Charting a course to
help Hamilton County
High students succeed
By Jo Ross
Hamilton County High School Administrators in
conjunction with the Hamilton County School Board and
Southern Regional Education Board, are looking for
solutions to the problems that face middle and high school
students in Hamilton County.
For the 2006-07 school year HCHS produced a 67.7
percent high school graduation rate in other words, a 32.3
percent drop out rate.
,"This statistic is just not acceptable," Principal Maceo
Howell said at a meeting of concerned parties at HCHS
recently. "We have got to work together to find some
method to encourage all students to succeed." Howell, a
30-year education veteran, replaced former principal Gene
Starr at the beginning of the 2008-09 school term.
Assistant Principal Wanda Law also began the current
school year at HCHS with high hopes for a turn-around of
the conceptual ideas currently possessed by our students.

HISTORY

more important than political party or
philosophical thought. Our prayers should be
that our nation is and does what the Almighty
would have it do. We should pray that President
Obama seeks to do, not what is politically
expedient, but what is best for the country. His
action should be judged by that standard, that he
make the difficult right decision instead of the
easy wrong one, and that he act without regard
for appearances or national and international
popularity. He will not be ableto please
everybody, but if he does what's best for our
nation he will be protecting and serving all of the
world."

Rhett Bullard, a Democrat, supported Obama:
"People wanted fundamental change and
Obama was able to amass millions of people to
embrace that idea. I think the Democrats found
their ground game again."

Vernon McCoy:
"My problem with the election falls mainly
with the media. Our national media did not
follow-up and investigate any of the major
allegations against President-elect Obama and
his obvious personal relationships with terrorist
and America haters. This should've been
investigated. The majority of those who voted for
the Democratic candidate didn't have a clue
about the issues."

Emily Lumpkin:
"I believe President-elect Obama is a driving
force for public education. He is a prime example
of the opportunities we have herein America. It's
'proof that, no matter what hand life has dealt
you, you can still work hard and make it to the
'top."

Realizing the need for change, the current
administrative staff, along with members of the
Florida Department of Education, Southern
Regional Education Board (SREB), FLaRE,
Madison County High School staff, High Schools
that Work (HSTW), parents, community members
and the students have all engaged in an in-depth
evaluation of many of the practices and
procedures currently being utilized at HCHS.
The Technical Assistance Visit Team (TAV)
discussed perceived problem areas, current
measures to address problem areas, teaching
techniques, and teacher, student and parental
perceptions of the school as a whole. Ideas were
then formulated'for improvement.
While numerous positive aspects were observed
and noted by the team, there is always room for
improvement. Hamilton County High School's
"D" grade, given by the state of Florida, is proof of
that.
By looking at what is now being done, what
state standards require, what other high schools
having better success are doing, and what we lack,
a highly effective improvement plan can be
generated and implemented to ensure our children
have the best possibilities available for success, say
officials.
The final report is due be delivered to the school
in the near future. In his preliminary report given
on Nov. 12, Robert "Bob" Moore, of HSTW,
enumerated five recommendations that the team
believes would make substantial impact on
improvement:
(1) Set clear expectations of students each class
having a clearly defined expectation for course
work, work ethics and the ability for a student to
re-do work they may have problems with. All
classes and teachers should be cohesive allowing
for a better transition from class to class and grade
level to grade level.
(2) Engage all students in rigorous, relevant,


engaging and meaningful learning. Course
descriptions that are clearly indicative of
expectations should be developed and published
immediately.
(3) Develop a supportive culture of continuous
improvement. School leadership and teachers
should be actively involved in School
Improvement Planning (SIP).
(4) Teach a solid academic core. Implementation
of a common planning time for instructional
departments would allow teachers to become more
cohesive in transition from one subject to another.
This would allow students to follow a "learning
thought" throughout the day in between subjects.
(5) Set clear, functional, believable "Goals" and
develop a "Mission Statement." Emphasizing the
imperative need to increase the student retention
rate for 9th grader retention, would enable our
high school students to set attainable goals for
graduation.
To assist HCHS in reaching and maintaining
these objectives, a coach has been assigned to the
high school to be on hand to answer any question
staff may have regarding the fluid implementation
and interactions of these goals.
"The best advice I can give is, build a culture in
which students want to work hard and succeed,"
-Moore told HCHS representatives.

