Competition begins Friday

ABC Family Channel will air the '

cast of the ceremony.
"We are here in China fulfill-
ing a dream of a lifetime,"
Coach Helen Udell said about
the Hamilton Stomperson iMon-
day, Oct. 1.
The Stompers, AKA Team


* USA-FL, left Jasper on Sept. 24,
heading for China to represent
the United States in the 2007
Special Olympics Summer
World Games. After an
overnight stay in Orlando, the
team flew to Los Angeles. Calif..
';where they were joined bv the
other three teams from the US.:
The four teams and eight man-


agement team members left Los
Angeles the afternoon of Sept.
26 and arrived irn Beijing, China,
the evening of Sept. 27.
The athletes stayed in Beijing,
their Host Town, for four days
learning about the culture of
China. The time also allowed
them to recover from jet lag and
acclimate themselves to the dif-


ferent time zone, before the
competitions.
On Friday, Chinese digni-
taries welcomed Team-USA to
China during a ceremony at
Qianhai Square in Shichahai
Community's Lotus Market.

Wild Adventures
began as Liberty
Farms, a small petting

"gradually into the

"I laid out every single

A bankruptcy judge in
Macon issued the final
ruling on Sept. 27, that
will clear the way to sell
the two parks that were a
part of Adventure Parks

The successful buyers at
Tuesday's auction were

$34.5 million for Wild Ad-
ventures in Valdosta, and

A Woman's

Club
Submitted by Venia Home Hodge
- he Woman's Club of Jasper is planning a cel-
ebration in recognition of 100 years of service
to Hamilton County, and surrounding com-
munities. Everyone is invited to a grand re-
ception at the club house on Friday, Oct. 19, from 2
p.m. until 5 p.m.'
A past dub member, Mildred Shepherd, maintained
club records for many decades. Even though the
records have deteriorated with age, the style of writing
is very distinct and descriptive. The following excerpts
are based on the records of the Club's first 30 years.
The year of 1905 saw the inception of a movement
in Jasper that was far reaching in its influence and that
was to contribute much to the enjoyment and cultural
life of the community. Through all these years of fair
weather and foul, through prosperity and depression,
and two world wars, theClub is an organization that
has included the names of grandmothers, mothers and
daughters of our city through ten decades.
Because a. few of the ladies of the dtN`were widely
read, they wanted more interesting and better things
.than were available at that time. So they encouraged
the town to invest in a small library of books. Mrs. RD

whose vision created one and revived the
other remains undecided.
"It's been an interesting ride the last cou-
ple of years, and not very fun at times,"
said Kent Buescher, president and chief ex-
ecutive officer of APG, adding that both
companies have extended "good offers" to
him, but he is not making any personal de-
cisions about his future until he is certain
the parks and employees are taken care of.
"We created a really wonderful place,
made friends and brought 12 million peo-
ple to Lowndes County ... and it all started
with two horses, a calf and a goat," he
said. "It's been an honor and a privilege
for me and my family. It's been my life for
the past 17 years, and we want a smooth
hand off."
Herschend closed on Wild Adventures
Friday and Land South will dose on Cy-
press Gardens on Oct. 15, ending a brief
but mutually beneficial relationship that
began in 2004 when APG purchased the
Florida attraction to preserve the gardens
and bring in entertainment and rides to re-
vitalize the beloved landmark.
Three hurricanes that hit back to back
during renovations in 2004 caused $30 mil-
lion in damages to Cypress Gardens, with
approximately $10 million paid by insur-
ance carriers to date, and the rest still in
negotiation: Buescher said he will see the
claims through regardless of his involve-
ment with either park, saying, "The clouds
that have been hanging over the parks
since the hurricanes hit had to be lifted."
Valerie McCarty, spokesperson for Her-
schend Entertainment, was in town
Wednesday at Wild Adventures as the
company is eager to begin its ownership
transition. A team of company employees
.will be arriving over the next several days,
and will be meeting with the 600 full- and'
part-time employees to offer reassurance


Stompers


and present the company's plans for the
park's management.
Herschend owns, operates, or partners in
17 properties in seven states, including
Branson's Silver Dollar City, Dollywood in
Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and Stone Mountain
Park in a partnership with the state of
Georgia. The company's corporate office is
in Atlanta with an office in Branson, Mo.,
as well..
McCarty said it will be "business as usu-
al" at the park throughout the hopefully
smooth transition period. She said the val-
ue Wild Adventures offers its guests, in
addition to the family atmosphere, is
"aligned with what Silver Dollar City and
Dollywood already do."
She'said the plans that are already in
place will continue as far as events sched-
uled, including the annual Halloween
event, Phobia. "Herschend's interest in the
park is because it's so successful and well
run," adding while it's premature to dis-
cuss any specific future plans, there's no
reason to believe anything significant will
change for the guests of the park.
Buescher said he feels both companies
were the best possible buyers for each park
and he is happy with the results of ihe auc-
tion. "My official role the last 18 months
was to maximize the value of both parks
for the creditors and I've done everything
possible to do so, including selling some-
thing I didn't intend to sell (referring to
Wild Adventures). I hope to still make a
difference in the community and Valdosta
is my home, irrespective of what hap-
pens."
As for Herschend, Buescher said the
company is "so closely aligned, we could-
n't ask for a better group to hand the torch
to. It's gratifying and bittersweet."
All scheduled shows will continue and
all current passes will be honored at both
parks.

