Coupons, a hot commodity

budget and find the best deals
at the same time, are also be-
coming a big hit with identity

Scammers, through the years,
continue to take advantage of


the internet and email to dupe
unsuspecting users into believ-

honest deal for their money.
According to the Federal

generates a large amount of rev-
enue for thieves. hi addition,,,
charity groups, future business

have fallen prey to the coupon
scheme. Scammers use a variety
of methods on the internet and

Heart Matters


Christmas brings a sea-
son of wonder-beautiful
decorations, surprises,
great gifts, wonderful
meals and happy
faces....yeah right!! All of
us living in the real world
know better! Even in the
happiest homes, life is not
perfect like those holiday
commercials; meals get
burned, family celebrations
get tense, money runs
short, gifts are the wrong
size, color, etc, and those
happy faces? Well, they
can burst into tears at any
given moment. Still, even
as we get real about it all,
we must admit there is a
measure of wonder over
this whole season and we
want in on it!
In Luke 1:34-38, the Bible
records an exchange be-
tween the angel Gabriel
and a young girl named
Mary. He had just given
her the news that she
would be the mother of Je-
sus. Her reply? "How can
this be," Mary asked the an-
gel,'."since I am a virgin?"
The angel answered, "The
Holy Spirit will come upon
you and the power of the
Most High will overshad-
ow you. So the holy one to
be born will be called the
Son of God For nothing is
impossible with God.'"'.
How can this be? Mary's
question just might be the
one that can restore the
wonder back to our Christ-
mas celebration. God was
about to perform the mira-
cle of all miracles in her life,
I'm sure in that instant she
had not even the time to
think of all that this news
would mean for her life,
but she knew that this was
BIG! Aren't we all looking
for the same thing, for God
to do a big thing in our life?
The last time we exclaimed,


"How can this be?" around
the holidays was probably
last January when we
opened our Visa bill or
maybe when we stepped
on the bathroom
scales...looking for that
wonder in the season can
tempt us to make some bad
choices we will pay for (lit-
erally) long after the holi-
days are over. Let's decide
to give a gift to ourselves
by protecting our check-
book and giving gifts that
we can afford, and our
health by enjoying those
holiday goodies, but in
moderation. Then we can
ask, "How can it be?" from
a different perspective:
How can it be that I am
so blessed to have people
who love and care for me
when I -can be so hard to
love sometimes?
How can it be that God
provides for my needs (and
so many of my wants)
when I can be so selfish?
How .can it be that I live
in a country that enjoys,
freedom when so many
others live in fear, with no
security and no protection?
How can it be that God
would send His son Jesus
to die for my sins before I
ever wanted to live for
Him?
Still looking for God to
do a big thing in your life?
Looks like He's already
working on it! By the way,
Gabriel gave Mary the an-
swer to "How can it be?"
"For nothing is impossible
with God."
If you have never started
living for Him, the offer is
still yours, there is no other
way to prepare your heart
for the real celebration of
Christmas. Simply admit
the fact that you are a sin-
ner (have done wrong
things), and that the cost


Angle Land


for your sin is death. Be-
cause God is Holy, He can-
not be in the presence of sin,
so as sinners we cannot be
with Him. God's Son, Jesus
Christ was born on this
earth, lived a sinless life and
died to pay that sin debt for
me and for you. If you be-,
lieve with your heart and
confess with your mouth
that Jesus is the Son of God,
that He died on the cross for
our sins, and God raised
Him back from the dead,
the Bible says that we will
be saved, have a home in
heaven and live with God
forever. (See Romans 10:9)
See there, your heart does
matter!

Heart healthy



substitutions



for the holidays


A ,

Submitted by: Priscilla Cash-
man, FNP Program Assistant,
UF/IFAS-Lafayette County
Extension

The arrival of the holiday
season doesn't have to bring
the heart-healthy eating
habits you have been faith-
fully following throughout
the year to an end. By mak-
ing a few simple substitu-
tions, you can reduce the fat
and calories in many of your
favorite holiday foods.
Keep these simple holiday
substitutions in mind when
you are planning all of your
holiday meals.
Tantalizing turkey. When
you are basting your holiday
turkey, use fat-free broth or
fruit juice rather than butter.
It will add flavor without a
lot of extra fat or calories.
White meat turkey makes a
great choice for holiday din-
ners instead of meats such as
duck or roast beef, which are
higher in fat. When you are
eating, try adding a spoonful
of cranberry sauce or broth
to your turkey instead of
gravy.
Superb stuffing. You can
cut the fat in your stuffing
recipe by using fat free
turkey or chicken broth' to'
moisten it. To add more fiber
to your stuffing, try adding
oats to your recipe and use
whole wheat bread rather
than white bread. You could
also add fruits and vegeta-
bles such as chopped apples,
cranberries, diced carrots
and celery to give your stuff-
ing extra vitamins and nutri-
ents.
Perfect potatoes. Instead
of adding butter and heavy
cream to your mashed pota-
toes, try mixing in skim milk
or chicken broth and plain
non-fat yogurt. You can also
enhance the flavor of your
potatoes by adding a sprin-
kling of your favorite fresh
herbs. To sweeten yams, try
topping them with fruit pre-


