Partnership for Growth ended the year with a bang,

hearing congratulatory comments from Dennis Epps,

with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University

The Partnership held its last meeting for this year

Thursday, Nov. 17. Partnership for Growth is a Habersham

Chamber of Commerce ad hoc consortium of government,

business and community leaders which has been meeting

bimonthly seeking ways to incubate economic growth in

Habersham County.

Epps facilitated an Oct. 22, 2010, Partnership meeting

which helped lay the groundwork for the group’s collaborative

efforts.

Just more than a year later, Epps complimented the

group on hanging in and continuing to work together.

“I’m very proud of you,” Epps said, noting it very seldom

happens that way. “More often, similar groups discontinue,

with little or nothing accomplished.”

Epps asked what the Partnership has accomplished.

Fledgling airport authority assessing costs, revenue

By DONALD FRASER

With power comes cost.

The Habersham County Airport

Commission’s transition to

becoming a more autonomous

Airport Authority also means

the authority must become more

self-sustaining.

Authority members gathered

in a called Nov. 17 meeting to

try to fi gure out what avenues

for revenue generation are open

for them. The authority is also

assessing just what its actual

monthly operating expenses are.

In the past, the airport commission

relied on county government

to manage routine airport

operating expenses, including

arranging a contract for Jim Tatum

as the airport’s long-time

fi xed base operator. That contract,

essentially by default, put

Tatum in the position of airport

manager.

Habersham County Commission

approved sending local legislation

passed during the 2011

session of the General Assembly

which converted the airport

commission into an authority.

During the past months, county

government has been transferring

airport property ownership,

hangar leases and Tatum’s contract

and other records, to the

authority.

Because the county had broad

agreements with some contractors,

while other airport maintenance

work was performed

by county personnel, authority

members have been scratching

their heads trying to lock down

costs for things as simple as

mowing and bushhogging airport

property.

Other expenses include the

terminal’s monthly costs for utilities

and utility expenses for the

runway, as well as maintenance

expenses for pavement repairs

and striping.

The authority is also examining

which operating costs have

been part of Tatum’s contract.

One indirect benefi t for the

airport has been its insurance

expenses were included under the

umbrella of the county’s policy,

said Jason Tinsley, assistant county

manager/fi nance director.

Hangar lease changes are not

likely in the near future since

the fi rst batch of 20-year term

leases does not come up for renewal

until 2016. That is a roadblock

to one potential source of

increased revenue.

The authority does receive an

annual $150,000 appropriation

from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The money is used

for maintenance and operation

expenses.

The overarching question, according

to Tim Turner, is “what

do you want the airport to look

like in fi ve years?” He was appointed

the airport’s fi rst offi cial

manager by the authority during

its Sept. 12 regular monthly

meeting.

Turner was recently appointed

to the authority. His April

2011 application stated he has a

25-year career in airport management

and planning.

At the September meeting,

Chair Dick Sergent said, “We’re

not going to get things done unless

we have a focal point [during

transition to an authority].

What we expect is he [Turner]

will lead us in the nuts and bolts

of what we need to accomplish.”

“We can’t cut expenses, so we

have to raise revenue,” said authority

member Rob Ginn.

ramp fees and tie-down fees

came in for discussion.

Currently, Tatum has to go to

Discussion also included relocating

Turner said he is checking

into the possible use of fuel

Airport construction plans

include relocating the airport’s

Tinsley told the authority

$300,000, the county’s 2.5 percent

portion of payment for airport

improvements, is tucked away in

an escrow account. The funding

is from a 2003 Special Purpose

Local Option Sales Tax.

Short- to long-term plans for

airport construction include a

new terminal building, a new

airplane tie-down area and a

parallel taxi strip running the

is $24 million, according to the

county’s fi ve-year capital improvements

plan, with the bulk

of expenses paid by the federal

government. Habersham and

Georgia Department of Transportation

would each contribute

2.5 percent.

What work is fi rst done depends

on how much funding is

released by the FAA.

On Nov. 17, both houses of

Congress approved and sent to

President Obama three spending

bills totaling $182 billion.

The bills will fund major science

agencies and fi ve cabinet departments,

including Transportation,

for fi scal year 2012. The

federal government’s fi scal year

began Oct. 1.

The funding is for a single

year and does not provide a

Federal Aviation Administration,

viewed as necessary to ensure

long-term fi nancial stability

for major projects.

Tinsley said he would prepare

By JONATHAN ARENA

Several Baldwin residents

who pay city taxes

but do not receive city services

have requested they

be de-annexed from the

city limits, but a problem

with the original property

annexation has delayed

the process at the federal

level.

Billy Smith, who has

lived in the Apple Pie Ridge

subdivision since 2005, said

he and some of his neighbors

in the subdivision are

within the city limits, but

do not receive city services

such as water, sewer and

police/fire protection. He

has received Baldwin tax

bills since 2006.

Smith talked to thencity

administrator Jerry

Presley about the problem,

but said no action was ever

taken before Presley resigned

in February 2011. In

June, Smith addressed the

city council at a meeting to

request de-annexation.

“I tried to tell them,

‘Look, I’m here because

you’re sending me taxes

and we’re not getting anything

from you,’” Smith

said.

Smith’s concerns are

twofold. First, he said it’s

not right he and other

Apple Pie Ridge residents

in the Baldwin city limits

must pay city taxes if they

do not receive city services.

Alto has the water rights

for that area, and Baldwin

does not provide sewer services

there, either.

Second, Smith says public

safety personnel are

confused as to who is supposed

to respond to which

properties in Apple Pie

Ridge. “I’ve had the [Baldwin]

policemen stop at

the house and ask, ‘do you

know which houses we’re

supposed to go to?’” Smith

said.

Because some properties

in the subdivision are

in the city limits and some

are not, “they don’t know

which house they’re supposed

to service.”

Smith said Banks County

responds to 911 calls

from his house and others

in Apple Pie Ridge, even

though some are technically

in the Baldwin city

limits.

Several council members

said they would be

more than willing to vote

to de-annex Smith’s property

and several of the

other properties once all

the proper paperwork is in

order.

“As soon as it [the required

paperwork] can get

done I’m happy to vote on

it,” said council member

Jeff Parrish at a meeting

Oct. 10. “You’re not being

serviced, and I think you

[shouldn’t] be in the city.”

But another problem has

arisen, this one with the

original annexation paperwork.

According to Mayor

Jerry Neace, the process

for annexing the Apple Pie

Ridge properties into the

city was never completed

properly in the first place.

“To the best of my

knowledge, we have one set

of documents that didn’t

get submitted for the annexation,”

Neace said.

This was a submission to

Alan Nesmith, Community Newspapers

Inc. regional publisher and

publisher of The Northeast Georgian,

will moderate the debate.

Questions can be emailed to

WCON and/or to each of the publishers

of the newspapers represented.

A few questions will be called in

to WCON and prerecorded. All questions

will be screened.

The debate format includes a oneminute

introduction from the moderator,

followed by a two-minute opening

from each candidate. The name

of the first candidate speaking will

be drawn from a hat. Questions will

begin after the opening statements.

Responses will be timed. The limit

will be 45 seconds per question per

candidate. Candidates will rotate in

At the end of the debate, each candidate

will have two minutes for closing

remarks. Whichever candidate

gave the first two-minute opening

the U.S. Department of Justice

that must be submitted

with any annexation or

de-annexation to ensure a

city isn’t unfairly changing

voting districts for any

particular group.

