First judging held in cooking contest


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net

During a quiet evening ac-
companied by soft music and
gentle falling rain, five mem-
bers of the community gath-
ered together at Le Chateau to
participate as judges in the first
"hunt for a star recipe" contest
on Tuesday, July 24. The invit-
ed participants were Judge
Darren Jackson and his wife
Heather, Elvoy Land and his
wife Betty, and Ira Mikell, Free
Press reporter.
The event, created by
Sheree Daly, chef and coordi-
nator of Golden Pear, is intend-
ed to be a social activity that
brings the community together,
similar to Pioneer Day and


(L-R): Elvoy Land, Betty Land, Ira Mikell, Heather Jackson, and Judge Darren Jackson.


Take part in preserving our judicial history


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net

In the Harlow H. Land Jr. court-
room inside the Lafayette County
courthouse, hangs a display of a
few distinguished individuals
who served Lafayette County as
judges through the years. This
perpetual memorial was installed


during Judge Land's retirement
ceremony in December of 2006.
Patty Harris, who served 17
years as judicial assistant for
Judge Land and is currently serv-
ing in that same capacity for
Judge Darren Jackson, is seeking
help from the community to add
more photos to the display. She
also stated she hopes members of
the community will be encour-


aged to drop by the courthouse
and see the display that honors a
part of the rich history of this
county.
If you have a photo of a past
judge of this county, other than
those presently on display, and
would like to share it or if you
would like additional information
about the display, contact Harris
at 294-1555.


Wild Beast Feast. In addi-
tion, she hopes the contest
will encourage Lafayette
County residents to show
off their cooking skills by
entering their own recipe
creations in three cate-
gories: appetizer/salad,
entree, and dessert.
After Daly brought in
each item, assisted by
Donna Land, current own-
er of Le Chateau, the
judges poured over each
delicacy, savoring every
mouthful. It was the gen-
eral consensus of the five
judges that all the foods
submitted were very deli-
cious and had the poten-
tial as menu items, but in
the end only one item in
each category stood out as
the best.
The winners of this first
round were Joe Shinholser
and Cindy Pilkington,
both of Mayo. Shinholser
submitted a stuffed mush-
rooms appetizer and Pork
for the entree. Pilkington


entered her Chocolate Ital-
ian Cream cake for the
dessert category.
Daly was thrilled about
how well this contest is
going and is planning to
make it into a monthly
event.
The next phase of this
Year's contest takes place
on August 28. The dead-
line for submissions is Au-
gust 25. "You may enter
only one recipe per catego-
ry and we will present the
winner in each category
with a certificate for a
night for two at Le
Chateau Bed and Break-
fast. To enter, mail your
name, phone number, and
category to: Hunt for a
Star at P.O. Box 1, Mayo,
FL 32066. Or, you may en-
ter in person at the Golden
Pear, Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m. to 2
p.m.," Daly said.
For additional informa-
tion about the event, con-
tact Daly at 294-2332.

Taylor Energy Center temporarily s'lspelids permitting pruness


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alItel.net

In an effort to make sure all is-
sues are being adequately ad-
dressed on both sides of the 800
megawatt coal plant issue, Taylor
Energy Center chose to temporari-
ly suspend the permitting process
in order to address another issue.
"We decided to suspend permit-
ting activities to work with state


leaders on an energy plan for Flori-
da that addresses growing con-
cerns about climate change," TEC
Project Manager Mike Lawson
said.
This decision, according to TEC
Spokesperson Mark McCain, took
effect on July 3'. Despite the set-
back, TEC still intends to build the
coal plant that promises to produce
additional jobs and materials for
the local, as well as, surrounding
economies. "Our mission is to pro-

Difference


between


Heaven & Hell


A holy man was having
a conversation with the
Lord one day and said,
Lord, I would like to know
what Heaven and Hell are
like."
The Lord led the holy
man to two doors. He
opened one of the doors
and the holy man looked
in. In the middle of 'the
room was a large round
table.
In the middle of the table
was a large poto.f stew
which 'smelled delicious
and made the holy man's
mouth water.
The people sitting
around the table were thin
and sickly. They appeared
to be famished. They were
holding spoons with very
long handles that were
strapped to their arms and
each found it possible to
reach into the pot of stew
and take a spoonful, but
because the handle was
longer than their arms,
they qould not get the
spoons back into their
mouths.


The holy man shuddered
at the sight of their misery
and suffering'.
The Lord, said, "You
have seen Hell."
They went to the next
room and opened the
door. It was exactly the
same as the first one. There
was the large round table
with the large pot of stew
which made the holy
man's mouth water. The
people were equipped
with the same long-han-
dled spoons, but. here the.
people were well nour-
ished and plump, laughing
and talking.
The holy man said, "I
don't understand."
It is simple"' said the
Lord, "it requires but one
skill. You see, they have
learned to feed each other,
while the greedy think
only of themselves."
When Jesus died on the
cross he was thinking of
you! Only 7 percent of the
people who read this will
share it with others. 93
percent of people won't.

Nursing students at
North Florida Community
College count on technolo-
gy to help teach patient care
in all kinds of situations.
Recently, second year nurs-
ing students, Connie Walk-
er and Tracy Gniewek,
demonstrated how NFCC
uses high-tech patient sim-
ulators in nursing instruc-
tion. The demo was staged
especially for members of
the NFCC Allied Health
Advisory Committee and
Florida State Hospital nurs-
ing staff.
NFCC nursing instructor,
Miki Richardson, set the
stage by creating a crisis in
the patient simulator with
the touch of a few computer
keys. Students, Walker and
Gniewek, demonstrated
how they would respond if

Lord Jesus? You can't be
neutral. If you're not for
Him, you're against Him.
If you don't receive Him,
you reject Him.
The Bible says, "As
many as received Him, to
them gave He the right to
become. the children of'
God."
Until you open the door
of your heart to Him,
you're keeping it closed.
Until you say "Yes" to
Him, you're saying "No."

