Thirty minutes before All

their views with the ever-gi

conservative nature.
Chan Perry, president

the first to stand and
speak.
"From what I hear, at
the other meetings he's
been to, he hasn't an-
swered the questions,"
Perry said. "I think we
should all agree to basi-
cally force him to an-
swer the questions by
not allowing him to
move on without doing
so. He's gonna dally or
not answer the ques-
tions at all."
Perry was.followed
by someone shouting,
"He's gonna be out of
work next year!"
Troy Thomson stood
up next.

"If you put the

said Lashley.
The budget situa-

relationships, our mo-
tives should always be
for the good of the other
person. Honest compli-
ments are always wel-
come, but deceptive flat-
tery truly is a net for our
feet and a thief in dis-
guise. Why is this so? 1)
Since the motive for flat-
tery is self-interest, it
lays a trap to manipulate
behavior from which the
flatterer will benefit. If a
simple request would be
rejected, flattery be-
comes the tool that
serves to deceive and
control. 2) Flattery is
dangerous to the recipi-
ent when it is received,
(we might say "swal-
lowed hook, line and
sinker") and results with
pride and conceit caus-
ing the person to act
foolishly.

It is worth mentioning
that we are all suscepti-
ble to flattery because it,
is human nature to enjoy
hearing good things.
about ourselves, espe-
cially the opinion of oth-
ers. Interestingly, .the
original Hebrew word
for flattery translates
"smooth"(hence the cau-
tion for a "smooth-talk-
er") and gives us warn-
ing when praise is too
easy to swallow. Wis-
dom and discernment
dictate that we learn to
recognize when praise is
being "laid on a little
thick." We must also con-
sider the source. Ask
yourself, "Would this
same person tell me the
truth if it were hard to
hear?" If the answer is
yes, enjoy the comple-
ment...if no, beware of
the net around your
feet... because your heart
matters!

Fruits and vegetables on a budget
Getting more for your money


With careful meal
planning, smart shop-
ping, and a few tweaks
in storage and prepara-
tion techniques, you can
make the most out of
your family's budget by
always including fruits
and vegetables in your
meals. They're an ex-
cellent value for the
money! Check out
these tips and get the
most for your money
from fruits and veggies.
MEAL PLANNING to
Fit Your Budget
Preparing meals and
eating at home saves
money and gives you.
the opportunity to enjoy
meals with your family.
But if you're busy, how
do you do this? Plan
ahead! By planning
ahead, you'll save time
and be less likely to re-
sort to pre-prepared or
take-out food that costs
more.
Start with this...
* Make a list, and
stick to it to avoid
spending money on un-
necessary items.
* Include frozen,
canned and dried forms
of fruits and vegetables
on your list. They are
all nutritious and handy
for quick-fix meals.
* Make sure you have
staples that you use on a
regular basis on hand.
Then try this...
* Plan for fruits or
vegetables to be the
CENTER of the
plate...and then add
protein and grains.
Some vegetable-grain
combinations don't re-
quire additional protein
but when you do add
meat or cheese, think of
it as flavoring.
* Plan meals around,
fruits and vegetables
that go a long way.
Plan to include fruits
and vegetables you can
grab as quick snacks or

turn into soups and
casseroles that you can
eat a couple of times
during the week.

SHOPPING for Fruits
and Vegetables and
Sticking to Your Bud-
get
Buy in season. Al-
though most fresh fruits
and vegetables are
available year-round,
some are less expensive
when they are'in sea-
son. Also, keep in
mind that all forms of
fruits and vegetables
are nutritious, so
canned and frozen
forms are ok too!
Buy more. When
there are specials on
fruits and vegetables,
buy extra. They can be
frozen, or you can pre-
pare a dish to be frozen
for a busy night's din-
ner. But don't buy it if
you won't� use it or
you'll just be tossing the
money in the garbage.
Don't shop when
you're hungry. You
may be tempted to buy
things that are not on
your list. An impulse
purchase of a bag of
cookies...on sale...can
cost you $2.50 or more.
Comparison shop.
The larger size is not
always the best price.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Officially
Opens Lake City Social Security Office d -


