buildingg is planned for the down-
town block just south of the court-
hbuse parking lot.

business Management is the devel-
oper behind the proposed project,
ahd Riley Palmer is the contractor.
The proposed development calls
for a 7,000 sq. foot building to be
constructed one block southeast of
the courthouse circle, on a parcel
woundedd by Walnut St. on the north,
-almer Mill Road on the south, and
(herry St. on the east.
The property, is bounded by the
,.building housing Steve Walker's Re-
alty of the west side.

The proposed building will consist
of three retail spaces (approximately
950 sq. feet each), two office spaces
(approximately 450 sq. feet each)
and .two luxury upstairs apartments
that will overlook the historic town

tion to the town's commercial dis-
trict, providing much needed retail,

Reference potential oil drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico -- which Nelson
ses. said the Secretary of Interior fully
intends to do -- Nelson said he had
an ace up his sleeve.
That ace, he said, was the fact that
most of the Gulf is restricted air-
space -- the only area of such a size
in the country that serves for mili-
tary training. Allow oil drilling in
the Gulf and it would compromise
the training and the country's nmili-
tary preparedness, Nelson said.
"That ace I have is to get the four-
star generals to get the guts to say
we need this for military training,"
As for the Iraq War, Nelson said
ultimately it would take another ad-
ministration to get the country out of
"But we have another three years
(of the present administration) to go
and I believe the crisis will come
before then," Nelson said.
Speaking from what he called per-

he would hate to see the country di-
vided again as it was during the
"We don't want to get to that
split," Nelson said. "The problem is
getting people to put on the table
what is happening."
As an example, he cited the dis-
crepancy between the rosy picture
the Secretary of Defense paints of
the situation in Iraq and what some
in the military are saying.
"The first thing we need is straight
talk, because the American people
are demanding it," Nelson said.
But the bottom line, he said, was
that the US couldn't afford to pull
out and leave it to the Iraqi people to
resolve the problem. If the United
States did that, Nelson said, Al-
Qaida would take over the country
and it would control vast oil re-
"Then they would topple Saudi
Arabia and all the oil states would
fall like dominoes," Nelson said. "If
Al-Qaida has control of all the oil,

The deficit was another area that
Nelson sharply criticized. He
blamed the tax cuts in large part for
the deficit, now in the trillions.
What was needed, he'said, was fis-
cal discipline, something the present
administration and Congress weren't
willing to impose on themselves.
"But if you don't put fiscal disci-
pline on yourself, you have to keep
borrowing," Nelson said. "And who
do you borrow from? China. That's
not a good position to be in."

Opinion & Comment
Without the hard work of Flor-
ida's farmers, cucumber lovers
would really be in a pickle.
Florida produces about 75 percent
of America's spring season cucum-
bers for the fresh market and more
than half of our fall season cukes.
From October through June, pro-
duce bins around the nation are
brimming with deep green, fresh,
fragrant cucumbers from the Sun-
They're moist and weighty, so re-
freshing and cool. Let's say you're
in Buffalo on a dreary winter day -
one whiff, one bite will transport
you far away. You'll find yourself
in a balmy; green Florida .field,
where vines curl and bees buzz and
cucumbers loll in the sun, ripening...
You can almost taste the sunshine
in every slice; The flavor of Florida
cucumbers is delicate, bright, and
sweet, almost meldn-y. Beneath thie
thin, tender skin, the flesh is juicy
The expression "cool as a cucum-
ber" is a cliche that is soundly
rooted in fact. On a hot day the tem-
perature inside a cucumber can be
up to 20 degrees cooler than the air
The cucumber probably originated
in India, its ancestors growing wild
in the foothills of the Himalayas. It
found its way to Florida by a long
and circuitous route; it was a jouir-
ney that took thousands of years.

The long hair debates of my youth
By at least 2000 BC, cucumbers
were being cultivated in India. They
spread to western Asia and China.
When the Romans encountered
cucumbers in Asia, they carried the
seeds home and planted them. The
Romans flavored their cucumbers in
a variety of ways, saturating them
with wine and boiling them with pig
-The Emperor Tiberius liked cu-
cumbers so much that he wanted to
eat them every day, no matter the
season. To that end, he started rais-
ing them in carts that his slaves
could push from one sunny spot to
another in the winter.
It wasn't until the 1300s that the
cucumber was introduced into Eng-
land. It had to be reintroduced in the
1500s, because it had been lost dur-
ing the intervening years of war and
Christopher Columbus planted cu-
cumbers in Haiti, and finally, by the
early 1500s, native peoples in Flor-
ida were growing them too. Early
European settlers in Florida often
served their cucumbers, which could
be quite bitter, in a marinade of
honey, vinegar, and oil.
Today, cucumber production is an
important industry in Florida, which
leads the nation in fresh-market cu-
cumber sales. The state ranks sec-
ond nationally in the production of
cucumbers for the fresh market and
third in the production of cucumbers
for pickling and processing.

