Three Miore Candidates

Pre-Oualify For Offices

Senior Staff Writer

Six-year-old first-time go-
kart driver Lea Holden listened
attentively Saturday as the of-
ficial at the newly-opened
Monticello Karting and Motor
Club racetrack off Big Joe
Road explained the rules of the
coming competition.
Holden, of Ft. Lauderdale,
FL, was one of three children
racing in the 50 cc category,
and one of 40 to 45 drivers -
mostly from south Florida --
competing in the upper cate-
gory races.
The first lap around the track
was to be a parade lap, the of-
ficial explained to Lea and the
two other youngsters. Meaning
that the young drivers were to
keep their positions and not try
to pass each other.
Once the checkered flag offi-
cial by the side of the track
gave the signal at the end of
the first lap, the racers were
free to accelerate and jockey
for position.
But they were not to bump
each other's go-karts, the offi-
cial cautioned.
"No bumping, do you under-
stand?" he said, pointing to
each youngster in turn and
waiting for a nod. "You don't
bump him, he doesn't bump
you, and' you don't bump her."
Satisfied the young drivers
understood the rules, the offi-
cial told them to have fun,
wished them luck, and allowed
them to proceed with their go-
karts onto the racetrack.
Moments later, the 50 cc
race was on, with the small,
ground-hugging go-karts spin-
ning around the track and the
respective parents cheering on
their young drivers.
Indeed, any doubts about the
viability of the Monticello

Karting and Motor Club were
dispelled this past weekend,
with the facility holding its
ribbon-cutting ceremony and
hosting the season opener for
the Montoya Cup -- a series of
six competitions scheduled
across the state.

like this," said an ebullient

said. But in this case, the two
matched perfectly, he said.
A native of Columbia, Mont-
toya started go-karting at a
very early age and is credited
with bringing the easykart con-
cept to America. He is CEO of
the Miami-based Easykart
America, which cosponsored
Saturday and Sunday's compe-
titions in conjunction with Red
Bull Energy drink.
Wandering among the many
drivers and their families on
Saturday, one got a sense of

Courrejes. "This is both
nerve wracking and exhilarat-
ing. The feedback is great."
He added that the facility
will soon be offering go-kart
driving classes once a month.
Federico Montoya -- son of
Juan Pablo Montoya, the for-
mer Indy 500 champion and
designer of the Monticello
track -- will teach the classes.
The elder Montoya, who at-
tended the weekend's events,
expressed satisfaction with the
way the racetrack turned out.

What pre-qualifying does it
allow candidates to jump start
their campaigns by allowing
them to open campaign ac-
counts, begin spending on po-
litical advertisements, and
start collecting the necessary
number of signatures to get on
the ballot.
Absent the collection of sig-
natures, the alternative is to
pay the registration fee, which
is equal to one percent of the
salary paid by ,the particular
office the candidate is seeking.

Salomon Bendayan, chief
operating officer of EasyKart
America, explained that the
races were divided into four
categories: 50 cc, for drivers
under age eight; 60 cc, for
drivers ages 8 through 12; 100
cc, for drivers 12 through 15
years of age; and 125, for driv-
ers 15 and up, with the latter
category further divided into
light and heavy weight classes.
Drivers in the different cate-
gories earn points each race,
with the drivers accumulating
the highest scores at the end of
the season being eligible for
the national championship.
The winners at this level get a
free trip to Italy, where they
get to compete in the world
go-kart races.

The rally will take place on
the grounds of the Sardis

cated on SR-259 (Waukeenah

meals to bikers who rally

Visitors from Madison,

masville viewed the show
which spanned three days.
Many of the Designs were
displayed at the Wirick-
Simmons House during the
Tour of Homes, held by the
County Historical Association.
The show was dedicated in
memory of Mary Sue Reed,
who was Second Vice Presi-
dent, Monticello Garden Club.
Her family and friends at-

