In a unique partnership, VFW Post 8095
joined Miss Florida Kylie Williams, and the
towns of Bonifay and Jasper, to provide items
for the soldiers in Iraq. A total of 77 boxes were
recently mailed scheduled to arrive in time for
Christmas.
Williams founded Realistic Support for Our
Troops to provide encouragement to service


men and women overseas. Miss Florida -Sun-
shine Princess Melea Kirk of Boni fay, who is be-

Williams, took the platform to heart. She spoke
at the Kiwanis Club and the Bonifay Chamber
of Commerce to request donations of items for
the boxes.

STAFF
Florida Agriculture and ConSumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging residents to use caution with any
type of fire until the state receives enough
rainfall to relieve drought conditions. Since
the beginning of the year 4.630 wildfires
have burned 582,486 acres of state and fed-
eral lands in Florida.
"The predicted forecast and the lack of
summer rainfall significantly increase the
probability that Florida will see a very ac-
tive wildfire season once again in 2008,"
Bronson said. "Lake Okeechobee is still
near record low levels, and drought condi-
tions plaguing the entire Southeast are con-
tributing to lowering water levels in areas
of northern Florida."

The drop in groundwater levels is due
primarily to a long-term rainfall deficit, ac-

The donations collected
by Melea combined with
the donations from the
faculty and staff of Cen-
tral Hamilton Elementary
(CHE) and Hamilton
County individuals,
made up the largest num-
ber of items that the
members of the VFW
have packed since they
began in June. Included
in each box were orna-
ments decorated by stu-
dents at CHE's After


School Program, as well
as Christmas cards and
letters written by stu-
dents at CHE.
The members of VFW
Post 8095 are humbled by
the generosity of the
many Hamilton County
residents who provided
items for the boxes. Post
members said, "Thank
you to all who made this
project possible. Rest as-
sured, your kindness will
bring many a smile as the
boxes are opened and the

riencing a 25-inch rain-
fall deficit for the past 24-
month period.
"Unfortunately it does
not look like we will see
any significant improve-
ment in drought condi-
tions anytime soon,"
Bronson said.
Latest predictions from
the National" Weather
Service Climate Predic-
tion Center suggest a
likelihood of below-nor-
mal rainfall through Feb-
ruary, and that' drought
conditions will worsen in
the region.
A Phase I Water Short-
age Advisory declared
by the District governing
board in November 2006
remains in effect, and
urges voluntary reduc-
tions in water use. Most
agricultural operations
throughout the District
already have implement-
ed measures to reduce
water waste by increas-
ing the efficiency of their
irrigation systems. Farm-
ers are continuing to
work with the District,
the Suwannee River Part-
nership, the Suwannee
River Resource Conser-'
vation' & Development,
Council's mobile irriga-
fion lab, and other part-
ners to develop water
conservation strategies.
Given the length of the
current drought and con-
tinued lack of rainfall,
the District asks all citi-
zens to conserve water
by following these prac-
tices:
Water lawns and land-
scapes no more than two


days a week, before 10
a.m. or after 4 p.m.
If you must wash your
vehicle or bathe your pet,
use an automatic shutoff
nozzle on the hose.
Use a broom, not a
hose, to clean debris
from sidewalks and dri-
veways.
Landscape with
drought-tolerant plants.
Fix leaks and/or install
water-saving devices on
toilets, faucets and show-
erheads.
Wash only full loads of
clothes and dishes; select
the minimum water-vol-
ume setting needed per
load.
Don't leave the faucet
running while brushing
teeth, shaving, or wash-
ing dishes.

and increased funding,
outside some inflation in-
creases, I am very con-
cerned about the impact
of future county tax cut-
backs as proposed under
the amendment due to be
on the ballot in January
2008. We haven't been
told any figures by local
governments, but just
based upon 30 years of
experience in working
with our county govern-
ments, I am very worried
about the future of our
public libraries."
Florida's public li-
braries are remarkably ef-
ficient in providing their
services. According fo the
National Center for Edu-
cation Statistics, Florida
libraries serve the public
at an average cost of
$26.59 per person annual-
ly 16 percent less than
the national average for
public library service.
Lean fiscal times, howev-
er, can challenge this effi-
ciency on a daily basis.
The FLA is promoting
continued funding and
support of public libraries
through a Campaign to
Convince Floridians of
the Value of Public Li-
braries.
"Clearly, decreased
funding for libraries
mean cuts to essential ser-
vices," said Florida Li-
brary Association (FLA)
Charlie Parker. "Future
funding cuts. will only
further jeopardize the
ability of public libraries
to serve the needs of all
Floridians."
Some of the most popu-
lar services at public li-
braries are free computer
usage and access to the
Internet, which are a ne-


