Fleeing suspect

races through

Liberty County

before standoff

with officers in

Chattahoochee
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A man involved in a Greensboro
shooting raced through northern
Liberty County before fleeing
back into Gadsden County late
-Monday night, where he was shot
and wounded after a one-hour
standoff.
The suspect, identified as
33-year-old Cedric Goodson
of Chattahoochee, was known to
be armed with a 9mm gun. Dur-
ing the pursuit, Goodson headed
into Liberty County on Hwy. 12
North around 11 p.m., according to
Major Donnie Conyers of the Lib-
erty County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies laid out spike strips ahead
on the road, but Goodson made a
sudden turn onto County Road 270
before reaching the strips.
After driving into Chattahooch-
ee, Goodson crashed into a small
wooded area next to a home on
Lincoln Dri ve, according to a report
from the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Department.
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris
Young and several deputies made
numerous attempts to get Goodson
to drop his gun and surrender with-
out success.
After about an hour, Goodson
stepped out of his car with the
handgun and was shot once when
he failed to heed a deputy's warning
to drop his weapon.
The suspect was taken to
Tallahassee Memorial Regional
Medical Center for treatment.
He was listed in stable condition
Tuesday.
Goodson is being charged in
connection with a shooting that
happened at 10:25 p.m. Monday
in the Greensboro area which left
a 49-year-old man with a gunshot
wound to the arm.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement is assisting the Gads-
den County Sheriff's Office in the
investigation.

a vehicle on State Road 20 in Calhoun

his 2006 Kawasaki hit a 2002 Ford pickup
driven, by Donnie R. Southwell, 57, of
Bascom, Ga.
According to the report filed by FHP
Trooper Philip Spaziante, the motorcycle

cycle and fatally injured. The motorcycle
skidded on its side and came to a final rest
facing north, approximately a mile east of
State Road 73.
Southwell was not injured. Damages
to his truck were estimated at $1,000.
The homicide investigation was con-

Groundbreaking set next week for new grocery store in Bristol


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Groundbreaking ceremonies
will be held at noon Tuesday,
April 4 in Bristol to kickoff con-
struction of a new Piggly Wiggly
store in Bristol.
The new grocery store will
be located just east of the Dol-
lar General on the south side of
State Road 20. "We're clearing
the property now and construc-
tion should take between six and


nine months," according to Chad
Ramsey, who will serve as gen-
eral manager over this store as
well as the one in Blountstown,
under the direction of his sister,
Rebecca DeVuyst.
"The new store will be simi-
lar to the old store, but we have
made a lot of improvements,"
he said. The redesign includes
wider aisles and an area outside
the front door for buggies to be


stored.
The new building will be
27,000 square feet, which is the
same size as the Blountstown
store, Ramsey said. Later,
there will also be room for three
smaller businesses to locate
adjoining the store on the lot,
which measures approximately
4.5 acres.
Ramsey said they plan to hire
between 40 and 50 employees


and may hold a job fair later in
the year. In the meantime, any-
one interested in a job can apply
through the Blountstown store.
Matt Bynog of Bristol has
been hired to manage the Bristol
store. Phillip Pate, also of Bristol,
will take on the duties of meat
manager and Frieda Schwende-
man has been named produce
manager.
Ramsey said both stores will


carry the same items at the
same price. "If you can get it in
Blountstown, you can get it in
Bristol," he said.
"We're ready to get over
there and start selling gr, cerie,."
Ramsey said.
,"I've already set my clocks
on Bristol time," he said, add-
ing, "Bristol's been good to us
and we're going to be good to
Bristol."

