Boyd decrys proposed cuts in healthcare


Congressman Allen Boyd'
(D-North Florida) criticized
the Administration's 2007
budget for the proposed
cuts to Medicare. Medicaid
and other important health-
care programs. The Presi-
dent's budget reduces
Medicare by $36 billion
over the next five years and
by $105 billion over the next
10 years. This includes cuts
in payment to hospitals,
skilled nursing facilities and
ambulance services and in-.
creases in Medicare premi-
ums for certain beneficia-
ries. In addition, the budget
slashes Medicaid by $13.7,
billion over the next five
years.
"The administration's
budget makes cuts to the
Medicare program at a time
when seniors, pharmacists
and hospitals are struggling
with the new Medicare pre-


scription drug plan and that
just doesn't make sense,"
Congressman Boyd said.
"Seniors, children and peo-


ple with disabilities depend

A sheltered life


So often it sounds nega-
tive when someone says,
you live a sheltered life.
But what they don't know
,is, that is a blessing in dis-
guise! In Romans 16:19 the
Apostle Paul said to the
saints at'Rome, as he was
directed by the Holy Ghost,
...I would have you wise
unto that which is good,
and simple concerning evil.
You should know a lot
about the good stuff and
not so much about the bad
stuff!
It's good to be ignorant of
what is going on in the
world! Christians don't
need to be aware of what is
going on in the back allies
of our neighborhoods; and
not necessarily the lower
income neighborhoods ei-
ther! Be glad you don't
know how to recognize var-
ious drug paraphernalia.
It's not bad not to know
what marijuana smells like.
You don't need to know
what crack cocaine looks
like. The less you know
about the bad stuff the easi-
er it is to keep your
thoughts on the good stuff.
If you'll look around at
those who are out in the
world you'll begin to notice


David H. Matier


that as a child of the Living
God you do live a sheltered
life and you should be very
thankful to Him for that.
Wickedness is prevalent in
our world, not sickness,
but wickedness!
People don't think any-
thing of lying, cheating,
drunkenness, pornogra-
phy, cohabitation, illicit af-
fairs, homosexual relation-
ships etc. and the multi-
plied numbers of horrible,
unthinkable acts and ac-
tions these life styles entail.
Many Christians have
lived a sheltered life and
need to be thankful that
they have!

On Behalf of

the family of

Little Wade

Ducksworth
We would like to thank
everyone for the over-
whelming outpouring of
your love and support that
you have shown us. Thank
you for all the phone calls,
food and cards: Some of
you may have just said a
prayer and that's fine be-
cause we needed and con-
tinue to need the prayers.
We know that without
GOD'S help and the sup-
port of our family and loved
ones we could not make it
through this very difficult
time in our lives.
Little Wade was and still
is a truly remarkable young
man and will truly be
missed. And even though
he is gone he will NEVER
be forgotten. We don't un-
derstand why GOD decided
to take him when he did,
but one thing we do know
without a shadow of a
doubt is that he is up in
heaven having the best time
of his life "entertaining"
everyone.
In the short time that Lit-
tle Wade was with us he
planted a lot of LOVE seeds
with everyone that he came
in contact with and I want
to challenge everyone that
received a LOVE seed from
him to water it and share it
with everyone that you
come in contact with.
Little Wade taught us a
lot of lessons but the most
valuable lesson of all is to
always put GOD first in
your life and to live life to
the fullest.
Once again thank you so
much, may GOD bless each
and everyone.

Boys State.... Florida's Premier


Youth Leadership Program


Linda Smith
Lee Peters, Public De-
fender from Live, Oak, and
member of the American
Legion, gave Rotarians an
overview of Florida's
American Legion Boys
State program. This is a
one week course in state
and local govern-
ment which is de-
veloped to of-
fer youth a
better per-
spective of
the practical
operation of
government
and to show
that the individ-
ual is responsible
for the character and suc-
cess of his government.
To be eligible to be select-
ed to go to Boys State, dele-
gates must be boys who.
have completed their junior
year of high school and
have at least one semester
of high school remaining,
have above average
scholastic standing, 3.0
GPA or above, have an in-
terest in the government
process, have outstanding
qualities of leadership,
character, scholarship, loy-
alty and service to their
school and community,


