For the first time in the
history of Lafayette Coun-
ty, a woman was elected
to serve as a judge on the
third judicial circuit in
2006. Leandra Johnson,
guest speaker during
Mayo Rotary's regular
scheduled meeting on
Wednesday, Oct. 3, han-
dles cases in six other
counties: Columbia, Dix-
ie, Hamilton, Madison,
Suwannee, and Taylor.
She spoke at length
about the "Justice Teach-
ing Project," and why
every community would
benefit from it. According
to Johnson, the program
educates students about
the judicial system and
how it works. "It is a pro-
gram that is very near
and dear to my heart,"
Johnson said.
The program, only a
few years old, was de-
signed in response to the
rise in the number of stu-
dents who have very little
knowledge about the
United States Constitution
and the three branches of
government, executive,
legislative, and judicial.
Part of the instruction
requires students to par-
ticipate in a "mock trial."
According to Johnson,
students are each given a

Share your
faith


I would believe if...


"If only someone would
come back from the dead
I would believe...!" Have
you ever heard someone
say that? As you reason
with them they think they
have all the answers.
So why don't these peo-
ple just say, "Yes," to the
truth as revealed in the
Bible? They are looking
for CONFIRMATION.
They claim that Christians
don't really know whether
or not heaven/hell exists
because their subsistence
has not been verified by
someone actually coming
back from the dead.
The Bible addresses this
question in a direct man-
ner in Luke 18:19-31.-
Lazarus and the rich
man. You say, That's a
parable. Notice as you
read, the Bible introduces
parables as such. In Luke
14:7; 15:3; 18:1, 9 each
time the story told is in-
troduced by such words
as, He spake a parable...
Not so with our passage
in Luke. Immediately be-
fore this text in Luke
16:18 the passage con-
cerns a man putting away
his wife. I doubt you
would be willing to say

that is a parable.
Jesus said, "If they hear
not Moses and the
prophets neither will they
be persuaded though one
rose from the dead" (Luke
16:31). If a person is not
convinced by the Word of
God he couldn't be per-
suaded by someone com-
ing back from the dead!
The "IF ONLY" crowd
needs to LISTEN! God's
Word is infallible and is
the answer to man's prob-
lems. Jesus came from be-
yond LISTEN TO HIM!

MDA again will offer flu


shots here to people with

neuromuscular diseases
Continuing a service it has provided for decades,
the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) again is
offering flu shots to people who have any of more
than 40 neuromuscular diseases.
Such muscle wasting diseases, especially those that
progress in severity, can damage muscles involved
with breathing. Catching the flu is particularly haz-
ardous for those with muscular dystrophies, spinal
day muscular atrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
and (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease).
on- Valerie Cwik. MDA vice president of research, and
ies- medical director, said, "Both adults and children with
p.m. neuromuscular diseases may already have weakened
ion respiratory systems. MDA provides flu shots to re-
on duce their likelihood of catching yet another possibly
me life-threatening illness."
iful MDA has three clinics in Florida where shots may
an be obtained, including Mayo Clinic and Nemours
at Children's Clinic in Jacksonville and Shands Hospital
in Gainesville.
Lis- For information about obtaining a flu shot for some-
n- one with a neuromuscular disease, call the MDA of-
fice in Jacksonville at 904-296-2562 or visit MDA's
act Web site at http://www.mda.org www.mda.org.
MDA is a voluntary health agency working to de-
feat more than 40 neuromuscular diseases through
ee programs of worldwide research, comprehensive ser-
vices, and far-reaching professional and public health
e education.

Social Security expedites disability

applications for America's "wounded warriors"


By Louis Sullivan
Social Security
District Manager, Gainesville

Men and women serving
in the U.S. military who be-
come disabled while on ac-
tive duty are receiving ex-
pedited processing of dis-
ability. claims f;omn Social
Security. The expedited
process is for military ser-
vice members who were
disabled on or after October
1, 2001, regardless of where
the disability occurs. Peo-
ple in the military can apply
for and receive benefits
even while receiving mili-
tary pay.
To make things easier for
our service men and
women, we've developed
an easily accessible website
all about' benefits for
wounded warriors.
Whether you're stateside or
deployed abroad, just visit
"http: / /www.socialsecuri-
ty.go4 / woundedwarriors"
www.socialsecurity.gov/ w
oundedwarriors. The web-
site has everything you
need to know about Social
Security antd military ser-
vice including a link to ap-
ply for disability benefits
online.
As Social Security Com-
missioner Michael Astrue
said, "I want to assure the
brave men and women of
our Armed Forces and their
families that they will not
have to wait for these need-
ed benefits. Expedited pro-
cessing is just one way So-

military personnel how
much we appreciate their
service in defense of our
freedom,"
Once the application for
Social Security disability
benefits is taken, it is
uniquely identified as be-
ing from a U.S. military ser-
vice member, and it is expe-
dited through all phases of
processing, both in Social
Security and the state Dis-
ability Determination Ser-
vice, where the actual med-
ical determination of dis-
ability is made.
Disabled military person-
nel may apply for disability
benefits at any time while
in active military status, or
after discharge, whether
they're still hospitalized, in
a rehabilitation program or
undergoing out-patient
treatment in a military or
civilian medical facility.
It is important to under-
stand that the definition of
disability for Social Securi-
ty is different from the def-
inition' of disability for vet-

County resident Bryan N.

