Learning ag




in classrooms


Ira Mikell

Instilling a love towards, an
appreciation for, and a zeal for
learning about agriculture in
school children is what Ag Lit-
eracy Day is all about. Since
2004, Agriculture in the Class-
room, Inc., a non-profit educa-
tional organization, has been or-
ganizing and promoting this an-
nual event in March.


According to Lisa Gaskalla,
Executive Director of the orga-
nization, local businesses and
individuals who are associated
with agriculture read a book
about agriculture to elementary
students. "Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day is a day in March
when hundreds of farmers,
ranchers, growers, FFA stu-
dents, agriculture industry rep-
resentatives, and educators go
into thousands of elementary
school classrooms around the
state and read a designated chil-


dren's book about agri-
culture," Gaskalla said.
She further stated that it
helps students to learn ...
about a variety of topics '
such as how food goes
from the farm to the .
table, what life is like
on a farm, and about
plant life in a fun, Volunteer
easy way. readers read OhSaY

JAQold paithA

I liked the old paths, when A
Moms were at home.
Dads were at work.
Brothers went into the
Army.

BEFORE having children! .


Crime did not pay;
Hard work did;
And people knew the dif-
ference.

Moms could cook;
Dads would work;
Children would behave.
Husbands were loving;
Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry;
And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked de-
cent.'

People loved the truth,
And hated a lie;
They came to church to get
IN,
Not to get OUT!

Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sin-
cere.

Cursing was wicked;
Drinking was evil;
And divorce was unthink-
able.

The flag was honored;
America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!

We read the Bible in public;
Prayed in school; And
preached from house to
house
To be called an American
was worth dying for;
To be called a Christian was


worth living for;
To be called a traitor was.a
shame!

Sex was a personal word.
Homosexual was an un-
heard of word,
And abortion was an illegal
word.,

Preachers preached be-
cause they had a message;
And Christians rejoiced be-
cause they had the VICTO-
RY!
Preachers preached from
the Bible;
Singers sang from the heart;
And sinners turned to the
Lord to be SAVED!

A new birth meant a new
life;
Salvation meant a changed
life;
Following Christ led to
eternal life.

Being a preacher meant you
proclaimed the word of
God;
Being a deacon meant you
would serve the Lord;
Being a Christian meant
you would live for Jesus;


And being a sinner meant And the Holy Spirit was re-
someone was praying for spected.
you!


Laws were based on the
Bible;
Homes read the Bible;'
And churches taught the
Bible.

Preachers were more inter-
ested in new converts,
Than new clothes and new
cars.
God was worshiped;
Christ was exalted;


Church was where you
found Christians
On the Lord's day, rather
than in the garden,
On the creek bank, on the
golf course,
Or being entertained some-
where else.
I still like the old paths the
best!
"The Old Paths" was
written by a retired minis-
ter who lives in Tennessee

Long ternmhealth/ nursing home

care changes over the years


Linda Smith
Rotarian Rich Wisdahl,
who is also the Nursing
Home Administrator for
Lafayette Health Care in
Mayo, shared some of the
changes that have taken
place over the past thirty
or so years since he has
been in this field of work.
He discussed various
ways that things were
done back then and how
they are handled now and
it all boils down to being
more knowledgeable. Ac-
cording to Wisdahl, some
of the ways things were
done back then, has now
been proven to be incor-
rect. But again he stressed,
this is all due to the fact,
that now they are more
knowledgeable and edu-
cated in this field of long-
term health care,
At the time, things were
done according to the best


knowledge available, but
according to Wishdahl,
down through the years,
they are now better
equipped to more properly
handle residents' needs
and still allow then a
greater quality of life.
Following his presenta-
tion, Wisdahl showed
some of the different de-
vices used at the health
care center to help main-
tain the safety of the resi-
dents without totally re-
stricting or confining them.
These various devices
sound an alarm of sorts to
let the staff know what is
going on with the resident
at any given time.
According to Wisdahl,
Lafayette Health Care Cen-
ter strives to give the resi-
dents a greater quality and
variety of life, as well as a
safe environment for them
to reside.

Lose more weight with one-on-one help


Doesn't it seem like
celebrities have the edge
on maintaining fit, Holly-
wood-worthy bodies?
They look stunning for
movie premieres and
showcase chiseled
physiques for action block-
busters. But just like every
other human on the planet,
celebrities, athletes and
high-profile people have
their strengths and weak-
nesses when it comes to
fitness and nutrition. They
just may have some extra
help in their comer: a per-
sonal nutritionist.
How much extra weight
do you think you could
lose if you had the motiva-
tion and expertise of a nu-
tritionist? What if you had
someone to point you in
the right direction and of-
fer support when you felt
like straying off course?
Studies show that having
support during weight loss
and dieting can help you
relize-greater results.:Re '
searchers from Tufts Uni-
versity have discovered
that regular support from
other people is important
to sticking to a weight-loss
plan.
Luckily for those out
there who are ready to
make strides in weight
loss, personalized nutri-
tional assistance and sup-
port is now available be-
yond elite circles. Dr. Bill
Wheeler is a nationally rec-
ognized doctor and nutri-
tionist. He has been the
personal nutritionist to
President Jimmy Carter, as
well as high-profile sports
teams, the Denver
Nuggets, the Green Bay
Packers and several U.S.
Olympic teams. Dr. Wheel-
er holds B.S. and M.S. de-
grees in nutrition from the
University of Georgia and
a Ph.D. with honors in nu-
trition from Purdue Uni-
versity and is a Registered
Dietitian with the Ameri-
can Dietetic Association.


