In front of the
Lafayette County Li-
brary there is a new
sign. It was installed in
2005. A lot of hard work
went into the project.
The sign has an open
book on both sides.
The Lafayette County
. Public Library thanks
Tony Berrington for de-
signing the sign; the lo-
cal businesses for con-
tributing materials for
building the sign; and,
the Mayo Correctional
Institution for putting
the sign together.

candidate for governor to visit all 67

saying, "When I launched my campaign, I
set a goal to visit every county because I
want to be a governor for all Floridians.
That means traveling all across the state
and meeting Floridians where they live
and work. I've met and talked with vot-

Davis visited with local community

Rita Stapleton was born
and raised in, Lafayette
County. She has lived here
all of her life. Stapleton re-
members the stories her
family told her about Old
Troy and New Troy while
growing up. She said one
of the interesting type of
stories that she remem-
bered were "ghost stories."
Stapleton gave an example:
that occurred while one in-
dividual was sitting be-
side the casket and the
body would sit up. In
those days, according to
Stapletion, they had no
way of embalming the
body, which is why the
people thought they saw
ghosts.
The Severances came
from the Carolinas and
moved to New Troy in the
late 1800s. They were one
of a number of influential
families during the exis-
tance of New Troy.


Samuel S. Severance, Sta-
pleton's grandfather, held
various positions in the com-
munity. He owned and op-
erated several business
such as the grist mill and the
general store.
Her great-grandfather,
John N. Krimminger, was
the Judge of Lafayette Coun-
t; in New Troy. Krimminger
was a Senator in the Florida
Legislature and was one of
the signers of the 1868 Flori-
da Constitution.
Stapleton also remembered
a story she was told that re-
lated to the burning of the
courthouse in New Troy. She
said that a man with a wood-
en leg overheard several peo-
ple talking about burning the
courthouse. He went into the
courthouse to gather as many
of the documents as he could.
Then he went home and hid
them in his corncrib that was
full of corn.
In 1963, Stapleton gave Bill
Hurst's fifth period high
school students a tour of the
Old Troy and New Troy
sites. She pinpointed the lo-
cation of places such as the
courthouse, jail, Krimminger
house, artesian wells, gener-
al store, and where the ferry
docked.

Reverend Charm Greene


It sure is a good feeling
when the light comes on!
Have you ever read' some
directions (maybe direc-
tions on how to program a
cell phone) and had a
problem understanding
them but all of a sudden
you said, 0, I see! You
didn't mean you saw with
your eyes but you now un-
derstood. You were frus-
trated trying to figure out
the directions and then it
came to you; it brought a
sense of happiness.
In Nehemiah 8 the lead-
ers of the people read
God's Word distinctly, and
gave the sense, and caused
them to understand the
reading (verse 8). In the
same chapter (verse 12),
you will note, the people
went away happy because
they had understood the
words that were declared
unto them. These people
had heard the Law for the
first time! Now there are
many reasons why God's
Word should bring you joy
and many of these reasons

are set forth in Psalm 119
(the first word of the Psalm
is blessed a synonym for
happy).
As a person understands
the Bible it will help him to
clean up his act; helping
him to avoid sin as he ap-
plies the Word to his life
(Psalm 119:9, 11). As your
understanding of the Word
develops you will have
many answers to questions
others will ask (Psalm
119:42 the Holy Spirit will
bring the answers to re-
membrance but you can't
remember something you
haven't studied John
14:26; II Timothy 2:15).
Knowledge of the Bible
helps you to understand
the 'why' of problems that
will come into your life
(Psalm 119:71). God's
words taken in give light
and understanding (Psalm
119:130). The more knowl-
edgeable you become of
the Word of God the more
awestruck you will be by
its contents (Psalm
119:161). And these verses
just begin to scratch the
surface of the reasons for
the joy that comes from
having an understanding
of the Scriptures:

