Hurricane season is
upon us once again and
although it is early in the
season we have already
had one storm and ac-
cording to the experts
there will most likely be
several more before the
season is over. Alberto
turned out to be a help
rather than a hazard. '
Granted it almost
strength but by the time
it reached land its winds
had diminished enough
that it caused very little
damage in any of the
counties. It did put out
large amounts of rain
around the state which
was greatly needed.
This storm was good
practice for emergency
management and our
county's' first respon-

District Executive Director Jerry
Scarborough told the audience,
"What we're putting together now
with MFLs will be extremely impor-

He explained that MFLs will help
the District in the water supply plan-

nutting decisions. The MFLs also will
help ensure sufficient water re-
sources for the public and ecosys-
tems; protect wetlands, fish and
wildlife habitat; and provide protec-

HELPING YOUR TEENS DEVELOP REFUSAL SKILLS
Teach you teen the N.I.C.E. way to say "no". Teens are sensitive to peer
pressure. They do not want their peer to make fun of them or ridicule them.
So when your teen is confronted by a situation that violates his or her values,
comfort, or safety, he or she should be prepared to say "NO" firmly, but
graciously, by following four steps:
M "say no." not "maybe" or "later". Teach your teen to set boundaries and be

Dress code changes for
Dear Parents and Students:
I am writing to advise you of some dress code
changes for next year. I would like to give you this in-
formation now, before you buy your school clothes for
next year. Over the past few weeks, the one concern
that has repeatedly come up from parents is fair en-
forcement of the dress code. We have taken steps to
help solve this problem by making the guidelines
more specific. This should eliminate any issues or
concerns of "unequal" treatment as long as the guide-
lines are followed. Please understand, the dress code
will be enforced. Enforcement is the only way to en-
sure equal treatment.
The Lafayette High School Dress Code is as follows:
Shirts and tops must be long enough to be tucked in
and cover the midriff area when arms are extended
horizontally. "Spaghetti Straps", halter tops, tank tops
and see through tops are not appropriate. Necklines
should be modest, shirts that show a large amount of
the chest area or display cleavage are not appropriate
for school. Material should extend to the cap of the

The 2006 Budget contains major funding for our seniors and
children alike. It restores Medicaid coverage for adult hearing
and vision services, and expands the amount of time nursing
home staff can spend with indi idual patients each day. This
increase will serve to ensure our citizens are properly cared
for in nursing home.facilities. The 2Q06 Legislature extended
the Florida KidCare program to include children ages 1-4who
were pre, iousli inelgible fir the program. Low income par-
ents can nokw purchase high quality health coverage at low.
cost, for all of their children.
The state budget provides funds for the local Sheriff's office to
contract with the Department ot Ju\ enile justice to administer
o. new STAR' juive.1ue program to help our .troubled Vouth.
Tlus program replaces the, "'lp % ti Lb'. c'mp' 'pi m ',ialri
which was eliminated during the 2006 Legislative Session
* Public Records:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1563
which gives the Clerks of the Court the authority to
remove confidential information from a published court
record. With this legislation, we protect our citizens from
the potential for invasion of privacy and also limit oppor-
tunities for identity theft.
*Oyster Surcharge & Oyster Planting:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1249
which eliminated the "unjust" fifty-cent surcharge placed
on each bag of oysters harvested'and sold in Franklin
County. This bill also provides recurring annual funding
for oyster management and restoration.
Funding public education was a priority for the 2006
Legislature. A combined $31.9 billion was appropriated
for Pre-kindergarten, K-12, community colleges, and uni-
versities. District 10 Public Schools received up to 11.7%
increases over last year, and $13.2 million in special facili-
ty funding to complete new school construction.
*Statewide Distance Learning:
Funding contihues for the horticulture industry assuring
technological and practical advancements. This distance
learning initiative provides training and services and has
a significant impact for the horticulture communities both
in the district ,nld statewide.

The 2006 Legislative Session proved to be exciting and challenging.
Legislators were met with many tough issues and concerns that.
thankfully were able to be resolved for the citizens of this great State.
Our citizens, ranging from the youngest.to the elderly, will benefit
from an abundance of new revenues made available in this year's
Funding highlights for District 10 include:
* $13.2 million for new school construction
* $43.3 million in Small County Resurface Assistance Programs
* $1.5 million for Small County Courthouses
- $5.9 million for District 10 water, wastewater and SWIM projects
9 $2.8 million for FRDAP projects
* $2.2 million for Alligator Point Beach Restoration

