Dairy farmers suffer

Lafayette, Suwannee hit hard

by economic downturn


By Stephenie Livingston
stephenie.Iivingston@gaflnews.com
n the past year, Lafayette
County dairies have suf-
fered a crisis. And they are
not the only ones. Milk
prices have dropped while cost of
production has risen, affecting
dairies all over the country. In
Mayo, four local dairies have gone
out of business since January with
a fifth expecting to close some time
this month. A financial boost may


be on the way as a result of a recent
agreement between House and
Senate negotiators to include $350
million in aid in the 2010 agricul-
ture spending bill. But will it be
"too little too late" for Lafayette
County dairies?
For several local dairy farmers
like Charles Koon, it is already too
late. "After 55, all of a sudden the
road was jerked out from under
us," said Koon, whose field where
cows use to graze is now being
used to grow watermelons and


hay. The downturned economy and
the federally mandated price sys-
tem for milk have placed local
farmers in a precarious situation.
For Koon, it was no small decision
to stop milk production, but in the
end, he had no choice.
"Fifty-seven years and eleven
days. It was a hard decision to
make," said Koon. Koon Brothers
farm is not alone; Brautcheck
Dairy, HS dairy & Livestock and
Moses Dairy have all stopped pro-
duction this year.
The federal government has man-
dated the price of milk since the
1930s. In the past 30 years, price of

During the latter part of
September, the local

County Farm Bureau Meet-

Rep. Debbie Boyd was one of
the guest speakers. Rep.
Boyd talked on several key
legislative issues of signifi-

Also on the agenda for the

Sidney Koon Family was the

Hornets

down Eagles

39-11
By Stephenie Livingston

The Hornets beat the Eagles of Man-
darin Christian Friday night 39-11.
Freshman quarterback Antwan Brown
made big plays both on offense and
defense. Brown started the game with
a 64-yard rushing touchdown. And in
the fourth quarter he continued to run
the ball for two additional touch-
downs.
"Antwan Brown came up big this
week with a huge performance on
both sides of the ball," said Coach Joey
Pearson. In all Brown rushed for 157
yards and 3 touchdowns. Alan Driver
rushed for 76 yards and one touch-
down.
The relationship developed over the
season between senior quarterback

Seeds from the Sower


Michael A. Guido
A deacon arrived at church soaking
wet.
"What happened?" asked the
preacher.
"I met a bear on a log that crossed
the stream, and I jumped into the wa-
ter."
'Why didn't you pray?"
"Prayer is for prayer meeting," he
said, "not bear meeting."
But Daniel prayed in the lion's den,


Jonah in the belly of the fish, Peter on
the sea, and the thief on the cross. And
their prayers were answered.
Some have prayed short prayers, as
Peter's three-word prayer and long
prayers, like Solomon's eleven-hun-
dred-word prayer.
Samuel prayed in childhood, Timo-
thy in youth, and Simeon in old age;
and God answered.
Jesus said men "should always pray
and not give up."

Heart Matters


Do you have any diffi-
cult people in your life?
Are you in a relationship
with someone that often
results in frustration?
Anger? Confusion? Feel-
ing out of control? If you
are nodding your head to
all of the above, realize
that these feelings are in-
dicators of an unhealthy
element in your relation-
ship. They are actually
like an internal alarm
system that serves to let
us know that things are
not as they should be,
someone important to us
is affecting our life in a
very negative way.
In his book, Handling
Difficult People, author
Dr. John Townsend de-
scribes relationships as
"the delivery system for
so many of the good
things we need in life-
love, safety, grace,
warmth, encouragement,
truth, forgiveness, and
more. These elements
make life meaningful,
purposeful, and enjoy-
able. But life with a diffi-
cult person is none of
those things." Can any-
one say "amen?" Rela-
tionships with difficult
people can bring feelings
of isolation instead of
connection, and can actu-
ally work to destroy the
affection that you once
held. We can also begin
to believe that nothing
we try will fix the prob-
lem; this leaves us frus-
trated and we often re-
sort to becoming some-
one we don't want to be
when we are with our
difficult person. So what
should we do?
Take a look at 1
Corinthians 13:4-6, and
read the Biblical defini-
tion of love from a differ-
ent perspective:


