THIS year's Relay For Life raised the most money since the event started taking
place here six years ago. As of Saturday morning, the fundraiser had raised more
than $85,000, and organizers reported that money was still coming in. Organizers
called the contributions a tribute to the community's generosity. (News Photo)

Relay Fundraiser Best Ever


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Heat, humidity and the
threat of rain could not pre-
vent the County's sixth annual
Relay For Life from becom-
ing the biggest success to
date, raising more $85,000, as
of Saturday morning, exceed-
ing last year's total of
$78,391.
Relay Chair Juanice Hagan
said there were funds still
coming in as of Monday
morning, so the exact amount
could not be determined.


"Per capital, that averages
out to $6.27 per person in the
county," said Hagan. "That is
phenomenal and a great trib-
ute to the community."
Despite the threat of inclem-
ent weather, approximately
700 people attended the
event, approximately the
same amount as last year.
Ceremonies began with Bill
Bassett welcoming everyone,
the JROTC Color Guard post-
ing the colors the introduction
of dignitaries, survivors, Mike
McCall of Channel 6 and
-Honorary Relay Chairman
Doug Wainright.


Amount Averages

$6.27 Per Individual


As McCall addressed the
group, he said this was his
fifth year attending the Relay
and he planned to continue.
"Of the Relays For Life I
have covered, I really enjoy it
in Jefferson County. It is the
friendliest Relay I've been to."
Many survivors took the
track in their traditional yel-
low survivor T-shirts, proudly
displaying the official banner
before them. As survivors


walked the track, continual
applause came from all of
sides.
This year, there were a total
of 33 teams, exceeding the 28
teams last year each offering
sweets, sausages, hotdogs,
drinks, collectibles, toys,
games, and the like.
Hagan reported that of those
33 teams, 16 have already
committed for the 2007 event.
"I think the reason behind


the funds being up this year is
the losses .of Dr. Jordan and
Haley Grantham recently to
cancer," said Hagan. "Cancer
touches so many people."
The event had 15 bronze
sponsors, each raising a mini-
mum of $1,500 and a county
first, two gold sponsors; The
Friends of Doug Wainright,
which raised more than
$5,000 and Progress Energy,
also raising more than $5,000.
Hagan said that funds came
from all quarters of the com-
munity.
The top four fundraisers in-
cluded Elizabeth Baptist, with


$3,807, FMB with $2,951,
Wacissa UMC, $4,322, and
UMC churches numbering
five teams, with a total of
over $10,000.
Additional donors included
school age children from
ACA and the public school,
raising more than $3,000, C
& F Fencing, more than
$2,900, Riley Palmer Con-
struction, more than $2,900
and the Presbyterian Church,
more $2,400.
"All of our teams did just a
phenomenal job," said Hagan.
"Each exceeded their goals,

Developers To


Get Reimbursed


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

City and county officials
keep breaking what to them is
new ground relative to devel-
opers and developments, an-
other sign of the accelerating
growth here.
The latest two issues to con-
front officials are reimburse-
ments to developers and* the
permitting of model homes.
County officials began
wrestling with the issue of re-
imbursements in relation to the
Mill Creek Ridge subdivision
in the Lloyd area.
It happened because devel-
oper Charlie Ward chose to
modify parts of the original de-
sign by reconfiguring the lots
to make the development more
attractive.
Ward argued that the
changes he made were minor
and resulted in a lowering of
the subdivision's density. Why
then should he have to pay an-
other $7,350 for a second re-
view, when the county had al-
ready approved the project and
the second review entailed a
fraction of the time required
for the original?
County officials conceded it
was problem likely to keep re-


curring, given that the county
must approve developments
before state agencies will re-
view them.
In many cases, they ac-
knowledged, the state agen-
cies' reviews trigger modifica-
tions to the subdivision's plat
because of wetlands and other
environmental concerns,
thereby forcing a subsequent
review by the county.
Commissioners determined
that it wasn't fair to charge a
developer the full amount for a
second review, especially if
the changes were state man-
dated, minor in effect, and ulti-
mately resulted in a lowering
of the density.
They refunded Ward $5,495,
based on the actual hours that
Planning Official Bob Arre-
dondo calculated the county's
staff spent on the second re-
view.
Arredondo explained that
the county's consultant engi-
neer normally charges a flat
fee of $1,000 -- plus $52 per
lot -- for his review of subdivi-
sions. In this instance, how-
ever, the engineer had charged
only $1,200 because it was a
second review, he said.
Adding his own and the
Planning Commission's time

