County

Looking For

Solution For

Fowlers

Bluff Fire
Department
SDilernmma
The count\ commissioners
heard an offer from
Chiefland Fire Department to
temporarily take over and run
the Fowlers Bluff Fire De-
partment for the remainder of
this fiscal year. The offer was
made at Tuesday's Levy
County Commission meet-
ing.
Fo\xlers Bluff Fire De-
partment has been closed
down for the past several
months after their chief, Rick
Lombardo. was relieved of
his duties.
During the meeting, the
county fire chief, who is also
Rick Lombardo, stated that if
Chiefland takes over Fow lers
Bluff it will be consolidating
two departments.
The county is in the begin-
ning stages of moving for-
ward with a county-wide fire
assessment study. During this
process, all of the county-
funded fire departments will
be assessed including their
equipment needs, and their
call loads.
There was a discussion on,
whether the county should
hold off on any decision con-
curring Chiefland' temporar-
ily taking over the Fowlers
Bluff Fire Department. At
this time, the City of
Chiefland is absorbing the
cost of running calls in Dis-
trict 6 (Fowlers Bluff).
Chiefland City Commis-
sioner Alice Monyei pointed
out.that this was an ongoing
expense for the City of
Chiefland.
SIn a recent meeting of the
Chiefland City Commission,
where the situation with
Fowlers Bluff was discussed,
Dr. Bob Mount, who is
president of the fire board in
Fowlers Bluff, said that he
felt the county funding for
District 6 should go to the
Cbiefland Fire Department
because they were the ones
providing the service.
After discussion by com-
missioners it was decided to
look into the matter further.
No action was taken in this
matter.

By Portia Sache
Rickey Whitley, youth
minister at Pine Grove
Baptist Church. grew up
in Cairo, Georgia. Cairo
is'a rural area in southwest
Georgia and although there
are many farms in the area.
he did not live on a farm.
Whitley states he
needed an elective class in
high school so he decided
to take agriculture. He also
joined the FFA. He says,
"This became the key. to.


my life in public relations.
I did public. speaking and
participated in parliamentary
procedure contests and both
events \ere instrumental in
building confidence."
The first elected office
Whitley held in the FFA
was that of the chaplain. He
had no: idea that he would
become a church youth
minister. He also held the
office of vice president in
the Cairo High School FFA
Chapter. His best friend,
Darryl Singletary, was


president of the chapter.
Singletary's career path has
led him to Nashville where
he has had country music
hits entitled "Too ,.Much:
Kind of Fun," "I've Thought
of Everything" and "Amen
Kind of Love."
While 's highest
achievement in the FFA
organization was that of the'
state agribusiness award in
Georgia in 1990. Ho\%e\er.
he reaps the rewards of the
FFA everyday, as he believes
the organization has taught


him a lot about values and
Sirtues. He believes his
background in the FFA has
also enabled him to minister
effectively to the youth in
the churches where he has
served as a youth pastor.
While\ served as youth
minister at NMt. Pleasant
Baptist Church in Gilchrist
County before his move to
Pine GroTe Baptist Church
in August 2004. Both
churches are in rural areas
and ha\e lots of youth
that ha'e an agricultural
background. His ovwn
background gives him
the ability to relate to the
rural young people and has
enhanced his opportunities
to minister to them. :.
Pine Grove d Baptist
Church is located in north
Levy County but the church
membership includes a large
area that includes Alachua,
Dixie and Gilchrist counties.
The location of this church
provides Whitley the unique
opportunity to influence the
lives of young people in
a multi-county area rather
than one small community.
He has found himself in a
church that has several active
FFA members in chapters
at Bronson, Chiefland and
Trenton who have received
state and national awards.