RYLA Conference


Children's VISION problems can be


treated successfully if detected early


Each year sophomore students from
Pensacola to Lake City attend the Rotary
Youth Leadership Awards conference.
For the second year Lafayette County sent
a representative to Wallwood Boy Scout
Reservation, to participate in the leader-
ship conference. Alma Huerta was the re-
cipient from Lafayette County.this year
who attended the conference of about 70
Sophomores.
The RYLA conference is a leadership
conference where the students are able to
engage in physical and mental activities,
that challenge and improve their leader-
ship skills. One of the main activities is
the High Ropes Challenge Course.
This course is designed to test the stu-
dents as they complete an obstacle course
that is sixty feet in the air. The seventy


Linda Smith
R.O. Ranch Equestrian
Park located in Lafayette
County has been a news
topic often in the past
months. Once again the
huge project was the topic
of discussion at the week-
ly Rotary meeting on July
15.
Brian Kauffman,
Suwannee River Water
Management District, was
quite excited about shar-
ing of the acquisition of
the ranch which consists
of 2,500 acres. Thanks to
Frank "Red' and Olive
Schulte, who wanted to
share their environment
and mules, with the pub-
lic, and SRWMD, the R.O.
Ranch, Inc. is no longer
just a dream of the
Schulte's but a reality.
When SRWMD estab-
lished R.O. Ranch, Inc,
the couple gave a $3.5
million endowment to
help fund the ranch's op-
erations. The Crossway
Branch Trailhead opened
in April 2007 with three
trails over 14 miles, avail-
able for day-use riders.
Ron Clayton serves as
the ranch manager. Clay-
ton comes to North Flori-


students are divided into two continents,
with five countries in each continent. Each
team consists of about seven students, an
adult leader, and one alumni member.
The alumni members are chosen from
the previous RYLA conference partici-
pants. Only ten students are selected to
return as Alumni. For the first time,
Lafayette County had a student chosen to
return as an Alumni. Kevin Waters who
attended RYLA 2006 was selected from
seventy students and represented
Lafayette County as an alumni at RYLA
2007.
The Alumni are selected to help encour-
age their group and serve as a leader to
the entire RYLA conference. Both Kevin
and Alma enjoyed their experience, and
represented Lafayette County well!


da from northern Ari-
zona, Where he was trail
boss for the famous mule
rides into the Grand
Canyon.
Kauffman shared with
Rotarians some of the
hopes and dreams for the
park. He said that the
park will provide a living
history for Lafayette
County. According to
Kauffman, the theme for
the entire park will be the
1920's "cracker" style. The
gift shop, museum, cab-
ins, etc. will all be in the
1920's "cracker" style.
He also mentioned pre-
serving such things as
free roaming woods cat-
tle. Plans are to maintain
a small herd of registered
Florida Cracker cattle in
their native habitat for
visitors to see. They will
also maintain pairs of
draft mules to show visi-
tors how they were used
by early Lafayette County
settlers.
Other positive effects of
Sthe ranch, according to
Kauffman, it will be a
great destination for
Florida's fourth graders to
take a field trip to learn
about Florida history in


preparation for the FCAT
test. The park will also
have fairground-type fa-
cilities.
All sales at the park are
subject to county and
state sales tax. Therefore,
county revenue will in-
crease through sales tax.
Also businesses now in
existence as well as new
ones that may open, will
benefit from visitors com-
ing to the ranch, items
such as gas, diesel fuel,
food and lodging are es-
sentials that folks will be
purchasing in the county.
Last but not least, the
park will be an active
participant in the Mayo
Pioneer Day celebration
including hosting of an

annual Pioneer Day
rodeo. But, according to
Kauffman, that will not
be in the works for this
year, but hopefully by
next year.
Kauffman said the park
will have much to offer,
not only can equestrians
ride and compete in
shows but the camp-
ground will be used by
people fishing and scal-
loping during the hot.
summer off-seasqn.

Prevent Blindness

America asks for

public's help in passing

sight-saving legislation

Because two out of three children in the
United States do not receive critical eye
care services before the age of six, many
children are at risk of suffering vision
loss. Without a certified vision screening
or eye exam, a child may have serious un-
detected vision problems. Since so much
of learning is processed visually, eye dis-
orders can have a tremendous effect on a
child's performance in the classroom.
Prevent Blindness America has declared
August as Children's Eye Health and
Safety Month in an effort to educate the
public on the importance of quality eye
care. Some potentially blinding eye dis-
eases and conditions can be detected early
in life. Prevent Blindness America recom-
mends children have their vision checked
at infancy, 6 months, 3 years and 5 years,
w4th follow-ups as needed.
In an attempt to bridge the gap for ac-
cess to proper eye care, Prevent Blindness
America helped to develop the "Vision
Care for Kids Act of 2007." The legisla-
tion would provide funding for eye ex-
ams and follow-up care for qualified chil-
dren. Bills were introduced at the federal
level in both the House of Representatives
and the Senate earlier this year. Prevent
Blindness America and other leading vi-
sion health groups are hoping to have the
legislation passed within the coming
weeks.
S "We already know that one in twenty
preschool children have a vision problem.
What we need to do now is to develop
programs to provide children in need
with the professional eye care they de-
serve," said Daniel D. Garrett, senior vice
president of Prevent Blindness America.
"We ask everyone to contact their repre-
sentatives and urge their support for vi-
sion services."
Eye problems can range from common
refractive errors such as nearsightedness
and farsightedness, to serious eye disease.

ceives diminished images from the affect-
ed eye, it begins to suppress those images
and favor the unaffected eye. If this con-
dition persists, the weaker eye may be-
come useless. Amblyopia becomes more
difficult to treat effectively as the child be-
comes older.
Strabismus or "crossed eyes" condi-
tion where eyes are misaligned, or do not
line up with each other. This problem is
caused when the muscles do not work to-
gether. Strabismus may eventually lead
to amblyopia. Approximately one in 50
children has strabismus.
Congenital Cataract a clouding of the
eye's lens which blocks light needed for
sight. Some cataracts are present at birth
or can develop during the first few
months or years of life. In many cases,
the cause is unknown. In older children,
cataracts are often related to eye injuries.
Depending on the severity of the cataract,
surgery may be required. Approximately
0.4 percent of all children are born with
cataracts in one or both eyes.
Congenital Glaucoma a group-of dis-
eases that diminishes peripheral vision.
Children born with the disease may have
symptoms such as cloudy eyes, sensitivity
to light and excessive tearing. Most cases
of congenital glaucoma require surgery.
According to the International Glaucoma
Association, it is present in one in 10,000
births.