Writing Scores


Getting Better


CITY OFFICIALS have decided they will reimburse de-
velopments, based on a number of factors. Among
these are whether the project is in the city and whether
it's identified on the capital improvement plan. (News

Man Sentenced For

Child Pornography


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


A county man charged with
72 counts of child pornogra-
phy has plead and been sen-
tenced.
William Lee Rudd plead no
contest to 52 of the charges on
March 13 and was sentenced
to three years of sex offender
probation on April 10.
The court withheld adjudica-
tion, meaning that the charges
won't appear on Rudd's perma-
nent record.


Rudd will serve his proba-
tion in Alabama, where his
family resides.
According to the investiga-
tive report, the National Center
for Missing and Exploited
Children (NCMEC) in Alexan-
dria, VA, received a Cyberr
tip" from America Online
(AOL) in late 2004 regarding
the transmission of child por-
nography.
According to the AOL infor-
mation, one of its subscribers,
screen named "leerudd2004",
attempted to transmit a child

Writing scores have in-
creased over those in 2005, in
each of the three grades taking
the test in District Schools.
Superintendent Phil Barker
said Friday: "I am very proud
of the efforts of our Director of
School Improvement Sherry
Heyen, and the school princi-
pals to help make this happen."
In grade four, 72 students
were tested and rose from
a score of 2.9 in 2005, to 3.4.
In grade eight, 67 students
were tested, and rose to 3.6,
from 3.4 in 2005.
In grade ten, 83 students
were tested and scored 3.6, up
from 3.5 in 2005.
The "passing" grade, set by
the State is 3.5, scheduled to
increase to 4.0 next year,
Barker explained.
"The significant improve-
ment in our scores indicates
that our School Improvement
Plans are working," he said.
"We have received much
support from the School
Board, by way of salary in-
creases and personnel assign-
ments.
"We expect to continue to


improve our scores each year,"
Barker said.
Examples of what students
may be asked to write on the
test include:

Scores Of
Students
in Grades
4, 8 & 10

In 2006

In grade four, choose an activ-
ity they enjoy, and to explain
why they enjoy it.
In grade eight, choose a time
of year and explain the choice.
In grade ten, choose a per-
sonal quality considered to be
important and explain the
choice.
The writing scores are used
along with FCAT reading and
math scores to calculate the
school grades.
Individual's writing score
does not affect that student's
promotion, or graduation.
Scores in FCAT Math and
English are expected some
time next month.
School grades are generally
made available in June.

Developers

To Receive

Refunds
(Continued From Page 1)
reviewing the plat a second
time, Arredondo figured it
amounted to $1,855.
"If you subtract the actual
cost, the potential refund is
$5,495," he said.
He cautioned, however,, that
in a similar situation involving
the Turner Heritage Homes
subdivision, the county had
charged the full amount for a
second review.
"We don't want to get into a
situation where every fee has
to be refunded," Arredondo
said. "So we need to proceed (
cautiously." t
The board instructed him to
calculate the actual cost in-
curred in the second review of
the Turner Heritage Homes
subdivision, to determine if a
refund was also warranted
there.
At the same time, commis-
sioners referred the matter to-
the Planning Commission,
with instructions that the plan-
ners world out rules to govern
second reviews.
The language the Planning
Commission is drafting will al- -
low second reviews to be con-
ducted administratively and at
a reduced cost, provided the
changes are minor and result in
a lowering of the project's den-
sity.
City officials also are wres-
tling with the issue of reim-
bursements to developers.
The water and sewer com-
mittees last week discussed
granting reimbursements to de-
velopers, depending on the
benefits the city will reap from
the project.
In the case of the Crooked
Creek subdivision, for exam-
ple,. the developer has agreed
to front tle cost for extending
the-cin's \ water and sewer serv- -
ices to his subdivision.
Since the extension will-
benefit existing areas of the
city and the improvements
were identified in the city's
capital improvement plan, city
officials believe reimburse-
ments are warranted in this
situation.
What's more, the new subdi-
visions is part of the city and
will produce taxes and other
revenues over the long run.

