Groundwater levels remained ex-
tremely low throughout most of the
Suwannee River Water Management
District in January. with five monitor-
ing wells dipping to historic lows and
45 well experiencing new record
lows for the month.
The district issued 17 emergency
construction permits for dry wells in
January, and a total of 174 since April.
The drop in groundwater levels is
due primarily to a long-term rainfall
deficit, district officials say. In Janu-
ary the district received, on average.
3.to. inches of rainfall. However, the
raintall deficit tor the past 24 months
is 2S 31 inche-. and the National

conservation tips
Outdoors:
Water lawns and landscapes no more
than two days a week, before 10 a.m.
or after 4 p.m.
If you must wash your vehicle or bathe
your pet, use an automatic shutoff noz-
zle on the hose.
Use a broom, not a hose,
to clean debris from sidewalks
and driveways.
Landscape with
drought-tolerant plants.
Indoors:
Fix leaks and/or install water-saving
devices on toilets,
faucets and showerheads.
Wash only full loads of clothes and
dishes; select the minimum water-vol-
ume setting needed per load.
Don't leave the faucet running while
brushing teeth,
shaving, or washing dishes.

Chief Judge E. Vernon
Douglas recently an-
nounced the appointment
of Sondra Lanier Williams
as trial court administrator
for the Third Judicial Cir-
cuit, serving Hamilton, Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Lafayette,


Madison, Suwannee and

in the Circuit.
"I'm honored to have
been selected for this posi-

Williams said, "and 1 am ex-

tion by FHP indicated the
accident was a random
head-on collision, but
then it was determined
that Philpot and Pafford
knew each other. Philpot
had been released from
the Florida Department of
Corrections in May 2007
after serving a prison sen-
tence for false imprison-
ment and aggravated as-
sault of Pafford, accord-
ing to CCSO.
The two agencies
searched for Philpot with
the assistance of canine
teams from the Baker
Corrections Institute and
the Fish and Wildlife
Commission. The dogs
led law enforcement offi-
cers to an area where
Philpot may have been
picked up by a vehicle,
according to CCSO. Evi-
dence at the scene indi-
cates Philpot may have
been injured and may
seek medical care. Ex-
treme caution should be


used in any contact with
Philpot, according to
CCSO.
Philpot was arrested in
2001 for attempted first-
degree murder and carry-
ing a concealed weapon
and in 2002 for kidnap-
ping while armed and ag-
gravated assault with a
deadly weapon, accord-
ing to a report from
www.columbiaclerk.com.
In 2005 he was sentenced
to two years and five
months for false impris-
onment and battery (do-
mestic violence), the re-
port states.
"We are actively
searching for Michael
Philpot," said Columbia
County Sheriff Bill
Gootee. "An arrest war-
rant has been issued for
Philpot for leaving the
scene of an accident with
injury. Anyone who has
any information on where
he may be, is asked to call

Heat in winter


No one minds meeting
up with Jack Frost while
they are enjoying outdoor
winter sports, but not one
wants him to nip at their
nose while they are still in-
side. Did you know that if
you are renting an apart-
ment or mobile home un-
der Florida Statute 83.51
your landlord is required
to provide you with heat
during winter? If your
landlord does not provide
heat during these winter
months, tenants have op-
tions under Florida law.
One option is very sim-
ple: Florida law allows a
tenant to send a "Rent
Withholding Letter" to the
landlord. Our office may
be able to provide you
with a form you can use.
The letter may be hand de-
livered to the landlord at
least seven days before the
next rent payment is due.
If the letter is mailed, then
tenants need to allow an
additional five days for de-
livery, so they would need
to mail it at least 12 days
before the next rent pay-
ment is due.
Tenants should make a
copy of their letter and
purchase the "proof of
mailing" service from the
post office (for approxi-
mately a $1). They should
not use Certified Mail. A
landlord can refuse certi-
fied mail or just not claim
it. If that happens, then the


