In the house!

Years ago, at work, while on break, I
overheard some men talking about an
evangelist that had died, in a motel ', t
room, of acute alcoholism. I have known i-,
of a church that had a pastor, who made "
900 calls, using the church telephone! "
Church members of every stripe are en- .
gaging in depraved behavior in the .
Lord's house. The performance of many David H. Matier
church members is like what was al-
lowed by the Corinthian church (I Corinthians 5:1), be-
havior that wasn't even mentioned by those outside the
church. What an indictment! Behaviors not even named
among the Gentiles!
There is more wickedness in churches today than any
of us would like to admit (Jeremiah 23:11). What should
God's people do about it? Where should they start? As
the words of a well known song put it, "It's ME 0 Lord
standing in the need of prayer. Not my brother, not my
sister but it's ME 0 Lord." Christians need to remove the
"beam" from their own eye before attempting to take the
"mote" out of the other guy's eye (Matthew 7:3-5). Judg-
ment must begin at the house of God (I Peter 4:17)! Each
believer should examine himself (I Corinthians 11:28-32 -
take the steps to avoid being judged by God).
What needs to be changed? Change it before the Lord
feels it necessary to chastise you (Hebrews 12:5-8). and
if you ARE HIS CHILD chastisement will come! I realize
there are many in the house that are not part of the fami-
ly, who are illegitimate (John 1:12) but it would be as-
tot~nding how much of the wickedness IN THE HOUSE
could be removed by legitimate family members!

What a blessing it is to
live in a community that
opens their hearts to some-
one in need. The outpour-
ing of your loving and
prayerful support for
Cory's medical needs has
touched our hearts in a
way that we will always
remember.
We deeply appreciate
every act of kindness that
has been shown to us.
Most of all, we thank you
for your prayers that are
sustaining us now and will
continue to do so in the fu-
ture. May God richly bless

Pioneer Day A 4
By: Kaci Palomino

Every year in Mayo, on the second Saturday in Octo-
ber, we celebrate Pioneer Day. There are games, food,
music, shops, and the entire county comes out to the
town park! It is always fun to eat funnel cake while
talking to friends you haven't seen in years, but why
do we celebrate? We celebrate to remember when the
first pioneers traveled here and settled in Mayo. What
was it like for children my age in those days? What
challenges did they face? How was their average day
different than mine?
Homes Melton's Anthology of Lafayette County and
A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith gives a good
picture of what life was like for the pioneers. Most of
Florida's pioneers traveled here from Georgia, Alaba-
,ma, and the Carolinas in horse-drawn covered wagons.
They brought along seeds and crops like corn and
sweet potatoes. They brought frying pans, shotguns,
shells, tools, and dishes. They couldn't carry a lot on
the wagon, though, so they lived without luxurious
things. Televisions and cell phones that now seem to
be necessities weren't even invented yet! They often
used oxen to pull the wagon and help farm when they
stopped and settled in an area. A shelter called a lean-
to would be their home until they could build a perma-
nent house. Families built these huts out of pine limbs
and palmetto thatch. They may have put up hammocks
for the babies to sleep so they wouldn't be bitten by
snakes.
They learned how to farm the land and learned
which crops to grow in which places. Wild animals
were always a concern, though. Wild hogs would come
and eat crops, and snakes, panthers, bears and wolves
were always on the loose. The families would have to
lock up their oxen at night to save them from preda-
tors. When they finished their homes, they were glad!
After cutting logs, the pioneers had to drag them to the
site of their homes. They used cypress shingles, more
than 500, for the roof. It took about a year to build one
room, and then more for the furniture. They were al-
ways isolated because their neighbors were miles
away, and they might go months without seeing any-
one. They tried to grow crops for food, but often there
was no food available. So, they found other sources of
food such as flour from cattail roots and swamp cab-
bage. Life in those times was a survival of the fittest.
Later in those times was the Civil War. Soldiers
would break into houses, steal things, and burn the
homes, full of possessions, to the ground. Pioneers
came to Florida, thinking things wouldn't be as bad
here, but it was. The Rebels would burn your home
down, kill your oxen, and leave you if you weren't able
to prove you weren't a rebel.'The Federals would do
the same to you simply because you lived in the south.
This was very hard on the women. They worked hard
for what they had in their homes, and when their pos-
sessions were burned it was horrifying! Usually, the
men would leave to fight for the south and leave their
wives arid children alone. The Rebels would break in,
and unless the wife and children could prove the fa-
ther to be fighting for the south, they would be killed!
This crude treatment was just part of the Civil War.
After the Civil War, it took a long time before things
started getting back to normal. Towns and counties be-
gan, and Lafayette County was one of them. At that
time, Day was bigger than Mayo and had many busi-
nesses, schools, shops and homes. Many houses are
still there. Mayo was a small town with some houses,
shops, churches and two or three schools. Things have
changed. Mayo is now bigger than Day. Why?
I spoke with Ms. Elouise Green. She. talked about life
when she was a child. Ms. Green's family has been in
Day for generations. According to Ms. Green, her dad
went to school to be a principal. Before World War I,
he went to school through grade 10, took a test, and
graduated. Kids then didn't have to finish through
grade 12. If they could go to Madison or Gainesville to
take a test and pass it, they graduated. They could then
go to a normal school, a school for teachers, and could


