FWC investigates dead alligators


Large number of dead alligators

found in Mallory Swamp


A large
number of
d, dead alliga-
tors found ini
the Mallory
Swamp area
in Lafayette
County has
the Florida
Fish and
Wildlife Con-
Capt. Roy Brown, servation
area supervisor for Commission
Lafayette County (FWC) con-
cerned.
SAccording to Capt. Roy Brown,
area supervisor for Lafayette
County, numerous alligators have
been found shot and floating along
the North and South Canal grades
and the L.A. Bennett grade which
.borders private lands and the Mal-
lory Swamp Wildlife Management
Area.
"We believe these are random
shootings. No parts are taken-after
the animals are killed," Brown
said. "This is a useless and waste-
ful crime that tarnishes the image
of ethical hunters."
In the past year, FWC officers
have arrested six subjects for
killing five alligators in the general
area. In those cases, however, the
suspects were apprehended with
,alligators or-parts-and thought to- .
be unrelated to this latest spree, ac-
cording to Brown.
"Unfortunately, there are some
dog hunters who may believe that

by killing alligators, the potential
threat to their hunting dogs is elim-
inated," Brown said.
However, according to Allan
Woodward, FWC biologist, alliga-
tors in north Florida eat very little


during the fall and winter months
and pose little threat to dogs.
"When water temperatures drop
below 60 degrees, the gators stop
feeding and become semi-dor-
mant. This usually occurs in early
December. They can come out and
bask ika the 'sun: during a warm-
front, but they don't eat during the
winter," Woodward explained.
Alligators are a protected species
and are listed as "Species of Special


Work continues on

museum building
On Friday, Jan. 5, some of the Mayo Correc-
tional Institution (MCI) Work Camp crew began
regrouting the outer and inner brick walls of the
Lafayette County Historical Museum building.
They were working together as a team trying to
get as much regrouting done that day as possible.
A painstaking process, this step involves care-
fully inserting new mortar inside cracks between
bricks. Then any excess must be removed without
damaging the mortar.

Slt -r ed, the next steps will be
installing the windows
and doors. See more pho-

"Gone With The Wind


To Heaven Or Hell"
"Gone, With The Wind To Heaven Or Hell" is the story
of people in a small town who become victims in a torna-
do. The story begins with scenes from different places in
that town and shows the lives of individuals on one
evening. When the tornado strikes this community, the
people in the previous scenes are victims of the storm and
have died. They are now confronted with the Book of Life
in Heaven or Satan's pull to Hell. Where will they spend
eternity?
You will laugh. You will cry. With special effects of the
tornado, you will feel that you are right there in the mid-
dle of that community. Written and directed by Meyers
Family Ministries of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, this drama
will touch every part of you. You will want to bring all
your family and friends to experience "Gone With The
Wind To Heaven Or Hell." A cast of over 30 people are in-
volved from Living Springs Family Worship Center, 26471
SR 247, in Branford. Admission is free for these four per-
formances. A love offering will be taken each night. Per-
formances are scheduled for Sunday through Wednesday
evenings, January 15 through 18, at 7 p.m. nightly. You
can call 935-1713 for more information.

Do you have an outfit that you would like to model? Do
you have a talent that you would like to perform? If so we

Vote In Honor Of


A Veteran
The Lafayette County Su-
pervisor of Elections, Lana
Morgan, is sponsoring the
Vote In Honor Of A Veteran
program.
The sacrifices our veterans
have made on behalf of this
great state and nation stand
as examples that emphasize
the need for us to take our
responsibility seriously, es-
pecially the right to vote.
According to Morgan, the
purpose of the program is to
"personalize the voting ex-
perience for everyone and
show our gratitude to those
who have given so much to
us all so that we may contin-
ue to live in freedom and ex-
ercise our right to vote."
A wall in the election of-
fice has been designated as
our "Vote In Honor of a Vet-
eran Wall" and each veter-
an's photograph that is sub-


program
mitted to the program will
be posted on the wall.
Veterans and family mem-
bers of veterans who wish to
participate, can call the
Lafayette County Supervi-
sor of Elections at (386) 294-

