Lead in


children's toys


leads to


massive recall
IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net

Fisher-Price, Inc., a major manufacturer
and distributor of toys for children, has is-
sued a massive recall of approximately
967,000 products containing excessive
amounts of lead. The company is based in
East Aurora, N.Y.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission, the recall deals with
Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, and oth-
er toys. These items were made in China
and sold between May and August 2007 in
retail stores nationwide. The cost of each
toy is between $5 and $40.
The CPSC is urging consumers to take
these toys away from their children and
stop using them because they could pose
an immediate danger. "Surface paints on
the toys could contain excessive levels of
lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young
children and can cause adverse health ef-
fects," CPSC said.

Are our bridges safe?

As the nation deals with
the devastating destruction
of the Interstate 35W bridge
in Minneapolis, MN, and
the loss of approximately
five lives that occurred
around 6 p.m on Wednes-
day, Aug. 1, many people
across the country have


grown exceedingly con-
cerned about the safety of
the bridges in their own
state.
Florida Gov. Charlie
Crist, in response to the col-
lapsing of I-35W, urged the
Florida Department of
Transportation to conduct a
status check of every bridge
in Florida and send him a
report as quickly as possi-
ble. 'This horrible incident


reaffirms our responsibility
to ensure the safety of mil-
lions of Floridians and visi-
tors as they use our road-
ways and bridges," Crist
said. There are approxi-
mately 11,000 bridges in the
state, according to FDOT.
To calm fears about
whether the bridges in
Florida are safe, FDOT
Maintenance Director Tim
Lattner assured residents :


the inspection program that
is already in place is very
effective in determining
which bridges are safe and
which ones are in need of
attention. During the in-
spection process, according
to Lattner, certified inspec-
tors examine various parts
of bridges to make sure
they are in acceptable

Seeds from the Sower


Michael A. Guido
A lazy farmhand fell off
a tractor and was rushed
to the hospital.
After an examination
the doctor said, "Here's
some bad news. You
won't be able to work for
six months."
"Thanks," said the man.
"Now what's the bad
news?"
But work isn't bad for
us. It's good. The daily


grind of work gives us
polish.
God isn't a lazy God but
a laboring God. The Bible
opens with God working.
"In the beginning God cre-
ated the heaven and the
earth."
He's still working. Our
Lord said, "My father is
always, at work and I am
working."
It's ungodlike not to
work if you can work.

The role of color


in the classroom


When decorating the in-
terior of their homes, many
people take into account
just what attributes a color
will instill in a room. Be it
paint or wallpaper, the col-
or chosen can go a long
way toward creating a
mood. It should come as no
great surprise then that the
same principles can be ap-
plied to the classroom. Cer-
tain colors foster certain
moods. In an educational
environment, this can work
wonders with respect to
helping children concen-
trate and learn. In his book,
Color, Environment & Hu-
man Response, Frank
Mahnke offers guidelines
based on his own research
in the fields of color and en-
vironmental psychology.
For preschool and ele-
mentary school, Mahnke

George Roy Mullins, 79,
Live Oak, passed away Fri-
day, August 3, 2007 at his
home in Live Oak following
a long illness.
Daniels Funeral Home
and Crematory, Inc.


suggests a warm and bright
color scheme to comple-
ment the naturally extro-
verted nature of students at
that age. For upper-grade
and high school students,
cool colors are
recommended to promote
focus and concentration.
Mahnke even takes his
findings outside the class-
room and into a school's
hallways and the library. In
the hallways, Mahnke notes
that schools can vary their
color range as a means of
giving the school its own
personality. In the library,
Mahnke found that a pale
or light green promotes
both quietness and concen-
tration, exactly the type of
atmosphere schools hope to
create in their libraries.