cessity for millions of
Floridians who do not
have either one at home.
"For the millions of
Floridians without a com-
puter or Internet access at
home, public libraries'
connectivity is a necessi-
ty," said John Carlo
Bertot, Ph.D., Professor
and Associate Director of
the Information Use Man-
agement and Policy Insti-
tute at Florida State Uni-
versity. "Public libraries
have also become agents
of e-government by pro-
viding residents across
the state with Internet ac-
cess to local, state and
federal services, some of
which are available only
online."
A national study and a
survey of Florida's public
library directors found
that some state agencies
routinely direct recipients
without computer access
to local libraries to obtain
assistance in navigating
agency Web sites, apply-
ing for government bene-
fits and services or just to
seek additional informa-
tion.
"Internet access, and
electronic researching of
resources has increased in
recent years to become
one of our three main ac-
tivities," Hales said. "With
more and more govern-
ment, social and assis-
tance agencies, as well as
data, becoming available
only through on-line con-
nections, the use of li-
brary computers, for elec-
tronic government and
research is becoming in-
dispensable for many of
our citizens."

for children and one for
literacy. The Jasper Li-
brary has eight computers
for public use four for
the Internet, one for
email, two for children
and one for literacy. The
White Springs Library has
six public computers -
four for the Internet and
two for children.
Services to adults, both
non-fiction and fiction,
make up a third of the li-
braries' services in the
county, according to
Hales, and materials and
programming for youth
make up the other third.
The, Jennings Library
specializes in a strong lit-
eracy program because of
the many non-English
speakers who reside in
the area, Hales said. It
also have a very proactive
"gaming club" for teens
and preteens.
The Jasper Library has a
less robust literacy pro-
gram, according to Hales,
but it has a WorkForce
Development Computer
installation. It also partici-
pates in many community
activities and the public
meeting room is used by
area clubs and organiza-
tions.
The White Springs Li-
brary is closely tied into
all community activities.
Until the proposed new
library becomes a reality,
it is severely limited in
ways to upgrade its ser-
vices due to the layout
and age of the existing
structure.
The Hamilton County
libraries provide chil-
dren's programs within
the libraries and outside
the libraries, including
Preschool Storytimes and
Summer Reading Pro-
grams.

"Research has shown
the best predictor of chil-
dren's summer learning
loss or gain is whether or
not the child reads during
the summer," said Carole
Fire, independent Trainr-
ing and Library Consul-
tant. "Studies indicate
that children who partici-
pate in summer reading
programs increase both
their vocabulary and
reading comprehension
scores."
In addition to the life-
line they extend to com-
munities on a day-to-day
basis, many libraries have
also proven crucial to dis-
aster recovery. They have
served as temporary shel-
ters for hurricane sur-
vivors and emergency
personnel and as commu-
nication centers during
emergencies. They are of-
ten the only places with
working Internet connecL
tions and phone lines.
Disaster victims use these
services to' search for
missing family, check
weather and neighbor-
hood conditions and to
complete Federal Emer-
gency Management
Agency (FEMA) and in-
surance claim forms *on-
line.
Workers and victims
were able to use the Inter-
net at the White Springs
Library when it served as
a Red Cross center during
the floods in 1998, accord-
ing to Hales.
"Florida's public li-
braries are not a luxury,"
Parker said. "Floridians of
all ages treasure their lo-
cal libraries as vital con-
nections and resources for
fostering not only the lit-
eracy of our children, but
our adults as well."

Submitted
This time of year many,
people take advantage of
school breaks and the holi-
days to go on vacation, vis-
it friends, or just get out of
the house for holiday
shopping. Unfortunately,
empty homes also mean
burglars will have count-
less good prospects. "It's a
very vulnerable time for
homeowners," said Ray
Palermo, director of public
information for Teachers'
Insurance PlanTM. "People
are busy, distracted, and
not always focusing on the
more mundane things of
life, like making sure your
home is secure." He of-
fered a few precautions to
help prevent homeowners
from falling victim to
thieves this holiday sea-
son.
Start by making a full ex-
terior examination of the
house. Make sure all
locked doors and windows
have a tight fit when
closed. Check to see if
there's any "wiggle room"
that could give a thief
enough space to jimmy it
open. Walk around the en-


check for unfamiliar
charges. Contact the credit
card company right away
if there are any problems.
Victims of identity theft
should immediately report
it to the police and then ask
the national credit bureaus
to place a fraud alert on
their credit report. Keep
records of telephone calls
and follow up in writing
with credit bureaus, banks
and creditors.
Victims may call the At-
torney General's Fraud
Hotline at 1-866-9-NO-
SCAM (1-866-966-7226).