Your Pastor's Goal


Reverend Charm Greene

ministering at Lighthouse

Christian Center


"Now the end of the com-
mandment is charity out of
a pure heart, and of a good
conscience, and of faith un-
feigned" (I Timothy 1:5).
"The end" = the goal or the
desired result of the com-
mandment, or the authori-
tative instruction, is that
God's people would love
one another from pure
hearts, out of good con-
sciences and out of sinceri-
ty. The purpose of preach-
ing is to encourage love to-
ward God and one's neigh-
bor as God commands. Je-
sus summed up the law as
love!
Love is man's problem!
Adam's sin led to a guilty
conscience, hypocrisy and
doubt. Since that time it has
been impossible for natural
man to keep his heart pure,
his conscience good or his
faith un-hypocritical. All
men are born with a
warped, sinful nature that
puts any, such possibility
out of his natural grasp.
And yet love depends upon
these very qualities. Paul
conditioned love upon the
solution of these problems
(I Timothy 1:5). As J.E.
Adams says, in Competent
to Counsel, "God's authori-
tative instruction through
the ministry of his Word,
spoken publicly (from the
pulpit) or privately (in
counseling), is the Holy
Spirit's means of producing
love in the believer."
The purpose of preaching
is to promote man's love to
God and his fellowman.
Simply defined love is the
fulfillment of God's com-.
mands. The work of
preaching, when blessed by
the Holy Ghost, makes it
possible for men through
God's sanctifying Word to
become pure in heart, to
have peaceful consciences
and to trust God sincerely.


Thus, the goal of your pas-
tor's preaching is set forth
plainly in Scripture: to bring
men into loving
conformity to the law of
God.

Before you go shopping,
write out a shopping list. It
will save you time and
money. Add items to the
list as you run out of
things. Plan meals, check

ing places of recreation,
restaurants, the nearest gas
station, places to shop,
S parks, places to stay, and
anything else that might be
of benefit to you. Often-
times, a patron will happen
to overhear the conversa-
tion and assist in giving ad-
ditional ideas and/or help
with directions.
Access to the internet is
another resource provided
free by the Three Rivers
Regional Library System.
You can go to any of the
three libraries and use the
internet to search and print
any travel information you
find. For example, you can
check on current prices of
tickets, your flight itener-
ary, or find a location, get
directions, and print a de-
tailed map of your route. If
you are having difficulty in
your research, don't hesi-
tate to ask one of the Li-
brarians to help you.
Also, if you have a com-


puter and are subscribed to
an internet service
provider such as America
Online, Suwannee Valley
Internet Connections, or
Alltel, you can perform the
same research in the conve-
nience of your own home.
The following are exam-
ples of items that are regu-
larly updated:
1. Travel guides such as
Fodors and Mobil are re-
vised yearly. These are
available in paper format
as well as accessible on the
Internet.
2. RV (Recreational Vehi-
cle) travel guides and
campground directories
such as Woodall's Camp-
ing And RVing In The
Great Outdoors are updat-
ed yearly and can be found
on the Internet.
3. Travel brochures such
as the Florida's Travelers
Guide to Major Construc-
tion Projects published
every three months by the
Florida Department of
Transportation.


items to the list that you
need to buy. Read ads for
specials in the store where
you plan to shop. Only use
coupons if they are for
foods you really need. You
may be able to save more
money by using a cheaper
or store brand. Shop when
you aren't hungry. Hungry
shoppers tend to buy more
food and more high-priced
foods. If possible, shop
alone so you can follow
your list, compare prices
and read nutrition labels.
While you shop, compare
brands. Nutritional quality
is the same in all. You can
save by buying the lower


priced brand. Generic
brands usually cost less
than store brands and store
brands less than national
brands....but sales can
change this! Check unit
pricing. It tells you the cost
per ounce, or pound, or
quart, or piece, so you'll
know which brand or
which size is the best buy
for you.
Take advantage of unad-
vertised sales if you need
the items and you have
room to store these food
items at home. Shop for nu-
trition! Cost isn't every-
thing. You may have to pay
more for good nutrition.


