Supt. Lashley speaks
with Rotarians about
federal grants, FCAT

Other topics of dis-
cussion were budget,
which seems to be a Tom Lashley
challenge for everyone
in today's economy. He
said they worked for weeks on various ways
to make the budget work.
He mentioned the Race to the Top program,
which has billions of dollars that states can
apply for, but he also stated that there are lots
of strings attached to the federal monies, and
that at this time they don't really know all of
the strings. They have, however, started the
process of applying, and if they decide later to
drop out they can do so.
There was also much discussion on the
FCAT and some changes that could possibly
be taking place in the near future such as a
new high school grading platform which
would count 1/2 of the FCAT and 1/2 from
other factors, instead of totally relying on
FCAT scoring. It appears that the state might
be trying to move away from reliance on
FCAT scores only.
Lashley said he feels it is a good possibility
that with some of the changes, Lafayette could
indeed be an "A" high school. This would
mean that both elementary and high school
would be ranked "A" schools.
A few more upcoming changes or issues in
the works were increased high school gradua-
tion, performance pay, new high school grad-
ing system, classroom size reduction and pro-
jection figures as revenue.

Heart Matters


Feeling like a com-
plete failure, a beautiful
young mom responded
to a parenting class I was
teaching with tears. Af-
ter hearing her story, I
related to those feelings,
without a doubt, being a
parent is hands-down
the hardest job on the
planet! With two grown
sons and a teenage
daughter under our belt,
you would think my
husband and I would
feel some confidence in
knowing what we are
doing, but many days we
don't! In fact, it is sur-
prising to learn how
many parents feel inade-
quate and even helpless
in raising their children.
Most Dads and Moms
admit to losing sleep
over the impact their fail-

ures and past mistakes
will have on their chil-
dren's future. During
these times we need to
remind ourselves that as
parents, we can't change
the past, the future is yet
unwritten, and that
God's purposes for our
children's lives can out-
weigh our mistakes.
Authors Dennis and
Barbara Rainey tell the
story of "Wrong Way
Riegels," a football play-
er for the University of
California in the 1929
Rose Bowl. Seems that
Riegels made one of the
most famous mistakes in
the history of football
when he picked up a
fumble and ran for more
than sixty yards-in the
wrong direction!! He
was finally tackled by
his own teammate just
inside the 10-yard line.
At half-time, his coach
gave a rousing pep talk
to the discouraged team
and declared, "Same
team that started the first
half, will start the second


half." This meant
Riegels would be start-
ing. The other players
headed for the field
without him as he ex-
plained, "Coach, I can-
not go out there, I'm hu-
miliated." The coach
looked Riegels in the
face and said, "This
game is only half over.
now get out there and
play the rest of it."
Those words are
worth remembering to-
day for us parents.
Maybe you have a pre-
teen or teenager and
think, "This game is al-
most over-in just a few
years they will be gone.
Or your oldest may be 21
or even 29, and you look
back to recount and re-
gret your mistakes, de-
ciding the game is over.
Hear the words of Gala-
tians 6:9:
"Let us not grow
weary in doing good, for
at the proper time we
will reap a harvest if we
do not give up."
Do you feel like a fail-


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

ure as a parent? Accept-
ing responsibility for the
mistakes we have made
is a great way to ensure
the future looks different
than the past, and never
underestimate the power
of a simple, heartfelt
apology. (I have said,
"I'm sorry" to my three
children more times than
I can count!) Sometimes
we may need to accept
our older children's
choices as their own and
realize they have differ-
ent dreams for their life
than we do. As our chil-
dren grow up, our con-
trol grows less, but our
influence can remain if
we keep the lines of com-
munication open. Ask
God to encourage you
not to grow weary in do-
ing good as a parent,
your children need you!

Suwannee River


Stock Dog Trials


The Suwannee River
Stock Dog Trails will be
held locally at the 'Cul-
leymont in Dixie' Farm
on Highway 349 in the
northeast corner of Dixie
County on Feb. 5, 6, & 7,
2010. This will be the
third annual stock dog
trials to be held at the
farm in Dixie County.
"For hundreds of
years, stock dog trials
have been held in Scot-
land and England where
sheep dogs, primarily
Border Collies and their
handlers exhibit their
skills in handling sheep
through an assigned ob-
stacle course. A trial is de-
signed to test all of the
skills a good ranch or
farm dog needs to per-
form its daily work. To
reach the level of training
and skill required to suc-
cessfully compete in a tri-
al, takes years of work on
the part of the dog and
the handler.
The team effort is
demonstrated as the part-
ners (handlers and dogs)
not only understand each
other perfectly but out-
guess and outwit unfa-
miliar sheep as they en-
tice them through the ob-
stacle course."
Spectators always en-
joy watching these fasci-
nating dogs compete
while under total control
at distances of 260 to 500
yards through obstacle
after obstacle. The idea is
for the dog, with the as-
sistance of the handler
controlling it by voice or
whistle, to flank right,
left, stop, walk up or
make whatever move
needed to move these
three sheep through the
course.
The handler stays at the
post to command the dog
through the ten minutes
allotted until he reaches
the pen when he can
leave the post to help the
dog. The ultimate result
is to put the sheep
through the course in a
quiet and controlled
manner causing the
sheep very little anxiety.
Gripping or biting the
sheep in any way results
in immediate disqualifi-
cation.
These trials are qualify-
ing trials for the United
States Border Collie Han-
dlers Association Nation-
al Finals and the Georgia
Stock Dog Association Fi-
nals. The Open or highest


