PIfF 9L .- THE MAYO FREE PRES Mayo. F TUSA A 24, 2008


He~ar atwo


Envy, Greed, Pride. For the past
three weeks, Heart Matters has con-
centrated on the spring cleaning of our
hearts and relationships by exposing
these formidable enemies that can do
real damage if left in place, but what
about that occasional "white lie" or
"half truth?" Where do they fit in this
line-up?
Dishonesty is no doubt one of the
more subtle of opponents, and often
not taken seriously as a sin. However,
according to the Bible, deception is in-
credibly dangerous. Proverbs 26:19
addresses this problem: "Like a mad-
man shooting deadly arrows is a man
who deceives his neighbor and says, "I
was only joking!" The Message Bible
gives us a contemporary look at this
same verse: "People who shrug off de-
liberate deceptions say, I didn't mean
it, I was only joking," are worse than
careless campers who walk away from
smoldering campfires."
Point taken, not being honest with
others, especially those we are in rela-
tionships with, will cause them, and us
to get burned!
The definition for deceive is to lie; to
cause others to accept that which is
false as true or valid, while deceitful
implies the intent to mislead by a false
appearance or double-dealing. Lead-
ing others to believe you are some-
thing you're not, or that you will do
something you have no intention of
doing qualifies as deceit. It is very in-
teresting that the original Greek word
for deceit actually means, "trap." In
this context, have you ever felt as
though you were trapped by someone
else's lie? Left holding the bag by
someone you thought you could trust?
Or maybe you were the one laying the
trap to protect yourself or just to get
what you wanted. The problem is that
while practicing deceit may get you off
the hot seat immediately, or let you
have your way, Psalm 7:15 warns us
that "He who digs a hole and scoops it
out falls into the pit he has made."
The Bible records several instances
of deceivers being caught up in a trap
of deception. The 27th chapter of Gen-
esis tells one such story of Jacob de-


ceiving his father, by
pretending to be his
older brother in order
to gain the firstborn's
portion of inheritance
and it worked. He
must have felt quite
clever. Fast-forward Angie Land
to chapter 29, and we
find the shoe on the other foot. Jacob's
future father-in-law deceived him into
working seven years for his daughter's
hand only to find after the ceremony
that it was the wrong woman wearing
that wedding dress! Jacob now knew
what it felt like to be on the receiving
end of deception, he fell into that pit he
scooped out with his own hands!
Practicing deception is wrong be-
cause it contradicts the very nature of
God. God is truth. By it's own defini-
tion, deceit lays a trap, but the Bible
tells us that the truth will set us free.
(John 8:32) We are called to speak the
truth in love, in our relationships, on
the job, in our families, because though
subtle, deception is a real enemy of
your heart and your heart matters!

Blessings, Angie

On Saturday, May 3, at 10:30 a.m.,

Matters for Women." Women of all

ighth-grader Cartesha
Macklin and sophomore
Kelsey Land collected four
hits and five runs-batted-
in in helping the Lafayette
Lady Hornets to a 7-0 win over rival
Trenton last Thursday afternoon. Land
and Macklin each had two hits in the
win. Macklin drove in three runs and
Land two in leading the Lady Hornet
offense.
Lyndsey Hamlin, who struggled
most of the game, kept her poise and
picked up the win in going the dis-
tance in getting the win. Hamlin
worked off jams in both the first and
fourth innings in shutting out the Lady
Tigers. Hamlin got excellent defensive
play from her teammates, especially se-
nior shortstop Natalie Land. In the
Trenton fourth, the Lady Tigers had
loaded the bases with only one out
against Hamlin.


Hamlin surrendered a lead off infield
hit to Jo Hutchinson before retiring
Kaitlyn Souls on a soft liner back to the
mound. She then walked Sam Mc-
Queen and Amanda Haimer to load
the bases. Going hard to her left, Land
fielded a hard hit grounder off the bat
of Alexis Dixon and turned it into a 6
unassisted to first double play to end
the Trenton threat.
In the Trenton first, a walk and hit
batter put two runners on the base
paths. But Land fielded a ground ball
to get Hutchinson at first for the third
out. Hamlin appeared to get stronger
as the game progressed. She retired the
final seven batters she faced in the
game. She struck out four and walked
four, uncharacteristic of Hamlin.
The key hit of the game came off the
bat of Macklin in the Lady Hornets sec-
ond inning. With two outs, Kali Sapp
bunted her way on and Natalie Land
walked. Both runners rode home on
Macklin's long triple to centerfield to


