Croft's Thriftway celebrates D0 year. FN o11-70


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

William G. Croft, Jr., a
native of Lafayette County,
started Croft's Thriftway
on Feb. 20, 1946. He owned
and managed his business
until retiring completely 50
years later. Croft then gave
complete control of the
grocery store over to his
children.
Croft was born on May
23, 1925, in Mayo to
William G. Croft, Sr. and
Eula Dekle Croft. Accord-
ing to Croft, his father was
a barber in Mayo.
As a child, Croft did odd
jobs in his father's barber-
shop. Croft said this was
done for a number of
years. "I began shining
shoes in dad's barbershop
at the age of four and
sweeping and cleaning
up early
each
week-
day
morn- l ,.
ing and ar
starting V
a fire in
the old ,, '
wood
stove"in' "
the rear ot
the building
which heated the water for
the barbershop," Croft
said.
When he was six and
one-half years old, Croft
received his first opportu-
nity at working in a gro-
cery store. Croft recalled
that Edgar and Biddie
Williams were the owners
of the store which was
called the Suwannee Gro-
cery Store. According to
Croft, they left the Suwan-


nee Grocery Store a few
years later, opened their
own grocery business, and
called it Williams Grocery.
Croft recalled that he still
worked for them in
Williams Grocery. "I con-
tinued to work for them
before school, after school,
and full time in the sum-
mer until I graduated from
Lafayette High School,"
Croft said.
After graduating LHS,
Croft served in the United
States Navy from May
1943 to December 1945.
According to Croft, he was
stationed on the U.S.S.. So-
lar Destroyer Escort 221
during that time.
A few months later in
Feb. 1946, Croft pursued
his desire to own and man-
age his own grocery store.
"With the help
and .


backing
of Mr. and m lrs. E.B.
Williams, I bought a gro-
cery store on main street
from Mr. D. P. Morgan, Jr.
That was the beginning of
Croft's Grocery. The first
day of business was Feb.
20, 1946," Croft said.
According to Croft, he
has encountered various
difficulties along the way.
For example, it was hard at
times to get the groceries
he needed. He said, "every
person lived by purchasing
the things they needed on


credit. In addition, busi-
nesses lived on credit to
L survl\e.' Despite the
different types ot ad-
versities he ha, faced.
Croft overcame all of
them w ith patience,
per.'erverance, faith,
his family, and community.
Croft expanded the .
square footage of his build-
ing in 1959 by borrowing
money from the Small
Business Association. This
allowed his grocery store
to grow and better serve
his customers.
Later, Croft became a
member of the Certified
Grocers of Florida, located
in Ocala. He participated in
their Thriftway program.
One of the requirements
for joining was the owners
had to agree to go to cash
sales only. Croft agreed to


W. G. Croft Jr., and his wife Judy.


the terms of the program. "I
realized that if I did not do
this, that within a year or
less, I would be out of busi-
ness for lack of caslhto con-
tinue.operating," Croft said.
In the 1970s and 1980s,
Croft remodleed the store.
For example, he added a
storage room, and moved
the meat cutting depart-
ment into this new room.
According to Croft, these
changes brought in more
revenue.
Croft recalled some of the

How protected

are you from

scams?

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

Scams. are everywhere
around us.
Some scams are easy to
recognize while others are
very deceptive. Some-'
times they can imperson-
ate legitimate businesses
such as credit card and in-
surance companies. They
will often have the same
look, format, paper, lay-i
out, and items you fill out'
for personal information
such as your social securi-
ty number, contact infor-
mation, and credit card ac-
count number.
,Through the years, con-
artists have tricked many
people into giving in to
what was thought to be a
good thing, but turned out
to be a sour deal. Thieves
have stolen items such as
money, homes, posses-
sions, and even their vic-
tim's identity.

Help us recognize


extraordinary towns people
The Mayo Free Press enjoys doing stories about ordinary,
people that live their lives day to day doing extraordinary
things. Most of the time these special individuals are the
first to say, "who me"? "I don't do anything that deserves
recognition."
Those very attributes are what makes them extraordi-
nary. That's why the Mayo Free Press would like to tell their
story. If you know of someone in the county that has giv-
en that "extra something" on the behalf of others give us a
call at 386-294-1210 or email us at
mayofreepress@alltel.net. Perhaps their story will become
part of this series.

