ever recorded in Florida.
The local dropout rate decreased,
however, falling from 5.1 percent
in 2006-07 to 4.4 percent in 2007-08.


The statewide rate was 2.6.

As the 2008 fundraising campaign draws
to a close for United Way of Suwannee
Valley, the Hamilton County Campaign
met at the PCS Conference Center, in White
Springs on Nov. 12.
Approximately 100 guests rallied to show
support for the efforts of contributors and
campaign workers by attending the
barbeque dinner. Updates were given from
local companies that have chosen to partner
with United Way to ensure funds are
available in the event of a local catastrophic
event. In addition to providing funding for
emergency circumstances, locally, United
Way' has partnered with numerous
agencies to provide funding for activities
they provide.
Such agencies include services to assist
the elderly, those who require assisted
living either for physical or mental
challenges, Boy and Girl Scouts, victims of
domestic violence and Guardian Ad Litem,
just to mention a few.
"Fifteen of the 23 United Way of
Suwannee Valley affiliated agencies
provide services to Hamilton County
families," noted Rita Dopp, executive
director United Way of Suwahnee Valley.
"United Way invites all of our community
members, individuals and businesses, to

recognizing when we help one, we help all
of our community."

A report

from

the chief
By Chief Ken Brookins,
Wiite Springs
Police Department

I hope this month's
report finds all of you
recovering nicely from
the fhanksgingg Da3ry
holiday. Our
community was pretty
quiet and I was able to
take a few days off to
rest up for December.
It is times like this that
I really appreciate the
people I work with I
am able to take time
off and know that the
town is well looked
after and that the
police department will
be run smoothly.
The town block party
hosted by Mr. and
Mrs. Miller was a huge
success. We had a
good turn out in spite
of the weather and had
several people to come
forward and offer to
help setting up our
neighborhood watch.
You will be hearing
more on this in the
very near future.
As we enter the
month of December I
would like to remind
all of you about some
of the things that the
police department will
be assisting with. On
Dec. 13, we have our
annual Breakfast with
Santa and.then the
Christmas Parade that
evening, ending with
the hot dog supper at
the Stephen Foster
Park. Along with the
Special Events
Committee we will
also be awarding

on this subject I would
like to request your

White Springs, the genesis of Florida Nature
Tourism, is experiencing a contradiction in that
hard times are presenting us with a unique op-
portunity. Times are getting harder here, just like
they are in many small towns, but as people look
for economic alternatives to more expensive and
distant tourism, White Springs has a lot to offer.
So there is a silver lining to this economic dark
cloud ... White Springs is still affordable!
Home of the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park, our town includes a splendid historic
district with several nice affordable:B&Bs. Our
antiquity is not polished or pretentious, but is
simply a result of our relative isolation from the
onslaught of, developmentt in Florida. Located on
the Suwannee.River, we are the beginning of-the,
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, as'well as a
gateway community for the Florida Trail. Hun-

I recently heard from Peggy Mar-
latt, formally Peggy Rudser, proudly
born and raised in Hamilton County.
She is the Membership Specialist for the
SGirl Scouts of Gateway Council, and she serves
all of the Girl Scouts in Hamilton, Suwannee and
Columbia counties. I'm not sure if you were
aware, but White Springs is home to the first Girl
Scout troop in the state of Florida, and the sec-
ond troop ever in the United States of America!
There is a memorial dedicated to the Girl Scouts
in the Stephen Foster State Park. Girl Scouts is. a
volunteer run organization. All troop leaders are
volunteers who share a common goal of wanting
to help girls discover their full potential, connect
with the world around them, and take action in
their communities. Girl Scouting builds girls of
courage, confidence and character, who make the
world a better place.
.Being a Hamilton County native, Peggy is very.
proud of the rich history Girl Scouts has in White
Springs! A troop was; formed last year but due to
personal reasons this troop has not been able to
re-group yet this year because it is in dire need
of the help of the White Springs community. If
you know of anyone who would be willing to
volunteer to lead these girls or assist with the
troop, please call Peggy Marlatt at 1-866-295-
1727.
I'm off to attend a cane grinding get together at
the invitation of the Stormant family and I will
tell you all about it next week. Until then, that's
life in White Springs.

Did You

Know?
Though it might seem
as though it's been
around forever, the
beloved holiday song
"Frosty the Snowman"
actually wasn't produced
until 1950. Written by
Jack Rollins and Steve
Nelson, the, song was
first recorded by leg-
endary country singer
Jack Autry and the Cass
County Boys. Once they
finished penning the
now classic Christmas
tune, Rollins and Nelson
shipped the lyrics to
Autry, who just a year
earlier achieved great
success with another hol-

Kenleigh Raigan Boone Crowned Wee Miss Honey Bee


By Jo Ross

The 27th Annual Hahira Honey Bee
Festival was held in October, in Hahi-
ra Georgia. Hamilton County's Ken-
leigh Raigan Boone, took the crown as
she competed as one of fifteen contes-
tants in the "Wee Miss" category.
Kenleigh is the six year old daugh-
ter of Lea Boone of Jennings and
Mark Boone, of Jasper. She is the
granddaughter of Richard and Janice
Stohlmann of Jennings and Kathy
Boone of Jasper.
In March of this year, she won the
Little Miss North Hamilton Elemen-
tary Title as a five year old Kinder-
gartener. The vivacious 1st grader, at
NHE told Jasper News, "I love being
in pageants. I'm going to be Miss
America when I'm old!" Kenleigh also
reports loving school, church and heri
family. When asked if she was afraid
to go stage, Kenleigh replied, "No,
everybody loves me and they know I
love them, too.".
The Honey Bee Pageant, which is


sponsored by the Hahira Lions Club,
Inc., is divided into five categories.
"Wee Miss" for contestants ages 4 6,
"Tiny Miss" for contestants ages 7 9,
"Little Miss" for contestants ages 9 -
12, "Junior Miss" for girls ages 13 15
and "Queen" contestants ages 16 23.
Kenleigh and her family would like
to thank those who helped sponsor
her for this fantastic event; Her par-
ents, grandparents, The daughter'of
Ercel and John Camp (in memorial),
Electric Sun Tanning, Lora and Jessi

ties and projects. Some of those in-
clude; Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc.,

cross, Georgia Eye Bank, Georgia
Lighthouse for the Blind, help local
needy with eyeglasses/exams, Sight

ers;