Level Baptist Church in
southwest Georgia to Pine
Grove Baptist Church in

Levy Sand
By Cindy Jo Ayers
How about this weather?
You might live in Florida if
last week you were wearing
shorts and flip flops and this
week you are having to haul
your ferns inside so the cold
doesn't kill them.
Our son J. came in last
week and told me he was re-
pairing a tin roof and the
sweat was dripping off his
cap's bill. Early Monday of
this week he was crossing a
tin roof while working and
stepped on a patch of ice
which caused him to have a
'quick descent from the roof
top.
We just never know if we
should bundle up or not
when we leave each morn-
ing... What can I say, just
one of the joys of living in
the Sunshine State.
A little weather humor:
A husband and his wife
were sound asleep when
suddenly the phone rang.
The husband picked up the
phone and said, "Hello? How
the heck do I know? What do
I look like, a weatherman?"
-Then he slammed the phone
:. 'down and settled into bed.
S"Who was that?" asked his
Wife.
"I don't know. It was some
S:guy who wanted to know if
the coast was clear."

Miss Honey
Says........

Monday, January 17
2005, 3:45 a.m. Gooi
morning! It's cold outside
this morning, but Miss
Honey and Sweet Pea ar
snug as a bug in a rug ii
our recliner. Yeah, Swee
Pea thinks she is the owne
of my recliner, so she is un
der her blanket and in m,
chair beside me resting afte:
a wild run. Tiny, she thinks
Sweet Pea must be crazy
Nuff said for now about my
"Wild Child," Sweet Pea.
I have coffee making and
decided to write, so I won'l
be late taking it to the Jour-
nal.
I stopped on the way
home from church yester-
day and got a chicken din-
.ner .and brought it home
and yes, Tiny and Sweet Pea
ate most of my chicken, but
they say "children will be
children!" My two, Sweet
Pea and Tiny are no excep-
tion. Ha! Ha!
I went to my grandson
Adam's wedding Saturday
evening in Trenton, at the
Woman's Club. It was nice
and Bridgett was a beautiful
bride. They made a beauti-
ful couple, but most all
grannies would think so,
and Miss Honey is no ex-
ception.
I opened the door to let
Tiny out' this morning and
it was so cold she didn't
take much time. She was
waiting for me to let her
back in. Yes, my cat is still
here, not much chance of
her leaving now. She has
been here two or three
weeks now.
I am making a new desert
today. If it's good I'll di-
vide with my neighbors,
Boyd and Helen. I'll let
A nB
you know--okav:? If not -Il1
keep quiet
I really like going on a
treasure hunt at the thrift
shops in Williston and
Chiefland. It doesn't cost
me much either. Oh what a
way to live and enjoy life
when you are left alone and
lonely, and have a limited
income. I really do enjoy
this. Also, I have picked up
a few treasures. I also like to
make a little child happy. so
I keep a few dolls, tedd)
bears and rabbits in my car
to give to some I see in
parked cars or parking lots.
Also, older people who are
sitting in the car waiting it
makes them feel good. I get
a blessing too, and it
doesn't cost much.
I believe the good we do

Curves Now Open In

Williston


By: Tracie OSteen
The City of Williston has
added Curves to the down-
town area. No, I'm not talk-
ing about to the roads; I'm
talking about Curves For
Women. Curves is the larg-
est fitness franchise in the
world with over 8,000 loca-
tions worldwide.
Laura Hunt and Debra
Osteen of Williston recently
held the "Grand Opening"
for Curves on January 10,
2005.
According to Curves Inter-
national, during the week of
January 10, 2005 the Willis-
ton chain had more members
sign up than the approxi-
mately 57 other' Curves that.
have opened. The local
Curves had 167 members
sign up during their first
week of business. Curves
International: reports that the
average Curves signs up 50
members the first week. The
opening was so successful
that Hunt and Osteen had to
get special permission from
their Curves corporate men-
tor to extend their one-time
special membership fee. The
extension allows those who
have not joined yet to take
advantage of 66 percent off
the one-time fee until the end
of January.
Gary and Diane Heavin
opened the first Curves in
Harlingen, Texas in 1992.
Their idea was a new concept
of 30-minute fitness, weight-
loss guidance, strength
training, and, a comfortable
environment designed spe-
cifically for women. Their
success was immediate.
In'the past two years
Curves has ranked as the
number two, franchise in
America, only behind Sub-
way, Statistics show that
there is one Curves to every
four McDonalds:.
The concept of Curves'is
for -ed '\a nih 'riin pto spendd
thirty minutes a day, three
times a week, to improve
their quality of life. The first'
visit for new members con-
sists of a "figure analysis"
and registration. The second
visit, the new member will
get her first w orkout \\ ith the
assistance of a fitness techni-