"Love is patient, love is
kind. It does not envy, it
does not boast, it is not
proud. It is not rude, it is
not self-seeking, it is not
easily angered, it keeps
no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in
evil but rejoices with the
truth. It always protects,
always trusts, always
hopes, always perse-
veres."
Love's nature is to stay
with the relationship as it
develops, grows, and
matures. The fact that
love is patient and kind
does not mean that you
minimize or deny hurtful
behavior, nor are we to
become passive: doing
nothing to solve the
problem and simply
praying and hoping that
God will fix our difficult
person, we are co-labor-
ers with God, and He of-
ten shows us things to do
in addition to prayer (we
just often don't have the
courage to follow
through.) Love is not
proud, rude or self-seek-
ing, meaning that we
aren't trying to change
someone so that they be-
come what we want, but
that we long to see
growth so they become
who God created them to
be. The "always" of love
indicates that love must
be protected to last, and
often the best way to ac-
complish this is to con-
front the harmful behav-
ior of your difficult per-
son and put conse-
quences in place, not to
punish, but to motivate
change. If you continue
to enable your difficult
person, you are not help-
ing them, on the con-
trary, you are encourag-
ing them to continue
down this destructive


path.
Evaluate that difficult
relationship in your life,
and put real proactive
love into practice. Ask
God for wisdom and in-
struction, and a dose of
courage to follow
through. What you put
into practice today could
bring great results in
your relationship tomor-
row. God wants your re-
lationships to bring good
things into your life, be-
cause your heart matters!

Disabled? Social Security can help


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District
Manager, Gainesville, FIl
Disability is something
most people do not like to
think about. But the un-
fortunate reality is this:
the chances that you will
become disabled are
probably far greater than
you realize. Studies show
that a 20-year-old worker
has a three in 10 chance of
becoming disabled before
reaching retirement age.
Social Security pays
benefits to people with
disabilities through the
Social Security disability
insurance program,
which is covered by So-
cial Security taxes. If you
qualify, you can receive a
monthly disability benefit
from Social Security for as
long as your disability
keeps you from working.
The amount of your bene-
fit is based on your aver-
age lifetime earnings. Af-
ter a period of time, usu-
ally after receiving cash
benefits for 24 months,
you can also receive
Medicare coverage.
When you work and
pay Social Security taxes,
you earn credits. The
number of credits you
need to qualify for dis-
ability benefits depends
on your age, and some of
the work must be recent.
For example, if you be-
come disabled after age
31, you need to have
worked at least 10 years
and five of the past 10
years. But if you become
disabled before age 24,
you need only one and a
half years of work in the
past three years.
If you have a disability


that makes you unable to
work, the time to get
started with your appli-
cation is now. That's be-
cause it can take time to
determine whether you
qualify for benefits. It
usually takes about three
to five months for a med-
ical decision from the
state agency that evalu-
ates your condition.
Then, if your application
is approved, your first
Social Security disability
payment will be made
for the sixth full month
after the date we deter-
mine that your disability
began. Medicare cover-
age generally begins 24
months, or two years, af-
ter you begin receiving
Social Security disability
benefits.
Given the time it can
take, it's in your best in-
terest to do everything
you can to speed up the
process. The best first
step is for you to read our
online publication, Dis-
ability Benefits, at
"http:/ /www.socialsecu-
rity.gov/pubs/ 10029.ht
ml" www.socialsecuri-
ty.gov/pubs/10029.html
. It will tell you all about
the process, including
what information you
will need to apply for
benefits.


