Fishing in the Suwannee has always
been a popular local pastime, and with
the slowdown in the economy, some local
folks have turned to catching their own
bass, bream and catfish rather than buy-
ing them from a store. They may want to
think again.
I Recent findings by the U.S. Geological
Survey raise concerns about mercury
contamination in fish caught from the
Suwannee and other area rivers. Current-
ly, there are eight kinds of fish that carry
mercury advisories from the Florida De-
partment of Health in the Suwannee Riv-
er system, which includes the Santa Fe,
Withlacoochee and the Alapaha.

Van hits log truck; nobody badly hurt


By Stephenie Livingston
On Wednesday of last week
at 2:15 a.m., Miguel A. Vazquez
Guillen was traveling north on
SR 20 towing a Volkswagen
Beetle when he swerved to
miss a log truck being driven
by Rafael Morales and travel-
ing only 5 to 10 mph due to
slowing traffic, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol. A
deputy sheriff was in the


process of slowing traffic to
protect cows that had escaped
their holdings and were on. the
east shoulder of the road.
Guillen swerved to the left and
struck the left rear of the log
truck's trailer, FHP said. The
sudden impact caused the VW
bug in tow to come loose and
strike the back of Guillen's van,
spinning the van clockwise into
the southbound lane before


coming to a stop. The VW bug
ended up on the east shoulder
several feet from the roadway.
Guillen and his passenger, Eri-
ka A. Diaz, suffered only minor
injuries, while Morales suf-
fered no injuries, according to
FHP. All involved were wear-
ing seatbelts. Guillen's vehicles
suffered $12,000 in damage and
the damage to Morales' log
truck was estimated at $15,000.

Health officials say
vaccines for the H1N1
flu are expected to be
available for Lafayette
County residents
sometime within the
next week.
Exact dates are not
available.
The vaccine, which
will be offered in one of
two forms--intranasal
and more commonly
by injection-- will be
given first to those who
fall into priority
groups, followed by
members of the general
public, said Pamela
Blackmon, administra-
tor for the Lafayette
County Health Depart-
ment.
"All vaccines offered
through the health de-
partment will be free of
charge," she said. "We
will make the vaccines
available to our high
risk groups first."
Priority groups in-
clude: pregnant
women, healthcare
providers, household
contacts of infants less
than 6 months of age,
children and young
adults from ages 6
months to 24 years old,

Heart Matters


What is your favorite
memory? Pull it out and
think about it a moment,
is it a precious family
time, or maybe a success
you experienced, or a
time your life changed in
a positive way? We all
love to relive pleasant
memories and especially
enjoy getting together to
reminisce with those who,
shared those experiences.
Good memories can also
serve to bring us comfort
during difficult times in
our lives. More than once
during these challenging
teen years, I have pulled
out sweet baby pictures
of my children and
thought, "this too shall
pass!" However, I came
across a verse recently
that warns us of depend-
ing so heavily on those
past memories that we
fail to look or move for-
ward. In Isaiah 43:18-19,
the Bible has this to say:
"Forget the former
things; do not dwell on
the past.
See, I am doing a new
thing! Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?"
We often encourage
one another to "forget the
former things" if they are
painful, but this verse in-
vites us to consider the
tendency we have to hold
on to those good things in
the past at the expense of
anticipating a "new
thing" happening in our
lives. It is interesting that
we are seemingly in-
structed to "forget" and
yet this happens to be hu-
manly impossible. Inten-


tionally forgetting, that is.
When we forget some-
thing, it is never on pur-
pose, in fact, the more we
try to forget, the more we
remember! The motive of
this verse is to forget for-
mer things and not dwell
on the past as though
they are more important
than the future. If our full
attention is on the former
things, we can't very well
* participate in the present,
or the future!
In the book of Jeremiah
23:7-8, the Bible records
God's promise to Jeremi-
ah that He was about to
do a new thing in Israel.
"So then, the days are
coming," declares the
Lord, "when people will
no longer say, CEAs sure-
ly as the Lord lives, who
brought the Israelites up
out of Egypt," but they
will say, CEAs surely as
the Lord lives, who
brought the descendants
of Israel up out of the
land of the north and out
of all the countries where
he had banished them.,
Then they will live in
their own land."
This new thing would
be so momentous that it
would overshadow even
the parting of the Red Sea
and the exodus from
Egypt years before, it was
gonna be really BIG!
I want God to continu-
ally do a new thing in my
life, don't you? The best
news is this is what He
wants as well!! The sec-
ond part of this verse says
that when the new thing
is being accomplished, it


