completes training


Pvt. Melissa Harvey (Photo Submitted)


Private Melissa Har-
vey, daughter of Kathy
and James Aldridge, re-
cently completed basic
training at Marine Corps
Recruit Depot, Parris Is-
land, S. Car. She success-
fully completed 12 weeks
of training designed to
challenge new Marine re-
cruits both physically
mentally.
Pvt. Harvey and her
fellow recruits began
their training each day at
5 a.m., by running three
miles and performing cal-
isthenics. In addition to
the physical conditioning
program, they spent nu-
merous hours in class-
room and field assigh-
ments, which included
learning first aid, uniform
regulations, combat wa-


ter survival, marksman-
ship, hand-to-hand com-
bat and assorted weapons
training. They performed
close order drill and op-
erated as a small infantry
unit during field training.
Pvt. Harvey also re-
ceived instructions on the
Marine Corps' core val-
ues honor, courage and
commitment, and what
the words mean in guid-
ing personal and profes-
sional conduct. Pvt. Har-
vey and her fellow, re-
cruits ended the training
phase with the Crucible, a
54-hour team effort and
problem solving evolu-
tion. After graduation
from Parris Island, she
will be stationed at Camp
Geiger for four weeks of
combat training.


Missionaries to speak at New
Hope Baptist, Burnham Christian


Henry and Frances Zit-
trower, missionaries to
Roatan, will speak at two
Local churches on Sunday,
Feb. 17. They will be at
New Hope Baptist
Church during the 11 a.m.
service and at Burnham
Christian Church during
the evening service.
Henry Zittrower was
born and lived in Hamil-
ton County with his par-
ents and siblings before
moving to Jacksonville.
After retiring from corpo-
rate America, he and his
wife obeyed a call from
the Lord. They sold


everything and moved to
Roatan, an island off the
coast of Honduras, to in-
stall water systems into
the natives' homes.
Zittrower's organiza-
tion, Living Water 4
Roatan, works to provide
the living water of salva-
tion to the people as they
also work to provide
them with pure drinking
water, free of parasites.
The Zittrowers ask for
prayer for the direction of
their team and that the
hearts of the people will
be open to the good news
of the gospel.

Jasper's caring community


by Dorothy Merrit
One day you might see a
group of people walking
slowly down the street
with eyes darting at the
cars, people and things,
their faces alight like curi-
ous children, some with
clown-like smiles absorb-
ing all the noises and
sights surrounding them.
They walk down into a
business looking at every-
thing in sight, and when
someone smiles or says
hello they will shout a hel-
lo back, often accompanied
by a wave and smiling like
a Cheshire cat because
they are so delighted in be-
ing acknowledged as a


person.
I am a guardian and sis-
ter to a mentally disabled
individual and recently re-
located to the town of
Jasper and discovered
Comprehensive Commu-
nity Services Inc. (CCS) lo-
cated at 1133 US 41 NW,
Suite 4, Jasper.
Jasper has the rare quali-
ty of a town that is caring,
kind and supportive of all
community functions for
the youth, disable persons
and the seniors. The ladies
at CCS have the patience
and commitment to work
with the disabled. This is
not just a job, they truly
care about the consumers


and are dedicated to the
training and advocacy for
them. These special
women, Denise Lee, Patsy
Morgan and Nancy Pars-
ley, provide these special
people undaunting sup-
port, social activities, liv-
ing skills and daily goals. I
sincerely appreciate their
continued efforts and feel
so reassured that my
brother is being cared for
safely, lovingly and profes-
sionally.
These disabled individu-
als can be contributors to
the community by provid-
ing work to businesses in
the form of packaging,
sorting, mailing, etc. Many


of these individuals are not
able to participate in Spe-
cial Olympics due to age or
health problems but they
still contribute to this com-
munity as participants in
daily life. They take great
pride in their work and it
gives them a feeling of ac-
complishment and belong-
ing to the community.
If the good sponsors of
Comprehensive Commu-
nity Services or any othet
businesses in surrounding
communities can provide
work for our special peo-
ple, please contact Bobbie
Lake, Executive Director at
the Live Oak facility at 386-
362-7143.