Then, take advantage
of our online disability
starter kits. You'll find
them on our disability
website at
"http:/ /www.socialsecu-
rity.gov/ disability"
www.socialsecurity.gov
/disability. There is one
kit for children and one
for adults. Each kit is
available in both English
and Spanish. The starter
kits help you begin the
process by providing in-
formation about the spe-
cific documents and the
information that we will
request from you. We
will ask for more details
during your interview or
when you complete the
online disability report.
Take a look at the dis-
ability starter kit now at
"http:/ /www.socialsecu-
rity.gov/ disability/"
www.socialsecurity.gov
/disability, or call 1-800-
772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-
0778) and ask that a kit be
mailed to you.
Once you complete the
online disability starter
kit and you're ready to
apply, the most conve-
nient way to do that is
online too. Just go to the
same disability website
at HYPERLINK

YEARBOOKS ON SALE!


The Lafayette High
School and Lafayette Ele-
mentary School Year-
books are now on sale!
There is nothing like
the magic of a yearbook!
Looking through a year-
book transports the read-
er to the time it repre-
sents, evoking all the
memories and emotions
of that year and the LHS
yearbook staff is working
hard to make this year's
book the best ever. One
of the ways we are doing
this is by giving the com-
munity an opportunity to
contribute pictures to
both the elementary and
high school yearbook. If
you have a picture that

Safe Schools

Healthy Students..


ABCD Community
Based After-School
Program
ABCD after school
program, open to all
school age children, con-
sistently provides fun,
recreational, motivation-
al and academic activi-
ties to engage students
and enhance skills across
the curriculum. Most of
the fun, recreational and
motivational activities
are based on students'
interest and current
events in the world and
local community. In
January, needless to say,
our students did Journal
writing and essays on
the subject of the presi-
dential election and a
commitment for how
change begins with each
of them, the community,
and then the nation.
To ensure that the stu-
dents work on the same
track as they do in the
regular school setting,
ABCD staff work closely
with the bench marks
and standards that are
being taught across the
curriculum. Staff train-
ing and professional de-
velopment is held
monthly to keep teachers
abreast of teaching and
disciplinary techniques.
Some students come to
the program just because
there is no place else to
go. Some come just to
play ping-pong, basket-


ball and pool. The ma-
jority participate to get
homework help and tu-
toring in math and read-
ing.
One of the hands on
activities that helps the
students with basic com-
putation is our "Buck
Store" that allows stu-
dents to earn bucks for
Reading, good behavior
and attendance. At the
end of each month stu-
dents may use their
earned bucks to pur-
chase items from the
Buck Store.
The ABCD, Inc. After
School Program is fund-
ed by the Lafayette Dis-
trict Schools' Safe
Schools Healthy Stu-
dents Initiative. Safe
Schools Healthy Stu-
dents also provides
funding for after school
programs at LHS, LES,
and the Lighthouse
Christian Academy. Pro-
ject SAVE also provides
funding for mental
health counseling, drug
and violence prevention,
truancy prevention and
intervention, school
readiness, and crisis
management. For more
information about the
Safe Schools Healthy
Students Initiative, you
may contact the Project
Director Becky Sharpe at

New Florida's



State Forest



Photo Contest



underway


The Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture
and Consumer Ser-
vices, Division of
Forestry began a photo
contest for state forest
visitors October 1,
2009.
The contest will have
three categories: na-
ture, recreation, and
artistic. The pho-
tographs will be
judged quarterly and
winners will be noti-
fied. Each quarterly
winner will automati-
cally be placed in the
annual judging for the
honor of the photo-
graph of the year. Re-
sults will be posted to
the photo contest web
page.
"Visitors, regardless
of whether they are
amateur or profession-
al photographers, are
encouraged to partici-
pate," said Jim Karels,
Director of Division of
Forestry. "Sometimes,
the best pictures are a
result of just being in
the right place at the
right time."


