A Mayo resident was
enjoying the afternoon at
her residence, 171 SW
Oakdale Rd., when she
was attacked Jan. 27 by
several of her son's black
and white pit bulls that
had gotten loose from
their pen on the back of
the property.
When Lafayette County
Sheriff's Office and
Lafayette Emergency
Medical Services person-
nel arrived at the scene,
they found Rebecca Wim-
berly, 58, at the door of her
greenhouse covered in
blood from severe lacera-
tions on her arms and
legs, according to the
LCSO incident report. She
lost a great deal of blood,
causing discoloration in
her feet and lips, accord-
ing to reports.
Benjamin Wimberly, the
owner of the dogs, shot
and killed the animals that
got loose, said authorities.
Rebecca Wimberley was
transported by helicopter
to Shands at UF. In addi-
tion to her wounds, she
was treated for rabies as a
precautionary measure.
An update on her condi-
tion was' unavailable at
press time.

LCA BETA observes Arbor Day


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter,
mayofreepressl@alltel.net


Braving chilly temperatures
and brisk winds on Friday, Jan.
25, at 8:30 a.m., members of
Lighthouse Christian Acade-
my's (LCA) junior BETA club
participated in Arbor day by
planting two trees at Veterans
Memorial Park of Mayo, locat-
ed across from Lafayette State
Bank on SR 27.
While planting the saplings, a
dogwood and a redbud,
Lafayette County Forestry, led
by Senior Forester Greg Mar-
shall, gave students a brief les-
son about Arbor Day. Marshall
also tested the students' knowl-
edge about the history of Arbor
Day, the scientific names of the
trees, and why we observe the
annual event. "Arbor Day com-
memorates the many benefits
trees provide for people and
communities and is typically
honored by planting trees in
neighborhoods, parks, and .
places where people come to-
gether," Marshall said.
The students were excited
about planting the trees as evi-


denced by the broad smiles on
their faces. Some of them re-
marked that it was fun and en-
joyed the hands-on learning ex-
perience. According to Mar-
shall, this was the first time:
LCA's BETA club had partici-
pated in the event.
Lafayette High School stu-
dents .also participated by


planting cypress and oak trees

"Let's have a fair fight.". If there are
rules for this in sports, surely we need
some in our relationships! We often be-
lieve that if we are not having conflict
we are in great shape and we tend to
measure the health of our relationships
by whether or not we have had a dis-
agreement or an argument lately. When
we are having conflict, we start think-
ing, "If we could just stop fighting, our
relationship would be great!" In reality,
a great relationship is not one with no
conflict, but one where issues get re-
solved. Accept the fact that you are two
different people, and you will have dif-
ferences of opinions. You will disagree,
you will argue. Avoiding conflict for the
sake of peace never brings peace, at least
for the one who is doing the avoiding,
and it sends the message to the other
person that what they are saying or do-
ing is okay, so there is never a need for
change.
In relationships, a "healthy" fight is a
way of two people disagreeing while
understanding that the goal is to stay
connected. It's not about being right,
proving wrong or fixing the other per-
son, and this can be tough to remember
in the heat of an argument. Ever notice
how many of your fights are the same
over and over? You have been here so
many times; you know exactly what the
other is going to say. This is a signal that
the issue has not been resolved and as
you repeat the same arguments, you are
pretty sure you won't be finding the an-
swer this time either.
So, if we understand that conflict will
be a part of our relationships, let's learn
how to fight fair with the goal of re-
maining connected:
First, commit to being direct and spe-
cific. Vague, indirect accusations give
the other person nowhere to begin reso-
lution, they know something is wrong,
but not sure if you agree with them
about exactly what the problem is. In
Matthew 18:15, the Bible says, "If your


Yoi DESERVE the BEST Hearing
for LESS...

Get the 2nm12 Prie E
Call Now (36) 330-290


brother sins against you,
go and show him his
fault, just between the
two of you..." When we
are specific, the problem
is exposed, and hopefully
the answers will be easier
to find. Also, tie the
problem to how it is hurt-
ing the relationship in-
stead of just being critical. Saying some-
thing like, "When you aren't honest with
me, it makes it hard to trust you," works
better than "You never tell the truth, you
are just a liar!"
To maintain a fair fight, keep to the is-
sue at hand. When the discussion turns
to blame, defensiveness and other issues,
it is time to stop and refocus. "We're get-
ting sidetracked, what is really impor-
tant here is that we are able to trust one
another...what will help solve this prob-
lem?"
No hitting below the belt. Being angry
is part of being passionate. That is why
those we love the most can drive us so
crazy but anger does not give us license
for being sarcastic, using foul language
or sending the other person on a guilt
trip. This will resolve nothing and re-
member the goal is to remain connected.
Agree beforehand that if the argument
escalates, the conversation will end and
be addressed at another time.
Finally, remember that disagreements
are part of a healthy relationship. They
don't have to be a big deal, but they will
be if we try to avoid them or allow them to
escalate. When you argue, talk about it as
it happens: "I know we are both mad
right now, but I want you to know that I
love you, and I love that I can disagree
with you and still know that you love
me." This is a huge step toward resolving
issues and keeping our hearts connected
and remember our hearts matter!

