Coming


out of


the cold
Hamilton suffered
considerable crop loss
during last month's
cold spell, but it could
have been worse
By Stephenie
Livingston
stephenie.livingston
@gaflnews.com
A weary eyed farmer
stood in the rain last
Friday as he looked
out over a field of
soggy, long dead
vegetables. "I can't
remember one this
bad," he said.
Last month's two
week long freeze, with
temperatures often
falling into the teens,
took its toll on local
crops. In fact,
Hamilton County was
included in 60 Florida
counties designated as
primary natural
disaster areas by The
U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
The cold snap was
the longest since the
late 80s when freezing
temperatures lasted
for two weeks. In
January 1985, another
severe freeze in
northern and central
Florida resulted in
about $1.2 billion in
damage to the citrus
industry, according to
the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric
Administration's
National
Environmental,
Satellite, Data, and
Information Service.
During that cold spell,
temperatures reached
a low of 6 degrees.
In Hamilton County,
it could have been
much worse.
"We were lucky
because we didn't
have many crops in
the ground," said
Hamilton County
Agriculture Extension
Agent Allen Tyree.

Hamilton schools in the running




for S1M in federal education funds


Continued From Page 1A

The teachers union was
asked by school board to
entertain the idea and sign a
letter of intent. Still, union
president David Law said
there are some concern.
"The program may result in
additional testing, extended
work day and school year,
changing the evaluation
system, altering the current
contract procedures, and
possible dictating staffing
and transfer procedures,
among other things," said
Law.
Furthermore, Law said the
possibility of the district


picking up additional costs
not covered during the grant
and all costs after the grant
expires makes him
uncomfortable. He is also
weary of collaborative
negotiations with the school
board due to recent
bargaining history.
Superintendent Martha
Butler was more optimistic.
"I think it is going to be a
lot of work, but its definitely
attainable," said Butler.
"We're doing a lot of what
Race To The Top involves
already."
School board will work
with the teachers union to
work out details as the


process moves along.
"This is something that will
be developed in stages," she
said.
The district alone will
decide how to implement
objectives set forth by the
Race to the Top program,
which aims to strengthen
student foundational skills,
improve student college
readiness, expand
opportunities for post-
secondary degrees and
certificates, create teacher and
leader preparation programs,
certification and professional
development programs for
aspiring teachers and
principals, and so forth.


Butler went on to address
the issue of what will happen
once the grant runs out.
"Hopefully the economy will
have improved by then and
we can continue on our own,"
she said.
Butler said this is just the
first step in a process. If the
school board ultimately
decides to participate, the
union and the district will
have 90 days following the
awarding of the grant to
finalize contract language.
"I have reservations," said
Law. "But I'm confident that
both sides can work toward
building some sort of
consensus."

"This is something

Lewis.
Several activities are

As for those crops
already in the ground
- greens, planted rye,
and carrots -
Don Burnam with the
USDA in Hamilton
County said those were
hit hard.
"As far as numbers
affected, it was not that
bad," said Don Burnam
with the USDA in
Hamilton County.
However, Burnam said
for those who were
affected, the impact on
this year's revenue will
be significant.
"This was the worst
we've ever had," said
Gerald Coggins of
Coggins Farms in
Hamilton County.
Coggins said about 50
percent of their carrots,
nearly 500 acres, were
destroyed. This loss
will greatly impact the
farm's revenue for the
year, he said.
Overall, nearly 1,000
acres of carrots were
destroyed in Hamilton
County, said Burnam.
Nearly 35 percent of
oats and rye planted in
the county were also
destroyed as well as
significant damage to
greens. However,
greens suffered less
since the majority had
already been picked,
said Burnam. Also,
with much of the
winter grazing crops
destroyed, production
on many local farms
will be slowed.
"Had it been after
spring planting, the
damage would have
been much more
significant," said
Burnam. "Events like
this are a part of
farming," said Burnam.
"When you deal with
nature, you are
gambling to a certain
degree."
Hamilton County
farmers are may
qualify for low interest
emergency loans from
USDA's Farm Service
Agency. FSA also has a
variety of programs to
help eligible farmers
recover from there
losses.

