Cindi Foreman is the new Tourism and Economic Development Executive Director


"- indi Foreman is the new Tourism and
Economic Development Executive Direc-
'.'i| tor, but promoting Hamilton County is
not new to her. Within weeks of moving
-i here three years ago, Foreman became,
staff assistant to then Executive Director Bob Poor.
When Nancy Oliver assumed the position of Exegu-
tive Director, Foreman continued as staff assistant. In
addition to those duties, Foreman worked for the
Hamilton County Development Authority (HCDA)
and the, Chamber of Commerce.


In memory

of our veterans
Representative Ander Crenshaw and former
graduate William Snipes will be the guest speak-
ers at a Veterans' Day ceremony at the Hamilton
County High School in Jasper. The program will
be hosted by the middle school grades on Mon-
day, Nov. 12. at 11 a.m.
Rep. Crenshaw will present Leroy Erixton of
White Springs several awards for his service in the
Korean War, including the Purple Heart, National
Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal
r( rccwith Bronze Star,
^ j Combat Infantry
SfBadge 1st Award., and
1 I United Nations Service
Medal. He will also pre-
C n- sent certificates of special
congressional recognition to
.7. other local veterans.
The public is invited to at-
tend this ceremony to honor
all our veterans. For more infor-
mation contact Paula Williams at
792-6540.


Foreman is excited about
her new position, which is
to serve as a liaison be-
tween the county and busi-
nesses and to make sure
people have a positive im-
age of the county.
"There are some good
things here," Foreman said.
"We should be proud of
them."
While Foreman wants to
encourage new businesses
to locate in the county, she
also wants to promote the
existing businesses. She
wants business owners


and customers to feel they are important to the com-
munity.
Foreman sees diversification of employment as the
key to- economic growth in the county. The county
offers incentives, such as tax credits and refunds, to
businesses who locate in Enterprise Zones areas
that are specially designated for economic develop-
ment. Foreman wants to help the county develop
into a healthy community with economic stability,
good schools and healthcare, and historical and nat-
ural areas preserved,
"We need jobs for our children and grandchildren,"
she said. "Not lots of low-paying jobs, but quality
jobs with good pay. Our children should be able to
stay in the county and make a good living if they
want to."
As part of her new responsibilities, Foreman is
working with other economic development organi-
zations to improve Hamilton County and surround-
ing counties. She is also still working with the
HCDA and the Chamber.
".If everyone pulls together, we can accomplish so
much more," Foreman said.
The Tourism and Economic Development office is
located in Suite 4 in the Hamilton County Court-
house Annex, located at 1153 US 41 NW in Jasper.
To contact Foreman, call 792-6828 or email hamilton-
codev@alltel.net.

and other potentially toxic
arts and crafts items. Expo-
sure to traces of these items
may result in only minor
effects;' however, repeated
and/or longer exposures
can result in serious side ef-
fects.
Cooler weather also sig-
nals the start of the cold
and flu season. During this
time of the year, a variety
of medicines are in the
home, especially cough
and cold medications. Keep
these and all medicines, out
of the reach and sight of
young children, particular-
ly children younger than
six years of age who are at
the highest risk for poison-
ing hazards.
The Florida/USVI Poi-
son Information Center -
Jacksonville responded to
over 55,000 calls in 2006
with 48% of these calls con-
cerning poisoning emer-
gencies for children under
the age of six years. Among
the top five common causes
of poisoning emergencies
were household cleaning
substances and medicines.
Below are some common
poisoning hazards. Take


tants or antihistamines,
which can cause agitation
or drowsiness. Others may
contain aspirin or aceta-
minophen which, in the
wrong amount, can cause
an upset stomach, sleepi-
ness, nausea, vomiting,
thinning of the blood,
seizures or liver damage.
Additionally, some of these
medicines contain alcohol
.that can cause drunken-
ness, low blood sugar lev-
els or even seizures in, chil-
dren.
Mercury glass ther-
mormeters should only be
used as directed, and bro-
ken glass thermometers
should never be used. Even
though the form of mer-
cury that is contained in
this type of thermometer is
not a form that is well ab-
sorbed the clean up process
can be time consuming.
Your Poison Center recom-
mends not to vacuum bro-
ken mercury thermometers
but to call the center to as-
sess the situation.
Chewable vitamins are
flavorful and. colorful, but
swallowing large amounts
can cause upset stomach,
nausea and vomiting.
Swallowing large amounts
of vitamins containing iron
can cause significant toxici-


carbon monoxide. Flu-like
symptoms may be experi-
enced fatigue, sleepiness,
headache, nausea and
vomiting. Your gas-fueled
heated appliances should
be inspected for proper
ventilation and operation.
To protect your family, in-
stall carbon monoxide de-
tectors in your home if you
have any gas-fueled appli-
ance.
. Plants and berries
abound during the fall sea-
son and extra caution
should be taken to mini-
mize poisoning hazards.
Label all plant containers
and learn the names of
plants in and around the
home. Berries from flower-
ing plants may fall to the
ground and extreme care
should be taken to prevent
a child from swallowing
the berries. Symptoms to
observe, in children swal-
lowing berries are mild
mouth and skin irritation,
and an upset stomach.
Fertilizer is also com-
monly used during the fall
season. Keep children and
pets out of fertilized areas.
Symptoms to look for in
the case of accidental poi-
soning from fertilizers in-
clude nausea, vomiting
and diarrhea.
Remember to call the
Poison Information Center
at 1-800-222-1222 in case of
a poisoning emergency.
The Poison Information
Center is open daily, 24
hours per day, and skilled
healthcare profespio-inals
will immediately respond
to poison emergencies con-,
cerning these, and other,
potential fall poisoning
hazards;

Dear Editor,
I would like to tell you the story about
my porch. You can see it in the picture
above. Nothing fancy, just a porch with
some stuff on it. It is the stuff that got me
into trouble.
Before May 14, my porch was messy. On
May 14, we had a fire in our house. As a re-
sult of the fire, my porch got even messier.
Some of the stuff that got burned got left on
the porch. Some of the construction materi-
als that we used to repair our house after
the fire got left on the porch. It was about
this time that someone saw my porch and
didn't like it and reported it to the local
code enforcement official, Staff Sergeant
Michael H. Price. He came by my house
and told me there had been an anonymous
complaint and he gave me 30 days to clean
up my porch.
So here is my dilemma: Do I clean every-
thing off the porch and essentially agree
with the local Porch Police that they have
the right to tell me I cannot have anything
on my porch or do I leave what I think I
should be able to leave on my porch? I did
the latter.
My feeling is that if you voluntarily give
up your rights because the city government
tells you to, what rights will they go after
next? I did not want to concede my right to
have something on my porch. I tried to be
reasonable about how much stuff I left. I
looked around Jasper and saw what every-
body else had on their porches. I wrote Of-
ficer Price and told him my views on the
matter, that I did not think the city should
be able to make me remove everything
from my porch. I thought he'would find
my porch to be acceptable. I was wrong.
He wrote me back that I had to remove
the rest of my stuff. I did not remove the
stuff. Now I have been presented with a no-
tice to appear before the code enforcement
board next week. I apparently am the only
resident of Jasper who is being required by
law to have a bare porch. I have ridden
down almost every street in Jasper in the-
last couple of months and I see that many
of you feel the same as I do you think you
have the right to have some stuff on your
porch (or under your carport, or just in
your yard).

