Check toy

Submitted
Attorney General Bill McCollum recent-

presents. According to the US Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more
than 50 toys have been recalled since the
beginning of the year, most due to toxic
levels of lead or lead paint. The toys in-
clude popular brands such as Mattel and
Fisher-Price and millions of "must-have"
toys such as certain Thomas & Friends

wooden railway, toys,
Aqua Dots craft kits and
some Barbie doll acces-
sories.
The dangers don't stop
with lead exposure, as evi-
denced with the recall this
month of the Aqua Dots


craft kit because of toxic
coating on the toy that ren-
dered at least two children
unconscious. While most
toys. should at. this point
have been pulled from
store shelves, McCollum
encouraged parents to go
back and check any toys
they may have purchased
earlier in the year before re-


calls were announced. Re-
called toys can also occa-
sionally show up at flea
markets and resale shops.
To make it easier for par-
ents to keep track of the re-
calls, the Attorney Gener-
al's Office is providing a
"Do Not Shop" List con-
taining the most recently
recalled toys for parents to


print and take into stores
when holiday shopping.
The list, along with links
to the CPSC's website is
available at www.myflori-
dalegal.com. A current list
of toys .recalled this year
can also be found at

calls.html.


Common sense about Staph infections


By 'Russell Eggert, MD, MPH,
Director
Division of Disease Control
Florida Department of Health
As. the Florida Depart-
ment of Health's Director
of Disease Control, I have
been very concerned about
recent articles and media
reports about infections
due to methicillin-resistant
Staphylococcu- aureus
(MRSA). In order to clarify
some misconceptions and
ease some fears, I would
like to provide some impor-
tant facts and some recom-
mendations, to lower the,
risk of infection.
Staphylococcal infections
have been around forever.
They cause boils and other
skin and soft tissue infec-
tions. They can. also cause
serious infections and in
severe cases even death if
the infection spreads wide-
ly beyond its original loca-
tion. People who are not in
good health or whose im-
mune systems are compro-
mised are particularly- at
risk for severe infections.


Most infections with
Staphylococcus aureus
have: no symptoms. As
many as a quarter of all
healthy children and adults
may be carriers of this or-
ganism in their noses at any
time. According to a recent
article in the Journal of the
American Medical Associa-
tion;(JAMA), 85% with this
organism occur in people
who have had recent con-
tact with a health care facil-.
ity.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), staphy-
lococcal infections, includ-
ing MRSA, that are ac-
quired, outside the health
care setting occur most fre-
quently among persons
where the five C's are pre-
sent: crowding, contact (fre-
quent skin-to-skin), com-
promised skin (cuts or
abrasions), contaminated
items and surfaces, and
lack of cleanliness.
Settings where these 5 C's
may be present include
workplaces where cuts and
abrasions are' common,
crowded living and work-
ing spaces like fishing
boats, jails and prisons, and
sports settings where ath-
leteshave frequent physical
contact and share equip-
ment.
In Florida,.the rate of hos-


pital discharges, (represent-
ing serious and invasive
disease) where Staphylo-
coccus aureus infection was
the primary reason for the
hospital stay. has remained
steady over the last seven
-years. Similarly, death rates
due to Staphylococcus au-
reus infection have re-
mained stable -over the
same interval. However,
the percentage of a
statewide sample of outpa-
tient illnesses (representing
milder, non-invasive dis-
ease) due to Staphylococcus
aureus that are methicillin-
resistant (MRSA) has risen
slightly.
When. antibiotics were
first introduced in the 1930s
and 1940s, staphylococcal
infections were the most
important targets of these
new "miracle" drugs.
Staphylococcus. aureus has
repeatedly developed resis-
tance to the most common-.
ly used antibiotics as they
were introduced first to
penicillin; then to methi-
cllin, now even to more re-
cently introduced, antibi-
otics., This is one of the
strongest reasons for physi-
dans, patients and parents
to use antibiotics only when
they are necessary and not
for common viral infec-
tions.
* Prevention of staph infec-


tions is so simple that many
people do not imagine it
could be effective, but it is:
Wash hands frequently
whenever they are soiled or
have been exposed to mate-
rials that may be contami-
nated.
Be careful when doing ac-
tivities that may result in
cuts and scratches. Wash
cuts. and scratches with
soap and water and then
keep them clean and dry.
Keep skin infections such
as boils or infected wounds
covered and treat them
promptly with both local
care (such as drainage of
boils) and .appropriate an-
tibiotics for the entire dura-
tion, as prescribed by your
healthcare provider.
Do not participate in con-
tact sport if' you have a
skin infection unless the le-
sions can be securely cov-
ered. Clean locker rooms
and sports equipment rou-
tinely with a disinfectant.
Avoid sharing personal
items such as towels or ra-
zors, or sports equipment
that touches skin.

