Five reasons to



donate blond



during the holidays


During the holidays the
number of people donating
blood typically drops as
regular donors travel away
from home and calendars
fill up with activities. But.
the, demand for blood,
knows no holiday. Here are
five common needs for
blood during this time of
year.
1. Trauma: We all know
that traffic accidents are an
unfortunate holiday predic-
tion. There have been vic-
tims who have needed
more than 100 units of red
blood cells to survive. A se-
verely burned victim may
need 'dozens of units of
plasma.
2. Organ transplant:
When an organ becomes
available, there is no time to
waste. Before a liver trans-
plant can take place there
needs to be 20,units of red
blood cells and 20 units of
plasma standing by.
3. Cancer treatment:
Some cancer patients can't
produce enough platelets,
the special blood cells re-
sponsible for dotting. The
only way to help them sur-
vive is through platelet
transfusion. It's, estimated
that each cancer treatment
requires the support of sev-
en platelet donors.
4. Open heart surgery: A
serious heart attack may re-
quire immediate surgery.
On the average a patient
will need four units of red
cells, five units of platelets
and one unit of plasma.
5. Premature births: Red
blood cells, platelets and,


plasma have to be standing
by on the shelves of the
hospital blood banks to
give these babies a fighting
chance for survival. With
complicated deliveries,
mothers may also need
blood.

Heart Matters


It's getting that time -
Christmas is just around
the comer as a matter of
the heart, no other holiday
can compare. Our hearts .
may be filled with warm
memories or painful re-
minders of holidays past
and we may either be ex-
cited or dreading the one
to come; the excitement, '
the loneliness, the fun, the
stress, and not to mention
the expense but we have to
admit that it is a rare heart
indeed that is indifferent to
the approaching Christmas
season.
It seems that the holi-
days are marked by lots of
preparation we decorate
our homes, prepare meals,
prepare to give by decid-
ing on just the right gift,
where to buy, how much
to spend, and prepare our
schedules to include all the
work, friends and family
celebrations. But what
about our hearts? Since
our hearts are so affected
by this holiday, is it possi-
ble to prepare them'for
Christmas and experience
a new kind of celebration
this year? For the next
month, I invite you to join
"Heart Matters" each week
as we take a look at Christ-
mas through the eyes of
Mary, the one who was,
chosen to bring forth the
very first Christmas cele-
bration.
In Luke 1:26-27, the Bible
introduces Mary by giving
us some important infor-
mation: "In the sixth
month, God sent the angel
Gabriel to Nazareth, a
town in Galilee, to a virgin
pledged to be married to a
man named Joseph, a de-
scendent of David. The
virgin's name was Mary."
Here we get Mary's infor-


nation: where she was,I
what she was, and who.she
was going to be! These are
some great questions to an-
swer for ourselves in our.
preparation for Christmas
do you know where you
are arid why? How would
you describe yourself anid
what direction you are
headed?
The angel Gabriel found
Mary in Nazareth, a small
town in the region of
Galilee. According to the
Bible, there was nothing
spectacular about the town
itself. In fact, in the book
of John 1:44-46 the disciple
Nathaniel asked the ques-
tion, "Nazareth! Can any-
thing good come from
there?" Like Nathaniel, we
can often get the idea that
nothing good can come
from where we are,
whether it be the place we
live, the family we belong
to, or even a difficult situa-
tion we may be in. Rest as-
sured that just as straight
as Gabriel flew to find
Mary, God knows exactly
where you are and He has
a plan for your life. Take a
moment and think about a
difficult place, situation or
relationship that you find
yourself. What purpose
might God have in your
being in this place?
Another thing that we
learn about Mary is that
she is a virgin, an unmar-
ried woman who has re-
mained sexually pure. It is
interesting that Webster's
dictionary gives an addi-
tional definition: "free from
impurity or stain." Too of-
ten, the holidays are a time
of depression and grief for
those with unpleasant -
memories stains from the
past, whether from your
mistakes or someone else's.


Satan loves nothing more
than to resurrect feelings of
guilt and shame over the
things,from the past to pre-
vent you from celebrating
the birth of the One who
came to pay that debt for
you! If we ask God to for-
give us those past stains,
He is faithful to do just
that (1 John 1:9) God has
not only forgiven, He for-
gets and He wants you to
move on to the great
things He has planned for
your life, (just like He had
for Mary). In 2 Corinthi-
ans 5:17 we are assured
that if anyone is in Christ,
he or she is a new creation,


the old has gone and the
new is here! Now that is a
great way to begin cele-
brating the Christmas sea-
son because YOUR heart
does matter!
Blessings, Angie

(ABSTINENCE TILL MARRIAGE)
By Carolyn C. Demps

PARENTS: IT'S IMPORTANT TO TALK
WITH YOUR TEEN ABOUT ABSTINENCE,
SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS
It is important to help young people confront the dangers facing them
today. Some of those dangers are very different than they were when you
were a teenager. Decisions teens make now can affect their health and
character for the rest of their lives.
* STD'S are more common than most people realize. Of the 19 million new
STD infections, one-fourth of these are among teenagers.
* At least 25 diseases are shared through sexual contact. Many begin with
mild symptoms. Unless tested, most people do not know they are infected
until they have caused permanent, life long damage.
* If your teen becomes a parent, he or she is more likely to live in poverty, is
less likely to graduate from high school and may seriously risk the healthy
development of his or her children.
* Abstinence helps protect teens from sexually transmitted disease, becoming
pregnant out of wedlock, and having the emotional risk and responsibility
involved with sex.
* By choosing abstinence, your teen will learn to recognize that the joys and
benefits of experiencing sex as part of a healthy, trusting, committed
marriage relationship far outweigh any of the fleeting perceived benefits of
early sexual activity.

