Lawbreakers

will pay

higher bonds
By Melody Lee
Jasper News Manager
"If you
do the
crime,
you'll do
the pocket-
book."
County
Judge Son- *
ny Scaff Scaff
wants those
who break the law to know
the court is getting serious
about drugs, driving under
the influence and disobey-
ing law enforcement.
Judge Scaff revised the
bond schedule for crimes
committed in Hamilton
County, effective Aug. 27.
In some cases, the bond
;was increased three-fold,
'according to Judge Scaff.
Another change was the in-
creased bond set for repeat
offenses of driving while li-
cense suspended or re-
voked and driving under
the influence.
"I want people to know I
am not tolerating lawless-
ness. If some elect to do so,
&they shall pay a high bond
:or sit in jail until their case
as disposed of," Judge Scaff
,said. "People are tired of
,others doping, stealing,
'and buying liquor for kids.
It won't take long for the
word to get out that crime
an Hamilton County will
cost you."

Fire destroys Badcock building


By Melody Lee
For many people in Hamilton
County, Badcock was "the place"
to shop for furniture and appli-
ances. The friendly service of Bob-
by and Sonja Cooper and the staff
attracted new customers and kept
old customers. On July 5, the
Coopers dosed the doors of the
store in Jasper for the last time be-
cause of her health problems.
About 11:30 Sunday night, Sept.
2, the Jasper Fire Department re-
sponded to a call at the Badcock


building, at 507 N Hatley St. in
Jasper, according to their report.
The firefighters found the north
end of the building in flames with
heavy black smoke coming from
the eaves of the whole building.
The firefighters established ini-
tial attack lines to protect Sonja
Cooper's home and a building lo-
cated to the east of the fire, accord-
ing to the report' The Jasper Fire
Department requested mutual aid

like to thank the
Jennings Fire Department for
their help and dedication to our
community, not only in time of
need, but with community in-


volvement at all times. The Jen-
nings Fire Department burned
the piles of debris and trees that
were being piled by the clay pit;
they watered the grass seed
along the new areas of road
work by the horse barn and the
dip; and they also took the time
to fill our pool this year with
over 17 trucks of water.
In appreciation for their.com-


munity involvement and help,
the POA purchased and pre-
sented the Jennings Fire Depart-
ment with a Sawzall Hatchet,
blades and extension cords they
were in need of for rescue pur-
poses.
They also purchased a 30' hy-
draulic extension hose for use
with the Jaws of Life and rescue
equipment.

Florida is the latest state
to be added to those served
by the loan program creat-
-ed by the foundation,

through the National
Ground Water Association.
Qualified applicants can
borrow up to $8,000 at one

tem located on the proper-
ty of the home. Must meet
income and other eligibility
requirements. Be located in
a city, town, or unincorpo-
rated area with a popula-
tion of less than 50,000.
The foundation will not
underwrite a loan once a

Authorities caution Floridians


about fraudulent charities


Submitted

Attorney General Bill
McCollum and Depart-
ment of. Agriculture and
Consumer Services, Com-
missioner Charles H.
Bronson recently issued a
consumer advisory, warn-
ing consumers about the
potential for fraudulent
charities or individuals il-
legally soliciting charita-
ble donations. They ex-
pressed their concern that
in, light of the recent wide-
spread devastation caused
by Hurricane Dean, con
artists and scammers may
try to take advantage of
people's good intentions
by creating illegitimate
charities, including Inter-
net-based "organiza-
tions." The advisory cau-
tioned that emails and
websites requesting dona-
tions may appear legiti-
mate, but could be a ploy
to gain personal informa-
tion and consumers are
encouraged to verify 'the
validity of charitable or-
ganizations before mak-


ing any donations..
Florida law requires'
charities to register with
the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer
Services and provide fi-
nancial information about
income and expenditures,
according to the, Solicita-
tions of Contributions Act
under Chapter 496, Flori-
da Statutes.
Consider the following
tips when deciding
whether to donate to an-
organization:
Always make sure a
charity is registered be-
fore -donating and check
on how a charity spends
its money. Consumers
have the right to ask for
an organization's finan-
cial report and its federal
,tax identification number
that is necessary to claim
contributions as tax de-
ductions.
Don't judge an organi-
zation based on an im-
pressive sounding name.
Find out what it actually
does. Be wary of emotion-
al appeals and organiza-


tions that have only vague
plans for spending the
funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a
check payable .only to an
organization-not an indi-
vidual.
Be wary of organiza-
tions that offer to send a
"runner" to pick up dona-
tions. Reputable charities
are willing to wait for con-
tributions.
Complaints about
fraudulent charities can
be directed to either
agency's consumer' ser-
vices division. The Attor-
ney General's Office re-
ceives consumer com-
plaints through the
agency's fraud hotline is
1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-
966-7226) or through the
website at

Economic theory does not
operate in a vacuum. Insti-
tutions, such as the property
rights structure, determine
how the theory manifests it-
self. Similarly, the law of
gravity isn't repealed when
a parachutist floats gently
down to earth. The para-
chute simply affects how the
law of gravity manifests it-
self.
Failure to recognize the ef-
fect. of different property
rights structures on out-
comes leads to faulty analy-
sis. Think about several
questions. Which lake will
yield larger, more mature
fish a publicly owned or a
privately owned lake? Why


L
' 9~5-


A

MINORITY

VIEW


is it that herds of cows flour-
ished and buffalos did not?
Who will care for a house
better a renter or owner?
The answer,to each ques-
tion has to do with the prop-
erty rights .structure. In a
publicly owned lake, every-
one has the right to the fish.
In order to assert his right,
the person has to catch the
fish. This leads to overfish-
ing because the person who
tosses back an immature
fish doesn't benefit himself.
He benefits someone else
who will keep the fish. It's a
different story with a pri-
vately owned lake. The
owner needn't catch a fish in
order to assert his rights and


