Division of drivers license is back!

Free Press Reporter
For nearly two decades, Lafayette
County has been without a Division of
Drivers License (DDL) office, but as of
last Monday, Feb. 19, this is no longer
the case. During that period of time,
Lafayette County residents had to travel


to nearby counties to take care of their
drivers licensing needs.
Lafayette County Tax Collector Mari-
lyn Wimberley, who spearheaded the
project, stated that the state no longer
believed our county was large enough
to have a DDL office in the early 90s
and the local office was dosed. But, in

Young Mayo artist wins award Mayo Manna


"2007 Hazardous Weather Awareness Poster Contest"


Local student and artist of Lafayette Elementary
School, Cheyenne Cason, wins Region 2 of the "2007
Weather Awareness Poster Contest". Out of the "500"
entries in the contest, she was the winner in her Region.
Cheyenne is in Mrs. Ruby McCray's fourth grade class.
All students of the fourth and fifth grade were allowed
to enter the contest. With the approaching FCAT and
everyday school work Cheyenne had the support and in-
fluence of McCray, her parents, and art teacher Judy Be-
tard, who all helped in the process of moving things
along to make the deadline in creating her poster.
Her winnings included a $250 Savings Bond and a
NOAA Weather Radio. Cheyenne attended, by invita-
tion only, the Governers Conference which was held in
Tallahassee on Feb. 12, where she was presented her

along with the remaining winners on WCTV, of Tallahas-

"As a professional artist myself, I can clearly see that
Cheyenne has unlimited artistic, abilities that most chil-
dren her age rarely display until they are of adolescent age
or older. Her skills and talent as an artist come with a
recognition of naturalness and are innocently displayed
through her works of art. She is well on her way as a Fu-

her," said Tammy Mowrey, professional artist & freelance

Wouldn't it be comfort-
ing to know that you are
going to Heaven? to have
the assurancethat th e next
time you have a sinful
thought (You can't keep a
bird from landing but you
can keep him from build-
ing a nest) or sinful deed
that God is not going to
throw you into hell?
After having been saved
for about a year a friend
asked me, "if you died right
now would you go to
Heaven?" I wasn't able to
give him an answer. I had.
been saved for about a year
but I didn't know you
could know for sure! After
all how could anyone know
for sure he/she was going
to Heaven? How could
they know whether or not
they had been good
enough; had done enough
good deeds?
I John 5:11, 12 says, "He
that hath the Son of God
hath life..." And then no-
tice, again, in verse 13 (I
John 5:13) that it says,
"These things have I writ-
ten unto you that believe on
the name of the Son of God:
that ye may KNOW that ye
have eternal life..;" You
can 'know you have eternal
life if you have accepted Je-
sus as your Savior. Look at
it again does it say, If you

works, get baptized, etc.
you, can know that you

THRDY MAC 1,20 H AOFE RSMyF AE3


I ran into a stranger as he passed by, "Oh excuse me
please" was my reply.
He said, "Please excuse me too; I wasn't watching for
you."
We were very polite, this stranger and I. We went on
our way and we said goodbye.
But at home a different story is told, how we treat our
loved ones, young and old.
. Later that day, cooking the evening meal, my son stood
beside me very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down. "Move out
of the way," I said with a frown.
He walked away, his little heart broken. I didn't realize
how harshly I'd spoken.
While I lay awake in bed, God's still small voice came to
me and said,
"While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you
use, but the family you love, you seem to abuse.
Go and look on the kitchen floor, you'll find some flow-
ers there by the door.
Those are the flowers he brought for you. He picked
them himself; pink, yellow and blue.
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise, you nev-
er saw the tears that filled his little eyes."
By this time, I felt very small, and now my tears began
to fall.
I quietly went and knelt by his bed, "wake up little one,
wake up," I said.
"Are these the flowers you picked for me?" He smiled,
"I found 'em out by the tree.
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you. I knew
you'd like 'em, especially the blue." '
I said, "son I'm very sorry for the way I acted today; I
shouldn't have yelled at you that way." He said, "Oh
Mom, that's okay. I love you anyway."
I said, "Son I love you too, and I do like the flowers, es-
pecially the blue."
FAMILY
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter
of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for
the rest of their lives.
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into
work than into our own family, an unwise investment in-
deed, don't you think? So what is behind the story?
Do you know what the word FAMILY means? ,

Arvie Willis was employed by the town. He took on
the responsibility for training a small group of eager vol-
unteers in the operation of the pump truck. From that
meager beginning, the Mayo Fire Department, over a
span of years has evolved into a well equipped service
and it even has it's own siren. The fire department is lo-
cated where Bud Morgan once had his cold storage be-
fore moving a block to the south. Others that have

Mr. Bell moved on to the Com-
mercial Bank in Live Oak and
made overtures to all previous
depositors in Mayo that he
would welcome their business.
Later in the 1940's, maybe
1945, Mr. Mahlon McKinney
who was in banking in Cross
City organized a bank in Mayo

Vondolph Land being the last, I believe.
Mr. Williams referred to above, came to Mayo from a
nearby county some years before and along with his,
wife managed the Suwannee Store. The Suwannee Store
which was one of a chain owned by a company head-
quartered in Quitman, Georgia, went defunct for some
reason under their direction and they were fortunate
enough to open their own store across the street. Mrs.
Williams, as recounted to my sister Norma, stated that
things were a little shaky for them financially when they
arrived in Mayo and Mr. Williams had obtained a loan
of $500 from my daddy. The story of their success is no
secret and they owned the Lafayette County State Bank
at their passing.
The history of the bank is interesting. Mayo had been
without a bank for many years. The previous bank had
gone under after the Chancey's brothers, I believe as told
to me, had defaulted on a large loan and used it to buy
cattle, which left the bank without operating capital. Re-
lying on the account given to me of this event, Mr. Bell,
the banker, had informed my granddaddy,; one of the
depositors, of the impending closure of the bank arid he
was allowed to remove his holdings and place them in


and got a charter. Mr. McKinney was a native of Lafayette
County and was well known. He was from the Cooks
Hammock McKinney family. The founders were: Mr.
McKinney, Mr. and Mrs. Williams; Harry Putnal; O.A.
Winbum, Sr.; Minnie Pearl Jones whom Mr. McKinney
brought from the bank in Cross City to manage the Mayo
bank, and her husband, Johnnie who has been a barber, I
believe. Serving the financial needs of local farmers was
not implemented as agreed by the stockholders and so
O.A. Winburn sold his interest to O'Neal Boatright. Mr.
Williams eventually bought out the other stock holders I
believe and that Dick Roberts, brother of Mrs.Williams,
also later bought stock and that his son is now chief opera-
tions officer or president of the bank. As I recall, the bank
was capitalized with thirty thousand dollars with each
stockholder contributing five thousands.
Mrs. William's brother, Sidney 0. (Dick) Roberts
worked with them as butcher in the grocery business for
a bit after returning from military service in WWI but
moved on to a job as trooper with the Highway Patrol
where he retired as lieutenant I believe. I have noticed
with interest as the Lafayette County State Bank has ex-
panded into other areas and, there is now a branch in
Branford.

