It's that time of year
again. The hot weather is


encouraging snakes to
come out of their hiding
places and become more
active and visible to the
public. Last year, there

encountering snakes and

One such incident, in
particular, involved a Put-

Joe Guidry, on Saturday,
Oct. 1. Guidry was at-

Guidry shot the snake:
Then, believing the snake
was dead, he attempted to
pick it up with his hand
and was bitten as he was

An appointment


to be kept


In I Kings 2:2 David says, I go the
way of all the earth... This statement
was in reference to his approaching
death. DEATH a situation we must
all face.
Death is separation. Physical death
is separation from our loved ones.
Spiritual death is eternal separation
from God, the ultimate separation (Ro- -n
mans 6:23). It is the just remuneration i'.'
for our sin. Adam and Eve, in a perfect David H. Matier
environment, in which they would
have lived for ever, sinned. Thus ...sin entered into the
world, and death by sin (Romans 5:12).
Everyone since then has been born a sinner (Psalm 51:5,
58:3; Job 25:24). Everyone has a sin nature! Haven't you
ever wondered why it is so easy to do wrong and so hard to
do right? Christians have this sin nature (I John 1:8) and
they do sin (I John 1:10) and the Bible tells the Christian
what to do to get back into right fellowship with God, If we
confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (I John 1:9).
Since all are sinners (Romans 3:23) all must die be eter-
nally separated from the Father (Romans 6:23). To avoid
the consequences of sin Jesus said, ...you must be born
again (John 3:3). This is accomplished by accepting the
Truth The Lord Jesus Christ died to pay your sin debt
(John 1:12, 13).
Have you been born again?

I feel something needs to
be done as far as some form
of animal control here in
Lafayette county. I worked
as a animal control officer
for over 10 years combined.
Two of those years was as a
animal cruelty investigator.
I have NEVER seen as
much animal abuse and ne-
glect as I have here!.
I saw a rabid dog on 06-
19-06. Believe. me, I have
seen enough cases of rabies
to know what it is. Either
we start taking care of this
issue now, at a lower cost,
or we will deal with it later
at 'a much higher cost.
Hopefully, a child will not
be killed or injured before
something is done.

The kindergarten classes at
Lafayette Elementary
School had a fun filled
month in April learning
about community helpers
and transportation.
Many professionals in our
community were generous
enough to speak with
our students about their
work, uniforms, tools,
background, education
and their mode
of transportation.

Very Important!

Dear Parents and Stu-
dents:
I am writing to advise you
of some dress code changes
for next year. I would like to
give you this information
now, before you buy your
school clothes for next year.
Over the past few weeks, the
one concern that has repeat-
edly come up from parents is
fair enforcement of the dress
code. We have taken steps to
help solve this problem by
making the guidelines more
specific. This should elimi-
nate any issues or concerns
of "unequal" treatment as
long as the guidelines are fol-
lowed. Please understand,
the dress code will be en-
forced. Enforcement is the
only way to ensure equal
treatment.
The Lafayette High
School Dress Code is as fol-
tows:
Shirts and tops. must be
long enough to be tucked in
and cover the midriff area
when arms are extended
horizontally. "Spaghetti

Hunters generate record issuance of gator permits


In less than four hours,
all 4,406 of the state's alliga-
tor harvest permits were is-
sued to 2,155 hunters want-
ing to experience the thrill
of alligator hunting..
Despite a computer glitch
that blocked permit sales
for about an hour, 'permits
sold out between 10 a.m.


and 2 p.m. June 15.
This marks one of the few
times hunters have gobbled
up all available permits
since the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) began
offering statewide alligator
hunts in 1988. The FWC is-
sues permits on a. first-


come, first-served basis.
Last year, the FWC issued
only about; 2,800 of the
4,300 available permits be-
cause of a shortage of ap-.
plicants.
I At its February .meeting,
the FWC decided to give
hunters more fle\ibilit\ in
scheduling their hunts, and


it voted to extend the
length of the alligator hunt-
ing season. Also, unlike al-
ligator hunts in previous
years when hunters could
purchase only one permit,
the FWC offered. 2006,
hunters the option of buy-
ing' multiple permits.
These strategie: worked.


