IRS announces 2008

Standard Mileage Rates


Submitted
The Internal Revenue
Service recently issued the
2008 optional standard
mileage rates used to calcu-
late the deductible costs of
operating an automobile
for business, charitable,
medical or moving purpos-
es.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2008,
the standard mileage rates
for the use of a car (includ-
ing vans, pickups or panel
trucks) will be: 50.5 cents
per mile for business miles
driven; 19 cents per mile
driven for medical or mov-
ing purposes; and 14 cents
per mile driven in service of
charitable organizations.
The new rate for business
miles compares to a rate of
48.5 cents per mile for 2007.
The new rate for medical
and moving purposes corn-


pares to 20 cents in 2007.
The rate for miles driven in
service of charitable orgAii-
zations has remained -the
same. '
The standard miage
rate for business mlical
and moving purposes, is
based on an annual study
of the fixed and variable
costs of operating an auto-
mobile. The mileage rate for
charitable miles is set by
law.
A taxpayer may not use
the business standard
mileage rate for a vehicle af-
ter using any depreciation
method under the Modi-
fied Accelerated Cost Re-
covery System (MACRS),
after claiming a Section 179
deduction for that vehicle,
for any vehicle used for hire
or for more than four vehi-
des used simultaneously.


Does your information match up?


ByPaulD. Barnes
Social Security
Regional Commissioner,
Atlanta, Ga.
Tax time is right around
the corner. Soon you will
be receiving your W-2s
from your employer(s) and
tax information from the
IRS.
Carefully check your
name, Social Security num-
ber and all of the data on
your W-2s and on your So-
cial Security card. A mis-
match could delay your tax
refund and cause problems
with your Social Security
benefits in the future. Such
errors are easy to fix.
If you've legally changed
your name due to mar-
riage, divorce, court order,
or for any other reason,
make sure you change
your name with Social Se-
curity by applying for a
new Social Security card.
Make sure you change
your name with your em-
ployer as well. If you don't,
it could cause your earn-
ings to be improperly
recorded.
If you are the parent of a
newborn, you want to
make sure that the newest
family member has a Social
Security number too. Most


people apply for their
baby's Social Security card
while they're, still in the
hospital at the same time
they apply for the'birth cer-
tificate. But if you didn't,
you'll need to apply for
your child's Social Security
number in order to claim
the child as a dependent on
your tax return. You'll also
need it if you ever need to
apply for government ben-
efits on behalf of the child
or your family. *
To apply for a Social Se-
curity card, all you need to
do is complete a one-page
application and provide
proof of identity, age, and
citizenship. In the case of a
child's first card, you 'also
need to prove that you are
the parent. For a name
change, y6u will need to
provide documentation
with your old and new
names.
For more information
about getting a Social Secu-
rity card and number for
your child, or to change
your name and get a re,
placement card for your-'
self with your updated in-
formation, visit Social Se-
curity's website at

MINORITY





2008 Creators Syndicate
BY WALTER WILLIAMS


Black colleges


The Lincoln Review, a
Washington-based black
think tank, published an
article titled "What Does
the Future Hold for Histor-
ically Black Colleges?" in
its September / October
2007 edition. It recalled the
experiences of Bill
Maxwell, a St. Petersburg
Times columnist and edito-
rial board member, when
in 2004 he took a huge pay
cut to teach journalism at
Stillman College in
Tuscaloosa, Ala.
He wanted to fulfill a
promise he made to profes-
sors who taught him dur-
ing the 1960s at Wiley Col-
lege in Marshall, Tex., and
Bethune-Cookman College
in Daytona Beach, two his-
torically black colleges. He
was in for surprise and dis-
appointment.
Professor Maxwell re-
calls his experiences in the
St. Petersburg Times. The
first column, "I had a
d r e a m "
(www.sptimes.com /2007 /
05/13/Opinion/I_had_ a
dream.shtml) discusses the
non-academic environ-
ment at Stillman College.