McCollum urges consumers to

shop smart this holiday season


Submitted
Attorney General Bill .
McCollum recently is-',
sued a consumer adviso-
ry encouraging Floridians
to do their homework be-
fore heading out to shop
this holiday season. Shop-
pers can avoid stress, po-
tential scams and over-
spending by planning in
advance and doing some
research on any new holi-
day-related scams and
potential pitfalls.
"Florida families will
be budget-focused this
holiday season, more so
than in recent years," said:
Attorney General McCol-
lum. "Consumers should
use sales to their advan-
tage, but be diligent
about buying from rep-
utable retailers to avoid ,
scams and post-holiday .
headaches."
One of the top tips this
year is to make a shop-
ping list ahead of time
and stick to a budget in
order to avoid excessive
debt. For consumers to
get the most for their
money, the Federal Trade
Commission recom-
mends the following:
Read sale ads carefully.
Some ads may say "quan-
tities limited," "no rain
checks," or "not available
at all stores." Call to

most recognizable, ver-
sion of "Frosty" for
many years, its success
in terms of charting was
actually outdone just a
year ago. The peak posi-
tion for Autry's original
version on the US. Pop
Singles chart was #7
back in 1950. However,
the 2007 rendition by
former American Idol
participant Kimberly
Locke reached #1 on the
Billboard U.S. Hot Adult
Contemporary chart.
The television adapta-
tion of "Frosty.the Snow-
man" remains a staple of
the television schedule
each holiday season.


make sure the item is
available. Look for price-
. matching policies. Some
merchants will match, or
even beat, a competitor's
price. Ask about sales ad-
justments.,If you buy an
Site that goes on sale the
next week, can you get a
credit or refund? The
Florida Retail Federation
also encouraged shoppers
to consider shopping lo-
cally.
"A good rule of thumb
for holiday shopping is to
Sbuy from people you
know and trust," said
Rick McAllister, President
and CEO of the Florida
Retail Federation. "Be
careful when buying
from internet firms that
do riot have a physical
store in Florida. Problems
can arise with any pur-
chase and it's always easi-
er to solve them with a
real person rather than a
website."
The Attorney General
also encouraged con-
sumers to make savvy
decisions if purchasing
gift cards this year. Al-
though gift-card, spend-
ing is expected to decline
nearly six percent this
year, according to the Na-
tional Retail Federation
gift cards still remain the
most requested gift, with
nearly 55 percent of re-
spondents in a recent sur-
vey saying they'd like to
receive a gift card. How-
ever, gift card purchases
can also lead to problems
if consumers are not care-
ful. Shoppers should con-
sider the following when
buying or using a gift
card:
Buy gift cards from
reputable sources. Avoid
buying gift cards from
online auction sites as
these cards may be stolen
or counterfeit or may
have been obtained
fraudulently.
Consider the financial
,condition of the company
and whether it has filed
for bankruptcy. If the
business closes stores, the
card recipient may not be
able to easily redeem the


card. A company that
files for bankruptcy may
still honor its gift cards,
and competitors may also
accept the cards. Call the
retailer or competitor to
find out.
Inspect'the card before
buying. Verify that none
of the protective stickers
have been removed. En-
, sure that the codes on the
back of the card have not
been scratched off to re-
veal a PIN number.
Give the recipient the
original receipt to verify
the card's purchase value
in case the card is lost or
stolen. Ask about pur-
chase exceptions, includ-
ing any terms of use that
may vary regarding a
store's Website versus the
physical store location.
Know your rights.
Florida law mandates
that gift cards issued in
Florida will not expire.
or have any fees that
would reduce the value
of the gift card.
Complaints about gift
cards should first be re-
ported to the retailer Br fi-
nancial institution that is-
shed the card. If the prob-

Adornment of the Body-

Jewelry I at LCCC


By Janis Brothers,
LCCC associate professor of art
Whether for ritual, cultural, or orna-
mental purposes, the human body has
served as a canvas for self-expression
since the beginning of human history.
Permanent alterations of the body are
found through tattooing, scaring;
piercing, and reshaping. Individuals
wishing for more temporary body
embellishments implement makeup,
clothing, hairstyles and jewelry. All of
these decorative applications serve to
establish identity of the wearer and
are reflective of the culture from
which they originate..
In he,spirit of body adornment, I
am excited about the addition of a
new course, ART 2150 Jewelry I at
Lake City Community College, of-
fered during the spring 2009 term.
The course is scheduled to meet Mon-
days and Wednesdays from 10 a.m.
until 11:15 a.m. at the College's Lake
City campus. Students enrolled in this
course will learn to-design and fabri-
cate metal into wearable art. Projects
will include the creation of bracelets,
earrings, rings and pendants. Skills
covered include cutting, forming, cold
connections, soldering, casting, pol-
ishing and stone setting. The course
will help students find design inspira-
tion, transform ideas into reality, un-
derstand the possibilities and limita-
tions of metal, and explore tools and
techniques fundamental to becoming
a jewelry craftsman.
Mass produced jewelry, while often
affordable and readily available, lacks
the individuality of a custom-de-
signed piece. Many artists exhibit and
sell uniquely designed jewelry in gal-
leries, retail establishments, and via
Web' pages.: One such artist is Sue
Amendolara, professor of jewelry and
metals at Edinboro University in Ed-
inboro, Pennsylvania. During the
summer 2008 term, I had the opportu-
nity to study under Amendolara at
the beautiful, historic Arrowmont
School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlin-
burg, Tennessee. Her work has been
widely published in numerous jewel-
ry and metals publications, including
The Art and Craft of Making Jewelry,


