Howling winds and pounding rain, along
with a tornado watch that was in effect until 10
p.m. last Thursday, Feb. 1, could not prevent
members and guests of the Lafayette County
Farm Bureau from meeting together at 6 p.m. to

Every other week in .
the Alaio Free Press, we ".
ill continue to fea-
.ture new teachers and
staff members in no
particular order. This
. week we have chosen
to introduce Tracy ,
SGarrison.
Garrison works as
the Reading Coach for Tracy Garrison.
Latayette High School. Tracy Garrison.
, Although this is her
i first year of teaching at LHS, she says that she
thoroughly enjoys her job and looks forward to
many prosperous years to come
A firm believer in her students, Garrison uses
e every possible means of helping then-m to become
successful under her wings as well ac in their own
classrooms. According to Garrison, if children are
pro\ ided the right tools, they can achieve great
things while attending school and become whatev-
er they want to be later in life. 'I help each student
on an individual ba-is. Each student has strengths
and weaknesses, so my goal is to use the student's
Strengths to overcome the weakness," Garrison
said.
Another goal she constantly tries to achieve
ever\ day is to instill in her students the love of
school and a strong desire to alwa\ s strive to im-
prove themselves. Garrison strongly believes that
the best place to improve your education is school.
Before she was hired by the Lafayette County
School Board this \ear. Garrison was employed for
.several years at First Federal Savings Bank as a
Teller at the lMavo branch .md was busy process-
ing loans in the Lake City branch.
Garrison attended Suwannee Elementary \West,
Suwannee Middle School, and Suwannee High
School. She received her teaching degree from
Saint Leo Uruversity in 2006.

Boyd and Kevin Doyle, Representative for Sena-
tor Mel Martinez as well as Farm Bureau's new-
ly elected State President John Hoblick to name


a few.
Several qf the items that were discussed were
agri-tourism, Greenbelt tax assessments and en-
ergy tax relief. Locals Chris and Kelly Lyons,
Chris Vann and Keith Shiver accepted a mini
grant from Farm Bureau. to Lafayette 4-H for
Ag Literacy Day.

Prepare now! Don't wait!


Heavy storm activity possible, now through April


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

A powerful cold front
that proved unrelentless
caused damage to numer-
ous homes and flooded
streets along its trek across
the state, leaving as many
as 19 people dead last
week. Most of the damage
occurred in the central por-
tion of Florida and the sur-
rounding areas.
Many of the homes that
were affected were either
flattened or blown to
pieces by several tornadoes
and very strong winds.
On a local level,
Lafayette County received
a steady dose of soaking
rain and heavy winds, but
no loss of life or, property'
damage, according to Don-
nie Land, Emergency Man-
agement Operations Direc-
tor for Lafayette County.
"We did not have any dam-
age reported in Lafayette
County. The county was
fortunate that the severe
weather passed to the
northwest and southeast of
us," Land said.
Preparation for this type
of weather is just as impor-
tant as preparing for other
dangerous weather situa-
tions such as hurricanes,
according to Land. "We are
just entering the most dan-
gerous part of the year for
the development of the .


more powerful tornadoes:
F2, F3, and F4s," Land said.
This period of activity lasts
from February until April.
Land encourages local
residents to begin prepar-
ing now, rather than wait
until a tornado touches
down in our county. He
suggests that you purchase
a weather radio that will
sound an alarm when se-
vere weather approaches
so you can be prepared to
move to safety. "A NOAA
Weather Radio with a tone


alert feature will allow you
to receiire warnings issued
by the National Weather
Service anytime day or
night," Land said.
Another important part
of preparation for torna-
does is to have a plan in
place. Land says that you
need to know where you
are going to take shelter
should you receive a warn-
ing, whether from the
NOAA Weather Radio or
from the three sirens in
Mayo that is part of what

Another way of helping those in need


Linda Smith
The "McKinney Vento
Act" what is it? Well, that is
exactly what Mary Ann
McCray, Title I Migrant
Advocate explained to Ro-
tarians at the weekly meet-
ing on January 31.
McCray, working.
through the Lafayette
County School System,
works to help those chil-
dren who qualify .for aid
through this program.
These children may range
in ages 3-21. This grant. ap-
plies to children who are af-
fected by extreme poverty
and therefore unable to
meet the demands of doing
their school work properly,
having the supplies they
need etc.
McCray explained that in
Lafayette County as of the
day she presented the pro-
gram there were 126 chil-
dren in our county that
qualified. Lafayette County
has 18% of its population
considered at or below
poverty level. (Using 2004


census). The state of Florida
has 18.5%, so that shows
the need in our county
pretty well.
McCray said she wanted
to point out that most of
these children affected are
from "working" families.
They work and earn an in-
come but the income is not
nearly enough. According
to McCray many of these
children move around a lot,
not only due to migrant
work, but changes in fami-
ly status, parents or parent
may be incarcerated or di-
vorced and just a single
parent and the child has to
live with first one relative
then another. Often times,
McCray said, there are sev-
eral families living in small
places, sometimes having
no heat and not enough
blankets or food and often
not very good living condi-
tions. These children often'
don't get enough meals ex-
cept through the lunch pro-
gram provided at the
school. Very often they