But like many regular
folks, Dr. Wheeler once
battled his own weight
problems for many years.
In fact, others often won-
dered how a guy so over-
weight might be qualified
to offer nutritional guid-
ance.
Dr. Wheeler decided to
finally follow his own ad-
vice and lost a total of 130
pounds. To show others
that they, too, can lose
weight and to provide
the personalized help some
need he offers the Web
site WheelerDiet.com. Reg-
istered members can log
on any time for tips, advice
and support in their
weight-loss quest. Simply
by typing in their height,
weight and age, members
can begin with a diet pro-
file to get an idea of where
they are and where they
should be going.
From there, the site of-
fers dozens of recipes de-
'" signed to fill you up but
keep blood sugar levels
low. Once you've chosen
your very own meal plan,
simply print the menu out
and you're set for the
week. Members can also
ask questions of the con-
tributing fitness experts in
relation to your specific
hurdles and successes.
"We are going to be
feeding you healthy, nutri-
ent dense foods that will
fill you up, but at the same
time don't raise blood sug-
ar levels," says Dr. Wheel-
er. "When your blood sug-
ar stays in a nice normal
range, your body will use
stored body fat as a source
of fuel."
Part of Dr. Wheeler's
dramatic weight loss can
be attributed to the meal
replacement shakes he de-
veloped, which can be part
of a healthy diet plan.
Gold Standard Protein
Shakes are delicious-tast-
ing meals that aid in
weight loss and good nu-


trition. These filling meal
replacements are rein-
forced with 32 amino acids
and protein profiles that
supply the body with
boundless energy, yet help
curb the cravings that can
foil weight-loss efforts.
Dr. Wheeler also offers
these other tips to help you
maintain your goals:
Recognize you may
need help. With a quick
and honest entry of height,
age and weight at Wheel-
erDiet.com, those con-
cerned with their weight
can get a quick snapshot of
just how healthy or un-
healthy they might be.
Enjoy low-carbohy-
drate, high-protein meals.
Dieting alone is not
enough; regular exercise -
at least 20 to 30 minutes
per day is an integral
part of a healthy fitness
regimen.
Get the support you


need, either with an exer-
cise buddy, family member
or the expert assistance
24/7 from www.Wheel-
erDiet.com.
Celebrate successes but
don't get defeated if you
slip up. Dieting should be
one aspect of a healthy
lifestyle and is a long-term
effort to eating right. You
can always get back on
track.
You are not alone in
your weight-loss goals.
There are many people
who are overweight and
are looking to make a
change -Dr. Wheeler is
just one success story.

Elementary Education with
an ESOL (English as a Sec-
ond Language) endorse-
ment in 2006. While attend-
ing Flagler College, he was
awarded the Deans List.
This award recognizes col-
lege students for their aca-
demic achievement regard-
less of the degree and ma-
jor they choose to pursue.
Although this is his first
year of teaching at LES,
Clark says that he is very
excited about his future
here and thoroughly enjoys
helping his students
achieve academic success.
"I love my job and want to
thank the community for .
the support that I have re-
ceived from our school ad-
ministration and parents of
m.y students," Clark said.
A strong believer in his
students, Clark always
makes sure that he gives
them all the tools they


need as well as every op-
portunity to work hard to
succeed. "I believe that
every child deserves the
same educational opportu-
nity in life and education is
something that can only
further improve your op-
portunities in life," Clark
said.
He also hopes that every
student who enters his
classroom will leave with
the knowledge and skills
that he has given them to
use, not only for the next
level in their education, but
also as they live and inter-
act with society.
Prior to being hired by
the Lafayette County
School Board, Clark
worked various other jobs.
He was employed at Pub-
lix Supermarkets in
Gainesville; the Depart-
ment of Financial Services;
and, as a Claims Analyst
for the Bureau of Un-
claimed Property.

You Seed?" to elementary
students at Lafayette Ele-
mentary and Lighthouse

book, written by Bonnie
Worth, takes the reader on
a very illustrative imagi-
nary journey of how a
seed becomes a plant and
describes in detail how
plants make their own
food.
After each individual
finished reading the book,
he or she donated it along
with additional materials
to the teacher for future
use. A total of 43 copies of
"Oh Say Can You Seed?"
was delivered to LES and
LCA, according to Jana
Hart, a member of Mayo
Rotary.

Hornets at Dixie as Lafayette downs Hamilton


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
The Lafayette Lady Hornets softball team bats
were silent against host Dixie County in high school
softball play. The Lady-Hornets scratched out but
four hits in dropping a 4-1 decision on the road at
Cross City.
In fact, Lafayette did not put a runner on the base
paths until the fourth inning when they scored their
lone run. McCellen retired the first nine batters she
faced until junior Natalie Land singled to lead off the
Lady Hornets fourth inning. A stolen base by Land
set up Lindsey Hamlin's RBI single that made it a 2-1
game at the time. Katie Jo Walker had a single in the
same inning but was left stranded.
Seven of the first nine McCellen retired were of the
ground ball variety. She had two strike outs in the
first three innings as the Lady Hornets were making
contact with her pitches but was playing "at'em ball"
as the infield errorlessly gathered in the ground
balls.
Hamlin was impressive in her first two innings of
work. She got the side in order in both the first and
second innings before Dixie County struck for two
runs in the bottom of the third in assuming a 2-0
lead. VanArman and Chenning had doubles in the
inning for the Lady Bears accounting for the two
runs.

It was not a thing of beauty for right-hander
Chad Hempstead when faced visiting Hamil-
ton County in baseball action last week, but he
showed a lot of poise in hurling the Lafayette
Hornets to a 5-3 win in district play. Hemp-
stead worked the first five innings for the Hor-
nets before giving way to Aaron Gresham the
final two innings.
Hempstead worked out of trouble in each of
the five innings he worked allowing single runs
in the Hamilton half of the second fourth in-
ning. Hempstead fanned four batters while
scattering two hits in picking up the win. Gre-
sham allowed one run on two hits over the fi-
nal two frames.
Hamilton stranded two runners in the first
inning against Hamilton but did manage to
push across a run in the second inning for a 1-0
lead. Zomora opened Hamilton's second with a
base hit scoring on a third baseman's error. The
Hornets tied the game at 1-1 by plating a sec-
ond inning run. Colby Keen singled to start the
Hornet second while Jon Anderson walked.
Anderson came around to score the tying run
on an error at second base off the bat of Cody
Singletary.

