Man arrested for


shooting father

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
Richard Ernest Boyd, 34, 10428 First St., White Springs,
was arrested by Lafayette County Sheriff's Office (LCSO)
Sergeant Alan Ellis on Jan. 3, on charges of aggravated
battery with a firearm (count one) and aggravated as-
sault (count two).
The altercation, according to the LCSO arrest report,
took place at Boyd's father's home at 933 Magnolia Road,
at 1 a.m. when Richard Ernest Boyd entered into his fa-
ther's bedroom at that residence, with a Rossi .38 re-
volver and shot at him multiple times. One of the bullets
injured Richard Boyd, Sr. in the left knee, the report also
indicated.
According to the arrest report Richard Ernest Boyd
was confronted by Richard Boyd Sr.'s ex-wife, Kathy
Adams, who asked what he was doing.
As Adams fought with Richard Ernest Boyd, he fled
from the scene, leaving the weapon the report said.
Sgt. Ellis located Boyd at 943 NE Mandrin Ave. in
Lafayette County a short time later. Richard Ernest Boyd
was arrested and transported to the Lafayette County -
Jail. He was held on $100,000 bond on count one and a
$5,000 bond on count two. He bonded out on Jan. 5.
According to Lafayette County Sheriff Carson McCall,
the injury which Richard Boyd Sr. sustained during the
shooting was not life-threatening, the case is still under
investigation.

Free Press Reporter

Leenette McMillan, a
1987 graduate of Lafayette
High School and a 1995
graduate of FSU College of
Law, Tallahassee was ap-
pointed as the next
Lafayette County Attorney
on Dec. 11. She replaces
Conrad Bishop who sat
alongside the county com-
missioners and provided
them with legal counsel on
a myriad of issues for 32
years.
Bishop speaks very high-
ly of McMillan and believes
she is well-suited for,the
position. "I am sure that
Ms. Leenette McMillan will
do a fine job for the Board
of County Commission of
Lafayette County and I
wish her and the Commis-
sion all the best in the com-
ing years," Bishop said.
Before assuming her new
role, McMillan practiced
law in Mayo, and, prior to
that, she worked as an as-
sistant state attorney prose-
cuting in misdemeanor,
felony and juvenile trials.

Mayo Manna House Director Don
Imler has a good reason to be smil-
ing about at the start of this new
year. Since its last food drive in No-
vember of last year, Mayo Manna
House has had a constant flow of
donations from Lafayette Elemen-
tary students, churches, businesses
and others. Donations consisted of
food, furniture, books, money and
other items.
Before the food drive began, near-
ly all of the shelves were bare with
very little food and other necessities
to give to needy families. Imler, as
well as those who work with him,
feel overwhelmed by the love and
support poured out by the commu-
nity.


Imler thanks everyone who
pitched in to help Mayo Manna
House refill its shelves and continue
its mission. "I want to thank all of
the churches, businesses, students,
and everyone else for their contin-
ued support. Without your help, we
would not be here," Imler said with
a glowing smile on his face.
Mayo Manna House is a non-
profit humanitarian organization
that accepts donations of various
types and gives those items to
needy families on behalf of those
who contribute.
If you would like to make a dona-
tion to Mayo Manna House, Imler
says that it needs to be delivered
between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2
p.m. Monday through Friday. He
advises people against leaving any-

-Florida's minimum.
wage is $6.67 per hour ef-
fective January 1, 2007 for
all hours worked in Flori-
da. This represents an
hourly increase of 27
cents over the current
state minimum wage of
$6.40 per hour. Florida's
minimum wage was cre-
ated in a constitutional
amendment approved by
voters on November 2,
2004, and covers all em-
ployees in the state cov-
ered by the federal mini-
mum wage.
The increase in the min-
imum wage this year rep-
resents a 4.2 percent
change in the federal con-
sumer price index for ur-
ban wage earners and
clerical workers in the
South Region for the 12-
month period prior to
September 1, 2006. Flori-
da's new minimum wage
will be $1.52 more than
the current $5.15 federal
minimum wage.
Employers must pay
their employees a wage
not less than the amount
of the hourly state mini-
mum wage for all hours
worked in Florida. The
definitions of "employer,"
"employee," and "wage"
for state purposes are the
same as those established
under the federal Fair La-
bor Standards Act (FLSA).
For "tipped employees"
meeting eligibility re-
quirements for the tip
credit under the FLSA,
employers may count tips
actually received as
wages under the FLSA,
but the employer must
pay "tipped employees" a
direct wage in an amount
equal to the minimum
wage of $6.67 minus $3.02

(which, as required by
Florida's Constitution, is
the 2003 tip credit existing
under the FLSA), or a di-
rect hourly wage of $3.65
on January 1, 2007.
Employees who are not
paid the minimum wage
may bring a civil action in
a court of competent juris-
diction against the em-
ployer or any person vio-
'lating Florida's minimum
wage law. The state at-
torney general may also
'bring an enforcement ac-
tion to enforce the mini-
mum wage. As stated in
Florida's Constitution, the
case law, administrative
interpretations, and other
guiding standards under .
the FLSA should be the
guide regarding the con-
struction of Florida's con-
stitutional amendment
creating the minimum
wage. FLSA information
and compliance assistance
can be found at
http://www.dol.gov/ dol
/compliance/ comp-

Beginning in 2007, sec-
tion 448.109, Florida
Statutes, requires that em-
ployers who must pay
their employees the Flori-
da minimum wage to post
a minimum wage notice
in a conspicuous and ac-
cessible place in each es-
tablishment where such
employees are employed.
This poster requirement is
in addition to the federal
requirement to post a no-
tice of the federal mini-
mum wage. Florida's
minimum wage poster is
available for downloading
in English and Spanish
from the Agency for
Workforce Innovation's
webpage at:

Mr. Lincoln asked a man,
"How many legs would a
donkey have, if you called
his tail a leg?" "Five," came
the reply. "No," said Lin-
coln, "calling a tail a leg
won't make it one."
And calling one a Christ-
ian, who doesn't have
Christ, won't make him
one. The Bible says,. "As
many as received Him, to
them gave He power to be-
come the children of God."
There are some things
you've never done, some
things you'll never do,
some things you can't do,
but there's one thing you
must do. You must receive
or reject the Lord Jesus.
You will receive Him
now, won't you?