And the
By Rev. James L Snyder
I never have to check the
calendar to see if the Christ-
mas season is approaching.
As soon as the "season to be
jolly" approaches all those
jolly-challenged people be-
gin their sniping. I think
Jack Frost is nipping at
more than their noses and
some people are nipping at
more than hot chocolate.
The Christmas season is
filled with tradition. The
newest tradition to arrive
on bobsled is the annual
war on Christmas. I wait for
this annual tradition with
baited breath. (Actually, it's
eggnog.) In fact, I refuse to
start putting up any Christ-
mas decorations until the
war begins. After all, proto-
col is important to me, and
a tradition is a tradition.
It seems a little incongru-
ent to me that those who
are antiwar are usually the
ones behind the war on
Christmas. I guess war is
okay depending on the per-
son who starts it and what
you are against.
It is hard to justify that
the one time of year given
to "good cheer" someone is
complaining about the
"good cheer." Of all the
things in our world to com-
plain about, I am surprised
that this even registers on
somebody's radar. How
the war on Christmas
trumps the war on poverty
is something I guess I will
never understand.
However, some "powers
that be" call a moratorium
on. all other areas of the
world to complain about
and condemn Christmas.
Do not let this get around,
but I believe that these
complaining are somehow
related to the Tribe of Nin-
compoops. It may be. my
imagination but it seems
this tribe increases every
year. The' more they in-
crease in number the more
they decrease in intelli-
gence.

novel, The Christmas Carol,

., lb '


Scrooge
tried his best to destroy this
tribe by having Ebenezer
Scrooge converted. No
question, Scrooge who hat-
ed Christmas became the
biggest supporter of Christ-
mas that ever
was. .
What
Dickens
does not
reveal in his
novel is that
Ebenezer
Scrooge,
prior to his .
conver- .t
sio n, ,
had an
affair
with
the


Wicked ---
Witch of the West.
This love child was named
Nincompoop who begat
the tribe of Nincompoops
whose descendants are evi-
denced today. Their claim
to fame, as it were, is that
they hate Christmas.
I must point out, to their
credit, that they do not hate
everything about Christ-
mas. Like every other hyp-
ocrite,' they pick and choose
what they like and what
they hate.
Of course, everybody
knows what they hate
about Christmas. But what
they do not want you to
know is what they really
like about Christmas.
For example, those who
hate Christmas and are of-
fended by the idea of it are
never offended by Christ-
mas day off with pay. In
fact, no self-depraved Nin-
compoop would work on
Christmas day.; It is against',
their religion. 'i
Nor, are they offended by
receiving their annual
Christmas bonus. They
start looking for this begin-


Award goes 'to ...


flated mind, they see no
connection between Christ-
mas and their Christmas
bonus. The one does not
create the other. Where do
they think the Christmas
bonus comes from?
Maybe they think it,
comes from the same
origin that they came
from ... a mon-
key some-
where. Only a
guess on my
part.
Then, try to
have a Christ-
mas party


and d
not invite any
Nincompoop. I have been
to many Christmas parties
and I have noted the many
Nincompoops. Every party
has its share of Nincom-
poops. I just cannot figure
them out. They insist that
they come from monkeys
but at Christmas parties,
they act like donkeys.
I have yet to see any of
these people refuse a
Christmas present. They
are onr of the first to put
their name in to the gift ex-
change hat when it comes
around the office. They
look forward to unwrap-
ping their Christmas pre-
sent just like anybody else.
In spite'of all this, they
claim to be offended by
Christmas. Of all the things
-to complain about and tobe
offended by this one should
not even rate a considera-
tion.
Many of these Nincom-
poops owned stores where

presents. I have yet to find
one of these stores dosed
during the Christmas shop-
ping season. They want me
to spend my Christmas
bonus money there and
buy all my Christmas pre-
sents there but I am not per-
mitted to say "Merry
Christmas."
If these people really do
not like the Christmas sea-
son I suggest they spend
the Christmas season in
Timbuktu. I'll chip in on the
bus fare ... one-way.
I am a little disconcerted
about all of this complain-
ing and being offended, by
Christmas. It's my holiday,
let me enjoy it. After all, I
don't complain about nor
am I offended by their holi-
day ... April 1.
"And, lo, the angel of the
Lord cameupon them, and
the glory of the Lord shone
round about them: and
they were sore afraid. And
the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I
bring you good tidings of
great joy, which shall be to
all people. For unto you is
borr this day in the city of
David a Saviour, which is
Christ the Lord. And this
shall be a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was
with the angel a multitude
of the heavenly host prais-
ing God, and saying, Glory
to God in the highest, and
on earth peace, good will
toward men." (Luke 2:9-14
KJV): .