The new Lake City So-
cial Security office offi-
cially opened on Tues-
day, July 28, with a rib-
bon cutting ceremony.
Construction on the new
office building was com-
pleted in November 2008
and the office was moved
from its previous location
at 1990 South Main Street
to the new location at
1348 Southwest Bascom
Norris Drive. The new
office has been open to
the public since Decem-
ber 2008.
Lake City District Man-
ager Kay Louder wel-
comed those attending
the ceremony and gave a
brief history of the office.
Atlanta Regional Com-
missioner Paul Barnes
gave the keynote address
highlighting the impor-
tance of Social Security
and the accomplishments
of the Lake City office.
Gainesville District Man-
ager Donna Maitland
thanked all of those who
helped to complete the
move to the new build-
ing. Senior Master
Sergeant Virgillo Pubill
from the Air National
Guard in Jacksonville
gave the invocation and
13 year old Lillie
Hohman sang the Na-
tional Anthem. An honor
guard from Moody Air
Force Base in Valdosta,
Georgia presented the
colors. Staff members
from the Lake City and


Gainesville Social Securi-
ty offices provided re-
freshments.
The new office building
has a space of 9,432
square feet. It has many
new features including 10
front-end interview sta-
tions and a self-service
area where people visit-
ing the office can com-
plete questionnaires and
other forms to speed up
the interview process. A
computer' kiosk in the
waiting area allows peo-
ple visiting the office to
check in as soon as they
arrive. Louder said, "All
of these features will al-
low us to serve people
visiting the Social Securi-
ty office faster and more
efficiently." The building
is located at the comer of
Bascom Norris Drive and
Sisters Welcome Road.
The Lake City. Social
Security office serves Co-
lumbia, Hamilton,
Lafayette, Suwannee, and
Union Counties. The
combined population for
these counties is 146,396.
There are 29,335 Social
Security beneficiaries liv-
ing in the Lake City ser-
vice area. These benefi-
ciaries receive $2,464,000
in Social Security benefits
each month.
The Lake City Social
Security office and most
Social Security offices
throughout the U S are
open from 9 A.M. to 4
P.M Monday through Fri-


Atlanta Regional Commis-
sioner Paul Barnes (giving
keynote address)

day. The number of peo-
ple visiting Social Securi-
ty offices has increased
significantly as the Baby
Boom Generation contin-
ues to retire. This trend
will continue for the next
10 years. * Louder offers
this suggestion, "Go to the
Social Security website."
Many Social Security
services are available on-
line at "http://www.so-
cialsecurity.gov"
www.socalsecurity.gov.
You can apply for retire-
ment and disability bene-
fits, find out what benefits
you qualify for, and esti-
mate your future Social
Security benefits. If
you're receiving Social Se-
curity benefits you can
change your address or
telephone number, re-
quest a replacement
Medicare card, request
proof of your Social Secu-
rity income, and check
your information and
benefits. Social Security
pamphlets and other in-
formation are also avail-
able online at this web-

Lafayette County Health Department - Citizen SUpport for America's Military or Citizen SAM
I I- TI- I - k - - ;.


Swine Flu Update
The Lafayette County Health Department has
not received any laboratory confirmed reports ot
H1N1 virus, also called winee flu. However,-we
do believe that the HINI influenza virus is in the
county. It is important for the public to under-
stand how the virus is spread, what the symp-
toms are, what to do if you think you might have
the virus, and how you can protect yourself.
The HIN1 virus is spread through the air from
person to person. HIN1 is also spread by touch-
ing contaminated surfaces, such as doorknobs or
counter tops. This virus could be anywhere. In-
fluenza does not usually come during the summer
months, but the number of H1N1 cases is increas-
ing. The CDC estimates that there have been one
million cases worldwide. As of July 29, Florida
has 3,321 confirmed cases, but it is estimated that
there have actually been 60,000 cases. This illness
is very widespread and doctors are no longer do-
ing laboratory testing unless the patient is hospi-
talized or there is an outbreak of connected cases.
Most of the illnesses with HINI have been rela-
tively mild and there have been fewer deaths than
was predicted. Symptoms of the novel H1N1 flu
are similar to the symptoms of regular seasonal
flu and include fever greater than 1000 F, cough,
sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fa-
tigue. Some people may also have diarrhea and
vomiting. If you think you may be ill with H1N1,
you should stay home from work or school to
avoid spreading this infection to others in the
community.
This virus is spread when people with the ill-
ness are in close contact with one another. There
have been a number of outbreaks over the sum-
mer at day camps, overnight camps, church
camps, as well as isolated outbreaks in prisons,
day cares and nursing homes. H1NI outbreaks
can be expected in places where groups of people
are together for extended times. Because of this
we can anticipate that there will be more illness
with H1N1 when school starts back in a few
weeks.
An H1N1 vaccine is currently being developed
and tested in the United States and other coun-
tries. The vaccine should be available for high
risk persons in the fall of 2009. The Lafayette
County Health Department is preparing a vaccine


