Sometime during the night. NMacKendrick en-
tered the room where the youngster was sleeping
with some other children and began touching her;
The girl began crying and her father, who was
in the next room, heard her and called for her to
come join him.

investigators he had no knowledge of any sexual
activity with the girl but admitted that he "had
been known to black out" when he drinks exces-
Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 22.

Kevin Williams, who works
with McGhee for the Liberty
County School Board office, was
heading to work around 7:30 that
morning when he spotted two
girls walking along the side of
the road. When he pulled over to
talk to the girls, they darted into
the woods.
He wasn't sure who they were
but thought they might have been
the McGhee children. Williams,
whose young daughter was with
him, stopped at the McGhee
home and sent her inside to
check. When she looked in the
girls' room, she saw what she
thought were the two girls still
asleep in their beds.,
About this time, Williams con-
tacted their mother, who called
her daughter and had her look.
When the missing girls' 16-year-
old sister went in their room and
pulled back the covers of the bed
they share, she found they had piled
up their dolls to look like they were
still there.
At the head of the bed, the girls
used dolls with their own hair color
one blond, one brown. At a
glance, it appeared they were where
they were supposed to be, their
mother said.
The McGhees, along with
numerous relatives and friends,
gathered at the scene and began
searching the woods along Hwy.
,7.67. Deputies from the Liberty,
County Sheriff's Department
arrived, along with volunteers
from all over the county. Five
dog tracking teams that had
been training in the woods that
day came to the scene to join
the search. Unfortunately, their'
efforts were impeded by numer-
ous tracks left by those who all
already started searching for
the missing girls. The Leon
County Sheriff's Department
conducted an aerial search by
helicopter. EMTs. came to the
scene and employees from the
Emergency Management Office
helped get water and supplies to
"Liberty County really pulled
together," said McGhee, noting
how volunteers, including many

of her co-workers, were going up
and down the road searching as
others brought in a constant sup-
ply of food, water and Gatorade.
Despite the heat of the morning
and an afternoon downpour, "No-
body stopped," she said. "They
kept telling me, 'We're going to
find your girls.'"
Within a three mile area of the
family's home, searchers found
things the girls had left behind
as they grew tired of carrying
all they'd packed for their great
adventure. One of the girls broke
a shoe and it was left along the
road. In the woods, a sleeping
bag was found. In another spot,
a housecoat was located.
The girls seemed to have put
some thought into the items they
took with them, McGhee said.
"The only things they didn't
think to bring was a flashlight and
some water," she said. The girls
later told her when they became
thirsty, they drank out of a puddle
on the ground.
Although the young sisters
live in shorts during the summer,
"they were smart enough to put
on jeans" before heading into the
woods, their mom said.
The girls were found at 5:20
p.m. by their grandfather, Alvin
Godwin,and nd a cousin, Richard
Shuler. When the youngest girl
heard her grandfather calling she
ran from the woods into his arms.
Her sister, wary until she was sure
of who he was, soon followed.
"They were happy to see their
mom and dad and their mom and
dad were happy to see them," said
Charles Morris of the Liberty
County, Sheriff's Department.
"We just made sure they were
physically o.k. before leaving,"
he said.
The McGhees didn't want to
punish the girls but did want them
to understand what they had done

and how it had affected so many
other people that day. The older
girl was given an assignment to
write a 300-word essay about
what had happened, and both
girls are in the process of writing
thank you notes to those helping
in the search.
In her essay, the 10-year-old
sister described how they crossed
the highway to avoid dense un-
derbrush. "We stopped again but
there was two many mosquitoes.
We heard a hog. One side of the
road was too full of stickers. We
crossed to the other side," she
McGhee said the girls had no
idea that dog teams were tracking
them although they did hear bark-
ing at one point. "We heard your
dogs but they scared me," the
younger sister wrote in a thank
you note, and added, "Do us all a
Favor and give them a snack."
She said the girls went through
a couple of open fields. When
it started raining that afternoon,
they tried to head back home
but got lost. "They had no idea
people were searching for them,"
McGee said.
When she later asked the nine-
year-old why she took such a big
risk to go along with her sister, the
little girl replied, "I didn't want
her to leave by herself."
The McGhees said the girls
are well-behaved and there hadn't
been any recent problems that
might have prompted them to take
off. "There wasn't any trouble
(at home) and they w weren't on
restriction," McGhee said. "We
had no signs to go by to see any
of this coming."
She said the older girl admitted
they didn't have a destination in
mind. "They didn't know where
they were headed. She just said
she's sorry and it won't every
happen again."
McGhee felt giving the oldest
:girl a writing assignment would
impress upon her what she had
caused to happen. It appears
it did when the girl penned the
following: "I'm really sad about
the time spent looking for us and
I know how hot it was for y'all
and how much everything cost. I
love you. Thank you very much
for being there."