Consumer awareness about change to digital TV increases:


Consumer awareness
of the federally-mandat-
ed transition to digital
television (DTV) has
grown substantially
over the past year,
reaching 79 percent ac-
cording to a survey com-
missioned by the Na-
tional Association of
Broadcasters (NAB) in
January. Overall, con-
sumer awareness has


more than doubled since
January 2007.
More than 34 million
households that rely on
over-the-air television
signals will be affected
by the transition to digi-
,tal television, which will
be completed on Feb. 17,
2009, when all full-pow-
er television stations
must turn off their ana-
log signals and begin


broadcasting exclusively
in the digital format.
Broadcast networks
and nearly 1,500 televi-
sion stations nationwide
are participating in the
comprehensive con-
sumer education cam-
paign, which includes a
rich variety of on-air, on-
line and grassroots ini-
tiatives. During the next
phase of the consumer


education campaign,
broadcasters will focus
on helping consumers
learn more about the
converter box coupon
program and other op7
tions they have to up-
grade to digital through
on-air advertisements, a
30-minute educational
television program
about DTV, and several
other initiatives.

ests of all of our students.
A flurry of activities have
taken place in the last
week, including the

keyboard festivals


The North Central
Florida Yamaha Clavino-
va Keyboard Festival will
showcase hundreds of
area music students at its
annual event at the Music
Center in Live Oak on Sat-
urday, Feb. 16, and in
Lake City on Saturday,
Feb. 23. Students will
have the opportunity to
perform on the newest
editions of Yamaha's digi-
tal piano, the Yamaha
Clavinova. The event is
free to participants as well
as members of the com-
munity.
The Clavinova is a line
of digital pianos created
by the Yamaha Corpora-
tion, similar in styling to
an acoustic piano, but
with many features com-
mon to other digital pi-
anos. In addition to the
ability to save and load
songs, the Clavinova fea-


tures the availability of
hundreds of different
voices. Some recent mod-
els offer the ability to be
connected to a computer
via USB or wireless net-
work. The Clavinova,
which was created for the
student as well as the pro-
fessional musician, is fun
and easy to work with.
The Festival gives stu-
dents an opportunity to
perform their favorite
songs with accompani-
ment and creativity with
help from the Yamaha
Clavinova. All partici-
pants of the Clavinova
Festival will be entered
into a free, random draw-
ing for their chance to win
a Yamaha Clavinova
($2,000 value).

Arrest made in

counterfeit check case

ty.
According to authori-
ties, Conti is suspected of
stealing checks from local
businesses' mailboxes in
Suwannee County and
duplicating the account
numbers and routing
numbers on checks he
created. Shaw said Conti
is suspected of writing the
fraudulent checks to him-
self and cashing them at
area convenience stores.
The arrest of Conti led
to the discovery of the
identity of two other sus-
pects allegedly working
with Conti. Charges have
not been filed yet but the
two are in the Columbia
County Jail on unrelated
charges.
Conti's operation was
elaborate, according to of-
ficials. A computer and
computer software to
make and print checks
were found at the Gum
Swamp Road residence
where Conti was arrested,
records indicate. Police
say several stolen checks
were found at the resi-
dence, and a counterfeit
check for more than $700
made out to Conti were


found on him at the time
of the arrest.
Officials say counterfeit
check cashers work in
cells, with elaborate sys-
tems involving computers
and software to print
fraudulent checks.
"Printers" print the
checks, and "passers" take
the checks to stores and
cash them. The passers

Trojan baseball begins season


Submitted
The Hamilton County
High School (HCHS) Tro-
jan baseball team began
the 2008 season by host-
ing the Fred Mickler Pre-
season Classic in Jasper
on Tuesday, Feb. 5, and
Thursday, Feb. 7. Hamil-
ton County welcomed
Aucilla Christian, Melody
Christian and Lafayette
High School to the Fred
Mickler Field to partici-
pate in the tournament.
The tournament began
with Melody Christian
posting a 17-7 win in 5 in-
nings over Aucilla Christ-
ian on Tuesday afternoon.
The Trojans took the field
in the nightcap and de-


feated Lafayette High 11-
10 in 9 innings.
Early in the game, the
Hornets took advantage
of some defensive mis-
cues by the Trojan de-
fense and held a 7-1 lead
after 4 innings. The Tro-
jans fought back and
closed the gap to 7-6 in
the 5th inning only to al-
low Lafayette to increase
their lead to 10-6 in the
6th inning. In the bottom
of the 7th inning, the Tro-
jans fought back and tied
the game 10-10. The teams
swapped scoreless at-bats
in the 8th inning and ju-
nior Tyler Morgan held
the Hornets scoreless in
the top of the 9th inning.


Morgan then led off the
bottom of the 9th inning
with a double. Josh Mc-
Coy, pinch running for
Morgan, came around to
score the winning run
when catcher Joel Zamora
reached first base on an
error.
Senior Craig Newsome
and junior Adam Zamora
each pitched 4 innings for
the Trojans and Morgan
pitched the scoreless 9th.
Newsome and Zamora
each finished with 7
strikeouts while only
walking 1 each. Freshman
Joel Zamora had 2 RBIs
and senior Hector Zamo-
ra scored 3 runs for the
Trojans.


