vices personnel. FHP

ficer.
According to the FHP
report, the unidentified
driver of the van was
southbound on CR 353

complete stop at the stop

the driver of the van en-
tered into the path of


Nina Schimpfle of Mayo
who was driving west on
SR 27 in a 1999 Ford


pickup.
The collision, as stated
in the report, caused
both vehicles to veer
northwest toward the
south shoulder of SR 27
where Schimpfle's vehi-
cle came to a final rest
facing southwest, while

a barbed wire fence and'
came to rest facing west
in the field nearby.
The total estimated
damage of both vehicles
is $7,500, the report indi-
cated: Damage to the
fence is approximately

ening injuries.

Janice Hart, a resident
of Mayo for approxi-
mately 20 years, is the
proud owner of a flower-
ing plant that blooms
only at night and closes
up the next morning,
during the summer and
fall seasons.
The plant, called Angel
Trumpets, was given to
Hart by her daughter
Candi Hart of Tampa
two years ago. Accord-
ing to Hart, it is a rare
tropical plant that pro-
duces beautiful flowers
in the shape of a trum-
pet. It has now grown to
10-12 ft.
Hart is an avid garden-
er, as evidenced by a


walk in her yard. She has
a wide variety of plants,
flowers, and trees that
she received from her
family and friends who
once lived in Lafayette
County for many years.
This plant also grows
in Cypress Gardens. For

Concerned about money


for retirement?
Social Security and a solid savings plan can ease your worries


,By Louis Sullivan
:Social security District Manager,
Gainesville
S- Do you sometimes wonder if you'll be
able to afford to retire? It's a common
concern among workers, especially mem-
ibers of the baby-boom generation. The
'oldest of the boomers will be 62 in just a
Sfew months in January 2008. But even
the most anxious group should be able to
relieve at least some concerns about re-
tirement income by understanding just
how much money is needed, and then
,planning a way to reach that goal.
Most financial advisors say that you
will need at least 70 to 80 percent of your
pre-retirement income to enjoy a comfort-
able retirement. Other advisors say that
you may need an even higher percentage
of pre-retirement income. So where will it
come from?
The truth is that today Social Security is
the largest source of income for most old-
er Americans. For the average wage-earn-
er, Social Security will replace about 40
percent of pre-retirement earnings. But
Social Security was never intended to be
your only source of income when you re-
tire, and to reach the 70-80 percent in-
come replacement goal you also will need
other savings, investments, pension in-
come or part-time work.
As Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of


Social Security has noted, "Saving and in-
vesting wisely are important not only for
you and your family, but for the entire
country. If you want to learn more about
how and why to save, you,should visit
www.mymoney.gov, a federal govern-
ment website dedicated to teaching all
Americans the basics of financial manage-
ment."
The topics discussed at this website in-
clude paying for an education, starting a
small business and, of course, retirement
planning.
The retirement planning link takes you
to more than a dozen other links with
valuable financial information. There is,
for example, "A Special Guide for Seniors
and Families'! from the FDIC; "Top 10
Ways To Prepare For Retirement" from
the Department of Labor; "Tax Informa-
tion for Retirement Plan Participants"
from the IRS; and several links to Social
Security sites, including Social Security
retirement benefit calculators, special
guides for women and retirement plan-
ners.
So if you are concerned about being
able to afford retirement, just remember
that knowledge is power. Get valuable in-
formation from Social Security at
www.socialsecurity.gov, or from the fed-
eral website for financial literacy at
www.mymoney.gov.

;name recognition also. The
'numbers she put up when
sh played the better
tems. It wasn't what she
!did against the weaker
]teams in the playoffs but
how she continued to per-
'form well against the
stronger teams."
Land was well noted for
Sher offensive achievements
this past'season but her de-
ifensive skills did not go
Unnoticed as well. "Natalie
imby far the best defensive
Splyer I have ever seen,"
.s aid Garland. "That is in
ibaSeball and softball." Land
was late getting into soft-
Sball last season because of
;the basketball team's run in
'tournament play. Her abili-
jty to hit the long ball was
slow coming around but
once it did she won some
ibig games for the Lady
;Hornets in the state softball
"playoffs. "She started get-
'ting her swing in the state
,playoffs," explained Gar-
'land. "You have to, remem-
ber that she was sick last
*iear and that held her back
*some as well. When the
'pressure went up it seemed
Iher concentration went
up."
': Several college are vying
for the talents of Land on
the diamond. It appears
that she is considering a
softball scholarship over
basketball at this point in
her high school career, al-
though no definite decision
has been made. According
to Coach Garland, she has
verbally committed to Cen-
tral Florida but other
schools have been ringing