Spring training!

A dream come true
I am a big baseball fan. I enjoy all kinds of baseball
whether it be high school, college or the Major Leagues.
For a number of years my dream was to take in a spring
training game somewhere here in the state of Florida. That
dream became a reality this past weekend as I made my
way to the Sarasota area to take in a Cincinnati Reds game
against the Toronto Blue Jays..
I had ordered my tickets well in advance so I could get
choice seating. My son Greg and brother Bob was coming
down to make the trip with me and we were going to
have a great time. With tickets in hand and motel reserva-
tions secured, we headed down 1-75 toward Sarasota un-
der some beautiful skies. Arriving in Sarasota and at the

walk and an error loaded
the bags before Hempstead
got Fultz on strikes to end
the threat. In the bottom of

dium Friday afternoon (the
day we had tickets for) we
drove to where the stadi-
um was located around 5
p.m. We noticed there were
a lot of cars in the parking
area and folks were enter-
ing the stadium at both en-
trances. "What is going on
here," my brother asked?
Well they are playing
tonight. Great! After we
deposited the women back
at the motel, we headed
back to Ed Smith Stadium
to take in the Reds and Pi-
rates in a 7:05 start. We got
our tickets and made our
way to the seats. We had a
great view of the game.
"Boy this is great." I said.
Both agreed with me.
It was a close game as
the Pirates scored two runs
in the first inning. But that
would be all they would
get and the Reds came
back and won the game in
the bottom of the ninth.
Wow! Who would have
wanted more. And we had
tickets for the afternoon
game the next day.
Friday morning greeted
us with thunderstorms.
The rain kept coming
down. "Hey, let's go to the
ball park, it is going to stop
and they will play the
game," advised my brother
Bob. We made our way to
the park and believe me, it
did not stop raining and
the game was called. Dis-
appointment! Disappoint-
ment!
We were advised that we
could send in our tickets
for the rained 'out spring
training game and get a re-
fund. Regardless of the
rain, still it was a very en-
joyable time in Sarasota.
And we did get to fulfill
that dream by being
blessed with a Thursday
night game we did not
know anything about.
Spring training is a lot
-diftereyit-than the eguJar
season games because you
get to see so many different
players perform. I must ad-


mit, from what I saw, some
did not belong on the field
at all. Would I make the
trip back down again? I
sure would! It truly was a
dream come true.
In 1993, while Sports Ed-
itor with a newspaper I
worked for in Kentucky,
my publisher called me in
and said, "How would you
like to go to Plant City and
cover the Reds spring
training for about three
days," he said. Would I!
Three days! Oh, my!
With great anticipation I
contacted the Reds offices
in Cincinnati and made
arrangements for my press
credentials. My wife and
brother Bob were going to
make that trip with me as
well. I was excited. Could
this really be happening to
me? We were scheduled to
leave for Florida that Mon-
day morning.
The Saturday night be-
fore we started to get a
spring snow shower. Not
to worry, we are going to :
Florida and it never snows
in Florida. The snow lasted
through the night on Satur-
day night and continued
without stopping Sunday.
Monday morning we were
looking at 25 inches of
snow and no way out of'
the drive way. In fact, 1-75
was closed to all traffic. I
was so disappointed. My
publisher gave me two
days off to recuperate.
NCAA Tournament...
The first two rounds of
the NCAA basketball tour-
nament are in the books
and round three will begin
this weekend. The Sweet
16 will afford us with some
very good basketball
games. I like the Florida
Gators. Billy Donovan is a
great coach and I look for
Florida to repeat as Nation-
al Champions. I certainly
hope he does not jump to
the NBA as.a coach. The
college game needs him
-and his style of basketball.
Well, until the next time,.
good sports everyone and
be good sports.

look from start to finish.
Safely store your dress.
"The average prom dress
runs about $250,. and is the
bulk of a teen prom bud-
get," says Dobson. "Don't
haphazardly hang a gor-
geous dress in a packed
closet; design work such as
beads or delicate fabric can
become destroyed." Your
special dress deserves spe-
cial treatment, so look for
fabric hangers that slope so
the dress doesn't lose
shape. Joy Mangano's Hug-
gable Hangers


(www.hsn.com) are a great
option. They are super thin
and covered with velvet, so
nothing falls off. And the
rounded edges ensure your
dress will retain its shape.
Focus on accessories.
"Accessorizing can be
tricky because nobody
wants to overdo it, yet
everybody wants to be no-
ticed," says Dobson. "Pour
through magazines to get
an idea of what type of style
is appropriate for your
dress. I love the Cosmo-
GIRL! line found at


2007 Chevy Cobaft LS

4 door, LS package, automatic
transmission #2785


Claire's." CosmoGIRL! jew-
elry includes everything
from sophisticated drop
earrings to tiaras. "The tiara
is a classic prom accessory,"
says Dobson.
Don't forget about shoes!
"Finding the perfect shoes
to match your knockout
dress can be a major
headache, so don't leave it \
to the last minute," says
Dobson. Try a metallic
shade that can be worn long
after prom. Seventeen Spe-
cial Occasion Footwear
(JCPenney and


www.jcp.com) offers a se-
lection of fashionable, yet
affordable, shoes from
dainty rhinestone sandals
to glamorous slides.
After all the fun shopping
is done, getting ready on
the big night can be very
stressful. Doing it in the
proper order (yes, there is
one) will alleviate some of
that stress.
The dress should always
go on last. "Never do your
makeup in your dress, be-
cause once nerves kick-in,
which they will, you could


risk an unwanted spill,"
says Dobson.
Once the robe is on, you
are ready for makeup.
And the final touch?
When you step into that
perfect dress and the whole
prom look is complete,
don't forget a knock-out
fragrance!
Now that you are prom-
ready, remember, even if
there were little mishaps
along the way, you will al-
ways be beautiful. Prom is a
special occasion, so have
fun and enjoy the night!

