continues

Six arrested in county

The Lafayette county commis-
sion meeting room on Wednes-
day, Aug. 22, at 4 p.ri., was the
site of townsfolk and visitors from
surrounding communities who
came to speak with Senator Bill
Nelson. Issues they felt needed to
be addressed were immigration


reform, identity theft, the farm
bill, the rising cost of property in-
surance, the current status of the
war in Iraq, and new legislation
that promises to ensure all prod-
ucts imported from China are
safe.
Among those in attendance
were Lafayette County Sheriff
Carson McCall, Suwannee River
Water Management District Gov-
erning.Board member Louis Shiv-


er, County Commissioners Jack
Byrd, Donnie Hamlin, and Boogie
Pridgeon, and Code Pink Tally
member; Lydia Vickers from Tal-
lahassee, as well as several mem-
bers of the community.
Shiver, Mayo resident and resi-
dent of Shiver Dairy Farm, Inc.,,
was the first person to stand up
and ask a question. His concern

A three-month drug investigation came to an end
on Aug. 25, with the arrest of six individuals for the
sale of illegal narcotics. Sheriff Carson McCall stated
the war on drugs continues in Lafayette County and
will continue due to its zero drug tolerence. The fol-

Future of


DARE


uncertain
IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
Since 1983, the Drug Abuse Resis-
tance Education (DARE) program
has been instrumental in influencing
many of America's youth to steer
clear away from drugs and those
who sell them. But, some Florida of-
ficials are seeking to have the pro-
gram eliminated from the state's
budget because they say it has be-
come less effective than when it first
began.
An avid supporter of DARE, Flori-
da Governor Charlie Crist hopes of-
ficials will agree to keep funding
the program.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE), as well as oth-
er departments, were approached by
Gov. Crist to choose which items
could be eliminated from the state
budget. One of the items FDLE sug-
gested was its involvement in the
DARE program. "In response to this
request, FDLE identified areas in
which the department could reduce
or eliminate services if necessary.
DARE was offered-for consideration
to avoid potentially eliminating or
reducing more critical services that
are directly tied to our mission to

Drought lingers while water

tables continue to fall


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
The Suwannee River Water
Management District is remind-
ing all residents that a water
shortage advisory remains in ef-
fect and will not be lifted until the
area receives a sufficient amount
of rainfall in order to bring water
tables back to their normal levels.
"The drop in groundwater levels
is due primarily to a long-term
rainfall deficit," district officials
said.
Residents are urged to volun-
tarily restrict indoor and outdoor


water use. According to Lafayette
County Public Works Director
Donnie Land, if everyone works
together to conserve water usage,
firefighters will still be able to
have the water they need to com-
bat and put out any fires that
flare up.
SRWMD suggests that you
landscape your yard with plants
that are drought-resistant, clean
your sidewalk and driveway with
a broom rather than with a water
hose, turn off your faucet while
you are brushing your teeth, and
install devices that will help save

NFCC sets Sept. 4 orientation
William Sircy, Instructional Coordinator of the NFCC
Public Safety Academy, announced a Sept. 4, orienta-
tion for those who have taken the required F-BAT exam
and plan to begin law enforcement or corrections classes
this fall at NFCC. The orientation is in the Career and
Technical Center, Building #13, at NFCC and takes place
in room 215 at 6 p.m.
NFCC is accepting applications for the Law Enforce-
ment and Cross-Over (Corrections to Law Enforcement)
classes beginning mid-September. Classes are part-time,
Monday through Thursday from 6-11 p.m. at the NFCC
Career and Technical Education Center. Some weekend
training is required.
"Corrections facilities in the area are currently hiring
trained corrections officers," said Sircy. "Local and out-
of-the area agencies are also recruiting at NFCC."
Law enforcement and corrections officer training pre-
pares students for the certification exams required for all
Florida officers. Corrections officer program, which may
be completed in seven months, is open entry and starts
new students every few weeks. The law enforcement
program may be completed in approximately one year.
Interested students should contact the Academy now

and acquire an agency sponsorship. Eighteen is the min-
imum age requirement.
Financial assistance is available to qualified candi-

North Florida emergency blood shortage


LifeSouth Community
Blood Centers, headquar-
tered in Gainesville, ex-
panded a recent blood ap-
peal to include all of their
operating areas in Florida
including the Citrus, Civi-
tan, Marion, Hernando,
Putnam and Suwannee
Valley regions. Some of the
centers have less than a
day's supply of blood in re-
serve, which is creating real
concern for blood center of-
ficials. All residents are
asked to give blood.


"Blood donations haven't
kept pace with demand
and we've had a very tight
supply for the past few
weeks. But now several pa-
tient situations involving
children and adults facing
life threatening medical
conditions depleted the re-
serve supplies. We're wor-
ried about our overall abili-
ty to make sure the patients
who need transfusions will
receive what they need
during the next few days,"
said John David Larkin


Bluegrass Pickin'
September 1
Otter Springs
Resort
We would like to ask everybody to come out Septem-
ber 1, at 7 p.m. to listen to some of the best bluegrass in
North Florida. The Suwannee Valley Bluegrass Pickin
takes place at Otter Springs Resort on the first Saturday
of each month and the music starts at 7 p.m. We will be
having our bluegrass pickin' going on inside the Otter
Springs Resort Lodge.
It is free to the public, and in a nice air-conditioned
building. All you have to do is bring yourself on out to
Otter Springs Resort and have a great time and enjoy
some good ole time bluegrass music or call and reserve a
full hookup campsite.
For more information you can call Cloud Haley at 800-
990-5410 or Mr. Stacy 386-935-3337 or Otter Springs Re-
sort 352-463-0800. Hope to see ya there.