ettef Of ter here in White Springs. Seems ,
w ae like a bad move to me since nature
an and heritage tourism is the hot
& i*t thing both nationally and interna-
tionally, and for good reason too.
NAture and heritage tourism protects,
what else of course?..... Florida's nature
and heritage that is so much more important
than our amusement parks and man made tourists
attractions. This special tourism builds an aware-
ness of how fragile and special our place and bur,
past is. When a family has budget problems, if
they care about themselves and who they really
are, they don't throw out their photo albums or
their special places to "economize." These are the
things we should hold on to. If you care about
these things, don't be complacent, don't be the per-
son that wakes up one morning to discover that anr-
other part of your town, your Florida, has been
"temporarily" closed, possibly never to open again.
By the time you read this I'll be back in town,

Lung Cancer Awareness


Submitted
Lung cancer is the.
leading cancer killer in
both men and women in
the United States. In
1987, it surpassed breast
cancer to become the
leading cause of cancer
deaths in women. Over
400 people living in the
Big Bend region have
been diagnosed with
lung cancer.
The best way to help
prevent and fight lung
cancer is to stay informed
and take action. See your
doctor, quit smoking and
have your home checked
for radon, the leading
cause of lung cancer
among non-smokers.
The American Lung
Association is a leader in
the fight against lung


cancer and its major
cause smoking. We are
a trusted source for edu-
cational material and
programs on the preven-
tion and treatment of
lung cancer. Our smok-
ing cessation programs
have helped smokers
quit for nearly 30 years.
We advocate for public
policies that reduce to-
bacco use, and in particu-
lar, that keep tobacco
products out of the hands
of children. The Lung As-
sociation is proud to sup-
port National Lung Can-
cer Awareness Month,
and encourages all
Americans to take time to
learq about the deadliest
of cancers and join us in
the fight for a cure. "My
grandfather passed away


from lung cancer, he was
a heavy smoker. My way
of honoring him is to
make sure I do my part to
help keep tobacco out of
the hands of youth," says
Patty Ballantine, Region-
al Director for The Amer-
ican Lung Association of
Florida.
You can help our ef-
forts by making a dona-
tion in memory of some-
one you know who has
passed away from lung
cancer. Support our mis-
sion, to prevent lung dis-
ease and promote lung
health, become involved
in the fight against-lung
cancer.

FoTinded ini 1916 to
fight tuberculosis, the


American Lung Associa-
tion of Florida is the lead
organization in the state
working to prevent lung
disease and promote
lung health. Lung disease
death rates continue to
increase while other
leading causes of death

Nov. 21 27 with Hamilton County Farm Bureau


Damon Deas, president of Hamilton County Farm Bureau is congratulated
by John Hoblick, president of Florida Farm Bureau. Hamilton County Farm
Bureau received the President's Award for 2008.

S What does Farm-City Week

mean to Hamilton County?
Hamilton County Farm Bureau is pleased to recognize
F IM CTY Nov. 21- 27 as Farm-City Week.
On the seven days leading to and including Thanksgiving
Day, Farm-City Week is celebrated nationwide. What are we
celebrating? The American economy is strong thanks to the interdependence of
farms and cities.
Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation. Instead, the interdepend-
ence of the two creates jobs, products, markets and relationships that make our econ-
omy and nation strong. Join with us in recognizing Hamilton County agricultural
producers and allied industries and the contributions they make to the economy.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let's remember the vital farm-city partner-
ships that have done so much to improve the quality of our lives. Rural and urban
communities working together have made the most of our rich agricultural resources,
and have made significant contributions to our health and
Swell-being and to the strength of our nation's economy.
S For this, we can give thanks.

