Is the state

changing

its tune?
* Florida
lawmakers may
scrap official
state song
By Vanessa Fultz
Special to the Free Press
After 72 years, the
state of Florida may be
changing its tune, Flori-
da lawmakers are con-
sidering retiring the cur-
rent state song, "The
Swanee River (Old
Folks at Home)," due to
lyrics some say are
racist.
The song was desig-
nated the official state
song in 1935.
Written by Stephen C.
Foster, the song con-
tains the p oh,
darkeys" and references
to the. "old plantation."
Sen. Tony Hill (D-
Jacksonville) and Rep.
Ed Homan (R-Tampa)
are planning to file leg-
islation next year to
change the song.
Gov. Charlie Crist
may support the effort.
At his January inaugu-
ration Crist abandoned
the state song in ex-
change for a song writ-
ten by blues singer
Charles Atkins. It's been
a long-standing tradi-
tion for governors to
play the state song at
the inauguration.
Local musicians, civic
leaders and others had
mixed opinions about
the issue.
Herold White, an area
musician, has sung the
song publicly for years.
He is against replacing
it. For White, the song
put Suwannee County
on the map.
"We are proud of it,"
he said. "Whether
you're in Illinois or
Iowa, everyone knows
the Suwannee River be-
cause of the song. That's
part of our history and
it should stay like it is."
Dick Grillo, another
Suwannee County mu-
sician., said Stephen Fos-
ter wasn't trying to be
derogatory but to sim-
ply tell a story of people
in the places they lived
in history.
"You can't change his-
tory," he said.
"The Swanee River" is
a favorite of Grillo's. He
sings it every chance he
gets and has done so for
years. But Grillo sings a
cleaned-up version. In-
stead of using the

A water shortage advi-
sory remains in effect until
further notice from the
Suwannee River Water

advisory has been in effect
since the end of Nov. 2006,
when SRWMD officials
announced that the water
tables throughout

Lafayette County and sur-
rounding areas are steadi-

They also warned the

supply. According to SR-

A final decision by the

made regarding the fu-

struct an 800 megawatt
coal plant on 3,000 acres

After hearing state-

not a full-blown meal on
this particular night, still
refreshments were avail-

all the families.

Enjoying a family tradition! The Brock, Johnson and Moses families gathered at the Day Community Center for their annual family re-
union on March 9-10 with nearly 90 family members in attendance. The group enjoyed a softball game, talent show and a delicious
meal just before the auction. The event is held each March. photos by Ed Taylor


with all the trimmings that
went with it. The deserts
topped off the wonderful
meal.
The highlight of Satur-
day evening had to be the
talent show when family
members put their unique
talent on display. Mostly
the kids were participants
here, although some of the
older ones were involved
as well. Anything from
gymnastics to singing was
all part of the special show.
Later in the evening on
Saturday following the tal-
ent show an old-fashion
White Elephant sale was
held where items each
family brought in were
auctioned off. The funds
from the auction and other
fund raisers are used to
offset the expense of the


reunion each year. Over
$1,800 was raised that
night much to the pleasure
of all those in attendance.
A beautiful quilt was auc-
tioned off as well. The
quilt was unique in that in
it were photos of past fam-
ily members embroidered.
The final day of the re-
union was Sunday when
all the family members
gathered for the reading of
scriptures in their worship
of the Lord. "Each shared
their testimony with us
and we had a lot of good
gospel music that day,"
said Johnson. "It was a
good weekend and every-
one seemed to have en-
joyed it. When everyone
was leaving the last words
said was, 'see ya'll next
March.'"

Suwannee/lafayette Retired Educators March meeting


Suwannee/ Lafayette Re-
tired Educators met in Live
Oak at Grace Manor Mon-
day, March 12. After Bill
McMillan, president, fin-
ished the business meeting,
the program was turned
over to Roberta Richmond,
ELP teacher for Suwannee
County.
The ELP students with
Richmond went out in the
community of Suwannee
County and interviewed lo-
cal people about their occu-
pations and life in Suwan-
nee County. Some of the oc-
cupations were beekeeper,
dairy owner, mayor, news-
paper editor, superinten-
dent of schools, drug store
owner, saddle maker, horse
farm owner and others.
These interviews were
recorded on video and
sound.
This is what we watched
and heard. The CD starts
out with the Suwannee Riv-
er and ends with it, since so
much of Suwannee County
life revolves around the riv-
er.
The CD is available for
purchase from Roberta
Richmond at Suwannee In-


termediate School in Live
Oak.
During the month of
May, the students will be
performing a play at the lo-
cal schools, which is a se-
quel to the CD.
The history recorded on
the CD should be put in the
archives of Suwannee
County because of their
historical value and the
knowledge recorded there.
The students who inter-
viewed the various people
did a great job and should
certainly be commended.
After the program, every-
one enjoyed a great lunch
at Grace Manor and three
door prizes were awarded.
The next meeting will be
Monday, May 7 at the Live
Oak Community Presbyter-
ian Church where they will
honor new retirees from
the schools, scholarship
winners and grandparents
essay winners from fifth
grade. A covered dish sup-
per will be served starting
at 5:30 p.m.
A special thanks to the lo-
cal newspapers for their
coverage of this meeting.

