Suwannee Valley report luncheon where those in atten-
dance heard home folks tell their story about why they
support United Way. "Everybody cares about some-
thing," said Al Plymel of Altaquip a Hamilton County
company that services all types of equipment for Home
Depot. One hundred percent of Plymel's employees
have been participants for two years in the United Way
company campaign because they care about United
Way and those it serves. Joy Howell, Hamilton County
campaign chair told of the campaign status, Karen
Williams told those assembled of the success of the
Challengers' Club members and Jeff Parker thanked
members of his PCS campaign team for their hard work.
Parker says, "We don't give up." Campaign pledges
booked to date are $371,080 or 55 percent of the goal.

Tips to avoid


we~b. "tor


The United Steelworkers
Women of Steel are reach-
ing out to consumers to
educate families about
how to screen for lead con-
taminants in toys and oth-
er products. They're also
offering, while they last,
free Get the Lead Out
screening kits.
The outreach comes as
consumers are dealing
with a massive list of re-
called lead-laced and de-
fective Chinese-made toys,
including more than 20
million recalled by the
world's largest toy maker,
Mattel Inc. Earlier this
year, US-based Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. recalled more
than 10,000 vinyl bibs
made in China because
they contained lead. Other
toxic imports include lip-
stick, toothpaste, seafood,
children's lunch boxes, pet
food even Cub Scout
merit badges.
Lead can cause a variety
of health problems, includ-
ing learning disabilities,
stunted growth, kidney
damage and even death.


Follow these tips to avoid
lead poisoning:
Take stock First, check
www.recalls.gov.to see if
you have items that have
been recalled by the Con-
sumer Product Safety
Commission. Then check
what you've got. Discard
toys with chipped paint,
deteriorated plastic or oth-
er broken or damaged
parts. Avoid older toys
and furniture that may
have been painted with
lead-based paint. Check
other facilities centers,
churches or local retailers
to make sure that the items
found on the Consumer
Product Safety Commis-
sion's recall lists are not in
those facilities.
Clean up Keep floors
and other play areas clean
and free of dust and de-
bris. Wash your children's
hands and playthings of-
ten. Store toys off the floor
in a clean place.
Food safety Feed your
child a healthy diet rich in
iron and calcium, since
good diets help kids ab-

missioners will meet in the Board Room at the Hamil-
ton County Courthouse at 6 p.m., 207 NE First St.,

sorb less lead. Serve and
store food in lead-free con-
tainers such as glass or
stainless steel (many plastic
containers also may con-
tain harmful chemicals).
Shop smart Avoid no-
name products and be
careful when you buy
items at dollar stores, street
fairs, vending machines,
thrift stores or yard sales.
Do not buy jewelry espe-
cially cheap jewelry for
young children. Even if the
item does not contain lead
- and many pieces of metal
jewelry have been recalled
for that reason it can still
be a choking hazard. Be-
ware of arts and crafts
items that may have been
painted or glazed with
lead-based paints and oth-
er toxic heavy metals.
Talk to retailers A big
part of the problem is that
80 percent of all toys sold
in the United States are
made in China, with little
regulatory oversight.
Check the options at your
local toy store and tell the
manager you want safe
products and more choices.
Board and picture books,
unpainted wooden toys,
balls, non-toxic paints and
crayons and washable


stuffed animals are good
substitutes.
Test products and kids -
Aside from lead-test kits
being distributed by the
Steelworkers, home test
kits are usually available in
the paint departments of
hardware stores. If you live
in a home with paint in
poor condition that was
built before 1978, you may
want to have your children
tested since it is likely that
the paint used on the walls
and woodwork before the
mid-1970s contained lead.
Children should have their
blood checked at age one
and again at two. For more
information, contact the
National Lead Information
Center at 800-424-LEAD.
(800-424-5323). The USW
lead-testing kits are avail-
able at www.stoptoxicim-
ports.org or www.protect-
our-kids.org.
The Steelworkers' cam-
paign is supported by a
broad array of consumer
and environmental organi-
zations, including the Pub-
lic Health Institute, the
Center for Environmental
Health (www.cehca.org),
and the Blue-Green Al-
liance (www.bluegreenal-
liance.org).