Chamber News


Submitted
Hamilton County Cham-
ber of Commerce had their
monthly Board Meeting on
Thursday, Nov. 1, in the
Economic and Tourism Of-
fice, at the Courthouse An-
nex (the old high school),
in Jasper. The Chamber
members discussed mem-
bership, economic devel-
opment, Chamber happen-
ings, special events, educa-
tion of youth, and tourism.
During the meeting Katie
Rooney was voted as sec-
retary/treasurer for this
term. Congratulations,
Katie!
On Thursday, Nov. 15,
the Chamber held their
Chamber Mixer at North
Florida PAWS in Jennings,
hosted by Katie Rooney.
The facility is located on N
US 41, 1/2 mile from the
state line on the right.
Rooney explained the
mission of North Florida
PAWS.


"In addition to helping
owners of pet dogs and
cats prevent unwanted
puppies and kittens, the
impact on public safety by
preventing literally thou-
sands of unwanted dogs
and cats every year is
enormous. Public safety
primarily concerns strays
roaming loose causing po-
tential exposure to rabies
and other zoonotic dis-
eases, the risk of accidents
due to strays on the roads,
and attacks from danger-
ous dogs on people, pets,
and livestock. As compas-
sionate human beings, we
are concerned about pre-
venting suffering. As
Chamber members desir-
ing to increase businesses
' and home buyers in our
'area, we are concerned
about how animals roam-
ing loose on the roads and
in our subdivisions and
towns affect potential buy-
ers' opinions of our area.


The more we prevent, the
better off everyone will
be."
Rooney gave the guests
a tour of the clinic -and in-
troduced them to staff
who would be assisting
with the clinic. She also
presented a plaque to Matt
Marable and Gayle
Marable, owners of
Marable Construction,
who built the clinic and
her home. It was a great
turn out!

Trojans gather more wins


Submitted
The Hamilton County
High School varsity boys
basketball team won both
games last week, defeating
Jefferson in Monticello and
Bradford at home. The Tro-
jans' record is now 3-0 as
they enter district play.
At Monticello on Thurs-
day night, Hamilton
jumped out of the Tigers
quickly, taking an 11-2 lead
early in the game. From
there, the Trojans used
pressure defense and terrif-
ic rebounding to take a
commanding 51-16 lead
into the half. There is a rule
in Florida high school bas-
ketball that once a team
takes a 35 point lead, the
clock runs constantly (ex-
cept for time outs). With
that rule, the second half
was a short one as Hamil-
ton rolled to a 65-35 victo-
ry.
Junior Josh Jones led
three Trojans scoring in
double figures with 14
points. Senior Malcolm Pol-
lock scored 12 and senior
Robin McClain scored 10.
Other players who scored
were Vion Lanier (7),
Ti'Wan Cooks (6), Mark
Jolly (5), Jacaris Stubbs (4),
Anthony Stevens (2), Josh
Paul (2), Gareth Johnson (2)
and Ryan Mathis (1).,
Jones was also the lead-
ing rebounder as he gar-
nered a double-double on
the night with 11 rebounds.
McClain had nine re-
bounds and Stubbs pulled
down eight.


The Trojans out-re-
bounded the Tigers, 56-29,
for the game and other Tro-
jans who had rebounds in-
cluded Paul (5), Lanier (5),
Jolly (4), Cooks (3), Johnson
(3), Stevens (2), Pollock (2),
Jermaine Walker (2), and
Mathis (2).
Hamilton ended the
game with a total of 13
steals. Leading the charge
in this category was Mc-
Clain who had a total of
five steals. Howard Webb,
Pollock, and Lanier each
had two steals as well.
The Trojans were led in
assists.by Jones who had a
total of three dimes on the
night. Jolly led HCHS with
two blocked shots off the
bench.
Coach Patrick Murphy
said, "I am really pleased
with the way we came in
and played hard and
played as a team."
On Saturday night,
Hamilton played host to
the Class 4-A Bradford
High Tornadoes. Bradford
has always had good teams
so it looked to be a nice bat-
tle shaping up in Jasper.
The first half did not dis-
appoint as the game went
back and forth with Hamil-
ton taking as much as an
eight point lead but the
Tornadoes fought right
back. At halftime, HCHS
led 36-32.
Bradford came out and
scored the first basket of
the second half. After each
team scored, Hamilton led
38-36 with 6:10 remaining


in the third quarter. Nei-
ther team scored in the next
minute of play and then se-
nior Pollock made a nice
pass to fellow senior Mc-
Clain for a layup. That be-
gan a 12-2 Trojan run for
the rest of the quarter. The
run was highlighted by
three steals by junior guard
Cooks. Junior Jones also
pitched in six points during
the crucial run that made
the score 48-38 with 1:34
left in the third quarter.
At that point, the second
team came in to give the
starters a rest and really
started out well, stealing
three consecutive Bradford
passes. Unfortunately, the
Trojans could not convert
on the steals. However, se-
nior Stevens made a nice
move to score on a driving
layup to end the quarter.
HCHS led 50-38.
The same players started
the fourth quarter and
stretched the Trojan lead to
18 with 5:15 left. Junior
Lanier ignited the 9-3 Tro-
jan run to start the 4th
quarter with seven points,
one on an acrobatic tip in
after a missed layup.
The Tornadoes didn't
quit though, scoring six
points in a row to make it
59-47 Hamilton with 3:52
left.
Jones found Pollock for
two points. Cooks scored
two. more. Then, Jones
scored another two on a
putback and the Trojans
led 65-47 with 2:40 remain-
ing in the game. Hamilton


