FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Following are .some questions on
the lips of county residents who
daily are having to pay more and
more for gasoline, no matter where
they go.
Why are gasoline prices going up
so quickly?
Why the differences, of up to 29
cents per gallon in stations that are
only blocks away?
Why the signs advertising two
grades of gasoline for the same
price?
Why the much lower gasoline
prices along the. Interstate, tradi-
tionally 10 cents higher than in city
stations?
And why are gasoline prices sud-
denly more expensive in Georgia,
which historically has averaged ten
cents per gallon cheaper?
In order to get answers to these
questions, the News called numer-


ous suppliers in the community Fri-
day. By press time, however, only
one individual had responded. And
this person would only speak on
condition of anonymity.
Following are some of his expla-
nations.
Prices are only raised for con-
sumers when it is raised for the
suppliers. Legally, in fact, prices
can not be charged to the consumer
unless they have been raised to the
supplier.
"It all depends on the supplier,"
the source said. "Some have been
wiped out by Hurricane Katrina.
There is one major refinery of
Chevron in Mississippi that has
been totally wiped out. Also, five
or six refineries in the Gulf have
been wiped out, and they are 100
percent out of everything east of
h e Mississippi.
Everything depends on supply
and demand, the source said. He
said some suppliers hadn't seen a
price increase in two days and then

School Supt. Explains

Decision To Enroll
eo m 1 IIsmInWl Pm 4la


on I in Priivc

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer
School Superintendent Phil-
Barker understands that for those in
the public arena, every action carries
political consequences, to one de-
gree or another.
But he chooses to put fatherhood
above political considerations, he
says.

'I'll be a
superintendent
once, but a father

forever.9
Supt. Phil Barker

"I'll be a superintendent one time,"
Barker says, "but I'll be a father and
a dad forever."
That is essentially Barker's re-
sponse to those who criticize his de-
cision to enroll his first-grade son at
Aucilla Christian Academy (ACA)
at a time when enrollment in the
public school system continues de-
clining.
Critics charge that Barker's ac-
tion sends the wrong message, rein-
forcing the generally held
perception among many in the com-
munity that the school district is
failing.
It also, they charge, undermines
the morale of the teachers, adminis-
trators and students who are doing
their level best to counter the pre-
vailing attitude.
Barker understands the concerns.
But he holds that his decision is a
family matter, separate and apart
from his official capacity as school
superintendent.
Barker said he and his wife,


ILe sllUUl I
Cathy (a first-grade teacher at Jef-
ferson Elementary School) dis-
cussed the matter and made their
decision based on what was in the
'best interest of their son.
"Cathy and I want our son to at-
tend a school that reinforces the
Christian values that we teach him
at home," Barker said. "Unfortu-
nately, by law, public schools can't
do that. At ACA, they instill the
power of prayer and good Christian
living."
Why not enroll him in a Catholic
school in Tallahassee, being that the
family is Catholic?
The reason, Barker said, is that he
and Cathy want to keep their son' as
close to home as possible.
Did he appreciate the potential po-
litical consequences of his decision?,
"As long as I'm superintendent,
every decision that I've made and
that I will make, I've never made a
decision based on how it will affect
me politically," Barker said. "I make
decisions based on the best interest
of the kids in the community...
"I don't weigh political conse-
quences because I don't make deci-
sions based on political
considerations. I'll be a superinten-
dent one time, but I'll be a father
forever. I didn't lose a bit of sleep
over the decision."
Barker said he hag been ap-
proached by some in the community
who have warned him of the dire
political consequences of his deci-
sion. But again, politics don't enter
the equation, he said.
"I've never made decisions based
on whether it will help me politi-
cally or not," Barker reiterated. "I'm
not that smart to make decisions like
that. I make decisions based on the
best interest of the kids. You're a su-
perintendent one time in your life,
but you're a father and a dad
forever."