Mon. Tues. Wed. Thurs.
'5th 6th 7th 8th


Once you have decided which
debts you are able to pay and which
will have to wait, the next step is to
deal with the collectors that aren't
being paid first.
How should I deal with
debt collectors?
Don't let them pressure you into
making the wrong choices about
what to pay first. For example, ex-
plain to the debt collector, "I have to
pay my rent and utility first. I have
been recently laid-off; when I get a
new job I will do my best to meet
my debt."
What can a debt collector
really do?
A debt collector collecting a debt
of the creditor can do little more
than demand payment. If the credi-
tor has not taken your house, car, or
other property as collateral on a
loan, then legally the creditor can
only do three things:
1. Stop doing business with you.
2. Report your default to a credit
bureau (which will be unavoidable,
when you cannot pay most to your
debts on time).
3. Sue you in court. Although the
threat to sue you may be very upset-
ting, it is not nearly as serious, as
you might think. Many creditors do
not follow through on their threats.
If they do sue you can represent
yourself, and explain why you can-
not or should not pay. After a period
of time, the creditor may obtain a
court judgment, but his judgment
still does not force you to pay the
debt. It only gives the creditor the
right to try to seize part of your
wages or particular property. If you
do not own very much of it you d6
not earn very much, creditors will
not be able to seize any of your
property or wages even though they
have a court judgment against you.
Only if you are hiding assets can a
creditor seize wages or property be-
fore a judgment; they cannot send
the consumer to jail or send the con-
sumer's children, to foster care.
How can I stop being harassed?
Federal law prohibits harassment
by collection agencies or attorneys.
For example, they may not contact
you at unreasonable hours: before 8
a.m. or after 9 p.m., unless you give
your permission. They also may not
use obscene or profane language or
call you constantly to annoy you.
Some states also have laws that pro-
vide similar protections against
creditors.
Consumers being harassed by debt
collectors should follow these eight


steps:
1. Head off harassment before it
starts. When financial setbacks pre-
vent you from paying all of your
bills, call the creditor and explain
your situation. Explain that you
have to pay the landlord and utili-
ties first, and that you will pay your
other bills when you can. Don't over
promise: it's better to be' realistic
about your prospects for paying. By
contacting the creditor first, you may
avoid having the debt turned over to
a collection agency, which will usu-
ally be less flexible than the creditor
in working out a payment plan.
2. Write a cease letter. If explain-
ing the situation doesn't stop. collec-
tion efforts; the simplest way to stop
contacts is to write the collector a-
cease letter. Federal law requires col-
lection agencies to stop dunning af-
ter they receive a written request to
stop. It's a good idea to include in
the letter why you can't pay right
now and what your expectations are
for the future, though this is not nec-
essary.. You should also note in the
letter any billing errors and/or abu-
sive tactics debt collectors have used
in their contacts with you. Be sure to
keep a copy of the letter. Below is a
sample letter:

(date)
(name of collection agency)
(address)

Dear sir:
I am writing to request that you
stop communications to me about
my account number
with (name of creditor) as required
by the Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act 15 U.S.C. 1692c(c).
I will take care of this matter when
I can. Your cooperation will be ap-
preciated.
Very truly yours,
(your name)
(your address)

3. Have a lawyer write a, cease let-
ter. you don't need a lawyer to write
a cease letter, but if your letter does
.not stop the harassment, a letter
from a lawyer usually will. Also, col-
lection agencies must stop contact-
ing you once they know you are rep-
resented by a lawyer. .
4. Work out a payment plan. If .
you decide to work out a payment
plan, you should only agree to a re-
alistic plan, preferably one that sig-
nificantly reduces the debt. In mak-
ing any agreement, keep in mind
your priorities: don't make even


small payments if the payments
would prevent you from paying
your mortgage or rent, food or utili-
ties.
5. Complain about billing errors.
Collection letters are sometimes in
error. If a letter contains a mistake,
you should write and request a cor-
rection (and keep a copy of your re-
quest). If you dispute the debt in
writing within 30 days of your re-
ceiving notice of the right to dispute,
the collection agency must stop col-
lection efforts while it investigates. If
the account is an open-end account,
like a credit card, you can dispute a
charge within 60 days of receiving
the bill.
6. Complain to a government
agency. Mail any complaint you
have about a collector's conduct to
the Federal Trade Commission, Bu-
reau of Consumer Protection, Wash-
ington, DC 20580, to the consumer
protection division within your state
attorney general's office, and to any
local office of consumer protection.
You should be able to obtain these
addresses from your local Better
Business Bureau' or office of con-
sumer affairs. Send a copy of the let-
ter to the collector.
7. File Bankruptcy. Filing bank-
ruptcy will instantly and effectively
stop all debt collection efforts of any
kind. Often simpler and less expen-
sive action will resolve debt collec-
tion harassment, but bankruptcy fil-
ing may provide significant other
advantages for the debtor. Filing
bankruptcy should not be a casual
decision, and a competent profes-
sional should be. consulted before
any bankruptcy case is initiated.
8. Sue the Debt Collector; The fed-
eral Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act allows you to sue debt collectors
which violate the Act's provisions.
Statutory damages up to $1,000, ac-
tual damages, costs and attorney's
fees are available to persons who
bring successful actions. Consult an
attorney to discuss such litigation.
The foregoing advice is provided
by the lawyers at Three Rivers Legal
Services, Inc., a non-profit corpora-
tion which receives funds from vari-
ous local agencies and individuals,
as well as from the federal govern-
ment through Legal Services Corpo-
ration (LSC). For specific advice on
your particular situation, we suggest
that you consult with a lawyer of
your choosing. If you cannot afford
a lawyer, you may call your local le-
gal services office to find out if you
qualify for free legal assistance.


6 ways to feel fuller on fewer calories


By: Priscilla Cashman,
Program Assistant
Lafayette County
Extension Service
Reduce the calories densi-
ty of the solid foods you eat.
Foods with a high calorie
density generally provide
less satisfaction per calorie
than foods with a low calo-
rie density. Fruits, vegeta-
bles, legumes and nonfat
dairy are all much lower in
calorie density than
processed foods that are
made with sugar and white
flour. Fatty meats and other
high-fat foods are very high
in calorie density. Choose
lean poultry, seafood and
leaner cuts of meat instead.


