When Edna Burn-
ham, Vice-Mayor of
Jasper, answered the
phone on Saturday, she
didn't expect to hear
she was dead.
"I'm calling to offer
my condolences on the
death of your mother,
Mrs. Edna Burnham,"
said the caller, who
thought he was talking
to Burnham's daughter.
Burnham told the
caller, "I'm Edna Burn-
ham and I'm not dead."


Soon other friends
called to tell Burnham
they had heard about
her death on a local ra-
dio station.
According to Burn-
ham, on Friday she
turned in her resigna-
tion as city council
member for District 4
due to health problems.
That act was somehow
misinterpreted to mean
Burnham had died.

find reading material and
encouraging them to read.
Later, the interest became
universal in the communi-
ty and now the city of
Jasper has a large library.
Well do I remember a
summer in Sanford when


there was no library, and
my reading material was
Charles Dickens found
only in my father's book,
shelves. That was stimula-
tion to start work on a li-
brary in the club house
and led later to a larger
one.


In Tampa, my mother's
interest involved the Ju-
nior Division. And I be-
:.came a.charter member.
NMI conclusion is that the
Jasper Woman's Club has
had an interest in the suc-
cess of many clubs around
the state of Florida.

aquatics, athletics (track
and field), bocce, bowling,
golf, powerlifting and ten-
nis. Approximately 400 ath-
letes and 150 coaches from
the US will attend the
games this year.
It has been a busy year
for the Stompers. In Sep-
tember 2006, the team
learned they had been cho-
sen to represent the US at
the Summer World Games.
After the initial public an-
nouncement, the team and
the coaches continued as
usual practice, practice,
practice, and more practice.
Then as game time
neared, the team jumped
into action. In July, the
Stompers attended a train-
ing camp in Nashville for
members of Team USA all
the athletes from the US
who are competing in the
Summer World Games.
The athletes participated in
team building activities and
learned about Chinese cul-
ture and language.
A little more than a week
after the team came home,
they were traveling again -
this time to Washington,
DC. The Stompers and the
other members of Team
USA-Florida were on hand
for the arrival of the Flame
of Hope at the Capitol. The
Flame was used to light the
Torch that was carried
across five continents in the
Global Law Enforcement
Torch Run honoring Spe-
cial Olympics. The team
even had time to visit the
Washington Monument
and the Lincoln Memorial
and go on a private tour of
the Capitol.
During a lull in their
travels, the Stompers were
interviewed by a magazine
and filmed for a commer-
cial. The team is featured in
a two-page spread in the
October issue of Sports Il-
lustrated ,ds.i The com-
mercial will air on the Sun
channel advertising the
Summer World Games.
The games will be televised
on the Sun channel after
the competitions are com-
pleted.
The Stompers were also
recognized by their home
county. On Sept. 12, the
Tourism Developmnent
Council hosted reception
in honor of theiteam's
achievement. Nancy Oliver,
who was E\ecutive Direc-
tor at the tune, ga%\e each
player and coach a goody
bag filled with items im-
printed with the Hamilton
County logo and a bright
blue HamiltorI
County /Special Olympics
T-shirt.
"We want you to take
Hamilton County with you
wherever you'go," Oliver
said. "CongratMlations on

your achievements so far
and good luck at the
games."
Patrick Burke, Manager of
the 1-75 Welcome Center,
gave the coaches a bag of
'"Visit Florida" pins and rolls
of stickers featuring popular
tourism sites in the state.
Coach Helen Udell said
they would use the items on
Trade Night, when teams
would exchange small gift
items.
"We are going for the
gold," Udell said. "When we
get back, we'll really have a
party."
County Commissioner
Lewis Vaughn said the
county was happy to help.
He told the young men, "I
know you and I'm sure you
will represent our county
well."
Coach John Brown from
Alachua, who is accompa-
nying the team, said he had
attended two World Games
in the US, but this will be
his first in another country.
"This is a great opportunity
for these guys," he added. "I
have the utmost confidence











