Jasper - Two Division of Forestry firefighters working to contain a Hamilton
County wildfire lost their lives Monday afternoon after becoming trapped by
flames, officials say. Two other firefighters, one from Jasper, were injured after try-
ing to rescue the two.
Josh Burch, 31, of Lake City and Brett Fulton, 52, who has a White Springs ad-
dress but lives in Columbia County, died around 4:47 p.m. Monday as they fought
to contain the reignited Blue Ribbon Fire in Hamilton County, officials said. Both
men were rangers with the Suwannee Forestry Center in Lake City.
Two other rangers, Robert Marvin of Jasper and Stephen Carpenter of Madison

were injured after an at-
tempt to rescue the two
men. They worked with
the Live Oak Forestry
Station.
Hamilton County
Sheriff Harrell Reid said
four tractors were plow-
ing fire containment
lines when one of the
tractors apparently got
stuck on a stump Mon-
day afternoon.
"Another tractor went
to help and the fire got
to them," said Reid.
"They were able to run a
distance from the fire,
but they were con-
sumed."
Burch was a forest
ranger who lived in Lake
City with his wife and
two children. He worked
with the DOF for more
than 10 years. Fulton be-
gan as a professional
welder with DOF 12
years ago. He had been a


forest ranger with the
DOF for more than nine
years. Fulton leaves be-
hind a wife and two
grown children in White
Springs.
"You could not have
asked for a better son, a
most wonderful hus-
band, a fantastic father
and beloved family
member," said Fulton's
mother, Nancy Moseley.
"His many friends loved
him dearly and he will
be dearly missed. He
was so happy with his
job and strived to do his
very best always. He
loved the outdoors and
spent many good times
outside fishing, hunting
and boating and swim-
ming."
Marvin and Carpenter
were taken to area hos-
pitals. Both were treated
for smoke-related in-
juries and released.
The Blue Ribbon wild-
fire on CR 6, about 14


miles east of Jasper, was
initially sparked by
lightning on Thursday,
June 16, according to of-
ficials. The fire was de-
clared contained early
on Monday, but extreme
fire weather conditions
caused it to flare up
again that same day. At
3:13 p.m. the call came in
to the Hamilton County
emergency dispatch that
the fire had reignited
and crews were dis-
patched to the scene. The
Suwannee Forestry Cen-
ter has been actively
working the fire since
early Monday afternoon.
As of mid-afternoon
Tuesday the fire had
been, once again, con-
tained to about 12 acres
of the 206 or so burned.
Reid stated that aerial
photos will be taken
soon to assess the area
and it will be at least one
week before all the in-
vestigative work on the


fire will be done.
"The wildfires have
ravaged our state, burn-
ing more than 200,000
acres, and now, they
have taken the lives of
two of our very own
men," said Agriculture
Commissioner Adam
Putnam. "My thoughts
and prayers go out to
the families and loved
ones of Josh Burch and
Brett Fulton, two coura-
geous heroes who sacri-
ficed their lives for the
safety of others."
White Springs Volun-
teer Fire Department
Chief Steve Stith said
"It's definitely a tragedy
for us."
Fulton, aside from his
primary job with the
DOF, was also a volun-
teer firefighter for the
town of White Springs.
"He was on our de-
partment for about a
month," Stith said. "His
number 706 will be re-


tired and no one will
ever have that number
again."
Stith, along with
everyone who has been
touched by this tragedy,
reiterated that every-
body wants to do all
they can for the families.
He also said there are no
words to express the sit-
uation.
"The county is devas-
tated and shocked. Nat-
urally, our prayers and
condolences go out to
the families," Hamilton
County Coordinator
Danny Johnson said.
"We stand ready to as-
sist the families in any
way we can. It's a
tremendous honor to
give your life for your
community in the line of
duty."
Major John Davis of
HCSO, who has been
regularly monitoring the
situation said, "It's a
horrible tragedy."


