Santa hits town tomorrow


Christmas in the Park
promises plenty of fun
By Joyce Marie Taylor
Guess what, kids! Santa Claus is coming to
Jasper! So, grab your hat and coat, put on a huge
smile, and bring your parents out for an evening
of fun tomorrow at Christmas in the Park.
The festivities begin at 6 p.m. sharp, so don't be


late. You don't want to miss the spectacular
parade down Hatley Street. At least 40
participants are expected to wow the crowd,
including the one and only Santa Claus himself,
who will be bringing up the rear.
The parade route will begin at the Riding Arena
and it will wind up at the city park next to the
Bank of America building. Once the parade ends,
you will be entertained by a local dance team, so
be sure to stick around for that and much more.


There will be local arts and crafts vendors on
hand throughout the park to help you with your
last-minute Christmas shopping, as well as food
vendors, who will have all your favorites,
including scrumptious cotton candy and delicious
barbecue delights.
While you're strolling through the park
admiring all the unique arts and crafts, keep your

Jasper veterans TSgt. Jason

and wives of VFW Post 8095 at
a recent meeting.
Both men had been
recipients of boxes mailed to
deployed members of the
military over the past two
years. They thanked the
members and wives for
supporting them and other
troops in that way.
"It's a wonderful thing
you're doing," one of the men
said. "It's such an
encouragement for us to
receive boxes from home."

New Shop Opens at Advent Christian A
Riverside Gifts Offers Unique Gifts ,'"


Submitted
Riverside Gifts is now open at Ad-
vent Christian Village in Dowling
Park. Located in the Village Square,
the quaint shop offers unique gifts in-
cluding travel books, children's books,
toys, games, hand crafted jewelry,
totes, men's gifts, clocks, and other
various gifts of distinction.
It is another example of a service to
Advent Christian Village that is made
possible by the many volunteers who


give of their time. A team of volunteers
headed up by Herb & Emelie Horsley
runs Riverside Gifts. The Horsleys are
no stranger to the retail gift business,
as they owned and operated a shop in
Vero Beach, FL for 25 years prior to
moving to Advent Christian Village.
As with all Village retail shops, the
proceeds go to benefit the ministries of
Advent Christian Village.
The Village Square at Advent Chris-
tian Village is located in Dowling Park,
Florida, just off of CR250 or CR136.

It doesn't take much for me to get behind, so it
seems, but will try to get caught up from Thanks-
giving, probably not before Christmas though. I do
need to hear from you to help me move along.
Thanks to Anna Cameron, she knows how impor-
tant it is to be in touch and she does well in keeping
me informed as I visit with her at Suwannee Valley
Nursing Center. I also talked with her grand-
daughter, Karen Law Prine to learn all about their
great family Thanksgiving. Thirteen family mem-
bers, Anna, Linda Law and family, family members
of Karen and her husband Robert Prine, all gathered
at the home of Karen and Robert for a day of feast-
ing and visiting, Karen said they had a great time.
Anna recently had a visit from her sister-in-law,
Claudia Cameron (her husband was a brother to
Anna's husband, (Roy Cameron). Claudia's daugh-
ter Susan and her husband Mike Polsnak from Char-
lotte NC visited Susan's mother in Marietta, GA and
they brought Claudia to visit Anna and were going
on to Orlando. Anna had a nice visit with them at
Suwannee Valley Nursing Center.
Suwannee Valley Nursing Center has been festive
for the past weeks to celebrate Thanksgiving and
getting ready for Christmas. They are back in the
kitchen now in time to move forward to the celebra-
tion of Christmas. Their scenes in front are very
beautiful. They will be ready to watch the Christmas
parade, there will be more about that soon.
We attended a "Flag Burning Ceremony" at the
VFW building Monday morning. It was an impres-
sive service. Members provided, with the help of
their wives and others, a feast for breakfast, followed
by the service. The ROTC from Hamilton County
HS presented the Colors and was an important part
of the service accompanied by their Officers. VFW
Commander Lamar Royals, assisted by Emmett
Mathis, demonstrated the manner in which a flag
was to be burned, which is the proper way to dis-
pose of flags that are no longer of the honorable
means of presentation, if I do not explain this prop-