vided entertainment for the athletes, in-
cluding a display of traditional Chinese
dances. Then the' teams visited the Beijing
Planetarium and viewed various exhibits,
including a visual display of birth and
death in the' solar system and a 4-D show
about an invasion of the earth.
The day ended with an eight-course tra-
ditional Chinese banquet at the Beijing
Capital Xindaou Hotel. This was the first
time many members of the teams had used
chop sticks, but they quickly learned the
proper technique. After the dinner, dis-
abled citizens from the area provided en-
tertainment, such as dancing, acrobatics
and magic shows.
Saturday was another busy day, begin-
ning with a tricycle buggy trip to Shichahai
Community Service Center. The Center of-
fers programs for people with disabilities
and has rooms for table tennis, billiards,
dancing and exercising, as well as a li- ,
brary. After the athletes and their hosts ex-
changed gifts, the teams toured the facility.
Then the athletes took another tricycle
buggy ride to the homes of local families,
where they helped prepare a meal and ate
lunch. Volunteers from the Beijing USA
College of English acted as interpreters.
In the afternoon Team USA-FL visited
the Beijing #4 High School, where they
were welcomed by the Vice-Mayor of Bei-
jing, Ding Xiangyang. After another ex-
change of gifts, the teams played practice
games with area teams. Team USA-FL
took on the #4 High School in a hard-
played game. Members of the local law en-
forcemeht joined both teams for the second
half of the game.
The teams ended the da\ mith a bus tour
of Beijing. The highlight of the evening,
was Tianmen: Square, which was decorated
with specially designed lighting for the,
National Holiday. The Chinese celebrate


the anniversary of the founding of the Peo-
ple's Republic of China on Oct. 2 with spe-
cial flag raising ceremonies, fireworks and
horse racing.
Team-USA visited Tianmen Square on
Sunday and viewed the Forbidden City
from,afar. Then they toured the Exhibition
Hall at the site of the 2008 Olympic Games
where a scale model of the facilities and a
giant model of the entire Olympics village
are on display. The evening ended with a
farewell banquet, games and dancing.
The basketball teams joined the other
athletes in Shanghai on Monday, Oct. 1.
They visited local schools and community
centers and played games for Physical,
Training Day. Then they headed to a mini-
mall and bought lots of Dove chocolate
and M&Ms. The Chinese do not.eat many
sweets or desserts and those are the only
two chocolates that taste like American
chocolate.
Chinese law enforcement officials escort-
ed all the delegations from around the
world to the Shanghai Stadium on Tues-
day. Almost 750 people entertained the
athletes on a stage that extended along ;
each end of the stadium. The entertain-
ment included songs, musical instruments,
martial arts and other activities. Many
celebrities made an appearance, either as a
guest speaker or as an escort for the ath-
letes, such as Jackie Chan, Colin Farrell, the
Premier of China (their Pre-.ident), Quincy
Jones, Houston Rockets Yao Ming, Arnold
Schw\arzenegger. Maria Shriver. Tint Shriv-
er and Eunice Shriver (founder of Special
Olympics). .
The Gaines began on Wednesday, Oct. 3,
with merit's, women's and unified team di-
visioning. The first round of competition
will be held on Friday, Oct. 5.'

Tompkins, more affection-
ately called "Miss Bessie,"
was the pioneer personage
who, by personal canvass-
ing, persuaded about 20 of
the enterprising matrons to
choose fictional, historical
and biographical-books. It is:
said, with no special degree
of pride, that the works of'
fiction predominated.
An acceptable member
was elected as librarian.


This system worked well
and provided an outlet and
connection with the outside
world. (Remember trans-
portation was much more
difficult than it is today.)
Mrs. Agnes Cone McRae,.
a charming matron, was the
first president. She handled
the office gracefully and
well. She displayed an in-
nate ability in guiding
Jasper's first dub through
infancy. The infant grew by
leaps and bounds as mem-


bership increased. Jasper
women have long been fa-
mous for their excellent
culinary ability. The refresh-
ment division of the social'
entertainments came to be
looked forward to with ap-
preciation and pleasure.
. A much needed civic
mood permeated the orga-
nization. The club moved'
quickly onward to promote
a betterment of the streets,
homes, etc., in the commu-
nity. Those were the days


when bovine animals,
chickens, hogs and predato-
ry animals, roamed heart
and fancy free over the
thoroughfare of the town.
Much opposition to their re-
moval was not met from
the city fathers. Committees
working overtime, 'city
council aid, etc., accom-
plished a much desired
end.
Mrs. Tompkins deserves
much praise and recogni-
tion for her untiring effort.
Mrs. WH (Paulk) Green,
Miss Thula Rice, Mrs.
Melvin Hunter, Mrs. JR
Sandlin, Mrs Bascom
Blackwell, Miss Mabel
Blackwell, her mother, Mrs.
Stripling and her daughter
Mrs. HF Smith, Misses Nel-
lie and Gussye Frink, Mrs. :
IJ McCall and Miss Pearl
(Altman) Roberts were all
charter members.
Business meetings were
held once a month'alternat-
ing with social meetings,
which were faithfully re-
ported in the. town paper,


the Jasper News. Educa-
tional programs included
graphical studies, American
history, civil government
and other courses.
During the first 30 years
(1907-1937) many capable
and efficient women have
served as president of the
dub, standing at the helm,'
guiding it off the rockslhat
seemed at times would "
wreck it.
The club continues in
2007 to work through de-
partments: Education, Inter-
national Affairs, Public Af-
fairs, Home Life, Conserva-
tion and Fine Art. It is in-
deed wide in its scope. Each,
member gets to choose
which committee they want
to serve on.
-Until recently the dub
worked in the capacity of a
parent-teacher association,
giving much aid to the
school in talent, time arid
money. The civic depart-
ment is largely responsible
for making Jasper the beau-
tiful and attractive little city


it is today and a haven of
rest in which to live.
This chapter could not be
dosed without honorable
mention of the men who
played a fundamental part
in the Club's history. Mr.
Jim Corbett gave the
Woman's Club a beautiful
lot on which to build a long
hoped for club house. For
several year-s funds were
raised. Then came the Roo-
sevelt administration with
all of its possibilities.
Mr. Graham Black
worked in co-operation
with Mrs. MW Wethering-
ton, our beloved president,
and succeeded in getting a
WPA (Works Progress Ad-
ministration) project that
made it possible to get a
club house. The club origi-
nally put $1,000 toward the
building. Today a building
stands on the dub lot, con-
structed of rocks frpm the
famous Suwannee River.
The final cost was $10,000 -
a building which towns
many times the size of
Jasper would be proud to
own. Mr. Stanley Adams
bought the dub note for the
sum of $400, thus making it
possible to raise the $1,000.
Come help us celebrate
100 years in October and
see vignettes based on five
of the 20 year increments.
WWI, WWII, Korean War,
Vietnam, Desert Storm, Op-
eration Iraq Freedom all
had a profound effect on
the lives of the women.
Members today feel
proud and honored to serve
just as previous members
did. By the way, the dub
meeting continues to be
covered by the Jasper News.