"The

Elmore

family

at Scrub :

Hammock"
Having mentioned Steve Santerfeit it seems fitting to
mention that he married one of Henry Elmore's children,
Ella Mae and that the Elmore family had operated one
of the farms at Scrub Hammock. I don't know when







this family arrived at Scrub Hammock but they stayed
there for a number of years and Mr. Elmore retired to
Mayo and bought the property down near the Santerfeits
and that is where Ella Mae. and Steve got to be friends
and later were married and raised a family. I lived not
too far from the Santerfeits and was a frequent visitor
around there as I was friends with some of the grand-
children who would come to visit.
I often observed Steve who I mentioned had been in-
jured and lost the use of one of his arms. This was dur-
ing a time when mechanization had not arrived in the
timber industry and trees were still being felled and cut
with a cross cut saw. I don't suppose many folks have
been around when such a procedure was going on but
those saws would gum up with pine sap and a bottle of
kerosene was on hand where it would be generously ap-
plied to the saw to keep it from binding. And of course
the.saws had to be sharp and that is where Steve fit in,
filing those saws for folks as it was a laborious and time
consuming task. Folks would drop off their saws and
Steve would place them in a sort of jig that he had erect-
ed and he would sit there and work that good arm as he
filed those saws. You can't help but admire a man like
that. Quite a lesson in determination I would say.
I will say a few more words about the wood sawing,
our young folks should know a little more about how
things were back then. Wood was the main source of fuel
for a long time, petroleum products didn't become a
common product for our use until way up into the 20th
century. Wood burning fireplaces warmed our homes
and wood burning stoves cooked our food. The wood
stove made the kitchen nice and cozy on a cold day and
was the first place of refuge by this youngster on those
cold mornings when I would run and stand behind the
wood stove as I pulled on my clothes. That wood.storve


would be fired up quite early, usually by my daddy who
would be the first one up and he would start the fires in
the fireplaces also.
Stove wood as we called it has a story worth telling. It
began in the forest, or woods where the pine trees were
growing and a sapling of the right dimensions would be
felled by bedding it'with an ax and finishing the cut with
a cross cut saw where it would be measured into the
right lengths and cut up by two men pulling that saw.
Two men experienced in using the saws could make the
chips fly and cutting those 15'inch pieces went right
along. An inexperienced hand that didn't have the
rhythm of pulling that saw would sometimes push on
his end and that usually caused the consternation of his


sawing partner as it was counter
productive so to speak. At my house, those blocks were
unloaded out back past the smoke house where my dad-
dy would split them up into smaller pieces and I would
pin them or stack them so as to allow them to dry. That
is the way wood was prepared for the stove and that dry
pine provided the right fuel for the stove.
Our stove had a hot water jacket inside the fire box
and we had hot water. The little tank stood behind the
stove and you could feel it to see how much hot water
was available. If.a bath was in the offing, feeling that
tank became an important function.
Later on Steve and Ella Mae both worked at the Mayo
Theater after Harlow Land had become the owner. Steve
would run the projector and Ella Mae would sell the
tickets, a little later on, Harlow's beautiful young sister,
Mevelyn would assume the duties of selling tickets and
making the popcorn. She was able to do this while at-
tending school and that seemed to me to be no small
task. Folks, this was a thriving business and all the latest
and most popular movies were shown there and even
though it was not air conditioned it was kept at a pleas-
ant temperature by a large exhaust fan placed at the
back. The previous owner, Ed Winburn who had pur-
chased it from that mister Jirpmy what's his name, Irvin I
believe, had moved on and was operating theaters in
Gainesville and Jacksonville. The one in Gainesville was
the Gainesville Drive In out in the edge of town on
North US 441 and the one in Jacksonville was the Five
Points Theater in an area by that name just off Park
Street. Mr. Winburn's wife had been the ticket seller in
Mayo and the son was busy doing things around there
too. Albert James had a record player and he put some
speakers in the projection room window up stairs facing
the street and it was no secret that the theater was in op-
eration in the evenings as those old cowboy tunes rever-
berated throughout the community.
There was no concession stand at the theater but there
was a popcorn machine and it was a delicious treat. It
made you thirsty though and'that meant a trip across the


street to the closest water spigot which was at Al Mor-
gan's Waco Pep Station and the water was not cool at all,
having been under that hot pavement all day. During the
summer on Saturdays they would set up a snow cone
stand outside on the sidewalk and that was a popular
place and there were many flavors to choose from for 5
cents each. The ice was obtained by scraping a block of
ice with a hand scraper and I had that job at one time
and made a handsome salary of one dollar for about six
hours work but I stayed cool and did not get thirsty. I
believe Albert Land had been the projection operator for
a good while before Steve took it over.
According to Ella Mae during a recent visit, the elder
Mr. Santerfeit had purchased the property from "Shorty"
Strickland who was a gent with a wooden leg. I
believe that Mr. Strickland was a Confederate
Army Veteran and had lost that leg in battle








or as was the usual case, he was injured and the leg was
sawed off to save him from the infection that was sure to
follow being that notion was known at that time about
how those infections were started and sanitary proce-
dures were not used in treating the wounded. Mr. Strick-
land remained on in a small building on the back of the
property......

Kids will make good
choices, taking fruits and
vegetables over less nutri-
tious foods, when given a
chance. Encourage healthy
eating by creating a sup-
portive environment,
where parents and other
caregivers model healthy
eating. Involving children
in shopping, cooking fam-
ily meals and even gar-
dening are other impor-
tant steps in getting kids
interested in fruits and
vegetables.
Shopping
Toddlers
When at the store, talk
about the names, shapes,
colors, and sizes of fruits
and vegetables.
Preschool
Have them help put
items in bags.
Count the items as they
are put in the bag.
Spell the names of fruits
and vegetables.
Grade school
Talk about how fruits
and vegetables are grown
and where they are
grown.
Talk about fruits and
vegetables eaten in other
cultures, and try new
ones.
Cooking
All ages can learn the
importance of good hand
washing and sanitation
techniques. Use "kid-size"
tools" if the counter is too
high, use a sturdy step
stool or have children sit
at the kitchen table.

Southern Pine Beetle prevention Cost-Share


program
The Florida Department of Agriculture,
Division of Forestry will be accepting new
applications for the Southern Pine Beetle
Prevention Cost-Share Program which be-
gan July 30, 2007.
The southern pine beetle, or.SPB, is a
native, periodically destructive insect pest
of pines in the southeastern United States.
Like other pine bark beetle attacks, SPB
attacks are' typically limited to pines that
are dying or weakened due to environ-
mental conditions, however, SPB popula-
tions have the potential to build rapidly
and kill large numbers of pines, and may
overcome the defenses of healthy trees
during periodic outbreaks.
The primary objective of the SPB Pre-
vention Cost-Share Program is to prevent
SPB damage and outbreaks in Florida by
helping non-industrial private forest

