will tend to fires that occur

Just a note to remind youi
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-
from the surrounding area.
If you go by and choose
an angel you may con-
tribute money in an enve-

Coach Jimmy Blankenshi ever seems to sit o
bench but" always stalking fie. sidelines when his_- ie
takes to the floor. However, his wandering does not seem
to be out of coricern for the way his team is playing this
year. After a 80-30 crushing of the Lady Bulldogs of Bell
last week, the Lady Hornet mentor said his team accom-
plished what they set out to do. '"We tried to disrupt what
they wanted to do," he said.
"They are a good free throw shooting team and they
shoot the three very well. I.thought we put them at the
free throw line too many times in the first half. But we did
a better job in the second half."
Lafayette placed four players in double figures as
Coach Blankenship went to his bench early in the game.
Junior Natalie Land led the scoring parade with her 28
points: Freshman Sunshine Reid and junior Sharhonda
Cherry added 12 points each. Lillie Prine and Kelsey Land
netted five points apiece with Taquelia Macklin and
Toquita Gandy added (bur points each.
Lafayette seemed a little slow at the onset of the game
but picked things up in scoring the first nine points of the
game. "We were a little, sloppy at the beginning," said
Coach Blankenship. "I thought that was because Bell
caught us a little off guard. But as the game progressed we
got into the flow of the game in the second quarter."

coach Jerry Hill's Lady Hornets. Hill played his bench
for most of the second half. Macklin had the game's lone

along with her trey. The Lady Hornets could only hit
two of nine free throws.

The Hornets soccer team stings once again
Submitted by David Palomino
The Lafayette Hornets
soccer team continues to
gain confidence as they
play very competitively.
Thursday, November 30,
the Hornets achieved yet
another victory (4-1), and
this time against the strong,
well armed Oak Hall Ea-
gles. The guys knew that
this game was extremely
important and that it re-
qufred concentration and
endurance, and they rose to
the occasion beautifully
and with great confidence.
Every line of the team
strictly followed the in-
structions given and main-
trained their focus on the
strategy as planned. From
the moment the referees
first whistle blew to begin
the game, the Hornets
swarmed all over the field
with pressure on Oak
Hall's fast, skillful players,
and they fiercely attacked
There has been a clear
and interesting transition
from the Hornet's last
year's team to this years.
Last season the group was
brand new, they were inex-
perienced playing together
as a team, and as a result
they acted with more ner-
vousness. This season,

Junior Hornet's squander
big lead, fall to Taylor Co.
by Ed Taylor
"We had our chances but we just could not put them
away," said Lafayette Hornets (0-3) junior varsity bas-
ketball coach Mike Harris after his team dropped a 35-
34 decision to Taylor County last week. For the final
6:31 in the game, the junior Hornets could not find the
basket as they went scoreless watching a 10 point
fourth quarter lead disappear. Lafayette's final basket
came at the 6:31 mark of the fourth period when Bell
drove the base line for a lay in. The basket gave the
Hornets their 10 point advantage.
Turnovers hurt the 'Hornets down the stretch and
: they let the Bulldogs beat on the, boards, something
they dominated in the first three-quarters of the garie'
Shot selection did not help Lafayette in their third loss
of the season. Force shots and blocking out on the
boards spelled defeat for the junior Hornets. With 1:44
to play in the game, Taylor County took the lead, 35-
34, on a three-point basket by King. The Bulldogs nev-
er relinquished the lead although the Hornets had
their chances down the stretch. Sellers three-point at-
tempt missed wide at the buzzer.
Lafayette, looking for their first win of the yet young
season, led by as many 15 points late in, the first half.
They took a 26-13 half time lead to the locker room. In
the third quarter, mental mistakes allowed Taylor
County to climb back into the game with a 7-2 run that
narrow the margin to 28-20. Lafayette led 32-24 after
the third period.
Bell and Sellers led the Hornets scoring with 12
points each. Bellamy, Gamer, Fleming and Perry had
four points each for Lafayette. Lashley finished with
two points. Baldwin led Taylor County with his 10
points, the only Bulldog in double figures. Jackson
added eight and King finished with six.
however, the players are
more seasoned and much
more confident. They walk
on the field with a winning
attitude. They know they
are winners before they en-
ter the field and that all that
is required from them is to
relax, work hard, and trust
their skills. Well they did
exactly that in this game,
and for the group of around
fifty fans supporting the
Oak Hall Eagles, the Hor-
nets gave an outstanding
demonstration of good be-
havior, discipline, good ball
handling, and team work.
Carlos Negrete led the
defensive line with an
strength, and support to the
other defenders. He was in-
spired, and as the leader for
the defensive line, he
showed, focus and alertness
to every single attack.
Kevin Whitney was out-
standing with his speed in
blocking the right forward
of Oak Hall, who continu-
ously ran and attempted to
cross the ball. Josue Licea
was an encourager
throughout the game. As
the captain of the team, this
young man is an inspiration
to watch defending his goal
while playing under pres-
sure. He constantly shouted
warnings to his players to

