Water towers, having served
well for half a century,
finally meet their demise
By Jo Ross
A pair of water towers that have graced the
horizon for better than the past 50 years in Jasper
have met their demise.
Department of Environmental Protection
Inspectors told city officials earlier this year that the
rusty reminders of days gone by were a hazard and
needed to be removed.
Construction workers began the difficult and
dangerous job of dismantling and lowering the
metal giants on Monday. Workers dissected huge
pieces of the tower at the Water and Sewage Plant
and lowered them to the ground by crane.
On Tuesday, the workers toppled the second
tower, which stood near the old ESP warehouse.
Toppling the second tower was an option because of
the expanse of land for it to fall on.

Florida Gateway RV Resort officially opened
its gates last week. The million dollar project
began almost three years ago when Raj Doobay
purchased a pristine 50-acre tract bordering I-

The Resort currently features two beautifully
appointed bath/laundry houses, and a 3,500
square foot clubhouse, which was constructed
at a cost of $350,000. The entire resort was
designed and constructed with the comfort and
ease of the visitor in mind. All campsites are
pull-through, and feature sewage, electric, cable
television, and Wi-Fi for a full-service

Smoking back
and remem-
'bering friends
and family can often
be a bittersweet affair.
Fond memories can
S evoke laughter and
tears at the same time.
-. Remembrances of Bar-
bara Beauchamp at last weekend's dedication of he.r
memorial fountain at the Stephen Foster Park did
evoke a few tears but the laughter of children and
the smiles and fond greetings of family and friends
were what really set the tone for a beautiful ceremoC-
ny. The Beauchamp family was there in far too great
an abundance to mention all the names. What a
wonderful family they are. Dennis Price did a terrif-
ic job of spearheading and organizing this celebra-
tion and many folks helped. A large and apprecia-
tive crowd from White Springs and a contingent of
folks from all over Florida listened to personal re-
membrances of friends and family and to letters that
were sent from many a distinguished folklorist who
got their start under Barbara Beauchamp. She was
fondly remembered that day and shall be for many
years to come by everyone who chances upon this
lovely, peaceful, memorial fountain\site.
This Saturday is going to be an eventful day in
White Springs. The third "Come to the River Heal-
ing Arts Festival" will take place at the Foster Park


Saturday-pe member 19, 2009 10am - 4pm. The
theme for this y a gathering is "Discover the Na-
ture of Your Heart" leading health and wellness
practitioners will rese t free mini seminars
throughout the day, include ing use of natural reme-
dies and I'm told there will be over 30 vendors offer-
ing healthy products, hypnotherapy, massage,
acupuncture, chiropractics, art, photography, pot-
tery, herbs, rocks, shells and hand crafted items will
be on hand in the Craft Square area near the main
stage. Food and music, too!
Speaking of music, The White Springs Folk Club
kicks off its fifth season at the Telford Hotel, Satur-
day evening at 7:30.
The Rodeo Rhythm Kings perform authentic, good,
ol' cowboy tunes the way folks best remembered
them: On the big screen, sung by Hollywood Idols
like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, The Sons of the Pio-
neers and more. The Folk club says that "This is a
Customized Cowboy Phenomenon, A Guaranteed
Ruckus of a Good Time". Tickets go on sale at the
door at 6:30PM the night of the performance. Call
386-269-0056 for more information.
Chief of Police Ken Brookins asked that I remind
you of the White Springs Neighborhood Watch
meeting, Thursday, September 17th at 6:30pm at the
White Springs Community Center.
Lei Lani Davis, who conducts some wonderful
herb workshops in White Springs from time to time,
says that she has goldenrod blooming and according


to her friend Judy Pruitt that means there will be
frost in 6 weeks. That would mean that we would
have frost around October the 24th. Let's see what
happens.
White Springs joins-much of our area in mourning
the passing of Rev. E.F. (Ed) Montgomery, Jr., Lake
City. Rev. Montgomery served as pastor of Jasper
Presbyterian Church and, later, as pastor of First
Presbyterian Church, Lake City, for a number of
years. On a number of occasions, he spoke here at
White Springs Presbyterian Church and served as
pastor of the small congregation when he pastored
in Jasper. Rev. Montgomery's wife, Mrs. E.F. (June)
Montgomery, Jr., a prominent musician and author,'
has lent her considerable talents on any number of
occasions playing the carillon here at Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State Park. Rev. Montgomery's.
mother, the late Mrs. E.F. (Margaret) Montgomery,
Sr., was a prominent member of the Florida Federa-
tion of ,Music Clubs and worked tirelessly along
with the late Mrs. W.A. (Lillian) Saunders, Sr., White
Springs, in the establishment of the Stephen Foster
Memorial, now Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center
State Park. The family has the prayers of our com-
munity.
I hope to see you out and about enjoying life in
White Springs.

As a single parent of Kade
anrd Kyndel, I want to thank
you from the bottom of my
heart for all your prayers,
support and donations.
As you all know, our lives
have taken a turn in a differ-
ent direction. My son Kade
is fighting for his life in a
long battle with leukemia.
We are taking many trips
weekly to Shands of UF for
chemo treatments, blood
transfusions and doctors'
appointments. Unfortunate-
ly, this will be a two and
one-half to three year
process for Kade.
This all has been very
overwhelming at times; but


knowing so many people
are praying and standing
behind him has truly been
uplifting. You all are the
reason I can afford to get
my son the treatment he
needs. It's been absolutely
amazing how the communi-
ty and people have come to-
gether to help in such an
emotional and difficult
time.
I want all of you to know
that you are helping Kade
fight for his life and over-
come this battle. I can't
thank you enough. May
God bless you all!!
The account at FFSB un-
der Kade Lanier Founda-


tion and Stade Lanier will
remain open throughout
-this long process. Thank
, you again. "God brought us
to it, he'll bring us through
it."
Thanks and may God
bless you,
Stacie, Kade & family

OPINION


Education


Instead of President Obama ad-
dressing school students across the
nation, he might have accomplished
more by focusing his attention on the
educational rot in schools in the na-
tion's capital. The American Legisla-
tive Exchange Council recently came
out with their 15th edition of "Report
Card on American Education: A State-
by-State Analysis." Academic achieve-
ment in no state is much to write
home about but in Washington, D.C.,
by any measure, it approaches crimi-
nal fraud. Let's look at the numbers.
Only 14 percent of Washington's
fourth-graders score at or above profi-
ciency in the reading and math por-
tions of the National Assessment of
Educational Progress (NAEP) test.
Their national rank of 51 makes them
the nation's worst. Eighth-graders are
even further behind with only 12 per-
cent scoring at or above proficiency in
reading and 8 percent in math and
again the worst performance in the
nation. One shouldn't be surprised by
Washington student performance on
college admissions tests. They have an
average composite SAT score of 925
and ACT score of 19.1, compared to
the national average respectively of
1017 and 21.1. In terms of national
ranking, their SAT and ACT rankings
are identical to their fourth- and
eighth-grade rankings -- dead last.
Washington's political and educa-
tion establishment might excuse these
outcomes by arguing that because
most students are black, the schools
are underfunded and overcrowded.
Let's look at such a claim. During the


