As far as being the only female deputy with the Lafayette
County Sheriff's Office, Tysall says, "I don't really notice it.
It doesn't matter to me. I just feel like a deputy."




Happy to be here


Lafayette's first
female deputy,
Jacqueline
'Happy' Tysall,
is right where
she wants to be
By Stephenie
Livingston
stephenie.livingston
@gaflnews.com

Dressed in a bright
pink sweater, a shiny
new badge on her hip,
Lafayette's first female
sheriff's deputy brush-
es back her blond hair
and says it was never
her goal to become
Lafayette's first female
deputy. And as for
how the road to law
enforcement is differ-
ent for a woman, she
said, "I've never been a
man, so I can't really
compare it."


Jacqueline "Happy"
Tysall, 26, said she did
not know she was
Lafayette's first female
deputy until someone
mentioned it to her.
Her aim was simply to
become a law enforce-
ment officer, some-
thing she hopes to still


be twenty years from
now.
Originally from St.
Petersburg, Tysall's
family moved to Mayo
when she was four
years old. "
My parents said I
was a real happy baby,
always smiling. So


they started calling me
'Happy' and the name
just stuck, I guess,"
Tysall said.
After graduating
from Lafayette High in
2002, Tysall enlisted in
the Army. In February
2003 she was deployed
to Iraq.
"Iraq was an experi-
ence," she said with
raised eyebrows above
big, blue eyes. "It
taught me to be appre-
ciative. Being in anoth-
er country where they
don't have the free-
doms we have taught
me to be appreciative
of even small things,"
she paused. "Like
plumbing."
After returning
home and graduating
from both the police
academy in Madison

School board cancels

workers' salary freeze
By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.livingston@gaflnews.com

Lafayette educators are breathing a sigh of relief.
Last summer, the school board was forced to freeze
salary step increases for school employees in the
wake of statewide budget cuts. However, the board
has now canceled that action and reinstalled step in-
creases. During the September board meeting Terry
Fillyaw moved to void the freeze implemented on
June 16 and the motion was unanimously approved.
All Lafayette school employees will now receive a
step increase retroactive to July 1, 2009.

PAGE 2A THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2009


I was intrigued to learn
recently that after many
natural catastrophes there
are professionals who
come to inspect the after-
math, not to survey the
damage, but to seek out
anything that endured
the devastation. For ex-
ample, following the
deadly tsunami in the In-
dian Ocean in 2004, engi-
neers from the US and
Canada examined struc-
tures and buildings that
withstood this force of na-
ture to better understand
how to prevent such ruin
in the future. Of particu-
lar interest was the foun-
dation of any buildings
that remained in compar-
ison to those that were
swept away.
Anyone who has ever
experienced building a
home, even under normal
conditions, understands
the importance of a solid
foundation. If the founda-


tion is not adequate, the
rest of the building is at
risk. In Matthew 7:24-27,
the Bible records Jesus,
similar warning:
"Therefore, everyone
who hears these words of
mine and puts them into
practice is like a wise man
who built his house on
the rock. The rain came
down, the streams rose,
and the winds blew and
beat against that house;
yet it did not fall, because
it had its foundation on
the rock. But everyone
who hears these words of
mind and does not put
them into practice is like a
foolish man who built his
house on sand. The rain
came down, the streams
rose, and the winds blew
and beat against that
house, and it fell with a
great crash."
This passage communi-
cates a powerful message
to believers whose foun-


the latest news and stories that touch home.
We want to give it to you.

dation has become based
more on "curb appeal"
than the Word of God.
Curb appeal becomes our
basis if what others can
see matters more than the
condition of our heart.
Notice that both the wise
and the foolish man
"hears these words of
mine." It is possible to at-
tend church every Sun-
day and "hear" God's
Word, and not allow it to
be the standard and sup-
port for our lives. Per-
haps we are just attending
church because that is
what we think "good
people" do. Curb appeal,
looking good on the out-
side.
The problem with curb
appeal is that it makes a
flimsy foundation. Jesus
was pretty straight for-
ward in John 16:33 when
He warned us, "In this
world you will have trou-
ble, problems that feel


like earthquakes, hurri-
canes and tsunamis will
come into our marriages
and families. If our foun-
dation is insubstantial,
our families will crash; if
the foundation is solid,
we will not fall.
In Psalm 117:2, the
Bible declares, "For great
is his love toward us, and
the faithfulness of the
LORD endures forever.
It is interesting to note
that the Hebrew word for
"faithfulness" has the
same root word as a foun-
dational "pillar." The im-
plication is something
that cannot be moved nor
shaken, that endures for-
ever. Let's build the foun-
dation for our marriages,
homes, and relationships
on the faithfulness of
God's Word, not some
fleeting curb appeal that
will be swept away, be-
cause your heart matters!

