Enrollment in the district for 2005
was 1,294 students.
Projected enrollment for 2006 is
1,223, a 5.5 percent decrease, Wil-
son said. This decrease is factored
into the percentage of increased
state funds districts receive.
Conversely, he said, if enroll-
ment increases, so does the percent-
age of increased funding.
"At best, we are still left with a
$950,000 shortfall, which has to be
addressed," he stated.
In addition, Wilson said that the
step raises which normally accrue to
teachers each year, will consume the
$150,000 state increase in funding.
Reiterating his earlier explanation
of the district budget situation, Wil-
so-n samd that in FY 2005, $1.1 mil-

SAn effort to restore respect and
appreciation for the national anthem
is striking the right chord with many
The National Anthem Project, a
,multi-year effort to reteach Ameri-
can's "The Start-Spangled Banner,"
is led by the National Association
for Music Education (MENC). Mrs.
Laura Bush serves as Honorary
The- campaign launch comes on
the heels of a recent Harris Poll that
shows two out of three Americans
don't know the words to "The Star-
Spangled Banner" and many are un-
aware of the historical events that
inspired the penning of the song.
This finding prompted MENC, the
world's largest arts education asso-
ciation and the only one that ad-
dresses all facets of music
education, to spreadhead the project
and shine the spotlight on the impor-
tance of school music programs,
given that this is whereimost Ameri-
cans learn the national anthem and
others patriotic songs.
"Recent budget cuts to school mu-
sic programs have silenced our na-
tion, cutting off students from ac-
cess to learning about our country's
historical traditions," says John
Mahlmann, Executive Director,
MENC. "Music in schools provides
the platform for citizenship that
stays with us for a lifetime."
One goal of the campaign is to
change the practice of Americans
listening to a soloist perform the an-
them, particularly at special events,
and to encourage everyone to sing
the anthem together.
The nationwide initiative is sup-
ported by the Jeep brand, the pro-
ject's National Presenting Sponsor.

rooted in American traditions and
values, we are excited about the op-
portunity.to be apart.of the National

Precautions For Health,
Taking a few health precautions
when traveling could keep you from
taking an unwanted trip to the doc-
tor. That's the advice from experts
who say travelers can be at particu-
lar risk for a number of health prob-
lems. Try these tips:
Plan To Stay Healthy If you
will be traveling outside the U.S.
particularly to developing countries
in Africa, Asian and Latin America,
talk with a travel medicine specialist
before hitting the road.
The U.S. government also pro-
vides health information for people
SAsk about health conditions and
disease outbreaks in the country you
plan to visit and find out if any vac-
cinations are required before you
Watch Your Eyes- Time spent
on a plane or in the car can take its
toll on eyes, as can traveling be-
tween climates. Symptoms such as
scratchy, itchy or burning eyes due
to dry eye are not only uncomfort-
able, they can also interfere with vi-
sion and damage eye tissue if left
Dry eye can be caused by many
factors, including a dry environment
(such as a cold and windy climate,
airplane cabin or dusty room),
aging, wearing contact lenses, ciga-
rette smoke and cold or allergy
medicines and pain relievers.
It may pay to pack lubricating eye
Pack Your Pills- If you are tak-
ing medication, be sure to take
enough with you to cover an ex-
tended trip. Doctors generally rec-
ommend bringing an extra week's
Also, if you are flying, pack the
medication in your carry-on
luggage. If you are driving or flying,
be sure to keep the medication in a
place that gives you easy access.
Drink Up- Travelers often be-
come dehydrated either due to the
nature of their travels or because

