Prescription, OTC drug

abuse among teens


Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter

Like a Bloodhound hot
on a trail, Scott Hamlin
knows all about illegal
drugs and how to sniff
them out, whether on or
off school grounds. Ham-
lin is the School Resource
Officer for Lafayette Ele-
mentary, Lafayette High
School, and Lighthouse


Christian Academy.
At this time, according.
to Hamlin, there is no evi-
dence of any children
abusing prescription and
over-the-counter medica-
tions on school grounds
and throughout the county.
"This is not a problem in
our county at this time. It
is, however, a large scale
problem in other parts of
our country," Hamlin said.
Although the Lafayette


County Sheriffs Office -
has not faced this problem
yet, they are constantly
having to battle against il-
legal prescription drug use
among adults. Hamlin
cites Hydrocodone and
Percocet as two of several
types of prescription drugs
LCSO has uncovered.
"Prescription drugs have
been a problem in our

crash, one of whom is a res-
ident of Mayo, Larry Mc-
Cullers.
According to the report
Robert Holliday, the driver,
and McCullers, the passen-,
ger, were waiting in a 1993
Dodge pickup facing north-
bound to turn left onto a pri-
vate driveway from SR 51.
As they waited to make the
turn, Roy and Virginia Pow-
ers, also traveling north-,
bound, in a 2003 GMC pick-
up, approached them from
behind and failed to observe
the stopped vehicle, striking
Holliday in the rear of the
vehicle.
At the moment of impact,
as indicated in the report,


Holliday's vehicle rotated
clockwise and came to rest
in the northbound lane of SR
51 facing south. Powers' ve-
hicle rotated clockwise also,
overturned, and came to fi-
nal rest on the east shoulder
of SR 51 facing south.
The total amount of dam-
age to both vehicles was
$6,000. Roy Powers was
taken to Shands Live Oak
with minor injuries while
Virginia Powers was trans-
ported to Shands at the Uni-
versity of Florida with seri-
ous injuries. Holliday and
McCullers were not injured.
Holliday was charged
with careless driving, ac-
cording to the report,

King David had a pro-
found yearning to build a
dwelling for the Lord but
was not allotted the privi-
lege though he stockpiled
the materials that were
eventually used during the
construction of the temple
at Jerusalem. Later David's
son, Solomon, was extend-'
ed the honor of using the
materials accumulated by
David to build the magnifi-
cent edifice.
In the process of betom-
ing a Christian God takes
up residency in the individ-
ual's heart. The Christian
becomes, a "habitation" of
the Lord the temple of the
Lord (I Corinthians 6:19).
As a Christian you
should have a deep desire
to build a dwelling place
for the Lord. Moses said, I
will prepare Him a habita-
tion (Exodus 15:2). Chris-
tians should be perpetually
preparing that habitation!
You have nothing in com-
mon with this world (at
least you shouldn't). "ye
are the temple of the Living,
God; as God hath said, I
will dwell in them, and

walk in them; and I will be
their God, and they shall be
my people. Wherefore
come out from among
them, and be ye separate,
saith the Lord, and touch
not the unclean thing; and I
will receive you," (II
Corinthians 6:16-17).
Cast out the "dirt" and
prepare Him a HOME
(YOUR BODY) that will be
pleasing to Him.

Did You


Know?

If you are requesting
chocolate for Valentine's
Day you may want to direct
your sweetheart to pur-
chase the dark variety.
That's because dark choco-
late can actually be good for
you, in addition to tasting
delicious. Dark chocolate is
high in antioxidants, those
substances that can help
fend off diseases, It may
also help to lower blood
pressure.
However, milk may inter-.
fere with the proper ab-
sorption of antioxidants, so
don't wash it down with a
tall glass or mix, chocolates
if you want the full health
benefits. Though there's no
longer a need to feel guilty
when indulging in a piece,
remember moderation is
key.

The Saturday after
Thanksgiving proved to be
a perfect choice for the nup-
tials of Amanda Ward and
Matthew Wayne Walker.
The couple were married in
the gazebo at the home of
the groom's brother,
Thomas and Cheri Walker,'
in the Ephesus Community.
The bride is the daughter
of Eddie C. and Reba Brock
Ward of Mayo. The groom
is the son of Howard and
Carolyn Thomas Walker of
the Ephesus community.
Both of the newlyweds are
graduates of Lafayette High
School. Amanda is working
at the Lighthouse Realty
and Wayne is working with
his brother's Walker Farms.
The wedding was infor-
mal, with the men wearing
white, open-necked shirts
and khakis. Wayne's best
man was his brother,
Thomas. Heath Walker,
Devin Walker and Blake
Adams completed the
groom's entourage.
The bride, given in mar-


riage by her father, wore an
empire-style gown of ivory
georgette and carried a red
rose. The matron of honor,
Cheri Walker, and brides-
maid, Liz Ward, wore em-
pire-style gowns of aqua
georgette. Junior brides-
maids, Taylor Newbem and
Brooke and Anna Walker
wore white georgette gowns
with flowing scarves and
carried a white rose. Flower
girl Katie Newbem's gown
matched those of the junior
bridesmaids and Laila
Walker and Torri Soluri
wore white bouffant dress-
es. The three carried match-
ing baskets of rose petals.
The marriage was per-
formed by Rev. Jimmy Sim-
pler, of Verbena, Ala., broth-
er-in-law of the groom,
amid a gathering of rela-
tives and friends of the
bride and groom.
The wedding was fol-
lowed by a reception in the
yard where those attending
enjoyed a time of fellow-
ship.

