Dare Graduation 2007


Submitted by: Lafayette
County Sheriffs Office
SRO/Sgt Scott Hamlin 62-5
On April, 12, 2007 the
Lafayette County Sheriffs
Office graduated 65 6th
graders from the DARE Pro-
gram. The program was
taught by SRO/Sgt Scott
Hamlin to give students a
better understanding of the
dangerous effects of alcohol,
tobacco, and other drugs.
The students were taught
about the effects these sub-
stances have on their body,
mind and attitude. There
were classes on how to
"Cool It," which gives dif-
ferent ways to deal with
anger. The first class was on
respect, not just for them-
selves but also how to re-
spect other people and their
feelings and emotions.
There was also a class on
social and legal responsibili-
ties that they as 6th graders
already have to deal with,
and the difference between
the two. We learned about
the many different ways
that companies use adver-
tising to get us to want their
products so bad that we
have to buy it. The students
were amazed to find out
that the last TV commercial


advertising cigarettes was
aired on December 31, 1970,
but since we see so much of
it in our everyday lives and
on TV we just assume that
they are still being adver-
tised.
Another class was taught
on how to give a confident
response when asked to try
an illegal substance. The
students participated in
many different scenarios to
practice the things they
learned. Nicholas Single-
tary graduated the program
with the highest honor be-
cause of his participation in
workbook completion and
classroom attitude. This
was a very hard decision to
make since the entire 6th,
grade is such an awesome
group of students.
I would like to thank all
the students for there hard
work and determination to
join the Lafayette County
Sheriffs Office in letting this
community know that we
will not accept illegal drugs
in this county. While the
Sheriffs Office continues to
stop the supply of drugs
coming into this county, we
will also continue programs
to stop the demand for
them.


Did You Know?
The U.S. city with the highest population continues to be
New York City, home to more than 8 million people. That
figure more than doubles the second most-populated city,
Los Angeles, which has just under 4 million residents ac-
cording to 2005 U.S. Census Bureau (USCB) statistics.
Chicago is third on the list, and then Houston, one of three
Texas cities to make the top 10, comes in fourth with just
over 2 million residents. As far as states go, New Jersey is
the most densely populated state, with an estimated 1,121
people per square mile. Boosting that number is a handful
of densely populated New Jersey cities, including Hoboken
(the second most densely populated city in the country)
and Jersey City. Each of those cities is in dose proximity to
New York, further adding to the already large New York
metropolitan area, which USCB estimates is roughly 18.7
million people.

Kids often bear brunt of air pollution


Many times, environmental activists
will attempt to humanize the issue of air
pollution by attempting to put a name or
face with the problem to make the issue
hit home a little harder. A common ap-
proach is to imagine what the current pol-
lution rate will do to your great grandchil-
dren, who will be left to deal with the
consequences of their forefathers' irre-
sponsible behavior.
However, upon closer inspection, those
activists would perhaps be better served
informing people about the effects of air
pollution on their own children. Unbe-
knownst to many, children today are gen-
erally more likely to be exposed to harm-
ful pollutants than any other group.

Why Are Kids So Susceptible?
According to the California Office of
Environmental Health Hazard Assess-
ment (OEHHA), children often face
heightened exposure to air pollutants for
a number of reasons. First and foremost,
children breathe differently than adults.
In addition to breathing more rapidly
thar adults, many children often breathe
through their mouths, which bypasses the
filtering process that occurs when people
breathe through their noses. Both of these
things increase children's exposure to pol-
lutants in the air.
Another problem is where children
spend the bulk of their time, namely out-
doors. Particularly in the summer months
when smog levels are higher, children
spend far more time outdoors than do
adults, again increasing their exposure to


air pollutants.
What makes these facts so troubling is
that, unlike those of full-grown adults, the
immune systems of children are not fully
developed, making any exposure to pollu-
tants more dangerous to children than the
same exposure would be to adults.