don't have the money for
school supplies, or field
trips, or many other neces-
sities to complete their
school work and activities
that other kids may have.
All of these things ac-
cording to McCray are the
things that she deals with
and tries to supply their
needs as much as possible.
There are certain things
that cannot be paid for with
the grant monies and one of
those is the field trips that
she mentioned, but they do
try to supply the children
with school supplies, make
sure they have lunches,
mentoring and tutoring if
necessary, etc. According to
McCray they can also pro-
vide physical for school if
needed, perhaps provide
band equipment if the stu-
dent is unable to afford it,
etc. providing the child
qualifies under the provi-
sions of the grant.
It was quite obvious that
McCray feels deeply for
these children that she

us,


The county offices were open until noon, allowing
those working folks who couldn't do otherwise an op-
portunity to tend to their affairs as needed. That was.
in the days when the voters were entitled to some
consideration and their needs were considered impor-
tant.
Most folks brought their corn in and had Tom San-
.terfeit convert it into grits and meal, many would
leave their horses or mules in his livery stable until
the day's activities were over, which was usually
sometimes way into the night. Mr. Santerfeit didn't
have a water wheel for power as was in general usage
in earlier days but had a truck engine geared up to do
the work of turning the mill. His son, L.J. was his
main helper and it was not unusual to see both of
them looking as though they had been rolling in the
flour barrel.
Of course there were many automobiles and trucks
in use at that time and they were parked parallel
along the street on both sides, leaving barely enough
room for traffic to pass. The back streets were packed
too with those who didn't make it in time for a front
row seat. Seat is the proper term because folks would
sit in their car and ob-
serve the goings and com- ,
ings all up and down the
street while visiting with I
friends and otherwise just Join the

kids had a dime they could go in and spend the after-
noon, watching the same cowboy opera over and
over. There were no other facilities in the movie house
however and the nearest restroom and water was
across the street at Alburtus Morgan's "Waco Pep" sta-
tion where he pumped a little gas and sold some of
about everything and bought cowhides. The water


was always hot as the line was buried under the
concrete and on a summer day, you can imagine.
Most folks still managed to meet about dark for the
showing of the "outdoor movie" provided by Buck
Maynard. There were poles in place at each end of
town for a screen and in the middle of town, behind
Mr. Robinson's fish market. Buck would back his pan-
el truck up in the right position, run a cord to some
electricity and when it was dark enough, the cowboys
and Indians would come roaring out. Those old films
were showing a little wear and would break on occa-
sion. At that time, Buck would. insert his commercials,
promoting the town's merchants who had paid for the
service while "singing Pete" would splice the film and
* get ready to continue the show. Occasionally Buck
would let Pete in on the act and Pete could sing and
play the harmonica which he gladly did when given
the opportunity.
Pete lived somewhere in Suwannee County but he
was always in Mayo on Saturday for the show. Pete
was a long legged chap with a long stride and walked
the distance each Saturday as a regular occurrence. I
once heard that someone offered him a ride as they


THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL ~ PAGE 5A
approached him walking on the old washboard road
mentioned previously. After a quick survey of the of-
fer and the offerer, Pete politely responded, "no
thanks, I'm kinda in a hurry."
Saturday was a busy day for the merchants, it was
the day that they did most of their business and there
was merchandise available to suit all needs.
Mr. Melton's grocery store was on the south-
west corner from the courthouse and going
west along the north side of Main Street


there was Mr. Hatfields dry goods and Bill Birchfield's
pharmacy. On the same block there was Mr. Guess
Croft's barbershop and Leb Taylor's pool hall.
Other merchants occupied the street on both sides
for a few blocks, east and west and there were several
filling stations where one could buy a few gallons of
gas for less than 25 cents a gallon as an attendant
checked the oil, washed the windshield and swept out
the interior and added water to the radiator if needed
after checking the air in the tires. Mr. Ab Folsom sold
Gulf at his station, where West's drug store eventually
settled and he had the last remaining hand pump
which was quite busy on those days when the some-
times on again and off again electricity was down. He
would pump the amount requested up to the metered,
glass container and then it would be released to flow
by gravity into the automobile's tank. That thing only
held five gallons but no one ever ordered more at one
time.

school, the Lady Hornets have won
six district tournament champi-
onship and number six came last Sat-
urday night at Trenton where the
Lady Hornets posted a 61-32 win
over a much improved Trenton
team.
The win gave the Lady Hornets
their fourth consecutive district tour-
nament championship and improved
their overall record to 23-2 on the
season. "We won the tournament the


first two years I coached and then
we were runners-up the third year.
Since then we have won the last
four," said Coach Blankenship. "We
didn't look good at the start but it is
a win. It's a district championship
and our fourth in a roll."
Junior Natalie Land knew the im-
portance of this game and the mo-
mentum it provided her team as they
go into regional play. She came with
a quick start and scored a game high
31 points while pulling down 11 re-
bounds and dishing off eight assists.
She has six steals in the game.
Coach Blankenship was delighted
with the win even if it was four in a
row. "I am proud of girls, and contin-
uing our tradition of winning," he
said. "This one is just as important as