Helpful advice for Florida
children, parents & drivers
With the start of the new school year, students will be
rushing to be on time, parents will be getting them on their
way, and drivers will be going about their business -- all
could heed some advice on safety. "This is a critical time of
the year," noted Roy Palermo, director of public informa-
tion for Teacher's Insurance Plan. "Drivers need to re-accli-
mate themselves to having children on and near the road,
particularly at rush hours. And, both children and their par-
ents need to get back into their good traffic safety habits."
He offered several tips from their safety information center.
Tips for walking or biking to school:
Walk with a friend
Pay attention to all traffic signals and crossing guards.
Never cross the street against a stop light.
Cross only at crosswalks, and never run into the street
from between parked cars.
Look left, right and over your shoulder for traffic before
crossing a street, and continue to check each direction.
Make sure drivers see you by making eye contact with
them.
If riding a bicycle, scooter or skateboard to school, al-
ways wear a helmet and ride in the same direction as traf-
fic. Walk your bike if crossing a street.
Tips for school bus riders
Do not play in the street while waiting for the bus
Line up facing the bus, not along side of it
After getting off the bus, move out of traffic
Wait for the bus driver to signal you to cross the street.
Walk away from the front of the bus so the driver can see
you'
Tips for parents and drivers
Everyone should wear a seatbelt, and children should
be in age and size appropriate car seats
Stay focused on driving and dori't be distracted by kids
in the car or with other activities
Slow down in school zones, Driving just 5 mph over the
speed limit increases both the risk of hitting a child and the
severity of any injuries'
You never know if children crossing the street are pay-
ing attention, so remain stopped until the child has crossed
not only your lane of traffic, but the adjacent lane as well
Never pass a vehicle that has stopped at a crosswalk, as
they may be waiting for someone to cross
.* Do not pass a school bus when its red lights are flash-
ing, even if it is on the other side of the street
Use extra care in areas where children may enter the
road from between parked vehicles or other things that
block drivers' view of the road. And, watch out for bicycles.
For more information on driver and passenger safety go
to their website, www.teachers.com/safety.

Centipede grass problems


Centipede grass is well
adapted to the climate and
infertile soils of North
Florida. Over the past
several years, we have re-
ceived numerous com-
plaints about centipede
not doing well or just dy-
ing out.
Centipede grass is best
adapted to a soil pH of 5.0
to 5.5. Severe yellowing
(iron chlorosis) and die-
back can occur if pH is
above 6.5. Usually this is
a.gradual process over
several years. High pH
can occur from over-lim-
ing or possibly from irri-
gation. Most well water
in our area tends to have a
pH above 7.0. Over time,
this can raise the soil pH
and lead to grass decline.
The application of wetable
sulphur can be used to
lower pH. But, this is
usually only temporary
and additional sulphur
applications may be need-
ed. The addition of iron
can also improve cen-
tipede grass performance
in some situations. The
only sure way to know if
pH is a problem is
through a soil test.
Another important part
of centipedegrass survival
is proper fertilization. As
mentioned, centipede is
low maintenance and does
not respond well to exces-
sive use of fertilizer, espe-
cially nitrogen and phos-
phorus. Centipede's nat-
ural color is a light yellow
green. High amounts of
fertilizer can deepen the
color, but will lead to ex-
cessive thatch buildup


and more disease and in-
sect problems.
Listed below is a fertil-
ization schedule and oth-
er information on cen-
tipede grass.

2-Complete fertilizer at
1.0 lb of nitrogen/1000 sq
ft

3-Iron (Fe) may be ap-
plied to provide dark
green color without stim-
ulating excessive grass
growth. Ferrous sulfate
(2 oz in 3 to 5 gal water
per 1000 sq ft) or a chelat-
ed iron source may be
used.
4-Water soluble inor-
ganic nitrogen sources
such as ammonium ni-
trate or ammonium.sul-
fate applied at 1.0 lb of ni-
trogen/1000 sq ft.
In summary Cen-
tipedegrass decline
Established centipede
grass (after a few years)
may develop yellowing
chlorosiss) and/or dead
spots. Numerous condi-
tions may contribute to
the problem and include:
High pH greater than
6.5
Excessive nitrogen fer-
tilization
High buildup of thatch
Hard winter freezes
(probably not an issue
with our mild winters of
late)
Lack of moisture. The
last two years have been
critically dry which adds
additional stress to the
plant.
Nematodes and other
disease organisms weak-

en the grass and make it
more susceptible to in-
jury.

Some remedies for these
conditions:
Soil test and follow fer-
tilizer and pH recommen-
dations
Do not over-fertilize
with nitrogen and phos-
phorus
Follow recommended
mowing heights and fre-
quency of cutting
Use ferrous sulfate or
iron as directed
Check with the Exten-
sion Office for sampling
help or more recommen-
dations.
Despite the problems
we are seeing with cen-
tipede, I am not ready to
give up on it as a grass in
our area. I think that if
we catch the problem ear-
ly, centipede can still per-
form well in our area.

