W-accasassa man arrested in the death of 4-year-old daughter


By Carrie A. Mizell
Four-year-old Kristina Hepp had
a shy little smile and was well liked
among her pre-kindergarten class-
mates at Trenton Elementary School.
She was very sweet, her teacher said,
and always well behaved.
Kristina's sudden death on Monday
morning and the subsequent arrest of
her father has left the community in
shock, and cast a dismal gloom over
what would have been a carefree
spring break from school.
"I just don't .understand how this
could have happened," said Ashley
Hines, one of Kristina's pre-kinder-
garten teachers. "She was the sweet-
est little girl."
Kristina's father, Matthew G. Ro-
land, 23, ,of Waccasassa, is being
held on $750,000 bail after being
arrested and charged with the brutal
death of his daughter. Roland has
been charged with a felony count of
aggravated child abuse and a felony
count of aggravated manslaughter of
a child.
According to Major Tony Smith of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
Roland was granted temporary custo-
dy of his daughter four months ago,


and she has since been living with
him and his girlfriend in a mobile
home in Waccasassa.
An incident report filed by Inves-
tigator Tracy Taylor of the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office indicates that
a 911 call from Roland came in to the
Sheriff's Office at 5:33 a.m. on Mon-
day.
Roland told the dispatcher that his
daughter was not breathing. He also
said that she had been having trouble
breathing for the past hour.
When EMS arrived oni scene they
found Kristina. lying on the liv-
ing room floor. According to EMT
James Campbell, the child was unre-
sponsive, not breathing, and had no
pulse.
According to Investigator Taylor,
the child had significant bruising to
her forehead, left eye and cheek. She
indicated that Kristina's left eye was
sunken in, indicating possible broken
bones around the eye socket. The
child also had fresh and old bruises
on her thighs and fresh bruises on
her upper arms and shoulder areas.
Two deep scratches and bloody cir-
cular marks were found on Kristina's
lower back.


Matthew Roland
Medical Examiner Martha Burt,
M.D., responded to the scene and
pronounced the child deceased. In
addition to the injuries noted by In-
vestigator Taylor, Dr. Burt observed
that the child's upper lip was torn on
the inside of her mouth where it at-
taches to the gum. Dr. Burt also ob-
served bruising on the child's leg that
visually matched the size and shape
of an electric hair straightener that
was found in the bathroom. Blood
was observed in the bathroom sink,


and a patch of hair with a piece of
scalp tissue attached was in the bath-
tub drain.
According to Dr. Burt, Kristina's
injuries amounted to great bodily
harm, permanent disability, or per-
manent disfigurement.
When interviewed by investigators
from the Sheriff's Officers, Roland
said that he had "got into it",with the
child the night before and that he had
"spanked" her. Later, Roland stated
that he had disciplined the child by
striking her with a belt on Sunday af-
ternoon.
SRoland's girlfriend, Chelci Folds;.
said that Roland picked her up from
work on Sunday afternoon around
4:15 and Kristina wasin her car seat
in the vehicle. Folds said she noticed
bruising to the child's eye and that
Kristina seemed sleepy and did not
appear "right." Folds explained that
when they got home, Kristina did not
want supper, so she was put to bed.
Investigator Taylor said that at
some point during the night, the child
reportedly had difficulty breathing
and Roland attempted to give her a
nebulizer treatment.
Later Sunday evening, Folds said

Emergency Management chief

answers concerns over swine flu


lae o B. Carrie A Nlizell
le of Gilchrist Counts officials are tak-
\ ill con-
sunshine ing part in dailN conference calls
through ith the state Department of Health
hr ough to monitor the swine flu situation.
miles itrcn According to Ron Mills, chief of
ed offto Gilchrist County Emergency Man-
t officers agement, more human cases of the
swine influenza virus infection are
.. identified in the United States and
internationally each day. Each new
case is linked to the same virus strain
found in Central Mexico.
On Tuesday morning Mills said
that his office had not received any
calls from concerned citizens regard-
ing swine flu, though he feels like the
media's portrayal of the outbreak will
lead to calls.
"We don't want people rushing out
to get a flu shot," Mills said.
The emergency management chief
said that the situation is alarming and
should be taken seriously, but it is
just an outbreak, not a crisis.
"We are considering this as train-
ing for preparation and response,"
Mills said.
At press time the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention (CDC)
listed 40 human cases of swine flu in
the United States. Confirmed cases
include seven in California, two in
Kansas, 28 in New York City, one in
Ohio, and two in Texas.


