until the completion of the
hurricane recovery efforts.
Current initiatives also in-
clude the cultivation of the
Suwannee Valley Commu-
nity Organization Active in
Disaster (COAD), transition
of the Suwannee Valley
Long Term Recovery Com-
mittee to a long-term recov-
ery organization and efforts
to implement 2-1-1 informa-
tion and referral
services. Most recently,
United Way of Suwannee


Valley, after a demonstra-
tion of community stake-
holder support, embarked
on developing a volunteer
center in support of commu-
nity agencies as well as
school and library programs
utilizing volunteers by suc-
cessfully applying for an
Americorp*VISTA position
through Volunteer Florida,
The Governors Commission
on Volunteerism.

vice. SITEL is sponsoring

Suwannee County resi-
dent Joe Flanagan, the 2007-
08 president of United Way
of Suwannee Valley, noted
the name was changed in
1992 to formally include
Suwannee and Hamilton
counties in the local United
Way service area. "Most of
our United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley affiliated agen-
.cies provide services to resi-
dents of all three counties,"
said Flanagan. "Only a few
are county specific, such as
the Suwannee County Po-
lice Athletic League, the
Hamilton County Council
on Aging or Columbia,
County Senior Services. All
of the community impact
initiatives address needs of,
the tri-county area."
.The Communications
Committee, chaired by vol-
unteer Mike McKee, built
on the national United Way
theme of "what matters" to
establish a local theme of
"Celebrate 'what matters'"
for the birthday celebration
and 2007-08 kick-off
event. "We will celebrate
how our United Way has
impacted what matters in
our community," said McK-
ee.
In addition to cofiducting
the annual community
fundraising campaign,
which the birthday celebra-
tion kicks off, the local Unit-
ed Way is the organization
that brought the Communi-
ty Foundation and the Food
Bank of Suwannee Valley to
the community. Volunteers,
with staff leadership from
United Way, developed the
Suwannee Valley Long
Term Recovery Committee
to assist at-risk residents in
their recovery from the 2004
hurricanes by providing
home repairs or mobile
home replacements utiliz-
ing grant funds secured by
United Way. United Way's

"I don't feel no ways
tired. I come too far from
where I started from. No-
body told me that the road
would be easy. I don't be-
lieve He brought me this
far," drawled presidential
aspirant Hillary Clinton,
mimicking black voice to a
black audience, at the First
Baptist Church of Selma,
Ala. I'm wondering if Mrs.
Clinton visits an Indian
reservation she might cozy
up to them saying, "How!


Me not tired. Me come
heap long way. Road
mighty rough. Sky Spirit

seeking the Asian vote she
might say, "I no wray tired.
Come too far I started
flum. Road berry clocked.
Number one Dragon King
take me far."
The occasion of Mrs.
Clinton's speech was the

Insulting blacks


rights marchers were at-
tacked by police with billy
clubs, cattle prods and tear
gas, one of the high points
in the black civil rights
struggle. Commemorating
a key point in American
history is one thing, but a
white person mimicking
black dialect is demeaning
and insulting. And, if it
buys her votes from those
in attendance, not much
flattering can be said about
them.
Mrs. Clinton later ex-
plained her drawl, around
black audiences, to a meet-
ing of the National Associ-
ation of Black Journalists,
"I lived all those years in
Arkansas, and, you know,
I'm in this interracial mar-
riage." The interracial mar-
riage bit has to do with the
frequent reference to for-
mer, President Clinton, by
thed Congressional Black
Caucus and others, as the
"first black president."
Mrs. Clinton is not alone
in demeaning talk to black
people; she's in good com-
pany with Jesse Jackson
and Al Sharpton, who talk
of "going from the out-
house to the White House"
and "from disgrace to
amazing grace" and other
such nonsense. Neither
Clinton nor Revs. Sharpton
and Jackson address white
audiences in that manner.
Before' a predominantly
black audience, during his
2004 presidential bid, Sen.
John Kerry said, in refer-
ence to so many blacks in
prison, "That's unaccept-
able, but it's not their
fault." I doubt whether
Kerry would have told a
white audience that jailed
white people were fault-
less. Kerry probably holds
whites responsible for their


criminal behavior..
In 2004, NAACP Presi-
dent Kweisi Mfume said of
President 'George Bush,
"We have a president that's
prepared to take us back to
the days of Jim Crow segre-
gation and dominance."
During the 2000 presiden-
tial campaign, Rev. Jesse
Jackson warned black au-
diences by telling them
that a Bush win would turn
the civil rights clock back
to the days of Jim Crow.
Now that Bush's two-term
presidency is near its end,
why wouldn't someone
ask Jesse and Kweisi about
the accuracy of their pre-
dictions?
Suppose some dema-
gogue in 2000 told Jewish
Americans that a Bush
presidency would mean
concentration camps, or
told Japanese-Americans
that his presidency would
mean internment? Do you
think such pronounce-
ments would have been
welcomed and applauded?
I'm sure that had someone
made such a stupid predic-
tion to Jewish and Japan-
ese-Americans, they would
have had ridicule and
scorn heaped upon them.
What does it say about
blacks who can be taken in
by pandering, alarmist
nonsense from both whites
and blacks as a means to
get their votes? As a black
man, I don't find the most
obvious answer very flat-
tering.

