officers initially thought the
accident on US 41 in the
Winfield area of north of
Lake City was a random
head-on collision. Then it
was determined that Philpot


had been released from the
Florida Department of Cor-
rections in May 2007 after
serving a prison sentence for
false imprisonment and ag-
gravated assault on Pafford,
according to the CCSO.
A search of the area with
canine teams led law en-


forcement officers to an area
where Philpot may have
been picked up by a vehicle.
Philpot was the subject of a
nationwide manhunt until
his capture by the Houston
Fugitive Apprehension Unit.

Fire destroys abandoned truck


By Melody Lee

A 1987 Chevrolet truck was
destroyed by fire in Oak Hill
Plantation, near Jennings, ac-
cording to a report from fire
officials. Crossroads and BelL

guished the fire before it
could reach a wooded area.
No one was around the
truck, which belonged to
Donald Rackley, 1102 Poplar

and the State Fire Marshall


Were contacted to investigate
the fire.
Several neighbors respond-
ed with rakes, shovels and
hoses, which turned out to ex-
tinguishing the fire, according
to Gayle Bryan, a resident of
the area.

L THEI J


Philpot arrested in Houston


Continued From Page 1A

"Through investiga-
tion and the sheer tenac-
ity of my detectives, we
were able to determine a
cell phone purchased in
Lake City was in the
area of Houston and
was calling a Houston-
based telephone num-
ber," said Sheriff Bill
Gootee. "After more in-
vestigation and old-fash-
ioned police work, we
identified an address we
believed he was at or
near."


Philpot was leaving
the room when the
marked units arrived
and he tried to elude of-
ficers, but was quickly
captured, according to
Gootee. He was arrested
and booked into the
Harris County Jail on a
warrant for leaving the
scene of a crash with a
death, leaving the scene
of a crash with serious
injury and violation of
probation.
Philpot has waived the
extradition process and
will be transported back


to Florida via a private
prisoner transport com-
pany. At this time, it is
not known when he will
return, according to
CCSO.
"My detectives have
spent endless hours
since the crash following
up on leads, interview-
ing family and 'friends of
Mr. Philpot and tracking
him to many locations,"
said Gootee. "Now that
he is in custody,.Mr.
Philpot will answer to
the crimes he is accused
of committing."


Smokey Bear spreads the word


Continued From Page 1A

Oak Ranger Station, the
Smokey Bear sign will
indicate the level of
danger for wildfires and
will be updated daily.
The different levels of


threat range from low
to extreme with five
levels of threat. The
lowest danger level,
which is often repre-
sented by the number
one or the color green,
means that fuels do not

readily ignite. Once a
fire has begun it will
burn slowly and with
low intensity.
With an extreme dan-
ger level, which is repre-
sented by the number
five or the color red,
fires start quickly and
spread furiously. All
fires that are started
have the potential to be-
come large and very se-
rious. Once an extreme
danger level has been
determined, fire restric-
tions will most likely be
initiated.
The sign will make a
nice addition to the tow-
er site and also keep the
members of the commu-
nity informed of the
wildfire threat in their
area. Additionally, in
Smokey Bear fashion,
the sign will also remind
people "only you can
prevent forest fires."
The Division of
Forestry would like to
extend a special thank
you to the Lowe's in
Live Oak. They have
once again helped us in
our mission of spread-
ing the word on wildfire

vention.

Life i
By. Walter McKenzie
-Let's talk about change.
The word "change" is
very much in the news
nrtw. During my eighteen
ytiars of living here and
my ten years of visiting
before that I have seen
our town change while at
the same time seeming to
re iain changeless in ap-
pe&rance and custom to
the eye of the casual ob-
server. White Springs
over the years has met
many challenges and sur-
vived many storms,
weather wise and other-
wise.
This column itself is a
change. Hopefully a good
one for you, certainly a
challenging one for me. I
follow someone whose
knowledge about White
Springs is encyclopedic
and whose love for
Iamilton County is well
Known.
SEach week this column
will offer you opportuni-
. .I".-'


n White Springs


ties to learn about, to be
entertained by, and to be
involved in Life in White
Springs.
Some things you should
know about life this week
in White Springs. The
Wild Azalea Festival
takes place this Saturday.
At the Nature and Her-
itage Tourism Center
there will be amazing mu-
sic (six different acts),
dance, food, crafts, wild
azaleas, the crowning of
the next Little Miss Wild
Azalea and a duck race.
Duck Race??? Yes, you
buy a ticket for a plastic
duck which is numbered,
all the ducks are put in
the river and the first
three to cross the finish
-line win. First prize is a
canoe complete with pad-
dles and life vests. Sec-
ond prize is two weekend
tickets to the Florida Folk
Festival. Third prize is a
weekend at the Spirit of
the Suwannee Park. Tick-


