35 percent.


More than 280 people
completed 420 motor vehicle

and 60 driver's license issued or

"We want to thank the

standing in line for their

were very happy that we were
able to help save them some
money and we were happy to


serve them."
According to Adams, a
normal driver's license
renewal day would consist of
15 such transactions. Today's
count of 60 transactions
quadrupled that.

FWC urges caution
for Labor Day boaters
Labor Day traditionally marks the end of the
summer boating season, and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) urges
boaters to use extra caution over the holiday.
"We should mark the end of the summer on a high
note," Capt. Richard Moore of the FWC's Boating and
Waterways Section said. "We're urging boaters to
operate their vessels with caution, slow down a little,
have all the necessary safety equipment, and wear life
jackets. If you drink alcohol, use a non-drinking
designated driver, and, most importantly, pay close
attention to what's going on around you."
Florida has 1 million registered vessels, and accident
statistics are sobering.
Florida recorded 54 boating fatalities in 2008, with
more than 70 percent of the victims drowning. _

S' Fst has been said
that "WVe will
e not be reniem-
S bered b\ our words,
but by our good
deeds." Barbara
e t Beauchamnp will long
- be remembered by the
- Citizens of Florida for
her professional and personal dedication to the
Stephen Foster Park and to the Florida Folk Festival.
In honor of her memory and in recognition of her
legacy of service to the people of White Springs,
Hamilton County and Florida, the Stephen Foster
Citizen Support Organization would like to invite
the public to a dedication ceremony for the Barbara
Beauchamp Memorial Fountain, The ceremony will
take place at the fountain, next to the museum in the
Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center in White
Springs on Sunday, September 13th, at 3:00pm.
Everyone is invited to attend. During the ceremony
the memory of Barbara Beauchamp will be honored
and 'anyone who has something they would like to
say should plan on speaking, or they can send some-
thing to be read during the ceremony to Barbara's
daughter, Bebe Willis at 12994 94th Terrace, Live
Oak,. FL 32060, or email to
bebe_newsome@yahoo.com by Sept 10th. There will.
be refreshments served after the ceremony.
. I just got a note from Larry Hoover at the park that
it's coffee house time again. The Coffee House is one
of my favorite park events, with open mike, great en-
tertainment and delicious desserts. It takes place


Chief's

Report

From Chief Ken Brookins,
White Springs Police
Department
As I write this report
the budget writing
process is pretty much
coming to an end. I have
to say that this has been
quite an experience for
me. If you do a personal
budget you have a feel
for what we went
through. except for the
fact you are only respon-


sible for your own mon-
ey and not someone
else's. Trust me when I
tell you it makes for some
sleepless nights. It's re-
ally tough to make deci-
sions on things like rais-
ing taxes or cutting ser-
vices. Overall, your Po-
lice Department did pret-'
ty good considering what
we had to work with.
We were able to do some
readjusting and over-
come most of the cuts we
took by shifting sched-
ules and AdOirg more of
our training at'a local lev-
el.


this Saturda.y.evening, September 5th, from 7 to 9 pm
in the Stephen Foster Auditorium and admission to
the park and the coffee house is free. Larry tells me
that a new stage wilt be ih place for this event and
wishes to say,' "Thank you Stephen Foster CSO and a
thank you as well to all those who donate desserts."
The host tlus Saturday will be local singing and song
writing talent Gary Noland. Gary has hosted before
and has performed at Coffee House many' times and
always puts on a great show.
Merri and I recently had a nice visit with Mitchell
McDaniel and his son Levi while they paused from
removing part of a large oak limb that had fallen at
the Sophie Jane Adams Bed and Breakfast. Mitchell
and Levi are experts at this kind of tree trimming
and removal and do really good work. Mitchell is a
granddad now as Levi is now the proud father of a
brand new healthy baby boy named "Bo". Congrat-
ulations to the McDaniel family and we wish
Mitchell a speedy and complete recovery from his re-
cent eye surgery.
It seems that everywhere I go I meet former Hamil-
ton County residents who have gone on to make a
successful life in other places. Recently Merri and I,
joined by Dennis and Dottie Price visited former
White Springs residents Ron and Barb Ceryak at
their beautiful new home in Flagler Beach. While
there I was introduced to their dinner guests, Ken
Malpas and Bill Campenella, both formerly of
Hamilton County; who operated a nursery on State
Road 6 near Jasper for many years starting in the
1970's. Ken and Bill were friends of Merri's from
back in the day when she first came to White Springs


We did take one hit
that we could not over-
come. Effective October
1st there will no longer
be a crossing guard at the
school zone. This was
an extremely tough de-
cision to make but the
funds were just not there.
Ms. Roberts took the
job as crossing guard at
the same time I took the
job as Chief. I have to
say that. she is one of the
finest women I have ever
met. She did us a won-
derful job and I can hon-
estly say that I am going
to miss her very much.


Over the past month
we had one burglary and
two attempts. Tom's Bar
on Mill Street was bur-
glarized and the glass

as the "Artist in Residence" at the Stephen Foster
Park. Mlerri was surprised and happy to hear that
they still had some of her art work. We all had a live-
ly and interesting dinner conversation that covered a
wide spectrum of topics and I heard many Hamilton
County stories from before m\' time. Since leaving
Hamilton County, Ken and Bill have been very suc-
cessfully involved in the nursery business in the Fla-
gler Beach area and I was ajso very pleased to hear
that they still read the Jasper News and this column
every week. Just goes to show what smart and in-
formed folks they must be!
Anyone who has their mail delivered to their
home is missing out on a truly wonderful experi-
ence. You see, one of the things that specially love
about living in White Springs is the sense of commu-
nity that most of us experience so often when we go
to the Post Office. T. D. Jenkins and his crew always
make me feel welcome. Friends and neighbors offer
greetings and good conversation and' most folks
share a nod and a smile as they hurry in and out
dropping off and picking up their mail. Often I see
Doris Redic there, and she always makes my day
brighter with her smile and her wonderful outlook
on life. Doris knows everyone, and I do mean every-
one, in' town and she helps so many people in so
many ways. I have never heard her say anything bad
about anybody and I do believe she is one of those
rare folk who really does love her neighbors, all of
us! Thank you Doris for making White Springs a
better place to live.
SI think I've said enough for this week. Look in
next week's column for more news, including the
Woman's Day program that will take place at Beulah
Baptist Church later this month. If you have any
news of past, present or future happenings in the
area, send them to me and they jusi may end up be-
ing part of "Life in White Springs"!

