$50,000 grant will help economically

empower Florida' domestic violence survivors


Florida Coalition against domestic violence
receives one of ten grants given nationwide


The Allstate Foundation
awarded $50,000 grant to
the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence
that will help extend its sup-
port for the' economic em-
powerment of domestic vio-
lence survivors in Florida.
The grant was one of ten an-
nounced by Allstate's Presi-
dent and chief Operating
Officer Thomas J. Wilson at
The Allstate Foundation's
second-annual Economic


Empowerment Conference
for domestic violence advo-
cates in Washington D.C.
"We are proud to double
our financial support to
help people affected by do-
mestic violence," said Wil-
son. "It is our hope that The
Allstate Foundation's grants
continue to broaden finan-
cial opportunities for do-
mestic violence survivors,
so that they can prepare for
futures of safety and eco-


nomic independence."
The grant will be used to
help fund STEPS: Support,
Training and Education for
Personal Success, originally
initiated in 1999 by Aid to
Victims of Domestic Abuse
as a welfare diversion pro-
gram. STEPS will use the
grant to expand its services
to include credit counseling,
tax education, skill building
and mentoring.
The grants and confer-
ence are just two compo-
nents of The Allstate Foun-
dation's national Domestic
Violence Program, which'
has provided more than $2
million in grants to national
and state domestic violence
organizations since 2005. In
alliance with the National
Network to End Domestic
Violence (NNEDV) Fund
and its affiliated state coali-
tions. The Allstate Founda-


tion Domestic Violence Pro-
gram provides knowledge
.and skills particularly
those related to financial se-
curity and economic em-
powerment to support sur-
vivors:of domestic violence.
"Economic control is one
of the most effective ways
an abuser prevents a sur-
vivor from walking away,"
said Sue Else, President of
NNEDV. "This is why the
Allstate Foundation Domes-
tic Violence Program is so
important it provides criti-
cal resources and financial
support to create innovative
programs that directly help
survivors *face the tougS
economic challenges of b-e
ginning a new life, free froi
violence."
Domestic violence sur-
vivors often face significant
financial obstacles stem-
ming from their abuse.

Florida voters will face
six proposed amendments
to the state constitution.
Amendment 7 will benefit
veterans: A vote Yes is war-
ranted.

TITLE: Permanently Dis-
abled Veterans' Discount
on Homestead Ad Valorem
Tax.

PROPOSED BY: The
Florida Legislature

BALLOT WORDING:
Proposing an amendment.
to the State Constitfition to
provide a discount from the
amount of ,ad valorem tax
on the homestead of a par-
tially or totally permanent-
ly disabled veteran who is'


veterans ser


age 65 or older who was a
Florida resident at the time
of entering military service,
whose disability was com-
bat-related, and who was
honorably discharged; to
specify the percentage of
the discount as equal to the
percentage of veteran's per-
manent service-connected
disability; to specify qualifi-
cation requirements for the
discount; to authorize the
Legislature to waive the an-
nual application require-
ment in subsequent years
by general law; and to spec-
ify that the provision takes
effect December 7, 2006, is
self-executing, and does not
require implementing legis-
lation.

WHAT IT MEANS: The-
amendment would allow
disabled veterans 65 or old-
er to qualify for a reduction
in property taxes. Florida
law already allows some
tax exemptions for disabled
veterans. This amendment
would allow veterans to re-
ceive an exemption worth
the.rate of their disability -
mieaing if a person is 70
percent disabled, they


Floridians reminded to bring

identification when voting


Florida law requires photo

and signature identification
at the polling place

As the November 7 General Election
approaches, Floridians should familiarize
themselves with the state's elections re-
quirements. Voters must present a photo
and signature identification at their
polling place to participate in any elec-
tion in Florida. If the photo identification
presented does not have the voter's sig-
nature, an additional piece of identifica-
tion with the voter's signature is re-
quired. Citizens who do not furnish the
required identification at the polling
place can onl\ voter~t' a provisional bal-
lot ..
Identification has ben required to vote
in Florida since 1977. In '198 the Florida


Legislature expanded the ID requirement
to include both a photo and signature.
Any combination of the following identi-
fications may be used to satisfy the signa-
ture and photo requirement:
Florida driver's license;
Florida identification card issued by
the Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles;
'United States passport;
SEmployee badge or identification;
SBuyer's club identification;
Debit or credit card;
Military identification;..
Student identification;
SRetirement center identification;

tion;

t


vice officer
would receive a 70 percent
discount on property taxes.
The measure is limited to
those veterans who were
Florida residents at the time
they entered military ser-
vice, have a combat-related
disability and were honor-
ably discharged. State econ-
omists estimate it would
cost cities and counties $20
million a year.