BY FRANK BROGAN
.Back in late 1996, when I was.
Florida's Commissioner of Educa-
tion, it came to my attention that
there were ample federal resources
to feed the state's children in the
summer when they no longer had
access to the free and reduced price
meals they enjoyed during the
And yet, at that time, less than 14
percent of those children were par-
ticipating in the Summer Food Serv-
ice Program, and there were several
counties in which tens of thousands
of hungry children had no access at
Recognizing the important link
between year-round nutrition and
successful educational outcomes for
schoolchildren, I made increased ac-
cess to this program a priority of my
It is a rare occurrence when fund-
ing intersects need and all that re-
mains is an effective public-private
partnership to effectively apply its
'use. So we collected together the
school food service directors and
other leaders from communities
around the state in a forum to chart
the challenges of and successful
models for feeding children when
school was out.
In the first year of this effort, 14
new summer food sponsors stepped
up to help in communities around
this state, and average daily partici-
pation rates among children went up
For our efforts, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture recognized us
with a "Regional Sunshine Award,"
and the national Education Week
periodical featured Florida twice in
Since that time, the Florida De-
partment of Education has taken
other progressive steps towards in-
creasing availability of this nutri-
tional resources by serving as one of
two states to pilot the Seamless
Summer Food Waiver, a measure
designed to reduce the paperwork of
public schools that sponsor the pro-
By essentially making summer
food an extension of the National
School Lunch Program, public
schools can offer both programs
without two sets of federal forms.
Because of the successful piloting
of that program, Congress recently
opened up this option for the rest of
the states: and Florida has seen the
original three counties opting for the
Wavier grow to 36 as of last sum-
And now the DOE has worked co-
operatively with several private,
nonprofit and faith-based organiza-
tions that want to ensure that more
children have access to this impor-
tant community resource through
the Children's Summer Nutrition
proposal also known as the "Willie
Ann Glenn Act."
It provides that at least one sum-
mer food site in each district oper-
ates within five miles of a school
with 50 percent or more free and
reduced-price school meal eligibility
and stays open for 40 days of sum-
It also ensures that additional sum-
mer food sites are within 10 miles of
all elementary schools in low-
The proposal does this while en-
suring local control through an ex-
emption that school boards can
place on their agendas for public
awareness and cooperative leader-
ship strategies between public and
private community organizations.
If approved, Florida would once
again lead the nation for its innova-

Procrastination Wastes Time
Imagine a workplace where
there's always a full week's worth
of important tasks to do, but the em-
ployees can't get started until 10
Although that may sound far-
fetched, it's similar to how workers
worldwide assessed their personal
productivity in a recent online sur-
vey sponsored by Microsoft Corp.
Responses to the Microsoft Office
Personal Productivity Challenge
(PPC) from more than 38,000 peo-
ple in 200 countries showed that, on
average, workers spend about 17
hours of their typical 45-hour work
week in unproductive activities.
The top time-waster among U.S.
workers is procrastination, cited by
42 percent of respondents, followed
by lack of team communication at
39 percent and ineffective meetings
at 34 percent. Other common strug-
gles include managing e-mail and
accessing important information
while away from the office, keeping
notes and other documents organ-
ized, and prioritizing demands on
Along with these challenges, the
survey responses also showed that
technology has a strong influence on
workers' productivity. That's no

year veteran in the time-

Baker offered some suggestions
for using technology to overcome
common time-wasting activities and
be more productive:
Block unwanted e-mail by us-

Family and Consumer Sciences
Extension Agent Heidi Copeland
offers information about home food
"With the first crop of spring pro-
duce readying to be picked, ambi-
tious folks may want to consider
home food preservation for family
and friends," Copeland said.
"While canning might be the
most economical and practical
method of home food preservation,
especially when there is a large
amount of food to be preserved,
freezing foods at home is quick and
In addition, drying foods at home
produces a stable shelf product that
takes up little storage space."
Cost factors to consider while
pondering whether to preserve food
include: the cost of produce, cost
of containers, both reusable and
one-time containers; cost of water
and fuel to wash, blanch, freeze,
and the like; cost of added ingredi-
ents such as sugar, spices, anti dis-
coloration treatments; and the cost
of equipment, including a canner,
freezer or dehydration device.
"There is no one best economical
and practical choice when it comes
to food preservation," said Cope-
The decision should be based on
the family's preference for foods
"However, consideration should
also be given to the particular food
and the amount of food to be pre-
served and stored. If you only have
a small amount of food, freezing
might be your best option," said

