Is the state changing its tune


By Vanessa Fultz,
Suwannee Democrat
Melody Lee,
Jasper News Manager

After 72 years, the state
of Florida may be changing
its tune. Florida lawmakers
are considering retiring the
current state song, "The


Swanee River (Old Folks at
Home)," due to lyrics some
say are racist.
The song was designated
the official state song in
1935.
Written by Stephen C.
Foster, the song contains
the phrase "oh, darkeys"
and references to the "old


plantation."
Sen. Tony Hill (D-Jack-
sonville) and Rep. Ed
Homan (R-Tampa) are
planning to, file legislation
next year to change the
song.,
Gov. Charlie Crist may
support the effort. At his
January inauguration Crist


abandoned the state song
in exchange for a song
written by blues singer
Charles Atkins. It's been a
long-standing tradition for
governors to pia)y the state,

Michael P. McDaniel
Jr., of Southern Truck &
Lumber, in White
Springs, and Sam Griff-
is, of DG Timber, in Live
Oak, have completed a
three-day education
program designed to
train timber harvesters
in safe, efficient and en-
vironmentally sound
logging practices. Com-
pletion of this training
earned them the indus-
try designation of Mas-
ter Logger: a profession-'
al logger with at least
one successful year of
operating experience.
McDaniel and Griffis
return to the North
Florida area with im-
proved credentials to of-
fer logging and forestry
services in this growing
segment of the local and
state economy. Forestry
contributes $5.8 million
to the Hamilton County
economy and over $68.9
million to the Suwannee
County economy. Ap-
proximately 28 employ-
ees work directly in the
Hamilton County's for-
est industry, which gen-
erates a $1.7 million pay-
roll. Suwannee County's
forest industry employs
approximately 425 em-


ployees, generating a
$20.5 million payroll.,
Forest products and pa-
per companies within
the state collectively
generate $16.6 billion in
manufactured products
and create over 133,000
jobs in local communi-
ties.
McDaniel and Griffis
traveled to Ocala, where
they participated in ses-
sions with 20 other par-
ticipants. The classes
covered technological
innovations in the, log-
ging industry, environ-
mental management, the
changing wood supply
and demands for more
sophisticated business
practices. Lectures in-
cluded topics on timber
security, endangered
species, planning for for-
est harvests, business fi-
nance, wage 'manage-
ment, logging safety, le-
gal affairs and the latest
in environmental regu-
lations.
According to Bob
Moore, Logger Educa-

National Child Abuse


Prevention Month
All Americans share a responsibility to protect our Nation's children. During
National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we renew our commitment to prevent
child abuse and neglect, and to work to enable our children to realize their full po-
tential. Childhood is a formative time and abuse can have devastating long-term
effects on young lives. In order to provide a safe environment for our young peo-
ple, parents must work to protect their children from the dangers that threaten
them. Family members, educators, public officials, and faith-based and communi-
ty organizations all play important roles in helping to ensure that children are safe
and can grow surrounded by love and stability. Preidt ui George Bush

County is the location of
Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
tural Center State Park,
which was built to memo-
rialize the author of the
state song, many people in
the community are un-
aware of the proposed leg-
islation. Those who are,
have mixed opinions about
the issue.
"Are the original lyrics
offensive to some groups
in the state of Florida?
Probably. Has the song
outgrown.its usefulness as
the state song of Florida?
Some would say, yes, but I
say 'no,'" said Johnny
Bullard of White Springs.
Bullard in a. commentary
written to the Jasper News
said, "The lyrics of the
song were written in 1851,


Several times, Essie
Brown "benched" her son
because he did not make
good grades.
"Mom said turn in your
uniform and she wouldn't
budge," said Brown. "I be-
lieve that is why I am
standing here now."
Brown encouraged the
boys to avoid bad people.
"Where will they be in five
years in jail or dead? You
know right and wrong.
Don't do wrong; don't get
in trouble. You will get
caught."
"I make mistakes; I'm


at a time in our nation's
history when society was
very different than today.
In today's world, one must
be ultra careful in what one
says and to whom, or one
could wind up in a lawsuit
or worse. In some cases,
things have gone too ex-
treme in my opinion. Nev-
ertheless, the lyrics of this
ever-popular song could
be and have been altered to
assuage the sensitivities of
any group or groups.",
Bullard added, "If the
state of Florida, however,
in its wisdom, sees fit to re-
place 'Old Folks at Home'
as the state song of Florida,
a great deal of time and ef-
fort should be devoted to
finding a replacement."

mentary on page 4A.

want to embarrass my fam-
ily or my hometown.
There's not much bad to
say about me and I want to

Brown's first year in the
NFL was hard. He would
call his wife, Karimar, cry-
ing because he could not
beat anybody. "I don't
think football is for me," he
told her the first time he
had ever said that. She told
him to remember the confi-
dence he had in college. He

think there is anything
wrong with the song.
"Those words have been
out of the song for a long
time. I have never heard
anyone sing it that way.
The song is home the
Suwannee River is home."
Rachel Selph, a native of
Hamilton County who
teaches history at Hamil-
ton County High School,
feels that a new song
should be selected that
would represent the whole
state. "The Suwannee Riv-
er is only a small part of
the state. There should be a
song that reflects the state
as a whole not just the
northern part." She also
thinks a contest would be a
good way to find a new
state song.