This year's season will in-
clude 41 additional hunt
days and will run Aug. 15
through Nov. 1.
. For more information on
alligator hunting, visit
MyFWC.com/gators and

pulling it by the tail.
Guidry later died, Friday,
Oct. 7, at Shands at the
University of Florida in
Gainesville.
There have been no re-
ported incidents involving
people and snakes so far
this year in Lafayette
County, according to
Karen Parker, who works
for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. "Snakes are
coldblooded and will be
out and about much more
during the warmer
months. I generally start
getting calls about snakes,
as soon as the weather
warms up," Parker said.
Snake bites resulting in
deaths are rare, not only in
Florida but also in this
country.. According to


Kevin Enge, a Herpetolo-
gist for the FWC, around
100 to 200 people are bit-
ten by snakes each year.
Parker advises people to
use caution whenever they
are outside, whether do-
ing yardwork, playing
with the children, hunting,
or any other outside activ-
ities. According to Parker
it is important to:
1. Wear thick leather
boots if you are walking
through tall grass.
2. Stay on the trails at all
times if possible as you are
walking.
3. Never put your -hands
and feet in places you can-
not see.
4. Always make sure
you are not within a
snake's striking distance if
you are picking up rocks
or firewood.

snake, Parker reccom-
mends that you use caution
and slowly get ouf of the
snake's way. "Walk around
the snake, giving it a little
berth-six feet is plenty. But
leave it alone and don't try
to catch it," Parker said.
When you are bitten by a
snake, the American Red
Cross reccommends that
you take the following
steps:
1. Wash the bite with
soap and water.
2. Immobilize the bitten
area and keep it lower than
the heart.
3. Get medical help.

tion on snake safety :and

"Voters around here will

"I am honored to have

Roy's Restaurant has new owners


By Joel Turner
Live Oak Publications






Roy's Restau-
rant was founded in 1969 by
Roy and Corrine Karageorge of
Steinhatchee. In the later years
of their owning the restaurant,
their son, George Karageorge,
managed the day-to-day opera-
tions.
In March of 1993, the origi-


nal building was destroyed in,
the Storm of the Century. The
,storm devastated much of the
Gulf Coast along Flonda.
Amazingly, the Karageorges
rebuilt Roy's Restaurant and
were in operation in less than
four months after the storm,,
in time for scallop season!
In March of 2004. after'
35 \ears, the Karageorges ^
sold Ro0's to Linda Wicker, '
Ben Wicker and Edna Tillis: '
Their policy upon purchas-
ing Ro\'s \\as. "if it's not broke,
don't fix it!""And it's been a
good police\ so far." part-owner
Ben Wicker said.
Improvements were needed


in some areas and several im-
provemerts, cosmetically in-
side and. out, were made by


painting the inside and also the,
wood deck. Well-known local
artist Linda DellaPoali,famous
for her North Florida Nature
Coast paintings, painted murals


throughout the restaurant. New
cabinets, table chairs and
booths were installed.


The technology of the restau-
,rant was also upgraded with the
installation of a new computers
and paging system to be more
effective in serving during busy


times.
Roy's 'has always had great
food portions and this won't
change. New menu items
have been added such as co-
conut shrimp, chicken
wings, mozzarella sticks,
lobster, chicken and tuna sal-
ads, as well as crab chowder.
Roy's has always been
known for its fried and
broiled foods, but the famous
'' restaurant also carries the
highest quality beef like rib-
eye steaks and prime rib, both
which are Certified Angus Beef.
Roy's has future plans to fur-
ther expand the w ood deck and
provide a great outdoor dining


experience, an expansion cus-
tomers can look forward to.
Roy's Restaurant is posi-
tioned right on the Gulf of Mex-
ico with the dining room facing
the Gulf. It's a great place to en-
joy the sunset.
Roy's owners will continue to
serve its' customers in the best
ways possible to make the din-
ing experience the best it can
be.

Hungry Howie's Pizza & Subs: Now open


Hungry Howie's Pizza &

Food Management Concepts

With four existing locations

the age of 25. He chose a piz-

Hungry Howie's, "I've been
coming to Steinhatchee since I
was a kid and can't believe
how much it has grown," said
Bell. Scouting the area, he
found a perfect location right
on the water. How great it
would be to have a pizza place
you can come to by boat or car,
he thought.. Renovations on a
historical building began when
Ryan worked with Jim Cof-
tingham of North Florida Gen-
eral Contractors of Alachua.
With the idea of keeping the
building rustic and keeping the
original wood and tin roof,
construction began in Novem-
ber of 2005. This building was
originally a fish camp and then
a restaurant, which closed

"Skydrifting"