must be a resident of Flori-
da, and never attended
Boys State.
Delegates selected to go
to boys state "learn by do-
ing" as they go through the
various phases of govern-
ment. So this is a highly ed-
ucational activity that
teaches youth about
leadership in
our govern-
ment. The
delegates
get a work-
ing knowl-
edge of the
structure of
government.
During the
process they also
learn about the political
process (for instance the
steps that a bill goes
through before it can be
passed) and these delegates
have a chance to serve in
these various positions.
After arriving at Boys
State in Tallahassee, the
delegates are assigned a
political party and they
have to develop their own
philosophy or platform
and then set out to cam-
paign for election to these
offices..
Last year, Lafayette
County had'two of the


Lee Peterson, Public Defender
and member of American Le-
gion Post 107 of Live Oak pre-
sents the program.

Boys' State delegates elect-
ed to state offices during
the week. Brian Scott was
elected to the House of Rep-
resentatives and Justin
Moses as Commissioner of
Agriculture. According to
Peterson, this was quite an
honor, "two delegates from
the smallest districts con-
vincing the larger districts
to vote them into office at
Boys State."
This year the Florida
American Legion Boys
State will hold its 63rd ses-
sion June 18-24, 2006 at
Florida State University,
Tallahassee.

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
The kindergarten classes at Lafayette Elementary have
a themeatic unit for each month of the school year.
Christmas Around The World was the theme for Decem-
ber. During the month of January, they completed a unit
of study about dinosaurs.
According to Tammy Guyten, the lead teacher, the stu-
dents learned many important things from the unit on
dinosaurs. Examples include what might have caused
the dinosaurs to go extinct; what the dinosaurs ate; Pale-
ontologists; and the different types of dinosaurs. The stu-
dents also enjoyed making different art projects. They
made Stegosaurses, Dinorellas,, T-Rexes, and Trycero-
topses.
As part of the unit, Dillan the dinosaur, as well as Plato
the dinosaur from Publix, made a surprise visit to each
kindergarten class on Jan. 26. "Plato the dinosaur from
Publix came and brought coloring books for the stu-
dents," Guyten said. "At the end of the unit we had the
students pretend to be paleontologists and hunt for di-
nosaur bones." The kindergarten teachers and students
thanks Publix for their participation in the unit on di-
nosaurs.
On Jan. 24, the kindergarten classes celebrated the
100th day of school. According to Guyten, they celebrat-
ed by counting different things to 100.
The theme of study for February is history: They will
be studying spring in March,'community helpers and
transportation in April and oceans in May. The kinder-
garten teachers at Lafayette Elementary are Virginia Cok-
er, Tammy Guyten, Becky Long, and Francene Folsom.

Boyd calls for an honest budget

Administration's budget fails to include full cost of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan


Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida)
criticized the Administra-
tion's 2007 budget for its
failure to include the full
cost of our efforts in Iraq
and Afghanistan and
called on the President to
return honesty and ac-
countability to our gov-
ernment's budget.


CORRECTION: The picture

apologize for having the
wrong picture with her

Reporting the News" in last
week's issue. Pholo: Ira Mikell

The President's 2007
budget asks for $439.3 bil-
lion in discretionary de-
fense spending, but the
bulk of this funding is for
personnel and procure-
ment and not our ongoing
mission in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Additional-
ly, the President's budget
fails to account for the
cost of all men and.
women in uniform, opting
to pay for over 15,000
Army and Marine Corps
personnel in a supple-
mental package later this
year.
"By omitting the full
cost of operations in Iraq
and Afghanistan, the Ad-
ministration's budget is
not an honest account of
money in and money out,"
said Congressman Boyd.
"In 2005, we spent over $5
billion in Iraq and
Afghanistan every month,
and by not including
these costs in our budget,
we are overlooking one of


our biggest expenses. It's
akin to a family leaving
their mortgage payment
out of their budget. The
Administration has gotten
in a bad habit of funding
the War on Terror-one of
their biggest priorities-
through emergency sup-
plemental bills, and this is
an unhealthy cycle for our
government and mislead-
ing to the American peo-
ple."
Under the guise of fiscal
restraint, the President's
proposed $2.7 trillion
budget will decrease do-
mestic spending, yet still
leave a massive $355 bil-
lion deficit. However,
$355 billion is not an hon-
est figure since this does
not account for the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
To make matters worse,
the President's budget
does nothing to make the
federal government more
accountable for taxpayer
dollars.