I have seen many porches and yards with
more stuff than mine. Yet you have not
been contacted by the Porch Police. How
do I know?? Because you still have the stuff
on your porch (or your carport or yard),
don't you?? I have seen no great flurry of
activity around Jasper as everybody is busy
cleaning off their porches.
I think you can see why I feel that I am
being unfairly singled out. I am apparently
having to live up to a higher standard than
everyone else. I think, by definition, that is
discrimination. I cleaned up my porch (the
cleanest it's been in a long time) but I left
some stuff on it to show what I thought
was alright to have. If nobody else is being
cited for similar amounts of stuff, then my
situation is clearly unfair. If I had the same
stuff on my porch months ago, before the
fire, I feel sure I would never have been
called before, the code enforcement board.
So, why now?-?
I have lived and worked in Jasper for the
last thirty-five years and I have always
tried to treat everyone honestly and fairly. I
think it is only reasonable to expect the
same from everyone, else, especially our
public officials.
My porch will never be featured on the
cover of House Beautiful magazine, but it
should also not be on the agenda at the
code enforcement board meeting.
Because one person complained anony-
mously, my family has had to endure regu-
lar surveillance by the police/code enforce-
ment officer who comes monthly with a
camera with a zoom lens in hand to photo-
graph anything he can find in my yard that
he can call a "code violation." These activi-
ties border on harassment. To those of you
who have encountered similar treatment
by the code enforcement officer, I urge you
to stand up for your rights because if you
don't you will lose them. You can start by
finding out what our officials are doing.
According to the Florida Government in
the Sunshine Law, any citizen can request
copies of government documents, even
copies of Jasper city government records.
If you have any -comments for me, you
can reach me at 792-2434 or email me at BR-
Dan@aol.com.

Dear Editor:
Recently my daughters took me to
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center in
White Springs to attend the annual Quilt
Show. The quilt displays were well orga-
nized, with names of the talented creators
and the themes, all handmade and beauti-
ful.
What made this outing such a pleasant
day for an old lady (85) in a wheelchair
were the new sidewalks and handicap
ramps that join all the park facilities across
the open areas! It was easier for me and for
my caregivers, with access to all of the art
and craft buildings and museums.
Give credit to the new park manager, Mr.
Ben Faure, for this improvement! The peo-
ple in motorized chairs, plain wheelchairs,
canes and walking supports, need not hesi-
tate to spend hours at the Park. Go any day
of the week and enjoy the river; the craft
shops, the many plants and flowers, the
people, the music! Take a break in your dai-
ly routine and enjoy the peaceful atmos-
phere. You'll feel better!
Doris J. Odom, White Springs

Dear Editor,
This speech was presented to the Town of
Jennings on Aug. 7. Let this be a reminder
that God is not finished with Jennings:
In the days preceding July 4, 1776,
Thomas Jefferson wrote what would be-
come his greatest endeavor The Declara-
tion Of Independence. Not only did he es-
tablish our rights to life, liberty and the pur-
suit of happiness, he expressed the ideas
that lay in the hearts and minds of the peo-


ple. Government was instituted, yet the
ability to abolish or alter it was also set
forth. He was aware. He was involved. He
was a leader. We need to pride ourselves in
our community through awareness, in-
volvement, and leadership.
We can be aware of our surroundings in
a meaningful way. I ascertain the need for
drug prevention to be our greatest concern
along with fire prevention and community
safety. These concerns might be prevented
through an after school program headed by
community volunteers.
The involvement of everyone is what
makes a community alive and prosperous.
We can begin these tasks by offering a quar-
terly clean-up day. We can establish a Jen-
nings Pride Day consisting of food, fun, and
fellowship. During Christmas we can be the
talk of Hamilton County with The Light of
Jennings as we all adorn our homes with
wonderful decorations and, of course,
lights. Though, our greatest task would be
the" refurbishing of our main street.
As leaders, we are obligated to respect
the positions of authority. For those who
our truly concerned about our community
we need to establish a positive attitude. We
need to work through any necessary reform
with the utmost concern for all involved. As
leaders in the community, we need to ac-
cept each others diverseness and forgive
prejudices. The future is largely unknown,
but one thing is for certain and that is Jen-
nings should have a future. Through posi-
tive community awareness, involvement,
and leadership we can secure that future.
Samantha Prueter, Jennings

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


First I want to wish our
friend, Mildred Shepherd, a
very happy birthday. She
will be celebrating her 102nd
birthday on Thursday, Nov.
8. Mildred was away from
Jasper several years, teach-
ing school but returned to
Jasper several years ago and
has been a familiar lady
since "coming home." Most
recently, Mildred attended
the Centennial Celebration
of the Woman's Club of
Jasper. With a smile on her
face, she was an inspiration
to all who were able to visit
with her. Have a happy day,
Mildred, we love you.
The Relay for Life Plan-
ning Committee will meet
on Monday, Nov. 16, at. 6
p.m. It is not too early to get
started, the dates roll around
quickly and your help is
needed. Penny. Mickler
would like to hear from you
with any help you can offer.
As usual, my message is that
there is probably not a per-
son in this county who has
not been affected in some
way, either yourself, family
member, loved one or
friend, you are needed to
help make this Relay a suc-
cess, hopefully to push along
the drive to find a cure, or
better yet to stop this dread-
ed disease.
There are many sick folks
in our community who need
our prayers. I hesitate to list
the ones I know. I am afraid
I will miss someone. If you
have someone you would
like to put on a list in the pa-
per if you will let me know
and we will get them on a
prayer list.
Most recently we have
learned that Rev. Hill (Broth-
er Hill) who has ministered
to so many of us, would be
having surgery on Wedirs-
day morning. By this time
we know that we will have
learned that he is "up and
about" by now, take it easy,


w e
miss you but want you well.
Others that we have recently
been made aware of are Cliff
Jones, surgery at South
Georgia Medical Center in
Valdosta, Ga., Aubra Young
now at Suwannee Valley
Nursing Center, and his wife
has health problems. I know
there are many who need
our prayers, keep us posted.
The election is over. We
hope our City will settle
down, "be thankful for what
we do have, do our part to
make it a better place to live,
do what each of us can do for
the betterment of our com-
munity, "help us to change
the things we can (that need
changing) accept the things
we cannot change and the
courage to know the differ-
ence)," this is part of a quote
in the Serenity Prayer and I
do not have the exact copy
on hand, but know that we
need to stand together.
Where there is a need, do
what we can do, let us go
forward, we are fortunate to
live in our county, so many
blessings, count them. Many
of you have lived here all of
your life and have a great
heritage. Having lived here
only 48 years, raised my
family here, and having
lived in several other places,
Itknow how blessed I have
hben. Although I have been
hippy everywhere I have
lived, I know that this is
were we were led to come,
hov blessed we have been.
Yes, there are things to be
donm, things may not always
be tle way we would like for
them to be, if not, do what
you cm to fix the if it will be
benefidal to all concerned,
see wlat you feel needs to be
done aad ask how and why,
then d&it, make sure it is for
the right reason. There is no
perfect place on this earth.
We can only do so much,
making sure it will be better