give Lafayette a 3-0 lead. The ball came
close to leaving the park. Lafayette
took a 1-0 lead in the first when Land
opened with a double, stole third, scor-
ing on Hamlin's sacrifice fly to right
field.
Lafayette added two runs in the
fourth and a single run in the sixth to
complete the scoring. Kelsey Land
drove in both runs in the fourth. Natal-
ie Land opened the Lady Hornets sixth
with a long triple to right center. She
came on to score on Macklin's sacrifice
fly to centerfield.
Kara Young, Toni Jackson, Kali Sapp
and Ashley Shaw collected base hits for
the Lady Hornets. Lafayette played er-
rorless softball leaving seven runners
stranded on base. Trenton could only
manage three hits against Hamlin.
They stranded eight base runners,
Tarah Vicks suffered the setback for the
Lady Tigers giving up seven runs on 11
hits. She had four strike outs and
walked two batters.

team scored two runs in
the top of the seventh in-

in politics. "My first ex-
posure to politics was
when I was in the 11th
grade," he said. "It was
purely by accident. A
friend of mine, Jill
Nolan, who was a high
school senior at the
time, convinced me to
run for FBLA district
vice president and
helped me and another
friend, India Watkins, as
FBLA district presi-
dent."
When the final vote
was counted,
Aderibigbe created his-
tory by becoming the
first LHS student to be
elected FBLA state sec-
retary. He also served as
FBLA District Five vice
president and partici-
pated in the Florida Sen-
ate as a page while in
the 11th and 12th
grades.
After graduating from
LHS in 2003, Aderibigbe
attended Santa Fe Com-
munity College in
Gainesville, where he
served in various gov-
ernmental roles, and
joined the Republican
Party of Florida. Ac-
cording to Aderibigbe,
Betty Land nominated
him to represent
Lafayette County as a
state committeeman.
Land currently serves as
chairwoman of the
Lafayette County Re-
publican Party.
Aderibigbe is current-
ly pursuing a B.S.B.A.
degree in management
from the University of
Central Florida and
hopes to graduate soon.
Before he began taking
classes there, he worked
at Mayo Town and
Country Animal Hospi-
tal in Mayo from 2001 to
2007.
Aderibigbe has lived
in Lafayette County
with his mother,
Dorothy Aderibigbe,
and his sister, Tiffany
since 1997. They moved
here when he was in the
seventh grade. His fa-
ther, Adewale
Aderibigbe, lives in
Nigeria, West Africa
where he has retired
from the post of assis-
tant director of the Fed-
eral Ministry of Envi-
ronment.
Aderibigbe says he
loves Lafayette County
and its people.
"Lafayette County is a
beautiful, rural commu-
nity where faith, morali-
ty, and family values are
at its core," Aderibigbe
said.

For dthe past 24 years
Jarvis has been with the
state attorney's office
handling not only a full
felony, misdemeanor
and juvenile caseload,
but he has also held the
sole responsibility for the
state attorney's office in
civil matters in which the
state of Florida is a party.
These include, among
other things, bond vali-
dations, civil liability
claims and mental health
commitments. For some
20 years he handled as a
part of his duties contra-
band forfeiture actions
for the Suwannee Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office and the
Live Oak Police Depart-
ment, turning over
monies and properties
used by criminals in their
felony crimes to the ap-

For the past 20 years,

eas he wishes to address
by his candidacy.
First, the state attorney
must be opert and ac-
countable to the people
he represents. Any and
all citizens must be free
to openly and candidly
speak with their state at-
torney regarding matters
of concern to them. Jarvis
has a reputation for being
accessible to the public.
He states that while he
may not be able to dis-
close information or give
the answer they wish to
hear, all citizens should
have access to their gov-
ernmental prosecutor.
Second, as a prosecu-
tor, the state attorney
must be law enforcement
oriented. There must be
a partnership with law
enforcement agencies,
while maintaining inde-
pendence and discretion,
which is necessary to
make appropriate charg-
ing decisions. Jarvis's
bachelor's degree in
criminology, his certifi-
cation in law enforce-
ment, and his training of
and close relationship
with his former students
have prepared him to
work closely with and

Third, the state attor-
ney must be a person of
integrity. Personal inter-
ests or politics must nev-
er take priority over his
commitment to the peo-
ple. The office belongs to
the people, not the elect-
ed individual.
Jarvis has been married
for 39 years to Pamela
Manasco Jarvis, who
works at Cheek and Scott
Drugs in Live Oak. They
have two daughters, Beth
Jarvis Cohen and Sara
Jarvis Patton, and five
grandchildren.
He received an Honor-
able Discharge from the
United States Navy.
Being a long time resi-

in Suwannee County,
Jarvis says he has a vest-
ed interest in seeing that
the citizens receive the
best representation and
protection available, cou-
pled with a responsibility

spent.