Shands puts decontamination team to the test


Staff
Months of training and
an investment in thousands
of dollars in equipment
have paid off for two north
Florida hospitals. Shands
Live Oak and Shands Lake
Shore in Lake City tested
their ability to respond to a
hazardous-material, mass-
casualty event by hosting a
disaster drill this week.
"This hospital did an ab-
solutely fabulous job," said
Jack Pittman, director of
Public Health Preparedness
for the North Florida Re-
gion and Domestic Security
Task Force member, during
a post-drill debriefing at
Shands Live Oak. "You are
very well trained and knew
what to do."
March 13, doctors, nurses
and other hospital staff re-
sponded to a simulated ac-
cident that involved a tour
bus traveling east on Inter-
state 10 with approximately
45 passengers on board. It
was reported that an explo-
sion occurred inside the
bus from an improvised ex-
plosive device. During the
drill, the Shands Lake
Shore team decontaminat-
ed, triaged and treated 26


patients while the Shands
Live Oak team worked with
19 patients.
"These types of events
show that it takes the
whole community to work
together for the quality of
patient care," said Pittman.
"Shands Live Oak, Suwan-
nee County EMS, Live Oak
Fire Department and the
Suwannee County Sheriff's
Office did an excellent job
supporting each other dur-
ing a taxing disaster
event."
Federal and state grants
enabled both hospitals to
purchase decontamination
equipment, including a de-
contamination shower,
trailer, truck, fire hoses and
a variety of personal-pro-
tective gear. All hospitals
are required to perform two
emergency preparedness
drills annually.
"Our staff was very pre-
pared. They knew our dis-
aster plan and never pan-
icked," said Alicia Layne,
Shands Live Oak director
of nursing. "We are com-
mitted to providing patient
care in the safest way by
ensuring our staff is ade-
quately trained."

New help for diabetics struggling with weight loss


With no known cause and no current cure, diabetes is a mystery to many. But many
experts have discovered that obesity and lack of exercise may be connected with diabetes,
and reducing weight and dieting can be an important part of managing the disease and
living a much longer, nonnrmal life.
Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce insulin (Type 1) or is unable to
effectively use insulin (Type 2). Insulin is a hormone that converts sugars and starches into
energy that cells in the body use for energy and life. Roughly 7 percent of the U.S.
population has diabetes. Early diagnosis and treatment of diabetes can help prevent
complications associated with the disease, such as vision loss and nerve damage.
It is important to note that even though diabetes is serious and a diagnosis can seem
scary, most people who begin treatment early can live long, happy lives. Because type 2 is
the most common, treatment for this branch of the disease is discussed.
Common Conditions and Treatment
Type 2 diabetes brings with it a bevy of symptoms and subsequent remedies. It is
important to be consistent in monitoring blood glucose (sugar) levels and watch for signs
and symptoms of complications.
Hypoglycemia Also known as low blood sugar, this can occur even during the
strictest diabetes management. Symptoms include dizziness, shaking, hunger, headache,
mood changes, and difficulty paying attention. If blood glucose cannot be tested at the
time of symptoms, it's important to treat anyway. If not effectively addressed,
hypoglycemia can cause fainting. Treatment: Consuming glucose tablets or fruit juice can
help elevate sugar levels.
Hyperglycemia Also known as high blood sugar where the insulin production or
usage cannot control the amount of blood glucose. It is important to treat this as soon as a
problem is detected. Otherwise, a condition called ketoacidosis (diabetic coma) could
occur. When the body doesn't have enough insulin to use glucose for fuel it breaks down
fats to use for energy. During breakdown, waste products called ketones are produced,
which the body cannot get rid of in many cases and they build up in the blood Signs of
hyperglycemia include fruity breath, nausea and vomiting, dry mouth, and shortness of
breath. Treatment: One of the ways to keep blood sugar in check is through exercise.
However, if your blood glucose is above 240 mg/dl, check your urine for ketones. If you
have ketones, do NOT exercise. Dief and weight management are also effective
treatments. A healthy meal plan for people with diabetes is the same as that for everyone
low in fat (especially saturated and trans fat), moderate in salt and sugar, with meals
based on whole grain foods, vegetables and fruit.
How Supplements Can Help
Losing weight, even a few pounds, can help manage diabetes. And for those who do not
have diabetes, but may be at risk, eating healthily and maintaining a healthy body weight
are keys to avoiding diabetes down the line. But as most people know, losing weight is not
so easily achieved, especially when on a diabetic diet.
Carbonetics Block and Burn for Diabetics are products designed to be used together to
help people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes achieve their weight-loss goals. Carbonetics
Block is formulated with ingredients such as Banaba leaf, Gymnema, and Fenugreek,
which are being studied as a natural assist in stabilizing blood sugar in healthy adults.
When blood sugar is stable, cravings are reduced. It also includes White Kidney Bean
extracts or phaseolus vulgaris- the same base material that patented "Phase 2" products are
derived from. This combination of Banaba and Phaseolus extracts help support normal
blood sugar levels in healthy adults, a one-two punch for diabetics not found in other
Phase 2 products on the market.
Carbonetics Burn contains a patented new breakthrough ingredient called Carbogen.
This is a proprietary enzyme formulation composed of amylase, cellulase and
hemicellulase. Carbogen helps the body efficiently process carbohydrates consumed,
converting it to glycogen, which is then used by the cells and muscles as energy. There is

Maintaining a healthy weight is one step in managing diabetes.