In a press release from
Gov. Rick Scott on Tues-
day, he stated, "As Flori-
da faces a significant
threat from more than
400 wildfires across our
state, we are saddened
to learn of the tragic loss
of two of our veteran
firefighters, Josh Burch
and Brett Fulton. We
pray for the comfort and
strength for their fami-
lies and fellow firefight-
ers."
Florida's dry weather
since the beginning of
May has caused extreme
fire activity. Since May
1, the Department's Di-
vision of Forestry has
battled more than 1,500
wildfires that have
burned nearly 200,000
acres across the state,
making it one of the
busiest wildfire years in
recent history. Florida
firefighters face an aver-
age of more than 31 new
wildfires every day.

groups (ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-
11, and 12-14), as well
as beginning an intern
(ages 16 - 20) Learn to
Earn program," said
Lofton.
The HOPE program
opens its doors on Sun-
rise Street at 7:30 a.m.
and concludes each
weekday at 5:30 p.m.
Also at the meeting
was Elaine Rozier of
the Jasper City Council.
The Jasper and White
Springs communities
have been discussing a
partnership for support
of the HOPE pro-
gram. Rozier confirmed
Jasper's support with a
commitment of $5,000
to White Springs.
In 2010, there were 20
Jasper children who
participated in the
summer program. This
year the eligible num-
ber has been increased
to 30.
Rozier expressed her
appreciation for the co-
operative effort.
White Springs Mayor
Helen Miller stated,


"As neighbors, the
Jasper and White
Springs communities
have much to gain by
sharing resources, and
that a multi-jurisdic-
tional working group
composed of Jasper,
Jennings and White
Springs is being
formed to address a
number of countywide
issues, including sum-
mer recreational and
educational programs
for youth."

da's charter school
movement is to provide
an educational experi-
ence to use bold new
ideas to further institute
positive educational
outcomes for Florida
children.
A charter school,
Miller explained, is a
public school of choice
that is developed using


public funds to serve
public school students
in a community. They
operate under a con-
tract (sponsorship)
which, in this case,
would fall under the
Hamilton County
School District. Charter
schools are effective be-
cause they are freed
from many of the regu-
lations in place for tra-
ditional public schools.

Numerous studies, he
said, have shown that
municipalities with high
performing schools also
have strong economic
growth.
Prior to the workshop,
White Springs Mayor
Helen Miller accompa-
nied Adam Miller (no
relation), as he visited
the HOPE Adult and
Community Education
program, the HOPE af-
ter school program, and
the Carver School prop-
erty, which has been
proposed as the site for
a charter school.
Adam Miller noted
that the experience of
the White Springs com-
munity in forming its
HOPE committee, its
success securing local,
state/federal and foun-
dation funding, about
$310,000, and its track
record implementing
adult education and K-
12 programs is an im-
portant asset in the
planning process for a
successful charter school
start-up.
Spencer Lofton, direc-
tor of the HOPE sum-
mer and after school
programs, was com-
mended for his out-
standing implementa-
tion of both programs.
The HOPE after school
program, funded by a
grant from the DOE
Mentoring and Student
Assistance Initiatives
program, received out-
standing scores on sur-
veys completed by
teachers, parents and


students, as recorded by
the program's external
evaluator, Dr. Bahiyyih
Watson Maroon. Dr.
Maroon's evaluations
documented the pro-
gram's success in
achieving 98 percent of
all objectives and elevat-
ing educational and life
skills capabilities among
100 percent of students
served.
During the workshop,
the Hamilton County
School District was rep-
resented by school
board members Johnny
Bullard and Sammy Mc-
Coy, and Assistant Su-
perintendent Rex
Mitchell. Bullard raised
questions about school
funding, teacher partici-
pation in the state
teacher pension plan,
and newly mandated
teacher evaluation re-
quirements.
Adam Miller said
state funding follows
students in a charter
school the same way
funding follows stu-
dents in traditional pub-
lic schools. A charter
school, he said, can
choose to participate in
the state's teacher pen-
sion plan, and all char-
ter schools must adhere
to the new teacher eval-
uation mandates passed
by the Florida Legisla-
ture during the 2011
session.
When Vice Mayor
Walter McKenzie asked
if the community could
focus on certain priority
fields in the charter


school, such as environ-
mental studies, ad-
vanced technology, and
cultural heritage and
eco-tourism, Adam
Miller responded in the
affirmative.
As long as the charter
school meets Florida's
Next Generation Sun-
shine State Standards
for each grade level, he
said, it may also offer
special fields of study
and innovative instruc-
tion methodologies.
Adam Miller noted
that research indicates
many students are sub-
ject to "summer brain-
drain," actually regress-
ing two months of
learning during summer
vacation, and that sum-
mer educational pro-
grams are one way to
deal with the issue.
Another, he stated, is
to change the school cal-
endar to year-long edu-
cational programming,
providing mini-vaca-
tions throughout the
year.
Subsequent to the
workshop, Helen Miller
met with DOE officials
to continue the dialog
on best practices for
charter school applica-
tion and implementa-
tion.
"Our goal is to offer
the best educational cur-
riculum and most ad-
vanced technologies so
that White Springs
graduates are able to
compete effectively in
the global marketplace,"
she said.

