Judge Land roasted and toasted

Ira Mikell


Free Press Reporter
For several weeks,
Judge Harlow "Hank"
Land, Jr., knew about his
retirement party, but had
no idea what else the
Lafayette County Com-
missioners and others had
in mind. He was com-
pletely unaware that a
surprise ceremony was
being put together in his
honor, for everything he
has done "'since donning
the judicial garb in 1985.
The festivities began in
the courtroom at the
Lafayette County Court-
house at 4 p.m., followed
by a reception at 6 p.m. in
the Lafayette High School
cafetorium on Tuesday,
Dec. 19.
The courtroom over-
flowed with friends, fami-
ly, co-workers, local folks,
and residents from the'
surrounding counties.
There was standing room
only and some folks went
to a nearbY room where
they could watch the cere-
min-ny. According to Patty
Harris, who has been
Judge Land's judicial as-

sistant since 1985, there
may have been as many
as 400 people who came
to participate in the roast-
ing and toasting.
Many tears were shed,
especially by Judge
Land's wife, Nell; son,
Broughton; daughter.
Laura; and. himself.
However, there were also
plenty of visible smiles

In a few days, people

of Jan. 1, counting do-n the
minutes to the new year.
Some people will be eat-

various battles and main-

At the. moment the clock
strikes midnight, many peo-

al "Auld Lang Syne" song.
As people are gathered to-

"UES Cares" Food Drive a huge success


Submitted by Debbie Singletary,
LES Guidance Counselor
Lafayette Elementary held its annual
"LES Cares" food drive during the month
of November. Students brought in food
and personal items daily to help with this
wonderful cause. All items were given to
the Mayo Manna House. During the
month of November, the students were
encouraged to participate in the food dri-
ve as a way to show care for others.


The students did a wonderful job bring-
ing in items. More than 4,000 items were
bought in by the students. The classes that
brought in the most were Mrs. Ruby Mc-
Cray's class, Mrs. Nell Thomas's class, and
Mr. Jamie Fike and Mrs. Angie McCray's
class. These classes were treated to pizza
for doing such a great job in supporting
the food drive. However, every class in
the school participated to make this drive
so successful.

Wildfire danger is


increasing,


Bronson announces
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is asking the public to be care-
ful with all outdoor fires this holiday season.
"Florida has received below-normal amounts of precipi-
tation through the fall months, and this past weekend's
freezing.temperatures in the northern part of the state
have left much of our wildlands vulnerable to wildfire,"
Bronson said. "The freeze-dried vegetation will only add
to the already accumulated debris that is still scattered
across Florida from the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons."
Relative humidity below 35 percent, lack of rainfall for
two weeks or longer, and strong, dry winds are all com-
ponents that create extreme fire danger.,
"Any fire that starts during, these weather conditions
could get out of control and spread quickly," said Bronson.
Bronson encouraged the public to follow these tips:
--Report any suspicious fire by calling 911,
-- Never leave any fire unattended.
Clear an area down to bare.soil around campfires and
warming fires. .
-- Do not burn yard waste during dry, windy conditions.
Keep your home safe from fires by clearing leaves
from the roof and gutters, and by removing dead vegeta-
tion within 30 feet of your home. It is also important to
trim trees and limbs within 15 feet of your chimney and
make sure that you have a properly working spark ar-
rester on your chimney.
Bronson is recommending that.Floridians contact their
local Division of Forestry office for more. information on
fire prevention tips and burning regulations, or visit' the
Division of Forestry's web site at http:/ /www.fl-dof.com..
During the months of September through December,
Florida had 478 wildfires that burned 3,052 acres.

I grew up in a nominally Christian
family. By that I mean we went to
church once in a while with no regu-
larity what-so-ever. The sort of
church goers that the pastor says,
"Merry Christmas and Happy New
Year to you I won't see again until
next Easter." I didn't come to know j.,
the Lord as my personal Savior until I I ..' '.
was 15. David H. Matier
Even though my parents weren't in to
church I still understood the emphasis of Christmas. I
was taught that Christmas was the celebration of the
birth of the Christ child. And realizing the truth about
Christmas didn't prevent us from enjoying all of the
"trappings" of the holidays (I think knowing the real
meaning of Christmas added to the enjoyment of the
holiday traditions).
I grew up in a family that celebrated Christmas with
Santa Claus, Christmas trees, mistletoe, fruit cake, rib-
bon candy, candy canes and the whole shebang! Up un-
til Christmas of 1990 I received Christmas gifts from my
mother that said, "from Santa." I knew there was no
real person with eight reindeer that covered the entire
planet in one night climbing down people's chimneys to
deliver gifts! But it was fun! As far back as I can re-
member my family celebrated Christmas with the em-
phasis in the right place but also enjoying for a few
weeks a fantasy that never hurt anyone (Ecclesiastes 3:1-
8). Some who know me may not agree with this, but I
don't feel that celebrating the Christmas holidays
warped me in any way.
You may have had someone approach you with Jere-
miah 10:1-5. At first glance it may sound like the pas-
sage is talking about a Christmas tree but it's not that at
all! It is speaking about taking a tree and forming it into
an idol and covering it with thin sheets of gold and sil-
ver (not tinsel). They took a tree out of the woods and
formed a god to bow down to! And even if it was a
Christmas tree, notice in Jeremiah 10:5, the last part of
the verse, it says, "Be not afraid of them; for the), cannot
do e\il, neither also is it in them to do good."
In all the years I have celebrated Christmas with San-
ta Claus, Christmas trees, etc. I never bowed down to
the tree: I never worshipped Santa! But I did enjoy the
season I had fun as a kid growing up and with my kids
as a grown up! And you can too as long as you keep
the proper emphasis; the FIRST coming of Jesus Christ.

