just won't



go away

200 gather in Branford
to address dwindling aquifer,
threat from South Florida
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com
Suwannee River Water Management
officials and other area experts gathered at
a forum Monday night in Branford to
express concern over North Florida's
dwindling water supply and to outline a
plan to save the Floridian Aquifer, the
area's main source of water.
High on the list was the need to protect
local sources first, as per current state law,
said SRWMD Deputy Executive Director
Kirk Webster.
"They (South Florida interests) are
looking for water, they need water,"
Webster told a crowd of about 200 at
Branford Elementary School. However,
Webster noted, "we do not have endless
supplies" of the resource.
Lauren Davis, a Future Farmers of
America member and student at Cedar Key
Middle School, compared North Florida to
the ant in Aesop's fable, working hard to
protect its resources, while a wasteful South
Florida the grasshopper foolishly refuses
to conserve, then turns to us for help.
In some versions of the story the ant takes
pity on the grasshopper and shares his food
him. In real life we may not have a choice.
"We do not have the political clout to
stop it if someone wants to take our water,"
said Webster. Still, North Florida citizens
are going to try. Before the forum was over
a group action meeting had already been
set up for Tuesday morning at the Ft. White
community center.
"The era of cheap water is gone," said
Webster. "The state is going to have to pay
more. You cannot take water without
harming resources."
Webster sited desalination and better
conservation practices as alternative
solutions to Tampa's water shortage.
As for our own dwindling aquifer, the
Suwannee River Water Management
District along with the St. Johns River
Water Management District are working
towards a plan that will eventually put
Florida's aquifers "back on track." Already,
SRWMD has been in the process of a

This is the twelfth year the Daniels and Hawkins families
have decorated their yards for the pleasure of the whole
community. New displays this year include an airplane
releasing a skiing snowman and an
improved musical light show.
The display is located at 4110
SW 100th Avenue, north of
Jasper.

A good-sized crowd was present
for the inaugural Fall Festival. A
good time was had by all who
attended and participated in the
various events held in downtown
Jasper on October 30-31.
Festivities included a classic car
show, which was a big hit with
festival-goers. There were vendors
of foods, drinks, crafts and more.
Events also included a visit to the
haunted Old Jail Museum, Trunk or
Treat on Central Avenue and the
telling of ghost stories.
Plans to make next year's
celebration bigger and better are
already under way.


"Cool" classics were "hot" at the Classic Car Show. See more photos, Page 6A.


Veterans Day

in Hamilton


By Louise Sheddan
Many Jasper
residents turned out on
Veterans Day to honor
veterans of the past,
present and future.
Many members of the
American Legion and
VFW were present,
proudly representing
their posts by wearing
their decorative caps.
The ceremony took
place on the front lawn
of the Hamilton
County Courthouse.
With all the pomp
and circumstance
required for such an
occasion, our own

store.
"We try to see that
each child gets five to six
gifts," says Anne Hall,
who heads up the effort
each year.
Hall is committed to
the effort.
"This is something that
is very dear to my heart,"
she says. "Christmas is
for children and they do
not understand economic
situations. Regardless of
their economic situation,
they want what other
children want."
Hall asks companies,
organizations and
individuals to help all
local kids have a happy
Christmas. A donation of
$100 will sponsor a child.
Participating
businesses to date are
Stormant's Grocery in
White Springs, Foodway,
and SunSations in Jasper.
Churches in Jennings are
taking care of that area,
Hall said.
The trees will be set up
by Thanksgiving
weekend, she said.
Organizers collect the


gifts from the stores by
Dec. 18, shop for any
remaining gifts, and
contacts the parents so
they can pick up the
presents "for the man in
the red suit," said Hall.
For more information
contact Hall (386-638-
1617) or committee
members Beth Burnam,
Lori Stormant, Geri
Huddleson or Earlene
Hayes. You may also

business.

Water woes



won't go away

district wide water
supply assessment. "We
have determined there
will not be sufficient
water to meet future
needs in the Upper
Santa Fe Basin," said
Webster. "This is the
red flag, this is the
warning."
The new plan will
mean a new permitting
strategy for
municipalities, as well
as stricter conservation
measures for
homeowners and
business. The increasing
population in
northeastern Florida
and advancing industry
and other economic
development has led to
a rapid increase in
water demand.
In a previously
published article,
SRWMD Executive
Director David Still


stated that North
Florida must improve
the design and
management of water
resource technologies,
find alternative water
supplies, and adopt
stricter water
conservation
technologies.
"Hopefully once
implemented things will
get back on track," he
said.
However, with
Tampa's eye on the
Floridian aquifer, the
future of the Suwannee
River Basin's water
supply remains hazy,
expressed water
management officials.
Part 2, which will
appear in next week's
Jasper News, concerns the
other topic addressed at
Monday night's forum:
new EPA guidelines
governing nutrient levels
in runofffrom lawns,
ranches and farms.