For example: 100% real
juice is a better bargain nu-
tritionally than a juice
drink with only 10% juice.
Take time to compare fresh,
frozen or canned food to
see which is cheaper. Look
to see what's on special and
what's in season. Consider
the cost, time savings, nu-
trition and taste of conve-
nience foods before buying.
Put heavy foods on the bot-
tom of the cart and soft
foods on top. Buy cold
foods last.
When you get home, un-
pack groceries as soon as
you get home. Store cold
foods in the refrigerator or


freezer first so they don't
spoil. Cover and refrigerate
leftovers as soon as a meal
is over. If you keep left-
overs more than three days,
freeze them. Thaw frozen
leftovers in the refrigerator.
Heat leftovers thoroughly.
Remember, throwing away
food is like throwing away
money.

first victim to fall to the Hornets? .
The answer to the above questions is junior Kevin i' .

Kevin Whitney started the season in the goal until a nagging
shoulder injury put him on the sidelines. He appears ready to go
in 2006 however. Whitney said, "I like soccer because it is sim-
ply better and more challenging than other sports. I never really
played soccer before, so I started learning a lot by playinggoalie.
I dislocated my shoulder earlier in the season, so I won't be able

cer team in Mayo and I am proud to be a part of it. We can only
go up from here."


penalty kick in a hard fought 4-1 contest in Gainesville
against Oak Hall, and Jefferson County would be the first
victim, falling to the Hornets 8-0 in a shortened game
since the rules only allow an 8 goal margin. Scoring for
the Hornets in the victory was Cedillo with 4, Hector Ne-
grete with 2, while Alec Longley and Arturo Negrete
each added a goal.
The ladies have been pretty much doing the intramural
competition, but did venture to Perry, and although
falling to the Lady Bulldogs, did manage a goal by
Stephanie Hatsfield, while Tara Ainsworth would record
several saves for the Lady Hornets.
Although the first year of soccer, the Hornets are doing
very well at the craft. The ladies do not really have a lot
of experience on the field, and the boys only have five
players that have played any kind of organized soccer.
Both are way beyond their years and just enjoy the op-
portunity to finally have soccer come to Mayo.
According to starting goal keeper Kevin Whitney, sev-
eral players have been lobbying for years to get soccer to
come to Mayo, and thanks to the foresight of Athletic Di-
rector Taylor McGrew, the Hornets are now part of the
area soccer competition. The guys could notbe happier.
SThe team knows they need to get better and there will be
many ups and downs, but it will be worth it in the end as

Alec Longley is one of the many exciting players to watch on this
Hornets team. He is always on the move and creates many probe
lems for the opponents attackers by using his speed to create
problems.

David
Palomino
David Palomi-
no, originally from
Cali, Colombia,
South America is
the Director of So-
cial Services at
Advent Christian
S 'f :Village in Dowl-
Ing Park. He is
Coach David Palomino married to wife,
Cathy Palomino
and has two
daughters; Kaci (11) and Ana (6). Palomi-
no began playing soccer at 9 years of age.
He played in recreational and official
leagues.for 12 years with the Cali State
team, Americas United School teams,
Sand the All Stars Team of Cali. He played
professionally for the premier division of
Deportivo Cali and the Tallahassee Tem-
pest, a Brazilian Franchise under the um-
brella of Tampa Bay Mutiny and The
United : States. Independent. Soccer
League. Palomino has coached and rnen-
tored children 6 \ea.s of age and up for
several years in the basics, principles and
strategies of the game.
"I love the game! to me this sport em-
braces a three-fold purposes: 1) to have
fun learning and developing the skills, 2)
to develop endurance and keep in shape,
and 3) to develop the discipline of group
work. I believe that we have a very fertile
and nurturing environment to grow soc-
cer in our community. I am very grateful
to the athletic director Mr..Taylor Mc-
Grew for his leadership in introducing
soccer to the school and for believing in
and supporting the local talent. Yes, I say
talent 'because these young men have
passion and a big heart for the game, and
they invest themselves without reserva-
tion.
We had three weeks to get in shape toP
begin competing, and I was amazed day
after day' how hard they worked and