His first day in his English
class, Maxwell had to
shout to get the class to
come to order. He assigned
a 500-word essay. When he
read the essays, he said,
"During my 18 years of
previous college teaching, I
had never seen such poor
writing sentence frag-
ments, run-on sentences,
misspellings, wrong words
and illogical word order."
One paper read: "In my
high school, prejudism
were bad and people feel
like nothing." In another:
"Central High kids put
there nose in other people
concern."
Maxwell says that only a
few students bothered to
take lecture notes. He had
to teach basic grammar
lessons and teach students
how to use a dictionary,
lessons that should have
been learned in elementary
or junior high school. The
college issued free laptops
to students who main-
tained a passing grade-
point average. Some used
their computers in class for
text messaging. When
Maxwell confronted the


students, he was met with
hostility. A few students
left during class to make
calls or send text mes-
sages. Two female profes-
sors were threatened by
two male students when
they were told to put
away their laptops in
class.
Professor Maxwell's
second column, "A dream
.lay dying" relates more of
his experiences at Stillman
(www.sptimes.com/2007 /
05 / 20 / Opinion / A_dream
_lay_dying.shtml). He re-
calls, ". . nothing was
more appalling than the
students' disregard for col-
lege property." He recalls
the time when the
Tuscaloosa Fire Depart-
ment had to put out trash
can fires in King Hall, say-
ing, "I was angry and em-
barrassed to see a team of
white firefighters trying to
save a dormitory named
for the Rev. Martin Luther
King Jr. that black students
had trashed." A white fire-
fighter asked him, "Why
do they do this to their own
buildings?" Touring the
building, Maxwell said
that even without the fire it
looked like a war zone.
"Holes had been kicked
and punched in the walls.
Windows were broken,
floors were scarred and
most of the furniture was
damaged. The two dorms
routinely underwent major
repairs after each semes-
ter."
A week before leaving
Stillman for good, Maxwell
saw a group of male stu-
dents who habitually hung


out in front of King Hall.
He approached the group
and asked, "Why don't
you all hang out some-
where else?" "Who you
talking to, old nigger?" one
replied. Maxwell said,
"You give the school a bad
image out here." They
laughed and dismissed
him with stylized waves of
the arm.
At a time of gross dis-
crimination, black colleges
were crucial. Their gradu-
ates played a vital role in
the unprecedented socioe-
conomic progress made by
black Americans. Today,
there's a question about the
value of most, but not all,
black colleges. According
to the Journal of Blacks in
Higher Education, the 2005
graduation rates at black
colleges ranged from a
high of 77 percent at Spel-
man College to a low of 7
percent at the University of
the District of Columbia.
Only seven black colleges,
out of 53 listed, had a grad-
uation rate of higher than
50 percent. Given these
numbers, the preparation
and performance of stu-
dents at most black col-
leges, one has ask whether
these colleges have out-
lived their usefulness.

professor of economics at
George Mason University.

After more than five
years of planning, two
years of classes and clini-
cals, and provisional ac-
creditation by the Florida
Board of Nursing, the first
class of registered nursing
students at North Florida
Community College has
graduated. The 20 stu-
dents participated in a
pinning ceremony on
Dec. 17 at the First Baptist
Church in Madison and
are now eligible to apply
to take the National
Council Licensure Exami-
nation for Registered
Nurses.
"Graduating our first


Registered Nursing class
is a true milestone for
North Florida Communi-
ty College," said Presi-
dent Morris Steen. "The
impact these nurses will
have on our rural commu-
nities over the course of
their careers is incalcula-
ble. It is a very significant
development for health
care in North Florida."
The pinning ceremony,.
a symbolic welcoming of
newly graduated nursing
students into the nursing
profession, was the high-
light of the evening. Nurs-
ing instructor Michele
Richardson, RN, MSN,


presented each graduat-
ing student with an
enamel pin with the
words NFCC Registered
Nursing encircling an oil
lamp..
The nursing pin is a
1,000-year old symbol of
service to others dating
back to the Maltese Cross,
adopted by crusaders and
worn on their habits as a
symbol of service to'
Christianity. The lamp
symbolizes .the originator
of modem nursing, Flo-
rence Nightingale, who is
also known as "The Lady
with the Lamp."
The tradition of the
nursing pin and the cere-
monial pinning known
'today, actually originated
in the 1860's at the
Nightingale School of


Nursing at St. Thomas
Hospital in London. Flo-
rence Nightingale hon-
ored her most outstand-
ing graduates by present-
ing each of them with a
medal for excellence.
After lighting the sym-
bolic lamp of knowledge,
the nursing students re-
cited the Nightingale
Pledge first used in 1893
as an oath for the nursing
profession in the US.
The RN class of 2007 ex-
tends its gratitude to fam-
ily, friends and NFCC fac-
ulty writing in the pro-
gram, "Without your sup-
port, we never could have
made it."

