The local impact of



AMENDMENT


Amendment 1, the
much-discussed property
tax measure, finally goes
before voters next Tues-
day. Unlike an earlier
measure struck down by
the courts last fall,
Amendment 1 does not
ask homeowners to give


up the 3 percent annual
assessment cap imposed
by Save Our Homes. In-
stead, it contains four ele-
ments.
First, it is said to double
Floridians' $25,000 home-
stead exemption .al-
though, school taxes


(which account for about
half your property tax
dollars in Hamilton Coun-
ty) are exempt from the
measure.
Second, the plan adds
"portability" to the Save
Our Homes program,
meaning you can take
your savings with you
when you move.
Third, Amendment 1
imposes a 10 percent cap
on assessment hikes for
non-homestead property -

that completely burned
the top three layers of the
skin on her face.
Williams admitted to
the other girls in her
group that she was self-
conscious about the scars
caused by the accident.
She said she had been
hesitant to jump in the
pool during the second
episode because she did-
n't want the camera to
zoom in on her face after
the make-up washed off.
One of the girls in the
group told Kylie, "'You
wouldn't be here if you
weren't beautiful. The
light that comes from
within you is the most
beautiful thing about
you."'
Another girl agreed,
"When you speak, you
are so radiant. I can see
your personality when
you talk and I'm captivat-
ed by it."
The challenges in this
episode were designed to
test the contestants' com-
posure, confidence and
creativity. The first chal-
lenge was the Ultimate
Balancing Act, which test-
ed whether the 52 contes-
tants could keep their
poise under pressure.
Each girl had to carry a
glass of water across a
balancing beam teeter tot-
ter and pour the water
(what was left of it!) into a
container. The pink team
was the first to fill their
container with water and
won an advantage in the
gown critiquing event.
But first choreographer


Fred Tallaksen showed
the contestants how to
work it like they were on
a runway in Paris. He en-
couraged them to take big
strides and show off for
their audience. At the end
of the training session, he
told the girls, "Remem-
ber, you're the bomb."
Next the girls modeled
their pageant gowns for
the advisory board -
celebrity stylist Jeanie
Mae, US Weekly editor
Pina, Sansing, and
celebrity' photographer
Mark Liddell to see if
they fit the image of a
modem "it girl." Fashion
expert Randolph Duke
evaluated the gowns of
the girls in the pink team,
since they had won the
Ultimate Balancing Act
challenge. Liddell's assis-
tants, Lauren Kolodny
and Nina Peters, re-
viewed the other girls'
gowns.
They. could find no
fault with Williams sim-
ple, but elegant, black
gown. "You have a great
figure," I really like that
dress," and "It fits you
very well," were some of
the comments.
But Williams was dis-
satisfied. "Can't you be a
bit harsher? Do you have
any suggestions for me?"
she asked the advisory
board. The judges sug-
gested she wear a yellow
dress "It could be stun-
ning."
Later Williams said, "A
pat on the back is great.
But how can I move for-
ward if I don't get more
feedback from the


judges?"
Next the contestants
had a chance to show
what they had learned
from the fashion experts.
Each girl was given one
hour to transform a floor
length, long sleeved,
turtleneck dress into a
"little black dress." They
were provided an assort-
ment of accessories and
trims to use on their
dresses to show their cre-
ativity and individuality.
Williams used red plas-
tic wrap to make a belt for
her simply styled dress.
The advisory board was
impressed with, her cre-
ation. "It's adorable,"
Sansing said.
When the advisory
board met to choose the
top and bottom three
girls, Sansing noted that
Williams was wearing
less make-up. Liddell
said he thought she really
wanted to change.
Williams was one of the
six girls to be ranked ac-
cording to how they were
accepting the changes.
Mae told Williams,
"You are really taking our
advice. I love that about
you. I love your personal-
ity. But at the pool you
seemed a bit self-con-
scious and concerned
about not having make-
up on. Was there a rea-
son?"
After a long pause,
Williams began to cry
and answered, "I am a lit-
tle self-conscious about
no make-up. I shared my
story for the first time
with the green group and
they were so receptive."