Have you heard about
FACING THE GIANTS?
This is the film that.has al-
ready made national
headlines because it was
rated PG for religious con-
tent. If you liked "Remem-
ber the Titans," "Hoosiers,"
or "Rudy," you'll love this
great, underdog story that
shows the power of faith
and prayer in dealing with
life's problems. FACING
THE GIANTS.is not only
pure fun wrapped in an
unstoppable teaming of
faith and football, it's also
the first independent,
church-made film to be re-
leased by a major studio!
New Beginnings Church
will show "Facing the Gi-
ants" on Sunday, Decem-
ber 31, at 7:20 pm. The
showing is FREE but you
will have to stop by the
church to pick up a ticket
for entry. Pick-up dates
are December 26, & 28,

cated at 163 West Main

Recipes for a

healthy New Year
By: Priscilla Cashman, Program Assistant
Lafayette County Extension Service
With a new year just starting, these tips can help your
children's nutrition and health earn an A+.
For good health and healthy weight, nutrition and
physical activity play an important role. Be sure to pack
healthy, fun and nutritious foods along with physical
activity into your family's daily routine.
Depending on their age, many children know the
healthful eating basics. And most know that they need
to eat smart and move their bodies to stay healthy. The
challenge is turning their knowledge into smart eating
practices.
Children learn their food habits by watching others -
not just parents, but also friends. For parents: Your food
choices arid lifestyle habits help set your children's food
decisions and behavior.
Keep a regular meal schedule: When meals aren't reg-
ular or when meals are missed, children tend to snack
more heavily throughout the day, so they're less hungry
at mealtime.
Empower your kids: Involve kids in planning meals
and snacks. Encourage your.children to try new foods
without forcing or bribing them. Keep fresh fruit on the
counter where kids can see it. Wash and cut up veggies,
so they're ready to eat.
Eat as a family: Aim for all family members to eat to-
gether at least once a day. Cook fast and eat slowly, al-
lowing time for you to pay attention to feeling full. If
your family is always "on the go," designate family din-
ner nights.
Snacks can be healthy: Chosen carefully, snacks can
supply nutrients that may be missing from the rest of
the day's meals. Children enjoy foods with sensory ap-
peal: brightly colored fruits and vegetables; freshly cut
watermelon; soft, creamy cheese witH crisp, crunchy
crackers. Offer snacks two hours or more before meals,
that way kids will be hungry at mealtime.
Physical activity: Children need to move for good
health. Encourage the whole family to exercise together.
Go for a bike ride, play tennis or shoot hoops. Children
need at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
Eating smart and moving more can lead your kids to
a healthy and successful school year.
For more information on family and children's nutri-
tion, call Priscilla Cashman, Family Nutrition Program,

made my thoughts known concerning
the fact that my graduating class of 1950
came along when we were involved in a
conflict with Korea and the draft was be-
ing used to fill the needs for our military.
There were several young men in my class, about 20 I
believe and as I recall, all but three served in the mili-
tary during that period. Two of our number were not
able to serve due to physical constraints and one of our
number was killed in an automobile accident right after
graduation I believe. I had a little trouble getting into
the military myself due to some foot problems com-
monly referred to as "flat feet" and was.turned down
by the Marines and the Army. :I never applied to the
Navy. The Air Force accepted me and I enlisted for
four years. I recently talked to an old friend, John D.
Horton who had graduated the year before and enlist-
ed in the Air Force. One of the things that we discussed
was what I had written concerning the tobacco






cropping and so on and all that easy money that was to
be made, he reminded me that I had left out one impor-
tant event that concerned some things along those lines
of the tobacco industry so I'll mention that now.. Many
folks won't know but Canada was a major producer of
tobacco at that time, in the 1940's and they had some
farms up there in Ontario that grew large fields of the
crop. Experienced labor for the harvesting and curing of

the tobacco crop in Canada was not available to them lo-
cally so they negotiated the assistance of the USDA who
had a program installed to locate willing young men in
the southern states who would go to Canada to help
them in their crop. It was a rather lucrative deal too. A
person who was 16 or older would be assigned to a par-
ticular farmer and if he had the bus fare he was given pa-
pers to travel with. I believe they were paying 10 dollars
a day at that time and included room and board.
In 1948, John D. and myself signed up after we were
finished with the crops here and away we went on the
Greyhound. Once we were in Canada the bus made a
rest stop and some gent was there to meet us and we
loaded up and he took us to his farm near Brantford, On-
tario.
I think we did a little free gratis work also as we were


taken to a hay field where we loaded hay and such
but no one complained. Talk about good food but those
folks knew how to do it, much the same as we were ac-
customed to here and the sleeping quarters were quite
adequate. The morning started early to tnload a barn
and then we worked to fill it again. That was usually
completed early in the afternoon and there was at least a
little time to idle away.
There was a town about 4 miles away and sometimes
we would take off and walk there and back but not on a
regular basis. When it was time to go back home we took
a day or two to' relax at a resort area known as Port