Have you had your 2010 Medicare


Part D Drug Plan Check-up?


It's that time of year again! Medicare's Annual
Enrollment Period for the Part D: Prescription
Drug Plans is from November 15, to December 31.
Chances are that you will see an increase in your
plan premium, deductible, drug costs and
changes in your plan formulary for 2010.
By now you should have received information
from your current plan on the changes to expect
in 2010. This information only tells you how
much your drugs will cost in the Initial Coverage.
Do you know how to calculate just how much
your plan premium, deductible and drugs will
cost you for the whole year?
To begin with, most low cost plans will require
up to a $310 deductible (Pre-initial Coverage).
This means that you will be paying full cost for
your drugs until the deductible is met.
Once that deductible is met (or you do not have
a deductible), you will reach Initial Coverage. In
this level you will pay, on the average, 25% of the
cost of your drugs. BUT, the system calculates the
cost of your drugs at full cost to determine when
you reach the Gap.
For 2010, the Gap (Post-initial Coverage) begins
when the full cost your drug reach $2,830. Re-
member, this is arrived from calculating the full
cost of the drugs you purchase. Once you hit the
Gap, you will pay full price for your drugs until
you reach $4,550 out-of-pocket costs for your
drugs. Confused yet?
The last Part D level is Catastrophic. Once you
have paid $4,550 in eout-ot-pocket drug costs, you
will reach this level.
Medicare beneficiaries that are assigned a plan
by Medicare should have a plan check-up. You
need to find out if your assigned plan will cover
your drugs (on the plans formulary) so you
wonit be paying a high price for any of your
drugs.
In 2010, there are 47 stand-alone drug plans in
the State of Florida. Medicare provides a Plan
Finder Tool at HYPERLINK
"http://www.Medicare.gov" www.Medicare.gov
to assist you in figuring out which plan will cover
your drugs at the least cost to you. If you do not
have access to a computer or need help in under-
standing this program, please call 1-800-262-2243


to be referred to a SHINE volunteer near you.
SHINE is a volunteer program with the FL Dept
of Elder Affairs offering free, unbiased, and confi-
dential assistance to help you understand your
Part D options as well as Medicare,
Medicare/Medicaid and Supplemental Insurance.
Through Social Security, there is a program to
help low income beneficiaries with the plan pre-
mium, deductible, and cost of your drugs called
Extra Help or Low Income Subsidy (LIS). You
will have no Gap when you have Extra Help
(LIS). If you have full Medicaid, the state is pay-
ing for your Medicare Part B, or if you are receiv-
ing SSI, you automatically receive LIS status. If
you are (in 2009):


Single
Assets total
Couple
Assets total


Income is $16,248 or less
$12,510 or less
Income is $21,864 or less
$25,010 or less


Assets do not count your home, the land your
home is on or your vehicles. They do count all
your cash in the bank, CDs, stocks, bonds, annu-
ities, cash value on your life insurance policies,
and any additional real-property. Please ask for
an application.
During the Gap there may be programs that will
help you to pay for your drugs. The Florida Dis-
count Drug Card is one program that offers a
small percentage off the retail cost of a drug.
Also, depending on your income, you may qualify
for one of the free drug programs provided by the
pharmaceutical companies. Donit forget to ask
your pharmacist if there is a generic drug avail-
able or even a lower cost brand name drug in the
same drug category as one of your expensive
drugs. SHINE can help you understand your op-
tions.
Don't find out in January that you should have
looked into other options. Be an informed con-
sumer! Everyone with a Part D Drug Plan needs
to have a plan check-up. Call SHINE today for a
site near you or ask to be referred to a local vol-
unteer. Call 1-800-262-2243 and connect with a
SHINE volunteer near you!


