LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Nothing like a tape to set the re-
cord straight.
Or so two county officials learned
last Thursday, when what they said
they hadn't said at a public hearing
was dramatically contradicted by an
audio tape a citizen played for
county commissioners.
Planning Commission Attorney
Scott Shirley and Planning Official
Bob Arredondo ultimately had to
admit that yes, they had indeed said,
what the citizens claimed they had
said. And they would, they said,
abide by their recorded statements,
1. their credibility suffer.
The issue revolved around the re-
quested rezoning of a 73-acre prop-
erty just south of 1-10 and east of
US 19 from agriculture-5 (Ag-5) to
residential-1 (R-l). Ag-5 allows one
house per five acres; R-l allows one
house per acre.
The rezoning is part of a Compre-
hensive Plan Amendment that com-
missioners have had to reschedule
twice because the public hearings
have been improperly advertised.
Last Thursday's hearing began
with an immediate challenge to the
appropriateness of the latest adver-
tisement.
The sum of Cindy and Don Lee's
charges: the advertisement failed to
identify the specific property by sec-
tion, township and range as required
by the county's rules; the advertise-
ment erroneously cited an ordinance
dealing with linear transmission
lines, not the subdivision of land;
and contradictory to their public
statements, Shirley and Arredondo
had failed to post the appropriate
signs on the property to alert area
residents of the coming change.


In response to commissioners'
questions concerning the validity of
the Lees' objections, Shirley labeled
each charge immaterial or irrelevant.
"The advertisement is sufficient,"
Shirley responded time after time to
Commission. Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner's questions about the appropri-
ateness of the advertisement.
That's when the Lees produced
their ace in the hole -- a tape record-
ing of an Oct. 14, 2004, Planning
Commission meeting in which, the
Lees said, Shirley and Arredondo
had repeatedly promised that signs
would be posted on the property.
The Lees said they could provide'
the. tape, .Aoinile l. i atiape player, in
a matter of minutes if commission-
ers wanted to hear it. They were cer-
tain that commissioners would find
the discussion most entertaining,
they said.
"I don't think you should conduct
this meeting because .you're in vio-
lation," Don Lee warned.
Shirley and Arredondo back-
tracked a little. It was possible that
they may have stated what the Lees
claimed they had said, they said. But
if they had, they didn't remember it.
A great many things- had been dis-
cussed at the particular meeting. If
they had made such a promise, it
had been a misstatement on their
part, they said.
"It would be surprising to me if
that's the way the discussion went,"
Shirley said. "But I haven't listened
to the tape."
"It's possiblethat I misstated the
situation," Arredondo said. "But
then, looking at the state statute
later, I followed the statute, which
does not require posting."
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin and
Alan Saucier, spokesman for the de-
veloper, argued for continuation of
the public hearing. The mistakes


made in the advertisement, if they
were mistakes, were minor scribners
errors, they said. The errors could
be corrected in the advertisements
for the second required public hear-
ing. But the project shouldn't be de-
layed yet again, they said.
Bob Tirelli, an area resident, dis-
agreed. He didn't consider the errors
or the proposed changes to be a mi-
nor matter., Rather, he saw the lack
of posting as a "breach of faith", and
the proposed rezoning as the first of
a planned series of land-use changes
amounting to spot zoning.
"There are hundreds of acres for
sale in this area that are intended for
development," Tirelli said. "This is
not an individual parcel. This is spot
zoning at its worst. The last time the
citizens of this area were asked what
they wanted during the last Comp
Plan amendment, the people spoke
loud and clear and said they wanted
five-acre parcels. This is nibbling
away at the zoning and the whole
area is changing without a plan.
This is not just one parcel. Don't be
deluded. This is a like a stealth
change and the will of the people is
being thwarted."
Arredondo reiterated that he had
followed state statutes in advertising
the Comp Plan amendment, and
state statutes did not require the
posting of signs of the land to be re-
zoned.
"I've been to Planning Commis-
sion meetings and we've been told
directly that signs would be posted,"
countered Tirelli. "This is a breach
of faith with the residents to now
say that signs don't have to go up."
The Lees again offered to play the
tape.
"Mr. Arredondo says the placards
are not required by state statute,"
Cindy Lee said. "But on Oct. 14,
Mr. Arredondo and Mr. Shirley
were asked and we were told that
signs would be posted. The Plan-
ning Commission asked over and
over again that the signs be posted.