Trio charged with stealing


fuel from fire department


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Three Calhoun County teenag-
ers are facing charges for steal-
ing fuel from the Mossy Pond
Volunteer Fire Department after
they were caught on audio tape
planning another theft.
Arrested March 6 was John
Carr and Skylar Durden, both
18, along with a third suspect
who is not named because he is
a juvenile.
Because the fire department
had been plagued with a series
of fuel thefts for several months,
Fire Chief Rolf Myhammer
moved the gas tank from the fire
house to his home in hopes of
ending the problem.
After a recent check of the
fuel -left in the tank following a
200-gallon delivery in January,
Myhammer discovered that 100
gallons had been removed over
the past two months, according to
a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department. Of that
amount, the VFD had used only
30 gallons.
Myhammer received a clue to
the thefts when someone called
his home and played part of a tape
recording on his answering ma-
chine in which two males "were
conspiring to steal gasoline from
Myhammer's residence."
The fire chief recognized one
of the voices on the tape, which
belonged to a 17-year-old who
had served as a junior firefighter
with the department for the past
two years.
An investigator with the sher-
iff's department met with the
suspect and played the tape. The
boy then admitted to taking part
in the thefts and identified the
other voice on the tape as that of
Durden.
The teen admitted. to one in-
stance where he knew Myham-
mer was not home and happened


to meet up with Durden. The
boy said he asked Durden if he
needed any fuel and told him to
meet him at a stop sign in Mossy
Pond. Durden arrived with Carr
and the three went to the fire
chief's home, according to the
juvenile.
Durden remained on the road
as a lookout while Carr and the
juvenile went through a gate at
the rear of Myhammer's property
and took some fuel, according
to the report from the sheriff's
department. The 17-year-old


acknowledged that he had taken
fuel from the tank several times
in the past.
Carr and the juvenile were
charged with petty theft and tres-
passing on property other than a
structure. The stolen gas was val-
ued at $194. Durden was charged
with being a principal in the first
degree to petty theft for his part
in serving as a lookout.
The two 18-year-olds were
arrested March 6 and released
the next day on their own recog-
nizance.

Melissa Muza appointed


chair of Liberty for Davis


TAMPA After becoming
the first candidate for gover-
nor to visit every county in
Florida, Democrat Jim Davis
announced he has appointed
county chairs in each of the
state's 67 counties. In Liberty
County, Davis tapped Melissa
Muza to spearhead his local
organizing efforts.
"I am honored that Melissa
has agreed to donate her tal-
ent to build our campaign or-
ganization in Liberty County.
It's because of the. commit-
ment and hard work of people
like Melissa. that we'll win
this race and bring the kind
of change that's desperately
needed in Tallahassee," said
Jim Davis.
The slate of elected officials,
teachers, seniors, small busi-


Democratic Candidate for
Governor Jim Davis taps
chairs in all 67 counties


ness owners, nurses, veterans
- and even some Republicans
- sends a strong signal about
Davis's deep and diverse sup-


port across Florida. Davis's
robust statewide organization
is an important part of his
strategy for winning, not just
the Democratic primary, but
also the general election.
Davis said that his state-
wide organization represents
his commitment to competing
for votes in every community
in Florida and that he will be
a governor who everyone in
Florida can be proud of.
"When I launched my cam-
paign, I set a goal of visiting
every county because I want
to be a governor for all Flo-
ridians," said Davis. "I've
met and talked with voters
all across Florida. From rural
counties to urban counties,
from small counties to large,
Floridians want a governor
who will listen to them and re-
spect them. I will be that gov-
ernor."
Two weeks ago at a town
hall meeting, Davis unveiled
his vision for Keeping Flori-
da's Promise to our children,
our seniors, our families, and
our communities. Among his
ideas, Davis proposed invest-
ing $1 billion from this year's
budget surplus to create a
Teacher Endowment Fund that
would give Florida's teachers
a permanent salary increase.
Davis also discussed his
specific ideas for overhauling
the FCAT, reducing the cost
of prescription drugs, helping
small businesses afford health
insurance for their employees,
protecting Florida's precious
quality of life, and bringing
broadband Internet to every
community.

A new statewide voter registration database
that contains.the name and registration infor-
mation of every registered voter in the state.
As' a result, a voter who has moved from one
Florida County to another since last voting
will now do an address change by simply
completing a Florida Voter Registration Ap-
plication.

A voter is now required to provide current
and valid photo/signature identification (no
exceptions). Avoter can no longer sign an af-
fidavit if they do rot have appropriate identifi-
cation. That voter will still be able to vote but
must vote a provisional ballot. A provisional
ballot is a conditional ballot issued to a voter
whose eligibility cannot be determined or has
been challenged. Validity of these ballots are
determined by the canvassing board.

