Hamilton County this year


Joyce Marie Taylor
joycemarie.taylor@gaflnews.com
Due to ongoing weather conditions and a burn ban
Hamilton County residents won't be allowed this
holiday weekend.
"Due to an ongoing burn ban in effect for Hamil-
ton County, fireworks have been canceled for the 4th
of July," said Samantha Prueter of the Hamilton
County Chamber of Commerce.
Because of the recent wildfires and the drought sit-

uation it was deemed
safer not to allow any
fireworks in the county
for the holiday.
Prueter stated that
they hope to possibly
reschedule the festivities
at a later time.

a shock to many


Tyler Rogers, 20, died from
apparent heart failure Saturday

Hamilton County is in mourning following
the sudden death of a beloved, young volun-
teer firefighter who died of heart failure at his
home in Jennings Saturday.
When emergency personnel arrived at Tyler
Rogers' home on Saturday evening, Rogers'
fellow volunteer firefighter Jason Singletary
was the first, and last, to commence CPR on
his friend that tragic evening.
"It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do
in my life," said Singletary. "I didn't want to
face the reality that I was spending my last
minutes with Tyler doing CPR, just trying to
save his life. Sweat was dripping off my head
and tears were falling out of my eyes onto his
chest. I was trying to save his life."
Rogers was diagnosed with aortic stenosis,
a narrowing of the aortic valve, when he was
4-years-old, according to his mother Rhonda
Lewis. Recently, Lewis said he had been com-

The senior services building
at 1509 Martin Luther King
Drive in Jasper that was de-
stroyed by fire on December 9


has now been completely de-
molished and removed from
the site. A new building will be
constructed according to
Hamilton County Coordinator
Danny Johnson.
At 4:24 a.m. on Dec. 9, 2010


coming soon
the Jasper Fire Department re-
ceived the fire emergency call
and dispatched a unit to the
building. After the flames were

mined the structure was a complete loss.
Johnson said the fire most likely started in the at-
tic where the building's air conditioning ductwork
was located and that insurance issues have held up
the rebuilding.
The new senior services center will be located just
a few feet away from where the original building
stood since the fire compromised the foundation, ac-


cording to Johnson.
"I would hope it would be done by the end of the
year," Johnson said. "But most likely it will be early
2012."
Seniors in Jasper have been up in arms ever since
the building burned down, complaining that the
Suwannee River Economic Council wasn't doing
enough for them at their temporary home in the 911
mapping building at the courthouse annex, some
have stated. At one point they threatened to go on


strike because they said there was no potable water
at the building, they claimed. Johnson said there is
running tap water in the building and that people
were complaining because there was no water cool-
er available like they used to have in the old build-
ing.
By year's end or soon thereafter, everything
should be back to normal and the SREC will once
again welcome the seniors of the city of Jasper into a
brand new building.

plaining of tiring easily, but Rogers
didn't feel like it was anything to wor-
ry about.
The always happy 20-year-old
known for his contagious smile was a
2009 graduate of Corinth Christian
Academy in Jasper, a volunteer fire-
fighter with Crossroads Volunteer Fire
Department in Jennings and an auxil-
iary member of Hamilton County
Sheriff's Posse.
"My Tyler was a wonderful, happy-
go-lucky baby, and he carried those
traits with him his entire 20 years,"
said Lewis. "I don't even know how to
begin to accept the fact that he is gone.
I am holding on tight to my memo-
ries."
Rogers was also a clerk at the S&S
convenience store in Jasper where he
worked for a little over a year.
Manager of the S&S Kim Kinsey
said store employees are creating a
photo collage that will be placed be-


hind the counter in memory of Rogers.
"We were all devastated," she said.
"He was one of those individuals that
never stopped making people laugh. "
While Singletary was still doing
CPR on Rogers, employees from S&S
and other friends and family drove to
the residence and began filling the
yard.
"The whole staff went to his house,"
said Kinsey. "Our regular customers
can't believe it."
Singletary is also an employee at the
same S&S where Rogers worked.
"If anyone was having a bad day, he
was the one who would make it bet-
ter," said Singletary.
Rogers' grandmother Bernice Lovett
said she was there when her grandson
was born and she was there during his
last moments.
"I was there and can say, he came
out happy and stayed happy for al-
most twenty-one years," said Lovett.
"He'd go to bed with a smile on his
face and wake up with a smile. The