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
The heat and humidity were
oppressing. After six hours of
enduring a hot Florida sum-
mer day on the water, we fi-
nally got to the 'heat' of the
day and the little wind that
was blowing vanished into the
thick wet air surrounding the
boat. There wasn't a breath of
air. All was still. The air did-
n't move. The water didn't
move. We didn't move. Qui-
etly we took,the solar beating.
I looked off the boat to the
horizon to find there wasn't
one. There was a seamless
blend from water to air. The
Gulf was pacific, mirroring
cotton ball clouds with such
purity of definition that, with
eyes wide open, one. would
easily think they were floating
with the clouds. An effortless
world with no gravity I called
'skydrifting.' Physical condi-
tions lined up in such an un-
usual manner, for a brief time,
that I was fortunate enough to
.pay attention so to take a
metaphysical jellyfish ride in
the open atmosphere. It's fun
to let the mind wander off
course at times. Some people
refer to it as heat stroke.
Whatever, it was cool being a
jellyfish for a moment.


Hopefully, that was a hu-
morous end-run around the
point I wanted to make. The
point is... sometimes it is good
to physically or mentally take
a step back from where to find
yourself, a sweltering hot. day
on a boat, for example, and
take a loose observation or
two. I took a few minutes to
skydrift, while at the same
time, others thought about the
heat. issue. Sometimes it is
fihealthy to step out to the bat-
ters box, take a couple prac-
tice swings on personal time
before resuming the grind of
the moment. Oops, I was,
somewhat, coloring outside of
the lines of fishing.
Scallops don't seem to be a
problem based on chit chat
afid watching folks shucking
out the booty at the dock. I'm
looking forward to going out
and collecting myself the
makings of a scallop pizza!
Just try it. My wife, Gina, slid
a couple of scallop pizzas
across the dinning room table
late (operative word being too
late) in the season last year
which were so extraordinarily
delicious that I had to excuse
my lack of manners, indecent
oinks and refrain from poach-
ing to get more scallop pizza..
Scallops are so mild in fla-


vor they can be used in a vari-
ety of recipes and make any
dish special. But you have to
shuck them to eat them. One
answer: Pay someone to do it
for you. Charge: $6/lb. The
women in Steinhatchee do a
wonderful, professional job to
provide you with the sweetest
little bay scallop you'll ever
put in your mouth. Answer
two: Gang tackle the shucking
detail but be aware someone
will blurt out "It was fun col-
lecting them but this part ain't
no fun." Answer to
that...'Shutup and shuck!'
Take time, to notice what
your invited guests are doing
during the day. You will no-
tice some 'guest' throwing
themselves into the collecting
(fun), fading away from the
cleaning (work), and being
heavily evolved in the eating
(fun). Cancel the lazy peo-
ple's invite ticket to scallop
world and enjoy the friends
that participated in the whole
adventure with you. Wear a T-
shirt: "If you don't shuck you
stick" to get the point across.
I don't like to think of the
number of times I thought this
as someone meandered off:
"I could use a shower, too."
Or... "It's not rocket science to
clean a scallop or fish. What


better time to teach you than
now? Oh, I'm sorry, I took
what you said about wanting
to know how to do it sincere-
ly, now I realize it was just
verbal diarrhea said to make
you feel good about shirking
your responsibility off on me
and others so you can go to
comfort yourself while the rest
of us apparent grunts are ful-
filling the cleaning detail until
we can get cleaned up our-
selves. I guess you're special.
We're not. Am I bitter? No.
I just realized there is more to
shuck off than the scallop.
Pick people to go with that
will 'share' the entire day.
Many hands make... less
work.
Anyway, scalloping can be
so much fun. A fantastic day
on the water for all that take
the .time to do it. My good-
ness, the things you see when
you stick your head below wa-
ter line. You. come up with-a
handful of scallops with a
head full of questions. What
was that? Plant or animal? I
determined a relationship be-
tween this and that. Did you
see...? ILtouched... It touched
me. You'll be touched with
the handy work of God if you
think while you stick your
head below water. Our grass


flats are a covered canvas dis-
playing a private art work far
more vivid and interactive
than any museum, global.
Grouper fishing in July is
great! We've caught keeper
grouper in 40' to 102' this
week. The bait... frozen bait is
just as good as anything. I've
h*ad a tank full of live of pin-
fish and guys were just pin-
ning dead baits to whack
grouper as fast as we could
handle the up keep. It's a hard
bottom play land for the mo-
bile fishermen. With the sea
being calm during the sum-
mer, it is a good time to avoid
the anchor and do some float
time. Why work? Just fish.