ets are on sale at Town
Hall and will be available
at the festival. The pro-
ceeds go towards spon-
soring the festival and
other events in White
Springs.
The world comes to
White Springs a first for
White Springs this is
news all over North Flori-
da! Five of the original
African American Artists
known as the Florida
Highwaymen, who sold
their original paintings
along A1A and other
highways of south Florida
during the 50's and 60's
will be at the Stephen Fos-
ter Park during the Wild
Azalea Festival. They will
be painting, demonstrat-
ing techniques, lecturing
and answering questions
throughout the day this
Saturday at the Stephen
Foster Park. Also at the
park on Friday, there will
be a reception open to the
public, a silent auction


fundraiser and a preview
with the artists from 6:30
p.m. until 8:30 p.m. for a
$5 donation payable at
the door. For even more
information, Google
"White Springs and
Highwaymen."
The White Springs
Community extends
heartfelt sympathy to the
family of Sophie Saun-
ders Falt.
So much more to say,
but for my first column,
I'm sure you'll agree, I've
said enough! So for now,
until next week, that's
"Life in White Springs."

Marion Turner to

celebrate 80th birthday
rn


ByJane Tyree Lowe
Marion Turner moved
to Hamilton County in
1963 and it must have been
"love at first sight." She
loved Hamilton County
and its people. When peo-
ple think of her, they think
of how hard she worked
for the betterment of the
people and our communi-
ty.
Sometimes, Marion's
"fight" was controversial,
but her endeavors were al-
ways about jobs for the
people. She never tired of
seeking new businesses
that would improve our
community.
During the 13 years she
served as the executive di-
rector of the Hamilton
County Chamber of Com-
merce, she organized the
first night Christmas pa-
rade, the first Chamber
dinner, and "Art in the
Park.". Marion was instru-
mental in organizing the
Republican Party- of
Hamilton County and
cherished the political de-
bate with the Democrats.
She served as State Com-
mittee Woman several
times and attended some
of the Presidential Inaugu-
rations. She helped orga-
nize the first Republican
Political forum. She would'


not hesitate to phone the
Governor's office when
asked to.
Marion adores her chil-
dren and grandchildren.
While she was very busy,
she did not neglect her
family and usually "volun-
teered" our help. Many
teenagers enjoyed her
home during the Prom or
Holly Ball. Many teacher's
meetings were held in her
home when I was presi-
dent of the teacher's union.
Unfortunately, Marion
had a stroke at the end of
December. She is being
well cared for at the
Suwannee Health Care Re-
hab facility in Live Oak.
She knows most visitors
and can talk a little.
Due to her illness, the
80th birthday celebration
we had planned on March
22, will not happen. We
want to make Marion's
birthday a special event
and hope you will send
her a birthday card to our
address: Terry and Jane
Lowe, 12020 CR 137 N,
Wellborn, FL 32094.
Thank you, Hamilton
County, for helping to
make her birthday and her
life enjoyable.
Proud to be her "daugh-
ter" since 1973,
.,Jane Tyree 1we

Arbor Day at SHE


Submitted
Students at South Hamilton Elemen-
tary (SHE) observed Florida Arbor Day
in January with the planting of two
dogwood trees on the front lawn of the
school property .
Hamilton County Senior Forester
Greg Staten made a short presentation
to Mrs. Adams' and Mrs. Scott's third
grade classes about the importance of
trees in our everyday lives and the
many useful benefits and products we
get from trees.
After the presentation, Staten and
SHE Principal Waylon Bush assisted
the students in planting the dogwood


trees. The students helped with all
steps involved in transplanting the
trees from the containers to the
ground, and committed to keep them
w\'atered.
The students were each given a pine
tree seedling to take home and plant.
Teachers and staff at the school were
gi\en dogwood seedlings as well.
A special thanks to Roebuck's Nurs-
ery for donating the dogwood trees for
planting at the school, and to Dwight
Stansel Farm and Nursery for donating
the pine and dogwood seedlings that,
the students and teachers were given
to take home.