cian. The member can then
be on her way to a healthier
lifestyle by working out at
her own convenience. Ac-
cording to co-owners Laura
Hunt and Debra Osteen
Curves is set up where its
members rotate between
eight strength-training sta-
tions and eight.recovery sta-
tions. Osteen said "Curves
offers women the opportu-
nity to work all major muscle
groups by both strength
training and getting an aero-
bic workout all within thirty
minutes." The strength
training uses hydraulic ma-
chines so the user does not
have to do heavy lifting or
change weights during the
workout. The members get
their aerobic workout by do-
ing various activities such as
walking or jogging in place
or any other movements to
keep their heart rate in their
range according to age and
health between their sets of
strength training. During the
course of the workout the
members stop every eight
minutes to check their heart
rate to ensure that they are
within their target heart rate
range. The members end
each session by stretching
exercises. Hunt and Osteen
agreed that stretching at the
end of the workout increases
the effectiveness of that
workout by nineteen percent.
Curves offers its members
the opportunity to sign up for
the twelve-month check draft
program. The advantage of
the check draft program is
that members can transfer
from one Curves to another
should they move or want to
change locations. In addition
to the fact that they have the
ability to visit other Curves
in the United States, should
they be out of town.
Laura Hunt and Debra
Osteen invite all ladies who
are interested to.come b} and
see -< for, "themselves ;uwliat

Curves has to offer. Curves
is open Monday through Fri-
day from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00
p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 7:00
p.m. Curves is. located at 36
East Noble Avenue in
Williston and can be reached

Kelly Beckham, Bronson
High School Basketball
Coach who is in his 21st year
of coaching, came to en-
lighten our group about the
basketball team. Currently,
they have a' 13-0 undefeated
record. Playing Williston re-
cently, they were down 2
points with 4.2 seconds left,
and called a time-out. Bron-
son shot a 3-point basket and
won atthe buzzer! What a
great game! They always
have a good rivalry with
Williston. He reported there
are tougher teams ahead-
Mayo at home, Tuesday;
Hamilton County, Thursday;


Tuesday, 18t".- Hawthorne,
home game; Trenton, on Fri-
day.
The Bronson team is the
third best in our District. He
contributes their success to
the good quality of students,
who work hard and play ex-
tremely hard. They are criti-
cal of each other, in a posi-
tive way. The 13-man
Varsity team is made up of
four seniors, seven juniors,
one sophomore, and one
freshman. With the four
seniors, who are relied on
heavily, they have to be care-
ful not to get into foul trou-
ble. Their speed and quick-

With 15, junior varsity and
26 middle school students,

Big Dock In

Cedar Key

Once Again

In The News
Continued from the
January 6, 2005 edition of
the Levy County Journal
By: Toni C. Collins
On Sunday morning, April
16, 1950, a disastrous fire
destroyed approximately 500
feet of the fish dock at Cedar
Key that was owned by Levy
County and totally destroyed
four of the eight fish houses
adjacent to the dock. The
loss to the County and the
businessmen of Cedar Key
was estimated to be
$125,000.
Levy County was finan-
cially unable to reconstruct
the dock, so after several
meetings with local, state
legislators, the Levy County
Board of County Commis-
sioners decided to file an ap-
plication with the federal
government for the necessary
funds to rebuild the Big
Dock. Public Law 352,
which authorized the grant-
ing of funds to public bodies
for public works projects,
had just been approved on
October 13, 1949.
The minutes of the Board
of County Commissioners do
not reflect the amount of
money applied for or how
long it took to reconstruct the
Big Dock'following the fire,
so events following that era
are dim. Photographic re-
cords in the Levy County's
Parks & Recreation Depart-
ment reflect that the Big
Dock was repaired and reno-
vated again in 1963.
The next mention of the
Big Dock was in 1979 when,
it was suggested to the Board
that boats using the dock
overnight help defray the
costs of maintenance by
paying docking charges. The
following rates were put into
place and would d be collected
by.the Dock MIa.rier. 40' ari
over, %10.00: 26' up to 40'.
$5.00; 16' up to 26', $3.00.
.An indication of the
growth of the dock area came-
in April of, 1983 When Mr.
Charles DeCarlo requested.
permission of the Board to
cut the rail on the dock in or-
der to gain access to a pro-
posed building (Harbour-,
master). Mr. DeCarlo
returned in December to re-
quest permission from the
Board to place pilings on the
county right-of-way between
his property and the Dock in
Cedar Key. Permission was
granted. In October, John-
son's Restaurant (Brown
Pelican Restaurant) also re-
quested permission to cut the
rail on the dock in Cedar Key
to allow another entrance.
The Big Dock must have
been doing, a flourishing
business because on May 8,
1984, the county decided to
hire a dockmaster and en-
tered into a contract with Mr.
Don' Ermell to serve in that
capacity. Mr. Ermell was
followed on July 3; 1984 by
Mr. Jerry Brage.
In July of 1974, Gulf Is-
land Marine requested per-
mission to cut the rail on the
dock to allow access to their
business (vicinity of Suwan-


LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


nee Triangle Gallery) and in
August of 1985, Mrs. Helen
Johannesen of "Helen's
Place" requested permission
to cut the guardrail on the
dock for access into her
business.
Labor Day Of 1985 brought
Hurricane Elena and more
destruction to the Big Dock.
Since so much of the Big
Dock had been destroyed, the
Board decided to discontinue
theservices of the docklas-
ter and the position was
eliminated indefinitely.
Although work to' repair
the Big Dock was supposed
to start around the beginning
of June in 1986, a variety of
bureaucratic snafus delayed
the progress. There Was
much discussion among
members of the Board as to
whether the dock should be
rebuilt using the county crew
or ha\ ing a contractor do the
work. It \\as decided thar the
count\ wouldd bid out a con-
tract to perform the con-
struction.
Then, since the county was
charging docking fees, the
Bureau of Submerged Lands
,required a permit to rebuild
and requested an annual lease
in the amount of 50 per
square foot or $2,300. After
some discussion, ,the Board
decided n'ot to charge dock-
ing fees or to supply water or
electricity for boats at the
Dock because the annual fees
collected would not cover the
lease amount to be paid to
the Department of Sub-
merged.Lands. The county
entered into a management
agreement for ten years, with.
option to renew, which
stipulated that there would
be no charge for use of the
Big- Dock and it :would be
used as a public fishing pier,
and boat dock.
The Board then learned
that the repairs on the 'dock,
would d need to be started be-
fore February 1987 in order
to continue to be eligible for
FEMA funds for the,storm
damage. In addition, wet
weather in Georgia delayed
Setting construction materials
and the Board discussed the'


possibility of rebidding, for
new dock materials.
By the beginning of May
1987, all materials ordered
for the reconstruction of the
dock were received and con-
struction commenced. Con-
struction of the Big Dock
was finished by Labor Day
of 1987 and the County, hired
a Dock Caretaker to make-
sure all boats were tied up
properly.
The Dock Caretaker ran
into problems over the week-
end of July 4k in 1989 when
a shrimp boat pulled into the
Cedar Key dock and was
selling shrimp from the boat.
The captain of the boat ig-
nored the dockmaster when
he told the captain of the
county regulation prohibiting
the sale of shrimp from the
dock. The Board immedi-
ately enacted !an' ordinance
"giving -county la\w enforce-
ment officers the ability\ to
prohibit future acti\ ity of this
type.
At the July 3, 1990 meet-
ing of,the Board, Mr. Rich-
ard E. Guyer, who was reno-
vating Frog's Landing
Restaurant, requested per-
mission to remove the guard-
rail on. the dock in order to
allow him to construct a deck
around the restaurant. .The
request was granted.'
In June of 1991, the De-
partment of the Army re-
quested permission to use the
Cedar Key Dock for exer-
cises the) would be holding
iii the area on June 12 and
June 14, 1991. The exercise
would involve the use of two
Boats 75 feet long. The
Board approved the request.
March of 1993 brought an-
other closing of the Big Dock
due to the "No Name" storm.
The main support beam was
-knocked off the pilings dur-
ing the March 12, 1993 storm
when a very large': boat
moored at the dock during'
the storm caused much of the
damage sustained by the
structure. The county engi-,
neer explained to the Board
that the dock's repair would
be a major project, a large
marine .crane would 'be
needed to carry out the re-
pairs, and the county did' not
have the capability to per-
form. the repairs. The esti-
mated cost for repairs was
$84,099.70 which the county
submitted to FEMA for
funding. FEMA contributed
25 percent of the cost of the
project and the Big Dock re-
opened Labor Day of 1993.
Labor Day of 2004 would
prove to be another milestone
in the history of the Big
Dock .as Hurricane Frances
swept through Levy County.
The combination of storm
damage and deterioration
took its toll on the structure
and the county engineer de-
clared the facility unsafe and
it was closed to the general
public on September 30th.
The closing of the Big
Dock sent Mathew Weldon,
Assistant Director of Levy