PRO: The amendment
would honor the service
given by veterans of World
War II and other conflicts
by granting them a signifi-
cant break on their taxes. It
would enable those on
fixed incomes to be able to
pay the continued increase
in property taxes due to es-
calating property values.

SCON: While the scope of
the amendment is limited
now, it may have to be
broadened later on. The re-
quirement that a disabled
veteran be a Florida resi-
dent at the time of military
service could be challenged
as violating the equal pro-
tection clause of the U.S.
Constitution.

n concluding my memories about the Phillips
family, I credit J. C., or Geebie as he was called,
with being my first employer. He was an industri-
ous young man'and he obtained peanuts and
boiled them in the wash pot in the back yard. He would
package those boiled peanuts in one pound paper bags
and they would be ready to peddle around Mayo on Sat-
urday. I was given the privilege of peddling those
peanuts from a little box slung around my neck. I earned
a handsome commission of 1 penny for each 10 cent
pack I sold.
This was on Saturday when everyone was in town and
we would easily sell all of the peanuts he had boiled, re-
turning to that back yard several times for more of that
delicious product. The "free show" was fertile ground for
selling peanuts as folks would gather there while wait-
ing for it to become dark enough to begin showing
those old movies.




Geebie left Mayo somewhere down the line and I have
only seen him once when he came back to Mayo for
homecoming festivities at the high school. On that visit
he purchased a ticket on a shotgun to be raffled off and
he won it. That would have been sometime during the
late 50's I expect.
Preston, or Prez as he was known to his friends, grad-
uated ahead of me, 1949 I believe. I had been around
Prez quite a lot during those years. He and I were both
members of Troop 615, BSA. Once when we were camp-'
ing at Dead man's Bay, Prez and I were walking along
the road near where we were camped, which was the
Cooey's Cabins in the edge of Dead Man's Bay. Prez
looked down at the right moment to spot a revolver that
was just barely visible in the mud and trash and he
reached down and retrieved it. It has been there so long
that it was fairly well rusted out of usefulness and the
handle had rotted off. I don't remember if there were
bullets in it or not. I wonder if he still has that old piece,
of rust, or. if he would remember that event.
A little later on, Troop 615 made the trek into the Oke-
fenokee Swamp out of Fargo, Georgia. This would have
been around 1945 and it was not the tourist attraction
that is it now. This was quite an experience and I have

vivid recollections of some of the events on that expedi-
tion. We were to camp on Billie's Island and were trans-
ported there by boat, courtesy of the Rangers who
worked there. The small boats were powered by a small
outboard motor that carried 4 or 5 including the ranger
and it sat low in the water. Some of the passage was
through narrow pathways through the swamp, barely
wide enough for the boats to pass and alligators were
frequently seen as they sunned themselves on logs ahd
tussocks as we passed nearby.
Other times we would follow the old pilings that had
supported the railroads that once traversed the swamp,
stripping it of it's growth of pine and cypress timber in a

bygone era. This area was not frequented by others
during this time we were graciously permitted this privi-
lege by the park officials. At times we would pass by a
spot of practically clear water which indicated that a

spring was there. Other times the water was so black
from all the tannic acid that light did not penetrate it. As
we visited the spot known as "trembling earth". I was as-
tonished at how the ground would shake under foot and
the tall trees would sway. This was actually a floating is-
land or tussock and was only a few feet thick.
As we'penetrated deeper into this vast wilderness we
were constantly aware of the abundance of wildlife and
birds that made.their home there.
One important function of this expedition into the Oke-
fenokeewas to initiate two members of Troop 615 into
the order of the Arrow. Part of the procedure was that


the inductees must spend the
night away from the camp with
nothing more than a blanket,
and on Billie's Island, that event "-
loomed as quite foreboding to us
all, and for good reason. The
night before these two were to
set out, some boys had caught a
nice mess of fish and had left
them in the boat while they went
to the camp area for something
to put the fish in after they had
been cleaned. upon their return
they found that wild cats were O.A. Winib
eating the fish and the startled
animals jumped and ran, reportedly chasing
the boys as they ran at full speed


urn, Jr.