January is National



Oatmeal Month


By: Priscilla Cashman,
Program Assistant,
Lafayette County
Extension Service
Are you thinking about
making some changes in
your diet and lifestyle for
the new year? Did you
know that 40 scientific stud-
ies show that eating oatmeal
may help lower blood cho-
lesterol levels? Based on
this research, the Food and
Drug Administration ap-
proved the first food-specif-
ic health claim for oatmeal.
Think of each rolled oat as
a tiny sponge that soaks up
cholesterol from your diges-
tive tract. Experts believe
it's the soluble fiber found in
oats that helps reduce the
blood cholesterol levels.
How? In simple terms, oat
soluble fiber (beta glucan)
helps control blood choles-
terol by binding with some
of the cholesterol in your di-
gestive tract. This choles-
terol is "trapped" and elimi-
nated from your body natu-
rally.
Incorporating oatmeal
into your diet plan can have
many delicious advantages.
Some good-for-you oat
ideas.are:
Replace up to one-third of
the flour with quick or old
fashioned oats every time
you bake.
SUse oats instead of bread
or cracker crumbs in your
favorite meatloaf or meat-
ball recipes.


Priscilla Cashman

Grab a portable breakfast
like a lemon blueberry oat
meal muffin or a chewC
fruit & oatmeal bar, whe:
you are running late.
Snack on instant oatmeal
lower-fat oatmeal, muffin
and lower-fat oatmeal cook
ies and bars.
Add variety to that break
fast bowl of oatmeal b'
varying the topping. Tr
low-fat yogurt, wheat germ
dried or fresh fruit, spices
brown sugar, honey, maple
flavored syrup and apple
sauce. Or cook oatmeal ir
half fruit juice and half wa

Natalie Land is no doubt one of Florida's top female
basketball players. She proves that every night out.
Friday night was no different as the Lafayette Lady
Hornets journeyed to Trenton to face the Lady Tigers,
who were 3-6 on the season. When the smoke had all
cleared the gymnasium, it would be Lafayette coming
out with a 69-12 district victory. The win would improve
the Lady Hornets to 14-1 on the season and they stayed
perfect in the district standings at 7-0.
Land finished the contest with a double-double. She
led all scorers with her 27 points and she pulled in 13 re-
bounds. Land dished out seven assists in the victory.
Sunshine Reid came away with 14 points but had seven
assists to go with that total. Reid came up with nine
steals for the Lady Hornets. Sharonda Cherry finished
strong with 13 points which included two three point
baskets. She contributed three steals in the win.
Lafayette had 21 steals in the game and they turned
the ball over only eight times in the contest. The Lady
Hornets defense held Trenton to only four field goals for
the game in winning for the 14th time this. season.
The Lady Hornets had not been on the hardwood since
the holiday breaks. Coach Jimmy Blankenship said it was
a good game to come back to after the break. "We want-
ed to get a game under us after coming back from the
break," he said. "We have a good Newberry team coming

Enjoy!
That might be the advice of
S Lafayette Junior Varsity basketball
S coach Mike Harris to his team after
They posted a 55-29 win over the
Trenton Tigers last week. The win
was the third straight for the junior
Hornets.
For a team who had not been on
the hardwood for two weeks, the
Hornets looked sharp from the on-
S set. Coach Harris said with the effort
he got from his squad. "Having not
played in a couple of weeks I
thought we looked a little rusty out
there," said the Hornet mentor. "We
.. will take the Win."
: The Hornets defense arose to the
: challenge in forcing the Tigers to
ast Friday turn the ball over. "We put in our 2-
Spumped 2-1 press and that help us to get the
ayette ju- turnovers," said Harris. "We were
'lor able to get up and down the floor


a straigl

and I think that was the difference."
The Hornets, who improved to 3-6
on the season, not only played
stingy defense but they had a bal-
anced offensive attack. Led by
Antwan Brown's 14 points, the Hor-
nets placed four players in double
figures. It was Browns first game of
the season after coming off suspen-
sion. He finished a double-double
the game with 14 rebounds as well.
"He had been practicing with us
since the beginning of the season
and so we figured he would be able
to contributed pretty quick," Harris
said. He certainly played well his
.first night out."
The holidays just ending, the addi-
tion of a smoother offense with solid
defense put thoughts of more victo-
ries, not sugar plums, dancing in the
heads of the junior Hornets.
Kade Bell added 13 points for the
Hornets with Arthur Sellers netting
11 points. Zach Fleming finished

with 10. Devin Bellemy, who played
a strong defensive game, finished
with two points and Ja' Devore net-
ted four points. Ethan Perry scored
one point. Bell drained three three-
point baskets and Devore had one.
Bell finished with three assists to go
with his 13 points. Fleming had two.
Fleming also pulled down 11 re-
bounds in the win.
Lafayette held a 12-10 advantage
at the first stop behind the scoring of
Sellers and Fleming. Each scored six
points in the opening quarter. The
Hornets defense took over in the
second period holding Trenton to
five points in taking a 26-15 lead to
the locker room at the half.
It was a team effort for Coach Har-
ris' ballclub, something he said was
coming along. "That is something
we started back when we played
North Florida," he said of his teams

comeback against Trenton


S'.by Ed Taylor
S Sports Correspondent
The Trenton High School
gymnasium was no place
for the faint-hearted last
Friday night.
In front of a lively Tren-
ton student body and a
number of other fans, the
Tigers saw one get away
from them against
Lafayette as coach Derek
Garland's Hornets came
.* back in a big way to secure
a 56-54 district win over a
very good Trenton team.
Even with no more time
left on the scoreboard still
Trenton had their chance
is play against to tie the game and send
27 points and the game into overtime.
i9-12 win. The With 0:00 showing, Bran-
oto by Ed Taylor don Mathis stood at the


free throw line shooting a
bonus free throw. One
could only imagine the
thoughts going through his
mind as he stood all alone
at the charity stripe. Math-
is bent his knees as a good
free throw shooter would
and released the ball send-
ing it toward the basket as
the gym became ever so
quite. The ball hit the left
of the basket and careened
to the right falling off the
rim. Mathis could only
drop to his knees in dis-
gust as the Hornets cele-
brated the victory.
The game was of the
low-scoring variety but
you could credit the Hor-
nets defense for stopping
the offense of the Tigers.