After the girls were di-
vided into groups, they
met their first challenge
designed to test their sta-
mina and knowledge of
United States geography.
Each group had to cross
a set of hurdles and put
together a table-size puz-
zle of the US. Then each
contestant had to find
her state flag and race to
the finish line.


The day ended with
controversial discussion
over dinner, as each
group discussed sex be-
fore marriage, same-sex
marriage and gun con-
trol.
The next morning the
advisory board selected
the three contestants
who they thought had
the best chance of win-
ning if the pageant was
held that day Miss
South Carolina Jamie
Leigh Langley, Miss
Pennsylvania Rachel
Marie Brooks and Miss
Utah Jill Steven. The con-


testants who they
thought were most resis-
tant to the changes were
Miss Vermont Rachel
Ann Cole, Miss Idaho
Sadie Quigley and Miss
Oklahoma Makenna Lee
Smith.
In tomorrow's episode,
the girls gather at the
pool for a game of "Are
You Smarter Than a Miss
USA Girl?" The chal-
lenge ends with each
eliminated contestant
jumping into the pool
where their hair and
makeup are wiped clean.
Then celebrity hair styl-


ist Kim Vo and makeup
guru Napoleon Perdis
give each girl a one-on-
one "prescription" for
fixing their outdated
looks. Then the contes-
tants meet the advisory
board to find out if their
makeovers will pay off
or if they didn't go far
enough, as they are
ranked in the top or bot-
tom.
The Miss America
pageant will air live from

Install parental con-

parents to control who
communicates with the
children using the com-

from visiting inappropri-
ate sites, and allows for
the creation of time limits
on computer usage.

peratures a lot of people
are heading outdoors.
From burning their yard
trash to staying warm
by the camp fire, many
are making use of out-
door fires. The Florida
Division of FOrestry
would like to remind
people to exercise cau-
tion when enjoying
these activities. Here are
some helpful tips to


burning outdoors.
Before you begin
burning yard debris
check with your local
Division of Forestry of-
fice to make sure it is le-
gal to burn in your area.
Position your pile in an
area that meets the re-
quired set backs. Be
sure to only burn yard
waste, no household
garbage (includes paper


pers). Whether you are
burning yard debris or
enjoying a campfire, do
not burn on windy days.
Also, keep a water hose
or shovel handy in case
the fire escapes. Be sure
the smoke is not ob-
structing visibility on
nearby roads. Never
leave the fire unattend-
ed and be sure that it is
completely extinguished


Most of mthe areas veg-
etation is really dry
making it very flamma-
ble. By taking some
steps of precaution the
risk of the fire escaping
is considerably reduced.
For more information
on these tips or to learn
more contact your local
Division of Forestry of-
fices or visit www.fl-

Trojans finish season 9-4


The Hamilton County
High School Trojans varsity
basketball team traveled to
Ocala to participate in the
prestigious 34th annual,
Kingdom of the Sun Christ-
mas Tournament. Three
schools who participated in
the same event the prior
year went on to win state
~ championships. Teams, not
only from the state of Flori-
da, but Georgia, Louisiana,
and Washington DC took
part in this year's event.
HCHS was scheduled to
play in the very first game
of the tourney on the mom-
ing after, Christmas day
against 5-A powerhouse
and undefeated Lakewood
High School out of St. Pe-
tersburg. The Trojans bat-
tled tough for the entire
first half, trailing Lake-
wood by only 7 points at in-
termission. Lakewood
outscored Hamilton by 5 in
the third quarter, taking a
12-point lead into the
fourth. After keeping the
deficit around 12-13 points
for the first half of the last
quarter, Lakewood pulled
away for an 88-68 victory
over the Trojans.
Coach Patrick Murphy
was very pleased with the
game from the Trojans' per-
spective, especially given
the competition and the
size disadvantage the Tro-
jans faced. At least six Lake-
wood players were taller
than Hamilton's tallest guy,
including 6'9" Michael
Morrison of Lakewood,
who has already commit-
ted to play college basket-
ball at George Mason Uni-
versity (whom you might
remember played the Uni-
versity of Floridain the Fi-
nal Four two years ago).
Lakewood would go on
to lose in the semifinal
game of the tournament to
Berkeley Prep. However,
they did win the third place
game over host Ocala Van-
guard High by 21 points.


