Students unite to stop

Ira Mikell
Free Press Reporter
Lafayette High School students are uniting
to kick bullying and disrespect off campus
and prevent these negative attitudes from re-
turning. They, like so many other high school
students across the country, have grown
weary of kids bullying each other and disre-
specting teachers, staff members and one an-
other.
Students at LHS have observed and have
felt the effects of being taunted themselves at
school for how they look, walk, dress, talk,
etc. Austin Anderson, a ninth grader, joined
the campaign and believes it is a worthy

News from our Military


Dear Lafayette County:
Greetings from Iraq! The
last month has passed
quickly. The Marine Corps,
who we work for has kept
us relatively busy since
we've been here. The
desert is beginning to
warm up, but when we
first arrived, we had to
wear long johns on our riv-
er patrols. Imagine that,
freezing temperatures in
the desert! I was surprised.
I hope that all is well in
my home county. I'm kind
of disconnected from the
outside world where I'm
staying. We're able to
watch the news every
great now and then and
the mail is sporadic in its
arrival. The culture here is
quite different, but for the
most part, the local Iraqis
want to get rid of terrorism
nearly as much as we do.
There were many cultur-
al don't that the Riverines
had to learn when we ar-
rived, such as never to pre-
sent our left hand to any-
one, or give the "thumbs
up" gesture, which are

both considered obscene.
Also, we were told never to
speak directly to the
women when entering a
house, because it's disre-
spectful. We thought it was
kind of weird at first, but
we are definitely adjusting
to the local customs.
I have learned several
Arabic terms, and my pla-
toon leader has decided to
make me an "interpreter"
of sorts. Arabic is a difficult
language to learn, because
unlike most European lan-
guages, it is not based on
Latin.
Well, that's how things
are going so far. I hope that
the good citizens of
Lafayette County are pray-
ing for the Riverines' brav-
ery in combat, and safe re-
turn home. I miss my home
dearly, and hope the time
continues to pass rapidly.

Patrice's School of Dance



performs at Daytona 500


submitted
This was a very exciting
trip for the 12 dancers that
went and danced at the
2007 Daytona 500 Tribute
to America Show presented
by Nextel featuring Kelly
Clarkson.
We started Saturday
morning at a local stadium
to begin a very long prac-
tice day. We were then
bused into the infield at
Daytona International
Speedway for a dress re-
hearsal and while waiting
to go on the field we
watched the final laps of
the Bush race. After sever-
al more hours of practice
Kelly Clarkson came out
.and gave the dancers a
short, but very up close
concert.
Sunday was filled with
excitement. To start the
day off we met Fox Sports
and Special Channel
NASCAR expert analyst,
Jeff Hammond. He is a
former championship win-
ning crew chief and was
very nice. Everyone was
lined up and ready to go
and all the NASCAR dri-
vers walked by going to
stand by their cars for the
pre-race show. The director
of the show remembered
us from last year and was
again so impressed with
our dance ability and pro-
fessionalism. The entire
front line was Patrice's
School of Dance and the
performance was great,
with a lot of energy. After.
dancing we walked along
pit road to meet a few dri-
vers like Kyle Bush and
Kasey Kahne.
We stayed for the race
and were able to watch
Topy Stewaut, Jiminie Tohn-
son,,Rvan Newman and
Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s pit
crew work on the wrecked
cars. After the exciting fin-


ish we stuck around for a
few autographs and to see
Jeff Gordon, Robby Gor-
don, Clint Bowyer, rookie
David Ragan and Speed
reporter Bob Dillner. After
watching Kevin Harvick


go into the winner circle it
was time to head home.

National Poison

Prevention Week

March 18-24, 2007



Although pesticides are thought to be beneficial to soci-
ety, they can be dangerous if used carelessly or if not
stored properly. According to data collected by the Flori-
da Poison Information Centers, in 2006 alone, an estimat-
ed 6,200 persons were involved in common household
pesticide-related poisonings or exposures in Florida, with
children being the number one victim.
These involved the accidental swallowing of the pesti-
cide by children, or getting it in the eye, on the skin, or in
the lungs during its application and use. In most cases, the
pesticide product label provides you with appropriate ad-
vice on how to use the product. These instructions should
be followed. On the other hand, if a poisoning occurs, do
not follow the treatment advice on the label, as it may be
wrong or outdated. Instead, call the poison information
center for specific advice to follow in emergencies.
Poison tip of the day: Teach children that pesticides are
poisonous and something that they should not touch; al-
ways store pesticides away from children's reach, in a
locked cabinet or secured garden shed. When applying or
using pesticides, follow the directions for use and take ap-
propriate precautions to protect you and your family from
accidental exposure, and keep the toll free national poison
emergency phone number 1-800-222-1222 near your
phone.
The Florida Poison Information Center-Jacksonville
would like you to celebrate a safe Poison Prevention
Week. The Center is sponsoring a free Pesticide Aware-
ness Fair, March 22, 9 a.m. 1 p.m. on the Shands Jack-
sonville Medical Center Campus. If you wish to learn
more about the fair or have a poison emergency, please
call the Poison Information Center toll free 24 hours a day,
at 1-800-222-1222.

PAGE 6A THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2007


Sfter re-reading a recent article where
I had commented on Blackshear's
Barbershop, I became aware that a
paragraph or two had been left off.
A page with some interesting com-
ments was still in my file so I decid-
ed that I would attend to that little discrepancy so here
it is.
One gentleman who worked at the barbershop for a
good while was Curtis Goodman. He cut my hair
many times and his adeptness and friendly personality
made the haircutting experience a pleasure. His tonsor-
ial proficiency was on the same level as Waymon
Blackshear's and I was equally satisfied with the hair-
cuts I got from either of these fine gentlemen so I just
lined up with everybody else and waited for the next
chair.
Curtis was in school learning the forestry business
and upon completion of his education he relinquished
his chair at Blackshear's and assumed a position with
Gilman Paper Company as forester, where he was
recognized for many important contributions to









the over-all operation and efficiency of
their re-forestation program before he retired.
He had built a home in Mayo but later returned to
his home ground in Day. He and his lovely wife both
were raised around Day and I may be mistaken but I
believe his dad had bIeen a barber in Day. I came to
know it as "Day Town" at one time many years ago. I
have many fond memories of times spent around there,
more specifically at Brew-
er Lake Baptist church
Nifty NiftYand the school auditori-
Sift um before it burned
Look Who's Fiftv sometimes in the 1950s,
where Halloween Carni-
vals were held and where
,the singing was carried
on during those "all day
singing and dinner on the
ground" festivities.
Many local groups per-
formed at those events
and the quality was su-
perb. Mr. Clayton Dees
and his wife, Mrs. Euphie
raised a family of musi-
cians and singers: Peggy,
Clyatte and Mary Martha
were all talented perform-
ers and they were among
the favorites that enter-
Love you, tained at those times. I
ove you, don't know where Peggy
Mom 34O835.F learned to play the piano,.