early, it is to the best of my ability, and I do know that
it is done with respect. A few days ago in going
through a few of my many books I came across my
copy of "Pearl Harbor", and as I read some of it, won-
der if our young people of this day and time even
know the significance of Pearl Harbor Day. A Day
that Will Live Forever in Infamy. Maybe some of
you could share with me your thoughts and remem-
brances of that day. I remember it well, I was 14 and
having a PYF, Presbyterian Youth Fellowship meet-
ing at my home when the news came over the radio
(an old Philco) and one reason it was so important
to me, an uncle of mine (career Navy) had just
moved his family to Pearl Harbor in August of that
year and it was weeks before we knew they were ok.
He was stationed at the Aloha Tower and the family
lived on the main island. Several years ago Dr. Bil-
ly and Martha Mitchell, Wade and I went to Hawaii
for a week, Billy and Wade visited the ARIZONA,
Martha and I did not make that, but the men talked
about it for hours, remembering their time in the ser-
vice of our country.
If these memories are not of interest to you, let me
know and I will try to change my approach, but I feel
that there are many of you, as I converse with you,
who like to recall "our history" and it may give you
a chance to share some of your memories with your
children and grandchildren, things that they may
not learn in their studies of history in school.
The memories that we "old folks" recall will not be
found in history books or on TV in reality, there was
no such thing in those days. We have come a long
way, but the past is very much a part of their her-
itage and also affects the future of our country.
Wow, forgive me, I got carried away.
This is the way in which I use my computer, and I
hope you will forgive me if I share a little of it with
you this week, and as we remember the "Reason for
the Season", be thankful that we can have cere-
monies as we had this week, we can attend Church
and worship as we please, without fear.
Send me some good news for the coming weeks,
start today getting in touch so we can usher in the
Season of Christmas with thankfulness.

Who is your trust in?


By David H. Matier, Doctor of
Pastoral Counseling
Many people had put a lot of con-
fidence in Bernie Madoff and his ac-
complice that was found at the bot-
tom of a swimming pool in one of
his multi million dollar mansions
recently. Bernie apparently didn't
spill the beans on his "friend" while
his "friend" cashed in and he was in
prison. Meanwhile they both had
bilked billions out of those who had
"trusted in them!"
God's Word states, "Thus saith
the Lord; Cursed be the man that
trusteth in man, and maketh flesh
his arm, and Whose heart departeth
from the Lord. For he shall be like
the heath in the desert, and shall not
see when good cometh; but shall in-
habit the parched places in the
wilderness in a salt land and not in-
habited. Blessed is the man that
trusteth in the Lord, and whose


hope the Lord is...The heart is de-
ceitful above all things, and desper-
ately wicked: who can know it?...he
that getteth riches, and not by right,
shall leave them in the midst of his
day, and at his end shall be a fool"
(Jeremiah 17:5-7, 9, 11). If you hope
to prosper in good times or bad,
when the economy is up or down
you must trust in God and what He
says in his Word not on what the
financial gurus are saying (the prog-
nosticators "Thou art wearied in
the multitude of thy counsels, Let
now the...prognosticators, stand up,
and save thee from these things that
shall come upon thee. Behold they
shall be as stubble; the fire shall
bur them; they shall not deliver
themselves from the power of the
flame ; there shall not be a coal to
warm at, nor fire to sit before it" Isa-
iah 47:13, 14).
You must be able to trust God!


You've bought a lot of lottery tickets
because some man has promised a
big pay off. Have you every tried
tithing? God promises a big pay off.
Who are you going to trust? Look at
what God's book says, "Bring ye all
the tithes into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and PROVE ME now herewith,
saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not
open you the windows of heaven,
and pour you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough to
receive it," (Malachi 3:10 -emphasis
mine). Now this is a guarantee! No
lottery ticket brings a guarantee like
that.
Try it. Prove God. Prove that you
are trusting God more than man
and you'll never be disappointed.
He will not let you down nor disap-
point you. He loves you.

