long as one year for this case to go to
trial, due to the large number of coun-

The Lafayette Environmen-
tal Education 4-H group
learned a great deal from
the Florida Division of
Forestry through various
activities this summer. A visit to the -
Allen Mill Pond allowed 4-Hers to
learn about tree identification, spring
formation and other environmental is-,
sues. A picnic lunch at Blue Springs
gave the kids an opportunity to relax
and explore more of our local springs.
Representatives from the Lafayette Di-
vision of Forestry provided classroom
teaching, demonstrated tree staking
and played an educational game with
the group.
All of these activities were used to
provide education on what trees need

Heart Matters


picture how your life
(not tp mention those
around you) would im-
prove?
When I was a little
girl, thumb-sucking was
my vice, and no matter
what my mom tried,
nothing seemed to make
that thumnb less appeal-
ing, until I was about to
start -school. I was all
pumped about heading
out into the big-girl
world of kindergarten
when my older brother
casually mentioned to
me that thumb sucking
was only for babies that
were not ready for
school. I panicked!
Would I be sent home?
Would I never learn to
read or need school
clothes? I decided this
was far too important,
(still not much I would-


n't give up for a new out-
fit or a good book), the
habit was broken! The
point is, I was about to
be exposed, which seems
like the worst thing ever,
but really is the door to
victory over any bad
habit.
When we keep our
bad habits hidden, we
can more easily deny
their harmful effects, and
justify our actions in our
own minds. However,
once they are exposed,
we can see the truth
more clearly, as if they
are under a spotlight.
Then we can weigh out
the cost and decide to
take action. Account-
ability is a great tool to
utilize when our at-
tempts to break a bad
habit continue to fail. It
is defined as a willing-


ness to accept responsi-
bility or to account for
one's actions to another;
to answer to another.
In Ephesians 5:21, the
Bible encourages us to
"be subject to one another
in the fear of Christ." To
"be subject" indicates a
willingness to answer to
another for your behav-w
ior, and gives them the
authority to speak hon-
estly with you about
what they observe. This
can come in the form of
one friend or family
member, or a group of
like-minded fellow strug-
glers. The most impor-
tant quality to look for is
a sincere desire on their
part for your success,
enough to say the 'hard
things when you need to
hear them and to contin-
ually encourage you to
keep going.
Picture yourself free of
that bad habit, and com-
mit yourself to an ac-
countability partner or
group, because your
heart matters!
Tell us what you think,
what do you think is the
most common bad habit
and/or what bad habit
have you overcome?

Land DaConceicao exchange vows


Laura Keating Land,
daughter of Judge and
Mrs. Harlow 1-1. Land, Jr.
of Mayo, Florida became
the bride of Mr. Daniel
DaConceicao, son of Mr.
and Mrs. George DaCon-
ceicao of Palm Coast,
Florida on Saturday the
21st of February, 2009.
The 4:30 p.m. beach wed-
ding was held at Car-
louel Yacht Club, Clear-
water, Florida and was
officiated by the Rev-
erend Canon Gary Mar-
shall, Anglican Priest of
Orlando, Florida.
The bride is the grand-
daughter of the late Har-
low and Atha Land of
Mayo, Florida and the
late Senator W.
Broughton and Louise
Johnston of Princeton,
West Virginia. The
groom is the grandson of
Mr. and Mrs. Tomas
Goncalves of Murtosa,
Portugal and the late Mr.
Jose DaConceicao and
Mrs. Rosa Daconceicao
of Alcaria, Portugal.
Prior to the actual cere-
mony, the warming of
the rings was presented
by Mr. Kyle Shaw, Esq.
and Mrs. Darica H. Land.
An Irish tradition, the
rings were passed to
each person attending
the double ring celebra-
tion for their prayers and
wishes for the couple be-
fore the formal exchange
of rings took place. The
rings therefore, were not
only gifts from the bride
* and groom to each other,
but were given with the
love, support and wis-
dom of all present. The
rings were attached to a
satin ring pillow covered
in the bride's mother's
wedding veil.
Master Garrison
Broughton Land,
nephew of the bride es-
corted the Mother of the
Bride.


Proudly escorted by
her father, and given in
marriage by her family,
the bride was attired in
an elegant gown custom
designed by Melissa
Sweet. The gown was a
full organza gown with
a sweetheart neckline
and draped waist. It was
embellished with hand-
made French lace ac-
cents. The flowing
cathedral veil compli-
mented the gown with
the same lace embellish-
ments.

of Table 6 Productions,

The Sunset Dinner


Dance Reception was
held in the Yacht Club
which was beautifully
decorated following the
sunset color theme of the
wedding. The CHI
Omega tradition of a
Candle Pass was incor-
porated in the reception
along with the bouquet
and garter toss and mem-
orable toasts.
The wedding cake was
a four-tiered creation by
Chef Michael of 'Let
Them Eat Cake' of Tamn-
pa. The tiers included a(
Fresier with fresh straw-
berries, carrot cake and
Boston cream cakes. It
was decorated with intri-
cate scrolling, each tierk
designed differently. The'

tom logo was displayed
in golden chocolate and
circus roses made the
perfect accents to the
ivory butter cream cake.
A dessert and coffee bar

in the evening.

On July 24, 2009, the
new Federal minimum
wage of $7.25 per hour
replaced Florida's cur-
rent rate of $7.21 per
hour. Federal law re-
quires employers to pay
the higher minimum
wage, .whether federal or
state. The minimum
wage applies to all em-
ployees in the state who
are covered by the feder-
al minimum wage.
Florida law requires
the Agency for Work-
force Innovation to cal-
culate a new minimum
wage each year on Sep-
tember 30, based on the
,Consumer Price Index.
If that calculation is
higher than the federal
rate, the state's rate
would then take effect
the following January.
The minimum wage is
different for tipped em-
ployees. Florida's cur-
rent rate is $4.19 per
hour plus tips and will
increase to $4.23 on July
24th with the new feder-
al minimum wage.
Employees who are
entitled to receive mini-
'mum wage but are not
paid the minimum wage
may bring a civil action
against the employer or
any person violating
Florida's minimum wage
law. The Florida Attor-
ney General may also
take action to enforce the
minimum wage.
Florida Statutes re-
quire employers who
must pay their employ-