Memorial Day Will Honor All


Who Made Supreme Sacrifice


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Memorial Day is a day of remem-
brance for those who have died in
the service of our nation.
On the 50th anniversary of World
War II, Paul A, Spera, National
Commander-in-Chief, of the Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars, wrote that
more than 12 million Americans
served overseas during World War
II.
The cost to the United States
alone, was more than $288 billion,
with more than 786 million indi-
viduals perishing around the world,
Spera wrote.
"Because of the sacrifices of more
than 12 million Americans, who
served overseas, and another four
million who wore the uniform state-
side, would-be world dictators rec-
ognized that free men and women
will fight and prevail when their
freedoms are at stake.
"Because of these sacrifices,


Americans were never forced to de-
fend their own homes," Spera wrote.
Memorial day was originally
called Decoration Day, and began in
the spring of 1866, when Henry C.
Welles, a pharmacist in Waterloo,
NY, suggested that patriots who
died in the Civil War should be hon-
ored by decorating their graves.
Townspeople made wreaths,
crosses, and bouquets for each vet-
eran's grave.
The village was decorated with
flags at half mast and a processon to
the town's cemeteries was held.
Decoration Day was officially
proclaimed by General John Logan,
May 5, 1868, when flowers were
placed on the graves of Union and
Confederate soldiers at Arlington
National Cemetery.
By 1890, it was recognized by all
of the northern states.
As late as the 1940's, it was com-
mon for Northern cities and towns
to decorate the downtown area with
red, white, and blue bunting, in pa-
triotic displays.


The South refused to acknowledge
the day, honoring its dead on sepa-
rate days, until after World \'i r ',
when the holiday changed .1,cr2
honoring just those who died in the
Civil War, Americans who died in
any war, and the day was renamed
Memorial Day.
Of all the County residents who
died in the service of the country,
Sgt. Ernest "Boots" Thomas is im-
mortalized by the monument on US
90 West, commemorating the rais-
ing of the US Flag on Mt. Suribachi,
Feb. 23, 1945, signifying the US
victory over Iwo Jima.
Following the capture of Lvi. Suri-
bachi, Thomas and th. 28th Ma-
rines moved to battle on the
opposite side of the island, where he
was killed by enemy fire, March 3,
1945.
Though no complete listing of
County natives who died in the serv-
ice of our country is known, this
much is known:
*During the Civil War, three men
were killed in action: George John-


son, William Johnson and
Augustine Kyle.
*In the Spanish American War,
William Denham Pasco was killed
in action.
*Other County natives who made
the supreme sacrifice include:
Clemon Alexander, Leroy Bell,
Homer Bird, Will Bolen, Marion
Bradshaw, Caradine Braswell,
David Chancy,, Harrison Connell,
Earl Cooksey, and Olin Cooksey.
Also, Thomas Daniel, Alphonzo
Ganzy, Robert Hair, George Hamp-
ton, Raymond Hatcher, Eddie Jack-
son, Sammy Jenkins, Sylvester
Johnson, Haywood Jordon, and
Railford Kersey.
Also, Craig Knight, William
Lloyd, Russell Malloy, James Mas-
sey, Ernest Mills, Maynard
McCleod, Russell Platt, Richard
Plummer, Kenneth Rector, Joe Reg-
ister, Richard Russ, Fleming
Thompson, Harold Thompson, Ray-
mond Thompson, and Otto Walker.