m


Dover on Lake Erie. This
was similar to what you
would expect to experi-
ence at Jacksonville Beach
or other such places.
There we ran into sever-
al other boys from '
Lafayette County who had
been doing the same thing
as us.
I could describe some of
the interesting things that
occurred on that trip but
will pass that up for now.
We took all that money O.A. Winbur, Jr
that we brought home and ScrubHammock@aol.com
invested it. One further
note; make sure you know the exchange rate a
of currency before you start spending all
that foreign money. If it is not on a par
' with our currency A t


then you could come up a little short. Someone suggest-
ed that a way to keep repeat offenders out of prison
would be to plant a crop of tobacco at the prison and
have the inmates harvest it. Just:might work.
About the time that I enlisted in the Air Force, Dale
Price and John Knight also enlisted and we probably
were stationed near each other during basic training but
we 'never crossed trails. Dale later accepted an offer to
transfer to the Army. At that time there was a critical
shortage of platoon leaders in the Army as the Korean
War was not going well and some trainees were offered
an opportunity to take OTC and receive a commission in
the Army to serve in Korea as platoon leaders. Dale went
that route and I believe he made a career out of the Army
and retired as a Major. .
I later learned that J. D. Bell had also joined the USAF
and John D. and myself visited him at Lackland AFB as
we were returning from leave together.
I returned to Mayo and resumed my studies at the UF
and later settled in for some more tobacco cropping. John
D. wound up with the Duval County's Sheriff's Depart-
ment as a helicopter pilot where he retired after many
years of meritorious service. Not being one to sit idle,
John D. took a job as pilot for the Davis brothers', Winn-
Dixie private jet for a few years before finally settling
down back in Lafayette County.
One more little item about Guy McClain. I will also
mention my daddy in this one .as he is a party to an inter-
esting event. Sometime during the 1940's, a local family
was faced with the need for some expensive surgery to
correct a deformity in the leg of one of their children. ,
This family was apparently not financially able to go
through with this expensive operations) and so they
sought the assistance of a charity hospital in Jacksonville.
Apparently this particular type of surgery was beyond
the hospitals normal ability to perform and sponsors)
were needed to fund it 'srine their budget did not include
the needed funds. :
-Guy McClain was the local Red Cross chairman and so
he was made very aware of this need and asked to see if
there were local sponsors to fund the needs of this family
at this time. My daddy was well known to Guy as a
benevolent and generous person and he was one of the
ones contacted. I was notprivileged to' know the names
of those involved because there was no publicity con-
cerning this and it was not openly discussed in my pres-
ence so what I did know was sort of fortuitous as you
will see. ;
My daddy passed away in 1980 and as I looked at his
records and so on to see if there was any unfinished busi-
ness that needed my attention, I found among his bank-
ing records, canceled checks which had been paid to the
charitable hospital previously mentioned. I recalled some
of what had transpired many years ago involving these
folks so I contacted someone and informed them that he
-ad passed away and asked about the checks to see if he
was obligated to them in any way and was told that he
had been a sponsor and so
on. I asked if there was a
balance remaining on his
obligation and was told no,
that he had paid that many
times over and that for
many years he had been a
regular patron to their
charitable endeavors. This
is not a solicitation for
sponsors.to this worthy in-
stitution but if it makes
you feel good, do it.

picks up


second


victory
by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
The Lafayette boys junior var-
sity basketball team may have
gotten off the season on the
wrong foot but it appears that
Mike Harris' ballclub has right-
ed itself in picking up their sec-
ond win of the season. It was the
second consecutive win for
Coach Harris' Hornets. Bran-
ford fell to Lafayette 75-47 on
their home court. "We are play-
ing better basketball," said
Coach'Harris. "We seem to be
coming together as a team."
Arthur Sellers, a freshman,
and eighth grader Kade Bell
combined for 50 points to lead
Lafayette in a balanced attack.
Sellers led all scorer's with his 27
points that included four three-
point baskets. Devin Bellemy
finished in double figures with
11 points. Zach Fleming netted L
six points with Austin Ander- L
son tossing in.four. Ja'Quan De- t
vore hit a three-point basket for
his three points. Brook Morris
also had three points in the win.
Dominique Gamrner and Austin
Henderson scored two points
each.
Lafayette led by as many as 26
points in the game but let Bran-
ford make a run at them nar-
rowing the margin to 17 points,
47-30. "They made a nice run at
,us kbt, we ,sustained it," said
,;b, J.arris.. "'We forced some .shots:
late in the third period and
turned the ball over several
times and that allowed them to
come back."
But the Hornets kept their
poise and carried the game
away behind the scoring of Bel-
lamy in the fourth period. Belle-
my hit a three-point basket and
completed an old-fashion three
point play to give his.team a 61-'
32 lead.
The Bucanneers got an excel-
lent play from John Perry and
Dakota Beville. Perry finished
with 14 points and Beville
added 12 for the Bucs.
Coach Harris' ballclub found
themselves in an unusual posi-
tion as they roared out to a 12-0
lead before Branford could get'
on the board. Beville's basket .
underneath at the 2:49 mark
gave Branford their first basket.
The Hornets led 19-6 at the first
stop. Sellers scored the last five
points for Lafayette just before
the quarter ended.
Bell had, unofficially, six as-
sists for the Hornets in playing a
strong floor game. He had two
three-point baskets in the con-
test.
Lafayette will return to the
basketball court on January 5
when they travel to Trenton for
district play.