After hearing the sound


and looking and


finding the little kitty was actually
ound that an older cat. The cat was
crying desperately for help
to get out o f a 50-56 foot
tree and he was O iet up.
That's when I decided to
call the volunteer fire de-
partment to come to the
escue of the cat. Will Ham-
lin picked up the line and
told me he could come. He
showed up in my yard
within 7 or 8 minutes. It
was around 5:30 when they
arrived, but they soon dis-
covered, their ladder was
not 50 feet tall. Hamlin con-
o ` zzl tacted L.D. (Little David)
son of David Tyre. He came
out in the Brae truck and
was able, to get into t'he
bucket which was half full
of water but he still got into
the bucket and after going
through rough branches'
which scratched him all
over, he managed to reach
the cat.,
The cat was frightened
and moved to the other
side of the tree. L.D. tried
to get the cat to move. The
cat finally. moved"down 10
feet, and so did L.D. By this
W time he barely had light to
even see the cat except for
my dad's flashlight which
was dimmin'g'because of


loss of batter power.
The sheriff showed up
before the' battery was
completely, gone in the-
flashlight. So, he'riff Car-
son McCall and Jeff Condy
arrived with a much bigger
light. Nobody had called
the sheriff, but they
showed up just as if we
had asked them to bring a
light. I guess we just got
lucky when they showed
up. L.D. could see a -whole
lot better.
When he went to grab
the cat with a b lanket
through the branches, the
cat was so frightened he
decided to jump to the
ground. He was still up in
the tree 40 feet but he
jumped to.the ground and
surprisingly landed on his
-feet. He began to run.
through the yard and then
the subdivision.
After L.D. got down out
of the bucket his feet were
soaked with water all'the
way above the ankles. We
told him and the sheriff,
thank you very much for
the help to get the little kit-
ty out of the tree. We took
pictures of L.D. and volun-
teer fire department work-
er, Will Hamlin beside the
sign of the Brae truck.
I just want to say thank
you to the Volunteer Fire
Department, Bra6 Incorpo-
rated, and the sheriff.

Land eclipses area record


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Junior Natalie Land ac-
complished a milestone in
her basketball career when
she scored her 2,556 point
of her illustrious career.
The milestone came against
Trenton Tuesday night.
With just over a minute to
play in the game Land
grabbed an offensive re-
bound and scored to break
the Area Regional scoring
record. The area includes
the North-Central Florida
area. The record was held
by Noreka Smith who
played for Union County.
Lafayette coach Jimmy
Blankenship knew she was
near the record and kept it
from her until the final two
minutes of the game. "I told'
her the at the beginning of


the fourth quarter get one
more basket and you will
break the record and then

,


you are coming out," he
said.
Land delayed her re-


moval from the game by
missing three attempts and
two free throws. "She


looked at me and said,
'why did you tell me?' I
should not have. told her,"
-' %. w,;:;.

LAFAYETTE JUNIOR NATALIE LAND broke the girls area scoring record against Trenton last week to become the new area leading
scorer with 2,556 points. She could become the areas top scorer including both boys and girls. "When I have the opportunity, I try to
do my best," she said. (photos by Ed Taylor)


said Coach Blankenship.
"She has had some good
teammates to help con-
tribute to what she has
done. You may say it is Na-
talie Land's feat but every
Lady Hornet that has
played has contribute to it."
Land has been a starter
since her seventh grade
year in school. Coach
Blankenship said he was
very pleased the way she
has performed. "It is pretty
amazing to what she has
accomplished in her basket-
ball career," said the
Lafayette mentor. "I am
very proud of her. She is
something else."
Land finished with 22'
points in the victory but
will always remember the
22nd point against Trenton.

make it six

straight
by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
After a horrible 0-6 start,
the Lafayette Hornets ju-
nior varsity basketball
team won their sixth con-
secutive game to even their
record at 6-6 on the season
with a 70-59 win over host
Bronson last Friday night.
The Hornets stingy man-
to-man defense was too
much for Bronson.
It was "The Kade Bell
Show" against Bronson as
the junior high player lit
up the scoreboard for 29
points draining five three-
point baskets. Devin Belle-
my added 13 points and he
drilled three treys for the
winners. Antwan Brown
chipped in with 12 points.
Lafayette held a slim 19-
14 lead at the first stop but
trailed at the half time
break, 36-34.'It was the.first
time the junior Hornets
trailed at the half in their
last six games. It did not
take long for the Bronson
to disappear as Coach
Mike Harris' Hornets came
out energetic at the start of
the second'half. The Hor-
nets stung the Eagles with
a 22-6 run that netted them
a 56-42 advantage after
three quarters.
Bronson narrowed the
margin to five points, 58-
53, early in the fourth quar-
ter but could get no closer.
Lafayette's defense caused
Bronson to turn the ball
over on five of their final
six possessions. Sellers
scored the final six points
for the Hornets by the

Joseph Edwards and
Jonathan Sellers combined
for 34 points in leading
coach Derek Garland's
ballclub to a 51-40 victory
over Bronson last Friday
night. Both Edwards and
Sellers tossed in 17 points
each.
While their offense
struggled it was the Hor-
nets defense that kept
Bronxson from repeating an
earlier game where they
posted a win over the Hor-
nets. It was by far the best
defensive outing of the
season for the .Iornets
who mixed their zone de-
fenses to keep Bronson off
stride. "Our guys really
played their roles," said
Coach Garland. "They did
not go out there and try to
do too much. They played
their assignments and that
is all we asked them to
do."
..It was in the third period
that Bronson had their
problems against the Hor-
nets defense. Coach Gar-,
land put his team in a zone
defense for the full game
mixing the zones at times.
"We wanted to keep them
out of the paint and make
them shoot it and that
worked. Luckily they did.
not hit from the outside."
Lafayette hit the boards
better than they did in the
first two quarters. The
Hornets defense held .
Bronson, a strong inside


team, to just one field goal
in the third period. "I want-
ed us to stay with the zone
because I knew that Bron-
son was a good "man" of-
fense. We struggled against
them in an earlier game.
We just wanted to make
sure we did not give them
any layups and we wanted
to earn everything."
A spurt of 14-6 in the
third period netted the
Hornets a 45-29 lead. Bron-
son got two free throws

Coach Mike Harris, junior
varsity coach at Lafayette
High School, has to like
the momentum his team
has shown of late The ju-
nior Hornets posted a 63-
32 win over visiting Bell
last week for their fifth
consecutive e win. "We are
pla-ing a lot better," he
said. "we're coming to-
gether and we're looking
for each other on the
floor."
Arthur Sellers led the
Hornets scoring with 20
points followed closely by
Kade Bell with 17.