closer to becoming dry.
Even the Suwannee River
is beginning to creep back
down after it had risen for
a short period of time.
Since the advisory was
implemented in Nov. 2006,
there has been very little
relief in the way of rainfall,
as evidenced by the in-
creasing hot and dry
weather as well as the fre-
quency of brush fires. At
the Lafayette County
Forestry station, the sign
has been changed to red in
order to warn residents
that the fire danger is ex-
tremely high.
This advisory, according
to Cindy Johnson, SRWMD
Communications Coordi-
nator, is still completely
voluntary. "The water
shortage advisory will re-
main in place until the
Governing Board deter-
mines that conditions have
improved enough to war-
rant lifting the advisory.
Considering we're about
16 inches below normal for
the year, we don't expect to
lift the advisory any time
soon," Johnson said.

Sam Beasley, the river
brings back less pleasant
memories.
"We were always taught.
not to go to the river," he
said.
Beasley said white girls
swimming in the springs
might scream if they saw
him and he would be beat-
en up. Besides that he said,
"When I was a baby some
of my cousins were beaten
to death and thrown into
the Suwannee River."
"That's what black peo-
ple came through," he said
casually.
How does Beasley feel


about the racist lyrics?
"The phrase is controver-
sial," he said. Beasley is in
favor of changing the state
song and thinks most
African Americans would
agree.
"We can't put it behind
us. It's like the holocaust;
it's something that doesn't
heal," he said.
Homan said lawmakers
will either choose a song or
allow songwriters to sub-
mit songs for a contest.

of protective coatings and stains. These fast-acting for-
mulas loosen and lift dirt, stains and discoloration in just
10( minutes. And-they are easy to use just mix with
water, spray on, u6 sh in and rinse off with a garden
hose.
Strip away deteriorating or unwanted finishes. If the
colored finish on your deck has seen better days or if
you want a different look remove it with a product
like Wolman DeckStrip Stain & Finish Remover. For
tough to remove 100 percent acrylic stains, use Wolman
DeckStrip ASR Acrylic Stain Remover. Both remove
oil- and water-based solid, semi-transparent and clear
finishes, and prepare wood for a new finish or stain. The
ready-to-use, highly concentrated formulas work in just
15 minutes without the need for multiple applications.
They contain special wetting agents and thickeners that
cling to all wood surfaces even vertical surfaces so
they are great for fences, gazebos, play sets and more!
Beautify and protect. Once your deck has been proper-
ly cleaned and restored, beautify and protect it with a
water-repellent coating. Apply a semi-transparent or sol-
id stain, like Wolman DuraStain, or a rich transparent
oil finish, like Wolman F&P, to enhance the beauty of
your deck.
Even if you decide not to stain, it's important to pro-
tect your deck with a dear water repellent sealer. Water
repellent sealers stop rain from penetrating the wood
surface, which can cause swelling, shrinking, warping
and cracking. Many water repellent sealers, including
Wolman RainCoat@, also contain a mildewcide that will
impede the growth of mildew on your deck during the
warm, humid months ahead.

Tips for frugal


Who doesn't want a pic-
ture-perfect garden? After
all, if you're going to in-
vest the time and effort
into revamping your land-
scape you don't want to
cut corners, right?
Actually, you can take
shortcuts in the garden to
save a lot of money with-
out compromising the fin-
ished product. This mostly
involves using some inex-
pensive items in place of
more costly ones when
possible. Here are a few
ideas to get you started.
Then use your imagination.
to cut costs even further..
Radical recycling: Con-
tainer gardening is an easy
way to add visual appeal
to a home. Containers are
generally simple to main-
tain and can be moved or
changed as whimsy di-
rects. Containers come in
all sorts of shapes and
sizes, from small terra-cot-
ta pots to large window
boxes. Large containers
can be somewhat costly,
and filling them to the
brim with rich soil can be
even more so. Instead of
spending a fortune, look
for inexpensive resin con-
tainers that have the look
of real ceramic or stone.
Fill the bottom half o( a
rather large container with
crushed up aluminum cans
and those discarded plastic
flower pots that your an-
nuals were packaged in at
the nursery. Fill the rest of
the container with soil and
you'll save money in the
process. Most plants have
shallow roots and they
will never even reach the
cans you have in the bot-
tom. What's more, the con-'
tainers are much lighter
from this effective "fill,"
and have improved,
drainage.
Use what you've got:
Why spend a lof'of money
on specialty items that cost
more when you can use
what you have around the
house, or modify inexpen-
sive gardening tools for
your purposes? For exam-
ple, many at-home garden-
ers enjoy the look of topi-
aries in their yard. Topiary
forms can be $20 or more,
depending upon size. In-
stead, use a tomato plant
cage with the ends tied off
to mimic a similar shape.
The cages cost a fraction of
the "forms," and no one
will know the difference
once your topiary has
filled it out. /
Make your own soil: Pre-
packaged gardening
blends cost more than if
you whip up some on your