Suwannee/Lafayette Retired Educators meet


By Laura Hodges
The Suwannee/Lafayette Retired Ed-
ucators met on Oct. 8 in the fellowship
hall at Live Oak Church of God on US
129 South.
The meeting was called to order by
Bill McMillan, president. After the
reading of the minutes by Vy Ritter,
secretary, presentation of the financial


report by Ken Lee and reports from all
the chairmen of the various commit-
tees, the program was presented.
Tegdra Samuel, executive director of
the Achievers Program, Inc., shared
about a program located at 6001 SW
CR 141, Jasper which helps young peo-
ple achieve their goals in life and also
to help them know that their goals are


achievable. Their phone number is
386-938-2301. They are seeking volun-
teers, since they have quite a few
young people involved in the pro-
gram.
After watching a video about the
program and listening to Samuel,
everyone enjoyed a great meal. Door
prizes were awarded.

From our readers
An open letter to my friends and clients
In December of 1990, when I graduated
from the University of Florida College of
Law, I decided to work with Ernest A. Sell-
ers, in his Live Oak law firm to gain experi-
ence and real life legal training. I worked
with Mr. Sellers in Live Oak until May of
1995, when I made the decision to open my
law office here in Branford.
I grewV up in O'Brien and went to school
here in Branford. I knew a lot of people in
this area and believed that my Branford
practice would be a success. Even with that
expectation, I was overwhelmed by the
warm welcome I received from the Bran-
ford community and the surrounding coun-
ties. Twelve years later, I still cannot believe
the phenomenal success I have had here in
Branford as a practicing family law attor-
ney.
Over the years, I have had clients from
Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie, Gilchrist, Co-
lumbia, Alachua, Pinellas, Putnam, Wash-
ington, Levy, Flagler, and other numerous
counties throughout Florida. To my sur-
prise, I have had a number of out of state
clients who had been served in Florida law
suits. When I inquired about why they
called me, most of those clients told me they
had family or friends in the area who rec-
ommended me. Thank you for allowing me
the privilege of being your attorney and for
making these twelve years so much fun.
In September, I was certified as a Media-
tor in Family Law and County Court. Early
this month, I began practicing as a media-
tor, both privately and with the Third Cir-
cuit Mediation Program. In October, I was
offered a part time position as an attorney
with the Third Circuit Guardian Ad Litem
program; These two new opportunities will
give me more time to devote to my family.
Therefore, I have decided to close my pri-
vate practice effective November 30, 2007.
I have rented my office space to the law
firm of Foreman and Olvera, P.A. Joel Fore-
man and Toby Olvera have an office in Lake
City. They recently hired Heather Hatch
McInnis as an associate attorney. You can
read about Joel, Toby, their practice areas of
law and general information on their firm
on the internet at foremanolvera.com.
I sincerely hope that you will welcome,
Joel, Toby and Heather to the Branford
community. They will be announcing their
office hours in Branford and'when they will
be opening within the next few weeks. You
can contact them at their Lake City offices at
386-752-8420, Monday through Friday.
Sincerely,
Sandra K. Haas

Sapp works hard



toward next level


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent-

High school football on
a Friday night is very
popular in the state of
Florida and all the dedi-
cation of the players over
the three month season is
appreciated by the fans.
However, every Friday
night, at the Dale Walker
Field in Mayo, there is
another dedicated group
- the Lafayette Marching
Band.
Haley Sapp is part of
that marching band and
captain of the auxiliary
majorettes. One thing
that goes unnoticed
when the majorettes and
band perform at half
time, is that the band
puts in a lot of time in
preparing for the special
night. Sapp said the ma-
jorettes are at practice
three days a week for an
hour and a half each time
out. "It could go longer,"
said Sapp. "depending
on how much work we
need."
Sapp said the summer
months are the hardest.
"That is when we are try-
ing to get the whole
show together," said the
majorette's captain. "You
have to be highly dedi-
cated if you want to be
successful, even in
band."

NFC halts Hornets dream


Lafayette falls 21-6 in semi's


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

At the onset of the 2007 high
school football season, the number
one goal for the Lafayette Hornets
was to fulfill an inclusive dream of
winning a state championship. This
was thought to be the year for
coach Joey Pearson and the Hornets
with an experienced senior team re-
turning. But those dreams were


shattered last Friday night in a 21-6
setback to a very strong North
Florida Christian School out of Tal-
lahassee.
While the Hornet's defense con-
tinued to be strong it was the of-
fense that had difficulties n' finding
any ground game at all against the
visitors front line. The Hornets
managed only 99-yards (unofficial)
on the ground and senior running
back Eric McIntyre had 48 of those,


a super performance for the Hornet
back. All-stater Chad Hempstead
had the distance on his passing but
several were too long in leading the
receivers. Outside a 87-yard touch-
down completion to Jamal Reid,
Hempstead found little weakness
in North Florida's secondary.
Hempstead finished with 145-
. yards on nine of 23 passing. The se-

