Father of 3 killed in crash
The woods of Taylor County
were Brian Lee Livingston's
second home, and he shared
that love with his wife and three
So a late night ride along the
sandy stretch of coast at Hickory
Mound was nothing unusual for
the family of five.
However, what began as an
outing with friends Saturday
ended with a single-vehicle
crash that claimed the life of
the 22-year-old and critically
injured his six-month-old son
Livingston's wife, Summer,
and two daughters, Abbigail
and Addison, sustained minor
injuries and were transported
to Doctors' Memorial Hospital
There, Summer and Abbigail
(who is three years old) were
treated and released.
Addison, who will be two in
September, was set to go home
The baby, Brant, was later
airlifted to Tallahassee.
The wreck happened around
1 a.m. Sunday, May 13, on Cow
Creek Road, 1.5 miles south of
Pipe Swartz Road.
Livingston was driving a
2000 Ford extended cab east
on the main dirt road leading
to Hickory Mound when
he lost control of the truck,
overcorrected and hit a tree on
the north shoulder of the road.
The truck rotated counter-
clockwise and came to a final
rest facing northeast.
Funeral services for Brian Lee Livingston will be held Thursday, May 17, at Pleasant
Grove Baptist Church, starting at 10 a.m. Visitation will be held tonight at Burns
Funeral Home from 6-8.
The Doctors' Memorial Hospital Foundation will host a Wine Tasting and Art Show
Friday, May 18, featuring works from both local and nationally recognized artists
along with wines from six different countries. A live auction will begin at 8 p.m.,
featuring "Three Amigos," a "Blue Dog" print (shown above) from artist George
Rodrigue valued at $5,000. For more information about the event, please see B-1.
Livingston, who was not
wearing a seatbelt, was ejected
from the vehicle. Friends, who
were with the couple, assisted
his wife and three children (who
were all wearing their seatbelts)
from the truck.
Units from Taylor County
Fire/Rescue, DMH Emergency
Medical Services and the Taylor
County Sheriff's Office all
responded to crash.
Livingston was pronounced
dead at the scene.
Danny Lundy, who will
join Ben Reams in officiating
funeral services for Livingston
Thursday, said he watched
the young father grow to
"He was a young man full of
energy who just loved being out
in the woods of Taylor County.
He loved his babies and his
family. He was just a good old

1 in 10 babies born here
is below healthy weight
Last week we celebrated
the dedication and strength of
mothers throughout Florida.
As we honor these amazing
women, we need to also
recognize one of the most
important challenges facing
new and expecting mothers--
access to health care--and the
people and programs working
to address these challenges.
In an average week in
Florida, 4,599 babies are
bom--633 are born preterm
and 399 are born with a low
birth weight (less than 5 lbs).
Locally, the low birth rates
are more pronounced; one in
10 babies in the counties of
Jefferson, Madison, and Taylor
is born below a healthy weight.
Babies born prematurely
often spend their first weeks
or even months in the neonatal
intensive care unit (NICU)
and face potential lifelong
challenges, such as learning
disabilities, chronic lung
disease and vision and hearing
problems. The average medical
costs for a preterm baby are
more than 10 times higher than
those of a healthy full-term
Prenatal care is one of the
most significant ways a woman
can lower her risk of giving birth
to a baby who is born preterm
or with a low birth weight.
Research shows women who
receive prenatal care services
beginning in their first trimester
have significantly better birth
outcomes, and this care is
critical for early identification
of potential medical issues and
other risk factors for infants.
Florida's Healthy Start
Coalitions have provided
counseling, education, risk-
reduction and case management
services since 1991, when
the state legislature saw the
need to promote healthy child
development and address
Florida's prematurity and infant
mortality rates. Since that
time, Healthy Start has served
millions of women and infants,
including 210,237 women
and infants last year. Services
provided by Healthy Start
include prenatal and infant risk
screening, care coordination,
mental health and substance
abuse counseling, childbirth and
parent education, breastfeeding
education and tobacco
cessation. The coalitions also
raise funds for additional
resources for pregnant women
This year Florida legislators
and Governor Scott restored
$3.2 million in lost funding
to the state's 32 Healthy Start
Coalitions, allowing us to
provide care to an additional
13,560 women and infants. We
applaud our elected officials'
commitment to ensuring more
women have access to the
services that will give their
babies the best chance at a
The Florida Legislature also
supported early access to health
care by safeguarding Healthy
Start's MomCare services
during the upcoming expansion
of Medicaid reform. MomCare
serves to counsel pregnant
women on their medical
.benefits and provider options,
assist with scheduling prenatal
care and obtaining health care
coverage for newborn infants
and linking them to other
services such as transportation
and community resources.
Last year 236,166 women and
infants were helped statewide
by MomCare, and thanks to our
legislators, Healthy Start will
continue to help thousands more
as those covered by Medicaid
are moved to managed care.
Since the creation of Healthy
Start, Florida's infant mortality
rate has decreased from 9.6
per 1,000 births in 1990 to 6.5
in 2010. We thank the Florida
legislature and Governor Scott
for recognizing the important
role that Florida's Healthy Start
Coalitions plays in the lives of
moms and their babies.
Helping a healthy mom
deliver a healthy baby is one of
the best Mother's Day gifts we
can give this year.