The Hornets looked im-
pressive in the early min-
utes running out to a 23-
10 lead. Lafayette's de-
fense has been a key to
turning things around
this season and against
Bell it was no different.
Lafayette took a 46-20 half
time lead to the locker
room at the half.
Antwan Brown, just his
third game back, added
10 points for the Hornets
in the win.

road. Four players scored in double fig-

season and 7-0 in the district standings.
Junior guard Natalie Land tossed in a
game high 20 points in leading Lafayette,
12 of those came in the first period.
The score does not indicate the sluggish
start the Lady Hornets had against Bron-
son. They did not look as sharp as previ-
ous outings but Bronson was having diffi-
culty in finding the basket as well. The
Lady Hornets committed four turnovers
in the early going, something very un-
characteristic of a Blankenship coached
team. All he could do was just shake his

It took an extra period
but it would be the
Lafayette Hornets who
would come home with a.
thrilling 69-62 overtime
win over the Bell Bulldogs
at home last week. The
Bulldogs fought their way
back into the game after
trailing most of the game.
Lafayette came out with
the hot hand at the onset of
the game and established a.
15 point cushion before the
Bulldogs caught fire. Bell
cut the margin to 10 just
before the half. The Hor-
'nets took a 35-25 half time
lead to the locker room.
The game was tied at 61- .
61 after regulation play.
In the five minute over-
time, the hornets held the
Bulldogs to a single free
throw in outscoring them
8-1. Junior Jfnathan Sellers,
who finished-tke game
with 13 points, sored six
of those in the ovtime.
Four of those points-were
big free throws down th
stretch.

for their six points. Bron-
son has little success in
moving the ball into the
paint area and was forced
to try scoring from the out-
side. A difficult choice for a
team who likes to go in-
side.
The Hornets opened in
their 1-3-1 zone until Bron-
son drilled a couple of
treys. "We went to the 1-3-
1 so our guards would not
have to run as far. We used
our 2-3 zone to help out' re-
bounding," said Garland. "I
think we did a good job
mixing it up."
The two teams played to
a 15-15 tie at the end of the
first quarter. The Hornets
went up 5-0 and held a five
point lead twice. Two free
throws and a three-point
basket by Rivers tied the
game.
There were three lead
changes in the early going
of the second quarter with
Bronson's last lead at 18-17.
On a nice out of bounds
play, Eric McIntyre scored
and Edwards followed
with a short jumper that
gave Lafayette a 21-18 lead.

some questionable calls by
Sthe officials. "This team is
starting to grow up," said
the Hornets mentor. "They
are worrying only about
things they can control."
Lafayette build a 15
point lead in the fourth
quarter but struggled big
time from the free throw
line down the stretch. "Our
free throw shooting almost
got us again," said Gar-
land. "We also missed a
bunch of layups. That hap-
pens by the way we move
the ball. They are a very
unselfish team. If we keep
doing that the shots are go-
ing to fall." The Hornets hit
only 35 percent from the
charity stripe making six of
17 attempts.
Edward was a hand full
for Bronson throughout the
game. His slashing type of *
play and quickness kept
the Bronson defense guess-
ing most of the night.
Coach Garland said they
had counted on that. "We
knew earlier on that they
would have problems stop-
ping Jonathan," Garland
said. "We wanted to run


our offense through him to
open everything else up."
Sellers had an outstand-
ing floor game to gowith
his 17 points. His play at
the point guard position

fense. "Jonathan is doing a
great job for us. He is start-
ing to step and become
that leader we need.".
McIntyre finished with
seven points for the Hor-
nets but hit some big bas-
kets when the game was
closer. Jamal Reid, who
had strong defensive game
as well as working the
boards, finished with five
points. Jody Watson netted
just three points but pulled
in some big rebounds
when the Hornets needed
them. Sergio Perez had
two points.
The win improved
Lafayette to 6-9 on the sea-
son but more importantly
gave them sole possession
of second place in the dis-
trict with a 5-2 mark. The
win gave the Hornets and
outside chance of tying
Trenton for the district

with a convincing 56-39
win over visiting Trenton
last week Arthur Sellers
led the Hornets with 14
points. Antwan Brown

The game was never in
doubt from the onset as,
Lafayette rolled out to a
15-1 first quarter lead be-
hind the play of Sellers.
Sellers scored eight of his
14 points in the opening
quarter as the Hornets de-
fense held Trenton to just
a free throw in the first


eight minutes. Against the
Hornets defense, Trenton
turned the ball on their fi-
nal five possessions of the
first period.
Trenton got closer to
make it a 15-7 game by
scoring the first six points
of the second quarter. Avi-
la and Schwartz led the,
Trenton charge. Kade Bell
completed an old-fashion
three-point play with 4:06
to play for a 19-7 advan-
tage in the second quarter.
A 7-0 run closed out the
first half with the Hornets
holding a 26-10 half time
lead.
Fleming picked up the
scoring in the third quarter
for the Hornets with six of
his 10 points. He drained a
trey to make it a 32-14


game. The Hornets dou-
bled the score, 40-20, on a
basket by Fleming. The
Hornets led 43-20 after
three quarters.
Trenton came out firing