Iraq, Afghanistan,
Kosovo, North Korea -
place names in the news
every day. For over
1,000,000 American fam-
ilies, those place names
are attached to a loved
one serving in America's
military. Those remote
places are far more than
news items, blogs or de-
bates in Congress. They
are the temporary, dan-
gerous residence of their
husband, wife,. child,
niece, nephew, cousin or
friend.
Citizen Support for
America's Military, ;or
Citizen SAM, based in
Peoria, Illinois, is one of
the largest all-volunteer
organizations in the
country to channel items
to America's military
men, women and ca-
nines. Operation Santa is
one of its key projects.
Operation Santa has
sent over 70,000 Christ-
mas stockings and
Hanukkah bags to the
troops since 2004. The
hundreds of service
dogs living in warring
areas are not left out
with each receiving a
special holiday gift.
100% of funds collect-
ed by Citizen SAM, a
registered non-profit
corporation, for its many
projects go directly to
the support of those sent
to protect our freedoms.
Volunteers sew, knit,
quilt, crochet, collect the
donated contents to be
sent, pack and prepare
to mail the cases of hol-
iday presents.

Citizen SAM helps our troops have a better Christmas.


The distribution chan-
nels overseas are al-
ready in place and Citi-
zen SAM has regular
communication with
military officials pre-
pared to get the Opera-
tion Santa holiday good-
ies into the hands of the
troops for which they
are intended. This has
worked perfectly, quiet-
ly and with little fanfare
for 5 years due to the ef-
forts of.regular ordinary
Americans.
Until this year and cri-
sis of the economy.
Sending one case of 15
stockings costs $30 to get
it overseas and into the
proper hands for distrib-
ution. Do the math.
This year, Operation
Santa needs $100,000 for
postage. Not so some-
one can keep a job, not:
for rent or overhead, but
so our military troops
can receive a message
from us that we care
about them - not about
the politics that caused


them to be away from
home and family for the
holidays.
Read about Citizen
Sam and its many pro-
grams that provide for'
needs of our overseas
troops at www.citizen-
sam.org and, especially,
about Operation 'Santa
at "http://www.opera-
tionsanta.info"
www.operationsanta.inf
o. Just American citizen
volunteers, just ordi-
nary people, can make
such a difference this
coming holiday season.
It's Christmas now if
we want to get the pack-


ages sent in November.
If you want to help,
send a check, volunteer
at a local Citizen SAM
sponsored event, send
items for inclusion in
the stockings and bags
(listed on Web site) and
tell your friends, your
church, your club or or-
ganization. Operation

District updates its


lands and rules for use


Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District (District) is working to
make its public recreation lands
more user-friendly. Some of the im-
provements include additional parlk-
ing lots, informational kiosks and
signs marking trails and hours of op-
eration.
The District will also replace all
red boundary markers with yellow
ones for greater visibility. Yellow
bands will be posted every 200 feet
and yellow signs every 400 feet
along property lines.
The markers are important be-
cause not all property is fenced-in
due to installation and maintenance
costs, explained District Land Man-
agement Specialist Edwin McCook.
District lands are open to the pub-
lic during daylight hours only. Un-
der the District's definition of day-
light, visitors may arrive art hour
and a half before sunrise and leave
an hour and a half after sunset.
"That way those who fish, for ex-
ample, will have enough time to get
out on the water at first light and
back to their vehicles after sunset,"
McCook said.
The District does allow some night
use for certain activities such as fish-
ing or camping to those who obtain
a special use authorization at no
cost.
The District is also working to post
signage that would show what activ-
ities are allowed on each tract. Signs
will display symbols depicting al-
lowed activities such as fishing, hik-
ing, camping, etc.
"If the sign doesn't display a cer-
tain symbol, that activity isn't al-
lowed," said Bob Heeke, District se-
nior land resource manager.
The District recently updated its
land management rules to reflect its
current policies and procedures. The