Macklin sends junior

Hornets past Branford

by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
S Coach Jerry Hill's junior varsity Lady Hornet basketball
team continues to roll after posting a 46-10 win over a
good Branford junior varsity team last Thursday night at
Branford. The win evened the junior varsity team to 3-3 on:
the season. Cartesha Macklin led all scorers with her 21
points. She had seven assists in the contest and pulled
S down five rebounds (unofficially). Eileen Givens and Ce-
celia Jackson added seven points each while teammates
Lindsey Hamlin and Anderson scored four points each.
,Bridget Powe had two points while Massey netted one.
Lafayette got out to a quick start and never looked back

Hornets sting Branford 46-38


Lafayette ends

losing streak

by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
The Laifaette Hornets ended
a four game skid last Thursday
night by posting a 46-38 win
over a good Branford Bucan-
neer team. It was a game that
saw the Hornets overcome
some early turnover problems
as well as offensive woes.
Coach Derek Garland said his
team has been struggling in
both areas of late. "We are
struggling shooting the ball
right now. We are getting some
good looks but they are not just
falling," he said. "Hopefully
over Christmas we can get
some practice in, get our legs
under us and get shots back."
loseph Edwards and
Jonathan Sellers each scored 11
points to lead the Hornets. Eric
McIntyre added eight points
but those points came late in
the game, going scoreless in the
first half. Shvler Morgan, who
played a strong defensive
game, finished with four points
as did Jamal Reid and Serigo
Perez. Travis Williams led
Branford with his nine points
followed by NMike Lindle's eight
points. Jacob Luinlam netted
seven. David Campbell man-
aged six points with Dustin
Cannon scoring five. Brian Bul-
lock finished with three.


It was a game with seven
lead changes and six ties.
Lafayette took the lead for
good with 3:55 remaining in the
game. Edwards took the ball
hard to the basket and was
fouled. Completing. the three-
'point play, Edwards gave his
team a 37-34 lead they never re-
linquished. Free throw shooting
down the stretch for the Hor-
nets proved to be the difference
as well as defense. "We hit
some key free throws down the
stretch." said the Lafavette
coach.
The last five minutes of the
game Lafayette held the Bucs to
two field goals. "That is pretty
good defense," said Coach Gar-
land. "I thought we turned up
our intensity a bit in the fourth
quarter. We got the game at the
pace we wanted to play."
The Hornets biggest lead
came at 46-36 before winning
by eight. The Hornets had to
overcome a quick Branford
start as the Bucs rolled out to a
7-0 lead, who led 13-10 after the
initial quarter. Edwards Josh
Scott had key baskets staking
the Hornets to a 21-17 half time
lead. The lead changed hands
five times in the third period
before the Hornets took a 30-28
lead after three quarters on two
charity tosses by lames Dees.
There were three ties in the
fouth period the last coming at
34-34 when the Hornets
outscored the Bucs 12-4 over
the final four minutes.

Coach Jimmy Blankenship's
Lafayette Lady Hornets overcame a
shaky start but when the smoke had'
all cleared his Lady Hornets posted a
69-37 win over host Branford last
Thursday night. The win improved
Lafayette to 13-1 on the season but
more importantly they remain un-
beaten in district play at 3-0. The
Lady Hornets played the second
straight game without freshman Sun-
shine Reid who was suspended for
the game. Reid will return after the
holidays.
Junior Natalie Land led all scorers
with her 28 points. Marla Alcazar fin-
ished with 14 points and Lillie Prine,


who got the start in the absence of
Reid, finished with eight points.
Sharhonda Cherry had seven points.
TaQuelia Macklin added five points
and Kelsey Land drilled a three-point
basket for her three points. Ana Mon-
roy scored two for the Lady Hornets.
Branford came out not being intim-
idated by Lafayette and played the
Lady Hornets close the first quarter.
After Lafayette raced out to a 9-0 lead
the Lady Bucs scored the next eight
to trail 9-8. Land put Lafayette in
front with a trey in the opening sec-
onds and drained her second three-
pointer following Macklin's free
throw. Land took a nice pass from
Cherry for an easy basket that gave
the Lady Hornets the 9-0 lead.


Kristy Lynch, who led Branford in
scoring with her 15 points, scored
back-to-back buckets to narrow the
margin to five. Baskets by Sarah
Keast and Kristin Stillwell make it a
one point game at 9-8. Lafayette led
11-10 before they went on a 9-0 run
to lead 20-10 at the first break. After
that the Lady Hornets press took the
Lady Bucs out of their game as they
rolled to a 37-20 half time lead. The
Lady Hornets never looked back
winning for the 13th time this sea-
son.
Keast finished with six points for
Branford as did Caitlin Dempsey.
Stillwell had four points with Brooke
Stebbins and Harley Stebbins finish-
ing with two points apiece.

