Lafayette County receives $400,000 FRDAP


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net

Florida House Representative Debbie
Boyd (Dem) and Senator Charles Dean
(Rep) met with county and city officials
to deliver two Florida Recreation Devel-
opment Assistant Program grant checks
totalling $400,000 on Thursday, Aug. 30.
Boyd and Dean first gathered with


town mayor Taylor McGrew, and town
council members Linda Cone, Ann
Murphy, and Ken Hewitt at Veterans
Memorial Park of Mayo at 11 a.m.
Boyd stated from experience the diffi-
culty of getting the necessary funding
for various projects as well as the bless-
ing of being able to give back to the
community. "I come from local govern-
ment and know how hard it is to get
funding for essential services like public


safety and recreation. It is also a good
thing when we can give that funding.
So now, we feel very fortunate to be
able to do this," Boyd said.
Boyd also spoke very highly of the
town park and said it is "a very good
beneficiary of this funding."
After talking with city officials, Boyd
and Dean briefly met with Ricky Lyons,
Lafayette County Clerk of Court, and
county commissioners, Ernest Jones,


grant


Charles Driver, Donnie Hamlin, Boogie
Pridgeon, and Jack Byrd in the commis-
sioners' meeting room at 12 p.m.
Lyons, on behalf of the county, said
how grateful we are to be able to re-
ceive the FRDAP grant. According to
Lyons, the grant will be used to up-
grade Edward Perry Sports Complex by
building a walking track around it,
adding basketball courts, tennis courts,
etc.

District Governor visits Mayo Rotary
"What you do for others enriches you."
IRA MIKELL

The Rotary Clubof i
Mayo on Wednesday,
Aug. 29, received a spe-
cial visitor whose lively
presentation earned him
many hearty laughs and
a long standing ovation
by his fellow Rotarians.
Before he took the
podium, District Gover-
nor of Rotary Interna-
tional 6940 P. C. Wu was
introduced by Assistant
Governor Diane Ching.
She spoke very highly of
Wu who has always
found time to further ro-
tary's growth and influ-
ence around the world.
"Rotary has greatly ben-
efited from his expertise,
his efforts, and his dedi-
cation," Ching said.
From an early age, Wu
was inspired by his fa-
ther and mother to pur-'
sue acts of kindness that,
would benefit himself as
well as others.
Both of his parents
were from China. His fa-
ther was originally from
Canton and his mother
came from Shanghai.
According to Wu, the
first teaching of how to
be a Rotarian came
when his father came

The Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office under the
direction of Sheriff Mc-
Call will continue to pro-
vide some kind of drug
prevention in our schools
even if the state decides
to do away with DARE.
Regardless of what our
elected officials in Talla-
hassee think they know,
our first responsibility is
to teach the children of
our community the dan-
gers of drugs. If we can
reach one diild, then that
is one child that will not
be in our criminal justice
system later.
Children are so im-
pressionable at younger
ages. So why not get
them now before a drug
dealer has the opportuni-


ty to tell them a lie later.
Sheriff McCall has stat-
ed since his election that
he would have a zero tol-
erance on illegal drug
users. The deputies of
Lafayette County have
upheld and supported
his stance on drugs
through their many ef-
forts in highway inter-
diction and undercover
drug purchases.
As a school resource
officer, I will do my part
to teach and warn our
young people about the
many dangers of drug
use. We live in a small
enough community that
parents seem to support
this program.
Scott Hamlin,
School Resource Officer

to Mickey Nyberg, is

is the leader of the dub

bers as Queen Mother.
The Steinhatchee Red'

of the Red Hat Society,

Lighthouse Christian announces


Saturday evening
Lighthouse Christian Center is excited
to announce Saturday evening services
beginning in September. Lighthouse will.
have a more contemporary service each
2nd and 4th Saturday, starting a 6 p.m.
Pastor John Whittington says this will be
a great opportunity for many reasons.
"This will be a chance for people to come
to church in a inore relaxed environment
than traditional church usually offers,"
said Pastor John. "Some people are nick-
naming this our 'flip-flop service' be-
cause of'the casual atmosphere.
We also have members whose work
arrangements make coming to church on
Sunday almost impossible," he contin-
ued. "This will be their chance to be part
of a worship service." On a final note
the Lighthouse Pastor commented, "Our
young people have been experiencing re-
vival for the past couple of months. We
hope that they, along with our other age


worship services
groups, will find the Saturday evening
service an opportunity to see revival con-
tinue."
The church states that this schedule is
not intended to replace Sunday Morning
Worship, but rather enhance the week-
end worship services. For information,
contact Lighthouse Christian Center,
(386) 294-3089. Or email,

and Peyton Place was porn.
For Ike was in the white
house, and Hoss was on tv,
and God was in his heaven,
in the land that made me,
me.
We learned to gut a muf-
fler, we washed our hair at
dawn, we spread our crino-
lines to dry, in circles on the
lawn.
And they could hear us
coming, all the way to Ten-
nessee, all starched and
sprayed and rumbling, in
the land that made me, me.
We longed for love and
romance, and waited for the
prince, and Eddie Fisher
married Liz, and no one's
seen him since.
We danced to "Little Dar-
lin," and sang to "Stagger
Lee" and cried for Buddy
Holly, in the land that made
me, me.
Only girls wore earrings
then, and three was one too
many, and only boys wore
flat-top cuts, except for Jean
McKinney. And only in our
wildest dreams, did we ex-
pect to see, a boy named
George, with lipstick, in the
land that made me, me:.
We fell for Frankie Aval-
on, Annette was oh, so nice,
and when they made a
movie, they never made it
twice. We didn't have a Star
Trek five, or Psycho two and
three, or Rocky-Rambo
twenty, in the land that
made me, me.
Miss Kitty had a heart of
gold, and Chester had a
limp, and Reagan was a de-
mocrat, whose co-star was a
chimp. We had a Mr. Wiz-
ard, but not a Mr. T, and
Oprah couldn't talk yet, in
the land that made me, me.
We had. our share of he-
roes, we never thought
they'd go, at least not Bob-


by Darin, or Marilyn Mon-
roe. For youth was still
eternal, and life was yet to
be, and Elvis was forever, in
the land that made me, me.
We'd never seen the rock
band, that was grateful to
be dead, and airplanes
weren't named Jefferson,
and Zeppelins weren't led.
And Beatles lived in gar-
dens then, and Monkees in
a tree, Madonna was a vir-
gin, in the land that made
me, me.
We'd never heard of mi-
crowaves, or telephones in
cars, and babies might be
bottle-fed, but they weren't
grown in jars. And pump-
ing iron got wrinkles out,
and "gay" meant fancy-
free, and dorms were never
coed, in the land that made
me, me.
We hadn't seen enough
of jets, to talk about the lag,
and microchips were what
was left, at the bottom of,
the bag. And hardware was
a box of nails, and bytes
came from a flea, and rock-
et ships were fiction, in the
land that made me, me.
Buicks came with port-
holes, sideshows came with
freaks, and bathing suits
came big enough, to cover
both your cheeks. And
coke came just in bottles,
and skirts came to the knee;

and Castro came to power,
in the land that made me,
me.
We had no Crest with flu-
oride, we had no Hill Street
Blues, the girls wore super-
structure bras, designed by
Howard Hughes. We had
no patterned pantyhose, or
Lipton Herbal tea, or
prime-time ads for con-
doms, in the land that made
me, me.
There were no golden
arches, no Perrier to chill,
and fish were not called
Wanda, and cats were not
called Bill. And middle-
aged was thirty-five, and
old was forty-three, and an-
cient were our parents, in
the land that made me, me.
But all things have a sea-

Retin-A. And they send us
invitations, to join A.A.R.