,,'Justin Wainright, a US Navy
SEAL on temporary leave from his
assignment in war-torn Iraq, shared
srtne. of his military experiences
wI"th.Kiwanians last week.
;Wainright, in fact, was part of the
eg te unit charged-with the protec-
ti n of Iraq's top five government
lcders, including the country's
prime minister.
g-n the whole, Wainright said, the
media's portrayal of the situation in
Iraq "is pretty accurate."
"You're not seeing everything,"
he said. "It depends on who you're
watching. But they're pretty accu-
rate. They're not showing all the
bd things or all the good things;.
tit overall, they're pretty much on
the mark."
pWainright described Iraq as a
place where car bombs, rocket ex-
plosions and mortar fire are a daily
and almost common occurrence. ,!,
S"We get 15 to 30 car bombs a
day," Wainright said. "And the mor-'
tars land nonstop. Any time can be
your time...At any moment, a 'ehi-
cle can blow up. When they blow
up, it goes right through the armor.
Any time can be your time to go."
He called the protection of the
Iraqi prime minister and the coun-
try's four othdr top leaders an in-
tense and demanding job that
quickly burned out those charged
with providing, the protection.
Hence the rotation of the details
every three months, he said.
"We wrapped up guys that were
the prime minister's own guards and
they were trying to kill him," Wain-
right said, explaining that wrapping
up meant arresting or bounding sus-
pects in tape to restrain them.
One of the high points of the job,
he said, was getting to meet high-
ranking US officials, such as Secre-
tary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld,
Senator John McCain and Senator
Hillary Clinton.'

"You are right there," he said. "It
was a great experience. But I rather
do SEAL work."
He talked of participating in night
operations to arrest suspected insur-
gents. This entails going out past
midnight, blowing down doors, and
rushing into suspect's house to ar-
rest them.
"It's pretty crazy," Wainright said,
describing bursting into dwellings
that are full of people, including
children and elderly folks. The idea
is not to shoot unless it's absolutely
necessary, he said. But sometimes,
they had "to deal" with people.
"You get more intelligence out of
someone alive than dead," Wain-
right said. "Most people we take
down, their families don't even
know that they are insurgents. Peo-
ple who get in the way, we deal with
with deadly force. We have got the
best target identification system in
the world. We don't go in there
praying and spraying. We surgically
remove."
Wainright, who has re-enlisted for
another four years, also talked about
the toughness of the Navy SEAL
training, which he described as
"nonstop hammering to get you into
shape".
"The first few weeks, the instruc-
tors are really cool and nice," he
said. "Then they slam you, and peo-
ple start quitting."
Indeed, out of the 187 SEAL


candidates who started in his class,
17 actually graduated, Wainright
said. The others quit along the way,
unable to withstand the rigors of the
training.
"The best of the best came there
and they had the intention to be.-
come a SEAL," Wainright said.
"But you can only take it for so
long. During hell week, you. lose.
most of the'guys."
He described hell week as lasting,


sun. It's called surf torture. Guys get
pneumonia. My buddy was dying.
They pull him out, made him better
and put him back in. After six
months of training, I lost eight guys
right before graduation."
Wainright said those who qualify
then go on to the basic SEAL train-
ing, followed by airborne school
and cold training in Alaska. Once
that training is completed, the
rluates are assigned to 16-men


5-2 days, during which time train- platoons that then train together as a
ees are allowed 2-V hours of sleep, team for another year before they

carrying boats," Wainright said, de- "We can go into a house and we
scribing some of the exercises. "It's all know exactly where we're going
tons of fun. At night, you crawl to go," Wainright said. "We all re-
down into the water to chase the ceive the identical training."

