Jarvis appointed to

statewide task force


Staff
Third Circuit State Attor-
ney Skip Jarvis has been ap-
pointed by the Florida
Supreme Court to a Task
Force on Substance Abuse
and Mental Health. The
task force consists of eleven
trial and appellate court
judges, one State Attorney
(Jarvis), one Public Defend-
er, and eight mental health
and substance abuse profes-
sionals. A spokesman for
Supreme Court Chief Jus-
tice Charles Canady said
that each member of the
task force was individually
chosen for their experience

and expertise in these areas.
The task force held its ini-
tial meeting yesterday in
Tampa.
The mission of the task
force is to look into criminal
cases in which either mental
health or substance abuse
issues are the underlying
cause of the crime and to
suggest changes to the ap-
plicable statutes and proce-
dural rules.
"With the decline in
treatment resources avail-
able, we find more and
more that the mentally ill
are coming into the criminal
system," said Jarvis. "Often
the costs of their case, from
special issues while incar-
cerated to a need for follow
up treatment, greatly exceed
that of the average case. If
we can find an alternative,
we may be able to address
the mental health issues
with compassion and un-
derstanding. The mentally
ill are different from the av-
erage law violator. A defen-
dant generally
makes a conscious
decision to violate PRI
the law, but no
one makes a deci-
sion to be mentally
ill."
Substance abuse
is the other main
focus of the task
force. $41,9C

ment shown by our students
and staff at Hamilton County
High School," said Supt.
Martha Butler. "Their dedica-
tion resulted in an increase in
our school grade from an 'F' to
a 'D.' Work is well underway
to ensure that we not only sus-
tain this growth, but to also
continue to improve our stu-
dent achievement. I applaud
the leadership of Hamilton


County High School for their
dedication in making HCHS a
model school."
This year, the state used a
new grading formula that cal-
culated 50 percent of a high
school's grades from FCAT
scores and learning gains com-
ponents with the other 50 per-
cent based on a combination of
academic factors, including
school graduation rate, includ-
ing graduation rate of at-risk
students, the performance and


participation of students in Ad-
vanced Placement (AP) and
other accelerated coursework
programs, dual enrollment and
industry certification.
"The staff and students of
Hamilton County High School
stepped up to meet the chal-
lenges of increasing our school
grade and are to be commend-
ed for their dedication and suc-
cess," added Butler.

"Certainly we can lock up drug defendants and dur-
ing the period of their incarceration we have prevent-
ed their use of illegal substances, but once released,
the same incentives are there to resume the use of
these drugs," Jarvis said. "We are looking for ways
for the court to address the problem in a more long
term fashion than simply
imprisonment. We want to address the root of the
problem."
Jarvis noted that two Florida counties utilize drug
courts, with some success.


SRWMD issues water shortage advisory


Continued From Page 1A

agricultural and industrial users to
voluntarily reduce both indoor and
outdoor water use through conserva-
tion measures.
The district already has a landscape
irrigation rule in place which limits
lawn and landscape watering to one
day per week during fall and winter
and two days per week during spring
and summer. The rule took effect in
January of this year and applies to all
residents within the district. It is per-
manent, long-term, and requires
mandatory landscape irrigation con-
servation year-round.
The Phase I Advisory, on the other
hand, is issued in response to moder-
ate or severe drought conditions and
remains in effect only as long as
needed. The advisory calls upon all
residents to voluntarily implement in-


door and outdoor conservation mea-
sures in addition to those required by
the year-round landscape irrigation
rule.
Once drought conditions improve
and groundwater and surfacewater
levels rebound, the governing board
may cancel the Phase I Advisory.
Should conditions worsen, however,
the governing board may declare a
Phase II Advisory, which imposes
mandatory water-use restrictions.
Water shortage advisories are is-
sued by the district in accordance
with Florida Statutes and the Florida
Administrative Code, which give
them authority to implement water
shortage plans.
According to the National Weather
Service, the Suwannee River basin is
experiencing an extreme drought.
Megan Wetherington, a senior pro-
fessional engineer at the district, said

groundwater and surfacewater levels
continue to worsen throughout the
district due to below-average monthly
rainfall.
"River levels are extremely low and
groundwater levels have fallen steadi-
ly since the summer," she said.
In November, flows for the Suwan-
nee River and its tributaries fell below
the 5th percentile for the period of
record, meaning more than 95 percent
of the time since the 1930s they were
higher for this time of year than they
are currently.
Average groundwater levels fell to
the 33rd percentile in November,
based on records beginning in 1978.
Total rain for October and Novem-
ber was 1.33 inches, the lowest since
2001 and the eighth lowest since 1932.
Gages at Usher Tower (near
Chiefland) and Starke reported no
rainfall in October, making it the dri-
est October on record in those areas.
Wetherington said long-term fore-
casts call for drier than normal condi-
tions throughout winter and spring.
"With La Nina expected to persist at
least through spring, the district may
be in for dry conditions for quite
some time," she said.
District officials are stressing the
need for conservation until conditions
improve.
Jon Dinges, the district's director of
water supply and resource manage-
ment, said the advisory is intended to
mitigate any impacts the drought may
have on our water supply.

resources is more important than
ever," Dinges said.
The district offers the following wa-
ter-saving tips:
* Fix leaky faucets and toilets,
which can waste up to 100 gallons per
day.

* Replace older fixtures and appli-
ances with low-flow, water-saving
models.

* Turn off tap while brushing teeth,
shaving, or washing dishes.

* Water lawns and landscapes only
one day per week and not between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m.

* Use Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ingTM

* Equip hoses with automatic shut-
off nozzles.

* Wash vehicles infrequently and
only on porous surfaces.

* Use a broom or blower - not a
hose - to clean sidewalks, driveways,
parking areas.

* Take shorter showers; staying un-
der 5 minutes can save 1,000 gallons
per month.

* Don't use toilet as a waste basket.

ly, I got what I ask o . Imagine how impressed I
was! Santa has been in a lo of movies too, more than
any movie star I know of. Many of his movies, such
as "Miracle on 34th Street" chronicle Santa's adven-
tures in big cities such as New York City. Santa does
not go anywhere unnoticed!
Yes, his visits to big cities and his fame and star-
dom have not gone without notice, but the most
amazing thing to me about Santa Claus is how much
he loves White Springs! I saw him in our Christmas
parade and children who visit the Festival of Lights
at Stephen Foster Park tell me that he is there almost
every night and seems to be enjoying the cold weath-
er! He has an amazing appetite! Last Saturday about
seventy-five White Springs kids had a breakfast of
pancakes and sausage with Santa. Before he arrived
they listened to a reading of "The Night Before
Christmas". When Santa showed up he gave every
single one of the kids a surprise early Christmas pre-
sent, including a few new bicycles! As amazing as he
is, he still appreciates help and Santa got a lot of help
from his elves, including Mike and Jim, the elves at
the White Springs Police Department, Special Events
Committee, and Town Hall, the wonderful elves at
the Suwannee Bike Association, the great Stephen
Foster Park Rangers, and many, many others, please
forgive me if I don't mention them all. If there is any-
one out there who has doubts, let me tell you that all
of Santa's White Springs helpers know without a
doubt, there is a Santa Claus!