A leader of the Blue
Dogs, Congressman Boyd
is deeply concerned with
continued deficit spend-
ing, the complete disre-
gard for fiscally responsi-
ble policies, and a funda-
mentally dishonest bud-
get process. In 2005, Con-
gressman Boyd joined his
fellow Blue Dogs in offer-
ing a 12 Step Plan to re-
form our broken budget
process. The Blue Dog
plan required, among oth-
er things, that the pay as
you go rules be reinstated,
that Congress produce a
balanced budget, and that
all federal agencies pass
clean audits.
"Our budget process is
in shambles, full of waste-
ful spending and devoid
of accountability and en-
forcement measures,"
Boyd stated. "For exam-
ple, the Coalition of Pro-
visional Authority, under
the Department of De-
fense, cannot account for

This waste and lack of ac-

disregard for taxpayer
dollars and a financial
problem that is spiraling
out of control. Unfortu-
nately, the President is
continuing this harmful
trend with a budget that
does not include mean-


ingful budget reforms and
fails to account for our
spending."

Ladies take round one of regional tournament


Never underestimate the
heart of a Hornet. The
Mayo boys varsity team
entered the district 6-2A
tournament as the number
three seed and was only
able to collect one win in
six tries against the top two
seeds in the district during
the regular season.
Against top seeded Tren-
ton, Mayo lost two tough
ballgames in district play,
but was able to score a lop-
sided win over the Tigers
in the Bronson Holiday
tournament. Against the
second seeded Bronson Ea-
gles, the Hornets lost three
very competitive games.
Mayo held a nine point
lead after three quarters in
game one before falling in
the end, and lost on a last
second three point prayer
in the holiday invitational.
The Hornets were short
handed in the final game
and fell convincingly.
But this is tournament
time, and the Hornets
would be ready. The first
opponent in the semi-final
round was Bronson. The
fear factor took place in
this one as Mayo was not
wanting to take a fourth
loss in one season to Bron-
son. .
i :Seniior leadership took
over in the first quarter af-
ter Thomas Parker and
Cody Page would score
quickly to put the Hornets
in front 5-1. Parker would
finish the first quarter with
7 points and 2 rebounds,
while Page would score 5
points, while pulling down
3 boards and handed out a
couple of assists to help
Mayo hold on to a slim 12-
11 first quarter lead.
The Hornets would fall
behind 39-38 by the half af-
ter both teams lit up the
scoreboard in the second
quarter. Eric McIntyre
would catch fire netting 12
points to lead the Hornets.
All 12 points came from
shots from downtown, in-
cluding a huge one to end
the half after Bronson ap-
peared to be taking control.
The bad news for the Hor-
nets was the loss of Parker

for the game which caused
a little anxiety from the
fans, but the Hornets
would step it up to make
up for the loss.
Mayo would come out of
the locker room on a mis-
sion as Michael Wimberley
would take control down
low pulling down 5 re-
bounds.and score 6 points
as a result of a couple of
impressive offensive
boards. Joseph Edwards
would also find some
space to, drop 5 points in
the quarter as the Hornets
surged out in front 57-52


after three quarters of play.
Mayo would get a quick
three pointer from Chris
Givens and Joseph Ed-
wards would take an assist
from Page to push the lead
to ten points.
Bronson would make a
push as expected pulling
within four points late in
the game, but great free
throw shooting by
Jonathan Sellers closed the
door on the Eagles as
Mayo would advance to
the finals against Trenton
with a 73-67 win.
McIntyre wouldlead the