Despite some media coverage
comparing the outbreak to concerns
raised by the current avian influenza
virus, there are a number of critical
differences. One distinction accord-
ing to the CDC is that, unlike avian
flu strain, which has no known anti-
viral, laboratory testing has found the
swine influenza virus is susceptible
'to prescription antiviral drugs.

Something not many people


performers, those companies whose
price has fallen due to overall market
trends rather than a specific ailment
within the company, often see their
share prices take to the skies again,
much like the proverbial Phoenix. So
if you were riot fortunate enough to
board the train the first time around,
you may have another chance.
An excellent example of a train
once again leaving the station is St.
Jude Medical, a company I have
written about any number of times.
St. Jude manufactures and distrib-
*utes cardiovascular medical devices.
When I wrote about the company a
year ago, my earnings estimate for
2008 was $2.10 per share. Excluding
one-time charges and a fourth quarter
income tax benefit, adjusted net earn-
ings for 2008 were $807 million or
$2.31 per share.
So does the company continue to
perform? In its recently released first
quarter statement, St. Jude reported
net earnings of $201.3 million or
$0.58 per share. Operating profit for
the quarter increased to $282.3 mil-
lion from $259.5 million last year. Net
sales for the first quarter increased 12
percent to $1.134 billion from $1.011
billion in the year-ago period. After
adjusting for 'the impact of foreign
currency, sales increased 17 percent
over last year.
Selling, general and administrative
expense for the quarter did increase
to $417.7 million from $367.1 mil-
lion a year ago, while research and
development expenses came in at
$139.3 million, up from $123.6 mil-
lion a year ago.
In. its forward looking guidance,
the company said it expects earn-
ings for the second quarter of 2009'
to be in the range of $0.62 to $0.64
per share. For the full-year, St. Jude
Medical reaffirmed its earnings guid-
ance of $2.48 to $2.54 per share. Of
note is the 37.5 percent five-year
compounded annual growth rate of
free cash.
Sector wise, St. Jude is in a highly
competitive industry characterized by
short product life cycles and volatile
fluctuations in market share. At the.
same time, potential competitors face
"significant barriers due to the lengthy
FDA approval process and the major
investments required in both R&D
and distribution.
Looking at St. Jude's competitors,
Boston Scientific recently reported a
first-quarter net loss of $13 million
or $0.01 per share, compared to net
income of $322 million or $0.21 per
share for the same period a year ago:
Net sales declined to $2.01 billion


The Contrite And Broken Heart
(Kent Heaton)


The sacrifices of the Law of Moses were ordained by
God as a sign of the covenant between Israel and the Lord
(Psalm 50:5). Reading the Law unfolds a myriad of
sacrifices that required the people to offer oxen, sheep,
goats, grain, drink offerings, peace offerings and so forth.
"Solomon offered a sacrifice of peace offerings, which
he offered to the Lord, twenty-two thousand bulls and
one hundred and twenty thousand sheep" (1 Kings 8:63).
During the course of the Law governing the sacrifices
Including the sacrifices of-Abraham and the faithful of the
Lord, millions of animals were slaughtered.
In David's mournful Psalm of sorrow over sin the
psalmist declares, "For You do not delight in sacrifice,
otherwise I would give it; You are not pleased with burnt
offering. The sacrifices, of God are- a broken spirit; a
broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise"
(Psalms 51:16-17). Israel lost the message of God's true
intent of sacrifices. It was not about the killing of animals
but the destruction of a proud heart. In the midst of his sin
with Bathsheba, David recognized that no amount of
animal sacrifice dould take away the guilt of his sin. He
knew that what God required was a spirit broken with1the
grief of sin and a heart remorseful of the shame he brought
to his heavenly Father.
Godly sorrow is the essence of repentance. "For the
sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a
repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the
sorrow of the world produces death" (2 Corinthians
7:10). When one comes before the throne of God in
sorrow it can only be from a heart broken by the weight of
sin. Isaiah declares, "For thus says the high and exalted
SOne who lives forever, whose name is Holy, 'I dwell on a