2010 has really gotten
off to a busy start. We
have had a series of golf
cart thefts a burglary
and several drug arrests
since January. You
have also probably no-
ticed a lot of traffic on
Saturday the past few
weeks. This was due to
the bicycle race and as-
sorted "swap meets"
along with our farmer's
market. While the traf-
fic can be a little taxing
the business that it
brings to our town is
fantastic.
To deal with the above
listed problems I have
reorganized our part
time police personnel in
order to provide more
patrol coverage. I have
also used some of the
grant money we ob-
tained for this year in or-
der to increase the num-
ber of hours that they
can work. This is also a
good time to remind you

The Hamilton County Titans, a com-
bination of children from Jasper and
Jennings, had the proud honor of be-
ing undefeated throughout the 2009
football season. This was in spite of the
fact that they played against some of
the best teams in the area, including
Suwannee County and Madison
County.
The high point of the season was
when the boys were invited to play at
the Regional Championship in Lake
City. Here the team went head to head
with teams from Live Oak, Fort White,
Lake City, and other surrounding
towns. Before and after each game, the
coaches and the team alike prayed for
God's glory upon their efforts. They
were well rewarded, winning the final
round of the championship with a
score of 28 to 12, to become the Re-
gional Champions.
The players, who worked diligently
at practice and played hard during


games, were presented with a lovely
banquet of chicken, corn on the cob
and other vegetables, as well as cake.
Trophies and t-shirts were dispersed
to the players. All who attended con-
tributed to the joyful and celebratory
feeling of the night. Shan Perry of
Mayo, a former baseball player, came
to speak to the up and coming players
about his life and the importance of al-
lowing God to lead your actions.
The Hamilton County Titans would
like to thank their sponsors, S&S Food
Stores. In addition, they would also
like to thank: Mr. John Ryan of Ryan's
Landscaping and Developers, Martha
Butler, School Superintendent, Doug
Lang of Jennings Outdoor Resort,
David Hogan of Hogan Entertain-
ment, Louie Edinfield, Keith Hunter of
112 Hatley, Mr. And Mrs. John Peach,
Jennings Mini Mart, Trystan Snipes,
Vanny and Magda Avalous, Stephanie
Marcano, Ben and Leann Norris, Shan
Perry of Mayo, and everyone else who
assisted the team in their efforts.

Heart Matters


By Angie Land

A part of our heritage in Florida is the
hunting of arrowheads, and one thing that
even novice arrowhead hunters have in com-
mon is the recognition of intentional, intelli-
gent design. In fact, no one would ever pick
up an arrowhead and assume that the forces
of nature accidentally shaped a rock into a
purposeful design. It would be obvious that
an Indian ancestor intentionally shaped and
formed the arrowhead for a specific function,
and even though we were not present for it's
creation, we would recognize that it was cre-
ated. Yet, those who proclaim Darwin's the-
ory of evolution do no less than see the evi-
dence of intelligent design around us and
conclude that it just "evolved" from nothing.
In his book The Origin of Species written in
1859, Darwin himself admitted that the fossil
record of his time gave insignificant proof to
support his theory, and hoped that future
findings would increase the evidence. Near-
ly 150 years later, the fossil record has over-
whelmingly increased and yet there is still no
evidence of evolution from species to
species. If Darwin's theory were true,
where is this vast body of evidence that
should exist? Darwin also stated, "If it
could be demonstrated that any complex or-
gan exists which could not have been formed
by numerous, successive, slight modifica-
tions, then my theory would absolutely
break down." In the past 50 years, the field
of molecular biology has exploded with in-
formation about the complexity of DNA and
living cells...information that Darwin did
not have. It has been proven that a cell is
irreduciblyy complex". In other words,
every component is necessary for the cell to
function normally, and that it could not pos-
sibly be the result of a series of successive,
slight modifications. Any modification
would render the cell insufficient...absolute-
ly breaking down Darwin's theory, by his
own criteria.
To say that the account of creation in Gen-