SEE NFC, PAGE 8A


While the band and
auxiliary group usually ,
do the same show each
Friday night, some
changes do have to be
made. "We will rearrange
a few things if they are
riot working for us," she
said. "Also, if someone
cannot make the game
you have to readjust.
Once we have the show
together we take a long
look at it and make what
adjustments are needed."
Sapp said she is very
critical. "You have to be
to get the type of show
you want," she ex-
plained. "You have to be
demanding and expect
the best out of everyone.
I am really proud of the
girls. I know they get
frustrated with me as the
captain."
Unlike other sports,
majorettes have to meet a
different criteria in order
to be part of the team.
"You have to set your
own routine for tryouts
and you have to do it in
a set time limit," said
Sapp. "Also, you have to
have a certain GPA. You
are required to do certain
fundamentals. Like you
have two turns in basic
fundamentals of twirling
at the tryouts. You are

Lafa yette t t e

came to a close last Fri- ..X ,
day night in a disap- .

North Florida Christian
School. I know everyone
was so disappointed but I '
for one can say that no [
player or coach on this
team has to hang their
head. This group played hard and never knew what it
was to quit. I want to thank coach Joey Pearson, his
wonderful staff and all the great players for a won-
derful football season. It has been great! We wish the
seniors the best in the years ahead and feel. they will
go out and bring some good things to our society. '
I have been around high school football for the past
22 years. I have covered games all over the state of
Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and here in Florida.
Never have I seen the support fans at Mayo and
around show this school year in and year out. It was
just breath-taking to look at the stands and the fans
that lined the fences to come out and support this pro-
gram. I thank every fan who showed up and rooted
this team on.
I have been to the bigger schools in other states and
never have I seen the turnout that a small school like


he


Lafayette has. I think
that is a credit to the
great coaching staff that
coach Joey Pearson
puts together here. This
is my column and I can
say what I want, but
Joey Pearson and his
crew are the best as far
as I am concerned. I
thank you Coach Pear-
son for letting me be
just a little small part of


your wonderful program.
Well, we can go inside and watch some good bas-
ketball as the roundball season is underway. Coach
Daryl Fletcher will get the rest of his basketball team
now that the football season has ended., I know he
would have given them up for one more week if the
Hornets had advanced on. With Eric McIntyre, Jamal
Reid and Joey Watson joining the squad, look for the
Hornets to be much improved this season.
Coach Jimmy Blankenship and his Lady Hornets
played further down south last week. His Lady Hor-
nets will make some noise again this season. I enjoy
watching both teams play on the hardwood. I even
enjoy watching the "C" teams play and wish I had
more time to cover their gaines. But as a part-time

Four players scored in
double figures in leading

to an easy 88-21 win'over
visiting Bronson last week
in district girls basketball at
Lafayette. Senior Natalie
Land tossed in a game high
19 points and Carteshia
Macklin added 18. Takisha


Cherry netted 16 points
while Sharonda Cherry
tossed in 12 points. Land
dished off four assists while
pulling down seven re-
bounds. She came up with
four steals. Macklin had
three assists and six steals.

nior quarterback tried to help the running
game for Lafayette with 39-yards rushing
on eight carries. Outside of McIntyre and
Hempstead, the Hornets got little ground
game against the North Florida front line.
Melvin Bell, wide out for North Florida,
showed that he was worthy of all the press
when he hauled down six catches for 126-
yards receiving. Bell signed with Alabama
during the football signing period.
The early breaks went North Florida's
way in the first half. Several times North
Florida found themselves facing third and
long yardage only to come up with a big
play that netted them a long drive. In the
second period, facing a third and long on
their own 37-yard line, quarterback Austin
Trainor hit Bell with a 42-yard completion
,putting the ball at the Hornets 7-yard line.
After being assessed a 5-yard penalty,
Trainor found Darrius McQueen in the
flats for a 10-yard completion and the
game's first score. The extra point gave the
visitors a 7-0 lead with 3:19 to play in the
second quarter.
After a three-and-out for Lafayette,
North Florida got excellent field position
at the 50-yard line. It took seven plays for
Clint Tackett to find Dayne Read in the
end zone. The PAT gave North Florida a
14-0 lead at the half.
. As the third quarter unfolded, North
Florida took first possession and marched
85-yards on 15 plays to go up 21-0 with
6:21 to play in the third period. Downfield
coverage was not there for the Hornets
during the drive with Tackett passing for
74-yards in moving the football upfield.
Lafayette avoided being shutout when
they struck in the fourth quarter. On first
down play, Hempstead went deep where
Reid hauled in a pass good for 87-yards
and the lone Hornet "score. Blade Herring


missed the point after.
The Hornets finish the season with an
excellent 11-2 mark. The loss ended the
Hornets 11 game winning streak. North
Florida advances on to the championship
game in Class 1A tomorrow in Orlando.