NFCC ranked sixth in country


Submitted
It's not often that North
Florida Community Col-
lege finds itself in the na-
tional spotlight. However,
a new ranking of commu-
nity colleges by The Wash-
ington Monthly magazine
released Aug. 21, thrust
the small, rural institution
right up there as sixth
among 30 of the top com-
munity colleges in the
country.
The report, "America's
Best Community Col-
leges," by Kevin Carey is
posted at www.washing-
tonmonthly.com/feat-tres.
Carey is the research and
policy manager at Educa-
tion Sector, an indepen-
dent think tank.
Four other community
colleges from the Sunshine
state also made the list:
Lake City Coinmunity Col-
lege (12th), Chipola Col-
lege (18th) in Marianna,
Valencia College (23rd) in
Orlando and Florida Com-
munity College at Jack-,
sonville (25th). :
President Morris G.
Steen Jr. said; "While it is
nice to receive the recogni- .
tion of a number six na-
tional ranking of commu-
nity colleges by The Wash-
ington Monthly, the im-
portant issue is that our
students receive a very
good education during
their tenure at NFCC. Our
high retention and gradua-
tion rates coupled with the.
success of our students at
Florida's state universities
are strong testimony to


NFCC's high quality." ,
The magazine's ranking
relies heavily on data from
the 'Community College
Survey of Student Engage-
ment or CCSSE (85 per-
cent) and graduation rates
(15 percent). In a recerit re-
lease of CCSSE 2007 sur-
vey results, NFCC again
demonstrated a high level
of student satisfaction, par-
ticularly in areas of stu-
dent/ faculty interaction
and support for learners.
CCSSE data are available
online at www.CCSSE.org.
Findings from 2005-2006
were the basis of the Wash-
ington Monthly's selection
method.
Steen said, "We are de-
lighted that NFCC did so
well on the Community
College. Survey of Student
Engagement, scoring
above the national mean in
almost every category."
Doug Brown, dean of the
Educator Preparation In-
stitute, recruitment, reten-
tion and grants at NFCC,
said, "While NFCC. is
pleased to fare so well ii
comparison .with other in-
stitutions, it recognizes
that rankings are highly
subjective and frequently
do not, take into' account
the widely disparate mis-
sions of community col-
leges."
Still and all, NFCC is
basking in the spotlight.
As the Washington Month-
ly article- noted, "Great
teaching,can happen any-
where." It happens every
day at NFCC.

Counselor's Corner


by: Paula G. Williams
Hamilton High is ending
the third week of this
school year and thanks to
all of the parents who have
eagerly come out to meet
with teachers and/or me. I
encourage parents to con-
tinue to partner with and
work with the school. I
have met with or talked to
so many of you already
and extend an open invita-
.tion to my other middle
school parents to come on
out and allow your Guid-
ance Office *to work for
you. I look forward to see-
ing all of you!
Class dues for seventh
and eighth graders are $4.
Be sure your child takes
care of this with Mrs. Wig-
gins in the Media Center.
Funds from class dues are
used for homecoming ac-
tivities / supplies.
Please note that. the
homecoming date has been
changed to Oct. 12. This
will be a short week since
Monday, Oct. 8, is the
Columbus Day holiday.
It would be so good if
you would plan for your
child to take part in the
Community Celebration
that will be held on Satur-
day, Oct. 13, at the Buddy
Parker Recreational Park
on Martin Luther King Dri-
ve. This is a county-ride
. outreach to provide super-
vised activities for all chil-
dren of Hamilton County.
There will be music,


games, food, and 3 on 3
basketball tournaments for
cash prizes. This communi-
ty celebration is being
jointly sponsored by Trini-
ty Hospital, A People Unit-
ed and the City of Jasper. A
special thank you in ad-
vance is going out to them
for their efforts in bridging
the gap between school
and community.
I visited seventh and'
eighth grade classrooms to
share information regard-
ing the Character Educa-
tion Program and specifi-
cally the character key for
the month of August RE-
SPECT willingness to
show .consideration or ap-
preciation; held in high es-
teem. Students were cau-
tioned to remember the
character key and note acts
of respect being shown
around the school for class
discussion. Many students
received bonus points in
class for their recognition
of some of the .concepts
centered around respect.
The character key for the
month of September is
HONESTY a sense of hon-
or, truthfulness, integrity
and sincerity. Get involved
by discussing this concept
with your child as we will,
do at the school. Youth
groups and ministries are
encouraged to do the same.
Did you know that one of
the requirements of .Physi-
cal Education is that the
students dress out daily?