Shop end-of-season



for the best deals

Who hasn't heard the complaint that items are more ex-,
pensive today than ever? From retail chains to warehouse
centers, register receipts are testament to the high cost of liv-
ing.
According to the American Express Everyday Spending
index, U.S. households spent $3,240 on average for groceries
last year. Other areas of consumer spending continue to
show growing dollar amounts as well.
For consumers looking to conserve money overall, one of
the best ways to save is to shop off-season sales. Many types
of merchandise have definitive "seasons" and once the sea-
son has expired, stores look to clear out the shelves to make
room for new items. Here are some tricks for using end-of-
season sales to your advantage:
Fall/Winter
The cold weather months offer a variety of store sales;
New clothing styles typically come into stores in January
through March, so you can get a steal on last year's looksZ'
Also, winter clothing will start to be discounted to make
room for spring apparel.
Now's also a good time to price summer-related items.
Stores may have an overstock of patio and garden merchan4-
dise, including table sets and barbecues. Some' companies,;
such as pool and spa retailers, may offer discounts'on pool;
purchases and installation during colder months when their
services aren't in peak demand. The same can be said for air
conditioning system installers. Typically, vehicles show'
their worst traits during the winter, so automotive dealer,
ships may offer more room for negotiation on vehicles lefg
on the lot. Watch for promotions when the next year's mod-'
els are due in as well.
January is the ideal time to stock up on holiday decora
tions, wrapping and all the other trimmings left over from
the recent holiday season. Prices could be slashed by 50 per-
cent or more. Simply stash, newly bought items away for"
,,next year and be ahead of the game.
Spring/Summer
With spring cleaning and home renovation on the mind,
many retailers put paint, stains and exterior products on sale
at this. time. However, the biggest sales and .deepest dis-
counts. are typically offered during the "long weekends"
that occur, during the warm-weather months. Memorial
Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends are some of
the biggest sale times so take advantage.
Now could also be a good time to plan ahead for the frosty:
.days of the future. You may be -able to negotiate deals on,
new, energy efficient windows, doors and. heating systems,
in preparation for winter's wrath. Check to see if there are
discounts on snow shovels or'snowblowers when everyone.
else isf thinking about hitting the beach. You'll save money
and be prepared for the first big snowstorm while neighbors:

are dashing to home centers when the blizzards hit.
You can probably find discounts on running shoes during
the summer as well. Shoe manufacturers often come up with
new styles every six months, so discounts in the winter and
summer are common. And the same can be said for getting
deals on summer clothes once August rolls around.. You'll
Shave ample time to show off those. discounts ,.before: .ti
warm w%'eather takes a hiatus.
By taking creative measures to save money,consumers.
can stretch their already 'taut budgets even further.

Exemptions for Florida debtors Judge
Continued From Page 1A


At the time of the year, when
the spirit of gift-giving can be a
powerful and overwhelming
force, many people spend far
more money than their budget
permits and get themselves into
debt. At times, it can be writing a
check when there is not enough
money in the bank to cover the
check, but most often debt arises
through the extension of credit by
a credit card company such as
Visa, MasterCard, American Ex-
press or Discover Card. When an
account becomes delinquent by
more than sixty (60) days, dun-
ning letters are written and if the
problem is" not resolved, a lawsuit
ean be and usually is filed by the
credit card company against the
debtor.
Since there is no such thing as
debtor's prison in the United
States, the object of a lawsuit on a
delinquent account is to obtain a
judgment. A creditor cannot ob-
tain a judgment except by going
through a court of law, usually
the County Court (more than
$5,000 but less than $15,000). A
judgment is obtained when a
Judge enters an order in favor of
the creditor granting the relief re-


quested by the creditor, which or-
der is called a judgment.
After a judgment is entered,
creditors have many ways to ob-
tain the moneys awarded them,
such as the right to garnish a
debtor's wages, or seek to obtain
moneys from a debtor's checking
or savings account, or seize and
sell a debtor's personal property,
place a lien on a debtor's real
property and do other things,
within established limits, but
debtor's have rights, too, even af-
ter a judgment is entered against
them.
Florida Statute 77.04T1 provides
that a debtor is EXEMPT from
having his or her wages gar-
nished, exempt from having mon-
ey taken from a bank, savings and
loan association or credit union,
and exempt from having other
property taken from them (by
way of seizure and sale, pursuant
to execution on a judgment) un-
der the following situations:
1. Head of Household. Wages
cannot be garnished if the debtor
provides more than one-half of
the support for a child or other
dependent and has NET earnings
of $500 or less per week. Even if


the debtor earns more than $500
net per week, the wages cannot
be garnished so long as the
debtor has not agreed, in writing
to allow the wages to be gar-
nished;
2. The debtor's only source of
income is from any of the follow-
ing:
a) Social Security benefits
b) Supplemental Security In-
come (SSI) benefits
c) Public Assistance
d) Worker's Compensation ben-
efits;
e) Unemployment Compensa-
tion benefits;
f) Veteran's benefits;
g) Retirement or profit-sharing
benefits or pension money;
h) Life insurance benefits or
cash surrender value of a life in-
surance policy or proceeds of an
annuity contract
i) Disability income benefits; or
k) Prepaid College trust Fund
or Medical Savings Account.
There are many other exemp-
tions as well. However, to obtain
the Exemption, adebtor must
complete a form entitled 'Claim of
Exemption and Request for Hear-
ing' and go before a judge and


ask a judge to enter an order find-
ing that he or she is, in fact and as
a matter of law, entitled to the Ex-
emption sought. Even if money or
property has already been seized,
garnished or otherwise taken, the
Statute allows a judge to order
the return of the money, under
certain limited circumstances.
So, the best advise is to spend
wisely and stay within your
budge, but if you find yourself in
a financial bind and fear losing
everything because of lawsuits
from creditors, know your rights.
and protect yourself as best youc
can under the law.
The foregoing advice is provid-
ed by the lawyers at Three Rivers
Legal Services, Inc. a nonprofit'
corporation which receives funds
from various local agencies and
individuals as well as from the
federal government through the
Legal Services Corporation (LSC).
For specific advice on your partic-
ular situation, we suggest that
you consult with a lawyer of your
choosing. If you cannot afford a
lawyer, you may call your local
legal services office to find out if
you qualify for free legal assis-
tance.