OPINION


Washington's lies


President Obama and congressional
supporters estimate that his'health
care plan will cost between $50 and
$65 billion a year. Such cost estimates
are lies whether they come from a De-
mocratic president and Congress, or a
Republican president and Congress.
You say, "Williams, you don't show
much trust in the White House and
Congress." Let's check out their past
dishonesty.
At its start, in 1966, Medicare cost
$3 billion. The House Ways and
Means Committee, along with Presi-
dent Johnson, estimated that
Medicare would cost an inflation-ad-
justed $12 billion by 1990. In 1990,
Medicare topped $107 billion. That's
nine times Congress' prediction. To-
day's Medicare tab comes to $420 bil-
lion with no signs of leveling- off.
How much confidence can we have in
any cost estimates by the White
House or Congress?


Another part of
the Medicare lie
is found in Sec-
tion 1801 of the
1965 Medicare
Act that reads:
"Nothing in this
title shall be con-
strued to autho-
rize any federal


officer or e
ployee to
control ov
or the mar
vices are p
tion, tenure
officer, or
tion, agent
health car
or hospital
Lies and
restricted
the legisla
tion of the


em-
exercise any supervision or
er the practice of medicine,
ner in which medical ser-
provided, or over the selec-
re, or compensation of any
employee, or any institu-
cy or person providing
e services." Ask your doctor
1 whether this is true.
i deception are by no means
to modem times. During
tive debate prior to ratifica-
16th Amendment, Presi-
dent Howard Taft and
congressional support-
ers said that only the

paid 7 percent.
The lie that only
the rich would
ever pay income
taxes was simply
a lie to exploit the
politics of envy
and dupe Ameri-.
cans into ratifying
the 16th Amend-
ment.


The proposed tax increases that the
White House and Congress are
proposing will probably pass. Accord-
ing to the Washington, D.C.-based
Tax Foundation, during 2006, roughly
43.4 million tax returns, representing
91 million individuals, had no federal
tax liability. That's out of a total of 136
million federal tax returns. Adding to
this figure are 15 million households
and individuals who file no tax return
at all. Roughly 121 million Americans
-- or 41 percent of the U.S. population
-- are completely outside the federal
income tax system. These people rep-
resent a natural constituency for big-
spending politicians. Since they have
no federal income tax obligation,
what do they care about higher taxes
or tax cuts?
Another big congressional lie is So-
cial Security. Here's what a 1936 gov-
ernment pamphlet on Social Security
said: "After the first 3 years -- that is
to say, beginning in 1940 -- you will
pay, and your employer will pay, 1.5

you know, and yes I have
celebrated also since I last
wrote. I seems like the BIG
ONE for me was just yester-
day. Yes, I am now register-
ing a year older than Doris
and Joe Mitchell and Jack Vinson.
Last week's issue of the Jasper News
reminded us that it is time to send
packages to the troops and items were
listed that are especially wanted. Pack-
ages will be packed at the VFW build-
ing on September 10th and items can
be dropped off at the library or the
VFW on September 10th. I received
one of those calls suggesting that a do-
nation be made to VFW through them
for the boxes. When I told him we took
care of this locally he said, "lady, this
is local " But, I knew better and imme-
diately called Cecil. I wrote down the
number but misplaced it; however, it
did not have anything to do with
Hamilton County. As Cecil Davis said,
do not respond to any such solicita-
tion.
As I had to purchase a new tag in
August since it was my birthday
month, I went to purchase it and was
informed by Mary Sue Adams, our tax
collector, that the price would be go-
ing up and if I wanted to I could buy
for two years, which interested me
and I took advantage of it.
Surely some of you will be taking a
"last fling" over the Labor Day week-
end, tell us about it. And, have a safe
one.
Let's have a safe school year, DRIVE
CAREFULLY.

cents for each dollar you earn, up to
$3,000 a year ... beginning in 1943,
you will pay 2 cents, and so will your
employer, for every dollar you earn
for the next 3 yeais. ... And finally, be-
ginning in 1949, twelve years from
now, you and your employer will
each pay 3 cents on each dollar you
earn, up to $3,000 a year." Here's Con-
gress's lying promise: "That is the
most you will ever pay." Let's repeat
that last sentence: "That is the most
you will ever pay." Compare that to
today's reality, including Medicare,
which is 7.65 cents on each dollar that
you earn up to nearly $107,000, which
comes to $8,185.
The Social Security pamphlet closes
with another lie: "Beginning Novem-
ber 24, 1936, the United States govern-
ment will set up a Social Security ac-
count for you ... The checks will come
to you as a right." First, there's no So-
cial Security account containing your
money, but more importantly, the
U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on two
occasions that Americans have no le-
gal right to Social Security payments.
We can thank public education for
American gullibility.