Vice President Dick Cheney went to George Washington
University Hospital and got a colonoscopy. The doctor
said his colon is fine, but his esophagus is inflamed. Let
me tell you something, if you finish a colonoscopy and
you have a sore throat, that is a very thorough exam.

I guess we're all excited that President Bush announced
his nomination to the Supreme Court -- John Roberts.
Bush searched far and wide before he made the risky
choice of a white guy in his fifties. DAVID LETTERMAN

, President Bush said the job of the Supreme Court was
extremely important because these are the people we
choose to pick the next president of the United States.

Here's what we know about John Roberts -- he's a
conservative and, as a small town judge, he once
outlawed dirty dancing. DAVID LETTERMAN

You realize Supreme Court nominee John Roberts is
only 50 years old. He could serve on thecourt for the
next 40 years. So he could still be there when we pull
out of Iraq. JAY LENO

President Bush announced that he has nominated Judge-
John Roberts to the court. When asked why, Bush said
he picked Roberts because he has one of the finest legal

minds since Matlock.


The Republicans deal with 'Wilsongate'

According to the New York
Post the only ex-president
.,,,[ i,-, ,1 ~ ,I n -,n r l hi e I ^

It seems that the Republicans
did nothing dunng the eight years,
of the Clinton administration but
investigate President Clinton.
The millions .of dollars spent
on-many investigations never
proved that President Clinton
was guilty of an. thing except
having lied under oath to con-
ceal a sexual relationship with a
White House intern.
Normally, an affair is an issue
between a husband and a wife
that usually ends up in divorce.
court. The irony and hypocrisy
of the Republicans investigating
Clinton for having an illicit rela-
tionship was that three or four of
his accusers, the most notable be-
ing former Speaker of the House,
Newt Gingrich, were having, or
had affairs of their own. A case of
the pot calling the kettle black, as
my grandmother often said.
Before he could get his bags
unpacked in the White House, the
Republicans were after President
Clinton for some alleged scheme
involving a subdivision of scrub
oaks and pine trees somewhere in
Arkansas. Seems like there was

Hussein's head on a platter.
As I listened to the Republican
drumbeat for war, one of Bush's
assertions was that Baghdad had
tried to buy uranium s ello%\ cake
from Niger, presumably as part of
a nuclear weapons program.
Joseph Wilson, the last U.S.
ambassador to Iraq, went to.Ni-
ger to determine if Bush's claim
was true. Wilson concluded that
Hussein was not attempting to
buy uranium yellowcake from
Niger and said so in a piece in
the New York Times.

Follow through with Hurricane

Dennis: Do you want to help?

The Sumatra Assembly of God
Youth Group is working with sev-
eral other churches from Franklin
County to help out in an area that
may not be looked upon as big;
however, your gesture would be
of great assistance.

children myself, I am aware
how costly it can run for just
school supplies, not including the
clothes they are going to need.
We may all be in a crunch our-
selves, but lets reach out to our
neighbors. A lot of these families
have lost their homes, jobs and
or both to Hurricane Dennis,
and for these families, life has
to continue, the kids have to go
to school.
Please, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could send a
donation to help others in need.

United Way holds drawing

to select four new partners

fort to expand the number of Unit-
ed Way of the Big Bend (UWBB)
Certified Agencies in 2005, a
drawing was held at the Tallahas-
see-Leon County Civic Center to
determine which four nonprofit
charities would be added from a
group of five applicants.
The four new UWBB Certi-
fied Agencies are ECHO Outreach
Ministries, Mothers in Crisis,
PACE Center for Girls, and Office
of the Public Guardian.
Creating a viable expansion
process began in 2003 when a
UWBB Board Committee was
formed to determine the best way
to add new certification standards
and agencies.
"A group of eight United Way
board members and four United
Way agency representatives began
by analyzing current membership.

ways they should be strength-

agencies would have to go through
to become certified. We believed
that this would strengthen our re-
lationships with current United
Way of the Big Bend agencies that
are deljlerin- human-care ser-
vices throughout the year in our
community. A year later, the new
standards and process were voted
on and approved by the board af-
ter many months of analysis and
scrutiny. I firmly believe that these
standards have added a new level
of accountability to our certified
agencies and maximized the im-
pact of every United Way dollar
that is allocated to them."
In 2004, currently-funded
UWBB agencies underwent the
certification process to become
Certified Agencies, said Ken Arm-
strong, UWBB president. They
also must continue to meet these
standards every year in order to
maintain their certified-agency
"Our goal was to create an
inclusive process that was equi-
table to all areas of human-care
services, and we've done that,"
Armstrong said. "Only one new
charity can be added to each hu-
man-care area under the United
Wa\ umbrella. This gives all local
chiantie, a fair chance to become a
certified agency. They provide dif-
ferent, yet important, human-care
services that address the needs of
our community. Today, we wel-
come these four new nonprofit
agencies that will help to expand
the human-care role UWBB plays
in the Big Bend."
The process to add new certi-
fied agencies was as follows:
*Interested nonprofit charities
completed a UWBB Certification
Form and provided documenta-
tion Verifying they conformed to
UWBB's certification criteria.

