By Jo Ross
Emergency med-
ical service in the.
northwestern part
of Hamilton County
should improve
considerably with
the addition of a
new EMS station in
Jennings.
According to
County Coordinator
Danny Johnson,
Commissioner Ron-
nie Morgan played
the key role in the
opening of the sta-
tion. Working close-
ly with EMS Direc-
tor Edgar Lumpkin,
response time for
emergency services
provided to Zone 3
has been greatly im-
proved.
A two-person
team (generally one
medic and one
EMT) will be sta-

looking forward to reporting

been my joy to serve as a
teacher, a school level
administrator, and a dis-
trict level administrator.
I enjoyed each jpob in
which I served, and I
have never lost sight of
the fact that no matter
the job, one works "with"
children and colleagues.
I am a qualified candi-
date having received my
B.A., B.S., M.Ed., and Ed.
Specialist degrees from
Valdosta State College,
now Valdosta State Uni-
versity, Valdosta, Ga. I
have also taken graduate
level courses at Florida
State University and did
post graduate work at
Harvard University,
Cambridge, Mass.
During my career in
education, I was instru-
mental in helping estab-
lish the partnershipp"'
program, a program of
interactive learning that
exists between the Flori-
da Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection,
Division of Parks and
Recreation and South
Hamilton Elementary
School. I was also instru-
mental in helping pro-
cure the grant writer and
the Historic Preservation
Grant that helped South
receive nearly $200,000
in grant funds from the
Department of State to


restore much of the
school's exterior wood-
work and roofing. I was
instrumental in helping
establish the Full Service
School Concept at Cen-
tral Hamilton Elemen-
tary - a concept that es-
tablished after school
and summer educational
programs for a number
of students in the district,
as well as providing
counseling services and
social interactive work
for a very needy student
population. ..
While serving as prin-
cipal of Suwannee Ele-
mentary East in Live
Oak, a school with a stu-
dent population of nearly
1,500 students, I was the
first elementary principal
to lead staff members in
implementing the con-
cepts of the prestigious
Florida Reading Initiative
that is part of the North-
east Florida Educational
Consortium (NEFEC).
During my second
tenure as principal at
South Hamilton Elemen-
tary School in White
Springs, I led the stu-
dents and staff members
to the achievement level
of the school being an
"A" school two times out
of the nearly three years I
served as principal there.
Again, I worked with.
students, staff members,
and the community to


achieve this goal. For this
accomplishment, I was
recognized by the Florida
Department of Education
as an Outstanding Princi-
pal. In addition to the
grade of "A," South was
the first school in the
Hamilton County School
System to receive Ade-
quate Yearly Progress or
(AYP) as denoted by a
portion of the "No Child
Left Behind" federal leg-
islation.
While at the district
level in Hamilton Coun- .
ty, I served as Director of
Operations, late Director
of Administrative Ser-
vices. In that capacity, I
helped implement a
computerized system for
mainstreaming mainte-
nance requests and work
orders. I also wrote the
District's STAR Plan, a
plan adopted by the state
of Florida that provided
merit pay for teachers for
a year. Hamilton County
was one of the first
twelve districts in the
state of Florida, and the
only district of our size,
to be approved by the
Cabinet and the Florida
Department of Educa-
tion. At the district level I
also assisted in writing a
portion of the Hamilton
County School District's
Comprehensive Reading
Plan.
As for community ser-


vice, I was selected Citi-
zen of the Year by the
Hamilton County Cham-
ber of Commerce in 1993.
I served, as the president
of the Stephen Foster Cit-
izens Support Organiza-
tion from 1989 till 2004.
During those years, we
saw the organization
grow from a very small
group to being among
the five largest support
organizations in the state
with net assets worth
several hundred thou-
sand dollars. It was my
honor to serve as a mem-
ber of the prestigious
Florida Folklife Council
for five years. During
those years, I served on
this council appointed by
the Governor and the
Secretary of State as chair
and vice-chair. I was in-
strumental in that capaci-
ty in including a chil-
dren's area at the annual
Florida Folk Festival and
drafting a "framework"
for Folklife in Education
that was adopted as a na-
tional prototype.
I served as president
and in many other offices
on the White Springs
Historic Preservation So-
dciety and was instrumen-
tal in having a large
number of structures in
White Springs, including
the South Hamilton

