In wake of recent
salmonella outbreak


I Log on to the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration Web site, fda.gov,
-for a complete, searchable list
of all recalled items.
By Jo Rpss
Parents of Hamilton County School children
can breathe a sigh of relief regarding the recent
salmonella outbreak involving products made
from peanut butter. According to Ida Daniels,
Food & Nutrition Services coordinator for the,
Hamiltot County School District, local schools
"do not have any peanut butter or products
associated with this recall."
According to recent statistics released by the
Centers for Disease Control's Web site (CDC),
"The case.count is 491 in 43 states with latest
confirmed, reported illness beginning on
January 8, 2009."
TThe soluce of the tainted peanut butter
prod iucts"has been traced back to King Nut
Products, which are produced byPeanut
Corporation of America in Blakely, Ga. This
facility is now idle and most of its employees
hav.ebeen temporarily laid off pending the
outcome of the investigation. The Blakely plant
man ufactured a peanut paste which was not
sold direct tl to consumers, but rather to
institutions, tood service providers and food
marrufactuiers according to CDC reports ..

Sheriff's and police
officials met with local
community leaders Friday
to discuss the recent
increase in violence and to
look for ways to build trust
between those
investigating the crimes
and residents who may be
able to help solve them.
On hand for the meeting
were the Rev. Jeffery Dove,
the Rev. Billy Simon,
Sheriff J. Harrell Reid,
Police Chief Jeff McGuire,
Major John Davis,
Lieutenant Chip Belote and


Sergeant Anthony
Williams.
At the heart of the issue
was a Jan. 7 shooting in
Jasper that resulted in the
death of Dekovan "Nap"
Walls. Another man,
Jeffrey Walls, suffered non-
life threatening wounds in
the incident.
"We're confident that
there are witnesses out
there that need to come
forward with information
on this incident," Reid told
those assembled. "Our

Tension grows in wake of shooting


Continued From Page 1A

residents are truly
scared, they're just not
used to these kinds of
crimes. We have heard a
lot of rumors and
speculations regarding'
the motive, but no clear
evidence. Fear of
retribution for coming
forward may be an
issue, but I urge anyone
with information to find
someone they trust to go
to with what they saw
or know. We are
working with FDLE on
this particular case, and
if they are not
comfortable coming to
local Law Enforcement,
they can talk to another


agency. It doesn't matter
which agency brings the
perpetrators) to justice,
sb long as they are tried
and convicted. The
victim and his family
deserve that."
After requesting to
hear the 911 tapes of the
incident, Dove, of New
Bethel AME Church,
asked to meet with law
enforcement and church
and community leaders
to voice his desire for
the community to come:
together to work on a
forum which would
allow an appeal to go
out through the media
and from the pulpits for
anyone with
information to come


forward.
"I think a town
meeting would be in
order, to invite residents
to share their fears and
information to voice
their concerns and be
heard," said Dove.
"From what I'm hearing
in the community,
people are seared. They
are rinot happy with the
Sheriff's Department for
whatever, reason. I don't
think that's fair. Our
residents don't feel,
comfortable and I had
hoped that the ministers
of the community could
be a buffer and speak to
their churches and their
members to help rebuild
that trust."


"We need to do
something about this
issue," said Simon, of
The Greater Poplar'
Springs Baptist Church,
in Jasper. "Trust me,
from what I'm hearing,
it's not over. I can talk to
people on the street and
you can feel the
animosity between
groups. I believe Sheriff
Reid is doing a
magnificent job under
the circumstances and
the community wants to
work with him, but
they're afraid. We have
got to find some way to
get the people in the
community to work*
with the law
enforcement


community. These
criminals must be
caught and prosecuted
to the fullest extent of
the law. I see what's
happening in my
community: dope
pushers are on the
streets, the sheriff's
department locks them
up and within the week,
they are right back on
the streets doing it
again. Our court system
needs to start making an
example of these types.
of charges and '
criminals."
"Let's face it," said
Major John Davis, "This
has been happening in
communities all over
the place, but is new to'


us, here. We understand
our residents a;e scared.
That's why we heed
someone to be brave
and come forward
where we can-put an
end to this." ,
Dove, with *tie
assistance of Suion, is
planning to coordinate a
town meeting open
the floor for citizens to
voice their coni erns in
the near future,,
Crime Stoplprs and
the Hamilton Qounty
Sheriff's Office is
offering a reward for
any information which
leads to the arrest and
conviction of ,
individuals involved in
the death and shooting.