Economics and property rights


can let the fish mature. It's
the same principle with buf-
falo and other wildlife that's
publicly owned. Through
various rules and regula-
tions, governments, though
imperfectly, attempt to
solve this property rights
problem with licenses, fish-
ing and hunting seasons
and setting limits on catch
and size.
Private property rights
force the owner to take into
account the effect of his cur-
rent use of the property on
its future value. A home-
owner has a greater stake in
what a house is worth 10 or
20 years from now than a
renter. An owner would
more likely make sacrifices
and take the kind of care
that lengthens the usable life
of the house. But owners
have methods to make
renters share some of the in-
terests of an owner through
requiring security deposits


against damage.
There's a completely ig-
nored aspect of the effect of
restrictions on private prop-
erty rights and that's restric-
tions on profits. Pretend that
you're an owner of a firm.
There are two equally capa-
ble secretaries that you
might hire. The pretty secre-
tary demands $300 a week
while the homely secretary
is willing to work for $200. If
you hired the homely secre-
tary, your profits would be
$100 greater. But what if
there were a 50 percent prof-
it tax? The profit tax reduces
your rights to profit and re-
duces your cost of discrimi-
nating against the homely
secretary. Instead of forego-
ing $100 without the profit
tax, you'd forego only $50
by hiring the pretty secre-
tary. The more the cost of
doing something goes
down, predictably, the more
people will do of it. Wherev-


er private property rights to
profits are attenuated, we
expect more choices to be
made by non-economic fac-
tors such as race and other
physical attributes. That's
especially the case in non-
profit entities like govern-
ment and universities.
You say, "Hold it,
Williams, government and
universities have preferen-
tial hiring policies in favor
of racial minorities; so
you're wrong." No. When it
was politically expedient,
government and universi-
ties were the leaders in
racial discrimination against
racial minorities. Now that
it's politically expedient to
discriminate in favor of
racial minorities, govern-
ment and universities are in
the forefront. For .example,
in 1936, there were only
three black PhD chemists
employed by all of the white


universities in the US,
whereas 300 black chemists
alone were employed by
private industry. In govern-
ment, blacks were only one
percent of non-Postal Civil
Service workers in 1930. By
the way, where did blacks
make their entry into white
universities? If you said in
sports, the moneymaking
part of the university, go to
the head of the class.
There are numerous is-
sues and problems that are
otherwise inexplicable un-
less we take into considera-
tion the property rights
structure.

Social Security warns about potential scams


By: Clif Copeland
Social Security Administra-
tion Public Affairs Specialist

The Social Security Ad-
,ministratioh recently is-
sued a warning about sev-
eral scams that have sur-
faced throughout the
southeast. Social Security
has received many reports
about telephone calls and
home visits from people
who falsely claim to be So-


cial Security employees.
In each case, the person at-
tempted to obtain personal
information, such as a So-
cial Security or bank ac-
count number, from the
Social Security recipient.
Scam artists who identi-
fy themselves as Social Se-
curity employees have
used, a variety of ap-
proaches to obtain person-
al information. In one


case, a caller said that So-
cial Security was experi-
encing a power outage and
needed to verify personal
information. In another,
the caller posed as an em-
ployee who needed to ver-
ify the person's direct de-
posit information. In a
third scam, Social Security
recipients were told that
their monthly benefit pay-
ments were being cut be-
cause they inherited a
house from a relative, an
event that would not result
in a reduction of Social Se-
curity benefits. To help
make the fraud seem au-
thentic, the caller then
placed the person on hold
and played recordings
similar to messages used
by Social Security. When
the caller came back on the
line, the recipients were
told that proceeds from the
sale of the house would be
sent to them if delinquent
taxes were paid.
Social Security advises
you' to never provide your
Social Security number or
other personal information


over the telephone unless
you initiated the contact,
or you're confident that
the person you are giving
the information to will use
the information as you in-
tended for it to be used. If
in doubt, do not release in-
formation without first
verifying the validity of
the call.
If there is any doubt,
about someone who claims
to be a Social Security rep-
resentative, contact the
Lake City Social Security
office, located at 1086 S W
Main Boulevard, suite 101,
or call 386-755-3227 or 800-
772-1213. The US Office of
Inspector General and the
Social Security Adminis-
tration investigate all re-
ports of suspicious activity
relating to Social Security
scams. To report suspi-
cious activity relating to
Social Security, call the
OIG Hotline at 1-800-269-
0271. A public fraud re-
porting form is available
online at the OIG's web-

In spite of state budget cuts, "NFCC's
doors are wide open," says Steen


North Florida Community
College (NFCC) is deter-
mined that the prospect of re-
duced state funding will not
impact enrollment as the col-
lege prepares for a four per-
cent reduction in its operat-
ing budget.
All 28 Florida community
colleges affirmed their tradi-
tional "open door" policy in
a resolution passed by the
Council of [Community Col-
lege] Presidents earlier this
summer. 11 state universi-
ties, are responding to cuts
by freezing-freshmen enroll-
ment at state-funded levels
for the next three years.
NFCC is already taking


steps to implement a four
percent reduction. At NFCC,
this translates into $235,638.
"We are prepared to make
budget cuts that will not\
have any impact on direct in-
structional costs," said
Amelia Mulkey, chief finan-
cial officer. NFCC indicated it
will freeze hiring and stream-
line operations to account for
the revenue shortfall. The
proposed cuts will not affect
construction, remodeling or
grant-stipported programs,
which are funded through
other revenue sources..
"No current employees
will be impacted by the mea-
sures," assured Steen.

South Hamilton Elemen-
tary School started like a
whirlwind on Monday,
Aug. 20. It was literally like
a whirlwind when the
Trauma One (T-1) heli-
copter set down on SHE's
football field. You see,
Monday was also "Safety
Day."
Safety Day is sponsored
by the town of White
Springs. Officer Tracy
Capellia organized the
event, which began with a
fire drill. Approximately
five minutes later, the stu-
dents watched the T-1 land.
Representatives from the
Hamilton County Sheriff's


Office, the Hamilton Coun-
ty Alcohol and Drug Pre-
vention Coalition, the
White Springs Fire Depart-
ment were also present.
The students learned a lot
about safety and were re-
warded with treats and
school supplies. It was hot,
but it was fun.
One of the pilots told me
he was an aircraft mechan-
ic when a Sergeant Major
asked him one day, "Why
don't you go to flight
school?" The pilot said he
had never thought about it
and that he had always
thought of pilots as sort of
"special people;" he never
thought of pilots as regular
people, such as himself.


Anyway, he went to flight
school and has been flying
for 20 years. Now, he uses
that accomplishment to
save lives. This is a great
message for parents and
educators, because we nev-
er know how a simple sen-
tence, a question, or just a
word of encouragement


can change a life or lives
forever.
SHE has many new stu-
dents this year (our popu-
lation has grown from 170
to 203) and more seem to
come daily. We welcome
them and we also would
like to welcome Shirley
Hurst from Live Oak, as


our new second grade
teacher. We are proud to
have Mrs. Hurst and know
that she will be an asset to
the students and staff of
SHE.
The staff was treated to a
luncheon sponsored by
PCS on Wednesday, Aug.
15, at the Telford in White
Springs. Our thanks to Kei-
th Thornton, CEO of PCS,
White Springs, and PCS for
their interest and support
of SHE. Rob Wolfe and
Mike Williams were at the
luncheon representing PCS
and awarded SHE with a
check.
Special guests included
Harry Pennington, Super-
intendent of Hamilton


County Schools; Joyce
Shaw, Hamilton County
School Board member;
Joseph McKire, Mayor of
White Springs; Ralph
Hardwick, White Springs
Town Councilman; and
Robert Townsend, White
Springs Town Manager.
We appreciate the support
from all and we are looking
forward to an absolutely
great year! I
Upcoming events will in-
clude the SACS meeting on
Monday, Sept. 10, at. 3:30
p.m. and a PTO meeting at
5:30 p.n. in the Media Cen-
ter. Open house will also be
held on that day from 6
p.m. until 7 p.m.