Hornets in scoring with 19
points along with 4 re-
bounds.
Great players just find
the will and ways to win
which was the case with
Page. He would only
score 8 points on the night,
but pulled down 10 re-
bounds while handing out
10 assists as Bronson tried
to keep him under control.
Wimberley would finish
the game with 9 rebounds
while blocking a couple of
shots, one of which came
early in the third quarter
which fueled a great run
by Mayo. Wimberley
would score two points in
the game.
Edwards would finish

perfect 8-0 run which in-

Trenton certainly came
to play in the first half out-

ing period to grab a 22-16
lead, and would extend.
that margin to double dig-

up the defensive intensity
to hold the Hornets to just
8 points in the second
quarter.

room with a little bit of de-
fensive intensity them-
selves as they pulled with-

quarter with Wimberley

and McIntyre started to


heat up.
A combination of
tremendous rebounding

contest with Page leading

Sellers was able to score 10 points,
while McIntyre warmed up in the second
half dropping three from behind the arc
for his 11 point total.
A key element against Trenton was the
play of Darren Powe down low grabbing


key rebounds and scored 9 points off the

Lady Hornets Advance
in regional tournament
The Lady Hornets faced Jefferson Coun-
ty in the first round of the regional tour-
nament and advanced with a convincing
60-44 win.
Mayo would jump out early on the
strength of 11 first quarter points by Na-
talie Land along with 3 steals and 3 as-
sists. The assists resulted in 7 points by
power forward Fran Smith who also
grabbed a couple of rebounds as Mayo
jumped out to an early 19-6 first quarter
lead.
Marla Alcazar would warm up in the
second quarter netting 8 points as the
Lady Hornets would stretch the lead to
34-13 at the half.
The Tigers from Jefferson County
would battle in the third quarter to pull
within a 44-32 margin but a solid fourth


quarter by Land that saw 12 points drop
while Land would pull down 2 rebounds,
2 steals and handed out 2 assists to lead
the Lady Hornets into the second round
with a 60-44 win.
Land would finish the night with 29
points, 7 steals, 6 assists and 6 rebounds.
Smith played a great game netting 11
points with 6 rebounds, a steal and
blocked a shot in a dominating perfor-
mance.
Marla Alcazar would net 11 points, and
played an outstanding overall game with
3 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and blocked
a shot.
Another Lady Hornet turning in a
great effort was Sharhonda Cherry
scoring 5 points, pulled down 5 re-

out an assist helping the Lady Hornets
advance to the second round of region-

Memories from the Past


Conclusion of Cooks Hammock.....


submitted by
O.A. Winburn, Jr.
A little further south of
Cooks Hammock stood the
McKinney residence. It had
been bypassed also with
the new road and instead
of passing by in the front of
the home it went to the
west a good distance.
Mr. Summer McKinney
was the head of this house-
hold and after the new road
was built it was not a con-
venient stop. However, Mr.
McKinney was a frequent
visitor to the "store" when
he came to Mayo and he
maintained an eminent
presence around Mayo.
My recollection does not
afford much about this
family but I remember
Glenn and Ms. Cora, and of
course, Tom Adams and
his mother. Ms. Cora was a
school teacher, probably
teaching at Cook's Ham-
mock school. She also
served a good while as the
member of the school
board as I recall. Glenn
McKinney became sort of a
hero to this youngster.


Cowboys you, know were
in the forefront in those
days, and Glenn was a
cowboy. I suppose he was a
cattleman which necessitat-
ed lots of riding in those
days of the open range and
of course he may have tak-
en on the job of range rider
during the tick eradication
program. He always had a
beautiful horse and he fit
the description of a cowboy
in every way. He presented
a picturesque figure sitting
in that beautiful saddle.
Glenn went on to become a
noted rodeo performer and
was quite adept at calf rop-
ing as well as other feats.
Once he brought his
rodeo troupe to Mayo and
a large gathering paid to
see him and the others per-
form. I seem to recall that
Stanley Cannon left with
Glenn after that perfor-
mance to join him on the
rodeo circuit. I also seem to
recall that Stanley's rodeo
days were short in number
and that he returned to as-
sume his life in Lafayette
County where he eventual-


? Fil.il


0.A. Winburn, Jr.


ly would serve as the elect-
ed sheriff after serving as
deputy for a number of
years.
Ms. Cora, Tom Adams
and his mother Ida eventu-
ally moved to Mayo after
purchasing the Winderwee-
dle home which was near
where I once lived.
The mention of the
Winderwedle (Henry
Lafayette) home in Mayo
seems to suggest that it is
time to move on and with
that in mind, I will close
these comments about my
recollections as to Cooks
Hammock and resume later
in the little town of
M ayo.........