In the case of the Wolf Creek
subdivision, on the other hand,
the developer is extending the
water line to his development
two miles outside of town. But
the extension is not identified
in the city's capital improve-
ment plan, the sewer system is
not part of the deal, and the
subdivision won't be part of
the city.
In this case, officials rea-
soned, the minimal benefit to;
the city warrants a minimum
reimbursement, if any.
City officials determined that
the decision to reimburse will
rest on a number of factors, in-
cluding whether the improve-
ments are identified on the
city's capital improvement plan
and whether the property will
be annexed into the city.
Councilman Brian Hayes
suggested that the reimburse-
ment ordinance be kept brief
and flexible. That way, he
said, the city doesn't lock itself
into any one position, but is
open to negotiate with devel-
opers on particular projects.
"Once again, we're dealing in


uncharted water," Hayes re-,
marked.
City Attorney Bruce Lein-
back is to draft a reimburse-
ment ordinance for the
council's review on May 2.
Meanwhile, the city's build.
ing committee will be recom-
mending that the council adopt
an ordinance allowing con-
struction of model homes.
Modeled after a Tallahassee
ordinance, the proposal will al-
low developers to construct up
to three residential units for
marketing purposes before the
final plat is recorded.
Per the terms of the proposed
ordinance, the developer has to
meet certain conditions before
the model homes can be con-
structed.
Among the conditions, the
preliminary plat for the subdi-
vision has to have been ap-
proved; the model homes can
not be inhabited; and no per-
manent utility connections can
be made until after the final
plat is recorded.
The council will take up this
matter also on May 2.

AOL intercepted the image,
which depicted a nude female
child sexually involved with a
mature male. The image re-
portedly came from a known
series of child pornography
images printed in a Danish
magazine in the mid 1970s.
An FDLE (Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement) in-
vestigation ultimately led
authorities to Rudd. Authori-
ties then obtained a warrant
and searched Rudd's residence,
seizing a computer and media
equipment on Jan 12, 2005.
States the investigative re-
port: "A forensic archive of the
evidence was created and ana-
lyzed for active and previously
deleted files of possible inves-
tigative interest. Images that
appeared to contain child vic-
tims were selected and 71 im-
age files and one 41-second
video file were submitted to
the NCMEC) for review.
"Of the files submitted, 23 of
the images contained child vic-
tims who had been identified
by law enforcement. The iden-
tify of the remaining victims is
unknown at this time."

Opinion & Comment



You Gotta Love Repairmen


I like the down home expres-
sion "he does what he can,"
because it is a nice way of say-
ing, "he can't do much."
If I were to describe my me-
chanical aptitude, I would say,
"I do what I can" translation I
can't do much.
I have friends who can fix
anything and build anything.
Whatever I fix (?) doesn't stay
fixed.very long and my build-
ing is limited to a woodshed I
built several years ago.
My neighbor came over to
inspect it after I completed the
woodshed and said, "you have
enough nails in that thing."
I guess that meant I did OK.
I dunno.
The woodshed fell down af-
ter a few years. Maybe I didn't
use enough nails. But, the
thing looked pretty good to me
while it lasted.
Truth is I had a good time
building the woodshed.
I've decided I'm gonna build
something again when I retire
and have more time. In fair-
ness to my neighbors and their
property values, I plan to build
this thing, probably a cabin, in
the woods somewhere.


Publisher's

Notebook


4"* y~ai


-Ron Cicfion


My wife is scoping out suit-
able places where I won't
screw up anybody's neighbor-
hood. You can see both of us
have great confidence in my
building skills. '
I have no idea what I'd do
with the cabin vhen I'finished
building it. You see, I really
don't want the cabin, I want
the pleasure of building it.
My retired friends tell me
one should scratch whatever
itch one has early on in retire-
ment. They never say why but
I assume it means one can't or
doesn't want to do certain
things after a fashion. So I plan
to get right on the cabin pro-
ject as soon as I retire.


In the meantime, I will con-
tinue calling repairman when
something breaks.
And they will continue not
showing up when they say
they will.
Sometimes they don't come
for several days. If you call
again and remind them they
are a day late already,. some-
body snaps at you and tells
you how busy they are.
I know the drill. Since I can't
fix anything, I've, been calling
repair people for a long time.
I have learned that Monday
morning can mean anytime
Monday and with a little luck
maybe Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday is a possibility too.


