regarding changes, up-
dates and developments in our school,
so that you'have as much information as
possible. First, I would like to make se'v-

ferent changes and information. This
year,-m my opinion, has gone well.
stared out by going to staff and fac-
ulty and laying out my hopes, dreams
and-expectations f6r this school district.
Additionally, I have gone back on vari-
ous issues at other times. I feel that the
teachers, staff and students have done an
exceptional job in the things that I have
S.dA4repssed during those meetings, arid I
'pm 4in'tbe schools and classrooms almost
daily.
One example is the prom. I have been
involved in proms for almost 20*years as
a .teacher,. sponsor and administrator.
Prior to this year's'prom I .(along with
SMr. Hancock and Sheriff Lamb), went
arid met with the students and told them
our expectations in regards to behavior,
dress, dance and other issues. We re-
minded them that this was the first prom
Stobeheld away from the school, and that
' they would be representing us to the
public directly. I was blown away by
how well the prom went, how profes-
sionally it was handled by sponsors and
chaperones, and especially by how well
behaved our students were. It was the
best prom I have been a part of, hands
down.,

HEART MATTERS


Are you a "button-
pusher?" It's a fact that
many of us push buttons
all day long to earn a liv-
ing: cashiers, secretaries,
writers, accountants, etc.'
However, I'm not asking
about your profession,
nor are the buttons I am
referring to visible. The
type of "button-push-
ing" I.want to discuss is
the result of being "in the
know" about a person's
weakness or hang-up
and then using it against
them to win an argu-
ment or prove a point.
Recently I read a story
about a not-so-nice guy
who plotted the death of
a particular man, for no
other reason except his
nationality and religious


beliefs. Obviously he
was radically prejudice,
but was also a family
man with a wife who
was well aware his nar-
row-minded perspec-
tive. The other thing
you need to know about
this not-so-nice guy is
that he had a huge ego
that continually needed
to be fed in order to stay
inflated, and oftenthat
job fell to his wife. As
the story goes, the plot to
kill not only began to un-
ravel, but began to look
as if would be the dowNn-
fall of the not-so-nice
guy. In response, he ran
home to receive a little
comfort and encourage-
ment from his wife. Evi-
dently, she had grown

tired of re-inflating that
ego of his and was fresh
out of reassurance, in
fact, her response was to
'predict his ruin and
point out that it was all a
result, of his own preju-
dice. Button pushed,
game over!
This story is found in
the Biblical book of Es-
ther and our point culmi-
nates in 6:12-13. When
read in the context of the
entire story,. we may be
quick to point out that
the not-so-nice guy
(whose name was
Haman) got what he de-
served. True, but bad
guy or not, the point is
!also to be made that his
wife was privy to his in-
ner thoughts and'desires


like no one else, which
she used to pour salt in
the wounds of his
demise.
Again, I ask, are you a
button-pusher? In the
heat of an argument, do
you turn those weak-
nesses and secrets shared
in vulnerable moments
into weapons of mass de-
struction? In 1 Corinthi-
ans 13:5-7, the Bible re-
minds us that, along with
many other attributes,
love always protects. If
those we are closest to,
(i.e. our spouse, children
and close friends) share
private thoughts and
feelings with us, we must
protect that information
as if it were a, valuable
jewel, and never allow it
to be used it as a weapon
against them. This has to
be. the most painful of
wounds... may we never
forget how much a heart
matters.


Blessings, Angie

0. A. Winburn, Jr.
ScrubHammock@aol.com


It has been brought to
my attention that quite.
possibly, some of the
material. covered in'
these articles may be of
special interest to many.
of the younger genera-
tionr in our area who.
have not had the benefit
of reading suchaccounts.
of the way 'things. were
back several years 'ago.
With that thought in
mind, I plod on, mindful
of the redundancy that
,may be, contained here-
in.
Believedit or not, Mayo,
- was a place where' the
needs ,of the residents
could usually be found,
in one of the stores there.
Many of.the places you
see there on Main street
today, filled with little
knick. knacks called an-
tiques' and such, were
once thriving business-,
es. That' of course was.
the pre,K-Mart and Wal-
Mart days. ,
Qn the back streets:
there were blacksmith
shops, 'livery stables,
grist mills,, cotton gins
and somevothers ,I can't
'recall at this moment.