Lakewood eided the tour-
ney with a 3-1 record in the
tournament.
Hamilton played their
next game in the tourney
the following morning
against Coolidge High
School from Washington,
DC. The Colts had a lot of
athleticism and it was an


Coach Murphy was
pleased with the overall
play of his team and was
happy to have had the
chance to play such tough
competition.

will only make us better. It
just depends on how we re-

up tempo game from the
beginning. The Colts came
out on fire and took a 16
point lead at halftime. The
lead grew to as many as 22
points when Hamilton
made a run to cut the
Coolidge lead to 12. Unfor-
tunately, it wasn't enough
as Coolidge defeated the
Trojans, 81-68.
Coolidge wound up win-
ning the seventh place
game over Rome High out
of Rome Georgia by 13.
Coolidge would also go 3-1
in this tourney. McEachern
High School (Ga.) won the
tourney championship on a
three-point shot by Ohio
State University commit-
ment Trae Golden. They
defeated fellow class 3A
Berkeley Prep, 65-62, for
the title.
After the tournament,


The Trojans played their
next game in Live Oak
against rival Suwannee
County High School.
Hamilton came into the
game having lost their last
4 out of 5 but they knew the
Suwannee game was a big
game.
After going back and
forth to start the game, the
score was 7-6 Bulldogs with
about 5 minutes left in the
first quarter. An 11-0 run by
the Trojans led by senior
Malcolm Pollock and junior
Josh Jones. made-the score
17-7, Trojans. After a
Suwannee free throw, the
Trojans went to their bench.
and went on another 11-0
run to make the score 28-8,
Hamilton. Senior Anthony
Stevens scored 9 of those 11
points and, after Suwan-
nee's Alex Fountain hit a


Cooks scored on the next
possession to give HCHS a
32-12 lead. Suwannee
scored to cut the lead to 18
points and then Jones had a
hand in the final 3 baskets
for the Trojans in the first
half with assists to Pollock,
senior Howard Webb, and
senior' Jermaine Walker,
who ended the half with a
three-pointer from the top
of the key. The halftime
score was Hamilton 39,
Suwannee 17.
The third quarter was
highlighted by good shoot-..
ing from Suwannee High
and two dunks by Hamil-
ton one by Pollock and
one by Jones. The Bulldogs
outscored Hamilton by 8
points in the quarter and
the Trojans led 53-39 enter-
ing the final quarter of play.
To begin the fourth quar-


minutes left to play in the
game.
After Jones and Webb
made 3 out of 4 free throws
among themselves, Suwan-
nee also made a couple of
free throws and the score
was Hamilton 61, Suwan-
nee 47, with 5:33 left. Cooks
made a nice long pass to
Webb for a lunging layup
and Suwannee came right
back with 2 more free
throws to make it 63-49,
with 4:48 remaining in the
game.
- However, Hamilton
went dn a 7-0 run over the
next 2 minutes to put the
game. Pollock made a nice
drive and dish to Jones for a
layup. Cooks got a steal
and passed it to Pollock for
a score and Walker also
made a nice pass to Cooks
for a layup. Mathis ended


b


the run with a free throw.