The Second Law of Ther-
mo Dynamics basically
states that the universe is
running down; everything
is getting worse as time
goes on. Is this true of
Christians? Are modern
Christians only shadows
of the great saints of the
past? Would the Chris-
tians you know be able to
go to the stake and suffer
the flames licking at their
bodies rather then recant
their faith in Christ?
Today the world ob-
serves the Christian com-
munity wondering, where
is their God? (Joel 2:17).
Scrutiny of the Christian's
life should produce evi-
dence saying, God is alive
and well on planet earth!
Future events are inter-
esting. But as interesting
as the study of eschatol-
ogy is, Christians need to
pay more attention to the
mundane details of every-
day life; such as paying
bills in a timely manner,
obeying the law, being
positive role models, be-
ing good spouses/parents,
etc. Until Christians pay
attention to the nitty-grit-
ty of the so called nasty-
now-and-now the skeptics
are going to, be asking,
where is their God? (Joel
2:17).
Christians really do
need to let this little light

To celebrate the event, local
county Farm Bureaus do-
nated over $800 of fresh
Florida produced fruit, veg-
etables, meats and dairy
products to the charity.
During Food Check-Out
week, Farm Bureau mem-

atively marked the time of
the year when most Ameri-
cans have earned enough
disposable income to pay
for all the food they eat,
both at home and away, for
an entire year.

"The recipient of the free
groceries was the Ronald

a great charity," added
Land. "We have worked
with them for ten years to
celebrate this event."
There were several mem-

Land went on to say "we
need to tell our story at
every event we can. People
need to understand that

told that it is abundant as

CA-MRSA-What is it?


Linda Smith
There are some types of
bacteria that causes skin
infections that are becom-
ing resistant to antibiotics
and that was the topic the
program presented at the
weekly Rotary meeting by
Dr. Pete Gallogly, of
Lafayette Public Health
Department. CA-MRSA
which means Community
Associated Methicillin Re-
sistant Staphylococcus Au-
reus was the topic of the
day.
Dr. Gallogly said that
there is beginning to be an
increase in certain types of
skin infections here and
across the country. And it
is .caused by bacteria that
does not respond to certain
types of antibiotics.
This type of infection is
carried on the skin and in
the nose. About 25% of
people carry the bacteria
but never get an infection
from it, others do get the
infection, and/or spread
the infection.
MRSA is a type of staph
infection, a small percent-
age of which is resistant to
certain antibiotics. It usual-
ly affects sick folks (in hos-
pitals, nursing homes etc.)
or folks who already have
weakened immune symp-
toms.
CA-MRSA which means
community association
MRSA, usually causes in-
fections in persons outside
healthcare settings, or oth-
erwise healthy persons. So
MRSA now is occurring


out in the communities.
One way it is spread into
the communities is that
people in the hospitals
bring it out and pass it on
(unbeknowing, of course).
How is it spread? It
spreads from skin to skin
contact, like shaking
hands, or coming in con-
tact with contaminated
items, like sharing razors,
or towels, etc.
Those most likely to be
at risk for this type of bac-
terial infection seems to be
athletes, because of close
quarters locker, shower,
etc. military recruits, again
by living, and sharing
close quarters, and chil-
dren, of course they share
everything, toys, drinks,
etc. "In our county, the tar-
get group of people seems
to be teens and young
adults' said Gallogly.
Dr. Gallogly showed a
slide projection of what
the skin may look like
when having this infec-
tion. It appears as an ab-
scess or a boil on the skin,
it may be red, swollen and
painful. People often
think it might.have been a
spider bite, when in actu-
ality it is MESA.
The treatment is usually
to do an incision and drain
the area, and also send a
sample for a culture, basi-
cally to see if it is MESA
and what antibiotics it is
resistant too.
According to Dr. Gallo-
gly, this is why this is a'
health concern at this


.mm


f".'i
Dr. Pete Gallogly, Lafayette
Health Care presented the

time, because this type
bacteria is becoming resis-
tant to more and more
types of antibiotics.
, He gave some tips on
how to help prevent get-
ting this type of skin infec-
tion:
Hand washing (very,
very important!)
Immediately shower-
ing after an athletic activi-
ty
avoid whirlpools or
common tubs
Do not share razors,
towels or athletic gear
maintain clean facili-
ties and equipment
and if infected seek
proper treatment, includ-
ing having a culture done
of the organism.
Dr. Gallogly said, "I am
not trying to scare anyone,
just wanting folks to be
aware and cautious." And
since a lot of bacteria is
now becoming resistant to
current antibiotics, accord-
ing to Gallogly, he advises
folks to avoid overuse of
antibiotics.