springs up, like a plant
sprouting. When a seed
is planted the waiting be-
gins, but so does the
watching. Keep checking
for a sprout. If you can't
see it today, check again
tomorrow. That kind of
interest takes concentra-
tion and attention, be-
cause if we aren't looking,
that sprout may spring
forth and go unnoticed.
This could be why He
asks, "Do you not per-
ceive it?" God is at work
all around us, in our riar-
riages, in our relation-
ships with our children,
at our jobs, etc. If we are
too absorbed with even
the good things from the
past, we just may miss it.
See, He may just be doing
a new thing in your life,
because your heart mat-
ters!
Blessings, Angie

Seeds from
the Sower
Michael A. Guido
A fellow was leaving a,
Veterans' Hospital, and a
friend said, "I didn't
know you were wound-
ed during the war."
"I wasn't wounded,"
he answered. "I was in-
jured."
"Which battle?" he
asked.
"It wasn't in a battle,"
he said, "I was running
from a battle."
As it was with him, so
it is with the soldiers of
the Lord. It's either duty
or desertion.
With Jonah it was de-
sertion. Running from
the Lord, he encountered
a smashing storm. Then
he was swallowed by a
great fish. You're never
safe when you're sin-
ning.
Be true to the Lord at
any cost. Do your duty,
your whole duty, and
nothing but your duty!


Welch celebrates with

surprise 80th birthday party!


The family of Betty
Jean Welch, formerly of
Mayo, held a surprise
80th birthday party for
her on August 15, in
West Branch, Michigan.
The party was organized
by her daughter, Susan
Amari and husband, of
Sapphire, North Caroli-
na, with the help of Bet-
ty's two sons, Terry
Hodges and Ron
Hodges and wives, both
of West Branch.
Nearly 60 people at-
tended the surprise
gathering, including
family from all over
Michigan. Relatives even
made the trip from as far
away as Mississippi and
a great-grandson from
California.
During the party, a


poem written by a fami-
ly friend was read by
Betty's son-in-law, Steve,
recapping memories of
her life. She was also
presented with over 100
cards sent by loved ones,
all of which she will
cherish forever.
After the passing of
her husband, Donovan,
last February, Betty
started a "Bucket List."
She has been checking
several of the "To-Do's"
off her list, such as an
airboat ride and trips to
Gatlinburg for her son's
wedding and to Tahqua-
menon Falls in Michi-
gan's Upper Peninsula.
Others soon to be
checked off include the
Sear's Annual Pig Roast
in Traverse City, Michi-


- C~s~o


gan, as well as a trip to
San Diego, the Grand
Canyon and, hopefully,
Yellowstone National
Park.
Thank you to everyone
for the cards, letters and
thoughtfulness.

"Double Feature" at Rotary Club meeting


Linda Smith
The Rotary Club of Mayo had a double feature at
the weekly meeting. Not only did they have sched-
uled speaker, Mary-Thomas Hart on the program,
but it was also a celebration party of long time mem-
ber, Angie Ceraso's 75th birthday, compliments of
his wife, Dolores.
The tables had been beautifully decorated with
white table cloths, flowers and golden plate holders,
yellow napkins, etc. All of the colors were of course,
Rotary colors. As Mrs. Ceraso stated earlier, "he
loves Rotary, so what better place to celebrate his
birthday." And so that is the way she planned it.
The meeting was also a landmark in that it made
43 years that Mr. "C" as he is fondly known, has been
a member of the Rotary Club.
Many good wishes were exchanged and a few sto-
ries of his earlier times in Lafayette County. As one
Rotarian stated, "I don't believe I have been to one
function held in Lafayette County that "Mr. C" has
not been present."
And following the delicious steak luncheon with
all the trimmings, including birthday cake and ice
cream, the featured speaker addressed Rotarians.
Mary-Thomas Hart is no stranger to speaking to Ro-
tarians or any number of large crowds. That seems to
be one of her specialties, "public speaking."
Hart has competed in many public speaking con-
tests and won many awards. Currently she is in the
process of preparing for the Public Speaking Com-
petition, on the state level in Daytona Beach. This
contest is sponsored by the Florida Farm Bureau.
According to Hart, the Farm Bureau chooses the top-
ic for the competition and then competitors have
several months to prepare themselves for the con-
test.
This year's theme is "What Challenges will Affect
the Sustainability of Florida Agriculture in the Fu-
ture?" Thomas placed first in the County and District
contests and now will move on to the state competi-
tion on October 20.
Presenting her speech to Rotarians was a practice
run for the state competition. According to Hart the
first place prize is $500 and of course she has her
sights set on bringing home that prize. And if her
speech at Rotary is any indication, it seems she has
a great chance of doing just that!

