Florida tomatoes are
safe from Salmonella
outbreak, agriculture
commissioner said

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that Florida-grown
tomatoes have been deemed safe by the U.S..
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has
A been added to the agency's list of states with
"safe to eat" tomatoes.
"I was confident Florida was not the problem
and was not the source of the salmonella
outbreak impacting other states," Bronson said.
"Florida tomato growers have one of the most
stringent tomato production programs in the
nation. They initiated the heightened safety
standards several years ago to ensure public
confidence in their product."
After reviewing Florida's safety initiative, the
timing of the illness outbreak and the timing of
tomato harvesting, FDA added Florida to the
"safe to eat" list. Growers will provide a
certificate with each shipment verifying the
tomatoes are from Florida. Bronson points out
that the tomatoes that are now being harvested
and shipped from Florida did not even exist
when the salmonella outbreak occurred. He
says Florida growers sell an abundance of their
product in Florida and there have been no
reported illness in the state. Florida growers
also sell predominantly to eastern states and the
bulk of illnesses have occurred in western
states.
"It is critical that consumers know that our
tomatoes are safe and delicious," Bronson said.
"Our growers have worked hard to ensure the
utmost safety of their product."
Currently, tomato harvesting is under way in
three areas of the state Quincy, Ruskin and
Palmetto, near the Tampa area.
Growers have already had truckloads of
tomatoes turned away by retailers concerned
about the salmonella outbreak that has
impacted mostly western states. Retailers are
being notified of Florida's addition to the "safe
to eat" list and it is hoped Florida tomatoes will,
be back on store shelves immediately and
enjoyed by all.
In 2006-2007, Florida tomato industry had
$464 million in cash receipts. They have an
estimated direct and indirect economic value of
$1.1 billion in total direct and indirect
economic impact, provide over 15,700 jobs and
contribute $58 million indirectly to local and
state tax revenue streams.

"I have not always done everything right," said Corey
Fuller, "I feel that the best way for me to give back is to
help the youth. Help them to learn from my mistakes."
Fuller, a former player in the National Football League
started the give back process in Gadsden County last
week. ..
The Corey Fuller's Life Youth Foundation was the major
sponsor of two days of activities at the Joe Ferolito
Recreation Center in Quincy. The 2008 Fun Fest and


Football Clinic, Thursday and Friday respectively, drew
nearly 1,000 kids in the two days. More than 800 children
came out to Fun Day. Healthy doses of character building
advice was sprinkled in between the fun houses, games,'
music and food. Nearly 150 attended Friday's football*
clinic.
"I appreciate the City of Quincy for giving me the
opportunity to launch my program," Fuller said.

Surprise!


Rep. Richardson feted at

Health Council luncheon


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor
Rep. Curtis Richardson had been to
retreats sponsored by the Gadsden County
Health Council in the past. Normally, the
group will assess the previous year's
accomplishments and plan for the upcoming
year. The whole thing ends in a luncheon.
Richard got a surprise last Wednesday
when health council president Sherry
VanLandingham announced that the
luncheon this year was in his honor.
Various speakers talked about the untiring
work Richardson has done on behalf of the
county. Richardson, because of term limits,
cannot run for the legislature again.
The usually calm and collected
Richardson was visibly surprised.
S'"No other person I can think of is more
deserving than this honored today. We have
reaped the benefits of his hard work for
Gadsden County," said assistant county
manager Arthur Lawson.
Lee Bradford Johnson, aide to
Congressman Allen Boyd, said one would


think that Richardson is a Gadsden County
native for the amount of time he spends in
the county.
"We ought to make him a honorary citizen
of Gadsden County," Johnson said.
Ever-gracious Richardson, who is a native
of Green Cove Springs, thanked the county
for adopting him. He started his
professional career here 25 years ago as a
school psychologist.
"I appreciate the opportunity to represent
Gadsden County in the Legislature. I saw
first hand the health disparity, infant
mortality and other health problems and I
wanted to do something to help," he said.
Richardson said it was disturbing to him
that grants were being written and funded
using the problems (health) that Gadsden /
County citizens faced and none of the
resources were reaching the county.
"That's when the health council came
about. Now any grants have to go though
the health council and we can be sure that
the people for whom the services are
intended
get them. See LUNCHEON on Page 3

Boyd supports bringing Amtrak back


Legislation would seek to restore passenger rail

service between New Orleans and Sanford


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) supported pas-
sage of the Passenger Rail
Investment and Improvement
Act (HR 6003), which would
require Amtrak to submit a plan
to Congress for restoring pas-
senger rail service between New
Orleans, Louisiana, and
Sanford, Florida. The North
Florida corridor has not been
served by Amtrak since the
close of Amtrak's Sunset
Limited service after Hurricane
Katrina.
"Since the close of Sunset
Limited, I often hear from con-
stituents about the possibility of
restoring this important service


to North Florida," said
Congressman Boyd. "This leg-
islation will get the ball rolling
on ways to restore this service
that will most benefit the people
of North Florida and help to
make train travel an affordable
option in our region."
The language in HR 6003
requires Amtrak to submit a plan
to Congress that will include a
projected timeline for restoring
service between New Orleans
and Sanford, as well as the asso-
ciated costs for reinstating this
service. In developing the plan,
Amtrak will consult with repre-
sentatives from the States of
Florida, Louisiana, Alabama,
and Mississippi, railroad carri-


ers whose tracks may be used
for such service, and rail passen-
gers.
Prior to its closing in 2005,
Sunset Limited's North Florida
stops included Crestview,
Chipley, Tallahassee, Madison,
Lake City, and Jacksonville.
"Amtrak provided a valuable
service to many Floridians,"
Boyd stated. "In this time of ris-
ing fuel costs, passenger rail
service will provide the people
of North Florida with more
transportation options and add
an important economic develop-
ment tool to the area."
HR 6003 now awaits considera-
tion by the Senate.


Gadsden County Americorps Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) workers attended a
statewide training last Thursday at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy near Quincy.
Above, the locals took time to have their picture taken with Matthew McKibbin (center) Director

Community College. The group attended workshops on emergency management and life after
Americorps. Following the workshops everyone attended a dinner where Greg Downing was the
speaker.