Increase high-fiber foods.
Foods with more dietary
fiber tend to make people
feel satisfied longer than
those with less dietary fiber.
Fruits, vegetables, legumes
and whole grains are all
high in fiber.
Don't eat when you are
not hungry. Research has
shown that the same snack
provides more satisfaction if
eaten when hungry than
when consumed in the ab-
sence of hunger.
Increase consumption of
foods with a greater volume
if their calorie density is sim-
ilar. For example, choose
popcorn rather than corn
chips or puffed rice rather
than Grape-Nuts cereal.
Avoid foods high in fat
and/ or sugar. Research
suggests that foods with
more protein, starch and
fiber provide more satisfac-
tion per calorie than do
those high in fat, sugar or re-
fined grains. Foods that are
high in fat include fried"
foods, cheese, butter, mar-
garine, refined oils, fatty
meats and many fast foods


I I


such as burgers and pizza.
Foods that are high in sugar
include candies, pastries,
cookies and most dessert
foods.
Avoid liquid calories. Re-
search has shown that sugar
in a solid form (jelly beans)
provides more satisfaction
for a given calorie level than
it does if it is dissolved in
water (soda).

crease healthy eating habits,

Lafayette past Bucs

win over Branford. photo by Ed Taylor

Sports Correspondent
Lindsey Hamlin made short work
of the Branford Lady Bucs last Fri-
day night hurling four strong in-
nings in a 14-2 five inning affair on
the road. But Hamlin did more than
just hurl a no-hitter but she starred at
the plate as well. Hamlin collected
two hits, walked twice and had two
runs batted in as the Lady Hornet
stayed perfect at 2-0 this season.
Hamlin allowed two unearned runs
in striking out seven batters and hit-
ting two batters.
Kailey Sapp pitched'the final in-
ning and retired the Lady Bucs in or-


der in closing out the win. Sapp was
very impressive in her short time on
the mound.
Junior Natalie Land, who had
walked the first three times at the
plate, had the game's lone home run.
That came in the Lady Hornets
fourth inning. Marla Alcazar reached
on a one-out error. Kelsey Land
walked and both runners scored
when Land drilled a pitch to right
center that found its way in the gap.
Land used her speed to circle the
bases and race home before the ball
found its way back to the infield.
She collected three runs batted in on
the hit.


The Lady Hornets put the game
away early scoring four times in the
first and adding five runs in the sec-
ond inning in taking a 9-1 lead. Al-
cazar and Kathy Jo Walker had RBI's
in the first inning. Walker picked up
another run batted in the second
frame. Ashley Myers doubled home
a run in the second inning and
Kristin Millard had a sacrifice fly
that drove in a run as well. Eighth-
grader Cartesha Macklin logged out
an infield hit driving home a run.
Hamlin's first safety drove in a run

in win
by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Madison scored four un-
earned runs in the top of
the fourth inning en route
to a 7-4 win over
Lafayette's junior varsity
baseball team last Thurs-
day evening. The host Hor-
nets committed four errors
in allowing all four runs to
score with two outs. The
Hornets bats were having
trouble catching up with
the off speed pitches that
Madison's John McDonald
was throwing plateward.
McDonald, mixing his
pitching well, struck out 15
Hornet batters in going the
distance for the win.
The performance by Mc-
Donald overshadowed the
great performance by Hor-
net starter Ethan Perry,
who went the first four in-
nings. He allowed two un-
earned runs the first inning
but shut the door on Madi-
son over the next three.
Perry did not allow a hit in
his four-inning stint.
McDonald retired 10
straight Hornet batters un-
til Perez reached him for a
solid base hit in the bottom
of the Hornets sixth. Mc-
Donald retired 14 of the last
15 batters he faced. He
struck out the side in the
first, fourth, fifth and sixth
innings.
Madison took a 2-0 lead
in the first inning without
the benefit of a base hit. A
wild pitch and hit batsman
helped in the early lead for
the visitors. Both runners
crossed the plate on fielder
choice plays.
Perry'was outstanding in
retiring eight straight over
the second, third and
fourth innings. The Hor-
nets took a 4-2 lead with a
single run in the second
and three in the third. Kade
Bell opened the Hornet sec-
ond with a solid single to
left center. Austin Ander-
son followed with a safety

Keen shuts down Taylor Co.


on four hits in 4-0 whitewash


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
It was nearly an over-
flowing crowd that
showed up for high.
school baseball at
Lafayette High School this
past Saturday to enjoy the
sunshine and comfortable
temperatures. The home
crowd got the most enjoy-
ment as Colby Keen scat-
tered four Taylor County
hits en route to a 4-0
shutout win over the Bull-
dogs.
The win improved
Lafayette to 3-2 on the
season.
Thomas Byrd provided
the power from the plate
collecting two hits includ-
ing his second home run
of the season. Byrd hit a
drive that cleared the left-
center field fence leading
off the fourth inning.
Keen mastered the
mound by keeping the
Bulldogs off stride at the
plate with his off-speed
pitches. Keen faced one
batter over the minimum
in going the full seven in-
nings for the Hornets.
"That was some pretty
good pitching," said Hor-
net coach Stewart Han-
cock of his right-hander.
"He has done that his last


two outings. Mentally.
Colby is learning to be
very tough. We expect
him to keep doing what
he is doing."
Keen said he was not
aware of how many he
had retired he just wanted
to get the job done. "I


knew that I just needed to
throw strikes," Keen said.
"Our defense was just
awesome tonight. We had
the two double plays and
that helps out. We have
our bats going and our
defense is solid and I am
starting to come around in


pitching."
The Hornets defense
was outstanding in the
field and that helped bail
Keen out of a couple jams
early in the game. After
retiring the first eight bat-

It is hard to believe that
we are not still playing
basketball.
What a great season
the Lafayette Lady Hor-
nets had. Finishing 25-3
ohn the season is not bad
at all. There are a lot of
teams in the state of
Florida that would have
enjoyed such a finish. As
all know the Lady Hor-
nets fell to North Florida
Christian in the regional
finals. Coacl* Jimmy
Blankenship put it well:
"We had nothing to hang
our heads about this sea-
son," he said. "We have
notdlng to be ashamed
of. We lost to a good
team and did not lose to a
team that Was not de-
serving."
Natalie Land closed
out the season with a 35
point performance. I
thought that might have
been her career high but
Coach Blankenship said
she had scored 41 a cou-
ple years back. "We
played North Florida
three times and they are a
tough team," said the
Lady Hornet coach. "We
will take some time away
and get back to basket-
ball in May when we go
to camp this summer."
I congratulate the Lady
Hornets on a fine season
and I for one (and I know
there are many others)
enjoyed the season and
look forward to next
year. Marla Alcazar was
the lone senior on the
team and she will be
missed nexti season.
Coach Blankenship will
return the rest with some
promising eighth-
graders coming in next
season. I look for the
Lady Hornets to be right
back in the regional finals
next season.