Leading Alzheimer's researcher


joins UF to fight brain diseases


Submitted

GAINESVILLE, Fla. <
A leader in the fight
against brain diseases
and in drug discovery
to help Alzheimer's pa-
tients has joined the
University of Florida
College of Medicine, in-
terim dean Michael
Good, M.D., announced
today.
Todd Golde, M.D.,
Ph.D., formerly the
chairman of the depart-
ment of neuroscience at
Mayo Clinic in Jack-
sonville, will create and
direct the College of
Medicine's new Center
for Translational Re-
search in Neurodegen-
erative Disease, Good
said. He will lead an ef-
fort to develop treat-
ments and diagnostics
for Alzheimer's disease,
dementias, Parkinson's
disease and other neu-
rodegenerative diseases.
"Dementia impacts
our lives with such dev-
astation, and it is esti-
mated that it will touch
nearly a half a million
patients and their fami-
lies in Florida alone in
the coming year," Good
said. "Dr. Golde's re-
cruitment to UF
strengthens our team
with one of the brightest
minds working in this
field. He and we are de-
termined to beat this
foe."
Golde's work comple-
ments existing efforts by
UF neuroscientists, neu-
rologists and McKnight
Brain Institute re-
searchers, according to
David Guzick, M.D.,
Ph.D., UF's senior vice
president for health af-
fairs and president of
the UF&Shands Health
System, who strongly
encouraged Golde's re-
cruitment.
"We're interested in


building a world-class
research program, and
Dr. Golde has demon-
strated he can build a
team focused in an im-
portant area, in this case
Alzheimer's disease and
neurodegenerative dis-
eases," Guzick said.
"This is a very oppor-
tune time with the
opening of the Biomed-
ical Sciences Building to
put the resources of
such a state-of-the-art
building in the hands of
someone who can use
them so productively."
Golde, who received
his doctoral and medical
degrees at Case Western
University, began his
professional career as an
assistant professor of
pathology and laborato-
ry medicine at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania
School of Medicine. He
was chief resident for
laboratory medicine at
the Hospital of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania
before joining the Mayo
Clinic in Jacksonville in
1997 as an assistant pro-
fessor of pharmacology.
He became chair of the
neuroscience depart-
ment at Mayo Clinic in
Jacksonville in 2003.
He expects to further
advance his research
program at UF. "I am
extremely excited about
this opportunity to
work with the faculty at
UF and build a group
focused on doing some-
thing about major neu-
rodegenerative dis-
eases," Golde said.
In addition to direct-
ing the UF Center for
Translational Research
in Neurodegenerative
Disease, Golde will be a
professor of neuro-
science, according to
Lucia Notterpek, Ph.D.,
who chairs the neuro-
science department.
"He has been at the


forefront of Alzheimer's
disease research and has
an incredible scientific
reputation," Notterpek
said. "I think Dr.
Golde's arrival enhances
the department's image
nationally and will help
us obtain large, pro-
grammatic grants. It's
going to be a great boost
for us and very benefi-
cial to the College of
Medicine and the
Health Science Center."
Notterpek expects ad-
ditional recruitments
will further grow
Golde's research group
and the neuroscience
department.
"He is a good fit for
our faculty, students
and postdocs," she said.
For example, Golde's
work dovetails with UF
neuroscientist and MBI
researcher David
Borchelt's studies of
amyloid beta protein,
believed to contribute to
the accumulation of
"brain plaque" in
Alzheimer's patients.
Writing in Nature in
2008, Golde helped ex-
plain the molecular in-
terplay between amy-
loid beta protein and a
class of therapeutic
agents known as gam-
ma-secretase modula-
tors, or GSMs, now be-
ing tested in patients
with Alzheimer's dis-
ease
Golde's group discov-
ered GSMs work by re-
ducing production of
longer, toxic pieces of
the amyloid beta pro-
tein, while enhancing
production of shorter
amyloid strands that
may actually thwart
Alzheimer's disease.
"He is a superb
Alzheimer's disease and
neuroscience researcher
< one of the best and
most respected in the
world," said Dennis A.