According to City Attorney

David Syfan, the

DOJ “has to approve de-annexation

in that when you

change the boundaries of a

municipality you’re in effect

also indirectly changing

the voting district of

the city.”

“For example,” he continued,

“if there was a

rogue city out there trying

to de-annex all the property

owned by African

Americans in the city, then

obviously there would be a

discriminatory intent going

on. [The DOJ] would

probably deny it under the

Voting Rights Act.”

Syfan said there are not

usually any problems with

Baldwin’s annexation or

de-annexation requests,

mainly because the city

does not have a very high

percentage of minority

residents.

Neace said the DOJ was

never properly notified

when the Apple Pie Ridge

properties were annexed

into the city, and therefore

cannot go through the process

to give approval for deannexation.

“It’s an assumption,

since nobody can find [re-

cords of the notification],

that the Department of Justice

was never notified,”

Neace said. “I’m trying to

get all the info together so

the city attorney can start

the process.”

“Being incomplete does

not void the annexation,”

Neace added. He said once

the DOJ gives approval for

the original annexation,

the city can begin the deannexation

process.

Neace and others at the

city are trying to locate all

of the proper paperwork,

including the actual plat of

the subdivision, to submit

to the DOJ to finalize the

annexation process. At an

October meeting, he said

they are having trouble

finding the original plat

– all they have now is a tax

map – but they have to have

the original plat to send to

the DOJ.

“We can only go as fast

as the person that we have

to answer to,” he said. “In

this case, we answer to the

Department of Justice. We

can only go as fast as they

will let us go.”

Most current members

of the Baldwin City Council

have publicly said they

would vote to de-annex

Smith and the others.

“I’ve publicly said I’m

in favor of it,” said Parrish.

“Those outlying areas,

if we can’t properly

“We said in a meeting,

we don’t have any problem

with that situation,” said

council member Robert Bohannon.

“We’re not providing

any service over there.

It’s not fair and it’s a safety

issue.”

Smith said he is frustrated

with how long the

process has taken, and the

fact that he and other Apple

Pie Ridge residents pay

taxes for services they do

not receive.

“The bottom line is people

have been charged taxes

here for a number of years,

and never were properly

A few things for which I’m grateful

Iknow there’s never more

emphasis put on being

thankful than during

this month, and more

specifi cally this week, each

year. I thought of devoting

my column to something

other than the obvious

“give thanks” topic as a

sort of interlude from the

oft-repeated theme.

But then I thought

just how often I forget to

give thanks for so many

things in my life, and how

important it really is to

be thankful. So I decided

to take the opportunity to

publicly disseminate some

of my gratitude.

So here are just a very

few of the things I’m so

very grateful for:

• Food. This cannot be

emphasized enough. I am

thankful for food. All of it.

Even the stuff I don’t like

so much, I’m thankful for.

Sometimes people ask why

I don’t have a girlfriend

right now, what with the

rugged good looks and undeniable

charm; a big part

Heart pumping, mind

racing in preparation

for an unimaginable

adrenaline rush, I

maneuver myself into the

optimum position. I notice

everyone else is doing the

same. Tennis-shoed runner

stances all around me.

I remember I am not nor

ever was a skilled runner.

Somehow I have to reach

the goal in record time. I

replay the scenario in my

head making note of my

fi rst checkpoint. I can do

this!

Then, as if magic had

something to do with it,

There was a lot of

outrage and indignation

last week among

the good government

types over media reports

that Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle

had received a $5,000

weekend golf outing from

lobbyists for a healthcare

outfi t called Cancer Treatment

Centers of America

(CTCA).

In addition to that Oct.

12 round of golf, Cagle

was gifted with a cocktail

party and two nights’

lodging at The Cloister on

• Music. Playing,

writing and listening

to various

music is a big part

of my life. Music

is an awesome

gift, one I can

enjoy with others

or by myself. A

good thing, too‚ as

those close to me

(in proximity as well as in

relation) know I whistle

more than the average

human, and my leaving the

room is probably one of the

things THEY are thankful

for. But the music is always

in my head and sometimes

it escapes.

• Apple computers. This

is the fi rst Thanksgiving

think it’s fi tting to express

my appreciation for the devices

college. Well, it

got higher anyway.

Thanks, Mr. Jobs.

• Guns. Because

whether you’re in

favor of gun rights

or gun control,

they’re just plain

fun.

• Caffeinated

drinks. They,

along with midnight

McDonald’s

runs, got me

through college.

• “Community.” No, not

the friends and connections

around us, though I

am grateful for that, too.

I mean the NBC television

show, one of the rare

examples of true comedic

genius in our time.

• Cookie Dough Ice

Cream. You’d think this

would fall under “food,”

but really, it deserves its

own category. It’s like a

party in your mouth.

• Anything-other-than-

why anyone was

outraged at this.

This kind of gladhanding

has been

going on for years

among the politicians

that the

voters elect to the

(“pertaining to long

word better embodies

the quality it describes.

• My job, and my coworkers,

at The Northeast

Georgian, which let me

write something like this

and call it “work.”

More than anything,

however, I am thankful

for my relationship with

God, to whom my gratitude

for anything on this

earth ultimately belongs,

and without whose love I

would be “of all men most

miserable.”

I know we all have

Submitted

ROGERS SWORN IN AS NORTHEAST GEORGIA’S

NEWEST STATE REPRESENTATIVE

ATLANTA – State Rep. Terry Rogers (R-Clarkesville) was sworn into office Friday, Nov. 18, as the

new state representative for House District 10. He won a special election to fill the seat vacated

by Rep. Rick Austin (R-Demorest) on Nov. 8. “It is an honor and a privilege to be sworn into office

representing Habersham and White counties,” said Rogers. “I have already been hard at work

talking with people, but it’s nice to now be able to do so in an official capacity. I look forward

to making certain the voice of the people of Northeast Georgia is heard at the state capitol.”

Above, Georgia State Supreme Court Justice David E. Nahmias gave the oath of office to Rogers,

as his wife, Laura, stood next to him in support.

particular item I was shopping for was

well in stock by the time I got there.

Once I emerged from that area, the

rest of the store appeared to have been

hit by a hurricane. This is how I know I

missed the mad-dashing.

Literally every well-discounted video

game and DVD was spoken for. But, there

were other deals to be had. Some $4 pajamas.

A book my husband really, really,

really wanted. (He was my Black Friday

shopping partner, so unfortunately there

was no hiding it from him.) A few other

$5 bargains.

As we stood in line at 1 a.m. to check

out with our stash, I noticed people all

Crawford From Page 4A

handle their mix of rail

and related transportation

facilities. I have no doubt

it was an educational journey

for the speaker.

Even though some have

questioned the propriety

of what Cagle, Ralston and

dozens of other legislators

do each year, what they do

is permissible under Georgia

law. It is all perfectly

legal.

Every state surrounding

Georgia puts

limitations on the gifts an

elected official can receive

from individual lobbyists.

South and North Carolina

allow no lobbyist gifts to

lawmakers.

In Georgia, by contrast,

there are no limits on

what a legislator can accept

from lobbyists. None

whatsoever.

This has been the case

for a long time.

When Sonny Perdue

established GOP control

of the governor’s office for

the first time in more than

a century, one of the first

things he tried to accomplish

was an upgrading

of the state’s ethics law

that included a limitation

on lobbyist gifts. Perdue

proposed a limit of $50 on

the gifts legislators could

accept.