through the camp shouting the alarm although the ani-
mals probably ran in the opposite direction.
Nothing further developed on that episode but sleep
was scare that night and the fire was kept burning until
quite late.
During the night those animal sounds could be heard
*which we attributed to everything from gators to bears
and we had actually seen bear spoors as identified by the
officers. Late the next afternoon, Preston and Paul Wayne
Rowell braced up and ventured off to the designated
spot a mile or so from the camp with only a blanket for
the overnight experience. They straggled into camp the
next morning, bright and early, looking a little haggard
but apparently no.worse off than when they had left.....

Public use of Suwannee River


Water Management properties


Linda Smith
Suwannee River Water
Management District's pub-
lic news coordinator, Ed-
win McCook, spoke to Ro-
tarians on public use of
District properties, at the
Rotary luncheon meeting
on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
McCook said that SR-
WMD lands are classified
in several categories: fea-'
tured sites, which actually
has someone that unlocks
the gates to the entrance of
the property and closes it
in the evening, general sites
which have some type of
public road access, and
primitive sites which have
no development, which
means,no vehicle accessibil-
ity.
McCook said that even
though many of these en-
trances have a locked gate
or cable across the road, it
doesn't mean that it is not
available to the public. Ac-
cording to McCook this
simply means you cannot
drive a vehicle inside the
area, but it is still accessible
through walking, or horse-
back riding etc. He said a
person can also obtain "spe-
cial use authorization" by
contacting their office. One .
of the reasons given for the
gate or cable lock-out is to
keep folks from dumping
or throwing their trash in
these areas, which has been
a problem in the past.
McCook said that SR-
WMD lands offer many
recreational opportunities
to the public such.as bicy-
cling, horseback riding, ca-
noeing. fishing, hiking, bird
watching, swimming,
caniping and hinting.'He

For those interested in
hunting, McCook said SR-
.IWMDI has around 99,000
acres that are open for


hunting and these areas
are managed by Florida
Wildlife Commission. Also
he added that normally
SRWMD lands are not'gen-
erally opento ATV's (All
terrain-vehicle), but the
Mallory Swamp area does
have a 38-mile trail which
opens in April for six
months of trail riding on
ATV's.
McCook also spoke of
the Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail project
which is in the process of
building cabins, making
*. i -..: *1


improvements, etc. along
the river, for public use.
He said there is already 5
nice cabins completed and
available at Stephen Foster
Suwannee River State
Park, and cabins are
planned for Blue Springs
in Lafayette County as well
as other camping sites at
many locations up and
down the river, in the near
future.

Convenient heart disease and diabetes blood tests


now offered in Florida by Life Line


Life Line Screening, the
nation's leading provider
of mobile preventive health
screenings, is now offering
two simple blood tests to
detect the risk of heart dis-
ease and diabetes in the
state of Florida.'
"The complications of
these diseases constitute
the number one cause of
death in the United States
in both genders," said An-
drew Manganaro, M.D.,
medial director for Life
Line Screening. "In addi-
tion, the risk factors, in-
cluding diabetes, hyperten-
sion, obesity, lack of regu-
lar exercise, elevated cho-
lesterol and tobacco abuse,
among others, are extreme-
ly common in the continen-
tal United States."'
To make these important
screenings more conve-
nient, Life Line Screening
has added complete lipid
panel and blood glucose
tests to its existing screen-
ings for stroke, vascular
disease, and osteoporosis.
Both tests are conducted
w\ith just a single finger-
stick -ample that uses only
a few drops of blood and
lab accurate results are
prove ided immediately. The
same equipment i used
throughout physician of-
fices, pharmacies and hos-
pitals nationw-ide. The new
screening tests include: 1.
Complete Lipid Panel: This
comprehensive test mea-
sures tour important levels
- total cholesterol, LDL or
"bad cholesterol," HDL or
'good cholesterol," and
triglycerides. High levels of
cholesterol, particularly
LDL. contribute to the for-
mation of plaque on the
artery w\ calls. Plaque is a
major contributor to stroke
risk and carotid artery dis-
ease. It also can restrict the
flow of blood and o\ygen
to thelecirt '\\which can
cause a heart attack.:HDL
is the good kind of choles-
terol because it carries e\-