ple should be grateful for
those who have provided
them the freedom to be
free and acknowledged the
veterans who were in at-
tendance.
Rep. Crenshaw ex-
plained that George Wash-
ington gave the first Pur-.
ple Heart to a soldier dur-
ing the Revolutionary
War, making it the oldest
American Medal. He then
presented Leroy (Lee) Er-


ixton a Purple Heart for his
"valor in combat in service
to our country."
The medal is awarded to
those who have been
wounded or killed in com-
bat. Erixton was wounded
during the Korean War. He
also received the National
Defense Service Medal, Ko-
rean Service Medal with
Bronze Star, Combat In-
fantry Badge 1st Award,'
and United Nations Service
Medal.
Rep. Crenshaw also pre-
sented a certificate of spe-
cial congressional recogni-
tion to Herbert Lumpkin
for his service in the Viet-
nam War.
Each year on. Veterans'
Day, VFW Post 8095 recog-
nizes a citizen who has
provided exceptional sup-


port to the post. On behalf
of Post 8095, RB Davis pre-
sented a plaque, to Charles
Hamm, owner of Jasper
Hardware, for his help in
the renovation of the VFW
building.
Megan Snipes intro-
duced the guest speaker,
her father, MSgt William
Snipes who has been in the
military for more than 20
years and is currently sta-
honed at Moody Air Force
.Base. He explained how
the poppy has come to be a'
symbol of remembrance
for veterans.. (See the
poem, "In Flanders Field,"
on 6A.) He also talked
about the history of Veter-
ans Day, which was once a
time when businesses
closed and communities
held parades and meetings


to honor veterans.
"I want to recognize
these 'young men' for their
hard work," MSGT Snipes
said. "We should be thank-
ful for the sacrifices veter-
ans have made to give us
the freedom we have."
The ceremony was
opened and closed by Mid-
dle ,Grades Guidance

was concluded by the play-
ing of "Taps" by Roger

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007 THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL PAGE 3A


Your credit score is an es-
timate of your credit risk,
which is based on your
credit report. Lenders use
this number to determine
how likely you will be to
repay a loan or line of cred-
it in a timely manner. The
higher the score, the more
likely you'll receive a lower
interest rate, and ultimately
save money.
Only 27 percent of con-
sumers understand that
credit scores measure cred-
it risk not credit knowl-
edge, amount of credit or
attitude toward credit, ac-
cording to the Consumer
Federation of America.
"There are many miscon-
ceptions circulating about
the function and purpose
of credit scores," said Mike
Sullivan, director of educa-
tion for Take Charge Amer-
ica, a national non-profit
credit counseling agency.
"Yet, this three-digit num-
ber can impact you finan-
cially nearly every day of
your life."
American consumers
have an average of 13 cred-
it obligations on record at a
credit bureau, according to
Fair Isaac Corporation,
which pioneered the most


common credit score,
called the FICO score.
These obligations include
commonly-used credit
cards, store cards, gas cards
and installment loans, each
of which has an impact on
your credit score.
Lenders are not required
to report to each of the
three major credit bureaus -
Equifax, Experian and
Trans Union. Each agency
may have different infor-
mation on your report, and
therefore, a different score.
You can' check your re-
port directly from the three
credit bureaus as many
times are you want, and it
will not affect your credit
score. To obtain a free cred-
it report, visit www.annu-
alcreditreport.com.
Canceling credit cards
can actually decrease your
score. For instance, if you
have $50,000 in available
credit and owe $10,000,
then you owe 20 percent of
your available credit. If you
close -an account with a
$30,000 credit limit, you
will then owe the same
$10,000 but it will be 50
percent of your available
credit. That lowers your
credit score. It also affects


the history part of your
score, lowering it even fur-
ther.
Your credit score is based
on the amount of credit and
debt you have, not how
much money you make. If
you receive a raise, and
your credit and debt re-
main the same, your credit
score will not improve. If
you receive a raise and use
that extra money to pay
down your debt, then your
credit score will improve.
While multiple inquiries
do show up on your credit
report, they do not neces-
sarily damage your score.
. If the same types of in-
quiries are made within 14
days of each other, they
only count as one inquiry
on your credit report. Keep
in mind that this applies to
loans, not credit cards.
Your credit score is deter-
mined by the amount of
credit you use, not the
amount of cash you use. A
steady, responsible use of
credit is the best way to
build your credit score.
You need to find a middle
ground, -as an absence of
credit as well as an overuse
of credit can work against
you.


What you don't know about


credit cards can hurt you


Did you know that in
most states, credit card
companies can change the
terms of your credit card
holder agreement with just
15 days' notice? To avoid
finding yourself suddenly
subject to new credit card
terms, the Florida Institute
of Certified Public Accoun-
tants (FICPA) recommends
that you carefully read the
fine print in the flyers peri-
odically inserted in credit
card statements.
Credit card companies
typically disclose the inter-
est rate as an annual per-
centage rate (APR). Some
lenders charge a fixed APR,
while the interest rate on a
variable rate rises and falls
based on an index, such as
the prime rate. Obviously,
the lower the APR, the bet-
ter, but be sure to carefully
read the fine print. Many
cards charge different
APRs for purchases, cash
advances and balance
transfers. Other cards have
a low "introductory rate"
that rises dramatically after
a few months.
The grace period is the
time between when you