*They agreed that, if they be-
came a UWBB Certified Agency,
they would abide by a set of stan-
dards with which each UWBB
Certified Agency must comply an-
*After receiving all forms by the.
end of April 2005, their documen-
tation gets reviewed by UWBB
staff and all eligible agencies are
visited by UWBB staff in June

Bronson announces reopening of two summer

oyster harvesting areas of Apalachicola Bay

da Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
the reopening of two of five
summer oyster harvesting ar-
eas in Apalachicola Bay. The
reopening of those areas comes
10 days after the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices had closed all of the bay
to oyster harvesting as a result
of potential impacts from Hur-
ricane Dennis.
"Public safety is our number
one concern, and we had to make
sure that the waters open for har-
vest meet FDA standards," said
As a result of extensive moni-

touring of the bay, officials say-
they are reopening Areas 1652
and 1662 as tests show that oys-
ters are safe to consume from
those areas. Area 1652 is north
of the John Gorrie Memorial
Bridge while 1662 is south of
the bridge. Bronson emphasized
that testing is ongoing, and the-
remainder of the shellfish har-
vesting areas will reopen as soon
as tests indicate that shellfish
from those areas are safe to con-

ture and Consumer Services,

ing the safe harvest of Florida

Floridians to avoid consum-
ing raw oysters, which often
harbor the naturally occurring
bacteria Vibrio Vulnificus.
Those at-risk for developing
serious illness from the bacte-
ria include heavy drinkers with
liver damage, as well as people
with certain health conditions,
including those with liver dis-
ease, diabetes, cancer, stomach
disorders or any illness or treat-
ment that weakens the immune
There are several cooking
techniques that individuals in
high-risk groups can use to
enjoy oysters while remaining
safe. Thoroughly cooking oys-
ters, either by frying, stewing
or roasting, eliminates harm-
ful bacteria and viruses in the
meat. Consuming raw oysters
that have undergone a post-
harvest treatment process to
eliminate the bacteria can also
reduce the risk of illness.

FWC seeks scientific information about four on imperiled species list

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is requesting informa-
tion and data on the biological
status of the bald eagle, gopher
tortoise, manatee and Panama
City crayfish: The agency will
use the information during the
first phase of its review of listing
petitions for the four species.
During phase one, biologi--
cal review panels, consisting of
FWC staff and outside experts,
will conduct a biological assess-

ment of their respective species..
The Commission established
these panels at its June meeting.
The panels will bring together
the most up-to-date informa-
tion and run the data through the
state's imperiled species listing
criteria to determine whether a
species should be classified as
endangered, threatened or spe-
cies of special concern. When
biologically justifiable, the pan-
els may recommend a different

to gather scientific data and ob-
servations about the biology of
these species," said Dan Sul-
livan, who is coordinating the
FWC's review of the species.

input during phase two, after we
complete the biological assess-

"We're the first to see those kids
in the morning and the last in the
afternoon, so if they've already had
a hard day when they get on the bus,
we need to make it softer for them."

Bus drivers gear up for the

start of a new school year

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
When the doors open for
another academic year,
school bus drivers are on the front
"They have the toughest job in
the school system," says Calhoun
County Transportation Director
David Pitts, pointing out how
drivers with a bus full of kids at
their back have to keep their eyes
on the road while looking out for
other traffic.
E\ er3 school daN, hundreds of
children are on the road between
home and their classrooms. There
are'22 route-. in Calhoun Count\:
Liberty Count) has 14.
Drivers don't take their jobs

"I don't think people really
realize what an awesome respon-
,.ibility a bus driver has. They
don't think abnut the danger and
what woe t4ce eerv da\ on the,
road," says Carolyn Shuler, who
is beginning her 26thyear behind

the wheel of a Liberty County
school bus.
"It's a challenge," says Clyde
Stone, who will soon mark her
35th year as a bus driver with the
Calhoun County School System.
"If you realize what you carry, it
scares you to death."
But, they do it, day after day.
Remarkably, most keep coming
back year after year.
"I enjoy the children and enjoy
watching them grow up and see
what they become," says Stone.
She transports the grandchildren
of kids she once drove, often
recognizing them by fanmil re-
semblance v.hen they first tep.
on her bus. ,
While her own sons chose to
walk to school, Stone's daugh-
ter rode her bus when she was
a student. Over the years she
has transported six of her own
grandchildren and is looking
forward to carrying two of her
great-grandchildren on her route


this year.
In Calhoun County, school bus
riders have assigned seats and the
girls are on one side of the bus
and the boys on the other. "It
really helps," Stone says, explain-
ing that the system has been in
use for the past three or four years
and seems to minimize discipline
Kids have changed a lot over
the years and she tries to keep a
close eye on her passengers, es-
peciall., the very youngest.
When she reaches one of her
stops and noiic0c '.,',ime thinly
seems out of place. she may not:
let a child leave the bus. At one
residence, she was accustomed
to finding the mother standing in-
the doorway every day to wait as
her child walked home. One day,
no one was there. After leaving,
a note on the door. S tone brought
the youngster home with her.
A short time later, the mother
arrived at her door, relieved af--
ter being delayed by a flat tire.
"Things have to be normal or I
don't let my little ones off," says
When she first started driving,
"I was supposed to have called
it quits when the children gradu-
ated, but here I am." At the age of
70, Stone says her health is good
and "I can probably outwork most
young un's."