So now we face a brave

fruits and vegetables, most
people need to double the

Volleyball

JV fall in

straight sets
by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Ask first year coach Sonya
Land and she will be the
first to tell you that her ju-
nior varsity volleyball team
is a very youthful group
who shows a lot of talent for
the future but right now has
a lot to learn. The Lafayette
Lady Hornets displayed
that in dropping straight
sets to visiting Trenton last
week at home. The JV team
dropped a 25-13 decision in
match one and fell 25-4 in
the second match.
In the game match,
Kanece Richardson, a
sophomore, took charge and
served up the first 19 points
for the Lady Tigers. All four
of the Lafayette points came
on loss of serves by Trenton.
The final score does not in-
dicate the hard play of the
younger Lady Hornets as
they got good play from
several of their younger
players. Lydia Land and
Ellen Lashley had several
digs in the loss. Taylor Jack-
son had some strong returns
in falling to the visiting
team.
In the opening match,
Trenton rolled out to a 9-1
early lead but the Lady Hor-
nets were not ready to

Keystone halts long home winning streak for Lafay


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

The Lafayette Hornets football
team saw a long home winning
streak end at 26 games after suffer-
ing a 16-0 home loss to the visiting
Indians of Keystone Heights last
Friday night. It was evi-
dent that the Hornet
faithful had not wit-
nessed an opening game
at home like the shutout ..
in recent years. Key-
stone controlled all
phases of the game from
the first kickoff.
Lafayette, a high power
offensive team, found
the defensive line of the
Indians a little much to,
run against as well as
getting their passing
game going.
Lafayette finished
with only 122 total of-
fensive yards (unoffi-
cially). The Hornets HORNET I

for 51 yards passing. Matt Milton
had two catches for 27 yards with
Jamal Reid pulling in one pass for
21 yards. Eric McIntyre, who fin-
ished last year with over 1,500
yards rushing, found little running
room against the Indians defense
with 42 yards on just six carries.
Lafayette shot themselves in their
own foot with three crucial
turnovers, fumbling the football
away four times in the contest. Ball

possession proved fatal as well as
they ran only 29 plays to Key-
stone's 85 offensive plays. The Hor-
nets had possession,only once in
each of the third and fourth quar-
ters.
Keystone's "Dynamic Duo" of
Greg Taylor and Matt Story com-
bined for 213 yards rushing (unof-
ficially). Taylor finished with 93
yards oni 23 carries, scoring one
touchdown. Story totaled 120 yards
rushing on 24 carries.

evening gave the Lady
Hornets a good feeling as
they rolled out to an 18-8
lead behind the play of
Young, Marelene and
Kelsey Land. "We had to
reach down and come back
at that point," said Coach
Broker. "We had to see
what our team was made
of. They came back and
pushed it to 25 points in
which I am proud of."
"It was at that point I
thought we had the match
won," said Coach Land.
"We may have gotten tired.

some changes but didn't"

A 14-1 run by Trenton
gave the Lady Tigers the
lead with Alexis Dixon
serving up nine points to
give her team a 22-19 ad-
vantage. Lafayette nar-
rowed the margin to 22-21
behind a nice play by Car-
taesha Macklin but Trenton
held on for the final 24-22
win forcing a game five.
Trenton again had to
overcome a quick start by
the Lady Hornets who
ripped off seven points to
lead 7-2. Trenton rallied to
take a 10-9 lead behind
Amanda Schwieterman,
Trenton was not able to
handle a hard return by
Prine for a 10-10 tie. The
game was knotted at 11-11
before Lafayette took a 13-
11 lead. A couple of bad
sets proved costly for
Lafayette allowing Trenton
to tie the game at 13-13.
The Lady Hornets were not
able to handle White's
spike and a weak return
gave the Lady Tigers a 15-
13 win in the final game.
"I think both teams were
tired in the fifth game,"


said Coach Broker. That
showed in switching the
points back and forths. I tell
you, this Mayo team is a
much improved team from
what we have faced in the
past. They have four or five
hard hitters and they have
some young setters. They
are going to be awesome in

the ball at the Keystone 9-
yard line. On a first-and-
goal play, the ball was
fumbled on the exchange
at center with Keystone
coming up with the loose
ball. It took the Indians 17
plays as they marched to
the Hornets 16-yard line
where Mosley nailed a 21
yard field goal to give the
Indians a 3-0 lead. The
first half ended with Key-
stone in front 3-0.
Five plays into the third
quarter, Lafayette was

yards from their own 29

on a fourth and nine situa-
tion. On pass play action,
Mosley' went deep to tight
end Cameron Yarbrough
along the right side lines.
The ball fell incomplete
but a interference call on
the Hornets gave the ball
back to the Indians who
marched to the Hornets 3-
yard line where Story ran
into the end zone for the
touchdown and a 9-0 lead.
With 3:02 to play in the
third quarter, the Hornets
fumbled the football away
after just two plays. The
mistake led to the second
touchdown by the Indians,
who ran around and

Baldwin game this Friday
night. The reason for my
optimism is the Hornets
hurt themselves with their
four,turnovers on fumbles
that lead to each of Key-
stone's scores. Had they
taken better care of the
ball it may have been a
different finish. The coach-
ing staff will cure that
problem and I look for the
Hornets to be more into
the game this Friday night.
I was impressed with
the running game of the
Indians led by Matt Story
and Greg Taylor. But I was
equally impressed with
the play of senior Kyle
Pearson. Pearson, at a line-,
backer position, seemed to
be in on every defensive
play. I had him for eight
first hits and five assists.
Of course, my stats are not
official but I would say
very close to what is offi-
cial. Junior Thomas Byrd
stood out on defense for
the Hornets as well.
He has a Hornet
'Hart' ..
"Hereeeeeee comes the
Hornets..." Familiar words
at every Hornet football
game.
It was good to see good
friend Andy Hart in the
press box and behind the
PA system microphone
again. Andy is one of my
favorite announcers as he
likes to give recognition to
everyone, even the oppos-
ing team. I know he likes
those boiled peanuts.,
What a great job he does
and is a big part of Hornet
athletics at Lafayette.
Thanks Andy for the great
job you do and I know the