the first one we won."
Freshman Sunshine Reid tossed in
16 points and had five rebounds to
go with her three steals. Eighth-grad-
er Cartesha Macklin netted seven
points.
If there is such a thing as a moral
victory, Trenton could claim that as
the Lady Tigers played Lafayette
close in spite of losing by 29 points.
For the Lady Hornets it has been one
blow out following another. The
Lady Tigers actually made it a closer I
finish that it really was during the
first three quarters. Trenton
outscored the Lady Hornets 15-5-in
the final period to make it a little
more respectable. They trailed by as
many as 40 points in the game.
Looking into the future, Coach
Blankenship is confident his team
will be a dominant team as well. "We
want to win a district title each year,"
he said. "It is very important for us
to win this."
The Lady Hornets opened a little
sluggish but did manage to race out
to a 18-4 first quarter lead. The night
before the Lady Hornets had put 39
points on the board in the first quar-
ter. "We were a little sluggish1" said
the Lafayette coach. "We finally got
things going. Our press wasn't as ef-
fective as it normally is. We got kind
of sloppy at different times."
The Lady Hornet press bothered
Trenton at the onset forcing the Lady
Tigers into nine first quarter
turnovers. Lafayette scored 11 points
off turnovers in the opening quarter.
Coach Blankenship instructed his
team from the bench the importance
of getting off to a strong start before
the ball was tipped off. His team re-
sponded with a flurry of second
quarter baskets that opened up a 29-
5 lead.

Coach Blankenship said his team
did not look as sharp as pervious
games but, "..we were good enough,
tonight to win." Reid and Land has
been a forcible, duo all season long
and tonight was no different. in com-
bining for 47 of the teams 61 points.
"Sunshine (Reid) and Natalie (Land)
put on a good show tonight," said
the Lady Hornet mentor. "Just a
tremendous job they do each game."
Lafayette, who went to the locker
room with a'41-14 half time lead,
took complete control and put the
game away in the third period. The
Lady Hornets defense held Trenton
to a lone field goal in the third stan-'
za, that a three-point basket by Kayla

Senior night at any.
school is always a solemn
occasion and it was no dif-
ferent for Lafayette as they
honored their basketball
seniors before a good
crowd at the Dorothy
Buchanan Hart Gymnasi-
um two weeks ago. Each
departing senior was hon-
ored with a nice basketball
autographed by their
teammates.
Marla Alcazar (15) was ,
the lone girls basketball se-
nior who was playing for
the final time in front of
the home crowd. Alcazar
has been a member.of the
varsity basketball team the
past three years. She en-
joys spending her avail-
able time with family and
friends but playing basket-
ball is a big part of her dai-
ly schedule. Listening to
music as well as watching
a lot of college basketball
is a big part of her life as
well.
Alcazar plans to attend
Santa Fe Community Col-
lege with an interest in
physical therapy or physi-
cal education. She is a
member of the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes
(FCA), Interact and Span-
ish. She was voted the
class's most athletic.
Coach Derek Garland
lost three from the boys
varsity team. Josh Scott
was escorted on court by
his father, Jeff Scott. Scott
has been a member of the
Hornet varsity team the
past two seasons. He is a
threat from the three-point
range and one of the teams
leading free throw shoot-
ers. He is also a member of
the school's track team.
He says he enjoys hang-
ing out with friends as
well as competing in ath-
letics. His future plans in-
dludes attending Flagler
College and pursuing a ca-
reer in teaching.
For the past three years
Darren Powe has been an
intregal part of Hornet
basketball. He is the teams
leading shot blocker. Powe
also was an outstanding
football player at Lafayette
where he was a first team
all-state selection.
Powe enjoys the sports
scene as well as hanging
with his friends. Powe's
future plans are to contin-
ue his education on a foot-
ball scholarship. Powe was
escorted on court by his

by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
The Lafayette Lady Hornets placed five players in dou-
ble-figures en route to a 83-12 win over Branford last
week in the semifinals of the girls district basketball tour-
nament at Trenton.
Lillie Prine and Natalie Land scored 14 points each in
leading the scoring parade. It was the largest margin of
victory this year for Lafayette. Prine scored eight unan-
swered points at the dose of the first quarter to stake her
team to a 39-0 first quarter lead. Prine was the recipient
of some pin point passing of Marla Alcazar, Natalie Land
and Sunshine Reid. Land scored, the game's first six
points
From the onset it was all Lafayette as they posted'a 47-
0 lead before Branford could get on the scoreboard. Their
first basket came at the 4:14 mark of the second quarter
on a short jumper by Sarah Keast. Her basket was fol-
lowed by consecutive scores from Caitlin Dempsey to
make it a 49-6 game.
The Lady Hornets set a school record by scoring 39

off that."
The Lady Hornets were
15 of 19 from the free
throw line and turned the
ball over only 11 times.
Free throw shooting has
been a problem area for
this team according to
Coach Blankenship. "We
have been working on our
free throw shooting lately,"
he said. "When you get
into the state playoffs free
throws are big. We told the
girls this and that last year
was a good indication of
that. Free throws are going
to win some games for
you."