I started my college de-
gree. I graduated from
Santa Fe Community
SCollege in May of 2007.
In May of 2009, I gradu-
r ated from Barry Univer-
sity with a Bachelor's
Degree in Public Ad-
ministration.
t As a resident of
Lafayette County, I
have decided to take a
special interest in the
Safety and security of
Students, faculty; and
; staff members in the
School system. I hope to
have a successful first
year in Lafayette Coun-
ity. My definition of suc-
Scess will be that stu-
dents are able to attend
classes in a safe environ-
ment. Another impor-
tant part of my success
Swill be in working to-
gether with students
and their families to en-
- sure the safety of the
Members of the commu-
- nity that participate in
Activities held on cam-
pus.
Many times I see
young people face chal-
Slenges and they are un-
able to find support or
guidance in their family
structure. This indeed is
r a problem that the en-
Stire community will
need to stand up and
recognize. It is so im-
portant to give advice
Sand guidance to the
youth not only in words
Sbut in action. Showing
and giving respect in
the home setting is a
sure way of teaching
young people the values
they will need to suc-
ceed in life.
In recent news, thefts
are at an all time high
not only, in the county
but also on campus.
Please be aware of
where your personal be-
longings are at all times.
It is important to safe-
guard your valuables so
that no one will take
these items. Lockers
with locking mecha-
nisms are provided free
of charge for the stu-
dents. Please remind
students to utilize this
resource in order to
safeguard their posses-
sions.
In order to ensure the
safety of the students, I
will remind you that no
firearms or weapons are
to be brought on cam-
pus. Teachers, parents,
and students need to re-
member this because
hunting season is ap-
proaching. Please make


sure that you do not
bring weapons on cam-
pus. Having weapons
on campus is not only
against the law but it
also opens the door for
potential safety hazards.
I have thoroughly en-
joyed working with the
students so far this year.
It gives me great plea-
sure to see the students
overcome challenges
and work through is-
sues that build character
and prepare them for
their futures. I am al-
ways glad to assist the
students in these dilem-
mas. I am looking for-
ward to helping the stu-
dents achieve a sense of t
safety'at school so that
they can concentrate on
their education. Earning
an education is a chal-
lenge in itself, so by
keeping the campus safe
and free from drugs we
will make it a lot easier
on the students.

How safe is the Suwannee?


Continued From Page 1A

Mercury is a neurotox-
in that can damage the
nervous system and
cause learning disabili-
ties in unborn babies and
children 15 and younger.
"Mercury is a terribly
dangerous thing," said
Joan Stevens, president
of Save Our Suwannee.
"Not only does it affect
our air, but our water
too."
In the USGS study, the
most comprehensive yet
of rivers and streams in
the southeast, the high-
est levels of mercury in
fish were found in the
remote "blackwater"
streams flowing into
rivers such as the
Suwannee.
The Suwannee, how-
ever, is a unique case.
"It is an interesting sit-
uation on the Suwan-
nee," said Ted Lange, a
fisheries biologist with
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. "The levels
are all over the place. It
goes up and down The
Suwannee is the only
place we see such vari-
ability."
Lange and other re-
searchers are not sure
what causes such varia-
tions in levels of contam-
inants. Lange hypothe-
sizes that when the
Suwannee is dry mer-
cury falls on the riverbed
and is later soaked up in
large amounts by the
river when it rises. Dur-
ing the flooding -of the
Suwannee last spring,
mercury levels were
very high, said Lange.

Where does the
mercury come from?
Mercury is a naturally
occurring element. How-
ever, according to Lia
Chasar, co-author of the
USGS study, the main
source of mercury pollu-
tion is emissions from
coal-fired power plants
both in the U.S. and
abroad.
"Coal-fired power
plants are the largest
contributor," said
Chasar, a research hy-
drologist and ecologist.
Cement manufacturing
plants aren't far behind.
"The most of the mer-
cury in our waters come
from atmospheric depo-
sition," Chasar said in an
interview posted on the
USGS Web site. "That's
mercury that gets emit-
ted from coal-fire power
plants and waste incin-
eration as a by-product
of the cement chlorine."
Nonetheless, Lange
says it is Florida's wet
climate and the high
concentration of wet-
lands and forests sur-
rounding these rivers,
where bacteria flourish,
that result in higher mer-
cury levels in "blacktwa-
ter," or tea-colored,
rivers and streams. Mer-
cury released into the at-
mosphere here and over-
seas rains down into wa-
terways where it mixes
with certain bacteria and
converts into methyl
mercury, a form that al-
lows the toxin to enter
the food chain, accord-
ing to Lange. Because it
rains more in Florida,
there is more mercury
leaving the atmosphere
and entering waterways.