....R...A. JANUARY..2.. 209HEJAPE.NW. Jair FLPGE3


. -T hose of us that
live in White
T Springs know
that our town has a lot
of history. With a
higher percentage of
mu It i-generatiorial
f families than almost all
Other cities or towns in
1 e state, many of our
Folks ha, e very close
-dsonal ties to the past hundred and fifty years of
't Rftowns occffpancy. But if you really want to have
tingible connection to the truly ancient history of
:~iiarea, youecan hold in the palm of your hands
and' old pottery shard, a fossilized bone, an ancient
sharks tooth oi, my personal favorite, an arrowhead.
When I hold one of these objects my mind takes me
b a time in the past that I yearn to know more about,
Time that Mr. Theron Gaulding a past resident of
VMhite Spring4 described as follows when he wrote
f his reflections by the Suwannee River.
"Lost in reverie, my mind is not of these times, but
d times long past, for I w6uld know' of the past
vhich shapes the present, and the river knows all. A
jponze-skin'd ghost glides by in crude dugout ca-
ep,! a white feather dangling casually from straight
Rack hair, and I would know him. Would call to
him in brotherly glee, for a great part of my own na-
tire yearns for such primeval simplicity. But he
rd not hear'me, for he is of a previous dimension
n'Time. He passed, and I am sad at his passing. Sad
tipt he left so faint a mark on Time. But even he left
hi all ages the name of a river, Suwannee --- long
pd ,crooked stream."
Mr. Gaulding was one of White Springs' treasures,
Eccentric ,and sometimes difficult man who was
vell' loved by the few who got to know him well. He
Tas a poet.and an artist, who made his living doing
lddiobs and painting houses, and when he died his


lifeinwhitesprings@gmail.coi


ashes were d upon the Suwannee River in
White Springs, per request.
I think that Mr. G would have liked what is
happening in the Stephen oster Park this weekend
and if you want to learn more about the history that
took place before your own history, you will too. The
second annual Gator-Knap '09 Prehistoric Technolo-
gy Show will be held Jan. 30 to Feb. 1. Admission is
$4 per vehicle. The event will be an educational ex-
perience geared at bringing together professional
and avocational archaeologists, and all those inter-
ested in prehistoric technologies. Demonstrations
.and classes in technologies such as flint knapping,
ceramics, cordage, and carving of stone, shell, bone,
and Wood will be held at the scenic Stephen Foster
State Folk Culture Center along, the banks of the
Suwannee River. Come and teach, learn, or just crack'
some pock!
Featured Speakers are Bob Berg on "The Resur-
gence of Atlatl Hunting and Fishing" and James
Dunbar, Senior Archaeologist, Division of Historical
Resources, on "The Wakulla Springs Lodge Site: a
Pre-Clovis Paleoindian Habitation or Temporal Tem-
pest?"
Have you ever noticed the nice couple who walk
along Springs Street each week, picking up litter?
Tom and Maddie Moore do so much for our com-
munity, donating freely their time and talent on a va-'
riety of projects including picking up litter when tak-
ing their walks. This is one chore I would like to see
go away. Help Tom and Maddie out by not littering
and if you don't .mind, next time you see that empty
bottle or plastic bag next to the sidewalk, pick it up.
This is one time you 'can feel good about taking
somebody's job away from them!
Suwannee Bicycle Association will be hosting the
"IDIDARIDE" off road challenge ride this weekend.
Cyclist will be riding through town on their way to