The governor’s efforts

to write that restriction

into law went nowhere

because of the implacable

opposition of the House

speaker at the time, Glenn

Richardson. Richardson,

who later would resign

from the General Assembly

after his affair with

a female lobbyist was

exposed, insisted the gift

limitation be stripped

from Perdue’s bill.

Richardson was so

adamant about removing

the gift ban even Perdue’s

House floor leader, Rep.

Jay Roberts (R-Ocilla),

voted in committee to

carry out Richardson’s

wishes.

After Richardson was

forced from the Legislature

in disgrace, his

successor picked up right

where the former speaker

left off.

Ralston, who sponsored

his own rewrite

of the state’s ethics law,

said he also was flat-out

opposed to any limitation

of any kind on the freebies

lobbyists could give to

lawmakers. It was sufficient

merely to file public

reports disclosing these

gifts, Ralston contended.

“I trust the people of

this state to make those

judgments,” he said. “I’m

comfortable with letting

the people make the determination.

They know what

to do.”

Ralston knew his people

around the store sitting down. Camped

out for the next round of deals to hit in

the later morning. Now, that’s dedication.

I can’t tell you at this point whether I

will camp out for something. Most likely

not. I will admit, though, like most Black

Friday fanatics might do, I will heavily

weigh the pros and cons of any actions I

might take in order to bring home my top

Black Friday prize.

And if the pros happen to outweigh the

cons, you just might see me sitting on the

floor somewhere… tennis shoes and game

face on.

well. Georgia voters have

consistently indicated that

ethically questionable

behavior does not seem to

bother them.

There have been numerous

media reports in

recent years of the meals,

drinks and other perks

lobbyists for entities like

Cancer Treatment Centers

and Delta Air Lines have

given to legislators. None

of the lawmakers involved,

as best I can determine,

ever lost an election because

they accepted these

gifts.

Was it a surprise Cagle

has become the latest

political figure to be given

an expensive junket by

lobbyists? It shouldn’t

have been.

Do the voters even care

about any of this? They

don’t appear to.

Legislators and other

elected officials will continue

to accept favors and

freebies from lobbyists

because their constituents

let them. In the end, it’s

only the voters who have

the power to put a stop to

this practice.

Habersham BOE hears report in Costley’s final meeting

By E. LANE GRESHAM

In his final appearance at

a Habersham County Board

of Education meeting, held

Nov. 14, Superintendent

Robert “Buddy” Costley

gave several reports.

Under finance, Costley

said the system would

have more than projected

remaining after completion

of the new Habersham

Central High School and

renovations at Habersham

Ninth Grade Academy.

These projects are “99.9

percent complete,” said

Costley. “We are projecting

close to $1.6 million remaining

after this project

is done. What that means

to this board is you will

have fulfilled your bond

obligations; this is good

news not just for the board

but for our taxpayers.”

Also in the finance report,

Costley said the system

is on track with revenues

and expenditures and

Special Purpose Local Option

Sales Tax collection

remains high.

For the month ending

Oct. 31, the general fund

balance was ($3,070,912.13),

ad valorem tax revenue

was $700,613.47; intangible

tax revenue was $10,646.04;

Education Local Option

By KIMBERLY BROWN

During the called

Habersham County Board

of Education meeting held

Wednesday, Nov. 16, the

board discussed ongoing

security concerns at the

new Habersham Central

High School and HVAC

problems at the school.

Regarding security,

Habersham County School

System Maintenance Director

Denise Gunn said

exterior doors at the high

school are left unlocked

during the day “to accommodate

student flow between

buildings and not

have them be late for a

class.”

“I’ve always been concerned

because we have

no security shack,” she

said. “[Principal Jim Van

Hooser] has also expressed

his concern. Anybody can

drive onto that campus and

walk into that school. You

hope somebody’s going to

see them, but how do you

know?”

“I feel we need a security

shack,” Gunn continued.

“I feel we’re going to have

an incident where a child

is going to cut school, and

God forbid they’re going to

have an accident and lose

their life. And then we’re

going to have parents that

say, ‘But they were under

your care and responsibility.’

I ask that we build

a security shack. I see no

reason we didn’t have one

built to begin with.”

Gunn said the exterior

doors were prepped to

have an electronic system

where the doors locked five

minutes after class started,

and five minutes before

class began again, they’d

unlock.

“I don’t have that cost

factor,” she said. “I don’t

know why they pulled that

out and decided not to do

it.”

Interim School Superintendent

Larry Hill agreed

Sales Tax revenue was

$550,412.90; SPLOST revenue

was $550,412.90; and

alcohol tax revenue was

$26,257.91.

“For the fourth straight

month, I have excellent

news to bring you. We have

the highest SPLOST revenue

probably since I’ve

been in Habersham County,”

he said. “It looks like

the sales tax revenue is

back; we have a four-month

trend.”

In the superintendent’s

report, Costley said the

annual SPLOST Audit

was complete with no findings

and the official report

would be presented at the

December board meeting.

“[Finance Officer]

Holly [Berry] tells me verbally

the auditor was very

pleased,” Costley said. “We

spend the money based on

the taxpayers’ faith in us;

what they approve in their

projects and Holly [Berry]

takes care of the books and

it seems to be going very

well.”

Under facilities, Costley

said the punch list at the

new HCHS and renovations

at HNGA are ongoing and

Facilities Manager Denise

Gunn is coordinating completion

with Charles Black

Construction Company

with Gunn’s concerns.

“All it’s going to take is

one bad wreck,” he said.

“You know kids as well as

I do. If they get a chance

to go, they’re going to go.

They’re not intending to be

hurt, but they just want to

go somewhere. I would never

want that to happen.”

Gunn also pointed out

there are restraining orders

against parents of

some of the students, and

that could be a concern.

In addressing a security

building, board member

Trent Demore said, “A lot

of times the guard is not

in the shack, they’re roaming

the campus. But I see

the need for a guard shack.

And I like the idea of the

security locks on those

doors.”

There was also discussion

about how well cameras

in the parking lots are

working.

“I’ve heard that a lot of

the cameras don’t work,”

said board Chairman Dr.

Robert Barron.

Barron said he had driven

onto the campus to pick

something up for Key Club,

went to the wrong wing,

then drove around and

went to the correct wing.

“I didn’t see anybody

and no one saw me,” he

said. “I walked out with

three big boxes of stuff.

The other day I followed a

food service truck in.”

However, Barron balked

at the idea of a security

building in front of the

and Southern Architects &

Engineers.

“If it is not fixed yet, it

is on the list and it will be

fixed,” he said. “I would remind

this board that when

we finished Fairview, some

things weren’t right six

months later, not due to bad

craftsmanship, just things

from building a big, multimillion

dollar building.”

Costley said the only

exceptions were the 10 air

conditioning units at the

new high school that are

not functioning. [See separate

story, this page].

Also in his report, Costley

said the system’s annual

Habersham United

Way fundraising drive is

complete.

“There is a special

guardian angel and her

name is Nancy Cathcart

[system-wide United Way

chairperson] and she has

a bunch of mini-angels she

works with at each school,”

he said.

Final numbers will be

reported later, he said.

Costley reported on the

SPLOST vote results and

thanked the community

for approving the continuation

of the penny sales

tax. He also thanked the

SPLOST committee for

working to let the public

school.

“We’ve got a beautiful

building, and to have a

security building in front

distracts. But over to the

left, have the entrance gate

over there. Have a security

building there.”

Gunn said the building,

if it is built, would be “architecturally

correct” to

the design of the school.

