State song


finalist


selected
"Florida, Where the
Sawgrass Meets the Sky"
may replace "Swanee River"
By Jeff Waters
jeff. waters@gaflnews.com
Floridians have chosen a finalist in the competi-
tion for a new state song. "Florida, Where the Saw-
grass Meets the Sky," written by Jan Hinton of
Pompano Beach, has been chosen to replace
Stephen Foster's "The Swanee River (Old Folks at
Home)." The winner was announced on Jan. 11 at
the Florida Music Educator's Association Confer-
ence.
The selection will have to go before lawmakers
for approval. Senators Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville,
and Rep. Ed Homan, R-Tampa, will sponsor legis-
lation to replace the current song with the new
one.
Many have been pushing to replace the current
song, because of its racial overtones and references
to plantation life. Gov. Charlie Crist chose not to

talks about a
traumatic
experience
from her past
in tomorrow's
episode

The 52 Miss America
hopefuls met at the pool
for. a pop quiz in the sec-
ond episode of Miss
America: Reality Check.
If a contestant answered


a question wrong in the
"Are You Smarter Than
a Miss USA Girl?" chal-
lenge, then she had to
jump in the pool.
Miss Florida Kylie
Williams was one of the
first girls to be eliminat-
ed. After a few anxious
moments she dived into
the water and was soon
followed by more girls.
When all the girls had
been eliminated and
took a swim, they faced
celebrity hair stylist
Kim Vo and makeup
guru Napoleon Perdis
Vo and Perdis offered
each girl advice on how
to update her image
with a makeover and
new hairstyle. Each one
had to decide to accept,
all the advice or none of
it. Even after a dip in the
pool, Williams' natural
beauty was evident.
While Vo and Perdis
found little reason to
change her makeup or
hairstyle, they planned

Academy (FLVA) and
Connections, with a cap of
500 students per school in
order to reduce the current
class size. In 2005 the Flori-
da Legislature passed a bill
allowing the K-8 Virtual
Schools pilot program to
become permanent with
funding on a year-to-year
basis. In 2006 this allowed
enrollment numbers to in-
crease to 950 students per
school.
In order to be accepted
into these schools a child
must be a first-time
Kindergartener or first
grader without prior pub-
lic school attendance. Sec-
ond through eighth
graders must be currently
enrolled and attending a
public school.
Both schools follow Sun-
shine State Standards and
are considered public
schools. FLVA and Con-
nections students meet
hourly requirements, take
statewide mandated tests
and have certified teachers.
These programs are "mas-
tery based," allowing chil-
dren to move ahead easily.
The current curriculum for
FLVA is K12 and is used
throughout the nation in
virtual schools, charter
schools and homeschools.
FLVA offers a variety of
field trips and dubs, in-
cluding Math Club, Book
Club, Chess Club and Ad-
vanced Learner Programs.

Two families in Jasper
have children enrolled in
the FLVA program. Leslie
and Donald Carter of
Jasper have three daugh-
ters., Their twin girls are en-
rolled in FLVA and their
three-year-old daughter is
also benefitting from their
home school classes. Leslie
Is the Florida Coalition of

have two children. Their
ten-year-old daughter is
enrolled in the program
and their' three-year-old
son is eagerly waiting for
his turn. Peggy is a Florida
Coalition of Virtual Fami-
lies Member and a FLVA
Parent.

The Carter family
view:
Florida Virtual Academy
has been 'such a blessing
for our family. As parents,
we began'thinking about
our children's education
early, wanting the best for
them. We worked with the
girls from a very young
age and when it came time
for preschool they scored
above level in all areas at
their screening.
As a parent who attend-
ed the public school sys-
tem in Hamilton County, I
was unsure if I wanted my
children to attend school
here. The excellent teachers
in Hamilton County could
not outweigh the discipli-
nary problems in a setting

beam that will test their
confidence and adaptabili-


of 20-25 students per class-
room.
After researching many
options, such as home
schooling, private schools,
and surrounding county
schools, we heard about
FLVA.
The school has been
wonderful for our family.
Both girls are working a
year above grade level, and
both read on a fifth grade
level. As parents, we can
be completely involved in
their education, to ensure
they are not picking up un-
wanted behaviors, and still
know they are receiving all
they need because they
must meet Florida educa-
tion requirements.
They are not retained
based on the amount of
children in a classroom or
disciplinary problems a
teacher may face daily.
This school gives our chil-
dren the opportunity to
meet their individual ex-
pectations as opposed to
having to meet the stan-
dards of a classroom of 15-
22 other students. They
must master each lesson,
ensuring they fully grasp
what was taught. Even our
three-year-old joins in with
our lessons and has
learned her. continents,
days of the week, and
much more.

