A look back


Staff
What a year. A spring
flood that wasn't as bad as
feared, but still caused terri-
ble damage. A cold-blooded
murder that's still unsolved.
A man convicted of killing
his own child.
But there was good news
as well. County schools ex-
celled yet again. Local
fourth graders led the state
in math on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test and the district as a
whole earned an "A" from
the state. Expansion at
Mayo Correctional Institu-
tion led to the creation of
169 new jobs.
We had time for some
fun, too. Pioneer Day was a
treat, and the Christmas Pa-
rade, held a week late be-
cause of the weather, in-
spired us all as always.
Here's a look back at
2009, month by month.



Canceled
Pilgrim's
growers face
huge losses
Local poultry producers
whose contracts with Pil-
grim's Pride have been or
soon will be canceled,
gathered at a local farm to
assess their options. Little
came of the meeting in
terms of an organized re-
sponse, but a picture
emerged of financial loss
and potential ruin for many
of the growers, some of
whom have sizable mort-
gages on chicken houses
that now sit empty.

136 RV sites
OK'd
by commission
The Lafayette County
Commission approved a
special exception for 136 RV
sites for the Suwannee Riv-
er Rendezvous Resort and
Campground. Owners
Frank and Susie Page will
proceed with the purchase
of 19 acres adjacent to the
Rendezvous for the new
sites.

versity of Miami); Casey

gan (Bethune Cookman);

versity).



CodeRED
makes
its debut
Lafayette County Emer-
gency Management has
contracted with Emergency
Communications Network,
Inc., of Ormond Beach, for
its CodeRED high-speed
telephone emergency notifi-
cation services. The
CodeRED system gives
county officials the ability
to deliver pre-recorded
emergency telephone notifi-
cation/ information mes-
sages to targeted areas or
the entire county at a rate of
up to 60,000 calls per hour.


LAFAYETTE
HIT HARD
10 homes destroyed in
flood; 19 suffer major
damage

A total of 240 Lafayette
County homes were affect-
ed by flood conditions, ac-
cording to figuresres released
by the State Emergency Re-
sponse Team. Ten homes
were destroyed, 19 suffered
major damage, 166 sus-
tained minor damage and
45 were inaccessible.


The Suwannee didn't reach the botto
W. Adams Bridge, but it got close. -

We're #2 -
again
Fourth graders at
Lafayette Elementary
School have done it again.
The students scored a 4.3
out of 6 on the writing por-
tion of the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test.
That's not only two tenths
of a point higher than last
year, it's tied for second


highest
score in
the state.
Again.

4th-graders
lead state in
FCAT math
Lafayette County fourth-
graders led the state
in math on the
Florida Comprehen- -
sive Assessment
Test, with 86 per-
cent scoring at
grade level or
above, an 8 percent
increase over last
year.

An 'A' for Onlo


Lafayette Friday
The Lafayette ingston
County school dis-
trict received a
grade of "A" this year for
the first time in the past five
years. Lafayette Elementary
School received an "A"
while the high school re-
ceived a "B."



Burglary ring
had broad
reach, say
police

Nearly a month ago, four
Dixie County men were ar-
rested in connection with a
burglary ring that may have
hit 100 or more
homes in
Lafayette,

brings 169
new jobs
An expansion at Mayo
Correctional Institution in-
creased the prison's capaci-
ty by 1,300 and, more im-
portantly, created 169 new
positions at the facility.

Man convicted
of baby's
murder
A Lafayette County jury
found Jeffrey D. Ray guilty
of murder in the 2006
death of his infant daugh-

Ray had little visible reac-
tion when the verdicts were
read by Clerk of Court
Ricky Lyons at the county
courthouse.
The jury, which began de-
liberations around 4 p.m.
and continued into the
evening, found Ray guilty
of first-degree murder and
aggravated child abuse.