Jeanie Daniels receives Certified

Board Member Distinction


il feinwhitesprings@gmail.co


the work that they will do goes out to incoming Pres-
ident Carol Stob and new board members Karen
Williams and Lei Lani Davis.
I just received the terrible sad news about the two
firefighters of the Division of Forestry who were
killed yesterday while fighting the Blue Ribbon Fire
in Northern Hamilton County. Josh Burch and Brett
Fulton have lost their lives. Burch, 31, was a Forest
Ranger who lived in Lake City with his wife and two
children. Brett Fulton, 63 years old, was a White
Springs resident, a Forestry Service fire fighter and
also a volunteer in our White Springs Fire Dept. He
manned one of our fire towers as well as a tractor.
Evidently Fulton and Burch were manning a fire
tractor that got caught in a spot where they could not
extricate it. In an age where public service is often
underappreciated, these brave men were long time
firefighters who ultimately gave all they could give
to serve and protect us. Words are inadequate but I
hope their families know we shall never, ever forget
their sacrifice. Life in White Springs is saddened by
this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out
for these brave men and their families, friends and
co-workers.

OPINION


America's new racists


The late South African economist
William Hutt, in his 1964 book, "The
Economics of the Colour Bar," said
that one of the supreme tragedies of
the human condition is that those
who have been the victims of injus-
tices and oppression "can often be ob-
served to be inflicting not dissimilar
injustices upon other races."
Born in 1936, I've lived through
some of our openly racist history,
which has included racist insults,
beatings and lynchings. Tuskegee In-
stitute records show that between the
years 1880 and 1951, 3,437 blacks and
1,293 whites were lynched. I recall my
cousin's and my being chased out of
Fishtown and Grays Ferry, two pre-
dominantly Irish Philadelphia neigh-
borhoods, in the 1940s, not stopping
until we reached a predominantly
black North or South Philly neighbor-
hood.
Today all that has changed. Most
racist assaults are committed by
blacks. What's worse is there're
blacks, still alive, who lived through
the times of lynching, Jim Crow laws
and open racism who remain silent in
the face of it.
Last year, four black Skidmore Col-
lege students yelled racial slurs while
they beat up a white man because he
was dining with a black man. Skid-
more College's first response was to


offer counseling
to one of the
black students
charged with the
crime. In 2009, a
black Columbia
University pro-
fessor assaulted a
white woman
during a heated


argument about
race relations. According to inter-
views and court records obtained and
reported by Denver's ABC affiliate
(12/4/2009), black gangs roamed
downtown Denver verbally venting
their hatred for white victims before
assaulting and robbing them during a
four-month crime wave. Earlier this
year, two black girls beat a white girl
at a McDonald's, and the victim suf-
fered a seizure. Chicago Mayor Rahm
Emanuel ordered an emergency shut-
down of the beaches in Chicago be-
cause mobs of blacks were terrorizing
families. According to the NBC affili-
ate there (6/8/2011), a gang of black
teens stormed a city bus, attacked
white victims and ran off with their
belongings.
Racist black attacks are not only
against whites but also against
Asians. In San Francisco, five blacks
beat an 83-year-old Chinese man to
death. They threw a 57-year-old


woman off a train
platform. Two
black Oakland
teenagers assault-
ed a 59-year-old
Chinese man; the
punching
knocked him to
the ground,
killing him. At
Philly's South


Philadelphia High School, Asian stu-
dents report that black students rou-
tinely pelt them with food and beat,
punch and kick them in school hall-
ways and bathrooms as they hurl
racial epithets such as "Hey, Chinese!"
and "Yo, Dragon Ball!" The Asian
American Legal Defense and Educa-
tion Fund charged the School District
of Philadelphia with "deliberate indif-
ference" toward black victimization of
Asian students.
In many of these brutal attacks, the
news media make no mention of the
race of the perpetrators. If it were
white racist gangs randomly attacking
blacks, the mainstream media would
have no hesitation reporting the race
of the perps. Editors for the Los An-
geles Times, The New York Times
and the Chicago Tribune admitted to
deliberately censoring information
about black crime for political rea-
sons. Chicago Tribune Editor Gerould

Pastor Hutto's 20th anniversary celebrated at Jasper's First Baptist Church


Pastor Hutto & family, along with past and present church members celebrated
his 20th anniversary with the First Baptist Church of Jasper on June 5, 2011.