Williams explained
about the accident when
she was younger and
said, "This experience has
taught me that maybe I
can be beautiful without a
lot of make-up and
big hair ... and I can
work it, she
added with a small
laugh.
"Part of being
Miss America is be-
ing a role model,"
Mae said. "So if
you're comfortable
sharing that story*
with others, I
would recommend
it because I think it
would help so
many other peo-
ple."
Williams, as well as
Miss Virginia Hannah
Kiefer and Miss Alaska
Cari Leyva were ranked
as the top three contes-
tants who were the most
receptive to change. Miss
Iowa Diana Reed, Miss
Tennessee Grace Gore
and Miss Rhode Island
Ashley Bickford were
ranked as the bottom
three who were most re-
sistant to change.
"I couldn't believe it,"
Williams said. I was
very surprised to be in
the top three. But I have
been taking the judges'
advice and I was glad I
asked for more because it
was helpful."
The contestants put to
test what they have
learned in "it girl" boot-
camp tomorrow in the
last episode. In the Don't
Forget America Lyrics
challenge, they have to


recite the lyrics to-Ameri-
can anthems. But this isn't
about who can carry a
tune, it's about showman-
ship and captivating your
audience no matter what


your talent. After the
challenge, several music
industry professionals
will give the girls advice.
Then the girls will face
their most difficult chal-
lenge the Red Carpet
Walk. They will have'to
use everything they have
learned about hair, make-
up, walking the runway
and dressing the part. The
paparazzi will be waiting
to snap away while the
advisory board asks the
tough questions Miss
America needs to be pre-
pared to answer.
As a result of this-ulti-
mate 'test, the advisory
board will award a prize
package to the top three
contestants 'who truly
capture the look, attitude
and personality of Miss
America. These will be
the girls to watch in the
pageant.
The Miss America


pageant will air live from
the Planet Hollywood Re-
sort and Casino in Las Ve-
gas, on TLC at 8 p.m. on
Saturday, Jan. 26, with
"Entertainment Tonight"
co-anchor and
corespondent
Mark Steines as
host.
The contestants
will face a panel of
Judges comprised
of experts in each
of the fields that a
young woman
S must excel in, in
order to be named
Miss America. The
one who wins the
1 crown must be
beautiful, talent-
ed, intelligent and
well-spoken, a leader,
have a commitment to her
community, be contem-
porary in her style and
fashion a relatable and
individual "it girl" who
can connect with today's
modem woman, as well
as being physically fit.
This year, America has
the opportunity to select a
surprise 16th pageant fi-
nalist with Miss America:

line competition that al-
lows viewers to vote for

ca contestant. Fans can

DEARPARENTS OF HIGH SCHOOL AND ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

During the past several months I have conferenced with our Hamilton
High School, Middle School, South Hamilton and NorthHamilton students
concerning drugs, criminal acts and good citizenship.

I want all parents to know that I am always available to you should
your child ever become a victim of a crime at school and you need
assistance in filing charges.

Just because a crime occurs on school property is no excuse for the
criminal not to be prosecuted, no matter what age he or she is.

If I can be of assistance, do not hesitate to call my office (386-792-
1220) or stop by to see me.

OUR VIEW


Send them back to the drawing board


Amendment 1, the
property tax measure on
Tuesday's ballot, is a far
cry from the comprehen-
sive reform Floridians
were promised during
last year's legislative de-
bates. We recommend a
vote against this propos-
al.
A state constitutional
amendment requiring
approval of 60 percent of
voters, Amendment 1
has four components -
three of which fail to
withstand scrutiny. Our


analysis follows.

1. 'Doubling' of the
homestead exemption
Amendment 1 is said
to double the current
$25,000 homestead ex-
emption in Florida. The
claim is misleading at
best. First, the new ex-
emption does not apply
to school taxes, which
account for about 40 per-
cent of your property tax
dollars. Second, the ad-
ditional exemption ap-
plies in full only to


A


homes with assessed
values of at least
$75,000. That's because
this element of Amend-
ment 1 targets the
"third" $25,000 of a
home's assessed value'
- anything between
$50,000 and $75,000.
Those with homes as-
sessed at $50,000 or less
will see no savings un-
der this part of the plan.
Those with homes as-
sessed at less than
$75,000 (but more than
$50,000) will see only


partial savings.
Hamilton County is
home to many a modest
dwelling, and some
folks here will see no re-
lief at all. Meanwhile,
the average Florida
homeowners will save
only about $240 a year.
Still, that's better than
nothing, isn't it? We'll
come back to that ques-
tion a bit later.

