Emergency Management taps into "Code Red"


New system will allow for quicker
alerts when disasters loom


IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
The Lafayette County Pub-
lic Safety Department's ability
to quickly inform the public of
emergencies during or be-
fore one occurs became a lit-


tie easier with the addition of
a new method of communica-
tion.
Donnie Land, Lafayette
County Public Safety Director,
is excited about the "Code
Red" system, which is far
more efficient than going
door-to-door in affected areas.


"The CodeRED system
gives county officials the abil-
ity to deliver pre-recorded
emergency telephone notifica-
tion/information messages to
targeted areas or the entire
county at a rate of up to 60,000
calls per hour," Land said.
The communication system
was created by ECN, based in
Ormond Beach. According to
ECN, the program has been
very successful throughout


the state of Florida, saving
both lives and time during
emergencies such as fires,
floods, hurricanes, tornadoes,
escaped prisoners, bomb
threats, utility outrages and
searching for and rescuing


missing children.
Land encourages everyone
in the county to add their
name to the list. The database
is secure and is only used for

Wild Beast Feast 2008 is almost here. If you
have not purchased a ticket yet, there are
still some available. The annual fundraising
event, sponsored each
year by Mayo Rotary, will
be held at Veterans Memorial Park of Mayo
this Friday, March 21, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The park is located across from Lafayette
State Bank at the intersection of SR 27 and CR
300.
Rotary Club of Mayo members are excited
about this year's event and hope the entire
community will participate and make it even
better than last year's. I U
Tickets for adults are $20 each and children

ages 12 and under eat free, according to Lance Braswell, presi-
dent of Rotary Club of Mayo. All proceeds from ticket sales will
be used to fund youth scholarships.
This is the first year the community event will be held at the
town park. Sheriff Carson McCall, who is in charge of gathering
and cooking the food, recently stated the location was changed
in order to make it more convenient, not only for those prepar-
ing the event, but also for the public and
passersby. Last year, Wild Beast Feast was
held at Wyatt O'Steen's Arena on CR 353.
Braswell, along with other members of the
club, as well as the volunteers, cordially in-
vite everyone to bring the entire family for an
evening filled with fellowship, great enter-
tainment, delicious food and prizes.
Tickets for the event can be purchased from
any Mayo Rotary member or by calling
ACT tBraswell at 386-294-1399, McCall at 386-294-
1222, or Steve Land at 386-294-1600.

Is $4

gasoline


on the

horizon?
IRA MIKELL
Free Press Reporter
mayofreepressl@alltel.net
Gasoline prices have been
rising steadily toward the
$4 mark this year and show
no signs of slowing. The
sharp increase at the pump
is causing pain for con-
surpers who are trying to
pay their bills, put food on
the table, and have enough
money left over to spend
time with their families on
other things such as recre-
ation.
The price of oil remains
above $100 per barrel,
reaching a high of $111.
That's compared to 90 cents
a barrel in 1939.
Randy Bly, spokesperson
for the American Automo-
bile Association, said it is
highly probable we could
be paying dose to $4 per
gallon of gasoline in the
near future.
"We will likely see prices
this spring anywhere from
$3.45 to $3.75 per gallon
(self-serve regular unlead-
ed) barring unforeseen cir-
cumstances," Bly said in a
recent email interview.
Already, in the last few
weeks, several area gas sta-
tions have begun to charge
just over $4 per gallon for
diesel. The highest price in

~I riL.A fL c I 3L I**f* rn 7.- *.*. I -


"He is not here; He has
risen!" (John 24:6) As be-
lievers in Jesus Christ, this
week we celebrate the
empty tomb, understand-
ing that the price for our
sin was His death. It is re-
markable that something
so empty can represent
such fullness.
The Bible tells us in
John 10:10 that Jesus said:
"I have come that they
may have life, and have it
to the full." I believe that
Jesus is conveying to us
the necessity of being
filled by the overwhelm-
ing love and forgiveness
that His death makes pos-
sible, because living in
sin, doing only what is
pleasing to our self, leaves
us empty, dry, searching.
As a culture, America is
empty to the point of ex-
cess. We can't eat enough,
diet enough,. drink
enough, do enough
drugs, spend enough,
work enough, sleep
enough, take enough
medicine, all excess is
rooted in emptiness,
searching to be filled.
And it is never enough.
What is more, we have
learned to stay busy from
morning till night to keep
from dealing with our
erhiptiness, but it is obvi-
ous how it deals with us!
Proverbs 27:7 says, "He
who is full loathes honey,
but to the hungry, even

what is bitter tastes
sweet." How true! When
we allow God to fill us
withTHis love and forgive-
ness on a daily basis, no
matter what tempting
treat Satan dangles in
front of us, we are much
more able to resist, like
turning down a candy bar
after a big steak dinner,
it's not that hard. But if
we are empty and looking
in all the wrong places to
be filled, like a starving
man, even garbage will
start looking good!
This emptiness is dam-
aging to the relationships
in our life, because we
constantly need other
people to make us feel
valuable. Emotionally, we
are like beggars holding
out our cup for the people
in our lives to make daily
deposits that will help to
fill us. The problem is
that even those who love
us most, will at some
point disappoint us and
let us down, and if our
value and worth is tied to
their opinion and their ac-
tions toward us, we will
be in trouble. The fullness
that Christ brings into our
life cannot be taken away
from us, no matter what
circumstances we are in
or problems that arise. If
we bring our cup. before
Him, it will be filled to
overflowing! We have
worth in Christ that is not

measured by what we
own, who we know, what
we look like, or what we
accomplish. We can rest
and be full, knowing that
because the tomb is emp-
ty, our hearts can be full.
All we have to do is ask,
because on that first East-
er morning, nothing mat-
tered more!