Spending time on the river
and hanging out with his
family and friends is an
enjoyable activity for
Dees. Although no school
has been announced, Dees
says he plans to future his
education by attending
college and pursuing a de-
gree in engineering.
The foursome drew the
accolades of those present
as they walked off the
gym floor. These were
those special moments
that all four will remem-
ber.


t has been amazing how quickly this high school
basketball season has passed us by. I know, we
still have games to be. played with the tourna-
ment games still going on. But, to me, it seems
that we just started the season not long ago.
It has been a good season (what's new) for coach Jim-
my Blankenship and his Lafayette Lady Hornets. As of
this writing they are 22-2 on the season and playing for
their district championship Saturday night. I have mixed
emotions about "blowing" teams out night in and night
out but that has been the way the season has gone for the
Lady Hornets. Their two losses, both to North Florida
Christian, were winnable games, but brought some ex-
citement to the fans.
I realize my opinion does not count for much, but un-
less something takes place with other district teams, girls
basketball in our district could be in trouble. Only one
team has played within 30 points of Lafayette this season
and that was Branford. Coach Blankenship benches his
starters and plays his bench most of the second half be-
cause the score is so one sided. They play every second
half with a running clock. You wonder just how fair that
is to your marquee players who haye to sit the bench as
much as the bench players because the other team cannot
stay close.
This certainly is not a slap at the other school pro-
grams. Several teams in the district do not have "junior
varsity" teams. I understand that most schools do not
have the numbers as other schools do and cannot dress
two girls teams. But having a JV team is the life blood of
your varsity team.
There are some coaches out there who would love to be
able to run the score up on their opponents just for the
right to do a little boasting. But I do not find Coach
Blankenship as one of them. The Lafayette program, like
all their athletic teams, are class acts because they are
headed up by class people. When I cover a game I like
the dose ones. I like the nail biters. I like the double-over-
time games. I am in no hurry to leave, lets play some
more. It is hard to get into a 50-70 point blowout.
Here is hoping that all the district girls teams will see
remarkable improvement before we tip off the 2007-08
season in November.
HE'S A TOUGH HILL TO CLIMB..
I have wanted to do this for a long, long, long time. I
want to use some space here and give recognition to Jer-
ry Hill, girls junior varsity coach and assistant coach with
Coach Blankenship the Lady Hornets. What a credit
Coach Hill is the girls program. He is one of the finest
coaches in the ranks today and does an outstanding job
with the junior varsity girls team. If you were to ask
Coach Blankenship why his teams find success season in
and season out, he will be the first to tell you that Coach
Hill is a big reason.
A good junior varsity coach is a big plus to any schools
program. Jerry Hill needs to be told that we appreciate
him and all he brings to the Lady Hornet program. From
this old writer, thanks, Jerry!
CONGRATS!
To the Lafayette High School soccer team who placed
second in their district tournament and second in the re-
gional tournament. It is amazing of their accomplish-
ments in just their second season. Soccer is a fast growing
sport and a winning program will bring the fans to the
stadium.
I have never had the pleasure of covering soccer where
I come from, I attended about three matches this year at
Lafayette but I never could figure what they were doing.
I could never intelligently write an article on a contest,
but I have vowed to learn all I can between now and next
season so I can cover more games.
BASEBALL...
The high school baseball and softball season are upon
us and I am looking forward to covering some hardball
(and softball). Now I am not a big fan of cool weather.
When it is baseball time, I like the hot weather. I like to
sweat and like to watch the players sweat out on the dia-
mond. I can't wait until the umpire bellows out that old
familiar call: "Batter Up!"
OH, YEAH...
One other basketball note, the boys varsity basketball
team was the number one seed in this weeks district
tournament at Bronson. Coach Derek Garland's team has
finished with a sparkling 6-2 district record.
We look forward to covering their games and wishing
them the best as they take to the hardwood at Bronson.
Coach Mike Harris' junior varsity basketball team cer-
tainly played entertaining basketball this season and I al-
ways enjoyed watching them perform on the floor. I did
not get to see their last two games (both on the road). It
looks like the varsity has some pretty talented players
coming in next year with the returning players from this
year. That should make them a pretty good contender
next season.
SUntil the next time, good sports everyone and be good
sports!

tiful Christmas songs, and
there was even a visit from
Santa.
Also during the month

ners studied "Christmas
Around the World." The
countries we studied were
Mexico, Israel, Germany,
and the USA. For each
country we read about and
discussed traditions for
each of the countries.
Mrs. Maria Wimberly
talked to the students
about Christmas in Mexico.
We were able to try some
chips, salsa, refried beans,
and a Spanish drink. For
Germany, the students also
made gingerbread houses.
The students had a great
time making them.
On Thursday, December
21, the Kindergarten class-
es went to OakRidge and

Things to know about the Apple iPhone


were completely out-
side the realm of ac-
cepted thought.
What kind of fea-
tures?
The fact that the
iPhone can play
music, take and
display pictures,
play videos,
make phone
calls, browse the
Web and store
contact and cal-
endar informa-
tion is almost the
least-exciting as-
pect of the gad-
get. Other devices
like the Blackber-
ry and Palm Treo
offer most, if not
all, of these func-
tions in thqir own
"smart phones."
What's really im-
pressing many observers
is how it does all that, and
how nice it looks while doing it.