Nolen, MD, PhD, MSPH,
LifeSouth's Medical Direc-
tor.
Nolen said that a variety
of situations have de-
creased donations, "certain-
ly summer travel and
school vacations have de-
creased our collections.
This summer's heat wave is
also playing a role just in
terms of people's general
comfort level and willing-
ness to donate."
LifeSouth is the sole
blood supplier for 35 med-
ical facilities in 17 counties
in Florida. On average, the
blood center needs 1,600
donors weekly to meet the
needs of the patients in the
hospitals they provide.
"We need the residents of
north central Florida to do-
nate to help supplies recov-
er to safe levels. Fortunately
the communities we serve
are responsive when they
know there is a critical
blood shortage and we're
confident that we'll see re-
sponse to our appeal,"
Nolen said.
Please call toll free (888)
795-2707 or visit www.life-
south.org for donor center
and blood drive informa-
tion. Blood donors must be
at least 17 years old, weigh
110 pounds or more, and
show photo I.D.

Report on Student Progression 2006-2007


School Board of Lafayette County


Provisions of the law re-
lating to public school stu-
dent progression and the
district's policies and pro-
cedures on student reten-
tion and promotion.
According to section
1008.25 F.S., it is the intent
of the Legislature that
each student's progression
from one grade to another
be determined, in part,
upon proficiency in read-
ing, writing, science, and
mathematics. Each student
and parent must be in-
formed of that student's
academic progress.
Each School Board must
establish a comprehensive
program for student pro-
gression which shall be
based upon an evaluation
of each student in a cur-
riculum which covers the
Sunshine State Standards
and Grade Level Expecta-
tions and complies with
state law.
The School Board of
Lafayette County has es-
tablished a Pupil Progres-
sion Plan in accordance
with section 1008.25, Flori-
da Statute. Student pro-
gression is based on evalu-
ation of each student's
achievement on estab-
lished Sunshine State Stan-
dards provided by the
state. Students who are


achieving below district or
state standards in reading,
writing, mathematics,
and / or science will be


identified and given reme-
dial instruction as needed.
Third grade students who
score Level 1 in Reading


on the Grade 3 FCAT will
be retained unless they
meet one of the six good
cause exemptions.

Learning about arthritis


As most middle-aged
men and women would at-
test, an aging body is one
that experiences more than
a few changes. Among the
more common changes is a
decrease in vision or hear-
ing and a reduction in how
much exercise the body
can. take. While everyone's
body, is -different, it's safe.
to say both men and
women can expect a
change or two in their
body's makeup as they get,
older.
One of the most common
chronic health problems
among Americans is
arthritis, which affects 46
million adults in the Unit-
ed States alone. While
most people are aware of
the word "arthritis," they
might not be aware of the
specifics surrounding
these conditions.
What is arthritis?
Unbeknownst to many
people, arthritis is not ac-
tually a single disease. In
fact, arthritis refers to
more than 100 medical

conditions. And though
arthritis is commonly asso-
ciated with senior citizens,
it is not restricted to the
older set. While the most
common form of arthritis
generally afflicts those
over the age of 60, young
adults, the middle-aged
and even infants are not
immune to arthritis.
So why is arthritis such a
blanket term? All types of
arthritis share one com-
monality, which is they af-
fect the musculoskeletal
system, in particular the
body's joints. Arthritic
conditions can result in
pain, stiffness and inflam-
mation of the joints and
can cause damage to a
joint's cartilage as well.
Damaged cartilage can
make seemingly ordinary
tasks such as brushing
your teeth, walking or
even using your comput-
er's keyboard very diffi-
cult.
While joint problems are
the piece that links all
types of arthritis, the dam-
age done by arthritis can
extend beyond the joints as
well. Systemic arthritis can
affect the body's major or-
gans, such as the heart,
lungs and kidneys, among
other things.
Who gets arthritis?
According to the Arthri-
tis Foundation, more than
half those affected with


arthritis are under the age
of 65. Those numbers in-
clude the nearly 300,000
children who suffer from
an arthritic condition.
As for men and women,
women are more likely to
be stricken with arthritis.
Of the more than 41 million
cases of doctor diagnosed
arthritis, roughly 24 mil-
lion are women.
What are the types of
arthritis?
Though there are more
than 100 medical condi-
tions classified under the
umbrella term arthritis, the
following types are a few
that qualify.
Rheumatoid arthritis:
This affects mostly women
and is one of the most dis-
abling forms of arthritis.
It's serious because, as the
joint becomes inflamed, it
has an adverse affect on
the body's immune system.
Juvenile arthritis: Like
the term "arthritis," juve-
nile arthritis is a. general
term and refers to a hand-
ful of arthritic conditions
affecting children.
Fibromyalgia: This can
be very painful, affecting
the muscles and attach-
ments to the bone. Rare in
men, fibromyalgia mainly
affects women.
Gout: Unlike fi-
bromyalgia, gout affects
mostly men and is often
the result of a defect in


body chemistry, one that
can be brought on by poor
diet. Fortunately, gout,
which often attacks the big
toe, can typically be con-
trolled by both medica-
tions and by making posi-
tive changes in diet.
Osteoarthritis: This oc-
curs as bone cartilage be-
gins to deteriorate. As the
cartilage at the ends of
bones deteriorates, bone
begins to rub against bone,
making osteoarthritis one
of the more painful and
difficult to live with forms
of arthritis. The most
prevalent form of arthritis,
osteoarthritis greatly limits
a person's movements as
the cartilage continues to
deteriorate.
To learn more about
arthritis and its many
forms, visit the Arthritis
Foundation Web site at
www.arthritis.org.