Baseball is here,
yeaaaa..!
I love the game of base-

with Upshaw picking up the win. Bar-

runs on eight hits. He struck out three
batters and walked seven. Upshaw al-
lowed seven runs on eight hits, striking
out three and walking seven.
The two teams played to a 6-6 tie be-


fore the Bulldogs went to work in the
seventh. Wildness was a problem for
Barrington in walking four batters in the
inning.
After a scoreless first Taylor County
took a 1-0 lead but the Hornets tied the
game at 1-1 on one-out walks to Reid
and Lamnacle. Smith grounded into a
force out before Lashley's base hit tied
the game.
Lafayette went in front 5-1 with four
runs in the bottom of the third. Greshem
had a two run single that scored Ben Bell
and Ethan Perry. The big hit in the in-

ning was Reid's two-run shot that made
it a four run game.
The Bulldogs pushed across a run in
top of the fourth to make it a 5-2 game
and plated four runs in the fifth in taking
a 6-5 advantage. The Hornets tied the
game at 6-6 in the bottom of the inning.
Perry doubled with two out and came
home on Greshem's RBI:single.
After the Bulldogs busted loose in the
seventh, the Hornets scored a single run
in the bottom of the inning for the final
17-7 score. Kade Bell had a one-out sin-
gle and scored on Perry's RBI double.

ters he faced, he gave up a
two-out walk to Taylor
Ratliff in the third inning.
But Taylor was nailed at
the plate when he tried to
score on a wild pitch.
Aaron Greshem recovered
the errant ball, tossing to
Keen for the tag and to
end the inning.
Lafayette scored single
runs in the first four in-
nings in taking a 4-0 lead.
Byrd opened the Hornets
first inning by driving
Nick Albertson's first
pitch to left center for a
base hit. He later scored
when B3bba Fallyaw
grounded out to short.
Keen got some solid de-
fense behind his perfor-
mance and two great
plays came in the second
inning. Third baseman,
Chris Mercedes and short-
stop Ragan Knight made
two outstanding plays
that kept the Bulldogs off
the bases. Coach Hancock
liked what he saw on the
field. "We have a good
defense. We have players
on the bench who are also
good defensive players,"
said the Hornet mentor.
"Thing about defense,
when you have a kid
throwing strikes he keeps
you on your toes. That is
the good thing about Col-
by. He may give up a few
more hits the next time he
pitches but he is going to
throw strikes. He is not
going to walk many peo-
ple and that makes the de-


fense to stay on their toes
and makes the defense to
want to play hard behind
him."
Keen set the Bulldogs
down in order in their
half of the third and in the
bottom of the inning
Lafayette went up 3-0
when they loaded the
bases against Albertson. A
lead off single by Fallyaw
got the rally going with
Keen sending the ball to
deep centerfield for a two-
base hit just missing going
out. Fallyaw had to stop
at third base. Jon Ander-
son walked to fill the
bags. With two outs, Chad
Hempstead bounced to
short for a force at secondd
allowing Keen to come for
a 2-0 lead.
The Hornets defense
turned a double play in
the fourth frame. Young
opened the Taylor County
four with a leadoff dou-
ble. Keen got Brandon
Mock to sky out to left-
fielder Hempstead. Will
Hall also lofted a fly ball
to left where Hempstead
made the play and caught
Young a little too far off
second by throwing to
second baseman Chase
Walker to double him up.
The Hornets final run
came in their half of the
fourth when Byrd's drive
left the ball park. The
Bulldogs threatened to
ruin the shutout after con-
secutive singles by Young
and Mock to open the sev-
enth inning. But Keen set-
tled down got hold of a

grounder to second and
the Hornet infield turned
a 6-4-3 double play to end
the game.
Coach Hancock says his
team gets a little bit better
each time out. "The thing
these guys are tired of
hearing from me is, I tell
them you either get a little
bit better or a little bit
worse if you don't play
according to your compe-
tition," he said. "Baseball
is a game of competition.
I think they are starting to
buy into that. Right now
we are working to get a
little bit better. Hopefully,
at the end of the season
when we get through the
private schools and we
are fortunate enough to
get int9 the playoffs we
will be where we need to
be."
Keen said his pitch
against the Bulldogs was
his fast ball which was
clocked at times in the
mid-70s. "My best pitch
tonight was my fastball,"
he said. "My breaking
stuff was fair. Some went
into the dirt and I got a
couple strikeouts on
them."
Keen allowed no runs
while giving up just the
four hits. He struck out
six batters and issued but
one walk. Albertson took
the loss for Taylor County
in working the first three
and two-third innings be-
fore giving way to Mock.
Albertson allowed three
runs on five hits. He
struck out one and
walked two while hitting
one batter. Mock in three
and a third innings of
work gave up the home
run to Byrd for his lone
run. He fanned five bat-
ters and he hit one.

of year. I took in the festivities last Satur-
day at the Lafayette Hornets field. What a
large crowd that was present. Even the
folks from Taylor County crowded their
side as well. It was good to see. I like the
make up of this Hornet baseball team.
Coach Stewart Hancock has his team play-
ing well early.
Friday night at Branford I thought
someone had turned the air on it got so
cold. I am not a big fan of cold weather. I
like the hot weather. Baseball and softball
was meant to be played in warm weather
not this cold stuff we are having.
I love hot dogs. When I go to a game I al-
ways have to have me a hot dog. I sort of
critique hot dogs at different places. Now
a hot dog is just a hot dog if it does not
have some chili sauce to put on it. All the


places where they sell them only have
mustard and relish to cover the dog. So
far, all the hot dogs have tasted the same
to me.
Track and Field...great
Last week I took in the season's first
track and field meet and what a great af-
ternoon that was. The weather was perfect
and a baseball game was to follow, the
meet at Lafayette High School. How could
it get any better? There are some good
young talent out there in all the schools
that competed and I look forward to the
next meet. I was,taken back by the large
number of people that was on hand root-
ing their respective schools on. Lafayette,
Branford and Cedar Key were in competi-
tion. I just love being around the stu-
dent/athletes.
Well, until next week, good sports
everyone and be good sports!