White Springs







,. By Johnny Bullard
I_ '


The month of September
is upon us. We will turn
around twice and Christ-
mas will be here. It seems
only yesterday I was
putting my wreaths away,
and, in a few weeks, it will
be here again. Well, like
Scarlett O'Hara, I will have
to think about that "tomor-
row" "After all, tomor-
row is another day."
Please mark your calen-
dars for Sunday, Sept. 30,
as this is the date for
Homecoming out at Swift
Creek United Methodist
Church, north of White
Springs. Swift Creek is the
second oldest protestant
church in the state of Flori-
da. It was established in
the early 1820s. I always
enjoy attending Home-
coming services at the
church.' Tommy and Mil-
dred Pound and Butch and
Claire Smith have done an


outstanding job over the
past several years preserv-
ing this precious tradition.
Song services will begin
around 10:30. a.m. and the
morning worship' service
will begin around 11 a.m.
Dinner on the grounds will
be served directly after the
morning worship service,
It is hard to believe that
the Florida Folk Festival
will be 55 this year and
Jeanie with the Light
Brown Hair will be 56. The
Jeanie Ball will be held in
the Foster Museum on Fri-
day, Oct. 5, beginning at 8
p.m. The Ball is open to the
public and dress, is semi-
formal. The public audi-
tions are held on Saturday,
Oct. 6, on the east veranda
of the Museum Building
beginning at 10 a.m. This is
an outstanding musical
event sponsored by the
Florida Federation of Mu-


sic Clubs. If you've never
attended this event,
you've missed one of the
most beautiful events in
our area. The dresses
worn by the contestants
are worth attending this
event and the beautiful
voices are added "icing"
on the cake. Make your
plans to attend.
Walter and Merri
McKenzie always do such
a marvelous job decorating
their historic home in sea-
sonal style. I appreciate
Walter and Merri sharing
their decorations with all
of us in the area. They are
old, cherished friends and
they love White Springs. I
enjoy seeing Merri out
walking the two dogs, who
don't know that they are
dogs, Haggis and Rarebit. I
know Merri continues en-
joying her work at the
Culinary Arts Department
of the Suwannee-Hamilton
Technical School where
she does an outstanding
job. Walter stays busy, now
that he is retired with the
"honey do" list. I know
Merri keeps him hopping.
My cousin Rhett Bullard
and I shared a nice visit
with our good friends,
Imogene Scippio Bullock
and Florine Dye Roberts,


last week. Rhett and I were
out riding the roads and
saw the lights on in Imo-
gene's shop and, so we
stopped. They were busy
working away on various
projects, and we interrupt-
ed them and had a "big
time" visiting for an hour
or so. Time spent with
good friends is always a
blessing. I am thankful to
have these two wonderful,
old friends, and I know
that Rhett feels the same.
This is part of the reason
we love living "way
down upon 'the Suwannee
River."
Rhett Bullard attended
the wedding and reception
of a good friend from law
school over the Labor Day
weekend. The event was
held at the Ocho Rios Re-
sort in Jamaica.
I had dinner on Saturday
evening, Sept. 1, with some
good friends, over at the
111 Gill in Madison. This is
a great restaurant and, if
you haven't been there, it
is worth the trip. I have en-
joyed lunching and dining
at this restaurant on many
occasions.
Janet Moses has a great
shop over in" Madison and,
as much as I enjoy visiting
it, I am a little heart sick
that she no longer has a
shop in White Springs.


Janet is a wonderful and
talented artist, and she
gave so much to this com-
munity. I wish her all the
luck in the world. I hope,
one day, she will come
home.
Bobby and Avis Bullard,
BR and Sybil Sistrunk, and
Ray and Cindy Waters, all
enjoyed cruising the
Caribbean over Labor Day
weekend. These folks were
on a cruise that featured
some of the most outstand-
ing Elvis impersonators in
the nation. I know that
Avis, Sybil and Cindy are
all big Elvis fans, and I
know everyone had a fan-
tastic time.
A visit with Stephen Fos-
ter Park Manager Ben Fau-
re recently was a very nice
one. The road behind Nelly
Biy's Kitchen has been
paved and this is very nice
for those who cater events
at Nelly Bly's and for oth-
ers Ben and his staff have
worked very hard to make
many capital improve-
ments at the park, :and it
looks great.
I commend the Chamber
of Commerce of Hamilton
County for their continued
proactive approach. Don't
give up, folks. Remember
"Rome was not built in a
day." I also commend
those, who in the past,


worked hard for the
Chamber including Mari-
on Turner, Anne Hall,
Shirley Smith and many
others.
I am sorry to hear that
Nancy Oliver, who has
worked at the Courthouse
and has worn many hats, is
leaving our county. Nancy
has been a "bright spot"
for many of us at the cour-
thouse, and we are sorry to
see her go. She' is a profes-
sional and a "lady." Our
best wishes go out to her.
We will miss you, Nancy.
Please remember the fol-
lowing in prayer: JM Mor-
gan, Billie Payne, Dorothy
Hill, Virginia Daniel, Frank
McPherson, Ella Taylor,

Padgett, Gladys "Granny"

Nature myths, debunked


by Terry Krautwurst


"If you touch a toad,
you'll get warts."
Of course we all know
it's not true. But have you


ever picked up a toad with-
out the wart story coming
to mind? That's the trouble
with long-held myths; they
.tend to persist despite
common sense or scientific
knowledge to the contrary.
OK, so those lumps on a
toad's body do look a lot
like warts. And that liquid
that oozes from the toad's
skin if you grasp it too
firmly ... eck. Actually,
that liquid is a poison, and
it does come from the
toad's warty skin and from
the two largest lumps -
called parotoid glands lo-
cated just behind the am-
phibian's eyes. But the tox-
in is merely a defense
mechanism, emitted by the
glands only under
outside pres-
Ssure such


as that from a would-be
toad-eater's unsuspecting
mouth. Most animals im-
mediately spit toads out,
though hawks and snakes
gobble them with apparent
impunity. Raccoons and
skunks eat toads after bat-
ting them around on the
ground to release and rub
off the poison. Viruses not
toad secretions cause
warts. The toxin can, how-
ever, cause a local burning
irritation if you handle a
toad and then touch your
eyes or mouth. That's why
you should always wash
your hands after holding a
toad.