cruised to victory with a fi-
nal score of 69-55.
Hamilton had 10 differ-
ent players score, led by
Pollock's 16 points. Jones
(13), Lanier (11), and Cooks
(10) rounded out the dou-
ble digit scorers. Other
players who scored were
Walker (5), Stevens (4), Mc-
Clain (4), Webb (3), Paul
(2), and Johnson (i).
The Trojans out-re-
bounded the Tornadoes,
39-31, and was led by
Jones' 12 boards. Other
players with rebounds


were McClain (5), Lanier
-(5), Pollock (4), Cooks (3),
Jolly (2), Stevens (2), Paul
(2), Webb (2), Walker (1),
and Stubbs (1).
Leading Hamilton in
steals was Cooks, who end-
ed up with four thefts on
the night. Pollock and
Lanier also added three
steals.
Jones also led the team in
assists with a total of six for
the night. Cooks pitched in
with four assists as well.
Seven other Trojans had at
least one assist as Hamilton


ended up with a total of 20
assists on the night.
Jolly led the team in
blocked shots with two.
"I am extremely proud of
the way the guys respond-
ed in the second half. I felt
like we could have played
better in the first half than
we did and I was happy to
see us play much better in
the second half."
The Trojans have gotten
off to a great start. Come
out and support the Tro-
jans!

It is hard to believe that
Thanksgiving Day has
come and gone, still believ-
ing that we have so much
to be thankful for every
day. Hope you all had a
good day and are getting
ready for Christmas. The
decorations are beautiful
around town and in the
county. I miss the years
that we had our yard so
beautifully decorated (at
least we thought so and
loved it). Now I do love to
go around town and see
yours.
Back to Thanksgiving, I
am sure you had great get-
togetherings. I have been
slow about getting to peo-
ple, but would love to hear
from you. I know Jimmy
and Dot DeVane were hav-
ing a cane grinding the day
after Thanksgiving with a
crowd of people. I was un-


able to go this year, but it is
always a blessing. Also
Elizabeth Deas and her
family were grinding cane
sometime during that
week .... Let me know if
you had family and friends
during this time.
It was a privilege for me
to be invited to First Bap-
tist Church for a supper
sponsored by the Sr. Men's
Sunday Schpol Class. Some
of my friends, our ladies'
breakfast group, invited
me and the men really put
on a feast. So many friends
we do not get to visit with
very often. Martha Ruth
Henderson picked me up
for this occasion, and Sue
Fennell had invited me
also. Both of these ladies
and I celebrated our 80th
birthday very close togeth-
er; we have reached anoth-
er milestone together.


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


And about the Baptists,
we will certainly miss Pas-
tor Bill and Gail as they
leave for other fields. They
have been an important
part of our community, not
only in their church, Gall at
school, and other events,
always around. We wish
God's blessings on them as
they go into this new ad-
venture.
Once more we are made
aware of what wonderful
people live among us. On
Saturday when "we
ladies" were having our
first Saturday breakfast at
H&F, I learned that my tire
was flat. I had noticed
there was a problem of

so we enjoyed the beautiful
scenery with the fall colors,
and small towns along the
way. We have made a tradi-
tion of having lunch at lylay
Bob's Dinner in Irvington,
Ga., a great place to eat with
the local folks. May Bob's is
in the center of town, which
is located on top of a hill
and next to the county cour-
thouse.
Our first lunch there was
in 2002 and a murder trial
was in progress at the cour-
thouse, so when we arrived


we had lunch with all the
courthouse staff judges,
attorneys, law enforcement
officers, reporters and just
plain citizens from the
gallery. Everyone was a-
buzz over the trial and be-
fore lunch was over we
gained enough knowledge
that we could have sat on
the jury. If yodt have not
traveled US 41 through
Georgia to the Carolina's in
a while you must make the
trip soon as they are mak-
ing US 41 a four lane and
bypassing these small
town's which are the back-
bone of America.
Down to business. At the
Dec. 11 Town Council
meeting, beginning at 5:15
p.m. at the Town Hall meet-
ing room, the Council will
begin with a workshop to
discuss the Recreation ele-
ment of the town's compre-
hensive plan. The Council
will consider public com-
ment on new outdoor recre-
ation projects and how to


fund them.
At 6:15 p.m. the Council
will hold a public hearing to
discuss possible charter
amendments. The two pro-
posed amendments for con-
sideration at this time are to
amend the charter to allow
citizens not residing within
the corporate limits of the
town to be appointed to
committees that serve the
town. This would allow cit-
izens to be appointed by the
Council to serve on differ-
ent committees; at present
we have so many volun-
teers that reside just out of
town and currently cannot
serve as a voting board
member.
-The second proposal is to
amend the charter to
change the supervision of
the Police Chief from the
Town Council to the Town
Manager. This would
streamline the supervision
process and remove the
current issue that if one or