STORMS & OUTAGES
Long before a storm or hurricane threatens, SVEC stands ready to respond.
When the storm hits, our employees roll up.their sleeves and go to work to
restore power interrupted by the sorm's fury.
Customers who lose power should
contact SVEC. When the call is
answered, the location of the outage is
recorded automatically by SVEC
automated outage-reporting system.
Customers can also speak directly to a
company representative if available.
SVEC brings in additional employees
to respond to customer calls during
major storms, 'and it has dramatically
increased the number of incoming
telephone lines for its outage- :
reporting system. But customers may
experience busy signals and longer-
than-normal waits during times of
high call volumes.
Here are a few tips to follow for your safety:
* If someone in your home is dependent on medical equipment
requiring electricity, make arrangements in advance for and
alternative power source for emergencies.
SIf rising water threatens your home, turn off the power at the
circuit breaker panel or fuse box before water enters your home.
Have an electrician Inspect your system before turning the power
back on after flooding.
* Never replace a fuse or touch a circuit breaker with wet hands, or
while standing on a wet or damp surface.
* If you see a downed power line, call SVEC to report its location.
* Avoid driving over downed power lines. Avoid puddles near
downed power lines.
* Plug only individual appliances into portable generators. Never
connect a generator to wall outlets, building wiring or your home's
* If you require transportation assistance during an evacuation,
register in advance with the Civil Defense and Office of Emergency
Management in your county.
*To prepare for outages, It Is wise to have plenty of fresh batteries
for flashlights and radios.
* If you have a gasoline-powered electric generator, use it In well-
ventilated areas and only plug In individual appliances. Never
connect a generator to a wall outlet of your home orbuilding's
electrical system since that can cause damage to your equipment
and can be a life-tfireatening danger to your family, neighbors and
repair crews. Be sure to have adequate fuel for your generator and
manage consumption by running it for only a few hours at a time.
Prepare a list of essential items you would need in case you are
evacuated from yoilr home and have them readily available. Some of
these items could include medications, Insulin, contact
lenses/supplies, extra eyeglasses and denture needs.
if your power goes out, wait at least five minutes before
reporting it to SVEC office in order to'give our
automatic equipment time to restore power.
... Listen to your local radio and TV stations for
weather updates and Information from SVEC.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports that
smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death and has
negative health impacts on people at all stages of life. It harms unborn
babies, infants, children, adolescents,.adults, and seniors. Surprisingly,
at least a quarter of the United States' population still continues to light
up, says the CDC.
Cigarette smoking has decreased over the years by at least 50
percent (nearly 45 percent of the population smoked during the 1960s).
But there are those who continue to put themselves at risk'despite the.
warnings of doctors, the government, friends and family. In addition, -
many smokers subject spouses and children to secondhand smoke,
needlessly endangering not only themselves, but their loved ones as
Smoking has many health implications. Here are a few to consider,
courtesy of the U.S. Surgeon. General:.
Cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) in tobacco smoke damage
important genes that control the growth of cells, causing them to grow
abnormally or to reproduce too rapidly.
The carcinogen benzoapyrene binds to cells.in the airways and major
organs of smokers.
Smoking affects the function of the immune system and.may
increase the risk for respiratory and other infections.
Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled.
It has been found in every partiof the body and in breast milk.
By smoking around infants, you put them at a greater risk for Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). .
The body produces antioxidants to help repair damaged cells.
Smokers have lower levels of antioxidants in their blood than do
Here is a look at the major illnesses that can occur as a
result of smoking.
Cigarette smoking has been linked to many illnesses, including heart'
disease and stroke. Smoking can cause coronary heart disease, which
results from atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries. Toxins inthe blood
from smoking cigarettes contribute to the development of
alherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a progressive hardening of the '
arteries caused by the deposit of fatty plaques and the scarring and
thickening of the artery wall. Inflammation of the artery wall and the
development of blood clots can obstruct blood flow and cause, heart
"attacks or strokes.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death and was among the first
diseases linked to smoking, says the Surgeon General. Cigarette
smoking is responsible for most cases of dealh in conjunction wilh
cancer. It can cause lung cancer as well as cancers in the moulh, throat
and bladder. Men who smoke are more likely to develop lung cancer than
their female counterparts -- yet the. risk is high regardless of age or sex.
Smoking can affect reproduction and fertility in a number of ways. It
has been shown that smoking can make it harder for women to get
pregnant. Should a woman get pregnant, smoking can cause many

Smoking contributes to a number of health problems, including
heart disease, cancer, reproductive problems and more.
problems to the fetus and complicate the pregnancy. Pregnant women
who smoke are more likely to have placental abruption, where the
placenta prematurely separates from the wall of-the uterus. This can lead
to preterm delivery, stillbirth or early infant death. In babies who make it to
term, smoking can cause low birth weight and birth defects. Yet despite
these warnings, only 20 to 25 percent of women quit smoking upon
learning they are pregnant, says the CDC.
COMMIT TO QUIT
Nicotine is a very potent chemical. Some argue that it produces a
greater physical addiction than heroin or cocaine. Nicotine produces a
feeling of euphoria in smokers. Once the drug reaches the brain, it can
cause a calming and soothing feeling, which is what draws many people
back for more. Yet, smoking can be stopped It you are committed to
quitting. There are a number ol nicotine replacement products available
that can help you gradually wean off of cigarettes. Just keep in mind that it
can take up to 72 hours for full nicotine detoxification to take place in the
body -- releasing you from the physical withdrawal svmploms. Hov~aer,.
"the 'mental dependence could be'bqually'as'strdng'. "
Quilling smoking at any stage in your smoking career provides
immediate health benefits. Your chances for contracting diseases drop
and, with time, your lungs can gradually heal themselves and function
properly again. For help in quiling, visil the American Cancer Society at
www.cancer.org, or the American Lung Association at www.lungusa.org.