Prizes will be award-
ed to the quarterly and
annual winners
through sponsorship
from the Friends of
Florida State Forests.
"This is a great oppor-
tunity to showcase our
state forests and at the
same time get people
involved," said Friends
of Florida State Forests
Program Coordinator
Lawrence Scovotto.
"There are many tal-
ented photographers
interested in capturing
impressions of forest
ecosystems, and this
contest can provide,
not only statewide, but
national recognition of
their work," he said.

mation regarding

Community College
Artist Series welcomes
Brotherhood, an a cap-
pella quartet from Tam-
pa, to the Van H. Priest
Auditorium stage on
Thursday, Oct. 15 at 7
p.m. Back by popular
demand and singing


classic songs from the
50s and 60s and beyond,
the Brotherhood perfor-
mance promises to be an
outstanding night of en-
tertainment. Enjoy the
harmonic voices of this
talented group as they

mony. The group, to-
gether since 1988, offers
a mix of jazz, rock, pop,
oldies, doo wop and
gospel music with crisp,
ringing high notes and
earth shaking lows.
Each of the singers in
Brotherhood teaches mu-
sic in the Tampa Bay

recognized for their
work in education and
were the first ever recipi-
ents, in Hillsborough
County, of the Superin-
tendent's Award for Ex-
cellence, Dedication, and
Devotion in Education.
They have sung for Pres-
idents and First Ladies,
and have represented the

ington D.C. as entertain-
ers at the Kennedy Cen-
ter for the Performing

From your Veterans

Service officer

Carlton Black


Veterans Pension
Program

What is VA Pension for
veterans?
Pension is a benefit
paid to wartime veterans
who have limited or no
income, and who are age
65 and older, or, if under
65, who are permanently
and totally disabled.
Veterans who are more
seriously disabled may
qualify for Aid and At-
tendance or House
bound benefits. Those
are benefits that are paid
in addition to the basic
pension rate.

Who is eligible?
Generally, you may be
eligible if:
you were discharged
from service under con-
ditions other than dis-
honorable,
AND
you served at least
90 days of active military
service 1 day of which
was during a war time
period. If you entered
active duty after Sep-
tember 7,1980, generally
you must have served at
least 24 months or the
full period for which
called or ordered to ac-
tive duty (There are ex-
ceptions to this rule),
AND
your countable fami-
ly income is below a
yearly limit set by law
(The yearly limit on in-
come is set by Congress),
AND
you are age 65 or old-
er, OR, you are perma-
nently and totally dis-
abled, not due to your
own willful misconduct.
As you can see, there
are a number of criteria
that may affect your eli-
gibility to pension bene-
fits. If you are unsure if
you meet all criteria, we
encourage you to go
ahead and file an appli-
cation, particularly if
your countable income
appears to be near the
maximum. VA will de-
termine if you are eligi-
ble and notify you. If
you do not initially qual-
ify, you may reapply if
you have un-reimbursed
medical expenses during
the twelve month period
after VA receives your
claim that bring your
countable income below
the yearly income limit.
(These are expenses you
have paid for medical
services or products for
which you will not be re-
imbursed by Medicare
or private medical insur-
ance.
What is countable
income for veterans
pension eligibility
purposes?
This includes income
received by the veterans
and his or her depen-
dents, if any, from most
sources. It includes earn-


ings, disability and re-
tirement payments, in-
terest and dividends,
and net income from
farming or business.
There is a presump-
tion that all of a child's
income is available to or
for the veteran. VA may
grant an exception in
hardship cases.
What about net worth?
Net worth means the
net value of the assets of
the veteran and his or
her dependents. It in-
cludes such assets as
bank accounts, stocks,
bonds, mutual funds
and any property other
than the veteran's resi-
dence and a reasonable
lot area. There is no set
limit on how much net
worth a veteran and his
dependents can have,
but net worth cannot be
excessive. The decision
as to whether a
claimant's net worth is
excessive depends on
the facts of each individ-
ual case. All net worth
should be reported and
VA will determine if a
claimant's assets are suf-
ficiently large that the
claimant could live off
these assets for a reason-
able period of time. VA's
needs-based programs
are not intended to pro-
tect substantial assets or
build up an estate for the
benefit of heirs.