Okefenokee Swamp waters



hide more than wildlife


The Okefenokee Swamp
relies on rain fall and the as-
sociated water run-off from
the surrounding uplands to
replenish itself. Yet, low-wa-
ter levels are part the Oke-
fenokee Swamp's life cycle.
Periods of drought have cy-
cled through this area since
recorded time, and the di-
verse wildlife populations,
which call the Okefenokee
home, have many ways to
cope with it.
When water levels in the
swamp drop, animals such
as the American Alligator
will tend to concentrate in
areas where there is more
water, and this makes for ex-
citing wildlife observation.
Lower water also provides a
glimpse of another interest-
ing side of the Okefenokee
Swamp its cultural past.
There has been human ac-
tivity in and around the
Okefenokee Swamp for
hundreds of years. Older
Charlton County residents
can remember the Indian
burial mounds and midden
sites that used to dot the
lands around the Okefeno-
kee National Wildlife
Refuge. Sadly, many of these
mounds and midden sites
were plowed under when
these lands were converted
to the cultivation of com-
mercial pine. The remains of
some of Charlton County's
earliest settler homesteads
still linger here and there

as more and more lands are
being sold for development,
important historic sites are
at risk of being lost forever.
Yet, not all is completely
lost! At the Okefenokee
NWR, nature has a way of
reminding us from time to
time of its rich cultural past.
When water levels drop, fas-
cinating relics of the past can
be seen with the trained eye.
Scattered here and there
throughout the swamp are
remains of the extensive nar-
row-gage railroad system,
which was used to transport
harvested timber out of the
swamp during the early
1900's. Most of these are
piles of old. metal rails
and / or cross-ties, which
were abandoned in the
swamp shortly after the log-
ging operations ceased in
the late 1920s. Visitors al-
most never see them be-
cause they are submerged
under the water most of the
time, but receding water lev-
els periodically expose them.
Another unique item that
can be seen during low wa-
ter is the remains of one of
the barges used for steam
dredging operations in the
late 1800's. This barge was
salvaged by work. crews
when it was no longer need-
ed and left to languish in the
swamp for many years.
Time and the elements took
their toll, eventually causing

ters.
All of these relics are con-
sidered artifacts by the US
Fish and Wildlife Service
and as such are protected by
Federal Law. It is illegal to
disturb them. Most of the
time, these artifacts have lit-
tle or no dollar-value at all,
they are merely scrap refuse
abandoned in the swamp by
an earlier generation. Yet,
every artifact in the Oke-
fenokee NWR is important
to our understanding of the
swamp's past as a whole.
We study them, record
them, and learn from them,
but like the .wildlife, we
must leave them where they
occur. Time and nature will.
preserve them for many
generations to come.
After many months of
drought, -normal winter
rainfall is slowly returning
to the region again and wa-
ter levels throughout the
Okefenokee Swamp are be-
ginning to rise. As rising wa-
ter provides better foraging
habitat, the congregations of
wildlife now visible will
vanish back into the far
reaches of the swamp. Like
the American Alligator,
many of the exposed arti-
facts will also disappear be-

ty short since we're just
getting back into the swing
of things. With that said, I
hope you enjoy. /
I'd like to start off by
welcoming teachers, staff,
parents, and last but not
least, students, back to
school. It's been a long, fun,
hot summer, and now it's
time for everyone to get
their heads back in the
books. Hamilton County
High School has returned
with some new and old
faces; for the veteran.staff
members, welcome back
and for the rookie staff, we
hope you enjoy our school
and we are glad to have
you. This year HCHS is cel-
ebrating its success, with
its students, faculty, and
community supporters .
The new school year
should give everybody a
fresh and clean start, to be
able to not only excel in
school, but in life.
On Friday, Aug. 24,, un-
der the HCHS stadium
lights, the Trojans faced
Mayo in the classic Jam-
boree. After Mayo took the ,
lead in the end of the sec-
ond quarter, they went on
to take the victory 0-24
against the Trojans. Al-
though, the Trojans were
defeated it was obvious
they never gave up. Coach-
ing the Mighty Trojans this
year is returning Head
Coach Corey Green. We
also have some new coach-
es we would like to wel-
come to the Trojan game. I
wish all the Trojan football
teams the best for a, great
season and I encourage
everyone to come out and
support the Trojans!
Well, that's all for this
week's edition of the "Tro-
jan News," hope you en-
joyed and I wish you all a
great weekend. We will be
back next week with a full
tank of topics and updates.
Once again I'm Jonathan,
and until next time,

Crack the code: Learn how to read food labels


By Julie Kirkwood
CNHI News Service
NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.
As dietitian Lynn O'Reilly
,wrapped up her nutrition tour
recently at Farmer Brown's a
small specialty grocery store
in Middleton, Mass. mur-
murs and hushed comments
passed among the dozen
-women gathered around her.
The tour ended with soups,
.which store employees make
fresh with a low-sodium base
and no artificial ingredients.
Even nutritious soups like
ihese, though, have a major
drawback, O'Reilly said: They
tend to be salty. Low-sodium


broth is good, she said, but it's
not the same as no sodium.
Soups almost always contain
salt. "If there was one that was
unsalted, you wouldn't want
it," O'Reilly said. This
prompted one woman to whis-
per to her friend, with a laugh,
that she wasn't sure that
there's any food that is good to
eat. That feeling seemed to be
mutual, even among these
women who are so devoted to
understanding food labels that
they spent an hour touring the
store with a dietitian. There's
just too much to think about,
Carole Goterch of Lawrence
said after taking the tour. Most


people know some basic nutri-
tion principles, she said, but
when you dig into the details
and try to pay attention to ex-
actly what you're eating, it
gets complicated. "I think, un-
fortunately, it's a full-time
job," Goterch said. "Nobody
has time to make it a full-time
job." One woman on the tour
said she spends three hours in
the grocery store reading la-
bels and trying to figure out
what to buy. Her son thinks
it's ridiculous, she said, but
she doesn't have a choice. She
has diabetes and her medica-
tions aren't working, so she
has to pay attention to what