On Thursday, Lafayette
defeated Aucilla Christian
24-9 to begin the action
and HCHS came from be-
hind again to defeat
Melody Christian 3-2 to
close out the tournament.
Thursday night's game
between HCHS and
Melody Christian turned
out to be a pitcher's duel.
Senior Hector Zamora
started on the mound for
the Trojans and pitched 5
strong innings before be-
ing relieved by freshman
Eric Zamora, who picked
up the win. Morgan led
the Trojans at the plate,
going 2 for 3 with an RBI.
Chris Aldridge, pinch
running for Morgan,


scored the winning run
for HCHS when junior
Rafael Balleza reached
first base on an error in
the bottom of the 7th in-
ning.
HCHS head coach Ryan
Mitchell was proud of his
team after the preseason.
"Our kids showed a lot of
heart in coming from be-
hind both nights to win. It
would have been very
easy for them to give up,
but they decided to fight
back and we came out on
top. We faced a very good
pitcher in John Gay from
Melody Christian on
Thursday night. He
pitched an outstanding
game. Although we did-


n't hit the ball well, we
were able to find ways to
win. Our senior leaders
did an excellent job of
making sure that we con-
tinued to play hard de-
spite falling behind. I real-
ly appreciate our fans
showing up to support
the players. We had great
crowds for both nights of
the tournament. Hopeful-
ly, we can continue to
play well and keep win-
ning ball games."
The Trojans traveled to
Suwannee High School on
Tuesday, Feb. 12, to begin
the regular season. They
will face Aucilla Christian
at home on Friday, Feb.
15, at 5 p.m.

Tyler Crowder caught
an eight-pound catfish in
a private pond in White
Springs. This was Tyler's
first time fishing and
needless to say he is very
excited about fishing now
and asks to go everyday.
"The next day I was
fishing with my step-
brothers, Trent and
Trevor Sistrunk, at the
same pond where I
caught my catfish," Tyler


said. "I had the last worm
in the can when my step-
dad had to go get more
worms. I had a little nib-
ble on my line, then my
cork went under, then I
reeled in with all my
strength and I caught a
nice brim. I'm gone fishing'
now."

Hamilton hunter bags first buck


by Trevor Sistrunk
This great eight-point
buck was killed on Nov. 14,
2007, while I was hunting
on private property in
Hamilton County with my
dad, Derrill Sistruck. I
bagged my first deer of my
life.
My dad and I had been
working in his hay field all
day long when I told him its
"huntin' time." We stopped
by a store on the way to our
hunting spot and picked up
some sunflower seeds and
a Sprite. We got settled in
our hunting spot around 5
p.m. I sat on a log with my
dad next to me while eating
my sunflower seeds and
drinking my Sprite.
When I saw a big buck
walking in the field, I no-
ticed how the sun was
gleaming off his horns. My
eyes got big and I motioned
to my dad with my hands
up around my head so he
would know I was about to
shoot at a buck.
I quietly aimed my dad's
Browning 30-06 rifle and I


focused the cross hairs on
the buck's neck area. The
buck fell dead in his tracks
with my first shot
My dad and I took off
running to the buck. When
we got to him, that's when I
realized I had bagged my
first buck. My first buck
turned out to be this nice
eight-point with a seven-
teen-inch spread.
Well, folks, I really got
huntifig fever after that kill,
so three days later my dad
put me in a tree stand at a
different hunting spot But
before he dropped me off at
the stand, I told him I had to
pick up some sunflower
seeds and a Sprite for good
luck. And so I did have
good luck; I killed a three-
point that day with my .243
that I got for Christmas.
Oh, did I mention that
my name is Trevor Sistrunk
and I'm 11 years old? This
has turned out to be one
heck of a hunting season.
Trevor is the son of Shel-
ley Head and Darrill
Sistrunk


CCA Warriors defense overcomes GCA Lions


By Tom Parks
On a night where the ball
seemed bigger than the
basket, Corinth Christian
Academy (CCA) men's
and women's basketball
teams proved once again
that defense wins games.
Both teams defeated the
Grace Christian Academy
(GCA) Lions at Lee Gym
on Friday night.
The women's team
played first, and despite


not shooting well, led 12-1
at the end of the first quar-
ter. Kayla Rye blocked a
shot early in the second
quarter, which ignited a 17-
2 run for the Warriors. The
first half ended 30-5, and
the Grace Lions never
threatened in the second
half, due to the tenacious
defense that the Warriors
have shown all season.
The Warriors were led
once again by Tiffany