By Kevin Purdy
CNHI News Service


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. What's so
great about a phone that it has every'
tech reporter wearing out their keyboard
writing about it?
Part of the answer involves how many
rumors, speculations and fake Photo-
shopped prototypes have been circulat-
ing among the Apple faithful for years.
Something kept a tight secret for two
years by one of the most-watched tech-
nology companies is bound to make
waves when it hits.
But the simplest explanation is that
Apple did what it has done with most of
its other big product launches intro-.
duced a bunch of features and ideas that


connecting to iTunes on both Macs and
PCs,. ambient light sensor.
That's cool, but is the phone function
any better than what I have now?
One would have.to ask a local Cingu-
lar customer how pleased they are with
service to answer part of that question,
although Cingular is noted for having
some of the most vocal critics in the
tech world. As for actual phone func-
tion, there are a few nifty improve-
ments.
Rather than having to run through
voicemails sequentially by pressing a
key, the iPhone lets you look at all the
voicemails you have waiting and choose
to listen by caller.
The finger-scrolling and quick-find
methods used throughout the interface
are touted as offering an easier way to
find and call contacts.
When using the built-in Google
Maps function, a tap or two on a nearby
business or,home pulled up in a search
makes the call there.
How much' will it cost?
Depends on how much storage space
you want for all those songs, pictures,-
videos and personal data. The 4-giga-


The fact that the iPhone can play music, take and
display pictures, play videos, make phone calls, browse
the Web and store contact and calendar information
is almost the least-exciting aspect of the gadget.


There is only one real button on the
front of the device, and everything is
controlled on a roughly 3.5-inch by 2.4-
inch screen that is noticeably sharp.
Every function is controlled by an "in-
telligent" touch-screen version of the
Mac OS X software. When you hold the
device to your ear, it quickly changes to
calling mode. When you turn it side-
ways to look at landscape photos or
widescreen movies, it automatically
flips the image for you.
. The quick hits of the other gee-whiz
stuff: full Bluetooth capabilities, wire-
less access, docking station included for


byte model is $499, while an 8-gigabyte
phone is $599.
Does ANYBODY have doubts about
this thing?
Yes they do. Here are a few com-
plaints raised on well-read blogs and
news sites covering Apple and gadgets:
The basic idea of paying $500 (or
$600) for a device with a big glass
screen that could be more susceptible to
scratches and breaking than the abuse
standard phones go through. Many first-
generation iPod Nano users can collec-
tively groan on this topic.
The unanimous complaint is tied to


Cingular's cellular Internet service,
EDGE,, which is considerably slower
than the increasingly popular 3G stan-
dard. While the wireless Internet func-
tion somewhat makes up for it, it could
make for slow e-mail and unbearably
.long downloads outside access points
While Apple claims the device gets
eight hours of battery life under normal
use, reports clock the battery at just two
.hours while videos are played. Watching
a few episodes of "The Office" on a
plane, therefore, could leave a user
without a powered phone.
At the moment, only Apple, software
can run on the iPhone, so users can't
make up for anything Apple left out -
including support for Microsoft Office,
documents and RSS readers.
When can I trade my phone in for
this?
The iPhone won't be out until June,
assuming the device doesn't run into
any manufacturing hold-ups.
Unless you're a Cingular Wireless
customer, however, switching to an
iPhone could require paying hefty can-
cellation fees and signing a mandatory
two-year service contract. Cingular is
the exclusive service provider for the
device, and has what was described as a
"multi-year" agreement with Apple.
Didn't Apple already help make a
phone that could play MP3s and iTunes .
purchases?
Yes, but they'd probably appreciate it
if you didn't remember that. Cingular
and Apple released a Motorola phone
called the ROKR in 2005, but a basic
cell phone that could only hold 100
songs and required being plugged into a
computer to buy or change them caused
only a momentary buzz before fizzling
out.
Aren't there other devices called
"iPhones"?
Indeed, and one of their makers, Cisco
Systems, filed a lawsuit again st Apple
Inc. on Wednesday in federal court, Cis-
co claims that it has held a trademark on
the name "iPhone" since 2000 and used
it as a brand on standard phones that can
make calls over Internet lines.

support of comprehensive immigration re-
form that improves farmers' timely access
to legal farm workers. Another Florida
Farm Bureau priority that was included
was the addition of specialty crops in the
2007 farm bill. Delegates were in favor
FFBF's resolution for the exclusion of
pests and disease through the implementa-
tion of better inspection of imports and
cooperation between the Department of
Homeland Security and USDA Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Service. AFBF

This policy supports the development and
implementation of a formal plan such as
the Florida Citrus Health Response Plan
that helps growers manage and control the
spread of citrus pests and diseases.
Florida Farm Bureau had more than 100
members attending this year's national
conference. Those attending witnessed

Now that recycling is being
made easier for households, I
am more apt to recycle if at all
possible. Doing so has de-
creased the amount of trash I
put out each week. I wasn't
completely filling my trash
bin. I made one phone call to
my trash hauling company and
found out a smaller bin was
available. They don't normally
offer it automatically, only if
you call and specifically re-
quest a smaller bin. This saves
me $8 per month. It doesn't
seem like much, but over the
course of a year, it amounts to
$96. I am a firm believer that
every "little bit" counts!