Ramblings from the


* N*>


0. A. Winburn, Jr.

That building that had
once housed Mr. Fol-
som's filling station later
became the new location
for Melton's grocery. A
large portion of that
property was open, al-
lowing automobiles to
drive in for service. Mr.
Melton closed it all in
and made a nice place
for his grocery business.
Mr. Melton's previous
location across the street
in the old bank building
was later occupied by
Daryl West, a newcomer
to Mayo. Mr. West oper-
ated a drug store there
for a good many years
and when Mr. Melton
closed the grocery store,
Mr. West moved his
business across the street
into that building. Mr.
West was a friend to all
who knew him and a
Christian man dedicated
to helping others.
I believe Mr. West
came to Mayo to fill a
vacancy in the pharmacy
business created by the
demise of Birchfield's
pharmacy. Mr. Birch-
field had apparently fall-
en on hafd times and
had left town and Mayo
lost two outstanding cit-
izens. I believe he had
relocated to Tallahassee
and he and his wife both
found employment
there.
Mrs. Birchfield was a
school teacher and had
been one of my teachers
at Lafayette High
School. She was both ad-
mired and respected as a
genteel lady and as a
teacher of the highest
quality. It was later ru-
mored that an unidenti-
fied female employee at
Mr. Birchfield's store in
Mayo had somehow
been a factor in the fail-
ure of his business. I was
serving in the USAF dur-
ing that time and the na-
.ture of that was never
made public to my
knowledge.
Mr. Birchfield's oldest
son, Bill Jr. was a year or
two younger than me
and we were in a similar
rut around Mayo -as
youngsters. Bill devel-
oped a kindred relation-
ship with his friend Ken-
neth Edwards who lived
up the street. Kenny and
his older brother, Robert
delivered the Times
Union in Mayo on their

bicycles before school
and all those other days
as well. Both hard work-
ing boys, those two.
A note here about
Robert. I le was a student
at the U of F when I be-
gan there in the 'fall of
1950 as a freshman. 1
asked him if 1 could
catch a ride with him
back to Gainesville on
the Sunday before 1 was
to begin classes and he
obliged and came by and
helped me load my
trunk in his car and
dropped me off at my
appointed place which
at that time was an
Army barracks where
the O-dome now sits.
Robert went into the le-
gal profession' and has
since retired as a Judge
in Polk county.
Bill was seen going
along as Kenneth put in
some time after school
and on Saturdays at a
farm there at the
Buckville intersection he
had acquired as a result
of his uncle Sid's posi-
tion as Clerk of The
Court. Knowing the
kind of man Sid was, I
imagine he willingly as-
sisted him somewhat in
that acquisition. Ken-
neth's older brother,
Robert may also have
been instrumental in
helping him acquire that
property. Robert had be-
come a lawyer by that
time and would have
been in a position to be
of some financial assis-
tance if necessary, or he
may have been a co-
owner. I knew the previ-
ous owners of that prop-
erty, Henry Platt and his
boys, H. J., Edward (Pee,
wee) and Melvin. Ken-
neth added more
acreage and developed
that place into a splen-
did and profitable oper-
ation before his untimely
passing and his son con-


tinues in that tradition
today.
Bill and I crossed
paths a little later as stu-
dents at the University
of Florida after complet-
ing our military obliga-
tion. I use the term
"obligation" because it
seems appropriate, be-
ing that all able bodied
young men have an
obligation to answer the
call in time of need to do
their part in keeping this
country free. I know that
some don't feel this way
and there are those able
to serve who found
ways to avoid that duty
but I don't envy them. I
wouldn't go so far as to
deny them the freedom
that other citizens enjoy
here in this country,
freedom paid for in
blood and sacrifice of
those who served. I ex-
pect looking, at them-
selves in the mirror each
day is enough. Maybe
we should pity them. I
doubt that there would
be any of that sort found
here in Lafayette County
where patriotism has al-
ways flourished.
There was a little
spoof, all in good, clean,
fun about Bill that got
some playing time along
then. He and Irwin Land
were living at the CLO
house across the street
from the campus and
Bill had made friends
with one or twd of the
employees that worked
in food service there.
One little lady apparent-
ly made it known that
she was in need of some
paint to complete an im-
provement project at her
home. Fortunately for
her, her newly made
friend, Bill, knew of just
such a product stored
there in the CLO house
and initiated a single
party loan of that paint
and made it available to


past....
that little lady. As the
story goes, Bill got pref-
erential treatment
around the kitchen from
then on.
I heard that Irwin
went on to become a
School Superintendent
somewhere out in the
"Panhandle." Bill later
became a prominent at-
torney in Jacksonville
where he also served a
couple of terms in the
Florida State Legislature
as one of the Representa-
tives from Duval Coun-
ty. I once inquired of Bill
why he had chosen not
to seek re-election to that
post after those two
terms and he told me
that it took too much
time away from his law
practice. I had somehow
come to envision him as
someday becoming gov-
ernor of this great state
had he made the choice
to remain in politics. He
possessed all the qualifi-
cations plus that down
home charm that made
him so popular. There
were two other boys in
that family, Ben and a
younger one whose
name I do not recall and
I'm sure that they too
have made their mark in
the world.
After many years of
dedicated service to the
folks of Mayo and sur-
rounding area, Mr. West
died suddenly. His un-
timely death left a void
in the community not to
be easily filled and left
the Mayo Baptist church
in need of an accom-
plished pianist.
To the south, on the
west side, going along
the "old salt road" to
Deadman's Bay in the
block directly behind
Mr. Folsom's was Mrs.
Radfords restaurant and
a small building that
housed Dr. Green's of-
fice.....to be continued.