serves and cinnamon rather
than marshmallows and
butter.
Vibrant vegetables. There
is no needl to smother your
fruits and vegetables in but-
ter or a heavy cream sauce.
To. preserve your vegeta-
bles, nutrients and vibrant
colors, try steaming them in
fat free broth and sprinkle
some fresh herbs or butter-
flavored seasoning on top
instead.
Delectable desserts. No
holiday feast is complete
without a slice of cake or
pie. When you are planning
your dessert menu, consider'
serving an angel food cake
topped with fresh fruit a
pumpkin or apple pie. Use
fat-free frozen yogurt as top-
ping for your pie instead of
whipped cream or ice
cream.

The Christmas Pageant


submitted
My husband and I had
been happily married (most
of the time) for five years but
hadn't been blessed with a
baby.
I decided to do some seri-
ous praying and promised
God that if he would give us
a child, I would be a perfect
mother, love it with all my
heart and raise it with His
word as my guide. God an-
swered my prayers and
blessed us with a son.
The next year God blessed
us with another son. The fol-
lowing year, He blessed us
with yet another son.
The year after that we
were blessed with a daugh-
ter. My husband thought
we'd been blessed right into
poverty.
We now had four chil-
dren, and the oldest was
only four years old. I learned
never to ask God for any-
thing unless I meant it. As a
minister once told me, "If
you pray for rain, make sure
you carry an umbrella."
I began reading a few
verses of the Bible to the chil-
dren each day as they lay in
their cribs. I was off to a
good start. God had entrust-
ed me with four children
and I didn't want to disap-
point Him. I tried to be pa-
tient the day the children
smashed two dozen eggs on
the kitchen floor searching
for baby chicks. I tried to be
understanding... when they
started a hotel for homeless
frogs in the spare bedroom,
although it took me nearly
two hours to catch all twen-
ty-three frogs.
When my daughter
poured ketchup all over her-
self and rolled up in a blan-
ket to see how it felt to be a
hot dog, I tried to see the hu-
mor rather than the mess. In
spite of changing over twen-
ty-five thousand diapers,
never eating a hot meal and
never sleeping for more than
thirty minutes at a time, I
still thank God daily for my
children.
While I couldn't keep my
promise to be a perfect
mother I didn't even come
close... I did keep my

promise to raise them in the
Word of God. I knew I was
missing the mark just a little
when I told my daughter we
were going to church to
worship God, and she want-
ed to bring a bar of soap
along to "wash up" Jesus,
too.
Something was lost in the
translation when I explained
that God gave us everlasting
life, and my son thought it
was generous of God to give
us his "last wife."
My proudest moment
came during the children's
Christmas pageant. My
daughter was playing Mary,
two of my sons were shep-
herds and my youngest son
was a wise man.
This was their moment to
shine. My five-year-old
shepherd had practiced his
line, "We found the babe
wrapped in swaddling
clothes." But he was nervous
and said, "The baby was
wrapped in wrinkled
clothes."
My four-year-old "Mary"
said, "That's not 'wrinkled
clothes,' silly. That's dirty,
rotten clothes."
A wrestling match broke
out between Mary and the
shepherd and was stopped
by an angel, who bent her
halo and lost her left wing. I
slouched a little lower in my
seat when Mary dropped
the doll representing Baby
Jesus, and it bounced down
the aisle crying, "Mama-
mama." Mary grabbed the
doll, wrapped it back up
and held it tightly as the
wise men arrived.
My other son stepped for-
ward wearing a bathrobe
and a paper crown, knelt at
the manger and announced,
"We are the three wise men,
and we are bringing gifts of
gold, common sense and


fur."
The congregation dis-
solved into laughter, and the
pageant got a standing ova-
tion. "I've never enjoyed a
Christmas program as much
as this one," laughed the
pastor, wiping tears from his
eyes.
"For the rest of my life, I'll
never hear the Christmas
story without thinking of
gold, common sense and
fur."
"My children are my pride
and my joy and my greatest
blessing," I said as I dug
through my purse for an as-
pirin.
Jesus had no servants,
yet they called Him Mas-


Had no degree,
yet they called Him
Teacher.
Had no medicines,
yet they called Him Heal-
er.
Had no army,
yet kings feared Him.
He won no military bat-
tles,
yet He conquered the
world.
He committed no crime,
yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb,
yet He lives today.

Feel honored to serve such
a Leader who loves us.