The Boston family
view:
When your child comes
home with plans for col-
lege, tells you her fourth
grade class is not challeng-
ing, and her teacher asks if
she can pay your child to
tutor her peers after school,
it's time for a change. After
driving 25 miles one way
to another school district
with a higher "grade" than
our local "F" grade school,
from kindergarten through
fourth grade, in hopes of
an improved educational
system, we were very dis-
heartened by the outcome.
As much as an educator
may want to teach, they
are forced into a bureau-
cratic system of numbers
as opposed to children.
The brick and mortar pub-
lic school system makes
provision for handicapped
children of all sorts, but
when you exchange handi-
capped for gifted, there is


ty. Next an expert
le walking coach will
: teach the girls how to
work it like they are on
m. a runway in Paris. Fi-
C nally a celebrity de-
signer will show them
Im how to accentuate the
good and disguise the
" not so good.
After the girls show
" what, they learned in
- the Little Black Dress
challenge, they will
face the advisory
board again to find out
who ranked at the top and
who ranked at the bottom


no provision made at all.
The K12 curriculum
through Florida Virtual
Academy is offering us a
tremendous opportunity
and alternative.
Our daughter, Dixie, is
an extremely bright ten-
year-old who plans to at-
tend her favorite college,
the University of Florida,
after graduating high
school early with honors
and a two-year Associates
Degree under her belt. She
also plans to write a novel
and study snow leopards
in Asia.
Dixie is a pianist, dancer,
Junior Girl Scout and a
Bronze medal winner for
the Iron Kids Triathlon. In
2006, she was awarded a
$1,000 scholarship bond
when she won the Pre-
Teen America Scholarship
and Recognition Program,
Florida Division Jr. Title-
holder, and then placed in
the top 20 at the National
Competition in Baton
Rouge, La.
Through FLVA and K12
Dixie has the challenge she
has been seeking. The
learning process has be-
come a family affair. We
are able to connect so
much of what is being of-
fered through K12 and
FLVA with our daily lives
and share the educational
experience as a family.
Dixie always saves her
science projects to do with
Dad and art is always
shared with her brother,
Seth. We have the flexibili-
ty to work at her pace and
maintain regular atten-
dance even when we are
having a really bad day.
In our opinion, virtual
school is the answer to the
bureaucracy and unneces-
sary complexity that our
brick and mortar schools
have become.

BATHROOM
Repair leaks and drips in toilets and faucets.
f Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps
into the bowl, you have a leak. Fixing it can
save hundreds of gallons a month.
6 Turn off water whie you brush your teeth or
shave. You'll save 4 gallons a minute.
& Install low-volume toilets.
SDon't use your toilet for a wastebasket.
SLimit showers to five minutes, saving up to
1000 gallons a month.
4 Install low-flow showerheads, and save
hundreds of gallons a week.
KITCHEN
Run therdshwasheronlywhen you have
full load. (Same goes for washing machines for
laundry.)
When washing dishes by hand, don't leave
water running. Instead, fill one dishpan with
soapy water for washing and another pan with
clean water for rinsing.
When you're thirsty, don't let tap run until
water gets cool. Instead, keep a bottle of
drinking water in the refrigerator.
GENERAL TIPS
Check your water meter and bill to track your
water usage.
Comply with any water restrictions that your
city, county, or water management district has
Imposed.