Set goals for 2008


by Peggy Boston
Are you one of the few
who stuck to your New
Year's resolutions last
year? Congratulations!
As for the rest of us, we
should see 2008 as a
challenge to accomplish
as many goals as we set
for ourselves.
Start small, accom-
plish small. Aim big, ac-
complish big either
way you are getting it
done and doing some-
thing for yourself. As a
personal trainer, I al-
ways recommend my
clients set at least five
goals to accomplish,
with a "plan B" if some-
thing goes awry and a
rewarding treat once the
goal is met. Set a short, a
mid-term and a long-
term goal.
For example a short-
term goal may be to
drink more water every
day. If you set out to
drink more water, just


focus on that, once you
have accomplished that
goal, move on to some-
thing else such as more
daily exercise.
Focusing on too many
goals at once will be
overwhelming and the
feeling that you cannot
accomplish all your
goals will landslide into
"falling off the wagon" -
again! Don't give up.
Remember, the only
way you will never suc-
ceed is if you quit.
Plan B: What will you
do if it rains and you
can't walk outside?
What will you do if your
partner flakes out on
you? Always prepare
for a rainy day, so to
speak. Have .a mental
checklist of things you
can do instead of what
your plan is. Be flex ble.
As for the rew rds,
you should always
choose something in ul-
gent that will make you


not only look forward to
getting the job at hand
done, but something
you normally wouldn't
do for yourself. Some-
thing you can continue
to enjoy and not feel
guilty about later. A
massage, a pedicure, a
vacation, a special outfit
or a date with your
sweetheart.
Set yourself a time
limit, but not with a
pressurized attitude
that may lead to failure.
Why are you setting
these specific goals?
What will they accom-
plish, not only on the
outside, but on' the in-I
side?
Focus on yourself, just
a little, you deserve it.
You are unique, the only
one of you God made -
b'e special, enjoy life and
those around you. Have
a great 2008!
Signing off for now PB
& J (without the J).


Using scented baits for cold water bass


By Skeet Reese
After seeing what I
have while fishing thou-
sands of days in hundreds
of tournaments across the
country, I know that
scented baits catch more
fish. It's no secret, really,
and nowadays pretty
much every angler uses
scented baits to his or her
advantage.
This time of year, with
the water rapidly cooling
in most parts of the coun-
try, slowly fishing scented
baits are the answer for
coaxing lethargic bass
into eating. But. with
the glut of new
scented products
on the market
all vying
for your
do l- '

lars, an-
glers need!
to become fa-
miliar with the subtleties
and limitations of these
baits if they hope to catch
more fish.
Nearly everyone that
uses scented baits has
their own ideas and tech-
niques on how best to use
them. But before you cast
one into your favorite
lake or pond, there's one
word to keep in mind:
slow.
To maximize the effec-
tiveness of scented baits
you have to fish the bait
very slow. Whether you
catch fish for a living or
just for fun, you have to
have a minimum amount
of patience and this is
where it will pay off. Be-
cause the baits have built-


in attractants, many an-
glers get excited and want
to get the bait in the water
in as many different
places as possible hoping
that the increased number
of presentations will in-
crease the likelihood of a
strike. But it's not the
quantity of presentations
that is important -
it's the quali-
ty.
Be-


cause
scented
aits re-
lease so much
scent in an area, I use
Berkley Gulp! or the new
Gulp! Alive!. It disperses
more scent than any other
soft bait and that makes it
important that you fish
the bait slowly. This helps
to build up a scent cloud
in the area. That way you
don't necessarily have to
get the bait in front of the
fish to attract its attention.
By filling the area with
scent, fish that wouldn't
normally pay attention to
the bait (remember most
bass spend 75-80 percent
of their time in an inactive
or non-feeding mode) will
be drawn in. That's why I
like to rig my drop-shot
rigs with scented baits. By
dangling a Gulp! Sinking
Minnow in the same place
for long enough time, I
can fill the area with scent
and attract bass that I
might not be able to at-
tract otherwise. By releas-
ing so much scent into the