Christmas bake sale

submitted byi Lafayiette County Fire Department
The Lafayette Count)' Fire Department will be hold-
ing a Christmas Bake sale on Saturday, December 15, at
Thriftway in Mayo, beginning at 9 a.m.
The proceeds from this bake sale will be used to buy
toys for needy children for Christmas. There will be

The Lafayette County Fire Department would like to
thank everyone for their continued support and dona-
tions and wish each and everyone a happy and healthy
holiday season. If you have a particular kind of cake or
cookie you would like please call Leta Hawkins at 294-

Your kind and generous donations last Christmas
helped the Lafayette County Fire Department to pur-
chase six new bicycles and helmets as well as other
safety equipment for six wonderful children in-
Lafayette County that were delivered on the fire truck
on Christmas morning in the pouring rain.
The smiles and tears on the faces of those six chil-
dren, as well as their parents made this a very special
Christmas for the Lafayette County Fire Department.
This could not have been done without the help of you,
the citizens of Lafayette County, and again we thank
you from the bottom of our hearts.
Merry Christmas,
Chief William Robinson and extended family members

ES First Grade Scientists; had

L a new and exciting experi-
ence. This year our first
graders were able to plant a
Fall garden with donations
and help from several people and organi-
zations. Ms. Karen Woulf, who works
for our Health Department, brought our.
first graders plants from Bonnie Plants
and Mayo Fertilizer provided the seeds
for our garden.
Farm Bureau provided our students
with the funding that made it possible to
enlarge our harvest area. With the help

from Ms. Woulf, Mrs. Pippi Cashman
and Mr. Chris Vann, our first grade sci-
entists were able to see how a garden is
planted. First, the LHS FFA members
helped plow and prepare our garden for
our plants and seeds.
Then our wonderful helpers from the
Extension Office, along with our first
grade teachers, planted rows of radishes,
cabbage, broccoli and a variety of herbs.
The first grade scientists are excited and
now ready to watch our Fall garden
grow!
They will also enjoy eating these veg-
etables when they are ready to "harvest".

2007 Hallelujah Festival held


The 7th annual Hallelujah Festival was held at Airline
Baptist Church on Wednesday October 31. Nearly 2500
people attended the festival and enjoyed the festivities.
After signing in at the welcome tables, people proceeded
down the row of 32 trunk-r-treats where children re-
ceived a wide assortment of candy, snow-cones, cotton
candy, and a gospel tract.
Six blow-up games were enjoyed by all ages and there
was a variety of skill games included for children. Some
of these included apple-bobbing, go fish, throw the foot-
ball, and ring the stake. The most popular game of the
evening was the one that was rewarded with a goldfish
as the prize.
Children also enjoyed sand art and face painting.
Adults were able to participate in the cake walk and pine
straw maze. One of the most popular events for every-
one is the hayride which meanders through the woods
behind the church.


Live gospel music was provided by the Alton Church
of God and Airline Baptist Church. Brother Matt Swain
of Brewer Lake Baptist Church shared the gospel mes-
sage with the crowd. Everyone enjoyed a hotdog dinner
complete with chips and a snack cake. The crowd ate
about 1,500 hot dogs during the course of the evening.
A special thanks is given to the churches who support-
ed and helped with this evening: Alton Church of God,
Assembly of God, Bethel Creek Baptist Church, Bethel
Mt. Sinai Holiness, Brewer Lake Baptist Church, Mayo
Baptist Church, Mayo Methodist Church, Midway Bap-
tist Church, New Beginnings Fellowship, Riverside Bap-
tist Church, Faith Baptist Church of Perry and Salem
Baptist Church.
Another special thanks to the Lafayette County Sher-
iff's Department for providing safe parking for the event.

A.T.M.
(ABSTINENCE TILL MARRIAGE)
By Carolyn C. Demps
You want to be wise and prepared when you talk to your teen. Here are
four tips that can help. They are easy to remember because they spell
WISE.
W is for welcome: Your teen needs to know that you care and are eager
to talk. He or she needs to feel secure talking to you. No one enjoys
dinner, activities or conversations that are tense. So how do you create a
supportive environment so you can talk? (1) Show respect for each other.
(2) Your teen needs to be able to trust you. (3) You have to be available.
(4) Take time to discuss news and t-v shows with sexual themes.
I is for interest. Show your interest by asking questions in a comfortable
order and style. Ask questions about their opinions, friends, school, or
movies, but let your teen tell his or her story. If you ask your teen, "Do
you think there is a lot of pressure to have sex at school?" they are more
likely to open up and talk to you than if you warn, "You'd better not be
having sex!"
S is for support. Ask what your teen's goals are. Both for the long
range and for the short term, and share your support. If your teen son or
daughter has hope for the future, they are more likely to make better
choices.
E is for encourage, educate and empower: Educate and encourage your
teen to make healthy decisions. When topics come up about sex, do not
think that you need to know all the answers. Be honest when you don't
know, and offer to help find the facts. If you made poor sexual decisions
when you were young, that shouldn't keep you from guiding your teen to
healthier decisions.