first kickoff. Thomas Byrd is
figured in the mix to replace
the departed Greshem at mid-
dle linebacker. "He is ready to
get in there and do his best,"
said Pearson. Also returning
for their senior seasons are
Kris and Kyle Pearson who
are expected to give some ,
support at the linebacker slot.
The Hornets may have lost
one Greshem but Alex
Greshem, brother to Aaron,
has shown a lot of promise as
a freshman. "I think Alex will
make an immediate impact at
end (Pole's slot) as well as
Joey Watson."
The Hornets backfield will
be all-state material with Eric
McIntyre returning at the tail-
back slot. McIntyre rushed for
over 1,500 yards last season
and is expected to reach the
same numbers this season.
Two-year all-stater Chad

Hempstead will be behir

a good blocking fullback

'07 schedule not an easy one

OK, there are a lot of folks in Mayo and the sur-
rounding area who believe Lafayette will be a hot
team this high school football season.
' When the Hornets took to the gridiron for their
first practice of the 2007 season, they were a hot

team, literally.,
Baking, not basking,.but baking under a hot sun
with the temperatures hovering near the century
mark, Hornet coach Joey Pearson led his team
onto the field and there was no lack of confidence
in this year's team's ability to repeat for a third
consecutive district championship.
The Hornets, who finished 10-1 last season, will
face a much tougher schedule than they did last
season, according to Coach Pearson. "Our sched-
ule will be more difficult than in the past years,".
he said, "It is going to be a tough road and we
need to stay healthy."
The Lafayette coach noted his team's non-dis-
trict schedule will be against larger schools but
also believes his team will be up for the challenge..
"We will play schools with a larger classification
than we are," he said. "I think we can compete
with all the teams on our schedule and we look
forward to it." Coach Pearson noted that his team
will have to remain healthy. "If we stay healthy
then in the end we are going to be a better team.
By the playoffs we will be battle tested and ready
to go into the playoff and hopefully be prepared
to win some games in the playoffs and advance as
far as possible."
Lafayette ran into a tough St. Joe team in the
first round of the playoffs last season. That ac-
counted for their lone setback. The Hornets were
perfect during the regular season at 10-0.
The Hornets open the 2007 season at home,
hosting Keystone Heights on Friday, August 31.
After facing Baldwin on'the road and Dixie Coun-
ty at home, the Hornets will meet Trenton in their
first district game of the season. According to
Coach Pearson, the Tigers will be ready. "They are
a much improved team this year," he said. "They
have two really good senior players back in Math-
is and Henry. Both are going to be outstanding
skill players. They are going to be our first real
test."
Lafayette will face traditional foe Branford, who
S Coach Pearson dubbed a competitive team. "They
are going to be tough this year," he said.

Tidbits

Another season of athlet-
ics is about to get under-
way at Lafayette High
School and boy you'd .
think they were playing
"coaches musical chairs!"
With the exception of girls
basketball and football,
seems like every team saw
a change in coaching.
For starters, the school
has a new Athletic Director
with Mike Harris taking
over for veteran coach and
super nice guy Taylor Mc-
Grew. McGrew resigned -
the position but stays on to
teach at the school. Harris,
who coached junior varsity
basketball lasftseason says
for right now he remains
the JV coach. He also
works with coach Joey
Pearson and the football
team.
Derek Garland left the
boys basketball program
and will concentrate on
just girls softball this sea-
son. "I needed a break be-
tween basketball and soft-
ball," said Garland. "I will
continue to help with the
football program." Stewart
Hancock went from
"coach" to "Mister" after ac-
cepting the principals posi-
tion at the high school thus
giving up the baseball
coaching position. But the
slot will be in capable
hands in the person of Her-
bert Perry. Jimmy Blanken-
ship will continue to han-
dle the girls basketball pro-
gram and will return a vet-
eran team who are winners
of six consecutive district
championship's.

