during the game, one of
the girls will be
crowned LHS Home-

Dahlia Purcell teachers and says she is
very grateful to them for
helping her become a better stu-
dent and always encouraging

her goals. "I actually don't
have a favorite teacher
because each of my
teachers have touched
me in their own special
way," Barry said.
Walker is the daugh-
ter of Dave and Jetti
Walker, and the grand-
daughter of Scott and
Beth Walker. She is rep-
resenting her. seventh

Have you ever doubted
whether or not you'll go to
Heaven when you die?
What causes this doubt?
What is the cure? First, lack
of knowledge is a cause of
doubt (II Peter 1:9). In or-
der to become knowledge-
able you must STUDY (II
Timothy 2:15). Study is
hard work (Ecclesiastes
12:12) but if you want to
have confidence in your sal-
vation you must have a
knowledge of God's Word.

Heart Matters
JLJL~~~~h^C^JL~~~ h ~A^m I^ A^y ^*^ ^ ;*


Two heads are better than one. Any-
one working on a project knows that it's
usually a good idea to have the opinion
of others to help make a decision. One
head, (our own) will give us limited in-
formation, knowledge and perspective,
while two immediately doubles that ter-
ritory.
When it comes to relationships, not
only are two heads better than one, two
hearts are a necessity. In order for any
relationship to grow, strengthen and
weather conflict, both hearts need to be
engaged, plugged in and committed to
being together. When leaving the rela-
tionship is an option, it will always
"seem to be the easy way out." Walking
away may seem easy-in the heat of con-
flict, but anyone who has been divorced,
or have separated themselves from a par-
ent, child, sibling or anyone they love
knows that is no piece of cake either. We
all need people in our life that we know
are there for the long haul, even when
we blow it... especially then.
This saying came from the Old Testa-
ment book of Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, where
the Bible says "Two are better than one
because they have a good return for their
work. If one falls down his friend can
help him up. But pity the man who falls


and has no one to
help him up." The .
good reltilurn men-
tioned here gives ref- '
erence to the fact that
two people can ac-
complish more than Angie Land
one person alone, but
it also implies a more satisfying reward.
Isn't it just better when something good
happens to have someone to share it
with? It is just not the same to have to
keep it to yourself! This also works well
the other way-bad days seem a little
"less bad" when we have someone to
talk it out with, give us a hug, and re'-
mind us of our blessings! This is what
"helping up" looks like-encouraging the
one who has fallen to get back up and
plug back into life. What is so interest-
ing is that this word for friend can mean
everything from an intimate relationship
with a spouse, family member, or life-
long friend, to a brand new friend or ac-
quaintance. Draw support from the peo-
ple God places in your path, even if it
may be just for a season. Take the time
to give that support to whoever is in
your path as well-because two are better
than one and your heart matters.
Blessings, Angie


Nation's first baby boomer files for

Social Security retirement benefits


At an event hosted by Michael J. Astrue,
Commissioner of Social Security, the na-
tion's first Baby Boomer, Kathleen Casey-
Kirschling, filed for her Social Security re-
tirement benefits online at HYPERLINK
"http: / / www.socialsecurity.gov/"
www.socialsecurity.gov. Ms. Casey-
Kirschling, who was born one second after
midnight on January 1, 1946, will be eligible
for benefits beginning January 2008.
"I know how important Social Security
benefits are to Americans of all walks of
life," Commissioner Astrue said. "Kathy has
reached a personal milestone -
she has made the
transition from the
workforce to retire-
ment. I could not be
more pleased that she has chosen to make
this transition by filing for her benefits on-
line."

As the nation's first Baby Boomer, Ms.
Casey-Kirschling is leading what is often re-
ferred to as America's silver tsunami. Over
the next two decades, nearly 80 million
Americans will become eligible for Social Se-


curity benefits, more than 10,000 per day. To
prepare for this wave of new filers, Social Se-
curity has developed a wide range of online
services.
"Filing for Social Security benefits online
is easy and convenient," said Ms. Casey-
Kirschling. Save a trip and do business with
Social Security from the comfort of your
home or office."
Social Security's online services are conve-
nient and secure. In The Federal American
Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) Score-
card, .Social Security's
S* \ online benefit applica-
V tion has the highest
m score among all federal
websites followed closely by So-
cial Security's application for extra help with
Medicare drug costs." ACSI notes "Their re-
spective scores of 88 and 87 put them in the
elite company of online private sector satis-
faction leaders like Amazon.com and Barnes
& Noble."
"Social Security provides economic pro-
tection to millions of Americans and their
families," Commissioner Astrue said. "And
we remain committed to providing the pub-
lic with the highest quality service possible.
Boomers have always been a generation of
trendsetters. Kathy is leading the way by do-
ing business with.Social Security online."