charge a purchase and
when you begin to pay in-
terest on that charge. The
standard is 25 days, but
some credit card compa-
nies are reducing that num-
ber. If your credit card
company does not offer a
grace period, you will pay
interest on your purchases,
even if you pay your bal-
ance in full each month.,
Most consumers know
that credit card companies
assess penalties for late
payments. But you might
not realize that, with some
cards, your payment has to
be received not only by a
certain date, but also by a
certain time in order to
avoid a late fee. Check your
agreement to see what date
and time your payment is
due and be sure to allow
sufficient mailing time.
Cash advances carry a
higher interest rate and
there's no grace period.


You start accruing interest
charges as soon as you
make the transaction.
Many companies are
raising the typical fee for
overseas transactions.
Since this fee is embedded
in the exchange rate you're
shown, you might not even
realize the charge. Check
the fine print in your credit
card agreement for your,
company's policy.
If you read your credit
card agreement, you. may-
find a clause stating thaf
your credit card company'
reserves the right to raise
your interest rate if it finds-
you have been late paying'
other bills.
Many credit cards allow"
you to earn cash back, free.'
airline miles or other"
bonuses by using your'
card. High interest rgtes'
and annual fees can end up'
costing, you, more than the'
value of the perks.

By: Dr Steven Stylianos
Chief of Pediatric Surgery, Mi-
ami Children's Hospital
The dramatic increase of
traffic during the Thanks-
giving weekend can create
dangerous highway condi-
tions. The combination of
long-distance travel, heavy
traffic and Thanksgiving fes-
tivities is a potential recipe
for disaster, making the hol-
iday one of the highest
ranked for car crashes due to
impaired driving.
In 2004, 453 fatalities oc-
curred during Thanksgiving
travel, and almost 40 percent
of those fatalities were alco-
hol-related. Too many peo-
ple still take the attitude that
"it will never happen to
me," but fatal crashes can
happen, they do happen,
and sadly, they. will happen
this Thanksgiving weekend,
so travelers should be on
alert to ensure that the holi-
day is a safe one.
The first step to safe trav-
eling is to plan your trip.
The Sunday after Thanks-
giving is one of the most
heavily traveled days of the
year, with more than 27 mil-
lion Americans on the road -
11 million driving more than
100 miles and 16 million dri-
ving shorter distances.
Travelers should be on



Cottag
by Rick Leland
The ivords danced out of
her mouth: "Momma and
grandma are number one,
Jesus is number two and cot-
tage cheese is number
three." While fueling herself
with the white milky curds,
eleven-year-old Sharnae
shared her philosophy of
life.
Immediately.dher brother
Robert protested, "Cottage
cheese can't be number
three!" His choice for num-
ber three it had to be fami-
ly. He did concede that cot-
tage cheese could rank
fourth in her life.
I protest also. For the
record I place Jesus as num-
ber one. And cottage cheese
as the number three priority.
in life or even number four?
No way. That slot should be


full alert en route to their
destinations and consider
traveling on Tuesday, Nov.
20, two days before Thanks-
giving or on the Monday af-
ter the holiday, Nov. 26,
days when heavy holiday
traffic is less likely.
Next, Thanksgiving trav-
elers must remember to
obey all traffic laws, includ-
ing buckling up, slowing
down and designating a
sober driver. More than half
of passengers and drivers
killed in crashes in 2004
were not wearing safety
belts, even though, they are
the single most effective
means of protection when
traveling. Speed also often
contributes to the most hor-
rific crashes, and was an ele-
ment in 30 percent of all fatal
crashes in 2004. Slowing
down will help ensure that
you arrive to the Thanksgiv-
ing feast safely, Additional-
ly, remember to designate a
sober driver before the fes-
tivities if you plan to con-
sume alcohol to provide a
safe trip home.
Finally, be sure to give
thanks for safety this
Thanksgiving. With keen
awareness and cautious dri-
ving, Thanksgiving week-
end is sure to be safe and fun
for every traveler.



a cheese
for pizza.
Or, nachos, or barbequed
chicken; or your favorite
food.
Let's be real. I love gpod
food; you love good food.
But, I need to move it down
the list.
The Bible talks often about
food, with one of the more
peculiar references being the
diet of John the Baptist. Ac-
cording to Jesus, there was
no greater man than John
the Baptist. Yet, did he eat a
great man's diet?
The Bible has these diet-
adjusting, tasty words: "I
will praise God as long as I
live, and in God's name I
will lift my hands. My soul
will be satisfied as with the
richest foods."
Praising God, that 'was
John's diet for a great man.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