level of classes is held on
Saturday and Sunday.
Younger dogs will com-
pete in the lower level
classes on Friday. A Unit-
ed States Border Collie
Assoc. Nursery class will
also be held on each of
the three days of compe-
tition. The judges for
these will be Jim Murphy
from Portland, Ontario
Canada, and Carol Cam-
pion from Hammond,
CT.
Competitors are ex-
pected from several
states with many of the
competitors coming from
Florida and Georgia. Mr.
Fred Moses, a local dairy-
man from Branford will
be one of the competitors.
Some of the dogs compet-
ing were imported from
Scotland, Wales, Ireland,
and/or England.
Among the competi-
tors are our own Richard
and Cheryl Jagger
Williams from 'Culley-
mont at Dixie' farm
where they raise and
train their own Border
Collies. Cheryl and
Richard are presently na-
tionally ranked in the top
ten in the U.S. Border
Collie Handlers Associa-
tion. One of the dogs
Cheryl will be running in
the open competition is
named Spot. Spot was
imported from Ireland
and was ranked eighth in
the country last year.
Spot also won the North-
east Border Collie Associ-
ation Finals. Richard will
be running Lass who
won the Northeast Bor-
der Collie Handler's As-
sociation's High Points
award for 2007.
Sheep dog trialing and
herding in general is one
of the fastest growing
sports in the dog world
today. Trials are spring-
ing up all over the county
with more and more peo-
ple competing. The sport
can be equally enjoyed by
the old or young, man or
woman, from any walk
of life whatever their pro-
fession.
The Border Collie is a
thoroughbred of the
herding dogs and the dog
most often seen compet-
ing at the large herding
trials though the trials are
open to any breed of dog.
The Border Collie is en-
tirely bred for its intelli-
gence and their herding
ability. The fact that
many of these dogs are


also pretty is purely inci-
dental. They truly are a
marvel to watch and will
be enjoyed by the whole
family.
Bring you lawn chairs
and enjoy the day! Call
352-542-0347 for more in-
formation.
On each of the three
days, Feb. 5, 6, & 7, Hatch
Bend Baptist Church
volunteers will be sell-
ing breakfast & lunch
items to benefit the
Hatch Bend Baptist
Church Youth Mission
Trip Fund. The youth
are planning to attend
MFuge, a week-long
missionary program cre-
ated by the Southern
Baptist Convention. The
Youth will work with
missionaries, pastors
and local churches in
Charleston, SC during
our Summer 2010 mis-
sion trip.
Please come out and
watch the dog trials, and
enjoy breakfast or lunch
in support of our Youth
Group. Items for sale
will include breakfast
sandwiches, sausage
gravy & biscuit, coffee
and juice, hamburgers,
hot dogs, chili, pulled
pork sandwiches, chips,
and baked goods. Come
out and enjoy the dog
trials, good food, and
help send the youth of
Hatch Bend Baptist
church on their mission
trip to MFuge.



Seeds from

"Father," cried a boy,
"the rubbish is on fire!"
"Put a hose on it," he
shouted.
But the fire kept burn-
ing, and he asked, "Did
you put the hose on it?"
"Yes," said the boy,
"but it burned too."
The father didn't make
it plain.
But our Lord made this
plain. He said, "I am the
way, the truth and the
life: no man cometh unto
the Father but by Me."
He's not a way, but the
only way.
Jesus alone is the way
to God. In Him alone we
have access to God. He
alone can lead us into the
presence of God without
fear or shame.
Come to God through
Him, won't you?


3A DWA


IS EVERYTHING RELATIVE?


