of the road, then traveled

A well-known speaker
started off his seminar by
holding up a $20 bill. In the

"who would like this $20

He said, "I am ,going to

He then asked, "Who still

still worth $20.
Many times in our lives,
we are dropped, crumpled,
and ground into the dirt by
the decisions we make and
the circumstances that
come our way.
We feel as though we are
worthless. But no matter
what has happened or what
will happen, you will never
lose your value. Dirty or

The Bible has a lot to say
about Heaven. The Bible
describes Heaven as the
dwelling place of God (Acts
7:49); the very throne room
of Almighty God (Revela-
tion 7:9)! Heaven will be
the final dwelling place of
those who believe what
God's Word teaches; espe-
cially in regard to the sacri-
ficial death of the Son of
God for the sins of
mankind (Romans 5:8; John
17:24; I John 5:11-13). And
it is pictured as a happy
place, a place of bliss and of
perfection (Revelation 21:1-
7). There will be uninter-
rupted, eternal, fellowship
with the Lord and family
and friends that have been
"I would believe it if
someone came back from
the dead and told me about
Heaven," you say. In Luke
16:19-31 you .can read the
narrative between two men
who have passed on. The
afterlife was now real!
When the rich man realized
the horror of his situation,
his utter helplessness to
change his circumstances,
he wanted someone to go
and warn his brethren
(Luke 16:28). Abraham

Abraham said, if they hear

Woman's Club presents beautification project to Rotarians
What do sporting clays,
murals, Mayo Woman's
Club and Mayo Rotary Club
have in common? Well,
Heather Neill, a member of
both clubs, presented a pro-
posal from the Woman's
Club to the Rotary club at
the weekly meeting.
First Neill shared with Ro-
tarians a project that the
Woman's Club has adopted
and hopes to see come to
fruition in the near future.
Primarily this is a beautifica-
tion project for Mayo, which
will involve murals being
painted on some of the
buildings around town.
Neill showed a film presen-
tation from the town of Lake
Placid, which is famous for
their murals in the beautiful
city, and she said that this is
the type beautification pro-
ject the Woman's Club
hopes to undertake.
Neill explained exactly
what the process would in-
volve and that they had be-
gun meeting with others
such as a group involved in
murals in Alachua County
* to find out exactly how and
where to begin this huge un-

Neill was appealing to the
Rotary club for their help in
this effort. She also stressed
_that this is something that
will take lots of volunteer
work, donations, fund-rais-
ers, etc. She said that these
murals are high quality, and
made to last through the
One of the exciting ideas
that Neill presented for rais-
ing money was a Sporting
Clays Tournament with. all
the trimmings. Where can
one hold such a tourna-
ment? Well, actually closer
-to home than you might-
think. Neill introduced her
guest speaker for the day,
Tom Hurley, of Hurley's
Waccasassa Plantation locat-
ed at 2399 NE on CR 138
He told about the lodge
facilities, the hunting facili-
ties, horseback riding, shoot-
ing ranges etc. He expressed
how they have hosted nu-
merous tournaments at their
plantation, as fund-raisers
for different organizations
and raised a lot of money for
these organization. He was
opening this idea up to Ro-
tarians and offering the
Plantation as a place to hold
the event, to raise money for

of stories at "The
Kaleidoscope Story Cafe"
Tasty tales will be on
stage when the Kaleido-
scope Storytellers perform at
the Lafayette County Public
Library on June 6, at 10 a.m.
The Kaleidoscope Story-
tellers are Terry Deer and
Suzie Shaeffer, story drama-
tists from the Daytona Beach
area who tour Florida each
summer using puppets, po-
etry, creative dramatics, tan-
dem storytelling and audi-
ence participation to delight
and involve their listeners.
This summer they are wear-
ing "story chef" aprons and
hats-perfect attire for serv-
ing up a pot full of fun, ac-
tion-packed stories in a pro-
duction they call "The Kalei-
doscope Story Cafe."
Former children's librari-
ans, Deer and Shaeffer
specifically design their live-
ly summer performances to
support the Florida Library
Youth Program's goal of en-
couraging children to be-
come lifelong readers and li-
brary users. "We were de-
lighted when we heard that
the state-wide theme for
2006 would be Book Feast,"
says Shaeffer, "because so
many of the folk tales we
love are about food and
feasting and we felt a cafe
would be a fun setting for
introducing these stories to

