Failed escape
These brangus cattle attempted the great escape Thurs-
day evening when they got through the pasture fence
and headed toward Highway 441 north of town. Their
escape was foiled by passing motorists who blocked
them from the highway with their vehicles and then herd-
ed them back through the damaged fence. Help arrived
and the fence was mended as the escapees watched
their path to freedom dissolve in strands of barbed wire.

Florida man on lam
found inside of TV
BAINBRIDGE, Ga. A 6-foot
man allegedly on the run from
Florida authorities since Sep-
tember was found this week
curled up inside of a television.
After receiving a tip that
Alfred Blane, 45, of Ponce de
Leon, Fla., might be in Decatur
County, police went Friday to a
mobile home near Bainbridge
College, where a woman told
police he was hiding under a 1
mattress inside.
Lending the department's
police dog, Thomasville officers
accompanied the Florida
authorities inside the residence.
The officers searched the house
thoroughly, even checking a
freezer and washing machine,
said Lt. Tim Watkins of the
Thomas County Sheriff's
Department.
Meanwhile, the dog kept
poking around a television, an
older floor model, Watkins said. |
When officers unscrewed the
back of the television, they
found a balled-up Blane inside,
he said, adding that Blane is
between 5-foot-,10 and 6-feet
tall.
Blane escaped in handcuffs
from two sheriff's deputies in
September as they tried to place
him in the back of a police car,
said Capt. Stan Sunday of the
Walton County Sheriff's Office
in Florida.
After being arrested again,
Blane was placed in the Walton
County Jail on Friday and faces
numerous charges, including
burglary, possession of
methamphetamine, battery on a
law enforcement officer and
escape.

Employers looking for short and simple resumes


By Bonnie
Roberts Erickson
An employer sits down to
begin the painstaking chore of
sifting through dozens of
resumes for that one coveted
position in the company. Page
lengths vary, and type sizes and
styles take off in several direc-
tions. The employer's time is
valuable. They want to know
educational and previous
employment information and
skills.
Don Samson, a professor of
English at Radford University,
says it is important to focus on
content: there is no substitute for
relevant education and experi-
ence. A common mistake, Sam-
son says, is to dress up the


appearance of the resume in an
effort to offset insufficient educa-
tional and work experience.
The most common mistakes
in resumes include using uncom-
mon type styles and fonts, inflat-
ing previous work experience,
lacking enough detail to fill a
page and assuming that submit-
ting a resume is enough to pique
the interest of the company.
Research the company before
submitting your resume and
refrain from telling the employer
what they already know about
themselves, Samson says. "Show
that you've done research. Talk
about how you are prepared
through your education and
experience to do what the com-
pany needs someone to do."


Remembering even the sim-
plest methods of presentation
can make a huge impact on a
resume screener. For example,
professionals in the field of print-
ing and publishing suggest never
folding a laser-printed sheet on a
line of text. The ink is likely to
flake or smear, giving the appear-
ance of a hastily done resume. If
the resume has been printed on
a press, let the ink dry before
folding and mailing.
The following are additional
tips for effective resumes.
Use Times New Roman 12
point type and print the resume
on 20# bond paper. The resume
needs to convey a professional
image.
Don't revise your resume

Fire Calls


for different positions within the
same field. Samson says, "Your
resume describes you, and you
don't change you to fit a particu-
lar job that you are interested in."
Samson also advises submitting
a letter of application that shows
how the candidate could meet
specific requirements and duties.
"Tailor your letter of application
to the position, not your
resume," he says.
Age, height, weight, health,
marital status, nationality and
race should not be included.
Describe education and
work experience in reverse


chronological order. Samson
says, "What you have done
most recently is most impor-
tant." Describe educational
background first if the applicant
is completing a degree that qual-
ifies them for the job.
Use action verbs. Say "test-
ed" instead "responsible for test-
ing."
Be simple and straightfor-
ward. If you served food, say
you served food.
Career objectives should
only be included if they would
really help. "If you state a career
objective broad enough for


most positions you apply for, it
will be too general." Samson
says. "Most experts recommend
using an objective only if you are
looking for work in a different
field from your present one."
Most importantly, proofread
and proofread again. Typo-
graphical and grammatical
errors do a lot of damage. Sam-
son stresses, "Make no mis-
takes. You want to suggest that
you can do an important job
well." Before submitting the
resume and letter of application,
ask an experienced proofreader
to review them.'