published by Lark Books. Being a
metalsmith has provided Amendolara
the opportunity to travel and exhibit
extensively on an international level.
She brought a world of knowledge
and experience to the metals work-
shop.
As an artist experienced in large-
scale.metal and ceramic sculpture, I
was challenged to scale-down my
work. After all, jewelry is small-scale
sculpture. My previous works tow-
ered as tall as eighteen feet. You cer-
tainly can't wear something that large!
Yet the principles of fabricating and
forming steel are quiet similar to cut-
ting, manipulating, and connecting
metals for jewelry. I just had to find
my reading glasses. The metal can be
colored with patinas, polished, but
most interestingly, worn for adorn-
ment.
Successful manipulation and con-
trol of the chemical and physical
properties of metal requires an exten-
sive knowledge of metallurgy. Sol-
dering, forging, and annealing are a
few of the methods that jewelers use
in fabrication. However, my personal
favorite process is metal casting in
which the artist creates a'mold, melts
'metal to temperatures as high as 2000
degrees Fahrenheit, and pours the
molten material into the hollow form
to harden. Once the metal cools, the
piece is cleaned and polished, produc-
ing an artistic component suitable for
jewelry. This experience is simply
magical.
If you are interested in taking part
in the excitement and satisfaction of
creating your own personal adorn-
ments, consider enrolling in ART 2150
Jewelry I for the spring 2009 semester.
Registration is now through Friday,
Dec. 12, 3 p.m. (all fees are due by 3
p.m. Dec. 12)..This course satisfies
elective credit for LCCC studio/fine
arts majors and others associate in
arts degree-seeking students. Please
feel free to contact me for advising in
the visual arts.
Brothers is an associate professor of
art at LCCC. She can be reached via

Poison proofing

your home for

the holidays

Don't let holiday hazards
ruin your celebration
Submitted
The holiday season is here and along with it
comes food, fun, festivities, and decorations. These
busy moments coupled with excited children,
rushed parents, a change in routine, and entertain-
ing holiday guests may set up potentially danger-
ous poisoning situations.
Since food is an important part of the holiday cel-
ebrations, the staff of the Florida/USVI Poison In-
formation Center Jacksonville wants you to be
very aware of the potential for bacterial food poi-
soning that may pose a threat during this time. Bac-
terial food poisoning is a mild illness that usually
develops within a few hours but may also be de-.
layed up to a few days after eating the contaminat-
ed food. Symptoms include fever, headache, diar-
rhea, stomach pain and vomiting, and usually do
not require any special treatment. These symptoms
generally will go away in 12 to 24 hours. The.bacte-
ria is normally associated with meat, fish, dr dairy
products that have been allowed to thaw improper-
ly, that have come in contact with dirty work uten-
sils or work areas, or with unwashed hands.
Turkey is a traditional favorite food during the
holiday season, but if not prepared properly, can be
a haven for bacteria: Simple precautions to take in-
clude:
Do not thaw turkey at room temperature; this al-
lows for bacterial growth. Thaw the frozen turkey
in the refrigerator unwrapped allowing one day of
thawing for every four to five pounds of turkey.
Do not partially cook turkey one day and contin-
ue roasting the next day.
.Refrigerate separately turkey, gravy, stuffing, and
other leftovers after the meal; room temperature is
not sufficient. Use leftover turkey, stuffing and
gravy within three days of cooking.
Also during this season, be mindful of common
holiday poisoning hazards that could be dangerous
to your children. Remind your holiday guests to
keep medications up and out of reach and sight of
young children.
As you trim the tree and host your party, remem-
ber the following:.
DECORATIONS
Family heirlooms, antique ornaments as well as
older, artificial Christmas trees may contain lead.
Bubble lights may contain methylene chloride
which could be toxic if swallowed.
The use of artificial snow can cause respiratory
problems if not used in a well-ventilated area.
Angel hair, made of spun glass, is irritating to the
eyes and skin.
Lamp oils can be toxic if contents enter the lungs.
Artificial tree scents and tree preservatives often
contain alcohol and other irritants, and can be.dan-
gerous if swallowed or sprayed into the eyes.
Gift-wrap, hobby glues, and batteries can block a
child's airway if swallowed. Button batteries are
particularly dangerous if swallowed and require
immediate medical attention.
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
Clean up immediately following all holiday par-
ties so that alcohol, cigarette butts, and other poten-
tially harmful items are not within reach of children
who may imitate adult behavior.
A small amount of alcohol can cause a child's
blood sugar to drop to a dangerously low level.
Sleepiness, seizures and breathing difficulties can
also occur.
Store all alcoholic beverages in a locked cabinet
or up and out of reach and sight of children.
Don't drink and drive.
If you suspect a poisoning has occurred, or if you
have questions concerning poisonings, immediately
call the Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222. When the
problem is poison, the answer is poison control.
Call for your free phone sticker or refrigerator mag-
net so that you may have the number readily acces-
sible.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Although Thanksgiv-
ing Day has come and
gone as such, we should
still able remembering
to be thankful for each
day, and for the upcom-
ing season, remember-
ing that "Jesus is the
Reason for the Season."
The Churches willbe
filled with Christmas
messages, music,
pageants, everything
pertaining to this Holy
Season, let.us keep that
foremost in our hearts
and minds.
I have an apology to
make, a correction from
an item in the Jasper
News a couple of weeks
ago. We still offer sin-
cere congratulations to
Mike DeVane on his
winning the election,
the apology is that we
mentioned that he was
a graduate of Jennings
High School (Mike we
do knbw you are not
that old). I may get rep-
rimanded for saying
that from those who
graduated earlier, but
that is all right, we do
know that you graduat-
ed from Hamilton
County High School.
We. are happy for you
and wish you great
future in this new area
of your profession.
More good news of a
Hamilton County High-
School graduate, Felicia
Jones Moss, Principal of
Metcalf Elem. School,
Gainesville, Alachua
County; has received a
grade of "A" for the
2007-2008 School Year.
Moss' school received
an "F" the precious
school year. Metcalf is a