.OUTDOORS
CAR WASHING GE 'JeRAL LEANING
tl Wash your car on the grass. This will water the lawn at the same
time, and prevent wasteful runoff.
A Equip your hose with an automatic shutoff nozzle.
SUsing a broom not a hose to clean your driveway, sidewalk
or deck could save dozens of gallons of water every time. -
LAWN AND GARDEN
WATERING
* Water before 10 a.m. and alter 4 p.m. to reduce water
evaporation.
* Water your lawn In several short sessions rather than one long
one. This will allow the water to be better absorbed.
SOnly water your lawn when needed. You can tell this by simply
walking across your lawn. If you leave footprints, it's time to
water.
* Use sprinklers with automatic timers preferably equipped with
rain sensors set for early morning or late evening hours.
SUse drip Irrigation systems for trees, flowers and shrubs.
When watering by hand, use hose equipped with automatic
shutoff nozzle.
I Adjust sprinklers so you water only the lawn not the streets or
sidewalks.
PLANTING
It Group your plants according to their water needs.
6 Use drought-resistant or native plants and grass.
Mulch around plants to hold In moisture, promote plant growth,
and reduce weeds.
4 Weed your lawn and garden regularly. Weeds compete with other
plants for water.
A Prune back heavy foliage. Reducing leaf area reduces water
needs.
Replace some of the grass In your yard with ground cover,
shrub or landscaping rock. 3UWAN
* Adjust the height of lawnmower blade so that you never RI
remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade. Shorter grass MANAGEM
requires more water. nDIST
* Mow your lawn less often. Mowing "stresses" your lawn,
causing It to need more water. Caso

Watch for Tax Law changes


With millions of tax
packages beginning to
arrive in mailboxes, the
Internal Revenue Service
reminds taxpayers to
watch for commonly
overlooked tax credits
and late tax law changes
that could affect their tax
returns.
The IRS is sending 16.5
million 1040 tax pack-
ages to taxpayers this
month who have filed
paper tax returns in the
past. The number of pa-
per packages has
dropped rapidly in re-
cent years, falling from
34 million packages in
just four years. The paper
packages are becoming
much less common as the
popularity of electronic
filing soars. Last year,
nearly 80 million tax re-
turns used e-file, repre-
senting about 57 percent
of all returns.
This year, the individ-
ual income tax packages
mailed to taxpayers do
not include any tax cred-
it forms and certain other
forms due to late tax law
changes involving the al-
ternative minimum tax
(AMT) "patch." Copies
of these are available on
IRS.gov. Taxpayers who
e-file should update their
tax software to ensure
that they are using the


updated forms.
The IRS has targeted
Feb. 11 as the potential
starting date for taxpay-
ers to begin submitting
the five AMT-related re-
turns affected by the leg-
islation. The delay will
affect any taxpayer using
any of these five forms:
Form 8863. Education
Credits, Form 5695 Res-
idential Energy Credits,
Form 1040A's Schedule 2
- Child and Dependent
Care Expenses for Form
1040A Filers, Form 8396 -
Mortgage Interest Credit
and Form 8859 District
of Columbia First-Time
Homebuyer Credit.
Electronic returns in-
volving those five forms
will not be accepted until
systems are updated in
February. Similarly, pa-
per filers should wait to
file as well. All other e-
file and paper returns
will be accepted starting
in January.
The IRS urges affected
taxpayers to file electron-
ically in order to reduce
wait times for their re-
funds. E-file with direct
deposit gets refunds in as
little as 10 days, while
paper returns take four
to six weeks. Especially
for taxpayers affected by
the AMT changes, e-file
with direct deposit is the


fastest way to get a re-
fund.
Indeed, the IRS expects
continued growth in IRS
e-file, which is now in its
22nd year. Taxpayers can
file their returns elec-
tronically one of three
ways: through their tax
preparer, through over-
the-counter software or
through IRS Free File.
IRS Free File is a part-
nership between the IRS
and a consortium of tax
software manufacturers
who offer free software
and free electronic filing
to taxpayers who meet
certaincriteria. For 2008;
taxpayers who earned
$54,000 or less will be eli-
gible for Free File. Ap-
proximately 70 percent of
all taxpayers, or 95 mil-
lion people, will meet the
income criteria. Taxpay-
ers must access Free File
through IRS.gov.
Taxpayers also should
be aware of important
tax credits such as the
Earned Income Tax
Credit (EITC), the Saver's
Credit and the Child Tax
Credit. Taxpayers must
meet certain income lim-
its for all three but tax
credits such as these can
significantly lower tax
bills or increase refunds.