Watermelon promotion up 100 percent
The number of retail grocery chains par-
ticipating in the annual Florida watermelon
promotion has doubled over last year, Flori-

Commissioner Charles H. Bronson an-
Participating retailers from Florida to
Canada are advertising Florida watermel-
ons in their store circulars and increasing the
size of their produce section displays from
May 7 through June 25. Twelve grocery
chains with 4,100 retail stores have joined
the promotion, an increase of 100 percent
over last year's 2,050 stores.
The Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services is conducting the
promotion in conjunction with the Florida
Watermelon Association, which represents
approximately 180 4lorida growers. The as-
sociation funded this year's campaign with
$50,000. Last year's watermelon promotion
generated approximately $9.5 million in ad-
ditional retail sales.
Kroger -- which kicked off the watermel-
on promotion in early May -- substantially
increased their sales of watermelons this
year. The retailer's Atlanta, Cincinnati,
Great Lakes, Memphis and Mid Atlantic di-
visions represented more than 1,300 stores.
The chain ran Florida watermelon ads for
814 stores the week of May 7 and 490 stores
the week of May 14.
Other retail grocery chains that will par-

tion in coming weeks include AWI Shurfine,
Bozzuto's, Hannaford Bros., Harveys, Kash
'N' Karry, Metro, Nash Finch, Price Chop-
per, Sobeys and Spartan.
The participating chains have stores in
Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maine,
Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania.,
Virginia, and Quebec, Canada.
Florida growers annually harvest approx-
imately 25,000 acres of watermelons. They
received more than $67 million in 2004 for
their watermelon crop, ranking Florida third
among watermelon producing states.
Marketing programs conducted by the
Florida Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services have increased sales of Flori-
da grown products by more than $1 billion
during the past four. years. The Department
continually -conducts trade missions and
events to develop and enhance business re-
lationships that benefit Florida agricultural
producers. In addition to these ongoing ini-
tiatives, the division has also dramatically
expanded its premier annual produce mar-
keting campaigns that promote fresh Flori-
da fruits and vegetables harvested during
the winter and spring months when Florida
is the dominant U.S. supplier.
The D1epartment is statutorily mandated
to provide professional marketing services
to Florida's agricultural community through
its Division of Marketing and Development.

The World's smallest basketball team invaded Mayo
once again after a long absence and with the help of
many alumni members, put on quite a show for the fans
at the local gym.
A special thanks goes out to Chan Perry, Mark Beach,
Joey Pearson, Carl Jackson, Jerry Hill, Tomar Jones, Jeff
Scott, 'Billy Shows, Jerry Tyson, Derek Garland, Tom
Lashley, Henry McCray and Lance McCray in making
the event a success.
The mini-trotters would pull out a narrow two point
win, but not without some hook and crook that provided
a few laughs to all those in attendance.
Alumni Basketball Challenge
The men and women's alumni teams took to the hard-
wood at the Mayo gym to,raise more funds for the bas-
ketball program at Mayo, and put on quite a show as
each competed in expanded quarters with the veterans
showing experience does matter.
The Lafayette ladies alumni team played a fast paced
game against recent graduates and pulled out a hard
earned 58-56 win in a tight contest throughout behind 15
point performances by L. Hwof and M. Murphy. The
game was deadlocked heading into the final period with
the red team outscoring the white team 16-14 behind two
key three pointers by Hwof.
Other contributors were A. Murphy'dropping in 10
points, which was matched by A. Hill with 10. T. Sellers
scored 4 points, while F. Pugh and S. Reid scored two
points each for the red team.
The white team. brought back some memories of the re-
cent past as Stacey Lewis showed that she has not lost a
step pouring in 20 points.
Another recent graduate, Chandra Shine, scored 15
points. Other ladies netting points was Kayla Hood *

L. Murphy would not score but turned in a nice effort
for the white team in a game that saw the white team

by Page, and. 9 points by Howard as the comeback fell
short in the end to the much larger veteran squad.
A The Mayo Alumni team break huddle in preparation of
the contest with the mini-trotters. All the Alumni members
did their part in support of the Hornets basketball program
making the event a fun evening for the fans.
Coach Derek Garland surprised everyone that he lasted the 15 minute quarters and was still able to run the court so effectively.
Marcus Edwards would return to the Mayo gym to team with

