In the South, we call
it "havin, a hissy fit."
Picture a two-year old
on the floor kicking and
their own way and hav-
ing a temper tantrum to
get it. If you haven't
heard one lately, walk
near the toy aisle or the
candy rack at Wal-Mart,
and chances are good
that you will. To be
sure,!a two-year old
doesn't leave home
planning to throw a fit,
it happens when the de-
sire for something arises
and there is no under-
standing of how to deal
with those desires if
they aren't satisfied.
While these scenarios
are far from pleasant,
they are necessary life
lessons in maturing. The
real problem comes
when a tartrum pro-
duces positive results
instead pf unpleasant
behavior that gets us
what we want willbe
continued. If we never
hear the word "no," we
will not develop the
ability to control our de-
sires and feelings no
matter what our age. To
be immature is to be in-
complete or underdevel-
oped, and unfortunately
two year olds are not
the only ones suffering
from this condition.
The Bible addresses
maturity in what is
:commonly referred to as
the "love chapter," of all
places!t I Corinthians
13:11 has this to say:
"When I was a child, I
talked like a child, I
thought like a child, I
reasoned like a child. ;I
When I became a man, I
put childish ways be-
While hopefully you
haven't witnessed a
by any adults lately, im-
maturity affects many
over the age of 18, espe-
cially in the arena of re-
tantrums may look a bit
different at an older age,
but call them what they ,
are,'throwing a fit to get
your way. Whether us-
slamming doors and
throwing things, or ma-
nipulation: giving the
cold shoulder, refusing
to talk, withholding af-
fection, the real issue is
immaturity. When we
continue to talk, think
and reason like a child,
we are refusing to put
childish ways behind
According to Christ-
ian authors Henry
Cloud and John
Townsend, "The good
thing about immaturity
is that it is not an incur-
able disease. The right
treatment will get rid of
it." What do they rec-
ommend? First, let's
own up to immature be-'
havior in ourselves and
recognize the impact it
is having on our rela-
tionships. Second, hang
in there arid commit to
discuss and work
through conflict without
trying to deny it or ex-
ploding. Imagine that
same two-year old we
first mentioned, stand-
ing up, brushing himself
off and saying, "You
know Mom, you're
right.1 don't need that
toy today. I'll just look
forward to getting it for
my birthday." That level
of maturity in a child
would make our jaws
drop, and facing our
own immaturity may
have the same affect on
our loved ones! Not
easy, but right, and the
first step toward maturi-
ty. Having great rela-
tionships are worth the
effort, because their
hearts, and yours, really

USDA Livestock Disaster
Documentation of Loss
According to Debby Folsorn, Acting State Executive
Director for USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA) in
Florida, livestock producers who incurred eligible
livestock death losses due to adverse weather events
on or after January 1, 2008, and before October 1,
2011, should begin gatherifig related loss documenta-
tion in accordance with FSA's Livestock Indemnity
Program (LIP) provisions.
"Losses because of adverse weather, as determined
by the Secretary of Agriculture during the calendar
year, including blizzards, disease, extreme cold, ex-
treme heat, floods, hurricanes, and wildfires, are eligi-
ble for LIP," said Folsom.
Producers are advised that verifiable death loss
documentation will not be accepted by FSA County
Offices until LIP applications are filed.
Adequate documentation must prove the death of
eligible livestock occurred as a-direct result of an eli-
gible adverse weather event in the calendar year for
which benefits are being requested. ,
If adequate verifiable proof of death records docu-
mentation is not available, a livestock producer may
provide reliable records, along with verifiable begin-
ning and ending inventory, as proof of death.
Certifications of livestock deaths by third parties
may be accepted only if verifiable proof of death
records or reliable proof of death records along with
verifiable beginning and ending inventory records.
are not available. A third party statement is an inde-
pendent source who is not affiliated with the farming
operation, suchas a hired hand or a family member.
"Our staff can provide producers with a list of ac-
ceptable proof of death, producer records and verifi-
able inventory documentation," said Folsom. "LIP
indemnity payments will be 75 percent of the fair
market value of the livestock as determined by the
Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), ,