but she was of professional quality, at least to me.
Other groups came from near and far and it was an
experience not to be duplicated anywhere that I have a
recollection of. Of course there was food too, spread .
from one end of that long table to the other and as you
might imagine, the main attraction for us young boys
were all those beautiful girls that adorned that scene
with their presence. Easter was a special occasion also
when much celebrating was carried on in the same
manner and those lovely little ladies were everywhere,
dressed in their new dresses and enjoying the attention
that us giddy headed young boys were giving them.
During Curtis' tenure with Gilman I had the oppor-
tunity to make some very interesting observations of
his operation at the nursery where seedlings for the re-
forestation effort were raised. I was called there during
the time that I operat-


ed an air conditioning business and my services were
needed at the nursery where the stored pine seed were
maintained at a required temperature to insure their
quality before planting in the seed beds.
I remember having a little difficulty with whatever
was wrong with their cooling system and spent several
hours there, maybe on two different days. Curtis was
busy with his chores as he oversaw the work of several
people who were busy with their usual activities at this'
facility.
The employees had some tables outside the building
by a creek where they ate their lunch and over time
had attracted the attention of a nice size alligator that
had become accustomed to the morsels of food that
had been provided. I observed them patting the
ground on the bank of the creek and in short order that
rather large reptile would appear to accept his daily
nourishment. All seemed harmless enough and every-
one acted as though it were such a common occurrence
that there was no need for concern.
A little later, as I intently went about my business of
making repairs to their cooling system, and the others
had returned to their chores outside the building,
something appeared in the corner of my eye that got
my attention. I turned and came face to face with that
reptile as it stood there, poised, raised on it's four legs,
looking intently in my direction as though more food
was being considered.
Not being familiar with the proper procedure under
these circumstances I vacated the premises on short no-
tice and waited at a good distance until it decided on
other options and returned to the creek. As I continued
with the work at hand, I kept one eye on the door
through which that hungry denizen had appeared.I'
think Curtis was amused by that turn of events and
over the ensuring years, as opportunity allowed, he
and I laughingly exchanged little witticisms concerning


the events related above. Hmm-
mmmmmmmmmmm. .. :.
It would be remiss to pass ,
from this chat about Day not to
mention a very important con-
tribution that had it's origin .
there. The school there was Jr. .
High, through the 9th grade and .
then on to Mayo to finish high
school. They played sports there
too and some of the best athletes
that came to represent Lafayette
County as the high school level O.A. Winburn, Jr.
came from Day. I think those ScrubHammock@
boys were born with a basket- aol.com
ball in their hand.
I remember some of them,
several Buchanan boys, Dolan being about
the earliest one I can recall but later there
was Haze, Shunkie, Lavere and too many
to try to recall at this moment. Others
too, Wyatt Thomas, Harold Lloyd


t^6e


Smith, and a special mention of one
that I came to believe had more athletic ability than
anyone I have known, Clyatte Dees. He was quite an
athlete and kept physically able to perform at the high-
est level. I won't elaborate on how those boys treated
their fellow athletes at Mayo when competing against
them but it was not something I care to recall.
Day as well as most other communities had a base-
ball team and they had a good one. Bo Buck could toss
that thing about as good as anyone and Dale and the
others completed the team along with' other members
of the community. I once hit a homerun there when
Mayo was the visiting team. I remember Dale chiding
me as I took the bat to the plate. "Throw him a bag of
milk chow," he said to Bo, referring to my being a
helper in my daddy's store where feed was sold. I got
lucky and hit one into that cypress pond. I don't think
I ever hit another one. And of course, over time Ker-
win Bell came along and put Mayo and Day on the
front page of the sports scene as he led the Florida
Gators as quarterback, and now, finally at this present
time, having led the local Trinity Catholic team from
here in Ocala to the state championship, has accepted
the head football coach position at the University of
North Florida. Best wishes, Kerwin.

Lamb is retiring from a job
that's meant so much to her
and her community.
During her career she has
served as a correspondent,
reporter and editor for sever-
al newspapers and other
publications. Lamb served as
the managing editor for the
Suwannee Democrat twice,
including the last 11 years.
Being a reporter wasn't
something Lamb set out to
do. It just happened. In 1978
when her son entered
kindergarten, she needed
something to do in the morn-


ings before picking him up.
One day Lamb took a trip to
the Suwannee Democrat to
visit her friend Janie Mur-
phy, then editor. She asked
her friend, "Janie, I need
something to do in the morn-
ing. You got anything?"
Murphy's response was
quick. "Yeah, I'll make a re-
,porter out of you," she said.
Soon after, Lamb was giv-
en her first writing assign-
ment a feature story about
a man whose friends were
helping make his life-long
dream a reality. The man, 70-
something, was sick and was
not expected to live long. His


dream was to float down the
Suwannee River on a raft,
and his friends were deter-
mined to make that happen.
Lamb visited the man's
home and watched while his
friends built the raft in his
front yard. It was her first
chance to connect with the
community as a reporter. To
touch a life she may never
have been able to know or
reach.
Lamb had never written
before, other than to submit
community events to the
newspaper.
"I was hooked at that
point," she said of her first
few writing experiences.
After only three months

