and approximately five
miles north of the
Lafayette, Taylor County
line off US 27.
Since it was first dis-
cussed in 2005, this new


plant, called Taylor Ener-

massive controversy. It is
an ongoing heated debate
among the citizens of Per-

the effects of which can

Three Lafayette County school.



teachers nationally certified

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter


The achievements made
by the Lafayette County
School District (LCSD)
each year continue to
mount. Whether its im-
proving scores on the
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test, winning
home and away games, or
students being awarded
for various types of
achievement, LCSD is al-
ways very proud of the
ways in which its students,
teachers, staff, and coaches
not only shine among oth-
er schools, but also how
they represent the school
in various competitive
events.
Just recently, LCSD rel-
ished in another milestone.
Lorri Swafford, who cur-
rently teaches seventh
grade geography and
eighth grade United States
History at Lafayette High
School (LHS), became na-
tionally certified in the
field of education. She
joins two other teachers
who attained the same cer- ,,
tification, Jeff Scott and


afford. Phoo: Ira Mikell


Connie Pearson. "I feel
very blessed and grateful
to everyone who helped
and supported me," Swaf-
ford said.
National certification, the,
highest certification any
teacher can attain, posed
quite a challenge to Swaf-
ford, Pearson, and Scott.
Despite the rigorous work
involved, they succeeded


in achieving their goal of
becoming nationally certi-
fied through much faith,
patience, perseverance,
diligence, and leaning on
each other for support.
According to The Na-
tional Board for Profes-
-sional Teaching Standards
(NBPTS), the process of
achieving national certifi-
cation is voluntary which


can take awhile to finish.
"National Board Certifica-
tion is achieved through a
rigorous, performance-
based assessment that typi-
cally takes more than a
year to complete and mea-'
sures what accomplished'
teachers should know and
be able to do," said James

Hurst, many family members, as
well as church family and friends
were present, as pastor George

the gift and later expressed his
gratitude to his church family.
Although Hurst has resigned
'from the position of deacon, he
and wife Margaret continue to
worship and serve faithfully in
the Hatch Bend community
andit at Hatch'Bend Baptist
Church.,

The Rotary Club of Mayo held its annual Christmas Party
on Friday, Dec. 15, at Alton Church of God's Family Life
Center. A delicious meal for the party was catered by Pat
Gaylord. Those in attendance enjoyed Christmas music
along with a special visit from Santa who delivered pre-
sents to all of the children. Rotarians and their partners
also enjoyed playing a gift exchange game of "Dirty San-
ta" which brought much laughter from the crowd.

America's kids are at increased health risk from lack of exercise


Younger children, say, up
through elementary school,
are so much at the mercy of
their environment that it's
not practical-or even
fair-to make them the fo-
cus of the weight-loss ef-
fort, even in those unusual
cases where they're the
only one overweight.
Imagine that such a child
call him Joey goes to
dinner with his family and
everyone orders their usual
favorites. But Joey, over-
weight and "dieting," has
to have some "lite" selec-
tion while everyone around
him indulges without limi-
tation. How fun is that?
But that's often precisely
what happens, to the point
of utter frustration for both
parent and child. I often see
families who want us to
"fix" an overweight child
after they've failed with
various approaches, from
cajolery to punishment to
outright policing the
pantry.
The candid response?
That isn't going to .work.
Joey can't function in isola-
tion from the rest of his fa-
milial structure, so if the
weight problem is going to
change, the structure has to
change; and that means it
changes for the parents as
well.

Little kids, little roles
One of the big break-
throughs families must
make is in determining the
roles and responsibilities of
each family member, rela-
tive to the child's weight
loss, and that varies with
the age of the child. Since
we're discussing younger
children here, the parents'
role is much larger.
As with the research
study, parents in our pro-
gram learn -often for the
first time-about important
fundamentals of nutrition.
.. They also,. learn about be-
havior' modification, prob-
lem solving and other
skills, And they get specific
guidance and support
about family roles and lim-
its of responsibility.


For instance, most par-
ents worry about ongoing
conflicts with their children
over what to eat. And sure,
when snack time comes, if
you have a box of choco-
latey-gooey marshmallow
cookies and a box of crispy,
fat-free rye crackers, most
kids are going for the goo.
But this is where parental
responsibility looms large,
and parents' decisions
about the home environ-
ment are so significant.
Children ought to be given.
some choice in 'what they
want to eat, but by having
only good options at hand,
parents set them up for suc-
cess.
If the available snack
choices are fresh fruits,
maybe vegetables and dip,
even low-fat or low-calorie
munchables like pretzels or
popcorn, kids will choose
from those.
If parents don't buy the
gooey gunk and bring it
home, then kids .don't see it,
don't ask for it, and don't
feel deprived when they're
told no. Mom and Dad
won't, have to play the
heavy because these pas-
sive controls minimize the
risk of conflict for every-
one.
Of course, sometimes,
less choice is: better. If
there's a box ,of .fat-free ice
cream bars in the freezer,
that's a treat, and at dessert
time, it's an acceptable in-
dulgence that a child will
welcome with delight.' A
seven- or eight-year old is-
n't going to turn up his
nose at a 90-calorie Healthy
Choice dessert pop and go
on strike until someone
produces a Twinkie.