Mayo was served by
the L.O.P. & G RR and,
The Florida Motor Lines,
a buis company that
served before Grey-
hound. came into exis-
tence., The teamsters
hadn't yet taken over the
moving of goods across
the United States with
those huge semis as it
has now and many items
not 'readily available .in
Mayo could be sum-
moned by phone from
nearby Jacksonville and
arrive by train or bus the
next day.
The phrase "I can have
if for you tomorrow"
was often heard when
an out of stock item was
requested.
Worth mentioning
also is the fact that there
was passenger service in
aind out of Mayo on the
LOP& G. A section in the
depot had a couple of
benches where expec-
tant travelers could bide
their time while await-'
itg the arrival of the dai-
ly train. The gas and pe-
troleum products for Mr.
Deep' Standard Oil Dis-
tributorship came by
train also. He had a large
storage tank across the
track near my granddad-
dy's house where he
*would transfer the gas
,from the tank' car. I've
seen youngsters up there
.'on' top of that tank car
with the hatch open,
breathing those fumes
'from the gas.'.Fortunate-
ly there were nq casual-
ties from the practice. At
least not at that time.
My earliest recollec-
tior was that Mr. Dees

a while back.,...


had a small, prope
built and equipped del
ery truck to serve his c
tomers with petrolei
products. There was
metering device on t]
'truck and the gas was.

heavy can with a lid.

duty himself at one til

along that side of the
street which was also US
27 and navigating
through town called for
a little extra precaution,
lest someone should
back out in front of an
oncoming' vehicle.
Let me fast forward for
just a moment to a time
when I had .learned to
drive but was not yet old
enough to have a drivers
license. Occasionally, I
got the opportunity to
deliver a bag of cow feed
to some of those ladies
around town who still
did their own milking
and of course I had to
choose my time when
my daddy was else-
where and I knew to stay
on the back streets. One
day after taking a couple
of bags of feed to Mrs.
Maurice (Dona) Folsom,
I got my nerve up and
decided to settle that as
yet unanswered question
as to whether or not I
was ready to make that
run down main street.
My driving skills were
adequate but that old
truck was a little large
for my small stature and
I had to use one arm
around the steering col-
umn to maintain a posi-
tion that would afford
clear vision.
The story had a happy
ending, at least for, the
time being and I had ex-
ecuted perfectly, that
"rite, of passage" as I


Local AttorneYv Authors Another Novel


re a 'Attorney Pierce Kelley, formerly
old with the Lake City office of the Three
re- Rivers Legal Services program, which
ght services seventeen counties in North
ces.. Florida, and is now in private practice
ted in Cedar Key, announces the. release of
car another novel, entitled A Foreseeable
was Risk, which is a story about a friend
of his who was paralyzed after a fall
off of a horse. "This book tells what ift'
is like to go from being a young,
strong, virile ,ian'to being in, a wheel-
chair in an instant as a result'of an un-
y fortunate incident. "My friend, who
Helped me write this book by provid-'
\ ing me with details of his ordeal, is
now a musician and lives in Cedar
Key part of the year. ,
He fell off a horse while working as
a guide for an outfitter in Yosemite
National Forest about fifteen years
ago and became a paraplegic-when a
disk in his thoracic spine was crushed
after the horse fell on top of him. "It is
based on his true story, which I have
fictionalized. It is a.story of survival
and I think it is a story that people
will like to read. ILlearned a great deal
about his situation while writing it."
Kelley, who has also written a legal
text book, Civil Litigation: A Case
Study, which he used to teach parale-
gal students at St. Petersburg College
for many years, as well as a "how-to"
instructional book for parents of be-
ginning tennis players, says. that he
likes to create a plot which most peo-
ple can relate to. "I like to think that
my books entertain readers,, first and
foremost, but I also like to provide le-
gal scenarios which are realistic and
could happen to any of us at any
time."'
1i"The legal issue in A Foreseeable
Risk involves the question of whether
or not a release everyone is required