Watch the birds


"Original Sin" "Total Hereditary De-
pravity" man is born with nothing
within himself to recommend him to a
holy God (Psalm 58:3; Isaiah 64:6; Ro-
mans 3:23). His actions are wrong. His
thoughts are wrong. He has absolutely
nothing to offer God! Nothing to im-
press God with! And you are involved in
a struggle horrible, mostly negative
thoughts will be injected into your mind.
You'll experience, depending on who
you are, anything from perverted lusts to
horrible thoughts of taking your own life
or the life of another possibly your own
offspring. Your thoughts probably won't
be the same as those of another person.
What tempts and/or haunts your neigh-
bor may not bother you; no problem for
you. Maybe you are haunted by low self
esteem that has paralyzed you.
Someone else may be constantly
tempted regarding illicit sex whether it
be sex out of the marriage bond or sex


with someone of the
same sex. Another per-
son may constantly be '
bothered by thoughts
about the taste of one
kind or another alco-
holic beverage or illicit
drug. The thing that
he/she finds irresistible
doesn't even bother
you. Everyone has their temptations; the
"thoughts" come.
As someone has said, "You can't keep
a bird from landing but you can keep
him from building a nest." Don't dwell
on the negative thoughts as they flood
your thought life but turn you mind to
positive thoughts and considerations
(Philippians 4:8).

Naomi and The Segos in concert

at Bible Deliverance church


Naomi and The Segos
will be in concert at Bible
Deliverance Church in
Madison on Friday, Febru-
ary 1, at 7p.m. Admission
is free, however a love of-
fering will be received
during the concert. Bible
Deliverance Church is lo-
cated on South Range Ave.
in Madison, across from
the cotton gin.
What began in the early
1950s is still going strong
today! Naomi and The Se-
gos have been singing
over 50 years and has the
richest history in southern
gospel music. The Sego
Brothers and Naomi,
which began in the early
1950s was the first group
in gospel .music to sell
over one million copies of
the song "Sorry, I Never
Knew You." Down
through the years, Naomi
has recorded many signa-
ture songs such as "This Is
Just What Heaven Means
To Me," "Satisfied With
Me," "Silver And Gold,"
"Until Then," "Hallelujah


Square," and countless
others.
Naomi is considered to
be one of the first five
ladies of gospel music. In
the early years of gospel
music, it was not common
to have a female vocalist
in a gospel quartet. It all
started with a sick mem-
ber in the line-up of the
Sego Brothers. James, who
was Naomi's husband,
called on Naomi to fill the
vacancy in the line-up for
the television broadcast.
As one would say, "the
rest is history." The quar-


tet changed their name to
the Sego Brothers and
Naomi. After the passing
of her husband, the group
changed their name to
Naomi and The Segos.
Still today, Naomi and
The Segos travel 200 plus
dates per year proclaim-
ing the gospel across the
country. Naomi recently
celebrated another mile-
stone with the recording
of her 75th project.
For more information or
to reserve seating, please

Quilt of Holes


As I faced my Maker at
the last judgment, I knelt
before the Lord along with
all the other souls. Before
each of us laid our lives like
the squares of a quilt in
many piles; an angel sat be-
fore each of us sewing our
quilt squares together into a
tapestry that is our life.
But as my'angel took each
piece of cloth off the pile, I
noticed how ragged and
empty each of my squares
was. They were filled with
giant holes. Each square
was labeled with a part of
my life that had been diffi-
cult, the challenges and
temptations I was faced
with in every day life.
I saw hardships that I en-
dured, which were the
largest holes of all. I glanced
around me. Nobody else
had such squares. Other
than a tiny hole here and
there, the other tapestries
were filled with rich color
and the, bright hues of
worldly fortune. I gazed
upon my own life and was
disheartened. My angel
was sewing the ragged
pieces of cloth together,
threadbare and empty, like
binding air.
Finally the time came
when each life was to be
displayed, held. up to the
light, the scrutiny of truth.
The others rose; each in
turn, holding up their ta-
pestries. So filled their lives
had been. My angel looked
upon me, and nodded for
me to rise.
My gaze dropped to the
ground in shame. I hadn't
had all the earthly for-
tunes. I had love in my life,
and laughter. But there had
also been trials of illness,
and wealth, and false accu-
sations that took from me
my.world, as I knew it.