Yes, the wheels on the bus go
"round and round" is the sound we
hear in the mornings now. Didn't
school just get out, or is it just that time
seems to be flying by for me, how
about you?.Did you have a good sum-
mer? If so, tell us about it.
Trey is at Middle School on High
School campus and Kaleigh and Leigh
Ann are at South where Leigh Ann re-
ally started her career in Hamilton
County. Seems like just yesterday!
All seems to be going well with
schools as far as I know, but don't
know as much about it as in past
ears. However, I have been connect-
ed in some way for the last 44 years
(wow); yes, Ben just celebrated a big
birthday. And of course I did too.
If I let myself, I would get very sen-
timental about the past years, so many
changes. The class that just celebrated
50 years out of school graduated in the
spring before we moved here in Au-
gust 1959. The high school was where
the Bank of America is now, and the
high school that was built when Ben
started to school is now referred to as
the Courthouse Annex; referred often
to as the "old high school". Don't get
me started; I think I could write a
bookI Mr. Blalock would say, when he
was superintendent that he thought he
and I had been around longer than
anybody. Of course, we know better
and I still have ties to the system.
Ben celebrated a big birthday this
week. I will not say which one; most of

$1,000 for MDA last year. Thousands of
fire fighters nationwide have been con-
tributing to MDA in various capacities
since 1954. Funds raised by the fire fight-
ers give- MDA, a voluntary health
agency, the means to continue providing
direct services, research and professional
and public health education to children
and adults with neuromuscular diseases
in Northeast Florida and Southeast Geor-
gia.


MDA medical services are available in
Jacksonville at Nemours Children's Clin-
ic and Mayo Clinic for those who are di-
agnosed with any of the 43 neuromusciu-
lar diseases covered by MDA. The annu-
al MDA summer camp is also funded by
, the fire fighters' donations. This year's
camp took place at Epworth by the Sea in
St. Simons Island, GA. The fun-filled
summer camp hosted individuals, ages 6
to 17, with muscular dystrophy.

Crenshaw Invites Vietnam War-Era
Veterans to Participate in Special
Recognition Ceremony


(Washington, DC)
Fourth-Congressional
District Vietnam-era vet-
erans will receive certifi-
cates of Special Recogni-
tion from Congressman
Ander Crenshaw in a
ceremony slated for No-
vember 10 at Naval Air
Station Jacksonville. The
application deadline to
receive the honor is Oc-
tober 13.
"Vietnam veterans
served our country with
distinction during one
of our most tumultuous
times as a nation," said
Crenshaw. "They an-
swered the call of duty,
but when they returned
home many did not re-
ceive the recognition
they properly deserved.
These brave individuals
helped fight for freedom
and democracy at a time
when their country
needed them, and this
ceremony will help
show our appreciation."
In the past two years,
Crenshaw has recog-
nized nearly 500 Viet-
nam veterans eligible
for either the Vietnam
Service Medal or the
Vietnam Campaign
Medal. This year's cer-
emony will recognize
the contributions of all
who served in the U.S.
Armed Forces, includ-
ing the Coast Guard and
the Merchant Marines,
during the dates of the
Vietnam War, March 1,
1961 April 1975.


Armed Forces members
who qualified for the
Armed Forces Expedi-
tionary Medal by ser-
vice in Vietnam between
July 1, 1958 and July 3,
1965 will also be recog-
nized. Foreign Service
Officers with the U.S.
Diplomatic Corps mem-
bers serving in South-
east Asia during the pe-
riods above are also eli-
gible for special recogni-
tion.
If you are a Vietnam
War-era veteran, live in
the 4th Congressional
District, and would like
to participate, please
contact Congressman
Crenshaw's district of-
fices in Jacksonville
(904-598-0481) or Lake
City (386-365-3316) or
call toll free 888.755-
5607 if you live in the
850 area code. You may

Spouses can apply online, too


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville, FL

You probably already know that
when it comes time to apply for re-
tirement, you can do it online at
www.socialsecurity.gov/applyonline.
But did you know that spouses can
apply online, too?
If you are a spouse applying for
benefits based on your husband's or
wife's record, you can do it online
from the convenience of your own
home.
If you are a spouse who has not
worked or who has worked for very
low wages, you could be entitled to a
benefit equal to as much as one-half
of your retired spouse's full benefit.
Even if you are divorced, you may be
eligible for benefits based on the em-
ployment record of your former
spouse.
To get benefits on your spouse's
record, you must be at least age 62 or
have a qualifying child in your care, a
child who is under age 16 or who re-
ceives Social Security disability bene-
fits.
The amount of your spousal benefit
depends on your age at retirement. If
you begin receiving benefits before
full retirement age, your benefits will

forcement


be permanently reduced in most cas-
es.
You also may be eligible for a retire-
ment benefit based on your own earn-
ings. If that benefit is higher than the
spousal benefit, Social Security would
pay you the higher benefit. We com-
pare which of the two benefits would
be more beneficial to you and discuss
the options you have.
If you have reached your full retire-
ment age and are eligible for a
spouse's benefit as well as your own
retirement benefit, you may choose to
receive the spouse's benefits only in
order to continue accruing delayed re-
tirement credits on your own Social
Security record. You may then file for
benefits at a later date and receive a
higher monthly benefit based on the
effect of delayed retirement credits.
Remember, if you're a spouse who
is taking care of a minor child (16 or
under) or a child who is disabled and
receives Social Security benefits on
your or your spouse's record, you can
receive a benefit, regardless of your
age.

tirement Benefits at www.socialsecu-

you to stop by there and pick up t-shirts and foot-
ball tickets.
There are new attendance procedures so please
be sure to read all about them when you get the in-
formation in the mail. Many of you have already
received them via email.
HCHS welcomes new students from New York,
Korea, Qutar, Texas and other places and it is good
to have them a part of is this year.
The Trojans will face Stiwannee Bulldogs here at
the school on Friday night. We continue to encour-
age you to wear red on Friday in support of our