Day. Throughout his tour
with Riverine Squadron 1
in Iraq, Petty Officer
Brackin conducted numer-
ous combat patrols along
the Euphrates River and
surrounding waterways.
"One of the best things that'
I experienced on my pa-
trols was getting to see the
countryside and all of the
ancient ruins of the Baby-
lonian civilization.
Many people live as they
did hundreds of years ago."
Brackin added that the
100+ degree heat as well as
the unrelenting desert sun


as expected. "The Riverines
did quite well in adapting
to the heat. We had kids
from Montana and Wash-
ington-out there with us,
and they handled the
harsh conditions remark-
ably easy."
Brackin's wife, Ginger
and son, Beau are elated at
his long-awaited return
from war. "We're just so
proud of him, and we're
thankful the Lord watched
over him during his tour."
The. Brackin family also

prayers, and showed sup-
port for him and his fellow
Riverines while on deploy-
ment.

PUBLIC NOTICES


IN NEWSPAPERS ...



Because good government depends on it.


*


Three-legged stool can't stand on two


My mom used to have a small,
three-legged wooden stool. I don't
remember the stool being used for
any reason, just something to set
a newspaper or magazine on for
a minute.
It was small and thus not
sturdy enough to hold anything
of weight.
But no matter if it was strong
and sturdy, the three-legged stool
was no good if something hap-
'pened to one of the legs. It couldn't
stand on just two.
You're probably already won-
dering what a three-legged stool
has to do with the newspaper
business.
Open government is a three-
legged stool.


It takes open meetings.
It takes open records.
It takes public notices.
Any of the three being absent
you don't really have open gov-
ernment.
I would wager that the news
side of newspapers thinks all of
government can be "open" if just
its meetings and records are kept
public. And I would wager an
equal amount that the advertising/
business side would argue without
public notices, government really
can't be open.
Like the old Certs breath mint
ad, "Stop. You're both right."
It takes all three. Together. If
one 'of the .three is missing, any
one of the three, open government


is off-balance.
Open meetings much can go
on behind closed doors and much
does. The law gives public agencies
the right to enter into closed meet-
ings under certain conditions. The
law limits the presence of people
at those meetings and nothing can
be finalized. Any final action must
be done in public.
Open meetings also give the
citizens the right to speak on a par-
ticular subject. Much like lobbying
in some respect but the comments
play an important part of a public
agency's decisions on most items.
Open records much like open
meetings, most records are open.
Those records can be closed to the
public under certain conditions


but the records are important for a
variety of reasons.
Often, government records will
reveal what has happened behind
the scenes, with agencies trying to
restrict knowledge of what has hap-
pened in certain situations. Maybe
it's a financial settlement with a
fired public agency employee.
Maybe it's what happened in a
court proceeding. Maybe it's just
simple communications between
agencies.
Open records are much more
than that, I know, but open records
are an important part of that three-
legged stool.
Public notices these probably
get overlooked when compared to
open meetings and open records.


Newspaper editorial departments
won't understand the reason for
them, why government agencies,
should pay to have information
published. Newspaper ad depart-,
ments will favor this one over'
open meetings and open records..
Those are good but with public
notices certain information has to..
be published and that information
could be very revealing.
On their own, each is impor-
tant and each plays a role in open
government government of the
people, for the people and by the;
people. True open government can
only be open with the three-legged:
stool in perfect balance.

Five questions and answers



about government public notices


Public notices pub-
lished in newspapers
provide citizens a win-
dow into government.
Most of the informa-
tion for the following
questions and. answers
comes from the book-
let "Public Notice: An'
American Tradition,
An Examination of
the Role of Newspa-
pers in Public Notice,"
published by the Pub-
lic Notice Resource
Center and American
Court & Commercial
Newspapers.
1) What is a public
notice?
A public notice is
information informing
citizens of government
or government-related
activities that affect cit-
izens' everyday lives.


2) 'Why do we need
public notices?
An important prem-
ise found in both federal
and local governments
is that information
about government ac-
tivities must be acces-
sible in order for the
electorate to make
well-informed deci-
sions. Public notices
in newspapers provide
this sort of accessibility
to citizens who want to
know more about gov-
ernment activities.
3) What is the histo-
ry of public notices?
The history of pub-
lic notice begins long
before the, emergence
of newspapers. The,
concept has existed
since early civiliza-
tions posted notices in


public squares. This
crude method -was
eventually refined with
the publication of the
first publication of the
first English language
newspaper in 1665 a
court newspaper called
The Oxford Gazette.
In America, the Acts
of'the First Session of
the First Congress in
1789 required that all
bills, orders, resolu-
tions and congressional
votes be published in
at least three publicly
available newspapers.
Upholding the pub-
lic's right to know has
been essential to our
country's way of life
since day one. Our gov-
ernment governs with
the consent of people,
and this consent must


be informed.
4) What are some
examples of a public
notices?
There are many kinds
of public notices. Pub-
lication of proposed
budgets for local- gov-
ernments, notices of
local government hear-
ings, bid notices, board
and agency meeting
minutes and pre-elec-
tion notices are just a
few examples.
5) Are newspapers
the most effective ve-
hicle for public no-
tices?
Public notices pub-
lished in newspapers
ensures readership by
those most likely to be
interested in or affected
by the notices. Plus, the
notices arrive at read-


ers' homes or places of
work in a newspaper
filled with local news
and information that
compels readership.
Newspapers are paid
to publish public no-
tices, which guarantees
that valuable newspa-
per space will be devot-
ed to notifying the pub-
lic. The system works
the same way in which
qualified vendors are
paid to provide goods
and services to govern-
ment entities, such as
contractors who build
schools and roads or
an office supplies store
that wins a bid to sell
office supplies to a
government agency.
In recent years, some
have questioned the
need to publish notices


in local newspapers,
saying that the Internet
has become so widely
used that it represents A
better way of informing
the public. The Internet