I had to start over many
times. I often struggled
with the temptation to
quit, only to somehow
muster the strength to pick
up and begin again. I spent
many nights on my knees
in prayer, asking for help
and guidance in my life. I
had often been held up to
ridicule, which I endured
painfully, each time offer-
ing it up to the Father in
hopes that I would not
melt within my skin be-
neath the judgmental gaze
of those who unfairly
judged me.
And now, I had to face
the truth. My life was what
it was, and I had to accept it
for what it was. I rose and
slowly lifted the combined
squares of my life to the
light. An awe-filled gasp
filled the air. I gazed
around at the others who
stared at me with wide
eyes.
Then, I looked upon the
tapestry before me. Light




FAR


flooded the many holes,
creating an image, the face
of Christ. Then our Lord
stood before me, with
warmth and love in His
eyes. He said, 'Every time
you gave over your life to
Me, it became My life, My
hardships, and My strug-
gles.
Each point of light in
your life is when you
stepped aside and let Me
shine through, until there
was more of Me than there


was of you.'
May all our quilts be
threadbare and worn, al-
lowing Christ to shine
through! God determines
who walks into your
life....it's up to you to de-
cide who you let walk
away, who you let stay, and
who you refuse to let go.'
When there is nothing
left but God that is when
you find out that God is all
you need.

February is National Heart Health mOnth


Women and heart attacks


If you're a woman, you
may not believe you're as
vulnerable to a heart at-
tack as men but you are.
Women account for nearly
half of all heart attack
deaths. Heart disease is
the number one killer of
both women and men.
There are differences in
how women and men re-
spond to a heart attack.
Women are less likely than
men to believe they're
having a heart attack and
more likely to delay in
seeking emergency treat-
ment.
Fuither, women tend to
be about 10 years older
than men when they have
a heart attack. They are
more likely to have other
conditions, such as dia-
betes, high blood pressure,


and congestive heart fail-
ure-making it all the more
vital that they get proper
treatment fast.
Women should learn the
heart attack warning signs.
These are:
Pain or discomfort in
the center of the chest.
Pain or discomfort in
other areas of the upper
body, including the arms,
back, neck, jaw, or stom-
ach.
Other symptoms, such
as a shortness of breath,
breaking out in a cold
sweat, nausea, or light-
headedness.
As with men, women's
most common heart attack
symptom is chest pain or
discomfort. But women
are somewhat more likely
than men to experience


some of the
other com-
mon symp-
toms, partic-
ularly short-
ness of
breath, nau-
sea/vomit- Priscilla
ing, and back Cashman
or jaw pain.
If you feel heart attack
symptoms, do not delay.
Remember, minutes mat-
ter! Do not wait for more
than a few minutes-5 min-
utes at most to call 9-1-1.
Your family will benefit
most if you seek fast treat-
ment.

Trammell Trio. Like the
others, Eric is very min-
istry minded. "It's all
about the message," he
states. "I want to be an en-
couragement to people
and to share the Word
through song to unbeliev-
ers. It's very humbling,
yet, also very rewarding
when someone tells you
how a song you've sung
has been inspiring to
them, or helped them in
some way deal with a
problem or difficult situa-
tion." Phillips has been
with the trio since its be-
ginning.
The newest member of
the Mark Trammell Trio is
Dustin Sweatman. Dustin
is twenty-two years old
and hales from Cumming,
GA. For the past three
years Dustin sang with
the Dixie Melody Boys.
He is not only a very tal-
ented lead singer, but is an
awesome keyboard artist
as well.
Steve Hurst is a
renowned musician, in-
structor and mentor to
many of today's favorite


Gospel Artists. He has
been involved in ministry
for over thirty years. Steve
loved music as a child and
furthered his training
throughout his schooling.
He graduated from
George Peabody College
for Teachers of Vanderbilt.
Following graduation he
began working as a music
instructor for groups and
soloists as well as working
in music schools around
the country. He started the
Steve Hurst School of Mu-
sic in 1992. Steve now
travels with the Mark
Trammell Trio singing se-
lected songs on each pro-
gram.
A rich history of south-
ern gospel music can be
found within the roots of
the Mark Trammell Trio.

Dees named teacher of the year at BHS


Special to the Free Press
Julianna (ulie) Dees has
been chosen as Teacher of
the Year at Branford High
School. The annual event
is sponsored each year by
the Suwannee Foundation
for Excellence in Educa-
tion, Inc.
Ms. Dees is the Culinary
Operations Instructor for
9-12 (Family and Con-
sumer Sciences.) She has
held this position at Bran-
ford High School since
2005. Her prior teaching
experience includes: Gen-
eral Science at Columbia
High School, 1997-1998:

She holds a bachelors de-
gree in Health Science Ed-


ucation from the Universi-
ty of Florida.
When asked about her
greatest contribution to the
education of students she
said, "One of the biggest
assets that I contribute to
my students is teaching
them that 'Failure is not an
option.' I have always felt
that taking pride in what
one does in life reaps fu-
ture benefits. On a daily
basis I instill real life expe-
rience with the subject
matter that I teach. Teach-
ing and encouraging stu-
dents effective teamwork
creates positive learning
environments where goals
can be obtained no matter
how big or small."
Dees is very involved in
her community, along with
the students she teaches.