David H. Matier, Doctor of Pastoral
Counseling dmatier@windstream.net

Einstein's Theory of Relativity
was a theory of science, having to
do with the speed of light in a vac-
uum, mathematical forms of
physics, mass and energy, etc. He
never meant for the term "relative"
to be applied to ethics and yet in
our day we have a whole generation of
people, including Christian people,
who claim to go by the teachings of the
Bible claiming, "Everything is relative;
nothing is black, or white." The word
"abomination" is seldom heard in our
modern world of relativism where
everything is considered relative.
But the Bible tells us that there are
practices that are definitely wrong and
the choice is not left up to you; God
has already ruled on it in His Word -
you just need to listen: God's Word
tells us that women are not to dress to
look like men and men are not to dress
to look like women. "The woman shall
not wear that which pertains unto a
man, neither shall a man put on a
woman's garment: for all that do so
are abomination unto the Lord thy
God." A woman doesn't have to wear
a skirt all the time but God said it is
wrong for her to dress to purposely
look like a man and it is wrong for a
man to be a cross dresser! No "relativ-
ity" here.
Human sacrifice is forbidden!
"There shall not be found among you
any one that maketh his son or his
daughter to pass through the fire..."
(Deuteronomy 18:10). In other words
you are not to use your children as hu-
man sacrifices to God or any other
god. God says, "Don't do it!"
God's Word says it is an abomina-
tion to use tarot cards, the Ouija board,
seek advice from spiritualist, witches,
etc. "...or that useth divination, or an
observer of times, or an enchanter, or a
witch, or a charmer, or a consulter
with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a
necromancer. For all that do these
things are an abomination unto the
Lord:" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). God
did not leave any room for relativism.
He didn't leave you guessing! THERE
IS A RIGHT AND A WRONG!


"And the man that
committeth adultery
with another man's wife,
even he that committeth
adultery with his neigh-
bor's wife, the adulterer
and the adulteress shall
surely be put to death,"
(Leviticus 20:10). "Adul-
tery," a sin that you
laugh at when it is so freely talked
about on the sitcoms and yet God's
Word said it was worthy of death.
Why? Because the relationship of a
man and his wife is a picture of the re-
lationship of Christ and the church -
"Husbands, love your wives, even as
Christ also loved the church, and gave
himself for it; that he might sanctify
and cleanse it with the washing of wa-
ter by the word...For this cause shall a
man leave his father and mother, and
shall be joined unto his wife, and they
two shall be one flesh. This is a great
mystery; but I speak concerning
Christ and the church," (Ephesians
5:25, 26, 31, 32). Jesus took it a step
further saying, "Ye have heard that it
was said by them of old time, Thou
shalt not commit adultery: But I say
unto you, That whosoever looketh on
a woman to lust after her hath com-
mitted adultery with her already in
his heart," (Matthew 5:27, 28). And
we can see from the Bible that the
practices of gays and lesbians is no rel-
ative matter either. "Thou shalt not lie
with mankind, as with womankind; it
is an abomination," (Leviticus 18:22).
God's Word condemns these practices
and so many more. But so many say
you can't tell others they can't do
such-and-such because he/she must
make his/her own choice. Yes, but
you, as a Christian and a student of
the Word of God have an obligation to
set forth the TRUTH. Jesus said,
"Sanctify them through thy truth:
THY WORD IS TRUTH," (John
17:17).
Everyone reading this message
knows people involved in sin. Don't
be afraid to confront your loved ones
when the opportunity arises because it
is wrong but you must do it in
LOVE. Check your motive for con-
fronting them.

The local MOAA is
made up of former or re-
tired military officers, he
said.
Nationally, the organiza-
tion consists of "over
370,000 members from
every branch of service,"
and is considered "a pow-
erful force for speaking for
a strong national defense
and representing the inter-
ests of military officers at
every stage of their careers.
MOAA is also the leading
voice on compensation and
benefit matters for the mil-
itary community," accord-
ing to the release.
The Suwannee Valley
chapter currently has about
35 members who attend
regular meetings each
month with their spouses,
Casto said.
Scouring Suwannee, Co-
lumbia and even reaching
as far as Baker County, the
MOAA hopes to meet its
goal by the end of 2010.
Last year alone, the local
chapter added nine new
members, Casto said.
According to its press re-
lease, "MOAA's current
legislative and benefit pri-
orities include: ensuring
TRICARE/Tricare for life
benefits are retained under
health care reform; increas-
ing military manpower lev-


els to ease deployment
strains on the force; linking
the GI Bill benefit amount
to the cost of four-year pub-
lic college and improving
Reserve GI Bill benefits;
upgrading retirement and
health coverage for mobi-
lized Guard and Reserve
members and their families,
consistent with increasing
service demand upon them;
improved care and support
for serve members wound-
ed in the war on terror; and
improved support for fami-
lies of deployed service
members."
The area MOAA cur-
rently performs volunteer
work at the V.A. Hospital
in Lake City and through
the deeds of the Volunteers
of America group, Casto
said.
During this decade,
MOAA helped secure a cu-
mulative 41 percent pay
raise for military members
on active duty. MOAA has
also worked successfully
to improve benefits for
military survivors and dis-
abled retirees.
Officials say, the "local
military community has
the opportunity to be part
of this formidable force for
positive change."