last face I saw on him, he was grin-
ning."
Rogers' sister Tayler Rogers said
now she's missing her hero.
"I was truly blessed to spend my 17
years of life with my bubba. He kept
me smiling through my darkest days
and even though I never admitted it,
he was truly my hero," she said. "I
know he's smiling down on me now
saying, 'Sissy, cowgirls don't cry'."
Despite his few years on this earth,
the local community also feels they are
missing a hero.
"It hit home when he passed away
for a lot of his friends and family, but
we all made sure he knew he was
loved and would be missed dearly,"
said Jeffrey Taylor. "The one word to
describe Tyler is loyal. If he said he
would be there, he was, if he said I'll
see you tomorrow, he made time. He
made time to spend with his friends
and we love him greatly for that."
Tabitha Fry said Rogers was a won-
derful man.
"God doesn't make too many like
him," she said. "I never saw him with
a frown on his face. He always smiled
and he was always full of life."
She said she had just spoken to
Rogers, who was known for his hugs,


a couple of days before his death and
wished she would have given him one
last hug.
"I just miss him and the S&S and my
world will never be the same without
Tyler Rogers," said Fry.
Sue Cox said Rogers was loved by
just about everyone.
"He always had a smile. Nothing
dampened his spirits. He didn't let his
heart problems stand in his way," she
said.
Support from the community has
been overwhelming, according to
Lewis.
"I have been told by so many, 'What
a wonderful young man you raised'.
Personally, I feel that me and his step-
father and his father only contributed
to half of my Tyler's character, his
friends and church family played a
huge part of Tyler's life. And this has
been so obvious in the out-pouring of
love and support that has been
shown," she said.
Rogers' plans for the future were to
become a certified firefighter for
Hamilton County, according to Single-
tary.
"Tyler lived his life as a go-by-the-
moment kind of person," he said. "He
was a true free bird."

THRSA I 3


By Walter M Kenzie




WH!TE SPRINGS


m f ferri and I at-
/n tended the
- 'funeral for
0I,1 !.ullen fireman, Brett
I. It inil It was a fitting
Si\ tL,. pay tribute to the
i.: -,\ and character of a
'o . et m an, and a hum-
Sbll experience to be in
lthe l prsence of the huge
-- !' lighting community
that came out to show their love and support for this
man and his family. The strong show of support
came from friends and from a group of hundreds of
uniformed men and women who let it be known by
their respectful ceremony and tearful tribute that
they are family too, firefighting family. Contribu-
tions for a fund drive for the Fulton Family are being
collected at Suwannee Hardware and Feed and at
White Springs Town Hall. Please remember the Ful-
ton family in your prayers and please remember to
be extra careful to help prevent fires.
There are people that we seldom see or hear about
who touch our lives and make a positive difference
in our community. Their efforts benefit all of us di-
rectly or indirectly but they seek no recognition and
ask for nothing in return. Rick Shore was such a per-
son. Not many of you knew him but he knew and
loved White Springs. Rick was a very active member
of Suwannee Bicycle Association and White Springs
benefited from his efforts to help SBA build trails in
and around our town and to refurbish and beautify
the exterior of their historic building. He has
worked tirelessly with other members of SBA over
the last year to help build a new trail in the Stephen
Foster Park. Rick was on the board of directors too,
and in that capacity he helped approve plans for the
"bump track," a training course that our town and
SBA are building for the kids of White Springs, and
he approved the dozens of bicycles and helmets that
SBA has contributed to our kids too. All Rick ever
asked for in return was that we give him his fair
share of the road. His friends at SBA said that he
lived life to the fullest each day with a great attitude
and a big smile!!! Rick Shore passed away this week
doing what he loved, riding his bike. The next time
you see a cyclist, recognize Rick and all that he did
for us, and give that cyclist a friendly wave. Our
deepest sympathy goes out to Rick's family and to
all his extended family of friends at the Suwannee
Bicycle Association.
My friend Larry Hoover at the Stephen Foster Park
has asked me to remind the "Friends of the Stephen
Foster Coffee House" that anybody can be a friend


and that th, , .!, i, hI' use is back. The second half of
the 2011 t ,. i, i ii-, season begins this Saturday
evening, July 2nd ! ..1i .' --' pm in the Stephen Fos-
ter Auditorium wh, ,) yIu ,ill be thoroughly enter-
tained. The hostess for this gala will be the park's
own Lucy Spencer. Lucy works in the events de-
partment at the park and plays a mean piano, so
bring your tapping toes and your sing-a-long voice.
The Coffee House needs contributions for the dessert
table and thank you in advance for your donations.
The selling of sweets you provide allows the park to
continue this program, so thank you, thank you,
thank you
Another quick reminder for dog enthusiasts about
an event that will have you barking. "Dog Days of
Summer," July 9th at Stephen Foster State Park from
10am to 4pm. There will be a parade of paws, canine
costumes and trick competition, as well as demon-
strations of all descriptions. Dr. Hawthorne from


\ l ifeinwhitesprings@gmail.corTn


Lake City Animal Hospital will be there to answer
your questions and so will Pet Smart with "free"
give-a-ways. Bring your own dog, but don't forget
the leash - the leash must not exceed 6 ft. and is re-
quired. Regular park entrance fees apply.
Quotation for the week sent to me by one of our
readers: "Stop the war, stop the war within yourself,
then you won't need to fight with someone else."
Saddened as we are at the passing of good people
from our community life, let us not forget that one of
the best ways to honor their memory in life is to step
in and try to fill the void created by their death, and
to do so by giving the same selfless service with the
attitude of joy and love that they gave to all of us.
I hope to see you out and about, enjoying life in
White Springs.