spearheaded this project
since the day a mother of
one of her students came to
talk to her about her
daughter being bullied con-
stantly at LHS. This moth-
er, according to Shiver, was
thinking about taking her
daughter out of LHS be-
cause the taunting was be-
coming unbearable. Shiver
also said the daughter was
very much like her own
daughter, Mary-Kathryn,
who was a victim of bully-
ing.
After talking with her,
Shiver began to put the
anti-bullying, anti-disre-
specting campaign together
with the help of Anderson
and other LHS students.
According to Shiver, this
campaign is being done in
Mary-Kathryn's honor who
passed away sometime
ago. "I promised my
daughter the day we
buried her that her life
would'count for some-
thing. I would tell her story
over and over until stu-
dents understand that the
bullying has to stop some-
where," Shiver said.
Shiver continues to work
hard to encourage as many
students as she can to be-


come involved and protect
each other from being hurt
as well as others. Their ef-
forts to tighten the noose
on violence on campus is
paying off. Since the cam-
paign began, many stu-
dents have joined, and oth-
ers are considering mem-
bership, according to Shiv-
er. Shiver.also said since
the inception of this cam-
paign, there have been less
signs of bullying and disre-
spect at the school. "Stu-
dents at LHS are learning
that not only is it important
not to bully others, but it is
also not right to stand by
and let others be bullied.
With the crisis that this
country faces with violence
in the public schools, these
students have decided to
wage war on disrespect
and violence," Shiver said.
As Shiver and participat-
ing LHS students work to-
gether to bring about
change, they have encoun-
tered some who believe
they are just wasting their
time and should focus on
doing something else. Ac-
cording to Shiver, these in-
dividuals whom they have
met along the way have
told her that-speaking,out
'against bullying exacer-
bates the problem, making


the situation worse than it
already is. Shiver also said-
her opponents were trying
to encourage her to stop
making a big deal out of it,
ignore the problem, and let
it vanish away.
Despite the bumps in the
road, Shiver said they will

she received a phone call
from the editor of the Talla-
hassee Democrat with the of-
fer to be a correspondent.
"He called me and said, 'I
need a freelance reporter
over here, and I've been read-
ing your stuff.' And I was
hired," she said.
When Lamb first became a
correspondent she was paid
only $8 per story, averaging
about $300 a month. And she
earned every penny.
"Sometimes the stories
would take 10-12 hours to
do" depending upon the sto-
ry, she said.
The job as a freelancer paid
off in other ways by giving
Lamb the opportunity to stay


at home with her four chil-
dren.
Her hard work paid off,
too.
It was only about a year af-
ter Lamb had chosen the pro-
fession, that she was faced
with covering two of the
biggest criminal cases she
says were handled by the
Third Circuit Court. Ted
Bundy, a serial killer, had es-
caped from prison and made
his way to Tallahassee and
then to Lake City. Bundy
raped and killed a 12-year-
old girl from Lake City and
brought her to Live Oak to
dump the body.
As a correspondent, Lamb
didn't write the initial stories
on the Bundy case. But the
trust she'd developed with
her sources in the communi-
ty was perhaps the only way
the other reporters could
gain information for the sto-
ries.
Over the years Lamb has
covered many hard-hitting
events. Lamb remembers the
time 1-10 had a 22 car pile up
that killed four people. She
got busy and did what jour-
nalists do. She requested that
Suwannee Democrat Pub-
lisher Myra Regan call for a
plane to get photos.

to think forward enough to
make sure we had air-cover-
age of this huge accident,"
said Regan. "A newspaper in
our group worked quickly to
'get a photographer in the air.
They were there within the
hour." Lamb described the
event as "the most awful
thing I have seen in my life."
Though the job forced her
to cover many stories that
seemed grim, Lamb consid-
ered that an opportunity to
make a difference in the com-
munity. If it was a court case
or drug bust, she saw it as an
opportunity to further justice
or comfort those involved.
Lamb credited the people
of Suwannee County and
God for her success.
"It was not about me but
about the community. But, I
couldn't have done it with-
out the Lord," she said.
"I'll miss all the wonderful
people I've worked with. I
appreciate all the kindness
people have shared with me
over the years," she said.
Lamb is retiring to allow
time for family and garden-
ing. She will miss the news-
paper but will still be
around.
Lamb's last day on the job
was March 9.

Mercedes powers Hornets past Bell


by Ed Taylor, Sports Correspondent
Everyone would love to drive a Mercedes! However,
the Bell Bulldogs would love to have one playing third
base for them after the Lafayette Hornets posted a 15-7
win over the visiting Bulldogs last week. Chris Mer-
cedes was a one-man wrecking crew both on defense as


well as offense. Mercedes blasted a sixth inning three-
run home run in bringing the Hornets back from a 7-6
deficit en route to their sixth win of the season. He fin-
ished with four runs batted in.
The Hornets had plenty of hits in their bats as they
collected 17 safeties in the game. Aaron Gresham had


two doubles as part of his three hit night. Thomas Byrd
continues to swing a hot bat for the Hornets collecting
three base hits. Cody Singletary delighted the Hornet
fans with his speed on the base paths as he collected an

Sports Correspondent
The Lafayette Lady Hornets con-
tinue to have trouble making contact
but for Lindsey Hamlin the hits
seem to come easy. The Lady Hor-
nets collected but six hits in a 10-0
district win over rival Branford last
Friday night. Four of those hits came
off the bat of Hamlin.and they were
not scratch hits. She finished with
two singles, double and triple, scor-
ing three times and collecting three
runs batted in.
Hamlin not only demonstrated her
talent with the bat but from the
mound as well. Hamlin hurled six


innings of shutout softball, striking
out 11 batters while walking but one.
She scattered three Branford hits.
Hamlin got the side in order in the
first and second inning before walk-
ing Jenie Gomth to start the Lady
Bucs third inning. Hamlin came back
and struck out the next three batters
to retire the side. She did not allow a
hit until Shauna Nettles singled with
two out in the fourth. Hamlin got
Crystal Bass on strikes to end the
frame.
Hamlin picked up her first hit in
the opening inning when she singled
to centerfield but was left stranded.
The Lady Hornets pushed across a


run in their half of the second to take
a 1-0 lead. Lafayette loaded the bases
against Branford's starter Kelly
Thomas. Marla Alcazar scored on a
wild pitch.
Lafayette reached Thomas for
three runs in the third inning when
Kaily Sapp walked to start the in-
ning and stole second. She later
scored when Hamlin doubled to
right centerfield. Hamlin reached
third on a passed ball and scored
when Ashley Myers grounded out to

