Chase ends east of Live Oak
By Jeff Waters
jeff.waters@gaflnews.com
A Lake City man who raced across Hamilton
and Suwannee counties in a stolen tow truck
was arrested east of Live Oak early Saturday,
sheriff's records show.
Alexander Jarrod Daies, 18, reportedly beat a
tow truck driver and stole the vehicle after the
man came to his assistance in Hamilton County
around 3:20 a.m.
Daies' vehicle was incapacitated and had been
retrieved by David E. Altman of Jennings.
Altman, 47, loaded Daies' vehicle onto his 2008
Ford truck and drove toward the intersection of
SR 6 and 1-75, where Daies was to be dropped off
at a convenience store.
However, about a mile from their destination,
Daies allegedly began hitting Altman in the face,

a step closer to reality

Legislation would permanently
recognize patriotism of local WWII vet
WASHINGTON, DC The House Committee
on Oversight and Government Reform has
unanimously passed legislation by
Congressman Ander Crenshaw to permanently
recognize the patriotism of World War II
veteran Clyde L. Hillhouse by designating the
White Springs Post Office in his honor. The bill,
introduced on Oct. 9 and co-sponsored by all
Florida House members, now moves to the
House floor for consideration.
"This is a fitting tribute for a heroic American
who proudly endured many sacrifices in the
name of our great country, and I look forward to
seeing the bill passed into law," said Crenshaw.
"While serving in the U.S. Army Air Corps, the
late Clyde L. Hillhouse helped defend

forcing him to stop. Altman was
forced out of the truck and Daies
fled south on 1-75, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol, his
disabled SUV loaded onto
Altman's rollback rig.
Trooper Brian Creech spotted
the vehicle and followed it from
1-75 to US 129 after a BOLO (be
on the look out) was broadcast.
Creech tried stopping the
vehicle as it exited 1-75 and
entered US 129 South towards
Live Oak, but Daies refused to
stop, reports show. FHP said a
chase ensued at speeds up to 80
miles per hour.
Suwannee County Sheriff
Tony Cameron said his deputies
deployed stop sticks just north of
the US 129/I-10 interchange
north of Live Oak. The truck's
right front tire struck the sticks,
but the vehicle continued on US
129 before turning left onto US
90 East in Live Oak.
Cameron said the vehicle
continued down US 90 for about
five miles before stopping.
"It was a very dangerous
situation with a tow truck that
was carrying a disabled vehicle,"
said Cameron. "It could have
been very serious. But the
deputies did a good job with the
stop sticks and with getting him
through town without further
endangering the population."
Daies was charged by FHP
with fleeing and attempting to
elude law enforcement and
driving on a learner's license.
Additional charges are being
filed in Hamilton and Suwannee
counties, authorities say.
Assisting in the chase and
arrest were Hamilton County
Sheriff's Office, Jasper Police
Department, Live Oak Police
Department and the Suwannee
County Sheriff's Office.

the property recovered. I cannot
stress enough how much the coopera-

as this. We could not do it without


the tips and information we get from
all of you.
The Neighborhood Watch "Night

would really like to thank all the peo-
ple that helped put it together and the
ones who took part and enjoyed some

Economic myths and irrelevancy


Steve H. Hanke is a Professor of
Applied Economics at Johns Hopkins
University in Baltimore and Senior
Fellow at the Cato Institute in Wash-
ington, D.C., and writes frequently
for Globe Asia and Forbes magazine.
Professor Hanke starts off his "Hu
versus Sarkozy" article (Globe Asia,
November 2009) with a warning.
There is no more reliable rule than
the 95 percent rule: 95 percent of
what you read about economics and
finance is either wrong or irrelevant.
The article contrasts the Chinese ver-
sus the French responses to the finan-
cial crisis but the major focus is on
economic myths.
Hanke says that the most repeated
statement about the cause of the U.S.
Great Depression is that it was
caused by the October 1929 stock
market crash. How could that be? By
April 1930, the stock market had re-
covered to its pre-crash level. What is

