H1N1 and

How to avoid swine flu at school
By Jo Ross
- "Students should wash hands thoroughly and often,
cough into their elbow or sleeve if they don't have a
tissue available, stay home if they're sick," says Sharon
Gay, Director of Nursing for Hamilton Cdunty Public
Health Unit. "Parents need a plan for child care of sick
children - please don't send them to school an4dalso if
parents are sick, they need to stay home from work until
they're better to reduce the chance of spreading
infection."
With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
recommendations in hand, Hamilton County school
nurses are asking parents to use the following guidelines
regarding their children.
Stay at home when sick: Those with flu-like symptoms
should stay at home for at least 24 hours after they no
longer have fever, or signs of a fever, without the use of
fever reducing medicines. They should stay at home
longer if they are using anti viral drugs.
Separate ill students and staff: Students and staff who
appear to have flu-like illness should be sent to a room
separate from others until the can be sent home. CDC
recommends they weara surgical mask, if possible, and
that those who.care for ill students and staff wear
protective gear such as a mask.
Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette: Stay home
when sick, wash hands frequently with soap and water,
cover noses and mouths with a tissue when coughing or
sneezing.

Phone solicitations

a scam, says VFW
By Cecil Davis
Telephone calls have been received this week by
several Hamilton County citizens by a man
purporting to be from VFW Post 8095. He is asking
for money for postage to send boxes to deployed
military. While VFW members are always grateful
for the generous donations from Hamilton County
residents both in goods and postage funds, do not
donate any money over the telephone; this is a scam.
SVFW members have never solicited money by
.-.telephone for the boxes.
If anyone receives a telephone call soliciting
funds, please get the person's name and phone
number, and call the Hamilton County Sheriff's
Office to report the call.

EMS receives new

equipment thanks to grant


By Jo Ross
Good news for the residents
of Hamilton County and great
news for the Hamilton County,
EMS. Thanks to grant funding,
the Hamilton EMS was able to
acquire at no expense to the
county, four state of the art
pieces of equipment to enable
them to better serve residents.
Edgar Lumpkin, director of
Hamilton EMS, was proud to
accept and receive training,
along with his. staff on the two
new Stair-Pro lift chairs which


enable medics to safely lower
up to 500-pound patients
down stairs. The chairs come
equipped with traction
features which reduce the
chance of slippage.
Stan McQuiston, a
representative for Stryker, a
supplier of emergency
equipment, told the Jasper
News, "Out of every ten calls a
medic responds to the new
stretcher will save in excess of

Get ready for license,

ID card changes

Gather.Go.Get. prepares residents for new driver
license and ID card requirements effective Jan. 1, 2010

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles today launched Gather. Go. Get., an educational
campaign designed to assist Floridians with new driver
license and identification card requirements. Beginning Jan.
1, 2010, Floridians renewing or obtaining a new license or
ID will be required to show proof of: 1) identification, 2)
Social Security number and 3) residential address (two
items).
The campaign is anchored by a new website designed to
help residents understand the new requirements. DHSMV
is encouraging Floridians to visit GatherGoGet.com to find
out how and when to gather your documents, go to a driver
license office and get your new card. The GatherGoGet.com
campaign website will enable residents to:
* Determine when they will need to visit a driver license
or tax collector office.
* Create a personalized checklist detailing documents they
will need.
* Obtain contact information showing where to get
required documents.
* Browse a list of driver license offices in their local area.
' "Florida is a national leader in drive license and ID card
,. , security," said DHSMV Exe.cutie, Direto,. Electi a
Theodorides-Bustle. "These new requirements reflect our
continuing commitment to the integrity and security of this
process and will help lead the way to a
safer Florida."
Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, all Florida
residents wishing to obtain a new license,
legally change their name prior to the
renewal date, or immediately replace a lost
or stolen license or ID card should visit an
j H office with the required documents ready
"- - for processing. Those simply renewing may .
bit do so by a convenience method via the
Internet or mail one time between office
visits. The next renewal after the
convenience option must be in a driver
license or tax collector office. Residents
may always update their address or obtain a
replacement card onlinp at GoRenew.com.
"We are working to produce the most
secure identification document possible
and by improving our issuance process we
will ensure that the personal information of
Floridians is safer from ideAtity theft," said
Division of Driver License Director,
Sandra Lambert.
Residents are encouraged to use
GatherGoGet.com not only to identify the
documents they need, but also to find out
when they will need to visit an office. As
the changes may require some preparation,
the Department encourages residents to
visit the Web site to speed through the
process in order to keep from having to
make a second trip. For more information
about the Gather. Go. Get. campaign, or to