Local doctor to chair state association

Quincy native Cyneetha Strong named chairwoman of prestigious
Florida Academy of Family Physicians


TALLAHASSEE, FL (June 16,
2008)-One of Tallahassee's
prominent family physicians,
Cyneetha Strong, M.D., is con-
tinuing her work on behalf of
family physicians, the specialty
and Floridians as the new chair
of the board for the Florida
Academy of Family Physicians
(FAFP), an organization which
represents the state's more than
4,000 practicing family physi-
cians, residents in training and
medical students.
As past president, Dr. Strong
will continue advocating for
FAFP's members and the rights
of all Floridians for quality,
affordable healthcare.
"Serving as president last term
was a tremendous honor, and I
enjoyed speaking out on the
importance of family medicine
and providing care for those in
underserved areas of our state"
said Dr. Cyneetha Strong. "I
want to use my new role as chair
to continue bringing attention to
key issues, like the patient-cen-
tered, primary care medical
home concept, where an on-
going relationship with a physi-
cian is established to ensure


patients receive comprehensive
care and become active partici-
pants in their health decisions."
Originally from Quincy, Dr.
Strong began her medical career
at the University of Florida's
College of Medicine and, upon
graduation, finished her educa-
tion at the Tallahassee Memorial
Regional Medical Center
Family Residence Program.
Dr. Strong then made an impact
on the uriderserved populations
of Gadsden County at Quincy's
Tallahassee Memorial Family
Practice. She has served the
Tallahassee community for
more than 15 years, most recent-
ly in group practice at Patients
First. A member of many civic
associations, she is a national
speaker on healthcare issues and
is very involved in the Bethel
Missionary Baptist Church.
Today, Dr. Strong focuses on
initiatives to improve patient
care for all Floridians. She par-
ticipated in government initia-
tives such as the "Rally on
Capitol Hill" in 2006 and serves
as the Family Medicine.
Ambassador to the Florida
Legislature. She has served on

the FAFP's Board of Directors
as both vice president and a
member of the Governmental
Affairs Committee, in addition
to serving on the Chapter Affairs
Committee of the American
Academy of Family Physicians.
The Florida Academy of Family
Physicians is the Florida chapter
of the American Academy of
Family Physicians, the national
association of family doctors.
The FAFP is the only organiza-
tion in Florida that solely repre-
sents the family physician.
Its mission is to promote excel-
lence in health care for Florida
citizens, to advance and repre-
sent the specialty of family med-
icine, and to serve the unique
needs of its members.
The FAFP has more than 4,000
members including practicing
physicians, resident physicians
and medical students with an
interest in family medicine, who
are actively involved in continu-
ing education, advocacy and
support for this specialty.

Contemplation


Wanted: Your best tailgate

recipes


I got my season football tickets the
other day. Seems like just a few days ago
that I was packing and unpacking my
Jeep getting ready for my tailgating. I
actually enjoy the tailgating more than
the game and I have been known to sit
out games while tending the fire on my
little grill.
I know a lot of you out there in
readership land do a fair amount of
tailgating yourselves. Recipes, like
everything else change, and I am on the
hunt for quick, easy and tasty tailgate
food. In past years, I have purchased the
latest tailgating cookbook, including one
written by John Madden. But those
things are for people who roll with RVs
and enough equipment to feed a small
army.
No, what I'm looking for are foods I can
prepare on Friday night, keep in the


refrigerator overnight and pop into a
cooler on Saturday. I'm looking for
something other than 25 different ways
(and I've tried them all) to flavor chicken
wings.
There are lots .of vendors around the
stadium selling all sorts of food, but
there is something special to me when
my family and friends are sitting under a
canopy, eating and talking about a little
bit of everything. I almost always see
someone I was in school with that I
haven't seen in a long time. Some people
I only see during football season.
A lot of Quincy people stop by to say
hello. Some have even tried to hand me
articles (usually people or church news)
for the paper. That's not a good thing.
I know it's June but "the season" isn't
that far away. So, send in those recipes
because I need them.

Who's minding the store?


I was shocked and disappointed by the
article in The Gadsden County Times
about the "resignation" of the Growth
County Management Directory, Bill
McCord.
Bill McCord did more to bring Gadsden
County into the 20th century, ensure the
code was enforced, and treat everyone
equally, than any previous Gadsden
County Growth Management Director
I'm aware of.
As a Gadsden County resident, I can sup-
port my observations with first hand
experience. In 2005 I moved into a newly
built subdivision, Deer Ridge Estates,
where the developer was allowed to run
amuck.
The road system was failing. The
Stormwater Management System, and
drainage infrastructure was failing. Of the
17 homes currently occupied at the time,
5 had failed septic systems and I was
required to be pumped out bi-monthly.
The shining light in the predicament Deer
Ridge Estates residents found themselves
was the newly hired Growth Management
Director, Bill McCord.
Bill McCord, with his diligence, knowl-
edge of the code, and perhaps more


importantly, willingness to enforce the
rules, spearheaded the County's belated
efforts to rectify the situation.
I strongly suspect that Bill McCord hit
the nail on the head, regarding his "resig-
nation", with his comment, "All I was try-
ing to do was enforce the rules and I
guess some people didn't like having to
play by the rules".
Perhaps I missed something, but I thought
one of the primary roles of Government
was to enforce the rules to insure the safe-
ty and well being of all it's citizens. I
think Gadsden County could take heed of
the example Bill McCord set with his
work ethic and dedication to the citizens
of Gadsden County.
Just as disconcerting was how this event
happened apparently without the knowl-
edge of the County Commission.
All residents of Gadsden County should
be concerned that such a key official
could be dismissed without any review by
our County Commissioners. This thought
begs the question, just who is minding the
store?

When I was growing up you did
whatever an adult instructed you to
do. Without question! This extended
way beyond your mom and dad. If
Mr. Clericuzio told us to stand on the
corner and wait for our parents to
pick us up after the picture show, we
stood right on the comer and waited.
We didn't wander across the street
and play in the park. We didn't
amble down to John Motheral's
Drugstore and peer in the window.
We didn't step out onto Cedar

overloaded produce truck. We did
exactly what he said.
I've heard people describe the 1950's
as the innocent years; the golden
decade; the rock and roll era; happy
days..... I don't know about that. I
remember mostly we played ball,
went to school, worried about the
Russians and obeyed any adult that
happened to be standing around.
If this "do as you are told" wasn't
bred in us, it was certainly

A tale of lost promise


Dear Gadsden County Times:

Twenty two years ago this week, Len Bias died
of a cocaine overdose. His death stunned the
sports world and left an indelible mark on our
justice system. In the months following his
death, Congress passed harsh new mandatory
minimum drug laws that set a 100:1 disparity
between the amount of crack cocaine and pow-
der cocaine that trigger the. same five-year
mandatory prison sentence. The result: One-
size-fits-all sentencing, regardless of an indi-
vidual's role in the case.
We punish low-level drug users and dealers the
same or worse than the drug kingpins mandato-
ry sentences were intended to catch.
Crack-cocaine offenders serve sentences up to
eight times longer than; those sentenced for
powder cocaine.
African-Americans account for 80 percent of
those serving time for crack offenses even
though they make up less than 1/3 of crack
cocaine users.
By continuing to lock away first time and non-
violent crack cocaine
offenders for extraordinarily long sentences
instead of treating the
problem, we are repeating the mistake, not the
lesson, of Len Bias' story.
We are repeating a tale of lost promise.
In recent months, we have seen a new effort
among the courts, the public and even among
some of our politicians to rewrite the ending for
these prisoners. What is Congress waiting for?