Town Happenings


Well, spring has
sprung, and I hope every-
one is enjoying the beauty
that nature has provided.
A few days ago I was en-
joying the peace and tran-
quillity of watching the
river flow by at home,
when suddenly floating
past was an overturned
canoe followed by several
people swimming and a
lot of other canoes trying
to assist.
Someone had called 911
and shortly on scene were
police officers, Sheriff's
deputies and fire fighters
on hand trying to assist.
In all this mayhem along
came Dennis Price in his
canoe with Khrys Kan-
tarze and Deb Odom in
their canoes and in-
formed us that they had
helped rescue the over-
turned canoe. All was
well, thanks to the local
citizens' help and the
only injuries were cold
wet tourists.
Our Suwannee River is
a wonderful river and
provides a great place to
relax and experience na-
ture at its best, but
tourists need to be
warned that around
every bend lurks danger;
also wear your life vest -
many of the overturned
canoeists were not wear-
ing their life vests.
March is a busy month
for our community, be-
ginning with the Eighth
Annual Wild Azalea Fes-
tival on Saturday, March


15. The fun begins at 9
a.m. with arts and crafts,
food vendors, entertain-
ment at the Nature Her-
itage Center, horse and
buggy rides and a chil-
dren's area. A special
event this year will be the
appearance of several of
the original Florida High-
waymen artists display-
ing their work along with
a Signs of the South Pho-
tography Exhibit by Rick
Lang. What a wonderful
day for Hamilton County
- start in White Springs
with the Azalea Festival
and travel a few miles to
participate in the Celebra-
tion of Jasper's 150th
Birthday ending with the
fireworks display.
6n March 28-30, the
Florida Trails Association
will hold their annual
Conference at the
Stephen Foster State Folk
Cultural Center a week-
end of celebration with
arts and crafts, hiking

is simply beautiful. The

ness is a wonderful addi-
tion to our community.

but watch out,, there are
other teams walking their
way to the top.
Many teams have not as
of yet reported their
mileage and we're re-
questing that these be
brought to the Hamilton
County Extension Office
or faxed to 792-6446.
Teams should keep their
mileage from Wednes-
days to Tuesdays and re-
port those miles for each
team member weekly on
Tuesday. We encourage
teams to continue walk-
ing and adding on miles
since they can always
catch up with the leaders.
We are currently col-
lecting donations for Re-
lay for Life. Participants
agreed that they would
like to use Relay for Life
as a finale for the compe-
tition; it will allow teams
to add extra distance to
their totals at the very last
minute and help support
a great cause.
On Tuesday, March 18,
we will have our next
Hamilton on the Move
meeting at the Hamilton
County Extension office
at 5:30 p.m. Be sure not to
miss out on this one! We
will have yoga instructor
present to teach us about
the benefits and serenity
involved in yoga. Hope to
see you there.
Call 792-1276 for more
details.

NWTF's Florida State Chapter earns award


Submitted
The Florida State Chap-
ter of the National Wild
Turkey Federation
(NWTF) received an LA.
Dixon Memorial Chapter
Award during the annual
Convention and Sport
Show in February. The
award ;recognized the
state chapter as the second
runner-up in the Chapter
With More Than 10,000
Members Category.
"Our chapters and vol-
unteers are our greatest
asset, and the lifeblood of


the NWTF," said Rob
Keck, NWTF CEO. "Their
support makes the
NWTF's work possible.
We honor our chapters for
their efforts through the
LA Dixon awards because
we know who makes the
NWTF so great."
The LA Dixon Memori-
al awards are given in
honor of a man who gave
unselfishly during the
NWTF's early years.
Dixon founded the North
Carolina State NWTF
chapter, served at the na-


tional, state and local lev-
els and traveled thou-
sands of miles at his own
expense carrying the
NWTF's message to all
who would listen.
The LA Dixon awards
are given to local, state
and provincial chapters
that excel at conservation
fund raising, education
and outreach events.
Chapter awards honor
year-round performance,
while banquet awards
honor one-time banquet
performance.


The NWTF is a nonprof-
it organization with more
than 550,000 members in
50 states, Canada, Mexico
and 14 other foreign coun-
tries. It supports scientific
wildlife management on
public, private and corpo-
rate lands as well as wild
turkey hunting as a tradi-
tional North American,
sport.