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
TOWN OF MAYO
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about
the quality water and services wve deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and
dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water
treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water
sources are two deep wells located off CR-400 in Mayo.
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The
assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our
wells. There are three potential sources of contamination identified for this system with Moderate susceptibility levels.
The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at
HYPERLINK "http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp" www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
If you have any questions about.this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Aaron Lawson at 294-1551.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend
any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at Town
The Town of Mayo routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2008.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs
are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal-or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of
the water sample.
Parts per billion .(ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of
the water sample.'

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.
Lead in drinking water is primarily from, materials and components associated with service lines' and home plumbing.
South Dunnellon Water Association is responsible for providing high quality'drinking water, but cannot control.the
variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water, has been sitting for several hours, you can
minimize the potential for lead.exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for
drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water, tested.
Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from
the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at HYPERLINK "http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead"
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels .over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and,'in some eases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or
from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
intiustrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations
establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at
risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
"We at the Town of Mayo work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap" said Aaron Lawson. "We ask
that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our

From your school resource officer
Sgt. Scott Hamlin
Thank you for taking the
time to read another article
from your friendly neigh-
borhood School Resource
Officer. Another school
year is almost over and we
are beginning to see the
signs of that time. I guess
the first thing I would like
to comment on is the LHS
Prom. For the first time I
can remember, the Prom
was not held at Lafayette
High this year. It was held
at the La Chateau here in,
Mayo. I was delightfully
surprised at how well this
event was handled by the
students. The students
handled themselves in a
very mature manner from
what I saw and from what
I was told. I would like to
thank the Town of Mayo
for allowing the Sheriffs
Office to dose the road to
the North and East of the
Chateau. Closing of these
roads allowed the students
to enter and leave the Prom
in a safe manner. Thanks
go to all the Deputies that
came and assisted me in
- We just finished with the'
DARE program at
Lafayette. Middle School.
The students and I held
DARE Graduation on
March 27, 2009 in the cafe-
teria at LHS. We graduat-
ed 87 students this year.
For those who are not fa-
miliar with DARE, it is an
acronym for Drug Abuse
Resistance Education. This
is a 10 week course that
teaches the students the
dangers of drugs, alcohol,
and other type drugs. The
lessons ,teach students
what drugs can do to their
minds and bodies, how to
handle themselves if they
are ever offered these
items, how to respect
themselves and others,
and how to try and man-
age their tempers. I want
parents to understand.that
the lessons these students
have learned at school is
not worth the time that it
took me to teach or for
them to listen if-these life
lessons do not continue at
home. We have to practice
what we preach to these
kids. If we tell them not to
smoke dope and they see
Mom or Dad doing it, then
what kind of an example
are we setting for them?
Please do not be scared
to talk to your kids about
drugs and tell them what
you know about them. I
would almost promise that
before they reach adult-
hood someone will offer
them illegal drugs of some
sort. Would you like to be
the parent that when this
happens your child comes
home and says "well Dad
you said it would happen
and it did, but I remem-
bered what you said and I
said rio," or would you like
to be the parent that re-
ceives a call from the local
Sheriff and he explains that
your child has been arrest-
ed for possession of an ille-
gal drug? What is worse
than that is the Sheriff
pulling up in your front
yard and knocking on
your door to tell you that
your child has died from a
drug overdose? Think
about it, a little time talking
to your child could pre-
vent this. If it did not pre-
vent it at least you could
say that you tried every-
thing possible to make
your child understand the
dangers of drinking or us-
We send our children to
school to receive an educa-
tion, but it does not stop
there. We must continue to
raise our children in our
homes and raise them the
right way. I have a bumper
sticker from the Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice
that reads; spend time with
your children fnow, so we
won't have to later. When
I first read it I thought it
was funny but the longer I
am in law enforcement the
more I seeitis true. Alot of
times our kids make mis-
takes and we all suffer the
consequences. I feel that if
we take time with our kids
now it will be worth all the
extra time we put in. If for
no other reason they -are
going to have to take care
of us when we get old. Do
you want someone taking
care of you that will steal
you blind when they are
there, or do you want your
child who you trust with
your life and know that
everything they do will be
in the best interest of all in-
volved? I know first hand
it is not easy to raise a child
in this world, but I know
this community has the
ability to' come together
and we can raise our next
generation to something
we can all be proud off. Till
next time, have a safe and
great summer with your