Play together, weigh to-
gether
Other recent research on
children and body weight
shows a direct correlation
between .kids weight and
the amount of time they
spent in recreational physi-
cal activity, not with friends
or peers, but with, their
families.
We see much in the me-,.

dia about the loss of physi-
cal education programs in
schools, but these opportu-


, cities for exercise and activ-
ity don't appear to have as
strong a correlation with
kids' weight as what they
do with their parents.
That could be because we
learn our values from our


families, typically, not our
schools. Even if kids sit
around in school all day,


the ones who go home to
enjoy a bike ride with the
family or to play a little flag
football with Dad are far
more likely to consider
themselves as active.
It's a question of lifestyle

and self-image. Children
who engage in physical
pursuits with their parents
are statistically far more
likely to have a positive at-
titude about physical recre-
ation and exercise, and to
participate in it outside the
family setting.
Parents basically have all
the power in a small child's
life. If healthy changes are
introduced with some fi-
nesse, no issue need even
be made of them. The new
standards just become the
standards. We only eat
dessert twice a week. We
don't drive if we can walk.
We eat vegetables every
day. We don't drink soda
with dinner. That's just the
way it is.
It doesn't mean children
won't ever try a challenge.
In fact, count on it that they
will. One of the Cederquist
daughters recently pro-
duced a piece of candy first
thing in the morning and
sweetly asked if she could
eat it, though she undoubt-
edly knew the answer al-


ready.

Through Thick & Thin
Parents are usually aware
that their own dietary
habits are relevant to their
child's weight, but they of-
ten want to corhpartmental-
ize, saying they're not con-
cerned about their own
weight, only worried about
their child. They just want
to help fix him. But a child
needs a solution where he's
not considered .the prob-
lem.

PAGE 6A THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2007


The Baker's Mill fire was a tragic event,
and another conflagration about that
same time destroyed a large portion of
a whole city block on the north side of
main street in the town of Mayo. It is
entirely possible that I have these events in reverse
order, mia culpa.
The Mayo fire devastated some of the landmark
businesses on Main Street, Mayo. The old wooden
building that housed Leb's bar and pool room was
destroyed. Birchfield's pharmacy was gutted along
with Hatfield's Dry Goods, although the building
survived. Williams Grocery, Croft's Barber Shop, Abe
Albert's Department store, and some others that I
can't seem to recall. Many of these buildings were
owned by the R.K. Taylor family and I believe that
Mr. Sid Edwards owned some of them also. Mr.
Williams was able to remove his merchandise before
the fire destroyed the building and he moved it.
across the street where my daddy had made room in
his hardware store.
Some folks were placed on top of the hardware
store to extinquise any flying embers that may have
landed on the roof and the possibility of it catching
fire was thus eliminated. Those places of businesses
were reopened once new buildings were
erected but the curb service once of-
fered at Birchfield's Drug Store A itA

was never reinstated. Before the fire a person could
park in front at an angle and Corky Turnage would
promptly appear and take your order for cokes from
the soda fountain which were brought out in good
time with a tray placed on your car door to hold
them and collect the 5 cents due for each one.
Besides the familiar sound of the whistle at Baker's
mill on week days, the ringing of the bells at the local
churches on Sunday was also a regular occurrence.
At the Mayo Baptist Church, Guy McClain was the
person who did the ringing on Sunday morning to
announce the start of Sunday School with the church
service to follow. I always arranged to be a little ear-
ly so that why Guy would start ringing the bell, I
would be allowed to experience the thrill of riding up
and down the rope as it rang.
The church bell also served another purpose, it
gave the alarm in case of fire and it would ring inces-
santly until there was a response. Mayo had a fire de-
partment of sbrts at that time. It is hard to imagine
that in the twentieth century a community of this size
was dependent upon such and antiquated system,
but to compose the debacle, the water supply system
for the town was woefully inadequate. I remember
well the little black tank that sat upon the support
near the same spot where it's replacement, a more
modern, larger system sat for many years at the cor-


ner of the town park near the .
highway as it made it's way
west out of town.
The black tank would hold
about 4 or 5 thousand gallons 11,
by my estimation and the
new one, which also required
newer and larger pumping
capacity, would hold 25 thou-
sand gallons. I had the oppor- i
tunity to examine that tank -
quite thoroughly many times --'..-. ..
as it sat high on it's supports. 0.A. Winburn
I was fascinated by the chal- ScrubHammock@aol.com
lenge it posed, such a high
and magnificent edifice. Standing on the very top one
could see for many miles and it was the occasion of
an awesome experience for a young lad of my age.
This adventure was suddenly stopped one day as I
stepped down off the ladder after descending. My
daddy was there, waiting. .1 don't recall ever having
the desire to do that again for some reason.
The fire department mentioned earlier consisted of
a two wheeled cart with some 3 inch hose wound
around a reel and ,a nozzle or something resembling