Farm Bureau membership drive successful

FARM BUREAU MEMBERSHIP DRIVE: New and current Farm Bureau members include (front, I-
r) Mr. and Mrs. Juan Marin, Mr. and Mrs. Rocco Di Giorgib and Gene Starr Sr.; (back) Jon Deas and
Damon Deas. Photo Submitted


Submitted
The Hamilton County Farm Bu-
reau recently concluded their An-
nual Membership Drive in our
county and added more than 10
new Farm Bureau members.
According to Jon Deas, the Farm
Bureau has been a strong voice for
landowners, farmers and ranchers
for the past 50 years, and every
landowner in the county needs to
belong to Farm Bureau. Landown-
ers face many challenges in our,
state, and perhaps the one that
most affects agriculture is land tax-
es.
For the past several years, some
people in South Florida have tried
to change the Agricultural Assess-
ment Law, commonly: called the
Greenbelt Law. The law is not an


exemption, but a method of taxing
property based on its use.
"If we ever allow south Florida to
introduce a change in the Green-
belt, we don't have enough votes
from conservative north Florida to
keep our Greenbelt where farmers
can continue to own land and farm
the land," said Deas. "There is
enough teeth already in the Assess-
ment Law to prevent folks from
abuse of the law. We are fighting to
protect Greenbelt every year."
The Farm Bureau is also involved
with Ag in the Classroom pro-
grams, youth activities, Food Check
Out Day activities, and several oth-
er programs. Anyone interested in
joining the Farm Bureau, should
visit the local office at 1117 NW US
41 in Jasper.


United Way receives $60,000 grant for homeless coalition


Submitted
United Way of Suwannee
Valley, lead agency for the
Homeless Services Network
of Suwannee Valley, was
awarded a Department of
Children and Families Of-
fice on Homelessness Chal-
lenge Grant in the amount
of $60,000. The grant will be
used to address the needs
of the homeless populations
in the area.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley Homeless Coordina-
tor Jennifer Lee stated,
"Preparation of the Chal-
lenge Grant is a significant
amount of additional work,
particularly considering the
amount of funds a coalition
may receive. However, the
agencies participating in
our local homeless coalition
appreciate any amount o]
funds they can receive to '
further their efforts."
Vivid Visions will receive
$14,333 for shelter renova-
tions and furniture. Jennie.
Lyons, executive director of
Vivid Visions, Suw\ annee
County's state certified do-
mestic violence center, said
"Vivid Visions has worked
very hard to expand our
shelter's capacity to better
meet the needs of victims of
domestic violence. Shelter
renovations expanded the
emergency shelter, and
these funds will assist with
completing these renova-
tions. This grant differs
from most in that no match-
ing funds are required of.
the recipient agency."
The projects include
$4,000 for United Way of
Suwannee Valley to sup-
port the homeless coali-
tion's efforts to conduct the
annual HUD-mandated


homeless point-in-time sur-
vey.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley also will receive
$8,000 to support the
Homeless Management In-
formation System also re-
quired by HUD. The sys-
tem provides community
coordinated case manage-
ment, which allows multi-
ple agencies serving the
same individuals to coordi-
nate their plan of assistance.
Utilization of the system is
mandated by both HUD
and the State of Florida for
local homeless coalitions to
receive funds and for indi-
vidual coalition participat-
ing agencies to receive,
grant funds.
Catholic Charities will re-
ceive $14,333 to maintain A,
Hand Up Center homeless
drop-in program. The pro-
gram provides short-term
shelter stays, state identifi-
cation cards and birth cer-
tificates, medications, food,
personal hygiene products,
showers, laundry services,
mail services, bus tickets,
clothing and referrals for
additional community ser-
vices.
Another Way will receive
$14,333 in support of trans-
portation staff for victims of
domestic violence and sexu-
al assault and their children
who are using the domestic
violence center's shelter.
CDS Family and Behav-
ioral Services will receive
$5,000 for furniture and
shelter necessities. Formerly
known as Comer Drug
Store, the agency's North-
west Shelter plans to use
the funds toward the pur-
chase of beds and linens for
the agency's Lake City resi-


dential shelter facility that
provides services to home-
less male and female youth
aged 10-17.
The State of Florida
homeless coalition staffing
grant, received by United
Way of Suwannee Valley as
the recognized lead agency
for the local homeless coali-
tion, was reduced signifi-
cantly for the state fiscal
year 2007-2008 budget,
making any additional-
work the office assumes on
behalf of the community
agencies serving the home-
less an additional burden to
the United Way office.
"We have just kicked off
our 2007-2008 community
fundraising campaign with
a goal of $680,000," said Joe
Flanagan, general campaign
chair. "The funds the Unit-
ed Way affiliated agencies
receive as a result of the
campaign become for most
of our agencies matching
funds for grants. It is ab-
solutely essential to the
agencies to receive both
grant funds and communi-
ty funds."
United.Way of Suwannee
Valley is a community im-
pact and fundraising orga-
nization that uses volun-
teers. on all levels to identify
unmet community needs
and seeks to alleviate those
needs through initiatives
and the funding of 23 affili-
ated health and human ser-
vice agencies.
United Way of Suwannee
Valley serves as the lead
agency for the Homeless
Services Network of
Suwannee Valley, which
serves the counties of
Hamilton, Columbia,
Suwannee and Lafayette.

have been inconceivable back then. There
were no policemen in or around the
schools, there wasn't wanton property de-
struction, profanities weren't heard up and
down the hallways, and the farthest
thought from a student's mind was to
curse or assault a teacher.
Much of what's seen today is a result of
harebrained ideas and a tolerance for bar-
baric behavior. Kathleen Parker cited such
an example in her May 16 syndicated col-
umn. The case concerned teacher Elizabeth
Kandrac, who was routinely verbally
abused by black students at Brentwood
Middle School in North Charleston, S.C. A
sample of the abusive language: white b-
-, white m- f- white c--, white
ho. Despite frequent complaints, school of-
ficials did nothing to stop the abuse. They
told her this racially charged profanity was
simply part of the students' culture, and if
Kandrac couldn't handle the students'
cursing, she was in the wrong school. Kan-
drac brought suit alleging a racially hostile
work environment, and the school district
settled out of court for $200,000.
People with such a tolerant mindset are'.
in effect saying that blacks are not to be
held to civilized standards of .conduct and
academic expectations that might be en-


Fhts struggle
forced for others. That's a disgusting and
debilitating notion. I guarantee you that
years ago, such nonsense would not have
been tolerated, and a person making ex-
cuses for barbaric behavior by black stu-
dents would have been considered a lu-
natic,
What has been allowed in predominant-
ly black schools is nothing less than a be-
trayal of the struggle paid with blood,
-sweat and tears by previous generations to
make possible the educational opportuni-
ties so long denied blacks that are being
routinely squandered today. Blacks who
lived through that struggle and are no
longer with us wouldn't have believed
such a betrayal possible.
There's enough blame to go around for
each to have his share: students who are.
alien and hostile to the education process,
parents who don't give a damn, and the
education establishment and politicians
who accommodate and excuse this tragedy
of black education.