kids appreciate you very
much.
A Thriller ...
I have covered a lot of
girls volleyball over the
past years but I have never
sat through more exciting
matches than I witnessed
when thy Lady Hornets
met Trenton last week.
The outing went the limit,
five matches, before Tren-
ton came away with the
victory. But that is not the
point to be made. This is a
top of the echelon girls
volleyball team at
Lafayette High School.
They are a legitimate con-
tender for a district cham-
pionship and they are go-
ing to be a team to be
reckoned with this year.
Trenton coach Steve Bro-
ker put it all in perspective
when he said, "they have
the best hitters and setters
that I can remember them
having." Coach Sonya
: Land has her team playing
great volleyball and fans,
if you would come out,
will be treated to some en-
tertaining volleyball. I re-
ally like what I saw on the
floor that night. The squad
travels to Bell tonight for a
district game.
JV football...
Coach Jimmy Blanken-
ship and his junior varsity
football Hornets will open
their season at home
tonight against Trenton.
Kickoff time is set for 7
p.m. I am looking forward
to being there to cover the
game. I enjoy even the JV
games. It is always good
to see what is coming up
from the younger players.
Until next week, good
sports everyone and, remem-
ber, be good sports.

score. The extra point
made it a 16-0 game.
The only possession for
Lafayette in the fourth
quarter was a short one as
they fumbled for the third
time on the hand off with
Keystone coming up with
the loose ball. Later on a
Indian's punt, Ried fum-
bled the football for the
fourth mistake and Key-
stone came away with the
ball. The Indians ran the
clock out.
Keystone was flagged for
12 penalties for 65 yards.
Lafayette had 12 flags for
90 yards. Keystone had no
turnovers in the game
while the Hornets had
four. Hempstead was

from China to the United
States in 1930 to start a
restaurant in Savannah,
Ga. "My father, at the
restaurant, he was not a
Rotarian, but he taught
me how to be a good Ro-
tarian. And he did it by ,
doing this. Anybody who
came to the front door
who could not afford
food, he would feed for
free at the back door. He
learned to feed people for
nothing because when he
came to this great country,
he came with absolutely
nothing," Wu said.
His mother worked
with his father in the
restaurant, and during her
spare time, she did acts qf
kindness that also influ- '*
enced Wu to become a Ro-
tarian. According to Wu,
she loved this country so
much that she tried to
help other people immi-


grate to this country. Al-
though the process some-
times took between two
and five years to bring
one person here, Wu said
she was very successful at
it.
Years later, Wu experi-
enced a similar situation
when he worked in a soup
kitchen. At first, he
thought it was going to be
a short term project, but
once he started, he
learned it would be a very
valuable learning experi-
ence. "Within 30 seconds
of being in the soup
kitchen, I began to realize
who was the true benefi-
ciary. It was me. It wasn't
the people who benefited,
it was me. I ended up do-
ing it for five years not be-
cause of what they were
getting from me, but
rather what I was getting
from them," Wu said.
The person whofirst
brought Wu to Rotary was


John Fogg in 1994. Ac-
cording to Wu, Fogg is the
longest serving mayor of
Pensacola, he flew 200
combat missions in Viet-
nam, he won 14 combat
air medals, retired as a
lieutenant colonel in the
marine core after 20 years
of service, and participat-
ed in the Blue Angels
demonstration team.
Wu encouraged every-
one to continue to do
good to others through
Rotary and invite as many
as possible to join the or-
ganization. He also re-
minded the audience
there is no guarantee that
we may be alive tomor-
row and to take advan-.
tage of the time we have
today.
At the conclusion of his
presentation, Wu summa-
rized the meaning of ro-
taryiin a few words.
"What you do for others,
enriches you," Wu said.

New report reveals rapidly increasing

levels of drug infestation in our schools


Each fall, most parents
buy their children new
shoes, clothes and school
supplies, then send their
kids off to school with the
hopes that an adequate edu-
cation will result. A new
survey published by The
National Center on Addic-
tion and Substance Abuse at
Columbia University shows
that too many of our chil-
dren are getting all dressed
up to attend classes in a den
of drugs and alcohol.
The new survey, pub-
lished in August 2007, re-
ports that more and more
children in middle and high
schools are seeing drugs
used, seeing other kids who
are drunk or high, and are
seeing drugs bought and
sold on their school cam-
puses. Sincd 2002, 39 per-
cent more high school stu-
dents, and 63 percent more
middle school students at-
tend schools where drugs
are clearly present. Just
since 2006, these percent-
ages have increased 20 per-
cent for high school stu-
dents and 35 percent for
middle school students.
Students who attend
schools in which drugs and
alcohol are present are ten
times more likely to abuse
prescription drugs, four and
a half times likelier to use
marijuana, and nine times
likelier to use one of the oth-
er illegal drugs. The CASA
report cited a June 2007 re-
port from the Safe and Drug
Free Schools and Communi-
ties Advisory Committee,
under the U.S. Department
of Education, that stated, "If
students are using drugs or
alcohol (or are surrounded
by others that do) ... there is
a greatly diminished oppor-
tunity for them to benefit
from their schooling."
"It's important for parents
to know What their children
are facing in their schools,"


stated Ryan Thorpe, Direc-
tor of Admissions at Nar-
conon Arrowhead, one of
the country's leading drug
and alcohol rehabilitation
and education centers in
Canadian, Oklahoma.
"When parents are in-
formed, they are more able
to take appropriate and ef-
fective action. Students
must be educated on the
dangers of addiction to
marijuana, alcohol and pre-
scription and illicit drugs.
And no matter what ac-
tions schools take, that edu-
cation must start at home
with frequent, honest and
tolerant communication on
the subject of drug and al-
cohol abuse. To help with
this task, Narconon Arrow-'
head is offering parents
and other interested people
two free booklets to help
educate themselves and
their children on the prob-
lems associated with drug
use: 10 Things Your
Friends May Not Know
About Drugs and Healing


Addicted Lives."
To obtain these booklets,
call 1-800-468-6933 today.