Loving pets from county animal shelter


Submitted

This week we find our-
selves overflowing with small
animals, specifically cats and
kittens, and cats with their lit-
ters of kittens. And the num-
ber of puppies is still unusual-
ly-high. In this week's column
we are focusing on a couple of
the bigger dogs who are so
ready for a good home, and a
trio of very small male dogs,
fully grown, who need a good
"iore% er" home.
'Folks, there is no way we
iAn emphasize enough the
need to have your pet spayed
or neutered. Thanks to the
grant we received from PetS-
mart, all the animals adopted


through this shelter will be
spayed or neutered. Once you
pick out the pet for you and
your family, we will make the
arrangements for whichever
procedure is needed, have the
animal taken to the vet, and
you pick it up once the vet
says he or she is ready.
In the next couple of weeks
I'm going to be featuring the
animal control officers who
service Suwannee County.
They are Janis Hunter and Joe
Brown.
The citizens of Suwannee
County are so blessed in the
caring character and dedica-
tion of these two officers and

workings of the shelter office,
to the strays of this county. I
know, from first-hand experi-
ence working in the office as a
volunteer, that there are many
days when it's frustrating to
see the number of stray ani-
mals that Janis and Joe have to
bring in, knowing many of
them will have to be "put
down" because they have
medical problems and dis-
eases we cannot take care of.
Equally sad and frustrating
is to see the abuse and neglect
so many of these strays suffer,
mostly because they have
been "thrown away" and have
had to suffer because previous
owners no longer wanted to.

their owners have died or
been put in nursing homes and
nobody wants to take care of
them.
It is important that you, the
public, know what this shelter
does on a daily basis. It is im-
portant that you know that
there are laws in this county
concerning your animals, and
what you are responsible for.
In the coming weeks I will be
focusing on' the staff of the
shelter, the purpose of the
shelter. many of the pets who


have become "residents" of
the shelter, and of the success
stories of so many of those
strays who have come to us.
I will continue to ask for
volunteers each week. There
is so much work to be done
for the shelter, and every little
effort you, the citizens of this
county, do will make such a
big difference. Please come
by the shelter and see the
many animals just waiting to
be your pet. Don't forget to
ask about some of the small


animals that are in our foster
program if you don't see what
you are looking for. And we
are always grateful for any
donations you make to our
shelter.
We are located south of
Live Oak off US 129 on 144th
Street, the same road as the
county landfill. Look for our
sign right next to that of the
county landfill. Hope to see
you there soon.

We Take Your



l Health to Heart ,






Show You Care During Difficult Times


j-
. .H-


A serious or life-changing health care issue will touch everyone's life
eventually. A sibling is diagnosed with cancer. A colleague's baby is born too
soon. A neighbor suffers a heart attack. An accident severely injures a niece.
Family, friends and neighbors want to help, but even the best of intentions can
be waylaid when you don't know what to do or fear being too intrusive.
"In the midst of a health care crisis, people live in a slow-motion world filled
with fear, uncertainty and critical health care decisions. They simply can't
focus on or may even forget about day-to-day activities," said Dr. Jesse
Gruman, president of the Center for the Advancement of Health. "The burdens
they're facing cause action paralysis. Friends and family can best help by just
doing whatever they see that needs doing. That will dramatically reduce stress
for a hurting family."
Many normal daily activities get set,aside during days and weeks consumed
with medical tests, doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy or chemotherapy.
Here are five specific ways to help until life resumes some sense of normalcy.

1. Pick Something Specific Starting at Home
Try not to ask the general question, "How can I help?" Instead, take
responsibility for a specific task and tell the family when it will be completed.
Even asking, "Could I mow your lawn?" may result in a gentle brush-off for
fear of imposition. Telling the person, "I'm going to mow your lawn every
Thursday" breaks down reservations.
If your neighbor is away at the hospital day and night, get their newspapers,
mail or deliveries. Water their flowers and plants.Turn the lights on and off to
provide added security.
The mail, laundry and dust are bound to pile up when there's limited time at
home. Offer to clean the house, fold laundry or hire a cleaning person for the
tasks.

2. Simplify Communication
Keeping people informed of an individual's medical condition and progress
also can be a major, and often hidden, stressor.
"It is emotionally draining and physically exhausting for family members of
a patient to repeat details of the treatment progress or latest test results with 10
people every day,"'said Sona Mehring of CaringBridge. "It can be
overwhelming and takes time away from their loved one the person who
really needs their attention." CaringBridge is a nonprofit service providing
free, private and personalized Web sites that serve as communication and
support hubs during health care crises.
If you're close to the affected family or person, offer to create a
CaringBridge Web site for them (www.caringbridge.org). It takes two minutes
and is easily updated, keeping all those concerned regardless of their
location apprised of any developments. The site allows an author to post
background on the individual's condition and diagnosis, provide updates with
regular journal entries, post photos, and link to other sites for medical
information. Sites also provide a guestbook for visitors to post personal notes,
prayers and poems. And whenever a journal update is made to the individual's
site, registered visitors receive an e-mail alert.

3. Help With Meals
Provide ready-to-cook meals, frozen and portioned according to the family's
size. And be creative families are too often overwhelmed with large pasta
dishes. Make-and-bake meal preparation stores are extremely convenient if
you don't want to cook.
Gift cards to fast-food or casual dining restaurants always come in handy.
For family members who remain at home, go grocery shopping. Put the
groceries away, and leave a note with meal suggestions for the week.

4. Take Care Of The Rest Of The Family


Ci
I,,


---


For those who are touched with a health care crisis, you can
take many steps to help through this difficult time, such as
cooking or cleaning
Maintaining a typical daily routine is unrealistic in the midst of a health care
crisis. Kids, however, still need to go to school or get to after-school activities.
Offer to provide rides for the kids or dinner for them before their evening
activities.
Giving kids an outlet for fun can help relieve stress and worry. Invite them to
a sporting event, the zoo or a movie with your children. Again, specifically
say, "We're picking up Brian at 6:45 for the football game, and we'll be home
at 10." This gives parents kid-free time to decompress, run errands or catch up
on much-needed sleep.
And don't forget about the four-legged family members. Offer to walk or
feed the dog at a specific time each day and follow through.

5. Don't Do It Alone
When a crisis strikes, many people truly want to help. Groups can pool their
energy and resources to help spread the responsibilities among many people to
provide help for an extended period of time.
Supporting family, friends and neighbors through a time of medical crisis,
uncertainty or prolonged illness can be incredibly fulfilling, and your efforts
will be a welcome relief during long days.

BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE


By Pam Campbell
Living here in America, I often wonder if we really have any idea
how blessed we actually are. Many times things happen ih all of our
lives where things go wrong, and those are the times that we need to
focus even more on the blessings that God has bestowed upon us. The
Bible talks about God's blessings. Deuteronomy 28:1: "And it shall
come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto ihe voice of the LORD thy God, to ob-
serve and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD
thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall
come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy
God. 3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 4 Blessed
shall be the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the
increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy
store 6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and Messed shalt thou be when thou
gest out."
SWhen I go to bed at night, if I go to bed hungry, more than likely it is of my own
choosing. If I am hungry I can find something to eat. Think about it, do you have to go to
bed hungry? Most of us here in America are blessed with food to eat and a bed to go to
bed in. One thing that I have noticed this summer is all the times that people say things
that they don't really mean. You know, things like I am starving to death, or I'm about
to die of starvation." I know you don't mean to say it and neither do 1, it is just some,
thing that a lot of people saywhen t ht .are hult.
gry This summer while in Honduras n\ hii,.
band met some people that had eating .11 one 1 ,
the few resorts on this island. The did iIi tit .all
of their food on their plates and w ihefi c die tre
getting up to leave they were asked b si wili oher l
people from Roatan, if itwas okay ii tht\ finsllied
what.the Americans had not eaten Ob'ioush, ithe S,
answer was yes, they did not want the re t of thetr
meal and it would otherwise be thrown .\,.h C.in
you imagine being so hungry that )uu \mould st .
down and eat the food that was left on a cnirmpkt e .J0
stranger's plate? Now there are man% people in '
this world around us that truly are stLrMing .ad .
many of them die. In some places o0 e.las ngl .i
noW, thousands die daily for lack of fooi1 idd \u.i
ter We all need to be more careful oif die dlliae
that we say We may bring on oursel ts sointhingii .
that we do not desire, by speaking i m uc h .iys .
We certainly don't want to end up in .1 placr \ here :,
e reallyistarve to death. The Bible ys)s dh.l ahe n
you speak that your words may come to pass, be
sure to speak life. Proverbs 18:21: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and
they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof,"
Many times we don't realize that we have so many blessings around us and we take
for granted much that God has given to us. We haefamilies; friends, homes,' food, cloth-
ing, many of us own automobiles, toys of all sorts, televisions, boats, and so much more.
We are free to go to work, we can go to school, we can worship the Lord at whatever
church we choose, we can take a vacation, go on a picnic, play with our pets, go shop-
ping, play sports, go visiting, the list can go on and on. Yes we are very blessed, blessed
beyond measure.
SThis spring and summer, my family and I have been very blessed to travel to various
places in the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico. While traveling to other countries
we see many different types of poverty and wealth. In the Caribbean we have found coun-
* tries where the people live much as we do here in America, where there is not as much
poverty. Then you will find countries where you will find the very wealthy with a mansion
.and look across the road and find someone living in severe poverty In these countries
most of the wealthy are actually from America. We have visited a few countries were we
really did not see poverty, but for the most part poverty is everywhere. When we are in
the Central American countries we find more poverty than one can imagine. Countries
like Belize, Costa Rica, and Panama have people with so many needs. I could write so
much about each, but now I want to share with you about Roatan, Honduras. This is one
of the Bay Islands off the coast of mainland Honduras. Roatan has a huge number of or-
phans, children with no families to love and care for them, many of which have come
from the most horrible circumstances, such as watching their father murder their moth-
er, or being locked in a cage. These things unfortunately are not uncommon, but God
has sent some wonderful people from America to bring about change. They are working
diligently with a.wonderfuf orphanage there where all of the children are treated as part
of one big happy family. It is more like a real home than an orphanage. They are also
working throughout this poverty-stricken island with many outreach programs, helping
other orphanages,.reaching out and meeting the needs of many other children, youth
add families with food, clothes, school supplies, meeting many other needs and best of

all sharing the Gospel. This is not an easy job, as most of their food, clothes, Bibles and
everything else comes by way of others coming to Roatan on a cruise. The cost they have
to pay in fees to receive packages in the mail far exceeds the value of the package. There
are no "real" stores on Roatan, just several very small open grocery stores with very little
on their shelves. Milk, if it is available, is usually already sour and beginning to curdle. It
costs over $10 a gallon. Obviously, the orphanage and most of the people on the island
do not purchase it. They rely on powdered milk if someone brings it to them. They are
so grateful if someone thinks to bring chocolate or strawberry powder to make the pow-
dered milk taste better! Now this country is a place where you can go and share a bag of
candy and you would have thought that you had given them gold. Imagine, you are leav-
ing, you.stop to give a child a small little Ziploc bag of tiny toys, candy, balloons, and
maybe crayons and a coloring book Within minutes there are maybe ten children
around you, you reach in your bag, you see that you have only four bags left and you
look at the hope in their faces as they look at you. You open the bags you have left, you
start dividing everything, all that you have, including the snacks that your family had
with, you start giving it out until every child has something. You tell them goodbye, you
walk on wishing you had more to give, wishing you did not have to leave, you cry, you
don't want to leave. It never seems like enough, you want to do more. You think about
home, and you really realize how much God has blessed you.'
Here in America, many times we all go to the grocery store, we expect that they will
have milk that is fresh, food on the shelves that is good, and we more than likely will

As our ship was preparinto leave Roatan, tH-niidlnr. nm t% hobaid Kein w\ent up on
the deck to take some pictures. When he caine back he shared with Jennifer and me'
what he had witnessed. The Garifuna people of Honduras had been sharing their culture
with dance and music from the time the ship docked in Roatan throughout.the entire
day. These are amazing people, they dance barefoot on the concrete in 90 degree tem-
peratures, out in the hot sun all day. They dance so long and hard that you can see
where they have blisters and calluses on their feet. They are proud of their culture and
want to share it with all who come to Roatan. They depend on the tourists that come to
Roatan and they really appreciate all who help. My husband saw how much they really
do appreciate people coming to Roatan. As the ship was preparing to sail, many people
were on deck taking pictures, including Ken. The Garifuna dancers and musicians that
had danced and played music all day formed one long straight line, side by side, facing
dte ship, they all bowed together, with much gratitude, saying thank you to all who had
come. It touched Ken's heart in a very deep way as he recounted what he had seen to
Jennifer and me, he began to cry, and I could not hold back the tears, Jennifer knew
then that we would return to Roatan. Our lives are changing as we meet people along
our journeys, God is showing us so many things. Everyday wherever you are, watch, lis-
ten, pay attention to the people around you, and listen to the Lord as he speaks to you.
God has so much more for all of us to do and he has blessed us with our lives to use for
him.
We had the privilege of going to Costa Maya, Mexico, which is next to a small Mexican
fishing village, called Mahajual. Here you don't rent a car, you rent a golf cart. This is
very poor, tiny village right along the beach. You can ride up and down the few sandy
streets and find many children that are so excited to see you! The days that people come
to their little town are few and when they do everyone gets excited. Yes, the adults are
happy that tourists have come, but these people are so poor they desperately need some-
one to come and purchase the items they have crafted. Seeing the little open air school-
house with Escuela written on it really showed how poor that the people here really are.