one hanging on a rod on each side. In a little metal'
box suspended from the rear was a tool for opening
the fire hydrant. It was always in it's place and readi-
ly accessible except for a few occasions when it had
to be located. A long tongue extended from the front
so that some sort of locomotion could be attached.
That source consisted of whoever responded first at
that little tin building which was never locked as it
sat on the street between the present town offices
building and Croft's grocery was later built. Leb Tay-
lor was the first one there many times and someone
would sit in the trunk of his car and hold the tongue
of that little cart as Leb motored towards the fire.
In response to a call for help during the conflagra-
tion mentioned earlier that destroyed much property
in Mayo, fire fighting units were sent from as afar
away as Gainesville. Unfortunately, the unit from
Gainesville got lost somehow and never made it. Live
Oak and Perry sent men and firefighting equipment
which eventually brought the fire under control.
Some years had passed without much progress in
the fire fighting department but the arrival of a pump
truck, painted fire engine red and generously donat-
ed by a local paper company provided the basis for
what was to become a more efficient and better orga-
nized volunteer fire department, one equipped with
at least a bit of more modern firefighting equipment.

Cold-shooting


Hornets fall hard


at Taylor County
by Ed'Taylor
Sports Correspondent

The shooting of the Lafayette Hornets was as cold as
the weather was outside at Taylor County High School
last Thursday night. The cool shooting proved to be the
down fall of the Hornets as Taylor County had their way
in a 77-55 win. It appeared the Hornets were still on the
bus when tip off finally arrived. "We did not play well at
all," said Hornet coach Derek Garland. "We just wasn't
in the game. I thought we played better in the second
half."
A second half improvement was not enough after
falling behind big time at the onset of the game. Tailing
19-7 after the initial quarter, Lafayette saw that lead more
than double in the second period. In the first six minutes
of the second stanza, the Hornets could not buy a basket,
even underneath. Poor shot selection and not being able,
to handle the basketball against the quickness of the Bull-
dogs defense led to a 43-9 disadvantage. The Hornets

Less than two minutes
into the game it was clear
that Jonathan Edwards came
to play basketball at Dixie
County last Friday night.
After a dismal performance
against Taylor County the
night before, Edwards came
out with the hot hand for
coach Derek Garland the
Hornets. He scored eight of
his team's first 10 points en
route to a 57-47 win over the
host Bears.
"Jonathan played well for
us tonight,"-said Coach Gar-
land. "As he goes we go as a
team. U we get that inside
presence we usually play
well."
Edwards led the Hornets
scoring parade, that includ-
ed three players in double
figures, with 20 points. He
had seven rebounds to go
with his point production.
Eric McIntyre added 17
points and Jonathan Sellers
netted 14. Jamal Reid, who
did not score, had seven re-
bounds and dished off three
assists.
The Hornets opened the
game with a lot of ball
movement that kept Dixie
County off stride. "I think

The Lafayette Lady Hornets closed out
a very successful regular season with a
convincing win over a determined Dixie
County team last Friday night. The Lady
Hornets came away with a solid 75-45
win over the host Lady Bears completing
the 2006-07 regular season. The win gave
coach Jimmy Blankenship's ballclub a
sparkling 21-2 record. Both losses came at
the hands of North Florida Christian out'
of Tallahassee.
Lafayette used a 20-0 run in the first
quarter to set the tone for the game and
never was threatened. The game was tied
once'and that came at 2-2. The Lady Bears
did not get another field goal until the
1:59 mark of the first period. Washington


make it a 22-7 game. The Lady Hornets
led 27-7 at the first stop.
Coach Blankenship said the end of the
regular season was welcomed. "We are
glad to get it over with," he said. "We did
not want to come in here and get anyone
injured with the district tournament com-
ing up." The Lafayette coach said coming
off a loss to North Florida on Tuesday
night was a let down for his team. "It was
a let down but we came out tonight and
got it going: We did not want to get any-
one injured and just wanted to get this
game over with," he said. "We got to play
a lot of kids and get them involved. That
helps the morale of the team. We wanted