..







that these young men will
come home with the gold."
Then on Saturday, Sept.
22, the Stompers traveled
south for some special*
training with the Orlando
Magic basketball team.
Magic stand-out Dwight
Howard, Head Coach Stan
Van Gundy, Assistant
Coach Brendan Malone,
and community ambas-
sador and former Magic
stand-out Nick Anderson


put the team through their
paces during a full on-court
clinic. The Stompers met
the Orlando Magic dancers "
and sat with Magic players
and coaches at autograph
tables. Each player received
an official Magic jersey with
his name on it.
Finally on Monday the
Stompers left on the first leg
of their trip to China. The
team boarded a luxury
coach bus, provided by PCS

According to the Detroit
Free Press, Rep. John Din- 200
gell wants a 50-cents-a-gal- BY WALTEJ
Ion tax on gasoline. We've
heard such calls before, but
there's a new twist. Dingell
also wants to eliminate the mortgage tax deduction on what
he calls "McMansions," homes that are 3,000 square feet
and larger. That's because larger homes use more energy.
One might wonder about Dingell's magnanimity in in-
creasing taxes for only homes 3,000 feet or larger. The aver-
age U.S. home is around 2,300 square feet, compared with

OPINION


Global warming hysteria


Europe's average of 1,000 square
A feet. So why doesn't Dingell call for
disallowing mortgage deductions on
NORITY houses more than 1,000 square
feet? The reason is there would be
V IEW too much political resistance, since
more Americans own homes under
3,000 square feet than over 3,000.
The full agenda is to start out with
07 Creators Syndicate 3,000 square feet and later lower it
R WILLIAMS in increments.
Our buying into global warming
hysteria will allow politicians to do
just about anything, upon which
they can muster a majority vote, in the name of fighting cli-
mate change as a means to raise taxes.
In addition to excuses to raise taxes, congressmen are us-
ing climate change hysteria to funnel money into their dis-
tricts. Rep. David L. Hobson, R-Ohio, secured $500,000 for
a geothermal demonstration project. Rep. Adam B. Schiff,
D-Calif., got $500,000 for a fuel-cell project by Superpro-
tonic, a Pasadena company started by Caltech scientists.
Money for similar boondoggles is being called for by mem-
bers of both parties.
There are many ways to reduce C02 emissions, and being
71 years of age I know many of them. Al Gore might even
consider me carbon neutral and possibly having carbon
credits because my carbon offsets were made in advance.
For example, for the first 15 years of my life, I didn't use
energy-consuming refrigerators; we had an icebox. For two
decades I listened to radio instead of watching television
and walked or used public transportation to most places.
And for more than half my life I didn't use energy-consum-
ing things such as computers, clothes dryers, air condition-
ing and microwave ovens. Of course, my standard of living
was much lower.
The bottom line is, serious efforts to reduce C02 will
lead to lower living standards through higher costs of liv-
ing. And it will be all for naught because there is little or no
relationship between man-made C02 emissions and climate
change.
There's an excellent booklet available from the National
Center for Policy Analysis (ncpa.org) titled "A Global
Warming Primer." Some of its highlights are:
"Over long periods of time, there is no close relationship
between C02 levels and temperature."
"Humans contribute approximately 3.4 percent of annual
C02 levels" compared to 96.6 percent by nature.
"There was an explosion of life forms 550 million years
ago (Cambrian Period) when C02 levels were 18 times,
higher than today. During the Jurassic Period, when di-
nosaurs roamed the Earth, CO2 levels were as much as nine
times higher than today."
What about public school teachers frightening little chil-
dren with tales of cute polar bears dying because of global
warming? The primer says, "Polar bear numbers increased
dramatically from around 5,000 in 1950 to as many as
25,000 today. -higher than any time in the 20th century." The
primer gives detailed sources for all of its findings, and it
supplies us with information we can use to stop politicians
and their environmental ex-

INSPIRATION POINT


Huge stinky mess


By Rick Leland

"The cats had a huge stinky mess
today," the note laying on the
kitchen countertop informed me.
My wife's scribbling allowed my
mind to easily grasp what to expect
in our cat's basement domain. This
wasn't the first time, it seems to be
more frequent as our cats, Timmons
and Ruby, head toward their twi-
light years.
Jokingly I asked my wife, "Re-
mind me again, why do we have
cats?" She alluded to their great
mice catching ability. Then she said,
"The cats are like relatives, you
can't get rid of them."
Oh.