AAA gives motorists 10 tips to keep kids safe as they return to school


It's back-to-school season across the
U.S. with 56 million students expected
to enroll in kindergarten through high
school classes at more than 98,000
schools this year. As many students re-
turn to school motorists need to use
extra caution with the increased con-
gestion on roadways.
"Nearly one-fifth of traffic fatalities
that involve children below the age of
15 are pedestrians, with more.school-
age pedestrians killed between the
hours of 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. than any
other time of day," said Leticia Mes-
sam, manager, traffic safety programs
at AAA Auto Club South.
As part of AAA's annual School's
Open-Drive Carefully campaign, AAA
offers 10 key tips for motorists to help
, keep kids safe as they return to school:
1. S16w Down. Two-thirds of mo-
torists exceeded the posted speed limit
during the 30-minute period before
and after school, according to a 2003
national observational survey.
Whether in a school zone or residential
neighborhood, motorists should keep
their speed low and be prepared to
stop quickly for increase4vehicle or


pedestrian traffic.
2. Obey Traffic Signs. Obeying traffic
signs is something all motorists should
do no matter where they drive. How-
ever, a national observational survey
found that many motorists violated
stop signs in school zones and residen-
tial neighborhoods. Forty-five percent
did not come to a complete stop with
37 percent rolling through and seven
percent not even slowing down.
3. Stay Alert. Motorists should al- .
ways avoid distractions while driving,
but it's particularly important in .'
school zones and residential neighbor-
hoods. Looking away from the road-
-way for just two seconds doubles the
chance of being involved in a crash.
Avoid talking on mobile phones, ad-
justing the radio or any other activities
that might take attention away from
the roadway. Never text while driving.
4. Scan Between Parked Cars. Near-
ly 40 percent of child pedestrian fatali-
ties occurred in between the hours of 4
p.m. and 8 p.m., mostly at non-inter-
section locations. Children can quickly
dart out between parked cars or other
objects along the roadway. Motorists


should pay close attention not only at
intersections, but along any residential
roadways where children could be
present.
5. Look for Clues of Children Near-
by. Keep an eye out for clues that chil-
dren are likely nearby such as AAA
School Safety Patrol members, crossing
guards, bicycles and playgrounds.
6. Always Stop for School Buses.
For 23 million students, the school day
begins and/or ends with a ride on a
school bus. The greatest risk they face
is not riding the bus, but approaching
or leaving it. Flashing yellow lights on
a school bus indicate it is preparing to
stop to load or unload children, and
motorists should slow down and pre-
pare to stop. Red flashing lights and
extended stop arms indicate the bus
has stopped, and children are getting
on or off. Motorists are required to
stop their vehicles and wait until the
red lights stop flashing, the extended
stop sign is withdrawn and the bus be-
gins moving before they can start dri-
ving again.
7. Allot Extra Travel Time. Back to
school often means increased conges-


tion and longer commute times. Mo-
torists should allot extra travel time
when school is in session to avoid any
temptation to. speed or disobey traffic
laws in an effort to "catch up" after be-
ing delayed.
8. Review Your Travel Route. Mo-
torists should consider modifying their
travel route to avoid school zones and.
residential neighborhoods. A slightly
longer route might actually be quicker
by'avoiding congestion and much low-
er speed limits in and around school
zones.
9. Use Extra Caution in Bad Weath-
er. Whether in rain, snow, fog or any
other inclement weather, motorists
should use extra caution. Reduced vis-
ibility can make it difficult for mo-
torists to see children and/or children
to see vehicles. It also can make it diffi-
cult to perform quick stops, if needed.
10. Use Headlights. Turn on the ve-
hicle's daytime running lights or head-
lights, even during the day, so children
and other drivers can see them more
easily. But, don't forget to turn them
off when you reach your destination to
maintain your battery life.

"Don't release exotic
pets!" That's the mes-
sage behind a colorful
new poster available
through a joint effort
between the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) and the Florida
Outdoor Writers Asso-
ciation (FOWA). The
20" x 36" poster, titled
"Some of Florida's Ex-
otic Freshwater Fishes,"
displays 17 species of
non-native fishes cur-
rently established in
Florida. These exotic
species were introduced
by man from foreign
countries, and with a
couple of exceptions,
are unwanted residents
in the Sunshine State.
There are 34 repro-
ducing exotic fishes es-
tablished in Florida, ac-
cording to the FWC's .
Division of Habitat and
Species Conservation.
The poster depicts the
most widespread or
commonly caught
species. Wildlife artist
Diane Rome Peebles
produced 15 of the il-
lustrations used in this
poster. The other two il-
lustrations were created
by well-known wildlife
artist Duane Raver.
University and federal
government researchers
familiar with each
species advised the
artists to help create at-
tractive, detailed and
accurate depictions.
The new "Exotic Fresh-
water Fishes" poster
was designed as a sis-
ter-publication to the
FWC's "Freshwater
Fishes" poster.
"The FWC actually
initiated this project
several years ago," said
FWC biologist Paul
Shafland, who along
with biologist John
Cimbaro created the
poster's design. "With-
out FOWA's generous
funding, it would not
have come to fruition at
this time. We are very
grateful for their contri-
bution."
FOWA provided
$2,500 for printing of
9,300 posters, which are
being made available to
the public at no cost.
The FWC hopes to con-
vey a simple message.
"It is illegal to release
any non-native fish or
any other non-native
organism in Florida,"
said Scott Hardin, the


FWC's exotic species
coordinator. "The only
way to really stop ex-
otics is to let people
know they should never
release them."
Moreover, some peo-
ple consider releasing
exotic pets inhumane
because most will die
shortly after being re-
leased. However, those
that survive could have
detrimental environ-
mental:effects.,
The-FWC has a three-
pronged approach to
exotic fishes: preven-
tion of illegal exotic fish
releases through educa-
tion, development of
specific regulations, and
law enforcement; as-
sessment of those exotic
fishes already present
in Florida to under-
stand what their effects
really are; and manage-
ment aimed at reducing
the abundance of these
unwanted residents.
One management ap-
proach is to encourage
people to fish for exotic
fishes they can eat.
-There are two excep-
tions: the butterfly pea-
cock bass, which was
purposefully released
by the FWC to eat other
exotic fishes, while in-
creasing recreational
angling opportunities in
metropolitan Southeast
Florida canals; and the
triploid grass carp,
which have been intro- *
duced to eat exotic veg-
etation.