neighborhood school.
Students are not bussed
from other areas, but
live within two miles of
the school. Moss' recipe
for success includes
looking at the whole
child to identify and ad-
dress needs, good teach-
ers who are well-
Strained, and support
from students' families,
Moss said the school
has a plan that includes
frequent monitoring of
students' progress, feed-
back-to parents and stu-
dents, and Saturday
school for those in need.
(appreciation to Mar-
garet Lewis for her
work on this report). Fe-
licia Faye Jones Moss is
a 1982 graduate of
Hamilton County High
School and the Univer-
sity of Florida. We are
proud of'her success.
She is the daughter of
Isabelle Jones Miller of
Jasper.
We had to say good-
bye to a lovely lady last
.week, one who brought
many smiles and much
joy to us after her return
to Jasper to make her
home. Sally Roberson
Dodge shed joy every-
where she went, with
her smile and always
her trademark hats, so
many different ones,
some were displayed at
the pews the day of her
-- funeral. When we
learned of her death the
evening before her fu-
neral, it seemed only a
few days before we had
seen her in a doctor's of-
fice with a smile on hr
face, stating that she
had driven herself to


.
the office, that is
the wav she would
want to be remem-
bered. Sympathy to
her and her family,
loved ones and
friends.
STITCHIN' SISTERS
(Cindy Goolsby and
Gretchen'Goolsby) will
be holding Christmas
Open House at 626 S.
Ohio Avenue, Live Oak,
on Saturday, Dec. 6. Re-
freshments will be
served throughout the
-day. You are invited to
come by for a visit with
them to see the variety
of Christmas gifts, can-
dies and gift baskets.'
Sounds good to me.
The Jasper Woman's
Clib is open for parties,
already decorated and
ready to party, get in
touch with Gloria
Wilkinson and make
your plans NOW. Call
792-1811 to make
arrangements. You can

it was when you went
in. What more can you
ask?
The Christmas Parade

lining up at the Arena
and going through town
to the Park, where you
will be met by Santa
Claus.

ning in Jasper and

the season, let us know
what is HAPPENING.

Step Back in Time with a Victorian

Christmas Concert Tonight


A Victorian Christmas Concert will
be presented Thursday, Dec. 4, at 7
p.m. by the Lake City Community
College Choir and the Chamber
Singers in the Levy Performing Arts
Center on campus. The singers will
be dressed in Victorian holiday cos-
tumes, performing historically ap-
propriate music from the 19th centu-
ry. The choral. director is Professor of
Music Owen Wingate and the col-
lege's choral accompanist is Tim
Redding.
The choral concert will include tra-
ditional carols, as well as contempo-
rary holiday music. Many of our hol-
iday traditions, decorations, cus-
toms, foods, as well as music have


evolved from the Victorian era.
Some'of these include the song
"Dashing through the Snow" or "Jin-
gle Bells" and the poem "'Twas the
Night before Christmas" From the
Victorian era we have, also inherited
the tradition of sending and receiv-
ing Christmas cards; placing gifts
under the Christmas tree;.Santa
Claus and a flying reindeer sleigh;
fruitcake; and stuffed, roasted
turkey.
Come see and hear the college
choir as they "deck the halls" and
bring in the holiday season. This
event is free, no tickets required.
Please call 386-754-4255 for more in-
formation, directions or assistance.


Tips for Holiday Travelers


For families across
the country, the holi-
days are synonymous
with travel. With fam-
ilies seemingly more
spread'.out geographi-
cally than ever before,
a holiday without at
least a little traveling
is extremely rare.
For those likely to
spend as much time
on the road or in the
airport as they do
around the tree this
holiday season, con-
sider the following
tips to lessen some of
your traveling load.
Check flight status
before leaving home:
While it's imperative
to arrive at the airport
early, particularly
during the busy holi-
day season, check
your flight status on-
line before leaving for
the airport. Often-
times, flights are de-
layed during the holi-
day season, sometimes
for several hours. If
you can avoid it, .
there's no reason to


Lillian Norris. idle the time away in
792-2151 an airport, especially
norrislw@alltel.net if you're traveling


with children;
Don't wrap gifts be-
fore getting on a
flight: With airport se-
curity tighter than .
ever, travelers can ex-
pect all baggage, be it
carry-on or checked,
to be searched. While
not every piece of lug-
gage is searched, that
discretion is left en-
tirely to airport secu-
rity personnel. That
said, there's no point
in wrapping gifts
ahead of time if trav-
eling by air. There's a
chance you might
have to re-wrap those
gifts when you reach
your final destination.
Use a shuttle service.
to the airport: Holiday
traveling is stressful
enough without
adding long-term air-
port parking fees and
highway traffic to the
mix. By using a shut-
tle service to get you
to and from the ai?-
port, you're leaving
the stress of traffic to
someone else, and
you're more likely to
get buttthe door on
time if someone is in


your driveway wait-
ing with the engine
running.
Pack some entertain-
ment for the kids:
Roadways are also full
of holiday travelers. If
the bulk of your trav-
eling will be done in
the car this holiday
season, be sure to
pack some entertain-
ment for the kids.
Consider renting a
minivan with a DVD
player if you don't al-
ready have one, and
bring along enough
movies to keep the
kids occupied for the
duration of the trip.
Use E-ZPass wher-
ever possible: Few
things can be as
nervewracking on the
road as waiting in
long lines to pay road
tolls. If E-ZPass is
available in your area
or anywhere along
your trip, sign up for
it. E-ZPass lanes help
reduce traffic jams
around tolls while al-
lowing travelers to
make better time dur-
ing the busy holiday
season.