Bank that led to the contraction of the
money supply by 25 percent. Then,
the name of saving jobs, Congress en-
acted the Smoot-Hawley Act in June
1930, which increased U.S. tariffs by
more than 50 percent. Other nations
retaliated and world trade collapsed.
U.S. unemployment rose from 8 per-
cent in 1930 to 25 percent in 1933. In
1932, the Herbert Hoover administra-
tion and a Democratic Congress im-
posed the largest tax increase in U.S.
history, raising the top tax rate on in-


come from 25 percent
to 63 percent. The Roo-

followed these destruc-

Deal legislation that
massively regulated
the economy and ex-

War II.
Have today's politi-


cians and their
economic advisers
learned anything
from yesteryear's
policy that turned
what would have
been a short,
sharp downturn
in the economy
into a 16-year af-
fair? The answer


is very little. Professor Hanke argues
that the chief enabler of both the
Great Depression and our latest eco-
nomic downturn is the Federal Re-
serve Bank, who sees itself as Ameri-
ca's systemic risk regulator. This is
the world upside down, Hanke ex-
plains: The Federal Reserve is the
systemic risk.
How about a bit of history? Be-
tween 1787 and 1930, our nation has
seen both mild and severe economic
downturns, sometimes called Panics,
that have ranged from one to seven
years. During that interval, there was
no thought that Congress or the pres-
ident should intervene in the econo-
my to enact stimulus packages, jobs
programs or massive corporate hand-
outs. Probably, the reason that no one
thought to do so was that there was
no constitutional authority to do so.
It took the Herbert Hoover and
Franklin Roosevelt administrations to

tervene in the economy and, with the
help of a frightened, derelict U.S.
Supreme Court, turn what might
have been a two- or three-year sharp
downturn into our longest depres-
sion.
Professor Hanke says that the les-
son to be drawn from business cycle
history is that, if left to run their nat-
ural course, severe downturns are fol-
lowed by rapid snapbacks. The 1921
recession is a good example where
wholesale prices, industrial produc-
tion and manufacturing employment
fell by 30 percent or more and
reached their low in mid-1921. There
was little government intervention, at
least by today's standards, and the
economy recovered naturally; and by
early 1922, it had fully recovered and
the nation was off to the Roaring
Twenties.
The bottom line is that the idea that
government bureaucrats have enough
knowledge to manage an economy
well is the height of conceit what
Nobel Laureate Friedrich Hayek
called the "fatal conceit."

But you say, "My pastor has
very little education." Listen,
what makes a man of God?
Think for a moment. His de-
gree or the call of God upon
his life? We are in a day when
churches are looking for pas-
tors they are more interested
in a man's degrees than they
are whether or not God called
him into the ministry. If God
has called him, He will equip
him for the job He wants him
to do! Right?
As a young preacher one of
the best preachers I had ever
had the opportunity to fellow-
ship with was in his 70's and I
will never forget how he en-
couraged me to go on and get
my education. He said he did
finish high school getting his
diploma at Stetson back when
it was still a Bible believing,


Bible teaching Southern Bap-
tist school; but he never went
any further in his education.
He told me about an inci-
dent where a church was in-
terested in calling him as pas-
tor but as the men took him
out to show him "the field,"
after he had preached on a
particular Sunday morning,
and engaged him in a discus-
sion they found out he didn't
have a "degree." All of a sud-
den their desire to have him
as their pastor turned cold.
Lord give our churches men
filled with the Holy Spirit!
Now if they have formal edu-
cations that may-or-may-not
be a plus, depending on how
they use it, but they must let
God have His way in their
lives. This is the kind of man
you and your family need to
go to for counseling.

Now if you need medication
for a mental health issue you
will have to see a psychiatrist
because only an MD can pre-
scribe medication for things
like depression, ADHD, anxi-
ety, Post Traumatic Stress Syn-
drome, etc. Much of the coun-
seling a pastor does will be
done during his regular mes-
sages as he preaches on Sun-
days and Wednesday
evenings, so if you attend
your church regularly you'll
get a lot of counseling without
having to even make an ap-
pointment with your pastor.
But you need to rely on the
man of God for counseling.
Remember "The counsel of the
Lord standeth for ever..."
(Psalm 33:11).

Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theatre presents

"Alice in Wonderland" November 7 at NFCC


Submitted
MADISON, FL-- Award-winning Bits 'N Pieces Pup-
pet Theatre is bringing its splendiferous giant puppet
musical, Alice in Wonderland, to North Florida Com-
munity College's Van H. Priest Auditorium on Satur-
day, November 7 for a public performance beginning at
2:30 p.m. This larger-than-life musical boasts a mix of
jumbo nine-foot-tall body puppets, costumed charac-
ters, traditional puppetry, as well as children from the
audience. The play lasts approximately one hour and is
appropriate for children up to age 10 or grades K-3rd.
When Alice escapes her boredom of this world to
venture into a dream of another, madcap high jinks and
outlandish adventures are the order of the day in Lewis
Carroll's mythical setting, Wonderland. Our heroine
learns it takes self-reliance and quick thinking to tame
the comic nonsense of the Queen of Hearts, the
Cheshire Cat, and Wonderland's other unpredictable
residents.
Bits 'N Pieces Theatre has been creating original mu-


sical productions adapted from classic children's litera-
ture for more than 25 years. Headquartered in Tampa,
Florida, the giant puppets ensemble spends most of the
year on national tour while its classic hand puppets and
marionettes perform year-round at Puppetworld in
Tampa. For more information about Bits (EN Pieces
Puppet Theatre or to access the Alice in Wonderland
study guide, visit www.puppetworld.com.
Don't miss Alice in Wonderland at NFCC on Satur-
day, November 7, 2:30 p.m. Tickets, $3 children and $5
adults, will be sold at the door (Van H. Priest Auditori-
um) on Nov. 7 beginning at 1 p.m. Call (850) 973-1653 or
email ArtistSeries@nfcc.edu for more information.
The performance is sponsored in part by the State of
Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Af-
fairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the National En-
dowment for the Arts as well as the NFCC Artist Series
Angels program, a non-profit, tax exempt organization
striving to provide cultural enrichment opportunities to
the community.

Coordinator

It's that time of year
again! Medicare's Annu-
al Enrollment Period for
the Part D: Prescription
Drug Plans is from No-
vember 15th to December
31st. Chances are that
you will see an increase
in your plan premium,
deductible, drug costs
and changes in your plan
formulary for 2010.
By now you should
have received informa-
tion from your current
plan on the changes to
expect in 2010. This in-
formation only tells you
how much your drugs
will cost in the Initial
Coverage. Do you know
how to calculate just how


much your plan premi-
um, deductible and drugs
will cost you for the
whole year?
To begin with, most
low cost plans will re-
quire up to a $310 de-
ductible (Pre-initial Cov-
erage). This means that
you will be paying full
cost for your drugs until
the deductible is met.
Once that deductible is
met (or you do not have a
deductible), you will
reach Initial Coverage. In
this level you will pay, on
the average, 25% of the
cost of your drugs. BUT,
the system calculates the
cost of your drugs at full
cost to determine when
you reach the Gap.
For 2010, the Gap (Post-
initial Coverage) begins
when the full cost your


SA


drug reach $2,830. Re-
member, this is arrived
from calculating the full
cost of the drugs you pur-
chase. Once you hit the
Gap, you will pay full
price for your drugs until
you reach $4,550 out-of-
pocket costs for your
drugs. Confused yet?
The last Part D level is
Catastrophic. Once you
have paid $4,550 in out-
of-pocket drug costs, you
will reach this level.
Medicare beneficiaries
that are assigned a plan
by Medicare should have
a plan check-up. You
need to find out if your
assigned plan will cover
your drugs (on the plan's
formulary) so you won't
be paying a high price for
any of your drugs.
In 2010, there are 47


FA~RMrr~r
BUEAU


stand-alone drug plans in
the State of Florida.
Medicare provides a Plan
Finder Tool at
www.Medicare.gov to as-
sist you in figuring out
which plan will cover
your drugs at the least
cost to you. If you do not
have access to a computer
or need help in under-
standing this program,
please call 1-800-262-2243
to be referred to a SHINE
volunteer near you.
SHINE is a volunteer pro-
gram with the FL Dept of
Elder Affairs offering free,
unbiased, and confiden-
tial assistance to help you
understand your Part D
options as well as
Medicare,
Medicare/Medicaid and
Supplemental Insurance.
Through Social Securi-
ty, there is a program to
help low income benefi-
ciaries with the plan pre-
mium, deductible, and
cost of your drugs called
Extra Help or Low In-
come Subsidy (LIS). You
will have no Gap when
you have Extra Help
(LIS). If you have full
Medicaid, the state is
paying for your Medicare
Part B, or if you are re-
ceiving SSI, you automat-
ically receive LIS status.
If you are (in 2009):

Single Income is
$16,248 or less. Assets to-
tal $12,510 or less
Couple Income is
$21,864 or less. Assets to-
tal $25,010 or less.