Seeking historical items


Hamilton County has a
remarkable history that
can be told through its
residents, but only occa-
sionally is this history re-
vealed. The citizens of the
community now have the
opportunity to share their
rich history with the Unit-
ed States.
I would like to request
the use of photographs,
original drawings, small
paintings, letters and doc-
uments for the possible
inclusion in a book. I am
looking for items that
capture the essence of the
county, including Jasper,
Jennings and White
Springs. Of particular in-
terest are photos of agri-
cultural activities, saw
mill activities, prominent
figures in the community,


the Spring House, the
Jasper Blues, and the
schools and homes in the
county. If anyone has any
photos or information
pertaining to the Sewing
Room in Jennings, I
would like to include that
as well, as Jennings', spe-
cial interest. T.Ie pictures
should reflect both the
every day life of citizens
in our county, and the
special events that shaped
our county, throughout
our history.
Please join me in this ef-
fort to show others what a
charming and unique

Jan. 15, 2007
It's been a year since you I
were killed so tragically that day.
But, it seems like it was just yesterday.
There's an emptiness in our ..
hearts that will never go away.
The sadness and tears are
here to stay.
But, one day, our son, our brother,
when our time has come,.
instead of sadness, there will be joy,
instead of tears, there will be smiles,
because we know
we will see you in a little while.
Sadly missed,

Dixie Boston has. re-
ceived the Junior Girl
Scout Bronze Award, the
highest recognition for Ju-
nior Girl Scouts. She will
be recognized at the
Medals of Honor Ceremo-
ny in Jacksonville on Feb.
10.
The Girl Scout Bronze
Award shows that Dixie
has made a promise to
help others, improve her
community and world,
and to become the best she
can be. She has shown her
dedication to Girl Scouting
by earning two badges re-
lating to the project, com-
pleting one of the Girl
Scout Signs, earning the
Junior Aide Patch or Lead-
ership Award, choosing a
project, doing it and evalu-
ating it. The development
of her leadership and deci-
sion making skills will
benefit her school and
community will spring-
board her into Cadet Girl
Scouting.
The Suwannee River Re-
newal Project was Dixie's
Bronze Award Project in
2007. She loves to hike the
trails surrounding the riv-
er and noticed there was


so much trash that her
family alone could never
clean it up. She recruited
classmates, fellow Girl
Scouts and friends to join
her in a morning of
garbage pick up.
With the support of the
Suwannee River Water
Management District she
obtained copies of her fly-
er as well as plastic gloves
and garbage bags. Thir-
teen people helped dean
for several hours and col-.
lected 13 industrial sized
bags of trash and glass.
Dixie chose this date be-
cause King's life repre-
sents change. Coretta Scott
King memorialized her
husband by stating this
holiday is a day to bring
communities together in
his honor.
So, on Monday, Jan. 21,
instead of just watching
the parade and having a
BBQ, join us at Suwannee
Springs at 9 a.m. to help
bring ug y oB
munity service, ,
This year, the Suwannee
River renewal project will
be held Monday, Jan. 21,
Martin Luther King Jr.
Day.

The Hamilton County High School Tro-
jans varsity basketball team played host to
their rival Madison County High Cowboys
Friday night, Jan. 11, in fr6nt of a packed
house in Jasper. The Trojans didn't disap-
point as they went on to win the game by a
final score of 60-45.
Madison began the game hot, making 5
of their first 8 shots, including their first
two three-point attempts. Deangelo Tucker
made a three-pointer in the comer on
Madison's first possession. However,
Hamilton also scored on their first posses-
sion on a nice pass by senior Malcolm Pol-
lock to fellow senior Robin McClain.
The crowd really got excited on the next
few plays as Madison had the ball stolen by
junior Ti'Wan'Cooks. Cooks looked ahead
and passed to Pollock who finished the
play with a resounding
slam dunk that gave *
Hamilton the early lead.
After 5 straight Cowboy Fri Jan. 18
points, Hamilton came Sat Jan. 19
back with 3 of their own Tue Jan. 22
on a driving layup by se- Thur Jan. 24
nior Howard Webb and a
free throw by junior Josh
Jones. HCHS trailed the Cowboys 8-7 with
4:30 left in the quarter.
After a Tucker jumper for Madison, the
two teams exchanged three-point plays.
Jones made a three-point shot for Hamilton
but Madison came back with an old-fash-
ioned three-point play with a layup and a
freethrow after a Hamilton foul. That gave
Madison a three-point lead with 3:45 to go
in the opening period.
At that point, the Trojans scored the next
6 points of the game. Cooks made 1 of 2
* free throws. Senior Jermaine Walker then
* proceeded to score the next 5 points in a
row. He made a pull up jumper at the free
throw line and a three-pointer from the
right wing.
After a Madison layup, the Trojans led
16-15 at the end of the first quarter.
HCHS jumped out with the first 5 points
- of the second quarter in just under a minute
of playlto take a 21-15 lead. Pollock passed
to Jones forra nice up-and-under layup and
then Pollock was the recipient of a nice pass
from Cooks as he made a three-pointer