Sincerely,


Tonda nelson

say, "Ya'll mind Mr. Brooks".
We understood it wasn't a casual
remark or an off handed statement
because they couldn't think of
anything more intelligent to say. It
was a command from on high! And
one which, if we disobeyed in any
form, shape or fashion there would
be no mediation, no counselors
called in, no child psychologist
consultations, no books on child
rearing referred to and no excuses
accepted. They would whip our little
hind ends till their arms gave out!
Don't seem nothing too "happy
days" about that to me.
We learned to live with it. And it
wasn't as tough as you might
imagine. It was so universal we
really didn't think nothing of it. If we
were cooling off with the water hose

Arvie yelled, "You boys are wasting
water", didn't nobody yell back,
"Well, it's hot out here." Or "We're

might be scarred for life if our fun is

Preparedness

is everyone's

responsibility

by Marlon Hunter, M.A.
Gadsden County Health
Department Administrator

Step 1: Get a Kit

Individual Preparedness

*Get an Emergency Supply Kit,
which includes items like non-
perishable food, water, a bat-
tery-powered or hand-crank
radio, extra flashlights and bat-
teries. You may want to prepare
a portable kit and keep it in your
car. This kit should include:
*Copies of prescription medica-
tions and medical supplies;
*Bedding and clothing, includ-
ing sleeping bags and pillows;
*Bottled water, a battery-operat-
ed radio and extra batteries, a
first aid kit, a flashlight;
*Copies of important docu-
ments: driver's license, Social
Security card, proof of resi-
dence, insurance policies, wills,
deeds, birth and marriage cer-
tificates, tax records, etc.

Step 2: Make a Plan

Prepare your family

*Make a Family Emergency
Plan. Your family may not be
together when disaster strikes,
so it is important to know how
you will contact one another,
how you will get back together
and what you will do. in .case :Of
an emergency.
*Plan places where your family
will meet, both within and out-
side of your immediate neigh-
borhood.
'It may be easier to make a
long-distance phone call than to
call across town, so an out-of-
town contact may be in a better
position to communication
among separated family mem-
bers.
SYou may also want to inquire
about enfergency plans at places
where your family spends time:
work, daycare and school. If no
plans exit, consider volunteer-
ing to" help create one.
*Plan to evacuate
*Identify ahead of time where .
your family will meet, both
within and outside of your
immediate neighborhood.
*Identify several places you ,
could go in an emergency, a
friend's home in another town, a
motel or public shelter.
*If you do not have a car, plan
alternate means of evacuating.
*If you have a car, keep a half
tank of gas in it at all times in
case you need to evacuate. '
*Take your Emergency Supply
Kit.
*Take your pets with you, but
understand that only service ani-
mals may be permitted in public
shelters. Plan how you will care
for your pets in an emergency.
*Take a Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT) class ;
from your local Citizens Corps :
chapter. Keep your training cur-
rent.

Step 3: Be Informed

Familiarize yourself with the
terms that are used to identify a
hurricane

*A hurricane watch means a
hurricane is possible in your
area. Be prepared to evacuate.
Monitor local radio and televi-
sion news outlets or listen to'
NOAA Weather Radio for the
latest developments.
*A hurricane warning is when a
hurricane is expected in your


area. If local authorities advise
you to evacuate, leave immedi- ,.,
ately.

My mother had leukemia and
she was given many units of
blood. When people asked us
how they could help with my
mother, we told them they
could give blood. One of my
co-workers then called and set
up the first blood drive at
Focus Credit Union in
Chattahoochee. Now we have
drives also at our Quincy loca-
tion. This is a wonderful way
for people to help.

Quincy, Greensboro make preparations for July 4 festivities


Quincy

By ALICE DU POINT
'rimes Editor
Get to know the candidates who are running for office in 2008, learn about the many non-
profit organizations in the county that can help you access goods and services, and enjoy your-
self with some good old-fashioned family fun. All of this and more will be a part of the City
of Quincy's Fourth of July celebration. Starting at noon and lasting until 4 p.m., Corry Field
alive with music, fun and games for people of all ages.
Interim City Manager Jack McLean said the city is also urging families to bring their grills,
tents, and set ups to Corry Field as well. Instead of limiting the celebrations to just immediate
families, the aim is to encourage citizens get together with their Quincy family, which includes
all of the citizens of the city.
"This will be a family affair. We're planning mother-daughter sack races, father-son spoon-
egg carry, ice cream eating contest, and other fun activities. The city will also give away
lemonade and ice cream," McLean said.
In keeping with the spirit of July Fourth all political candidates are invited.. They will be
given the opportunity to give a short speech between 12 noon and 1:30 p.m. McLean said that
candidates are asked to set up tents, talk with citizens and distribute their literature until 4 p.m.
Got talent? Want to show what you got? Bring your best game whether it's singing, danc-
ing, telling jokes, juggling or any other talent'you think people will enjoy is all welcome.
"This is all in fun, really. This isn't the first step to American Idol or anything like that, it's
just small town America having a good time," McLean said.
McLean himself will delivery a speech on the State of the City. He will also answer ques-
tions from citizens on everything from telecommunications to utilities.
"There has been some transition recently in the city and this event will give me an oppor-
tunity, as interim city manager, to make sure that citizens are at ease with reassure them that
this city is moving forward.
Non-profit organization will also be given the opportunity to share the services they offer.
McLean said the city often receives request from organizations that want a venue to inform
citizens. This, he said, is the time and place for these organizations to set up and disseminate
information.
"We're welcoming any non-profit organization. All we ask, and it's the same with political
candidates, is that they provide their own tent as well as tables and chairs," McLean said.
While letters are being to as many non-profit organizations as possible McLean urges peo-
ple to pass the word.
For more information on the city's July 4th Celebration, call Quincy's City Clerk, Sylvia
Hicks at 627-7681, ext. 224.

Gadsden to participate in hurricane preparedness pilot program


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


Gadsden County will partici-
pate in a unique pilot program
through the Florida Department
of Health that is intended to pre-
pare neighborhoods in, the event
of disaster. Four Gadsden
County neighborhoods have
been selected to participate, in
the program, said Major Shawn
Wood of the Gadsden County
Sheriff Office Department of
Emergency Management.
"On any day a serious disas-
ter could strike. It could be a
hurricane, terrorist attack, a haz-
ardous materials transportation
accident or a airplane falling out
of he sky," Wood said.
The four neighborhoods that
have been selected are: Gretna
and Sawdust in the western part
of the county and Lake
Tallavana and Reston in the
eastern part of the county. Wood
said the neighborhoods were
chosen because they have
diverse needs and will be able to
use the models developed to
organize other neighborhoods in
the future.
Rick Miller, who is the pre-
paredness and response coordi-
nator for Gadsden, Franklin, and
Liberty counties through the
health department, said there are
three basic steps people must
take to get ready for a disaster:


be aware and educate yourself,
prepare your household; and
prepare your neighborhood.
It is important to organize
neighborhoods because city and
county emergency services such
as police, fire, ambulance, and
public works, will be very busy
after the disaster strikes. It could
be days before they can give
each households or neighbor-
hoods the help they need.
"People will have to rely on
themselves and their neighbors
for first aid, firefighting, hazard
control, search and rescue and
general support. Neighborhoods
prepared to do these things may
make the difference between
life and death to many individu-
als and families," stated a press
release from the Florida
Department of Health on the
need for the program.
Citizens in the pinpointed
areas will be contacted soon and
asked to volunteer to become
neighborhood leaders.
"It is in this spirit of unity
and neighbor-helping-neighbor
that we encourage people to get
involved in preparedness activi-
ties, within their own neighbor-
hood. In order to get this pro-
gram going we will be creating
or updating a preparedness pro-
gram for these four neighbor-
hoods with a major input com-
ing from the people who live in
these area so that we can create
the Neighborhood Emergency


and Preparedness Program
(NEPP)" Wood said.
Several years ago residents
of lake Tallavana had a similar
program as NEPP that they
came up with on their own.
Other communities will need to
develop a plan that will be used
in their unique circumstances.
State officials have long rec-
ognized that neighbor and pro-
fessionals have always come to
the aid of victims. But because
most of the people were not
acquainted before the disaster,
officials agreed that efforts and
precious time was wasted as
people attempted to get to know
each other and figure out what
to do next.
As a result many Florida
neighborhoods have now
formed emergency response
groups or teams and have made
disaster preparedness a priority.
The Gadsden County NEFF
Program is intended to help
neighborhoods come together,
develop a plan of action and
practice and implement that plan
through tabletop exercises.
The State Department of
Health will be able to help with
providing some of the items
neighborhoods will need to be
ready, according to Danielle
Jennings.
NEFF is intended to identify,
train and mobilize small neigh-
borhood teams to help foster
"sheltering in place" (staying in

'your home 'or with relatives or
friends) at the community level
in a disaster situation. The
neighborhood teams would be
self-sufficient and be ready to


handle health-related emergency
incidents.
"We only have a short time to
implement this plan, a matter of
five to six weeks, so it's impor-


tant that citizens get on board
with board with NEFF," Wood

Seminole Ramlins

By Golly, I got to flex my Fly Rod arm this past Saterday morning rite at daylite. A friend of mine -
let me fish his pond for Bream. Jackson my grandson was with me. He was using a cain pole with a
cork on it, at times we'd have 2 on at the time. The Bream ranged from 3 fingers to 6 fingers, 3 of mine
had to be handled with a towel on the dock. Not one time did my bug hit the water that one didn't hit
it. I went fast enough to stick some oPfthem but I'm gitten better. We had 40 when we got to the house.
Many Bream, Catfish and Crappie was taken this week. Even with the hi winds and thunder storms
most every day we have had about 3 1/4 inches of rain from 4 clouds. That's not bad when some areas
are bone dry.
2 boats reported 6 Stripers taken mostly on Live Bait. They should be easy to catch now that the
water is heating up.
The summer time patem is on now in the lake, the top is hot and down about 10 feet. Its cooler than
70?, them Bass like to be comfortable. So do we, so fish that
depth with Plastic and see what happens.
The Hydrilla Gnats fished out of Wingate's on Sunday with
Sean Neel taken first with five fish weighing 9.80 lbs. Paul Tyre
took second with 5.44 lbs. and Mike Prindle third with 4.40 lb,.
Big fish was caught by Mike Prindle and weighed 4.40 lbs.
Now that shooting Mullet is legal in Fla. With a bow and
arrow, it should be legal in GA to shoot Talapia the same way. We
need the DNR to tell us if that fish is a rough fish, game fish and
if its legal to gig them.
I hope every one had a great Father's Day as I did. One father

FWC proposes limits on freshwater turtle harvests


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) proposed a draft rule on
Wednesday that will set new
limits for the harvest of freshwa-
ter turtles. The proposed change
will be up for final action by the
Commission at the Sept. 17-19
meeting in Jacksonville.
The new rule would limit the
harvest of native Florida fresh-
water turtles to five per day to


protect freshwater turtle popula-
tions while the FWC .develops a
long-term comprehensive strate-
gy for sustainable use of
amphibian and reptile popula-
tions. Current possession limits
for turtle species will not
change.
"The FWC staff is aware of
increasing demand for freshwa-
ter turtles nationally and interna-
tionally," said Bill Turner, an


FWC amphibian and reptile spe-
cialist. "We are evaluating our
management of these animals to
ensure these populations aren't
over-exploited because of these
demands."
Alabama, Michigan,
Maryland, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee and
Texas recently restricted their
turtle harvests, which may cause
turtle harvesters from those


states to focus on Florida,
Turner said.
In March, the FWC received
two petitions for emergency
rule-making to restrict freshwa-
ter turtle harvests, but these
emergency measures last only
90 (lays. Instead, the FWC opted
for this draft rule as an interim
measure.

Attention Boat Owners
As your Gadsden County Tax Collector, I would like to make sure that
everyone is aware of the increase in boat registration fees, effective July
1. Senate Bill 1286, which was recently passed by the Florida Legislature,
will increase boat registration fees by approximately 51% beginning July
,1.
The fee increase will raise about $10.2 million annually to pay for FWC
law enforcement staff (66 positions that would have been lost due to
budget cuts), fuel for law enforcement operations, derelict boat removal
and manatee rehabilitation. Below is a chart showing the old registration
fees (prior to 07/01/08) and the new fees (effective 07/01/08):
Length of Vessel Old Fee New Fee
Less than 12 feet and motorized canoes $ 8.75 $10.75
12 feet or more and less than 16 feet $15.75 $21.50
16 feet or more and less than 26 feet $23.75 $34.00
26 feet or more and less than 40 feet $55.75 $83.50
,40 feet or more and less than 65 feet $87.75 $133.00
65 feet or more and less than 110 feet $103.75 $158.00
110 feet or more $127.75 $195.00
Please be aware that you are allowed to renew both your boat and vehicle
registrations up to 90 days prior to the beginning of your birth month,
therefore, if your registration expires in July. August, or September you
can save money by renewing your boat registration prior fo July 1st. If
you have any questions, please contact our office at 627-7255 or online at

