Zoning Board addresses heated issue

After much debate and discussion, new proposed

restaurant will be able to serve alcohol


w -.

Members of the Zoning Board hear community statements about whether a proposed restaurant should be allowed to serve al-
cohol. Left to right: Angela Ball, attorney; Troney Lewis, chairman; Redd Walker, member; Joe Walker, member; and, Bill Put-
nel, member. Pnoio Ira Mikell


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
Wally Powell went be-
fore the Zoning Board on
Monday, Nov. 27, to seek
an exception to serve alco-
holic beverages along with
meals at the restaurant he
and his wife, '"icky, plan
to open in the building to
the right of New Begin-
nings Church on main
street in Mayo. The meet-
ing was held in the county'
commissioners meeting
room at 7 p.m.
According to Powell, the
restaurant, which has not
been named yet, will be
family-friendlv. Patrons of
legal age will have the op-
tion to order alcoholic bev-
erages with meals. It will


also have a game room.
Many residents in oppo-
sition to the alcoholic bev-
erage issue were present at
the meeting. Among those
present was Wayne Hud-
son, pastor of New Begin-
nings Church, who was
the first to speak.
Hudson, in a written
statement, which he read,
to the board, pleaded with
them on behalf of his con-
gregation as well as others
to deny the special excep-
tion. He stated that the
thought of having the chil-
dren play in the game
room while the parents en-
joyed a meal with an alco-
holic beverage made no
sense. Hudson cited other
issues such as safety and
parking.
Powell was represented


by his attorney who ex-
plained to the board why
his client wants to estab-
lish his business and de-
tailed the promises he has
made if the special excep-
tion is approved.
According to Powell's
attorney, Powell has
promised not to have any
illuminated signs on the
walls and windows adver-
tising alcohol; no refer-
ences to alcohol in the
name of his restaurant
such as the word tavern;
and, will remain closed on
Sunday and will not serve
any alcoholic beverages af-
ter 6 p.m. on Wednesdays,
therefore, not be in conflict
with worship services held
at New Beginnings
Church.
As the meeting pro-

about the restaurant be-

House

Angel Tree


The Manna House An-
gel Tree is set up each
year at Thriftway with
paper angels on it. On
the back of each angel is
listed a male or female
(no names) child with
their age, and sometimes
their Christmas wishes,
These are underprivi-
leged children from the
surrounding area.
If you go by and
choose an angel you
may contribute money
in an envelope and take
it to Thriftway and it
will be spent on a child,
or you can purchase a
gift and attach the angel
to your gift and take it
back to a Thriftway em-
ployee.
If you prefer it can be
picked up. Just call 294-
4146 or 294-1294. The
angels need to be back
at the store, or picked
up by no later than
Dec. 21.

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
Water tables are contin-
uing to fall at a slow, but
steady rate throughout
the area, especially in
Lafayette County. In re-
sponse to the dry weath-
er, insufficient rain, and a
drought still lingering, the
Suwannee River Water
Management District has
issued a Phase I Water
Shortage Advisory for the


counties of Alachua, Bak-
er, Bradford, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton,
Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy,
Madison, Putnam, Suwan-
nee, Taylor, and Union.
This advisory took ef-
fect on Thursday, Nov.
16, and will remain in
place until SRWMD be-
lieves it is no longer need-
ed. According to SR-
WMD, residents are not
forced to abide by the ad-
visory, but are encour-
aged to become involved
and work together to help
conserve water during
this difficult time. "No

Charitable organiza-

this year by soliciting do-

Some organizations are
well-known and are rep-

But, there are charities
out there, who, according
to Charles Bronson, Flori-

'credit hours to be consid-
ered for membership.
Phi Theta Kappa outgo-

For more information,
news@nfcc.edu or 850/973-

Just a note to remind you
about the Manna House
Angel Tree. This tree is set
up each year at Thriftway
with paper angels on it. On
the back of each angel is
listed a male or female (no
names) child with their age,
and sometimes their Christ-
mas wishes. These are un-
derprivileged children
from the surrounding area.
If you go by and choose
an angel you may con-
tribute money in an enve-


lope and take it to Thrift-
way and it will be spent on
a child, or you can purchase
a gift and attach the angel
to your gift and take it back
to a Thriftway employee.
If you prefer I can pick it
up from you, just call 294-
4146 work or phone 294-
1294 home. These angels
need to be back at the store,
or picked up by me no later
than December 21.
God will bless you,
Gloria Johnson

After a Shriner has
crossed the snds,
He gets involved, has
busy hands,
It's not all just fun and
games you see,
He's a part of the world's
greatest philanthropy.