found this to be true as soon as I arrived in Calgary,
but not in a way that I anticipated. I miss my lug-

still in Chicago and I was missing it dearly.. Later
the next day we were reunited and it was a joyful re-
union.
We were accompanied by several people from the
area including our friends and fellow White Springs
residents, Dennis and Dottie Price. Many of you
will remember Doug Leatherbury, his wife Peggy
Bulger and their twin girls Hannah and Meagan,
who used to live here in White Springs. Peggy was
with the Florida folklife program and she followed
her career in folklife to the top of her field. She is
now the director of the American Folklife Program
at the Library of Congress in Washington DC. Doug

and rewarding career in neonatal intensive care

We ate in the famous
Carnegie Deli with the
huge portions of foods.
Wonderful pizza and

OPINION


Black Education


"Hard Times at Douglass High," is
an HBO documentary that aired last
June. It captured much of the 2004-
2005 school year at Baltimore's pre-
dominantly black Frederick Douglass
High School. The tragedy is that what
is seen in the documentary is typical
of most predominantly black urban
schools.
Douglass' students are four to five
years below grade level. Most of its
ninth-graders read at the third-,
fourth- or fifth-grade levels. In 2006,
only 24 percent of its students tested
proficient in reading, in math just 11
percent, and that's an improvement
over previous years. Only one student
managed to score above 1,000 on the
SAT and another student scored 440
out of 1,600. You get 400 points for
just writing in your name. Out of its
1,100 students, 200 to 300 are absent
each day. Many of those who do
show up don't do so on time; they


roam the hall-
ways and leave .,..
the school during M
the day. Only
one-half of the Si.
school's 500 in-: - '
coming freshmen .'
ninth-graders re- 2
turn for their
sophomore year BY WALTE
and far fewer re-
main for graduation
Sixty-six percent of the teachers are
uncertified. Even if there were'no cer-
tified teacher shortage, I doubt
whether many teachers with attrac-
tive alternatives would want to teach
at the school. Douglass High School is
not a place for teachers with high ex-
pectations for their students. English
teacher Mr. McDermott resigned in
the middle of the school year saying,
"Teaching becomes secondary, and
discipline is the main thing that goes
on. I don't feel like I'm
making a difference

Cameras fol-
lowed then-prin-
cipal Isabelle
Grant on her visit
to the home of a
chronically absent
student. The stu-
dent who reads at
the fifth- or sixth-
grade level is
promised that if


she attends school regularly she'll be
promoted to the 11th grade. It is im-
possible to eliminate such a reading
deficit in a semester. Teachers are
pressured into passing failing stu-
dents. The documentary showed that
within a few days of graduation time
the school went from having 138 eligi-
ble graduates to 200. Promoting and
graduating students who haven't
made the grade is nothing short of
-academic fraud.
Douglass High School teachers and
.staff appeared to be concerned and
caring people, but the poor quality
educational'outcomes demonstrate

The 2007 Teen Competition Team from Dance Works came home suc-
cessful earning a second place trophy with their competition tap dance,
"Hit Me. Up "The eight member team attended the Dance Makers Inc Na-,
tional Convention & Competition in Myrtle Beach, SC, June 23 through
June 27. The girls were accompanied by teacher Shannon McCook.,
(Pnut, Submrnlile] .