high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly
of spirit in order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to
revive the heart of the contrite"' (Isaiah 57:15).
Sorrow in repentance comes from a heart that has been
crushed under the weight of bringing shame to the
Heavenly Father, to His Son and to the Holy Spirit.
"Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at
home or absent, to be pleasing to Him" (2 Corinthians
5:9). The relationship with the Father is based upon an
earnest desire to please Him in everything. When we fail to
do that and' we follow our own desires, the feelings of
sorrow should overwhelm us with untold grief as we
realize we have been displeasing to God.
Nathan came to David and told him God knew what he
had done. When faced with the realization of his sin, David
did not react in pride and, arrogance, defending his actions.
"Then David said to Nathan, 'I have sinned against the
LORD'" (2 Samuel 12:13). David's heart was broken and
contrite. He experienced the grief of his sin within his own
heart and when brought before God through the hand of
Nathan, his grief increased dramatically. David was a man
after God's own heart (Acts 13:22) because David
understood that no number of animals could bring him
closer to God without a heart that was broken down with
guilt and overwhelmed with the knowledge of what sin had
done.
Our view of sin must be based upon the understanding
of its impact upon our lives. Repentance is the willingness
to humble the heart in broken tones of deep remorse in the
presence of God. "These, Of God, You will not despise"
(Psalm 51:17).

from $2.04 billion in the earlier-year
quarter.
This past February, Medtronic re-
ported its third quarter results, post-
ing a net income of $723 million or
$0.65 per share; compared to income
of $77 million or $0.07 per share in
the prior year period. Third quarter
revenue was $3.49 billion, as com-
pared to $3.41 ,billion a year ago.
-The intrinsic value of St. Jude's
shares, using a discounted earnings
approach, yields a per share value
of $68, while the more conservative
discounted free cash flow to the firm
model suggests an intrinsic value of
$76.
The shares recently closed at
$35.50 and have traded in the range
of $24.98 to $48.49 during the past
52 weeks. The average daily volume
over the past three months has been
about 4.03 million shares.
I am raising my 2009 earnings es-
timate to $2.55 from $2.50 per share,
with a forecast of $2.90 per share for
2010. My 12-month target price on
the shares is $42, representing a gain
of 18 percent. The company does not
pay a dividend..

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON

By Cindy Jo Ayers .


Carrie, Allie and I went on a much
awaited trip last week to Southern
Louisiana. It has been a while since
Carrie and I have been on a girls only
trip. Carrie decided that since Allie is
now 6 months old she was old enough
to go on her first mother, daughter
and grandmother adventure.
For years we have talked about
traveling to Louisiana and spending
some time taking in the sights and
trying their wonderful food.
We spent our first night in Fairhope,
Alabama. Fairhope is a beautiful town
which is flocked with flower beds.
The entire downtown area is com-
pletely planted with flowers from the
curb to the side walk. They also have
hanging baskets of geraniums hang-
ing at each street corer; the flowers
were just beautiful.
That night we went to Ed's Sea-
food Shed between' Fairhope and
Mobile in Spanish Fort, Alabama.
The people were very friendly and
the food was great. I had a bowl of
crab and shrimp bisque that was some
kind of good. Ed had a very interest-
ing collection of sheet music with a
Southern theme. He also had a large
collection of fish and oyster dishes
that Carrie.was impressed with.
The town has wonderful little
shops which Carrie and I enjoyed
exploring. Allie, however, hasn't
caught on to the joy of shopping yet
but she sure enjoyed all thte attention
she received from the shopkeepers in
Fairhope.
Fairhope was only about three
hours from our destination which was
Vacherie, Louisiana and Oak Alley
Plantation. As we drove down wind-
ing River Road, we passed St. Joseph
Plantation which was built in 1830.
The 28 Live Oaks, which are nearly
three hundred years old, were very
impressive as they formed a canopy
across the road leading to the man-
sion. The big house was to die for,
and I'm sure Scarlet would have fit
right in at Oak Alley.
We spent the night at one of the
guest houses that have been moved
to the plantation. These small white
cottages which are about.100 years
old were a really wonderful place to
stay.
They have a restaurant at the plan-
tation, but it closes at 3 p.m. so we
traveled about 20 minutes up River
Road to Hymel's Seafood Restaurant
in Convent for supper. Wow, what an
experience. We dined with the locals
and really got a feel for not only the
region's cuisine but also what the lo-
cal folk are like. The live music was
loud and Allie loved it. Let's just say
they sure know how to have a good
time in South Louisiana. The restau-
rant has been around for many years
and is known as one of the best area
seafood restaurants. I ate an eggplant,
crab and shrimp dish. Carrie had
some really good fried oysters which
were crispy with a slightly hot bread-
ing and Remoulade sauce on the side.
I'm a little sorry that I didn't break