for everyone, not our per-
sonal wants. Stop and think
of the good things about our
County, why are we glad to
live here? I do not have the
time or the space to give all
of my reasons, do you? The
election is over, another
privilege we have, did you
vote? This was only in the
City of Jasper, let's make our
cities and county a better
place to live, treasure our
present and move forward
together.
I know you will not forget
the Lions Club Pancake Su-
per next Tuesday at the
Hamilton County School
Complex. I hope you re- '
member the good times we
enjoy, our chefs' famous
pancakes and all that goes
with them, and the hours of
fellowship with people we
may not see often. Tickets
may be bought from any
member of the Lions Club.
We also understand they are
available at Roosters, across
from the Post Office. This is
an event we look forward to
every year, catching up on
old friendships and making
new ones. I know we will see
you there.
I go to Valdosta twice a
week and I do not go inter-
state. I like to go through Jen-
nings to look at the school
bulletin board and other
things I have noticed and
will ask some questions. It
seems Jennings now has pri-
vate garbage pickup. The
containers are all alike and .
very neat. Also, I asked
about signs saying PAWS
and understand it has some-
thing to do with care of ani-
mals. If you have more infor-
mation call me and let me
know.
Thanks to those of you
who send information from
Jennings. I would like to
have more, the Jasper News is
for all of our county.
I go to Valdosta every
Tuesday and Thursday at
different times, but will defi-
nitely try to keep my phone
clear so you can leave mes-
sages, let me hear from you.

Finesse fishing in shallow water


By Skeet Reese
Pretty much everyone
takes to the water with a sin-
gle goal in mind: to catch
fish. Some people use artifi-
cial lures, other use bait; but
within these two types of
fishing lie a multitude of op-
tions for getting more fish in
the boat.
This time of year, a lot of
the bass are in shallow wa-
ter for a couple of different
reasons. First, they are chas-
ing shad, which are spawn-
ing in the backs of coves.
Second, as the nights get
cooler, the surface tempera-
ture of the water is also cool-
ing down. So, when the sun
does rise, the first water to
be warmed the most is the
shallow water. There's a lot
of ways to fish the these
shallow bass this time of
year, but one that is some-
times overlooked is a finesse
approach.
When most bass anglers
think of shallow-water bass
fishing, most of them think
of shallow-running
crankbaits, big Texas-rigged
plastic worms or flipping a
jig. All are very effective, but
these techniques have used
for so long, why not switch
it up?
Two of my favorite finesse
techniques for catching shal-
low fish are the drop shot
and the wacky rigged soft
bait. Most people think of
the drop shot as a deep-wa-
ter technique, but by adjust-
ing the distance in between
your hook and your weight
you can fish this bait ex-
tremely shallow.
For the drop shot, I use a


seven-foot medium-action
spinning rod and a spinning
reel spooled with eight-
pound Fluorocarbon line.
Fluorocarbon line is impor-
tant in this technique be-
cause it is less visible under-
water. I like a small octopus
hook or wide-gap hook tied
to the line with a Palomar
knot. Leave about 8-10 inch-
es of line below your hook
and attach a n-ounce drop
shot weight.
Cast the baits near areas
likely to hold bass in am-
bush (around structure, pri-
mary depth changes) and
shake the rod tip. By shak-
ing the rod tip, you keep the
bait in the strike zone but
are moving it just enough to
make it look alive. If you
don't get bit, drag the
weight a few feet and start
over.


Another effective method
for shallow bass in dear wa-
ter is a wacky rigged soft
bait. The wacky system al-
lows you to keep the bait in
the strike zone longer and it
creates a lot more action
with the bait. If you rig a
bait straight and you twitch
it once, it is going to easily
move 2-3 feet away from
any. fish within the strike
zone. With the wacky sys-
tem, it creates a lot more re-
sistance in the water. It
pusles the water more and
makes the worm kick, giv-
ing you a lot more move-
ment out of it. That extra
movement out of a little
worm creates a lot of strikes.
For me, my wacky rigging
equipment consists of a 7-
foot spinning rod with 8- or
10-pound Fluorocarbon
line. As far as hooks go, I use


a wacky rig hook: a short-
shank, wide-gap hook with
round bends. Just stick the
hook point through the eggs
sack (or thickest portion) of
the bait and weight the bait
with tungsten nail weights,
but you could even use an
actual finish nail if you have
trouble finding nail weights.
This time of year is a great
time to go after bass. There
is a lot less boat traffic and
the bass are largely congre-
gating wherever there is an
easy meal. Try a little finesse
the next time you go chasing
fish into the backs of coves
and see how slowing down
and downsizing your tackle
can result in more strikes
and bigger fish.

Animal Shelter must close

due to director's illness


Kerry Gavronsky, Di-
rector of Puppy Place
CARES, a non-profit ani-
mal shelter, must close
the shelter due to per-
sonal illness. Gavronsky,
who has been rescuing
dogs and cats for five
years, needs to find
homes for five more
dogs.
Pictures of the dogs
can be seen at Lake City
Humane Society Adop-
tion Center. The dogs
who need to be adopted
include a Doberman fe-


male named Baby, a Blue
Heeler male named
Piper, two Border Col-
lie/Blue Heeler mixes -
both males named Pad-
die and Noel, and a
hound mix male named
Jessie. All of the dogs
have been spayed or
neutered and are on
heartworm prevention
and have current rabies
shots. These dogs are in
danger of being "put
down" if they are not
adopted.
To get more informa-


tion about the dogs, visit
Lake City Animal Shel-
ter Adoption Center or
call Gavronsky at 397-
3163.

Go ahead, run like a girl- or walk


by Peggy Boston
"Run with friends or run
alone. Run on a .beach, a
lake, or a trail. Run on a
treadmill. Run when the
sun rises. Run as the sun
sets. Run at 11:11 a.m. Run
at 11:11 p.m. Run at mid-
night the start of the day.
Run near midnight the
end of the day. Run start-
ing as a group that meets at
one location, runs separate
routes, and meets up after-
wards. Run in a race with
other people. Run in your
own time trial. Run on a
brand new course. Run on
a memorable course. But
most of all, just ... run!"
The above is actually a
quote from a newsletter I
received when I signed up
to run for World Run Day.
Runners from all walks of
life, all over the world will
celebrate running :and
charitable giving on Sun-
day, Nov. 11. I've commit-
ted to run five miles that
morning and hopefully be
home in time to shower
and still make it to church
on time; otherwise, I'll be
sweaty on the pew next to
you! If you are interested,
register at www.active.com
or www.runday.com.
I love to run, can you
tell? I may run a little slow-
er than the average bear,
but I just love to get out
there and move! It makes
no difference if I walk
some, jump and touch


leaves, or even dance a lit-
- tie to the beat of my iPod.
I am fortunate because I
can run; I am fortunate be-
cause I am a runner. I am
the best runner I know how
to be and the best runner I
am willing to be. I am what
I am and can choose to live
my life frustrated by what I
am not or learn t6obe grate-
ful for what I am. I alone
am the standard bearer.
Running enhances my
life slow or fast, walking,
jogging or sprinting. I will
not allow my thoughts to
force an obstacle into be-
coming just another area of
disappointment I decide
and you should too.
"Town Walkers" are a
group of people, right here
in downtown Jasper, call-
ing you to join them in liv-
ing an active lifestyle. Their
walks/runs begin and end
at the doors of Git Ript
where you can choose a
partner, path and pace.
Once you get moving, you
never know how far you
will get. Upon your return,
there is always a cool
smoothie or ice-cold water
bottle with your name on it
right next door at the Cof-
fee Shop. Enjoy our town,
meet some new people, ex-
perience the beautiful fall
weather up close and per-
sonal!