Norris Note



By Lillian Norris

So determined am I to get a column in this
week, be patient with me, as this will more or
less be to get you to wait for later news. There
are several items I want to bring to your atten-
tion. This week I will just put a note about activi-
ties to make you wait for next week, as soon as I
get this off (on deadline) will be getting more de-
tails. If this doesn't make sense I will let you
know why later! I have just received an email
from a friend who has had days like I seem to
have been having: starting in the morning, end-
ing at bedtime, after a very busy day going back
to the list made early in the day and realizing it
will be to start all over tomorrow morning! There
is a name for this and if you call me, I will try to
tell you the symptoms, because I will have to
print it out to follow the pattern. Maybe you do
not have it, hopefully, but if we live long enough
I think most of us will "catch it".
This will give some abbreviated notes on what
I had planned to write this week:
In the past weeks we have been paying tribute
to our VETERANS, which has been a very re-
warding undertaking, how much they have giv-
en for us and the honor they deserve for their
contributions to our being able to live in Ameri-
ca, with much more freedom than other areas of
the world, if you are a Veteran, thank you from
the very bottom of our hearts.
It was a privilege for me to be asked by Leigh
Ann to ride on the float for her class in the Vet-
erans Day parade in White Springs last week,
each homeroom, had worked hard and had a


Submitted

(Gainesville, Fla.) The leader of Florida's
largest general agricultural organization remind-
ed his audience that agriculture has remained a
"pillar" of economic activity, despite the deep re-
cession of the past year. While speaking at Flori-
da Farm Bureau's 2009 Annual Meeting Oct. 28-
30 in Daytona Beach, President John Hoblick ac-
knowledged that many citizens have faced the
"toughest times since the Great Depression." But
farm operations have helped to sustain this
state's people and their standard of living in the
midst of record declines in tourism and construc-
tion.
Hoblick noted that Florida Farm Bureau has in-

beautiful meaningful
float, paying tribute to
~~ ur Veterans. It was a
great feeling to see what
the students, teachers,
faculty and staff at South
had done and the spirit
they showed as they rode
through White Springs in
honor of our Veterans.
We attended the program at the Court House on
Veterans Day, sponsored by the VFW, and heard
words from the Veterans Service Officer and oth-
ers, with music and tributes to who do and have
done so much for us. They enable us to do gath-
erings and parades and other public occasions in
freedom. This is something we should do all
year, say thank you to a Veteran and to those
who are now serving.
Judy Moore did articles on Veterans of WWII,
one from each branch of the service who had
served. We are trying to relocate these articles.
The articles done in 1999, sponsored by the hos-
pital, were hanging in the hallway; we are trying
to locate them.
The Womans' Club has been busy, we are
working on getting information out to you of
their activities.
Again, as I often comment, there is much going
on in Jasper and Hamilton County, and THE
JASPER NEWS is working hard to keep you up
to date. A local paper is important to our com-
munity, support the paper. Some smaller papers
have had to close or be absorbed into others, al-
though the JASPER NEWS serves from a parent
company, we are fortunate to have local people
involved and ask for your support
If you have some good news, let us hear from
you! Thank you for your help and cooperation.

tensively focused on supporting family agricul-
tural operations. Such a focus has included the
message of "Strong Family Farms, Strong Flori-
da." He promised that in 2010 the organization
will follow the same strategy. In addition, Farm
Bureau will aggressively pursue rural develop-
ment. "Our members are a powerful force for
economic stability and recovery," he said. The
challenge lies in repeatedly "convincing the peo-
ple who make public policy how important
(farmers and ranchers) are to the Sunshine State.
I think we can do that."
The farm leader also praised members for their
efforts at grassroots lobbying during the past

James Paul Forman, 41, of Margate, Florida went to be with our
Lord on October 19, 2009. He served his country as a U.S. Marine.
Jim was a graduate of WBMC School of Radiologic Technology and
through hard work and perseverance he earned the title of Senior
Manager, Clinical Sales Support Product Manager, Workplaces CT
Division of Siemens Healthcare Corporation. His position allowed
him to travel the world extensively.
Beryl and Jim Forman and Mary Barrus known as Mom, Dad, and
Mama:
I have a feeling that there is one more star up in the sky these
nights. And even though it is far away, its brightness and warmth
still reaches us here to make the nights a little less dark. Life has a
way of accelerating as we get older. The days get shorter, and the list
of promises to ourselves and others gets longer. One morning we
awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany of "I'm
going to", "I plan on", and "someday, when things settle down a
bit". We live on a sparse diet of promises we make to ourselves
when all the conditions are perfect!
This tragedy has changed our lives forever. It taught us that life
may not be the party we hoped for...but while we are here we might
as well sing, dance and play in the rain! What we can do today we
will not put off until tomorrow and we will keep our promises. You
will always live in our hearts and prayers. We love you and we will
miss you until we meet again.....
Judy Forman, called "wifey" by "husband" Jim:
The Lord blessed me with the best husband I could ever hope to
have. I hope I make you proud!! My love and my soul mate, I will
miss you.
Twin brother, Robert Forman:
Please join me in remembering Jim Forman for the man he was;
passionate, loving, full of surprise, inspirational and of course
stubborn. As his twin brother, I felt like I always had someone that
I could count on. As his friend, I welcomed his advice and support.
As a participant in sports I expected a fierce and competitive partner.
The footprint he left in this world is one that we can celebrate with.
We love and miss you Jim.
Older brother, Brian Forman:
Jim was a wonderful person to each of us in many different ways.
His thirst for knowledge, competitiveness, love of nature, loving