"For years I've studied the art of master painters in books," says Sunshine Wright. "Yet details, like the second umbrella
in Claude Monet's painting of 'The Luncheon,' are often lost within the small prints of a book. Viewing their life-sized
paintings in person has increased my appreciation of their skill in preserving everyday life as works of art. They are my
inspiration when I'm digitally painting the portraits of our clients."

Creating 'portrait art' as family heirlooms has been an
ongoing passion for Richard and Sunshine Wright,
owners of Colonial Photography in Live Oak. Recently,
as part of their commitment to continual education in
art and business, the Wrights spent four days in Paris,
France, followed by an intensive two-day seminar in
North Carolina with master photographers, Reg and
Jacqueline Mess of British Columbia, Canada.
The choice to travel to art museums in Paris was not
only to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary, but to
also continue the tradition of their mentor, world-
renown master photographer Jay'Stock, who they
accompanied on visits to art and photography museums
during their five-year study course with him. "For years
I've studied the art of master painters in books," said
Sunshine. "Yet details, like the second umbrella in
Claude Monet's painting of 'The Luncheon,' are often
lost within the small prints of a book. Viewing their life-
sized paintings in person has increased my appreciation
of their skill in preserving everyday life as works of art.
They are my inspiration when I'm digitally painting the
portraits of our clients."
The two-day seminar in North Carolina focused on
the art of serving the needs of clients while creating
custom portrait art. This seminar was unique because it
provided hands-on training and role-playing. "By sitting
in the client's chair and experiencing our services from
their perspective, we better understand how they feel
and are empowered to create a superior portrait while
serving them from our heart," said Sunshine.
During their tour of Versailles, Richard Wright was
impressed by how the king's palace was decorated with
life-sized paintings of his personal family rather than
landscapes. "When you think about it, 'The Luncheon'
is Monet's painting of his family playing in their yard,"
he remarked. "The works of art now hanging in
museums were originally personal portrait art gracing
the walls of family homes. That's why Colonial's line of
Signature Portrait Art is designed as personal custom
'wall d6cor.' Because your family is your masterpiece
and deserves to be preserved as a work of art."
Richard and Sunshine Wright are the owners of
Colonial Photography of Live Oak,

appreciates donations; it couldn't
operate without them. Donations
are the heart and soul of its thrift
shop income. Please consider
taking them donations of clothes,
household goods, furniture and
toys. All donations should be in
good condition; otherwise, they
cannot sell them. Thank you!
Volunteers are wanted and
needed four hours a week on the
day of your choice. Call to learn
more. People are always needed
to hold, pet, love and walk the
homeless animals at the shelter,
so if you can't adopt you can
always come help in many other
ways.
RECYCLING BINS:
Live Oak: There is a


newspaper recycling bin at 305
Pinewood Drive, Live Oak, just
west of Johnson's
Appliance/Radio Shack.
Lee: Recycling bins are
located at the shelter at 1156 SE
Bisbee Loop, Madison (just
South of Lee) for newspapers,
catalogs, paper, magazines and
broken down cardboard. All the
money goes to help the homeless
animals.
SPAYING AND NEUTERING:
Experts say the most important
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 puppies.
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 needing 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.
Featured animals for adoption:
Remember, do not leave pets
in vehicles for any length of time
due to the heat and humidity or
cold weather.