throughout the entire
Alec Longley conducted
the midfield with skill, seri-
ousness and strength. This
young man was able to cre-
atively slow the pace of the
game when Oak Hall at-
tempted to come back after
the Hornet's first goal
scored by David Cedillo.
Alec, Omar Rangel, Nerik
Licea, and Hector Negrete
kept the ball from the Ea-
gle's midfielders that, out of
frustration, began to grab
and kick the Hornets. What
they did not realize was
that the more they messed
with the Hornet's hive the
more aggressive they be-
came. And this is exactly
what happened. Hector be-
gan his fast running on the
right side and David Cedil-
lo did the same on the left.
These two skillful players
swapped sides over and
over, creating confusion
among the Eagles defend-
ers who failed in their at-
tempt to stop them. David
Cedillo scored two goals,
and Hector Negrete scored
two goals. The result was a
solid 4 to 1 victory against
the most feared team in the
district. This victory has
placed the Hornets in the
category of one of the most
challenging teams to beat.
We encourage the com-
munity to come to the Hor-
net's home games to show
support for these outstand-
ing young men who are ac-
complishing an amazing
task in only their second of-
Lady Hornets slips past Gainesville behind Alcazar
by Ed Taylor
It was a tired Lafayette
Lady Hornet basketball
team that took to the floor
against Gainesville High in
their second game in as
many nights. While the
Lady Hornets struggled of-
fensively, they turned up
the defense in recording a
42-36 win over the host
school. "Our defense played
great," said Lafayette coach
Jimmy Blankenship. "We
were tied and that caused
us to struggle some on of-
Marla Alc'azar picked up
the Lady Hornet's offense
late in the game drilling
three three-point baskets
and scoring 12 points.
Coach Blankenship said it
was Alcazar's best game of
the season. "She just played
a great game for us," he
said. "It was her shooting in
the third quarter that put
Gainesville's defense keyed
on the two leading scorers
for Lafayette, Natalie Land
and Sunshine Reid. While
the defense concentrated on
the duo, Alcazar picked up
the scoring slack. "Marla re-
ally stepped up for us

Land got the Lady Hor-
nets on the board at the
start with a free throw and
added a baseline jumper
and two other free throws
enroute to the 9-0 lead. Se-
nior Hannah Hudson got
the Lady Bulldogs on the
scoreboard at the 4:37
mark. But Lafayette went
on to lead 19-7 at the first
stop. Lafayette's defense
caused Bell to turn the ball
over 11 times in the open-
ing stanza against the
Lady Hornets defense -
something Coach Blanken-
ship was concerned about.
"Our movement on de-
fense was what concerned
me," he said. "We got into
foul trouble because we
were not moving our feet.
We were just reaching."
The Lady Hornets took a
50-22 lead late in the sec-
ond quarter on a three-
point basket by Kelsey
Land. Gandy's easy basket
on a nice assist from Prine
gave Lafayette a 52-24 lead
at the half. A 13-3 run net-
ted the Lady Hornets a 65-