Lafayette closes out



Hamilton in three sets


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

Lafayette caught visiting Hamil-
ton County by surprise last week
and posted straight set wins in win-
ning for the sixth time this season.
The Lady Hornets won the straight
sets 25-14, 25-17 and 25-23. Senior
Natalie Land had 12 kills (unoffi-
cial) in the three matches and came
up with four nice digs as well.
In game three, the two teams
were tied six times when the Lady
Hornets took the lead for good at
24-23 and won 25-23. Hamilton
County had taken a 23-22 lead over
the host Lady Hornets but a side

out tied the game at 23. Cartaesha
Macklin, a freshman, served up the
final two points to give Lafayette
the third game win. Hamilton's first
lead of match three came at 17-16.
Behind Ashley Scaff, Hamilton ex-
tended their lead to 19-16 before a
net serve put the ball back in
Lafayette's side of the net. Lillie
Prine was outstanding on her
serves giving her team a 21-19 ad-
vantage.
Hamilton County tied the match
behind Samantha Lucas at 21 each.
Two side outs against Hamilton
made it a 23-23 score until Macklin
came up with the two winning
serves. Land had five kills in the
third match while Macklin added
three. Cara Young had five sets in
the match that included one nice
back set to Macklin,
The Lady Hornets won the open-
ing match rather easily, 25-14 be-
hind Tiffany Peacock. Peacock, sub-
bing for Macklin, served up the fi-


nal seven points in match two. The
Lady Hornets passing was a big
key to the first game win. Brandi
Marelene and Kelsey Land pulled
out some important digs as did
libero player, Kristen Millard.
Lafayette saw a sizable lead dis-
appear in the second match but
pulled out a 25-17 win. After going
in front 21-6, Hamilton County
stormed back behind the serving of
Lucas, to make it a 21-17 affair.
Two long returns by Hamilton
made it as 24-17 lead and the game
point came on a missed return by
Hamilton. In game two, Land had
two exclamation point kills. She led
a balanced Lady Hornet attack with
five kills in match two.
The Lady Hornets will return to
the court tonight on the road at
Branford. With two regular season
games remaining, coach Sonya
Land's team is readying themselves
for the upcoming district tourna-
ment to be held at Bell.

Lindsey Hamilton set
the tone for the final
match between visiting
Hamilton in game two of
volleyball efforts last
week. In game two, O'S-
teen served a. 10 quick
points to stake her team
to a 10-0 lead, a lead that
never was overcome by
Hamilton. The Lafayette
Lady Hornets JV squad
continues to play strong
volleyball as the regular
season nears a close.
The JV Lady Hornets
took match one 25-20 and
posted a 25-15 win in
game two. Hamilton,
falling behind 10-0, did
come back and make a
game of it but never
could close any closer
than 19-15 to Lafayette.
In the opening match,
Bailey Edwards tallied
five points in the win.
Bridget Powe and Lydia
Land both played strong
defensive matches for the
winning Lady Hornets.
The opening match was
tied 2-2 and again at 18-
18 before Lafayette
pulled away behind the
serves of Edwards. Shel-
by Wills would not let the
Lady Hornets run away
and contributed four
strong serves for points.
Heidi Harris, a sub for
Gabrielle Moody,- came
up three strong serves
that tied the game at 18.
In the second match,
O'Steen was the lead
server in running off the
10 unanswered points.
Her wicked serves gave
Hamilton County trouble
on their returns.. Kailey
Law made three point

Branford in district play, 47-0


by Ed Taylor

In taking on district rival Branford
(4-2) last Friday night, the Lafayette
Hornets (5-1) had to do so without a
healthy Eric McIntyre. However,
McIntyre, who was injured in the
Chiefland game two weeks ago, did
see very limited action and managed
to be the Hornets leading rusher in a
47-0 shutout of Branford. Fullback
Kyle Pearson filled in nicely for the in-
jured McIntyre finishing with 58-yards

S enior quarterback Chad Hempstead
completed nine of 18 pass attempts for
200-yards passing. He tossed for two
touchdowns. Jamal Reid was on the re-
ceiiving end one with Perez hauling in
th1e other. Perez had two catches for
87-yards on the night while Matt Mil-
ton had two catches for 81-yards. Reid
had two for 31-yards. Rhett Coleman
had one catch for six yards.
Coach Joey Pearsoi was pleased
with the effort his team
gave in securing the
win. "Branford has
been having a very
good year," he said.
"They came in here and
fought hard. It was a
big district win for us
I E over our rival. We were
glad to get the win. Eric
banged up his knee at
Chiefland, so, we were
hoping we could limit

Surrounded by a community that has embraced him
and shown an outpouring of love for him, coach Taylor
McGrew stood at the 50 yard line and was honored by
that same community last Friday night during half time
of the Lafayette-Branford game. I will have a full story in
next week's sports section along with photos. I counted
myself to have been privileged to be part of that special
night as fans crowded the Dale Walker Stadium in an
outpouring of love.
I have known Coach for only a short number of years
but feel like I have known him all my life. Coach Mc-
Grew is an inspiration to all who get to know him. While
he has "retired" from the athletic side of it, still he finds
time to make the games the kids are taking part in. Pub-
lic announcer, Andy Hart, said he was "...a mentor, fa-
ther, husband, friend, athletic director, coach, teacher and
one of the best men I know." I have to agree. While I was
watching the activities on the field I tried to call to mem-
ory others who I know that were a Taylor McGrew type.
One who was an inspiration to others. Who only thought
of others and was not just a basketball coach but an edu-
cator first. Oh, I did remember some, about two or three,
but none I could think of that could really fill the "big"
shoes of one Taylor McGrew.
In just brief conversations around the football stadium
with others, I never talked with anyone, who either
played for him, was taught by him or just knew him, that
did not say he was a better person because of Coach Mc-
Grew. Oh, I know I am not writing anything others do
not already know. To me, in just the short time I have
known him, he is a wonderful human being with a love
for Lafayette High School and the kids who have passed
through its doors like no one else could have. He told me
he had no intentions at all of staying in the teaching field