Heart Matters


Happy New Year!!
Now I know that lots of
folks enjoy their Christ-
mas lights and decora-
tions until after New
Years, and don't get me
wrong...no one enjoys
Christmas more than
me, but the day
after...I,m ready for that
tree to come down. Even
as a little girl I remem-
ber going back to our
Christmas tree after the
presents were opened
and the family celebra-
tion was over. That tree
seemed so sad standing
there all alone...
Maybe that's because I
like moving forward.
After Christmas, I im-
mediately start antici-
pating the fresh clean
pages of the New Year's
calendar. Depending on
how you look at it, those
pages can represent
days full of dread and
demands or they can
shine with possibility


and opportunities! The
Bible records the Apos-
tle Paul saying it best:
"...I press on to take hold
of that for which Christ
Jesus took hold of
me...but one thing I do:
forgetting what is be-
hind and straining to-
ward what is ahead, I
press on toward the goal
to win the prize for
which God has called
me heavenward in
Christ Jesus." (Philippi-
ans 3:13-14)
In realizing that God
has a plan and purpose
for our lives, we should
understand that He has
called us to participate
with Him in bringing
that purpose to reality.
Paul says we have to
"press on" or keep mov-
ing forward to fulfill
that plan. Then he gives
us instruction on how to
do just that: Forgetting
what is behind doesn't
mean that we should not


the latest news and stories that touch home.
We want to give it to you.

remember our
past...only God can in-
tentionally forget any-
thing. What it does
mean is that the past
shouldn't take priority
over the present and fu-
ture. Too many of us
struggle continually
with the hurt and fail-
ures of the past and
can't seem to move
ahead in forgiveness, or
on to success. Or maybe
we dwell on the past be-
cause we believe they
were our best days, and
the rest of our years will
pale in comparison-and
they absolutely will as
long as we choose to
stay behind.
God's desire is for us
to give the present and
future our energy, our
hope and our faith that
His plan for us will be
"immeasurably more
than all we ask or imag-
ine, according to His
power that is at work
within us." (Ephesians
3:20) The abundant life
that Christ offers is not a
destination, but a jour-
ney...and to find it, we
keep moving forward
until we reach that
"heavenward" home.
The second part of the
instruction is just as im-
portant; we need to pay
special attention to
"straining toward what
is ahead." Webster's dic-
tionary defines "strain"
as "to struggle; to make
a desperate effort." This
is our first clue that
pressing on and moving
forward will not always
be an easy thing to do.
"Easy" often means stay-
ing right in that same
comfortable spot-it may


Angie Land


not even be a great spot,
but at least we know
what to expect! We
have the choice: we can
do "easy" and spend the
rest of our lives wonder-
ing what we missed, or
we can start making that
intentional effort to find
and live in the purpose
for which God planned
our whole life.
I hope so much that
you will grab those fresh
pages of a 2010 calendar
and see them as brand
new opportunities to be
everything that God cre-
ated you to be...because
your heart really does
matter!

El si.,ss for an
amazing New Year!

Legendary Naomi

and the Segos to

appear in Madison


A gospel music spec-
tacular will be taking
place at Yogi Bear's Jelly-
stone Park in Madison on
Saturday, January 2,
2010, featuring gospel
music legend Naomi and
the Segos. The concert is
free admission, but a love
offering will be received
during the concert.
Originally known as
The Sego Brothers and
Naomi, this group began
gaining exposure in the
late 1950's. James Sego,
along with his wife Nao-
mi and brothers W.R.
and Lamar, hosted a
popular television pro-
gram on WMAZ- TV in
Macon, Ga. It was during
this time they traveled to
Nashville, Tenn. and
recorded their first hit
that would gain them na-
tional recognition, "Is My
Lord Satisfied With Me."
However, superstardom
came in 1962 when The
Sego Brothers and Nao-
mi became the first group
in history to record and
sell one million records
with the song, "Sorry, I
Never Knew You." The
rest of the 1960's saw
them touring the globe
with many other hit
songs. During the 1970's
their popularity in-
creased with perfor-
mances on the popular
TV show "The Gospel
Singing Jubilee." Perhaps
one of their biggest songs
came along during that
time as they enjoyed the


success of the chart top-
per "Hallelujah Square."
The late 1970's saw
tragedy as well as suc-
cess. In 1979, James Sego,
Naomi's husband,
passed away. During the
1980's Naomi continued
to travel and record. She
remarried, to a Texas
evangelist named Ver-
non Reader, and the
group underwent a name
change to Naomi and
The Segos. Vernon
passed away in October
of 1998.
Now, in their 5th
decade of Gospel Music
ministry, this group con-
tinues to press forward
for the cause of Christ.
Traveling some 200 dates
a year all over the United
States and Canada, the
message of this group re-
mains strong and power-
ful. Perhaps it is each
group members own per-
sonal experience with
God that continues to
drive their excellence in
performance and min-
istry. Naomi and The Se-
gos is a legendary name
in Gospel Music. With
their traditional sounds,
musical excellence, and
sincerity, they produce a
message that will lead
people to Christ.
Naomi and the Segos
consists of Naomi Sego
Reader, Scott Spangler,
Jerry Gill and Bryant
Thigpen.
For more information,
please call (850) 464-0114.