Former Superintendent
of Schools and Hamilton
County native Charles
Blalock remembers singing
the song in elementary
school.
"It was just part of
school. I didn't think any-
thing of it until I got older,"
he said.
Blalock agrees that the
state song should be some-
thing that originated in
Florida. Stephen Foster
never visited Florida and
never laid eyes on the
Suwannee River. He re-
portedly picked the name
off a map because it fit well'
into the song he was writ-
ing.
Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
tural Center State Park was
opened in 1950 as a memo-
rial to the man who made
the Suwannee River known
and loved all over the
world. Dioramas depict
scenes described in some of
Foster's songs.
Ben Faure, Park Manag-
er, said, "Whether or not
the song is changed we will
continue to educate the
public about Stephen Fos-
ter's contributions to
American culture. We will
continue to display the dio-
ramas and other historical
exhibits relating to his
songs and life."
Doug Gauss, a folk per-
former from Tallahassee

about Florida, has mixed

feelings about the song. He
led a campaign in the early
1990s to change the state
song, not because of any
racial reasons, but because
he felt it should be written
by a Floridian about Flori-
da. But he doesn't like the
idea of a contest because it
would create a song that is
"a product of consensus."
"Folk songs. evolve,"
Gauss said. "The song
could be adjusted. The
phrase, '0 loved ones, how
my heart grows weary,'
draws attention to itself.
One version says, 'I'm
lonely, and my heart grows
weary.' I think that is a bet-
ter way of singing it. I don't
want to hurt people's feel-
ings."
According to Gauss, the
Suwannee River is only
mentioned one time in the
song and Florida is not
mentioned at all. He said
Florida's state song is one
of two that does. not men-
tion the state by name.
Bobby Hicks, folksinger
and songwriter, who fre-
quently performs at
Stephen Foster, thinks
there is nothing wrong
with the song. "I'm afraid
they will rewrite history
until no one knows the real
history. They should accept
the fact that some things
are historical fact and some
things aren't." He also
pointed out that the. offen-
sive words had been


changed years ago. He
agrees that a contest would
be a good way to find an-
other state song if it has to
be changed.
Wayne Martin is a fiddle
player from Blountstown
who has attended the Flori-
da Folk Festival at Stephen
Foster for the past 30 years.
He said the issue has been
ongoing for several years
and it will continue to be a
point of contention. He
thinks those who feel the
song is antiquated or racist
will continue to push for
change. And he believes
there is a good chance the
song will be changed this
time.
Martin said the fact that
the words have been
changed in the song show a
change of opinion in peo-
ple. "In so doing, we are
symbolically saying we
have changed and that it is
not appropriate to use
those words." He suggest-
ed there.could be two state
songs a traditional her-
itage song and a more ap-
propriate song for state
functions. (Editor's note:
Several states have more
than one state song.)
Homan said lawmakers
will either choose a song or
allow songwriters to sub-
mit songs for a contest.

(Ci--I Y) ABUSE







Emotional abuse hard to recognize


If you suspect child abuse, report it


If you witness a child be-
ing harmed, see evidence
of child abuse, or a child
tells you about abuse, make
a report. Call Florida's
child abuse hotline, 1-800-
96-ABUSE, or contact your
local law enforcement
agency. Children die every-
day from injuries resulting
from child abuse. Often,
someone knew about the
abuse and didn't report it.
Abusive families need
help and your report could
connect them to counseling
and services they need to
relieve family stress and
prevent future abuse.
When talking to a child
about abuse, listen careful-


Organizations
Child abuse, be it physi-
cal, emotional or both, in-
stills feelings of helpless-
ness in its victims. Fortu-
nately, there are several
organizations aimed at
preventing and stopping
abuse and helping abuse
suffers cope with life after
abuse.

those who need help or

ly, then assure the child
that he or she is not to
blame for the abuse and
that he or she did the right
thing by telling an adult.
The following informa-
tion is helpful in respond-
ing to your report: the
child's name (or a descrip-
tion of the child if the name
is not known). Approxi-
mate age of the child.
Child's home address (or
where the child can be
found). Name of suspected
abuser if known. Abuser's
relationship to the child. A
description of suspected
abuse and when it oc-
curred.
Keep reporting abuse un-


til the situation is resolved.
You may not have the legal
right to know what steps
are being taken to protect
the child in question as a
result of your report, but
you can help the child in
other ways. Be a good lis-
tener show that you un-
derstand and believe what
the child tells you. Be kind
and supportive of the child.
Talk to the child's teacher,
school counselor, or minis-
ter they may be in a posi-
tion to reach out to the fam-
ily. If appropriate, you can

When parents struggle with children in public


If you see an adult yelling.
or roughly handling a child
in a public place, you might
not know whether to inter-
vene, or how to intervene
without making matters
worse for the child. First,
consider the child's immedi-
ate safety and your own per-
sonal safety. You may need
to notify the store manager
and/or police and ask that
they handle the situation.
If you feel no immediate
danger to the child or your-
self, but a situation raises
your concern, try one of
these suggested interven-
tions:
Praise the parent or child
at the fiist opportunity.
Think of something positive
to say and say it. It helps to
hear others are supportive of
you.
Identify with the parent.
You can let them know
you've been there by saying,


"My kids used to do the
same thing when they.were
that age. Is there anything I
can do to help?"
Blame the environment.
"This is such a bright and
colorful place and filled with
things children to want to
touch. I swear the supermar-
kets have really done a great
job creating a place where
children just want to run
around."
Offer sympathy and help.
"You seem to really have
your hands full. Can I help
you?" or "Can I find some-
one to come and help you
with something?"
Empathize with the child.
"You don't feel like sitting in
that stroller anymore, do
you? Well just a little longer
and Mommy/Daddy will be
all done and you can get
out."
Keep an eye on the child.
If a child is left unattended,


stand by the child until the
parent returns.
Tell parents about local
support groups you may
know of, or let them know
about the 1-800-FLA-LOVE
(352-5683) Parent Helpline.
Any assistance you can of-
fer a stressed parent will
help them feel supported.