that concern and caring is not '
enough. The virtually empty class-
rooms, filmed on back-to-school
night, suggested little parental inter-
est in their children's education.
School day behavior demonstrated lit-
tle student interest. Some students
spent class time laughing, joking and
tussling with one another. Others had
their heads lying on their desks or ap-
peared uninterested in the teacher's
discussion. Many of those engagedin
student-teacher exchange on academ-
ic topics showed very limited reason-
ing ability.
Frederick Douglass was founded in
1883 as the Colored High and Train-
ing School before it was renamed. It is
one of the nation's oldest historically
black high, schools. It was a draw for
Baltimore's brightest black students.
Success stories among its alumni in-
clude Thurgood Marshall, Cab Cal-
loway, as well as several judges, con-
gressmen and civil rights leaders. I
guarantee you that if Douglass High
student test scores of that earlier era
were available, they wouldn't show
today's achievement gap. Also, a
1940s or '50s Douglass High graduate
would find no comparison between
student behavior during their school
years and that shown in the docu-
mentary.
Politicians and the teaching estab-
lishment say more .money, smaller
classes and newer buildings are nec-
essary for black academic excellence.
At Frederick Douglass' founding, it
didn't have the resources available to-
day. If blacks can achieve at a time
when there was far greater poverty,
gross discrimination and fewer op-
portunities, what says blacks cannot
achieve today? Whether we want to
own up to it or not, the welfare state
has done what Jim Crow, gross dis-
crimination and poverty could not
have done. It has contributed to the
breakdown of the black family struc-
ture and has helped establish a set of
values alien to traditional values of
high moral standards, hard work and
achievement.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris

I know you are having a busy sum-
mer, why don't you share some of
your activities with us? Can you be-
lieve the teachers will be back in the
classroom shortly, then the school bus-
es will be running again, is time just
passing me by faster, or am I just get-
ting slower?
It was really a shocker to me last
week when the ladies of First Presby-
terian Church hosted the birthday par-
ty at Suwannee Valley Nursing Center.
There were three ladies being honored
for July birthdays, guess what? They
were all younger than I am. But, I am
still out and about and will be as long
as possible.
The young people from First Baptist
have been very busy this summer, all
ages, we will try to get some news
from them soon. There is certainly a
praise from First Baptist, and for the
community, Marty Wood is back at
home, and in town, he has been seen
out an about, and we rejoice with him
and his family on his progress.
Dr. Fredrick and Beverly Mickler
moved to Dowling Park several
months ago, after spending many
years in Hamilton County., serving the
community, blessing us all with their
presence as well as their knowledge
and service. We miss them and wish
them the very best, Beverly is now at
Good Samaritan Center in Dowling
Park.
As Teacher of the Year in Hamilton
County, Penny Mickler and her hus-
band, Bill, attended the festivities re-
cently honoring those in the education
field who have achieved this honor.
They report a wonderful time, we hoe
to have more information on this in the
near future. We are proud of you, Pen-
ny, and know you represented our
county well.
Judy Williams, with Meridian
Health Care, was the guest of the
Youth Group of First Presbyterian'
Church on Tuesday evening at the
Church. Nan Hamm is director of the
youth group and we will be hearing


2008 term. Classes be-
gin Monday, Aug. 11.
The PCT program is a


cuse for not voting more from them
in the near future.
Theoo critical, but political

tion to take down the signs are reallyxpect
appearing every-
where, you will
not have any ex-
cuse for not voting, hope you will,
think I am not being too critical, but do
go out and be as helpful after the elec-
tion to take down the signs. We expect
to see them and are ok with their being
out ahead of time, but it does help if
they are removed after the election is
over.
I would love to hear from someone
in regard to reunions that are being
held, there have been family reunions
that should be reported, also class re-
unions, some have been but others
have not. Some day you might like to
look back and see pictures, etc. I am
busy clearing out some things, but it is
very special to recall some of the spe-
cial occasions. As I recalled one class
reunion, my 50th, I was asked to be ,
master of ceremonies (that was 14
years ago in case you are counting)
and I disappeared for a few minutes
someone asked Wade where I was and
he replied he knew I was somewhere
praying. Also; at this one, you may
have heard this, we used to have class
prophesies (do you do that any more)
and mine was that I would be editor of
a New York newspaper, 50 years later
I told the class I did better than that, I
was editor of the Jasper News. I really
felt that way (still do). I have seen
many come and go, many changes, but
it is still dear to my heart. As far as I am
concerned, TV or anything else, will
never take the place of sitting down
and reading the newspaper, remember
the days we could sit at the breakfast
table and drink coffee and discuss the
news over the morning paper.
A telephone call from JoAnn Young
told me that she has a brother living in
Moncks Comer, S. C., I already knew
of Elbert Hughes' sister, and also
Glenn Miller's brother is fire chief
there. It really is a small world, I look
forward to trying to talk with these
folks when we go to the family reunion
next year.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Bembry announces candidacy