Commissioners Approve


Animal Control Program


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer
The county now has an animal
control program -- one narrowly ap-
proved by a 3-2 vote of the County
Commission on Thursday.
The sticking point -- a carryover
from the earlier workshop on the is-
sue -- was whether Solid Waste Di-
rector Beth Thorne, who will
administer the program, should be
included in the animal control certi-
fication training.
Commissioner Junior Tuten and
Eugene Hall argued that to train
Thorne constituted a waste of tax-
payers' money, given that she was
not physically to capture dangerous
animals.


tor not being involved in the picking
up of dogs," said Tuten, reiterating
his earlier argument. "And if we
_don't expect her to pick up dogs, we
don't need to pay money for the
training. I can't support this if our
director is going to be involved in
picking up dogs."
Commissioners Skeet Joyner,
Danny Monroe and Jerry Sutphin
were of the opinion that absent the
training, Thorne could not perform
an adequate enough job of adminis-
tering the program.
"In my opinion, she needs to have
the ability and knowledge to know
what is specifically being asked of
her employees," Sutphin said.
Monroe concurred;
"A person in charge has to know
what their people are doing," Mon-


"I'm still adamant about our direc- roe said. "I think she needs to know


.what her employees are supposed to
do. I think we need to leave it up to
Beth's discretion to decide if she's
going to catch dogs."
Joyner was of the same opinion.
"I certainly respect Commissioner
Tuten's opinion," Joyner said. "But I
have always believed that you can't
go wrong educating your people.
And I don't think it's a waste of tax-
payers' money to train the director."
Thorne herself expressed an un-
willingness to undertake the pro:
gram, if she couldn't receive the
training.
"No disrespect," she said, address-
ing the board. "But if I can't go to
learn the regulations, I'd like to re-
nege on my offer. I can't reprimand
an employee if I can't attend the
course."

Kim urricBanehill Off To Aid

Hurricane Relief Effort


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Following the destruction and af-_
Atermath of Hurricane Katrina, Jef-
'ferson County Health Department
0Director Kim Barnhill's services
have again been requested in the
,hurricane relief efforts.
SWhen contacted Wednesday after-
Poon, Barnhill responded, "We're
'on our way now, red light flashing.
"We have several RV's with us
that were rented by the State Health
Office," said Bamhill. However,
she said that she brought with her a
sleeping bag and tent because that
would be where she would be
sleeping.
Barnhill said that responding to
the disaster this time, will be much
different from what it was on the
several, occasions last year when
she was called into action in Flor-
ida.
"When we're called within the
state, I knew the state resources
from which to draw," said Barnhill.
'"But by being out of state, I don't
have an exact knowledge of who
will be playing what role."
She added that she knew that the
conditions of this hurricane would
be much worse than those which
slammed Florida last year.

Gas Prices Fluctuate

they got a 12 cent increase on die-
el Friday morning.
: "If the local supplier gets the fuel
from Bainbridge where it is
refined, it's much less than in Jack-
sonville, which has to send its
product to Belgium to be refined
because they do not have enough
refineries," the source said.
'He pointed out that if Bainbridge
ran out of gas and local suppliers
had to go through Jacksonville to
get their fuel, it would greatly in-
crease the price the local supplier
had to pay per load (9,200 gallons).
"It can change from $22,000 or.
$23,000 per load to as much -as
$27,00,0 or.$28,000 per load," the
source said.
He explained that local suppliers
have to pay for loads on delivery.
Meaning that if they put 3,000 gal-
lons of fuel in an 8,000 tank that al-
ready contains 5,000 gallons, the
supplier has to make up the differ-
ence in the price increase. And it
can't be done on only that small
quantity of gas, he said.
"It is not illegal to put 3,000 gal-
lons in with 5,000 that is less ex-
pensive and charge the public the


price you paid for the 3,000 gallons
for the entire 8,000 gallons, but it is
unethical and against God," the
source said.
Another important factor in the in-
crease in gasoline price is the three
percent service fee charged by the
(See Gas Page 3)