From Hunkerin' on Page 4
broken our necks getting that
water hose turned off! If you
think Mr. Arvie would have
'just whipped Ricky and left
the rest of us alone then you
don't know didley about the
1950's!
All of this "mind every
adult" thing went double at
school. It was like every
teacher had special
knowledge and powers far
above that of normal people.
We were going there to learn
and, as our parents,
admonished at every
opportunity, we'd better be
paying attention to
everything Miss Carolyn or
Miss Booth or whoever it
happened to be said!
I could say "yes ma'am" and
"thank you, ma'am" and "oh


yes, I understand" so fast it
would make you head swim.
It never crossed my mind to
question a teacher. I spent
these formative years
obeying and agreeing and
going along with whatever I
was told. I was a product of
the 50's and just proud to be
shuffling along......
Until about three weeks into
my six grade year! We came
in from recess and I had
spent most of it chasing
Vicki 'Fields and Bobby
Brewer, Pam Collins and
Jimmy Carter. We had raced,
ripped and roared for twenty
minutes! The August heat
had not yet given away to the
coming of fall. Our hair was
plastered to our foreheads.
Sweat streaked down our


faces. We had no idea in
those "innocent years" that
you could air condition a
school building.
"Miss Mary Ann," Pam Was
fanning herself with a
Weekly Reader, "I'm about
to die. May I get some
water?"
"You know class, the fastest
way to cool off when you get
really, really hot is to drink a
hot drink such as coffee or
hot chocolate.",
"That can't be true!"
The whole class went dead
silent and everyone turned to
stare at me. I was as
surprised as anyone. I
couldn't believe I said that.
And I certainly didn't mean
to shout!
"Kesley, you didn't raise


your hand." Miss Mary Ann
was as shocked as I was.
"Uh...well... I'm sorry....I'
mean... .uh... .there is no way
a hot drink can cool you
down as fast as an ice cold
one."
"Oh yes, it has been
clinically proven." She
launched into a long
explanation about the hot
drink causing your system to
"cool itself' by creating
more sweat which would
evaporate at a rate that would
cool your-
"Miss Mary Ann, that just
ain't possible!" I was doing a
little thinking of my own
here. I didn't need a report or
a scientific finding on this
one. I had been hot before. I
knew the answer. "When I'm


burning on fire hot, nothing
tastes better or cools me off
faster than a cold drink. And
the colder the better! Them
Pepsi's down at Woodrow
Kennon,'s Store will work.
But the best cooling off thing
is them drinks Mr. Reynolds
keeps down at the ice house.
He drops'em in the washtub
with the watermelons he's
icing down. I'm telling you,
they are freezing cold! And
they will cool you off in a
heartbeat! And they will do it
seven ways from Sunday
faster than any hot drink!" I
wanted to add that only an
idiot could possibly think a
hot drink could do you more
good than a cold drink when
the temperature soared up
near a hundred! But I figured


I was already in enough
trouble.
She didn't whip me. But she
was going to collect her
scientific data and "prove it
to me".
"It won't do no good." I
heard the whole class gasp.
"I don't need a book or a
study to tell me what will
cool you off the best when
you are hot!"
All the kids were marveling
at me after school. They
thought I was brave....and
crazy. And they were pleased
that I hadn't been punished
for standing up to Miss Mary
Ann.
Course, I hadn't gotten home
yet......
Respectfully,
Kes

County may go to mandatory


garbage pickup and recycling


Gadsden County may soon
be implementing mandatory
garbage pickup and recycling.
In the Tuesday, June 10 regular-
ly scheduled commission work-
shop, the Gadsden County
Board of County
Commissioners Citizens
Advisory Committee on Solid
Waste proposed the county
establish a county-wide garbage
collection and recycling pro-
gram.
The recommendation was
one of two strongly backed by
the 12-member committee
established in January by the
commission and tasked with the'
job of addressing solid waste
issues at a cost that would be
feasible to Gadsden County and
its residents. A county-wide
garbage collection program,
which is the primary recommen-
dation of five that were present-
ed overall, would
bill all residents for garbage
and recycling pickup. The other
recommendations addressed the
collection of fees.
The service is estimated to
cost at least $17 a month.
"This will put us in line with
the Legislation that was recently
passed," said Jack Malloy, chair-
man of the Citizens Advisory
Committee on SolidWaste.
House Bill 7135 established
a state-wide long-term goal to
reduce, by 2010, the amount of
recyclable solid waste disposed
of in waste management facili-
ties, landfills, and incineration
facilities by at least 75 percent.
"We will eventually have to
move in that direction anyway,"

said Malloy. "Ithink the com-
mittee sees that. Now is the
time to start down that new road.
We can no longer have the
.mindset that everything is
garbage. That's the way the
committee feels. This (recom-
mendation) will by far be an
economic boom to the county,
because it will reduce the cost to
the county."
The Board of County
Commissioners previously visit-
ed this matter in the 1980s and
voted to impose a mandatory
garbage collection fee on every
property owner.
"Some residents will be
resistant to the idea, but that's
why we need to educate them on
why they need to pay this," said
Malloy.
The advisory committee rec-
ommended the county contract
with a vendor to supply all the
collection and recycling recepta-
cles and handle the program's
billing. The savigsfor' the ....
county could be approximately
$38,000 the first year and
$138,000 in subsequent years.,
,This proposed option would
require the county close its six
remote rural waste sites.
Last year, the board voted to
discontinue curbside recycling,
a program it had participated in
for about 11 years, citing budget
limitations that prevented it
from continuing.
The commission has not yet
decided when it will make its
final decision on the commit-
tee's recommendations.
"When we made the decision
to keep the rural sites open, we


.knew that it would not be a cure-
all to our solid waste issues,"
said Edward J. Dixon, chairman
of the Gadsden County Board of
County Commissioners.
"That is why we asked for
feedback from our citizens
regarding how we should move
forward.
They have now presented
this board with some viable
options -options they believe
would be best for not only them-
selves, but their neighbors."
Part of the first recommenda-
tion also calls for the commis-
sion to establish two full-time
positions to include a truck that
would collect litter along the
county's roads and items not
picked up with the regular solid
waste collection.
In order for the program to
be effective, the committee sug-
gested the county launch an edu-
cational campaign to address the
benefits of a solid waste pro-
giaii arid' the potential dangers
of not having one in place.
The second recommendation
called for the county to keep the
rural waste sites and add an
additional three.
One could be west of
Greensboro, southwest of
Quincy, and near Havana. They
also agreed that a two-man crew
would still' be needed.
The first year would cost the
county an estimated $582,000 to
operate.
A minor savings would .be
realized in subsequent yearsas
the cost to the county would be
about $482,000.

FSU researchers: Genetic risk for Alzheimer's does not discriminate


ALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A com-
monly recognized gene that
places one at risk for
Alzheimer's disease does not
discriminate between blacks and
whites, according to new
research led by Florida State
University.
FSU Psychology Professor
Natalie Sachs-Ericsson and
graduate student Kathryn
Sawyer have found that the gene
APOE epsilon 4 allele is a risk
factor for African-Americans as
well as whites. Until now, it has
been a mainstream belief that
the gene is only a risk factor for
whites.
"The results of our study have
clear implications for research
and treatment of Alzheimer's
disease," Sachs-Ericsson said.