Sure there's lots of glitter
and flash
From the top of his fez to
his bright red sash.
Shriners parade right
downtown
With horses, bands, cal-
liopes and clowns.

Shriners grin at the
sound of bands oriental
And they like the look of
things ornamental,
There's a smile under
that fez in the crowd
And some of the antics
make you laugh out loud.

But Shrinedom is more
than a football game,
Or hosting a circus in the
Shriner's name.
Behind all this is a lesson
learned,
It's caring for kids who
are crippled or burned.

At orthopedic hospitals
and burns institutes,
Treatment is free for
these recruits.
Without regard to race or
creed,
Shriners treat them ac-
cording to need.

They're called "Nobles"
those guys in red hats,
And what they do is just
that.'
They'rea valuable part of
society,
And what they do is no-
ble, indeed.

"Why does a Shriner
smile?" you ask
Look at how he meets the
task.

day is what it costs
To help the kids with
what they lost.

What makes a Shriner
smile?
It's a bright-eyed kid
who's bound to beguile,
It's watching a step and
then one more
By a kid with crutches
who couldn't walk before.

So if you want to see a
Shriner grin,
Just talk about crippled
children to him,
Ask how he helps a
burned or crippled kid,
And how they were treat-
ed 'cause of what he did.

Hallelujah Festival at Airline Baptist
The sixth annual Hallelujah Festival was held at Air-
line Baptist Church on Wednesday, Oct.'25. Nearly
2000 people attended the festival and enjoyed the fes- ,
tivities.
After signing in at the welcome tables, people pro-
ceeded down the row of 26 trunk-r-treats where chil-
dren received a wide assortment of candy, snow-cones,
cotton candy, and a gospel tract.
Six blow-up games were enjoyed by all ages and
there was a variety of skill games.included for children.
Some of those included apple-bobbing, go fish, throw
the football, and ring the stake. The most popular game
of the evening was the one that was rewarded with a
goldfish as the prize. Children also enjoyed sand art .
and face painting.
Adults were able to participate in the cake walk and
pine straw maze. One of the most popular events for
everyone was the hayride which meandered through
the woods behind the church.
Live gospel.music was provided by the Lighthouse
Christian Center and Airline Baptist Church. The
"Pumpkin Patch Parable" was told four times through-
out the evening to share the gospel message. Everyone
enjoyed a hotdog dinner complete with chips and a
snack cake. The crowd ate about 1,350 hot dogs during
the course of the evening.
A special thanks is.given to the churches who sup-
ported and helped: with the evening; Alton Church of
God, Assembly of God, Brewer Lake Baptist Church,
Lighthouse Christian Center, Mayo Baptist Church,
Mayo Methodist Church, Midway Baptist church, New
Beginnings Fellowship and Riverside Baptist Church.
Another special thanks goes to the Lafayette County -. :

'Lafayette soer begins a new season IIi, .


Lafayette soccer begins a new season


Believe, dream, work hard, and achieve
The Lafayette High School soccer team' has begun the new season with great expecta-
tions. The group is developing consistency, and as we are already entering the third
week of the season we are seeing alliances built and bonds made among new players


Students: Don't believe


these college


financial aid myths


College application season is in full
swing. As students live in fear of a re-
jection letter, parents worry more about
how they'll afford the tuition when
their child is accepted.
College is expensive but tuition fears
Shouldn't overshadow an otherwise ex-
citing time in a teen's life. The key is not
to believe the financial myths surround-
ing the price of a higher education.
i Myth #1: You can't afford college
SMany parents and students see the tu-
ition price, cost of living in the forms
and the textbook fees and say there is
no way they can afford college. The
truth is most college students require
some form of financial aid. In fact, near-.
ly 75 percent of 2006 high school gradu-
ates who took the ACT reported that
they need help to pay for college. Don't
ignore college because of its "sticker
price" Students can receive a combina-
tion of grants, loans, scholarships or
work study jobs to help reduce the cost.
Myth #2: You have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qualify
for financial aid
Financial aid comes in many forms
grants and scholarships that you don't
have to repay, and loans which you do
have to repay. There is need-based aid
for students of lower income families,
and merit-based aid for students who.
excel in athletics, music, community
service and many other areas. Financial
aid sources are as varied too, -the feder-
al government, the college or university
itself, a parent's employer 'and others.
When students take the time to explore