Getting energy from corn in CnservationReserve

Suihm itted bi u: First Grade Sci- ... ... -. .. .. ... .. .... v ..- .


dentists
In September our LES 1st
grade "Scientists," were able
to see first hand where the
energy their body needs
comes from. Mr. Terry Cook
provided our first graders
pieces of corn to eat, which
he grew in his garden. We
have been studying about
people and energy.
Ask any 1st grader and
they will tell you that most
energy on earth comes from
the sun. The sun gives off
light and heat. Plants, like
our corn, use sunlight to
grow our food from which
we get energy. Energy from
food helps our body grow
and stay healthy.
Eating healthy food makes
our 'body strong and keeps
us from getting sick. We
also discussed how the ener-
gy we get from food, would
give us the energy to shuck
and clean the corn, like Mr.
Greg Cook did for us. Ask
your child (grandchild, etc.)
and they will tell you even
more about what they are
learning in Science class.

The U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) has
begun distributing approx-
imately $3'1 million in
Conservation Reserve Pro-
gram (CRP) rental pay-
ments to program partici-
pants in Florida, an-
nounced Kevin L. Kelley,
State Executive Director of
the USDA
Farm Service Agency
(FSA). These fiscal year
2008 payments are for
completed performance in
the prior fiscal year.
"By participating in CRP,
producers and other
landowners throughout
the nation are improving
air and water quality, en-
hancing wildlife habitat
and reducing erosion,"
said Kelley. "These prac-
tices are making a real dif-
ference today and promot-
ing a healthier environ-
ment for the next genera-
tion."
Producers holding about
782,000 contracts on
441,000 farms across the
nation will receive an aver-
age of $49.49 per acre for a
total of about $1.8 billion
in CRP rental payments.
The number of contracts is
higher than the number of
farms because some pro-
ducers may have multiple
contracts on a single farm.
The payments allow pro-
ducers to earn an average
of $4,130 per farm enrolled
in the program.
In Florida, producers
currently have approxi-
mately 1,914 contracts for
82,763 acres enrolled in
CRP on 1,563 farms in 19
counties.
Included in the national
totals are 355,000 contracts
(3.9 million acres) for
CRP's continuous sign-up


and 427,000 contracts (32.9
million acres) for general
sign-up. Under continu-
ous sign-up, producers
may enroll high priority
conservation practices such
as filter strips and riparian
buffers at any time without
competition.
Currently, enrollment
stands at 36.8 million acres,
making CRP the largest
public-private partnership
for conservation and
wildlife habitat in the Unit-
ed States. This voluntary
program helps agricultural
producers enhance envi-
ronmentally sensitive land.
Producers enroll in CRP
and plant long-term, re-'
source-conserving covers
to improve water quality,
control soil erosion and en-
hance habitats for water-
fowl and wildlife. In re-
turn, USDA provides pro-
ducers with rental pay-
ments. CRP contract dura-
tion is from 10 to 15 years.
USDA issues other CRP
payments throughout the
year. These payments in-
clude a 50 percent expense
reimbursement for estab-
lishing cover as well as in,
centive payments for en-
rolling eligible high priori-
ty conservation practices.

ber of contracts, number of

the process, they never
gave up fighting regard-
less of how much pain and
loss they endured.
These brave men and
women served iM a variety
of capacities, whether on
the battle field or here at
home. For example, there
were several women in the
county enlisted to devote
their lives as nurses and in
other capacities during
World War II in order to
assist the physicians care
for the wounded as well as
to lend words of comfort.
In honor of our county's
heroes, two memorials
were erected in the county
several years ago, one in
Day and the other in front
of the courthouse in Mayo.
Earlier this year, veterans
were honored again with
the renaming of the park
in Mayo to Veterans
Memorial Park of Mayo.
Just recently, members of
the Lafayette County
chapter of the American
Legion participated in the
2007 Pioneer Day parade.
They held the American
flag and the American Le-
gion flag while leading the
parade down mainstreet
on Oct. 13.
In addition to remem-
bering and honoring the
deceased veterans of
Lafayette County, we will
also be saluting those who
are still with us today.
In his annual Veterans
Day Proclamation, dated
Oct. 31, President George
W. Bush, encouraged
every American to observe
this important day to
salute and thank the veter-
ans who gave their lives in
order to make it possible
for us to continue to enjoy
the freedoms granted to us
by the constitution and the
bill of rights. "Throughout
our history, America has
been protected by patriots
who cherished liberty and
made great sacrifices to
advance the cause of free-
dom. The brave members
of the United States
Armed Forces have an-
swered the call to serve
our Nation, ready to give
all for their country. On
Veterans Day, we honor
these extraordinary Amer-
icans for their service and
sacrifice, and we pay trib-
ute to the legacy of free-
dom.and peace that they
have given our great Na-
tion," Pres. Bush said.
In addition, he pro-
claimed Nov. 11 through
Nov. 17 as National Veter-
ans Awareness Week. Ac-
cording to Pres. Bush, it is
important that we also
take time during the week


to show appreciation for
the veterans of our nation
who gave their lives for
freedom, whether it be as
simple as a hug and a
handshake, or community
patriotic events.
The first proclamation of
a Veterans Day observance
was in 1919 when Presi-
dent Woodrow Wilson
dedicated Nov.. 11 as
Armistice Day, according
to the Veterans Adminis-
tration. Decades later, in
1954, President Dwight
Eisenhower, with the
stroke of a signing pen,
changed the name to Vet-
erans Day, keeping Nov.
11 as the official date of
this national day of obser-
vance.