Should like to
report that
the appreciation pro-
gram given for Louise
Brown on August 1 at
E l.Beulah Baptist Pro-
gram %was a huge suc-
cess. A devotional ser-
vice was held, following beautiful selections from
New Bethel AME Choir and St. Luke Baptist Church
choir of White Springs. Solos were performed by
Steve Roberts, Charles White and Mae Francis Mar-
shall of White Springs and Ray Camel of Jasper. Re-
flections on behalf of Mrs. Brown were given by
many friends and members. A wonderful praise
dance was performed by New Bethel Youth Chojr.
Mrs. Brown's son, Anthony Brown was visiting from
service in Afghanistan and her daughter Patricia,
who spoke very nicely about her mother, visited
from Lawton, Oklahoma. Most of her children and
grandchildren were in attendance.
This columnist and the members of Beulah Baptist
church would like to extend their deepest sympathy


Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Members of the Grad-
uation Class of Jasper
High School, 1959, de-
scended on Jasper, Fri-
day, June 19, 2009 for a
week-end of fun and fel-
lowship in celebration
of their 50th year class
reunion. When they.
gathered around the
pool at the home of
classmates, Gerry and
Margaret Davis Lewis
on Friday for a buffet
shrimp dinner (provid-
ed by classmate Larry
Burnham) it was the
first time some mem-
bers of the group had


NIf


seen each other since
graduation. Side dishes
and desserts were pro-
vided by local class-
mates.
After dinner, the
group enjoyed a train
ride through town. The
train is owner and oper-
ated by Larry Burnham.
They toured the town,
stopping at points of in-
terest, including the rose
garden on the corner of
Hatley Street and 1st
Avenue SW. The roses
were planted by Gerald
Lewis, in memory of his
godfather, Harry T.

with that I seldom w%*about anything connected to
my duties on the tW'n coitncil. I even suspended
this column when I ran for'office. Having said that,
I want to tell you a little about a couple of recurring
themes that came up when I attended the Florida
League of Cities convention last weekend. I think
you will agree that the observations are social, not
political. Of course the economy was a subject of
much attention. This year, Stephen Foster's song
"Hard Times" would have been an appropriate sub-
stitution for "Old Folks at Home" as our state song. I
was very impressed with the genuine concern ex-
pressed. I saw folks there from small towns such as
Mayo, Madison, Jasper and Live Oak, all attending
workshops and presentations that might better pre-
pare them to deal with financial hard times. Regard-
less of their party affiliation or political of view, they
came together to seek common ground and work on
solutions to common problems. I didn't see any fin-
ger pointing. I didn't hear any name calling. One or
two of the workshops had to do with restoring civil-
ity to the dialogue we have with each other and they

classmate Carlton
Brown, owner of
Brown's Flower Shop. It
was such fun riding
through town-clanging
the bell and waving at
people. They even
stopped long enough to
pay a visit with close
friend Judge John Peach.
Being together, sharing
memories and laughter
was a wonderful experi-
ence.
On Saturday evening,
the group met at the
VFW at 5:30pm for a
class meeting, followed
by dinner and dance.

were seated.

Carolyn McCall Mar-
shall, Co-Chairman and
Co-Salutatorian. A prize
was awarded to Carolyn
Marshall for having
traveled the longest dis-
tance (Magnolia, Ken-
tucky).
Following the class
meeting, a memorial
service was held in
memory of deceased
members as names were
called by Marilyn
Tompkins. Candles
were lit followed by a
moment of silence and
meditation. The de-
ceased members hon-

were well attended. It was refreshing. I'll admit to
occasionally being downright discouraged by the
negative tone that has crept into our local, state and
national scene. It seems as if we are all shouting at
each other instead of listening to each other. The
Florida League of Cities was concerned about that
and that makes me feel good. After all, the members
are folks just like you and me and I think they are
tired of all the shouting. I can't tell you that we
solved all of the problems of our towns and cities. I
can tell you that many people talked, many listened
and many learned and, best of all, nobody shouted!
It is so very good to be home. In my first ten min-
utes in Orlando, I got lost more times and spent more
time sitting at red lights than I have in my entire 20
years in White Springs. The fifteen dollar hamburg-
ers were shock too, and they didn't taste near as
good as the ones at Fat Belly's. Cokes were five
bucks! Be very, very glad that you live in White
Springs! I am, now more than ever!
Please let me hear from you soon.