Apply now for Medicare
Part D "Extra Help"


By Louis Sullivan
Social Security District
Manager, Gainesville
.Have you, or someone
you know, reached age
65 this past year? If so,
you may be eligible for
Medicare and for the
Medicare Part D pre-
scription drug coverage.
There is also "extra
help" available for some
Medicare beneficiaries.
"Extra help" is intended
for people who have lim-
ited income. and re-
sources. If you qualify,
you will get help paying
for your Medicare pre-
scription drug plan's
monthly premium, as
well as deductibles and
co-pays. The amount of
"extra help" you would
get is based on your in-
come and resources, but
could be worth as much
as $3,600 per year.
To qualify for the "ex-
tra help," you must have
income limited to $15,315
for an irndividual,- or
$20,535 for a married
couple living together;
and resources limited to
$11,710 ($12,440 in 2008)
for an individual or


$23,410 ($23,970 in 2008)
for a married 'couple liv-
ing together. Resources
include such things as
bank accounts, stocks
and bonds, but would
not include your house
or car. In some situations,
these limits may be high-
er.
Eligible Medicare bene-
ficiaries can sign up for
the Part D prescription
drug plan until Dec. 31.
In most cases, if you
don't' apply by Dec. 31,
and you don't currently
have a drug plan that, on
average, covers at least as
much as standard
Medicare prescription
drug coverage, you will
have to wait until Nov.
15, 2008, to apply. At that
time, your premium cost
will go up at least one
percent per month for
every month that you
.have waited.
You can apply for the
extra help anytime, not
"'just during open season,
by visiting www.so-
cialsecurity.gov or call-
ing Social Security at 1-
800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-
325-0778).

White Springs







-. By Johnny Bullard


The bright red of the hol-
ly berry and the scent of
pine mixed with the light,
sweet aroma of citrus al-
ways puts me in mind of
the Yuletide Season. When
I was growing up in White
Springs, Christmas did not
have the commercial trap-
pings that seems, at the pre-
sent time, to usher in the
holiday somewhat prema-
turely. Christmas items ap-
pear on the store shelves
before summer is over.
Through the years, peo-
ple have remarked to me
that during our childhood,
Jerry Lawrence and I must
have waded through toys
at Christmas. It isn't true.
We weren't deprived chil-
dren, and we had a won-
derful childhood, but we
had "a" bicycle a good
one, but "a" bicycle. We
had "a" wagon, a good
wagon, but "a" wagon. We
had a lot of good books and
most of the latest records,
including all the Beatfles al-
bums (I didn't burn mine),
and most of the classics out
of Motown and, of course,
the King of Rock and Roll -
Elvis Presley still my all
time favorite.
Daddy and Mama did
not believe in Christmas be-
ing a time when we fo-
cused only on what we
were going to receive. Our
Christmases revolved
around the church, the
school, family, and friends.
When my Grandma
Bullard, the late Mary Joyn-
er Bullard, was living, and
she was born in 1893, we
never put up the Christmas;
tree at her house until'Dad-
dy's sister, Aunt Chat, and
my first cousin, Leann,
came home from where
they were living in Minden,
La.
One trip I remember
making each year with my
Daddy was to the Croft
place or over to the Buck
Sistrunk place, to cut a limb
from a sour orange tree or,
what we called, a "mock or-
ange" tree. This was
sprayed gold or silver. We
took our, what we consid-


ered beautiful metallic tree,
placed it in a coffee can,
covered the base with sand
or dirt covered it with alu-
minum foil and put gum-
drops, sometimes called
"sugarplums," on the
thorns.
This became the sug-
arplum or gumdrop tree,
and we had one each year. I
remember one family in
White Springs had an up-
town gumdrop tree that
was made out of heavy Lu-
cite. I was never envious of
this Christmas treasure, be-
cause of the fun Leann, Jer-
ry Lawrence, and I had go-
ing with Daddy to get this
treasure each year. Before
he passed away, the late
Mr. Pearsall Fouraker read
about this in my column
and sent me a mock orange
limb and when Dana
brought it to school, seeing
it brought tears to my eyes,
as it brought back a flood of
memories.
Speaking of different
Christmas decorations, I re-
member when Miss Vir-
ginia Bell bought a big sil-
ver Christmas tree alu-
minum, I am sure, the year
I was in first grade. She
placed all the same color or-
naments on it, either red or
blue, and she had one of
those color wheels that re-
flected on the tree to make
it change colors. I loved
Miss Bell, and she was one
of the best teachers I ever
had. I didn't particularly
care for her silver tree al-
though in those days, you
wouldn't have dared to
volunteer that kind of opin-
ion to a teacher.
Mainly, though, I re-
. member Christmas being
about family. It's filled with
lots of laugher, good food,
and singing around the old
upright piano with my
Grandma's sister, Aunt
Irene, pounding out
hymns, Christmas carols,
and other favorites. As we,
celebrate. the birthday of
our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ, let us all concentrate
more on the love aspect
than on the commercial