Ethan Perry carried the
big bat in the Hornets first
inning with two hits in
two at bats in the frame.
He had four runs batted in
for the Hornets. Ben Bell
and Alex Gresham had
RBI singles in the same in-
ning as did Corey Smith,
Austin Anderson and
Kade Bell. The Hornets
collected 10 hits in the first
inning alone.
The junior Hornets
pushed across three runs

help of some shaky field-

inning.
Perry started for the

In the bottom of the

starter Ty Smith. After
Greshem reached Mer-
cedes caught Smith off-
speed pitch and deposited
well over the left center-
field wall for his three-run
blast. With two out, Colby
Keen singled and stole
second and came home on
Hempstead's RBI single.
Singletary hit a scream-
ing drive to straight away
centerfield where it took a
bounce over the center-
fielder's head and roll to
the wall. Singletary circled


the bases well before the
ball made it back to the
infield. Skelly kept the in-
ning going with a base hit.
He stole second and scam-
pered home on Gresham's
second double of the
game. Gresham scored on
Mercedes second hit of
the night.
Knight got the Bulldogs
in the top of the seventh
without any damage be-
ing done.
Hempstead retired the
first two batters he faced
in the Bell half of the first
inning but gave up back-
to-back singles before he
got Smith off a fly ball to
Byrd in left field to end
the inning leaving both


runners stranded. The
Hornets jumped in front

when Byrd led off with a
base hit and Skelly fol-
lowed with a line drive to
right center. Gresham's

Walker's first hit of the
game.

time getting a lead off
walk to Kacey Wofford
who later scored on
Jamie Sly's RBI single to
make it a 2-2 game. After
the Lady Hornets went
out in order in the bot-
tom of the fourth, Tren-
ton plated three runs in
the bottom of the fifth to
lead 5-2. The big hit in
the inning for the Lady

trouble leaving a runner
stranded. The Lady Hor-

wild pitch to make it a 4-0
game.
The Lady Hornets ex-
ploded for four runs in the
bottom of the fourth in-
ning in going in front 8-0.
The big hit in the inning
was Hamlin's two-run
triple, a ball that came


close to leaving the ball
park hitting high off the
centerfield fence. Natalie
Land, with one out, tripled
down the leftfield line
ahead of Hamlin. Sapp
walked in the middle of
the two three-baggers and
scored along with Land on
the Hamlin hit. Alcazar
picked up an RBI single in
the inning.


After Hamlin handled
the Lady Bucs in the fifth
and sixth inning Lafayette
sent the crowd home an
inning earlier with two
runs in the bottom of the
sixth inning for a 10-0
game. Hamlin led off the
inning with her fourth hit
of the game. Katie Jo
Walker reached on a two-
base throwing error from


the pitcher. Hamlin scored
on a wild pitch and Walk-
er came home on a passed
ball to end the game.
Lafayette coach Derek
Garland said his\team is
starting to come together
as a team. "We are not hit-
ting the ball like we should
be," he said, "But we are
playing better on the
field."


Barnes

New research indicates that
breads and other carbohydrates
may be more detrimental to
heart health than some fats.

For years, people watching
their weight or attempting to
stay heart-healthy operated un-
der the assumption and guid-
ance from dieticians that fat
was worse for their hearts and
weight than carbohydrates.
However, conventional wis-
dom just may have been incor-
rect, as recent reports indicate
the opposite.
In late 2006, researchers at
the Harvard School of Medi-
cine revisited the controversy
regarding fats, carbs and heart
health, spurred on by the belief
that low-carb diets, such as the
popular Atkin's Diet, couldn't
possibly be healthy. What they
have found just may shock
those who thought baked pota-
toes were better than slabs of
cheese. A study published in
the New England Journal of
Medicine looked at the rela-
tionship between low-carbo-
hydrate dieting and heart dis-
ease risk in more than 80,000
women assessed over 20
years. The results found that
low-carb eating was not asso-
ciated with an increased risk of
heart disease. After coming to
these conclusions, researchers
further delved by assessing the
relationship between heart dis-
ease risk and something
known as the 'glycemic load'
of a diet. Glycemic load is
measured by the glycemic in-
dex (GI) of food, or more sim-
ply, the speed and extent of
sugar release from a particular
food when digested. Usually
the higher the GI the the more
insulin secreted by the body
and the greater the risks for
health problems, since excess
insulin production is linked to
an increased occurrence of
obesity, type 2 diabetes and
heart disease.
Many carbohydrates are nu-
trient-rich and have a low GI,
such as several fruits and veg-
etables. However, it is the
starchy staples that the public
was once encouraged to eat in
abundance, such as grains and
pastas, that have a high
glycemic load and have the
potential for health implica-
tions, especially when con-
sumed in abundance.
So, does this mean a person
should load up on fats and
think heart disease is a distant
memory? Probably not. Most
diets that propose a radical
change of eating habits are
largely unhealthy, according to
most professionals. If you
have any doubts about what to
eat, practicing moderation is
the safest route to take and one
that ensures your body is re-
ceiving all of the nutrients it
needs to function optimally.

