maintain a single lane, the report states.
He then stopped in the parking lot of
City Hall.
As Body got out of the car, Williams
saw him grab the waistband of his pants.

covered with a scarf, approached them,
the report states.
Waters asked Smith a question and
walked off, according to the report. He
returned and spoke to her again. Then he
lifted his skirt, exposing his genitals to
her and her children, the report states.
Waters left the area in an older model
Jeep when some customers came out of
the store.
When officer Scott Burke arrived at the
scene, Waters was not there, the report
states. Burke saw a vehicle matching the
description given by Smith drive through
the parking lot of a nearby store. He
stopped the Jeep and approached it. As
Burke neared the Jeep, he saw Waters re-
move a blonde wig and attempt to put on
a pair of jeans, the report states. Burke re-
ported he could smell alcohol when Wa-
ters got out of the car.
When Burke questioned Waters, Wa-
ters said he had drunk about three drinks,


according to the report. He refused to
perform any field sobriety tests, said
Burke. When Burke attempted to hand-
cuff him, Waters pulled away, the report
states. He continued resisting arrest, until
Burke managed to handcuff him.
Several items of women's clothing and
jewelry, a scarf and a wig were found in
the Jeep, as well as several items of re-
straint, according to the report. Smith
positively identified Waters as the man
who had exposed himself to her and her
children, the report states.
Waters was also charged with resisting
arrest without violence and driving un-
der the influence, according to Hamilton
County Jail booking report. He posted a
$10,000 bond the next day and was re-
leased, according to the report.
I Waters is employed at the Hamilton
Correctional Institute, according to the
police report. Warden Greg Riska said the
Inspector General's Office is investigating
the incident and is looking at possible ter-
mination.

Body then tried to find the
gun and began running
again. Williams thought
Body had recovered the
gun, so she pulled next to
him in her patrol car and
shot him with a Tazer, ac-
cording to the report.
Williams still thought
Body had a gun and when
.he refused her orders to
show his hands she shot
him with the Tazer again,
the report states. When
Body showed his hands,
Williams tried to handcuff
him but he resisted.
After Body was trans-
ported to the Hamilton
County Jail, he refused an
alcohol breath test and re-
fused to talk to Williams,
according to the report. A
loaded gun was found'
where Body fell'.


Body was charged with
aggravated assault on a
law enforcement officer
and aggravated fleeing
and eluding, both felony
charges, the report states.

several misdemeanors, in-
cluding resisting arrest
without violence, posses-
sion of a firearm in the
commission of a felony,
carrying a concealed


firearm, reckless driving,
driving while license sus-
pended knqwingly and

ence, according to the re-
port. As of Wednesday,

Grants

and the City of Jasper has authorized $750
for legal services. The total cost of the new
equipment will be $47,730.
"First responders such as police officers
are the ones we turn to first in time of
need," said Rural Development Area Di-
rector Peggy Johns. "Properly trained and
equipped first responders have the great-
est potential to save lives and limit casual-
ties in emergency situations. Partnerships
between federal and local governments,
that pool funding resources make it possi-
'ble to undertake projects such as improve-
ments to the City of Jasper's police depart-
ment and City Hall that' otherwise would
not be feasible."
The second grant will be used to repair
the roof of City Hall. The estimated cost
of the project will be $47,000. The balance


of the cost of the repairs will be provided
by the City in the form of a cash contri-
bution.
"A great deal of gratitude goes to the
USDA and to the City of Jasper staff that
are consistently successful with obtaining
grant funds for our community," said
City Manager Kent Cichon. "These funds
will be used for much needed repairs to
-City Hall and for law enforcement equip-
ment that will allow our police officers to
enhance public safety and their own."
USDA Rural Development is committed
to the future of rural communities and is
the lead Federal entity for rural develop-
ment needs, administering financial and
technical assistance through Rural Hous- [
ing Programs, Rural Business-Cooperative
Programs and Rural Utilities Programs. i

reminder of some upcom-

Saturday, Dec. 1, Live Oak
will kick off the Christmas
season with their annual
Christmas on the Square
event beginning at 8 a.m.
This is an outstanding
event for the entire family. I

the Square just to purchase
a 'fruitcake from the Live
Oak Church of God. The
Christmas on the Square
Light Parade begins that
evening around 6 p.m. and
is a well coordinated event.
White Springs will cele-
brate its annual Festival of