Patrons kept up a steady flow
into the public library when it re-
opened at its new location Tues-
day, Jan. 4 after months of wait-
ing for the facility to be complet-
ed. Now, just days after the
doors were opened the $500,000
building that has been plagued
with structural issues since its
foundation was poured over two
years ago has once again had a
problem surface.
Lafayette County

Delores L. Walker
Free Press Reporter
Senator Nancy Argenziano and
Representative Dwight Stansel
shared right at two hours of dis-
cussion with several county resi-
dents at Thursday's mid-morning
delegation hearing. According to
those in attendance the meeting
was very productive with a vari-
ety of request and comments pre-
sented to the senator and repre-
sentative. The session followed
an orderly fashion with citizens
who wished to address the dele-
gation filling out an appearance
card prior to the meeting.

Saturday scam ends in
robbery for local citizens
Delores L. Walker
Free Press Reporter
Two local residents, Mrs. Ruby
Land and daughter Evelyn Koon
fell prey to a scam Saturday that
included robbery when two or
possibly three suspects used a
welcome entry into Land's home
as an opportunity to rob the two
unsuspecting ladies said Capt.
John Young, Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office (LCSO).
Commissioners
hope to recoup
back pay for county
: Governor promises help
In a letter dated Dec. 17, 2004,
Lafayette County Commissioners
received word from Florida Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush stating that the
back-pay for former sheriff De-
wayne Walker was included in
the 2005-06 proposed budget.
Walker was suspended from
his duties as Sheriff of Lafayette
County by Gov. Bush in August
2002 and \vas granted back pay in
a non-jury trial on Oct. 21, 2003.
Bush said he is recommending
$64,145 in the budget for Fiscal
Year 2005-06 to reimburse the
county h\ho had to pay the for-
mer sheriff's back pay from coun-
S ty funds. Bush said the Legisla-
ture will have to approve the rec-
onmmended appropriation in the
General Appropriations Act.

Time is running out to
post your 911 sign
fines could follow
for failure to comply
In a recently held discussion
county commissioners and Sher-
iff Carson McCall looked at the
potential problem when residents.
do not post their 911 address
numbers. This is creating several
problems for emergency respon-
ders, law enforcement, rescue,
and fire personnel. While re-
sponding to a call for assistance
they are having a difficult time
finding the house due to the lack
of numbers posted on most roads
in the county. This coupled with a
number of street signs that seem
to fall down or disappear is caus-
ing slower than expected re-
sponse times to some calls.
DEP initiates action
against local man
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) is seek-
ing action against Lafayette
County resident John Parsons for
the improper disposal of animal
renderings said Jodi Conway,
Community Outreach Manager
with the Florida DEP in Jack-
sonville.
Conway said Parsons faces ad-
ministrative penalties in the
amount of $3000 and must pro-
vide documentation that the ma-
terials have been properly dis-
posed of at a permitted facility.
The documentation must be sub-
mitted to the DEP office within 30
days of the finalized legal order
according to Conway.
Dept. of Children
and Families to
close Mayo office
The Department of Children
and Families (DCF) has adopted a
plan to modernize and provide
public assistance services in the
most effective and efficient man-
ne said Tom Barnes, spokesper-
son for District 3. District 3 in-
cludes 11 north central Florida
counties Alachua, Bradford, Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamil-
ton, Lafayette, Levy, Putnam,
Suwannee and Union.
*This plan includes closing the
DCF office in Mayo possibly as
soon as early April said Barnes.

worked with DCF since 1993 said
they have started to inform their
clients about the change and
hope to make the transition as
easy as possible.