Safe hunting



is NO accident


By Tony Young
With the dog-days of summer upon us,
it's hard to think about hunting. But if
you're between the ages of 16 and 31, and
haven't yet taken the state's hunter safety
class now's just the time to be thinking
about it. Many of these classes, 'offered
statewide, fill up fast during hunting sea-
son while people scramble to get certified.
Summer months offer smaller class sizes
and make for.a better opportunity for stu-
dents to attend because they often have
more free time.
Everyone 16 years old or older and born
after May 31, 1975, must complete the
FWC's hunter safety requirement before
they can buy a Florida hunting license.
There is an exception though. A law
passed last year allows individuals to hunt
under the supervision of a licensed hunter,
21 years old or older, without having to
complete the state's hunter safety, certifica-
tion.
It's called the "Hunter Safety Mentoring
Exemption," and enables those persons to
purchase a Florida hunting license and
hunt on a one-year trial basis. It's designed
to encourage experienced hunters to teach
novice hunters about our sport and is a
great incentive for getting more people to
give hunting a try. Individuals taking ad-
vantage of this would have to pass a
hunter safety class to be eligible to hunt the
following year.
If you're a youngster and already hunt, I
suggest you go ahead and take a hunter
safety class before you turn 16. Of course,
until then, you may hunt under adult su-
pervision.
You can register for a hunter safety class
by going to MyFWC.com/huntersafety or
by contacting your nearest FWC regional
office. Also, there are two versions for
your convenience.
There's the traditional course, which is
12 hours of classroom instruction plus a
four-hour "field day," or you can opt for
taking the online or CD-ROM version at
home. But, you'll still have to sign up for
the "skills day" part.
The traditional course is offered during
four weekdays or on a Saturday/Sunday.
If you take it during the week, each session
is three hours and offered after normal
working hours. On the weekend, you'll
spend eight hours Saturday and four hours
Sunday morning in the classroom. The re-
mainder of Sunday you'll move over to the
shooting range to complete your certifica-
tion.


The first thing you'll learn about taking
the traditional class is Florida's many hunt-
ing laws. An FWC law enforcement officer
gives this introduction. Volunteer hunter
safety instructors teach the remaining cur-
riculum.
You'll be taught ethics, hunter responsi-
bility, parts of firearms, various hunting
lingo and the proper way to shoot. You'll
discover the differences between various
bullets, calibers and gauges; how to identi-
fy game animals; and learn wildlife conser-
vation and best management practices for
native species. In addition, you'll find out
about outdoor survival techniques and
learn how to administer first aid in the
field. Archery and fundamentals of
bowhunting also are taught.
In your last hour in the classroom,
you'll be given a standardized test of true
and false and multiple choice questions.
All you need is to score an 80 percent or
better, and then you get to move outside to
the shooting range for the field day por-
tion.
This part takes about four hours. Dur-
ing that time you'll get to shoot clay pi-
geons with a shotgun, practice your
archery skills and target practice with a
.22-caliber rifle. You'll also receive a muz-
zleloader demonstration, where you'll
have the'chance to shoot one if you'd like.
All guns, bows, targets and ammo are pro-
vided. All you have to do is take aim.
After you complete the field day, you'll
be given your hunter safety card. At that
point you can purchase a Florida hunting
license and get ready for opening day.
If you choose to take the hunter safety
class online or by CD-ROM, you'll learn all
of the above-mentioned material and be
given a practice test to prepare you for the
last segment the skills day.
Saturday skill days take about five hours
to complete. You'll learn much of what is
taught during the traditional course, in-
cluding hunting laws and ethics, how to
handle firearms safely, when to take a shot
and where to take aim. Then you'll get to
shoot on the range and be given the same
standardized test.
Register today to take a hunter safety
class 'cause the 2007-08 hunting.season's
just around the corer. Remember safe
hunting is NO accident!