34th Annual "Great American Smokeout" is today


Hamilton County Residents and all
other Floridians are challenged to "Be
Free" of all tobacco use for 24 hours or
commit to a plan of becoming smoke-free
and beating their addiction for good.
Submitted
Jasper, Fla. The 34th Annual "Great American
Smokeout" will be celebrated by the American
Cancer Society, Florida Department of Health,
Tobacco Free Florida, Suwannee River Area
Health Education Center (AHEC), and the Hamil-
ton County Tobacco-Free Partnership on Novem-
ber 19, 2009. The American Cancer Society creat-
ed the concept in 1976 as a way to help smokers
quit for a day and still sponsors the annual event.
Those trying to quit using tobacco are still en-


courage to use the date to learn about the dan-
gers of smoking and tobacco use, stop the habit
altogether, or create a strategy to eventually put
out that last cigarette.
The Great American Smokeout web site
(www.cancer.org/GreatAmericans) offers more
event details along with an array of tips and tools
to help quit-including desktop helpers, a Quit
Clock, claculator, etc.
Locally, many cessation options and services
are available. The Florida Quitline offers tobacco
specialists, cessation methods, counseling, etc., 24
hours a day by calling 1-877-U-CAN-NOW or

spirit for family and church are just a few of the qualities that
each of us will carry on in Jim's absence. In his passing, we ask
that each of you remember our beloved son, husband, brother,
brother-in-law, handsome and cool uncle, nephew, cousin and
friend. Hold onto these thoughts, never let them die. Keep them
near and dear to your heart. When each of us comes to meet the
Lord, Jim will be standing there waiting for you, with open arms
and an open heart.
Brian and Lala Barrus, also known as AL and UB:
A tribute to beloved nephew Jim.....
So soon on earth your light of life did dim.
Those left behind do miss you, and we'll search
For ways to fill the void left in your church.
At work, at home, and places in between
You gave your all.....so "semper fi", marine.
Those close to you do understand your love
For family and for the Lord above.
Without you in our lives, we'll look for ways
To comfort one another through the days,
And all the while we'll carry on your dream
Of making life on earth much less extreme.
Our love for you will never, ever cease..
Our wish for you is that you'll rest in peace.
Aunt Lala and Uncle Brian
Aunt Lois Roberts and Uncle David Forman:
We'll see you on the other side when we too pass over.
Nephew, Corey Hodge:
Rest in peace, Uncle Jim.
From your loving nephew, Nicholas Forman:
I will miss my "handsome and cool" Uncle very much.
Niece, Nicole Emma Forman:
I will miss my Uncle Jim.
Several cousins scattered throughout the U.S. along with many

Good things to eat offered by one of the vendors at the
inaugural Fall Festival in downtown Jasper. Photos: RobWolfe


Folks from JavaFit were among participants at the Fall Festival.


To the Editor:
About three years ago while riding our
grandkids around looking at Christmas lights
we drove by a house that had the most beautiful
light display on both sides of the road. We had
to go back and forth several times to look at it
all. Now every year we have to go there first.
I did not know who lived there so I started
asking around and found out it was Mr. Ward
Daniels and family. I got in touch with him to
tell him how great it was and found out he had
been doing it since 1998, adding a new creation
each year. They began with just the basic lights
on the house and in the yard.
In 1999 Mrs. Daniels wanted to add a crucifix
so they took a bunch of clothes hangers and
traced their son Derrick to form Jesus and Mr.
Daniels welded them together, they also added
angels and a train. Each year after came a new
creation.
This year he is honoring the military with a
new creation. Mr. Daniels has been paying for
this each year alone, with a few donations
which they are very grateful for but it is not
near enough to cover the expenses which run
around $4500 a year. That includes replacement
bulbs, light bill, new creations and other repairs.
In these tough economic times he may not be
able to continue doing this.
I think this would be a great loss to our
community if he has to discontinue and I know
my grandchildren will be upset. If you have not
seen the display you need too. The opening
night will be Nov. 22, at around 5 p.m. and this
includes food, fun for the kids, fellowship and
Judge Peach flipping the switch to turn on the
display. Everyone is invited to come.
I am asking the public and any business that
wants to help keep this a part of Hamilton
County to donate to Mr. Daniels Christmas
Lights. The address to mail any donations is
4108 SW 100th Ave. Jasper, FL 32052 the phone
number is 386-303-1001 or you can take the
donations to him opening night. Hope to see
everyone there.