Dottie and Dennis Price from a material called hy-

learned the art of mixing hypertufa and molding
troughs at a workshop at O'Toole's Herb Farm in

word that the Hamilton County School Board has

Thanks to all the folks in White Springs and Hamil-

worked on this over the last couple of years. Your ef-

Don't forget to do as much of your Christmas
shopping as you possibly can locally. Wonderful

OPINION


Changing America


Dr. Thomas Sowell, in "Dismantling
America," said in reference to Presi-
dent Obama, "That such an adminis-
tration could be elected in the first
place, headed by a man whose only
qualifications to be president of the
United States at a dangerous time in
the history of the world were rhetoric,
style and symbolism -- and whose an-
imus against the values and institu-
tions of America had been demon-
strated repeatedly over a period of
decades beforehand -- speaks volumes
about the inadequacies of our educa-
tional system and the degeneration of
our culture." Obama is by no means
unique; his characteristics are shared
by other Americans, but what is
unique is that no other time in our his-
tory would such a person been elected
president. That says a lot about the de-
generation of our culture, values,
thinking abilities and acceptance of


what's no less
than tyranny. As
Sowell says, 1
"Barack Obama is
unlike any other
President of the
United States in
having come
from a back- 2
ground of BY WALTE
decades of associ-
ations and alliances with people who
resent this country and its people." In
2008, Americans voted for Obama's
change. Let's look at some of it.
Obama's Health and Human Ser-
vices Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
threatened that there would be "zero
tolerance" for "misinformation" in re-
sponse to an insurance company exec-
utive who said that ObamaCare
would create costs that force up health


insurance


premiums. That's not only
an attack on our consti-
tutionally guaranteed
free speech rights but
an official threat against
people who express
views damaging to the
administration.
Not to be outdone by
his HHS secretary's at-
tack on free speech,
Obama wants full dis-
closure of the names of
people who were back-
ers of campaign com-
mercials critical of his
administration, saying


that there has
A been a "flood of
IINORITrrY deceptive attack
ads sponsored by
V-I W special interests,
using front
groups with mis-
leading names."
10 Creators Syndicate Disclosure would
R WILLIAMS leave administra-
tion critics open
to government and mob retaliation.
Obama and his congressional and
union allies have lectured us that so-
cialized medicine is the cure for the
nation's ills, but I have a question. If
socialized medicine, Obamacare, is so
great for the nation, why permit any-
one to be exempted from it? It turns
out that as of the end of November,
Obama's Health and Human Services
secretary has issued over 200 waivers
to major labor unions such as the In-
ternational Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers Union and Transport Work-
ers Union of America and major com-
panies such as McDonald's and Dard-
en Restaurants, which operates Red
Lobster and Olive Garden. Keep in
mind that the power to grant waivers
is also the power not to grant waivers.
Such power can be used to reward ad-
ministration friends and punish ad-
ministration critics by saddling them
with millions of dollars of health care
costs.
Obama's heath care legislation con-
tains deviousness that has become all
too common in Washington. What


was sold to the American people as
health care reform legislation includes
a provision that would more heavily
regulate and tax gold coin and bullion
transactions. Whether gold and bul-
lion transactions should or should not
be more heavily regulated and taxed
is not the issue. The administration's
devious inclusion of it as a part of
health care reform is.
Fighting government intrusion into
our lives is becoming increasingly dif-
ficult for at least two reasons. The first
reason is that educators at the prima-
ry, secondary and university levels
have been successful in teaching our
youngsters to despise the values of
our Constitution and the founders of
our nation -- "those dead, old, racist
white men." Their success in that are-
na might explain why educators have
been unable to get our youngsters to
read, write and compute on a level
comparable with other developed na-
tions; they are too busy proselytizing
students.
The second reason is we've become
a nation of thieves, accustomed to liv-
ing at the expense of one another and
to accommodate that we're obliged to
support tyrannical and overreaching
government.
Adolf Hitler had it right when he
said, "How fortunate for governments
that the people they administer don't
think."

nomics at George Mason University.

By Angie Land
"So Ruth gleaned in
the field until evening.
Then she threshed the
barley she had gathered,
and it amounted to
about an ephah. She car-
ried it back to town and
her mother-in-law saw
how much she had gath-
ered. Ruth also brought
out and gave her what
she had left over after
she had eaten enough.
Her mother-in-law
asked her, 'Where did
you glean today? Where
did you work? Blessed
be the man who took no-
tice of you!' Then Ruth
told her mother-in-law
about the one at whose
place she had been
working. 'The name of
the man I worked with
today is Boaz,' she said.
'The Lord bless him!'
Naomi said to her
daughter-in-law. 'He has
not stopped showing his
kindness to the living
and the dead.' She
added, 'That man is our


close relative; he is one
of our kinsman-re-
deemers.'" (Ruth 2:17-
20)
God often uses flesh
and blood examples in
the pages of scripture to
model important spiritu-
al truths. For example,
in the life of David, we
better understand the
authority and royalty of
God as our King. In
Moses' brother, Aaron,
we get a clearer picture
of Jesus' role as our High
Priest. Both are imper-
fect representations, but
with enough likeness to
the real deal to give us
the idea. Buried deep in
this second chapter of
Ruth we find the point of
this entire story... the
concept of the Kinsman-
Redeemer, played out in
Ruth's story by Boaz.
The importance of this
role is critical to Ruth
and Naomi's
future...and ours.
Because this term is
unfamiliar in our cul-
ture, let's clarify what is
meant by the title of
Kinsman-Redeemer. A
kinsman is a near rela-
tive... such as a brother,
uncle, even a close
cousin. The word "re-
deem" means to buy
back or repurchase. So
by definition, a Kins-
man-Redeemer is a rela-
tive who is obligated to
buy back property that a
family member has lost


through debt or other
means. According to
Leviticus 25:23, inherited
property could not be
sold permanently, be-
cause it belonged to
God. It could, however,
be sold, or "leased" for
use by another to raise
crops or herds, with the
original owner, or any of
his near relatives, having
the permanent option to
repay the debt and re-
gain the property. This
obligation of the Kins-
man-Redeemer also ex-
tended to the redemp-
tion of any family mem-
ber who fell on hard
times and was forced to
sell himself into slavery
in order to provide for
his family or repay a
debt.
So why do you and I
need a Kinsman-Re-
deemer? No doubt, we
have all given up heredi-
tary property... spiritual
blessings that should
have been handed down
from one generation to
the next, but have been
forfeited and replaced
with things such as
anger, pride, and assort-
ed addictions. Wouldn't
we all like to have those
blessings redeemed and
restored to our family
line? The Bible also
clearly states that indi-
vidually, we have all
sinned, and that the
wages or payment for
our sin is death... a debt

Notes

By Lillian Norris


IT"BEGINNING TO
LOOK A LOT LIKE
CHRISTMAS! The
lights are shining above
the streets, homes are be-
ing decorated, yards are
looking good, the Spirit
of CHRISTmas is evi-
dent all around the
County. People are re-
membering the meaning
of CHRISTmas, we are
thankful that we can still
keep it that way. I know
you will all have much
news for me in the com-
ing days and weeks (not
many weeks).
Our congratulations to
Virginia Davis McFar-
lane, who celebrated her
90th birthday recently,


her birthday was No-
vember 22nd, with fami-
ly at the home of her
daughter and her family,
Margaret Lewis. Vir-
ginia has been an impor-
tant member of our com-
munity, having raised
her family here, and
taught in the school sys-
tem. Virginia's son,
John Davis and his fami-
ly came from Leesburg
to celebrate with her.
We remember Virginia's
other daughter, Johnnie
Kay Wagoner, who is de-
ceased. Her son, Rog,
lives and works in
Gainesville. Virginia
has a number of grand-
children and great-


grandchildren. She is a
member of First Baptist
Church, Jasper.
A little late, but I think
it is important enough to
do it anyway (can't you
just hear me talking to
myself), I want to thank
Mr. Bo Beauchemin, Vet-
erans Service Officer
here, for his cooperation
in sending me informa-
tion on this program by
email prior to the ser-
vice. Also, I want to
congratulate the HCHS
AF JROTC instructors
and students for their ap-
pearance at various func-
tions in our community.
They make us proud, al-
ways professional in ap-
pearance and actions. We
are fortunate to have
them to carry out their
functions at various oc-
casions. Jessie Bristol
sang the National An-
them beautifully. We
were fortunate to have