Natural, FDA-approved option

for reducing Cholesterol


Statin drugs have become
the option of choice for most
physicians treating patients
with high cholesterol levels,
a condition known as hyper-
cholesterolemia. Millions of
people currently take Lipi-
tor, Zocor and other pre-
scription medications in this
class. Statins are very effec-
tive at reducing cholesterol,
which is why prescriptions
for them are so readily doled
out by doctors. But what
many patients (and doctors)
may not realize is that
stations can cause a wide va-
riety of painful or potential-
ly dangerous side effects.
This leaves the public won-
dering if there is a safe,
FDA-backed option for re-,
ducing cholesterol that
doesn't produce unwanted
side effects, or if such an ag-
gressive cholesterol-reduc-
tion regimen is actually nec-
essary.
High cholesterol is a rela-
tively modem medical con-
dition. It didn't become a
mainstream issue until doc-
tors learned how to deter-
mine elevated blood choles-
terol levels through blood
tests. Many people have
misconceptions about cho-
lesterol, thinking it is solely
a byproduct of unhealthy
living. In fact, cholesterol is a
soft, waxy substance found
in all cells of the body. It is
important for many biologi-
cal functions, most notably
for keeping cells waterproof
allowing the inside of the
cell and the outside to peace-
fully coexist. Cholesterol is
also the body's repair sub-
stance: scar tissue contains
high levels of cholesterol, in-
cluding scar tissue in the ar-
teries. Cholesterol is pro-
duced naturally, but can
also be obtained by eating
animal products, such as
dairy, meat, eggs and fish.
It's when overindulgence in
fat-laden foods results in a
buildup of unhealthy cho-
lesterol in the body that
there is reason for concern.
At the preliminary stages
of cholesterol research, high
cholesterol was considered a
level of 240 with other risk
factors, such as obesity or
smoking. These days many
doctors diagnose you with
hypercholesterolemia if
your blood cholesterol level
is 200 or even 180. The rea-
soning could be that station


Now you can safely
treat high
cholesterol without
the unpleasant
side effects of
prescription drugs.






, .*, .' ;. et er "


drugs are a very lucrative
business for pharmaceutical
companies. The more peo-
ple deemed to have high
cholesterol, the more money
pharmaceutical companies
make from station drug pre-
scriptions.
This typically wouldn't be
a problem if the drugs didn't
have such apparent side ef-
fects. The most common
side effects of stations are
muscle pain and weakness,
a condition called rhab-
domyolysis, most likely due
to the depletion of Co-Q10, a
nutrient that supports mus-
cle function. Some stations
users develop pain immedi-
ately after beginning treat-
ment, or the pain can surface
months or years later. The
pain can become so severe
that trouble walking or falls
are common. In addition,
stations can cause liver dam-
age or failure, or can lead to
memory loss.
For those who medically
need to reduce cholesterol
but are frightened or pained
by the side effects of stations,
there is hope. CholesterLite
can reduce cholesterol levels
naturally with Phytosterol-
Esters. The FDA has ap-
proved this natural com-
pound as a solution to fight-
ing high cholesterol levels.
An all-natural dietary sup-
plement, Phytosterol-Esters
are certified and laboratory-
tested to lower cholesterol
up to 25 percent in 30 days.
This compound is a plant's
version of cholesterol. Phy-
tosterol-Esters share a very
similar molecular structure
to your own cholesterol.
They block the body's nor-
mal absorption of dietary
cholesterol, allowing Cho-
lesterLite to naturally lower
cholesterol. And because
CholesterLite ingredients


are backed by FDA ap-
proval, you can fight choles-,
terol with no side-effects
and total peace of mind.
This supplement allows
you to get adequate
amounts of these powerful
plant compounds in a new
Liquid Capsule (LiCaps)
form. for easy swallowing
and fast absorption. Call
800-437-8289 for your 30-
day, risk-free trial offer. The
product is gentle on the
stomach and does not pr6-
duce any of the side effects
of stations. In addition to tak-
ing these supplements, you
can take other steps to natu-
rally reduce your cholesterol
levels, including cutting
down on fatty foods, in-
creasing exercise and quit-
ting smoking. For more in-
formation on CholesterLite,

children already enrolled in SCHIP and
provides health insurance to five million
more children who are eligible, but not
enrolled, in the program.
"SCHIP has been successful in signifi-
cantly reducing the number of children
without health coverage since its estab-
lishment 10 years ago," said Congressman
Boyd. "Providing our children with access
to medical care is one of the most effective
investments we can make as a country.
Also, the SCHIP reauthorization bill is ful-
ly paid for, adhering to the pay-as-you-go
budget rules. I am pleased that the bill
supports the continuation of this impor-
tant program and does so in a fiscally re-
sponsible way."
This legislation also protects our rural
communities' access to healthcare with the
inclusion of a rural package that sustains
the rural healthcare safety net, adjusts
Medicare payments to rural hospitals, and
makes a series of changes to boost fund-
ing for rural clinics, doctors, and ambu-
lances.
Additionally, the SCHIP reauthorization
bill ensures that seniors and people with
disabilities can continue to see the doctors
of their choice by stopping a 10 percent