Coach Garland felt like hi
team is starting to come
around with their defense.
"I think we finally starting
playing to our potential.
The guys finally got tired
of giving up easy buckets
and took a little bit of
pride among themselves
that they decided to step
up and make some plays."
Trenton was in control o
the game through the first
two and half quarters. The
Tigers led 21-10 after the
first quarter and took an 1I
point lead to the locker
room at the half. Trenton's
biggest lead was at 20
points in the third period
at 38-18. At the 4:43 mark

The Lafayette Middle
School boys basketball
team dropped a 26-15 deci-
sion to visiting Raines after
building an earlier lead.
The Hornets went cold af-
ter the first quarter and
saw Raines claw their way
back into the game and
eventually coming away
with the win.
Wayne Atwell led the
Hornets scoring with six
' points. Atwell drained two
three-point baskets in the
loss. Rodney Brown netted
three points with Mel
Jones, Hunter Hewett and
Kel Blakely scoring two
points each. Raines West
led all scores with his 13
points.
Lafayette held a 6-3 lead
after the initial quarter but
could only score one field
goal in the second periodd.,
to trail 11-9 at the half.
Blakely scored underneath
the basket for the Hornets
to begin the third quarter
and his basket tied the
game at 11-11. A 10-2 run
gave the visitors a 21-13
lead after three quarters.
Each team struggled offen-
sively in the fourth quarter
S as Raines held on to turn
back the host Hornets.

of the third period, the
Tigers got baskets from
Cam Cross and Casey Loy
for the 20 point advantage.
But the wheels started
coming off for the Tigers
mid way of the third quar-
ter as the Hornets started
pressing and double team-
ing the ball. Frustration set
in as pressure showed for
the Tigers against the Hor-
nets defense. In eight pos-
sessions, the Tigers turned
the ball over seven times.
Of the seven turnovers,
Lafayette scored off six of
them. Lafayette outscored
the Tigers 15-0 to make it a
41-37 game. Only Mathis


desperation three-pointer
at the buzzer to end the
third period kept the
Tigers in front 44-37 head-
ing into the fourth period.
Cross' lay in to start the
final stanza staked the
Tigers to a 46-37 lead with
over six minutes to play.
Again the Hornets defense
arose to the challenge and
roared back allowing the
Hornets to go on a 13-0
run that netted them a 50-
48 lead, their first lead of
the game. Junior forward,
Joey Watson, ignited the
Hornets run with by tak-
ing a nice assist from Jamal
Reid and scoring under-
neath. Sellers two free
throws made it a 48-41

effort. "We played well at
Branford and it has car-
ried over. We are playing
better. I am pleased and I
feel like we are improv-
ing."
A 7-0 run to start the
third quarter by the Hor-
nets netted them a 33-15
lead and they were never
challenged from that
point. Fleming scored un-
derneath, Sellers hit a
jumper and Bell drilled a
trey for the lead. The Hor-
nets defense held the
Tigers to two field goals in
the third period in taking
a 42-22 lead. Brown took
charge late in the third pe-
riod and scored six of his
teams next nine points.
Trenton made a run late
in the third period but
never could get any closer
than 14 points. In the
fourth quarter, with the
bench in the game, Devore
drilled a three-point bas-
ket that gave the final
margin of 55-29. Coach
Harris said he hopes the
trend of his team will con-
tinue as they face three
district opponents. "We
have Trenton, Bell and
Bronson next week and
we will see how far along
we have come," said Har-


ris. The JVHornets lost to
Bell earlier in the season.
Coach Harris said his
team is still in the learning
stage but seems to be buy-
ing into the system on
how to play the game.
"Maybe we are about to
convince them the more
they spread the ball
around they will get it
back and get their shots,"
he said. "Our guards do a
good job for us."
Schmitz led Trenton
with his eight points and
six of those came in the
opening period. Outside
of Schmitz, the Tigers
struggled to score. Pelfrey
and vila finished with six
points each for the Tigers.
McElvey scored four
points.
Hornet fans could see
the younger Hornets
growing and getting bet-
ter and headed in the
right direction. Certainly
the play of Brown, an
eighth-grader, will en-
hance the offense for the
Hornets. But against Tren-
ton it was a total team ef-
fort as the younger Hor-
nets rolled to their third
consecutive win.
"It was a good win for
us and we are going in the
right direction right now,"
said Coach Harris.

game and Reid followed
with a three-point basket
that came from a shot that
resembled the one-hand
push shot of years gone by.
The trey made it a 48-44
game. Sellers hit the first of
two technical foul free
throws. On the miss sec-
ond try it was Watson who
waded in among the others
players and pulled down
the offensive board for the
Hornets.
Fittingly, Watson took a
nice pass from Sellers and
scored underneath, was
fouled and completed the
three-point play to tie the
game at 48-48. Sellers short
jumper with 3:44 to play
gave the Hornets their first
lead at 50-48. The game
would not have been as
close as the final score had
the Hornets been able to
finish inside and hit some
key free throws down the
stretch.
Trenton tied the game at
50-50 before Watson's free
throw gave Lafayette a 51-
50 lead with 1:52 to play.
The Tigers had possession
of the ball but in running a
play Loy was whistled for
an illegal block giving the
ball back to the Hornets.
Cross was called for an in-
tentional foul on Sellers
who hit both charity tosses
for a 53-50 margin. After
Sellers missed the second
of two free throws, again,
Watson came up with a big
offensive board for the
Hornets.
On the possession, Sell-
ers went to the free throw
line again this time missing
both attempts. On an ensu-
ing tie up, the possession