Farm Bureau is hosting a breakfast for local
officials and other guests. Hamilton

HCHS students visit FAMU


By Paula Williams
A group of high
school students traveled
to Florida A&M Univer-
sity on last Saturday to
witness the Rattlers de-
feat the Hampton, Vir-
ginia Pirates. There was
much excitement on the
campus with ESPN
:'-hosting Game Day. This
is the first time ESPN
.has appeared on a his-
torically Black universi-
ty and football fever
was definitely in the air.
;.,The crowd listened to
the ESPN commentators
"talk about football hap-
penings today and the
crowd rallied for our
beloved University. The
MIarching 100 excited
the crowd along with
'the cheerleaders and


Creeks. President lames
I1. Ammons mingled in
the crowd meeting and
greeting everyone. The
kids had a chance to
walk through the cam-
pus and hear some no-
table facts about FAMU
and some of the many
local graduates. They
enjoyed the football
game, vendors, and
everything the day had
to offer. Throughout the
ride home they ex-
pressed their thanks
and talked about differ-
ent facets of the day.
The students requested
that they get to go see
the Rattlers and Semi-
noles play next season
and we will have to do
what we can to make it
happen.

NHE Book Character Day


By Beth Burnain

North Hamilton Ele-
mentary School held its
second annual "Book
Character Day" on Fri-
day, Oct. 31. Mrs. Bren-
da Caddy, reading
coach, and Mrs.
Michelana Byrd, fourth
grade teacher, coordi-
nated the event and en-
couraged all students to
choose a favorite charac-
ter from a book and
dress as that character.
The students were also
required to have the
books to accompany
their portrayals of char-
acters. Participation
was overwhelming with
some classes having
100% of the students
dressed as book charac-
ters.


book to Mrs. Beth Bur-
nam, and show off the
outfit as the name of the
character and name of
the book were an-
nounced by Mrs. Bur-
nam. Three top students
with the most outstand-
ing costumes were cho-
sen from each home-
room, and these three
students had the honor
of entering the stage be-
fore others from their
room. The three top stu-
dents from each room
were treated to a snow
cone on Friday after-
noon.
The activity was a
huge success and was
'both fun and education-
al for students. Several
teachers joined in the
fun and vividly por-
trayed characters in
popular books. NHE
plans to continue "Book
Character Day" next
year and watch as it
continues to expand and
increase student aware-
ness of books and the
joy of reading.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris

As I wrote this column this week, it is
after I'have been told to let at least one
faucet dripping tonight, the temperature
is supposed to go down to low 20's, so I
will do that, IT IS COLD now. I have just
returned from the annual meeting at
Suwannee Valley Nursing Center, which
is always a good evening, the food is su-
perb and the news is good, the Center is
doing well, and if you should stop by for
a visit you will see a place filled with
loving and cheerful people. Yes, some
are not really well, but I get a lift every
time I go there, residents and staff are-al-
most all upbeat most of the time.
Several families from Jasper Presbyter-
ian Church attended the surprise party
(his 60th) for Rev. Bill Platt, former pas-
tor of the Church, and a friend to many
here. It was held on November 1, at
Jekyll Island, Ga., where he now a Pres-
byterian Pastor.*The food was delicious,
entertainment great. Attending from

Build Your Hopes On Things Eternal


Did You

Know?
Though turkey on
Thanksgiving might seem
like the most American of
traditions, chances are the
United States at least indi-
rectly owes one of their
more beloved traditions to
the country's roots in Eng-
land. While there's no ab-
solute way of knowing
why the Pilgrims sate
down to a turkey dinner
way back when, one theo-
ry dates back to England's
queen Elizabeth choosing
roast. goose for a harvest
festival in the 1600s. Upon
learning that the Spanish
Armada had sunk, the
queen then ordered a sec-
ond goose, and a new tra-
dition was born. Roast
goose then became'the fa-
vorite bird during Eng-
land's harvest time. As
they theory goes, upon ar-
riving in what eventually
became the United States,
the Pilgrims looked to
continue the "fowl" tradi-
tion in their new land.
However, geese proved
elusive in the Pilgrims'
new home, while wild
turkeys were more abun-
dant and much easier to
find. So while the.tradition
of eating turkey .on
Thanksgiving might seem
as American as apple pie,
this theory suggests it's ac-
tually deeply rooted in
English history.