payment cut to doctors, scheduled to take
place in January 2008.
SCHIP was first created in 1997 to cover
children and families who earned too
much to qualify for Medicaid but either
didn't have employer-based coverage or
couldn't afford private coverage. In 2006,
6.7 million children were enrolled in
SCHIP, and of these children, 83 percent
are from households that are at or below
200 percent of the poverty level.
Approximately two million children
and families in the state of Florida are eli-
gible for SCHIP, known as KidCare in
Florida.
"It is my hope that Florida will take ad-
vantage of the federal funding for this vi-
tal program and work to make our state's
KidCare program more accessible to eligi-
ble, low income children," Boyd stated.
"SCHIP is a state and federal partnership,
and as the SCHIP reauthorization bill
moves through Congress, I am eager to
work with my colleagues in Congress and
with the state of Florida to make the pro-
gram even more effective."
The SCHIP reauthorization bill has been
endorsed by the AARP, the American
Hospital Association (AHA), the Ameri-
can Medical Association (AMA), and the
National Rural Health Association.

As far as the Hal
Adams bridge is con-
cerned, FDOT reports that
it is safe and is in excellent
condition for its age.
"Bridges in Florida are in-
spected, every two years
and are in very good con-
dition. We recently made
some repairs to the Hal
Adams bridge including
repainting it and it's in
good shape," Gina Bussch-
er, FDOT spokesperson for
District Two, said.
The Hal Adams bridge,
which connects SR 51 in
Lafayettte and Suwannee
counties across the Suwan-
nee River, was built in
1947. The bridge gets its
name from the late Hal
Adams who served as cir-
cuit judge in northern
Florida. When it was built,
the Hal Adams bridge re-
placed a 40 year old truss
bridge that was used by
ferries. It is also the only
suspension span bridge in
the entire state of Florida.
The I-35W bridge was con-
structed in 1967.

Alton. The name for the
shop came from combin-

names.
The Scotts and their
daughter are very elated
about opening theit busi-
ness in Mayo and are look-
ing forward to serving the
community in the years to
come. "Quilting is a fa-

JoAnn's. The need for a
quilt shop in the local area
was apparent after learn-
ing of all the other quilters
in the area," Alton said.
Since opening their
doors on June 15, 2007,
customers from Mayo and
neighboring communities
began to trickle in. Ac-


cording to JoAnn, an aver-
age of 25 people per week
have visited their shop.
Alton and his family
moved from Jacksonville
to Mayo. He served in the
U.S. Navy for 20 years,
taught at Florida Commu-
nity College of Jack-
sonville for 13 years, and
operated his own teaching
business there. JoAnn

common during


summer but need reporting

Reports of dead fish, ranging from a few individuals to
thousands, have prompted dozens of calls per week to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
this summer.
Apprehensive callers to the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline wor-
ry something must be terribly wrong; others just want to
know the causes.
Fortunately, the mechanism at the root of most summer-
time fish kills in freshwater lakes, man-made retention
ponds and brackish estuaries is well understood by scien-
tists. Ironically, a lack of sunshine in the Sunshine State is
where problems begin. The process starts with overcast
skies, hot summer days and rainy weather. Low water lev-
els, brought on by drought, add to the mix.
Most of the oxygen fish breathe is created when water-
borne microscopic plants use sunlight to produce and add
dissolved oxygen to the water, a process known as photo-
synthesis. But when overcast skies persist for several days,
there is often not enough sunlight to power the oxygen-
making process that supports fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from thunderstorms adds to the
problem by stirring up bottom sediments that mix with
good quality water near the surface, compounding the prob-
lem. Rainwater runoff can also wash large amounts of de-
caying plant and animal material into the water body. In the
-decay process, bacteria use dissolved oxygen in the water to
break down plant and animal matter, further lowering oxy-
gen levels.
In short, during extended summer periods of overcast,

rainy or cloudy weather, the biological system uses dis-
solved oxygen faster than it can produce it. Stormy weath-
er aggravates the situation by creating and intensifying all
the conditions that lower dissolved oxygen levels in the wa-
ter.
The good news is that most water bodies don't suffer re-
peat performances every year. In fac, most water bodies go
years without suffering a major fish kill. Fish populations
usually replenish themselves naturally from surviving fish.
Floridians can report fish kills in natural water bodies to
the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline at 1-800-636-0511, the FWC's
Lake City office at (386) 758-0525 or online at
http:/ /MyFWC.com by clicking on
"Contact FWC." It is not necessary to report fish kills in
man-made retention or private ponds.