The Lady Trojan soc-
cer team traveled to
Live Oak to play a heat-
ed rivalry match with
the Bulldogs. Hamilton
has never beaten their
neighboring county and
it usually is a lopsided
affair, but not this night.
The Lady.Trojans
S stepped on the field and
challenged the Suwan-
nee in every aspect of
the game. "We decided
to play a defensive
game and be very ag-
gressive attacking the
ball or player" said
Coach Chris Byrd. He
continued "We wanted
to counter attack using
our speed up front with
Megan Snipes and
Rekiesha Edwards but
we had to protect our
goal first."
The Bulldogs had a
total of 9 shots on goal
in the first half. Hamil-
ton goalie Blake Daniels
made 7 saves in the first
half and was in com-
plete control of the
goalie box. Hamilton
kept the game scoreless
until 6:33 left in the first
half. Suwannee took a
shot that deflected off of
a Hamilton defender re-
sulting in a corner kick.
Suwannee kicked the
ball into the goalie box
where Daniels jumped
to get the ball with a
Lady Bulldog on her
back.The ball hit ""
Daniels, hands and
bounced toward our
goal. Daniels, diving to
get the ball was pushed
into the side goalpost .
rocking the whole goal
as the ball hit the back
of the net. The referee
allowed the goal to
stand as Hamilton's
coaches and fans erupt-
ed with dismay. The
referee indicated the
ball crossed the goal
line before the Suwan-
Snee player got tangled
with Daniels. Daniels
injured her ribs on the
play but was able to
continue in goal. The
half ended with Suwan-
nee leading 1-0.
Hamilton received a


to Suwannee, 3-1


spirited halftime talk
from their coaches who
urged the.girls to play
tough. Volunteer Coach
Rueban Perez'stated
"Suwannee was playing
very physical and we
needed our girls to play
in the same fashion."
The Lady Trojans start-
ed the second half push-
ing'the ball forward.
Hamilton had a couple
of shots early by Snipes
but was wide of the
goal. Hamilton's half-
backs, Shana Campbell,
Ashley Crone and Jen-
nifer Portillo were do-
ing a better job control-
ling the ball. However,
an errand pass was in-
tercepted by a Suwan-
nee player who dribbled
the ball toward the goal
and shot. The ball
slipped by Daniels on
the right post. Suwan-
nee was up 2-0 with
34:17 left in the game.
Hamilton made some
offensive adjustments
with nothing to lose.
Angela Wilson was
moved to a left forward
position to help create
more opportunities.
"Our defense was pretty-
solid with Ali Kennedy
as sweeper, so we
thought we could get
back into the game"
stated Assistant Coach
Candido Perez.
The move paid off 8
minutes later when Wil-
-sornw'as on'the receiv- :
ing end of a corer kick
from Snipes. The ball
slipped past several de-
fenders and Wilson
hammered the ball past
Suwannee's goalie,
SKelsey Curls, from 12
yards out. Hamilton
was back in it. It was' a
see-saw battle for the
next 17 minutes with
both teams having scor-
ing opportunities.
Hamilton's best oppor-
tunity was the result of
a hard foul on Emily
Carter. Carter received a
pass from Brooke Ross
and made a nice move
to get past one of their
players. Carter then at-

Trojan Boys


Basketball


The Hamilton County
High School Trojan varsi-
ty boys basketball team
started their season off in
style winning each of
their first 3 games. They
won both games in the
HCHS Preseasorl Tip Off
Classic and then won
their first regular season
contest over Union Coun-
ty ligh.
. The first game of the
Preseason Classic was
played between Melody
Christian and Madison
County High. Melody
won the game 66-48 but it
was a well fought match.
Following that game, fhe
Trojans battled the Fort
White Indians. After
jumping out to an early
22-13 lead after the first
quarter, the Trojans con-
tinued to pour it on in the
second quarter, outscor-
ing the Indians 26-10 in
route to a 48-23 lead at
halftime. From there,
Hamilton cruised to an
81-52 victory.
HamiltoP was lead in
scoring by junior Vincent
Bailey's 20 points. Three
other Trojans scored in
double figures: senior
Jacaris Stubbs (14), junior
Wesley Oliver (10) and
sophomore Eric McClain
(10). Other scorers for
HCHS included: Antho-
ny Ingram (8); Ti'Wan
Cooks (6); Courtney Mc-
Cloud (5); KC. Coffee (4);
falen Strickland (2); O.J.
Newsome (1); and Robert
Davis (1)...- .
Hamiltorn really har-
dled the rebounding cate--
gory, having 17 more re-
bounds than the Indians.
Two Trojan players had
double figures in re-
bounding and they were,
Vincent Bailey and Eric
McClain who each had 13
boards on the nighf. Both
players ended up with
double doubles! The Tro-
jans also got 6 rebounds
from Stubbs,, 4 boards
each from Newsome, Mc-
Cloud, Oliver, and Davis,
3 rebounds from Ingram,
and Coffee; and 2 from
Walter Jones.
The Trojans had 23 as-
sists for the game and was
lead by sophomore guard
Anthony Ingram, who
had 7 assists for the game.