and material aspect of the
holiday.
One doesn't have to go
very far to find someone
who is lonely, less fortu-
nate, or just in need of some
attention. You may be
Christmas for someone. As
my good friend, Virgie
Cone often wrote in her col-
umn, "think about it," and
as Jasper's own famous au-
thor, the late Lillian Smith
wrote in her A Memory of a
Large Christmas that was
set in what was known to
most of Jasper as the Jim
Corbett house that set on
the lot where Mrs. Ray-
mond (Jim Cassin Corbett)
Camp's house is now situ-
ated, "Every Christmas can
be a large Christmas," if
you decide to make it one.
The children of First Bap-
tist Church, White Springs,
presented a wonderful
Christmas musical on Sun-
day, Dec. 16, in the church
sanctuary. A packed house
enjoyed the performances
of the children who were
under the direction of
Amanda Bullard and Kimrn
Steichen. The children did a
marvelous job. Following
the service, refreshments
were served in the fellow-
ship hall. What a festive
and wonderful evening.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to Mr. Skip Lawrence on
the loss of his wife Hilda.
Mr. Lawrence has the
prayers of the White
Springs community.
Tom and Mandy Moore
mean so much to our com-
munity. They purchased
the JW Shaw and Edith
Eastridge houses on Jewett
Street, and they have done
a marvelous job in restor-
ing both homes. Tom read
"Twas the Night Before
Christmas" at the Breakfast
for Santa Claus at the Festi-
val of Lights. He and
Mandy, formerly Miami
residents, seem to love it,;
"way down upon the
Suwannee River," and we
love them.
I saw Zeakie Marshall
again on Sunday over at
Wal-Mart, and we shared a
nice visit and talked about
Mae Frances' performance.
Zeakie's maternal grand-
mother, Mrs. Verna John-
son, who resides at the
"Huckabuck" on the River
Road, is one of my good
friends. I haven't seen her
in some time, but I want
her to know that I plan on
stopping by at some time
during the Christmas holi-


days.
If I could meet and visit
with any celebrity in the
world, it would be, hands
down, Dolly Parton. To me,
she is the epitome of the
American success story.
She is a talented
singer/songwriter, and I
just like her. My quote for
the week is one of her com-


Nt-I's kindergarten en-
joyed their annual visit to
the Deas Old House for
their farm tour. Many
thanks to Mr. Damon Deas,
his family and helpers for
making this such a fun, in-
teresting, educational ex-
perience. From Mr. Dan
Buchanan and Mr. Deas,
students learned about the
many items farmers pro-
vide for us. Many exam-
ples of fruits, vegetables
and other things were on
display, as well as a veg-
etable garden.
Mrs. Brenda Franklin,
with the help of horses, Di-
amond and Music, took the
students on a wagon ride.
Mr. Deas explained and
led the tour of the cane-
grinding 'operation. Mrs.
Mittie Deas, Mrs. Elizabeth
Deas, and Mrs. Dorothy
DeVane provided a deli-
cious cotmtry breakfast.
Mrs. McCall was delighted
to have Mrs. DeVane tell
her students about when
she was Mrs. McCall's
teacher!
Congratulations to our
teacher of the year, Mrs.
Erin Driggers. Mrs. Drig-
gers does an outstanding
job with the second grade
here at NHE. Congratula-
tions also to our school-re-
lated employee of the year,


Submitted
Generally, ,December,
January and February are
the deadliest months for
fires. In recent years, the
top three days for home
fires were. Christmas Day,
New Year's Day and
Christmas Eve. Cooking
and heating are the leading


positions, "Hard Candy
Christmas."
"Hey, maybe I'll dye my
hair (I do);
Maybe I'll move some-
wfere;
Maybe I'll get a car;
Maybe I'll drive so far
They'll all lose track.
Me, I'll bounce right back
(my favorite line)


Mr. Neal Walker, who
works so diligently to keep
our campus dean and run-
ning smoothly.
Our heartfelt sympathy
goes to long-time para-pro,
Mrs. Lucille Sevmore, on
the passing of her hus-
band, Mr. Archie. Sympa-
thy goes out also to her
children, Darren, Anissa,
and Libby, former students
at NHE.
Mrs. Faye Corbett was
honored with a retirement
party on Saturday, Dec. 8,
at the home of Mrs. Beth
Burnam. Staff members en-
loyed a delicious array of
finger foods, sandwiches
and desserts. The beauti-
fully decorated rooms pro-
vided the perfect atmos-
phere for visiting and rem-
iniscing. Mrs. Corbett re-
ceived several gifts, includ-
ing the traditional Cracker
Barrel rocking chair from
the staff. She will certainly
be missed by all!
NHE's Beta Club induc-
tion was held Nov. S. Eigh-
teen students were induct-
ed.
Beta members are busy
with a Christmas toy drive.
Thanks to all students and
staff who have participat-
ed. Two students who re-
ceived a gift certificate as a
prize used it to buy toys for


causes of home fires in the
months of December
through February.
If using a candle-lit
Menorah, keep it out of
reach of children and away
from anything flammable,
such as draperies. If using
an electric Menorah, keep
children away from lit
bulbs, .electrical sockets
and plugs.
Use holiday lights that
carry the protection label of
the Underwriters Labora-