The no-solicitation law now prohibits any
person or group from soliciting voters inside
the polling place or within 100 feet of the
entrance of the polling place or early voting
site, without exception.

FORGIVENESS THROUGH
CHRIST'S BLOOD
Text: Ephesians 1:1-14
According to Hershel Ford, Martin
Luther went to sleep one night trou-
bled about his sin. He dreamed that an
angel was writing on chalkboard. Lu-
ther's name was written at the top of
the chalkboard. The angel was listing
all of Luther's sins. Luther "shud-
dered in despair, feeling that his sins
were so many that he could never be
forgiven." But suddenly, a nail pierced
hand appeared writing above the list,
"The blood of Jesus Christ His Son
cleanses us from all sin." Luther was
amazed. As the wounded hand wrote
and the blood flowed, it washed the
record of his sins away.
Redemption and forgiveness of
sins is through the blood of Christ.
God is holy. He is completely, totally,
utterly separated from sin and evil.
God commands, "Be holy because I,
the Lord your God, am holy (Le 19:2
NIV)."
The problem is that we are sinful
creatures. "For all have sinned and
fall short of the glory of God (Ro 3:23
NIV)." Because God is just, there
has to be an accounting for sin. "So
then, each of us will give an account
of himself to God (Ro 14:12 NIV)."
When sin is found in us, we are con-
demned to die an eternal death, "For
the wages of sin is death, but the gift
of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus
our Lord (Ro 6:23)."
Only the blood of Christ could re-
deem us from eternal death. "When
Christ came as high priest...He went
through the greater and more perfect
tabernacle... not a part of this cre-
ation...He entered the Most Holy
Place once for all by His own blood,
having obtained eternal redemption
(He 11&12 NIV)." We don't have to
pay back the debt of our sin. Christ
did it for us. We only need to accept it.
That is forgiveness.

thank you to the Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital Cardiology

Take a break from the fast-paced world of cell phones, computers,
cars, and demanding schedules. Take a trip with us on June 19.and return
on June 25 to enjoy the simple life found in Ohio's Amish country. At
first, you may feel as if time is standing still, but you'll soon discover that
the Amish folk are highly enterprising and productive. They have simply
chosen to maintain their traditional beliefs and customs, continuing a
lifestyle uncomplicated by the ways of the modem-day world.
Attractions to visit are Longaberger's Home Office (built into a gi-
ant basket), Farm at Walnut Creek, buggt rides at Yoder's Amish Farm,
Lehman's Hardware, and many other mystery stops. We will also see
many of the Amish bringing their animals to the auction in horse drawn
wagons as well as all the outside vendors.
The trip includes: Motorcoach transportation, four dinners (including
two at an Amish farm), four lunches (including one at an Amish farm)
six continental breakfasts, six nights lodging, a step-on guide and many
other extras. Cost of the trip is $1,084/single, $799 PP/double (each

It takes a lot of work and time to get funding


To the editor:
I would like to enter a rebuttal
to Latasha Parker's letter to the
editor on March 22nd concerning
two schools. I'm no expert on
the school system. However, I
do know the 800 pound gorilla
in this fight is the Florida
Department of Education.
Since it funds the majority of the
money to operate the schools and
virtually all of the money used
for construction, their approval is
what really matters. As someone
once said there is a corollary to
the Golden Rule. "The One with
the Gold Rules." I'd suggest Ms.
Parker organize her neighbors
and make a concerted effort
to solicit the help of their state
representatives and senator in
getting funding for the Hosford
schools.
As to ball fields, it is my
understanding that almost all
of the improvements to the
facilities at Veterans Memorial
Park were paid for by grant
money from the state. These
grants didn't just fall from
heaven like manna. Hard


working people wrote and
followed up on these requests
and made it happen. There are
surely well-qualified folks in
Hosford who can do the same
thing if you want quality sports
facilities.
Where I -can speak with some
authority is about the train in the
park. The Veterans Memorial
Railroad is not an entity
of the county government.
It is a Florida non-profit
corporation formed to build and
operate a train for the enjoyment
of children from age 2 to 85 no
matter where they live. It was
only made possible by a lot
of begging for contributions
and even more by a lot of hard
work. We raised about $18,000
-from fundraisers like raffles,
rummage sales, poinsettia sales
and our popular Halloween and
Christmas spectacular runs. We
were also fortunate in receiving
about $17,000 in contributions
from businesses and individuals.
Added to this is $33,000 in
loans from members of the
railroad group. The county has