Lady Trojan Volleyball


Submitted by Sue Allen

On Thursday, Sept. 27,
the Varsity Lady Trojan
volleyball team defeated
the Lady Bulldogs from
Taylor County to finish
the season's district play
in third place. The final
scores were 29-27, 25-7,
and 25-10. After a slow
start the Ladys put it all
together and won the sec-
ond two games handily.
Leading the way was
Kendall Newsome with 13
kills, two blocks, one dig
and three aces, and Dee
Thomas -with four kills
and six aces. Other nota-
bles were Katy Burnam
with four aces and new-
comer Stephanie Oliver
with two kills.
The JV game was can-
celed by Taylor County so
their team could get back
for their homecoming
bonfire celebration. The
JV Lady Trojans finished


their district play on Sept.
18, versus the Cowgirls
from Madison County. It
was a very exciting game.
After losing starter Blake
Daniels to the varsity
team, the girls really
stepped it up and lost a
close one 23-25, 25-15,
then 10-15. Offense was
their strength with Brooke
Burnam leading the way
with five aces, followed
closely by Shelby Wills
with four acres, and Mor-
gan Belote and Britney
Lambert with three aces
each.
Both teams really have
made a lot of progress and
are exciting to watch.
They traveled to Mayo on
Oct. 1, and to Suwannee
on Oct. 2, and will play
Jefferson County on Oct.
9. The ladies will be re-
turning home for their fi-
nal night, which is also se-
nior night on Oct. 16 ver-
sus a tough Lafayette


County team.
This year seven players
on the varsity team will be
graduating, making this
senior night even more


special. We'd like to invite
you to our final home
game on Oct. 16, to sup-
port both the JV and the
Varsity teams.

White Springs






By Johnny Bullard


Sunday was a beautiful
day one of those heaven-
ly early autumn days sent
by the good Lord
himself. What a wonder-
ful day for homecoming at
historic Swift Creek Unit-
ed Methodist Church,
north of White Springs. I
sang "Precious Memo-
ries" accompanied
by Beverly Davis, who al-
ways does an outstanding
job with the music. We en-
joyed a rousing song ser-
vice led by Wilbert Alt-
man, and we all enjoyed
the inspirational sermon
given by Rev. Bill Peeler.
I especially enjoyed my
visit with Irene, Kevin,
Cindy, and Mallory Mor-
gan, Mildred Morgan
Miller, Terry and Cathy
Erixton and family, as
well as Carolyn Cannon,
Skip Lawrence, Butch and
Dylan Smith, Tommy,
Mildred and Joey Pound,
and Gaynelle Greene, all
of White Springs. It was a

and children hurrying
about, excitement, great
door prizes, collaboration,
tidings of joy, smiling faces
- Where am I? Heaven? No,
it is the Middle Grades Par-
ent Night at Hamilton
County High. School!
On Sept. 25, final prepa-
rations began right after the
end of the school day. The
custodial staff was busy
setting up tables and equip-
ment for the big night for
parents and families. The
Food Service Department
was busy getting the serv-
ing line ready. Board Mem-
ber Damon Deas and son,
Zach were firing up the
grill while myself and other
staff worked diligently to
add the final touches and
display the many, many
door prizes.
I presented Mr. Starr,
principal to more than 300
attendees. Mr. Starr deliv-
ered a resounding welcome
and acknowledged the
Middle Grades Team and
my cohorts for a job well
done. Mrs. Phyllis Harris,
Dean, introduced herself
and recognized the other
deans (who could not at-
tend due to football prac-
tice). Ms. Harris explained

new school rules and re-

sure parents have a clear
understanding.
. Teachers in all subject
matters, elective classes
and organizations spoke
briefly concerning their
class requirements and ex-
citing things going on in
their classes right now. Par-
ents also picked up some
good FCAT tools to prac-
tice for more success.
The group really enjoyed
participating in a short
Spanish lesson with Span-
ish teacher Karine Sanchez.
They practiced the phrases
in Spanish, "How are you?"
and the response, "Fine,
thank you."
Parents enjoyed perfor-
mances by the HCHS Cho-
rus, the band's drum line
and the SWAT Stompers.
Mr. Glover presented a pro-
ject produced by one of the
students in the Broadcast
Communications Class.
The Culinary Art's baked
cupcakes and Mrs. Rachel
Selph's sheet cakes were a
sweet addition to our meal.
Excitement filled the
cafeteria when the door

Thanks to so many won-
derful business partners
and community persons,
we had 40 terrific gifts for
parents and they were so
grateful.

COURAGE! October is also
drug awareness month. It
takes COURAGE to say NO
to drugs and I am in high
hopes that we have many
young people who are
courageous and will inspire
others to be courageous as
well.
Congratulations to the

The Special Olympics Hamilton Stompers got a glimpse of
what it would be like to be NBA stars, if only for a da\.
when the Orlando Magic gave the team a full day of VIP
treatment on Saturda\, Sept. 22. The Orlando Magic built
their annual Select-A-Seat event for season tcket holders
around the Stompers to raise awareness about, the
team and its trip to the Summer World Ganmd in
Shanghai. China, and to announce the newl\

ple in the district.
Conley was born in
Monticello, where her ma-
ternal grandfather served
as the Chief of Police for
many years. Sid Soule, her
father, was transferred to
the Florida Power (now
Progress Energy) station
located in Jasper in 1967
and the family moved
here. Conley lived in
Jasper until she married in
1977 and moved back to
Monticello.
Johnnie Soule, Conley's
mother, worked at. the
Jasper City Hall as City
Clerk for many years. Con-
ley said when she was
growing up, she was very.
aware of the amount of
time and level of dedication
it took to work in local gov-
ernment.
"Years later, I learned
first hand how much dedi-
cation it took when I was
elected to two consecutive
terms as Clerk and Treasur-