arrow pointed Lafayette's
way. However, the Hor-
nets would turn the ball
over with, 43 seconds left to
play. Following a Tiger
timeout, Cross drove the
middle for an easy basket
to narrow the margin to
two, 54-52. With time tick-
ing away the Tigers had to
put the Hornets on the
line. It was Eric McIntyre
who would be the shooter
where he connected on'
two of four attempts sand-
wiched between a Tiger
basket to make it a 56-54
game with only nine sec-
onds left to play.
In a good move by
Coach Garland, he chose to
foul the Tigers with Tren-
ton not in the bonus as of
yet. The move took four
seconds off the clock. The
sixth foul came with :01.6


on the clock and the Tigers
with the ball under their
own basket. The ball came
into Mathis who immedi-
ately turned and shot the
ball that fell short. But the
Hornet fans held their
breath as Watson was
whistled for the foul on
Mathis when the clock ex-
pired. '
Coach Garland said the
goal of the Hornets coming
out of the locker room at
the half was to get the
game in single digits. "We
were to go from there," he
said. "The defense ignited
our offense. I feel like our
team showed a lot of heart
tonight. Earlier in the year
we may have folded. I am
really proud of them."
Josh Scott led the Hor-
nets scoring with his 16
points on a solid night


both offensively and de-
fensively. Shyler Morgan
added 15 points with
McIntyre scoring eight
points. Watson netted six
while Joseph Edwards fin-
ished with five points.
Sellers and James Dees
had four and two points
respectively.
Sellers had seven assists
for Lafayette in a strong
floor game. Reid had four
assists to go with his five
rebounds. Watson led the
Hornets rebounding with
eight. Edwards finished
with five boards. Stellers
had four steals for
Lafayette and Edwards
had three.
Cross and Loy led Tren-
ton with 17 points each.
Mathis finished with nine
points and Marc Waugh
tossed in seven.

It was all Lafayette ..

set of the game. Land
scored 13 points in the
opening quarter and
scored the first nine for the
Lady Hornets as Lafayette

two treys in the first stanza
in scoring seven points in

Coach Blankenship went
to his bench early and of-
ten in trying to balance the
contest. "I was happy with
the way we played coming
back," he said. "We got af-
ter people. We made some
good plays. It was a good
district win for us."
But was the Lafayette
coach happy with his
team's overall perfor-
mance. "We have so much
more to do in getting
ready for the tournament
and hopefully the play-
offs," he said. "We have the
time here in the next few
weeks to perfect some
things. I am just happy

with what we done
tonight."
Lilli Prine got the start in
the place of injured senior
Marla Alcazar. Prine hit a
couple nice baseline
jumpers in scoring her six
points. Prine gave the
Lady Hornets a lift around
the paint in stopping the
inside game of the Lady
Tigers. Alcazar is confi-
dent that she will be able
to return by tournament
time. "I may be able to
come back when we play
North Florida," she said. "I
have to have my foot ex-
amined that same day.
Hopefully, they will let me
play then. But I will be
ready by tournament
time."
Land is one of those
players who makes her
teammates to look good. In
the second quarter she
connected with Ana Mon-
roy on a nice pass inside
that Monroy scored on. On
a no look pass she hit
Prine who got the easy
basket.
Coach Blankenship said.
the important thing for his
team right now is keeping
focused on the district
race. "We want to keep a
foot hold on the district


and keep these district op-
ponents down. We want to
play with a lot of intensity
like we did tonight."
The Lafayette coach
wanted to avoid talking
about the blowout but rea-
soned that keeping his
team ready to play is the
important thing. "We don't
worry about the score," he
said. "We just want to go
out and play every game
with the intenstiy that we
need to. When we end up
running into teams like
Hawthorne,.P.K. Yonge
and teams like that we will
be ready to play. We seem


to be doing a better job
this year, no matter who
we are playing, bringing
the intensity with the
game." Most teams let
down in intensity when
the score is so one-sided.
Coach-Blankenship said he
wanted his team.to play
with a lot of intensity re-
gardless of who they are
playing.
"Usually with a weak
opponent we want to take
the night off," he said. "But
this year we have not done
that. Hopefully that is go-
ing to help as we get ready
for the playoffs."

Tax tips to save you money


Many people anxiously
await the arrival of
spring, a welcome respite
from winter weather
thanks to its moderate cli-
mate and the rebirth of
wildlife and foliage.' But
while spring does usher
in bluer skies, it also
marks the arrival of April
15, otherwise known as
Tax Day.
Whether you're used to
getting money back or
giving it up in droves,
chances are you want to
find more ways to pay
less during the year and
possibly increase what
you get back once the
mercury starts rising this
spring. Fortunately, the
Internal Revenue Service
offers plenty of lesser-
known deduction options


that might be part of your
everyday life.
Deduct gasoline costs.
Escalating gas costs un-
derstandably have many
people concerned. But the
amount you drive might
actually help you when
tax time comes. While the
rate changes each year, in
2005 the mileage rate for
business users was 40.5
cents per mile. Consult
the IRS or your tax pre-
parer if you use your ve-
hicle solely for business
purposes. It's a good idea
to save gas receipts as
well, both to get an accu-
rate total of what you can
deduct and in the unfor-
tunate instance you ever
find yourself the subject
of an audit by the IRS.
Deduct based on the


car you drive. Hybrid
cars are not eligible for
the electric vehicle credit,
but might be eligible for a
clean fuel deduction. This
is a one-time deduction
per vehicle (so if you've
used it already and still
own the same vehicle,
you're ineligible) and is
greatly limited to distinct
makes and models, which
have included the 2005
Ford Escape and the 2001-
05 Toyota Prius. While
the deduction for certified
vehicles was once $2,000,
in 2006 the IRS will only
grant a $500 deduction.
In addition to fuel-
burning deductions, SUVs
used for business purpos-
es (not including a daily
commute) might be eligi-
ble for a depreciation de-


duction. Again, it's best
to consult the IRS or a tax
preparer to see if you
qualify.
Work from home de-
duction. If you have a
home office that is used
strictly for work, you can
deduct the cost of home-
office expenses. For in-
stance, a personal com-
puter you buy and use for
business can be deducted.
However, if your son or
daughter uses that PC to
do his or her homework,
you're no longer allowed


to deduct the cost of the
computer. Other expens-
es, such as rent, insur-
ance, mortgage interest,
and utilities might also be
deductible depending on
your situation.
Charity pays off. In
addition to being able to
deduct monetary dona-
tions to charity, vehicles
donated to charity can
also be deducted. When
donating a car to charity,
you're entitled to deduct
the fair market value of
the/vehicle on your tax re-