start to work. Her dad went to school to teach, he
taught for two years before going to World War I.
When he came back, he taught in a one-room school-
house. In schoolhouses back then, they usually didn't
have a chalkboard. Schools that did have a chalkboard
did not have one for each grade; all grades shared one
chalkboard.
Being a teacher included teaching, custodial-work,
repairing leaky roofs, purchasing, etc. There were two
types of contracts. Either they had a three month con-
tract or they got a contract until the strawberries, string
beans, or other crops were ripe and ready for picking.
The children stopped coming to school and began pick-
ing them. Unfortunately, kids sometimes only went
through the 2nd or 3rd grades. Then they stopped go-
ing to school and stayed home to work on the farm.
Mr. Smith was also one of the first school principals
in Day. The occupation of principal was not like it is
now either checking on people and making sure
things ran smoothly. He was custodian, lunchroom fi-
nancier, school bus furnisher, and a devoted principal.
Ms. Green said he worked very hard for the school.
She remembers being a small girl attending that school
and bragging to the students of the other schools. The
Day school had the largest auditorium in the county,
the first school buses, and the first cafeteria in
Lafayette County because of her father. Later, they got
a wooden floor. Most schools had a dirt floor, so her
father was very proud.
Ms. Green says that the Day school was one of the
most up-to-date. Her father worked day and night to
accomplish that. He had a dried milk company and
sent the school dried milk to make drinks. The kids got
a free lunch if they brought crops and vegetables to the
cafeteria. Of course, not all children did so. So; Ms.
Green's father donated the food from his own crops.
Each child was to bring their own plate, fork, and
spoon, to eat and cup to drink. The lunchroom was
poor and didn't have enough money to supply them.
The school buses were prized possessions and a very
precious luxury! No other school in Lafayette County
had one. Before they had buses, many kids had to walk
three or four miles all the way to school every day.
Most families' horses worked on the farm so they did-
n't have extras to pull buggies to school. When it was
really cold, kids wouldn't go to school. Approximately
every 10 miles there was a school. this was so that kids
wouldn't have to walk so far to school and back every
day.
Textbooks cost a lot of money back then, so families
would buy them for the eldest children; then they
passed them down to the younger siblings or friends.
The principal, Ms. Green's dad, believed VERY strong-
ly in education. This was during the times of segrega-
tion. He would save all the textbooks left at school and
give them to all the poor children, black or white so
they could study. He also taught both African Ameri-
can and Native Americans living:in this area. Some of.
them were civilized and organized people, and some of
them were primitive. Many of the poor families valued
education. After all, a better education resulted in a
better job and helped them make more money. They
sacrificed everything they had for their kids to get an
education and finish school.
Many children's home life was rough. Their parents.
loved them, but they had to work. After school, kids
didn't play video games and watch tv. Girls typically
washed dishes and clothes, cooked, and cleaned. Boys
worked on the farms, milked cows, plowed, and
picked crops. Men hunted and fished, sometimes
bringing along the oldest boy. Women practically lived
in the kitchen. They cooked every day, cleaned washed
dishes and swept floors.
Ms. Green's family had some of the newest ad nicest
things first. However, she still didn't,live in conditions
as good as now. They got their first refrigerator when
she was about five. It was very different than they are
now, but people from around their area came to see
their refrigerator. Also when she was about five, wash-
ing machines became more common. Their family

bought one. Many families -. A
actually put theirs on the
front porch to show them
off because they were ex- -- _"
pensive. Those were the -.. _
main appliances.
When she was in junior '
high school telephone lines m
were brought to the coun-
ty, so her family bought a '
telephone. There needed tos ,.
be at least two families [
close enough in order for .1

party line. Also, when Ms.
Elouise was five or six, the neighbors had a radio. Her
brother was in a small 4-H Club music group, and they
would be on the radio. The neighbors, invited the fami-
ly to hear. Ms. Green said that it is something she will
never forget.
Her family didn't get electricity until she was about
seven, their lamp wasn't run by electricity, and the
brightness was about the equivalent of a flashlight. All
of the kids in the family would huddle around the light
at the table and do their homework. She said that she
remembers writing on the back of her older sibling's
papers, pretending that she too was doing homework.
Light and electricity were badly needed. Her father
went to town and bought a Delco. It was like a genera-
tor. It gave electricity to power lamps, washing ma-
chines, irons, refrigerators and to heat water.
As for transportation, they had a car. Her father and
Mr. Winderweedle were the first in their end of
Lafayette County with a car. There were always flat
tires, so her dad carried two or three extra tires with
him always. Ms. Elouise's father would drive to Mayo
or Day to go shopping. Her mom never went shopping.
There were about 25 stores in Day and several in Mayo
too.
Finally, the church was a vital part of everyone's life.
It was a place of worship, but it also served as a social
meeting place. There were several churches in
Lafayette County. In Mayo there were about three Bap-
tist churches, one Methodist, and a few others. In Day,
there was one Methodist, two Baptists, and one Pente-
costal church. Some people went to church, and some
had church come to them! There were circuit riding
preachers, which were preachers who went to people's
homes to preach. Ms. Green's great grandfather, Mr. Je-
remiah Smith, was one. He lived in Lafayette County.
Generations later, Ms. Green and her family went to
Brewer Lake Baptist Church when it was organized.
She still attends, and so do her brothers, Harold Lloyd
and Waymon Smith. When people were baptized, they
were baptized in the river. If they were saved in the
winter, they would have to wait untilfthe'weather was
warm enough to heat the water. People didn't have
many Bibles, either. It was very common for a family
to share one Bible. Records such as deaths, weddings,
births, etc. were kept in Bibles.
In conclusion, Lafayette County has come a long
way. From walking, wagons, and Indians to here,
through thick and thin, war and peace, every situation
has brought us here to the fortunate lives we are able
to live.
I now challenge you. When you see a senior citizen in
our community, hug them. They are the reasons you
are here, living such a blessed life.