'We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be ours to hold it high.
If ve break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Fall is here and we are
adjusting to the time
change, so is the weather. I
love this weather, it seems
it is easier for me to get
warm in cold weather than
to get cool when it gets hot.
Living in cold climates be-
fore moving to Florida, I
learned to dress in layers,
and I do love winter
clothes. When I moved to
Jasper I had clothes that it
never got cold enough for
me to wear, but living here
also has spoiled me. This
time last year I was in
Franklin and nearly froze.
If you missed the annual
Lions Club Pancake Sup-
per, you missed good food
and fellowship. We do look
forward to this every year. I
wonder how long it has
been going on, I will ask
someone before next week.
I know it was a tradition
when we moved here 48
years ago. This is a worth-


while
event, not only for the good
time we all have, but it is to
benefit the Lions Club Pro-
ject to provide glasses and
eye care for the needy, es-
pecially school children. It
is an ongoing project, if you
have any old glasses please
see a member of the Lions
Club and donate them. I
know they can be dropped
off at Dr. Ben's dental of-
fice, and I assume they can
be taken to Roosters as that
is where the Lions Club
meetings are held. It is hard
to get to visit with every-
body at the supper,*and eat
too. It seems we see so
many people from
throughout the county, and
visitors.
The Veterans' Day Pro-
gram at the Hamilton
County High School was
very impressive. It was ap-
propriate that it was held at
the 11th hour, on the 11th


day of the 11th month of
the year, as this was the day
dedicated as Veterans' Day.
A delayed Purple Heart
was presented by Con-
gressman Ander Crenshaw
to Mr. Leroy (Roy) Erixton.
Mr. William Snipes was
speaker and in his presen-
tation brought up the use of
the poppy as a flower on
Veterans' Day, he had
checked on the significance
of the poppy and gave a re-
port. This brought back
memories. We studied
these many years ago when
I was a student. We memo-
rized the poem "In Flan-
ders Field" and had to learn
all about its significance. As
much as young people are
into computers today, there
is much to learn. When I
was growing up we only
had books, so I decided to
get on internet (my family
and friends will be sur-
prised), connected to
Google and immediately
found a lot of information
regarding Flanders Field
that we had learned from
books many years ago. I re-
member reciting this poem
in class, forgive me for go-


ing back to my memories,
but many of you tell me it
takes you back also. Mayte
these things can be shared
with our young people
When you see a poppy on
Veterans' Day or any other,
day, you can know the
meaning of its use on such
special occasions.
We understand Chinese
Food is now available in


the Baya Pharmacy mall. I
am not sure of the hours,
etc., but I know you can
find your way there. If you
want to try their food, it
seems to be available and
tasty. Many people love
this food and it will be
handy to have it here in
Jasper.

Counselor's Corner


By: Paula G. Williams
HCHS Middle Grades
Guidance Counselor
A very special thanks to
all Veterans' Day program
participants. We appreciate
your assistance in honoring
those who deserve so much
more. Teachers did a great
job of exposing the stu-
dents to current events,
power point presentations,
oral discussions, TV pro-
ductions, writing, art, and
musical experiences cen-
tered around Veterans'
Day. Bulletin board dis-
plays were very informa-
tive as well.
Congratulations to our
44 middle grades honor
roll students and their fam-
ilies. We trust you have re-
ceived your congratulatory
letter in the mail.
We are very concerned
about our students who
need more help. The report
card reflects the area that
need improvement and let-
ters were mailed out to
these parents last week. As
indicated in the letter,
please be sure to call and
schedule a time to come
meet with us so that we can
discuss other ways to help
your child become more
successful.
We continue to assess
through DIBELS, Compass
and FCAT Explorer. Tutor-
ing is available and can be
arranged through the
teachers. I am seeing the


same students taking ad-
vantage of the opportuni-
ties and others not being as
involved as they need to
be. Information has been
included in this newspaper
article, The Counselor
Chronicle (middle grades
school newsletter), flyers
sent home, the morning
television show and con-
stant announcements at the
school. I am pleading for
your assistance in making
sure your child takes ad-
vantage of all of the oppor-
tunities here to experience
more success.
The eighth grade Science
classes are working on pro-
jects that are due on Nov.
19. Please make sure your
child is on task and if you
have questions, contact the
teacher, Abby Taylor, at
the high school. For those
of you who have notified
us with email addresses,
the outline was sent you.
Some of the emails are
kicking out. Please forward
a good email address to me
for I do use this as another
means of communication.
The character word for
the month of November is
"gratitude" being thank-
ful and appreciative.
Progress reports will be


sent home on Monday,
Nov. 19.
Do have a wonderful and
relaxing Thanksgiving hol-
iday with your family
friends and remember va-
cation days are Nov. 21
through Nov. 23.
Come by room #127 at
Hamilton County High
School if I can be of assis-
tance to you or please don't
hesitate to call me at 792-