The local chapter of the Na-
tional Wild Turkey Federation
will host a Women in the Out-
doors event Friday-Saturday,
March 16-17 at The Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park and
Campground, US 129 North,
Live Oak.
"Our program is about en-
couraging women to try new
outdoor activities in a safe en-
vironment that makes them
feet at ease," said Rob Keck,
NWTF CEO. "This event is
also a chance for women of all
walks of life-singles, moms,
daughters, young and old-to
spend a weekend outdoors,
away from home, hanging out
and having fun."
Women in the Outdoors
uses expert instructors to teach
outdoor skills using a hands-
on approach. Events are held
across the country and often
include activities involving
fishing, recreational shooting,
camping and boating. By also
encouraging a greater aware-
ness of the country's natural
resources, events create out-
door convictions that are im-
portant to the future success of
wildlife conservation and the
preservation of North Ameri-
ca's hunting traditions.
At this particular event we
will offer classes in the follow-
ing: archery, canoe/kayak,
skeet shooting, introduction to
handguns, dutch oven cooking,
outdoor crafts, birdwatching,
fishing, horseback riding and
self-defense for women.
According to a recent study
commissioned by the NWTF
and funded through a grant
from the US Fish and Wildlife
Service, program participants
have increased their involve-
ment by more than 40 percent
in fishing, hiking, backpack-
ing, camping, wildlife habitat,
hunting, shooting, birdwatch-
ing and outdoor photography.
(Checkout the study, news re-
lease and photos at
"http://www.nwtf.org/women_
inthe_outdoors report.html)."
The combination of spon-
sorship and local chapter sup-
port allows the NWTF to offer
these programs at a low cost to
participants. The cost of at-


tending each event includes a
membership in the Women in
the Outdoors program and a
subscription to Women in the
Outdoors magazine, the Feder-
ation's full-color, quarterly
publication with articles and
information on various out-
door adventures and activities.
"The Women in the Outdoors
program allows the NWTF to
reach an entirely new audi-
ence, one that has the potential
to benefit conservation ef-
forts," said Keck. "It's an op-
portunity for women to find
great satisfaction and enjoy-
ment in the outdoors."

tact Patty Molinaro, 904-210-

About Women in the Out-
doors
Part of what has made the
NWTF such a successful hunt-
ing and conservation organi-
zation is its willingness to in-
volve family. In the late 1990s,
the Federation began its
Women in the Outdoors pro-
gram. The intent was to pro-
vide interactive outdoor op-
portunities (including fishing,
hiking, mountain biking,
shooting, hunting and garden-
ing) for women nationwide.
That mission and much more
have been accomplished. To-
day, nearly 44,000 women are
members of this program, and
events are held in every U.S.
state and several Canadian
provinces.
About the NWTF
In 1973, when the National
Wild Turkey Federation was
founded, there were an esti-
mated 1.3 million'wild turkeys
and 1.5 million turkey hunters.
Thanks to the work of wildlife
agencies and the NWTF's
many volunteers and partners,
today there are more than 7
million wild turkeys and nearly
3 million turkey hunters. Since
1985, the NWTF and its coop-
erators have spent more than
$230 million upholding hunt-
ing traditions and conserving


more than 11.3 million acres
of wildlife habitat.
. The NWTF is a nonprofit or-
ganization with 545,000 mem-
bers in 50 states, Canada,
Mexico and 14 other foreign
countries. It supports scientific
wildlife management on pub-
lic, private and corporate'
lands as well as wild turkey
hunting as a traditional North
American sport.

tion, call 803-637-3106, check

Florida Park Service launches destination



maps of Suwannee River Wilderness Trail


National Geographic

Map provides physical
and recreational details

of the Trail

The Florida Park Services recently un-
veiled a multimedia map system providing
detailed information about the Suwannee
River Wilderness Trail. The Park Service
contracted with National Geographic to
produce both print and electronic destina-
tion maps providing comprehensive infor-
mation on physical details and activities
along the trail.
"The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is
an exceptional outdoor recreational experi-
ence that draws thousand of visitors to one
of Florida's most renowned rivers and
boost local economies," said Florida De-
partment of Environmental Protection
(DEP) Secretary Colleen M. Castille. "The
detailed print and interactive electronic
maps will help promote one of the state's
most historic rivers, scenic state parks and
North Florida's rural cultural heritage."
Developed during the last two years, the
destination maps provide information
about the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail, including the multitude of recre-
ational opportunities offered along the
170-mile trail. The companion maps are a
part of the National Geographic geo-
tourism series and available both on-line


and by request.
"The destination map encourages veteran
adventurers and newcomers alike to come
explore the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail," said Florida Park Service Director
Mike Bullock. "Visitors can plan and en-
hance their Suwannee River Wilderness
adventure by utilizing these comprehensive
resources."
Initiated by Governor Jeb Bush in 2002,
The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a
partnership program between DEP,' the
Suwannee River Water Management Dis-
trict and businesses and communities along
the river. The trail provides visitors an op-
portunity to navigate the world-famous
Suwannee with convenient rest stops locat-
ed at one-day intervals. From tents and
cabins to motels, hotels and bed & break-
fast inns, eight regional 'hubs' with exist-
ing infrastructure and recreational opportu-
nities will offer various resting and lodging
choices along the way.
Florida's state park system is one of the
largest in the country.with 159 parks span-
ning more than 725,000 acres and more
than 100 miles of sandy white beach. From
swimming and diving in rivers and springs
to birding and fishing or hiking and riding
on natural scenic trails, Florida's state
parks offer year-around outdoor activities
for all ages. Battle reenactments and Na-
tive American festivals celebrate Florida's
unique history, while art shows, museums
and lighthouses offer a window into Flori-
da's cultural heritage.