longer than 10 years. Well,.
he has been going for the
past 30 and, I believe I
speak for everyone, we're
hoping he goes for another
30. Thanks Coach for all
the positive influence you
have had over young men
and women's lives. More
next week.
I wanted to mention this
in an earlier column of
mine, but space would not
allow me to do so. But I
just want to take my hat
off to another swell per-
son, Andy Hart. Andy,
who handles the PA work
at the home football
games, has no equal any-
where else when it comes
running the PA.
He really puts a lot into
his position. Andy will
make sure all are recog-
nized that can be. He in-
troduces the cheerleaders,
several times. "Let's hear
for my cheerleader-
ssssssss!" You have to love
the way he handles him-
self in the booth.


At Chiefland three
weeks ago, he doubled as
the scorer for the Hornet
team. I listened to him as
he mumbled under his
breath, "I don't know if I
can keep up with all of it
or not." He never did an-
swer himself back but just
went on and did an out-
standing job. We appreci-
ate you Andy and all you
do for the kids today.
Hey, it will not be long
until it is football playoff
time and that is always an
exciting time of the season.
I look for the Hornets to
finish 9-1 during their reg- #
ular season. Coach Joey
Pearson and his staff has
the Hornets'playing good
football right now and
look for it to continue on
into the playoffs.
I like the sign the cheer-
leaders displayed just be-
fore the football team ran
onto the field last Friday
night against Branford.
"This one is for you,
Cory!" The game was ded-
icated to junior Cory

the game this year. Cory
led the team through the
banner and onto the field.
That was just great and one
of the many highlights of
the night. There is n ot
much that can compare to
Friday Night Football at
the local stadium any-
where in America. Until
next week, good spoi:ts
everyone and be good
sports.


A ERIC MCINTYRE saw limited play-
ing time last Friday night against Bran-
ford. But he did see enough action to
score on this carry in the first quarter.
The Hornets shut down Branford 47-0
to improve to 5-1 on the season and
2-0 in district play.

downfield as Serigo Perez (2) gave
protection against Branford last Friday

and two touchdowns. Perez caught

team's 47-0 win. (pnois Dy Ea Taylor)

district run the rest of ih.e
way. He had a couple of.
big runs for us tonight."
. The Lafayette defense
shut the door on Branforcd
in limiting them to just 106-
yards on the ground. Mosi!:
of that yardage came on
two big runs by Tim Clark.
Clark broke away for a 29-
yard gainer and a 35-yard
run to finish with 85 for the
night. Thomas Byrd led the.
Hornet defense with nine
tackles and four assists (un-
official). Kyle Pearson had
six tackles and two assists.
J.D. Richardson had four
assists and three first hits.
Kris Pearson had three first
hits and three assists.
Freshman Alex Gresham
came up with five tackles
and two assists. Reid had
one interception for the
Hornets and sophomore
Brooks Laminack had the
other orne.
The Hornets lit up the
scoreboard with 8:12 to
play in the opening stanza.
Hempstead found Perez in
the flats and hit him with' a
pass completion for 72-
yards and a touchdown.


Blade Herring's point after
failed because of a bad
snap from center. Branford
got very little in their first
three possessions of the
game against the line of
Lafayette..
With 46 seconds to play
in the first quarter, McIn-
tyre scampered into the
end zone from 5-yards for
the second score for the
Hornets. McIntyre himself
set up the short run with
runs of 35 and 21 putting
the ball at the 5-yard line.
McIntyre ran the two-point
conversion to make it a 14-
0 game. _
With 10:55 to play in the
second period,- Perez took a
Hempstead handoff
around right end and
found all sorts of running
.room as he galloped 57-
yards for the score. Herring
added the point after and
the Hornets led 21-0.
Liafayette would score
tv vice more in the second
period to lead 34-0 at the
half. Hempstead hit Reid
on a 28-yard completion
witth 6:54 to play with Her-
ring adding the extra point
for a 28-0 score. With 41
seccinds showing on the


scoreboard Hempstead
again connected with Reid
on short yardage for a
touchdown. The 7-yard
completion gave the Hor-
nets their 34-0 advantage at
the half.
Branford came out and
put together their best drive
of the game at the onset of
the third quarter. They
marched from their own 28
to the Hornets 24 where the
drive stalled out. Moving
from their own 24, it took
Lafayette 15 plays to go 76-
yards for a touchdown that
concluded when Kyle Pear-
son plunged into the end
zone from the 2-yard line.
Herring's PAT made it a 41-
0 game. The final Hornet
touchdown came in the
fourth quarter when Lami-
nak stepped in front of a
Branford receiver for an in-
terception. He returned the
football 73-yards in beating
the clock.
Coach Pearson was
pleased that Pearson got
into the scoring column for
his Hornets. "Kyle does a
good job for us," he said.
"He is a senior and he has
paid his dues. He has done
a lot of blocking in his ca-