one in tournament play and
one in a regular season
game. In tournament ac-
tion, Lafayette posted a 60-

Lady Hornets hit six three-
pointers in the win. Sun-
shine Reid, who buried
three treys, led Lafayette
with 23 points. Natalie
Land netted 15 and hit one
three-point basket. Carte-
sha Macklin finished with
12 points and had two tri-


factors.
Reid second three-p
basket came in the ti
quarter that. gave Lafay
a 47-45 lead. Land, v
was held to three f
goals, hit two free thr(

ng care of the basket-

his instruction to his team
at the half was taking care

they would just cut back
on their turnovers we
could get back in the
game," he said. "I thought
we played a little smarter
in the third quarter."
Perry's rebound basket
with 2:33 to play in the
third tied the game at 26-
26. A Brook Morris free
throw gave the Hornets
their first lead of the game,

of the fourth quarter to ex-
tend the Hornet lead to 36-
31. With 2:17 to play in the

mistakes by the Hornets.
Perry's rebound basket put
his team back in front 44-

baskets by getting behind
the Hornet defense and cut
the lead to a single point,
46-45. Lafayette would

player from football. Everybody hustled.
Everybody played as a team. That has
what we have been preaching since day
one. That is what we have to have to win."
Coach Fletcher used his entire team well
in securing the win. Fletcher rotated five
men in every three minutes of the game.
He said he did not know if that is some-
thing fans could see out of the Hornets


the rest of the season. "For right now we
are going to go with the rotation," he said.
The Hornets did not see they could han-
dle prosperity as they saw a 13 point half
time lead nearly disappear in the third pe-
riod. Leading 33-20 at the half, the Bull-
dogs scored the first eight points of the
second half to trail 33-28.
A 7-4 run gave Lafayette a 42-32 lead
with less than three minutes to play in the
third period. Bell rode the inside game of
Thomas to cut into the Hornet lead and
trailed 42-41 before Antwan Brown's bas-
ket just ahead of the buzzer. The basket
netted Lafayette a 44-41 lead going into
the fourth period.
Lafayette contained the Bulldogs in the
fourth quarter holding them a single field
goal in the final stanza. Edwards complet-
ed an old-fashion three point play and
Sellers duplicated the feat to open up a
50-41 lead for Lafayette with just over six
minutes to play. J.D. Gray hit a short

a 46-42 lead after three

played even in the fourth
.quarter with the four point
win going to the Lady Hor-
nets.
VERSUS P.K. YOUNG
In overtime, Lafayette
fell 74-73 to P.K. Yonge in
what was a proverbial barn
burner. The Lady Hornets
fell behind early, strug-
gling offensively. In spite
of shooting poorly,

Lafayette held a seven point
lead in the opening period
and led 20-16 at the first
stop. Cold shooting from
the floor continued in the
second period as Yonge
went on a 18-8 run that net-
ted them a 34-28 half time
lead.
Lafayette's shooting woes
continued late into the third
period when the Lady Hor-
nets found their range. A
24-14 spurt tied the game at
67-67 forcing the game into
an extra period. The hard
part for the Lady Hornets to
swallow was they held a 67-
63 lead with just 37 seconds
on the scoreboard. Two
three-point plays by Land
and Macklin gave Lafayette
the four point advantage.
Two turnovers and missed
free throws allowed Yonge
to tie the game sending it to
overtime. Lafayette had their
chances in the extra period,
missing three uncontested
lay up's. Again, Lafayette
had five offensive rebounds
and still could not score in
the overtime. With eight sec-
onds left in the overtime,
Yonge missed from the free
throw line with Lafayette
coming up with the ball.
However, the Lady Hornets
could not move the ball up
court for the final shot before
time expired.
Land finished with a dou-
ble-double. She had 24
points and 20 rebounds.
Reid also recorded a dou-
ble-double with 18 points
and 12 rebounds. Mackline
finished with 12 point.
Lafayette drained eight
three-point baskets in the
loss. Reid had four, Land
one, Cherry two and Kelsey
Land one.

Lady Bulldogs.
The game was never in
doubt after the first minute
as the Lady Hornets rolled
to a very quick 11-1 lead.
They led 23-3 at the first
stop and took a 48-7 lead to
the locker area at the half.
One bright spot for the
Lady Bulldogs came in the
final two minutes of the
game, with the clock run-
ning, when Bell closed out
the game with a 9-0 run. Er-


gle scored eight of her 10
points in that stretch of the
game. She drilled a three-
point basket, hit two free
throws and completed an
old-fashioned three-point
play.
For Lafayette, Carthesa
Macklin finished with nine
points while Lillie Prine fin-
ished with seven. Takisha
Cherry and Kelsy Land
tossed in four points each.
Eileen Givens, TaQuelia
Macklin and Ana Monroy
had two points apiece.