Bailey also had 4 dimes in
the game.
Hamilton ended the
night with a whopping 18
steals as they used pres-
sure defense and all-out
hustle to cause the' Indi-
ans to have 25 turnovers.
Eleven out of 12 players
got in on the act with at
least 1 steal. Team leaders
for the night in this cate-
gory was Stubbs and Mc-'
Clain, who each had 4
steals.
On Saturday night, the
consolation game fea-
tured Madison County
High playing against Fort
White High. Madison
prevailed, winning easily
by over 20 points. It was a
nice showing by the Cow-
boys. The championship:
game featured the visiting
Melody Wildcats and the
host team Hamilton Tro-
jans.
HCHS started off with
a bang, outscoring the
,Wildcats 11-2 in the first
few minutes with stifling
defense and fast tempo.
Unfortunately, the Tro-
jans were called for 10
fouls in the first 5 minutes
of the game, slowing the
pace of the game up and
allowing Melody Christ-
ian to shoot many free
throws. Hamilton led by 3
points at the end of the
first quarter but Melody
had all of the momentum.
Melody then proceeded
to outscore Hamilton 22-9
in the second quarter
thanks t.AAntonio Fields .
twov free point arnd
Lawrence Whitmore's
five free throws in the
quarter. This gave the
Wildcats a 36-26 lead at
halftime over the Trojans.
Things quickly
changed at the beginning
of the second half as
Hamilton went back to a
full court pressure de-
fense and picked the tem-
po up in the third quarter.
HCHS outscored Melody
21-11 in the third quarter
as they were led by Vin-
cent Bailey's 8 points and
Robert Davis' 5 points'in '
the quarter, tying 'the
game up at 47 entering
the 4th quarter.

tempted to pass the ball
forward when she was
hit from behind and
knocked to the ground.
Campbell took the free
kick 35 yards from
Suwannee's goal. The
ball cleared the defend-
ers as Edwards and
Snipes rushed to take
the pass. Suwannee's
goalie, Curls, came off
of her line and dove
forward to keep Hamil-
ton from the tying goal,
Suwannee secured
the victory when they


received a penalty kick
for a foul inside of
Hamilton's goalie box.
"We were trying to
clear the ball out of our
end and we knocked
down one of their play-
ers in the process" said
Coach Byrd. Suwannee
scored with 9:12 left in
the game. "We played
'very well tonight and I
am very proud of the
girls" stated Coach
Byrd. He continued "I
also want to thank our
parents, students and
fans for coming out to
support us." Hamilton


had twice as many fans
in the stands than
Suwannee did at their
field.
The Lady Trojans
record is 1-3. Hamil-
ton's game at Lake City
was canceled on 11/25.
At press time, it was
unknown if the Lake
City game will be for-
feited or re-scheduled
at a later date. The Lady
Trojans next game is at
Fort White on Friday,
Dec. 5. Please come out
to support your Lady
Trojans. (Photos by jay-

continued to fight and
scrap their way to their
first lead since early in the
second quarter. The lead
stretched to as many as 3
points but Hamilton
could not make their free
throws consistently
enough to widen their
lead. With 2:46 remaining
in the game, Melody's 6
foot 10 inch center Shawn
Jackson fouled out and
things looked good for
the Trojans. Melody
fought to keep it close,
however,' and tied the
game 'up at 67 with 13
seconds remaining. There
was a tense feeling in the
gymnasium as K.C. Cof-
fee inbounded the ball
under his own basket for
Hamilton.
Coffee made a nice
pass to Bailey on the left
block, who made a nice
drop-step move and
made the layup to give
Hamilton a 69-67 lead.
However, Melody in-
bounded the ball, raced
down the court and was
fouled by the Trojans.
Melody's Nick Carwise
made 1 of 2 free throws,
closing the HCHS lead to
1 point with 5 seconds re-
maining. After a Hamil-
ton turnover, the Wild-
cats got the ball with a
chance, to win. However,
Bailey blocked Whit-
more's three point at-
tempt and then Carwise's
desperation heave at the
buzzer fell short, giving
the Trojans a 69-68 victo-
ry.
S"It was a well-fought
game and I am proud of
the guys for not giving up
when, we were down by
10 in the third quarter. At
the same time, I give
credit to Melody for their
effort at the end of the
game. It was a good game
for both teams." said
Coach Patrick Murphy
after the game.
The Trojans had three
players scoring in double
figures led by Vincent
Bailey, who had 21 points
for the game. Senior
TI'Wan Cooks scored 10
points and Anthony In-
gram also had 10. Other
Trojan scorers included:
Robert Davis (7); Jacaris
Stubbs (7); Courtney Mc-
Cloud (5); Eric McClain
(4); Jalen Strickland (2);
Wesley Oliver (2); and
O.J. Newsome (1).
Vincent Bailey also led
the team in rebounds for
the game with an amaz-
ing 20 boards. Stubbs
chipped in 5 rebounds.
Oliver and McClain both
had 4 boards off the
bench. Three Trojans had
2 rebounds each: Cooks,
Ingram, and Davis. And
K.C. Coffee had 1 re-
bound in the game.
HCHS had 4 players
with 3 assists each to lead
the team. These players
were O.J. Newsome,
Ti'Wan Cooks, Vincent
Bailey, and Jacaris
Stubbs. The Trojans were
led in steals for the game
by Jacaris Stubbs, who
had 4 thefts on the night.
Hamilton received a
trophy for winning their
third consecutive presea-
son classic. Hamilton has
gone 7-1 in their last 8
preseason contests.' The
real season, however, be-
gan Monday night at
home against the Union
County High School


Tigers.
With the help of pres-
sure defense and good
hustle, HCHS led early
on 8-2, forcing Union
County to call a time out.
The Trojans kept up the
pressure, taking a 17-4
lead into the second quar-
ter. Led by Vincent Bai-
ley's 10 points in the sec-
ond quarter, Hamilton
took a 41-16 halftime
lead.