from the left wing.
After a jumper from Madison's Xavier
Tillman, Jones scored 4 points in a row on
two free throws and a tip in. That made the
score 25-17 HCHS with about 6 minutes left
in the half.
Tillman would then make 1 of 2 free
throws. Then, McClain put back in a
missed shot for the Trojans and Cooks
made a nice steal and took it all the way in
for a layup, extending the Trojan lead to 11.
On the next time down the court, Madi-
son went back to Tillman who made a shot
and was fouled on the play. That play end-
ed the 19-5 Trojan run and brought the
Cowboys to within 8. Tillman scored again
to make it 29-23 Hamilton with 2:10 left in
the second quarter.
Fortunately for the Trojans, they scored
the last 6.points of the half. Jones made a

baseline jumper. Junior Vion Lanier made
two free throws. Then, senior Gareth John-
son grabbed a strong rebound and found
Walker on the wing. Walker made a nice
pump fake and pulled up for another
jumper. Hamilton led 35:23 at the half.
Madison scored on'their opening posses-
sion of the third quarter but so did the Tro-
jans. Jones and McClain completed a pretty
pick and roll play for the Trojan's first
points of the half. Pollock excited the crowd
once again with a behind the back dribble
to go by a defender. As the other Madison
defender came his way, Pollock made a
great pass to McClain, who finished the
play with a layup. On the next time down
the court, Pollock made a jump shot to give
Hamilton its biggest lead of the game at 41-
25 with 5:25 to play in the third quarter.
After a Madison score, Hamilton went on
a 7-0 run to end the quarter. Pollock drove
baseline for a reverse layup. Lanier passed
to senior Anthony Stevens who made a
nice hook shot on an inbounds play.
Stevens also made a free throw. Lanier also


made a running jumper. That gave Hamil-
ton a 48-27 lead entering the final quarter of
play.
Madisofi started the 4th quarter strong by
scoring the first 6 points of the period and
cutting the Trojan lead to 15.
Hamilton stopped the 6-0 run with a nice
pass from Pollock to McClain, who made
the shot and was fouled on the play. After
the missed free throw, Madison's Tillman
scored to make it 50-35 Hamilton.
The two teams exchanged buckets over
the next minute of play. Then, Hamilton's
Cooks scored 4 points in a row on a driving
finger roll and a put back giving HCHS a
56-37 lead with 4:21 remaining in the game.
Madison responded with 4 points in a
row of their own. However, Pollock sealed
the win for the Trojans with a layup and an
assist to Stevens, making it 60-41 with only

Give coon huntin' .a try


By Tony Young

Some of my huntin' buddies
and me really live for being out
in a wet patch of woods in the
middle of a cool night and hear-
ing the not-so-distant sounds of
our Walker hounds when they
open up on a hot coon trail.
There's just something about
those hounds' voices that sound
both pleasing and eerie at the
same time.
We like to brag about whose


dog actually struck the trail first
and whose got to the right tree
first. Boy, you can sure tell the
difference when the dogs are
just trailing a coon and when
they've got 'em treed. Their,
barking goes from longer, less
frequent howls to just down
right choppin' it down, baying
as loud as they can, as quick as
they can, with every breath
that's in 'em. You can really
sense the urgency in their voices
when they're on the tree.
That's when it's time to turn
on the flashlights and start mak-
ing your way through, the
swamps toward that pleasant,
oh, too familiar sound in the
darkness.
If you'd like to try coon


