In memory of those who

didn't make it home


By Jo Ross
As most residents were beginning,their
Friday workday, a handful of community
citizens gathered to devote the first 30 minutes
of their day to the honor and memory of our
nation's prisoners of war and missing in action
(MIA-POW).
Speaking on behalf of Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post #8095, Commander Lamar Royals
urged those gathered to "visualize the agony in
the minds of the families not knowing the
whereabouts of their husbands, sons, brothers,
wives, daughters, sisters, mothers."
On Sept. 16, 1997, President Clinton signed a
proclamation declaring a National POW-MIA
Recognition Day. Since then, the third Friday
of September has generally been set aside to-
'pay tribute to the MIA-POW's and their
families.
According to most recent statistics posted on
. the U.S. government's MIA-POW Website,
1,854 American military personfiel are being
held as prisoners of war or have been declared

A message from the Mayor


Continued From Page 1A

Community Unity began
several months back with
citizens who were
concerned for the young
people in our community.
With nothing else to do
they were just hanging out
and some were getting in
trouble. So we discussed
the possibility of having
planned activities and
getting involved with our
children / youth. Our first
planned activity was a
basketball tournament in
Buddy Parker Park on Aug.


16.
S'On Sept. 19 we sponsored
a fundraiser, which was a
success. We have a
basketball tournament
scheduled for Oct. 18, and '
we will be feeding the
football team in October.
Our plans are to participate
in the homecoming parade
and have a Christmas dance
for the youth.
We also have plans to
help the elderly citizens in
the community..The more
members we have, the more
success we willhave. We
presently have


approximately 20 members.
if you are interested making
a difference please plan on
attending a meeting or give
me a call at 386-792-2949.
Community Unity will
not be able to continue to
sponsor activities without
your help. I pray God will
bless each and every one of
you that has given whether
it was with money, time or
talents. I look forward to
seeing this group grow in
unity and see Jasper be the
best it has ever been.

f r, T Tello' Vhite
S. -- Spri ng- Last
w-- week this col-
umn talked about w hat
a drawi the 'uw.annee
River i to I %I VISitor-
from near and far lTh o
week I want to gi\e
you a head-, up about
-w an upcoming event on
S- "-- : our Su'. annee River
that could be fun to enter or just watch. It's been go-
ing on here for seven years and I'll bet that a lot of
you don't even know about it. It's another one of our
"hidden" treasures that is in plain sight. Here are the
facts in advance so you can make plans to participate
or watch.
The seventh annual Suwannee River Challenge &
Marathon will be held on Saturday, Oct. 11. This
event is hosted by American Canoe Adventures in
White Springs.
The Challenge race spans 52-miles, a feat for any
paddler. An all day event, the race will start at dawn
in Fargo, Ga and will end at sundown in White
Springs, at the 136 bridge. The half way point of the
race is the SR-6 bridge where paddlers can meet their
support crews to grab food or other supplies.
The Swannee Marathon is a 26-mile race that bel-
gins at the SR -6 bridge and ends also in White
Springs.
Both races go through Big Shoals, the only class III
white water in Florida.
This area will be clearly marked and participants
are encouraged to bring support crews for the event.
The entry fee is $35 before Oct. 1, and after then it is
$45. Each Participant will be given a free t-shirt.
Come on White Springs! Let's have at least one lo-
cal entry! Life in White Springs will buy dinner at the
Telford Hotel and give.two free tickets for the White


Spring- Folk Club October performance to the first
team trom the \White Springs area to
finish the race. For entry forms
call American Canoe Ad-
ventures at 3'7--13Q9 or ILV
go to www.aca l.co m.
Tom Shed gave an
excellent perfor-
mance to a too
small crowd at the
Telford Hotel for
the White Springs
Folk Club's Sep-
tember perfor-lA fA U<>
mance. His stories
and songs covered the
history .of our area in a
fascinating and entertain-
ing way. Desoto's march, the
civil war, Florida's Native Ameri-
cans, Stephen Foster, our state song, the Jacksonville
Fire and a certain woman named Ruby McCollum
were all subjects of Tom's powers of oBlservation and
musical creativity. If you weren't there, you missed a
good night of music and a real learning experience
about this place we live called Florida. Many thanks
to all who supported this event.
I notice we have a barber/hair stylist in town now
located at White Springs Self Storage on the north
end of town. Sure is nice to know that I don't have to
travel thirty miles to get a haircut anymore. Stop by
and give them a visit.
On Oct. 7, the Hamilton County Democratic Party
is hosting a dinner at the Telford Hotel (16521 River
Street) at 6 p.m. State Senator Tony Hill (D-Jack-
sonville) and State Representative Loranne Ausley
(D-Tallahassee) will be the honored guests. Each will