By Bryan Golden
Among other things, the
holidays are a time of giv-
ing and receiving gifts. The
question most often asked
of people is, "What did
you get?" Much less fre-
quently asked is, "What
did you give?" Invariably,
the inquiries concern mate-
rial gifts. Purchasing a gift
can certainly be thoughtful
and a wonderful gesture,
especially when it's backed
up by your actions.
However, the most valu-
able presents are those that
aren't sold in stores. When
you give your love, your
time, help someone in
need, aid another in solv-
ing a problem or overcom-
ing an obstacle, you give
something priceless.
The true spirit of the hol-
idays is giving. When you
give unconditionally, you
don't just impact the recip-
ient; you start a chain reac-
tion. By brightening the
life of one person you also
affect all those who they
then touch.
For family and friends,
your time is one of the
most precious gifts you
can offer. Are you there for
others when they need
you? Do you offer a hand
without being asked? Do
you help. out when asked?
Too. often, people get
caught up in their own de-
sires, thus losing sight of
the needs of others. A per-
son who tries' to get
through life by looking out
for himself or herself first
is invariably frustrated.
Often this person views
life as a competition to de-
termine who can accumu-
late more.
On the other hand, those
who are concerned for the
well being of others are
happier, more content, and


more satisfied. By giving
without expecting, they.in
turn receive the things
they need.
Giving is a simple con-
cept that works every time
it is applied. There will be
people who don't appreci-
ate what you do, but it
doesn't matter. You are
giving without anticipat-
ing anything in return. Be-
sides, there will be many
more who are thankful for
your efforts.
If you don't treat others
well, buying a gift won't
compensate for your be-
havior. The recipient might
like what you give then
but it won't make up fo
you actions. You can't
bribe someone to, forgive
the way you treat them,
with a present,
The best gift you can re-
ceive is the joy of making
someone else happy. Being
unselfish is a wonderful
way to live. When you give
with no ulterior motives,
your actions are seen as
genuine. Should you ex-
pect something in return,
your behavior is always
suspect. We all know peo-
ple who do nice things
only -when they want
something in return.
Make giving a daily rou-
tine. Don't start and end
with the holiday season.
Every day is a good day to
do something nice. When
people feel good due to
your actions, .you can't
help but feel happy your-
self. And that is priceless.
The most significant action
you can take is 'having a
positive impact on the
lives of others.

ment expert, syndicated

Trojans begin season


Submitted
The Hamilton County High School
varsity boys basketball team started
the 2007-08 season off with a bang by
winning their own Tip Off Classic and
then defeating Echols County.
HCHS hosted their own pre-season
tournament, the Hamilton County Tip
Off Classic, last Thursday and Satur-
day. Joining the Trojans were the
Lafayette High Hornets, the Fort White
Indians, and the Melody Christian
Wildcats.
Melody defeated Fort White in the
first game of the tournament on Thurs-
day night. Hamilton and Lafayette
played in the late game with the Tro-
jans stomping the Hornets, 89-51.
HCHS got off to a great start, using
pressure defense to lead the Hornets,
48-28, at half time; A big second quar-
ter run helped lead the Trojans. That
run started with an alley-oop pass
from Ti'Wan Cooks to Josh Jones for a
dunk. The play excited the crowd and
gave the Trojans huge momentum. Af-
ter a fairly evenly played third quarter,
Hamilton outscored Lafayette, 25-11,
in the fourth quarter to cruise to victo-
ry.
Four Trojan players scored in double
figures with two other players scoring
nine points each. Cooks led all scorers-
with 16 points. Jermaine Walker came
off the bench to score 15. Malcolm Pol-
lock and Vion Lanier each scored 10


points. A pair of Joshes (Jones and
Paul) each scored nine.
Other scorers included Jacaris
Stubbs (6), Robin McClain (4), Howard
Webb (4), Ryan Mathis (3), Gareth
Johnson (2) and Mark Jolly (1).
Hamilton out-rebounded the Hor-
nets, 60-25, for the game. Josh Jones led
the team in rebounding with a total of
11 boards. Jolly had nine rebounds off
the bench and Anthony Stevens and
McClain each had seven rebounds.
Other players with rebounds included
Stubbs (6), Cooks (5), Lanier (5), Pol-
lock (4), Paul (3), Walker (2) and Math-
is (1).
In the assist department, Lanier led
the team with three total assists. Eight.
other Trojans each had two assists and
Hamilton ended up having a total of 22
assists for the game.
, HCHS also had quite a few steals in
the game, ending with a total of 17.
Pollock led the charge with four thefts.
Cooks had three steals. Walker and
Lanier each had two.
As for blocked shots, Hamilton had a
total of nine for the game. The team
was led by Pollock and Stubbs who
each had two rejections. Five other
players had one blocked shot each.
It was a total team effort and a great
beginning. to the season.
Saturday night, Lafayette defeated
Fort White in overtime in the consola-
tion game, coming in third place for