Lafayette improved to 1-
0 in their district picking up
their first district win of the
season and improving to 6-
0 on the season overall. "It
was good to get this one
out of the way. This was an
important game for us and
I was pleased with the ef-
fort we got on defense,"
said Blakenship. The Lady
Hornet coach said he was
pleased that, his team
played hard in spite of the
Anna Tousignant led

Moore netted five. Amy

Food safety tips for fall and winter holidays
The arrival of the fall and
winter holiday season can
bring lots of fun, food and
feasting. But if food isn't
handled or prepared prop-
erly, food poisoning can re-
sult, and festivity can
quickly turn into calamity.
Food poisoning is caused
by toxins, created by bacte-
ria, which in most cases are
undetectable by sight,
smell or taste. Millions of
people are affected by food
poisoning each year.
It is important to practice
safe food handling and
throughout the year, but
the hectic holidays can pre-
sent even more possibilities
for food poisoning at home:
larger-than-usual meals of-
ten are being prepared;
new recipes and cooking
techniques may be tried;
buffets may be set out for
guests; large amounts of
leftovers may remain for
additional meals; food may
be transported from one
home to another, etc. t
Of special concern this
time of year is the increased
risk of food poisoning asso-
ciated with the popular
custom of stuffing turkeys
prior to cooking, a practice
not recommend by food
safety experts. With the po-
tential for food poisoning
.increased during the holi-
days, it is especially impor-
tant to remember safe food
handling and preparation
practices. Here are a few
Thaw turkey in
the refrigerator, not
on the counter top
Room temperature en-
courages the growth of bac-
teria, so defrost your turkey
in the refrigerator rather
than on the counter top. Al-
low one day of defrosting
for each five pounds of
turkey weight. You can
safely refrigerate the
thawed turkey another day
or two, but don't let the
juices drip on other foods.
To reduce defrosting time,
wrap the bird in a water-
proof plastic bag, and sub-
merge it in cold water. Cold
water slows the bacterial
growth that may occur in
the thawed outer portions
while the inner areas are
still thawing. Change the
water every 30 minutes.
Cook the stuffing separate
from the turkey
Stuffing placed inside an
uncooked turkey is suscep-
tible to bacterial growth,
and it is especially ill-ad-
vised to stuff an uncooked
turkey before storing it in
the refrigerator. Stuffing
cooked inside a turkey may
not get hot enough for any
dangerous bacteria in it to,
be killed, even if the turkey
itself is completely cooked
and has reached the recom-
mended internal tempera-
ture of 180 degrees Fahren-
heit. The tighter the turkey
is stuffed the greater the
risk, because the center is
even more insulated during
cooking from the bacteria-
killing heat. If cooked long
enough to kill the bacteria
in the stuffing, the turkey
will probably be drier than
most people like. So cook
serving slices before refrig-
Cooked, whole, stuffed
turkeys don't store safely in
the refrigerator. Remove
the stuffing from a turkey
cooked in advance and re-
frigerate it immediately.
Allow the turkey juices to
settle for 20 to 30 minutes,
then carve the bird into
serving slices, place them in
shallow containers, cover
and refrigerate. When it's
time to serve, reheat the
.slices and the stuffing in a
conventional or microwave
oven to an internal temper-
ature of at least 165 degrees
the stuffing separate from
the turkey. To increase fla-

Food quality possible, and \ve

Conlm and Walker are no

with more than 15 sears of

"We have found the repula-
tion of Domino's Pizza in
Live Oak varies widely de-
pending on who you ask and
we are working to be known
as the #1 pizza shop in the
area." they said.
The first step for the com-
pany was to hire in new man-
agement. The new owners
found this in veteran Domi-
no's Pizza manager Man
Ellefson. "Matt is one of the
best managers I have worked
w% ith in this business, and we
were unbelieably lucky to
find him locally," said Con-
lin.. 'He has dedicated himself
to the Domino's Pizza name
in the community and has set
personal goals to achieve this
We believe with his drive,
coupled with a great offering
of food at a great value, he
will meet those goals."
The new owners said they
have new staff they've trained