Dietitian Lynn O'Reilly, right, points out things on the nutrition label to Dolores Driscoll while lead-
ing a group through Farmer Brown's Market showing what to look for when shopping for healthy
foods. Wednesday, July 25, 2007 Roger Darrigrand/Eagle-Tribune


she eats. Dolores Driscoll of
Danvers reads labels because
she's managing medical prob-
lems, too. She said she has
taken these dietitian-led gro-
cery store tours four or five
times and she still doesn't feel
confident about her ability to
buy the right foods. At this
particular tour, Driscoll said
she asked O'Reilly about the
fat content of ground beef
that's labeled "90 percent
lean." Driscoll thought that
was pretty good, but O'Reilly
pointed out on the label that
half the calories still come
from fat. In general, no more
than a third of a person's daily
calories should come from fat.
"You have to do this program
several times before you un-
derstand everything," Driscoll
said. "You just keep trying to
get it right." O'Reilly doesn't
disagree that choosing health-
ful foods is hard at first. But it
does get easier once you find
foods that you like and know
are nutritious, she said. "Once
they go through the process of
analyzing what they eat on a
regular basis, they really don't
have to go through this again,"
she said. That's why O'Reilly
does these grocery store tours
a couple of times a year, usu-
ally one in Gloucester and one
in Danvers. The recent tour in
Middleton was a special ap-
pearance, organized by Bever-
ly Hospital. "The more edu-
cated you are, the more confi-
dent you can be about taking
good care of yourself,"
O'Reilly said. "It's a very
goodfeeling to know that the
way you're eating is a very
healthy way to eat." Julie
Kirkwood writes for The Ea-
gle-Tribune of North Andover,
Mass.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith
For the last couple of weeks we have been
blessed with several more adoptions than usu-
al. A couple of our strays were placed with
"rescue" organizations that deal with specific
breeds, and several we have featured in the last
two articles also found good homes.
,We still have a large variety of dogs and pup-
pies, cats and kittens, ready to be adopted.
There are several Chihuahua-mix adult dogs
needing homes, some medium-sized dogs with
beautiful eyes and dispositions to match, large
dogs that will make good yard pets, and sever-
al small dogs that would be good inside, or


companion, pets.
We had intended to feature our shelter secre-
tary this week, but time got away from us be-
fore we could get all the information together,
so we'll feature her next week.
As of this writing, our volunteer .meetings
have been stepped up as we prepare for our sec-
ond Expo to be held Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 3-
4 at Suwannee County Coliseum in Live Oak.
We are expecting it to be even bigger than last
year, and anticipate a grand turnout from you,
the citizens of Suwannee County in support of
our county animal shelter. If you are interested
in attending our volunteer meetings, please call

Did you know we now have a Web site? You
can find us by going to www.suwan-
neecountyaninmalshelter.org. In addition to pic-
tures of some of the animals at our 'shelter,
there is also a volunteer sign-up form that you
can print and fill out and submit to us. We try
to update the photos as often as possible, but if
one of ihem touches your heart and you find.
that it has already found a new home, there will
always be plenty more to choose from. You do
not have to go to the "search web" line to type
in the website address ... go to the'very top of
your opening "home page" and type it in that
very first space. It will bring up our website
right away.
Little by little we are gaining ground in our
expansion' project, but we still need the moral
and financial support of the Suwannee County
community. Please consider sending in your
donation to this desperately needed expansion
now. Every dollar helps!


"YEAH! DOUBLE

PINK KNOCK OU

ROSES ARE HER]
Wow! The easiest rose in the world
to grow is now in with double pink
blossoms! We also have red
doubles but if pink is your color
wait no more! Stop by today our
selection is fantastic!

TROPICAL
TRADITIONS!
Start a tradition that's good for you!
Adding tropical houseplants to your home
lowers your blood pressure, cleans the air
and gives you a beautiful decorator's touch!
Gorgeous, fresh houseplants are now in!


The number of strays being reported and
turned in continues to grow on a daily basis.
We are filled to overflowing, and have been for'
many, many months. God willing, and with
your help, we'll be able to correct that situation
very soon with this expansion.
It is the humane and sensible responsibility
of all pet owners to have their pet spayed or
neutered, especially if that pet is kept outside.
iEvery animal that we adopt out is now spayed
or neutered at the time of adoption. If you need
help with this expense, there is a program that
may help you. Ask your vet clinic about this
program,, called "North Florida'Paws." You can
also find out more about this program by going
to their Web site at.www.northfloridapaws.org
or email them at nfpa\ s(@ bellsouth.net.
And don't forget to come bN our shelter at
11150 144th Street, McAlpin, just off US 129
where the big county landfill is located. Watch
for our sign right next to the big county landfill
sign. For more information, please call 386-

We Take



Health to


Your



Heart


Enjoy Eating While Getting Healthier


Many adults are aware that high cholesterol is one
of the primary risk factors for coronary heart disease
(CHD). For some people, the thought of lowering
cholesterol is seen as the end of the line for enjoying
good food. However, the American Heart
Association (AHA) notes that you can still enjoy the
best your favorite restaurants have to offer while
simultaneously lowering your cholesterol.
Steakhouses: Among the most popular style of
restaurants throughout the country, steakhouses
don't need to be avoided by those looking for
healthier food options. A few simple changes in
what you order can do the job. For example, instead
of ordering thick cuts such as porterhouse or T-bone,
order leaner cuts such as london broil, filet mignon,
or tenderloin. As for side orders, substitute fried or
scalloped potatoes with a baked potato or even rice
and ask for your vegetables to be steamed and not
fried and you have a delicious and much healthier
meal in front of you.
Mexican: Few menus offer more delicious foods
than those at Mexican restaurants. Fortunately, those
menus typically offer healthy choices you might not
be aware of. Initially, before sitting down, request
that no fried tortilla chips be brought to the table.
Most Mexican restaurants offer large entrees to


begin with, so you won't be going hungry anyway. For
your main course, ask to replace flour tortillas with corn
tortillas, and choose grilled chicken or fish over carnitas
or chorizo. Another popular but unhealthy ingredient in
many Mexican dishes is sour cream. Replace sour cream
with healthier choices such as salsa, cilantro or pico de
gallo.
Italian: Italian cuisine is among the most delicious in
the world, making Italian restaurants some of the most
popular. While it's tempting to let loose and eat whatever
you'd like, you can still enjoy a great Italian meal without
risking a rise in your cholesterol levels. Rather than
cheese- or meat-filled dishes, choose pasta primavera with
fresh vegetables or pasta with white or red clam sauce.
Exchange a favorite parmigiana (floured, fried and baked
with cheese) dish with a marsala (sauce made with wine)
dish.
Chinese: A big part of making Chinese dishes healthier
is asking for main courses to be broiled, boiled or steamed
instead of fried. Also, egg rolls are popular appetizers at
many Chinese restaurants. Unfortunately, egg rolls are not
very healthy. Replace egg rolls or fried wontons with
steamed dumplings.
To learn more about developing healthy eating habits,
visit the AHA Web site at www.americanheart.org.