huntin', besides having, a good
coon d6g, you'll need a Florida
hunting license. Residents pay
just $17 for the year. Nonresi-
dents have the choice of paying
$46.50 for a 10-day license or
$151.50 for 12 months.
If you're thinking about hunt-
ing on one of Florida's many
wildlife management areas
(WMAs), you also must pur-
chase a management area per-
mit for $26.50. But find out
which WMAs allow coon
huntin' by reading the brochure
on each area you're thinking
about trying. These WMA
brochures are at your local tax
collector's office, or online at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
All licenses and permits are
available at county tax collec-
tors' offices, any retail outlet that
sells hunting and fishing sup-
plies, online at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com or call toll-free 1-888-
HUNT-FLORIDA.
Coon huntin' with dogs at
night, while using a flashlight or
headlamp, is allowed. On pri-
vate property, when in posses-
sion of written landowner per-
mission, you may hunt raccoons
year-round, but most of us pre-
fer to hunt 'em during the cold-
er months so as not to get our
dogs snakebit or attacked by
gators.
You're only allowed to har-
vest raccoons, and opossums for
that matter, using .22-caliber
firearms (other than .22-mag-
nums) or single-shot .410-gauge
shotguns with shot no larger
than No. 6. During the hunt, all
firearms must remain unloaded
except immediately prior to
shooting treed or bayed rac-
coons or opossums.
There are no daily or seasonal


bag limits on .how many rac-
coons or opossums you may
harvest, and hides and skins of
these furbearers may be pos-
sessed in any number, at any
time.
All dogs used in pursuing rac-
coons or opossums are required
to wear collars or tags which
identify dog owners and their
addresses. Hunting either
furbearer by "shining" or using
lights from moving vehicles,
boats or animals is against the
law. It's also illegal to transport
wild-trapped live raccoons
within, into or from Florida.
Individuals with a trapping li-
cense ($26.50) also may take rac-
coons and opossums by means
of live-trapping or the use of
snares; but these traps must be
checked at least every 24 hours.
Using steel or leg-hold traps is
prohibited.
Only those persons with a
trapping license are authorized
to sell the hides and meat of
thesefurbearers. In order to buy
and sell this meat for commer-
cial purposes, you're required to
possess a dealer's license, which
you can get from the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' Division of
Food Safety by calling 850-488-
0295.
So if you're looking for a new
and exciting huntin' opportuni-
ty, get ahold of a good coon dog,
grab your .22, a flashlight and a
pair of hip waders and take to
the swamps!
Here's wishing you good
huntin'. If you can, introduce
someone new to a different kind
of hunting pass the tradition
down. As always, have fun,
hunt safely and ethically, and
we'll see you in the woods!

Tips for safe heating


Home heating remains
the second highest cause
of fire in the home. Na-
tional Fire Protection As-
sociation (NFPA) suggests
the following for safe
heating:
Maintain a three-foot
(or one meter) separation
between things that can
burn and heating equip-
ment.
When buying a new
space heater, make sure it
carries the mark of an in-
dependent testing labora-
tory and is legal for use in
your community. (Some
communities do not per-
mit portable kerosene
heaters, for example.)
Install your stationary
(fixed) space heater ac-
cording to manufacturer's,
instructions or applicable
codes or better yet, have it
installed by a profession-
al,
Plug your electric-pow-
ered space heater into an
outlet with sufficient. ca-
pacity and never into an
S"'% tension cord.'
Use the proper grade of
the proper fuel for- your


liquid-fueled space heater,
and never juse gasoline in
any heater not approved
for gasoline use. Refuel
only in a well-ventilated
area and when the equip-
ment is cool-
In your fireplace or
wood stove, use only dry,
seasoned wood to avoid
the build-up of creosote,
an oily deposit that easily
catches fire and accounts
for most .chimney fires
and the largest share of
home heating fires gener-
ally. Use only paper or
kindling wood, not a
flammable liquid, to start
the fire. Do not use artifi-
cial logs in wood stoves.
Make kure your fire-
place has a sturdy screen
to prevent sparks from
flying into the room. Al-
low fireplace and wood
stove ashes to cool before
disposing in a metal con-
tainer, which is kept a safe
distance from your home.
Turn off space heaters
whenever the room" they
are in is unoccupied or
under circumstances
when manufacturer's in-