up the middle with racing
to third base. McDonald
was called for a balk allow-
ing Bell to score and An-
derson moving to second
base. McDonald settled
down and retired the, next
three batters to prevent any
further Lafayette scoring.
After Perry got Madison
on two ground out to short
and to third, the Hornets
struck for three runs in the
bottom of the third to as-
sume their 4-2 lead. After
Ben Bell grounded to short
at the onset of the third,
Brooks Lamineck ground-


ed to third baseman .Billy
Hatton whose errant throw
to first went for a two-base
error. Perry picked up the
run batted in (RBI) with a
single to right field. Catch-
er Alex Greshem followed
with a slow roller in front
of the plate that he legged
out for an infield single
moving Perry to second.
Madison's defense became
unraveled as they commit-
ted four errors allowing
both Perry and Greshem to
come home.
That would be the only
threat the Hornets would
mount over the final four
innings. Only one runner
reached base and that was
on Perez's single in the
sixth.
Perry, who was brezzing
along, was replaced on the
mound by Kade Bell in the


top of the fifth inning. Bell
had trouble finding the
strike zone but he wasn't
help by the four errors by
the Hornets. Madison plat-
ed four runs in the inning,
all unearned.
Bell suffered the setback
for the Hornets in relief of
Perry allowing five runs on
three hits in two innings of
work. He fanned two while
giving up three hits..
Greshem followed Bell to
the hill in the seventh
walking one batter and
striking out three. Perry
finished with two hits in
the game.
Madison scored seven
runs on three hits leaving
seven runners stranded.
Lafayette scored four runs
on six hits, committed six
errors and left three run-
ners on base.

the late 90s, the state be-
gan allowing Tax Collec-
tors' offices to process dri-
vers licenses. Wimberly
stated she felt this would
be good for our county
and for several years has
.been working to make this
happen.
Assisting Wimberley in
this long endeavor, were
the county commissioners
who provided plenty of
support and financial as-
sistance. "The Board of
County Commissioners
have been a tremendous
help in approving this pro-
ject and supplying the
funds to make this hap-
pen," Wimberley said.
Because of the much
needed help she received
from the commissioners,


equipment costing around.
$34,000 which is required
for processing the drivers
licenses, could be pur-
chased.
Local residents of the
county, Shelia Smith,
Samantha Koon, and Lana
Herndon will be working
with Wimberley in the
DDL office. According to
Wimberley, the local office
will be able to assist resi-
dents in all types of licens-
ing needs except the actual
driving test, as well as any-
thing that pertains to haz-
ardous materials. "We will


not be doing the actual dri-
ving exam at this time, or
anything to do with haz-
ardous materials, but do
hope to add these services
in the future," Wimberley
said.
The types of services of-
fered include license re-
newals, new licenses, iden-
tification cards, written
tests, correcting problems
associated with license sus-
pensions or insurance, and
correcting or updating ad-
dresses.
Wimberley is very
pleased with how the pro-


ject has turned out and
looks forward to helping
all citizens of Lafayette
County in this new office
which is located across
from the tax collector's of-
fice in the courthouse. "We'
are so pleased to be able to'
extend this service to
Lafayette County citizens -
through the Tax Collector's*

How fat is too fat?


The word is getting out
that most Americans are
overweight (sometimes re-
ferred to as obesity), but a
lot of people are still not
aware that includes them.
We're not just talking
about not looking good in a
bathing suit. Even someone
who is just "a little round,"
or "pleasantly plump" is al-
ready at higher risk for sig-
nificant health problems
that are costing Americans
$130 billion a year. Fully
two out of three Americans
are overweight today.
So just how fat is too fat?
The euphemisms we use
nowadays to refer to body
weight mostly imply that
it's a matter of image or ap-
pearance, distracting from
the real issue-excess weight
is hurting our health. So
how do you know when to
be concerned? When has
body weight gone from a
cosmetic issue to one of
well-being?
The standard tool for
measuring that is the Body
Mass Index (BMI). The BMI
calculates height and weight
" -: to come up with a score that
is indicative of a class of
health risk. A score of 18.5 to
25 is typically considered a
healthy BMI. Above 25, the
S- level of body fat begins to
constitute a health risk, be-
cause the excess contributes
to problems like elevated
blood pressure, elevated
blood sugars and high cho-
lesterol, which all lead to se-
rious ailments.
A woman who is 5-foot-4
and 155 pounds has a BMI
o- f 27. That's overweight,
and she's already at higher
risk for various health prob-
lems. But if she also has one
or more other risk factors-
doctors call them "co-mor-
bidities"-such as hyperten-
sion or a family history of
diabetes, her physician
shoulA strongly recommend
that sb- bring her weight
down and be vigilant about
keeping it stable at a healthy
level.


But that same woman just
15 pounds heavier is clini-
cally obese, and at great risk
for a host of major medical
problems including heart
disease and even cancer.
Her risk of ultimately dying
from those problems simply
skyrockets once she reaches
that 30 BMI mark.
Along with BMI, doctors
also use the measurement of
waist circumference. A
waist circumference of more
than 35 inches for women or
more than 40 inches for men
is considered bad news.
That's because where our
weight is distributed can be
as critical as how much
we're toting around. Weight
deposited abdominally-
sometimes referred to as the
"apple" body type-has a
much greater impact on in-
ternal organs and the way
our bodies -function, so it's
much more dangerous than
weight carried mainly on
the hips and thighs, as with
the "pear" body type.
How our weight is dis-
tributed is largely a result of
our genetics and we don't
get a vote in it. But if we end
up with a body that carries
weight in the torso, we get
stuck with., fat that is far
more likely to cause elevat-
ed blood sugars and high
cholesterol, that is more
likely to impair kidney
function, more likely 'to in-
terfere with our cardiovas-
cular health. So someone
with a BMI of only 25 or 26,
but with a bigger waist cir-
cumference, may be ad-


vised to lose some weight
anyway, just to help avoid
some of those serious health
concerns.
And what of those folks
who have been overweight
for a long time, who are
comfortable with their bod-
ies, and so far haven't no-
ticed any ill effects of their
excess weight?
It is possible to be fit and
fat, and a few people are,
but it's very few. Health
risks do increase with age,
and you may not notice ini-
tial signs of trouble devel-
oping. But you don't have
to wonder. You can find out
if you're having any nega-
tive health effects because of
your weight with a few sim-
ple tests conducted by your
doctor to tell you if your
blood sugars, cholesterol, or
insulin levels are outside the
healthy range.
And if they are, you know
it's time to make some
changes for the better, be-
fore your body takes a turn
for the worse.

Book tells how one woman shaped history


In honor of Coretta Scott King's
contribution to the Civil Rights fight
for equality and her grace and dignity
in the face of tragedy, a biography
written by Octavia Vivian, a close friend
of King and a fellow member of the
Civil Rights movement, has been
re-released as a commemorative issue.