2006-07 academic
year, expendi-
tures per pupil
averaged $13,848
compared to a
national average
of $9,389. That
made Washing-
ton's per pupil EL 02
expenditures the BY WALTI
third highest in
the nation coming in behind New Jer-
sey ($14,998) and New York ($14,747).
Washington's teacher-studentratio is.
13.9 compared with the national aver-
age of 15.3 students per teacher, rank-
ing 18th in the nation. What about
teacher salaries? Washington's teach-
ers are the highest paid in the nation,
having an average annual salary of
$61,195 compared with the nation's
average $46,593. Despite the academic
performance of Washington's stu-
dents, they have a graduation rate of
61 percent compared to the national
average of 70 percent. That suggests
the issuance of fraudulent high school
diplomas.
Currently, Washington, D.C. has an
Opportunity Scholarship Program,

their choice. Oba-

Congress, acting
on the behalf of
the education es-

killed the program
and there's the
possibility that the
1,700 students

choice are hypocrites. They want, de-
mand and can afford school choice for
themselves but for others not so afflu-

ington's most prestigious Sidwell
Friends School, forking over $28,000 a
year for each girl. Whilst senator from

Hello, again, 4 will try to get a

kind enough to tell me you miss it, that gives me
an incentive and I do love to do it, guess I just get
slower as I get older, and I do NEED to hear from

School is again in session, times are a little more
active with school programs, etc., games. Those of
us who in years past were always there, enjoying
our being together and visiting, as well as seeing
the games, have slowed down quite a bit, glad to
see parents and friends are still supporting our
'children' and friends. It just dawned on me that
my times of attending ball games slowed down
considerably after getting knocked down and suf-
fering a broken hip at a game, and I wasn't even in
on the action. I wonder who won the ball game
that night, I am sure Dr. Mickler could tell us, Dr.
Bembry was there and he attended to me that
night, and thereafter, and got in touch with Dr.
Branch in Valdosta (he was also at a ball game) and
they saw me through the or-deal, I have not had
any bad repercussions from this, just as I get older
and slower. It seems I had most of my worst
health problems in earlier years, so now all I have
to deal with is old age, for which I am thankful,
and -if J don't remember your name when I see
you, understand this goes with the aging process,
and I will understand if you don' t remember my
name either.

and 45 percent of senators in the 110th
Congress sent their children to private
schools. Public school teachers enroll
their own children in nonpublic
schools to a mach greaLer extent than
the general public, in some cases four
and five times greater. In Cincinnati,
about 41 percent of public school
teachers send their children to non-
public schools. In Chicago it is 38 per-
cent, Los Angeles 24 percent, New
York 32 percent, and Philadelphia 44
percent. The behavior of public school
teachers is quite suggestive. It's like
my offering to take you to a restaurant
and you find out that neither the chef
nor the waiters eat there. That sug-
gests they have some inside informa-
tion from which you might benefit.
For people in power to tolerate the
Washington, D.C. school system is de-
spicable. For a black president to do
so might qualify as betrayal.

more tired. They would be missed as well as the
"meals, we have friends from Live Oak who come
over often on Sundays, there are many others from
out of town and county who like to come here to
eat at H&F.
Although he moved to Lake City a number of
years ago, Rev. Ed Montgomery and his family
have been an important part of our community for
many years. Rev. Ed passed away in Lake City last
week and the service was held at First Presbyterian
Church, Lake City on Saturday. ED was pastor
here when we moved to Jasper, he baptized Benjy,
performed the marriage ceremony of my sister and
buried our baby girl, he will always hold a special
place in our hearts, as well as of many of you. His
brother, James, continues to fill our pulpit on many
occasions. His wife, June, taught piano to some of
you, also.
We attended the 9/11 memorial service on Fri-
day morning, Lamar Royal conducted the service
as he said Greg Godwin was reported to have the
flu. Hope he is better. THE service was a great
tribute to all of our officers of whatever rank or po-
sition, place of service. Fire trucks, firemen, police
officers, emergency staff, City and County, were
on hand with vehicles to represent our local forces.
We do appreciate all of their efforts to keep us safe.
Having breakfast at Hardee's after the service,
we were reminded that Woman's Club will be re-
convening in October, as Nancy Cozard had to
leave to allow someone to rent the Club House for
a birthday party. The Club House is available and
is a great place for a party when you do not have
time to have something at your home, or decorate.
Nancy Buchanan will be returning to her home
in Kentucky after spending several days in Jasper
visiting with her sister, Jo Coe, and other relatives.
Thanks to all of you, and to the JASPER NEWS
for your patience with me. Hope to hear from you
SOON.

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:
Once again a city council meeting was held for the pleasure of our five
elected (and appointed) city council members. Ms. Rozier began by thank-
ing those there for attending. Why? We will never know. She mumbled
something about public input, something that no longer is allowed at the
meetings. The large crowd of the public present was all but prohibited
from speaking by the chairperson. Any who dared were threatened with
eviction from the meeting by force.
I was fortunate that I had been aware of the agenda and had submitted
a request to speak prior to the meeting. When I found another area of con-
cern I submitted a second request to speak only to be told I have, already
had my three minutes for the evening. Basically, that citizen input was no
longer either needed or wanted by the city council was the message re-
ceived loud and clear by all present. Even those unable to hear or re-
questing clarification of something confusing were threatened with expul-
sion.
During the meeting it was decided that the city will no longer use the
services of the state attorney to prosecute violations of city ordinances.
This effectively makes all violations that were criminal now civil with the
maximum penalty being a fine. No jail regardless what one does. Drink al-
cohol and play your stereo loud in a city park at 3 a.m. It's only a fine.
Have a party loud enough to be heard a mile away, it's only a fine. Sell
liquor (if you are licensed) after the midnight curfew. It's only a fine and
you would probably make more than the fine anyway.
The current city' council has consistently ignored the will of the people
it was elected to serve. We have no code enforcement, no zoning and now
no teeth in our ordinances. To top that off, water, sewer, trash and gas
rates are going up because the council is kowtowing to the landlords of the
city by failing to make them responsible for their tenants services. Rent,
skip without paying a bill and the city writes it off. The homeowners
make up the slack with higher rates. The landlord rents to a new tenant.
How long are we going to be dictated to by those we elect to act in our
interest? I urge everyone to contact your council person and let them
know you are not happy with the dictatorial stance of the council and it's
working against the good of the people. Attend the council meetings,
make your wishes know. Until you do you will not be governed, you will
be dictated to.
Yours truly,
Bob Clark

Happy 92nd Birthday Evelyn Singletary 91st Birthday Wishes, Gussie A. Robinson!