Lighthouse Christian Academy presents 2nd Annual Patriotic Program
On Veteran's Day, Lighthouse Christian Academy
presented it's 2nd Annual Patriotic Program in honor
of our country and its veterans. Bro. John Whitting- ., ..
ton gave the welcome to a packed auditorium filled. ..
with friends and'family who came to participate in .
this special day. '
The program kicked-off with a presentation of both -, '
the American and Christian flags. Cody Burghart
then led us in the pledges to both flags. The K4 class
followed up by doing a great job singing "I Pledge
Allegiance to the Flag." kV
The students in Miss Tucker's seventh and eighth :
grade class had been working for several weeks on
their part of the program. The students paired-up, i.
and each team selected a national monument or sym-
bol to report on. Those included were the American -
flag, Washington Monument, Lincoln.Memorial, Stat-
ue of Liberty, the bald eagle, the Constitution, and the .,,
Star-Spangled Banner. During the program, as each
team made their presentation, we were reminded
about the rich history and heritage of our country. Al Il k
Mrs. Lori Land's K4-K5 class was a big hit with
their rendition of "I'm in the Lord's Army!" Clad in
camouflage hats and bandannas, they sang with en-
thusiasm and conviction.
Many in the audience were taken on a trip down .
memory lane as Mrs. Wainwright's 1st and 2nd grade
class sang the classic "School Days" and "You're a 3 ". "d
Grand Ole Flag." They then handed out homemade 4
flags to each veteran.
Mrs. Jackson's fourth and fifth grade class sang "Let lt
There Be Peace on Earth," reminding us that, even in .,
times of war, our country's goal is to bring peace and .
democracy to this world. A
Mrs. Flowers' fifth and sixth grade class showed
their dramatic flair as they performed three patriotic --
skits. One was a humorous story about Thomas Jef-
ferson called "Thomas Jefferson and the Big Cheese."
Another detailed the origin of the song "Yankee Doo-
die Dandy," while the third was a vivid portrait of .
the events leading up to Francis Scott Key's penning
of the "Star-Spangled Banner."
Accompanied by Bro. John on the keyboard, LCA's __
brand-new chorus made their debut singing "Ameri-
ca, the Beau'tiful." X. .. ,
Not to be left out, Mrs. Sherry's and Mrs. Tina's 2. T,-I
and 3 year-olds marched into the auditorium to the .' :
tune of "Born in the USA." Waving their flags, they ; ...
had a great time on stage dancing to "Yankee Doodle
Dandy."
As our program drew to a close, the lights were
dimmed and attention was drawn to two young "I"- "
ladies on stage. The audience listened with awe to ': ,
the amazing voices of Jessica Williams and Emily Sell- i -
eck singing. the "Star-Spangled Banner." As the song
ended, there was not a dry eye in the house. "
Thank you, veterans, for all that you have done, all ,, .:
that you are doing, and, al-l that you will do in the fu- A
ture. We appreciate you and your families for your... ..
sacrifice. May God richly bless you and our country. :. .

r t s By Terry Hedgespeth ;
Sports Reporte'r

Lafayette County's news source since 1888. We're proud to serve!


Hornet Basketball Report
it; .. Wimberley would lead scoring 8 poin
the Hornets with 12 points, rebounds, sto
followed by Sellers with 8, twice and han
SMcIntyre 7, osh Scott 4, and sists.
Joseph Edwards and Darren Also scoring
Powe each adding a basket. the ladies was


Wimberley fights for position as #4 Sellers breaks open. Both have turned in nice efforts thus far this year. Sellers is starting to put
some points up and getting his shots to drop, some from downtown. If he catches fire, that has to be a plus since Parker, Page and
Mclntyre have shown to be explosive on any given night from behind the line.


Varsity Boys Action
Through 14 games thus
far this season, the Hornets
varsity boys team is putting
up some great numbers.
Cody Page is shooting
73% from the foul line and
41% from downtown lead-
ing to an average of over 17
points a game and is averag-
ing 9 rebounds a game.
Eric lMclntyre is averaging
close to 14 pointt a game
with ..,4 rebounds, while
teammate Thomas Parker is
averaging close to 12 points
a game and pulling down
over 5 rebounds.
The Hornets started the
new year holding off a
pesky Bell team, but then
fell victim to the top two
teams in the district, both on
the toad in Trenton and
Bronson.
Mayo would get off to a
slow start despite an early
three point basket by
Jonathan Sellers for a 3-2
lead, but would fall behind
by a double digit margin