By Heather Sleightholm
CNHI News Service

SAPULPA, Okla. Coretta Scott King was many things. .
Not only was she the wife and staunch supporter of Civil
Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, she was a powerful
speaker and leader in her own right.
She was also a woman trying to raise and protect her young
family in the center of a movement often dealing with tur-
moil, chaos, triumph and tragedy.
Since her passing in January 2006, the legacy of Coretta
Scott King and how she helped to shape the Civil Rights
movement has become even more poignant.
Upon hearing of her death, Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue or-
dered the state Capitol flag to be flown at half-mast'and invit-
ed the King family to have Coretta lie in state under the
Georgia Capitol Dome an honor denied to her husband at
the time of his death.
Coretta wasn't just a supporter in the shadows of a move-
ment. She was a key player in keeping the wheels of the civil
rights movement turning, taking charge of rallies, demonstra-
tions and the day-to-day operations of movement when her
husband was unable to.
In honor of Coretta's contribution to the movement's fight
for equality and her grace and dignity in the face of tragedy
and under extreme pressure, a biography written by Octavia
Vivian, a close friend of Coretta Scott King and a fellow
member of the Civil Rights movement, has been re-released
as a commemorative issue.
"Coretta: The Story of Coretta Scott King," is written in
simple and straight-forward prose that can be easily read by
children as well as adults.
Vivian's biography of Coretta is unique in that she is able
to reveal the woman behind the legend using her own person-
al'knowledge of Coretta, as well as information from articles
and conversations within the movement.
Vivian wrote of Coretta that (Coretta) "has been a symbol
of the new image of African-American woomanhood since
the daN s of the Montgomery bus boycott "
At the time, Coretta was the young wife of a minister with
an infant daughter to care for.
One evening in the heat of the controversy of the bus boy-
cott, Coretta was sitting in her living room when she heard
.the sound af an object landing on her front porch.
At first she assumed that the noise was caused by a thrown
brick, which wouldn't have been unusual since the Kings had
been bombarded with hate mail.and threatening phone calls
ever since arranging the boycott of Montgomery buses for
their unfair treatment of black passengers.
Concerned for her baby, Coretta started down the hallway
to the back of the house when she heard,a loud explosion
from the front of the house..
The evening was terrifying for the young family, but it also
cemented their resolve to support the Civil Rights movement,
no matter the danger.
"That night Coretta lost her fear of dying. She committed
herself more deeply to the freedom struggle," Vivian reveals


CO( b M I :.IOR.ATIlV'i 1 II I 10

Octavia Vivian


in her book.
Vivian also describes the sacrifices Coretta made in order
to strengthen the movement and support her family, as well as
humanizing aspects of her character.
A gifted performer, Coretta dreamed of pursuing a ca-
reer on the stage. Becoming a minister's wife and a leader
in a major cultural movement had never entered her mind
until she met Dr. King as a college student studying in
Boston.
She soon learned that she and King not only shared a
passion for education and bettering, one's self, but in bet-
tering their community and country as a whole.
A young woman with strong Southern roots and work
ethic, Vivian is clear to point out that Coretta was a force
to be reckoned with in her own right.
As a college student, Coretta worked her way though
school to get her teaching degree, only to be denied the
right to teach in a school with white students.
That experience, combined with a strong senseof justice
and appreciation for making a life for one's self, inspired
Coretta to speak her mind in Civil Rights matters, and
made her an equal partner and advisor to her husband.
Often times it was only Coretta standing behind her hus-
band and guiding him in his decisions, ek en if it meant.
sacrificing personal happiness, comfort and safety.
"I commend the timely emergence of this book," African
American poet Maya Angelou has said of the biography.
"Coretta-Scott King was a loving-mothef, wife, a reliable
sister, friend and a great American.This work will help us
to know more about her resilience and her courage, and
each of us can grow strongerfrom that knowledge."
"Coretta: The Story of Coretta Scott King" by Octavia
Vivian is published by Fortress'Press in Minneapolis and
available to purchase online and at local bookstores.

ly Herald.

Attorney General names 2006 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year


Submitted
Attorney General Bill McCollum recently named Detective
Sergeant James R. Contento of the Tampa Police Department as
the recipient of the Attorney General's Law Enforcement Officer
of the Year award for 2006. Detective Contento was joined by
12 fellow officers from around the state at a ceremony recogniz-
ing them for their dedication to law enforcement and their pro-
tection of the public.
In naming Detective Contento as this year's award recipient,
McCollum praised his reputation for building successful partner-
ships between the Tampa police department and the public it
serves. In response to juvenile crimes committed at malls during
the summer months, Detective Contento coordinated a team of
patrol officers including crime prevention, undercover, bicycle
and mounted patrol officers to work with mall managers and re-
tailers. As a result of this unified approach, the number of seri-
ous offenses in targeted areas dropped more than 25 percent.

"Each of these men and women represents
the very best from among the 53,000
outstanding men and women of Florida's
law enforcement community."
Attorney General Bill McCollum

Florida. Lieutenant Byrne was the lead investigator in one of the
largest staged accident rings in Pinellas County history, involv-
ing over thirty individuals attempting a fraud scam estimated to

tivity.
The Florida Police Chiefs
Association: Officer Richard
Hackett
Officer Hackett joined the
Tampa Airport Police Depart-
ment in 2003 following a 28-
year career in the United States
Air Force. He was instrumental
in, the effort to implement a Bi-
cycle Patrol Squad to combat
vehicle-related crimes at the
Airport, with the immediate
impact of reducing vehicle-re-
lated crimes in the parking
garages by 60 percent. Addi-
tionally, Officer Hackett
showed great courage in June.
2005 when he and three other
officers responded to a hostage
situation in the parking garage.
After exiting his vehicle and
shooting his victim, the heavily
armed suspect then directed his
fire at the officers, but Officer
Hackett held his ground and
advanced, ultimately saving his
own life and the lives of his
fellow officers.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Trooper of the Year:
Troopers Jorge Lopez-Torres
and Carlos Austin
In May 2005, Troopers
Lopez-Torres and Austin re-
sponded to a serious vehicle
crash that occurred in a remote
section of the Sawgrass Ex-
pressway in Broward County.
They were advised that the two
vehicles, a pickup truck and a
commercial motor vehicle, had
a head-on collision and became
submerged in a canal. Al-
though informed that there was
no sign of life in the commer-
cial vehicle, both troopers dove
into the murky canal waters.
They freed the unresponsive
driver and brought him to the
surface, where they immediate-
ly began to administer CPR.
Soon the victim began to
breathe on his own and local
emergency services arrived.