Huge stinky relative problems go
back to history's first family when
Cain murdered his brother Abel.
From small squabbles to all out
war, the family continues to be a
battleground. We even have TVX
shows with family woes being the
main theme.
Most messy family situations
start out small. Let's consider what
you and I can do to keep them from
becoming huge stinky messes.
While this is a complex, multi-
faceted issue, the question of for-
giveness will certainly swirl in the
mix. Jesus was approached by
someone who was willing to for-
give "up to seven times" a relative
who had wronged him. Generous,


since the Jewish Rabbis of the day
taught that forgiveness should not
be extended beyond three times.
Jesus replied, "I tell you not sev-
en times but seven times seventy."
The point is he wasn't actually set-
ting the limit at 490, but illustrating
endless forgiveness.
Even forgiving a person once can
Je gut wrenchingly difficult. It was
kind of lke when I went to dean
up the cat's huge stinky. As I
kneeled on the floor with a rag wip-
ing up the smelly mess, the stench
tensed my stomach.
And sometimes we need to bend
to our knees with a white cloth and
wipe clean a huge stinky relative
problem.
We need to forgive. And let your
white cloth be forgiveness in the
manner Jesus prescribed "from
your heart."

Our county is reaching
out across the states. We
have had students move in
and register with us from
down -otith. New York,
TVii;ini.i and Pennsylvania
and we welcome all of you
to sunny 17 TlmiltnI County.
The middle p!.id,.- staff
held a Z ll.ib'.'i.iv ce lun-
cheon last week so they
could have the *I'jt' rhmirty
to share the p'-iti\ e- taking
place in our corner and
ideas. The delicious meal
and the camaraderie were
ci'N td by all.
Here is finding out a
warm welcome to the
C u i,.i i, O it ie's new data
clerk, M.in rann Harrell.
N :- Harrell has replaced
N :.- F.it:-i.ia Wi\nin who is
now the administrative sec-


rerary in the nHCHn At leuc
Department. Do encourage
the students to come on by
and say hello to Ms. Harrell
if they have not done so al-
ready.
Students are reading,
reading, and reading and
their efforts in Read 180 are
making a difference. Imo-
gene Bullock and Sue Bur-
kett are partners in Read
180 and their classroom in-
teraction encourages stu-
dent excitement. The class
room is set up like a cozy
room at home, allowing the
students to read on the sofa
or big fluffy pillows. It is
great seeing the students
enjoy reading, for it does
open their minds to a gi-
gantic world of learning
and success.
We continue to work on
our Parent Night plans so'
don't miss that coverage
next week.


Along wit progress re-
ports, parents should have
seen a TutorVista Online
Tutoring Application Form.
If you are interested in this
opportunity, please be sure
to get the form back in to
the Guidance Department.
You will be contacted with
a username and password
to access the program as
soon- as possible.
Judge Kenneth "Sonny"

this week. He shared with
the group his interest in and
his support of young peo-
ple.
Judge Scaff talked about
students' rights and shared
how they can file com-

simply by association. He
also talked about the kinds
of juvenile situations that
come before him
The judge's talk ignited
many questions from the
students and he took the
time to answer all of them.
The judge challenged stu-
dents to choose their
friends wisely and stay out
of trouble. He cautioned, "I
don't want to see you in my
court because you are
bright students, you can do
a good job and you can
make a difference."
Judge Scaff was very en-