Running safety tips


Running is one of the best
things you can do for your
body and mind. It tones your
body and helps you lose
weight, conditions your
heart and lungs, and im-
proves your mindset. It's a
great stress-reliever, too! Af-
ter a run, you not only have
more energy and feel better
physically, you are also more
confident mentally and emo-
tionally.
While you should always
be alert and cautious of your
surroundings while running,
it's wise to follow some safe-


ty guidelines for further pro-
tection. Here are some run-
ning safety tips from the
Road Runners Club of
America (RRCA) to help
keep you running on track
safely.
Don't wear headsets. Use
your ears to be aware of your
surroundings. By wearing
headphones, you lose use of
an important sense: your
hearing.
Always stay aware of
what's going on around you.
The more alert you are, the
less vulnerable you are to an


attack.
Carry a cell phone or
change for a phone call.
Know the locations of call
boxes and telephones along
your regular route.
Trust your instincts about
a person or an area. React on
your intuition and avoid a
person or situation if you're
unsure. If something tells
you a situation is not "right,"
it isn't.
Alter or vary your running
route; run in familiar areas if
possible. In unfamiliar areas,
such as while you're travel-


ing, contact a local RRCA
dub or running store. Know
where open businesses or
stores are located.
Run with a partner or with
a dog.
Notify someone about
when and where you are
running. Tell friends and
family of your favorite run-
ning routes.
Avoid unpopulated areas,
deserted streets, and over-
grown trails. Stay away from
unlit areas, especially at
night. Run clear of parked
cars or bushes.


Carry identification or
write your name, phone
number, and blood type on
the inside sole of your sneak-
er. Include medical informa-
tion. Don't wear jewelry.
Ignore verbal harassment.
Use discretion in acknowl-
edging strangers. Look di-
rectly at others and be obser-
vant, but keep your distance
and keep moving.
Run against traffic so that
you can watch out for ap-
proaching cars.
Wear reflective material if
you must run before dawn


or after dark.
Teach yourself how to
quickly memorize license
plates or identify characteris-
tics of strangers.
. Carry a noisemaker
and/or OC (pepper) spray, if
it is legal in your area. Get
training in self-defense and
the use of pepper spray.
Call police immediately if
something happens to you or
someone else, or if you notice
anyone or anything out of
the ordinary. It is important
that you report any incidents
immediately.

HAMILTON HEALTH MINUTE:

Is this going to hurt? Or feel good?

Have you ever worked out in the yard for hours or did some heavy
cleaning or lifting and the next day feel like you've been hit by a Mack
truck? And you wonder, "What in the world did I do?" Well, you're
not alone and if you're like me, you probably felt like you've found
muscles you didn't know existed. And you also might realize that the
soreness that you experience might feel sorta good. Well, there's a
reason for that. Positive energy endorphins. Anytime you exert
yourself, you are releasing endorphins that actually make you feel
good. Energy is distributed throughout your body resulting in blood
moving more freely. And as far as the soreness goes, when movement
occurs and your body is pushed beyond normal exertion, you're
muscles are the first to let you know. You will feel this almost every
time you exert yourself if you are a beginner. Working those muscles
will also increase your metabolism which helps burn calories. So being
sore after working out never felt so good!!

By Johnny Bullard


The 55th annual Florida
Folk Festival will begin on
Friday, Nov. 9, at 10 a.m.
This is always, as Ed Sullivan
would say "a really big
shew," for all of us here in
White Springs and the sur-
rounding communities. I
hope you will come down
and enjoy the performances.
Please don't call me and ask
me about tickets. I am not
volunteering this year except
for the reception on Friday,
and I am not getting tickets
for anyone who doesn't
come and volunteer. You
will pay only a bit more for
an admission to the Festival
than you would for a movie,
and you cannot compare the
two for the amount of enter-
tainment available.
I wish everyone a wonder-
ful Veteran's Day weekend
and do be sure and remem-
ber our veterans on this spe-
cial day. Veterans, we appre-
ciate you and we salute you,
not only on Veteran's Day
but throughout the year.
God bless you and God bless
the USA.
'Our sympathy is extended
to the family of Mr. LF "Son-
ny" Carver, Jr., White
Springs. A lifetime resident
of the White Springs area,
Mr. Carver was the son of the
late Mr. and Mrs. LF Carver
Sr. (Lawrence and Virginia)
who, for many years owned
and operated Carver's Gro-
cery in White Springs. He
was married to Mrs. Kitty
Carver for 56 years, and they
had two children, Larry,
White Springs, and Diane,
Wellborn. Five grandchil-
dren and three great-grand-
children also survive. Funer-
al services for Mr. Carver
were conducted on Sunday,
Nov. 4, at Riverside Ceme-
tery, White Springs. Rev.
Ron Thompson, pastor of
First Baptist Church, White
Springs, served ag officiant.
Dees-Parrish Funeral Home,
Lake City, was in charge of
all arrangements. Sonny was
a very big hearted person
with a keen sense of humor.
If he picked at you or teased
you, you knew he liked you.
He will be missed by many


in our area including me. He
was a beloved friend, and
there was never a better
neighbor. The family has the
prayers and heartfelt sympa-
thy of our community.
The woods are full out
near our house of all the
sports persons in pursuit of
the white-tailed deer. I wish
everyone a happy and safe
deer season. I hope you bag a
big buck, but please exercise
caution while hunting. Hap-
py hunting to everyone.
I popped into a small shop
on Monday in downtown
Lake City called "Your
Heart's Desire." What a little
jewel box Christmas deco-
rations, novelty items, beau-
tiful high-end purses, just a
little treasure trove that will
make you feel better. If you
have the opportunity, stop
by and patronize this little
shop. It is just north of the
Desoto Drug Store. You'll
love it. I know I did!
LT Ogburn opened his
business in the old Taglione's
Building last week. LT offers
about the same menu that
Taglione's offered delicious
sub sandwiches, old fash-
ioned hand dipped ice cream
and desserts. Stop by and
see LT in the historic Jay
Smith House across from
Munchie's Food Store.
Rhett Bullard attended a
dinner for the Volusia Coun-
ty Democratic Executive
Committee last Friday, Nov.
2, in Daytona Beach. We ap-
preciate all of Rhett's out-
standing contributions for
White Springs, Hamilton
County, and our area.
White Springs United
Methodist Church and First
'Baptist Church, Jasper, both
celebrated Homecoming on
Sunday. I know that there
were many memories and
much laughter, joy, and
good food at each one. The
ministries of both of these
* churches continue to mean
much.
There was a wonderful
Health Fair in front of the
Hamilton County Health
Department on Saturday,
Nov. 3.1 I did not avail myself
of the opportunity to attend,