er in Monticello," Conley
said. "Now, after four years
as Mayor, I'm even more
convinced that no one ever'
enters public service for the
money, but rather to make
people's lives and commu-
nities better."
Ten workdays one in
each county in the district -
have been scheduled. Con-
ley began her day at the
H&F Restaurant at 5 a.m.
frying bacon and making
toast. While the breakfast
items were still on the
stove, she helped prepare
the large amount of food
needed for the buffet.
"Except for the occasional
chat with an old acquain-
tance, I worked side by side
with the other employees
and they treated me like
one of the gang. And that is
exactly what I was hoping
for. The whole idea of my
'Side by Side' workdays is
to gain insight into the
everyday lives of the peo-
* ple in District 10, and
there's no better way to do


it than to spend a day doing
their jobs," ; Conley ex-
plained," 1
Conley pointed to her
Democratic Party back-
ground as the reason for the-
"Side by Side" workdays.
"The Democratic Party
has always represented or-
dinary people and working
in ordinary jobs will ensure
that I am familiar with their
concerns,". Conley said.
"There is no better way to
learn what people are
thinking about than to walk
a day in their shoes."
She believes the most
critical need in the district
is economic development.
and jobs that are compati-
ble with the lifestyle of the
area.
Conley wants the people
of Hamilton County to
know, "We need good de-
velopment and decent pay-
ing jobs, but we should
make sure growth and de-
velopment don't sacrifice'
the values and character of
this part of Florida."

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Have you noticed the
new sign on the Chamber of
Commerce building site
downtown? Maybe it has
been there for a while, but I
usually look for information
there and just noticed the
change this week. It looks
so good. Watch it for up-
coming events and to keep
in touch with people, places


and things happening in
our area. Thanks for whoev-
er made this possible.
The fair is today with a
pig sale this evening. There
will also be a barbecue, (no
connection with the two).
The barbecue will be good,
and hope the sale will be
well attended. The Jasper
News is sponsoring a dog

to Los Angeles. Sept. 26,
they left and flew to Beijing,
China, for four days, before
arriving in Shanghai, China
on Oct. 1. Kalinda wrote, "I
want to thank Hamilton
County and thesurround-
ing area for all your sup-
port. This was a dream
come true for these young
men that they will never
forget. Thanks for every-
thing." I will get the email
address from Kalinda so get
in touch with her or with
me and you can track their
schedule.
All the above mentioned
occasions are putting
Hamilton County in the
minds of so many people,
and let others know
(whether they even know
where we are) that Hamil-
ton County "is the place to
be," hope Dr. Floyd will not
mind my using his words.
You may be tired of hear-
ing about my birthday,
some people I wanted to
mention who were here for
the get-together at Dr. Ben
and Leigh Ann's home on
Saturday evening who
would not be able to be here
Sunday, were special to me
and to my family. My sister
and brother-in-law, Martha
and Mike Gibson, Crystal
River, came and could not
be here Sunday, but we
were able to visit with
them. Their son, Sam, came
by to see me on Saturday
morning on his way to his
work in Toledo, Ohio; his
brothers Jim and Cam are
inspectors at nuclear plants
and are in South Florida
and could not get away.
My family is small but they
were here, so many of my
cousins are older and not in
good health but we were in
Touch over the weekend.
Others who were here on
Saturday evening, from out
of town were: Wade's
brother John, his daughter

North Florida Awaken-
ing, a crusade to be led by
Rick Gage of Go Tell Min-
istries, is in the early stages
of planning. Rick Gage will
be the featured speaker, on
Tuesday, October 9 at 7
p.m. at the Columbia High
School Auditorium in Lake
City. A group of dedicated
lay people and concerned
business owners of the
North Florida area have be-
gun preparing for an antici-
pated life-changing cru-
sade. Pastor Robert Sulli-
van of Mt. Carmel Baptist
Church and Pastor Lonnie
Johns of Christ Central
Ministries are issuing a spe-
cial invitation to all local
churches and pastors to at-
tend with as many of their
congregation as possible.


They are asking business
owners, community leaders
and members to attend and
work side-by-side to impact
positive changes in our
communities. Come and be
a part of putting "feet" to
concerns about the perils
that today's growing com-
munities face.
In 1986, Gage walked
away from a promising ca-
reer coaching football at
Texas Tech University and
surrendered his life to full-
time evangelistic ministry.
A few years later he be-
came the founder of Rick
Gage Ministries. He has
been conducting evangelis-
tic events around the world
and has seen tens of thou,
sands make commitments
to the Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Air exchanger provides



relief for asthma sufferers


Kelly Jones has had to deal with the wheezing and
shortening of breath from her asthma condition ever since
she was born. Unfortunately she is not alone as more than
20 per cent of American families have a family member
who suffers respiratory problems or allergies.

Each year, more and more people are being treated for
asthma and allergy symptoms. It is no coincidence that
asthma cases have increased by more than 100% over the
past 20 years.

The fact is worsening asthma cases have coincided with
the emergence of the indoor air quality problem. As the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns, indoor
air quality can be 100 times worse than outdoor pollution.

Continuous exposure to contaminants and allergens, like
dust, dust mites, hair and pet dander, and cigarette smoke
can cause a variety of symptoms such as headaches, chronic
fatigue and eye; nose or throat irritation. It can also
aggravate asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems.

Faced with her worsening condition, Kelly's mother,
Laura Jones, looked into finding an indoor air quality
solution for her seven-year-old daughter. Rather than


buying a portable air purifier, Jones chose a more complete global
solution: a Venmar air exchanger with HEPA filtration, after doing
some research and consulting with his family doctor.

"The air exchanger enables us to control the quality of the air in
every room in the house, not just certain rooms, by filtering and
adding fresh air throughout our home," added Jones.

But there's more to an air exchanger than simply changing the
air, explained Gerry Gagnon, Product & Market Manager for
Venmar Ventilation. "It reduces excess humidity by expelling
moisture-filled air outdoors several times a day. This can help
eliminate mould and bacteria-friendly environments, make
unpleasant odours disappear and protect buildings from humidity-
related damage."