Pierce Kelley


P.S. of Cedar Key
asks, "I recently moved
to this area and rented a
two bedroom apartment
where my wife and I and
our young son live.
Everything was fine until
the cold snap hit last
month. There is no cen-
tral heat. When I men-
tioned to our landlord
how cold it was in the
apartment he provided
two space heaters, both
of which are electric, but
the temperature barely
got above 60 degrees
during the day and it
was in the 40s at night
and in the morning. He
refused to do anything
more about it and said
that we rented the
premises "as is." He says
he doesn't have to do
anything more for us.
Can he get away with
that?
Dear P.S.;
NO, he cannot. Per
Florida Statute 83.51 a
landlord MUST provide
FUNCTIONING, mean-
ing adequate, heating fa-
cilities during the winter
months, which is to in-
clude hot water. Further-
more, the two space
heaters he provided
could be extremely dan-
gerous to you and your
family and you should
be very careful in using
them. In fact, THE most
dangerous appliance in
homes throughout
America is a space
heater. The U.S. Con-
sumer Product Safety
Commission estimates
that 21,800 fires are
caused EVERY year by
space heaters and hun-
dreds of people die as a
result of carbon monox-
ide poisoning due to gas,
kerosene or propane
space heaters, too.
Space heaters are in-
tended to provide a
TEMPORARY, not per-
manent, heat source. All
space heaters can be
deadly. Since you are re-
quired to use them to
have any heat in your
apartment, here is a list
of things you should
NEVER do:
1. NEVER leave a
portable heater running
unattended;
2. NEVER use exten-
sion cords with electrical
space heaters;
3. NEVER leave a
heater on when you go to
sleep at night;
4. NEVER place a
heater closer than three
feet from walls, bedding,
clothing, pets and peo-
ple.
5. NEVER use a gas,
propane or kerosene
space heater indoors,
and that includes a gas
oven, even for a short pe-
riod of time;
6. NEVER use a
charcoal grill indoors, ei-
ther for cooking or for
heat;
7. NEVER dry
socks, clothes or gloves

on a heater;.
The foregoing list is
not intended to be com-
plete, but that gives you
an idea of how danger-
ous space heaters can be.
I, personally, know of
three people who died
due to carbon monoxide
poisoning from the use
of a space heater. One of
the better tennis players
in the United States, Vi-
tas Gerulitis, died about
ten years or so because of
that.
Whenever a fuel is
burned to produce heat,
carbon monoxide is pro-
duced. Carbon Monox-
ide is a deadly, odorless,
colorless gas that is not
easily detected. You can
buy a carbon monoxide
detector for a relatively
small amount of money
and it is considered a ne-
cessity in many homes.
A smoke detector
and/or a fire alarm is re-
quired, but that will not
detect carbon monoxide.
Furthermore, though
electric space heaters are
safer than gas, kerosene,
wood or propane space
heaters, you should
know something about
your electric service. A
few years ago a major
fire occurred at the
Kennedy Homes Apart-
ment Complex in
Gainesville causing 172
families to lose their
homes, due to an inade-
quate electrical system.
Most space heaters use
1500 watts on the high
setting and 750 on low.
What kind of service do
you have? What circuit
are you putting the space
heater on? How much of
a load is on that circuit?
What happens if the cir-
cuit "breaks" and the
power goes out? You
should know the an-
swers to those questions
BEFORE something bad
happens.
Now, if your landlord
is as arrogant and insen-
sitive as you have indi-
cated he may be difficult
to deal with. I suggest
you familiarize yourself
with Florida Statute 83,
which is the Landlord-
Tenant statute. Any and
all complaints you have
should be put in writing
and you should keep a
copy of what you send.
A landlord can NOT
evict you if you com-
plain. A landlord can
NOT raise your rent be-
cause you complain. A
landlord can NOT termi-
nate the lease in response
to a complaint. That is
called RETALIATORY
EVICTION and that is
specifically prohibited
by Florida Statute 83.64.
If a landlord fails to
comply with his obliga-
tions you are entitled to
break the lease and move
elsewhere, after giving
him an opportunity to
correct the problem.
Staying warm during the
winter is a necessity and
you have a RIGHT to ex-
pect that from your land-
lord. You may also be en-
titled to damages, such
as a reduction in the rent.
You are not in the
wrong. Sometimes you
have to stand up for
yourself and assert your
rights. Justice is not auto-
matic.

your question, P.S., and I
hope that you and your
family get adequate heat
immediately, either that
or the warm months get
here and we'll worry
about adequate cooling.
Unfortunately, central

islature, though there are
times when we feel that it
should be.