No snow, of course, but plenty of snow cones for everyone.

year. The organization
was successful in low-
ering workers' com-
pensation costs and
ensuring that injured
workers receive more
compensation that at-
torneys obtain from
fees. Farm Bureau also
protected the Universi-
ty of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences against
disproportionate bud-
get cuts. Farm Bureau
members have helped


to sustain county Ex-
tension offices in the
wake of declining rev-
enues for local govern-
ment. Above all, mem-
bers have been
guardians of private
property rights the
foundation of citizen-
ship in our republic.
Hoblick emphasized
that Farm Bureau
members oppose two
major proposals now
before the Congress.
The climate change
measure (cap and
trade) currently under


consideration would
add substantial ex-
penses to agricultural
producers and most
other citizens without
a demonstrable bene-
fit. The Clean Water
Restoration Act would
give the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection
Agency control over
every body of water in
the nation including
water in roadside
drainage ditches.
He said Farm Bureau


members will rally
their fellow citizens
around a "Don't Cap
our Future" campaign
to defeat the climate
change legislation and
will collaborate with
county commissions to
reject the Clean Water
Restoration Act.
"We have a powerful
organization, built on
the grassroots,"
Hoblick declared.
"Now, more than ever,
farmers and ranchers


need Florida Farm Bu-
reau to represent the


interests of agricul-
ture."

Other local efforts to
help fight tobacco ad-
diction are also under-

Rose Consultation Ser-
vices has been fighting
tobacco for over ten
years and recently col-
laborated with Suwan-
nee River AHEC and
other local entities to
make a more local im-
pact on Hamilton
County. This resulted
in the Hamilton Coun-
ty Tobacco-Free Part-
nership established to
raise awareness about
the negative effects of
tobacco use, create
policies to keep Florida
tobacco-free, and pro-
mote healthier


lifestyles. "I always en-
courage tobacco users
to take that first step
towards quitting. The
Great American
Smokeout has been
widely accepted and is
a great starting point
in one's journey to not
only living longer, but
living healthier. Flori-
da Quitline and
Suwannee River AHEC
are always available
and more than happy
to help those in Hamil-
ton County."
The Hamilton Coun-
ty Tobacco-Free Part-

forces with Suwannee
River AHEC to pro-
mote cessation and cre-
ate policy change.
They are currently re-
cruiting additional
members. To join, or

According to the

28,700 adult deaths an-

FARM-CITY Week
Nov. 20 26 with Hamilton County Farm Bureau


Damon Deas, president of Hamilton County Farm Bureau is congratulated
by John Hoblick, president of Florida Farm Bureau.


What does Farm-City Week

mean to Hamilton County?
Hamilton County Farm Bureau is pleased to recognize
FRM Nov. 20- 26 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 perseveres 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
well-being and to the strength of our nation's economy.
AFor this, we can give thanks.
In honor of Farm-City Week, Hamilton County
Farm Bureau is hosting a breakfast for local
Food rhouh.. officials and other guests. Hamilton

UF Veterinary Medical Center installs state-of-the-art MRI unit


A front view of the new Toshiba Titan MR unit recently in-
stalled at the UF Veterinary Medical Center."
(Photo courtesy of Toshiba)

GAINESVILLE, Fla. < system in place at the
A new clinical imaging University of Florida


Veterinary Medical Cen-
ter will enable veterinar-
ians to obtain diagnostic
images of previously in-
accessible and larger
parts of the body, such
as the upper legs of
horses, veterinarians
say.
The new 1.5 Tesla Ti-
tan MR, made by Toshi-
ba, has never previously
been used by any acade-
mic veterinary medical
center in the United
States and will provide
private practitioners and
pet owners with a high-
ly sophisticated, state-of-
the-art tool for pinpoint-
ing and treating disease
in their animals.