CARTESHA MACKLIN (25) picked up an easy basket at Bell last

what I was hoping would happen," he
said. "Our seniors really showed leader-

win. They went after and did what they

FAMILY FEATURES


t's the most wonderful time of the year decor.ating,
baking, shopping, addressing holiday cards, and send-
ing festive packages to friends and fanui That is. until
the time comes to ship your holiday packages .and you
wind up in a line a mile long just to real ze oun' e
missed the shipping deadline for holiday deliern. It's
enough to test anyone's holiday cheer.
. What most people don't realize is that while the-re
are 32 shopping days between Thanksgiving and
Christmas this year, there are only 21 shipping
days to get gifts to friends and family who I %e
across the country or around the world.
Here are some key holiday shipping dates
to keep in mind for domestic packages from
the experts at The UPS Store. Post these on
your fridge or bulletin board so they're
handy at all times:
* Wednesday, December 19: UPS
3-Day Select for delivery on
December 24
m Thursday, December 20: UPS 2nd
Day Air for delivery on December 24
* Friday, December 21: UPS Next Day
Air* for delivery on December 24
* Saturday, December 22: UPS Next
Day Air for delivery on December 24
If you plan to have your packages
ready earlier in December, check with
your local packing and shipping store for
ground rates and delivery schedules. For
example, most UPS Ground packages
take five business days or less to arrive,
unless they are coast-to-coast deliveries,
which could take a day or two longer.
Also, keep in mind that packages sent to
military personnel or international destinations
need to be shipped early in the season to guar-
antee delivery by the holidays. As you're m akini
your shipping list and checking it twice, put these
packages at the very top, and don't forget to cjll .\our
local The UPS Store to check on rates and shipping
deadlines.
Whether you're shipping internationally or donesticall.,
here are a few tips for keeping your wait time in line to a
minimum. First, try to avoid the busiest shipping \' eek of
the year predicted to be Dec. 17 to 22. Also. tryo mail
packages on a day other than Monday, which is the most
hectic mailing day of the week.
With some advance planning and organization.. ou can
make the busiest time of the year a little less snessful -
and a lot merrier.

ple haircut. "Mayo Bar-
ber Shop will offer full
service barbering ser-
vices including wet cuts,
dry cuts, face shaving,
head shaving, beard
trimming, and men's
styling," Broughton said.
Hours of operation are 9
a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday
through Friday, and 8:30
a.m. to 1 p.m. on Satur-
day.
The Broughtons decid-
ed to open a barbershop
in Mayo because, accord-
ing to Joey, they saw a
need for a place where
men of the community
could come in, relax, and
get a haircut, without
having to go elsewhere.
"Over the years, I've re-
peatedly heard the men's
biggest complaint about
hair cutting being that


they didn't like having to
make appointments and
they didn't necessarily
care for the atmosphere
of a women's salon,"
Broughton said.
As a result of their
hard work and dedica-
tion to fulfilling their
dreams, the Broughtons,
with the assistance of
several members of the
community-Allen and
Sheilah Broughton,
Kathy Keen, and Jim and
Cheryl Hollis- there is
now a place where men
can visit, whether to get
a hair cut or socialize
with other men and en-
joy free coffee.
Joey is a life-long resi-
dent of Lafayette County
and is also the current
owner of Quality Man-
agement Systems, Inc., a
mechanical inspection
company. Jessica gradu-


ated from Southern Bar-
ber College in Augusta,
GA in 2002. She lived
and grew up in Hephz-
ibah, GA. They were
married two years ago
and have two children,
Jayme, 14, and Hunter,
10. Jayme attends
Lafayette High School.
Joey and Jessica said
they love Lafayette
County and the close-
knit, family atmosphere
that it provides, and plan
to live, work, and raise
their family here for a
long time. "Jessica and I
both love the small town
life. We love the fact that
everyone knows every-
one and where people
still call you by your
name. We hope the shop
will grow and become a
staple of the small town,
Lafayette County cul-
ture," Joey said.

Is it true that "an apple a
day keeps the doctor
away"? The Old Farmer's
Almanac for Kids, Volume
2, provides interesting ap-
ple facts and advice (Hint:
If eating one apple keeps
the doctor away, what will
happen if you eat two?).
FOOD FOR
THOUGHT
The average person
eats 50 to 60 apples a year.
(That's about 19 pounds!)
Thirsty? Eat an apple.
More than 50 percent of


the total weight of a fresh
apple is water.
It takes about five years
for an apple tree with
grafted branches to pro-
duce fruit.
An apple pie contains
about two pounds of ap-
ples.
If "an apple a day
keeps the doctor away,"
are two better for you?
Some scientists believe that
eating two apples or drink-
ing two glasses of apple
juice a day helps to im-
prove your memory and
keep your brain sharp. So,


the next time you are
studying for a big test,
munch on an apple-or two.
Feeling claustrophobic,
or closed in? Smell some
green apples. In one exper-
iment, participants claimed
that the smell of green ap-
ples made an enclosed
space seem larger. (The
smell of barbecue smoke
made the space seem
smaller).
One bad apple really
can spoil a whole bushel! If
an apple is bruised or dis-
eased, it gives off a gas
called ethylene, which


causes fruits and vegeta-
bles to ripen too quickly
and thus be more likely to
rot. Throw bad apples into
the compost pile.