The

Annual

Old

Timer's

Reunion
(If you remember Mr.
Birchfield's drug store,
you're an old timer.)
Here is another excerpt
from AS WE REMEM-
BER, a book by the LHS
1943 graduating class,
which is this year's door
prize. Marinda Fowler
Goodman writes:
"Mondays and Tues-
days were wash days
and we had many tubs to
be filled with water. The
wash pot would be fired
up to boil the white
clothes until they were
white as could be. Near-
by stood a large block of
wood with a stick that
was used to beat the
men's work clothes to
get them clean. Mother
made her soap used for
washing clothes. The
word 'housecleaning'
does not mean the same
now as then. On that
day, mattresses and pil-
lows were carried out-
side, placed on a rack,
and sunned all day. The
bedsteads were dusted
and cleaned. The floors
were scrubbed (not
mopped) with a heavy
scrub made of corn
shucks."

The filming on the

more than six weeks. The
camera crew stayed at lo-

Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics 2010 Update (American Heart Association,
December 17, 2009) has been issued just in time for American Heart Month, and the
news is sobering. Despite the fact that there may be broader awareness in the
population about women's heart disease, there are still disparities in how women are
diagnosed and treated, translating into more than 42 million women currently living
with or at risk for heart disease in the United States.
According to the report, one woman dies every minute from cardiovascular disease
(CVD), citing a total of 432,709 female deaths in 2006 more than the combined
deaths from all cancers, chronic lower respiratory disease, Alzheimer's disease, and
accidents. Of clear concern are the rates of overweight, obesity, diabetes, and high
blood pressure, all key contributors to heart disease. Although there was a higher
percentage 57% of awareness among women of CVD being the leading cause
of death among women than in recent surveys, the percentage of African-American
and Hispanic women was still low and unchanged. Hispanic women also reported
that there was i .. ,illg they can do to keep themselves from getting CVD."
"WomenHeart encourages all women to take charge of their heart health. It is
important for women to learn their risk for heart disease, know how to live a heart
healthy lifestyle, and recognize the signs and symptoms of heart disease in the event
she needs evaluation and treatment," said Lisa M. Tate, Chief Executive Officer of
WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.
On the bright side, in a national survey of women of all races, the number of
women who identified CVD as the leading cause of heart disease has almost doubled
since 1997 although the rate of awareness was higher in white women than in
black and Hispanic women. Respondents to the survey also cited confusion about
"basic prevention strategies." Indications are that there is more work to do to make
sure that all women, regardless of race, have clear and current information about
heart disease, including how to take preventative measures to help avoid developing
CVD.

Myths & Truths on Women

and Heart Disease
MYTH #1: Most women in America die from cancer.
TRUTH: Heart disease is the leading cause of death of women in the U.S.
Almost every minute, a woman in the U.S. dies from heart disease. Nearly five
times as many women 1,211,11 I)) will die from heart attacks alone this year than
will die from breast cancer.[1]
MYTH #2: Heart disease is a man's problem.
TRUTH: Since 1984, more women than men have died of heart disease each
year. Women have a 28% increased risk of dying as compared to men to die
within the first year after a heart attack.[1]
MYTH #3: Only older women have heart disease.
TRUTH: Heart disease threatens all women, even those as young as 30 and
40.For example, the rate of sudden cardiac death of women in their 30s and 40s
is increasing much faster than in men their same age-rising 21 percent in the
1990s.[2]
MYTH #4: Most doctors know about women's risk of heart disease.
TRUTH: A 2005 American Heart Association study showed that only eight
percent of primary care physicians and 17 percent of cardiologists knew that
heart disease kills more women than men.[3]
MYTH #5: Women's and men's heart disease is the same and should be treated
the same.
TRUTH: In many cases, the experts don't know. The vast majority of
cardiovascular research has been performed on men and/or data have not been
separated out based on gender. Where men and women have been studied
separately, some important differences have been identified. As importantly,
however, women should be treated as aggressively as men when there is proof
of benefit, such as using stations and aspirin after a heart attack.
MYTH #6: Women and men with heart disease get the same care.
TRUTH: Far too often, women fighting heart disease are not accurately
diagnosed and do not receive the care they need when they need it. A study
published in the January, 2009 issue of the journal Heart showed that among
heart patients, women were less likely than men to receive medications called
beta blockers, stations and ACE inhibitors-which are crucial to prevent further
heart problems.[5] Women are also less likely to receive ICDs (an implantable
cardioverter defibrillator, a device that helps to control irregular heartbeats) or
even aspirin, following a diagnosis of heart disease.[5] Even newer studies
confirm the disparities in care and treatment between men and women.[4,5]
MYTH #7: If heart disease isn't in your family, it isn't your problem.
TRUTH: A family history of heart disease does increase risk of developing the
disease. But many women without a family history have heart attacks or heart
problems. High blood-pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney disease, poor
dietary patterns, high sodium intake, smoking, being overweight or obese, and
physical inactivity, all factors that increase your risk of heart disease.
MYTH #8: You can't do anything to stop heart disease.
TRUTH: Yes, you can! You can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease
if you have the information you need, know the questions to ask your health
provider and have the support to make heart-smart changes in your life. Visit
our Prevention & Early Detection for more information.