According to Gagnon the best way to achieve optimal air quality
in your home is to use HEPA filtration with antimicrobial
protection, combined with air exchange. Together, they create the
ultimate system for people who want a clean and healthy
environment. HEPA filters capture 99.97% of all dust and particles
as small as 0.3 micron (1 human hair = 150 microns). They can'
help reduce allergy symptoms, asthma, recurring colds and
persistent coughs. In fact, HEPA filters are so effective; they're
used in hospital operating rooms and now in the Jones home.

WAITING FOR THE ANSWER


By Pam Campbell

J /ow many of you like to wait? Waiting is
not something that most people seem to
enjoy doing. In this life we wait for many
things, simple things like the traffic light
to change, the cashier to hurry in the gro-
cery store, we may wait for someone to get ready, for a
teacher to notice us when we are raising our hand, or for our
boss to acknowledge a job well done or maybe we are just
waiting for a much anticipated package to arrive in the
mail.

Of course there are other kinds of waiting, like waiting
for the results of a medical test, waiting for a grade on a im-
portant paper you wrote for school, or many other things
that need a solution. Mark 10:27 says "And Jesus looking
upon them saith, With men. it is impossible, but not with
God: for with God all things are possible." Whatever you
may be waiting for, whatever you may need, whatever
looks impossible, remember with God all things are possi-
ble. As you wait, stand on his promise, he will never fail
you, never.

I know that many times people are waiting for answers to
so many questions, like when, how, why, what and where?
There are always times when people have to wait on an-
swers to big things, like should they move, or should they
take a trip, what should they do to help someone else, ques-
tions, questions and more questions. Life is full of them and
for most of us we must wait for the answers. Is patience
your best quality? I know that it is not mine, I always want
to know how in the world things are going to turn out, wait-
ing is always a challenge. God has this to say about pa-
tience. Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he
turned to me and heard my cry."

Sometimes people work really, hard and, think that the
waiting is finally over and the answer has come, only to
find out that the wait has really just begun. Have you ever
thought that things were finally turning out the way you
thought they should? How many times in life have you tried
to try to fix a problem and then found that you could not fix
it.

A friend of mine told me that her mom always gives her
this advice. "He (God) has to remind me that he is in charge
and all things will work best for the glory of God." My
mom says to me sometimes that I must seem to forget that
God already knows about the problem I am trying to fix.
God reminds us in Matthew 6:8 that he really does know
what we need. "Do not be like them, for your Father knows
what you need before you ask him."

Sometimes good people work very hard to get ahead, they
do all the things that they know they are supposed to do and
things start heading in the right direction. Then all of a sud-
den, it seems to fall apart. Through no fault of their own the
answer seems to disappear. Where do you turn when things
fall apart, when the things you have worked so hard for
don't seem to be enough? Many .times in this world we will
try to do the right thing and we will listen to advice from
those we believe hold the correct answers, but sometimes
the only answer we should be looking for is God's.

Have you ever watched people that you love dearly face

sorrow, or a big disappointment in their lives? You want to
help them you want to make it all better, like 6 mommy or
daddy that fixes something for their little child, only you
find that most of the sorrows and big disappointments of
life are not so easily solved as say, fixing a child's broken
toy, or comforting a little one from a bad dream. Not being
able to help makes you feel so sad, so useless, it is like a
feeling of hopelessness. You search for answers, some way
to change the circumstance, to fix whatever the sorrow or
problem.

Maybe someone that you love is lonely and you try to.
spend as much time as you possibly can with them, you
take them with you wherever you can, but yet you alone are
not enough, they need someone more. You try to look for
someone to befriend them, for things for them to go to, or
things to do, you work to do more with them, but you feel
so sad, as you know that they are still lonely. You love them
so much and want to take their sorrow, their sadness and
loneliness away, but you know that only God can. God tells
us in Isaiah 43:4 "Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall
answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am..." You
see the Lord is there with them, and as they call on him, he
will help them in their loneliness, and supply all that they
need.

You watch someone that you love worry over many
things, jobs, health, family, finances, and more. They seem
to have more work to do than any one person should have,
so many responsibilities and never enough time, they de-
serve time to relax, but are always busy, working hard,
helping others, doing all they, can. You try to encourage
them, try to help with what you can, but really there is not
too much that you yourself can do. You can give them your
love and support and pray that is enough.

You watch someone that you love work very hard for
many years, they are very talented, they succeed in the hard
work that they do, if they are like someone that I have been
watching they never complain, they are always the one to
make someone else smile, the one that finds good in what-
ever situation they may be in, they deserve the very best
and yet,: many times the best is not what they receive. It
breaks your heart because you love them so very much,
you want to make things right, to make things work the
way they "should, and yet the more that you try the more
you find that all you can really do is be there as the en-
couragement and the support that they really need. You feel
so helpless, your mind seems to go off in every direction,
not able to concentrate, you just want to find an answer to
fix the problem, to make things turn out the way that they
should be for this one that you love. Here again we need to
remember to let God fix the problem.

Maybe you worry about your health, about the aches or
pains that bother you so, you try to forget about them, to
work through the pain, to tell yourself it is all okay, when
at times you can't help wonder, is something wrong? James
5:14-16 "Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders
of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in
the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will
make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he
has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins
to each other and pray for each other so that you may be
healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and ef-
fective." If you think you may be sick, or you just don't

feel well, listen to God's word and do as he says.

Many times the stresses that we all face in our lives, es-
pecially worry can cause us to feel like we may be ill, or
may actually cause us to become ill, but sometimes the
symptoms may just be the result of the stress and we may
really be just fine. No matter what the problem, no matter
what the situation that someone you or someone that you
love is going through, all your worry and all your fear will
not fix the problem. For all the times that we are worrying
about ourselves or people that we love, we need to spend
that time and energy in prayer. In Matthew 6:34 it says
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow.
will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its
own." When we worry, we are not trusting God with the
problem and we are stressing ourselves out even more.
Nahum 1:7 says The LORD is good, a refuge in times of
trouble. He cares for those who trust in him," You see the
Lord is our place of refuge when we are having troubles, he
is good and he always cares about us as we trust in him.

Maybe your worry today is about someone's health,
someone that you care about very much. You see that per-
son getting sick more often, you see they don't get well as,
fast, you worry that they are not doing well. You want to
make them well, but you know that only God can do such
things. So you must remember to pray for them. When we
get fearful, when we wonder what to do read God's word,
Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of
whom shall I be afraid?"