area, Gulp! dramatically
increases the size of the
strike zone meaning you
don't have to worry about
putting the bait in front of
a fish for it to be effective.
During this time of
year, once the bass have
left shallow coves and
boat, docks and
other ambush
areas for deeper
!- P water, you .can
fish the Gulp! on a
drop. shot or a jig and
allow the bait to work for
you. Once you've located
fish with your electronics
or areas like depth
changes or brush piles
that are likely to hold
bass, the bait will work to
draw fish in that are seek-
ing to feed. No more wor-
rying about making a bait
move and whether or not
you are taking it away
from the bass.
I've witnessed the evo-
lution of scent technology
going back to when we
used fish oils and other
homemade scents to ap-
ply to our baits. I always
wanted a scent that
stayed on the bait and
tasted good enough that
the fish would hang on
longer. But I also wanted
a scent that dispersed so
that I could fish a bait
slowly and trust -that I
could attract fish that did-
n't necessarily see the
bait. It's the best bet for
catching bass in late fall
and winter.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Happy New Year! Al-
though it seems January is
going by so fast, I still
want to start the New
Year off by bringing you
this wish; it is a sincere
wish for the best for all of
you. Please call me or
email me. I am going to
try to keep up with all of
you. We do not have any
other way of getting news.
We want and need to get
all we can to you from the
Jasper News. We certainly
do have trouble getting
news through other pa-
pers.
A few days ago I hap-
pened to meet a friend as I
was going into the grocery
store (Foodway), and
learned that they had been
to a visitation at the funer-
al home. I did not even
know that Mr. Edenfield
had died. We do not get
news in a timely manner,
since we cannot get info
from Times Union and
Valdosta.


Our
sympathy goes out to the
family of Mr. Edenfield,
who served our county as
commissioner for many
years, serving faithfully
and in spite of difficulties,
put in much time and ef-
fort in good service for
our county.
We attended a memori-
al service on Friday morn-
ing for Thomas Lewis. Mr.
Lewis was a native of
Hamilton County, having
retired and moved back to
Jasper. He had been a res-
ident of Suwannee Valley
Nursing Center for sever-
al years after the death of
his wife. He was a cheer-
ful resident, always in
front to give a smile to res-
idents,, visitors, as well as
the staff. Both of these
men will be missed, al-
ways having a good word
and smile for everyone.
As I did not write last
week, I have not brought
my thoughts about the


sadness in the passing of
our dear friend, Rev. S.
Wendell Hill. What can
one say that has not al-
Sready been said? He
Preached his own funeral
each day as he lived for
others. Our community
has been truly blessed by
his presence; he will be
missed. His ministry was
not exclusive to his con-
gregation; anyone who
did not have a minister of
their own, Rev. Hill was
always willing and eager
to give of himself. There
would be very few in this
community who have not
been ministered to in
some way by this servant.
We ask for God's richest
blessings on his family as
they get through the com-,
ing days. We shall all miss
him.

Church, Jasper, was privi-
leged to have James Mont-
gomery from Lake City in

lot more time praising
God for His goodness to
us than asking for bless-

Therein, lies the secret to a

Mr. Edenfield, a lifetime
resident of southern
Hamilton County served
a County Commissioner
for District 4 a number of
years. He was a devoted
father, a veteran, a patri-
otic American, and was
always a champion of pa-
triotism. Despite his
physical challenges, he
did a lot for his family
and for our area. He will
be missed by many in our
area, especially his sons,
Steve and Louie, and all
the members of this large
and extended family.
Stephen Foster Day will
be celebrated in the Tow-
er Auditorium on Sun-
day, Jan. 13,' at 2 p.m. at
the Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State

celebrates the music and
life of Stephen C. Foster. I
encourage folks in our
area to attend. This will,
in all likelihood, be the

tured; P&P.

last Stephen Foster Day
program that celebrates
"Old Folks at Home" as
the state song of Florida. I
hope all the verses of the
song are sung and that*
everyone stands while
they sing it.
Once again, I am going
to write that the "offen-
sive" lyrics of the song
have been changed and, it
seems to me, that the state
of Florida would recog-
nize that the lyrics have
changed as change must
occur in all societies and
cultures and, therefore,
celebrate the change in
the lyrics and not discard
probably the best-known
song in the world other
than "Happy Birthday" as
the state song of Florida
for something that is so
pitifully inferior.
And, folks, if you've lis-
tened to any of the final
songs that are in the run-
ning for the state song, it
would be like having a
Miss America Pageant
with only .three contes-
tants, and therefore, these
three were the "best". If
they were the "best," I
would hate to hear the
worst. I am not a musicol-
ogist, but the final three
sound like funeral dirges.
Maybe we should go
back to the original state
song, "Florida My Flori-
da." Here are a few of the
lyrics "The golden fruit
the world outshines,
Florida my Florida, Thy
gardens and thy phos-
phate mines, Florida, my:
Florida." Probably if we
revived this song, an envi-
ronmental group would
cry "foul," so "the beat
goes on."
Thank you to the over
2,000 of you who came