DO RIGHT


David H. Matier, Doctor of
Pastoral Counseling HY-
PERLINK "mailto:dmati-
er@windstream.net"
While still working as a
mental health counselor I
often asked, "Do you re-
member the cartoon char-
acter Dudley Do-right?"
And whether they re-
membered the character
or not they were remind-
ed that the important
thing was to "DO
RIGHT." It is too bad
someone hadn't given
this advice to Tiger
Woods, if they had and
he followed the advice,
he wouldn't have been in
the position he is in to-
day, his beautiful family
on the brink of failure, his
privacy a matter of the
scandal sheets all over
the world. And for what,
a few hours of sordid
pleasure when he was
out of his wife's sight
brought on by fame and
fortune! When a person
does wrong he/she will
have skeletons in the
closet that may jump out
when they least expect it.
Even in my opinion he
had a squeaky clean im-
age and I am not even a
big golf fan, but from
what I did see of him in
the news, etc. I was dis-
appointed when all of
these skeletons emerged
from his closet apparent-
ly all that's done in Vegas
does not stay in Vegas!
You won't experience a
good, happy, life until
you get right with God
and live according to His
Word. You've got to start
at the beginning, you
must realize that, like
Tiger Woods, you are a
sinner. The Bible says,


"For ALL have sinned,
and come short of the
glory of God," (Romans
3:23), There is no one free
of guilt, no one that can
say, "I don't sin," or "I've
never sinned!" And be-
cause you have sinned
you are going to die, be
separated from your
loved ones "For the
WAGES of sin is
DEATH;" (Romans
6:23a). "Death" simply
means "separation."
Physical death is separa-
tion from your loved
ones. Spiritual death is
eternal separation from
God, the ultimate death;
that you deserve because
you have sinned against a
righteous God!
But God commendeth
(has shown) his love to-
ward us, in that while we
were yet sinners, CHRIST
DIED FOR US. (Romans
5:8). You see the wages
of sin is death, someone
had to pay the price and
that is exactly why Jesus
came. He exhibited His
love for you by taking
your sin debt and going
to the cross to pay your
debt and now he wants to
give you a gift. Above
we saw the first half of
Romans 6:23, the rest of
the verse goes on to say,
"...but the GIFT of God is
eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord." No-
tice, ETERNAL LIFE IS A
GIFT! If you had to earn
it it would be a wage;
something you had
earned, like "death" the
wages of sin but you
don't get it by anything
you do. All you do, basi-
cally is by believing and
receiving it. "...if thou
shalt confess with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus and
shalt believe in thine


heart that God hath
raised him from the
dead, thou shalt be
saved. For with the heart
man believeth unto right-
eousness; and with the
mouth confession is
made unto salvation. For
the scripture saith,
Whosoever believeth on
him shall not be
ashamed. For there is no
difference between the
Jew and the Greek: for
the same Lord over all is
rich unto all that call
upon him. For whosoev-
er shall call upon the
name of the Lord shall be
saved." (Romans 10:9-
13). If you will believe,
trusting the Lord to save
your soul, and call upon
His name, the Bible says
you will be saved! Jesus
said, ...Except a man be
born again, he cannot see
the kingdom of God."
(John 3:3). The point at
which you are born
again is when you call


upon the Lord, trusting
Him to save you, and
then you can accept His
promise and say, "I
know when I die I will go
to heaven, based on
scripture. "And this is
the record, that God hath
given to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
He that hath the Son hath
life; and he that hath not
the Son of God hath not
life. These things have I
written unto you that be-
lieve on the name of the
Son of God; that ye may
KNOW that ye have eter-
nal life, and that ye may
believe on the name of
the Son of God." (I John
5:11-13).
Knowing your destiny
provides a peace that you
can not imagine. It does-
n't solve all of your prob-
lems but makes you want
to live close enough to
Him to please Him, to
want to
"DO RIGHT."