the students for being such
a fantastic group. A special

ove bugs are
here. Noticed W hite Spi
them for the first
time on Friday,
and they are out
in force for the next several
weeks. It will be time to pull ,. -
out your bug screens and
make sure your washer fluid -, "
is kept up because these
creatures make a mess. As of By Johr
yet, there is not a bird that
will eat them, and they are a
nuisance, but only for a short while.
White Springs was abuzz, not with just love bugs but
with quite a bit of activity this past weekend. First Bap-
tist Church, White Springs, had a great rummage/bake
sale at the educational building and raised a large sum of
money to support special missions. The sale was orga-
nized by Joyce Warner.
SJanet Moses'auctioned one of her houses, the historic
Jones-Hay House on CR 135 (the Woodpecker Route),
just across the railroad tracks. I did not attend this auc-
tion, but I noted that there was a big crowd present. Janet
auctioned the home and some of the contents.
Our school board member, Joyce Law Shaw, does so
much volunteer work in our schools. Truly, she is a full
time school board member, and she does everything
from scrubbing restrooms to volunteering in classrooms.
This past summer, she promised to take a group of ele-
mentary boys on a camp-out if they would improve their
grades and behavior and, true to her word, she took the
whole group out to Spirit of the Suwannee for a weekend'
of fishing, hiking, camping, frying fish and the whole
nine yards. I know these students will look back in years
to come and appreciate this special outing. Thank you,
Joyce. We appreciate you!
Don't forget about Swift Creek's United Methodist
Homecoming on Sunday, Sept. 30, beginning at 10:30
a.m. This historic sanctuary is the second oldest Protes-
tant church in the state of Florida. The song service will
begin at 10:30 a.m. The morning worship service will be-
gin at 10:45 a.m. with the Rev. Bill Peeler, pastor of White
Springs United Methodist Church serving as
officiant. Following the morning worship service, there
will be dinner on the grounds.
Bobby Hicks, Tampa, Frank Thomas, Lake Wales, Ken
Buchanari. Lbxahatchee, Jim Carrick and Stuart Pacetti,
St. Augustine, were all visitors at the "Health Club" this
past weekend over at the farm. Our family thoroughly
enjoyed their visit, and Jerry Lawrence and I loved the
time we spent with this august group of Florida folk leg-
ends.
Our own Bobby Hicks, Tampa, has been diagnosed
with terminal cancer, and he needs your prayers and
support. Bobby is a renowned Florida singer/songwriter
who writes out of a sense of heritage and love.
Frank Thomas, probably the dean of Florida Folk Mu-
sic, has written over 400 Florida songs including "Span-
ish Gold" and the "Old Cracker Cowman." In my humble
opinion, he fits in the same category as Will

Attention ladies! Sisterhood will meet on
Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. at Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church, Jennings.
Please notice the change of date, and
plan to attend, we will remind you
again before that date. Make your plans to attend, bring
a salad or dessert to share, put it on your calendar now,
I will try to do that too. Hope to see you there!
On Monday morning we attended the send-off for the
Hamilton County Stompers as they boarded the bus to
go to Orlando to catch a plane for China where they
will be in basketball competition. Such excitement! It
will be a great experience; most of us have never been
to China or taken such a trip as this. We wish them the
very best and send our prayers with them. There is a
web site where we will be able to keep up with them -
www.specialolympicsflorida.org.
This may (?) be the last time I will write about my
birthday celebration, but I must let all of you know how
very much the weekend meant to me; it makes me feel