Over the next 12 months,
there is something that will
be reported on more than
two million times and re-
sult in roughly 1,500
deaths. While those figures
suggest this is certainly not
a silent problem, for many
victims it is.
Despite the millions of
reported cases each year,
child abuse and neglect of-
ten goes overlooked. While
physical scars are difficult
to look past, emotional
abuse can be just as scar-
ring, yet far more difficult
to recognize.
Part of the problem with
child abuse and neglect is
its prevalence. Consider
the state of Missouri,
which the Child Abuse
Prevention Association
(CAPA) reports has ap-
proximately 10,000 chil-
dren in its child protection
system that have suffered
abuse or neglect. Combine
that with dwindling state
budgets, and many cases
of abuse can go unrecog-
nized or overlooked.
In addition to writing lo-
cal legislators and de-
manding more resources
be allotted to abuse and ne-
glect prevention agencies,
those concerned about
children and their well-be-
ing can take a more active
role simply by becoming
more informed about child
abuse, particularly emo-
tional abuse, which even
clinicians admit is far more
difficult to recognize than
physical abuse.
Prevent Child Abuse
Am' ii,:.[n. an organization
,dedicated to building
'awareness of child abuse
through education, notes
the difficulty in recogniz-
ing emotional abuse, in


part because the abuse is
not always noticeable to
the naked eye, like bruises
or physical scars might be.
Often, clinicians use a re-
vised version of the Child
Abuse and Trauma Scale
(CATS), which measures
degrees of child abuse.
Many times, emotional
child abuse exhibits itself
through a child's behavior
and personality.
Loyalty: Despite the
abuse, children are often
extremely loyal to "their
abuser, particularly if that
abuser is a parent. That's
because children suffering
from abuse grow to believe
one of two things (or both)
- that abuse is a normal
part of life or they will be
severely punished if they
report or indicate any signs
of abuse.
Maturity level: This can
,go one of two ways accord-
ing to Prevent Child Abuse
America. A child can either
act overly mature for his or
her age or begin to exhibit
immature behavior that is
inappropriate at that age.
Dramatic shift in behav-
ior: This is among the most
noticeable indicators of
emotional abuse, and can
include disruption of activ-
ities, clinging or compul-
sive behavior with respect
to seeking affection or at-
tention. Aggressiveness
and an unwillingness to
cooperate are also indica-
tors.
Antisocial behavior: An-
other of the more recogniz-
able indicators is when
children act sad and with-
drawn from their peers.
Abuse and neglect often re-
sult in poor self-confi-
dence, which in turn- makes
it difficult for children to


connect and have relation-
ships with their peers.
Unnatural fears for kids
their age: Most children
grow out of certain fears,
such as the fear of being left
alone or a fear of certain
objects.: Children suffering
from emotional abuse ei-
ther revert back to these
fears or never grow out of
them at all, and often are
fearful of going home.
Of course, any of these
indicators, can be exhibited
by children who aren't suf-
fering from abuse. Howev-
er, when typical behavior
patterns change into any of
the above-mentioned be-
haviors, that' does strongly
indicate emotional abuse.
Part of what makes emo-
tional abuse challenging is
the seemingly ample
amount of triggers. Parents
are not the only ones who
can trigger emotional
abuse. In fact, any adult,
whether intended or not,
can perpetrate emotional
abuse in a child. Common
triggers include: chastising
a child in public, always as-
suming the child is at fault
when something goes
wrong, putting unrealistic
expectations on a child, ad-
mitting to feelings of dis-
dain or even hatred for the
child, threatening severe

Phony science and public policy Guest Commentary


The public has become in-
creasingly aware that the sci-
ence behind manmade glob-
al warming is a fraud. But
maybe Americans like bogus
science in pursuit of certain
public policy objectives. Let's
look at it.
Many Americans find to-
bacco smoke to be a nui-
sance. Some find the odor of-
fensive, and others have al-
lergies or asthma that can be ,


aggravated by smoking in
their presence. There's little
question that tobacco smoke
causes these kinds of. nui-
sances, but how successful
would anti-smokers have
been in a court of law, or
public opinion, in achieving
the kind of success they've
achieved based on tobacco
smoke being a nuisance?
A serious public health
threat had to be manufac-

tured, and in 1993 the Envi-
ronmental Protection
Agency (EPA) stepped in to
the rescue with their bogus
environmental tobacco
smoke (ETS) study that says
secondhand tobacco smoke
is a class A carcinogenic.
Why is it bogus? The EPA
claimed that 3,000 Americans
die annually from second-
hand smoke, but there was a
problem. They couldn't come
up with that conclusion us-
ing the standard statistical 95
percent confidence interval.
They lowered their study's
confidence interval to 90 per-
cent. That has the effect of
doubling the margin of error
and doubling the probability
that mere chance explains
those 3,000 deaths.
The Congressional Re-
search Service (CRS) said,
"Admittedly, it is unusual to
return to a study after the
fact, lower the required sig-
nificance level, and declare
its results to be supportive
rather than unsupportive of
the effect one's theory sug-
gests should be present." The
CRS was being kind. This
kind of doctoring of research
results would get a graduate
student expelled from a uni-
versity.
In 1998, the World Health
Organization's International
Agency for Research on Can-
cer released the largest ever
and best formulated study
on ETS. The research project
ran for 10 years and in seven
European countries. The
study, not widely publicized,
concluded that no statistical-
ly significant risk 'existed for
nonsmokers who either lived
or worked with smokers.
During the late '90s, at a
Washington affair, I had the
occasion to be in the presence
of an FDA official. I asked
him whether he would ap-
prove of pharmaceutical
companies employing EPA's
statistical techniques in their
testing of drug effectiveness
and safety. He answered no.
I ask my. fellow Americans
who are nonsmokers: Do
you support the use' of fraud-


ulent science in your efforts
to' eliminate tobacco smoke
nuisance in bars, restaurants,
workplaces and hotels?
You say, "Okay, Williams,
the science is bogus, but how
do we nonsmokers cope with
the nuisance of tobacco
smoke?" My answer is that it
all depends on whether you
prefer liberty-oriented solu-
tions to problems or those
that are more tyranny-orient-
ed.
The liberty-oriented solu-
tion has to do with private
property rights, whereby the
owner of property makes the
decision whether he will al-
low smoking or not. If one is
a nonsmoker, he just doesn't
do business with a bar or
restaurant where smoking is
permitted. A smoker could
exercise the same right if a
bar or restaurant didn't per-
mit smoking. Publicly
owned places such as li-
braries, airport-s and munici-
pal buildings, \ here owner-
ship is ill defined. present
more of a challenge.
The tyranny-oriented solu-
tion i- where one group uses
the political system to
forcibly impose its prefer-
ences on other-.. You might
be tempted to object to the
term "tiranny,' but suppose
you owned a restaurant
where you did not permit
smoking and smokers used
the political system to create
a law forcing you to permit
smoking. I'm sure you'd
deem it tyranny.
The public policy debate
on smoking has been settled
through bogus sdence. MNI
question i., how wIlling are
we to allow bogus science to
be used in the pursuit of oth-
er public policy agendas.
such as restrictions on eco-
nomic growth, in the name of
fighting global warming?