Steindler, executive di-
rector of the McKnight
Brain Institute. "He is
not only going to com-
plement our existing
programs, he will create
new ones that will en-
able us to target all neu-
rological disorders."
His experience in
drug discovery and ex-
pertise in transforming
laboratory discoveries
into clinical therapies
and diagnostics will be
welcome, according to
Tetsuo Ashizawa, M.D.,
chairman of the depart-
ment of neurology.
"This is an extraordi-
nary fit with a variety of
our researchers fighting
to end neurodegenera-
tive diseases and cogni-
tive decline," Ashizawa
said. "My excitement
lies in the collaborations
and new relationships
that we will build, and
how that will enrich the
clinical and translational
research in the neurolo-
gy department. This
group will really add
fuel to the fire."
The new Center for
Translational Research
in Neurodegenerative
Disease fills a niche in
efforts to speed labora-
tory discoveries to the
clinic, said Stephen Sug-
rue, Ph.D., senior associ-
ate dean for research af-
fairs at the College of
Medicine.
"This is the first center
we've specifically
geared toward transla-
tional research," Sugrue
said. "Our intent is to
fully understand the
mechanisms of neurode-
generative diseases and
identify targets for
health interventions."
Golde will meet with
College of Medicine fac-
ulty and plan his lab
space as he begins the
task of building the cen-
ter.

United States and five
international centers is
funded jointly by the
NIH and private dia-
betes foundations.
Through the research
network, scientists hope
to improve the under-
standing of the natural
history of type 1 dia-
betes, screen and identi-
fy persons at risk and
conduct clinical trials to
evaluate promising new
therapies that prevent,
slow or reverse the pro-
gression of the disease.
"Involvement in Trial-
Net is critical because
these kinds of studies
require participation
from hundreds of pa-
tients if we are to really
understand what treat-
ments are effective,"
said Dr. Desmond
Schatz, associate chair-
man of pediatrics at the
UF College of Medicine
and medical director of


the UF Diabetes Center
of Excellence. "One cen-
ter cannot recruit
enough patients to reach
these numbers, so we
are successful only if we
work together."
Type 1 diabetes, pre-
viously known as juve-
nile diabetes, is usually
diagnosed in children
and young adults. It is
an autoimmune disease
in which the insulin-
producing cells in the
pancreas are destroyed
by the immune system,
requiring daily insulin
replacement and fre-
quent blood sugar
checks by patients. Type
1 diabetes is one of the
most prevalent chronic
diseases diagnosed in
children in the United
States.
UF's TrialNet investi-
gators include Schatz,
Dr. Michael Clare-Sal-
zler, chairman of the de-


apartment of pathology,
immunology and labo-
ratory medicine; Mark
Atkinson, professor of
pathology and the
American Diabetes As-
sociation eminent schol-
ar chair; and Dr.
Michael Haller, assistant
professor of pediatric
endocrinology.
As one of the original
institutions participating
in TrialNet, UF has been
a top performing center
in the network.
TrialNet studies at UF
include a vaccination
study that aims to pre-
serve insulin production
in patients with newly
onset diabetes, a study
to determine the risk of
diabetes for family
members of children
with type 1 and research
into the prevention or
delay of diabetes
through the administra-
tion of insulin.