tenant has not delivered
the letter as required by
the law and has to start the
process all over.
Tenants cannot just stop
paying rent without fol-
lowing this procedure. If
they do, then the landlord
can legally evict them for
non-payment of rent.
However, if the tenant fol-
lows this procedure, the
landlord cannot evict them
for non-payment of the
rent.
If you are renting an
apartment or mobile home
and your landlord is not
providing heat during
these winter months, you
may wish to contact Three
Rivers Legal Services, Inc.
to discuss all the options
that may be available to
you.
The foregoing advice is
provided by the lawyers at
Three Rivers Legal Ser-
vices, Inc., a non-profit cor-
poration, which receives
funds from various local
agencies and individuals,
as well as from the federal
government through Le-
gal Services Corporation
(LSC). For specific advice
on your particular situa-
tion, we suggest that you
consult with a lawyer of
your choosing. If you can-
not afford a lawyer, you
may call your local legal
services office to find out if
you qualify for free legal
assistance.

Mrs. Freeman's caring
gifts, and love of life and
people, have left us all
with sweet, beautiful
memories. Her entire life
was one dedicated to car-
ing for others. Her fa-
vorite pastime was visit-
ing family and friends.
Her loving demeanor and
unselfishness were an ex-
ample to us all. Memories
of her will always be
framed in the hearts and
minds of the many friends
and family members who
were blessed by knowing
her. The family would like
to extend a special thanks
to the staff at the Health
Center of Lake City who
cared for Mrs. Freeman
with compassion and re-
spect during her final
days.
The funeral service for
Mrs. Freeman will be held
on Thursday, February 21,
2008, at 1:00 p.m., at the
First Baptist Church of
White Springs with the
Reverend Lowell O'Steen

What's Happening Now ...
The Jengings City Coun-
cil met on Feb. 5. The coun-
cil adopted a new way to
address the council during
meetings for those who are
not on the agenda. If you
would like to address the
council you are going to be
required to submit a re-
quest before the meeting
starts and then you will be
allowed to have five min-
utes to address the council.
North Hamilton Ele-
mentary is hosting a beau-
ty pageant for grades first
through sixth, this Satur-
day at 6 p.m. Tickets are on
sale for $3.
New Hope Baptist
Church enjoyed having
Henry Zittrower speak
during the Sunday morn-
ing service on Feb. 17. He
had an awesome report
about what God has been
doing in Roatan the past
year. They need our con-
tinued prayer and support
for a community center
that will be used to help
the children receive an ed-
ucation beyond the sixth
grade. Many parents can-
not afford to send their
children to middle and
high school levels.
A Blast From the Past ...
Do you remember the
year of 1957? The Jennings
school was not an elemen-
tary school at that time. It
was a Class C high school.
The mascot was still the
Panthers and the colors
were still orange and
black. They played Oviedo
for the state champi-
onship. Oviedo won 52-40.

Warriors defeat Latma Academy


By Tom Parks
Playing a local rival on
a rainy evening on Thurs-
day, Jan. 24, Corinth
Christian Academy
(CCA) Warrior men's and
ladies' basketball teams
defeated the Latma Acad-
emy from Madison at Lee
Gym.
The ladies played first
and once again jumped
out to an early lead, using
a 9-0 run to dominate the
first quarter. However,
the Latma ladies fought
back in the second quar-
ter, closing the gap to 15-
9. An offensive effort by
S the Warrior girls closed
out the first half with
Corinth on top 19-9.


Latma opened the sec-
ond half with a long 2-
pointer, and forward
Kayla Rye was injured in
a collision with another
player shortly after-
wards. An inspired War-
rior team rose to the chal-
lenge, dominating the in-
side game, forcing Latma
into shots from the
perimeter.
Led by freshman
Tiffany Phillips with 12
points and 13 rebounds,
Corinth cruised in the
second half to a 43-17 vic-
tory. Sophomore Alayna
Abbott contributed 10
points, and Sharon Bon-
trager had 6 assists to go
with 4 points.


After the girls' game,
the men took the floor for
one of the most exciting
games of the year. Latma
scored early and often,
leading by as many as 7
points in the first half.
However, early foul trou-
ble forced several of Lat-
ma's players to play con-
servatively, and the War-
riors stepped up their
game, allowing Corinth
to regain the lead for
good with just a few min-
utes to go in the game. Ju-


nior Jeff Taylor's key re-
bound of a missed Latma
three-point attempt
sealed the game, with
Corinth winning 66-61.
Sophomore guard
Aaron Goyette had a ca-
reer night, pouring in 50
points on 15 of 19 shoot-
ing and 20 of 34 free
throws. Goyette also
pulled down 19 re-
bounds. Freshman Mike
Rye had 9 points and 5
steals, while senior Aaron
Beck had 5 points.