Continued From Page 1A

Democrat, stated "I am
running to make a differ-
ence in the lives of the
people in District 10. I
believe with all my heart
that the seat reserved in
the Florida House for the
Representative form Dis-
trict 10 belongs to the
people of District 10."
Bembry was born on a
tobacco farm in Hamil-
ton County where the
values of hard work, per-
severance and a deep re-
spect for the environ-
ment were instilled in
him at a very early age.
Those lifetime values
have served him well as
he faced great personal
and financial hardship
during the great drought
of 1977 and when he suc-
cessfully fought against
the siting of an environ-
mentally dangerous coal.
plant planned for his
community. Today,
Leonard is still farming
both his farm and his
family's fourth genera-
tion farm along the
banks of the Aucilla Riv-
er in Madison County.
Bembry is also a Busi-
nessman, having built
University Homes in Tal-
lahassee into one of the
area's most successful lo-
cal businesses. Through
his business he's given
thousands of area resi-
dents their first chance at


home ownership. "I
know the responsibility
of having to sign the'
front side of a check and
not just the back," he
said.
Experience, values and
deep roots in the com-
munity were cited by Be-
mbry as his qualifica-
tions for the job. "As a
lifelong resident of the
district I know the heart
and soul of the people in
our area and I under-
stand the problems we
face," he said. "As a
farmer I know the values
of hard work, persever-
ance and faith and I un-
derstand the importance
of our environment. As
a businessman I know
the value of a dollar, the
responsibility of meeting
a payroll and the disci-
pline of sticking to a
budget. As a husband, a
father and a grandfather
.I know we have to pro-
vide opportunities for
our residents - young
and old - and we have to
leave this place better off
than we found it."
Bembry's top priorities
will be to provide the ed-
ucation, create the jobs
and generate the oppor-
tunities that keep our
young people at home
and our communities
strong. He also promised.
the voters in District 10
that he will "protect our
environment from those


who seek to exploit it
and fight the budget cuts
in Tallahassee that will
hurt our schools, public
safety and vital local ser-
vices."
If elected Bembry
promises to be a humble
servant that is accessible
and available. "I will
treat people with respect
and dignity and most of
all I will listen to the peo-
ple of District 10.- with-
out regard to race, gen-
der, religion, economic
status, or geography," he
said.

would like to thank all of
the participants, parents
and sponsors for making
this camp a success. We
had eager and willing
participants that showed
much heart and determi-

They worked extremely
hard and smart, under
extreme weather condi-
tions, to become better
soccer players.
The camp took place at
the Hamilton County
Recreation Center Soccer
Complex from June 9,
through June 13. The
players learned numer-
ous soccer skills such as:
ball handling, passing,
proper kicking tech-
niques, defense, rules of
the game, etc. They also
participated in competi-
tive matches against each
other.
The coaching staff
would like to specifically
thank the following
sponsors: Sunny's Food
Mart of Jasper, Just Play
It Sports of Live Oak, and
our silent sponsors that
contributed in making
this camp a great success.


We would also like to
thank the Hamilton
County Recreation Cen-
ter for allowing us to use
their soccer facilities.
Campers, learning is
an everyday thing. In or-
der for you to continue to
improve your game,
don't forget to practice
some of the drills you
learned at camp. The
camp coaching staff and
volunteers have decided
to hold some friendly
games/practices


throughout the year. We
would like to get togeth-
er and "just play" once or
twice a month. If you are
interested in joining us,

Southern Pine Beetle Prevention Cost-Share
Program to begin accepting new applications


Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson announced
recently that the depart-
ment's Division of
Forestry is re-offering
the Southern Pine Beetle
Prevention Cost ,Share
Program to eligible non-
industrial private forest
landowners. The goal of
thp program is to mini-
Smize southern pine bee-
tle damage in Florida by
helping forest landown-
ers reduce the suscepti-
bility of their pine stands
to this destructive insect
pest.
Periodic southern pine
! beetle outbreaks in Flori-
da have resulted in mil-
: lions of cubic feet of pine
timber killed on thou-
Ssands of acres. Forest
management practices,
such as thinning, pre-
scribed burning, other
competition control, and
use of less-susceptible
pine species can im-
prove the health of pine
stands and decrease
their likelihood of devel-
oping southern pine bee-
tle infestations.