Mercury can travel from
as far away as China's
many coal-fired plants
and end up in the
Suwannee River system,
said Lange.
"It is an atmospheric
problem," Lange contin-
ued. "Mercury pollution
is a global problem with
local sources."
Scientists are seeing
"signs that there is a re-


gional footprint" in mer-
cury pollution in our
area, said Chasar. How-
ever, she did not explic-
itly link the problem to
local industry.
Tom Messer, plant
manager of Suwannee
American Cement in
Branford, said by email
that his facility was "one
of the lowest mercury
emitting cement plants
in the U.S. and well be-
low our permit limits,
even so we are constant-
ly working with envi-
ronmental scientists and
professionals in finding
technologies to reduce
these amount."
Unless mercury emis-
sions are lowered we
will continue to see fish-
ing advisories, said
Lange. Already eight
types of fish in the
Suwannee River system
have eating restrictions
due to the high mercury
levels. The restrictions
range from a recommen-
dation of a single six-
ounce meal per week of
channel catfish to just
one per month of large-
mouth bass, bowfin and
gar. Women of child-
bearing age and children
under fifteen should
only have one meal of
channel catfish, large-
,mouth bass, bowfin and
gar per month. Although
small fish such as bream
are safest to eat, they are
also included in the ad-
visories.
The USGS study,
which from 1998 to 2005
sampled fish across the
nation, including bass,
catfish and bream, from
over 291 streams and
found mercury in every
fish tested. Within the
southeast, Florida had
the highest levels of mer-
cury contamination in
fish, with the Suwannee
River system showing
levels exceeding many
rivers across the state.
and country, said
Chasar. "The Suwannee
is up there," said Chasar.
Ponds and lakes also
suffer mercury contami-
nation. "We know that
roughly the same
amount of mercury falls
from the atmosphere
within a local area
(North Florida); howev-
er, we find different lev-
els of mercury in fish
from various waterbod-
ies. Much of this is de-
pendent upon individ-
ual waterbody charac-
teristics including char-
acteristics of the water-
shed (size and types of
landcover within the
watershed), the water-
body itself (water chem-
istry and size) and the
fish themselves (what
species and age). So mer-
cury levels vary consid-
erably from lake to lake
and unless we test fish
(in that particular lake or
pond) we really don't
know their mercury con-
tent," said Lange by
email.

Not a new problem
In 1983 an FWC study
was conducted of the
Chipola River after re-
ports of contamination
from a battery plant.
Fish from. the Chipola
were compared to fish
from the Santa Fe. Mer-
cury levels in the Santa
Fe proved to be signifi-
cantly higher. These


ceeded the EPA's safe
level of mercury con-
sumption. Still, Chasar
says scientists are not
suggesting eliminating
fish from diets.
"We're not telling peo-
ple not to eat fish, just to
make wise choices," said
Chasar.
For example, one
should closely monitor
the types of fish one
consumes and the
amount, according to
the Florida Department
of Health. "Advisories
are not intended to dis-
courage anglers from
eating fish but should be
used to choose'fish low-
er in mercury while lim-
iting consumption of
some species of fish
from certain waters," ac-
cording to the DOH
Web site. The site states
that fish with long lifes-
pans, such as large-
mouth bass, create the


greatest potential to ac-
cumulate high levels of
mercury.
Mercury contamina-
tion raises other con-
cerns as well. For one,
mercury does not affect
humans alone. The toxin
has been proven to harm
the reproductive sys-
tems of forest animals
and birds. Furthermore,
while humans can eat a
certain amount of fish
contaminated below 0.3
parts per million,
wildlife may be harmed
by eating fish with any-
thing over 0.1 parts per
million, making the cur-
rent condition of the
Suwannee especially
dangerous for local
wildlife. More than two-
thirds of the fish sam-
pled across the country
had a concentration that
was unsafe for wildlife,
according to the study.
"We hope our study will