down and order the boiled crawfish
that many of the locals were eating.
The next morning we ate breakfast
at the Oak Alley Restaurant which
specializes in Cajun and Creole dish-
es. We had fresh fruit ahd Beignets
which were really good. How, may
I ask, can you go wrong with deep
fried bread sprinkled with powdered
sugar.
Next we traveled further along river
road to Houmas House Plantation and
did the house tour which took about
one hour. The tour was really good
and filled with the customs of the day
when the plantation was in its heyday
from about 1830 until the time of the
Civil War. During this time, known
as the Great Sugar Empire of the
1800s, the owners of the plantations
along River Road were some of the
wealthiest people in America. Parts
of Houmas House were built in 1770,
and later Wade Hampton II added on
to,the mansion in 1829.
The stories of both homes and the
people who lived in them through the
years were fascinating. There was
also some history of the people who
worked the sugar plantations as well.
One of the most interesting items
was a map that was found at Houmas
House in the 1980s. It was a pre-civil
war map that was hidden in the floor-
boards of the home and uncovered'in
the 80s when air conditioning was
being installed. This map listed all
the plantation locations, their owners'
names, number of slaves, and acres
of land in each plantation in the entire
South. Apparently before the war the
map was hidden and never recovered
until its recent discovery. This map
was perfectly intact and framed in the
entryway. There are only two other
such maps like this in the country and
they are not in good shape.
Next week I'll finish our trip to
Southern Louisiana and the River
Road area.

SCarrie and I purchased a bag of
Pralines from th ~ftf shop' at 'Oak
-Alley and they' wre great. Here's a
similar recipe.

1 stick real butter
18 ounces evaporated milk
4 cups sugar (or raw sugar)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups chopped pecans
Combine the butter, milk and sugar
in a heavy saucepan. Add the va-
nilla and cook on high heat to bring
the mixture to a rolling boil. Reduce
the -heat to medium and continue to
boil, stirring constantly. When the
temperature on candy thermometer
reaches the-softball stage (235 de-
grees), remove from the heat. Add
the pecans and stir until the mixture
thickens. Quickly spoon onto a sheet
of lightly oiled aluminum foil. Cool.
Lift the pralines from the foil using a
thin-bladed knife. Store in an airtight
container.

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L


In the South, we call it "havin' a
hissy fit." Picture a two-year old on
the floor kicking and screaming...
wanting their own way and having
a temper tantrum to get it. If you
haven't heard one lately, walk near
the toy aisle or the candy rack at
Wal-Mart, and chances are good
that you will. To be sure, a two-year
old doesn't leave home planning
to throw a fit...it happens when
the desire for something arises and
there is no understanding of hqw to
deal with those desires if they aren't
satisfied. While these scenarios are
far from pleasant, they are necessary
life lessons in maturing. The real
problem comes when a tantrum
produces positive results instead of
unpleasant consequences, because
behavior that gets us what we want
will be continued. If we never hear
the word "no," we will not develop
the ability td control our desires and
feelings no matter what our age. To
be immature is to be incomplete or
underdeveloped, and unfortunately
two year olds are not the only ones
suffering from this condition.
The Bible- addresses maturity in
what is commonly referred'to as the
"love chapter," of all places! I Corin-
thians 13:11 has this to say:
"When I was a child, I talked like
a child, I thought like a child, I rea-
soned like a child. When I became
a man, I put childish ways behind
me."
While hopefully you haven't wit-
nessed a "down-on-the-floor fit" by
any adults lately, immaturity affects

many over the age of 18, especially
in the arena of relationships. Temper
tantrums may look a bit different at
an older age, but call them what they
are...throwing a fit to get your way.
Whether using intimidation: yell-
ing, screaming, slamming doors and
throwing things, or manipulation:
giving the cold shoulder, refusing to
talk, withholding affection...the real
issue is immaturity. When we con-
tinue to talk, think and reason like a
child, we are refusing to put childish
ways behind us.
According to Christian authors
Henry Cloud and John Townsend,
"The good thing about immaturity
is that it is not an incurable disease.
The right treatment will get rid of it."
What do they recommend? First, let's
own up to immature behavior in our-
selves and recognize the impact it is
having on our relationships. Second,
hang in there and commit to discuss
and work through conflict without
trying to deny it or exploding. ,Imag-
ine that same two-year old we first
mentioned, standing up, brushing
himself off and saying, "You know
Mom, you're right. 1 don't need that
toy today. I'll just'look forward to
getting it for my birthday." That
level of maturity in a child would
make our jfws drop...and facing our
own immaturity may have the same
affect on our loved ones! Not easy,
but right...and the first step toward
maturity. Having great relationships
are worth the effort, because their
hearts...and yours, really do matter!
Blessings, Angle