Basketball season concludes


Most Hornet fans thought
the exhausting basketball
season that saw both the
boys and girls varsity teams
take district crowns, and
the ladies reaching the re-
gional finals was over, but
the third through sixth
graders have brought their
brand of exciting basketball
to Mayo over the past six
weeks.
Running the league this
year was Ann Murphy. A
special thanks has to go out
to all of Ann's efforts in
making the league another
outstanding season.
Murphy not only ran the
league, but also officiated
for the ladies, prepared the
gym, both prior and after
games, and managed the
photos, the stats and sched-
ules, making the league a
huge success once again.
A special.thanks has to go
out to all the coaches and
the officials for taking part.
Most certainly, the players
and the parents have to be
given praise for their partic-
ipation and support for the
league. Other important

contributors were the
scorekeepers that kept
everybody aware of the
game situations. Names
are intentionally being left
out here because nobody

a large group of folks to
make leagues like this a
success, and Mayo certain-
ly got that from several ar-

Ann Murphy takes a much needed rest from officiating during a timeout. Ann did an outstanding
job of running the league making for another great season for the third and sixth graders basketball
season. A very special thanks needs to go out to a very special person and her staff of scorekeep-
ers, coaches, parents, players and officials.


the annual success of this
program with each role vi-
tal.
The league begins the
third week of January each
year -and is a very worth-
while program to involve
your child in. You will not
be disappointed in the ef-
forts of the staff and coach-
es. Look to see a lot more
participants in 2007.

Pearson said. These part-
ners were the Lafayette
County Sheriff's Office, the
County Extension Office,
Lafayette High School,
Lafayette Elementary,
Lighthouse Christian Acad-
emy, Florida Parks and
Recreation (Blue Springs
and Troy Springs), Subs
and More, Two Sisters,

Jason Land, according to
Pearson, supplied and dis-
tributed to every child a
chug of milk at LES, LCA
and the Learning Corner.
The total amount of chugs
of milk given was over 600.
Also, there were 500 free
green and blue t-shirts fur-
nished by the LCHD to
anyone who participated.
The LCHD also thanks
LES coaches Jerry Tyson
and Becky Thomas for al-
lowing Merry Moo to come
on Wednesday and Thurs-
day, Feb. 15 and 16, to talk
to students at P.E. about
physical activity and its im-
portance in being healthy
and physically fit.
At 8:30 a.m., the opening
ceremony took place at
LCS. There were 123 indi-
viduals from pre-k to 8th
grade students and teach-
ers in attendance.
Earlier that morning, at
7 a.m. ir the LHS weight
room, athletes who work
out at the gym in the morn-
ings, challenged a teacher
or- a member of the school
board to join them for 20 to
30 minute in a work-out.
Two coaches supervised
this event. Then, at 8 a.mn.,
15 people participated in
the aerobic class which was
open to everyone in the
community.


Members of the commu-
nity canoed on the Suwan-
nee river from Blue Springs
State Park to the Hal
Adams Bridge. There were
15 participants. Before this
event began, the park
rangers discussed the issue
of safety as well as how to
properly get into the canoe.
It took approximately one
and one-half hours to travel
from Blue Springs State
Park to the Hal Adams
Bridge. The park rangers
assisted the canoers in get-
ting out of their canoes and
putting them onto the trail-
er.
Sheriff Carson McCall
and Captain John Young
directed traffic from 12
p.m. to 12:30 p.m., as mem-
bers of the community
walked from the Mayo
Town Park to the high
school and back to the park.
There were 35 participants
in this event.
At 1 p.m., a 2 mile hike
took place at Troy Springs
State Park. Only 9 people
were taken on this guided 2
mile hike of the park.

thirty minute walk on the
track at 3:30 p.m., the Mayo
Correctional Employees
participating in aerobics at
their facility at 3:30 p.m., a 1

County's Step-up-Florida
campaign is always Feb. 17.

,day of Step Up Florida, but
to make physical activity a
:way of life. Remember 60-a
day the Florida way,".Pear-
son said.

Mayo to have air condi-
tioning. "In the middle 50s,
I installed an air condition-
er in the store. We had
families to drop in just to
cool off," Croft said.
Other changes Croft ob-
served was the installation
of Mayo's first traffic light
and the fence law. The
fence law required that all
animals be kept in a fence.
Prior to this law, farm ani-


mals such as hogs and cat-
tle would roam across
town and graze in various
sections, sometimes caus-
ing accidents.
Croft thanks everyone
fot their help through the
years in making Croft's
Thriftway. a success. "The
people of Lafayette County
and surrounding counties
have made us what we are
and we love you and shall
never forget, you," Croft
said.