Florida's nonnative freshwater fishes


By Bob Wattendorf,O
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission (with Paul
Shafland, FWC, Scott
Hardin, FWC, and Paul
Zajicek, Dept. of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Ser-
vices)
Nonnative ,freshwater
fishes and aquatic plants
present challenges to
Florida's native species.
Thirty-four nonnative
freshwater fishes, intro-
duced from other coun-
tries, currently reproduce
in Florida. Almost all of
these introductions re-
sulted from individuals
releasing unwanted
aquarium or food fishes,
and/or the flooding of
aquaculture ponds. In ad-
dition, nonnative plants,
such 'as water hyacinth,
and invertebrates, such as
island apple snails, can
create environmental
problems.
Consequently, it is ille-
gal to release any nonna-
tive fish or other nonna-
tive organism into waters
of the state. Anyone want-


ing to dispose of live non-
native aquarium fish
should give them to a
friend or an aquarium
store, or euthanize them
by lowering the water
temperature with ice or
freezing them in a plastic
bag.
During 2007, FWC part-
nered with public and pri-
vate entities to post "Stop
Aquatic Hitchhiker" signs
at boat ramps, as part of a
national campaign. The
signs remind boaters to
clean their boats, trailers
or recreational equipment
of mud, plants or animals,
and to drain and dry their
equipment to prevent
movement of nuisance
species between water
bodies.
Nonnative fishes thrive
in Florida, partly because
of our subtropical climate
and because aquatic habi-
tats have been dramatical-
ly altered. In some cases,
such as southeast Florida
canals, nonnative fish's
specialized spawning and
rearing tactics (like mouth
brooding) may provide


them an advantage. Else-
where, efforts to mini-
mize water-level fluctua-
tions in lakes have caused
changes in plant commu-
nities and increased the
muck on the bottom of
lakes, which often favors
nonnative species.
In Florida, there are two
legally introduced nonna-
tive fish: triploid grass
carp and butterfly pea-
cock bass. They are used
as biological controls for
excessive growths of
aquatic vegetation and
overabundant forage fish-
es.
The triploid grass carp
is a functionally sterile
fish produced and certi-
fied in hatcheries. Since
they do not reproduce,
periodic stockings are re-
quired to control aquatic
vegetation. During the
past 20 years, results have
generally been favorable.
The butterfly peacock is
the only reproducing
nonnative fish legally in-
troduced. Extensive re-
search indicated their re-
lease would help reduce


an over-abundance of
nonnative forage fishes,
especially spotted tilapia.
Peacock bass have no
known detrimental ef-
fects, and they generate
millions of hours of fish-
ing pleasure for anglers,
who spend more than $8
million a year in Florida.
Although triploid grass
carp and peacock bass are
noteworthy exceptions, it
is important to remember
that nonnative species do
not generally belong here.
It is illegal for anyone to
transfer or release any
nonnative species in Flori-
da, including the butterfly
peacock. The only excep-
tion is the immediate re-
lease of triploid grass carp
and peacock bass that
cannot be harvested.

tion and relevant links at

Jackson finishes

fourth in Junior

World Championships;

13th in World

Championships


Jamia Jackson
By Amanda.Bird, USBSF
Jamia Jackson (Lake
City) and Emily Azeve-
do (Chico, Calif.) fin-
ished fourth in the
women's bobsled Junior
World Championships
in Igls, Austria on Feb. 9,
just 0.01 seconds from
the bronze.
"My first run was de-
cent, but I was sloppy on
the bottom of the track in
the second run, which is
where I lost time," Jack-
son said. "My goal was
to perform to the best of
my potential today and
to see where it got me.
I'm ready to shake this
off, even though losing
the bronze by only one-
hundredth of a second
today is tough."
The young Americans
teamed together to push
a start time of 5.82 sec-
onds, sixth best of the
heat, for a first run time
of 54.71 seconds. The
duo entered the final
heat in third position.
Team USA slid a sec-
ond run time of 55.09
seconds, fifth best of the
heat, after pushing a 5.82
start time. Finishing with
a combined time of
1:49.80, Jackson and
Azevedo slid into fourth
place.
Team USA rejoined the
World Cup team for the
World Championships
in Altenberg, Germany
on Feb. 15-16. The 1,413-
meter track is regarded
as one of the most diffi-