Phillips, who recorded her
third straight double-dou-
ble, scoring 18 points while
hauling in 14 rebounds.
Andrea Abbott scored 12
points and dished out 4 as-
sists to go with 4 steals.
Sharon Bontrager and Rye
had 6 points each, while se-
nior Marti Bray grabbed 12
rebounds to go with 4
points.
The men's game was a
dogfight from the start,


with neither team able to
maintain a lead. A tough
Grace Lion zone defense
made it difficult for the
Warriors to use their inside
game, and the Warriors
couldn't get a shot to drop.
Despite shooting only 31%
from the field in the first
half, CCA led 25-19 at the
break.
That lead evaporated in
the second half as both
teams traded basket after


basket. With four seconds
left in regulation, Aaron
Goyette sank a free throw
to tie the game. Goyette
then saved the game for
CCA when he blocked a
layup at the buzzer to send
the game to overtime.
The overtime period was
just as hard fought but the
Warriors never quit. The
buzzer sounded with CCA
in possession of the ball,
the lead, and the game, 53-


51.
CCA was led by Goyette
with 25 points, 14 re-
bounds and 8 assists, while
senior Aaron Beck scored
12 points to go with 4
steals.
Mike Rye, Jeff Taylor
and Jared Nichols each had
4 points, while Taylor and
Nichols pulled down 9 and
11 boards respectively.
CCA improved their
records to 3-0.

IRS warning about e-mail, phone scams


THURSDAY, February 14, 2008


The Internal Revenue
Service is warning tax-
payers to beware of sev-
eral e-mail and tele-
phone scams that use the
IRS name as a lure.
The goal of the scams
is to trick people into re-
vealing personal and fi-
nancial information,
such as Social Security,
bank account or credit
card numbers, which the
scammers can use to
commit identity theft.
Identity thieves can
empty the victim's fi-
nancial accounts, run up
charges on the victim's
existing credit cards, ap-
ply for new loans, credit
cards, services or bene-
fits in the victim's name,
file fraudulent tax re-
turns or even commit
crimes. Most of these
fraudulent activities can
be committed electroni-
cally from a remote loca-
tion, including overseas,
which allows scamsters
to act quickly and cover
their tracks before the
victim becomes aware of
the theft.
People whose identi-
ties have been stolen can
spend months or years -
and their hard-earned
money cleaning up the
mess thieves have made
of their reputations and
credit records. In the
meantime, victims may
lose job opportunities,
may be refused loans,
education, housing or
cars, or even get arrested
for crimes they didn't
commit.
The most recent scams
brought to IRS attention
are described below.
Rebate Phone Call A
consumer will receive a
phone call from some-
one identifying himself
as an IRS employee, who
tells the targeted victim
that he. is eligible for a
sizable rebate for filing
his taxes early. The
caller then states that he
needs the target's bank
account information for
the direct deposit of the
rebate. If the target re-
fuses, he is told that he
cannot receive the re-
bate.
The IRS does not pro-
vide advance payments


to taxpayers or force tax-
payers to use direct de-
posit.
Paper Check Phone
Call A caller claims to
be an IRS employee who
is calling because the
IRS sent a check to the
individual being called.
The caller states that be-
cause the check has not
been cashed, the IRS
wants to verify the indi-
vidual's bank account
number. The caller may
have a foreign accent.
The IRS leaves it up to
the individual to choose
to cash or not cash a pa-
per check. The IRS does
not ask for bank account
or similar information
except when taxpayers
indicate on their tax re-
turn that they are opting
for the direct electronic
deposit of their refund.
It is the individual's re-
sponsibility to provide
the IRS with the correct
bank routing and ac-
count numbers on the
tax return; the IRS does
not contact taxpayers to
verify the information.
Refund e-Mail A re-
fund-related e-mail that
falsely claims to come
from the IRS, tells the re-
cipient that he or she is
eligible for a tax refund
for a specific amount,
and instructs the recipi-
ent to click on a link in
the e-mail to access a re-
fund claim form. The
form asks the recipient
to enter personal infor-
mation that the scam-
sters can then use to ac-
cess the e-mail recipi-
ent's bank or credit card
account.
The current version of
the refund scam in-
cludes two paragraphs
that appear to be direct-
ed toward tax-exempt
organizations that dis-
tribute funds to other or-
ganizations or individu-
als. The e-mail contains
the name and supposed
signature of the Director
of the IRS's Exempt Or-
ganizations business di-
vision.
Audit e-Mail Another
new scam e-mail notifies
the recipient that his or
her tax return will be au-
dited. Unusual for a