Mac's place and I met them
there. And now home folks
have come back to Jasper
to open Hardee's; that says
something about how we

Farm City Week Breakfast


Submitted
The Hamilton County
Farm Bureau celebrated
Farm City Week on Thurs-
day, Nov. 15, at the local
VFW building, with nearly
50 members and guests at-
tending. The Hamilton
County Farm Bureau has
been sponsoring Farm City
Week Breakfast celebra-
tions for more than 10
years.
Dana Brooks, National
Affairs Director for the
state organization, was
special speaker for the
event. Brooks' expertise is
in the current Farm Bill De-
bate and other nationally
related issues that affect
farmers in Hamilton Coun-
ty and the state.
Also in attendance was
Hamilton County's current
member of the House of
Representatives, Will
Kendrick. This is Rep.
Kendrick's final term in
the House, due to term
limits.
An official proclamation
was signed by county and


city officials designating
the week leading up to,
and including Thanksgiv-
ing Day, as the official
Farm City Week for
Hamilton County. Farm
City Week was first started
over 50 years ago by Kiwa-
nis Clubs International to
foster better understand-
ing between those who live
in urban areas of the coun-
try and those who live on
farms and ranches in
America.
According to Damon
Deas, Hamilton County
Farm Bureau President, we
are lucky to live in rural
America, because every-
one already knows just
how important farming is
to the local economies of
small, rural towns. How-
ever, Farm City Week is
also being celebrated in the
larger cities of our state,
such as Jacksonville, Mia-
mi and Orlando.
The local FFA Chapter,
headed by Advisor Keith
Wynn, assisted with serv-
ing the morning meal.

We are now "on the count-
down" till Christmas. Don't
forget about the annual Fes-
tival of Lights event in White
Springs this Saturday, Dec.
8. The -parade will begin at
5:30 p.m. behind New Bethel
AME and will "wind" down
U.S. 41 terminating inside
the Stephen Foster State
Park. A hot dog supper will
be served in Nelly Bly's
Kitchen and there will be a
musical concert inside the
Museum beginning at 7 p.m.
Mark your calendars and
make your plans to attend
this Yuletide happening on
the banks of the Suwannee.
The price is right. One small

all these wonderful indi\id-
uals.
, Our prayers go out to our
dear friend, Mrs. Marie
Hickson, who, 'at this writ-
ing, is not getting along well
and also' to Edwin Lindsey,
who is not well. These indi-
viduals, along with many
others, are in our prayers
and thoughts.
If an indi Odual wanted to
purchase something that is
indicative of our area, why
not go on amazon.com and
order a copy of Lillian
Smith's A Memory of a
Large Christmas. The story
is set in what was the Jim
Corbett house in Jasper and
is a delightful holiday -4tory
set before the First World
War. I saw Dr. Mickler's
photo in the paper receiving
an award for his : service to
the nursing home in Jasper.
During the time of my Dad-
dy's illness and .subsequent
death in 1993, I don't know
what we would have done
had it not been for the kind-
ness and profe-sionahsm of
Dr. Bembry and Dr. Mickler;
as well as other health-pro-
fessionals in the county,
Amelia Hunter Tompkins,
Darlene Parr,: Lua Mae
Sistrunk,- and so, many,
many others. You may think
that I don't remember, but I
do remember who could
forget this kind of kindness.
We have been so blessed
,to have so many outstanding
and wonderful medical and
dental "professionals in our
area including the late Dr.
Wade B. Norris Sr., and Dr.
Wade "Ben" Norris Jr., :as
well as Dr. Jerry Smith who I
was delighted to see down at
the Stephen Foster for our
annual Florida Folk Festival.
April Lumpkin Wallace
does an outstanding job tak-
ing care of so many 6f us
'down at the Dollar General
Store. I don't know what we
did in White Springs before
we got our Dollar Store. It is
a blessing to me as well as to
many others. I appreciate all
the friendly staff at our Dol-
lar Store, and I appreciate the
convenience of having this
nice store so dose to me.
Have a good week, Hamil-
ton County
Iove you.

By Chelle Koster Walton
Florida's early roadside attractions
strove to satiate America's appetite
for the eccentric with rare animals,
flamboyant gardens, crowd-thrilling
acts and human oddities. Many such
attractions .became extinct with the
rise of the state's major theme parks.
Others adapted to the changing times
and anew environmental conscious-
ness to endure as a precious bit of
Florida history. Flash back at any of
these:

CYPRESS GARDENS
ADVENTURE PARK,
Winter Haven, 863-324-2111,
www.cypressgardens.comrn
Dick and Julie Pope launched Cen-
tral Florida's tradition of theme parks
in the 1930s when they enhanced their
gorgeous gardens with Southern
belles and stunt water-skiers. The
classic park has recently reopened af-
ter undergoing major enhancements to
resurrect its trademark traditions, !
along with some thoroughly modern
twists. Don't miss the butterfly ar-
boretum and ice-skating extravagan-
zas, along with five roller coasters
and 33 other rides.