I've also learned something
about estimates. Repairman
say it will cost "about $100" to
fix what's broken.
Well now, he doesn't really
mean "about $100," he means
,$100 to $200 and the final fig-
ure will be crowding $200.
I've also learned that if the
thing doesn't work right after
you've paid the repairman and
he's gone on to other things,
you spend a couple of days
- trying to get him back.
When he gets back to you he
says something like, "Well, we
got the left gizmo fixed, but
the right one is giving you
trouble."
Y 'ou stand there and ,wonder
why he didn't figure that out
the first time but since you
can't fix it yourself, you don't
say that. After all, you need
this guy.
When he gets through fixing
the right gizmo, you pay an-
other couple of hundred dol-
lars so the job that was going
to cost "about $100 is now
"about $400."
You bid him goodbye and,
here's the best part, you thank
him for coming!


we're Dodging Responsibility


BY DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

It never ceases to amaze me-
how people can so easily
blame human shortcomings
and societies ills on inanimate
objects.
Rather than blaming the
drunk driver who killed the in-
-nocent people in the other car,
it was the alcohol.
Instead of holding the en-
raged idiot responsible for--
shooting and killing his best
friend why not blame the evil
gun?
Instead of attributing a poor
.choice of health habits for
causing the cancer, let's blame
the cigarettes. Rather than ad-
mitting it was the out of con-
trol eating habits that resulted
in the heart attacks, we want to
blame the fats.


Refusing to acknowledge the
reality of human failures and
,errant behavior and blaming
adverse situations on inani-
-mate objects isn't anything
new. In the twenties, there was
a national movement to ban al-
cohol sales, called Prohibition.
Society easily overlooked
the necessity to address the hu-
man weakness associated with
drinking alcohol and stupidly
believed that removing it from
the public square would solve
all problems.
Prohibition was an abysmal
failure and only fostered the
rise of organized crime.
Then there are all those peo-
ple dying from the effects of
the lengthy use of tabacco. So-
ciety has amazingly bought
into the nonsense that it wasn't
years of self serving personal
bad habits that caused the ill-
-ness, but the evil tabacco com-


panies that made the cigarettes.
As ridiculous as that sounds,
juries continue to adjudicate
multimillion dollar verdicts
against the tabacco suppliers
and simply overlook the long
term personal irresponsibility
exercised by the "victim".
There has always been an
anti-gun section of our society.
They mistakenly feel that ban-
ning all forms of firearms is
the solution to solving violent
crimes and killings.
Just like the off track Prohibi-
tionists of the 1920's, these
folks are blaming an inanimate
object for all of the problems
and failing to recognize the
real issue of the person behind
the weapon.
Lately, there has been a na-
tional movement to launch
lawsuits against gun manufac-
tures for making and selling
guns that kill people.


This isn't only irrational
thinking, but an irresponsible
knee jerk reaction to a very se-
rious problem.
If that weren't bad enough,
we now have the "food police"
running around the country
threatening to file lawsuits
against the likes of McDon-
ald's, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell
for making people fat!
What this all amounts to is a
social cancer that has taken
hold and progessively destroys
peoples ability to exercise ra-
tional thought.
Starting some where (I be-
lieve in the 1960's), Ameri-
cans began to buy into the con-
cept that personal responsibil-
ity and the associated conse-
quences of bad behavior could
be blamed on something or
someone else.
The young man who robbed

Geriatrics Expanding Field


BY DAVID REUBEN
M.D.

I often get letters, like the
two below, from Baby Boom-
ers who are caring for aging
parents and trying to find
health care that meets the
unique needs of older pepole.
Finding the right kind of care
can seem daunting, but a little
information and some key re-
sources can help
tremendously.


Q: My 81-year-old mother
recently fell and was rushed to
the emergency room. The doc-
tor who saw her suggested that
she start seeing a geriatrician.
What is a geriatrician and why
should she see one?
A: A geriatrician is a physi-
cian with special training and
expertise in caring for older
adults, especially those with
complex health problems.
Like children, older adults
have unique health care needs.
_As we age, our bodies change


in many ways that affect .our,
health.
Among other things, we're
more likely to develop chronic
health problems such as heart
disease, diabetes and arthritis,
and to need multiple medica-
tions (all with potential side ef-
fects).
About 80 percent of adults
65 or older have at least one
chronic health condition and
50 percent have at least two.
As we grow older it's also
harder for us to recover from


illnesses.
Q: I've tried to find a geri-
atrician for my parents but
haven't had any luck. Why
aren't there more geriatricians?
What should I do?
A: Today, there are fewer
than 7,000 practicing geriatri-
cians in the U.S.
That's about one geriatrician
for every 5,000 adults over age
65. Finding a geriatrician is
likely to become even more
difficult over the next 20