cational services of Nar-
conon Arrowhead, call this

Seniors should embrace healthy aging


Never before has age been
more a state of mind than a
number. The amount of
healthy, active seniors con-
tinue to grow exponentially,
thanks to advances in health
and fitness and some per-
sonal intervention. The key
to feeling younger than
your years is to maintain a
healthy mindset, say ex-
perts. Plus, one should not
immediately associate any
of the natural signs of aging,
such as memory loss, fa-
tigue or extra aches and
pains, as indicators of a
more serious disease or seri-
ous impairment. It's proba-
bly just nature taking its
course.
According to the Healthy
Aging Campaign@, the
greatest enemy to the
healthy senior mind and
body is depression, not a de-
cline in physical ability or
memory loss as one might
believe. In fact, according to
the National Institute on
Aging, memory loss occurs
gradually, just as other
signs of aging up until age
70. Then there is a slight ac-
celeration of the process, but
nothing so life-altering that
a person will be impaired.
Also, memory loss in ad-
dition to other aging com-
plaints may be the result
of factors that can be fixed,
such as medication changes,
depression treatment or di-
etary modifications. Here
are some other ways to age
happily and healthfully.
Mental exercise
New activities, hobbies
and creative outlets are a
great treatment against de-
pression and "cabin fever."
Not only will you learn a
new skill, you may end up
meeting a new group of
friends in the process. Take
a class at a local university,
or join a church choir. Re-
search your family ancestry
or join a Scrabble club. The
opportunities for keeping
your mind sharp are end-


less. You can even enlist the
help of children or grand-
children to walk you
through some of the new
technological gadgets out
there that can challenge
your mind even further.
Physical activity
Regular exercise is even
more important for seniors
than some other age groups.
The risk of disease and lost
mobility is greater and the
positive effects are realized
more quickly, say medical
professionals. Incorporate
30 minutes of physical ac-
tivity into your daily rou-
tine. This doesn't necessari-
ly have to mean a trip to the
gym. Take a stroll around
the neighborhood with a
spouse or friend. Or, con-
sider parking further away
from the store and walking
the extra distance. Make ex-
ercise fun, like joining a
dance class, and you'll be
inclined to stick with it
longer.


Social fulfillment
You can feel even better
about yourself by involving
yourself with the communi-
ty. Volunteer work is very
rewarding. Consider teach-
ing youth a trade or hobby,
such' as how to play the pi-
ano. Religious organiza-
tions may need volunteers
for different events as well.
Participate in civic groups
and be heard in the political
realm of your community.
Remember, your views and
experience are important.
Vary your activities
It's easy to get stuck.in a
schedule or pattern of activ-
ity after retirement. While
routine can seem comfort-
ing, it can also get boring
and be far from challenging.
Seek out variety in your dai-
ly life. Experiment with new
foods, take a different street
home, or try a new restau-
rant that opened up. Variety
is the spice of life, after all-
so get living.

above-ground challenge
for three days. The group
is training as facilitators to
guide others through the
course.
"Awesome," said Vickie
Boss6 in describing the ex-
perience. "It was very
challenging. I was scared
to death. But, I learned a
lot about myself and my
co-workers," she said.
Bosses is no novice to ropes
courses and has trained on
similar obstacles four or
five'times. "It was very
empowering."


Elizabeth Gonzales said,
"It was physically and
emotionally challenging."
A first timer on the ropes
course, Gonzales said that
the team learned to set up
all the course elements and
make sure security proce-
dures were in place. She
admits that at one point
during the training she ex-
claimed, "This is harder ,
than having a baby!" Gon-
zales is a new mother.
"The trust and team build-
ing activities will really
help me in the NFCC tu-
toring programs," she
said.
"The experience took me
totally out of my comfort
zone and challenged my
mental and physical skills.


I am better off for it and
convinced that the kids I
work with as well
as adults will benefit from
the experience," said Lon-
nie Ford, C.R.O.P case
manager.
Cathy Simcox, dean of
career and technical pro-
grams, said, "The chal-
lenge course allows us to
use experiential program-
ming to promote individ-
ual growth and more effec-
tive organizations by com-
pelling participants into
doing things they never
imagined possible." In
other words, the ropes ob-
stacle course helps build
teamwork.
The course allows partic-
ipants to take risks in an


atmosphere of safety and
fun not necessarily phys-
ical risks, but emotional
and "perceived" risks
where the participant sees
the natural consequences
before them. Elements of
the course are both low to
the ground and as high as
35 to 40 ft. high. Safety is
key... many safety features
are built in.
Studies reveal that learn-
ers remember 80% of what
they do, 50% of what they
see and 20% of what they
hear. Exercises such as the
NFCC ropes course forge
experiences to enhance
personal growth, confi-
dence building and critical
thinking skills.
Other participants were


NFCC staff member Mary
Frances Mauldin, Mark
Joost of the Madison
County Sheriff's Office and
Alicia Cash, daughter of
EMS program coordinator,
Rebecca Cash. Brian Davis
with Project Adventure,
course designers, led the
training.
According to Simcox,
"We will be bringing in
NFCC adult and youth
leadership academy partic-
ipants to tackle the chal-
lenge course at the end of
the summer. After our in-
structors have logged plen-
ty of practice themselves,
we will open it for certain
NFCC classes, clubs and
outside businesses and
nonprofit groups." Project

Crack the code: Learn how to read food labels


By Julie Kirkwood
CNHI News Service
NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.
- As dietitian Lynn O'Reilly
wrapped up her nutrition tour
recently at Farmer Brown's a
small specialty grocery store
in Middleton, Mass. mur-
murs and hushed comments
passed among the dozen
women gathered around her.
The tour ended with soups,
which store employees make
fresh with a low-sodium base
'and no artificial ingredients.
feven nutritious soups like
these, though, have a major
drawback, O'Reilly said: They
tend to be salty. Low-sodium
;L


broth is good, she said, but it's
not the same as no sodium.
Soups almost always contain
salt. "If there was one that was
unsalted, you wouldn't want
it," O'Reilly said. This
prompted one woman to whis-
per to her friend, with a laugh,
that she wasn't sure that
there's any food that is good to
eat. That feeling seemed to be
mutual, even among these
women who are so devoted to
understanding food labels that
they spent an hour touring the
store with a dietitian. There's
just too much to think about,
Carole Goterch of Lawrence
said after taking the tour. Most


people know some basic nutri-
tion principles, she said, but
when you dig into the details
and try to pay attention to ex-
actly what you're eating, it
gets complicated. "I think, un-
fortunately, it's a full-time
job," Goterch said. "Nobody
has time to make it a full-time
job." One woman on the tour
said she spends three hours in
the grocery store reading la-
bels and trying to figure out
what to buy. Her son thinks
it's ridiculous, she said, but
she doesn't have a choice. She
has diabetes and her medica-
tions aren't working, so she
has to pay attention to what


Dietitian Lynn O'Reilly, right, points out things on the nutrition label to Dolores Driscoll while lead-
ing a group through Farmer Brown's Market showing what to look for when shopping for healthy
foods. Wednesday, July 25, 2007 Roger Darigrand EagleTr oune


she eats. Dolores Driscoll of
Danvers reads labels because
she's managing medical prob-
lems, too. She said she has
taken these dietitian-led gro-
cery store tours four or five
times and she still doesn't feel
confident about her ability to
buy the right foods. At this
particular tour, Driscoll said
she asked O'Reilly about the
fat content of ground beef
that's labeled "90 percent
lean." Driscoll thought that
was pretty good, but O'Reilly
pointed out on the label that
half the calories still come
from fat. In general, no more
than a third of a person's daily
calories should come from fat.
"You have to do this program
several times before you un-
derstand everything," Driscoll
said. "You just keep trying to
get it right." O'Reilly doesn't
disagree that choosing health-
ful foods is hard at first. But it
does get easier once you find
foods that you like and know
are nutritious, she said. "Once
they go through the process of
analyzing what they eat on a
regular basis, they really don't
have to go through this again,"
she said. That's why O'Reilly
does these grocery store tours
a couple of times a year, usu-
ally one in Gloucester and one
in Danvers. The recent tour in
Middleton was a special ap-
pearance, organized by Bever-
ly Hospital. "The more edu-
cated you are, the more confi-
dent you can be about taking
good care of yourself,"
O'Reilly said. "It's a very
good feeling to know that the
way you're eating is a very
healthy way to eat." Julie
Kirkwood writes for The Ea-
gle-Tribune of North Andover,
Mass.