How Are Kids Being Harmed?
The effect of pollutants on children
varies depending on the pollutant a child
has been exposed to. Particulate matter,
for instance, which can come from both
natural and manmade sources, can be es-
pecially damaging to children who al-
ready have respiratory problems. This is
because particulate matter is so tiny it can
bypass a body's natural defense systems
and penetrate deep into a person's lungs.
Children with pre-existing respiratory
conditions like asthma can have their situ-
ations exacerbated by exposure to particu-
late matter. Also, research has indicated
that children who grow up in areas such
as Los Angeles, where smog is a relative
constant, experience a noticeable lag in
lung function growth.
Another problem in areas where smog
is common is the prevalence of ozone.
Formed by chemical reactions in the at-
mosphere involving sunlight and gases,
ozone can result in numerous problems
for children. When exposed to heightened
levels ot ozone, such as those found in ur-
ban areas with lots of smog, problems can
include a temporary reduction of lung
function, wheezing or coughing, and
shortness of breath. And much like what


results when asthmatics are exposed to
too much particulate matter, overexpo-
sure to ozone can exacerbate an existing
asthma condition.
So while environmentalists understand-
ably try to connect a person's behavior to-

day to potential consequences in the years
to come, it's important for all to under-
stand that, when it comes to air pollution,
the consequences aren't only affecting
your grandchildren's children, but your
own children as well.

Dear Lafayette County:
Two months has passed
now since my deployment
to Iraq began, and there are
ever-evolving changes, al-
-most daily as to 'the Iraqi
situation, both physically
and politically. The weath-
er continues to climb high-
er and higher in tempera-
ture. Today is the hottest
day yet. We are supposed
to experience temperatures
in the 90's. When we put on
all of our protective gear,.
for example our body ar-
mor and helmets, the heat
is insulated and increased
'by about 20-30 degrees.
Ironically, the temps dip
into the low 50's at night,
and becomes quite chilly at
times.-
The political climate here
changes as much as the
weather. Our forces are
hindered from performing
our -duties from time to
time by a military la' :
called "Rules of Engage-
ment". These rules are
meant to prevent collateral
damage, and protect inno-


cent civilians, but are often
used against us. We face a
very clever enemy, and
they know just how far
they go before we can act.
This frustrates the River-
ines, but nonetheless, we
are leading the charge in
our operations. We have re-
ceived much praise since
reporting to Iraq, and will
only continue to improve
as time passes.
My son, Beau Brackin cel-
ebrated his second birth-
day on April 10, and my
wife, Ginger will be cele-
brating her. birthday in
July. I would rather be
home for Christmas
though, and my fingers are
crossed as to doing so. I ap-
preciate all the support and
prayers of the good citizens
of Lafayette County, and
hope for a speedy return to
my honme*own. By the way,
my:-dress has changed.

The Shuemake Family

Scrub Hammock was the name of the place where my
great grand daddy had settled after coining to Lafayette
County in 1845. My grand daddy was born there in 1865,.
It is about three miles west of Mayo, consisting of one
thousand and forty acres. The original one hundred-sixty
acres homesteaded by grand father in 1845 is on the part
previously owned by Edward Perry. The home place and
Winburn lake is owned by Harley Lynch and the rest is
owned by the Byrd brothers.
I think my granddaddy said one time that the reason he
moved away from there was those scrub oaks that would
come back no matter how deep down you dug the
root out. After my daddy bought "the
old home place" he began growing







tobacco there and built two pole barns made from cypress
poles cut from around Winburn Lake.
'Growing tobacco took lots of help, from the planting of
the beds right on down to getting it ready for the market.
Around 1929-30 my daddy had the good fortune of meet-
ing Mr. John Shuemake who a few years earlier had come
to Florida from South Carolina with his family of twelve
children and wife Martha.
They entered into a agreement to grow tobacco on
shares at Scrub Hammock and continued in that program.
for several years.
I remember well the Shuemake family. The boys were:
Bill, Johnny, Clarence, Arthur, Luther and David. The girls
were: Maggie, Carlie, Eunice, Maudie, Albeania and Ilene.
These were all hard working, honest folks and they had
a good life at Scrub Hammock and when time allowed
they enjoyed fishing at Winburn Lake and hunting in the
hammock that surrounded the farm.
The elder Mr. Shuemake played the organ and they
owned a fine one that I had the pleasure of hearing on sev-
eral occasions. The whole family would gather around in
the evening and sing those old hymns as Mr. Shuemake
played. I doubt that anyone I have ever heard could pro-

duce a more enjoyable, quality round
of singing and playing.
Once, during an extended dry peri-
od when the farmers were faced with
crop failure, it began to rain one night
in the early evening and my daddy
wanted to take a ride out to see if it
was raining at the farm. When we got
near the house we could hear that or-
gan and the singing and they were
singing songs of