how committed they were to develop fhe
endurance to compete. I have no doubt
that these young- men are resolved to
keep this game in town. I am very proud
of them because of what they have. ac-
complished in such a short period of time
and because as the pioneers of the first
soccer team in our school, they have as-
sumed the challenge and the hardship to
build up standards for those who will
follow. When the opportunity to coach
came along. I felt that this was one way
to contribute to the development of the
game in our school and to the communi-
ty."
Other comments from the coach:
We have a very young group of play-
ers with good potential that we can help
to mature and develop. I imagine that
many others will come forth for next
year's season.
Together with Coaches Navarro and
Dekle, I feel that the team will be strong
in the near future. It is just a matter of
hard work and staying at it consistently.
Coach Navarro and Coach Dekle
have been an asset to the team as they
bring to the team their own unique expe-
riences and their knowledge of the game
.* We can tell the boys are having fun.
They all talk about playing bigger teams,
and they envision that in a few years we
can present greater challenges to our op-
ponents. They are looking forward to the
future. The boys are well mannered and
trainable, and, they pick up quickly on
drills without hesitating to apply them to
the game.
We have kept all the young men that
tried out because we need to develop
some type of reserve from which to get
players. They. play. together, learn from
each other, and develop cohesion. They
all travel together to the games, and they
all have the chance to play in the game.
"* We want to thank Tina and John Sin-
gletary for the support provided to the
team during this first season.


John Dekle
I got the opportunity to assist Coach
Palomino this year with the Boys Soccer
Program and'help and support him in any
way I could. "I'm very proud of you boys
and I wish I could help him more but I
'know he is, going to do great things for
you. It is just a privilege to be on the same
sidelines as you. Remember the one thing
I .tell you before every game. Take the bat-
tlefield with a 110% every time you play
and you know if you win or lose, you did
your best. Good luck guys and God Bless
you! You are some of the most respectful
students I've ever been around."
I started playing soccer at about 10 ears.
old and played all through school. I start-
ed on the Clay High School Varsity Team
in Green Cove Springs, from my Freshman
year arid was voted Captain my senior
year.
I went into the military and got stationed
in Germany where I played a recreational
park league. I learned a lot more there about
soccer because it is their national sport. I am
really glad to see the sport c6me to Lafayette
County through the Upward Soccer League
and now into the school system. I enjoy
coaching the girls and helping with the
boy's team.
I look at these girls and have tried to put
some good.work ethics into them and show


them that they can get out of this, whatever
they put into it. I, want them to know how
proud of them I am and yes, they grow on
you and I have found 20 new friends who
have a special place in my heart. They have
done what I have asked of them.
We lost a few girls when they found out
how much work it was to just get ready,
but not play yet. Soccer is a physically de-
manding sport and these girls rose to the
occasion and did what I really didn't think
they could accomplish in their first year.
It has been a privilege and an honor to be
the coach of these young women, and I
hope they take what I've taught them into
the future. I' know that this year was a
building year.and I hope that these young
ladies will stick with it and grow for next
year when they compete against other
schools.
I coached in the Upward Soccer League
the past two years and I see that soccer is
growing in Mayo, and it will help the,
school in years to come. I want to thank
Coach Taylor McGrew and the Lafayette
County School Board for choosing me to
coach, and I hope and pray that I can lead
this team into the future. I would also like
to thank my family Gena, Courtney, and
Hannah, for all their support. Girls, I love
you, and God Bless you. Thank you for be-
ing strong!

Meet the Coaches
Assistant boys coach and head coach for the ladies is John Dekle. He takes pride in teaching the
girls the necessary skills to compete on the soccer field. Neither team is lacking on desire to play
the game.

the Hornets have not
sought an easy schedule.
Instead, they are playing a
quality schedule that in-
cludes power Oak Hall,
Taylor County, St Francis
out of Gainesville and Jef-
ferson County, Suwannee
and Fort White.. Although
a tough schedule, the Hor-
nets have yet to have a
game not go the distance,
primarily due to a very
stingy Hornets defense.
This is a very young
team that features only one
senior, Jose Garcia. There
are seven juniors, three
sophomores, 4 freshman,
three eighth graders, one
seventh grader, and two
very competitive sixth
graders. The younger


guys-are quick to point out

is also quick to tell you that
words cannot describe his
appreciation to Coach Mc-
Grew for formally bringing
soccer on board and allow-
ing him to be a part of it.