ILE 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:
dance with your house to receive power directly from a portable
tions. generator as opposed to power normally supplied by
SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits supplied by
a generator indoors the generator and prevent backfeeding inadvertently

from air intakes to
SBackfeeding can most commonly occur when a
generator is connected directly to the electric panel or
ual appliances into circuit in a home. Feeding power back into the utility
or rated cords with system during an outage will energize the transformer
ce load. serving the house and could pose a serious threat to line
and service and tree crews working to restore power in

A Long Life Starts With a Healthy Lifestyle


As the aging prbcess progresses, most men begin making
health a priority. But many of the health problems both
men and women encounter as they age are the result of
lifestyle choices they made when they were younger and
continued to practice as they got older. Simply put, what's
done to a body today will affect how it behaves tomorrow.
Fortunately, the human body has an amazing capacity to
recuperate, meaning it's never too late to make lifestyle
changes that can make a person's golden years more
healthy and enjoyable. While the term "lifestyle change"
can seem overwhelming, many of these changes are far
easier to put into practice than it might seem.
SWatch your weight. Obesity levels have exceeded,
reached or are approaching all-time highs in many
developed nations. Obesity can be especially harmful to
adults approaching their senior years, as obesity increases
a person's risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke,
and heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things a
person can do to avoid the series of problems that men and
women can encounter as they get older. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points out that
defining a healthy weight depends on a number of
individual factors. For example, age is a determining
factor, as a healthy weight for an individual at 45 might
not be considered healthy when that individual turns 60.
Because each person is unique, defining a healthy weight
is something that should be discussed on a case-by-case
basis with a physician. Even if a friend of the same age
and similar body type has been given a healthy weight, for
instance, this doesn't mean that's a healthy weight for all
people of that age and body type. Past health history and
physical activity level are significant factors in
determining a healthy weight, too.
Make dietary changes. To some, the thought of
changing their diet is an unwelcome one. Because food is
such a big part of most people's lives, this is often seen as
the most difficult lifestyle change to make. However, a
series of subtle changes as opposed to a massive dietary
overhaul can do the trick.
While many people eat healthily during their three meals
per day, it's the in-between meals hours where diet often
suffers the most. Snacks high in saturated fat, such as
potato chips, can be very unhealthy. By switching snacks
to a serving of fruit or vegetables, men and women can
ensure they're getting their recommended servings each
day, and may be reducing the risk of cancer and other
chronic diseases as a result. The majority of fruits and
vegetables are low in fat and calories, and also provide
essential vitamins and minerals. For those unsure of how
much fruit or vegetables they should be eating each day,
the CDC offers a fruits and vegetables calculator on its
Web site at www.cdc.gov.
Be more active. Becoming more physically active is
something many adults need to do. The CDC estimates
that 50 percent of American men and women do not get
enough physical activity to provide health benefits.
Physicians recommend 30 minutes of daily, moderate
physical exercise. While finding the time each day can be
a commitment, 30 minutes, the length of a typical
television sitcom, really is not much time at all.


Daily exercise is a valuable tool for men and women looking to get
and stay healthier.

Those who haven't been active in a while need to ease back into being
physically active, perhaps starting with a daily walk on flat ground and
then gradually tailoring a routine that is more challenging and beneficial
as the body acclimates itself to daily activity. Again, because every
person is unique, it's best to consult a physician before beginning any
new exercise routine.
Recognize and' deal with stress. Stress can be very harmful to all
men and women. The negative side effects of stress are both physical
and mental. Stress can lead to excess weight gain, which, as previously
mentioned, can increase the likelihood of heart disease, stroke, high
blood pressure, and diabetes. Mentally, excess stress affects mood,
which can negatively impact relationships with friends, family and
coworkers.
While stress is a fact of life for most, both in their professional and
private lives, it's important to recognize that stress can be very
detrimental. Though there are no guaranteed and foolproof ways to
reduce and manage stress, research has shown that exercise has proven
a reliable source of stress relief for many people.

id Ya ,now?
More than 70 countries across the globe now have some form of freedom
of information legislation. Such laws vary by country, but typically
provide public access to government information or records. In the United
States, the Freedom of Information Act became law in 1966 under then-
President Lyndon Johnson. The Act was then updated with the Electronic
Freedom of Information Act amendments under President Bill Clinton in
1996. While the act only applied to federal agencies, all of the states and
territories have statutes requiring the disclosure ofjnformatiori by state and
local governments. The United Kingdom enacted their own Freedom of
Information Act in 2000, while Canada's Access to Information Act in
1983 allowed citizens access to government-controlled information. The
trailblazer for freedom of information legislation is believed to be Sweden,
who enacted their Freedom of the Press Act in 1766, though the act at that
time was far more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 436148-F