Maybe the answers that you are waiting for concern your
whole life, your very being, you may not feel that you can
go on another minute without an answer. Listen to what
your heavenly father is saying to you in Jeremiah 33:3
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great
and mighty things. \ which thou'kno\%'est not." You.see God
has greater plans for 3 ou than any thing that youico-dld pos-
sibly have ever thought about, trust him today and with all
of your tomorrows.

Many of us really need to ask God for his wisdom. Peo-
ple are always wanting to know when will the answer
come? We wait and wonder, and many times we wonder
why? Why did this have to happen, or why doesn't God an-
swer me now? James 1:5 Is a wonderful scripture showing
us how to have God's wisdom. "If any of you lacks wis-
dom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all with-
out finding fault, and it will be given to him."

When you are waiting and it seems that the answer will
never come, you will find hope in Psalms 42:11. "Why art
thou cast down, o my soul? And why art thou disquieted
within me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him,
who is the health of my countenance, and my God." and
also in Psalm 31:24 "Be of good courage, and he shall
strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord."

When we wonder why, when, where, what, or how, re-
member that God has it all in his control when we follow
in his path, trust in him to answer. "Trust in the Lord with
all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Keep waiting, keep trusting, God al-
ways answers.

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

WAITING


By Pam Campbell
I wonder how many kids love to wait? Do you love to wait for your turn when you
are playing a game? How are you at waiting to see if you are the winner in a contest?
Do you get impatient waiting for Christmas to come? If your teacher doesn't see you
raising your hand, do you get upset if you have too wait long? Do you like to wait in
long lines? If you go somewhere with your mom and dad and they are talking, do you
ever get tired of waiting for them to get done? Is waiting fun? You probably don't think
that waiting is fun, most people do not like to wait. Do you sometimes think that noth-
ing is ever going to turn out the way you want it to? Sometimes maybe you pray for
something or somebody and the answer seems like it will never come. God speaks to
us in the Bible in Mark 10:27 "And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is im-
possible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." Whatever you may be
waiting for, whatever you may need, whatever looks impossible, remember with God
all things are possible. As you wait, and you pray, stand on his promise, he will never
fail you, never.
I imagine most of you kids have asked either your parents, teacher, or someone else
the questions; why, when, what, how, and where? You know, why do I have to do that?
Are we there yet? There are all kinds of questions in this world that we live in. Most of
them have an answer, but sometimes we must learn to wait for the answer. We have to
learn to have patience. God tells us about waiting patiently in Psalm 40:1 "I waited pa-
tiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry."
Have you ever thought that things were finally turning out the way you thought they
should? How many times in life have you tried to try to fix a problem and then found
that you could not fix it. Sometime's kid's have problems with their schoolwork or their
grades, or maybe they don't live in a happy home, they might not even have a real
home. Many times kids try to fix things on their own, maybe try to make their grades
better, but they really need help, or maybe they try to make their home happier by be-
ing extra good because they think that will make everyone else be nicer and get along,
*but the truth is, only God can fix the problems in our lives no matter how old we are.
SHe can send the right help to us or to the people that need it. God is the answer to every-
thing and we need to learn to wait for his answer.
A friend of mine told me that her mom always gives her this advice. "He (God) has
to remind me that he is in charge and all things will work best for the glory of God."
My mom says to me sometimes that I must seem to forget that God already knows about
the problem I am trying to fix." Do you forget that God wants to fix your problems for
you and that he already knows all about them?
Sometimes good people work very hard to get ahead, they do all the things that they
know they are supposed to do. Then all of a sudden, it seems to fall apart. What do you
do when things that you are trying to do fall apart? Do you just give up, or do you keep
trying and pray and ask for the answer about what to do?
Have you ever watched people that you love have something happen in their life that
has made them very sad? You want to help them, you want to make it all better. You
search for some way to fix the problem. You need to remember that God is the one with
the answer, ask him and wait for him to show you what to do.
* Maybe someone that you love is lonely and you try to spend as much time as you pos-
sibly can with them. Maybe you see another child that seems lonely, it would mean so
much to them if you smiled at them. You see the Lord is there with them, and as they call
on him, he will help them in their loneliness and he may even have you be a friend to
them.
Sometimes you may see someone that you love worrying about many things. You can
give show them your love and pray for them. Maybe you can offer to help them with
some of their work, or give them a hug to let them know you appreciate all their work.
You watch someone that you love work very hard, they never complain, they are al-

ways the one to make someone else ,smile, the one that
finds good in whatever situation they may be in, they re-
ally are hoping for things to turn out so that they can help
others, they need things to work out right. You wonder
how can I make it happen? Here again we need to re-
member to let God fix the problem.
Maybe you worry about getting sick or hurt, or someone
in your family getting sick or hurt. The Bible tells us to
pray.
Do you ever worry about things? When we worry, we
are not trusting God with the problem and we are stress-
ing ourselves out even more. Nahum 1:7 says The
LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for
those who trust in him," You see the Lord is our place of
refuge when we are having troubles, he is good and he al-
ways cares about us as we trust in him.
When you are waiting and it seems that the answer will
never come, you will find hope in Psalm 31:24 "Be of
good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye
that hope in the Lord."
When we wonder why, when, where, what, or how, re-
member that God has it all in his control when we follow
in his path, and trust in him to answer. 'Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own under-
standing. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall
direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Keep waiting, keep
trusting, God always answers everyone, even kids!