AROUND THE CLOCK

FAMILY FEATURES

Got a minute?
You're just in time to learn how small adjustments to your daily routine may add up to improved health and a
more balanced lifestyle. With the start of a new year, examine your personal profile and pinpoint opportunities
where better-for-you changes can be made. Whether you'd like to shape up or slim down, the key is making
smarter choices and finding real solutions that can bring about positive results.
Before you know it, you'll be eating better, feeling better and living better, explained Dr. Bob Amot, who has
served as chief medical and health correspondent for national news shows. For example, exercise should be
compared to play not a chore. "I've always advocated fun sports, such as walking, golfing or biking, as the
best way to stay fit," said Arnot, also a best-selling author. "I find biking the single best sport for keeping in
shape because from day one, you put in as much time and distance as you want. It's also friendly to the joints."
Another timely tip: bookmark a favorite online resource that offers a refreshing perspective and a dose of
inspiration. A top pick is www.EatBetterAmerica.com, which features simple tips on eating better, the benefits
of doing so and recipes to get started. Good nutrition, Amot notes, not only plays a role in weight management,
it can also have a big impact on reducing risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes.

One Doctor's Rx for

Eating Better, Feeling Better.
Dr Bob Amot, experienced medical journalist and best-selling author, offers his top
Three personal tips for better health:
First Things First: Breakfast is my favorite meal hands down. I still start with a
whole grain cereal, such as my childhood favorite Wheat Chex, slice a banana on it,
throw in some blueberries and douse it in ice-cold soymilk. I tell patients breakfasts
are free ... meaning this meal won't add inches to your waistline, but it will give.
you the energy to help fuel your morning. And, choose cereals with lots of fiber to
help fill you up and get you off to a healthy start. What if your kids won't eat adult
cereals? Look for kids' cereals made with whole grain; they provide many essential
nutrients in addition to the health benefits of whole grain.
Chill: Fresh vegetables are often perceived as the healthiest choice. However,
within,hours after harvest, nutrients begin to disappear. And, during the week-long
trip from the fields to the grocery store, a significant amount of nutrients can be
lost. What's the solution? Today, food companies literally freeze fruits and vege-
tables within hours of being picked to retain
valuable nutrients. In fact frozen fruits and
vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh. I
stock my freezer with corn, broccoli, green
beans, blueberries and raspberries. They taste
as fresh as if I just picked them myself.
Enjoy Soy: Soy is a super healthful food
I enjoy every day. Using it in my cereal
bowl at breakfast, or in a smoothie, is great
because it delivers a low-fat, naturally cho-
lesterol free protein great for heart health. If
I'm in a hurry arid need instant nutrition, I'll
grab a glass of soymilk. Substituting soymilk
for whole milk may help lower my choles-
terol level. And, like many adults'with some
degree of lactose intolerance, I use soymilk
as a terrific replacement for milk and a great
way to get added calcium tohelp reduce my
risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Dr. Bob Arnot

"If you make one change to your health routine," said Arnot, "make
breakfast a must." He recommends cereal made with whole grain
topped with fruit ahd ice-cold skim or soymilk.

Eating portion-controlled snacks between meals

important nutrients you may not get otherwise.

Pop open a can of ready-to-serve soup, heat and enjoy with a sandwich
for a satisfying lunch or dinner. Many canned soups clock in around
100 calories per serving. Look for reduced sodium varieties, such as
Progresso, if salt intake is a concern. Choosing heart-healthy reduced
sodium soups can help with weight management and help decrease
risk for disease.

Royal Ballet Principals and




Soloists at Phillips Center Jan. 27


Andrew Ward, former
Royal Ballet dancer and
soloist of Boston Ballet,
has invited Principals and
Soloists of the Royal Ballet
to join him in presenting a
special gala evening of
dance at the Phillips Cen-
ter in Gainesville Satur-
day, Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m.
The gala evening will of-
fer the opportunity to sa-
vor the elegance and pas-
sion of a well-known art
form by star dancers from
one of the world's pre-
miere ballet companies.
Those familiar with the
well-loved ballets will be
able to relish old favorites,
while those new to the
genre will get a taste of the
very best. The company
will also present the world
premiere of a new work by
one of the Royal Ballet's
most exciting young
choreographers, Liam
Scarlett.
The Royal Ballet is
renowned for having a
repertoire that ranges
from classical three-act
ballets to vibrant and stim-
ulating works of modern
choreographers such as
George Balanchine,
William Forsythe, Ken-
neth MacMillan, Twyla
Tharp and Christopher'
Whleedon.
Based at the Royal
Opera House, Covent Gar-


-- ii'

9vsf


den, the Royal Ballet is
Great Britain's most pres-
tigious ballet company.
Led by Director Monica
Mason, the 83-member
troupe is reaching a new
artistic and technical peak
with talented dancers at
all levels in its ranks. The
company's wide-ranging
repertoire showcases the
great classical ballets
alongside new works by
the foremost contempo-
rary choreographers of the
day.
The ballet owes it exis-
tence of the vision of
Dame Ninette de Valois,
dancer, choreographer
and entrepreneur, who as-
sembled a small company
and school at Sadler's
Wells Theatre, which pro-
vided the growing compa-
ny a home from 1931-1939.
After touring throughout
the war years, the compa-
ny transferred to the Roy-
al Opera House, re-open-
ing Covent Garden after
its war-time closure.
The Royal Ballet sealed
its international reputation
with its first performance
in New York in 1949, and
it continues to perform
worldwide under its pre-
sent leadership. The ballet
celebrated its 75th an-
niversary on May 15, 2006
, with a recreation of its
very first full-length ballet,


ioyal Ballet dancer


The Sleeping Beauty.
Andrew Ward has pro-
duced several galas in the
UK for the late Princess of
Wales. Bon in Bucking-
hamshire, England, he
trained at the Royal Ballet
School from 1970-78, win-
ning the International Bal-
let Competition, Prix de