Barbara Kay (Walker) Johnson
Mrs. Barbara Kay (Walker) Johnson,
age 49, of Williston, FL., passed away
Thursday, August 13, 2009, in Jasper,
FL. Barbara was born in Naples, FL.
where she lived until moving to
Williston in 2005. Barbara enjoyed
cooking and experimenting with new
recipes and found great joy in seeing
people enjoy her creations. Her
daughters stated that "Barbara's heart
was in the kitchen". When Barbara
wasn't in the kitchen, you could find
her in the yard. She enjoyed plants
of all types and could tell you what
almost any plant was just by glancing.
She gained much of her plant knowl-
edge from working for a landscaping
company in Naples, FL. Plants were
one more way that Barbara could
share her creativity and love with the
people around her. Once she became
a grandmother there was rarely a con-
versation that took place without her
mentioning how perfect and cute
those little boys are. Both of her
grandchildren added much joy to her
life. Barbara's battle with cancer was
brief, but she fought it with all her
strength. She endured all the treat-
ments with one goal in mind, being
able to spend time with her loved
ones. Barbara rededicated her life to
the Lord during this time and wanted
others to know'that she was going to
Heaven.
She is survived by her husband of


28 years, Ernest Johnson of Williston,
FL.; three daughters, Julia Lorraine
Johnson, Rebecca Ann Johnson, and
Emily Elizabeth Johnson all of Willis-
ton, FL.; one son-in-law, Javier Dam-
asco of Williston, FL.; two grandsons,
Xavier and Xander Damasco both of
Williston, FL.; her parents Carla and
Shelly Goldie of Jasper, FL, and Bill
and Joann Walker of Gurley, AL.;'
three brothers, Roger Walker (Dar-
lene) of Interlachen, FL., Tony Goldie
(Donna) of Live Oak, FL., and James
Goldie of Virginia.; one very close un-
cle, Richard Cunard (Linda), of
Naples, FL.; si4 sisters, Laura Johnson
(Robert) of Jasper, FL., Debbie Griffith
(Joe) of Jennings, FL., Brenda Heisner
(Scott) of Groveland, FL., Tina Smith
(Paul) of Naples, FL., Vicky Beach
(Rusty) of Bay Sf. Louis, MS., and
Kathy Williams (Jeff) of Chiefland,
FL.; mother-in-law, Betty Johnson of
Williston, FL.; two brother-in-laws,
Troy Johnson of Williston, FL., and
Joe Foster (Lynn) of Naples, FL.; nu-
merous nieces and nephews, and in-
numerable friends.
Funeral services were held Satur-
day, August 15, 2009 in the chapel of
Harry T. Reid Funeral Home, Jasper,
FL. Interment followed in Evergreen
Cemetery, Jasper, FL.
Condolences may be conveyed on-
line at www.harrytreidfh.com. Harry
T. Reid Funeral Home was in charge
of arrangements.

special event was the
appearance of "Elvis"
Ted McMullen, who
performed and enter-
tained the group in true
Elvis style. They were
joined by many friends
and fellow JHS gradu-
ates as they danced the
night away.
A special surprise
was the appearance of
Doctor Fred Mickler,
who had been their
sports physician. This
group was Dr. Mickler's
first, as he began his
practice in Jasper dur-
ing their Senior year,
1958-1959. He remem-


bered every football
player and which posi-
tion each one played.
On Sunday morning,
the group was wel-
comed'at the Presbyter-
ian Church and joined
by former teachers, Mr.
Joe Corbett Mitchell
(who was class sponsor
and chaperone for their
1959 Class Trip to
Washington, DC and
New York); Mrs. Gwen
Tuten; Mrs. Bessie Mil-
ton; Mrs. Virginia Davis
McFarlane and Mrs.
Pauline Kennedy.
A wonderful message
was delivered by friend
and SHE Principal
Waylon Bush and a


beautiful song for the
class was sung by close
friend and Jasper High
School Graduate Eliza-
beth Hackle Pratt.
Following the Church
Services, the group hon-
ored their former teach-
ers by inviting them to
lunch at the H & F
Restaurant where a de-
licious buffet was
served. The class pre-
sented the teachers with
monogrammed blan-
kets.
The weekend left each
member going his or
her own way, promis-
ing to return home and
reunite in the neat fu-
ture.

classes can be taken ei-
ther for credit or non-
credit and do not re-
quire previous course-
work or training to suc-
ceed!
A course that has at-
tracted non-degree stu-
dents is woody plants.
This class is quite com-
prehensive and pro-
vides the student with
both inside and outside
instruction. The class
meets twice per week
and is divided into two
parts during the week.
The first meeting time
involves inside lecture
and training where the
student begins to un-
derstand the basic terms
used, to describe the
various plant parts and
identification features.
The second meeting
time the student is out-
side seeing the actual
plant parts and struc-
tures discussed in class
and learning how to
identify each plant en-
countered in the field.
Students really enjoy
the outside part because
they can truly measure
their ability to identify
all the important land-
scape plants. Once they
have developed a basic
proficiency in doing this
they are able to go out
on their own and learn
plants not only on cam-
pus but throughout the
community. This is a
where non-degree stu-
dent excels because
he/she can move at
whatever pace they
want in identifying new
plants plus all students
learn the essentials
about each plant which
include origin, sun or
shade tolerance, insect
and disease resistance,
and flowering period.
Each student is re-
quired to.construct an
identification Reference
Manual which consists
of all the essential back-
ground information