Wilson Family and Southern

Rukus to play during

Thanksgiving weekend


The Wilson Family Bluegrass Band
will be the featured group Friday
night, Nov. 28 in the Music Hall after
Thanksgiving at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak.
The group will also play on Saturday

Nov. 29, at the SOSMP.
' Southern Rukus, a top notch coun-
try band, will be shaking the rafters
on Saturday night, Nov. 29, in the
Music Hall
The Wilson Family, a family of four
with a cousin thrown in for good
measure, takes real pleasure in play-
ing guitar, fiddle, banjo, bass and
mandolin, the main tools of bluegrass
music. And, they're all .extremely
good at what they do. When they
strike out on a tune, it's toe-tapping
time with lots of clapping thrown in,
spiced up with some old tyme moun-
tain clogging if you've still got the
urge and physical ability! The
Wilsons also sing gospel and will
have you joining in on your favorites.
Hailing from Georgia, the Wilsons
are making a return appearance at
the SOSMP, having played this venue
before to the delight of their many


fans. The group consists of Robert on
: vocals and guitar, his wife Melissa on
mandolin, children Clint on fiddle
and Katie on fiddle and the Wilson's
nephew, Blake Gowen on bass.
Southern Rukus combines' talents
from all musical spectrums spanning
from Southern rock and country and
blues featuring both acoustic and
electric styles for a unique sound un-
like any other band in the state of
Florida. The band is known for per-
forming high-energy interactive sets
of their own songs'and select covers
of influential bands. Southern Rukus
is often compared to artists such as
Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, Travis
Tritt and Diamond Rio.
Plan now to spend the weekend at
the SOSMP, enjoy Thanksgiving din-
ner ($5 and you bring a covered dish,
you don't have to wash dishes ei-
ther!), Old Tyme Farm Days and En-
gine Show Nov. 28-29 ($10 per car-

plays) opening Nov. 29.

Following.- the induc-
tions; guest speaker and
NFCC history instructor
David Paulk shared with
the students and their
supporting audience
what he believed makes
a great leader.
"Leaders can be found
in many different areas,"
said Paulk.' "But the
most important factor in
leadership is others;
thinking of others."
Paulk said that it is the
little things that make a'
difference. Quoting John
Maxwell, he told the stu-


dents to perform small
acts of kindness, to walk
slowly through the
crowd in order to con-
nect with people and to
move into action and get
involved.
"We can't accomplish
anything without the
contributions of' others,"
said Paulk. "A leader
will become a better
leader if :they learn to
value others and take the
time to show them so."
. A reception was held
immediately following
the ceremony,


Prepaid cards provide

alternative to cash or checks


By Jason Alderman

Tens of millions of Americans don't
have access to checking accounts or
credit cards, which can make it diffi-
cult for them to cash their payroll or
government-provided benefit checks,
pay bills, withdraw cash and shop
online or by phone. It also forces'
many to carry large amounts of cash'
and to utilize extremely expensiIve
check-cashing services.
An increasingly popular alternative
,known as prepaid cards has helped
fill this void. Prepaid cards look and
work much like debit cards, except
that instead of drawing money from
a checking or savings account bal-
ance, they are funded by money de-
posited into an account by cash,
check, funds transfer or direct deposit
by an employer or government enti-
ty.
Prepaid cards share many of the at-
tributes and advantages of debit
cards, including: They're safer to car-
ry than large amounts of cash. If
branded with a logo like Visa, they
can be used anywhere that brand is
accepted. Spending is limited td the
amount in the account, helping keep
debt in check. Many can be used to
withdraw cash from ATMs or to \
make online or phone purchases.
Many are covered by Zero Liability
protection if lost or stolen.
Among the more common types of
prepaid cards are:
Reloadable cards to which more
money can later be added.
Gift cards which can be used until
their balance is depleted; gift cards'
are not reloadable.
Teen cards where parents can re-
load the cards and monitor purchases
online or by phone (allowing teens a
chance to manage Travel cards -
which offer a safe alternative to cash
and travelers checks.'
Payroll cards where your pay is