Happy Easter! Angie

Letter to


the Editor

Katlin Rae Boswell, the
daughter, of Johnathan
Boswell. and Jamied
Willoughby, was born on
March 3, 2008 at 5:31 a.m.
CST in the Woman's Hospi-
tal in Baton Rouge, LA. Lit-
tle Katlin was born after
only 25 weeks of concep-
tion (which equates to be-
ing at least 2 months pre-
mature at birth). Katlin is
fighting for her life right
now!
She needs our prayer and
support! Katlin is suffering
from jaundice, has undevel-
oped lungs, and currently
underwent two emergency
surgeries on her bowels (re-
sulting in a baby colosto-
my) and two blood transfu-
sion (resulting in four pints
of blood). Both parents are
young (Jamie is 21 and
Johnathan is 19) and unin-
sured. The medical treat-
ment is extremely costly
and a medical fund is being
established for our little
Miss Katlin (with the goal
of $100,000 to help with the
cost).
Please pray for Katlin,
and spread the word so that
we may start a prayer chain
for her. Katlin needs our
prayer and support. Please
show your support and
compassion for this little
girl. Invite your friends and
family. Thank you in ad-
vance for your compassion
as it is truly appreciated
from this child's family and
the friends of the family.

School benefits for reserves, guard


N,'

E,.~


By Carlton Black,
Lafayette County
Veterans Service officer

The American
Legion Online
Update Story

Some reserve and Na-
tional Guard troops who
serve on active duty will
see significant increases
in their educational ben-
efits, thanks to improve-
ments resulting from '
considerable American
Legion efforts. Under
new provisions an-
nounced by the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs,
service members who ac-
cumulate three years of
active duty regardless
of breaks in active duty
service may be eligible
for the maximum pay-
ment under the Reserve
Education Assistance
Program, Previously,
members of the reserve
components had to serve
two continuous years on
active duty to receive the
highest payment; yet
that is only 80 percent of
the full Montgomery GI
Bill rate. The new eligi-
bility rules are retroac-
tive to Oct. 1, 2007.
The American Legion's


National Economic
Commission also suc-
cessfully lobbied Con-
gress to rewrite the law
so that more than
400,000 reserve and Na-
tional Guard combat
veterans could use their
earned educational ben-
efits after service to our
country is completed.
The current Reserve Ed-
ucation Assistance Pro-
gram (REAP) provides a
top benefit payment of
$880.80 per month. The
new law, part of the Na-
tional Defense Autho-
rization Act, also ex-
pands the period of eli-
gibility for certain
Guard and reserve mem-
bers who complete their
service obligation before
separating from the se-
lected reserve, members
meeting these criteria
may be eligible to use
REAP benefits for 10
years after their dis-
charges, or completion
of their service con-
tracts. Benefits typically
end upon separation for
members who do not
complete their obligated
,service.
Additionally, some
REAP-eligible National
Guard and reserve mem-
bers may now make an
extra contribution to the
Department of Defense
to increase their monthly
benefit rates. Service
members get an extra $5
per month for each $20
contributed. With the
maximum $600 contribu-
tion, this option can add
up to $5,400 for a mem-
ber's total 36 month ed-
ucation benefit package.

ABC (A Business-Community) School

Program

Request for Proposal

Lafayette School District
March 14, 2008
In compliance with Section 1013.721 of the Florida Statutes, the Lafayette
School District is offering businesses in Lafayette County the opportunity to
partner with the district to provide an ABC (A Business-Community) public
school which offers instruction to students in kindergarten through third
grade.

To accomplish this task, businesses with extra space may apply to the district to
operate a kindergarten through third grade school on its premises for children of its
employees and other children as space provides. The District benefits from this program
by reducing school and classroom overcrowding and offsetting the high cost of
constructing educational facilities or fixing deteriorating facilities. Within the ABC
school program, children also have more time with their parent because they commute
together to school and work. Parents often volunteer in the classroom because of their
close proximity to the school. The participating business benefits by providing the ABC
School as an incentive for its employees. Studies show increased worker productivity
and decreased absenteeism and turnover rates where an ABC School is in place.