Gospel Music by


The Sullivan


The Sullivan Family will
be making two appear-
ances, Saturday night Feb-
ruary 25, at 6. p.m. at the
Trenton Community Center
and February 26, 'at the
Trenton Church of God, at 6
p.m. located right cross
from the Trenton High
SSchool. There will be a $5
entry fee at the door Satur-
day, February 25, plus 3
more bluegrass groups per-
forming that evening. On
Sunday, February 26, at the
Trenton Church of God
there will be one other Blue-
grass Gospel group playing
that evening before The Sul-
livan Family concert.
Have any question please
call 352-284-0668.
Over 50 years of Sullivan
Ministry has produced
some of 'the most inspira-
tional music in recent histo-
ry. Though Bluegrass
Gospel Music is a fairly re-
cent invention on the time
clock of man, it serves to be
one of the most powerful
and anointed expressions of
faith in our Savior Jesus
Christ. The magnificent
blending of talent, ministry
and mountain string music
will most certainly lead you


to the still waters of a Holy
God. These expressions of
the heart will have a lasting
effect on your life and your
soul.
From the soul searching
sounds of "Walking My
Lord tp Calvary's Hill" to
the excitement of "Gospel
Train", these songs are sure
to reverberate throughout
all history. Some also say
.that the sound of Bluegrass
Gospel Music will be heard
in and around the throne
room of God as we take our
rightful place at the foot of
our Blessed Savior. Perhaps
that is why, on occasion, the
heart-felt songs of the Sulli-
van Family are filled with
the added voices of the un-
seen. I would suppose that
even the mightiest of angels
are drawn into an audience
of God's elect as the power-
ful stories of worship are
sung by the faithful and tal-
ented voices of Enoch and
Margie Sullivan.

The Courthouses Of

Lafayette County: Part 2


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
The exact date when
Fayetteville was estab-
lished is not known. How-
ever, the 1860 census, com-
piled by William Kenyon
Jones, a son of Ariel Jones,
shows that it was a thriving
town near the banks of the
Suwannee River. Unfortu-
nately, this is the only sur-
viving census of Fayet-
teville.
According to the 1900
Mast, Crowell, & Kirk-
patrick map of Florida, the
* town of Fayetteville was
flourishing even at the turn
of the century. But, on an
earlier map, an 1883 map of
Florida by Phillips and
Hunt, Fayetteville is not
listed. Because of this dis-
crepency, it is difficult to
determine the number of
years it existed until the
people disbanded and went


elsewhere.
Approximately 141 peo-
ple lived in Fayetteville
when the census was taken
on June 4, 8, 9, 13, and, 16,
1860. The majority of the
people were born in the
states of Georgia, North
Carolina, Alabama, South
Carolina, and New York.
The occupation listed the
most was farming.
According to the 1860
census, Fayetteville had a
courthouse, general store,
school, town doctor, an en-
gineer, a brick mason, and a
place where the ferry
docked.
If you have any informa-
tion and/or pictures relat-
ing to the history of the
courthouses of Lafayette
County, call the Mayo Free
Press at 386-294-1210. We