Simpler caps successful football season


Submitted
Celebrating a successful
2006 season, the Verbena
(Ala.) High School Red
Devils re-lived a year which
saw them improve from a 2-
8 2005 record to a rousing
9-4 year at their Dec. 4,
2006, football banquet. In a
four game run early in the
season, VHS out-scored
their opponents 170-8.
Kyle Simpler, son of Jim-
my and Sherry (Walker)
Simpler, formerly of Mayo,
was honored with the
school's Most Valuable
Player Award. Simpler,
carrying a 3.9 GPA, re-
ceived -the Academic
Award, as well as a Team
Captain plaque.
In their jamboree game,
Verbena's quarterback, Ja-
son Montgomery, broke his
collar bone and was unable


to play until the final regu-
lar season game. Simpler,
previously a receiver and
free safety, was called on to
fill the QB position. Verbe-
na head coach, Mike Harris
was hesitant about making
the move because Simpler
had never played the posi-
tion and was the team's
leading receiver. However,
on Tuesday following the
jamboree game, Harris put
Simpler under center and
he started the season open-
er that Friday night. He led
the team to a 6-0 start and
the team's first appearance
in the AHSAA top 10 poll
in a number of years.
On the season, Simpler
threw for 8 touchdowns,
had 9 rushing touchdowns
and also had 5 touchdown
receptions. Kyle complet-
ed 50% of his passes, aver-


aged 11.2 yards rushing,
and 7.7 yards per recep-
tion. Defensively, he led
the team in interceptions
with 11, and had 43 tackles
and 16 assists..
Simpler was recently
named to the All-Chilton
County Football Team for
2006. He and his twin sis-
ter, Keli (who has a 4. GPA
and plays basketball and
softball), were both nomi-
nated for the Wendy's Heis-
man award.
Kyle and Keli are the
grandchildren of Howard
and Carolyn Walker, of
Lafayette County, and often
come to visit their aunt,
Tambrey Newbern, their
uncles, Thomas (Cheri),
Heath (Stephanie) and
Wayne (Amanda) and their
cousins and extended fami-
ly in the area.

Land scores 29 in win over Bell


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Junior Natalie Land had
the Bell visitors thinking to
themselves "Land-sakes-
ave" after she scored 29
points against the Lady.
Bulldogs. The win allowed
coach Jimmy Blankenship
ballclub to remain unbeat-
en in district play and im-
proved to 16-1 overall af-
ter posting a 70-19 win last
Thursday night.


Sharonda Cherry had a
strong game finishing with
14 points to go with her
floor play. TaQuelia Mack-
lin finished in double fig-
ures with 12 points. Lillie
Prine netted 10 points as
she continues to fill in for
the injured Maria Alcazar.
Sunshine Reid, averaging
in double figures, had only
five points in the win.
Led by Land, the Lady
Hornets jumped out


quickly leading 22-3 after
the first quarter. It was
43-10 at the half. The
Lady Bulldogs had diffi-
cult in trying to solve the
Lafayette press.
Amy Ergle and Holli
Moore led Bell with six
points apiece.
Lafayette will face a
tough opponent in
Hawthorne this Saturday
night in a home en-
counter.

Lafayette scored the first
18 points of the first quar-
ter in going in front 20-3 at
the first stop. Sharonda
Cherry, who finished with
16 points in the win, had
seven first quarter points.
Land got into the act in the
second period with eight
points. Coach Blankenship
went to the bench early in
this one and often.
The Lady Hornets
opened rather sluggish at
the onset of the game.
Coach Blankenship said
that could have been the
Florida football Gators ,
fault. "I think some of them
stayed up and watched the


Florida-Ohio State game,"
he said. "Having already
beaten Trenton on Friday
night, that had a lot to do
with it. We played much
better the second half. We
got after it and looked bet-
ter."
Coach Blankenship said
it was another district win
for his ballclub. "That is
what you have to look at,"
he said. "Our district
games are what is impor-
tant to us." The Lady Hor-
nets remain unbeaten in
district play after improv-
ing to 15-1 on the season.
Their lone loss came to
North Florida Christian.
The Lady Hornets held a
59-11 edge entering the


fourth period. Coach
Blankenship had removed
his starters with the excep-
tion of Land, He knew she
was close to the area scor-
ing record. The record was
broken with just over a
minute to play in the game.
Land grabbed an offensive
rebound and scored on the
play: Coach Blankenship
congratulated her with a
hug. Land said she knew
the record was within
reach but did not know it
until the fourth quarter.
The Lady Hornets will
host Hawthorne this com-
ing Saturday night.
Lafayette defeated
Hawthorne by two points
earlier in the season.


Land


Continued From Page 6A

"This is the biggest accom-
plishment of my career so
far," said a humble Land. "I
am really happy about it.
Coach Blankenship did not
tell me until I was one bas-
ket away from the record.
Then he calls me over to
the side and tells me, 'you
have one more basket until
you break the record."'
Another record looms on
the horizon and the
Lafayette junior has a shot
at it before she moves on.
She may not accomplish it
this season but is surely to
reach it next year. The next
record is the boys and girls
record currently held by
Cornelius Ingram. Ingram
has just over 3,200 points
and the goal is very reach-
able yet this season. "I don't
know if she will get it this
year," said Coach Blanton.
"I am sure she will have it
next year."
"It is something to al-
ways keep in the back of
your mind," said Land on
the possibility of not reach-
ing the other milestone this


year. "Points is not some-
thing I think about every -
time I go out there. If I do
accomplish it that will be
great."
Like Coach Blankenship,
Land credits the play of her
teammates making such an
accomplishment possible.
"With them I could not
have done this," she said.
"Basketball is a team sport.
They gave me opportuni-
ties to make the points."
Land said if a person just
plays the game of basket-
ball like it is suppose to be
played opportunities will
present itself. "You have to
be unselfish out there," she
said. "The most important
thing is to win games.
When I do have an oppor-
tunity to score I just try
and do my best.
Land, who will be a se-
nior next season, hasn't a
college on her mind. "Right
now I am getting letters.
But I do not have a clue as
to where I will be going,"
she said. "I should have
some idea by this sum-
mer."
Land said while her


coach does not show much
emotions on the sidelines
he makes up for in prac-
tices. "He lets .us know
what we are doing wrong,"
she said. "But he also tells
when we are doing a good
job. He builds your confi-
dence up. When I was in
the seventh grade he built
my confidence up. You
have to have a coach like
that. He is a great coach!"
Land was quick to give
credit to her past team-
mates in seasons past for
their contributing to her
success. "Stacy Lewis was a
great teammate," she said.
"She gave an 150 percent
every time she went on the
floor. She was quick and
we ran the break well fo-
gether."
While the Lady Hornet
has reached one milestone
in her career, still one has
escaped her and she cer-
tainly would like to obtain
that one yet this season -- a
state championship. "That
would be the ultimate ac-
complishment," she said.
Who knows, maybe that
will come this season.