On a radio program
the audience was re-
minded that a cure has
not yet been discovered
for HIV/AIDS. But, I
mused, has anyone
thought about "absti-
nence?" Abstinence
might not help those
with the disease but
wouldn't it eventually
rid the world of the dis-
ease?
The Bible admonishes,
"For this is the will of
God, even your sanctifi-
cation, that ye should
abstain from fornication:
That every one of you
should know how to
posses his vessel in sanc-
tification and honour;" (I
Thessaloriians 4:3,4). It is
God's will that you keep


your body separated
unto honor (keep your
body pure), not giving
into lusts of the flesh!
Abstinence is the an-
swer but men are more
interested in their "FUN'
than in a cure! In a hedo-
nistic culture there is a
lack of desire to put the
antidote in place. There
must be a change (II
Corinthians 5:17).
According to the Cen-
ter for Disease Control
four of the top five most
commonly reported in-
fectious diseases in 2002
were sexually transmit-
ted diseases (STD's). -
Chlamydia (834,555),
.gonorrhea (351,852),
AIDS (42,264) and non
congenital syphilis
(32,459). A bacterial in-
fection, salmonellosis
(44,264), often transmit-
ted from food, is insert-
ed in the middle. All the
"FUN" is not without a
high price!
You can't improve on
God's Word. If
HIV/AIDS is to be elim-
inated the Bible must be
heeded "...if thou wilt
diligently hearken to the
voice of the Lord thy
God...I will put none of
these diseases upon
thee..." (Exodus 15:26).

Charlie Houder honored by

Society of American Foresters


Charlie Houder, of the
Suwannee River Water
Management District
(District), recently was
selected as a fellow in the
Society of American
Foresters. Only five per-
cent of the Society's
members are awarded
the distinction.
Houder was nominat-
ed for the title by his
peers for outstanding
service to the Society and
to the profession of
forestry.
"I have spent my entire
adult life practicing
forestry in the South-
east," said Houder. "It's
an incredible honor to be
recognized by my peers."
Houder has provided
numerous contributions
to the forestry profession
over the years. During
his time at the District he
has helped develop the
conservation easement
program and assisted the
District in becoming the
first public agency to be
certified under the Sus-
tainable Forestry Initia-
tive.


"Charlie Houder is the
premier land manager in
Florida," said David Still,
District executive direc-
tor. "He has taken the
District's programs to a
higher level and set the
bar for other public agen-
cies to achieve. I have en-
joyed working with and
learning from Charlie."
Houder, a certified
forester, is a deputy exec-
utive director at the Dis-
trict and the director of
the Department of Laid
Acquisition and Manage-
ment. The department
oversees purchases of
land and conservation
easements for the pur-
pose of water conserva-
tion. With few excep-
tions, all of the lands ac-
quired are also open for
public recreation.
Houder has been a
member of the Society
for 32 years, during
which time he has held
numerous offices. He
will be honored at the
Society's National Con-
vention in Orlando later
this year.

National School


Lunch and Breakfast

programs


Lafayette District Schools an-
nounces its policy for free and re-
duced price meals for students under
the

NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH
AND BREAKFAST PROGRAMS.

any interested person may review a
copy of the policy by contacting Joey
Pearson at 363 NE Crawford Street or
call 386-294-1351.
Household size and income criteria
will be used to determine eligibility.
These criteria can be found on the sec-
ond page of this document. Children
from families whose income is at or
below the levels shown may be eligi-
ble for Free or Reduced price meals.
An application can not be approved
unless it contains complete eligibility
information. Once approved, meal
benefits are good for an entire year.
You need not notify the organization
of changes in income and household
size.
Application forms are being sent to
all homes with a letter to parents or
guardians. To apply for Free or Re-
duced Price meals, households must
complete the application and return it
to the school. Additional copies are
available at the principal's office in
each school. The information provid-
ed on the application will be used for
the purpose of determining eligibility
and may be verified at any time dur-
ing the school year. Applications may
be submitted at any time during the
year.
Households that receive Food
Stamps or TANF (Temporary Assis-
tance for Needy Families) are re-
quired to list on the application only
the child's name, Food Stamp/TANF
case number, and signature of adult
household member.
Foster children will receive benefits
(i.e., free, reduced-price, or paid)
based on the child's personal income
regardless of the income of the house-
hold.

ly. Additionally, a housing allowance
that is part of the military Housing
Privatization Initiative is not to be in-
cluded as income.
All other households must provide

and how often the income is received
by each household member;
Signature of an adult household
member certifying the information
provided is correct; and
Social security number of the
adult signing the application or the
word "NONE" for this household
member if he or she does not have a
social security number.
If a household member becomes
unemployed or if the household size
changes, the school should be contact-
ed. Children of parents or guardians
who become unemployed should also
contact the school. Such changes may
make the student eligible for reduced
price or free meals if the household
income falls at or below the levels
shown below.
Under the provisions of the Free or
Reduced meal policy Joey
Pearson/Director of Support Services
will review applications and deter-
mine eligibility. If a parent or
guardian is dissatisfied with the rul-
ing of the official, he or she may wish
to discuss the decision with the deter-
mining official on an informal basis. If
the parent wishes to make a formal
appeal, he or she may make a request
either orally or in writing to:
Thomas Lashley
363 NE Crawford Street or call 386-
294-1351.
Unless indicated otherwise on the
application, the information on the
Free and Reduced Price Meal applica-
tion may be used by the school sys-
tem in determining eligibility for oth-
er educational programs.
To determine annual income:

John Hewett fellow
Rotarian, presented a
lively, entertaining, yet
sadly realistic, program
at the weekly meeting,
concerning various is-
sues effecting the dras-
tic downturn in our
economy.
Hewett highlighted
some of the issues that
he feels strongly about
such as the Natural En-
ergy Policy, "making all
,parties happy," and as
Hewett commented
that is just not possible.
He spoke of the rate
hick in energy costs,
which is devastating to
all, but he also related
some of the reasons be-
hind it.
Another issue that
was discussed was the
housing issue in our
state and the fact that
one in every 33 homes
in Florida, are being
foreclosed. On a slight-
ly positive note he
mentioned that in our
county, we are fortu-
nate in some of these
areas but all of us are
being affected in one
way or another.
Agriculture was an-
other area of concern
brought up by Hewett,
and sipce agriculture is
a very important indus-


iere is the


m, and how


will we go?