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


Dear Classified Guys,
Although I've been living in the same
house for the past 15 years, I've tried
to kqep in touch with the real estate
market by reading the classified sec-
tion. I've watched the market go up
and I've watched the market go
down, but the advertising lingo has
always been relatively the same.
That is, until recently. I started to
look at the ads again and saw some-
thing that doesn't make any sense.
The ads are listing bathrooms as 1.1,
3.2 and so on. I must admit it has me
confused. At first I thought it was a
typo and even sent you one as a
joke. Then I saw it in an ad placed by
a realtor. It certainly appears too
often to be a mistake. I
know what a 1/2 bath is, but '\
I'm not sure what would ,---
constitute a ".1" bath. At
40 years old, I shouldn't be
that far out of the loop.
Cash: We can understand your con-
fusion in reading the ads. If a 1/2 bath
has a sink and a toilet, What's in a ". 1"
bath... a hand towel?
Carry: Advertising abbreviations
can sometimes be difficult to interpret.
When people pay by the word or letter,
they like to keep it short. Although, I
think classified ads are far easier to

understand than most cell phone text
messages.
Cash: UGTBK. It's so EZY!
WUCIWUG. (You've got to be kidding.
It's so easy! What you see is what you
get.)
Carry: Fortunately, the notations
you're seeing are much simpler to
explain than that.
Cash: A half bath, as you know, is
used to describe a partial bathroom and
can be written as "22" or "2.5".
However, as houses become larger in
size, the notation doesn't account for
more than a single half-bathroom.
Instead, some people choose to use a


period to separate the number of full-
baths and the number of half-baths.
Carry: In other words, 2.1 would be
read as 2 full-baths and 1 half-bath.
Likewise, 3.2 would be 3 full-baths and
2 half-baths. Maybe it would have
been a better idea to use a dash or a
colon to avoid any confusion. But as
you've probably seen in real estate ads,
things sometimes need to be deciphered.
Cash: For instance "Cute", "Cozy"
or "Charming" usually describes a
small house. Or better, "Great
Commuter Location" really means "a
beautiful apartment right next to the
train tracks"!-

Keep it Short
Complicated abbreviations used to be
mostly found in classified ads.
However, with the popularity of the cell
phone, text messaging has taken short-
hand to a new level. To help you get
through the encryption, here's the 411
on some of the more popular ones.
BLNT ... Better luck next time.
CULA ... See you later alligator.
IDK ....... I don't know.
N1 ......... Nice one.
NVM .... Never mind.
P911 ...... Parents coming into room alert.
UW ....... You're welcome.
ZUP ...... What's up?
:-($)....... Put your money where your
mouth is.
Living in Style
As the sizes of homes increase, so do
the amenities that go with them. While
many families survive with a single
bathroom, houses today are built with
many more. According to the U.S.
Census Bureau, more than 95% of all
new homes (nearly 1,570,000) built in
2006 have 2 or more bathrooms. The
statistics vary by region, but the north-
east seems to lead the nation with nearly
68% of their new homes having at least
2V2 bathrooms.

Private Matters
My recent experience at an open
house for a commercial property
proves why I like pri% ate restrooms.
I was in the public restroom wash-
ing my hands when a woman came in
to use one of the stalls. A moment
later she spoke out to me. "So how
are you doing"'" I was taken aback.
but it seemed impolite not to answer.
"Just fine," I replied.
Then she asked. "How's Nour
walk-through going?"
"Preny good." I again answered
hesitant.
That's when I realized I was the
strange one. From behind the stall
door she said, "I'll hate to call you
back. Some woman keeps talking to
me. (Thanlks to Sandra J)

By Tom Carr
CNHI News Service
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -
Mark Hoban has enjoyed role-
,playing and tabletop war
games for years. Then, one
day, he opened a shop that
deals with his passion. Hoban,
38, owns and operates
Mayhem Games in Traverse
:City, where he sells the games
and people come in to play
,war games on some of the
tables he has set up there."
This is as much a social
hangout as it is a store," Hoban
said. "But that's what it's all
about." He and others are
living what many people
dream about: turning a hobby
into a job." Helping people
with their hobbies has just
been a lot of fun," he said.
Rich Bannatyne knows the
.feeling. He sold and fixed
computers before he opened
Nothing But Spoits9' a card and'
collectibles shop, about six
years ago." I'm a little skinnier
than I was six years ago, but
I'm happier," he said. "You get
to a certain point in your life
where money is not
:everything," he said, adding
that his other job was "all-
consuming Bannatyne started
out as a kid collecting cards
and had owned sports
memorabilia shops before, but
'also worked other jobs at the
same time. The sports
collectible industry has a
reputation as appealing mostly
to adults who spend big money
on it these days. But
Bannatyne said he wants to
make sure he offers items
children can afford, so they
.may grow to love the hobby as
much as he does. He
encourages parents to let their
kids do with their baseball
cards what they want and not
feel they have to treat them
like fine china." I see kids who
can't see over the counter
when they started coming here
and now they're 6-foot-4," he
said. Like Hoban, he mostly
enjoys talking to his
customers." These people
know within a short period of
time I love what I do," he said.
On the other hand, a hobby
doesn't always remain a hobby
once it becomes a job. Mike
Luther, who owns Luther's
Pheasant Hunting in Mesick,
used to hunt pheasants. He
started raising them for himself
and friends to release and hunt
in the early 1980s and then
started selling them to other


hunt clubs. Now he just raises
them for the people who hunt
at his own preserve. After
doing it for so long, he'd rather
hunt other birds and game
animals in his free time."
Having a pheasant jump up in
front of me and cackle, there's
not the excitement anymore,"
he said. Luther also raises
whitetail deer for clients to
release and hunt. While he still
enjoys deer hunting, he doesn't
hunt those he raises. And he
still gets a kick out of watching
others hunt his birds."
Watching these people getting
excited, that's what's fun,"
Luther said. Bill Winowiecki,
who owns Watta Bite Charter
Fishing in Glen Arbor, said it's
essential for him to love what
he's doing when he takes
people out on the boat." The
-guys who are enjoying it have
happy customers," he said.
' Winowiecki started his
business while being laid off
from a manufacturing plant.
He's working there now and
fitting the charter service in
around that job." You can't
make a living out of charter
fishing unless you're one of
the big guys," he said. Chris
Miles of Traverse City makes
money on two of his hobbies,
charter fishing and stringed-
instrument repair. He runs
Miles Fishing Charters and
Miles Vintage Instruments, as
well as working as a
warehouse foreman for another
employer." Sometimes it gets a
little hectic," he said. "If I
work all day, I don't always
want to go into the garage and
work (on instruments), but I
do." Miles is mostly self-
taught in instrument repair,
having started as a child doing
things for people he knew like
replacing pearl inlay that had
come out of a guitar or other
instruments. Now, when he
gets stumped by a job, he can
turn to the Internet and watch
instructional videos or contact
other experts. Hoban also
started playing war games and
role-playing games when he
was about 12.He knew he
wanted to make a business out
of it "as soon as I was old
enough to want to do
something when I grew up,"
he said. Hoban has owned his
business for less than a year
and said it's "scary"
sometimes having his life tied
up in a business." But loving
what I do gives me the courage
to deal with these things," he