call attention to the sen-
sitivity of ecosystems
here in the southeast,"
Chasar said.
The recession and
overall popularity of
fishing locally add an-
other dimension. "We've
seen an increase in peo-
ple fishing for food,"
said Trea Reeves, of Pid-
dlers bait and tackle
shop in Branford. "We've
seen a dramatic decrease
in overall sales. There
are not as many tourna-
ment fishermen since the
downturn of the econo-
my. Plastic sales have
gone down. However,
live bait sales have gone
up."
In Lafayette County,
Mayo Bait and Tackle,
which also sells fish for
human consumption, re-
ports a drastic decrease
in sales of mullet and
other food fish.
"People are poor
around here, they've al-
ways fished for food,"


said Randy Johns, an
avid Hamilton County
fisherman. Johns says he
eats fish twice a week,
including bass, catfish
and gar. As far as mer-
cury pollution, he says
he is "not worried about
it" and plans to keep
fishing as usual.

Where do we
go from here?
Lange says we must
start with alternatives to
fossil fuels and technolo-
gies, now available, that
decrease emissions.
"They are expensive,
but there are technolo-
gies available," he said.
For now, the majority
of fish in the Suwannee
are safe to eat, but will
that still be the case in 20
years? No one can say
for sure.
"We put it (mercury
contamination) up there,
so it is conceivable that
we can lower it," said
Lange.


findings first lead re-
searchers to believe mer-
cury pollution was a
statewide problem near-
ly 30 years ago.
Considering the re-
sults of these earlier
studies, Chasar and
Lange did not seem sur-
prised by the findings of
this most recent study, in
which more than one-
quarter of fish tested ex-

The weekly allocation
of dosages made avail-
able to the health depart-
ment may vary, Black-
mon said.
The health department
will set up points of dis-
persion (P.O.D.s) around
the county to aide in get-
ting vaccination shots to
members of the public,
said Nursing Director
Wanda Crowe, of the


health department.
P.O.D. locations where
vaccines will be admin-
istered include: the
Lafayette County Health
Department, all local
schools, the Mayo Com-
munity Center, District 3
Community Center, Dis-
trict 4 Community Cen-
ter and Day Town Com-
munity Center.
In Suwannee County,
vaccines will be avail-

located on Nobles Ferry
Road in Live Oak, all


county schools, the Exhi-
bition Hall II at the
Suwannee County Coli-
seum, Hatch Park in
Branford, the Advent
Christian Village, Spirit
of the Suwannee Music
Park and Wellborn Bap-
tist Church.
Individuals 10 years or
older will only be re-

into local elementary
schools 21 to 28 days af-
ter the first treatment.
The nasal vaccine is only
recommended for
healthy and non-preg-
nant individuals ages 2
to 49.
"Immunity develops 8
to 10 days after a person
receives the vaccines,"
Crowe said.
Infants younger than 6
months old are not al-
lowed to receive vaccina-
tion treatment. There-
fore, health department
officials recommend that
all caregivers and those
who work closely with
infants receive the vac-
cine. *
As previously report-
ed, 99 percent of flu cas-
es that have taken place
lately are considered
H1N1, as opposed to
seasonal flu. Most cases


have occurred within
people below age 24. The
state stopped counting
individual cases on July
29 as numbers rose to an
estimated 60,000. By
Sept. 29, 102 death were
attributed to H1N1, ac-
cording to state health
records.
"Most doctors are di-
agnosing H1N1 by
symptoms, rather than
with test swabs, except
for in cases where indi-
viduals are already hos-
pitalized, Blackmon
said.
Symptoms may in-
clude fevers, coughing,
sore throats, runny nose,
body aches, chills, fa-
tigue, headache, vomit-
ing and diarrhea.
Blackmon recom-
mends that people de-
velop a habit of keeping
their hands sanitized


and learn to cover their
coughs by coughing into
their sleeve. The H1N1
virus germ can live on
surfaces between two to
eight hours, she said.
If a person is sick with
the flu, she said, only one
person should act as a
caregiver so that the ill-
ness is not further
spread.
"A person should only
return to work or school
after they have been
Without fever or without
medication for 24 hours
and show no further
symptoms," Blackmon
said.
If anyone thinks they
have H1N1, they should
contact their doctor im-
mediately.
"We know that we can-
not stop H1N1, but our
purpose is to alert peo-
ple, not to scare them."


Shades of '76?