"There are many ad-
vantages to the Titan,
notably its 71-centimeter
patient aperture, known
as the open bore, which
will be a benefit in ex-
amining large animals,"
said Clifford "Kip"
Berry, a professor of ra-
diology at UF and chief
of the VMC's radiology
service.
Magnetic resonance
imaging, or MRI, is used
in veterinary medicine
to look inside an ani-
mal's body to evaluate
diseases and other prob-
lems. The new MR will
provide veterinarians
with a more detailed
anatomic picture


through high-resolution
imaging, and will enable
them to image arterial
and venous blood flow
with the injection of an
intravenous contrast
medium, UF veterinari-
ans said.
Berry said the new
equipment is "faster,
bigger and better" than
what has previously
been available, and pro-
vides UF with one more
powerful tool to provide
veterinarians and their
clients with the most ad-
vanced imaging ser-
vices.
"There is more space
available inside the ma-
chine to accommodate


CE5^


a-


patients, which should
allow for better imaging
of the mid- to upper ex-
tremity of horses," Berry
said. "The Titan also is
quieter than existing MR
equipment, making it
less likely that acoustic
noise will awaken pa-
tients during diagnostic
examinations."
The equipment is de-
signed so animals
should not have to be
repositioned during an
MR study. Veterinary
technologists also have
the flexibility to load
large animal patients
into the equipment from
the back end.
The VMC's new MR
unit and the 8-slice mul-
tidetector row Toshiba
Acquilion CT unit now
available at UF are
among the most power-
ful imaging tools cur-
rently available for vet-
erinary diagnostics in
the Southeast.
The MR unit allows
highly detailed images
to be obtained in multi-
ple planes of bone and
soft tissue in all species.
Foot, fetlock, suspensory
ligaments, carpus, hock
and heads are regions
capable of being exam-
ined through MR in the
horse, while spiral CT
may be used for 3-di-
mensional reconstruc-
tion in complex fracture
repair planning of the
extremity or stifle in
large animals. In small
animals, both modalities
are routinely applied to
neurologic and orthope-
dic cases at the VMC,
with additional studies
performed for radiation
planning and metastasis
evaluations.
"MR allows for ex-
quisite distinction be-
tween normal and ab-
normal tissues," Berry
said. "The use of special-
ized sequences further
increases the ability to
distinguish between dif-
ferent types of patholo-
gy ranging from hemor-
rhagic infarctions to pri-
mary brain tumors and
inflammatory disor-
ders."
Dr. Matthew Winter,
assistant professor of di-
agnostic imaging at UF's
VMC, added that MR
also reveals bone, ten-
don and ligament
pathology and can show
bone bruising, meniscal
damage and ligament
tears that go undetected
when using traditional
radiography.
"All of our radiolo-
gists have strong inter-
ests in cross-sectional
imaging, which gives
UF a unique ability to
serve the advanced
imaging needs of Flori-
da veterinarians," Win-
ter said.
In addition to MR and
CT, UF's VMC offers
nuclear medicine, or
scintigraphy, to both
small and large animal
patients. Teleradiology,
or film reading via satel-
lite, is a fee-based ser-
vice UF's veterinary ra-
diologists also offer to
private veterinary prac-
titioners who want to
make use of UF's exper-
tise remotely.

WASHINGTON, DC --
- On October 29, Con-
gressman Ander Cren-
shaw announced that
the Air Force has select-
ed the Jacksonville Inter-
national Airport as one
of two basing candidates
for the F-35 Joint Strike
Fighter Jet. Upon learn-
ing that Jacksonville and
Burlington, Vermont
have been chosen as bas-
ing candidates, Cren-
shaw issued the follow-
ing statement:
"The Air Force began
this analysis with over
205 possible locations.
While there are many
steps left before a final
choice is made, this an-
nouncement is welcome
news. Moreover, it
demonstrates the hard
work done to prevent
encroachment of our air-
space and ensure our
bases have modern facil-
ities and state of art


equipment," said Cren-
shaw. "As the basing
process moves forward,
I focus on ensuring that
all criteria are met and
Jacksonville has the best
opportunity to bed
down as many F-35 air-
craft as possible. I am
proud to have been able
to assist in this effort as a
member of the House
Appropriations Subcom-
mittee on Military Con-
struction and Veterans
Affairs and look forward
to working with local,
state and Florida Air Na-
tional Guard officials
and my Congressional
colleagues."
Jacksonville will un-
dergo an environmental
impact analysis and site
assessment before any fi-
nal decision. The Air
Force expects to an-
nounce its preferred lo-
cations in late spring of
2010.


Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Restoration Program
Accepting Applications
from Landowners


Submitted
TALLAHASSEE
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H.
Bronson announced to-
day that the depart-
ment s Division of
Forestry is offering the
Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Restoration Landowner
Incentive Program to eli-
gible non-industrial pri-
vate forest landowners.
The sign-up period will
run through November
20, 2009. The goal of the
program is to increase the
acreage of healthy Lon-
gleaf pine ecosystems in
Florida by helping non-
industrial private forest
(NIPF) landowners to
make the long term in-
vestment required to es-
tablish and maintain this
valuable ecosystem.
Longleaf pine forests
once covered a vast range
from Texas to Virginia,
but have been reduced to
less than four percent of
historical area due to con-
version to other land uses
and forest types. Lon-
gleaf pine forests are
highly valued for their re-
sistance to damage by in-
sects, diseases, wildfire,
and storms, and for their
yield of high quality
wood products, biologi-
cal diversity, and scenic
beauty. Research sug-
gests that longleaf pine
forests may be highly
adaptive to anticipated
effects of climate change,
as well as being capable
of sequestering more car-
bon than alternative for-
est types.
Under this program,
the Florida Division of
Forestry is putting Amer-
icans to work restoring
these valuable forests.