early but would rally and
take their next lead early in
the second quarter after a
Page basket 'lifted the Hor-
nets to a 19-18 lead. The
margin would balloon back
to 12 by halftime however.
The Hornets would pull
within four points in the
third on the strength of Page
free throws and a basket by
Sellers.. But the lead would
grow back to seven at the
end of the third period.
Trailing by nine points in
the final quarter, Parker
managed to drop a three
pointer after a nice pass
from. Darren Powe, fol-
lowed by a couple of steals
for baskets by McIntyre
pulled the Hornets within
two points. McIntyre would
find the bottom of the net
once again to keep the Hor-
nets close at 46-44. Mayo
would stay close at 50-47
late in the game not getting
many breaks on the calls.
Parker would pull the Hor-
nets within a 50-48 score


from the line, but the quick-
ness around the basket by
the Tigers resulted in a key
basket that led to an exciting
53-48 loss for the Hornets.
Page would lead the team
with 15 points, pull down 10
rebounds, hand out 5 assists
and block 2 shots in an out-
standing effort to keep his
team in the game.
Parker would score 11.
points with 8 rebounds in
this game, and record 3 as-
sists along with a steal for
the Hornets.
McIntyre would turn in a
nice defensive effort,' espe-
cially in the final quarter,
stealing the ball 4 times
while deflecting a pass and
pulling down a couple of re-
bounds leading to 8 points.
Sellers would match the 8
point output while grabbing
3 boards and deflected a
pass.
Michael Wimberley
would grab 6 boards in this
contest and block 2 shots
while passing for an assist.


He would score 4 points.
It would not get any easi-
er for the Hornets traveling
to Bronson, and the news
would get worse as Page
would not be able to suit up
for health reasons. We cer-
tainly hope all is well in the
Page family and look for-
ward to seeing this out-
.standing senior back on the
court quickly after a full re-
covery.
The Hornets would do
their best in hanging with
the district powerhouse in
Bronson and actually took a
first quarter lead of 14-12
due to the strength under-
neath by Wimberley.
Bronson would explode
over the next two quarters
however outscoring the
Hornets by 21 points to take
control of the game.


Lady Hornets
continue to dominate
district foes
The Lafayette High School
Lady Hornets took one on
the chin against highly
ranked NFC, but have
clinched the top seed in the
district following wins over
Bell, Bronson and Trenton.
The closest game actually
came against Trenton in a
66-23 route that saw the
Hornets score the first 25
points of the game before
Trenton could find a score.
Natalie Land would score
29 points in the contest. She
would also create havoc
once again with tenacious
defense taking the ball away
10 times while grabbing 7
rebounds. A block and two
assists would finish her
night. The highlight of her
night having a little fun was
a behind the back pass to
Taquella Macklin for two
points.
Marla Alcazar did a great
job with the hustle herself


ts, grabbed 5
)le the ball
ded out 2 as-

8 points for
s Sharahonda


Cherry. She would grab 3
rebounds, steal the ball
twice, forced two five sec-
ond calls and handed out 2
assists.
Lillie Prine turned in some
good minutes for Mayo
scoring 6 points while grab-
bing a rebound, forced a five
second call and passed the
ball for two assists.
Kelsey Land scored 4
points in the contest, and
stole the ball twice while
grabbing a rebound, a steal
and blocked a shot.
Also scoring 4 points was
Taquelia Macklin, adding to
her 2 steals and 1 assist to-
tals. Her sister Cartasha
would finish the scoring for
Mayo with a bucket and
made a couple of steals.
Sabrina Craig finished the
district contest with 4
points, 2 steals and a re-
bound while her teammate
Fran Smith Would score 4
points, grab a rebound,
hand out an assist and was
effective defensively block-
ing 3 shots.


Smith battles for the jump ball. She would block three shots
down low in a recent district matchup.