The biggest and most
memorable award was
the naming of the court-
room as the "Harlow H.
Land, Jr. Courtroom." B.
Z. Cashman and Jerry
Metzger quietly worked
together to help bring
this project to comple-
tion.
Metzger stated that he
hoped that this creation;
a beautifully done wall
display, will remain a
perpetual tribute to Judge
Land and anyone who
enters the "Harlow H.
Land, Jr. Courtroom" will
be reminded of the many
things he did for the com-
munity through the
years.
Even Broughton and
Laura paid tribute to
their father. They spoke
passionately about how
they loved and looked up
to him as a role model. In
addition, they stated how
much they appreciated
everything he has done
for them while. growing
up, whether it was dur-
ing the time when they
were in school, at his of-
fice, or enjoying family
outings.,
Later during the recep-
tion, several of Judge
Land's friends, who grew
up with him, shared sev-
eral stories of the fond
memories they had. As-
sistant State Attorney
Skip Jarvis rose to speak,
telling the, audience sto-
ries 'about his working re-
lationship with Judge
Land and how he will
miss working with him.
At the end of.both the
ceremony and reception,
Judge Land shared a few
fond memories of his.
own, told a few jokes,
and thanked everyone for
the gifts that he,had re-..
ceived while trying to
hold 'back the tears of joy
that were welling up. "I
want to thank all of the
people of Lafayette Coun-
ty for what you have
done for me. I feel very
honored. It has been an
honor to serve you as
your county judge for 22
years," Land said.

dealt with educational,
business, and govern-
mental concerns. On a lo-
cal level, Ward brought
several items to the atten-
tion of Argenziano and
Boyd that he felt needed
to be addressed.
One of these issues con-
cernerd the need to make
all schools equally ac-
countable, regardless if it
is a public, private, or
charter school. "Any char-
ter school or private
school that gets public
funds should still be un-
der the same standards of
accountability for student
performance and finan-
cial management as pub-
lic schools," Ward said.
After hearing this con-
cern, Argenziano and
Boyd acknowledged this
problem and reassured
him that they are work-
ing diligently to pass leg-
islation that would make
all schools that are fund-

As the meeting came to

that they will take these
concerns to Tallahassee
and do what they can to

Suwannee County has certainly been changed by

the advent of the interstate highway system, although
the impact wasn't felt right away. Traffic on 1-10 was
relatively light when it opened here in the late 1960s,
and didn't increase significantly until recently. In the
.* last few years the impact of 1-10 on local commerce
S- "- has been dramatic. Wal-Mart, Lowe's, restaurants,
motels all have been built around the US 129/1-10
"" interchange in recent years.
~ It's been a mixed blessing, said Live Oak Mayor

SSonny Nobles. 'The impact on the tax base and the
S added jobs are good," he said. "But growth puts
S. stress on the infrastructure police, fire, water, sewer,
S-etc."


Interstate 75 runs through a portion of Suwannee
.- County and a lot of neighboring Columbia and Hamil-
SP ton COunties and hasn't had nearly as great an im-
Spact on the local economy.
What if more of 1-75 had run through Suwannee
S. County? "We would have lost our rural flavor faster
than we already have," said County Commission
S-. Chairman Randy Hatch. "We would have had growth
o ,. management issues before we were prepared to
.- deal with them."
- --- Hamilton County has just begun to deal with the is-
- sue of growth management, especially with the re-
cent construction of a jai alai fronton near the US
-- -- 129/1-75 interchange.

NORTH FLORIDA FOCUS DECEMBER 27-28, 2006, PAGE 5C


Reminiscing with Captain Brian


By: Capt. Brian Smith,
Big Bend Charters
This is just a clip from the
book Capt. Brian is writing. If
you are interested in a copy,
just drop us a line and we will
put you on the list when the
book is finished, hopefully
early next year!
If air conditioning hadn't
been invented, Florida would
be less populated than
Wyoming.
It would take just one Au-
gust month without air condi-
tioning to empty this state of
most of the people in it. There
would be a mass northern mi-
gration of dehydrated smelly
people with stringy oily hair.
Those who choose to stay be-
hind and endure the heat
would later become known as
the "Asbestos Indians" as the
state reverted back to the wild.
That crazy thought trickled
through my mind as sweat
trickled down the crack of my
butt while standing on the
oven rack called the deck of
my boat last' August praying,
for a puff off air. I
Then I reminisced of the hot
summers growing up in Vir-
ginia Beach, Va.
One memory sprang to mind,
when a neighbor took three of.
us young boys fishing on a
pier. The recollection went
something like this ...
The tires crackled over the
sun bleached oyster shells that
paved the parking lot. We
could hear them crunch loudly
because the 455 air condition-
er completely stopped blowing.
when we turned in. Nowadays
most folks have never heard of
the antiquated 455 air condi-
tioner, but back then it was
what most all vehicles were
equipped with. You see, for the
air conditioner to work all four
windows had to be. rolled
down and the car moving at 55
miles per hour or better. It
would even style your hair as
you went along.
"Well boys let's get un-
loaded," Mr. Sullivan said to'-
Gilbert, his son, Johnny, a
neighborhood friend and me.
Mr. Sullivan grabbed all
four poles and the five-gallon'
bucket and started walking to-
ward the front of the parking
lot. He stopped, turned and
said, "Close the lid when you
get the coolers out and hurry
up."
Two of us were needed to
lift the small cooler from the
trunk. Gilbert and I sat it on the
ground and opened it up. In-
side were six half-gallon milk
cartons, a plastic gallon jug of
tea, four Styrofoam cups and
what looked like peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches stacked
in a bread bag.
'We formed a three-boy
chain with coolers in between
us. We'd hump it towards the
pier for as long as the guy in
the middle could last then put
down the load and shift one to.
the left and continue on with a
new guy in the middle posi-
tion. We were in sweat soaked
agony by the time we made it
up to the pier house where Mr.
Sullivan waited.
"What' took you boys so
long?" he said turning away
smiling.. He handed the man
behind the counter a $10 bill.
The man gave him back four
bucks and.some change. I no-
ticed the fare was a buck a
head for us kids. I also noticed
the wall of fishing tackle, the
stacks of bait buckets, shelves
randomly stocked with sun
block, cheese and peanut but-
ter crackers, T-shirts, cases of
Vienna sausages, dusty bottles
of hot sauce, big straw hats,
cigars, candy bars and other
stuff.
Everything looked like it
had been hanging there for a