"Old Folks at Home"
discussion
By Johnny Bullard

-This newspaper has been
very quiet, thus far, in print-
ing anything about the dis-
cussion, I won't go as far as
to say controversy, that once
again, seems to be sur-
rounding whether or not the
state of Florida should keep
"Old Folks at Home" better
known to many as "Way
Down upon the Suwannee
River" as the state song of
Florida. The Legislature of,
Florida made the song, writ-
ten by Stephen C. Foster, the
state song of Florida in 1935.
Are the original lyrics of-
fensive to some groups in
the state of Florida? Proba-
bly. Has the song outgrown
its usefulness as the state
song of Florida? Some
would say, yes, but I say
"no."
The lyncs of the song
were written in 1851, at a
time in our nation's history
when society was very dif-
ferent than today. In todav's
world, one must be ultra
careful in what one says and
to whom, or one could 'wind
up in a lawsuit or worse. In
some cases, things have
gone too extreme in my
opinion. Nevertheless, the
lyncs of this ever-popular
song could be and have
been altered to assuage the
sensitivities of any group or
groups.
If the state of Florida,
however, in its wisdom, sees
fit to replace "Old Folks at
Home" as the state song of
Florida, a great deal of time
and effort should be devot-
ed to finding a replacement.
In my opinion, a competi-
tion should be held open to
songwriters across the state,
and a committee comprised
of a good cross section of
Floridians male, female,
white, black, brown, and
yellow, Democrats and Re-
publicans should be select-
ed to serve on the committee
and select what they consid-

er to be a good song that can
be easily learned and sung
by the school children and
people of Florida.
Once it is chosen, play it.
We've never really played
"Old Folks at Home" too
much ever in the State of
Florida, except at a Gover-
nor's inauguration or at
events at the Stephen Foster
Center, and I had it played
at my Daddy's funeral but
that is because I love the
song. But, again, when the
state song is chosen, play it.
Play it at all the football
games in the state at all the
state sponsored colleges and
universities, play it all com-
mencements at state spon-
sored institutions, play it
when the Florida Legisla-
ture opens and make sure
that everyone in the state of
Florida knows the state
song.
If one polled the present
legislature, probably over
half of them wouldn't know
that "Old Folks at Home" is
the state song of Florida, and
the Governor may not have
known until he elected not
to have it played or sung at
his inauguration in January.
This seems to be the
"baby" of the present Go%-
emor and at least a couple of
legislators. Lt they move on,
let them move on. Nothing
will diminish the popularity
of "Old Folks at Home." I've
heard it sung by people all
over the world and in sever-
al languages including
French, Chinese and lapan-
ese. The music of Stephen C.
Foster is part of the all time
hit parade but when the
Governor and the legisla-
ture make their move for a
new state song. let it be one
carefully chosen, and let it
be one that people learn and
know.
And, as Forest Gump
said, "That's all I am going
to say about that."

Alabama will attend the 10th annual Open

There is a $200 entry fee with a fish lim-
it of three, including big bass. Participants
who enter before April 21 will receive a
free t-shirt.


The numbers are sober-
ing 18 boating accident
fatalities in Florida so far
this year. From Pensacola
to the Keys, boaters are on
track to have one of the
deadliest boating years in
the past 15 years.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) said
today there is somebody
who can reverse the trend
as we begin the busiest
boating days of the year.
"If you want to talk to
that person, all you have
to do is find a mirror,"
said FWC Capt. .Richard
Moore. "The FWC is urg-
ing boaters to take boating
safety seriously and focus
on two critical messages:
Pay attention to your sur-
roundings; and wear your
life jacket."
Moore said most boat-
ing accidents are pre-
ventable if boaters pay

close attention to their sur-
roundings and stay alert,
and most drowning fatali-
ties are preventable if peo-
ple wear their life jackets.
"We have to find a way
to convince more boaters
that basic boating safety is
a critical part of being on
the water," Moore said.
"Eighteen people have
died in boating accidents
so far this year, and that is
18 too many."
Moore said people wear
bike helmets, and they
wear seat belts. Life jack-
ets make just as much
sense, because they can
make so much difference.
"They should wear their
life jackets and practice
safe boating," he said.
"Many lives can be saved
simply if boaters made it a
habit always to wear life
jackets, and it's easier than
ever these days since the
introduction of inflatable


life jackets."
Accidents occur primar-
ily on small craft and in-
volve a single vessel. The
primary cause of accidents
is driver inattentiveness,
according to FWC boating
accident reports.
Col. Julie Jones, director
of the FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement, said
FWC officers will be. on
the water throughout
Florida during the boating
season.
"FWC officers will be
patrolling and watching
for unsafe vessel opera-
tion, and they will be en-
forcing boating safety
laws," she said. "We'll do
our part to reverse this ac-
cident trend, but the real
solution lies with
boaters."
"Remember," Moore
said, "one bad decision
can ruin a great day on the
water."

students, who attended the tae kwon do
tournament in Valdosta,. Ga. Jan. 27. It
was a very successful competition for

Alligators are on the move


Spring is when Florida's
alligators start getting ac-
tive, and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is urg-
ing Floridians and visitors
to be cautious when having
fun in and around water.
Alligators abound in all
67 counties and have shared
marshes, swamps, rivers
and lakes with people for
centuries. But because more
..,ir 'duA ls, e s~e jng;,a
terfront property and water-
related activities increase
during the warm months,
people should be alert when
they are in areas where alli-
gators could be present.
Closely supervise chil-