process included adoption of a pub-
lic use guide to inform the public of
what activities are allowed on each
tract that is open for recreation.
The rules allow Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
officers to issue citations 'to those
who engage in activities other than
what is allowed on District property.
For example, enforcing hours of
operation, helps cut down on vandal-
ism and the possession of alcohol.
As a result, District lands are more
family-friendly and the cost of main-
tenance is less.
Heeke said regulating what visi-
tors do on District property helps
protect the' land and provides fami-
ly-friendly recreational opportuni-
ties.
"Our goal is to protect the resource
and provide public access," he said.
For more information about spe-
cial use authorizations, land man-
agement rules or the public use
guide call 386-362-1001.

T II IRuflAY A1J(�UST 20 2AEG


Teacher ready to quit his job because of a

love triangle involving a 16-year-old student
Let me share with you a story of a love triangle. It was about 7:30 am, not long before
the first bell to start home room. Mr. Smith was sitting at his desk, finishing the last details
of the lesson to start his first day of teaching high school. He checked his notes and
straightened his desk, not realizing the door to his class was open. Finally, looking up
from his nervous work, he saw his first student coming in the open door. i
Her name was Carmen. She was a tall brunette with a nice figure. She gave him a big
smile, but somewhat covered her innocent, young mouth with her hand in a cute kind of
way. He anxiously greeted her with a weak "Good morning, welcome to my class." He : :.
pressed through his fear and proceeded to talk with her, discovering that they had a lot in
common. Mr. Smith also noticed that she continued to cover her mouth when she talked.
Minutes later, other students started to flow in. When the class was about full, just before
the late bell, Jacob entered.the classroom with his crew. At this point, Mr. Smith noticed
Carmen shrink down in her seat with a tortured look on her face. As soon as Jacob saw
Carmen, he let it fly, "Look! There's snaggle-toothed Carmen!" Mr. Smith, being nervous
on his first day of teaching, held back his anger and just told the boys to take their seats.
After about a week of hearing the students (led by Jacob) calling her snaggle-toothed, '.
Mr. Smith decided to do something proactive about it. When he got home that evening, he
explained everything to his wife. They both agreed that they needed to get the other .'
teachers involved and dQ the right thing.
Led by Mr. Smith, the teachers secretly started collecting funds to help Carmen replace
her missing and broken teeth. With the help of a local dentist and the hearing teachers, the
day finally came to give Carmen the good news. When Mr. Smith approached her with the surprise, she started to cry, rejected his
help and ran off. In fact, a full week passed and Carmen had not been back to school. Mr. Smith felt like a failure, not only as a
teacher, but also as a man. He began to question his reasons for becoming a teacher in the first place, and wanted to quit or at least
transfer and start over.
Mr. Smith decided to give it one more shot and went to see if Carmen would be at home. To his delight, she was! He started to
apologize, but she stopped him. "It's not your fault, Mr. Smith. I was too embarrassed to return to school. I've put up with this for
years and it hurt to think the teachers were involved. What hurts the most is that no one even cares how it happened!"
"How did it happen, Carmen?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Let's just say my stepdad's been in jail for years and is not getting out any time soon!"
Mr. Smith quickly apologized, and finally convinced Carmen that all the teachers loved her and just wanted to help. She agreed to
see the dentist and, after a couple of weeks, returned to school with a brand-new smile.
What a change a smile can make! Carmen was a new person. Gone were the days of covering her smile when she talked. She
joined the cheerleading team, started to improve in all her classes and became one of the most popular girls in school.
I wish this story had a happy ending for all, but for poor Jacob, it doesn't. Mr. Smith confiscated a note Jacob passed to his friend
in class. To Jacob's embarrassment, Mr. Smith read the note aloud, as was his class policy. Jacob, not surprisingly, needed advice on
how to talk to the girl he loved, who wouldn't give him the time of day. You guessed it--Carmen!
I hope you enjoyed this story. Unfortunately, Carmen's story is all too familiar for thousands of people with missing or broken
teeth. The embarrassment and shame is very deep. It affects a person's personality, job and even love or social life. You can't feel
attractive until you see yourself as attractive.
I'm here to help you improve your smile by replacing those missing and broken
teeth. I-won't lecture or embarrass you about your smile. If you could identify with
Carmen in that story, then come and see me at Smile Designs By Dr. Charlotte Gerry.
I can help you obtain an unbelievable smile at a believable price.

