Skateboard

proposal

resurrected

Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
Advocates of a proposed skate-
board park attended a county
commission board meeting on
Monday, March 10 in an attempt
to convince commissioners one
more time that Mayo could benefit
greatly from having the facility.
They also hoped the commission-
ers would understand their con-
cerns about wanting their children
to have a safe place to skateboard
away from the busy streets in
Mayo.
Approximately 319 registered
voters signed a petition in favor of
setting aside a parcel of land to
build a skateboard park where
children will be safe rather than
skateboarding along the streets
and sidewalks in town.
"We have recognized the need
for and benefits of a skate park
and believe that our county.
should aid us by parceling a por-
tion of public land for this use and
fund, build, and maintain a skate
park as it would a tennis court,
basketball court, swimming area,
playground, baseball diamond, or
other general use public area," the
petition states.

Suwannee River rises,

overflows banks


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
In less than a month, the Suwannee
River has risen several feet in some
places and much higher in others.
One of the springs near Troy Springs
State Park is completely under water,
including the half-mile creek that runs
from it to the Suwannee River.
At the site where a ferry many years
earlier had docked, unloaded, and
loaded passengers as well .as durable
goods at Old and New Troy, the river
has completely covered the impres-


sion it left as a reminder on the bank.
Construction work on renovating
Ruth Walker Springs has also been af-
fected by the early stages of the flood.
According to Kevin Wright,
spokesperson for the Suwannee River
Water Management District, the water
has flooded that area and the project
will have to be delayed until the situa-
tion improves. "we are waiting to start
work until the river levels go back
down. We have the Alapaha, Santa Fe
and Withlacoochee rivers above flood
stage. We don't want to start a project

In a hearing on Feb. 19, Judge Dar-
ren Jackson awarded a 1989 Win-
nebag6 that was seized for transport-
ing 190 pounds of marijuana, to the
sheriff's office. This motorhome will
be converted to county property and
used to pull the Lafayette County
Mobile Command Post.
These are te latest arrests in the

I REIGOI


Positive or


negative
As a child I remember my
mother saying, "If you smile
the whole world smiles with
you. If you frown you frown
alone." Often your periods of
depression are brought on, not
by others and what they have
done to you,.but by yourself.
Matthew Henry, writing about
Jonah said, "...he was foolishly
afflicting himself...and still Matier
added more and more to his
own affliction." Jonah was pouting and God re-
moved the shelter he was hiding under. God pre-
pared a worm, (Jonah 4:7) to destroy his shelter.
God had to move to wake up Jonah. God wants
to motivate Christians to use the gifts He gave
them! He wants then to be happy in His service;
"...believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and
full of glory:" (I Peter 1:8).
God may use positive or negative methods to get
your attention. Moses was encouraged in a posi-
tive manner "...he endured, as seeing Him who is
invisible," (Hebrews 11:27). Others were provoked
in negative ways. For example, after the deaths of
Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5:1-10 we see in
verse 11, "...great fear came upon all the church..."
- They were awakened to the fact that God meant
what He says and says what He means!
Will it be the promises of God as revealed in his
Word, the Bible, that motivate you? God has
promised abundant blessing to those who obey
Him. One of the promises simple to experience is
found in Malachi 3:10. God says, If you'll do this,
I'll do this. If you will tithe I will bless you for it.
The blessings will be so obvious to you. You tithe
and watch God bless. You may not experience the
blessing the first time you put your 10% in the of-
fering plate but you will be blessed. Ask-anyone
you know who tithes if God hasn't blessed them.
So, you can see, God uses positive incentives.
As far as the negative motivators such as men-
tioned in passages like Hebrews 12:6 the chastise-
ment of the Lord can come into your life (or any-
one else's for that matter). God wants to correct
you, to teach you as a father does his son.

keep our influence where
we do. The "Serenity
Prayer" offers a great ex-
planation:
"God, grant me the
serenity (calm and with-
out worry, stress or dis-
turbance) to accept the
things I cannot change
(have no power over), the
courage (the ability to
face danger, difficulty, un-
certainty, or pain without
being overcome by fear or
being detoured from a
chosen course of action)
to change the things I can
(that I do have power
over), and the wisdom to
know the difference.
The Bible tells us in
James 1:5 that "If anyone
lacks wisdom, they
should ask God, who
gives generously to all
without finding fault, and
it will be given to him."
This means that we can
bring our problems to
God and ask the question:
Do I have power to
change something in this
situation, and if I do,
where? When we do, He
will generously give us
wisdom without blaming
and finding fault. Why
would God do this? He
wants us to have strong,
healthy relationships, be-
cause our hearts do mat-
ter.