Sonya Land will be
the new girls
volleyball coach
Our congratulations go
out to Natalie Land for be-
ing named Class 2A Player
of the Year in girls softball
this past season. Land was
runner-up in the state as
Player of the Year in the
state of Florida. Hard to
imagine another player as
good. I understand that
Land is even going to play
a little volleyball this sea-
son. Way to go, mom!
Can the upcoming foot-
ball season be as exciting
as last year's? I mean from
the opening game to the
state playoff game it was a
very enjoyable and inter-
esting season. Coach Pear-

Perez and Casey Brewer.
Harris will kick for the ex-
tra points and field goals
while Perez will be the
kick off returned. Brewer
will punt the football for
the Hornets. "We think
our speciality team is go-
ing to be solid for us this
year," said Pearson.
"Blade is working hard on
extra points and field
goals. Jamal kicked off in
the spring and kicked two
balls into the end zone on
kick offs." Reid figures to
be in the return game as


well after returning a kick
off for a touchdown. Add
Perez to the return game
as well. Brewer averaged
40-yards a punt this past
spring. "I think our spe-
cialty team will be very
strong," said Pearson.
Coach Pearson will not
hesitate in naming his re-
ceiving corp as one of the
state's best. Jamal Reid,
Matt Milton and Perez.
Milton is coming back
from an injury last season,
an injury that occurred in
the third quarter of the
first game. The injury put
Milton out for the rest of


the 2006 season. "Those
are three quality re-
ceivers," said the Hornet
coach. "You don't see that
quality in our classifica-
tion and then an all-state
quarterback in Hemp-
stead and an all-state
power running back,
The offensive line may
be the most experienced
of the two. "We have
some good offensive line-
men but they do not have
a lot of experience," said
Pearson, "but I feel like
they are going to step up.
Defensively, we are going
to be solid across the


board and hopefully play
great team defense.
"We are excited about
this year's team," said the
Lafayette football mentor.
"We have some players
who have been waiting
for their chance. We had
some good players who
graduated but we have
some guys who are ready
to come and do what they
have been waiting to do."
Staying healthy and
having things to fall in
place are the two major
keys for this year's edition
of Lafayette Hornet foot-
ball.

the phone as well. "She
definitely wants to play
softball in college," Gar-
land said. "She has drawn


interest from Florida, Cen-
tral Florida and pretty
much everyone else in the
state."
During tournament play
around the area, Land


made a big impression on
such major colleges as
Georgia Tech and Virginia
Tech. "That was three
weeks ago when she went
to South Carolina and


played in a tournament,"
said Garland. "She played
so well that when she
walked off the field the
two schools were about to
make an offer."

Jefferson County will
provide a formidable foe
for the Hornets at home.
"They are probably one of
the more athletic teams in
our class," stated the Hor-
net mentor. "Our last two
district games are on the
road and that is not going
to be easy." The Hornets
will meet Hillard and
Hawthorne on the road to
close out the district sched-


ule in late October and ear-
ly November. "We don't
have a favorable district
schedule," said Pearson,
"but I feel we can compete
with all of those teams. But
we'are going to need
things to go our way and
stay healthy to have a
chance to win our third
district in a row."

Hey kids: protect your eyes during sports play


The number of kids play-
ing organized sports is on
the rise and so to is the
number of sports-related
injuries. What many play-
ers, parents and coaches do
not realize is that the major-
ity of injuries occur during
practice and not during


games, making it crucial
that kids wear protective
equipment for practices
and games alike. Proper
protection for these athletes
should include not only
helmets, knee and elbow
pads and mouth guards,
but protective eyewear as

objects are just one of the
hazards of sports. A large
number of injuries occur
from finger pokes and jabs
from arms and elbows.
Throw together a couple of
overzealous players and a
potential collision could oc-
cur. Even sports that seem
relatively harmless can ac-
tually be harmful to the
eyes.
But more than 90 percent
of all eye injuries can be
prevented with the use of
appropriate protective eye-
wear, says Prevent Blind-
ness America. And proper
hygiene and vision care,
such as yearly examina-


tions and proper cleaning
of glasses and contact lens-
es can ensure that kids pro-
tect one of their most valu-
able tools ... their vision.
Today, protective eye-
wear is becoming common-
place for any kid who picks
up a ball, stick, racquet, or
dives into sports play. In
fact, without having to
worry about eye injuries,.
both players. and parents
can focus more intently on
game play and of course
- winning. o
Whether a child is an af-
ter-school jock or a week-
end warrior, here's a listing
of some of the popular sea-


sonal sports activities that
present a risk for injury,
which can become much
safer with protective, eye-
wear.


Soccer is just one OT tne many
sports children enjoy that can
be made safer with sports eye

Most people know there is a dis-
tinction between "good" and "bad"
cholesterol. But what makes some
good and some bad? And which
foods are OK to eat and which
should be avoided?