If you are interested in finding out more about this program or how to apply to become
an ABC School please contact Betina Hurst, Director of Assessment, Curriculum &
Technology, Lafayette School District, 160 NE Hornet Dr., Mayo, Fla. 32066 or by
phone at 294-4137 no later than May 1, 2008. Once an application is submitted the
ABC Evaluation Committee, composed of business & school leaders, will evaluate the
feasibility of each proposal and make recommendations to the school board.

non-degree programs
lasting less than two
years, may also be eligi-
ble to receive accelerated
payments.
During fiscal 2007,
more than 60,000 Na-
tional Guardsmen and
reservists were paid un-
der REAP, more than
41,000 were paid under
the Montgomery GI Bill
program for the Selected
Reserves, and about
344,000 participants
were paid under the
Montgomery GI Bill for
active-duty members.
The newly implemented
benefits fall in line with
congressional efforts to
revitalize the GI Bill.
The Senate, with sub-
stantial assistance from
The American Legion,
has re-introduced a new
S.22; the "Post-9 /11 Vet-
erans Educational Assis-
tance Act." This bill
seeks to significantly ex-
pand educational bene-
fits for veterans who
have served on active
duty after 9/11. A com-
panion bill in the House
is due to be introduced .
shortly.
Under the new provi-
sions of S.22, veterans
could earn up to 36
months of educational
benefits that would
align tuition benefits to
the highest cost of in-
state tuition and fees per
state, monthly housing
stipends, an annual
stipend to cover books,
supplies, equipment and
other educational costs.


Furthermore, the new S.
22, will create the "Yel-
low Ribbon G.I. Educa-
tion Enhancement Pro-
gram," which schools
can voluntarily join to
provide scholarships
and grants for veterans,
to compensate for the
difference between their
normal education costs
and what the G.I. Bill
can provide. These pro-
posed benefits echo the
original G.I. Bill passed
in 1944, which
bankrolled an entire
generation of World War
II veterans and democra-
tized higher education.

Frank Pond who spent
his early years in Lafayette
.County became a Marine
Corps aviator. I do not have
enough information on
Frank to go into an in-
depth summary but I am
certain that his career after
the military was in the legal
S profession where he served
:' as judge in south Florida.
S many will remember Frank
M ,:and his sister, whose name
O.A. Winburn, Jr. I can't recall at this time, as
ScrubHammock@aol.com the nephew and niece of


Miss Lucille Hart.
Before hostilities began in
Korea, I was in that pro-
gram at the UF and another
young man from Lafayette
County who entered the
program before me was one
of the Platoon leaders. That
would be Harold L. Smith
who later became a casualty
in Korea. I believe his older
brother, Hugh Madison
Smith, Jr. preceded him and
became a career military
man. I believe High Smith
(Col. USAR Ret.) presently
resides in Lafayette County
on his farm.


4.0 .. 4eZami4 oj /td i-a When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me But then I fully realized,
'And I'm not there to see, That this could never be,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes For emptiness and memories,
All filled with tears for me; Would take the place of me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today, But when I'walked through Heaven's gates,
While thinking of the many things, I felt so much at home.
We didn't get to say When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His Great golden throne,
I know how much you love me,
As much I love you, He said, This is eternity,-
And each time that you think of me, And all I have promised you.
I know you will miss me too; Today your life on earth is part,
But when tomorrow starts without me, But here life starts anew.'
Please try to understand 'I promised no tomorrow,
That an angel came and called my name, But today will always last,
And took me by the hand, And since each day's the same way
And said my place was ready, There's no longing for the past.'
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind 'But you have been so faithful,
All those I dearly love. So trusting and so true.


But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The goods ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
All the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you,
And maybe see you smile.


Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.
'But you have been forgiven
And now at last you are free
So won't you come and take my
hand,
And share my life with me


So when tomorrow starts
without me,
Don't think we are far
apart,
For every time you
think of me,
I'M RIGHT THERE,
IN YOUR HEART.

I became acquainted with
Hugh, the oldest son of
Madison L. Smith back in
the 1980s when we were
both residents of
Gainesville. I had known of
him before then but had not
met him personally until I
became a member of the
Gainesville Shrine Club of
which he was also a mem-
ber. Since that time I have
come to the realization that
he takes a very active and
energetic part in those Ma-
sonic organizations to
which he belongs. About
that time, the Gainesville
Shrine Club had lost it's
charter due to some techni-
cality concerning ownership
of some property. Many of
us began attending the Tri-
County Shrine Club in Fan-
ning Springs until the time
finally came when a new
charter for the Gainesville
Shriners was in order. Note-
worthy or not, two
Lafayette County natives
are charter members of the
new Gainesville Shrine
Club, having signed the
new charter. Those two
names are myself and Hugh
Smith.
Another youngster from
this county that moved
away before graduation
went on to be in the first
class at the United States Air
Force Academy in Col-
orado. That would be Joe
Morgan, Jr., who rose to the
rank of Colonel before re-
tirement. At one time for a
brief period, I had served in
the same AF Unit as his dad-
dy, Lt. Col. Joe Morgan, Sr.
Another young man, Char-
lie Dale Price who was in
my graduating class, be-
came an officer in the USAF
after serving a brief time as
an enlisted man. I have a
dim recollection that early
in 1951 the war in Korea
was not going well and pla-
toon leaders were in short
supply. It was said that the
average life of a platoon
leader at that time in the Ko-
rean "police action" was
about 15 minutes. An ap-
peal went out to qualified