AN T.. .. .i T


Suwannee Valley


By Pam Campbell


S of two special days, my birthday
and Valentine's Day. When I
think of birthdays I think of cel-
ebrating with people that I love.
When I think of Valentine's Day, I think of a special
day to show love to people that I care about.
On Valentine's Day, many people give Valentine
cards, fancy boxes of candy, flowers, balloons and
other gifts to other people to remind them that they
love them or let them know that they care. Valen-
tine's Day is a wonderful time to show others that
you love them, but Valentine's Day should not be the
only time that we let people know that we care or re-
mind them that we love them. Life is too short to
wait until one certain day of the year; we need to
share love all year long.
On Valentine's Day and everyday we need to show
genuine love to those around us. The word
"genuine" in the Merriam Webster's Dic-
tionary means "sincerely and honestly
felt or experienced; a deep and .
genuine love." Genuine love is
the only real love, all others
have strings attached or
are just an act. God's
love for us is
genuine.
Have
you ever
gone to
visit a
child that '
you haye not.
seen fora a
long time and
the first thing
they said to you
was "what did you bring me?" I can remember sev-
eral occasions when that is exactly how I was greet-
ed when visiting cousins in another state. We have
always taken them something from Florida just be-
cause we thought it would be a nice thing to. do.
Children always love to receive a present and these
children are no exception. The thing that stands out
in my mind though is that the last few times that we
went to see them, it seemed like they expected us to
be bringing gifts, and were looking for more. I do
believe that they may have been just as happy had
we sent the gifts and not taken time to visit. You see,
that is an example of "gimme" love, not genuine
love. It is a sort of a selfishness, wanting gifts, but
not caring about the person giving the gifts with
love.
When I was a child, I remember hearing a story
many times and it fits here today. It was about a lit-
tle boy who would try to show his mama how good

Genuine Love
and loving he was, and anytime she would go some-
where without him, when she came home he was
expecting a surprise from her. If he did not get one,
he would cry, pout and get mad. If he went with his
mama to the store, he Would scream and cry unless
she let him get a toy he wanted. He did not realize
that it was a privilege just to go to the store with his
mama. That is another example of "gimme" love,
and it is not genuine love. I remember that that
boy's mama ended up sick in a hospital and she
missed her little boy. When that mama finally got
well she was so excited about going home to her
son, when she got home just as she knew he would,
her little boy came running out to the car to her and
as she was reaching to hug him, she heard his
words. With an in-
credible sadness
in her heart,
she .. '


6. ^'walked
on into
the house,
realizing
that he only wanted
a present, not his own mama. In-
stead of telling her he loved her or that he was glad
she was home from the hospital, he had asked her
what she had brought him for a present. That little
boy was being selfish and cruel to ask for presents
and not welcome his mama home with genuine love.
I seem to remember his mama telling him to love a
paper bag. He thought about it along time and he fi-
nally understood, at bedtime. He told his mama that
he really loved her more than presents, and was so
glad that she was home. They hugged each other and
felt that true genuine love that a mama and her child
have for each other. I am sure that all of us can think
of times that we remember or have heard about
where people, children and adults have had some of
that "gimme" love, and other times where we see
true genuine love.
You see in the Bible God tells us in 1 John 4:11

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love
one another." He tells us to love one another; he does
not say we must give presents. The greatest love of
all is God's love and God tells us to love each other,
not for what they will give us, or do for us, just love
them.
"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God;
he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love
to a thousand generations of those who love him and
keep his commands." Deuteronomy 7:9. If you really
want to experience genuine love, receive the love of
God. It is faithful, it will last forever, God will al-
ways love you. On Valentine's Day, we should be
looking to the creator, the God of all love. Only
when we look at the love God has for us, will we
find out what genuine love really is. The greatest ex-
ample of genuine love is in a passage most of us
know by heart, John 3:16: "For God so loved the
world, that he gave his
only begotten son, that
whoever believeth in
him should not perish,
but have everlasting
w t life." God gave us
the most important
gift that he could
ever give, his only
son whom he loved, be-
cause he knew that was the only
way that all of us would ever receive salva-
tion from our sins, the only way that'we can
ever get to heaven to be with him, and the only
way that we would ever know genuine love.
On Valentine's Day be sure to remember your
mom, your dad, grandparents, other relatives and
close friends, and especially remember yp.urspouse,, .
your children or grandchildren, it will mean so much
to them that you remembered! Share love with
friends, neighbors, teachers; shut-ins, everyone you
can. A special thing that you can do that means so
much is to spend some time with them! Don't just
give gifts to those that you think will give you some-
thing, this is the time to show love with no strings at-
tached. Remember, it is better to give than to re-
ceive! Share genuine love, not the "gimme" kind.
Most important of all remember to let God know
how much you appreciate his love and desire to live
more and more for him. The greatest love of all is
not shown with a Valentine card or flowers or bal-
loons, it is how you show Jesus you love him by
giving him your heart. Matthew 22:37: "Jesus said
unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
mind."
Remember, Valentine's Day is a day to show gen-
uine love to others, and remember to show God the
Creator of love, that you love him. Have a very
Happy and Blessed Valentine's Day full of genuine
love!-Pam