and from the off road trails. They will be patronizing
our local campgrounds, B&Bs and restaurants so
give them some room and a friendly wave, it's good
karma!
Mr. Richard Fouraker will celebrate his 80th birth-
day at the Suwannee River Church of the Nazarene
on CR137 on Sunday Feb. 1, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
If you know Mr. Richard and his wife Mattie, come
and help them celebrate this fine occasion. Happy
Birthday Mr. Fouraker and may you enjoy this birth-
day and marxy more to come!
Birthday wishes are also extended to Mrs. Clyde
"Gloria" Hunter, who will celebrate her birthday on
Jan. 31. Mrs. Hunter will celebrate the 36th anniver-
safy of her 39th birthday. For many years, she drove
a bus for Hamilton County Schools. She is a good
seamstress and is very talented at crochet work. She
is a great cook, and nobody can beat her on home-
made fudge. She is an also an expert shot with a pis-
tol or a rifle, and she can hold her own in this area
with anyone of any gender. We wish Gloria many,
many more Happy Birthdays. She resides on the
Hunter farm on the Woodpecker Route twelve miles
north of White Springs on the Woodpecker Route
near Belmont.
Friends of Mrs. Verna Mae Johnson, well known
south county citizen and political activist, wish her
well during this recuperative period following a re-
cent health setback. She has, for many years, resided
at her home "The Huckabuck." We are praying for
"Miss" Verna Mae and her family.
Once again it's time for me to hush, and for you to
speak up, so let me know what you know about life
in White Springs. If I don't hear from you about what
is going on, I just might make something up!

that the City of Jasper has accept-
ed and therefore removed from
the tax rolls another parcel of
Island, the Lee-Shepherd home.
While I applaud,Ms. Shepherd for
her generous gift to the city, I can
not condone having it removed
from the tax rolls. The loss of the
tax revenue must be made up
someplace. The remaining citi-
zens can not afford to keep paying
higher taxes and water fees while
more and more property is taken
off the tax rolls. The property at
MLK and 4th Ave, now used as a
maintenance building resulted in
over $4,000 in lost taxes a year.
This is money that the city sorely
needs. As anyone who has city

utilities knows, the water and
sewer facilities are in poor repair.
The trash service was so in need
of new equipment that it was sold
off to a private company because
the city couldn't afford to do it.
Our police force has to beg for
equipment from the sheriffs of-
fice just to keep going and pro-
tecting the, people of Jasper.,
I would strongly encourage the
city, if it keeps all the properties
that it receives, to find ways to
make them pay at least what they
would pay in taxes each year and
hopefully more. Using the Lee-
Shepard home as private profes-
sional offices, paying rent, or as-a
museum or even selling it come to
mind. The city council needs- to
adopt a policy that no property

from the tax rolls without a specify

tion of land in the city limits is ki
taxed. This is not fair or equitable

Why Would You Want To Pay For It? :i


By Linmaa Williams, LaKe
City Community College
Dual Enrollment coordina-
tor
The state of Florida
wants to pay for your
college classes if you are
an eligible high school
student. There is no
charge to our students or
their families! In addi-
tion, you can use those
same college courses to
help you graduate from
high school. We call this
our Dual
Enrollment/Early Col-
lege Program!
Lake City Community
College offers the Dual
Enrollment program to
public, private, and
home-educated high
school students. To enter
the academic program, a
student must reside in
the five-county area
served by LCCC (Baker,
Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, or Union coun-
ties); be enrolled in
grades 10-12; be at least
15 years old but stu-
dents cannot participate
beyond their 19th birth-
day; have a 3.0 GPA; and
test into college-level
coursework by taking the
CPT, ACT, or SAT.
There are several ad-
vantages to participating
in the Dual Enrollment
program: qualified high
school students.are al- !
lowed the opportunity to
fulfill high school gradu-
ation requirements while
gaining credit toward a
certificate, diploma, or
'college degree program.
This special program'
provides a.cost-free
means for high achieving