Continued From Page 1A

ing Lafayette County at the an-
nual event will be Land, who
participated last year.
According to the Florida Farm
Bureau, the purpose of the event
is to reflect upon the importance
of agriculture in our lives as we
collect food items to give to those
who are unable to afford one of
the most basic necessities to sus-
tain life. "We remain concerned
that some Americans cannot af-
ford to buy the food they need,
but we are proud of the role
Florida farmers play in produc-
ing the most affordable food in
the world," Florida Farm Bureau
said.
Every year, Farm Bureau part-
ners with the Ronald McDonald
House to make "Food Check-
Out Week" possible by giving
back to the community.


Evolution in schools?

mandatory in every school and to disallow the
teaching of any other explanation about how
the earth, universe, and man came into exis-
tence.
"The new Sunshine State Standards for Sci-
ence no longer present evolution as theory but
as scientific fact," Robert Koon, chairperson,
said.
At this time, a copy of the draft of the re-
vised Sunshine State Standards is unavailable
to the public. For a short period of time in De-
cember of 2007, FDOE allowed the public to
view the draft and submit their comments. Af-
ter the commenting period was complete,
FDOE removed the link to the document.
FDOE will rule on the matter Feb. 19.
Lafayette County School Board members
have always believed students attending
Lafayette Elementary and Lafayette High
School should be taught science, as should
every student in the state. They also under-
stand the importance of every teacher imple-
menting the Sunshine State Standards in their
classrooms and have observed how effective.
they are in improving test scores as well as
every student's ability to learn and retain that
knowledge.
The meeting, called for the purpose of vot-
ing on the resolution, lasted about 15 minutes.
Be sure to watch for the next installment to

With 4:38 remaining in the third
quarter, senior Natalie Land stood
at the charity stripe needing only
one point to become the area's all-
time leading scorer for both boys
and girls. As she bounced the bas-
ketball on the hardwood then giv-
ing it a spin in her hands, the first
of two attempts was nothing but
net giving her 3,260 career points.
After hitting the first free throw
time was called where Land was
presented the game ball for her ac-
complishment. She finished with
23 points in a 68-49 win over visit-
ing Florida High.
The final two points did not
come easy in a game that was very
physical. "They were hard to get.
This is a big honor for me and I am
really, really happy," said Land. "I
knew I was close to the record
tonight. It is a great honor to be up
there with all the great scorer's in
the area."
The record fell when Land, as


well as other Lady Hornets, were
not enjoying a good scoring night.
"It was just a bad shooting night,"
said the senior guard. "It was in
the back of my mind and I think I
was trying too hard. I think we
were a little fatiqued from the P.K.
Yonge game earlier this week We
came out and won and that is the
main thing."
The win improved the Lady
Hornets to 21-2 on the season.
Sunshine Reid, who is one of the
most underrated players in the
area, finished with 15 points but
had six assists and five steals as
well as four rebounds. Land
pulled down 24 rebounds to go
with her 23 points for a double-
double. She had eight assists and
five steals. Cartesha Macklin fin-
ished in double figures with 15

Taking care of the basketball is something
the Lafayette Lady Hornets have done well
most of the season. But that was not the case
last Thursday night when the
Blue Wave of P.K. Yonge rolled
into Mayo. Yonge, one of two
teams to pin a defeat on coach
Jimmy Blankenship's ball club
this season, forced the Lady Hor-
nets into 19 turnovers in the
game. Seventeen of those came in
the second half after just two in
the first two quarters.
"It was obvious that we took
care of the ball in the first half,"
said Coach Blankenship after his
team posted .a hard-fought 73-59
win over the Blue Wave. "We got
a lead and sort of relaxed a little
bit. We made some mistakes by
doing some things we should not
have done. Yonge stepped up
their defense in the second half
and got a little more physical. We
expected to take a run or two NATALIE L