sion of Save Our Homes
is the most attractive el-
ement of Amendment 1.
The so-called "portabili-
ty" component of the
plan would allow home-
owners who have bene-
fited from the annual 3
percent assessment cap
imposed by Save Our
Homes to take their sav-
ings with them when
they move.
Let's say the assessed
value of your home is
$300,000, but due to sav-
ings accrued under Save
Our Homes you pay
property taxes on an as-
sessed .value of just
$150,000. Under current
law, if you move, you
have to start all over
again. You're still pro-
tected by the 3 percent
assessment cap, but the
meter resets at zero. If
your new home is as-
sessed at, say, $400,000,
you'll pay taxes on the
full amount.
Under Amendment 1
that wouldn't be the
case. You could move to
that new $400,000 home
and take your entire
Save Our Homes benefit
with you. That means
you'd only pay taxes on
an assessed value of
$250,000 $400,000 mi-
nus the $150,000 savings
previously accrued.
If you moved to a less
expensive home, you'd
be able to take a propor-
tionate share of your ac-
crued savings with you.
If your new home were
assessed at $200,000,
you would be taxed on
an assessed value of
$100,000 half that
amount. That's because
your previous accrued
savings ($150,000)
amounted to half the as-
sessed value of your
previous home
($300,000). (Note:
Homestead exemptions
apply all the way
around.)
Here's the problem.
Experts in constitutional
law believe this element
of Amendment 1 could
be struck down by the
courts (though only af-
ter years of costly litiga-
tion, of course).
Save Our Homes has
already been challenged
in federal court, on the
grounds that it violates
the constitutional right
to travel without gov-
ernment interference
(the argument being that
newcomers are treated
unfairly in relation to
long-time homeowners).
According to Florida
TaxWatch, a conserva-
tive, well-respected crit-
ic of government waste,
portability might only
make things worse.
"Portability would in-
crease the scope and the
magnitude of that dis-
parity and thereby in-
crease the chances of a
successful challenge [to
Save Our Homes] on
federal constitutional
grounds," reads the
group's official report
on Amendment 1.
If the portability pro-
vision is eventually
ruled unconstitutional,
the state could be or-


.4


dered to pay billions to
those who were denied
that benefit. The
TaxWatch report quotes
a leading tax attorney,
hired by the legislature
to assess this exact risk,
as follows: "If I were a
legislator, I would not
have supported a consti-
tutional amendment that
in my judgment would
put the state treasury at
some risk."
And if the portability
provision isn't struck
down by the courts?
What remains is a basic
question of fairness. Is it
right that those who
have*benefited from the
boon of Save Our Homes
receive even more relief,
while others those
who need help the most
- are provided none?
We believe a more equi-
table solution may be in
order.

3. 10 percent cap on non-
homestead assessments
Owners, of small busi-
nesses (or of second
homes) could benefit
from this one in theo-
ry. Amendment 1 caps
annual assessment hikes
at 10 percent for non-
homestead properties.
However, such assess-
ments here rarely rise at
more than half that rate
- rendering this ele-
ment of Amendment 1
virtually meaningless.

4. $25,000 tangible per-
sonal property exemp-
tion
This element of
Amendment 1, which
provides a $25,000 ex-
emption for office furni-
ture, fixtures, 'computers
and such, will help small
businesses.
Mobile home owners
also benefit. Storage
rooms, carports and at-
tached porches would
be tax exempt, up to
$25,000. Some farm
equipment would also
be- exempt. A great
many Floridians would
benefit, however mod-
estly, from this measure.

Amendment 1 wasn't
the legislature's first
choice for property tax
reform last fall. An even
less attractive proposal,
which would have
phased out Save Our
Homes in favor of a one-
time "superexemption,"
was struck down. by the
courts in September. In
order to keep their cam-
paign promises to Flori-
da homeowners, law-
makers scrambled to
come up with something
to replace it. Amend-
ment 1 was born scant
weeks later.
Is the current proposal
better than nothing? The
question merits no re-
sponse, in our view. We
should be asking instead
whether taxpayers de-
serve better and
whether our lawmakers
are capable, with a little
more effort, of provid-
ing it.
The answer to both of
these questions is Yes.
Your vote on Amend-
ment 1 should be No.