liieinwnitespringsig_'gmaii .corr


briefly -peak on the importance ot voting in the pre-
sent election c\cle. Leonard Bembry, our Demo-
cratic candidate for State House District 10,
will also be there to meet and greet local
voters. Co-t for the dinner is $25 per
person. Tickets can be purchased
the rught of the event, but space is
limited so early ticket purchases
are encouraged. For more infor-
mation, people can feel free to
call Rhett Bullard at (386) 303-
fil 2039
The touch of fall in the air feels
mighty good. It has been a long
hot summer and I'm glad to see
cooler weather on the way. Fall in
North Florida can be like Forest
Gump's box of chocolates, you never
know what you're going to get, could be
Summer one day and Winter the next.
Investments are seldom a subject of this column
but with all the turmoil in the market recently I feel
compelled give a little investment advice. Invest
wisely and remember, some of the most important
investments you can make have nothing to do with
money. For some guaranteed returns invest yourself
in family, faith, friends, neighbors, community ser-
vice, reading, music, art, exercise, fun, work, health,
well-being, learning, living, loving and forgiving. In
*the long run, you will do much better than you
could on Wall Street.
Having said all that I think I've said enough, at
least for this week, so until next time that's life in
White Springs.

Home maintenance checklist


By Ken Hoyt
A well-maintained
home doesn't require a
lot of chemicals with
scary names you can't
pronounce. Just follow
these simple steps each
month to keep your
house humming along
efficiently.
Vacuum the vents on
your refrigerator; clean
coils are more energy ef-
ficient. Check the drain
pan for excess water.
Check and clean or re-
place the furnace filter;
a dirty filter impedes
the flow and quality of
air. Exhaust fans in' the
kitchen and bath tend to
collect dirt. (Be sure to
turn off the power be-
fore cleaning.)
Keeping drains free
doesn't require toxic
chemicals. Just pour one
cup of baking soda in
and around each sink
drain, then follow with
1/2 cup of white vine-
gar. A half hour later,
chase the mixture with a
cup or two of boiling
water.


Check kitchen and
bath grout and caulking.
Discoloration could be
hiding damage. When
the waterproof seal is
broken, structural dam-
age and harmful molds
can find a home in the
wall.
Water creates costly
damage. While you're
inspecting plumbing fix-
tures, also check appli-
ances that have water
connections, such as
dishwashers and ice-
making refrigerators.
Collected lint in the
hose and exhaust area
of your clothes dryer
obstructs hot-air flow.
Besides creating a fire
hazard, lint blocks the
hot-air exit, which slows
the drying process and
wastes energy.
A few drops of miner-
al oil can improve the
longevity of hinges an'd
drawer guides. Avoid
products such as Wt)-
40, which is high in tox-
- ic chemicals.
Regularly touch up
trim paints to keep your


home looking clean and
bright, using up older
paint you have on hand.
For new projects, low-
VOC (volatile organic
compound) paint emits
fewer air-polluting
chemicals.

ural Home, a national

formation
The viruses that cause
influenza change rapid-
ly, making different
strains coexist at any
given time. Influenza
vaccines are developed
each year to protect peo-
ple from the three
strains expected to be
most prevalent. All the'
viruses in the vaccines
are killed, so it is not
possible to get the flu
from the vaccine. Since
the immunity provided
by the vaccine wanes af-
ter several months, it is
given at the beginning
of the "flu season." Most
people receive protec-
tion from influenza vac-
cine approximately 2
weeks after receiving
the immunization.
The vaccine is recom-
mended for high-risk
people: all people over
50 years of age, healthy
children ages 6 months -


23 months; children
ages 2-18 years who are
household contacts of
persons at risk, adults
.and children with
chronic lung or heart
problems, residents of
nursing homes (extend-
ed care facilities), people
treated in the last year
for kidney disease, ane-
mia, severe asthma, or
chronic metabolic ill-
nesses (such as diabetes
or chronic liver disease),
people with immuno-
logical deficits (such as
chemotherapy patients

V Wsitydwn Fday at 7 p.m.