A new way to pay




for college


NFCC
announces
new Tuition
Payment Plan

North Florida Commu-
nity College has a new
and easy way for stu-'
dents to pay tuition this
fall - the NFCC Tuition
Payment Plan. The new
payment option was cre-
ated :to,-.make college
more affordable.
"Although NFCC is
among Florida's most af-
fordable colleges, we rec-
ognize that some stu-
dents may find paying all
tuition and fees upfront a
strain on their budget,"
said Amelia Mulkey,
Dean of Administrative
Services at NFCC. "We
hope the new payment
option will make attend-


ing college a reality for
more people in our area."
Eligible students have
the option to pay either
one-half or one-fourth of
the total tuition cost at
the beginning of the term
and then make interest-
free payments on the re-
maining balance during
the semester. Payment
terms are set up based on
the student's income or.
financial situation, with'
all fees due by the last
date to withdraw (Oct. 30
for Fall Term, 2009). The
process is set up through
'NFCC, not an outside fi-
nancial institution. Stu-
dents who enroll in the
payment plan are re-
quired to pay all fees in
full by the designated
date or they will be with-
drawn from .all courses
without refund.


NFCC's fall classes be-
gin Aug. 24. Those inter-
ested in applying for the'
Tuition Payment Plan
should contact Amelia
Mulkey at 850-973-1604
or , email
MulkeyA@nfcc.edu prior
to the start of classes.
NFCC also offers other fi-
nancial aid opportunities
such as grants and schol-
arships. NFCC's Finan-
cial Aid office can be con-
tacted at 850-973-1621 or
FinancialAid@nfcc.edu.
More information about
NFCC scholarships is
available from the NFCC
Foundation office, 850-
973-9423' or Fourida-
tion@nfcc.edu. More in-
formation, including
NFCC's fall schedule of
courses, is available at

SWINE FLU:


Continued From Page 1A

patient is hospitalized
or there is an outbreak
of connected cases.
Most of the illnesses
with H1N1 have been
relatively mild and
there have been fewer
deaths than was pre-
dicted. Symptoms of
the novel H1N1 flu are
similar to the symp-
toms of regular season-
al flu and include fever
greater than 100" F,
cough, sore throat,
body aches, headache,
chills, and fatigue.
Some people may also
have diarrhea and
vomiting. If you think
you may be ill with
H1N1, you should stay
home from work or
school to avoid spread-
ing this infection to
others in the communi-
ty.
This virus is spread
when people with the
illness are in cose con-
tact with one another.,
There have been a
number of outbreaks
over the summer at day
camps, overnight
camps, church camps,
as well as isolated out-
breaks in prisons, day
cares and nursing
homes. H1N1 out-
breaks can be expected
in places where groups
of people are together


for extended times. Be-
cause of this we can an-
ticipate that there will
be more illness with
H1N1 when school
starts back in a few
weeks.
To slow the spread of
H1N1, people should
avoid close contact
with those who are
coughing or otherwise
appear ill. They should
also wash their hands
frequently and avoid
touching their eyes,
nose or mouth. Also,
people should cover
their cough or sneeze
with a tissue and throw
the tissue away, or
cough/sneeze into their
elbow.
An H1N1 vaccine is
currently being devel-
oped and tested in the
United States and other
countries. The vaccine
should be available for
high-risk persons in the
fall of 2009. The
Lafayette County
Health Department is
preparing a vaccine
plan and is working
closely with communi-
ty partners to provide
this vaccine. It is im-
portant that residents
stay informed about the
virus and what they
can do to protect them-
selves and their fami-
lies without unneces-
sary alarm.

tive, so that they can keep people working. How-
ever, even in the face of a budget crisis, Lashley
says Lafayette schools cannot wait to make the
necessary curricular and policy changes, in order
to make Lafayette a better school district.
New principal Gina Hart will also be bringing
changes to the elementary school in the way of
new scheduling, curriculum, and teaching prac-
tices.