Madison blanks Hornets


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
There are just some days you just
as soon forget. Or for the Lafayette
Hornets baseball team, a night you
just as soon forget. The night in
question was one night last week
when the Hornets took a bus ride to
Madison County to face the Madi-
son Indians in high school baseball.
The end result of the bus ride was
too positive as they found them-
selves on the short end of a 13-0
drilling on the road. The game was
called after five innings because of
the 10-run rule.
Evidently the Hornets left their
hitting bats on the bus as they man-
aged only. two hits in the game en


route to their worst defeat of the sea-
son. Thomas Byrd and Chad Hemp-
stead accounted for the two hits in
the loss. Byrd singled with one out
in the first inning and Hempstead
reached on a base hit of the infield
variety in the fifth frame.
Lafayette had a chance to get on
the scoreboard in the second inning
when Cody Singletary reached third
on a three-base error in right field.
But he' was left stranded there when
Chris Mercedes, Colby Keen and
Chace Walker were retired in order.
The Hornets stranded two base run-
ners in the third inning as well.
Madison put seven runs on the
scoreboard in the first inning against
Hornet starter Keen. The Indians


had seven hits in the inning as they
teed up with the first six batters
reaching base in the opening frame.
Eleven batters went to the, plate in
the frame for Madison.
Madison collected 16 hits in the
game off Keen. Rob Brown was per-
fect at the plate for Madison with
four hits in as many times at the
plate. The only quiet inning for
Madison was in the third when left
two runners stranded. The Indians
pushed home five runs in their half
of the fourth to put the game in the
win column. Ten batters went to the
plate in the inning.
The Hornets stranded five runners
and committed three errors in the
game.

errors but Anderson and
Hempstead had RBI sin-
gles in the inning. Skelly

inning when Fort White
pushed across four runs to
make it a 7-4 game. Three


Lafayette errors made two
of the runs unearned.
Fort White starter
George Demko, who al-
lowed the seven runs in
the first, settled down
over the next two and si-
lenced the Hornets bats.
Mercedes opened the Hor-
nets third when he
crushed a drive that one-
bounced the wall in center
for a double. But he was
left stranded.
Lafayette did push
home two runs in their
half of the fourth inning
when Skelly and Single-
tary scored back-to-back
doubles. Keen legged out
an infield hit that scored
Byrd.

I really enjoy sports!
I know a lot of people
say that and really don't
enjoy it as much as they
say.
But I enjoy sports of all
kinds. Now some I enjoy
more than I do othe'rs;but
in general the sports
world is a big thing for
me. It is not the most im-
portant in my life, but it
has always been a big part
of my life. I got hooked on
athletics when I used to
watch my two brothers
play basketball in a small
rural Kentucky town.
The "cracker box" gym
would hold about 200 and
it was packed every night
of a home game. We did
not have a football team
so baseball was a big
thing in the spring along
with track and field. I un-
derstand that the school
did field a football team
until they got beat 75-0
and they disband the team
after that.
So baseball and basket-
ball were big in our little
town of about.850 souls.
Now, I suppose that is
why I enjoy the folks in
Mayo and at Lafayette
High School. I enjoy all
the sports programs they


17". :


I.