young men in the other
branches of the military to
apply for officers training
school where they would
become much needed re-
placements. Dale Price was
one of those and I believe
after a distinguished career
in the USAF, he retired with
the rank of Major.
Major Prepton Phillips
was in the graduating class
a year ahead of me and re-
tired from the military and
now lives in Panama City
after enjoying the climate
and other amenities that
Alaska has to offer, where
he lived for many years af-
ter retirement.
I have singled out one
young many to further
comment on concerning his
military career because it
seems to me to be the
source of inspiration and
encouragement for other
youngsters who may fol-
low.
I believe the following ac-
count will be interesting to
most and that some young
men and women may see it
as encouragement when
faced with some of those
seemingly formidable ob-
stacles that appear as an im-
pediment to attaining their
sought after goals.
I in no way intend to min-
imize the accomplishments
and heroic deeds of those
other officers and enlisted
men from Lafayette County
who have served and the
many who have died while
serving their country in
time of great need.
Having previously men-
tioned Frank, Mr. Buck Fol-
som's oldest son, I am re-
minded of many things that
were related to me by Frank
concerning Frank's son,
Ben. This young man fol-
lowed the path that was
open at that time to other
young men from this coun-
ty, working on the farm,
loading watermelons, crop-
ping tobacco, going to
Canada to work in the to-
bacco and setting pine
seedlings for Buckeye.
Ben attended NFJC in


Madison and after gradua-
tion had enlisted in the
Navy as an aviation cadet.
Ben's father, Frank whom I
have just mentioned, was a
farmer and operated a fill-
ing station in Mayo. Earlier,
Frank had sort of taken an
interest in me as I struggled
along as a young farmer
and on occasion would pro-
vide me with a piece of
equipment that would
make my effort a little easi-
er and more effective. Frank
would often take the time
to chat with me a bit and
one day he had something
important to tell me and he
was bubbling over about it
and it concerned Ben.
This was at the filling sta-
tion in Mayo and I always
traded there. Ben had grad-
uated from NFJC and had
taken the test to become a
Naval Aviation Cadet
where he hoped to become
a pilot. Frank related to me
that the personnel at the re-
cruiting station had advised
Ben when he told them that
he wanted to enlist and be-
come a pilot that he could-
n't possibly pass the test be-
cause he only had an AA
degree and. that much more
background in math was
required. Apparently Ben
had held out that he could
pass the test if allowed to
take it and I expect that he
made that a prerequisite to
his enlisting in the Navy.
Anyway, Ben was allowed
to go forward with the test
and he had passed it with
flying colors according to
Frank. Interestingly
enough, according to
Frank, the Navy testing
personnel had inquired of
Ben, to what he attributed
his exceptional high level of
skill in mathematics. I be-
lieve Frank's words were:
(Ben told them,) "I went to
school in Mayo, and had a
good math teacher named
Mr. Madison Smith." I ex-
pect there are several others
out there who could relate
to Mr. Smith's unique qual-
ifications and teaching abil-
ity in the subject.......

Sturgeon returning

to Suwannee River
The Gulf sturgeon are beginning their annual migra-
tion back into the Suwannee River, and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds
boaters to slow down and be aware these fish are jump-
ing.
Nine people were injured in accidental collisions
with jumping sturgeon during 2007. A fatal incident
occurred after a sturgeon jumped in front of a boat. The
boat operator swerved abruptly to avoid a collision,
causing two people to be ejected into the water, with
one of the men drowning.
"We certainly don't want a repeat of last year," said
Maj. Lee Beach, regional law enforcement commander
for FWC's North Central Region, based in Lake City.
"Just one person getting hurt is too many. We want
people to be aware that the sturgeon are returning, and
the risk of injury to boaters does exist."
In 2006, FWC officials began working on a public
awareness campaign to alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeon.
"We have posted signs at each boat ramp along the
Suwannee, explaining the risk of impacts with these
fish," Beach said. "We will be checking those boat
ramps this month to ensure all the signs are still in
place."
What's the best course of action for avoiding a colli-
sion?
"We recommend boaters reduce their speed to reduce
the risk of impact and to give people more time to react
if they do encounter a jumping sturgeon," Beach said.
"The FWC also recommends that all boaters wear their
life jackets."
The Suwannee River appears to support the largest
viable population of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate
the annual population at 6,500 to 7,500 fish, each aver-
aging approximately 40 pounds. Adult fish spend eight
to nine months each year in the river spawning and
three to four of the coolest months in Gulf waters. Stur-
geon tend to congregate in deeper and cooler waters
with moderate currents and sand and rocky bottoms.
Biologists are unsure why sturgeon jump.
"Scientists are still attempting to figure that out," said
Dr. Jeffrey Wilcox, FWC Fish Taxa coordinator. "The
latest theories include that the fish jump to communi-
cate, or it may be a dominance display. No rules require
all jumps to mean the same thing.
"I have seen these collisions referred to as 'attacks.'
However, these fish are in no way 'attacking' when
they jump. They are simply doing what they have been
doing for millions of years ... jumping. They aren't tar-
geting the boaters," Wilcox said.
However, Gulf sturgeon can get quite big, exceeding
7 feet and 170 pounds.
"They have five rows of rock-hard 'scutes' along their
sides, back and belly. When sturgeon and boaters col-
lide, the results can be devastating," Wilcox said.
Sturgeon are a protected species and may not be har-
vested.
"Sturgeon are protected by state and federal law, just
like bald' eagles, panthers and sea turtles," Beach said.
To report sturgeon collisions, call 1-888-404-FWCC
(3922).