Assets do not count
your home, the land your
home is on or your vehi-
cles. They do count all
your cash in the bank,
CDs, stocks, bonds, annu-
ities, cash value on your
life insurance policies,
and any additional real
property. Please ask for
an application.
During the Gap there
may be programs that
will help you to pay for
your drugs. The Florida

Lady Trojans 2009 Volleyball season comes to an end


Submitted by Donna
Beauchamp
The 2009 Lady Trojan
Volleyball season came
to a close on Tuesday,
October 27th.
The ladies played in
the district tournaments
at Maclay High in Talla-
hassee this past week.
The Lady Trojans made
it to the second round of
play after defeating Jef-
ferson County. During
the second round the
ladies were defeated by
Maclay; the number one
team in the district.
Despite the loss, the
Lady Trojans played an
amazing game. Coach
Hannah Perez said, "I
knew going into this
season that it would be
a time for building and
strongly feel a solid
foundation has been
laid for an outstanding


season next year. Ten of
the eleven girls will be
returning with the expe-
rience to take them to
the next level." Coach
Perez went on to say,
"I'd like to take this op-
portunity to thank JV
Coach Kim Fenneman
for her assistance,
Nicole Hunter for keep-
ing records, and student
volunteer Paul Umstead
for his assistance and
announcing the games.
A special thank you
goes to Rick and Man-
tha Young for providing
Gatorade for the team
during games and to the
parents, families, and
fans for their support.
Last, but not least, a
most special thanks,
with love, to my hus-
band Ruben Perez for
his support and help.
See you next year!"

Find wildlife hidden
in your yard

By Jessica Basham

When you look out the window,
you probably see trees, bushes and
sometimes birds eating wild seeds or
berries. But what if you go outside
and look about? Do you see ants
crawling on the ground? Maybe a
butterfly sitting on a flower? Did you
know there are many kinds of animals
you cannot see unless you look really
hard?
All sorts of animals big and small
live in your backyard. Some fly, some
crawl, some jump, and some slither.
They live under rocks, logs and
leaves; up in bushes or trees; near wa-
ter; and in holes in the ground and
cracks in your house.
For your first Backyard Safari, look
under a plant's leaves, especially if
they look as if something chewed on
them. This is where caterpillars hang
out. They look like worms with many
legs. Some caterpillars look hairy,
while others are smooth. Caterpillars
change into pretty butterflies or
moths. Leaves hide caterpillars from
birds that might want to eat them for
lunch.


Unless you know what kind of
caterpillar you are looking at, do not
touch it. Sometimes the ones that look
furry are prickly. They could be poiso-
nous.
Ask an adult to help you turn over
a log or large stone (be sure to turn
the log toward you in case there is a
snake hiding underneath). It is not
hard to find a beetle because there are
many different ones. In fact, they are
the largest group of insects on Earth.
Look for the bugs with biting mouths
and hard front wings that protect
them.
Some beetles help people by using
their jaws to eat tiny critters that chew
on flowers or dine on vegetable gar-
dens. Other beetles are pests because
they eat the food people grow.
Beetles lay their eggs in dead, fallen
trees or logs. When you turned the
log over, did you also see tiny, white,
squishy "worms" wriggling around?
These grubs are baby beetles. Other
animals and bugs that call logs and
fallen trees home are pill bugs (roly-
polies), ants, salamanders, lizards,
frogs, earthworms, termites and cen-
tipedes.
Fill out a calendar Join the Get
Outdoors Florida! movement. Make a
monthly list of animals in your yard.
See if you can name each one. Maybe
draw a picture of them. If you have a
magnifying glass, that will help you
find and describe the tiny creatures.
By writing down what you see every
month, you will learn when Florida
animals are the busiest.
Be a safe backyard detective and
never pick up animals unless an adult
is with you. Never pick up a spider.
Spiders bite, and a few are poisonous
to people. Remember to return any-
thing collected for study to its home.
Happy critter hunting!

scribed in that certain Warranty Deed to

wife, dated February 28, 1977, recorded
in Official Record Book 132, Page 868;