Continued From Page 1A

its Web site that the sea-
sonal influenza vaccine
has not been consistently
associated with Guillain-
Barre syndrome (GBS), a
disorder in which a per-
son's own immune sys-
tem damages nerve cells,
causing muscle weak-
ness and sometimes
paralysis. In rare cases,
people have died of GBS.
In 1976, scientists re-
ported a link between
the disorder and vacci-
nations for swine flu ad-
ministered that year.
About 500 cases of GBS
were attributed to the
vaccine. Roughly 45 mil-
lion people were inocu-
lated that year:
However, researchers
say they "do not expect
GBS cases to occur after
vaccination with the
2009 H1N1 vaccine."
However, GBS can oc-
cur naturally. According
to the CDC, 3,000 to
6,000 people in the Unit-
ed States develop GBS
every year, whether or
not they were vaccinat-
ed. That's 1 or 2 per
1,000,000.
"Since 1976, numerous
studies have been done
to evaluate if other flu
vaccines were associated
with GBS. In most stud-
ies, no association was
found, but two studies
suggested that approxi-


mately 1 additional per-
son out of 1 million vac-
cinated people may be at
risk for GBS associated
with the seasonal in-
fluenza vaccine."
The 1976 vaccination
program was halted
when CDC determined
that "vaccine recipients
had a higher risk for GBS
than those who were not
vaccinated."
Health officials say
they will keep a close eye
on the situation this time
around.
"To monitor whether
people who receive the
2009 H1N1 vaccine have
an increased risk for
GBS, U.S. public health
officials will determine if
the number of GBS cases
reported among people
who receive the 2009
H1N1 vaccine is higher
than the number of cases
reported in the general
population," the CDC
Web site notes.
Local officials also be-
lieve things will go
smoother this time.
"The H1N1 vaccine
has been produced in the
same way the seasonal
flu vaccine has been
made for years," said
Pamela Blackmon, ad-
ministrator of the
Lafayette County Health
Department. "The clini-
cal trials have found the
vaccine to be safe and ef-
fective in preventing


H1N1."
Shifting gears, the
CDC says the FDA will
be manufacturing the
2009 H1N1 vaccines in'
several formulations,
some of which will come
in multi-dose vials con-
taining thimerosal as a
preservative.
"Thimerosal is a mer-
cury-based preservative
that has been used for
decades in the United
States in multi-dose vials
of some vaccines to pre-
vent the growth of mi-
croorganisms, such as
bacteria and fungi,
which may contaminate
them," the CDC states.
"Some vaccine manu-
facturers"will be produc-
ing 2009 H1N1 influenza
vaccine in single-dose
units, which will not re-
quire the use of
thimerosal as a preserva-
tive."
The CDC states that it
is "aware that the pres-
ence of the preservative
thimerosal in vaccines
and suggestions of a re-
lationship with autism
has raised- concerns."
However, "numerous
studies have found no
association between
thimerosal exposure and
autism," the center
states.
The intranasal H1N1
vaccine will hot contain
thimerosal, according to
the CDC.

15th Annual Little Miss Pioneer Day 2009


The three lucky names were picked
from a random drawing for "Little
Miss Pioneer Day 2009" on Saturday,
September 26, 2009. This was a day of
much anticipation for many young
girls trying their luck at the title of
"Little Miss Pioneer Day." This annual
event had a total of 53 participating,
from ages 4-12 years old.
The winner for the 4-5 age division
was Miss Calyn Prine. She is four
years old .and attends Pre-K at Wee
Care. This was her very first time en-
tering. She is the daughter of Scott
Prine. Calyn likes princess things and
loves watching TV. Bailey Lawson,
Little Miss Pioneer Day 2008, was on
hand to crown her successor.
The winner for the 6-9 age division
was Miss Brianna Lentz. Brianna is
seven years old and attends Lafayette
Elementary School. This was also her
first time entering. She is the daughter
of Mike and Shelley Bearden. Brianna
likes dance, ballet, baton and reading.
Tanya Buchanan, 2008 Little Miss Pio-
neer Day, crowned her successor.
The winner for the 10-12 age divi-
sion was Kimberly Bearden. Kimberly
is 12 years old and attends Lafayette
High School. This was her second time
entering. She is the daughter of Mike
and Shelley Bearden also. Kimberly
enjoys dance, ballet and swimming.
Taylor Rackley the 2008 "Little Miss
Pioneer Day, was on hand to crown


her successor.
Congratulations to the three lucky
winners! The winners received a sash,
a crown and flowers.