HCHS Assistant Principal

and Career, Technical

and Agriculture Education

Director Jonathan

Stribling said, “I think the

cameras are working, but

I think there are places

in the parking lot that we

don’t have cameras. You’d

be very pleased with the inside

coverage of the building.

I think the issue is the

exterior. Also, cameras are

great to tell you what happened,

but they don’t prevent

things from happening.

Having personnel out

front might prevent something

from happening.”

The board agreed the

order to look at security

would be to make sure the

cameras are working and

consider enhancing the

door locks, then consider

a guard building if it still

seems necessary.

The board also discussed

ongoing HVAC problems at

the high school.

Gunn said 10 of the

school’s 20-ton HVAC units

have coils that freeze, causing

the air conditioning to

work ineffectively. She said

air flow had to be the prob-

know about the initiative.

SPLOST passed 55.3 percent

to 44.7 percent.

“The community had

a tough choice to make

last Tuesday [Nov. 8],” he

said. “This county showed

once again a vision to support

Habersham County

Schools in one of the most

anti-tax sentiment eras

I can recall and even in

those tough times voted to

support our kids and our

school system.”

lem, because “any time a

unit freezes, it’s air flow.”

“We have 10-ton units

that are working perfectly,”

Gunn said.

Hill said Trane had

installed gas heaters on

three of the units to see if

that prevents the freezing.

“Trane does need to

correct this, and Southern

A&E [the architectural

firm that designed the

school] needs to make sure

they do it,” Hill said.

Gunn said Trane has

“bent over backwards” to

find the problem, but it’s

happening too slowly.

“We knew this problem

in April of last year, before

school ever opened,” she

said.

The board discussed

whether the units were put

together correctly in the

first place.

“When you go up to a

20-ton unit, you don’t get

LEE RECEIVES SERVICE ABOVE SELF

During the Nov. 14 Habersham County School Board of

Education meeting, BOE Vice Chair Pat Taylor presented the

Habersham Sunrise Rotary Service Above Self Award to April

Lee, In School Suspension paraprofessional/attendance clerk

for Habersham Ninth Grade Academy. Lee was nominated by

teacher Barbara Gulick and the staff at HNGA for her work with

two students who, at the beginning of the year, were below

grade level in literacy. According to Gulick, both students have

“seen amazing gains.” Taylor presented Lee with a certificate of

recognition from the Sunrise Rotary Club and a gift certificate.

because they’d be so large,”

Gunn said. “You have components

to make up that

unit. I’ve worked with my

staff and C&D Mechanical,

who did the install. I do not

think the hot gas bypass

is going to be a solution.

When we go to air conditioning,

I don’t feel good

that we have a solution.

We’ve done everything

possible. Everybody’s been

willing to work on it, from

Southern A&E, Charles

Black Construction and

us. We’ve had 12 meetings.

There is no, ‘This is the

problem.’”

Hiring a third party to

look at the problem had

been previously discussed

and approved, but it hasn’t

been done yet.

“We need to hire that

person, but we need to expect

reimbursement for

that cost,” Gunn said.

Board member Gilbert

Barrett said the board is

hiring the third party and

Southern A&E would cover

the cost.

The board directed

Gunn to work with Hill in

hiring a third party to look

into the HVAC problem.

In other business, the

board voted to table approving

a Special Purpose

Local Option Sales Tax

(SPLOST) schedule of collections

and expenditures,

because board members

had questions about the

schedule.

The schedule will be reconsidered

during the Dec.

12 regular meeting.

After approval, the

schedule will be published

in The Northeast Georgian.

NHMS BUILDERS CLUB RECOGNIZED

During the Nov. 14 Habersham County Board of Education meeting, members of the Builders

Club at North Habersham Middle School were recognized for a “Random Acts of Kindness”

project. Students traveled to the Georgia Dome on Nov. 11 to be part of the chain reaction of

compassion and kindness associated with the “Rachel’s Challenge” initiative. The NHMS Builders

Club chain had 8,000 links and was one of 11 schools chosen to carry its chain onto the

field. The linked chain from schools across Georgia was more than 10 miles long. Pictured, from

McKinzie Hogan, Hayleigh Hogan, Blake Kinney, Maddie Black and NHMS paraprofessional Julie

Local students walk in

footsteps of U.S. leaders

WASHINGTON, D.C.

– This fall, more than 200

middle school students

from across the United

States took part in a leadership

conference in

Washington, D.C. Themed

“Voices of Leadership: Reflecting

on the Past to Create

the Future,” the Junior

National Young Leaders

Conference (JrNYLC) introduced

four Habersham

County students to the

tradition of leadership

throughout American history,

while helping them to

develop their own leadership

skills.

Gracie Caudell, Maison

Clouatre and Matthew

Mixon of North Habersham

Middle School, and Anna

Davis of Tallulah Falls

School were immersed in

the nation’s capitol city Oct.

15-20. They participated in

many activities and leadership

debates throughout

the week.

“The aim of the JrNYLC

is to inspire students to

recognize their own leadership

skills, measure

their skills against those of

current and former leaders

and return home with new

confidence in their ability

to exercise positive influence

within their communities,”

said Marguerite

Regan, Ph.D., dean of Academic

Affairs for Congressional

Youth Leadership

Council (CYLC). “Young

During the six-day program,

students took part

in educational activities

and presentations and explored

relevant sites, such

as Harpers Ferry National

Historical Park in West

D.C.’s museums and memorials.

In addition to examining

notable U.S. leaders and

historic figures, students

DONALD FRASER/Staff

Dennis Epps, with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at

the University of Georgia, told Partnership for Growth to create

a community vision to facilitate business growth.

Offender

From Page 1A

ual battery in March 2010

against a person under 16

years of age.

Barrett said his department

has been checking on

Eller at night while he has

stayed at the probation office.

“We’ve mainly dealt

with him there on the property

at probation; we’ve

been checking on him,”

Barrett said. “We’ve been

doing what we can just to

keep an eye on him.”

Barrett said officers

have told Eller to move

several times recently as

he stayed in various places

around Clarkesville,

mostly in his vehicle, but

Welborn said he has not

violated the sex offender

registry.

“He doesn’t have anywhere

to go, and so he

just hangs out,” Welborn

said. “Sometimes he’ll pull

over somewhere to take a

nap, and people are suspicious.”

He said law enforcement

agencies have received several

calls from Clarkesville

residents suspicious

of Eller sleeping in his car

on the side of a street or

elsewhere around Clarkesville,

so they will check on

him and ask him to move

to another place.

Welborn also said Eller

may have a place to stay

soon. “He gave me an address

[yesterday] that he

wants me to go check for

him, so maybe he’ll have a

place to go now,” Welborn

said Tuesday. Law enforcement

personnel must check

any address where a registered

sex offender wants to

reside.

Other instances of registered

sex offenders sleeping

in the probation office

parking lot were confirmed

by Barrett, but Welborn

said those were very temporary

situations.

“There were a few, but

theirs were short term,”

Welborn said. “They were

where they just got out of

jail… they stayed there until

their addresses got verified,”

as instructed by the

probation office.

“Anytime we do have

something like that,

though,” said Welborn,

“the first thing is to always

notify everybody that’s going

to be involved, especially

like Clarkesville P.D.”

Welborn said Eller is

the longest-term case of a

homeless sex offender of

which he knows. “The prior

ones were for a couple of

days,” he said.

Both Welborn and a

spokeswoman for the Department

of Corrections

Public Affairs office said

there is no shelter or other

place around Habersham

County that will house sex

offenders. “Because most

of the shelters deal with

families, they won’t take

a registered offender on

account of that,” Welborn

said.