Social Workers Month recognizes
contributions in many walks of life
To the editor:
"Life's Journey. Help Starts Here." This theme for National
Professional Social Work Month captures the essence of professional
social workers' mission. On behalf of the Big Bend Hospice board
of Directors, I extend to all social workers in our eight-county
community our heartfelt appreciation for the outstanding services
they provide.
Big Bend Hospice's 31 social workers collaborate with colleagues
in Leon, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Gadsden, Liberty, Wakulla and
Franklin counties to meet the needs of our patients and families as
they face the end of life's journey. These professionals at hospitals,
nursing homes, assisted living facilities, school and senior centers
combine resources to meet unique needs.
Imagine being confronted with negotiating the Medicare and
Medicaid maze, seeking disability coverage, finding daily support
and care, acquiring medical equipment or simply providing three
meals a day for people too sick to shop and cook. Professional
social workers know how to negotiate the mazes, how to expedite
processes and how to find the services-that meet the needs.
Big Bend Hospice counselors specialize in the field of end of
life care and in grief and loss counseling. The Big Bend Hospice
Caring Tree counselors are trained to work with youth. They form an
outstanding team working with case managers, discharge planners
and other social workers provide the highest level of care in the
Big Bend area while promoting dignity for everyone, especially
the most vulnerable.
Thank you for caring!
Mollie Hill, Chairman
Big Bend Hospice Board of Directors



CCVFD offering free smoke detectors
Carr-Clarksville Volunteer Fire Department has free smoke detec-
tors just for the asking. We urge everyone in the county to have at
least one smoke detector in the home.

than happy to get you however many you need .------


been very generous in allowing
us to build in the park and erect
our facilities. Their only major
assistance was supplying us with
a number of dump trucks of fill
dirt for building the initial right
of way. So for about $70,000
you can have a train in Hosford.
However, don't plan to make a
fortune at it. On many public
run days, we do not receive
enough contributions to pay for
the locomotive fuel.
Also, realize the grant
application and approval
process makes a snail seem
like a race horse. We started
four years ago applying for a
state grant to build a museum
as part of the railroad. We have
still not received it though we
hear constantly that it is just
around the corner. So while
you are waiting for your grant
ship to come on, come on over
to Bristol and take a free ride
on the park train. We run the
public on the second Saturday
of the month and offer special
parties on request.