reer it is good to see him get,;
in there and run the ball. I
was pleased with our defen-
sive effort tonight. We felt
like we could put the pres-
sure on them and force
them into some mistakes,
three and outs, punts. Our
defense has been playing
well all year."
Lafayette is open this
weekend and will return to
the gridiron against Jeffer-
son County on Friday, Oc-
tober 19. A Hornet note:

knew that the
Lewis family lived
out towards ten
mile pond in what I '
knew to be the
Winstead house which sat
across the road from where
Leb Taylor lived until fire' '
destroyed his home there. I .
believe that Mr. Lewis was
a skilled carpenter and built cabinets and also boats.
Cosette told me that her grandmother owned that
place after she had purchased it from the Winsteads


and she had earned the money working at the sewing
room where the government recovery effort was provid-
img employment for many of the local ladies during that
era of the depression years.
Cosette wanted to know where the sewing room was
and since lived near there I had that knowledge and so I
told her. It has ceased operation soon after I got old
enough to ramble around the neighborhood but I re-
member laying in that empty tin building that sat on the
southwest corner of the lot occupied by the Chandler
Land house and directly across the street from the El-
liot's. It had been unused for a while but there were still
many empty thread spools lying around, a silent re-
minder of a bygone day.
The block to the south of there was owned by Henry
Land who was a timber man and right opposite the
sewing room was a building that had once been a filling


station which had since been converted into rental prop-
erty as living quarters.
The location of this old filling station building is an in-
dication that the highway leading out of Mayo and going
south went by there which is one block west of the pre-
sent state road. I have traveled that road many times
with my daddy before the paving of the new SR 51. It
zigged and zagged back and forth across the road as it
now exists before it arrived at Steinhatchee Springs
which is as far as we were going. If we were going all the
way to Dead Man's Bay we took the unfinished grade of


SR 51 which was eventually paved as it is now. The old
road mentioned continued on in a southerly direction
from Steinhafchee Springs and crossed the river at about
Iron Springs. I never went any further than that so I
don't know .
daughter, Doris Land operated a day nursery there
at one time and I don't know if that was adjunct of the
sewing room or not but it may have been there to pro-
vide day care for the ladies who, worked at the sewing
room as well as the other families in the community. At
any rate I was one of those who 'spent a little time there.
Behind that building was a small structure that served
as 'a comissary for Mr. Land's timber business employee's
at one time. Next, on the corner by.the present SR 51 sat
a nice home, long since torn down. Mr. Land moved his
family into this home after residing just south of.Mayo
on his timberland property for many years. I believe that
would have been in the late 30s.
Mayo had moved into the.20th century by installing a
town water system whereby the residents were supplied
with free flowing water for all their needs. That system
replaced the pumps that had bee previously used and of
course septic systems had to be installed for the "indoor"


plumbing and the days of the "outhouse" were history.
Those old hand pumps remained as they were though
and for many years one was visible on the back porch of
the Land home as well as many others around the town.
Nearby, at my grandparents home there was a pump on
a little platform near the kitchen that was connected with
the porch for easy access and it still worked when I was
a youngster.
Living nearby, across a vacant lot in front of my grand-
daddy was the Hughes family which sat di-
rectly across the street in front of Winderwee-
dles. Alton Hughes was the son-in-law of Mr.
Elliott and Mr. Elliot owned that whole block
and lived on the front of it facing the street k


that ran south of Mayo and continued on as the "Salt
Road." On the north side of that property up front oppo-
site the depot was Mr. Elliot's store and on the south cor-
ner sat his barn and stable where the horses were kept. A
few pennies would buy some delightful treats at that
store in the form of candy and of course there were the
other household staples as usually found in the other
stores in town.
In the Hughes family were two girls, Frankie Jean who
later married a splendid chap by the name of O'Neil
Johnson from Suwannee county now deceased, and the'
other girls was Lorraine and I don't know anything
about Loraine other than she left.Mayo after high school
and I only sw here once since then around 1958 when
she came for a visit: These were our close neighbors after
we moved by my grandparents. My sisters spent a lot of
time with the girls but for some reason I was not wel-
come as I recall. Being the only boy I don't guess I fit in
with their scheme of things........


READ! to break

the cycle of abuse

Innovative program takes

strides in preventing child

abuse and neglect
,Each time they escape into a book, children and fami-
lies involved in Children's Home Society of Florida's
READ! Program become one chapter closer to breaking
the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
Implemented in the Mid-Florida Division of Children's
Home Society of Florida's just over a year ago, the
READ! Program is designed to help alleviate the cycle
for increasing numbers of children and promote bonding
between parents and children by incorporating addition-
al literacy components into current services.
'"Little by little, we can chip away at this problem, and
hopefully we'll see the great impact this program en-
hancement has," says Jennifer Anchors, Executive Direc-
tor of the Mid-Florida Division. Already, nearly half of
the families participating in the program express an in-
creased love for reading, and 28 percent of parents indi-
cate an increased closeness with their children since be-
ginning the program.
READ! invites parents and their children to enjoy
books together, logging each day they participate. By fo-
cusing on literacy and continued education, the program
works to address the poverty issue, usually caused by a
lack of education, that's often present with many families
served by Children's Home Society of Florida.
Additionally, the program combats the illiteracy that
can cause frustration for parents, which too often trans-
lates into anger and abuse. READ! provides a non-intimi-
dating way for parents to improve their literacy skills
with their children, helping eliminate a key stressor in
the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
Participants receive a new book upon enrollment, and
families receive donated used books upon request.
READ! also encourages participants to take advantage of
resources offered at local libraries; since beginning the
program, 43 percent of participants who did not have a'
library card prior to enrolling now have one.