Most of the homes did not even have real doors or windows. We met many children, but
there are a few that I want to tell you about now. The little girl thatJennifer gave the raft
that she had brought to use for a short time at the beach was so very excited and so was
her mommy Later we saw that the little girl had a little brother. He was given a new
beach ball and they were both given the little bags of toys and candy. The daddy, mommy
and the two children were so overjoyed that someone was giving their children some-
thing. Down the beach we met a man with children, they were given little bags as well,
the children's smiles were all the thanks we needed, yet he was so very grateful, he in-
sisted on giving us a tiny turtle carving. Many spoke no English, and we speak just a little
Spanish, yet the love of the Lord shines through all language barriers.
I want to share about one other child that we met in Mahajual, Mexico. This child
was about 10 and he was walking along the village sandy street selling maracas for a dol-
lar. We did not need another maraca, but could not resist this child. We bought a maraca
and then gave him some toys and things, including a pencil. He was so very happy, he
could not believe that he had been given something that he could keep! The dad stand-
ing nearby was very grateful and when he saw the pencil said with a great big smile,
Good, a pencil for his school! I wonder how excited children that you know would be if
they were given a pencil. Would most dads in America be so overcome with that kind of
gratitude if their child was given a pencil they could use for.school in the fall? Not one of
the children that we have ever given something to has ever said no, and never have they
said they did not want what was given to them. By contrast I want to share with you a
true story about an American child of about the same age as the boy with the maracas. I
just witnessed this child and father at a local restaurant in this area. His daddy and him
were sitting at a table across from us. The waitress brought both the child and the dad
their soft drinks. The child did not like his drink being in a child sized cip with a cover
and straw, a nice kind of cup, that you can keep. He pushed it across the table to his dad
and said that he did not want that junk cup. His dad then proceeded to give the little boy
the coloring book and new box of crayons that the waitress had handed them. The child
pushed the color book back to his dad, and then said he did not want those crayons, the
dad seemed embarrassed and set the crayon box and color book aside. He then showed
the child the fake tattoos that were part of this kids' pack. The little boy, said no very
loudly. He did not want any of that junk, he did not want to eat there and he wanted to
go home and play and watch TV This dad was taking his little boy out for a nice dinner
and yet this child was not happy Where was the gratitude? Where was the smile? Why
did the dad let the child behave in such a way? The real question, why are most children
in America so unaware of the blessings that they have? I believe it is because we are
blessed to live in the land of plenty and have forgotten to share with the children today,
that nothing should ever be taken for granted. Children and adults in our country may
have too much, they may be spoiled, they need to know that what they have is a blessing
from God. They need to learn to be thankful, and to share with others. It is up to the
adults of our nation to teach our children. Remember the boy in Mexico who was excit-
ed over a pencil for school? I wonder how that little boy would like to sit at that same
restaurant in our areawithhis dad and have his own cup of soda, a big meal withhis
dad and receive a coloring book, fake tattoos and a new box of crayons? I am quite sure
that he would be very thankful and the dad filled with much gratitude, it would have

Some of you:lam sure have heardthe Starfish story, but itseemsito fitwell he.neto.i
day. A man and his child were walking along the beach when they came across many,
many starfish lying washed up on the sand. The man knew that there were way too
many starfish to help, so he continued walking. The child stopped and picked up one of
the Starfish, throwing it back into the water. The man asked the child what good that did,
as he looked around seeing so many more Starfish. He said that did not make a differ-
ence to all those starfish. The child answered saying "It made a difference to that one!"
You see none of us can help everyone everywhere that needs help, the needs are too
great If everyone helps just one starfish it will make a difference. You may not be able to
travel to other countries, you may not be able to get out much, maybe you have very lit-
tle yourself, but if you really care, you too can make a difference. All of us can share
something with someone that has a need, we can give someone food, or clothes if they
need them, we can watch their children for them, or pick up groceries for someone, we
can see if there are children in the area that don't have the school supplies#they need
and help them out, you can always share a smile and the best part of all is you can
share your testimony of the blessings that you have in your life! God loves for his chil-
dren to help others. He says in Matthew 25:40 "And the King shall answer and say unto
them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me." You see when you share with someone else your
are sharing with Jesus.
We are truly blessed to live in America, your life may not be exactly the way that you
want it to be but compared to most places in our world, you are still blessed! Proverbs
11:25 in the Message translation sums it up very well: The one who blesses others is
abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped." Remember each night as you go
to bed, thank God for your bed, for the roof over your head, for the home you are in, for
the food.you have to eat, be thankful. Everyday, every night, whatever the circumstances
are in your life, you are'blessed, blessed beyond measure!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER

BLESSED


I wonder if any of you kids realize how blessed you really are to be living in America. Most of you
have plenty to eat. I know that I don't have to go to bed hungry. If I am hungry I can find something
to eat. Think about it, do you have to go to bed hungry? Most of ushere in America are blessed with
food to eat and a bed to go to bed in. How many of you have ever heard someone say,things like "I
am starving to death, or just I'm starving." Most of the people that we hear say that just mean that
they are hungry, they are not really going to starve to death.
This summer my family and I were blessed to travel to some other countries. In the country of
Honduras, my husband met some people that had eaten at a restaurant there. They did not finish all
of their food. When they were leaving some poor people that live near there asked if they could fin-
ish the food that the people had left on their plates. The answer was yes, they did not want the rest
of their food and it would otherwise be thrown away. Can you imagine being so hungry that you
would sit down and eat the food that was left on a complete strangers plate? These people really were
starving. In some places overseas right now, thousands die daily for lack of food and water. We all
need to be more careful of tie things that we say. We may bring on ourselves something that we do
not want to happen, by speaking in such ways. We certainly don't want to end up in a place where
we really starve to death,
Many times we don't realize that we have so many blessings around us and we take for granted
much that God has given to us. We have families, friends, homes, food, clothing, toys of all sorts,
televisions and so much more. We can go to school, we can worship the Lord at whatever church we
choose, we can take a vacation, go on a picnic, play with our pets, go shopping, play sports, go visit-
ing, the list can go on and on. Yes we are very blessed. This spring and summer, my family and I vis-
ited an orphanage in Roatan, Honduras. The children there don't have homes with families, they are
so very thankful if you bring them a pair of flip flops or some candy. You see, in Roatan they don't
have any real stores like we have here. They also are very poor and don't have any money. I took
some of my puppets there to share with them about Jesus and they were so very happy! We also took
them some food, toys, clothes and other things.
Our lives are changing as we meet people along our journeys. God is showing us so many things.
Everyday wherever you are, watch, listen, pay attention to the people around you, and listen to God
as he speaks to you. God has so much more for all of us to do and he has blessed us with our lives
to use for him.
My family and I had the privilege of going to Costa Maya, Mexico, which is next to a small Mexican
fishing village called Mahajual. Seeing the little open air schoolhouse with Escuela written on it really
showed how poor that the people here really are. Most of the homes did not even have real doors or
windows. The roads are all sand. We met many children. The little girl that Jennifer gave her raft to
was so very excited and so was her mommy. Later we saw that the little girl had a little brother. He
was given a new beach ball and they were both given the little bags of toys and candy Down the
beachwe metva.man with children.;Theywere given little bags as well. The children's smiles were all
the thanks we needed, yet he was so very grateful, he insisted on giving us a tiny turtle carving. Many
spoke no English, and we speak just a little Spanish, yet the love of the Lord helps all of us to under-
stand.
I want to share about one other child that we met in Mahajual, Mexico. This child was about 10
and he was walking along the sandy street selling maracas for a dollar. We did not need another