Thank you is such a small word, but it has such great
meaning when it comes from the heart, and our hearts
are full of thanks and gratefulness to everyone who
came by, called, brought food, sent flowers, sent cards,
came to the visitation and funeral services and most of
all prayed for and with us during the illness and loss
of our Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmoth-
er.
Without God along with your love and support, we
could not have made it during this most difficult time
in our lives.
To all -of the staff at the Good Samaritan Center,
thank you for the care that you gave our Mom during
her stay there. To the Doctor's and staff at Shands at
Lake Shore, you were the best!!! We appreciate all that
you did for our Mother and our family. To Daniels Fu-
neral Home, thank you so much for being there for us.
We appreciate you making us feel so special.
To all of the churches who prayed for our Mom and
us, thank you. Your continued prayers will be great-
ly appreciated as we continue on with our lives with-
out our wonderful Mom, who always lived an exem-
plary life before each of us. Our loss is certainly Heav-
en's gain.. May God bless you all.

Reverse mortgages are
becoming popular. Many
seniors use them to supple-
ment social security, to
make home improvements,
meet unexpected medical
expenses or to simply en-
joy their retirement to the
fullest.
A reverse mortgage
works like a traditional
mortgage, only in reverse.
Rather than paying your
lender each month, the
lender pays you. These
payments are actually cash
advances against the equi-
ty in your home.
The most that can be
borrowed is based on the
age of the homeowner, the.
appraised value of the
home and the current in-
terest rate. Generally, the
more equity you have in
your home, the older you
are, and the lower the in-
terest rate, the more cash
you can receive. With most
reverse mortgages, you
may choose to receive your
payment as a lump sum, in
regular monthly payments,
as a line of credit you can
draw against when you


need cash or some combi-
nation of these options.
With a reverse mortgage
you continue to own your
home and are responsible
for property taxes, operat-
ing expenses and mainte-
nance. Because you make
no payments on the loan,
the new balance owed in-
creases each month as in-
terest is applied and
grows. Again, this is the
reverse of a traditional
mortgage where you
would expect the balance
owed to go down every
month.
To get a-reverse mort-
gage, you must be age 62
or older, and you must live
in your home and use it as
your main residence. Your
home must be owned free
and clear or have a small
outstanding mortgage bal-
ance that can be paid off
with the reverse mortgage.
Unlike traditional mort-
gages, there are no income,
employment or credit-
qualifying requirements.
However, there are differ-
ent types of reverse mort-
gage plans: FHA-insured;


lender-insured; and unin-
sured. Each type differs. A
reverse mortgage coun-
selor can help you decide
which type is right for you
and which lender offers
the program that best
meets your needs.
So what's the catch?
First, reverse mortgages
are generally more costly
to set up than other types
of loans. Second, a reverse
mortgage eventually must-
be repaid. Repayment is
due when you die, sell
your home, or no longer
live in it as your main resi-
dence. When it.is time to
repay the reverse mort-
gage, there is no hard and
fast requirement that the
property be sold, only that
the loan be repaid. Third,
your eligibility for state
and federal need based as-
sistance programs such as
Medicaid could be affect-
ed. Finally, a reverse mort-
* gage uses up the equity in
your home, so it reduces
.what you have left to leave
your heirs.
If you are interested in a
reverse mortgage, check it


out. As with any other con-
sumer decision shop
around and compare! Not
all Reverse mortgages are
created equal. They vary
substantially in how much
cash you can get, what
they cost and other fea-
tures. You can receive free
information about reverse
mortgages by calling
AARP at: 1-800-209-8085,
toll-free. Since your home
is probably your largest
single investment, it's
smart to know more about
reverse mortgages before
you decide that one is right
for you!

News from LE s


submitted by: Marilyn Israel
As the new school year began, and
first graders were getting back into their
new school routine, they had a surprise
visitor. Mrs. McCray, our school princi-
pal, visited their Science/Social studies
class to welcome each student back to
school.
As she visited in the classrooms, she
heard the students learning about differ-
ent science tools they would be using
throughout the year. She shared about
the different tools she uses everyday at
school. First graders were amazed at the
long list of tools she uses daily. She ex-
plained why she carries a radio and how
she uses her computer to do a lot of her
work. She shared with the students
that she uses a lot of paper and pencils
(just like first graders). Mrs. McCray ex-
plained that her telephone is a tool that


helps her talk with people about what's
happening.at our school. The students
were shocked that she uses so many
tools everyday on her job. Everyone
agreed that she is a very busy principal.
She discussed the importance of being
kind to others and always using good
manners. She reminded them that com-
ing to school was their job and they
should listen carefully to their teachers
and follow directions. She talked to the
boys and girls about how everyone at
school helps children learn and keep
them safe, even the principal!
Before she left the classroom, she en-
couraged them to do their best each day
and she would visit again soon. The
students are looking forward to her next
visit and shared with her about some
more new things they are learning.
Thanks Mrs.'McCray!

Lafayette County Schools, Project SAVE, Safe Schools Healthy

Students Initiative working to make Lafayette County Schools Safer


We join communities na-
tionwide in concern over
the latest incidence of
school violence in Cleve-
land Ohio. Inevitably, we
begin to wonder about the
safety of Lafayette County
Schools, our own children,
and what our local schools
are doing to keep them
safe.
I would like to take this
opportunity to let you
know that Lafayette Coun-
ty Schools is working hard
to prevent school violence
and to promote a healthy
environment in our schools
and community through
an innovative program
called Project SAVE (Ser-
vices Attributing to Valu-
able Education.)
Project SAVE provides 2
Prevention Specialists to
teach researched-based
drug and violence curricu-
lum to our children ages
preschool through high
school; after-school pro-
grams at Lafayette Elemen-