Animal Abuse
"I am reading in Friday's paper about the animal abuse on
the reservation. I live on the reservation and have plenty of ani-
mals, and we take care of ours. I agree there are some animals
but it is a lost cause. Give up, they are never-going to take care
of their animals they all run around there like that. Nobody
knows how to do anything. The animal control comes out and
the people put their animals in the pen. But, they let them out as
soon as animal control leaves so the dogs are free to run
around."

Start your
I know that many of you are not
only golf enthusiasts, but are also
NASCAR fans. We are fortunate to
have many great races just a "chip-
shot" away. Any NASCAR fan
knows that the second weekend of
February is the time for your winter
pilgrimage to Daytona Beach. You
won't be alone as more than
200,000 speed buffs will join you at
the sacred NASCAR oval altar. They
descend upon Daytona and its
environs to watch racing's top
guns fire on all cylinders during the
Daytona 500. If you are like me,
your golf clubs are in the trunk, so
why not take a break from the drive
to Daytona and sneak in 18?
One of the most popular places
to scratch the golf itch near Day-
tona is at Victoria Hills Golf Club -
the centerpiece of the master-
planned Victoria Park community
in nearby DeLand developed by St.
Joe.
Area resident and PGA Tour star
Chris DiMarco, who holds the
course record of 65 at Victoria Hills,
said shortly after the course
opened in 2002 that the putting sur-
faces are as good as those he
encounters at many PGA Tour
sites.
DiMarco isn't alone in bestow-
ing high praise upon Victoria Hills.
"Travel + Leisure Golf" magazine
recently rated 'Vitoria Hills as the
second-best.new course built since
2000 in the nation's most prolific
golfing state.
My old friend, Florida resident
Ron Garl designed Victoria Hills. It
is set amid a stunning canopy of

live oak bosques, tall pines, and
pristine lakes. Victoria Hills' topsy-
turvy terrain sports over 80 feet of
elevation change. Garl's design fea-
tures use of free form waste areas
and steep face bunkers. The net
result, says Garl, is "a deft variety of
challenges that require not only a
capable swing, but a supple
mind."
Some of college golf's best
players can attest that the course
challenges. Victoria Hills hosted
the NCAA Division II Champi-
onships for men's golf last May and
is home to Stetson University's golf
team.
The course wastes little time in
introducing and reinforcing Garl's
summation. The 429-yard opening
hole sports a starkly hewn waste
area accented by a smattering of
native grasses and red lava rock
Garl imported from Hawaii. The
wavy fairway ends at an elevated
green complex guarded by a state-
ly live oak.on the right side.


Courtesy photo/ Victoria Hills Golf Club
This aerial shot of the 7th hole provides a view of the beauti-
ful live oaks and the free form bunkers.


Waste areas and random
bunkering are Garl's primary
defense against par at Victoria
Hills. However, the course is unde-
niably playable in distance and
strategy. Six par-4s play less than
375 yards from the back tees,
while only one par-5 stretches
beyond 550 yards. And each hole
presents multiple opportunities for
avoiding Garl's intimidating
bunkers.
Each hole presents golfers with
an entirely different look, sand
dunes on the par-5 sixth; a sand
bunker merging into a waste
bunker on the par-5 ninth; the faux
canyon (replete with boulders)
dug out on the par-4 11 th.
So race on over to Victoria Hills
before or after the 500, it's less than
30 minutes from Daytona Beach
and only one mile off Interstate 4.