"The APOE test might be used
as one tool in identifying people
who are at risk for Alzheimer's.
We now know that African-
Americans and Caucasians alike
need to be considered for such
risk assessments."
Sachs-Ericsson and Sawyer col-
laborated with Kristopher
Preacher of the University of
Kansas and Dan Blazer of Duke
University Medical Center on
the study. The study has been
published online in the journal
Gerontology.
The researchers' findings under-
score the importance of includ-
ing both blacks and whites in
future studies that explore why
the APOE genotype is a risk fac-
tor for Alzheimer's disease, a
progressive and fatal brain dis-


ease that causes problems with
memory, thinking and behavior.
By understanding the mecha-
nism by which the genotype
confers risk, scientists could
potentially develop medicines
that slow the progress of
Alzheimer's or even prevent it,
according to Sachs-Ericsson.
Sachs-Ericsson's team theorized
that small sample sizes coupled
with possible racial bias in
measuring cognitive functioning
may explain why some studies
have failed to detect the effect of
the APOE epsilon 4 allele on
cognitive decline among blacks.
In addition, false-positive rates
for dementia on standardized
screening tests are higher for
blacks than for whites when
compared to neurologists' rat-


ings of cognitive status, Sachs-
Ericsson said, and those false
positives may have obscured the
influence of the gene on demen-
tia. Alzhcimer's disease is the.
most common form of demen-
tia.
Alleles are different variants of a
gene. Everyone has the APOE
gene, but what differs across
people is which variant they
happen to have: epsilon 2,
epsilon 3 or epsilon 4. In addi-
tion, each person has two alleles
of the gene -- one from the
mother and one from the father.
Having at least one APOE
epsilon 4 allele is a risk factor
for Alzheimer's, but not every-
one who has it will develop the
disease, Sachs-Ericsson said.
And some people who develop


Alzheimer's do not have the
allele.
"While having the APOE
epsilon 4 allele increases the
risk of developing Alzheimer's
disease, APOE genotype alone
is not enough to predict the dis-
ease," she said. "We don't
understand why the allele pre-
dicts Alzheimer's in some but
not others. There may be other
biological or genetic causes or
even environmental. factors,
such as diet, that determine
whether the allele will lead to
Alzheimer's. We need a better
understanding of what these fac-
tors are and whether they affect
African Americans and
Caucasians equally."
The researchers used data from
the Duke Established


Populations for Epidemiologic
Studies of the Elderly. To deter-
mine genotype, DNA samples
were collected through blood of
cheek swabs from 2,076 people
65 or older. In the study, partici-
pants were divided into two
groups: those who had at least
one APOE epsilon 4 allele and
those who had no epsilon 4
allele. Cognitive .errors on a
standardized test were measured
in four in-person interviews
over a 10-year period ending in
1997. Those with the gene -,
both blacks and whites -- made
increasingly more cognitive
errors over time on a question-
naire that assessed knowledge of
items such as the day, date and
current president than those
without the gene.


Rodents in the landscape


By Theresa Friday

Rodents in the landscape are more common than most people think.
They can lurk in trees and shrubs, under houses, and in outbuildings.
Rats especially are notorious for spreading fleas and diseases, and
since they live and share the same habitat with squirrels, it may be
this contact that considerably increases the incidence of squirrels
becoming infested with fleas.
Because rats are most active at night and are rarely seen during the
day, it is necessary to recognize signs of their activity.
Most people first notice rodents by finding droppings in and around
buildings. Old droppings are gray, dusty, and will crumble. Fresh
droppings are black, shiny, and puttylike.
Another sign are gnawed objects. Rodents gnaw every day in order
to keep their teeth short and sharp and to gain entrance or to obtain
food. Teeth marks on food, building materials, wire, and edges of
beams are indications of gnawing.
Rats also habitually use the same paths or runways between harbor-
age and food or water. Outside runways are paths 2-3 inches wide
and appear as smooth, hard packed trails under vegetation.
What can you do to get rid of a rat or mouse? Well, when you first
see signs, act immediately to eradicate the first immigrants. Don't
give them time to reproduce.
Good housekeeping or sanitation is a basic factor in rodent control.
Eliminating food, water, and harborage for rats and mice can reduce
rodent populations rapidly. To implement sanitation practices:
Clean up garbage and rubbish.
Properly store garbage, pet food and bird seed.
Remove harborages such as piles of rubbish, junk and protect-
ed enclosures.
Pick fruits and vegetables when ripe so rodents will not feed on
them.

Birds of prey, hawks and owls feed on large numbers of rodents and
are exceptional rat killers. Snakes such as rat snakes, king snakes,
pine snakes and black racers eat numerous rodents and are impor-
tant in controlling rodent populations. Do not kill non-poisonous
snakes.
Trapping is an underrated method of controlling rodents. Traps can
be used to eliminate rats where poison baits would be dangerous.
It is important to place traps where the rats are. Rats and mice have
different behavior around new objects. Rats are cautious, and it may
be a week before they approach a trap. Mice are curious and will
normally approach traps the first night. If you don't catch a mouse
in the first few nights, the trap is in the wrong location. To help rats
overcome trap shyness, place traps unsetV in place, for several days.
This allows rats to overcome shyness and results in better catches.
Traps are effective usually when dealing with small numbers of rats
or mice. When rats are plentiful or where unsanitary conditions exist
with harborage, poisoned baits are an effective tool to use with trap-
ping.
Poison baits are readily available. Whenever a rodenticide is used,
safety must be the first consideration. Poison baits must be placed
where they are inaccessible to children, pets, livestock and wildlife
or in special bait stations. Bait stations should always be placed near
where rats live and breed or along travel routes.
When you control your rats, encourage your neighbor to cQntrol
their rats at the same time. The greater the area that is controlled, the
more effective the results will be and the longer it will take new rats
to migrate back to your property.

Gadsden County Women of the Year:






Studied Savvy, Spiritual


By ALICE DU PONT
Times Editor


The Gadsden County Chapter of
the National Hook-Up of Black
Women has selected five local to


honor Carrie Barkley
this year. The honorees and the
categories they represent are:
Carrie Barkley, family values;
Min. Gwendolyn Carroll,
religion; Inez Holt, community
service; Betty James, education;
and Patricia Tennell, business.
The public is invited to a
luncheon honoring these women
Saturday, June 28, at noon at
Carter-Parramore Academy.
Tickets are $10 and can be
purchased at the door.
"We're calling this group of
superb women our Class of 2008.
Each of them has distinguished
herself in the areas for which they
have been selected," said Moneek
Walker, chairman.
Minister Gwendolyn Carroll
was selected in the category of
religiorn.-Carroll .came ..into the..
ministry in the African Methodist
Episcopal Church in 2006. She is
a life-long member of Old Bethel
A.M.E. Church on High Bridge
Road where she still attends
church and often delivers the
sermon.