tary School, Lafayette High
School, Lighthouse Christ-
ian Academy, and Alms of
Bethel Community Devel-
opment, Inc.; a full-time Li-
censed Mental Health
Counselor, Behavioral
Therapist; and additional
law enforcement services
on campus during school
and after school through ,
the Lafayette County Sher-
iff's Department. To pro-
vide and ensure additional
safety of our students, the
project is also funding an
extensive fencing project to
enclose all campuses in-
cluding; Lafayette Elemen-
tary School, Lafayette High
School, Lighthouse Christ-
ian Academy, and the
Alms of Bethel Commnunity
Development Center After-
School Program. The part-
ners are also collaborating
to develop collaborative
crisis management plans to
enhance school and com-
munity safety. The partner-
ship is working together


and using programs and
services with proven track
records to provide our stu-
dents with a safer school
environment.
Lafayette County Schools
was awarded a 3-year,
$953, 963.00 grant in Au-
gust 2006 funded by the
U.S. Departments of Edu-
cation, Health and Human
Services, and Justice. For
eight years, communities
across the country have
been selected for these
grants to improve the way
schools, families, and the
community work together
in response to rising con-
cerns about youth violence
and school safety. This
Federal grant recognizes
that violence among young
people is caused by a mul-
titude of factors-including
early childhood, family life,
mental health, and sub-
stance abuse issues and
that no single action can be
counted on to prevent it.
Building on the Initia-


tive's collaborative frame-
work, Lafayette County
Schools Project Save's, mis-
sion brings together stu-
dents, parents, educators,
mental health agencies, lo-
cal law enforcement, faith-
based organizations and
other community-based or-
ganizations to talk about
violence prevention. The
members of the Lafayette
County Schools Project

From our readers


Dear Editor
I want everyone to know
that Congress has plans to
increase taxes on energy
companies. We should not
allow this bill to pass.
Adding taxes on our ener-
gy industry is not going to
improve the situation we
are in, but instead this bill
will raise costs. The provi-
sions included within this
bill are similar to ones we
enacted in the 1970s. We
had a terrible energy crisis
as a result of previous mis-
takes, and we do not need
to pass a bill that will
cause those circumstances
to repeat themselves. This
proposal makes it seem
that Congress has further
agendas that would not be
in the best interest of the
American public.
ILbelieve that Congress
needs to seek our alterna-

tives to this faulty propos-
al. We can easily find ways
to use our own resources
domestically to lower our
dependency upon foreign
oil, without increasing tax-
es. Our country is more
than capable of making a
change for the better. We
need to join together and
let Congress know that we
are against the passage of
this bill. Call your member
of Congress today and let
them know that America is
in need of a change for the

Community, school embraces




former AD on his special night


Taylor McGrew honored by students, players, fans


-. Coach McGrew began
the school year by retiring
as the Hornets Athletic
Director, a position he has
held for the past 12 sea-
Ssons (1985-2007). Howev-
er, it hasn't stopped him.
From continuing to sup-
SE port the kids in all the
Sr Sporting events this year.
He continues to teach at
the local high school.
Mike Harris, who re-
placed McGrew as the
schools AD, said Coach
5 Coa- McGrew was deserving of
any and all recognition
bestowed upon him.
"Coach McGrew is one of
the finest men I have ever
known," said Harris.
tim "When I came to work
Sphere in 1987 as a young
ad :r p man and coached football
Sand basketball I learned a
', lot from Coach. Not only
in coaching techniques
and fundamentals of the
S game but in how to han-
dle athletes."
The current Athletic Di-
LANCE BRASWELL, president of the Lafayette Quarterback Club rector said he has the "ut-
presented coach Taylor McGrew with a plaque honoring him for most respect" for Coach
his many years of service to Lafayette High School Athletic De- McGrew for not only what
apartment. (photo by Ed Taylor) he has done at Lafayette
but who he is. 'I devel-

consider him a dear, dear friend," said
he Mayo community Harris.
filled Dale Walker Field at Harris realized that filling the shoes of
the Branford-Lafayette Coach McGrew 'would not be an easy
football game two weeks task. "I told him there was no way I
ago. However, it was not could fill his shoes. I just hope I can fol-
just the rivalry between the two schools low in his footsteps," Harris said.
that brought the large numbers. It was a McGrew was hired into the high
time when the community came togeth- school as a junior varsity football coach
er, along with school officials, students, where he later took over the junior var-
players and former players in an out- sity basketball program as well. He
pouring of love and appreciation for graduated up to varsity basketball and
Taylor McGrew, former coach and Ath- later to. varsity football where he
letic Director. coached present day coach Joey Pearson.


"He did coach me and later I
coached with him in football,"
said Coach Pearson. "He men-
tored me from the very start of
my career. A lot of the success
that I have had over the years I
attribute to Coach McGrew be- 19
cause of the things he has
taught me as a player and assis- 19
tant coach." 19
Just before the Hornets took 19
the field to face Branford, Coach
McGrew gave the team a 19
pregame pep talk. "The guys
were really excited about it,"
said Pearson. "He is a great man
who has done a great job in our school
for a long time. He may have retired
from athletics but he is still on campus
and is still a big factor."
At the entrance leading onto the play-
ing field, former players erected a mon-
ument in honor of Coach McGrew. Sit-
ting on top of the monument is a "stone
of good luck" that each player rubs
when they take the field at game time.
In 1979 McGrew took over the girls
softball team, a sport he coached for
eight years. In 1983 he became head bas-
ketball coach, a position he held until


2003 where he was suc-
ceeded by Derek Gar-
land. Coach McGrew
said his first love was
basketball. "Basketball
has always.bgeene first inL
my heart," he said, "but I
enjoyed coaching foot-
ball as well because of
nights like this."
Coach McGrew spoke
of the changes he has
seen over the years since
he came to Mayo. He
said football has certain-
ly changed. "The biggest
change in football that I
have seen in the kids,
their size and speed," he
said. "Just the overall
athletic ability of kids to-
day. Back when I started

coaching if you had a 200-pound player
you had something. Now you have
them on the junior varsity that big."
The former coach recalled his days as
a basketball coach and he confessed that
at first he did not approve of the three-
point shot. "When it first came I did not
like it," he said, "but I do now. I never
coached it much when I coached but I
like to watch it now. I think that is the
biggest change in basketball since I have
been coaching. Teams score a lot more
points. The kids jump higher and run
faster. Fundamentally, the game is not
like it used to be."