Honori

By Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-FL)
Each November 11, our
country comes together to
honor the millions of
brave men and women
who have served our
country in uniform. Vet-
erans Day gives us the
opportunity to express
our collective gratitude to
the 24 million veterans in
America for their noble
service to our country


ng our

and reaffirm our commit-
ment to them. We also
must remember that our
troops currently serving
in Iraq, Afghanistan, and
around the world will be-
come the veterans of to-
morrow. Our support for
these men and women
does not end once they
return home. Our nation
has a proud legacy of ap-
preciation to the men and
women who have worn


veteran,

the uniform in defense of
this country. We must be
united in seeing that
every soldier, sailor, air-
man, and marine is wel-
comed back with all the
care and compassion our
grateful country can be-
stow.
In Washington, I am
working hard to keep the
promises we have made
to our veterans. This
year, Congress passed


s today

legislation to increase the
Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) budget by
$6.7 billion above the
2007 level, the largest in-
crease in our nation's his-
tory. Included in the
House-passed fiscally re-
sponsible budget, the pro-
posed increase will pro-
vide the VA with a total
of $43.2 billion for med-
ical care and veterans'
health programs. The bill


and tomorrow


also provides additional
claims processing person-
nel and facility improve-
ments so that veterans
will receive better health-
care, more mental health
and post-traumatic stress
disorder services, and
shorter waiting times for
doctors' appointments.
At home, I also am
working to make sure
that the critical needs of
our veterans are ad-

dressed. Earlier this year,
I announced that a new
community-based outpa-
tient clinic (CBOC) will be
coming to Jackson Coun-
ty. This new clinic is an
extraordinary victory for
our veterans in North
Florida. Currently, veter-
ans in Jackson County
and surrounding areas
must travel to Panama
City, Tallahassee, Lake
City, Pensacola, or Biloxi,
Mississippi, for their
healthcare needs, result-
ing in long travel times
and overcrowding at
these facilities. The VA
anticipates that 3,574 ex-
isting patients and 310
new patients will be treat-
ed at the new CBOC in
Jackson County. Veterans
in Jackson County and
surrounding areas have
traveled too far, for too
long, to get the healthcare
they need and deserve,
and the new clinic will
ensure that North Flori-
da's veterans have more
convenient access to prop-
er medical care.
We are making great
strides to provide our vet-
erans with first-rate and
uncompromised benefits.
As a combat veteran my-
self, I am proud of the
work we are doing in
Congress to fulfill our
moral obligation to those
who have defended our
great couiqtry. However,
our work is far from over.
In 2008, the number of
veterans receiving treat-
ment is expected to in-
clude over 300,000 men
and women returning
from Iraq and
Afghanistan. We must
prepare to care for the
veterans of current con-
flicts by seriously ad-
dressing the long term
healthcare needs of our
combat veterans.
As thousands more sol-
diers come back from Iraq
and Afghanistan, it is our
duty to provide sufficient
resources so that our vet-
erans can receive the
quality care they were
promised and deserve.
Through the responsible
budget passed by Con-
gress this year and ade-
quate federal funding that
Congress is poised to pro-
vide in the upcoming
year, we can enhance our
veterans' programs and
honor the commitment
that we have made to our
veterans[ This Veterans
Day, as we show our re-
spect and gratitude for
the men and women who
bravely answered the call
to duty, including the
75,000 veterans living in
North Florida, let us also
recognize their service by
providing our veterans
with the respect, benefits,
and services they have
earned and deserve now
and in the future.

The afayette girl soccer team will open

they travel to Taylor County to face the
Lady Bulldogs. Coach John Dekle will lead
his team in only their second season of
competition. Twenty-two members will

will include some returning veteran play-

eye-foot coordination. My
father never could get into
basketball but he has al-
ways liked soccer and he
is excited that I am play-
ing soccer."
While most first year
players come into a soccer
season with some fear,
Huerta says that is not the
case with her. "No, I am
not afraid to play. I am ex-
cited and looking forward
to our first game," she
said. The Lady Hornets
soccer team will play a ju-
nior varsity schedule next
season but Huerta is confi-
dent that a varsity squad
will be in place next year.'
"I think they are planning
to dress'a varsity team
next year," she said. "We
had 40 girls out this year.
With that many we could


field two complete teams
and have a varsity and ju-
nior varsity next season. I
suppose it will depend on
the finances but we should
have two complete teams
next year."
Huerta says she wishes
that she had started earlier
in soccer "...but you can
never replace the feeling
of being on a basketball
team."
"This team is like my
own family," said Huerta.
"I love soccer. I know it is
tougher training but I.am
so excited about playing
this year."
With it being her first
season of competition, still
Huerta hopes to contribute
this year as a player. "We
need so score some goals
and win some games," she
said. "I hope to be able to
contribute in my first year


and help to win some games. I
would love to see us build a legacy
in soccer much like what the girls
basketball team has done."
Practicing with returning players
from last year has helped Huerta


thus far this season. "Soccer is about
control. That is something I have
learned from last year's team. When
you are playing soccer just for fun,
you can do anything. When you get
on the field against another team you


have to understand that it is compe-
tition and not just having fun."
Huerta believes it will be a good
season for the Lady Hornets soccer
team and she wants to be part of its
success.