shine Reid, who finished
with only six points but
dished off eight assists,
played a strong floor
game and had five re-
bounds for the Lady Hor-
nets. Lafayette led 35-6 af-
ter the first period.
Bronson was never able
to regroup in spite of the
number of timeouts they
called in the opening peri-
od. Bronson trailed the
Lady Hornets 59-9 at the
half. Land scored nine of
her 19 points in the sec-
ond period and completed
an old-fashioned three-
point play.
Lady Hornet coach Jim-
my Blankenship took his
starters out and went to
the bench early. "We are a
team that likes to press,"
he said.following thedis-
trict victory. "We hate to
press a team like Bronson
and run the score up. Of
course, the competition is
going to get tougher when
we play at Buchholz this
week. We will see then
what kind of team we
are." The Lady Hornets

in your performance." .
Sapp is working hard in
hopes that she might be
able to continue twirling
at the next level: "I love
twirling. If I do choose
twirling at the next level I
do not know where I
would go," she said. "I am
really working hard at
that right now. Hopeful-
ly, I can do that when I '
get in college."
Band director, Dale
Croft, credits Sapp for the
valuable help she brings
to the band. "I am not a
dancer and I am certainly
not a majorette," he said
with a smile. "I have had
to depend on senior lead-
ership to step up and
teach routine and help me
learn to teach the younger
dancers and majorettes.
Haley, our only majorette
senior, on the auxiliary
team has been a tremen-
dous help. Almost every-
thing they have done on
the field or at pep rallies
h as been due to her cre-
ative ability. She deserves
99 percent of the credit."
Sapp stated at the next
level the requirements
will be a little stiffer' "Of.
course, everything at the
next level is going to be
more difficult," she said.
"But I feel that I am ready
to give it a try. I have

since I was three but I re-
ally enjoy twirling. It is
just hard to explain. I can
have the worst day of my
life but when I go out and
twirl it is like my get-
away place."
Sapp said that she did
not comprehend how it
would be her final year as
a majorette at Lafayette
High School. "It has been
a good year for me. I did-
n't believe how emotional
I would be," she said.
"Little things just get to
me. I realize it is my last
homecoming. It has been
kind of a stressful year
but I have other senior
things to worry about."
Like some of the other
band members, Sapp was
fearful there would be no
band program this year
until Croft entered the
picture.. "I am so glad
that he came and helped
us out," she said. "I re-
member last summer
when we found out we
did not have a band di-
rector the auxiliary held
hands arid prayed that we
would have someone to
come in. We found out
that Mr. Croft was com-
ing and he was the an-
swer to our prayers. I
can't explain how happy I
was that he was going to
be here for us."

writer, it is difficult to find
that time. But I certainly
enjoy being around the
kids. It just makes you feel
younger and I need some-
one to help me feel that
way. I still get out and
shoot a few hoops now and
then.
All the football bowls are
just over the horizon and
we look forward to yet
some great college bowl
games. Until next week,
good sports everyone and
be good sports. Listen!
Don't send your kids to
Sunday School this Sun-
day. Please don't send
them. Get out and take
them. It will make you a
better person if you do.

Alex Prince, who served
as a Chief Assitant State At-
torney for the Third Judi-
cial Circuit in Live Oak for
33 years, visited Mayo on
Wednesday, Nov. 28, dur-
ing his campaign for State
Attorney in the same cir-
cuit.
Prince spoke briefly with
the Mayo Rotary Club and
about the Third Judicial
Circuit with great passion
and said he enjoyed his pre-
vious job very much.
According to Prince,
Florida is divided into 20
judicial circuits. The major-
ity of the counties in Flori-
da have one county judge
while the remainder may
have two or more. Each
county also has one State
Attorney, one Public De-
fender, and several Circuit
Court judges.
Lafayette County, along
with Columbia, Dixie,
Hamilton, Madision,
Suwannee, and Taylor,
make up the Third Judicial
Circuit. "This particular cir-
cuit has more counties than
any other circuit. There are
a lot of circuits that only
have one county," Prince
said.
Prince has handled a va-

AP GE 10A ~ THE MAYO FRE L


Locally ...


Continued From Page 1A

tance, Joe P. Burns has
operated a funeral home
in Perry, but only a
chapel in Mayo. Today,
the chapel has been con-
verted into a full-service
funeral home and chapel.
The embalming process
and other related services
are not available at this
time in Mayo, but are still
handled in Perry.
Instead of having to
travel a long distance to
another community, citi-
zens of Lafayette County
will now be able to take
care of their funeral needs
in Mayo.
The planning process of
putting a funeral together
has also been simplified.
For example, according to
Green, people will no
longer feel uncomfortable
walking into a room full
of caskets. Family mem-
bers are able to view a
piece of a casket hanging
on a wall that includes a
pull-out display of a pic-
ture with information
about the item. In the cas-
ket display room, there
are approximately 20 cas-
kets hanging on the wall.
In addition, there is a
room where families can
choose from a variety of
fittings for the casket,
whether the deceased was


a member of the military,
enjoyed fishing, hunting,
cooking, or gardening. If
the family chooses crema-
tion, there are a variety of
decorative urns to choose
from. In another room
there is a wall that dis-
plays the different types
of books of memories
families can also choose
from.
Murrow and Green,
who are very fond of Joe
P. Burns, Jr., and consider
him to be an outstanding
individual and family
man, a loyal member of
the community, and a
very smart businessman,
are elated to have full
ownership of the business
again. "He treated his cus-
tomers as family and set
the bar for Steve and my-
self to achieve. He taught
me and helped me to be
the funeral director I am
today. Compassion, love,
appreciation, and dedica-
tion. We think of him of-
ten and know that he is
proud of what we are do-
ing and what we want to
do in the future. His
name will always be out
front, and in doing so, his
memory will live on. It
was an honor to have
worked, to have fellow-
shipped, and to have himn
as a mentor," Murrow
said.