Florida Farm Bureau establishes

Employ Florida Banner Center

for Agriscience


(Gainesville, FL) - Workforce Flori-
da, Inc. (WFI) has awarded a $300,000
grant to Florida Farm Bureau Federa-
tion (FFBF) to establish the Employ
Florida Banner Center for Agriscience,
which will evaluate and develop cur-
riculum that will be instrumental in
meeting the workforce needs of Flori-
da's agriculture industry.
The Banner Center, which will be
housed by the Florida Farm Bureau in
Gainesville, will ensure rigorous and
relevant curriculum and career devel-
opment events for high school stu-
dents. FFBF industry advisory com-
mittees, agriscience teachers, Univer-
sity of Florida teacher educators, the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and FFA staff will be a part of the cur-
riculum committees the Banner Cen-
ter will establish. The goal is to review
the curriculum frameworks on the
2010-2011 work plan and develop cur-
riculum, including electronic lesson


plans.
The success of the curriculum will
be measured by the number of stu-
dents receiving the corresponding in-
dustry certification. "Industry certifi-
cation is the ultimate goal," Cockrell
said. "We want employers in the agri-
science industry to have confidence in
the certification process, which should
assure that new employees have the
knowledge and skills to succeed." He
said Florida Farm Bureau will develop
certification and specialization desig-
nations based on the work of the Ban-
ner Center.
The initial funding is for the first
year of a three-year plan of work
which FFBF anticipates will eventual-
ly result in the Banner Center's being
self-sustaining.
More information about Florida
Farm Bureau is available on the orga-
nization's Web site, http://Florida-
FarmBureau.org.

Dear Classified Guys,
I consider myself a smart consumer,
but last week I had an experience
that caught me by surprise. Now that
my kids are grown, I started to clean
out the house. Among the items I
wanted to sell were a bunch of chil-
dren's toys. I took the time to review
them, make sure they were in good
working condition and even clean
them up. Then I took out an ad. One
woman came and bought a huge
chunk of what I was selling. I
thought the mQving of things out of
my house was going well until she
stopped back a day later to return
one of the items. She told me that it
was on recall by the manufacturer
and asked for her money
back. I was astounded! It C, 'J
never crossed my mind to .7 ---
look for recalls since all the
toys seemed to work fine. I . .
gave her the refund and took the
item back, but what about the rest of
my things up for sale? Should I con-
tinue trying to sell them?
Carry: It's important to be an educat-
ed consumer whether you're buying or
selling. And it doesn't matter if you're
at the store or shopping the classified.
Cash: You took a great first step by

cleaning up the items and making sure.
they were working properly. That's
important in order to sell things
quickly and create a win-win sale
for both parties.
Carry: For many items, especially
those involving children, you need to
also check to see if they are being
recalled by the manufacturer for any
safety hazards. You can find the infor-
mation by simply visiting The Consumer
Product Safety Commission's (CPSC)
website and searching for the product.
Cash: Safety recalls have gained a
lot of publicity in recent years. In fact,
the Consumer Product Safety
ImpmovementAct (CPSIA) now makes it


illegal to sell products that are on recall
until they have been fixed. Although
the act is geared towards retail outlets, it
does apply to'private citizens as well.
Carry: Since most buyers are not
aware of recalls, you should always
check prior to a sale. If you find an
item was recalled, the fixes are free and
often simple, such as adding safety
parts or warning labels. If the hazard is
more complex, you can return the item
for a replacement.
Cash: As for your other items for
sale, check the CPSC website. If the
items are not listed, then you can have "
peace of mind in knowing that every-
thing is safe for you andLanyone else.

Making the Grade
Do you want to make sure an item
you're buying or selling isn't on the
recall list? Just visit The Consumer
Products Safety Commission k website at
www.cpsc.gov. Their site contains a
complete list of items on recall, the
potential hazard and how to resolve the
issue. The site lists recalls by product
type, manufacturer, product description
and even the type of hazard. Also, if you
have a product that you think should be
recalled, you can report it as well.
Recalling a Time Back
The Consumer Products Safety
Commission lists over 4,500 recalls and
alerts for everything from food to toys.
And some of the largest recalls have
occurred in the last few years. In the
spring of 2009, peanut products were
the focus of attention for the potential
of hosting salmonella. The largest beef
recall in history, over 143 million
pounds, occurred in February 2008.
And one of the most publicized recalls
was in September 2007 when traces of
lead were found in toys manufactured
in China.

Time Out
My wife Jill is constantly battling
with our children over watching tele-
vision during the day. They much
prefer to sit inside glued to the set
rather than venture out and play. You
can imagine how upset they were
when the TV died a few months ago.
They nagged us for weeks until we
finally gave in and-bought a neW set.
However, recently the TV, picture
started fading out after a :-iil:n ,.. ide
One night we looked up the problem
on the internet and found the televi-
Ssion had a recall that read,
"Television may overheat arid turn
off after 20 minutes."
"Maybe we should take it back to
the store," I said to my wife.
": Are you kidding?" she smiled.
"With our kids, I would have paid for.