What a wonderful Veter-
ans' Day weekend we en-
joyed "way down upon the
Suwannee River" in White
Springs. Our 55th annual
Florida Folk Festival was re-
scheduled to Veterans' Day
weekend because of the
Bugaboo Fire. The South
Hamilton Elementary Cho-
rus under the direction of
Delores Howell wowed the


audience with their superb
performance. South's music
teacher, Mrs. Cameron, did a
superb job singing the "Na-
tional Anthem" and our
state song (for now anyway)
- "Old Folks at Home."
Later during the weekend,
I enjoyed hearing the inspi-
rational gospel of my good
friend, Mae Frances Mar-
shall. Mae Frances sings


with deep conviction and
emotion, and the spirit of
God is. in her singing. She
was accompanied by my
dear friend and former col-
league, Earnestine Johnson.
Eamestine is always more
than willing to lend a help-
ing hand with community
events, and, truly, she bless-
es our small community
with her God given talents.
One of my students from
Richardson, Travious Mc-
Coy, son of Fanita Roberts,
and grandson of Florine Dye
and Steve Roberts, helped
me a lot over the weekend.
Trey is a high honor student
at Richardson and is vice-
president of our student
council. Thank you, Trey!!!
We were all so sorry that

First Baptist Church,
White Springs, had a special
service on Sunday, Nov. 11,
where all the ladies of the
church wore hats. Sherry
Morgan Bush wears some of
the most beautiful hats I've
ever seen. Today, it is rather
uncommon for women to
wear hats to church, but
when I was growing up in
the early and mid sixties, it
was the rule, not the excep-
tion. Women were not
dressed up for daytime un-
less they were wearing hat
and gloves.
Part of the joy of the Flori-
da Folk Festival is spending
time with our dear friend,
Kerry Waldron, who is the
city manager of Adel, Ga.,

White Springs boy. Kerry
has done well in his profes-

of him. We always have a

Kerry and this past weekend
was no exception. If a dollar

Fishing after cold fronts


By Scott Suggs
First, let me say that as an
angler I understand that
bass fishing front can be very frustrating.
Especially if you fish in ar-
eas with Florida-strain
largemouth bass, cold fronts
can pretty much be the ex-
cuse you need to park the
boat and head to a deer
stand or sit in the house and
watch football.
But cold fronts are just a
fact of life for most of the
country from about October
through April. That's a long
period of time to,, simply
give up' on bass fishing.
Those fish have to eat at
some point during this sL\x-
month stretch; fish are going
to be caught by someone
somewhere. I figure that
might as well be me.
As' the air temperature
cools from a cold front, the
surface temperature of the.
water will also begin to cool.
This will force bass in shal-
low water to seek holding
areas in deeper water where
the temperature will be
warmer. I use my electron-
ics to find brush piles in


deep water or deep-water
ledges near channel swings
or secondary points. Once I
find them I like to use a jig
or a drop shot, something
with a vertical presentation.
Drop-shotting a Berkley
Gulp! Sinking Minnow can
be effective. Just shake the
rod tip, trying not to move
the bait too far.
Sometimes smaller baits
can be they key, too. Being
cold blooded the body tem-
perature of a bass is regulat-
ed by its. environment.
.When the water cools, they
become lethargic and their
metabolism slows. Big
meals aren't needed, but a
easy meal one that won't
require much work to cap-
ture or consume is always
welcome.
Don't overlook tight cov-
er, either. Bushes, root balls,
dock pilings, logs and rock
can sometimes draw in
large numbers of bass. They
will huddle in these protect-
ed areas where the water
temps are more stable. Try
pitching jigs or wacky
rigged soft plastics like a
PowerBait Fat Dover


Crawler in. these areas and
let them sink. It might take
some time, but you can
catch these fish.
More than anything, fish-,
ing after a cold front re-
quires "anglers to slow
down. The bass are going to
be moving and reacting
slowly, so your presentation
should not be fast. Bait like
Gulp! are ideal for'slow pre-
sentations because the scent
and flavor that are built into
the baits works even better
when fished slowly.
SFishing after cold fronts
isn't ideal, but don't let low,
air temperatures keep you
off the water. This time of
the year can yield some very
big fish that have been gorg-
ing on the shad that spawn
inrthe backs of coves. Plus,
there won't be much boat
traffic. Just change your tac-
tics a little and go catch
some big bass while' every-
one else is sitting around the
house.
Scott Suggs is the 2007 FLW
Champion and the first angler
in professional, bass fishing to
ii in S million in a singie tour-
anyou(II.