cess cholesterol away from
the arteries. A high HDL
level is protective against
cardiovascular disease.
A 10 percent decrease in
total blood cholesterol lev-
els can reduce the inci-
dence of heart disease by
as much as 30' percent.
Knowing your cholesterol
levels can help you and
your physician develop a
plan to prevent heart dis-
ease.
2. Glucose: Glucose is a
measurement of the blood
sugar level and is used to
determine a person's risk
of diabetes. Diabetes is a
disease in which the body
does not produce or prop-
erly use insulin the hor-
mone needed to convert
food into energy. Diabetes
is strongly linked with
stroke and heart disease.
A glucose screening will
indicate if a person has
"pre-diabetes,'! This occurs
when a person's blood glu-
cose levels are higher than
normal but not high
enough for a diagnosis of


Screening
diabetes. People with pre-
diabetes are at higher risk
of stroke and heart disease,
but they can delay or pre-
vent the onset of type-2 di-
abetes through lifestyle
changes that reduce the
glucose levels.
Life Line Screening's
stroke, and vascular dis-
ease screenings involve the
use of ultrasound technolo-
gy, and scan for potential
health problems related to:
blocked arteries which can
lead to a stroke, aortic
aneurysms, peripheral ar-
terial disease and osteo-
pordsis, participants can
receive all 6 tests for $179.
Life Line Screening was
established in 1993, and
has since become the na-
tion's leading provider of
vascular screenings. Over
75 ultrasound teams are on
staff to travel to your local
community, bringing the
screenings to you.
To locate a screening in
your area, please contact

partment at 1-877-237-1354.

Deer season presenting unique

challenges to area drivers


Each year, car collisions
with deer account for more
than 150 human and nearly
one and a half million deer .
fatalities. October through
December is the high sea-
son for the crashes, since it
is a time for both wander-
ing deer and. shortened
daylight hours.
More collisions with a
deer occur during this time
of year when deer are mat-
ing and migrating. "Drivers
need to be particularly cau-
tious with the season's
shortened daylight and
deer foraging near road-
sides. It's a very dangerous
combination cautioned
Ray Palermo, director of
Public relations for national
.car insurer, Response In- ,
surance "To compound it,
more drivers are on the
road at dawn and dusk, the
very time of day when deer
are most active."
An adult deer can weight
more than 200 pounds and
a car striking one can not
only result in the death of

the deer, but also incur, on
average, two thousand dol-
lars in damage to the vehi-
cle. Palermo suggested a
few basic"cautions for dri-
Vyers. .
SScan a wide swath of
the roadside. Slo' d:cown
when approaching a deer
standing near the side of a
road and be prepared. If
startled, the deer can bolt
onto the roadway and into'
your path. If necessary,
honk your horn and flash
your lights to try to scare it
away.
Be alert for more deer
than you may see at that
moment. Where there is
one deer, there are often
more nearby.
In many instances, it is
best not to swerve around
the deer-since the deer may
move in the same direction.
You may also inadvertently
hit another vehicle, or go
off onto a dangerous shoul-
der. Unless certain of those
road factors, it is often best
to simply brake and contin-
ue in your lane of traffic.
Be particularly careful
,at dawn and dusk and
when driving either over a
hill or around a curve,
where visibility is limited.
Use your high beams to
give you a greater area of
visibility and allow you to
see the deer's eyes sooner.
*. Take deer crossing
signs seriously, particularly
those installed specifically
for this time of year. Be
particularly cautious in
wooded and agricultural
areas where there is little
distance between the road
and the woods.