A major chapter event

By Chelle Koster Walton
Florida's early roadside attractions
strove to satiate America's appetite
for the eccentric with rare animals;
flamboyant gardens, crowd-thrilling
acts and human oddities. Many such
attractions became extinct with the
rise of the state's major theme parks.
Others adapted to the changing times
and anew environmental conscious-
ness to endure as a precious bit of
Florida history. Flash back at any of
these:

CYPRESS GARDENS,
ADVENTURE PARK,
Winter Haven, 863-324-2111,
www.cypressgardens.com
Dick and Julie Pope launched Cen-
tral Florida's tradition of theme parks
in the 1930s when they enhanced their.
gorgeous gardens with Southern
belles and stunt water-skiers. The
classic park has recently reopened af-
ter undergoing major enhancements to
resurrect its trademark traditions,
along with some thoroughly modem
twists. Don't miss the butterfly ar-
boretum and ice-skating extravagan-
zas, along with five roller coasters
and 33 other rides.

GATORLAND,
Orlando, 407-855-5496 or
800-393-JAWS,
www.gatorland.com rn
Gnarly and tyrainisaurish, 'gators
became emblematic of Florida road-
side attractions. Nothing drew in the
crowds like these chompers. Many at-
tractions devoted themselves primari-
ly to the prehistoric beasts, including
Gatorland, an alligator farm that
opened in 1948. Through the years it
has introduced snakes and other ani-
mals, shows, a get-wet playground
and a petting zoo.

KEY WEST AQUARIUM,
Key West, 305-296-2051,
www.keywestaquarium. corn


When Key West toppled from its
position as one of the country's rich-
est towns to one of its poorest, the
federal government sent the Works
Project Administration in 1932 to
build an open-air aquarium and jump-
start tourism. The Key West Aquari-
um today lures visitors with homey
charm and the promise of petting a
shark during the tour. To show its eco-
conscience, it has become involved in
raising baby sea turtles in conjunction
with the Marathon Turtle Hospital.

MARINELAND,
Marineland (south of St. Augustine),
904-460-1275,
www.marineland.net
Tourists love dolphins, seals and all
the creatures under the sea.
Marineland near St. Augustine capi-
talized on that love affair in June
1938, when it opened the world's first
"oceanarium," an aquarium that recre-
ates the ocean's diversity of marine
life. It thrilled early crowds with ma-
rine animal acts and a realistic view
of ocean life. Today it takes an eco-
logical and interactive course with
dolphin encounter programs and scu-
ba diving in the 1.3 million gallon se-
ries of dolphin habitats.

MONKEY JUNGLE,
Miami, 941-355-5305;
www.monkeyjungle. corn
Here, monkeys in the wild peer
down at you in YOUR cage. Mon-
key Jungle began in 1933 as an exper-
iment on the territorial instincts of
monkeys. Uncaged, the crab-eating
macaque monkeys hung around. Peo-
ple came to look. When the monkeys
objected to the intruders, founder
Frank DuMond built cages for the vis-
itors. Amazonian monkeys have
joined the jungle, along with others,
including tamarins, for which Frank
pioneered a breeding program.

ST. AUGUSTINE ALLIGATOR
FARM ZOOLOGICAL PARK,
St. Augustine, 904-824-3337,
www.alligatorfarm.com
In a city full of "oldest" superla-
tives, St. Augustine Alligator Farm.
opened in 1893 to score as the world's
first of.its kind. During its 110-plus
years, the park has grown from a
commercial farm raising alligators
and staging 'gator wrestling to a zoo-
logical park with the world's only
complete collection of crocodilians,
not to mention snakes, monkeys, birds
and educational wildlife shows.

SILVER SPRINGS,
Ocala, 352-236-2121,
www.silversprings.com
In 1878, Hullam Jones glued a win-
dow to the bottom of a rowboat and
simultaneously invented Florida
tourism'and the glass-bottom boat.
Now grown to a 350-acre animal and
nature park, it has added live animal
exhibits and shows, a water park,
Wilderness Trail, Kids Ahoy! Play-
land and the brand-new Lighthouse
Ride and Fantastic Fountains Water
Show.

SUNKEN GARDENS,
St. Petersburg, 727-551-3100,
www.stpete.org/sunken.htm
Sunken Gardens began in 1935 as
one man's obsession with Florida's
ability to flourish. Visitors paid to
peek and before you knew it, tourism
overgrew the gardens. Residents and
the city saved Sunken Gardens from
demise in 1999. Today the classic at-
traction has taken on a new mission to
educate, adding butterflies and rain-
forest programs to the lush waterfall-
splashed gardens.

WEEK WACHEE SPRINGS,
Weeki Wachee, 352-596-2062,
www. weekiwachee. corn
Esther Williams and Don Knotts
were among the stars filmed on loca-
tion at Weeki Wachee, a.k.a. Mermaid
City near Spring Hill. The park and
its underwater mermaid theater
opened in 1947 when a Navy frogman
instructor devised a way for his sexy
and sequined mermaids to breathe
through hoses under water. Today, a
wilderness river cruise, a mermaid
museum and school, water slides and
flumes have added modern appeal to


the classic underwater mermaid
shows.