Writers Clarify Rezoning

Amendments Postponement


Dear Editor:
We would like to clarify
the postponement of the
Comp Plan Amendments
for re-zonings that was to be
held at the County Commis-
sion meeting last Thursday,
April 20-,
One application is by
Andris/Joiner on US 19
South and the other in the
Waukeenah area by
Walker/Lifestyles.
After looking through the
file at the Planning Depart-
ment and doing some re-
search, we found in the
Land Development Code
that improper notice was
given for the public hearing.
We addressed the issue to
the County Commission at
the public hearing. The
Commission voted to post-
pone the public hearing to
May 18th allowing the mat-
ter to be re-noticed on both
amendment re-zonings.
We would like to thank
the County Commissioners
for their prompt attention in
this matter.
Our statement to the Com--
mission and to the public in
attendance addressed the
fact that the applicant did
not fulfill their obligation to
the surrounding property
owners on both re-zoning
amendments.
The Land Development
Code states that 15 to 30
days prior to the public
hearing, notices will be
mailed by the applicant to
surrounding property own-


ers by certified mail.
The applicant has to pro-
vide proof of mailing by
postmarked receipts to the
Planning Department no
later than 15 days prior to
the meeting. In this case, the
applicant did not mail the no-
tices by the required date.

The responsibility falls
upon the applicant, not the
Planning Department. Bob
Arredondo, the Planning
Official, did not do anything
wrong to cause this delay.
It is not up to the Planning
Department to take the ap-
plicant by the hand and
walk them through all the
necessary requirements.
The Planning Department
provides answers to ques-
tions, but should not be ex-
pected to do the work for
the applicant.
This holds especially true,
when the applicants both
have an experienced project
manager in Alan Saucier.
He has been involved in
many other developments
within the City and County.
This is not his first time in
mailing notices.
Upon leaving the meeting,
a huddle took place down-
stairs in the Courthouse.
Wish we'd had a camera,
because it was a pretty pic-
ture. The group included
Wendy Moss who is a
member of our Planning
Commission, Scott Shirley
who is our Planning Attor-
ney, Alan Saucier, Project


Manager for-both develop-
ments, and the developer.
It became quite clear why
Ms. Moss during the meet-
ing and Mr. Shirley after the.
meeting made negative:
comments towards us.
Too bad they aren't as con-
cerned for the County and
the taxpayers as they are for.
helping the applicant.
We've noticed this is their
behavior in other meetings
also.
Citizens, you need to be
aware of what is going on in
this County. This is our
community and it is grow-
ing by leaps and bounds.
Get involved and have a
voice in issues. Remember
one very important thing,
this County belongs to each
and every one of us.
Sincerely,
Don & Cindy Lee
Taxpayers and members of
Jefferson County Citizens
for a Sustainable Future

and ran from the police,
wouldn't have done any of th-t
if it weren't for the tobacco, al-
cohol, the gun manufacturer
and let's not forget his poor
childhood environment.
People (including kids)
know right from wrong. The
lack of consistent and stringent
punishment or realistic and
workable intervention for
wrong behavior, only offers
the opportunity for people on
the margin of adverse antiso-
cial behavior to step over the
edge.
We need to stop the non-
sense and start blaming the in-
dividual for unacceptable
behavior and leave the inani-
Smate objects out of the equa-
tion.

Until recently, the federal
government's "Title VII" geri-
atric health professions pro-
gram did just that, by support-
ing geriatric education centers
and young medical school fac-
ulty who trained medical stu-
dents, primary care physicians,
nurses, pharmacists and other
providers to better meet the
health care needs of older
adults.

Unfortunately, Congress
eliminated all funding for this
program in late 2005. We need
to restore this funding for the
sake of all older Americans.

NORMA PURKEY was surprised on her 70th birthday when she received multiple
bouquets of roses delivered throughout the day. At day's end, Purkey had 70 roses,
one for each year of her life.