UF participating in new recruitment


registry for research studies


Submitted

GAINESVILLE, Fla.- People within the Uni-
versity of Florida community who want to par-
ticipate in research studies can now connect on-
line with researchers nationwide by joining Re-
searchMatch.org.
ResearchMatch is a not-for-profit website that
brings together researchers and people who
want to learn more about research studies in a
secure and convenient manner. UF is one of the
52 institutions participating in this easy-to-use,
free and safe way for volunteers to connect with
researchers studying a wide range of diseases.
ResearchMatch is the product of the Clinical
and Translational Science Awards Consortium, a
national network of medical research institu-
tions working together to improve how biomed-
ical research is conducted across the country.
The CTSA is led by the National Center for Re-
search Resources of the National Institutes of
Health.
"This will be a great opportunity for people in


the medical community to connect with re-
sources and be matched with potential clinical
trials that could help them or someone they
know," said Peter Stacpoole, M.D., Ph.D., a pro-
fessor of medicine and biochemistry and molec-
ular biology, and the principal investigator of
UF's CTSA.
The site communicates to a broad audience be-
cause it reaches beyond just federally sponsored
clinical trials, Stacpoole said.
ResearchMatch works by matching anyone re-
siding in the United States interested in partici-
pating in a research trial with researchers who
are approved to recruit potential research volun-
teers through the system.
After an individual has registered to volun-
teer, ResearchMatch's security features ensure
that personal information is protected until vol-
unteers authorize the release of their contact in-
formation to a specific study that may be of in-
terest to them. Volunteers are notified electroni-
cally that they are a possible match, and then
they can decide whether to release their contact


information.
"ResearchMatch offers a convenient solution
to the complex, competitive and often costly
participant recruitment system," said Gordon
Bernard, M.D., principal investigator of the Van-
derbilt CTSA, which hosts the national registry.
"NIH data indicates that 85 percent of trials
don't finish on time due to low patient partici-
pation, and 30 percent of trial sites fail to enroll
even a single patient. We aim to help combat
these challenges with ResearchMatch."
For the first year of the project, only re-
searchers affiliated with participating CTSA in-
stitutions may be eligible to utilize the recruit-
ment tool, but plans exist to ensure the recruit-
ment tool will be available beyond the CTSA by
2011.
Before researchers can effectively use the reg-
istry, a large number of volunteers will need to
be a part of ResearchMatch. As such, researchers
will not be given access to begin looking for po-
tential study volunteers through ResearchMatch
until approximately January 2010.

Hamilton Grads Excel on the College Level Court
By Paula G. Williams
Hamilton County fans traveled down
to Lakeland recently to witness South-
eastern University take on Florida Chris-
tian College. Malcolm Pollock, 2008
HCHS graduate and son of Dwight & FM,
Jackie Pollock, plays for SU. Tiwan
Cooks, 2009 HCHS graduate and son of
Vera Dye and Warren Cooks, plays for
FCC. The fans consisting of family and
friends was so excited because this was .
such a change. This group rallied be-
hind these young men for years on
Hamilton High's basketball team and it
was strange having to cheer on both
ends of the court.
Southeastern pulled out early on but it
was great basketball. Malcolm and Ti-
wan traded plays all night and it was
something to see them guarding each
other throughout the game. The final
score was 91-70 with Southeastern on
top.
We are so proud of these young men
and the job they continue to do on the
court and in the classroom. Their coach-
es and teammates reiterate, "Malcolm
and Tiwan are two fine young men and
it is a pleasure working with them." The Hamilton Fan Club Photos submitted by Paula G. Williams

Outta' the Woods

Give thanks for hunting seasons galore


Tony Young's an avid
sportsman and native
Floridian. He's the media re-
lations coordinator for the
FWC's Division of Hunting
and Game Management and
lives in Tallahassee with his
family.