The Basics of
the Game
By
David
Palomino


Using a round ball, a soccer
match is played by two teams
wearing different uniforms. The
ball Is no more than 450 g (16 oz)
In weight and not less than 410 g
(14 oz) at the start of the match.
Each team consists of not more
than eleven players, qne of whom
is the goalkeeper.
An official match may not start if
either team consists of fewer than
seven players.
Up to a maximum of three
substitutes may be used in any
match played in an official
competition organized under the
auspices of FIFA. the
confederations or the national
associations. For high school
games, the substitutions are
unlimited. In other competitions,
the rules must state how many
substitutions are allowed.
The duration of an official match
is 90 minutes played in two
halves each half lasting 45
minutes. For high school games,.
, the duration of each half is 40
minutes, and there will be a 10-
minute break between periods.
Understanding Soccer
The aim of the game is for one
team to score more goals than
the opposing team.
The winning team is the team that
has scored the most goals at the
end of the game.
Players score a goal when they
succeed in moving the whole ball
over the opposing team's goal
line, between the goalposts, and
under the crossbar.
Players may use any part of their
body except their arms and
hands. The ball is out of play


when it has totally crossed the
goal line or touch line whether
on the ground or in the air and
when play has been stopped by
the referee.
The game is controlled by one
Referee on the playing field and
two assistant referees placed on
opposite touchlines.
Official Dimensions of a Soccer
Playing Field
The field (or pitch) of play must be
rectangular.
The length of the touch line must
be greater than the length of the
goal line.

(100 yds) maximum 120
m (130 yds)
Width: minimum 45 m (50
yds) maximum 90 m (100
yds)

(110 yds) maximum 110
m (120 yds)
S~ Width: minimum 64 m (70
yds) maximum 75 m (80
yds)
The field of play is marked with
lines. These lines belong to the
areas of which they are
boundaries.
The two longer boundary lines
are called touch lines. The two
shorter lines are called goal lines.
The field of play is divided into
two halves by a halfway line.
The center mark is indicated at
the midpoint of the halfway line.
A circle with a radius of 9.15 m
(10 yds) is marked around It;
A goal area is defined at each
end of the field.

end of the field.

Safe drivers should save
money on car insurance,
but how do insurance com-
panies determine what a
"safer driver" is?
Allstate offers tips on dis-
counts for most motorists
to help stretch car insur-
ance dollars further. And
some of these discounts can
reward drivers for simply
keeping their hands at 10
and 2 on the steering wheel!
Safe Driving Pays Off
Most insurance compa-
nies base their premiums
and rates, in part, on dri-
ving records so a good dri-
ver would receive better
rates. A good driver is gen-
erally someone who has
been accident and incident
free for three years.
"Someone classified as a
good driver is going to re-
Sceive better premiums and
rates than someone who
has potential risk such as an
accident or speeding tick-
et," advised Valerie Grod-
man, Allstate Florida Re-
gion Field Product Manag-
er. "Certainly we are look-
ing to provide a competi-.
tive price to someone for
driving well."
Just one accident can
raise your premium ,That's
why it is important to be an
attentive dri eri at all trine'.
Driving faEst often means
not driving safe. Drivers
who accumulate moving
violations can see their
recklessness wreck their
wallet.
Allstate Insurance offers
a variety of safe driving.dis-
counts, including:


Premier Discount
You may be eligible for
this car insurance discount
if you have had no acci-
dents and no chargeable vi-
olations within the past
three years while maintain-
ing continuous car insur-
ance.
Premier Plus Discount
You may be eligible for
this car insurance discount
if you have had no acci-
dents and no chargeable vi-
olations within the past five
years while maintaining
continuous car insurance
for the past three years.
Defensive Driver Class
Discount
You may be eligible for
this discount if you are age
55 or older (age criteria can
vary by state) and have
completed an approved de-
fensive driving class.
Other ways to Trim Rates
There are some even sim-
pler ways to cut down on-
your auto insurance premi-
um. For instance, many in-
surance companies offer
lower rates to customers
with safer-or newer-cars.
"In some cases you can
get a reduction on your pre-
miums, depending on the
type of vehicle that you dLri-
ve," offered Grodman.
Here are some other com-
mon discounts to help keep
the price of car insurance
manageable:
Good Student Discount
\X may be eligible toi tlis
discount if you are a full-
time student who meets
certain grade requirements,
are under age 25 (ufider age
21 in some states) and are
unmarried.
55 and Retired Discount
You may be eligible for this
discount if you are 55 or