Craig goes high to get the ball.


Alcazar on the defense. She certainly gets her share of take al-
ways for a very aggressive Hornets defense.


Darren Powe.has proven he can get up with the best of them. Powe has been getting his share of
blocked shots this year down low.

Mayo Woman's Club

holds meeting


submiitted by: Ina Putnal
Sherry Glover presented
the program at the first
meeting of the Mayo
Woman's Club for 2006 on
January 10. Sherry and her
husband Charles spent sev-
eral weeks in the hurricane
Katrina ravaged area of
Louisiana. She shared with
us her visions of the disaster
she encountered.
Sherry explained that be-
fore they could volunteer
their services they had to re-
ceive training in how to deal
with the victims they spoke
to. A most important part
of their work would be to
listen and provide an outlet
for these individuals to ex-
press their feelings. She
said that even after more
than a month after the hur-
ricane most had not spoken
with anyone to let them
know about their situation.
For the most part, the
damage they observed was
not from the hurricane but
the flood waters that came
after. As the flood waters
receded mold began to
grow and snakes remained
behind in/the ruble of the
homes. Refrigerators and
freezers were sitting along
the roads, still full of food.
The resulting odor was
horrendous and the water
highly toxic making it an ex-
tremely dangerous area.
She recounted several sto-
ries by victims and the emo-
tional toll on all. Part of the
volunteers' job'was to mark
homes after they had been
checked. Each one was
marked with spray paint to
indicate the date checked,

experiences in Louisiana.
number of survivors
and/or dead, as well as
number of pets. Sherry
shared with us numerous
pictures of what they had
seen. She said she didn't
think she could go back.
The members appreciated
Sherry sharing her experi-
ences with us.
The Woman's Club con-
cluded a Short Story/Poetry
contest for students at
Lafayette Middle School in
December, These students
will be recognized for their
participation and awards
given this month. Another
activity currently in
progress is planning for a
story telling event in the
near future. Cassie Selleck
has been working with fifth
grade students in the art of
story telling.
The Woman's Club is off
to a good start for. 2006with
22 members attending the
first meeting. JoAnn Peter-
son, Donna Ellis, Cassie Sel-
leck, Alice Land, Irene Cal-
houn and Sheila Perry
served as hostesses for the
meeting.


Linda Smith
Two teams from the Jr.
Chapter of. the Lafayette
FFA performed their skills
in front of the Rotarians on
Wednesday, January 11.
They were preparing to go
to sub-district and district
competitions, so they took
the opportunity to polish
their skills in front of some
home-town folks before go-
ing on to the real thing.


The two teams took turns
performing in front of local
Rotarians. Each of the
teams had strict protocol
that they have to go by and
each one had to perform it
correctly. They are judged
on their performance in a
variety of areas, such as
how. they' present them-
selves, their voice, the cor-
rect way they conduct their
business, etc. ,

2004 the Department of
State created a diverse
starring committee whose
purpose was to work with
all major stakeholders on
the development of the
system by providing their
expertise and input. "Flori-
da will have one of the best
statewide voter registra-
tion systems in the nation
as a result of the collabora-

pervisors, vendors, and as-
sociated agencies," said
Susan Gill, Citrus County
Supervisor of Elections
and President of the Flori-
da State Association of Su-
pervisors of Elections.
Florida's technical solu-
tion for meeting HAVA re-


quirements is unique with-
in the country. Florida's 67
counties will continue to
utilize their existing sys-
tems which have been re-
tained with modifications
to interface in real time
with the FVRS. This course
of action was crafted to
minimize any disruptive
impact to the counties; to
ensure compliance by the
federal deadline of January
2006; and to save the State
thousands of dollars. Many
states, which chose a differ-
ent approach are meeting
significant delays and
added costs for implemen-

third of all states will miss
the federal deadline.