review for Bell Elementary

School's Dog Biscuits


By BES Fifth'Grade Gifted Students
Area dogs are once again giving
four paws up review of Doggone
Dog Biscuits being produced and
sold by First Graders at Bell Elemen-
tary School (BES)! This economics
project was a collaborative: effort
between all the first graders and the
gifted students at BES. The proceeds
from the sale of the biscuits will be
given to For Pet's Sake, a non-profit
organization which gives area pets
reduced vouchers for shots and/or
spaying and neutering
Mrs. Rush's gifted students re-
searched the over population problem
of area pets, set up a budget, made
production and sales projections, and
assisted first graders in producing the
biscuits.
There is no doubt that first graders
supplied all the muscle! Theistudents.
mixed, rolled, cut out, and bagged


over 5,000 dog biscuits! The students
were also responsible for selling them
each day after school.
The students learned that no prod-,
uct is salable without promoting it.
The first graders advertised the bis-
cuits by making quality posters and
producing commercials via our own
WBES News Show.
Our 21st Century work force will
be dependent on workers who can
work together in the future. Our
BES first graders and gifted students
proved that "when we work togeth-
er-we get the job done!"

by Brandon McElroy
To bring the 2009 regular season to
a close, the Tigers faced only 3 more
opponents; 3 of which the Tigers had
already played and already defeated.
Melody Christian, Newberry, and the
all-time great rival Chiefland Indians
all awaited their second chance at
playing the Trenton Tigers.
To open the final week of the regu-
lar season, Melody Christian came
to Trenton on Tuesday all tuned up.
Although the Wolves put on a cool
front, seemingly ready to play ball,
the Tigers would very quickly and
very efficiently shut them down! The
Tigers' will to win surpassed that of
the Wolves by a great margin, and
it was evident in efforts on the field.
Starting on the mound for the Tigers
was sophomore Caleb Smith, who
brought some of.his absolute best
pitching into this matchup. Smith al-
lowed only 2 hits the entire game and
gave up no runs! Offensively, runs
were scored in every inning the Ti-
gers came up to the plate! In addition
to his great pitching, Smith also went
perfect at the plate hitting 2 for 2 and
driving in 5 runs! One of his hits was
a double and the other a triple. Justin
Alvarez, Corbyn Pugh, and Steven
Smith also went perfect at the plate.
Kolton Mims and Cody Hardy con-
tributed to the run away as well.
The Tigers played very fundamen-
tally sound baseball and ended this
matchup in just 5 innings of play!
The final score to' this blow out was
,your Trenton Tigers 11 and the Melo-
dy Christian Wolves 0!
Every season there is a group of
seniors that get to experience playing
on their home turf for one last time.'
Thursday night, Justin Alvarez, C.J.
Bowers, Michael Elliott, and Ryan
Schmitz were honored before the
game and thanked for the wonderful
sportsmanship, leadership, and ath-
leticism they brought to the Trenton
Tigers dugout.
Even though the Tigers were enjoy-
ing the atmosphere and their seniors.
for one last time at home, the New-
berry Panthers came to the Jungle
ready to spoil'senior night. In the first
couple innings, errors (both men-
tal and fielding) ate the Tigers up.
However, determined not to be em-
barrassed on senior night, the Tigers
pulled it together just long enough to
score the runs needed to win. The Ti-
gers did not take advantage of their
base runners or their base hiit as they
left 6 runners in scoring position
and an overall total of 8 stranded on
base!
The Tigers had 9 hits on the night
and allowed 5 walks and only 3 runs