Troopers Lopez-Torres and
Austin placed themselves in
great personal danger to save
the life of this victim.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Special
Agent of the Year: Claudia
Mulvey
Special Agent Mulvey is
currently assigned to the Eco-
nomic Crimes Squad in
FDLE's Miami Regional Oper-
ations Center. She has demon-
strated superior investigative
efforts and hal contributed sig-
nificantly to, solving hard cases,
including a case that involved
interstate embezzlement of
more than $2 million from an
aviation company by its man-
agement. Her persistence in
following up on leads and
completing interviews as well
as her ability to make a diffi-
cult financial case "compre-
hensible" resulted in this case's
prosecution by a United States
Attorney. .
The Florida Wildlife Feder-
ation: Lieutenant Charles
"Chuck" Russo
Lieutenant Russo, .assigned
to Palm Beach County, is well-
known for blending a commit-
ment to enforce the law with
fairness and understanding. He
is responsible for two very
large Wildlife Management Ar-
eas on the Southeast coast and
supervises up to 30 officers,
who act as a focal point of fish
and wildlife protection as well
as the guardians of countless
recreational users in our woods
and on our waters. His rela-
tionship with the users of pub-
lic lands is built on trust and
respect and he is tireless and
undaunted in his efforts to help
preserve Florida's natural re-
sources.
The Florida State Fraternal
Order of Police: Detective
Gustavo Sanchez
In June 2005, Miami Detec-
tive Gustavo Sanchez reported
to an off-duty job ahead of
schedule and began to patrol


the nearby area. The dispatcher
advised him that there were
swimmers in distress at a near-
by Miami beach and he imme-
diately responded. From the
shore, he could see one of two
young women struggling in
heavy surf. Detective Sanchez
swam approximately 75 yards
out to the woman and brought
her to shore against the heavy
rip tide, high winds and waves.
As lifeguards and other rescue
personnel arrived, Detective
Sanchez directed them to the
area where the other woman
was last seen, but unfortunately
she could not be rescued. De-
tective Sanchez put his own
life in peril to save the young
woman, who could have per-
ished without his assistance.
The Florida Department of
Transportation, Motor Carrier
Compliance Office: Sergeant
Steven Sharpton
Sergeant Sharpton, a re-
sourceful law enforcement offi-
cer with a history of sustained
superior performance, super-
vises sworn officers and non-
sworn weight inspectors at the
scale facility located on Inter-
state 10 in Santa Rosa County.
Last October, while on duty at
the scale facility, he was alert-
ed to an emergency involving a
driver who was pinned under-
neath a semi-trailer. Sergeant
Sharpton and two weight in-
spectors rigged a makeshift
jack and were able to raise the
trailer just enough to free the
driver. Sergeant Sharpton's
quick response and innovative
thinking saved the life of the
driver.
The Florida Sheriffs Asso-
ciation, Deputy Sheriff of the,
Year: Madison County Deputy
Sheriff John Sleigher
Deputy Sleigher was named
Deputy Sheriff of the Year fol-
lowing his actions that saved
the life of a woman who was
the victim-of a violent domes-
tic attack. In October 2005,
Deputy Sleigher was dis-


patched to a rural home where
he was informed that a man
was inside, holding a knife to a
his girlfriend's throat. Deputy
Sleigher drew his weapon and
entered the home, where he ob-
served a man holding a woman
on the floor with an 8-inch
blade pressed against the side
of her neck. Deputy Sleigher
ordered the man to drop the
knife, but the suspect held the
knife closer and indicated he
planned to kill the woman.
Deputy Sleigher advanced, and
as the man raised his arm as if
to stab the woman, Sleigher
fired two rounds into the sus-
pect's right side. He then
lunged forward, grabbing the
suspect's arm and firing again
while freeing the woman from
her attacker. Although terrified
from the ordeal, the victim was
not physically injured. Deputy
Sleigher's actions clearly saved
the woman from serious injury
or death.
Department of Environ-
mental Protection: Officer By-
ron Smith
Currently stationed in Orlan-
do, Officer Smith demonstrates
a rare combination of occupa-
tional knowledge, initiative and
maturity. On one occasion, he
conducted a late night search
for an elderly couple in a
swamp where their canoe had
capsized. Upon finding the
couple, Officer Smith gave his
boots to the woman since she
had lost her shoes in the river.
Barefoot, he then successfully
led the couple to safety through
thick saw palmettos and
swamp. Additionally, his ag-
gressive patrol techniques have
resulted in multiple arrests for
felony drug possession, artifact
theft and poaching. His posi-
tive attitude, example, instruc-
tion and mentoring activities
raise the standards of his fel-
low officers, making Officer
Smith a true asset to the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection.

5 ways to help when someone is hospitalized


A hospitalization or life-changing health care diagnosis will touch everyone's life eventually.
A sibling is diagnosed with cancer. A colleague's baby is born too soon. A neighbor suffers a
heart attack. An accident severely injures a niece.
Times like these often bring family, friends and neighbors to ask, "How can I help?" But
even the best of intentions can be
.U waylaid when you don't know
.-. .' /f what to do or fear being too
intrusive.
"In the midst of a health care
crisis, people live in a slow-
motion world overwhelmed with
fear, uncertainty and critical
health care decisions. They
simply can't focus on or may
even forget about day-to-day
activities," said Dr. Jesse
S Gruman, president of the Center
for the Advancement of Health.
"The burdens they're facing '
c cause action-paralysis. They
lgtoften don't know what they need
S or how to ask for help. Friends
S.-. and family can best help by just
S"doing whatever they see that
.. needs doing. That will
dramatically reduce stress and
bring hope and relief to a hurting
_" family."
There are many normal daily
activities that get set aside in the
days and weeks consumed with
medical tests, doctor visits,
". surgeries, physical therapy or
chemotherapy. Here are five
specific ways to help until life
resumes some sense of normalcy.
1. Pick Something Specific -
Starting at Home
For those who are touched with a health care crisis, you can take Try not to ask the general
many steps to help through this difficult time. question, "How can I help?"
Instead, take responsibility for a
specific task and tell the family when it will be completed. Even asking, "Could I mow your
lawn?" may result in a gentle brush-off for fear of imposition. Telling the person, "I'm going to
mow your lawn every Thursday" breaks down reservations.
If your neighbor is away at the hospital day and night, get their newspapers, mail or
deliveries. When you visit the hospital, deliver their personal cards, notes and letters, which
can provide comfort and support during long hours. Water their flowers and plants. Turn the
lights on and off to provide added security.