students to have access
to expanded course op-
tions beyond high school.
The time is shortened to
earn a college degree,
diploma, or certificate.
Over the last three
years, 2,623 students
have qualified and par-
ticipated'in the Dual En-
rollment program. Of
that number, 47 students
actually graduated with
a college degree, diplo-
ma, or certificate at the
same time they graduat-
ed from high school! Tu-
ition and fees for the
dual enrollment courses
are waived for high
school students. In addi-
tion, the textbooks and
instructional materials
are made available and
are free of charge to stu-
dents enrolled in Flori-
da's public high schools.
What a cost savings to
parents! Dual enrollment
classes taken at LCCC
will transfer to any Flori-
da public college or uni-
versity, as is true for all
regular classes offered by
LCCC.
Any college-level acad--
emic or technical/ career
courses may be taken,
with the exception of
preparatory courses and
physical education skills
classes. A passing grade
of "C" or better is re- .
quired, with all college
grades remaining a part
of the permanent college
transcript. Before a stu-
dent enrolls into the pro-
gram, it is necessary that
both parents and guid-
ance counselors evaluate
the readiness of each stu-
dent. This will include:
academic preparation,
emotional and social ma-
turity levels, and the stu-
dent's ability to study
and learn independently.
We want our students to
be successful, so dual en-
rollment will ot fbe the
best option for any high
school student who is not
ready in all of the above


areas.
Courses are taught on
our college campus, our
campus centers, and at
district high schools dur-
ing school hours, after
school hours, and during
summer terms. Dual en-
rollment courses and tra-
ditional college courses
use identical course con-
tent, and may be taught '
in traditional classrooms,
delivered via distance
learning, or taught via
the Internet. High school,
students and college stu-,
dents are enrolled in the
courses together, where,,
they receive college cred'-
it immediately upon
passing the college course
es with a "C" or better.
All instructors teaching >
dual enrollment courses
have college level teach- -
ing credentials fi holding.
at least a master's degree:
with at least 18 graduate-
hours in a subject field. ,
Dual Enrollment dif- , "
fers from other accelerat--
ed mechanisms in that,
students are enrolled in':;
actual postsecondary
courses And they receive.
college credit for the sueZ-
cessful completion of
those courses. In contrast
college credit is only
awarded for Advanced
Placement (AP) courses'.if
students meet a designat-
ed score on a standard-.
ized state examination.
Why should you con- c
sider dual enrollment?
Our program gives stu-':
dents first-hand exposure
to the requirements of -
college-level work. Along
with assisting students i'..
with the academic transi-,
tion to college, LCCC's
Dual Enrollment pro- .
gram can help students
in making the psycholog-
ical transition. The pro-
gram begins a focused
educational plan for each
student. These young
LCCC students gain an

Attorney General encourages consumers to be

conscious of scams as tax season approaches


; -McCollum: Beware fraudulent
'tax preparation "experts," offers~
Submitted
Attorney General Bill McCollum to-
day issued a consumer advisory
warning Floridians to be on the look-
out for tax-related scams.
Complaints about fraudulent tax
preparers are reported to the Attor-
ney General's Office each year, as are
issues with identity theft and fraudu-
lent charities. The Attorney General
also advised consumers to ask about
service fees up front and avoid tax
preparers who daim they can obtain
larger refunds than anyone else.
"As tax season approaches and
Floridians get ready to file for tax re-
turns, scams begin to develop and con
artists begin looking for ways to take
advantage of people," said Attorney
.General McCollum. "Floridians can
protect themselves by being educated
about common schemes and report-
ing fraud to the Attorney General's
Office."
To avoid being.scammed by a non-
legitimate tax preparer, consumers
should get the credentials of the tax
'preparer and ask if he or she belongs
fo a state board or bar association
which requires continuing education.
The Attorney General'PsOffice also'
recommends that consumers shop
around for quotes and ask tax prepar-
1ers if thev will represent consumers'
who are audited or pay any aud.it-re-
lated fees. Only attorneys, certified
public accountants and enrolled
agents can represent taxpayers before
the IRS in any matter including au-
dits, collections and appeals.
One of the more common scams as-
sociated with tax season is "phishing,"
which, occurs when individuals pose
as Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or
'other government or banking repre-
sentatives and send consumers e-
mails seeking personal information al-
legedly for the purpose of processing,
refunds. The emails are usually creat-
ed to look official.and may include
subject lines that read "Refund No-
tice" or similarly misleading phrases.
, However, the IRS does not send e-