Canada and South America
here," Bendayan said.
And based on what the driv-
ers were telling him, they con-
sidered the Monticello facility
a world-class track, he said.
"This is that caliber of a
track," Bendayan said.
In fact, a very good possibil-
ity existed that the track even-
tually would host a national
championship, he said.
The next big event scheduled
at the Monticello Karting and
Motor Club is July 28-30,
when it hosts the fifth of the
six races in the Montoya Cup
Expectations are that more
area go-kart enthusiasts will
participate in the competitive
events as word of the facility

nesses, churches and commu-
nity that meals and entertain-
ment are free to bikers.
The meal will include barbe-
cue chicken, baked beans,
cole slaw, potato salad, bread,
beverage and dessert.
Both biker and Christian
musical groups are scheduled
to provide afternoon enter-
tainment, jamming a little bit
of everything from Blue
Grass, Country, Christian,
Gospel and Rock.
"From it's conception, this
event has been viewed as a lo-
cal missions outreach to com-
municate goodwill and fel-
lowship to a broad-based
community," said Munroe.
"The beauty and takeaway
from a venue of this type is to
showcase the fellowship be-
tween bikers and non-bikers
as a celebration of life."
Churches joined in this
event include: Lloyd UMC,
Sardis UMC, Mt. Lebanon at
Lament UMC, Wacissa UMC
and Waukeenah UMC.
Bikers participating include:
Spirit Riders Motorcycle Min-
istries, Christian Motorcycle
Association and Spirit Riders
Motorcycle Ministries.
Monroe concluded that a
show of appreciation was due
to the many churches and
businesses, who through their
contributions, helped make
last year's rally a tremendous
success. "We could not have
done it without you."

The Show was organized by
Linda Demott, chairman of the
Magnolia Circle.

Opinion & Comment

Did you know that 80 per-
cent of what we learn comes
through our eyes? Good eye-
sight is essential for a. child's
development, and poor vision
can lead to a variety of serious
problems--.from learning dis-
abilities to behavior issues.
Your eyes are the windows
to our fascinating world, so it
is critical to take care of them
during every stage of life.
Studies show, however, that
few parents realize profes-
sional recommendations call
for a child's first eye exam at
the age of six months, with
complete exams at ages 3, 5
and every two years thereafter.
Children should receive an
eye exam by an eye doctor
who can detect vision prob-
lems and underlying eye-
related health concerns of you.
Children often wear prptsec-,
tive pads when playing sports,
but little emphasis is placed on
protecting the eyes.
Children are especially at
risk for sports-related injuries--
in fact, more than 41 percent
of all such injuries take place
among athletes younger than
15. To avoid eye injuries, ath-
letes should war protective
polycarbonate eyeglasses with
a one-piece frame.
Certain foods help keep eyes
in their prime, so load up on
fruits and vegetables, which
have lots of vitamins.


I'm sometimes asked, if I-
think the fight for morality in
culture is all over but the
shouting. I'm usually asked
this by people disturbed by the
juggernaut promoting gay
rights, which has won a few
battles in the United States and
seems to have won the war in
I'm asked this by people
who grieve for the lives lost to
Roe v. Wade, who are per-
plexed by why anyone would
be threatened by the Ten Com-
mandments on a rock in a
courtyard, or who simply won-
der why the idea of allowing
science teachers to mention In-
telligent Design is such a po-
litical hot potato.
I'm asked if the fight for cul-
ture is over by people peeved
at others who want to take
"God" out of the Pledge of Al-
legiance. These folks are par-
ticularly incensed by individu-
als who try to de-Christianize
Christmas, like Boston's 2005
idea of changing their Christ-
mas tree to a Holiday tree.
This late anecdote illustrates
the fight isn't over. Boston's
leadership got so much nega-
tive reaction the Mayor had to
retreat and say, "It's a Christ-
mas tree."
The culture wars have not

\\ilole grains are rich in vita-
mins and minerals. Omege-3
fats in fish and zinc in meats,
Seafood, milk and other dairy
products are all believed to be
nourishing for the eyes.
Sunglasses do more than just
make you look cool.- They
provide vital protection year
around, shielding the eyes from
harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
When shopping for a pair of
shades, select glasses with
shatterproof-lenses that carry a
UV protection sticker. Also,
make sure the eyewear extends
out to the sides to block pe-
ripheral UV rays.
There's little doubt comput-
ers are second nature to chil-
dren and teenagers, but

excessive use can lead to com-
puter vision syndrome (CVS)
which' causes blurred vision

To help prevent CVS, VSP
recommends that parents limit
their child's time on the com-
puter to 30 minutes per day for
children under 10 and no more
than two hours per day for
children ages 10-15, use an
anti glare filter, and position
the computer screen 24 inches
from the child's face and at an
angle, so the youngster is look-
ing down slightly.

steps, starting with regular eye
exams, you will provide your

we hired him.