structions say they should
be turned off. Portable
space heaters are so easy
to knock over in the dark
that they should be turned
off when you go to bed,
but make sure your pri-
mary heating equipment
for bedrooms is sufficient
to avoid risks to residents
from severe cold.
Do not use your oven to
heat your home.
Make sure fuel-burning
equipment is vented to
the outside, that the vent-
ing is kept clear and unob-
structed, and that the exit
point is properly sealed
around the vent, all of
which is to make sure
deadly carbon monoxide
does not build up in the
home.
Inspect all heating
equipment annually, and
clean as necessary. Test
smoke alarms monthly;
install a carbon monoxide
alarm in a central location
outside each sleeping
area.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Again we are reminded
that there is no excuse for
not having something
worthwhile to do, and have
fun at the same time. Plans
are being made for a big
Jasper Birthday Celebra-
tion, sponsored by the
Chamber of Commerce.
For more information to
give or receive, contact the
Chamber of Commerce of-
fice. The City of Jasper is
actively involved. Let's
make it an event to truly
honor our city. A big pa-
rade is in the planning and
many other activities. His-
torical news is welcomed.
Watch the Jasper News for
information, or call. Be ac-
tively involved so we can
have something to remem-
ber ourselves and for the
future of our children and
grandchildren.
As usual we always have
something about food to
bring to your attention.
Hamilton County Brother-
hood is coming up. We will
have more information
next week. It will be at
White Springs Methodist


Church.
Preparations are being
made for a second annual
Chili Cookoff soon, (we
keep mentioning events so
you will look forward to
reading the paper next
week). Last year was a big
success. I went late and did
not get any so will plan to
get there early this year.
Watch the paper for more
information.
Doug Barker was or-
dained as an Elder at First
Presbyterian Church on
Sunday. Doug and Bill
Taylor have been added to
the serving elder list for the
next three years.
Our sympathy goes to
the family of Vivian Man-
ning who passed away last
week at Suwannee Valley
Nursing Center (SVNC).
Vivian and Bruton were
some of the first people we
met in Jasper. Of course Bil-
ly Mitchell and family were
the first, but we ate at the
restaurant and went next
door and bought a Hot-
point refrigerator. We had
a baby and our biggest


' need was for a place for his
food.
The Mannings wel-
comed us and made us feel
'welcome immediately. We
.later met their family -
Yvonne was a young lady
with many friends who still
keep in touch; Joan later be-
came a nurse (and that is
another story for me). Once
when I had to take Benjy to
Vald6sta and I was imme-
diately sent to the hospital
(now South Georgia Med-
ical Center), I was alone at
the time, frightened for my
six-year-old son, and was
put in a room across from
the nurses' station. How
blessed to see a familiar
smiling face. Joan immedi-
ately was the calming ef-
fected for us.
Tommy would come
with Bruton to keep our
television set going, and
work right along with his
Dad. We will miss Vivian,
she was always sitting at a
certain place at SVNC, with
a smile for everyone as
long as she was able. It
does not seem right out
there as she and Thomas
Lewis are both missing.
Our sympathy to both fam-
ilies.
Marion Turner is now at
Suwannee Healthcare &


Rehabilitative Center in
Live Oak, where she will
continue her physical ther-
apy. Marion has been such
an important part of our
community ever since
moving here. Her efforts on
behalf of Jasper, Hamilton
County and in many activ-
ities have always been en-


couraging to the area. We
pray that she will be able to
return to us; we need her
input and support.

JOUSTING: Hoggetown Medieval Faire features jousting performances in Gainesville Jan. 26-27 and Feb. 1-3. -Photo: Submitted