How Do I Know If I Have a
Cataract?
cause you have a cataract doesn't mean you know
;because cataracts develop slowly and the
is are not overwhelming. Some of the more
symptoms include:
y vision
s glare, making certain forms of light, such as


As the aging process runs its course, it's expected the
body will go through certain changes. A slower
metabolism, a reduction in stamina and a few extra pounds
are some of the experiences of aging.
Another frequent development as people grow older is a
loss of vision. According to the National Eye Institute
(NEI), by the age of 80 more than half of all Americans
either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. Such
figures illustrate the importance of understanding cataracts
and what, if anything, can be done to avoid being another
number among the cataract-having masses.

What Are Cataracts?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens that can impair a
person's vision. This impairment occurs because the lens
helps to focus light on the retina, which needs a clear lens
in order to receive a sharp image. If the lens isn't clear (as
is the case when a person has a cataract), the image
received by the retina will be blurred. Though cataracts
cannot be spread from one eye to the other, they can occur
in both eyes.

Aren't Cataracts Solely a Concern
for the Elderly?
While the majority of people with cataracts are elderly,
that doesn't mean younger people, and even babies, cannot
be stricken with a cataract. That's because cataracts come
in different forms.
Age-related cataracts: These are the cataracts most
people instantly think of. They develop as a result of aging.
Traumatic-cataracts: Anytime a person injures an eye,
there's the possibility tht, a traumatic cataract will
develop. What's more, these types of cataracts aren't on a
timetable and can develop years after the trauma occurred.
Congenital cataracts: These can occur in infants or even
older children and typically occur in both eyes. Sometimes,
they go unnoticed because they do not affect vision. When
they do affect vision, lens removal might be necessary.
Secondary cataracts: These are often the result of
another disease, such as diabetes, or another eye problem,
like glaucoma. Overexposure to ultraviolet light can also
cause cataracts. The NEI notes that secondary cataracts
have been linked to steroid use as well.

What Can Be Done to Prevent
Cataracts?
Prevention of cataracts can be difficult because there is no
concrete cause. However, certain behaviors have been linked
to cataracts, and therefore avoiding those behaviors can
lessen a person's risk. According to the NEI, smoking and
alcohol use are risk factors for cataracts. In addition,
researchers believe diabetes and cataracts are linked.
The good thing about these risk factors is that they can be
controlled. People who don't have diabetes should eat
healthfully (a diet that includes green, leafy vegetables and
fruit) and exercise, while all people should avoid smoking
and drinking alcohol in excess. It's also good to have a yearly
eye exam, particularly for middle-aged adults and those older.
People with a history of eye problems or who have
experienced eye trauma in the past should also have yearly
exams, regardless of age. NEI recommends people over the
age of 60 should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at
least once every two years.
Another way to prevent the onset of cataracts is to keep
eyes protected from the sun at all times. Since prolonged
exposure to sunlight is a risk factor for cataracts, be sure to
wear sunglasses whenever going out in the sun. For those
with glasses, consider clip-on prescription lenses that attach
directly to the lenses of eyeglasses.
To learn more about cataracts, visit the National Eye
Institute Web site at www.nei.nih.gov.

These expert tips will ensure
a memorable holiday meal.
* Fourth generation Italian olive oil producer, Giovanni Colavita,
says that the superior flavor, aroma and nutrients in extra virgin
olive oil make it the optimal choice for dipping .and for season-
ing rubs. It's also ideal for low to medium heat cooking.
* For perfect beef roasts, always use a thermometer to check the
internal temperature and don't skimp on standing time! During
standing, the temperature rises and the juices redistribute, result-
ing in easier carving and juicy beef.
* To get the most enjoyment, serve-white wines at 500 to 550F -
colder temperatures minimize the flavors and aromas. Red wines
are best at 650 to 680F. Plan four to five glasses of wine from a
standard 750 mL bottle, and if there is any left over, refrigerate
the bottle (corked) three to five days.

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT CHRISTMAS?


By Pam\Campbell


r ave any of you ever thought about where
we would be without Christmas? I don't
mean skipping the presents, or not having
the hustle and bustle of the holiday, sea-
son, or having a year without a Christmas tree, I mean what
if there was absolutely NO Christmas, ever?

You see Christmas is so much more than the hustle and
bustle of the hurried Holidays. Most people think that the
holidays are just gifts to buy, lists to make, cards to write,,
decorating to do, cookies to bake, parties to plan, parties to
attend, Christmas programs, parades, festivals, pageants,
and helping the needy. Spending time with family and
friends, and all of the cookies and gifts and activities are a
wonderful part of the holiday, but they are not THE real
reason for the holiday. These things are a nice part of the
Christmas season, but they are not Christmas.

Christmas is Christ's birthday. "For unto you is born
this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the
Lord." Luke 2:11

You see we need to remember to celebrate the birth of
our savior. If it was not for his birth, there would be no
Christmas season, there would be no reason to celebrate.
Think about this, without the manger there would be no
cross. Where would we be without the cross? You see when
we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are celebrating a divine
miracle. Jesus came to this earth as a newborn baby, born of
a virgin who laid him a manger, When we .sing the song
"Away in a Manger" we are singing of a very important
night, one of the most important of all. If God had not sent
his son Jesus to be born of a virgin and laid in the manger,
we would have no hope of salvation and healing, there
would be no hope for the world today.