SHEEP IN NEED


_e
David H. Matier, Doctor
of Pastoral Counseling
Many of God's people
are hurting in our day.
They seem to be expect-
ed to always have a
smile on their face or
they are considered to be
"second class Chris-
tians," but Christians
suffer too. When close
relatives die Christians
suffer grief! When Chris-
tians are diagnosed with
life threatening diseases
they consider it a cause


for concern even though
they know the Lord is
faithful. Christians suffer
from depression, anxiety,
Post Traumatic Syn-
drome and other mental
health conditions -
many of which just call
for a counselor a per-
son to talk to and who
should be more able to
help them than their pas-
tors?
God's men need to re-
alize their responsibility
to their people. Why
send them off to be
counseled by those out
in the world when you
have been called to
"shepherd the flock."
Now there are some oc-
casions that call for med-
ication anti-depres-
sants, anti-anxiety meds
and/or anti-psychotic
medications or meds for
things like ADHD. In


those cases your sheep
must go to a psychiatrist
because only a MD can
prescribe meds. But un-
less your sheep needs
medication you should
be able to handle any
counseling because you
have the Word of God,
the "...truth" (John
17:17). In secular situa-
tions counselors are dis-
couraged from using the
Bible if they know any-
thing about the Bible! Of-
ten the thing the individ-
ual needs is in God's
Word if they could only
be introduced to the
wonderful Savior! He is
the answer the primary
problems of life.
But pastors, the prima-
ry reason more people
don't use their pastor
when they are in need of
counseling is the lack, or
at least perceived lack, of

SSHS Continuing to keep students safe


Lighthouse Christian
Academy After
School Program
For the past three years,
it has been a privilege for
the students and staff of
Lighthouse Christian
Academy to participate in
the federal grant, Safe
Schools Healthy Stu-
dents, hosted by the
Lafayette County School
District. We were thrilled
to be included as partners
in the community wide
initiative to enhance the
safety and education of
the students in this coun-
ty.
Participation in the
grant allows our school to
operate a Lego Robotics
Club for students in 4th -
9th grades. In this club,
the students build robots
out of Lego pieces. In
turn, the robots must be
programmed to complete
a variety of tasks in a giv-
en amount of time. The
tasks are directly related
to a given problem for
which the students must
find solutions. Lego Ro-
botics uses fun and inter-
esting activities to build
various skills such as
teamwork, problem solv-
ing, and communication -
just to name a few. The
Lego Robotic Club had
many successes last year;
we're looking forward to
another winning season
this year!
After school tutoring is
another large component
of the Safe Schools
Healthy Students grant.
Many of our students are
able to take advantage of
this program with no cost
to the family. This is very
beneficial as we have seen
the classroom perfor-
mance of the many of our
students improve.
It is so important for
student to be engaged in
fun yet stimulating activi-


ties after school. Safe
School Healthy Students
has allowed LCA to offer
such activities. Not only
has participation in this
project greatly enhanced
our school program; it
has also benefited our
students and parents in a
tremendous way.
The Lafayette District
Schools Safe Schools
Healthy Students initia-
tive provides after-school
programs at ABCD,
Lighthouse Christian
Academy, Lafayette Ele-
mentary School and


Lafayette High School.
Anyone wanting more
information about the
Safe Schools Healthy Stu-
dents Initiative can con-
tact Becky Sharpe, the
Project Director, at 386-
294-1417 or by email at
bsharpe@lafayette.kl2.fl.
us. The Safe Schools
Healthy Students Part-
nership Meetings are
held the second Tuesday
of each month at 9:30 am
in the SSHS Building.
Community members
and parents are encour-
aged to attend.


Seeds from the Sower
Michael A. Guido
A motorist, picked up unconscious after an accident,
opened his eyes as he was being carried into a gas sta-
tion. He began to struggle fiercely and tried to get
away.
Afterwards, a friend asked, "Why did you try to get
away?"
"Because," he said, "the first thing I saw was a big,
red Shell sign, and some weird fellow was standing in
front of the letter S."
Death doesn't end all. You will spend eternity with
the Lord or in the lake of fire. Which?
Wouldn't you rather spend it with the Lord?
Then "believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be
saved you and your household."

Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Eric K. Shinseki
announced the Depart-

(VA) is taking steps to
assist Veterans seeking
compensation for Post-

"The hidden wounds
of war are being ad-

administration as we
move VA forward in its
transformation to the

Veterans through the

ki noted that online ap-
plicants will receive
their emergency pay-
ments through the mail
after processing.
"VA is adapting to
meet the financial
needs of our Veteran-
students who are on
campus," Shinseki said.
'They should be focus-
ing on their studies, not
worrying about finan-
cial difficulties."
Students without
their own transporta-
tion can also request

obtain this service, Vet-

needed if the stressor
claimed by a Veteran is
related to fear of hostile

proposed rule will be
accepted over the next
60 days. A final regula-
tion will be published
after consideration of all
comments received.
Under the new rule,
VA would not require
corroboration of a stres-

Veteran's symptoms are

This rule would simpli-
fy the development that
is required for these cas-

PTSD is a recognized
anxiety disorder that
can follow seeing or ex-
periencing an event that
involves actual or
threatened death or seri-
ous injury to which a
person responds with
intense fear, helpless-
ness or horror, and is
not uncommon in war.
Feelings of fear, confu-
sion or anger often sub-
side, but if the feelings
don't go away or get
worse, a Veteran may
have PTSD.
VA is bolstering its
mental health capacity
to serve combat Veter-
ans, adding thousands
of new professionals to
its rolls in the last four
years. The Department
also has established a

based upon their likely

Lafayette FFA Holds Annual



Kick-Off Party and Cake Auction


The Lafayette FFA Chapters hosted its annual
Kick-Off Party and Cake Auction Tuesday, Septem-
ber 29, 2009 at the Lafayette High School Cafeteria.
The event serves the chapter in many ways. First, it
is looked upon as the beginning point for the 2009-
2010 school year. Second, it allows the chapters
members and their families, alumni, administration,
and supporters to come together for good fellow-
ship. Finally, it serves as one of the two major
fundraisers that the chapter uses to raise money.
The evening began with all attendees enjoying Mr.
Cerasois famous chicken and rice followed by a
slide show highlighting the chapter events of the
past three months and an introduction of the 2009-
2010 officer teams. Karley Barrington honored
America with the singing of the National Anthem.
The officers then performed the opening ceremonies.
After a few brief remarks by senior chapter president
Courtney Reinbott, Mr. Charles Driver took the stage
to auction off thirteen cakes. All thirteen cakes were
sold and in between the selling of the cakes, numer-
ous door prizes were given out. The chapter also
heard alumni remarks from Mr. Ceraso and remarks
from Austin Courson, the 2009-2010 Florida FFA
State Secretary-At-Large.
The chapter would like to thank the following
ladies for baking our cakes and the buyers who pur-
chased them:

The chapter also received a financial donation
from First Federal Savings Bank and Mr. and Mrs.
Scott Sadler. The chapter grossed $4775 from the
cake sales and local donations. This money will be
used to send FFA members to leadership confer-
ences, pay registration fees for state and national
convention, purchase food for all FFA activities, pur-
chase livestock feed and supplies for chapter fair an-
imals, assist in travel expenses for career develop-
ment events (contests), scholarships for dues, jack-
ets, and any other item for those FFA members who
need financial assistance, and countless other mis-
cellaneous items.
The evening concluded with the announcement of
the 2009-2010 Junior and Senior chapter Sweetheart
and King. Katie Sullivan was named Senior Chapter
Sweetheart and Darby Guyton was named Junior
Chapter Sweetheart. Tyler Chancy was named Se-
nior Chapter King and Jacob Henderson was named
Junior Chapter King. The four honored FFA mem-
bers will represent the FFA chapter in the Pioneer

October is E
What can homeowners nationwide do to help
lower heating and cooling costs in their homes? Ac-
cording to Christopher Burk, product manager with
Simonton Windows@, they should look at replacing
old, drafty windows with new, energy-efficient
vinyl windows.
"With October being national Energy Awareness
Month it's the ideal time to focus on how much en-
ergy savings you can gain by replacing worn out
windows," says Burk. "Just like roofing and siding
on your home, windows need replacing about
every 20 years. The good news is that homeowners
can gain immediate savings on their energy bills
from the day the new replacement windows are in-
stalled. And, the even better news is that homeown-
ers can receive up to $1,500 in federal tax credits
when replacing their windows in 2009 and 2010."*
Burk further explains that Energy Tax Credit
(ETC) glass packages in energy-efficient windows
offered by Simonton are guaranteed to meet the
U.S. government requirements for the tax credit.
"These energy-efficient windows have at least a U-
factor rating of 0.30 or less, along with a Solar Heat
Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.30 or less to qualify
them for the federal tax credit," says Burk.
Savings You Can See
According to the U.S. Department of Energy
(DOE), the typical home loses more than 25 percent
of its heat through windows. The DOE also reports
that vinyl windows have moderate to high R-val-
ues, a measure of both the construction of the win-
dow and the materials used versus heat flow. That
translates into reduced heat loss from the home and
more thermal efficiencies of the window that can
help save valuable energy. Burk points out that EN-
ERGY STAR@ labeled products used throughout
the home can help cut energy bills up to 30 percent.
"The Low E glass in our ENERGY STAR quali-