Submitted by Sarah
Davis

On June 5, First Baptist
Church of Jasper cele-
brated its pastor, Roger


Hutto's 20th anniversary
with the church. Memo-
ries from members past
and present and perfor-
mances of some of his fa-
vorite songs were in-


cluded in the morning
service. More than 200
people attended the cele-
bration, with more than
two dozen former youth
coming for the special
occasion.
The Rev. Laddie De-
Rocco, Jr. provided the
message in word. For-
mer youth who spoke
included JT Bridges, Vic-
toria Harris and Hannah
Perez. Mantha Young
presented Hutto with a
monetary gift provided
by numerous contribu-
tions from members and
former members.
Hutto became music
and youth minister in
June 1991, a fresh gradu-
ate of Stetson University
with a new bride in
tow. Then in 2008, he
moved into the role of
pastor, adding up to 20
years of ministering to
the community.
"He had the proper
education," said Man-
tha Young, who was on
the 1991 search commit-
tee for a music and
youth minister. "More
than that, he had the
deeper love. I don't
think he had the inten-
tions of being here 20
years. I don't know of
any 20-something who
would think that. But
he did come, and he fell
in love. I think he fell
into a deep love for the
people of Jasper."
A 2005 study by Grey
Matter Research shows
that pastors on average
stay with a church for
eight years.
Throughout his time
with First Baptist, Hut-
to has assembled count-
less musicals for youth
and adult choir, with
his wife Laura helping
with the staging and
sets.
"I can tell you that I


have been a church pi-
anist for 30 years and
have worked with many
directors throughout
those years," said Lora
Tyre, church pianist.
"Out of all of those di-
rectors, I have never
worked with another
who is as naturally gift-
ed as Rog. He can drive
one crazy with his laid-
back attitude and last-
minute preparations, but
somehow, everything al-
ways seems to come to-
gether. I have always
appreciated the fact that
for Roger the 'message'
is as important as the
'music'."
Through the past 20
years Hutto and his wife
have filled whatever
roles needed to be filled,
from janitorial service to
caring for the parsonage
when it was vacant in
between pastors. All the
while, Hutto was be-
coming the man the
whole church - not just
the youth - came to rely
on.
"Roger is my brother,"
former youth Kellan
Dedge said. "He has al-
ways made himself
available to help me and
love me. Whether it was
algebra or discipleship,
he cared. I love him for
that."
That discipleship has
proved to be the hall-
mark of Hutto's min-
istry. As he sought to
equip youth with a solid
foundation in Biblical
knowledge, God led sev-
eral of them to go into
full-time ministry them-
selves, including Arnie
McCall, Justin Young,
Kellan Dedge and De-
Rocco.
"Roger is my pastor,"
said Justin Young, pas-
tor at First Baptist
Church of White
Springs. "As someone
who seeks to lead God's
people, Roger is always
there to help lead me."
"Roger doesn't just
talk the talk," Mantha
Young said. "But that is
such a cliche that doesn't
do him justice. He does-
n't just teach that you
should disciple. He dis-
ciples. That's what I
think of when I think of
Roger Hutto. He takes
the time to disciple.
"He has been instru-
mental in our communi-
ty, helping people who
are not even members of
our church. He goes any-
time someone calls."
Mantha's husband Rick