Altamonte Springs The Florida Council
on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG) recent-
ly announced that annual calls placed to its
24-hour HelpLine (888-ADMIT-IT) shot
up a near 25% from the year prior. According to
Pat Fowler, Executive Director, "The statewide
HelpLine responded to 3,715 calls in FY 2006-
2007 from persons seeking help or information
for a gambling problem here in Florida, when
calls just one year ago totaled 3,002. This is
merely one indicator of the rise in gambling
problems among the State's residents."
The HelpLine data also reveals that Broward
and Dade county callers accounted for the great-
est volume of contacts, and slot machines were
identified as the primary gambling problem
among both males and females (44% of overall
calls). Per information received, more than 50%
of all calls originated from South and South Cen-
tral Florida. Beyond the slots, card and lottery
games, as well as Internet gambling, ranked 2nd,
3rd and 4th respectively. Sports betting and
horse racing followed behind.
"Overextended debt, relationship difficulties
and substantial loss were the three most pressing
issues prompting citizens to call the HelpLine.
Almost 75% of help callers revealed the gambler
owed money, primarily to credit card companies,
which continues to be a growing problem among
this population. Ultimately, these financial pres-
sures result in the filing of bankruptcy and the
commission of crimes, as 14% of HelpLine
callers filed bankruptcy this fiscal year and 23%
committed illegal acts due to gambling, includ-
ing 60% fraud (e.g. bad checks and forgery),
23% embezzlement, 14% larceny/theft and 3%
other. Moreover, callers reported that 20% of the
gamblers were unemployed (8%), retired (7%) or
out on disability or workers compensation (5%),".
explained Fowler.
Fowler also pointed out that the HelpLine is
only effective in instances when residents know
the service exists and there are resource referrals
to send them to for support with a gambling
problem. Although 70% of callers noted the


gambler is experiencing difficulty paying house-
hold bills, and undergoing family or spouse con-
flict, anxiety and/or depression, there is currently
no state funding for gambling addiction treat-
ment in Florida.
"Over 10% of callers admitted to alcohol or
substance abuse problems and 29% acknowl-
edged they came from families where gambling
was a problem. This information is conservative
at best, as 41% of the calls were from the gam-
blers themselves and family members and signif-
icant others often are unaware of the extent of the
gambler's involvement in certain activities or
debt incurred," Fowler added.
This year's calls also uncovered a 6% increase
among minority gamblers (39% of overall con-
tacts) and a 9% rise among Protestant bettors
(41% of total calls). In addition, nearly half of
the gamblers identified were between the ages of
31-49, more than 20% were over age 55, and
11% reported 25 years or younger. In fact, of the
87 callers who responded to the question as to
whether the gambling began or intensified after
retirement, 61% responded in the affirmative.
"Gambling has expanded throughout the State
this year and calls to the HelpLine demonstrate
that problem gambling is on the rise among
Floridians across age groups. Assuming this is a
trend that appears likely to continue, it is time the
State Legislature takes action to ensure there are
state funds available to help citizens recover from
gambling addiction, which is a treatable disorder
when such assistance is sought and available,"
Fowler concluded.