scam e-mail, it may con-
tain a salutation in the
body addressed to the
specific recipient by
name. This e-mail in-
structs the recipient to
click on links to com-
plete forms with person-
al and account informa-
tion, which the scam-'
mers will use to commit
identity theft.
Changes to Tax Law e-
Mail This bogus e-mail
is addressed to business-
es, accountants and trea-
sury managers. It in-
structs them to down-
load information on tax
law changes by clicking
on a series of links to
publications on busi-
nesses, estate taxes, ex-
cise taxes, exempt orga-
nizations and IRAs and
other retirement plans.
The IRS believes that
clicking on a link down-
loads malware onto the
recipient's computer.
Malware is malicious
code that can take over
the victim's computer
hard drive, giving some-
one remote access to the
computer, or it could
look for passwords and
other information and
send them to the scam-
mers. There are other
types of malware, as
well.
These e-mails are pho-
ny. The IRS does not
send unsolicited e-mail
about tax account mat-
ters to individual, busi-
ness, tax-exempt or oth-
er taxpayers. All IRS.gov
Web page addresses be-
gin with
http://www.irs.gov/.
What to Do Anyone
wishing to access the IRS
Web site should initiate
contact by typing the
IRS.gov address into
their Internet address
window, rather than
clicking on a link in an e-
mail or opening an at-
tachment.
Those who have re-
ceived a questionable e-
mail claiming to come
from the IRS may for-
ward it to
phishing@irs.gov to help
the IRS track the suspi-
cious e-mail to its ori-
gins and shut down the
scam. Those who have

Fishing deep water in winter


By Jay Yelas
Fishing in deep water is
still probably the most
misunderstood type of
fishing that bass anglers
have to deal with on a
regular basis. Deep water
can be productive almost
any time of year that the
bass aren't on the beds,
but during the winter is
when it can be especially
effective.
"Deep," of course, can
be in the eye of the be-
holder. But to me, any-
thing deeper than 10 feet
can be considered deep.
When searching for
places to focus your fish-
ing efforts in deep water,
remember the difference
between cover and struc-
ture. Cover is some phys-
ical object separate from
the actual bottom con-
tour. Structure is the actu-
al bottom contour. These
structure elements serve
as a kind of thoroughfare
for the bass to travel from
one place to another in
search of food and opti-
mum water conditions.
The presence of cover on
some form of structure is
what you should be look-
ing for.
Most of the short cuts to
finding deep-water struc-
ture occur long before
you get to the body of wa-
ter. Start with a contoured
lake map and identify all
of the depth changes and
bottom features, marking
them with different col-.
ored pens or markers.
Once these areas are iden-
tified, you can begin find-
ing bass by understand-
ing that their entire life
cycle revolves around
two core areas: their
spawning areas (flats)
and their wintering areas


(deep water vertical break
areas). The structure
breaks that connect these
two areas are their migra-
tion highways. For the
most part, the bass winter
in the deepest water/ver-
tical break areas available,
usually in the main lake.
When I arrive at the
lake and get into the areas
that I want to fish, I will
fast idle the area in a zig-
zag pattern, keeping a
constant eye on my elec-
tronics. I will look for any
irregularity of signs of ac-
tivity such as cover on the
bottom or pods of bait
that appear as black
clouds. I keep zig-zagging
up and down the poten-
tial area until I find some-
thing that I like. When I
do, I will throw a marker
buoy on the area and con-
tinue to circle it to estab-
lish my boundaries. If I
see something else or find
a definite end to some-
thing I will drop a second
buoy.
Using a search-type of
bait, I begin to fan cast the
entire area. I try to estab-
lish contact with the bot-
tom or with cover or near
bait. It's important that as
you catch fish, you keep
mental or written notes of
the area you are in. Take
note of the water depth at
which you are fishing,
water temperature, water
clarity, wind anything
that might help you in the
future. Also look around
and take visual note of
landmarks so that you can
more easily find your
newly discovered honey
hole the next time you hit
the water.
There are also some
general guidelines for
fishing deep-water struc-


ture. During periods of
active feeding, such as
low light, rain, or wind,
the fish generally move
shallower and hold looser
to cover. During periods
of high pressure or under
adverse conditions the
bass tend to be a little
deeper and tighter to cov-
er.
Structure with hard
type cover on it is better
in the spring and late fall
(shell /rock); structure
with soft type cover and
areas where debris has
been deposited by the
current are better in the
summer. Structure areas
with more vertical breaks
are better during the win-
ter periods. Generally, the
same sweet spots on
structure tend to produce
over and over each year.
One of the best ways to
get and keep a bait in
front of fish relating close-
ly to structure in winter is
with a drop shot. This fi-
nesse presentation is es-
pecially suited to clear
water and heavily pres-
sured areas. By shaking
the rod tip, I am able to
give the bait a lifelike ap-
pearance without moving
it out of the strike zone.
Winter can be a great
time to catch fish. With
cold temperatures, most
anglers and boaters are
content to stay off the wa-
ter, leaving most of the
best spots with little fish-
ing pressure. With a little
homework and the right
gear, you can be catching
the big ones while every-
one else is sitting at home.