Coach McGrew relat-
ed how the biggest
challenge to students
today is in the field of

athletics. "Just the out-

Whidden rushes for 145 yards,


scores 5 TD's in 42-26 win


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Eighth-grader Treston Whidden
rushed for 145-yards and scored five
touchdowns in leading the Lafayette
Hornets junior varsity football team to
a 42-26 win over a good Bell team last
week. Stephen Dees, an eighth-grader
scored on touchdown on a pass play
late in the game. Quarterback Rodney
Brown completed seven passes and
threw for 98-yards including the ,scor-
ing pass to Dees.
Deandre Devore had four catches
for 65-yards and Dees hauled in two
passes for 30 yards. Jason Coon had
one reception for 3-yards.
Defensively, the Hornets came up
with two interceptions, one by Brown
and Ryan Powers. The Hornets fum-
bled the football three times but lost
the ball once. Bell had two fumbles
and lost the ball once when Dees re-
covered the Bell miscue. Mel Jones led
the Hornet defensive line with five
tackles. Ismael Gonzalez had four first
hits and one assist (unofficial).
Lafayette got on the scoreboard first
with 2:43 remaining in the first quar-
ter. After a three-and-out for Bell, the
Hornets moved from their own 39-
yard line to the Bulldog's 46. On a
fourth and three play, Whidden took
the Brown hand off and scampered
46-yards for the score. Whidden ran
the conversion to stake his team to a

Thanks to Alton
Church of God
I had the privilege of having din-
ner with the Lafayette junior varsity
football team last Thursday night.
After departing the confines of the
high school the first stop on the trip
to Bell was at the Alton Church of
God where Pastor Chuck Hodge
and his wonderful folks hosted the
team in a nice meal. Pastor Hodge
had a challenging devotional for the
team before they resumed their jour-
ney to play Bell. The food was deli-
cious and the hospitality was great.
So was the challenge of the devo-
tional. Thank you Pastor Hodge and
your fine staff.
A big saying in the hills of Ken-
tucky, where I hail from, is "How
about those 'Cats!" Well, how about
those 'Cats after they knocked off
top-ranked LSU last Saturday. A
triple overtime win! Wow! It was a
great game. Hopefully, Rich Brooks
team will come back to earth before
they host the Florida Gators this Sat-
urday. Well, maybe I better not go
there right now.
What a performance Treston
Whidden put on in the JV game' at
Bell last Thursday. He scored five
touchdowns and emerged as a solid
threat on the ground. He had the

8-0 lead. It took about as
long as it takes to run the
length of the football field
for Bell to make it a 8-6 af-
fair. Brandon Slone took
the Hornet kick off and
went untouched for 78-
yards for a Bell touch-,
down.
Lafayette had excellent
field position entering the
second period moving on
a short field to the Bell 1-
yard line. On the first play
of the second quarter
Whidden plunged into the
end zone from 1-yard out
to give his team a 14-6 ad-
vantage. On a second
down play for Bell, Brown
picked off a pass and re-
turned it to the Bell 9-yard


line' where Whidden
scored for a 20-6 game.
Bell would make it 20-12
with 5:52 to play in the
first half but the Hornets
came right back for a 28-

yard run, adding the two-
point conversion. Mayo
would score once more
before half time on a 22-
yard touchdown pass
from Brown to Dees with
no time left on the clock.
The conversion play gave
the Hornets a 36-12 half
time lead.
Bell would get on the
scoreboard with 7:53 re-
maining in the game to
make it a 36-18 game and

onship. Coach Blankenship
will return a veteran team
but will be mixed with
youth as well.
Coach Blankenship said
he will take advantage of
the school fall break coming
up beginning October 22.
According to Coach
Blankenship tryouts will be
held Monday and Tuesday
before two-a-days begin.
"We will have a morning
practice then we will buy
them lunch," he said. "We
will send them home and
come back in the evening.
The girls are eager to get
started. That will give us 10
practices instead of just
five. We want to utilize fall
break as an opportunity to
practice a lot."
The girls "C" team will
not get started until Octo-
ber 30, according to
Blankenship. "We have to
get it going early this year


because we have a big
schedule this year. We will
be playing tougher teams,"
said Coach Blankenship.
"We are ready to go. The
,girls are ready go. I am
ready to go."
"The kids love to get a
ball and shoot," said Coach
Blankenship, but that will
not be the case when prac-
tice begins. "This year we
'are going to put more em-
phasis on conditioning be-
cause of the style we want
to play this year. We want
to be able to play a chaotic'
type of game where we can
press and run. We want to
be able to run players in
every two or three minutes.
We want to wear the other
team down."
Until the actual regular
season begins Coach
Blankenship said that con-
ditioning will be the em-
phasis of practice time. "We
have to be better defensive-
ly. I think we will because