The Lafayette Hornets placed three
players in double figures en route to a
72-52 district win over a good Bran-
ford team last Thursday night.
Joseph Edwards scored 16 points
while teammate Jonathan Sellers
added 13. Joey Watson tossed in 10
points with Kevin Waters just missing
double digits with nine points. The
win improved Lafayette to 11-9 on the
season with two games left to play in
the regular season. The boys district
tournament tips off next week.
The Hornets came out of the gate
rather slow allowing Branford to
move in front 7-2 at the onset. The
Hornets never led until the second
quarter when they took a 24-23 lead on
Seller's short jumper. Devin Bellamy
drilled a three-point basket for a 27-24
lead and the Hornets never looked
back.
Hornet coach Daryl Fletcher felt like
his team struggled early. "I felt like we
did not play with a lot of passion and
got off to a slow start," said Fletcher.
"We were not smooth and we were
just not making the shots. It was

year has always been a
state championship," said
Land of the third ranked
Lady Hornets. "We just
want to keep winning."
Lafayette led by as
many as 27 points in the
game. Trailing 60-39 in the
fourth quarter, the Lady
Seminoles put together a
10-0 run to narrow the
margin to 60-46 but could
get no closer.
Reid opened the scoring
for the Lady Hornets with
a three-point basket on the
game's first play. Reid
drilled a second trey in the
first period and a rebound
basket by Eileen Givens
gave Lafayette a 18-7 lead.
The Lady Hornets led 42-
23 at the half. Reid's third
trey and consecutive bas-
kets by Land and Lilli
Prine ended the first half
scoring.
Coach Jimmy Blanken-

nets. "Coach (Jerry) Hill

Chris Craun was raised
in Marietta, Ga., where he
attended high school at
George Walton High. His
parents had always en-
couraged him to pursue
his education and to not
attend college was not an
option. Working his way
through school, Chris
Craun was the first mem-
ber of his family to contin-
ue his education beyond

tough. Just one of those
nights."
Lafayette fell behind by
as many as eight points
before rallying. "'We are a
scrappy team and we like
to get after people," said
Coach Fletcher. "We got
great looks at the basket
but we were just missing.
We had to adjust our
game."
The adjustment came af-
ter the opening quarter
when Coach Fletcher's
team pressured the ball,
The pressure caused Bran-
ford to turn the ball over


on four consecutive pos-
sessions allowing the Hor-
nets to assume the lead on
Bellamy's bomb. "He is
big time," said Coach
Fletcher of Bellemy's bas-
ket. "I have never gotten
upset with these guys in
taking an open shot. That
is what we want. Devin
came up big for us
tonight."
Eric McIntyre finished
with six points, well be-
low his average. Antwan
Brown netted eight and
Sergio Perez scored two
points. Chet Clipper led
Branford with 16 points
and all those came in the


first two quarters.
Clipper failed to score in
the second half. Tim Clark
added 13 points and fresh-
man sensation John Perry
netted eight points that in-
cluded a dunk. Kyle Cer-
tain had 10 points in a
strong outing. Keiron
Feltz finished with five
points.
Coach Fletcher said his
team is working hard for
the upcoming district
tournament but still has a
ways to go. "We are get-
ting there but right now
we are not ready," he said.
"We just need to get our
mind set that we can win '


it. Tournament time fits
us. We are a scrappy team
and like to get with it."
The penalty:for not fin-
ishing higher in the regu-
lar season standings is
having to play three
straight nights in tourna-
ment play. But Fletcher
said-his team strives on
that. "We are going to look
forward to playing three
straight nights," he said.
"With our style of play, we
are going to go out and
play our hearts out."
Lafayette will host the
boys district tournament
beginning Tuesday, Febru-
ary 5.


Property tax

amendment passes


Continued From Page 1A

to pass the legislation that
promises to increase sav-
ings for property owners.
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist is a major voice of the
amendment and strongly
believes it is a solution to
the state's ballooning
property tax crisis. "The
taxcut package will jump
start Florida's housing
market and make Florida
even more business friend-
ly, which will generate
more revenue for state and
local governments and
schools," Gov. Crist said in
his weekly newsletter
"Notes From the Capitol"
dated Jan. 25.
Many Floridians partici-
pated in early voting while
others waited until Jan. 29
to cast their votes. On a lo-
cal level, according to Lana
Morgan, Lafayette County
Supervisor of Elections, a
small number of registered
voters came to her office to
vote early.
As a result of the elec-
tion, Florida voters over-
whelmingly approved the
amendment, thus making
it law. Prior to the election,
a majority of Floridians,
especially in Lafayette
County, feared it would
force communities to cut
out essential services and
have other devastating ef-
fects. Even after the elec-
tion, the same sentiments
continue to be expressed.
According to the Florida
Department of Elections,
2,629,400 voted in favor of
the amendment while
1,474,905 chose to defeat it.
The majority of voters in
Lafayette County rejected
it, 1,121, while .645 said
they wanted it to become
law. According to county
records, there are 4,277
registered voters in the
county Onl.y. percent


turned out to vote, accord-
ing to Morgan.
In contrast, voters in the
surrounding counties of
Dixie and Gilchrist voted
to pass the amendment. In
addition to Lafayette
County, the other counties
who voted against it are
Duval, Gadsden,, Hamil-
ton, Hardee, Jackson, Jef-
ferson, Leon, Liberty,
Madison, Putnam, Suwan-
nee, Taylor, and Wakulla.
In addition to voting on
the fate of the property tax
amendment, Florida vot-
ers chose a Democratic
and Republican candidate
to be on the upcoming
presidential election ballot.
According to the Florida
Department of
Elections, Hillary Clin-
ton (Dem), and John Mc-
Cain (Rep) won Florida's
vote.
Be sure to watch the Free
Press to find out how
Lafayette County, as well
as you as a.property own-
er, will be affected by this
property tax law.