mails asking for personal information
to process refunds. Consumers can
visit the agency's website at
http://www.IRS.gov and click on
"Where's My Refund" to check on the
status of their refunds.
Another scheme which often sur-
faces during tax season is the creation
of fraudulent charities wlhich email
consumers seeking contributions they
claim can be written off as tax-de-
ductible. Florida law requires chari-
ties to register with the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services
and provide financial information
about income and expenditures. Con-
sumers have the right to ask for an or-
ganization's financial report and its.
federal tax identification number
which is necessary to claim contribu-
tions as tax deductions.
Attorney General McCollum of-
fered the following recommendations
to consumers to avoid tax-related
scams:
' Never give out personal identifica-
tion information to anyone who is so-
liciting money.
Do not respond to e-mails asking
for information relating to refunds.
The IRS's website is the legitimate
source for checking on refund status.
Research charities before sending'
them money and do not respond to e-
mail solicitations for money. The Bet-
ter Business Bureau has a charity re-
search page at http://www.bbb.org
which helps identify legitimate chari-
ties.
Do not give money to third parties
for income taxes on prizes. A legiti-
mate prize distributor must send
prize recipients the IRS form 1099
which states the value of the prize
won and must be filed with a con-
sumer's tax return.
Do not let anyone purporting to be
an agent for the IRS into your home
unless he or she has proper'identifica-
tion.
Consumers may file complaints
about tax-related scams and any other
types of fraud by calling the Attorney
General's fraud hotline, 1-866-966-
7226, or by filing a complaint online
at: www.myfforidalegal.com.

Spring cleaning


It's the season for sorting and re--
ducing items in your home or office
that have turned into clutter. Some
people hold on to items that they
no longer need or use because they
canit bear to throw them in the
trash. Instead of making a bee line
for the garbage pail, sort items that
are still useful and in good condi-
tion into piles that you will sell.
Take advantage of the first warm


weekend to hold a yard sale and
make some money on your seldom-
used stuff. People who donit want
to spend a day manning the yard
sale tables can place advertisements
for their belongings in a newspa-
perfs classified section. Onlin. auc-
tion .sites are another option for
parting with items that may be
your trash but another persons
treasure.

Wednesday, Jan-. 14,
marked the end of a nine
day Special Session held
,to balance the Stateis
budget after news of: a
$2.3 billion shortfall in
revenues for the fiscal
year 2008,2009.
..Freshman- Democrat
State Representative
Leonard Bembry (D-
Greenville) was active in
negotiations to deal with
cuts in agriculture, aqua-
culture, and education:
As a member of the Nat-
ural Resources Appro-
priations Committee, he
listened as heads of
agencies and staff of the
Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Ser-
vices, the Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion, Water Management
Districts, and the Fish
and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission made
recommendations they
feel had the least impact
on the citizens "of the
State, of Florida.
* Rep. Bembry was also
named as a conferee on
the Natural Resources
Appropriations Confer-
ence Committee where
he had the opportunity
to deal with the differ-
ences between the
House and Senate bud-
gets.
"We had the opportu-
nity to protect Florida
Agriculture and Aqua-
culture from the thrust
of many cuts that would
have been very damag-
ing to our future in Dis-
trict 10. I am relatively
pleased with the resolu-
tions we were able to ne-
gotiate in the. Natural
Resources Appropria-
tions Conference Com-
mittee and could sup-


port that part of the bud-'
get," said Bembry.
During debate on the
House floor, Rep. Bem-
bry also had the oppor-
tunity to address the
Members on issues that
affect District 10 con-
stituents. He defended
.cuts to education, med-
ical' care for the elderly
and the developmentally
disabled, tourism, and
the environment.
Bembry said, "I was
unable to vote for the
budget as I feel the solu-
tions that we considered
were narrowed too
much by the House
Leadership and did not
reasonably address our
budget situation. Educa-
tion and healthcare were
cut to a point that it
could damage our ability
going forward to proper-
ly educate our children
and protect our older
generation. Our children
are our hope for tomor-
row and older genera-
tions brought us to
where we are. We have


to protect both areas."
"By law, we had to bal-
ance the budget but we
need to protect the con-
stituents in District 10
and that must always be
our priority," continued
Bembry..
Rep. Bembry has
opened a district office
in Madison located at
North Florida Commu-