to sign when going on a trail ride, '
whitewater rafting, sky-diving or ,
even on a ride at an amusement parkj..;
is valid. The legal issue centers o
around what risks are "foreseeable"
or can be anticipatedand which onies
are not. "I think people will be sur-
prised by what they will find, if they
read the book,-but most of all, I hope
they enjoy the read."
The book begins on a raft on the.
Flathead River in Glacier Natidbal
Park and ends in Glacier. In Septem- "
ber, Mr. Kelley will travel to Montana.;
for some book-signing events at the'-:

First American Cancer

Society Relay for Life

a huge success!
The inaugural American Cancer Society Relay For
Life of Lafayette County was a resounding success!
It could not have been done without the concerned
and compassionate citizens of this community! Our
goal was to raise $35,000. With hard work, dedica-
tion, and support of the community this year's Relay
For Life raised an astounding $45,000 in the fight
against cancer! Thank you Lafayette County for
your support! We hope you were inspired as we
were by this night of fellowship, remembrance, and
hope.
With the money raised at Relay, the American Can-
cer Society is able to provide patient services to peo-
ple touched by cancer in our community and nation-
wide. You can visit the American Cancer Society
website at www.cancer.org to learn more about the
life-affirming cancer research, education, advocacy,
and patient services programs you're supporting.
The programs and services the American Cancer So-
ciety provides to those touched by cancer would not
be possible without the enthusiasm, commitment,
and talent of generous Relayers like you! We look
forward to this event growing and enhancing more
lives!
This Relay would not have achieved this much
success without the dedication and planning of the

By Robert Goldberg
Medicare Part D, the
prescription drug bene-
fit for seniors, now of-
fers an online service
for beneficiaries. Called
"Plan Finder," it allows
seniors to find and
compare prescription
plans. This user-friend-
ly online tool is just
one of the'ways
Medicare Part D is
helping seniors make
informed decisions
about their health care
-' and save money.
More than 25 million
Part D participants fill
more than 100 million'
prescriptions each
month, and more than
85 percent of beneficia-
ries consistently report
being satisfied with
their coverage.

Notably, costs to tax-
payers and enrollees
are substantially lower
than first predicted,
thanks in part to the
healthy competition,
the program is built
upon.,
Today dozens of pri-
vate companies across
the country offer more
than 1,800 approved
:Medicare Part D plans.
And on average, pre-
miums are about $28
per month --- 37 per-
cent lower than antici-
pated when Part D was
created six years ago.
Plus, the cost of the
program to taxpayers
, this yearwill,be,about
$30 billion less than
first projected.
With so many com-
peting plans, though,
many beneficiaries find
it difficult to pick the
one that's right fpr
them. The plans vary
in lists of approved
drugs and treatments,
premiums, deductibles,
and out-of-pocket max-
imums.: Additionally,
the plans differ in how
they deal with the infa-


mous "donut hole."
That is the gap in drug
coverage where benefi-
ciaries have used up
their basic drug bene-
fit, but have not yet
reached the point
where Medicare's "cat-
astrophic coverage"
kicks.in.
This is why
Medicare's online re-
sources so valuable.
The website allows'
users' to find and com-
pare plans, assessing
how they will change
next year and poten-
tially helping them to
identify a plan that
may better suit their
medical or budgetary
needs.
Seniors need only
make a list of all their
current prescriptions
and dosages, then head
to www.Medicare.gov.
After entering this in-
formation on the web-,
site, "Plan Finder",
kicks out a list of all
the appropriate insur-
ance plans and their
costs in the area.
Users can even com-
pare the cost of filling
prescriptions by mail
versus buying directly
from a local retail phar-
macy. This is especially
useful for seniors who
take several prescrip-
tion drugs.,
There are other inno-
vations coming to.
Medicare Part D next
year as well that will
further build upon the,
program's success and
help seniors make
smart, informed deci-
sions about their health
care.