Belleville resident Evelyn Singletary
will turn 92 years young on Friday,
September 18th. She celebrated her
birthday this year with her annual
birthday party at the SREC Senior Cen-
ter (formerly Hamilton County Council
on Aging) with her friends on Wednes-
day.
Much to Evelyn's surprise, her
friends and family at the Belleville Vol-
unteer Fire Department honored Eve-
lyn after their meeting last week with
cake and accolades as they celebrated


not only her birthday, but all the
tremendous volunteer work she does
for her community.
"It's nice to have people remember
my birthday," says Evelyn, "But it's bet-
ter when they remember to help our
firehouse and firefighters. Chief De-
Rocco does so much for so many'with
so little. I want everyone to get behind
him and help support our firehouse."
Happy birthday to a lady that is full
of energy and vitality as she puts oth-
ers above herself!

by the victim and
witnesses as the
shooter and was taken
into custody without
incident, reports
indicate.
According to
witnesses, a group had
gathered and after a
verbal exchange,
Harris began to walk
away. As he
approached houses on


5th Street Southwest,
he allegedly pulled a
gun and began firing at
the crowd. The victim
and others attempted
to duck into bushes
and shrubbery, but the
female was hit.
Harris remains in the
Hamilton County Jail,
charged with five
counts of aggravated
assault, one count of
aggravated battery,
one count attempted


felony murder and one
count of possession of
a firearm by a
convicted felon. He is

experience, and the
entire Resort is ADA
(Americans with
Disabilities Act)
accessible.
"I wanted to create' a
one-of-a-kind
experience for visitors.
I also believe in
Hamilton County and
wanted to make
something special
here," Doobay told the
Jasper News. "Hamilton
County is a beautiful
area and is the gateway
to Florida, so the best
name for the Resort is'
'Florida Gateway RV
Resort'."
Good Sam Park has
already given the
resort a glowing
review, giving the
facility 28 of 30
possible points. The
only two points,
deducted were one for
the pool, which is in


progress and should be
complete within the
next two months, and
one for the condition of
the unpaved road
leading in to the resort.
The resort is located
almost two miles off
US 129 South on 113th
Boulevard. Doobay has
asked the County
Commission to
consider paving 113th,
but no plans are
currently underway to
do so, according to
County Coordinator
Danny Johnson.
Other projects
currently under
construction at the
Resort include: mini-
golf, which will be
completed within the
next weeks; a

of you to volunteer and help keep our
city park clean and looking good."
In other business:
City Attorney Blair Payne gave the
final reading or Ordinance 090901:
Land Development Resolutions. The
ordinance was approved giving
guidelines for the city's role in future
land projects. '
During the report of officers, Payne
stated that entering an agreement
with the state attorney's office for the
purpose of prosecuting city ordinance
violators was not necessary.
According. to Payne� officers
responding to violations can write a
citation similar to a traffic citation
and the county judge will handle the
infraction by placing the officer and
the accused under oath and allowing


both to respond to the charge. A fine
could then be assessed if the'citation
if found to have merit.
Residents were then given an
opportunity to take the floor. Robert
Clark addressed the council
regarding a problem with the
enforcement of code violations and
his concerns,regarding the city's
current charter. He brought to the
attention of the council Article X,
Section 108, which calls for the city
attorney to act as prosecutor. Clark
cited an upcoming trial for violation
of the city's noise ordinance.
"The Charter was enacted in 1959
when city attorneys were allowed to
do this," Payne responded. "In 1968
this was ratified and reversed by
Florida statute."
In City Manager Larry Cail's
report, he gave an update as to the


I 'iiii

proposals of City utility rate increases. .- Photo: by Jo Ross


status of the paving project,
explaining that the cost for the paving
k project was mostly covered by grant
money. He also told the council that
the water tower near the ESP
warehouse was scheduled for
demolition. In a response to the flu
epidemic circulating, he requested
that the council agree to pay for flu
shots for employees who have direct
contact with the public. Shots would
be provided by the Health
Department and billedto the city. The
council agreed to the proposal.
Receiving accolades from Chair
Kathy Avriett for all the hard work he
puts in, Harry Davis was next on the
agenda to report on City
Maintenance. Davis told the council
that the old water tower at the Water
and Sewage Treatment Plant had
almost completely been disassembled
and taken down earlier in the day. He
spoke of the drainage work being
completed in the Vicker's Court area
and the planned installation of a
fenced and aesthetically pleasing
retention pond.
Police Chief Jeff McGuire gave his
report of the monthly and yearly
crime statistics for the Police
Department. During the month of
August, Police Officers responded to
five burglaries, two aggravated
assaults/batteries, one
assault/battery, five theft calls, five
traffic crashes and 58 traffic citations.
Totals for the year are: 28 burglaries,
| twelve aggravated assaults/batteries,
18 assaults/batteries, 33 thefts, seven
I drug offenses and 52 traffic citations.
Jasper Fire/Rescue Chief Bill
STrinder reported that his department
had responded to 28 calls during the
month of August and a total of 247
calls January 1 through August 31.
The final manager's report was
d presented by Margaret Harper and
included information on the financial


state of the city.
During the first readings of
ordinances proposals, discussion was
made regarding the rate increase on
garbage pick-up, water and sewage
and natural gas. Not only will the
daily rate see a slight increase, but the
late fees and security deposit rates
will be increasing as well.
City Clerk Jennifer Pomeroy
requested Oct. 14-16 off from her
duties as clerk to allow her to attend
the Florida Association of City Clerk's
training and Conference near
Orlando. After discussion was made
by Chair Kathy Avriett, Mayor Ann
Lessman and Councilwoman Elaine
Rozier, agreement was reached
allowing her the time off to attend.
After questioning Pomeroy as to
whether or not this would count
toward her required training, Rozier
appeared to sum up the feeling of the
'entire Council by her statement of, "I
have no problem if she wants to go
and pay her own way and
registration. I recommend we allow
her to take the time off."
This led to the final discussion
issue on the agenda which dealt with
the City's Overnight Travel
Guidelines. Rozier cited out of town
training trips to Washington, D.C. and
Washington state in the past where
the city was responsible for the
employee costs.
"I think there should be no out of
state attendance of any conference at
City expense." she said. "I'd like to
take a vacation, too, and not have to
pay for it."
Payne cautioned the council to not
make a "blanket prohibition." Rozier
conceded that requests for travel and
attendance to such conferences should
be made on a case-by-case basis, with
such requests coming before the
Council for determination. Approval
for the guidelines was unanimous.

students pay expenses for the first four
years of college. The program expands
and renames the already-existing
Hope credit and can be claimed for tu-
ition and certain fees paid for higher
education in 2009 and 2010. It is a tax
credit of up to $2,500 of the cost of
qualified tuition and related expenses.
Taxpayers who pay qualified tuition
and related expenses and whose feder-


al income tax return has a modified
adjusted gross income of less than
$80,000 ($160,000 or less for joint fil-