Leonard Bembry speak

I was disappointed
that I did not see any-
thing on television com-
memorating December
7th, Pearl Harbor Day, as
I remember it, but in
conversation Hazel Roy-
als said she did see
something, I think on the
Education Channel, but I
missed it. It seems that
sometimes we hear an-
cient history, and recent
history and the other
gets lost in between,
maybe that is because of
my age that certain parts
of history are more im-
portant to me, many of
my friends are getting
there too.
Lamar and Hazel Roy-
als recently attended an-
nual Retiree Apprecia-


tion Days at Ft. Benning,
GA. They always look
forward to visiting Ft.
Benning as it was one of
the bases where Lamar
spent a lot of time dur-
ing his career. The Re-
tiree function was very
informative, with tours
of the National Infantry
Museum, news as to
what is going on in the
military, and the oppor-
tunity to interact with
young soldiers. The re-
tirees also were ad-
dressed at a luncheon by
the new commander of
Ft. Benning, Major Gen.
Robert Brown. General
Brown has served two
tours in the Middle East
and during his talk to
the retirees he made spe-
cial reference to how
much the packages sent
from the folks back
home meant to all the
troops serving in Iraq
and Afghanistan.
Our local people are to
be commended for their
dedication to this project
and the nice thing about
it is, it is a blessing to
them also. I attended
once last year before I
got grounded and it was
such a happy time,
knowing they were help-
ing to make life a little
brighter for loved ones
'over there'.
We had the Christmas
Pageant with the chil-
dren, it is always such a


blessing to see the chil-
dren as they act out the
different characters and
sing Christmas carols. I
notice that the First Bap-
tist Church was having
their regular evening
service on December
12th at the Stephen Fos-
ter State Park. Their
Music Ministry was to
provide special Christ-
mas Music on the steps
of the museum from 6-8
PM, part of the Christ-
mas Light Festival with
over 1,000,000 lights!
Did I read that right!
That must have been
wonderful.
I did not realize how
long I was getting until I
hit the bottom of the
page, forgive me if it has
been too long. I guess I
am just now getting ex-
cited about the season,
so different from last
year for me.
Thank you all for your
encouragement, all are
special to me. Give me
some news for next
week. I guess I will be
having earlier deadlines
as the holidays really get
under way.

MERRY
CHRISTMAS
to all!

am full retirement age.
Do I need to report my
earnings to Social Secu-
rity?
Answer:
No. When you reach
full retirement age, you
no longer need to report
your earnings to Social
Security. You do, howev-
er, need to report earn-
ings for those months in
the calendar year before
the month you reach full
retirement age. For ex-
ample, if you reach it in
May, you would need to
report your earnings to-
tal for the four earlier
months. If you are under
full retirement age when
you start getting your
Social Security pay-
ments, $1 in benefits will
be deducted for each $2
you earn above the an-
nual limit. For 2010 and
2011, that limit is


$14,160. In the calendar
year you attain full re-
tirement age, $1 in bene-
fits will be deducted for
each $3 you earn above a
higher annual limit up to
the month of full retire-
ment age attainment. For
2010 and 2011, that limit
is $37,680. Learn your
full retirement age by

Question:
I am retired and I re-
ceive a monthly with-
drawal from an IRA. I
plan to apply for Social
Security benefits. Will
the money from my IRA
be considered earnings
that could reduce my
monthly benefits?
Answer:
No. Non-work in-
come such as pensions,
annuities, investment in-
come, interest, capital


gains, and other govern-
ment benefits are not
counted and will not af-
fect your Social Security
benefits. For more infor-
mation, we suggest the
following publications:
Retirement Benefits
(Publication No. 05-
10035) and How Work
Affects Your Benefits
(Publication No.05-
10069). You can find
both online at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov.
Question:
Are Supplemental Se-
curity Income (SSI) ben-
efits taxable?
Answer:
No. SSI payments are
not taxable. You will not
receive an annual form

tion, Supplemental Se-
curity Income (SSI) at

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA



I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife,
Brooke, and I bought it. We were working hard to build a
business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help
our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.
Instead, they asked us if we could serve food to the workers,
engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to
cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we
weren't the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and
kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and
down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed.
Our restaurant's open six days a week. Customers are filling our
restaurant again and we think it's a good time to come down to
the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here
and while it's been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just
one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to
seeing you.

Wise Men Still
By David H. Matier, Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling
In Matthew's account of the Christ-
mas Story, Matthew chapter 2, in vers-
es two through six the wise men had a
special message for Herod. First they
asked, "Where is he that is born King
of the Jews? For we have seen his star
in the east, and are come to worship
him," (Matthew 2:2). This of course
caused Herod no little consternation
because he was the ruler in the district,
he was the one with the authority, the
one to be looked up to. "And when he
(Herod) had gathered all the chief
priests and scribes of the people to-
gether, he demanded of them where
Christ should be born. And they said
unto him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for
thus it is written by the prophet, And
thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda,
art not the least among the princes of
Juda: for out of thee shall come a Gov-
ernor, that shall rule my people Israel,"
(Matthew 2:4-6). As Herod heard this
message he became just that much
more worried and stressed out giving
the wise men careful instructions as to
what he expected them to do - "...Go
and search diligently for the young
child and when ye have found him
bring me word again, that I may come
and worship him also," (Matthew 2:8).
Herod knew that if the message the


THE JASPER NEWS, Jasper, FL


Tell The Story
wise men brought was true that he
would have to make some drastic
changes in his life, but as so many peo-
ple he was confused as to what those
changes would entail. Of course you
know, as Paul Harvey would say, "The
rest of the story," how Herod had all
the Hebrew babies from 2 years old
and down murdered! - based on the
time the star appeared. He rebelled
against the message!
Today those who carry the message
of the Savior to the world are consid-
ered to be wise men - God's Word
says, "The fruit of the righteous is a
tree of life; and he that winneth souls is
wise," (Proverbs 11:30). Winning souls
is simply carrying the message to a lost
and dying world. Many times you'll
make enemies because those you pre-
sent the gospel to will recognize, as
Herod of old did, that they will have to
make changes in their lives and in-
stead of repenting and accepting the
gospel message they will choose to re-
main rebellious in their life style and
habits. But notice what the next verse
says. "Behold, the righteous shall be
recompensed in the earth: much more
the wicked and the sinner." (Proverbs
11:31)