long time. The dust was a dead
give away. Along one wall was
a good sized refrigerated case
with a small section of soft
drinks and a big section of
beer; mostly Budweiser in a
can. One of the bottom shelves
had empty beer flats filled with
plastic bags labeled "blood
worms." You could see the red
worms through the clear plas-
tic wadded .up in creepy ball.
Every free space on the walls,


posts, shelves and counters
had a faded photograph of
people with fish taped or
thumb tacked to it. I kept go-
ing from one photo to the next
until I was interrupted.
"Brian, the man needs to
stamp your hand with a pier
pass," blurted Mr. Sullivan.
The man had stamped the
back of everyone else's left
hand with a smiley face sym-
bol. When I raised my hand to
get stamped by the unshaven
ape-ishly hairy, fat man in a
skin tight; used to be white,
tank top, I was shook by the
smell of body odor, strong cig-
arette and stale beer. I looked
at him as he uas stamping my
hand. His mouth was agape.
What teeth were there hung
down from his gums like dried
kernels of rotten corn. Strings
of elastic spittle connected the
top and lower jaw in the cor-
ners of his mouth. "There you
go kid," he said.
I took off for the door.
Gilbert and Johnny were al-
ready on the outside post of the
cooler train. I was happy to get
the middle position and leave
the pier house. We could see
Mr. Sullivan well ahead of us
when we started out on the
pier. Each of us boys gazed
down what had ,to be the
longest pier in the world.
"How far we got to go?"
Johnny asked.
"He usually starts fishing
near the end," said Gilbert.
Somehow, I knew that was
going to be the answer, that's
why I didn't want to ask the
question.
Fortunately, a good sea
breeze blew across us when
we were just a short ways out
on the open pier. It felt like a
cool fan thick with the smell of
salt water. It felt great.
We stopped to reposition. I
was loving that breeze as we
weaved in and around people,
trash cans, light poles, coolers,,
gobs of tackle and other mis-
cellaneous stuff one finds on a
',fishing pier. It was my first,.
time on a fishing pier and
everything was new to me and
fun to watch.
We stopped again to reposi-
tion.
I quickly learned to hold my
breath when down wind. of
pier trash cans. People throw
their unused bait in those cans
instead of tossing it in the wa-
ter and letting the fish eat for
free. The surprise odor of hot
'rotten shrimp, squid, fish or a
blended smell of any of which
will garner a gag reflex.
Again, we stopped to reposi-
tion,
The weight of those coolers
was wearing us out. They must
have been gaining weight with
each step of the way. Mr. Sul-
livan stopped just short of the
end of the pier on the left hand
side. We were so thankful he
'stopped. We dropped the cool-
ers down next to the wooden
bench we were going to be
fishing by. Johnny 'and I
flopped down on the bench.
"You boys tired already?"
Mi. Sullivan asked as' he
smiled and turned away.
"You guys want some tea?"
Gilbert asked.
"Sure," said Mr. Sullivan.
Johnny and I gave Gilbert
the "good call" look and
hopped up to help him. Gilbert
handed his dad the first cup of.
cold tea. We three kids gulped
down two quick cups. I no-
ticed the jug was half empty
when Gilbert 15ut it back in the
cooler.
"Mr. Sullivan, what are the
guys fishing for at the .end of
the pier with those long fishing
poles?" I asked.
"Kingfish and sharks," re-
sponded Mr. Sullivan.
I wanted to ask more about


it but he seemed to have an
agenda that didn't have any-
thing to do with kingfish or
sharks.
Nevertheless, those cluster
of fellows concentrating on
what lay beyond the end of the
pier stuck in my mind. Mr.
Sullivan was asked the first
question to start an obsession.
"Boys, here's how it works,"
Mr. Sullivan said boldly, be-
fore going on to explain how


to fish from the pier. All four
rods and reels were identical.
He picked out one, grabbed a
rag from the bucket and began
to wipe the dusty grit from the
rod and reel. The rod was a
white, 42 inch long, stiff, solid
fiberglass stick about the di-
ameter of a pencil from the tip
to where it joined a metal pis-
tol grip reel seat that ended in
a short cork handle. The rod
had a tip and two small metal
eyes tied to the pole with red
and white thread. The reel was
a Penn No. 77. The body of the
reel was made of dark brown
plastic. Light green plastic
handle knobs adorned the
crank. Metal tubes spanned
across the spool fitting the two