Some key statistical updates from the report include:
Heart disease is the leading cause of death of American women, killing more than
a third of them.
More women than men die of heart disease each year.
35.3% of deaths in American women over the age of 20, or more than 432,000,
are caused by cardiovascular disease each year.
More than 200,000 women die each year from heart attacks- nearly five times as
many women as breast cancer.
Women are less likely than men to receive appropriate treatment after a heart
attack.
Women compromise only 27% of participants in all heart-related research studies.
58% of Caucasian women, 80% of African-American women, and 74% Hispanic-
American women are overweight or obese.
Women with diabetes are 2.5 times more likely to have heart attacks.
48% of adult women have total cholesterol of at least 200mg/dL.
50% of Caucasian women, 64% of African-American women, 60% of Hispanic
women, and 53% of Asian/Pacific Islander women are sedentary and get no leisure
time physical activity.
African-American women, despite their higher risk of heart disease, were 10%
less likely to receive aspirin and 27% less likely to receive cholesterol-lowering
drugs.
Some medications to treat hypertension in African-American patients work better
and some work worse compared to Caucasian patients.
Among African-American women over the age of 20, 44.8% have high blood
pressure.
Compared with Caucasian women, Hispanic women are nearly three times as
likely to be uninsured.
Prevalence for diabetes in Mexican-American women is two times higher than
Caucasian women.

8 Easy Steps

to

Get More
Physically

W .1 0Active
1. Get a partner. Find a friend to join you in becoming more active. Exercising
together will provide you both with support and encouragement to stick with
exercising when you get tired or discouraged.
2. Take a walk every day. Start small with a short walk and gradually build up to
at least 30 minutes or more each day. (Or take several fifteen-minute walks).
Walking with a friend or spouse will make your walks even more enjoyable.
3. Move more often. When watching television, get up and walk around or
march in place during commercials. Try hiding your remote get up each time you
want to change the TV channel. At work hand deliver messages to colleagues
instead of using the telephone or E-mail. If you're on the phone, get up and walk
around. Dance when listening to music.
4. Take the stairs. Try taking the steps down (and several flights up) instead of
the elevator.
5. Ditch the car. Park your car several blocks away from your destination. If you
use public transportation, get off before your stop and walk the rest of the way.
6. Plan in advance. Include activities such as walking, golfing, hiking, bicycling,
skating, or swimming in your vacation plans.
7. Hydrate. Be sure to drink lots of water before, during, and after you exercise.
8. Think outside the box. Try several kinds of exercise and find ones that you
really enjoy.
Before you begin exercising, talk with your doctor to see if you should take any
precautions.

After School
Program a
Success!!!
The Lafayette County
School System is very
fortunate to be one of the
few rural counties to of-
fer an after school pro-
gram. Our programs are
funded by Safe Schools
Healthy Students,
Lafayette County District
SAI, and 21st Century
After-School dollars. We
are housed at the
Lafayette Elementary
School and Lafayette
High School. This is our
fourth year and we have
made many gains in the
areas of reading and
math.


New water regulations
proposed recently by the
U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency will levy a
de facto water tax on
Floridians by increasing
water and sewer bills and
will impose onerous eco-
nomic burdens on agri-
cultural producers, ac-
cording to the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation,
the state's largest general
agricultural organization.
"For nearly a decade,
Florida's agricultural
community has been
proud to cooperate with
other businesses and gov-
ernment agencies in the
state's Total Maximum
Daily Loads program,"
said FFB President John
L. Hoblick. "The TMDL
program, which estab-
lished numeric nutrient
criteria based on water-
sheds, has caused Florida
to be recognized as a na-
tional leader in water
quality protection and
restoration. This action by
EPA abruptly changes