By Tony Young

November means the
2009-10 huntin' season's
in full swing. This
month, general gun, fall
turkey, quail and gray
squirrel, snipe and the
second phase of mourn-
ing and white-winged
dove hunting seasons
open.
The first thing you
need to do is pick up a
$17 Florida resident
hunting license. Non-
residents pay $46.50 for a
10-day license or $151.50
for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one
of Florida's many
wildlife management ar-
eas (WMAs), you'll also
need a $26.50 manage-
ment area permit, but
don't forget to study the
brochure for the specific
area you plan to hunt,
because dates, bag limits
and rules differ greatly
from area to area.
You can get these
brochures at tax collec-
tors' offices and regional
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) offices in
close proximity to the
WMA, or you can down-
load them from
MyFWC.com/ Hunting.
You can buy your li-
cense and permits over
the telephone by calling
toll-free 888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or online at
www.wildlifelicense.co
m/fl. Just have your
credit card ready. You
also can purchase them


from tax collectors' of-
fices and most retail out-
lets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies.
The general gun sea-
son runs Nov. 14-Jan. 24
in the Central Hunting
Zone. In the Northwest
Zone, it comes in
Thanksgiving Day and
lasts four days through
Nov. 29. Two weeks lat-
er, the season reopens
Dec. 12 and runs through
Feb. 17. For readers
hunting the South Hunt-
ing Zone, the general
gun season's already in
and lasts through Jan. 10.
Hunters can take
bucks having at least one
antler 5 inches or longer.
On private lands, the
daily bag limit for deer is
two; except spring
turkey. Check the
WMA brochure to be
certain.
The highly anticipated
antlerless deer season,
often called "doe week",
is Dec. 19-25 in the
Northwest Zone, Nov.
21-27 in the Central Zone
and Nov. 7-13 in the
South Hunting Zone.
During doe week, the
daily bag limit is one
buck and one doe, or two
bucks. You may not
take two does in one day
like you may during
archery season, and
spotted fawns are never
legal game. And by the
way, WMAs do not have
an antlerless deer season.
If you hunt with deer
dogs anywhere in Flori-
da, special rules and reg-
istration requirements
may apply, so call the
FWC for details.
Fall turkey season in
the Northwest Hunting
Zone is Nov. 26-29 and
Dec. 12 Jan. 17. In the
Central and South zones,
it's Nov. 14-Jan. 10. Only
bearded turkeys and
gobblers are legal game,
and you must have a $5
turkey permit to hunt
them. The bag limit is
one bird per day, and a
total of two during the
archery, crossbow, muz-
zleloading gun and fall
turkey seasons com-
bined.
It's also against the law
to hunt turkeys in


Holmes County during
the fall season.
Quail and gray squir-
rel season runs statewide
Nov. 14-March 7.
There's a daily bag limit
of 12 for each, but shoot-
ing fox squirrels is
against the law.
Shooting hours for
deer, turkeys, quail and
gray squirrels is a half-
hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset.
All legal firearms, muz-
zleloaders, bows, cross-
bows and handguns are
legal for taking these res-
ident game animals dur-
ing the general gun,
antlerless deer, fall
turkey, and quail and
gray squirrel seasons.
Snipe hunting in Flori-
da ranks second in the
nation in number of
birds harvested each
year, and the season runs
Nov. 1-Feb. 15 statewide.
The second phase of the
mourning and white-
winged dove season also
comes in this month and
runs Nov. 14-29. Shoot-
ing hours for migratory
game birds are one-half
hour before sunrise to
sunset. The bag limit for
snipe is eight; and for
doves, the bag limit is 15.
You must get a no-cost
migratory bird permit if
you plan to hunt snipe,
doves or any other mi-
gratory game birds.
The FWC even pro-
vides an online "Dove
Hunters' Hotline",
which gives up-to-date
information on Florida's
public dove fields. The
address is
MyFWC.com/Dove, and
it's updated every
Thursday throughout
the dove season. Infor-
mation includes dove
densities, previous
weeks' harvests and field
conditions.
Whether small-game
hunting with friends and
family or hunting solo,
going after that monster
buck, boar hog or big
tom, November brings
loads of great hunting
opportunities.
Here's wishing you a
happy Thanksgiving and
a successful hunting sea-
son.