Lausanne in 1976. He
joined the Royal Ballet,
Convent Garden, in 1978,
where he danced in all the
major classics including
soloist roles such as Flo-
restan in Dame Ninette de
Valois's production of
Sleeping Beauty, the Three
Dancing Gentleman in


MacMillan's Manon and
the Pas de Trois in Gloria.
Mr. Ward has appeared
in numerous TV produc-
tions, created roles in
works by Kenneth
MacMillan, Rudolf
Nureyev and Jerome Rob-
bins and was chosen by
Frederick Ashton to ap-
pear in Rhapsody along-
side Mikhail Barvshnikov.
In 2003, he created Dance
Forward, a dance promo-
tion company. He made
his international debut, to
much acclaim, as a direc-
tor at the 2003 Bermuda
Festival with A Gala
Evening of Dance with
artists of the Royal Ballet.


In addition to the world
premiere work by Scarlett;
the Principals and Soloists
of the Royal Ballet will

copations.

Gatorland once again


welcomes visitors


Ever felt the need to
wrestle an alligator?
How about getting up-
close and personal with
a colorful and danger-
ous snake? Or touch
and feed a gentle deer?
You can do it all at one
of Orlando's most
unique attractions -
Gatorland!
A longtime favorite of
Orlando visitors, Gator-
land recently re-opened
its doors after surviving
a fire in early November
that destroyed the
park's iconic main en-
trance, gift shop and ex-
ecutive offices
While guests once en-
tered the attraction
through the gaping jaws
of a giant alligator, a
newly designed rustic


entrance gate has been
added that reflects the
park's old-fashioned
Southern charm. Once
inside the park, you will
enjoy the same high-en-
ergy thrills that have
made Gatorland a fami-
ly favorite for 57 years.
The 110-acre (44.5-
hectare) theme park and
wildlife preserve fea-
tures thousands of alli-
gators and crocodiles
along with birds and
even a petting zoo. All
exhibits and show areas
are open and function-
ing.
Plan to add a little au-
thentic alligator action
to your next Orlando
vacation with a visit to
Gatorland. www.gator-
land.com.

Take

Heart


- mr~ rr~iu (


Carbs may be worse for the hea


For years, people watching their
weight or attempting to stay heart-
healthy operated under the
assumption and guidance from
dieticians that fat was worse for
their hearts and'weight than
carbohydrates. However,
conventional wisdom just may
have been incorrect, as recent
reports indicate the opposite.
In late 2006, researchers at the
Harvard School of Medicine
revisited the controversy regarding
fats, carbs and heart health, spurred
on.by the belief that low-carb diets,
such as the popular Atkin's Diet,
couldn't possibly be healthy. What
they have found just may shock
those who thought baked potatoes
were better than slabs of cheese. A
study published in the New
England Journal of Medicine
looked at the relationship between
low-carbohydrate dieting and heart
disease risk in more than 80,000
women assessed over 20 years. The
results found that low-carb eating
was not associated with an
increased risk of heart disease.
After coming to these conclusions,
researchers further delved by
assessing the relationship between
heart disease risk and something
known as the 'glycemic load' of a
diet. Glycemic load is measured by

S, joy. Now, I know
1 Fl all of us desire to be
Content and happy
in our lives. Joy
sounds like what
k everyone in the world
needs. In the Bible we
Spread about that joy in Isa-
iah 55:12 "For ye shall go
out with joy, and be lead forth
With peace: the mountains
and the hills shall break forth
Before you into singing, and all
the trees of the field shall clap
their hands."
As you go into the new year, will
you feel the joy of the Lord, will you
feel like singing, will you be full of joy?
You can be filled with abundant joy
throughout the year, whatever your cir-
cumstances in your life may be, if you
learn to really trust in God. I know,
many people worry about what the
new year may hold for them and their
loved ones. Others may be looking in great
anticipation for some great event planned in
this coming year. All of us who are alive on
New Year's Day have been blessed with a
new year!
God wants us to go into this new year with
courage and joy as we allow Him to lead us.
He says Be of good courage, and He shall
strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the
Lord." Psalms 31:24 Will we allow God to
give us a Joy filled year and be full of His

I new year
year, or will we allow the enemy and circum-
stances in our lives to rob us of God's hope,
and His wonderful joy? What we do with this
year is up to us, will we follow our own path,
someone else's path, or God's path? We find
clear direction in Proverbs 3:6 "In all thy
ways acknowledgeHim, and He shall direct
thy paths."
This is a time when people make so called
"New Year's Resolutions" and make lots of
promises they will probably not keep. You
know, things like loosing weight, exercising
everyday, making lots of money, paying off all
their bills, never complaining, stopping some
bad habit and so many more. Now there is
nothing wrong with trying to improve one-
self. As a matter fact, that is a good thing.
The problem is most people do not keep
their "New Year's Resolutions" very long.
A much better way to head into the new
year, one that will bring about a very blessed
year filled with joy, is to pray for God to lead
you in His paths. Ask God to show you what
He would like you to change, what He would
have you to do, and how He would have you
live during 2007. God says in Psalms 32:8 "I
will instruct thee and teach thee in the way
which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with
Mine eye." The more time you take to talk to
God, the more you will understand all the
good things He has planned for you and your
family. The best thing you can promise to do
this year is to read God's word more, because
it really is God speaking to you,.and.espeial-
ly to get alone with the Lord and-pray. Prayer
truly is the key to heaven, and God truly does
answer prayer. "He shall call upon me, and I
will answer him..." Psalms 91:15 When you
take time to talk to God, He really is listening
to you and He hopes you will take time to be
still before Him and listen for His still small
voice to speak to you. Take some time to tell
Him you love Him, thank Him for what you
do have, the blessings in your life. When we
are thankful for what we have, then God will
bless us with more blessings. "Call unto me,
and I will answer thee, and shew thee great
and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
Jeremiah 33:3
You see God wants to answer your prayers,
He wants to meet your needs, He really cares
about you and your family, He wants to make
your life a JOY filled life. I pray that 2007 will
be a year for you to experience the wonder-
ful Joy of the Lord in your life!