Gwendolyn Carro


Currently she is taking classes
and has her sights set on
becoming ordained in 2009.
Carroll takes religion seriously
but more than that, she' said, she
takes it "personally." One of the
reasons Carroll was selected is
because of her focus on helping
young females in the African
American community. In the past
few years Carroll has led a group
in all-girl sleepovers at Old
Bethel AME Church the Friday
before Easter.
The message she has for young
women is a simple and powerful
one. She says there .are two things
she often tells young women
because they have helped her
through difficult periods in her
life. "You can do all things
through Christ who strengthens
you" and "If there is a will there
is a way."
She encourages young women
to never give up and to turn
adverse situation into positive
ones. The most influential person


in her life is her grandmother,
Paralee Bryant, who shared with
her pearls of wisdom even before
she could comprehend their
meaning. She said as an adult
many of the things her
grandmother
shared with her
began to make
sense.
Carroll is one
of seven
children. Six of
her siblings are
ministers and the
sister who is not
a minister, is
married to one,
she said.
a Carroll is
employed by
SFlorida A & M
University where
Sshe is.
S-. n credentialing
manager/asst,
manager. She is the mother
of two children Keyonna
Richardson, an adult, and 14-
year-old Jabari. She has two
grandchildren.
When Inez Holt stopped
working fulltime after 34
years as a math teacher,
she started volunteering
fulltime and hasn't
stopped. That's because the
two groups which have
become her passion, youth
and senior citizens, seem
to need the most help.
Holt served as charter
president of the Gadsden
County Alumnae Chapter
of Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority, an organization
made up of college
educated African
.American women that was
founded in Washington,
D.C. at Howard University.
During Dessert Storm when many
people keyed on the soldiers, Holt
and her sorority sisters started
helping the families.that were left
behind. They were there for
moral support for
women whose
husbands who
had been gone
from home for an
extended length
of time of the
first time.
She also
spearheaded the
Delta Academy a
program aimed at
helping young
girls between the
ages of 11 and 14
years make good
decisions and
good choices,
through
oll mentoring and- being
positive role models.
Many people may think that
Holt serves on the Board of
Directors of the Gadsden County
Senior Citizens. While she


annually volunteers of hours at
the center, she has never been a
member of the board. She,
however, was a member of the
advisory committee the year they
raised $34,000 for the center.
For the past 30 years she has


been secretary of the Gadsden
County Daycare .Board of
Directors. Her work with children
did not go unnoticed and in 2004
KIDS, Inc. recognized her as a-
"Champion of Children." And
when Cross Academy opened as
an alternative school, Holt was
there as the principal. She is still
active in mentoring and tutoring
students at the' school. She now
serves as Crossroad Academy's
chairman of the board.
While Holt volunteers a lot of
her own time, she has been
known to draft her husband of 52
years, Charleston Holt, into
helping. She called on him when
she began working with Habitat
For Humanity, an organization
that builds homes for first time
homebuyers. She and her
husband are still active with
Habitat, he swings a hammer and
she is chairman of the family
selection committee.
The Holts have two children,
three grandchildren and two great
grandchildren.
Betty James selected in the


education category. James has
taught in the Gadsden County
School District for the past 31
years and is currently a reading
coach at. Gretna Elementary
School. She commanded much
attention with the publication of
her children's book "Against All
Odds: Artist Dean Mitchell's
Story". The book was placed on
the Just Read Florida and the
Governor's Suggested Readings
for the Month of February 2008.
She was also the featured author
at a Writing Seminar In
Jacksonville. She is often in
demand as a speaker to children
and adults on the importance of
reading and writing.
She has spent, most of her career
as a first-grade teacher and has
been the recipient of many
accolades and awards. She has
also received several
certifications and endorsements
in reading and was voted the
school's Teacher-of-the Year on
two separate occasions during her
tenure.
James spent four years as


coordinator of the Even Start
Family Literacy Program. Under
her leadership, the Even Start
Program was selected as Top Ten
Exemplary Program by the
Florida Department of Education.
She is a member of various


organizations including the
Gadsden County Alumnae
Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority, Inc., American Legion
.Post #217, Arts In Gadsden
Board of Directors, and Palace
AME Church.
She is married to
Reginald James,
superintend of
the Gadsden
County School
District. They
have two
daughters and
four
grandchildren.
If you ask
almost anyone in
the community if
they know Carrie
Barkley,' they'll
smile. That's
because this
year's, recipient -
for Family
Values has touched so many
lives that she is a member of
many, many families.
An only child, and the mother
of one daughter, Joi,
Barkley and her husband
of 47 years Jessie, her
family has extended and
extended. She is proud of
her family that includes
sisters-in-law, brother-in-
law, nieces, nephews and
cousins. She is often
surrounded by the
multitude of Godchildren.
Then she has her church
.family at Beulah Hill
Church in Gretna. Her
next family is her school
family where she spent 39
years in the classroom
helping to shape the minds
of many of the county's
young people, some with
special needs.
A few weeks ago her heart
swelled with pride when she
watched several of "her children"
received diplomas during the East
Gadsden High
School
graduation. All of
her students were
her children and
she still takes a
personal interest
in their futures
just as she did
with her own,
child.
Her religion
plays a major
role in her life
and not a day
goes by that she
doesn't, take a
moment or two
to meditate. It's
important to be
able to be good to yourself
before you can be good to others
is Carrie Barkley's motto about.
life.
The recipient for business
recognition is Patricia Tennell. A


woman of many talents and
whose professional career has run
the. gamut from degree in
professional nursing to earning a
Ph.D. in healthcare.
When Tennell hung up her
career in the healthcare industry,


she and her husband Clarence Sr.
moved back to Quincy from
Wappingers Falls, NY. Once
home, she set out to start on the'
road she had often longed to go
down. She took the opportunity


Betty James
to
become an entrepreneur by
opening Kourtney's Boutique. At
the shop in downtown Quincy,
you will find such brand named
shoes at Jrenee, Ananda, Bellini,
Pella, Moda and Easy Street.
As a health professional first,
Tennell said she is ever mindful
of the large diabetic population
here and the need for comfortable
shoes. Well fitting shoes in the
correct width and size are
extremely important .
At 'Kourtney's you will find
sizes, 5 to 13, in narrow, medium
and wide widths. Tennell prides
her self on finding fashionable
and chic shoes for women with
large feet.
Women can also find an array of
fashionable and tasteful'
accessories. throughout the shop
from jewelry to handbag- and
designer pdrfumes. Tennell's
customers step out dressed and
matching from head to toe and
proud smiles to match. She is
particularly happy with the


Patricia Tennell election
of' tasteful outfits worn by
"Mother of the Church" but,
definitely no long the black and
white' matronly looking outfits.
The women who come into her
shop walk out sporting reds,
pinks, green, lilacs, as well as
eggplant, gold and silver. Much
of Tennell's attire is imported
directly from Ghana and is
specifically eye catching for
Black History Month and other
special occasions.
She views her business as a:
health related venue because'
beauty comes from within and
when a woman, they feel good and
this increases their ,self, esteem
which makes them confident, no
matter what her age.
Patricia is president and owner of
Kourtney's, Inc. her husband is the
director and their daughter Sonya
is vice president.
The Tennells also have a son
who still resides in New York, as
does Sonya.
Her motto is "It the shoe fits,
buy one in every color."