Public Service Announcement No. 3


Dealing with


debt collectors


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 ex-
ample, explainto the debt collec-
tor, "I have to pay my rent and
utility bills first I have been re-
cently laid-off, when I get a new
job I will do my best to meet my
debt."
What can a debt collector real-
ly do?
A debt collector collecting a
debt of the creditor can do little
more than demand payment. If
the creditor 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 un-
avoidable when you cannot pay
most of your debts on time.)
3. Sue you in court. Although
the threat to sue you may be very
upsetting, it is not nearly as seri-
ous as you might think. Many
creditors do not follow through
on their threats. If they do sue
you, you can represent yourself,
and explain why you cannot 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 give the creditor the
right to try to seize part of your
wages or particular property. If
you do not own very much or if
you do not earn very much, cred-
itors will not be able to seize any
of your property or wages even
though they have a court judg-


ment against you. Only if you are
hiding assets can a creditor seize
wages or property before a judg-
ment; they cannot send the con-
sumer to jail or send the con-
sumer's children to foster care.
How can I stop being ha-
rassed?
Federal law prohibits harass-
ment 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 per-
mission. They also may not use
obscene or profane language or
call you constantly to annoy you.
Some states also have laws that
provide 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
prevent you form paying all of
your bills, call the creditor and
explain your situation. Explain
that you have to pay the landlord
and utilities 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 contact-
ing the creditor first, you may
avoid having the debt turned over
to a collection agency, which will
usually be less flexible than the
creditor in working out a pay-
ment plan.
2. Write a cease letter. If ex-
plaining the situation doesn't
stop collection efforts, the sim-
plest way to stop contacts is to
write the collector a cease letter.
Federal law requires collection
agencies to stop dunning after
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 futue, though thiis


not necessary. You should also
note in the letter any billing er-
rors and/or abusive tactics debt
collectors have used in their con-
tacts with you. Be sure to keep a
copy of the letter. Following is a
sample letter:

Date
Name of collection agency*
Address
Dear Sir:
I am writing to request that
you stop communication to me
about my account number __
with (name of creditor) as re-
quired by the Fair Debt Collec-
tion Practices Act U.S.C.
1692c(c).
I will take care of this matter
when I can. Your cooperation
will be appreciated.
Very truly yours,
Your name -
Your address

3. Have a lawyer write a cease
letter. You don't need a lawyer to
write a cease letter, but if your
letter does not stop the harass-
ment, a letter from a lawyer usu-
ally will. Also, collection agen-
cies must stop contacting your
once they know you are repre-
sented by a lawyer.
4. Work out a payment plan. If
you decide to work out a pay-
ment plan, you should only agree
to a realistic plan, preferably one
that significantly reduces the
debt In making 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 utilities.
5. Complain about billing er-
rors. Collection letters are some-
times in error. If a letter contains
a mistake, you should write and
request a correction (and keep a
copy of your request.). If you dis-


pute the debt in writing within 30
days of your receiving notice of
the right to dispute, the collection
. agency must stop collection ef-
forts while it investigates. If the
account is an open-end account,
like a credit card, you can dispute
a charge within 60 days of re-
ceiving the bill. .
6. Complain to a government
agency. Mail any complaint you
have about a collector's conduct
to the Federal Trade Commis-*
sion, Bureau of Consumer Pro-
tection, Washington, D.C. 20580,
to the consumer protection divi-
sion 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 consumer affairs. Send a copy
of the letter to the collector.
7. File bankruptcy. Filing
bankruptcy will instantly and ef-
fectively stop all debt collection
of any kind. Often simpler and
less expensive action will resolve
debt collection harassment, but
bankruptcy should not be a casu-
al-decision, and a competent pro-
fession should be consulted be-
fore any bankruptcy case is initi-
ated.
8. Sue the debt collector. The
federal Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act allows you to sue
debt collectors which violate the
Act's provisions. Statutory dam-
ages up to $1,000, actual dam-
ages, costs and attorney's fees are
available to persons who bring
successful actions. Consult an at-
torney to discuss such litigation.
The foregoing advice is pro-
vided by lawyers at Three Rivers
Legal Services, Inc., a non-profit
corporation which receives funds
from various local agencies and
individuals, as well as from the
federal government through Le-


gal Services. Corporation (LSC).
For specific advice on your par-
ticular situation, they suggest that
you consult with a lawyer ofyour
choosing. If you cannot afford a


lawyer, you may call your local
legal services office at 386-752-
5960 in Lake City to find out if
you qualify for free legal assis-
tance.


CONSUMER ALERT

Attorney General McCollum warns


consumers of tax
As Flondians prepare to file
their annual tax returns, Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum
recently warned consumers
about potential scams which
are prevalent during tax sea-
son.
Among the most common
of these is "phishing." which
occurs when individuals pose
as Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) employees and send
consumers e-mails seeking
personal information, alleged-
ly for the purpose of process-
ing refunds. E-mail headers
generally appear official with
language such as "'Refund No-
tice" or other innocuous sub-
ject lines. These commumnca-
tions seek to lure taxpayers
into supplying names, social
security numbers, credit card
information and other person-
al identification information.
The IRS does not send e-mails
asking for personal informa-
tion to process refunds. Con-
sumers can visit the agency's
Web site at
bttp:/,www.[RS.gov and click
on "Where's My Refund" to
check on the status of their re-
funds.
Another scheme which of-
ten surfaces during tax season
is an e-mail campaign from
counterfeit charities seeking
contributions. The simulated
"charities" then claim the con-
tributions uill reduce the con-
sumers' tax liability. Social
Security refund scams are also
common, which are based on
offers of social security tax re-
funds, even though no such
refund exists. In this scheme,
an offer is made to file the re-


time scams
fund for a fee to the consumer
of which a percentage of the
anticipated refund Ls requested
up front.
Attorney General McCol-
lum offered the following rec-
ommendations to consumers
in order for them to avoid
falling prey to tax time scam-
mers:
Never give out personal
identification information to
anyone who is soliciting motn-
ey.
Do not respond to e-mails
asking for information relat-
ing to refunds. The IRS's Web
site is the legitimate source for
checking on refund status.
Do not give third. parties
money for income taxes on
prizes. A legitimate prize dis-
tributor must send prize recip-
ients the IRS form 1099
which states the value of the
prize won and must be filed
with a consumer's tax return.
Research charities before
sending them money and do
not respond to e-mail solicita-
tions for money. The Better
Business Bureau has a charity
research page at
http://www.bbb.org which
helps identify legitimate char-
ities.
Do not let anyone purport-
ing to be an agent for the IRS
into your home unless he or
she has proper identification.
Consumers who believe
they may be victims of fraud
may contact the Attorney
General's fraud hotline toll-
free at 866-9-NO-SCAM
(866-966-7226) or file a com-
plaint on-line at
http://myfloridalegal.com.