It's difficult for the public to know
about zoning changes when the pro-
cedures are not followed."
Bud Wheeler, a Planning Com-
mission member, confirmed the
Lees' assertions.
"We have askci, demanded, that
signs be posted on every change that
comes before us so that the public
does not feel that they've been
hoodwinked," Wheeler said. "The
Planning Commission has de-
manded that that be done hundreds
of times."
Commissioner Danny Monroe, a
former member of the Planning
Commission, supported Wheeler.
"It was the intent of the Planning
Commission to have signs posted
for every change," Monroe said.
"How it's written in the minutes, I
don't know. But I know it was the
intent that every land-use change
have signs posted."
Lloyd area resident Tom LaMotte
pointed out that notwithstanding the
benign seeming nature of the
proposed change -- a rezoning rather
than a preliminary plat for a
subdivision -- the end result was the
same. A developer, in other words,
would not be asking for a rezoning
unless the ultimate aim was to
develop the property, he said.
"This is a development," LaMotte
said. "This is a movement .to a big
change out there, even if we call it
something else like a Comp Plan
amendment. I'm concerned about
the density change. And once the
change' is made, it's too late to
change it back. This is putting the
cart before the horse. There should
be protection for area residents."
Faced with ,the overwhelming
testimony -- including the tape,
which commissioners finally agreed
to listen to and which confirmed the
Lees' assertions -- the board voted
4-1 to postpone and re-advertise the
hearing. Sutphin cast the lone vote.
"If the Planning Commission
requested that signs go up, I'd like
to see the signs go up,"
Commissioner Junior Tuten said. "If
we told folks that we would put
signage up, it's the fault of our
department that they are not up. We
should be responsible for our
actions."
Joyner concurred.
"If the Planning Commission re-
quested that the signage be put up,
we need to do exactly what we said
we would do," Joyner said. "We've
got to bring clarity to this issue."
Shirley pointed out that the re-
advertising would delay the matter
several more months, as the Depart-

ment of Community Affairs ulti-
mately had to review and approve
the change. Even so, he thought the
delay was warranted.
"In terms of the credibility of Bob
Arredondo and myself, I feel the
signs should be up before the hear-
ing," Shirley said.

We Owe Debt To


Nation's War Dead


BY BISHOP DAVID R. BROWN
American Legion Chaplain

More than 1 million men and
\x omen have lost their lives fighting
for freedom in the U.S. Armed
forces. We can never reimburse the
price they paid. We can summon no
words to allay the pain of their
loved ones. We can. and we should.
honor America's war-dead on Me-
morial Day.
SWe, as beneficiaries of Ameri-
can's departed heroes, should make
three pledges on Memorial Day to
ensure that the Supreme Sacrifice of
our nation's war-dead never will be
in' vain.
.The first pledge we should make is
to; fly the U.S. Flag and to partici-
pate in our community's commemo-
rative events. America's patriots
shed their blood in defense of our
nation's .core -.alu '.:f tiedi m. j us-.,.
rice and equality as well as the U.S.
Flag that symbolizes our values.
Memorial Day should unify all
Americans in solemn tribute to those
who did not come marching home
and to consecrate the principles for
which they fought.
The second pledge we should
make is to teach our 'children and
grandchildren that the freedom they
may take for granted were pur-
chased by incredible sacrifice. When
we lead by example, by bringing our
children and grandchildren with us
to Mepiorial Day public observa-
tions. we teach the leaders of tomor-
row that freedom is not free.


The third pl I- 'r; to participate
in our dem( c'-c in order to give
patriots-present the best opportunity
to triumph against evil.
Today's troops form the light of
hope that pierces the darkness of
tyranny.
These contemporary pledges flow
from the earliest -iaditic'ns of Me-
morial Day. Southern women in the
spring of 1865 planted flowers on
the graves of Confederate war-dead.
Gen. John Logan, commander, in
chief of the Grand Army of the Re-
public, an organization of Union
veterans. ordered his group to deco-
rate the graves of Union troops on a
uniform date in 1868.
These and, other commemorations
would give'rise to the first national
Memorial Day observance on May
30. 1868. at Arlington National
Cemetery. Gen. James Garfield,.
key.ie ",p.g ..foiO,, die observance.
.... iln.'l,, i ,'-e l, ,r.t ibrll,.,l~ives-'.figlht-
ing for freedom engaged in the ulti-
mate expression of humanity's
"highest virtuess" The general was
right!
More than 1 million men and
women, preponderantly of modest
means and infinite courage, sacri-
ficed all of their tomorrow's while
fighting for American's unifying
"virtues."
Surely we can honor their
sacrifice. transmit the values for
which they fought and preserve the
"common defense" that is liberty's
backbone. By our vigilance, the sac-
rifices of America's departed heroes
shall never be in vain.