Good
What is it? High-density lipopro-
tein (HDL) is known as "good" cho-
lesterol. This is because HDL is be-
lieved to remove cholesterol from the
blood. When HDL levels in the blood
are high, this is believed to reduce a
person's risk of coronary heart dis-
ease. The adverse' effect occurs when
HDL levels are low.
Good foods to eat: Because genetics
play a role in cholesterol levels,
what's good for the goose isn't al-
ways good for the gander. However,
these foods have been known to re-
duce LDL levels:
Foods with soluble fiber: foods
containing soluble fiber, which is
known to reduce the absorption of
cholesterol in your intestines, reduce
levels of LDL. Oatmeal, oat bran, ce-
reals containing oats, kidney beans,
apples, and prunes are all high in sol-
uble fiber.
Fish and omega-3 fatty acids:
omega-3 fatty acids help reduce
blood pressure and the risk of blood
clots. Fish that boast high levels of

tions, please contact

4120."


omega-3 fatty acids include mackerel,
lake trout, salmon and albacore tuna.
Walnuts/almonds: walnuts are
known to significantly reduce blood
cholesterol, and walnuts and al-
monds can both do wonders in as lit-
tle as four weeks. However, be care-
ful, as nuts are high in calories,
which can lead to weight gain. Eating
a handful per day will still help re-
dice cholesterol while keeping
weight off as well.

Bad
What is it? Low-density lipoprotein
(LDL) is whafs known as "bad" cho-
lesterol. Buildup of LDL in the arter-
ies can increase a person's risk of
heart disease, while lowering that
level is believed to lower a person's
risk of developing heart disease.
Foods to avoid: Though genetics
play a role in cholesterol levels, diet
plays a significant role as well. Re-
gardless of family history, it's always
best to avoid these foods:
Foods high in saturated fats: sat-
urated fats should be avoided as
much as possible. Saturated fat is a
type of fat found in whole milk, eggs
and meat. Other foods high in satu-
rated fats include butter, ice cream,
and even cheese.
Foods with trans fats: trans fats
are a double-edged sword, lowering

Warning consumers not to
,eat certain brands of
'French Cut Green Beans
:in 14.5 ounce cans manu-
,factured by Lakeside
,Foods Inc, of Manitowoc,
*Wisconsin because the
,product may not have
'been processed adequate-
ly to eliminate the poten-
tial for botulism toxin.
"This warning is not relat-
ied to another recent
warning for botulism.
SThe canned green beans
ymay cause botulism if
consumed. FDA is pro-
-viding this warning to
.make consumers aware of
the possible risk of seri-
ous illness from eating
these products. As of Au-
-gust 1, 2007, FDA had not
-received reports of ill-
jaesses related to the
,product.
SThe botulism toxin is
very potent, and botulism
is a life-threatening ill-
ness. Symptoms of botu-
lism can begin from six
hours to two weeks after
eating food that contains
the toxin. The symptoms
may include double vi-
sion, blurred vision,
drooping eyelids, slurred


speech, difficulty swal-
lowing, dry mouth, and
muscle weakness that
moves progressively
down the body, affecting
the shoulders first then
descending to the upper
arms, lower arms, thighs,
and calves. Botulism also
may cause paralysis of the
breathing muscles, which
can result in death unless
assistance with breathing
(mechanical ventilation) is
provided. Individuals
who show these symp-
toms and who may have
recently eaten the product
should seek immediate
medical attention.
The specific codes (top
line of can code) involved
are:

Consumers who have
any of these products or
any foods made with
these products should
dispose of them immedi-
ately. If the code on an af-
fected can is missing or
unreadable, consumers
should throw the product
out.
Lakeside Foods has in-
formed FDA that it is vol-
untarily recalling all of
the potentially contami-
nated products.
Lakeside Foods recom-
mends that consumers
with any questions or
concerns about the recall
should call the company

Welcome


Continued From Page lA

used to. I built a lot of
good relationships with
some of our young people,
their parents or guardians,
and the Lafayette County
School District employees.
I ask that you take the
time to talk to your chil-
dren and explain to them
that I am at the schools to
protect them and that at
any time they need a
friend or just someone to
talk to they can come see
me.
This has been an eye
opening experience for me
and it has reminded me
that I also once was a
teenager. How soon do we
all forget how hard it was
to grow up? Some of the
things that children face
now, we did not. So we
have to take time and lis-
ten to our children and
hear some of the problems
that they are having no
matter how big or small it
seems to us. There is still
name calling, there are still
people who try to bully
them and there is still
boyfriend/ girlfriend prob-
lems.
Our young people are
forced to grow up and
mature at an early age
now. We now have both
parents working outside
the home trying to make
ends meet and trying to
give our children all the
things we did not have.
Sometimes that is a-good
thing and sometimes I
think it is not. We can still
give our children the love
and nurturing they need,
IF WE DON'T THEY
WILL FIND SOMEONE
WHO WILL. Young peo-
ple need a sense of belong-
ing and as parents in this