The program offers up
to 50% cost reimburse-
ment for pre-commercial
thinning, prescribed.
burning and mechanical
underbrush treatments
in existing pine stands,
and a $50 per acre incen-
tive payment for
landowners who con-
duct a first pulpwood
thinning.
In addition, landown-
ers may apply to receive
up to 50% reimburse-
ment for the cost of lon-
gleaf seedlings and $25
per acre in planting cost
assistance to establish a


longleaf pine plantation.
The program is limited
to 44 northern Florida
counties located within
the range of the southern
pine beetle. Qualified
landowners may apply
for up to two approved
practices per year. The
minimum tract size re-
quirement is 10 acres
and funding requests
may not exceed $10,000.
For an application and
more information on
program requirements
and procedures, forest
landowners can visit
their local Division of


-Forestry office or contact
the county forester office
in their area by visiting
www.fl-dof.com. Appli-
cations will be available
beginning July 30 and
will be evaluated on a
first-received, first-
served basis. The pro-
gram is supported
through temporary
grants from the USDA
Forest Service and will
be offered only as long
as funding is available.
For more information
contact Hamilton Coun-
ty Forester Greg Staten
at 792-1269.

Locks of Love


Submitted
Hi! My name is Shannon McCook - Miss Shannon
to my students. I currently own Dance Works, in
Jasper and teach full time at Sharon's School of
Dance, in Live Oak.
For as long as I can remember, I've always had
LOTS of hair. My mom told me I had my first hair
cut at 10 days old. By the time I was four years old,
it was past my waist and I kept it long until after
sixth grade, when I gave into the desire to be like the
crowd and have short, permed hair. That phase only
lasted two years; then I began growing it out my
freshman year of high school and continued to wear
it long until well after I graduated.
At the age of 25, I had the desire to cut my hair
again, hated that I was cutting so much off, and it
was just going in the trash - if only someone could
use it. I had heard talk of an organization that would
take hair donations to make wigs for children bit I
could not find any information. Now understand
this was when the Internet was still fairly new to
everyone and not everything could be found on the
Internet.
After keeping my hair short for a couple of years,
I let it grow out again and kept it long. My 30th
birthday was rolling around and the Internet was
the source for all knowledge. Now I was able to find
out about "Locks of Love," an organization that takes
hair donations of 10" or longer and makes wigs for
children who have lost their hair due to disease. I
knew right then and there that I was cutting my hair
again and this time it was going to someone who
could use it. I cut my hair in two separate braids,
each measuring 17". I felt exhilarated! I couldn't wait


* '. I


to grow my hair out again and make another dona-
tion!
So here I was, nearly three years later with hair
back down to my. waist and ready to make the cut
again. Then it hit me, why not ask my students to
make a donation with me. How amazing would that
be? So, I set a goal to try and recruit 20 dancers from
either of my studios to make the cut with me. In Jan-
uary, I sent home letters telling them about "Locks of
Love" and a new organization "Beautiful Lengths"
(Beautiful Lengths is sponsored by Pantene and
makes wigs for women affected by Cancer, free of
charge) and asking for volunteers. I immediately
had five students sign up. As time went on, a few
more added their name to the list.
As May rolled around, it was time to iron out de-
tails and set everything up. Friday, May 23, was se-
lected as the day and 5 p.m. the time to gather every-
one together, but where to gather? A dancer's parent
suggested I call Loretta Thomas (another dance par-
ent) who owns a local salon in Live Oak, Hot Heads.
I told her my plan and asked if she could help. She
was so excited to help and even got her-husband,
Kickin' Kevin, a DJ on WQHL to help us out and
spread the word on the radio!
Friday, May 23, finally arrived and a large group
of girls ranging from six years old to 18 years gath-
ered with me to make the cut. Several people had
dropped off previously cut ponytails earlier that
day. Local restaurant, Grace Manor donated deli-
cious treats for everyone to enjoy while waiting to
get their hair cut and styled. Excitement was a buzz!
After "before" pictures, everyone started being put
into ponytails, measured, and snipped by Loretta
Thomas, Tammy Corbin, Cher Register, and Priscil-
la Lane. After I braided my hair into two separate
braids, two Live Oak students Ashton Kelton (7,
years old) and Katrina Sivyer (14 years old) cut off
my braids! Lots of new% hairstyles were given at a re-
duced rate and lots ot happy girls left the salon!
Since then, several more ponytails have been
dropped off to be sent in with the group.
A total of 27 people donated between 8" to 21" of
hair giving us a grand total of 334" of hair. Twelve
ponytails will be sent to Beautiful Lengths and 18
ponytails will be sent to Locks of Love.
Young ladie- donating hair from Hamilton Coun-
ty was Jes-ica Carter. Diane Carter, Julianna Wheel-
er. Abigail Barthelme-, and Cheyenne Cribbs. Do-
nating hair from Live Oak was Brooke Wetzel, Mari-
ah Shearer, Ashton Kelton, Harli Feeney, Kami
Boswell, Kaila Dalton, Megan Shearer, Patty
Bo-swell. Julia Robinson. Alyssa Phillips, Jennifer Pe-
tit. lennifer Da\ is, Brittany McCullers, Katrina Sivy-
er, Ariana Gienger, Ann-
Marie Scott, Abby Mick-
Sler, Natalie Fina, Melissa
Burgess, Vicky Duck-