about people than num-

Davis spent his time
chatting with locals and
business owners about is-
sues such as the economy,
the environment, and edu-
cation. People were eager
to discuss their concerns
with Davis. While at the J
& J Propane Company,
Davis met Chuck Hewitt,
who talked about the rising
cost of gas and how it has
affected his business. At
the County Health Depart-
ment, Robin Pearson chat-
ted with Davis about her
children's education and
the problems she sees with
the FCAT in schools. Others
gave Davis insight on how
deeply rooted the commu-
nity is in family history.

ness has been in the com-
munity for over 50 years.
Of his statewide travels,
Davis said "I've had an
amazing adventure, visit-
ing all 67 counties and
meeting with Floridians in
their communities. I've met
with voters in every possi-
ble setting, from coffee
shops to, people's homes to
local festivals to picnics to
community centers. Florida
is a wonderfully diverse
state where people share a
common goal- the opportu-
nity to live the American
Dream."
Davis has received en-
dorsements from key
Floridians such as Bob Gra-
ham, Pete Peterson, Buddy
MacKay and Rhea Chiles,
who recently passed a pair
of walking bo6ts on to
Davis in honor of her late
husband, Governor Law-

Tackling those last ten pounds
Simple strategies help you sprint to reach your goal
Those last ten pounds you need to lose are the equivalent of somewhere around
mile 20 in a marathon. It's that point where you're most inclined to "hit the wall" -- that
plateau where you're not that far from your goal, but you fear you just won't be able.
to complete that last leg. Take a tip from long-distance runners: a little extra mental
preparation can help you sprint across that finish line with confidence and pride.
Kelly Brownell, Ph.D., professor of Epidemiology and Public Health, and director of
the Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders, suggests focusing on your
behaviors rather than your weight. "Instead of over-scrutinizing those last ten
pounds, look at the big picture of all the positive changes you're made so far," says
Brownell. "Applaud yourself for continuing to make smart food choices, moving your
body more every day, and having the right mental attitude for success."
"Keep your expectations realistic," adds Lisa Talamini, RD, chief nutritionist and
program director for Jenny Craig, Inc. "Those last ten pounds are often the most
difficult to lose, and won't come off as quickly as the first ten did.
"Take a moment and revisit your reasons for losing weight," adds Talamini. "Ask
yourself -- why did you initially choose your desired weight? Have you already
achieved what you want, in terms of your health and appearance? Or will losing ten
more pounds help you realize those benefits?"
If you decide you look and feel just fine where you are -- congratulations!
Celebrate your achievement and start immediately maintaining your new, healthy
lifestyle. If you'd still like to shed those lastfew pounds, however, Talamini suggests
you focus on short-term eating and exercise goals to keep you inspired along the
way.
Pay attention to your portions. Spot-check your servings at each meal to make
sure you're not experiencing "portion creep." Remember that restaurant servings are
often two to three times larger than what you should, consume, so don't forget that
doggie bag!
Exercise your options. You may be getting bored with your current fitness routine
--and your body may have become a little too adjusted to it. Try increasing the
intensity, duration or frequency of what you enjoy doing now. Or cross-train to
challenge new muscles and burn more calories, by incorporating a good variety of
cardio, resistance and stretching activities.
Break it up. The 2005 Dietary Guidelines recommend up to 60-90 minutes of
physical activity per day to prevent weight regain. The good news is that all moderate
movement counts, s'o you can accumulate your daily quota by playing catch with
your kids, gardening, running around with your grandchildren at the park, or enjoying
your weekly tennis game. Also feel free to break up your more structured exercise --
such as walking -- into smaller, manageable bouts throughout the day so that you
can fit fitness into even the busiest of schedules.
Rely on a little (more) help from your friends. Continue to surround yourself with a
positive, supportive entourage. Some of the: palsr who encouraged you at the
beginning of your weight loss journey may be telling you that you "look great now"
and "don't need to lose another pound." While this is nice to hear, pay more heed to
the advice of better-intentioned friends who will help keep you focused on your


goals.