Submitted
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) direct-
ed staff recently to advertise new
rule proposals that would modify
hunting season dates on many FWC-
managed areas. The new rules could
be approved for final adoption at the
February 2011 Commission meeting.
During the past year, the FWC,
and its partners and cooperating
agency landowners, have worked
with stakeholders in developing pro-
posals to change season dates for
these public hunting lands. These
lands include wildlife management
areas, wildlife and environmental ar-
eas and miscellaneous areas.
Making these adjustments would
align these areas more closely with
the newly adopted hunting zone sea-
son dates, which took effect this
year.
"With the new changes to hunting
season dates this year on private
lands, we - and our hunting stake-
holders - feel that season dates need
to be modified on several of our ar-
eas to correspond better with the
new zonal seasons and the timing of
deer breeding," said Diane Egge-
man, director of the FWC's Division
of Hunting and Game Management.
The FWC held nine public meet-
ings across the state and gathered in-
put and feedback on the subject
through an online poll. Proposed


changes take into consideration
when deer breed on each area and
other hunter preferences, such as
hunting during holidays and the de-
sires of other area users.
"We want to make things as good
as we can for public-land hunters,"
said Cory Morea, FWC biologist and
deer management program coordi-
nator. "Adjusting some of these
dates to make the seasons occur clos-
er to peak deer activity or during
holidays should increase hunter sat-
isfaction.
"But, at the same time, we don't
want to fix something that isn't bro-
ken," Morea said. "Hunters have
told us that on some of our areas the
seasons are timed just right, so we
aren't recommending any changes to
those areas."
If approved at the February Com-
mission meeting, these rules would
become effective July 1, 2011 and ap-
ply to the 2011-12 hunting season.
"We always advise hunters to
look at the individual public hunting
area rules and regulations brochures
to know the hunting season dates
for a particular area," Morea said.
"In most cases, they are different
from the hunting zone in which the
area lies."
For information on the specific
season date changes being proposed
for each area, go to
MyFWC.com/Deer.

Pittman and Bristol fall short


By Corey Davis

Hamilton County coach Mike Pittman and se-
nior athlete Gerald Bristol came up short in the
voting for the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 1A
Coach and Player of the Year.
Dixie County tailback Mike West won the 1A
Player of the Year with 97 points, Port St Joe ath-


lete Calvin Pryor was second with 90 points and
Melbourne Central Catholic athlete Rashawn Scott
was third with 76 points.
Fort Meade second year coach Jermalle Cornelius
won the Coach of the Year with 93 points,
Northview Sid Wheatley was second with 75 points
and Delray American Heritage Doug Socha was
third with 58 points.
Since 1992, the Florida Dairy Farmers has recog-
nized the top student-athlete and coaches from
across the state. The awards are given out in 26
sports, with lacrosse being added this year.
One coach and one player from all six classifica-
tions (lA, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A) will be hon-
ored as that classification winner. The six winners
will then be nominated for the Mr. Football/Coach
of the Year award, which will be announced later
this month.
After starting the season 0-3, Pittman guided the
Trojans to seven consecutive wins and its first dis-
trict title since 1998, before bowing out in the first
round of the playoffs 27-22 to Tampa Berkeley Prep.
The other nominees for the 1A Coach of the Year
were: Willie Bueno (American Heritage), Vernon
Dorminey (Trinity Christian), Robert Craft (NFC),
Craig Dobson (King's Academy), Jermaile Cornelius
(Fort Meade), Mike Riazzi (MCC), Leroy Kinard
(First Academy), Richard Pettus (Villages), Grant
Grantham (Liberty), Dominick Ciao (Tampa Berke-
ley) and Sid Wheatley (Northview).
Bristol led the Northeast Florida area with 11 in-
terceptions this season and was up against Mike
West (Dixie County), Nelson Aghlor (Berkeley),
Travis Banks (NFC), Brian Grove (King's Academy),
Laron Moore (Crescent City), Rashawn Scott (MCC),
Albert Rose (First Academy), RJ Kuck (Villages),
Maurice Russell (Fort Meade) and Calvin Prior (Port
St. Joe).

careers in the artistic side of digital
media design as well as the actual
development of digital media in-
cluding optimized digital images,
web-based printable documents,
HTML and Flash based websites,
computer graphics and interactive
computer animations. Spring classes,
beginning Jan. 5, that can be taken
toward the degree include Computer
Applications, Multimedia Program-
ming, Computer Assisted Graphic
Design, Fundamentals of Web De-
sign, Basic Drawing I, Basic Design I,
and Business Communications. Ad-
ditional courses will be offered in
the summer and fall terms.
"Students will learn how to com-
municate effectively with multime-
dia in a digital world," said Marie
Guest, Instructor and Department
Chair of Department Chair of Social
Science, Business, Education, and
Digital Technology at NFCC. "Stu-
dents will train on professional level
software while learning basic artis-
tic design, computer ethics, webpage
development, electronic image edit-
ing and optimization, computer ani-
mation, basic photography, business
concepts, and more."
In addition to the new A.S. Degree,


NFCC is also offering five embedded
college credit certificates in digital
media / multimedia. The short-term
programs can be completed in one
year or less and are designed to
equip students with a skill set for
immediate employment or job ad-
vancement. Students can choose

Backyard

speaks
By Jessica Basham,
FWC
If you've ever
wondered which
bird sings the fa-
miliar, loud "doo-
dalee, doodalee,
doodalee" song, it
is one of the most
common back-
yard birds in
Florida, the Car- P
olina wren.
The Carolina
wren is a lively lit- k1
tle bird that often
fluffs itself into a puffy,
round shape to appear
larger than its 6- or 7-
inch body. For its size,
the male has one of the
loudest voices of all
birds.
This songbird can sing
27 to 47 different tunes
and usually sings one re-
peatedly before switch-
ing to another. The
male and female often
sing together. If the
birds feel scared or an-
gry, their voice descends
in sound, and they give a
sharp "chirp!"
Carolina wrens are
rusty brown on their up-
per body and wings and
are light orange to tan on
their underbelly. They
have a white line above
their eyes, almost like an
eyebrow.
These birds aren't shy
around humans, so they
build their nests almost
anywhere - in shrubs,
tree cavities, vines, pot-
ted plants and even
empty boxes or mailbox-


Safari: Little wren


with a big


es.
When a female wren
chooses her lifetime
mate, she also gets to
pick a nest. That is be-
cause the male wren
builds several nests
made of sticks and
twigs, usually near the
ground. Once the fe-
male has picked her fa-
vorite, she fills it with
soft things like grasses,
leaves, fur, hair, feathers
- whatever she can find.
Female wrens lay three
to seven dull-white eggs
dusted with brown
speckles. The small end
of the egg usually has
thicker brown spots that
create a ring around the
egg.
When the eggs hatch
about two weeks later,
sometimes the male
feeds and cares for the
young while the female
goes to another nest and
lays another set of eggs.
These wrens can lay sev-
eral clutches of eggs a
year. The babies leave


;voice
the nest 12 to 16
days later.
Carolina
wrens like to
hide in shrubs,
F1 vines and
hedges. They
especially like
elderberry
bushes, berry
D plants and Vir-
ginia creeper
E vines. They
are always
moving and are
quick to stick
their beaks into cracks
and crevices of tree
branches and tree trunks
looking for tasty spiders
and other bugs. They
also love seeds and will
visit bird feeders several
times throughout the
day, especially if there
are sunflower seeds,
peanuts or suet inside.
When you go out to
listen and look for the
Carolina wren, do not
forget to grab binoculars
and a bird journal, if
you have started one. To
become a bird detective
and junior birder, visit
floridabirdingtrail.com
and select "Birding Re-
sources" in the left-hand
menu; then click on
"Wings Over Florida."
That is where you can
learn about the Junior
Birder Program and can
download a copy of the
Bird Detective checklist.