Each student began the
school year with 110
points. They can have three
points deducted daily for
not dressing out (they have
to change from the clothes
they wear to school) and
they can have two points
deducted daily for not par-
ticipating, The shorts and
shirt must be the colors
red, .black, white or gray.
Please be sure your child is
meeting thege require-
ments daily. If you would
like to check on your child,
please phone 792-6540 for
Coaches P. Murphy, S.
Murphy, Harrell, Puckett
or Bonds or you may con-
tact me.
Mr. Lumpkin, Mr. Ramp-
ley and Ms. Burkett have
made themselves available
from 8:15 a.m. until 8:50
a.m. each morning (provid-
ing there is not staff meet-
ing, etc.) for tutoring. Ask
your child if these persons
are their teachers. If so, I
am pleading with you to,
take advantage of the op-
portunity. Some of our stu-
dents need extra help and
it. is available to them.
Now, there is only one
choice, have your child re-
port to one of these rooms
at 8:15 a.m. I check the
rooms and I am saddened
and disappointed because
they are always empty and
I know my middle school
children need the help. If
you don't know your
child's teachers, call me.


School Clubs met for the
first time last week. Stu-
dents seemed very interest-
ed in Sigma Delta, SWAT
and FFA. If you would like
more information, call Mrs.
Jones, Ms. Taylor or Mr.
Wynn at 792-6540.
Dr. Brenda Caldwell pre-
sented the "Dream Reach-
er" assembly last Friday.
The students and staff
were uplifted and empow-
ered as she delivered a
powerful, soul searching
message. "Be a dream
builder and. no.t a, dream
'bu-ter" e echoed though out
the auditorium as students
listened attentively. The
participation and the inter-
est levels were high.
We all have a "story" and
she brought some real is-
sues out in a real way,
touching students who re-
ally needed that "extra."
Some nodded their affir-'
mation, some raised their
hands, some had tears but
all could relate to where
Dr. B. was coming from.
We could "feel" her as the
teenagers today would say
and lives will be changed.
We thank Officer Emily
Lumpkin, Grace McDon-
ald, the Hamilton County
Alcohol and Other Drug
Prevention Coalition and
others who made this pos-
sible for our students. The
only other thing to be said
about this is simply, "you
ought to have been there."
Life Skills Training be-


gan in seventh grade this
week and will continue,
through the end of the
school year, Each 'seventh
grader will be involved on
Monday for 15 weeks dur-
ing their Science class. The
training involves: Self Im-
age and Self Improvement,
Making Decisions, Smok-
ing, Alcohol: Myths and
Realities, Violence and the
Media, Coping with Anxi-
ety, Communication Skills,


Social Skills, Assertiveness
and Resolving Conflicts.
Come by room #127 at
Hamilton County High
School if I can be. of assis-
tance to you or please don't
hesitate to call me at 792-
6540 or email me at
Williams_p2@fim.edu.

dren in an awesome way
every day!

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Sunday, Sept. 2, was a
very special day at First
Presbyterian Church,
Jasper. The Rev. Dr. Doug


Tick-borne Lyme dis-
ease continues to expand
across North America. In
the eastern and upper
midwestern United States,
Lyme disease is transmit-
ted most often by the
black-legged tick com-
monly called the deer tick.
West of the Rockies, the
western black-legged tick
carries the disease.
An extended period of
feeding usually 36 to 48
hours is necessary for
ticks to transmit the dis-
ease. Therefore, checking
for ticks regularly when
spending time outdoors is
the first line of defense.
But because of their tiny
size, it is entirely possible
to carry a tick on the body
for days without ever
knowing. Ticks are most
likely to transmit Lyme
disease to humans when
they are nymphs, only
slightly bigger than the
period at the end of this
sentence.
The symptoms of Lyme
disease are not the same in
every person. In many
cases, a red rash appears
in either a ringlike pattern
or as a red bull's eye spot
around or near the bite
anywhere from several
days to several weeks af-
ter the person contracts
the disease from an infect-
ed tick. The rash seldom
causes pain or itching, and
usually.persists for three
to five weeks. On dark-
skinned people, the rash


K


Hilliard' administered the
Sacrament of Baptism to
Gracie Young France and
Addison Michelle Strum-


may appear as a dark,
bruiselike ring and often is
hard to notice.
Other early signs of in-
fection resemble the flu
and can include chills,
fever, joint pain and fa-
tigue accompanied by
swollen lyhnph nodes
nearest the bite. Symp-
toms may go into remis-
sion, but if it is Lyme dis-
ease, it most likely won't
go away without treat-
ment. Several antibiotics
are highly effective, but if
the disease is not. treated
promptly, the bacteria will
move into other parts of
the body. Late-stage Lyme
disease is debilitating,
causing severe arthritis,
mental confusion, numb-
ness of the arms and legs,
and heart problems such
as arrhythmia. It is some-
times difficult to treat. .
Raking leaves helps re-
duce tick populations. If
raking is impractical, it's
better to maintain broad
buffer zones that are
mowed regularly, and to
dress defensively.
Unfortunately, ticks
don't have many natural
predators of the domestic
variety, but some people
report that flocks of poul-
try, especially guinea
fowl, have put big dents in
tick populations, which
echoes centuries-old folk
wisdom.
If venturing into territo-
ry where there are ticks,
"dress like a geek." That