try in this area, it is a
huge deal. He said he
honestly feels that
farming is one of the
riskiest businesses of
all. Costs in production
of farming of all types
has risen tremendous-
ly, causing a great
hardship on the local
farmers. And as
Hewett relayed, what
effects the farmer, trick-
les down to every one
of us.
Another issue that
was very passionately
discussed by Hewett
were concerns with
Healthcare and its
abuse. An example that
he gave was the emer-
gency rooms which are
filled with "non-emer-
gency" patients, thus
making it almost im-
possible, for folks who
have a real "emer-
gency" to be helped,
and he added "a large
percentage of those in
the emergency rooms
waitihg to be seen,
have no health insur-
ance at all. "
Along with the abuse
of the healthcare sys-
tem, Hewett mentioned
other areas of our gov-
ernmental services that
are being abused such
as welfare, food
stamps, WIC, free
housing, free lunches,


John Hewett talks about
the downturn In our econo-
my.

free tutoring, etc., etc.
But, he reminded those
in attendance that he .
was speaking of those
who abuse the system,
NOT those who truly
are in need, and "yes.
there are many who
truly do need help, but
there are lots more who
know how to work and
abuse the system," stat-
ed Hewett.
According to Hewett
each of us needs to be
aware of what is going
on and do what we can
about it. What can you
do? Call your local rep-
resentatives, voice your
.opinions, and concerns.
Several phone num-
bers are listed below
for those concerned cit-
izens who wish to help;
make a difference.

with a learning disabili-
ty, going back to school
is often difficult. Cou-
pled with the typical
fears of fitting in social-
ly, students with learn-
ing disabilities have the
additional fear of han-
dling their coursework
and excelling in the
classroom in spite of
their learning disabili-
ty.
What's more, in such
cases, students might
be silently battling an
undiagnosed learning
disability. According to
the Learning Disabili-
ties Association of
America (LDAA),
many students with
learning disabilities are
of average or above av-
erage intelligence.
While learning disabili-
ties have no cure, with
support and interven-
tion, many people with
learning disabilities
have gone on to realize
their full potential.
Of course, the first
step in overcoming a
learning disability is
recognizing its pres-
ence. Certain learning
disabilities, such as
dyslexia, are widely
known to parents and
educators alike and can
be easier to detect.
However, others, such
as Central Auditory
Processing Disorders
(CAPD), can prove to
be more of a mystery.
Often part of another
learning disability,
CAPD is a physical
hearing impairment,
one that affects a per-
son's ability to separate
a spoken message from
background informa-
tion. In certain in-
stances, a person with
CAPD might be asked
one question but an-
swer another.
Such confusion can
make communication,
be it with teachers or
fellow students, very
difficult, and negative-
ly influence a student's
education. That places
a greater responsibility
.on the parents and ed-
ucators to recognize
possible symptoms of
CAPD. Those symp-
toms can include:
processing thoughts
and ideas slowly and
difficulty explaining
them
confused by figura-
tive language, such as
similes and metaphors,
or misunderstanding
puns and jokes because
words are taken too lit-
erally


misspelling or mis-
pronouncing similar
sounding words, or con-
fusing like-sounding
words, such as
celery / salary,
belt/built, etc.
easily and frequently
distracted by back-
ground noises
difficulty focusing or
remembering presenta-
tions or lectures
It's important for par-
ents, teachers and, per-
haps most importantly,
students to recognize
that people with diag-
nosed learning disabili-
ties often excel in the
classroom with a few
adjustments. For people
with CAPD, parents and
educators are integral in
ensuring they make the
most of their talents and
intellect.'
Show rather than ex-
plain: Because students
with a CAPD can expe-
rience difficulty pro-
cessing language, it is
often easier for them to
grasp a concept if they
see it unfold rather than
have that concept sim-
ply explained to them.
Reduce directions:
The longer a spoken di-
rection is, the more like-
ly a student with CAPD
is to have those direc-
tions drowned out by
background noises.
Keep directions short,
or space them out to
lessen the amount the
student has to process
all at once. In addition,
consider rewording di-
rections that could po-
tentially prove confus-
ing.
* Allow more time for
a response: A student
with CAPD might take
longer to process a
'question and decipher
what was asked. Allow
such students more time
to give their response.
Use supplementary
materials: Educators can
use things such as hand-
outs to supplement a
,lecture that a student
with CAPD might have
trouble focusing on or
remembering.
*. Vary pitch and tone
of voice: Place a greater
emphasis on key words
in an effort to aid a stu-
dent's memory of im-
portant points.
Learning disabilities
are a part of many stu-
dents' lives. However, as
students across the na-
tion continue to prove
each day, with proper
support and intervention
learning disabilities can
be overcome.

RIGHTS OF AFFECTED PARTIES
Under this intent to issue, the permit is
hereby granted subject to the applicant's
compliance with any requirement in this
intent to publish notice of this intent in a
newspaper of general circulation and to .
provide proof of such publication in accor-
dance with section'50.051 of the Florida
Statutes. This action is final and effective
on the date filed with the Clerk of the De-
partment unless a sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is timely filed un-
der sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes as provided below. If a
sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed, this Intent to Issue
automatically becomes only proposed
agency action on the application, subject
to the result of the administrative review
process. Therefore, on the filing of a time-
ly and sufficient petition, this action will
not be final and effective until further or-
der of the Department. When proof of
publication is provided, If required by this
Intent, and If a sufficient petition is not
timely filed, the permit will be issued as a
ministerial action. Because an adminis-
trative hearing may result in the reversal
or substantial modification of this action,
the applicant is advised not to commence
construction or olher activities until the
deadlines noted below, for filing a petition
for an administrative hearing or request
for an extension of time, have expired and
until the permit has been executed and
delivered. Mediation is not available.