The Big Dock in Cedar Key has suffered much
recent storms.


Every February, more than
20 amateur astronomers
* travel to .Cedar Key where
they set uptheir telescopes to
.host a week of public star-
gazing activities. These ac-
tivities take place at several
locations. including two state
parks. .
Dark and starry nights are
getting harder to find around
the United States. Growing
numbers of cit\ lights %wash
the sk of all but the moon
and, a scattering of the
..brighbtciA .i; ai. d planets.
That breathtaking trail of
stars across the sk\, the
Milk\ Wa\ our home gal-
axy is lost to view. .City
dwellers do iot appreciate
what they're missing until
they have an opportunity\ 'to
see the eight sk\ far from the
harsh glow of cit\ lights.
That's what happened to
one couple, from New York
City. In 1996, the\ went
camping at a state park in
Pennsylvania. When night
fell, the two were astonished
to see many more stars than
they could at home. Also at.
the park during the couple's
camping -excursion was
Thom Benius. an enthusiastic
amateur astronomer and vol-
unteer educator. He was
happ0 to share his expertise
and his telescope to acquaint
the pair with: a view of a
night .they had ne'er wit-
nessed. -
His experience with the
,star-struck couple gave him
'an idea. Bemus knew that
state and local parks in re-
mote areas protect many
natural resources, including
dark, nighttime skies.
Through his \ork with other
astronomy enthusiasts, he
also knew that there wTere
armies of stargazers looking
both for dark-sky locations
and opportunities to share
their celestial passions with.
the public. Like a star going
nova, the realization flashed
in his mind remote dark-
sky parks and a corps of vol-
unteer astronomer/educators
were two resources that
needed to be joined.

County Parks & Recreation,
scrambling for a source of
funds for reconstruction. On
October 12,, 2004, the County
applied to the,;Florida De-
partment of Natural Re-

Perhaps this popular land-.
mark will be re-opened to the
public by next Labor Day.
After all, Labor Day seems to
be a significant day in the

Over the next few years,
Bemus worked with the Na-
tional Public Observatory
(NPO), an: astronomy educa-
tion organization, to develop
a program called -Stars-n-
Parks." On the NPO website,
Bemus writes, "Stars-ni-Parks
would act not only to help
prefer e and utilize dark-sky
encla\ es around the country,
but it would also be the per-
fect vehicle to, reach thou-:
sands of people when they
are under the only dark skies
they normally experience,
those oer a rura'f i'ark."
Bemus launched the program
at the park \\here the idea
was born. A dozen parks
across the nation 'are, now
program participants.
The Cedar Key Star Party
is a week-long Stars-n-Parks
event that premiered in 2001
and now takes place every
February. Cedar Key is one
of Florida's best locations for
winter stargazing with dark,
clear skies and mild tem-
peratures. During the, 1990s.
Thom Bemus and his wife
discovered Cedar Key in
their search for a respite from
the cold, cloud-covered,
winter skies, of their North-
east home. With two state
parks in, the area, the Cedar'
Key Museum and Cedar Key
Scrub Reserve, the location
%%as an obvious choice as a
Stars-n-Parks venue. The
Florida Park .Service agreed
to help sponsor the star party,
hosting public education ac-
tivities at the two parks.
The public events for this
)ear's star party will take
place Monday through Fri-'
day, February 7th through
11th The Cedar Key Mu-
seum will host two nights of
astronomy slide shows and
star-gazing where the public
can look through telescopes
provided by Stars-n-Parks
volunteers. At the Cedar
Key Scrub Reserve, partici-
pants are encouraged to bring
along their binoculars for a
night nature and stargazing
hayride.
Sky watching isn't strictly
a nighttime activity, how-
ever. At the Florida Marine
Research Institute in Cedar
Key, volunteers set up their
telescopes each weekday
morning for day-time solar
and lunar observing.
Every year, Bemus recruits
more than 20 astrono-
mer/educators who bring the
wonders of the night sky
down to Earth. For their ef-
forts, the star-gazers, are re-
warded with an opportunity
to enjoy four nights of pri-