Teens & Income Taxes: A Stepping


Stone for Financial Responsibility


Take Charge America
offers four tips your
teen needs to know

The teenage years are filled with fun
and responsibility. It's about first dates,
the first time behind the wheel and first
jobs. However, all of these "firsts" are ac-
companied by one thing money. That's
why it is important for teens to learn how
to save money, use credit wisely, and yes,
pay dues to Uncle Sam.
Mike Sullivan, director of education for
Take Charge America, a non-profit credit
counseling company, says parents should
not only teach their children how to pay
taxes, but explain why it is necessary.
"Paying taxes is a part of proper money.
management. It is a life skill carried well
into adulthood," said Sullivan. "Teens
need to know that taxes pay for govern-
ment services, including highways, parks
and law enforcement."
If your teen receives W-2's, 1099's or
other statements of income, he or she
might have to file, but even if filing isn't
required, it is usually a good idea to file if
wages have been withheld. A refund may
be due.
"It's important for teenagers to become
acquainted with taxes while their income
is low because as income increases, the
tax laws become increasingly coinplicat-
ed," said Sullivan. "Staying out of debt is
a year-round effort. It includes being re-
sponsible for every aspect for your fi-
nances, including-taxes, no matter how
minor or complicated they appear."


Sullivan says there are four things
working teens need to know about in-
come taxes:
Nuts and Bolts: After landing a job, you
need to fill out a W-4 form with your em-
ployer. At the beginning of the following
year, you will receive a W-2 form from
each job held. In addition, taxes are taken
out of each paycheck throughout the
year.
Tips are Taxable: Many teens find jobs
waiting tables or delivering food. These
jobs are often low paying because the ma-
jority of income will come from tips. If
you make more than $20 a month, you
must tell your boss so he/she can with-
hold the appropriate taxes from your reg-
ular wages.
Using a Tax Refund Wisely: Federal
taxes are taken out of pay checks
throughout the year. If you file a tax re-
turn, a portion, if not all, of the federal in-
come tax money can be returned. Teach-
ing your teen how to use tax refunds
wisely is another money management
skill needed later in life.
Adjust Your Withholding: If you have
too little money taken out of your check
throughout the year, you'll owe the gov-
ernment money when it is time to file
your taxes. On the other hand, if too
much money is withheld, you'll get a
larger refund. While this sort of "forced
saving may seem a good idea, that's
money you could have made better use of
throughout the year, such as saving in an
interest-bearing account. Financial ex-
perts say you should adjust your with-
holding so your tax payments match your
tax liability.

Free Press Reporter
On Friday, Jan. 20, Karen Callis' fifth
grade students discussed possible names
for their school newspaper. According to
Callis, the students listed 21 names to
vote on the following Friday, Jan. 27. Ex-
amples include "Hornets News," "Hornets'
Monthly Gazette," "Hornet Pride," "Hor-
net Times," and "Team Press."
Among the names chosen for the news-
paper, the students-voted-to name it


announced
"Monthly Stinger." All the students loved
the name and thought it was the best
choice. "They liked it anc it had some-
thing to do with the Hornets," Callis said.

Smart reasons to


eat beakfast.....


Submitted by:
Priscilla Cashman, Program
Assistant University of
Florida, Family Nutrition
Program Lafayette County
Extension Service
Smart reasons to eat
breakfast:
Fuels the body with nu-
trients. Your child may not
make up nutrients missed
at breakfast. You may not
either.
Provides food energy
for the morning's active
play.
Gets your child ready
to learn at home, school,
or day care. Kids learn bet-
ter if they eat breakfast. If
you eat breakfast, you may
get more done in the morn-
ing, too.
Helps keep a healthy
body weight. Breakfast
helps control the urge to


nibble or eat too big a lunch.
Even with breakfast, young
kids may need a small-
morning snack.
Helps kids feel good.
Children may get morning
tummy aches if they miss,
breakfast. These aches are'
usually hunger pangs.
Tastes good! Offer-
foods your child and family
enjoy-even if they aren't'
common for breakfast.


Alumni Football Game

25, at 7 PM.- Remember

A Thanksgiving Stroll
By: Austin Anderson, 8th Grade, Honorable Mention
There I was cautiously walking through the thick trees
of the quiet woods,
Worms were trying to escape, but it was no use, I dig
them up and eat them Ummmnmmm, delicious!
I was just strolling there, minding my own business
when a twig snapped!!
I turned my head to and fro gawking at the bushes
I was just about to fly away when my brother stepped
out with two hens.
"Man, you scared me," I said.
"I thought so, you were always a little on the nervous
side."
Suddenly he just dropped,
there was a long, pointy stick in his back,
I screamed and started to fly away, but unexpectedly
everything went black.