Easter this year is:
As you may know, Easter is always
the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon af-
ter the Spring Equinox (which is March
20).
This dating of Easter is based on the
lunar calendar that Hebrew people used
to identify Passover, which is why it
moves around on our Roman calendar.
Found out a couple of things you
might be interested in!
Based on the above, Easter can actual-
ly be one day earlier (March 22) but that
is pretty rare.
This year is the earliest Easter any of
us will ever see the rest of our lives! And
only the most elderly of our population


Sunday March 23
have ever seen it this early (95 years old
or above!). And none of us have ever, or
will ever, see it a day earlier! Here are the
facts:
The next time Easter will be this ear-
ly (March 23) will be the year 2228 (220
years from now). The last time it was this
early was 1913 (so if you're 95 or older,
you are the only ones that were around
for that!).
The next time it will be a day earlier,
March 22, will be in the year 2285 (277
years from now). The last time it was on
March 22 was 1818. So, no one alive to-
day has or will ever see it any earlier
than this year!

As the storm passed
through the county, it cre-

conditions. According to
McCall, heavy rainfall oc-
curred near Moses Jack-

resulting in zero visibility.


After the dangerous
part of the storm was

requested an assessment
of the situation. Accord-

Seay spoke passionate-
ly about his admiration
for Lafayette County, the
community, and praised
Frank "Red" and Olive
Schulte for what they
have done to make R.O.
Ranch a reality. He also
stated that he loves this
part of the country as
well as the people and
considered it to be the
best place in America to
raise a family.
R. 0. Ranch is far su-
perior in quality to other
equestrian centers such
as the one in Ocala, Seay
said. It has much more to
offer than the others. For
example, you can ride
your horse and not wor-
ry about running into an-
other rider.
Seay strongly believes
R. 0. Ranch will become
a great asset to Lafayette
County in the years to
come and encouraged
everyone to continue
preserving this natural
heritage from the
Schultes.

That's not quite the

some effect, however.
"Early indications are
seeing an increase in

cording to Megan
Wetherington of the
Suwannee River Water
Management District.


Due to the increase in

moved the date the

Meanwhile, until the

Crabb Revival and Reflectsons live in concert


Crabb Revival, one of
the most exciting groups
in gospel music, and the

cert at the Lake City
Church of God on Satur-
day, March 22, at 7 p.m. A
$7 donation at the door is
requested and a free-will
offering will be received
during the concert. The
Lake City Church of God
is located off Highway 90
in Lake City.
The Crabb Family
toured the world reaching
millions of people with
their music. From their be-
ginning, the Crabb Family
achieved more number
one songs than any group
in gospel music. Songs
like "Through the Fire,"
"Please Forgive Me,"
"Trail of Tears," "I Sure
Miss You" and "The
Lamb, The Lion, and the
King," along with eight
other number one songs
and eight top 20 songs,
come from the pen of Ger-
ald Crabb that shaped the
Crabb Family and has
credited them the greatest
family group of all time.
With the retirement of
the Crabb Family in 2007,
Adam Crabb and Terah
Crabb Penhollow, along
with Micah Schweinsburg
and Zach Smith of the
Crabb Family formed
Crabb Revival. Jedidah
Richardson (Adam and
Terah's cousin) joins the
group playing acoustic
guitar and bass guitar.
The Reflectsons come
from the small town of
Trenton that brings a big
sound to the stage. With a
unique name like the Re-
flectsons, their main goal
is to always reflect the Son
wherever they play.
Over the 15 years the
Reflectsons have been on
-the road, they have been
bestowed awards, such as
"Mixed Group of the
Year," "Band of the Year,"
as well as individual
awards such as lead, alto,
bass, baritone vocalists of
the year and pianist, bass
guitarist and drummer of
the year.
The Reflectsons have re-
leased numerous projects
including their latest,
Prayer Changes Things.
Prayer Changes Things
features many original
songs by the group such as
the title cut and latest sin-
gle, "Prayer Changes
Things," "Losing Game,"
"There's Gonna Be A
Change" and many more.
The group is composed
of brothers Dale (lead) and
Tommy Thigpen (bass);
Dale's son, Glen Thigpen
(baritone and pianist);
Glen's wife, Leslie Thig-
pen (alto); and Tommy's
sons, Bryant Thigpen
(bass guitarist) and Tom-
my Lee (drummer) Thig-
pen.

Florida father memorializes



soldier son on Harley


Rowe's 12 ribbons including the Purple Heart, Bronze Star
and Meritorious Service medals are attached to the bike on
the oil reservoir.


THE 1977 Harley Davidson Sportster adorned with Sgt. Michael Rowe'S uniform as a memorial. Photos: Submitted


Rowe died from a tripped
mortar, which was hidden in a
drainage ditch, the day before
his 24th birthday. The gunner
traveling with Rowe saw what
appeared to be fishing line,
which was used to set off the
individual explosive device
(IED), laid across the road
approximately four seconds
before the blast.