but I could see that the event
was well attended and coor-
dinated. We appreciate the
efforts of everyone who
worked to make this event
happen. God bless you.
The many wonderful
African American churches
of the White Springs area al-
ways participate in the Flori-
da Folk Festival by prepar-
ing and serving some of the
most delicious food in the
world. New Bethel AME,
Sweet Home Baptist, New
Jerusalem Baptist, Beulah
Baptist, St. Luke's Freewill
Baptist, and Zion Temple
Holiness Churches, are all
represented in our annual
Florida Folk Festival. To all
the members of the church
who work so hard to make
these fundraisers worth-
while God bless you. We
appreciate you.
Rev. Phillip "PJ" Jackson
and his congregation from
Jennings, serve up some of
the most lip smacking barbe-
cue ever at the annual Flori-
da Folk Festival. I know this
year will be no exception.
The St. Paul House of Prayer
will be turning out great bar-
becue. I can almost taste
those wonderful ribs and
chicken right now.
Folk Festival time is like a
reunion for our family.
Guests will begin pouring in
on Wednesday and will con-
tinue through the week -
Bobby, Gini, and Dawson
Hicks of Tampa, Ken -and
Nancy Buchanan of Loxa-
hatchee, Doug Gauss and
Howard and Carolyn Par-
due, Tallahassee, Frank and
Lisa Thomas of Lake Wales,
Jerry and Lynnis Mincey of
Winter Haven, Stuart and
Irma Pacetti of St. Augustine,
Kerry Waldron of Adel, Ga.,
and I could go on and on. I
look forward to visiting with
everyone at the annual Flori-
da Folk Festival.
In closing, I dedicate this
column in honor of my good
friend and outstanding
Florida folk singer, Bobby
Hicks. I love Bobby and no-
body in the world could
have written a song that
touches the heart of a true
Floridian more than Bobby's
"I'm Florida." So, dear
friend, here's to you and re-
member today, tomorrow
and always "I'm Florida -
need I say more I'm Florida
- need I say more."
Have a good week, and
happy Veteran's Day,
Hamilton County
- I love you.

News

By Jonathan Banks
This is Jonathan Banks
reporting the Trojan News.
Hamilton County High
was very lively last week.
On Wednesday, Oct. 31,
from the time I walked
through the school gate 'til
the time I left, I experi-
enced the horror of witch-
es, ghosts, 'and just the
plain weird. The whole
school decided to dress up
in some form or fashion on
Halloween. Mrs. Hobbs
was a wicked, warty witch;
Mrs. Fenneman was a
stealing pirate and student
William Hughes was the
weird and ugly Freddy
Kruger. We had several
ghosts and vampires that
day as well. The whole day
was very invigorating; I
think everyone enjoyed
seeing the amazing cos-
tumes and the unusual
scary looking students.
The sports kicked off last
week, also. Basketball prac-
tice began and so did the
spirit. Coach Murphy, the
head basketball coach said,
"I think the team will be re-
ally tough to handle and
that we are going to try to
continue building off the
success of last season." He
also added, "The team and
I appreciate the support
from the community and
the school."
I think the team and their
coaches are looking for-
ward -to a great season.
Also, the HAMCO Varsity
and Jr. Varsity soccer teams
began their season Tues-
day, Oct. 30, with an away
game at Fort White. Both
teams put up a good fight
and succeeded in different
ways.
The Varsity Ladies start-
ed their season out great
with a first game win of 3-
2. The Jr. Varsity Ladies
didn't win but held off Fort
White by tying the game 0-
0. The soccer teams also
competed against Suwan-
nee County on Thursday,
Nov. 1 at home. The JV
team tried their best but
lost, 0-3. The Varsity girls
also played fierce but lost,
1-5.
I think both teams got off
to a great start and I
bumped into some team
members who agreed. JV
player, Rebecca Hunter
said, "Although this is my
first year, I enjoy playing,
and the year has been good
so far." Varsity player, An-
gela Wilson wanted to add,
"I think the season is going
to go well, since we've al-
ready won one major
game." To sum it up I think
we can expect a great sea-
son from our winter sports.
In addition, school year-
books are on sale for $35.
This year's theme is "Let's
Celebrate." The price of the
yearbook will increase in
December, so I encourage
everyone to purchase one
soon. I am anticipating the
yearbook to be really awe-


some this year. If you
would like to purchase a
yearbook contact Abbey
Taylor at HCHS or by
phone at 792-6540.
Well, that's all for this
edition of Trojan News. I
hope you enjoyed. Once
again, I'm Jonathan Banks,
and until next time
"Go, Trojans!"

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE PROJECT


Florida Atlantic University will host nationally televised debates


Florida Atlantic University in
Boca Raton has been selected to
host two live debates featuring the
major Republican and Democratic
candidates for President. The an-
nouncement was made by Decision
2008: Before You Vote, a partner-
ship that includes Leadership Flori-
da, the Florida Press Association
and the Florida Public Broadcast-
ing Service Inc., which has joined


with NBC News/MSNBC to pro-
duce the debates that will air LIVE
on MSNBC on Jan. 23 and 25,
2008, before a nationwide audi-
ence.
"We at FAU are thrilled by the
opportunity to host debates of such
compelling national significance,"
said FAU President Frank T. Bro-
gan. "In addition to fulfilling our
educational mission to inform


Florida's electorate, we look for-
ward to also educating millions of
others as we roll out the red carpet
and welcome these presidential
candidates and the national spot-
light that accompanies them to
our campus."
Wendy Abberger, president of
Leadership Florida, said the Deci-
sion 2008: Before You Vote debate
series is expected to generate a na-


tional television audience in the
millions in what is shaping up to be
a key week in the presidential pri-
mary season. In addition, the part-
nership will produce two one-hour
pre- debate specials on Florida
Public Broadcasting TV and radio
stations that will feature a panel of
Florida journalists who will pre-
view the contests.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the Flori-


da Legislature propelled Florida to
the front of the electoral process by
moving up the date of the Florida
primary from early March to' Jan.
29. As a result, Florida voters have
a new, highly visible and critical
role in the national race for presi-
dent.

emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans

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.

CAN YOU COUNT ALL OF YOUR BLESSINGS?