National ID Card is Folly
BY TOM DEWEESE
"If you have done nothing wrong,
then you have nothing to fear from
these surveillance policies in the Pa-
There it was the one line that is
continually uttered by those who are
determined to turn America into the
society of Big Brother.
It's the one line that will instantly
bring out my own urge to kill any-
one who has said it.
Now, during a radio interview on
the subject, sitting in my office oh
the opposite end of the telephone, I
heard it said by my host. I had been
feeling the frustration growing
throughout the interview as he dis-
missed my fears of an ajl-seeing,
controlling government that can in-
vade my own home without a search
warrant or even a court order issued
by a real judge.
To him it was perfectly fine to pat
down little old ladies and children in
airports, while those fitting the pro-
file of a terrorist could walk by, pro-
tected by political correctness.
It's OK that all of our personal
lives, our bank accounts, records of
books we've read and videos we've
rented could be searched. And
above all, to him, the greatest idea
yet devised for protecting freedom
in this nation was the creation of a'
national ID card.
"Now," he said, "we can control
who comes in to this nation, where
they go and .who they are dealing
with." "And if you have done noth-
ing wrong you have nothing to
I lost it. "You arrogant, ignorant
SOB," I screamed. "Have you any
idea what living under a national ID
card will be like? Have you given it
the slightest thought beyond your
own selfish, primal fear of some un-
stated threat," I shouted into the
telephone over the airways.
"Well, I spend a majority of my
time looking into this issue and let
me tell you what I've found to be
true. And then, you tell me if this
will be a nation you want to live in."
It was surprising to me that my host
let me talk at this point. Perhaps the
murderous tone in my voice warned
him to stay quiet. Nevertheless, he
let me continue.
"The Real ID bill that has just
passed Congress and will establish a
national ID card within the next 18
months will transform all state mo-
tor vehicle departments into agents
of the federal government. They
have now been told to install a high
tech computer chip into every single
drivers license in every single state.
That chip will be used to carry either
a finger print or voice print. It will
be used to track almost every single
transaction made by every single
American, including buying guns,
using credit cards, buying gas, get-
ting on an airplane or a train."
"Oh, yes," I said, "I know what
you're going to say next. Your ilk
always says it. "So what. If that
keeps me safe, it's OK."
"Well," I continued, "consider
how those ID cards will be used.
Without one, you won't be able to
get on a plane or a train. You will be
denied all government services. You
will not be able to open a bank ac-
count. You will be literally shut out

"And all the time the federal gov-
ernment has been passing this law
mandating a national ID card it
vigorously denies it is doing it. It's
not mandatory, they tell us. It's all
voluntary. It's just without the ap-
proved card you can't use govern-
ment services. Why have they lied?"
Perhaps it's because Congress
knows full well that the American"
people are overwhelmingly opposed
to being boxed in like this."
"But still you say, if you haven't
done anything wrong, so what."

Diabetes Health In Jeopardy Despite Awareness
Despite recommendation for early
diagnosis and aggressive treatment
of type 2 diabetes, a first-of-its-kind
report reveals that Americans with
type 2 diabetes still struggle with
blood sugar control.
According to the "State of Diabe-
tes in America" Report, from 2003
to 2004, two out of three people
analyzed in a study of more than
157,000 patients failed to meet a
recommended blood sugar target.
This means they are not doing a
good job keeping their blood sugar
controlled an important part of
overall diabetes management.
The Report was issued by the
American Association of Clinical
Endocrinologists (AACE). These
diabetes treatment experts say, it is
critical that more be done to help
type 2 diabetics better manage their
"Type 2 diabetes is of urgent con-
cern and these findings must serve
as a wake-up call for America that
more needs to be done to help lower
blood sugar levels across the coun-
try and ultimately, manage this epi-
demic," said Bill Law, Jr., MD,
FACP, FACE, President of AACE.
More than 18 million Americans
are affected by diabetes. Type 2 dia-
betes, the most common form of
diabetes, accounts for 90 to 95 per-
cent of all diagnosed diabetes cases.
The Report revealed that 67 per-
cent of people analyzed in the study
did not reach the AACE-
recommended A1C test goal of 6.5
percent or less putting them at
greater risk for developing serious
diabetes-related complications, such
as stroke, heart attack, blindness,
kidney failure and loss of limbs.
The A1C test, typically taken in a
health care professional's office,
measures a person's average blood
sugar levels over the previous two to
three months. It complements the
daily blood sugar monitoring that
type 2 diabetics conduct on their
The study also showed that there
is significant room for improvement
in diabetes management as the ma-
jority of people studied in every
state, including the District of Co-
lumbia, were not in control of their
blood sugar levels.
In response to these findings,
AACE has launched "State of Dia-
betes in America: Striving for Better
Control," a public awareness cam-
paign designed to improve diabetes
management in the U.S. Join other