Cough and cold prod-
ucts are in many homes
this time of year. The
Florida/USVI Poison In-
formation Center Jack-
sonville (FPIC-JAX) cau-
tions parents about the
proper use of over-the-
counter cold medicines
after a recent government
report revealed that
youth between the ages
of 12 through 25 are mis-
using these medicines to
get high.
The federal Substance
Abuse and Mental
Health Services Adminis-
tration noted in a recent
report that these numbers
are comparable to use of
LSD and much greater'
than that for metham-
phetamine among this
age group. In addition,
cough and cold products
are easy to purchase for
teenagers and are readily
available in most house-
holds.
Statistics from FPIC-
JAX, which serves 42
counties in north Florida
and citizens of the US
Virgin Islands, revealed
that in 2007, 188 cases of
abuse of cough and cold
products were recorded.
Of this number, about
90% (177) of the cases
recorded were of persons
between the ages of 13-
23.
"The most commonly
abused cough and cold
product reported to our
center was Coricidin
HBP Cough and Cold,
the triple 'C' product,"
explained Dr. Dawn
Sollee, the assistant direc-
tor of FPIC-JAX. "The
abuse is more common in
14-17 year-olds.

Dr. Sollee added that
with the abuse of the cold
medicines, "There are
other factors to consider
as well. These products
often contain other
agents such as antihista-
mines, decongestants or
acetaminophen in addi-
tion to the dextromethor-
phan. Teenagers do not
realize the potential toxic-
ity from the multiple in-
gredients taken in large
quantities."
Dextromethorphan is
the cough suppressant
that is found in more
than 140 over-the-
counter cough and cold
medications, according to
the Substance Abuse and
Mental Health Services
Administration. Dex-
tromethorphan causes
disorientation, blurred
vision, slurred speech
and nausea when swal-
lowed in large doses.
Dr. Sollee also states
that the efficacy of these
products for children un-
der the age of two has
also been a concern.
"Over the past couple of
months, manufacturers
have been (voluntarily)
pulling several over-the-
counter cough and cold
products off the shelf due
to a lack of proven bene-
fit."
Dr. Sollee advises par-
ents to contact their
physician prior to admin-
istering these products to
children under the age of
two.

ing emergency, or if you

a potential poisoning im-

Tips for using cough

and cold products


The Florida/USVI Poi-
son Information Center -
Jacksonville, along with
the US Food and Drug
Administration, offer the
following tips when tak-
ing or giving medicines,
especially to children un-
der two years of age:
Read all the informa-
tion in the "Drug Facts"
box on the package label
so that you know the ac-
tive ingredients and the
warnings, and follow di-
rections before using
medicines.
Follow the product la-
bel and never take medi-
cines in higher does than
in recommended more
does not mean better.
Be careful when con-
verting doses; it is best to
use a measuring spoon or
a dosing cup instead of a
common kitchen spoon..
Do not give children
medicine that is pack-
aged and made for
adults. Use only products
marked for use in babies,
infants or children, some-
time referred to as "pedi-
atric" use.
Use extreme caution
when using cough and
cold products in children
less than two years of age
and discuss with your


child's health care
provider the proper use
of these medications.
If you or your child are
taking prescription medi-
cine, check with the phar-
macist or doctor before
taking over-the-counter
medicines.
Never keep medicines
in your purse; keep purs-
es out of reach and sight
of children.
To avoid giving medi-
cine twice, designate one
person to be responsible
for giving medicine.
Never refer to medi-
cine as candy.
Remember cough and
cold medicines only treat
the symptoms of the
common cold such as
runny nose, congestion,
fever and aches.. They do
not cure the common
cold. You will get better
with time.
If a condition worsens
or does not improve, es-
pecially in children, stop
using the product and
immediately take the
child to a health care
provider for evaluation.

cough and cold medi-
cines, log on to the USDA

'78 Trojan baseball team made magic


By Rick Burnham
In the years immediately
preceeding 1978, the
Hamilton County High
School baseball team man-
aged precious few wins.
And in the years immedi-
ately after, they managed
even less.
But 1978 would prove to
be different, a year when
experience and youth and
a veteran coaching staff
came together to form a
special bond, and make for
a special season.'
Thirty years ago, there
was magic in the air at
Hamilton County High.
Head coach John West-
moreland, along with as-
sistant Jim Hogan, built
their team around 14
above average players, but
no superstars. Seven of
those were seniors, and
would form the nucleus of
a formidable lineup, both
in the field and at the plate.
Wayne Sullivan and
Maceo Collier combined
for a 1-2 pitching combina-
tion as good as any in the
state. Sullivan, a right-han-
der with a lethal weapon
for a right arm, could very
nearly throw a baseball
through a brick wall. Col-
lier, a lefthander, coun-
tered with a variety of off-
speed pitches that kept op-
posing batters guessing,
His curveball was so good,
it was said at the time, that.
he could throw a baseball
around the comer of a
building.
Catcher Darrell Biggs
was flawless on both of-
fense and defense, gun-
ning down opposing base
stealers and providing a


thunderous bat. Biggs led
the '78 team with half a
dozen home runs.
Second baseman Warren
Adams contributed a
steady glove in the field,
and deceptive speed on the
base paths. Adams led the