Coach Blankenship


have (although I am still
learning about soccer). In
my time no one ever
heard the word soccer. If
they did they would have
thought it was a new can-
dy bar or something.
I have enjoyed the base-
ball season thus far. I like
to observe things when I
am at a game. So my mind
is not completely 100 per-
cent on the game, unless it
is a close one. I was ob-
serving over at Madison


Herbert Perry

and then at Fort White
last week how that former
major leaguer Herbert
Perry was relating to the
players on the Hornet
baseball team.
.My thinking was how
fortunate this team is to
have all that experience
on the field with them.
His feats while in high
school, his accomplish-
ments at U of F and his
tenure in the major
leagues. Wow! I thought,
what a great way to learn
from someone who has
been there. I know the
players on the Hornet
team appreciates all the
help that Perry brings to
the team. He is constantly
instructing even from
the coaches box. Coach
Stewart and Coach Perry
make a great team. We
never had anything like
that when I was in school.
My advice to the players?
Take advantage of it and
learn all you can from the
two coaches. Life will be
better for you if you do.
Coach Blank ....
I was talking with
Lafayette girls basketball
coach Jimmy Blankenship
the other day he said
their district will increase
by two teams next season.
Oak Hall and Hawthorne
will join the district and
that will give two strong
foes for the Lady Hornets
next season who will look
to win a sixth straight dis-
trict championship. We
look forward to the bas-
ketball season later this
year.

What can

you do about

Osteoarthritis?
Every year, approximate-
ly 400,000 Americans who
suffer from osteoarthritis
undergo knee replacement
surgery.
When all other options
for treating severe os-
teoarthritis of the knee
have been exhausted, artifi-
cial knee joints offer a solu-
tion with a high rate of
success. But how should
you prepare for this major
operation, and what can
you do afterwards, to pro-
tect the new joint and keep
it intact for years to come?
The American Arthritis So-
ciety has compiled some
useful and practical tips for
self-care, which are avail-
able on the Society's web-
site. Developed with the
help of some of the
world's leading knee sur-
geons, each tip is easy to
follow and can be helpful
in preparing for your oper-
ation. These and many
more suggestions regarding
osteoarthritis can be viewed
online at: www.america-

this past season, will look
to become the state's all
time leading scorer when
the 2007-08 tips off. It
seems like Land has been
playing forever. When I
first started covering
sports for the Mayo Free
Press she was a starter for
Coach Blankenship and
only in the seventh grade
then.
Blankenship said sever-
al colleges are looking at
Land. I recommended her
to the University of Ken-
tuiicky women's coach
Mickie DeMoss. Land
will be a credit wherever
she goes.
Of course being from
the state of Kentucky I
have followed the devel-
opments concerning U of
F basketball coach Billy
Donovan going to UK. I
was hoping it would be-
come a reality but I can
see why he decided to
stay in Gainesville. In
1996 when I was covering
sports for a paper in Ken-
tucky, I covered UK bas-
ketball and was at several
games of the Cats that
year when Donovan was
an assistant to Rick Piti-
no. I was impressed with
him then and the way he
handled himself. When
Coach P left UK for the
Boston Celtics, Donovan
was my choice to replace
Pitino. The reason he did
not: he was too young
and inexperienced. Well,
now they were getting
ready to offer all the
horse farms in Kentucky
if he would come there.
Lafayette Hornet foot-
ball will be here before
we know it. Coach Joey
Pearson:will look to re-
turn to the state playoffs
once again. We are look-
ing forward to the grid-
iron season as well.
Until next time, good
sports everyone and be
good sports!

Gresham then cleared the
bases with his long drove
over the left centerfield

Demko took the setback
allowing seven runs on
eight hits. He did not
strike out a batter and he
walked one. He was fol-

Alex Gilmer in the third'

6 unconventional Mother's Day gifts


If you're a son or daughter who has exhausted his or
her list of Mother's Day gifts, you're probably not alone.
It only takes a few years to work through the perfumes,
blouses and house plants that are the typical Mother's
Day fare. So how about trying something different this
year? Here are a few ideas for those moms who might
appreciate something unexpected.
1. Tickets to a show If you live near a metropolitan
area, you can purchase tickets to a Broadway show that
may be touring. Or if you live close to the bright lights of
Times Square in NYC, plan a day of fun for mom, com-
plete with dinner out and seats at a musical or drama. If
your mom grew up in the 60s, she'll probably love "Jer-
sey Boys," which offers a glimpse into the lives of the
popular group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. With
infectious songs, such as "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag
Doll," and "Sherry," she'll be singing along and bopping
in her seat.
2. Hotel stay While you may be the apple of her eye,
what mom wouldn't enjoy a night or two away from
home at a local hotel for some pampering or relaxation?
Secure her a room for two (dad or her other special
someone can go along). Even just a night away will
recharge her spirits. And not having to make the bed or
cook a meal will win rave reviews.
3. Name a star The International Star Registry
(www.starregistry.com) allows you to purchase and
name a star. When Mom looks up into the night sky,
she'll know there is a star out there with her name, and
she'll join the celebrities, dignitaries, and thousands of
individuals worldwide who also have stars bearing their
names.
4. Fashion or home makeover You've seen those
shows where expert designers transform a person or a
home in a matter of a weekend. Why not give Mom that

siblings can do the work. For a fashion makeover, set up
an appointment with a personal shopper or hair and