FRUIT


By Pam Campbell
j id you know that we as Christians
are supposed to bear fruit? What
kind of Fruit tree are you? Do you
bear lots of fruit everyday or is
your tree sometimes a bit dormant? Is your fruit
good fruit or is it more on the evil side? God's
word tells us in Matthew 7:16-20 "Ye shall know
them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good
tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring
forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth
good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
When other people look at you can they tell that
you are a Christian? People that you have never
met before, will they know that you are a Chris-
tian? I don't mean by the way you dress, or the
Christian shirt or jewelry that you wear, will they
be able to tell that you are a Christian by the fruit
that you bear? Jesus tells us that when people
look at us they should see the good fruits, the
Fruit of the Spirit.
In the Bible, we look at the book of Galatians
to find out about the Fruit of the Spirit. Gala-
tians: 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there
is no law." Fruit trees grow their fruit at certain
times of the year, and they grow in different cli-
mates. The Christian is to bear all of the Fruits
of the Spirit all the time, not just at certain times
or in certain places, such as church. Ask your-
self this, when you are in a line at the store and
it is taking too long, and you are running late,
can the cashier and others around you still see
the Fruit of the Spirit, the good fruit? Love, Joy,
peace, how about patience? I know that we all
get frustrated, maybe we get mad, things don't
always go the way we want them to, but really
we must learn to live as the tree bearing good
fruit all the time. Your life may be the only way
that someone will find Jesus, the only hope for
their salvation. You see many people won't go
to Church, or read the Bible, but they will watch
the lives of Christians to see if they really have
something different, something good, the hope
that they are searching for. They are not looking
for people walking around with a sign around
their neck that says they are a Christian, they

are looking for a Christian that has the Fruit of
the Spirit in every area of their lives. Jesus
wants us to have the good fruit, not the evil
fruit.
Again I ask you what kind of fruit tree are
you? Are you the kind that is full of thorns and
thistles, or dormant and not doing anything or
are you truly a Christian bearing the good Fruit
of the Spirit?
- Let's take a look at what the Fruits of the Spir-
it really are. The first one is Love, love means
to have a strong affection for another, love for
someone or to hold dear, to cherish. Do we have
that kind of love for others? Do we show God's
love, do we cherish his people? Love is action,
it is showing that you love someone by the
things that you say and that you do. I Corinthi-
ans 13:13 says "And now abide faith, hope,
love, these three; but the greatest of these is
love." Love is the most important fruit of all.
The next fruit of the Spirit is Joy. Joy means a
state of happiness and to experience great plea-
sure or delight, to rejoice. Do you have joy?
When things go wrong, when your plans don't
turn out, or if you are sick, do you still have joy?
All the things that happen to us are temporary,
but our salvation is eternal, when we know Je-
sus. Real joy comes from knowing Jesus.
Peace is the next fruit of the Spirit. Peace is
something everyone seems to be looking for.
Peace means harmony in personal relations, a
state of quiet and security, freedom from upset-
ting thoughts and worry. Are there times that you
are afraid, when things seem to fall apart and you
don't know what to do? You can choose to let Je-
sus take whatever kind of fear or worry that you
may have. You can choose to let God's peace be
in your heart and mind. Others will be able to see
that peace, when you remain calm during a time
when others may have fear.
Longsuffering is the next fruit of the Spirit. Ac-
cording to the Merriam Webster dictionary the
term Longsuffering means "patiently enduring
lasting offense or hardship." If you take the word
apart you find the words long and suffering.
Sometimes we may suffer a long time because of
another person. Longsuffering is having patience
even when someone else treats us wrong. If we
don't' loose our temper, if we are patient with
others they will see Jesus in our lives.
Gentleness means to be gentle. God does not
want us to argue, or be angry with someone even

if they did something we did not like, he wants
us to treat others with the same gentleness that he
has for us.
Goodness means to love what is right and hate
what is wrong. If you see someone mistreating
someone just because they dress differently or
don't look the same, you know that is wrong. We
hate what they are doing, but we don't hate them.
We need to show them by our actions God's
goodness.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God. To
have faith we believe that what God says is true,
we believe that when we pray God will answer
our prayer. Others may have faith in us that we
will keep our word, if we promised to do some-
thing, they have faith that we will be faithful and
do what we promised. We should always be
someone that others can depend on.
The next Fruit of the Spirit is one that many
people seem to have forgotten in the world to-
day, Meekness. Meekness is another word for
humility. To be meek does not mean to be weak,
but to be humble. We are to be like Jesus, to
strive to be humble, not to be too proud, to put
others first.
Now we are to Temperance, the last of the
fruits of the Spirit. To have temperance means to
have self control. In every area of our lives we
should have self control, in our emotions, with
our temper, in our eating, or watching TV, in our
conversations, in every part of our lives every
day we should exercise self control.
The fruits of the Spirit our given to us by God
to show us how to live and have Jesus guiding
our life. When we learn to live by the fruits of the
Spirit, others will see Jesus in our lives and will
decide to follow him.,
There is a great song that many of you may
know called "Can the World See Jesus in You?"
Think about it can the people that you meet in
the store, on the street, on the job, your family,
your neighbors, your friends, everyone you
come in contact with see Jesus in your life, in the
things that you say, and the things that you do?
We all need to take a look at our lives from
time to time and make sure that we are truly liv-
ing by the Fruits of the Spirit. So how is your
fruit tree doing today? Are you bearing good
fruit, the Fruit of the Spirit? Take time today to
pray and ask the Lord to help you bear the fruits
of the Spirit in your life. Let others see Jesus in
you.

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

FRUIT


By Pam Campbell
Did yon know that a Christian is supposed to bear fruit? God's word tells
us in Matthew 7:16 "Ye shall know them by their fruits."
What kind of fruit tree are you? When other'people look at you can they
tell that you are a Christian? People that you have never met before, will
they know that you are a Christian? I don't mean by the way you dress, or
the Christian t shirt or jewelry that you wear. Will they be able to tell that
you are a Christian by the fruit that you bear? Jesus tells us that when peo-
ple look at us they should see the good fruits, the Fruit of the Spirit.
I n the Bible, we find of the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians: 5:22-23 "But
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, good-
ness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Fruit trees
grow their fruit at certain times of the year, and they grow in different
places. A Christian is to bear all of the Fruits of the Spirit all the time, not
just at church.
What are the Fruits of the Spirit? The first one is Love. Love is showing
that you love someone by the things that you say and that you do. Love is
the most important fruit of all.
The next fruit of the Spirit is Joy. Joy means happiness. Do you have joy?
When things go wrong, when your plans don't turn out, or if you are sick,
do you still have joy? Real joy comes from knowing Jesus.
Peace is the next fruit of the Spirit. Are there times that you are afraid,
when things go wrong and you don't know what to? You can choose to let
God's peace fill you.
Longsuffering is the next fruit of the Spirit. If you take the word apart you
find the words long and suffering. Longsuffering is having patience even
when someone else treats us wrong. If we are patient with others they will
see Jesus in our lives.
Gentleness means to be gentle. God does not want us to argue, or be an-
gry with someone even if they did something we did not like. He wants us
to treat others with the same gentleness that he has for us.
Goodness means to love what is right and hate what is wrong. If you see
someone being mean to someone just because they don't look the same, you
know that is wrong. We need to show them by our actions God's goodness.
Faith means we believe that what God says is true, we believe that when
we pray God will answer our prayer. Others may have faith in us that if we
promised to do something, we will do what we promised.
Meekness is another word for humility. To be meek does not mean to be
weak, but to be humble. We are to be like Jesus, we should not brag about
ourselves.
Temperance, the last of the fruit of the Spirit. Temperance means to have
self control. That means we need to be careful not to lose our temper, to use
self control about how much TV we watch, or how much we eat.
When we learn to live by the fruits of the Spirit, others will see Jesus in
our lives and will decide to follow him.
There is a song called "Can the World See Jesus in You?" Think about it
can the people at school, in the store, your family, your neighbors, your
friends see Jesus in your life, in the things that you say, and the things that
you do?
So kids, how is your fruit tree doing today? Are you bearing good fruit,,
the Fruit of the Spirit? Take time to pray and ask Jesus to help you bear the
fruits of the Spirit in your life. Let others see Jesus in you.