Leutner, a graceful short-
stop with coke-bottle glass-
es and a strong right arm,
was flawless in the field.
Fleet-footed sophomore
David Altman provided
similar defensive prowess
in centerfield, and batted


six of its next seven, in-
cluding stunning victories
over Tallahassee, Leon and
Suwannee County. Those
wins defensive battles
that came down to the last
pitch gave Hamilton the
coveted Suwannee Classic


fashion. Victories followed
against Chiefland, Inter-
lachen and Keystone
Heights.
The Trojans would face
Keystone again to open the
district playoffs, and the
resulting extra-inning con-

Wayne Sullivan, Greg Leutner, Warren Adams, Chief Hogan. Front row: David Atiman, Darrell
Cook, Jon Mickler, Alan Young and Randy McCoy. (Jasper News Archives)


team with 26 stolen bases.
Cat-like reflexes and an
accurate throwing arm
made Ricky Bennett an
ideal third baseman. Ben-
nett's uncanny consistency
at the hot corner would
prove to be an important
factor in the team's suc-
cess.,
Rounding out the six se-
niors in the starting lineup
was pint-sized right fielder
Alan Young, a player
whose small stature was
misleading. Late in the sea-
son, Young would play a
major role as big as any on
the team.
A trio of underclassmen
rounded out the starting
lineup. Junior Greg Clyde


leadoff much of the year.
Bright-eyed sophomore
Ricky Burnham played
left, and bore a striking re-
semblance to cartoon char-
acter Elmer Fudd (and
heard about it every day).
Five solid reserves
added important bench
strength for the Trojans in
1978. Senior Sonny Russel-
burg, along with junior
Randy McCoy, sophomore
Kevin Murphy, and fresh-
man Tommy Cook and Jon
Mickler rounded out the
team.
Hamilton stumbled out
of the gate, losing its home
opener to North Florida
Christian. After that, how-
ever,, the team would win


Title.
Westmoreland sensed
that overconfidence might
haunt the team down the
stretch, and his instincts
were right on the mark.
Only days after drubbing
Mayo 22-0, the team strug-
gled to beat an inferior
Cross City team. West-
moreland proceeded to de-
liver a motivational
speech that would carry
the team through the rest
of the season.
The Trojans 'beat PK
Younge in both games of a
doubleheader, and trav-
eled to Madison, where
they knocked off the Cow-
boys, who were then called
the Cougars, in convincing


Biggs, Ricky Burnham, Tommy

test was as good as any
game ever played in
Jasper. The Trojans
jumped to an early advan-
tage, but the visitors roared
back with three runs in the
bottom of the seventh in-
ning to tie the game. After
Keystone took a one-run
lead in the 12th inning,
Hamilton was down to its
final out, and an apparent
end to a dream season. But
Young delivered a dutch
hit to right field to tie the,
game and keep the Tro-
jans' hopes alive. He
would later tell teammates
that he closed his eyes and
swung. Hamilton added
another run in the 13th on
4 bases-loaded walk by


McCoy to win the game 7-
6. The next day, they dis-
mantled an overmatched
Interlachen squad to win
the district title.
The Trojans then
knocked off West Nassau
to win the state regional ti-
tle, and breezed past New-
berry for the sectional
championship.
It was off to the state
championship for the 17-5
Trojans, and they left town
for Sumter County on a
bus piloted by legendary
head football coach Coy
Whitener.
But a different sort of
team awaited the Trojans
in the state tournament,
played that year in Sumter
County. Fort Pierce John
Carroll, a Catholic school
just outside of Titusville,
featured a number of col-
lege-bound players, in-
cluding a tall, left-handed
pitcher with a blazing fast-
ball. The Trojans had no
answer for the team from
the south, -falling 13-1.
Stunned and silent, the
team gathered outside
their dugout for a final
speech from Westmore-
land.'
In retrospect, the '78 Tro-
jans were the pure epitome
of a team: no superstars,
but 14 young men playing
together as one. They be-
gan their season with a
narrow loss to NFC, and
ended it with a humbling
defeat at the hands of a su-
perior Fort Pierce squad.
But in between during a
two-month period 30 years
ago there was magic in
the air in Hamilton Coun-
ty.