lauf. Gracie and Addison
are the granddaughters of
the Rev. Dr. Hilliard and
Ann Hilliard, daughters of
the Hilliard's twin daugh-
ters.
Gracie France, nine
months old, was born
Nov. 30, 2006, to Gary and
Aimee France of Wood-


means wearing long pants
with the cuffs tucked into
socks, and light-colored
clothing that makes it eas-
ier to spot ticks.
When coming indoors
after outside activities,
give clothes a hot 10-
minute spin in a clothes
dryer to kill any ticks that
might be hiding in the
folds or seams. Take a hot,
soapy bath, and check
thoroughly for tiny for-
eign dark dots.
An herbal or a DEET,-
based repellent can be ap-
plied to exposed skin por
clothes. Use DEET spar-
ingly, especially on chil-
dren. It is advised not
spraying permethrin on
clothes above the waist, to
avoid breathing fumes
that body heat may trig-
ger.
If a tick is attached, re-
move it carefully using
fine-tipped tweezers or
forceps. Then wipe the
bite with an antiseptic, cir-
cle it with a permanent
marker, and wash hands
and tweezers. Check the
bite location every few
days for a rash or other
unusual inflammation,
and promptly seek med-
ical attention if any symp-
toms of Lyme disease. The
disease is usually curable'
when treated in its early.
stages.

stock, Ga. Paternal grand-
parents live in Lake Ka-
trine, New York. Addison
Strumlauf, four months
old, was born May 4, to
Shawn and Jolene Strum-
lauf of St. Augustine. Pa-
ternal grandparents live in
Jacksonville. Ann Hilliard
served as sponsor, and
Linda Taylor represented
the Session in giving the
charge to the congrega-
tion.
It was quite a shock to go
by S&S a week ago on Sat-
urday morning, glance
across the street and say,
"What happened?" To see
the devastation in a place
where Badcock used to be.
I' did not even hear any
sirens or anything; usually
the noises from there
would awaken me, guess I
was just tired. Anytime
there is such a fire, many
are affected by it. Our
thoughts and prayers go
out to those who suffered
loss due to the fire.
Fire Chief Trinder said
they were unable to hold
the "Boots" for Jerry's Kids
as our fire fighters were
exhausted. They are so
faithful and work so hard;
remember to thank them
when you have any con-
tact with them, or make a
special effort to do so.
The Jasper Woman's
Club will start off the new
Club year on Friday at
noon.
Early one morning last
week, I turned on the tele-


vision, not really to watch
or looking for anything, I
saw a large picture of Rev.
Colbert and Joyce Croft,
but missed the reason for
this. Later I talked with
Joyce and learned they had
their annual Labor Day
Service at the Civic Center
in Valdosta. This is the
19th year for this celebra-
tion. Joyce said the crowd
was overflowing; that
would be a big crowd in
that facility. She said
Channel 4 and 6 were
there; she missed the TV
showing, did not realize it
was being televised at that
time,
Hamilton County was
well represented as shortly
thereafter who should I see
but Miss Florida, Kylie
Williams? I did not get to
see what she was promot-
ing, but it suddenly
dawned on me that we
might be seeing more of
"our" beautiful young
lady in just this manner,
representing the entire
State of Florida. Kylie, you
are really making us proud
and you make such a bean-
tiful appearance, we know
that your inner beauty
shows through whenever
you appear and wherever
you are, as well as your
natural beauty. Thank you
for being you, you have
worked hard for your ac-
complishments; we thank
you and your family for al-
lowing us to be a part of
your joy. We will be fol-


lowing you all the way to
Miss America and will
support you when you ar-
rive. Our thoughts and our
love will be with you,
praying for you and wish-
ing you the very best.
For those of you who
"enjoyed" my celebration,
thank you for being a part
of it. I will try to thank
each of you separately, but
will write more next week;
hope you do not get tired
of hearing about it from
me, it was just so special. I
do want to thank Melody
and Candice for "digging"
through the files for some
of the pictures; only some-
one involved in newspa-
per' work can know how
much effort it took for
them to put that all togeth-
er. Thank you for your pa-
tience and help in making
this a time of joy.
You will be hearing
more about my celebration
weekend;' be patient with
me, it was awesome. Now,
I know that there are many
things going on in your
life, please' tell me about
them. I am sorry I missed
the anniversary celebra-
tion for Lonnie and Lucille
Smith; I want to hear about
it, and it is my understand-
ing that Lonnie is having
some health problems, we
want to keep them in our
prayers.
I want to hear from you!