South Hamilton

Elementary School News


We have started another great year
at South Hamilton Elementary School.
Our student population has increased
this year by another 12% and we wel-
come these new students.
This puts our student population at
230 and with those students came a
need for more personnel. We are
pleased to welcome the following new
teachers to South Hamilton Elemen-
tary School: Mrs. Brandi Perez (2nd
Grade), Mrs. Kimberly Howard (5th
'Grade), and Mr. Michael Tolar (5th
Grade). Also, Mrs. Mary Ellen Adams
returned to us (2nd grade) and Mrs.
Leigh Ann Norris (6th Grade) trans-
ferred to SHE from CHE. Mr. Louis
Daniels became our full-time technolo-
gy coordinator which is a void we are
very proud to have filled.
So many folks have been kind to our
students and staff and we want to take
the time to thank them publicly.
PotashCorp treated our staff to a lun-
cheon during pre-planning and
awarded SHES one thousand dollars
to assist in academic improvement.
PotashCorp has been a friend and
business partner for several years and
we graciously thank them for their
support and encouragement. We es-
pecially offer our thanks to Mr. Mike
Williams and Mr. Rob Wolfe for their
involvement with our school on the
behalf of PotashCorp.
Speaking of encouragement, New
Hope Baptist Church brought cookies,
cupcakes, muffins, and all sorts of oth-
er goodies to make our pre-planning a
little less stressful. It wasn't just the
sugar or the chocolate that lifted our
feelings, but the realization that others
recognize the magnitude of the job and
offer encouraging and inspiring mo-


ments for us.
The First Baptist Church of White
Springs, Florida, came to the aid of
many of our students early in the year
by donating book bags complete with
stocked items, such as pens, pencils,
notebooks, paper, glue, scissors, calcu-
lators, and much more. The book bags
were designated by grades and con-
tained the SHES supply item lists for
that particular grade. They also pro-
vided hand sanitizers and Kleenex tis-
sues for the students and teachers.
Again, the items meant much to us
and our students, but the Christian
kindness, as with New Hope, was
heartfelt.
As we start our new year, we need to
mention' several others who have
helped us through financial, material,
and/or human resources. Our thanks
also go to Mr. Ken Daniels and Dr. Ben
Norris for their support of our Accel-
erated Reader Program (AR). Others
who are currently assisting us with
this program include Publix, Sam's
Club, New Millennium, Winn Dixie,
Wal-Mart, and Bud's Suds Coin Laun-
dry.
We also wart to thank third-grade
teacher, Mrs. Allison Scott for pulling
together her army of people and orga-
nizing our Chicken Pilaf dinner during
our Open House. We are thankful for
the school and district staff that assist-
ed us during Open House. In addi-
tion, we thank Mr. Jerome Law, and
other members or his family, who
have been instrumental in helping us
with our AR Fish Fry and Open
House. Man, it's great to have help!
Thank You.

Weekend boating tragedies a

harsh reminder about safety


The deaths of six
people in three sepa-
rate boating-related ac-
cidents in Florida dur-
ing the Labor Day
weekend are a stark -
reminder that the need
to practice safe boating
is as critical as ever.
, Three people died
Friday night when two
vessels collided near
Brooks Bridge at Fort
Walton Beach. Two of
the victims were from
Alabama, the other
from Texas. On Satur-
day, three others died,
including a father and
son from Tequesta
who were bass fishing
in Lake Okeechobee.
Later in the day, an
Alabama man died af-
ter the family fishing
boat capsized in the,
Gulf of Mexico off In-
dian Pass in Gulf
County.
"It's quite likely that
not one of those who
died this past weekend
ever thought some-
thing like that would
happen to them,"said
Capt. Richard Moore
of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC)
Division of Law En-
forcement. "Too many


people who enjoy
boating in Florida
think the same thing."
Although the causes
vary, many of Flori- '
da's boating accidents
involve a collision
with another vessel or
object, such as a bridge
piling, navigation
buoy or even the
shoreline. The FWC's
boating safety staff say
boat operators must
maintain 360-degree
situational awareness
to avoid dangerous
and potentially deadly
situations. Passengers
can help by alerting
the operator to any-
thing that might be in
the path of their boat.'
If there is one thing
boaters can do to make
themselves more safe,
it's wearing a life jack-
et. An estimated 60
percent of all people
who die in boating ac-
cidents would have
survived if they wore
a life jacket. No one on
any of the boats in-
volved in the three in-
cidents over the week-
end wore*a life jacket.
A variety of life
jackets are available to
boaters, including
newer styles of inflat-


. able models that are
much smaller, lighter
and more comfortable
to wear than tradi-
tional vest life jackets.
One new style, the belt
pack, goes around the
waist. A suspender:
style also is available.
Some of these models
activate automatically
if the wearer falls into
the water. Under the
laws of most states,
the inflatable models
must be worn to count
as a life jacket. In other
words, just having
them in the boat is not
enough.
"There isn't a better
place to enjoy boating
than here in Florida,
and we get to enjoy
the water year round,"
Moore said. "But,
something that much
fun can quickly turn to
tragedy if we let our
guard down."
During Florida's La-
bor Day holiday week-
end in 2008, no lives
were lost in boating
accidents. So far in
2009, Florida has lost
52 people in boating
accidents, and proba-
bly all of those could
have been prevented,
Moore said.

entitles one adult and one youth (un-
der age 16) to hunt together, but al-
lows only one daily bag limit of birds
to be harvested between them.
Permits are available for the follow-
ing special-opportunity public dove
fields: Allapattah Flats Wildlife Man-
agement Area in Martin County (25
.daily-use permits), Caravelle Ranch
WMA in Putnam County (49 daily-use
permits), Combs Farm Public Small-
game Hunting Area in Baker County


(10 daily-use permits), Hilochee WMA
* in Lake County (15 daily-use permits)
and North Newberry Public Small-
game Hunting Area in Alachua Coun-
ty (12 daily-use permits). ,
Sportsmen also have the option of
buying a $10 Youth Permit at the same
time they purchase a Dove Hunt Per-
mit. This entitles the youth (under age
16), while hunting under the supervi-
sion of the adult permit holder, to har-
vest his own daily bag limit of birds.
"These special-opportunity dove
fields are.planted and managed by the
FWC and offer great hunting opportu-


nities in a friendly, social atmosphere
that provides the perfect setting for
friends and family, including young-
sters, to hunt together," said. Kurt
Hodges, FWC small-game biologist.
Beginning October 1, up-to-date, in-
formation on field conditions and bird
number will be available by visiting
the Dove Hunter's, Hotline at
MyFWC.com/Dove.

and your family can -get-involved in
these unique special-opportunity dove
hunts, visit MyFWC.com/Dove.