This work is helping to
restore a great American
ecosystem while creating
jobs for contractors and
laborers involved in tree
planting and forest im-
provement work, nurs-
ery workers, conserva-
tion planners and coordi-
nators.
The program offers in-
centive payments for
completion of timber
stand improvement, in-
vasive species control,
prescribed burning,
planting longleaf pine,
native plant understory
establishment, and me-
chanical underbrush
treatments. The pro-
gram is offered for NIPF
lands in Florida counties
located within the histor-
ical natural range of Lon-
gleaf Pine. Qualified
landowners may apply
for up to four approved
practices per year. The
minimum tract size re-
quirement is 10 acres and
funding requests may not
exceed $10,000.
Application forms and
more information on pro-
gram requirements and
procedures can be ob-
tained from a local Divi-
sion of Forestry office or
visit www.fl-dof.com to
obtain application mate-
rials and contact informa-
tion for county forester
offices. The Hamilton
County Forester is Greg
Staten and he can be
reached at 386-792-1269.
All qualifying applica-
tions received during the
sign-up period will be
evaluated and ranked for
funding approval. The
program is supported
through a grant from the
USDA Forest Service and
the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act.

David Matier: How late?


By David H. Matier, Doctor of
Pastoral Counseling
"Hath a nation changed
their gods which are yet no
gods? But my people have
changed their glory for that
which doth not profit. Be as-
tonished, O ye heavens, at
this, and be horribly afraid,
be ye very desolate, saith
the Lord. For my people
have committed two evils;
they have forsaken me the
fountain of living waters,
and hewed them out cis-
terns, broken cisterns, that
can hold no water." (Jeremi-
ah 2:11-13). What kind of
trade has been made? The
early settlers, such as those
who came on the
Mayflower, came searching
for a place where they could
worship the Lord God with
out being persecuted by
some state church. They
were people who put God
first in their lives the Bible
was the primary book in
their schools. The early set-
tlers didn't want to be told
by a particular church what
doctrine they must believe
but wanted the freedom to
read and interpret the Bible
for themselves. They were
men and women of high
moral and ethical character;
living holy and sanctified
lives. Their churches were a
central part of their lives.
The communities were built
around the church (this is
still evident in the small vil-
lages in New England
where the old churches still
stand in the center of the
quaint towns). All of the
great universities were es-
tablished by Bible believing
men only to be taken over
by those who would rather
have nothing to do with the
Bible in our day!
What kind of trade has
been made by the United
States? Has America traded
that which made her special
and unique for that which is
unprofitable? Many Ameri-
cans have turned their
backs on God and have
tried to find answers else-
where: in education, em-
ployment, money (I Timo-
thy 6:10), the cults (Human-
ism declared a religion in
1963, Spiritualism, Mod-
ernism, to just scratch the
surface) and everything but
the truths of God's Word -
"For the time will come
when they will not endure


sound doctrine; but a
their own lusts shall tI
heap to themselves tea
ers, having itching ears;"
Timothy 4:3). This is
time! A large portion of
people that attend chu
regularly are more inter
ed in getting out to go to
local buffet than they
about what the preache
saying! What's the mess
from God today needs to
the mindset of God's peo
- America needs to h

What's being seen
America and all around
world is a confirmation

Things that the
prophets could have
never imagined but
told us about are be-
ginning to happen. A
world-wide identifi-
cation mark (666)
may have been im-
possible to imagine at
one time but it's not
today! A cashless so-
ciety is practically
here already. All of
the horrible things
you witness in the
news and see on the
streets all around
you, though upset-
ting, should be en-
couraging because
they should tell you
that the coming of Je-
sus is getting closer.
It's sort of like the lit-
tle girl who was lying
in her bed listening
every hour to her
family's grandfather
clock because she
couldn't sleep. When
it got to 11:00 PM it
chimed once,
twice,...10 times, 11
times, 12, 13, 14, 15,
16, 17, and when it
chimed for the 18th
time she hurried into
her parents' bedroom
and woke up her par-
ents and said, "Mom,
Dad, it's later than it's
ever been before!"
Dr. John Walvoord
said, "I have been
studying prophecy
for many years (over
50), and while I do
not believe it is possi-
ble to set dates for the

day an unprecedented time
of world crises that can be
interpreted as being
preparatory for the coming
of the Lord. If there ever
was a time when Christians
should live every day as
though Christ could come
at any time, it is today."
Jesus said, "But of that
day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only,
But as the days of Noe were,
so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be"
(Matthew 24:36, 37)
Brother, Sister it is later
then it has ever been before!

