Heart Healthy Eating
During National Heart Month, the American Heart Associa-
tion reminds us that healthy foods habits can help reduce three
of the major risk factors for heart attack high blood choles-
terol, high blood pressure and excess body Weight. They'll also
help reduce \our risk of stroke because heart disease and high
blood pressure are major risk factors for stroke.
SThe American Heart Association suggests an eating plan to
help 'you achieve and maintain a healthy eating pattern.
.** Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Choose 5 or more
servings each day. Think color, the more variety of color, the
wider the range of nutrients and antioxidants which are very
beneficial to your health.
: Eat a variety of grain products. including whole grains.
Choose 6 or more ser' ings per day.
** Include fat-free and lo -fat milk products 2-3 times each
** Eat fish, legumes (beans) skinless poultry and lean meats
** Choose fats with 2 grams, or less saturated fat.per serv-
ing, such as liquid and tub margarines, canola oil and olive oil.
Balance the number of calories you eat with the number
you use each day.
** Maintain a level of physical activity that keeps you fit
and matches the number of calories you eat. Walk or do other
activities for at least 30 minutes on most days. To lose weight,
do enough activity to use up more calories than you eat every
** Limit your intake of foods high in calories including
foods like soft drinks and candy that are high in sugar.
** Limit your intake of salt per day.
These guidelines will not only improve your heart health, but
reduce your risk for other chronic health 'problems like diabetes,

AROUND THE TOWN |
By Thelma Thompson
Good morning! Isn't
the weather lovely? Must
be trying to fool us into
thinking spring is here.
Well, it almost is.
Today we saw a red-
headed woodpecker cavort-
ing among the branches of
the huge old oak tree and
recently our yard was filled
with beautiful robins sur-
rounded by another host of
tiny wrens. Later a swarm
of blackbirds took over.
Following our little
rain, the Japanese Magno-
lia's buds greeted us with
beautiful smiles as the little
buds opened wide. And the
white blossoms of the
Camellia really stood out
against the shiny dark green
of its leaves. Two bright
spots in a drab winter yard.
Featured in this column
is the second of the town's
new businesses, Harmon's
Affordable Tree Service.
Steve Harmon, a local man
who was .born and bred in
the Lee community bought
the shop and tree service
equipment from Doug Mc-
Nicol, local realtor and
town council president.
Steve said he liked the
location, saw the opportuni-
ty to stay busy doing some-
thing he likes and people
need. He said he loves Lee
and its people and appreci-
ates his customers who are
keeping him busy. Lee is
growing, he says, and many
of them are people who
have recently moved here.
Steve's business if fully
licensed and insured, and
consists not only of tree re-
.mo \al but stump grinding,
3log splitting and chipping.
"F'e also has the ability"' to
cut trees close to houses.
He is looking forward to
servicing all his customers
in a professional manner
but with affordable prices.
Howell said. "We can't keep an eye on them 24/7."
Howell said that he didn't want the liability if anything
should happen to any of the daycare students.
When Board Chairman Bart Alford said that he would en-
tertain a motion on the matter, the board was silent. Finally.
Board Member Kenny Hall spoke, telling Parrish, "I'm going to
have to make this motion. I want to work with you. I want you
to be able to get a daycare, but those buildings are not up to
Hall said that, with the expenses associated with repairing
the buildings where they are, it would be less expensive to move
the portables to another location. He moved to reject Parrish's
Another moment of silence came before Board Member
Susie Williamson seconded the motion.
When the vote was taken, the motion carried 5-0 .
in during the illness of Harriett Read, former administrative as-
sistant to the county commission. He couldn't remember how
the setup had worked, though.
The board agreed to come back and discuss the issue at the
next meeting, agreeing that Hemanes' extra pay, onceit is re-
ceived, will be retroactive to the first of January, when she be-
gan fulfilling many of Arnold's duties.
We found Steve Har-
mon to be warm, friendly
and sincere. And, like a
good neighbor, he invites
you to stop by for a visit -
he always has time for you.
Or call, his number is 971-
We would certainly like
to have that huge slab from
an oak tree that he cut just
to sit on in the backyard.
The Town of Lee has fi-
nally received its new
truck, a 2005 white Chevro-
let which replaces the old
official car and Mike Regis-
ter looks 6 inches taller be-
hind the wheel! We're all
proud of it, Mike.
The oak and pine trees
are being planted in' Ben
Blair Park thanks to an ur-
ban and community forestry
grant and the as-istance of
Suwannee River Water
Management. This park,
with its soccer field, !con-
cession stand, nature trails,
picnic table and benches
and playground equipment
will soon be open and will
be another asset to our Lee
Baseball season in Lee
apparently ended Tuesday
evening with a game' at
town hall between a Corinth
Church team and one from.
Jasper. No news on which
team won at this time.
And football season
came to an explosive end
in a brilliant atmosphere -
lighted bridges; parade of
lights as boats and yachts
cruised the St. Johns;
brightly lit cruise ships;
three nights of beautiful
fireworks; a mini Mardi
gras !lighting !up. moa.t of
'Riverside Axenue' and all
of Bay Street; with Jack-
sonville Landing cele-
brants picked like canned
sardines and with luminous
stars from all areas of en-
tertainment, sports, and
business holding or guest-
ing at parties all over town
and beyond, examples,