My trip to China


Melanie Daniels

-Submitted by Melanie
tbaniels

On June 20th I,
Melanie Daniels, took a
trip to China and I
would like to say
"Thank You" to my fam-
ily, churches, friends,
and my community for
all that you did to make


this trip an unforgettable
trip of my life. I will nev-
er forget it.
I stayed in China for
17 days; the most unfor-
gettable 17 days of my
life! I traveled with "Peo-
ple to People' Student
Ambassadors.
While I was in China I
saw, heard, and did a lot.
I went to Tiananmen
Square; one of the
biggest places in the
world! It has 9,995 hous-
es inside the square. I
also got to walk the
Great Wall of China. The
Great Wall represents a
wonder of ancient Chi-
na, as well as an out-
standing example of
world civilization. The
wall was first built by
the warring states in
China more than 7,700
years ago to protect their
territory. . These, walls
have a total length of
5,000 kilometers which
run across an area as
large as 16 of today's
provinces, ,municipali-
ties, and autonomous re-
gion.


Boyd bill would repeal

vehicle fee increases


Staff

State Representative
Debbie Boyd, D-High
Springs, is sponsoring
legislation to eliminate
vehicle fee increases ap-
proved during the 2009
legislative session.
"These fee increases
"are simply a tax on any-
one who drives," said
Boyd. "These expenses
will hit our working
class families and small
businesses the hardest,
and they hit just when
,people can least afford
them."
1 The cost of a Florida
driver's license has dou-
bled, and is now set at
'$48. It will also cost $25
more each year to renew
the registration on a


medium-sized vehicle,
bringing those costs to
nearly $72.
"I think the sense of
panic was clear, when
seeing frustrated people
in line at our local motor
vehicle and tax collector
offices," said Boyd. "It is
truly unfortunate that
the legislature gave such
a narrow window of
time for people to pre-
pare for this."
Boyd signed House
Bill 99 last week. Under
a letter sent by Rep. Ron
Saunders, D-Key West,
the legislation would
"revert vehicle registra-
tion and title fees and
driver's license fees back
to what ,they were before
the passage of Senate
Bill 1778."


The USDA Natural
Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) in Flori-
da began continuous
sign up for the new
Conservation Steward-
ship Program (CSP).
The USDA NRCS re-
minds agricultural and
forestry producers of
the application cutoff
date for.the Conserva-
tion Stewardship Pro-
'gram (CSP). CSP is a
voluntary program that
encourages agricultural
and forestry producers
to maintain existing
conservation activities
and adopt additional
ones on their opera-
tions. The program is
offered to producers
statewide through con-
tinuous sign-ups but
producers must submit
their applications by
September 30th to be
considered for funding
in the first ranking peri-
od.
"Farmers, ranchers
and forestry producers
actively engaged in con-
servation land steward-
ship have the opportu-
nity to earn conserva-
tion rewards through
CSP, "says NRCS state
conservationist for Flori-


da, Carlos Suarez. "This
program gives conser-
vation-minded produc-'
ers the ability to apply
and build on their cur-
rent stewardship ef-
forts."
The NRCS adminis-
ters CSP, a new volun-
tary conservation pro-
gram that provides fi-
nancial and technical as-
sistance to conserve and
enhance soil, water, air,
and related natural re-
sources on the land.
CSP provides opportu-
nities ,to both recognize
excellent stewards and
deliver valuable new
conservation. Eligible
lands include cropland,
grassland, improved
pastureland, rangeland,
nonindustrial private
forestland6a new land
use for the pro-
gram6and agricultural
land under the jurisdic-
tion of an Indian tribe.
Individual landowners,
legal entities, and Amer-
ican Indian Tribes may
be eligible to apply for
CSP assistance.
CSP is authorized in
the 2008 Farm Bill. This
program replaced one
authorized in the 2002
Farm Bill, the Conserva-


tion Security Program,
which was only offered
on a watershed-specific
basis. The new CSP is
now available to
landowners statewide
and provides equitable
access to all producers,
regardless of operation
size, crops produced, or
geographic location.
To apply for the new-
ly revamped CSP, po-
tential participants will
be encouraged to use a
self-screening checklist
first to determine
whether the new pro-
gram is suitable for
them or their operation.
It will be available on
NRCS Web sites and at
NRCS field offices. After
self-screening, the pro-
ducer's current and pr6-'
posed conservation,
practices are entered in
the conservation mea-
surement tool (CMT).
This tool estimates the
level of environmental
performance to be
achieved by a producer.
implementing and
maintaining conserva-
tion activity. The con-
servation performance
estimated by the CMT
will be used to rank ap-
plications.


NRCS field staff also
will conduct on-site
field Verifications of ap-
plicants' informatiofi ob-
tained from the CMT.
Once the potential par-
ticipant has-been field
verified and approved
for funding, he or she
must develop a conser-
vation stewardship
plan.
The first step in ap-
plying for CSP reward
funds will be to com-
plete a 3-page, self-
screening checklist. The
checklist, a fact sheet,
and other information
are available on the
NRCS CSP web site at
www.nrcs.usda.gov/ne
.w_csp.
The September 30th
deadline is fast ap-
proaching; interested
producers are encour-
aged to take their com-
pleted checklist to the
local USDA-NRCS office
for use in completing
the program applica-
tion. They will also need
to bring their farm
maps. For more infor-
mation or to make an
appointment please con-
tact the NRCS office in

Now's the time to apply online

for a new year retirement


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District
Manager, Gainesville, Fl

If you're planning on
retiring sometime early
in the new year, now is
the time to apply for re-
tirement benefits. The
most convenient way to
apply for Social Security
benefits is online -- from
the comfort of your
home or office. Just go
t o
www.socialsecurity.gov
/applyonline.
* Our website will
walk you through the
online retirement appli-
cation process. We will
tell you what informa-
tion you will need to an-
swer the questions on
the application. Further,
we will describe the doc-
uments you may need to
present once you have
submitted your applica-
tion.
* Before you start
your application, we rec-
ommend you get an esti-
mate of your retirement
benefit. This too, you can
do on the Social Security
website at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov/ estima-
tor. The Retirement Esti-


mator uses your person-
al employment history
to estimate your retire-
ment benefit. It also will
help you to answer some
of the questions on the
retirement application.
* You can use the
online application to ap-
ply for Social Security re-
tirement or spouses ben-
efits if you: ,
* Are at least 61
years and 9 months old;
* Want to start
your benefits in the next
four months; and
* Live in the Unit-'
ed States.
* 1 You will want to
be fully informed of
your options and their
consequences' before ap-
plying. The website will
tell you everything you
need to know about the
Social Security "basics"
so you'll be ready to re-
tire when you apply on-
line.
* Before filing on-
line for retirement, we
suggest you have the fol-
lowing information on
hand:
* Your date and
place of birth and Social
Security number;
* Your bank or fi-
nancial institution's
routing transit number
and the account number,
for direct deposit of your
benefits;
* The amount of
money earned last year
and this year. If you are
filing for benefits in the
months, of September
through December, you
also will need to esti-