loaded into the card's account for im-
mediate access (similar to checking'
account direct deposit).
Government agency-provided
cards where benefits such as Social
Security, unemployment and child
support payments are. loaded into
your card account.
Flexible Spending Account (FSA)
cards where your eligible expenses
are deducted from your FSA account
balance at the point of service, elimi-
nating the need to pay cash up front
and submit reimbursement forms.
Certain fees and restrictions may
apply, so it's important to read the
card's terms and conditions carefully.
Here are a few questions you may
want to ask when comparing cards:'
What identification do I need to ob-
tain this card? Where can I use it?
(Certain retailers only? Online?
Phone?) Can I add funds to it later? If
so, how? Is there an expiration date?
Will I receive monthly statements
and is there a charge? Can I check
balances by phone or online? What, if
any, fees are charged to activate the
card, add funds, check balances,
make ATM or bank withdrawals, for
monthly service or for not using the
card regularly? What happens if it's
lost or stolen? I
It's important to remember that you
need to manage prepaid cards just as
you would cash in the bank, by
avoiding spending what you can't af-
ford. To learn more about prepaid
cards, check out the brochure pre-
pared by Practical Money Skills for
Life, Visa Inc.'s free personal financial
management site (www.practical-
moneyskills.com/prepaidcards).
For those people who don't have
access to a traditional bank account,
prepaid cards can be a helpful finan-
cial management tool, when used
properly.

nancial education programs.

Homework help for children with learning disabilities


Each student learns differently from the next. Some may not grasp
concepts as easily as their classmates, or they may have different
interpretations of material. This does not mean that they do not have
the intelligence to succeed in school. Typically those classified as
having a learning disability have an average or above intelligence
but experience difficulty in processing information, Sometimes,
however, learning disabilities go undetected and students suffer.
Learning disabilities are something for which parents, teachers
and students must develop strategies. With plans of action, learning
disabled (LD) students can go on to engage in successful school
careers -- including college or other secondary educations.
However, without some special help, the results may be less
optimistic. Consider the following statistics.
The National Institutes of Health say that 75 to 80 percent of.
special education students identified as LD have their basic deficits
in language and reading. Thirty-five percent of students identified
with learning disabilities drop out of high school. This is twice the
rate of their non-disabled peers. A National Longitudinal Transition.
Study indicated that 62 percent of learning disabled students are
typically unemployed one year after graduation.
Working with LD students should begin early in a school career as
a collaborative effort between teachers and caregivers. One area in
which parents can do much good is with homework help. The
National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET)
offers these guidelines for working with LD students on homework.
Set up a homework schedule: Some children nhay need a little
guidance deciding on when is the best time to engage in homework.
If the task seems too overwhelming, it may simply be pushed aside.
Keep to the schedule as closely as possible.
Rank order assignments: Help children decide what assignments
should be tackled first. Subjects for which there is more difficulty
may be scheduled first because they will take the longest to get
through.
Leave children alone to complete their homework: Sitting next
to your child may create learned helplessness because the same
"assistance" is not imitated in the classroom. Parents serve their
children better by acting as a resource person to whom the child
may come with a problem.
Check correct problems first: When your child brings you a
paper to check; mention to him/her how well he/she did on the
correct problems, spelling words, etc. For the ones that are incorrect
say, "I bet if you go back and check these over you may get a
different answer."


Don't let homework linger all night: When an acceptable
amount of time has passed, and if
homework assignments aren't
complete, simply write a letter to
your child's teacher of the T -1
circumstances. Letting homework
drag on will only reinforce a LD HA L.
child's feelings of inadequacy. REHABILITATION SERVICES

Homework help can give students with learning disabilities the boost they need to
succeed.

Discuss homework problems before your child reads a chapter
or a part of coursework: This way' he or she knows what to expect
and look for.
Check problems in small batches: A LD child may benefit from
immediate gratification, which can be achieved by checking
homework in short intervals. Additionally, if the child is doing the
assignment 'incorrectly, the error can be detected and explained,
preventing your child from doing the entire assignment incorrectly.
Consider placing textbook chapters on tape: Research indicates
that the more sensory input children receive, the greater the chance
the information will be retained. For instance, parents can place
science or social studies chapters on tape so that the child ban listen
while reading along.
NASET also says that parents should always be awareof
symptoms indicating the possibility of more serious learning
problems, which may turn up when students tackle homework. Such
symptoms may include constant avoidance of homework, forgetting
to bring home assignments, taking hours to do homework,
.procrastination of class work, low frustration tolerance, labored
writing, poor spelling, etc. Consult with the teacher or a
psychologist to come up with new strategies.