What you didn
Compiled by Bob Wattendorf
Other states charge $20
for a fishing license. Florida
gets only $12. It's reached
the point where some an-'
glers are calling on legisla-
tors to raise the fees. Al-
though a few anglers view
fishing licenses as a neces-
sary evil that is as inevitable
as taxes, most understand
what the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) uses the
money for and put the value
they receive in return into
perspective. Those anglers
realize their fishing licenses
are a great recreational bar-
gain that helps ensure safe
and sustainable recreation
fishing for themselves, their
families, friends and future
generations. Read on for a
great offer on five-year
freshwater fishing licenses.
Fishing as recreation goes
back at least 3,000 years.
Thaddeus Norris, in his
1864 publication, "The
American Angler's Book,"
specifically referred to the
need for conservation. In
Florida, the then-State De-
partment of Game and
Fresh Water Fish sold the
first state fishing licenses in
1925 to support conserva-
tion (MyFWC.com/Fish-
ing/Timeline). Since 1989,
resident anglers have paid
$12 for a freshwater or salt-
water fishing license. Those
fees in 2006 dollars equate
to $20 and are the 13th least
expensive among state
freshwater fishing license
fees and fifth lowest of the
11 states that sell saltwater
licenses.
State law guarantees
Florida anglers that all mon-
ey from the sale of fishing li-
censes goes to the FWC to
help fulfill the mission of


dren when they are playing
in or around water. State
law prohibits contact with
alligators, and it is against
the law to feed them.
There are other precau,
tionary measures people
should take to reduce po-
tential conflicts with alliga-
tors. A brochure, "Living
with Alligators," is available
at MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually re-
qeie~. more than Ib.,000
complaints about alliga-
tors. The agency removes
more than 7,000 alligators
each year when the reptiles
present danger to people
or property.
If you encounter an alli-


gator that poses a threat to
you, your pets or your
property, and the alligator

is more than four feet long,
call the FWC's toll-free
Nuisance Alligator Hotline
at 1-866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286). The telephone
number is the primary
contact for all alligator
complaints and is available
to customers 24-hours-a-
day.
fAlligators are an inmpor-
fant part of Florida's her-
itage and play a valuable

't know about fishing licenses


"Managing fish and wildlife
resources' for their long-
term well-being and the
benefit of people." Congress
mandated that state legisla-
tures agree to these terms in
order to receive the benefits
of the Federal Aid in Sport
Fish Restoration Act (SFR).
The amount of money
Florida receives is based on
the size of the state and the
number of paid-licensed an-
glers not licenses and per-
mits, but the people who
hold them. As an example,
an angler having a freshwa-
ter license, a saltwater li-
cense and a snook permit,
counts only once. Since
Florida does not charge li-
cense fees to youths under
16, adults over 65 or resi-
dent saltwater anglers fish-
ing from the shore, Florida
recovers a smaller propor-'
tion of the funds than other
states do. This is becoming
an increasing problem as
other states adjust their li-
cense structure to maximize
the number of paid-license
holders they certify for fed-
eral aid and thus recover a
greater proportion of the ex-
cise taxes paid by our an-
glers. Each certified holder
generates approximately $7
more for sport fish restora-
tion in Florida.
Sport Fish Restoration
provided $9.1 million for
Florida in 2006, of which 15
percent ($1.4 million) went
to boating access. Of the re-
maining, $7.7 million, fresh-
water fisheries conservation
received $3.2 million and
saltwater fisheries conser-
vation received $4.5 million,
based on the estimated
number of resident fresh-
water anglers versus salt-
water anglers. Those dollars
go to protect a recreational


fishing resource that has an
economic benefit to Floridi-
ans of more than $8 billion
(MyFWC.com/Facts).
Activities such as habitat
restoration, fish stocking,
conservation law enforce-
ment, artificial reefs, youth
fishing clinics and boating
access all depend on fishing
license fees and matching
Sport Fish Restoration
funds. Consequently, the
FWC encourages all anglers
to' buy a license
(MyFWC.com /License).
Even a legally exempt an-
gler can contribute to the
future of our fisheries re-
sources and the health of
our habitat in' this way.
Moreover, the Federal SFR
program contributes ap-
proximately $7 for each
new license holder.
If you want an even more
painless way to contribute,
buy a five-year freshwater
fishing license right now,
and you will automatically
receive a free-bonus pack-
age from the FWC via mail
with fishing-related, prod-
ucts donated by the indus-
try, worth more than the
cost of the license ($60 plus
issuance fees). This offer
applies only to the first
3,000 licenses sold after
March 1, 2007 and will
probably last until the end
of May; see
MyFWC.com / Fishing / 5yr-
2007.html for details and to
verify if the offer is still
available. The FWC will get
the $7 SFR match each of
the five years your license
is valid, and you can fish
for today's prices even if
the Legislature decides to
increase fees.

ing/Updates for more Fish

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


We hope you had a glori-
ous Easter! Sunday came!
This is very special to anyone
who attended the Communi-
ty Good Friday service on
last Friday evening.
This was the presentation
by Dr. Bill Floyd, pastor of
First Baptist Church, Jasper
on that evening. It was a glo-
rious message, entitled "It's
Friday, but Sunday's Com-
ing!" It was a blessed
evening to all who were pre-
sent. There could not have
been a more meaningful
evening anywhere in cele-
bration of the Easter season
than right here in Jasper.
The Community Choir,
under the able direction bf
Roger Hutto, Minister of
Music at First Baptist
Church, Jasper, presented
heart-warming messages in
song. There was also congre-
gational singing. Rev. Dale
Ames, Pastor, Jasper First
United Methodist Church,
welcomed all to the service,
followed by a Hamilton
County Ministerial Associa-
tion report by Rev. Jerry
Thomason, pastor of Harvest
Fellowship Church. The of-
fertory prayer was given by
Rev. Doug Hilliard, Pastor of
First Presbyterian Church,
Jasper. Special music was of-
fered by Greta Smidt of
Burnham Christian Church.