THRDYFBURI IY 14. 2008 THE JA E N JW FL P E 5


A s I am winding
up this column
on Tuesday
(yes, I am running a little
late), I am looking for-
ward to the girl's softball
game this evening. There
has been a few sprinkles
but certainly not enough
to interfere with a soft-
ball game. Hamilton
County is playing Union
County (Lake Butler)
S here tonight and Jordan
has called twice, check-
1 ing up on the weather,
glad it is ok.
Mrs. Mary Lou (Smith)
McIntosh called last
night. She had received
her Jasper News and
wanted to know about
Mrs. Lillian Bembry. I
talked with Ralph Gay,
he said she will be with
them for a while, no
news regarding therapy,
she has not had any as
yet.
Mrs. McIntosh is now
living in Dowling Park
and has been for quite a
while (eight years I


think) and loves to keep
up with folks from here
and looks forward to re-
ceiving the Jasper News
every week. She will be
remembered by all of us
for the years (18 to be ex-
act) when she was em-
ployed at Hamilton
County Memorial Hospi-
tal. Before to that she
had worked at Leslie's
Grocery Store (that was a
new one to me), then at
Levins, prior to going to
the hospital, she worked
at SVNC for a short time
but had to quit because
of her health. Mary Lou
had six brothers (one,
Sidney lives in Jack-
sonville), and one sister,
deceased. Her husband
Frank died in 1991, and
they lived on a farm out-
side of Jasper. After he
died she moved into one
of the Cleon McGhin
apartments before mov-
ing to Dowling Park,
where she has been for
the past eight years. She
has one daughter and


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


one son who are de-
ceased. A daughter, Al-
isa States, lives here; Bar-
bara lives in Valdosta,
Ga., Judy (Dan) Hodge
lives in Greenwood, S.
Car., (hope I got these
right, if not, Mrs. McIn-
tosh, you call me).
Hal Tuten was in town
last weekend. He came
in while having break-
fast at Mac's Place and
we had a nice visit while
eating breakfast. Hal has
retired from service and
still lives in Pensacola.
His children are all
grown, and of course are
all busy. He was to meet
Steve and they would be
staying at their home
place while here on busi-
ness (Steve travels and is
here quite often). Steve's
children are all grown.


An n
Tuten Deas lives in the
county, she is married to
Roger Deas and they
have their family here.
Their mother, Gwen-
dolyn Tuten, lives at the
Baptist Home in Lake
Park, Ga., having just
moved back there from
Live Oak.
Driving around by the
Court House, I spied a
man with a truck load of
plants, shrubbery, trees,
or whatever, parked
there, bringing back
memories of when Clyde
Payne would take those
around about this time
of year.
On Saturday morning I
also got to have a short
visit with Robert and
Stephanie (Browne) San-
dlin and their daughter


Kaley. They have been
here to take care of sell-
ing Robert's mother's
house (Willa Dean).
SDean is living in Ocala,
where Robert is with the
Sheriff's Department
and Stephanie is with the
school system, Kaley is a
student. Kenneth Hill, a
former classmate of
Robert's was having
breakfast with them,
probably sharing many
memories. As all of you
know, I really enjoy see-
ing and hearing from the
young people who I
have seen grow up in
Hamilton County.
Our community has
been truly blessed this
weekend. A group of
young people, with
adults, had been to
North Georgia on a ski-
ing trip, on their return
trip, around Atlanta, a
tire on the van blew out
and the van flipped over.
Fortunately it was dur-
ing a quiet time (as quiet
as it gets around At-


lanta) and no one was se-
riously hurt, no broken
bones, just bruises and
soreness. How grateful
we are for that. The
group was from Harvest
Fellowship. Grateful
parents, family and
friends drove up and
brought them home with
no further problems, and
with prayers in their
hearts.
Estes Altman is recu-
perating at home follow-
ing surgery, managing
only an occasional trip to
the store, but the store is'
in good hands and we
are thankful Estes is im-
proving and want him to
take care of himself, We
know Frances and family
members are seeing to
that.
Have a good week,
call, write, email or
whatever your choice,
just be in touch.
Blessings