McClean. Thomas and

rin gs Hicks will both be head-
line performers at this
P i year's annual Florida Folk
8 I Festival. Jimmy Carrick is
probably if not the "best"
one of the "best" guitarist
in the state of Florida. Lis-
tening to him play is like
ny Bullardhearing magic.
ny Bullard ^ f J Kerry Waldron, now
city manager of Adel, Ga.,
and White Springs native,
has written a motivational book and recently hosted a
book signing in Adel. I am very proud of Kerry and his
accomplishments. At this writing, he is visiting friends in
England. I know he will have a marvelous time and
come back with all kinds of great tales to tell. Kerry will
be singing with Jerry Lawrence and me during the annu-
al Florida Folk Festival, Nov. 9 through Nov. 11.
Happy birthday this week to Dorothy L. Bryant, White
Springs. Mrs. Bryant, longtime resident and educator in
the south county area is a very remarkable
individual. Mrs. Bryant served Carver High School and
Carver Elementary as teacher, then South Hamilton as
teacher, guidance counselor, administrative assistant,
principal, and then part-time guidance since her retire-
ment. We wish her many more happy birthdays. We
won't say how old she is, but she is celebrating an an-
niversary of her 39th.
Marion Turner, Jasper, called me over the weekend
with news of the upcoming one hundredth anniversary
of the Jasper Woman's Club. It is quite an accomplish-
ment to have a civic group that has been in existence for
one hundred years. I know the Woman's Club, Jasper,
will have a wonderful celebration.
Congratulations to the Hamilton County Trojan foot-
ball team and their victory over Baldwin this past Friday
night. I wish all the members of the team, along with the
coaches, all the best for an outstanding season!! Go, Tro-
jans!
Happy belated 47th anniversary to Dr. and Mrs. Ralph
P. Witt, Jr. (Paul and Carolyn), Suwannee Valley. They
are the parents of Libby Carver. We wish them many
more happy anniversaries!
It was nice sharing a short visit with Marilyn Morgan
Cowart this past weekend at the First Baptist Church
yard sale. She shared with me some nice photos of her
son, Adam, who is proudly serving this nation in the
armed forces. Adam is stationed at Fort Bliss, Tex., and is
married and has a baby of his own. Adam is the son of
Donnie and Marilyn Cowart. Maternal grandparents are
Mr. and Mrs. John Morgan. Paternal grandparents are
the late Mr. and Mrs. Stafford.Cowart. We are all very
proud of Adam and his accomplishments.

Have a good week,

Hamilton County I love you!


so humble. I have spent much time in the past weeks re-
calling the events of the weekend going over the
cards, the guest book, remembering something about
each of you that makes you such an important part of
my life.
One thing that comes to mind has been .that, as I
watched over the crowd on that Sunday afternoon, it
seemed everyone was having a good time. That was the
purpose of such an event. I could see old friends greet-
ing each other, talking with my local family and out-of-
town guests, introducing themselves to new folks, be-
lieving they were sharing memories, old times, and
catching up with the lives of each other. There were
people who probably had not seen each other for a
while, maybe never, sharing stories with each other.
That is the hope of our family.
A special treat and surprise on the Saturday evening
get-together at Ben and Leigh Ann's home for family
and out-of-town guests, was when Ben ordered me to
sit down in the recliner in front of the TV. Ben had
asked me for pictures but I had expected them to be on
a board or something, but all of a sudden I saw the pic-
tures appear on the screen. Wow, what a glorious gift.
This was put together as a gift from Steven and Kathy
McGhin, and I know Clyde McGhin had a big part in it.

Also, Clyde appeared with his cell phone
in hand, handed it to me, and Inez was
ready to talk with me a great gift from
the McGhin family.
Many thanks to Rob Wolfe, who of
course has been with uson all of our fam-
ily occasions, who kept busy getting some
outstanding pictures. I will be endeavor-
ing to get special thank yous to each of
you who did so much for us as soon as I
can just know that you all are the great-
est,
. As I am getting this in a little late this
week and they are keeping space for me. I
plan to wait until next week to thank all
of the out of town guests who made a
special effort to be with us for the week-
end. Words cannot begin to tell you how
much each of you means to me and my
family. As I saw each of you something