to score. The seniors helped their
team yet again to come out victori-
ous and win by the final score of your
Trenton Tigers 4 and the Newberry
Panthers 3. Ryan Schmitz played
fantastic baseball going 2 for 4 and
driving in 2 runs!
As the tradition is every year, the
final game of the season the Tigers
travel to Chiiefland to face the wiles
of the Indians. After upsetting the
Indians the first match, the Indians
came out seeking revenge on the Ti-
gers. /
Much like the 1st matchup, pitch-
ing was exceptional and innings flew
by; for the most part all 7 innings
were 3 batters up, 3 batters down. In
the 3rd inning, the Tigers would take
the lead 2-0 thanks to Karson Gil-
berts clutch hitting! The lead would
last until the 5th inning when mental
errors overtook the Tigers and com-
placent play came back to haunt them
once more. The Indians stole the lead
back by scoring 3 runs in the 5th and
by scoring an insurance run in the 6th
inning. The' Tigers just were not up
to the challenge of hitting Chiefland's
pitcher, who threw extremely well.
The final score to this great matchup
was your Trenton Tigers 3 and the
Chiefland Indians 4. This wraps up.
the 2009 regular season of Trenton
High School baseball with a record
of 14-6!
Another tight game was lost due to
the simple fact of errors and not fin-
ishing the ball game. The Tigers will
have to take this lesson to heart and
apply it quickly as the district tour-
nament is here! Ii is now win or go
home!


4-Pets Sake news
Do you know what time it is? It's
Doggone Dog Biscuits time. Debbie
Rush's gifted class and the first grade
classes of Bell Elementary School

Career Day a huge success

at TES


TES participated in their annual ca-
reer day Friday, April 24. Thanks to
our community, the students learned
about a variety of careers: dentist,
firefighter, photographer, US Mar-
shall, truck driver, chef, alpaca farm-
er and much, much more.
Students gathered and watched a
cowboy rope and ride cattle and talk
about how he pens cattle for farmers
to take to market and law enforce-
ment when cattle are on the high-
way. The students were mesmerized
by the talent and career of Darrell
Plank. Students learned a great deal
about cattle and career opportunities
in this industry. Additionally, the De-
partment of Corrections sent officers
who brought the bloodhounds for the
students to see. Again, the students
were intrigued by what they learned
from these officers and bloodhounds.
The students rotated through many
different career presenters and
learned about a variety of career op-

Board of Realtors

This public service announcement is
brought toyou by the Dixie Gilchrist,
SLe,) Board of Rtalior:.
If first-time homebuyers wait until
November to sign a sales contract, it's
probably too late to get the $8,000 tax
credit. To qualify, buyers must close
before Dec. 1 a signed contract is not
enough. New construction should be
started by mid-summer to qualify.
To qualify for the tax credit, home
buyers must have not owned a home for
three years prior to the purchase and
have a modified adjusted gross income
(MAGI) less than $95,000 for single tax
payers and $170,000 for couples.
Rates on 30-year mortgages fell.
slightly to 4.8 percent this week and
remained just ahead of record lows
posted this month, according to Freddie
Mac.
Last year at this time, the average rate
on a 30-year mortgage was 6.03
percent, and it has been below 5 percent
for six straight weeks.
Now is the perfect time to BUY! Call

The Florida Department
of Health is ready to
respond to Swine Flu
While no cases have been identi-
fied in Florida at this time, cases of
swine flu have been confirmed in the
U.S., according to the federal Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention.
There are an undetermined number
of cases in Mexico reaching into the
hundreds.
"This is a situation where we must
all be on the alert," said Dr. Ana Vi-
amonte Ros, Florida's State Surgeon
General. "We have increased our
surveillance and we're telling doctors
that since the flu season is waning, if
they see patients with sudden onset
high fever and a cough or sore throat,
they should collect a specimen for
testing."
Dr. Viamonte Ros said the Florida
Department of Health has a response
plan and has put it into play. "Our
state laboratories have the equip-
ment necessary and our personnel are
trained in identifying influenza sam-
ples. We have increased surveillance,
alerted doctors and are working with
our local health departments," she
said.
Florida has prepared for influenza
events: All state laboratories have
the facilities to safely identify influ-
enza samples. The state has almost
100 sentinel physicians who report
any unusual influenza like activity
to DOH and the CDC. We have'the
ability to monitor the sale of over the