about the plant plus a
photo sample of each
specimen. Non-degree
students who do not
wish to take the course
for a grade would not
have to provide a man-
ual or take any of the
lecture or field identifi-
cation exams. They can
simply enjoy learning
about the plants and
concentrate on those
plants that would best
suit their personal inter-
ests. Most personal en-
richment students will
put together a photo al-
bum of learned plants
which they use as atvi-
sual reference at home
or business. When the
students have success-
fully completed the
course they are able to
identify over one hun-
dred and seventy-five
different landscape
plants from oaks and
pines to the smallest
groundcovers and \ines
used around the home. '
Another class that at-
tracts non-degree stu-
dents is landscape pest
control. This course is
for the more serious
homeowner or land-
scape businessperson
who wants a more thor-
ough understanding of
insect pests in the Flori-
da landscape and how
to best control them.
This course works quite
well with the woody
plant course because it
focuses on the most sig-
nificant pests, the plants
they are associated
with, and how to they
are best controlled. This
course also has an out-
side component but not
every week. Students
are required to com-
plete an insect collection
of the most prominent
harmful and beneficial
insects. This exercise
not only helps the stu-
dent understand where
these harmful insects
are found but also
teaches them about the
important beneficial in-
sects vital to keeping
harmful insects in check
and how to manage a
landscape with minimal
or no chemical applica-
tions.
A person doesn't have
to commit to a degree
program to get the en-
joyment and benefit of
learning a specific skill
to enrich their lives.

2009 Florida Book Awards

Competition begins with call for entries


The fourth annual Florida Book
Awards
(floridabookawards.lib.fsu.edu/in-
dex.php) competition kicked off Aug.
3 with a call for entries in seven cate-
gories.
Established in 2006 and now the
most comprehensive state book
awards program in the nation, the
contest recognizes and celebrates the
year's best books penned by full-time
residents of the Sunshine State (with
the exception of submissions to the
Florida Nonfiction category, whose
authors may live elsewhere).
The Florida Book Awards competi-
tion is coordinated through The Flori-
da State University Libraries, with the
support of professors and librarians
across the FSU campus.
"In our first year, we had 71 entries;
in our second, 85; and in 2008, we
rocketed up to 135," said Florida
Book Awards Director Wayne Wie-
gand, a professor of Library and In-
formation Studies at FSU. "I think it's
fair to say Florida authors now know
about the Florida Book Awards and
that our future looks even brighter to-
day than when we launched the pro-
ject."
Co-sponsors of the competition 14
high-profile humanities organizations
from across the state are the Florida


State University Program in American
and Florida Studies; Friends of FSU
Libraries; Florida Center for the Book;
State Library and Archives of Florida;
Florida Historical Society; Florida Hu-
manities Council; Florida Literary
Arts Coalition; Florida Library Asso-
ciation; Governor's Family Literacy
Initiative; Florida Association for Me-
dia in Education; Florida Reading As-
sociation; Florida Center for the Liter-
ary Arts; Florida Chapter of the Mys-
tery Writers of America; and "Just
Read, Florida!"
The contest categories are General
Fiction, Young Adult Literature, Chil-
dren's Literature, Florida Nonfictioni,
Poetry, Popular Fiction, and Spanish-
Language Book.
Entries, which can be submitted by'
anyone (e.g. publisher, author or liter-
ary agent), must be professionally
published and have both an original
publication date between Jan. 1, 2009,
and Dec. 31, 2009, and an Internation-
al Standard Book Number (ISBN).
Although all entries must be re-
ceived no later than 5 p.m. on Mon-
day, Jan. 4, 2010 (this is not a post-
mark deadline), applicants are en-
couraged to submit their books into
competition any time during the 2009
calendar year and as soon as possible
after books are officially published.