tively working to conserve
natural resources on their
private lands.' The length of
the agreement will range
from five to ten years with
annual payments based on
length of agreement and the
level or "tier" of conserva-
tion practices by the partici-
pant(s).
The United States has 202
watersheds. Eventually the
CSP program will be phased
into each watershed in the
country. It is anticipated that
the CSP program will reward
the best conservationist and
motivate the rest of the
country's conservationists.

"You've Never Heard A
Speaker Like David Ring!"
Nationally known speaker
David Ring will be speaking
at Trenton First Baptist
Church on Sunday morning,
February 13, 2005 at 10:00
a.m. You won't want to miss
the opportunity of being
blessed by hearing this man's
testimony. It will change
your outlook on life.
David was born with cere-
bral palsy on October 28,
1953 in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
After being orphaned at an
early age, David was cast
about from "pillar to post."
Life seemed worse than
hopeless to him until his re-
lationship began with Jesus
Christ who taught him .self
respect and an acceptance of
his physical challenges.
As a nationally known
speaker since 1973, David
shares his story with over
100,000 people each year at


churches, conventions,
schools and corporate events.
He has been featured on nu-
merous occasions on The Old
Time Gospel Hour with Rev-
erend Jerry Falwell, as well
as other nationally televised
and radio programs.
David always focuses on
an individuals' need to over-
come personal handicaps and
advetsities of life. As one
who has not been stifled by
his physical limitations, he
clearly states his challenge to
everyone, "I have Cerebral
Palsy, What's Your- Prob-
lem?" To most, physical
challenges of this magnitude
would prove to be a tomb-
stone. For David Ring, his
coming of age was, and re-
mains, a milestone.

may call Trenton First Bap-
tist Church at 463-2038. The
church is located on Wade
Street, two blocks east of the

Re-Creation
"Food Check Re-Creation To Be At
Out Day" Is ConcordBaptist Church
February 7 oncor apur


By February 7th, the aver-
age American will have
earned enough income to pay
for the entire year's food,
supply, and state agriculture
leaders are encouraging Flo-
ridians to remember the ef-
forts of the farmers who
make this feat possible.
"Americans enjoy the saf-
est, most abundant and most
affordable food supply on
*earth," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said.. "Based on
U.S. Department of Agri-
culture statistics, it takes just
37 days for the average
American. to earn enough
disposable income to pay for
his or her family's food sup-
ply for the entire year."
Thanks to modern farming
techniques, America's farm-
ers and ranchers are produc-
ing more food 'on fewer
acres.. leaving more open
sgace., ,for \ wildlife habitat:
Precision farming practices
boost crop yields and overall
efficiency by using satellite
maps andi computers to
match seed, fertilizer and
crop protection applications
to local soil conditions.
"Food Check-Out'Day is a
celebration of the bount\
from America's farms and
ranches and how that bounty
is shared \%ith American con-
Ssumers through affordable
food prices." said Carl Loop,
president of the Florida Farm:
Bureau Federation. "Com-
pared to other expenses fac-.
ing America's families, food
is a bargain. While Ameri-
cans must only work until
early February to pay for
their yearly food supply, last
Year they had to work until
April 11th to pay for 'their
taxes."
The idea for Food Check-
Out Day was developed by
the American Farm Bureau
Women's Committee and
was first observed in 1998
with an event in Chicago.
Since then, observances have
been held, respectively in
Phoenix, Nashville, Philadel-
phia, Las Vegas, New Or-
leans, and Jacksonville. This
year's event will be held in
Orange County, California.
More than 24 million
American workers repre-
senting 17 percent of the to-
tal U.S. workforce produce,
process, sell and trade the
nation's food and fiber.
However, only 4.6 million of
those people live. on farms,
which is slightly less than
two percent of the total U.S.
population. There are 2.13
million farms dotting Amer-
ica's rural landscape.
Florida's 44,000 commer-
cial farmers grow more than
280 different crops. Florida
is the nation's "winter salad
bowl," providing 80 percent
of the fresh vegetables grown
in the United States during
January, February and March
of each year. Year-round,
Florida ranks No. 2 nation-
ally in the U.S. production of
fresh vegetables. Agriculture