The state sex offender

registry recognizes four

different time periods for

sex crimes, depending on

when the crime was committed.

Anyone who committed

a sex crime before

June 4, 2003, has no restrictions.

Those who committed

a sex crime between

that date and June 30, 2006,

may not reside within 1,000

feet of a childcare facility,

school or area where minors

congregate, but have

no employment restrictions.

Between July 1, 2006, and

June 30, 2008, sex offenders

may not live or work within

1,000 feet of childcare

facilities, schools, areas

where minors congregate

or churches. And if the offense

occurred after July

1, 2008, the 1,000-foot rule

and employment restrictions

apply to all of the

previously-mentioned locations

plus libraries.

ernment and the Town of Mt. Airy,

discussion of potential consolidation

of fire services between county and

municipal governments and better

communication between local governments.

Others noted a very positive

attitude of cooperation is developing

between governments, with

water system cooperation discussions

between Baldwin and Demorest

given as an example.

Epps told the group in Habersham

County, “you have quality of life.”

That quality of life entices people, and

businesses, to want to relocate here.

The county “is in a unique period of

history” with a narrow window of opportunity,

“a moment right now when

you can determine what you will be.”

The county, because of the economic

downturn that began in 2007,

“has a moment to plan.”

While some consider the number

of governments in Habersham County

to be a liability, “it doesn’t matter

if you have seven different governments,”

but what the county needs is

“a commonly held vision,” Epps said.

Epps noted business competition

today is global and, as in October

2010, he pointed out the increasing

importance of regionalism.

South Georgia counties are cooperating

with each other to land new

businesses, Epps said. “In the ‘rust

belt’ there is multi-state cooperation

to get businesses,” Epps said.

Partnership needs “to create a

community vision that goes beyond

everybody’s election cycle. Clearly

identify what you want to do,” Epps

reiterated.

Happenings

Holidays can

be bittersweet

This Thanksgiving is

a little bittersweet for

K.C. and me. Every

holiday is difficult when

there are missing family

members and/or friends

who have been so much a

part of your lives.

It’s

been

several

years

since our

parents

passed

away.

With

time

it gets

better,

Lois

Chitwood

yet you

still miss

them and

especially

so as

Thanks-

giving and Christmas near.

This particular year

brings sweet memories

of our dear Mrs. King, a

special friend and neighbor

who passed away in

August. So as we are now

preparing for our Thanksgiving

celebration, our

heartstrings are filled with

emotions, happy and sad at

the same time. Mrs. King

was 96 years old and as

vibrant as ever.

Thanksgiving is a time

of being thankful. I’m

thankful for all the blessings

God has given me. I’m

blessed with a wonderful

husband who loves me, for

just being me. I’m thankful

for my many unseen

friends who read this

column each week and still

have a smile when meeting

me.

God bless and enjoy! “I

will extol thee, my God, O

king; and I will bless thy

name for ever and ever.

Every day will I bless thee;

and I will praise thy name

for ever and ever. Great is

the LORD, and greatly to

be praised; and his greatness

is unsearchable. One

generation shall praise thy

works to another, and shall

declare thy mighty acts. I

will speak of the glorious

honour of thy majesty, and

of thy wondrous works.

And men shall speak of the

might of thy terrible acts:

and I will declare thy greatness.

They shall abundantly

utter the memory of thy

great goodness, and shall

sing of thy righteousness.”

Psalm: 145:1-7

Since I was thinking

about Mrs. King, I thought

how fitting to honor a

friend of hers and mine,

Mrs. Lewallen, by sharing

a recipe she gave me. Mrs.

King’s church – Baldwin

Baptist – served a delicious

meal after her service. Mrs.

Lewallen made this wonderful

broccoli casserole

and naturally I just had to

have the recipe. I’m sure

y’all will love it, too.

Broccoli Casserole

1 (10-oz.) can cream of

mushroom soup

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 eggs

1-1/2 cups sharp cheddar

cheese, shredded

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup onion, finely

chopped

2 boxes frozen chopped

broccoli, thawed and

cooked tender [drain well]

15 round crackers

crushed to crumbs

1 stick butter or margarine,

melted

Grease or spray a 9x13x2inch

baking dish, set aside,

preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-size bowl,

place the soup, mayonnaise,

eggs, cheese, salt, pepper

and chopped onion; stir to

mix well and then blend in

the chopped broccoli. Pour

mixture into the prepared

baking dish. In a small

bowl, place the crushed

cracker crumbs, cover with

the melted butter and toss

to cover the crumbs well,

then scatter evenly over

the top of the casserole

and bake at 350 degrees for

about 25 to 30 minutes or

until casserole is hot and

bubbly throughout and

browned on top.

“You gotta believe” was Michala

Riggle’s refrain Nov. 11 as

she spoke to a Demorest Elementary

School assembly about her

work raising money for autism

research. Michala told the students

when it comes to helping

others, they can do anything they

put their minds to if they believe

they can.

Michala should know a thing

or two about believing in a cause.

Just 15 years old, she has spent the

last five years promoting autism

awareness and raising money to

fund autism research by selling

beaded bracelets. Her efforts have

raised more than half a million

dollars for current research and

toward a new autism center.

Michala’s younger brother,

Evan, is autistic, and in 2005 he

began participating in a study to

test an experimental treatment.

He immediately showed marked

improvement.

“I wanted the study to go on

as soon as it could, so a bunch of

other families could get the help

that we were getting,” Michala

said. “So I decided to raise that

money by selling bracelets, and

in six months we had raised over $200,000.”

At first, Michala made the bracelets herself,

selling them at $3 apiece to raise money

for the autism study. But soon others got on

board, and now thousands of people all over

the world have helped string beads for Michala’s

cause.

After helping to fund the autism study, Michala

wanted to keep going. “Then I decided

that I wanted to raise the money to build an

autism research and treatment center, and

it’s going to cost around $300 million,” she

said. The “We Believe” International Autism

Research and Treatment Center would be

located in Louisville, Ky., Michala’s hometown,

and would include a school for autistic

children as well as offering treatment.

In between making bracelets and homeschooling,

Michala travels to schools around

the country to raise awareness for the cause

and to raise money by selling bracelets. Michala

visited five other system schools besides

Demorest Elementary on her three-day

visit to Habersham County.

At Demorest Elementary, just like every

school she visits, Michala told the students

not only about her passion for helping people

affected by autism, but also that they can

make a difference and help people even at a

young age.

After her presentation, students were able

to examine the thousands of bracelets Michala

brought with her, and buy one if they

brought the money.

Two schools – Level Grove and North

Habersham – are taking Michala’s 30-Day

Challenge, in which a school receives a kit

with all the material to make 300 bracelets.

Students then assemble the bracelets and sell

them, sending the proceeds to the Michala

Riggle Beat Autism Foundation.

Erica Malcom, a special education paraprofessional

at Level Grove, said her fifthgrade

class accepted the challenge and is

hard at work making three kits’ worth of

beads – a total of approximately 900 bracelets

– to sell at the Christmas events in downtown

Clarkesville Dec. 3.

“The kids at Level Grove have been fan-

Beading to Beat Autism visits Habersham schools

Michala Riggle may only be a

teenager but she is already a world

known advocate for children and

families affected with autism.

Riggle’s younger brother has

autism and three years ago, Riggle

started a campaign to raise

$200,000 for a new treatment for

her brother and 50 other children.