would come to my mind that brought
memories of our lives together and the
special places you have in my life.
A big thank you to my family, Ben,
Leigh Ann, Trey and Kaleigh, Marybeth,
Kaleb and Jordan for making this possi-
ble, from my Church family and those
who prepared the food and served,
worked at the Church, Leigh Ann's par-
ents Richard and Ann Shepard and all
who helped see that everything was done
behind the scenes, men and ladies from
the Church who, as usual, saw that it all
ran smoothly, the ladies who prepared the
foods, Jan Hunter, Dolores Howell, Dana
Fouraker. I am sure there will be others
who I will learn had, a part in the celebra-
tions. Those of you who were there proba-
bly know who helped my family make
this a day none 6f us will ever forget.
Love and prayers. Lillian Norris

it is our way of saying
thank you for a job well
done. The Fillyaw resi-

great example of that," said
Tom Moore, Chairman of
the Beautification Commit-
tee.

pride in our community,
beautify our entire town,

the people and businesses
for their work to make
White Springs a better,
more attractive place to
live and work," said Robert
Townsend, Town Manager.

history

The GS&F Railway ran
from Macon, Ga., through
Valdosta, Ga., to Jack-
sonville, with a branch line
from Valdosta through
Lake City to Palatka,
throughout most of the

railways in 1954 and made
the two short lines sub-
sidiaries of the GS&F.
Anyone who is interest-
ed in the history of rail-


roads in Suwannee County
is invited to attend and
participate in the work-
shop. To help defray costs
of the workshop, admis-
sion is $10 each. Attendees

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 suppressers 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.

We Take



Health to


Your



Heart


Clean Out the Medicine Cabinet:

Prescription Stomach Pills Could

Be Hurting You


This year the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) asked
major drug manufacturer Novartis to voluntarily pull their
popular prescription medication Zelnorm from pharmacy
shelves. Zelnorm, used to treat irritable bowel syndrome
(IBS), constipation and other digestive disorders, may
cause a risk of cardiovascular side effects, including an
increased risk of heart attack or stroke. This medication
joins a long line of prescription drugs that were taken off
the market due to side effects that were more harmful to
the patient than the remedy.
In the wake of these recent findings, the public should
sort through their medicine cabinets, cleaning out
anything that is expired and potentially tossing
prescription drugs that could be doing more harm than
good.

More than a Stomach Ache
Digestive problems account for millions of doctor visits
each year. But prescription medication needn't be the first
course of treatment for relief. Many doctors treat the
symptoms of digestive problems rather than the causes
themselves. Therefore, prescription medication that either
suppresses acid production or gas in the stomach and
intestines.is often the first line of defense. However,
boosting the natural enzymes in the digestive system can
be a better course of action.
Nu-ZymesTM is a dietary supplement that is taken
before, after or between meals. Each all-natural capsule is
fortified with a unique blend of maylase, protease,
lactase, lipase, cellulase, acidophilus and CereCalaseTM
- a special blend of three enzymes. These plant- and
fungi-derived enzymes perform specific functions to help
the digestive system work properly by breaking down
fats, proteins, sugars and other nutrients into smaller
particles for ease of digestion.
"My 13-year-old son was diagnosed with irritable bowel
syndrome when he was 5 years old," says Cynthia H. of
Alto, Texas. "I have searched for something to help him
for years and finally gave up until I watched a program on
Nu-Zymes. I ordered them and my son could tell a

Prescription drugs may not be your best bet for digestive problems.


difference immediately. My whole family takes them now."
In addition to supplementing with Nu-Zymes, there are other
steps to take that can improve digestion:
Enjoy smaller portions: Overeating can cause weight gain
and contribute to bloating and acid reflux.
Eat more raw foods: Raw vegetables and fruits are full of
nutrients and the natural enzymes your body needs.
Clean out your digestive system: Toxins can build up in your
digestive tract, impacting health and leading to weight gain.
Scientifically formulated to flush out the digestive tract,
Regulux removes the same energy-draining toxins that build
up on the bowel walls, maintaining healthy colon function while
promoting a healthier intestinal lining.
Drink plenty of water: Water flushes out the body and
promotes good health across the board.
Call 1-800-209-8188 to try Nu-Zymes or Regulux risk-free for
30 days. Mention code VLM1 when calling to save.