New Outreach
Program For
Adults Over 55

Typical complaints, such
as fatigue, aches and pains,
confusion, sleeplessness,
nerves, and bowel troubles
often hide more damaging,
life-threatening health
problems for older adults.
According to the iU.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services, the most
unrecognized, underesti-
mated and under treated
health issues for adults over
50 are: drinking too much,
indulging in the dangerous
behavior of mixing alcohol
and prescription medica-
tions and misusing, often
unintentionally, or abusing
prescriptions and over-the-
counter medications.
Today more than half of
all older adult hospitaliza-
tions result from adverse
drug reactions. Rates for al-
cohol-related hospitaliza-
tions among older adults
are similar to those for heart
attacks.
Prevention, intervention
and medical treatment will
renew older adults' health,
independence and produc-
tivity for years to come and
greatly reduce lifetime
health care costs for the in-
dividual.
In 1956, the American
Medical Association recog-
nized alcoholism as a
chronic disease, which is
progressive and fatal unless
treated. Likewise, prescrip-
tion medication depend-
ency is a treatable medical
condition, v. which is also life-
threatening if not treated.
Many older people grew
up belie\ ing that alcoholism
or drug dependence was a
moral issue and that over-
coming it was, a matter of
willpow\er. Many still be-
lie\c this misconception to-
day; making it hard- for
older people and their
families to admit the need
for help. Older adults may
refuse to recognize their al-
cohol or medication de-
pendence due to rear aitt
shame.
Family members may
actually enable the condi-
tion to progress by pro-
tecting the older adult or
ignoring the problem due
to shame and frustration.-:
Friends or neighbors may
think that an older adult "is


too respectable or too old to
have a substance problem."
and is a Chemical dependency has
illiston nothing to do \vith age or
s also a personality; it is a disease.
)r Beta Nice older people can have
ie state' this disease.
Junior In order to raise aware-
ee and ness in the community of
national this hidden, yet treatable
)rleans, health condition, an out-
ations.' reach specialist representing
a local behavioral service
provider is currently deliv-
ering' informative presenta-
tions to various' medical
staffs, health care agencies,
elder meal and service sites
'and senior social groups in
the Gainesville and rural
Tri-county area.
The presentation consists
m is a of helpful tips for the safe
use of alcohol and medica-
course tions and a powerful video
mature entitled, It Can Happen to
I over. A ',one, produced by
r day :AARP.' The video highlights
rson, mature men and women in
Iri'ers recovery, not actors, who
nd de- are leading vibrant, healthy
Driving lives after overcoming their
re no problem with alcohol' and
mbers medications dependence.
S The National Council on
e may Aging maintains that fo-
cusing on older adult treat-
S ment solutions is also a wise
investment for our society
because, if left untreated,
elder substance' abuse will
continue to place a monu-
mental burden on the na-
III, tion's healthcare system,
5- II due to the significant im-
.PM pact on society of the
'4 ft. "baby boomer" genera-
P1 I'M tion, those born from 1946-
14 ft 1964, as that'group ap-
tO PM preaches retirement.
Many "boomers," unlike
the current group of elders,
will present an additional
obstacle for the health care
community due to their il-
licit drug use in addition to
alcohol and prescription
medications, thus affecting
each and every, citizen,