Arthritis can make something
as simple as typing on your
keyboard a painful and labori-
ous process.

FOUR SENIORS RETURN for the volleyball Lady Hornets as they open their home season tonight.

schedule. (photo by Ed Taylor)


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

The Lafayette Lady Hornets volleyball
team will return three seniors this volley-
ball season as well as a new head coach.
Sonya Land will continue the merry-go-
round of coaches for the sport that has
struggled over the past years. Land
comes in as the head coach after coaching
the junior varsity team last season. "I
think the reason this program struggles is
because every year they start out with a
new coach," said Coach Land. "A new
coach comes and they have to learn the
game. We haven't had one coach long
enough to build a winning team."
But all that could change this season as
Land will return a strong flux of players
that includes three seniors. Joining the
three seniors will be another senior, Na-
talie Land, who has not played volleyball


at the school. "This will be Natalie's first
year in volleyball," said Land, "but she is
going to really help us."
The Lady Hornets will have experience
at the important positions which includes
a good crop of spikers and setters, ac-
cording to Land. "We have a lot of good
spikers and setters to set," she said. "In
the past years I haven't seen girls who
could spike the ball but this year I actual-
ly have about four or five."
Land feels the team is more motivated
this year and that can only help the
cause. "That has been the big difference I
have seen so far in this year's team," said
Coach Land. "They are wanting to play
and they are moving much better."
The new head coach likes the make up
of this year's team that she sees only good
things ahead. "I may be wrong, I hope

Gridiron battles!
After knocking each
,around on the practice field
'for the past three weeks,' ,
lugh schuoltootball will get
underway for real tonight as .
teams from around the state
,of Florida do battle on the
gridiron. No doubt each
team is optimistic this time
:of the season and each
,squad is thinking state play-
offs come December. We MarcusEdwards
wish each team the best in
their endeavor to reach the
state playoffs.
I did not get to take in any football games for
Lafayette last season when they finished with a
:sparkling 10-1 mark. If I am not mistaken in the past
three seasons they have lost a total of three games
while winning 31 times. That is amazing. Now I may
stand corrected on that but if it is not on the money it
;is pretty close. Coach Joey Pearson and his staff al-
ways has a competitive team on the field. Lafayette
fans know when it comes football time they are going
to enjoy a winning season. A lot of schools cannot
claim that.
: I look forward to being part of the large crowd that
'will gather at the Hornet stadium tomorrow night
when Keystone Heights (9-2 last season) comes to
Mayo. I am excited. Coach Pearson told me that he
was excited about a new season as well. Should be a
good season opener for both teams.

sham had a strong outing in Florida State's scrim-

tough Keystone Heights

football'team that likes to
mix it up on the field.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7
p.m.
"Keystone is a 2A school
that enjoys playing tough
football," said Coach Pear-
son. "They finished 9-2 last
season and is a strong
team."
The Hornets will be com-
ing off a sparkling 10-1
record from last year and
returns a veteran team that
will have a nice mix of
young players as well.
Two-time All-State quar-
terback, senior Chad
Hempstead will be.behind
center directing the traffic
out of the Hornet backfield
in tonight's opening en-
counter. Hempstead
passed for 21 touchdowns
last year but admits it is a
pretty much given the
Hornets will be more of a
running team this year. "I
think everyone knows we
will pretty much be a run-
ning team," said Hemp-
stead in an earlier inter-
view.
Behind Hempstead will
be Eric McIntyre, who
rushed for over 1,500 yards
last season at the tailback
slot. McIntyre is one of
those backs who, when
you think you have him,
he is hard to bring down
picking up the extra yards.
Good blocking came from
Kyle Pearson on last sea-


son's district championship
team and it should be no
different this season.
Hempstead said Pearson
gives the Hornets strong
blocking out of the back-
field. However, Pearson at
fullback, is a capable ball
carrier as well, that Key-
stone may have trouble
containing. All total Coach
Pearson will return more
experienced backfields
than other teams in the dis-
trict. Joining McIntyre and
Pearson behind Hemp-
stead will be J.D. Richard-
son.
A good quarterback has
to have good targets and
eye to hand coordination is
a must in a good receiver.
Matt Milton will fill that
bill nicely. Milton returns
to the Hornets for his se-
nior season after sitting out
all but two quarters of the
2006 season with an injury.
Hempstead said the return
of Milton is a welcome
sight. "Matt works hard at
getting open," Hempstead
said. "It will be good to
have him back."
Milton said he was
equally glad to be back. "I
am ecstatic to be back this
year," said the senior re-
ceiver. "I am ready to play.
I am ready to get back out
there."