Aging healthily not a mystery


Whether it's fruitful or not, people tend to worry more about
their health as they age. For some, the worrying can be
productive, forcing them to overhaul a lifestyle that might not
be healthy. For others, the worrying might only compound
existing problems.
While it's understandable and necessary to focus more on
health as the aging process progresses, taking care of oneself
and aging healthily doesn't have to be as hard as it seems.
Instead, having an understanding of the human body and what
happens to it as it ages can go a long way toward maintaining a
healthy lifestyle well into one's golden years.
Whenever health comes into question, the first thing to cross
most people's minds is their diet. Dietary changes are necessary
as we get older for a variety of reasons.
SShifting energy levels: One of the foremost reasons diet
changes are needed as we age is the loss of energy that comes
with age. Because the body's energy levels decrease over time,
fewer calories are needed to function on a daily basis. If caloric
intake is not reduced as we age, weight gain and other negative
physical consequences can result.
SWeakening bones: Dietary changes are also necessary to
defend oneself against injuries that can result from bones
weakening as the body ages. As we get older, bones begin to
lose mineral content, making them more susceptible to breaks
and other injuries. In addition, the body is more susceptible to
osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become brittle and
fragile, as it ages. Calcium can help prevent injuries to bones
and osteoporosis, emphasizing the importance of making
calcium a part of your daily diet.
SShift in production: Ever wonder why a middle-aged man
can eat the same diet as a young man but the physical evidence
(namely the difference in body type) will not indicate this to be
true? This is because as a body ages it begins producing more
body fat and less muscle. This means reducing the amount of fat
in your diet as you age and exercising more to combat the
reduction in muscle tissue production is necessary. It's best to
consult a physician for any specific dietary changes, but in
general reducing fat intake while including more protein in your
diet is a good start toward combating the production shift that
takes place as the body ages.
Another thing to expect as you age is changes to your
cardiovascular system. The most noticeable change is the heart
loses some of its efficiency with respect to pumping blood. Part
of that loss of efficiency is due to blood vessels losing some of

their elasticity, making it harder for blood to be pumped. With the
heart now working harder to do the same job it's been doing for
years, certain changes must be made to reduce stress on the heart.
One is reducing fat intake. Someone who has a diet high in fat runs
the very dangerous risk of having fatty deposits form on their artery
walls, stiffening those walls as a result while increasing blood
pressure and making it even harder for the heart to pump blood. This
is another reason to reduce fat intake as you age.
While much of the discussion thus far has focused on ways to lose
weight and maintain a healthy weight, many people, particularly the
elderly, find themselves underweight as they get older.
Unbeknownst to many, being underweight can be just as damaging.
as being overweight. .
Perhaps the biggest risk you run when being underweight is
associated with turning a cold or other short-term illness into a
much bigger problem. Keeping a healthy weight helps ensure that
your body is resilient, fully capable of handling some ailments, such
as cold or flu, that can afflict anyone, regardless of age. Being
underweight lessens your energy reserves, meaning you won't be
able to bounce back as quickly should you get the flu or a cold.
Sometimes, you might not be able to bounce back at all, leading to
permanent disability or, in some cases, death.
For those who are underweight, be sure to eat three meals a day.
Underweight people can find that finishing a meal is tough. If
you're in that boat, this is okay, but make sure you eat the highest
calorie foods on the plate first. If you need to leave anything on the
plate, don't leave the items that will help you get back to a healthy
weight.

nity to feature African butterflies in the But-
terfly Rainforest is also a wonderful com-
plement to the exhibit and a great way for
visitors to experience African wildlife first-

hand."
Through many hands-on activities, three-
dimensional settings, multimedia presenta-
tions and an exceptional collection of
African artifacts, the exhibit demonstrates
the enormous diversity of African geogra-
phy, societies and political systems, and
also helps visitors under-
stand more fully the impact
of slavery and freedom
movements in Africa and the
Americas.
The exhibit will run
through Sept. 7. Admission
is $6.50 for adults, $5.50 for
Florida residents, seniors
ages 62 and above and stu-
dents, and $4 for children
ages 3-12. For more infor-
mation, visit
www.flmnh.ufl.edu.
The content of the exhibit
is organized into four sec-
tions: "Families and Festi-
vals," "Safari," "Caravan"
and "Diaspora," which ex-
amines the disbursement of
Africa's ethnic population
and its cultural development
thereafter.
In Families and Festivals
museum-goers can observe
modem family life through
I realistic settings in the
W courtyard of a suburban
I is hard work home and through videos of
exhibit on dis-
om March 15-
wer needed to ".'
Sone-third the
-


the family's actual courtyard activi-
ties. This section contains an orienta-
tion gallery that offers basic facts
about Africa: its countries, cities, lan-
guages, religions and geography.
The Safari section emphasizes
African wildlife and ecological
tourism. This section features life-size
animal skulls and their environmental
adaptations, a giant termite mound
and interactive video displays on go-
rilla research.
The Caravan section features inter-
active and lifelike displays in a desert
oasis and a Tuareg family tent. The
Tuareg, a semi-nomadic group known
for their salt caravans and distinctive (
blue veils, are the region's best-
known people. An actual goat-skin Flori
tent and other household objects de-
pict the everyday life of modem Tu-
areg merchants who crisscross the Sahara to
reach several of'Africa's metropolitan trad-
ing cities.
The section titled Diaspora examines
Africa's interrelationships with the Americ-
as, focusing on the dispersal of African peo-
ples from Canada to Argentina. Visitors
learn how the majority of Africans histori-
cally arrived in the Americas through the
transatlantic slave trade. The exhibit also
explores African contributions to the cre-
ation of contemporary societies and the
ways those of African descent celebrate
their culture today.