White Springs


1 j By Johnny Bullard W


Pungent spicy fragrances
of cinnamon, nutmeg, and
apples remind me of the
fall also the smell of burn-
ing leaves reminds me of
the fall season. When Janet
Moses had her shop in
White Springs, it always
had the most delightful fra-
grance during the fall sea-
son. Fall is my very favorite
season of the entire year,
and it's just around the cor-
ner. September 21 is the
first official day of autumn,
but don't get in the mood
of wearing your fall
sweaters just yet we've a
"ways to go" before we
bring those out.
The Town of White
Springs and the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park Citizens Support
Organization, as well as the
Town of White Springs
Special Events Committee,
hosted a "Welcome to
White Springs" reception
honoring Ken Brookins,
newly appointed police
chief for the Town of White
Springs.
The reception was held
on Thursday, Sept. 6, be-
ginning at 5:30 p.m. at the
State of Florida's Nature
and Heritage Tourism Cen-
ter. The event was well at-
tended. We welcome Chief
Brookins and we wish him
all the best for the future.
We also welcome Mr.
and Mrs. Mike Thomas to
White Springs. The couple
purchased the historic bun-
galow between Walter and
Merri McKenzie and the
White Springs Bed and
Breakfast. We .are grateful
they are restoring one of
the town's historic resi-
dences.


Happy belated birthday
wishes go out to my neigh-
bor, Jim Tompkins. We
wish Jim many more hap-
py birthdays!
The Hamilton County
Trojans lost a hard fought
ball game on Friday, Sept.
7, to Union County High
School. The Trojans played
a good game, and we wish
our Hamilton County Tro-
jans all the best for a safe
and successful season!
The "Come to the River"
event held at the Foster
Center on Saturday, Sept.
8, was well coordinated'
and attended. Many thanks
to everyone who
helped. We appreciate each
and every one.
I saw Delores Howell,
longtime teacher and edu-
cational leader at South
Hamilton Elementary
planting seasonal flowers
in the planter in front of the
school on Sunday, Sept. 9.,
Thank you, Delores. I ap-
preciate it very much. I
have written before and
will write once again, that
it would be good if a busi-
ness such as Suwannee
Hardware (hint, hint)
would partner with the
school and provide annuals
and potting soil for the
planter about four times
each year. When one sees
that the planter is looking
nice, along with the
grounds and the interior of
the school, it makes a dif-
ference. Again, many
thanks, Delores. I appreci-
ate this very much.
I appreciate the partner-
ship that Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State
Park has with the school
at White Springs -and I also


appreciate the abiding sup-
port given by PCS, White
Springs. Thank you to
many businesses in our
area for your support. I en-
courage parents and com-
munity members to sup-
port the PTO Parent
Teachers Organization at
South Hamilton, it does a
lot for the students at the
school.
I see that LT Ogburn con-
tinues to work on the
' restaurant, formerly
Taglione's, and I know it
will be opened in the very
near future. I wish LT all
the best in his future en-
deavors. I always enjoyed
my visits to Taglione's.
Congratulations to all the
players who are a part of
the Special Olympics Team
traveling very soon to Chi-
na to play in the World
Games. I wish them all the
best, as they travel a long
way from home to repre-
sent our nation. We are
very proud of them and
their accomplishments!
On Saturday, I saw a lot
of my good Methodist and
Presbyterian friends lunch-'
ing at the Telford Hotel
Restaurant. Mama and I
shared a nice visit with
Margaret Henry. She relat-
ed to us that she and hus-
band, Ralph, just returned
from a two week's trip to
Wisconsin. Margaret re-
ported there was flooding
in one area along the Kick-
apoo River and that the
temperatures were hot -
but not quite as hot as
here. She stated they had a
wonderful time but were
glad to return home here
"way down upon the
Suwannee River."
It is my understanding
that in' the very near future,
Hardee's will open again in
Jasper. I understand that
John and Sharon Haskins
will be opening this busi-
ness. One day when I have
time, I want to bring
Sharon a graduation invita-
tion that was saved by the
late Mildred Shiver. The
graduation invitation was
sent by Sharon's mother,


the late Mildred Hunter
Bennett to Miss Shiver,
longtime educator at the
White Springs School, for
the graduation of the class
of either 1938 or 39 I can't
recall right now. I plan on
giving it to her, and I hope
she will treasure it.
The softball team of First
Baptist Church, White
Springs, came in first place
in the church recreation
league for this past season.

Lightning Season is here, and you need our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This 4
program is aimed at helping to protect members r
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
lightning strikes and other types of power surges -
and spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful -
increases in voltage which can damage or destroy
household appliances and electronics like computers,
televisions, telephones, and more. Power surges or spikes can be.
caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and trees interfering with
power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the
base of the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before
they enter the home. An additional level of protection is provided from
surge suppresses to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer
a basic level of protection for a household. Obviously,. however, specific
needs will vary from family to family and members enrolled in this
program can lease additional surge protectors to suit their individual
requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.