mate next year's earn-
ings;
* The name and
address of your employ-
er(s) for this year and
last year;
* The beginning
and ending dates of any
active U.S. military ser-
vice you had before
1968;
* The name, Social
Security number and
date of birth or age of
your current spouse and
any former spouse. You
also should know the
dates and places of mar-
riage and dates of di-
vorce or death (if appro-
priate); and
* A copy of your
Social Security State-
ment.
* Even if you
don't have all the infor-
mation we need, you
should go ahead and ap-
ply. 'We will contact you
later if we need addi-
tional documentation.
Applying online
means there is no need,
for you to go to a Social
Security office or wait
for a scheduled appoint-
ment with a Social Secu-
rity representative. Be-
sides, retiring online is
so easy. You can apply
in as little as 15 minutes.'
So if you want to start
the new year off as a re-
tiree, or plan to start col-
lecting benefits early in
the new year, now's the
time to take action.
Don't delay; apply on-
line today at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov / apply-
online.,

Dear Classified Guys,
I've loved cats ever since I was a kid.
To me they are the perfect pets.
They're easy to care for, always
affectionate and easy to love. I have
two of them that I named Abbot and
Costello. The names came not from
their sense of humor, but from the
fact that one is tall and lean while the
other is considerably overweight.
I'm not sure if this Is it his genes or
if he's snacking on the kitchen
garbage. Unfortunately I've taken on
a job that requires extensive travel
and caring for Abbot and Costello is
becoming increasingly complicated.
My hope was to find them a new
home together, but all the people
who have responded to my classi-
fied ad only want Abbot. &E^
Poor Costello (my fat cat)
doesn't seem to attract any -
caregivers. Although no
one says it, I'm sure people
just don't like his weight. Do
you have any solutions for finding
both of these guys a new home?
Cash: I'm sure if your cats could
argue "Who's on First?".they'd find a
home in no time. However since it's
unlikely they'll learn the art of slapstick
comedy, you do have a tricky task.


CLASSED

GUYS 1


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


Carry: It's difficult to give up a pet
that you've grown to love. Finding
them a new home together will be
tough. But even more difficult may
be entertaining the idea of splitting
them up.
Cash: On the plus side, it sounds
like your cats get along very Well
together. That should help. In addi-
tion, your choice of catchy names may
encourage people to try and keep them
together as well.
Carry: Unfortunately, finding a new
owner will probably come down to how
much time you can afford to put toward
the process. The lodger you can wait to
find a suitable home, the better chance


a,'


you have of success.
Cash:, If your new job and constant
travel is interfering with their care or
finding them a home, then you may have
to consider splitting up the comedy duo.
Although emotionally difficult for you,
finding them good homes separately is
better than not finding one at all.
Carry: While you continue your
search, put Costello on a diet if you're
concerned about his weight. Loosing a
few pounds may not find him the per-
fect owner, but it could go a long way
to improving his long-term health.
Cash: And to make sure he's not
cheating, you might want to get a lid
for your kitchen garbage!


Hey Abbott!
Abbott and Costello were the slap-
stick comedy duo of the 1940's. They
started working together developing
their act around 1935 and performed
their famous "Who's on First?" routine
on national radio in 1938. From there
they went on. to fihnlms and television
becoming the top box office draw with
a reported take of $10 million. They
remained a top ten box office attraction
until 1952. Their partnership dissolved
when the IRS charged them with owing
back taxes, forcing them to sell their ,
homes and much of their assets.
Man's Best Friend
Latest reports show that Americans
and their pets have become increasingly
obese. In 1962 it was estimated that
only about 13% of people were obese.
Since then, the percentages have grown
significantly. According the latest
reports from the Centerfor Disease
Control, more than 66% of all
Americans are now considered over-
weight or obese. Likewise, we've
passed our eating habits on to our pets.
According to statistics, over,40% of our
pet dogs are considered obese as well.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? We want to hear all about It!

Out to Lunch
Over the years my husband has tol-
erated us owning cats. Last year, I
adopted a new one named Buster that
required special food every day. Each
night I would mix two containers of
tuna. One for my husband to take for
lunch and the other mixed with cat
food to feed Buster in the morning.
I suppose it was inevitable that one
day I'd confuse the containers. While
feeding Buster I realized I ga % emi
husband the wrong one for lunch and
hadno way to reach him. .
That evening when he came home
I figured he'd be upset. Instead when,
I asked him how his lunch was, he
handed me an empty container and
smirked, "Honey, today that lunch
was purr-fect!"

Keeping Asthma under control
A new nationwide telephone survey of 1,001 asthma patients, conducted by
AstraZeneca, found that while most patients with asthma understand the risks
associated with uncontrolled asthma, they don't always act accordingly.
"This finding demonstrates a serious disconnect between the perceived
consequences of uncontrolled asthma and the necessary steps people should
take to achieve better control," explains Dr. Shailen Shah, an asthma expert with
PA Allergy and Asthma Consultants. "Some people believe that asthma goes away
when their symptoms do but asthma Is a chronic disease. The good news is that
with the appropriate treatment regimen, the inflammation that causes the
symptoms may be properly managed."
Additionally, there are simple steps patients can take to avoid unnecessary
complications, beginning with an open discussion with a physician and taking
advantage of such free patient programs like My Measures For Success
(www.JolnMeasuresToday.com), where patients choose the offerings they want,
the way they want them, from a menu of free resources.
UnderstandIng Asthma
People with asthma suffer from chronic lung inflammation, with symptoms
ranging from coughing and wheezing to chest tightness and shortness of breath.
Additionally, asthma triggers such as air pollution, smoke, pet darlder, pollen and
mold can set off an asthma episode.
"Some asthma triggers that people may not initially think of are seasonal
weather changes and air pollution," says Shah. "If allergens like pollen or mold
trigger your asthma, or you live in an area with smog, take simple steps to limit
your exposure by signing up to receive daily air quality alerts or pollen counts -
delivered right to your phone or e-mail -- at www.JoinMeasuresToday.com."
It's important for patients to understand that when their asthma is under control
with the help of their physicians, through lifestyle modifications and the proper use
of appropriate controller medication, they should exhibit few asthma symptoms.
Simple Steps to Asthma Control
A physician can help create an asthma action plan and determine if a controller
medication, In addition to a rescue medication, is appropriate.
"To complement an asthma action plan, patient programs like My Measures for
Success offer patients tools and resources to better help manage their disease,"
says Dr. Shah. "I recommend patients utilize such features as the automated
doctor appointment reminders and medication reminders, to help them stay on top
of their treatment program."
In addition to these unique tools offered through My Measures For Success,
. members also receive Success Points, awarded for regular participation In the
program that can be redeemed for various health-related items.
"Using an'asthma action plan in conjunction with a patient program can help
patients stay in the know and in control of their asthma," Shah stresses. 'ay
understanding proper asthma management and appropriate use of medications,
patients can help maintain control over their asthma symptoms and minimize the
risks associated with uncontrolled asthma."