including Pascagula and Gulf Port
Counties."
Barnhill said they would be ad-'
justing the needs of hospitals, nurs--
ing homes and assisted living areas,
making sure that the medical infra-
structure is sound.
"We're basically an assessment
team," she added. "We may be
calling upon the 'rest of the state of
Florida to bring in teams of
doctors, nurses, and equipment.
Barnhill said that she and her
team will be on the scenes for ap-
proximately 10-14 days and upon
arrival back in the county, she will
-update residents on what she ob-


served.
Last year, after Hurricane Charlie
struck, her services were needed in
Alachua County.
The team's mission was to check
on special needs shelters for pa-
tients with Alzheimer's, on
dialysis, breathing machines, and
the like.
They worked 16 hour days assist-
ing all nursing homes and assisted
living facilities, assuring that they
had plenty of food, ice, ,water and
power.
Several days after returning
home, Barnhill received a call from
Brevard County asking for her as-
sistance in response to Hurricane
Frances. She stayed for seven
days, helping to keep hospitals op-
erational, and in obtaining genera-
tors for the lift stations to keep the
waste water and water treatment
systems running.
Approximately one week after re-
turning home, she was called by
Escambia County, shortly before
Hurricane Ivan was expected to hit.
She worked with Federal Emer-
gency Management Assistance
(FEMA) and the State Emergency
Response Teams and the hospitals.
Shortly after returning home,
Hurricane Jeanne and gone through
St. Lucie, Brevard and Indian
River, and again, Barnhill's assis-
tance was needed.
She was dispatched to the Bare-
foot Bay Community, which had
been hardest hit by Hurricane Fran-
ces.,
Following all of the requests for
assistance throughout the state last
year, Barnhill said, "I still don't
feel a sense of satisfaction, There's
so much need, that you don't ever
feel like you've done enough."

Capital City Bank Group, Inc. has
been named to the elite list of Divi-
dend Achievers for 2005 by Mer-
gent, Inc.
The Monticello office opened in
1979.
Mergent develops and maintains
the Dividend Achievers Indexes, a
unique class of companies that has
historically outperformed the overall
market and helped to boost portfolio
returns over the long term.
The annual list of Dividend
Achievers, compiled by Mergent is
made up of companies that have in-
creased their regular annual divi-
dends every year for the past 10
years or longer, and have met cer-
tain additional financial criteria.
Such companies tend to have
strong cash flows, solid balance
sheets and the potential for long
term out performance.
Among the US equity markets,
NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX,
there are only 314 publicly listed
companies that meet these stringent
requirements qualifying them as
Dividend Achievers for 2005.
This represents less than 3 percent
of the approximately 15,000 stocks
listed on these markets and moni-
tored by Mergent.
Investors tend to see dividends as
an important component of a stocks'
total return, providing a steady
stream of income, in addition, to
price appreciation.
In an up and down market, inves-
tors are continuously searching for

credit card companies on every gal-
lon sold, according to the source.
"If we only make five cents per
gallon and our cost goes up 10
cents per gallon, we take a five cent
per gallon loss, plus we have to pay
the three percent credit card service
charge, so we're not making any-
thing to sell it," he said.
He maintained that the small
service stations haven't made a
profit on gasoline for years;
"It's all supply and demand," he
said. "The prices are determined by
Wall Street, where the gas is re-
fined, and the credit card compa-
nies. So it's not the local suppliers
that are making the money on the
gas sales."
As for reason gas is less expen-
sive at the Interstate than in town,
,it's because some stations go
through a load every two days,
thereby buying the gasoline at
prices lower than what is available
to those stations that fill their tanks
two days later. That, according to
the source, accounts for the differ-
ence in prices by as much as 36
cents per gallon.