What is the old saying:
"A win is a win, no matter
how it comes!"
Lafayette junior varsity
basketball coach Mike Har-
ris will take them anyway
he can get them but he
wonders if his team can
stand prosperity at all. "We
had a carbon copy of the
game against Taylor Coun-
ty the other night," said
Harris, who's junior Hor-
nets squandered a big lead
but did pull out the win at
Taylor County. "We had a
20 point lead against Dixie
County and let them right
back in the game. But the
guys played well and we
got the win."
The win, a 62-56 edging


of a good Dixie County ju-
nior varsity team was the
10th win in the last 11
games for the Hornets. Af-
ter falling to Suwannee two
weeks ago, the Hornets
have won their last two out-
ings and are 10-7 on the sea-
son.
Eighth-grader Kade Bell
tossed in a game high 22
points in leading the Hor-
nets balanced scoring. Zach
Fleming hit double figures
with 13 points and Antwan
Brown scored 10.
The Hornets opened with
the hot hand in the first pe-
riod opening up a 20 point
advantage they almost
squandered. Lafayette led
23-5 at the first stop and
took a 37-17 half time lead.
It was the third period that
was almost the down fall of


points


the Hornets. Struggling of-
fensively, the Hornets saw
the 20 point deficit cut to
four at the end of three pe-
riods. "That seems to be the
pattern for this team of
late," said Coach Harris.
"We just can't seem to
stand having a big lead and
holding it."
Down by 18 points going
into the third quarter, the
shots were not falling for
the Hornets as Dixie went
on a 16-5 run that narrowed
the margin to four, 42-39.
Mental mistakes proved
costly for the Hornets as
they failed to take care of
the basketball. Poor shot se-
lection did not help either.
Dixie played close in the
early going of the fourth

nice turnaround 10-foot
jumper followed by McIn-
tyre's basket at the 6:06
-i mark and a 6-0 Lafayette
lead. The Hornets defense
truly was better than the
previous night in holding
the Bears to a single field
goal and a free throw in the
first quarter and a 16-3 first
quarter lead.
Lafayette led by as many
as 13 points mid way of the
second quarter but a 6-0
run let the Bears back in the
game at 23-16. Lafayette
had problems completing
plays underneath the bas-
ket. "We let them hang
around missing some easy


shots in the second quar-
ter," said Garland. "But I
was proud of the defense."
With 6:08 to play in the
game, Sergio Perez's tip-in
gave the Hornets their
biggest lead of the game, 15
points with 6:08 to play.
The Bears had no quit in
them and battled back to
close the difference to just
eight points. But it was not
enough to catch the Hor-
nets in a final 57-47 win.
"We didn't handle the
pressure well and that is
the reason they got back in
the game," said Coach Gar-
land. "We were a little fa-
tigued. We tried to rotate a
lot of people. But I had to

quarter trailing 48-45 with
six minutes to play. A nice
inside move by Austin An-
derson for a basket and
Bell's three-point basket ex-
tended the lead back to
eight points. A 6-0 run by
the Bears made it a two
point game but Bell's bas-
ket in close and a short
jumper by Fleming to go
with a Devin Bellamy free
throw but the Hornets in
front 60-51.
Instead of holding the
ball with the clock running
down, the Hornets were
guilty of taking some ill-ad-
vised shots that allowed
Dixie to cut into that lead.
Three consecutive
turnovers allowed Bell to
make it a four point game,
60-56 on a three-point bas-
ket by Dix who led Dixie
with his 20 points.


The Hornets missed sev-
eral in-close baskets that
would have put the game
away much earlier. "If we
make our shots under the
basket," said Harris, "then
it would not even be close. I
don't know what it is about
this bunch. We played well
the first half but we strug-
gled in the second half."
Bellamy finished with
seven points for the Hor-
nets and Arthur Sellers
netted six. Anderson and
Austin Henderson fin-
ished with two points
each. Brown led the junior
Hornets in rebounds with
nine. He also had six steals
in the game. Bell pulled in
six caroms, dished off five
assists and came away
with four steals. Sellers
played a strong floor game
with his five assists. Flem-
ing had six rebounds in
the win.

This is a new day! The LHS boy's soccer team has real-
ly taken its game to the next level. For the past four
weeks the Hornets have been working very hard, and
they earned their place in the district tournament with
the hopes of continuing on to the finals. One critical
thing needed to happen, however, in order for this
dream to become a reality. The team had to win against
Saint Francis Catholic School in the first game of the dis-
trict tournament.
The challenge was great since this was the only team in
the district that the Hornet soccer team had not been able
to beat. They accepted that challenge, and they began to
prepare for that win. Their motto became "It is not the

trailed 45-18 at the half.
Taylor County buried nine
three-point baskets in the
game. -
In the second half the
Hornets seemed more fo-
cused as they cut into the
27 point deficit behind the
play of Jonathan Edwards
and Eric McIntyre. The
prosperous moment did
not last too long as Taylor
County regrouped and
rolled back to a 30 point
lead and led by 26 points
after three quarters. Darren
Power had two nice bas-
kets back-to-back at the
start of the final period. He
accounted for two of the
Hornets three field goals in
the last quarter.
The loss dropped the


Hornets to 7-12 on the sea-
son as they prepare to go
into District Tournament
play next week at Bronson.
McIntyre was the only
double figure scorer for
Lafayette with his 16'
points. He had four three-
point baskets in the game.
Kevin Waters, who came
off the bench, played a
strong game and finished
with seven points. Waters
had a good night on the
boards as well with five re-
bounds. Jonathan Sellers
and Powe finished with
five points each. Edwards,
who was held below his
scoring average, finished
with four as did Sergio
Perez. Jody Watson added
six points. Jamal Reid and
James Dees scored two
points each.