the tourney. Afterwards, Hamilton
played host to Melody Christian for
the championship.
Once again, Hamilton jumped out to
a lead at the half with the score, 45-27.
Despite the lead, the Trojans were not
happy with their free throw shooting
or with their many misses close to the
basket. As a result, Hamilton came out
on fire in the second half with tremen-
dous full court defense and terrific
passing, highlighted by two nice
dunks by Jones and Pollock. The Tro-
jans used a 27r10 run to walk away
from Melody and win the game, 80-44.
The Trojans out-rebounded Melody,
54-37, despite the presence of 6'9"
Shawn Jackson for Melody. Hamilton
also caused 33 Melody turnovers.
This time HCHS had three players
scoring in double figures led by Pol-
lock's 17 points. Cooks, scored 13
points and Jones also scored in double
figures with 11. *
Other players who: scored included
Webb (8), Stevens (6), Stubbs (6), Jolly
(5), McClain (5), Lanier (5), Walker (3)
and Paul (1).
The leading rebounder for Hamilton
was also Pollock, who garnered a dou-
ble with 16 rebounds to go along with
his 17 points. Stubbs came off the
bench to grab eight boards and Jolly
also came off the 'bench to nab six re-

Global running event in Jasper


by Peggy Boston
On Nov. 11, running enthusi-
asts in over 1,000 cities celebrat-
ed World Run Day. In total, over
2,000 dedicated runners created
and ran their own course. In the
USA, about 25 group events pa-
tiently awaited the sunrise to cel-
ebrate the universal day for run-
ning. The "running community"
awaits to. see which city will
have bragging rights to becom-
ing "World Run Day City of the
Year" based on participants,
photos, videos, press coverage,
dedications, and monies raised
for charity.
According to USA Track &
Field (USATF), road runners
raised approximately $656 mil-


lion for charitable causes in the
USA alone in 2005. World Run
Day participants, in their "cele-
bration" of running, have
backed nearly 1,000 separate
charities since 1999.
For the first time ever, Jasper is
listed in this World Run Day cel-
ebration! At 9 a.m. on Sunday
morning we gathered in the
Jasper News/Bank of America
parking lot and set out on our
path. The birds cheered us on
and the weather could not have
been more beautiful. Stacey and
Caitlin Padgett and I ran,
walked, talked and laughed,
completing our course in ap-
proximately 55 minutes. Pan-
ther Success Jtivenile Facility,


Samaritan's Purse and several
churches are -among the various
charities we supported financial-
ly through this event.
If competition and racing are
not your cup of tea, this event is
perfect for you! Setting your
own course, no pressure from
running peers or bystanders, just
a "walk in the park." Maybe next
year Jasper will snag the brag-
ging rights!
I'd like to take a moment to
thank everyone for your encour-
agement and kind words about
my column. I truly appreciate it!
And a great big thanks to Jasper
News for printing me.
"Circumstance does not make
a man or woman, it reveals


him." James Allen
You are ultimately the only
person responsible for yourself
and your fitness. For a life of
weariness or of stability,
strength and energy. We are
products of our own thinking
and beliefs.
Recently, my daughter, Dixie
told me how she felt about see-
ing the muscles in her legs she
said, "I'm so' proud, Mama, I see
these muscles through my dance
tights and I think of all the hard
work I've put into my body to
make them so strong."
I am proud. She is quickly be-
coming a young woman with a
positive body image, something
our young ladies desperately


need in this day and age. So
many times we see young girls
seeking perfection. Truly, that
perfection is in our thoughts and
what we believe to be the perfect
body image. Have you seen an
anorexic seeking to lose more
weight or a 900-pound. woman
seeking help when it is almost
beyond the point of no return?
We create circumstances,
whether positive or negative
through our thoughts, lack of ac-
tion and wrong actions. Choose
to become the best you! If you
never have problems or obsta-
cles, you will never be the per-
son who overcame them.
Signing off for now PB&J

bounds. Other players with
rebounds included Walker
(5), McClain (5), Paul (4),
Jones (3), Stevens (3), Lanier
(2), Cooks (1) and Mathis (1).
Hamilton again had a
good number of assists for
the game with a game total
of 21. Jones led the team in
this department with five
assists. Webb had four as-
sists and Pollock and Mc-
Clain each had three.
The Trojans used pressure
defense to accumulate 21
steals. Jones and Pollock led
the team with four steals
apiece. Cooks and Webb
also had three steals.
Hamilton finished the
night with five total blocked
shots. McClain led the
charge with three blocks.
After the game, Coach
Patrick Murphy said, "We
are extremely happy with
winning our own preseason
classic but the real season
starts Monday night in
Statenville."
Indeed the "real" regular
season did begin Monday
night on the road in Echols
County, Ga., right across the
state line. Traditionally, the
Hamilton-Echols game has
been a strong rivalry only
aided by a close overtime
win in last year's second
match-up between the two
teams in Jasper.
There was a nice-sized
crowd in attendance that
night, especially for a Mon-
day night game. With the
varsity boys game not tip-
ping off until 9 p.m., both
teams were chomping at the
bit to get things started.
Hamilton started the
game and their official sea-
son with points on the tip-
off. McClain "won" the
jump ball, tipped the ball
ahead to Pollock, who drib-
bled down the court and