cult courses
in the world.
Jackson had
the most ex-
perience dri-
ving the dif-
ficult Ger-
man track of
the US dri-
vers after
having slid
the course
last season in
Junior World
Champi-
onships.
The 2007-
1 g2008

women's
bobsled sea-
son conclud-
ed with the US placing
two sleds in the top ten.
Despite crashing, Shau-
na Rohbock (Orem,
Utah) and Valerie Flem-
ing (Foster City, Calif.)
were able to finish in the
top ten with a ninth
place result. The sled
crossed the line in
1:00.09, giving Rohbock
and Fleming a four-run
combined time of
3:54.07.
Erin Pac (Farmington,
Conn.) and Elana Meyers
(Douglasville, Ga.) fin-
ished with an impressive
seventh place result with
a four-run combined
time of 3:53.72.
Jackson and Mickie
Rzepka (Novi, Mich.)
made their World
Championship debut,
finishing 13th with a
combined time of
3:55.21. Team USA III
pushed times of 6.05 and
6.06 for runs of 58.73
and 58.78, respectively.
S"I was really excited
coming into World
Championships," Jack-
son said. "I was a little
off on the first day, so I
dug myself into a hole.
But yesterday is yester-
day, today is today, and I
told myself to go for it
and did the best I could."

This is where I run


By Peggy Boston
Last week my daugh-
ter, Dixie, spent the after-
noon at the University of
Florida. She was invited
to attend the UF Gator
Cheerleader Clinic for
the day. After spending
several hours practicing
cheers and having lots of
Gator fun with hundreds
of other cheerleaders her
age she cheered for the
crowds attending the UF
Women's Gymnastics
meet against Arkansas.
While in Gainesville I
saw tons of people run-
ning the streets and bik-
ing, and made my way
around the O'Connell
Center to watch the swim
team in practice, as well
as the gymnasts warming
up. I talked to a local per-
son about how amazing
it is to live in such an ac-
tive town, where one can
spend the days or nights
at exhibitions of this cal-
iber. I left pondering.
A couple of days ago I
went trail running. What
an amazing sight to see
the leaves flying through
the wind across the tree


laden trail overlooking
the creek. This is where I
run.
On my way back I
watched a family rappel
the old bridge and fol-
lowed canoers along the
bank while I waited for a
client for a two- hour
hike. As I stood on the
banks of the Suwannee
listening to the birds,
squirrels and the water
rushing out of the creek, I
couldn't help but be
grateful, appreciative
and very decisive that
I've made the right trade
off.
I lived in Gainesville
for a few years, and even
in bigger cities, but living
in Hamilton County just
does not compare. I
would definitely rather
travel for a couple of
hours of entertainment
and live in the natural en-
vironment that lends it-
self to daily enjoyment
and fitness availability,
than vice versa! This is
where I run.

4Cs Learning Center earns APPLE Gold Seal


Suwannee Valley 4Cs
Live Oak Learning Center
recently received APPLE
(Accredited Professional
Preschool Learning Envi-
ronment) accreditation
designating it a Gold Seal
Quality Care Program.
The accreditation is a
voluntary national pro-
gram whose standards ex-
ceed the minimum child
care licensing standards


established by the Depart-
ment of Children and
Families Florida Statutes
and the Florida Adminis-
trative Code. The process
can take as long as 18
months to complete, and
evaluates policies, proce-
dures and personnel, and
includes an onsite verifi-
cation visit to the center.
Michele Ward, Execu-
tive Director of Suwannee


Valley 4Cs, said, "We are
very proud of our pro-
gram and staff, and are
very pleased to be desig-
nated a Gold Seal Quality
Care Program. This is an
achievement of a goal we
have for all our learning
centers. Live Oak is our
fourth center to be volun-
tarily accredited."
Last year Suwannee
Valley 4Cs was awarded a