Q: Is apple juice the best drink
for toddlers?
A: Apple juice can supply
some of the health-promoting
phytochemicals found in apples,
but there's no reason to use it
as a toddler's main beverage.
For a juice with high nutritional
value, you can choose one that's
a good source of vitamin C. This
choice could be orange juice,
apple juice fortified with vita-
min C, or a 100 percent juice
blend that supplies vitamin C.
Regardless of what juice your
toddler drinks, childhood nutri-
tion experts warn against giving
your toddler multiple glasses of
juice between meals for several
reasons. First, too much juice
can leave a toddler too full to get
adequate nutrition at meals. Sec-
ond, the calories from excessive
amounts of juice between meals
can cause undesirable fast weight
gain. Third, frequent juice drink-
ing may teach children to turn
to flavored beverages to satisfy
their thirst, when they should
learn the healthy long-term habit
of relying on water. At meals,
toddlers should drink milk, or a
calcium-fortified alternative.
Q: Are the bottled waters
with added vitamins supposed to
make up for poor eating or pio-
vide extra nutrients for people
who eat well?
A: Vitamin-enhanced bottled
waters don't accomplish either
objective. None of them pro-
vides a full array of vitamins and
minerals, so if your diet is imbal-
anced, you'll still need a multi-
vitamin and mineral supplement.
If you already eat a balanced
diet, these drinks won't do much
good for you. Neither waters
nor pills fortified with vitamins
provide the vast assortment of
flavonoids, carotenoids and
other natural substances found in
vegetables, fruits, whole grains
and beans that seem to play so
large a part in these foods' vital
contribution to health. A bal-
anced, mostly plant-based diet
supplies levels of nutrients like
vitamin C and magnesium well
beyond what these bottled waters
contain. In fact, if you drink vi-
tamin-enhanced water between
meals, vitamins like E and D
in it may not be well absorbed
because you need to eat some
fat-containing food at the same
time. Furthermore, some brands
of nutrient-added waters have as
much as 125 calories per bottle,
which is a much greater amount
than you'd get from a piece of
fruit with an equivalent amount
of vitamin C. If a fruit-flavored
bottled water helps you cut
back on soft drinks and boosts
Your consumption of water,
you should look for calorie-free
flavored water without added
nutrients. These bottled waters
should have the added advantage
of being less expensive.
Q: If I want a pizza with meat
on it, is there a nutritional dif-
ference between pepperoni and
sausage?
A: The sodium content for
pizzas with these two toppings
. is usually similar:. Their amount


of the same brand of sausage
pizza, two medium slices will
-have from one to five grams less
of fat and 10 to 30 fewer calo-
ries. For even lower fat content


than the amount in plain cheese
or vegetable pizzas. Pepperoni
pizza, however, is usually lower
in fat than sausage pizza. By
choosing pepperoni pizza instead

Another big savings in calorie
and fat content is available, if
you purchase a thin or hand-

biggest impact of all, however,
instead of eating a lot of pizza,
eat only one or two slices and
complete your meal with a veg-
etable-filled salad.

Portions of the Hickory Mound Unit

remain closed-for improvements
Access to the impoundment on the Hickory Mound Unit of the
Big Bend Wildlife Management Area in Taylor County remains
closed for repair and improvements, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officials.
The FWC closed the impoundment in April 2005 for improvements
to the dike. In July 2005, Hurricane Dennis caused extensive damage
to the dike. As a result, workers suspended construction until after
hurricane season. According to officials, construction should be
complete in June, and the impoundment will reopen as soon as
possible thereafter.
Closed roads include portions of Coker Road (south from the
junction of Swartz Tram) and Cow Creek Grade (south from the
junction of Swartz Tram). Signs and gates are in place on areas
closed to public access. It may be necessary to close the portion of
Swartz Tram temporarily between Cow Creek
Grade and Coker Road if safety becomes an issue with the high
volume of heavy equipment traffic, officials said.
"The reconstruction of the impoundment dike is designed to allow
this structure to withstand a 50-year storm by drastically reducing the
number of breaches that have occurred in the past," explained David
Nicholson, district biologist at the FWC Big Bend Field Office in
Perry.
Major portions of the construction project will include installation
of two 1,000-foot concrete geoweb spillways, four 5-foot by 5-foot
box culverts, one aluminum water control structure, and placement
of approximately 8,672 tons of rip-rap material to reinforce the dike
in areas that have been susceptible to storm erosion in the past.
Plans also include additional armoring of the dike in areas damaged
by Hurricane Dennis.
"Ultimately, these upgrades will allow biologists to have better
control over the.flow of water into and out of the impoundment,
allowing FWC staff to manage better for waterfowl and other wildlife
species. This increased management ability should allow for higher
quality recreational opportunities in the future," Nicholson said.
According to Nicholson, this project is being funded by FWC,
Ducks Unlimited, Taylor County, the National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation and a North American Wetlands Conservation Act
grant.
"We realize this property is a high use area for crabbers,
fisherman, huntersiand-other outdoor enthusiasts. As such, we regret
the inconvenience that our users have to endure, but we hope the
mproveint9s,..will, outweigh these,' horttertnhinconVeUieh6s,.'.

