Aileen Wuornos, the

the Interstate in Florida
and shoot her victims af-
ter they pulled off a quiet
road to have sex. She
would then rob them,
take their vehicles and
ditch the cars later. Qne

Wuornos murdered
her last victim in Dixie
Ernie Page III, who
prosecuted the Dixie
County case, .said
Wuornos was arrested
after a man, who had
picked her up from a
.,truck stop, reported the
4 cident. He had heard
about the other murders
and when they got down
the road he realized who
she was.
"He told her he want-
ed to pull off and get
some beer and he gave
ter the money and said,
Ybou run in and get it,"
t'age-said. "As soon as
she got out of that car,

to death."

the murders while in jail,
but later daimed'she had

penalty against Wuornos
in the Dixie County case.
She received a total of six
death sentences for her
crimes and was executed
in 2002..

Heart Matters

. Congratulations Grad-
uates! For many stu-
dents, this week marks
the celebration of a long-
awaited achievement, as
well as the beginning of
a new challenge: "What
will I do with my life?"
Some of you have care-
fully mapped out plans,
while others are still
struggling for answers.
In your search, consider
the words of Jeremiah
6:16: "This is what the
Lord says: "Stand at
the crossroads and look:
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way
is, and walk in it, and
you will find rest for
your souls"
You now stand at one
of the biggest crossroads
of your life. Graduation
is the end of a path that
began years ago as you


Put colorful blooms and a splash of life on
your deck, patio or porch with easy to care for
container gardens. Choose from our beautiful
collection of pots from around the world or
bring your own and let us help you pick out
the perfect combination of plants.
If you want, Randy can pot it up for )ou!
Do you have an area that needs some
landscaping? We'd love to help you choose
the plants for that perfect look. When trying
to figure out how to achieve what you have
in mind the possibilities can be
overwhelming. Bring in .measurements and
pictures if you have them and we can sketch
out something to include your favorite trees
and shrubs.

left Mom and Dad to
climb onto the school
bus and walk into the
classroom on your own.
Now is the time to cele-
brate, with an eye to the
Stand at this cross-
road and look. At a
crossroad, or intersec-
tion, you make your de-
cision about which way
to go based on where
you want to end up.
Consider what you
have learned about life
and about yourself, and
look for the good way
that leads to your fu-
ture. The right path for
living is marked out by
God, but it requires
careful searching to un-
cover. The popular, eas-
ier path is always going
to be offered and it will
be tempting, but know
that it leads to a dead-
end life, when we ig-
nore God's map we lose
our way.
Ask where the good
way is and walk in it.

Once you get a glimpse
of that good way, don't
get frustrated if you
can't see the whole plan
right now, start with one
step, it may be that you
find the directions for
the next step on the way.
Get going, a tiny rudder
can turn a huge ship, but
only if it is moving. Be,
confident that God has a
plan for your life. In
Ephesians 2:10 the Bible
tells us "For we are
God's workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to
do good works, which
God prepared in ad-
vance for us to do."
That word "workman-
ship" also means "mas-
terpiece," one of a kind!
God created you unique-
ly for a specific purpose,
toldo good works. The
kicker is that He has pre-
pared them "in ad-
vance" for you to do.
All we have to do is fol-
low His map to find.
Find rest for your
souls, of all the things I
could hope and pray for

"I thought I was going
to get to cross examine
Ronald Reagan and Ollie
North," he said.
Page tried Geers in
1994. Valverde was. of-
fered a plea deal, since
he had already received
a lengthy sentence in
federal court.
Page said among the
items seized in the case
were more than a ton.of
marijuana, hundreds of
thousands of dollars and
an airplane that was giv-

used by seyeial Florida

years. He will bid that
job farewell at the end of
this month.
Page was asked by for-
'mer state attorney Jerry
Blair to serve on the state
attorney's special prose-
cutions unit early in his
career. As part of the
unit, Page prosecuted
murders and drug traf-

than 20 years.
Page was ,also cross
sworn to serve as an as-
Isistant. U.S. attorney
twice for a drug case
in Taylor County and a
vote-buying case in Dix-

"He was an. excellent
trial attorney," said Blair,
who hired Page. "He
was one of our top attor-

tried hard cases and had
excellent results."
"Ernie has been a very
good prosecutor and a

Submitted by
First Grade Scientists
First grade had a
special guest speaker
to visit and teach the
classes about electrical
safety. Mr. Wyman
Clark from Suwannee
Valley Electric brought
along his two friends
Deon and Leon to
share with all of the
students on how to be
"smart heroes."


He began by explain-
ing how electricity is
generated: by water,
coal, or natural gas at
an energy station.
.Much to his surprise,
the students had read
and studied this in
their science books.
They had seen pictures
of some of the Suwan-
nee Valley repairmen
working at substations.
One of his jobs has
been to teach the men

how to be a safe work-
er. Wearing protective
gear, such as special
gloves, a helmet, and
wearing long sleeves
isn't all the workers
need in order to be a
"safe" worker. They
must be well trained so
they will know how to
handle different situa-
Mr. Clark reminded
us not to climb trees
that are close to power

lines. We should al-
ways stay.away from
trees and power lines
when flying kites. He
suggested open fields,
like the one in front of
our school. This would
be a great place for kite
flying. The children
shook their heads and
agreed, because this
was where we have
flown kites earlier in
the year. He explained
that we should never
touch a tree that might
be lying on a line it a "hot" wire
and we would receive
a shock!
The first grade scien-
tists listened closely
and found it quite in-
terestiig when he ex-
plained that birds don't
get shocked when they
are sitting on a power
line. This is because
they usually sit on only