National Gold Certificate
of Excellence after being
reviewed by the federal
Department of Health
and Human Services, Ad-
ministration for Children
and Families. The ACF
Gold Certificate is some-
thing very few Head Start
programs achieve. The
week long triennial feder-
al on-site monitoring re-
view conducted the


spring of last year deter-
mined that the Suwannee
Valley 4Cs Head
Start/Early Head Start
Programs are in full com-
pliance with all Head
Start Program perfor-
mance standards, laws,
regulations and policy re-
quirements.
Suwannee Valley 4Cs
serves 430 low-income
children, ages three to


eight, and their families
and pregnant women in
Hamilton, Columbia,
Lafayette and Suwannee
counties. The agency's
program is a comprehen-
sive child development
program and includes
components addressing
education, health, disabil-
ities, social services, nutri-
tion, mental health and
parent involvement.

PAG 6B. THE JAPE NES apr LTUS ERAY2,20


Again we have been
blessed with missing the
devastating weather ex-
perienced in so many oth-
er parts of the country
and the world. Don't we
live in the best area, not
just weatherwise, but we
have many positives, so
much for which to be
thankful. Let us promote
the assets and have a pos-
itive outlook for the fu-
ture of our area, stand to-
gether on the good things,
work to better the nega-
tives, rather than just talk
or fuss about it.
Some of the people who
have come here from oth-
er places know how to ap-
preciate our community.
Having lived other places
they can appreciate what
we have here and only
want to make it better and
still retain the "communi-
ty feeling." Having lived
in a few other places, I am
able to look for and find
the good things here that I
have seen and loved in
other places.
It seems that recently
wherever I go, the old-
timers, and I seem to be
getting to be more of one,
talk of what Main Street
(not named that) was like
when we could walk from
store to store. One lady re-
minded me of Leslie's
grocery store, and I
learned that was the same
store that we knew as
Johnsons on the corner
where Family Dollar is
now located. Also bring-
ing to mind the movie
theater, Mrs. Milton's
jewelry store, the bakery
across the street; I could
go on and on, but won't
do so at this time. If you
have something you can
discuss with me, call me
or email me.
Maybe this is coming to
my attention as we plan
for the celebration. There
are many happy memo-
ries we can share. I think
of the changes in down-
town, in the county, the
schools, Jasper, Jennings
and White Springs, and


am thankful to have
spent almost 50 years in
Hamilton County, and
hope to spend many
more.
Many of you know
how I love to read. Right
now I am in the midst of
reading two books that
mean so much to me. One
is The Journey by Dr. Bil-
ly Graham in which he
brings us through the
years of life, even through
moments, days, nights
and years, breaking it
down in small amounts
that are easy to identify
with us as we grow in age
and in knowledge. I high-
ly recommend it for those
of us who are getting on
in years, also for those
who are facing each day
in whatever phase of your
life you are living.
Also, You've Just Got to
Read This Book; yes, that
is the name of it stories
written by authors on
how they got through dif-
ferent phases of their
lives. These are compiled
by one of the authors of
the Chicken Soup books
and other authors, sug-
gesting other books read
by people who have faced
changes true to life, such
an inspiration. To me they
are more helpful than the
Chicken Soup books, but I
liked them at the time.
Pardon my getting a little
personal, but this was
something I felt I needed
to share.
Many folks in our area
are ill or facing health
problems. If you have a
need and want to share it
through me; please con-
tact me, my phone is now
cleared for messages.
Our schools are busy
with athletics and other
activities about which you
can read in other parts of
the paper. Keep informed
and support them in any
way you can; your pres-
ence will be appreciated.
As we have mentioned
many times, our commu-
nity revolves around our
churches, school and their