Hornet coaches scratching
their heads wondering
where he had been all sea-
son. They did not know he
could run as he did. He
was amazing all right.
The boys basketball team
will open their 2007-08 sea-
son on November 20 at
home against Chiefland. I
am going to try and get up
with coach Daryl Fletcher
for a look at the upcoming
season. I look for the Hor-
nets to challenge for a dis-
trict title this season. Coach
Fletcher will return a veter-
an team with some help
coming from last year's
successful junior varsity
team.
I understand that Amelia
Hill will be coaching the


girls "C" team this year. Jeff
Scott will handle the boys
coaching duties at the mid-
dle school. I believe the
two teams open their sea-
son on November 20 as'
well. We will print all the
schedules once we have se-
cured all of them.
The football Hornets re-
turn to the gridiron tomor-
row night after a week off.
Lafayette will host Jeffer-
son County before going
on the road for their next
two encounters. Coach
Joey Pearson's team is 5-1
on the season and riding a
five game winning streak.
Finally, the girls volley-
ball district tournament
opens October 22 at Bell.
Until next week, good
sports everyone and be
good sports!

we worked on it in the
summer," said the veteran
coach. "In summer camp
we kind of tweaked our
presses. We have added
some things this past sum-
mer and the girls have
picked up on it.. We got to
rotate a lot of girls so we
kept them fresh."
Blankenship said he will
be able to go deeper on the
bench this basketball sea-
son. "In the past we were
able to go seven or eight
and that was it," he said.
"This year I think we can go
10 or 11 deep."
He said to look for his
team to put up the three's
more this season. "We also
want to run the ball up and
down the court. We want to
continuously get new peo-
ple in the game to help get
the other team tired. If we
develop like I think we will
I think we can go 10 or 11
deep," he said. "The girls
will have to except their
roles this season. We want
quality playing time when
they are in the game re-
gardless of how many min-
utes they play."
Sharing will be a priority
this season for the Lady
Hornets, according to


Coach Blankenship. "Of
course Sunshine (Reid) and
Natalie (Land) will get the
bulk of the playing time but
we would like to spread
out the rest of the minutes
with the other girls and
maybe rest Natalie and
Sunshine."
The Lady Hornets will
play for real on November '
16, facing district foe Bran-
ford at home. Early games
against Taylor County and
Hamilton does give some
early concern for the Lady
Hornets. "It is hard to get a
good schedule early in the
season," said Coach
Blankenship. "The game
against Branford, a.district
game, is very important
right off. The early competi-
tion will help us get ready
for our December schedule
which is going to be tough."
The Lady Hornets will
compete the Buchholz
Shootout again this season.
Lafayette will find tough
competition in the College
Prospects Tournament in
Gainesville December 27-
29. Florida High is addition
to this year's schedule.
Lafayette will play host to
this year's district tourna-
ment in February.

Day Committee, said they
were very impressed with
how Pioneer Day turned
out this year. "It was the
most successful and largest
Pioneer Day event we have '
had," Hollis said. They also
thank everyone, including
the vendors and sponsors,
for helping to make this
year's event a huge success.
Lafayette County Sheriff
Carsdn McCall also felt the
event went well. "Every-
thing went smoothly," Mc-
Call said.
The Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office was assisted
by law enforcement person-
nel from Dixie, Taylor,
Suwannee, and Madison
counties to make sure no
crimes were committed and
everyone could feel safe
while enjoying the parade
and other festivities.
Lafayette Emergency Ser-
vices and the volunteer fire
departments of Lafayette
County, Mayo, Hatch Bend,
and Day, were on hand to
assist with any medical or
fire services as well as par-
ticipating in the parade.
Everyone, especially the
children, were having a
good time watching the pa-
rade and visiting the booths
in the park, as evidenced
by the glowing smiles on.
their faces and many
cheers.
They also enjoyed a vari-
ety of music while sitting
near the gazebo underneath
the cool shade of several
large live oak trees. The
Lafayette High School


marching band put on a
concert of their own which
drew a round of applause'
and a standing ovation. The
seats remained filled nearly
all day.
Children, as well as
adults, tried their luck at
the "bobbing for apples"
booth that was located near
the giant pinball machine.
Some were successful at
fishing .an apple out of the
water, while others were
not, but had fun trying. At
the sawdust box, children
enjoyed digging for buried
treasure. Some of the par-
ticipants found as many as
five coins.
Other booths for the pub-
lic to enjoy were a petting
' zoo, face painting, cane .
grinding, various arts and
crafts, and a dinosaur/fos-
sils exhibit in the old log
cabin, just to name a few.
Kaci Palomino, winner of
the Pioneer Day essay con-
test, read her entry titled
"Pioneer Day: A Celebra-
tion of Our History" at the
gazebo on Saturday, Oct..
13. At the conclusion,
everyone gave her a stand-
ing ovation. Be sure to read
her essay on page 3A.
The Mayo Free Press

stopped by their booth and
said hello or purchased a
subscription. If you were
not able to stop by the
booth during Pioneer Day,

October seems to be a transitional month.
The hot, muggy days of September almost
seem to slip into cool, crisper temperatures
overnight. One day we are wearing sandals
and the next we are donning sweaters. Tak-
ing brisk walks and participating in outside
...activities become much more enticing. It is
a wonderful month to focus on your health
while enjoying the fresh, cooler air. Balance
is the key to exercise as well as the foods
we consume. For protein sources, the United
States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
touts the benefits of including fish and
seafood in our meal plans two to three times
each week. October is National Seafood
Month so it is a good time to kick off this
healthy seafood habit.
Florida is a source of excellent seafood,
aquaculture and marine life products. Flori-
da's commercial fishermen harvest 98 dif-
ferent species with 2005 cash receipts total-
ing more than $165 million. Florida aqua-
culture producers farm a vast array of prod-
ucts with sales totaling $75 million in 2005.
Tropical fish, aquatic plants and clams are
the top three aquaculture operations. Florida
seafood and aquaculture have an economic
impact estimated at more than $1.3 billion
annually.
Seafood is widely known for its omega-3
fatty acid properties. Many organizations
support the benefits of its frequent con-
sumption. According to the American Heart