thanksgiving for the Good Lords
blessed rain.
Mrs. Shuemake raised domestic turkeys and they were
allowed to roam the woods around the farm. Some of her
turkeys began to go missing and since there was no evi-
dence that an animal had gotten them, no feathers or any-
thing like that, it was assumed that someone had taken
them. Some of her boys decided to keep an eye out and
see if they could catch who ever it was that might be eating
their mama's tame turkeys.
There was a family that lived down the road a ways, be-
tween the farm and Jody Brumley's place and a couple of
lads there were expert with a sling shot. They would take
the cast iron lid off of an old broken wood range and break
it into the right size pieces and that would make a deadly
projectile for their homemade sling shots.
One boy in particular, Sam, had a reputation of being a
crack shot with that weapon and he reportedly could shoot
his prey in the head most every time which didn't allow
much commotion from the victim.
A little later, Sam was observed in the woods near the
farm house where the turkeys were and he had 'his sling'
shot with him in his hip pocket. The Shuemake boys in-
quired of him of his intentions and he may have had a
good excuse but the desired results were obtained and no
more turkeys were lost in that fashion.
I recently talked with Eunice who married James Frier
who has since passed away. Eunice is the last surviving
member of this fine family and resides in St. Petersburg.
I asked about the organ and the singing and she said that
it was usually a regular, nightly event, after all the chores
were done and time for going to bed was near. Mr. Shue-
make would play and sing along with the rest of the fami-
ly and there were prayers before going to bed.
We talked about her life at the Winburn farm and she
told me that she had returned there about 15 years ago to
see the place where she spent those memorable years, only
to find that nothing remained of the buildings and that all
she saw to connect with those years was the swing that her
brother Bill had put up in an oak tree near the house. It
was a piece of cable and an old automobile tire and it was
still there, the tree limb had grown around the cable over
the years. She told me that all of the boys made it back up
that way in the later years so they could take a last look at
the spot where they spent so many enjoyable years. I was
setting tobacco one spring and I saw someone in the dis-
tance, walking in my direction. As he got closer, I saw
that it was Arthur Shuemake. He had parked out on the
road and walked back to take one last look and reminisce
for a moment. That was in 1963 and the old home place
was still standing.
This family of hard working folks eventually bought
their own farm in Lafayette County near the Riverside
Community shortly after Mrs. Shuemake passed away.
David Shuemake, the youngest son eventually wound up
with the place after his father passed away many years lat-
er.


Lighthouse
For the 2007-2008 school
year the Lighthouse Christ-
ian Academy will have a
dancing team called the
Eaglettes. Try-outs were
held on March 24, and sev-
en girls made the team,
Frances Hilton, Chelsey
Jackson, Bayley Jackson,
Dixie Smith, Emilee
Braswell, Ashley Flowers
& Anna Bonura under the
direction of Cheryl Byrd.
They will perform at vari-
ous functions at the Light-
house Christian Academy
as well as different events
in the community. Good
Luck to all the girls on the
upcoming year and Con-
gratulations!


One particular incident, kinda humorous it seems, was
when one of the boys, Johnnie, had purchased a car. He
.would work at most anything during the off season in or-
der to make a few bucks, chipping boxes in the turpentine
woods, pulling moss and what ever else came along and
he had saved up enough to buy an.automobile. There was
a brand new wagon under the shelter where the equip-
ment was kept out of the weather and he choose that spot
to keep his car so he rolled the wagon out and put his car
there. My daddy saw that new wagon out in the weather
and made an inquiry about it and then John-


nie's car came into view. Johnnie soon
found another location for his car.