"You've gotta love kids and
have pretty good communication
skills with parents," says Liberty
County Transportation Director
Greg Solomon, describing two
critical traits needed by drivers.
He's always looking for substi-
tute drivers but says it's getting
harder as the requirements for the
job increase. New drivers have
to pass a 40-hour course and take
part in an annual eight-hour in-
service training. Applicants must
be fingerprinted and undergo
background checks, in addition
to having a good driving record
and passing a physical.
Ever\ year we lose one or-
two drivers, he says, e\plaiining.

"You can't feed a family on a
bus driver's salary." Still, he's
pleased with the folks he. has,
explaining that the part-time job
is well suited "for a housewife or
a preacher."
He'd like to see all the Liberty
County. buses updated, with air
conditioning, particularly since
school starts back earlier now
when the summer heat is still
brutal. "It's too hot to be on the
bus with all those bodies," he
say~ He bux s one nc,\ school bus
a year. which includes newiseat
hell, as \ell as air conditioning.
\\hen It ets tough mintaiin-
ing order, students and their par-
ents atie reminded that riding the
bus "is not an riht but privilegee"
he says. "We expect the same
conduct on the bus that we expect
in the cla,'oonm." he says.

I': Te had the same route all
these years and I've always en-
joyed it," Carolyn Shuler says
of her Bristol bus route. "I have
anywhere from 60 to 80 kids
almost every day, from age four
up to seniors."
She says it can be hard es-
pecially because, "Sometimes,
parents expect you to be a baby-
sitter." Shes quick to point out if
parents realized the danger posed
by. a student who misbehaves on
the bus, "They would back all the
She looks forward to that first
moment when the kids board. "I
love to see 'em in the morning
time. I tell 'em 'good morning'
and I hope I brighten up their
day like they brighten up mine,"
she says.
Their unique vantage point
tells drivers a lot about their com-
nminity. They see the best and the
worst of our kids e\ cry day and
'\ ith a glance sum up how things
are at home tor the youngsters in
their care.
Linda Yon has about 37 years
c\periencc as a bus driver in
Calhoun County. She retired
once, and during that time, came
back a a substitute driver for a

couple of years, taking various
routes. "I saw more of Calhoun
County those two years than I'd
even known of," she sa\ s.
She returned to the job full
time last November and took over
the Carr Community route.
She knows how to handle
those first-day-of-school jitters
with the littlest riders. "Some-
times they do cry so I keep some
gum or lollipops in my pocket,"
she says, and adds with a laugh,
"When the\ realize the driver
doesn't kill and eat the young
un's, they 're ok."
Yon calls herself "a great
grandma" who can't help giv-
ing a kid a hug now and then.
"It makes a difference, it really
does," she says. "We're the first
to see those kidd in.the morning
and the last in the afternoon, so
if they've already had a hard day
when they get on the bus, we
need to make it softer for them,"
she says.
While discipline can be a chal-
lenge, she finds that "kids will
be pretty much what you expect
them to be." She finds that the
large heavy backpacks kids today
carry work to her advantage. She
makes them sit with the back-
packs"in their laps not on the
floor. "That keeps them in their
seats," she says. If she had to
make a sudden stop and the floor
was full of loose backpacks, "they
could turn into weapons of mass
destruction," she teases.
At the age of 64 ("going on
15," she quickly adds), she's'
seen plenty of changes over her
years as a school bus driver. "It's
choked with regulations and
strangulations," she laughs, but
admits it's come a long way.
"I started so many years ago
that the only bus shop we had was
a chain hoist in a big oak tree,"
she says. "It was primitive, but
it's better now. We have good
equipment, good leadership and
anice ne\1 facility, for mechanical
., She ,adds, "I've had.agood
time andI really enjoy it."

Taking inventory: With the help of a small army of

volunteers, NCA completes an ambitious project

from the Hometown News Service
tional Cemetery Administration
just completed a two-and-a-half
year. effort to catalog every me-
morial on its grounds, and the
project yielded some surprising
In 2002, NCA estimated there
were 300 monuments and me-
morials in VA national cemeter-
ies and soldier's lots. The final,
count revealed thereare 872.
The Memorials Inventory
Project, based on the national
Save Outdoor Sculpture inven-
tory project, used volunteers to
document, measure and photo-
graph monuments and memori-
als on NCA property. More than
3,000 people from around the
world contacted NCA to express
interest in volunteering to par-
ticipate in the project. Calls and
e-mails came in from New Zea-
land, the Philippines, Denmark,
Western Europe, and even from
active duty military personnel
fighting in Iraq. In all, 372 vol-
unteers worked on the project
-- including 40 .VA employees
from across the country.