A JOYfilled new year


By Aunt Pam
Can you kids believe that it is a
new year already? Wow! 2007! I
bet you are wondering what this
year will be like, what all you will
get to do, how you will do in
school, where you might get to
go on a trip, what you will get


for your next birthday. Maybe
you worry about what might hap-
pen to you or someone you care
about, you might wonder what it
will be like to be a year older.
A new year is a blessing from
God.

JOY filled life? Joy means to be
happy and content. As you are
going into this new year, do you
feel that joy of the Lord, are you
full of joy? You can be filled with
lots of joy throughout the year,
no matter what might happen, if
you learn to really trust in God.
What we do with this year is up
to us.Will we follow our own
path, someone else's path, or
God's path? We find the answer
in the Bible in Proverbs 3:6 "In
all thy ways-acknowledge Him,
andHe shall direct thy paths."
That means in everything you do,
be sure to ask God to guide you
and He will.
Have you ever heard people
making "New Year's Resolutions"
and lots of promises they will
probably not keep. Maybe you
have even made some. You know,
things like never complaining,
making good grades in school,
helping more around your
house, stopping some bad habit,
and so many more. Now, all of
those are good things to try to
do, but the problem is, most of

A much better way for you to
go into the new year, a way that

paths. Ask God to show you what
He wants you to do in 2007. God
wants to show you how you can
have a Joy filled new year. Take
time to talk to God, then you will
understand all the good things
He has planned for you and your
family. The best thing you can
promise to do this year is to read
God's word the Bible, or have
someone read it to you. It really
is God speaking to you. The
Bible tells us we can all talk to
God no matter how old we are.
"He shall call upon me, and I will
answer Him..." Psalms 91:15 You
see God wants to answer your
prayers, He wants to be your best
friend and help you always. He
really cares about you and your
family, he wants to make your life
a JOY filled life. I pray that 2007
will be a JOY filled year for all of
you kids!


T .he end of the year is always a good
time to reflect on our spiritual
progress. Are you a kinder, more loving
person now than you were last year at
this time? How are you doing in terms of
virtues like patience, temperance, and humility?
If you are going to set moral or spiritual goals
for next year, and we all should, itihelps to do
so in a systematic manner and avoid such va-
garies as "just wanting to be a better person."
After all, who doesn't want to be a better per-
son? One of the best models for improving
yourself is the system which Ben Franklin
adopted a a young man. First, he set about con-
sidering what the primary virtues were. Then,
after considerable study and reflection, he com-
piled a list of thirteen virtues, which were as
follows: temperance, silence, order, resolution,
frugality, industry, sincerity, justice, moderation,
cleanliness, tranquility, chastity, and humility.
He then resolved to work on each virtue, one at
a time, spending a week on each one. He kept
a log of his progress in a little book in which he

could place a mark for
each action which he con-

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
Three years ago I was the one who
wanted a puppy. Despite my wife's
hesitation, we got one. Now I realize
that I had no idea how much work it
would be. This dog had energy. She
needed multiple walks every day just
to try and tire her out. However, it
still wasn't enough as she proved by
chewing the corners off our end
tables. It's been three years and our
dog still has that energy, but at least
now she's well trained. This time
though, the tide has turned. My wife
saw an ad for a small two-year-old
Beagle, named Barney, who needs a
home. Now she wants to adopt this
dog. But I just replaced the end
tables. I love dogs, but I .
don't know if this is a good .jl
idea. How can I tell if I'm
ready for another
four-legged friend?

Cash: Well, if you have a new set
of end tables, it sounds like you're all
prepared!
Carry: Deciding on a second dog can
be a big step. It's nice to think about
two wagging tails that can greet you at
the door when you come home, but you
also have to consider the training
involved to keep them from chewing


your tables.
Cash: Believe it or not, it's a good
thing that your first dog had so much
energy. It may have forced you to work
on training the dog more diligently.
Even though the end tables may have
been sacrificed in the process, it sounds
like both you and the dog turned out
okay.
Carry: Considering a Beagle as a
second dog may be a good idea since
the breed tends to be a little calmer.
And now that you're experienced in
training, the process may be easier for
you.
Cash: It may be easier for the new


SName Dropping


7 .7


dog as well. Dogs often pick up habits
from other dogs faster than they do from
people. So having one dog that is well
behaved can help expedite the training.
Carry: Determining if you're ready
for a second dog is something only you
and your wife can decide. It's important
to realize that although they may keep
each other company, the dogs will prob-
ably want your attention most of all.
Therefore, it is very important that you
dedicate time and energy to spend with
them.
Cash: Although to play it safe, you
may want to put your new end tables in
storage for a few months.

Picking the right name for your dog
can be tricky. If you're having trouble,
try taking the dog's breed or tempera-
ment into account. For example, for
large dogs that have a dominating per-
sonality, a.sharp, snappy name is best.
Names with a strong consonant, like Rex
or Kiki, may help you keep control. For
smaller breeds that are quick or have a
nervous temperament, try a soothing
name with a soft consonant. Names like
Fifi or Bugsy may help keep them calm.
Snoop-Dog
Charles Shultz created Snoopy, the
famous beagle from the comic strip,
Peanuts, on October 4, 1950. Snoopy
was said to have come from the Daisy
Hill Puppy Farm. Although it was often
stated that he came from a litter of seven
puppies, only five were ever mentioned

in the strip. Throughout the years, Shultz
introduced Snoopy's other siblings: his
brother Spike was the most frequent;
Belle was his only sister; Marbles was
the smart one of the litter and Olafand
Andy were shown living together on a
farm. While the comic strip is no longer
written, it lives in syndication every week.