As you're no doubt aware, the
long and deep recession has
resulted in the highest
unemployment rate in decades.
But if you've been laid off, or if
you fear a layoff may soon be
coming, you're less interested in
statistics than in your immediate
financial future. How will you
get by until you land a new job?
This is a scary question, of
course. And it can cause you to
look at all your available
financial resources including
your 401(k), which may well be
the largest single financial
resource you have.
But before you cash out your
401(k), make sure you
understand what's involved. Your
former employer is required to
withhold 20% of your account
balance to prepay federal taxes.
Also, all your 401(k) proceeds
will be taxed as ordinary income.
And if you're under age 59 1/2
when you liquidate your 401(k),
you may also be subject to a 10
percent penalty. And worst of all,
the money may not be available
to you when you retire.
Obviously, if you have no
other financial resources, you
may have no choice but to tap
into your 401(k) plan. However,
if you can find an alternative way
to tide yourself over until you're
working again, you may be better
off in the long run by not cashing
in your plan.
If you decide against the
"cash-out" option, what can you
do with your 401(k)? Here are
two possibilities:
Keep the money in your
former employer's plan. If your
former employer permits it, you
may able to leave your money in
your 401(k). You won't have to
pay any immediate taxes, and
your money can continue to grow

tax deferred. But you may no
longer be able to add funds to
your account.
Roll your money over to an
IRA. If you roll over your 401(k)
assets to an IRA, you'll avoid
paying immediate taxes, and
your money can continue to
grow tax deferred. Furthermore,
you can fund your IRA with
many types of investments, as
opposed to a 401(k), which may
offer only a handful of choices.
And when you can afford it, you
can make additional
contributions to your IRA. Also,
when you retire, you may find
that an IRA gives you more
flexibility in making withdrawals
than a 401(k).
While there are some clear
benefits to keeping your 401(k)
with your former employer or
moving it to an IRA, neither
choice helps you answer the
question of how you'll make it,
financially speaking, until you're
working again. If you've built up
a cash cushion in preceding
years, you can turn to it now, of
course. And if you've created an
investment portfolio outside your
401(k), take a close look at it.
You can consider adjusting your
investment mix to add more
income-producing investments,
if appropriate. Keep in mind that
your portfolio should reflect your
risk tolerance, long-term goals
and time horizon.
A layoff is never easy and it
can force you to make some
tough choices. But if you can
help protect your 401(k) today,
you'll be helping yourself
tomorrow.

NFCC Tuition Payment Plan is

great way to pay for college


Submitted by: NFCC Office of College Ad-
vancement

MADISON, FL North Florida Com-
munity College has an easy way for stu-
dents to pay tuition for Spring Term 2010
the NFCC Tuition Payment Plan. The
new payment option was created in the
fall to make college more affordable for
NFCC students. According to Amelia
Mulkey, NFCC Dean of Administrative
Services, the new payment option has
been successful with 80 students utiliz-
ing the service during Fall Term 2009.
"I expect the new payment option to
be popular this spring as well," said
Mulkey. "The payment option allows
students to spread out tuition fees into
several payments instead of paying all
the tuition fees up front."
Eligible students have the option to
pay either one-half or one-fourth of the
total tuition cost at the beginning of the
term and then make interest-free pay-
ments on the remaining balance during
the semester. Payment terms are set up
based on the student's income or finan-


cial situation, with all fees due by the last
date to withdraw (March 12 for Spring
Term 2010). The process is set up
through NFCC, not an outside financial
institution. Students who enroll in the
payment plan are required to pay all fees
in full by the designated date or they will
be withdrawn from all courses without
refund.
NFCC's fall classes begin Jan. 6. Open
registration begins Nov. 23. Currently
enrolled students can register as early as
Nov. 16. Those interested in applying
for the Tuition Payment Plan should con-
tact Amelia Mulkey at (850) 973-1604 or
email MulkeyA@nfcc.edu prior to the
start of classes. NFCC also offers other fi-
nancial aid opportunities such as grants
and scholarships. NFCC's Financial Aid
office can be contacted at (850) 973-1621
or FinancialAid@nfcc.edu. More infor-
mation about NFCC scholarships is
available from the NFCC Foundation of-
fice, (850) 973-9423 or
Foundation@nfcc.edu. More informa-
tion, including NFCC's spring schedule
of courses, is available at www.nfcc.edu.

firm title of Plaintiff in and to real property
located in Hamilton County, Florida pur-
suant to Florida Statutes 65.061.