Dixon awards or other

Poor substitutes


By Peggy Boston
Did you know that
sweet is addictive? The
sweeter your diet, the
more you want sweet.
The more sweet you eat,
the more you need to ac-
tually feel satiety. Satiety
is the key to moderate
eating.
The artificial sweeten-
ers on the market that
people use to sweeten tea,
bake with or just sprinkle
on something are be-
tween 300 to 1200 times
sweeter than real sugar.
Could that be the reason a
diet soda usually leaves
you feeling like you need
a sugar chaser making
your weight soar out of
control, just when you
thought you had it under
control with the best of
the best substitutes on the
market. Why replace
calories with chemicals?
For years, researchers
have observed that peo-
ple using low-calorie,
sugar and fat replace-
ment to control their
weight don't seem to
have much success.
Somehow artificial sweet-
eners disrupt the body's
process that is critical for
maintaining a healthy
body weight.
Susan Swithers, PhD
states "It is reasonable to
assume that by consum-
ing these substances, peo- .
ple might lose one of the
automatic or unconscious
mechanisms we have for
regulating food intake
and body weight. That


might force people to use
more conscious mecha-
nisms like counting
calories or exercising or
rely on willpower in a
way that they wouldn't if
they had these more auto-
matic processes."
People consuming
these substitute foods
might believe the calories
they "save" give them
leeway to eat extra
amounts of high-calorie
foods with impunity. But
the one certainty is that
these products don't
prove they do the one
thing we expect help us
lose weight. It hasn't"
curbed our devotion or
production of them
though. Manufacturers
are not obligated to show
that artificial sweeteners
help with weight control,
but if you say "no calo-
ries," it sure sounds an
awful lot like it will help
you slim down!
Eating chemicals is
nowhere near as good as
eating real food. Don't
convince yourself that
you are incapable of curb-
ing your appetite on your.
own. Successful long-
term weight loss involves
becoming engaged with
your food fi real food.
Choose it, cook it, enjoy it
and learn to sense when
you've had enough. Low-
cal foods don't support
that conscious relation-
ship. They confuse it.
SSigning off for now, PB
& J(without the J), Fitness
Trainer.

CATCH OF THE DAY: Jasper Chief of Police Jeff McGuire holds
high a favorite catch (one of many) from a recent trip he and
his wife, Becky, made to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. As guests of
Jeff's mother, they spent seven sunny days enjoying Mexican
food, touring, shopping at street markets, walking the beach-
es, and, of course, fishing. Becky was fascinated with the
beautiful arts and crafts, the beaches and the large sand
sculptures. Jeff and Becky will travel to Ireland next year with
their whole family, as well as his three brothers and their fam-
ilies. Photo Submitted


Little green monsters lurk in Okefenokee


When people think of
Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge (NWR),
they often think of large
predators such as alliga-
tors and black bears.
Within the refuge live
much smaller but more
devious predators car-
nivorous, or flesh-eating,
plants that use deception
to prey on, capture, and
consume the unwary for
their own survival.
The Okefenokee NWR


is a world of mystery and
intrigue. A collection of
swamp woods, sandy is-
lands, marshes and lakes
surrounded by pine for-
est, the Okefenokee
Swamp is one of the
largest freshwater wet-
lands in the United
States. Here carnivorous
plants have survived for
thousands of years. They
are able to survive and
thrive by doing what
most other plants are in-


capable of doing con-
suming animal flesh.
These masters of decep-
tion require inorganic nu-
trients from insects, spi-
ders or aquatic inverte-
brates to supplement
their diet. Without these
additional nutrients, car-
nivorous plants won't re-
produce and will soon
die.
To attract their prey,
carnivorous plants use
scent and color, similar to


how humans use fra-
grances and fashion to
enhance their attractive-
ness. The plants also have
specialized structures
and sensory hairs de-
signed to entice and trap
their quarry. These modi-
fications, while very
strange in appearance, al-
low them to lure, trap,
and consume their prey.
In this world of fierce
competition, four types of
carnivorous plants strug-


gle for survival in the
Okefenokee NWR. Their
names are apt descrip-
tions of their otherworld-
ly-appearance: pitcher
plant, bladderwort, but-
terwort, and sundew.
While deadly to their
prey, carnivorous plants
are helpful to humans.
They reduce the number
of mosquitoes, yellow
flies, and other insect
pests. Even the death of
these plants will improve


the soil as their bodies de-
compose back into the
earth.
While not possessing
showy flowers like tulips
or rose bushes, carnivo-
rous plants of the swamp
possess a special beauty
that makes them stand
out to the watchful eye.
They are just one of many
fascinating components
that make the Okefeno-
kee NWR a special place
to visit.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