Since the older adult
population is steadily
growing and living longer,
it is imperative that those
who live with or near elders
and those who provide
services for them become
more educated about this
serious medical condition
and seek support in con-
fronting the older adult with
genuine compassion.
Older adults deserve the
highest quality of life. And
the good news is, according
to research, that older adults
have the highest success rate
for completion of treatment
than any other age group.
Contrary to the ageism or
prejudice against older
adults present in our soci-
ety, older people can learn
and change.
As the number of older
adults who are willing to ac-
cept help grows; the treat-
ment services: -available at
the Gainesville facility will
become increasingly age-
specific. '-1.?
Being able to relate to
people of the same age with
many of the same symp-
toms, beha-iors and health
issues \\ill promote a suc-
cessful reco'e ry for the
participants. The approach
is non-confrontational and
supportive and is conducted
at. a slower, more relaxed
pace in order to accommo-
date older adults' specific
physical and emotional
health needs.
Depending on the severit)
of the medical condition, an
individual may require:/ a
combination 3,of services,
such as detoxification, resi-
dential treatment, out-
patient counseling-or in-
patient hospital "deto\," if
the individual, is frail or too
ill.
Services are:,provided for
privately insured individu-
als, Medicaid recipients and
the homeless. Some services
are supplemented b\ the
State of Florida.
As professionals and.
family members' continue to
emerge frpm denial,. every
citizen will. benefit signifi-
cantly, by., the,.reduction of

New Rules Are
Now In Effect
To Manage
Red Grouper,
Dolphin And
Wahoo

The Florida Fish and
wildlifee C- conservation
Commission (FWC)-reminds
anglers that gew rules are
notm in effect to manage icd
grouper, dolphin and wa-
hoo.
SThe d:iiled recreational bag
limit for red ,grouper now is
two fish per person (within
the five-fish aggregate
grouper limit) in Gulf of
Mexico state "w\atLrs. This
limit also applies in Gulf'
federal waters. Florida state
waters extend""9 "nautical
miles offshore in thie gulf,
and federal waters extend
beyond state waters.
The new limit on recrea-
tional red grouper harvest is
intended .to help rebuild red.
grouper' stocks in the gulf.'
The minimum size limit for
red grouper remains at 20
inches total length, and the
daily recreational bag limit
in Atlantic Ocean state wa-


ters is still five fish per per-
son (under the five-grouper
aggregate limit).
In addition, new manage-
ment rules ar"'in place for
dolphin and wahoo. These
rules are intended to be
consistent with recently im-
plemented regulations for
dolphin and wahoo in At-
lantic Ocean federal waters,
which were developed to
prevent over-fishing of
these species. The FWC has
also implemented other
measures to protect dolphin
and wahoo in state waters.

By Portia Sache
No basketball or football
team is complete without
cheerleaders. The Chiefland
Middle School basketball
team may have one of the
peppiest cheering squads to
cheer them on to victory.
The CMS cheerleader
squad is made up of fifteen
sixth, seventh, and eighth
grade girls that have a pas-
sion for cheering. Cheer-
leader sponsor, Susie
Slaughter, says the girls are
some of the most enthusiastic
that she has coached. Most
of them have been involved
in some other athletic activity.
or have a background in
dance or gymnastics that
serves to enhance their abil-
ity to jump and do routines.
The eighth graders ser e i
co-captains for the team.
They are -Maegan Brock,
Ashley Cole, Brianna
Collins,. Taylor Jones and
Tiffany Slaughter., These
girls are e senior members
of the squad and have
cheered before.
Seventh graders on the
team are .Erika Drummond,,
Alyssa Guerry, Danielle
Kearns, Lacee Lane, Kate
Smith and Morgan Smith.
Some of the seventh graders
cheered last year but some
are cheering for the first
time.


Sixth graders are cheering
for the first time. They are
Kaylin Hastings, Johnieka
Macon, Brittany Smith and
Lyndsie Stalvey.
Some of the young cheer-
leaders are already looking
forward to becoming junior
varsity and varsity cheer-
leaders. They hope to be-
come mentors for future
middle school cheerleaders
as some of the junior varsitI
and varsity team has been for
them.