founder, J. Sterling Mor-

nature and its beauty so
much that he kept a de-

Lafayette County


Toxic Roundup


February 16

Bring household hazardous wastes such as paint,
insecticides, used oil, solvents, fluorescent lamps,
used batteries, old fertilizer, cleaning chemicals and
stale gasoline to the 2008 Lafayette County Toxic
Roundup. The Toxic Roundup will be at the Mayo
Community Center on Saturday, February 16, from 9
a.m. 3 p.m. These items are some of the many
household hazardous wastes that the Toxic
Roundup will safely dispose of for you. Proper dis-
posal of these products will help prevent contami-
nation of our water supply and keep our environ-
ment safe.
Simply bring your household hazardous wastes to
the collection center and the trained attendants will
unload and handle all your hazardous wastes; there
is no need to even get out of your car! The process is
quick, easy, and free of charge for Lafayette County
residents and fee based for businesses.
STo transport these hazardous materials, carefully
pack the hazardous waste containers in boxes with
dividers. If a container leaks, pack it in a larger con-
tainer with an absorbent material such as catlitter or
oil absorbent. Do not mix different or unknown ma-
terials together. All containers must be labeled. If
you cannot identify the contents label it "unknown."
Do not bring explosives such as ammunition, dy-
namite and blasting agents; reactives such as crys-
tallized ethers, picric acid and sodium and phos-
phorus metals; infectious wastes; or pressurized
cylinders such compressed gases.
For more information, call the County Extension
Office at 386-294-1279. The Toxic Roundup is spon-
sored by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection and Lafayette County Commission.


Tax deeds and tax certificates


As everyone knows,
there are ti~o certainties
in life and one of them is
that you will have to pay
taxes. What many people
don't know is that when
you don't pay your taxes
on real estate that you
own, other people can do
that for you, whether
you want them to or not.
Those people don't do
that out of the goodness
of their hearts; they do so
with hopes that they will
be able to purchase your
property for next to
nothing and make a
windfall profit.
Most people usually
don't willfully refuse to
pay property taxes. The
main reason people don't
pay taxes is because they
don't have the money.
When it comes down to
either paying property
taxes or paying for food,
clothing, making a mort-
gage.payment and buy-
ing other necessities of
life in order to survive,
most people will pay to
survive.
We at Three Rivers Le-
gal Services often see
people after they have
failed to pay taxes and'
long after a problem has
been created, many times
after it's too late to do
anything about it. Since
an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure,
this public service an-
nouncement is written in
hopes that it may pre-
vent a truly unfortunate
and unfair result when a
person loses valuable
real property for a frac-
tion of what it is worth,
and gets absolutely noth-
ing for it.
If taxes are not paid,
the Clerk of Court in
each and every county in


the state is authorized to
sell a document called a
tax certificate to anyone
who pays the taxes that
are due on any specific
piece of real property.
The sale of tax certifi-
cates must be advertised
and proper notice of the
sale must be given. The
sale occurs on the steps.
of the courthouse, just
like foreclosure sales.
Interestingly, the sale
of tax certificates is much
different than the sale of
property for failure to
pay a mortgage. The bid-
ding is all about the in-
terest rate the buyer will
be willing to accept as
his or her rate of return
on his or her investment.
Florida Statute provides
that the sale be conduct-
ed in an auction style
with participants bidding
DOWNWARD on inter-
est rates, starting at 18%.
If the property attracts
enough attention, it is
possible for a tax certifi-
cate to be purchased at
ZERO interest, though
that rarely occurs.
After the Tax Certifi-
cate has been purchased,
the law does not allow
the person who pur-
"chased a Tax Certificate
to contact the owner of
the lad anda attempt to
get payment. A person
who purchases a Tax
Certificate usually will
sit quietly waiting for the
expiration of two years,
and then that person will
apply to the clerk for a
tax deed.
Of course, if taxes for
later years aren't paid,
then Tax Certificates for
those years will be avail-
able for purchase and all
taxes must be paid before
a tax deed will be issued.