Hoggetowne Medieval Faire



returns to Gainesville


The Alachua County Fairgrounds
will come alive when the sounds of
trumpets, minstrels and revelry return
to Gainesville as part of one of North
Central Florida's premier events. The
22nd Annual Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire once again brings magic and
merriment to Florida. Join hundreds
of actors, artisans and volunteers for
two weekends of excitement, Jan. 26-
27 and Feb. 1-3
Join the crowd and cheer for your
favorite contender as mounted
knights joust in full plate armor on
the tournament field. Applaud street
performers who dance,
juggle and jest for your
amusement. Listen to
minstrels playing period
music and enjoy
continuous live
entertainment on eight
stages: The bustling
medieval marketplace is
the perfect place to browse
for that perfect gift or
trinket.
Enjoy your day watching
a living chess game played
out with human chess
pieces as Robin Hood and
his Merry Men battle
against the evil Sheriff of
Nottingham, or test your
own skills in games of
chance, and strength.
Watch and learn as artisans
demonstrate blacksmithing,
weaving, leatherworking,
woodcarving, pottery and
much more. Our food court
provides visitors with
mouth-watering treats fit
for a king. Indulge in
sweet potato fries,
bloomin' onions or our
famous giant turkey legs,
as well as a variety of


pastries and desserts.
The Faire is the perfect place to
bring even the youngest members of
the kingdom. Children delight in
visiting the royal pavilion, where
they will become lords and ladies of
the court of Hoggetowne. Treat not
only your children, but also yourself
with rides on a camel, pony or even
an elephant. Human-powered push
rides further add to the authentic
medieval fun.
Faire hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
on Saturdays and Sundays and 9:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Admission

Learning about Arthritis


As most middle-aged men and women would attest, an
aging body is one that experiences more than a few
changes. Among the more common changes is a decrease
in vision or hearing and a reduction in how much exercise
the body can take. While everyone's body is different, it's
safe to say both men and women can expect a change or
two in their body's makeup as they get older.

One of the most common chronic health problems
among Americans is arthritis, which affects 46 million
adults in the United States alone. While most people are
aware of the word "arthritis," they might not be aware of
the specifics surrounding these conditions.

What is Arthritis?

Unbeknownst to many people, arthritis is not actually a
single disease. In fact, arthritis refers to more than 100
medical conditions. And though arthritis is commonly
associated with senior citizens, it is not restricted to the
older set. While the most common form of arthritis
generally afflicts those over the age of 60, young adults,
the middle-aged and even infants are not immune to
arthritis.

So why is arthritis such a blanket term? All types of
arthritis share one commonality, which is they affect the
musculoskeletal system, in particular the body's joints.
Arthritic conditions can result in pain, stiffness and
inflammation of the joints and can cause damage to a
joint's cartilage as well. Damaged cartilage can make
seemingly ordinary tasks such as brushing your teeth,
walking or even using your computer's keyboard very
difficult.

While joint problems are the piece that links all types of
arthritis, the damage done by arthritis can extend beyond
the joints as well. Systemic arthritis can affect the body's
major organs, such as the heart, lungs and kidneys, among
other things.

Who Gets Arthritis?

According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than half
those affected with arthritis are under the age of 65. Those
numbers include the nearly 300,000 children who suffer
from an arthritic condition.

As for men and women, women are more likely to be
stricken with arthritis. Of the more than 41 million cases
of doctor diagnosed arthritis, roughly 24 million are
women.


Arthritis can make something as simple as typing on
your keyboard a painful and laborious process.

What Are the Types of Arthritis?

Though there are more than 100 medical conditions
classified under the umbrella term arthritis, the following
types are a few that qualify.

Rheumatoid arthritis: This affects mostly women and is
one of the most disabling forms of arthritis. It's serious
because, as the joint becomes inflamed, it has an adverse
affect on the body's immune system.

Juvenile arthritis: Like the term "arthritis," juvenile
arthritis is a general term and refers to a handful of arthritic
conditions affecting children.

Fibromyalgia: This can be very painful, affecting the
muscles and attachments to the bone. Rare in men,
fibromyalgia mainly affects women.

Gout: Unlike fibromyalgia, gout affects mostly men and
is often the result of a defect in body chemistry, one that can
be brought on by poor diet. Fortunately, gout, which often
attacks the big toe, can typically be controlled by both
medications and by making positive changes in diet.

Osteoarthritis: This occurs as bone cartilage begins to
deteriorate. As the cartilage at the ends of bones
deteriorates, bone begins to rub against bone, making
osteoarthritis one of the more painful and difficult to live
with forms of arthritis. The most prevalent form of arthritis,
osteoarthritis greatly limits a person's movements as the
cartilage continues to deteriorate.

To learn more about arthritis and its many forms, visit the
Arthritis Foundation Web site at www.arthritis.org.