5. Shopping spree Have everyone chip in to get a

in. This could be a high-end boutique in your area or one

Pilots take to the skies for a good cause


Jim Leroy, World Renowned Aerobatic Pilot


T he skies over Lake City,
will roar with the sound
of supercharged
airplanes and split with
the sights of sensational aerial
aerobatics during the Rotary Air
Show April 28 and 29 at Lake City
Municipal Airport.
Headlining the event is world-
renowned aerobatic pilot Jim Leroy.
Leroy, who now makes his home in
Lake City, will be flying his Pitts
Bulldog single-engine plane in a


stunning display of daring and skill.
Joining Leroy for the show are
Jack Wells and his L-29 jet and the
popular Lima Lima Flight
Demonstration Team. Pre-show
events are scheduled for each day
also, including Grounds the Limit
skydiving team, a display of World
War II and experimental aircraft.
An extra special and timely -
event will be a 35-40 minute
Homeland Security demonstration
involving local law enforcement and


emergency personnel. The public
address announcer will inform the
crowd of a simulated scenario in
which a terrorist may have infiltrated
the air show area and planted a bomb
on one of the air show aircraft.
Many of the acts performing at the
show are appearing at rates well
below their customary charge. Their
generosity is on display in part
because all. profits from the show
will benefit Haven Hospice
Suwannee Valley Care Center and


the Columbia County Senior
Services Lifestyle Enrichment
Center.
"This may be the best show yet,"
said Mike Lee, Lake City Rotarian
coordinating the charitable event.
"I've been involved with ourw local
air show for many years and each
time, the show proves to be a fun-
filled, family oriented event that the
community really supports."
Tickets for the show are only $5
each day, children 6 and under free.


Gates open at 10 a.mn. April 28 with a
2 p.m. show time, and 11 a.m.
Sunday, April 29, with a 3 p.m.
show.
Advance tickets for the Lake City
Rotary Air Show are available at the
Lake City Reporter and Lake City-
Columbia County Chamber of
Commerce. Tickets will also
available at the gate on show dates.
Additional information on the air
show can be found at
www.rotaryairshow.net.

Buzz Mathews


just keeps plugging along


By Mike Sawyers
CNHI News Service

Charles "Buzz" Mathews caught his first
smallmouth bass in the Potomac River 70 years
ago on a cheap, floating plug.
"It's the only one my dad would let me use,"
Mathews said. "He didn't want me to lose one
of those expensive, sinking lures on some snag
at the bottom of the river."
Perhaps the greatest value of yesteryear's an-
gling paraphernalia and a collection of hun-
dreds of lures at Mathews' house on Bedford
Street is the stories they hook and pull out of
the mind of this veteran river rat.
Mathews may have been born in Cumber-
land's North End but his values were honed as
sharp as a treble hook as he drifted along on
the surface of the Potomac, usually with his fa-
ther, Thomas.
"We'd float for days and never see another
person," Mathews, an octogenarian, recalled.
"The bass season opened July 15 in those days
so that's when our floats started."
Attempts to float from Oldtown to Paw Paw
before nightfall were consistently unsuccessful.
Eventually, the Mathews started to launch a bit
farther downstream, using a sickle and a scythe
to cut through the brush so that they could
launch the homemade, 15-foot boat.
"One year we finally saw a man standing
and poling a boat down the river," Mathews
said. "My dad said we needed to catch up to
him because he could tell us things about the
river we didn't know. I'll never forget it. The
man had on a dress suit but it was several sizes
too small. The cuffs of the sleeves were way
up his arms and the pants cuffs were way up
his legs.
"He had his sick son, about 9 or 10, wrapped
up in blanket in the bottom of the boat and was
heading on the.river all the way to Hancock to
the doctor. I don't know where he came from
or what happened. We never saw him again.'"
Preparing to float the Potomac in pre-syn-
thetic days took two weeks. Wooden boats
would be soaked with scalding water until the
pieces of wood would swell enough to keep out
the river. Twenty-gallon lard cans would carry


food and gear but had to be waterproofed on
the bottom with tar.
"We made our own ice box," Mathews said
Mathews said there is no comparing the uwc
of the river then and now. When he was a teen-
ager, he would float for days without ever heail-
ing a dog bark or seeing a person.
"The only sign of civilization were two
railroad tracks and the freight trains that
used them on the West Virginia side of
the river," he said. "Nowadays the river
is a regular playground. I think it's
cleaner but there are more fishermen
and that results in fewer fish."
At the end of a float in the 1930s, the
Mathews would pull out at Magnolia
where a railroad worker had access to a
telephone. The call would be relayed from
place to place up the river, as was the state
of the art of phone calling in those days, until
it reached Buzz' grandfather in Cumberland


We'd float for days

and never see another

person," Mathews, an

octogenarian, recalled

"The bass season

opened July 15 in those

days so that's when

our floats started.

who would drive down the river and bring
them home.
There was more to a float trip on the river
than just fishing.
"I started smoking and I didn't think my par-
ents knew about it. I figured my dad would kill
me if he found out. We were starting on a
three-day trip and I thought I'd never make it
without having a smoke.