These were all hard working folks and during His days
in the turpentine woods, Johnnie had been assigned a
password to sing out so that the foreman could keep a tally
of the boxes scraped by each worker. Johnnies pass word
was "gator" and he could often be heard humming that
while we were busy in the tobacco fields, our heads bent
down under those stalks of tobacco.
Carlie married Bethel Downing and raised a daughter
and two boys, Warren and Clinton. I don't seem to be able
to recall the girls name. A few years ago, Carlie and I had
planned a trip to Georgia to visit Johnnie but it never mate-
rialized Johnny and Carlie have since passed away.
Bethel was the brother of Gene Downing, mentioned in an
earlier article about the radio repair business at the Win-
burmn Hardware store. Later on these young men made a
couple of crops on shares on another farm owned by my
daddy. I talked with Clinton the other day and he lives in
Live Oak after serving 28 years in the military where he
was a helicopter pilot, serving two tours in Viet Nam, hav-
ing been shot down once. Warren was a building contrac-
tor in Atlanta at the time of his early demise at the age of
45.
I believe that Maggie was the oldest girl and she married
Byron Wilder also of Lafayette County. They raised two
children, Bronease (Wilder) .Dampier and Lymon Wilder.
Lymon married 6ne of Dexter Jones daughters, Linda who
is the present Mrs. Donald Hurst. Their daughter Kathy,
the present Mrs. Freddie Edwards, worked at times for me
and my boys at the farm and one day my daddy came by
and she was there and I asked him if he knew who she
was. He studied her for a moment and replied, "Maggie".
I believe that her grandmother must have been a lovely
lady also and that Kathy bore a close resemblance to her.
There's a story here on how I recently came to meet
Bronease I was visiting Antioch Baptist Church in
LaCrosse where some of my family attend church. After
the service had ended, I was sitting there towards the rear
near the door while the crowd made their exit when a
young lady came up and stood in front of me and made
the following comment. My mother asked me to see if you
would wait a few minutes until she could talk to you, she
said you look like someone she once knew in Mayo. Of
course I obliged and soon her mother came back and made
herself known and we had a nice little visit and shared a
few memories.
I have very little knowledge concerning the others after
they left Lafayette County. According to Eunice, Bill
moved to Live Oak, Johnnie stayed in Mayo at Scrub Ham-
mock for a while before going to Adel, Georgia where he
was a woods rider for a large turpentine farm. Arthur
was in Jacksonville and David worked around North Flori-
da for the Independent Life Insurance Co. before retiring to
Central Florida where he was living at the time of his pass-

NFCC students get a taste of 19th century life


How does a college pro-
fessor connect long ago
concepts to modern day
student life? "Bring it to
life!" asserts Dr. Rebecca
Burkart, music director at
North Florida Community
College. Students in
burkart's humanities music
classes have been studying
19th century music and cul-
ture a creatively rich time
in European and U.S. histo-
ry known as the Romantic
period.
Burkart had a unique so-


lution to bridge the gap be-
tween now and then. "I de-
cided to host a typical 19th
C. salon where people
would get together to read
poetry, listen to music,
dance, play games like
"The Minister's Cat" and
"Do You Love Your Neigh-
bor," and enjoy refresh-
ments," said Burkart.
"I always try to encour-
age the students to 'think
about music as related to
the culture in which it is
written," she said.


N


NFCC humanities and reading students (L-R) Joey Crowell, Marie
Pendergrass, Lacey Lundy, Jessica Nixon and Lenora Bryant have

''''".'r. ',

Dr. Rebecca Burkart show's LeKendrick Lee a 19th c.
dance technique.,


fun with 19th c. parlor game.

Students in three sections
of MUH 2011 (humanities
music) participated in the
salon while experiencing a
wide range of entertain-
ment. Janis Courson sang
an aria from Felix
Mendelssohn's oratorio
"Elijah." Later, students
waltzed to Johann Strauss's
"Blue Danube Waltz," a
popular tune of the era.
Getting into the spirit of
the occasion, several stu-
dents dressed in 19th centu-
ry attire while others read
poetry selections, such as
Edgar Allen Poe's
"Annabel Lee" and Robert
Frost's "The Road Not Tak-
en."
NFCC professors also
performed. Burkart,
dressed in a flowing gown
and lace blouse, played
Frederic Chopin's "Noc-


turne in C Minor." Instruc-
tor Rose Nixon gave a pre-
sentation of "The Raven"
by Poe, complete with
props and dramatic ges-
tures typical of the salon at-
mosphere. Dr. Barbara Mc-
Cauley read a poem about
"Demon Rum," a spoof on
the "Light Brigade."
"The salon was a huge
success," said Burkart. "It
was an excellent way for
students to get to know
each other better while get-
ting a taste of another time
and culture."
Burkart's humanities mu-
sic class helps fulfill the
nine hour humanities re-
quirement for an associate
in arts degree.

phone: 85/973-1643 or

tion of one semester and

grades is submitted to the
FPPA office.

mitted to. helping further
the education of young
people in Florida and the

dence of our commitment,"

applicants. The final selec-
tion will be made by the
committee and all appli-
cants will be notified by

ship winners," said Barton.