A person whose substantial Interests are
affected by the Department's action may
petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutls, The pell-
lion must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) Inhr the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Commonwoalth
Boulevard, Maill Station 35, Tallahnssoe,
Florldi 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-1 10.106(4) of theli Florida
Adminlshiatlve Code, a person whose
substantial Interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an
extension of time to file a petition for an
administrative hearing. The Department
may, for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Requests
for extension of time must be filed with the
Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mall Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable dead-
line. A timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running of the time period for
filing a petition until the request is acted
upon. If a request Is filed late, the De-
partment may still grant it upon a motion
by the requesting party showing that the
failure to file a request for an extension of
time before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be affect-
ed by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to inter-
vene in the proceeding. Intervention will
be permitted only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a mo-
lion In compliance with rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administrative Code.
In accordance with rule 62-110.106(3),
petitions for an administrative hearing by
the applicant must be filed within 21 days
of receipt of this written notice. Petitions
filed by any persons other than the appli-
cant, and other than those entitled to writ-
ten notice under subsection 120.60(3) of
the Florida Statutes must be filed within
21 days of publication of the notice or
within 21 days of receipt of the written no-
tice, whichever occurs first. Under sub-
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked the
Department for notice of agency action
may file a petition within 21 days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

'Baby Bailea' murder trial begins


Continued From Page I A

the couple's other child, 2-year-old
Thomas, were in the care of Jeffrey,
Rebecca Ray said. No other adults
were present.
Jacobsen speculated that taking
care of Bailea at night, so Rebecca
could sleep, and taking care of the
children during the day caused Jef-
frey Ray to become greatly stressed,
resulting in his loss of control.
The defense countered with a dif-
ferent version of events during
opening statements. Around noon
the same day, Jeffrey Ray was
watching NASCAR, tending to
Thomas and feeding Bailea when he
realized he had fed her too much
formula. Next, she threw up the for-
mula and stopped breathing, ac-
cording to defense attorney David
Collins. It was then, said Collins,
that Jeffrey Ray called 911.
However, Jacobsen says state-
ments made by Jeffery that day and
Bailea's injuries are not consistent
with that story.
Detective John Young was captain
of the Lafayette County Sheriff's Of-
fice on March 20, 2006. Young exam-


ined a milky liquid that was spilt on
a chair in the mobile home where
the Ray's lived. The defense claims
that this was the formula that Jeffrey
claims Bailea threw up. However,
Young says he cannot be sure what
the substance was, but he's relative-
ly sure it did not smell like vomit,
but rather spilt milk. He said he
should know, being a father of two.
Young testified that he also spoke
with Jeffrey Ray as Bailea was being
life flighted to Shands UF in
Gainesville.
"He (Jeffrey Ray) was quiet, he
wasn't saying too much," said -
Young. "He had no tears. He wasn't
showing any emotion at all. He just
said something like, 'Thomas has
never been a moment's trouble, but
this one has been nothing but prob-
lems since the day she was born.'"
Rebecca Ray, however, described
her husband as distraught the day
Bailea died. She says he was so up-
set that she had to calm him down
in order to get information about
what had happened.
"He was very upset," she testified
Tuesday as her eyes filled with tears
behind glasses.


At the trial Tuesday, Jeffrey Ray
sat unemotional as Bailea's autopsy
photos were presented and his wife
recounted the moment she learned
of her daughter's death. "I did not
know until I got to Shands," Rebecca
said in a broken voice.
Collins says it was baking soda
intoxication that caused Bailea's
death, which he says was acciden-
tal, and not violent action by Jef-
frey Ray. He told the jury Tuesday
that Rebecca's mother, who often
baby-sat Bailea, and Jeffrey Ray all
administered large amounts of
baking soda mixed with water and
sugar to ease Bailea's upset stom-
ach and thereby unwittingly
harmed her. Collins says the bak-
ing soda caused shrinkage of the
brain, which, in turn, brought on
the extensive bleeding in the brain
that caused Bailea to stop breath-
ing. When Jeffrey realized Bailea
was not breathing, he "overreacted"
and "patted" her too hard on the
back as a form of CPR, breaking
her ribs. Collins said the infant's
condition made her more suscepti-
ble to brain damage.
"I find it hard to believe," Dr. Va-


lerie Rat), medical examiner for
Lafayette County and an expert in
the field of forensic pathology, said
when Collins asked her if Bailea's
injuries could have been caused by
Jeffrey Ray's "patting" her on the
back.
"Anything is possible, but it is not
probable," said Rao. She added that
there was "no evidence of sodium
intoxication.' This child's brain was
not shrunken at all."
Rao called Bailea's brain injury
was "inflicted" and not accidental.
"Bailea's injuries were consistent
with being shaken hard and then
thrown on a bed or against some-
thing hard, said Rao.
Rao said Bailea's cause of death
was "a closed head injury" and that
"her stomach was empty" and
showed no signs of formula.
Testimony is expected to continue
at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Prosecutors
told Judge David Fina on Tuesday
afternoon that their first witness of
the day will be an ophthalmologist
from Miami who examined Bailea's
badly damaged eyes. The trial is ex-
pected to continue until Thursday or
Friday.

most exciting (and
scary) was the live burn
they were able to watch.
Prior to the burn, mem-