How to avoid the dangers


of pollution when


weatherizing your home


With global warming and energy consumption
becoming ever present issues in our daily lives,
more and more Americans are now choosing to
weatherize their homes in order to reduce the
amount of energy required for heating and cooling.
What we often neglect during this process,
however, are the steps we should also take to
minimize the dangers from pollution sources inside
our homes.
In the last several years, a growing body of
scientific evidence has indicated that the air within
homes can be more seriously polluted than the
outdoor air in even the largest and most
industrialized cities. According to the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), people
spend approximately 90 percent of their time
indoors, especially during the cold winter months.
Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be
greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors
than outdoors.
Measures such as installing storm windows,
weather stripping, caulking and blown-in wall
insulation can reduce the amount of outdoor air
infiltrating into a home. Consequently, after
winterizing, concentrations of indoor air pollutants
from sources inside the home can increase.
According to Gerry Gagnon, product and market
manager for Venmar Ventilation, first clues of poor
indoor air in your home are the signs of inadequate
ventilation, such as stuffy air, moisture
condensation on cold surfaces, or mold and
mildew growth. "It's crucial that additional
weatherization measures should not be undertaken
until these problems have been corrected," he
advised.
In most cases, homes have an overly humid
basement that breeds molds and other unhealthy
micro-organisms.


Most homes have more than one source that
contributes to indoor air pollution. Some of these
sources can include smoke, dust, pet dander, radon,
mold and other pollutants which can pose serious health
risks and contribute to respiratory disease, asthma and
even lung cancer.
Fortunately, there are steps that you can take both to
reduce the risk from these existing sources and to
prevent new problems from occurring. Here are some
tips to consider:
* Operate bathroom fans, if present, to remove moisture
from showers (these fans should be ducted to the outside
of the home), or simply crack the window to prevent
moisture buildup.
When a wood fire is present, a window should always
be kept open especially in a tightly sealed, energy
efficient house.
Invest in a quality range hood that will offer high-
performance ventilation to effectively eliminate
pollution, excess moisture and gas emissions in the
kitchetl from. every' day'ookingg.
Install a carbon monoxide detector on every floor of
the house.
Make sure a home's roof and windows are in good
shape. Water leaks, condensation and elevated levels of
humidity may not be visible, but moisture in interior
wall spaces can encourage mold growth and structural
degradation.
For optimal air quality, Gagnon recommends you
invest in an air exchanger system that will both filter out
harmful pollutants and distribute fresh tempered air
throughout the home, such as the air exchanger system
from Venmar. It combines heat recovery, ventilation and
HEPA filtration. The HEPA filter works to trap airborne
allergens and assists in distributing fresh air throughout
the home.
More details on the benefits of ventilation and filtration
are available at www.venmar.ca.

Dear Classified Guys,
My husband thinks I need a new
hobby. He no longer approves of the
dangerous world of gardening after.I
fell off a stepstool while pruning and
fractured my right wrist. Since I'm
right-handed, he has to do all of the
chores around the house. I'd feel
sorry for him, but I do them everyday
so he should be able to handle it for
a while. With all of this time on my
hands, at least the left one anyway, I
sat down to enjoy reading the news-
paper. That's when I noticed an old
British car for sale. You know, the
ones where the steering wheel is on
the right side. That got me think-
ing. Most cars are built for
right-handed people. We .t'
even drive on the right .
side of the road. Why did "-
America choose to favor
righties? I'm guessing there
is a good reason.

Carry. Although fractunnrg 'our
wnst is \er., untbrtunate Nou'%e deti-
nitel', found the bright side to \our
accident There are a lot of \m es ho
wish their hlilsband w ould take o.er the
chores for a while
Cash It seems gardening around
your house is a hazardous acti\ irs.


- ,' ,, 'C


Maybe you should add pruning to the
list of extreme sports like snowboarding.
Who knew you were so adventurous?
Carry: Kidding aside, you're learn-
ing what left-handed people have to
deal with everyday. Only about 10% of
the population is left-handed so most
products are designed for the majority
who use their right hand.
Cash: Unless you find items specifi-
calls designed for left-handed use, peo-
ple learn to deal w ith the inconvenience
of using basic things like scissors, hand
tools. or e% en fishing rods
Carry Automobiles follow a similar
trend, catering to the majonrr,
Hovw eer. the initial decision to dnae
on the righi-hand side of the road dates


back to long before automobiles.
Cash: The first law governing driving
on the right appeared in Pennsylvania in
1792, over 100 years before the first
automobile. It's believed that after
gaining independence from Britain, the
United States wanted to sever all ties,
including the driving pattern, and
switched to driving on the right.
Carry: Regardless of how many
things are designed tor nght-handed
people, it's likely. \ou'll become more
proficient at using our left hand in the
ne\t t'ew weeks
Cash. However, netl time .ou go uui
in the garden to do some pruning, ma be
Sou should dress like extreme atheletes.
%wear a helmet and some wnst guards!