So Jacksonville proved
all of the pundits wrong -
most of them had run the
city down badly, saying it
would fall on its little face.
But the little city proved
them wrong, took its place
at bat and hit one of the
longest home runs in histo-
ry. Now she can run with
the big dogs. We lived
there for many years and
knew she could.
Our daughter Vicki told
us the'following a friend
asked her -"' hat is the cap-
ital of New England?" She
replied, "You're joking,
right?" and he said "Oh, I
knew I shouldn't have
asked you" then turned to
another man and asked
him. The other man said,
"Oh, I don't know, maybe
Boston or is it Massachu-
setts. Is Boston in Massa-
chusetts or the other way
around." The man who
asked the question said his
son had come home from

The Madison 'County Solid Waste Department has placed a
new compactor system in the Cherry Lake Collection Center.
This compactor system will take the place of 15 greenboxes
presently being used for the disposal of household garbage.
This system is more efficient than past methods and allows us
to keep up with the ever increasing demand of solid waste
disposal needs in our growing County. Beginning on
February 28th, 2005 the Cherry Lake Collection Center will
be operating under a new time schedule which is as follows:

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
*All vehicles are priced at the "Loan
Value", which is the price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.
Managers -Spec a...
"1 of a Kind"
-- -- 288.0mo
*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the
lot, NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES PEOPLE.
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll get you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.
We sell all of our cars at
loan value so you don't
need a down payment!

Day By Day Celebration
"THERE IS PURPOSE IN THE VALLEY"
"Yes, though I walk through the (deep, sunless) valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with
me; Your rod (to protect) and Your staff (to guide), they com-
fort me; ..... and His presence shall be my dwelling place."
Psalm 23:4 and 6 (Amplified Bible)
Once we enter into the family of God, it should be our ex-
pectation that satan will attack. As children of God, we do not,
fight the enemy to win, because we know that Christ Jesus has
already won the victory for us; and we are to operate from a po-
sition of VICTORY!! The Word of God assures us in Psalm
23 that WE WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY ... and it is
only a (shadow) of death. We are not to take up residence in
the valley. Our journey is a walk through the valley, and
though it may appear dark, dreary or even deadly, this same
scripture assures us that it is "a shadow," and a shadow cannot
cause us harm. Just like satan, a shadow can "only appear to
be." Neither has power in or over our lives except we give ours
Yes, we will have valley experiences, but because of who
we are and whose we are, the valley experiences should be
characterized by resting in the Lord. There is absolutely noth-
ing that happens in our life that catches God by surprise or that
He has not allowed. Therefore, we must always find peace in
knowing that all things are working together for our good, be-
cause we love God and are called according to His purpose.
Our valley experiences should not be accompanied by (mum-
bling, grumbling, and complaining). Our relationship with the
Father should allow us to rest and find peace in whatever is
happening in our lives so that God can get the glory. He gets
no glory when our faith in Him wavers or fails to operate.
THE WORD OF GOD SAYS: our name is carved in the
hand of the Saviour; He has made perfect all things that relate
to you and me. He knows all the hairs that are on our head;
when we live to please Him, He gives us the desires of our
heart; no weapon formed against us will accomplish what it
was designed to do; He promises never to leave us; He is our
Fortress, Strength, and Strong Tower; satan was rendered pow-
erless when he was kicked out of heaven; WE ARE OVER-
COMERS AND VICTORIOUS!! We are the righteousness of
God and our strength is in Him.
Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. We
can rest in the assurance and ultimate confidence of God that no
matter what the valley experience we may presently be going

"Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so."
0, the truth of it! What is truth? What do you think
Truth is? Hosea 4:1, "Hear the word of the Lord...for the
Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land be-
cause there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in
the land." Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the
Light." In night church, Danielle Fries sang "Before I
Know Your Name."
Geoff Hill announced to us that Mr. J.T. Walker would
be 90 on the 14th and we all wished him a, great day then
and in the days till July when Mrs. Walker and he will cel-
ebrate 65 years together. May the Lord continue to bless
them and all their family. What blessings they've been in
education and in Church and in all things.
What a huge arrangement of beautiful flowers Sunday
in Honor of the Glory of God and in celebration of the 60th
Anniversary of Carl and Eddie Bevis by Betty, Jim, Jimmy,
Jennifer, Richard, Charlene, and Stu, Anne, 'Paul and Rob!
All were present plus niece Jenny Andrews, sister Edith
Davis and Juanita Ragans. How they have been blessed
with healing and love and life and are such a blessing and
very active in Church always showing God's love and grace
and mercy and we will continue praying for them and their

Stark heart-wrenching sight to see the 8 rows of 10
crosses at Church of God equaling 80,000 abortions in
Florida in 2004! How sad! How tragic since God knows us
all by name.
Prayers for continued healing for all in need: Pat Milli-
nor, covering a bad fall (saw him at Dr. Forsthoefel's Mon-
through that God is in control, and
is orchestrating EVERYTHING for our good. Therefore, it
does not matter what the valley or wilderness experience may
be (emotional, spiritual, financial, death, marriage). We can
rest and have peace beyond understanding, knowing that Father
God has promised never to leave or forsake us; He has
promised that our latter days will be greater than our first; and
the best is yet to come. God cannot lie!! These are promises
with tremendous power.
We need to always be reminded that satan's greatest satis-
faction does not come from the fact that we are having valley
experiences. His satisfaction comes when we are in the valley
and take our eyes off of Jesus. Satan knows that once our eyes
are off of Jesus, we fall prey to his tactics, and he is then able
to steal the Word of God from our hearts, and we ultimately
will lose our joy, peace, and strength. Satan's job is to convince
us that God doesn't love us, has deserted us, and that (God) will
not keep the promises that He has given us in His Word. How-
ever, as children of the Most High God, we must draw a line in
the proverbial sand, plant our feet on the Solid Rock (the Word
of God), and say with all authority based on the Word of God,
that "I believe ALL that the Word of God says, and I will stand
...... and when the valley appears dark, dreary, and even dead-,
ly, I.will continue to stand." Greater is He that is standing with
me in the valley than those that are against me!!
Don't let a powerless enemy defeat you!! We are victori-
ous when our spirit man can hold onto who we are in Christ Je-
sus. The valley experience then becomes a place of spiritual'
growth. Growth that comes from knowing that our greatest
strength is not of ourselves, but from the Father, who lives in
us;.these experiences allow God to become more personal and
intimate in our lives; during these valley experiences, we find
ourselves on our face before an Almighty God realizing that He
is our ultimate Source and Resource in every facet of our lives.
Valley experiences will come. They must be recognized as
a time that God has allowed for learning, purpose and growth.
When we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit, we will
walk through each valley. Let us not refuse or resist the walk
or the valley. The going through and coming out victorious is
not difficult, when we remember Who is keeping us company
and providing protection in the valley.

What a testimony Steve Bass had as he thanked the

church. Debbie told us "God is so good, God is so good, as
she was being taken to E.R. Then she remembered she'd
sung it last Sunday in solo.

Christian Coalition Supports Families
For centuries in our world marriage has been commonly un-
derstood as a relationship between a man and a woman. Specif-
ically in the United States, marriage has historically been a
monogamous relationship between a man and a woman. "Mar-
riage in this state is a common good, not a special interest," says
Christian Coalition of Florida's Executive Director, Bill
Stephens. "This is why we are supporting an Amendment to
the Florida Constitution to preserve marriage between a man
and a woman."
Every society needs natural marriage (as many men as pos-
sible each finding a woman, caring for and committing himself
exclusively to her) working together to create and raise the next
generation. "No society needs homosexual coupling. In fact,
too much of it would be harmful to society and that is why nat-
ural marriage and same-sex coupling cannot be considered so-
cially equal," says Stephens.
"Furthermore, same-sex coupling celebrates gender same-
ness and denies children the gender diversity of their mother and
father," Stephens adds. "A loving and compassionate society
never intentionally creates motherless and fatherless families,
which is exactly what every same-sex home does."