Steroid Use Besmirches

Major League Baseball


BY REX M. ROGERS
Columnist

What comes to mind when you
hear the name Mark McGwire? Is it
that he holds the Major League
Baseball record for home runs in
one season or that in all probability
le used steroids to help accomplish
this feat? Talk about a sad summer.
Tills is it.
*MLB's steroid-mess did not start
w ith McGwire. Names like Jose
C'anseco and Jason Giambi also
headline this story. Steroids and
other illegal chemical substances
are, plain and simple, a form of
cheating. Increasingly common use
of performance-enhancing drugs
nieans fans cannot trust any of
baseball's statistics in the past 15
years. Who's to say that a player
achieved greatness or that lie hit his
loftv plateau only because he was
juiced'.'
-MLB steroids is not yet old news.
Stay tuned for more developments.
Itrs a story that involves selfish am-
bition. cheating, lying, squandered


talents, and fallen heroes -athletes
we hoped would be role models for
our children. And they are. just the
wrong kind. God tells us to "Avoid
every kind of evil" (I Thess. 5:22).
Not even superstars are above this
injunction:
Illegal steroids use breaks sports'
code of honor. It threatens both the
integrity of the game and the will-
being of the athletes. It robs sports.
in this case baseball, of its purity
achievement that lifts the soul.
Baseball will survive this crisis.
But the MLB needs to clean up its
act, adopting and especially enforc-
ing appropriate policies, holding
high 'the standard of fair-play. Dat-
ing to at lease ancient Greece, one
of the great glories of sport is its
many metaphors for real life.
This is another one: character mat-
ters. Major League Baseball is a mo-
rality play. It's time to put morality
back in play.

author and president of Cornerstone
University,. Grand Rapids, Mich.,

Opinion & Comment


U Short Takes & Other Notions


BY MERRY ANN FRISBY


Tie weather this spring has been
wondrotisly cool. So cool and lovely
that many folks are out working in,
their yards. The large piles of yard
waste on the curbside is evidence of
this work. It is pleasurable to talk to
the neighbors when you see them in
their yards.
The resulting yards ate 'a glorious'
'sighi- Camellia's'' fade "as'the bullbsi
spring up, flowering tress sport'
showy blooms. As much as I dislike
honeysuckle vines, which tangle and
snarl up the azaleas, the flowers


or drive around and just peek at the
folk's yards. It almost feels like
snooping, but I expect the gardeners
want spectators. Heart thanks to
everyone who works at making their
homes look like art.
Spring causes other behavior. A
mockingbird in my yard dive-bomnbs
his, prospective sweetie. He then
abruptly latches on to a limb or a
lawn ijil anJ ioni-,.. t., i screech-
ing.halI T1irL uI'Al,, '.cjie'l"the less
bold birds away m.l 1 .: scatter into
the closet bush to'gehtway from the
harrier-jet bird.
After the bird of his affection


really do smell sweet. I love to walk looks his way, he stretches out his


wings as far as they will go, puffs up
his chest and flutters. What a specta-
cle! What mockingbirdette could re-
sist'?
Not to be outdone by the birds, the
little green lizards crawl all over the
porch seeking the sun. Once they
are sufficiently warmed up, the boys
blow up the red balloon nested un-
der their chin. Then they too began
to flutter and bobble. They sort of
lopk like the bobbing' dog-heads and
hula-dancing car onameints that you
often see in ..the back of car
windows.

The young men in town are out of
doors also. I have noticed that their


display ot choice may be a truck
with loud tailpipes, or a truck plas-
tered with mud. An alternative is a
car painted so brightly tlat it looks
like a bowling ball on wheels. The
bowling ball car is frequently blar-
ing very loud music.
I have never seen a girl in any of
these cars, and I expect that the
young man who drives such a vehi-
cle is hoping to attract some girl's
attention.
-Hlappy Sprin g to you all. To all
you mockingbirds, green lizards,
and handsome young men: I am sure
the lady of your dreams awaits you
on the next tree branch or just
around the corner.