,


"As soon as we started, my dad lit his
pipe and that made me want a smoke
[. even more. After a few minutes he
turned to me and said 'boy, I brought
you a pipe and a can of tobacco but
don't ever tell your mother or she'll kill
3e both of us.'"
Mathews' biggest smallie from the
Potomac was a 4-pounder. His dad
taught him and then Buzz taught his
seven sons that you weren't fishing un-
less one treble hook scraped dirt on the
bank when you cast. "That's where a lot
of bass lay and they strike out of instinct when
the lure hits right on them," he said.
Following a recent knee operation, Mathews
is back in floating shape. He spends a fair
amount of time, however, fishing for lures.
He's a serious collector and historian of plugs
from Pfleuger to South Bend and from Heddon
to Shakespeare.
He'll plop down 25 bucks at a lure auction

fishing lure collection

for a Shimmy Wiggler by True Temper. He'll
hit the road for a weekend at a collectors' gath-
ering.
"The collectors come in to these things from
all over the country," Mathews said. "Some
spend hundreds of dollars for one plug but peo-
ple who aren't interested in these things would-
n't give you a dime for a whole collection."
What was Mathews' favorite, most produc-
tive lure over the years?
"Whatever lure you can keep in the water on
a regular basis is the best lure. You can't catch
'em in the kitchen. What works one day won't
work the next. You just have to keep on fish-
ing," he said.
Buzz Mathews doesn't use a steel Shake-
speare casting reel with a one-to-one retrieve
ratio, as did his father, but he keeps on fishing,
collecting plugs and memories along the way.

Female -Patt
When the topics of hair and women are mentioned in the
same breath, often it's in reference to hair-removal options.
There's much talk about waxing, shaving and other routes to
hair-free bodies among the female population. What one
doesn't always hear about are the women facing another hair
issue: baldness.
Female-pattern baldness is exemplified by all-over thinning of
the hair, whether due to hormones, aging or genetic
predisposition. Unlike male-pattern-baldness, hair loss occurs
all over the head, but the hairline is maintained.
According to MedlinePlus, a service of the U.S. National
Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, hair
grows from its follicle at an average rate of about 1/2 inch per
month. Each hair grows for two to six years, then rests, and
then falls out. A new hair soon begins growing in its place. At
any one time, about 85 percent of the hair is growing and 15
percent is resting.
When baldness occurs, the hair that falls out is not replaced
by new hair. The causes of baldness are not well known, but are
linked to aging, genetics and endocrine hormones. Particularly
after menopause, hormonal changes can result in thinner hair
on the head and coarser facial hair. Although new hair isn't
being produced, hair follicles remain alive and there is the
possibility that new hair growth can be stimulated.
While baldness is largely no reason for concern from a
medical standpoint, from a cosmetic and emotional point of
view it can be traumatic. As a result, many women look for
ways to reverse or camouflage hair loss. These include:
Minoxidil treatment: Minoxidil may help hair to grow in 20
percent to 25 percent of the female population, and in the
majority it may slow or stop the loss of hair. It is the only hair-
loss drug approved by the FDA for use on women. It is
expensive, however, and hair loss may resume after treatment is
stopped.
Hair weaving or wigs: These are less-expensive options for
hidifig hair loss.
Hair transplants: Small plugs of hair from healthy areas of
the scalp are taken and transplanted where baldness is
occurring. This presents a small risk for infection and scarring,
and can also be expensive.
Suturing of hair pieces: This was once popular but is now
discouraged because attaching hair pieces to the scalp can

result in scarring, abscesses and infections. The use of hair
implants made of artificial fibers was banned by the FDA
because of the high rate of infection.
Beyond female-pattern baldness, there are other.reasns, hair
loss may occur in women. This is largely due to medications or
illnesses. Breakage from hair appliances, dying or other
chemical processes can also cause hair loss. Certain skin
conditions or immune disorders may also contribute to
baldness.
If baldness is bothersome or unexpected, talk to your doctor
to rule out any medical causes.