DA121 ,I HT


FWC Officer of the Year


wins 2 additional awards


He pulled a woman
from a burning car, sav-
ing her life. He helped
capture a suspected
murderer. He arrested
people for night hunt-
ing, illegal fishing, lit-
tering, drug possession
and active felony war-
rants. He wrote 168 ci-
tations and warnings
last year, which is im-
pressive for the rural
county where he works.
Also, he was selected
as the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Of-
ficer of the Year earlier
this year. And now, Of-
ficer Bret Gill has two
new plaques to add to
his collection. Gill re-
cently won two presti-
gious awards from the
North American
Wildlife Enforcement
Officers Association.
The 8,000-member or-
ganization, made up of
fish and wildlife offi-
cers in the United States
and Canada, recently
held its annual confer-
ence in Moncton, New
Brunswick, Canada,
where it presented the
Torch Award and the
Life Saving Award to
Gill, based on his per-
formance in 2008.
The Torch Award is
presented to officers
who have worked in
law enforcement less
than five years and en-
courages professional
development. The offi-
cer has to'have demon-
strated a genuine desire
to protect, the resource
and develop profession-
ally. The officer also
must have demonstrat-
ed exceptional ability
and 'initiative in the per-
formance of duties. "Of-
ficer Gill definitely fits
the criteria for this
award," said Capt. Roy
Brown, area supervisor.
In 2005, Gill started
his career with the FWC
in Union County. "Offi-
cer Gill possesses a
uniquely patient inves-
tigative style that has
proved very successful.
If he catches a whisper
of a possible resource
violation, he doggedly
pursues all leads, leav-
ing no stone unturned,"
Brown said. The vari-
ety of Gill's impressive
caseload further,
demonstrates his initia-
tive and ability to get
the job done.
According to Brown,
before spring'turkey
season began, Gill was
flying with FWC pilot
Joe Johnston and locat-


ed a site baited for
turkeys with a blind
close by. Because the
site was so remote, he
had to walk more than
three miles to get to it.
On opening morning of
the spring gobbler sea-
son, he cited a subject
for hunting turkeys
over bait.
"Officer Gill assisted
the Union County Sher-
iff's Office with a man-
hunt for a murder sus-
pect. After tracking the
suspect for more than a
mile, he and a Depart-
ment of Corrections K-9
officer captured the sus-
pect," Brown said.
The officer also works
complaints from
landowners. Gill re-
ceived a complaint from
Plum Creek Timber Co.
about illegal dumping
on their lands. Gill in-
vestigated the com-
plaint and charged
subject with felony lit-
tering.
In November, Gill re-
ceived information of il-
legal hunting on a piece
of private land in Union
County. Gill made his
way to the hunt camp
on foot and set up sur-
veillance. After the
morning hunt, four
hunters returned to the
camp. One hunter was
on an ATV, dragging a
doe deer. Gill over-
heard one of the men
say he had shot another
doe and then left to re-
trieve it. A few minutes
later, the man returned
with the doe in tow.
Gill then made his pres-
ence known and
charged two subjects
with taking doe deer
put of season. A third
subject had warrants is-
sued out of Arkansas
for his arrest, and au-
thorities there wished
to extradite. The man
also had a felony war-
rant issued out of
Union County. He was
taken into custody.
"While he was making
this case, Bret was
watching the men so in-
tensely from his con-
cealed position that he
overlooked the 5-foot
rattlesnake he sat down
next to. If not for the
. cold weather that morn-
ing, the snake surely
would have bitten
him," Brown said.
Gill also saved a life,
earning him the Life-
saving Award from the
North American
Wildlife Enforcement
Officers Association.
SJuly 18, 2008, Gill was


off duty and in his per-
sonal vehicle. As he
drove through Lake
Butler, he saw a woman
running toward him in
her nightgown. The
woman told him about
a vehicle that had
crashed down the street
and was on fire. Gill
made his way to a pick-
up truck that had struck
a power pole and was
on fire. He called 9-1-1
for assistance and then
ran through a crowd of
spectators to the blaz-
ing vehicle to find the
driver pinned inside.
The driver was dead.
Gill went to the passen-
ger side and found a
woman alive, gasping
for air and flailing
about the cab. Her legs
were on fire. Gill forced
the door open and
pulled her out of the
burning vehicle. He
then rolled her on the
ground repeatedly to
extinguish the flames.
As Gill was doing
what he could to aid
the victim, the vehicle
exploded. "Apparently,
the gas tank and ammu-
nition stored in truck
exploded," Brown said.
"There were several by-
standers who said they
wouldn't have thought
of going near the truck
because they knew it
was going to explode."
The woman was
flown to Shands Burn
Center in critical condi-
tion. In the days follow-
ing the accident, the
victim, Michelle Davis
Brannen, 28, of Mac-
clenny, underwent
surgery to amputate
both of her legs. She
continues to improve
and make progress to-
ward recovery.
"Michelle, her family
and community have
repeatedly thanked Bret
for his actions. And
'.thanks to him, on Jan. 6,
Michelle celebrated her
29th birthday,"Bro.wn
said. "His actions were
above and beyond the
call of duty and de-
served special recogni-
tion.".
In addition to the
Lifesaving Award he
just received, Gill was
also awarded the FWC
Medal of Valor with
Lifesaving Commenda-
tion earlier this year.
"Officer Gill is a very
capable and profession-
al law enforcement offi-
cer," Brown said. "I'm
proud he's part of our
team."