Meanwhile, during the
month of January, movement of
the Federal fleet had been noted
by the Confederate forces, and
they began to prepare for an of-
fensive. The defense of Florida
was placed in the' hands of
Brigadier General Joseph Fine-
gan and Brigadier General Alfred
Colquitt. Once it was apparent
the Union forces were moving
westward in Florida, Finegan be-
gan searching for the Confederate
army's best defendable position.
Finegan found that position
at Olustee. With a lake called
Ocean Pond on his left, a nearly.
impassable swamp on his right
and only a narrow passage be-
tween, he called for troops to help
defend Florida. Colquitt an-
swered that call, bringing veteran
troops from Savannah, Georgia.

Union force of 5,500 men and 16
cannon marched westward from
Macclenny. By this time, the
Confederate forces almost
equaled the Union opposing
army in number. Finegan sent
skirmishers to draw the Union
forces to Olustee, and they made
contact that afternoon. The Con-
federate line was formed. The in-
fantry in the center was supported
,by cavalry on each flank.
The battle was joined on the
floor of a forest of virgin pines,
free of underbrush. Men fought
in the open forest with neither
force constructing earthworks.
The battle raged until dark, when
the Union forces began a hasty
Battle casualties amounted
to 1,861 Union and 946 Confed-
erate soldiers. In proportion to the
number of troops involved, it was
one of the bloodiest battles of the
Union forces remained in
Jacksonville until the end of the
war and occupied several coastal
towns and various places along
the St. Johns River. They carried
out frequent operations against
Confederate forces defending
east Florida but did not venture
out in significant force again.
The 1899 Florida legislature
created a commission to select a
site and to raise funds for a suit-
able monument to commemorate
the battle. The site was acquired
by the state of Florida in 1909.
The monument was built in 1912
and dedicated in 1913, just 49
years after the battle.
The interpret% e center offers
exhibits that interpret this Con-
federate victory. It is open Thurs-
day through Monday from 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m., free of charge. The
battlefield is marked by a trail and
signs along the, battle lines.
The battle itself is reenacted
each February on the, weekend
preceding President's Day.

Increased Wildfire Threat
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson to-
day announced an elevated
wildfire threat in Florida
forests damaged by the 2004
"From Naples to Pen-
sacola, many once-scenic
stands of trees are now tan-
gled masses of trunks and
limbs," Bronson said. "This
additional debris will make
wildfires more difficult to
control and more dangerous
for our firefighters."
Many trees damaged by
high winds or inundated by
heavy rains are expected to
die from insect and disease in-
festations over the next two
years. This scenario, com-
bined with tinder-dry grasses
and frost-damaged brush,
means conditions in Florida
are conducive to an active
wildfire season. Bronson is
urging people who visit parks
or forests to be especially
careful with lighted materials,
such as cigarettes.
In addition, smoke from
wildfires can contribute to re-
duced visibility on the high-
"The best decision is to
not drive in poor visibility,"
Bronson said. "But, if smoke
or fog is encountered on the
highway, motorists should
slow down, turn on the low-
beam headlights and remain
When visibility deterio-
rates to the point that contin-
ued travel is unsafe, motorists
are advised to pull all the way
off of the roadway and turn on
their emergency flashers until
the smoke subsides.
Bronson is also remind-
ing people to be very careful
when burning yard trash out-
doors. Outdoor burning to re-
duce yard trash and household
paper products is allowed in
most Florida counties (day-
light hours only) provided the
fire is enclosed in a noncom-
bustible container or excavat-
ed pit and covered by a metal
mesh or grill. The fire must
be located away from any oc-
cupied buildings and any
nearby woodlands and must
be attended at all times.
Residents are urged to.
contact their local Division of
Forestry office to find out if
weather conditions make out-
door burning unsafe.
Wildfires can occur
throughout the year in Flori-
da, but the most active part of
the wildfire season is usually
from January through May.
Florida averages about 5,000
wildfires each year. Since
January 1, Florida has experi-
enced 191 wildfires that
burned 1,547 acres. Many of
those fires were the result of
escaped outdoor yard trash