GATORLAND,
Orlando, 407-855-5496 or
800-393-JAWS,
www.gatorland.com
Gnarly and tyrannisaurish, 'gators
became emblematic of Florida road-
side attractions. Nothing drew in the
crowds like these chompers. Many at-
tractions devoted themselves primari-
ly to the prehistoric beasts, including
Gatorland, an alligator farm that
opened in 1948. Through the years it
has introduced snakes and other ani-
mals, shows, a get-wet playground
and a petting zoo.,

KEY WEST AQUARIUM,
Key West, 305-296-2051,
www.keywestaquarium. corn


When Key West toppled from its
position as one of the country's rich-
est towns to one of its poorest, the
federal government sent the Works
Project Administration in 1932 to
build an open-air aquarium and jump-
start tourism. The Key West Aquari-
um today lures visitors with homey
charm and the promise of petting a
shark during the tour. To show its eco-
conscience, it has become involved in
raising baby sea turtles in conjunction
with the Marathon Turtle Hospital.

MARINELAND,
Marineland (south of St. Augustine),
904-460-1275,
www.mrnarineland.net
Tourists love dolphins, seals and all
the creatures under the sea.
Marineland near St. Augustine capi-
talized on that love affair in June
1938, when it opened the world's first
"oceanarium," an aquarium that recre-
ates the ocean's diversity of marine
life. It thrilled early crowds with ma-
rine animal acts and a realistic view
of ocean life. Today it takes an eco-
logical and interactive course with
dolphin, encounter programs and scu-
ba diving in the 1.3 million gallon se-
ries of dolphin habitats.

MONKEY JUNGLE,
Miami, 941-355-5305;
www.monkeyjungle.comr
Here, monkeys in the wild peer
down at you in YOUR cage. Mon-
key Jungle began in 1933 as an exper-
iment on the territorial instincts of
monkeys. Uncaged, the crab-eating
macaque monkeys.hung around. Peo-
ple came to look. When the monkeys
objected to the intruders, founder
Frank DuMond built cages for the vis-
itors. Amazonian monkeys have
joined the jungle, along with others,
including tamarins, for which Frank
pioneered a breeding program.

ST. AUGUSTINE ALLIGATOR
FARM ZOOLOGICAL PARK,
St. Augustine, 904-824-3337,
www.alligatorfarm.com
In a city full of "oldest" superla-
tives, St. Augustine Alligator Farm
opened in 1893 to score as the world's
first of its kind. During its 110-plus
years, the park has grown from a
commercial farm raising alligators
and staging 'gator wrestling to a zoo-
logical park with the world's only
complete collection of crocodilians,
not to mention snakes, monkeys, birds
and educational wildlife shows.

SILVER SPRINGS,
Ocala, 352-236-2121,
www.silversprings.com
In 1878, Hullam Jones glued a win-
dow to the bottom of a rowboat and
simultaneously invented Florida
tourism and the glass-bottom boat.
Now grown to a 350-acre animal and
nature park,' it has added live animal
exhibits and shows, a water park,
Wilderness Trail, Kids Ahoy! Play-
land and the brand-new Lighthouse
Ride and Fantastic Fountains Water
Show.

SUNKEN GARDENS,
St. Petersburg, 727-551-3100,
www.stpete.org/sunken.htm
Sunken Gardens began in 1935 as
one man's obsession with Florida's
ability to flourish. Visitors paid to
peek and before you knew it, tourism
overgrew the gardens. Residents and
the city saved Sunken Gardens from
demise in 1999. Today the classic at-
traction has taken on a new mission to
educate, adding butterflies and rain-
forest programs to the lush waterfall-
splashed gardens.

WEEK WACHEE SPRINGS,
Weeki Wachee, 352-596-2062,
www.weekiwachee.comrn
Esther Williams and Don Knotts
were among the stars filmed on loca-
tion at Weeki Wachee, a.k.a. Mermaid
City near Spring Hill. The park and
its underwater mermaid theater
opened in 1947 when a Navy frogman
instructor devised a way for his sexy
and sequined mermaids to breathe
through hoses under water. Today, a
wilderness river cruise, a mermaid
museum and school, water slides and


flumes have added modern appeal to
the classic underwater mermaid
shows.

What to Know About Cataracts


As the aging process runs its course, it's expected the
body will go through certain changes. A slower
metabolism, a reduction in stamina and a few extra pounds
are some of the experiences of aging.
Another frequent development as people grow older is a
loss of vision. According to the National Eye Institute
'(NEI), by the age of 80 more than half of all Americans
either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Such
figures illustrate the importance of understanding cataracts
and what, if anything, can be done to avoid being another
number among the cataract-having masses.

What Are Cataracts?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens that can impair a
person's vision. This impairment occurs because the lens
helps to focus light on the retina, which needs a clear lens
in order to receive a sharp image. If the lens isn't clear (as
is the case when a person has a cataract), the image
received by the retina will be blurred. Though cataracts
cannot be spread from one eye to the other, they can occur
in both eyes.