What to do if your well is flooded


If your drinking water
well has been impacted by
flood waters, or if you no-
tice any change in the ap-
pearance or taste of your
water, or even if you are
unsure about the impact of
flooding on your well wa-
ter, either use bottled water,
or boil or disinfect all the
water you use for drinking,
making beverages, cook-
ing, brushing your teeth,
washing dishes, and wash-
ing areas of the skin that
have been cut or injured.
How to Boil or Disinfect
Common unscented
household bleach (4 to 6%
active ingredients) can be
used effectively as a chlo-
rine disinfectant. Either
bring water to a rolling boil
for one minute and let it
cool; OR disinfect it by
adding 8 drops (about 1/8
teaspoon) of unscented
household bleach per gal-
lon of water, and then let it
stand for 30 minutes, re-
peating the procedure if it
is still cloudy.
Is my water safe to
drink after the flooding
subsides?
Not necessarily- If your
well has been flooded, you
should first contact the lo-
cal County Health Depart-
ment for information on
how to sample your well
water and where to bring
the sample for. bacteriologi-
cal testing. If the test re-
veals bacteria, the well and
water system need to be
disinfected.
How do I disinfect my well?
It is important to disin-
fect both the well and
plumbing with unscented
household chlorine bleach
to ensure that all infectious
agents are destroyed. If you
have water treatment de-
vices, remove all mem-
branes, cartridges, and fil-
-ters and replace them after
the chlorination process is
completed. The amount of
chlorine determines the
length of time you allow
the bleach to remain in

your system.
The Department of
Health recommends the
following steps to disinfect
a contaminated well:
If the water is discol-
ored before adding the
bleach, run the water until
it is clear for up to 10 min-
utes.
Turn off and then drain
your hot water heater-
bleach is not effective in
water above 105 degrees.
Remove and replace
charcoal filters after the
disinfecting process is
completed.
To avoid adding conta-
mination to the well dur-
ing disinfection, first clean
the work area around the
top of the well. Then re-
move grease and mineral
deposits from accessible
parts of the well head and
flush the outside surfaces
with 1/2 cup of unscented
household chlorine bleach
in 5 gallons of water.
Turn off the pump. Re-
move the cap or the well
plug on the rubber seal.
There are many types of
well caps and plugs. If you
have questions, you
should contact a licensed
well driller. If you have a


submersible pump, you
may also want to contact a
licensed well driller for ad-
vice on disinfection proce-
dures.
Consult the bleach chart
and pour the recommend-
ed amount of unscented
bleach (4 to 6%) solution
into the well. Try to coat
the sides of the casing as
you pour. If you get bleach
on the pump or wiring,
flush it thoroughly with
fresh water to prevent later
corrosion.
Re-cap or plug the well
opening and wait 30 min-
utes.
Turn on and, if needed,
re-prime the pump. Open
all of the faucets on the sys-
tem one at a time. Allow
the water to run until there
is a noticeable smell of
bleach. You may also want
to flush the toilets. If you
have outside faucets, you
may want to direct the wa-
ter away from sensitive
plants. If you cannot detect
a bleach odor, repeat the
disinfecting process.
Turn off all of the faucets
and allow the bleach to re-
main in the system for at
least eight hours.
Backwash water soften-


ers, sand filters, and iron
removal filters with bleach
water.
Again, open all the
faucets' and run the water
until there is no bleach
smell for up to 15 minutes.

Is it safe now?
After disinfecting your
well, the water needs to be
tested to verify that it is
safe to drink. Although un-
scented household bleach
is effective against mi-
croorganisms, it will not re-
move chemical contamina-
tion that may have gotten
into your well. Contact
your county health depart-
ment for sampling instruc-
tions to get your water test-
ed.

Is Foster Care failing America's most helpless children?


May is National Foster
Care Month and accord-
ing to government statis-
tics, there are over half a
million children in Ameri-
ca's foster care system to-
day. For perspective,
that's more than the popu-
lation of pre-Hurricane
Katrina New Orleans. Be-
yond the numbers, each
child bears a personal sto-
ry that starts with heart-
break and almost always
ends with it, too. Is the
system failing America's
foster children?
"Yes," answers foster
child advocate Margaret
luculano, whose tragic
trip through the system is
documented in the new
book "My God Box."

pays them. The system
needs a major overhaul."
Another issue of partic-
ular concern to luculano
is when foster children
'age out' of the system
once they turn 18-years-
old or complete high
school. Are vulnerable
youths who have bounced


from home to home and
school to school able han-
dle life on their own?
According to luculano,
despite having access to
free college, many 'aged
out' adults are not pre-
pared for higher educa-
tion since they did not
grow up in a stable learn-
ing environment. "Cou-
ple that with the fact that
only 38% of foster care
kids are employed 12 to
18 months after their dis-
charge from the system,
and it's sadly obvious
why there's an upward
trend of homelessness
among those who have
aged out."
. As survivor of the sys-
tem, Margaret has moved
on to own two businesses
and serve as the President
and CEO of a multi-mil-
lion dollar Microsoft con-
sulting company. She is
now focused on the mis-
sion of shedding light on
the secret lives of foster
children and doing what
she can to help and moti-
vate, "I was inspired by
faith and overcame the
victim mentality so it's
my responsibility to help
other foster children tri-


umph as well."
luculano explains her
long-term goal is to open a
group home for 'aged out'
foster care kids, "I want it
to serve as a transition
From a system life to a
self-sufficient life. The
plan is to offer a happy
environment that encour-
ages bonding with others,
not treatment like a sec-
ond class citizen." In the
meantime, proceeds from
her book, "My God Box,"
will go to many different
not for profits dedicated
to children.
For luculano, even the
slightest failures in the
foster care system are un-
acceptable, "These chil-
dren are already at risk.
Leaving them unprepared
for adulthood is a traves-
ty." It's not realistic to
have everyone write a
book about their foster
care experience or open a
group home for 'aged out'
adults, but luculano
points out, "You can do
something. Get involved
with a local charity. It's
up to all of us to try and
change the failures of the
foster care system this
month and beyond."