community it is still our
responsibility to help them
find this, whether it is in
forms of church groups or
school sports, clubs, etc.....
A lot of the bigger
schools in our state have
some serious problems
with gangs in the school
and this is a way for our
young people to find a
sense of belonging. These
gangs prey on children
who do not fit in; they.
show them the love they
do not receive from other
places. This is the way
they find new members. It
only takes a moment to
tell our children "I love
you," and in many in-
stances it.could be the last:
time you ever get to speak
to your child. We never
know when it will be the
last time we speak to
someone and what better
words are there?
We live in a society
where we have violence in
the home, violence in our
community and violence
in our schools. We need
not think that just because
we live in Lafayette Coun-
ty we are immune to vio-
lence in our school. Hope-
fully, we will never be
faced with a terrorist in
our school but we must
prepare for the worst and
pray for.the best.
The Lafayette County
Sheriff's office in coopera-
tion with the Lafayette
County School District
takes all means in securing
our schools to prevent this
horrific type of situation.
One way you can help is
by always checking in at
the office before you pro-
ceed anywhere on campus.
There will be no tolerance
for visitors on any of our
campuses that do not have


a visitor badge.
The Lafayette School
District has a new system
for issuing visitor badges
and do not be alarmed
when you are asked for
your drivers license. This
is only being done to pro-
tect our children and
grandchildren. I can re-
member when you could
stand on the comer and
wave at everyone who
went by; because you
know them, where they
lived and the other vehi-
cles they owned or drove.
We do not live in that
community no more; we
have had a lot of good
people move into our
county that we have not
been introduced to. So
when you are asked for
identification do not be of-
fended, just know that
every possible thing is be-
ing done to protect your
children.
Remember to obey the
school zones in the morn-
ing and afternoons. As I
said last year, the sheriff's
office does not want to is-
sue citations, but we will if
we have to. We will con-
tinue to have a school
crossing guard in front of
the high/middle school.
Please show this person
some respect as they also
try to,protect your chil-
dren as they come and go
from school.
Everything the sheriff's
office does in the school
system is done to protect
our most precious re-
source, our children.
Please help us accomplish
this and make it another
safe and educational year
for our young people.
Thanks in advance,
Sgt. Scott H. Hamlin
School Resource officer

A day at the




springs


By Carolea Evans
UF/IFAS Master Gardener
volunteer

Our Florida springs are a refreshing place for
summer fun. With an average year-round temper-
ature of 72 degrees, a leisurely dip in one of our
many springs is sure to cool you off on a hot sum-
mer day. North and Central Florida have the
largest network of springs anywhere else in the
world.
The water bubbling out of the springs looks
crystal clear and good enough to drink; but don't
be fooled by appearance. The water is sometimes
laden with excessive nutrients and toxins.
Springs can be contaminated by storm-water
runoff that carries pollutants like fertilizers, pesti-
cides, oils and antifreeze from our yards, parking
lots and roads. Contamination can also be caused
by dumping old batteries, appliances and trash
into sinkholes where leaching of pollutants af-
fects ground water that bubbles up through the
springs. Failing or improperly maintained septic
systems are also a source for nitrate, bacterial and


viral contaminants that end up in our ground wa-
ter which is where our drinking water comes
from.
For these reasons, as well as others, there is a
need to raise awareness and to educate our com-
munity about the unique geology of our Florida
springs. On Saturday, Aug. 4 a "Celebration of
Florida's Springs" was held at Poe Springs in
Alachua county. Suwannee County UF/IFAS Ex-
tension Agent Carolyn Saft and UF/IFAS Master
Gardener volunteer, Carolea Evans were there to
educate people on the Best Management Prac-
tices farmers use on their farms. Residents were
made aware of how they can make their own
yards more "Florida Friendly" with the adoption
of the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods pro-
gram. A groundwater model was used to demon-
strate how pollutants move through the soils,
sinkholes and lakes into our groundwater. The
groundwater is then pumped for drinking water
or comes up through holes in the aquifer which
we know as springs. Saft and Evans handed out
information on fertilizing, irrigating, controlling
pests and mulching. Approximately 500 people


came to the event and most walked away with a
lot of useful information and possibly a new per-
spective of our spring's environment.
Many other agencies, non-profit organizations
and environmental groups were there to offer a
variety of advice on septic tanks, water conser-
vation, pollution prevention and wildlife that de-
pend on springs' ecosystems. A young boy about


10 years old told us how he had already picked
up a lot of trash around the spring that morning
and how he and his family conserve water. Many
other folks pledged to do their part for spring's
protection. What can you do in your own yard?
For more information, contact Carolyn Saft at
the Suwannee County Extension Senrice, 386-
362-2771.