Nordic Walking involves the use of specially-designed poles to simulate the motion of
cross-country skiing and make for an effective, low-impact workout.
Holding the grip lightly, the hand swings forward from the
shoulder to allow the rubber tip to meet the ground or pavement.
The hands are opened slightly to allow the poles to swing -
forward'- the poles are not gripped, but swing from the wrist
straps.
This exercise is best engaged wearing workout apparel that
supports the joints, ligaments and tendons, like CW-X Conditioning
Wear, which also wicks moisture from the skin, keeping the body
dry and comfortable.
To start experiencing thehealth and fitness benefits of Nordic
Walking, and to learn more about purchasing the right clothing and
equipment, visit www.leki.com and www.cw-x.com. The American
Nordic Walking Association also has handy information at

Seller's tip: Remember to keep pets outl of the way or out of the house, it possible. Some people
are uneasy around animals and they may distract the prospect's attention. Keep your house odor-
free if you have pets or smoke, more than one time a sale has been lost due to pel or smoke odors
in a home.

Buyer's tip: While a FSBO may seem altraclive, sellers do not reduce the price of the home when
they sell themselves, they only want to save commission and usually have the home priced more
than it's worth. Many FSBO sellers will negotiate it you have a Realtor contact them tor you.

Put our hometown knowledge of the Suwannee Valley area to work for you.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
After 35 years I decided it was time to
renovate my basement. The 1970's
look of paneling and orange shaggy
carpet just didn't seem appropriate
anymore. Since one of my neighbors
is a contractor, I asked him if he
would like to do the job. Graciously,
he came over and gave me an esti-
mate. I don't know much about reno-
vations, but I figured he was
trustworthy and reasonably priced. I
was about to hire him when my son
called a few other people who had
advertised in the classified. Wasn't
I surprised when the estimates were
for thousands less than my neigh-
bor? My son seems confident they
could do the job. Now I'm
stuck. My son says not to
hire my neighbor and that
he's just taking advantage
me. What should I do?

Cash: Sooner or later every room in
a house needs remodeling. And from
the sound of it, your basement is long
overdue..
Carry: If you have faith in your
neighbor, then there is nothing wrong
with having him quote the job for you.
However, you do want to be careful
about mixing business with friendship.


Even the simplest of jobs can put stress
on a relationship.
Cash: Your son was wise to get a
few other quotes on the renovation. It's
always a good idea to get at least three
estimates for any project.
Carry: Each contractor who looks at
the job may have a different perspec-
tive and be able to offer you additional
ideas.
Cash: And, as you found out, there
can also be significant differences
when it comes to costs. Now before
you hire anyone, take a good look at the
estimates to make sure that each person
quoted the same job. Maybe your
neighbor included material costs in his


quote or had a different idea of the proj-
ect than your son explained to the other
contractors.
Carry: If there are discrepancies,
have the estimates corrected or modi-
fied so you can compare accurately.
Cash: Then, if your neighbor's esti-
mate still seems too high, you can talk
to him or let your son act as a mediator.
If your son has a better understanding
of renovations, then it may be helpful
to let him deal with the contractors.
Carry: Before you know it, you'll be
sitting in your newly renovated base-
ment wondering what all the worry was
about, minus the orange shaggy carpet
of course.


Banking on Change
To remodel or not to remodel, that is
the question. Up until late 2005, it
seemed everyone was in a home remod-
eling frenzy. With low interest rates and
a booming real estate market, Americans
spent $149.5 billion dollars on renova-
tion projects according to Harvard's -
Joint Center for Housing Studies. That
was up 43% from the previous four
years. However, what goes up must
come down. In 2006, signs of slowing
began to show. Renovation spending
grew a mere 4.5% over the prior year.
Face Lift
Lets face it. We'd all like to remodel,
but it can be costly. Below are the aver-
age costs for common projects and their
return on investment at the time of resale.

Needing a little time away from
home, my wife and I rented a cottage
at a beautiful lake resort. During our
stay, the manager told us about a
charming home that was for sale right
next door to him. "You will love it,"
he said.
A few months later, we bought the
home. As we started to move in, the
resort manager, now our new neigh-
bor. stopped bN to say hello. Again e
talked a bit. but ttus lime he was much
more forthright.
"It's a good thing Wou got this place
cheap," he commented. "The roof
leaks and the furnace needs to be
replaced."
Surprised by his newfound candid-
ness, I asked him, "\\i didn't) ou
mention that before?"
"Well," he paused, "We weren't
neighbors then." (Thanksto Mark H.)

