A MORE AGILE 21ST CENTURY MILITARY
Lessons front a
camellia Sbush H.
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Without even looking, I have found a
new role model for aging well. It won't
be featured in Cosmopolitan magazine
or on the Dr. Oz show.
It is a camellia bush.
I admired hundreds of camellia
bushes as we traveled over the river and
through the woods to grandmother's
house for a belated Christmas
celebration. These camellia bushes
were, laden with Professor Sargent,
White Emperor, Pink Perfection and
Aunt Jetty blooms. Spent blooms
circled the base of each bush, decorating
the earth without complaining.
These camellia bushes were full-
figured and perfectly adorned.
They didn't need a family to provide
for them, or to call their own. Many of
these camellia bushes were the only
survivors of long-standing Southern
families, where their blooms had
floated in water on sterling silver trays
and knew all the secrets of the women
who shared tea.
But you know the life cycle of many
such homes: the parents die, the
children (who love money more than
tradition) sell the house and move
away. The house stands idle until
the roof begins to sag and the gutters
no longer work. Passers-by look at
the house and shake their heads
because the power bills, alone, would
require a sturdy income. So, after
falling into deep disrepair, the house
is purchased or rented by another
family with less attachment to the land
and its history. Eventually, time and
wear rip the screens off the windows
and nobody cares to repair the front
door. An aluminum bowl holds dog
food by the entrance.
Yet, while all this emotional upheaval
is taking place, the camellia bush just
stands in the front yard and blooms as
if it were at The Biltmore Estate.
There's a good lesson here. I'm sure
Tornadoes continue to rip through
communities. Snow comes about once
a year. Drought visits more often.
And the camellia bush just blooms.
Careless trucks leave red clay ruts
near the bush, while vines try to
entangle it from above. Rain falls too
hard or not at all.
The camellia, however, just blooms.
Somebody leaves a frying pan on the
stove and goes to the back bedroom
to take a phone call. The house burns
down and the family which called it
home doesn't even return to get the
barbecue grill out back.
Even still, the camellia just blooms.
To keep it company, daffodils which
outlined the original homeplace,
soon emerge, like the cavalry. In
the company of camellias, they
look particularly elegant against an
otherwise charred setting around a
lone brick chimney. Azaleas herald the
spring months and bloom abundantly,
perhaps wishing they were at Callaway
Gardens, or perhaps not caring. Isn't
it a shame that plants which rank
lower on the intelligence scale, display
the contentment that rational human
beings rarely find.
Summer arrives and the cedars on this
lot grow twice the size of the original
roof which is now missing. Daylilies
join the party in June, followed by
spider lilies which always appear
when children go back to school in
the fall. Eleven pages of the calendar
will fall and then, without fanfare, the
camellia bushes bloom again. They will
bloom faithfully and abundantly.
This year and next.
Forever and ever.
For Women of a Certain Age, the
role models for aging are routinely
trotted before us with good lessons
about exercise, nutrition and
healthcare. What we don't hear are
lessons on contentment, responsibility
and blooming where you are planted.
Wherever you are planted.
I learned that from a camellia bush.

"We all knew that the future
did not lay with grain ethanol
but cellulosic )ethanol," Payne
said, adding that the challenge
was to find the correct enzyme
to make the process work.
"Here we are in Florida a
number of years later and we
have that person in Lonnie
Ingram to make that happen."
Much of the plant's
research will be based on,
the work of Lonnie Ingram,
UF distinguished professor
of microbiology and cell
science and director of the
Florida Center for Renewable
Ingram engineered an E. coli
bacterium that breaks down
inedible" plant material into
sugars that can be processed into
fuel-grade cellulosic ethanol.
Variations of the technology are
already at work in fuel plants in
Louisiana and Japan.
"Dr. Ingram, IFAS and the
university have dedicated
decades to this technology.
And thanks to Buckeye
Technologies, and the UF/
Buckeye partnership, we're
more optimistic than ever that
we can complete this joumey."
"This is the coming together
of some of the most innovative,
productive farmers in all the
world," Florida Commissioner
of Agriculture Adam Putnam
"And none of this equipment
works without growers out there
growing the feed crops. And all
of that is not worth anything
if we don't have an ability to
create a value-added product
that is desired by the consumer.
"Today is an awful lot like
being at the ground-breaking of
a lightbulb plant with Thomas
Edison," he added, pointing to
Ingram in the audience. "We
really do have the legend in this
field in the audience today who
made this enzyme possible."
Putnam also noted that the
feed crops, enzymes and facility
are based in Florida.
"That's homegrown jobs
that make all the difference in
the world in a community like
Perry, for us to keep our best
and brightest kids here and not

What are your memories from the old
store? How could it be re-purposed?
By DEBORAH SHEFFIELD
As 2012 ushers in a new year
for all, and a new store for
Shady Grove, it's caused me to
think more about the past years
in this community. What other
values from the years gone by
in Shady Grove should we hold
in the present and never forget
for the future?
I know that I learned
generosity from my
experiences on the farm of my
grandparents, 100 yards from
where I live now. I learned
about neighbors helping
within families...love of family
and appreciation for friends...I
learned that we take care of the
land, and, in return, the land
can take care of us. Finally, my
respect for older folks began as
a child here in Shady Grove
under the wing of A.G. and
Annie Mae Sheffield.
There are many of you who
have stories and memories-
upon-memories about the now
closed little Shady Grove store

daughter, Merci Rayne, on Dec. 20, 2011, at 10:06 a.m. in Shands

was 18.31 inches long.
Maternal grandparents are Mary and Ray Browning.
The baby's maternal great grandparents are J.W. (and wife

This is an idea I shared with
family regarding my great
grandparents' homestead that
stands near the heart of Shady
Grove. Perhaps the Shady
Grove Store could be restored

Resources. If the benefits are
there for Mr. Joe, perhaps the
building and site could be

secured for the restoration. It
certainly would be a benefit for
the community of Shady

led to our present and upon
which we will build the future.

about your favorite memories
of the Old Shady Grove Store.