Trojans come up short


The home debut for Trojans
was not a great one. The Tro-
jans were outscored by the In-
dians of Chiefland, 43-6. Early
turnovers and penalties cause
a early 28-6 at the half.
In the first half, Robert
Davis provided a huge spark
with his interception, and're-


turn for touchdown (55
yards). The extra point was
missed. Another spark was
the fake punt pass from
Raphael Balleza to Raphael
Ward for a first down. The
pass was 23 yards.
The Trojans travel to Bald-
win this week in a big district


ballgame. This will be the first
district game for both teams.
The Indians have 1-2 record.
There is a change in the
time of the game. The game
will start at 7 p.m.
Again, hope to see you un-
der the LIGHTS on FRIDAY

Program) event where
they launched hand
made rockets high into

Seven Girl Scout
Cadettes from troops
225 and 130 taught thir-
ty five Girl Scout
Brownies how to make
stomp rockets out of
cardstock and tape and
launch them into the air
with PVC rock launch-
ers and 2 liter bottles.
"It was great to see the
look on the Brownies
face's when their stomp
rocket flew into the air."
said Morgan Shattuck of
troop 130 in Wellborn.
The girls also learned
about volcanoes, aster-
oids, the inside of the
earth, the scientific
method and Newton's 3
Laws of Motion all
through fun experi-
ments. "The girl leaders
did their own problem
solving. and critical
thinking to incorporate
the important details
and the parameters of
doing the activities with
younger girls, "said .

The STEM program is
a national movement
focused on getting
women more involved
in male dominated
fields. Girl Scout Volun-
teer Coordinator Kim
Shattuck and her
daughter Morgan
helped coordinate this
event and others -


around North Florida
after training at NASA.
"My daughter wasn't
interested in space until
she experienced this
program. That's what
this program is all
about and I'm ecstatic
that it's spreading
throughout Florida and
the country. The best
part is that it gives the
older girls a chance to
teach the younger girls
and increase their confi-


dence in themselves,"

Put the brakes on debt


By Jason Alderman

I hope this is one col-
umn you'll read and
say, "Whew, I'm glad
that doesn't apply to
,me." I'm talking about
what can happen when
someone's debt spirals,
out of control and they
don't know where to
turn next.
Many people spend
far beyond their means
and don't save ade-
quately for tomorrow's
needs or emergencies.
Some are only one
mishap away from dis-
aster. Suppose you lost
your job, your mortgage
readjusted at a much
higher rate or you in-
curred a catastrophic
medical bill: W1lat
would you do?
Before you find your-
self trapped in a cycle of
debt collection or
Worse, bankruptcy -
here are a few warning
signals and steps you
can take to right the
ship:
Know what you owe.
Some folks have no idea
how much they spend
each month nor how
that compares to money
coming in. Before they
know it, they're strug-.
gling to make minimum
payments and may even
miss a few payment
deadlines, which can'
lead to costly late fees
and elevated interest
rates.
If you don't already
have a budget, create
one right away. Visa

nancial management

and expenses and make

where necessary

As soon as you realize
you're having difficulty
paying bills, proactively'
call your creditors.
Don't wait for them to
.contact you and certain-
ly don't ignore their
calls or correspondence.
It's far better to work
out a payment solution
together than to let your
options expire.
For example, many
credit card companies
will lower interest rates
or work out repayment
schedules for stable cus-
tomers but you have
to ask first. And mort-
gage lenders-today are
much more open to
renegotiating loan terms
if it means keeping yoti
as a paying customer
versus foreclosing
(which is far more cost-
ly and inconvenient for
them). The Federal
Housing Administration
offers comprehensive
advice on avoiding fore-
closure, including links
to local housing coun-
seling services, at por-
tal.hud.gov/portal/pag
e?_pageid=73,1827662&

