Heart Matters


Wouldn't you love to
lighten your load for
2010, especially if it in-
volved no dieting? Be-
fore you get too excited,
I'm not referring to los-
ing those extra pounds
that appeared over the
holidays, but something
that weighs us down all
the same. In Ephesians
4:32, the Bible encour-
ages us to, "Be kind and
compassionate to one
another, forgiving each
other, just as in Christ
God forgave you."
So, is there someone
you are holding a
grudge or feeling of re-
sentment against?
Does a knot form in
your stomach when you
see or even think about
that person? If so, you
are carrying the excess
baggage of unforgive-
ness.
According to Web-
ster's dictionary, the
word forgiveness has
several definitions: 1) to


give up resentment, and
2) to grant relief from
payment of a debt. In
both, the word "forgive"
is a verb that indicates
taking action, implying
that forgiveness is an in-
tentional choice. What
makes this choice diffi-
cult is that when some-
one hurts us, the very
last thing we want to do
is give up our resent-
ment and grant the of-
fender relief, we would
much rather they pay!
While we often cannot
help or immediately
change the way we feel,
we are responsible for
the choices we make and
the actions we take.
Therefore, it is encourag-
ing to remember that
forgiveness is usually
something we "will" be-
fore we "feel."
God calls us to forgive
others because He has
forgiven us through
Christ's death on the
cross. We often refuse to


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

forgive because we think
our offender will get
away with the harm they
have caused, but we
need to understand that
unforgiveness keeps us
chained to not only that
person, but also to the
offense, for as long as we
hold on to it. Ironically,
the offending party may
often be totally unaware
that we are carrying that
burden around! In that
case, we aren't making
them pay at all, but are
we ever suffering! I once
heard someone say that
refusing to forgive is like
drinking poison and ex-
pecting the other person
to die. Not a great idea!
It is important to rec-
ognize that while His
forgiveness is available
to everyone, God only
reconciles Himself to
those who acknowledge
their sin, ask for forgive-
ness and are willing to
change their ways. This
marks the huge differ-
ence between forgive-
ness and reconciliation
and serves as a pattern
for us: we are also to of-
fer forgiveness to every-
one. However, reconcili-
ation requires much
more than an apology, it
requires the offender ac-


knowledging the wrong
and taking steps to make
things right. Many times
we make the mistake of
reconciling without for-
giveness.... we try to pre-
tend nothing happened,
and jump back in with-
out working out a reso-
lution, exposing our-
selves to further pain.
Our tendency to do this
is often because we don't
want to risk the loss of
ending the relationship.
Then, when things go
wrong again, we can just
blame the other person
all over again! We be-
come the victim and
everything wrong in our
life becomes their fault.
It is possible to live our
entire lives stuck in rela-
tionships like this, never
taking responsibility for
our own unforgiveness
and blaming the other
person for everything.
Let me assure you that
it is not hypocrisy to
make the choice to for-
give someone without
"feeling" like you have
forgiven them... make
the choice, and sooner or
later your feelings will
line up (don't give up,
the longer we have with-
held forgiveness, the
longer it may take for


our feelings to change).
Let's make the intention-
al choice to cut ourselves -
free from the useless
burden of unforgive-
ness, and really lighten
our load for the New
Year, because our hearts
matter!

Where: Mayo Com-

Time: Start Arriving
About 11 A.M.
This year's door
prize will be a copy of
AS WE REMEMBER, a
book containing life
stories written by
members of the
Lafayette High School
Class of 1943.
A paragraph from
the story by Catherine
Sessions Howell reads:
"One of my earliest
memories is of Christ-
mas Eve before I was to
be three in January. I
was playing with a
crooked stick near a
pile of burning leaves.
Suddenly my clothes
were on fire and I was
running. My brother,
Lewis, caught me and


rolled me in the sandy
yard to extinguish the
flames. Despite the fact
that I had burns all
over my body-espe-
cially deep ones in my
abdominal region-I
did not see a doctor.
There was no available
doctor within reach
and they really did not
think that I would sur-
vive. The neighbors
gathered to help my
mother.....they mixed
baking soda with cane
syrup and spread it on
my wounds. I can still
remember the shock of
that cold mixture going
on my painful burns.
Later it caused a sooth-
ing, partial relief from
the pain. As I grew old-
er almost all of my
scars faded except for
deep permanent ones
in my midriff area."