Association, omega-3 fatty acids can benefit
individuals with healthy hearts as well as
those who have heart disease. The USDA's
www.mypyramid.goy Web site indicates
there is evidence that eating fish rich in
omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risks of
cardiovascular disease. A four-year study
funded by the National Institutes of Health,
found that citizens 65 and older who eat fish
at least once a week have a 60 percent lower
risk of dementia, including Alzheimer's dis-
ease.
There are lots of quick and easy ways to
incorporate seafood into your family meals.
Seafood is quick to prepare and it is impor-
tant that you don't overcook it for best taste
and texture. The general rule is 10 minutes
per inch of fillet thickness. So even if your
meal preparation has to work around all the
hustle and bustle of school, football, Hal-
loween and plans for the upcoming holi-
days, you will find it easier than you think.
Here are some tips to easily include
seafood in your meals without spending a
lot of time in the kitchen or breaking the
budget.
Buy Florida fish in fresh fillet or steak
form for quick preparation. Fillets are nor-
mally bone-free and steaks'are usually cut
into serving sizes, making the prep time a
snap. You can grill, broil, poach or bake
with your favorite seasoning. Serve as en-
tr6e for your evening meal or flake into a
salad for lunch.
Try different sizes of Florida shrimp and
use for different appetizers
S' or in main courses. Shrimp
.7--! can simply be seasoned
with garlic, lemon or other
spices and broiled.
Prepare grilled kabobs
S that include your favorite
veggies and Florida
seafood. Serve with brown
.rice and/or whole wheat
S rolls for a complete healthy
meal.
Florida oysters are
abundant in fall and can be
steamed, grilled, baked or
broiled. They can be pur-
chased both shucked and in
the shell at your local mar-
ket.
T i acos make a quick
supper. Try using Florida
fish, shrimp or crab in
them.
Fall is also a great time
for soups, stews, chowders
and other comfort foods.
Try this Red Sunset Clam
Chowder for a special treat
for your family. .

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

When operating a generator:
* Always operate a generator in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable generator
manufacturer's guidelines and instructions, as opposed to power normally supplied by SVEC., Transfer
switches isolate the circuits supplied by the generator and

Get pain relief without prescriptions


Many individuals suffer from some sort of pain. It disables
more people than cancer or heart disease. Pain can have serious
implications on quality of life. It affects sleep, can interrupt
work, and affects daily living. It is also one of the most
expensive and debilitating conditions, costing the U.S. close to
$50 billion annually.

Of all chronic pain, back pain is the most common complaint.
Statistics show that 31 million Americans alone experience
low-back pain at any given time. Back pain is one of the most
common reasons for missed work. In fact, it is the second most
common reason for visits to the doctor's office, outnumbered
only by upper-respiratory infections.

There are a number of avenues for relieving pain. Many times
prescription pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications
are given. But these can be costly and are only short-term
solutions. Plus, they can be dangerous. The American Medical
Association reports that chronic use of prescription and over-
the-counter pain medications, is becoming a public health
problem. Many people are unaware of the potential harmful
side effects, including gastrointestinal problems.

There are other options to treat pain, including chiropractic
manipulation and topical pain relievers. In regard to pain relief,
chiropractic care represents the most rapidly growing segment
of the professional health services market. Chiropractors care
for much more than back pain, but many patients visit
chiropractors to treat this complex condition. According to the
American Chiropractic' Association, manipulation, used
primarily by Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) for the last century,
is receiving growing interest as an emphasis on treatment and


cost effectiveness continues.

You can take steps in conjunction to chiropractic care to
alleviate discomfort:

Sprains: If you suspect you've sprained something, such as
your ankle, you'll want to apply a cold compress immediately.
According to the Mayo Clinic, doing so for 20 minutes at a time'
every 4 to 6 hours for a -few days after the sprain should be
sufficient. The cold will reduce both swelling and inflammation,
and should help relieve pain as well. Once swelling has reduced,
it's a good idea to apply heat to the sprained area. Heat will relax
the tightened muscle and can be applied for 20 minutes up to
three times per day.

Muscle aches, strains, backache: Maintaining a healthy weight
and exercising can keep the body limber and less likely to be
affected by pain. Warming up and stretching before any physical
activity, even something as mundane as gardening, can also
prevent injury and loosen up stiff joints. If repetitive actions or
working at a computer are the cause of pain, consider consulting
an expert to improve the ergonomics of your desk or workspace.

Joint pain and arthritis: Joint pain is common among people
approaching their golden years. In particular, hip pain seems to
be especially common among the aging set. Some people are
quick to jump the gun and seek cortisone shots or anti-
inflammatories. However, such an approach often just masks the
symptoms, giving the impression that the joint is healing when
it's really not. Over time, repeated cortisone shots or use of anti-
inflammatories can lead to further loss of joint function. For
some, natural therapies have proven beneficial for joint pain by
repairing tendon, ligament and cartilage damage. Those who
harve been Yexnriencino intensive miint nain should consult their


-pipinualmology physician first and foremost about such alternative therapies.