If you feel trapped, re-
sources are available.
Legitimate credit coun-
seling agencies can
.teach you responsible
money management
skills and, invextreme
cases, help negotiate re-
payment plans with


your creditors, often se-
curing lowered interest
rates and waived late
fees. But use the utmost'
caution when choosing
an agency; unfortunate-
ly, many unscrupulous
firms prey on indebted
people at times when
they're most vulnerable.
If you don't have a .
recommendation from a
trusted acquaintance,
look for members of the
'National Foundation for
Credit Counseling
(www.nfcc.org). The
Federal Trade Commis-
sion provides a guide
for choosing a credit
counselor, including
. questions to ask them
(www.ftc.gov/bcp /con-
line / pubs / credit /fis-
cal.shtm).
Seek agencies that:
Have been in business
at least five to 10 years
and have no unresolved
consumer complaints
with the Better Business
Bureau (www.bbb.org).
Charge reasonable
fees that are spelled out
in writing.
Will waive or reduce
fees for the financially
destitute.
Offer personalized ad-
vice tailored to your sit-
'uation. i
Don't pay their em-
ployees on commission
(potential conflict of in-
terest).
Don't automatically
steer you into a debt
management plan
(DMP) many people
don't need a DMP un-
less their situation is
truly dire.
Don't make out-

Counselor's Corner


By: Paula G. Williamns, HCHS Middle
Grades Guidance Counselor

VOTE!VOTE!VOTE! is the buzz at
HCHS! The students who were eligi-
ble to pre-register and register to vote
were very excited about this opportu-
nity on last Tuesday when Supervisor
of Elections Laura Deas came out.
They actually registered right on site
as the young students looked on. It is
so important to make sure our stu-
dents understand the importance of
voting and exercising the right to
have their voices heard through their
VOTE. This is a civic responsibility.
and students have been given the
chore of reminding all eligible voters
in their families to get out and vote on
November 4th. If you want your vote
to count, make sure you cast your
vote!
The character word for the month
of September is honesty exhibiting
truthfulness and integrity sincere
and fair. Please involve your children
in "family talk" regarding the impor-
tance of honesty and the impact it has
on our lives. Remember, "truth is like
the sun. You can shut it out for a
time, but it is not going away." ,
Good fortunes are being found dai-
ly on the super highway at HCHS!
Make no mistake, we are serious
about educating our youth and pro-
viding a climate that is conducive to
learning. We are into the second part
of the first grading period and we en-
courage students to work harder a'nd
smarter to complete this nine weeks
on a successful note. Mr. Howell takes
the time to talk to any student, parent,
etc. at any time if there is a problem
or concern.
Congratulations to all of the stu-
dents, coaches and families involved
in our athletic program. You are all


winners because you participate. We
applaud the extra sacrifice it takes to
practice, go to ballgames and keep up
with school work. Please get involved
with the extracurricular programs and
help your school district grow.
ROTC will sponsor a carwash on
Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8 a.m. until 1
p.m. It will be held in the Jasper
Foodway parking lot and the group
will accept all donations. For more in-
formation, please contact Ssgt.
Spencer Loften.
A group from Hamilton High will
be traveling to Atlanta to see the Fal-
cons take on the Chicago Bears on
Sunday, Oct. 12. This is a wonderful
opportunity for our students, parents
and others to see Hamilton graduate,
Chicago Bears' Alex Brown on the
professional football gridiron. We
hope this motivation effort will en-
couiage students to think, dream and
perform big in and out of the class-
room. Work hard now and it will pay
off later. Coach Al Nelson is the coor-
dinator of the trip.
Please keep.the mothers of our staff
members, Mrs. Hobbs and Lt. Col.
'Davis in your thoughts. They are both
recuperating very well after hospital
stays. Mrs. Connie Burnam lost her
son last week and we ask that you
keep this family in your thoughts as
well.
Feel free to stop on the HCHS super
highway at any time. We would love
to have you visit your child's class-
room and get more. of a feel for the
learning, that takes place.in our day.
Come by room #127 at Hamilton
County High School if I can be of as-
sistance to you or please don't hesitate
to call me at 792-6540 or email me at
Williamsp2@firn.edu.
Guidance serving children in an"
awesome way every day!