Volunteers documented 1,049
different memorial objects found
at VA national cemeteries. A
number of surveyed objects, such
as Bivouac of the Dead plaques,
Gettysburg Address tablets, car-
illons and artillery, were reclas-
sified under separate categories
after the project ended.
The majority of project vol-
unteers were active duty military
personnel and working profes-
sionals, followed by retirees and
then students. "The volunteers
were very dedicated," said Ran-
dy Watkins, of Jefferson Bar-
racks National Cemetery in St.
Numerous volunteers re-
quested additional survey as-
signments after completing their
first one. One couple document-
ed memorials in Wisconsin and
Hawaii, while a military retiree
documented three North Caroli-
na sites and two in Arizona. Sev-
eral groups of volunteers also
participated, including a 4-H
club that recorded memorials at
Rock Island National Cemetery
in Illinois.

pate and play a small role in the
survey of memorials honoring
our servicemembers who sac-
rificed for the freedoms we en-
joy," said Michael Tanigawa, a
retired Army lieutenant colonel
who volunteered at the National
Memorial Cemetery of the Pa-
cific in Honolulu.
Ongoing analysis of the Me-
morials Inventory Prdject has
shown that 27 national cemeter-
ies and soldier's lots have been
found to contain no memorials.
Dates of installment show that
the number of memorials erected
in national cemeteries has sky-
rocketed since 1980; nearly 600
have been installed since 1990.
The increase is due, in part, to
the creation of memorial paths
or walkways as commemorative
areas in national cemeteries built
since 1980. These findings will
guide future funding requests for
preservation of monuments and
memorials located in VA nation-
al cemeteries and soldier's lots.
The project raised awareness
about national cemeteries, their
history, and the soldiers and sail-
ors interred in them.
Many volunteers conducted
thorough and intensive research
on the memorials that has prov-
en invaluable for -the NCA His-
tory Program.
.Through the project, NCA
identified one particularly sig-
nificant monument at the Loud-
on Park National Cemetery in
Baltimore. The Maryland Sons
monument, originally dedi-
cated as the Union Monument
on Memorial Day 1884, has a
3-foot terracotta frieze around
it -- similar to the frieze around
the National Building Museum
(formerly the Pension Building)
in Washington, D.C. The Memo-
rials Inventory Project volunteer
submitted 1884 newspaper ar-
ticles revealing that the monu-
ment sculptor was allowed to
use the mold from the frieze at
the Pension Building, which was
being built at the same time.
Another beneficial outcome
of the project has been the cen-
tralization of memorial informa-
tion. Although volunteers were
unable to locate information on
many. memorials, the project
did reveal how many memorials
are in VA's national cemeteries
and where they are. It also pro-
duced a significant photographic
archive for the NCA History
Program, with more than 6,600
photographs and more than 500
negatives of memorials collect-

NCA will share information
on its sculpture monuments with
the public later this year through
the Smithsonian's art inventory
database, known as SIRIS. The
NCA History Program will also
work with NCA IT staff to cre-
ate a searchable online database
of its own so that information
and photographs on all of its me-
morials will be available to the



The Liberty County District School Board will soon consider a measure to increase its property tax levy.
Last year's property tax levy
A. Initially proposed tax levy........................................... $828,417
B. Less tax reductions due to Value Adjustment
Board and other assessment changes,........................... $994
C: Actual property tax levy............................................. $827,423

This year's proposed tax levy............ ............$1,070,421

A portion of the tax levy is required under state law in order for the school board to receive $6,839,223 in state educa-
tion grants. The required portion has increased by 26.52 percent, and represents approximately nine tenths of the total
proposed taxes.

The remainder of the taxes is proposed solely at the discretion of the school board.

All concerned citizens are invited to a public hearing on the tax increase to be held August 1, 2005, at 5:05 P.M., at the
Liberty Education and Administration Center located on Highway 12 South, Bristol, Florida.

A DECISION on the proposed tax increase and the budget will be made at this hearing.