The holder of the most
recent tax certificate is
said to have a 'higher
priority' than the holder
of an older certificate,
Sbut the holder of ANY
Tax Certificate will be
paid before any tax deed
is issued.
The classified section
of all newspapers will
contain a section called
"Legal Notices." When a
person who holds a Tax
Certificate seeks to ob-
tain a Tax Deed, a notice
of application will be put
in the newspaper and
such notices are labeled
quite clearly as Notice of
Application for Tax
Deed. Such notices must
be published in a news-
paper to notify and ad-
vise the general public
and anyone who might
have an interest in the
land that someone is
seeking to claim the legal
title to real property by
virtue of paying the
delinquent taxes. Such
interested persons may
want to bid on the prop-
erty-in order to protect
their financial interests in
the property.
The legal procedure
must be followed before
a Tax Deed will be is-
sued. There are, on occa-
sion, 'loopholes' or
'cracks' through which
things can fall, and mis-
takes can be made, but as
a general rule, if and
when a Tax Deed is is-
sued, it is Presumed to
be valid and enforceable.
The burden of proving
that a mistake had been
made that was of suffi-
cient magnitude to justi-
fy setting aside the Tax
Deed would be on the
person seeking to have
the Tax Deed set aside.


That normally does not
occur and the sale of
property by the Clerk of
Court and the issuance of
a Tax Deed is usually FI-
NAL.
The best advice, as
with all things, is to pay
your taxes on time so
that you don't become
delinquent. However, if
your taxes become delin-
quent and a Tax Certifi-
cate is issued, do every-
thing you can to pay the
delinquent taxes, PLUS
the interest that is due
the holder of the Tax
Certificate, and other
charges, BEFORE a Tax
Deed is issued.
The goodnews is that
even if taxes have been
delinquent for years, and
even if there are several
Tax Certificates being
held by.people on your
property, and even if
there is a date scheduled
for the sale of the proper-
ty on the steps of the
courthouse, if you can
pay the taxes due at any
time PRIOR to the time
that the sale occurs and
the Tax Deeds is actually
issued, you can redeem
your property.
The next best advice is
that if you can't come up
with the money to pay
the delinquent taxes, you
should sell the property
on your own and get
what you can for your
property BEFORE the
property is sold by the
Clerk and the Tax Deed
is issued. Otherwise, you
will lose all of your right,
title and interest in real
property, for no compen-
sation or money, whatso-
ever, in all probability,
once the Tax Deed is is-
sued.
Finally, as with all mat-
ters, should you have any
questions about your le-
gal rights and responsi-
bilities, you should con-
sult with a lawyer. If you
cannot afford a lawyer,
you can call the Three
Rivers Legal Services pro-
gram and find out if you
qualify for our services.
The foregoing is pro-
vided by the Three Rivers
Legal Services program
which serves a seventeen
county area in North
Florida from its offices in
Gainesville, Lake City
and Jacksonville. It is
funded, in part, by mon-
eys from the Legal Ser-
vices Corporation as well
as from donations from
private citizens and vari-
ous civic and community
organizations. It provides
free legal assistance to in-
comne-eligible individuals
or other qualified indi-
viduals, in civil matters.

The Battle of Olustee


Re-enactment revisits the Civil War


Imagine for a moment, a nearby event that combines the
re-enactment of Florida's most significant Civil War battle,
living history programs to educate and entertain, a hefty
dose of area talent on stage, foods to whet theappetite of
the most finicky eater, high quality arts and crafts of every
genre, and yes, even lots of things for the kids to do.
Imagine no more. All this and more, much more, will be
available during the weekend of Feb. 15-17 as the nation's
second largest annual Civil War re-enactment is hosted at
Sthe 32nd Annual Olustee Battle Re-enactment and 30th
Annual Olustee Battle Festival in Lake City.
For those new to the area, the event commemorates the
144th anniversary of the Battle of Olustee, which
Happened on Feb. 20, 1864 as a force of approximately
5,000 Confederate troops confronted 5,500 Union Army
forces. The Union forces included three regiments of black
Soldiers, including the 54th Massachusetts, whose earlier
Exploits at South Carolina's Fort Wagner are detailed in
the movie Glory.


The Confederate victory at Olustee was the primary
reason that Tallahassee remained as the only Southern
capitol that didn't fail to Union forces during the Civil
War."
During the week of Olustee, re-enactors portraying
President Abraham Lincoln and Confederate General
Robert E. Lee will provide living history programs at a
wide array of area schools. The Lake City/Columbia
County Historical Museum will present a program entitled
"Angels of Mercy" during the festival weekend as the
heroics of the group are honored in this year's festival
commemorative poster. The sutler's village at Olustee
Battlefield provides a glimpse back to the mercantile
business in the 1860s. The authentic campsites near the
battlefield provide a historic view into the living
conditions of the soldiers who fought so valiantly for their
respective sides in a war that pitted brother against brother.
More than 2,000 re-enactors from around the country
will participate in the battle on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 17,