Fine and dandy.
Lord, it's like a hard can-
dy Christmas.
I'm barely getting
through tomorrow,
But still I won't let
Sorrow get me down.
Have a good week, and a
Merry Christmas, Hamil-
ton County I love you.

the toy drive, rather than
spend it on themselves.
This certainly shows the
spirit of Christmas. Thanks
to Mrs. Faye Corbett, Mrs.
Lee Wetherington-Zamo-
ra, Mrs. Pam Hendrick and
Mrs. Judy Steedley for all
their help with Beta.
NTHE chairperson, Mrs.
Erin Driggers, is busy coor-
dinating our Relay for Life
activities. A penny drive
recently raised $325. We
have also had a bake sale
and "Tuesday jean days"
to bring our total to $500.
Mrs. Joeris' fourth
graders have been busy
building polygon shapes in
3D to take home as a prep
reminder for the FCAT.
Writing expositor stories
on the meaning of Christ-
mas has been an interest-
ing holiday activity. They
are also planning to write
stories about "Saving
Christmas" when Santa
gets the flu.
Staff members enjoyed
sharing Christmas goodies
on Friday, Dec. 14.
Make plans to attend our
Christmas musical on
Thursday, Dec. 20, in the
auditorium. Kindergarten,
first, and second grade stu-
dents will perform Around
the World at Christmas
Time, under the direction
of music teacher, Mrs.
Cameron. It should be a
lively Christmas presenta-
tion.
Remember, Friday, Dec.
21, is an early dismissal
day.
Best wishes for a happy
and safe holiday from
NHE where "we are
changing lives through
quality education."

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL
AMENDMENT
TO BE VOTED ON JANUARY 29, 2008
NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the
State of Florida, do hereby give notice that
an election will be held in each county in Flori-
da, on January 29, 2008, for the ratification
or rejection of a proposed revision to the con-
stitution of the State of Florida.

No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative) .

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITA-
TIONS ON PROPERTY TAX
ASSESSMENTS
Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State
Constitution relating to property taxation.
With respect to homestead property, this revi-
sion: (1) increases the homestead exemption
except for school district taxes and (2) allows
homestead property owners to transfer up
to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits
to their next homestead. With respect to
nonhomestead property, this revision (3) pro-
vides a $25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property and (4) limits assessment
increases for specified nonhomestead real
property except for school district taxes.
In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by ex-
empting the assessed value between $50,000
and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to
school district taxes. ,
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated
Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead prop-
erty owners will be able to transfer their Save-
Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead with-
in 1 year and not more than 2 years after re-
linquishing their previous homestead; except,
if this revision is approved by the electors in
January of 2008 and if the new homestead is
established on January 1, 2008, the previous
homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. If the new homestead has a higher just
value than the previous one, the accumulated
benefit can be transferred; if the new home-.
stead has a lower just value, the amount of
benefit transferred will be reduced. The trans-
ferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This
provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property
taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible
personal property. This provision applies to all
taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for spec-
ified nonhomestead real property to 10 per-
cent each year. Property will be assessed at
just value following an improvement, as de-
fined by general law, and may be assessed at
just value following a change of ownership or
control if provided by general law. This limita-
tion does not apply to school district taxes.'
This limitation is repealed effective January1d,


Further, this revision:


Jasper Legals
a. Repeals obsolete language on the home-
stead exemption when it was less than
S25,000 and did not apply uniformly to proper-
ty taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be
repealed if a future constitutional amendment
provides for assessment of homesteads "at
less than just value" rather than as currently
provided "at a specified percentage" of just
value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon
approval by the electors and operate retroac-
tively to January 1, 2008, if approved in a spe-
cial election held on January 29, 2008, or to
take effect January 1, 2009, if approved in the
general election held in November of 2008.
The limitationon on annual assessment increas-
es for specified real property shall first apply to
the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in
a special election held on January 29, 2008, or
shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revi-
sion is approved in the general election held in
November of 2008.

What to know about cataract


(6As 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:


a.


0y


Contrary to popular belief, children, and young people in general, are not immune to cataracts.
blurry vision
excess glare, making certain forms of light, such as
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, a
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 hive 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.

Institute Web site at www.nei.nih.gov.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Stddet4d Ste
'Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse.
My wife was asleep next to me in the bed,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in her head.

I lay there remembering one week ago,
The party we had on the day that it snowed.
I was already dressed and relaxing downstairs,
While my wife was deciding which outfit to wear.

When up in our room there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the bedroom I flew like a flash,
My wife holding jewelry and everything clashed.