projects on astronomy,
pets, health, nature, sports,
and weather, as well as a
companion activity guide,

1 F1r Mayo Girl Scouts


_ -, rClub turns two


Ira Mikell, Free Press Reporter
Although the Mayo Girl
Scouts Club is only two
years old, Heather Jackson
and Sheila Perry are very
excited about the club and
how their non-profit orga-
nization has grown and,
blossomed during its infan-
cy. They informed the
Mayo Rotary Club about
their gift to the community
on Wednesday, Dec. 5.,
Jackson is the wife of
Judge Darren Jackson. Two
of their daughters are
members of the club. Perry
is the wife of Herbert Perry,
whose only daughter is
also an active member of
the club. Both Jackson and
Perry were Girl Scouts
when they were in school.
"She and I were Brownies
when we were younger. So,
we decided to get involved
now because we have
daughters," Jackson said.
The Mayo charter is one
of many Girl Scouts clubs
nationwide that are dedi-
cated to helping young
girls evolve into positive
role models as well as hard-
working citizens wherever
they choose to live, work,
and raise a family. The Girl,
Scouts," according to Jack-
son, was founded by Juliet
Lowe in 1912. Lowe, a resi-
dent of Savannah, Ga,
wanted to help the girls in


her community become
model citizens, while at the
same time, learning cook-
ing and other home-mak-
ing skills. "When she start-
ed, her intent was to pro-
mote self reflection in these
girls, reliance, and re-
sourcefulness for them
selves," Jackson said.
When it began, Lowe
cared for 18 girls, according
to Jackson. Today, that
number has grown to ap-
proximately 3.7 million,
with more girls joining
each year.
The Mayo Girls Scouts
currently has 13 members,
a diverse group of girls
from different back-
grounds. Jackson and Perry
teach the girls how to de-
velop to their fullest poten-
tial; how to relate to others
through understanding,
skills, and respect; how to
set and reach goals, feel
good about their accom-
plishments, assist others in
reaching their goals, and
,how to properly deal with
failure.
At this time, Jackson and
Perry are the only ones
keeping the Mayo Girl
Scouts running. If you
would like to learn how
you can volunteer your
time in this community
project, visit

McCray shares information about homeless


program at
Mary Anne McCray re-
cently visited the Mayo
Woman's Club to share infor-
mation about the homeless
program in Lafayette County
and to receive donations
from the club's "Harvest of
Help."
During her program, Mc-
Cray talked about the defini-
tion of homeless, and most
were surprised to know that
our county even has anyone
who is actually considered
homeless. Once she present-
ed the legal definition of
homeless which includes
people who live without
electricity, water, or plumb-
ing, the group understood
that there is a large, needy
population right here. Also
in this needy group are mul-
tiple families who exist in
shared housing because of
low income.
McCray went on to say
that the 2001 McKinney-Ven-
to Act provides a means for
funding to help children
with school supplies and oth-
er educational matters. There
are three federal entitlements
which contribute to serving
this group. However, needs
are often immediate and
money is often slow coming
due to the time involved
with systemic procedures.
She often calls on various
groups to help when such a
situation arises, and some-
times contributions are made
to her program directly
through the school board.
The homeless program is
run through the local school
system and serves 174 chil-
dren, from three ethnic
groups, or approximately
10% of the population. The
spirit of this program is to
help level the academic play-

children to sing Christmas
carols to the audience. Ap-
proximately 10 children of
various ages with glowing
smiles on their faces, quick-
ly ran on stage to partici-
pate. After the children fin-
ished singing a few carols,
the audience gave a thun-.
derous applause. The other
carolers were Paul Ander-.
son and his family, David.
Fountain, Deana Burke, and
Leta Hawkins.
The children also enjoyed