Save money on medications


By Jason Alderman

Between skyrocketing
prescription drug prices,
rising insurance copay-
ments and an aging
,population; it's not sur-
prising more and more
people are having, diffi-
culty paying for their
medications.
If that sounds like you
or someone you know,
here are a few money-
saving tips:
Generic drugs by law
must conform to strict
Food and Drug Admin-
istration guidelines for
quality, strength, purity
and stability. Generics
usually cost a fraction of
brand-name counter-
parts, and many insyr-
ance plans assign them
significantly lower co-
payments. Ask your
doctor or pharmacist if
generic equivalents exist
fof your medications.
Many insurers en-
courage ordering rou-
tinely taken drugs in
larger quantities from
mail-order pharmacies.
For example, a 90-day
supply of blood-pres-
sure medication might
have the same copay-
ment as a 30- or 60-day
supply. Multiply that by
several drugs over a
year and savings could
really add up.
Because prices often
vary widely, call or
check Websites of sever-
al pharmacies, including
online-only chains, to
find the best deal. In ad-
dition to your doctor,
make sure at least one
pharmacist is aware of
all medications you take
(including over-the- '
counter) to prevent acci-
dental drug interactions;
and use only online
pharmacies certified by
the National Association
of Boards of Pharmacy


(http: / /vipps.nabp.net/
verify.asp).
Many drugs come in
double-dosage tablets
that cost close to or the
same as a lower dosage.
By splitting the larger
dosage in half, you can
get two doses for the
price of one. Caution:
Many pills should never
be split, including time-
release and coated med-
ications, so always ask
your'doctor or pharma-
cist first.
Most pharmaceutical
companies offer patient
assistance programs
(PAPs) that provide
uninsured and low-in-
come people access to'
prescription drugs they
couldn't otherwiseiaf-
ford. There's lots of pa-
perwork, but you can
save hundreds or thou-
sands of dollars if you
meet their eligibility re-
quirements.
Ask your doctor,
pharmacist or health
clinic how to proceed,
or visit Partnership for
Prescription Assistance.
(www.pparx.org),
which has enrollment
information on more
than 475 public and pri-
vate PAPs, including'
links to Medicaid pro-
grams. Also helpful are
RxAssist (www.rxas-
sist.org), NeedyMeds
(www.needymeds.com)
and Consumer Reports,
which explains how
PAPs work (at
www.crbestbuydrugs.or
g, click on "Prescription
Drug Assistance Pro-
grams").
Medicare beneficiaries
can sign up for
Medicare Part D, which
provides prescription
drug coverage through
dozens of plans offered
by private insurers.
Monthly premiums, co-
payment amounts, out-


of-pocket limits and
drugs covered under
the plans vary consider-
ably, so you'll need to
be very careful when
choosing the best plan
for your situation. Read
the information at
www.nMedicare.gov/pd
phome.asp for guidance,
on choosing the right
plan. Another good re-
source is AARP's com-
prehensive guide to
Medicare at
www.aarp.org/health/
medicare.
Note that extra assis-
tance with premium
payments is available to
low-income people.
And, unless you turn 65
or otherwise become eli-
gible for Medicare dur-
ing the year (for exam-
ple, through a qualify-
ing disability), you'll
need to wait for next
year's open enrollment
period in mid-Novem-,
ber to join.
If your employer of-
fers a health care flexi-
ble spending account
(FSA), sign up. You can
use pretax dollars to
pay for prescription and
over-the-counter med-
ications, as well as other
healthcare-related ex-
penses, reducing your
taxable income and
thereby lowering your
taxes substantially. To
learn how FSAs work,
visit Visa's free personal
financial management
site, Practical Money
Skills for Life

moneyskills.com/bene-
fits.)
Don't let your health
suffer because of high
medication costs.

Going batty?

Myth-takes about bats


Submitted

Bats have a reputation
for being evil and dan-
gerous. According to
The Old Farmer's Al-
manac for Kids, Volume
2, they are social ani-
mals and harmless (to
humans).
Bats are flying ro-
dents: Bats are mam-
mals the only mam-
mals that can fly but
they are not rodents.
Bats are blind: "Blind
as a bat" is an-expres-
sion that creates a false
impression. Bats are not
blind. They see better
during nighttime but
only in black and white,
like many other ani-
mals.
All bats carry rabies:


Bats are no more likely
to carry rabies than any
other wild animal. In
the United States, rabid
bats are the cause of just
one death per year, on
average. Worldwide, ra-
bid dogs account for 99
percent of the deaths
due to rabies.
Bats will swoop down
and get caught in your
hair: Only in the
movies. They swoop in
flight not to attack, but
because their wings are
structured differently
than birds' wings. Bats
are afraid of humans
and just war\t to be left
alone to hunt for food,
feed their young, and
sleep.
Bats are dirty: Bats are
cleaner than many kids!

THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL





CUT: Cadet 2nd Lietuenant Garden (Photo Submitted)

By Cadet 2nd Lieutenant Carden

(During the summer of 2008, I attended a joint
Naval Sea Cadet-Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps program at Eglin AFB. The program, known
as aviation ground school, was 12 days long and
consisted of multiple activities focusing on flight.
The curriculum covered articles such as weather
patterns, basic aerodynamics, flight communica-


tion, airspace classification, preflight planning and
many other topics. The program was mentally rig-
orous and days often lasted 14+ hours when study-
ing was involved. Though the course was extreme-
ly demanding, it also was extremely rewarding. As
a student there, I was given the opportunity to
make three flights racking up a total of one and
one half flight hours and three total hours in the
cockpit. Cadets came from all around to attend this
program and the very best from their home units
were sent to represent their unit. In total, approxi-
mately 30 cadets attended the program along with
several instructors. Everyone passed this year and I
proudly graduated with an "outstanding cadet"
' award fro placing second in the program. .
The typical day at AGS would begin with the
alarm clock symphony of "AAANT AAANT
AAANT AAANT." Once everything was collected,
my roommate and I awaited room inspection and,
once dismissed, ran down to the assembly pavil-
ion. After all' room inspections were complete, the .
group marched to the mess hall for breakfast. Fol-
lowing breakfast, the group was on the move yet
again to the classroom. By 8 p.m., we were learn-
ing the textbook portion of flying.
Following each class a five minute break was is-
sued and a mad dash to the restrooms and coffee
machine ensued. By the second day at lunch,
everyone had consumed a minimum of 10 cups of
coffee or they had fallen asleep during class. To en-


sure teamwork, nearly everything was done as a
flight; this included marching to lunch. Several
more classes were taken and much more was
learned before supper. Upon return a few more
classes were held and, by 8 p.m., a quiz was is-
sued.
Following the quiz, a test was issued and scored.
After this, class was dismissed and two flights
were formed, the first flight and the running flight.
Of course anyone full of energy and dying to get
back to their room were in this flight. Of course
anyone full of energy and dying to get back to
their room were in this flight, along with anyone,
else just wanting to run. Every night for 12 nights,
anyone between the class room and the dorm was
treated to the sight of about 12 kids running in for-
mation and calling Jodies (a way to keep people on
step and give people an excuse to shout in forma-
tion) at the top of their lungs. Once we got to the
rooms, we studied for a few hours, hit the sack,
and woke up the next day ready to do it again.
In the second week, I flew and made my first
landing. I also took off from Eglin and landed in
Destin. The whole experience of AGS was memo-
rable. Many people made friendships, learned a
new skill and were able to experience the wonder-
ful world of flight.
I'd like to thank Lt. Colonel Davis and my par-
ents for all of their support and arranging every-
thing.


Schools receive supplies for

homeless program


Several area schools, including
Hamilon County schools, Lafayette
County Schools and Suwannee Coun-
ty Schools recently received back-
packs and school supplies for the
schools' homeless program, which
serves students who are considered
homeless under various criteria.
Feed The Children, an international
relief organization delivered 1,600
backpacks, which were filled with
school supplies, non-perishable food
and personal care items and books.
The organization distributed the sup-
plies at Suwannee County. Schools
Materials Center.
H.E.L.P., Homeless Education and
Literacy Program, an outreach pro-
gram of Feed The Children, has part-
nered with the National Association
for the Education of Homeless Chil-
dren and Youth (NAEHCY) to dis-
tribute backpacks to children in need.
Feed The Children distributed 80,000
backpacks across the nation during
the 2007-2008 school year and plans
to distribute 100,000 in 2008-2009
school year.
"We believe in the power of educa-
tion to reduce and reverse the cycle of
poverty," says Larry Jones, president
and co-founder of Feed The Children.
"Providing homeless school children
with 'survival items' such as school
,supplies, hygiene items and food help
meet immediate physical needs. It
also helps secure our long-term hope
for these children: that they will excel
at school and 'eventually break free
from a life of poverty."
Lisa McKinley, Suwannee County
School's Homeless Liaison, would
like to thank the following for their
efforts during the delivery: Suwannee
County School employees who
worked above and beyond their regu-
lar duties: Mark Carver, Bill Yanossy,
Mike Johnson, George Langford and
Matt Hingson. Volunteers from sur-
rounding counties: Bob Sansouci
from Live Oak, Reese Thomas from
4Lee, Sarah Koon and MaryAnne Mc-
Cray's family from Lafayette.