Frustrated crowd at least pleased to hear

Boyd disavow one legislative proposal


Continued From Page 1A

tion instead of up," he
said. "The one thing I
want to do in politics is
make life better for my
children."
He added, "In the 20
years I've attended town:
hall meetings in
Lafayette County, the is-
sue of healthcare has al-
ways come up."
Boyd said he wanted
to slow the process of
healthcare legislation so
that he could get out and
hear public opinion.
"We shouldn't put an
arbitrary timeline on
this, we should do it
right," said Boyd.
He then held up HR
3200, one of the bills un-
der consideration in
Congress, and said, "I
will not support the bill
in the form it's in now."
The remark was fol-
lowed by cheers from
the audience.
Boyd said the possible
changes to the bill sug-
gested Monday by Presi-
dent Obama are just a
start. (These changes in-
cude the possible elimi-
nation of a public option
in the reform package.)
Boyd said a responsi-
ble healthcare reform
should have: lower cost
for everyone, patient
choice, improved access
to coverage, and must be
paid for, and not add to
the deficit.
The crowd of about
200 found many of
Boyd's answers to their
questions confusing or
unsatisfying. The meet-
ing was punctuated by
catcalls and angry out-
bursts from the audi-
ence.
Robin Doyel said that
she was uninsured be-
cause, being a small
business owner, she
could not afford the pre-


miums. "I get a payment
book at the end of a hos-
pital visit. What's the
difference in making my
payments at the end in-
stead of before?" she
said. Boyd went on to
suggest that it is the
uninsured that make in-
surance premiums go
up. "Are you saying I'm
a leach on society?"
asked Doyel. Boyd
shrugged his shoulders
and lifted his hands.
Cecelia Koon, a stu-
dent at Lafayette High
School, asked the con-
gressman, "I want to go
to college, get a good job
so I can afford my own
healthcare. But why
should I do that when I
can graduate high
school, get a low income
job and have the govern-
ment pay for my health-
care?" said Koon. Boyd
never seemed to directly
answer her question.
"Are you going to use
the same healthcare as
us?" asked Linda Timer.
"Will you have to pay
the 8 percent (proposed
tax)?" .
Boyd answered, "No-
body wants to be told
what healthcare they
have to have." He was
interrupted by someone
shouting, "Well you're
telling us!"
Lana Morgan,
Lafayette County's su-
pervisor of elections,
stood up and said
"Allen, this looks like so-
cialized medicine to me."
Afterward, most
seemed happy with the
tone of the meeting, but
many were confused by
the congressman's an-
swers or, as they saw it,
lack thereof.
Afterward, Koon said
Boyd handled himself
well under the circum-
stances.
"I think it went good


considering the fact that
most of the people here
are Republican not De-
mocrat, except that he
never answered the
questions himself," she
said.
Timer echoed Koon's
remarks about Boyd's
evasiveness.
"He never gave us any
answers," she said after
the meeting. "He never
ahsweredlhe questions."
"It was all a little con-
fusing," said county
commissioner Ernest
Jones. "I agree that we do'
need to do something,
but I don't think it
should be done by the
government. Still, I do
think we need to do
something."
Jones said he respected
the congressman for
coming, considering that
most of those present
were more conservative
than the Blue Dog De-
mocrat.
Some said they've seen
progress due to citizens'
efforts.nationwide.
"There have already
been changes to the bill,
and that's because of
these town hall meet-
ings," said one unidenti-
fied visitor. Most are also
happy that he does not
support HR 3200, and if


