Discussion regarding the purchase of more
than 300 acres along the Suwannee River by the
Suwannee River Water Management District
generated comments from commissioners as well
as the audience at the Nov. 24 meeting of the
Lafayette County Commission.
"A number of my friends and neighbors in
Lafayette County have questions about the poli-
cies and procedures of the Water Management
District regarding land acquisition as it affects
taxes and taxpayers," local resident Jerry
Wallmeyer told commissioners.
It was noted that there have been public meet-
ings and the Lafayette Board will request anoth-
er one as a way to make the public aware of

Canoeists, kayakers

BY BARBARA GILL
barbara.gill@gaflnews.com
For seven nights, 65 canoeists,
kayakers and others enjoyed
good weather and smooth wa-
ters from Big Shoals to Bran-
ford.
The Paddle Florida Associa-
tion partners with the Florida
Park Service and the Suwannee
River Water Management Dis-
trict as well as other public and
private sectors to help outdoor
enthusiasts enjoy the 171-mile
Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail. The Trail offers 'hubs'
with cabins and other necessi-
ties.
According to Phil McEwen,
an experienced boater, low wa-
ter levels presented a few chal-
lenges. Above the Big Shoals
area, boats had to be carried
through some of the rapids, due
to the exposed shoals. McEwen
explained that for this type of
paddling, a "flat water" kayak
is preferred to a "sea" kayak. A
flat water kayak tracks well and
goes straight, while a sea kayak
can't go straight, but can turn

Nathaniel asked the
question, "Nazareth! Can
anything good come
from there?" Like
Nathaniel, we can often
get the idea that nothing
good can come from
where we are, whether it
be the place we live, the
family we belong to, or
even a difficult situation
we may be in. Rest as-
sured that just as straight
as Gabriel flew to find
Mary, God knows exactly
where you are, and
whatever difficult place,
situation or relationship
you may find yourself
dealing with this season,


take courage in knowing
that God has plans to
prosper you and give
you a hope and a future.
(Jeremiah 29:11)
Another thing that we
learn about Mary is that
she is a virgin, an unmar-
ried woman who has re-
mained sexually pure. It
is interesting that Web-
ster's dictionary gives an
additional definition:
"free from impurity or
stain." Too often, the
holidays are a time of de-
pression and grief for
those with unpleasant
memories, stains from
the past, whether from

HYPOCRITES IN

THE CHURCH


David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling
Young people have
said that you can't tell
the difference between
the Christians and the
non-Christians in school.
What is it like at your
place of employment?
Generally this is the way
it is in society. Those
who claim the title
"Christian" who attend
some sort of church, act
nqc different than those
who never darken the
doors of such institu-
tions.
There are those who
claim to be Christians
who regularly spurn the
laws of our, state and na-
tion and consider them-
selves true to the teach-
ings of the Bible
(Matthew 22:16-22; Ro-
mans 13:1). Some have .
avoided getting married
legally so they can beat
the government out of
taxes! Some have di-
vorced and continued
living together in order
to get increased Social
Security benefits, etc. It
is sad that people in our
country are penalized for


doing things right but
that doesn't' give the
Christian license to be
disobedient to the law of
the land (Romans 13:1)
and to God's Word (Ro-
mans 13:1)!
There should be a dif-
ference. Christians aren't
perfect (note what John
said I John 1:8, 10 while
writing to Christians -I
John 5:13). The Apostle
Paul said, "the good that
I would I do not: but the
evil which I would not,.
that I do" wretched man
that I am! (Romans 7:18,
24), but donft let your
propensity for wrong do-
ing obscure your testi-'
mony for the Lord. Let
your light shine!
Why is it, especially in
the Bible Belt, that anti
Bible legislation poses a
threat? It is because so
many Christians are
Christians in name only.
They are calling them-
selves something they
are. in no way attempting
to live out in their lives.
In a recent poll, it was
determined that only one
, in ten Christians take
their faith seriously
much to the chagrin of
many Pastors (Pastors
polled had set the hum-
ber at about seven in
ten). .Maybe churches
are full of hypocrites.

No trace remains of
that old road to Stein-
hatchee. The passing
years, have seen mother
nature do it's work and
the native vegetation
has returned to it's
original state. I do be-
lieve however, that, a
vestige of that old road
does remain near,calf
creek but haven't taken
a look in recent years. I
don't remember when I
saw it last but the
bridge was still there
and passable. Time has
a way of slipping by
and that must have
been many years ago
so I would expect that
the bridge has been re-
moved for safety rea-
sons and the road al-
lowed to resume it's
role as nature intend-
ed.
After that new road
was paved; tragedy
was not far in the off-
ing. Speeding along on
the way to the "Bay"
was now possible.
Daytime driving was
more of a pleasure as
the cattle didn't have
to come out of those
mosquito infested
woods until after dark
Sto seek refuge on the,
roadway. In a few
years a law was passed
that required fences for