Florida white shrimp is a popular delicacy
beloved by all-chefs, locals and visitors alike.
It has a sweet taste, firm bite and a distinctive
ocean flavor that makes it any
shrimp lover's favorite. Al-
though classified as white, this
shrimp's shell is actually
green-gray or blue-gray in col-
or when raw but "pinks up"
when cooked. Brown shrimp,
named for its reddish-brown
\ shell, has a firmer meat tex-
t 'ture and a stronger flavor than
o | the white shrimp due to higher
iodine content. It is often used
in spicy gumbos and re-
moulades where its flavor can
hold its own with the season-
i ings. Shrimp is harvested
year-round off Florida's At-
1. lantic and Gulf coasts but the
Shine 'highest yield for brown
S shrimp is June through August
while the highest yield for
white shrimp is October
through December.

Recognizing silent eye ailments


When it comes to their young children,
parents can often tell when a child is
sick or not feeling his best. Be it
coughing, restlessness or crying,
typically one or two telltale signs arise
indicating that something's not right.

However, in some cases signs aren't
that apparent. This is often problematic
when children are very young and aren't
able to relay problems to their parents
through language. This may be the case
with young children experiencing eye
problems. Vision problems aren't so
easy to detect. Which only emphasizes a
parent's need for diligence in looking for
certain indicators that a child could be
struggling with his vision.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism is
essentially a fancy word describing an
eye that is out of focus for both near and
distant vision. Focus is distorted because


the cornea, the clear dome covering the front of the eye, is
not perfectly round. Instead, the curvature is different in
one direction, creating a loss of focus in certain directions.
For example, a person with astigmatism might be able to
read a street sign horizontally, but would not be able to
read the same sign at equal distance if the sign was
vertical.

Headaches, eye strain and squinting are indicators of
astigmatism. In certain cases, astigmatism is not
problematic. However, when astigmatism is an issue,
children could begin to' ignore the affected eye and rely
solely on the fully functioning eye. The degree of
astigmatism in infants often decreases in the first year or
two of life, so parents needn't worry too much. If detected
early, chances are children will be prescribed eyeglasses
that should alleviate the problem.

-,Blepharitis: Blepharitis refers to an inflammation of the
edge of the eyelid, resulting in a burning or stinging
sensation and possibly an itch. Parents often mistake
blepharitis with allergies because children typically rub
their eyes frequently and, in advanced cases, might have


For some kids, eyeglasses are the best way to combat common vision problems.


redness on the internal edge of the eyelids.

Blepharitis typically proves very irritating to children
and, because rubbing their eyes is a common result, they
might develop other inflammatory problems such as a stye.
If a child has blepharitis, gently clean the eyelids and
eyelashes to eliminate bacteria and debris. Also, apply a
warm washcloth to the eyes for 5 minutes, three times per
,;day. Heat will improve blood flow and help relieve-the'
inflammation.

SStye: A stye is a bacterial infection that occurs near the
edge of the eyelid. Styes are not common in adults because
adults are generally more inclined to clean their eyelids
and eyelashes and are therefore less susceptible to bacterial
infections. Children, however, are not always so diligent.
An external stye will infect an oil gland near Ithe edge of
the eyelid, while an internal stye begins deep in the eyelid
and extends out to the edge. Antibiotics might be necessary
to treat a stye and, similar to treating blepharitis, parents
should apply a warm washcloth with soap specifically
designed for eyelids for 5 minutes 3 times per day.

Dear Classified Guys,
Every week when I pick up the news-
paper, I scan the employment sec-
tion. Not because I need work, but I
like to make sure I still have a good
job with competitive pay. When I see
one paying less, I feel better about
going to work the next day. During
my weekly scan, I've seen some pret-
ty strange ads. One was a flag com-
pany that needed someone to climb
flagpoles and install ornaments at
the top. Not quite the job for me
since I'm afraid of heights. Then last
week I saw an ad for someone to
consult as an "in-field mattress
inspector". I thought it was a joke
until I saw the salary. It's more than I
make. I figure I'm qualified since I
sleep on a mattress every night.
How hard can inspecting one be?
I'm considering answering this
ad, but before I apply, can
you tell me what a mattress .
inspector really does? I'm Q "
hoping there are naps involved.