First annual Bulldog Club Shootout Saturday


LCHS BULLDOG CLUB
- Attention local marksmen!
Come display your shooting
expertise this Saturday, April
i. The Liberty County High
School Bulldog Club is spon-
soring the first annual Bulldog
Club Shootout.
Shooting categories include
rifle, both ceiterfire and rimfire,
shotguns and archery. Prizes
for the gun divisions are $100
for third place, $200 for second
place and $350 for first place.
Registration for the competi-
tion will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday
morning at the LCHS football
'field and at the Calhoun County
Gun Range in Blountstown.
There will be a $10 entry fe'
that can be paid at the regis-
tration or to any Bulldog Club
member before Saturday..
If you have any questions
regarding the shootout, call
Mitchell Larkins at 643-2614.
BASEBALL School
was out last week, but.Bulldog
baseball 'was in session. The
boys from LCHS pulled off two
more victories to run their 2006
record to 11-1.
On March 20, the Dawgs tray-


eled to the beautiful forgotten
coast and delivered an.ugly 15-
2 whipping to the Apalachicola
Sharks. Cameron O'Neal was
the hero of the day. Not only did
O'Neal lead the Bulldogs by
going 4 for 4, but the junior also
managed to pitch a dominating,
complete game.
The following day, the go-
ing was considerably tougher
against the visiting Sneads Pi-
rates. The score was knotted at
2-2 in the bottom of the sixth
inning when the Bulldogs' re-
lentless bats finally got to the
Pirates' impressive hurler, D.
Jones. LCHS hung 4 runs on
Jones in the bottom of the sixth,
capitalizing on several Sneads
errors in the process. Those
extra runs would be more than
enough to enable senior pitcher
Jace Ford finish off the Pirates
in the seventh with a final score
of 6-2. The seven-strikeout per-
formance was Ford's second
complete game of the year. The
seniors also led the way offen-
sively. Wade McCoy and Heath
Flanagan both contributed two
hits a piece and Ford's battery
,mate, Shawn Geltzo, added a


long home run.

Up it goes. Where it stops, nobody knows Gas prices are rising


TALLAHASSEE Area gas
prices are back on the move,
rising steadily since a brief lull
following price spikes related
to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
this past September. But unlike
the last increase, experts are un-
certain whether prices will fall
again in the near future.
According to AAA South,
the average price of gasoline in
the Tallahassee area is $2.57,
up from $2.26 a month ago and
$2.09 a year ago. Because the
cost of crude oil remains around
$60 a barrel there appears to be
no immediate relief for com-
muters.


An easy way to negate the
impact of rising gas prices is
reducing trips and sharing the
cost of transportation. Com-
muter Services of North Florida
offers several cost-free services
to help Big Bend residents re-
duce their dependency on sin-
gle-occupancy vehicle travel
and switch to a commute option
that consumes less gas.
Commuters choose commute
options based on personal eco-
nomics and convenience. With
gas prices becoming a budget
burden, Commuter Services
wants to accommodate all com-
muters within our eight-county

Termites in mulch, fact or fiction


Over the past few weeks, gar-
deners have been inundated with
an email concerning Formosan
termites being spread in mulch
from Louisiana. This email has
captured everyone's attention,
but is it true?
The rumor swirling about the
Internet is that termites are be-
ing -spread throughout the coun-
try by large chain stores via bags
of landscape mulch. The rumor
implies that the trees that were
blown down following last year's
hurricanes were turned into mulch
and the state is trying to get rid of
tons and tons of this mulch to any
state or company who will come
and haul it away.
It is true that there is a lot of
cellulose debris (wood) in Loui-
siana following hurricanes Ka-
trina and Rita. It is also true that
Formosan subterranean termites
are known to be in the parishes
affected by the hurricanes.
And while it is true that ter-


by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

mites can be found in mulch,
their survivability rate is low for
several reasons. The ability of the
termites to survive the chipping
process to create mulch is poor;
additionally, once separated from
the colony, their ability to sur-
vive further decreases. Finally,
even when termites are found in
mulch, mulch-fed termites suffer
significantly lower survivorship.
In terms of spreading inva-
sive species like the Formosan
subterranean termite, the greater
problem is associated with the
transport of large chunks of wood
containing enough termites to
sustain reproductive forms. For
example, infested railroad ties
used in the landscape or salvaged
timbers from razed structures.
These are known to be associated