an added bonus for people who include regular exercise as a part of their weight loss plan.
Carbogen helps supply the body with ready sources of energy helping to fuel workouts. A
study at the University of Dayton showed that cyclists consuming Carbogen and then
exercising had a lower rate of perceived exertion. They didn't feel as tired during the
workout and thus were able to continue the workout longer.
Carbonetics Block and Burn for Diabetics can be an important component of diabetes
treatment. Banaba leaf's blood-sugar regulating properties have been demonstrated in
various studies. In isolated cells, the active ingredient in banaba extract, corosolic acid, is
known to stimulate glucose uptake. In humans with type 2 diabetes, banaba extract, at a
dose of 16 to 48 mg per day for 4 to 8 weeks has been shown to be effective in reducing
blood sugar levels up to 30 percent and maintaining better control of blood sugar
fluctuations. A "side-effect" of Banaba is weight loss (2 to 4 pounds a month) without
significant dietary changes. Another key ingredient in the supplements, Phaseolus Extract,
helps block the absorption of some carbs and fats in the diet. Eanng smallerr portions
combined with this supplement can provide greater weight-loss benefits.
These supplements are easy to include in a healthy lifestyle. Many products require up
to six pills before each meal, but with Carbonetics, only two pills per day before your
main meal are necessary. Remember, Carbonetics are only one component of a healthy
lifestyle and regimen for losing weight and promoting management of diabetes.

But it was never just a
simple matter of capturing
moments. It was also a
way for him to share his
faith.
On each picture devel-


"I wish the Lord
would take me, but I
guess he has things
left for me to do."


Surrounding him on the
walls of his living room
are hundreds of portraits:
of himself as a young ath-
lete; of Newburyport High
School students from the
recent past and those
who've already celebrated
20-year graduation re-
unions; and of cross coun-
try and basketball teams.
And of Jesus.
For almost three
decades, the 1968 gradu-
ate of Newburyport High
has helped to document
the cross country and bas-
ketball teams at his alma
mater. He estimates he's
given away more than
100,000 prints and thou-
sands of framed pho-
tographs to athletes,
coaches, parents and
grandparents. He does this
all at his own expense.
But Scott said his time
as unofficial team photog-
rapher is over, that he's al-
ready captured his last
high school event on film.,
He said it's just getting
too difficult too much
pain, too much effort.
Just too much.
"It's so difficult to do
now," he said. "And I
don't even know if I'll be
around next fall."
Charlie Scott turned 57
years old Thusday and
doctors say it will be his
last birthday.

Dear Charlie:
I cannot tell you the
pleasure I experienced
when I received the beau-
tiful framed picture from
last year's sports night
awards.

Scott says giving the
pictures as gifts is an ex-
tension of God's love.
"It's just something I
love doing," Scott said.
"It's something God gave
me to do."
Using an old Pentax
film camera, he traveled
to cross country meets and
basketball games to take
pictures of Newburyport's
young athletes. He said
it's always been a passion
of his, even before he was
diagnosed with progres-
sive spastic paraparesis
disease, which is attacking
the nerves in his spinal
column and brain.
The pictures have
helped document decades'
worth of the city's youth
as they made their way
through high school ath-
letics. Scott continued to
chart the athletic lives of
some students into their

small mes-
sage, a
biblical verse and some-
times a hand-drawn pic-
ture of a heart the kind
one would see on a Valen-
tine's note. The messages
used to go on the backs of
photographs, but about 10
years ago, Scott started
writing the messages on
the front to get more ex-
posure, he said.
He said it is a simple
gesture, but a powerful
message with depth that
might not be fully under-
stood by many youngsters.
"It's God's love, that's
the motivation," he said of
taking the photographs.
For the past 24 years,
Neil Reardon has coached
the high school girls var-
sity basketball team, all
the while with Scott on
the sidelines for most
games.
In that time he said he's
received many pictures,
including when his daugh-
ter, Meghan, was on the
team.
Those pictures now
hang on the walls of his
house and serve as framed
reminders of two decades
of memories.
"I have many pictures of
her and myself and her
j ust playing the game,"
said Reardon, who's
known Scott since he was
11 years old. "They are
framed in my cellar. He
has provided me with a lot
of memories over the
years."

You have become a leg-

end at N.H.S. both for
students and coaches be-
cause of your charismatic
way of creating pho-
tographs capturing unfor-
gettable moments.

Cross country began at
Newburyport High when
Scott was in eighth-grade.
"I couldn't wait to get
on the team," he said. To
this day, the sport remains
his favorite.
He ran for the team for
four years before gradua-
tion.
After high school, he
started running road races.
For 20 years, until 1985,
he ran in more than 800
races, ranging from 1-mile
road races to grueling
marathons. He also partic-
ipated as a member of the
North Medford Club and
organized his own local
road race.
Still, he said he wasn't
great although the

phies in his apartment

"I was what you call a

And it wasn't just the

EAGER


FOR


EAGLES


Word is out: Birdwatchers flocking to river


By Steve Myrick
CNHI News Service


AMESBURY, Mass. -
Michael Lariviere rattles off a
long list of places he has trav-
eled hoping to see bald eagles.
"Yellowstone, all over the
Washington State area, Mount
Rainier, all through Montana,
Rocky Mountain National
Park, Yosemite. My wife and I
travel all over the country.
We've got pictures of elk,
moose, grizzly bears, all kinds
of hawks."
But they never managed to
see a bald eagle.
At Yosemite National Park,
rangers directed them to a
sure-fire spot where, the
rangers insisted, an eagle al-
ways sat in a tree. They
watched for two days. No ea-
gle.
Then Lariviere read a news-
paper account of the Merri-
mack River Eagle Festival, so
he came to Amesbury and
Newburyport, and found what
he was looking for.
Yesterday, standing on Ames-
bury's tiny Deer Island, just a
short drive from his Haverhill
home, he stood in awe of the
spectacle in the gray skies
above. Eagles were every-
where, gliding, playing and oc-
casionally, snatching an unsus-
pecting fish from the river.
Lariviere recalls his first visit
to this spot, during the festival
last month.
"In five minutes, we saw 15
bald eagles," said Lariviere.
"You step out of your car and
they're flying overhead."
Lariviere represents a fast-
grow ing interest in eagles, and
growing numbers of people
traveling to the region to see
them. Fueled by the publicity
surrounding the Eagle Festival,
Internet sites, e-mail lists, good
old-fashioned word of mouth,
and most importantly, an influx
of eagles, people are flocking
to viewing spots along the
Merrimack River hoping to
catch a close-up glimpse of the