This
was a perfect way to enter
into the glorious Easter
weekend.
As of this writing we are
still waiting for spring.
Maybe after the Easter "cold
spell," it will hopefully begin
to get warmer. We must be
getting the wind from the re-
ally cold weather north of us.
We had heard that it was to
get down to 15 in Franklin,
N.C. Sunday morning, but I
checked the weather on In-
ternet Monday morning and
it was 48 around 10:30 a.m. I
don't know about how right
that is but maybe it will start
warming up everywhere,
then we can complain about
how hot it is. It seems easier
to me to get warm that it is to
get cool, but as we know, we
never seem to be satisfied. To
me, we usually have the best
of the weather, and should
not complain too much.
, School will be back in ses-
sion as you read this. There
will probably not be any
more holidays as school will
soon be out. Graduation is in
May and that is not far away.
Larry and Mary B. Cail
had their families for the day
on Easter Sunday. Larry,

others provided all the extras

nseasonable, mys-
U Iterious, different,
and, yet, I've seen it
often before. Are you totally
confused now? I am, of
course, referring to the
weather over the weekend
of Easter. For the first time
in a good many years, I opt-
ed to move the annual East-
er Sunrise Service at the
Stephen Foster into the
Tower Auditorium, and I
am glad I did. It was cold
enough to have a hog killing
on Easter morning. Some of
our worshipers came pre-
pared to sit outside, and
were dressed with heavy
coats, scarves, and gloves,
but I saw the look of relief
sweep across many faces
when I informed them we
would be inside for wor-
ship.
What a wonderful pro-
gram we enjoyed, as we cel-
ebrated the 40th annual
Easter Sunrise service. The
contributions of the staff at
the Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park were
many, and we appreciate all
of them. Park Manager Ben
Faure was also on hand.
Special thanks to park em-
ployees Larry Hoover and
Pat Cromer and to the fol-
lowing area churches and
individuals: Beulah Baptist,
White Springs United
Methodist, First Baptist of
White Springs, Suwannee
Church of the Nazarene,


New Bethel AME, St. Luke's
Freewill Baptist, Sweet
Home Baptist, New
Jerusalem Baptist, Long
Branch Congregational
Methodist Church, White
Springs Presbyterian,
Florine Roberts, Jerry
Bullard, and Rhett Bullard,
and the Stephen Foster Citi-
zens Support Organization.
We appreciate the contribu-
tions, and to all those who
attended the service, God
bless you.
The Antique Tractor and
Engine Show held over
Easter weekend was a huge
success. On Saturday, April
7, the Stephen Foster also
held their monthly coffee
house performance in the
park service auditorium.
You can see it was a busy
weekend for the folks over
at Stephen Foster.
Happy belated birthday
wishes go out to Juanita
Dees. Happy birthday wish-
es ,go out to April Wallace

wish her many more. April

cal Dollar General Store. We
appreciate her.

intent to reorganize into the mutual holding
company structure pursuant to 12 CFR Part
575 ("Reorganization Notice"), and to charter
an interim federal savings association that will

Buzz Mathews


just keeps plugging along


By Mike Sawyers
CNHI News Service

Charles "Buzz" Mathews caught his first
smallmouth bass in the Potomac River 70 years
ago on a cheap, floating plug.
"It's the only one my dad would let me use,"
Mathews said. "He didn't want me to lose one
of those expensive, sinking lures on some snag
at the bottom of the river."
Perhaps the greatest value of yesteryear's an-
gling paraphernalia and a collection of hun-
dreds of lures at Mathews' house on Bedford
Street is the stories they hook and pull out of
the mind of this veteran river rat.
Mathews may have been born in Cumber-
land's North End but his values were honed as
sharp as a treble hook as he drifted along on
the surface of the Potomac, usually with his fa-
ther, Thomas.
"We'd float for days and never see another
person," Mathews, an octogenarian, recalled.
"The bass season opened July 15 in those days
so that's when our floats started."
Attempts to float from Oldtown to Paw Paw
before nightfall were consistently unsuccessful.
Eventually, the Mathews started to launch a bit
farther downstream, using a sickle and a scythe
to cut through the brush so that they could
launch the homemade, 15-foot boat..
"One year we finally saw a man standing
and poling a boat down the river," Mathews
said. "My dad said we needed to catch up to
him because he could tell us things about the
river we didn't know. I'll never forget it. The
man had on a dress suit but it was several sizes
too small. The cuffs of the sleeves were way
up his arms and the pants cuffs were way up,
his legs.
"He had his sick son, about 9 or 10, wrapped
up in blanket in the bottom of the boat and was
heading on the river all the way to Hancock to
the doctor. I don't know where he came from
or what happened. We never saw him again.'"
Preparing to float the Potomac in pre-syn-
thetic days took two weeks. Wooden boats
would be soaked with scalding water until the
pieces of wood would swell enough to keep out
the river. Twenty-gallon lard cans would carry
... Jr:. ,


food and gear but had to be waterproofed on
the bottom with tar.
"We made our own ice box," Mathews said
Mathews said there is no comparing the u.e
of the river then and now. When he was a teen-
ager, he would float for days without ever heai -
ing a dog bark or seeing a person.
"The only sign of civilization were two
railroad tracks and the freight trains that
used them on the West Virginia side of
the river," he said. "Nowadays the river
is a regular playground. I think it's
cleaner but there are more fishermen
and that results in fewer fish."
I At the end of a float in the 1930s, the
Mathews would pull out at Magnolia
where a railroad worker had access to a
telephone. The call would be relayed from
place to place up the river, as was the state
of the art of phone calling in those days, until
it reached Buzz' grandfather in Cumberland


We'd float for days

and never see another

person," Mathews, an

octogenarian, recalled

"The bass season

opened July 15 in tho,

days so that's when

our floats started.

who would drive down the river and bring
them home.
There was more to a float trip on the river
than just fishing.
"I started smoking and I didn't think my par-
ents knew about it. I figured my dad would kill
me if he found out. We were starting on a
three-day trip and I thought I'd never make it
without having a smoke.