Evan Barrington collected two hits
and the Lafayette junior varsity base-
ball team scored eight times in the
second inning to rout the junior Tren-
ton Tigers 14-2 last Thursday in base-
ball action. The win evened the JV
team's overall record to 3-3 on the
season. Brook Lamineck, and Chris
Allen had safeties in the win. Each
drove in a run for the Hornets.
The 14-run barrage lacked any of-
fensive prowness for the Hornets. In
fact, they collected but four hits in the
game with the majority of their scor-
ing coming in the first. two innings.


Starter Wayne Atwell picked up the
win in working the first four innings.
Austin Henderson came on to hurl
the fifth inning. Atwell allowed two
runs on two hits for Trenton. Atwell
struck out eight batters and walked
but two. He did hit one Trenton bat-
ter. Henderson surrendered two hits
in the fifth but did not allow a runner
to come home to score. Both hits
came with two outs in the inning.
Trenton took a 2-0 lead in the first
inning. The inning unfolded with
shortstop Lamineck dropping a pop
up in the infield off the bat of Cody

The Taylor County Bull-
dogs scored 10 runs in the
final two innings in post-
ing a 16-7 win over host
Lafayette last week in high
school baseball. The visit-
ing Bulldogs plated four
runs in the sixth inning
and pushed home six in
the seventh. The two teams
were tied at 6-6 when Tay-
lor County broke the game
open in the last two
frames.
Lafayette had scored five
times in their half of the
fifth inning to tie the game
at 6-6. The Hornets could
only collect one other run
and that came in the sixth
inning.
Cody Singletary and Ser-
gio Perez collected two hits
for the Hornets. In the Hor-
nets fifth inning 10 Hornet
batters went to the plate
collecting five consecutive
hits against Miller, who
started for Taylor County.
Matt Milton opened the in-
ning with a lead off walk
and he was followed by the
five Hornet hits. John An-
derson had a two-run dou-
ble in the inning with Ja-
mal Reid, Perez, Singletary
and Bubba Fillyaw picking
up runs batted in.
Taylor County batted
around in scoring four
times in their half of the
sixth inning and sent 10
batters to the plate in their
six run seventh. Allbritton
had a three-run home run
in the Bulldogs sixth in-
ning off Ragan Knight who
took the loss for Lafayette.
The Bulldogs grabbed a
3-0 lead scoring three times
in the second inning.
Lafayette plated a single
run in the bottom of the
third but Taylor County
came back with three in the
fifth inning for a 6-1 mar-
-gin. The five'run fifth for
the Hornets tied the game
at 6-6.
Knight went the full sev-
en innings for Lafayette al-
lowing 16 runs on 13 h its.
He struck out four and hit
three batters. Miller se-
cured the win for the Bull-
dogs working five innings.
Allbritton came on to pitch
the sixth and seventh in-
nings for Taylor.

Senior right-hander Chad
Hempstead scattered four Tren-
ton base hits as the Lafayette
Hornets posted a 4-3 win over a
very good Trenton Tiger team
last Friday night. In going the
distance for the Hornets, Hemp-
stead struck out 10 batters while
issuing but one walk in his best
outing of the 2008 season. He
fanned four of the last six batters
he faced mixing up his pitches
in the final two frames.

The only inning he struggled
in was the fourth when the
Tigers pushed home all three of
their runs to take a 3-0 lead. Two
of the three runs scored by Tren-
ton were unearned with Hemp-
stead's error allowing both runs
to score. The Hornets hurler al-
lowed a lead off single to Karson

If you are like me you are ready for some warmer
weather and a chance to get in the great outdoors and
enjoy the fresh air. I love the spring, summer and fall
months. I definitely am not a cold weather person.
When it gets below 60 I get cold.
With the coming of the warmer weather that means
baseball time professional baseball. I love the game
and take in a few during the course of a season. Re-
cently I got to travel down to Sarasota and take in a
couple of spring training games. I watched as the
Cincinnati Reds won over the New York Yankees arnd
the next day the Reds dropped a game, to Pittsburgh.
But it was a very enjoyable outing for me.
Different people relax in different ways. Some find
fishing and hunting an escape from the stress of life
and can relax around that sort of atmosphere and why
not. Both are very relaxing. But for me, just to take in a
high school baseball game is very relaxing. I enjoy
watching the Lady Hornets softball team as well as the
Hornet baseball team. I just enjoy being around the
kids and being just a little part of their lives.
On the other side, the Lafayette High School Basket-
ball Banquet will held April 14. All the basketball teams
and players will be honored and deservingly so. Girls
basketball coach, Jimmy Blankenship, and his team had
a fantastic season coming within one game of a state
championship. The Lady Hornets will be a strong team
next season and they hope for a return to Lakeland.in
order "to take care of some business."
I thought coach Daryl Fletcher did a great job with
the boys program in his first year at the helm. The Hor-
nets lost quite a bit of talent but have some good JV
players coming up next season.
This is my time of year when it comes to basketball. I
am a big Kentucky fan (don't hold that against me).
You can't be from Kentucky and not be a Wildcat fan.
But this time of year we had the SEC Tournament and