Aren't Cataracts Solely a Concern
for the Elderly?
While the majority of people with cataracts are elderly,
that doesn't mean younger people, and even babies, cannot
be stricken with a cataract. That's because cataracts come
in different forms.
Age-related cataracts: These are the cataracts most
people instantly think of. They develop as a result of aging.
Traumatic cataracts: Anytime a person injures an eye,
there's the possibility that a traumatic cataract will
develop. What's more, these types of cataracts aren't on a
timetable and can develop years after the trauma occurred.
Congenital cataracts: These can occur in infants or even
older children and typically occur in both eyes. Sometimes,
they go unnoticed because they do not affect vision. When
they do affect vision, lens removal might be necessary.
Secondary cataracts: These are often the result of
another disease, such as diabetes, or another eye problem,
like glaucoma. Overexposure to ultraviolet light can also
cause cataracts. The NEI notes that secondary cataracts
have been linked to steroid use as well.

How Do I Know If I Have a
Cataract?
Just because you have a cataract doesn't mean you know
it. That's because cataracts develop slowly and the
symptoms are not overwhelming. Some of the more
common symptoms include:
blurry vision
excess glare, making certain forms of light, such as


Contrary to popular belief, children, and young people in general, are hot
immune to cataracts.
headlights, lamps or sunlight, appear too bright
difficulty driving at night because of oncoming headlights
double vision, a symptom that might clear as the cataract
continues to develop
Fading of colors

What Can Be Done to Prevent
Cataracts?
Prevention of cataracts can be difficult because there is no
concrete cause. However, certain behaviors have been linked
to-cataracts, and therefore avoiding those behaviors can
lessen a person's risk. According to the NEI, smoking and
alcohol use are risk factors for cataracts. In addition,
researchers believe diabetes and cataracts are linked.
The good thing about these risk factors is that they can be
controlled. People who don't have diabetes should eat
healthfully (a diet that includes green, leafy vegetables and
fruit) and exercise, while all people should avoid smoking
and drinking alcohol in excess. It's also good to have a yearly
eye exam, particularly for middle-aged adults and those older.
People with a history of eye problems or who have
experienced eye trauma in the past should also have yearly
exams, regardless of age, NEI recommends people over the
age of 60 should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at
least once every two years.
Another way to prevent the onset of cataracts is to keep
eyes protected from the sun at all times. Since prolonged
exposure to sunlight is a risk factor for cataracts, be sure to
wear sunglasses whenever going out in the sun. For those
with glasses, consider clip-on prescription lenses that attach
directly to the lenses of eyeglasses.
To learn more about cataracts, visit the National Eye
Institute Web site at www.nei.nih.gov.

* Fourth generation Italian olive oil producer, Giovanni Colavita,
says that the superior flavor, aroma and nutrients in extra virgin
olive oil make it the optimal choice for dipping and for season-
ing nibs. It's also ideal for low to medium heat cooking.
* For perfect be.e f ro.l, always use a. thermometer to check the
internal temperature and don't skimp on standing time! During
standing, the temperature rises and the juices redistribute, result-
ing in easier carving and juicy beef.
* To get the most enjoyment, serve white wines at 500 to 55F -
colder temperatures minimize the flavors and aromas. Red wines
are best at 650 to 680F. Plan four to five glasses of wine from a
standard 750 mL bottle, and if there is any left over, refrigerate
the bottle (corked) three to five days.

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT CHRISTMAS?


By Pam Campbell


IJ /ave any of you ever thought about where
:/ f; we would be without Christmas? I don't
mean skipping the presents, or not. having
the hustle and bustle of the holiday sea-
son, or having a year without a Christmas tree, I mean what
if there was absolutely NO Christmas, ever?

You see Christmas is so much more than the hustle and
bustle of the hurried Holidays. Most people think that the
holidays are just gifts to buy, lists to make, cards to write,
decorating to d&o, cookies to bake, parties to plan, parties to
attend, Christmas programs, parades, festivals, pageants,
and helping the needy. Spending time with family and
friends, and all of the cookies and gifts and activities are a
wonderful part of the holiday, but they are not THE real
reason for the holiday. These things are a nice part of the
Christmas season, but they are not Christmas.

Christmas is Christ's birthday. "For unto you is born
this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the
Lord." Luke 2:11

You see we need to remember to celebrate the birth of
our savior. If it was not for his birth, there would be no
Christmas season, there would be no reason to celebrate.
Think about this, without the manger there would be no
cross. Where would we be without the cross? You see when
we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are celebrating a divine
miracle. Jesus came to this earth as a newborn baby, born of
a virgin who laid him a manger. When we sing the song
"Away in a Manger" we are singing of a very important
night, one of the most important of all. If God had not sent
his son Jesus to be born of a virgin and laid in the manger,
we would have no hope of salvation and healing, there
would be no hope for the world today.

Most of us think about the cross and about how Jesus
died on that cross for our sins, and he certainly did, but
what if he had never been born in Bethlehem? Without the
manger there would be no cross, without the cross there
would be no redemption for our sins. Christmas is all about
salvation, we celebrate the holiday giving one another gifts,
God gave us the greatest gift, he sent his son Jesus to be
born in a stable, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a
manger.