made a running jumper on
the baseline while also get-
ting knocked down to the
floor by an Echols player.
No foul was called but the
Trojans led 2-0. After a
three-pointer by Cooks, the
score was 5-0, Trojans. How-
ever, the Wildcats of Echols
County finally scored and it
was a back and forth contest
in the first period of play.
The score at the end of the
first quarter was HCHS 19,
Echols 15.
Both teams exchanged
baskets to open the second
quarter. Then, Lanier
grabbed a rebound, made
an outlet pass to Pollock on
the right side, who beat his
man off the dribble and de-
livered a resounding slam
dunk. The dunk got the Tro-
jan contingent of the crowd
up and loud and led to a
nice run, resulting in an 18-
point Trojan lead with three
minutes left in the half.
However, the Wildcats
dosed the half with a 7-0 run
of their own making the half
time score, 40-29 HCHS.
The two teams again
played a mostly even quar-
ter to start a half as the Tro-
jans out-scored the Wild-
cats, 17-15, in the third quar-
ter. Hamilton led by 13
points entering the final
frame of the night. At that
point, Hamilton pulled
away with solid man to man
defense and nice ball move-
ment to outscore Echols, 20-
5, and win going away, 77-
49.
Pollock led the Trojans in
scoring for the second game
in a row with 20 points. The
point total was a career var-
sity level high for Pollock.
Four other Trojans scored in
double figures, however.
Lanier scored, 12 points.
Webb garnered 11 and
Cooks and McClain each
had 10 points on the night.


Other scorers included
Stevens (5), Paul (5), Jolly
(2), and Walker (2).
For the third game in a
row, the Trojans out-re-
bounded their opponent.
This time they ended up
with 46 total rebounds to
Echols' 25. Robin McClain
led the charge with 11 re-
bounds, .which also gave
him his first career double-
double. Lanier and Paul
each pitched in with seven
boards. Pollock also had six
rebounds. Other players
with rebounds included
Stevens (5),,Jolly (3), Cooks
(2), Johnson (2), Walker (1),
Webb (1), and Stubbs (1).
Once again, the Trojans
had more than 20 assists for
a game. This time HCHS
ended up with 22, led by
Vion Lanier's 5 assists.
Walker and McClain each
had three assists and five
other Trojans had two as-
sists.
In the steals department,
Lanier led the team with a

Watch for calories in seasonal drinks


No good meal is com-
plete without the tinkling
of wine glasses, a hearty
beer, or later, a rich,
smooth cocktail in front of
the fire. So they tell us, any-
way. But what they don't
tell us are all the downsides
of adding that alcoholic
beverage to our celebra-
tions, and we're only talk-
ing about the nutritional
considerations here.
Generally speaking, even
the most conscientious di-
eters, the most rigorous of
careful eaters, will relax
their usual standards to
make room for some holi-
day indulgences.
You don't even need a
big holiday. Researchers
who track eating patterns
have shown that we tend to
significantly increase our
caloric intake even over
weekends, as compared to
weekdays.

significant, source of calo-
ries.
Even among people who
tend to pay attention to
caloric intake, liquid calo-
ries often slip in unnoticed.
Research shows that even
with non-alcoholic bever-
ages, people forget to count
the caloric content of their
drinks. Sodas are the main
offender of adding stealth
calories to the American
diet, but they are not alone.
There's a pretty good
chance those extra week-
end beers, or that cup of
holiday grog just won't get
factored into the overall
calorie count, or compen-
sated for by cuts elsewhere.
Drinking lowers inhibi-
tions. The same effect that
makes one drink lead to an-
other, can also make .one
drink to lead to, say, a sec-

One glass of wine or a
beer, depending on the-
type, is likely to add be-
tween 80 and 180 calories.
That's not so much, in it-
self. But the relaxed atti-
tude and lowered inhibi-
tions most people get from
that first glass of wine or
beer usually make the sec-
ond drink, complete with
all its calories, seem more
appealing. It has that same
effect for all the lovely,
tempting food that we
were only going to have in
moderation this year. This
is especially likely to come
into play during the holi-
days, because it's already a
special occasion and we're
already making exceptions,
to our rules. A bit of the

REPORTS

Editor's note: The Jasper
News prints the entire arrest
record each week. If your
name appears here and you
are later found not guilty or
the charges are dropped, we
will be happy to make note of
this in the newspaper when ju-
dicial proof is presented to us
by you or the authorities.