2. The Plaintiffs are the owners of the fol-
lowing real property: SEE EXHIBIT A"AT-
TACHED HERETO AND MADE A PART
HEREOF
EXHIBIT "A"

Begin at the southeast corner of Lot 12,
Block 102, according to Lang's Map of the
City of Jasper, in Section 6, township 1
North, Range 14 East, Hamilton County,
Florida, which said Point of Beginning is
also the Southwest corner of lands de-
scribed in that certain Warranty Deed to
Cecil L. Gornto and Florence Gornto, his
wife, dated February 28, 1977, recorded
in Official Record Book 132, Page 868;
thence run West, along the North right of
way line of Rice Street (also known as 3rd
Street, Southwest), a distance of 100.00
feet; thence run North, parallel with the
East line of said Lot 12, a distance of
210.00 feet, more or less, to the South line
of lands of Jasper Laundry and Dry
Cleaners, Inc.; thence run East along the
said South line of lands of Jasper Laundry
and Dry Cleaners, Inc., to the Northeast
corner of said Lot 12, which is also the
Northwest corner of the land described in
the aforesaid deed to Cecil L. Gornto and
Florence Gornto, his wife, recorded in Of-
ficial Record Book 132, Page 868; thence
run South, along the East line of said Lot
12, being also the West line of the lands
described in the aforesaid deed to Cecil L.
Gornto and Florence Gornto, his wife,
recorded in Official Record Book 132,
Page 868, a distance of 200.00 feet, more
or less, to the POINT OF BEGINNING;
and being bounded as follows: On the
East by the lands of Cecil L. Gornto and
Florence Gornto, his wife; on the South by
Rice Street which is also known as 3rd
Street, Southwest; on the West by other
lands of Grantor; and, on the North by
lands of Jasper Laundry and Dry Clean-
ers, Inc.

Plaintiffs are residents of Hamilton Coun-
ty, Florida and claim title to said property
and deraigns title as follows:

(a) Certificate of Title executed by Clerk of
Circuit Court of Hamilton County, Florida
to Cecil L. Gornto and Florence Gornto,
his wife recorded July 26, 1991 in Official
Records Book 288, Page 183 in the Pub-
lic Records of Hamilton County, Florida

(Exhibit "B").

4. Plaintiff has paid taxes on the subject
property and has possessed, maintained,
enjoyed the use of and otherwise have
had open, exclusive and continuous pos-
session of said property since July 26,
1991 and has had no challenge or dispute
from any person or persons as to their
ownership of the property

5. Any and all claims, right, title or interest
of Defendants to the real property de-
scribed herein above have been extin-
guished by the Certificate of Title de-
scribed herein; and Plaintiff is the true
record title owner to the real property and
the legal and equitable owner thereof in
fee simple, and as such, are entitled to
have their title to the real property quieted
and confirmed by the court under provi-
sions of Florida Statute 65.061.

6. Defendants' last known addresses are:


(a) W. B. Lewis, unknown
(b) Pauline Lewis, unknown
(c) Richard P McPherson, unknown
(d) Mary V McPherson, unknown

7. Plaintiff has made a diligent search and
inquiry to ascertain the whereabouts of
Defendants and have discovered that
there is no current known address for De-
fendants and Plaintiff has been unable to
locate them. (See Affidavit of diligent
Search and Inquiry attached hereto as

Exhibit "C").

8. It is not known whether Defendant(s)
are dead or alive. All defendants are over
the age of eighteen years.

9. The subject property was conveyed to
W. B. Lewis and Pauline Lewis by virtue of
Warranty Deed recorded April 18, 1944, in
Deed Book 196, Page 27, of the Public
Records of Hamilton County, Florida (Ex-
hibit "D"). Thereafter, a Life Estate interest
was conveyed by Mallory and Mae Belle
Tuten to Defendant, Richard P McPher-
son and his wife, Mary V McPherson, by
virtue of Warranty Deed recorded Sep-
tember 24, 1948, in Deed Book 33, Page
272, said Public Records of Hamilton
County, Florida (Exhibit "E"). After diligent
search of the Public Records of Hamilton
County, a deed to deraign title to Mallory
and Mae Belle Tuten, cannot be located,
which creates a cloud on the title of the
subject property Also, a deed relinquish-
ing the life estate interest of Defendant,
Richard P. McPherson and Mary V.
McPherson, could not be located which
creates a cloud on the title to subject
property

10. Plaintiff is the proper person to have
the property in her name in fee simple and
be free of any cloud on title.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays as follows:

A. That upon final hearing the fee simple
title to the above described property be
adjudged to be in Plaintiff;

B. That Defendants, each of them, be re-
quired to set forth the nature of their
claims in and to said property and that all
adverse claims by Defendants or those
claiming by, through, under or against
them be determined by judgment of this
court be null and void;

C. That all right, title and interests of De-
fendants and those parties claiming by,
through, under or against them be forever
quieted and confirmed in Plaintiff;

D. That Defendants and those parties
claiming by, through, under, or against
them be perpetually enjoined from ascer-
taining any right, title, or interest in and to
the above described property;

E. That this Court grant such other relief
as it deems appropriate.

Under penalties of perjury I declare that I
have read the foregoing and the facts al-
leged are true, to the best of our knowl-
edge and belief.