The Lafayette County
Schools After-School Pro-
gram is offered four days
a week from 3:15-6:00
Monday Thursday and
in the mornings from
7:00-8:00. We offer home-
work help, recreation,
and study skills. Credit
Retrieval is also provided
on Monday and Tues-
day.
The Lafayette Elemen-
tary School has enrolled
165 students. One hun-
dred fifty six of those stu-
dents have attended 20
days or more and the av-
erage daily attendance is
115. Our teacher/child
ratio is 1:10. Discipline,
grades, and homework
are tracked daily and the
after school staff work re-


that."
In fact, almost 75 per-
cent of Florida's 2.1 mil-
lion acres of irrigated
farm land currently em-
braces voluntary agricul-
tural Best Management
Practices (BMPs). Agri-
cultural BMPs are practi-
cal, cost-effective mea-
sures that agricultural
producers implement to
reduce the amount of
pesticides, fertilizers, ani-
mal waste, and other pol-
lutants entering our wa-
ter resources. Best Man-
agement Practices are de-
signed to benefit water
quality while maintain-
ing or even enhancing
agricultural production.
Farm Bureau believes
EPA's overly simplistic
approach, which affects
only Florida, is general-
ized and fundamentally
flawed because it does
not take into account the
unique characteristics of
each of the state's rivers,
streams and estuaries. Ex-
perts say the EPA stan-


ally hard to help children
stay on task. Semester
grades were a true reflec-
tion of what our program
is doing for students.
Lafayette Elementary's
total enrollment is at 604.
Only 39 of the total popu-
lation had a failing grade
and only 12 of those were
in the after school pro-
gram. This is due to the
combined effort of prin-
cipal, aides, teachers, and
support staff at Lafayette
Elementary.
There are 555 students
attending Lafayette High
School. The After School
Program has enrolled 99
students. Fifty one stu-
dents have attended 20
days or more and the av-
erage daily attendance is


dards will brand pristine
streams and lakes as im-
paired, requiring the state
to spend billions of scarce
dollars to meet the stan-
dard.
In some cases no tech-
nology currently exists to
meet the proposed feder-
al regulations, as in the
case of agricultural
wastewater. "There is no
way to calculate the time
and expense involved in
creating that technology,"
Hoblick said. "Agricul-
ture may simply be un-
able to bear those costs.
That should be of great
concern to every citizen
in Florida because a re-
duced domestic food
supply would ultimately
push food costs upward."
Florida Farm Bureau is
urging its members to get
involved in the issue by
contacting their elected
representatives in Talla-
hassee and Washington
to let them know this fed-
eral action is unaccept-
able. Citizens should also

Florida Public
Service
Commission
Sets Florida
Power & Light
Company Rates
The Florida Public Ser-
vice Commission (PSC)
set rates for all classes of
Florida Power & Light
Company (FPL) cus-
tomers.
For residential cus-
tomers using 1,000 kilo-
watt hours (kWh) per
month, the monthly bill
will change from $95.43 to
$96.46. The new rates take
effect March 1, 2010.
On January 13, the
Commission reduced the
company's revenue re-
quest from more than $1
billion to $75.5 million for
2010 and denied FPL's re-
quested rate increase for
2011. The Commission
also reduced FPL's return
on equity from the com-
pany's requested 12.5 per-
cent to 10 percent as a
midpoint to set rates.
The last time FPL's
base rates were changed
in conjunction with a full
rate case was 1985. Prior
adjustments to FPL's base
rates in years since 1985
were the result of rate case
settlements and other lim-
ited scope proceedings.
In March 2009, FPL
filed a petition with the
PSC requesting a base rate
increase. The Commis-
sion held nine customer
service hearings in FPL
service territory in June,
where PSC Commission-
ers heard from hundreds
of customers about the
utility's proposed rate in-
crease and its quality of
service. In August, Sep-
tember, and October,
technical hearings were
held in Tallahassee, where
Commissioners heard evi-
dence and testimony from
witnesses for FPL and in-
tervenors in the case.
FPL, Florida's largest
electric provider, serves
approximately 4.5 million
customers.
The PSC is committed
to making sure that Flori-
da's consumers receive
their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and
wastewater services in a
safe, affordable, and reli-
able manner. The PSC ex-
ercises regulatory authori-
ty over utilities in the ar-
eas of rate base/economic
regulation; competitive
market oversight; and
monitoring of safety, reli-
ability, and service.

February is American Heart Month


Cardiovascular disease
is the nation's No. 1 killer
and a major cause of dis-
ability. As a nationwide
provider of Social Securi-
ty disability representa-
tion and Medicare ser-
vices, Allsup is keenly
aware of the significance
of American Heart
Month in February, and
is pleased to join health
professionals, nonprofit
organizations, govern-
ment agencies and com-
munity groups in raising
awareness about the
prevalence, severity and
symptoms of heart dis-
ease.
Allsup routinely
works with individuals
who can no longer work
because of coronary heart
disease (including heart
attack), stroke, high
blood pressure and heart
failure-the four most
common types of cardio-
vascular disease, accord-
ing to the American
Heart Association.
About every 25 sec-
onds, an American will
experience a coronary
event, and about every
minute one person will
die. Although not always
fatal, coronary events of-
ten have a lasting affect
on an individual's ability
to return to work.
The Social Security Ad-
ministration defines a
cardiovascular impair-
ment as any disorder that
affects the proper func-
tioning of the heart or the
circulatory system (arter-
ies, veins, capillaries and
the lymphatic drainage).
The disorder can be con-
genital or acquired.
A partial list of cardio-
vascular impairments
that may be severe
enough to prevent an in-
dividual from doing any
gainful activity include:
Chronic heart fail-
ure-the inability of the
heart to pump enough