marsh

By Bob Wattendorf, FWC
In classic Greek mythology, the Hy-
dra was a marsh serpent that had
nine heads to start with, but each
time one was cut off, two more grew
back until Hercules slew it.
Hydra makes a rather fitting root
word for Hydrilla verticillata, a sub-
mersed, nonnative plant (from India)
that first appeared in Florida in the
late 1950s, rapidly spreading through-
out much of the state.
Hydrilla has been described as "the
perfect aquatic weed" because of its
tolerance to conditions that prevent
other native plants from flourishing,
including its tolerance of low light,
high turbidity and various salinities
and nutrient conditions. Moreover, it
can spread through fragmentation,
sexual reproduction (seeds), root-like
tubers and turions (bud-like struc-
tures formed where leaves attach to
the stems).
Hydrilla was introduced to Florida
as an aquarium plant. With few nat-
ural bio-controls, such as native in-
sects or diseases, the plant can rapid-
ly occupy nearly the entire water-col-
umn of shallow lakes. It can affect
navigation, water storage and water
flow, which is needed to prevent
flooding. It can spread on boat mo-
tors or trailers even after it appears to
be thoroughly dried out, and it can
survive the virtually dry soils of de-
watered lakes and rapidly take over
when the lake re-floods.
Chemical and other control efforts,
including biological and mechanical
approaches, cost millions of state dol-
lars annually.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) is creat-
ing a long-term black bass manage-
ment plan, and one of the critical as-
pects to consider is that of aquatic
plant management and how to deal
with exotic plants such as hydrilla. In
2008, the legislature moved invasive
plant management from the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection to
the FWC. An intra-agency task force
is actively working to develop new
plans and processes for managing hy-
drilla.
What makes invasive plant man-
agement so complicated is that hy-
drilla can benefit recreational fisheries
and waterfowl populations and even
help support endangered species such
as the snail kite. On the other hand,


serpent
conservation philosophies and the
economics of attempting to manage it
provide a compelling reason to try to
keep it out of new areas and control it
before it harms navigation, flood con-
trol, potable and irrigation water sup-
plies, recreation and the beauty of
lakes.
A recent meeting dealing with man-
agement plans for hydrilla on Lake
Tohopekaliga, co-hosted by the FWC
and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice, highlighted some of the contro-
versy.
"Lake Toho contains large amounts
of hydrilla, which can cause naviga-
tion problems and limit access to
boaters," said Bill Caton, the FWC's
Invasive Plant Management Section
leader. "This plant also provides an
abundant food source and habitat
used by a nonnative variety of apple
snail that lives in the lake." In turn,
the snail is eaten by snail kites, which
are among the most endangered birds
in Florida, making Lake Toho one of
the few areas in the state where kites
can find plenty of food.
Consequently, the FWC and the US-
FWS will adjust when and where hy-
drilla is treated so enough snails will
be available when kites nest next
spring. The Audubon Society and the
FWC want to protect snail kites. Oth-
er stakeholders, like the Florida
Freshwater Fisheries Coalition, want
enough submersed plants to provide
good fish habitat but also open areas
for anglers to catch fish. If too much
hydrilla is left untreated, plant bio-
mass could affect flood control.
Now that biologists have laid out
these pros and cons of hydrilla treat-
ment in various situations, the FWC
is reviewing the first draft of the
Black Bass Management Plan
(MyFWC.com/BassPlan_Survey).
In the meantime, does anyone
know where we can find another
Hercules to take on our Hydra-illa is-
sue? You can contribute to the dia-
logue by completing a brief survey on
aquatic plant management at
www.SurveyMonkey.com / s / bbmp_p
lants.

FWC wants
I at public's input

S about more
daylight
alligator hunting
Submitted
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
-H Commission (FWC)
wants to know what
Floridians think about
providing more day-
light-hunting hours to al-
ligator hunters. The pub-
lic can comment via an
online survey.
The FWC is exploring
the idea of additional
EET daylight-hunting hours
for the state's recreation-
al alligator hunting sea-
son, which runs Aug. 15
- Nov. 1 each year.
TON AVE Currently, legal hours
for alligator hunting are
from one hour before
sunset to one hour after
PPING sunrise.
OPNG "We've received input
from the alligator hunt-
ing community and are
now looking for input
from anyone who is in-
terested in this issue,"
said Harry Dutton, FWC
alligator-management
program coordinator.
People can provide in-
put by going to
MyFWC.com / Alligator.
The Commission will
take this input into con-


sideration when decid-
ing whether any change
is warranted. Anyone
with additional ques-
tions regarding this issue
may call Dutton at 850-
488-3831.

MADISON - North Florida Community College is proud to feature art by NFCC student
Arielle Prevot on its holiday greeting card this year. Prevot's colorful work added a beauti-
ful and unique look to the NFCC card which will be viewed by many locally and across
the state. This is Prevot's first term at NFCC. She has had an interest in art since childhood
and is just completing her first college-level art course with NFCC art instructor Lisa Bar-
den. In addition to her art and college studies, Prevot is also participating in the intema-
tional program World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) which helps peo-
ple share sustainable ways of living by linking people who want to volunteer on organic
farms or smallholdings with people who are looking for volunteer help. Through WWOOF,
Prevot is working at Serenity Acres, a small family farm in Pinetta, Fla. Originally from
Tennessee, Prevot is working toward an Associate in Arts Degree at NFCC. In appreciation
for her contribution to the NFCC holiday greeting card design, NFCC presented Prevot
with a canvas tote bag featuring her artwork as well as copies of the greeting card.

Premature labor, which affects 1 in
8 babies every year, occurs when a
baby is born prior to the 37th week
of gestation. There are certain risk
factors that make a woman more
susceptible to giving birth
prematurely.
* Incidence of pre-term labor in a
previous pregnancy: Women who
have given birth prematurely in the
past are at a greater risk for a
preterm baby. Uterine or cervical
abnormalities may be to blame in
certain cases, but it is generally
unknown why this occurs in some
women.

factor in preterm labor. Very
young women or older women
can be at risk.
* Cigarette smoking: The
chemicals contained in cigarette
smoke can cross the placenta and
cause abnormalities that may
contribute to premature labor.
* Infection: About 40 to 50
percent of all preterm labor can
be traced to a bacterial infection.
The good news is that antibiotics
can help prevent preterm labor
that results from bacterial
infection.
* Bleeding: Any type of bleeding,
including a bleeding disorder,
could affect labor and induce it
prematurely.
* Uterine stretching:
Overdistension of the uterus has
also been linked to preterm labor
and birth.

letter



campaign



pays off

CNHI News Service
DALTON, Ga. -- Third-grader Charlie McClurg and
his classmates learned a valuable lesson this week: They
can make a difference.
The students at Westwood Elementary loved to read,
but the community didn't have a large bookstore, espe-
cially one that catered to a reading list they preferred.
Following McClurg's lead the class began a letter writ-
ing campaign to lure Books-A-Million, the third largest
book retailer in the nation, to their town.
The idea spread to other classes and even other schools
and soon Clyde Anderson had about 500 letters land on
his desk at corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Ala.
Anderson came to Westwood Elementary this week to
meet with McClurg and his classmates. He also had some
good news - Dalton was going to get its own Books-A-
Million store.
"You're a very persuasive letter-writer, and I'm very
glad to meet you," Anderson told McClurg.
Asked what role the children's letters had played in
Books-A-Millions' decision to come to Dalton, "It's the
only reason we're coming to Dalton," he responded.
"Dalton was not on our list."
Anderson said he hoped the bookstore would be open
by Christmas. For their efforts, Anderson handed each
student in McClurg's class a $25 gift certificate.
"The neat thing is that the children realize they had a
voice in this, and that one person can make a difference,"
said Debbie Reynolds, the students' teacher.
Details for this story were provided by Mark Millican,
who writes for The Dalton (Ga.) Daily Citizen.