will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the
difference." The boys took this challenge very seriously,
and they took this goal to heart.
When Tuesday, January 22 came around the Hornet
team was very conscious of the importance of this game
and the need to win in order to move to the next level.
Early in the game the Hornet team scored one goal that
put Saint Francis in a bind. In the second half, 'despite St.
Francis' many efforts to tie the game, the Hornets
swarmed all over the field, finishing with a solid 4-1 win.
I am extremely proud of the boys and their desire to
make the Hornet soccer team visible in the district. The
boys went back to Ocala to play Oak Hall last Friday
night for the district championship, and they took second
place as the runner-ups, advancing to play in the region-
al playoffs.
It is impressive that these young men in their first true
season of district competition have gone this far. I would
like to thank the parents and fans for their support of
these young athletes. We would like to extend a special
thanks to Mrs. Mary Koon and to the LHS teachers for
collecting money that enabled the team to have a nice
meal before the game. As always, we would like to
thank Mr. McGrew for his leadership and his faithful
support for the program.

to finish the regular season on a high note"
Coach Blankenship said his team will regroup and fo-
cus for the Second Season. "Our focus now is the district
tournament and the state playoffs," said the Lady Hornet
mentor. "Our mission is trying to get to Lakeland (site of
the state tournament)."
The Lady Hornets owned a 44-21 half time lead which
allowed Coach Blankenship to go to his bench early and
often. The biggest lead for the Lady Hornets was 35
points and that came in the final quarter.
Junior guard Natalie Land tossed 17 points for
Lafayette. She also had seven rebounds, six assists and
came up with 12 steals. Sunshine Reid finished with 12
points and had seven boards and six assists in the win.
Lillie Prine came away with a strong defensive game and
added eight points.
Sharhonda Cherry and eighth-grader Cartesha Macklin
finished in double figures. Macklin netted 11 points and
Cherry added 10. Macklin had four rebounds and one as-
sist. Senior Marla Alcazar scored six points with Kelsey
Land scoring five. Sophomore Takisha Cherry netted
four points. Ana Monroy had two points in the win.

DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
Lafayette will begin tournament play tonight as the
number one seed. They will face the winner of the Bran-
ford-Bronson winner. Lafayette handled both teams
rather easily during the regular season. But Coach
Blankenship said you cannot take anything for granted
and you have to prepare well. "It is a big game because it
a district tournament game. If we win Thursday night
(tonight) we are set for the playoffs," he said. "It is not
going to be hard.to get the girls up. If it is Branford, that
is a rivalry that has been going on for 15 years. If it is
Bronson they will get up for that because they under-
stand that the district is important. We want to get on a
good roll and go to the state playoffs."
Coach Blankenship said his team is basically where he
wants it to be going into the tournament. "We have some
mental things we need to work on," he said. "We have to
cut back on our turnovers. It is not that the other team is
causing us to turn the ball over but we are creating the
turnovers ourselves. We have some things we need to
put in. We need to work on our man offense. I am happy
with our growth this year. We will be ready."
The Lady Hornets face either Branford or Bronson
tonight in a scheduled 6 p.m. tip off at Trenton High
School.

for NBPTS.
What led Swafford to
pursuing national certifi-
cation was her love for
learning new things and
discovering more ways of
helping students to learn
the curriculum. "I truly
love to learn new things so
this was an opportunity to
do that and it was a per-
sonal challenge to myself.
I had read that this
process required you to
think outside the box, ex-
amine your teaching style,
and reflect on what you
could do better," Swafford
said.
Swafford advises that,
before you decide to apply
for national certification,
that you do plenty of re-
search about it. She also
encourages you to find
someone who has already
'A been through the process
who can help you through
each step.
Before she began teach-
ing at LHS, Swafford
taught Pre-K at Lafayette
Elementary, and, before
that, she was a substitute
teacher. She has been em-
ployed in the Lafayette
County school system
since 1990, the same year
she received her teaching
degree from the Universi-
ty of Florida.
Other achievements in-
clude being chosen as a
Distinguished Educator
for UF, and attaining NA-
EYC (National Accredida-
tion for the Education of
Young Children) certifica-
tion with Salina Pearson'
while teaching Pre-K.


Scott received national
certification in 2004, fol-
lowed by Pearson in 2005.
Scott currently teaches-sec-
ond grade at LES. He pre-
viously taught at Lafayette
Elementary as a Physical
Education teacher and as a
second grade teacher.
Scott said he is very thank-
ful for the national certifi-
cation because it has
helped him improve his
teaching skills. "This ac-
complishment was hard
work, but it helped me to
analyze my teaching tech-
niques and practices to be-
come a more accom-
plished teacher," Scott
said.
Pearson is currently em-
ployed as a sixth grade
teacher. Previously, she
taught in a K-1 and second
grade classes. Pearson stat-
ed that going through the
process of becoming na-
tionally certified has
helped her become a better
teacher. "The process
helped me to remember to
focus on my students
which is sometimes diffi-
cult with the many re-
quirements from the state.
I love my students and I
do feel that I am better at
helping students to be part
of a learning community
than I was before I began,"
Pearson said.
Melissa Moseley, who
previously taught at LHS,
and is now employed by
the Suwannee County
School District in the ad-
ministrative department,
achieved national certifica-
tion as well, in 2005, while
being employed by the
Lafayette County School
Board.