LHS VARSITY BASEBALL TEAM


CELEBRATES
The Lafayette Hornet baseball team
would like to recognize the seniors
who will be leaving us this month.
They celebrated their senior night on
April 6, in a home game against Bell.
It was a victorious effort in the cele-
bration of three of our graduating se-
niors: Sergio Perez,. Cody Singletary,
and Jamal Reid.
Leading the charge to a 16-3 win
over Bell was Perez who went 1 for 2
at the plate with three runs scored.
The other two seniors followed Perez
up closely. Singletary was 3 for 4 at
the plate, scoring three runs, and Reid
finished his last regular season home
game going 2 for 3 with two runs
scored, including a towering home
run.


SENIOR NIGHT
The Hornets finished the regular
season with a strong win in Perry on
Thursday, April 23rd with an impres-
sive 8 2 victory over Taylor County.
The final game awarded the Hornets
an 18-5 record on the regular season,
and an 11-1 district play record. Fin-
ishing #1 seed in the district, the Hor-
nets earned a bye in the first round of
the district tournament to be held in
Trenton April 26 May 1. The faced

What you should know about being


caught outside in a thunderstorm


"When thunder roars,
go indoors!"
There is no place out-
side that is safe in a
thunderstorm. For that
reason, it is imperative
that you plan ahead to
avoid this dangerous sit-
uation. If you're outside
and hear thunder, the
only way to significantly
reduce your risk of be-
coming a lightning casu-
alty is to 'get to, a sub-
stantial building or
hard-topped metal vehi-
cle as fast as you can. In
addition, you should
avoid the following situ-
ations which could in-
crease your risk of be-
coming a lightning casu-
alty. Remember there is
no substitute for getting
to a safe place.
Avoid open areas.
Don't be the tallest ob-
ject in the area.
Stay away from isolat-
ed tall trees, towers, or
utility poles. Lightning
tends to strike the taller
objects in an area.
Stay away from metal
conductors such as
wires or fences. Metal
does not attract light-
ning, but lightning can
travel long distances
through it.


If you are with a
group of people, it is a
good idea to spread out.
While this actually in-
creases the chance that
someone might get
struck, it tends to pre-
vent multiple casualties,
and increases the
chances that someone
could help if a person is
struck.
(Excerpt from new
Thunderstorm & Light-
ning brochure due out
in May 09)

Lightning Crouch Rule
Disregard the use of
this once prevalent
lightning safety sugges-
tion since lightning ex-
perts on the national
team stated there was
no conclusive scientific
evidence to support that
crouching would miti-
gate an individual from
getting a direct hit with
any more effectiveness
than if a person ran for,
shelter. The message
that we need to relay to
the public is to get to a
place of safety as quick-
ly as possible, Versus
dropping down to a
crouch position, even if
you are caught outdoors
in the open.


I hope this helps pro-
vide additional light
and clarification on the
National Weather Ser-
vice lightning safety
message policy. If you
have any questions,
please contact the Emer-
gency Management De-
partment (386)-294-1950.

Heritage Day at Hatch Bend Baptist Church

Linda Smith
Hatch Bend Baptist Church's heritage began over
a hundred years ago. Around 1862, their ancestors
began what was and still is, Hatch Bend Baptist
Church. Many great men and women of faith have
come and gone since that time and there have been
many great men of God behind it's pulpit, preach-
ing His word, but always with the same message,
"there is only one true God and one way to heav-
en.....through Christ Jesus. *
Heritage Day was celebrated at Hatch Bend Bap-
, ist- church on Sunday April 26. Arriving at church
that bright, sunny, Sunday morning, one could see
the front of the church lined with a row of tractors "
that various church members drove to church.
- Some of the ladies of the church were dressed in
long dresses and hats and some of the men came
decked out in their overalls, for this specialocca-
sion.
Lots of things have changed down through the
years, the church building, mode of transportation,
the way we dress, our method of reaching folks, but
one thing has remained the same.....the same God,
the same salvation, and a body of believers that still
holds true to the standards of the Bible.
Folks may not arrive at church these days in their
horse drawn buggies, or on a mule, or later perhaps .-.- ':'--
a tractor, and they may not meet in a small wooden '
building with a pot- bellied stove'for heat and a Brooke Walker stands in front of Papa's (Sammie Smith) tractor, before heading off to her Sunday School class.
"funeral pallor" fan to cool themselves, but some ',' .'
things will always remain the same. God never
changes, and His word remains true and faithful, as B
should His.followers.
Looking back on our heritage gives us great plea-
sure in thinking ofthe way things were, but that
doesn't mean we should remain in the past, we
have to move on, accept change, adapt to the times,
but always with the same goal of winning lost
souls to the Lord. "You may change the packaging,
but the goods inside (God's Word) never changes!
Bro. Doyle Bell of Tallahassee, formerly a. Suwan-
nee County native, was the speaker for the day, as
well as revival services following. After morning
worship services everyone enjoyed lunch together
in the fellowship hall.