The third quarter was
evenly played with teams
exchanging baskets much
of the quarter. At the end
of the third period,
HCHS led 58-32. Hamil-
ton continued to attack
the Tigers in the 4th quar-
ter. Sparked by a thun-
derous Bailey dunk on a
nice pass from Anthony
Ingram, Hamilton
stretched the lead to 35
points, which meant a
running clock for the rest
of the game. Hamilton
cruised to an 80-45 win in
their first regular season
game, making their
record 1-0. The JV boys
basketball team also won
so their record also stands
at 1-0.
For the third game in a
row, the Trojans were led
in scoring by junior-for-
ward Vincent Bailey, who
had 27 points. The only
other scorer in double fig-
ures for the night was se-
nior guardTi'Wan Cooks,
who had 19. Both Court-
ney McCloud and K.C.
Coffee came off the bench
to score 6 points. Robert
Davis, Jacaris Stubbs, and
Eric McClain each had 5.
O.J. Newsome, Wesley
Oliver, Anthony Ingram
each scored 2 points
apiece. And Jalen Strick-
land scored 1 point.
Hamilton out-rebound-
ed Union 49-31 for the
game and was led for the
third game in a row by
Vincent Bailey, who
recorded his third consec-
utive double-double of
the season with 15 re-
bounds to go with his 27
points. Eric .McClain
chipped in 7 boards.
Jacaris Stubbs and
Ti'Wan Cooks each had 6
rebounds. Robert Davis
had 5 rebounds. Other
Trojans with rebounds in-
cluded: Newsome (4);
Coffee'(3); McCloud (2);
and Oliver (1).
The Trojans ended the
night with 22 total assists.
Sophomore guard An-
thony Ingram had 5 as-
sists to lead the team.
Cooks and Bailey each
had 4 dimes to help out in
this category.
In the steals depart-
ment, Hamilton' had 17
total for the game and
was led by junior guard
Courtney McCloud's 4
thefts. Ingram and Stubbs
each had 3 steals in the
game. Wesley Oliver led
the team in blocked shots
with 2.
Coach Murphy was
pleased with the defen-
sive effort as the Trojans
caused Union to turn the
ball over 26 times along
with holding the Tigers to
32% shooting for the
night. With this type of
defensive pressure,
Union just couldn't get
started on offense.
Although 9 of Hamil-
ton's 12 players had never
played an official varsity
game before this year, the
young Trojans have
made up for it with all
out hustle and a tremen-
dous attitude getting out
to a nice start of the sea-
son. The Trojans will
travel to Cross City Mon-
day, December 1st to take
on a tough Dixie County
team which routed Fort
White in their first regu-
lar season game. Both
teams like to run so it
should make for a fun
match up.
The Trojans will then
travel to Statenville,


Georgia to take on rival
Echols County High Fri-
day, December 5th and
then follow that up the
next day by playing host
to another rival, Suwan-
nee County High on Sat-
urday the 6th. Both days
feature all 4 high school
teams in action so come
out and support the bas-
ketball Trojans!

Motor Oil Facts, Not Friction


Many people don't know how to se-
lect motor oil that will help them get
optimum performance out of their
car. People often just select the oil
their father used, or they may take the
suggestion of a counter person at an
auto parts store who may not know
any more about cars than they do.
There are meaningful differences in
motor oils and choosing the right one
can have a major impact on how well
your car runs. Selecting the right oil is
the quickest and cheapest way to im-
prove your car's performance and re-
liability.
Two components determine how
well motor oil will perform in ypur
car. One factor is the base oil,.and the
other is the combination of chemicals
(additives) that are added to the base
oil.
Base oils
The two primary types of base oils
used are mineral and synthetic. Min-
eral oils are by-products of refined
crude oil. Refining helps reduces the
impurities but leaves molecules of all
shapes and sizes. Synthetic oils are
manmade compounds where mole-
cules are all the same size and shape;
consequently, synthetic oil has a less
friction and performs significantly
better than mineral oils.
There's been sizable growth in the
use of synthetic oils over the years. In
fact, synthetic oils are often the facto-
ry fill in many new performance and
luxury cars.
Additives
Regardless of the base oil used,
chemicals inust be added to give mo-
tor oil the characteristics needed to do
its job. Typical additives that may be
added to base oil include detergents
to reduce the formation of residue,
defoamants to deter absorption of air,
anti-wear agents, antioxidants and
others.'
Although additives are typically
only 15 to 25 percent of the make up
of motor oil, they can impact a lubri-
cant's performance much more than
the base oil. For instance, mineral
based motor oil with a very good ad-
ditive package can easily outperform
synthetic motor oil with a mediocre
additive package.
There is no easy way for a con-
sumer to determine the quality of mo-
tor oil's additive package. Price is of-
ten ai indicator of quality since the
more advanced additive technologies
cost more to produce. Performance is
the ultimate measure of additive
package quality.
Advances in lubrication
Some of the biggest technological