NOTICE OF CDBG PUBLIC HEARING
The Lafayette County Board of County Com-
missioners will conduct'the following public
sessions beginning at 10:00 a.m. during its
June 12, 2006 Board meeting: 1. a brief fair
housing educational session, including an in-
troduction to fair housing laws, the local fair
housing ordinance, enforcement -and assis-
tance, and 2. a public hearing on its proposed
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
application. The meeting will be conducted in
the County Courthouse, Commission room,
located at 120 West Main Street, Mayo, Flori-
The public hearing will be to obtain comments
or suggestions for a proposed 2006 applica-
tion to the Florida Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) for a Small Cities Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to,
$700,000. These funds must be used for one
of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income per-
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of
slums or blight; or
3. To meet other, community development
needs of recent-origin having a particular ur-
gency because existing conditions pose a se-
rious and immediate threat to the health or
welfare of the community and where other fi-
nancial resources are not available to meet
The categories of activities for which these
funds may be used are in the areas of hous-'
ing, neighborhood revitalization, or economic
development and include such improvement
activities as construction of infrastructure
(roads, water, sewer, drainage), acquisition of
real property, loans to private-for-profit busi-
ness, rehabilitation of houses, For each activi-
ty that is proposed, at least 51% of the per-
sons benefiting must be in the low or moder-
ate income range. In developing an application
for submission to DCA, the County must plan
to minimize displacement of persons as a re-
sult of planned CDBG activities, and is re-
quired to develop a plan to assist displaced
persons. Additional information regarding the

Exercise tips for seniors
Exercise tips for seniors
It's important for people of all ages, especially
seniors, to stay active. According to the Centers for
Disease Control, being physically active can reduce
your risk of dying from heart disease and
decreases the risk for colon cancer, diabetes and
high blood pressure. Physical activity also helps
control weight; contributes to healthy bones,
muscles and joints; relieves the pain of arthritis;
reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression; and
can decrease the need for hospitalizations,
physician visits and medications. Indeed, there's a
lot riding on incorporating exercise into your,
There's no better time than now to start
exercising. Be sure to check with your doctor before
increasing your physical activity, especially if you
have a chronic disease or family history of chronic
disease, chest pain, shortness of breath, high blood
pressure, asthma, diabetes, blood clots, infections
or fever, joint swelling, hip surgery or a hernia.
Here are some tips
to help you get started:
Don't just jump into a fitness routine. First,
stretch your arms, legs and back. Start off slowly,
gradually increasing the pace of your exercise.
Don't do too much too soon or you will hurt yourself.
For example, the AARP suggests starting with 10
minutes of walking before going to 20 and then 30
minutes. For a strength-training program using
weights and machines, talk to a fitness instructor on
how much weight to lift and how to use the

Exercise should make you feel better, not worse.
A little soreness, discomfort or fatigue is normal.
Listen to your body if you feel lightheaded, a
shortness of breath, a sudden, severe headache,
are sweating,excessively, or have painsin the chest,
stomach or anywhere else, you should stop
exercising. If symptoms persist, contact your doctor.
If you are on medication or have a condition that
alters your heart rate, don't use your pulse as a
judge of how fast your heart is or should be beating.
Wear the proper protective equipment for your
activity. If you are biking, wear a helmet. If you are
in-line skating, wear a helmet as well as knee and
elbow pads. Protective gear should be of good
quality and fit properly. It may be expensive, but it's
an expense that is well worth it.
Watch out for the elements, If it's hot, exercise in
the early morning or early evening when it's cooler,
or stay in the shade and wear lightweight clothing. If
it's cold, dress in layers, and be careful of ice and
It's especially important to stay hydrated when
you are engaging in exercise that makes you sweat.
Drink before, during and after exercise to prevent
A cool down is just as important as a warm up.

rate back to its normal level.