older and nQt emr-lo, ved
full time.
New Car Dicount
You may be eligible _-:t thil.
discount if you in-ure a
brand new (never preti-
ously titled) vehicle.
Economy Car Discount
You may be eligible tor thi-
discount if you own a -cer-
tain type of economy car.

ance companies offer good

Through Jan. 28
Driver's license and vehicle inspection

The Florida Highway Patrol will conduct driver's license
and vehicle inspection checkpoints through Jan. 28, 2006 on

47, SR 341, US 441, US 41, CR 245, CR 238, CR 135, Turn-
er Road, SR 100, Trotter's Road, Fairfield Farms Road, CR
250, CR 349, SR 247 and SR 25 in Columbia County; CR
132, CR 136, CR 136-A, CR 137, CR 249, CR 250, CR 252,

141, CR 150, CR 145 and US 41, SR 6, SR 25 in Hamilton

defective vehicle equipment, troopers will concentrate their
efforts on vehicles being operated with defects such as bad
brakes, worn tires and defective lighting equipment. In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to drivers who would violate
the driver license laws of Florida. The Patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective means of enforcing the equip-
ment and driver's license laws of Florida while ensuring the
protection of all motorists.

Despite its name, heart

failure can be fought
Though cancer is claiming more and more victims each year, heart disease remains the foremost
cause of death in Americans. According to the American Heart Association, 70.1 million Americans
suffer from some type of cardiovascular disease, with roughly 10 percent of those sufferers being
victims of a heart attack and nearly 5 million of those suffering from congestive 'heart failure.
Perhaps the most difficult obstacle to overcome with respect to heart failure is making people know
they have it. Despite the implied totality of its name, heart failure does not mean your heart just stops.
Rather, heart failure gradually develops and taxes your heart to the point where it needs to work
especially hard just to maintain normal function, such as pumping your blood. It is typically the result
of a heart attack or an extended period of high blood pressure.
There are distinctive characteristics that act. as indicators of heart failure. For instance, trouble
breathing when resting or lying down, and waking up breathless in the middle of the night can be
signs.
Another symptom not to take lightly is fatigue. Those who might be on the doorstep of heart failure
tire more easily than is normal for someone their age and might experience edema, a swelling of the
feet, ankles or legs. If you find yourself or a loved one to be tiring despite a lack of activity, consult a
,physician and ask for a cardiovascular examination.
Excessive coughing is also a telltale sign of heart failure. A hacking cough when lying in bed or a
cough that produces ample and continuous mucus is a sign that heart failure might be setting in. While
each of these symptoms might seem commonplace in the elderly, they all imply something worse than
just "getting old," and further attention is necessary if you or someone you love is exhibiting these
symptoms.
Though heart failure is typically not recognized until its more advanced stages, there are a number of
precautions one can take to limit one's risk of.heart failure.
One such precaution is exercising at a rate and frequency prescribed by your doctor. Consult with a
physician, as opposed to an athletic or personal trainer, and work with him or her to develop an
appropriate routine.
Another thing to do is watch your weight. Large fluctuations in bod\ i eight can be e\tremel taLing
on your heart, whether you're dropping pounds or gaining them. Maintaining a stead\ v.eight or it
you're trying to lose weight, dropping pounds graduallaly allow% s our heart to tackle a more predictable
workload.
L imiing ,.our intake of salt can.also go a long "ay in reducing your risk for heart failure. Sodium
has long been linked to high blood pressure, something that is a direct cause of heart failure.
It is wise to remember the prevalence of heart failure Though its name might impls fatality. there are
number of steps you can take to lower ,our risks of falling ictnm to heart failure. To learn more. visit
the Heart Failure Society ofAmerica \Web site at ,t i..abouthf.org.