Those opposing the
plant disagree. They be-
lieve the effects from it
will do greater harm to the
environment than the ben-
efits it will produce. One
such opponent is Diane
Whitfield who is a Taylor
County resident. Accord-
ing to Whitfield, coal
plants produce an abun-
dance of carbon dioxide
that pollutes the air. "The
coal plant proposed is 800
megawatts big and will

that it would take over
800,000 acres of young
planted pines to absorb a
year's worth," Whitfield
said.
Capital Medical Society,
based in Tallahassee, is
also adamantly against its
construction and warns
those in favor of it, as well
as residents who will be in
its wake, of the dire health
effects that will be pro-
duced. "From a healthcare
point of view, we are op-
posed to a coal-fired pow-
er plant in our area be-

tients who have lung and

cause it increases the inci-
dence of both respiratory
conditions and neurologic

In addition, according to
CMS, the pollutants that
are emitted from the plant
do not respect state or
county lines.
Advocates of the plant
contend that it will bring
additional jobs, revenue,
and produce byproducts
that local businesses can
use. Exam-
ave stated that ples of these

Whitfield has attended
many of the meetings in
which the coal plant has
been debated. When asked
if .she was aware of any-
one from Lafayette County
in attendance, she said'
that she has not seen any
residents or county offi-
cials come and participate.
But added, that she hopes
to see citizens of Lafayette
County start to come out
and attend the meetings
and voice their concerns.

Wounds of War: Scars come home


"... being a Marine makes it a lot
harder to admit that you can't
handle something."

By Eric Reinagel
CNHI News Service

Surgeons at Bethesda Naval Hos-
pital prepared to drill a hole in Lance
Cpl. Bret McCauley's badly swollen
head to relieve pressure on his brain
when he unexpectedly awoke from a
two-week coma.
"Hold up one finger for me," Mc-
Cauley recalls someone saying.
He held up his middle finger "and
from that instant they knew I would be
OK."
OK in the sense that he would sur-
vive severe wounds suffered when a suicide
car bomber rammed his military convoy out-
side Fallujah, Iraq, on Sept. 6, 2004, setting
off 500 pounds of explosives and killing sev-
en fellow Marines.
But not all right when the trauma of that
tragedy, and other war scenes kept flashing i
back through McCauley's mind like a horror .
movie on rewind during his recovery.
Nightmares, hallucinations, helplessness,
paranoia, depression and guilt about surviv- y .
ing when others didn't. McCauley said he ex-
perienced all of these mental demons and
more during his struggle to get back to nor-
mal. Pfc. Hea
It is a condition known as Post Traumatic macrosir
Stress Disorder, first recognized during the
Vietnam War era and now diagnosed frequentlN
among troops returning from Iraq. Head in-
juries, doctors say, can make the condition
worse.
McCauley's life was saved by modern mil-
itary medicine and a fast-responding team of
medics, nurses, doctors and pilots. They re-
moved his spleen and a kidney in Iraq before
airlifting him to a regional hospital in Ger-
i many to stabilize his wounds, then to Bethes-
da for additional treatment and recovery.,
But the bomb blast had sent McCauley fly-
ing from the open back of a truck, striking
his head hard against the ground and causing
it to gradually inflate to the size of a basket-
ball.
A tumor-like blood clot known technical-
ly as a subdural hematoma formed inside
his head, putting intense pressure on his
brain and causing him to lose consciousness.
Surgery removed the blood clot. It did not
fix the mental anguish the 23-year-old Mc-
Cauley, of Kokomo, Ind., said accompanied Pic. Heatl
his condition. Mental anguish that eventually are brief
moved him to wonder if the military even are being
cared about his recurrent thoughts of trauma.
Maj. Gen. George W..Weightman, medical
director and commander of the U.S. Army Medical Cen-
ter and School at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, said Mc-
Cauley's state of mind was predictable. He said more
than one in three soldiers who come back from Iraq face
post-combat mental health issues.


A primary reason, he said, is that Iraq veteranss are more
likely\ to ha\ e witnessed d someone getting wounded or killed
from impro\ ised explosive de% ices, the weaponn of choice
for rebel insurgents and terrorists.
"Think about \ hat \ ar is. said Weightman. ""It is send-
ing a normal person into a \erN abnormal situation. Death
and serious inljur\ are \er\ traumatic things to ha\e to deal
\\ lh "
Military\ procedure calls for treating Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder as soon as it is recognized And
often, said Weightman, that means in the %\ar
zone Especially \hen theie are significant ca-
sualties such as those from a roadside explosive

Loved ones play major role in managing


rheumatoid arthritis


The stressful feeling of a visit to the doctor is familiar to many
rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. The help and support of
friends and family may be crucial to alleviating these fears.