The solution, as always,
is moderation and balance.
If you think through the
drink, and plan ahead for
the impulse that is likely to
come, you can be prepared
to say "no thanks" to that
thick creamy, rummy egg
nog or the, extra piece of
cheesecake that's offered
along side it.
There are other concerns
associated with
overindulging in alcohol,
but you likely know those
already. If you overdo it,
your hangover will proba-
bly fade after a day and
eventually you'll live down
doing the hokey pokey on
the coffee table. But the ex-
tra pounds from extra
drinking and eating could
be harder to shake.

The Seminole People of Florida


1


The "Unconquered," bronze statue at Florida State University
Many have criticized the linking of Native American images with war and
fighting as detrimental to their image. Others feel that is shows the pride
and a willingness to preserve their way of life. Statues such as this one
by Fritz White and other public images demonstrate Florida's continued
centuries-old fascination with Seminole culture.


Submitted
A new exhibit, Seminole People
of Florida: Survival and Success,
has opened at the Museum of Flori-
da History in downtown Tallahas-
see. The exhibit will be on display
through June 1, 2008.
The exhibit was created in the
spirit of admiration for a group of
people who have not only survived
but have overcome extreme adversi-
ty through the years. The Seminole
people have adapted to a changing-
Sworld with re-
markable suc-
Scess while sus-

their tradi-'
r,) tions.
.... .... "This ex-
9I,7-1(7 hibit is a tes-
tament to the perseverance and pride
of the Seminole tribe," said Secre-
tary of State Kurt S. Browning.
"Their contributions to the culture'
and heritage of Floridians cannot be
overstated. It is an honor for us to
salute and recognize the Seminole
tribe on their 50th anniversary as a
sovereign nation with this exhibit."

lar focus on
the rich ma-

exhibit will include more than 150

the Seminole Tribe, Florida State -
University, and others to create a

Allergies on the Rise for Children


The birthday pizza party. School bake sales. PB&J sandwiches in the
lunchroom. Halloween candy. Navigating a child's world when food
allergies are present can be challenging to say the least. But for the
millions with allergies, it's4an absolute must to be resolute and avoid
potential food triggers.
If your child is allergic to nuts, dairy, or shellfish, to name a few foods,
he or she is sharing company with about 11 million other people in the
U.S. alone. About six percent of children in Quebec have food allergies.
In the past, food allergies were not much of a concern to the medical
community. Today, scientists generally agree that food allergies are a
force to be reckoned with and the numbers of those with allergies are
growing. In response, parents, children, and schools are taking measures
to make sure children with allergies are safe from attacks that can be as
mild as rashes or irritation or as severe as anaphylactic shock. Peanut- or
milk-free zones are set up in lunch rooms, and many food manufacturers
are now required to list the eight most common allergies on their food
labels. Because allergies can even be triggered from just inhaling foods,
including "peanut fumes," many airlines and classrooms actually ban
foods containing nuts or require they be stored under special lock and key
- away from allergic children.
Peanut allergies and allergies from other tree nuts, including almonds
and pecans, are among the most dire. Reports indicate that peanut
allergies have doubled in children under 5 between the years of 1997 and
2002. Even trace amounts of peanuts can cause severe, allergic reactions.
In 2005, 15-year-old Christina Desforges from Canada died a few days
after kissing her boyfriend who had just eaten peanut butter. People with
severe allergies, such as those to peanuts, often carry around EpiPens,
emergency devices that can deliver a dose of epinephrine in the case of a
severe reaction.
Why do Allergies Happen?
Scientists have a basic understanding of how allergies work, but they
don't have complete control over why the body's immune system reacts
to something that should normally be benign when ingested ... food.
With an allergy, the immune system mistakes food as a harmful
substance. White blood cells are discharged to produce antibodies against
the allergen. These antibodies attach to "mast" cells, which are found in
the skin, nose, lungs, intestines, stomach, and mouth. When an allergen
subsequently enters the body, the mast cells are ready and respond with a
chemical called "histamine." This produces the telltale allergic symptoms
of itchiness, sneezing, stomach cramping, and swelling, among others.
What Causes Allergies?
There is no concrete reason why allergies occur in some and not others.

A peanut butter sandwich may prove deadly for the 1.8 million Americans allergic
to peanuts and other tree nuts.
Many believe allergies run in families. New research into allergies has
unearthed an interesting hypothesis: that oversterilization of a child's
environment is related to development of allergies. It seems instead of just an
apple a day to keep the doctor away, children should regularly be exposed to
dirt and animals.
Studies have shown that kids who grow up on farms around animals and
dirt have fewer allergies than those who are sheltered from these conditions.
The hypothesis has even been studied among lab rats. Those in a wild habitat
exhibit far fewer allergies than rats kept in a laboratory. The line of thinking
is that in the "wild" the body learns to judge what invaders are truly ;
malevolent, such as a severe parasite, rather than something innocuous like a
grain of pollen.
Allergy Treatment
Up until recently, there was no. cure or treatment for allergies people
simply avoided triggers or took products to alleviate mild symptoms. But
scientists are looking at other options. Using the problem foods themselves
in extremely small doses, experiments are under way to see if an allergic
individual can gradually build up a tolerance to foods they normally would
be allergic to. While this doesn't mean they'll be able to indulge in a peanut
butter cup if they have a peanut allergy, it may save them a trip to the
hospital if they accidentally bite into a trace amount of peanuts.
Leading a "normal" life is generally the: goal for. allergic children and
families, who want to have their eggs, fish, peanuts whatever -and .
enjoy them, too.