Dear Classified Guys,
I consider myself to be fairly intelli-
gent. I read the newspaper and the
classified every day. As the colder
months are approaching, I've started
to notice more advertising for fur-
naces and fireplaces In the newspa-
per. The one ad I saw last week was
kind of confusing. I've heard of heat-
ing your home with fuel oil, natural
gas, wood stoves or even pellet
stoves, but one contractor was offer-
ing to install a corn furnace. I've
never heard of such a thing. At first I
thought it was a misprint. I mean, I
eat popcorn, canned corn, even corn
on the cob, but never thought of
using it to heat my home. Is
this ad a hoax or are there ,-. ,
really corn furnaces? -

Cash: The ad is no hoax. In
fact, it's quite a-maiz-ing! Theie -'-
really are furnaces to heat your home that
use corn as a fuel source.
Carry: Corn stoves or furnmaces have
been used in certain parts of the country
for years, especially where corn is preve-
lent. In recent years as other fuel prices
have dramatically risen, corn stoves have
gained in popularity.
Cash: Using corn as fuel makes
sense. You may have heard news reports


CuSSUlIED


0 Guys



Duane "Cash" Holze
& Todd "Carry" Holze


, I'l:: I.'. i


about using ethanol fuel to run in your
car. Well, ethanol is a form of alcohol
that is derived from corn. This same
energy source that could power your car
is also what makes corn a good alterna-
tive for heating your home. It generally
bums clean and is readily available.
Carry: A corn furnace operates simi-
larly to any other furnace, except for the
fuel. It doesn't burn the stalks, left over
cobs or popcorn. Instead, it burns dried
kernels of shelled corn, the same yellow
kind cows eat.
Cash: Some of the furnaces are
designed to burn all sorts of alternative
fuels, including wood chips, sawdust,
walnut shells or even cherry pits.


Carry: Although, I wonder how you
get enough cherry pits to heat a home.
Cash: While these types of heating
systems are a great alternative, they do
require a little more work. The hopper of
a corn furnace needs to be reloaded with
corn, usually about once a day. Also,
you'll need a clean dry place to store the
50-pound bags of corn.
Carry: Unlike popcorn, the corn fur-
nace won't make your house smell like a
night at the movies and the kernels don't
snap, crackle or pop as they bum. The
process is silent.
Cash: Although, it would be handy if
future models came equipped with an
option to make movie popcorn as well.


Warm Thoughts
Heating your home has become very
expensive in recent years, but you can
program in some savings by updating
your thermostat. Adding a programma-
ble thermostat can save you up to 20%
of your heating costs. By lowering the
temperature in your home by 5 degrees
at night and 10 degrees while you're at
work, you'll notice a significant differ-
ence in your heating bills. Most ther-
mostats can set different schedules for
each day and even raise the temperature
before you get up in the morning or
come home from work.
The Green Reality
Energy conservation has found a
home on a reality television show on
HGTV, entitled "Living with Ed".
Already known for his acting career, Ed
Bagley Jr. is also an extreme energy
conservationist. The white picket fence
around his home is made from recycled
milk jugs. His morning toast is only
made when he jumps on his stationary
bike and pedals for ten minutes to gen-
erate enough power to toast it. His wife
and daughter, who hoped to live the
Hollywood lifestyle, don't believe quite
as deeply as Ed. However, maybe we
could all learn a little something from
this television show.


Husband Roast
My husband is a great guy, but
unfortunately he is also knob n for
telling really chees jokes There
isn't a holiday that goes b- there he
doe-n't tell some store that makes
e, er5 one cringe.
At our last family gathering he final-
1: got a taste of his o \ n medicine
After dinner he took eter)one into the
1i\ ing room to sho\\ them our net\
cornm sto e that heat- the house. He
Sent on describing hol'. it runs b5 sim-
pli adding corn into the hopper. After
making a fetcw more bad jokes, he \\as
finally\ caught off guard bN m\ uncle.
"if' ou put one ot'5our cornr jokes
in there." m\ uncle said, "it could
heat \our house for a xear!"

Kevin L. Kelley, State Execu-
tive Director of the USDA
Farm Service Agency
(FSA). These fiscal year 2008
payments are for completed
performance in the prior fiscal
year.
"By participating in CRP,
producers and other landown-
ers throughout the nation are
improving air and water quali-
ty, enhancing wildlife habitat
and reducing erosion," said
Kelley. "These practices are
making a real difference today
and promoting a healthier envi-
ronment for the next genera-
tion."
Producers holding about
782,000 contracts on 441,000
farms across the nation will re-
ceive an average of $49.49 per
acre for a total of about $1.8
billion in CRP rental pay-


ments. The number of con-
tracts is higher than the number
of farms because some produc-
ers may have multiple con-
tracts on a single farm. The
payments allow producers to
earn an average of $4,130 per
farm enrolled in the program.
In Florida, producers cur-
rently have approximately
1,914 contracts for 82,763
acres enrolled in CRP on 1,563
farms in 19 counties.
Included in the national to-
tals are 355,000 contracts (3.9
million acres) for CRP's con-
tinuous sign-up and 427,000
contracts (32.9 million acres).
for general sign-up. Under con-
tinuous sign-up, producers
may enroll high priority con-
servation practices such as fil-
ter strips and riparian buffers at
any time without competition.
Currently, enrollment stands
at 36.8 million acres, making
CRP the largest public-private
partnership for conservation
and wildlife habitat in the Unit-
ed States. This voluntary pro-
gram helps agricultural pro-
ducers enhance environmental-


ly sensitive land. Producers en-
roll in CRP and plant long-
term, resource-conserving cov-
ers to improve water quality,
control soil erosion and en-
hance habitats for waterfowl
and wildlife. In return, USDA
provides producers with rental
payments. CRP contract dura-
tion is from 10 to 15 years.
USDA issues other CRP
payments throughout the
year. These payments include a
50 percent expense reimburse-
ment for establishing cover as
well as incentive payments for
enrolling eligible high priority
conservation practices.
The table, located at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/Inter-
net/FSA_File/crptable07.pdf,
lists, by state, acreage enroll-
ments, number of contracts,
number of farms, acres en-
rolled and the projected
amount of upcoming CRP
rental payments.
For more information on
CRP, producers should contact
their local FSA office, 386-362-
2681 or visit FSA's Web site at