Charlie McClurg celebrates the good news with Clyde An-
derson of Books-A-Million that his letter writing campaign
paid off. - Photo: Matt Hamilton/The Daily Citizen, Dalton, Ga.

17, at 7 p.m. The members
of the Live Oak Christian
Church are presenting a
truly unique Christmas
Program. Our goal is to
give you a smile and help
you understand the true
meaning of the Christmas
season - the Birthday of
our Lord Jesus Christ.
Join us as we watch a
father search for the true


meaning of Christmas
during a time of family
crisis. Along the way we
will have lots of fun and
laughs as we poke fun at
our country roots and the
unique way we look at the
Christmas season.Pastor
Ray Kelley and the
members of the Live Oak
Christian Church invite
you to come and join with
us for a "Yee Haw Country
Christmas." The program
will be followed by a soup
and sandwich fellowship.
The church is located at
1015 Ohio Avenue North
beside Walt's Ford.

ATTENTION
READERS
You should be cautious of calls
from interested buyers of your
advertised merchandise. If the
caller is offering you MORE
money than what you are asking
or suggest sending you a check
for more than the amount and
requesting you to cash it and
just send them back the
remaining amount
DON'T! THIS IS A SCAM!
BE CAUTIOUS, IF IT
SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE
TRUE, IT USUALLY IS.

* CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE - WWW.NFLAONLINE.COM - SERVING NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA


Dear Classified Guys,
I read your column every week so I'm
thinking you are the guys to help me
answer this question: What is it with
men and power equipment? I know
what it's like to have a shopping
habit, but my husband has his nose
in the classified every Sunday
dreaming of a new tractor, leaf blow-
er or snow blower. We got a dusting
of snow the other day and he's ready
to buy a 10hp snow blower. Do men
really need all that power
equipment or are they
just trying to escape all ,-
the indoor household '.-L
chores? I have a whole
list of things for him to do.
Can you help this lonely
indoor woman?

Cash: Only a 10hp snow blower?
Consider yourself lucky. He could be
looking for a snowplow and a new
truck to go along with it.
Carry: It sometimes seems like
power equipment is a part of the male
DNA coding. Just say the word "trac-
tor" and many guys begin to drool.
And if we can find it in the classified
for a fraction of the new cost, it sends
chills down our spine.

- (










Cash: It's kind of like what many
women or teenagers feel when they
shop at the mall. Find a Ralph Lauren
designer outfit on the clearance rack at
75% off and you're walking out of the
mall as proud as a peacock.
Carry: Do men really need all this
power equipment? Not really. But
that's not the point. It's not even that
we are trying to avoid all the inside
work. But I have to be honest. It's dif-
ficult to get excited about a meager 10-
amp vacuum.
Cash: When Makita manufactures a
15-horsepower dust buster, a hydrostat-
ic riding vacuum or a turbo-charged

washing machine, men will begin lin-
ing up to do the housework.
Carry: Our suggestion is to let your
husband have his small pleasures as
long as he holds up his end of the inside
chores. However if he's not, you can
always try to entice him into doing
housework. Consider placing the
"Craftsman" emblem on the side of the
vacuum or put all the dusting and
cleaning products in his toolbox. That
may help drive the point home.
Cash: Just be careful. If he gets too
excited about housework, you may one
day find him dusting with the power
leaf blower.


1.r-;� llz,


Circuit Breaker
As any guy can tell you, not all
power tools were created equal. If
you're buying an electric drill, circular
saw or hand grinder you want the most
power for your money. But comparing
these tools by horsepower may not give
you the best result. It's better to com-
pare your tools by looking at the
amperage. The higher the amps, the
more power it is likely to have. And
just in case you're wondering, this same
technique works for comparing kitchen
appliances.
Deep Trouble Cycle
Most guys are not known for their
cleanliness. However, when it comes
to tools, it can be a different story.
Here's a trick for cleaning all those
wrenches and screwdrivers after a
greasy job. Your wife may not like the
idea, but you can run most tools like
screwdrivers, sockets and wrenches
through your dishwasher's normal
cycle. Since most dishwashers have a
drying cycle, rust is typically not an
issue. And with the right detergent, you
won't even get any pesky spots!

Handy Rental
My husband gets along great with
our neighbor, Jim. So well, in fact,
that he often borrows his tools and
forgets to return them.
The other day we were cleaning
out the garage when Jim stopped
over to say hello. As we moved
things around, Jim noticed his weed
wacker and leaf blower on the shelf.
That's when he said to my husband,
"Hey, do you mind if I bring my
table saw over here."
Perplexed, my husband replied,
"Not at all, but why?"
Jim joked back, "I just figured its
best to have all my tools in one
spot!"

NATIONAL STUDY


Toxic chemical


found on


paper money,


cash receipts















Cash receipts and papei .. .
currency may contain toxic
chemicals, according to a national
study. - Photo: Carl Russo/The Eagle-Tribune, North Andover, Mass.

CNHI News Service
A national health study shows that cash register
receipts and paper currency can contain substantial
quantities of a potentially toxic chemical called
bisphenol or BPA for short.
The study was released Dec. 8 by the Alliance
for a Healthy Tomorrow, Safer Chemicals Healthy
Families and the Washington Toxics Coalition.
It found that BPA on money and receipts can
easily rub off on hands, and ingested by children
and adults.
The chemical is commonly found in plastic baby
bottles and the lining of canned foods. It has been
linked to breast and prostate cancer and other dis-
eases.
The results of the study underscore the need for
tougher regulations and laws restricting the use of
toxic chemicals, according to the organizations
that released it.
Researchers found that 11 of 22 thermal paper
receipts sampled in 10 states and the District of
Columbia contained "large quantities" of BPA.
The report titled, "On The Money: BPA on Dol-
lar Bills and Receipts," said that unlike BPA in
baby bottles and other products, BPA on thermal
paper isn't chemically bound in any way. It's a
powdery film on the surface of receipts, and can
easily transfer to our skin and likely to other items
that it rubs against, such as paper currency.
"Toxic chemicals like BPA that are linked to
breast cancer and other chronic diseases do not be-
long in everyday items like receipts," said Erin
Boles, associate executive director for the Massa-
chusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. "Research shows
that BPA can even interfere with the effectiveness
of chemotherapy. This is a clear example of how
our current laws are failing us and need to be up-
dated to reflect modem science."
The Massachusetts Public Health Council is
scheduled to take a vote next week on new regula-
tions that would prohibit the sale in Massachusetts
of reusable food and beverage containers for chil-
dren under 3 containing BPA, including baby bot-
tles and "sippy" cups.
The Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow wants the
ban expanded to other states.
Details for this story were provided by The Ea-
gle-Tribune, North Andover; Mass.