History of
Today it is primarily
popped in small bags in
the microwave, but pop-
corn has been around
well before individuals
had modern conve-
niences or even electrici-
ty for that matter.
History tells us that the
variety of corn used for
popping has been
around for more than
5,000 years. It is believed
by archaeologists and re-
searchers to be the oldest
of a group of five sweet
corns: Indian corn, pod
corn, popcorn, sweet
corn and field corn.
While popcorn originat-
ed in Mexico, it quickly
spread with explorers to
Asia, Europe, and even-
tually North America.
In its early days, pop-
corn was thrown on siz-
zling hot stones around
the fire, and the game
was to catch the popped
pieces as they scattered.
Eventually "poppers"
were invented, and an-
cient poppers made of
soapstone, pottery and
metal have been found in
Indian excavation sites.
These pots had tri-pod
legs and would sit direct-
ly in the fire to pop the
corn.
Popcorn was enjoyed
by many cultures. Some
learned to dress it with
oil for added flavor. Ear-
ly American colonists

a Popular
put sugar on the popped
corn and enjoyed it as
breakfast. This is be-
lieved to be a precursor
to the puffed corn cereals
enjoyed today.
Eventually popcorn
became synonymous
with the "big screen," as
a snack enjoyed during
theater movies. Howev-
er, when televisions
were invented and peo-
ple stayed at home for
entertainment, popcorn
enthusiasm waned for
years. It wasn't until the
invention of the mi-
crowave oven, and the
convenience it offered
individuals to enjoy pop-
corn while watching TV,
that popcorn sales re-
bounded.

Remember the saying,
If you don't have any-
thing good to say, don't
say anything at all?" It
is a pretty good saying;
one you might well pay
attention to and one
that would probably
save a lot of people un-
necessary damage to
their reputations.
When in church, and
someone grabs you to
pull you aside and be-
gins telling you some-
thing in a hushed tone
PN" by beginning with, "Do
g you know what I heard
S about so-and-so...?" -
you'd probably be bet-
ter off to tell the person,
"I don't want to hear
what you have to say."
"These six things doth
the Lord hate: yea, sev-
o en are an abomination
4 unto him: A proud
t look, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed in-
nocent blood, An heart
that deviseth wicked
Od imaginations, feet that
be swift in running to

the *


and he that soweth dis-
cord among brethren,"
(Proverbs 6:16-19). The
Bible says God HATES
those who pass along
mis-information that
stirs up trouble. He
hates those that sow
discord! And every
church has them; those
that ruin the fellowship
of the church; some-
times leading to a
church split and/or a
church completely clos-
ing down. That is the
reason He hates them -
He loves His Church
"Husbands, love
your wives, even as
Christ also loved the
church, and gave him-
self for it;" (Ephesians
5:25). He who gave
Himself for the church
naturally doesn't want
anything to defile that
church! Gossipers,
whisperers, backbiters,
all those that would
sow discord, regardless
of what you might call
them are hated of God
because of the damage
they do to His church;
to the unity of His peo-
ple (" Behold, how good
and how pleasant it is
for brethren to dwell to-
gether in unity!" Psalm
133:1).
The words of a song
say something to the ef-
fect, "God doesn't
know a person He does-
n't love." But notice,
there are those that He
hates as made evident
by Proverbs 6:16-19.
When one sows discord
he can do a lot of dam-
age to the reputation of
another. When you
hear something you had
better be sure you get
your facts straight and
even when you get all