whitewash

11-0

by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
It was not, repeat, was not a good day for the
Lafayette junior varsity baseball team last week
against a good Taylor County team. The Bulldogs
blanked the host Hornets 11-0 in a game that Hor-
net basehits were very, very scarce. In fact, the Hor-
nets only managed two singles in the five inning
game. Brooks Lamineck had a third inning base hit
and Austin Henderson collected a fourth inning sin-
gle.
Padgett picked up the win for Taylor County who
struck out nine Hornet batters in the whitewash. He
retired the first six batters he faced until Lamineck's
safety in the third inning with two outs. He then re-
tired six of the last seven batters he faced.
Taylor County held a 2-0 lead until they exploded
for four runs in each of the third and fourth inning.
The Bulldogs added another run in the fifth frame.
The loss dropped Lafayette to 2-3 on the season.
The Hornets return to the diamond Friday night
at home against Hawthorne.

Hardy. Corby Pugh laced
a double down the left
field line scoring Hardy.
Pugh moved to third on a
wild pitch and scored
with Darren Skawienski
grounded out to first
baseman Connor Lash-
ley. Atwell struck out
both Tyler Brown and
Brett Colson to end the
threat.
Lafayette assumed a 5-


2 lead with five runs in
their half of the first in-
ning. Pugh, who started
for Trenton, walked the
first three batters he
faced to load the bases.
All three runners scored
without the benefit of a
base hit. A hit batsman, a
fielder's choice and walk
forced home two run-
ners.
Atwell struck out the
Trenton side in the top of
the second inning and


the Hornets sent 13 bat-
ters to the plate in the
bottom of the inning to
take a 13-2 lead. Lami-
neck singled a run home
as did Chris Allen. There
were four walks in the in-
ning for Lafayette.
The Hornets added
their final run in the bot-
tom of the fourth. Chris
Spradling drew a one out
walk and scored on Lami-
neck's sacrifice fly to left
field. Steve Pittman had
an infield single in the in-
ning but the Hornets left
the bases loaded after
Lashley flied out deep to
left field.
The Hornets will enter-
tain Hawthorne in a 4
p.m. first pitch game Fri-
day night.

Smith's roller back to
the mound was mis-
played by Hempstead
and a bad throw to the
plate failed to get
Gilbert. Jones scored on
the same error which al-
lowed Smith to advance
to second. Two pass
balls allowed Smith to"
dent home plate for the
third run of the inning.
Hempstead got Coby

now we are getting ready
to crown a national cham-
pion as the NCAA Tour-
nament tips off today. By
the way, I pull for the
Florida ,Gators: as well as
Arkansas. John Pelphrey,
Coach at Arkansas, hails
from my hometown in
Kentucky. Of course, Billy


Donovan was a one time
assistant at Kentucky be-
fore becoming a head
coach. I look for the
Gators to be. one of the top
teams (I am talking top
five) next season. Coach
Donovan had a very
young team this past sea-
son and will be ready for
the battles next year.
Well, I could go on and


on but I will tell you to
enjoy your young folks as
they play the games. Go
out and support the high
school teams. Good
sports to everyone and re-
member be good
sports. A reminder not to
send your kids to. Sunday
School this Sunday. Don't
send them. Get out and
take them!


Lafayette made it a 3-2
game with a pair of
fourth inning runs of
their own. Bubba
Fillyaw scorched a drive
that hit off the left cen-
terfield drive for a dou-
ble. Chris Mercedes
went the to the opposite
field for a singe scoring
Fillyaw. Matt Milton fol-
lowed with a safety. Ser-
gio Perez reached on a
bunt single with Milton
taking third. Milton
scored when Ragan
Knight rapped into a
six-four-three double
play.
Hempstead yielded
only one hit over the fi-
nal three innings and
that came in the Trenton
fifth when Kyle Feather
roped a hit to center-
field. Hempstead fanned
Billy Owens and Gilbert
with Justin Alvarez
grounding out in be-
tween the two K's.
Lafayette tied the
game .in their half of the
fifth inning with Jamal
Reid leading off the
frame with a base hit. A


two base throwing error
allowed Reid to go all
the way to third base
where he scored on a *
passed ball to tie the
game. Fillyaw blasted
his second two-bagger
of the game when his
hard hit ball bounced
over the fence for a
ground-rule double.
Hempstead retired the
Tigers in order at the
start of the sixth inning.
The Hornets got the go
ahead run in the bottom
of the sixth on a leadoff
to Milton. Jones then re-
placed Smith on the
mound and promptly
got Perez on strikes.
Knight attempted to
bunt his way aboard but
was retired on the
ground ball to first base.
With two outs and Reid
on third, John Anderson
swung at a called third
strike. But Tiger catcher
Caleb Smith was unable
to come up with the ball
as it sailed to the back-
stop allowing Reid' to,
score what proved to be
the winning run.