Norris Notes

activities. Stay informed
and supportive.
At Jasper First Presby-
terian Church we were
privileged to have Mr. Bil-
ly Taylor of the Gideons
Bible Society present their
program at the morning
worship service, in the ab-
sence of the pastor. Most
of you are probably famil-
iar with their program of
distributing Bibles all
over the world; we just
need to be reminded of
this need. It is an annual
message for us.
On Sunday, Feb. 10,
Jack and Louise Vinson
had invited gospel group
Lost Dogs Found to bring
their message in song to
First -United Methodist
Church, Jasper. This
group had performed at
the Methodist Church in
Hahira, Ga. One of the
members is Paul Johnson,
brother of Louise Vinson
and Alma Sherban of
Jasper. It was a very
meaningful service. After
the Sunday service Jack
Vinson treated Lost Dogs
Found, their spouses and
the Johnson clan, which
included Glenda and
Brice Dennis and their
daughters, Jamie Martin
and Miranda Dennis,
Alma Scherban and her
son-in-law and daughter,
Henry and Marsha Groll,
Maryanne (Louise and
Alma's sister) and Ronnie
Lastinger, from Hahira,
Ga., to lunch at H&F
Restaurant.
On Sunday, March 9,
Amber Lee will bring
"Songfilled Praise and
Joyful Testimony" to the
First United Methodist
Church, during the morn-
ing worship service.
It is our understanding
that First Baptist Search
Committee has a number
of applicants for the call-
ing of a new pastor in


their church. We pray that
they will be able to find
the right person to lead
their congregation. The
church is on a mission for
the members to read the


Bible through in a year;
there seems to be a real
feeling for this challenge.
Looking forward to
hearing from you.

The shelter also offers
optional microchipping
when you adopt for $10
more.
Diamonds, in the Ruff
adoption fee $30. *
If you have lost a pet or
found one, the Humane
Society will help you find
your pet. Call 850-971-9904
or toll-free at 866-236-7812.
Leave a message if they are
closed, your call will be
returned. Remember to
always call your local
animal control or shelters if
you have a lost or found
animal.
The Suwannee Valley
Humane Society really
appreciates donations; it
couldn't operate without
them. Donations are the
heart and soul of its thrift
shop income. Please
consider taking them
donations of clothes,
household goods, furniture
and toys. All donations
should be in good condition;
otherwise, they cannot sell
them. Thank you!
THRIFT STORES:
You must come see our
thrift stores, if you have not
been here before. We have


three stores, a boutique,
clothing and furniture. We
are always looking for
donations for the stores.
Please keep us in mind if
you have items in good
condition you would like to
donate to us.
Volunteers are wanted and
needed four hours a week on
the day of your choice. Call
to learn more. People are
always needed to hold, pet,
love and walk the homeless
animals at the shelter, so if
you can't adopt you can
always come help in many
other ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a
newspaper-recycling bin at
305 Pinewood Drive, Live
Oak, just west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at 1156
SE Bisbee Loop, Madison
(just South of Lee) for
newspapers, catalogs, paper,
magazines and broken down
cardboard. All the money
goes to help the homeless
animals.
SPAYING AND
NEUTERING:
Experts say the most
important thing people can
do to help their pets is to get/


them spayed or neutered.
This means the animals get
an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or
puppies. They are asleep
during the operation, so they
aren't scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are
so important because there
are so many animals
needing care and not enough
homes or shelters for them.
One cat or dog can have
many litters in its life. Its
kittens or puppies can have
many litters, too. This can
end up creating thousands of
new cats and dogs.
Featured animals for
adoption:
Remember, do not leave
pets in vehicles for any
length of time due to the
heat and humidity or cold
weather.
FEATURED ANIMALS