The light of the lamp caused her red dress to glow,
Her new party shoes were all ready to go.
She looked like a star in her long evening gown,
But without matching jewelry she felt like a clown.

And that's when it hit me I knew what to get her,
A set of new jewelry to make her feel better.
On a budget like mine could I find a selection?
That's when I thought of the classified section.

There were Rubies and Emeralds, Diamonds and Pearls,
Amethysts, Sapphires, Opals and Beryls.
From less than a carat that wouldn't cost much,
To the very expensive I wouldn't dare touch.'


GUYS

f IFI

Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


With all of this jewelry listed for sale,
It soon became clear that I just might prevail.
There wasn't much time with the guests on the way,
Just one simple ad would save the whole day.

And then, in a twinkling, I saw one just right,
I called up the seller explaining my plight.
"There's no way I'll make it, the guests are soon due.
Unless," I suggested, "you'd like to come too."

Our friends then arrived with holiday cheer,
Bringing presents, champagne and even some beer.
But a jolly old man, he stood out from the rest,
His attire was different from all of the guests.

PAGE 2D, DECEMBER 19,- 20, 2007 NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS


He was dressed all in red and was holding a box,
He leaned in and whispered, "I brought you the rocks."
His beard was so white, his smile so merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

The life of the party, he really fit in,
Telling jokes to the guests and sharing a grin.
He grabbed a big plate and then added some food,
The more that he ate the more jolly his mood.

A few sips of nog, then he gave me the sign,
To peer in the box, it all sparkled and shined.
But before I could look and decide what to choose,
He said, "Take it all! It'll match your wife's shoes!"

He took off from the party.as quick as he came,
Without taking payment or leaving his name.
It was quite the event I will never forget,
To receive such a gift from a man I Just met.

As I drifted to sleep, I remembered that eve,
And how one simple man could make you believe.
I can still hear his words as he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all,
and to all a Good-Night."

Morgan believes that the three most important ingredients for a succes-
sful party are family, friends and great food and she has determined
the right proportions of each to create a winning recipe for less holiday-
entertaining stress. By following her time-saving:methods, hosts will be
able to spend more time with loved ones and less time in the kitchen,
Throw a Party You'll Enjoy: The holiday season is a time to
celebrate, but there are many ways to entertain. Throw a party that fits
your lifestyle, budget, energy level and time frame. Start by asking a
i few questions: Do you like t.., enI,11. i .n lI.'nll, 1 : ii nif ni l,,l, with
lots of guests or just a few? Do you have the :.itclen is pace and living
space to seat your guests or would a buffet be more manageable?
Fill Your Pantry First: A smart host keeps a well-stocked holiday
pantry that makes it easy to assemble party nibble k. .r unexpected
guests. Good items to have on hand include plump and mild Califor-
nia black ripe olives, a perennial party favorite..They're delicious for
snacking or stirred into holiday dips, popped into appetizers or added
to salads. While you're at it, put your favorite dry ranch dressing mix
to work, too. Kids of all ages will be kept happy while they wait for
the holiday meal to be served if you provide a nutritious snack of
vegetables with, ranch dip.

Get a Jump Start on Decorating: Whether you're serving
buffet-style or hosting a sit-down dinner, set your table earlier in the
week. For a buffet, arrange the bowls and platters and label them with
the appropriate recipe names so you know what will go where. And
feel free to mix and match there's nothing wrong with placing an
heirloom silver platter of cookies next to a white' china. cake plate
purchased on sale.

Potato and Green Onion
Latkes With
Ranch Sour Cream
Recipe created by cookbook author Diane Morgan
Makes 8 to 10 servings
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
3 pounds Idaho or russet potatoes,
peeled and rinsed under cold water
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
(including green tops)
1 1-ounce packet Hidden Valley
Original Ranch Salad Dressing
& Seasoning Mix, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups sour cream
Peanut or grape seed oil, for frying
Fill large bowl with cold water and have a colander
ready. Using box grater or food processor fitted with
coarse grating disk, coarsely grate potatoes. Place in
'cold water 1 minute then drain potatoes in colander.
Rinse potatoes under cold water once or twice until
water runs clear. This removes starch and keeps pota-
toes from turning a reddish color. Use your hands or
back of broad spoon to squeeze out as much liquid as
possible, and then rollgrated potatoes in clean dish
towel or several layers of paper towels to completely
blot them dry. Dry bowl and transfer.potatoes to bowl.
Mix green onions with potatoes. In small bowl,
combine 1 1/2 tablespoons seasoning mix with flour,
baking powder and pepper. Mix flour mixture into
potatoes. (Use immediately or cover and set aside at
room temperature up to 1 hour.) Just before.frying
add beaten egg and mix to combine.
Combine remaining seasoning mix with sour cream
and stir until smooth and completely combined. Set
aside up to 1 hour or refrigerate until ready to serve
as a topping for latkes.
Preheat oven to 2500F. Have large wire rack set
ready in rimmed baking sheet. Pour enough oil into
1 or 2 large, heavy frying pans, preferably cast iron,
to cover bottom of pan by 1/4 Inch. Heat oil over
medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Scoop
about 1/4 cup potato mixture and gently place in pan.
Use spatula to lightly flatten and form pancake. Form-
as many pancakes in pan as will comfortably fit with-
.out crowding. Fry on one side until golden brown,
3 to 4 minutes. Turn and brown other side, about 3
minutes longer. Adjust heat and add more oil as needed
to fry additional batches. Transfer latkes to wire rack
and keep warm in oven while frying additional batches.
Serve immediately or continue to keep warm until
ready to serve. Serve with Ranch Sour Cream.