Halloween safety tips for pets


Courtesy of Petfinder.com
A pack of ghosts and goblins at your
door can scare your pets, but ghouls are
not the only thing to beware of on Hal-,
loween. Kellyann Conway, director of ani-
mal training and behavior at Animal Plan-
et's Petvideo.com Pet Video and a certified,
award-winning trainer, offers these tips to
make sure everyone has a howlin' good
time this Halloween.
First, beware of unsafe holiday decora-
tions. Wires and electrical cords are an invi-
tation to your teething pets or those who
just like to chew on whatever is available.
Use a cord container to prevent wires from

being chewed or gnawed. Also, avoid dan-
gling decorations that may inentangle your
pets.
Carving a pumpkin is fun but placing a
candle inside of it may be hazardous to
your pet. Candles are easily knocked over
and can bum wagging tails, paws and
noses. So forget the candle and use a glow
stick or battery-operated tea light instead.
Keep your bowl ofcandy up and away
from your pets' reach. Most people know
that dogs and cats shouldn't have candy -
especially chocolate, which is toxic, but
even the candy wrappers can be hazardous
if swallowed. So remember, no matter how

much your pet begs for a sweet, no sharing.
If you think your pet has eaten something
he shouldn't have; contact your veterinari-
an immediately.
Before the trick-or-treaters begin, take
your dog on a nice'long walk. The exercise
will help her relax later. Make sure she's
on leash during her walk in case you en-
counter any early trick or treaters. Dogs cail
easily be "spooked" by costumes, especially
those with little people in them.
While most pets prefer to go au-naturel -
some seem to enjoy, dressing-up. If your
pet will be in costume for Halloween, make
sure it's safe and comfortable. Always

All the right,

reasons to

raise pigs
Are you looking for a pet
that's loving, energetic, and
.1J will eat just about anything
you feed it? The 2008 Old
Farmer's Almanac offers
tips on why a pig is consid-
ered one of the best farm
animals.
The pig is the friend-
liest animal on the farm by
far: always available for a
scratch behind the ears,
hardly ever moody, and
AX quick with a grunt of de-
light.
sel Food items that are no
longer fit for consumption
F by people or other-animals
*F (rancid milk, leftovers from
in the supper table, spoiled
;k! hay) are all delicious de-
lights for the accommodat-
ing pig.
Have a daunting pile of
winter manure in the barn
that needs to be addressed?
Poke some holes in it, fill
them with grain, and let the
pigs at it. You'll have light,
well-turned compost in a
month or so.
PORCINE FACTS
AND FIGURES
The fastest member of
S the pig family is the
warthog, which can reach
speeds of 35 mph. ;
Though "pigging out" is
M synonymous with gluttony,


the stomach of a pig is pro-
portionately much smaller
than that of a cow or sheep.
To find out how much
a pig weighs, measure its
girth (in inches) by wrap- ;
ping a tape measure around
the animal just behind the.
front legs. Then measure :,
the length from the ears to,
the base of the tail. The
pig's weight (in pounds)
will be equal to the square
of the girth,. times the
length, divided by 400. (If
math isn't your thing, buy a
hog tape at the feed store;
the calculations are built
into it.) -;

from The 2008 Old Farmer's
Almanac.

small crowd consisting of approximately 30 townsfolk, county officials,
bank employees, and family members gathered together for a special oc
casion in the lobby of Lafayette State Bank on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at
11 a.m. Presiding over the annual Granny
and Pappy coronation was Judge Dar-
ren Jackson, his first of many in the
years to come.
* -The recipients of this time-honored and cherished
tradition are Buck and Minnie Hatch who, for -
many years, have lived in Lafayette County.
After Judge Jackson read the oath of office
to the Hatches, Jim and Claire France,
2006-2007 Granny and Pappy, carefully
placed the decorative bonnet and kerchief
on them and congratulated them on their
achievement.
Afterwards, everyone followed Leta Hawkins,
a member of the Lafayette County Pioneer
Committee, into the bank's conference Vj F
room for cake and punch. Buck and .
Minnie cut the cake together.
Life in Lafayette County years : "'
ago, was different for Buck and
Minnie than it is today. Ac- "
cording to Minnie, many
things changed, but others
remain the same such as
some of the games they X4
used to play as school
children. Today, chil- '
dren still play ring. ,
around the roses and
hopscotch.
Buck was born and
raised in Hatch Bend.
As a young boy, he at-
,tended school there. Al-
though the wooden
building has been gone
for decades, it was a
place where he learned reading, writing and arithmetic. It was a one room school-house
called Walker Creek School.
The teacher; a strict disciplinarian,;' made sure all the children learned in school. Ac-
cording to Buck, any child, regardless of age, was punished for misbehavior. He said he
remembered a time when a student was whipped with a limb from a gallberry bush sev-
eral times in one day for unruly behavior.
- Minnie was born and raised in a small town called Shamrock, located less than a mile
north of Cross City in Dixie County. In 1950, she moved with her family to Lafayette and
continued her education in Mayo. She remembers when all the teachers and students
would recite the Lord's prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance everymorning before the
beginning of school.
Mayo was slightly larger in size business-wise, than what
it is today, according to Buck and Minnie. The town had
three grocery stores, two car dealerships, approximately

five gas stations in town, four to five cafes, and a
tractor dealership.
Also, every Saturday, a "free show" was pro- alias
vided at sunset while the grocery stores would ;
stay open for business until midnight. Accord-
- ing to Minnie, this allowed people extra time
to do their grocery shopping and still catch a 'L A
movie. Buck said the movies did not have
sound until sometime later.
Another time when the community came
together was when Buck's father and mother .
S. would invite as many townsfolk as -
they could to their home for singing, music,
S', square-dancing, and a delicious home-
cooked meal. According to Minnie,
., Buck's father was very talented and
could play any instrument he could
S lay his hands on.
'. ~In 1947, when the Hal Adams
.: Bridge on SR 51. was dedicated, the
Hatches were present along with a
large crowd of townsfolk and visitors
from Suwannee County and other neigh-
boring communities.
Buck and Minnie remembered
their parents as being very lov-
& ing, kind, and always found
S ; ways to provide and take
care of them and their
S.. brothers and sisters, espe-
cially through the diffi-
S. '. cult times. For example,
SMinnie said her mother
S' .," ," always found time to *
S, pray, and her father
t made sure the family
went to church.
"I think it is an honor
to be chosen to represent
our county on Pioneer
.,, .' Day," Minnie said.