Hazardous Toxins Lurking in Your Home
People like to think of their home as a sanctuary, a safe retreat. What they
may not know is that their home could be teeming with toxins that pose health
and environmental threats.
Toxins in U.S. homes account for about 90 percent of all reported poisonings
each year, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
While there are many groups that have come to the forefront in recent years to
safeguard homeowners against toxins, taking measures into one's own hands
is one of the best ways to protect against accidental poisonings or other
ramifications of toxin exposure.
Here are some of the most common and
hazardous toxins in and around the home.
1. Lead:Experts are continually modifying what constitutes safe lead levels.
Lead is known to contribute to learning disabilities and behavioral problems.
Lead is found in paint in older houses, old plumbing and soil near highways
and busy roads. Some states mandate lead testing in homes built prior tol978
before they can be resold. Lead can also cause neurological and kidney
damage, high blood pressure, disrupted blood cell production and
reproductive problems.
2. Radon: When people think of lung cancer, they may immediately envision
tobacco smoke and products, and rightfully so. However, radon is the second
leading cause of lung cancer cases. The trouble with radon is that it is a silent
foe. It is a natural radioactive gas that can seep into homes through cracks in
the basement, the surrounding foundation and in well water and enter the
body through the respiratory system.
3. Carbon monoxide: Another silent killer, carbon monoxide is largely
emitted from unserviced furnaces that burn oil, natural gas or butane. It kills
hundreds of people each year in the U.S. alone. Having a carbon monoxide
detector on every level of the home can detect potentially harmful levels early.
4. Formaldehyde: Offgasses (evaporates) from this substance can be
emitted from cushions, particleboard and the adhesives used to manufacture
most inexpensive wood-based products. Carpets and carpet cushions may
also contain formaldehyde, causing eye and upper respiratory Irritation.
According to the EPA, formaldehyde may even cause cancer.
5. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs): VOCs are found in hundreds of
natural and man-made, carbon-based agents. They react quickly with other
carbon-based compounds, and evaporate easily, making them effective
solvents. VOCs can be found in disinfectants and pesticides, too.

Lake City Community College

presents its 2009-10 Lyceum

Performing Arts Series


Jazz will begin the year and show tunes will
end it at the Levy Performing Arts Center, as
the arts facility at Lake City Community
College has announced its 2009-10 Lyceum
Series.
"Once again we have worked hard and
watched many acts and narrowed down to six
our choices of what will comprise a smashing
season at the Levy Performing Arts Center this
year," says Mark Kirby, performing arts center
coordinator at LCCC.
This year's Lyceum lineup c-onsists, as
always, of six shows:
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15: RIVER CITY
SATIN SWING. Go back in time to the
ambience of a 1940s jazz club with the sweet
sounds of Satin Swing, a nine-piece offshoot of
Jacksonville's St. Johns River City Big Band.
This show will be the most enjoyable evening a
swing music lover could want.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27: EVEN MONEY.
A Bluegrass quartet featuring Lake City's own
Skip Johns (OK, he lives in Tallahassee now,
but he'll always be a hometown boy). The
band's title is aptly named-it's a sure bet that
Even Money will provide a superb evening of
entertainment.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2:
TOMASEEN FOLEY'S A CELTIC
CHRISTMAS. This act, which dazzled LPAC
audiences years ago, brings its Christmas show
here. Take a break from the seasonal madness
and celebrate the holiday in a cozy atmosphere
with songs, dance, and music from Ireland.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2010: THE
SPENCERS THEATRE OF ILLUSION.
Thrill to the sight of some of the most cutting-
edge magic ever witnessed live on stage. This
husband and wife team shows that magic is
about spectacle, drama, interaction, and


personality. Come be amazed and entertained!
TUESDAY, MARCH 2, 2010: GOOD
LESSONS FROM BAD WOMEN. In honor of
Women's History Month we bring a funny and
insightful one-woman show by playwright and
actress Dorothy Leeds, who performs as many
famous females throughout the ages, from Eve
to a Chinese empress to Eleanor Roosevelt.
THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 2010:
BROADWAY TONITE! The bright lights of
Broadway come to Lake City! Beautiful
costumes, exciting choreography, and a mix of
new show hits and old standards make for a
fast-paced and thoroughly delightful musical
revue.
"I am proud to say that even in these difficult
economic times we have managed to keep the
same prices for both season and individual
tickets as last year," said Kirby. "Even if I
didn't have an ax to grind, 1 would be bragging
that I think we have a' terrific lineup of shows,
especially when considering the ticket prices."
Brochures for the 2009-10 Lyceum Series
have been mailed-if you have not received
yours, or need further information about the
series, or have any questions about the shows,

Velveeta Underground to perform

at Gainesville 'Free Fridays' concert


GAINESVILLE-The band
Velveeta Underground plays an
eclectic mix of blues, folk and
chamber rock. It is comprised of
two long-time local residents
and musicians that got together
and formed the group in 2006.
The duo has since been playing
regularly at some of the areas
most popular music venues. The
name, a take off on the popular
national group of the sixties,
Velvet Underground, was coined
by band member Jim Wegman
and, according to his partner
Don Austin, they have stuck
with it because it always gets a
smile when they say it.
Austin is a trained vocalist and
multi-instrumentalist who
switches off between the violin,
guitar, mandolin and bass. A
great improvisator on.the violin,
Austin says he never plays a
song quite the same way twice,
but rather his licks are inspired
by blending with the music of
his talented partner. Wegman
sings and plays guitar, as well as
takes his turns on a unique
handmade upright bass banjo
that he invented. When Wegman
is not playing music, he spends
his time painting and is a noted
world class faux artist.
The Downtown Plaza Free
Friday concerts run from 8 p.m.
to 10 p.m. every Friday night
this year from May 1 through
October 30. The Bo Diddley
Community Plaza is located on
the corner of Southeast 1st-