Chose softball

over basketball

by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

Doing the unexpected, senior Natalie
Land verbally committed to Central Flori-
da earlier this year, by-passing offers from
Florida and other Division I schools.
However, the slick fielding shortstop sur-
prised many by choosing to play softball
at the next level rather than basketball,
which many thought that would the sport
to take her to the next level. Land will
sign her letter-of-intent in November, the
first time a player can sign for next year.
Land said several reasons entered her
decision not to pursue basketball at the
next level but the main reason was the op-
portunity to go further in softball. "Bas-
ketball was taking its wear and tear on


my body," she said. "I just love to play
softball and that is what I wanted to do."
Land said the chances of playing both
basketball and softball were remote. "The
opportunity probably will be there but I
feel it would be too much. It takes dedica-
tion in softball and it would be hard for
me to do both."
Central Florida became her choice after
she visited the campus and fell in love
with the area. "I loved everything about
the campus and the coaches," Land said.
"They are a growing school and it is unbe-
lievable. The programs are good and they
have all the ingredients of a good school."
Land said she was not sure what posi-
tion she would be playing at Central,
Florida but, "talking to the coaches short-
stop is where I am projected to play," she

said. "Hopefully it will be at shortstop."
Land is expecting to become an impact
player in her freshman year. "They told

me to come to Central
Florida and if I came I
would be an impact player
the first year."
While Land is one of the
better defensive players to
take to the diamond, still
she said there was room
for improvement offen-
sively. "I will be facing
some really good pitchers,
so I need to get stronger
offensively," she said. "I
need to work on bat speed
and catching up with the
faster pitchers."
Coach Derek Garland
will return a veteran team
that advanced to the Final
Four of the state champi-
onship last year. Land is
optimistic that this year's
edition of Lady Hornet
softball can go even fur-
ther in the spring. "With
all the experience we have
coming back, I think we
definitely have a good
shot to win it all next
year."
Land still loves the game
of basketball and is excited
about the upcoming sea-
son. "I can't wait until bas-
ketball starts," she said.
"We have a lot of people
coming back and I think
this is the year for us. If

routes for the Hornets as

While Keystone Heights
brings strong competition
in game one of the 2007
season, Coach Pearson
says his squad is ready f6r
the battles on the gridiron
and will not be intimidat-


ed by the larger schools.
"We are going to have
some tough games and it
is not going to be easy to
win them all," he said, "but
our team is going to bring
each other along, compete
hard in every game and
give us a chance to win."
A large crowd is expect-
ed for tomorrow night's
gridiron battle.

everyone stays healthy
and we stay together as a
team, a state champi-
onship is not out of the
question."
Land had this to say
about certain people in her
sports career:
Derek Garland, girls
softball coach: "He has
done so much for me. It is
hard to put into words. He
has been very understand-
ing with me going back
and forth between basket-
ball and softball. He has
never put any pressure on
me. He has always been
there. When colleges
called in recruiting me, he
was there for me. He has
been great on and off the
field."
Jimmy Blankenship,
girls basketball coach: "I
have been with him since
the sixth grade. He taught
me basketball and he is a
great, great coach."
Taylor McGrew, former
Athletic Director: "He
never coached me on any
sport but he has been sup-
portive behind the scenes.
If I have ever needed any-
thing or asked any ques-
tions he has always been
there for me."
Natalie Land (herself):

Edwards a contender
Another former Hornet, Marcus Edwards, a wide out
for Southern Florida, will be in his junior season for the
Bulls and is in contention for one of the two outside
slots. Edwards will have former Hornet Darren Pole on
campus with him this season. Edwards was a two-time
all-stater at Lafayette.

Land takes over volleyball
The Lady Hornets volleyball team should be a strong
district.contender this season. New head coach Sonya
Land likes the chemistry of this year's team. The Lady
Hornets will return a veteran team and with the addition
of senior Natalie Land, I can see the reason for all the op-
timism. We'look forward to covering the volleyball team
this season.

I was told the Lafayette High School band had a great
summer in competition. We will try and catch up with
the music department and do a feature story on the
band. That will be interesting.
The junior varsity football team gets their season un-
derway next week. Coach Jimmy Blankenship should
have yet another strong unit on the field. I enjoy JV foot-
ball as well. I just enjoy being around the younger peo-
ple. Makes me feel young.
Until next week, good sports everyone and be good
sports.

basketball. Aggressive and
a team leader in softball."
Land will enter the game
of volleyball her senior
year, a game she never
competed in past seasons.
"I had all my decisions
(choice of college) out of
the way. It was my senior
year and I just wanted to
have fun, she said. "So I
decided to play all three
sports (softball, basketball
and volleyball). I want to
have a good time with it
and just enjoy my senior
year."
Another milestone in her


career could come this bas-
ketball season when she
will go for the state scoring
record in girls basketball. "I
look forward to it," she
said. "It is exciting to think
about. It is in the back of
my mind."
Land said while becom-
ing the state's all-time girls
scorer would be quite an
accomplishment, winning
a state basketball champi-
onship would be better.
"That is our overall goal,"
she said. "But if I get a
chance to break it, then I
am going for it."