reiterates that
point. "Every time chil-
dren in my family were
born, he's been there,"
he said. "Every time our
family lost a loved one,
he's been there. Every
time we had a gradua-
tion, he's been there.
He's been there for my
family every time."
When you take a look
at photos of the youth
who have become
adults, you see pictures
of Hutto with them dur-
ing those momentous
occasions. There's Hutto
with Amber Crews at
her wedding and Lind-
sey Burnam at her high
school graduation. But
Hutto didn't just attend
the special events near-
by, as several speakers
mentioned during the
celebration. He traveled
to California to visit
Ruben Perez after boot
camp, and New Orleans
to see Victoria Harris
compete in a pageant.
"I believe Roger has
helped me to become
who I am today," said
former church member
Austin Gaver, who has
since moved to the Jack-
sonville area. "He is al-
ways available for any-
thing and he will make
time for anyone. He has
the heart of gold. Roger
also was one of the min-
isters at my wedding."
When the time came to
look for a pastor in 2008,
Rick Young served on
the search committee.
The group of church
members took the time
to consider other candi-
dates, but the choice was
becoming clear.
"He is the perfect


match," he said. "He
knew us; he already
knew what we were
about. He already knew
our short-comings. You
can meet members of
your future church, but
until you get to be with
them on a daily basis,
you don't know what it
will be like. He already
knew us and loved us."
That love has helped a
number of families
though the tough years
of teenage children.
"What he has done for
my girls, only he, they
and God knows," said
Sybil Rogers, the mother
of three women who are
confident in their rela-
tionship with Christ. "I
honestly don't know
what Roy (her husband)
and I would have done
without his input. I am
positive if Roger had not
had so many activities
for the youth my girls
would have gotten into
more trouble than what
they did."
All that activity for
youth sometimes meant
Hutto's wife Laura ei-
ther spent time with
dozens of teenagers or
spent time without her
husband. "Laura has
been right there beside
him," Mantha Young
said. "He's been gone a
lot and she's been right
there supporting him the
entire 20 years. That says
a lot of her character."
The Huttos recently
celebrated their 20th
wedding anniversary
shortly after welcoming
their second child, Emily
on May 17. They also
have a son named Luke.


Letter to the

Editor

Dear Editor,

I think the City of Jasper enjoyed a great fes-
tival on June the Eleventh. This was made pos-
sible because of the hard work of one of Hamil-
ton County's own lifelong citizens. She puts her
heart and soul into any project she partakes of
and the final result is a good time for everyone
and improving Hamilton County.
I understand there are other projects that she
is working on to improve our county that
I (and many others) appreciate her efforts. So,
when you pass her in the grocery store or see
her around town, pat her on the back because
she won't do it herself. Thank you CINDY
BASS EATMON.

From Sandy McCall, Linda Taylor,
and a grateful County.


Kern recently said that the paper's
reason for censorship was to "guard
against subjecting an entire group of
people to suspicion."
These racist attacks can, at
least in part, be attributed to the black
elite, who have a vested interest in
racial paranoia. And that includes a
president who has spent years
aligned with people who have pro-
moted racial grievance and polariza-
tion and appointed an attorney gener-
al who's accused us of being "a nation
of cowards" on matters of race and
has refused to prosecute black thugs
who gathered at a Philadelphia vot-
ing site in blatant violation of federal
voter intimidation laws. Tragically,
black youngsters -- who are seething
with resentments, refusing to accept
educational and other opportunities
unknown to blacks yesteryear -- will
turn out to be the larger victims in the
long run.
Black silence in the face of black
racism has to be one of the biggest be-
trayals of the civil rights struggle that
included black and white Americans.

Question:
Is it true I must now
receive my benefits
through direct deposit?
Answer:
Anyone applying for
benefits on or after May
1, 2011, will be required
to receive their pay-
ments electronically,
while those already re-
ceiving paper checks
will need to switch by
March 1, 2013. Paper
checks will no longer be
an option for most peo-
ple. If you don't have a
bank account, you can
receive your benefits
through the Direct Ex-
press debit Mastercard.
Switching from checks
to electronic payments is
fast, easy, and free at
www.godirect.org. You
also can call the U.S.
Treasury Processing
Center's toll-free
helpline at-1-800-333-
1795, speak with a bank
or credit union represen-
tative, or contact Social
Security for help.
Question:
How do I know when
it's the right time for me
to apply for retirement
benefits?
Answer:


If you use our online
Retirement Estimator,
you can get estimates of
your benefit at various
ages from age 62, the
earliest eligibility age, to
age 70, the age when
you can take full advan-
tage of delayed retire-
ment credits. It allows
you to key in multiple
scenarios so you can get
an instant, personalized
estimate of your future
retirement benefits. It's
the best way to begin
planning for your retire-
ment. You can find the
online Retirement Esti-
mator at www.socialse-
curity.gov/ estimator.
Question:
What is the benefit
amount a spouse may be
entitled to receive?
Answer:
If you are eligible for
both your own retire-
ment benefit and for
benefits as a spouse, we
will always pay you
benefits based on your
record first. If your ben-
efit as a spouse is higher
than your retirement
benefit, you will receive
a combination of bene-
fits equaling the higher
spouse's benefits. A
spouse generally re-
ceives one-half of the re-

Thank You
We thank you and appreciate all the flowers,
cards, food and prayers during our time of sor-
row. Our Mother was special to us and we knew
she was special to others. The following poem is
in her memory:
God looked around His garden and he found
an empty place. He then looked down upon this
earth and He saw your tired face. He put His
arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful. He only takes
the best. He knew that you were suffering, He
knew you were in pain, He knew that you would
never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting tough and the
hills were hard to climb, so He closed your eye-
lids and whispered "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't
go alone; for part of us went with you, the day
God took you home. God Bless you.

Submitted by Heather Futch, 4-H/ FCS
Agent I UF/ IFAS

The development of life skills among
youth is a primary goal for the 4-H pro-
gram. While oral communication skills
are among the skills most commonly
associated with productive living, they
are not as heavily emphasized as writ-
ing, reading and computing. In order
to enhance these skills in a high num-
ber of Hamilton County youth, the
Hamilton County 4-H Program and
Tropicana offered the 4-H/Tropicana
Public Speaking Program to all fourth,
fifth and sixth grade students. Hamil-
ton County schools, public and private,
have recognized the importance of
communicating effectively, and have
endorsed the inclusion of this public
speaking education program in the
curriculum for 4th, 5th, and 6th
graders.
The 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking
Program began in 1969 in Manatee
County, location of Tropicana's main
office. Prior to 1986 the program was
conducted in the 4th, 5th, and 6th
grades in eight Florida counties. In
2005 Hamilton County joined many
other counties all over the state of
Florida participating in the 4-H/Tropi-
cana Public Speaking Program. During
the past couple of months, approxi-
mately 400 students of Hamilton Coun-
ty participated in this program. In ad-
dition, countless volunteers helped stu-
dents and approximately 25 teachers
served as 4-H Public Speaking Project
leaders by setting aside part of their
classroom time to help students re-
search, organize, practice, critique, and
present speeches.
As an integral part of this contest,
Tropicana provided development and
printing of all materials including
teacher lesson plans, student
brochures, etc. Tropicana also provid-
ed ribbons, medallions, and plaques
for participants at various levels of the
competition.


Fifth grade County winners in the 4H/Tropicana Public Speaking competition were: 1st place Jes-
sica Carter, 2nd place Diane Carter, 34d place Anslie Creech, and Honorable Mention Thassany
Brown. The awards were presented by Heather Futch, 4-H/FCS agent.


Fourth grade County winners in the 4H/Tropicana Public Speaking competition were: 1st place Lo-
gan Hughes, 2nd place Allie Pinello, 3rd place Victoria Franklin, and Honorable Mention Angie
Sanchez. The awards were presented by Heather Futch, 4-H/FCS agent.


Sixth grade County winners in the 4H/Tropicana Public Speaking competition were: 1st place
Kaleigh Norris, 2nd place Amanda Hughes, 3rd place Madison Brantley, and Honorable Mention
Zack Morgan. The awards were presented by Heather Futch, 4-H/FCS agent.

provided a welcome to students and
other visitors. Mrs. Pinello introduced

nett, Brian Estevez, and Kevin Lewis.
Youth spoke on a number of different
things including softball, pets, heroes,
heritage, and their school. Judges tal-

Social Security questions

and Answers

tired worker's full bene-
fit unless the spouse be-
gins collecting benefits
before full retirement
age. If the spouse begins
collecting benefits before
full retirement age, the
amount of the spouse's
benefit is reduced by a
percentage based on the
number of months be-
fore he or she reaches
full retirement age. For
example, based on the
full retirement age of 66,
if a spouse begins col-
lecting benefits:
At age 65, the benefit
amount would be about
46 percent of the retired
worker's full benefit;
At age 64, it would be
about 42 percent;