Loving pets for you from the Suwannee County Animal Shelter


By Ana Smith
For the last couple of weeks we have been
blessed with several more adoptions than usu-
al. A couple of our strays were placed with
"rescue" organizations that deal with specific
breeds, and several we have featured in the last
two articles also found good homes.
We still have a large variety of dogs and pup-
pies, cats and kittens, ready to be adopted.
There are several Chihuahua-mix adult dogs
needing homes, some medium-sized dogs with
beautiful eyes and dispositions to match, large
dogs that will make good yard pets, and sever-
al small dogs that would be good inside, or


companion, pets.
We had intended to feature our shelter secre-
tary this week, but time got away from us be-
fore we could get all the information together,
so we'll feature her next week.
As of this writing, our volunteer meetings
have been stepped up as we prepare for our sec-
ond Expo to be held Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 3-
4 at Suwannee County Coliseum in Live Oak.
We are expecting it to be even bigger than last
year, and anticipate a grand turnout from you,
the citizens of Suwannee County in support of
our county animal shelter. If you are interested
in attending our volunteer meetings, please call

Did you know we now have a Web site? You
can find us by going to www.suwan-
neecountyanimalshelter.org. In addition to pic-
tures of some of the animals at our shelter,
there is also a volunteer sign-up form that you
can print and fill out and submit to us. We try
to update the photos as often as possible, but if
one of them touches your heart and you find
that it has already found a new home, there will
always be plenty more to choose from. You do.
not have to go to the "search web" line to type
in the website address ... go to the very top of
your opening "home page" and type it in that
very first space. It will bring up our website
right away.
Little by little we are gaining ground in our
expansion project, but we still need the moral
and financial support of the Suwannee .County
community. Please consider sending in your
donation to this desperately needed expansion
now. Every dollar helps!

YEAH! DOUBLE
PINK KNOCK OU
ROSES ARE HERI
Wow! The easiest rose in the world
to grow is no\\ in with double pink
blossoms! We also have red
doubles but if pink is your color

wait no more! Stop by today our
selection is fantastic!

TROPICAL
TRADITIONS!
Start a tradition that's good for \ou!
Adding nopical houseplants to \ our home
low\ ers your blood pressure, cleans the air
and gives .ou a beautiful decorator's touch'
Gorgeous, fresh houseplants are now in!


The number of strays being reported .and
-turned in continues to grow on a daily basis.
We are filled to overflowing, and have been for
many, many months. God willing, and with
your help, we'll be able to correct that situation
very soon with this expansion.
it is the humane and sensible responsibility
of all pet owners to have their pet spayed or
neutered, especially if that pet is kept outside,.
Every animal that we adopt out is now spayed
or neutered at the time of adoption. If you need
help with this expense, there is a program that
may help you. Ask your vet clinic about this
program, called "North Florida Paws." You can
also find out more about this program by going
to their Web site at www.northfloridapaws.org
or email them at nfpaws@bellsouth.net.
And 'don't forget to come by our shelter at
11150 144th Street, McAlpin, just off US 129
where the big county landfill is located. Watch
for our sign right next to the big county landfill
sign. For more information, please call 386-

Enjoy Eating While Getting Healthier


Many adults are aware that high cholesterol is one
of the primary risk factors for coronary heart disease
(CHD). For some people, the thought of lowering
cholesterol is seen as the end of the line for enjoying
good food. However, the American Heart
Association (AHA) notes that you can still enjoy the
best your favorite restaurants have to offer while
simultaneously lowering your cholesterol.
Steakhouses: Among the most popular style of
restaurants throughout the country, steakhouses
don't need to be avoided by those looking for
healthier food options. A few simple changes in
what you order can do the job. For example, instead
of ordering thick cuts such as porterhouse or T-bone,
order leaner cuts such as london broil, filet mignon
or tenderloin. As for side orders, substitute fried or
scalloped potatoes with a baked potato or even rice
and ask for your vegetables to be steamed and not
fried and you have a delicious and much healthier
meal in front of you.
Mexican: Few menus offer more delicious foods
than those at Mexican restaurants. Fortunately, those
menus typically offer healthy choices you might not
be aware of. Initially, before sitting down, request
that no fried tortilla chips be brought to the table.
Most Mexican restaurants offer large entrees to


begin with, so you won't be going hungry anyway. For
your main course, ask to replace flour tortillas with corn
tortillas, and choose grilled chicken or fish over carnitas
or chorizo. Another popular but unhealthy ingredient in
many Mexican dishes is sour cream. Replace sour cream
with healthier choices such as salsa, cilantro or pico de
gallo.
Italian: Italian cuisine is among the most delicious in
the world, making Italian restaurants some of the most
popular. While it's tempting to let loose and eat whatever
you'd like, you can still enjoy a great Italian meal without
risking a rise in your cholesterol levels. Rather than
cheese- or meat-filled dishes, choose pasta primavera with
fresh vegetables or pasta with white or red clam sauce.
Exchange a favorite parmigiana (floured, fried and baked
with cheese) dish with a marsala (sauce made with wine)
dish.
Chinese: A big part of making Chinese dishes healthier
is asking for main courses to be broiled, boiled or steamed
instead of fried. Also, egg rolls are popular appetizers at
many Chinese restaurants. Unfortunately, egg rolls are not
very healthy. Replace egg rolls or fried wontons with
steamed dumplings.
To learn more about developing healthy eating habits,