all the possibilities, they will be sur-
prised at what offers they may receive.
Myth #3 You can get more scholar-
ships by paying someone to search for
you.
Scholarship scams are every where.
.Beware of any group or individual that
guarantees a scholarship if you pay a
fee. There are many good and FREE
scholarship sources on the Interet.
Check out www.fastweb.com or
\wwy.finaid.org for more information.
Myth #4 My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.:
Most schools require students to fill out
the FAFSA, the Free application for
Federal Student Aid, in order to qualify
for need-based aid. The form, available
on-line at www.fafsa.ed.go-, asks for
information similar to what you need
for your income taxes; After submitting
the FAFSA, students receive a report
that shows how much the government
expects you to pay for toward your
child's education. If you aren't ready to
file yet, visit www.act.org/fane/ to get
.,an estimate of your expected family
contribution.
Myth #5: you can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial aid.
Most financial aid is doled out on a
first-come first-served basis. No one
should wait to get started. Looking for
financial aid probably isn't a teen's idea
of a good time, but itis better than
graduating from college in debt.


and those returning from last season. This is a sign that this season will be exciting as
the group moves from individualistic thinking to group thinking.
These young men have played recreational soccer before, and as individuals they
have their unique skills. This season, however, our goal is to put all these skills togeth-
er to develop teamwork mentality in order to play competitively.
All LHS soccer players went through two intensive weeks of conditioning and try-
outs. Twenty-nine players signed up and twenty-seven remained at the end of the two
weeks. To me, this is an example of endurance and commitment to make this a good
season.
It is great when a group of young men can come together with one goal in mind and
work as one to achieve that goal. I am proud of these young men for taking the risk to
make a difference and set a standard for the players, of the future. These young men
play with pride and strength. am very satisfied with the group I.have the honor to
mentor this year.
I t is not easy, it takes hard work, and it can be painful at times, but it is rewarding at
-the end. These are important lessons in life that these young men are learning through
this discipline.


The Lafayette Soccer team is improving week after week. The players are developing
confidence and the desire to take their game to the next level. A year ago, when search-
ing for teams with whom to compete, some schools turned us down because they felt
we were not at their competitive level. Well, this season this has changed a bit because
we have played very competitively against the schools we have encountered so far.
We hate a young group coming up with great potential. It will take consistency, pa-
ience, and endurance to see the results. Several of the young players are beginning to
show their potential, and we want to give them the support and provide them.the op-
.portunity to gain the confidence required to compete at their best level.


The smile on the play-
er's faces is a good expres-
sion of having done the

job well and enjoying the
benefits of hard work. The
Hornets truly gave a les-


son of discipline, style, and
strength to their opponent,
Fort White. They couldn't
hold back David Cedillo as
he surprised them time af-
ter time with his swift
moves and powerful shots.
David was responsible for
the three goals scored dur-
ing that game.
Josue Licea, our captain,
did a magnificent job
keeping his net safe and
guiding the attack from
the backfield. Josue was,in
charge of shutting the door
for the Fort White attack-
ers who were frustrated
for being unable to score.
Hector Negrete did an ex-
dellent job keeping the Fort
White defenders busy.
They simply could not
keep up with his speed.
Alberto Lopez played an
outstanding game as a de-
fender. His quick and clas-
sic moves confused Fort
White's forwards. He also
assisted the midfielders
with his deep passes.
Corey Wright was fantastic
in keeping the pressure
and marking Fort White's
swift forward. Corey did
not give advantages, and
his running speed
throughout the game was
impressive.

forts. Some may misrep-
resent their fundraising
intentions or solicit for
phony causes. With this
in mind, it's important to
know who you're donat-
ing your money to and
where it's going," Bron-
son said.
There are various ways
in which you can make
sure your donations are
going to the right charity
and used properly. For
example, when you re-
ceive a phone call from a
telemarketer represent-
ing a charity, Bronson ad-
vises that you should
never make a donation
and not give out any per-
sonal,: information over
the phone such. as your
social security, credit
card, savings account,
and checking account
numbers until you know
who you are dealing
with.
Bronson suggests that
you should always do a
thorough, research of the
organization by asking
multiple questions. Ex-
amples include request-
ing information about the
organization and a copy
of their financial report to
be sent to you in the mail;