sistance are: Calhoun,

"This kind of local, di-

successful disaster recov-
ery," said Doug Wright,
state official who is lead-
ing the state's role in the.
recovery effort.
The specialists, wear-
ing their familiar blue
FEMA and SERT shirts,
are in the field meeting


with storm survivors, at
recovery and senior cen-
ters, at community orga-
nizations, churches and
with local officials to ex-
plain the recovery
process and provide in-
formation. Teams are dis-
tributing thousands of in-
formational flyers, visit-
ing scores of homes and
businesses and working
in the affected counties to
help identify and assist
disaster victims.
Team members are re-
minding people that it is
necessary to apply to
FEMA for assistance in,
order to be considered el-
igible for help. There are
two easy ways to begin
the application process.
One is to call FEMA's
toll-free number, 800-621-


FEMA (3362) or TTY 800-

working as possible. If it 1) Enhanced disci-


line, Pupil Progression
Plan, and dress code ex-
pectations for the future.
2) A new "modified
block" curriculum at
LHS, which will allow
for expanded tutoring
and remediation of
struggling students, and
increased class oppqrtu-:
nities for all students.
3) Additional Title I
teachers to provide pull-
out tutoring at each
school.
4) RTI (Response to In-
tervention) coordinator
for the district, whose
sole purpose is to make
sure that we are address-
es those curricular needs
that our students at all
levels have.
5) We are bringing
back the Health Occupa-
tions Program next year.
This historically has'
been one of our most
successful vocational
programs.
6) We are adding a vi-
sual arts/web design
program at LHS that will
be articulated with
NFCC.
7) We. are adding TV
Production as a class as
LHS
8) We are going to
haye dual enrollment
and' advanced place-
ment classes (for the first
time), at LHS
9) We will be going to
a differentiated instruc-
tion model at LES,
where we will be better
able to place and serve
children in all subject ar-
eas, not just by reading
'scores. This will prevent,
children from falling


through the cracks in
isolated subject areas,
because we will monitor
them better.
10) Adding Pinna-
cle/Navigator Plus soft-
ware. The Pinnacle Pro-
gram will allow parents
to check, in "'real time,"
their child's grades,' see
assignments, and. con-,
tact the teacher in vari-'
ous ways. Navigator
Plus is a new software
program that will help
our teachers know more
about what FCAT areas
each class is struggling
in, and design better cur-
riculum maps and plans
to deal with those issues
daily.
11) We are going to
have a staggered start
times at the two schools.
LES will start the same
way, but LHS will have a
slightly later start (about
8:25), so that we can
have a common plan-
ning/tutoring period in
the morning, and we can
address FCAT "skills,
training, or even stu-
dent tutoring during
that time. Along with the
modified block, we will
be better equipped to-
serve students' needs.
12) N6w student pick-
up system this year.
Meets safety needs bet-
ter, and parents and stu-,
dents are gone much
quicker than in the past.
13) We will be upgrad-
ing our camera systems
next year with better
digital equipment and,
enhanced capabilities for
security and student
safety.

tance of the community's

four hurdles to a box that
they leap upon to release a

ball and bring it back to
their handler so that the
next dog on their team
may then run the course.
There are two leagues that
teams can compete in to
win titles and awards.