advances in lubrication are now com-
ing through advancements in chemi-
cal additives. These breakthroughs
have been developed by a handful of
companies that specialize in high-per-
formance lubricants, as opposed to
major oil companies whose primary
focus is refining and selling crude oil
by products like gasoline and other
fuels.
One high-performance lubricant
company, Royal Purple, has devel-
oped lubricants that outperform both
leading mineral oils and other syn-
thetics. Their oil has been proven in
numerous independent tests to dra-
matically reduce engine wear, in-
crease horsepower and torque, and
reduce fuel consumption and emis-
sions. Cars using their oils can also go
further between oil changes, saving
the owner time and money, and re-
ducing the impact on the environ-
ment. More information about their
products is available at their Web site
www.royalpurple.com
How to Choose
Mineral-based (conventional) motor
oils. These are the cheapest and most
widely available oils. They typically
use standard additive packages that
provide minimum levels of perfor-
mance and protection.
Synthetic nrotor oils. These man-
made oils are more expensive that
mineral-based oils but are still widely
available. Their performance advan-
tages come predominantly from the
synthetic base oil used. They have a
longer service life and offer some im-
provements in protection. They typi-
cally use the same additive packages
found in mineral-based oils.
High-performance 'speciality' syn-
thetic motor oils. These motor oils are
the most technologically advanced
oils. Although they significantly out-
perform mineral based or synthetic
motor oils, they are about the same
price as standard synthetic motor oil.
They are typically only available
through auto parts stores and select
oil change centers. Thesepoils primari-
ly differ in their use of more ad-
vanced, proprietary additive tech-
nologies.
*Still confused? For a used car with
little life left in it, stick with the cheap
mineral-based motor oil. For a car you
plan to keep for a few years and want
ie.'get a little better performance from,
you should at least upgrade to syn-
thetic motor oil. To get the most per-
formance out of your car, truck or RV,
or to protect a vehicle you really care
about and want to last, upgrade to a
high performance motor oil.

Roy and Shirley Guercio, owners of Live Oak's Dairy

Queen, are this year's Christmas on the Square

Parade Grand Marshals!


By Vivian Starling
After more than 28 years of living in the hustle and bustle of south Florida
Roy and Shirley Guercio decided to moved north. Roy, who had been a part
of the WTVJ Channel 4 team in'Miami for 22 years, and Shirley a stay-at
-home mom who managed rental property owned by the duercios, decided
Alachua County seemed the logical area. After all, they had a daughter attend-
ing the University of Florida and the move would be perfect. Roy obtained a
real estate license and Shirley who had her real estate license beganexploring
the surrounding area for business opportunities. It seemed Roy and Shirley
was still looking for that "small town" where they could be a part of the com-
munity and make a difference. Live Oak and Suwannee County caught their
interest and in 1993 when they purchased the franchise of the local Dairy
Queen in Live Oak Roy and Shirley knew they had come home. Roy and
Shirley knew immediately it was important to, "get involved in the county, not
just say we were committed to making a difference, but show that we were
physically and financially committed to making that difference where we live
and work", reflected Roy and Shirley.
And what a difference they have made since 1993! It has been that commit-
ment that has shined through in their involvement in the community. The
Guercios have sponsored every activity you could think of from area Little
League football, baseball, soccer teams to school benefits for area elementary
schools which could help raise as much as $1700 at each event, to the "Gold
Card" presented to youth who make the Honor Roll. "I can remember we
would start three days in advance lining things up for parents and teachers to
come into DQ and put on the three hour fund-raising event, it takes a lot of
prep and follow through. It was so worth the investment to see the smiles on
the parents, children and teachers faces when they reached a goal or were able
S to do a special school project or trip," reflects Shirley. "One of my most hap-
piest moments was when I presented a young lady a $500 scholarship from
DQ...to see the look on the faces of these young people, well it's just some-
thing you don't forget," Roy Guercio said. "It's important for a business to be
a part of the community and the community to be a part of the business, it all
comes back as the Bible says to you in the end."
That is what the Guercios have strived to be...good stewards of the commu-
nity. One of many examples is the Guercios and DQ supporting the area 269th
National Guard Unit When deployed in 2003.. Families received discounts
when they presented their military id cards. But it goes beyond Suwannee
County, "Mr. Roy" is a United States Army Veteran from the Vietnam war.
After enlisting in the Army and five months of infantry training "Mr. Roy" was
chosen for the Presidential Honor Guard 1st Bat. 3rdInfantry.. Roy and
Shirley's commitment to the men and women and families who serve in the
United States Military is there for everyone to witness as they enter DQ. As
this interview was taking place a neon sign caught the attention of one family
as they placed their order. It moved the mother to seek out Roy and Shirley to
personally thank them. "Thank you for remembering.my son ydu don't
know him, his name is Gary and he recently finished a tour in the Persian
Gulf," Gary's mother Susan Borchardt stated. The Borchardts, who are from
Columbia County, were in Live Oak for a sporting event and ABH Borchardt is
currently serving on the USS Ronald Regan. The sign simply asked folks to
remember our military men and women and God Bless American.
Roy and Shirley, who will celebrate their 42nd wedding anniversary in May
2009 live by the golden rule -according to "Mr. Roy" "you treat others the
way you want to be treated and it comes right back to you double fold, that's
why our business has been so successful. Another important factor is I've had
Shirley for my partner, I couldn't have done none of this without her," simply
stated Roy. Ms. Shirley has encouraged.Mr. Roy to serve their community
through various civic and service organizations while she takes care of the


business aspects over the years. "Mr. Roy "reflects joining the Live Oak Ro-
tary Club was one of the best things he ever did, "I have received more than I
ever gave.". Roy served seven years on the Rotary Board of Directors, eight
years with United Way, and two years on the Suwannee County Chamber of
Commerce Board of Directors. "Mr. Roy". has served on "Christmas on the
Square" Committee for the past five years as well. Currently, Roy gets the
most joy from serving as a counselor for SCORE which counsels with young
people who are interested in starting a business or who have just formed a new
business. Although SCORE was organized in. Columbia "Mr. Roy" serves in
the Suwannee County area. "We -'Shirley and I, have truly been blessed. DQ
has been a way of life for Shirley and myself and thanks to the community,
great employees and lots of work we are looking forward to semi-retirement (I
have a feeling spending more time doing what they love most spoiling their
four granddaughters is top on the list), and turning our business over to our
daughter Suzanne and her husband. "This will be a second generation busi-
ness and hopefully one day a third generation with our grandchildren," stated
Roy & Shirley. There is so much more we could share about "Mr. Roy" &
"Ms. Shirley" but nothing more important than their love for the community