Teach Kids Value Of Trees


It's easy.to forget, how books and
magazines are mad" and where
newspaper come from.
It's even harder for kids to grasp
how many trees are used just to pro-
duce cereal boxes and colored con-
struction paper'.
Even with computers and elec-
tromec devices, it's estimated more
than four billion trees are cut down
in the world each year a number 10
times larger than that of the U.S.
Population.
These startling facts certainly raise
the issue of the importance of trees
and how they contribute to the earth.
As adults. remembering to con-
serve and recycle is an important
way of life. What's just as important
is to teach our children about the
value of trees.
As parents and mentors, it's criti-
cal that we ingrain these lessons at
an early age.
For the second year, one hotel
company is stepping up to the task,
helping kids get to the "root" of,


community service bh' e,.ialtl'.
ihem on the significance of planting
trees and caring for the
environment.
Doubletree Hotels, with help from
The National Arbor Day
Foundation, has created an interac-
tive lesson plan on environmental
responsibility for teachers and will
provide evergreen tree seedlings to
thousands of elementary school stu-
dents.
This educational initiative is an
extension of Teaching Kids to
CARE, a community outreach pro-
gram which pairs more than 100
boubletree Hotels with local ele-
mentary schools and youth groups
to educate the empower children
about making conscious decisions,
including caring for their commu-
nity.
This year, Teaching Kids to
CARE volunteers and children .will
plant more than 10,000 seedling
trees across the U.S. And Canada.
For parents (and mentors) wanting


to remind kids how important trees
are and involve them ini
environmentally-conscious
activities, here are a few tips:
1. Plant A New "Family Tree" -
Take your kids to a garden or home
store and allow them to select a
young tree to plant at home. Plant
the tree in ja .p'cIal location as a
family, Ja:...:i iInIL' a different task
(digging pamnink watering) to each
family member. Make sure to docu-
ment the activity with a photo, so
kids can remember how small the
tree was when they planted it.
2.Think Globally. Act Locally -
Kids should learn that planting even
one tree makes a difference a full-
grown tree provides enough oxygen
for four humans each day. Chal-
lenge your kids to create enough
oxygen through new trees to support
your entire street...or
neighborhood...or town.
3. TREE-butes The next time a
family holiday (birthdays,
Mother'siFather's/Grandparents'


Day) rolls around, suggest to your
kids that they plant a tree in that per-
son's honor.
Then help them decorate a special
"TREE-bute" greeting card to let the
family member know about the gift.
4. Memor-Trees Just as trees
can be planted to honor someone
important, in your child'slife, re-
mind them' that a new tree symbol-
izes new life and can serve as a
memory of someone (family mem-
ber,/ friend, pet) that has passed
away.
Additionally, groups of Memor-
Trees can be planted to remember
members of the military.
5. Give The Gift of Clean Air -
The next time your child needs to
take a creative gift to school send a
tree seedling for each classmate.
Seedlings that are indigenous to
your region can be obtained inex-
pensively (or free) from the depart-
ment' of forestry, or you can

Delaying Oral Care Harmful


R',al residents are nearly twice as
likely as their urban counterparts to
postpone timely trips to the dentist,
seeking help only after they develop.
a problem and oral pain is severe.
University of Florida researchers re-
port.
The delay in widespread dissatis-
faction with treatment and less than
optimal outcomes.
"What we found is there is a group
of people who wait until their condi-
tion is of sufficient painful intensity
and duration before deciding that
it's bad enough to pick up the phone
and call the dentist," said study in-
vestigator Joseph Riley, Ph.D., an
assistant professor of public health
services and research at UF's Col-
lege of Dentistry. "There is evidence
that these people assume this
problem-oriented approach to oral


health, because of low access to care,
whether that be due to an inability to
pay or the lack of dentists practicing
in rural areas." Riley added.
UF researchers, writing in the
April issue of Public Health Reports.
noted similar trends among blacks
and women, though men with pain-
ful symptoms were the group most
likely to entirely avoid dental visits,
possibly attempting to self-medicate
their pain at home to avoid going to
the dentist.
Over a four-year period, the re-
searchers studied patterns in access
to dental care among 703 randomly
selected people aged 45 years and
older living in rural or urban coun-
ties in North Florida.
Researchers interviewed each par-
ticipant and conducted an oral ex-
amnination at the beginning of the