your facts straight they
don't necessarily need
to be repeated. Maybe
you need to suggest to
the person that came to
you with the story that
instead of coming to
you he go to the other
person. "Moreover if
thy brother shall tres-
pass against thee, go
and tell him his fault be-
tween thee and him
ALONE: if he shall
hear thee, thou hast
gained thy brother. But
if he will not hear thee,
then take with thee one
or two more, that in the
mouth of two or three
witnesses every word
may be established.
And if he shall neglect
to hear them, tell it unto
the church: but if he ne-
glect to hear the church,
let him be unto thee as
an heathen man and a
publican," (Matthew
18:15-17). There is a
right way to handle
your differences don't
go and spue your ven-
om to anyone who will
listen, anywhere you
can, but do it the Bible
way; the only way that
is pleasing to the Lord.

Free Lunch
Are you 60? I am, and I eat lunch free. And the
people who serve it are friendly. The other day a
friend of mine passed and I would have missed the
funeral if I hadn't heard someone at lunch mention
his passing.
Rob Crankshaw, Phd., Project Manager at the Ad-
vent Christian Village has come all the way down
here voluntarily and has talked to us about things
that happen to our bodies as we age.
Once he discussed interactions between us and
our grown children.
Pam Lynch painted a beautiful mountain scene
right there for us.
Occasionally someone comes and will take our
blood pressure.
This is what you do:
Call SREC at 294-2202 and tell them you would
like to come for lunch and then just go about 11:15.

SRWMD riding trails featured
in statewide equestrian guide
Several horseback riding trails located on
properties owned by the Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD) are featured in a
statewide equestrian guide.
Florida Equestrian Trails, A Guide to Florida's
Top Equestrian Trails highlights more than 30 rid-
ing trails located on public and private lands
throughout Florida. The SRWMD properties in-
cluded in the publication are the R.O. Ranch
Equestrian Park, the Mattair Springs Tract and
Devil's Hammock Wildlife Management Area.
The three properties located in Lafayette, Suwan-
nee and Levy counties respectively provide some
of the best trail riding opportunities in the SR-
WMD.
The brochure was produced by Visit Florida.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protec-
tion's Office of Greenways & Trails and Division
of Recreation and Parks facilitated production of
the guide. Copies have been distributed to parks
and trails throughout the state.
"We are pleased to be recognized for our riding
trails," said Edwin McCook, land management
specialist for SRWMD. "It is our hope that the
publication will encourage more people to take
advantage of our public lands."
To view the equestrian guide visit www.my-
suwanneeriver.com and click on "SRWMD riding
trails featured in statewide equestrian guide" and
"Equestrian Trails Brochure." For more informa-
tion about riding trails on SRWMD lands visit

Grab and Go Snacks


We are all often on the move
and need some grab and go
snacks that our family will eat.
Here are some good ones that
parents have shared and are
easy to carry and can be eaten in
the car:


' --A


Mandarin oranges, apple-
sauce or peaches (in 4-packs) ,
Any flavor cheerios or oth- Priscilla Cashman
er whole grain cereal
Whole fruits like bananas, plums or peaches
Granola bars (watch out for the sugary ones)
Grapes, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, sliced
apples
Sliced cheese or cheese sticks
Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches in a baggie

We all need healthy eating habits for our family.
Hopefully they will pass it on to their family. Good
eating habits at an early age are very important and
will help the cost of health care in the future. Every-
one needs to get on board. For more information,

Safety is without a
doubt one of the biggest
and most pressing is-
sues to consider when
purchasing a new or
used vehicle.
1. A good first step -
even before consulting
consumer reports on
safe vehicles is to talk
to friends and family
about which cars on the
market they feel are the
safest based on their
personal experiences. If
no one can provide
sound advice, check
message boards online
for information pertain-
ing to automobile safe-
ty.
2. Next, begin comb-
ing consumer safety re-
ports and newspaper ar-
ticles for information on
any automobiles of in-
terest. Pay particular at-
tention to crash data
when doing this re-
search.
3. After deciding on a
particular vehicle, go
and check out the car in
person. Inspect the car
closely and be sure the
vehicle has front and
side air bags, the most
up-to-date seatbelt fea-