what percentage of your
contribution goes to fund
their business expenses
and how much goes to
the people you are help-
ing; and, their full busi-
ness name, phone num-
ber, and address.
.Deceptive names and
advertising are two addi-
tional tricks that fake
charities employ to swin-
dle'you out of your hard-
earned savings.. Bronson
warns that just because a
charity has an impressive
sounding name does not
always mean that it is le-
gitimate, "Many organi-
zations have names simi-
lar to well-known chari-
ties and .organizations,"
Bronson said. To know
whether an organization
behind the'name is real,
Brorison has set up an on-
line resource called "Gift
Givers' Guide," where
you can type in a name
and see whether the char-
ity in Florida that you
want to give to is proper-
ly registered. To access
.the information,'go to:
http:/ /'ww.800helpfla.c
om.
Bronson and his con-
sumer watch team hopes
these suggestions will
help you make the right
decision and donate to. a

agers are calling on all
residential, commercial,
agricultural, and industri-
al users to voluntarily re-
duce water consumption
through conservation '
measures," Cindy John-
son, Communications Co-
ordinator for SRWMD
stated.
In order to comply with
the advisory, SR WlVID
suggests that you do
things such as reduce the
amount of water you use
to irrigate your lawn;
avoid watering between
the hours of 10 a.m. and 4
p.m.; plant trees, plants,,
arid grasses that are


drought-resistant and do
not require much water-
ing; while you are brush-
ing your teeth, shaving,
or washing dishes, do not
let the water run continu-
ally, for doing so wastes
water; replace all-leaky
faucets, pipes, and toilets;
and, avoid using the toi-
let as, a waste basket at all
times.

Treating back pain a difficult, evolving task


No one likes shoveling snow. While the eyes of children light up at the sight of
snowfall, for men and women with driveways and sidewalks, that snowfall just means it's
time to dust off the snow shovel and get to work. Unfortunately, such a reality can often to
lead to aches and pains, as many a-veteran snow shove eller can willingly attest. What's
important for back pain sufferers to know is they are certainly not alone. According to the
American Academy of Orthopaedic Suegeons, treating back pain costs nearly $100 billion
annually.
Such a figure is likely significantly higher than most people might expect. However, that
figure is indicative of the prevalence of back pain, whether it's afflicting people on an
interim basis thanks to a driveway full of snow or if the situation is chronic. The good
thing about so many people suffering from back pain is that much is being done to combat
it, offering those suffering from mild to more advanced stages a variety of options for
relieving their pain.
For those suffering from mild back pain as a result of too much shovelling or lifting
something too heavy, over-the-counter pain relievers have proven to help many times.
Ibuprophen, aspirin and acetaminophin are all available and have proven helpful for those
with just minor back pain. Minor back pain sufferers can also use a heating pad or a cold
bag, alone or in combination with over-the-counter drugs, to help relieve most, if not all,'
of the pain.
For those suffering from more intense and lasting back pain, however,, a couple of tablets
of aspirin and a heating pad will-likely not do the trick. This is not,to say your cause is.
helpless, but it will just take more effort, and money, to treat your condition.
Unfortunately, back pain is chiefly characterized by variability, making a doctor's
diagnosis with'respect to the effects of treatment and length of symptoms nowhere near as
concrete as diagnoses for other ailments might be. It's important to keep in mind for any
back pain sufferers that studies released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and
Quality (AHRQ) within the last 10 years have shown that even a month.after treatment, 33
percent of sufferers have reported continuing pain while about a quarter of those surveyed
reported substantial limitations on their activities. This suggests that even the most
effective treannents \\ill not eradicate pain entire.
Perhaps the one treatment to be most wary of is spinal fusion surgery. Historically,
surgery was largely:a condition-specific option not even considered for the majority of
back pain sufferers. Ho\\e\er. in recent years spinal surgeries have increased greatly,
which is not necessarily a good thing, as many ha\ e pointed out that longterm effects of
surgery seem to be no more beneficial than other, less expense\ e treatments. This was first
pointed out in a 2001 S\edish study that showed tremendous benefits in the first two years