Covered wagon train to travel Suwannee River route


Continued From Page 1C

ever in this part of the country," said wagon
master John Paul Schneider of Live Oak,
Florida.
It's been a life long dream of Schneider's
to make this trip. But, he had to wait until
Suwannee River Water Management District
(SRWMD) purchased enough land along the
Suwannee to allow the wagon trail access to
the greatest majority of its banks. The wagon
train will take the river route when possible
but will have to travel on many public
highways some of the time.
"It's been kinda in my mind for the last 20
years," said Schneider, a retired feed store
owner, well known horse, wagon and mule
enthusiastic and veteran wagon master who
participated in The Last Cattle Drive in 1995
that traveled 60 miles through Central
Florida, winding its way across five major
ranches. "The late George Murrah and Billy
Summers and I would ride together and talk
about this for years that one of these days we
would get together and ride the long ride," he
said. As the years wore on, both Murrah and
Summers passed away without realizing their
part of the dream, but Schneider said he kept
dreaming for himself and his friends. "After I
retired, it was real strong in my mind...I told
Jerry Scarborough (SRWMD director) that as
soon as they had enough land along the river,
I'wantedato.do it." That day will arrive Feb.
25 when the covered wagons, wagon
masters, horses and mules will assemble at
Griffis Fish Camp in the Okefenokee
Swamp, the headwaters of the Suwannee
River, and history will begin to unfold its
unique story'about the dreams of three men
finally coming true after years of hoping and
more than a year of planning.
Schneider and his mule, Mary, will lead
the way with Schneider's one-mule wagon.
"We'll have a special event that day for the
opening ceremony, and then when we get
mounted up and everyone is ready to go,
we'll have a prayer and ask the Lord's safety
for the wagon train," Schneider said. "We'll
do that every morning and evening."
Although anyone can visit the wagon train
during the trip, those who can't will not have
to dream about it...they can see it on RFDTV
in the near future. The Best of America by
Horseback TV series with Tom Seay is


expected to be along for the ride, recording
every aspect of this richly historic event on
film for future generations and wagoneer
wannabes.
Best of America by Horseback
(info@bestofamericabyhorseback.com) and
the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park
(musicliveshere.com) in Live Oak, Fla., and
RO Ranch Equestrian Park Inc.
(RMC@srwmd.org) in Mayo, Fla. are
sponsoring the wagon train. Each sponsor is
participating in various ways.
Why make such a grueling trip? "It's the
challenge of it, plus remembering what our
ancestors did and how much easier our job is
than our ancestors," Schneider said.
Participation in the wagon train is by
invitation only this year with no vacancies
left. Next year, however, may be another
story, Schneider said. If this first one is the
success he and others believe it will be,
anyone who would like to have this
experience could become a paying
participant for future rides. But, that's getting
the horse, or rather the mule, before the
wagon.
Evenings around the campfire for wagon
train participants will be a time to relax, rest
up from the hard days, eat a little grub
cooked over a permitted fire, listen to some
fiddling', mountain dulcimer by Betty
Schneider and Peggy Raulerson and perhaps
a few other instruments, the likes of which
probably would have been on early wagon
trains driven from South Carolina into the
South Georgia and North Florida areas in the
early 1800s as these areas began to be settled.
During the ride, Peggy Raulerson will be
completing a song about the wagon train she
started writing a while back. Participants will
be asked along the way to help complete a
verse or two to have the song wrapped up by
the end of the trip.
The wagon train will travel about 18-20
miles per day, breaking camp early and
hitting the road by around 9 a.m. each day.
"We can average about 3.5 miles an hour,
hopefully," Schneider suggests. "We will be
as close to the river as we can be and will
camp on the river every night," he said.
"The people have welcomed us into the
campgrounds like Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park in White Springs,
Florida; Hamilton County has really been

nice, plus the law enforcement officers in all
the counties where we need to cross bridges
have been very nice," Schneider stated. He
said the wagon train must pass through five
Florida Agriculture Inspection Stations along
the way and have all health permits needed
for the animals.
The wagon train will stop at Stephen
Foster State Park and Twin Rivers in
Hamilton County, move into Suwannee
County, spend a weekend at the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park where Schneider said
he's sure some of the wagon train people will
be part of the pickin' and grinning' that goes
on there. At this stop, the wagons will be on
display for several days. Then it's into
Madison County at Ellaville, a night at the
farm of Lyndon Fortner in Suwannee County,
another night at historic Charles Springs in
Suwannee County, then on to the RO Ranch
in Lafayette County where there will be
special festivities before various other stops
along the way to Suwannee, where a
celebration honoring the completion of the
trip will be held.
During the RO Ranch stopover, there will
be a dedication on March 8 of the new
buildings at that facility off SR 51 in Cook's
Hammock. The public is invited to attend
this event.
The public will be invited to stop by
wherever the wagon train spends nights and
weekends, ask questions,. take a look around
and be a part of this history-making trek.
Schneider's longtime friend and ride
devotee, Bob Raulerson, also of Suwannee
County, will be along on this ride as he has
for the past 10 years. A retired state game and
wildlife officer, Raulerson is living the good
life these days, enjoying his dreams also. "I
was always just as busy as could be being a
possum' cop, so I never did this before I
moved here," he said quietly. Now, he and
his wife, Peggy, go along with Schneider on
many rides with their Missouri Fox Trotter
Walking Horses. "There hasn't been a ride
like this since at least the early 1800s,"
Raulerson said, noting he can find no record