OPINION


Ignorance, stupidity or manipulation


Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., refer-
ring to his race and the Constitution
on John Stossel's recent show "The
State Against Blacks," said, "I wasn't
even considered three-fifths of a guy."
The Rev. Al Sharpton, debating on
Sean Hannity's show, said, "Any
black, at any age at any stage, was
three-fifths of a human." Even emi-
nent historian John Hope Franklin
charged the Founders with "degrad-
ing the human spirit by equating five
black men with three white men."
Statements such as those either repre-
sent ignorance or are part of the leftist
agenda to demean the founding prin-
ciples of our nation by portraying the
nation's Founders as racists. Let's look
at the origin of the three-fifths clause.
Northern delegates to the 1787 Con-
stitutional Convention and those op-
posed to slavery wished to count only
free people of each state for the pur-
pose of representation in the House of
Representatives and the Electoral Col-
lege. Southerners wanted to count
slaves just as any other person. By
counting slaves, who didn't have a
right to vote, slave states would have
had greater representation in the
House and the Electoral College. If
slaveholding states could not have
counted slaves, the Constitution
would not have been ratified and
there would not be a union. The com-
promise was for slaves to be counted
as three-fifths of a person in deciding
representation in the House and Elec-
toral College. The compromise re-
duced the power of slave states rela-
tive to the South's original proposal
but increased it over the North's origi-
nal proposal.
My questions for those who con-
demn the three-fifths compromise are:
Would blacks have been better off if
slaves had been counted as a whole

the Constitution-
al Convention, who argued slaves
should "stand on an equality with
whites" in determining congressional
representation and Electoral College
votes? Abolitionist Frederick Dou-
glass understood the compromise,
saying that the three-fifths clause was
"a downright disability laid upon the
slaveholding states" that deprived
them of "two-fifths of their natural ba-
sis of representation."
Patrick Henry acknowledged reali-
ty, saying, "As much as I deplore slav-
ery, I see that prudence forbids its
abolition." With the union created,
Congress at least had the power to
abolish slave trade in 1808. James Wil-

LIVE OAK, FL June
9, 2011 - Governmental
officials, engineers, and
others associated with
the floodplain manage-
ment industry will
have an opportunity to
receive training in
floodplain manage-
ment through a 4-day
course offered at the
Suwannee River Water
Management District
(District) Office, 9225
County Road 49, Live
Oak, Florida 32060. The
class is scheduled for
July 18-22 from 8 a.m.-5
p.m.
The class, Managing
Floodplain Develop-
ment through The NFIP
(EMI Course Code:


L273), offers the oppor-
tunity for participants to
become a certified
floodplain manager or
to maintain certification.
The course is an orga-
nized training opportu-
nity for local officials re-
sponsible for adminis-
tering their local flood-
plain management ordi-
nances. It will focus on
the National Flood In-
surance Program, the
concepts of sound flood-
plain management,
Flood Insurance Rate
Maps and Flood Insur-
ance Studies, ordinance
administration, and the
relationship between
floodplain management
and flood insurance.
Seating is limited to


"There is not a
man living who
wishes more sin-
cerely than I do to
see a plan adopt-
ed for the aboli-
tion of it." John
Adams: "Every
measure of pru-
dence ... ought to
be assumed for


the eventual total extirpation of slav-
ery from the United States. ... I have,
throughout my whole life, held the
practice of slavery in ... abhorrence."
James Madison: "We have seen the
mere distinction of color made in the
most enlightened period of time, a
ground of the most oppressive do-
minion ever exercised by man over
man." James Otis said, "The colonists
are by the law of nature freeborn, as
indeed all men are, white or black."
Benjamin Franklin: "Slavery is ... an
atrocious debasement of human na-
ture." Franklin, after visiting a black
school, also said, "I ... have conceived
a higher opinion of the natural capaci-


ties of the black race than I had ever
before entertained." Alexander Hamil-
ton's judgment was the same: "Their
natural faculties are probably as good
as ours." John Jay wrote: "It is much
to be wished that slavery may be
abolished. The honour of the States,
as well as justice and humanity, in my
opinion, loudly call upon them to
emancipate these unhappy people. To
contend for our own liberty, and to
deny that blessing to others, involves
an inconsistency not to be excused."
Here's my hypothesis about people
who use slavery to trash the
Founders: They have contempt for
our constitutional guarantees of liber-
ty. Slavery is merely a convenient
moral posturing tool as they try to re-
duce respect for our Constitution.