.h Mens health sci
Many women feel that they can't give a man directions. Maybe it's the
stubborn' tendency of males, or maybe it's that they don't like to be told what
-_.to do. If comes as no surprise, then, that it's difficult to get most men to go to
Sthe dottor. Maybe:they don't wantto talk about their health problems.
Terhaps'they feel normal and don't see a need to make an appointment. Or it
could be because they don't want to hear that anythtung is wrong with them.
Whatever the case maybe, it's-important that men get regular health
s' screening tests. Catching problems early on, can often help prevent them
from turning into something more serious down the road.
SBelow are some guidelines on men's screening tests. If you are a man
reading this, talk to your doctor about when he thinks \ ou should schedule
these exams, as test frequency varies based on Nour agc. \our health history
and your family s health history.
BODY MEASUREMENTS
Taking your height, weight and body-mass index I BMI) helps determine
whether your are overweight. Overweight people are more likely to have
high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes. BNI is. assessed using a
mathematical form of weight and height.
BLOOD PRESSURE
A blood-pressure test is the only way to determine if you have high blood
pressure. If undetected and untreated, it can increase your risk of heart
-attack. stroke, heart failure and kidney failure. According to the American
Heart Association, you should get it checked at least once every two years --
and more often if your doctor says it's high.
CHOLESTEROL TEST
A blood test is used to determine your good (HDL i and bad (LDL),
cholesterol levels. According to the AHA, cholesterol is a soft. waxy
substance found among the lipids (fats) in the bloodstream and in all your
body's cells. Humans need cholesterol, but a high le el increases your risk of
heart disease and stroke. Men age 20 years or older should have their
cholesterol checked every five years and more frequently as they age or if
they have high cholesterol levels.
COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING
This screening uses various tests to examine the colon for polyps that may
become cancerous or to find colon cancer before s' mptomis occur. Men 50 or
older should talk to their doctor about which tret :ue ri-ht for them and
when to have them done.'
PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING TEST
Prostate cancer is detected through a blood te thit determines the amount
of prostate-specific antigen (PDA) in your blood, )or through a digital rectal
exam (DRE) where a doctor inserts his lubricated, _ol.. ed finger into the
'rectum to examine the prostate gland for any irregtllu cities. The American
.Cancer Society suggests that men get tested for prostate cancer every year,
starting at age 50.


reening checklist


S *'*-' :'' -


Routine healthcare checkups can help doctors spot problems early on so they
can be treated before they become more serious.

TESTICULAR EXAM
This test examines the testicles for enlargement, swelling or a lump.
Doctors usually check for this at your physical exam. especially if you tell
them that you've noticed a change in your testicles or are between the ages of,
15 and 40.
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE TESTS
These tests determine if you have a sexually transmitted disease (STDs)
like syphilis, chlamydia or HIV/AIDS. Your doctor will determined which -
tests you should get based on risk factors and sexual history.
DENTAL EXAM
During this exam, a dentist will examine your teeth and gums for cavities .
or oral cancer. The American Dental Association recommends that you go
once or twice a year for a checkup and cleaning.
EYE EXAM
Eye exams assess if you need your vision corrected by either wearing
prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. They also identify existing vision
problems like glaucoma or cataracts. Eye experts suggest that you get your
eyes checked by an eye-care professional every year.
HEARING TEST
A hearing test gauges your speech and sound recognition at various levels.
Ask your doctor how often you should-get your hearing tested.

'Plains' ol'



Jimmy



Carter talks



about small



town appeal

"T have always lived in
Plains, I was born here and
my wife was born here. Our
ancestors have lived here
:sice 1833," Carter said,
singling, "so, we haven't
gotten very far in life."