Conserving Florida's imperiled

species: a high priority for FWC


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) strives
to provide conservation for Florida's
imperiled species. Achieving this goal
requires using a comprehensive man-
agement system, which includes a list-
ing process that is simple and under-
standable.
A team of FWC employees has been
working on draft rules to achieve this
goal as well as identify species that
need state intervention for survival.
The draft rules link species protections
to science, while using a balanced ap-
proach through collaboration and
partnerships.
The FWC welcomes public input
and comment before.the draft rules are
presented at the Sept. 9 Commission
meeting in Howey-in-the-Hills. A
public meeting will be held in late Au-


gust, so anyone interested can learn
more about the FWC's proposed man-
agement of endangered and threat-
ened species.
"We are committed to working with
anyone who's interested in providing
input as staff drafts rules that focus on
management of species," said Dr. Elsa
Haubold, leader of the imperiled
species listing team. "It is important
for the public to understand and sup-
port how we conserve imperiled
species."
The draft rules are available for re-
viewing and comment at
MyFWC.com/ WILDLIFEHABI-
TATS /imperiledSpp_index.htm. Pub-
lic comments on the draft rules will be
accepted at imperiled@MyFWC.com
until Sept. 9.

UF Vets use new technology


with Equine surgery


GAINESVILLE, Fla.
- Two horses at risk
for life-threatening
bleeding caused by an
uncommon infection of
the internal carotid
artery were successfully
treated recently.by Uni-
versity of Florida veteri-
narians who used cut-
ting-edge technology to
resolve the problem
faster and less invasive-
ly than traditional
surgery would allow.
"The problem both of
these horses had in-
volved a disease called
guttural pouch mycosis,
or a fungal infection in
the guttural pouch,"
said Herb Maisenbach-
er, V.M.D., an assistant
clinical professor of car-
diology at UF's Veteri-
nary Medical Center.
"The infection can eat
its way through the tis-
sues in the back of the
throat, potentially rup-
turing the arteries."
Typical symptoms in-
clude bleeding from the
nose, Maisenbacher
said. UF veterinarians
treated the first horse irt
October 2008, and the
second in May.
"One horse's red
blood cell count was ac-
tually dropping because
of the bleeding," he
said. "The other had
just one nose bleed. The
owners knew they
needed to do something
before it became life-
threatening."
Lynne Kimball-Davis
of Wellington recalled
the late October morn-
ing when she went to
feed her horse, a Dutch
warmblood named Up-
per Class, and discov-
ered him in his stall
bleeding profusely from


the nose.
"It looked like he had
been massacred," she
said. Kimball-Davis
rushed her horse to
Palm Beach Equine
Clinic, where veterinari-
ans determined a refer-
ral to UF was necessary.
"He was stabilized for
two days and then Sun-
day morning, we got
him up to Dr. (David)
Freeman," Kimball-
Davis said.
She added that Upper
Class returned home af-
ter about a week at UF,
and has made steady
progress since then.
"I'm getting ready to
show him in the fall
again," she said.
"Everyone has told me
he's perfectly fine now
and not to give his
problem a second
thought."
Freeman, an equine
surgeon, collaborated
with Maisenbacher's
cardiology team to treat.
both cases. In each case,
a device known as a,
vascular plug was in-
serted to occlude the at-
risk artery. Before that,
surgeons access the
carotid artery through a
small incision in the
neck and use a contrast
agent to find the dam-
aged vessels before
blocking them off.
"The affected area is
difficult to approach
surgically, but it's been
done before," Maisen-
bacher said. "Another
approach has been to
place multiple metallic
coils inside the vessel to
block the flow of blood.
What made our ap-
proach unique is that
we were able to make
the procedure go more


smoothly by using new-
er devices to achieve the
same result.", Freeman,
who has used all the
various treatments, fa-
vors the new approach.
"The minimally inva-
sive introduction of niti-
nol plugs seems the best
to me," he said. "It's
also a nice example of
teamwork between the
small and large animal
.hospitals that allows us
to make use of leading-
edge technologies that
benefit many species."
Maisenbacher said the
vascular plugs are made
for use in human medi-
cine, and are believed to
have only been used at
Purdue University's
veterinary school to
treat gutteral pouch my-
cosis in horses. Because
of the success UF has
had in treating dogs
with the devices,
Maisenbacher felt a sir-
ilar result might be
achieved in horses.
"Once the animals
wake up from anesthe-
sia, they are almost
back to their normal
selves," he said. "The
other advantage is that
the devices offer the
ability to access vessels
that by traditional
methods are'very diffi-
cult to get to. Plus, there
really is no other med-
ical treatment for this
condition." The proce-
dure takes between two
and three hours, he
added.