would be if you were given a pencil. Not one of the children that we have ever given something to
has ever said no, and never have they said they did not want what was given to them. I want to share
with you a true story about an American child of about the same age as the boy with the maracas. I

behave like this? I hope that you would not act like that. It looks like many children in America

who was excited over a pencil for school? I wonder how that little
boy would like to sit at that same restaurant with his dad and

All of us can share something with someone that has a need,
we can give someone food, or clothes if they need them, you can
always share a smile and the best thing to share is Jesus! God
loves for his children to help others. He says in Matthew 25:40
"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto
you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me." You see when you share
with someone else your are sharing with Jesus.
We are truly blessed to live in America. Remember each night
as you go to bed, thank God for your bed, for the roof over your
head, for the home you are in, for your family, for the food you
have to eat, be thankful. Everyday, every night, whatever is going
on in your life, remember you are still

Sign-up deadline Aug. 3 for

2007 Direct And Counter-

Cyclical Payment Program


Submitted

Farmers and landowners
with base acres and yields
have until Friday, Aug. 3 to
enroll in the 2007 Direct and
Counter-cyclical Payment
Program (DCP), announced
Kevin L. Kelly, State Execu-
tive Director for the USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
The DCP provides pay-
ments to eligible producers
on farms enrolled in the pro-
gram for the 2002 through
2007 crop years. There are
two types of DCP payments-
direct payments and counter-
cyclical payments. USDA
computes payments using the
base acres and payment
yields established for the
farm. The Farm Security and
Rural Investment Act of 2002
(2002 Farm Bill) authorized
DCP.
"Eligible producers should
enroll in DCP before the Aug.
3 deadline to avoid paying a
late fee," said Kelley. Produc-
ers failing to sign up by Aug.
3, but before Sept. 30, will
have to pay a late-file fee of
$100.


Farm producers must apply
for DCP on an annual basis
and can opt out of participat-
ing in DCP for any year if
they so choose.
In March, FSA extended
the DCP sign-up deadline to
Aug. 3. The original DCP en-
rollment deadline was June 1.
The final date to enroll in the
2007 DCP is Sept. 30. Enroll-
ment in DCP for the 2007
contract period began Oct. 1,
2006.
Interested farmers or
landowners are asked to con-
tact the local Suwannee
County FSA office at 386-
362-2681 for information on
program eligibility and the re-
quired documents necessary
for sign-up.
More information about
DCP is also available in the
program fact sheet found on-
line at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/In-
ternet/FSA_File/dcp06.pdf.
For more information on FSA
programs, Visit your local
USDA Service Center, US
129 South, Live Oak or the
agency's Web site,
http://www.fsa.usda.gov.


Recreational boating

safety record never better


Boating has never been
safer.
According to the latest
available statistics for
2004, more people died in
bathtubs and swimming
pools (847) than in recre-
ational boats (676). Operat-
ing a boat is far safer than


riding a bicycle, motorcy-
cle or off-road vehicle. In
fact, you have a much
greater chance of perishing
from a fall involving a bed,
chair or furniture (838) or
falling from a stairs or
steps (1,588) than you do
in falling from a boat.

Send your sports stories and pictures to the Democrat.

Dear Classified Guys,
I don't bring home the usual sou-
venirs from vacation. One year while
'visiting my mother in Kentucky, I
bought a power washer I found in the
classified. Another time we were
driving through New Hampshire,
stopped at a yard sale and drove
home with a table saw strapped to
the roof. Last week I was in Arizona,
and my brother-in-law and I had a
couple hours to kill so we looked at a
truck we found in the classified. It's
an older model, but I really liked it.
After the test drive, I bought it on the
spot for $400. Then reality sunk in
and I realized I don't know how to get
it home. Do I drive it all the way back
to Florida? My wife and I would have
to drive in separate cars for the
whole trip. I priced out shipping
it, but that was around
$900. Do you think it's ___
worth spending that much
to get it home?
Carry: We can see you're not -
the type of person who buys souvenirs
that just sit on a shelf and collect dust.
Your keepsakes tend to be a little bit
larger.
Cash: However, bringing this one
home will require more effort. You


CLASSINED

can't just strap a used truck to your
roof!
Carry: We can also tell you have a
tough time passing up a deal no matter
where you are in the country. Your wife
must love going on vacation with you.
Cash: Your decision to ship the
truck or not will depend on how much
you actually like it. Since the vehicle
probably doesn't have a value worth the
$900 shipping cost, it comes down to
your desire to own the truck.
Carry: If the vehicle was more valu-
able, say a $12,000 model, then the
shipping dost would be negligible.
However, in your case, it's twice the


price you paid.
Cash: Before you make your final
decision, you might want to consider
the other options. Even-with summer
gas prices, driving it home could be a
less expensive solution. In fact, there
are many couples who would consider
Driving in separate cars a real vacation!
Carry: If that's not an option for you,
then consider renting a car trailer to tow
the vehicle home. That way you won't
even have to worry about registration or
insurance.
Cash: Plus, you and your wife can
sit in the same car and discuss your
recent souvenir purchases!

Rest areas can be a welcoming sight
when you need a bathroom break, but
more people should consider stopping
simply to take a break from driving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration estimates that about
100,000 police-reported crashes each
year involve drowsiness and fatigue.
At least 71,000 people are injured by
drivers who fall asleep behind the
wheel every year. That alone is enough
reason to stop and take a rest.
Although, worse yet, one poll found
62% of adults admitted to driving a car
while drowsy and 27% stated they have
fallen asleep while driving.
Drive Time
A simple trip to the store shows that.
there are a lot of drivers and a lot of
cars. The average person tends to drive
about 33 miles per day according to The
Department ofEnergy. But the amount
you drive is largely dependent on the
area where you live. Rural residents
rack up about 40 miles per day or over
14,500 miles per year. Fortunately, city
drivers tend to travel less. They aver-
age about 30 miles per day or just over
11,000 miles annually.