A lonely Teen
By Tara Ainsworth, 8th Grade, Honorable Mention
I am a lonely teen with a wondering mind!
I wonder what the world would be like without de-
struction
I hear wondering whispers in the wind
I see discrimination
I want the world to be a better place
I am a lonely teen with a wondering mind!
I pretend to be happy
I feel heartbroken
I touch people's lives wondering only if I can make it
better
I worry about my mother's happiness
I cry when I think about my childhood
I am a lonely teen with a wondering mind!

I understand that life only gets worse
I say things that I don't mean
I dream things that won't happen
I try to make people believe that I'm happy
I hope one day to be successful
I am a lonely teen with a wondering mind!
Crazy in Love
By: Rigoberto Arreguin, 8th' Grade, 3rd Place
I am crazy and happily in love
I wonder how tomorrow will be with her
I hear her voice all around me
I see the sun shining upon her
I want her in my life
I am crazy and happily in love
I pretend to see what's going to happen next
I feel her hand upon mine
I touch her beautiful face
I worry about her problems at her house
I cry when we have a disagreement
I am crazy and happily in love
I understand if it can't be the way I want it to be
I say love you
I dream with her every day
I try to make life fun for her
I hope my mamasita stays with me forever



I~flifiT


1 am crazy and happily in love
I am a Strong Believer
By: Dominique Garner, 8th grade, 2nd place
I am a strong believer
I wonder when the wars will end
I hear the sound of gunfire
I see the brave soldiers marching forward
I want to be the first black president
I am a strong believer
I pretend to talk to Martin Luther King
I feel the sadness in the family
I touch the face of the soft baby
I worry about the next day
I cry when thinking about the lost souls
I am a strong believer
I understand the loneliness of the child
I say I have a dream
I try to be a good leader
I hope to make things right
I am a strong believer
"I Am" Poem
By: Courtney Reinbott, 8th grade, 1st place
I am a brat with braces.
I wonder if my teeth will ever be straight.
I hear crinkling in my mouth.
I see the wires in the mirror.
I want to jerk the pain away.
I am a brat with braces.

I pretend to have straight teeth.
I feel the brackets sinking in my skin.
I touch the braces with hatred.
I worry that the scars will stick forever.
I cry when the braces hurt me.
I am a brat with braces.
I understand that they're supposed to help..
I say that I hate my dentist.
I dream that my dentist will take these wires off.
I try to put up with them.
I hope my burdens will go away.
I am a brat with braces.
Autumn Leaves
By Megan Brantley, 8th grade, $50 Savings Bond
I still desire elongated cobblestone roadways with
leaves on.top of grass on stone;
the taste of the drizzles of rain and its soft murmur
upon me;
the chill of winter crawling into my bones.
And there's still time for long, peaceful walks and the
thoughts rising high, like the steam from my teacup.
The dry, bright white light of these soft moist morn-
ings, the dew closing in that opens me up.
I still desire elongated cobblestone roadways with
leaves and spilled paint on cement.
I am my soul;
I cannot leave.
I travel this road in continuous Autumns
But winter is here now, taking it's place.


My Cat & Me
By Darren Brantley, 6th grade, 3rd Place
Soft and fuzzy,
Rough and skin covered,
Black and white,
Peach and red,
Good rat catcher,
Good video game player,
Good cat,
Even better owner,
Fat and plump.
A lazy non-worker,
Sir Eats-a-lot,
Yep, he takes after me,
He's 6 months old,
I'm 132 months old,
He's so little,
I'm so big,
"Bandit & Me"
(my cat)


I Can't Write a Poem
By: Amanda Weenick, 6th Grade, 2nd Place
I am stuck in a rut,
Can't write a poem
And I always need help.
No one is listening,
Today it is raining.
What is Mom cooking?
Right now I am doing nothing.
I never get to bed on time,
Time is zipping past.
Everything is going WRONG!
And yet it all seems RIGHT!
Parents are fun at times,
Oz is my best friend.
Empty....I can't think of anything to write.
My thoughts are blank.