Fun Birthday Themes
Still stuck on what your children and their friends
might enloy? Here are some suggestions for the
hosts and tips for those attending to accentuate
any creative theme.
Colorful celebrations: One simple way to plan
a great party is to base the theme on your child's
favorite color. For example, if your little girl loves
everything pink, throw a pink party.
* Decorate the cake with pink icing and use just a
hint of red food coloring to make a pink batter.
You can even snack pink. Serve strawberry yogurt,
dye the milk pink and combine strawberries,
watermelon and raspberries for an appropriately
festive fruit salad. Pink plates, napkins and cups
are also easy to find.
* Encourage guests to adorn their gifts with pink
wrap and accessories, or bring them in fashionable
pink gift bags. Shoppers can easily find all of their
pink essentials conveniently displayed together in
the Target card, wrap and stationery department.
* Remind all attendees to wear a little something
pink, and make sure the birthday girl is covered
from head to toe in her favorite color. You can
also provide.rose-colored glasses to all of the
guests to ensure a perfectly pink occasion.


A sporting affair: No matter what time of year,
a sports theme is always a great idea. You can spe-
cialize the party based on your son's or daughter's
favorite sport, or design your own sports lounge
recognizing the many sports they enjoy.
* For a simple snack idea for any sport, make your
child's favorite sandwich as the main course and
cut them out in the shape of a football, basketball
or baseball. Decorate each one with mustard or
melted cheese to look like the seams and laces.
* Create a fun and unexpected cake based on a park
or playing field. For example, create a great golf
course cake by dyeing shredded coconut green to
mirror the greens of the course. Use brown sugar
for sand traps, blue icing for water hazards, and
you could even sneak in a few candy golf balls to
top it off.
M Want a way to get a few things done with one easy
suggestion? Get fun t-shirts made up as jerseys for
all of the kids. These can act as their placeholders
at the table an unexpected and thoughtful favor
that leads perfectly to them teaming up for a game
in the backyard.


An assist from animals: For young children few
things are as interesting as the animal world. If
your little one loves everything animal, create a
zoo, circus or carnival party.
* In lieu of a cake, get the kids more involved and
let them decorate cupcakes with their favorite
animal faces.
* Let out your inner animal in decorating for the
party. Something as simple as drawing animal
faces on balloons or creating garlands with circus
peanuts to hang over a chandelier or railing will
help to get everyone in the carnival spirit.
a Possible activities for an animal themed party are
endless. Have an older brother, sister or friend paint
animal faces on your child and their guests. If you
want a more handmade look, get everything the
kids would need to create their own inventive
animal masks to wear to the party. Simple
items like markers, craft paper, cotton
and twist ties or pipe cleaners should
be all you'll need. L


Trouble coming up with the perfect theme? Don't worry, just build the party around one of
your children's favorite characters. For instance, you can find everything you need for the
perfect Hello Kitty party in the card, wrap and stationery department at Target.


Rules to plan by
In planning a birthday party for your child, there
are a few golden rules that Thompson and her
team pass along.
* Limit the party to two hours if you are hosting
it at your house. This will give you sufficient
time for preparation and clean up, and it is just
enough time to keep all guests entertained.

A candy-coated party: What kid doesn't love candy?
So why not use it as a fun way to coordinate your
child's party?
* Have the guests design their very own party hats
with candy. Cover a basic party hat with construc-
tion paper and let the kids go wild with their sweet
imaginations.
Sweeten up your cake presentation by having cups
of different assorted candies scattered around and
let the party guests decorate their own masterpiece.
Instead of using traditional ribbons to wrap each
place setting, use licorice or candy bracelets. Your
centerpiece could actually be as simple as layering
glasses or bowls with colored jellybeans for a fun
visual effect.


A sports theme is a fun
idea for any birthday
party. Base it on a
particular sport or a
general sporting theme
and come up with fun
snacks and activities
A f d all will enjoy. And, of
..qd i course, no party would
br complete without a
-td o great card. This unique
card, featuring a 360-
degree design, is the
perfect way to say
happy birthday to
any sports fanatic.




















m Be sure to find out about any food allergies or
general preferences from other parents. Making
sure everyone can enjoy the party and all of
the snacks is essential.
* Short on time? Not a problem. Get one of
your children's favorite characters to help you.
This year some of the most popular themes
at Target include those from the blockbuster
film Transformers and new offerings from the
always-popular Hello Kitty collection.