Lafayette County cousins to perform in Alamo Bowl Halftime Show


Lafayette County
cousins Katie Jackson
and Shelbi McCall will be
performing as feature
twirlers in the Valero
Alamo Bowl Halftime
Show in San Antonio,
Texas. They were both
selected as All Star Per-
formers during the
Marching Auxiliaries
Majorette Camp, held in
July 2009 at the Universi-
ty of Florida.
The girls were invited
to participate in several
events throughout the
year including the
Macy's Day Parade & Fi-
esta Bowl. The girls will
have the opportunity to
work with the world
renowned choreograph-
er Michael Lemanski, ac-
credited for such produc-
tions as the Super Bowl,
Gator Bowl and Orange
Bowl. Michael Lemanski
has also worked with
three well known pro-
ductions on Broadway
that include Wicked,
Phantom of the Opera,
and Hairspray.
The Alamo Bowl will


Shelbi McCall and Katie Jackson


be televised on ESPN,
January 2, at 8 p.m. Cen-
tral Time. This year the
Alamo Bowl will host
Michigan State vs. Texas
Tech. The 2010 game
will mark the first time
the game will be played
in January. It is expected
to receive a crowd of ap-
proximately 50,000 peo-


ple in attendance, rank-
ing one the largest at-
tended bowl games due
to the long New Year's
weekend.
Katie is the daughter of
Brack and Kelly Jackson
of Mayo, Florida. She is
a 2nd year Lafayette
High School Majorette.
Shelbi is the daughter of


WINGS in North Florida


Workforce has been
awarded a $130,360
grant from Workforce
Florida, Inc. through
their Workforce Innova-
tive New Generation
Solutions (WINGS).
These funds will ad-
dress the needs of im-
proving
broadband / telecommu-
nications access in the
North Central Florida
Rural Area of Critical
Concern (RACEC)
which includes Baker,
Bradford, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamil-
ton, Jefferson, Lafayette,
Levy, Madison, Put-
nam, Suwannee, Taylor


and Union Counties.
Because there has
been little demand for
broadband related occu-
pations in the North
Central Florida RACEC
region, there currently
is not a talent pipeline
which may be quickly
tapped into as work be-
gins throughout the
state and nation to
build the broadband in-
frastructure being fund-
ed through the Ameri-
can Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act (ARRA).
The Broadband Educa-
tion and Training Assis-
tance (BETA), seeks to
remedy this shortcom-


ing and create a talent
pool for the broadband
industry which can be
tapped into by those
employers contracted to
install and maintain the
broadband access
throughout this
RACEC.
Through a partner-
ship with North Florida
Community College's
Workforce Education
Department, 15 individ-
uals will receive train-
ing to become Fiber Op-
tic Installers. Training
will take place in 2010.

Proclamation for 3rd of January 2010

as a Day of Repentance and Prayer

for the Southern Nation

Southerners! We have sinned against Almighty God.


Submitted
We have left undone
those things which we
ought to have done,
and we have done
those things which we
ought not to have
done. We have not
worshipped the one
true God alone, but
have trusted in false
gods. We have raised
up idols of self, enter-
tainment, indulgence,
sport, riches, and espe-
cially the state. We
have not hallowed the
name of God in the
world or in ourselves,
turning the name
"Christian" into a by-
word for hypocrisy.
Trusting in our own
powers and schemes to
prosper us, we have
cultivated a spirit of re-
bellion at home, in
church, and in civil
government. We have
not protected life but
have built a culture of
death, even sacrificing
our own children. We
have abandoned puri-
ty, overthrown honor-
able marriage, and fol-
lowed shameless lusts
in heart and deed. We
have not upheld truth
but have cravenly suc-
cumbed to a culture of
falsehood. We have
embraced envy as a
way of life and have
used the coercive ma-
chinery of the state to
despoil our neighbor.
Even when we have
not committed these
sins ourselves, we have
consented to them by


cowardly silence.
There is no health in
us. We have fallen
away from the God
who is our only refuge
and strength, the God
whose Providence
made us into a sepa-
rate and distinct Peo-
ple. We have spurned
the covenant He made
with our fathers and
forgotten His mercies
to us from time im-
memorial unto this
day.
Our only hope in this
day of growing distress
and darkness is for
God's merciful interpo-
sition. That blessing
must be preceded by a
spirit of true repen-
tance, whereby we cry
out to Him to revive us
by His Holy Spirit and
to renew toward us His
boundless mercies of
old.
THEREFORE in
humble dependence
and trust upon
Almighty God, We the
Delegates of the Four-
teen Southern States, in
Congress assembled,
September 12, 2009 in
Delta, Alabama, do
hereby proclaim Sun-
day, the 3rd of January
2010 as a day of repen-
tance and intercessory
prayer for the Southern
Nation.
We call upon the
Governors, Legisla-
tures, and Congrega-
tions of the Southern
States to join us in pro-
claiming in their re-
spective States and ob-