Dear Classified Guys,
I love shopping the classified, but I
have to admit, I hate to drive. While
most people I know commute 20
miles to work, I drive only two miles.
The grocery store is only one mile
away and all my relatives live within
three miles. I know I'm spoiled. So
when I read the classified, I look for
deals that are right around the cor-
ner. When they show up in the news-
paper, I'm the first one there to
snatch them up. But lately, reading
the ads isn't as easy as it used to be.
Before, I could tell which town peo-
ple lived in by the area code and the
three-digit exchange. Nowadays, I
see people using cell phone num-
bers and exchanges that I don't rec-
ognize. I can't tell if they live in town
or 20 miles away. I don't want
to drive that far. I might
actually have to buy gas! -
Is there any way to tell what
town people are from using
their cell phone number? j.
Cash: For the few miles you drive
every day, you could probably ride a
-bicycle. That would definitely save
you from buying gas.
Carry: With so many cell phone
users today, there are more telephone


ME





W A




Duane "Cash" Holze ,
& Todd "Carry" Holze M


numbers than ever. New exchanges
have been added to many areas around
the country to keep up with the
demand. That is the trend you are
noticing in the ads.
Cash: Fortunately, those who adver-
tise in the classified tend to be local or
within the newspaper's circulation. The
new exchanges you are seeing may
simply be new numbers for the same
towns. To find out which area they
cover, check your local telephone book
or simply search online for a list of
"telephone exchanges".
Carry: It is also becoming popular


for people to use their cell phone num-
bers in their ads. Many people never let
their cell phone leave their side. For us
classified shoppers, that's a great bene-
fit. It's easier to talk with the sellers
directly instead of leaving a voicemail.
Cash: When it comes to cell phone
numbers, you'll find that most people
have one with a local area code and
exchange, It doesn't guarantee that they
will be less than two miles from your
house, but they should be fairly local.
Carry: And look at the bright side. If
you do have to drive more than two
miles, it's likely you'll pass a gas station.


Movie Phone
The telephone numbers 555-0100
through 555-0199 are reserved for fic-
tional use, like in TV shows, movies,
and advertisements. However in the
2003 film, "Bruce Almighty", makers
opted to use a real telephone number
minus the area code. Since the film
was about a guy who talks to God,
those around the country who had
matching telephone numbers were
inundated with callers asking to speak
with God. Due to the reaction, the
number was later edited to "555-0123"
for the TV and DVD versions.
Cell-dom Behaving
No device has permeated the lifestyle
of so many as the cell phone. It has
outpaced the sales of all other electronic
media. In the United States alone, there
are over 236 million subscribers to cel-
lular service, a tremendous growth
from the 4.3 million in 1990. With so
many users, poor cell phone behavior
has become one of the most common
complaints. In a recent study, 57% of
those surveyed have experienced people
in public who are swearing or exces-
sively loud on a cell phone.

Although my.mornm is in her seven-'i
ties, she's been trying to keep up to -
date on technology with her grand-
kids. Despite her attempts, the lingo
continues to elude her.
For instance, she still thinks my -
daughter has an "NP-Free" play er
and that iTunes is a new 'stle of
music on the radio.
Last week when we were over for
dinner, she saw my 17-year-old son
running around frantic looking for
something When she stopped him
and asked what \%as strong., mn son
told her. "I can't believe it. Grandma.'
i think I lost my Blackberr "

exercise extreme caution. While generators are a

for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:

By Kristen Grieco
CNHI News Service

T he new owners of
Seabome will occupy
two homes on their
own private peninsula and
skip the 10-year town waiting
list for a mooring because the
oceanfront estate comes with
a fully licensed deep-water
dock all for the record price
of $11 million. _The price
may sound high, but it's a
bargain compared to what the
property was listed for in
2004: $17.75 million. Other
luxury homes in this
exclusive seaside town are
also being offered at reduced,
if multi-million-dollar prices
as even normally immune


high-end home sales are
affected by the tight real
estate market. Seahome, at 16
and 18B Boardman Ave., was
sold earlier this month to
Mark and Becky Levin by
Wendy Bolland and Wendy
Slater.
The two homes on the
property the main residence
and the smaller "Tea House" -
sit on about 41/2 acres and
have a combined totalof 32
rooms and 14,533 square feet
of living space. Mark Levin,
56, is the former chief
executive officer and a
founder of Cambridge-based
Millennium Pharmaceuticals,
which develops and markets
anti-cancer and other drugs.
Becky Levin is the founder,


chairwoman and chief
executive officer of Boston-
based Levin and Co., an
executive search firm that
specializes in recruiting for
life science and venture
capital companies. Melissa
Lindberg, director of
marketing at the MLS
Property Information
Network, which tracks home
sales, said the sale price of
Seahorne is the highest
single-family price ever
recorded for the North Shore
by the Multiple Listing
Service.
The Levins are no strangers
to the luxury market. After
relocating from California
and purchasing a Boston
condominium in 1992, they


bought a historic 33-room
mansion in Middleton, R.I.,
near Newport, in 2000. Becky
Levin declined to discuss the
purchase of Seahome or the
couple's plans for the estate
after initially agreeing to a
telephone interview. "She's
very happy with her decision
to move to Manchester but
would prefer to keep the
details of her personal sale
prfiiit,"'said Barbara
Vaughn, a representative for
Becky Levin. The couple is
known for furnishing their
homes with extravagant
amenities. A llama, two
peacocks and nine African
sika deer were acquired for
the grounds of the Levins'
Rhode Island mansion, a 2001


Business Week story on Mark
Levin noted. The couple spent
$750,000 on a grandfather
clock, two vases and two
commodes for their homes in
Boston and Rhode Island
after "Mrs. Levin directed
(her interior designer) to
travel around the United
States and Europe to locate
'outrageous' antiques for
purchase," according to
documents in a civil suit.
The suit was filed by the
Levins against the dealer who
sold the antiques, claiming
the goods were not as
advertised. The Levins lost
but have appealed. Prices
reduced Three years ago, the
Times reported skyrocketing
oceanfront home prices in