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


Real Love


By Pam Campbell
When I think of the month of Febru-
ary, I think of two special days, my
birthday and Valentine's Day. When I
think of birthdays I think of celebrating
with people that I love. When I think
of Valentine's Day, I think of a special
day to show love to people that I care
about.
On Valentine's Day, many people
give cards, candy, balloons, flowers
and other presents to people that they
love. Valentine's Day is a real good
time to remind the people that you care
about, that you really love them. Re-
member though that you should show
your love to them everyday of the year,
not just on Valentine's Day.
Have you ever had someone act as if
they were your friend because they
wanted something that you had?
Maybe they pretended to be very
friendly to get you to give them your
candy bar and when you gave it to
them then they just left you alone.
Maybe some of you in school have had
another student act as if they were your
friend because they knew you made
good grades on the
last test. They
wanted you to
help them cheat .
and givethem the
answers for the
next test. When
you told them no,
that you did not
cheat and would
not help them
cheat, and then
they were not bud-
dy-buddy any-
more. You see the
problem is that is
not real love, or
real friendship,
that is a "gimme" kind of love. They
are being selfish, only wanting things
to help themselves.
I heard a story about a little boy that
would always greet his mama whenev-
er she came home from shopping by
asking her what she had brought him.
If she did not bring him something
then he would cry, and get mad and
leave the room. If he went to the store
with his mama he would try to act real
sweet and good, then he would ask for
a new toy. If his mama said that he
could not get that toy that day, he
would scream and cry. That is an ex-
ample of "gimme" love, and it is not
real love. The little boy's mama got
sick and was away in a hospital and
she missed her little boy. When his
mama finally got well, she was so ex-
cited about going home to her little
boy. When she got home, her little boy
came running out to the car to her and
as she was reaching to hug him, she
heard his words. His words made her
very sad. Instead of telling her he
loved her or that he was glad she was
home from the hospital, he had asked
her what she had brought him for a
present. That little boy was being self-
ish to ask for presents and not welcome
his mama home with real love. His
mama told him to hug and love a bag
from a store. He thought about it along
time and he finally understood. Later
he told his mama that he really loved
her more than presents, and was so
glad that she was home. They hugged
each other and felt that true real love
that mamas and children have for each


other
You see in the Bible God tells us in
1 John 4:11, "Beloved, if God so loved
us, we ought also to love one another."
He tells us to love each other; he does
not say we must give presents. The
greatest love of all is God's love and;
God tells us to love each other, not for
what they will give us, or do for us,
just love them.
The best place to see what real love
is can be found right in your Bible in
John 3:16: "For God so loved the
world, that he gave his only begotten
son, that whosever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting
life." God gave us the most important
gift that he, could ever give, because he
knew that was the only way that all of
us would ever receive salvation from.
our sins, the only way that we can ever
get to heaven to be with him, and the
only way that we would ever know
real love.
On Valentine's Day, it is good to re-
member your mom, your dad, grand-
parents, brothers and sisters, other rela-
tives and close friends. Share love with
friends,

neighbors,
and teach-
ers; some-
'' '--' ,.', one that is
sick, every-

You can
Make or buy
them a card
Sor present.
S A special
thing that
you can do
that is to
spend some
extra time
with them!
Don't just give gifts to those that
you think will give you something.
This is the time to show love and not
be looking for something for yourself.
Remember, it is better to give than to
receive! Share real love, not the
"gimme" kind.
The greatest love of all is how you
show Jesus you love him by giving
him your heart. Matthew 22:37: "Jesus
said unto
him, Thou
shalt love
the Lord ESTI
thy God
with all thy
heart, and
with all thy Live Oak
soul, and
with all thy
mind."
Remem-
ber, Valen-'
tine's Day
is a day to
show real
love to oth-
ers, and re- .
member to
show God,
the Creator
of love, Dr. Jimmy Deas, Pasto]
that you
love Him.
Have a
very Hap-
py Valen-
tine's Day
full of real
love! (386) 3(