I Assembly Line
SMy boss always thought he was
Sthe ultimate car salesman and usually
Proved it by closing the deal. Except
last week I think he met his match.
A customer came in just after look-
ing at foreign cars. He felt they had
better repair histories than their
American counterparts. However,
my boss was convinced he could sell
him an American automobile.
After a few test drives, my boss
pulled but a lease agreement and
Handed it to the customer. "You
know the US leads the %\ orld in the
number of cars produced," he said
still trying to convince him American
cars were the best.
"That's true," the customer agreed,
handing the agreement back. "But we
Also produce the most to,\ trucksr'"

Freezing Hot?
1. Fill one foam cup with cold water and another with
the same amount of very hot tap water.
2. Immediately place both cups in the freezer.
3. Check the cups every 15 minutes. The hot water
freezes first!
Why? Hot water evaporates faster than cold water:
During evaporation, a great deal of heat energy is lost.
The hot water freezes first because its temperature
drops at a faster rate than that of the cold water.


K ids are bomn curious. Their young brains are sponges that greedily soak
up all hie practical knowledge needed to learn to walk and talk. Yet when
it comes to the process of Formal education, sometimes the sponges loose
their thirst for knowledge.
Experts sa) that children have different learning styles, but regardless of style,
the:, must remain engaged and interested to learn effectively. In other words, the
challenge s making learning fun.
A Marn land middle schoolreading teacher started her Monday morning class
b, asking % ho had seen a movie over the weekend. Knowing the students were
les than enthused about the book assigned, comparing it to a popular Hollywood
blockbuster seemed a great way to engage them in a discussion. It worked!
In-st as teachers ha\ e their tricks, there are lots of fun ways for parents to help
their kid-, succeed at school. Internet searches reveal sites with free educational
games. do,.. nloadable worksheets, activities, books and countless other resources.



The joy of reading

Educators ad', ise that reading proficiency is key to academic success, and
families % ho read together create good readers. It's never too young to start
making reading fun'
* Reading daily, to babies and )oung children can be special time together.
Read .a t'ev. pages a day of chapter bobks like *Crtarlone' Web"Ftod;le'fentary-
school-aged children
* Encourage big brothers and sisters to read to younger siblings.
* Subscribe to a children's magazine.
S\'Visii the librarn regularly and sign up for story hour and summer reading clubs.
* Turn off the TV and have "family reading hour."
* Kids lJust not into reading? Maybe they haven't found the right book. Whether
loLce books. comics, sports, sci-fi or horses, appealing to their interests helps.



Making learning fun at home

Sere are some activities for parents and kids just
for the fun of learning:
m Have kids pay the restaurant bill, including
figuring the change and the tip.
m Work on the newspaper crossword or word
scramble together as.a family, on Saturday or
Sunday morning
a During family television time, check Discovery
Channel and PBS options first. Shows like those
on Animal Planet are fascinating for all ages.
a, Pay kids' allowance in different denominations
of bills and coins; for instance, use all quarters
one week.
n Search the Web for "making learning fun" to find
loads of free interactive educational games and
downloadable options.
Watch a movie that relates to the period of history
being studied at school.
a Have the kids plan a "virtual vacation" by
researching a destination online that relates to a
book they're reading or a topic of study in school.
a At the dinner table, discuss the fun fact or word
of the day using a page-a-day calendar, a Web site,
or The World Almanac for Kids Puzzler Decks as a
source.


neo tonner teacher has applied her uiicks of the trade to
create a lfun ne. 'resource for home or the classrooms -1
The World .\lnlan.ic for Kids Puzzler Decks -- packs of
mind-bending biain teasers cards. The author. Seattle-based
Lynn Brunellc, is an Emnr. A. :d-w.'inning writer and illus-
tidatr ,Ilios'e a.icominplikIl ntInls I ainge troni contributing to
The Disco'.ei;, Channel t. the board game Clanium to PBS's,
"Bill Nye the Science Guy."
Brunelle has taken the education-rich content of the top-
selling kids' almanac and morphed it into a series of enter-
taining decks of cards packed with all-new brain-engaging
games, puzzles, riddles, fascinating facts and more. There are
75 to choose from tailored by age and subjects like reading,
math, science and geography. The decks sell for under $10 and
are found wherever books arc sold. For more information, visit
www.chroniclebooks:com/worldalmanac or call (800) 722-6657.
"Vegetables that taste like candy," is how Brunelle describes
the new World Almanac for Kids Puzzler Decks. "They're fun
and good for you, too," she says.
So serve up some tasty tidbits of knowledge that your kids
are sure to remember.

of Centers for Disease Con-
trol warnings about a po-
tential West Nile epidemic.
He is also reminding people
to take precautions against'
mosquito bites.
The CDC says the number
of human West Nile Virus
cases in the United States is
nearly four times higher
than what it was this time
last year. The virus, carried
by mosquitoes can cause flu
like symptoms in people
and in horses and can be fa-
tal in the equine population.
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
is also often fatal in horses.
So far, Florida has not been
impacted by the rise in ar-
bovirus activity seen else-
where. In fact, there have
been no reported cases of
West Nile virus in horses
and only thirteen Eastern
Equine Encephalitis cases in
horses. No people have
been infected at all in Flori-
da. Commissioner Bronson
wants that trend to contin-
ue.:
"I believe people are heed-
ing the warnings to protect
themselves from mosquito
bites and that diligence
among horse owners to get
their animals vaccinated
has resulted in Florida's low
numbers," Bronson said."
Florida also has some very
effective mosquito control
districts to keep the mos-
quito populations down.
But its important that peo-
ple not get complacent con-
sidering what we are seeing
elsewhere in the nation."
Horse owners are urged to
check with their veterinari-
an to make sure their ani-
mals have received current
vaccinations and booster
shots against WNV and
EEE, and that these shots
are kept up to date.
Bronson says Floridians.
and visitors can take simple
steps to protect themselves
against mosquito borne dis-
ease by follow several sim-
ple steps:
* Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mos-
quitoes are most active.
* Wear light colored, long-
sleeved shirts and pants to
cover skin and reduce the
chance of being bitten when
outside between dusk and
dawn.
* Eliminate standing water
in yards, such as in bird-
baths, kiddie pools, old tires
and other receptacles, as


stagnant water is an excel-
lent breeding ground for
mosquitoes.
* Use insect repellent that
contains DEET, which is an
effective repellent.
* Keep window screens in
good repair.
* Clean out rain gutters and
keep them unclogged to
avoid pockets of standing
water.