By Tish Butts
Army Reserve Medical Command Public
Affairs

CLEARWATER, Fla. A father
adorned a 1977 Harley Davidson
Sportster with his son's uniform at the
Bike Builders Invitational in Clearwater,
Fla., as a memorial.
That son, Sgt. Michael Rowe of New
Port Richey and the 46th Engineer.
Battalion, Warrior Brigade in Fort Polk,
La. died in 2006 while on convoy in
Rutbah, Iraq. His father, David, attached
the desert combat uniform (DCU) to the


bike as a dedication to his memory.
"It was always my intention for Mike
to inherit it (the bike)," said David. "It
was, I guess, spiritual when I thought,
'Well, he can't inherit it, but I can make
a memorial of it.'"
Along with the fabric of the DCU, his
name and rank lay across the front
fender. The American flag sits on the
right side of the gas tank while his unit
patch and Sapper Tab appear on the left.
According to Rowe's parents, he is one
of the few in his military. occu.'d-tiol
specialty, Petroleum Supply Specialist
(92F), to complete the Sapper Leader
Course.
Rowe's 12 ribbons including the
Purple Heart, Bronze Star and
Meritorious Service medals are attached
to the bike on the oil reservoir. His
Combat Action Badge and Expert
Marksmanship Badge are.located above
and below his ribbons.
David said he decided to create the
memorial about six months after his son
died while supporting Operation Iraqi
Freedom.
Despite the clear-coating of the
uniform and molding the bike's fender to
fit the newly fashioned material, David
was able to maintain the integrity of the
uniform. "I didn't cut the
fabric only the thread,"
loddenberry he said through tear-
glazed eyes.
"A lot of love went into
that bike," Marcy, Rowe's
mother, echoed as she
stared into the distance.


Rowe deployed to Iraq in
November 2005 and died Rowe died
from a tripped mortar, which
was hidden in a drainage
ditch, the following year on March 28 -
the day before his 24th birthday.
The gunner traveling with Rowe saw
what appeared to be fishing line, which
was used td set off the individual
explosive device (IED), laid across the
road approximately four seconds before
the blast
His team received a briefing about that
particular IED for the first time that
morning, and Rowe was the only
passenger who sustained fatal injuries,
Marcy said.
The soldier's untimely death left
Rebecca, his wife of two years, without a
husband and his daughter Nevaeh, whom
he had never met, without a father.
Rebecca was six months pregnant at the
time.
David said that although Nevaeh
(Heaven spelled backward), 18 months,
never saw her father on the Harley, she
jumps on the bike for a ride each time
she sees it.
"She loves to sit on the bike with it
running and say, 'Vroom, vroom,'" said
Marcy. "When I look at her, I sometimes
see him looking back at me."
Rowe's daughter is a happy free spirit
who inherited his adventurous and caring
nature.
"He was always cheerful and
optimistic," said Marcy. "When he was
in Iraq, and he would see someone
feeling down, he would do whatever he


the day before his 24th birthday.


could to cheer them up. They would say,
'Sarg., the munchkin bit me again.'"
Rowe's height of five feet five inches
earned him the nickname "Munchkin"
among his fellow soldiers.
According to his mom, the young
sergeant not only pushed his fellow
soldiers to excellence in any situation, he
did everything "full throttle" in his own
life.
Ironically, Full Throttle magazine
featured Rowe's story and the bike
baring his name and uniform in the
January 2008 issue.
Writer of the article, the "Rev'rand"
Jim Goodrich, invited David and Marcy
to the Bike Builders Invitational after
having seen the motorcycle at New Port
Richey Bikefest 2007. The invitational is
a display of 42 motorcycles from all over
Rowe's home state of Florida.
"Just looking at the bike was
inspirational," said Goodrich.
The Harley has a standing invitation to
any bike show organized by Goodrich
since David uses the bike to keep his
son's memory alive.
"You can't ask for a better person than
that," said Goodrich.
Although the,motorcycle has won
"Judge's Choice" along with other
trophies, David does not show the bike
for competition, but to make people
aware of how the war is affecting the
families of soldiers and to remind
Americans that "freedom isn't free."