esis is not supported by fact is simply no
true. The evidence of intelligent design is a
around us; the rising and setting of the sui
the phases of the moon and the seasons (
the year. How indeed did these precisely
organized rotations just happen? Accorc
ing to Psalm 19:1,
"The heavens declare the glory of God, th
skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; nigh
after night they display knowledge."
It is obvious that a Creator placed the star
in the sky, as well as designed the huma

takes much more faith to believe that this i
all the result of years of random modificc
tions than the intelligent design of a Creato
When there is an attempt to explain creation
without the need for a Creator, is not the me
tive to diminish faith in the Creator? Is
not also an effort to diminish the value of hu
man life...by teaching that it is a random n
sult? Our country deceives our young people
when Darwin's theory is presented as fac
and they are asked to deny what is obvious,
As Americans, our heritage is a country es
tablished on our faith in God, and the free
dom to worship Him. In fact, our foundin
fathers used the Bible as a reading textboo
to educate their children...this means tha
the earliest generation of American's fir
reading assignment was Genesis 1:1 "In th
beginning, God created the heavens and th
earth..." Nothing like settling first thing
first...how well we would do to remember!

Christian people, who claim to
go by the teachings of the Bible
claiming, "Everything is relative;
nothing is black, or white." The
word "abomination" is seldom
heard in our modern world of
relativism where everything is
considered relative.
But the Bible tells us that there
are practices that are definitely
wrong and the choice is not left
up to you; God has already
ruled on it in His Word you
just need to listen: God's
Word tells us that women are
)t not to dress to look like men
11 and men are not to dress to
n, look like women. "The
Df woman shall not wear that
y which pertains unto a man,
1- neither shall a man put on a
woman's garment: for all
e that do so are abomination
unto the Lord thy God,"
it (Deuteronomy 22:5). A
woman doesn't have to wear
rs a skirt all the time but God
n said it is wrong for her to
It dress to purposely look like a
is man and it is wrong for a
a- man to be a cross dresser! No
r. "relativity" here.
n Human sacrifice is forbid-
- den! "There shall not be
it found among you any one
J- that maketh his son or his
e- daughter to pass through the
e fire..." (Deuteronomy 18:10).
ct In other words you are not to
s. use your children as human
s- sacrifices to God or any other
e- god. God says, "Don't do it!"
g God's Word says it is an
k abomination to use tarot
at cards, the Ouija board, seek
st advice from spiritualist,
e witches, etc. "...or that useth
e divination, or an observer of
;s times, or an enchanter, or a
witch, or a charmer, or a con-
sulter with familiar spirits, or
a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things
are an abomination unto the
'y Lord:" (Deuteronomy 18:10-
1- 12). God did not leave any
re room for relativism. He did-
z- n't leave you guessing!
to THERE IS A RIGHT AND A
g- WRONG!
at "And the man that commit-
teth adultery with another


man's wife, even he that commit-
teth adultery with his neighbor's
wife, the adulterer and the adul-
teress shall surely be put to
death," (Leviticus 20:10). "Adul-
tery," a sin that you laugh at
when it is so freely talked about
on the sitcoms and yet God's
Word said it was worthy of
death. Why? Because the rela-
tionship of a man and his wife is
a picture of the relationship of
Christ and the church "Hus-
bands, love your wives, even as
Christ also loved the church, and
gave himself for it; that he might
sanctify and cleanse it with the
washing of water by the
word...For this cause shall a man
leave his father and mother, and
shall be joined unto his wife, and
they two shall be one flesh. This
is a great mystery; but I speak
concerning Christ and the
church," (Ephesians 5:25, 26, 31,
32). Jesus took it a step further
saying, "Ye have heard that it
was said by them of old time,
Thou shalt not commit adultery:
But I say unto you, That whoso-
ever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adul-
tery with her already in his
heart," (Matthew 5:27, 28).
And we can see from the Bible
that the practices of gays and les-
bians is no relative matter either.
"Thou shalt not lie with
mankind, as with womankind; it
is an abomination," (Leviticus
18:22). God's Word condemns
these practices and so many
more. But so many say you can't
tell others they can't do such-
and-such because he/she must
make his/her own choice. Yes,
but you, as a Christian and a stu-
dent of the Word of God have an
obligation to set forth the
TRUTH. Jesus said, "Sanctify
them through thy truth: THY
WORD IS TRUTH," (John 17:17).
Everyone reading this message
knows people involved in sin.
Don't be afraid to confront your
loved ones when the opportunity
arises because it is wrong but
you must do it in LOVE. Check
you motive for confronting them.