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE PROJECT


Florida Atlantic University will host nationally televised debates


Florida Atlantic University in
Boca Raton has been selected to
host two live debates featuring the
major Republican and Democratic
candidates for President. The an-
nouncement was made by Decision
2008: Before You Vote, a partner-
ship that includes Leadership Flori-
da, the Florida Press Association
and the Florida Public Broadcast-
ing Service Inc., which has joined


with NBC News/MSNBC to pro-
duce the debates that will air LIVE
on MSNBC on Jan. 23 and 25,
2008, before a nationwide audi-
ence.
"We at FAU are thrilled by the
opportunity to host debates of such
compelling national significance,"
said FAU President Frank T. Bro-
gan. "In addition to fulfilling our
educational mission to inform


Florida's electorate, we look for-
ward to also educating millions of
others as we roll out the red carpet
and welcome these presidential
candidates and the national spot-
light that accompanies them to
our campus."
Wendy Abberger, president of
Leadership Florida, said the Deci-
sion 2008: Before You Vote debate
series is expected to generate a na-


tional television audience in the
millions in what is shaping up to be
a key week in the presidential pri-
mary season. In addition, the part-
nership will produce two one-hour
pre- debate specials on Florida
Public Broadcasting TV and radio
stations that will feature a panel of
Florida journalists who will pre-
view the contests.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the Flori-


da Legislature propelled Florida to
the front of the electoral process by
moving up the date of the Florida
primary from early March to Jan.
29. As a result, Florida voters have
a new, highly visible and critical
role in the national race for presi-
dent.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!


Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

Sleeping Disorders: A Reality for Children, Too


When it comes to sleeping disorders, adults can often
identify a handful of reasons that might be making it hard for
them to catch some Zs. Be it added stress at work, bills
mounting up or familial concerns, adults typically can point
to one or two things that might be causing their insomnia.
In children, however, problems sleeping can be a little more
(perplexing. After all, kids don't need to worry about bills or
bosses breathing down their neck. But that doesn't mean kids
can't experience trouble sleeping. Unfortunately, if a child is
struggling to sleep, it could be indicative of any of the
following sleeping disorders.
Night terrors: Night terrors typically occur in children
between the ages of 3 to 12. Akin to nightmares, night terrors
are characterized by periods of intense crying and fear, with
an average episode lasting 1 to 2 minutes (though an episode
can continue for up to 30 minutes). Unlike nightmares, night
'terrors are not recalled by the child the next day. In addition,
-while nightmares occur during REM (rapid eye movement)
-sleep, night terrors occur during non-REM sleep, typically 90
'minutes after a child has fallen asleep.
Night terrors can be very disruptive and frightening for
families, as a child will appear to be genuinely terrified even
though they are asleep. Episodes are frequent and recurring,
and are often accompanied by an elevated heart rate, an
increased breathing rate, and heavy sweating. While there is
no uniform cause of night terrors, stressful life events, fever,
,trouble sleeping, and certain medications that affect the
nervous system might be causes.
Somnambulism: Commonly referred to as "sleepwalking"
somnambulism occurs when a child sits up in bed with their
eyes open, but in reality is not seeing anything. Children can
remain in bed during an episode, or get up and walk around.
In some cases, children might even leave the house. Episodes
-'are more common in male school-aged children.
Parents can tell if their child is awake or sleepwalking by
several indicators. Glassy eyes that are more fixated than
attentive is one symptom. Children who walk around the
house will have a blank stare in their eyes as opposed to their
eyes moving around like they normally would when walking.
If parents talk to a child during an episode, their responses, if
they respond at all, will be slow and not necessarily coherent.
"In addition, if a child is not woken up during an episode but
simply returns to sleep, they likely won't recall the episode
jthe next morning.
- Nocturnal Enuresis: Typically a normal part of bladder
'control development, nocturnal enuresis bedwettingg) is
common among children ages 4 and under. Primary
nocturnal enuresis, however, is bedwetting that occurs in
children over the age of 5 or 6. In such cases, children cannot
consistentlyy stay dry at night, and this could be the result of
several factors.
Since bedwetting is not an intentional act, it might be due
to delayed growth and development, low levels of ADH
antidiureticc hormone), social or psychological factors, or
simply a small bladder capacity. In some cases, children
sleep so soundly they simply don't wake up when they need


Children who have trouble sleeping could be fighting any of a
number of sleeping disorders.

to relieve themselves.
Insomnia: This disorder is classified as trouble falling to
sleep or maintaining sleep. Stress and depression are two
underlying causes of insomnia in children. Oftentimes poor
sleep habits, such as inconsistent sleep schedules, falling asleep
outside of the bed and others can worsen insomnia.
Ways to combat long-term insomnia include:
Avoiding caffeine, in any form, four to six hours before
bedtime (chocolate, colas, tea).
Avoiding a heavy meal in the evening. On the other hand, a
light snack before bedtime may be sleep-inducing.
Avoiding naps. If your child must take a daytime nap, it
should be for less than an hour and should be completed before
3 p.m.
Going to bed only when sleepy.
Not using the bed or bedroom for non-sleeping activities,
such as eating, talking on phone, homework, etc. Bed/bedroom
should be used for sleeping purposes only.
Sleeping disorders are never intentional, as no child wants to
have trouble sleeping. Punishment or shaming children will not
help the problem, and could very well make it worse. Instead,
consult your child's physician if you suspect your child has a
sleeping disorder.