UF researchers identify zinc transport proteins

from the University of Florida
fections strike people and other
mammals, zinc circulating in
their blood is diverted into liver
cells, a response both familiar
and puzzling to scientists, who
have long debated its purpose.
University of Florida research-
ers studying mice have, for the
first time, identified proteins that
transport zinc during the process,
said Robert Cousins, an eminent
scholar of nutritional biochem-
istry with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. The
researchers also identified the
chemical that initiates produc-
tion of the most active protein in
the group.
The findings, published in a
recent issue of the journal "Pro-
ceedings of the National Acade-
my of Sciences," may eventually
help scientists determine whether
the zinc is mobilized as a survival
strategy, he said.
"The current thinking is there's
some benefit to redistributing the
zinc," said Cousins, a member
of the National Academy of Sci-

ences and an internationally rec-
ognized expert on dietary zinc.
"It may be liver cells need extra
zinc to carry out their functions,
or perhaps reducing zinc levels in
the blood discourages the growth
of infectious organisms."
Though it may take years to
fully understand why the body
sends zinc to the liver, the UF
study shows how advances in ge-
netics research might enable sci-
entists to solve the riddle faster,
he said.
"We screened all the genes that
had been identified as possibly
controlling cellular zinc trans-
port, and identified the important
ones by process of elimination,"
Cousins said. "This same ap-
proach could help narrow down
the list of theories about why it
Important to immune respons-
es, wound healing and repro-
duction, zinc is the second most
abundant trace mineral in the hu-
man body, after iron, he said. In
most adults, a total of 1.5 to 2.5
grams of zinc is found in muscles,
blood, bone and some organs.

The human body contains
more than 20 proteins that trans-
port zinc,, each produced at the
direction of a different gene,
Cousins said. Researchers are
uncertain why people make so
many of the proteins, or whether
they all have unique functions.
"It's odd, because in iron
metabolism, for example, there
are only two transport proteins
- one to take iron into cells
and one to bring it out," he said.
"With zinc, the theory is that this
nutrient does so many things that
some of the transporters may be
used only for specific processes
inside cells. For example, zinc is
needed by the pancreas to pro-
cess and secrete insulin to pre-
vent diabetes."
With funding from a long--
term National Institutes of Health
grant,Cousins has set out to learn
the secrets of every gene associ-
ated with zinc transport, as well
as the physiological events that
influence the genes' activity.
"The zinc redistribution pro-
cess that occurs during infection
is well-known, so it was a good

place for us to start," said Cous-
ins, who is based in UF's Depart-
ment of Food Science and Hu-
man Nutrition.
In the current study, Cous-
ins, along with department
colleagues Juan Liuzzi, a post-
doctoral associate, and Mitchell
Knutson, an assistant profes-
sor of nutritional biochemistry,
worked with collaborators at
the University of California,
Los Angeles. The research team
determined that three proteins,
known as ZnT5, Zip6 and Zip 14,
transported zinc in response to
both infection and inflamma-
tion, which also causes zinc to
accumulate in liver cells.
To make the discovery, the re-
searchers screened 14 zinc trans-
port genes using two groups of
mice, inducing infection in one
group and causing inflamma-
tion in the other. Later, genetic
analysis of liver cells from the
mice showed the genes that con-
trol production of ZnT5, Zip6
and Zipl4 became significantly
more active in both groups. The
researchers then focused on the
Zipl4 gene, which had the stron-
gest response.
Previous studies had suggested
this redistribution of body zinc to
the liver is initiated by the pro-
tein interleukin 6, which directs
many of the body's defenses to
acute illness. To explore this pos-
sibility, the researchers conduct-
ed an experiment in mice lacking

of interleukin 6. These so-called
knockout mice showed little
zinc transfer to liver cells when
exposed to infection or inflam-
mation, suggesting that without
interleukin 6 the Zipl4 gene re-
mains inactive.
In the future, these UF re-
searchers plan to explore wheth-
er the known minor variations in
the Zipl4 gene might cause dif-
ferences in the way people pro-
cess and respond to zinc, Cousins
said. Physicians might one day be
better able to treat patients suffer-
ing infections, if it were possible
to gauge how much zinc each
person required for an optimum
infection-fighting response.
"We're at the beginning of
this work, but it's exciting be-
cause many of these genes have
been identified only in the past
few years, and using new digital
imaging methods in microscopy
we're able to see things no one
else has ever seen," he said.

Preparing your landscape for storms

Many people prepare their
homes for hurricanes, but have
you ever thought about prepar-
ing your landscape for storms?
While no landscape is immune
to the wind, rain and storm surge
of a hurricane, with proper plan-
ning and care you can minimize
the potential for your landscape
to be a liability during a devas-
tating storm.
The first step in avoiding
storm damage begins with the
initial selection of the plants.-
Plants that are native or well.
adapted to the region's grow-
ing conditions will typically be
stronger, healthier plants and
able to survive storms better.
In addition to selecting well
adapted plants, be sure to match
the plant's needs to the planting
location. In order for plants to
perform as expected and remain
healthy, know their needs in re-
gards to proper soil conditions,
degree of sunlight, shade toler-

ances and moisture needs. If
you live in an area which can be
flooded by salt water or where
salt spray can be blown onto
your plants, choose plants that
are known to have salt toler-
The second step to minimize
storm damage is to keep your
plants as healthy as possible.
Do not overfertilize or overwa-
ter trees and shrubs. This can
increase crown density and de-
crease the root area and depth;
two conditions which increase
the possibility ,of the tree or
shrub falling in high winds.
Also think about the mature
size of your tree or shrub before
you plant. Overcrowding can
stress plants making them more
susceptible to insect and disease