ture, information for both organizations can be

Dear Classified Guys,
Not long ago I found an ad in the
classified where someone was giv-
ing away free kittens. I decided to
go look since I had a cat growing up
and loved the idea of getting one
again. I must admit at three weeks
old, they were all very cute. One was
tan and orange like a tiger, another
was white with black patches like a
cow. There was one that was all
black with white paws who looked
like it was wearing a tuxedo. After
playing with them all, I settled
on one that was all white, -.
and called it Casper like the --.j
ghost. The funny thing was ---
that I was told the mother was a
purebred American Shorthair
and the father was just a neighbor's
house pet that got loose. How is it
possible for all the cats from this lit-
ter to have such unique coloring?
Neither myself nor the person giving
them away really had any answers.
Can you help shed some light?
Carry: Cats are similar to people in
many ways. In addition to the fact that
many of us would like to sleep all day
in the sun, we both come in all shapes,
sizes and colors.
Cash: For cats, the color of their fur,
eyes or even nails makes them unique.


(





Duane "Cas
& Todd




Although there is some consistency
within a breed, their coloring is a func-
tion of their genetic makeup.
Carry: Pedigreed American
Shorthair cats naturally come in a vari-
ety of colors and patterns. However,
true pedigrees should produce kittens
with the same physical characteristics
as the parents. Once they mate with a
mixed breed, like the neighbor's cat,
you never know what will happen.
Cash: Those fun fur colors that you
see are determined by the density of
melanin in the cat's hair. As the density
changes, it reflects more or less light,
changing the appearance of the hair
color.

Carry: Some cats get lucky and look
like they're wearing a tuxedo. Others
get stuck looking like a cow!
Cash: Much like the hair color, the
temperament of the cat is inherited
from the parents as well. So it's wise to
play with each cat to see which one is a
good match for you.
Carry: American Shorthairs,,
whether purebred or not, make great
pets and are among the top ten most
popular breeds. They are well known
for their good looks, strong health and
friendliness with children and dogs.
Cash: So with any luck, both you
and Casper should be basking in the
sun in no time.


Purr-fect
American Shorthairs have always
been one of the most popular breeds
among cat owners. Not surprisingly,
they have a very long history in the
United States. It's believed that several
Shorthaired cats arrived in America on
the Mayflower with the Pilgrims. They
allegedly snuck onto the ship, but were
quickly embraced for keeping the
rodents on board under control. Later
when the Pilgrims settled onto farms,
the cats were once again welcomed for
managing the rodent population.
To Dye For?
Could genetics soon make blonde
jokes a thing of the past? An alleged
study published in September 2002
claimed that naturally blonde-haired
people might one day be extinct.
Blonde hair is a result of a recessive
gene that must be present in both sides
of the family. However, as people of
various hair colors reproduce, the gene
becomes less prevalent. Experts agree
that the proportion of natural blondes
may diminish, but also agree that there
is no truth to the supposed study. Just
in case though, maybe everyone should
brush up on their brunette jokes.
Got a question or funny story? Call (888) 242-
3644 or email comments@classifiedguys.com.