were photographed with
Santa, which was a greater
number than last year. "It

Drug-Resistant Superbugs on the Rise


It seems that for years the medical community has been
warning the public about the potential for a superbugg" to form
- a bacteria that is resistant to the majority of antibiotics
currently on the market. Still, many parents and even
doctors understand the risk but fill antibiotics prescriptions
anyway.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), virtually all significant bacterial infections in the world
are becoming resistant to the antibiotic treatment of choice.
There are even bacteria that resist single, double, or multiple
antibiotics, making treatment and the threat of a superbug even
more real.
Ear Infection Woes
Recently, researchers have discovered a strain of bacteria
resistant to all approved drugs used to fight ear infections in
children, according to an article published in the Journal of the
American Medical Association (JAMA). Two pediatricians
discovered the. drug-resistant ear infection strain after
performing tympanocentesis (ear tap) on children whose ear
infections did not clear up with the general course of
antibiotics. The ear tap process involves puncturing the ear
drum and draining fluid. Subsequent testing of the fluid can
determine the bacterial strain causing the infection. The
children who were not benefitting from antibiotics were found
to have a superbug named 19A. The bacterial strain could only
be killed by the antibiotic levoflox'acin, a medication not
approved for use in children. Desperation mandated the doctors
treat the children with the powerful antibiotic rather than have
them face further illness or permanent hearing loss.
Resistant Staph
Drug-resistant staph infections have been in the news as of
late, again drawing attention to superbugs. Staph infections,
which range from urinary tract infections to bacterial
pneumonia are caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus
(S. aureus). In the 1940s, staph became resistant to penicillin.
Today S. aureus is resistant to all but some of the most lethal


antibiotics. There are even reports that the most powerful
treatment is no longer effective.
Stopping Superbugs
For years experts have been warning that doctors need to '
determine if bacteria is at play with regard to illness before
prescribing antibiotics. It's now recommended that they go even
further to determine the strain so that the proper antibiotic can be
used. Antibiotics should not be prescribed for illnesses such as
colds or the flu for "comfort sake," because these are viruses and
are unaffected by antibiotics.
Task force agencies chaired by the CDC and the FDA continue
to educate and find ways -to combat drug-resistant bacteria. The
success of the plan known as the Public Health Action Plan to
Combat Antimicrobial Resistance depends on the cooperation
of many entities, such as state and local health agencies,
universities, professional societies, pharmaceutical companies,
healthcare professionals, agricultural producers, and the public.
How Resistance Happens
Bacteria reside all around us. Many are helpful and not at all a
danger. Some are capable of causing serious infections.
To treat bacteria-caused infections, antibiotics must halt or kill
the growth of bacteria. Some bacteria have developed resistance
to antibiotics naturally over time. Others have become resistant to
drugs other ways. Many develop resistance to certain drugs
spontaneously through mutation. Mutations are changes that
occur in the genetic material, or DNA, of the bacteria. These
changes allow the bacteria to fight or inactivate the antibiotic.
Bacteria can also become resistant through exchanging genes
with other bacteria. Rapid growth of bacteria and a sort of
"mating" creates combinations of bacteria that are not affected by
drugs.
If an antibiotic is prescribed and absolutely necessary, a person
should not skip doses or stop taking it as soon as they feel better;
they should complete the full course of the medication. -
Otherwise, thq drug may not kill all the infectious bacteria,
allowing the remaining bacteria to possibly become resistant.

Dear Classified Guys,
Christmas is only a few weeks away,
and despite the usual holiday stress
of shopping and writing holiday
cards, I have an additional problem.
For weeks my son has been begging
me for a pet. I could handle it If he
wanted a puppy or a kitten, but he
wants a snake. I told him no way, but
he's been working on me. He keeps
his room neat, gets A's on his math
tests and even takes out the garbage
without me asking! I hate the Idea of
giving him a snake, but his new atti-
tude and hard work is tempting me to
reconsider. I'm asking you guys if I
should give in because I saw an ad in
the classified offering free pet
snakes. I have to make a decision
soon, but I'm worried what will hap-
pen if my son looses interest
in this thing. I certainly 4
don't want to end up caring
for it. Any ideas? Please
hurry before my son makes me
breakfast in bed and I give in. ,

Cash: If you cave-in after getting
breakfast in bed, just make sure he does
the dishes too.
Carry: Getting a child to do chores
around the house is never easy, but
your son seems to have found his


Duane "Cash" Holze \
& Todd "Carry" Holze`


motivation.
Cash: And he's carried it over to his
schoolwork, studying to get good
grades. With the holidays right around
the comer, there's no doubt he's pouring
on the good behavior.
Carry:, Your thinking is correct in
that his accomplishments should be
recognized, but that doesn't mean you
have to give in to getting him a pet
snake. Consider another reward for his
good deeds, like the latest version of
his favorite video game or a trip to the
amusement park.
Cash: As with any pet, you should
think about it seriously before adding
one to your family. People often get in
the mood around holidays and give a


pet as a gift. However, caring for that
pet continues long after the holiday
spirit subsides.
Carry: Now if your son is truly inter-
ested in snakes, don't let your.fear pre-
vent you from getting one. It's
important to offer encouragement
regardless of your concerns. Although
snakes are drastically different from a
dog or cat, they can be a great experi-
ence for you and your son. However,
postponing it a few months until after
the holidays may be a good idea to see
if your son's interest continues.
Cash: In the meantime, enjoy his
newfound behavior. You never know,
you may wake up to the smell of french
toast.