play of the Trojans say-
ing, "It's hard for me to
be too disappointed in


this loss because I am so

Friday night.
The crowd was big and
it was senior night for the
Madison County High
School Cowboys. Hamil-
ton knew it was going to
be a tough one. However,


Hamilton came ready to
play.
After Madison scored
on a jumper to start the
game, the Trojans went
on a 10-0 run. Jones
scored on a drive and as-
sist by Pollock. After
Jones' 2 free throws, Pol-
lock blocked a shot. The
ball was rebounded by

wing. On the ensuing in-
bounds pass, Jones stole
the ball and made a fin-


ger roll. Hamilton led 10-

selves, cutting the Trojan
lead to 2. Jones ended the
run with a three-pointer
from the wing giving
Hamilton a 5-point lead.

pointer that was sand-
wiched between two

highlighted by three-
pointers from Jones and
Cooks. The Trojans led

gave Hamilton its biggest
lead of the game, 36-19.

boys scored on
their next pos-
session but
Webb came
right back with
a steal and
layup.. Webb
would then
make a free
throw to give Hamilton
an 18-point lead.
Unfortunately, the
spread wouldn't stay
there for long as Madison
scored the games' next 4
points. At the end of the
half, Johnson scored the
last point on a free throw.

halftime.

quarter.
The two teams ex-
changed baskets for the
rest of the quarter until
Madison made a three-
pointer to end the quar-
ter with Hamilton lead-
ing 53-38.
The Cowboys began
the last quarter of play
strong,, outscoring the
Trojans 7-2 and cutting
the HCHS lead to 10 with
5 minutes to play.
The Cowboy run was
put to an end with a huge
baseline jumper by Mc-
Clain. Madison came
right back; however, to
cut the lead back to 10
points. This time, Jones
found Pollock under-
neath the basket on an in-
bounds play to give
Hamilton a 59-47 lead
with 3 minutes left in the
game.
Things looked like they
were getting tough for
the Trojans as three dif-
ferent players for Hamil-
ton fouled out in the next
30 seconds, including
starters Pollock and Mc-
Clain.
Hamilton withstood
the challenge, however,
on the heels of tough de-
fense and pulled -away
for a convincing 69-53
victory.
The Trojans had 2 play-
ers scoring in double fig-
ures. Jones led the team
with 24 points. Cooks
also scored 13. Other
Trojan scorers included
McClain (9), Pollock (7),

McClain led HCHS in
rebounds with 10 for the
night. Jones had 7 re-
bounds and Lanier had 5.
For the second night in
a row, the Trojans had a
total of 20 assists. Webb
and Josh Jones led the
team with 4 assists for
the game. Pollock and
Cooks each pitched in
with 3 dimes. .
On a night that saw
Hamilton make 16 steals,

THRDY JAUR 2.20THJAPRNW;JprFPGE3


By Paula G. Williams
HCHS Middle Grades
Guidance Counselor
Alonza Solomon, 1973
Hamilton High graduate,
was the guest speaker for
the Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Commemorative
assembly on Jan. 18. Mr.
Solomon, graduate of
Florida A&M University
and Central Michigan
University, is a retired Lt.
Colonial of the United
States Army and is work-
ing on a second career as a
LC Communications Pro-;
ject Manager at Ft.
McPherson in Atlanta,
Ga.
ROTC's color guard
took charge of opening
both assembly programs
with Zach Deas and Nash
Henderson leading the
pledge to the flag. Princi-
pal Gene Starr warmly
welcomed both groups.
Mrs. Phyllis Harris beau-
tifully presented the solo,
"Let There Be Peace on
Earth." Former Central
Hamilton Elementary
teacher, Bernard Perry,
was on hand to share with
the audience as he intro-
duced the speaker who
happens to be his brother
in the college fraternity,
Omega Psi Phi.
Mr. Solomon, a proud
father of four children


(three are currently Flori-
da A&M University full-
time students) never for-
gets his roots and espe-
cially the teachings and
motivational efforts of his
parents and teachers. He
shared the importance of
becoming a dreamer or a
visionary.
"Dr. King believed
proper planning prevents
poor performance and he
believed in education, be-
ing an academic scholar
himself." Mr. Solomon
shared the runner/walker
analogy with the students
and encouraged them to
be runners. Runners are
prepared workers, re-
spectful students and goal
oriented.
Jessie Bristol and Mavis
Troy used their melodi-
ous voices to sing the
famed, "Lean on Me."
The audience was very
moved by their perfor-
mance. Tammy Law and I
thanked the program and
community participants
for celebrating history
with the students and
staff at Hamilton High.
Again, we appreciate
those who take time from
their busy schedules and
jobs and make it their re-
sponsibility to travel to
Hamilton County to share
with our voun nPeople. It