"oath" to better manage diabetes by

Artists Brad Cooley and Brad-

missioned by the city of Greenville
to create a life-sized statue of the
late singer Ray Charles.
The life-size clay rendering was
unveiled last week for members of

mittee that commissioned the work.
The 400-pound bronze statute,
known as the Ray Charles Memo-

Those attending last week's un-
veiling included Greenville Mayor
Elesta Pritchett, a childhood friend
of Charles; committee member and
historian Lucile -Day; Greenville
Town Manager Jim Parrish; and
Greenville Town Clerk Cindy
Cooley Jr. said the purpose of the
unveiling was to allow a view of
the finished work before it was sent
to the foundry for casting.
The Cooleys have been working
on the piece since March, first cre-
ating a miniature of Charles sitting
at the keyboard, then working out
any flaws, and finally beginning'
the life-size clay rendering in April.
Each bronze piece takes the
Cooleys about a year, from begin-
ning to end.
The Cooleys begin each life-size
piece by creating a shell of wire
mesh, then covering it with clay.
The clay is then. sculpted to the
appropriate form and covered with
a latex mold. Plaster is then poured
into the mold to create a mother
shell, which is sent to the foundry.
, The foundry pours wax into the
plaster shell and creates a wax
piece, which is then dipped into a
ceramic dip to create another mold.
The wax is then heated and burnt
out of the ceramic shell. ,
Now 'hot bronze is poured into
ithle ceramic ie1 anid allowed to''
cool. ire ceramIc shell is then
chipped away, leaving the finished
It takes about four weeks to
make the mold and ship it to the
foundry and it takes approximately
five months for the' foundry to
complete the casting process.
Cooley said that the original life-
size clay sculpture remains in the
studio for what could be several
months. Eventually, he said, the
clay is used to fashion other pieces.
He said the clay piece is not what
gives artistic satisfaction. Rather, it
is seeing the piece in bronze and
knowing that it is permanent, he

In the game last week, the Warri-

Roberts said. "If we play the way

his best shot," Saffo said. "I'm very

In their final game of the season
tonight (Thursday), the JV football
team is looking to do well and end
the season with a 4-2 record, rather
than a 3-3.
The Warriors have continued to
practice hard in an effort to further
improve their offensive and defen-
sive skills, as well as continually
rehashing the fundamentals of foot-
ball during practices.
When asked'to predict the possi-
ble outcome of the game on
Wednesday, Coach Ray Hughes re-
sponded, "It's hard to say. They're
expecting rain tomorrow."
"It's supposed to be an 80 per-
cent chance of rain, but I have my
rain suit ready," he added.
Hughes said that the teams play
in the rain, unless there is lightning,
In fact, they even play in sleet and
snow, he said.
"'We're always ready to play un-
less the weather conditions are dan-
gerous," he said,
"Florida High is our toughest
team," Hughes continued. "The
last time we played them, we lost
teams average 5-6 miles a day at
each practice, the kids have been
running much harder.
"We ran nine miles yesterday and
some of us ran seven and a half,"
he said Wednesday. "Our goal as.a
team is to run I50 miles per day, sd
some run farther than others."
Nennstiel said,that the teams main
focus presently was the Bob Cat
Classic, slated for Saturday, Oct.
15, in Gai nes. ille.

24-6. But then again, the first time
we played against Bell, they beat us
8-0. And then in the second game,
we won, 24-0. So hopefully, that
pattern will follow through."
JV Tigers' Final Game Canceled
The final game of the season for
the JV Tigers football team against
FSU, scheduled for tonight (Thurs-
day) has been canceled.
Head Coach Harry Jacobs attrib-
uted, the cancellation to 'a serious
lack of athlete participation.
"They weren't coming to practices
like they should," Jacobs said..
"They know if they don't come to
practices, they don't play or de-
serve to play."
Of their four season games, the
Tigers played only one. The first
game against Hamilton was can-
celed, resulting in the only win for
They subsequently fell to FSU
and canceled their final two games
of the season against Taylor and
FSU, resulting in two losses.
Tigers Varsity Football Team
Looks TO Score Win On Friday
Going into Friday night's game
with a 1-4 season, the varsity Tiger
football team .is looking for a win
against Bran ford.
"We have worked 'really hard all
week," said Head Football Coach
The Tigers have been working on
not making the mistakes they have
been making throughout the
season. These include failing to
read the 'offense and defense of
their opponents and poor blocking
"Their main focus has been work-
ing together as a team," Jacobs
said. "Hopefully, this will help us
win Friday night."
The game is scheduled to be held