How


Continued From Page.1A

According to the Jan. 25
Federal Trade Commis-
sion report, 686,000 com-
plaints relating to fraud
were filed in 2005. The
FTC listed the top ten
fraud complaints. Identity
theft was at the top of the
list, according to the re-
port.
There are many types of
scams. Examples include
fake charities, tqlemarket-
ing fraud, the Nigerian
scam, work-at-home
schemes, and insurance
scams.
Charles Bronson, Flori-
da Commissioner of Agri-
culture and Consumer
,Service, suggests ways in
which you can become


protected against fraud.
According to Bronson, the
more educated people are
about fraud, the better
protected they will be.
"When consumers know
what scams are out there
arid what to look for, they.
can take steps to protect
themselves," Bronson said.
Identify. Theft
According to Bronson,
identity theft continues to
be a growing threat to
consumers. In order to
protect themselves from
having their identity
stolen, Bronson suggests
the consumer should al-
ways review credit card
statements to make sure
there are no unauthorized
purchases. In addition,
. credit card and other per-


sonal information should
never be given -over the
telephone unless you
made the contact.
Investments
Bronson warns con-
sumers about investments
that.promises high returns
with little or no invest-
ment in the part of the con-
sumer. To avoid the trap,
Bronson advises the con-
sumer to ask about any
fees, commissioners, pe-
nalities, and other costs
you might be paying.
Charities
SAccording to Bronson,
an organization that has
an impressive sounding
name does' not always
mean that it is reputable.
Bronson also warns con-
sumers to be very cautious


about any organization
that sends out a "runner"
to pick up your contribu-
tion. Legitimate charitable
organizations, according
to Bronson, are willing to
wait to receive your dona-
tion.
Bronson encourages
consumers to contact the
Department's Consumer
Hotline at 1-800-435-7354
for any information about
a business, such as a histb-
ry of complaints, before
doing business with them.
On a local level, Sheriff
Carson McCall says, "Be
conscious of any deals: that
may sound too good to be
true. If in doubt, please
call your local Sheriff's of-
fice to verify the validity of
the deal."

What you should know about menopause


(NAPSI)-According to a new survey of
female executives, menopause is moving
out of the shadows and into the boardroom.
The survey, conducted among members
of the. National Association for Female
Executives (NAFE), found that half of the
respondents currently in menopause (45
percent) said it was worse than expected,
over one-fifth (22 percent) said it was much
worse than expected and three-quarters (75
percent) are concerned their menopausal
symptoms will occur at inconvenient times.
Menopause is the natural stage in a
woman's aging process when her ovaries
stop producing estrogens. Menopause can
occur naturally or may be induced by
surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Since
estrogens are largely responsible for
developing and maintaining the female.
reproductive system, reduced levels can
cause uncomfortable symptoms.
The survey revealed that 88 percent of
NAFE members surveyed have had some
experience with menopause and two thirds
(67 percent) of this group have experienced
menopausal symptoms once a week or
more.
.* 95 percent of this group experience
physical symptoms-most commonly, hot
flashes (80 percent) and night sweats (74
percent);
S79 percent of this group experience
symptoms that are emotional or affect their
mental functioning, such as forgetfulness or
diminished concentration (57 percent),
irritability (53 percent) and mood changes.
(53 percent).
According to the American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG),
the first wave of baby boomer women (born
1945-1960) are now entering meno-pause
and another 20 million will reach
menopause in the next decade. These
women must weigh the risks and benefits of
treating their menopausal symptoms with
hormone therapy. .
A Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study,
sponsored by the National Institutes of
Health, found that there was potentially

increased health risk associated with use of
estrogens with progestin at.higher doses or
for extended periods of time.
According to Diane DiLalla, age 56, "When
I turned 50 I started having hot flashes arid
they were very uncomfortable, especially at
work. At first, my doctor suggested I try some
herbal.remedies but they didn't work for .me. I
was concerned about taking hormone
therapy but my doctor told me I could take
Cenestin, which is a plant based estrogen
therapy, to treat my menopausal symptoms."
Her doctor's viewpoint is echoed by several
professional organizations, including the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and
North American Menopause Society (NAMS),
which recommend hormone therapy for the
treatment of menopausal symptoms at the
lowest doses for the shortest duration.
According to James A. Simon, MD, clinical
professor of obstetrics and gynecology,
.George Washington University, Washington
D.C., Medical Director, The Women's Health
Research Center@ in Laurel, Maryland, and
immediate past president of NAMS, whether
or not to use hormone therapy is a personal
decision. "A woman needs to weigh the
impact of her menopausal symptoms on her
personal and work life with her individual
health status and history."

Mrs. Coffins Spirua ist
Heaer, Reaurer, Adtvisor
All who are unsuccessful, unlucky; dissatisfied, let the woman who knows
help you. She removes evil influence. If husband or wife is unfaithful,
see her now. She settles lovers quarrels, helps you gain the lost love and
affection of the one you love and shows you the way to happiness.
She names friends and enemies and tells you if friends are true or false.
She locates lost & stolen property. She does not claim to be God. She is
jusl a sern ant of Ihr Lord "ho ua, brought here to help humanity. If you
hae an problem concerning the past, present, future, love, marriage,
busint- la'u uiil. linll.nc1C. lhialih; if you are in trouble, sick or in love,
thllel' no pr.illrm t, great that she Cannot solve.