after surgery, but no lasting effects or differences when compared to patients who did not
have surgery. Soon thereafter, other studies offered similar results, including a 2003
Norwegian study that suggested aggressive regimens combined with cognitive behavior
therapy proved eqaully as effective at reducing pain as did fusion surgeries. Again, this is
important to note due to the escalating costs of spinal fusion surgeries and their apparently
minimallongterm effectiveness.
While American surgeons might scoff at the results of these studies, it's important to
consider these same surgeons do not make money by suggesting alternatives to surgery.
The best way to approach potential back surgery might be a return to the days when spinal
surgeries were condition-specific and not a uniform answer for everyone. Sufferers of
sciatica, for instance, where intense pain shoots down the leg as a result of a spinal injury,
will often find surgery to be their most viable option. Still, while the surgery-first mentality
shifted greatly in favor of surgeries over the last several years, other options have now
come into play that should decrease the prevalence of spinal surgeries.
One evolving branch of treating back pain is known as Spinal Arthroplasty, an option
that offers non-fusion techniques to treating' back pain. The goal of spinal arthroplasty is to
restore or replace degenerative spinal joints through the use of minimally invasive
technology. While this branch is still in its infant stages, for those suffering from chronic
back pain it should come as some solace, as spinal arthroplasty is being geared toward
reducing pain via avenues other than costly spinal fusion surgeries.
SStill, as the Norwegian study suggested in 2003, exercise might be the best option. At
first glance, the concept of exercise when suffering lower back pain might seem
incomprehensible..But too much rest only worsens back pain. Such is the reason most
exercise regimens for backpain sufferers are combined with cognitive behavioral therapy
aimed at re-programming one's brain into being less sensitive to pain. This theory suggests
back pain is not only physical, but neurological as well, essentially saying acute back pain
causes a person's central nervous system to become hyperactive as a means to combatting
pain. This, as supporters of the exercise and behavior therapy suggest, can be treated
through reprogramming that will gradually allow sufferers to feel less pain as they exercise
more and become less sensitive to pain. All the while, treatments such as accupuncture,
physical therapy and even chiropractic treatments can be incorporated into the regimen.
It is important to keep in mind if you come inside this winter with an aching back thanks
to a driveway full of snow that treating your back pain does not have to be as expensive as
you might think. Thanks to a handful of recent studies and an apparent paradigm shift in
-the field of spinal medicine, numerous other options that offer eqaul, if not exceeding, .
beneifts and minimal costs are now available for back pain sufferers.

What's a fish worth?


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'll.
often times, have a price sign
stuck in the ice. right beside
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 pound.
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 fish-
ermen the worth of
a fish and he'll
tell you the

wholesale price and let you
know that price will be less by
the time he returns with his
catch. Furthermore, the de-
cline in wholesale fish price by
the pound appears to be direct-
ly 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 pol-
ished 63 foot sport fishing
wagon with a triple decker fly
bridge trimmed with numerous
gold international fishing
reels. He said come aboard. I
did after wiping my feet off on
the section of carpet on the
dock with the name of the ves-
sel embroidered on it. The
cockpit was a large dance floor
with twin fighting lounge
chairs port and starboard; em-
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 refrig-
erator for people food and
drink and a bait prep station
larger


than a drafting board table
with integrated tackle storage.
A stairwell leads to the prima-
ry helm station on the first tier
of the fly bridge. Gold plated
rod holders dot the brightwork.
A wrap around sofa framed the
captains' chair so guest could
have a great view of a bank of
electronics that would shame
NASA in the 1960's. 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 tor the upper station so the,
Lord could take the boat in.

sofa, chairs, table, hutch, gal-

detail that the grain of the

which was Italian rile en-
grained with seashells. Going
down and forward, we looked
at the queen sized guest quar-
ters and full sized bathroom.
The term 'head' doesn't apply
to me when the head was larg-
er than the bathroom I have in
my 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
because he was a little embar-
rassed he couldn't afford a
showcase bathroom like the
guest were privy to. or so I
made myself believe.
After the tour, he offered me
a drink and we chatted 'some
more. I found out it cost $800
'per month to have his, boat
float at that slip. That fee in-,
cludes two parking places next
to your slip. For $2,000 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 ques-
tion as to the worth of a fish.
Two hours of prep time on
Friday night, to make sure
most things are rigged and
ready, so as to minimize doing
much work in the darkness of
the early morning, meaning
that your Honey Durnpling
didn't get any 'quality time' af-
ter 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 num-
bi er. The bite is slow so ypu de+
cide to, take a snack break. yo.
ask your buddy. whose sole re7
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
few fish in the boat before
hunger and thirst force abort-
ing the fishing mission. After
the mental anguish of loading
the boat back on the trailer at
the public boat ramp. you find
yourself at the Quickie Gas
Food Mart and Laundry Em-,
porium 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 peppercorn
hotdog ($11). (Definttion:
Peppercorn hotdog- what you
assume to be a spicy all beef
link with a sprinkling of. pep-
percorns 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 ma-
chine). The party continues
once you pull back offn the