Carry: It would be nice to
Shave ajob where napping is a require-
ment. I'm sure a lot of people would be
lining up to apply.
Cash: It's probably the only inter-
view where you could show up with a


pillow and blanket.
Carry: Despite how the title sounds,
"mattress inspectors" don't get to lie
around all day, In fact, the job requires
quite a bit of travel.,
Cash: In-field mattress inspectors are
more like investigators. Here's how it
works. Let's say you bought a mattress
from a major manufacturer. A few years
later, after several backaches, you think
your mattress is defective or sagging too
much. You contact the manufacturer
and request a replacement under the
warranty. The manufacturer hires an
independent company who then inspects
your mattress to determine if it is faulty.
Carry: That's where the mattress
inspector comes in. Their job is to travel


to your house and determine if the mat-
tress is defective. However, instead of'
lying down and taking a nap, they make
a visual inspection of the mattress, box
spring and frame. They may also take
some basic measurements and photo-
graphs as well.
Cash: The information is passed onto
the company to determine if the mat-
tress qualifies for replacement or repair
under the warranty. Regardless of the
outcome, the inspection company is
paid for their services.
Carry: If you like to travel and meet
with people, then it may be a good job
for you. But if your goal is to lie down
on the job, you probably need to look
elsewhere.


zzz
Most of us never get enough sleep,
which can make for a long tiring day at
work. That growing number of weary
workers is gaining the attention of com-
panies as it impacts the bottom line.
Reduced productivity due to sleep dep-
rivation is estimated to cost businesses
About 18 billion dollars a year accord-
ing to Psychology Today. Considering
the potential losses, more and more
companies are encouraging break times
or offering napping rooms for employ-
ees to refresh themselves. The only
thing better would be to have someone
else do your job while you're resting.
AllTucked In
"Sleep tight" is one of those phrases
many parents use when they tuck their
children into bed for the evening. Yet
it's origin is believed to date back.far
beyond our grandparents generation.
Back in the 16th and 17th.centuries, a
mattress was typically made from straw
or down. It was then placed on a lattice
of ropes suspended from a wood frame.
The.ropes often required regular tight-
ening, which in turn created the phrase
"sleep tight".

The Softer Side
Theretail world of selling mattress-
es can be very competitive. The owner
of the store.where I work has a policy'
that any mattress can be returned with-
in 20 days for a full refund, To be hon-
est, most people never have a problem.
Last week, however, I received one of
those rare calls for return.
A woman named Rhonda told me
that she loved the bedroom set she
bought. but HIenr, c.,uldn't stand the
soft mnress. "He's been restless v
e' er, nihit," she complained. "We've
tried switching sides and flipping the
mattress, but he finally gave up and
slepi on the floor"
"That's horrible," I replied. "Does
your husband have a bad back?"
"Oh, Henry's not my husband," she
said. "He's my basset hound!"

$50,000 awaits man


--but where is he?


Man saves driver


in sinking car


By Adam H: Beasley
The Miami Herald (MCT)
Randy Chapman is oft-ar-
rested, possibly homeless and
-- court records show.-- has a
habit of showing up drunk on
public property.
He's also in line for a small
fortune. Somebody needs to
tell him.
Chapman, 51, is due at
least $50,000 left to him by
aunt Pearl Hauenstein, who
died in 2000, his family said.
If Chapman doesn't claim the
money in the next two years,
it goes to the state of Indiana.
Mae Lou Howard figures
her cousin Chapman needs it
more. The problem is that she
can't find him.
The family hasn't heard
from him in 19 years.
After a difficult childhood,
he moved at 17 to Kentucky,
then to South Florida in the'
late 1970s. He has been ar-"
rested seven times since 1981.
-- including once two weeks
ago -- and gives police a dif-
ferent address nearly every
time. Howard fears he has no
address at all.
"I would hate to think that
his future was mine, that I
had no hope, no dreams,, no
future;" Howard said from
Mitchell,Ind. "Whatever he ,:
gets 'tody: might be his last
meal." :
And so, for the second time
in two decades, the search is
on for Chapman. '
Back in the late 1980s,;