Threat of jail time doesn't keep


drunken drivers off the road


Actor Mel Gibson avoid-
ed jail time after he was
convicted of driving under
the influence in California
last year. Most people who
take to the wheel after
drinking don't think they'll
wind up behind bars either -
or even be caught, as the
"Braveheart" and "Lethal
Weapon" star was, Universi-
ty of Florida researchers
say.
Tougher mandatory mini-
mum jail sentences for dri-
ving under the influence ac-
tually keep few drunken dri-
vers off the road and don't
significantly prevent fatal
car crashes related to drunk-
en driving, according to a
new study published last
week in the online edition of
the journal Accident Analy-
sis and Prevention.
Researchers looked at
changes in laws and policies
regarding mandatory mini-
mum fines and jail sen-
tences for drunken driving
between 1976 and 2002 and
studied rates of DUI arrests
and alcohol-related fatal car
crashes. They wanted to
find out if the stricter regu-
lations deterred people from
drunken driving and if the
number of accidents
dropped in the population as
a whole, said Alexander C.
Wagenaar, Ph.D., a profes-
sor of epidemiology in UF's
College of Medicine and the
study's lead author.
"We found out that's not
the case," Wagenaar said.
"The key thing for a deter-
rence law like this to work
is people have to believe if
they engage in the behavior


that they're actually going
to experience the penalty.
There are many in the gen-
eral public who continue to
drive after drinking because
they don't really believe
that they're going to be de-
tected, pulled over, caught
and go through the process
to be convicted before a jail
term would come into play."
More than 16,000 people
died as a result of alcohol-
related accidents in 2005,
according to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration, and Depart-
ment of Justice records
show that more than 1.4
million people were arrested
for driving under the influ-
ence of drugs or alcohol in
the same year.
The UF study, .which was
funded by the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation, shows
that tougher fines had a
slight effect on drunken dri-
ving rates in some states,
but there wasn't a consistent
pattern. For example, states
with tougher fines didn't al-
ways have a greater de-
crease in DUI arrests, Wage-
naar said.
Of the 48 states re-
searchers studied, 18 estab-
lished mandatory minimum
jail terms and 26 instituted
mandatory minimum fines.
Of the states that estab-
lished minimum jail sen-
tences for first-time offend-
ers, five actually showed a
significant decrease in fatal
car accidents after the
changes were made, the
study shows. But two of
those states established oth-
er DUI policies at the time,


so it's unknown whether jail
time was actually a factor,
Wagenaar said.
The researchers also com-
pared the effects of new
tougher laws on drivers in-
volved in car accidents who
were impaired at varying
levels after 1982, when of-
ficials began testing blood-
alcohol concentration lev-
els. They separated the dri-
vers into three groups:
those whose blood-alcohol
levels fell between .01 and
.07, between .08 and .14,
and .15 and beyond. The le-
gal blood-alcohol limit in
most states is .08. But the
changing laws didn't seem
to have more effect on any
particular group, Wagenaar
said.
"People agree that drink-
ing and driving is unaccept-
able," said James C. Fell,
director of traffic safety and
enforcement programs for
the Pacific Institute for Re-
search and Evaluation in
Maryland. "But they do it
because they don't get
caught. On average statis-
tics show that a person dri-
ves under the influence 50
to 200 times before they get
caught or crash."
Aside from the fact that
most people don't think
they'll get caught, Wagenaar
said post-conviction penal-
ties such as fines -and jail
time don't happen fast
enough for the consequence
to be associated with the be-
havior in most people's
minds. Generally, it takes
.six months to one year be-
fore a person convicted of
DUI goes through the courts


., I.




Alexander C. Wagenaar, Ph.D.
and has to pay a fine or go
to jail, Wagenaar said.
"We know from psycho-
logical research and re-
search in other areas that for
a consequence to influence
behavior, that consequence
needs to happen close to the
behavior," he said. "It's the
same thing we do when
we're disciplining our chil-
dren."
More enforcement, such
as weekly checkpoints, is
needed to make anti-drunk-
en driving laws more effec-
tive, Fell said.
Although mandatory jail
sentences don't deter drunk-
en drivers, Wagenaar said
these findings shouldn't be
misconstrued that jail time
isn't useful as a punishment.
"It's clearly appropriate
for someone who has been
convicted two or three times
who is not changing their
behavior," Wagenaar said.
"We get ultimately to a
point where we have to take
measures because they're
such a threat to society."