Are there any exclu-
sions to income or de-
ductions that may be
made to reduce count-
able income? Yes, there
are exclusions. The fol-
lowing are examples of
what may be excluded:
Public assistance
such as Supplemental
Security Income is not
considered income.
Many other specific
sources of income are
not considered income,
however, all income
should be reported. VA
will exclude any income
that the law allows.
A portion of unreim-
bursed medical expenses
paid by the claimant af-
ter VA receives the
claimant's pension claim
may be deducted. (These
are expenses you have
paid for medical services
or products for which
you will not be reim-
bursed by Medicare or
private medical insur-
ance.)
Certain other ex-
penses, such as a veter-
an's education expens-
es, and in some cases, a
portion of the educa-
tional expenses of a
child over 18 are de-
ductible.
How does VA calculate
your pension?
Your annual pension
is calculated by first to-
taling all your count-
able income. Then any
deductions are subtract-
ed from that total. The
remaining countable in-
come is deducted from
the appropriate annual
pension limit which is
determined by the num-
ber of your dependents,
if any, and whether or
not you are entitled to
house bound or aid and
attendance benefits.
This amount is then di-
vided by 12 and round-
ed down to the nearest
dollar.

Dairy farmers suffer as milk prices sour


Continued From Page 1A

milk has gone up and
down, but mostly
stayed the same. Lesli
Kurtz, owner of Kurtz
and Sons Dairy located
just off of SR 52 con-
necting Mayo and Live
Oak, has studied the lo-
cal dairy crisis for
years. "The farmer has
been given the same
price they got 25 years
ago. This is the effect of
low milk prices over a
long period of time,"
said Kurtz. "You can
not have someone liv-
ing at the poverty level
and expect their busi-
ness to flourish."
The Kurtz dairy is one
of the few in the area
said to be flourishing.
In January the whole-
sale price of milk fell
drastically. As a result
farmers have been get-
ting $1 per gallon, even
though their average
cost is $1.90. "The price
has been below the cost
of production," said Rob
Land, who is on the
board of directors of
Southeast Milk in
Mayo. "That says it all."
The cost of production
has gone up with the in-
crease in fuel and feed
prices, causing even the


co-ops to suffer. "When
the farmer hurts, every
organization they own
hurts," Land said.
What's worse is with the
rise in production cost
so has come a decrease
in demand.
"It is not surprising,"
Kurtz said of the current
dairy situation.
So why did milk
prices stay the same?
The answer is an unbal-
ance of supply and de-
mand. The large dairy
cooperation's in the
Midwest and far West
have been consistently
increasing production at
such a rapid rate that a
surplus developed, ac-
cording to Koon. Newly
developed breeds of
cow as well as the use of
hormones has also aid-
ed in the milk surplus,
said Kurtz. Koon says
the large cooperation's
are also more likely to
receive loans, grants,
and government assis-
tance.
Florida's recent popu-
lation decline and the
downturned economy
have also contributed to
an overall decrease in
milk demand, affecting
the states dairy industry
which is concentrated in
the Lake Okeechobee


area and Suwannee Riv-
er Basin. Consumption,
however, is beginning
to pick up in recent
months, say analysts.
So Lafayette County is
not alone in its dairy
dilemma.
For example, Suwan-
nee County lost Suwan-
nee River Dairy in 2005,
Haymurph Farms II in
2006, Tropical Dairy in
2007 and Day Springs
this year. J-Lu and other
Suwannee County
dairies are nearing their
breaking point.
"If things stay the
same, I don't know how
long we'll be in busi-
ness," said manager of J-
Lu Farms Martin Her-
nandez. There needs to
be a turn around soon,
he continued. "We're
just waiting on some-
thing to turn us
around."
"Right now we're liv-
ing day by day," Her-
nandez said. J-Lu Farms
has nine full-time em-
ployees and it is one of
the smaller local dairies.
A compromise by the
U.S. House and Senate
calls for $290 million to
be given to dairy farm-
ers under a process yet
to be determined by the
U.S. Department of