Health to Heart






Learning disabilities can go undiagnosed


if parents don't pay close attention


As any parent of a school-aged child knows, kids can be cruel. Such cruelty is only further
magnified when children have a learning disability, one that noticeably comes to light in the
classroom. While this can make kids feel as if they're not as smart as the rest of the class, that's
typically not the case.
Children with learning disabilities can be of average or above-average intelligence. That's
evidenced by the nearly 3 million school-aged children with learning disabilities in the United
States alone. Such figures, reported by the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD),
indicate that children have a strong possibility of being diagnosed with a learning disability.
For parents, recognizing the different types and symptoms can be a great way to help kids
avoid having to struggle needlessly.
Dyslexia
Most people have heard of dyslexia and are probably aware it's a disability where the brain
has trouble processing information correctly. Children with undiagnosed dyslexia can be at a
major disadvantage, as classroom activity usually revolves around reading and writing. These
are areas where dyslexia typically causes its biggest problems. While dyslexia is not a
reflection of a child's intelligence, poor grades can result if the problem is undiagnosed.
Part of what makes dyslexia so difficult to diagnose is that children often don't exhibit signs
of the disorder early on. Early reading and writing, for instance, typically poses no problem.
,However, as studies shift toward grammar, reading comprehension and more in-depth writing,
children with dyslexia begin to struggle.
Another symptom to look out for is trouble speaking and understanding others. Difficulty
with vocabulary as well as structuring thoughts are symptoms, as is difficulty comprehending
what others are saying. Perhaps the most damaging aspect of any of these symptoms is the
effect on a child's self-image. As mentioned, dyslexia is not a reflection of intelligence, but
children, especially those whose problem goes undiagnosed, can falsely assume that it is.
D\ scalculia
*One of the toughest subjects in school for most kids to grasp is mathematics. Sometimes that
difficulty can be the result of dyscalculia, a learning disability involving math. While each
disability n ith math is different, there are certain early indicators parents should be on the
lookout for.
According to NCLD, among the earliest indicators are trouble understanding the meaning of
numbers; difficulty sorting objects by shape, size or color; trouble recognizing groups or
patterns; and trouble comparing and contrasting by using concepts such as bigger/smaller or
taller/shorter.
For school-aged children, problems might be less subtle. For example, children with
dyscalculia might struggle memorizing times tables. Math problems could also prove
exceedingly difficult, as children might not be capable of applying their knowledge and skills.
A problem with organizing ideas with respect to math could indicate dyscalculia as well.
This is known as a visual-spatial problem, wherein the child will understand the needed facts
to solve a problem but will struggle putting those facts and solutions down on paper. If any of
these problems go untreated or undiagnosed, older children, such as those in high school, will
exhibit difficulty moving on to higher level math courses.
Dysgraphia
,Like dyscalculia, dysgraphia, which concerns problems with writing, has he potential to be
written off by parents and educators alike. That's because it's common for'parenits to feel'that
their children will struggle with math or writing as they did when they were kids. However,

Learning disabilities can go undiagnosed if parents don't pay close attention.

dysgraphia should be taken seriously, just like any other learning disability.
Symptoms of dysgraphia include poor handwriting, difficulty with spelling, and trouble
putting thoughts on paper. While not everyone's handwriting will be perfect nor will every
child qualify for the National Spelling Bee, it's important not to brush aside these symptoms.
Avoiding writing, having a tight and awkward grip on a pencil while writing, and tiring
quickly while writing are indicative of the larger problem of dysgraphia.
Like dyslexia, dysgraphia is a processing disorder. As such, different degrees of the
disability exist, so not all children will have all of the aforementioned symptoms. Treatment is
often tailored to each individual's problems, whether finding a more suitable writing utensil or
even having students proofiead their own work after a delay. By delaying such'proofin'g. ',
children are better equipped to recognize their owinilpikes, .

options, visit the NCLD Web site at www.ncld.org.

Dear Classified Guys,
Two weeks ago I bought a massage
chair with a heater and massager
built into it. It's the kind you usually
see on demo at the mall. However, I
picked it up from the classified for
only $400. That's a steal since it sells
for almost $3,000 new. I know
because the person I bought it from,
had the original receipt and paper-
work. I was so excited, I put it right in
front of our big screen TV. The prob-
lem is my rambunctious son broke
the massage mechanism within the
first month. Now it only massages
on the right side. While reading
through the paperwork, I discovered
that the previous owner bought an
extended warranty that may offer a
lifetime guarantee on the mecha-
nism. Does that mean I can
get the company to fix the /'
part under warranty or am I c^.
out of luck because I "- '
bought the chair used?

Cash: With a rambunctious son
around the house, you could probably
use a good massage. Although with
your dilemma, it looks like you'll only
be half relaxed.
Carry: It's always a good idea to get
the original paperwork or receipts when


you buy anything in the classified. In
your case, it not only told you the origi-
nal price, but it also offered valuable
information about the manufacturer and
warranty. -
Cash: The first thing you should do is
read the warranty very carefully and
determine if the coverage applies to your
case. Many warranties limit their cover-
age to manufacturer defects and won't
cover problems resulting from consumer
abuse. However, some extended war-
ranties may offer additional coverage
with fewer limits.
Carry: It pays to read carefully.
After all, you don't want to ship the
product back only to find out the repair


isn't covered.
Cash: If you do think the warranty
applies, contact the manufacturer and try
to transfer the coverage into your name.
Many manufacturers allow warranties to
be transferred, however it is important to
file that paperwork before you attempt
to have it repaired.
Carry: If you find the damage isn't
covered under warranty, you can still
contact the. manufacturer to find a local
dealer who can service the product.
Since you bought the chair at such a
great price, it may be worth the cost to
have it repaired.
Cash: Otherwise you'll have to sit in,
it upside down to massage your left side.

Extended Warranties
Do you buy extended warranties on
new products? If so, you're not alone.
According to Consumer Reports, shop-
pers were expected to spend $1.6 billion
on extended warranties over the 2006
holiday season. However according to
their research, extended warranties are
rarely worth the cost. Most electronics
and appliances today are very reliable
which makes those unused warranties
very profitable for retailers and manufac-
turers. Most consumers also admit to
wanting a newer model with updated fea-
tures when their product finally breaks.
Pressure Cooker .
Whether it's from commuting, dead-
lines, or long hours, many jobs bring
about a lot of stress. More and more
workers suffer from physical problems
like high blood pressure, headaches, achy
muscles, and loss of sleep because of the
stress experienced in their work environ-
ment. A recent report by the National
Institute for Occupational Safety and
Health, found that 40% of workers report
their job to be "very" or "extremely"
stressful. Nearly 550 million working
days are lost annually from stress relat-
ed absenteeism.