was great seeing so many
retirees, City Hall staff
and others from the com-
munity. It is so important
that our children know
that we have graduates
who took education seri-
ously right here in our
public schools and they
are doing some awesome
things in our country and
in our world. Our stu-
dents today can and will
excel too.
The high school clinic
staff coordinated a Fit for
Life program for eighth
grade students through
the Physical Education
Department. The presen-
ter, Kimberly Owens from
Suwannee River Area
Health Education Center
(AHEC), did a great job.
She talked about the caus-
es of bone weakness and
why this important to the
body.
"Alcohol, tobacco and
eating disorders reduce
bone mass and caffeine
and sodas cause calcium
loss, which all result in
bone weakness. What we
put into our bodies now
will definitely impact us
later." AHEC promotes
health and wellness in our
area and this is one of the
programs they offer high
school students. They
have several they provide
for elementary students
as well. A special thanks
to nurse Martha Fultz for
planning this event for
eighth graders.
Please remind the stu-
dents that physical educa-
tion is an important part


of their day. They need to
participate in activities
and dress out in the ap-
propriate clothing and the
proper colors: red, black,
gray or white, so that
their grades will not be af-
fected.
Our students were for-
tunate to have Shelly
Donahue, a national train-
er from Denver, Col.,
share with them this week
on the topic, "Pure Love
Waits." Ms. Donahue
shared some very rele-
vant material with the
study body and we trust
they will keep her mes-
sage on their minds.
Becky Deas coordinated
this informative assem-
bly.
The tutoring session is
going very well and you
will read more about this
later.
FCAT Writing is com-
ing soon Feb. 12 through
Feb. 14.
The January character
word of the month is re-
sponsibility. Parents, help
your child share about re-
sponsible acts he/she per-
forms daily.
"If you think the price
of education is high try
ignorance."

tance to you or don't hesi-

When I was a kinder-
garten teacher back when
Moby Dick was a min-
now and later as an ele-
mentary principal for
close to twenty years, the
month of January was a
month when bulletin
boards made by teachers
would feature snow peo-
ple and winter scenes fea-
turing snow flakes. Now,
it is unusual for one to see
wintry scenes in the state
of Florida, but, very often,
we feel the "sting" of old
man winter, as we did
last weekend and on
Monday.
John R. "Bobby"
Bullard, 69, prominent re-
tired timber businessman
and White Springs native
passed away on Sunday,
Jan. 20, at his home north
of White Springi follow-
ing a brief illness. Mr.
Bullard is survived by his
wife of 47 years, Avis
Christie Bullard, one
daughter, Paige Bullard
Allbritton, Jasper, Ind.,
and one son, Rhett
Bullard, White Springs.
One grand-daughter, De-
laney Allbritton, also sur-
vives. Mr. Bullard was the
son of the late JH "Bud"
and Margaret Joyner
Bullard, White Springs.

Have you been watching
Miss America: Reality
Check on TLC? If not, you
have missed a chance to
see a Hamilton County
young lady in person,
Miss Florida Kylie
Williams. She has been
presented favorably in
much of the programs.
Last Friday we saw her be-
ing named in the top three
by that panel.
Saturday, Jan. 26, will be
the crowning of Miss
America. We will be look-
ing for our local young
lady's appearance, The
pageant w.ll bpe live on
TLC at 8 pft. We get this
on Channel 32 on cable; do
not know on satellite.
Search the Jasper News for
further information.
Other than members of
Kylie's family, we know
that Margaret and Jerry
Lewis and their family
members are flying out for
the pageant and we will be
hearing more about it. Our
best wishes go to Kylie.
She has already been rep-
resenting us well. Good
luck!