About the homeless program
Every Child has a right to an educa-


tion., If, due to a loss of housing, a
child must live in a shelter, motel, ve-
hicle, or campground, on the street; in
abandoned buildings, or doubled-up
with relatives or friends, then he/she
is eligible to receive services provided
under the McKinney-Vento Act.
The McKinney-Vento Education for
Homeless Children and Youth Pro-
gram is designed to address the prob-
lems that homeless. children and
youth have faced in enrolling, attend-
ing, and succeeding in school. Under
this program, Suwannee County
Schools must ensure that each home-
less child and youth has equal access
to the same free, appropriate public
education, including a public
preschool education, as other chil-
dren and youth.
Homeless children and youth must
have access to the educational and
other services, that they need to en-
able them to meet the same challeng-
ing State student academic achieve-
ment standards to which all students
are held. In addition, homeless stu-
dents may not be separated from the
mainstream school environment.

About Feed The Children
Founded in 1979 by Larry and
Frances Jones, Feed The Children is
consistently ranked as one of the 10
largest international charities in the
U.S., based on private, non-govern-
ment support. Feed The Children is a
Christian, international, nonprofit re-
lief organization with headquarters in
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, that de-
livers food, medicine, clothing and'
other necessities to individuals, chil-
dren and families who lack these es-

or natural disasters. In FY 2007, Feed
The Children distributed more than
135 million pounds of food and other
essefitials to children and their fami-
lies, in all 50 states and international-
ly, supplementing almost 800,000
meals each day. Since its founding,
the organization has reached out to
help those in need in 118 countries
around the globe. For more informa-
tion, please visit www.feedthechil-

NHE participates in Summer Reading


North Hamilton Elementary's Second graders were given an assignment over the summer.
Students had a goal of reading thirty books and keep a log with the name of the books and
the author. The students that brought in their logswere given treat bags. Thanks to Chick-
fil-a in Lake Park, Jennings Library, and Alliance and Associates for their support of our
students by donating items for the treat bags. Reading 30 books is quite an accomplish-
ment! (Photo Submitted)




Teen's behavior may


indicate alcohol use


Submitted

Though recent stud-
ies have suggested teen
drinking is on the de-
cline, this information
is not enough for some
parents. Some parents
have started using a
urine test that can de-
tect alcohol consump-
tion up to 80 hours ear-
lier, by screening for'
ethyl glucuronide, a
substance produced by
the body when it me-
tabolizes alcohol.
While the ethics of:
such tests remain ques-
tionable to some, the
larger issue at hand is
the" apparent continuing
concern of parents.
They need not rely on
urine tests, however, to
determine whether or
not their child is abus-
ing or experimenting
with alcohol. Several
indicators can give a
parent a good idea as to'
a child's experience
with alcohol.
Physical warning
signs: As the American
Academy of Child and
Adolescent Psychiatry
(AACAP) points out,
teenagers exhibit many
of the same signs of al-
cohol abuse as adults.
Most notably, teens get
hangovers, too. Fatigue
is a notable side effect,
as are red or glazed
over eyes. Complaints
about health and even
persistent coughing can
also indicate alcohol