L< BACK... TO THE


verse of the week:
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of
necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 2 Cor 9:7 (KJV)


As we walk in our day to
day lives it is easy to fall into
our fast pace life and worry
.^ about the things hat wec have
i "to get done or to accomplish.
S' God wants us to be

.1 to ourselves but to him and
i~ others also. God wants us to
give him our praise, our hearts
and finally give him our
thanks.
Be kind and thoughtful slow
|down and smell the roses and
think of others and the many
.? W blessings God has given to us.
We need to thank God in all
things.

Look to lend a helping hand to someone who is need or someone who needs a word of
encouragement as a FawKty.

Happy Tails from Petfinder.com presents



A chance to dance


by Joan Banks


Lobo, a Pomeranian, stands up
on his hind feet and twirls in a
little dance, a trick he
undoubtedly learned before his
first family came on hard times.
As financial pressures increased,
the family relinquished him to
an animal shelter, where he
cowered fearfully in a cage,
surrounded by barking dogs,
bright lights and strangers. His
timid demeanor kept him from
putting his best foot forward
when it came to getting adopted.
Worse yet, his days were
numbered because the shelter,
which had an open admission
policy and took in strays picked
up by animal control, had to
make room for more homeless
pets being brought in daily.
Lobo's dancing days seemed
over.
Luckily, Last Chance Ranch
(LCR) in Quakerstown, Pa.,
pulled Lobo out of the shelter
and posted his description and
photo on Petfinder.com.
Meanwhile, Robin Good of


Lunenburg, Mass., was looking
for a Pomeranian to adopt. She
was "smitten" with Lobo the
moment she saw him on
Petfinder, she says. After
making the necessary
application and providing
references, she got the word:
She could adopt Lobo.
Her husband tended their herd
of three dogs and three cats at
the homestead while she made
the 12-hour roundtrip drive to
get Lobo.
"Our home pack miraculously
accepted Lobo immediately, and
he has fit in perfectly," she says.
"We have the dual satisfaction of
having Lobo as our companion
for the rest of his life and
knowing that by adopting a dog,
we have saved the lives of two:
the one we adopted and the one
we made room for at LCR."
LCR's volunteers helped Lobo
regain his self-confidence, Good
says, and the little guy is back to
dancing again.
Visit Petfinder.com today to
save a homeless pet.

THE SAVVY


Senior



Dear Savvy Senior,

To keep up with all the differ-
ent doctors I see and medica-
tions I take, a friend recently
suggested I start keeping my
own medical records at home,
but I'm not sure where to start.
Can you offer any tips or sug-
gestions on the best way to go
about doing this?

Unorganized Annie

Dear Annie,

Keeping a set of your own
personal health records is a great
tool to help you get a better han-
dle on your own health care, as
well as avoid possible medical
errors. Here are some tips to
help you get started.
It's a fact that the more doc-
tors you see, the more medical
files you have. And the more
scattered your medical records
are, the higher your risk of drug
errors, missed diagnoses, and
other dangerous glitches. The
solution: Keep a set of your own
records at home. And with all
the self-help tools available
today, it's easier than it sounds.

Helpful Tools
Today, there are literally
dozens of Web sites, computer
software and paper-based prod-
ucts (some are free; others
charge) that can help you gather
your medical information, cre-
ate your health records and keep
them updated. The idea: Having
your own health history at your
fingertips can ensure better,


more coordinated care. To find a
listing and links to all the differ-
ent kinds of electronic and
paper based self-help tools visit
www.myphr.com and click on
"Tools and Resources," then
click on "PHR Tools and
Services."

Getting Started
To start your personal health
record, you'll need to request a
copy of your health records
from all your healthcare
providers, including your gener-
fal practitioner, plus your eye
doctor, dentist, and any other
specialist you have seen. Find
out if your records are in an
electronic format you can
access, or request paper copies.
Once you have your paper
records in hand, keep them
together in a file folder or binder
so they're easy to find. Organize
the information in a way that
makes sense to you, but mark it
clearly, so it makes sense to oth-
ers as well. And be sure your
loved ones have access to it if
you become incapacitated. If
your records are stored electron-
ically (on your computer or a
Web site), be sure they know
where to find it, and have any
necessary passwords for access.
After you've created your
personal health record, be sure
to take it with you to all doctor
appointments and remember to
keep updating it. To make your
electronic health records
portable there are a number of
handy USB flash drives (like
www.medkey.com, \vww.emry-
stick.com, www.vitalkey.com)
that are about the size of a house
key that can hold your medical
records and be updated easily.

What to Include
Here's a .checklist of what
should be included in your per-
sonal health record:


Personal information:
name, contact info, birth date,
Social Security number.

Emergency contacts
including phone numbers.

Physicians, dentists,
other specialists. Include
addresses, phone numbers.


Health insurance infor-


mation.


Living will, medical
power of attorney, advance
directive.

Organ donation author-
ization, if any.
List and dates of signif-
icant illnesses or surgeries. You
could request and include a copy
of your "discharge summary"
from each hospital where a sur-
gery took place.
Current medications
and dosages.
Immunizations and
dates.
** Allergies or sensitivi-
ties to drugs.
Hereditary conditions
in your family; important dates,
*i.e. father died of heart attack at
ag e50. See wwwfamilyhisto-
ry.hhs,gov.
\Results of recent phys-
ical exam,
Opinions of specialists
you saw.
Important test results;
dental and eye records.
Correspondence with
your health care providers.

Bill funds research, extension services


The Florida Farm Bureau
praised Gov. Charlie Crist and
the Florida Legislature after the
Governor approved the budget.
The budget for the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (UF-
IFAS) contains proviso lan-
guage inserted by legislators
stating that funds "...are provid-
ed for the research and exten-
sion services of IFAS and shall
not be transferred or used for
any other purpose."


"In approving the budget,
Gov. Crist 'has ensured that UF-
IFAS will continue to fulfill the
three-fold mission of teaching,
research and Extension that is so
important to the future sustain-
ability of Florida's agriculture
industry," said Florida Farm
Bureau President John L.
Hoblick.
The state's agriculturists
became alarmed early in the ses-
sion when it was rumored that
UF-IFAS had been slated for


budget cuts that were dispropor-
tional to budget cuts in other
University of Florida programs.
UF-IFAS is a federal-state-
county partnership dedicated to
developing knowledge in agri-
culture, human and natural
resources, and the life sciences.
Hoblick also praised Gov.
Crist for approving the budget
as passed by the legislature.
The Florida Farm Bureau
Federation is the state's largest
agricultural association.