School Breakfast Program lets Hamilton County School

District students make a healthy start to their day


National School Breakfast
Week is March 8-12, 2010
Submitted
Everyone can agree on the importance of breakfast
to student achievement, yet too many children miss
out on the most critical meal of the day. Numerous
studies have shown that breakfast can improve a
student's memory, test scores, school attendance
and cut down on visits to the school nurse. Research
has also shown that children who eat breakfast each
day have a higher intake of vitamins and minerals
and maintain a healthier weight than those who
skip.
Fortunately, every school day, the National School

NFCC Board member RB
Davis reminds Hamilton
County residents to apply
early for college, scholarships
and financial aid


Breakfast Program fuels more than 10.6 million stu-
dents for success. The program is both critical to
maintaining the health and well-being of children
who are eligible for free or reduced price meals, and
it provides a great alternative for children who don't
want to eat breakfast at home.
The morning routine for many families can be so
hectic, and some children just aren't hungry before
they leave for school." said Ida Daniels, Food and
Nutrition Services Coordinator. "Knowing that your
child can eat a healthy breakfast once they get to
school can be a huge relief for parents."
School breakfast provides the necessary energy to
start a day of learning and achievement, providing
25 percent of the recommended daily allowance of
protein, calcium, iron, vitamins A and C and calories
and meeting the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The National School Breakfast Program was estab-
lished in 1966. Since 1989, National School Breakfast
Week has been raising awareness of the program
and the links between eating a good breakfast, acad-
emic achievement and healthy lifestyles.
Hamilton County School District is hosting
"School Breakfast-Ready, Set, Go!" a campaign to in-


troduce students to the importance of school break-
fast and demonstrate how eating a school breakfast
prepares you for a busy day at school. The cam-
paign, created by non-profit School Nutrition Asso-
ciation with support from General Mills Foodser-
vice, culminates during National School Breakfast
Week, March 8 to 12, 2010.
The breakfast menu for the week features Mighty
Muffin Squares on Monday, Souped-up Cereal on
Tuesday, Fuel Up with French Toast of Wednesday,
Breakfast Burrito Boost on Thursday, and on Friday
we will Get Up and Go with Granola and Yogurt.
Breakfast begins at 7:15 a.m. 7:45 a.m. for Ele-
mentary, 8:00 a.m. 9:30 a.m. Greenwood School,
and 7:25 a.m. 7:55 a.m. at Hamilton County High.
The breakfast price for visitors for all schools is
$2.00.
Please contact the school's manager if you plan to
attend:
CHE & Greenwood School-Phyllis Simmons, Mgr:
792-6537

North Florida Commu-
nity College Board of
Trustee member RB
Davis of Jasper encour-
ages all Hamilton Coun-
ty residents interested in
attending NFCC this fall
to apply early for schol-
arships and financial aid
opportunities.
"Starting the college
application process early
is important, especially
when you are seeking fi-
nancial assistance
through scholarships or
student loans," said
Davis.
And the NFCC Finan-
cial Aid Department
agrees "The financial
aid process does take
time, so we encourage
you to start as soon as
possible. Although
awards are made
throughout the year,
funds are limited and
students who apply ear-
ly usually receive higher
awards." Students can
apply for fall term 2010
tuition assistance as
soon as their 2009 tax re-
turns are completed.
"From its new Minori-
ty Leadership Academy
and Tuition Payment
Plan to organizational
scholarships and federal
financial aid opportuni-
ties, NFCC has many op-
portunities that help
prospective students at-
tend college," said
Davis.
From 2008-2009 NFCC
awarded $223,123 in tu-
ition assistance and fi-
nancial aid to Hamilton
County residents. Those
looking to begin classes
this summer or fall need
to apply for scholarships
and financial aid as soon
as possible.
Each fall NFCC's Mi-
nority Leadership Acad-
emy accepts 15 new stu-
dents into its program.
The application deadline
for fall 2010 is July 31.
Those selected for the
program, which focuses
on academic achieve-
ment, civic engagement
and personal enrich-
ment, receive full tu-
ition, two-year academic
scholarships to NFCC
and are required to meet
program requirements.
The deadline to apply
for fall term 2010 schol-
arships through the
NFCC Foundation is
Aug. 1. Available schol-
arships include activity
and assistantship schol-
arships, individual and
organizational scholar-
ships and a variety of
scholarships through
area civic clubs and
churches. A full list is
available at
http://www.nfcc.edu / f
oundationgiving or by
contacting the NFCC
Foundation at (850) 973-
9423 or