Loving pets for you from Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith

This week's column will
feature one of the animal
control officers at our shelter.
Janis Hunter has been an an-
imal control officer for more
than 15 years, first serving
seven years in Hillsborough
County, as an animal control
officer and cruelty investiga-
tor, before moving to Suwan-
nee County. When she was
hired in this position in 1998,
there was no county shelter
at all. She started out in
Branford with three old
cages under a makeshift can-
vas .shelter, an old pickup
truck and minimal tools.
SIn 2002 a permanent shel-
ter was built on its present
site on 144th Street. It was a
yast improvement over pre-
V'ious facilities, but quickly
became filled to overflow-


ing, and continues in that ca-
pacity even today. Even with
the addition of a second ani-
mal control officer, the job is
one that entails covering
more than 800 miles, and re-
quires these two people to
handle every possible sce-
nario that involves animals
of every kind throughout
most of this county.
In addition to impounding
strays, abused and neglected
animals, they often find
themselves settling family
and neighborhood arguments
over animals as well. They
are called out to automobile
accidents when an animal is
involved. If an elderly person
passes away or needs to be
put in a care facility, often
that person's pet winds up at
the, shelter. When someone

These two officers are
also called on to rescue ani-
mals: cats stuck up in trees
or caught in a car engine;
pups trapped under houses;
snakes behind water
heaters; orphaned baby rac-
coons and other wild ani-
mals; abandoned horses and
goats; and a myriad of
problems they have been
trained to handle, including
rabid and aggressive ani-
mals and nuisance animals.
Quite often they are called
as witnesses when prob-
lems involving any animals
are concerned, as in abuse
and neglect cases.
In addition to their daily
jobs, and all the phone calls
and paperwork that is in-
cluded, these animal control
officers are certified in oth-
er areas. Hunter has been
trained in proper euthanasia
methods, animal behavior
training, is certified in ani-

many of them must be "put
down" because we do not yet
have a facility that allows us
to have a veterinarian as part
of our complex who can treat
sick or injured animals, nor
the room to house so many.
On the other hand, in re-
cent months the number of
adoptions has been on the in-
crease, for which we are tru-
ly happy. Currently we still
have a large quantity of pup-
pies and kittens who need a
home. Please come and see
these animals. Make us one
of your stops when you are
looking for that special pet to
become part of your family.
If we don't have exactly
what you are looking for this
time, it's almost a certainty
we'll have one come in with-


in a short time.
We are always asking for
volunteers to help us. And it
goes without saying that do-
nations of every kind are al-
ways greatly appreciated. We
rely on the good will of local
businesses and the citizens
of Suwannee County to help
us keep on doing the work
we have been doing all this
time. And, as always, please
have your pet spayed or
neutered. Help bring the
number of unwanted strays
down.
The shelter is located on
144th Street at the north end
of McAlpin (the same road
that leads to the large county
landfill off US 129). For

Most people know there is a distinction between "good" and
"bad" cholesterol. But what makes some good and some bad?
And which foods are OK to eat and which should be avoided?
Good

What is it? High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is known as
"good" cholesterol. This is because HDL is believed to remove
cholesterol from the blood. When HDL levels in the blood are
high, this is believed to reduce a person's risk of coronary
heart disease. The adverse effect occurs when HDL levels are
low.
Good foods to eat: Because genetics play a role in cholesterol
levels, what's good for the goose isn't always good for the
gander. However, these foods have been known to reduce LDL
levels:
Foods with soluble fiber: foods containing soluble fiber,
which is known to reduce the absorption of cholesterol in your
intestines, reduce levels of LDL. Oatmeal, oat bran, cereals
containing oats, kidney beans, apples, and prunes are all high
in soluble fiber.
Fish and omega-3 fatty acids: omega-3 fatty acids help
reduce blood pressure and the risk of blood clots. Fish that
boast high levels of omega-3 fatty acids include mackerel, lake
trout, salmon and albacore tuna.
Walnuts/almonds: walnuts are known to significantly
reduce blood cholesterol, and walnuts and almonds can both
do wonders in as little as four weeks. However, be careful, as

Dear Classified Guys,'
I don't get it. Luck just seems to fol-
low my friend Samantha when it
comes to yard sales. When I was
redoing my living room, I told her I
needed several three-foot wide cur-
tain rods. The next week, she handed
me seven of them that she found at a
yard sale for only a dollar. When she
had her baby, she furnished the
entire nursery for less than $50, all
from yard sales. She had one of the
most beautiful cribs I'd ever seen.
Then, when her church was starting
a day care center, she donated a
massive amount of toys in great con-
dition, again from yard sales. I've
asked her several times how she
comes across these items so cheap.
She says it just happens. I go to a
few sales, but all I ever seem
to buy is someone's old
coffee pot or used coffee
mugs. I want to find these
great bargains too. How can I
increase my luck?
Carry: It can be frustrating to see
someone else find all the deals, but look
at the bright side. You should never
have a shortage of coffee mugs.
Cash: While many people believe
luck is just something you have or that