A couple of weekends ago, I had the
distinct pleasure of joining five of my
favorite friends from college for a long
weekend at Seagrove, where the water is
turquoise and the food is fabulous.
On average, I would guess that 12.6
billion words were spoken each day. I
can only take credit for one-sixth of
As much as we enjoy each other's
company, it was the words spoken to us
which created additional interest.
For the first evening meal, after we
put on our cutest capris and grabbed
our purses, we headed to a restaurant
of recommendation to enjoy fresh
seafood. We knew the general direction
but when the restaurant didn't
materialize in the location we had
envisioned, we decided happily, "We'll
just stop and ask for directions."
This doesn't bother any of us. We
know how to ask for directions. A
leathery, tanned man with a paint can
and a ladder on his shoulder, who
was walking purposely in a residential
section, was our victim.
"Hey...hi...hello," we said exuberantly,
the girls in the back seat waving.
"Could you help us with directions?"
the driver inquired.
We told him our destination and he
knew right where we wanted to go. He
looked at the driver, and the rest of
us--talking among ourselves and
fluttering our painted nails--and spoke
slowly, "You go down to the second stop
sign," he said pointing and trying to
make eye contact with each of us.
"Not the first," he said for emphasis,
"but the second. That's where you turn
"Not left, but right," he again
"Then you cross a lommnng bridge,
and when you get to the other side, the
restaurant will be on your left."
He scanned the front and back
seats again, as we smiled and nodded
in agreement while shifting purses,
answering cell phones and touching up
Without being prodded, he repeated,
"So that's the seconnnmnd stop
signnnnn--not the first.
"Turn right--not left," he re-stated,
gesturing with his right arm and then
"Cross over the bridge," he said again,
slowly, making a long, smooth gesture
which indicated smooth sailing, "and it's
on your left."
He paused and smiled into the vehicle.
"Y'all think you got it?"
"Got it," we said, and I think I might
"Thank you so much," we then said
exuberantly like cheerleaders from old,
some waved and nodded in appreciation,
blessing his heart and wishing him well.
When the windows rolled back up,
one friend was offended. "Do we look
mentally challenged?" she asked. "He
spoke so slowly and repeated himself so
"No," I said in his defense. "He's
just married. He's given directions

before. He's apprehensive."
We arrived at the restaurant and
greeted our waitress but had a difficult
time hearing the specials of the day
over the live music. Plus, there was a
rush to put on jackets because of the air
conditioning, and a text message or two
came through. We needed glasses to
read the menu, and then the waitress--
who probably didn't need to be reminded
of her mother--spoke to us,,as if we were
brand new kindergarten students',
"Hello," she said with a canned version
of sweetness, scanning the table. "How
are we all doing this evening?" she
asked, not waiting for "we" to answer as
she glanced back and forth at the front
door. We did murmur our assurance of
good health and then promptly stopped
murmuring so she could take charge.
"Before we jump into tonight's
specials, would you ladies like a few
moments to settle in and talk among
yourselves?" she asked, patting one on
the shoulder, and before anyone could
answer, she darted toward another table
where, perhaps, the tip would have more
to do with cleavage and less to do with
good food service. We could also feel
her rolling her eyes because even though
each of us is either an accountant, a
newspaper editor, a nutritionist, a high
school Spanish teacher, a consummate
housewife or a supervisor for a
state welfare program, we're also all
I made eye contact with the accountant
and realized the waitress was
prudent to look for greener pastures,
because--in the accountant's eyes--the
tip was automatically descending from
20 percent to 15.
For the most part, however, we
overlooked the waitress' awkward
attempts at kindness, coupled with her
impatience and inattention. We were
able to do that for we've done a lot of
overlooking in our 30something years
of marriage and 20something years of
When she returned, one of my friends
wanted to know about the house
dressing, another desired a definition
of broccolini and wanted to know how
spicy the gumbo might be. The waitress
said she wasn't sure about any of that,
but she'd check. She never did; another
employee delivered our food in her
stead. The waitress did, however, find
time to check her make-up and hair in
her reflection of the window separating
the kitchen from the customers.
In the end, she got a tip, but not the
one we wanted to leave, which would
have sounded something like, "Wear less
eye make-up and be sincere. If you have
difficulty with middle-age women, get a
job at a pizza parlor, or learn to respect
your elders while remembering that the
customer is always right."
You can speak slowly to us if you
want to, but you'd better be prepared to
listen quickly because what we lack in
navigational skills on the highway, we
make up for in our combined 120 years
of dealing with teenagers.
We've earned our place at the table.

Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window
In summer by the gate.
Although we mocked her tenderly
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem as safe
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all so full of us, she never could forget,
And so I think that where she is, she must be watching yet.
Waiting'til we come home to her i d d '