through to see the holiday
lights at the park. We
hope this year, our Christ-
mas light display will be
bigger and better.
The White Springs
Planning Committee is al-
ready busy at work mak-
ing plans for the annual
Wild Azalea Festival that
will be held on Saturday,
March 15. If you have a
young lady from a year
old up to 12 years of age
you would like to enter in
the Miss Azalea Contest,
please contact Town Hall
at 397-2310 or go by and
pick up applications
there.
Happy belated birthday
wishes to my mother,
Mary Lou Bullard, who
celebrated on Jan. 8. Belat-
ed birthday wishes also
go out to Mae Cannady,
White Springs, and to
"Aunt" Nancy Morgan
who is ninety years old
"plus." We wish all these
special ladies many,
many more happy birth-
days.
LT Ogburn continues to
do a great business at the
Sub Shack, located in the
historic Jay Smith house
across from Munchie's in
White Springs. We wish
LT and all his staff contin-
ued success in this busi-
ness. Mama and I enjoyed
lunching there several
times over Christmas hol-
idays. We wish LT and all
of our wonderful eateries
and restaurants in and
around White Springs, a
.very Happy New Year.
Jerry Lawrence and I
will travel over the week-
end to St. Petersburg
Beach, where we, along
with many other folk per-
formers, will participate
in a memorial service


honoring our friend and
renowned Florida
singer / songwriter, the
late Bobby Hicks. The
memorial will be held at
the Beach Theater on Sat-
urday, Jan. 12, beginning
at 2 p.m. I know we will
enjoy seeing a large con-
tingent of the folk com-
munity at this event.
I wish Bobby's "I'm
Florida" had been chosen
as the state song to re-
place "Old Folks at
Home" if, indeed, we
must have a replacement
and it seems we do. "I'm
Florida" was sung by
school children across the
state of Florida. It is an
outstanding Florida song
written by someone de-
scended from a family
with roots at least six gen-
erations deep in the soil of
Florida.
I wish all the students
and staff members of
Hamilton County and
surrounding school dis-
tricts, all the best for a
safe, happy, and success-
ful 2008. There are only 42
school days till FCAT and
only a little over 20 until
the FCAT Writing Assess-
ment takes place. So in the
words of the late Betty
Davis, "Fasten your seat
belts." The cat with more
than nine lives is lurking
just around the comer.
Our sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of
Mildred Westberry Nor-
ris. To Thurston, Larry,
and all the family, you
have my sincere, heartfelt
sympathy. We love you
and you are in .our
prayers.
Have a good week,
Hamilton County I love
you.

and Jasper City Manager
Kent Cichon helped with
the line-up in the arena.
Thank you so much for
your hard work.
The Sprit of the Suwan-
nee started the evening
with a pre-parade perfor-
, n mance. I think everyone
enjoyed the puppets and


bubbles.
In the front line were
our Grand Marshalls,
Judge John Peach and his
wife, Lorena Peach. They
were escorted by Mr.
Grantham in his horse
drawn carriage. Three
very special people were
our judges for the parade
- Katie Rooney (North
Florida PAWS), Judge
Sonny Scaff and Cindi
Eatmon (Bass's Furni-
ture). Thank you for tak-
ing the time out to help
us.
At the end of the pa-
rade, Santa and Mrs.
Claus were seated in the
park where children told
them what they wanted
for Christmas. The chil-
dren could also have
their picture taken with
them.
Dance Works per-
formed on the tennis
courts and we had a vari-
ety of vendors in the
park, including the
world's tallest pinball
machine, snow cones,
cotton candy, smoothies
and BBQ. There were
many non-profits organi-


zations set up in the park
selling hot chocolate, na-
chos and cheese, and
cookies. Thank you,
everyone that participat-
ed in the park after the
parade.
Special thanks to Car-