17-foot python seized from Lakeland home


An anonymous tip to the
Wildlife Alert Hotline sent
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators to a
Lakeland residence in search of
two illegally kept Burmese
pythons. What was hidden from
the world shocked even
investigator Daryl Amerson,' a
24-year FWC veteran who
thought he had seen it all.
Amerson discovered an 11-
foot-long male Burmese
python, dwarfed by its female


companion, a 17-foot behemoth
of the same species that
weighed more than 150 pounds.
Michael T. Hall, 37, of 1836
Jupiter St., Lakeland, owned
the snakes but did not have the
required state permit to keep
them. The FWC lists Burmese
pythons as reptiles of concern,
which requires owners to
purchase an annual $100
permit.
Owners are required to have
the pets microchipped and must
follow specific caging


requirements based on the size
of the reptile. They also must
keep a written and approved
contingency plan in case of
escape or natural disaster.
Hall was charged with
second-degree misdemeanors
for not having the required
permit and not having a
critical-incident plan.
Additionally, Hall received a
warning for not having the
animals microchipped. The
snakes were taken to a licensed
facility.


The new rules for captive
wildlife went into effect in
January 2008. People who
owned reptiles of concern prior
to the effective date are still
required to purchase the reptile
of concern permit.
The FWC hosts Pet Amnesty
Days several times a year. At
these events, people who can
no longer keep nonnatives as
pets can turn them over to the
FWC for placement. The next
Pet Amnesty Day will be. for
reptiles of concern only, at


Gatorland in Orlando on Oct. 3.
On Wednesday at the FWC
meeting in Howey-in-the-Hills,
the Commission directed staff
to look at the science behind
personal-pet ownership of
reptiles of concern and
breeding and sale by Florida's
reptile industry and bring back
a report at the next meeting in
December in Clewiston.
To report wildlife law
violations, call the toll-free .
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-
404-3922.

FSU law, medical schools ranked in: top 10 for Hispanic students


By Jill Elish
Florida State
University's colleges of
law and medicine are
among the Top 10 best in
the nation for Hispanics,
according to Hispanic
Business magazine, which
has published its annual
rankings of graduate
schools in the magazine's
September issue.
The College'of Law was
ranked third among the
nation's law schools, while
the College of Medicine
was ranked seventh among
medical schools. This is
the sixth year in a row that
Florida State Law blas been
named in the Top 10. The'
College of Medicine was
ranked 11th in 2008.
"The Florida State
University colleges of law


and medicine are at the
forefront of recruiting and
retaining Hispanic
students, and we are
pleased that Hispanic
Business magazine has
recognized these efforts
and the high quality of
education that these
colleges offer," said
Provost and Executive
Vice President for
Academic Affairs
Lawrence G. Abele. "The
success of these programs
reflects the university's
commitment to excellence
and dedication to
encouraging a diverse
community where all of
our students can thrive."
The magazine based its
ranking on a variety of
factors, including the
percentage of full-time


Hispanic faculty, services
for Hispanic students;
Hispanic recruitment
efforts and retention rates,
the percentage of Hispanic
students enrolled and the
school's reputation as '
reflected in U.S. News &
World Report. Florida
State also has a significant
network of highly
successful Hispanic
alumni.
"Although we have
fewer Hispanic students
than some other schools, a
significant presence of
Hispanics in the faculty
arid administration has
helped us continue to
climb in the Hispanic
Business rankings,", said
Law Dean Don Weidner.
"We are thrilled that our
superb academic


reputation and dedication
to the-success of students
from all backgrounds have
earned us the No. 3 spot."
Hispanics made up 8
percent of the law school's
student enrollment and
received 27 of the 314 law
degrees (9 percent)
awarded to the Class of
2008. Fourteen percent of
the full-iime faculty was
Hispanic.
At the College of
Medicine, Hispanics made
up 11 percent of the
college's student body and
earned eight of the 58
medical degrees (14
percent) awarded in 2008.
Four percent of the
college's full-time faculty,
was Hispanic.
"Our mission is to train
exemplary physicians who


will provide patient-
centered care and
eventually serve in
underrepresented, rural
and minority areas," said
Dr. John P. Fogarty, dean
of the College of
Medicine. "The best way
to achieve this is to
identify students who


come from these
communities and provide
excellent role models and
training experiences in
those communities while
here. We are pleased that
our students here embrace
that mission and have
chosen FSU as their
medical school."

The Leadon Family Band


...to perform at Gainesville's Free Fridays Concert Series


GAINESVILLE - The Leadon Family Band consists of
Mark Leadon and younger sister Monica (Leadon)
Cooper, along with a stellar group Qf some of
Gainesville's finest musicians. Mark and Monica are
members of the long-time Gainesville musical family, the
Leadons. Two of their older brothers have had noted and
successful careers in music, which included playing in
bands in Gainesville during their younger years. Bernie
Leadon is best known as an original member of the
Eagles, and played in the Flying Burrito Brothers, Dillard
& Clark, with Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, Emmy Lou
Harris and many others. Tom Leadon played with Tom
Petty and Mike Campbell in a Gainesville band called
Mudcrutch and then played with Johnny Rivers, Linda
Ronstadt, Silver and others in Los Angeles. Mudcrutch
reformed in 2008 and released a new CD and is
performing many concerts.-
The Leadon Family Band has performed a number of
concerts in the north Florida and south Georgia region in
recent years. Longtime friends, Jack Nettles on electric
lead guitar and vocal harmonies, Larry Thompson on
drums, Jon Alexander on pedal steel guitar and new
addition Ron Thomas on the bass guitar, provide a strong,
solid backbone sound behind Mark and Monica's lead
vocals and acoustic rhythm guitars. The Leadon Family
Band concerts consist of mostly original songs written by
Mark and Monica. Their songs are expressive of themes
and musical sounds found in much of the folk, country-
rock and rock and roll songs they have grown up with.
They have been particularly influenced by the careers of
their older brothers and will often spice up their live
performances by adding, a couple of rousing cover songs,


such as ones by the Eagles or Flying Burrito Brothers.
This "Free Fridays" concert will particularly celebrate the
release of Monica Leadon's new CD by featuring her
latest songs.
The Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays" concerts run from
8 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Friday night this year from May 1
through October 30. The Bo Diddley Community Plaza is
located on the corner of Southeast 1st Street and East
University Avenue. The complete schedule for the