tificate raffle, which will be
drawn at the annual meeting in

Dear Classified Guys,
My 15-year-old daughter has been
reading the classified and circling
employment ads of places she'd like
to work. My husband and I are leery
of letting her get a job. We think she
is too young for a part-time job and
fear that it will interfere with her
schoolwork. She already gets
$10/week allowance, but she says
she wants to make more money to
buy clothes and go to the movies
with her friends. We sat her down for
a family meeting the other night
hoping to resolve our differences.
We tried to keep it calm, but there
was a lot of screaming and yelling.
When she practically threatened to
start shoplifting, we decided to take
her concerns more seriously.
We're wondering if a job is a
good Idea for such a young -
teenager. At what age Is it -
okay to let her go to work?

Cash: Muia leciijnucrs love
the idea otl' gittmi thcir first job and
redline independent. Of course, as they
2io"\ into adults, they usually can't wait
to ictiic either,
Carry: Much like most parental
decisions, there is no specific rule on
what age is appropriate for a first job.


A


I ,
It should depend on the child's emo-
tional maturity and your best judgment.
Cash: Obviously your family meet-
ing didn't quite go, as planned.
Screaming and yelling never really help
any situation.
Carry: First, you should be proud that
your daughter is asking to have a job and
not just an increase in allowance. It does
show she has initiative, especially since
she's been reading the classified section.
Cash: It's never too early for her to
learn good working habits. Having a
part-time job on the weekend has a lot
of benefits such as teaching her to be
on iime, developing self-esteem and
having a sense of responsibility.


Carry: Some adults have needed
several jobs to figure all that out!
Cash: If you don't believe she is
emotionally ready for a weekend job,
there are other options you can try to.
compromise with her. Consider offer-
ing her a paid job around the house or
maybe she could work for a close
neighbor. That way she gets to make
some extra money, but you get to make
sure her schedule doesn't interfere with
her schoolwork.
Carry: Negotiating a compromise
with her on this situation will go a long
way to developing your relationship.
That will prove very helpful when she
turns' 16 and wants her first car!


Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


Summer Smarts
Anew study by The American
Sociological Review found that how
children spend their summer break could
have a big impact on their future. Over
summer break, kids, often forget much of
what they learned in school. However,
those who were engaged in organized
sports, read newspapers, visited muse-
ums, and engaged in mental activities
over the summer break had an increase
in academic achievement. They were
more likely to attend a four-year college
and reduce their dropout rate.
Celebrity Style
Not many of us had glamorous first
jobs. So it may be comforting to know
that even the celebrities started out sim-
ple. Singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani
wasn't always a pop star. She started
working by scrubbing floors at a Dairy
Queen. Actor Matthew McConaughey
shoveled chicken manure for a while.
Actress Kate Iliunslei once %worked at a
deli making sandwiches. E\ en actor
BradPitt had many jobs that, didn't
make the "A list", including dressing up.
as a chicken mascot, 'moving refrigera-
tors and being a limo driver.

Retail Reality
As the HR Manager for a large
retail store, I'm alh a.s looking for
good honest w workers. Luckily with
the ne\x school season. I get a fe,\
students looking for a job after
school.
As if on cue. I had a young high
school girl stop in and fill out an
application. She \\as \er. meticu-
lous, taking the time to answ er each
question. When she handed it to me,
I took a fe%% minutes to look it o\er
Linder the previous employment
section she listed "babysiner" as her
last job. Before I could ask her about
it. I laughed at the next line. Next to
reasons 'or leaving she irTOte. "They
came home."