The next step in reducing
hurricane damage is to practice
proper pruning techniques. We
know from last season's hur-
ricanes that trees that were pre-
ventatively pruned properly had
a higher survival rate than ne-
glected trees.
Regular pruning during a
tree's development is the key to.
creating a strong, resilient tree.
The most ind-resistant form for
a tree is one with a central leader
and a well-spaced framework
of branches around and up and
down the trunk. Many trees can
be grown in this form when-they
are young, but the growth habit
of some species will change to
a multi-trunked,. spreading form
as they mature.
A pruning program should
also eliminate branches with
tight or narrow crotches. Trees
with narrow forks or branches
are likely to split under stress.
Branch crotches or angles from
45 to 90 degrees are less likely
to split than narrow V-crotches
of less than 40 degrees. Some
trees, like Bradford pears, ge-
netically have very narrow and
weak crotch angles.
Faced. with the. threat of a
storm, gardeners who have kept
their trees properly pruned and
with a canopy in proportion to
the trunk have little to do. The
overgrown, neglected tree, how-
ever, is another matter.
Even though the best time to
prune your trees is during the
winter months, there is some
pruning that can be done now
on,that neglected tree that will
improve its overall appearance
and health. Begin by removing
all dead, diseased and damaged
wood and take out all water-
sprouts or root suckers. It is also
important to cut out crossing
branches whichrub against each
Windstorms are always a
matter of concern, but trees that
have been selected properly,
sited with care, and maintained
so as to have a sturdy form and
an open canopy stand the best
chance of surviving intact and
not adding to the damage on
your property.
Tip of the Week. In some
circumstances it is advisable to
have a certified arborist evalu-
ate the health and structure of
your trees. They should evalu-
ate the branch pattern, any cavi-
ties or wounds in the trunks, the
amount and color of the foliage
and what maintenance will best
help to improve your plant. You
can locate a certified arborist in
your area by looking on the In-
ternational Society of Aboricul-
ture website at www.isa-arbor.

Q: Should I use. the Body
Mass Inde.\ to assess my chil-
dren s weight?
A- BodyN Mass- Index (BMI) is
.a useful tool for evaluating most
adults' weight. Poor scores based
on this tool are associated in quite
a few studies with bad health
outcomes, such as heart disease,
cancer and diabetes. However,
BMI was created based on data
about average body composi-
tion. As a result, the BMI value
for those. who have a larger or
smaller than average amount of
bone or muscle may place them
in a category that doesn't really
match their body weight or fat
status. That is why the standard
BMI chart is not appropriate for
athletes who have developed a lot
of muscle tissue, the elderly and
children. To assess a child's or
adolescent's weight, use special
Stools called BMII-for-age growth
charts, which are available at.the
Centers-for Disease Control and
Prevention website (www.cdc.
gov). Because children's healthy
levels of body fat vary.with gen-
der and age, these charts show
that the same BMI can be high
or low at different ages for boys
and girls. To allow for individual
variation and the weight fluctua-
tions that occur during youth, a
wide range of BMIs is consid-
ered .normal for children. Only
when someone is in the top or
bottom five percent for their age
are they labeled o\ern\eighi or
underweight. Those in the heavi-
:est 15 percent are identified as
being at.risk for overweight and
should be monitored.
Q: How much fiber do bran
muffins provide?
A: The amount of fiber varies
with the recipe and the size of
the muffin. Some muffins may
contain quite a bit of bran, while
others have just a trace. Some
small bran muffins provide only
one gram of fiber, which h is the
same as a slice of white bread.
Bigger muffins contain more fi-
ber, but also more calories and
possibly more fat. A giant four-
or six-ounce muffin might sup-
ply 5 to 12 grams of fiber and
425 to 530 calories, which is
as many calories as a couple of
doughnuts. Despite what you
might' think, most commercial
bran muffins are made \% ith \\hire
flour. Since fiber and nutrients
are higher when whole-wheat
flour is used, try making your
own muffins. You can also use
a moderate amount of a healthy
fat like canola oil and avoid the
large amounts of sugar found in
those commercial muffins that
make them seem sometimes
more like cake. Muffins are easy
to make. They can be frozen for
later use.
Q: Can myhairloss berelated
to my diet?
A: Yes. A common reason for
excessive hair loss among wom-
en is too much.dieting. Hair loss
can occur when people consume
too few calories or have an in-
adequate intake of protein, iron,
Sor zinc. The risk of hair loss is
one of the many reasons why
Syou should lose weight gradu-
all \\ith. sensible, balanced eat-,