In the Bible we can read in Luke 2 about the birth of
Jesus. Luke 2:4-16 "So Joseph also went up from the town
of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of
David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be
married to him and was expecting a child. While they were
there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave
birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and
placed him in a manger, because there was no room for
them in the inn. And there were shepherds living out in the
fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An
angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the
Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the
angel said to them, "Do hot be afraid. I bring you good
news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in
the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is
Christ the Lord. This will be a.sign to you: You will find a
baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a
great company of the heavenly host appeared with the an-
gel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." When
the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shep-
herds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see
this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us
about." So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and
the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen
him, they spread the word concerning what had been told
them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at
what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all
these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds
returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they
had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told."

I wonder did the shepherds and the Wisemen really un-
derstand that this baby was really the savior of the world?
How did Mary really feel, did she really understand, that

the baby she gave birth to in Bethlehem would save the
world from sin? Did she realize that he was not only her
son, but her savior as well? What did Joseph really feel,
did he understand how important the son Mary had really
was, how did it feel to see God's son born? Many songs
and stories have been written over the years, but I wonder
has anyone ever really thought about how different every-
one's lives would have been without Jesus being born in
Bethlehem? Where would the world be today? Would we
be alive, would there be any hope, how would we live in a
world without a savior? Without the manger, where would
be? I know that many times I find myself talking to some-
one that knows the Lord and we will both say we could not
live a day without Jesus, or how in the world do people
make it without knowing the Lord? I myself could not
imagine living in this world if there had never been the
manger and there had never been the cross. It would be a
world without hope. When we celebrate Christmas this
year remember how very important Christmas is, without
Christmas there would never have been an Easter or Resur-
rection Day. Be very thankful that there is a Christmas to
celebrate. Because of CHRISTmas we have hope, Jesus
was born, he lived, he was crucified and died, and rose
from the dead and lives today. Now that is something to
celebrate! Let's remember to keep CHRIST in our Christ-
mas, it really is all about him. Christmas is a celebration of
Christ Jesus birthday. I was thinking about birthday's and
how most of us at some time have enjoyed a birthday with
our family and friends. We probably expect that we will
have a Birthday Cake, presents and maybe even a party. I
wonder what Jesus would like for his Birthday this year?
Have you thought to put him on your Christmas list?
Maybe he would like us to share his hope with someone
that is hurting. Remember, he says in Matthew 25: 35-40
that when we help someone else we are helping him. "That
when you do it unto the least of these you do it to him"
For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty,
and ye gave me drink: I. was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I
was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the right-
eous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hun-
gered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When
saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and
clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and
came unto thee? And'the King shall answer and say unto
them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it,
unto me." Maybe that is what Jesus would like for his
birthday for us to help others.

I know what Jesus wants the most of all, that is for us
to give him our hearts, to know him, to worship him, after
all he is the king of kings, the Lord of Lords, the savior of
the world. Will you come to him and really know him this
Christmas? He loves each of us so very much. He came as
a baby in the manger and went to the crops for our sins, his
love has no end, it is all around us. You see Jesus is God's
son, the savior of the world, he is the ultimate gift, he only
wants you to know him, to spend time with. him, to wor-
ship him, he loves you, he desires to meet your every need,
to comfort you, to love you, to help you, to use you to help
others, to give you his health,-his peace and his joy, all he
is looking for is your open heart.

The next time you sing or hear the song "Away in a
Manger" think about how important the manger is not
only to Christmas but to the cross, if Jesus had not been

Have any of you ever thought about where we would be
without Christmas? I don't mean just skipping the presents, or

was absolutely NO Christmas, ever? What if there never had
been a Christmas?

without the cross there would be no salvation.
Christmas is all about salvation, we celebrate the
holiday giving each other gifts, God gave us the
greatest gift of all, he sent his son Jesus to be
born in a stable, wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.

In the Bible we can read in the book of Luke
chapter 2 about the birth of Jesus. "So Joseph
went also. He went from the town of Nazareth in
Galilee to Judea. That is where Bethlehem, the
town of David, was. Joseph went there because
he belonged to the family line of David. He went
there with Mary to be listed. Mary was engaged
to him. She was expecting a baby.

While Joseph and Mary were there, the time
came for the child to be born. She gave birth to
her first baby. It was a boy. She wrapped him in,
large strips of cloth. Then she placed him in a
manger. There was no room for them in the inn.
There were shepherds living out in the fields '
nearby. It was night, and they were looking after
their sheep. An angel of the Lord appeared to
them. And the glory of the Lord shone around'
them. They were terrified.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid. I bring you good news of great joy. It is
for all the people. Today in the town of David a
Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the
Lord. Here is how you will know I am telling
you the truth. You will find a baby wrapped in
strips of cloth and lying in a manger." Suddenly
a large group of angels from heaven also ap-
peared. They were praising God. They said,
"May glory be given to God in the highest heav-
en! And may peace be given to those he is
pleased with on earth!" The angels left and went
into heaven. Then the shepherds said to one an-
other, "Let's go to Bethlehem. Let's see this thing
that has happened, which the Lord has told us
about." So they hurried off and found Mary and
Joseph and the baby. The baby was lying in the
manger. After the shepherds had seen him, they
told everyone. They reported what the angel had
said about this child All who heard it were
amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But
Mary kept all these things like a secret treasure
in her heart. She thought about them over and
over."