I told him we found his pa-

an explanation. He smiled and
said, "You know I really

meant to deliver those papers
but I wanted to see my girl too.
Unfortunately, he said, your

I suggested to Dennis it
would be best if he looked for
work elsewhere and: he.
nodded. "If you need me, call
me. I'm pretty good at this,"
he said. I didn't want to but :1
couldn't help smiling.
Dennis was a free spirit and
so was Mike.
Mike worked in the retail ad
department as a salesman. He
could get a little weird at times
but nothing major.
One night after dinner I was
heading back to the office and
from a block away could see
little fires in the parking lot.

When I drove up in front of
our newspaper building I could
see 20 or more waste baskets
on fire. They were carefully
placed in a line with equal dis-
tance between them.

see what somebody could tell
me about the waste baskets
and found Mike sitting at the
receptionist's desk with a big

I asked him why he did that
and he shrugged: and said,

About that time a city police-
man opened the front door and

parking lot.
Yes I do, I told him. And
this man set them on fire.
Mike was still grinning. "Take
him out of here," I-told the of-
Mike got up to go with the
policeman and took a long
look at me and said "You got
no sense of humor, Cichon."

Let Generals Win Wars


I have been struggling witl--
what has become my "fluid'
concept of the war in Iraq. In
so doing, I realized that there
was one constant thread run-
ning through all of America's
armed conflicts that seems to
derail what would otherwise be
a total success.
During most of WWII, the
conduct of the war was left to
the "experts", that being the
well trained general officers
and commanders of our armed
It wasn't until near the end
of the.conflict in Europe that
civilians and not tacticians
usurped our brilliant Generals
and began making the strate-
gic decisions.
In the case of WWII, it was
President Roosevelt (the Com-

mander in Chief) who in-
structed General Eisenhower
to allow the Russians to take
the "prize"- Berlin.
SNeedless to say, the likes of
Generals Patton and Bradley
were livid that the ultimate re-
Sward for the sacrifices of our
fighting men would be denied.
SRoosevelt's simple explanation
to Eisenhower was "Don't
worry Ike, I can handle old
Joe", (Reference to Joseph
Stalin the dictator of Russia).
The world now knows the
Consequences of that errant de-
cision that resulted in the Ber-
lin Airlift, the "Wall", the
"Iron Curtain" and years of the
,Cold War in Europe. General
Patton (and I suspect many
others) knew we had the
forces, supplies and assets
available in Europe to also end
the Soviet threat by driving
them back to Bolshevik land.
'Unfortunately, Patton was se-

verely criticized for such radi-
cal thoughts.
In Korea, it was again the
Commander in Chief, Presi-
dent Harry Truman, and not
the brilliant tactician, General
MacArthur who again stated to
inject himself into the military
In this case, MacArthur
knew that all the Chinese had
was lots of soldiers and noth-
ing else to actually win an
armed conflict with American
and her allies. China had no
Navy or Air Force and very
poor logistical support.
MacArthur made the mistake
of suggesting to Washington
that we "Press our advance
across the Yalue River and end
the Chinese Communist threat
once and for all", Truman fired
MacArthur. The War stale-
mated. Chinese communism
flourished and we came home
-with our tail tucked between

our legs to face years of flam-
bpyant nonsense from China
and the North Korea that con-
tinues today.
While the First Gulf War
was resounding military suc-
cess under the total command
of General Norman Schwartz-
kkoph, the ugly head of the ci-
vilian experts" once again
messed up what could have
been a resounding success in
' Secretary of Defense, Dick
Chaney and his advisors con-
vinced the President George H.
W. Bush, to stop the war early
and cut short driving to Bag-
dad and eliminating the re-
gime of Saddam Hussain once
and for all. We all know the

quences of that errant political
and nontactical decision.

Brain Changes With Age

As our brains age, we're less
likely to think as quickly or re-
member things as well as we
used to. Research is now
showing how the brain
changes and adapts with age.
You can use what we've
learned and follow a few sim-
ple tips to help remember
things and avoid scams.
Dr. Denise C. Park, director
of the Royal Center for

Healthy Minds'at the Univer-
sity of Illinois, explains that
the knowledge we gain from
like experience can sometimes
compensate for other changes
in our brains as we age.
Older professionals can often
be better at their jobs than
younger ones. "Your memory
may be less efficient," Parks
says, "but your knowledge
about how do it may be

Researchers can design tests
that expose problems in the ag-
ing mind by creating tasks in
which older adults can't use
their experience. These tests
reflect real-life situations like
getting upsetting medical news
or having a crafty scam artist
pressure you for an answer.
One key to dealing with
situations like these, Park says,

is not to make rash decisions.
Ask for further information
and more time to consider.
Discuss it with friends or rela-
Perhaps the most common
trouble people face as they are