road, after you donating the
chewed and unchewed portion
of the "peppercorn 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 friendship 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 biting flies that
somehow heard what you did:
with their kinfolk at the
QGFM. 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 receive.the silent
treatment from your Honey
Dumpling. "Honey, do you
want me to cook that fish for
dinner tomorrow night?" No
answer and she's sitting across
the room staring at you
The worth of those fish? I
don'tbelieve math applies. The
joyful screams and antics of
child speed cranking grunts to
the boit at a rate that is only
curbed by the time it takes \ou
to remote the fish and put on
more bait. He is absorbed in
the moment like salt in water.
He is the best fishermen the
world has ever known. Just ask
him. The satisfaction of dig-
ging a big grouper off the bot-
tom 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 ac-
comphlshment. The' roller
coaster facial expression
brought on by a submarine
missile strike from a five foot
plus barracuda on atrolled tube
lure. The aenal dance brings si-
,lence till splash down. "Did
you see that?" "Somebody get
the rod!" The naked flicker of a
redfash 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 wrong.
Those four quick scenarios
arq 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 werei't.fish-
:ing. But we can't put a price on
that single redfish, or one grunt
out of a hundred or more, 'or
that dancing barracuda that
most people would just release
anyway. The .value of the fish
is in the moment.
The fish .retailer and com-
mercial fishermen are painfully
aware of the cost of getting
fish. They know the -value of
thatfish declines from the time
it is caught to the time it is sold.
They're simply trying to affLx a
dollar figure on the, fish.
They're in the fish business but
the value of the fish is in the
moment.
Sportfishermen look at fish a
bit different but there is a simi-
larity. The man with the 63,
footer spent millions to be in
the lap of luxury the moment
the fish struck.
The other fellow endured
hurdles and hardship to have a
brief moment with a few fish.
The scenarios depicted the
high moments with a fish but
neglected all the time neces-
sary to be there when it hap-
pened. Will the little boy re-
Smenmber dragging out of bed
'early. the hour long boat tide,
the captains' name, the bait
used, etc? Probably not. He
will remember the moment
with the fish for the rest of his
life.
What is- a fish not -worth?
Your life and those lives with
you! The same person that
counts calories, cholesterol,
and/or carbs, doesn't smoke or
drink, drives the speed limit,
;makes sure their child is in a
car safety seat, is worried when
a loved one is on the road late a
night, etc., can be the same per-
son that ignores the dark
clouds, turbulent seas, preven-
tative maintenance and 'expen-
sive' safety equipment and
takes a huge risk to catch a stu-
pid fish. If a little voice in your
head sounds off a warning
whisper; pay attention to it.
There is no fish swimming
worth endangering yourself
and others. If conditions aren't
right, go golfing. I do.

friends on weekends we had
to fight for family time. Now
they beg us to take the boat
out," said Sharon Poulton, a
mother of two. "We are now
doing our first family charter
in the spring."
Remember the journey, not
the destination, is the true re-
ward of sailing.

Though you might not know
what mal de mer is. chances
are strong you don't like it. A
French term for what is known
as seasickness or motion sick-
ness throughout most of North
America, mal de mer is an af-
fliction felt by many, challeng-
ing the human body's ability to
maintain its equilibrium at
sea.
Perhaps the worst thing
about seasickness, outside of
Sthe internal feelings of unrest,
Sis that many people take' to the
W* vter for their vacations. This
means part, if not all, of their
deserved downtime will be
spent feeling the ill,effects of a
condition they ne\ er saw com-
ing. If you're planning on hit-
ting the seas, whether it's for a
day trip or an extended vaca-
tion, understanding what sea-
sickness is and how you can
avoid it can be a good first
step for an enjoyable vacation.

%%WHAT IS SEASICKNESS?
Seasickness is the result of
your brain feeling confused.
When you begin to feel sea-
sickness, that's because your
. eyes, inner ears and much of
the rest of your body are send-
ing different signals to your
brain. Since your body and


brain are used to being on
land, the signals your body
typically sends to your brain
get garbled when the "ground"
beneath you. in this case a
body of water, begins to move.
The feeling of queasiness you
get is largely due to your inner
ear throwing off your sensory
perception. This is similar to
what happens on an airplane,
as that familiar ground you've
grown so accustomed to hav-
ing beneath you begins to
move further land further
away:, y'ur br~~aigrows con-
fused.
According to WebMD, an
online medical resource, as
your eyes send these messages
along to your brain assuring
the brain that everything is
stable, your inner ears are-do-'
ing quite the opposite, telling
the brain that nothing is stable
and that everything, including
your entire body, is moving.
These dueling perceptions
cause confusion for your
brain, leading to feelings of
queasiness.
Eventually, your brain will
begin to sort out these percep-
tions, and you should be able
to get your "sea legs" under
you and enjoy your trip. How-
ever, such sorting out can take


several days not a comforting
reality for those on a day trip
or an extended weekend.