R.O. Ranch camping, trail riding

open during Mayo Pioneer Days L.
) % ? "; : ";' : Iowa'


The R.O. Ranch is pleased to an-
nounce it will provide camping and
trail riding opportunities for equestri-
ans during the Pioneer Days Festival
scheduled for October 13-14 in Mayo.
Located 12 miles from downtown
Mayo, the ranch is located on public
lands owned and managed by R.O.
Ranch, Inc., a nonprofit corporation,
and the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District.
The ranch has quickly become a pop-
ular destination for riding clubs and
other equestrians since the recent open-
ing of the Crossway Branch Trailhead,
with three trails and over 14 miles
available for day-use rides.
Ranch manager Ron Clayton says the
property will open for camping and
trail riding from Thursday,-October 11
through Sunday, October 14, but notes
that since there is no water, electricity
or restrooms (except portajohns),
campers should either bring self-con-
tained RVs or be prepared for primitive
camping.
Proof of Coggins also is required for
entrance to the ranch.


On Saturday, October 13, riders are
welcome to join in a 12-mile ride from
the ranch to downtown Mayo, and to
participate in the Pioneer Days Parade.
Riders will depart the ranch at 7 a.m.
and the parade starts at 10 a.m. Those
who want to participate in the parade
but 'do not want to ride to town can
meet at the staging grounds in town.
After the parade, riders who return to
the ranch for the night can enjoy a quiet
evening around a bonfire.
Future plans for the ranch and eques-
trian center include a visitor's center, an
entrance road from Highway 51, a 30-
unit RV campground, and a challeng-
ing 19.5-mile Steinhatchee River Trail.
Covered and open riding arenas, as
well as covered stall barns for 300-horse
events are planned for phase two in
two to three years.
For more information about the
ranch please call 866.813.1617 or visit
www.roranch.org, where a map to the
ranch is available. For information

Air exchanger provides relief for


asthma sufferers


Kelly Jones has had to deal with the wheezing and
shortening of breath from her asthma condition ever
since she was born. Unfortunately she is not alone as
more than 20 per cent of American families have a
family member who suffers respiratory problems or
allergies.
Each year, more and more people are being treated
for asthma and allergy symptoms. It is no
coincidence that asthma cases have increased by
more than 100% over the past 20 years.
The fact is worsening asthma cases have coincided
with the emergence of the indoor air quality
problem. As the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) warns, indoor air quality can be 100
times worse than outdoor pollution.
Continuous exposure to contaminants and
allergens, like dust, dust mites, hair and pet dander,
and cigarette smoke can cause a variety of
symptoms such as headaches, chronic fatigue and
eye, nose or throat irritation. It can also aggravate
asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems.
Faced with her worsening condition, Kelly's
mother, Laura Jones, looked into finding an indoor
air quality solution for her seven-year-old daughter.
Rather than buying a portable air purifier, Jones
chose a more complete global solution: a Venmar air
exchanger with HEPA filtration, after doing some
research and consulting with his family doctor.
"The air exchanger enables us to control the quality
of the air in every ro9m in the house, not just certain
rooms, by filtering and adding fresh air throughout
our home," added Jones.
But there's more to an air exchanger than simply
changing the air, explained Gerry Gagnon, Product
& Market Manager for Venmar Ventilation. "It
reduces excess humidity by expelling moisture-filled
air outdoors several times a day. This can help
eliminate mould and bacteria-friendly environments,
make unpleasant odours disappear and protect
buildings from humidity-related damage."

*b F .


' ." ,


According to Gagnon the best way to achieve optimal air
quality in your home is to use HEPA filtration with
antimicrobial protection, combined with air exchange. ,
Together, they create the ultimate system for people who
want a clean and healthy environment. HEPA filters
capture 99.97% of all dust and particles as small as 0.3
micron (1 human hair = 150 microns). They can help
reduce allergy symptoms, asthma, recurring colds and
persistent coughs. In fact, HEPA filters are so effective;
they're used in hospital operating rooms and now in the
Jones home.
"It's one of the best things we've ever done as it has
made a real difference in my daughter's symptoms, she4
can breathe so much easier now and so can we," smiled
Jones. More information on air exchangers is available at
www.venmar.ca.

F i Lightning Season is here, and you need our protection:

SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM: This r\ -
program is aimed at helping to protect members ri'
homes and sensitive electronic equipment from
lightning strikes and other types of power surges -
and spikes. Power surges are sudden powerful '.* -
increases in voltage which can damage or destroy
household appliances and electronics like computers,
televisions, telephones, and more. Power surges or spikes can be
caused by lightning strikes, birds, animals and trees interfering with
power lines.