Local Woman Celebrates 70th


Birthday With As Many Roses


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

City resident Norma Pur-
key, enjoyed an unusual expe-
rience Wednesday.
In recognition of her 70th
birthday, she received deliver-
ies of 10 roses.
"The day went great," said
Purkey. "I was hanging from
the first delivery to the last to
find out who they were from,
and still didn't know when it
was all over with."
With each delivery, Purkey
received a fragment of a mes-
sage.
"Happy Birthday from your
secret admirer" was spelled
out with one word on each
bouquet of 10 roses.
Gelling's Florist Owner Er-
icka Imbrunone said the roses
were from all of her children.
However, Purkey suspected
that they were from her eldest
son, Leslie Riley.
"I remember once when I
was in the hospital and my
husband was still alive, my
son sent me some roses and
signed them, "From your se-
cret admirer", said Purkey.
"Everyone thought it was
funny, and they wanted to see
what my husband had to say


about it when he saw the doc-
tor that day, thinking that he
sent them to me."
She added, "I don't know if
good children tend to give
roses, or if giving roses makes
children good."
When Purkey received the
first bouquet, she thought it
was nothing out of the ordi-
nary.
When the second came, she
said she couldn't believe she
was receiving more roses, and
by the third, she began to sus-
pect her son.
After the fourth bouquet
was delivered, Purkey said
she knew that there had to be
one more, exposing the

sender. "I can't be left hang-
ing now," she laughed. "I'm
having a great time."
Purkey added that with
every bouquet, she began to
feel a little bit younger, but by
the end of the day, waiting to
see the sender exposed, she
said she felt, "All of 70."
"I've never seen so many
roses in all of my days.
They're beautiful," said Pur-
key. "I like roses, they're my
favorite flower, and I've al-
ways told people to give me
roses while I'm living, don't
wait until I'm dead.
"Now I can never say I
never got enough roses while
I was alive," she concluded.

ACA Girls Lose 2 Games,


Stand 11-6 On The Season


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The Aucilla Christian Acad-
emy JV softball team last the
final two games of the season,
to stand 11-6 on the season.
The Lady Warriors fell 10-8
to Florida High.
Coach Frank Brown said
both teams were evenly
matched and played a good,
strong game. However, at the
end of the mandatory time
limit, ACA was down by two
runs and lost.


"Regrettably, our catcher
and starting pitcher had to
come out of the game, due to
a broken thumb and an in-
jured leg, respectively," said
Brown.
Taryn Copeland pitched the
first four innings, striking out
three and giving up 11 walks
and two hit-by-pitch. She was
pulled after four innings due
to injury.
Erin Kelly pitched the final
inning, striking out three and
giving up one walk.
At the plate, Olivia
Sorensen, three singles, two


runs; Skyler Hanna, one put-
out; Lisa Kisamore, one-strike
out, one put-out; Katelyn
Levine, one single, one run,
two put-out; and Kelly, one
single, three runs, one walk,
and one hit-by-pitch.
Miranda. Wider, one single,
one run, two put-out; Mi-
chaela Roccanti, one single,
one double, one put out;
Copeland, one walk, one put-
out; Keli Dollar, one put-out;
and Nikki Kisamore, one sin-
gle, one put-out.
In the final game of the sea-
son against Maclay, the Lady
Warriors were defeated
19-16.
"Close, but no brass ring,"
said Brown. "The girls
played a great game and they
played hard, but in the end,
we came up short.
"Our catcher, Skylar Hanna
was out with a broken thumb,
and our starting pitcher,
Taryn Copeland was not able
to pitch until the last inning,
due to a previous leg injury,"
said Brown. "The loss'of
these, two key players made it
tough to play at our best, even
with the heroic efforts of the
team."
Backup pitcher Kelly,
pitched six innings, striking
out three, one hit-by-pitch,
and 21 walks.
Copeland pitched the final
inning, striking out five, one
hit-by-pitch, and giving up
seven walks.
At the plate, Olivia
Sorensen, two singles, two
home runs, five RBI, and two
runs.
Savannah Williams, two
singles, one RBI, one strike-
out; Levine, four singles, one
triple, two RBI, four runs; and
Kelly, one single, two
doubles, one triple, and five
RBI.
Wider, four singles, one
RBI, two runs.
Roccanti, two singles, one
RBI, one run; Copeland, one
walk, one run; Nikki
Kisamore, one single, one
RBI, one run, one walk; and
Sunnie Sorensen, two singles,
two runs, one strikeout.

Healthy Weight Loss available
only at Jackson's Drugs,
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
flavoring 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.