tures, superior traction
control and anti lock
brakes, to name a few
important safety fea-
tures.
4. The weight of the
car is very important.
Heavier vehicles tend to
fare better in crash tests
than lighter vehicles, as
lighter vehicles tend to
tip over more easily.
5. Take the car for a
test drive. Focus on how
the vehicle handles and
how quickly and easily
it accelerates and stops.
Test the seatbelts to
make sure they are
working properly. If
possible, bring someone
along for a second opin-
ion. This could be a
salesperson, spouse or
friend. Many times peo-
ple become intensely fo-
cused on buying a par-
ticular car based solely
on its aesthetic appeal.
Try to keep in mind that
what matters most is
how safe the car is, not
the look of it. Having
someone in the passen-
ger seat when test dri-
ving a car should help
the buyer keep this in
mind.

Leading Alzheimer's researcher joins UF to fight brain diseases


A leader in the fight
against brain diseases
and in drug discovery to
help Alzheimer's patients
has joined the University
of Florida College of
Medicine, interim dean
Michael Good, M.D., an-
nounced.
Todd Golde, M.D.,
Ph.D., formerly the chair-
man of the department of
neuroscience at Mayo
Clinic in Jacksonville, will
create and direct the Col-
lege of Medicine's new
Center for Transitional
Research in Neurodegen-
erative Disease, Good
said. He will lead an ef-
fort to develop treatments
and diagnostics for
Alzheimer's disease, de-
mentias, Parkinson's dis-
ease and other neurode-
generative diseases.
"Dementia impacts our
lives with such devasta-
tion, and it is estimated
that it will touch nearly a
half a million patients
and their families in Flori-
da alone in the coming
year," Good said. "Dr.
Golde's recruitment to
UF strengthens our team
with one of the brightest


minds working in this
field. He and we are de-
termined to beat this foe."
Golde's work comple-
ments existing efforts by
UF neuroscientists, neu-
rologists and McKnight
Brain Institute re-
searchers, according to
David Guzick, M.D.,
Ph.D., UF's senior vice
president for health af-
fairs and president of the
UF & Shands Health Sys-
tem, who strongly en-
couraged Golde's recruit-
ment.
"We're interested in
building a world-class re-
search program, and dr.
Golde has demonstrated
he can build a team fo-
cused in an important
area, in this case
Alzheimer's disease and
neurodegenerative dis-
eases," Guzick said. "This
is a very opportune time
with the opening of the
Biomedical Sciences
Building to put the re-
sources of such a state-of-
the-art building in the
hands of someone who
can use them so produc-
tively."

projects initiated
through the local United
Way's original 2004
HUD McKinney-Vento
homeless assistance ap-
plication. The two pro-
jects receiving renewal
funding include United
Way of Suwannee Val-
ley's implementation of
the Homeless Manage-
ment Information Sys-
tem (HMIS) and Volun-
teers of America of
Florida's scattered-site
supported housing
units.
United Way of
Suwannee Valley re-
ceived a one-year re-
newal of $32,146 for
HMIS implementation.
"HMIS is a HUD man-
dated Web-based sys-
tem which collects data
for aggregate report-
ing," said Jenn Sawyer,
United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley HMIS coordi-
nator.
Jennifer Lee, United
Way of Suwannee Val-
ley homeless coordina-
tor, said the system pro-
vides an additional ben-
efit beyond data collec-
tion.
"The system allows
homeless service
providers who are par-
ticipants in the homeless
coalition to enter client
data to provide for com-
munity coordinated case
management," Lee said.
"If a client receives ser-
vices at one agency, oth-
er agencies serving the
same client can be aware
of the various services
the client is receiving
and provide reinforce-
ment of the case plan
and additional services
supplementing those