Northwest corner of the land described in
the aforesaid deed to Cecil L. Gornto and
Florence Gornto, his wife, recorded in Of-
ficial Record Book 132, Page 868; thence
run South, along the East line of said Lot
12, being also the West line of the lands
described in the aforesaid deed to Cecil
L. Gornto and Florence Gornto, his wife,
recorded in Official Record Book 132,
Page 868, a distance of 200.00 feet, more
or less, to the POINT OF BEGINNING;
and being bounded as follows: On the
East by the lands of Cecil L. Gornto and
Florence Gornto, his wife; on the South
by Rice Street which is also known as 3rd
Street, Southwest; on the West by other
lands of Grantor; and, on the North by
lands of Jasper Laundry and Dry Clean-
ers, Inc.
Plaintiffs are residents of Hamilton Coun-
ty, Florida and claim title to said property
and deraigns title as follows:

(a) Certificate of Title executed by Clerk of
Circuit Court of Hamilton County, Florida
to Cecil L. Gornto and Florence Gornto,
his wife recorded July 26, 1991 in Official
Records Book 288, Page 183 in the Pub-
lic Records of Hamilton County, Florida

(Exhibit "B").
4. Plaintiff has paid taxes on the subject
property and has possessed, maintained,
enjoyed the use of and otherwise have
had open, exclusive and continuous pos-


session of said property since July 26,
1991 and has had no challenge or dispute
from any person or persons as to their
ownership of the property.

5. Any and all claims, right, title or interest
of Defendants to the real property de-
scribed herein above have been extin-
guished by the Certificate of Title de-
scribed herein; and Plaintiff is the true
record title owner to the real property and
the legal and equitable owner thereof in
fee simple, and as such, are entitled to
have their title to the real property quieted
and confirmed by the court under provi-
sions of Florida Statute 65.061.

6. Defendants' last known addresses are:

(a) W. B. Lewis, unknown
(b) Pauline Lewis, unknown
(c) Richard P. McPherson, unknown
(d) Mary V. McPherson, unknown

7. Plaintiff has made a diligent search and
inquiry to ascertain the whereabouts of


Defendants and have discovered that
there is no current known address for De-
fendants and Plaintiff has been unable to
locate them. (See Affidavit of diligent
Search and Inquiry attached hereto as
Exhibit "C").

8. It is not known whether Defendant(s)
are dead or alive. All defendants are over
the age of eighteen years.

9. The subject property was conveyed to
W. B. Lewis and Pauline Lewis by virtue
of Warranty Deed recorded April 18,
1944, in Deed Book 196, Page 27, of the
Public Records of Hamilton County, Flori-
da (Exhibit "D"). Thereafter, a Life Estate
interest was conveyed by Mallory and
Mae Belle Tuten to Defendant, Richard P.
McPherson and his wife, Mary V. McPher-
son, by virtue of Warranty Deed recorded
September 24, 1948, in Deed Book 33,
Page 272, said Public Records of Hamil-
ton County Florida (Exhibit "E"). After dill-
gent search of the Public Records of
Hamilton County, a deed to deraign title to
Mallory and Mae Belle Tuten, cannot be
located, which creates a cloud on the title
of the subject property Also, a deed relin-
quishing the life estate interest of Defen-
dant, Richard P. McPherson and Mary V.
McPherson, could not be located which
creates a cloud on the title to subject
property

10. Plaintiff is the proper person to have
the property in her name in fee simple
and be free of any cloud on title.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays as follows:
A. That upon final hearing the fee simple
title to the above described property be
adjudged to be in Plaintiff;

B. That Defendants, each of them, be re-
quired to set forth the nature of their
claims in and to said property and that all
adverse claims by Defendants or those
claiming by, through, under or against
them be determined by judgment of this
court be null and void;
C. That all right, title and interests of De-
fendants and those parties claiming by,
through, under or against them be forev-
er quieted and confirmed in Plaintiff;

D. That Defendants and those parties
claiming by, through, under, or against
them be perpetually enjoined from ascer-
taining any right, title, or interest in and to
the above described property;

E. That this Court grant such other relief
as it deems appropriate.

Under penalties of perjury, I declare that I
have read the foregoing and the facts al-
leged are true, to the best of our knowl-
edge and belief.