I wonder did the shepherds and the Wisemen
really understand that this baby was really the
savior of the world? How did Mary really feel,
she was a virgin, yet she was having a baby,
God's son? What did Joseph really feel, did he
understand how important this baby was? With-
out the manger, where would be? I could not
imagine living in this world if there had never
been the manger and there had never been the
cross. It would be a world without hope. When
we celebrate Christmas this year, remember how
very important Christmas is, without Christmas
there would never have been an Easter. Be very
thankful that there is a Christmas to celebrate.
Let's remember to keep CHRIST in our Christ-
mas. Christmas is a celebration of Christ Jesus
birthday. I wonder what Jesus would like for his
Birthday this year? Have you thought to put him
on your Christmas list? Maybe Jesus would like
us to help others.

I know what Jesus wants the most of all, that
is for us to give him our hearts. He came as a
baby in the manger and went to the cross for our
sins, his love has no end, it is all around us. This
Christmas be sure to sing Away in a Manger, and
really think about how amazing Christmas is. I
want to share the words to this song with you
here, I hope that you will sing it and remember
how important the manger is to Christmas.

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright skv

Looked down where He ..
lay
The little Lord Jesus .y '

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


Dear Classified Guys,
Last weekend I bought a sheet of ply-
wood and spent forty-five minutes
tying it to my roof rack. Considering
I only had some white nylon twine, it
became a feat of engineering to strap
it on. I ran twine over the hood,
around the bumpers and through
both the front door windows.
Tightening the last knot, I realized I
couldn't open the doors because I
tied them shut! As I contemplated
my stupidity, a guy pulled up with a
small utility trailer. He loaded a
dozen sheets of plywood, threw on a
strap and took off before I could pull
a Dukes of Hazard and slide through
my twine-infested window. Needless
to say, I was jealous. Now I want to
buy a small trailer. It would be useful
for the upcoming bathroom remodel-
ing I promised my wife. However, I
know nothing about trailers. How
much can it carry? Can I pull
one with a car or do I need -
a truck? Please help or I'll --
be strapping the new
shower stall to my roof.

Cash: Unless you have a few extra
hours to strap the bathroom supplies to
your roof, a small utility trailer is a
good idea.

& Todd "Carry" Holze

Carry: Besides, I'm not sure the
store would have enough twine for you.
Cash: As you can imagine, trailers
come in all shapes and sizes, from
small utility types to those designed to
carry heavy equipment.
Carry: In your case, a small trailer
like a 4' by 8' would work fine.
Although their specifications vary, they
will typically hold between 800 and
1000 pounds.
Cash: However before you buy one,
first look at the owner's manual of your
car to determine the vehicle's towing
capacity or if it can be used to tow a
trailer. For instance, a truck can pull


5000 pounds or more, but a small car
may be limited to only 1000 pounds.
Carry: Now when buying a small
used trailer, there are two main areas to
investigate. As always overall condition
is important, but you should also look
closely at the lights and the tires. Be sure
all the lights are in working order and the
tires are in good condition, not suffering
from any dry rot. It's best to find a trailer
where the tires don't need replacing.
Cash: As you have experienced, a
utility trailer can be very helpful.
However with all the time you save,
you wife may want you to remodel a
few other rooms.


Hitch Your Trailer
Normally we think of trailers as
something pulled behind a truck or a
car. However in the movie industry,
they have a slightly different meaning.
Most motion pictures today have a trail-
er that is shown prior to the movie's
release. The term was derived from the
days when the coming attractions were
shown at the end of a film, trailing the
main feature. However, patrons often
left the theater without watching them.
In today's movie theatres, these clips are
called previews and shown at the begin-
ning of the movie for better visibility.
Good Old Boys
The original TV series The Dukes of
Hazard made the bright orange 1969
Dodge Charger, known as The General
Lee, an icon. While the car's endless
stunt jumps seemed flawless, 309
General Lee's were used to produce the
series. Each jump typically damaged
the car's structural integrity sending it to
the scrap pile. As the series progressed,
finding more cars became increasingly
difficult, so producers started using
jump footage from previous episodes.

Camping for Two
Whenever my husband and I go
camping, he's bound to forget some-
thing. One year he forgot our sleep-
ing bags. That was a cold weekend.
The second time he forgot the
propane on our camping trailer. We
ate out a lot on that trip.
This year he was determined not to
forget a thing. For days he made a
list, checked it twice, and made sure
everything was packed before we left.
He got in the car confident we had
everything and pulled away. Less
than a mile down the road, he made a
u-turn and said, "I can't believe it."''
"What did you forget this time?" I
asked.
Glancing in the rear view mirror,
he replied, "I forgot to hitch up the
trailer!"
(Thanks to Leslie S.)



This boat doesn't have a "trailer",
but it does come well dressed.