"Arthritis is a chronic condition. Patients with a strong support
network tend to be in better control of the disease," said Dr. John
Klippel, CEO of the Arthritis Foundation.

The effects of RA are not always obvious to others,, although
this common form of arthritis impacts more than two million
people in the U.S. alone. Chronic inflammation in the lining of
joints can lead to decreased range of motion, fatigue and
permanent joint damage.

While loved ones cannot reduce the painful symptoms of RA,
they can be important partners in managing the disease. Third
parties can help patients recall important information and
instructions, as well as help guide the discussion with healthcare
providers. In fact, studies have shown that 20 to 50 percent of
what is said in the doctor's office is forgotten.

RA can be especially humbling for people who want to be
independent, leaving them feeling embarrassed or reluctant to
engage those closest to them. By creating a network of friends
and family who can offer assistance, an RA patient doesn't have
to rely on any one individual for help. Following are some tips to
help create a successful support team:

Tell friends, coworkers and family precisely the help needed.

Develop a list of friends and family who are willing to help.

Keep a detailed calendar to schedule specific task. s "


-~:3 ~


*"'.45 S
~ ~ h


e.4


While loved ones cannot reduce the painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, they can
serve as a support network and offer assistance
Use professional services for physically challenging tasks like
mowing the lawn or cleaning gutters.

The peace of mind that comes with knowing that someone is
always available to offer encouragement, companionship and
assistance allows RA patients to face their condition with less
worry.

The Arthritis Foundation's "Let's Talk RA" campaign,
sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb, is designed to improve
communication between those living with RA and their
rheumatologists. The campaign also includes a free
communication guide, which can be ordered by calling 800-568-
4045 or visiting arthritis.org.

Medics


Continued From Page 1C
Later he was transferred
from Bethesda to the Indi-
anapolis Veterans Hospital
in his home state of Indiana,
allowing him to be closer to
family and friends. It was
here, he said, that he first
talked to a military doctor
about Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder. He did not con-
fide in anyone else.
Then, McCauley said, he
was sent to Camp Pendle-
ton, Calif., the home base of
his Marine unit, and given
the impression he was well
enough to recover on his
own. That's when his mis-
givings began to bubble up
about the military methods
of treating post-combat
stress. Yet, he admitted, he
still didn't say anything to
anybody.
"My unit didn't even
know I was coming back,"
said McCauley. "They stuck
me in a room by myself,
and pretty much just left me
there."
McCauley didn't recall
precisely how long his soli-
tary recovery went on "a
month, five or six weeks...
staring at bare walls" but
he said during that time he
became addicted to
painkillers, and continued to
suffer from terrifying flash-
backs.
Fellow Marines would
come by his room once or
twice a week, but McCauley
said he never asked them
,for help.
"I didn't know if they
didn't know, how bad of
shape I was in," he said.
"Some of that you could
construe as being my fault
because ... being a Marine
makes it a lot harder to ad-
mit that you can't handle
something."
Marines, McCauley said,
are "taught'to suck it up,
suck it up, quit being a
blank blank blank blank
blank. That is drilled into
us; you keep going no mat-
ter what. A little pain is nor-
mal. So we don't say any-
thing."
Weightman, one of the
Army's top medical offi-
cers, said reluctance to ask
for assistance is due to the
stigma connected with psy-
chiatric recovery problems
in the macho culture of the
military.
"We are trying to take
that stigma away," said
Weightman. "If I had a
sprained ankle, I would go
seek care for it. So why not
seek help if I'm having.
nightmares or I fly off the
handle a lot quicker than I
used to?"
The New England Journal.
of Medicine studied the is-
sue two years ago, estimat-
ing that between 15 and 17
percent of U.S. soldiers who
served in Iraq suffered from
mental disorders but only
half of them sought care
upon returning home.
Brig. Gen. Michael J.
Kussman, a medical doctor
and a top official with the
Veterans Health Administra-
tion, said the military is
aware of the problem, and
has made psychological re-
habilitation of war-tested
soldiers a primary concern.
He said poly-trauma cen-
ters to treat veterans with
severe physical and mental
wounds have been strategi-
cally established in Min-
neapolis, Minn., Palo Alto,
Calif., Richmond, Va., and
Tampa, Fla. Additional cen-
ters will be built, he said, as
the need increases.
"We are quite prepared to


take care of any veteran
who comes to see us," said
Kussman.
Some of the best proven
therapy, both Weightman
and Kussman said, can
come from talking with oth-
er soldiers who have been
through the trauma of war.
In McCauley's case, that
proved to be the right medi-
cine.
The Indiana Marine said
he finally opened up to his


father, Greg McCauley,
about his post-combat
stress. His father, in turn,
called an officer he had met
at the Bethesda Naval Hos-
pital while visiting his son
there. And the next morn-
ing, two Marines from Mc-
Cauley's command post
were in his room to talk
about his nightmares and
misgivings.
"I told them I needed
help," said McCauley. "I
couldn't take it anymore."
At first, he underwent


special counseling. But Mc-
Cauley said he didn't like
talking to the Navy psychia-
trist because "he didn't go
through what I went
through." He said he felt
better after talking it out
with Marines who had been
in combat,
"That's how I found clo-
sure," he said. "It was tough
talking about it again, but it
eventually got easier. It got
easier and easier the more I
talked about it."
That's the lesson Mc-