BBQ My Way




Smoking, barbecuing and grilling


By Dave Lobeck
CNHI News Service

While preparing to write
this column I found myself
to be in a rather "techni-
cal" mood. So let's take
advantage of that and dis-
cuss various methods of
cooking outdoors and in
the process, correct some
long standing confusion
associated with barbecue
terminology.
Trust me, you may want
to cut this column out and
keep it for future refer-
ence.
Let's talk fuel and get
one source of fuel --
Propane and natural gas.
You light it, you grill di-
rectly over it, enough said.
I use it when I need a


quick and convenient out-
door grilling experience,
which is still better than
cooking indoors. Don't get
me wrong. I love them,
and use them more fre-
quently than my other
grilling apparatuses. With
a little planning you can be
quite creative
with gas grills. Everyone
needs one.
But let's move on to
where the "culinary" rub-
ber 'meats' the road."
First, let's clearly define
some key terms, those be-
ing b.ilbc'iiii_'" and
"grilling." If you use these
terms interchangeably in
front of a person who
takes his barbecue serious-
ly, at the very least you
will get an eye-roll and


will lose all "street BBQ
cred." Not cool.
"Barbecuing" is the
process of cooking meat
over wood coals for a long
period of time at a fairly
low temperature, usually
225 to 240 degrees
Fahrenheit. It can be done
over direct heat or indirect
heat.
As an example, I have a
brick southern style BBQ.
You will see a fireplace,
and then
two black doors. I burn
hickory wood in the fire-
place, and every 45 min-
utes or so I "harvest" the
glowing coals with a coal
shovel and move them to
the fireplace, which is on
the right. The compartment
above is where the meat

Wheels?


9 yothe somddng for dot pmrkd st of uhwesg
lock u further thn www.nflaonline.com


sits, being slowly cooked
by the heat while soaking
up the smoky flavor from
the hickory charcoal.
It's an all-day event;
burning down hickory logs
to coals, then transferring
the coals with the coal
shovel - but it's a ton of
fun, and the most legiti-
mate method of making
true southern style barbe-
cued meats.
The other barbecuing
method I perform is in my
kettle grill. I set up char-
coal briquettes on one side
of the grill and then add
hickory chips or chunks,
allowing them to burn
down to charcoal.
The meat is placed on
the side with no charcoal
and the lid is closed. This


is a more conve-
nient method of
barbecuing and
the one I use
frequently. If I
fire up the brick
unit I am typi-
cally doing a lot
of meat; other-
wise, it's not worth
wasting the wood.
"Grilling" is the
process of cooking
meats quickly over direct
heat regardless of the fuel
you are using.
Typical examples would
be hamburgers, pieces of
chicken, pork chops, fish
or steaks. Although with
steaks, I sometimes barbe-
cue them and grill them.
Check out this page on my
website to see what I
mean. http://www.bbq-my-
way.com/how-to-grill-a-
steak.html. It will be the
best steak you have ever
had.
"Smoking" is a process
of slow cooking meats
with charcoal and wood at
temperatures not exceeding
200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Typically the end product
is extremely smoky. You
can also "cold smoke," but
that takes a real expertise,
and most people (including
me) won't attempt it.
In terms of the fuel used
for barbecuing or grilling,
you can go "old school"
such as when I fire up my
big brick unit and burn
logs down to glowing
coals, or you can use store-


r.ITh


~'(W~(O9M


bought char-
coal.
The charcoal
briquettes
you see in
most gro-
cery stores
(the per-
P fectly formed
black ones)
are produced
by burning a


carbon-rich ma-
terial such as
wood in a low-oxygen at-
mosphere. Other ingredi-
ents added include a bind-
ing agent, an accelerate
(such as nitrate) and an
ash-whitening agent (such
as lime) to let you know
when the briquettes are
ready for grilling or barbe-
cuing.
A newer product that is
gaining traction is "natural
lump charcoal." This is
wood that is burned down
to charcoal. It has no
fillers, binding agents or
chemicals added. It looks
like wood that has been
burned down to charcoal.
It typically lights quicker,
bums hotter, but doesn't
last quite as long as bri-
quettes.
I use them both and my
preference is to mix them
as each product has its
own positive attributes.

cue chef from Sellersburg,

Honda's Civic Si is a drastic change over the ordinary Civic. - Courtesy photo




Honda Civic Si is designed for thrills


By Derek Price
CNHI News Service
If there's such a thing as a modem-day
hot rod, this is it.
It's the Honda Civic Si, and it takes the
old-school hot-rod concept to a new and
interesting place. Just like the old Ameri-
can hot rods that grew out of California's
car culture in the 1940s, this is an afford-
able car that gets a power boost and body
modifications to save weight.
In fact, the Civic is one of the most
widely modified cars today. If you look at
the kid who pulls up next to you with
neon paint, a giant spoiler and Folgers-
can exhaust tips, he's probably driving a
Civic.
He would also be smart to save his
money and buy one of these, a souped-up
Civic Si. It's designed from the factory to
provide more thrills than an ordinary
Civic commuter car, so it actually drives
faster rather than just looking faster. It's
more than a Civic in a sideways baseball
cap.
The performance starts, as you'd expect,
with a bigger engine. It gets a 2.0-liter
four-cylinder engine that makes 197
horsepower, a big improvement over the
base Civic's 1.8-liter unit that makes 140
horses.
And it's a great engine.
With an 8,000-rpm redline, it loves to
be pushed hard and sounds fantastic at
high revs. It makes a ghostly wail that
resonates through the whole car, a kind of
ear-piercing noise that cuts straight to the
soul. It's not quiet, but people who buy
this car don't want it to be.
You could say the same thing about its
suspension. It feels like you're driving


around in a big roller skate, which is just
perfect for a car like this. If you want to
be comfortable, look elsewhere.
The Civic Si's styling takes its inspira-
tion from those rebellious teen, especially
if you opt for big stickers on the side that
say "i-VTEC DOHC" to brag about your
engine's nerdy technical specs. The look
is bold and brash in some ways, quiet and
subdued in others, which is fitting for a
commuter car that's been souped up for
track-day fun.
But should you buy it? The Volkswagen
Golf GTI is its most noteworthy competi-
tor, so let's compare:
- The GTI feels like a more upscale
car, with a nicer cabin and more usable
interior; the Civic has more hard plastics
that make it seem cheaper.
- The GTI weighs slightly more, but it
makes a bit more horsepower. The Civic
seems like you could ring more out of it
on a racetrack, with that raw, intense feel
that provides lots of driver feedback.
- The GTI feels like more of a com-
plete car, a grown-up car, compared with
the Civic's youthful, honed-down, high-
tech personality. I'd prefer the GTI on
long trips with friends and the Civic for
scooting around town by myself.
- Finally, you've got to consider the
brand's reputation. Volkswagen doesn't
have good reliability ratings, while Hon-
das are thought to be bulletproof. For a
car that is likely to be pushed hard
throughout its life, this can be critical.
Pricing starts at $22,205 for the Civic
Si Coupe, which is really impressive for
this kind of white-knuckle performance.
That's about $7,000 more than a stripped-
down base Civic, but it feels like you get


a lot more than $7,000 worth of engineer-
ing and power. It really is a huge differ-
ence.
And it's proof that America's hot rod
culture is still around. It's just turned
Japanese and covered itself in stickers.

vice, which distributes his column. He can

What was tested?
2011 Honda Civic Si Coupe with Navi-

tested (including $750 destination

Why buy it?
It's a hard-edged car that's exciting to
drive. With a super-firm suspension, pow-
erful engine and screaming exhaust note,
it's designed for driving thrills.
Why avoid it?
It attracts young drivers who want to
race it at stoplights. The styling can seem
juvenile at times.