Avenue. The complete schedule

Exotic fish poster



now available


"Don't release exotic pets!" That's the
message behind a new poster available
through a joint effort between the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the Florida
Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA).
The 20" x 36" poster, titled "Some of
Florida's Exotic Freshwater Fishes,"
displays 17 species of nonnative fishes
currently established in Florida. These
exotic species were introduced by man
from foreign countries, and with a couple
of exceptions, are unwanted residents in
the Sunshine State.
There are 34 reproducing exotic fishes
established in Florida, according to the
FWC's Division of Habitat and Species
Conservation. The poster depicts the most
widespread or commonly caught species.
Wildlife artist Diane Rome Peebles
produced 15 of the illustrations used in
this poster. The other two illustrations
were created by well-known wildlife
artist Duane Raver. University and
federal government researchers familiar
with each species advised the artists to
help create attractive, detailed and
accurate depictions.
* The new "Exotic Freshwater Fishes"
poster was designed as a sister-
publication to the FWC's "Freshwater
Fishes" poster.
"The FWC actually initiated this
project several years ago," said PWC
biologist Paul Shafland, who along with
biologist John Cimbaro created the
poster's design. "Without FOWA's
generous funding, it would not have come
to fruition at this time. We are very
grateful for their contribution." '
FOWA provided $2,500 for printing of
9,300 posters, which are being made
available to the public at no cost. The


FWC hopes to convey a simple message.
"It is illegal to release any nonnative
fish or any othernonnative organism in
Florida," said Scott Hardin, the FWC's
exotic species coordinator. "The only way
to really stop exotics is to let people know
they should never release them."
Moreover, some people consider
releasing exotic pets inhumane because
most will die shortly after being released.
However, those that survive could have
detrimental environmental effects.
The FWC has a three-pronged approach
to exotic fishes: prevention of illegal
exotic fish releases through education,
development of specific regulations, and
law enforcement; assessment of those
exotic fishes already present in Florida to
understand what their effects really are;
and management aimed at reducing the
abundance of these unwanted residents.
One management approach is to
encourage people to fish for exotic fishes
they can eat.
There are two exceptions: the butterfly
peacock bass, which was purposefully
released by the FWC to eat other exotic
fishes, while increasing recreational
angling opportunities in metropolitan
Southeast Florida canals; and the triploid
grass carp, which have been introduced to
eat exotic vegetation.
SThe exotic fishes poster is online in a
reduced, printable size at
MyFWC.com/images/Conservation/FW_E
xotics_Poster_Small.jpg or a full-size
poster is available at any of the FWC's
regional offices. More information about
exotic species in Florida is at
MyFWC.com/Nonnatives. In the
,meantime, the FWC is reminding
Floridians: "Help protect our natural
resources - Don't release exotic pets!"

Nightmare on Test Anxiety Street


By.John Hartzog
Lake City Community .
College testing specialist

Once upon a midnight, a
young man was walking ,
down a lonely road. He had
been out all night with his
friends and was on his way
back home when he felt a .I
presence behind him. He " '
turned back to see if he was
being followed but saw ..
nothing and continued on John Hartzog .
his way. The presence he
felt continued to gnaw at his back but each time he
checked only the wind met his gaze. Finally, home on his
doorstep the presence struck from the shadows, paralyzed
with fear the keys slipped from his hands, he gasped for
breath, and he fell forward resting his brow on the front
door. The young man had just remembered he had a math
exam in eight hours. While this is hardly the stuff horror
movies are made of, many people experience a paralyzing
fear that inhibits their test performance capabilities. Test
anxiety, is a severe problem that plagues several people
who take tests every year. While, I doubt "Night of the
LivingExam" will beat the multiplex anytime soon, I'm
here to give you:a few tips on how to deal with your
anxiety before the first tests of the new semester come
and terrorize you into making bad grades.


The biggest tip for reducing test anxiety is to study and
prepare for the examination that you will be taking. The,
greatest fear people experience is that of the, unknown.
Luckily, classes provide the answers to all tests they give
in the form of these expensive tomes called textbooks.
Make sure you always have your books the first day of
class and make sure you look over the material in
question on a regular basis. Taking notes in class is also a
very good way of learning what to expect on the exam.
Avoid "all-nighters" in an attempt to learn everything
before your test. Walking into the classroom on test day
with an idea of what will be presented on the test will
drastically reduce test anxiety and keep your head in the
game. When it comes to test anxiety knowing is half the
battle.
Of course, being prepared helps but other things, can be
done to lower the anxiety one experiences on the exam
day. Be sure to get plenty of rest the night before and
make sure you don't.oversleep on test day. While sleeping
through a test is a great way to not experience anxiety it
also causes you to receive poor grades. Avoid caffeine
products such as coffee, chocolate, and soda pop. These
items can make it difficult for you to fall asleep. Make
sure to have some unwvinding time, spend about a half
hour before bed, listening to music in a dim-lit room or
chatting with a friend before bed. Try to avoid watching
TV or playing video games. These activities could cause
an emotional, response that could once again make it
difficult to sleep. Getting a full eight hours of sleep and
waking up refreshed will help you deal with those pesky
test questions.
The last tip for those staring down the zombie army of
test questions is quite simply, dress appropriately. Make

The biggest tip for

to study and prepare for
the examination that you
will be taking. The
greatest fear people
experience is that of the
unknown.
sure to dress comfortably, the last thing you need to worry
about is being too hot or freezing to death. Dressing in
layers can help avoid that problem since it allows you to
remove or add clothing depending on the temperature of
the room. Also appropriate shoes will also help, the Devil
inay wear Prada but I bet his feet are killing him. after
climbing stairs or running ten minutes across the campus
green. Remember being comfortable is the key on test
day. Whether it is pajamas or your favorite pair of jeans
make sure you're relaxed the day of the big exam.
So, there you have it students, the tips you need to
combat test anxiety. Although it is rather frightening there
is no need for shotguns, police, or the U.S. Army to deal
with this mean monster that goes bump in the night. You
just need to be prepared, dress comfortably, and avoid
those lonely, deserted roads in the late hours of the
evening.