that I am not, but I feel
this year could be our
year," she said. "I have re-
ally been irhpressed with
this varsity team."
Cara Young will shoul-
der the main setter's role
for Coach Land. "She is
going to help our team a
lot this year," said Land.
Kelsey Land is fully recov-
ered from last year when
she suffered a broken leg.
"She actually came back
from the injury at the very
end of last year," Land
said. "She will be a big
help to the team this year."
Coach Land said she
will use the Libero player
this year and Jennifer Gar-
cia will anchor that posi-
tion. "She is going to help
us there," said Land. "She
played there all last year
and did a good job. Also,
we have Carteshia Mack-
lin back and she is just a
freshman. She is going to
be one of our main spik-
ers.
The Lady Hornets team
will include two ninth
graders and two sopho-
mores. "Right now I feel
good about this team," she
said. "But, we will have to
wait and see.
Oak Hall and
Hawthorne will be new
members of the district
this season and Coach
Land views Oak Hall as
the team to beat for a dis-


trict championship. "They
are going to be the compe-
tition this year. But, also,
in the past we have had
problems with the Tren-
ton, Bronson and Bell," she
said. "Well, actually we
had trouble with all of
them. I am not sure about
Hawthorne and how good
they will be. Hopefully,
this year we can compete
and be right tip there in
the district. It is going to
be tough."
The Lady Hornets will
open their home schedule
tonight with a junior var-
sity match followed by the
varsity.

Ways of paying for college


Finding a way to pay for
college has become the
proverbial elephant in the
room for many parents,'
something they know
they'll need to figure out
eventually but something
they'd prefer to ignore or
put off for fear of what
they might find. Recent
projections from The Col-
lege Board@ don't figure to
erase any of those sleepless


nights, either. In the
2006/07 academic year, tu-
itions at both private and
public institutions in-
creased by an average of 6
percent (give or take a few
decimal points) and citing
national 10-year averages
for tuition increases, The
College Board expects
those increases to remain
steady. That means, in 18
years, the cost of a college


education will, in the best
case scenario, nearly triple.
Such a reality is frighten-
ing for most parents, who
would be wise to not only
start saving for college the
moment their child is born,
but also begin searching
for ways beyond saving
that can help as well.
Pass the buck. Grants
and scholarships are the
holy grail of tuition help.

That's because neither
need to be paid back.
However, putting all your
eggs in the scholarship
basket is a risky venture,
be it an athletic or academ-
ic scholarship. Of all finan-
cial aid given out each
year, less than 50 percent is
grants or scholarships. It's
not uncommon for even
the best students or ath-
letes to receive partial
scholarships, so chances
are strong you'll need to
come up with some, if not
the majority of your child's
tuition.
Start a savings plan.
College savings plans can
differ greatly, but all have
one thing in common: they
provide flexibility when
it's time for your child to
make a decision. With
money in the bank, chil-
dren can base their deci-
sion more on where they
want to go than where fi-
nances dictate they can go.
When starting a college
savings plan, consider
everything from ,potential
tax implications to any fees
that might arise if money
is withdrawn early to how
much controlyou'll have
over the money while
you're saving. These vari-
ables can differ quite a bit
depending on which plan
-you choose, so do your re-
search.
Borrow, borrow, bor-
row. Some parents are
skeptical of taking out
loans to pay for college or
putting their children in a
position to have a large
sum to pay back once they
graduate. But college loans
aren't necessarily the alba-
tross many think they are.
Repayment schedules can
be laid out in ways similar
to a mortgage, where a
lump sum is borrowed up
front and then paid back
over a long period of time.
Graduates who make all
their payments on time
will also see their credit
score benefit. And parent's
needn't worry too much
about placing a loan repay-
ment burden on their chil-
dren. In 2004, the U.S. Cen-
sus Bureau reported that
college graduates between
the ages of 25 to 34 earned
roughly 70 percentmore
than people of the same
age who had completed
only a high school diploma
or. had just a general
equivalency diploma
(G.E.D.). Sowhile loans
might put your child in
debit, those loans are sure-
ly worth it when consider-
ing the benefits their de-
gree will provide.

Hey Kids: Protect Your Eyes During Sports Play


The number of kids playing organized sports is on the rise and so to
is the number of sports-related injuries. What many players, parents
and coaches do not realize is that the majority of injuries occur during
practice and not during games, making it crucial that kids wear
protective equipment for practices and games alike. Proper protection
for these athletes should include not only helmets, knee and elbow
pads and mouth guards, but protective eyewear as well.
More than 600,000 eye injuries related to sports and recreation
occur each year. Of these injuries, 42,000 require a trip to the
Emergency Room, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission. Flying objects are just one of the hazards of sports. A
large number of injuries occur from finger pokes and jabs from arms
and elbows. Throw together a couple of overzealous players and a
potential collision could occur. Even sports that seem relatively
harmless can actually be harmful to the eyes.
But more than 90 percent of all eye injuries can be prevented with
the use of appropriate protective eyewear, says Prevent Blindness
America. And proper hygiene and vision care, such as yearly
examinations and proper cleaning of glasses and contact lenses can
ensure that kids protect one of their most valuable tools ... their
vision.
Today, protective eyewear is becoming commonplace for any kid
who picks up a ball, stick, racquet, or dives into sports play. In fact,
without having to worry about eye injuries, both players and parents
can focus more intently on game play and of course winning.
Whether a child is an after-school jock or a weekend warrior, here's
a listing of some of the popular seasonal sports activities that present
a risk for injury, which can become much safer with protective
eyewear.
Autumn
Soccer: Soccer is tremendously popular among today's boys and
girls, and chances are most households boast at least one soccer
player. Because soccer players are always moving, be sure to have all
eyewear fitted individually. Protective eyewear has straps that will
feature some sizing flexibility, so resist the urge to buy a larger size
that kids can "grow into." Re-evaluate sizing every year.
Football: A very high contact sport, eye injuries can occur but aren't
as common due to face protection offered by helmets. Still, eye
protection can be fitted under helmets, offering additional protection
against debris and potential finger pokes.
Winter
Basketball: Basketball is the leading cause of eye injury for players
ages 15 to 24. Research shows that 1 in 10 college basketball players
will suffer an eye injury each season. According to the National
Society to Prevent Blindness, almost 7,000 injuries were found to be
related to playing basketball. Finger poking is one of the more
common basketball injuries nationwide. Sports protective eyewear,
however, can help hardwood heroes avoid the perils of eye injury.