After all the storms,
wind and rain, they
brought azaleas begin-
ning to blossom, dog-
wood trees blooming,
hope we do not have bad
weather to make them go
away too soon. It is hard
to tell as the weather re-
ports do not always seem
to be able to determine
just what is going to come


next. I
did not leave the house on
Friday, had everything
packed away to stay in
my hallway, where I can
close all windows off and
be fairly comfortable, and
I could hear the scanner
and had two televisions
going, plenty of reading
material and the lights
did not go out, very com-


Sfortable. We have been so
blessed, storms have not
been to bad right here in
Hamilton County, even
When they rage nearby,
for which we are thankful
and pray for those less
fortunate.
The big news and ex-
citement this weekend
will be the long awaited
celebration of the sesqui-
centennial of Jasper and
hopefully a big day on
Saturday. It seems there
will be something for
everyone, good entertain-
ment, food, and we are


sure there will be much
talk of bringing back old
memories, it occurred to
me that next year I will
celebrate having been in
Hamilton County 50
years, and even that is a
long time to be in one
place, especially if not
born here, and in this
home 40 years.
The VFW will be
preparing packages this
Thursday (today), they
have been doing this once
a month but Cecil Davis
said they might change to
doing it by the quarter,


package products and
money may be dropped
off at the library.
There will be a Republi-
can meeting at the library
on Thursday evening
with a candidate as
speaker, sorry I wrote the
name down but mis-
placed it, hope all Repub-
licans will plan to attend.
Inez McGhin has re-
turned to her home in
Tennessee after spending
several days here with her
family, they had a big get-
together on Saturday,
Inez got in some bridge,

visits with friends and at-
tended church at Jasper
Presbyterian, her home
church, on Sunday morn-
ing, of course she got to
visit with many friends
there. The family mem-
bers went to H&F for
lunch and I am sure she
saw and visited with
many there.
We understand that
Amber Lee gave a beauti-
ful concert at First United
Methodist Church on
Sunday. She is a beautiful
young Christian girl and
uses her talents to bring a
message.
We have visited with
Anna Cameron at Suwan-
nee Valley Nursing Cen-
ter. Anna brought Jen-
nings news to us through
the Jasper News for a
number of years, keeping
us informed of what was
happening there. We miss
her.
It has been brought to
our attention that a new
Christian Book Store is
going to be where
Stephanie's was previous-
ly. We will know more af-
ter Friday, as we hear the
lady will be the program
at Woman's Club on Fri-
day. You might want to
come to find out her
plans.
Bill Sapp is in rehab
hospital in St. Petersburg
having had a fall in No-
vember. We remember
Bill and Faye living in
Jasper for a number of
years and raising their
family here (they still
have a place here but
have not been able to
come since his accident).
Bill was with Florida
Power, I have an address
if you would like to send
a card, or remember them
in some way, call me and
I will give it to you. Sam
and Gertie Anderson are
keeping in touch with
them ard will keep us in-
formed.
As you know I have al-
ways been interested in
the happenings in Hamil-
ton County, that is why I
have called it "Norris
Notes," instead of Jasper
Notes. If I can be of any
help in getting your news
in the paper, please call
me, I would love to hear
from you.
Have a good weekend,
and start it on Saturday at
the big Celebration!

Fun a factor for children's dental care


Keeping up with a kid is no easy feat. Most parents know that a
child is a bundle of energy with an attention span that lasts mere
minutes if you're lucky! So when it comes to teaching children
the lessons of being an independent person such as personal
grooming habits there are distinct challenges. But with a little
patience and a dash of fun, no task is insurmountable.

More Cavities in Young Kids Means Better Brushing Needed

There is growing evidence that children's dental health is an area
on which most families need to focus more attention. Dentists say
they are treating more and more young patients who have cavities
in their primary teeth. A new Center for Disase Control and
Prevention study reports that almost a third of all kids between 2
and 5 have cavities in their baby teeth. Experts attribute the trend
to several factors, including an upsurge in sugared snacks, juice
and soda consumption, the rising use of bottled, non-fluoridated
water, and the fact that children simply don't spend enough time
brushing teeth.