safety techniques.
The Forestry officials

'Heel' and Pamper Your Feet
Millions of dollars are spent every year by women and men who want to pafrth
their feet. While the pedicure has evolved into a spa treatment in recent years.
really has its roots as a medical procedure designed to care for ailing feet. ,.,
Although a pedicure Is a popular beauty treatment, there are still many whoa'l'
reticent to put their feet in someone else's hands. Concerned about sanwy
procedures at a spa or embarrassment about the condition of their feet leads
many Individuals to seek out home treatment options that are convenient, effective
and affordable. So at-home spa treatments have become popular.
Cracked? dry heels is one condition that can cause embarrassment and ev,
pain. In many cases, this common problem is caused by dry skin, the presenc6.pf.
.calluses and prolonged pressure on the heel, particularly for people with a job tt*
requires a lot of standing. People with severely dry heels have been knowrl4to
wear through pantyhose or socks, and may experience cracking so advanced that1
heels ache or bleed.
It may not be necessary to visit a spa or podiatrist to treat cracked heels. The
Heeltastic"r soothing balm, in a convenient application stick, is the newest product
for your at-home foot therapy routine. It is formulated for chronically dry'and
cracked skin. The balm penetrates deep into the heel with Neem and Karanja oilst
imported from India, as well as skin moisturizers and nutrients that proltbt
healthy skin. Gentle enough to use several times a day, feet feel smoother and:
softer after just days of use. To learn more, visit www.heeltastlc.com.
Those who want to take additional steps to promote foot health and an attractive
appearance should consider these additional foot care lips:
If you do have pedicures at a salon, it is a wise investment to purchase your own
tools so you are ensured they are sanitized and safe.
Wash and soak your feel daily for cleanliness and be careful to rinse off all soap,
especially between toes
When clipping toenails, do so straight across, to prevent the formation of ingrown
toenails. Do so after a bath or shower so that the nails will be soft and easier to
cut.
Wear shoes and socks that fit correctly. Otherwise you risk corns and calluses,
which can be painful and unsightly. Limit the use of high heels, which.,put
unnatural pressure on the balls of the feet.
If you frequent a gym, locker room or public pool, do not walk around barefoot'.-!
use a pair of sandals or tlip-flops. This protects your feet from bacteria or fungus:
that may be present on the floor. '.
Regularly slough ofl dead skin that forms on the feet with a pumice stone, ""
something more convenient like the PedEgg". "
"Walk around the home in bare feet frequently. It stretches out the tendons
laments of the fool and promotes circulation.
If you work on your feet or spend long hours standing, take frequent breaks'
elevate the feet to prevent cracked heels or other foot pain. .
Enlist the help of a partner for a good foot massage every once In,.a w rh"
product as simple as mineral oil can be used as the massage lubricant,.
if you are a diabetic, foot care is essential. Regularly Inspect your fa&ef f
cuts, blisters or calluses. Consult with a podiatrist for treatment.' "

Fram' s


story


D)elores went to Mercer University in
Macon, Georgia, but didn't finish because
she met this strapping lad named August
Kilpatrick. He offered her a ride home,
but she refused to get in the car, so she
rode on the running board.


Dowling Park's Delores Kilpatrick, through the eyes of her grandson


By Addam Kilpatrick
A little country girl living in Georgia never
dreamed that one day she would become a
world traveler racking up so many frequent
flyer miles that she could go anywhere and did. Or, that
she would become an award-winning writer and
nationally recognized. There is such a woman, Delores
Kilpatrick, my grandmother. Or, as I call her, Fram.
She was born March 19, 1930 in Atlanta, Georgia, not
in a hospital, but at her grandmother's house. She is the
second oldest of nine children born to Oscar and Mary
Katherine Gardner. Her older brother, Edward, was her
idol and she adored him. He was a genius building wire
tape recorders and improving the cotton gin, for which
he still holds patents. He even built a working Ferris
wheel that was over 20 feet tall. He and his new bride
died when his airplane crashed on Christmas Eve 1952.
The family lived in a house with no running water and
no plumbing. They got their water from a well and had a
nice two-seater outhouse. It was nice to have company
on some of those dark and stormy nights. Her father
worked for Carrier Air Conditioning so the family
moved for three months at a time, but always seemed to
make their way back to Georgia. They went to the same
school as their mother and oddly enough Delores had the
same teacher that her mother had, Mrs. Welch. Mrs.
Welch came from the old school and put her makeup on
with two rosy circles on her cheeks. Delores was very
bright and studious and graduated from Fulton County
High School as valedictorian.
She went to Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, but
didn't finish because she met this strapping lad named
August Kilpatrick. He offered her a ride home, but she
refused to get in the car, so she rode on the running
board. They took their wedding vows in 1949 at
Orchard Knob Baptist Church, a church her granddaddy
had started and built. Augie Was the ripe old age of 26
while Delores was a still blossoming flower of 19.
Living in Atlanta the family congregated at Mother
Too's house. Mother Too was her grandmother and was
called Mother Too because she refused to be called
grandmother. Mother Too was a grand lady who
weighed roughly three hundred pounds and could cook
like the dickens. There were no hotels so company
stayed with the family. It was very family oriented.
There were lots of people at the table.
From Georgia, Augie and Delores went to Louisville,
Kentucky where Augie attended seminary to be a Baptist
preacher. In the summers, they would stay in DuPont,
Indiana. For their first anniversary, the couple had a
beautiful baby, whom they named Mary Diane, my mom.
A baby followed for the next two anniversaries, another
girl and then a boy. After four years they returned to
Georgia where the last girl was born.
From Kentucky they went to Milledgeville, Georgia
where the couple pastored a church. Milledgeville was

in 1961. Photo: Submitted


the site of the state mental hospital, which made for lots
of family jokes about the church. They moved back to
the Atlanta area in a housing project called Blair Village.
They pastored another church there and had the most
baptisms in the whole state of Georgia that year.
Augie decided to be a missionary, so the family moved
to Fort Worth, Texas for more seminary training. Augie
joined the Air Force as a chaplain, but the waiting list
was long. Augie made one call to the Chief of the Air
Force and was bumped to the top of the list. He entered
the service as a second lieutenant and was stationed at


McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey. He contested the
second lieutenant designation and made his way through
the legal negotiations to triumph as a first lieutenant and
received $3,000 in back pay. The couple went to New
York to celebrate where Delores bought a beautiful
purple coat.
The Air Force ordered Augie to Tachikawa, Japan so
they packed the family up and headed overseas. Delores
was seven months pregnant and a few short months later

seven lived in a small hut made of chicken wire
covered with plaster. Delores found out the

chaplain from any branch of service to go to

helped build Tent City in Saigon. Delores began

Although her classes were taught in English, her
C_ diploma is in Japanese. Many years later it was
translated for her and she learned she had
graduated with highest honors.
The family planned for months for their next
move to Dover, Delaware. They had maps and
learned about the local area from the Chamber of
Commerce. However, on Friday, June 5, they
learned that they would be going to San Antonio,
Texas. They were to leave on Friday, June 12.
Delores had to finish her degree, pack up a family
of seven, and sell their home and two cars. The
family pitched in and got it done.
Three short years later, the family was on their
m 'way to Istanbul, Turkey to live. They lived in an
apartment on the top of one of the seven hills of
Istanbul which overlooked the Bosphorus, a
narrow body of water which separates the
European and Asian sides of the city. From this