Dear Classified Guys,
Remember the days of cassette
tapes? You know those things that
came between the 8-track and the
CD. Well I have literally hundreds of
them and I don't know what to do
with them all. Were talking thou-
sands of hours of Billy Joel,
Madonna, U2 and the Beatles, to
name a few. Throwing them out
seems like a downright crime. Today
I have everything on my MP3 player
so the tapes just sit in the closet tak-
ing up space. I can't bring myself to
toss them since I spent most of my
allowance on them growing up. My
parents are lucky. They saved all
their 45 records from their youth and
put them in a gorgeous jukebox that
they can still listen to every day.
But my generation, the one .
with cassette tapes, is left
out in the cold. Is there ..
anything I can do with them /
or are they destined to sit in
my closet forever?

Carry: It seems like some things
become classics and others just become
obsolete. The hard part is trying to
guess which ones will be the classics.
Cash: Take vinyl records, for exam-
ple. Like you stated, the 45 rpm records


UIE

CLASSIFIED


^ GUYS



Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


@2007 The Classified GuysP


of the 50's and 60's became nostalgic,
synonymous with the "Do-Wop" era.
However, most of my records from the
70's barely get an offer at a yard sale.
Carry: Neither do my 8-track tapes!
Cash: It's not just music mediums
though. All kinds of electronics and
related items are becoming obsolete.
Videotapes are being replaced by
DVD's. Most video rental stores barely
have a VHS tape on the shelf.
Carry: And when it comes to TV's,
everyone today wants the high defini-
tion sets, LCD or plasma screens.
Cash: However, that doesn't mean
there isn't a market for your cassette
tape collection. You may be surprised


to learn that there is a collector for prac-
tically everything, even those items
bought with your hard earned
allowance.
Carry: If your tapes are originals and
not copies, then take out a short ad in
your newspaper. There may be some-
one right in your area who collects
them. You could be surprised at the
number of calls you get.
Cash: Fortunately, cassette tapes are
not completely obsolete just yet. Most
used cars are still equipped with a cas-
sette deck to play your collection.
Carry: And remember the bright
side. At least you didn't spend your
allowance on Betamax videos.


Speeding Along
Before CD's and MP3's, vinyl records
were all the craze. But why did they come
in three speeds: 78 rpm, 33-1/3 rpm and
45 rpm? While some of the reasoning
had to do with sound quality, most was a
result of marketing. The 78's were the
standard up until the late 1940's when
Columbia mass released their 33-1/3 rpm
"Microgroove" system. The .12" record
held more music and became the new
standard. However, at the same time
RCA developed the 45 rpm record that
was only 7" in diameter. It became the
popular choice for releasing single songs.
Staying Hip
With the advances in technology, most
of us need a technical dictionary to keep
up with the lingo. Previous generations
used terms such as "record" or "cassette"
to describe the medium. Today, the lingo
is far more encrypted using abbreviations
like CD, DVD or MP3. While most of
us recognize the term "Compact Disk"
(CD), fewer know the term "Digital
Versatile Disk", formerly "Digital Video
Disc" (DVD). And for those not aware,
MP3 stands for MPEG-1 (Moving
Picture Experts Group) Audio Layer 3.
It's a good thing they shortened that!
Got a question? Call (888) 242-3644 or write:
PO Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Lessons Learned
My co-worker and I are music
teachers and were traveling to a con- I
ference together recently. About an
hour into the trip, I pulled out a map
and completely unfolded it across the I
dashboard. Its size was quite obnox-
ious.
After finding our route, I then strug-
gled to refold it back to its original
shape. After several failed attempts, I.
was convinced it wasn't possible. As
my desperation grew, my co-worker
finally pulled the car over to help. He
grabbed the map and like magic fold-
ed it perfectly into its original form.
"That's amazing" I told him, "How
did you do that?"
"I've had a lot of practice," he
smiled at me. "As a kid I played the
accordion!"

trend experts offer tips for

saluting couples in style


FAMILY FEATURES

n recent years, wedding traditions have changed dramatically, and the bride and groom aren't
the only ones affected. People postponing marriage until later in life and more couples living
together before tyiiig the knot are just a few of the recent social changes impacting today's
weddings. Gift-giving trends and pre-wedding rituals, like showers and bachelorette parties,
have also become more sophisticated and complex.
One could say that modern wedding celebrations are more reflective of reality. As one card from
American Greetings points out, today's couples have a bond that transcends any ceremony. The front
of the card, adorned in Tiffany blue simply reads, "Cherish," in silver. The inside greeting reads,
"Congratulations on your forever friendship and your promise of love."
Celebrating a marriage today is similar to making any relationship work. It requires understanding,
thoughtfulness and patience.