CAN YOU COUNT ALL OF YOUR BLESSINGS?


By Pam Campbell



,f ere we are again in that wonderful time of
year, fall! This month brings us such a
joyful holiday, Thanksgiving. A time to
join with family and friends for a big feast and a chance to
spend time together, a time to count your blessings. I know
that we all have something to be thankful for, you may not
have everything the way you want it or have everything that
you want, you may not even have much at all,.but if you are
reading this article you have several things that I know of to
be thankful for, you know how to read, that is definitely a
blessing! If you are reading, then you have an even greater
blessing to be thankful for; it means that you are alive! I
wonder how many blessings each of us can count? I am
quite sure that we could never actually count them all.
Some of the blessings that we have are easy to think of,
food, clothes, family, friends, a home, jobs, school, maybe a
car, toys, and pets. But how many millions of blessings do
we not even realize or think about that are blessings from
God? Proverbs 10:6a "Blessings crown the head of the
righteous." The Lord loves his children and loves to pour
out his blessings on us.
Most of us probably have sung the hymn "Count Your
Blessings" many, many times. The words of this great hymn
were written by Johnson Oatman, Jr. Count Your Blessings
Was first published in 1897 in the songbook, "Songs for
Young People." This song was considered to be Johnson
Oatman's finest song out of 5,000 that he penned. I am sure
that this man would be amazed that 110 years later, it is still
found in most hymn books and song books and sung in
most churches. This is a wonderful song that always seems
to be so perfect for Thanksgiving, although it is a song that
should be sung year round, as we.should always be
counting our blessings!
Let's take a look at the words to the song "Count Your
Blessings."
Count Your'Blessing-s
Verse 1 .
When upon life's billows You are tempest tossed, When you
are discouraged Thinking all is lost, Count your many
blessings Name them one by one, And it will surprise you
What the Lord hath done.
Well I imagine that all of us have felt the way it is described
in the first words, like we were being tossed around in the
trials of life, feeling discouraged and thinking that it was
hopeless. But like the verse says even if you are at that
place, count your blessings, you will always be surprised at
what the Lord has done.
Verse 2
Are you ever burdened With a load of care, Does the cross
seem heavy You are called to bear. Count your many.
blessings Every doubt will fly, And you will be singing As
the days go by.
When you feel overburdened, worried, have too much
stress, like you can't bear what you are going through, you
iieed to learn to count your blessings. Then the doubts that
come from the enemy, you know the ones that say you can't
make it, those doubts and worries will leave, and you will
have a song in your heart and mind.
Verse 3
When you look at others With their lands and gold, Think
that Christ has promised You His wealth untold. Count your
many blessings Money cannot buy, Your reward in heaven
Nor your home on high.
I know that when people start counting their blessings they
think of the ones like food, family, friends, clothes, you
know the normal things that we see around us. Many think
of the things that they own, and the money that they have as
their great blessings but this verse here is telling you that
land, gold, money, while they are indeed a blessing if you
have them, they are not the most important blessings. He
says here that we should count our blessings that money
can't buy, our rewards in heaven and our salvation and our
eternal home in heaven.

Verse 4
So amid the conflict Whether great or small, Do not be
discouraged God is over all. Count your many blessings
Angels will attend, Help and comfort give you To your
journey's end.-

In this last verse you see that no matter what the problem
or conflict, it doesn't matter if it is big or small, God is in
control of all of them. You should not get discouraged, he
has his angels with you, he will always help you, comfort
you and be there for you as long as you live.
Read the words to the chorus and get them into your mind
and spirit. Sing them aloud or inyour mind, it is time to get
the words of this chorus into your mind and not forget how
blessed you really are.
Chorus:
Count your blessings Name them one by one. Count your
blessings See what God hath done. Count your blessings
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings See what God hath done.
This chorus is very simple, yet it has a powerful message
to us. If we will remember to count our blessings, to name
all that we can, we will see that God has done so much for
us that we will want keep on singing! When you are going
through some of the places that the song speaks of in the
verses such as discouragement, burdens, not enough
money, too much stress, conflicts and problems remember
to Count Your Blessings and God will help you, he will
bless you with what you need for the circumstances in your
life every time.
Yes, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to sing the hymn
"Count Your Blessings." Maybe your family can take a few
minutes this Thanksgiving Day to sing the hymn together
and spend some time sharing with each other about the
blessings that you are thankful for. If you gre alone, sing it
to the Lord, he is there with you.
I was looking through a magazine as I was waiting for an
appointment recently and saw a wonderful idea for families
to do for the Thanksgiving holiday. I say families, but this
could be done with just you alone with the Lord, or with a
church group, a school, a gathering of friends and family,
with anyone that would like to have a fun way to count
their blessings or tell what they are thankful for. You take a
branch and put it in a pot with gravel or decorative stones
to make it stand up like a tree. Cut out leaves from
construction paper in fall leaf colors, such as orange,
brown, yellow and red. Punch a hole in the top of each leaf.
Put the leaves and some short pieces of yarn or string in a
little basket or other container next to the branch tree. If
you want to you can even make a sign that says The
Blessing Tree, or Our Thankful Tree, or some other name
that you think of. On Thanksgiving Day and any other day
before and after the actual holiday that you have people
gathering, or you feel like adding a blessing, have each
person write what they are most thankful for, some of the
most important blessings that they can think of, especially
things from the past year that God has done. Everyone
writes the blessing or what they are thankful for on a leaf
and uses the yarn or string to hang the leaf on the branch
tree. It might be extra fun when you have a group gathered
to read some of the leaves aloud, so that everyone can
realize how great God's blessings are. When you have
family or friends gathered on Thanksgiving take time to
share some of God's blessings from the past year. Take
time to sing, and time to read God's word aloud. Take time
to pray together. Yes, Thanksgiving is a time to Count Your
Blessings!
When I look back over the past year, from last
Thanksgiving to this year, I truly see that the hand of God
has been at work so many, many times that I cannot count
all the blessings. You may have been sick and God healed
you, or injured and he made you well. You may have seen