Trial Court Administrator


Sondra Lanier William will handle duties for Third Judicial Circuit


Chief Judge E. Vernon Douglas
recently announced the
appointment of Sondra Lanier
Williams as the Trial Court
Administrator for the Third
Judicial Circuit, serving
Columbia, Dixie, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee
and Taylor counties. Williams, a

County, was selected by a vote of
the 14 judges in the Circuit.
Williams said, 'Tm honored to
have been selected for this
position in my home circuit, and I

such dedicated judges and staff."
Court Administration supports
the work of the judiciary through
planning, technology, court
reporting, management of the
courts' master calendar, case
management, budgeting, finance
and accounting, human resources,
and legal research. Court
administration also helps pro se
litigants move their cases through the
court system, provides mediation
services, provides foreign language
and sign language interpreters for
court proceedings, and works with
sheriffs and other local officials on
courthouse security issues.
Specialized courts coordinated by
Court Administration staff in the
Third Judicial Circuit include Drug
Court, Mental Health Court and
Truancy Court.

Florida's Task Force on Children's
Justice, a Senior Court Analyst at the
Office of the State Courts

Court, and a Deputy Clerk at the
Leon County Clerk of Courts.

Public Administration from Troy

"I look forward to working with
our judges and staff, as well as local
leaders in the seven counties of the
Circuit, to ensure that the services we
provide are of the highest quality
possible, that all people have access
to our courts, and that our citizens are
safe when they come into our

Florida's major political debates, the Decision 2008 partners

Overweight? You Could Blame Intestinal Bacteria


Have you made a resolution to drop a few pounds
only to find that no matter what diet you follow, you
don't see much of a change when you get on the scale?
You may be able to blame intestinal bacteria, say
researchers.
There are trillions of bacteria living on the skin, in the
nose, mouth, stomach, and intestines of the human
body. Most of these bacteria are microscopic helpers,
doing the cleaning and breakdown tasks necessary for
healthy living. They digest food particles that people
simply cannot digest on their own.
In recent years, emphasis into the study of intestinal
bacteria has increased. Up until now, the depths of the
digestive tract have gone largely unexplored. Scientists
are now discovering connections between bacteria and
the way food is used and produced for the body. An
offshoot of this research is probiotics.
Probiotics are dietary supplements containing
potentially beneficial bacteria to help with digestion.
Probiotic supplementation is popping up in yogurt and
other food sources. These helpful bacteria are
purported to fend off stomach discomfort and diarrhea.

Too much of a good thing...
In regard to obesity, researchers have discovered that
some of the bacteria residing in the gastrointestinal
system are just too good at their jobs; call them the
overachievers of the intestines. Research has indicated
that bacteria in the guts of obese mice are better at
extracting energy from food than the gut bacteria in
lean mice. Basically, the obese mice take away more
energy (calories) from their food than the lean mice.
What's more, when the lean mice were injected with


the bacteria from fat mice, they gained weight, too.
When human subjects were introduced, most of the
same conclusions were found. Bacteria called Firmicutes
seem to be the bacteria responsible for high energy
consumption, while Bacteroidetes are the bacteria that
use the energy and burn off excess calories. More
Frimicutes were found in obese individuals. The theory is
the Firmicutes are like a fuel-efficient car, taking more
energy from the fuel (food) and passing it on to the
vehicle (body). While the Bacteroidetes are gas guzzlers,
quickly depleting the fuel stores.
More Firmicutes are present in obese mice and humans.
And in studies, regardless of what the obese test subjects
ate whether low-fat food or high-caloric junk -
Firmicutes simply extracted a higher level of calories.
This means depending upon the bacteria present in the
gut, a person may extract different amounts of calories
from foods. So if a person with more Firmicutes and one
with less ate the same food containing 100 calories in a
serving, the Firmicutes-rich gut may absorb more calories
than the Bacteroidetes-rich gut. A difference of even 10 to
20 calories a day could add up to significant weight
differences.

Not a free for all
This research doesn't indicate that a person should go to
extremes with consuming high-fat foods and blame
weight gain simply on microbiotics. These bacteria are
just one factor into the reasons why some people seems to
process food differently than others. A balanced 4ieta<-
exercise are still the best means to keeping a health ii
weight.