Deer = Damage, is avail-

McIntyre sets two school records


Jefferson County came to Mayo this past
Friday night looking to put themselves in
position for a district title. Both the Tigers
and Hornets came into the game with
high voltage passing attacks, but both de-
fenses were keyed in on stopping the aeri-
al attacks, and did just that with the Hor-
nets only able to complete three passes for
26 yards, while Jefferson would connect
on 7 completions, but only for 44 yards.
The difference would be that the Hornets '
Junior quarterback Chad Hempstead -
would remain poised under the pressure
to avoid any interceptions, while the Hor-
nets secondary would get interceptions by
Sergio Perez, James Dees and Tamaal Reid
and nice break ups by Charles Hodge and .
Aaron Gresham. Throw in a couple of
sacks by Gresham, Powe and Dees along ,' :
with steady pressure by Powe, and the
Tigers passing attack proved to be ineffec-
tive.
The players of this game had to be the'
offensive line led by Seniors Marty Crotts i'"
and Colby Blue, and great blocking by all -
the Hornets which led to a rushing attack Mclntyre was
that produced 394 yards, 341 of those by through the lin
Eric McIntyre, shattering the school running the Ti!
record. .He would score 3 touchdowns, Tigersteam ac
one of which was also a school record and
broke the Tigers back. With the Hornets
pinned deep, at their own six yard line and facing.a third
and long, McIntyre would race 94 yards giving the Hor-
nets a 28-0 advantage and the celebration had begun in
the first half.
Game Summary
A Gresham and Dees sack was followed by a Gresham
and Kyle Pearson tackle for loss... Joey Watson recovered
a fumble at the Tigei 29. Gresham leaped frog the de-
fender, after a pass reception to the Tigers nine with
Nlclnty ie going in on fourth down on a one yard run. 7-
0 5:15.
Defensive play by Gresham, Kris Pearson, Watson and
Powe created losses to force a punt. Mclnt\ re w-ould
break for 61 yards and finished the drive on a 6 yard TD
run. 13-0 1:08
Dees would take advantage of a Gresham deflection
for an interception for great field position, but a turnover
at the Tigers 5 ended the drive. A key sack by Powe and
an assist to Gresham for a loss to the Tigers one yard line
resulted in a Reid punt return to the Tigers 9. Skelly
would hunker down behind the line and pushed. the ;
Ti e edzone for a 21-0I lad with

very appreciative of the line blocking(Crotts on the block here), as he Was coming

Powe.
Perez would make a great pick of an option pass. The
Tigers would get their defensive shots in, but McIntyre
would make a tremendous third down burst for 94 yards
and a 28-0 lead.
Reid would make a key interception at the Mayo 7 be-
fore the Tigers would finally hit paydirt. for a 28-6 half-
time score after Gresham blocked the PAT.

of the second half with,a 12 play dir\e that included a
punt snap of fourth down to McIntyre for a key first
down. Skelly would add a 17 yard run, while McIntyre
had runs of 17 and 21 before a 8 yard TD pass to Reid for
a 35-6,lead with 2:51 remaining.
Following a Tigers touchdown that saw Reid intercept

run by McIntyre, and a third down scram-
ble by Hempstead before Skelly would
find paydirt for a 42-12 advantage on a
two yard plunge.
Great defensive play by Powe and Gre-
sham resulted in a safety. Mayo would be
forced to punt, but a Jeff Miara fumble re-
covery set up the stage for a little role re-
versal. Rosalio had made 5-6 of his PAT
attempts on the night, but would cramp
up after a beautiful 15 yard run behind yet
another masterful blocking job by the Hor-
nets. Of course, the Hornets would do the
unusual which means bringing in Skelly
for the PAT. He connected for the final 51-
12 win and the second straight district ti-
tle. The win would mark the 19th straight
regular season triumph.
Region 1 update
It is unknown who the first round play-
off opponent will be with Liberty, Port St
Joe and West Gadsen all being possibili-
ties. Wewahitcka was eliminated this past
week falling to Freeport 3-0. West Gadsen
plays Port St Joe this week. Should Liber-
ty win, they are in. A loss would require a
Port St Joe loss for a runnerup finish. A
West Gadsen win sends Liberty to Mayo,
and Hawthorne to Gadsen. If Port St Joe,
and Liberty both win as expected, Port St
Joe comes to Mayo, while Liberty hosts


Baldwin
The homecoming opponent this week is the Baldwin
Indians. Baldwin will'be coming into the game with a 4-
4 mark, and fresh off a 52-24 win over Bishop Snyder.
The Indians have been struggling through numerous in-
juries. but will come to Mayo with a formidable threat to
the Hornets win streak.
The Indianswill bring a .'ery powerful running attack
.that accumulated 430 yards against Snyder. The Indians
are not the type of team that will attack on the deep aeri-
al strike being primarily a rushing power, but are very
effective with the short passing game with very capable
tight ends that can make big plays.