Most of us think about the cross and about how Jesus
died on that cross for our sins, and Pe certainly did, but
what if he had never been born in Bethlehem? Without the
manger there would be no cross, without the cross there
would be no redemption for our sins. Christmas is all about
salvation, we celebrate the holiday giving one another gifts,
God gave us the greatest gift, he sent his son Jesus to be
born in a stable, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a
manger.

In the Bible we can read in Luke 2 about the birth of
Jesus. Luke 2:4-16 "So Joseph also went up from the town
of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of
David, because be. belonged to the house and line of David.
He went-there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be
married to him and was expecting a child. While they were
there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave
birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped, him tn cloths and
.placed him in a manger, because there was no room for
them in the inn. And there, were shepherds. living out in the
.fields, nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An
angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the
Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the
angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good
news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in
the town: of David a Savior has been born to you; he is
Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a
baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.' Suddenly a
great company of the heavenly host appeared with the an-
gel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." When
the angels had left them and gone intoheaven, the shep-
herds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see
this thing that .has happened, which the Lord has told us
about." So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and
the baby, who was lying in the manger: When -they had seen
him, they spread the word concerning what had been told
them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at
what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all
these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds
returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they
had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told."

I wonder did the shepherds and the Wisemen really un-
derstand that this baby was really the savior 'of the world?
How did Mary really feel, did she really understand, that

the baby she gave birth to in Bethlehem would save the
world from sin? Did she realize that he was not only her
son, but her savior as well? What did Joseph really feel,
did he understand how important the son Mary had really
was, how did it feel to see God's son born? Many songs
and stories have been written over the years, but I wonder
has anyone ever really thought about how different every-
one's lives would have been without Jesus being born in
Bethlehem? Where would the world be today? Would we
be alive, would there be any hope, how would we live in a
world without a savior? Without the manger, where would
be? I know that many times I find myself talking to some-
one that knows the Lord and we will both say we could not
live a day without Jesus, or how in the world do people
make it without knowing the Lord?'I myself could not
imagine living in this world if there had never been the
manger and there had never been the cross. It would be a
world without hope. When we celebrate Christmas this
year remember hoW very important Christmas is, without
Christmas there would never have been an Easter or Resur-
rection Day. Be very thankful that there is a Christmas to
celebrate. Because of CHRISTmas we have hope, Jesus
was born, he lived, he was crucified and died, and rose
from the dead and lives today. Now that is something to
celebrate! Let's remember to keep CHRIST in our Christ-
mas, it really is all about him. Christmas is a celebration of
Christ Jesus birthday. I was thinking about birthday's and
how most of us at some time have enjoyed a birthday with
our family and friends. We probably expect that we will
have a Birthday Cake, presents and maybe even a party. I
wonder what Jesus would like for his Birthday this year?
Have you thought to put him on your Christmas list?
Maybe he would like us to share his hope with someone
that is hurting. Remember, he says in Matthew 25: 35-40
that when we help someone else we are helping him. "That
when you do it unto the least of these you do it to him "
For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty,
and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I
was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the right-
eous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hun-
gered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When
saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and
clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and
came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto
them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it
unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it
unto me." Maybe that is what Jesus would like for his
birthday for us to help others.

I know what Jesus wants the most of all, that is for us
to give him our hearts, to know him, to worship him, after
all he is the king of kings, the Lord of Lords, the savior of
the world. Will you come to him and really know him this
Christmas? He loves each of us so very much. He came as
a baby in the manger and went to the cross for our sins, his
love has no end, it is all around us. You see Jesus is God's
son, the savior of the world, he is the ultimate gift, he only
wants you to know him, to spend time with him, to wor-
ship him, he loves you, he desires to meet your every need,
to comfort you, to love you, to help you, to use you to help
others, to give you his health, his peace and his joy, all he
is looking for is your open heart.

The next time you sing or hear the song "Away in a
Manger" think about how important the manger is not
only to Christmas but to the cross, if Jesus had not been

without the cross there would be no salvation.
Christmas is all about salvation, we celebrate the
holiday giving each other gifts, God gave us the
greatest gift of all, he sent his son Jesus to be
born in a stable, wrapped in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.

In the Bible we can read in the book of Luke
chapter 2 about the birth of Jesus. "So Joseph
went also. He went from the town of Nazareth in
Galilee to Judea. That is where Bethlehem, .the
town of David, was. Joseph went there because
he belonged to the family line of David. He went
there'with Mary to be listed. Mary was engaged
to him. She was expecting a baby.

While Joseph and Mary were there, the time
came for the child to be born. She gave birth to
her first baby. It was a boy. She wrapped him in
large strips of cloth. Then she placed him in a
manger. There was no room for them in the inn.
There were shepherds living out in the fields
nearby. It was night, and they were looking after
their sheep. An angel of the Lord appeared to
them. And the glory of the Lord shone around
them. They were terrified.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid. I bring you good news of great joy. It is
for all the people. Today in the town of David a
Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the
Lord. Here is how you will know I am telling
you the truth. You will find a baby wrapped in
strips of cloth and lying in a manger." Suddenly
a large group of angels from heaven also ap-
peared. They were praising God. They said,
"May glory be given to God in the highest heav-
en! And may peace be given to those he is
pleased with on earth!" The angels left and went
into heaven. Then the shepherds said to one an-
other, "Let's go to Bethlehem. Let's see this thing
that has happened, which the Lord has told us
about." So they hurried off and found Mary and
Joseph and the Baby. The baby was lying in the
manger. After the shepherds had seen him, they
told everyone. They reported what the angel had
said about this child All who heard it were
amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But
Mary kept all these things like a secret treasure
in her heart. She thought about them over and
over."