make Domino's the #1 pizza
shop in the area. "We have
tripled our delivery staff and
retrained our customer senrice
reps in an effort to get hot
fresh food to our customers'
doors in record time."
Ellefson has been instru-
mental in this effort and the
numbers reflect this. Deliver-
ies have nearly doubled since
Ellefson began managing
Domino's, which is a real tes-
tament to the fact that if
Domino's customers choose
to have their pizza delivered.
it will arrive hot and fresh
usually within 25-30 minutes.
When the new owners took
over, most of their customers
picked up their orders. That is
simply not the case any
longer. "We hae a staff of

has taken legal action
against a Central Florida
roofing company for violat-
ing Florida's "Do Not Call"
A lawsuit filed in Orange
County Circuit Court alleges
(that First Response Group
Inc., an Orlando company
-that does business as Florida
Roofing Contractors, made
at least 10 calls to Florida
residents on the state's "Do
Not Call" list earlier this
'year. In addition, the lawsuit
alleges that the company
used a pre-recorded message
in some of the calls, which is
a separate violation of state
"We have little tolerance
for companies that ignore
the 'Do not Call' law," Bron-
son said. "When a con-
sumer joins our program, he
or she is entitled to be
spared from telemarketing
The legal action seeks an
injunction prohibiting the
company from making any
future calls to residents on
the list and fines of up to
$10,000 for each of the calls
it made to prohibited phone
Bronson's department has
collected or obtained judg-
ments of more than $1.5
million against companies
that have called residents on
the list, and several such le-
gal actions are pending in
courts throughout the state.
The Commissioner en-
courages Floridians to join
the program, which prohibits
most commercial telemar-
keters from calling numbers
on the list. For more infor-
mation about the program,

Heather Mills was crowned Miss Rodeo
Florida 2007 at River Ranch in Okee-
chobee recently. Heather, 20, is the
daughter of Kenny and Lisa Mills, the big
sister to Ashley, and is the grand daughter
of Gene and Jean Johnson and Kenneth
and Myrna Mills, all of Live Oak.
Horses and rodeo have been a part of the
Mills family for a long time. Heather has
been riding since she was about 6 years
old. As a member of the Suwannee River
Riding Club in Branford, she was selected
as their Rodeo Queen in 1999. She also
competed in and won the Miss Teen
Rodeo Florida in 2000. Heather competed
as a member of the Florida High School
Rodeo Association during her junior and
senior year of high school. She is a char-
ter member of the Suwannee High School
Rodeo Team. Heather is currently attend-
ing the University of Florida majoring in
food resource economics.
The Miss Rodeo Florida competition
consisted of two horsemanship patterns, a
three minute speech about Florida and the
sport of rodeo, a personal interview, mod-
eling and extemporaneous questions.
Heather won the Miss Rodeo Florida
Horsemanship Award, the State Speech
Award, the Photogenic Award and the Per-
sonality Award. She received a $1,000
Scholarship, the Miss Rodeo Florida buck-