Boots 'n BBQ cook-off and




fundraiser set for Santa Fe


Grab your hat and hang
onto it real tight! Two top
notch, highly acclaimed
entertainers head the bill at
the third annual Santa Fe
College Boots 'n BBQ
cook-off and fundraiser
Feb. 10-12.
Songwriter/guitarist Jim-
mie Van Zant is one of the
headliners. A native of
Jacksonville, his musical
style is country, rockabilly,
and Southern rock.
As proclaimed on Van
Zant's Myspace page, "...
you just know that if Jim-
mie is singing', preaching'
and layin' down the law,
Southern Rock Music is
alive and well. Southern
rock is the staple of today's
country music and many
are looking for what Jim-
mie has naturally."
He has made three al-
bums: "Southern Comfort,"
"My Name is Jimmie," and
- the latest - "Cut from
the Same Cloth." Don't
miss Van Zant's perfor-
mance at 3 p.m. Saturday,
Feb. 12.
Boots 'n BBQ's other
stellar performer is Alex
Ortiz. He is a stand-up co-
median who has headlined
at The Apollo, Funny
Bones, and The Improvs.
He's been on Comedy Cen-
tral's Premium Blend, Lati-
no Laugh Festival, and was
"Showtime at the Apollo"
TKO Comedy Champion
of 2002.
A multi-talented former
Chicago fireman, Ortiz has
recently been filming a
children's sitcom called
"Chefsters." It shows kids
how to cook nutritional but
fun foods, like healthier
versions of cheeseburgers
and pizza. He also ap-
peared in another children's
television series, "The
Mystery Of."
Ortiz will do several per-
formances; when the times
are set they'll be announced
at www.bootsnbbq.com.
There's plenty of the
best, most scrumptious,
down home eatin' you can
imagine along with the
great entertainment at
Boots 'n BBQ. More than
70 professional barbecue
teams cook their best meats
at Florida's most fun winter
weekend on the Bradford
County Fairgrounds, just
an hour from Jacksonville
and 30 minutes from
Gainesville.
This year's cook-off is
the Florida Bar-B-Que As-
sociation State Champi-
onship for 2011, one of
three FBA Triple Crown
Series contests, and a Jack
Daniel's World Champi-
onship Invitational Barbe-
cue qualifier event.
In addition to sizzling,
fragrant barbecued beef,
pork and chicken you'll
find mouthwatering cakes
so moist and light you'll
slap your momma.
But Boots 'n BBQ is
also about the students of
Bradford County - and
raising money to fund
scholarships so they can at-
tend Santa Fe College.
SF Boots 'n BBQ is an
important event in Brad-
ford County, where the
spirit of community is
strong. It brings together
the best down-home bakers
and candy makers. Recipes
that have been handed
down in families through
generations are used to
craft delectable sweets to
be sold - with all the pro-
ceeds going for scholar-
ships.
A new fundraiser this
year is Kiss the Pig, a con-


test with a twist. Instead of
the loser kissing a pig, the
winner gets to do it! Eight
prominent Bradford Coun-


ty citizens are competing
with each other to see who
gets to smooch the pig.
Whoever brings in the
most votes/money wins.
The roster of candidates is
at www.bootsnbbq.com.
Each vote is $5; vote early
and vote often - ballot
box stuffing is encouraged.
And all the funds go for
scholarships.
SF Boots 'n BBQ has
plenty of family fun. There
are bounce houses, trains,
a kiddie tractor pull, and a
kiddie arcade with crafts
and face painting. There's
also tethered hot air bal-
loon rides and a petting
zoo.
Thursday night features
a gospel sing. Friday night
has a "Starke Idol" contest,
and Saturday brings a
"Minute to Win It" type
event where members of
the local fire department
face off against their peers
from the police department
in a Guns and Hoses con-
test. Santa Fe College
cheerleaders will perform
and some SF athletes will
do games and sessions
with the kids.
There's a bike ride, too.
Cyclists can ride either a
25 mile or a 55 mile
course. The cycle entry fee
includes festival admis-
sion, a T-shirt, a number,
and a BBQ meal after-


wards. The cost is $35 un-
til Feb. 8; $40 after that -
all part of the fundraising
for Bradford County stu-
dents.
The 2011 festival runs 5-
9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10,
5-10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11
and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Satur-
day, Feb. 12 at the Brad-
ford County Fairgrounds,
rain or shine. Admission is
$5 per day.

BANK REPO'S. New car and truck sales have been boosted lately because of factory
rebate programs and interest rate buy downs and consequently, used car sales are lagging.
"In an effort to increase our pre-owned business" stated Ashley Carter, General Manager,
"we have made some unbelievable purchases from Banks and Credit Unions which will
allow us to sell these vehicles to the public for literally thousands of dollars below the retail
market and book value,"

THIS LOCATION was chosen for this unprecedented sales event. Rountree Moore
Toyota is more than equipped to handle a sale of this magnitude.

FIVE DAYS ONLY has been allocated for this event. Wednesday - Monday, December
15th - 20", Sale hours are: 9am - 7pm Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday and
9am -5pm on Saturday.
GUARANTEED FINANCING* is the by-word for this event. No credit application will
be refused and all trade-ins will be accepted. "In fact, we will give a minimum of $8,000
for your trade or pay your first 3 payments. Drive it in, Push it in or Pull it in. We don't
care." Ashley Carter, General Manager stated.

$55 DOWN AND $95 PER MONTH** is what most people want. Rountree Moore
Toyota is determined to do just that. "We want everyone to be comfortable with their
car note and our job is to get them there, no matter what it takes", stated Ashley Carter,
manager at the dealership. "We have what almost anyone wants: Sedans, Coupes, SUV's
and trucks. We even have a few Cargo and Work Vans at just pennies on the retail dollar
for this sale."

REBUILDING CREDIT WITH

GUARANTEED CAR LOANS
ROUNTREE MOORE TOYOTA - COLUMBIA COUNTY, FLORIDA.
This weekend, Rountree Moore Toyota in Lake City will be presenting
an opportunity to residents of Columbia County that is unheard of in the
automobile industry. In short; on Wednesday, December 15h; Thursday,
December 16"'; Friday, December 17h; Saturday, December 181h and Monday,
December 20h, Rountree Moore Toyota will have special automotive finance
bankers on the premises to offer GUARANTEED FINANCING* to everyone.
This includes people who experienced messy divorces, experienced extremely
bad credit problems, have had a repossession and even bankruptcy. No
one will be turned away. Ashley Carter, General Manager for Rountree Moore
Toyota explained: "Daily we see people who need a car or truck in order to
work. They have had a string of bad luck for one reason or another and cannot
get financed, Basically, they are often hung out to dry. We have gone to great
lengths to arrange bank rate financing for everyone in this situation. Basically,
all one needs to bring to the dealership is proof of employment, a social security
number and a paid utility bill. Our onsite financial specialists will take it from
there. Often times, we can finance people in as little as an hour or two and send
them home in a quality previously owned car or truck or in many cases a new
car or truck.,"
DOWN PAYMENT QUESTIONS are the most common asked when
purchasing a car or truck. Ashley Carter, General Manager, has permission to
offer a down payment of just $55 to qualified customers during this special
program.

HOW MUCH PER MONTH? Our banking specialists have a specific formula
that will allow you to spend a certain amount of money on a car note that will
not burden your monthly budget. In other words, Rountree Moore Toyota will
adjust your monthly payments to whatever you can afford based upon your
vehicle choice.

RARELY, IF EVER IS THIS OPPORTUNITY offered to as many people
as it will be this weekend. Rountree Moore Toyota has brought in additional
inventory for this program. Cars and trucks from as little as $995** to as much
as $35,000 will be available to participants, guaranteeing everyone a ride.