"E



Duane "Cash"
& Todd "Ci


accidentally finds you, nothing could be
further from the truth.
Carry: What you may consider
"luck" is more that just accidental.
Lucky people are typically those who
are good at keeping an open mind or
putting themselves in situations that
create opportunity.
Cash: For example, your friend may
be good at picking yard sales from the
classified ads that list items of interest.
When she gets there, she probably sees
lots of opportunity among all the
things, rather than focusing on just the
coffee mugs.
Carry: It also sounds like your friend


;IRED



OYS





array" Holze

iTr., :,- ,,


visits a lot more yard sales than you typ-
ically do. That will naturally increase
her odds of finding a good bargain.
Cash: If you want to increase your
luck, start by looking for yard sale ads
that match your interests. If you were
looking to furnish a nursery, there would
be a lot of opportunity shopping a yard
sale that lists baby items for sale.
Carry: You could also tag along with
youi friend on her yard sale excursions.
In addition to shopping, you can see first
hand how "lucky" she is.
Cash: Although it is possible you're
the lucky one. After all, how many peo-
ple have friends who will shop for them?


Your Number's Up
When July 7, 2007 (a.k.a. 07/07/07)
rolled around this year, there were a lot
of people hoping it would be a lucky
day. Although the gaming industry did
see a rise in participants, the real for-
tune was for people getting married.
July 7, 2007 was one of the most popu-
lar wedding days in history. An estimat-
ed four times as many people tied the
knot on that day than any other Saturday
this year. Even celebrities got in on the
lucky day. Desperate Housewives star
Eva Longoria got married, as did
celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.
Jackpot
When it comes to the lottery, every-
one wants to be lucky. About one-half
of all adults collectively spend $45 bil-
lion annually on 35,000 different lottery
games nationwide. But before you pick
your next numbers at random, consider
this. Many of the state lottery commis-
sions and lottery enthusiasts publish
which numbers are most and least com-
mon. In Arizona, for example, the
numbers 1, 2, 5, 8, and 13 are drawn the
least. Of course, maybe the luckiest
people are those who save their dollar.

Problem Solved
Every Sunday a bunch of us guys
get together to play softball for a few
hours. Last week our first baseman,'
Jim. didn't make the game
wondering g wh\ he missed it,I'
Decide to gt\e him a call
He immediately apologized and
told me that he forgot about the
game. Apparently while holding a
Sard sale, he accidental\ sold his
wedding \ ideo in a box of old V\HS
tapes.
"l\ u ife was so funous she ewant-
ed me to sleep on the couch." he said.
"So I had to fi\ the problem."
"Did ,ou get the % video back?" I :
asked.
"Not quite," he replied "ButI did
sell the couch!"

Think-blue, too
-. ', ..-...


As public awareness builds for "green" issues such as global warming and air pollution, individuals worldwide are
recognizing their personal responsibility for protecting the world we live in. That mentality also extends to "blue"
causes, such as the marine environment one of our most precious natural resources.
"My family and I have explored and documented in film the planet's oceans for the last
50 years or so. and I know by the response to our programs, the public shares our love of
marine life," said Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau
and founder of the Ocean Futures Society.
Yet litter has become a persistent problem along shorelines throughout the nation and
abroad, creating.an eyesore and negatively impacting the overall health of our beaches and
waterways. The offensive debris comes from many sources, including area residents, visitors
and even people living miles away whose trash is picked up by drainage systems, washed
out to sea and re-deposited on beaches.
"To solve the problem we must each take personal responsibility and change our habit
of disposing of objects that could be recycled, so they won't end up in the water system,"
Cousteau said.
With that in mind, the American Lifeguard Association and Global Lifeguards are asking
people to "Take It Back Plus." The campaign encourages visitors to bring along a plastic garbage bag during trips to the
beach, lake or riverfront.
"The idea is to collect your own trash during your visit, but also take along at least one extra piece of litter when you
leave." explains B.J. Fisher. director of health and safety at the American Lifeguard Association. "This small act multiplied
by many people can have a tremendous impact on the appearance and wellbeing of aquatic environments of all sizes."
For additional information and tips on preserving the world's marine environment, visit Our Ocean Futures Society
Web site at www.oceanfutures.org.