I wonder did the shepherds and the Wisemen
really understand that this baby was really the
savior of the world? How did Mary really feel,
she was a virgin, yet she was having a baby,.
God's son? What did Joseph really feel, did he
understand how important this baby was? With-
out the manger, where would be? I could not
imagine living in this world if there had never
been the manger and there had never been the
cross. It would be a world without hope. When
we celebrate Christmas this year, remember how
very important Christmas is, without Christmas
there would never have been an Easter. Be very
thankful that there is a Christmas to celebrate.
Let's remember to, keep CHRIST in our Christ-
mas. Christmas is a celebration of Christ Jesus
birthday. I wonder what Jesus would like for his
Birthday this year? Have you thought to put him
on your Christmas list? Maybe Jesus would like
as to help others.

I know what Jesus wants the most of all, that
is for us to give him our hearts. He came as a
baby in the manger and went to the cross for our
sins, his love has no end, it is all around us, This
Christmas be sure to sing Away in a Manger, and
really think about how amazing Christmas is. I
want to share the words to this song with you
here, I hope that you will sing it and remember
how important the manger is to Christmas.

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky ,

Looked down where He .
lay \. ,- "
The little Lord Jesus '"
Asleep on the, hay ; j\\

The cattle are lowing --
The poor Baby wakes "
But little Lord Jesus -
No crying He makes ...

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky ,
And stay by my side, -,-
'Til morning is nigh.

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


Dear Classified Guys,
Last weekend I bought a sheet of ply-
wood and spent forty-five minutes
tying it to my roof rack. Considering
I only had some white nylon twine, it
became a feat of engineering to strap,
it on. I ran twine over the hood,
around the bumpers and through
both the front door windows.
Tightening the last knot, I realized I
couldn't open the doors because I
tied them shut! As I contemplated
my stupidity, a guy pulled up with a
small utility trailer. He loaded a
dozen sheets of plywood, threw on a
strap and took off before I could pull
a Dukes of Hazard and slide through
my twine-infested window. Needless
to say, I was jealous. Now I want to
buy a small trailer. It would be useful
for the upcoming bathroom remodel-
ing I promised my wife. However, I
know nothing about trailers. How
much can it carry? Can I pull
one with a car or do I need
a truck? Please help or Ill
be strapping the new
shower stall to my roof.

Cash: Unless you have a few extra
hours to strap the bathroom supplies to
your roof, a small utility trailer is a
good idea.


Carry: Besides, I'm not sure the
store would have enough twine for you.
Cash: As you can imagine, trailers
come in all shapes and sizes, from
small utility types to those designed to
carry heavy equipment.
Carry: In your case, a small trailer
like a 4' by 8' would work fine.
Although their specifications vary, they
will typically hold between 800 and
1000 pounds.
Cash: However before you buy one,
first look at the owner's manual of your
car to determine the vehicle's towing
capacity or if it can be used to tow a
trailer. For instance, a truck can pull


5000 pounds or more, but a small car
may be limited to only 1000 pounds.
Carry: Now when buying a small'
used.trailer, there are two main areas to
investigate. As always overall condition
is important, but you should also look
closely at the lights and the tires. Be sure
all the lights are in working order and the
tires are in good condition, not suffering
from any dry rot. It's best to find a trailer
where the tires don't need replacing.
Cash! As you have experienced, a
utility trailer can be very helpful.
However with all the time you save,
you wife may want you to remodel a
few other rooms.


Hitch Your Trailer
Normally we think of trailers as
something pulled behind a truck or a
car. However in the movie industry,
they have a slightly different meaning.
Most motion pictures today have a trail-
er that is shown prior to the movie's
release. The term was derived from the
days when the coming attractions were
shown at the end of a film, trailing the
main feature. However, patrons often
left the theater without watching them.
In today's mpvie theatres, these clips are
called previews and shown at the begin-
ning of the movie for better visibility.
Good Old Boys
The original TV series The Dukes of
Hazard made the bright orange 1969
Dodge Charger, known as The General
Lee, an icon. While the car's endless
stunt jumps seemed flawless, 309
General Lee's were used to produce the
series. Each jump typically damaged
the car's structural integrity sending it to
the scrap pile. As the series progressed,
finding more cars became increasingly
difficult, so producers started using
jump footage from previous episodes.

Camping forTwo
Whenever my husband and I go
camping, he's bound to forget some-
* thing. One year he forgot our sleep-
ing bags. That was a cold weekend.
The second time he forgot the
propane on our camping trailer. We
ate out a lot on that trip.
This year he was determined not to
forget a thing. For days he made a,
list, checked it twice, and made sure
everything was packed before we left.
He got in the car confident '.'e had
everything and pulled away. Less
than a mile down the road, he made a
u-turn and said, "I can't believe it."
"What did you forget this time?" I
asked.
Glancing in the rear view mirror,
he replied, "I forgot to hitch up the :
trailer!" u
(Thanks to Leslie S.)



This boat doesn't have a "trailer",
but it does come well dressed.