cattle, doing away with
the old "open range"
days and night time
travel was also made
much better and faster
and that seemed to be
a factor in more acci-
dents occurring on that
road. A conservative
guess would be that
the time needed to
travel from Mayo to
Deadman's Bay was re-
duced by as much as
half, and most likely
more than that after
that new road was
opened.
Soon after it was
paved and opened to
traffic, one local man
lost his life on that
road. Olin Hatcher was
killed after the car he
was riding in turned
over on the curve com-
ing into. Mayo. His son,
Harold who was dri-
ving was not seriously
injured and soon after-
wards entered the mili-
tary as a seaman when
the war with Japan
broke out after a das-
tardly sneak attack on
Pearl Harbor by the
Empire of Japan.
Since that accident
there have been several
more over the years
that I can recall. I very
nearly became a victim

friends, Robin Shiver
and wife Vera. We had

do a little giging in

from shore than good
judgment would seem
to dictate but we had
no qualms about the
fact that there were
sharks hanging out
around those bird
roosts or that our little
outboard motor was
not flawless.
Once Robin speared a
good sized shark that
came into the range of
his spear gun and with
a little help from others
nearby, had ended it's
career of scavenging.
One event that went
unreported by me was
one day while at the
bottom poking around
some rocks for my next
victim, the light sud-
denly vanished and the
sunlight had been
shielded by the pres-
ence of a very large ob-


ject directly above me. I
quickly calculated that
another shark had
come on the scene and
this time it was the
granddaddy of them all
so I swam away as far
as I could with the re-
maining air in my
lungs and when I came
up, gasping for air, I
headed for the boat.
That turned out to be
my last or one of my
last expeditions of that
sort.
We shared many
good meals with the
take from those catches
and that brings back
lots of pleasant memo-
ries. Over the ensuing
years there were many
gatherings among these
families where good
food and fellowship
was enjoyed.

Stock Up Now on Cold and Flu Supplies


Aches, pains, stuffy nose, watery eyes. A cold and the flu share so
many of the same symptoms that it can be difficult to tell them apart.
However, medical experts say that one of the key identifiers for flu is
the sudden onset of a high fever. Proper diagnosis can make the
difference in treating cold and flu and feeling relief faster, and getting
an accurate and easy temperature reading is important.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
flu season in the United States usually ranges from November through
March, and sometimes lasts into early spring. Colds crop up at roughly
the same time and may overlap with allergy seasons in the spring and
fall. A combination of chilly, dry air and more time spent indoors
within close proximity to others already carrying the cold or flu virus
are what makes the fall and winter prime times.to catch a cold or flu
bug.
Tens of millions of adults and children succumb to flu every year in
the United States alone. New antiviral drugs can help to limit
symptoms and shorten the flu's duration. However, because the drugs
must be given early to be most effective, a correct diagnosis is critical.
--The Exergen TemporalScannerr) gently and accurately measures body
temperature in just two seconds by capturing the naturally emitted heat
from skin with a gentle scan over the temporal artery, located on the
forehead just below the skin, which is directly connected to the heart
via the carotid artery. Over two dozen independent medical studies
attest to its accuracy for people ofalLages. Because using the Exergen
TemporalScanner is less invasive than a-tympanic (ear), rectal or oral
thermometer, temperature can be taken while a person is, asleep or
even when a child is ill.
"Research proves that this is one of the most accurate ways to test for
fever in all ages and it is clearly the least invasive," says Exergen
Corporation President Francesco Pompei, Ph.D., who developed and
patented the technology. "It makes taking a child's temperature as easy
as possible, and because of its patented arterial heat balance
technology, it also provides a better way to take a temperature for
adults and senior citizens."
The Exergen TemporalScanner is better for the environment, as it uses
infrared sensor technology rather than the mercury found in traditional
glass bulb thermometers. Also it doesn't contribute to any extra waste,
such as probe covers from tympanic thermometers, which are also less
accurate at detecting temperature according-to Harvard Medical
School study. ,
While an accurate and user-friendly thermometer is essential to have,
on hand during the cold and flu season, it's important to stock the
home with some other useful supplies. The following products can
make a sick child or adult feel more comfortable and get better faster.
As always, contact your doctor for advice.
Fever reducer: Many doctors suggest a fever should generally be
allowed to run its course, as it's the body's natural way of fighting
foreign invaders, like bacteria and .- ,
viruses. However, in the case of a Phys uIca ltarmnpy i
-very high fever and much
discomfort, intermittent dosing t
with acetaminophen or ibuprofen HLlV
can help. Never give a child or REHABILITATION SERVICES

* Fluids: Fever can cause dehydration due to the higher body
temperatures causing a greater fluid loss than at normal temperatures.
Also, vomiting and diarrhea can greatly contribute to dehydration.
Therefore ample fluids are nee-dedto-replenish the fluids lost such as
drinking water andjuice, and especially chicken soup (your mother
was right).
* Vapor rubs: It is no longer recommended to give many cold and flu
products to children to alleviate congestion symptoms. Menthol vapor
rubs can help open up air passages and ease coughing; A spoonful of
honey for anyone over the age of one can also soothe the throat and
calm coughs.
* Neti pot: This small device is used to clear out nasal passages with
soothing warm water. Saline nasal sprays may also provide some relief.
* Humidifier: Doctors recommend steamy showers for helping to
reduce congestion. Running a room humidifier can also combat dry air
indoors and make-breathing easier. -. .....
Cold and flu season is seldom fun, but with a few supplies and early
diagnosis, individuals can be made more comfortable. For more

Roy and Shirley Guercio, owners of Live Oak's Dairy

Queen, are this year's Christmas on the Square

Parade Grand Marshals!