For many college students,
spring break at the beach is the
reward for months of study dur-
ing the long, cold winter. As ir-
resistible as it may seem to
overindulge in sun and fun,
don't break up the party with a
trip to the emergency depart-
ment.
American College of Emer-
gency Physicians (ACEP) Presi-
dent Dr. Brian Keaton says
emergency physicians see many
serious injuries during spring
break, and advance planning
and common sense should be as
essential to a student's travel
plans as a bikini and a boogie
board
"The fastest way to ruin a
good vacation is to overdo it,
whether that means excessive
sun exposure, sports injuries, or
overindulgence in alcohol," said
Dr. Keaton. "Every year, emer-
gency physicians treat college
students who have left good
judgment behind, along with
their textbooks."
So don't let the pleasure turn
into pain:
If you are under the legal
drinking age, don't drink alco-
hol.
If you are of legal drinking
age, drink responsibly, and nev-
er combine alcohol with driving,
boating or swimming.
Do not get into a car with a
driver who has been drinking.
Wear a life jacket at all times
when boating.
Wear sunscreen with the
maximum level of sun protec-
tion, and plan outdoor activities
for before 10 a.m. and after 3
p.m.
Drink plenty of water, espe-
cially when in dithe sun or per-
spiring heavily.
Take it easy with athletic ac-
tivities after an inactive winter
and get training fiom a profes-


sional, particularly for water
sports such as surfing and water-
skiing.
Swim with a buddy, even if
you are very experienced; be
aware of any rip tides in your
area and learn how to swim out
of one should you get caught
Get enough sleep, as many
bad decisions are the result of
sleep deprivation.
The best protection against
sexually transmitted diseases
and unintended pregnancies is
abstinence. If you do have sex,
use a condom.
If traveling with a group, re-
sist the urge to "go along to get
along" if risky activities are sug-
gested.
Don't visit unfamiliar areas
by yourself, especially at night.
Take medications and proof
of insurance with you.
Program your cell phone
with I-C-E (in case of emer-
gency), and identify a person
and phone number that emer-
gency medical services can con-
tact just in case you do end up at
the hospital and cannot speak for
yourself.
"Emergency physicians were
all college students too at one
time," said Dr. Keaton. "We just
want you to enjoy your vacation
without a trip to the hospital."
ACEP is a national medical
specialty society representing
emergency medicine with more
than 25,000 members. ACEP is
committed to advancing emer-
gency care through continuing
education, research and public
education. Headquartered in
Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53
chapters representing each state,
as well as Puerto Rico and the
District of Columbia. A Govern-
ment Services Chapter repre-
sents emergency physicians em-
ployed by military branches and
other government agencies.

Quilt preparation presentation-
Many quilters enjoy making quilt tops, however, they are
not skilled at machine quilting and may not have the time or
skills to hand quilt. In this case, they may want to have
someone with a specialized quilting machine, called a long-
arm quilter, do the quilting for them. The long-arm quilter is
called that due to its unique shape designed to be able to sew
on the very large surfaces of quilts. On Tuesday, March 20, at
11 a.m., in the Extension office located at 1302 Eleventh St.
SW, Live Oak, Glenda Jensen will teach how to prepare a
quilt top to be quilted on a long-arm quilting machine. The
presentation is free to the public but you are asked to call

the area. This offer is free of charge and you are
S under no obligation.

The revolutionary 100% Digital instruments are

If you wish to participate, you will be required to have your hearing tested in
our office FREE OF CHARGE to determine candidacy. You will be asked to

period.

At the end of this period, you may purchase the instrument, if you so desire,
at a significantly reduced charge. Otherwise, there is no fee whatsoever for
participating in this field test. Special testing will be done to determine the
increased benefits of this technology.

Benefits of hearing aid vary by type and degree of hearing loss, noise
environment, accuracy of hearing test, and proper fit. This is a wonderful
opportunity to determine if hearing help is available for your hearing loss
while you evaluate your performance with this technology!

Simply taking a walk with the family can be a way to integrate exercise into busy schedules.
4. Make mundane activities fitness-friendly: Just tackling chores
around the house can add up to a workout. Vigorous housecleaning,
including mopping and vacuuming can burn between 180 and 130

gardening, playing with the kids or joining a sports team can be fun
ways to bum calories and won't seem like exercise at all.
5. Vary your routine: The same activities everyday can grow tedious
over time, causing you to slack off. Make a list of activities that you
enjoy (horseback riding, hiking, in-line skating) and integrate them into
your exercise routine. Not only will you be mentally recharged, but
you'll work different muscles and areas of the body depending upon the
activity.
6. Get others involved: Any exercise can be more enjoyable with a_'-
friend or partner, even if it's just the loyal family dog.-Parents can even
take young children out for walks or outings at a park, helping to foster
a love of exercise at a young age. Industrious workers can broach the
topic of setting up a company-sponsored sports team or exercise club at
work on company time. This way, friendly coworkers can enjoy
exercising together and not have to cut into their own time.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
My co-worker and I worked along
side each other for three years. Over
that time, we became friends and I
got to know her quite well. Although
she is a very nice person, she has
always had a terrible work ethic,
commonly coming in late and mak-
ing mistakes throughout the day.
Her track record finally caught up
with her. A few weeks ago she was
let go for poor job performance. Now
she is looking for a new job and is
answering ads in the classified. As
part of her job search, she asked if I
would be a reference for her. My
problem is I agree with her employer.
Although she's a nice person, she is
a terrible employee. If someone
should call, I'm not comfortable
with lying about her abilities.
However, I also know she '4 ,
needs the money and the A-
job. Any suggestions on
what I should do if the phone
rings on this matter?