December 7, 1941, the Japanese at-
tacked Pearl Harbor demolishing the
docked U. S. Fleet on that Sunday morn-
ing. Monday December 7, 2009, 68 years
later, VFW Post 8095 held a memorial
service along with a flag burning cere-
mony to remember this day in history.
VFW Commander Lamar Royals,
Hamilton County Veterans' Service Offi-
cer Bo Beauchemin, and many veterans
to include spouses of late veterans at-
tended the service. The VFW extended
an invitation for Hamilton County High
School AFJROTC Unit FL-943 to attend
this wonderful ceremony also.
Mr. Royals started the service with a


brief history of Pearl Harbor followed by
instructions on how to dispose of "Old
Glory". After showing how to separate
the union from the stars and stripes, Mr.
Royals then placed the remnants of the
flag into a fire. At this time Reveverend
Roger Hutto played TAPS.
This was a perfect time for AFJROTC
to be a part of the ceremony considering
the unit has just completed a lesson on
the history of the United States flag.
AFJROTC was represented by Lt. Col.
Darrell Davis, MSgt Keith Snipes, Cadets
Clarence Pittman, Kentachia Anderson,
Stephan Hill, Amber Parry, Brefan John-
son, Aaron Udell, Deonte Simmons, and
Jonathan Ponds. AFJROTC donated 3
flags for the ceremony for disposal.

Hiking the Appalachian Trail


AT hikers from left to right: Bear Slayer, Tortuga, Many Blisters, and Father Mountain. Photo submitted by Brian Buffington:


By Brian E,ffii'ft.. Minister of
Music/Youth
First Baptist Church of Jasper

There I was, lying in bed, too anx-
ious to wait for the alarm to go off. (By
the way, I hate the sound of an alarm)
It was finally time to start my planned
adventure. Goodbye comfortable bed,
goodbye central heat and a/c, good-
bye porcelain friend. Yes, I was off to
somewhere a little less convenient and
whole lot less populated.
This would be my 9th hike on the
AT. It would be the second time that I
have organized a men's hike while
working at First Baptist Church,
Jasper, FL. For those of you who don't
do abbreviations other than texting
shortcuts, AT is a quicker way to say
Appalachian Trail. This isn't your


momma's trail (no offense to mothers),
but instead a 2,000-mile plus foot path-
way through some of God's greatest
creations and wonders. It stretches
from Georgia to Maine, weaving itself
through an array of landscapes along
the Appalachian Mountains.
Ever since my dad introduced me to
this cardiac, respiratory, and muscular
workload, I have been hooked. You
see, it's much more than a sweat fest.
It's a challenge...it's an adventure...it
can even serve as a worship service
like none you've ever had before.
What makes the whole event even bet-
ter is bringing people along. If you've
experienced something amazing, you
want to share that experience. You
know what I'm talking about. For in-
stance, you go to a fast food establish-
ment and find out that everyone there