This package includes a surge protection device which attaches to the
base of the electric meter to reduce high voltage spikes and surges before
they enter the home. An additional level of protection is provided from
surge suppressers to be used inside the home. This kit is designed to offer
a basic level of protection for a household. Obviously, however, specific
needs will vary from family to family and members enrolled in this
program can lease additional surge protectors to suit their individual
requirements.

The cost of the basic package is $6.00 per month, with a one time $120.00
installation fee. The installation fee covers properly grounding your house
and installing the protection device within your meter base.

You are obligated to participate in this program for a minimum
three years.
Call 362-2226 for details.

Dear Classified Guys,
I love my fianc6, but she never told
me that all the hours we spent care-
fully creating our wedding registry
was really code for "all my stuff was
about to hit the curb". Okay, I exag-
gerate a little. All my stuff skipped
the curb and wound up at our garage
sale. It consisted of practically
everything I brought to the marriage.
Her plan was simple. First, trick me
into picking out items for our reg-
istry. Then, have our families pur-
chase it all as gifts. Finally, she
systematically removes all evidence
of my bachelorhood in an effort to
"make room" for the new wedding
gifts, or as she likes to call them:
"memories". Am I the first
man to crack this female r.
conspiracy? How many
men are out there suffering
in silence at a "just got married"
garage sale?
Carry: As a married man myself, I
can tell you that giving up a few things
is a small price to pay for a lifetime of
happiness. At least that's what my wife
keeps telling me! Although, there are
times I still miss my two-gallon beer
mug arid a comfy beanbag chair.
Cash: First off, congratulations on


& T YS"l




& Todd "Carry" Hoize \


getting married. Despite your concern
over your wife's conspiracy, you are
beginning a new chapter in life. Her
apparent attempt to remove your bache-
lorhood may simply be her way of
moving forward.
Carry: While you may miss your
oversized foam finger from the college
basketball game or the neon beer sign
that hung in the comer, your wife prob-
ably has a point in making room.
Cash: Let's face it. Most bachelors
think Dixie cups are a china pattern.
The majority of us could use a little
updating when it comes to home d6cor.
Carry: If you found that most of
your things wound up at the garage

sale, it's probably because they deserved
to be there. Besides, it's easier to let go.
of them now than move them from clos-
et to closet for the next few years.
Cash: While it is possible that your
wife has favored removing your items,
some of hers most likely made the
garage sale as well. It just wasn't as'
noticeable since they probably sold
quickly.
Carry: As you may suspect, you are
not the first guy to go through this type
of change. You will make it. Many
men have survived the "just got married"'!
sale and lived to tell about it. Althotigh
few have ever seen their fishtank lamps
again!


Gift Receipt
Few weddings would be complete
without the gifts. Invited guests can
spend hours picking out the perfect
present for the couple to be. There are
over 2 million weddings each year and
about 91% of all couples register for
their gifts. They too spend hours pick-
ing out the right dishes, appliances and
throw'pillows, but with good reason.
The average newlywed couple receives
gifts from nearly 200 guests that typi-
cally spent $70 to.$100.
Charity Bells
Today, the average age of a bride is
25 years old, and the groom, about 27
years old. At this age, many couples
already have plenty of household items.
So rather than collect another toaster
oven or fondue set, some are choosing a
new trend. In lieu of gifts, they are
incorporating charitable donations into
their day of celebration. With the help of
non-profit associations such as the IDo
Foundation, guests are encouraged to
give to the couples by donating to char-
ity. Now that's a great way to celebrate!

Cleaning Up
My husband and I met and married
in less than a month. It was after \e
.moed in together I realized %%e still
had our differences.
M. net husband still lived like a
bachelor. He left his clothes on the I
floor, towels on the furniture and
never did the dishes. One Saturday
on m. wa'v to %%ork. I asked him to
please make sure the dishes were
gone bN the time I got home He
agreed. "No problem!"
I returned home to find the counter
clean, the garbage empty and dinner
on the table In complete disbelief I
sat down, but noticed mN plates \%ere
a different pattern. "What are these'?"
I asked.
"The old one's %ere dirty." he
explained. "So I bought a new set at a
yard sale." (Thanks to Heather P.)

MANGO

TANGO
* Don't judge a mango by
its color that's not the
best indicator of ripeness.
To select a mango, squeeze
it gently fo determine
ripeness. A ripe mango
will give slightly, but not
be too soft. Ripe mangos
will often have a fruity
aroma at their stem ends.
a Firm mangos will ripen
over several days, becom-
ing sweeter and softer.
Once ripe, mangos can be
kept in the refrigerator for
up to five days.
* Learn more about mangos
, at www.mango.org.


PEANUT

POWER
* Scientific evidence
suggests, but does not
prove, that eating 1.5
ounces per day of most
nuts, including peanuts,
as a part of a diet low. in,
saturated fat and choles-
terol may reduce the risk
of heart disease.
* Peanuts can be enjoyed for
breakfast, lunch, dinner
and any time in between.
* For more recipes and other
information on USA-grown
peanuts, check out
www.nationalpeanutboard.org.


IRRESISTIBLE









With peanuts and mangos,

guilt is not an option. .
FAMILY FEATURES J
W ith cooler weather and families gathering indoors, fall is a perfect time to pull out the
measuring cups and baking pans and start baking. Fill the house with tantalizing aromas '
by choosing ingredients that add full-on flavor and great taste, such as peanuts and mangos. '
Best of all, your freshly baked treats can be good for you and your family. USA-grown '
peanuts, peanut butter and other peanut products have zero trans fats, are cholesterol-free
and have 30 essential nutrients, including vitamin E. Mangos, a tropical treat available year round, are an .
excellent source of vitamins C and A, both important antioxidant nutrients, and a good source of fiber.