Shands, 93.7 K-Country 7


secure big names for



benefit concert series


When Country Music Award-winning,'
Grammy-nominated artist Brad Paisley takes
the stage in Gainesville next spring, he will
be doing more than crooning "The World"
and other hit songs. He will be raising money
for kids in need. Paisley, along with singer,
songwriter Phil Vassar, has committed to per-
forming in the first annual 93.7 K COUN-
TRY Jamboree Hopes & Dreams Benefit
Concert for Shands Children's Hospitals.
93.7 K COUNTRY and Shands HealthCare
have partnered to bring the artists to the
Alachua County Fairgrounds on Saturday,
March 31, 2007. During the daylong event,


15,000 concertgoers will be treated to perfor-
mances from a total of five acts, three of
which will be announced at a later date.
"All of us at 93.7 K COUNTRY are very
excited about being part of this. We feel it
will be the biggest single-day music event in
the history of North Central Florida," said
93.7 K COUNTRY General Manager Jim
Robertson. "I think attendees will find the
ticket value is incredible, with the lineup pro-
viding one hit song after another."
All proceeds from the concert will benefit
Shands Children's Hospitals. Shands Health-
Care Director of Development Michael Jes-


sup said they hope to raise more
than $400,000 to enhance medical
programs that provide world-class
care for children who rely on Shands.
,"Shands has a long tradition of providing
hope through outstanding pediatric health-
care," Jessup said. "We are recognized as a
leader in areas such as pediatric lung disease,
diabetes, cardiology, cancer, neurology, ge-
netics and organ transplantation. Revenues
from this concert will allow Shands to contin-
ue to offer a better quality of life to sick chil-
dren and their families."
The concert is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.


evening. Tickets will be available for pur-
chase through Ticketmaster beginning Satur-
day, Dec. 2, at 10 a.m. Advance-purchase
tickets will be $55. Tickets purchased at the
door will cost $70.
More information about the 93.7 K COUN-
TRY Jamboree is available on-line at

Fall fishing is fast, furious and FUN!


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters

The Joy of Fishing: Revisited
Last month I wrote about.
the slump in the grouper fish-
ery and some alternatives to
making a better day offshore
fishing.
Well, now I'm happy to re-
port, the grouper fishing has
vastly improved. I've had the
best grouper fishing of 2006
occur since the beginning of
October. It is difficult to ex-
press how happy it makes me.
Over the past couple of weeks
we have been bringing back a
dozen or so keeper grouper
per trip. Bdth red and gag:
-grouper are being taken on
live pinfish and cut bait. Pin-
fish has.been the most consis-
tent bait. We are also bringing
in some king fish and cobia.
Huge pink mouth grunts
(Florida snapper) :are being
added in to make a good look-
ing box of fish. If you haven't
had a plate of fresh fried pink
mouth grunt lately, do your-
self a: favor and take an hour
out of your offshore day to
catch a mess of them over any
hard bottom area. They are de-
licious.
Fishing can be hot one day
and cold the next but when
fishing is sub par for a long,
period it can be .depressing;
especially, if you happen' to
fish for living.
For a, while even pink
mouth grunts weren't overly
cooperative. 1 was feeling like

tives I wrote about. Some-
times the techniques worked
out as planned. Most of the
time I'd find myself telling
folks what had happened in
the past w hen I did the same
trick and that same spot. Peo-.
ple were smiling at the end of
the day but I felt. their .disap-
pointmnditbehind the smile. I
was far from happy with the
outcome myself. Thankfully,
most of the people had fished
with me during better times. A
couple of times I overheard,
"If he would have taken us to
water at this depth and fished.
with. that bait, we'd have
caught fish."
They, didn't realize I had
., been there and done that earli-
er and t turned out to be a
wasted time. Nly lack luster'
catches weren't due tolack of
effort or wanting to savemon-
ey on gas or not trying here,

it. was; I was having trouble

what just happened and in-

Evan and Curtis were both
battling Bonita and loving
every moment.
I joined in the fun. It is
amazing how far and how.fast
the fish would run with our
baits. We would fight: them

again, again and again until it
became ridiculous. When I fi-
nally got my fish in I took a