She did this by making and selling

small beaded bracelets. She would

sell them for a minimum donation

of $3 each and what started out as

a small project quickly grew into

a $500,000 fundraiser.

With volunteers across the

globe helping to make and sell

bracelets, Riggle’s new goal is

to raise $300 million for a stateof-the-art

Autism Research and

Treatment Center to be based

in Louisville, Ky. To add to her

worldwide support, Riggle now

has a group of volunteers, or

Peeps as she calls them, at North

Habersham Middle School.

When North Habersham Middle

School teacher Debbie Echols

heard about the project through

a beading magazine, she knew

it was just the thing for a FLEX

Beading class. FLEX classes are

“student choice” classes at NHMS

that they get to participate in about

every three weeks. Echols, along

with North Habersham staff Jan

Stover and Kathie Martin, work

JONATHAN ARENA/Staff

Michala Riggle addressed students at Demorest Elementary Nov. 11 to tell them about autism and what they can do

to help. Riggle began making and selling beaded bracelets five years ago to raise money to fund autism research and

treatment, and since then has begun an effort to raise $300 million to build an international autism treatment center.

with 17 middle school

girls on a “Beading to

Beat Autism” project

during these classes.

The NHMS Peeps

(aka Bobcat Beaders)

have been making

bracelets for almost

two months and have

raised close to $300 to

send to Riggle’s foundation.

Their goal

is $1,800 and they

have been selling to

students, family and

friends. As they work

on bracelets, they are

learning more about

autism and becoming

strong advocates.

Recently the girls

received a personal

visit from Riggle and

her parents. Riggle

was in Habersham

County to visit other

schools supporting

“Beading to Beat Autism” and

made North Habersham her final

stop. She spoke to the entire

school body, encouraging them

that if they felt strongly about

something to never give up and

to believe! Then students had the

opportunity to purchase a bracelet

from the large collection that

Riggle brought with her. “Bead-

ing to Beat Autism” was able to

raise more than $800 with bracelets

sold at the North Habersham

event.

The Bobcat Beaders will be

making bracelets for Riggle’s

foundation throughout the year

and will be set up at Trader John’s

Grille at “A Downtown Clarkesville

Christmas” to sell their

bracelets, with all proceeds going

12A

tastic,” Malcom said. In addition to two

blocks of “cooperative time” built into the

curriculum, she said, “we have kids giving

up their lunch breaks, their recess [to make

bracelets]… they want to help any chance

they have.”

The fifth graders’ personal goal is to

raise $3,000 for the Beat Autism Foundation

through bead sale proceeds and donations.

Michala and her parents, who run the

Beat Autism Foundation, say they have lots

of work left to do.

“In April we’re getting ready to kick a

campaign off to raise $300 million in three

days,” said Michala’s father, David Riggle.

The campaign will advertise on the Internet

and in the national media, encouraging people

to pledge $3 a month for one year. If eight

million people do that, he said, they can finish

raising the money for the autism center.

Habersham County second grade hands work hard to make ornaments for

Clarkesville’s downtown Christmas tree.

Second graders make ornaments

for downtown Christmas tree

Over the past four weeks, more than 150 students from several elementary

schools in Habersham County have participated in the Downtown Clarkesville

Christmas and annual county Christmas parade by creating holiday

ornaments for the large tree in downtown Clarkesville.

“With the assistance of their teachers, second-grade students from

Demorest, Clarkesville, Level Grove, Baldwin and Fairview elementary

schools have created these beautiful gems to adorn the tree,” says Mary Beth

Horton, Clarkesville Better Hometown manager.

The ornaments will be on display after Thanksgiving Day through New

Year’s Day, and will be featured at the tree-lighting ceremony on Dec. 3, following

the parade. “Please take the time to look at all the effort and imagination

that make up each one,” Horton says.

The 2011 Habersham County Christmas Parade, followed by A Downtown

Clarkesville Christmas and Holiday Market is Saturday, Dec. 3, beginning at

4 p.m. For more information, call 706-754-2220 or visit clarkesvillega.com.

about the impulse

to record

this CD, she responded,

“I originally

City of Cornelia ready

to break ground on the

new off-leash dog park

In the summer of 2010,

the City of Cornelia was

awarded a $98,000 Land

Water Conservation Fund

(LWCF) grant to help fund

the building of an off-leash

dog park in Cornelia. The

LWCF grant is a recreation

grant administered

through the Department

of Natural Resources that

helps communities acquire

land, develop parks and

renovate existing properties.

The new Cornelia offleash

dog park will be

located adjacent to City

Park and the parking lot

for the Community House

on Front Street. This new

park will be a great addition

to the wonderful recreational

amenities already

available within the city

limits, city officials say.

The property has been

purchased, the city has

begun work on the facility

and furnishings are being

ordered.

According to Mona

Painter, Special Projects

manager for the City of Cornelia,

“We’ve broke ground

on the project and have

started putting together

the wish list of items we’d

like to include in the park

that would best enhance

the off-leash experience

for pets and their owners.”

Specialized pieces of equipment

like pet clean-up dispensers,

pet and people watering

stations and other

dog friendly furnishings

will be purchased. Constructing

a shelter, picnic

area, purchasing lighting

and installing landscaping

will also be added expenses

for the project.

Because the grant does

require matching funds

from the city and the equipment

needed is costly, Cor-

Delicious

nelia Better Hometown

will facilitate a sponsorship

drive to help raise

more funds for the off-leash

dog park. Sponsorships

will range from fence sponsorships

from $50-$125 all

the way up to the Big Bow

Wow Benefactor for $2,000,

which names the large or

small dog off-leash areas

By MARK TURNER

Habersham Central tips off the

high school basketball season Friday

in Watkinsville at the North

Oconee Turkey Tournament.

The Raiders, coached by Don

Ledbetter, are coming off one of

the best seasons in school history

as they won 17 games last winter,

the second most wins ever for an

HCHS boys’ squad.

The Raiders return just two

starters from last year’s team but

with seven seniors on the roster

and a handful of talented underclassmen,

Ledbetter is confident

that it’s going to be another good

year for the program.

“I’ve noticed a difference, early

in practice, that the expectations

are a little bit higher and the level

of play is higher than it was when I

got here,” said Ledbetter. “Things

like the pace (of practice) and the

attention to detail. The kids believe

we can compete if we do the right

things. I think the program is in

place to continue to get better and

better.”

The team has its two top scorers

back from last season - seniors Patrick

Burns (14 points a game) and

Kevin Ellison (13 points a game) -

and a large group of players ready

to step up and contribute at the varsity

level.

“This is probably the most talented

group since I’ve been here

and they all have a really good work

ethic,” said Ledbetter. “We still

don’t have those 6-foot, 7-inch guys

that the big time programs have

but we have kids whose character

is second-to-none, whose work ethic

is second-to-none, and they can

also shoot the ball and defend.”

The team’s final roster came together

last week after HCHS was

eliminated from the football playoffs.

Despite having the full team

for only a couple of practices before

opening the season, Ledbetter is

happy with the preseason workouts.

“I’m really pleased with the way

things are going,” said Ledbetter.

“Our returning guys are doing a

good job of teaching to the younger

kids. I told the kids the other day

after practice that this team has a

little bit of a special feeling about

it. It’s the first time since I’ve been

here that there isn’t one game on

the schedule where we don’t have a

chance.”

One thing that Ledbetter has notice

is that the team practices at a

high level of intensity.

“We had the most physical practice

(last Thursday) that we’ve had

since I’ve been here,” said Ledbetter.