FRUIT


By Pam Campbell
Z id you know that we as Christians
are supposed to bear fruit? What
kind of Fruit tree are you? Do you
bear lots of fruit everyday or is
your tree sometimes a bit dormant? Is your fruit
good fruit or is it more on the evil side? God's
word tells us in Matthew 7:16-20 "Ye shall know
them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of
thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good
tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring
forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth
good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
When other people look at you can they tell that
you are a Christian? People that you have never
met before, will they know that you are a Chris-
tian? I don't mean by the way you dress, or the
Christian shirt or jewelry that you wear, will they
be able to tell that you are a Christian by the fruit
that you bear? Jesus tells us that when people
look at' us they should see the good fruits, the
Fruit of the Spirit.
In the Bible, we look at the book of Galatians
to find out about the Fruit of the Spirit. Gala-
tians: 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there
is no law." Fruit trees grow their fruit at certain
times of the year, and they grow in different cli-
mates. The Christian is to bear all of the Fruits
of the Spirit all the time, not just at certain times
or in certain places, such as church. Ask your-
self this, when you are in a line at the store and
it is taking too long, and you are running late,
can the cashier and others around you still see
the Fruit of the Spirit, the good fruit? Love, Joy,
peace, how about patience? I know that we all
get frustrated, maybe we get mad, things don't
always go the way we want them to, but really
we must learn to live as the tree bearing good
fruit all the time. Your life may be the only way
that someone will find Jesus, the only hope for
their salvation. You see many people won't go
to Church, or read the Bible, but they will watch
the lives of Christians to see if they really have
something different, something good, the hope
that they are searching for. They are not looking
for people walking around with a sign around
their neck that says they are a Christian, they

are looking for a Christian that has the Fruit of
the Spirit in every area of their lives. Jesus
wants us to have the good fruit, not the evil
fruit.
Again I ask you what kind of fruit tree are
you? Are you the kind that is full of thorns and
thistles, or dormant and not doing anything or
are you truly a Christian bearing the good Fruit
of the Spirit?
Let's take a look at what the Fruits of the Spir-
it really are. The first one is Love, love means
to have a strong affection for another, love for
someone or to hold dear, to cherish. Do we have
that kind of love for others? Do we show God's
love, do we cherish his people? Love is action,
it is showing that you love someone by the
things that you say and that you do. I Corinthi-
ans 13:13 says "And now abide faith, hope,
love, these three; but the greatest of these is
love." Love is the most important fruit of all.
The next fruit of the Spirit is Joy. Joy means a
state of happiness and to experience great plea-
sure or delight, to rejoice. Do you have joy?
When things go wrong, when your plans don't
turn out, or if you are sick, do you still have joy?
All the things that happen to us are temporary,
but our salvation is eternal, when we know Je-
sus. Real joy comes from knowing Jesus.
Peace is the next fruit of the Spirit. Peace is
something everyone seems to be looking for.
Peace means harmony in personal relations, a
state of quiet and security, freedom from upset-
ting thoughts and worry. Are there times that you
are afraid, when things seem to fall apart and you
don't know what to do? You can choose to let Je-
sus take whatever kind of fear or worry that you
may have. You can choose to let God's peace be
in your heart and mind. Others will be able to see
that peace, when you remain calm during a time
when others may have fear.
Longsuffering is the next fruit of the Spirit. Ac-
cording to the Merriam Webster dictionary the
term Longsuffering means "patiently enduring
lasting offense or hardship." If you take the word
apart you .find the words long and suffering.
Sometimes we may suffer a long time because of
another person. Longsuffering is having patience
even when someone else treats us wrong. If we
don't loose our temper, if we are patient with
others they will see Jesus in our lives.
Gentleness means to be gentle. God does not
want us to argue, or be angry with someone even

if they did something we did not like, he wants
us to treat others with the same gentleness that he
has for us.
Goodness means to love what is right and hate
what is wrong. If you see someone mistreating
someone just because they dress differently or
don't look the same, you know that is wrong. We
hate what they are doing, but we don't hate them.
We need to show them by our actions God's
goodness.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God. To
have faith we believe that what God says is true,
we believe that when we pray God will answer
our prayer. Others may have faith in us that we
will keep our word, if we promised to do some-
thing, they have faith that we will be faithful and
do what we promised. We should always be
someone that others can depend on.
The next Fruit of the Spirit is one that many
people seem to have forgotten in the world to-
day, Meekness. Meekness is another word for
humility. To be meek does not mean to be weak,
but to be humble. We are to be like Jesus, to
strive to be humble, not to be too proud, to put
others first.
Now we are to Temperance, the last of the
fruits of the Spirit. To have temperance means to
have self control. In every area of our lives we
should have self control, in our emotions, with
our temper, in our eating, or watching TV, in our
conversations, in every part of our lives every
day we should exercise self control.
The fruits of the Spirit our given to us by God
to show us how to live and have Jesus guiding
our life. When we learn to live by the fruits of the
Spirit, others will see Jesus in our lives and will
decide to follow him.
There is a great song that many of you may
know called "Can the World See Jesus in You?"
Think about it can the people that you meet in
the store, on the street, on the job, your family,
your neighbors, your friends, everyone you
come in contact with see Jesus in your life, in the
things that you say, and the things that you do?
We all need to take a look at our lives from
time to time and make sure that we are truly liv-
ing by the Fruits of the Spirit. So how is your
fruit tree doing today? Are you bearing good
fruit, the Fruit of the Spirit? Take time today to
pray and ask the Lord to help you bear the fruits
of the Spirit in your life. Let others see Jesus in
you.

FRUIT


By Pam Campbell
Did you know that a Christian is supposed to bear fruit? God's word tells
us in Matthew 7:16 "Ye shall know them by their fruits."
What kind of fruit tree are you? When other people look at you can they
tell that you are a Christian? People that you have never met before, will
they know that you are a Christian? I don't mean by the way you dress, or
the Christian t shirt or jewelry that you wear. Will they be able to tell that
you are a Christian by the fruit that you bear? Jesus tells us that when peo-
ple look at us they should see the: good fruits, the Fruit of the Spirit.
I n the Bible, we find of the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians: 5:22-23 "But
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, good-
ness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Fruit trees
grow their fruit at certain times of the year, and they grow in different
places. A Christian is to bear all of the Fruits of the Spirit all the time, not
just at church.
What are the Fruits of the Spirit? The first one is Love. Love is showing
that you love someone by the things that you say and that you do. Love is
the most important fruit of all.
The next fruit of the Spirit is Joy. Joy means happiness. Do you have joy?
When things go wrong, when your plans don't turn out, or if you are sick,
do you still have joy? Real joy comes from knowing Jesus.
Peace is the next fruit of the Spirit. Are there times that you are afraid,
when things go wrong and you don't know what to? You can choose to let
God's peace fill you.
Longsuffering is the next fruit of the Spirit. If you take the word apart you
find the words long and suffering. Longsuffering is having patience even
when someone else treats us wrong. If we are patient -with others they will
see Jesus in our lives.
Gentleness means to be gentle. God does not want us to argue, or be an-
gry with someone even if they did something we did not like. He wants us
to treat others with the same gentleness that he has for us.
Goodness means to love what is right and hate what is wrong. If you see
someone being mean to someone just because they don't look the same, you
know that is wrong. We need to show them by our actions God's goodness.
Faith means we believe that what God says is true, we believe that when
we pray God will answer our prayer. Others may have faith in us that if we
promised to do something, we will do what we promised.
Meekness is another word for humility. To be meek does not mean to be
weak, but to be humble. We are to be like Jesus, we should not brag about
ourselves.
Temperance, the last of the fruit of the Spirit. Temperance means to have
self control. That means we need to be careful not to lose our temper, to use
self control about how much TV we watch, or how much we eat.
When we learn to live by the fruits of the Spirit, others will see Jesus in
our lives and will decide to follow him.
There is a song called "Can the World See Jesus in You?" Think about it
can the people at school, in the store, your family, your neighbors, your
friends see Jesus in your life, in the things that you say, and the things that
you do?
So kids, how is your fruit tree doing today? Are you bearing good fruit,
the Fruit of the Spirit? Take time to pray and ask Jesus to help you bear the
fruits of the Spirit in your life. Let others see Jesus in you.