Hornets to extend the lead
back to 18 points. Bell nev-
er quit and chipped away
at the lead reducing the
margin to 11 points in the
third. With three minutes
to play in the fourth peri-
od, the Bulldogs tied the
game with just over three
minutes to play. The game
went back and forth the
rest of the regulation play
with a late basket by Bell
tying the game at 61-61.
Jonathan Edwards led all
scorers with his 20 points,
Eric McIntyre added 15
points that included three
three-point baskets.
"Jonthan played a good
game for us," said Coach
Garland. "He could had
more points but he missed
a bunch of easy baskets.


But he got it going early
for us. He got us off to our
quick start."
Edwards, who finished
10 of 13 from the charity
stripe, knocked down
some key free throws
down the stretch of the
fourth quarter.
Bell could only manage
the one point in the over-
time, but credit the Hor-
nets defense. "We really
played well defensively,"
Garland said. "We re-
bounded well."
The biggest turnaround
for the Hornets came in
taking care of the basket-
ball down the stretch. "We
took better care of the ball
and quit turning it over,"
said the Hornet mentor.
"They got back into the
game and got some easy
layups on us. Our defense

In the overtime Coach
Garland felt like his team
regain the aggressiveness
they had at the start of the
game. "We got a little pas-
sive the fourth quarter. But
in the overtime we came
out and was very aggres-
sive."
Joining Edwards and
McIntyre in double digit
scoring was Sellers who
finished with 13 points.
."Our scoring was bal-
anced," said Garland. "We
moved the ball well. Much
like the Trenton game, our
defense ignited our of-
fense. We did a great job
sharing the ball."
Jamal Reid just missed
double figures with his
nine points. Darren Powe
had a strong garhe and
netted five points. Josh
Scott, Kevin Waters and
.Joey Watson finished with
two points apiece. Sergio
. Perez had one point.
David Bailey topped
Bell's scoring with his 17
points. Trent Shepherd
drilled four three-pointers
to finish with 12 points.
Tyson Railey netted 15
points for the Bulldogs.
Lafayette improved to 5-
9 on the season and 4-2 in
district play.

Live Oak Beverage Barn celebrates 4 years in business


Staff
Clyde and Cheryl Evans,
owners of the Live Oak Bever-
age Barn, are celebrating four
years in business. The Live Oak
Beverage Barn is a drive- thru
convenience store. Owners
Clyde and Cheryl were intro-
duced to the concept of a drive-
through convenience store from
other areas of the country., The
idea was -to be the ultimate con-
venience store with true conve-
nience! Customers just drive
through and tell one of the
friendly employees what they
want from the large selection of
soft drinks, snacks and many
more treats and products.
After moving to Live Oak,
Clyde and Cheryl decided to
open up Live Oak's very own
drive-through convenience
store. The Live Oak Beverage
Barn has many products like:
milk, eggs, bread, chips, great
sweet tea, chili, soups and a
large variety of tobacco prod-
ucts at reasonable prices. What
Clyde and Cheryl enjoy most
about their business is meeting
new people, getting to know
their customers and learning
something new every day
about business.

CFO Sink announces nearly
$700,000 in homeland security
funds awarded to state bomb
team, laboratory
Alex Sink, the chief financial officer of Florida
and state fire marshal, announced today that the
Division of State Fire Marshal's Explosive Ordi-
nance Device (EOD) Unit and Forensic Labora-
tory have been awarded nearly $700,000 in
homeland security funds to buy equipment to
protect Florida communities.
"We can never let our guard down when it
comes to being prepared for a potential disaster,
whether natural or manmade," Sink said. "We
are committed to doing all we can to make sure
we are trained, equipped and ready, and I thank
the Department of Homeland Security for sup-
porting us in that."
The EOD unit, or bomb team, is part of the Bu-
reau of Fire and Arson Investigations, and its .-
members are trained to safely handle, transport,'
dispose of and investigate explosive or incendi-
ary incidents. The members also educate hun-
dreds of state, local and civilian personnel every
year. The bomb team is currently ranked num-
ber 12 in the nation for the number of calls re-
sponded to for all bomb teams and number two
in the nation for state government bomb teams.
The grant money will be used to buy a robot,
bomb suits and other equipment for the bomb
team as well as equipment for the division's Bu-
reau of Forensic Fire and Explosives Analysis,
which operates the state laboratory that sup-
ports fire and arson investigations.
The State Fire Marshal's Office has helped lo-
cal fire departments get more than $32 million in
homeland security funds for equipment and
training. The funds have helped local agencies
establish, train and equip 50 technical rescue
teams, seven urban search and rescue teams and
to better equip and train 28 existing regional
hazardous materials teams.
Homeland security funds also paid for the
placement of a permanent urban search and res-
cue training center at the Florida State Fire Col-
lege that is the only "post-blast" collapse simula-
tor providing fire and smoke conditions in the
United States.
As a statewide elected officer of the Florida
Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink over-
sees the Department of Financial Services, a mul-
ti-division state agency responsible for manage-
ment of state funds and unclaimed property, as-
sisting consumers who request information and
help related to financial services, and investigat-
ing financial fraud. Sink also serves as the State
Fire Marshal.

How safe is fluoride for my child?


Fluoride is found in everything from drinking water to toothpaste. The public has
long been told that fluoride is instrumental in preventing dental decay, but there are
detractors who believe that fluoride is an unsafe substance that should not be used -
especially for children's dental health.
Fluoride has been studied extensively for more than 50 years, from when the U.S.
decided its use should be part of a greater public health measure. It is one of the most
extensively studied health supplements in the history of science. Major health
organizations around the world have endorsed it as safe, including the American Dental
Association, the American Medical Association, the Environmental Protection Agency,
the World Health Organization, the National Research Council, and many others. So
why the doubts?