of any ride of this nature along the Suwannee
River. "We know people who were here in
the 1900s, and they don't know of anyone
who did it." Raulerson said.
"What will be unique about all this is that
other than nobody else having done it, it will
show our love for our animals and the nature
part of it...the wildlife...and we will be out
there in their territory," Schneider noted.
"We will be out there among them...we do
that all the time," he said. "It's a family-
oriented thing, our children and
grandchildren have grown up riding mules,
horses and wagons with us. Hopefully, my-
15-year-old grandson Jake Jerkins will be
right there beside me, riding on a horse,"
Schneider said of the trip.
Schneider, Raulerson and others who will
be taking this dream trip have been getting
their mules ready since early January. "We
have worked all of January and most of
February to get them in shape," Schneider
advised. The wagoneers have been "testing
the waters" during.this time as they have
driven most of the proposed route in
preparation for the big day. "Bob and I have
been out on about every foot of it so far,"
Schneider said as Raulerson nodded in
agreement.
When asked about the cost of such a trip,
Schneider and Raulerson both prefer not to
be accountable. "This is our hobby, we don't
put a price tag on the hobby," Schneider said.
"It's unbelievable the amount of
expense...$50,000 for a truck plus $50,000
for a trailer...it's a labor of love more than
anything else," Raulerson said.
Schneider said the cost would skyrocket if
their time was figured into it. But, they're not
about to put a'price tag on dreams, and
besides, Schneider points out, there are more
than 72,000 people in Florida involved in the
equestrian business so you could figure the
wagon train as an economic booster.
Wagons, Ho!
For more information about the wagon
train, contact the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park at 386-364-1683.

Green Tea Has Beneficial Uses in the Home


Nutritionists have long touted the health benefits of green tea.
It's power-packed with antioxidants, making it a disease fighter
and generally healthy brew to enjoy.
But the benefits of green tea do not need to end at tea time.
Green tea leaves can be recycled for many other purposes around.
the home and garden. The "green" in green tea can take on a new
,connotation when this environmentally friendly product is used in
new ways.
The same antioxidant ingredients in green tea are also known
for their odor-absorbing abilities. Tea is loaded with catechins -
the antioxidant substances. The catechins have antibacterial
properties that make tea leaves great for fighting odor. Usually
the tea leaves need to be dried before use as a deodorizer. To do
so, simply put the wet tea leaves into a strainer and spread out.
Press the leaves to remove as much moisture as possible. Then
allow to air dry, turning the leaves over several times in the
process.
Pet Beds/Litter Boxes: Sprinkle dried tea leaves onto a pet bed,
blanket or pillow: The leaves will help dissipateany foul pet
odors. The same technique can be applied with litter boxes. The
tea leaves help remove odor and can repel fleas from dogs and
cats.
Carpeting: Skip the chemical carpet deodorizer and use dried tea
leaves instead. Sprinkle over the.carpet, let sit 10 to 15 minutes
and then vacuum.
Refrigerator/Kitchen: Put used wet tea leaves or bags in a bowl
in the refrigerator to help absorb odors from strong-smelling
foods. Wet tea leaves can also be used to rid hands of the smell of


je.


A healthy beverage, tea also serves other purposes around the home.


garlic or onions after preparation.
Garden: Sprinkle the tea leaves into the garden as a form of
mulch and nutrition to plants.
Cleaning: In some Eastern cultures, a solution of tea is used to
disinfect and cleanse things like yoga and sleeping mats. Use tea
for deodorizing and cleaning where applicable. Just note that wet
tea leaves can stain, so test in an inconspicuous area before using
on a large area.