him open the doors for a wonderful job, or he may have
helped you through a trying year, but you have come
through and have much to be thankful for.
Think about this, God blesses you in ways that you may
never have thought of, such as the automobile accident that
he kept you from being killed in, by things happening that
you thought were just annoyances that were making you
late.,You know maybe a phone call right when you are
leaving, your car not starting, you can't find your keys, you
forgot something and had to go back, you couldn't find
something you needed and looked and looked for it, think
about it, God may have been using one of these things as a
blessing, as a way to keep you out of harms way. What
about the times the Lord has kept you from catching an
illness, or from falling or tripping, from eating something
that would make us sick or being harmed in some other
way. You see we can start naming our blessings, we can
count them and we should, we will be surprised at all we
can think of that God has blessed us with and all that he has
done for us, but we will never know all of the blessings that
he does for us. If you are alive, if you are able to eat, talk,
do anything at all, be thankful! Your life is a big blessing!
Thanksgiving is also a wonderful time to not only count
our blessings, but to let God use us to be a blessing. There
are so many people that don't have many of the blessings
that some of us have. God would love it if we would share
some food with them, or invite them over to eat, maybe
you can take them a blessing basket full of foods, candy,
maybe a Bible or other book, small toys if there are
children, some flowers, whatever you think they could use
to help them realize that they to can count their blessings.
I heard a story that I want to share just a part of with
you. A family was planning their Thanksgiving dinner and
decided to invite a man named Jim to be a part of their
family celebration. This man lived all alone and was not
too well off financially. Jim was so very happy to be
included in the families plans and came to dinner and fit
right in with the family as they all celebrated Thanksgiving
together. When he was getting ready to go home that
evening, the mom handed him a bag full of food and treats,
including a big candy bar for him to take home with him.
He looked in the bag and smiled, and then handed it back
to the mom, and told her that he wanted her to give it to the
homeless man that he had heard the family talking about
during dinner. The mom told him that she had already
made up a big bag for the homeless man, and they were
taking it to him yet that evening. Jim smiled real big and
said that he wanted the homeless man to have both bags,
that the homeless man needed it more than Jim. You see
even though Jim did not have a lot, he knew that he still
had more blessings than the homeless man. They took both
bags to the homeless man and then he had blessings to
count, too. There are always people that have a need, there
is always someone that we can help, someone less
fortunate than ourselves. Make Thanksgiving a time to not
only Count Your Blessings, but to be a blessing to someone
else. You will find that when you give to others, you will
receive a blessing! 2Corinthians 9:7 says God loveth a
cheerful giver." Being a blessing is. something we should
try to be all the year through!
This year on Thanksgiving Day, be sure to count your
blessings, and also pray for the year ahead that you and
your family will continue to walk in God's blessings and
footsteps. So now I will ask you again, can you count all of
your blessings? I pray that you and your family will have a
very blessed Thanksgiving Holiday! Pam

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


CAN YOU COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS?


By Pam Campbell

Hey Kids! Can you believe that it is already fall? It is almost time for Thanksgiving! A
time to join with family and friends for a big feast with delicious foods like turkey and
dressing and pumpkin pie! It is a chance to spend time together with your family,. a time to
count your blessings. I know ,that we all have something to be thankful for. You may not
have everything the way you want it or have everything that you want, you may not even
have much at all, but if you are reading this article you have several things that I know of
to be thankful for. You know how to read or you have someone that cares about you
reading it to you, that is definitely a blessing! If you are alive then you have a real big
blessing, life! I wonder how many blessings each of us can count? I am quite sure that we
could never actually count them all. Some of the blessings that we have are easy to think
of, food, clothes, family, friends, teachers, a home, school, toys, and pets. But how many
millions of blessings do we not even realize or think about that are blessings from God?
Proverbs 10:6a "Blessings crown the head of the righteous." The Lord loves his children
and loves to pour out his blessings on you.
Most of you probably have sung the chorus "Count Your Blessings" many times. Let's
take a look at the words to the chorus of this song "Count Your Blessings." Read the words
to the chorus and get them into your head. Maybe you would like to go ahead and sing it
out loud right now!
Chorus:
Count your blessings Name them one by one. Count your blessings See what God hath
done. Count your blessings Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings See what God hath done.
This chorus is very simple, yet it has a important message to us. If we will remember to
count our blessings, we will see that God has done so much for us that we will want keep
on singing!
Yes, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to sing the chorus "Count Your Blessings."
Maybe your family can take a few minutes this Thanksgiving Day to sing the hymn
together and spend some time sharing with each other about the blessings that you are
thankful for.