Bald eagle success story


by Sallie Gentry
While recently driving
toward the Visitor Center
-early one morning, I was
-greeted by our nation's
most recognizable symbol -
the bald eagle. It posed in
,the top of a dead pine tree
along the main entrance
Toad, an unlikely spot for a
baird whose habitat usually
includes estuaries, large
iakes, and rivers. The sun
lust peeked over the trees,


and enveloped the eagle in
that magical light that lasts
for only a few precious mo-
ments. As if on cue, as the
sun rose higher and the
moment passed, the great
bird took a last look around
and effortlessly soared
west toward the refuge of
the swamp.
The excitement that filled
my being stems from a true
success story announced
just before this rare sight-


ing. On June 28, Secretary
of the Interior Dirk
Kempthorne announced
the removal of the bald ea-
gle from the threatened
and endangered species
list. Just forty short years
ago, the bald eagle almost
disappeared from the
earth. Habitat loss, illegal
shooting and' poisoning
from lead shot, and conta-
mination of food sources,
primarily from DDT and its


derivatives, all contributed
to the eagle's steady de-
cline. By 1963, only 417
nesting pairs remained.
Through passage of the
Bald Eagle Protection Act
in 1940, the Endangered
Species Preservation Act of
1966, and the Endangered
Species Act of 1973; safe-
guards were put into mo-
tion to begin the process of
saving our nation's symbol.
Today, there are nearly


10,000 nesting pairs of bald
eagles in the contiguous
United States.
The last nesting bald ea-
gle recorded in the Oke-
fenokee NWR occurred in
1957 near Buzzards Roost
Lake. Recent sightings oc-
cur sporadically in and
near the refuge, including
Chesser Prairie, the St.
Marys River and the Chess-
er Island Landfill, located
near the east entrance. Bald


eagles are seen more fre-
quently here during winter
months, where they con-
gregate near open water in
tall trees for spotting prey
and night roosts for shel-
tering.
The US Fish and Wildlife
Service (FWS) is the princi-
pal agency charged with
conservation of endan-
gered species. As a division
under FWS, National
Wildlife Refuges are the
world's largest collection
of lands and waters specifi-
cally managed for fish and
wildlife. The Okefenokee
National Wildlife Refuge
(NWR) was established in
1936 as a refuge and breed-
ing ground for migratory
birds and other wildlife.
Staff currently, manage
habitat for endangered and
threatened species such as
the red cockaded wood-
pecker, gopher tortoise,
and indigo snake. The
overwhelming success of
the bald eagle gives hope
that perhaps one day we
will see the permanent re-
turn of this majestic symbol
to the Okefenokee NWR.

Tips to avoid

crashes

between cars

and deer
High season for car crash-
es with deer is October
through December. Each
year, they account for more
than 150 human and nearly
one and a half million deer
fatalities. Experts attribute
the problem to the combi-
nation of deer mating and
migration habits and -short-
ened daylight hours.
'More drivers are on the
road at dawn and dusk, the
very time of day when deer
are most active," cautioned
Ray Palermo, director of
public relations for Re-
sponse Insurance, a nation-
al car insurer. "A car strik-
ing a 200-pound adult deer
can not only result in the
death of the deer, but also
incur an average of two
thousand dollars in damage
to the vehicle." Palermo
suggested a few basic cau-
tions for drivers.
Scan a wide swath of the
roadside. Slow down when
approaching a deer stand-
ing near the side of a road
and be prepared. If startled,
the deer can bolt onto the
road and into your path. If
necessary, honk your horn
and flash your lights to try
to scare it away.
Be alert for more deer
than you may see at that
moment. Where there is one
deer, there are often more
nearby.
In many instances, it is
best not to swerve around
the deer since the deer may
move in the same direction.
You may also inadvertently
hit another vehicle, or go off
onto a dangerous shoulder.
Be particularly careful at
dawn and dusk and when
driving either over a hill or
around a curve, where visi-
bility is limited. Use your
high beams to give you a
greater area of visibility and
allow you to see the deer's
eyes sooner.
Deer whistles or ultrason-
ic deer avoidance systems
attached to vehicles have
never been proven to work
by independent studies and
may give drivers a false
sense of security.
Take deer crossing signs


seriously, particularly those
installed specifically for this
time of year. Be particularly
cautious in wooded and
agricultural areas where
there is little distance be-
tween the road and the
woods.