Opinion & Comment_




Officer' Became Town Legend


Let me introduce you to Officer
Mac, one of a dozen policemen on a
small town force. I'm not sure how
Mac got to be a police officer in the
first place 'cause he had trouble
with the simplest things, like
driving, climbing stairs, and filling
out reports.
Mac was an accident looking for a
place to happen but everybody liked
him. Why wouldn't they? Mac al-
ways had a smile and nice words for
everybody. Kids loved to tag along
with him when he walked his beat
twirling his night stick as he walked.
Merchants liked Mac because he
passed by their stores regularly. On
especially hot days he would stroll
through stores to cool off, greeting
everyone 'with a smile and' tipping
his hat to the ladies.
Everyone knew Mac was not the
officer you wanted on hand in an
emergency. For such times you
wanted a real police officer.
I suspect Mac knew that too but
his cheerful demeanor belied any
feelings of inferiority he might have
had.
The police chief wisely put Mac in
places where he wouldn't embarrass
himself or the department.
Once there was a double murder
and the scene was crawling with of-


Publisher's

Notebook



-.ol,-,


ficers. Mac was not on the scene be-
cause he was posted two miles down
the road waving his red flashing
light to slow down traffic.
See what I mean about'the'poliTce
chief being a smart guy?
He also knew firing Mac wasn't a
good idea since everybody liked the
bumbling officer.
For better or worse, Mac was on
the force for the duration. The chief
used his other officers to solve
crime and make arrests.
He didn't drive a police vehicle
because he was too accident'prone.
Like I said earlier, the chief was
pretty clever.
By now you are wondering if Mac
ever had a bright shining moment in


'it


his law enforcement career. Yes, he
did. Oh, yes! I tell you his moment
was so bright that people talked
about it for years!
Here's what happened.
It was a Sunday morning and the
officers who normally handled traf-
fic duties at a major intersection
with heavy church traffic were
pulled off the street and dispatched
to an emergency situation.
The only person left to handle
traffic duty was Officer Mac.
People who saw him that Sunday
morning said he stood a little more
erect than usual. They said his
shoulders were squared as he waved
cars ahead and blew his whistle to
stop others. Mac was finally in


charge of something.
Motorists rolled down their win-
dows to call out greetings to Mac.
He'd nod in response with his arms
moving traffic forward.
Everything went pretty well for
the first 30 minutes or so after the
churches let out. After that, traffic
started getting snarled.
People who traveled these streets
every Sunday were trying to figure
out what was happening.
Bumbling Office Mac had done it
again. He had created chaos out of
the Sunday morning traffic flow.
Motorists were frustrated and Mac
was beside himself trying to unsnarl
things.
He was waving his hands frantic-
ally as though that would solve the
problem. He pointed to a car and
motioned it 'forward. The driver
hesitated. Mac bellowed "c'mon,
c'mon" and the driver inched for-
ward. "C'mon, c'mon," Mac
screamed.
The driver nudged his accelerator,
ran over Mac's toes and never
looked back.
Mac howled in pain and hobbled
down the street. He was now part of
that town's lore and the story of
how he insisted a motorist drive
over Mac's toes is legend!"


Home Equity Is Real Asset


A growing number of older
Americans are tapping into the valu-
able equity in their homes through
an increasingly popular retirement
product that allows them to maintain
or enhance their existing standard 6f
living and remain in their homes for
as long as they wish.
A reverse mortgage enables seni-
iors to borrow against the equity in
their home without repaying the
debt for as long as they live there.
That's the "reverse" part of this kind
of mortgage loan.
Instead of making monthly pay-
ments, you can opt to receive them.
Senior homeowners can use the
funds anyway they wish, including
paying for long-term care insurance,
home repairs or even a vacation. ,
"It's exactly as the name implies,"
said Jeff Taylor, vice president,

Products Group. "You worked hard
to own your home and now it is time
to make your home work for, you."
As an example, Taylor described a
customer who was about to lose her
home. Getting a reverse was the an-
swer.
With the woman's husband in a
nursing home and his Social Secu-
rity check diverted to pay for his
skilled care, the 75-year-old woman
had no money to pay the mortgage
on their house.
In addition, she had significant
debt because she was using credit
cards to pay for basic needs such as
food and health care. Her reverse
mortgage gave her enough money to
pay off most of her bills, including
her house payment. In addition, she
gained immense peace bf mind be-
cause it eliminated a lot of financial
stress.