one of the lines, but if
they slip and one of
their wings hit the oth-
er line then they are
shocked by the electric-
It was interesting to
learn that when our
lights dim several dif-
ferent things could be
happening, such as: a
tree could be on.a line,
a bird or a squirrel may
have hit both lines, or
somebody might have
hit a power line.
Mr. Clark's friends
Deon and Leon showed
the children what
would happen if you
touched a tree that was
laying on a line, if you
flew a kite to close to
power line, or tried to
fix an antenna if it fell
ovei, the electricity
would then go into
your body and shock
you really bad. With

each demonstration,
the children jumped to
actually see what hap-
pens to a person. Mr.
Clark has ah awesome
way of teaching chil-
dren what can happen
if they don't know
what to do. He re-
minded us that a
"smart" hero will: go
tell mom or dad (an
adult), or call 911 if
they are alone, but to
not try to take care- of
the problem yourself.
We learned from Mr.
Clark, Deon, and Leon
that we won't make
their same mistakes.
We will be "smart he-
roes." We appreciate
the time he took to
come and teach all of,
our 1st Grade Scientists
and the wonderful bag
of "goodies"! Thank
you Suwannee Valley
Electric Company!

The Reality About Newspapers

In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented financial challenges. The
economic meltdown and advertising recession have hit our industry hard, But make no mistake about
this: newspaper media print and digital remains strong and will emerge from the current
environment an even stronger multi-platform force. :.

Here is the reality about newspapers today:

1. Myth: No one reads newspapers anymore.

Reality: More than 104 million adults read a print newspaper every day, more than 115 million
on Sunday. That's more people than watch the Super Bowl (94 million), American Idol (23
million) or that typically watch the late local news (65 million).

2. Myth: Young people no longer read newspapers.

Reality: 61 percent of 18-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds read a newspaper in an average week and
65 percent of them read a newspaper or visited a newspaper website in the past week.

3. Myth: Newspaper readership is tanking.

Reality: Average weekday newspaper readership declined a mere 1.8 percent between 2007 and
2008, and about 7 percent since its peak in 2002. Compare that to the 10 percent decline seen in the
prime time TV audience in 2007 alone. Meanwhile, newspapers' Web audience has grown nearly
75 percent since 2004, to 73 million unique visitors a month.

4. Myth: Many newspapers are going out of business.

Reality: Newspapers, as individual businesses, by and large remain profitable enterprises -
with operating margins that Wall Street analysts estimate will generally average in the low to
mid teens during 2009. While that may be down from historical highs, such margins would be
the envy of many other industries today. As consultant John Morton said in a recent American
Journalism Review article, "Overall, the beleaguered newspaper industry's financial health
has been weakened but remains healthy by most measures. In this environment, that is an

5. Myth: Newspaper advertising doesn't work.

Reality: Google's own research shows that 56 percent of consumers researched or purchased
products they saw in a newspaper. Google also says that newspaper advertising reinforces online
ads: 52 percent are more likely to buy products if they see it in the paper.

6. Myth: There are no creative options in newspapers,

Reality: Newspaper advertising options have exploded and now include shape and polybag ads,
post-it notes, "we prints,' shingle spadeas, scented ads, taste-it ads, glow-in-the-dark, belly bands
and temporary tattoos, as well as event and database marketing, behavioral targeting, e-mail
blasts, e-newsletters and more.

7. Myth: If newspapers dose, yopu will still be able to get news from other sources.

Reality: Newspapers make a larger investment in journalism than any other medium. Most of
the information you read from "aggregators" and other media originated with newspapers. No
amount of effort from local bloggers, non-profit news entities or TV news sources could match
the depth and breadth ofnewspaper-produced content.

This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing
themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences with a variety of products, and delivering those
audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.

Memorial Week Special

,We Believe

N in our

We believe in our military. Regardless of our belief; whether you think;
we should fight for the freedoms we are allowed in this country or not, we
can all agree that the men and women who chose to fight for us are brave
and strong. I have an older brother who serves in our "Armed Forces" and I
know firsthand the love he has for this country. I have seen his struggles of
leaving behind the ones he loves to fight for people he doesn't even know.

Sadly to say, I know how the family members left behind suffer as well. I
have seen the spouses and children go without needed items. The challenges
of keeping the faMiily going while that spouse is away. It's not easy. So many
times we pass these people by and we see the smile upon their faces yet they
are hurting inside. They don't complain about what they don't have or could
have had; because they believe in what their spouse is doing and support
them sell.

Every military person that I have had the opportunity to administer dental
treatment to has been a privilege and honor. I love to see them come into our,
office. wearing their pressed uniforms, their awards and decorations proudly
displayed above their left breast pocket. You don't find them with their heads
held low or their shoulders bending in discouragement. Instead you see a
proud upright solider, that is polite and appreciative despite the obstacles that
they may face. With a big smile and out stretched hand. I always thank
him/her for serving on in our great military. Because as I said before, I know
the sacrifices they make daily to protect each and every American.

So the next time you see someone serving in the military or has served at one
time, give them a big smile and a sincere "Thank You"

Community asked to help
animal shelter win
$1 million makeover
Suwannee County Animal Shelter could be the recipi-
ent of a $1 million shelter makeover. All that is required
is registration at Please use
zip code of 32062 for the shelter when registering. Partic-
ipation by all area residents is crucial, as we have about
three weeks to accumulate enough points to be in the top
20. Fifty points are immediately accumulated just by reg-
istering, and additional participation in various activities
on site will add more points.
There are no requirements by the public other than just
registering and your support. We can't stress,enough the
importance of the community's support. A shelter
makeover could mean saving the lives of many stray ani-
mals here in Suwannee County.