Host a Professional-


Looking Party,








a Big Budget
a Big Budget


Everyone loves a party
and putting personal touches
on their events, but not
everyone has a big budget or
knows how to get started.
Hosting a great party does
involve some work, but the
chance to try out new ideas
and be innovative often
makes it well worth it. Still,
throwing a party can be
easier than you think; you
can even create one that
looks like a professional
party planner had a hand in
the details.
"By placing attention on
the little details and relying
on products that can make
your work easier, your party
can seem like you hired a
professional when you really
did all of the work
yourself," says Phyllis
Cambria, a special events
producer. Here are some tips
to get you started.
1. Look like you hired a
caterer: Concentrate on
embellishing food and d6cor
without much effort. For
example, you can purchase
pre-packaged hors d'oeuvres
and other foods and dress
them up with fresh herbs to
make them look homemade.
"Plating" can also make the
party seem more lavish.
Plating is where professional
chefs present food in
interesting ways, which can
make even ordinary foods
seem more extraordinary.
Plate a piece of chicken atop
a mound of mashed potatoes
piped onto a plate. Or, serve
cake on a plate drizzled with
chocolate syrup. Other
details include using real
linens instead of paper
tablecloths, mood lighting,
such as candles or twinkle
lights, and d6cor that
borrows from the theme of
your party or the season.
2. Professional looking
invitations made at home:
Invitations set the mood of
the event, particularly
because they are the first
element of the party that
your guests will see. Today
there are more options than
ever in invitations, and
depending upon your budget
or preference, you can have
invitations printed by a
company or do it yourself
with similar results.

Checkerboard Ltd., a
manufacturer of stationery
products, has a line of
invitations that feature a free
Web service called
EasylnviteTM that
eliminates the cost of
professionally printed
invitations, but delivers
similar quality at home. At
www.elnvite.com, you can
simply buy a box of
invitations that feature
EasyInvite for any occasion
(wedding, birthday,
Halloween party, holiday
party, kids birthday party,
etc.). The invitations come
in a number of styles, and
some even have intricate
cut-outs for a fun look. Each
invitation box has a code.
Enter that code on the Web
site www.EasyInvite.com,
enter your owfi text, and
print it out on your
computer. The program
automatically aligns your
text according to the
invitation. If the invitation is
a shape that does not feed
into a printer easily (such as
a crayon design, or slice of
pizza design) then the
invitation comes as a
standard-size sheet of paper
and the shape is perforated.
You easily punch it out after
it feeds through the printer.
3. Think fresh: Go fresh
whenever possible in your
d6cor. Fresh flowers, plants
and fruits can bring your
party to another level. If
your budget doesn't allow a
room full of roses, pick and
choose among a variety of
flowers and use "fill" like
leaves, berries and other
greenery to enhance the
look. Fruit is often less
expensive than flowers, so
think about making a table
centerpiece of a bowl filled
with brightly colored fruit,
such as lemons or
cranberries, and accented
with fresh flowers.
4. Keep the occasion in
mind: Match the scope of
the party with the occasion.
For example, you can make
a children's party stand apart
from other kid-fests with
some simple touches.
Instead of the typical party
games, think about other
ways to keep children busy.
Visit the local craft store and


service innovations with
growers.

The children can have fun
making foam signs or wacky
pipe cleaner animals. Set the
theme of the event with
coordinating invitations,
decorations and even an
embellished cake many
grocery store bakeries can
now airbrush intricate
designs onto cakes or print
out a picture onto edible
paper to affix to the top of
the cake. Instead of fresh
flowers, make centerpieces
out of candy "bouquets" or
other edible treats.
Searching online will yield a
bunch of clever ideas.
5. Thank your guests:
Sending guests home with a
party favor can set your
event apart. Think about a
decorated bag filled with
gourmet chocolates or
another interesting touch
like wine glass tags with
guests' names printed on
them for your next party.
When printing out
EasyInvites, purchase extra
invitations and use them as
thank-you cards or notes for
your guests so that the
theme will continue through
to the end of the party.

looking party can be easy
and fun. To learn more about