“The kids are getting after it at

a little different level than in the

past. We are going to be able to get

after people on defense.”

The Raiders have some time to

get ready for sub-region play, which

opens Jan. 6 against Clarke Central.

Ledbetter believes the Raiders

can compete for the top spot in

the sub-region, which consists of

Clarke Central, Winder-Barrow,

Flowery Branch, Apalachee and

Madison County.

“I really believe its wide open

unless somebody has had a couple

of move-ins (new players) that I

don’t know about,” said Ledbetter.

“We feel like the (early season)

schedule is pretty good and it will

get us ready for the sub-region

games,” said Ledbetter.

Ledbetter is expecting Banks,

Ellison and fellow seniors Justin

GHSA’s new plan

puts Habersham

in Class AAAAAA

By MARK TURNER

The Georgia High School

Association announced the

reclassification plans for

2012-13 and Habersham Central

is one of 65 schools that

will be in AAAAAA, the

state’s largest class.

HCHS, which is currently

slotted in AAAA, fell in the

top 14.75 percent of schools

in the state, meaning HCHS

will jump up two classes

when the GSHA moves to a

six-class system next fall.

HCHS officials had hoped

the school’s FTE (fulltime

enrollment) numbers would

place them in AAAAA, but

its total of 1,450 students

(ninth through 11th grade)

left them in the highest

class.

Mill Creek (2,766) is

The Habersham Central

baseball program will hold an

advanced hitting camp in December.

Head coach Chris Akridge

and the Raider staff will host the

one-day event Saturday, Dec.

10, at the baseball complex on

the campus of Wilbanks Middle

School in Demorest.

The camp, which runs from

(2,357), Lowndes County

and Camden County (2,127)

rounding out the top 10 biggest

schools in the state.

HCHS is the sixth smallest

school in the new class,

along with Druid Hills at

1,450 students. Only Effingham

County (1,447), John’s

Creek (1,443), Rockdale

(1,441), Tri-Cities (1,439) and

Senior Kevin Ellison was second on the team with a 13point

scoring average last season.

Wetherton, Richard Schlidbach

and Jacquez Davis

to be leaders on and off the

court.

“I really believe that

Pat and Kevin are as good

a pair of defenders in the

state for their size,” said

Ledbetter. “Both of them

are tremendous leaders.

Pat’s a great shooter and

Kevin is a slasher that can

score.”

The pair also plays a

key role in how the team

goes about its business in

practice.

“They both set the tempo

in practice,” said Ledbetter.

“They are both great practice

players and they raise

the level of play in practice.

You don’t see that much at

the high school level.”

Banks is expected to

provide the Raiders with

some solid post play, while

McCullough could take on

more of a scoring role this

season.

“Justin has been a good

player so far, he’s playing

at a much different level.

He’s bigger and stronger,

and he’s matured a lot.

Slater is probably the most

improved player in the program.

He’s an example of a

kid that has worked really

hard to get where he is. Jeremy

is a tremendous leader

for us. He’s just a huge character

guy. Every basketball

team needs a Jeremy Weth-

erton. Jacquez has had a

really good pre-season and

Richard can score the basketball

so he has a chance

to help us.”

Conner McCullough, a

sophomore, takes over at

the point guard spot.

“Conner is a really good

athlete,” said Ledbetter.

“He’s had a good pre-season.

He’s shooting it better

and handling the ball better.

Underclassmen Cole

Ivester, Sydnee Mulligan,

Monterrio Johnson, Zach

Rhyneer, Jake Tench and

Jacob Mann are all in the

mix for playing time.

“Sydnee was one of our

leading scorers this summer

and he’s an excellent

shooter, “ said Ledbetter.

“Cole is a terrific athlete

and Zach is a big, strong

kid and they both can help

us in the post. Monterrio

is an outstanding defender

and Jake has good quickness

and plays hard. He’s a

solid kid. Jacob gives us an

inside presence. He’s a big

(6-5), strong kid.”

Fish state records

Each year, the Georgia Department

of Natural Resources’

Wildlife Resources Division recognizes

anglers for outstanding

and state record catches.

Anglers who catch new state

records or those who catch

a fish that meets or beats a

specific weight or length limit

for that species (angler award)

are eligible for recognition.

Fish must be caught in

Georgia during the legal angling

season for the species taken in

accordance with all fishing laws

and regulations.

Fish must be caught on

sporting tackle and be hooked

and landed by the entrant

(bush hooks, trot lines, jugs,

baskets, nets, etc. are not

considered sporting tackle).

The fish must meet either

minimum weight or length

requirements for that particular

species, as noted on the

minimum eligible weights chart

available online or in print at

any division Fisheries office in

the state.

In order for a harvested

catch to be recognized, anglers

should follow these steps:

• Do not clean or freeze the

fish.

• Keep the fish cool, preferably

on ice.

• Weigh the fish as soon

as possible on scales certified

accurate to the nearest ounce

by the Georgia Department of

Agriculture in the presence of

two witnesses who are over

the age of 18 (witnesses must

provide names/addresses and

telephone numbers and may

not be members of the anglers

immediate family). Scales

that meet these requirements

typically are found at grocery

stores, WRD offices, some

marinas, etc.

• Take the fish to a division

Fisheries Management Office

as soon as possible and have

it positively identified by a Fisheries

biologist or technician.

• Complete an application

and submit with a clear side

view photo of the whole fish.

State record applications must

be received within 90 days of

the catch. Angler award applications

must be received by

Jan. 15, 2012 for fish caught

in 2011.

In order for a catch and

release fish to be recognized,

anglers should follow these

steps:

• Measure the fish to the

nearest inch with a standard,

English-unit ruler or measuring

tape.

• Submit a clear photograph

of the fish for proper identification

and length verification (the

photo should at least show the

entire length of the fish and the

ruler or tape used to measure

the fish).

In addition, a photo of the

angler with the fish is also

required.

• Complete an application

and submit with photos. Angler

award applications must be

received by Jan. 15, 2012 for

fish caught in 2011.

Anglers must possess

appropriate Georgia fishing

licenses to fish in Georgia. If

fishing for trout, anglers need a

trout license.

If fishing on a PFA, anglers

also need to have a WMA

license.

about fishing opportunities in

in the class. Hardaway

(1,425), Sprayberry (1,413),

Forsyth Central (1,401)

and Winder-Barrow (1,400)

are the only schools in the

class with more than 1,400

students.

Habersham Central athletic

director Amy Hood

spoke to GHSA executive

director Ralph Swearngin

about the appeal process

Monday morning after the

classification list was announced.

“There is no appeal to

play down,” said Hood.

“You can appeal to play up

like some schools do, but

you can’t appeal to play

down. You can appeal your

region placement but that

would be a lateral move (in

the same class).”

Hood expects the school

to be placed in a region

with schools from northern

Gwinnett County such

as Mill Creek, Peachtree

Ridge, Dacula, North

Gwinnett, Central Gwinnett,

etc.

The only other geographical

match for HCHS

would appear to be a region

that includes schools

in Forsyth County including

North Forsyth, South

Forsyth, West Forsyth and

Lambert.

The GHSA does allow

for an appeal based on

geographical isolation. According

to the GHSA White

Book, “an individual

school shall be considered

to be isolated if the average

distance from that school

to all other schools in the

region is 100 miles or more

one way. The decision to

place a school in a higher

or lower classification will

be based on a combination

of factors that include

travel distances and school

population size.”

HCHS does not fit the association’s

rule for that appeal

as most of the schools

in Gwinnett and Forsyth

counties are between 50-80

miles from the HCHS campus.