Spring
Baseball/Softball: Baseball is the leading cause of eye injury in
players 14 and under. This ranks baseball among the highest sports
for eye injury risks. Players are contending with a high-speed
projectile (the ball), swinging bats and potential sun glare. That's a
recipe for eye injuries. Regular shades or other "street" eyewear
won't provide proper protection. Due to the potential velocity of a
baseball or softball, nothing can guarantee complete injury
protection, but sports protective eyewear can greatly lessen the risk of
serious injury. The lenses are made from polycarbonate, which are
impact-resistant and have inherent UV protection.


.'. .










IIk1..






Soccer is just one of the many sports children enjoy that can be made safer
with sports eye protection.

Lacrosse: Men's and women's' lacrosse differ in regard to how much
physical contact is allowed, with the men's teams being more contact-heavy.
Still, some form of stick checking and blows from lacrosse balls make sports
eye protection a smart idea for players. The most common head/facial
injuries seen are-contusions about the face and eye orbit, creating the typical
"black eye." This primarily occurs in women's games because of the lack of
a hard helmet. Therefore, sports eye protection is mandatory for all players.
Summer
Tennis and other racquet sports: In a Canadian study, racquet sports
accounted for 24.5 percent of all reported eye injuries and 8.8 percent of all
eyes blinded by sports. In a U.S. study, racquet sports were responsible for
40.3 percent of sports eye injuries seen in a private practice, and 23 percent
of all admissions for hyphema (bleeding inside of the eye) to the
Massachusetts Ear and Eye Infirmary. The high speed at which balls are
served or struck during these sports can make eye trauma common, even
though many people do not associate these sports with injury.
Shopping for Eye Protection
Liberty Sport provides a line of high-quality protective sports eyewear.
They are tested to withstand the ASTM F803 impact resistant standards for
racquetball, basketball, handball, squash, paddleball, soccer, and tennis when
fitted with the appropriate polycarbonate lenses. They're also the only
protective sports eyewear to receive the American Optometric Seal of
Acceptance. Additionally, almost all corrective lens prescriptions can be
incorporated into stylish sports protective eyewear. To learn more, visit
www.libertysport.com.

PORTABLE GENERATORS!


Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and.other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also, create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.


SWhen operating a generator:
Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator

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


Dear Classified Guys,
So far I've survived my recent
divorce without becoming bitter.
After springing it on me that she was
leaving, my wife took anything of
value from the house and moved a
few states away. Surprisingly, I man-
aged to keep a positive attitude.
However, there is still one asset hold-
ing us together, our house. With the
recent real estate market, it hasn't
sold as quickly as I hoped. Since we
have both relocated now, I took the
time to clean out the rest of the
house. The few pieces of remaining
furniture were junk and the closets
just had stuff neither of us wanted. I
thought this would help our situa-
tion. Yet after my-wife visited the
house, she called me to say that I
shouldn't have packed up what was
left. She says the house will never
sell empty. I'm wondering if A
she may be right in this
case. Should I go unpack
the leftover furniture and
boxes of stuff or will this house
sell just as quick if it's empty?

Cash: Keeping a positive attitude
while experiencing a divorce is impor-
tant, so you're on the right track. It can
be even more difficult when the two

Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


parties don't agree on things.
Carry: Divorce aside, a well-furnished
house is typically more appealing to
prospective buyers. The furniture helps
them to imagine what the rooms may
look like with their belongings.
Cash: However, people often have
too much furniture so removing some
can make small rooms look larger or
more spacious. The goal is to make a
house look full of life and inviting to.
buyers.
Carry: Now if you and your ex-wife
took most of the good furniture and left
only remnants behind, then the house
may look lifeless anyway. A wobbly cof-
fee table'and a tor chair won't make a

buyer feel welcome. In that case, you're
probably better off cleaning out the
house and making it look presentable.
Cash: If your home is completely
empty, then everything needs to be in
good shape. Nicks in the wall, cracks
in the ceiling, or missing trim suddenly
become noticeable when there is noth-
ing in the room. Take a little time to
finish those details..
Carry: Even though the inside of the
house may be empty, it's important to
keep the outside looking nice. Mow
the grass, collect the mail, and make the
outside look like it hasn't been neglect-
ed. A well-landscaped home will have
a much better chance to sell.