LIVE OAK HEALTH FOOD
I started this business because health food really helped me andI wanted to help others. Here is a tip: *This technique
may help you survive a heart attack when alone.* Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without
help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before
losing consciousness. *What to do??* Do not panic, but start coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath
should be taken before each cough, the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside
the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the
heart is felt to be beating normally again.


SUWANNEE EVENT & PARTY RENTAL
We started this business because we felt it would be a great, creative asset to the community to be able to

Shedding accessories, archways, candelabras, tents, stages, tables, chairs, dance floors, portable bars,
Slinens, tableware, bounce rides, cooling systems, concession equipment and concession products. Best of
Small we deliver the items and setup the tent at your door, so your pre-party work is hassle free.

Dear Classified Guys,
When my refrigerator started having
problems, buying a different one
from the classified was my first
thought. My parents, on the other
hand, are trying to convince me that
buying a new one is the only way to
go. To prove their point, they bought
a new one for themselves. The first
one delivered was defective. After
three hours on the.telephone with
customer service, they got a second
one delivered. This time it was the
wrong model. A few more hours on
the telephone got that one returned.
However, now they're living out of a
small dorm refrigerator because the
store hauled away their old one.
While they've been eating take-out
and waiting for a replacement,
they're still trying to convince me
that buying new is better. From
their example I can't see the
advantages. Am I really r
wasting my time buying a ,--
used refrigerator? Right
now, buying a new one seems
like a bigger hassle.

Cash: Having a dorm-size refrigera-
tor wouldn't be so bad if your parents
had the college meal plan to go with it.
Carry: It's also a great excuse to


avoid cooking and go out to dinner.
Cash: As your parents have proven
by their example, buying new isn't nec-
essarily going to save you time or
money. Contrary to your parent's
belief, you can find a quality used
refrigerator in the classified.
Cash: It seems that your parents
may have confused the term "used"
with "old", and that's not necessarily
the case. Refrigerators are common
appliances that show up for sale quite
often. Although some can be older,
many are relatively new and up for sale
as a result of newly remodeled kitchens
or home purchases.
Carry: In most cases, refrigerators
are sold because they no longer fit a


certain decor. Buying one like that can
save you considerable money.
Cash: When it comes to refrigera-
tors though, you should look for mod-
els that are not more than a few years
old. Refrigerators continue to get more
energy efficient each year.
Carry: Buying a fridge that is too old
could cost you more in the long run since
it uses more electricity to keep things
cool. You'll find that most newer models
have better insulation and efficiency fac-
tors than their predecessors.
Cash: However, if you do choose to
buy a used refrigerator, just be careful.
Since you might have one before your
parents, they may invite themselves
over for dinner!


Making the Grade
Choosing a new refrigerator is no easy
task. According to EPA's Energy Star,
there are 2,524 different models of refrig-
erators on the market. That's a lot of -
choices. However, they dwindle quickly
when you look at efficiency. Only 1,441
of these models meet today's Energy Star
criteria (15% better than the federal stan-
dard). The more efficient, the less choic-
es there are. Only 121 models (less than
5%) are 20% better than the federal stan-
dard. Amere 14 models (less than 1%)
are 25% better than the standard.
Size Matters
Some people choose a refrigerator
based on the space they have between
cabinets. Others select a model by the
features it offers. But what is the right
size for your family? To determine the
approximate number of cubic feet you
will need, multiply the number of peo-.
ple in your household by five. For
example, a family of four would need a
refrigerator approximately 20 cubic feet
in size. If you're the type of family that
likes to buy in bulk, you might consider
multiplying by six.

us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a
message toll-free at (888) 242-3644 or send to:
P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


The Key to Dieting
When my friend Mar. bought a
new refrigerator, she came up with
what she thought was a great idea.
Ever since she put her husband on a.
diet, he'd sneak treats from the refrig-
erator when she wasn't looking. Her.
new plan was to put the old refrigera-
tor in the garage with the food he
wasn't allowed to eat.
When I came over to visit and saw
the refrigerator in the garage, I ques-
tioned the effectiveness of her plan.
"How does it help him ifhe knows
the goodies are in here?" I asked.
"He ma,\ knio\ % hat's in there."
she id sahov uig me the padlock on
the side "but I ha\ e the onh ke\!"