Michael Jackson Hospitalized;
Jury Selection Delayed
Superstar Michael Jackson was rushed to the emergency
,om of a local hospital Tuesday and admitted for the flu, de-
vying jury selection another week in his child molestation tri-
Judge Rodney Melville told prospective jurors that Jackson
'as taken to a local hospital on his way to court. He later told
iem Jackson was to be admitted for a "very serious" case of
-ie flu, and jury selection would be delayed until next Tuesday,
Jackson was admitted to Marian Medical Center in Santa
Aaria, and the hospital held a brief press conference there
"Mr. Jackson is being evaluated for a flu-like illness with
-ome vomiting," said hospital emergency-room physician
huck Merrill. "He's in stable condition."
Merrill said he'd undergone some testing, was being kept
hydrated with intravenous fluids and would be released "when
i;;e is well enough to go home."
The tedious process of choosing a panel of 12 jurors and
?ight alternates from more than 200 prospects had already been
delayed for a week and resumed Monday.
mi was said to have
from stress in
court on Monday.
3 s- -- a e would need three
or four days to re-
cover. He also
SN de1 noted that several
.. members of the
jury pool were
also out with the flu and that it appeared to be going around.
On Monday, questioning of jurors got under way, and Jack-
son's lawyers announced they may call Elizabeth Taylor, Jay
Leno, Quincy Jones and Kobe Bryant to the witness stand.
Names of defense and prosecution witnesses were revealed
to prospective jurors Monday so attorneys could find out if any
of the more than 240 members of the pool had associations that
may be important in jury selection.
Defense attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr. also named two of
Jackson's children, Paris and Prince Michael. Possible prose-
cution witnesses included Debbie Rowe, their mother.
Prosecutors also listed the family of a boy involved in 1993
molestation allegations against Jackson. The judge has not yet
ruled whether that incident can be mentioned in the trial. The
accuser received a multimillion-dollar settlement and no crim-
inal charges were filed.
Both sides listed former Jackson attorney Mark Geragos,
and the defense list included Jackson's chief prosecutor, Dis-
trict Attorney Tom Sneddon.
Movie actor Corey Feldman, 33, was subpoenaed by the pros-
ecution last week to testify in the case.
The "Stand By Me" and "Goonies" star also did a new in-
terN iew oi "20/2" \\ ith 'MNlrtirhn Ba&hir [he sa&6-ABC'j'odir-"
nalist behind the 2003 documentary "Lix ing With Michael
, Jackon'" that caused such a stir because it depicts Jackson and
his accuser holding hands and the singer defending his practice
of sharing his bed with children.
In the new interview, Feldman whom Jackson befriended
in his 30s when the actor was a rising teen star said that while
Jackson never touched him inappropriately, he did show him
nude photographs in a book once when he went to his house at
age 13 or 14. Feldman defended the singer in 1993 when the
first child molestation case was brought against him, also by
Feldman told Bashir he didn't consider the nude pictures "a

big deal," but became concerned because of the current mo-
lestation charges against Jackson.

World Champion Wrestler

Meredith Ann Whitney, a Fox News stock analyst, and
John Charles Layfield, a professional wrestler, were married
Saturday evening at the Wyndham Casa Marina in Key West,

marriage ended in divorce.
She is a daughter of Barbara Gentry of Key West and

The bridegroom's father and mother, Mary Layfield, live in

seated next to each other at dinner afterward. Mr. Layfield had
just published "Have More Money Now: A Common Sense Ap1
proach to Financial Management" (Simon & Schuster).
A week after their initial meeting, the couple went out.
They enjoyed talking so much they lingered over dinner for

field said. "Meredith came along at a time in my life when I re-

Defense Opens Case
In Blake Murder Trial
The defense opened its case in the Robert Blake murder tri-
al Tuesday without giving any indication the 71-year-old actor
Blake is charged with fatally shooting his wife in 2001 af-
ter allegedly failing to persuade three acquaintances to commit
the crime for him.
Blake's wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, was killed as she sat in
'the couple's car outside a San Fernando Valley restaurant.
There were no eyewitnesses to the shooting; however pros-
ecutors contend Blake hated Bakley and tried to have her
The defense has argued Bakley had plenty of enemies of
her own. Blake's maid testified Tuesday she had seen a strange
man in an old car possibly casing the Blake home the night, be-
fore the murder.
The Los Angeles Times said the defense expected to call 30-
40 witnesses over two weeks.