nation's signature bird.
In recent weeks the Hynes
and Chain bridges, and particu-
larly the parking lot on Deer
Island between them, have
teemed with eager eagle-
watchers, virtually all of whom
are rewarded for their visit.
Several knowledgeable ob-
servers estimate between 20
and 28 eagles have migrated
southward this year to find
open. water where they can take
fish. Last year, they estimated
there were about 12 eagles
here.
Shock and awe
Many visitors come expect-
ing to peer through binoculars
at a tiny speck in a distant tree.
They are shocked to see as
many as a dozen eagles in the
air at the same time.
When Sandy McMillan got


out of her car after driving
down from Farmington, N.H.,
she said she and fellow pho-
tographer Russ Bunting from
Kittery, Maine, started "chimp-
ing."
"We just kept going 'ooh,
ooh, ooh, ooh,'" like a chim-
panzee, said McMillan. "I've
never been this close to a bald
eagle."
Michele Westin heard about
the Deer Island viewing spot,
from a patient in the
Portsmouth, N.H., doctor's of-
fice where she works. She had
just spread out her picnic blan-
ket on a dry patch of ground
when she heard an ear splitting
"caw" and saw a small mob of
bird watchers and photogra-
phers moving her way. A juve-
nile eagle with a fish in its
talons had settled on the


branch of a tall pine tree, about
50 feet directly above her blan-
ket.
As she told the story, a
young eagle glided gracefully
from his perch on nearby Eagle
Island, and landed on a large
sheet of ice drifting down the
Merrimack. This caused a mi-
nor stampede of birders and
photographers dragging huge
lenses back through the muck
to the other side of the island.,
Soon, another bird glided down
to join the first on the ice.
"This is a fantastic show,"
said Joe Malachowski, who
drove from Chelsea. "I've seen
at least nine (today). I was re-
ally shocked to see there are
that many hanging around this
year."
Further down the river, at the
Joppa Flats Education Center


and Wildlife Refuge, Audubon
Society officials are seeing a
dramatic increase in visitors.
"Our weekend attendance has
been phenomenal," said Melis-
sa Vokey, office manager at the
Audubon facility, and chair-
woman of the Eagle Festival.
"We've had 400 people a
weekend, and we're usually
around 150. It's people looking
for eagles."
Charismatic megafauna
The lure of the symbolic
birds reaches far beyond nature
watchers and photographers.
Wildlife biologists put eagles
in a group they call "charis-
matic megafauna," along with
animals like tigers, lions and
wolves. They are creatures that
attract unusual attention, be-
cause people attribute human
characteristics to them, like
courage, strength and nobility.
Which they don't have, said
Vokey. "They're carrion eaters,
but because of the way they
look, you just think, that's
what I want to be like."
The expanding interest in ea-
gles leads to a greater aware-
ness of other parts of the natur-
al world, according to Vokey.
"Eagles are sort of like the
window," she said. "If you be-
come interested in eagles, then
you might start thinking about
why the eagles are here, you
start thinking about the river,
what fish are in the river. It's a
great way to get people intro-
duced to what's happening in
nature."
Unlike sudden interest in
other species, most notably
whales and polar bears, the
crowds do not seem to affect
the eagles, oi their habitat. The
birds appear utterly oblivious
to the people standing around
watching them.
"Human's don't have any ef-
fect on whether the river is
frozen or unfrozen," said
Vokey.
However, the growing
crowds, especially on week-

tention of local police.
"I know traffic has
been a mess," said Sgt.
Bill Sholtz of the Ames-
bury Police Department.
Some homeowners in the
area have posted signs
letting visitors know their


lawns and driveways are
off limits, but police say
they have not received an
abnormal number of
complaints.
Back at Deer Island,
birdwatcher Job Dekker
invites a visitor over.
"I have a mature (ea-
gle) right in the scope if
you take a look," says


Dekker, who came from
the central Massachusetts
town of Princeton. "See
the white head, white
tail? lHe was chasing the
other bird. I think he
likes that spot."
For Dekker, seeing ea-
gles is similar to the ex-
citement sports fans
might get watching a


great game.
"They are spectacular
birds," said Dekker. "To-
day, I really wanted to
see these eagles. It has
been a while since I've
seen them this close. You
can really study them and
see them hunting and in-:
teract with each other.
It's kind of a thrill. It's


very nice to see these
birds have made this dra-
matic comeback. This
particular spot is one of
the few places I've been
where you can see them

rebounder and a good
jump shooter but was
cursed with horrible ball
handling skills, admitting
this downfall with a slight
shrug and smile. After his
college days he continued
playing in the Newbury-
port city league, where he
was involved for about
two decades as a player,
organizer and scorekeeper.
His athletic prowess and
his dedication to high
school sports are the dri-
ving force behind a move-
ment in Newburyport to
create a scholarship in
Scott's name.
On June 23, Reardon
and others from Newbury-
port High are organizing
the Charlie Scott Scholar-
ship Run/Walk at Fuller
Field, which will 'help to
raise money for a scholar-
ship in Scott's name.
Reardon said all proceeds
will go to the scholarship,
which will be given to a
student-athlete who com-
petes in either basketball
or cross country.
Reardon said they will
also solicit donations from
community members,
specifically those with
personal knowledge of
Scott. ,
"He's well known for


giving and he's certainly
provided a lot of families
with a lot of nice pictures
and keepsakes," Reardon
said. "Hopefully they will
like to give back to Char-
lie. Hopefully we can car-
ry on his legacy through
the scholarship."