Right of Way
Although we've always driven on the
right side of the road, the steering
wheel hasn't'always been on the left.
When automobiles were first intro-
duced, the steering wheel was often
placed on the right side to follow with
the tradition of horse drawn carriages.
However, it was quickly learned that
having the driver sit closer to the cen-
terline of the road was more practical to
judge spacing when oncoming cars
approached. In addition, this also
allowed passengers of the car to unload
onto the sidewalks rather than exit into
the middle of the street.
Think Lefty
A recent Australian study claims that
left-handed people are quicker thinkers.
When playing video games, driving in
heavy traffic or playing sports, we
process a lot of information using both
hemispheres of our brain. Left-handed
people tend to process that information
faster than right-handed people. The
stud. suggests that left-handers are
faster simplN because the. are forced to
Use both sides of the brain more often.

Irreconcilable Differences
I wasn't sure about a blind date. but
my sister set me up with one of her
co-workers. I was waiting at tbe
restaurant when m. cell phone rang.
It turned out m) date was stuck in
traffic and he decided to call to pass
the time until he arrived.
We hit it off talking about eer.-
thing including the differences
between men and women. As we
continued. I asked him. "You hae to
explain something. A middle-aged
bald gu\ trl ing to recapture his youth
just pulled into the parking lot in a
bright red sports car. Wh\ is it some
men can't accept their age'?"
I w as quite embarrassed w hen he
waved from the driver's seat and
replied. "Did I happen to mention I
dnxe a red convertible?"
(Thanks to Sandt- C.)

USDA announces fiscal year 2008 sugar program


Submitted
Initial parameters for the fis-
cal year (FY) 2008 sugar pro-
gram .have been released by
the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA), announced
USDA Farm Services Agency
(FSA) in Florida State Execu-
tive Director Kevin L. Kelley.
Using the latest data avail-
able, USDA has established
the FY 2008 overall allotment
quantity (OAQ) at 8,450,000
short tons, raw value (STRV),
to be consistent with the do-
mestic market share allocated
to domestic sugar beet and
sugarcane processors, as re-
quired by the Agricultural Ad-
justment Act of 1938, as
amended.
USDA established the FY
2008 raw sugar tariff-rate quo-
- ta (TRQ) at 1,231,497 STRV -
the United States minimum ac-
cess commitment under the
World Trade Organization
(WTO).
USDA established the FY
2008 refined and specialty
sugar TRQ at 94,251 STRV,
70,000 STRV above the WTO
Agreement required minimum
of 24,251 STRV, to avoid re-
stricting the robust domestic
organic food market.
FY 2008 Sugar Outlook


The August 2007 World
Agricultural Supply and De-
mand Estimates .(WASDE) re-
port indicates that FY 2008
sugar supply is expected to be
short of FY 2008 sugar needs
for a balanced market. The in-
dicated ending stocks-to-use is
13.3 percent below the tradi-
tional range for the U.S. sugar
market. There is a significant
shortfall within the domestic
organic sugar market, where
the WTO minimum import ac-
cess used in the August WAS-
DE is considerably below do-
mestic market needs.
USDA also notes that these
early estimates of the FY 2008
domestic sugar market are
subject to considerable adjust-
ment, particularly the WASDE
estimates of domestic sugar
production and imports from
Mexico.
FY 2008 Sugar Marketing
Allotment Program
USDA has previously an-
nounced that domestic sugar
marketing allotments will con-
tinue in effect for FY 2008 (see
the July 31, 2007, USDA news
release). Domestic sugar mar-
keting allotments are required
when imports, as defined by
statute, are estimated to be be-.
low 1,532,000 STRV. The cal-


FSA announces new closing dates

Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance
Program now set by regions


culation of the FY 2008 OAQ
is based on the estimate of do-
mestic sugar food use
(10,000,000 STRV) less the
statutory market share allocat-
ed to imports (1,532,000
STRV). USDA rounded the re-
sult of this calculation to the
nearest 50,000 STRV in recog-
nition of the significant uncer-
tainties surrounding the FY
2008 sugar market forecast at
this time.
USDA established the FY
2008 OAQ at 8,450,000
STRV. The OAQ was allocated
to the beet and cane sectors as
follows:
Beet Sugar: 4,592,575
STRV
Cane Sugar: 3,857,425
STRV
This allocation is estimated
to result in a surplus allotment
of 70,000 STRV for the cane
sector, all of which was reas-
signed to imports.
FY 2008 Raw Sugar TRQ
USDA today established the
FY 2008 raw sugar TRQ at
1,231,497 STRV, the United
'States minimum access com-
mitment under the WTO. Cer-
tain shipping pattern restric-
tions used in previous years
are not being imposed because
the overall TRQ is set at a low-
er level than in recent years. -
FY 2008 Refined TRQ