Welcome Home
Staging, it's not just for Broadway
shows. ,Staging a home for sale
involves refreshing the interior to give
potential buyers a great first impression.
Some research estimates that it can add
3% to 10% to the value and result in
selling it up to 32% faster. Although the
interior is important, you may want to
start at the front door. Buyers often
spend slightly over one minute at the
entrance while the showing agent gets
the key and unlocks the door. That's
estimated to be about 5% of the time a
buyer will spend at your home.
Two-isted
While it takes two people to get mar-
ried, it only takes one to get divorced.
And the process of getting one is big
business. The work of marital law is
estimatedto be a $28 billion dollar
industry. While couples may spend
years saving their money, it can quickly
disappear with a divorce. The average
divorce involving attorneys can cost a
couple between $15 and $20 thousand
dollars. For some that may be enough
incentive to try marriage counseling.

Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today
announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product.

Shock Hazard Results In Recall Of Radio Shack Kits For Electrical Test
Meters
WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 2)-- More than 150,000 lead kits for
electrical test meters are being recalled by Radio Shack, of Fort Worth,
Texas, because they may pose a shock hazard to consumers. The recall is
being conducted voluntarily in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission. Radio Shack is a division of the Tandy
Corporation. Each kit consists of 11 separate pieces, including two
probes which are plugged into lead wire tips and used to test electrical
current. Each probe is designed in such a way that metal remains
exposed even when it is fully inserted into the lead wire tips, thus posing
a potential shock hazard to users. One consumer has reported receiving
a shock from the product.

Award-winning authors to participate in festival


The Librarian of Congress
and First Lady Laura Bush
invite book lovers of all ages
to celebrate the joy of read-
ing and lifelong literacy on
the National Mall on Sept. 29
The 2007 National Book
Festival, organized and spon-
sored by the Library of Con-
gress, and hosted by First
Lady Laura Bush, will be
held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.'
on Saturday, Sept. 29 on the
National Mall in Washington,
D.C., between 7th and 14th
streets (rain or shine). The
festival is free and open to
the public.
"This will be the seventh
year of this extraordinary cel-
ebration of the joy of reading
and the creativity of Ameri-
ca's writers and illustrators,"
said Librarian of Congress
James H. Billington. "The
National Book Festival
brings authors and readers to-
gether to share the stories
that touch their minds and
hearts. Tens of thousands of
book lovers see firsthand
how reading changes lives
and how our country, its citi-
zens and its libraries promote
reading in imaginative and
inspiring ways."
"The National Book Festi-
val welcomes all Americans
to the National Mall to cele-
brate reading and meet with
some of America's most-
loved authors from across the
country," said Mrs. Bush.
"Readers of all ages can dis-
cover the joys of new books


and fall in love again with

winners of the Letters About
Literature program will read
their personal letters to au-
thors who inspired them.
Sponsored by the Library's
Center for the Book with sup-
port from Target, this reading
and writing promotion pro-
gram invites young readers in
grades 4-12 to write personal
letters to authors, past or pre-
sent, who have changed their
views of the world or of
themselves. Each year, win-
ners are selected at the state
and national levels. As the
project's corporate sponsor,
Target awards the six national
winners and their parents with
a trip to the National Book
Festival to share their win-
ning letters with the festival
audience. "It is inspiring to
see the number of young peo-
ple whose lives have been
positively affected by a par-
ticular author or book," said
Laysha Ward, vice president,
community relations, Target.
"Through its comprehensive
support of early childhood
reading, including the Letters
About Literature program and
the National Book Festival,
Target is helping to instill a
love of reading in kids as the
foundation for lifelong learn-
ing."
The Pavilion of the States,
sponsored by the Institute of
Museum and Library Services
(IMLS), will highlight read-
ing, literacy and library pro-
motion activities in all 50
states, the, District of Colum-
bia and several American
trusts and territories. Repre-
sentatives from the states and
territories will welcome fami-
lies and children interested in
learning about writers and
reading programs nationwide.
IMLS representatives will
also be providing information
about its library initiatives, in-
cluding the Laura Bush 21st
Century Librarian Program to
recruit and educate the next
generation of librarians. The
Big Read programs in the
states, sponsored by IMLS
and the National Endowment
for the Arts, will be featured
in the pavilion.
In the popular Let's Read
America pavilion, there will
be a wide variety of fun-filled
reading promotion activities
developed by festival spon-
sors for children.
The Library of Congress
Pavilion will feature a variety
of interactive family-centered

tographs and valuable docu-
ments as well as the Library's
digital preservation program

vation developed for its new
Packard Campus in Culpeper,
Va. A group of veterans who
appeared in the Ken Burns

ries are told in the 2008 Vet-
erans History Project Wall

VHP materials in the class-
room will be showcased in a


Festival Young Readers' On- .

braries, schools and homes
across the country. The

casts of interviews with pop-
ular participating authors.
The Library will also present
same-day coverage of the

Trust partners with Alachua County on Barr Hammock Preserve


Submitted
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs recently
presented a $6.1-million
check to help Alachua Coun-
ty acquire the Barr Hammock
Preserve, a project that will
protect a variety of natural
and cultural resources and
provide educational and
recreational opportunities.
The county partnered with
Florida Communities Trust
(FCT) to purchase the 2,303-
acre property. Barr Hammock
will be a part of the County's
"Emerald Necklace" initia-
tive, a protected network of
trails, greenways and open
spaces that includes several
projects previously acquired


in partnership with FCT.
"Alachua County has con-
sistently demonstrated an
outstanding commitment to
providing greenspace and
recreational opportunities for
its residents and visitors,"
said Community Affairs Sec-
retary Tom Pelham, who
serves as chairman of the
FCT Governing Board. "1 am
pleased that Florida Commu-
nities Trust could once again
assist the county in its efforts
to preserve and protect some
of its precious cultural and
natural resources."
The Barr Hammock Pre-
serve is located in south cen-
tral Alachua County and is
adjacent to Paynes Prairie