serving the appointed
day of repentance and
prayer for the Southern
Nation.
Mindful of the
promises made unto
mankind in Christ Je-
sus our Lord, we here-
by urge and invite the
clergy and people of
the Southern states to
implore the blessing of
Almighty God upon
our Southland, encour-
aging our fellow South-
erners "to stand before
the Lord on that day,
with public humilia-
tion, fasting, and
prayer, to deplore our
many sins, to offer up
our joint supplications
to God for forgiveness."
Let us beseech the
Holy Lord God, whose
Law we have broken
and whose wrath we
justly deserve, to con-
vert the hearts of our
enemies as well as our
People. Let us together
humbly supplicate "the
Supreme Ruler of the
world that the rod of
tyrants may be broken
to pieces, and the op-


pressed made free
again." Let us pray that
He will hasten the time
when all conflicts with
their sufferings and
sorrows shall cease;
that He will secure to
us the restoration of
peace and prosperity,
and having recovered
us to obedience in His
service, that He will
give our beloved South
land once again a name
and place among the
nations of the earth, to
His honor and glory.
Adopted September
12, 2009 by the Second
Southern National Con-
gress at Delta, Alabama

claimed to the People
of the States of Alaba-

Year-round

landscape

irrigation rule

takes effect Jan. 6


Starting Jan. 6, all
homeowners and others
within the Suwannee
River Water Manage-
ment District (District)
will be asked to limit
landscape irrigation to
one or two days per
week, depending upon
the time of the year.
For the first time ever,
the District is imple-
menting a year-round
water conservation rule
that applies to residen-
tial landscaping, public
or commercial recre-
ation areas, and public
and commercial busi-
nesses that aren't regu-
lated by a District-is-
sued permit.
In the past, the Dis-
trict has enacted only
short-term voluntary re-
strictions in response to
drought conditions.
Jon Dinges, the Dis-
trict's director of re-
source management,
said the new require-
ment will help address
water needs within the
District.
"Water supply is a
statewide issue," Dinges
said. "We all must do
our part to conserve."
Unlike other areas of
the state where irriga-
tion schedules are set
according to addresses,
water users in the SR-
WMD will be allowed to
set their own schedules
as follows: Choose one
day per week to water
landscapes during East-
ern Standard Time,
which begins the first
Sunday in November;
choose two days per


week during Daylight
Savings Time, beginning
the second Sunday in
March. In both cases, ir-
rigation should not oc-
cur between 10 a.m. and
4 p.m.
Newly planted land-
scapes may be watered
more frequently for 60
days following planting.
"Reducing landscape
irrigation and watering
more efficiently helps us
make the most of our re-
sources and it reduces
irrigation costs," Dinges
said.
Those who wish to
deviate from the water
conservation rule must
apply for a water use
permit.
The requirement is
part of the District's
new water use permit-
ting rules.
In addition to water
conservation for land-
scape irrigation, the new
rules require anyone ap-
plying for a water use
permit to implement a
water conservation plan.
Dinges said only new
permit applicants are re-
quired to adopt a con-
servation plan; existing
permit holders must ad-
here to their current
permits.
The new water use
rules will be posted on
the District's website as
of Jan. 6. Go to
www.mysuwanneeriv-
er.com/rulesandregs
and click on 40B-2. For
more information con-
tact Linda Welch, rules
coordinator, at
386.362.1001.

Church with the Carters


B v


Kenny Hart Jr. and his mother, Janice Hart, recently attended church with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter in Plains,
Ga. The former President teaches Sunday School there, and the public is invited to attend.
The Harts had to be cleared by Secret Service agents before. i. ;n*, the church. But once they got inside and the
service began, God's presence really began to be felt, and it was awesome.
Inside there were two big TV cameras like we were on TV
In front of the church was about a half-mile of cotton fields. It felt like we'd been to Grandpa's farm and went to

When it comes to cars, nothing has more horsepower than
newspaper advertising to ignite consumers. Auto shoppers
absorb a great deal of information from a cornucopia of sources
but rely on newspapers to help them make a sound choice.














#1: National dealership entry and exit polls conducted by CNW
Research asked consumers for the reason for visiting a dealership
on a particular day. Newspaper (print and online) was the number
one reason. At 56.8%, more consumers cite newspapers than all
other media combined.

Primary: Local newspaper advertising (print and online) is
The Primary Source of information for consumers during the critical
last stages of the decision making process. 16.59% rely on newspa-
per advertising as the main source during the last two weeks before
buying. More than any other information source.