By Lillian Norris

Here goes. I like to
write my copy and
print it out on paper
(yes, I am from the old
school, edit it best on
paper) however my
printer is not working
this morning. The
storm Sunday after-
noon came into the
room and Windstream
had to come and put in
a new box. At the time
I did not realize the
printer was out also,
but of course he could-
n't do anything about
that anyhow, will have
to see about that now.
Had a quick, but
good, visit this morn-
ing with Cindy Eat-
mon, learned that she
and Bob and all their
family, and their fami-
lies, spent some time at
the beach, had a great,
relaxing vacation.
Cindy even found a

Midway through the

thanking the many peo-

troduced 18 students
who had missed one les-

the stage. They were fol-
lowed by the 19 students
who earned Perfect At-
tendance, spanning from
1 year to 13 years. All of
these students received a
trophy for their hard
work.
Miss Shannon then
recognized the dancers
who had participated in
dance for ten years or
more. Lexi Parks re-
ceived her 10-year
medal. Five students
had a star added to the
ribbons of their medals
symbolizing another
year that they had con-
tinued in dance. They
were 11 Years: Elizabeth
Lewis, Caitlin Hester, 12
Years: Ali Parks, 13

tion for their help
throughout the year
with the younger

ed award is that of

termission, the dancers
took to the stage again,
adding to the excite-
ment, one dance fea-

nal bow from the de-
lightful entertainers!
Miss Shannon would
like to thank the dancers

Flag Day celebrated by VFW


$p4 .c:1qA# pI L"
fl1m:, A',~BL~~~iiiiiiii~~~~~~~


The audience listens to Post Commander Royals' talk about the meaning of the American flag.


Submitted by Cecil Davis
The members of VFW Post 8095 cel-
ebrated Flag Day on June 14th by host-
ing a flag-disposal ceremony and
demonstration followed by a fish fry
for the community. Widows and wid-
owers of veterans were honored for
their service.
As the audience sat in the shade of a
large Live Oak tree outside the back
door of the building, Post Commander
Lamar Royals gave an informative talk
about the meaning of Flag Day and of
the stars and stripes of the flag. "The 13
stars on the field of blue represent the
original 13 colonies which rallied
around the new flag as they fought
against the British for self-gover-
nance," he said. Why red, white and
blue? To the original members of the


Continental Congress, red stood for
hardiness and courage. "Today we say
red signifies the courage and sacrifices
of America's defenders," Royals point-
ed out. George Washington described
the white in the flag as a symbol of our
desire for liberty and for purity. The
blue has been likened to the vigilance,
loyalty, and unity of our citizens. The
audience was encouraged to go home
and fly their flags, not just on Flag Day
but every day.
Following the talk, Royals and Se-
nior Vice Commander Billy Jackson
demonstrated the correct procedure
for disposing of worn-out flags. At the
end of the demonstration a very mov-
ing "TAPS" was played by Pastor
Roger Hutto. Everyone adjourned in-
side for the fish fry.


FWC provides hurricane-

season tips for boat owners


Submitted

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-

al hurricane season.
"In Florida, we are very concerned
about the potential impacts on our wa-
terways following a natural disaster,
both environmental and related to
navigation," said Phil Horning, FWC
Derelict Vessel Program Administra-
tor. "Now is the time for vessel owners
to get prepared for the worst."
NOAA forecasters predict 12 to 18
named storms in the Atlantic basin, in-
cluding three to six major hurricanes
(winds of 111 mph or higher). Since
boat owners are responsible for their
vessels before and after a storm, they
should secure their boats properly if a
storm is heading their way.
"Planning ahead and preparing for
storms is the key to minimizing dam-
age, loss and legal liability," said Capt.
Richard Moore, of the FWC's Boating
and Waterways Section.
Repairing vessel damage and secur-


ing a vessel properly can help prevent
further problems during a storm.
"Improperly secured vessels can be
dangerous in severe weather," Horn-
ing said.
The FWC encourages boat owners to
discuss their options with local mari-
nas and city- and county-operated
mooring fields. Marine equipment
vendors can also provide suggestions
on proper equipment that can with-
stand wind and waves during a storm.
The FWC maintains a statewide
derelict vessel database that is used by
FWC officers and other law enforce-
ment partners to document locations
and information about derelict vessels
throughout the state.
"Part of our mission is to document
the state's pre-hurricane derelict vessel
condition," Horning said. "That way,
state, county and local law enforce-
ment agencies can be reimbursed by
federal funding for post-hurricane
derelict vessel damage and cleanup
costs."
The FWC is also working to imple-
ment a post-disaster assessment team
that would go into areas hit by a storm
to quickly document storm-related
vessel damage.