Center and treatments

FWC, officer's shooting reflects dangers of conservation law enforcement


If you ask law en-
forcement officers with
the Florida Fish 'and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
about their job, in the
mix of describing what
they do, they likely will
say they love the work
that they do. Their
work to protect natural
resources is important
and meaningful; they
want to contribute to
society and make their
community, state and
world a better place.
Undeniably, their jobs
are unique, rewarding
and adventurous, but
there is also an element
of danger. We were all
reminded recently of
how dangerous law en-.
forcement is, especially
conservation law en-
forcement, after FWC
Officer Vann Streety
was shot multiple times
while investigating a
suspicious situation and
attempting to arrest a

anything in
between safe.

by many law enforce-

the shooting, a Mel-

ficer caught the suspect
as he was breaking into
a vehicle.
While some may

evening he was shot
and assisted in the
search for the shooter.
We would also like to
thank the paramedics,
the hospital and other
medical personnel who

is a fine man, and we

FAMILY FEATURES


M other Nature can be unpredictable. Severe storms, floods, tornadoes and hurri-
canes can bring about potentially dangerous weather during the spring and
summer months. While you can't prevent them, you can be prepared for them.
The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), Energizer and 6,100 local fire depart-
ments urge people to get families ready for severe weather by preparing Power Through It All"
. emergency power kits.
"An emergency power kit can literally be a beacon of light in a storm," said Chief Larry
J. Grorud, CFO, MIFireE and president of 1AFC. "It's very important to have flashlights on
hand during-power outages; they are always safer than candles in these situations and can
significantly reduce a family's risk of injury."
"There is peace of mind in lighting the room, knowing you can stay in touch by charging
your cell phone and tracking the progress of the storm by radio," said Betsy Laakko, director
of marketing for Energizer. "A well-stocked power kit can help a family do all ('itLoi ililc "u


Important tips for building a Power Through It All kit:
* Include at least one
flashlight for every
member of the
household.
n Include a battery-
powered lantern for
illuminating larger
spaces and rooms.
m Include a battery-
operated weather
radio to track the
storm.


* Include extra bat-

for critical devices'
such as glucose

m Include battery-operated cell phone chargers and extra lithium batteries to keep your
family safe and connected during severe weather Lithium batteries are a smart addition
to a power kit because they have a storage life of 15 years and work in extreme tempera-
tures from -40�F to 1400F.
* Each year, when you change your clock in the spring, check the batteries in your flash-
lights and emergency power kit.
* Put the kit in a spot that is easily accessible to every family member.

Did you know?

Music therapy has been shown to help in the healing process of a variety of
ailments or conditions, be they physical or mental. Researchers at the Institute
for Music Therapy in Germany, for instance, studied the effects of music
therapy when used to treat children with developmental delay. Researchers
studied a group of 12 children between 4 and 6.5 years of age with
developmental ages between 1 to 3.5 years. They were able to note the effects
of musical therapy on the children' development, which showed significant
improvements, including better hearing and speech and improved hand-eye
coordination in the children after exposure to the therapy. Music therapy has
also proven effective in treating depression in older patients. A study by
researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine concluded that music
therapy showed great potential as a beneficial intervention for homebound
elderly people who have limited access to healthcare professionals.

UF's equine neonatal intensive care unit offers state-of-the-art care to foals suffering from a variety of ailments. - Photo courtesy UF


By Sarah Carey
When Ocala resident Irene Bryan's
Appaloosa mare, Skippa Secret, gave
birth to a premature foal last year, both
mother and baby needed immediate medical care.
Thanks to veterinarians at the University of Florida's
Hofmann Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, both-horses
survived.
"Our personal veterinarian, Dr. Andy Bennett,
responded to my call in the middle of the night,"
Bryan said. "Based on what he saw after coming out
and performing X-rays on site, he recommended that
we get both horses to the foal unit at UF as soon as
possible."
When Bryan arrived at UF's large animal hospital,
Bryan said veterinary emergency team members were
waiting for them outside the facility with a gurney.
"I was immediately impressed," she said. 'The
overall experience was very satisfying."
The foal was treated for eight days with
antimicrobials and supportive care for prematurity
and sepsis. In addition, Skippa Secret was
successfully treated fog a retained placenta. UF
veterinarians continue to monitor the pair's progress,
although both animals are successfully recuperating at
home.
'Meanwhile, Bryan's 9-year-old granddaughter, who
witnessed much of the horses' ordeal, has decided she
wants to become a veterinarian.
"The foal was a gift to my granddaughter so that
she could show her in halter competition through 4-
H," Bryan said. "She's now spending a lot of time
with the foal and hopes to learn more about veterinary
medicine because of this experience."
UF's neonatal intensive care unit, commonly
referred to as the "foal unit," was established in the
early 1980s and was the result of a unique partnership
between veterinary specialists and human
neonatologists at the UF Health Science Center.
Neonatology research at UF has been funded by the
Morris Animal Foundation and Florida's Pari-Mutuel
Trust Fund as well as by the Florida Thoroughbred