on the site of the actual struggle. A smaller re-enactment
will be held on Saturday afternoon. The entire weekend
will be filled with the opportunity to watch medical
demonstrations, period music, troop maneuvers, canon fire
and the chance to learn about the heroics and lessons
provided by the Civil War.
Admission to the battlefield is free on Friday as
thousands of area school children conduct field trips to the
battlefield. On Saturday and Sunday, admission is $5for
adults and $2 for children. Pre-school kids, ages 5 and
under, are free. There is also a shuttle bus service available
on Saturday and Sunday from the Lake City Municipal
Airport and Baker County Correctional Institute. Round-
trip costs are $1 for adults and 50 cents for children. The

RTYABLE 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:

Experts say the most im-
portant thing people can do
to help their pets is to get
them spayed or neutered.
This means the animals get
an operation, to be sure they
can't have kittens or pup-
pies. They are asleep during
the operation, so they aren't
scared or in pain.
Spaying and neutering are
so important because there
are so many animals need-
ing care and not enough
homes or shelters for them.
One cat or dog can have
many litters in its life. Its
kittens or puppies can have
many litters, too. This can
end up creating thousands
of new cats and dogs.

Remember, do not leave
pets in vehicles for any
length of time due to the
heat and humidity or cold

8 Things You Didn't Know About Your Teeth


Oral health is often a window to overall health.
Evidence supports the link between poor oral health
and such conditions as stroke, premature birth and
diabetes. Other conditions, such as HIV/AIDS and
osteoporosis, may show preliminary signs in your
mouth before other areas of the body are affected.
Also, some of your daily activities or habits can
affect your oral health. Therefore, it pays to pay
attention to your teeth and gums.
Elisa Mello, DDS and clinical assistant professor
at NYU College of Dentistry who, with her husband
Ramin Tabib, DDS, established their practice, NYC
Smile Design provides this valuable insight into
dental hygiene.
1. Millions of Americans can crack a walnut with
their teeth. While most adults exert about 20 to 40
pounds of pressure when their teeth make contact,
millions of Americans exert as much as 250 pounds
of pressure on their teeth enough to crack a
walnut. These teeth grinders are known as bruxers.
Bruxism may be mild and may not even require
treatment. However, it can be frequent and severe
enough to lead to damaged teeth, jaw disorder,
headaches, and other problems. To prevent damage
to the teeth, mouth guards or appliances have been
used to treat teeth grinding and clenching.
2. Bulimia and acid reflux can destroy tooth
enamel. Many people suffering from bulimia are
able to hide the disorder from others but it is more
difficult to keep it a secret from your dentist,
Enamel erosion is a major sign of bulimic behavior.
And acid reflux, whereby stomach acid flows into
the esophagus and mouth, can cause tooth and gum
erosion.
3. Swimming in overly chlorinated pools can wear
away the enamel in frequent swimmers. Fluoride
treatments can be given to help keep the teeth
strong. Swimming with a well-adapted and custom-
fitted mouth guard, which can minimize exposure of
teeth to chlorine, also helps.
4. Soda and citrus drink overuse can be caustic to
tooth enamel. The average American drinks more
Than 53 gallons of soft drinks each year, more than
any other beverage, including milk, beer, coffee, or
water. Phosphoric acid in soda and citric acid in
citrus drinks can cause tooth enamel corrosion and
the sugar can cause cavities.
5. Most people don't know they have bad breath.


Dr. Mello suggests this test: Using dental floss or a
tongue scrapper, sniff either the floss or the scrapper.
If your mouth is clean, you won't have a telltale smell.
6. Infection and trauma can cause tooth enamel
defects. Nutritional deficiencies during infancy,
antibiotic use such as tetracycline, high fever, and
trauma can all lead to tooth enamel irregularities such
as pitting.
7. Eighty percent of Americans over the age of 35
have some form of gum disease. It can range from
simple gum inflammation, called gingivitis, to serious.
disease that results.in damage to the bone. In
gingivitis, the gums become red and swollen.They,. ,
can bleed easily. Untreated gingivitis can lead to.
periodontitis, in which the gums pull away from the
teeth and form pockets of infection. If ignored, the
bones, gums and connective tissue supporting the
teeth are destroyed.
8. One in four adults age 60 and older has lost all of
his/her teeth. A good oral hygiene program should
include twice daily brushing, flossing, eating a
balanced diet, limiting between-meal snacks, and
regular visits to your dentist for professional cleaning
and oral exams.
New York based restorative and cosmetic dentists
Drs. Mello and Tabib emphasize that treatment for
these oral healthcare problems can range from simple
cosmetic services such as teeth-whitening to extensive
full-mouth reconstruction. But remember that an
ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of
cure.