Save your four-legged friend


Being prepared can help
save a pet's life, says
veterinarian.

By Dustin Shipman
CNHI News Service

JOPLIN, Mo. Being
prepared for a medical
emergency can sometimes
make all the difference in
the world. However, in
preparing for an
emergency, family pets are
often overlooked. Dr. Ben
Leavens, a veterinarian at
Main Street Pet Care in
Joplin, Mo., said the
majority of accidents he
sees with animals are
things that could have
been prevented. "Being hit
by a car is the one thing
we see most often, and
also a lot of injuries from
dog fights," Leavens said.
"Also, we see a lot of
ingestions of medicines
and other things they
shouldn't eat." There are
simple and easy steps pet
owners can take that can
save the life of a family
dog or cat when an
accident happens, he said.
Protect yourself
One of the most important
things to keep in mind
when dealing with an
injured animal is to know
how to protect yourself
while helping the animal.
Leavens said that when
animals are injured, they
can sometimes
unintentionally hurt
someone who is trying to
help them. "Animals have
claws, and they can bite
and scratch," Leavens
said. The best way to
avoid getting an injury
from a large animal like a
dog, he said, is to wrap


gauze around the animal's
nose making sure it's
snug, but not too tight.
Then, wrap the same piece
of gauze under the dog's
nose and back behind its
ears, where it should be
tied. Leavens also said it is
a good idea to wrap a cat
or a dog in a blanket or
towel to avoid being
scratched.
Stop the bleeding
The next thing to do,
according to Leavens, is to
assess your pet to find out
what is wrong. "If they are
still eating and drinking,
then it isn't too terribly
bad and it can wait till
later," he said. "If they are
bleeding, the bleeding
needs to be stopped."
Gauze and bandages are a
useful tool in wrapping an
injured area. Again, the
bandage should fit snugly,
but not too tight. A small
cut or a scrape can be
cleaned with hydrogen
peroxide, Leavens said.
However, it should be
avoi with large cuts or
pun wounds.
Poison mg
If you believe your pet has
ingested something that
might be poisonous, try to
find out as much as you
can about the product, as
well as how much they
swallowed. "In most
cases, you want to get
whatever they swallowed
out of them as soon as
possible, but there are
some exceptions to that
rule," Leavens said.
"Some poisons are toxic
going down and toxic
coming up. If an animal
drinks motor oil or
gasoline, it is toxic going
down but if they throw it


up and inhale just a small
amount then that can be
fatal." Hydrogen peroxide
is a good tool to induce
vomiting in an animal, he
said, but not too much is
needed. Pet owners should
contact the poison control
center at 800-222-1222 or
their local vet before it is
used.
Extreme temperatures
With winter weather on its
way, it is important to
keep the family pet in
mind on those cold nights.
"In the summertime, we
have overheating cases,
and in the winter, we see
some hypothermia cases,
but dogs are usually more
sensitive to the heat than
the cold," Leavens said.
"An important thing to
remember is that once a
dog overheats, you can't
cool them down too fast
because they have lost
their ability to thermal
regulate." Leavens said
that rubbing alcohol will
help cool a dog when
applied to the pads of its
feet. Also, cool towels can
be used. A good tip for
warming an animal is to
use a towel that has been
in a clothes dryer for
about 10 to 15 minutes.
Hot water or ice water
should never be used.
CPR steps
If a pet is choking or has
stopped breathing, CPR
can be performed,
according to
Healthypet.com, though
the success of
resuscitation is very low.
Place your pet on a firm
surface, with its left side
up. Check for a heartbeat,
then close the animal's
mouth and breathe directly

Presidential poker pictures find audience


Andy Thomas' paintings of recent presidents
depict the lighter side of their personalities
By Scott Meeker
CNHI News Service