Hempstead struck out
the side in the Tigers
half of the seventh for
the win. Smith took the
loss as the pitcher of
record when he depart-
ed in the sixth inning.
The winning run was
charged to him. Smith,
who deserved a better
fate, was sharp from the
mound as his defense
came up with some big
plays. He allowed three
runs on eight hits while
striking out two and hit-
ting one batter. He did
not walk anyone. Jones
did not allow a hit in the
one inning he worked.
Fillyaw had two hits
in the game, both dou-
bles. Mercedes had one
hit with a run batted in.
Three of the four Hornet
runs were unearned.
Cody Singletary singled
in the first inning for
Lafayette. Hempstead
also had one base hit in
the win.
The Hornets will host
Hawthorne tomorrow
night in a district match
up.

Medicare Advantage

Plan Open Enrollment


Through March 31, you
can enroll, disenroll or
change to a Medicare Ad-
vantage Plan.
These plans are health
insurance that take the
place of Original
Medicare. They require
you to make co-pays for
your medical expenses.
Most of the plans in this
area have a monthly pre-
mium and include a Part
D Prescription Drug Plan.
You must have Medicare
Part B insurance in order
to enroll in one of these
plans. If you have a Sup-
plemental Insurance plan,
it will not work with these
types of plans. Supple-
mental Insurance plans
only work with Original
Medicare.
During this Open En-
rollment period, those
Medicare beneficiaries
that are on Original
Medicare, with or without
a Part D Plan, can enroll in
a Medicare Advantage
Plan at this time. Those
already on an Advantage
Plan with a Part D Drug
plan, but are not satisfied
with their plan, can enroll
in a Stand Alone Part D
plan and go back to Origi-
nal Medicare.
If you are considering
joining a Medicare Ad-
vantage Plan, please be
sure you check with your
doctors and hospitals to
see if they accept the plan
before you enroll.

Thank You
The family of Ruth Lawson Brim would like to ex-
press our love and gratitude to everyone that expressed
their love for our mother through visits, flowers, food,
cards and prayers while she was in the hospital, Hos-
pice, and at the time of her going home to be with Jesus.
We miss her very much, but we know she is walking
with Jesus now and we will see her again one day.
May God bless you all.

Is $4 gasoline

on the horizon?


Continued From Page 1A
our area is $4.15 in
Chiefland. Closer to
Mayo, the S & S conve-
nience store across from
the Agricultural Inspec-
* tion Station on SR 27 in
Branford has diesel
priced at $4.09 per gallon.
Other gas stations are on
the verge of breaking the
$4 barrier.
Various factors are to
blame for the spike in gas
prices. According to the
U.S. Energy Information
Administration, the pro-


duction of ethanol as an
alternative fuel source
and an increase in the de-
mand for gasoline from
China, India, the Middle
East, and other Asian
countries are among the
leading causes for the
current price at the
pump.
Bly reminds motorists
to practice driving safety
by doing things such as
checking the air in the
tires. He notes that these
small precautionary mea-
sures will also help pro-
vide savings at the pump.

that several parents attended the Lafayette County

cuss the skateboard park issue. According to the
Clerk of Court's office, no parents showed up at
the meeting.

OWL AND CUCKOO DISPLAY
Pictured, I to r, Taxidermist Vivian Bass and Beth Schoenfelder, president/treasurer of Friends of Suwannee River State Park, hold a
barred owl and yellow-billed cuckoo mounted for educational purposes at the park. Photo: Submitted




Barred owl, killed by accident, is on


display at Suwannee River State Park


Theresa Mooney spotted
something in the step of a truck
driving into Pilgrim's Pride
Plant on US 90 recently. When
she looked more closely she
saw it was a barred owl the
truck had struck and killed.
Her husband, Frank Mooney,
a park ranger at nearby
Suwannee River State Park,
secured the specimen and
contacted the Friends of
Suwannee River State Park
about having the bird mounted.
Owls, even dead ones, are
protected. Frank Mooney
obtained the proper documents
to have the bird mounted for
educational purposes at the
park.
The Friends of Suwannee
River State Park then looked to
the community for help and

found Vivian Bass, owner of a
taxidermy business in
Madison.
Once she was assured the
proper documents had been
secured, she offered to
complete the mounting at no
cost to the park or The Friends
of Suwannee River State Park.
Bass was glad to help so that
children would be able to enjoy
the owl when they came to the
park.
Along with the owl, Bass
also mounted a yellow-billed
cuckoo that flew into a
building and broke its neck.
Beth Schoenfelder, president
of Friends of Suwannee River
State Park, picked the birds up
at Bass' shop in Madison and
delivered it to the park where
they will be on display.

Who Is Most at Risk?
People with fair to light skin remain very susceptible to sunlight. In addition, those
with blond or red hair and green or blue eyes also tend to be more sensitive, as does
anyone taking any of the aforementioned medications.
A great many people also put themselves at a greater risk by allowing themselves to
be exposed to harmful UV rays throughout the summer months. Exposure longer than
30 minutes greatly increases a person's risk for photodermatitis. Exposure between
the hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. only compounds that risk, as 50 percent of UV
radiation is emitted during that time period.