Pythons netted in FWC




undercover investigation


Twelve pythons, destined for illegal sale on
Craig's List, never made it out the door of a New
Port Richey home, thanks to a tip to Lt. Sieve
DeLacure. an investigator for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
DeLacure got a complaint on Monday, Aug. 24,
that illegal transactions were about to occur as the
result of advertising posted on the popular Internet
site. By 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 26, DeLacure
had brought his undercover investigation to a close
when he offered to buy, and then seized eight
Burmese pythons and four reticulated pythons.
TVo adult Burmese pythons measured-8-9 feet in
length. Four adult reticulated pythons measured 4-
9 feet in length. The remaining six albino Burmese
pythons were small juveniles.. The snakes were
taken io Weebee's Pet World in New Port Richey
for safe keeping
The FWC lists Burmese and reticulated pythons
as.reptiles of concern. The snakes are a threat to


Florida's delicate environment if they escape or are
released into the wild illegally. Licenses are
required to own them, another to sell them. Once
they reach 2 inches in diameter, these snake species
must be micro-chipped to identify their owners.
The snakes' owner had neither of the required
licenses, and none of the adult snakes had the
required microchip implant.
Cited was Bradley Scon Dean, 19, of 3632
Haven Dr., New Port Richey, on second-degree
misdemeanor charges of possession of reptiles of
concern without a permit, failure to present a valid
wildlife dealer's license and failure to microchip
the snakes. Dean could face additional charges
stemming from not maintaining records regarding
his source of acquisition. If he acquired the snakes
from'an unlicensed person, charges may be
forthcoming against those involved in the sale to
Dean.
Pending action by the state attorney's office,


Dean's girlfriend. Izabela Bethany Borczyk. 20. of
8622 Hallbuck Rd., Trinity, also may face charges
of being a principal in the first degree to failure to
produce a valid wildlife dealer's license. Charges
not yet filed against Borczyk are for knowingly
placing illegal ads on Craig's List. on behalf of her
boyfriend.
In December 2007. DeLacure received a
complaint about Dean and Borcz� k illegally selling
wildlife (sugar gliders over the Internet \'uthout
the required permit, for \\ which he issued them a
% warning.
"This is an example of good investigative \\ork
in protecting and preventing reptiles of concern
from having a negative iniipact on the future of
Florida's natural resources," said Col. Julie Jones, .
director of the FWC's Division of La% %
Enforcement.

New beetle discovered with help of wildlife grant


A State Wildlife Grant for,a study to enhance the
state's database on rare invertebrates yielded more
than expected. The grant, awarded to the Florida
Natural Areas Inventory, brought a rare discovery: a
new beetle species .culled the Aubuindale iub.. ti 1
scarab, or Polyphylla starkae. .
Donna Stark, a volunteer with the project, found
the medium-sized beetle in a patch of scrub near
Auburndale on the Winter Haven Ridge in Central
Florida in 2007. She made a note that it was a large
PhyJlophaga, which is a group of scarab beetles. It
wasn't until 2009, when she began identifying all
the specimens collected, that she realized it could
possibly be a new species and sent it for
identification to Paul Skelley at the Florida State
Collection of Arthropods.
"Who knows what else might be out there hiding
in other unddrsurveyed areas in the state?" said
Dave Almquist with the inventory group. "This just
shows how littletwe know."
* The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Wildlife Legacy Initiative
runs the State Wildlife Grant program. In the
application for the grant, the Florida Natural Areas
Inventory noted that invertebrate species far
outnumber the combined total of plant and
* vertebrate species in Florida, yet they have received
) the least attention from natural resource agencies.
Destruction and degradation of habitat and localized
distributions may contribute to their extinction'
without more data and careful management. Finding
a new species of any wildlife in Florida is important
news for the FWC and its partners.
"It's very exciting to find a new species," said Dr.
. Thomas Eason, deputy director of the FWC's


Division of Habitat and Species Conservation.
"Anytime we find more diversity among species we.
are heartened. We're happy to have been a partner
,wih.the, Flridda Natural Areas Inventory in this ....
disco-very.":;;: : : . * : . . . * ; ;- .. .
SInvertebrates serve as potential indicators' of
ecosystem trouble and provide vital services to the
environment and humans as well. They are
pollinators, pest controllers, and vital players in the
food webs. The estimated annual economic value of
wild insect ecological contributions, not counting
other invertebrates or domesticated honey bees, is
$57 billion in.the United States, according to a,2006.
article in "BioScience" magazine.


"All of these ridges need preservation while it is
possible," Skelly said. "Once an animal is gone,
whether.known or not, it is gone forever, and we
have, lost any potential to benefit from its. ........
*existence," .. . .i, "- --., .-.-. ; :.:. . , w
Much more still needs to be discovered about the-
Auburndale scrub scarab. -Scientists have never seen
its larvae and know relatively little about its habits,
including how long it lives and whether it occurs
anywhere other than on one tiny patch of scrub. As
for the future, Almquist is certain about one thing.
%"Finding this beetle makes it obvious that we
really need to survey all public lands, especially
those with rare habitats," Almquist said.