study. They then conducted follow-
up telephone interviews at six-
month intervals to track financial
status, symptoms of oral pain, and
usage of dental services and treat-
ment. Study participants were also
interviewed in person and under-
went additional oral examinations
two and four years into the study.
Study investigators found rural
residents and people who take a
problem-oriented rather than pre-
ventive approach to oral health care
were more likely to need emergency
dental care for oral pain. People
who live in rural areas and take a
problem-oriented approach of opt-
ing to wait until oral discomfort
worsened were at the highest risk of
anyone for needing pain-related
emergency treatment.
Over the course of the study, 23


percent of the participants experi-
enced at least one emergdhcy dental
visit because of painful symptoms
due to afflictions such as toothaches
and abscesses. Sixty-seven percent
of those who reported an emergency
dental visit due to pain rated their
discomfort severe.
Overall, men were 20 percent less
likely to seek and receive dental
care at all, even when suffering
from severe oral pain.
Only 56 percent of patients who
visited the dentist for emergency
treatment of painful oral conditions
described themselves as "very satis-
fied" with the outcome of their treat-
ment, versus 79 percent of those
who sought urgent care but were
pain-free at the time.
"What we found is that patients

who had urgent dental visits because
of ,ain were less likely to be satis-
fied by the time it took to be seen,
the dental treatment they received
and by the actual outcome of the
visit," said Riley.
Riley said there is nothing unique
about the dental choices people in
rural North Florida make compared
with residents .living elsewhere. The
UF study findings are consistent
with data gathered by the National
Center for Health Statistics, wherein
minority and poor populations carry
the burden of oral health problems,
he said.
"The recent Surgeon General's re-
port on. oral health underscores the
public health impact of oral health
problems in the United States," said
study co-investigator Gregg Gilbert,
D.D.S., M.B.A., F.A.A.H.D., a pro-
fessor and chairman of diagnostic
sciences at the University of Ala-
bama at Birmingham School of,
Dentistry. "Unfortunately, in tihe
oral health area, thosemopst in need
of care are the least likely to get it,
and a significant amount of suffer-
ing and embarrassment, is part of


everyday life for certain segments of
our population."
The U.S. Surgeon General's land-
mark 2000 report on the country's
oral health outlines substantial suc-
cess to care barriers, such, as ability
to pay and a shortage of dentists in
certain areas, and notes 11 percent
of the nation's rural population has
never visited a dentist. The report
also calls the oral cavity the "mirror
of health and disease." More than 90
percent of systemic diseases such
as diabetes, leukemia, cardiovascu-
lar disease and anemia have oral
manifestations, and people who
have neglected their oral health are
more likely to also have other medi-
cal problems.
Riley said he believes that access
to care is not the only factor at play
in determining why people with oral
pain delay seeking dental treatment.
"Dentistry is really about social
and psychological factors: it's per-
spective, and the preventive versus
problem-oriented approach to dental
care is an attitudinal belief," he said.
"Therefore, it's something that can
be changed."

ogy at Lively Technical Institute, in
Tallahassee, and is licensed in Flor-
ida.
Shofner decided to study Cosme-
tology, when she was in her 40's.