Sometimes the signs of child abuse can't be seen by the outside world, but the scars caused by verbal abuse can linger inside for
a lifetime. Verbal abuse can make a child feel unloved, unwanted, insecure and unworthy, often leading to behavioral problems,
depression and anxiety. The next time you're about to lose your temper, stop, take a deep breath and think ab6ut what is really
upsetting you. Before you speak, consider how the words you're about to say will sound to your child.

Dietary Tips to Keep Seniors Going Strong
When it comes to our bodies, age has no bearing on how attentive we
should be with respect to what we eat. No one is ever too young or too old to
disregard their diet.
However, a healthy diet is perhaps more important for seniors than any
other age group, with the exception of infants. For seniors, a healthy diet can
strengthen the immune system and promote bone'health, making seniors less
susceptible to sickness and less likely to suffer harmful injuries should they
slip and fall. The following diet tips can help seniors stay healthy, strong and
Include fiber in your diet. Seniors commonly suffer from constipation.
Though uncomfortable, this condition is often preventable. So why such a
common problem? Oftentimes, foods that are high ill fiber are crunchy or
more difficult to chew, which is problematic for seniors with dentures.
However, dentures don't have to preclude seniors from enjoying a diet with a
healthy amount of fiber. Instead, seek alternate sources of fiber, such as fresh
fruit or cooked or baked vegetables.
Remember to drink fluids. As we age, we start losing our sense of thirst.
However, fluids don't become any less important simply because we're less
thirsty. Doctors recommend seniors have between six to eight glasses of
fluids per day. Drinking water, for instance, helps us maintain energy while
also helping the body perform a variety of functions, including transporting
oxygen and nutrients to cells and building new tissue and cell membranes.
Drinking enough can also help prevent constipation. So it's important for
seniors to remember the importance of drinking fluids each day, even if one "
is not feeling thirsty.
Include protein in your daily diet. Protein is integral to a healthy diet. "'-
regardless of a person's age. But seniors can especially benefit from proteinlsq
ability to strengthen the immune system, hence lessening their likelihood olL,'j
falling victim to colds or other ailments that can act as gateways to bigger J.
problems. Fish, poultry. eggs and lean meats are all good sources of proteinT. 3
Reduce. but don't eliminate, fat from your diet. Because our metabolism,,,
slows as we age. it's important to reduce the amount of fat in our diet as we", -i
age. However, reduction is not synonymous with elimination. Fat should ndti,
be eliminated from seniors' diets, as it can still prove a valuable energy
source. But seniors should reduce the amount of fat in their diet to combat
their slowing metabolism.
Don't forget about calcium. Calcium is essential tp bone health, and tob, -
little calcium in a senior's diet can increase susceptibility to osteoporosis, -'I'
which weakens the bones and increases the likelihood that a fall can lead to*a
broken bone. For seniors with digestive problems who cannot comfortably '.T
drink milk. consider including non-fat powdered milk in recipes. Also. ,:,]
lactose-free milk can enable people to drink milk and get valuable calcium. -If,,
none of these options work out, consult a physician to discuss calcium
a---- .-s. K
Seniors can improve their golden years by tailoring their diets to ensure optimal health.