By Vivian Starling
After more than 28 years of living in the hustle and bustle of south Florida
Roy and Shirley Guercio decided to moved north. Roy, who had been a part
of the WTVJ Channel 4 team in Miami for 22 years, and Shirley a stay-at
-home mom who managed rental property owned by ,the Guercios, decided
Alachua County seemed the logical area. After all, they had a daughter attend-
ing the University of Florida and the move would be perfect. Roy obtained a
real estate license and Shirley who had her real estate license began exploring
the surrounding area for business opportunities. It seemed Roy and Shirley
was still looking for that "small town" where they could be a part of the com-
munity and make a difference. Live Oak and Suwannee County caught their
interest and in 1993 when they purchased the franchise of the local Dairy
Queen in Live Oak Roy and Shirley knew they had come home. Roy and
Shirley knew immediately it was important to, "get involved in the county, not
just say we were committed to making a difference, but show that we were
physically and financially committed to making that difference where we live
and work", reflected Roy and Shirley.
And what a difference they have made since 1993! It has been that commit-
ment that has shined through in their involvement in the community. The
Guercios have sponsored every activity you could think of from area Little
League football, baseball, soccer teams to school benefits for area elementary
schools which could help raise as much as $1700 at each event, to the "Gold
Card" presented to youth who make the Honor Roll. "I can remember we
would start three days in advance lining things up for parents and teachers to
come into DQ and put on the three hour fund-raising event, it takes a lot of
prep and follow through. It was so worth the investment to see the smiles on
the parents, .children and teachers faces when they reached a goal or were able
to do a special school project or trip," reflects Shirley. "One of my most hap-
piest moments was when I presented a young lady a $500 scholarship from
DQ.. .to see the look on the faces of these young people, well it's just some-
thing you don't forget," Roy Guercio said. "It's important for a business to be
a part of the community and the community to be a part of the business, it all
comes back as the. Bible says to you in the end."
That is what the Guercios have strived to be... good stewards of the commu-
nity. One of many examples is the Guercios and DQ supporting the area 269th
National Guard Unit when deployed in 2003. Families received discounts
when they presented their military id cards. But it goes beyond Suwannee
County, "Mr. Roy" is a United States Army Veteran from the Vietnam war.
After enlisting in the Army and five months of infantry training "Mr. Roy" was
chosen for the Presidential Honor Guard 1st Bat. 3rdlnfantry. Roy and
Shirley's commitment to the men and women and families who serve in the
United States Military is there for everyone to witness as they enter DQ. As
this interview was taking place a neon sign caught the attention of one family
as they placed their order. It moved the mother to seek out Roy and Shirley to
personally thank them. "Thank you for remembering my son you don't
know him, his name is Gary and he recently finished a tour in the Persian
Gulf," Gary's mother Susan Borchardt stated. The Borchardts, who are from
Columbia County, were in Live Oak for a sporting event and ABH Borchardt is
currently serving on the USS Ronald Regan. The sign simply asked folks to
remember our military men and women and God Bless American.
Roy and Shirley, who will celebrate their 42nd wedding anniversary in May
2009 live by the golden rule -according to "Mr. Roy" "you treat others the,;
Way you want to be treated and it comes right back to you double fold, that's
why our.business has been so successful. Another important factor is I've had
Shirley for my partner, I couldn't have done none of this without her," simply
stated Roy. Ms. Shirley has encouraged Mr. Roy to serve their community
through various civic and service organizations while she takes care of the


business aspects over the years. "Mr. Roy "reflects joining the Live Oak Ro-
, tary Club was one of the best things he ever did, "I have received more than I
ever gave." Roy served seven years on the Rotary Board of Directors, eight
years with United Way, and two years on the Suwannee County Chamber of
Commerce Board of Directors. "Mr. Roy" has served on "Christmas on the
Square" Committee for the past five years as well. Currently, Roy gets the
most joy from serving as a counselor for SCORE which counsels with young
people who are interested in starting a business or who have just formed a new
business. Although SCORE was organized in Columbia "Mr. Roy" serves in
the Suwannee County area. "We Shirley and I, have truly been blessed. DQ
has been a way of life for Shirley and myself and thanks to the community,
great employees and lots of work we are looking forward to semi-retirement (I
have a feeling spending more time doing what they love most spoiling their
four granddaughters is top on the list), and turning our business over to our
daughter Suzanne and her husband. "This will be a second generation busi-
ness and hopefully one day a third generation with our grandchildren," stated
Roy & Shirley.' There is so much more we could share about "Mr. Roy" &
"Ms. Shirley" but nothing more important than their love for the community
and the folks they serve at DQ. "Mr. Roy" & "Ms. Shirley" thank you for all
you do, we are truly honored.to have you serve as our Parade Grand Marshals
and be a part of the Suwannee County Community!