Tigers Split 2 Of

After splitting their last four
games, the Tigers stand at 7-7 sea-
The game against Melody Chris-
tian was chalked up as a win by
forfeit for the Tigers.
When they faced off against
Branford the Tigers finished with
an 11-7 loss.
Coach Alfreddie Hightower said
that though they lost, some good
things did happen for the Tigers.
Thomas Lyles smashed out a
three-run home run; Markyce Larry
hit two doubles; and Scottie Norton
and Clark Latson each hit one dou-
Alex Pitts pitched the game,
striking out two batters, giving up
nine hits, three walks.
Hightower said the game was a
7:30 p.m. start and the Tigers hit
very well in the first and second in-
ning, but when the lights came on
in the third, it apparently threw
them off kilter.
"We played worse with the lights
and they seemed to be playing bet-
ter with them," said Hightower.
"We didn't have a lot of errors. It
was a pretty decent game, but we
just came up on the short end."
Hamilton County clobbered the
"We only had two errors, they
flat-out earned the runs," said
Hightower. "We kept hitting lazy
fly balls and they had a good out-
fielder who wasn't dropping them."
The Tigers only connected with
the ball twice, singles from Latson
and Alex Lingle.
Monday night, the Tigers came
out of the first round of the district
championship with a 4-0 win over

singles and scored one run.

$1,200, including having volunteer
auxiliary officers from Leon County
and Sheriffs Department deputies
assume some of law enforcement
Meanwhile, the committee pre-
sented a request that Frisby provide
a breakdown of the $1,200, showing
exactly how the money was being
Frisby took issue with the request,
saying that such an analysis had
been available all along. He recom-
mended against issuing the permit,
if the waterinelon committee refused
to pay the $1,200.
"We haven't let others do this,"
Frisby said, referring to the recent
'brouhaha over the coming Emanci-
pation Day celebration.
Police supervision for that event
was assured only in the Ilth hour,
when the Jefferson County Republi-
can Party stepped forward and of-
fered to ante up the $500 needed for
the police overtime.
Betsy Gray, chairperson of the
Watermelon Festival Committee,
apologized for her ignorance of the
recently dran regulations affecting
parades and street closings.
Her point, she: said, was that the
Watermelon Festival Committee
could ill afford to pay $1,200, given
the liability insurance and other ex-
penses it was required to pay.
She wondered why volunteer
auxiliary officers from Leon County
or deputies from the Sheriffs De-
partment here couldn't take over
some of the duties.
"Sheriff David Hobbs said he was
willing to supply eight or 10 depu-
ties," Gray said. "We are facing a
real strained budget because we're
having to pay for liability and other
things. We had no crowd control
last year. We had civilians trying to
control the situation and it wasn't
working. We are concerned with
more than just the road closing. We
want to utilize all resources so that
we can maximize our budget."
Frisby responded that sheriffs
deputies had provided assistance in
the past and that the assistance was
appreciated. But he doubted that the
Sheriffs Department was going to
substitute deputies for police and do
it at no cost.
"If David wants to replace the po-
lice officers with deputies, that's
news to me," Frisby said.
Councilman Luther Pickles offered
that it would be difficult to overturn
the parade rules and regulations, es-
pecially since the council had
drafted these after much considera-
"We need to be strict," Council-
man Brian Hayes said in support.
Both he and Pickles expressed, a
willing to contribute toward the
needed $1,200; as did City Attorney
The councilmen's advice to Gray
was that she seek contributions from
the community to pay the $1,200.
They were sure the contributions
would be forthcoming, they said.
With that the council adopted the
rules and regulations that had been
under consideration since several