At age 63, 37.5 per-
cent; and
At age 62, 35 percent.
However, if a spouse
is taking care of a child
who is under age 16 or
disabled and receiving
Social Security benefits
on the same record, a
spouse will receive full
benefits, regardless of
age. Learn more by
reading our Retirement

Question:
I'm applying for dis-
ability benefits. Do I au-
tomatically
receive Medicare bene-
fits if I'm approved for
disability benefits?
Answer:
You will receive


Medicare after you re-
ceive disability benefits
for 24 months. When
you become eligible for
disability benefits, we
will automatically enroll
you in Medicare. We
start counting the 24
months from the month
you were entitled to re-
ceive disability, not the
month when you re-
ceived your first pay-
ment. Special rules ap-
ply for people with per-
manent kidney failure
and those with "Lou
Gehrig's Disease" (amy-
otrophic lateral sclero-
sis). Learn more about

Notes E
By Lillian Norris
Good Morning (or
whatever time it is with
you right now) at this
writing it is a beautiful
day, promises to be a
hot one but right now
there is a little breeze. A
few weeks ago I put out
a bird feeder hoping to
see some red birds, so
far had not seen any but
could hear the birds so I
knew they were around.
While I was gone the
other day my neighbor
said she SAW ONE, so I
have re-seeded and still
hopeful. Cardinals are
my favorite.
Last week I had to
leave before finishing
my column so want to
report on the very won-
derful time at the VFW
building on last Tues-
day. The service of the
disposal of flags that
were worn and faded, in


bad condition, was very
impressive. Comman-
der of the Post, Lamar
Royals, was in charge of
the service and with
others assisting held an
impressive service, ex-
plaining the process of
doing this in a sacred
manner. The playing of
Taps by Roger Hutto
was an inspirational clo-
sure.
Following the ceremo-
ny those attending were
treated to a very tasty
luncheon of fish, hush
puppies, cole slaw and
all the trimmings, plus
homemade cake for
dessert, thanks to a
group of wonderful
ladies who are great
cooks, the men did the
fish. The luncheon hon-
ored widows of WWII.
There were small flags
placed on the graves of
the Veterans, put there
by Mrs. Fye. We under-
stand that the Veterans
Service Office provides
flags, although there
was a shortage this year


and some had to be pur-
chased, but they will be
furnished each year.
Last week we lost one
of our favorite ladies of
the community, Ulma
Braswell, who lacked a
few days making her
94th birthday. She lived
her life to the fullest, a
great supporter of her
community, having
served for a number of
years as Tax Collector,
completing the term of
hr last husband, Dan
Braswell, and then be-
ing elected. Ulma
served her Church faith-
fully. She was one of the
first ladies elected as an
elder in First Presbyter-
ian Church, Jasper. She
prepared Communion
for many years as long
as she was able, kept
her eyes on the grounds
of the Church, provided
flowers, specialties
(such as egg custard)
and other goodies pre-
pared by her own
hands; always available
for whatever was need-


Small counties do well in a difficult budget year


Submitted
Tallahassee, FL - Although it was a
tough budget year in Tallahassee for
the 2011 Legislative Session, small fis-
cally constrained counties did see
some light at the end of the tunnel. "I
represent all or part of ten small coun-
ties, of which nine are fiscally con-
strained. I made sure legislators knew
how their decisions would affect the
lives of the people in my district," said
Representative Leonard Bembry (D-
Greenville). "There were a lot of cuts in
the budget that I couldn't support,
mainly affecting education and the el-
derly."
Critical programs for fiscally con-
strained counties were fully funded
this year including Revenue Sharing,
Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT), and
Pre-trial Detention Offset. These
monies help fill the gap for struggling
counties created by unfunded man-
dates.
Representative Bembry currently
serves on the Agriculture & Natural
Resources Appropriations Subcom-
mittee as Ranking Member and was in-
strumental in retaining the PILT fund-
ing. He stated, "I'm very aware of how
important these dollars are to our
small counties. They depend on this
money every year to help defray lost