WHY DO YOU GET
SEASICKNESS WHILE
OTHERS DON'T?
If you're out to sea and
everyone else seems to be en-
joying themselves, you might
wonder why it is you're feeling
seasickness and not them. Fear
not, however, as this is not be-
cause you're-any more or less
-iCiscepiible'than anyone else to
,'the'ill effects of seasickness: In
fact, if you begin to feel sick
the moment you get to sea.
that's an indicator that your in-
ner-ear balance is actually very
good.
Everyone is susceptible and
likely to feel a certain degree
of seasickness, and some of
those same people who seem
to be feeling no effects what-
soever could n fact be experi-
encing seasickness right in
front of your very eyes. A
common symptom of those
suffering from seasickness is
an immediate feeling of sleepi-
ness. Though some associate
nausea and vomiting with sea-
sickness (both of which are
side effects), sleepiness is a
common and more instanta-

neous side effect. Anyone who
prefers to take a nap the mo-
ment they get out to sea is
more than likely, suffering
through some seasickness, just
minus the stomach pains and
other less desirable side ef-
fects.
For others, the more nega-
tive side effects do rear their
ugly head, but they don't have
to. Even the most accom-
plished sailor can suffer from
seasickness, the difference is
:knowing how ~ eal ,h it.

HOW DOI HANDLE
SEASICKNESS?
The best way to combat sea-
sickness is to prepare yourself
mentally before you go out to
sea. Stay busy and keep your
mind occupied. Sitting in one
place while doing nothing will
only let your brain focus more
on the conflicting messages it's
receiving, allowing it to dwell
on the swaying motions of the
sea despite other messages
telling it otherwise.
Try to stay above-deck as
much as possible. This is par-
ticularly good if land is still in
sight and the horizon can be
seen. Focusing on the horizon
will give your brain a point of
reference, furthering its chance
of adjusting to the unstable en-
vironment. Focusing on the
horizon is easiest if you can
find a stable spot with minimal
sw saying on the deck of the
boat. If you do find a stable spot
Sand want to pass the time, read-
ing is not a good idea, as it will,
further the garbled messages
being sent from your eyes to the
brain, acting as a false sense of
stability. This is akin to how
many people cannot read while
in a moving. car. Your eyes
should be focusing on the hori-
zon, not words on a page.
While medications for sea-
sickness do exist, these need to
be taken before you get out to
sea to be effective taking
them at the oInset of symptoms
won't help. If you know you'll
be feeling seasick, another
method of prevention is to
choose the correct boat on
which to do your sailing. Those
with histories of motion sick-
ness, be it on a plane or in a car,
would be wise to avoid smaller
.vessels, as such environments
are similar to the closed-in con-
fines of plane cabins or auto-
mobiles. Many cruise ships
now have stabilizers that
negate much of the motion
most commonly associated
with seasickness. In .general,
the bigger the boat, the less
likely you are to'feel seasick-
ness, as bigger boats are less
likely to be -considerably
swayed by the movements of
the sea;

livestock, and wildlife. Donations are tax deductible under IRS Rule 501(c)(3).


Need Help to Spay



your Cat or Dog?


North Florida PAWS received a grant from "Florida Animal
Friends' Spay/Neuter License Plate Fund" to assist limited-
income households at $24,000 or less to spay their female
dogs and cats. For a small co-payment, we will pay the
entire cost of the surgery for eligible pet owners. Vouchers
to spay female dogs and cats at 8 weeks of age or older
will be issued as long as funds are available:


Applications are available on our website
www.notthfloridapaws.org and at participating
veterinarians' offices.


1. Huston Veterinary Clinic in Jasper
2. All Springs Veterinary Hospital in Wellborn
3. Suwannee Oaks Veterinary Clinic near Branford
4. Mayo Town & County Veterinary Clinic


PREVENTING the thousands of unwanted puppies and
kittens produced every year in our community is our first
priority. North Florida PAWS is in the process of building a
facility in Hamilton County which will house a Spay-Neuter
clinic, Dog Training Center, and small Adoption Center.
We hope to eventually support a Mobile Spay/Neuter Unit

to serve outlying areas.


Every family pet that is ADOPTED form an animal shelter
or rescue group reduces the number of unwanted animals.
SPAY-NEUTER and ADOPTION literally saves lives!