ing. Although hair loss among
men can be caused by hereditary
male-pattern baldness, a variety
of physical problems' can also
result in hair loss for both sexes.
These problems should be dis-
cussed with your physician. Cer-
tain illnesses, fungal infections
and even side effects from some
medications can cause hair loss.
Some people also' experience
hair loss two to three nionth- af-
ter their body undergoes a period
of major stress, like surgery, pro-
longed fever, or childbirth.
SQ: Is olive oil a source of an-
A: Yes. There are primarily
two kinds of antioxidants in ol-
ive oil: phenols and vitamin E.
The amount of phytochemicals
in olive oil called phenols varies
depending on how the oil is pro-
duced. Extra virgin oil is higher
in these phenols than light olive
oils., Olive oil also supplies the
antioxidant vitamin E. Although
olive oil contains less vitamin E
than several vegetable oils that
have more polyunsaturated fat,
olive oil is mostly composed of
monounsaturated fat. This is an
important difference. Polyun-
saturated fat is less stable and
more vulnerable to oxidation
reactions than monounsaturated
fat. Human studies suggest that
olive oil, because of its mono-
unsaturated fat, can help prevent
LDL ("bad") cholesterol from
converting to its most damaging
form. By raising the antioxidant
content of blood, olive oil could
possibly lead to less DNA dam-
age that can initiate cancer.
Q: How good are frozen waf-
fles as a breakfast or snack?
A: Just like: cereal, the kind
of waffles you choose deter-
mines their nutrition qualities.
Some frozen waffles are made
only with refined flour, whereas
those with at least some whole-
grain flour provide more fiber
and nutrients. For people who
have trouble meeting their cal-
cium needs with dairy products
or other enriched foods, there
are ,even some frozen waffles
that supply 30 percent of the
Daily Value (DV) for calcium. A
glass of milk contains the same
amount of calcium. You should
always check the fat content of
waffles, too,- hen choosing.
The ultimate nutritional, value
of waffles, ho.me\er. depends
on how you serve them. If you
spread a waffle with peanut but-
Ster and place apple or pear slices
or raisins on top, you have a
healthy, portable treat that will
satisfy your hunger much longer
than a waffle topped with butter
:or margarine and syrup. Waffles
spread with vanilla yogurt and
a variety of fruits like kiwi, ba-
nana and fresh or frozen berries
are also excellent breakfasts or
Q: Is stevia recommended as
a sugar replacement?

A: Stevia rebaudiana, com-
monly referred to as stevia,
comes from a small shrub. In the
U.S., it is promoted as a dietary
supplement or sweetener. These
two uses are regulated under
different laws. It is legal to sell
stevia in the U.S. as a dietary
supplement, because no dangers
have been proven to its use. Some
studies suggest that stevia could
help control high blood pressure
and diabetes, but only a few well-
controlled human studies have
been done. If you really want to
control high blood pressure and
diabetes. you should concentrate
on the primary life-syle steps of
portion control, regular exercise,

balanced eating and sodium re-
striction. As a sweetener, the
Food and Drug Administration
has not approved stevia for use
since adequate evidence of its
safety has not been presented.
In fact, research shows that the
main chemical in stevia can be
converted in the laboratory to
a compound that causes gene
changes. More study is needed
to learn whether these changes
could lead to cancer in people.
The potential impact of stevia
or any other sugar replacement
on weight control, however, is
easily o\erestimated. Excess
weight comes from consuming
more calories than. you burn. At

USDA to extend Conservation Reserve Program contracts

ers and ranchers with certain
Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) contracts expiring this
year may extend their contracts
for one year, announced Kevin
Kelley, State Executive Direc-
tor for USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA).
"The expiration affects ap-
proximately 1,969 acres now
protected by the CRP in 10
Florida counties," said Kel-
ley. "Extending certain exist-
ing contracts will ensure that
CRP's environmental benefits
are preserved."
Local FSA offices will no-
tify eligible CRP participants
of their option to modify and
extend their CRP contracts.
The deadline to apply for this
extension is Sept. 2, 2005.
The extension option ap-
plies to CRP participants with
contracts scheduled to expire
on Sept. 30, 2005, and whose.
original contract with the ex-
tension will not exceed 15
years. About 7,000 contracts,
nationwide, are affected.
The, extension will not
change participants' rental
rates. All or a portion of the
acreage under contract may be
included in an extension, but
no new, acreage may be added.
Obligations and responsibili-
ties under the original contract
continue to apply to contracts
that are modified and extend-
USDA is not planning to
offer a general CRP signup
in fiscal year 2005. However,
producers may continue to en-
roll relatively small, highly-de-
sirable acreage, such as filter
strips and riparian buffers, in
the continuous CRP at any time
at their local FSA office.
The CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram available to agricultural
producers to help them safe-
guard environmentally sensi-
tive land. Producers enrolled

in CRP plant long-term, re-
.source-conserving covers to
improve the quality of water,
control soil erosion, and en-
hance wildlife habitat. In re-
turn, FSA provides participants
with rental payments for 10- to