mation is available at

By Tom Carr

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. There's more
under these waters than sand, seaweed and
fish. The Grand Traverse Bay Underwater
Preserve Council has been looking for new
and interesting dive sites since May. In ad-

intact" horse-drawn carriage and geological
features believed to have been formed when
the bay was much deeper than it is now.
!"We're really searching for the whole
gamut of cultural materials in the diving
area," said Mark Holley. The underwater ar-
.chaeologist for the council, he was trained
'at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland
Sand teaches at Northwestern Michigan Col-
lege. Soon, the group will search for un-
marined aircraft believed to have crashed in


the bay more than 60 \ ears ao after having
been launched off the deck of a U.S. Navy
aircraft carrier. The hunt is based on re-
Search conducted by Jerry Taylor of Kings-
ley, Mich., who has collected an accordion
file full of photos, news stories and military
documents on the planes over the last two
years. "I remember when I was a kid grow-
ing up in the '60s and I heard my dad and
his friends talking about remote controlled
aircraft in the bay," he said. "That stuff's
pretty cool when you're a kid." He called
the craft the ."great grandfather of the cruise
missiles." Taylor is not a member of the
council, but has pursued information on the
-planes as a kind of hobby. He's shown some
of his findings to Holley and he's plotted
two areas of one square mile each north of
Old Mission Peninsula where he believes
the wrecked planes are likely to be. Taylor
is a mapping technician for Gourdie-Fraser
in Traverse City. Holley said his estimates
of where the items lie are worth exploring.
"Whether we can find them or not is a dif-


ferent story," he said. "We have photos of
when they were going in the drink, but no-
body's ever found them that we know of.'i
The group hopes to search for the aircraft
with the help of more advanced sonar :
equipment than they currently have avail-
able,. "The planes are just part of the wider
search," Holley said. "We're looking for all
the cultural features in the area." In addition
to the dock from the 1800s. the group has
been looking at the horse-drai n carriage
believed to have gone through the ice and a
"junk pile in Old Mission, created by teens
in the 1950s. "The pile consists of refrigera-
tors, freezers, boats and cars in 20 feet of'
water." They were going to create their own
island," Holley said. While not condoning
dumping trash in the bay. he said potential
contaminants are likely gone by now and "it
actually does create a fantastic wildlife
habitat, believe itor not." The organization
also hopes to remap the depths of the bay,
since Holley said existing maps were done'
long ago and can be up to 50 feet off in the.


current depths. Members are apply ing for
grants to help them map the floor of the bay
and do other research. The group is not pub-
licizing the location of the petroglyph. They
want experts to have a chanceto help au-
thenticate and date it. Also, under 90 feet of
after r on east side of Old Mission. diners
have found columns of stone that were
"caused by rough water action" and indicate
deeper water sometime in the distant past,
Holley said. "Geologists in the group got
real excited," he added. "That seems to be
the way we find everything. We're out look-
ing for a shipwreck and \%e find something
else." The group is apply ing to the state
government for official preserve status.
They also plan an underw ater summit"
Sept. 7-9 at the Hagerty Center on NMC's
Great Lakes Campus, part of which w ill in-
volve members giving an update on the
group's activities.

Handling Holiday Depression


The holidays are supposed to be a time of year when
friends and family gather to enjoy each other's
company and reflect on their good fortune. However,
for some, the holidays can be a time of anxiety,
uncertainty and depression. .
The reasons for such feelings can vary greatly
depending on the individual. For some, the holidays act
as a reminder of a lost loved one,. while others simply
struggle with the increased stress that comes with the
season. Mental Health America (formerly known as the
National Mental Health Association) offers the
following tips .for coping with stress and depression
during the holiday season.
Focus on the big picture. Keep in mind that the
holiday season is just that, a season. Don't place all
your focus on one day, such as Thanksgiving or
Christmas. Lessen stress by spreading out activities and
not placing too great an emphasis on a specific holiday.
Otherwise, you could be. setting yourself up for
disappointment and feelings of failure should
something not go according to plan.
Don't use alcohol as a crutch. Far too many
people turn to alcohol during the holiday season to
calm nerves or as the centerpiece of festivities. It's no
coincidence that alcohol-related traffic accidents are at
their highest during the holiday season. That's because
alcohol is at seemingly every turn during the holidays,
be it an office party or a gathering with friends. But for
those who are finding the holiday season especially
difficult, alcohol should be avoided. Alcohol is a
depressant and will only make matters worse.
Don't repress certain feelings. Like any other
season, the holiday season has room for sadness. It's
perfectly normal to feel sadness over a lost loved one
during the holiday season. But sharing those feelings
with others who miss the person as well can be a
healthy form of coping. Even if you don't share those
feelings, don't dwell on the person's absence, dwell on
the good times you had with the person.
Feelings of loneliness also become more prevalent
around the holidays. If that's the case, try volunteering
with a local charity. This can be a great way to meet
new and well-meaning people.
* Make time for yourself. The stress of the holiday
season is thanks in large part to the busier schedule that
comes with entertaining and shopping. But make sure
that schedule includes some time for you to recharge
your batteries. Stay in and watch a movie, go for a
walk, or just schedule an activity you can enjoy that's
free of stress. You might be surprised how refreshing