Dear Classified Guys,
When it comes to selling a home,
how important are good neighbors?
My neighbors are very friendly peo-
ple, but they have a few quirks that
can catch you off guard. Both the
husband and wife mow their lawn in
bikinis to work on their suntans. It
may sound exciting, but as nice as
they are, they sure wouldn't win any
beauty contests! The first time I saw
them years ago, I was shocked. To
make matters worse, they hang out
their underwear and other unmen-
tionables on the patio for all to see. I
know you can't choose your neigh-
bors, but now that I've put my house
up for sale, I'm worried. I doubt that
asking them to add a layer or two
while mowing the lawn would work,
nor would asking them to put their
unmentionables in the dryer. While
some people say I need to
tell potential buyers about
the neighbors, others say .
there's no problem. What -
should I do? Do I need to
mention the unmentionables
to interested parties?
Cash: Although you may not like
your neighbor's choice of yard-wear
fashion, it doesn't sound like they're

exposing you to that much of a prob-
lem! It's possible you're worrying for
no reason.
Carry: It is true that you can't always
choose your neighbors. And most of us
have our idiosyncrasies that others may
not appreciate. Your neighbor's choice
of attire and laundry drying may not be
your cup of tea, but the good news
is...you're moving!
Cash: As for selling your home,
you're not likely to have a problem
either. Many buyers take the time to
consider all sorts of issues such as
house condition, schools and even the
neighborhood. However, despite how
important it can be, they rarely take


into account the actual neighbors.
Carry: If you are still worried, avoid
laundry day or show your house during
the week when your neighbors are less
likely to be doing yard work. But more
importantly, focus your attention on all
the great attributes of the house, rather
than the neighbor's unmentionables.
Cash: Remember that your neigh-
bors are not doing anything wrong.
While you are obligated to disclose
things about your home to potential
buyers, your opinion of the neighbor's
attire is not one of them.
Carry: Besides, you never know
what the new owners will like to wear
when they mow their lawn!


Jonesing
Many people judge how well they
are doing in life by comparing them-
selves to their neighbors, often referred
to as "Keeping up with the Joneses".
But where did the phrase originate? It's
actually a term popularized by a comic
strip of the same name created by
Arthur Momand in 1913. After living
in Cedarhurst, New York and experi-
encing people trying to keep up with
the well-to-do class, he and his wife
moved to a cheap apartment in
Manhattan. He used his experiences in
Cedarhurst to create the comic strip that
ran in newspapers for 28 years.
In the Neighborhood
Being a good neighbor can have its
benefits. The Department of'Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) offers
a "Good Neighbor Next Door Sales
Program". The program, available to
law enforcement officers, teachers, fire-
fighters and emergency medical techni-
cians, offers a 50% discount off the list
price of pre-selected homes located in
revitalization areas. To receive the dis-
count, owners are required to live in the
home for a period of 36 months.
Got a question, funny story, or just want to give
us your opinion? We want to hear all about it
Emall us at comments@classifledguys.com.


Backfire
My two boys have started playing
practical jokes around the neighbor-
hood. While most of their pranks are
harmless, like moving lawn orna-
ments or turning on sprinklers at
night, they've begun to get a little
more mischievous.
Last week they played a joke on my
neighbor next door. It seems he went
to use the lawnmower he kept on his
back porch and found that the kids
had removed two wheels and propped
it up on blocks. When he realized it
was another prank, he had no choice
but to call and tell me about it.
"I'm so sorry," I started to apologize.
"Oh there's no need to apologize to
me," he interrupted. "1 borrowed the
mower from your husband last week!"
(Thanks to Gina B.)

Did you know?

here is both primary as well as secondary lung cancer. Primary lung cancer
actually starts in the lungs, and the cancer cells are actually abnormal lung cells.
Secondary lung cancer occurs when cancer from another part of the body travels,
or metastasizes, to the hlngs. This is referred to as secondary because the lungs ar
secondary when compared to the primary location of the cancer. Secondary lung
cancer actually has a different course of treatment than primary lung cancer, and
that's because secondary lung cancer is not actually lung cancer. Rather, secondary
lung cancer is considered to-be whichever type of cancer initially invaded the
body. For example, a woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer and then has
that cancer metastasize into the lungs is not considered to have lung cancer.
Rather, the metastasized cancer is still considered breast cancer, even though it has
since spread to the lungs. To learn more, visit the American Cancer society Web
site atwww.cancer.org.