Cash: Let it go to voicemail! You're
in a tough position. Balancing friends
and business is always a difficult matter.
Carry: It sounds like you're strug-
gling with being honest with your
friend. However, if she does have some


bad habits that inhibit her job perform-
ance, maybe she needs someone to tell
her the truth so she can improve.
Cash: It's also possible that your
friend didn't enjoy her previous position
or it didn't match her strongest skills.
That is often enough to keep employees
from performing to the best of their
abilities. Maybe finding a new position
that she truly enjoys will improve her
proficiency.
Carry: As for being a reference for
your friend, you have to be honest. The
only thing worse than lying to your
friend would be giving a lousy recom-
mendation to her potential employer.
You'd be a much better friend by telling


her that you're not comfortable with
being a reference.
Cash: As an alternative, you could
still help herjob search by offering a
letter of recommendation. Writing a let-
ter would allow you to collect your
thoughts and offer a brief summary of
her positive traits. If she was working
by your side for two years, you must
have noticed some positive points.
Carry: Putting your thoughts on
paper allows you to avoid talking with
employers, yet still offers your friend
some assistance in finding a new job.
Cash: With any luck, your friend
will find a new job and take you out to
dinner as a thank you.

Referees
"References available upon request."
This is standard language at the bottom
of most resumes. However, if you're
going to use the phrase, be prepared with
quality references. In today's profes-
sional world, you need people who can
attest to your work ethic, offer, examples
of your professional accomplishments
and present you in a positive light. Let
your references know about your goals
and who may contact them. Prepare
them by giving them a copy of your
resume and after you land that new job,
be sure to thank them for their efforts.
Terminated
Donald Trump has made a television
name for himself by firing his applicants.
However, being fired for the rest of us
isn't so glamorous. If you're faced with
the harsh reality of being fired, remem-
ber to stay positive. While it's easy to
dwell on the "woe is me", it's much more
important to focus on your future. Start
building your resume and applying for
new jobs immediately. Keep a positive
outlook about finding a new position.
Your confident attitude will come
through during your job interviews.

Screening Process
I own a local auto parts store and
am always in need of good counter
help. Last time I advertised, one
gentleman named Jimmy applied.
He was very nice, had a great knowl-
edge of cars and seemed eager for a
full-time job.
As I ran through his application, I
noticed his work experience had a
few gaps so I decided to call one of
his references. The gentleman told
me he remembered Jimmy from
years ago. "He was always on his
best behavior," he explained. "I
knew him for about two years and
three months."
Rather surprised by his response, I
asked him how he could be so defini-
tive on the time frame.
"That's easy," he replied. "I was his
warden."
(Thanks to Frank M)

Buying a

The following is a list of helpful tips to follow when prepar-
ing to participate in a J.W. Hill and Associates Auction. We hope
they are helpful and make your participation in a J.W. Hill and
Associates auction successful and easy.
The professionals at J.W. Hill and Associates are prepared to
supply you with information, over the telephone 386-362-3300
or toll-free, 888-821-0894) or e-mail jwhillandassociates@ya-
hoo.com, concerning specific properties as well as the auction
process itself. Take a minute and contact us now.
Find out as much as you can about the property.
Take full advance of any inspections conducted by J.W. Hill
& Associates or schedule a private site viewing. This will allow
you or your representative to see first hand what you are bidding
on and help determine value and desirability. This allows you to
bid with confidence.
Increase your comfort level by knowing your mortgage
qualifications.. Even before you decide on a property to buy, you
should prequalify yourself through your banker. There is never
a mortgage contingency in a real estate auction. It is best to
know you can pay for the property before you bid. Now you can
be able to bid with confidence!
Check the local newspapers or join our mailing list for auc-
tions in your area.
Attend and observe one or more auctions and familiarize
yourself with the process before you attend an auction as a bid-
der. The auction process happens quickly, so knowing what to
expect is important, when your time comes to buy. If you can't
find an auction, call 386-362-3300 or toll-free 888-821-0894.
Determine your bid limit after examination of the property
and all available information. Don't be afraid to bid early. Most
other bidders will be willing to pay just as much as you. The one
who bids the number first, wins that day.
On auction day, it is to your advantage to arrive at the auc-
tion site one hour before the auction. By doing so, you will have
more time to consult with on-site staff who are prepared to as-
sist you with your last minute questions regarding the property
and the auction process. Upon completion of registration you
will receive a bid number, terms of the sale, and other important
auction day information.
If you are the successful high bidder at an auction, you will
be required to affirm your bid with a signature and deposit. All
deposits must be in earnest money form, i.e. cash, certified or
bank check. Deposit requirements and amounts are clearly list-
ed in the "TERMS" section of all J.W. Hill &-Associates adver-
tising.'
Prior to the start of bidding, J.W. Hill & Associates auction-
eers conduct a question and answer period. This is an opportu-
nity for registered bidders to ask any last minute questions be-
fore the auction begins.
Until you have won or reached your limit. There can be only
one.

Simple Sides for






Enter:ainin


FAMILY FEATURES


Seasonal celebrations provide a perfect opportunity to
entertain at home. Just remember, the key to a
successful and stress-free soiree is to keep it
simple and think "side dishes."
Side dishes are a great way to show your versa-
tility and shine in the kitchen. Prepare a meal with
a simple roast or store-bought entree, such as a
glazed ham or roasted turkey, and you've got
a terrific spread that will keep your guests
coming back for more.
Broccoli 'n' Cheese Casserole is an easy
and delicious spin on a plain broccoli side
dish. Plus, it's a great way to get your
younger guests to eat their veggies.
For a dish that is simple, but full of flavor,
try Broth Simmered Rice. Prepared with
Swanson Broth instead of water, it is easy to
customize to complement any main course.
For, a tasty twist, make it "Florentine" by
adding Italian seasoning, spinach and
Parmesan cheese.
Three-Cheese Pasta Bake is a creamy
pasta dish that is sure to satisfy. Made with
Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, this
crowd-pleaser has only six ingredients and
can be ready in just 25 minutes.
For more festive and flavorful recipes,
please visit www.campbellskitchen.com and
www.swansonbroth.com.


Casual

Entertaining.

Tips
* To make your next weeknight
dinner extra special, set the table
with matching linens and provide
a place card at each diner's seat.
* Music is an easy way to set the
tone for a gathering. Once you
choose a theme, select a few
favorite compact discs to play
throughout the evening.

pared ahead of time. That way,
when guests arrive you can spend
more time socializing and less
time in the kitchen.