The mail, laundry and dust are bound to pile up when there's limited time at home. Offer to
clean the house, fold laundry or hire a cleaning person for the tasks.
2. Simplify Communication
Keeping people informed of an individual's medical condition and progress also can be a
major, and often hidden, stressor.
"It is emotionally draining and physically exhausting for family members of a patient to
repeat details of the treatment progress or latest test results with 10 people every day," said
Sona Mehring of CaringBridge. "It can be overwhelming and takes time away from their
loved one the person who really needs their attention." CaringBridge is a nonprofit service
providing free, private and personalized web sites that serve as communication and support
hubs during health care crises.
If you're close to the affected family or person, offer to set up a CaringBridge Web site. for
them (www.caringbridge.org). It takes two minutes and is easy to update, keeping all those
concerned regardless of their location apprised of any developments. The site allows an
author to post background on the individual's condition and diagnosis, provide updates with
regular journal entries, post photos, and link to other sites for medical information. Sites also
provide a guestbook for visitors to post personal notes, prayers and poems. And whenever a
journal update is made to the individual's site, registered visitors receive an e-mail notice
informing them of the update.
3. Help With Meals
Provide ready-to-cook meals, frozen and portioned according to the family's size. Many
online recipe sources allow you to customize recipes for families of two or 12. And be creative
- families are too often overwhelmed with large pasta dishes. Make-and-bake meal preparation
stores are convenient sources for unique, already-assembled meals.
Gift cards to fast-food or casual dining restaurants come in handy on busy days. For family
members who remain at home, go grocery shopping for staples like milk, bread, eggs, cereal,
-etc. Put the groceries away, and leave a note with meal suggestions for the week.
4. Take Care Of The Rest Of The Family
Maintaining a typical daily routine is unrealistic in the midst of a health care crisis: Kids,
however, still need to go to school or get to after-school activities. Offer to provide rides for
the kids or dinner for them before their evening activities. Life goes on and needs to,
especially for children.
Giving kids an outlet for fun can relieve stress and worry. Invite them to a sporting event,
the zoo or a movie with your children. Again, specifically say, ":We're picking up Brian at.6:45
for the high school football game; we'll be home at 10." This will give parents kid-free time to
decompress, run errands or catch up on much-needed sleep.
And don't forget about the four-legged family members. Offer to walk or feed the dog at a
specific time each day and follow through.
5. Don't Do It Alone
When a crisis strikes, many people truly want to help. Neighbors, colleagues, faith
communities and other groups can pool their energy and resources to help spread the
responsibilities among many people and reduce the strain over an extended period of time.
Supporting family, friends and neighbors through a time of medical crisis, uncertainty or
prolonged illness can be incredibly fulfilling and needn't be hard or burdensome. Your efforts
will be a welcome relief during long days.

Dear Classified Guys,
For my son's birthday I bought him a
parakeet from the pet store. The first
few weeks, the bird was singing and
whistling throughout the day. Then I
noticed the bird began to seem lone-
ly so I bought a second parakeet to
keep it company. Those two birds
got along great, too good in fact.
Before I knew it, we had four eggs
that quickly turned into four baby
birds. That's too many birds for this
household. So while reading your
column, before I lined the birdcage
(sorry about that), I was inspired to
place an ad to give them away. So far
everyone who has called wants to
know if the birds are male or female.
To be honest, I have no idea. I could-
n't even tell you which one was
the Mom. Can you help me
figure this out so I can give ,
them away? I promise I
won't use the classified to
line the birdcage anymore.

Cash: That seems like a fair trade.
Although it's great to see the classified
have so many uses! At least the birds
have some quality reading material as
well.
Carry: It can be difficult to determine
the gender for many breeds of birds.


There are people who get a pet bird and
quickly name is something like Johnny.
Then, they're really surprised when
'Johnny' lays eggs!
Cash: For many birds there ate no
observable differences between genders,
and behavior is rarely a good indicator.
For some breeds, a trip to your veteri-'
narian is the only way to find out.
Carry; Lucky for you, parakeets have
physical characteristics that can some-
times help identify their gender, at least
in the adult birds. Parakeets have a cere
or small bump above their beak that con-
tains the nostrils. In a mature male, the
cere is typically bright blue. In a female,


r 1


the cere is pink or reddish brown.
Cash: However on baby birds, like
the ones you'd like to give away, the
ceres will appear pale blue. The color
doesn't change until maturity, which can
take up to a year or so. That's probably
far longer than you'd like to keep the
birds.
Carry: Unless someone is pairing up
the birds for company or breeding, the
gender is rarely important. Since many
people are simply looking for a pet,
you're sure to find the birds a good home
very soon. In the meantime, at least
they'll enjoy our column at the bottom of
their cage.


For the Birds
When most people consider getting
a pet,.they think of a cute little puppy
or kitten. While these are the two
most popular pets found in 70 million
households, they are not for everyone.
That's why birds rank third in pet
ownership. Nearly 6.5 million house-
holds own a pet bird according to the
American Pet Products Association,
some 16 million birds in all. That's
more birds than there are feathers on
Sesame Street's Big Bird, which is a
mere 4000 feathers.
Quacked


If you have several pet birds that lay
eggs, you know how quickly the pop-
.ulation can expand. However, remov-
ing and destroying the eggs may not
be the best solution. Many bird
species will simply re-lay their eggs.
Instead, try the technique used by the
Department ofAgriculture to control
bird wildlife population. After your
birds lay their eggs, coat them with
vegetable oil. The oil prevents the
eggs from hatching by not allowing
air through the pores. Another effec-
tive option is called.egg addling,
which involves shaking the egg to
prevent hatching and returning it to
the nest.

Name Game
I'always wanted a pet parakeet
with a&great name. \\ hen I sa one
advertised "free to good home", I
seized the opportunity.
When I visited the owner, he intro-
duced me to the parakeet, Charles. I
was immediately disappointed with
the name and thought I'd have to
come up with a new one. That was
until he explained, "If you'd like, you
can also use his nickname."
As he placed Charle- on mni shoul-
der, he continued, "Then you can tell
people you have a 'Chip' on your
shoulder!"
(Thanks to Danny K.)

FAMILY FEATURES

* ich family traditions of fun and laughter
shared around the Easter and Passover
dinner table beckon for a fresh holiday .,
spread. Try one that captures awe with
new, inventive and delicious recipes. Greet your
family and guests' fancy for flavor with the sweet
and satisfying savor of figs. Figs add pizzazz and
texture to salads; a hearty richness to whole-grain'
side dishes; and a pleasant, subtle contrast to
such savory entrees as lamb, beef, pork, chicken
or fish. Follow the featured recipes for simple,
yet elegant holiday dishes.
Besides the sweet and full flavor that figs bring
to the table, they are a healthy ingredient with
dietary fiber, rich complex carbohydrates and
such essential minerals as potassium, iron and
calcium.
While shopping, look for Mission figs, which
are sweet and dark purple, or the lighter Golden
figs with their firm texture and nutty flavor. Both
varieties work equally well in recipes.
Explore many more delicious fig recipes by
visiting www.valleyfig.com.