Petting Zoo
My friend has had many different
pets over the years, but most recently
adopted an older dog she found in a
newspaper ad. Although she's had
her cat for years, she explangd ha
she was becoming more and more
fond of the dog. '
When she called to the animals, the
dog came running and sat on the sofa
next to us. The cat. on the other %
hand., hlfted its head to look at us anu
then Went back tq sleeping on the
window sill.
"Is that xvwh you favor the dog?" I
joked.
"Kind of," she explained. "At least
j the dog comes % hen I call The cat
seems to put me on hold and check
its schedule"'

A new wrinkle in headache treatment


Headache sufferers are finding relief from migraines from an
unexpected source. Botox�, the drug best known for reducing
wrinkles, is being used to treat headaches. Physicians believe that the
drug reduces headache pain because it reduces muscle contractions or
blocks a pain-transmitting chemical, or through a combination of both
actions.
Wayne T. Cornblath, M.D., neuro-ophthalmologist at the University of
Michigan Kellogg Eye Center, says that many of his patients are
relieved to find that Botox makes their once debilitating headaches
manageable.
Mary Anne Brancheau is one such patient who characterizes the
treatment as "life altering." Now that the injections are working, she
realizes the magnitude of the pain, frustration and fatigue that
accompanied her daily headaches. '"I tried other medications for years,
but nothing really worked. Before, I'd describe my quality of life as
mediocre; now I'm productive again, and I'd classify the quality of life
as a ten," she says,
Doctors discovered this new use for Botox just a few years ago, when
patients reported fewer headaches after receiving injections to reduce
wrinkles. Several clinical trials followed, and in June 2002 researchers
at the annual meeting of the American Headache Society reported on a
study of 134 individuals, most of whom, like Ms. Brancheau, had little
success with conventional medications.
Some 84 percent said that Botox had lessened the pain from their
migraine, tension, or chronic daily headaches. Comblath says that he
sees a similar success rate in his own practice. "In my experience,
about one-third of my patients have had complete relief from
headaches, and another one-third have found partial relief," Dr.
Cornblath observes.
To treat headaches Cornblath administers approximately 10 injections,
five in the forehead and five in the back of the neck. The small dose
and location of the injections help to minimize side effects, which are
generally limited to a slight decrease in ability to move forehead
muscles or elevate the eyebrows.
According to Cornblath, "The side effects are negligible, especially
when.compared to those associated with some of the stronger migraine
medications."
The injections take from 1 to 14 days to have an effect, and the benefits
last from 2 to 5 months.


For more information, contact the Eye Plastic and Neuro-
Ophthalmology Clinic at the U-M Kellogg Eye Center, 734-763-9142.
Beyond Botox
Innovative treatment options, such as Botox injections to remedy
headaches, are continually being investigated. The National Headache
Foundation reports that a number of new headache treatments are in the
research and trial phases.
* Generics: Oral and intranasal generic sumatriptan are expected to be
available in 2008 and 2009, respectively (Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. and NovaDel).
* Inhalation device: Uses heat to vaporize a drug into an odorless mist
that passes through the lungs into the bloodstream. The hope is to
provide relief within 60 seconds. The device is currently in clinical
trials using prochlorperazine (Staccato� from Alexza Molecular
Delivery Corp.).
* Skin patch: The system uses a transdermal patch containing the drug
and a small battery-powered electronic controller that precisely
controls the rate and amount of drug released from the patch. A patch is
currently in clinical trials using zolmitriptan (Actyve� from Vyteris). A
sumatriptan transdermal patch based on proprietary SmartRelief�
iontophoretic patch technology is in development. (NuPathe)
* Nasal powders: A powder form of dihydroergotamine is being studied.
Currently administered as a nasal spray, the powder form may be easier