In 1925, a group of ladies
began volunteering at Arch-
bold and formed the auxiliary.
In 1951, it became the
women's auxiliary and, after
men joined in 1960, it was
named the John D. Archbold
Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
The auxiliary tea began that
same year as a fundraiser for
hospital projects and is usually
held at area plantations.
This year, Dell Watkins, who
once lived at Hollywood Plan-

and hosted the first auxiliary
tea, is traveling from Califor-

The tea is free, but donations
will be accepted.
All proceeds from the event
will go towards a cart to be
used in the hospital parking lot
for people who have trouble
walking from their vehicles to
the building, and to put new
furniture in the emergency

The Jefferson County High
School varsity baseball team
now stands 1-7 on the season
after being blanked by NFC
17-0, Tuesday.
"We got slaughtered," said
Assistant Coach,. Jim Norton.
He attributed the loss to NFC
being an outstanding team,
which had ten seniors on the
team as starters, all of them,
topnotch players, compared to
the Tigers having seven ninth
graders as starters.
"The experience does make
a big difference."
He added that the game
started' off on the wrong foot
with the first four Tiger bat-
ters being upped and quickly
downed at the plate.
The game was called after
the fifth inning due to the ten-
run rule, or as Norton referred
to it, "The mercy rule".
Though Jefferson had no

hits at the plate, Norton did
provide pitching statistics.
Patrick Cherry started in the
first on the mound, giving up
one hit and four walks, and in
the second inning, he gave up
three walks and two hits, one
of which was a grand-slam
home run.
Cherry was replaced for the
third with Amez Ammons
who gave up two walks, two
hit-by-pitch and a three run
home run.

In the middle of the third,
Ammons was replaced with
Nick Farmer on the mound,
who gave up three walks and
.two hits, one of which was a
booming triple to center field.
In the fourth, Telvin Norton
replaced Farmer on the
mound and gave up one hit,
no walks and no runs.
"By then, NFC had already
gone throuGh their first, sec-
ond, third and fourth lineups,"
Norton concluded.

Healthy Weight Loss available
only at Jackson's Drug,
Hoodiacol is designed to curb
the appetite, burn fat and
increase energy levels resulting
in considerable weight loss over
time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into
rice bran oil with natural
flavorings to give it a palpable
taste. In addition to weight loss,
you may see benefits for the
hair, skin and nails from the
Omega 3 and Omega 6 found inl
rice bran oil. Hloodia gordonii is
a cactus found in the Kalahari
Desert of South Africa.
lUnsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits
appetite but increases the sense
of satiety. This tends to limit
total caloric intake by 30-40'%
witliout experiencing hunger.
Significant weight loss should
result from such a drop inl
caloric intake.

At ACA Going Strong

Staff Writer

The Aucilla Christian Acad-
emy Relay For Life Penny
Drive and Remembrance
Hearts sale has been going so
well, coordinators have ex-
tended the closing date to
April 13.
Coordinator Kim Roccanti
said that as the events con-
tinue, the response has been
so great that coordinators
have this week begun count-
ing the change because of the
extremely high volume of

Roccaiti. "The week'of April

"It's been going extremely
well," said Roccanti. "We've
sold almost 160 Remem-
brance Hearts and had to start
a second bulletin board, and
now we have two bulletin
boards of hearts in the hall-
She added that the high
number of Remembrance
Hearts is probably attributed
to the recent loss of young
ACA student Haley
Grantham, to cancer. "Cancer
touches everyone," said Roc-
canti. "Everyone knows a
survivor or someone who had

or has cancer."
Though much counting re-
mains to be done, Roccanti
said Wednesday morning, that
thus far at the elementary
level, second, third and fourth
grade are running neck-and-
neck with the highest amounts
As of Tuesday, third graders
collected and turned in
$72.50, and fourth graders,
$70 plus another $15-16 in
At the high school level,
tenth and eleventh graders are
in the running with the high-
est amounts collected, both
presently at about $50.
"No doubt, that will
change," she added. "Two
years ago, we collected
$1,500, last year, $1,800 and
this year, I fully expect to go
over $2,000.
In past years, the Penny
Drive was conducted among
elementary school students,
but middle and high school
students wished to also be-
come involved, so this is the
first year all students are col-
lecting change.
The ACA Relay For Life

school organizations, includ-
ing the Student Council, the
Anchor Club and the Fellow-