"She loves to sit on the bike with it running and say, 'Vroom, vroom,'" said Marcy. "When I
look at her, I sometimes see him looking back at me."
Rowe's daughter is a happy free spirit who inherited his adventurous and caring nature.

rHealth to


Fun a factor for children's de


Keeping up with a kid is no easy feat. Most parents know that a
child is a bundle of energy with an attention span that lasts mere
minutes if you're lucky! So when it comes to teaching children
the lessons of being an independent person such as personal
grooming habits there are distinct challenges. But with a little
patience and a dash of fun, no task is insurmountable.
More Cavities in Young Kids Means Better Brushing Needed

There is growing evidence that children's dental health is an area
on which most families need to focus more attention. Dentists say
they are treating more and more young patients who have cavities
in their primary teeth. A new Center for Disease Control and
Prevention study reports that almost a third of all kids between 2
and 5 have cavities in their baby teeth. Experts attribute the trend
to several factors, including an upsurge in sugared snacks, juice
and soda consumption, the rising use of bottled, non-fluoridated
water, and the fact that children simply don't spend enough time
brushing teeth.

Many people are under the assumption that oral hygiene is not
something that really needs to be worried about in young kids.
After all, baby teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth will
grow in their place. But this is far from the case. The American
Dental Association (ADA) says that cavities in baby teeth can
cause a number of problems, including tooth loss, ear and speech
problems, crooked permanent teeth, severe pain, poor self-image,
and tooth decay. That's why the ADA recommends starting
children's dental care when they are still babies. A dentist's visit
should occur by age 1. Brushing should begin at age 2 and be
supervised until a child is 6 or 7.

Beating Brushing Blues

The recommended brushing time to get teeth clean is a minute
for the top arch of teeth and a minute for the bottom. So how does
a parent get their child to cooperate? Make it fun, says Dr. Fresh,
the maker of the FireFly, a bright and sparkly children's
toothbrush that lights up and flashes.
The FireFly toothbrush was developed when Dr. Fresh (yes, he
is a real person) could not get his young daughter to brush for long
enough. To inspire "psychological compliance," he basically took
the LCD light out of a pair of fancy sneakers and put it in the
bottom of a regular toothbrush. With more research and
development, he created the FireFly, which uses the same
"blinking technology" in a durable, ergonomically-designed
toothbrush for kids.
"Most of us underestimate how long a minute really is," says Dr.
Fresh. And a minute can seem interminable for an active child
looking to move on to his or her next activity.

The FireFly, which blinks for 60 seconds, is a way to instill the
one-minute each arch brushing routine. Have children press the

Buying a
In the market for a new
car but don't know where to
start? Don't worry, your
friends from the Federal
Trade Commission and the
Federal Citizen Information
Center can help. They've put
together a handy package of
publications with all the ins
and outs of getting a good
deal on your new ride.
First, calculate how much
car you can afford. If you're
financing or leasing your
new vehicle, use the
Monthly Spending Plan to
figure out an affordable
payment. Next, think about
what type of car you would
like. Do you want a coupe,
sedan, truck, or SUV? Or
what about a hybrid? Should
it be manual or automatic?
As you're researching the
different makes and models,
also consider any options
that you might want such as
trim, alloy wheels, or a
moonroof.
After you've decided on
your dream ride, shop
around or new car prices and
features using auto buying
guides, the Internet, and
other sources. Negotiate
with the dealer about
lowering their profit margin,
which is usually 10 to 20
percent of the MSRP. Once
you're at the dealership, it's
important that you stay
within the price range you
can afford and that you
understand the value and
cost of optional products
such as an extended service
contract.
If you plan on financing
your new car, you'll want to
check your credit report
first. Errors or inaccurate
information may affect the
finance rate you're able to
obtain. Next, compare
annual percentage rates
(APRs) and financing terms
from multiple finance
sources such as a bank,
finance company, credit
union, or car dealer. Be
aware that if you choose to
finance your car, the lender
keeps the vehicle's title until
you've paid the contract in
full. And remember to read
the contract carefully. Once
you sign, you're obligated to
the terms.
Make buying your new
car a breeze by sending for
the New Ride package.
There are three easy ways to


"e


new ride
get your package of
publications:
Send your name, address,
and a check or money order
for $2 to New Ride, Pueblo,
CO 81009.
Visit
www.pueblo.gsa.gov/media-
promo.htm to place your
order online or to read or
print these and hundreds of
other Federal publications
for free.
Call toll-free 888-8
PUEBLO. That's 888-878-
3256, weekdays 8 a.m. to 8
p.m. Eastern Time, and ask
for the New Ride package.
Have your credit card handy.
Get even more
information and take
advantage of online
government services
resources at www.USA.gov
and
www.GobiernoUSA.gov--
your official English and
Spanish web portals to the
Federal government.

How to mintai1
your tUrs
Looking for ways to
"go green" without
spending a lot of
money? Here's a tip-
check your tire
pressure each month.
Maintaining proper
inflation can increase
your gas mileage and
save you money at the
pump, while also
reducing carbon
emissions. Get started
with the step-by-step
checklist in How to
Maintain Your Tires.