Got a question or funny story? Call toll-free at
(888) 242-3644 or write to: P.O. Box 8246,
New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Frisky
I'm a real sap when it comes to
dogs, but I realize they can be a lot of
work. However, when I saw an ad
for a 6-month-old Chocolate Lab, I
had to call. He sounded perfect, with
one exception.
The ad clearly stated that the dog
was EXTREMELY energetic.
Concerned, but not deterred, I called
the ad and spoke with a middle-aged
man about the dog. He told me that
the lab was very friendly, but did
require a lot of hands-on training that
he couldn't do.
As we continued talking I asked,
"Is he housebroken?"
With a deep sigh the man replied,
"Well, he's broken just about every-
thing in my house."
(Thanks to Cindy J.)




Is this a "stud" service
or a dog wash?

(Family Features) Take advantage
of the cooler weather and
reacquaint yourself with the
delights of a classic oven favorite -
stuffed peppers. The savory aroma
wafting from the kitchen as they
bake is sure to bring the family
running to the table.
Perfect for a weeknight meal,
Classic Beef-Stuffed Peppers are big
on flavor but simple in preparation.
Total hands-on time is only 15
minutes, and you don't even have
to precook the ground beef. Just
combine the beef, rice and
seasonings, then stuff the peppers.
Top with chunky tomato sauce and
pop them into the oven. While the
peppers are baking, toss together a
simple green salad for a wholesome
and easy dinner.
Remember, when mixing ground
beef,,nix lightly but thoroughly -
over mixing can result in a firm,
compact texture after cooking. Also,
cook ground beef mixtures to
medium (1600F) doneness, using an
instant-read thermometer to verify
the temperature.

CLASSIC BEEF-STUFFED PEPPERS
Total preparation and cooking time:
1-1/2 hours
Makes 4 servings


4 medium red, green or yellow
bell peppers
1 14 1/2-ounce can diced
tomatoes, drained
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
3 1 tablespoons chopped fresh
parsley, divided
pound ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup cooked white or brown
rice, cooled
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 / 2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black
pepper
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


Heat oven to 4000F. Cut tops off
bell peppers; remove seeds and
membranes. Place peppers upright
in 8-inch square baking dish,
cutting thin slice off bottoms of
peppers to stabilize, if necessary.
Combine tomatoes, tomato sauce
and 1 tablespoon parsley in large
bowl. Remove and reserve 1 cup
tomato mixture. Combine ground
beef, onion, rice, remaining 2
tablespoons parsley, Worcestershire
sauce, garlic, salt and black pepper
with remaining tomato mixture in
bowl, mixing lightly but
thoroughly.
Spoon beef mixture evenly into
peppers. Top with reserved tomato
mixture. Cover baking dish with
aluminum foil.
Bake at 4000F for 30 minutes.
Uncover baking dish; continue
baking 3,4 minutes toamedium
(1600F) doneness, until beef is not
pink in center and juices show no
pink color. Garnish with parsley, if
desired.
Cook's Tip: Due to the natural
nitrate content of certain
ingredients such as onions, celery
and bell peppers, ground beef may
remain pink even when a 160F
internal temperature has been
reached. Always verify the internal
temperature with a meat
thermometer or instant-read
thermometer to be certain it reaches
1600F.

(Family Features) Whether
you're a student going off to
live on campus or a newlywed
taking on new responsibilities,
washing clothes may be a job
responsibility you are taking on
for the first time. By following a
few simple, tips supplied by the
experts at GE, you can earn an
"A" in Laundry 101.
Sorting Sort laundry into
loads that can be washed
together. Combine large and
small items in a load. Load large
items first. Large items should
not be more than half the total
wash load. Most washing
machine manufacturers suggest
that you not wash single items,
as this may cause an out-of-
balance load. Add one or two
similar items to the load. Sort
laundry into loads that can be
washed together such as:
Colors: whites, lights, darks
Soil: heavy, normal, light
Fabric: delicates, easy care,
sturdy cottons
Lint: lint producers, lint
collectors
Preparing the Wash Pre-
treat spots, stains and heavily
soiled items with a pre-wash
spot remover, a liquid detergent
or a paste made from granular
detergent and water. Many
newer washing machines offer a
pre-wash option. This provides
an extra wash before the main
wash. When selecting the pre-
wash cycle, use powder
detergent in the main wash
compartment. Many new model
GE washers also offer an extra
rinse cycle to remove excess dirt
and detergent from heavily
soiled loads.
Know the fiber content and '
finishes of fabrics so you can
select the proper water
temperature and cleaning
products. Simply check the care
information on the tags of new
clothes or look at the care labels
on many clothing items. Close
all zippers, hook all hooks and
button all buttons. Turn pockets
inside out to get rid of debris
and to find any loose change,
important notes or other
items in the pockets.
Selecting the Wash
Cycle The wash cycles
are optimized for specific
types of wash loads.
Check your washer use
and care booklet to help
you match the wash
setting with the loads. The
new GE front load
laundry pair delivers
energy and water savings
with the HydroMotion
wash system, which
rotates in two directions
for an exceptionally
efficient and thorough
clean. This GE washer has
a king-size washer basket "
and offers many cycles
including: whites,
colors/normal, stain
wash, easy care/perma
press, active wear, I
delicates, handwash,
woolmark for washable
wools, speed wash, drain m i
and spin, rinse and spin.
In addition, GE offers My I $
Cycle, which lets
consumers save a favorite 2u0
custom cycle.
Selecting the Dryer
Settings Do not overload $
the dryer; this will cause
uneven drying and 2
excessive wrinkling. *


Remove items from the
dryer as soon as it stops
and hang or fold them to 20
keep them from getting Sp
wrinkled. Keep the lint
filter cleaned. Read the $
care labels on your clothes

again; you'll find drying
instructions right there with the
washing suggestions. The GE
Profile front load dryer features


a king-size dryer drum along And Finally Once you've
with a super fast sensor-drying washed and dried your clothes,
system that automatically senses towels and linens, fold them,