Glaucoma not just for the elderly
As the old saying goes, "seeing is believing." In the case of glaucoma,
perhaps the adage should be adjusted to say "seeing and feeling is
believing." Though nearly 3 million Americans suffer from glaucoma, the
Glaucoma Research Foundation reports that half of those cases go
unreported. Since most people with glaucoma still see and feel fine, they
believe they have no vision problems.
Glaucoma does not necessarily cause noticeable symptoms, at least not
ones most people would assume are not just a part of aging. But that does
not mean it's not doing damage, as glaucoma is the leading cause of
blindness in the United States, accounting for between 9 and 12 percent of
all blindness cases throughout the country. Because there are few or no
symptoms to indicate the presence of glaucoma, regular eye exams bring
on even greater importance. In addition, knowing what glaucoma is and
how it can affect everyday life can lend a greater sense of awareness
about this potentially damaging disease.
Types of Glaucoma
There are two types of glaucoma, each of which involves fluid and
pressure buildup on the eye.
Open Angle (or Wide Angle) Glaucoma: The more common type of
glaucoma, open angle glaucoma occurs when fluid cannot exit the eye
through the trabecular meshwork, or the drain of the eye. Essentially, the
eye's drainage canals become blocked, increasing inner eye pressure as
fluid cannot drain. When a person has open angle glaucoma, these
drainage canals are similar to a clogged sink. While the drain in the sink
itself is not clogged, the pipe going underneath the sink is. Similarly, the
openings to the drainage canals are fine, but are clogged further in.
Angle Closure Glaucoma: Angle closure glaucoma occurs when the
angle between the iris and the cornea (where a drainage channel for the
eye is located) is too narrow, resulting in poor drainage. This type of
glaucoma is far less common than open angle glaucoma, and often results
in sudden pressure build-up in the eye.
Who Is At Risk?
Glaucoma can occur in young adults, children and even infants, though
it's most common in adults over the age of 40. African-Americans are
more likely to get glaucoma and often do so at a younger age and with
more severe symptoms, such as a greater loss of vision than other victims.
Those who are also at a greater risk of glaucoma are:
People with a family history of glaucoma
People with poor vision
People taking any systemic corticosteroid medication, such as
Are There Any Symptoms?
In most instances, there are not noticeable symptoms, a frightening
thought when considering vision lost to glaucoma cannot be recouped.
However, any of the following symptoms should set off an alarm and
result in an immediate visit to an eye specialist.
Loss of peripheral, or. side, vision, which is often a telltale sign of the
onset of glaucoma
Seeing halos around lights
Persistent redness in the eyes
Pain in the eye
Eyes that look hazy, even after periods of prolonged rest
Onset of tunnel vision, wherein a person's vision becomes increasingly
Can Glaucoma Be Prevented and What's to Come?
Glaucoma cannot be prevented. The best thing anyone can do, whether
they're in the more susceptible demographics or not, is to get regular eye
exams. If detected early, glaucoma can be treated, greatly reducing
potential vision loss. Treatment options include eye drops, laser surgery or
microsurgery. An eye specialist will suggest what's the best option
depending on each individual case.
What people with glaucoma can expect is continued vision loss if they
don't seek treatment. Eventually, without treatment, blindness will occur.
However, very few people who have glaucoma end up going blind, as the
aforementioned treatment options will prevent further vision loss.

Outstanding volunteers honored at
March of Dimes annual appreciation dinner
The North Central Florida
Division of the March of
Dimes held its Annual Volun-
teer Appreciation Dinner to
recognize and celebrate the
hard work of many of its dedi-
cated volunteers on Nov. 15.
Over 200 volunteers, repre-
senting the Alachua, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Lake, Levy, Marion,
Putnam and Suwannee Valley
areas, attended the event held
at the Best Western Gateway
Grand hotel in Gainesville.
The March of Dimes cele-
brated the power and commit-
ment of North Central Florida
volunteers. Six-year-old Alexa
Ostolaza and her parents Josue
and Jessica of Gainesville
were featured and recognized
for the reign as the 2006 Na-
tional Youth Ambassador
Family. Through the year
Alexa and her family traveled
to over 60 cities in 19 states
talking with volunteers about
Alexa's premature birth story
and the importance of people
supporting the March of

Kathy McAllister, March of Dimes Suwannee Valley Community Director, Vern and Maureen Lloyd, 2006 Volunteers of the Year, Tami
Higdon, North Central Florida Division Executive Board Chair.
The Suwannee Valley Vol-
unteer of the Year Award was
presented to Vern and Mau-
reen Lloyd. This husband and
wife team has dedicated their
lives to giving back to causes
that they believe in. Ven and
Maureen along with Robin
and Karen Green started the
Miracle on Marion program
after the birth of Robin and
Karen's premature twin boys.
The twins have since passed
away due to complications of
prematurity but their memory
lives on with The Baby Love
Tree. Vern and Maureen give
generously their time and re-
sources to the community. The
success of this year's Miracle
on Marion auction benefiting
the March of Dimes was in
most part because of the tire-
less efforts of the Lloyds. The
two have been married for 45
years and do everything to-
gether, including raising
awareness for the March of
The March of Dimes is a

the March of Dimes funds
programs of research, commu-