Florida receives $2.2 million for

OmniCare Medicaid Settlement


Attorney' General Charlie
Crist recently announced that"
Florida will recover $2.2 mil-
lion as part of a 43-state $49.5
million settlement with Omni-
Care, Inc. The agreement re-,
solves, allegations that the
company, was unlawfully
switching patients' prescrip-
tions in order to increase prof-
its at the expense of the Med-
icaid program.
A: national investigation,
led in part by Crist's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit, revealed
that OmniCare was allegedly
switching patients' prescrip-
tions to avoid federal price
ceilings. Price ceilings limit
the maximum amount of re-,
imbursement that the govern-
ment would pay for the most
commonly prescribed forms
of certain medications. Omni-
Care allegedly switched its
patients to medications that
did not have a reimbursement
limit in order to circumvent.
the government-mandated
price ceiling:
"Medicaid exists to help
the needy receive proper
health care"' said Crist., "If
everyone plays by the rules,
both patients and taxpayers
benefit."
The agreement deals specif-
ically with allegations that pa-
tients taking Ranitidine, a


popular antacid,-were unlaw-
fully switched from tablets to
capsules,, patients taking
Prozac capsules were unlaw-
fully switched t6 the generic
Fluoxetine tablet and patients
taking Buspirone tablets, a
popular medication to treat
anxiety, were switched to
Buspirone tablets of a differ-
ent dosage. The investigation
revealed no medically justifi-
ablereason for the sw itches
other than to inflate govern-
ment reimbursement and in-
crease OmniCare's profits.
As part of the settlement,
OmniCare has entered into a
Corporate Integrity Agree-
ment with the United States
Department of Health and
Human Services' Inspector
General. ,The agreement %will
ensure future Medicaid com-
pliance.
Crist's Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit assisted the
prosecution of thecase, along
with the Department of Jus-
tice, the U.S. Attorney for the
Northern District of Illinois.
and other state attorneys gen-
eral.

settlement with OmniCare is

The National Council on Ag-
ing (NCOA) has added a new
feature to its Web-based Bene-
fitsCheckUp service that could
assist several million people
who are eligible for but have
not enrolled in the Extra Help
benefit available through
Medicare's Prescription Drug
'Coverage (also known as Part
D). The new service, available
at www.benefitscheckup.org,
could be especially helpful to
the more than 630,000 who
were "deemed eligible" for the
Extra Help in 2006, but who
have recently lost their auto-
matic eligibility for this assis-
tance and must now,apply for
it.


"If someone with Medicare
has limited income and re-
sources, there's no reason not to
apply for the Extra Help," said
NCOA President and CEO
James Firman. "And, now, any-
one, anytime can use the Web
to speed up this process and
find out if they can also get ex-
tra income or other help with
paying for their medicines'or
health care expenses."
People must apply to the So-
cial. Security Administration
(SSA) first to find out if they
qualify for Extra Help. If some-
one qualifies, they can save on
average $3,700 a year since
Medicare's Extra Help will pay
their cost sharing and they will


ng for r
have no gap in coverage (the
donut hole). The deadline for
enrollment in a Medicare Part
D plan is Dec. 31.
People with Medicare, fami-
ly members or caregivers can
now use NCOA's Benefits
CheckUp '(found at Bene-
fitsCheckUp.org) to submit
their applications for Extra
Help electronically and receive
immediate confirmation that
SSA received the application.
In addition, without filling out
any other questionnaire, the
,BenefitsCheckUpRx-Extra
Help with Prescription Costs
feature will tell users if they
qualify for other federal.or state
benefits programs. These in-


medicare extra help


elude those programs that can
save them money on health
care (Medicare Savings Pro-
grams,and Medicaid), provide
extra income (Supplemental
Security Income), find other
prescription savings (State
Pharmacy Assistance. Pro-
grams) or help in paying for
food (Food Stamps).
"We added this new feature
to BenefitsCheckUp because
we received lots of requests
from individuals and feedback
from organizations involved in
finding and helping people with
Medicare' that some other tool
was needed," said NCOA's
Benefits Access Group Stuart
Senior Vice President Spector.


"The new BenefitsCheckUp
Extra Help feature is free, it's
fast and it is confidential."
NCOA, which led far-reaching
outreach and enrollment efforts&
during the initial Part D enroll-
ment period continues its work
in helping to find and enroll
those who may be eligible for
the Extra Help through its on-
going support of local Access
to Benefits Coalitions in 44 ar-
eas and the second phase of its
My Medicare Matters cam-
paign.