Lt. Gov. Kottkamp announces Ready to Work Credential Program


Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp re-
!cently announced Florida's
.Ready to Work Program,
which creates a job skill as-
sessment-based training and
credential program for stu-
dents and adult learners. The
program is administered by
the Florida Department of
Education and the Agency
for Workforce Innovation.
Following a competitive
process, a contract was
awarded to Worldwide Inter-
active Network (WIN) to
provide the program's in-
structional components and
assessments.
"Florida must continue to
cultivate a well-prepared
workforce to respond to the
needs of our state's growing
business community," said
Lt. Gov. Kottkamp. "This
program will enable students
of all ages to earn a creden-
tial that tells prospective
employers they are equipped
with the skills needed to en-
ter the workforce and hit the
ground running."
Free-of-charge and com-,
pletely voluntary, the Ready
to Work Program provides
participants with an opportu-


nity to earn a credential that
demonstrates his or her abil-
ity to eiter the workforce
with the skills necessary for
success. The program begins
with a pre-instructional as-
sessment to determine an ap-
plicant's mastery of basic
workforce skills. Applicants
meeting the designated mas-
tery levels will earn the.
Ready to Work credential.
Those in need of additional
preparation will enroll in
self-paced, tutorial course-
work for the areas in which
they were not proficient, fol-
lowed by a post-instruction-
al assessment. A certificate
is issued upon successful
completion of all
WorkKeys assessments.
"I believe that the Ready
to Work Program will prove
to be the most significant
workforce development ini-
tiative in the state's history
because it focuses on real-
world issues of both students
and employers with respect
to workforce readiness and
training," said Representa-
tive Joe Pickens.
The Ready to Work Cre-
dential Program consists of


the nationally recognized
ACT WorkKeys system,
which measures cognitive
abilities such as applied
mathematics, reading for in-
formation, and locating in-
formation. Assessments
measuring these abilities
may be either paper-and-
pencil or web-based, and
take about an hour each to
complete. Each assessment
is scored on a scale from
three to seven.
To earn Florida's Ready .to
Work Credential, applicants
must score -a three or above
on all. three of the
WorkKeys assessments.
Applicants can earn the
Ready to Work Credential at
one of three levels: Bronze
(minimum score of three or
above on all three assess-
ments), Silver (minimum
score of four or above on all
three assessments) or Gold
(minimum, score of five or
above. on all three assess-
ments).
"This program brings to-
gether the entire spectrum of
the education community
from K-12 public education
to community colleges to ca-


reer-technical education
centers to help Florida job
seekers-whether they are
looking for their first job or
a new job-obtain the skills
employers are looking for in
an employee," said Florida
Department of Education
Commissioner Jeanine
Blomberg.
In addition to the three
WorkKeys assessments,
Florida's Ready to Work
Credential will by 'this fall
include a work-readiness
component, which measures
applicants' personal quali-
ties (dependability, as-
sertiveness, self-manage-
ment, honesty/integrity) and.
interpersonal skills (commu-
nications, customer service,
teamwork and leadership
skills).,
"Through the Ready to
Work program, we are work-
ing to ensure that people
throughout the state are truly
'ready to work'," said Flori-
da Agency for Workforce In-
novation Director Monesia
Brown. "We view education
and workforce skills devel-
opment at all levels as an in-
vestment in the future of


Florida's economy, and we
could not be more thrilled
with our partnership with
DOE or the support we have
received from Gov. Crist and
Lt. Gov. Kottkamp."
The program will be avail-
able at participating public
schools, community col-
leges, area technical centers,
one-stop career centers, vo-
cational rehabilitation cen-
ters, Department of Juvenile
Justice programs and region-
al education consortia. Cur-
rently, there are 20 sites
throughout the state where
applicants can take the
WorkKeys assessments.
Nearly 10,000 Floridians
who have already taken the
WorkKeys assessments
and achieved scores of three
or above on each assessment
will be "grandfathered" into
the Ready to Work Creden-
tial Program, and will re-,
ceive a certificate of com-
pletion this month.
"Manufacturers have thou-
sands of jobs open in Florida
at all levels. We desperately
need workers who -can