"What's a fish
By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
Go to your local fish market
and they'll tell you, to the pen-
ny, what each fish there is
worth at that moment. They
will often times have a price
sign stuck in the ice, right be-
side the fish's head so you
don't even have to know what
kind .of fish it is, but you'll
know it's worth $12.95 a
If you look around, you'll
notice different types of fish
have different prices. Some
types of fish are priced higher
than others even though
they're lying right next to one
another in the ice bed. A fish is
not a fish, is not a fish? Aren't
all fish created equal? Come
back in a few days and some of
the prices will have changed.
The fish you saw three days
ago for $12.95 per pound is.
now $9.95 per pound. Come
back the next day and the same
fish is $8.95 a pound. The
price of that fish .is dropping,
$1 per pound per day; I'll come
back in a week. A week later
you conclude that someone
else obviously bought, that fish
the day before you returned,
but you learned old fish aren't
as valuable as new fish.
Ask commercial fishermen
the worth of a fish, and he'll
tell you the current wholesale
price and let you know that
price will be less by the time
he returns with his catch. Fur-
thermore, the decline in'
wholesale fish price by the
pound appears to be directly
correlated with the increase in
diesel cost by the gallon.
I asked a fellow in Panama.
City how much a fish was
worth. We were at the yacht
basin standing beside his well
polished 63-foot sport fishing
wagon x% ith a triple decker fly
bridge trimmed with numerous
gold international fishing
reels. He said come aboard. I
did, after itiping off mn feet
on the section of carpet on the
dock \i h the name of the ves-
'sel embroidered on it. The
cockpit was a large dance floor
with twin. fighting lounge
chairs port and starboard, erm-,
broidered name on the back-
rest, of course. On the transom
was a hide-away sink, see-
through live-well, raw and
fresh water wash down and
tackle storage. Looking for-
ward, there was a full size
chest freezer for fish food, a
refrigerator for people food
and drink and a bait prep sta-
tion 'larger than a drafting
board table with integrated
tackle storage. A stairwell
leads to the primary helm sta-
tion on the first tier of the fly
bridge. Gold plated rod hold-
ers dot the brightwork. A wrap
around sofa framed the cap-
tains' chair so guest could have
a great view of a bank of elec-
tronics that would shame
NASA in the 1960s. The sofa
had a stocked baby refrigerator
so you wouldn't have to go up
and down the stairs to get a
fresh drink. Embroidered
name on the sofa? What do
you think? A stainless ladder
dropped from above and lead
to the secondary helm station.
Looking up the ladder, it
seemed to me to be the "stair-
way to heaven," judging by
how far it went up. I can't
imagine anyone climbing up
that thing in a rolling sea with-
out a safety harness. I suppose,
in. the event of bad -weather,
you could transfer helm con-
trol to the upper station so the
Lord could take the boat in!
Through the double doors
was an all mahogany salon.
Walls, sofa,' chairs, table,
hutch. gal le.v/wet bar, etc. were
all trimmed in mahogany in
such detail that the grain of the
wood was seamless. The floor
was covered in a rich bur-
gundy carpet, except for be-
hind the bar, which was Italian
tile' engrained with seashells.
Going down and forward, we
looked at the queen sized guest
quarters and full sized bath-
room. The term "head" doesn't
apply to me when the head
was larger thau the bathroom I
have in m\ house.
We peeked into the king
sized captains' quarters. "This
is where I stay," he said and
closed the door. I assumed it
had its' own "head." You know,
one of those dank mildew
smelly cramped, toilet, closets *
you find on party boats. He
didn't let me in his quarters be-
cause he was a little embar-
rassed he couldn't afford a
showcase bathroom like the
guests were privy to, or so I
made m\ self belie%.e.