Manchester. Harborwatch, at
4 and 5 Norton's Point Road,
was listed for $12.6 million
and the Wyck Estate at 1
Smith's Point Road was on
the market for $23.5 million.
Despite predictions of record-
breaking sales for the town
from real estate agents,
buyers never surfaced at those
prices.
"Normally, market
conditions do not affect the
higher end," said Joe Velez,
owner of VCM Realty in
Manchester. "But this time,
they have because subprime
is spilling over into
everything." Rising rates of
defaults on subprime loans,

which are mortgages given to
people with poor credit, have
caused some mortgage
lenders to file for bankruptcy
and have been blamed for
declining real estate and stock
markets, among other things.
Lanse Robb, a LandVest
principal and real estate agent
who works with many
corporate executives, said
high-end buyers usually don't
depend on subprime loans.
But their cash is often tied up
in investments that are
affected by the real estate and
stock markets, influencing the
price they can pay, he said.
It's not that luxury homes
aren't moving in Manchester
and across the state.


Craftmatic si


According to the town's
principal assessor, Ginny
Noyes Thompson, waterfront
homes are continuing to sell
at slightly above their
assessed values. Seahome, for
example, is assessed at $9.39
million.
The number of waterfront
property sales in Manchester
is on the upswing, Thompson
said, with a dozen waterfront
homes selling in the last two
years at prices ranging from
$2.7 million to $10.5 million.
"A lot of waterfront stuff is
selling and it's been going for
good money," said
'Thompson. "We've had quite
a few big sales." Luxury

agreement; pays $100,000

consumer restitution


Submitted
A national company market-
ing electrically adjustable beds
must waterr the sales practices
used to conduct its business in
Florida under a settlement an-
nounced today by Attorney
General Bill McCollum. Craft-
matic Organization, Inc., a
multi-million dollar business
with operations and distribu-
tors throughout the United
States, the United Kingdom
and the Republic of Ireland,
must also pay $100,000 in
consumer restitution to Florid-
ians who were pressured into
buying beds they did not want
or who were otherwise de-
ceived by the company's sales
tactics.
"Salespeople should never
be permitted to harass elderly
Floridians, especially when
* consumers are made to feel as
though the only way to evict
the salespersons from their
homes would be to purchase
.these beds," said Attorney
General McCollum. "This set-
tlement will not only provide
for much-needed business re-
form, but will also provide fi-
nancial support to a program
that exists to protect seniors
from these types of character-
istically unfair practices."
The Attorney General's Eco-
nomic Crimes Division has
been investigating the compa-
ny since 2004, examining alle-
gations that the company's
salespeople frequently employ
high pressure sales tactics. to
compel senior citizens to pur-
chase the costly adjustable
beds. Craftmatic has also re-
peatedly claimed that the beds
will resolve consumers' med-
ical problems, although these
claims have not been fully
substantiated by authorities.
Throughout the course of
the investigation, the Attorney
General's Office received
more than 60 complaints,
many from elderly Floridians
who felt they had been pres-
sured into buying beds they
did not want and could not af-
ford. Attorneys with the Eco-
nomic Crimes Division were
able to facilitate consumer
restitution or other remedies,
often providing consumers
with a full refund and removal
of the unnecessary equipment.
One consumer, an elderly
Naples woman, contacted the


Attorney General's Office
through a member of the me-
dia, claiming that she had not
onl\ been persuaded toi but the
expensive bed, but that the
salespeople took her old bed
out of her house to make room
for the newer model. After re-
laying the woman's complaint
to the company, the Attorney
General's Office was able to
secure a refund and the com-
pany provided for the purchase
of a new bed.
Under the agreement, the
company will make'substan-
tial reforms of business prac-
tices used in Florida. It will no
longer be permitted to repre-
sent to consumers that the
Craftmatic beds provide any
specific therapeutic benefit.
The salespeople must refrain
from engaging in high pres-
sure sales tactics and must ap-
ply limitations to their pro-
longed sales pitches and
demonstrations conducted in
consumers' bedrooms. The
company must also be respon-
sible for removing any Craft-
matic beds from the home of
any previous complainants
who wish to have the beds re-
moved from their homes 'and
provide for the acquisition of a
new bed if the consumer's pre-
vious bed was removed to
make way for the Craftmatic
bed.
In addition to the consumer
restitution and the changes to
the company's marketing prac-
tices, Craftmatic will pay
$20,000 to the Seniors vs.
Crime Program. This non-
profit organization helps pre-
vent the victimization of elder-
ly Floridians through educa-
tional efforts and a creative
peer-to-peer approach. Senior
citizen volunteers known as
Senior Sleuths assist the Attor-
ney General and law enforce-
ment by acting as their com-
munities' eyes and ears to re-
port new scams or unethical
sales tactics and by participat-
ing in undercover investiga-
tions of unfair or illegal busi-
ness practices. More than
2,800 Senior Sleuths staff lo-
cations throughout Florida
where complainants may
come in and discuss their
problem with the sleuths.

the state, according to
Jonathan Radford, who
researches the luxury real
estate market and brokered
the Seahome sale.
So far in 2007, more than
260 Massachusetts homes
have sold for $1 million or
more, up more than 10
percent from the same time
last year, he said.
According to Radford's
statistics, excluding sales on

Martha's Vineyard and
Nantucket, at least five sales
have topped $10 million. The
most recent real estate
newsmaker was last week's
sale of Los Angeles Dodgers
owner Frank McCourt's.
Brookline home to Red Sox
owner John Henry for $16
million. That estate was on
the market for $22 million
several years ago, according
to the Boston Herald. In
Manchester, Harborwatch
sold about six months ago for
$10.5 million after several
years on the market at $12.6
million.
The estate was assessed at
slightly more than $9.5
million. The Wyck Estate


remains for sale. Robb said it
is not unusual for high-end
homes, particularly historic,
custom or otherwise unique
dwellings, to remain on the
market for a year or more.
Robb, the listing agent on the
Wyck property, said while
several offers near the
original asking price have
come in, the Wyck
homeowners have chosen not
to sell yet.
The estate is now offered as
two separate properties, the 8-
acre main estate at $14.75
million and a carriage house
on 2 acres listed at $2.75
million. Robb added that
Manchester is still perceived
-as a "great value" by those


who are looking to purchase
second homes but have had
no luck in, say, the Hamptons
or Martha's Vineyard. The
drop in price doesn't worry
Robb, who said the luxury
market remains relatively
strong considering that most
of his clients buying in
Manchester are not looking
for a primary residence.
"At the end of the day, what
are these people owning these
properties for? Nothing," said
Robb. "Considering that,
these are very big numbers."