Dear Classified Guys.
I love shopping the classilieds, but I
have to admit. I hate to drive. While
most people I know commute 20
miles to work, I drive only two miles.
The grocery store is only one mile
away and all my relatives live within
three miles. I know I'm spoiled. So
when I read the classified, I look for
deals that are right around the cor-
ner. When they show up in the news-
paper, I'm the first one there to
snatch them up. But lately, reading
the ads isn't as easy as it used to be.
Before, I could tell which town peo-
ple lived in by the area code and the
three-digit exchange. Nowadays, I
see people using cell phone num-
bers and exchanges that I don't rec-
ognize. I can't tell if they live in town
or 20 miles away. I don't want
to drive that far. I might
actually have to buy gas!,
Is there any way to tell what
town people are from using
their cell phone number?
Cash: For the few miles you drive
every day, you could probably ride a
bicycle. That would definitely save
you from buying gas.
Carry: With so many cell phone
users today, there are more telephone


CLASSIRIED







Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


-- ,


numbers than ever. New exchanges-
have been added to many areas around
the country to keep up with the
demand. That is the trend you are
noticing in the ads.
Cash: Fortunately, those who adver-
tise in the classified tend to be local or
within the newspaper's circulation. The
new exchanges you are seeing may
simply be new numbers for the same
tqwns. To find out which area they
cover, check your local telephone book
or simply search online for a list of
"telephone exchanges".
Carry: It is also becoming popular


for people to use their cell phone num-
bers in their ads. Many people never let
their cell phone leave their side. For us
classified shoppers, that's a great bene-
fit. It's easier to talk with the sellers
directly instead of leaving a voicemail.
Cash: When it comes to cell phone
numbers, you'll find that most people
have one with a local area code and
exchange. It doesn't guarantee that they
will be less than two miles from your
house, but they should be fairly local.
Carry: And look at the bright side. If
you do have to drive more than two
miles, it's likely you'll pass a gas station.


Movie Phone
The telephone numbers 555-i)100
through 555-0u1109 are resert ed for fic-
tional uLse, like in TV s'ho- -. mo\ ies.
and adi\ertismenti- Hloo e' er in the
2(1)3 film, "Bruce Almight, ". makers
opted to u-se a ieal telephone n1inber
mirnu the area code. Since the film
was about a gu vho talks to God,
those around the country who had
matching telephone numbers were
inundated with callers asking to speak
with God. Due to the reaction, the
number was later edited to "555-0123"
for the TV and DVD versions.
Cell-dom Behaving
No device has permeated the lifestyle
of so many as the cell phone. It has
outpaced the sales of all other electronic
media. In the United States alone, there
are over 236 million subscribers to cel-
lular service, a tremendous growth
from the 4.3 million in 1990. With so
many users, poor cell phone behavior
has become one of the most common
complaints. In a recent study, 57% of
those surveyed have experienced people
in public who are swearing or exces-
sively loud on a cell phone.

Grounded
.Although my mom is in her seten-'
ties. she's been trying to keep up to
date on technology ithl her grand-
kids Despite her attempts. tihe lingo
continues to elude her.
For instance. she still thinks mni,
daughter has an "NIP-Free" plain er
and that iTunes is a nei\ srt le of
music on the radio.
Last week when \ e ere o er for
dinner, she sa\\ m ru17-year-old .on .
running around frantic looking for
something. When she stopped him
and asked hat w as wrong. mi\ son
told her. "I can't believe n, Grandma.'
I think I lost mx Blackberr "
"Oh that's okaN." she replied
attempting to calm him down. "I
have some fruit in the refrigerator!"

By Kristen Grieco
CNHI News Service

T he new owners of
Seahome will occupy
two homes on their
own private peninsula and
skip the 10-year town waiting
list for a mooring because the
oceanfront estate comes with
a fully licensed deep-water
dock all for the record price
of $11 million. _The price
may sound high, but it's a
bargain compared to what the
property was listed for in
2004: $17.75 million. Other
luxury homes in this
exclusive seaside town are
also being offered at reduced,
if multi-million-dollar prices
as even normally immune,


high-end home sales are
affected by the tight real
estate market. Seahome, at 16
and 18B Boardman Ave., was
sold earlier this month to
Mark and Becky Levin by
Wendy Bolland and Wendy
Slater.
The two homes on the
property the main residence
and the smaller "Tea House" -
sit on about 41/2 acres and
have a combined total of 32
rooms and 14,533 square feet
of living space. Mark Levin,
56, is the former chief
executive officer and a
founder of Cambridge-based
Millennium Pharmaceuticals,
which develops and markets
anti-cancer and other drugs.
Becky Levin is the founder,


chairwoman and chief
executive officer of Boston-
based Levin and Co., an
executive search firm that
specializes in recruiting for
life science and venture
capital companies; Melissa
Lindberg, director of
marketing at the MLS
Property Information
Network, which tracks home
sales, said the sale price of
Seahome is the highest
single-family price ever
recorded for the North Shore
by the Multiple Listing
Service.
The Levins are no strangers
to the luxury market. After
relocating from California
and purchasing a Boston
condominium in 1992, they


bought a historic 33-room
mansion in Middleton, R.I.,
near Newport, in 2000. Becky
Levin declined to discuss the
purchase of Seahome or the
couple's.plans for the estate
after initially agreeing to a
telephone interview. "She's
very happy with her decision
to move to Manchester but
would prefer to keep the
details of her personal sale
private," said Barbara
Vaughn, a representative for
Becky Levin. The couple is
known for furnishing their
homes with extravagant
amenities. A llama, two
peacocks and nine African
sika deer were acquired for
the grounds of the Levins'
Rhode Island mansion, a 2001


Business Week story on Mark
Levin noted. The couple spent
$750,000 on a grandfather
clock, two vases and two
commodes for their homes in
Boston and Rhode Island
after "Mrs. Levin directed
(her interior designer) to
travel around the United
States and Europe to locate
'outrageous' antiques for
purchase," according to
documents in a civil suit.
The suit was filed by the
Levins against the dealer who
sold the antiques, claiming
the goods were not as
advertised. The Levins lost
but have appealed. Prices
reduced Three years ago, the
Times reported skyrocketing
oceanfront home prices in