Many people are under the assumption that oral hygiene is not
something that really needs to be worried about in young kids.
After all, baby teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth will
grow in their place. But this is far from the case. The American
Dental Association (ADA) says that cavities in baby teeth can
cause a number of problems, including tooth loss, ear and speech
problems, crooked permanent teeth, severe pain, poor self-image,
and tooth decay. That's why the ADA recommends starting
children's dental care when they are still babies. A dentist's visit
should occur by age 1. Brushing should begin at age 2 and be
supervised until a child is 6 or 7.

Beating Brushing Blues

The recommended brushing time to get teeth clean is a minute
for the top arch of teeth and a minute for the bottom. So how does
a parent get their child to cooperate? Make it fun, says Dr. Fresh,
the maker of the FireFly, a bright and sparkly children's
toothbrush that lights up and flashes.

The FireFly toothbrush was developed when Dr. Fresh (yes, he
is a real person) could not get his young daughter to brush for long
enough. To inspire "psychological compliance," he basically took
the LCD light out of a pair of fancy sneakers and put it in the
bottom of a regular toothbrush. With more research and
development, he created the FireFly, which uses the same
"blinking technology" in a durable, ergonomically-designed
toothbrush for kids.

"Most of us underestimate how long a minute really is," says Dr.
Fresh. And a minute can seem interminable for an active child
looking to move on to his or her next activity.

The FireFly, which blinks for 60 seconds, is a way to instill the
one-minute each arch brushing routine. Have children press the

Make it fun and kids will follow. Brushing gets a boost from a toothbrush with a
blinking light that tells kids how long to polish those pearly whites.
button to start the LCD light housed safely in the handle of the
toothbrush. Once the light stops blinking, it's time to move onto the
other row of teeth. Push the button again to activate the light.

Other Dental Tips

But oral care doesn't end with brushing alone. Dr. Fresh offers
additional advice.

Forgetting floss? Children should also floss regularly as early
as when they have two front teeth erupted, say experts. Flossing is
really important for molars because they are generally closer to
each other than the front teeth. Again, until they reach the age of 6,
you will have to help them. Gently lift the floss up between teeth
towards the gum and all the way through to the inside of the mouth.
Don't saw that can damage fragile young gum tissue.

STime for a change: Everyone adults and children should
replace a toothbrush after three months of use. If a child has
recently had a virus or infection (like strep throat), change the
toothbrush immediately after he or she gets better to avoid re-
infection.

SFun flavor: There are a variety of toothpaste flavors available to
appeal to kids who don't enjoy the plain minty variety most adults
use. And with cartoon characters adorning the packaging, your
child may be racing to add a dab of paste to his or her FireFly and
get brushing.

The best way to impart lessons of oral care is to show by example.
Make it fun and educational for children and they'll be more
inclined to follow along.

fun products, visit www.drfresh.com.

In the market for a new
car but don't know where to
start? Don't worry, your
friends from the Federal
Trade Commission and the
Federal Citizen Information
Center can help. They've put
together a handy package of
publications with all the ins
and outs of getting a good
deal on your new ride.
First, calculate how much
car you can afford. If you're
financing or leasing your
new vehicle, use the
Monthly Spending Plan to
figure out an affordable
payment. Next, think about
what type of car you would
like. Do you want a coupe,
sedan, truck, or SUV? Or
what about a hybrid? Should
it be manual or automatic?
As you're researching the
different makes and models,
also consider any options
that you might want such as
trim, alloy wheels, or a
moonroof.
After you've decided on
your dream ride, shop
around or new car prices and
features using auto buying
guides, the Internet, and
other sources. Negotiate
with the dealer about
lowering their profit margin,
which is usually 10 to 20
percent of the MSRP. Once
you're at the dealership, it's
important that you stay
within the price range you
can afford and that you
understand the value and
cost of optional products
such as an extended service
contract.
If you plan on financing
your new car, you'll want to
check your credit report
first. Errors or inaccurate
information may affect the
finance rate you're able to
obtain. Next, compare
annual percentage rates
(APRs) and financing terms
from multiple finance
sources such as a bank,
finance company, credit
union, or car dealer. Be
aware that if you choose to
finance your car, the lender
keeps the vehicle's title until
you've paid the contract in
full. And remember to read
the contract carefully. Once
you sign, you're obligated to
the terms.
Make buying your new
car a breeze by sending for
the New Ride package.
There are three easy ways to


q")e


get your package of
publications:
Send your name, address,
and a check or money order
for $2 to New Ride, Pueblo,
CO 81009.

information and take
advantage of online
government services
resources at www.USA.gov

Federal government.