“We’ll just have to wait

and see what region we are

placed in before we consider

an (lateral) appeal,” said

Hood.

Hood admitted that she’s

disappointed with the news

but that she believes that

the school can continue to

be competitive.

“The numbers are what

they are and you can’t argue

with the numbers,

that’s what this whole

thing is based on,” said

Hood. “Our coaches and

athletes are doing a great

job. If we are in 6A, that

won’t affect how hard our

kids and coaches work,

and it won’t affect how

much the community supports

this program. We’ll

have to come together and

continue to do all we can to

compete.”

The classification plan

covers the 2012-13 and 2013-

14 academic years.

“In two years, it will

probably change again,”

said Hood. “You don’t

know what it will look at

by then.”

Advocate

What’s going on

with peanuts?

Peanut butter

is a staple

food at my

house. We go

through a jar a

week. Therefore,

when I read the

recent media

reports about

peanut growers

receiving record

prices for their

peanuts as peanut

butter prices

rise, it caught my

attention.

I don’t grow

peanuts, but I know farmers

who do and so I asked

about these reports.

Turns out, some

reporters have used the

United States Department

of Agriculture’s National

Posted Price as a reference

for the price farmers

are getting for their peanuts.

In mid-October, this

price was $1,200 a ton for

the runner peanuts used

to make peanut butter.

Growers, however, were

only being offered $800 to

$1,000 a ton for their peanuts.

Peanut farmers say

it’s well known in their

industry that the USDA

posted price for peanuts

is higher than what peanut

buyers actually pay

farmers.

Most farmers contracted

their peanuts for

$550 to $600 a ton before

planting their crop last

spring. Row crop farmers

forward contract their

crops to obtain loans to

buy the seed, fertilizer

and other supplies needed

to plant their crops.

Peanut market experts

estimate 75 to 80 percent

of Georgia’s peanuts were

sold at the lower prices,

so only 20 to 25 percent

of the peanuts harvested

this fall are expected

to be sold at the higher

prices.

When you see higher

prices at the store for

peanut butter and peanut

products, please don’t

think it’s because farmers

have set higher prices

for their peanuts. Farmers

don’t set the price for

their crops. The rules of

supply and demand set

the prices, as is true for

all commodities.

The price of peanuts

has increased due to a

low supply of peanuts,

which has been caused

by several things. The

2010 peanut crop was

The new “Georgia Grown”

marketing campaign was

unveiled at this year’s Produce

Marketing Association

(PMA) annual convention in

October, which, coincidentally,

was held in Atlanta for

the first time in more than a

decade.

Central to the new campaign

is a revamped Georgia

Grown logo, which has

already been endorsed from

many of the state’s top produce

manufacturers and potential

users.

Gilbert

Barrett

smaller than

usual, then last

winter peanut

contracts weren’t

high enough to

compete with

cotton and corn

prices, so farmers

planted fewer

peanuts. The

drought we experienced

this year

further reduced

the harvest.

Consumers

should also understand

peanut

farmers are paying more

than ever to grow peanuts

due to the rising costs of

fuel, seed, fertilizer and

pest control. Economists

estimate Georgia peanut

growers spent 30 percent

more than last year to

grow an acre of irrigated

peanuts and 20 percent

more an acre for non-irrigated

peanuts.

It’s not just peanut

farmers who are facing

higher production costs.

According to the USDA,

total operating costs for

corn and wheat production

have increased 18

percent from last year

due to higher fuel, seed

and fertilizer costs, and

production costs have

increased 13 percent for

soybeans and 9 percent

for cotton. Livestock

producers are also facing

higher production costs

due to higher feed and

fuel costs. These recordhigh

production costs are

consuming most of any

higher prices farmers

may be receiving.

Even though prices of

peanut butter and other

food products may rise,

it’s important to remember

these products are

still a great value for the

nutritional benefits they

provide. It’s important

that American farmers

remain economically

viable so the majority of

the food we eat continues

to be grown domestically

rather than in foreign

countries, where quality

standards are less stringent

than in the U.S.

Keep in mind every

time you buy Georgiagrown

products you are

supporting Georgia farmers

and keeping our rural

communities economically

The November FFA Member Spotlight

goes to FFA Chapter President

Kelly Thompson. She is in the spotlight

for her outstanding dedication

to the FFA program.

As a member of FFA, Thompson

is involved in many activities such

as showing livestock, competing in

career development events (CDEs),

Summer Leadership Camp (SLC) and

Chapter Officer Leadership Training

(COLT) Conference.

Thompson has shown a variety of

animals with the FFA, such as market

hogs and cattle, but her favorite

is showing goats. For the past three

years, she has exhibited her goats in

many shows, locally, all around the

state and even out of the state. This

year, her hard work has paid off in

the show ring.

In Hart County, she received the

Champion Showman award and third

place overall wether. The Gwinnet

County Fair awarded her first in

showmanship along with three first

places and one second place in weight

classes. Goliath, one of Thompson’s

goats, walked away with the Grand

Champion award at Stephens County

FFA Alumni Goat Show. Chattahoochee

Mountain Fair was a success

for Thompson when she won Senior

Showmanship and first, second and

third in weight classes.

At this year’s local livestock show

at the Habersham County Fairgrounds,

she was awarded Grand and

Reserved Champion for two of her

goats and she placed first in Senior

Showmanship. This month she will

travel to Louisville, Ky., to show her

goats at the world’s largest al-breed,

purebred livestock expedition. This

year, she has participated in many

shows and won many classes.

During her four years as an FFA

member, Thompson has contributed

FFA RECOGNIZES VETERANS DAY

On Veterans Day, the FFA chapter at Habersham Central High School recognized Habersham County School employees who

served in the armed services. Pictured, from left, with FFA students are Kelly Thompson [FFA], Don Ford [U.S. Marines], Teri

Roberts [U.S. Marines], Maj. Mark Ashton [U.S. Air Force], Austin Thompson [FFA], Jeff Johnson [U.S. Air Force], Megan Scroggs

[FFA], Kelly Sweeney [FFA] and BJ Addis [FFA]. Also honored but not pictured were Marsha Brock [U.S. Army], Sgt. Robert Wallace

[Air Force] and Levy Briggs [U.S. Army].

Habersham Central FFA Chapter President Kelly Thompson has entered her

a lot of time to being an officer and

to CDEs. This summer she attended

COLT; part of being an officer is attending

the COLT Conference at the

FFA Camp in Covington. Also at this

same camp earlier in the summer, she

attended the SLC and won the test on

camp history. The test was one of the

many events students had to participate

in as part of camp fun.

Thompson looks forward to representing

Habersham while competing

in CDEs. So far this year, she has participated

in the Area II Job Interview

CDE where she placed third.

Even though it may seem Thompson

has her hands full with this being

her senior year in high school

and FFA, she still makes time for

other activities. These activities include

teaching middle school girls at

Mt. Zion UMC on Wednesday nights,

being in beauty pageants and working

three summers in a row at the

Habersham County Cannery. At the

Chattahoochee Mountain Fair this

year, Thompson participated in the

Miss Chattahoochee pageant, where

she was crowned as a queen.

Since the beginning, Thompson

has given FFA all she has. She says

“taking first place in the goat show

took countless hours of work, but it

was all worth it for a year I’ll never

forget! I encourage everyone to join

the FFA because I have made life-long

friendships with people from all the

states, have learned skills and developed

characteristics that will serve

me well in my future!”

Thompson plans to major in agriculture.