By Pam Campbell



J' -ere we are again in that wonderful time of
year, fall! This month brings us such a
joyful holiday, Thanksgiving. A time to
join with family and friends for a big feast and a chance to
spend time together, a time to count your blessings. I know
that we all have something to be thankful for, you may not
have everything the way you want it or have everything that
you want, you may not even have much at all, but if you are
reading this article you have several things that I know of to
be thankful for, you know how to read, that is definitely a
blessing! If you are reading, then you have an even greater
blessing to be thankful for; it means that you are alive! I
wonder how many blessings each of us can count? I am
quite sure that we could never actually count them all.
Some of the blessings that we have are easy to think of,
food, clothes, family, friends, a home, jobs, school, maybe a
car, toys, and pets. But how many millions of blessings do
we not even realize or think about that are blessings from
God? Proverbs 10:6a "Blessings crown the head of the
righteous." The Lord loves his children and loves to pour
out his blessings on us.
Most of us probably have sung the hymn "Count Your
.Blessings" many, many times. The words of this great hymn
Were written by Johnson Oatman, Jr. Count Your Blessings
was first published in 1897 in the songbook, "Songs for
Young People." This song was considered to be Johnson
Oatman's finest song out of 5,000 that he penned. I am sure
that this man would be amazed that 110 years later, it is still
found in most hymn books and song books and sung in
most churches. This is a wonderful song that always seems
to be so perfect for Thanksgiving, although it is a song that
should be sung year round, as we should always be
counting our blessings!
Let's take a look at the words to the song "Count Your
. Blessings." I
Count Your Bles_.ug."
"Verse .
When upon life's billows You are tempest tossed, When you
are discouraged Thinking all is lost, Count your many
blessings Name them one by one, And it will surprise you
What the Lord hath done.
Well I imagine that all of us have felt the way it is described
in the first words, like we were being tossed around in the
trials of life, feeling discouraged and thinking that it was
hopeless. But like the verse says even if you are at that
place, count your blessings, you will always be surprised at
what the Lord has done.
Verse 2 -
Are you ever burdened With a load of care, Does the cross
seem heavy You are called to bear. Count your many
blessings Every doubt will fly, And you will be singing As
the days go by.
When you feel overburdened, worried, have too much
stress, like you can't bear what you are going through, you
need to learn to count your blessings. Then the doubts that
come from the enemy, you know the ones that say you can't
make it, those doubts and worries will leave, and you will
have a song in your heart and mind.
Verse 3
When you look at others With their lands and gold, Think
that Christ has promised You His wealth untold. Count your
many blessings Money cannot buy, Your reward in heaven
Nor your home on high.
I know that when people start counting their blessings they
think of the ones like food, family, friends, clothes, you
know the normal things that we see around us. Many think
of the things that they own, and the money that they have as
their great blessings but this verse here is telling you that
land, gold, money, while they are indeed a blessing if you
have them, they are not the most important blessings. He
says here that we should count our blessings that money
can't buy,. our rewards in heaven and our salvation and our
eternal home in heaven.

Verse 4
So amid the conflict Whether great or small, Do not be
discouraged God is over all. Count your many blessings
Angels will attend, Help and comfort give you To your
journey's end.

In this last verse you see that no matter what the problem
or conflict, it doesn't matter if it is big or small, God is in
control of all of them. You should not get discouraged, he
has his angels with you, he will always help you, comfort
you and be there for you as long as you live.
Read the words to the chorus and get them into your mind
and spirit. Sing them aloud or in your mind, it is time to get
the words of this chorus into your mind and not forget how
blessed you really are.
Chorus:
Count your blessings Name them one by one. Count your
blessings See what God hath done. Count your blessings
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings See what God hath done.
This chorus is very simple, yet it has a powerful message
to us. If we will remember to count our blessings, to name
all that we can, we will see that God has done so much for
us that we will want keep on singing! When you are going
through some of the places that the song speaks of in the
verses such as discouragement, burdens, not enough
money, too much stress, conflicts and problems remember
to Count Your Blessings and God will help you, he will
bless you with what you need for the circumstances in your
life every time.
Yes, ThaAksgiving is a wonderful time to sing the hymn
"Count Your Blessings." Maybe your family can take a few
minutes this Thanksgiving Day to sing the hymn together
and spend some time sharing with each other about the
blessings that you are thankful for. If you are alone, sing it
to the Lord, he is there with you.
I was looking through a magazine as I was waiting. for an
appointment recently and saw a wonderful idea for families
to do for the Thanksgiving'holiday. I say families, but this
could be done with just you alone with the Lord, or with a
church group, a school, a gathering of friends and family,
with anyone that would like to have a fun way to count ,
their blessings or tell what they are thankful for. You take a
branch and put it in a pot with gravel or decorative stones
to make it stand up like a tree. Cut out leaves from
construction paper in fall leaf colors, such a orange.
brown, yellow and red. Punch a hole in the top of each leaf.
Put the leaves and some short pieces of yarn or string in. a
little basket or other container next to the branch tree. If
you want to you can even make a sign that says The
Blessing Tree, or Our Thankful Tree, or some other name
that you think of. On Thanksgiving Day and any other day
before and after the actual holiday that you have people
gathering, or you feel like adding a blessing, have each
person write what they are most thankful for, some of the
most important blessings that they can think of, especially
things from the past year that God has done. Everyone
writes the blessing or what they are thankful for on a leaf
and uses the yarn or string to hang the leaf on the branch
tree. It might be extra fun when you have a group gathered
to read some of the leaves aloud, so that everyone can
realize how great God's blessings are. When you have
family or friends gathered on Thanksgiving take time to
share some of God's blessings from the past year. Take
time to sing, and time to read God's word aloud. Take time
to pray together. Yes, Thanksgiving is a time to Count Your
Blessings!
When I look back over the past year, from last
Thanksgiving to. this'year, I truly see that the hand of God
has been at work so many, many times that I cannot count
all the blessings. You may have been sick and God healed
you, or injured and he made you well. You may have seen

him open the doors for a wonderful job, or he may have
helped you through a trying year, but you have come
through and have much to be thankful for.
Think about this, God blesses you in ways that you may
never have thought of, such as the automobile accident that
he kept you from being killed in, by things happening that
you thought were just annoyances that were making you
late. You know maybe a phone call right when you are
leaving, your car not starting, you can't find your keys, you
forgot something and had to go back, you couldn't find
something you needed and looked and looked for it, think
about it, God may have been using one of these things as a
blessing, as a way to keep you out of harms way. What
about the times the Lord has kept you from catching an
illness, or from falling or tripping, from eating something
that would make us sick or being harmed in some other
way. You see we can start naming our blessings, we can
count them and we should, we will be surprised at all we
can think of that-God has blessed us with and all that he has
done for us, but we will never know all of the blessings that
he does for us. If you are alive, if you are able to eat, talk,
do anything at all, be thankful! Your life is a big blessing!
Thanksgiving is also a wonderful time to not only count
our blessings, but to let God use us to be a blessing. There
are so many people that don't have many of the blessings
that some of us have. God would love it if we would share
some food with them, or invite them over to eat, maybe
you can take them a blessing basket full of foods, candy,
maybe a Bible or other book, small toys if there are
children, some flowers, whatever you think they could use
to help them realize that they to can count their blessings.
.I heard a story that I want to share just a part of with
you. A family was planning their Thanksgiving dinner and
decided to invite a man named Jim to be a part of their
family celebration. This man lived all alone and was not
too well off financially. Jim was so very happy to be
included in the families plans and came to dinner and fit
right in with the family as they all celebrated Thanksgiving
together. When he was getting ready to go home that
eveninging. the morn handed him a bag full of foodand treats.
Including a big candy bar for, him to take home with him.
He looked in the bag and smiled, and then handed it back
to the mom, and told her that he wanted her to give it to the
homeless man that he had heard the family talking about
during dinner. The mpm told him that she had already
made up a big bag for the homeless man, and they were
taking it to him yet that evening. Jim smiled real big and
said that he wanted the homeless man to have both, bags,
that the homeless man needed it more than Jim. You see
even though Jim did not have a lot, he knew that he still
had more blessings than the homeless man. They took both
bags to the homeless man and then he had blessings to
count, too. There are always people that have a need, there
is always someone that we can help, someone less
fortunate than ourselves. Make Thanksgiving a time to not
only Count Your Blessings, but to be a blessing to someone
else. You will find that when you give to others, you will
receive a blessing! 2Corinthians 9:7 says God loveth a
cheerful giver." Being a blessing is something we should
try to be all the year through!
This year on Thanksgiving Day, be sure tq count your
blessings, and also pray for the year ahead that you and
your family will continue to walk in God's blessings and
footsteps. So now I will ask you again, can you count all of
your blessings? I pray that you and your family will have a
very blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!'Pam

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

CAN YOU COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS?