added the Chevrolet-Cadillac-Nissan franchises to
their operations in Lake City.
The deal is through the purchase of Eddie
Accardi Chevrolet-Mazda and Hopkins Motor
Company.
Most of the employees of the Accardi and the
Hopkins companies have been moved to one of the
existing dealerships, according to a spokesman for
the Rountree-Moore group. The Hopkins location
will be closed.
Details about the future of the dealership
property were not revealed. The Mazda franchise
will no longer operate in Lake City. The Chevrolet
store will retain Mazda mechanics for routine


service at the 4316 West US 90 location. The
businesses will operate under the name of
Rountree-Moore, Chevrolet-Cadillac-Nissan,
Rountree-Moore Ford-Lincoln-Mercury and
Rountree-Moore Toyota-Scion.
Manufacturers' warranties from the various
models will be honored by Rountree-Moore.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisitions are the latest of several changes
this year involving North Florida dealerships;
whose stores faced financial struggles in a
recession that has dramatically slowed domestic
vehicle sales.
Chevrolet, Cadillac and Nissan will be moved to
the Accardi location. The state of Florida has
approved the purchases from Rountree-Moore as
well as the automobile factories involved.


"We're a company evolving to meet he changing
climate of this market," stated Chevrolet-Cadillac-
Nissan general manager Grady Moore. According to
Moore, the company will offer one of the largest
collections of franchises in North Florida within one-
mile 'of each other. It will also boast one of the largest
inventories of pre-owned vehicles in the area.

Irish traditional trio


to perform at


'Free Fridays' series
ir* eU ,s.


GAINESVILLE An Triur is
Irish Gaelic for "three people,"
describing the essential simplicity
of the group of the same name and
their music. The group is a bi-
coastal Irish traditional trio that
formed in Gainesville in 2006. An
Triur is made up of Larre Reeves on
flute, whistle, bodhran and
concertina; John Maze on uilleann
pipe, whistle, bodhran and
accordion; and Mick Richmond on
vocal, whistle, guitar and bouzouki.
Reeves and Maze are award-
winning Irish traditional musicians,
teachers, recording artists and
performers.
Whereas Irish traditional music is
not indigenous to central Florida,
there is a strong Irish music and
dance community in Gainesville. At
the concert, the band will be joined
on stage by a dance group from the
Williston School of Irish Dance led
by Sarah Ingley and solo dancer
Elijah Eyerly, both of whom are
champion Irish dancers. In the past,
band members Larre Reeves and
John Maze performed with dance
groups such as Inisheer (founded by
Piper Call) and the Hogan School of
Irish Dance (founded by dance
champion Allison Hogan). An Tridr
has participated in open Irish


Traditional music sessions at the
Shamrock Irish Pub, Durty Nelly's
Irish Pub and, most recently,
Brophy's Irish Pub.
Reeves grew up in an Irish-
American family in south Florida
and has played around the U.S. and
abroad. He is a founding member of
the Blue Druids, Coyne and Reeves
and An Triir. Maze grew up in a
Scots-Irish family in Appalachian
Virginia, learning the rare Irish
uilleann bagpipes and founding the
Ryegrass Rollers and An Triir with
Reeves and Richmond. Both have
played with various ensembles
including the world famous
Chieftains. Richmond, now living
in Portland, Ore., is a stalwart .
Gainesville musician who is a
founding member of such local
favorites as Skatterbrainz and Spike
the Cat. Coming from a rock and
ska background, he followed his
Irish-American roots into Irish
traditional music in the past several
years. A native Floridian,
Richmond brings a funk and an
edge to the trio as the principle
songwriter and arranger of vocals
and accompaniment.
Irish traditional music dates back
hundreds of years and was carried
to the U.S. by early immigrants. It


developed and expanded in
popularity throughout cities such as
New York, Boston, Chicago and
,iBaltmore. The music also spread
into rural areas of the early U.S.
such as the Appalachian Mountains
where farming Irish immigrants
tended to move their communities
after the great potato famine of the
mid-18th century. An Triir
recordings are available on iTunes,
Sas well as on their Web site
www.myspace.com/antriur.
The Downtown Plaza "Free
Friday" concerts run from 8 p.m. to
10 p.m. every Friday night this year
from May 1 through October 30.
The Bo Diddley Community Plaza
is located on the corner of Southeast
First Street and East University
Avenue. The complete schedule for
the Downtown Plaza "Free Fridays"
and links to the bands' Web sites
can be found at
www.gvlculturalaffairs.org or at

Gainesville's Arts Events Hotline at