Submitted
Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices (FDACS) Commission-
er Charles Bronson an-
nounced recently that FDACS
is seeking the public's help in
locating over 200 camellia
plants that have been reported
missing from Esposito's Gar-
den Nursery, Inc., in Tallahas-
see, where the plants were be-
ing held under quarantine be-
cause, they were infected with
or exposed to Phytophthora
ramorum, or sudden oak death
(SOD), a very serious fungal
disease that may be deadly to
certain oaks and other hard-
woods, and also adversely af-
fects other plants including
camellias, rhododendrons
(azaleas) and viburnums. Un-
lawful movement of quaran-
tined plants is a violation of
Section 581.101 of the Florida
Statutes.
The plants were placed un-
der quarantine after a January
2007 survey at Esposito's de-
termined that camellias were
showing symptoms of SOD.
Samples were submitted to the
Department's Gaines ille Jab
and %%ere confirmed positive
for SOD. At that time, approx-
imately 964 host plants were
identified for destruction or
quarantine for a minimum of
90 days. In February, 406 of
these plants including all the
known positives were de-
stroyed and the remaining 558
host plants, that at the time
showed no signs of disease,
were allowed to be moved to
Esposito's wholesale nursery
located in Havana for the re-
mainder of the quarantine pe-
riod.
In March, during a subse-
quent survey at the Havana fa-
cility, some of the plants being
held in quarantine showed
signs of SOD. Samples were
analyzed and found to be pos-
itive for SOD. On April 5, the
Department returned to con-
duct destruction of the re-
maining 558 plants' and found
that approximately 206 of.the
quarantined plants were miss-
ing. On April 10, the Depart-
ment requested an explanation
of the whereabouts of the
missing plants and gave the
owner until April 12 to re-
spond.
On April 11, Esposito's Gar-
den Center owner reported to
the Gadsden County Sheriffs
Office in Quincy that the quar-
antined plants had been stolen
around March 30. Esposito's
owner had not contacted the
Department to report the miss-
ing quarantined plants which
is a requirement of Section
581.101 of the Florida
Statutes which addresses the
unlawful movement of quar-
antined plant material. A state
and federal investigation into
the matter was initiated.
In August, a report by state
and federal agriculture offi-
cials was received and as a re-
sult of the investigation, a no-
tice of violation has been is-
sued by the state to Esposito's
Nursery, Inc., along with an
administrative complaint and
fine of $5,000. The owner has
the right to contest the Depart-
ment's findings, and can re-
quest an administrative hear-
ing within 21 days of receipt
of the notice of violation. Ad-

Sudden oak death presents a
real and ongoing threat to
Florida's agricultural industry,
environment and economy.
Movement of nursery stock is
a recognized channel for the
spread of SOD from estab-
lished areas to new locations,
creating a situation of great
concern for the state. SOD
was first detected in Esposito's
Garden Center and five other
nurseries in North Florida in
2004 when infested plant ma-
terial, from California was
identified by Department
nursery plant inspectors. All
known infections were eradi-
cated. However, in January
2007, it recurred at the Espos-
ito Garden Center, and control
actions were once again im-
plemented.
Esposito's Garden Center
records do not provide infor-
mation on where the missing
plants were distributed. If they
were stolen as they have indi-
cated, chances of locating the
plants are extremely low.
The Department, along with
the USDA, is drawing on all
resources to prevent the estab-
lishment of SOD in Florida,
and therefore locating these
missing plants is a priority.
The camellia plants were re-
moved from the Havana facil-
ity in late March or early
April. The camellia plants
were in 3-gallon pots. Vari-
eties included hiemalis, hy-
brids, japonica, sasanqua and
vernalis.
If anyone has information
about these missing plants,
please contact the Gadsden
County Sheriffs Office or the
Department's Division of
Plant Industry helpline toll-
free at 888-397-1517.
The public can also play a
vital role in identifying sus-
pected SOD infestations by
serving as extra pairs of eyes
to be on the look out for SOD
symptoms in their yards or
other natural areas of the state.
For more information on
SOD, visit
www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi or
call the Department's toll-free
helpline number 888-397-
1517.