S '
-n


"As soon as we started, my dad lit his
pipe and that made me want a smoke
l. even more. After a few minutes he
turned to me and said 'boy, I brought
you a pipe and a can of tobacco but
don't ever tell your mother or she'll kill
se} both of us.'"
Mathews' biggest smallie from the.
Potomac was a 4-pounder. His dad
taught him and then Buzz taught his
seven sons that you weren't fishing un-
less one treble hook scraped dirt on the
bank when you cast. "That's where a lot
of bass lay and they strike out of instinct when
the lure hits right on them," he said.
Following a recent knee operation, Mathews
is back in floating shape. He spends a fair
amount of time, however, fishing for lures.
He's a serious collector and historian of plugs
from Pfleuger to South Bend and from Heddon
to Shakespeare.
He'll plop down 25 bucks at a lure auction

fishing lure collection

for a Shimmy Wiggler by True Temper. He'll
hit the road for a weekend at a collectors' gath-
ering.
"The collectors come in to these things from
all over the country," Mathews said. "Some
spend hundreds of dollars for one plug:but peo-
ple who aren't interested in these things would-
n't give you a dime for a whole collection."
What was Mathews' favorite, most produc-
tive lure over the years?
"Whatever lure you can keep in the water on
a regular basis is the best lure. You can't catch
'em in the kitchen. What works one day won't
work the next. You just have to keep on fish-
ing," he said.
Buzz Mathews doesn't use a steel Shake-
speare casting reel with a one-to-bne retrieve
ratio, as did his father, but he keeps on fishing,
collecting plugs and memories along the way.

e Female-Patt4
When the topics of hair and women are mentioned in the
same breath, often it's in reference to hair-removal options.
There's much talk about waxing, shaving and other routes to
hair-free bodies among the female population. What one
doesn't always hear about are the women facing another hair
issue: baldness.
Female-pattern baldness is exemplified-by all-over thinning of
the hair, whether due to hormones, aging or genetic
predisposition. Unlike male-pattern baldness, hair loss occurs
all over the head, but the hairline is maintained.
According to MedlinePlus, a service of the U.S. National
Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, hair
grows from its follicle at an average rate of about 1/2 inch per
month. Each hair grows for two to six years, then rests, and
then falls out. A new hair soon begins growing in its place. At
any one time, about 85 percent of the hair is growing and 15
percent is resting.
When baldness occurs, the hair that falls out is not replaced
by new hair. The causes of baldness are not well known, but are
linked to aging, genetics and endocrine hormones. Particularly
after menopause, hormonal changes can result in thinner hair
on the head and coarser facial hair. Although new hair isn't
being produced, hair follicles remain alive and there is the
possibility that new hair growth can be stimulated.
While baldness is largely no reason for concern from a
medical standpoint, from a cosmetic and emotional point of
view it can be traumatic. As a result, many women look for
ways to reverse or camouflage hair loss. These include:
Minoxidil treatment: Minoxidil may help hair to grow in 20
percent to 25 percent of the female population, and in the
majority it may slow or stop the loss of hair. It is the only hair-
loss drug approved by the FDA for use on women. It is
expensive, however, and hair loss may resume after treatment is
stopped.
Hair weaving or wigs: These are less-expensive options for
hiding hair loss. .
Hair transplants: Small plugs of hair from healthy areas of
the scalp are taken and transplanted where baldness is
occurring. This presents a small risk for infection and scarring,
and can also be expensive.
Suturing of hair pieces: This was once popular but is now
discouraged because attaching hair pieces to the scalp can

result in scarring, abscesses and infections. The use of hair
implants made of artificial fibers was banned by the FDA
because of the high rate of infection.
Beyond female-pattern baldfiess, there are 1ther reasons 'hlir
loss may occur in wopen. This is largely due to medications or
illnesses. Breakage from hair appliances, dying or other
chemical processes can also case hair loss. Certain skin
conditions: or immune disorders may also contribute to
baldness.
If baldness is bothersome or unexpected, talk to your doctor
to rule out any medical causes.

Tips for Buyers: Don't settle!! Buying a house is like getting married, you can't afford to pick the wrong
one. Be choosy, you have the right...Don't be rushed or manipulated into doing something you have an
uneasy feeling about. Follow your instincts, you know better than anyone what you will be happy with.

Tips for Sellers: If your home is paid for, consider offering owner financing as an incentive to credit
worthy buyers. It will provide you with a great monthly income, as well as, competitive interest on your
investment.
Put our hometown knowledge of the Suwannee Valley area to work for you.

Dear Classified Guys,
Remember the days of cassette
tapes? You know those things that
came between the 8-track and the
CD. Well I have literally hundreds of
them and I don't know what to do
with them all. Were talking thou-
sands of hours of Billy Joel,
Madonna, U2 and the Beatles, to
name a few. Throwing them out
seems like a downright crime. Today
I have everything on my MP3 player
so the tapes just sit in the closet tak-
ing up space. I can't bring myself to
toss them since I spent most of my
allowance on them growing up. My
parents are lucky. They saved all
their 45 records from their youth and
put them in a gorgeous jukebox that
they can still listen to every day.
But my generation, the one
with cassette tapes, is left _
out in the cold. Is there .
anything I can do with them "
or are they destined to sit in
my closet forever?

Carry: It seems like some things
become classics and others just become
obsolete. The hard part is trying to
guess which ones will be the classics.
Cash: Take vinyl records, for exam-
ple. Like you stated, the 45 rpm records


t.E






Duane "Cash" Hoize
& Todd "Carry" Holze '


S04/01/07
@2007 The Classified Guys


of the 50's and 60's became nostalgic,
synonymous with the "Do-Wop" era.
However, most of my records from the
70's barely get an offer at a yard sale.
Carry: Neither do my 8-track tapes!
Cash: It's not just music mediums
though. All kinds of electronics and
related items are becoming obsolete.
Videotapes are being replaced by
DVD's. Most video rental stores barely
have a VHS tape on the shelf.
Carry: And when it comes to TV's,
everyone today wants the high defini-
tion sets, LCD or plasma screens.
Cash: However, that doesn't mean
there isn't a market for your cassette
tape collection. You may be surprised


to learn that there is a collector for prac-
tically everything, even those items
bought with your hard earned
allowance.
Carry: If your tapes are originals and
not copies, then take out a short ad in
your newspaper. There may be some-
one right in your area who collects
them. You could be surprised at the
number of calls you get.
Cash: Fortunately, cassette tapes are
not completely obsolete just yet. Most
used cars are still equipped with a cas-
sette deck to play your collection.
Carry: And remember the bright
side. At least you didn't. spend your
allowance on Betamax videos.