Eligibility for a reverse mortgage
depends on two factors: age and
home ownership. No income re-
quirement exists and credit history is
not considered. Reverse mortgages
are for the homeowners 62 and
older. The loan draws on the equity
established in the home.

"As many seniors approach retire-
ment, they begin to realize their ma-
jor asset is likely to be their home,"
Taylor said. "By the time the aver-
age person retires, they own a house
that is usually worth more than they_
paid for it." ,

When you take out a reverse mort-
gage, you are not forced to relin-
quish ownership.
You remain the owner for as long-_
as you live there and you will never
-be forced to move.


If you decide to sell or move from
your home, the outstanding balance
of your reverse mortgage becomes
due just as it would with a tradi-
tional mortgage.
Unlike a traditional mortgage,
however, your balance can never ex-
ceed the value of your home when
you sell it.
The maximum loan amount for a
reverse mortgage is based primarily
on four factors: the age of the
youngest borrower, the location and-
value of the home and the current
interest rate.
You must occupy the home as
your principal residence for a major-
ity of the year. The property must be
a single-family or two-to-four unit
dwelling. Town homes, detached
-homes, condominium units, planned
unit developments and some manu-
factured homes are eligible.

ment of the pain and symptoms after
it has been determined there is no

When an individual is diagnosed
-with terminal illness, often they do
.not know what to do, or where to
turn. It is a time of confusion, even
denial.
The patient and family put off tak-
ing care of that all-important area,
end-of-life-care -- care which ex-
tends from diagnosis to the jour-
ney's end.
It doesn't need to be a time of
confusion or desperation. There is a
team of professionals experienced in
helping those with life-limiting ill-
ness complete life's journey with


comfort, dignity and in a manner the
patient desires.
Big Bend Hospice's team is a
team of professionals assigned to
help you and your loved ones obtain
physical, mental and spiritual prepa-

Seeking help early in the diagnosis
allows your Big Bend Hospice
medical team to provide the most
help. The team includes your doctor
and the Big Bend Hospice Medical
Director, nurse, family support
counselor and home health aid, to
establish a plan of care that will
meet patient needs in all of the ill-

Delay in seeking palliative care
limits the amount of care and com-

ny of the
shelter,


Joyner stated the obvious.
"We're certainly divided here," he
said.
But he felt the differences were
minor, given the board's consensus
on the importance of implementing
some form of animal control pro-
gram.
"This is going to grow," Tuten
warned of the animal control pro-
gram. "The increase in numbers is
going to be dramatic. It's going to
grow by leaps and; bounds, and so
we're adding to the workload of an-
other department head.
"Every department head that we
bogged down and overloaded 'we
don't have anymore. I'm trying to
avoid that happening again. If she's
not doing the job, I don't think she
needs the training."
The plan calls for the training of
three county employees;-- including
Thorne-- in animal control. The pro-
gram will address only dangerous
animals.
Once a complaint is made and a'
deputy determines that an animal is
dangerous, one of the trained em-
ployees will' capture the animal and
transport it to the appropriate facil-
ity.
After five days, if no one claims
the animal, it will be euthanized.

on his seventh tour of duty, which-
will be at Herbert Air Field in Fort
Walton Beach, at Special Opera-
tions Command. He estimates that
he will either be going into fire pre-
vention or be the assistant chief of
fire protection.
Blake said the reason behind en-
listing for a seventh tour. of duty
was, "I'm close to retirement, just
five more years," he said. "I love
the Air Force, and I love the United
States.'
Blake is currently earning his
Bachelor's degree in psychology,
-through Liberty University, after-
which he intends to obtain his Mas-
ter's Degree.
Blake said his plans after retire-
ment could lead him into either be-
ing a counselor somewhere, or-
even possibly a job as a fire chief.
"Wherever God leads me," ,he
added.
Blake has been deployed five
times, returned approximately one
and a half years ago after serving in
Afghanistan for five and a half
months.