By Pam Campbell

Hey Kids! Can you believe that it is already fall? It is almost time for Thanksgiving! A
time to join with family and friends for a big feast with delicious foods like turkey and
dressing and pumpkin pie! It is a chance to spend time together with your family, a time to
count your blessings. I know that we all have something to be thankful for. You may not
have everything the way you want it or have everything that you want, you may not even
have much at all, but if you are reading this article you have several things that I know, of
to be thankful for. You know how to read or you have someone that cares about you
reading it to you, that is definitely a blessing! If you are alive then you have a real big
blessing, life! I wonder how many blessings each of us can count? I am quite sure that we
could never actually count them all. Some of the blessings that we have are easy to think
of, food, clothes, family, friends, teachers, a home, school, toys, and pets. But how many
millions of blessings do we not even realize or think about that are blessings from .God?
Proverbs 10:6a "Blessings crown the head of the righteous." The Lord loves his children
and loves to pour out his blessings on you.
Most of you probably have sung the chorus "Count Your Blessings" many times. Let's
take a look at the words to the chorus of this song "Count Your Blessings." Read the words
to the chorus and get them into your head. Maybe you would like to go ahead and sing it
out loud right now!
Chorus:
Count your blessings Name them one by one. Count your blessings See what God hath
done. Count your blessings Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings See what God hath done.
This chorus is very simple, yet it has a important message to us. If we will remember to
count our blessings, we will see that God has done so much for us that we will want keep
on singing!
Yes, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to sing the chorus "Count Your Blessings."
Maybe your family can take a few minutes this Thanksgiving Day to sing the hymn
together and spend some time sharing with each other about the blessings that you are
thankful for.
I was looking through a magazine recently and saw a wonderful idea for families to do
for the Thanksgiving holiday. You take a branch and put it in a pot with gravel or
decorative stones to make it stand up like a tree. Cut out leaves from construction paper in
fall leaf colors, such as orange, brown, yellow and red. Punch a hole in the top of each leaf.
Put the leaves and some short pieces of yarn or string in a little basket or other container
next to the branch tree. If you want to you can even make a sign that says The Blessing
Tree, or Our Thankful Tree, or some other name that you think of. On Thanksgiving Day
and any other day before and after the actual holiday that you have people, gathering, or
you feel like adding a blessing, have each person write what they are most thankful for,
some of the most important blessings that they can think of, especially things from the past
year that God has done. Everyone writes the blessing or what they are thankful for on a
leaf and uses the yarn or string to hang the leaf on the branch tree. It might be extra fun
when you have a group gathered to read some of the leaves aloud, so that everyone can
realize how great God's blessings are. When you have family or friends gathered on
Thanksgiving take time to share some of God's blessings from the past year. Take time to
sing, and time to read God's word aloud. Take time to pray together. Yes, Thanksgiving is a
time to Count Your Blessings!
When I look back over the past year, from last Thanksgiving to this year, I truly see that
the hand of God has been at work so many, many times that I cannot count all the
blessings. You may have been sick and God healed you, or hurt and he made you well. God
may have helped you greatly in school, or he may be helping you now. Sometimes God
protects us from being hurt or even killed by having us go or not go somewhere at a certain
time. You see we can start naming our blessings, we can count them and we should, we
will be surprised at all we can think of that God has blessed us with and all that he has
done for us, but we will never know all of the blessings that he does for us. If you are alive,
if you are able to eat, talk, do anything at all, be thankful! Your life is a big blessing!,
Thanksgiving is also a wonderful time to not only count our blessings, but to let God use

I heard a story that I want to share just a part of with you.
A family was planning their Thanksgiving dinner and
decided to invite a man named Jim to be a part of their
family celebration. This man lived all alone and was pretty
poor. Jim was so very happy to come to dinner for
Thanksgiving. When he was getting ready to go home that
evening, the mom handed him a bag full of food and treats,
including a big candy bar for him to take home with him.
He looked in the bag and smiled, and then handed it back to
the mom, and told her that he wanted her to give it to the
homeless man that he had heard the family talking about
during dinner. The mom told him that she had already made
up a big bag for the homeless man, and they were taking it
to him yet that evening. Jim smiled real big and said that he
wanted the homeless man to have both bags, that the
homeless man needed it more than Jim. You see even
though Jim did not have a lot, he knew that he still had
more blessings than the homeless man. They took both
bags to the homeless man and then he had blessings to
count, too. There are always people that have a need, there
is always someone that we can help. Make Thanksgiving a
time to not only Count Your Blessings, but to be a blessing
to someone else. You will find that when you give to
others, you will receive a blessing! 2Corinthians 9:7 says "
God loveth a cheerful giver." Being a blessing is something
we should try to be all the year through!
This year on Thanksgiving Day, be sure to count your
blessings, and also pray that you and your family will
continue to walk in God's blessings and follow him. So
now I will ask you again, can you count all of your
blessings? I don't think that we can count that high! I pray
that you and your family will have a very blessed
Thanksgiving Holiday! Love, Aunt Pam

Debate


Continued From Page 1C

2008 project will occur on the
evening of Jan. 23, in advance
of Jan. 29 primaries in Florida
and South Carolina. The sec-
ond debate will occur two
days later on the evening of
Jan. 25. One week after the
Florida primary, voters in 24
states will go to the polls on,
Feb.'5, 2008 the night that
likely will determine the 2008
nominees to become the 44th
president of the United States.
Letters of invitation have
been sent to each of the major
candidates for president and
the Florida and national chairs
of the Democratic and Repub-:
lican parties. Organizers ex-
pect full participation, on ac-
count of Florida's pivotal im-
portance as a swing state


wielding 27 electoral votes
and because of the critical
timing of the state's primary
election.
"Florida Atlantic University
is a wonderful venue to host
the nationally televised de-
bates of Decision 2008:
Before You Vote, which will
provide voters here in Florida
and across the United States
with the opportunity to learn
more about the candidates and
issues in these two primary
contests," said Teala Milton,
chair of Leadership Florida
and chief public affairs officer
for JEA. "We're thrilled that
all Americans will have the
opportunity to tune in to these
spirited and substantive de-
bates."
Both debates will take
place on FAU's campus in