Manchester. Harborwatch, at
4 and 5 Norton's Point Road,
was listed for $12.6 million
and the Wyck Estate at 1
Smith's Point Road was on.
the market for $23.5 million.
Despite predictions of record-
breaking sales for the town
from real estate agents,
buyers never surfaced at those
prices.
'Normalh. market
conditions do not affect the
higher end," said Joe Velez,
owner of VCM Realty in
Manchester. "But this time,
they have because subprime
is spilling over into
everything." Rising rates of
defaults on subprime loans,

4j A rear view of the Seahome mansion shows the glassed-in conservatory. Jonathan Radford/Courtesy photo


The great room of Seahome's Tea House features a "disappearing table," which is raised or low-
ered by a hydraulic system, circa 1925. Jonathan Radford/Courtesy photos


which are mortgages given to
people with poor credit, have
caused some mortgage
lenders to file for bankruptcy
and have been blamed for
declining real estate and stock
markets, among other things.
Lanse Robb, a LandVest
principal and real estate agent
who works with many
corporate executives, said
high-end buyers usually don't
depend on subprime loans.
But their cash is often tied up
in investments that are
affected by the real estate and
stock markets, influencing the
price they can pay, he said.
It's not that luxury homes
aren't moving in Manchester
and across the state.


According to the town's
principal assessor, Ginny
Noyes Thompson, waterfront
homes are continuing to sell
at slightly above their
assessed values. Seahome, for
example, is assessed at $9.39
million.
The number of waterfront
property sales in Manchester
is on the upswing, Thompson
said, with a dozen waterfront
homes selling in the last two
years at prices ranging from
$2.7 million to $10.5 million.
"A lot of waterfront stuff is
selling and it's been going for
good money," said
Thompson. "We've had quite
a few big sales." Luxury
home sales are up throughout


the state, according to
Jonathan Radford, who
researches the luxury real
estate market and brokered
the Seahome sale.
So far in 2007, more than
260 Massachusetts homes
have sold for $1 million or
more, up more than 10
percent from the same time
last year, he said.
According to Radford's
statistics, excluding sales on


Martha's Vineyard and
Nantucket, at least five sales
have topped $10 million. The
most recent real estate
newsmaker was last week's
sale of Los Angeles Dodgers
owner Frank McCourt's
Brookline home to Red Sox
owner John Henry for $16
million. That estate was on
the market for $22 million
several years ago, according
to the Boston Herald. In
Manchester, Harborwatch
sold about six months ago for
$10.5 million after several
years on the market at $12.6
million.
The estate was assessed at
slightly more than $9.5
million. The Wyck Estate


remains for sale. Robb said it
is not unusual for high-end
homes, particularly historic,
custom or otherwise unique
dwellings, to remain on the
market for a year or more.
Robb, the listing agent on the
Wyck property, said while
several offers near the
original asking price have
come in, the Wyck
homeowners have chosen not
to sell yet.
The estate is now offered as
two separate properties, the 8-
acre main estate at $14.75
million and a carriage house
on 2 acres listed at $2.75
million. Robb added that
Manchester is still perceived
as a "great value" by those


who are looking to purchase
second homes but have had
no luck in, say, the Hamptons
or Martha's Vineyard. The
drop in price doesn't worry
Robb, who said the luxury
market remains relatively
strong considering that most
of his clients buying in
Manchester are not looking
for a primary residence.
"At the end of the day, what
are these people owning these
properties for? Nothing," said
Robb. "Considering that,
these are very big numbers,"

A national company market-
ing electrically adjustable beds
must alter the sales practices
used to. conduct its business in:
Florida under a settlement an-
nounced today by Attorney
General Bill McCollum. Craft-
matic Organization, Inc., a
multi-million dollar business
with operations and distribu-
tors throughout the United
States, the United Kingdom
and the Republic of Ireland,
must also pay $100,000 in
consumer restitution to Florid-
ians who were pressured into
buying beds they did not want
or who were otherwise de-
ceived by the company's sales
tactics.
"Salespeople should never
be permitted to harass elderly
Floridians, especially when
consumers are made to feel as
though the only way to evict
the salespersons from their
homes would be to purchase
these beds," said Attorney
General McCollum. "This set-
tlement will not only provide
for much-needed business, re-
form, but will also provide fi-
nancial support to a program
that exists to protect seniors
from these types of character-
istically unfair practices."
The Attorney General's Eco-
nomic Crimes Division has
been investigating the compa-
ny since 2004, examining alle-
gations that the company's
salespeople frequently employ
high pressure sales tactics to
compel senior citizens to pur-
chase the costly adjustable
beds. Craftmatic has also re-
peatedly claimed that the beds
* will resolve consumers' med-
ical problems, although these
claims have not been fully
substantiated by authorities.
S Throughout the course of
the investigation, the Attorney
General's Office received
more than 60 complaints,
many from elderly Floridians
who felt they had been pres-
sured into buying beds they
did not want and could not af-
ford. Attorneys with the Eco-
nomic Crimes Division were
able to facilitate consumer
restitution or other remedies,
often providing consumers
with a full refund and removal
of the unnecessary equipment.
One consumer, an elderly
Naples woman, contacted the

S'i ,'


Attorney General's Office
through a member of the me-
dia, claiming that she had not
only been persuaded to buy the
expensive bed, 'but that ;the
salespeople took her old bed
out of her house to make room
for the newer model. After re-
laying the woman's complaint
to the company, the Attorney
General's Office was able to
secure a refund and the com-
pany provided for the purchase
of a new bed.
Under the agreement, the
company will make substan-
tial reforms of business prac-
tices used in Florida. It will no
longer be permitted to repre-
sent to consumers that the
Craftmatic beds provide any
specific therapeutic benefit.
The salespeople must refrain
from engaging in high pres-
sure sales tactics and must ap-
ply limitations to their pro-
longed sales pitches and
demonstrations conducted in
consumers' bedrooms. The
company must also be respon-
sible for removing any Craft-
matic beds from the home of
any previous complainants
who wish to have the beds re-
moved from their homes and
provide for the acquisition of a
new bed if the consumer's pre-
vious bed was removed to
make way for the Craftmatic
bed.
In addition to the consumer
restitution and the changes to
the company's marketing prac-
tices, Craftmatic will pay
$20,000 to the Seniors vs.
Crime Program. This non-
profit organization helps pre-
vent the victimization of elder-
ly Floridians through educa-
tional efforts and a creative
peer-to-peer approach. Senior
citizen volunteers known as
Senior Sleuths assist the Attor-
ney General and law enforce-
ment by acting as their com-
munities' eyes and ears to re-
port new scams or unethical
sales tactics and by participat-
ing in undercover investiga-
tions of unfair or illegal busi-
ness practices. More than
2,800 Senior Sleuths staff lo-
cations throughout Florida
where complainants may
come in and discuss their
problem with the sleuths.