counter drugs, as an early warning
sign for increased influenza activity.
The State Surgeon General pro-
vided these recommendations: As
always, people with respiratory ill-
ness should stay home from work or
school to avoid spreading infections,
including influenza, to others in the
community. Avoid close contact with
people who are coughing or other-
wise appear ill. Avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth. Wash hands
frequently to lessen the spread of
respiratory illness. People experienc-
ing cough, fever and fatigue, possibly
along with diarrhea and vomiting,
should contact their physician. If you
think you have influenza, please call
your health care provider and discuss
whether you need to be seen in their
office or emergency department or
stay home.
Swine influenza viruses are not
transmitted by food and a person
cannot get swine influenza from eat-
ing pork products. The infections ap-
pear to spread from person to person.
Drugs called antivirals can reduce the
consequences of contracting the flu,
if taken early.
Dr. Viamonte Ros said Florida
is receiving frequent updates from
the CDC, and is working with local
health departments to monitor the sit-
uation and immediately follow up on
any suspected cases. The CDC has
created a Webpage with information
at www.cdc.gov/swineflu.
The Florida Department of Health
is ready to respond to this emerging
event," Dr. Viamonte Ros said. "We
have plans in place for this kind of
emergency."

AARP and our community. Thank
you, Norm.
A special thank you to Commis-
sioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr. for sup-
plying the chicken that was so excel-
lently cooked by.Billy Cannon and
Ron McQueen and to all of the mem-
bers who brought "fixins" and des-
serts. Also, we want to thank Amos
Philman, Jr. and his mother Alene
Philman who sang and played for our
listening enjoyment.
This was a great meeting with 89
in attendance, and we now have 118
members.
I am sure that we are the fastest
growing chapter in'Florida. Any-
one who is not attending is missing a
great chance for senior (50 plus) fel-
lowship. Remember to invite some-
one new, to our -next meeting. We
are all members of the Membership
Committee.
Hope to see everyone at the next
meeting on May 19. We will'have
an interesting speaker and a delicious
covered dish lunch.

GECHRIST COUNTY JOU L


The two key-note speakers,, Kyle
Stone and Donna Creamer, brought
interesting information about local
springs and recreational areas. Also,
they told us that this is an excellent
year for a "staycation," which means
to stay at home and vacation locally.
The members appreciated the maps
and DVD hand-outs. We also want
to thank them for the door prizes that
they brought.
At the short business meeting, a
vote was taken to have all future
meetings, including the three sum-
mer months, at the Otter Springs
Lodge. President Randy Durden said
that he would bring our petition be-
fore the board of county commission-
ers at their next meeting. We feel that
this should pass since four out of five
of the Commissioners attended our
meeting.
President Randy Durden presented
Norm Conti with the AARP and REA
Unit Community Service Award in
appreciation for his outstanding ser-
vice to the association and his efforts
to create the good in our community.
He does an outstanding job for both

New insights on the ecology of

springs presentation April 30


If you are concerned about the in-
creasing algae overgrowth in many
North Florida springs and rivers, then
you will want to attend this meeting:
Dr. Matthew Cohen, Assistant Pro-
fessor of Forest Water Resources and
Watershed Systems at the University
of Florida, will be giving a presenta-
tion titled "Reevaluating the Role of
Nitrogen Enrichment in the Ecologi-
cal Decline of Florida Springs."
It will be held on Thursday, April
30, at 7 p.m. to8 p.m., at the Ft. White
Community Center in Fort White.
This free event, open to the pub-
lic, is hosted by Save Our Suwannee,
Inc. (a not for profit 501 (c) 3). There
will be light refreshments provided
afterward.
More about the presentation: Most
people presume that.a high nitrogen
level in many springs is solely re-
sponsible for those springs increas-
ing algae oyergrowth. However, it
may not be that simple! .
Dr. Cohen contributed to an exten-
sive literature review and assessment
of current knowledge on the subject
as. part of a grant to the University
, of Florida from the Florida Depart-
ment.of Environmental Protection.

SOne of the conclusions from that
rejiee\ was that, in studies where
other water quality indicators were
measured, components like phos-
phorus and dissolved oxygen were at
least as predictive of system changes
as was nitrogen.

hen received his M.E. in 1999 and
Ph.D. in 2003 through the UF Center
for Wetlands. He has been an intern

Card Of Thanks
This sincere note of thanks comes
from our hearts to yours, for all of the
display of concern with phone calls,
cards and earnest prayers on our be-
half during Carl's recent open heart
surgery experience.
He has been home for a month
now and obeying doctor's orders, and
with that, we believe he will have a
full and lasting recovery.
We have relearned how fragile life
is and how wonderful each moment
of each day is and that in those 24
hours it brings all kinds of special
blessings.
We so appreciate the fellowship
circle of precious friends we have
here in our adopted county.
May God richly bless each and ev-
ery one of you and keep you in His
care.