Archie's


years


of sweetheart choice

indecision ends


By Mike LaBella
CNHI News Service


HAVERHILL, Mass. - For fans
of the "Archie" comics serial, it
has always been the great debate.
Betty Cooper or Veronica
Lodge?
The blonde or the brunette?
The wholesome girl next door
or the curvey socialite?
Who would Archie Andrews
prefer to spend the rest of his life
with?
Well, the answer is finally
known after 70 years - and the
surprise choice is Veronica.
Archie Comic Publications of
Mamaroneck, N. Y., has settled
the question with a new, six-part
series, "Archie Marries
Veronica." The first part, "The


Proposal," is now on newsstands.
Archie, Betty, Veronica,
Jughead and the other characters
of the fictional Riverdale High
\ fere created and drawn by the
late artist Bob Montana. He
based them roughly on his
classmates at Haverhill, Mass.,
High School in the late 1930s.
The comic characters were
popular during much of the 20th
century in newspaper comic
strips, in comic books and on
radio.
But Archie's sweetheart
preference was never disclosed.
Until now.
On the cover of the latest
comic book, Archie is on one
knee proposing to Veronica, who
responds, "Yes!" Looking on is a
teary-eyed Betty and a surprised


Jughead.
The decision to end the high
school years and start Archie and
Veronica on a life of marriage
has caused a stir among
classmates of the real-life
"Archie" gang almost 70 years,
ago.


It is something Rita Walker, a
member of the Haverhill High
class of 1940, never thought
would happen. She expected
Archie to stay forever in high
school and not get married.
"Keep the comic strip young
and the comic book young,"
Walker said. "Archie should stay
Archie. Why would we want him
to get married?"
But if he has to get married,
Walker agreed Veronica is the
right choice.
"I think (Montana) fashioned
her around his favorite actress of
the time, which was Veronica
Lake," she said.
Longtime local newspaper
columnist Barney Gallagher, a
member of the Haverhill High
class of 1939, was an editor for
the school newspaper, the Brown
and Gold, for which Montana
drew cartoons.
"If he's proposing to Veronica,
I think he's got the right one,"
Gallagher said. "I think she had
more color, more character and
was more lively and fascinating
than Betty."
Gallagher knew the "real"
Veronica as Agatha Popoff, a
member of his class and the
daughter of a local doctor.


"She was a really good-looking
brunette. You couldn't miss her,"
he said. "I think Betty was a
composite of girls. Even
Montana's wife always said that.
But somehow, Betty captured the
imagination of people as the girl
next door. Veronica was far from
being the girl next door."
Fred Malcolm Sr., another
member of the Class of 1939,
questioned Archie's final choice
of mates.
"It probably should have been
Betty," he said. "Someone I'd be
pleased to be married to."
Charlie Hayden, also of the
Class of 1939, remembers
Montana walking around the
school sketching images of
students, especially female
classmates. The first time he saw
an Archie comic book was during
World War II, when he was
serving with the U.S. Army in
Italy.
"If they want Archie to get
married, that's fine," he said. "I
have more things in life to worry
about."
Still, Archie's impending
marriage to Veronica, after seven
decades of indecision, is sure to
be a hot topic of discussion when
the Haverhill High classes of
1939 and 1940 hold their
reunions this fall.

Ocala doctors support


rehabilitation efforts in


gratitude for pet's care

Radiologist Dr. Scott Kerns and his wife, Dr. Suzie
Kerns, a pediatrician, are "people" doctors whose
commitment to their animals has taken them all over
the country. Throughout their journey, however, one
University of Florida veterinarian has consistently
provided care or courisel relating to treatment of their
beloved pets, including their dog, Zozo.
The couple began a relationship in 2007 with Kristin
Kirkby, D.V.M., who u as then a surgical resident in the
College of Veterinary Medicine. The Kernses' dog,
Zozo, a mixed breed adopted from Haiti, came to UP in
2007 to receive medical treatment for a head injury she
received just a week before she departed for Florida to
be with her new family .
During her first days in the UF Veterinary Medical
Center's intensive care unit, she, was treated for
gastrointestinal hemorrhage after nearly bleeding to
death.
"I didn't actually treat Zozo when she first came in
for head trauma," said Kirkby, who now directs the
new Small Animal Rehabilitation and Fitness Center. "I
saw her and k6iew how small and frail and hurt she
was. But I met the Kernses when I was at a
rehabilitation course in South Florida and they came in
with Zozo as the 'class example.' She had come to be
treated by our class instructor, Dr. Laurie McCauley."
McCauley is an Illinois-based veterinarian certified
in canine rehabilitation therapy, acupuncture and
chiropractic.
The couple mentioned Zozo was not spayed and that
whenever she would go into heat she would take giant
steps.backward in her recovery process
"I introduced myself to them and said that I could
facility her being spayed at UF so that she could have a
boarded anesthesiologist." Kirkby said. "When they
came up for the procedure, I started telling them about
my.wish to start a rehabilitation service here. They said
that they have had to travel state and country looking
for this service and how great it would be to have
something so nearby."

The Kerhses soon had donated money and
equipment - resources that Kirkby said were essential
in the rehabilitation program's successful'
development.

"Without them, we would not be where we are now,"
Kirkby said.
The Small Animal Rehabilitation and Fitness Center
at UF has now been in operation for about a year and a
half, and is gearing up to
accept new patients from
outside the VMC.
The Kernses have been
tireless in their efforts to
obtain the best possible
care for the dog they say
has "richly blessed"
them. Zozo's dramatic
medical odyssey has
spanned two years and
has included both human
doctors and veterinarians
from several states
working in the fields of
physical therapy,
chiropractic and
acupuncture.
"Zozo certainly is well-
traveled," said Suzie
Kerns, who has visited
specialists in Illinois,
Oregon and Florida. Prior
to meeting Kirkby, the
family took its pet to a
therapist who specializes
in craniosacral work in
Illinois, who was
recommended by Kerns'
sister, Dr. Sharon Forster
Blouin, a feline
practitioner iin Corvallis,
Ore., and a 1992 graduate
of UF CVM.
Later, Kirkby would
travel to Illinois to learn
More about the therapist's
techniques in order to
better treat Zozo closer to
home. She and the
Kernses also visited with
a human chiropractor to
take advantage of his
expertise in functional
.. .neurology.
"We aren't sure which
treatment modality or.
"9 ...therapist or supplement
J has made the most
difference, but we do
know Zozo has defied all
' odds and expectations,"
.# . ;. ". ,Suzie Kerns said, adding
that Dr. Huisheng Xie, a
UF veterinary
, cupuncturist, played a
' key role in caring for
both of their pets during
their hospitalizations at
Sthe VMC.
Now Zozo's biggest
remaining problem is the
tendency to tuck her chin
. between her front legs
and literally somersault
when she's agitated or

smells.
d- i u ,"To the casual
observer, she has a high-
stepping, prancing gait
,.. ., , and a slight head tilt,"
Kerns said. "To us, she is
8. a miracle and the
absolute joy of our lives.
She has taught us never
I ,, , ' ,to give up hope."