Speeding Along
Before CD's and MP3's, vinyl records
were all the craze. But why did they come
in three speeds: 78 rpm, 33-1/3 rpm and
45 rpm? While some of the reasoning
had to do with sound quality, most was a
result of marketing. The 78's were the
standard up until the late 1940's when
Columbia mass released their 33-1/3 rpm
"Microgroove" system. The 12" record
held more music and became the new
standard. However, at the same time
RCA developed the 45 rpm record that
was only 7" in diameter. It became the
popular choice for releasing single songs.
Staying Hip
With the advances in technology, most
of us need a technical dictionary to keep
up with the lingo. Previous generations
used terms such as "record" or "cassette"
to describe the medium. Today, the lingo
is far more encrypted using abbreviations
like CD, DVD or MP3. While most of
us recognize the term "Compact Disk"
(CD), fewer know the term "Digital
Versatile Disk", formerly "Digital Video
Disc" (DVD). And for those not aware,
MP3 stands for MPEG-1 (Moving
Picture Experts Group) Audio Layer 3.
It's a good thing they shortened that!

Lessons Learned
My co-worker and I are music
teachers and were traveling to a con-
ference together recently. About an
hour into the trip, I pulled out a map
and completely unfolded it across the
dashboard. Its size was quite obnox-
ious.
After finding our route, I then strug-,
gled to refold it back to its original
shape. After several failed attempts, I
was convinced it wasn't possible. As
my desperation grew, my co-worker
finally pulled the car overto help. He
grabbed the map and like magic fold-
ed it perfectly into its original form.
"That's amazing" I told him, "How
did you do that?"
"1'\e had a lot of practice," he
smiled at me. "As a kid I played the
accordion!"
(Thanks to Alvin M.)

modern











trend experts offer tips for

saluting couples in style


FAMILY FEATURES
n recent years, wedding traditions have changed dramatically, and the bride and groom aren't
the only ones affected. People postponing marriage until later in life and more couples living
together before tying the knot are just a few of the recent social changes impacting today's
weddings. Gift-giving trends and pre-wedding rituals, like showers and bachelorette parties,
have also become more sophisticated and complex.
One could say that modem wedding celebrations are more reflective of reality. As one card from
American Greetings points out, today's couples have a bond that transcends any ceremony. The front
of the card, adorned in Tiffany blue simply reads, "Cherish," in silver. The inside greeting reads,
"C9ngratulations on your forever friendship and your promise of love."
Celebrating a marriage today is similar to making any relationship work. It requires understanding,
thoughtfulness and patience.


Trendy colored wrap and bags make it easy to complement any couple's taste. Fresh
new card designs allow shoppers to celebrate a wedding in style. American Greetings
and Carlton products pictured here are available in all Target card departments.


While friends and family have been influenced bh, hany,es
in today's weddings, no group has seen more ch.alienges
than the bridesmaids. Celebrating established relation~hiph
and more independent brides is a difficult utjl. To JSt
these loyal friends, here are a few suggestion fo.r hbacel-
orette party themes:
Friends and family
The traditional bachelorette party doesn't h. e 1t be so ..
traditional. One of the key elements of an; good bachelor-
ette party is the location, so choose a spot that e.er',one
will appreciate.:
An area such as an outdoor shopping center k il .all, io..
everyone to come together for a manicure or .pa trejr-
ment, go off on their own to shop and then reunite for a
casual croup dinner,
A night on the town -
For those who like to celebrate, a night on the ion n or i
wine tasting at a local winery is a perfect option Another
activity that can include everyone is a proTrci.s e dinner
You start out at a trendy location .for drinks and appeii.
zers, move to a favorite restaurant for dinner and end at
a fun little spot to enjoy dessert.
No matter what option you choose, be sure that there
is no evidence left behind the next day. One Americjn
Greetings card, perfect for any bachelorete pJrt.
guest of honor, is a reminder of this lesson
The card features a pink color scheme
and a camera on the front and reads,
"A night to remember," the inside
greeting continues, "and the pictures
to prove it."
Road trip or spa day
A growing trend is for the bridal
party to come together with the bride
for a day trip or a day at the spa to
unwind from all of the planning just
before the actual wedding. This is a
great way to be alone together as a group
one last time.

tations. This trend)

The colors of today's weddings make a statement about the bride and groom.
Guests who want to make an impression can coordinate cards and gifts with
the chosen color scheme of the wedding. *


make g

thing at the d:]hg
With many people today waiting longer.
before they marry, weddings have
begun to reflect more matured styles.
To keep up with these fashionable
weddings, guests are striving to impress
with the presentation of their gifts.
Thompson says to be creative in pre-
senting your gift, and if you are having
trouble coming up with ideas, let the
gift itself act as your inspiration:
Consider non-traditional
color combinations
Since every bride has her own style
and taste in color, guests shouldn't feel
limited by the traditional wedding
palettes. "Brides take a great deal of
time in coordinating the colors or tone
of their weddings," said Thompson. "The
colors in a wedding reflect the bride and
groom's personality, so matching your
gift wrap and accessories to their color
scheme will ensure a presentation more
aligned with their tastes and styles."
Accessorize, accessorize,
accessorize
Weddings are a fun occasion and the
gifts should reflect that. One easy way
to accentuate any gift is to embellish it
with a thoughtful or fun accessory.
"Accessorizing your gift can add a little
personality, which is perfectly in line
with modern wedding trends," said
Thompson.
One easy suggestion is to add a simple
yet elegant fabric flower as a beautifully
unexpected "bow" for the top of your
gift.
Think outside of the box ...
literally
While gorgeous paper and accessories
are always fashionable, a new trend in


Wedding shower traditions have evolved to incorporate more vibrant color schemes.


gifting is for more personalized presen-
tations that reflect the gift-giver, the
couple or the ceremony.
"Weddings today are very personalized
and guests are also getting into the
spirit," said Thompson. She suggests
using the gift itself as part of the pre-
sentation to show off your own style.
"You can actually use the gift as a


centerpiece or container to create a look
that really stands out. For example, if you
purchase magazine rack, use it to hold
the rest of'our presents, such as a cozy
blanket or other items for the couple's
living room. This will make your prepara-
tion much simpler and the result more
beautiful."