of a third rate hotel called the Carolina

small churches and filled in for
vacationing pastors. They decided to go
to Japan for a year to host a servicemen's
center. They enjoyed it so much that they
were not even home a year before they
were on their way to Spain for a year to
do the same thing. They traveled
extensively in Europe and it was their last
overseas journey.
From Redding they moved back to
Delores' home state of Georgia. Augie
died there shortly after they made the
move. It was a very hard time for the
whole family, but especially for Fram.
She had been married to Augie for 42
years and had lived in more than 46
houses with him. Delores moved to
Blairsville, Georgia in the mountains.
She bought a house she and Augie,had
considered buying. She became very
active in the community and started
writing for the local newspaper. She won
national awards for her articles. Every
week she had front-page articles with
pictures she took.
Her last marriage was to Edgar
Mikronis and she left her beloved


mountains for The Villages near Ocala.
When Edgar died, she looked for a place
where she could grow old gracefully in a
Christian environment. She found Advent
Christian Village in Dowling Park that all
the services she felt she needed and
moved there in 2007. She started writing
articles for the Suwannee Democrat to
spotlight the many wonderful people who
have come to Dowling Park.
I asked her would she do it again and
she said, "Yes." All in all she rated her
life as great. She has had her ups and
downs, but overall it's been great.
Wisdom she would like to pass on
would be to learn how to commit to
people, ideals and things you believe in
and then not waiver from them. Also, she
tells people to enjoy life because the Bible
says that Jesus came enjoying life. Last,
but not least, she says that if she had the
chance to do it over, she would learn to
forgive and say you are sorry quicker.
As you can see, Delores Kilpatrick, my
grandmother, has had a very full life and
she is still going strong. She is an
inspiration to people every day and that is
one of the reasons I chose her to
interview. Thank you, Fram.

Having the right information at the right time is the
most critical element to sound decision-making, and
it's no different for anyone trying to provide for .
wildlife conservation through land-use planning or
land management. Anyone in the land-use planning
and development industry can tell you that pulling
together pertinent wildlife information can be a
challenge.
Now the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), in collaboration with the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Florida
Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI), offers a one-stop
shop for this information with the Florida Wildlife
Conservation Guide: The guide is an online portal that
provides access to much of the basic technical
assistance information that the partnering agencies use
when consulting with landowners and land managers
about conservation issues and opportunities in Florida.
"We've recognized for a long time that there is a
large number of regulated activities out there that
could really benefit from early consultations, but we
simply do not have the staff resources to handle the
volume," said Joe Walsh, environmental commenting
leader. "However, we envisioned a much wider
audience for the guide as well. For example, there are
new landowners who have moved to the countryside

'_-;.(w g A study of oyster
reefs in a once-pristine
California coastal estuary found them
devastated by invasive Atlantic Coast crabs and snails, providing new evidence of
the consequences when human activities move species beyond their natural
borders.
Led by marine biologist David L. Kimbro, now of The Florida State University
Coastal and Marine Laboratory (www.marinelab.fsu.edu), the study shows that in
Tomales Bay (www.tomalesbay.net), half the population of California's native
Olympia oyster has perished because its habitat has fallen victim to the
dysfunctional relationship between native species and non-native ones accidentally
introduced.
The work of Kimbro, a postdoctoral associate at the FSU (www.fsu.edu) lab, and
colleagues from the University of California-Davis and its Bodega Marine
Laboratory has magnified concerns that predator-prey mismatches between native
and exotic species may lead to further losses of critical habitats that support marine
biodiversity and ecosystems.
"What David Kimbro's research reveals about California's Olympia oyster raises
a specter for Florida as well," said Felicia Coleman, director of the FSU Coastal
and Marine Laboratory.
"First, our state has a remarkably productive native oyster population at risk in
the Apalachicola Bay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ApalachicolaBay)," she said.
"These oysters are sustainably harvested and provide critically important
settlement habitat for an amazing array of species, so its loss would be devastating.
Second, we know that in Florida's benign climate, exotic species are pretty easily
established. One need only follow the trajectories of lionfish, Australian pine,
Brazilian pepper and Burmese python for a grim view through the looking glass."
Kimbro and colleagues describe their findings in a paper ("Invasive species
cause large-scale loss of native California oyster habitat by disrupting trophic
cascades") that was recently published in the online and print editions of the peer-
reviewed journal Oecologia
(www.springerlink.com/content/r6532w3g47751034/?p=27aa2b92baf44a6b8bdf46
lf8b387f79&pi=2>).
Their study is expected to help guide habitat management and conservation
efforts, including plans now being drawn up along the West Coast to restore native
oysters.
"We've identified what my California colleagues call 'an important restoration
bottleneck,' the attack on oysters by invasive species, which must be dealt with
prior to undertaking oyster population enhancement and the rebuilding of remnant
reefs," Kimbro said.
In California, said Kimbro, the artificial predator-prey mismatch has allowed
high numbers of invasive snails to destroy the biological diversity of Tomales Bay,
a coastal estuary about 40 miles northwest of San Francisco, by consuming and
eliminating oyster habitat.
As an example, he points to the invasive European green crab from the Atlantic
Coast (inadvertently introduced from Europe, so an exotic species even there).
Smaller than California's native crab, it is less effective at controlling the snail
population because it uses only brute force to kill its prey unlike its native
counterpart, which is capable both of crushing the snails and using its claws like a
can opener to peel open hard-to-crush larger shells.
Ecological consequences are profound when the species most affected by a
predator-prey mismatch is a "foundation species" that supports biodiversity by
creating extensive habitat, such as
California's native Olympia oyster
(Ostreola conchaphila), which
provides critical nursery habitat for
se rv a t o n a suite of speciesincluding crabs,
lO r al lanemones and fishes.
Although Olympia oyster reefs
are normally preyed upon by native
predatory snails, said Kimbro, they
If are somewhat protected by the


as the Florida scrub-jay and gopher tortoise. The guide
also is endorsed by the USFWS.
"We are pleased to be a part of this comprehensive
reference for managing and conserving Florida's
wildlife and their habitats," said Dave Hankla,
supervisor of the USFWS Jacksonville Field Office.*
"Information unique to our federal endangered species
programs is included as well."
The Florida Wildlife Conservation Guide assists
landowners in understanding the resources at their site
and offers guidance for development and conservation.
The guide is intended to increase the capacities of the
FWC, USFWS, and FNAI to deliver technical
assistance on projects and land-use planning activities
to support fish and wildlife resources,
The guide consists of four sections that lead the user,
through various conservation options. The first section
establishes a framework for site assessment and
natural resource evaluation. Habitat classification and
species on those habitats make up the second section.
The natural history of wildlife and possible
conservation actions are provided in the next section.
Finally, the user will be offered a host of conservation
opportunities, natural resource planning guidelines,
permit requirements and best management
practices.