National Certified

MEDICAL

SECRETARY


provided by other agen-
cies."
The two United Way
staff members share re-
sponsibility for local
HMIS management.
Sawyer monitors HMIS
for agency entry of qual-
ity data and advises the
agencies appropriately,
while Lee focuses pre-
dominantly on aggre-
gate data for grant and
HUD reporting purpos-
es.
While HUD requires
local homeless coalitions
to implement a home-
less information man-
agement system for
homeless service
providers to receive
grant funds, the local
United Way minimized
expenses associated
with this requirement,
so funds would be avail-
able to provide services.
"Recognizing the very
small amount of funds
available to our four-
county homeless coali-
tion catchment area,
when we implemented
the system locally, our
United Way coordinated
with United Way of
Northeast Florida to
participate in the North-
east Florida Information
Network HMIS system,"
said Rita Dopp, execu-
tive director of United
Way of Suwannee Val-
ley.
United Way sought to
meet the HUD require-
ments in the most cost
efficient manner possi-
ble. Minimizing the
costs of the HMIS imple-
mentation makes avail-
able the remaining HUD
funds for direct client
services. Participating in
the neighboring United
Way's system results in

United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley's HUD appli-
cation included a Volun-
teers of America of Flori-
da project, which re-
ceived a one-year renew-
al of $125,789 for scat-
tered-site supported
housing for chronically
homeless veterans. The
grant provides for 11
units.
"Our local United Way
continues to focus on un-
met community needs
and opportunities to ad-
dress these needs," said
Ayanna Sampson, a
member of the United
Way of Suwannee Valley
Board of Directors.
Sampson, in her capacity
as the VA Medical Cen-
ter health care for home-
less veterans case man-
ager, is also a member of
the Homeless Services
Network of Suwannee
Valley, which functions
as a committee of the lo-
cal United Way. "Only
as a result of a successful
Homeless Management
Information System im-
plementation are home-
less continuum of care
agencies eligible to apply
for state or federal grants
to assist those who are
homeless or at risk of
homelessness."
Jim Moses, president of
the United Way of
Suwannee Valley Board
of Directors, acknowl-
edged our local United
Way is somewhat unique


in the amount of grant
funds it secures for the
benefit of community
agency services.
"Our United Way ex-
pands our community re-
sources by seeking grant
funds in support of tar-
geted community impact
areas," he said. "While it
may not be uncommon
for a local United Way to
seek grant funds, the
amount of grant funds
leveraged by our United
Way in comparison to its
community fundraising
campaign is unusual.
Our board of directors is
very proud of these ac-
complishments."
United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley is a communi-
ty impact and fundrais-
ing organization which,
utilizing volunteers on all
levels, advances the com-
mon good by identifying
unmet community needs
and seeking to alleviate
those needs through
United Way of Suwannee
Valley initiatives and the
funding of 24 affiliated
health and human ser-
vice agencies.
United Way of Suwan-
nee Valley serves as the
lead agency for the
Homeless Services Net-
work of Suwannee Val-
ley, which serves the
counties of Columbia,
Suwannee, Lafayette and
Hamilton. The network
includes agencies and in-
dividuals interested in
the services available to
those who are homeless
or at risk of homeless-
ness.

B: Be mindful of your risk tolerance. What kind
Every investment strategy has a level of risk. Be specific
Generally speaking, the higher the risk of losing
money, the higher the expected return. Less risk
translates into a smaller return. The U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) recommends that you look at these
factors to help you determine your risk tolerance:
Financial goals how much you want to accumulate.

options right now? Take less risk if you cannot afford to lose
your investment or have its value fall.I
Time horizon how long can you leave your money invested?
If you will need your money in one year, consider taking less

C: Choose an investment strategy.
Once you understand your goals and level of risk tolerance, choose
a strategy to achieve those targets. There are three basic strategies
involved in investing: protecting your money, earning income and
growing more money. The best strategy is a balanced combination
of the threeBasics
Protection. If you've saved enough for a house or car and you want
to be sure the money will be there when you need it, a savings
account or money market securities will keep that money safe.
account or money market securities will keep that money safe.