One way to relieve the stress ofthe holiday season is to escape it by -
spending quality time with loved onesto refresh yourself.

one day away from the hectic holiday season can be.
Change your celebration. If your feelings of
sadness stem from the loss of someone with whom you're
used to celebrating the holidays, consider changing the
way you celebrate. For example, if hosting a holiday
dinner has traditionally fallen on your shoulders, ask a
relative to play host this year so you can relax and enjoy
time spent with loved ones. Or host the dinner but have it
catered instead of cooking yourself.
* Surround yourself with loved ones or caring
people. Perhaps the best advice is to not suffer alone or
in silence. The holidays should not be a time of
loneliness, so make an effort to spend more time with
loved ones if you're feeling lonely or sad. Don't just visit
on an actual holiday. If you have to go shopping for gifts,
invite a friend or relative along and make a day of it.

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

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00

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


Dear Classified Guys,
The other day I saw an ad offering
three pet turtles and a tank, free to a
good home. I thought turtles would
be fun for my kids. However, I didn't
realize getting them would be so dif-
ficult. When I got there, I was faced
with a huge interview. "Did I know
how to take care of turtles?" "What
was my experience?" "Was I willing
to keep them for the 30+ years of
their lives?" As if that wasn't bad
enough, the demands then started
on a paper contract. "I must keep
their names." "I must allow visiting
rights to their 3-year-old daughter
when she gets older." "I must send
yearly updates." Surely they were
kidding since they were-the ones
giving away the turtles.
Why would they make such _
demands? Who would take ,,
these turtles under those
conditions? I sure didn't.

Carry: When it comes to giving
away pets, you can find all sorts of
strange requests.
Cash: Although discussing yearly
updates and visitation rights makes it
sound more like a divorce settlement
than giving away a pet!
Carry; There could be any number


CLASSIFm






Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze

@2007 The Classified Guys


of reasons the owners are so particular.
Sometimes when forced to give away a
pet, people suffer anxiety from the
anticipated separation and hope
requests such as these will help. Since
the parents have a young daughter, they
may also be trying to ease her transition
with their.guidelines. It may have been
the daughter's idea to request the new
owners keep the names.
Cash: Although the interview and
contract do seem extreme in this case, it
is always a good idea to be careful when
giving away a pet. Too many times ani-
mals can be given to bad owners, or
worse, to someone who plans on harm-
ing them. Beloved pets have ended up


neglected or used for medical testing.
These owners may simply be trying to
secure a safe future for their pets.
Carry: Surprisingly, turtles do
require more care than most people
think. Although novel to own, they do
need the proper combination of light,
shade, heat and humidity to be kept
healthy and safe. The size of the tank
required for three turtles to grow would
be a fairly large addition to any room.
Cash: Now since you weren't com-
fortable with the conditions, it was a
good idea to pass on the offer. After all,
if you committed to the turtles for 30+
years, you would be bringing them to
your daughter's wedding!

Don't Touch
If you're considering getting a turtle,
remember that small turtles do not make
good pets for children. In fact, the US
government banned the sale of turtles
less than 4 inches in.length in the 1970's.
Before that time, red-eared slider turtles
were inexpensive and readily available in
most pet stores. However, many of these
turtles suffered from neglect, often living
in a bowl with no filtration system and no
room to grow. Their small size also
made them more likely to fit in a child's
mouth and spread Salmonella infections.
Turtle Mania
Like many animals, turtles have been
integrated into our children's lives
through cartoons or children's stories.
You can find many renditions of the tale
The Tortoise and the Hare, including a
popular version produced in 1941 by
Looney Tunes, the creators of Bugs
Bunny. In 1984, the comic book
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spawned
a whole new adventure for turtle char-
acters. This popular series has been
created into cartoons, movies, games
and toys for more than twenty years.

Getting Too Old
My best friends are about ten years
older than my wife and I. As we all
had kids and got older, we learned to
take things easier than when we were
younger.
We recently got together to play
cards and started talking about our
kid's pets. I explained that we just
got my son a pet rabbit. "He's been
asking for one for months," I told
them.
"My son has been asking for a rab-
bit too," Mv older friend said "But I
opted to get him nn turtle."
\\hen %%e looked at htm perplexed,
he explained, "At m' age, I figure it's
easier to catch a tunrie if it gets
loose!"