I was having fun

catching some fish, and I en-
joyed watching Curtis artfully

watching young Esan get

i Charles impressed me

or nothing about.
Charles was hold-'

intently.
"What's going
1' on?" I asked.
"I '%e been getting
.,. a bite" he replied. "I
: better check my bait"
he said.
We could see the tat-
tered lady fish coming
up through the water. As
it neared the surface an
eight-foot hammer head
shark came after it. It
boiled away a foot. or little
more from the boat. It was so
close, I stepped back.
"What was it, what was it?"
Curtis questioned, while fight-
ing Bonita 'nmiTber umpteen.
'Charles and Il ere explaining
as Charles let the bait back
down, and .I was hurriedly
twisting a.wire leader out:of
No. 9 wire and cutting.a Boni-
ta in half. I literally tossed the
'bait in, the water by hand. I
was hoping ... Charles said,
"He's after it," referring to his'
bait. In a second, he struck.
The thick grouper pole arched'
under the strain and line
peeled off A"firm drag. "Evan!
Put on a fighting belt and
.come here son," Charles de-
manded..
I reeled in my gear. took the
bait off and stowed it away
neat. Evan is thin compared to
the rest of us; shall we say plus
sized gentlemen. The transfer
of the pole came with a jerk-


ing and pulling action.
"Keep him in the boat!"
Charles was right there be-
sides his son. I cleared the
clutter from the front of the
boat. Curtis was wrapped up
in the final minutes of his
Bonita number umpteen and
one. The shark may pull Evan
all the way around the boat in
the mean time.
When Curtis got his fish in,
I turned the motors on to keep
the fight off the stem quarters.
Evan would pump and grind
:to gain a few yards of line
only to have more line pull off
Sto his chagrin.
Curtis took over the coach-
ing for his nephew. His advice
was on track and helpful to
Evan. who was under duress.
'* It was after seven in the
evening. The sun was falling
out of the sky: The backdrop
was beautiful but darkness
was soon be upon us. I called
into an\ radio in Steinhatchee.
"Mule Kicker" responded. I
told him the situation and
asked if he could call my wife
to let her know we were fine
but would more than likely be
in after dark. He was happy to
make the call for me. I was
happy he was there.,
Evan was holding up well
after the first 15 minutes, but
he.was under a constant hea\y
load.
Another 10 minutes passed.
The shark cruised just under
the surface from starboard to
port. It was as if he was check-
ing out what he was fighting.
The shark dove, taking line at
will. The rod shuttered up and
down violently in the next
minute. Evan stumbled back-
Swards. The taunt line had part-
ed. Without a steel leader the
fight lasted longer than we all
expected. Evan had fought his
largest shark and fought it
ever very well.
It was a 20 minute ride to
the first channel marker. We
re-lived th[e fight play by play.
We ~'ere in' the river during
the last glimmer'of liglif. We
finished cleaning fish around
9 p.m. It was decided the fish
fry was best:suited for the next
evening.
I came in the house, "How
was your day?.' my wife,
Gina, asked.
"I found what I didn't know
I was looking for, the joy of
fishing" I said.
Thanks for taking your time
to read this. Take care of your-
self and your tackle.

Tips on buying boating attire


Want to enjoy boating all year
round? No problem if you are
equipped with the proper attire,
say the. boating experts ,at.
Mansafe.com, an online boating
resource. Marisafe suggests
choosing layering garments that
are easy to adjust as conditions
change.
According to boaterslife.com,
another online boating resource,
you should never wear cotton,
particularly as the base layer,
which is for wicking away mois-
ture. Other parts of boating attire
Include the mid layer, the insulat-
ing layer and the outer weather-
proof layer. Here are some of
their tips on choosing the proper
boating attire, based on types of
sailing.
SAFETY AND WARMTH
Buoyancy aids and life jack-
ets: Today, buoyancy aids and life
jackets are covered by stnct slan-
dards. They must have specified


amounts of buoyancy, fit well, be
tough and most definitely stay on
when you fall in the water. Most
,dinghy sailors, want as much,free:,
dom of movement and as little
bulk as possible, using one of two
types: a conventional zipped vest
or a pull-over-the-head type. The
zipped vest is easier to put on but
is slightly longer than the pull-
over, which seems to be the most
popular. Freedom of movement is
improved by using as many
pieces of closed cell foam as
possible so that the jacket bends
around the contours of the body.
S Drysuits: Available. in front-
and back-zip versions. The back-
zip version is less bulky across
the middle, and it is lighter and
easier to move around 'in. The
main argument against them is
that help is sometimes needed to
do the zip correctly. Zipping up
the last half inch on either a front
or back zip suit is essential. A