presence of native rock crabs that
both consume native snails and
force all others to spend more time
hiding from crabs rather than
eating the oysters.
But when Atlantic snails and
crabs invade, the whole dynamic
changes.
"You'd think similar-looking
invasive and native species could
be swapped in a system without
adverse effects," he said "But we
have shown that, functionally, this
is not the case."
In Tomales Bay, the exotic,
species occupy its inner reaches,
where saline levels are lower.
However, native predators cannot,
tolerate the inner bay's lower
salinity, so they can't help to check
the invasive snail population
proliferating there.,The invasive
crabs are stuck in the inner bay
because the natives hold the
middle, with its higher salinity.
Once upon a time, native oysters
enjoyed a release from predation in
the inner bay that is, until the
invasive species moved in.
"While native predator-prey
interactions that benefit oyster reefs,
are intricate and took a long time to
develop, the invasive crab and snail
don't have the historical exposure
necessary to recreate these
important interactions," Kimbro
said. "A fellow researcher likened
the native crabs and sails to a ,
long-married couple Who have
learned to coexist, leaving oyster
populations intact. But thlie lack of
experience the invasive crabs and
snails have with each other has led
to the destruction of parts of the
oyster population, much as an
incompatible couple might destroy
an entire family."

Biologists



see spawning



fish in Marine



Protected Area


Biologists recently witnessed an extraordinary sight
while conducting an underwater study of mutton
snapper in the Florida Keys.
For the first time in Florida waters, scientists with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and
the University of South Florida observed this species
spawning in a Marine Protected Area in the Florida
Keys. The site was established, in part, to protect
spawning schools of snapper and grouper in the
Tortugas Ecological Reserve.
Mutton snapper is an important species to both
recreational and commercial fisheries. When fish group
together in large numbers to spawn, they are more
vulnerable to fishing pressure. Allowing the fish to
spawn without angler pressure will help sustain the
fishery. The data collected from this study will help
biologists understand the effectiveness of creating no-


take Marine Protected Areas to protect a variety of sea
life, including fish and coral reefs.
Biologists spotted the large school of spawning
snapper while working on an acoustic tagging project.
The purpose of this research is to obtain information
regarding the movement, spawning and migratory
habits of snappers and groupers. They conducted
surgeries underwater at depths of up to 120 feet to
implant acoustic tags inside the fish. Conducting the
tagging at this ground-breaking depth causes less stress
to the fish than bringing them to the surface by
conventional hook-and-line methods to complete the
surgeries.
Biologists will continue to receive data from the
tagged fish for the next few years. This information will
help them learn more about the movement, spawning
and migratory habits of these fish.

research, visit http://research.MyFWC.com.


Lobster poaching pretty pricey


It's known as "poaching," so if you
think taking over the bag limit, out-of-
season lobsters, or lobsters from a
sanctuary is OK, you may want to talk to
the people recently penalized for doing
just that.
During "Operation Freezer Burn" the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) assisted the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) Office for Law
Enforcement and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service in the search and arrest
warrants of a group illegally harvesting
lobsters from artificial habitat placed in
the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary (FKNMS).
The artificial habitats, referred to as
"casitas" or "condos," are perceived by
lobsters as shelter, and they congregate
at the sites. This makes for easy
harvesting of the crustaceans.


In the end, six people were convicted
for the illegal harvest of 922 lobsters on
the opening day of Florida's commercial
lobster season in August 2008. They
faced additional charges after authorities
found approximately 1,700 pounds of
wrung lobster tail stockpiled that was
harvested during the 2008 closed season
and intended for sale after opening day.
, "Those who respect and follow the
rules want those who are exhausting and
abusing the resources to pay," said
Officer Robert Dube of the FWC. "More
than 1,700 pounds of lobster tails
represents more than 1,000 times the
legal bag limit for a mini-season sport
dive. If everybody took half that many
lobsters, there wouldn't be any left."
The six people were convicted this
year in federal court, each charged with
harvesting spiny lobster within the
sanctuary from illegally installed


artificial habitat, exceeding the bag
limits, and illegally offering the lobsters
for commercial sale. The convicted are
David W. Dreifort, 41, and Denise D.
Dreifort, 48, both of Cudjoe Key; Robert
H. Hammer, 46, of Miami; Sean N.
Reyngoudt, 25, of Summerland Key;
John R. Niles, 50, of Labelle; and
Michael Delph, 39, of Key West.
"With lobsters coming in season, we
want to remind everyone, poaching of
lobsters isn't tolerated, and the penalties
can be stiff," Dube said.
One of the convicted, David Dreifort,
was sentenced to imprisonment for 30
months, followed by three years of
supervised release. In addition, he is
prohibited from fishing for five years in
many of the waters in and around South
Florida. He and his wife also had to
forfeit three vehicles and three boats; and
the Dreiforts must sell two properties in


the Florida Keys, including their
residence at Cudjoe Key, which was the
staging ground for the criminal conduct.
The proceeds from the sales up to $1.1
million will be used to remove the illegal
artificial habitats that the Drieforts
placed in FKNMS and help restoration
efforts for the approximately 700 sites.
The NOAA Office for Law
Enforcement, U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, National Marine Fisheries
Service Restoration Center and the
Damage Assessment and Resource
Protection Office, and the FWC worked
jointly throughout this investigation.
Recreational and commercial harvest
seasons for spiny lobster in Florida are
set to reopen soon. The special, two-day
spiny lobster sport season comes first,
July 29-30 this year, followed by the
regular lobster season Aug. 6 -
March 31.