Basic Tools You Can Use
There are a number of online tools to help you decide
how much you'll need to save for various needs.
* The Ballpark Estimate, a single-page worksheet
created by the American Savings Education
Council, can help you calculate what you'll need
to save each year for retirement. You can find it at
http://www.choosetosave.org.
m The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has a
college savings calculator, at http://apps.finra.org.
m The Social Security Administration has a benefits
calculator to estimate your potential benefit
amounts. www.ssa.gov.
* The Securities and Exchange Commission has a
roadmap tool that will help you work through the
basics of investing for the future. www.sec.gov.
* This aggregator site has multiple respected sources,
including CNN Money, TIME and Allianz. It offers
a variety of calculators, tools and links to other
sites for basic information on personal finance:

Income. If you want a predictable stream of income, investing in
bonds or bond mutual funds provide income from the interest
payments.
Growth. Investing in companies through stock mutual funds can
help grow your money, but this depends on the stock perform-
ance, and is usually considered a long-term option.
"Finding the right balance is key to reaching your financial goals,"
said Johnson. "A financial professional can help you find a balance
that allows you to accumulate enough assets to retire the way you
want and have enough income to maintain a comfortable lifestyle."
Johnson says that one simple way to help maximize retirement
funding is to take advantage of retirement contributions that get fully
matched by your company.
Another option is an annuity. "An annuity is a contract between
you and an insurance company," said Johnson. "In exchange for your
premium payment, the insurance company guarantees you income,
starting immediately or at some time in the future." This potential
income can be a supplement to Social Security.
There are generally two types of annuities, fixed and variable.
With a fixed annuity, the insurance company guarantees a minimum


rate of interest during the time your annuity is accumulating. You
are also guaranteed the option for periodic payments over either a
definite period of time (such as 20 years) or indefinite, such as your
lifetime.
Both fixed and variable annuities have two phases, one in which
they help build your assets and another in which they help turn those
assets into a stream of income. ( Ir.. i...,,,. the risk with a variable
annuity, whereas a fixed annuity is guaranteed.
"With variable annuities, you have the chance to buy additional
protection benefits that offer more guarantees," said Johnson. "In
very basic terms, optional riders for income, accumulation and death
benefits, guarantee a certain amount of payment for an additional fee,
regardless of the current value of your initial investment."

The Bottom Line. You owe it to yourself and to your family to plan
for your future. "Financial planning is a long-term commitment a
marathon that will evolve over time. So it's never too early to start
and it's not as hard as you might think," said Johnson. A professional
financial planner can help you work through the ABCs and get you
on your way to a more secure retirement.

grants. It's going go be a
great boost for us and
very beneficial to the Col-
lege of Medicine and the
Health Science Center."
Notterpek expects ad-
ditional recruitments will
further grow olde's re-
search group and the
neuroscience depart-
ment.
"He is a good fit for our
faculty, students and
postdocs," she said. For
example, Golde's work
dovetails with UF neuro-
scientist and MBI re-
searcher David Borchelt's
studies of amyloid beta
protein, believed to con-


tribute to the accumula-
tion of "Brain plaque" in
Alzheimer's patients.
Writing in Nature in
2008, Golde helped ex-
plain the molecular inter-
play between amyloid
beta protein and a class of
Therapeutic agents
known as gamma-secre-
tase modulators, or
GSMs, now being tested
in patients with
Alzheimer's disease.
Golde's group discov-
ered GSMs work by re-
ducing production of
longer, toxic pieces of the
amyloid beta protein,
while enhancing produc-
tion of shorter amyloid
strands that may actually


thwart Alzheimer's dis-
ease.
"He is a superb
Alzheimer's disease and
neuroscience researcher
- one of the best and
most respected in the
world," said Dennis A.
Steindler, executive di-
rector of the McKnight
Brain Institute. "He is
not only going to com-
plement our existing
programs, he will create
new ones that will en-
able us to target all neu-
rological disorders."
His experience in drug
discovery and expertise
in transforming laborato-
ry discoveries into clini-
cal therapies and diag-


nostics will be welcome,

Ashizawa, M.D., chair-
man of the department of