drysuit is literally sealed at every
opening and risk of condensation
could not be greater.
Wetsuits: Available in a vari-
ety of weights and styles. Look
for suits using different thickness-
es of neoprene in different areas,
depending on whether warmth or
flexibility is the main criteria. Also
look for blind stitching that is wa-
terproof, and flat seaming that
will not press against the body.
The big difference between a


wetsuit and drysuit is that with a
drysuit, the warmth and protec-
tion comes by staying totally dry,
whether,in the water or out. A
wetsuit works on the principle
that even though wet, body heat
will not escape through neo-
prene. Any water in the suit will
warm up. Overall, a wetsuit on its
own may be lighter and more
flexible, if you don't mind the ini-
tial cold feeling when falling in the
water.

Knowing when an aging relative needs help


For many people, independence is something they fall in love with the
very first time they experience it. Whether it's a teenager left home
alone for the first time or a college student finally leaving the nest, that
first taste of independence can be a wonderful thing, something most.
people want to maintain the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, as people
grow older, independence can often be a detriment to their well being,
leaving their loved ones in a difficult position with respect to their care.
Deciding to put a parent or an elderly relative in a care facility is
never an easy decision, as chances are that person will want to remain
independent. You may also feel guilty about the decision wondering if '
the facility can provide the best care.
To help you make the correct call, here are some things to consider,
courtesy ofAARP,, that should help you rest easier with whatever you
decide:
Physical health. This is typically one of the more decisive factors in
whether or not a nursing home is the right move for your loved one.
Chronic disease, such as diabetes or arthritis, can greatly limit an
elderly person's independence, sometimes making it impossible for
them to live on their own. If you cannot care for them adequately
enough, a nursing home or:another facility might be your only option.
In addition, heart disease, stroke or cancer can also rob loved ones of
their independence, meaning a nursing home might be the best option
for sufferers of these diseases as well.
*Mental health. Typically, Alzheimer's is a chief concern for
relatives of the elderly. If your loved one appears disoriented most of
the time or has regular feelings of confusion, professional help might be
the best decision. Also, bouts with depression or anxiety can be difficult
to deal with if you're not trained to do so. While these conditions do not
mandate you put your loved one in a home, it may be necessary if
someone camnot be available round-the-clock to provide care.
SMedication Uise. Pay close attention to your loved one's medication
routine. If he's forgetting to take his medication or taking too much, or

even.failing to remember if he .
took it or not, independence is no
longer a legitimate option. Too
little or too much medication can
prove to be a fatal mistake.


elderly people can get up and go like they used to, exhibiting difficulty
with some of.the more routine tasks a day presents could be a sign that
help is necessary. Struggles with bathing, dressing or even using the
toilet indicate a dwindling ability to live independently. Similarly, such
struggles might leave you worried about your loved one's ability to
cook and clean for themselves, which could lead to tragedy. Similar to
other areas of concern, this should be looked at subjectively. If your
loved one still has his mental health but might be struggling with some
of the aforementioned tasks, perhaps having him move in with a
younger relative or hiring someone to help him can help you avoid the
nursing-home scenario. If no such support system is realistic, a home
could be your best move.
Home/community safety. Unfortunately, the elderly are often
targets of crime, and are therefore vulnerable. If your loved one's
neighborhood is not safe, moving them, be it to a home or a new place,
is a good idea. Also, if your loved one's home requires upkeep that they
are not able to physically do anymore, it could indicate they're not safe
living alone.
Support systems. No one should live in isolation, especially the
elderly. If your loved one has a strong support system of family and
friends that he regularly interacts with, that could be a sign that he's
capable of continuing to live independently. While those friends and
family should contact your loved one regularly and stop in to help out
whenever possible, if your loved one is maintaining an active social life
he could be all right staying where he is.
- Finances. Finances often play a significant role in what to do with
an elderly loved one. If your loved one is capable of living on what he
has and isn't exhibiting any significant problems such as forgetting to
pay bills or regularly paying them late, finance concerns should provide
no reason to move him. However, if your loved one cannot live on his
current income or might have problems doing so down the road,
consider, your options. One thing to note is that nursing home prices are
high, so consulting a financial advisor to help you is a good road to
take.
While these areas are a good place to start, they should not dictate
what you do nor should you ignore other possible areas of concern. To
learn more about dealing with the elderly, visit the AARPWeb site at