By Becky Holland
CNHI News Service

PLAINS, Ga: During the morning
hotis Saturday, downtown business
owners prepared for a busy day before the
Shortline Excursion Train arrived with.
tourists.
In the middle of this, he slipped through
the front doors of the Plains Antique Mall
and Historic Inn, dressed in a suit,
reminiscent of a grandfather heading to
church.
Actually, fie is a grandfather and he
would be heading to Winston-Salem,
NG., later that day to a church meeting of
sots.,
.He is a big part of the reason that
tourists come to Plains.
Yet, as he strolled.through the door, his
smile was genuine, the grasp of his hand
was firm, and his mannerisms were warm,
making one feel instantly at ease.
aJimmy Carter may be the 39th
President of the United States, but to the
people of the community, he is just
Plains' ol' Jimmy Carter.
And he'likes that.
"rter sat comfortably in one of the,
lei chairs 6ofthe sitting area of the '
'"A"itique Mall, and noticed the tape
retIrder on the table beside him, "Good,
y-O are going to be taping this. Though I
like to take notes, it.is good to have
something to fall back on."
S .Settling back into the chair, Carter
reflected on the appeal of Plains, and
upon being asked what song on his iPod
v6iuld best describe Plains, answered, "I
think a lot of Willie Nelson's music
describes Plains.
"He is one of my favorites and I have
ha4 the opportunity of going on stage
witi him several times to help sing the
last song, which is not very good for my
voice," Carter paused, with a slight smile,
"and usually, we end up singing
'Amnazing Grace.' Also, I think his
general selection of songs are some that.
the:people of Plains would like."
-~hough Carter had the choice to live in
other areas after he left the White House,
hand his wife Rosalynn decided to stay
inrPlains.
S I have always lived in Plains, I was
born here and my wife was born here.
Our ancestors have lived here since
1833," Carter said, smiling, "so, we
haven't gotten very far in life.
.".We're still in 'the same place we
started. When I was four years old; I lived
next do6r to my wife, my future wife. She
v as one at the time. So, when we left the
favy, we came back to Plains and when
ve left the Governor's Mansion, we came
btck to Plains. When we left the White
I Hase, we came back. It is just home.
r J ur church is here, ourfriends are
lbe, my land is here, pur members are
h14. This is kind of a haven for us."
spite of his family history and
c section to the community, Carter said
t" most appealing part of the small town
it "the harmony in which we relate to
esch other. I believe we have about 60


p recent African Americans and 40 percent
Whites, but we don't pay attention to the
racial distinctions.
"We work side by side in harmony with
eIch other. We have a very strong
committee pf about 15 people who take
cure of the future of Plains, and I think
tlat is a matter of people thinking about
Fllains, that we live here, and we are all
li e one big family. There is no prejudice
h -re, no racial distinction, and we live in
b irmony. We go to different churches, but
ve do visit each other's churches. We are
s ill close."
Another main attraction of Plains has

'President Jimmy Carter enjoys the easy-going, small town charm of Plains. He said he hopes it never changes.

and recently donated to the Better
Hometown Committee by Blake Sullivan.
Carter and his family lived in the house at
one time.
"I had always heard of the haunted
house, and as a boy, had lived next door
to the house and the cemetery, so it was
almost out of the question for us children
to walk down U.S. 280, by the cemetery
and the haunted house after dark, so I
would walk down the railroad track to
avoid the haunted house," Carter said.
."And there were numerous reports of a
woman in the upstairs rooms, with a long
White dress on, with a lantern, walking
around. We didn't have electricity in
those days," Carter explained, "and the
general atmosphere of the place was
always very sobering. I wouldn't say
scary.
"I wouldn't say melancholy, but it was
like it just wanted to be by itself. It didn't
have a welcoming feel to it for children
and others to intrude on the property."
Carter continued, 'When we were in
the Navy, I was friends with Sonny
Faircloth, who lived there for a time. I
remember one tale he told, and I wouldn't
say that it was a lie. We would hunt coons
with him, and he told us on a hunt one
night that he would look out the window
and see a black dog out in the yard, and
the dog wasn't his. One night, he went out
and the dog was near the porch, and he
decided to walk down the back steps, and
the dog didn't snarl or anything; it was a
friendly dog.
"Finally, he walked up close to the dog,
and put his hand down to pet the dog, and
the dog wasn't there." Carter's eyes
widened with an awed expression.
"It was just an image of a dog," Carter
paused, "I had a personal experience.out
there again, when I was a young man and
had come back from the Navy. Thad Wise
lived out there for a while. He was the
head of the medical society here. And his
nurse, Ms. Abrams, who also happened to
be my godmother, and, when Dr. Thad
was seriously ill, I went out'to stay one
night at her request to stay with her
because she needed some help.
"I hadn't had any supper when I got
there, because I had been working in the
field. So, she was in the kitchen next to
the big bedroom where Dr. Thad was
lying, and she was cooking me some