Breeders & Owners Association.
The state-of-the-art facility is staffed by board-
certified specialists who can provide immediate
medical attention and handle any level of care
quickly. The foal unit is Florida's only equine
neonatal ICU that provides treatment by board-
certified internists round-the clock for critically ill
foals and their dams, 365 days a year.
"We've got the crash cart ready to go," said Dana
Zimmel, D.V.M., a board-certified internist
specializing in equine medicine and an assistant
professor of large animal medicine at UF
Most foals treated at UF's foal unit are born
prematurely or are under a month old. Among the
most common ailments treated at the unit are bacterial
infections, which can produce clinical signs within the
first 24 hours after birth or the first month of life.
The vast majority of cases seen at UF's foal unit are
considered emergencies.
'"Primarily, we see foals with sepsis, or bacterial
infections in their bloodstream; foals which have
diarrhea or foals who have problems because they
suffer from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, or a
lack of oxygen around the time of birth," Zimmel
said. "Those foals, known as'dummy foals, appear
normal at first and then within the first 48 hours of
life they lose the ability to nurse. They also lose their
affinity for the mare and often progress to not being
able to stand and even experience seizures."
Many foals which have been treated for "dummy
foal syndrome" have gone on to become outstanding
athletes, Zimmel said. Strike the Gold, the 1991
Kentucky Derby winner, is just one example.
Thoroughbred breeding season takes place between .
Jan. 1 and June 30, but occasionally foals will be
admitted to UF in the fall months, Zimmel said. The
unit will accept patients from referring veterinarians
as well as from individual clients who would like to
bring their foals directly to UF's large animal hospital.
Anyone seeking more information about the foal
unit should call the large animal hospital front desk at
352-392-2229.

An out-of-control wildfire. - Photo: Submitted


New UF-housed wildfire 'strike team'



teaches safe burning techniques


GAINESVILLE-When it
comes to fighting fires, it's
usually the guy with the
hose that gets all the hero
worship. But as ever-
increasing temperatures
and droughts bring a
greater threat from
wildfires, sometimes it's
the guy with a torch who
can do the most good.
"Fire is an art," said
Parker Titus, a specialist
with more than 400
controlled burns on his
resume. "It's one of the
most powerful influences
on our natural systems.
Knowing how to use it -
and not let it get out of
control - is an essential
part of the conservation
effort."


This week, Titus and his
crew, the newly formed
Northeast Florida Resource
Management Support
Team, will be sharing that
knowledge with 40
students and public agency
employees.
The team will help teach
how to stay safe while
practicing controlled burns
as part of a.weeklong basic
wildland firefighter
training program
conducted by the
University of Florida, The
Nature Conservancy and
the Natural Areas Training
Academy.
The course will be a mix
of classroom instruction on
the UF campus and a day
of hands-on demonstration


at the Ordway-Swisher
Biological Station in
Putnam County, where the
team is housed.
"We have a full roster of
students and a long waiting
list," said Linda
Demetropoulos, the
training academy's
program manager. "This is
an issue that people who
work in settings like parks
and preserves need to
know about."
Controlled burns seek to
use fire to remove the
natural clutter that serves
as kindling for larger and
more dangerous wildfires.
Last year alone, 2,894
wildfires burned more than
100,000 acres in Florida.
One blaze resulted in


nearly $10 million in
property damage.
According to a report,
issued in an April edition
of the journal Science,
rising temperatures
associated with climate
change are increasing this
wildfire threat nationwide.
However, prescribed
burning is much more than
just a preventative
measure. Much of
Plorida's wildlife relies on
fire to renew natural
habitat. Species like the
gopher tortoise and the
Florida scrub jay rely on it.
"We live in balance
with nature, or we try to,"
said Zachary Prusak, state
.fire manager for the
conservancy. "Controlled


burning reduces the
intensity of wildfires and.
keeps our habitats healthy."
Managed by the
conservancy and supported


by UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences,
the team consists of Titus,
Andrew Rappe, Andrew
Slack and Daniel Godwin.
The four are responsible for
helping many public
agencies east of Interstate
75 from Orlando north to
the Georgia border.
Also charged with tasks
such as removing invasive
species and monitoring
wildlife, the crew has aided
in nearly 50 controlled
burs since it was
established roughly a year
ago with funds from a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
grant.
The typical tool used for
controlled burning is called
a drip torch, which looks a
bit like a pesticide sprayer
whose nozzle has been
swapped out with a
firelighter. This torch is
what most of the students
will be learning to use.
. The team also has a few
tools that aren't for
novices, such as a heavy-
duty pickup and ATV, both
equipped with mounted
torches and other
modifications. Then there
are the even less
conventional tools
sometimes employed to set
a controlled fire.
Titus says he's seen flare
pistols, bows loaded with
flaming arrows, helicopters
with flame throwers and
even torches carried
horseback.
"You use whatever you
have that will work well,"
he said. "But you never
forget that your first
priority is always safety."