more. I found out it costs $800i
per month to ha\e his boat
float at that slip. Thai fee in-
cludes t\ o parking places next
to your shp. For $2000 a day
he'll have his captain take out
your party for a wonderful day
on the water. The mate's tip is
not included, by the by. He
was a gracious gentleman but
never quite answered my
question as to the worth of a
Two hours of prep time on
Friday night, to make sure
most things are rigged and
ready, to minimize doing
much work in the darkness of
the early morning, meaning
that your Honey Dumpling
didn't get any "quality time"
thday with friends and fish: (I-r) King Warren, Keith, Nancy, Syleta and Kelley
after the work week. Then an
hour and a half drive to the
crowded boat ramp where it
takes all your restraint not to
blow your top at the ill pre-
pared fellow ahead of you
who obviously shared quality
time with his Honey
Dumpling the night before.
Then an hour or so bumpy
boat ride to the best fishing
spot in your GPS to find out
that three other boats have
stolen your secret number.
The bite is slow so you decide
to take a snack break, you ask
your buddy, whose sole re-
sponsibility was to bring the
food and .drinks, for a sand-
wich and soda. The look on
his face tells you he spent
quality time with his Honey
Dumpling last night too and
forgot the groceries. You
manage to put a fev. fish .n the
boat before hunger and thirst
force aborting the fishing mis-
sion. After the mental anguish
of loading the boat back on the
trailer .at the public boat ramp,
you find yourself at the Quick-
ie Gas Food Mart and Laundry
Emporium putting $25 worth
of gas in your truck, $50
worth of gas in your boat, 2
quarts of two-cycle oil ($5), a
cold six pack of liquid prosac,
bag of stale chips and a pep-
percorn hotdog ($11). (Defin-
ition: Peppercorn hotdog-
what you assume to be a spicy
all beef link with a sprinkling
of peppercorns only to find
out, after first bite, that' the
"peppercorns" where just
roasted flies that got stuck on
the wiener as it rolled around
for hours on the machine).
The party continues once
you pull back on the road, af-
ter you donate the chewed and
unchewed portion of the pep-
percorn dog to the roadside
raccoons. Your buddy offers to
help clean up the boat and the
fish, but you're so ticked off
that for the sake of the friend-
ship you feel a little time alone
is best and tell him you'll take
care of it this time. Soon you
find yourself alone in the
backyard with a few dead fish
and a bomber squadron of bit-
ing flies that somehow heard
what you did with their kin-
folk at the QGFM&LE. Still
scratching the whelps from the
flies, you toss the chunks of
bagged fish parts in the garage
freezer, drag yourself to .the
shower, flop down in that
nasty over .stuffed: chair she's
been dying to have hauled off
to the dump, pop the last can
of warm liquid prosac and re-
ceive the silent treatment from
your Honey Dumpling.' "Hon-
ey, do you want me to cook
that fish for diner tomorrow
night?" No answer and she's
sitting across the room staring
at you. The worth of those
fish? I don't believe math ap-

grunts to the boat at a rate that
is only curbed by the time it
takes you to remove the fish
and put on more bait. He is ab-
sorbed in the moment like salt
in water. He is the best fisher-
men the world has ever
known. Just ask him. The sat-
isfaction of digging a big
grouper off the bottom to the
point of getting winded brings
the child out in a grown man.
,You can tell by the way he
poses for a boat photo and
then sneaks a few peeks in the
cooler to marvel at the accom-
plishment. The roller coaster
facial expression brought on
by a submarine missile strike
from a five foot plus barracu-
da on a trolled tube lure. The
aerial dance brings silence till
splash down. "Did you see
that?" "Somebody get the
rod!" The naked flicker of a
redfish tail, bringing out the
springer spaniel instinct in a'
guide as she poles ,her client
within casting range. "Fish
ON!" Who's more excited? I
vote the fish but I could be
Those four quick scenarios
are all very different but the
same. You see, we can add up
the cost of equipment and so
forth, the value of our time
and even factor in what we
could have been doing if we
weren't fishing. But we can't
put a price on that single red-
fish, or one grunt out of a hun-
dred or more, or that dancing
barracuda that most people
would just release anyway.
The value of the fish is in the
The fish retailer and com-
mercial fishermen are
painfully aware of the cost of
getting fish. They know the
value of that fish declines
from the time it is caught to
the time it is sold. They're
simply trying to affix a dollar
figure on the fish. They're in
the fish business but the val-
ue of the fish is in the mo-
Sportfishermen look at fish
a bit different butthere is a
similarity. The man with the
63 footer spent millions to be
in the lap of luxury the mo-
ment the fish struck. The oth-
er fellow endured' hurdles
and hardship to have a brief
moment with a few fish. The
scenarios depicted the high
moments with a fish but ne-
glected all the time necessary
to be there when it happened.
Will the little boy remember
dragging out of bed early, the
hour long boat ride, the cap-
tains' name, the bait used,
etc?. Probably not. He will
remember the moment with
the fish for the rest of his life.