sing, and time to read God's word aloud. Take time to pray together. Yes, Thanksgiving is a
time to Count Your Blessings!
: When I look back over the past year, from last Thanksgiving to this year, I truly see that
the hand of God has been at work so many, many times that I cannot count all the
blessings. You may have been sick and God healed you, or hurt and he made you well. God
may have helped you greatly in school, or he may be helping you now. Sometimes God
protects us from being hurt or even killed by having us go or not go somewhere at a certain
time. You see we can start naming our blessings, we can count them and we should, we
will be surprised at all we can think of that God has blessed us with and all that he has
done for us, but we will never know all of the blessings that he does for us. If you are alive,
if you are able to eat, talk, do anything at all, be thankful! Your life is a big blessing!
Thanksgiving is also a wonderful time to not only count our blessings, but to let God use
us to be a blessing. There are so many people that don't have many of the blessings that
some of us have. God would love it if we would share some food witf them, maybe you
can take them a blessing basket full of foods, candy, maybe a Bible or other book, small
toys if there are children, some flowers, whatever you think they could use to help them
realize that they to can count their blessings. Ask your parents or grandparents if they can
help you be a blessing to someone.
I heard a story that I want to share just a part of with you.
A family was planning their Thanksgiving dinner and

continue to walk in God's blessings and follow him. So
now I will ask you again, can you count all of your
blessings? I don't think that we can count that high! I pray
that you and your family will have a very blessed (386) 36

Debate


Continued From Page 1C

2008 project will occur on the
evening of Jan. 23, in advance
of Jan. 29 primaries in Florida
and South Carolina. The sec-
ond debate will occur two
days later on the evening of
Jan. 25. One week after the
Florida primary, voters in 24
states will go to the polls on
Feb. 5, 2008 the night that
likely will determine the 2008
nominees to become the 44th
president of the United States.
Letters of invitation have
been sent to each of the major
candidates for president and
the Florida and national chairs
of the Democratic and Repub-
lican parties. Organizers ex-
pect full participation, on ac-
count of Florida's pivotal im-
portance as a swing state


wielding 27 electoral votes
and because of the critical
timing of the state's primary
election.
"Florida Atlantic University
is a wonderful venue to host
the nationally televised de-
bates of Decision 2008:
Before You Vote, which will
provide voters here in Florida
and across the United States
with the opportunity to learn
more about the candidates and
issues in these two primary
contests," said Teala Milton,
chair of Leadership Florida
and chief public affairs officer
for JEA. "We're .thrilled that
all Americans will have the
opportunity to tune in to these
spirited and substantive de-
bates."
Both debates, will take
place on FAU's campus in


Boca Raton and will be broad-
cast LIVE on MSNBC and on
Florida Public Television and
Radio. Additionally, most of
the NBC affiliates in Florida
have expressed interest in
broadcasting the debates live.
The debate will also stream
live at msnbc.com. Further
information about the telecast
of the debates, including
times, moderators and format
will be announced at a later
date.
"NBC News is pleased to
join with the Decision 2008:
Before You Vote partnership
to bring these debates
from the key state of Flori-
da to a national audience,"
said Philip Alongi, executive
producer of NBC News Spe-
cial Events. "We look forward
to working with such experi-


enced partners on this impor-
tant debate."
Marty Petty, chair of the
Florida Press Association and
publisher of the St. Petersburg
Times, said the partnership
promises to deliver Florida
voters dynamic, fair and rigor-
ous forums for the major can-
didates to present themselves
and their policy prescriptions
to Americans.
"Florida's newspapers have
a long and distinguished track
record of providing our citi-
zens the distinctive political
coverage and forums neces-
sary to ensure rich discourse
and engagement in the demo-
cratic process. There has nev-
er been a more important time
for the citizens of Florida or
the country to participate. And
the Florida Press Association


is proud to help set the pace."
Indeed, Florida newspapers
will devote substantial space
to covering the races involved
and, through the Florida Press
Association, also will promote
viewership of the live
statewide debate .series
through the donation of
prominent advertising space.
Jose A. Fajardo, chairman
of Florida Public Broadcast-
ing Service, and also president
and general manager of
WMFE in Orlando, said he
was confident that the critical
timing of the debates would
be a magnet to draw candi-
dates to participate and view-
ers to watch and listen.
"These candidates know all
too well how important Flori-
da is in selecting the next oc-
cupant of the White House,"