supper."
Carter paused, "I remember, she used to
punch a hole in the center of a big slice of
bread, and she would break'an egg and
fry it in there on both sides, and it was <.
delicious."
He continued, "All of a sudden, we
heard a strange, horrible sound from the
yard that I had never heard before, except
on television with wolves and coyotes
howling. We looked out the window, and
saw all of the dogs sitting on their
haunches, looking at the sky, and they
were wailing in a surreal tone. I had never
heard anything like that. We went and
checked on Dr. Thad; and he had just ,
died.
"Those dogs, and they were his dogs,
knew that Dr. Thad's spirit had just left. I
was very concerned about it. I was a little
nervous. I was a grown man and had been
in a submarine before, so I wouldn't say I
was afraid, but it was a sobering
experience."
Carter recalled moving into the house
after Wise died, and raising his family
there. His sons discovered a hidden room
in the attic, of which Carter and his wife
had "surmised, Rosalynn did, she is
interested in mental health, that the
woman we had seen was mentally ill and
maybe the room was probably where the
lady had been hidden."
Pausing, Carter said, "I think it is better,
when talking about a haunted house to not
try to explain things too thoroughly."
Of the Plains Better Hometown
.Committee's desire to renovate the house,
Carter was very much agreeable. In fact,
said the former President, "I have had my
eye on the house for, oh, 10 years or so.
Blake Sullivan. owned it, and he rented
the house to some folks who had not
taken care of it, and he built a fence
around it and just abandoned it and he
was considering moving the house to
Westville. I had tried to convince him to
give it to us, and he finally did last year."
Another favorite spot of Carter's in
'Plains is the Plains Historic Inn. "All of
this used to belong to my uncle, my
daddy's only brother, and at the time it
was the Plains Mercantile, and when he
died, my cousin inherited it, and when my
cousin died, I made arrangements to have
it given to the committee. When that
finally happened, I volunteered to help


with the construction.
"At the time, I had a trip planned to
Africa, a long trip, but I had to cancel the
trip, because that was when President
Bush Sr., decided to invade Iraq, and I
was going into a lot of Muslim countries,
so I had to cancel, the trip. I volunteered
to do the work, well, to supervise, and so
I was in charge of the reconditioning it,
the outside the brick, the inside, putting in
floors, putting in the booths,, and we .
didn't have any rooms upstairs, and that
was all just two big rooms, like this and
we did all the work.
"I asked Rosalynn to be in charge of the
decorations and they decided to make the
seven suites dedicated to one decade of
my life."

It was at that point in the interview that
his wife Rosalynn surprised him by
walking through the front doors.
She had stopped in for a moment to say
hello as she was on her way to do a quick
errand. Carter held his wife's hand, as she
stood by and explained, We take
groceries to people in the area from our
church every month and we had someone
make 30 loaves of banana bread for us to
take, so we're going to stop down there
and say thank you."
Jimmy Carter asked, "You're going to
save one, aren't you?"
She looked at her husband, and said,
"Yes, she made one for us:"
"That's good. That's my favorite," he
said.
"They were little loaves, and it was
really sweet of her. We got through
because we split up in two groups, so we
thought we would stop by and tell her
thank you," she said.
After watching his wife leave the store,
Carter pondered on how to describe
Plains, and then said, "Hospitality and
unchanging. What people like to see is a
town the way it was in the 1930s. We try
not to change anything. We would like to
see that everyone who comes here would
feel welcome."
And Plains' Jimmy Carter left the
building with a smile, a thank you and a
wave of the hand, telling those close by,
"See you soon."