bill does go through,
most are confident Allen
Boyd and the other "Blue
Dog" Democrats would
vote against it.
Many, however, re-
mained skeptical.
"I'm upset with the
healthcare reform as it is.
I'm upset with the repre-
sentatives. We're not get-
ting answers. Those of us
who disagree with gov-
ernment healthcare are
]iabeld as radicals or
that we're being paid to
be here; which we're
not," said Jennifer Don-
away, of Mayo.
Donaway's daughter,
Florida State student
Sara Donaway, said she
was still forming her
opinion on healthcare re-
form.
"It is going to affect us
(young adults) now and
in the future, so I need to
be informed," said Sara.
"Right now I'm leaning
towards not supporting
a government healthcare
system."
Greg tatzke, 24, said
"It's basically a faulty
system that they're
proposing. It's the re-
wording of the same
tired ideology as was
used in Marxist societies
like the Soviet Union
and in Burma."

they leap upon to release a tennis ball, they catch the ball
and bring it back to their handler so that the next dog on
their team may then run the course. There are two
leagues that teams can compete in to win titles and
awards.

Did you know?

Music therapy has been shown to help in the healing process of a variety of
ailments or conditions, be they physical or mental. Researchers at the Institute
for Music Therapy in Germany, for instance, studiedd the effects of music
therapy when used to treat children with developmental delay. Researchers
studied a group of 12 children between 4 and 6.5 years of age with
developmental ages between I to 3.5 years. They were able to note the effects
of musical therapy on the children' development, which showed significant
improvements, including better hearing and speech and improved hand-eye
coordination in the children after exposure to the therapy. Music therapy has
also proven effective in treating depression in older patients. A study by
researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine concluded that music
therapy showed great potential as a beneficial intervention for homebound
elderly people who have limited access to healthcare professionals.

UF's equine neonatal intensive care unit offers state-of-the-art care to foals suffering from a variety of ailments.- Photo courtesy UF


By Sarah Carey
W hen Ocala resident Irene Bryan's
Appaloosa mare, Skippa Secret, gave
birth to a premature foal last year, both
mother and baby needed immediate medical care.
Thanks to veterinarians at the University of Florida's
Hofmann Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, both horses
survived.
"Our personal veterinarian, Dr. Andy Bennett,
responded to my call in the middle of the night,"
Bryan said. "Based on what he saw after coming out
and performing X-rays on site, he recommended that
we get both horses to the foal unit at UF as soon as
possible."
When Bryan arrived at UF's large animal hospital,
Bryan said veterinary emergency team members were
waiting for them outside the facility with a gurney.
"I was immediately impressed," she said. "The
overall experience was very satisfying."
The foal was treated for eight days with
antimicrobials and supportive care for prematurity
and sepsis. In addition, Skippa Secret was
successfully treated for a retained placenta. UF
veterinarians continue to monitor the pair's progress,
although both animals are successfully recuperating at
home.
Meanwhile, Bryan's 9-year-old granddaughter, who
witnessed much of the horses' ordeal, has decided she
wants to become a veterinarian.
"The foal was a gift to my granddaughter so that
she could show her in halter competition through 4-
H," Bryan said. "She's now spending a lot of time
with the foal and hopes to learn more about veterinary
medicine because of this experience."
UF's neonatal intensive care unit, commonly
referred to as the "foal unit," was established in the
early 1980s and was the result of a unique partnership
between veterinary specialists and human
neonatologists at the UF Health Science Center.
Neonatology research at UF has been funded by the
Morris Animal Foundation and Florida's Pari-Mutuel
Trust'Fund as well as by the Florida Thoroughbred