energy AwarE
fied windows acts like an invisible shield to keep
heated or cooled air inside the home and block dan-
gerous ultraviolet rays from penetrating the house,"
says Burk. "It's not just about the glass though. Fu-
sion welded frames and sash, multi-chambered pro-
files and Energy Tax Credit (ETC) glass packages
complete the window package. The result is an ex-
traordinarily solid vinyl window that helps save
money by reducing energy bills and noise infiltra-
tion levels in the home."
Yearly Window Check-up
According to Burk, it's important to evaluate the
effectiveness of windows in the home on a yearly
basis. "Older windows can lose their efficiency,"
says Burk. "They can actually suck the life and en-
ergy out of a home causing heating and cooling
bills to soar."
One of the most important tips Burk has for
homeowners considering replacement windows is
to do their homework. "People invest a great deal
of money in the window package for their home,"
says Burk. "They should also invest time to research
the reputation of the manufacturer, the product
they're purchasing and the comprehensiveness of
the warranty offered. Price is important, but it's not
the most important thing when selecting windows."
Testing Your Windows
To determine if your current windows are energy
efficient, Simonton recommends following several
easy do-it-yourself steps, including:
o Look for condensation inside the glass on
double- or triple-glazed windows. This could indi-
cate seal failure. If this is the case, you might need
to replace the glass or the entire window.
o Examine your windows and check for hot
and cold spots or drafty areas inside your home
near your windows.
o Check to see if there are any "burnt out" ar-


ness Month
eas on your carpets and furnishings where harmful
ultraviolet rays have damaged the interior of your
home. This is an indication that windows need to
be replaced.

SLafayette's first female deputy, Jacqueline
Happy to be here 'Happy' Tysall, is right where she wants to be


Continued From Page 1A

and Santa Fe Communi-
ty College in 2004, Tysall
worked for the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
later for the DOA's spe-
cial operations team un-
til shortly after receiving
her Bachelor of Arts de-
gree in Public Adminis-
tration earlier this year
from Barry University.
In July, Tysall decided to
apply for a job as a


School Resource Officer
with the Lafayette Sher-
iff's Department and
was quickly hired, be-
coming Lafayette's first
female deputy.
"Deputy Tysall's hir-
ing and selection for
SRO was based on a de-
sire to serve the citizens
of her community, moti-
vation, as well as dedi-
cation to her career as a
sworn law enforcement
officer," said Lafayette


Sheriff Brian Lamb.
"She brings a wealth of
knowledge and skills to
the Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office and the
position of School Re-
source Officer. Deputy
Tysall's training and ex-
perience as a Military
Police Officer and com-
bat veteran has given
her the skills, maturity,
resolve, and fortitude
that is essential to a law
enforcement officer."

As a School Resource
Officer, Tysall said she is
in a position to have a
positive influence over
youth. "I have the op-
portunity to introduce
youth to skills that will
help them find a suc-
cessful path in life," said
Tysall.
It is the walls troubled
teens build around
themselves that Tysall
tries to break down.
Through mentoring,
Tysall said she is able to
break those walls down
and help teenagers
reach their potential.


For example, by speak-
ing one on one to a bul-
ly or a habitual fighter
and find out why they
are having difficulty
getting along with other
students, she is able to
get straight to the heart
of the problem, said
Tysall. "I can help pre-
vent them from making
bad decisions in life,"
she said.
"Since her hiring,
Deputy Tysall has
quickly become a valu-
able asset to the
Lafayette County Sher-
iff's Office by demon-


strating the level of pro-
fessionalism required
for her position and
dedication to the care
and safety of the chil-
dren of our communi-
ty," said Lamb.
Tysall wants to learn
as much as she can and
hopes for a long career
in law enforcement.
And as far as being the
only female deputy
with the Lafayette
County Sheriff's De-
partment, she says, "I
don't really notice it. It
doesn't matter to me. I
just feel like a deputy."