is capable of getting your order correct
(and the sweet tea is good too). You're
going to get the word out. No doubt
about it. It's a big deal.
In the ministry, many people speak
of "mountain top experiences". I say,
what better way to have such an expe-
rience, than to actually hike to the top
of a mountain. Just makes sense to me.
So to continue my story; three
friends, my dad, his border collie, my-
self and lots of freeze dried meals and
Ramen noodles left Jasper at 5:30AM
and headed for Franklin, SC. Food for
thought, hikers take lots of dried foods
to help minimize pack weight. Once
arriving at the trailhead, we were
greeted by rain clouds and light rain.
Not such a great start, especially when
it was 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Howev-
er, it didn't take long for the clouds to
subside and our bodies to warm up.
Before you knew it, everyone was
sweating and shedding clothing lay-
ers.
Not long after, my dad made the de-
cision to turn back because of a sudden
illness. He was unsure if he would be
able to complete the hike, and didn't
want to be a hindrance during the rest
of the trip. Everybody was a little
bummed out, but respected his con-
cerns. After a few hours and about 5
miles later, we reached camp, Siler
Bald Shelter. All along the AT, organi-
zations have built and placed small
shelters within a day's hiking distance
between each other. This makes it eas-
ier for thru-hikers (people who hike
the whole AT at a time) to achieve
more miles, by allowing them not to
carry a tent. Shelters are also the per-
fect spot to take cover during a storm.
To our surprise, we would actually
have the whole shelter to ourselves
that night. Though some of us had
made plans to set up tents, we chose to
just sleep in the shelter, because of the
prior rainfall and saturated ground.
Now sleeping in a shelter is an expe-
rience in itself. The reason...mice.
Somehow, AT mice have figured out
that the best way to stay alive is to in-
habit every shelter and eat all possible
foods. Because of these highly intelli-
gent creatures, hikers have also smart-
ed up some and started hanging their
packs from the ceiling (which only
slows them down). So while lying in
the shelter, you constantly hear the pit-
ter-patter of little mice feet running up
and down and left and right. Not quite
music to my ears, but at last, I did fall
asleep. If all of this mouse talk sounds
terrifying, you always have the option
of packing and setting up a tent.
Next morning, we hiked up to the
top of Silers Bald. It was the most
beautiful and breathe taking view (the
air is thin at 5,200 ft.) I have ever seen
on the AT. I really just wanted to stay
there for a while, but I knew that we
had a long day ahead. In order to get
to the next shelter, we would have to
crank out 12 miles. Our next big stop
was about 7 miles later at Wayah Bald.
This is where I shot an educational
video, teaching future hikers how to
make the popular and delicious dish,
"Hiker's Delight" (two packs of Ramen
noodles). You can see a portion of this


video (along with a few others) on my
Facebook page, facebook.com/bbuff-
ington.
To make the day more interesting,
we misplaced one of our hikers after
lunch. Because he liked to hike at a
more casual pace, he often wanted to
hike ahead of the group (until we
would catch up). To make a long story
a little shorter: he got off the trail, we
somehow passed him and two of us
had to backtrack to find him. Yours
truly was given the most important job
of watching everyone's gear, while the
search committee did their searching. I
was relieved to know he was ok.
We arrived at Cold Springs Shelter
right before sundown. This time, other
hikers were there to great us. They
were a couple of retired teachers from
Colorado Springs, who had spent the
previous five-plus months hiking at
the AT. The man told us that before
fall, they were hiking 20 mile days! He
also said it took about one month to
get their "trail legs" conditioned for
that kind of distance. After hearing his
testimony, I was ready to drop the rest
of the guys off at the van and keep go-
ing.
Because of our 12 mile long haul,
one of our guys got a few blisters on
his feet. And when you have 50
pounds strapped to your back, a few
small blisters are a BIG deal. These
blisters and our quicker-than-planned
pace had us coming home a day early.
And that was OK. Our three-
day/two-night adventure gave us
plenty to talk and reminisce about on
the way home. Each time I'm able to
venture out and hike the AT, I always
learn something new. Sometimes I
learn about people, sometimes it's
about what gear worked or didn't.
This time I learned that "Father Moun-
tain", "Bear Slayer", and "Tortuga"
were much more than fellow hikers,
but my brothers in Christ. (It's an AT
tradition to give hikers' trail names).
We share the same physical and spiri-
tual needs and have lots to learn from
each other. And when one is down (ei-
ther emotionally or on the ground),
there is always an outreached hand or
open ear.
You see, "Tortuga" was forced to
drop his pack a mile before reaching
our final shelter, Cold Springs Shelter.
It was getting dark and his feet were
bad off. Without hesitation, "Bear Slay-
er" dropped what he was doing,
strapped a head lamp on, and went to
find and pick up the injured hiker's
pack in the dark. These are the kinds of
hiking stories that I like to share. In-
spirational ones.
Lots more happened on the trip, but
I feel like I've rambled enough. It's my
hope to make these semi-annual hikes
an outreach event for our county.
Whether or not you attend another
church or don't attend church at all,
you are welcome to join us on our
summer hike in June 2010. Simply stop
by the church office, or contact me
through e-mail or Facebook.