While there,.Blake served in sup-_
,port of special operations.
"While we were there, we had
two major explosions, which took
out a couple of square blocks," said
Blake. ""We were escorted by an
Army task force for protection and
we would go in there, caring for
wounded civilians, giving them
first aid and any needed medica-
tions, and readying them for trans-
port to Cash Surgical Base
(formerly known as a MASH
unit)."
"Mortar rounds were going off
day and night, there were the
sounds of gun fire around the
clock, and you kind of get used to
it and become immune to it," he
added.
Blake told of the biggest scare he
underwent while there. "We had a
rocket propelled grenade (RPG)
land about 500 feet in front of the
fire house and it blew off some of
the facing of the building," he said.
Blake has a wife, Cheryl, and four
sons, Cameron, Jacey, Garrett and
Micah.


Gas Prices
(Continued From Page 3)
"My pumps are locked at $2.99
per gallon," he said. "The price
will not go any higher on the pump,
so I can't charge more than that for
gas. I've already told my supplier
that if the price goes above $2.99
per gallon, don't bring me any
more gas. I can't be paying money
out of my pocket for people to buy
gas from me."
He said the same holds true for
many other stations in the area that
have the old-fashioned gas pumps.
These pumps will not allow for the
increase of the price above $2.99
per gallon. Meaning that if the
price goes higher, they will have to
shut down.
"The stations that can go higher in
the area are the ones that have the
newer computerized gas systems,"
he said. "It's sad to say, but there is
a: lot of price gouging going on
right now, no doubt about it;"

Lady Warriors To

Run In Invitational


.JFlRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
The Lady Warriors will officially
lkick off their season 10 a.m., Sept.
"'0 when they compete in ,the Lin-
coln Invitational at Tom Brown
,,ark/
-"We placed there last year. The
girls are strong and we're hoping to
- place again this year," Coach Dan
Nennstiel said.
.,-The girl's cross country team has
' 'been working hard and have been-
running at least five miles per day,
.--preparing for the season's opening.
Nennstiel said he fully expects
ya very promising season, with a
ery strong team.
"The girl's have been continuing
t6_: improve and get back into
- shgpe," he said. "They're getting
tough."
ST'He added that he has very high


expectations tfor the girls, and "I'm
sure they won't disappoint."
Nennstiel said they are going to
be facing some pretty stiff competi-
tion in the upcoming meet.
"Chiles is going to be there, and
they're one of the top five schools
and have won a couple of State
Championships," he said.
"I'll know a lot more after the
meet," Nennstiel said of the predic-
tion.
He said that they have changed a
few of the training techniques, and
that growing accustomed to them,
may slow some of the girl's season
times.
"I want us to peak at the end of
the season, when they have the dis-
tricts and state meets, rather than
peaking in mid-season," said Nenn-
stiel.
"I want us to end the season on a
winning streak."

As Fall rapidly approaches, county-
J-Hers are preparing for coming
events, such as the North Florida
Fair, 4-H School Clubs, 4-H Com-
munity Clubs, 4-H Banquet, and
. National 4-H Week.
Coordinator John Lilly reminds
' 4-H youth that it's time to re-enroll
for the coming year.
"Our goal is to surpass our previ-
ous overall 4-H enrollment from


2004-2005," he adds.
He suggests that 4-H members set
personal goals for the year.
These can be creating a 4-H pro-
ject book, presenting a demonstra-
tion, making a garment,
participating in Share-the-Fun
Events, or performing community
service.
These goals can easily be achieved
with determination and
commitment. "I guarantee that once
a goal has been accomplished you
are going to set and accomplish
more," Lilly said.

To HMS Teaches Math


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer


New to the staff at Howard Mid--
dle School this year is seventh,
eight grade math teacher Derrick
Martin, Jr.
Martin received his Bachelor's
Degree in Business Administration
from Florida A & M University,
and is certified in middle school
math for grades 5-9 and business
administration from grades 6-12.
He has worked as a K-5 teacher
in a private school called Superclub
For Kids in CT, and he has taught
before school and after school pro-
grams.
Born in Tallahassee and raised in
Atlanta, GA, he came back to the
Tallahassee area in January to go
back to school and earn his Masters
Degree.