4. Omega 3 fats decrease dry eye symptoms. Dry eye syndrome
is a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye.
According to a recent study conducted by BWH and Schepens Eye
Research Institute (SERI), women who consumed at least five
servings of tuna (which contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids)
weekly, reduced their dry eye symptoms by 68 percent, compared with
women who ateonly one serving of tuna weekly. Decreased dry eye
symptoms appear related.to the presence of omega 3 fatty acids
commonly found in certain fish and sources such as nuts. The study
also found that women with the highest levels of omega 3 fatty acids in
their diet had 20 .percent fewer dry eye symptoms than women who
consumed the least amount of omega 3 fatty acids. Other fatty acid
sources include: cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, and trout.
5. Vitamins E and C slow cataract growth. Results from the
Nurses' Health Study conducted at the Tufts University USDA Human
Nutrition Research Center on Aging, demonstrate that
supplementation with vitamins E and C may offer significant protection
against the development of cataracts. Vitamin E sources include:
sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachio nuts,
avocados, peanuts, and nut products such as oils and butters, eggs
(one egg can provide almost 6 percent of the recommended daily
amounts of vitamin E), greens, tomatoes, asparagus, and sweet
potatoes. Sources of vitamin C include: fruits such as guava, oranges,
grapefruit, melons, grapes, berries, and fruit juices; vegetables such as
peppers, brussel sprouts, potatoes, broccoli, beans, onions, tomatoes,
and squash; meat such as liver and organ meats; and some seafood
and fish.
6. Choose carrots for healthier vision. Carrots contain beta-
carotene, a pre-cursor for making vitamin A. This form of vitamin A is
needed to. boost the immune system function and also to improve
vision. Carrots also contain carotenoids, which are found in their
orange pigrhent. Some carotenoids like zeaxanthin and lutein are
important for preventing cataracts and macular'degeneration. Besides
carrots, lutein and zeaxanthin sources include: spinach, kale and
collard greens.
7. Eggs,aid eye health. A study conducted by the Tufts University
Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston found that
extra lutein can be obtained from eggs. The study tracked and
compared the amount of lutein absorbed by 10 subjects who -
consumed nutritional supplements, spinach, and enriched eggs from
chickens fed diets high in lutein. The results showed that enriched eggs
increased the level of lutein in the subjects on average two times
greater..than spinach,.and.threetimrr.s grea.ej than.lutein..supp.lerents.
or lutein ester supplements.
The bottom line? If you want to keep your eyes in tip-top shape, in
general, you should eat plenty of green, leafy vegetables, two servings
of fish per week, some nuts and some yellow or orange fruits and
vegetables. That's a recommendation from AllAboutVision.com, an
online resource for eye health and vision correction options.

Eating properly is not only good for your overall health; it's also
good for your eyes, especially as you age. It's a known fact that as you
grow older, your metabolism slows down and your body begins to
deteriorate at a faster pace. You notice that your skin isn't as firm and
tight as it used to be and you may lose muscle mass. Another
symptom of aging can be diminishing eyesight, such as macular
degeneration (AMD) the leading cause of vision loss and blindness
in Americans aged 65 and older, according to the.American Dietetic
Association. (AMD is a degenerative condition of the macula, which is
the part of the retina responsible for the sharp, central.vision needed
to read or drive.)
But just as you eat nutritious foods to stay healthy, and exercise to
keep fit and slow down the aging process, you can also consume
certain vitamins and nutrients that researchers have found to nourish
and protect the health of your eyes.
Following is a breakdown of some of those findings.
1. Antioxidants and zinc reduce the risk of AMD. High levels of
antioxidants (substances that inhibit oxidation and can guard the body
from the damaging effects of free radicals) and zinc play-a role 'in
reducing the risk of developing AMD and its associated vision loss,
according to the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a major
clinical trial sponsored by the Natiqnal Eye Institute. Sources of zinc
include: oysters, hamburgers, wheat, and nuts.
2. Fruits reduce your risk of AMD. A study from the Channing
Laboratory at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's
Hospital (BWH) indicates that people who eat a daily diet that includes
several servings of fruit can reduce their risk of developing macular
degeneration as seniors. The study looked at a group of men and
women age 50 and older. It compared their intake of antioxidant,
vitamins and carotenoids (like beta carotene) as well as fruits and.
vegetables, and how these elements relate to the development of
macular degeneration. Researchers discovered that people who
consumed three or more servings of fruit per day over a period of 12
to 18 years reduced their risk of developing macular degeneration by
more than 30 percent, compared to people who ate 1.5 servings per
day or fewer.
3. Vitamin A reduces night blindness. A diet lacking in vitamin A
can-cause night blindness, a deterioration of light sensitive cells (rods)
essential for visionin low lighting. This deficiency also can extensively
damage the eye's cornea to create total blindness. Research
conrjuctedby.oQpbthalmologist Alfred Sommer, M.D., linked a.yitamin .
'A fretinol) deficiency to the very high prevalence of' night blindness in,
children of developing counties such as India and Bangladesh.
Sommer found that night blindness decreased by one-third in children
who received vitamin A. Sources of vitamin A include: cod liver oil,
liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Note: while'
vitamin A supplementation cani be beneficial, it can also be toxic if
taken at abnormally high dosages. Consult with a doctor before using.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!
Many residents .who lose power may turn t

emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans,
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also .create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.


:::" When operating a generator:


* Always operate a qeneraior in accordanc ,hl-.ih
manulaclurer's guidr'lin.:, and inSirul,:risn

*To avoid CO poisoning, never use agenerator indoors or in
an ched garages Ornly perai s rie .ienErai':.r o.udours in a
well-ventiiated, divy ae irrerm air r inliks 1 I ire hr.:.n- i

*To avoid electrocution, plugl inrdvidu., appiiarces rinio the
generator using'heavy duty, .'.uldii.orr 3ile:d co[ij wh ia wire
gauge adequate for the appliance load.

* If connecting into the house wiring is necessary on a ,
temporary basis, homes must have a transfer switch
installed by a licersEd electrician. A transfer switch allows


your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
as opposed to power normally supplied by SVEC. Transfer,
switches isolate the circuits supplied by the generator and
prevent backfeeding inadvertently energizing circuits in both
systems.

- Backfeeding can most commonly dccur when a generator is
connected directly to the electric panel.or circuit in a home.
Feeding power back into the utility system during an outage will
energize the transformer serving the house and could pose a
serious threat'to line and service and tree crews working to
restore power in the area who may not know they are working
with an energized line.


If you desire to obtain a transfer switch for residential
use the cooperative has approved a meter socket
based transfer switch by GENERLINK model.number
MA23-N or S. Member would purchase the transfer
switch through GENERLINK (1-800-886-3837 or
www.globalpowerproducts.com) and contact the
cooperative to schedule installation at no charge.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS JUNE 28-29, 2006, PAGE 11C


Students make


Students on summer break often
have more leisure time and less adult
supervision than they do during the
school year. Consequently, they will
choose many of their own meals and
snacks. If these snacks are low in nu-
trition and fiber-and high in salt, sug-
ar, and fats-they can contribute to the
growing problem of childhood obesi-


For the second year, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services conducted its "Xtreme
Cuisine Cooking School," teaching
Florida students how. to make their
own healthy snacks using "Fresh from
Florida" fruits and vegetables, whole
grains, lean meats, and other nourish-
ing recipe ingredients. Classes were
held during April and May-tradition-
ally the last months of the school
year-at middle schools in Naples, Mi-
ami, Orlando and Tallahassee.
Department Chef Tom Thomas, a
30-year foodservice veteran, taught
students the, basics of food prepara-
tion and cooking procedures .while
creating fruit parfaits, whole-wheat'
pizzas, and other easy-to-prepare
snacks.
A sponsorship from the F.lorida De-
partment of Cirrus pro\ ided "Xtreme
Cuisine" curriculum outlining nutri-
tion basics. Students learned ho%% the
Florida fruit and,vegetables used in
these recipes pio\vide vitamins and
minerals that can help prevent heart
disease and other obesity-related ill-
,nesses i In: addition;, students:.learned&;
fihe dangers cu. ued, by'h~'kessivie
amounts of salt, sugar, and fats in their
diet, and how fiber could eliminate
their desire for high-calorie, low-nu-,
trition snack foods. Each "Xtreme
Cuisine" curriculum packet contained
four original recipes iith nutritional
breakdowns
"Older children are frequently mak-
ingmany of their own food choices,".
said Florida Agriculture Conmmission-
er Charle, H. Bronson. "We want
these to be healthy. choices that will.
last these ioung Floridians through
adulthood."
By the end of each session, students
had learned how many calories thev
need each da\,. Each student received
a copy of the "'Fresh from Florida
Kids' Kitchen" cookbook, which out-
lines many cooking basics. Students
also. iecei\ ed "Xtreme Cuisine" cer-
tificates attesting to their skill in the
preparation of healthy snacks.