Heart Disease is


oxygenated blood to
body tissues;
Ischemic heart dis-
ease-when one or more
coronary arteries is nar-
rowed or obstructed;
Peripheral vascular
disease-generally, any
impairment that affects
either the arteries (pe-
ripheral arterial disease)
or the veins (venous in-
sufficiency) in the ex-
tremities, particularly the
lower extremities, or
An arrhythmia-a
change in the regular beat
of the heart. The heart
may seem to skip a beat
or beat irregularly, very
quickly (tachycardia), or
very slowly (bradycar-
dia).
A documented medical
history of at least three
months of observations
along with evidence that,
with few exceptions, the
condition has been pre-
sent, or is expected to be
present, for a continuous
period of at least 12
months, is usually neces-
sary for a successful ap-
plication.
The effects of heart dis-
ease can be life-changing,
but you can take steps to
reduce your risk by fol-
lowing CDC recommen-
dations to eat a healthy
diet low in trans fat, sug-
ar, cholesterol and sodi-
um, and getting 150 min-
utes of moderate intensi-
ty aerobic activity a week,
along with muscle
strengthening exercises
for all major muscle
groups two or more days
a week.
Being able to recognize
signs of heart attack and
stroke also is valuable.
The sooner a person gets
medical attention, the
better the outcome.
Heart attack warning
signs include (provided
by the CDC)
Pain or discomfort in
the jaw, neck or back.

Cold Weather Causes High Energy Bills
But Consumers Can Take Steps to Lessen the Blow
During the month of January, a sustained period of colder than normal temperatures
caused higher than normal electric bills for consumers across the state.
"Freezing temperatures make heating systems work harder and operate longer," said
John Martz, Executive V.P./CEO, for Suwannee Valley Electric, "The colder the
outdoor temperature, the greater the heat loss from inside the home and the longer
your heating system must operate to maintain your level of comfort."
Obviously, weather dictates how often heating systems operate based on the
member's desired level of comfort. The colder the outdoor temperature, the greater
the heat loss from inside the home and the longer the heating system must operate to
maintain the desired level of comfort.
For example, to maintain a basic comfort level of 65 degrees inside the home when
the outside temperature is 60 degrees, a heating system's run time is minimal.
However, as the temperature outside begins to drop, the heating system will increase
its run time proportionately to the heat loss from the home.
By improving the efficiency of your home, energy savings can be realized and you
can maintain a level of comfort at a reduced cost. The more efficient the home, the
slower the heat loss occurs and the less run time required to maintain the desired
temperature inside. Reliance on less energy efficient systems, like electric heat strips
and portable electric heaters also boosts your chances of receiving a high bill during
these prolonged cold spells.
"We can't do anything about the weather," Martz notes. "But consumers can take
steps to make their homes more energy efficient such as adding weather stripping and
caulk around windows and doors, replacing heating system air filters monthly and
closing outside vents to the crawl space of the home during the winter."

Five NFCC instructors


pass national


EMS certification

The North Florida Community College Public
Safety Academy is proud to announce that five
of its Emergency Medical Services (EMS) / Para-
medic instructors are now nationally certified.
Mac Leggett, NFCC's Paramedic/EMT Program
Director, along with instructors Thurston Raines
(Madison County), Christopher Thomas (Madi-
son County), Nathan Griffis (Suwannee County)
and John Blouser (Taylor County) successfully
completed a four-day course held by NAEMSE,
the National Association of Emergency Medical
Services Educators, in Tennessee this January.
"This course is the only nationally recognized
EMS instructor course in the United States,"
said Leggett. "This course will be mandatory for
EMS instructors by 2013 so we are ahead of the
game."
The NAEMSE course follows the DOT/NHT-
SA 2002 National Guidelines for Educating EMS
Instructors and is a necessary step for NFCC's
Emergency Medical Services program to be ac-
credited by COAEMSP (Committee on Accredi-
tation of Educational Programs for the Emer-
gency Medical Services Professions). NFCC pro-
grams are accredited by the Southern Associa-
tion of Colleges and Schools and Leggett hopes
to pursue the COAEMSP accreditation for
NFCC's EMS program in the near future.
Currently NFCC's EMS program offers an
Associate in Science Degree in Emergency Med-
ical Services and college credit certificate pro-
grams in Paramedic and Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT-B). For more information, con-
tact Mac Leggett at (850) 973-1673, email legget-
ta@nfcc.edu or visit www.nfcc.edu / emergency-