.
Ii i.


I've heard fluoride is toxic.


Just like many other chemicals and substances, fluoride gets a bad name because it
can be toxic in high doses. In fact, fluoride has been used in rat poisons and insecticides
because it is dangerous at extremely high levels, none of which are ever present in
dental health products. Many other seemingly mundane substances may also be
unhealthy if consumed in large amounts, such as salt, over-the-counter medications,
and even types of vitamins and minerals. Experts feel that there is no reason to
condemn the use of something because it can be dangerous in high doses. Properly
regulating use is more practical.
If fluoride is so safe, why shouldn't my young child use toothpaste containing
fluoride?
Fluoride occurs naturally or is supplemented in public water supplies in many areas.
Typically, the amount of fluoride present is 1 part per million. The sodium fluoride that
is added to drinking water is exactly the same level as what occurs naturally the ideal
level for optimum health.
Young children who are unable or do not know how to spit out excessive toothpaste
from brushing may end up consuming more than is healthy, especially for their small
size. As such, unless a child is able to spit out toothpaste while brushing, he or she
should not use a product that contains fluoride. There are many fluoride-free
toothpastes on the market that can teach toddlers how to brush to get them ready for
regular toothpaste.
Why can too much fluoride be bad?
Excessive consumption of fluoride can actually be detrimental to the very objects it is
supposed to protect the teeth. Enamel fluorosis is the name of the condition caused by
,ingesting too much fluoride. In very minor cases it can result in white specs or
imperfections on ,the surface of the teeth. In serious cases the tooth enamel may be
rough, pitted, and hard to clean. Plus, defects can carry over to a child's permanent
teeth. Sometimes when a water supply has a high level of fluoride naturally, children


suffer from fluorosis. The safest way to consume the right amount of fluoride is through
carefully monitored fluoridated water supplies or by drinking bottled fluoridated water.
When my child starts using fluoride toothpaste, how much is recommended?
A pea-sized amount or even smaller will provide enough cavity prevention and be
safe, even if the child swallows a little toothpaste in the brushing process. Focus more
on technique when teaching a child to brush rather than excessively coating brush
bristles with toothpaste.
What else can I do to safeguard my child's dental health?
As soon as your child's first baby (or milk) teeth arrive, you should start practicing
oral health. To limit the amount of dental caries or decay, do not send a child to bed
with a bottle or sippy cup full of milk or juice. Additionally, do not dip pacifiers in
honey or other sweet substances before administering to a child. This can cause
damaging substances to remain close to your child's teeth for a long time.
For very young children, wipe the gums and teeth with a wet rag or use a special
rubber finger brush that is sold to clean off any bacteria and food that may be on baby's
teeth. As children grow, explore the variety of soft-bristled toothbrushes and pastes that
are available to clean teeth. Make sure you help toddlers who aren't very dexterous to
brush properly.
Most dentists and pediatricians also recommended that habits such as thumb sucking
or pacifier use be discouraged after age 2 (many children give.up this behavior naturally
around this time anyway). These habits may cause permanent teeth to later grow in
improperly.

State completes first phase of



purchase to protect Silver Springs


TALLAHASSEE The state recently completed the
first phase of a 4,471-acre purchase near Silver
Springs as part of the Florida First Magnitude
Springs Florida Forever project. A partnership with
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and Marion County,
the full 4,471 acres was purchased by TNC from
Avatar Properties and will be resold to the state in
two phases. With the first purchase of approximate,
ly 2,677 acres complete, the remaining 1,793 acres
will be purchased next fiscal year.
"Silver Springs is a popular destination for visitors
and an important part of Florida's heritage," said
Governor Jeb Bush. "This purchase protects almost
4,500 acres, near one of the largest artesian springs in
the world from development, and preserves the wa-
ter quality of the spring and wildlife habitat for fu-
ture generations."
This purchase protects habitat for rare and endan-
gered species, including the bald eagle, Florida black
bear and gopher tortoise. With 13 known sinkholes,
the, area acts as a pristine recharge area for one of the
largest first magnitude springs in the nation. In ad-



Two year program

As the New Year begins, 26 agricultural produc-
ers from North, central and South Florida will em-
bark on a two-year program designed to position
them as future leaders of the state's agricultural
community. About six times a year they will inter-
act with Florida Farm Bureau staff and leaders,
legislators, regulators and other producers from
Florida and other parts of the nation, getting prac-
tical experience in leadership.
The group comprises the latest class in the Flori-
da Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmer and
Rancher Leadership Group, a program for rising
leaders between the ages of 18 and 35.
"Farm Bureau's success can be traced to the ex-
ceptional leadership found among its active
farmer members" said John Hoblick, who in Octo-
ber was elected president of the Federation. "In or-
der for the organization to maintain this heritage,
it is vital for new leaders to be developed to guide
the organization in the future."
Hoblick, a Volusia County fern producer, is him-
self a product of both the YF&R Young Farmer and
Rancher Program and the Wedgeworth Leader-
ship Group.
The new members of the YF&R Leadership
Group are: Chris and Kelly Lyons of Mayo,
Stephen and Tracie Fulford of Monticello, Bryan
and Wendi Jennings of White Springs, Charlie and
Kelli Hofer of Ocala, Justin and Kelly Mosley of
Middleburg, Clayton and Erin Archey of Oviedo,
Kyle Story of Babson Park, Maurice and Leslie
Turgeau of Lee, Josue Aponte of Ft. Myers, Jason
McKendree of Brandenton, Trey Whitehurst III of
Okeechobee, Ben and April Butler of Lorida,
Roland Yee of Port St. Lucie, Weston and Leslie
Pryor of Moore Haven, Lucas and Kendra Killam
of Jay and Ben and Jamie Ellison of Pace.
In addition to the Leadership Group, The Young
Farmer and Rancher program promotes three con-
tests designed to recognize leadership and in-
volvement. They are the Outstanding YF&R Con-


edition, Silver Springs has served as the setting for the
"Sea Hunt" television series starring Lloyd Bridges
and many feature films, including the film "Hoot"
released in 2005.
"This purchase is critical to the protection of one of
the largest springs in the nation and one of the state's
most famous natural resources," said Keith Foun-
tain, director of land acquisition for The Nature Con-
servancy. "Not only does this acquisition maintain
the integrity of Silver Springs, the site is primarily
rare sandhill habitat, which is home to many rare
species."
The Florida First Magnitude Springs Florida For-
ever project, which the acquisition is a part of, focus-
es on land near Florida's first magnitude springs that
discharge more than 100 cubic feet of water per sec-
ond. Florida's springs, scattered through northern
and central Florida, contribute to the Floridan
Aquifer and the drinking water of Florida's resi-
dents. The springs, with clear, continuously flowing
waters, are among Florida's most important natural
resources and are famous tourist attractions.