Angel was grown, the time was
right," she said.
She has worked at Hair House in
Tallahassee for the past six years,
and prior to that, she owned her own
business in Tallahassee for five
years.
Her newly built Shoppe is a dream
come true, thanks in part to her hus-

"I do have the room for another
worker," she adds.
The Shoppe is a free standing unit.
The interior is trimmed with a

Ward To Attend HOBY

Leadership Seminar


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Aucilla Christian Academy
Sophomore John Ward is one of
100 area students selected to attend
the North Florida Hugh O'Brian
Youth (HOBY) Leadership Semi-'
nar, June 3 5, in Tallahassee..
Students are chosen to attend lthe
seminar based upon demonstrated
leadership and potential for contin-
ued growth in leadership.
HOBY Leadership Seminars
bring together a select group of
high school sophomores with
groups of distinguished leaders in
business, government, education,
and the professions, to discuss pre-
sent and future issues.
The goal is to provide the youth


with a stimulating forum for learn-
ing about critical issues, while
broadening their understanding of
their leadership potential and quest
for self-development.
HOBY Leadership was estab-
lished in 1958 by the popular actor
Hugh O'Brian, following a visit to
Africa, where he was inspired by a
meting ,..ith Dr. Albert
S&> izer.-
'"Oie of the things that Schweit-
zer said to me was the most impor-
tant thing in education is to teach
young people to think for them-
selves," O'Brian said.
"From that inspiration, and with
the support of others who believe
in youth and the American Dream,
I started HOBY to speak out, rec-
ognize, and develop understanding
leadership potential among our na-
tion's youth," he added.

she gets into.
Georgette is also said to be very
excitable and energetic.

Healthy Weight Loss available only at
Jackson's Drug, Hoodiacol is designed to
curb the appetite, burn fat and increase
energy levels resulting in considerable
weight loss over time. Hoodiacol consist of
3 key ingredients incorporated into rice
bran oil with natural flavorings to give it a
palpable taste. In addition to weight loss,
you may see benefits for the hair, skin and
nails from the Omega 3 and Omega 6
found in rice bran oil. Hoodia gordonii is a
cactus found in the Kalahari Desert of
South Africa. Unsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits appetite but
increases the sense of satiety. This tends to
limit total caloric intake by 30-40%
without experiencing hunger. Significant
weight loss should result from such a drop
in caloric intake.

Humane Society Sees 49


Adoptions During April


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer


Members of the Humane Society
learned during their last general
membership meeting that 49 ani-
mals were adopted for the month of
April.
Director of Kennel Operations
Tina Ames advised that during the
month, 39 canines and 19 felines,
for a total of 58 animals, were re-


ceived at the shelter.
The number of animals leaving
the shelter during the month totaled
61. Of these, adoptions numbered
49, consisting of 18 felines and 31
canines.
Five kittens had to be euthanized
because they tested positive for
AIDS.
Two canines died during heart
worm treatment. Three canines
were euthanized because of heart


Of those 3,000 new smokers:
30 will be murdered
60 will die in traffic accidents
750 will die from smoking-related
diseases, including lung cancer,
emphysema and heart disease.

worms. Four canines were eutha-
nized because of aggression and
one canine was returned to the
owner.
Ames expressed appreciation to
Bobbie Golden who got people to
come and wash canines before the
Adopt-a-thon.
She reported that fence repairs
had begun in the dog kennels and
the work is progressing well.
Ames' stated that due to the ani-
mal baby boom, there was need for
another part time person at the
shelter.
She said that they had received
donations totaling a little over
$2,200 for construction of a cov-
ered puppy area, in Tom DeWitt's
name.
She urged members to consider
plans for the area and stated that
she had a- contractor who would
work with them at a very dis-
counted rate. "I can also get many
of the materials donated," she said.
Foster Home Chairperson Martha
Jean Martin advised that there were.
currently 17 animals in foster
homes, including five dogs, two
puppies, three cats and seven kit-
tens.
She added that Karen Moore had
volunteered to conduct adoption
call backs to check with those who
have adopted animals from the
shelter.
"We have some great foster
homes," said Martin. "They're like

Chairperson Martha Canady ad-
vised that the membership pres-
ently stood at 205.
She added that the Society had
reached an anniversary. "This is
the month that we started collecting
memberships last year, and now we
will be sending letters out asking
members to send in their member-

Treasurer Leland Canady advised
that for the month, more money
came in to the shelter than was
spent on the usual necessities.
President Caroline Carswell
stated that the next Board of Direc-
tors meeting is June 6 and the next
general membership meeting is
June 20, both to be held at the shel-
ter at 7 p.m.