with the spread of the Formosan
subterranean termite.
This is not to say that termites
are not found in association with
mulch. Mulch increases the abil-
ity of termites to survive where
they are already established by
keeping the soil moist and tem-
peratures moderate. Mulch laid
too thickly, greater than four to
six inches deep, can provide a
"bridge" over the treated perim-
eter of a house, allowing termites
to walk over from the landscape
to the house and avoid contact
with soil that has been treated
with termiticides.
Mulch is an important part
of landscape maintenance. The
experts, however, recommend
maintaining a zone of at least one
foot around the outside of your
home that is clear of plants and
other landscaping materials. This
reduces soil moisture and makes it
easier to inspect for shelter tubes
coming up from the ground.
There are numerous ways
you can reduce the chance of
your home being infested by
Formosa an d other subterra-
nean termites. Avoid wood to
ground contact, including storing
mulch off the ground. Remove
any wood or cellulose-contain-
ing material (such as cardboard)
that is in direct contact with bare
ground. Do not leave wooden
items such as planters, trellises,
railroad ties, firewood, and stakes
on top of or in bare ground. In-
stall rain gutters to prevent wa-
ter from dripping down around
the perimeter of your home. Air
conditioner condensate lines and
gutter downspouts should empty
out at least one foot away from
the base of the home. Remove
dead trees and plants including
the roots and stumps, if pos-
sible, from your yard. For more
tips on protecting your home,
review the UF/IFAS publication
entitled "Formosan Subterranean
Termite." It's available online at
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/MG064 or
by calling your local Extension
Office.
Finally, maintain termite pro-
tection measures for your house.
Protection measures most com-
monly include soil treatments,
bait systems, or wood protection
measures. Remember to use a li-
censed and reputable pest control
company.
The Louisiana Department of
Agriculture imposed a quarantine
for the Formosan subterranean
termite on October 3, 2005, in all
the parishes affected by the hur-
ricanes. To report a quarantine
violation, call (225) 925-3763.
The Department of Agriculture
and Forestry's Web site, www.
ldaf.state.la.us, and the LSU Ag-
Center's Web site, www.lsuag-
center.com, contain information
about the quarantines, Formosan
termites and debris disposal.

Healthy at Every Size: Helping chronic dieters reshape their thinking


by Sandy Miller Hays,
Agricultural Research Service
Honestly-it seems as
though everyone in America is
on a diet these days (or needs
to be). How's this for an aston-
ishing statistic: An estimated 64-
percent of all American adults
are overweight or obese! Even
worse, nearly 9 million Ameri-
can children aged 6 years or
older are obese.
Happily, the scientists at the
Agricultural Research Service
are all over this problem, tack-
lifig it from every possible di-
rection. And since this is such
an important health topic for all
of us, throughout this month I'll
be focusing my columns on a
variety of those ARS projects.
Let's kick things off with an
amazing concept: "Healthy at
Every Size."
We've all been sold on the
idea that "Size 4 is Outstand-
ing, Size 2 is Even Better."
But realistically, how many of
us can be a Size 4? So rather
than setting a goal that very
few of us can ever attain-and
therefore making us feel so bad
that we give up before we even
.start trm ing-the ARS scientists
haN e taken another approach:
Whatever size \ ou are. there are
things you:can do to improve
your health status-.
The ARS scientists' "Healthy
ai E\ ery Siz e" srateg., a health-
centered program rather than
a ',Aeight-centered program, is
aimed at helping chronic di-
eter, reshape their: thinidng.
shed unhealthy habits, adopt
ne\ patterns of eating. become
more phN sicallh active and in-
crease their self-esteem. What s
a chronic dieter"? ProbabI)
most of us; it's defined as some-
one who has either failed at a se-
lquence of diets, or, after having
successfully lost eight, gained
back the pounds and started di-
eting all over again.
To trn out the "Every Size"
concept. the ARS scientists di-
vided 78 obese women, ages
30 to 45, into two groups: the
health-centered Every Size
team and the weight-centered
traditional diet team. The teams
met for specialized, 90-min-
ute educational sessions every"
-week for the first six months of
the year-long study, then -met
,for six once-a-month sessions.
Both groups learned about
nutrition basics. Beyond that.
the weight-centered team re-
ceived instruction in topics typ-
ically covered in many popular
weight-loss programs: how to
monitor their weight, control
their eating and exercise brisk-
ly.
By contrast, the Every Size
group learned how to build
self-esteem, how to recognize
and follow the body's natu-
ral cues for hunger and satiety
(that "full" feeling), and how to
make healthy choices at meal-
times and in between. Perhaps