Mostly, however, your
"heart-felt" note on the
backside of the frame
made such an impact on
me and will remain so
the rest of my life. For
that, I would like to thank
you, thank you and

Coach Steve Politis

It was 1983 when Scott
first started to notice
problems.
He said he started to fall
often when he ran road
races, because his legs
kept stiffening. Scott said
he had noticed the feeling
before, when his legs
started to feel tight, espe-
cially during races. And in
hindsight it made sense:
he'd always been a "stiff'
runner, people told him.
Scott said he stopped
racing in 1985, unable to
move his legs properly.


chair.
"It started as a minor in-
convenience," he said.
"But it just kept getting
worse and worse."
A self-described "stub-
born" man, Scott said he
was hesitant to go to doc-
tors. Finally, he went to
see a chiropractor, who af-
ter an examination sug-
gested a neurologist. Doc-
tors thought at first it was
multiple sclerosis, but
soon found out the true
disease.
Progressive spastic
paraparesis disease attacks
the nerve tracks in the
spinal cord and those
leading into the brain,
causing difficulty in
movement because of in-
creased tone or tightness
in the muscles, accord-
ing to Dr. Kevin Ryan, a
neurologist at Beverly
Hospital. About three in
every 100,000 people in
the United States have the
disease.
Now the disease is a
constant source of pain
for Scott. He said it is ru-
" ining his immune system,
causing him to fall ill with
infections constantly.
Scott says he is in and
out of hospitals.


killing him and he said
doctors say he has just six
months to live.
"Whether I have six
months to live is up to the
Lord," he said. "It could
be longer, and it could be
shorter, you never know."
Scott said it was his de-
cision 20 years ago to be-
come a Christian that is
helping him through the
constant pain and it is
evident. Even in his cur-
rent state, he says he is re-
minded daily that some
people living in Africa
and other places have no
beds, no food, no hope.
"I'm blessed when you,
think about it," he says.
He says it's his faith
that helps him to stay
alive and fight depression.
"I would probably com-
mit suicide if I didn't
have the faith," he said.
Sitting in his wheelchair
in the middle of his living
room on a recent after-
noon, Scott is surrounded
by some of the few things
that still comfort him.
There are dozens of
notes fastened to the
walls. "Thank you Char-
lie," is what most of them
read. There are senior pic-
tures of hundreds of ath-


standing with coaches or
players at awards nights.
In one corner is a chair,
filled to capacity with
stuffed animals. On the
chair's arm is a Bible, its
pages ripped, its words
highlighted, its message
stored in Scott's brain.,
Across the room is an-
other ledge filled with soft
creatures.
"People know I like
ihein," Scott says of
smtu'led animals.
Along another wall is a
set of three shelves, each
heavy with trophies from
years of running, shooting
and playing in sports.
There is a "No. 1 fan" tro-
phy he received from a
Clipper basketball team.
Above those trophies

A few feet away, hang-

Mixed in, though, are
other reminders: bottles of
medicine containing pain
medication like morphine;
an electric bed that allows
tilt control at the touch of
a button; the dull hum of
a humidifier that helps
him breathe; the faint
medicine smell of a hospi-

Despite the love that's
been poured out through
notes and letters, thank-

ceremonies, scholarships
and praise, Scott says the
disease that has robbed
him of his mobility and
much of his short-term
memory is often too diffi-
cult to handle.
He says he wants his
life to end, which is the
only way he sees an end
to the suffering. But he
has six.months, a fact that
he says is "hard, but also
not so hard."
"I suffer'so much, I
wish the Lord would take
me tonight," he said.
He adds quickly,
though: "I wish the Lord
would take me, but I
guess he has things left
for me to do."

Dear Classified Guys,
Last month I finally got my driver's
license. I'm very excited because
now I have independence from Mom
and Dad. Since I've been doing well
in school (I recently made the honor
roll), my Dad said he would buy me a
car. How great is that? He's been
reading the classified section and
calling some ads. The problem is
that he only wants to spend about
$2000 and all of those cars are more
than five years old. Most of my
friends drive cars that are worth a lot
more than that! Some even drive
their parent's SUV's or sports cars to
school. I don't want to be the only
one pulling into the school parking
lot with a wrecker. How do I
convince my Dad that he
should be looking at higher', .
priced ads? After all, my .
grades are good and I've
seen his paycheck so I know
he can afford it.

Carry: It sounds like someone might
be a little spoiled. Maybe your dad
doesn't realize that good grades are sup-
posed to translate to a BMW convert-
ible?
Cash: First of all, congratulations on
your good grades. It's very important to

do well in school, not just for recogni-
tion, but for your future as well!
Carry: However, you should also be
grateful that your parents are willing to
help you out with your first car.
Regardless of your father's paycheck,
they do have reasons for their decisions.
Cash: If your Dad is circling ads in a
specific price range or type of car, he
probably has good reason. He may be
considering all of the expenses, not just
the initial cost of the car.
Carry: For example, older cars are
typically cheaper to insure, especially
for teenagers. If you are going to help
pay the insurance premium, you may be


very thankful for his decision.
Cash: With an older car, you and
your Dad may not be that upset over
minor dings or dents that "just happen"
in the school parking lot. However, if
you were driving a new car, the smallest
scratch could be a big issue.
Carry: Try sitting down and talking
with your Dad. If you're concerned
about his decision, discuss it with him
so you can better understand. Then
maybe you can work together on find-
ing a car you're both happy with.
Cash: After all, driving even a
"wrecker" to school beats riding in on
your bicycle!

Cruise Control
Before you hand your child a set of
car keys, ask yourself if they will be
driving safely. A recent survey of over
1000 people ages 15 to 17 was conduct-
ed by the Allstate Foundation. The
results found that 56% use a cell phone
while driving. More than 69% speed to
keep up with traffic, 64% speed to go
through a yellow light and 47% admit
that their passengers sometimes distract
them while driving. With statistics like
that, it's no wonder teenage accidents
account for over $40 billion dollars a
year in damages.
Joy Ride
Do you know how your kids are driv-
ing? According to The Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the
leading public health problem for
teenagers is auto accidents. Fortunately,
technology offers some options for par-
ents. In addition to bumper sticker cam-
paigns that allow other drivers to report
erratic driving, there are now many GPS
systems and on-board video cameras
that allow you to track your child's des-
tination and speed right from your PC.

Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? Let us hear it. Leave a

Back Seat Driver
My daughter was exceptionally
nervous for her driving test so the
instructor allowed me to come along,
provided I sit quietly in the backseat.
My daughter did extremely well
throughout the test. However, the
instructor was overly critical.
On the last street my daughter was
directed to parallel park the car. At
the first opening, she pulled up, sig-
naled and backed in perfectly.
Looking out the window, the instruc-
tor again criticized her saying he
would have to deduct 15 points for
the parking.
I couldn't take it anymore and burst
out, "15 points? That parking was
perfect!"
The instructor calmly pointed out
the window and replied, "Yes, but
she parked in front of a fire hydrant."
(Thanks to Randy N)

Bringing the


outdoors in


By Tom Carr
CNHI News Service

TRAVERSE CITY,,Mich.
- The brass bass are
among the first things peo-
ple notice when they step
into Claudette and Keith
Johnson's home.
Original brass castings of
the popular northern
Michigan game fish are in
several places in the home:
as pulls on the door of the
den and on kitchen and
bathroom cabinets.


"We do live on Bass
Lake," Claudette Johnson
said.
They chose to go with
the artisan's touch in that
and other aspects of their
home, as. many in northern
Michigan do.
They opt for the extra
expense, because of the
lasting satisfaction of
something that can not be
mass produced.
"We won't duplicate that.
That's theirs," said Paul
Griggs, owner of Kamarca,


the contractor who enlisted
sculptor T.J. Carroll to de-
sign and cast them just for
the Johnsons.
Generally, Carroll creates
sculpture that is strictly
decorative, but here he had
to consider functional as-
pects, such as how the
pulls feel to the hand.
A lot of people want the
artisan's touch if they have
an older home and want to
remain true to its classic
style.
That was Sandy Taylor's


thinking when she remod-
eled an older house in Tra-
verse City. Other than that,
she didn't really know
what she wanted for the
home.
What she came up with
were clean, modern lines
on cabinets and the stair-
way, while maintaining the
timelessness of the home
by keeping the floors
wooden.
"I really didn't want car-
peting," she said. "I have
dogs so I knew I didn't

want that."
Sometimes, people go for
things that are strictly
northern, like a shower
Griggs tiled with a geolog-
ic-rainbow of Lake Superi-
or stones.
Sometimes, the best
northern materials are right
outside the door.
That's where Brian May-
nard found the curvy cedar
branches and trunks for the
banisters and a ladder to a
reading loft in Whispering
Waters Bed and Breakfast
Retreat south of Traverse
City, which he co-owns
and manages.
He found them among
cedars he calls "sweepers"
- those trees that grow a
curved trunk because they
started growing under a
dead tree or on the side of
a rise in the ground.
He doesn't use the
sweepers that grow on riv-
er banks because those
help control bank erosion
and shade the river.
"I get them from the
swamp, not from the riv-
er," said Maynard, a stone-
mason by trade.
The cedar, debarked and
smoothed, is not finished.
It has a natural shine and
smoothness helped by the
oils of the hands that have
touched it.
He formed the cedars
into woven or sunburst de-
signs.
"The material determines
what the final effects will
be," he said. "The material
has to speak to you. You
can't force it or it'll look
forced."

Some homes have touch-
es that are different for rea-
sons other than the natural
shapes or properties of the
materials.
Not everyone's into ex-
clusively local touches.
Rare Earth Hardwoods
near Traverse City has
made a business of provid-
ing exotic woods to
builders and remodelers.
There's blond-and-red,
mountain-grade bloodwood
that can give a floor an al-
most tigerlike striping or
the aptly named purple-
heart, both of South Ameri-
ca; the honeylike Osage or-
ange of the central United
States; or the red-blond-
and-brown grains of
African Boire.
Rare Earth's Web site
states that the company is
committed to responsible
harvesting, wherever the
wood comes from.
Working in exotic woods,
stones, tiles and similar
materials can take some ex-
tra time. That includes re-
searching the availability
and properties of the mate-
rials and determining if the
providers are using envi-
ronmentally friendly forest
management and other
practices.
"You can spend a lot of
time looking when it's
something that's not com-
mon," Griggs said. "And if
you're .working with tropi-
cal woods, you really have
to know who you're deal-
ing with."
Every once in a while, a
homeowner calls on an ar-
tisan to create something to
tell people just whose
house it is.
"I've done some oddball
things, like making 8-foot-
tall baseball bats for (for-
mer Detroit Tiger) Kirk
Gibson," said Tom De-
Jonge, a woodworker in
Harbor Springs.'
He's also created log
staircases that appear to
have thick, supporting
beam logs that are curved.
In actuality, that curved-log
effect was achieved with
boards laminated together.
DeJonge.has also build a
lot of circular staircases,
some with logs and others
with cut boards.
"Every circular staircase
we've done is different,"
he said. "I like to do things
differently every time any-
way. It keeps you fresh and
keeps you challenged."
Lee Ann Bullough, who
is having a home built in
Traverse City, had DeJonge
create a black-walnut-and-
iron staircase. Instead of a
typical, 90-degree turn, it
features a curve.
She's been impressed
with how his crew has
glued together a couple
hundred of thin pieces of
wood to make it look like a
curving beam.
"It's been a lot of work
for them, but it's been
worth it," she said. "I don't
like cookie-cutter things."
DeJonge and Griggs have
both worked with wooden-
boat builders in the past to
learn some complicated as-
pects of woodworking
where the lines are not all
square.
It's hard work, but De-
Jonge found out early in
his career that he would
prefer to'go in a creative
direction where every job
would be different.
"I was-casing office win-


dows in a building for
three w6eks," he said. "It
got a little bit boring."