The FY 2008 refined sugar
TRQ is established at 94,251
STRV for which the sucrose
content, by weight, in the dry
state, must have a polarimeter
reading of 99.5 degrees or
more. This includes the United
States minimum access com-
mitment under the WTO,
24,251 STRV, and an addition-
al specialty sugar amount of
70,000 STRV to accommodate
a rapidly expanding organic
food sector. Included within
the WTO refined sugar TRQ is
a minimum specialty sugar
TRQ of 1,825 STRV.
USDA will administer the
FY 2008 specialty sugar TRQ
of 71,825 (1,825 + 70,000)
STRV in five branches. Be-
cause this is a first-come, first-
served TRQ, trenches are
needed to allow for orderly
marketing throughout the
year.; The first, totaling 1,825
STRV, will open Oct. 24,
2007. All specialty sugars are
eligible for entry under this
tranche. The second tranche
will open on Thursday, Nov.
15, and be equal to 24,850
STRV. The remaining three
trenchess will each be equal to,
15,050 STRV, with the third
opening on Jan. 30, 2008; the
fourth, on May 14, 2008; and
the fifth, on Aug. 27,
2008. The second, third,.fourth'


and fifth trenches will be re-
served for organic sugar and
other specialty sugars not cur-
rently produced commercially
in the United States or reason-
ably available from domestic
sources.
The authority for establish-*
ing the raw and the refined
TRQs is the Harmonized Tariff
Schedule of the United States,
Chapter 17, Additional U.S.
Note 5. The U.S. Trade Repre-
sentative will subsequently an-
nounce the country allocations
of these TRQs.
FY 2008 Market Impacts
Preliminary market indica-
tors.' incorporating the latest
available information from the
Aug. 10 WASDE report, plus
changes reflecting today's an-
nouncement, indicate a prelim-
inary FY 2008 situation as
shown below:
FY 2008 U.S. Sugar Mar-
ket Estimates, August 2007
WASDE, Adjusted for Today's
Actions
Carry-in stocks, 1,628,
1,628
Production, 8,291, 8,291
Imports, 1,889, 1,959
Total Use, 10,420, 10,420
Ending Stocks, 1,388, 1,458
Stocks-to-Use Ratio (%),
13.3, 14.0 ..
The estimated FY 2008 end-
ing stocks-to-use ratio, as


modified by today's actions, is
within the traditional range for
the stocks-to-use ratio in the
domestic sugar market.
USDA notes that these sugar
market estimates incorporate
the sugar trade expected from
the Mexico-United States
agreement of July 2006 and
full implementation of the
North American Free Trade
Agreement with Mexico on
Jan. 1, 2008. Due to consider-
able uncertainties involving
the sugar market estimates,
USDA will closely monitor
stocks, consumption, imports
and all sugar market and pro-
gram variables on an ongoing
basis. During the year, appro-
priate adjustments will be
made to the OAQ and TRQs as
required to ensure an adequate
supply for the domestic mar-
ket, avoid forfeitures and pre-
vent market disruptions.
Separately, USDA will, on
an individual processor basis,
announce initial FY 2008 cane
state allotments and sugarcane
and sugar beet processor allo-
cations.
For further information re-
garding trade programs, con-
tact Ron Lqrd, Foreign Agri-
cultural. Service, at 202-720-
2916, and for the domestic
program, contact Dan Colacic-
co, FSA, at 202-720-3451.

FSA is now able to set applica-
tion closing dates for its Non-
insured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP) based on
geographic regions, said Flori-
da FSA State Executive Direc-
tor Kevin L. Kelly. "The
changes in dates will allow
producers to report their crops
in a timelier manner without
having to guess what kind of
crops ihe\ will. be planting in
advance,' a sad Kelley. The
state's NAP regions will be
split into three areas: North,
Central and South. This change
also requires changes in the
National' Crop Table with re-
gards to NAP application clos-
ing dates.
The first crop to have an ap-
plication closing date change
for 2008 is okra. Okra will
have an ,application closing
date of Dec. 31 for the North
and Central regions and Nov.
30 for the Southern region.
These changes apply to the


S.C Sffiag


2008 crop year.
NAP provides financial as-
sistance to producers of nonin-
surable crops when low yields,
loss of inventory or prevented
planting occur, as a result of
natural disasters.
Eligible producers must ap-
ply for coverage of noninsur-
able crops using Form CCC-
471, "Application for Cover-
age," and pay the applicable
service fees at their local FSA
. office in Suwannee County at
386-362-2681. The application
and service fees must be filed
by the application closing date'
as established by the producer's
FSA state committee.
The service fee is the lesser
of $100 per crop or $300 per
producer per administrative
county, not to exceed a total of
$900 per producer with farm-
ing interest in multiple coun-
ties. Limited resource produc-
ers may request a waiver of ser-
vice fees.

tance programs, visit FSA on-