PPicing information: 96% of new car buyers agree that
newspapers are most helpful as a source for pricing information.

Where to buy: 97% of new car buyers agree that newspapers
are most helpful as a source of information on where to buy.

Local selection: 97% of new car buyers agree that newspapers
are most helpful as a source of information on local selections.

01 % of used car buyers selected newspapers (print and
online) as their primary information source, more than all other media
combined.

3/4 of all U.S. Adults read a newspaper, print or
online in the past week.170 million adults rely on newspapers.

As Newborn Screening Expands, Parents Need More Help


Parents leave the hos-
pital with a newborn
who looks perfectly
healthy. But a short
time later, their doctor
calls to say that the baby
has had an abnormal
screening-test result and
needs follow-up testing.
With more than four
million American babies
screened every year for a
range of disorders, that
anxiety-producing sce-
nario is becoming more
common. A Wisconsin
nurse-researcher is now
leading an effort to find
a better way to help par-
ents understand com-
plex medical informa-
tion and cope with it
emotionally.
Wisconsin in 1994 be-
came one of the first
states to mandate new-
born screening for cystic
fibrosis (CF), an inherit-
ed chronic disease that
affects the lungs and di-
gestive system of about
30,000 children and
adults in the U.S., ac-
cording to the Cystic Fi-
brosis Foundation. Early
detection and treatment
offer hope for fewer
complications and better
health for affected in-
fants.
Audrey Tluczek, an
assistant professor in the
UW-Madison School of
Nursing, wants to elimi-
nate some of the worry


and stress that accompa-
nies genetic counseling
for CF. She is working
with the Wisconsin Ge-
netic Counseling Con-
sortium (which includes
genetic counselors
throughout the state) to
develop a family-cen-
tered genetic counseling
model for parents of
newborns. The project is
funded by the National
Institutes of Health, the
Institute for Clinical and
Translational Research
(ICTR) at UW, and the
Fraternal Order of the
Eagles.
There's only a three
percent chance of a baby
having CF when a genet-
ic mutation is found, but
that's not much comfort
if parents don't under-
stand it. To have cystic
fibrosis, a child must in-
herit one copy of the de-
fective CF gene (called a
mutation) from each
parent.
"In the case of new-
born screening, parents
usually think they have
perfectly healthy chil-
dren," Tluczek says.
"Then the doctor comes
to them and says, 'Your
infant had an abnormal
newborn screen. You
need to go get an addi-
tional test done.' So,
this is unsolicited, unex-
pected and pretty scary
information that hits


them out of the blue."
Newborn screening
for CF includes DNA
analysis, which can de-
tect not only infants who
actually have CF, but
also carriers those
who have only one de-
fective gene and thus do
not have the disease.
The Wisconsin Newborn
Screening Program tests
for the 23 most common
CF mutations, but there
are more than 1600 po-
tential mutations. So if
only one mutation is
found, there is still a
chance that another mu-
tation is present.
Infants with a muta-
tion need a "sweat test"
to see if the child is just a
carrier or actually has
CF. Parents of a child
with an abnormal screen
will be directed to a test-
ing center for the test,
which measures the
amount of chloride in
sweat. Children with CF
have two to five times
the normal level of chlo-
ride in their sweat; carri-
ers will have normal or
negative results.
During the appoint-
ment, parents also meet
with a genetic counselor
to discuss the test results
and implications for the
parents, their child, and
their extended families.
Understandably, this
is a worrisome experi-


I 4

ence.
"Our research shows a
high percentage of par-
ents have high levels of
depressive symptoms
when they come in for
the sweat test because
they're so worried that
their baby might have
CF," Tluczek says, "so
we decided to develop a
counseling model that
might ease their distress
and help them remem-
ber important genetic in-
formation."


The new model in-
volves assessing parents'
needs for emotional sup-
port and information,
and then tailoring the
counseling to meet the
individual needs of each
family. The study is
currently underway at
American Family Chil-
dren's Hospital, Chil-
dren's Hospital of Wis-
consin in Milwaukee,
and The Marshfield
Clinic in Marshfield,
Wis. Tluczek is docu-


meeting parent satisfac-
tion with the sessions;
how well parents retain
information; and their
level of distress before
and after the initial coun-
seling. Although the re-
sults won't be available
for another year, Tluczek
says parents' early reac-
tions have been positive.
She hopes the new mod-
el will prove useful for
parents dealing with a
wide range of possible
diagnoses.