North Florida CommunitN College's iNFCCi Mar-
shall Hamilton LibrarN staff smtri\e to keep the Li-
brar 's book collection as cuITent as possible and ac-
cording to a recent assessment b\ the College Center
for Library Automation (CCLA), the) are doing a
great job. Among its peer community colleges, Nod
NFCC ranks first in terms of lowest overall median cal
age of its books.
With more than 30,000 total books in circulation,
the Library extracts approximately 1,500 books from
its collection each year so newer teits can be added.
Newer books tend to circulate better among Library
patrons and offer current information for students,
faculty and the community.
"The youth of our collection is an indicator of
quality," said North Florida Community College Di-
rector of Library and Learning Resources Sheila
Hiss. "Our goal is to offer books that meet our facul-
ty needs and provide our students with new and rele-
vant research material."
The NFCC Library has improved its collection
significantly in the areas of technology, sciences, and
social science since 1998. In 1998 the age of *
NFCC's technology books collection averaged at 20
years old; it now averages at 12 years old. In social
sciences, NFCC improved its collection from a me-
dian age of 22 to 15 and in sciences improved from
a median age of 15 to 11 years. CCLA stated that the
"decrease in the percentage of total from 1998 to
2007 for the NFCC collection shows continued at-
tention to collection management." In other words,
the NFCC Library is doing an outstanding job at up-
dating its collection of books.
NFCC also stands out as a leader among similar
sized community colleges in Florida when compar-
ing the percentage of books in its collection pub-
lished prior to 1970. With a continuing goal to de-
crease older books in circulation, only' 10 percent of
NFCC's books in the subject of technology are dated
pre-1970; an improvement from 29 percent in 1998.
Other areas also indicate progress - only 13 percent
of science books are currently dated pre-1970 show-
ing a significant improvement from 40 percent in
1998; social sciences are at 21 percent and Humani-
ties are at 38'percent.
Since 2002 NFCC has improved the overall medi-
an age of its books by seven years. By weeding out
older books and managing its collection well, the
NFCC Library is able to offer one of the best book-
collections among smaller Florida community col-
leges. The Library also offers more than 30,000 e-
books, has videos and magazines available for check
out, and offers computers with Internet access to stu- B
dents, NFCC employees and community members. -
"The Library is a resource for the college," said 'n
Hiss. "We depend on the input of faculty and stu- E
dents for suggestions on the types of materials and rK
books that are needed and we depend on the college .
administration's commitment to a quality library."
The Florida Community College Collection As-
sessment was published by the CCLA in 2007. Es-
tablished in 1989 by the Florida Legislature, CCLA
operates Florida's Library Information Network for
Community Colleges (LINCC) and the Web-based 4
library information portal, LINCCWeb
http://www.cclaflorida.org/linccweb, from its head-
quarters in Tallahassee.
The Marshall Hamiltdn Library is located on the *
NFCC campus in Madison and is currently open to
the public Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Infor-
mation on the Library, including links to the Library
Catalog, is available at

NFCC can earn both high
school and college credits.
"I am taking dual enroll-
ment to get ahead in not
only on my, college, but
also my high school," said
Taylor County High School
student Charlie Johnson.
"By taking English at
NFCC, I get college hours �
and high school credits at
the same time."
Classes like Computer
Applications I, Freshman
English I and General Psy-
chology give the Dual En-
rollment Summer Institute
participants a chance to ex-
penence challenging col-
lege level courses. Suwan-
nee High School student
Chance Cummings is feel-
ing that very challenge.
"The classes are chal--
Tlnging and there's a lot of
reading involved, but all in
all I'm learning," said
Cummings.
For other dual enrollment
students it's all about expe-
riencing college life, while
building positive experi-
ences for future endeavors.
"I want to get used to
college life before I get out
of high school," said Madi-
son County High School
student Jimmy Smith. "I
also wantedto take the
courses because it would
look good on my resume
when I graduate."
Whether students are
looking to get ahead of the
educational curve or accli-
mate themselves to college
life, NFCC's dual enroll-
ment is available to quali-
fying students with a 3.0
GPA or higher, acceptable
placement test scores, and
approval of their high
school guidance office.
Students in public, private
and home-school environ-
ments are eligible. NFCC
tuition is waived.
For more information
about dual enrollment or
early college admissions
parents and students should
contact their high school
counselors. For more infor-
mation about NFCC visit