ad valorem revenues due to conserva-
tion easements purchased on lands."
To qualify for this program, a county
in which the Water Management Dis-
trict has purchased land must have a
population of less than 150,000. Pay-
ments are made each year for the pre-
vious year's taxes lost by these coun-
ties.
Local libraries were saved from the
chopping block by being funded at
$21.3 million, an increase of $100,000
from 2010. Representative Bembry
stated, "Libraries open a new world to
our children and helps them under-
stand the importance of learning and
of education. They will enjoy their ed-
ucational background for a lifetime"
Also saved were the Small County
Road Assistance Program (SCRAP)
and Small County Outreach Program
(SCOP). Both of these programs pro-
vide funding for repaving and road
widening. Without the SCRAP and
SCOP funds, many small counties
would not be able to improve or pave
roads. The Small County Solid Waste
Recycling Program was maintained at
$2.4 million. These monies provide es-
sential funding for counties with pop-
ulations fewer than 100,000 to imple-
ment education programs and recy-
cling efforts.


ed. Her many friends
feel her loss, along with
her daughters, Jean-
nette, Marsha, Elizabeth,
Dana and her grandchil-
dren and great grand-
children, and other fam-
ily members. Reverend
Sandra Hendrick, Pastor
and Rev. Bill Platt, for-
mer pastor and neigh-
bor, were in charge of
the service.
On Sunday Johnny
Bullard, Jerry Lawrence
Bullard and Kerry Wal-
dron, accompanied at
the piano by Amanda
Bullard, presented a
program of Christian
music at First United
Methodist Church,
Jasper, I was privileged
to attend with Gerry


and Margaret Lewis and
their family. We joined
the Methodist Church
families and other
friends for a most deli-
cious lunch afterwards.
This group is great and
makes Hamilton County
fortunate to claim them,
and the greatest thing,
what makes them so
special, is that they en-
joy what they do, and
believe in the message
they bring. If you get a
chance, take the oppor-
tunity to enjoy their
message in song.
We are still enjoying
the 'fruits' of the Black-
berry Festival and hope
you are, too. Remember
the jellies and jams are
available at Bass' Furni-


Heart Matters
By Angie Land
Recently while eating out, I over-
heard two young women nearby
lamenting the hardships of being mar-
ried, reciting quite an impressive list of
their husband's shortcomings. I
couldn't help but grin over their mutu-
al conclusion that men are clueless. I'm
willing to bet that if I asked these hus-
bands what would make their wives
happy, they would gladly confirm the
clueless verdict! Thinking about this
reminds me of a story I once read
about one man who was not so clue-
less...
"Long ago, in a primitive culture, it
was required that before they married,
the young men had to bargain with the
girl's father for her. The fathers of the
village demanded payment for their
daughters generally in the form of
cows. Three cows could buy an above-
average wife, and four or five cows a
very beautiful wife!
Johnny, the brightest, strongest, and
most handsome man in the village
loved Sarita. Sarita most generously
could have been described as being
plain. She was not truly ugly, but nei-
ther attractive. She was shy and older
than most girls at the time of marriage.
The villagers' loved to gossip about
the bargaining price of a girl. Some
said Johnny might offer two or three
cows. Others said Sarita's father might
take one cow since nobody was inter-


ture.
From all reports the
Masquerade Ball was a
great success and those
who attended are al-
ready making plans for
next year.
Our congratulations
to Amber Lee Abbott on
winning North Florida
Texaco Country Show-
down, and we wish
her well as she pursues
her future in country
music.
I am still at the same

Until next week,
Lillian Norris


ested in her.
Johnny went to meet with Sarita's fa-
ther and offered ten cows for her.
Everyone was astonished! That was
the highest price ever paid for a bride
in their village! Soon, Johnny herded
ten cows to his future father-in-law.
The wedding was held that same
evening.
Time passed, Sarita changed. Her
eyes dazzled, and she moved and
spoke with striking grace and poise.
People who came to the village and
had never seen Sarita before remarked
that she was the region's most beauti-
ful woman.
Much later, someone asked Johnny
why he paid such a high price for her.
Why offer ten cows when he could
have had her as his wife for less? Did
he make such an offer to make her
happy?
"Yes, I wanted her to be happy, but I
wanted more than that. The most im-
portant thing that changes a woman is
how she thinks about herself. Sarita
believed that she was worth nothing.
Now she knows she is worth more
than any other woman in the village."
Johnny concluded, "I loved Sarita and
no other woman, and I wanted to mar-
ry her...but I also wanted a ten-cow
wife." Men...just what kind of wife do
you want?
Because Your Heart Matters,
Angie