Men's Brotherhood will be
at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan.
24 (that's this week) at the


White Springs. Reverend
Lowell O'Steen, former
pastor of the First Baptist
Church of White Springs,
served as officiate.
Bobby was a friendly,
outgoing man who never
met a stranger. He loved
hunting, socializing with
his friends, and, in his
younger years, racing
stock cars. He loved his
family and his communi-
ty. We shall miss him
very much. Avis, Paige,
Rhett, and all the family
are in our prayers. The
White Springs communi-
ty extends sincere, heart-
felt sympathy and love.
Our sympathy is ex-
tended to the families .of
Greg Stormant and Mrs.
Vivian Manning, both of
Jasper. The families have
the prayers of the White
Springs community.
Greg Stormant's par-
ents, "Diamond Joe" and
Evelyn Stormant are both
descended from old south
county families, the Stor-
mants and the Bryans. I
remember when the en-
tire family lived on tim-
ber property and in a tim-
ber company house at
Purvis Still, presently the
location of the original
Suwannee River Mine for
Occidental, now PCS.
Greg was a wonderful
mechanic and worked on
my automobiles many


times through the years.
He was friendly, kind,
and I thought a lot of him.
I can remember when
Mrs. Manning and her
late husband were in the
restaurant business in
Jasper. I ate at her restau-
rant on a number of occa-
sions when I went with
Daddy and Uncle Warren
to sell tobacco at Chan-
dler's Warehouse in
Jasper. Good memories of
good people.
Well, the elections are
coming up on Jan. 29; cast
your ballot if you haven't
cast it already. The only
thing I can tell my readers
is that I intend to vote
against Amendment 1 for
many reasons, but the pri-
mary reason is that I think
it will severely affect the
governmental services
that can be offered in rur-
al communities. I am also
voting against it because
the Governor is for it and,
thus far, he hasn't done a

owners who keep their
property in town like a
"Sanford and Son" junk-
yard without calling
names. The first piece of
property is a two-storied
blue house right on US 41
South next to the Suwan-
nee Hardware Store. The
way the place looks, a fire
would be a blessing.
The second piece of
property is across from
Stormant's Grocery, the
site of the old Lovett's
Garage. The lot is junky
looking and should be
cleaned and tidied thor-
oughly. The third piece of
property is on the corner
of Mill Street north and
Adams Memorial Drive -
trash piles, junked cars,
trash "strung from a to iz-
zum" pathetic.
I know the city is limit-
ed in what they can do
about these situations,
but these property own-
ers ought to win the doo
doo award for having
such trashy looking prop-
erties and that is all I am
going to say about that.
The end. For all the many
property owners who
keep their residences in
good shape God bless
you, and we appreciate
you.
Have a good week,
Hamilton County
I love you.

cardboard. All the money goes to help the
homeless animals.
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important thing
people can do to help their pets is to get,
them spayed or neutered. This means the

Cardio a Key to a Successful Exercise Regimen


When it comes time to lose weight, many people look to the
nearby fitness center to help them shed those extra pounds.
When entering a gym for the first time, newcomers are often
overwhelmed by the buzz of activity and the clanking of
weights coupled with the host of machines they seem to know
nothing about.
While an initial foray into the gym can be intimidating, it's
important to keep in mind that one of the best ways to lose
weight is'something you've been doing almost since the day
you were born. Since the moment you took your first step,
you've been doing cardio, or cardiovascular exercise. More
widely referred to as aerobic exercise, cardio has a number of
benefits, not the least of which is losing weight.
Cardio strengthens bones. Osteoporosis is a bone disease
in which the bones become brittle and fragile due to tissue loss.
This tissue loss can be the result of age or deficiencies in
calcium or vitamin D. A workout that includes jogging or even
fast walking can reduce the risk of osteoporosis because, as the
National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) points out, these
weight-bearing activities strengthen the skeletal system. NOF
also notes that any exercise in which feet or legs are bearing
the weight, including dancing and climbing, are effective
cardio exercises.
Cardio reduces body fat. Including cardio in your regular
exercise routine helps to increase lean body tissue while
reducing fat. If the goal of your weight loss is to look better,
then including cardio in your regular routine is a great way to
achieve this. While this might sound simple, the more calories
you burn, the more pounds you'll lose, and cardio has proven
to be a great way to burn calories.
Cardio can reduce blood pressure. Many people choose to
lose weight not because of a New Year's resolution, but
because their doctor (or their body) has told them they need to
shed weight to survive. For those with high blood pressure,


cardio has proven an effective way to lower blood pressure. A
2002 study at Tulane University found that aerobic, or
cardiovascular, exercise lowered blood pressure in all groups of
people, whether they had pre-existing conditions or had normal
blood pressure.
Cardio can help relieve the pain of arthritis. A
cardiovascular program that includes water exercise can be
especially valuable to arthritis sufferers. Such exercise can help
keep the joints moving while strengthening the muscles around
the joints. In addition, cardiovascular exercise increases energy
levels, which helps arthritis sufferers better handle some the daily
tasks that have become difficult as a result of the arthritis.