sides of the reel together. The
reel foot was made of metal.
The fancy part of the reel was
a small round metal button on
the left hand side of the reel
that if pushed forward would
make a clicking sound when
the spool turned forward or
backwards.
"That's.the clicker," Mr. Sul-
livan pointed out, then told us
to never use it. There was no
lever to take the spool in or out
of gear. It was direct drive. The
handle spun backwards when
line was played out. When you
wanted to reel in, you turned
the handle forward. It was as
simple as it gets.. It looked like
.a toy.
"This is a bottom rig... ,"
Mr. Sullivan explained,
pulling one from the bucket. It
was -a store bought gizmo
about 18 inches long. It started
with a barrel swivel and ended
with a sinap swivel. The two,
were connected by a thin plas-
tic coated wire. Two light
twisted wire arms about six
inches in length dangled out
from the main plastic coated
wire. One was fixed with
beads and crimps to stay at the
top and other beaded and


crimped to hang at the bottom.
The two little arms could spin
around on the main wire.
"Where are the hooks Mr.
Sullivan?" Johnny asked.
"I'm getting to that part,
give me a minute Johnny," Mr.
Sullivan shot back. With that
'said, Mr. Sullivan pulled a
long plastic sleeve from the
bucket. It looked like a see
through envelope with a piece
of heavy construction paper
inside. Mr. Sullivan flipped it
around to show us. A line up
of leadered hooks was on the:
side with the writing.
I slid the small cooler over
to the railing so I could stand
on it and lean over the top of
the banister like Mr. Sullivan.


Pole in hand leaning over the
banister watching the waves
far down below I took my
thumb off the spool and let the
rig plummet down to the wa-
ter. When the rig hit the water
a snarl of fishing line billowed
out of my reel. "Put your
thumb on it, put your thumb
on it,.Brian!" yelled Mr. Sulli-
van.
I was a statue when a big
thumb pressed against the
spool stopping the accident
from getting any worse. I felt
stupid.
"Reel this one up and then
we'll work out this birds nest,"
Mr. Sullivan, said gruffly. His
rod had two fish on it when he
handed it to me. I reeled them
up but didn't feel 'too good
about it. The two croakers I
took off and put in the cooler
before walking over to Mr.
Sullivan. He was picking and
pulling on the fishing line. In a
few long minutes he had the
line smoothed out. "Remem-
ber you have to keep'light
pressure on the spool with
your thumb so you won't get a
bird's nest" he warned me.
"Thanks for the help, Mr.
Sullivan," I quietly said. I

looked over at Gilbert and
Johnny and they were gestur-
ing me the silent monkey
dance. I felt like a dumb mon-
key.
My rig still had the shrimp
on the hooks, so I stepped
back up on the cooler and cau-
tiously lowered my rig into the
ocean. A salty blow of air
climbed in my face as I
watched the rig go in the wa-
ter. As soon I felt it hit the bot-
tom I put my right hand on the
handle. As soon as f did that, I
could feel the fish popping the
bait. I set the hook and sped
reeled the fish all the way to
the tip of the rod and flung
them over the banister onto
the pier.


I laid the rod down on 'the
deck and squatted over the
flopping fish like a rice
farmer. The fish went in the
cooler. My bait was gone so I
went for another shrimp when
I heard. "'Use the squid it will
last longer." Those words
came from Mr. Sullivan who
had been watching me the en-
tire time.
Gilbert and Johnny had laid
a gob of squid on the bench'
end.and laid a small wet towel
over it. I wondered why they
put the bait where we might
end up sitting on it. So I asked
Johnny. "Mr. Sullivan told us


to put it there because if we
left it on the cutting board or
up on the banister the sea gulls
would carry it off and eat it,"
Johnny said.
I looked around the pier and
saw dozens of sea gulls
perched up around the sinks,
trash cans and those fishing.
They were sitting, waiting for
a fast food opportunity. The
skies have eyes. The wet tow-
el was to keep -the food hid-
den, as well as, to keep the sun
from baking it dry; I guessed;
I learned.
I took two strips and pinned
them on my hooks. Mr. Sulli-
van was steady putting fish in
the box and Gilbert and John-
ny were just getting started.
Up on the cooler I went and
down went my bottom rig.
Again when the bait hit the
bottom it was instantly picked
up by two croakers. It went on
like that for an hour.
. Gilbert and Johnny tried to
go to the other side of the pier
but Mr. Sullivan called them
back. "Why can't we fish on
the other side Mr. Sullivan?"
Johnny asked.
"Son, the tide has just start-
ed coming in," Mr. .Sullivan
replied.
"So," quipped Johnny, "oh
the other side your baits will
get washed up under the pier
and get hung up."
I thought things aren't as
random as they first seemed.
For that hour we all were pick-
ing up fish as fast as we could
get the bait to the bottom. I'd
never experienced anything
like it. It didn't even feel like
fishing. If you had enough
skill to get bait 'to the bottom
without making a mess, you
could catch a fish. I found my-
self totally in the moment. The
heat was gone. There was no
wind. There were no odors. I
was alone amongst many. The
bounty of fish had reduced my
world to the tiny area between
the banister and the fish cool-
er on a big. pier propped, out,
over an endless ocean. ,
Once Mr. Sullivan asks usi
to pull the bait out of the fish
box and put it in the food cool-
er and shift the ice blocks over
on top of the fish. We had to
shift the ice blocks on top of
the fish a second time, before
the action began to trickle off
until it stopped all together.
We moved camp down the
pier toward the beach and ...