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


Dear Classified Guys,
I'll admit it, I'm a football fanatic. If I
have a free moment, I'll turn on the
TV to find any game I can watch. I've
even been known to call in sick to
work so I can watch a few games at
home. Granted it's not the most
responsible thing to do, but I am a
sports junkie. Recently, my wife
came up with what I thought was a
brilliant idea. She suggested that
with my enthusiasm I should be a
professional mascot. Now that's a
career I can get into I was a mascot
for a season in college a few years
ago. I'd love to jump around the field
with the pros, but I doubt that's a
solid career choice. I'd figure you
have to know someone to get those
jobs. But since my wife is on my
side, do you think it's possible to
become a professional mascot or
is it just a daydream? It's
probably not a job I'm likely '
to find in the classified.
Cash: With your wife's support
almost anything is possible. Just
make sure she wasn't joking about the
idea before you make it your new career!
Carry: Despite their appearance on
the field, mascots are not all about fun
and games. You will have to put in


some hard work to land your dream job.
Cash: Fortunately, there are all sorts
of opportunities to be a mascot. Almost
every team, from the NFL and NBA to
major and minor baseball leagues,
needs mascots. You may have to start
out in a lesser-known league to gain
experience for the big time.
Carry: While it does help knowing
someone to find a job, leagues like the
NFL do advertise for job openings,
including mascots, when a position is
unfilled.
Cash: It's estimated that only about
half of all mascots are full-time posi-
tions with salaries around $25,000 to
$35,000 per year. But if you're experi-


enced enough to work for a popular
franchise, then the salary could be more.
Carry: If you are serious about being
a mascot, then you should create a
resume that presents you as hard work-
ing, enthusiastic and experienced. It
would also be helpful to have some
experience in dance, stage performance
and improvisational comedy.
Cash: Believe it or not, there are
mascot schools that can help train you
to energize the crowd and create the
enthusiasm that team owners and fans
have come to expect.
Carry: Besides, the training will be
useful to continually rally your wife's
support if you quit your day job!


Go Team
The popularity of mascots began in
1974 when a San Diego State
University student in a chicken suit was
making public appearances to promote
a radio station. He then contacted the
San Diego Padre's and offered to enter-
tain in the stands during games. After a
few years he became a fan favorite.
The Philadelphia Phillies soon picked
up the same idea and the concept of
using mascots began spreading to other
teams. Today, 95% of all sports teams
have a mascot.
Black and White
Like mascots, professional umpires
have to love their jobs. And it's no easy
task to get them. First they must com-
plete a 5-week training program of
which only top graduates go to an evalu-
ation course run by the Professional
Baseball Umpire Corp. (PBUC). If
hired, they are allowed to officiate only
the lowest levels of minor league games.
Then, the umpire has just three years to
impress the major leagues with his calls,
otherwise "You're Out!" For the few that
make it to the top, salaries can range
from $90,000 to $350,000 per year.

Flavored Career
Ever since our family, action to
Universal Studios, my husband ha~s
been obsessed with finding a small
actingjob. The kids and Ihate been
ridiculing him for weeks about this.
since he can't een stand to be in
front of a home videoo camera.
Nonetheless, one night during din-
ner he \as sifting through the ne.t s-
paper and came across a classified ad
ad% ertising. "Brief acting job for a
man in his 50's." Reading it aloud.
he % a- con'. minced he could get the
job
."But \ou don't hp\e ian acting

"\\hat do \ou mean," he replied
taking a bite of food "I'Te pretended

State parks
contribute
big to local
economies
Submitted
The Florida Department of
Environmental 'Protection. (DEP)
announced recently that Florida's
state parks contributed more than
$936 million to local communities
during the 2006-07 fiscal year. During
that time, state parks generated more
than 18,700 jobs and welcomed a
record-breaking 19.5 million visitors.
"Nature-based recreational activities at
Florida's state parks are a significant.
part of Florida's growing ecotourism
industry," said DEP Deputy Secretary
Bob Ballard. "Our state parks offer
environmental recreation and
education for visitors of all ages, and
this record-breaking success was a
great boost to the state's economy."
At the top of this year's list is St.
Andrews State Park in Panama City
Beach, which contributed more than
$47 million to the state. Closely
following is Honeymoon Island State
Park in Dunedin, with more than $42
million in direct economic impact; John
Pennekamp State Park in Key Largo,
contributing $38.3 million; Lovers Key
State Park in Fort Myers Beach,
supplying $37.8 million for South
Florida economies; and Bill Baggs
,Cape Florida State Park in Key
Biscayne, providing $36.6 million for
Southeast Florida.
"Florida's state parks are a popular
draw for both out-of-state and local
visitors," said DEP Florida Park
Service Director Mike Bullock. "The
beaches, trails, and recreational and
educational opportunities at state
parks are enjoyed at record-breaking
levels across the state."
Direct economic impact is calculated
as the amount of new dollars spent in
the local economy by non-local .park
visitors and park operations. The
Florida Park Service uses the Money
Generation Model designed for and
used by the National Park Service to
assess economic impact in the local
area around a park.
The first two-time Gold Medal winner
Honoring the nation's best state park
system, the Florida Park Service is
one of the largest in the country with
161 parks spanning 700,000 acres
and 100 miles of sandy white beach.
From swimming and diving in Florida's
rivers and springs to birding and
pushing or hiking and riding on natural
scenic trails, Florida's state parks offer
year-round "outdoor activities ,for all
ages. Battle reenactments and Native
American festivals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art shows,
museums and lighthouses offer a
window into Florida's cultural heritage..