But remember it's im-
portant to start the appli-
cation process early and
now is the perfect time
to contact NFCC and get
more information. Con-
tact the NFCC Financial
Aid office at (850) 973-
1621, email Finan-
cialAid@nfcc.edu or visit

VA Medical Center invites community to "Salute to Veteran Patients" Week


Submitted by Cindy Gaylord, Public
Affairs Specialist, Department of
Veterans Affairs

The Lake City VA Medical
Center invites the public to par-
ticipate in open-house activities
February 8-14 during the Nation-
al Salute to Veteran Patients
week.
"The National Salute to Veter-
an Patients week gives everyone
a chance to let those who have
given the nation so much know
that they are not forgotten," said
VA Medical Center Acting Asso-
ciate Director Maureen Wilkes.
"We've invited local celebrities,
school groups and other organi-
zations to visit during the week.
We want people of all ages to


send Valentine's Day cheer to
our patients."
Wilkes said she hopes visitors
will also learn more about the
important roles volunteers play
at the medical center throughout
the year and perhaps pursue vol-
unteer opportunities.
"Our medical center's over 600
volunteers are an important part
of our health care team and the
National Salute program is a
great way for people to learn
more about helping the veterans
we serve here at the medical cen-
ter," Wilkes said. "Visitors are
surprised at how varied our vol-
unteer opportunities are."
Citizens, young and old, are
once again sending Valentine's
Day cards and letters to VA


medical centers simply ad-
dressed "Dear Veteran." Wilkes
said they are being distributed to
patients throughout the medical
center.
The Lake City VA Medical
Center National Salute Week
schedule includes: Visits from
numerous community and ser-
vice organizations, distributions
of flowers and Valentine cards to
patients, and a special visit by
Albert, the University of Florida
Mascot. Additional activities
will occur in the outpatient clinic
throughout the week.
Individuals or groups wishing
to participate in the medical cen-
ter program should call the Vol-
untary Service office at 386-755-
3016, ext. 2135

Did You Know?


Each February, schools, banks and
even many offices close for a holiday
that technically doesn't exist. Though
the third Monday of every February
is widely known as President's Day,
the official name of the holiday is
Washington's Birthday, so named af-
ter the first president of the United
States, George Washington, whose
birthday fell on February 22nd.


While Washington's accomplish-
ments were certainly worth noting,
many states began referring to the
holiday as President's Day to honor
another illustrious president with a
February birthday, Abraham Lincoln.
Because states are allowed to follow
their own holidays, many chose to
honor Lincoln over Washington.
However, some states still celebrate


the day as "Washington's Birthday".
Such is the case in Massachusetts,
though Massachusetts state law still
prescribes that the governor issue an
annual President's Day proclamation
honoring all Massachusetts-born pres-
idents, including John Adams, John
Quincy Adams, Calvin Coolidge, and
John F. Kennedy.
Similarly, in Virginia, where George


Washington was born, the holiday is
legally known as "George Washing-
ton Day".
In 1968, Congress considered legal-
ly changing the holiday's name to
Presidents Day. While those efforts
stalled, Congress did decide to move
the holiday to fall between both
Washington's and Lincoln's birth-
days.