most importantly, they learned
to enjoy some form of physical
activity, -such as walking, just
for the fun of it, rather tlfan spe-
cifically for the purpose of los-
ing weight.
At the end of two years, a to-
tal of 38 women-19 from each
team-participated in follow-
up lab tests and questionnaires.
The Every Size women had
kept their weight stable, not
losing a lot, but not gaining a
lot, either. And in case you're
thinking "Aha!", the dieters did
lose weight by the sixth month
of the study, but they'd gained
those pounds back at the two-
year checkpoint.
Of course, weight isn't the
only indicator of health, and
this is where the Every Size
women shone. At the start and
end of the study, all of the vol--


-unteers' total cholesterol and
systolic blood pressure were
in the- normal range. But with-
in this range, the Every Size
women lowered their total cho-
lesterol and their sy stolic blood
pressure numbers and were able
to maintain those reductions for
the entire length of the study.
By contrast, the dieters
didn't lower their total choles-
terol at any point in the study.
Although they were able to
lower their systolic blood pres-
sure at the six-month point in
their dieting, those improve-
ments had vanished by the end
of the study.
Also, the Every Size women
at the two-year point had nearly
quadrupled the time they spent
on exercise, compared to the
start of the study, whereas the
dieters weren't keeping up with


their exercise by the two-year
mark.
The secret, the scientists say,


is focusing on your health, rath-
er than the number on the bath-
room scale. With the "Healthy
at Every Size" approach, you
may find the key to breaking
out of that endless cycle of diet-
ing and find yourself leading a
healthier, happier life!

SHARING A POSITIVE MESSAGE
The noise levels in the Liberty County High School gym were louder than usual when students crowded
-:; .in for a program featuring the band "Chalice" Monday morning in Bristol. The band played
L. some fast-paced and uplifting songs designed to get kids' attention while hammering home
a message about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and peer pressure. Along with the
music, a video was presented about three young teens
S" whose bad decisions led to tragic consequences.
Students then listened to a motivational speaker
and laughed as classmates and school officials
Were brought forward to take their turn behind
;4 a guitar or at the microphone. The program was
S:. ''presented by an organization called Take
Control USA which travels the country
S'to share with students the importance of creating
..,- '4!-., *positive goals and following their dreams.

No freshwater
fishing license
required April 1-2
The first 3,000 anglers to buy
a five-year freshwater fishing
license between now and April
30 will receive a package of free
fishing equipment in the mail.
The license costs $61.50, and
anglers can check MyFWC.com/
Fishing to find out if the offer is
still in effect. The Web site also
provides up-to-date fishing sites
and forecast information.
Shakespeare, Berkley, Central
Florida Visitors Bureau, and
Legend Labs are among sponsors
providing a free soft-side tackle
box, Gulp baits, hooks, bait saver
and even a fishing towel. All
'license sales support fish and
wildlife conservation in Florida
and help recover federal excise
taxes that anglers and boaters
have paid into the system for use
in Florida on Federal Aid in Sport
Fish Restoration projects.
Also, free freshwater fishing
weekend is April 1-2. It exempts
residents and non-residents
from freshwater fishing license
requirements for those two days.
All other rules apply, and the
exemption does not extend to
saltwater fishing.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission says the
free weekend is a great chance to
take a buddy who's been wanting
to give it a try or for parents who
haven't bought a license yet to
take their children fishing for the
first time.