Chapman's family made a
push to find him. Chapman's
brother Steve had leukemia
and needed a bone marrow
transplant. They thought
Randy might be a match.
HEADLINE NEWS
The family located Chap-.
man in South Florida. But,
Chapman .wanted $1,000, to
take the test, a demand that
spawned a memorable Indi-
anapolis Star headline ,-
Randy Chapman earns his:
blood money -- aS well as'
some scornful coverage in
the National Enquirer (I can't
believe my own brother is
being so cold, blared the
headline).
In the end, the test showed
he wasn't a suitable match.
That's the last time anyone
back .home has heard from
him. ,
Now, Howard is trying'
again, with the help of a fam-
ily friend, private investiga-
tor Lanny Williams.
' "He doesn't want, to be
found," Williams said. "She
felt sorry for him in the past,
and there wasn't anything the
family could do for him.
Now they can."
ARREST RECORD
It appears the onlyindeli-
ble mark Chapman has made
in South Florida has been on
a police blotter. There's a,
high likelihood he's alive,
considering he was arrested
just two weeks: ago on.
charges hee trespassed at .a


city of Miami school.
He has given the same ad-
dress to police after 'the last
several arrests but has alter-
nated his.hometown between
Fort Lauderdale and IMiami;
The Fort Lauderdale ad-
dress Chapman gives is an
apartment complex called
,Community Acres, but man-,
ager Nancy Vickas says no,
one by that name has lived
there at least in the past 18
years.- The Miami version.
does not exist on the map..
Howard fears her cousin's
true home is on the streets.
And she knows $50,000 can
quickly be misspent.
"It does worry me," she
said, "If it isn't stolen from
him, it might be wasted. But
he deserves a life. He hasn't
had anything up to now:"
Miami Herald staff writers
Erika Beras and Monika Z.
Leal contributed to this re-
port.

By Jose Iglesias, Gina Pace
'The Miami Herald
(MCT)
As soon as he saw the Nis-
san sedan veer off the Turn-
pike and into:,a canal Thurs-
Sday night, Jose Nishijima's
instincts kicked in.
He jerked his car to a stop
on the highway's shoulder,
jumped out and leapt into the
.cold, muddy wafer. The Nis-
san was sinking fast, hardly
visible from the surface. All
he could hear was a woman
screaming for help.
Nishijima tried breaking
the driver's window with a
rock, but that didn't work. He
yelled for the woman' inside.
to roll down her window.
When she did, the car
. plunged even farther into the
12-foot deep canal.
"I reached in and grabbed
whatever I could -- hair,
hands, anything," Nishijima
said in Spanish from his
Southwest Miami-Dade
home late Thursday,
He pulled the woman out
through her window open-
ing, and other passersby
helped drag her to the canal
bank. They kept her warm
and alert until paramedics ar-
rived.
"When got there, Jose
had tears in his eyes," said
Miami-Dade fire rescue Lt.
Eddy Ballester. "All I could
do was give him a hug and
tell him" he saved that
woman's life."


The woman, whose name
was not released but was said
to be in her 40s, was: taken to
Kendall Regional Medical
Center, where she was recov-
ering from scrapes and bruis-
es, Ballester said.
The woman was driving
southbound on Florida's
Turnpike just before 7 p.m.
when her vehicle was hit
from behind, Ballester said.
It slid down the embankment
and into a canal near the
Southwest Eighth Street exit.
It is unknown if the other dri-
ver was cited in the accident.
SAfter Nishijima pulled her
to safety and realized no one
else was trapped in the car,
he told the woman she would
be all right. He did not take
credit for the rescue.
"I told her God had saved
her," Nishijima said.
SNishijima, 39, was, on his
way home from his ware-
house job with his 30-year-
old future stepson and anoth-
er man when he saw the car
go off the road.
THE RESCUE
He pulled off his blue polo
shirt, kicked off his shoes
and dropped his cellphone to
the ground before jumping
in. He doesn't remember
what the water felt like.
"I didn't feel anything," he
said. "I just wanted to get as
many people out as I could."
But Ballester said the wa-
ter was pitch black and cold -
- and filled with weeds and


muck.
Miami-Dade rescue divers
searched the .submerged car
for other victims, but the
woman was the only one
who had been inside.
The effort- left Nishijima
exhausted, 'he said. As res-
cuers arrived, Nishijima was
resting on the canal bank
while his son and others
tended to the woman.
"The man is a hero,"
Ballester said. "A true Good
Samaritan."
Nishijima moved to South
Florida in March after about
seven years in New Jersey.
He's set, to marry his fiancee
next Friday.
It wasn't the first time
Nishijima has been a hero in
the water.
'GOD IS WITH ME'
About eight years ago, he
saved a boy from drowning
off the beach in his native
Peru. More recently, he
brought his fiancee to safety
after a boat they were in cap-
sized in Pennsylvania.
After Thursday's incident,
Nishijima said. he was re-
lieved to know the woman
would be all right.
Medics had to bandage
Nishijima's hand, which he
injured trying to break the
car's window. He didn't mind
the injury, and he said he
wouldn't hesitate to do it
again.
"I never think something
like this is going to happen,"
he said. "But I believe God is
with me."