Trendy colored wrap and bags make it easy to complement any couple's taste. Fresh
new card designs allow shoppers to celebrate a wedding in style. American Greetings
and Carlton products pictured here are available in all Target card departments.


S -"" ': party
While friends and family have been influenced by changes
in today's weddings, no group has seen more challenges
than the bridesmaids. Celebrating established relationships
and more independent brides is a difficult task. To assist
these loyal friends, here are a few suggestions for bachel-
orette party themes:
Friends and family
The traditional bachelorette party doesn't have to be so ...
traditional. One of the key- 'elements of any good bachelor-
ette party is the location, so choose a spot that everyone
will appreciate.
An area such as an outdoor shopping center will allow
everyone to come together for a manicure or spa treat-
ment, go off on their own to shop and then reunite for a
casual group dinner.
A night on the town -
For ihowe who like to celebrate, a night or the iton or a
wine tasting at a local winery is a perfect option. Another
activity that can include everyone is a progressive dinner
You start out at a trendy location for drinks and .ippeti-
zers, move to a favorite restaurant for dinner and end at
a fun little spot to enjoy dessert.
No matter what option you choose, be sure that there
is no evidence left behind the next day. One Amencan
Greetings card, perfect for any bachelorette parts
guest of honor, is a reminder of this lesson.
The card features a pink color scheme
and a camera on the front and reads,
"A night to remember," the inside
greeting continues, "and the pictures
to prove it."
Road trip or spa day
A growing trend is for the bridal
party to come together with the bride
for a day trip or a day at the spa to
unwind from all of the planning just
before the actual wedding. This is a
great way to be alone together as a group
one last time.


Innovative gifts
are made even
more memorable
with stylish presen-
tations. This trendy
tea set display could
double as a scene
from a catalogue.
Add frosted
cellophane
wrap and
ribbon to
accentuate
the overall look,
while maintaining
the focus on the
beautiful A
presentation.

Gift giving for any
Finding the perfect wedding gift has
never been more difficult. With the need
for the traditional "starter" gifts mini-
mized to some extent by many couples
choosing to live together before they
marry, and a desire to choose something
that really represents the couple, is
there even such a thing as the "perfect
wedding gift" anymore?
"The key to finding the perfect gift is
to try and match the couple's taste, and
to celebrate what makes the relationship
special," said Angela Thompson Every-
day Cards Product Manager for Target
at American Greetings. "In design-
ing cards, wrap and accessories
for weddings, we strive to
create products that are appro-
priate for a wide range of
brides, grooms and their
guests."
Thompson offers the.-
following gifting tips:
S Let them know who
it is from Be sure
to add a little bit of
yourself to the gift.
0U Give them a scrap-
book with photos
and keepsakes that
reflect times that
you have spent
together.


Wedding
a Celebrate their relationship -
A gift that comes .from the heart will
mean a great deal to them, so take
some time to really think about the
couple when selecting a gift.
a A gift certificate for an experience
that they can enjoy together is a
terrific idea. With health on the top
of everyone's mind, many couples
might enjoy a gift certificate for
yoga or a cooking class.
In addition to being more health
conscious, many couples today are
more socially aware. A gift in the
couple's name to a charity that
.means something to them is a won-
derfully thoughtful gesture.
Have some fun In the end, you
want the couple to enjoy your gift, so
take some time to enjoy the process
o ..of selecting one.
a Instead of gening them an item for
their kitchen, create a basket of
spices, fun cooking utensils and a
homemade recipe book. They will
have as much fun using everything
as you did picking it all out.
a Pair a gift with a gift certificate
to show thoughtfulness, and flexi-
bility. Pick out a frame that would
go with their d6cor and give them
a gift' certificate from their photog-.
rapher for a favorite print to inciuetlt.


"I


The colors of today's weddings make a statement about the bride and groo
Guests who want to make an impression can coordinate cards and gifts wit
the chosen color scheme of the wedding.


How make '; gift
the best

With many people today waiting longer
before they marry, weddings have
begun to reflect more matured styles.
To keep up with these fashionable
weddings, guests are striving to impress
with the presentation of their gifts.
Thompson says to be creative in pre-
senting your gift, and if you are having
trouble coming up with ideas, let the
gift itself act as your inspiration:
Consider non-traditional
color combinations
Since every bride has her own style
and taste in color, guests shouldn't feel
limited by the traditional 'wedding
palettes. "Brides take a great deal of
time in coordinating the colors or tone
of their weddings," said Thompson. "The
colors in a wedding reflect the bride and
groom's personality, so matching your
gift wrap and accessories to their color
scheme will ensure a presentation more
aligned with their tastes and styles."
Accessorize, accessorize,
accessorize
Weddings are a fun occasion and the