Snake Doctor
Although poisonous snakes are often
feared, they are proving to be very
valuable creatures. Over a dozen diag-
nostic tests and drugs are derived from
snake venom. Preliminary research has
also found that a natural compound
from some snake venom may prevent
the growth of cancer tumors. Unlike
traditional chemotherapy, these com-
pounds can distinguish between healthy
cells and the bad cancer cells. This has
the potential to ease many of the debili-
tating side effects that go along with
cancer treatment.
Being Unique
Snakes can make great pets, but look
at the different species before getting
one. For first time owners, experts rec-
ommend getting a corn snake, king
snake or ball python. These snakes are
generally gentle with simpler feeding
needs than other species. However, a
proper escape-proof enclosure is essen-
tial for any snake since these creatures
are very persistent at trying to escape.
Just remember that like any pet, snakes,
require commitment. With a life span of
up to 20 years or more, you can expect a
pet snake to be around for quite a while.
Got a question or funny store? Call (888) 242-
3644 or write: Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Major Mixup
I thought growing up ith rto sis-
ters %,as a challenge. but it's nothing
compared to being a Mom of two
boys. .. .
My first-born Tommy got a pel
snake two years ago when he turned
ten. Since I'm not a fan of snakes, he
has to keep the 4-foot p.ihon in his
room.
NI \ younger son Jerem., onl\ si\.
\wanted to keep up %\ iti his older
brother. so \\e got him a hamster.
Within the first %\eek there was trou-
ble. When I noticed the hamster
missing from the cage. I panicked
and asked Jeremy if it escaped.
I calmed down % hen he said he
knew exacill % here it was.
However, the panic returned when he
added, "He twas lonely, so I put him
in with Tomm 's snake to play."
(Thanks to1 licia H)

be used in place of regular canned
tomatoes in most recipes where you
want to create a subtle yet rich, smoky,
tomato flavor," explained Jennifer

tile option for chili, soup. salsa, pizza

10-year-old is dog's best friend; Fifth-grader applies lesson to save choking pet's life
Ten-year-old Tori Grimm's family was cooking Thanksgiving dinner two weeks ago in their New Albany home. Five-year-old
Gizmo peeked with interest over the dog gate in the doorway, until Tori's grandmother tossed him a piece of turkey.


By ERIC SCOTT
CAMPBELL
CNHI News Service
NEW ALBANY, Ind. -
Rarely is a regurgitated
turkey gizzard the
centerpiece of a charming
story. When you add such
characters as the overeager
Pomeranian and the intrepid
schoolgirl, the tale is more
easily swallowed. Ten-year-
old Tori Grimm's family was
cooking Thanksgiving dinner
two weeks ago in their New
Albany home. Five-year-old
Gizmo peeked with interest
over the dog gate in the
doorway, until Tori's
grandmother tossed him a
piece of turkey. "He's not
used to getting scraps, so he
just ate it whole. He just fell
over and started gasping,"
Tori recalled.
'Everybody was yelling'
The family is still struck by
how fast it happened, how
instantly Gizmo was affected
and unable to breathe. But
luckily, Tori moved quickly,
too. "Everybody was yelling
different stuff' frantic
suggestions for saving'
Gizmo, such as sticking a
hand down his throat "so I
just gave him the Heimlich
maneuver," Tori said. The
Community Montessori fifth-
grader learned the technique
last spring in a seminar at
school. Tori wrapped her arms
around the stricken dog's
trunk and applied pressure
with her hands, three times in
30 seconds, until Gizmo
coughed up the food and
resumed breathing. No
discriminating diner, Gizmo
reacted predictably. "He just
started chewing," Tori said.
'Very proud'
Tori's experience impressed
her teacher, Heather Wathen,
who recalled Tori attended thef
Heimlich seminar after
research into the subject
sparked her interest."I think
it's awesome," Wathen said.
"She came in and told me,
and I was just very proud that
she knew enough to even try
the Heimlich maneuver on her
animal." Gizmo isn't Tori's

only animal, though. He's one
of three dogs, dwarfing a
Chihuahua and a Yorkshire
terrier as well as the four cats
and a rat. Tori said she's
interested in becoming a
veterinarian, having
volunteered at the Floyd
County Humane Society two
years ago. She taught puppies
to sit.
'No more real food'
Gizmo has recovered from
his misadventure, barking and
wheezing himself into a
frenzy Wednesday when two
strangers from the newspaper
visited his turf. He's
overweight and has trouble
breathing, but grandmother
Margaret Tyler reported he
seems to have learned a
lesson. "When I hand him his
food now, he takes it a little


slow," Tyler said, chiding
herself: "No more real food
'again, Nana broke the rules!"
Tyler, a diabetic, said she's
taught Tori basic medical
techniques that could help her
in an emergency. But as for
CPR, Tori said, "I don't know
it that well." That's bound to
change, since her mother, Jill,
is certified in the life-saving
procedure. Tori has set the bar
high for herself and others
looking to practically apply
knowledge from Montessori
seminars. But if a. bizarre
emergency calls for someone
to skateboard and milk a goat,
she'll be ready.