"With phase one complete, we are even closer.to
ensuring that Silver Springs, which pumps out
enough water every day to supply the entire city of
New York, is protected," said Florida Department, of
Environmental Protection Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "This acquisition was essential to maintain
the health and wellbeing of the springs for many
years to come."
The Florida Springs Initiative, established by Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush in 2001, is the first comprehensive, co-
ordinated plan to restore and protect Florida's more
than 700 freshwater springs. Last year the Florida
Springs Initiative set aside more than $300,000 to
protect spring ecosystems, water quality and flo\\w
within Florida's award-winning state park system.
The 10-year, $3 billion Florida Forever program es-
tablished by Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida Leg-
islature conserves environmentally sensitive land,
restores waterways and preserves important cultur-
al and historical resources. For more information,

Discussion Meet. Winners are announced at the
FFBF annual meeting each October.
The members of the YF&R Leadership Group
have committed to a two-year program. This pro-
gram offers educational, professional and leader-


ship development, said
Rachel Kudelko, the
FFBF staff member who

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


Dear Ci ssilied Guys,
I'm currently finishing my last
semester for my college iderqoc, and
last year I answered a classified ad
for an Internship program. I had to
compete with four other people to
win the position. At first I was just
doing basic office work like filing
reports and typing emails, but it has
since grown into much more. Now
I'm analyzing proposals and giving
feedback to the president of the com-
pany. He actually waits for my
reports before making his decisions.
Although I'm only there 10 hours per
week, usually after classes, I believe I
work harder than most of the full-
time employees. That got me
thinking. Why don't interns,.
especially valuable ones I__
like me, get paid or have an "--- "
executive office? We work really i(
hard and, in many cases, have
become an asset to the company.
Shouldn't we be compensated for It?
Cash: After just one year, you seem
eager enough for your executive office,
but I wouldn't rush to put your feet up on
the desk just yet.
Carry: While you have gained a lot of
knowledge during your first year as an
intern, hilie re', lill a lot more for you to
learn. For starters, you need to finish


THE

CLASSIFIED


GUYS




Duane "Cash" lHolze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


...I. I A:*,-"
02007 The clasoffled GuysP


your college degree.
Cash: As you know, the experience
you've gained has pr.-hibl,. 1 [iiighit .L
more about the industry than you could
learn in class. However, working only
ten hours per week doesn't put you on the
same pay scale as' full-time employees .
with years of experience.
Carry: Intern programs are valuable
to both the employer and the intern, but
they do have a cost to the company.
Although they may not pay you a salary,
employers do invest a significant amount
of time, energy and money to teach indi-
viduals who want to learn.
Cash: In exchange for the valuable
experience, the interns offer their services.


In your case, the company started you
out on typing emails, but has shown you
how to analyze proposals and produce
reports for the president.
Carry: Before you worry too much
about getting paid right now, keep in
mind that your hard work may lead to a
job offer at the end of this semester.
Cash: Or depending on your goals,
the work experience may help you find a
job at a higher pay scale. So for now,
focus on finishing your internship and
your college degree.
Carry: And if you want to practice
being an executive, then try it at home.
Although be careful, your mom might
not want your feet un on the desk either.

Famous Interns
Are you the next famous intern?
Believe it or not, ,mne 'I.di, "'s celebri-
ties started out as interns. During her
sophomore year at Termessee State
University, Oprah Winfrey worked at
WVTF-TV in Nashville. She was later
hired to co-anchor the news program in
1973. Jody Foster interned the summer
of 1982 at Esquire Magazine primarily
doing office work. And before ajn'idin-.
Harvard University, a young 17-year-old
Bill Gates spent his summer as a congres-
sional page. His entrepreneurship started
early though, when he sold outdated cam-
paigii bunons a-. ollecLrs' items.
Working Out
You have to start somewhere as proved
by the life story of Chris Gardner. The
recent movie and title of his own book,
"Pursuit of Happiness", portray his life's
journey from hardship and homelessness
to an internship that helped make him a
self-made millionaire.. Today, Gardner is,
also an avid motivational speaker on top-
ics such as self-empowerment, beating
the odds, and breaking cycles. His story
has been featured on numerous news
programs including 20/20, Oprah, The
View, and CNN.

Inspire Recipe Reinvention


*'


(Family Features) Tried-and-true
family recipes are part of what makes
this time of year so much fun and
so delicious. This year, why not
create new family memories by
encouraging kids to lend a hand with
menu planning and meal
preparation?
As the youngest-ever winners of a
James Beard Foundation Award,
Olivia and Isabella Gerasole, hosts of
an online cooking show for kids on
spatulatta.com, say that special meals
offer the perfect opportunity to get
hands-on with cooking and recipe,
reinvention.
"Depending on kids' age and
experience; they can run the show in
the kitchen or you can give them
certain jobs like greasing the pans,
mixing, cracking eggs and other fun
stuff," says Isabella Gerasole, age 11.
With a little imagination, it's easy
to share the joy of cooking and
include kids with age-appropriate
activities:
Create Crowd-pleasing Meals -
Enlist kids to help plan menus by
reviewing cookbooks, recipes and