MARTIN


"I began looking at schools in the
area, and was interviewed by Miss
Jackson and I loved the school and
the people, so I came out here to
start teaching," said Martin.
He was drawn to teaching as a
middle school student. "I began
looking at the teachers and analyz-
ing them," said Martin. "I've al-
ways had a passion for teaching
and I would always try to figure
out what I could do differently
from them to make the subject mat-
ter better."
He finds the most challenging as-
pect of the occupation to be keep-
ing up with .the different learning
technologies and making sure that
he is relaying the information to the
children in a way that they under-
stand it.
Martin finds no frustrations in the
classroom. "The staff and the kids
are great, but I do have one frustra-

Among the new faces on the fac--
ulty at Jefferson Elementary School
this year, is Tanishia Barnhart, who
is teaching K-5.
She received her Bachelor's De-
gree in Elementary Education with
an ESOL Endorsement, from Flor-
ida A & M University and is a
county native.
"I've attended all three local
public schools," she said.
This is her first teaching assign-
ment, and her motivation for teach-
ing is wanting to make a positive
impact on children at the elemen-
tary level.
"I came back to Jefferson County
so I could give back to the commu-
nity," said Barnhart. "And I feel
that being here at the elementary
level helps provide the foundation
for the future of these children.
"You need it (a proper education
and encouragement) to become
successful," she said.
Thus far, she considers her great-
est challenge is teaching at the K-5
level.
"I Interned with second graders
and every grade level is different.
But I feel teaching at this level will
also give a a greater strength."
: She added that she has no frustra-
tions in the classroom. "I'm a very
peaceful person. I find peace in all
things," said Barnhart. "You have
to find positive in all of the nega-
tive. This world is not a perfect
place and you have to find you own
peaceful spot."
Barnhart describes herself as mo-
tivated and energetic. "I love col-
laborating with other
professionals," she added. "Two
heads are better than one. You
never know what another individ-
ual will bring to the table to make a
full learning experience.
"I'm a team player, and I love
working with other people in gen-
eral," said Barnhart. "The more an
individual puts into it, the bigger
and brighter the results are."
As years pass and her students re-
member her, Barnhart wants to be
remembered as "Making a mark in-
stead of a scar."

"All can achieve and you have to
instill self-motivation," she added.
"You have to get them to feel good
about themselves so they can be
confident in both learning and eve-
rything they do."
She feels that her greatest class-
room accomplishment would be to
have all students active in learning
and benefiting from her teaching.
Barnhart considers her strong
points to be her active involvement.
and creativity. "People learn by
doing and they learn by
experience," said Barnhart. "Expe-
rience is the best teacher, and I be-
lieve in getting that done in a
creative way."
Her hobbies include reading,
shopping, visiting, and going
places.
In the future she would like to
travel.


L


tion, commuting from Tallahassee
with the current high prices of gas,"
he added.
He describes himself as being
someone who is very easy to get
along .with, very outgoing and one
who listens first to others before
making a decision, and he is a car-
ing person.
When he's thought of by his stu-
dents, he would like top be remem-
bered as someone who really taught
them something.
"I want them to feel that they
made accomplishments in my
classroom," said Martin. "If they
feel they have accomplished some-
thing, then I have done my job."
He considers his biggest class-
room accomplishment comes
when students who are having dif-
ficulty with the subject matter, be-
gin to understand, and show


- improvement in their work.
Martin says that his strong points'
are people skills. "I can talk to the
kids and they actually learn what I
want them to learn," said Martin.
"I'm closer in age to the children
that some other teachers, so they
are more open and receptive to
what I have to say."
His hobbies and activities include
recently applying at the Boys and
Girls Club to work in the after
school program.
He worked with the Habitat For
Humanity for three years while in
college, and he donates to worthy
causes, such as the Red Cross.
Martin enjoys playing basketball,
shooting pool and going to the
movies. He also plans to be the as-
sistant coach for the HMS basket-
-ball team.