Boca Raton and will be broad-
cast LIVE on MSNBC and on
Florida Public Television and
Radio. Additionally, most of
the NBC affiliates in Florida
have expressed interest in
broadcasting the debates live.
The debate will also stream
live at msnbc.com. Further
information about the telecast
of the debates, including
times, moderators and format
will be announced at a later
date. '
"NBC News is pleased to
join with the Decision 2008:
Before You Vote partnership
to bring these debates
from the key state of Flori-
da to a national audience,"
said Philip Alongi, executive
producer of NBC News Spe-
cial Events. "We look forward
to working with such experi-


enced partners on this impot-
tant debate."
Marty Petty, chair of the
Florida Press Association and
publisher of the St. Petersburg
Times, said the partnership
promises to deliver Florida
voters dynamic, fair and rigor-
ous forums for the major 'an-
didates to present themselves
and their policy prescriptions
to Americans.
"Florida's newspapers have
a long and distinguished track
record of providing our citi-
zens the distinctive political
coverage and forums neces-
sary to ensure rich discourse
and engagement in the' demo-
cratic process. There has nev-
er been a more important time
for the citizens of Florida or
the country to participate. And
the Florida Press Association


is proud to help set the pace."
Indeed, Florida newspapers
will devote substantial space
to covering the races involved
and, through the Florida Press
Association, also will promote
viewership of the live
statewide debate series
through the donation of
prominent advertising space.
Jose A. Fajardo, chairman
of Florida Public Broadcast-
ing Service, and also president
and general manager of
WMFE in Orlando, said he
was confident that the critical
timing of the debates would
be a magnet to draw candi-
dates to participate and view-
ers to watch and listen.
"These candidates know all
too well how important Flori-
da is in selecting the next oc-
cupant of the White House,"

Dear Classified Guys,
I'll admit it, I'm a football fanatic. If I
have a free moment, I'll turn on the
TV to find any game I can watch. I've
even been known to call in sick to
work so I can watch a few games at
home. Granted it's not the most
responsible thing to do, but I am a
sports junkie. Recently, my wife
came up with what I thought was a
brilliant idea. She suggested that
with my enthusiasm I should be a
professional mascot. Now that's a
career I can get into! I was a mascot
for a season in college a few years
ago. I'd love to jump around the field
with the pros, but I doubt that's a
solid career choice. I'd figure you
have to know someone to get those
jobs. But since my wife is on my
side, do you think it's possible to
become a professional mascot or
is it just a daydream? It's
probably not a job I'm likely -^_
to find in the classified. -'--r
Cash: With your wife's support
almost anything is possible. Just
make sure she wasn't joking about the
idea before you make it your new career!
Carry: Despite their appearance on
the field, mascots are not all about fun
and games. You will have to put in ;

& Todd "Carry" Holze

some hard work to land your dream job.
Cash: Fortunately, there are all sorts
of opportunities to be a mascot. Almost
every team, from the NFL and NBA to
major and minor baseball leagues,
needs mascots. You may have to start
out in a lesser-known league to gain
experience for the big time.
Carry: While it does help knowing
someone to find a job, leagues like the
NFL do advertise for job openings,
including mascots, when a position is
unfilled.
Cash: It's estimated that only about
half of all mascots are full-time posi-
tions with salaries around $25,000 to
$35,000 per year. But if you're experi-


enced enough to work for a popular
franchise, then the salary could be more.
Carry: If you are serious about being
a mascot, then you should create a
resume that presents you as hard work-
ing, enthusiastic and experienced. It
would also be helpful to have some
experience in dance, stage performance
and improvisational comedy.
Cash: Believe it or not, there are
mascot schools that can help train you
to energize the crowd and create the
enthusiasm that team owners and fans
have come to expect.
Carry: Besides, the training will be
useful to continually rally your wife's
support if you quit your day job!


Go Team
The popularity of mascots began in
1974 when a San Diego State'
University student in a chicken suit was
making public appearances to promote
a radio station. He then contacted the
San Diego Padres and offered to enter-
tain in the stands during games. After a
few years he became a fan favorite.
The Philadelphia Phillies soon picked
up the same idea and the concept of
using mascots began spreading to other
teams. Today, 95% of all sports teams
have a mascot.
Black and White
Like mascots, professional umpires
have to love their jobs. And it's no easy
task to get them. First they must com-
plete a 5-week training program of
which only top graduates go to an evalu-
ation course run by the Professional
Baseball Umpire Corp. (PBUC). If
hired, they are allowed to officiate only
the lowest levels of minor league games.
Then, the umpire has just three years to
impress the major leagues with his calls,
otherwise "You're Out!" For the few that
make it to the top, salaries can range
from $90,000 to $350,000 per year.

Flavored Career
Ever since our family vacation to
Universal Studios, my husband has
, been obsessed with finding a small
acting job. The kids and I have been
ridiculing him for weeks about this,
since he can't even stand to be in
front of a home video camera.
Nonetheless, one night during din-
ner he was sifting through the news-
paper and came across a classified ad
advertising, "Brief acting job for a
man in his 50's." Reading it aloud,
he was convinced he could get the
job.
"But you don't have any acting
experience," I razzed him.
"What do you mean," he replied
taking a bite of food "I've pretended
to like our cooking for ears.!"

State parks
contribute
big to local
economies
Submitted
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
announced recently that Florida's
state parks contributed more than
$936 million to local communities
during the 2006-07 fiscal year. During
that time, state parks generated more
than 18,700 jobs and welcomed a
record-breaking 19.5 million visitors.
"Nature-based recreational activities at
Florida's state parks are a significant
part of Florida's growing ecotourism
industry," said DEP Deputy Secretary
Bob Ballard. "Our state parks offer
environmental recreation and
education for visitors of all ages, and
this record-breaking success was a
great boost to the state's economy."
At the top of this year's list is St.
Andrews State Park in Panama City
Beach, which contributed more than
$47 million to. the state. Closely
following is Honeymoon Island State
Park in Dunedin, with more than $42
million in direct economic impact; John
Pennekamp State Park in Key Largo,
contributing $38.3 million; Lovers Key
State Park in Fort Myers Beach,
supplying $37.8 ri-ll:.r for South
Florida economies; and Bill Baggs
Cape Florida State Park in Key
Biscayne, p~,:, iing $36.6 million for
Southeast Florida.
"Florida's state parks are a popular
draw for both out-of-state and local
visitors," said 'DEP Florida Park
Service Director Mike Bullock. "The
beaches, :ri,: and recreational and
educational opportunities at state
parks are enjoyed at record-breaking
levels across the state."
Direct economic impact is calculated
as the amount of new dollars spent in
the local economy by non-local park
visitors and park operations. The
Florida Park Service uses the Money
Generation Model designed for and
used by the National Park Service to
assess economic impact in the local
area around a park.
The first two-time Gold Medal winner
honoring the nation's best state park
system, the Florida Park Service is
one of the largest in the country with
161 parks spanning 700,000 acres
and 100 miles of sandy white beach.
From swimming and diving in Florida's
rivers and, springs to birding and
fishing or hiking and riding on natural
scenic trails, Florida's state parks offer
year-round outdoor activities for all
ages. Battle' reenactments and Native
American festivals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art shows,
museums and lighthouses offer a
window into Florida's cultural heritage.

State Parks, visit