Web sites. Young chefs
can also brainstorm
kid-friendly ingredient
additions or
substitutions in
traditional recipes.
,,, Divide and Conquer
Assign simple tasks
like scrubbing
vegetables and tearing
salad greens to younger
helpers. Tasks like
opening ingredient cans
and packets are perfect
for older kids.
Counting Class -
Encourage hand-eye
coordination and
S.:, reinforce counting skills
by having kids fill and
r. level measuring tools.
Kids can use their
a -- imagination and unique
tastes to reinvent menu
favorites from stuffing
to spinach dip. "We
started with our Papa's
favorite old stuffing recipe, but we
took out the spices he usually uses.
Then we added a packet of Hidden
Valley Ranch mix and it turned out
awesome!" says Olivia Gerasole, age
8.
The recently announced "Recipes
Reinvented" contest provides added
inspiration for recipe innovation. To
enter the contest, create and share a
unique, tasty and easy-to-prepare
recipe using Hidden Valley Original
Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning
Mix.
One grand prize winner will

Goodies Packed to Fly


(Family Features)
Got loved ones
scattered across the
country or around the
world? Share your
home-baked goodies
with them, regardless
of the distance. Bake,
pack and let them fly!
It's not as hard as
you might think to
pack and ship treats.
In our test kitchens
we've baked and
shipped batch after
batch of cookies and
bars that will perform
brilliantly when
shipped on a long
journey, whether it's
cross-country or
around the world.
Shipping within the
U.S. might take only a
couple of days, but
when you're shipping
globally, or to troops
in the Middle East, it
could mean a matter of
weeks. Rely on our test
kitchen results, and
use these tips for,
successful baking and
shipping.
Baked goods that
stand up to long
distances, and the time
it may take to reach
their destination:
May contain both
chocolate and
butterscotch. Both bar
cookies and brownies
are good choices, as
they pack safely and
can be baked easily in
Jarge quantities.
Contain no butter,
margarine, peanut
butter or nuts, all of
which can go rancid
over time or in high
heat. Butter-flavored
vegetable shortening is
a good choice.
Include use of white
table sugar. Other
sweeteners contain too
much moisture and
may mold.
Should be wrapped
well to withstand
transport. Wrap tightly
in aluminum foil, and
pack in sturdy boxes,
surrounding wrapped
goodies with foam
packaging material.
Creative Pan Cookies
were created especially
for baking and sending
to the troops, but of
course they'll be


welcome wherever
they're shipped!
Chewy, dense and
satisfying with
chocolate chips, oats
and dried fruit, they
carry a hint of spicy
cinnamon. Other great-
for-shipping cookie
recipes, such as
Butterscotch Scotchies,
Double Chocolate
Brownies and
Irresistible Brownies,
can be found at
www.verybestbaking.c
om.
Consider that when
shipping to U.S. troops
in the Middle East,
these countries
prohibit any pork or
pork by-products, any
alcohol (including an
ingredient like vanilla)
and the spices allspice
and nutmeg, which are
considered
aphrodisiacs. If you
include a card stating
that your baked goods
were made following
these guidelines, it will
facilitate the package's
trip into the country.

The dirt on composting


I .
'I ~ -


(Family Features) Gardening is dirty
business, but that's a good thing
because building healthy soil is
essential for growing productive
flowers, vegetables, and herbs. One of
the best ways to improve your soil is to
add compost. While not high in
fertilizer value, compost has many
benefits,-including making nutrients
more available to plants, improving
water drainage on clay soils, and


bin. Cover the bin to prevent animals
from entering and to keep the pile from
getting too wet.
The pile will heat up as it
decomposes. Once the pile has cooled,
mix and moisten the-materials, and the
pile should heat up again. Repeat this
mixing process a few times, and in a
few months you should have finished
compost to use in your garden.
Charlie Nardozzi, a nationally


recognized garden writer, book author,
speaker and radio and television
personality, has appeared on HGTV,
PBS and Discovery Channel television
networks. He is the senior
horticulturist and spokesperson for the
National Gardening Association (

Officer for the Hilton Garden Inn.


retaining water on sandy
soils. Fall is a great time to
make or buy compost and
add it to your garden
beds.
Buying Compost
First you need to know
how much compost to
add. For existing flower
and vegetable gardens,
work in a 1- to 2-inch-
thick layer of compost in
spring or fall. For a new
garden on poor soil, add a
thicker layer.
The easiest way to apply
compost to a small garden
is to buy bags. Bagged
compost is usually
sterilized and free of weed
seeds. While more
expensive than buying in
bulk, buying compost in
bags is more convenient.
For larger gardens, buy
compost in bulk. Many
garden centers, nurseries,
and even municipalities
sell bulk compost. Get to
know your compost
before buying it. The
compost should be dark
colored with an earthy
smell and some small
chunks of organic matter.
Avoid foul-smelling
compost or compost with..
large amounts of,
undecomposed material.
To haul it, consider
finding a friend with a
pick-up truck to share a
load.
Making Your Own
The cheapest way to get
compost is to make your
own. "Not only do you
get the satisfaction of
knowing what's in your
compost, you save money
by not paying to haul
your yard waste away,
and help the environment
by not filling up the local
landfill," says Chip
Tynan, horticulturist and
composting teacher at the
Missouri Botanical
Garden in St. Louis. Fall is
the perfect time to make
compost. Your yard is
loaded with compostable
materials, such as grass
clippings, leaves,
vegetable debris, and old
plants.
To build a compost pile,
choose a spot near your
garden or kitchen so you
can easily add organic
matter. Construct or buy a
3- to 4- foot-wide and tall
container. Compost bins
are typically constructed
of wire, plastic, or wood.
Add a 4- to 6-inch-thick
layer of brown material
(chopped leaves, straw,
hay) on the bottom of the
pile. Add a 2- to 4-inch-
thick layer of green
materials (grass clippings,
vegetable plants,
vegetable kitchen scraps)
on top of the brown layer.
(Avoid adding any meats
or oils since these will
attract animals.) Alternate
layers, moistening each
one until the pile fills the