A Typical Wednesday
By: Kaci Palomino, 6th grade, 1st place
I get up early in the morn
And pick out clothes that can be worn,
I wanna go to college, so I'm going to school
And getting some knowledge so I won't be a fool.
Then I walk with my friends to the dance studio down
the street.
And I go to soccer practice, and that a big treat.
To my house I go to get fed,
Then I run to my room and go to bed.

On the Dance Floor
By: Brody Longley, 6th grade, $50 Savings Bond
You can go wild or take it slow.
Dancing is a rhythm, a beat, a flow.
Whether it's popping, locking, gliding, shaking,
Breaking or even a little Cha-Cha,
Whatever you do, just do it.
Get on the dance floor don't just sit.
You can ask someone to go,
Or just hit the floor solo.
Now you know a little more,
So stop playing and get on that dance floor,

Congratulations to all the entries in the contest!

All who are unsuccessful, unlucky, dissatisfied, let the woman who knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
just a servant of the Lord who was brought here to help humanity. If you
have any problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
business, lawsuits, finances, health; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
there's no problem so great that she cannot solve.

Seeing Is Enjoying:

Tips for Healthy Eyes
A telltale sign that you're not as young as you used to be is when your senses start to diminish. Whether you're
not hearing things as well as you once could or you've noticed your vision is no longer as sharp as it once was,
dealing with diminishing senses can be a difficult adjustment to make. While such changes are inevitable, there
are steps you can take to lessen the blow, especially if you've yet to reach an age where your senses have
begun to lose a step.
Since March is Save Your Vision Month, here are a few steps, courtesy of Prevent Blindness America, the
country's leading eye health and safety organization, that people of all ages can take to minimize how much their
vision diminishes.
Schedule regular visits to the eye doctor. Eye checkups are just as important as overall health checkups.
While not everyone needs to go every year, those 55 and older should go at least once every other year, or once
a year, if possible. It's also important not to wait until something bothers you to see your eye doctor. Even if you
feel as though your vision is fine, if you haven't visited an eye doctor in a while, it's still a good idea to get your
eyes checked. Many eye afflictions offer no noticeable symptoms in their early stages, requiring a trained eyecare
professional to recognize an illness.
Also, since vision changes frequently, getting your eyes examined on a regular basis is important to make sure
you're still wearing the most appropriate prescription.
SMake some easy lifestyle changes. If you've never been one to wear sunglasses, you might want to start..
According to the Radiation Safety Committee at Australia's Charles Sturt University, sunglasses protect people
from solar ultraviolet radiation, something that can be very damaging. Ultraviolet-B radiation (UVB) can be
especially damaging and has even been implicated in inducing skin cancer in addition to being harmful to a
person's vision. While sunglasses should be worn year-round when it's light out, they should be particularly worn
during summertime, when UVB radiation is three times as high as it is during winter.
Another easy lifestyle change is to improve lighting around your house. If you've always been fond of dimly lit
rooms, it's a good idea to add more lighting now, as better and more well-lit rooms are an aid to diminished
vision.
STake care of yourself. Proper healthcare is especially vital to maintaining strong vision. One of the most
damaging side effects of diabetes is visual impairment. Avoiding diabetes can be done with proper diet and
ample exercise. Monitoring your blood pressure regularly as well as your cholesterol level is good for overall
health and can help you avoid diseases such as diabetes that may ultimately affect your vision in a negative way.
Taking care of yourself is also essential even for those people who have already begun to experience
diminishing vision. Any medications you might be prescribed should not be taken lightly, and dosage
recommendations should be strictly followed. If you wear glasses, make sure you always have them with you or
wear them wherever you go if need be. Also, take note of any vision aids that might be helpful. These can include
a magnifying glass if you're reading something with smaller print, such as a newspaper or magazine, or high-
intensity reading lamps that will help you see the words on the page more clearly. Also, many bookstores now
carry large-print editions of popular books that can make reading a lot less stressful on your eyes. lIfa bookstore
doesn't carry such books,.a visit to the store's Web site (if it's a large chain or even a phone.callto the book's
publishing house will let you know if the book comes in large print. ,; h .b