consumption.
Emotional warning
signs: It's no secret al-
cohol is a depressant,
and for many people,
teens and adults alike,
depression and low
self-esteem are common
side effects of over-con-
sumption. Sudden
mood swings, often
characterized by irri-
tability, and indiffer-
ence toward previous
interests are common
among teenage alcohol
abusers as well.
Familial warning
signs: Teenagers abus-
ing alcohol typically
withdraw from their
families, and may be
prone to starting argu-
ments as well. With
most teenagers, howev-
er, these are normal is-
sues and do not neces-
sarily indicate alcohol
abuse. Such a fine line
means parents need to
be careful when dis-
cussing such problems
with their child.
Social warning signs:
Changes in wardrobe
and other interests, typ-
ically when such
changes move toward
more. unconventional
styles, can be indicative
of both drug or alcohol
abuse. Again, this is a
fine line, as these be-
haviors could also have
nothing to do with
drug or alcohol abuse,
and might just be part
of growing up. Howev-
er, social problems in-


volving trouble with
the law or new friends
who could be negative
influences, should not
be ignored and the top-
ic of drug or alcohol
abuse needs to be
broached. .'
Academic warning
signs: While a sudden
drop in grades might
be harder to notice
right away since report
cards are not sent out
on a weekly basis, other
academic problems,
such as frequent ab-
sences- or truancy or
even disciplinary issues
that never used to arise,
are common among
teens who abuse alco-
hol. Should grades
drop dramatically in
addition to any of the
aforementioned prob-
lems, parents should
take action.
Exactly what. action
to take is up to parents.
AACAP recommends
seeking the advice of a
physician and ruling
out physical causes
first. Just because a teen
is exhibiting physical
warning signs of alco-
hol abuse doesn't mean
the teen is abusing alco-
hol. Once a physician
has been consulted,
AACAP recommends a
comprehensive evalua-
tion by a child and ado-
lescent psychiatrist. To
learn more about
teenagers and alcohol,
visit the AACAP web
site at www.aacap.org.

Healthy kids, naturally


Keeping kids and teens healthy can be a challenge during the busy school year. In
fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that nearly 22 million
school days are lost annually due to the common cold alone.
Fortunately, there are some simple, and natural, things parents can do to help kids'
stay healthy and energized for all their activities.
Hygiene. The CDC says that the single most important thing you can do to keep
from getting sick is to wash your hands. When there's not sink and soap around, use
natural hand sanitizers-wipes or gel-with 100 percent pure essential oils.
Nutrition. Growing bodies and brains need fiber and nutrients to stay healthy. A
child's health can suffer from too few of these good things.and too many sugary,
highly processed foods.
The USDA Food Guide Pyramid recommends nine servings of fruits and vegetables
a day. One serving size of fruits and veggies for children equals one of the following:
1/2 cup juice
1 cup raw leafy salad greens
1/2 cup chopped raw, canned or cooked fruit or other vegetable
Essential fatty acids, particularly omega-3s, are crucial for development and health
of the brain, heart, nervous system, tissues, skin and immune system, especially for
school-age children. DHA can be found in fatty cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel
and tuna, and in DHA-enriched products like eggs and milk.
What about nutritional supplements? If kids and teens are actually eating nine
servings of colorful fruits and veggies-plus foods containing all the other
recommended daily nutrients-every day, then they probably don't need them. But with
picky eaters, tight schedules, food allergies and more, they don't often get what they
need. In these,cases, supplements might be a good idea. But be careful. While it's
easy to find a fun and fruity multivitamin that kids don't mind, taking each day, it's the
nutrients they need, not loads of sugar or artificial colors and flavors.
Rest. Rest, relaxation and sleep are key for handling stress. While moderate stress is
normal, the demands of school life can cause stress overload for youngsters and
adolescents-and their parents and teachers! Be sure to schedule in downtime and
allow for adequate sleep when you're planning the week.
Kids need more sleep than you might think.
3-6 years old: 10 3/4-12 hours per day
7-12 years old: 10-11 hours per day
12-18 years old: 81/4-91/2 hours per day
Stomachaches, nervousness, trouble sleeping, anger flares or infections may be
signs, of stress. Fortunately, there are plenty of safe, effective ways, to- handle it.
Breathing deep. exercising, stretching, physical play and homeopathic remedies may'-
help-- *- -
If you would like to know more about natural ways to help your kids stay healthy,
the Whole Body Team Members at Whole Foods Market are well educated about all
of the products they offer and are happy to answer questions.