Agriculture. But at the
rate local dairies are
abandoning their milk-
ing stations and turning
grazing land into hay
fields, the damage may
already be done, accord-
ing to Hernandez.
However, some
dairies are already ris-
ing from the ashes.
"We decided to sepa-
rate from the co-op,"
said Kurtz, whose dairy
farm was nearing col-
lapse just a few years
ago. Since that decision
Kurtz and Sons Dairy
has done increasingly
well, milking and bot-
tling their own milk.
Their cows are grass
fed, instead of fed with
manufactured feed, and
the milk is processed
with well water. The
Kurtzes also produce
raw milk, which is their
most popular product.
Lesli and Bubba Kurtz
sell their organic milk to
supermarkets, such as
Jim's Produce in Live
Oak, and they also sale
at farmer's markets.
"The milk we produce is
healthier and better tast-
ing," said Lesli Kurtz.
"We've saved a few of
our good heifers, just in
case things turn
around," said Koon.


Newly appointed board member

to SRWMD speaks to Rotarians


Carl Meese, newly
appointed SRWMD
board member
speaks to Rotarians


Linda Smith

Carl Meese, recently
appointed by the Gov-
ernor to the Suwannee
River Water Manage-
ment Board, addressed
Rotarians at the weekly
meeting.
Meese shared with
Rotarians that he is
very interested in
learning the ins and
outs of SRWMD, and
how they do business,


and especially in
Lafayette County, since
over fifty percent of the
land they own is in
Lafayette County.
According to Meese,
he is not yet familiar
enough with things, to
address any specific is-
sues, having only been
in this position about
three weeks. But he
did offer Rotarians the
opportunity to ask
questions, or state con-


cerns, as it turned out
to be.
After hearing from
several Rotarians on
somewhat "heated" is-
sues concerning
Suwannee River Water
Management and is-
sues that concern
Lafayette County, he
stated he would defi-
nitely make note and
address some of these
issues at a future SR-
WMD board meeting.

Nick Bracewell and se-
nior receiver Brooks
Laminack remained
consistent with
Bracewell's 21-yard pass
to Laminack for a touch-
down during the fourth
quarter.
"We are happy to get
another district win. We
started a little slow and


had some turnovers that
stopped our momentum
in the first half. Our
guys kept fighting and
we were able to put
them away in the second
half," said Pearson. "We
have homecoming this
week so hopefully we
can go out and win this
one and get ready for
some big district games
down the stretch."


Rep. Debbie Boyd, right, spoke on several legislative is-
sues of interest to local farmers.


SRWMD recognized

for financial reporting


Finance Officer Vern Roberts, left, and Fiscal Assistant III
Leah Lamontagne hold the Certificate of Achievement for
Excellence in Financial Reporting that was awarded to the
Suwannee River Water Management District recently.


The Suwannee River
Water Management Dis-
trict (SRWMD) has been
awarded the Certificate
of Achievement for Ex-
cellence in Financial Re-
porting by the Govern-
ment Finance Officers
Association of the Unit-
ed States and Canada
(GFOA) for its Compre-
hensive Annual Finan-
cial Report (CAFR).
This is the seventeenth
consecutive year SR-
WMD has received the
recognition.
The Certificate of
Achievement is the high-
est form of recognition
in the area of govern-
mental accounting and
financial reporting, and
its attainment represents
a significant accomplish-
ment by a government
and its management.
The CAFR has been
judged by an impartial
panel to meet the high
standards of the pro-
gram including demon-
strating a constructive


"spirit of full disclosure"
to clearly communicate
its financial story and
motivate potential users
and user groups to read
CAFR.
A certificate of recog-
nition was presented to
SRWMD Finance Officer
Vern Roberts and SR-
WMD Fiscal Assistant III
Leah Lamontagne. Both
Roberts and Lamon-
tagne prepared the
CAFR.
The GFOA is a non-
profit professional asso-
ciation serving about
17,500 government fi-
nance professionals with
offices in Chicago and
Washington, D.C. The
purpose of the Associa-
tion is to enhance and
promote the professional
management of govern-
ments for the public ben-
efit by identifying and
developing financial
policies and practices
and promoting them
through education,
training and leadership.