CARTHAGE, Mo. It was a portrait of Abraham Lincoln,
but there was a subtle difference about it that took some
people by surprise. It was the smile. "All of the photographs
of Lincoln show him with a dour face," said artist Andy
Thomas of the painting he did a number of years ago.
"Everybody took dour photographs back then." But Lincoln
had a great sense of humor. There was a melancholiness about
him sometimes, but all through his presidency he was a great
story teller and joke teller." With his back to the viewer in one
of Thomas' latest works, there's no way to tell if the 16th
president has a grin on his face. But the rest of the "Grand 01'
Gang" gathered merrily around the poker table Theodore
Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford,
Ronald Reagan, George Bush and George W. Bush are
flashing smiles, so he'd be in good company. The former
Democrat leaders depicted in a second painting, "True Blues,"
are also having a good time as they play a hand: Andrew
Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry
Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter
and Bill Clinton. Everyone's familiar with the painting of dogs
playing poker. Now, it's time for the "Big Dawgs Playing
Poker." The oil paintings that Thomas finished in the spring
were unveiled in September at a national dealer convention,
and are finding a receptive audience as the country heads
toward the next presidential election.
Plotting and planning
The idea of taking recognizable faces and incorporating
them into an artistic mash-up isn't a new one for Thomas.
About four years ago, he had the idea to paint Captain Henry
Morgan and his pirates celebrating their adventures in the
harbor town of Port Royal in Jamaica. "They would go get this
fabulous plunder and go back and have debauchery for a
month," Thomas said. "I thought it would be cool to paint the
scene when they were back in the port town. "As he began, he
decided to incorporate a few dead American musicians into
the crowd. The list grew, and by the time he finished, more
than 26 musicians were included in the painting. Looking
closely, one can spot the likes of Jim Croce, Janis Joplin, Elvis
Presley and Kurt Cobain among the revelers. "It became
almost like a history of American music. It's typical of the way
things just get out of control," Thomas said, laughing. It was
one of the paintings that came to mind when brainstorming for
ideas, said Larry Smith, CEO and president of Somerset Fine
Arts, the Fulshear, Texas-based company that distributes
Thomas' works to dealers around the country. "We were
plotting and planning for this fall and next year, and wanted
something fun for the long political season ahead," Smith said.
His discussions with Thomas led to the idea for the paintings
of presidents sitting around the poker table, and the artist got
to work. "Your first thought is putting their personalities into
,the paintings, pro or con," Thomas said. "I started doing some
sketches and showed them to a couple of people." He soon
realized, ho\ e\ er, that people of both political persuasions are
protective and sensitive when it comes to their favorite
presidents. A glower here, a paranoid glance there any slight


negative in the paintings could hurt feelings. "I learned that
political satire is good for the editorial page, but not to hang
up on the wall," he said. "I took all satire out of it."
Capturing the flavor
Thomas said he and Smith went through the list of
American presidents to determine which should be featured in
the painting. "We went down the list and it evolved from
there," he said. "Hands down, the choice to feature on the
Republican side was Ronald Reagan. You go to the
Democrats, and it's a little different. When I was a kid, FDR
was the icon, and then JFK. Then, really, it became Bill
Clinton. I know a lot of people still don't like him, but there's
no doubt he's going to go down as an icon of the Democratic
party." From there, he researched his subjects and tried to add
the kind of little details that help give the paintings more
personality such as political logos on the playing cards, the
jelly beans on the table in front of Reagan, Roosevelt's Rough
Riders hat sitting behind him, the Hawaiian shirt sported by
Truman and the cane hung over the back of Jackson's chair.
"Jackson carried a cane," Thomas said. "He had caned a man
... two or three men, actually ... it was a more violent time. I
made the head of the cane a pewter donkey." The early
sketches found the presidents gathered around the poker tables
with a plain background behind them. It didn't work, Thomas
said, until he hit on the idea of setting them backstage at a
political convention. "The conventions used to be a lot of
fun," he said. "They actually chose the candidate at them. It's
all just a stageshow now. "I had the pleasure of watching the
1972 Democratic convention from start to finish. I was sick
and wound up watching the whole thing. There were fistfights
and yelling ... the flavor of the conventions is something that
is really missing."
Surpassing the concept
A full-time artist since 1991, Thomas specializes in works


that showcase his love of history, such as paintings that depict
Civil War battles west of the Mississippi. They're pieces that
require plenty of research to get right. Depicting 16 of the
nation's presidents was no different, and the artist said that
painting the "Big Dawgs" was an education. "I learned a lot
about them," Thomas said. "And I would say that I grew to
like every one of them." The "Big Dawgs" were unveiled by
Somerset Fine Art at an art trade show in Atlanta, Ga., in
September, said Smith, and have become a runaway success.
"They're the hottest-selling product some of our dealers have
had in several years," Smith said. "Andy's the man here."
While Thomas credits Smith for coming up with the idea,
Smith is quick to put all of the credit with the Carthage artist.
"You can have any concept you want, but the real element of
pulling this off was Andy," he said. "He's fantastic ... the man
can paint anything." The artist brings something that surpasses
a concept. Andy made studies of the presidents, and he put a
lot of what I call 'activity for the eye' into the images that
make them a lot of fun." Earlier this month, Thomas shipped
the original "Big Dawgs" paintings to Greenhouse Gallery in
San Antonio, Texas, an art gallery he works with regularly.
Greenhouse will put them on display and then offer them for
sale early next year. Prints are being sold around the country,
and Thomas said he's happy with the reception they're getting
from dealers and art buyers. "They've already been made into
puzzles," he said. "That's the height of cultural achievement in
America." For more information, visit

Upcoming show
Western art is also among Andy Thomas' passions. The
artist has two works that will be featured next year in a
national show dedicated to artist Charles M. Russell in Great
Falls, Mont. Scott Meeker writes for The Joplin (Mo.) Globe.