Cauley would like to pass
on to other soldiers who
suffer from post-combat
stress tied to the trauma of
war: don't internalize frus-
tration and anger. Let it out.
"Whether they try to
swallow it, it's eventually
going to come out," he said.
"Whether it's a month later,
five years later, 10 years lat-
er. Everybody eventually
deals with it and the longer
you wait, the worse it is."

hottest products on the market and as the fastest growing

earns $50,000 per year, with professionals earning $75,000 per
year and where the super stars are earning $100,000+ each and
every year. All you need is appearance, and the "gift of gab",
and we'll teach you everything you need to know to be
successful.

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
After adding an addition to our
house, my wife is convinced I never
finish any project. I worked hard on
everything except for the outside. I
bought the vinyl siding, but never got
around to installing it. That was nine
years ago. Now we're looking to sell
the house. During this process, I
found a unique tax loophole. It
seems our town doesn't reassess an
addition until the construction is
complete. Now I have no motivation
to finish the siding. My wife thinks
the house would sell better if the sid-
ing were installed, but I'm thinking
people would like a "handyman spe-
cial", especially if it's a "For Sale By
Owner". The addition is almost com-
plete, so I assume buyers won't
expect much of a price break.
Would I be better off finish-
ing the job I started or just
selling the house as is? I'd
give the new homeowners
all the siding in the garage!

Carry: Nine years to install siding?
That's some solid procrastination!
Cash: Whether you install the siding
or not, we think your wife won the argu-
ment about not finishing projects. After
nine years, completing the task now


Duane "Cash"
& Todd "C


probably isn't going to convince her
otherwise.
Carry: As for your house, your wife is
correct again. In most markets, potential
buyers like the idea of buying a finished
home and that includes the exterior. By
installing the siding, your house would
appear more attractive and be of interest
to more people. That would also allow
you to have a higher asking price.
Cash: Besides, your neighbors
would probably enjoy seeing your
house finished as well.
Carry: If you're having difficulty find-
ing the motivation to finish the job, con-
sider this. If you advertise your house
without the siding, as you predict, many


mIi3

Til C 'i B --09

people may consider it a handyman spe-
cial that needs a little TLC. Those peo-
ple will also want a considerable price
break for the work of doing it them-
selves or hiring a contractor.
Cash: Leaving the job unfinished
can cause other problems as well. At
the time of sale, you may run into
issues with your town related to your
building permit or taxes. Both of these
have the potential to create difficulties
during the closing.
Carry: If you have the time before
the sale, it's best to complete the job
you started. Besides with the siding on
the house, imagine how roomy your
garage will be.


Choosing Sides
Believe it or.not, the U.S Census
Bureau tracks the choice of exterior
wall materials for new houses.
According to their information, the use
of brick on newly built homes declined
from 32% in 1975 to only 20% in 2005.
Wood exteriors have declined as well,
from 36% to a mere 7%. However, oth-
ers have taken their place. The choice
of stucco has jumped from 10% to 22%
in the same time frame. And although.
vinyl siding wasn't tracked early on, its
use has increased from 23% in 1992 to
34% in 2005. In the Northeast, vinyl
siding is used on a whopping 83% of all
newly built homes.
It Can Be Taxing
The Tax Foundation, a nonprofit
research group, estimated the 2006 tax
burden for residents in each state. Their
research accounts for state income tax,
local property tax, sales tax and many
others. According to the estimates
Alaska, New Hampshire, and Delaware
were the cheapest three states to live in
with less than 8.4% of your annual
salary allocated toward taxes. Maine
(13.5%), New York (12.9%) and Ohio
(12%) were among the highest.

Final Notice
I'm the kind of guy who is very
organized. It came in handy when I
put an extension on my house. I was
able to subcontract most of the %work,
keep tabs on the schedule and track
all the bills. I'm always very prompt
in paying them on time.
Then I received one bill from the
electrician I hired that said. "Second
and Final Notice". I as horri field
since I ne\ er miss a pay ment and
needed his seri ices again in a few
weeks. I immediately called him up.
and apologized for my delay.
"I'm so sc'rr)," I pleaded. "I just
ne'er recent ed the first notice "
"Ididn't send one." he laughed. "I
find second notice, are much more
effective