State Preserve. The property
includes several high-quality
natural communities, and the
acquisition project will pre-
serve sensitive wetland areas,
wildlife habitat and several
significant archaeological
sites. Recreational amenities
on the property eventually
will include hiking trails,
wildlife observation plat-
forms and interpretive ex-
hibits.
Barr Hammock is the most
recent project acquired by
Alachua County Forever, the
county's land conservation
program designed to acquire
and protect environmentally
sensitive lands. Alachua
County provided a local


match of almost $4.1 million
for the acquisition, bringing
the total project cost to more
than $10 million.
Administered by the De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs, Florida Communities
Trust is a state land acquisi-
tion grant program that has
provided more than $650 mil-
lion to local communities to
preserve parks and recre-
ational space. DCA helps
Florida's communities meet
the challenges of growth, re-
duce the effects of disasters
and invest in the community.

da Communities Trust, please

Surfing sans sight: Blind teens learn to hang ten


By Nate Rice
CNHI News Service
GLOUCESTER, Mass. Imagine living
your life in complete darkness never
being able to see a sunrise or sunset. Now
imagine taking a leap of faith, and trying
to stand up on a surfboard and ride a wave
in that world of darkness. Impossible? Nol
quite. Instructors from Brickhouse
Boards, the Bass Avenue surf shop, took
seven blind teenagers from the Newton-
based Carroll Center for the Blind to
Good Harbor Beach and taught them how
to surf on Sunday. By the end of the day,
all seven teens, three with complete visual
impairment and four with partial visual
impairment, were riding the waves. _"It
was just literally the greatest experience
of my life," said Jamie Hosker, co-owner
of Brickhouse Boards and surfing
instructor. "I cannot see topping that
night. It was, and probably, will be, niy
greatest surfing moment." _Hosker, who
has surfed on some of the meanest breaks
in the world, including the North Shore of
Hawaii, was humbled by the teens'
determination. _"Somehow they'd find the
strength and courage to stay up," Hosker
said. "Their success was based solely on
their courage. It's proving to them that
there's nothing they can't do." _At least
two instructors were assigned to every
teen. One instructor, standing in waist-to-
shoulder-deep water, helped the teen stand
up on the surfboard, while the teen held
onto the instructor's shoulders, before
being launched into the wave. The other
instructor, standing closer to shore, was
the catcher, making sure that the wipeout
was as smooth as possible. _"I was
humbled by their faith in me to push them
safely into a wave and the intestinal
fortitude they displayed by not jumping
off at the first sign of trouble," Hosker
said. "We were really successful because
of our knowledge it was really
gratifying.' Shouts of joy could be heard
from the beach, each instructor voicing
their excitement from the salt water of a
successful ride by their surfer.
_"Everything went well for these kids,"
Hosker said. "They were just inspiring."
_Hosker was nervous and lost sleep over
the event the night before: The main
question he had resonating in his head:
"How exactly do you teach a blind kid
how to surf?" _"I couldn't imagine what
someone's first wave would be like, going
over the crest of a wave into darkness,"
said Hosker. "And if I couldn't imagine
what it would be like, how was I supposed


to give instructions on how to survi' e
such an even?." _At 3 p.m., Hosker .id
Brickhouse instructors gave a hands-on
instruction about the waves, safety
and how to ride a wave on dry
.land, before the teens took the
plunge into the cool Atlantic
t Ocean. By 5 p.m., the teens were
hanging ten. "Their sense of
balance was amazing," Hosker
said. "Their thought process was
really sharp." _They loved surfing
so much it was hard to get them out
of the water before sunset, Hosker
said. _The surfboards the teens used
were "soft boards," surfboards that
are about 9 feet long, 2 feet wide,
and have a soft surface to lie on. The
surfboards are made by Global Surf
Industries, the world's largest
surfboard producer. Hosker e-mailed
pictures and the story of the experience
with the blind teens to a representative e
from the.company. By the end of the
day, the pictures and story had circulated
throughout the entire company. The CEO
of the company saw the pictures and read
about the event, and personally e-mailed
Hosker about the amazing experience.
"This event was a thrilling experience for
all seven Carroll Teens students, as \%ell
as the organizers and volunteers who
donated their time and resources to make
it such a memorable day," said
Dr. Karen Ross, vice president of
educational services at the
Carroll Center for the Blind, in a
press.release. "We're already
looking forward to doing it again
next summer. This kind of activity
exemplifies the spirit, confidence
and motivation we try to instill in
our students through such Carroll
Teens programs. "_Hosker always
believed that big-wave surfers were
the bravest people in the sport, but,
after this experience, has completely
changed his view._ "Prior to this
experience, I used to think that the
men who ride mountains (huge wa\ es i,
the (big-wave surfers) Laird Hamilton
and Jaws crew, were the pinnacle of
bravery in our sport," said Hosker. "I
couldn't have been more mistaken. All it
took was one 14-year-old, visually-
impaired young woman, to demonstrate
to me what true bravery is. And no- I
see."