Breeders & Owners Association.
The state-of-the-art facility is staffed by board-
certified specialists who can provide immediate
medical attention and handle any level of care
quickly. The foal unit is Florida's only equine
neonatal ICU that provides treatment by board-
certified internists round-the clock for critically ill
foals and their dams, 365 days a year.
"We've got the crash cart ready to go," said Dana
Zimmel, D.V.M., a board-certified internist
specializing in equine medicine and an assistant
professor of large animal medicine at UF.
Most foals treated at UF's foal unit are born
prematurely or are under a month old. Among the
most common ailments treated at the unit are bacterial
infections, which can produce clinical signs within the
first 24 hours after birth or the first month of life.
The vast majority of cases seen at UF's foal unit are
considered emergencies.
"Primarily, we see foals with sepsis, or bacterial
infections in their bloodstream; foals which have
diarrhea or foals who have problems because they
suffer from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, or a
lack of oxygen around the time of birth," Zimmel
said. "Those foals, known as dummy foals, appear
normal at first and then within the first 48 hours of
life they lose the ability to nurse. They also lose their
affinity for the mare and often progress to not being
able to stand and even experience seizures."
Many foals which have been treated for "dummy
foal syndrome" have gone on to become outstanding
athletes, Zimmel said. Strike the Gold, the 1991
Kentucky Derby winner, is just one example.
Thoroughbred breeding season takes place between
Jan. 1 and June 30,.but occasionally foals will be
admitted to UF in the fall months, Zimmel said. The
unit will accept patients from referring veterinarians
as well as from individual clients who would like to
bring their foals directly to UF's large animal hospital.
Anyone seeking more information about the foal
unit should call the large animal hospital fint desk at
352-392-2229.

An out-of-control wildfire. - Photo: Submitted


New UF-housed wildfire 'strike team'



teaches safe burning techniques


GAINESVILLE-When it
comes to fighting fires, it's
usually the guy with the
hose that gets all the hero
worship. But as ever-
increasing temperatures
and droughts bring a
greater threat from
wildfires, sometimes it's
the guy with a torch who
can do the most good.
"Fire is an art," said
Parker Titus, a specialist
with more than 400
controlled burs on his
resume. "It's one of the
most powerful influences
on our natural systems.
Knowing how to use it -
and not let it get out of
control - is an essential
part of the conservation .
effort."


This week, Titus and his
crew, the newly formed
Northeast Florida Resource
Management Support
Team, will be sharing that
knowledge with 40
students and public agency
employees.
The team will help teach
how to stay safe while
practicing controlled burns
as part of a weeklong basic
wildland firefighter
training program
conducted by the
University of Florida, The
Nature Conservancy and
the Natural Areas Training
Academy.
The course will be a mix
of classrooih instruction on
the UF campus and a day
of hands-on demonstration


at the Ordway-Swisher
Biological Station in
Putnam County, where the
team is housed.
"We have a full roster of
students and a long waiting
list," said Linda
Demetropoulos, the
training academy's
program manager. "This is
an issue that people who
work in settings like parks
and preserves need to
know about."
Controlled burs seek to
use fire to remove the
natural clutter that serves
as kindling for larger and
more dangerous wildfires.
Last year alone, 2,894
wildfires burned more than
100,000 acres in Florida.
One blaze resulted in


nearly $10 million in
property damage.
According to a report
issued in an April edition
of the journal Science,
rising temperatures
associated with climate
change are increasing this
wildfire threat nationwide.
However, prescribed
burning is much more than
just a preventative
measure. Much of
Florida's wildlife relies on
fire to renew natural
habitat. Species like the
gopher tortoise and the
Florida scrub jay rely on it.
"We live in a balance
with nature, or we try to,"
said Zachary Prusak, state
fire manager for the
conservancy. "Controlled


burning reduces the
intensity of wildfires and
keeps our habitats healthy."
Managed by the
conservancy and supported


by UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences,
the team consists of Titus,
Andrew Rappe, Andrew
Slack and Daniel Godwin.
The four are responsible for
helping many public
agencies east of Interstate
75 from Orlando north to
the Georgia border.
Also charged with tasks
such as removing invasive
species and monitoring
wildlife, the crew has aided
in nearly 50 controlled
burns since it was
established roughly a year
ago with funds from a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
grant.
The typical tool used for
controlled burning is called
a drip torch, which looks a
bit like a pesticide sprayer
whose nozzle has been,
swapped out with a
firelighter. This torch is
what most of the students
will be learning to use.
The team also has a few
tools that aren't for
novices, such as a heavy-
duty pickup and ATV, both
equipped with mounted
torches and other
modifications. Then there
are the even less
conventional tools
sometimes.employed to set
a controlled fire.
Titus says he's seen flare
pistols, bows loaded with
flaming arrows, helicopters
with flame throwers and"
even torches carried
horseback.
"You use whatever you
have that will work well,"
he said. "But you never
forget that your first
Priority is always safety."
